Much of them involving race. Very, very, very sensitive companies and brands involving race and When FedEx Field is the name of the field in Fenix.

Washington Redskins shedding name after 87 years
"Is changing its name. In a statement today, the Redskins confirmed they're retiring that name and their logo NPR sports correspondent Tom Goldman is following this story time. Good morning. Morning, Steve. I've paid attention to the city where I lives football team for some years and I remembered a quote went looked it up and it was accurate in 2013. Dan Snyder, the owner, said quote We will never change the name of the team. So what changed? Yeah, And he also said all caps. You can write that in all caps. So Steve in all caps were were saying today that Washington Redskins are retiring that name. As you said a very brief statement. The team released the name The logo are will be gone. So after 87 years of having this name and decades of protest against it, it is gone. Don't know the new name. We don't know yet, You know in this brief statement, It also said that Washington owner Dan Snyder and head coach Ron Rivera are working closely to develop a new name and design an approach that will enhance the standing of our proud tradition rich franchise and inspire our sponsors, fans and community for the next 100 years. The delay right now reportedly is having to work out trademark issues. Some of the most popular names, though, that have been mentioned the red wolves, the Warriors, the red tails in honor of the Tuskegee Airman, the African American fighter squadron that flew in World War two. Their planes had crimson tails, so those could be possibilities. Well, let's remember what the argument was about here. For many, many years, the team had been accused of having a racist name and a racist logo. They had resisted and said they were honoring Native Americans and In various ways and clear the clearly There was a lot of money at stake on that would be one reason that Dan Snyder had said We're not going anywhere with this name. What made this moment? Different? Well, as you well know, there have been, you know, as you say, protests reaching back to the 19 seventies, but obviously the pressure really mounted since the police killing of George Floyd in late May. You know, we have seen a number of symbols, flags and statues change and come down and the Washington team wasn't immune to that pressure, but But, you know, I hate to be cynical here, Steve. But what really got them thinking hard was when sponsors made it clear there needed to be a change FedEx whose name is on the stadium. In Maryland, Pepsi, Nike to name a few All said they wanted changed another important factor The team has wanted to relocate to Washington, D. C. It's original home. FedEx Field is in Maryland. The team practices in Virginia, DC politicians say we'd love to have you back, but you've got to change the name of your team. So that that factored in as well. Our other teams facing similar pressure. Yes, they are, whether they will respond the same way. We don't know. The Cleveland Indians of Major League Baseball report earlier discussing a change the Atlanta Braves of Majorly of Major League Baseball say they won't change their name, but reportedly, they're mulling whether or not to prohibit the Tomahawk chop. The chant and the chopping motion that fans used during games. You know, lots of college teams over the years of jettison controversial names with not a lot of pushback. There will be a long time. Washington fans upset about this because it is changing a long held tradition, but the team will go forward. Tom. Thanks very much.

The Racial Justice Reckoning Over Sports Team Names Is Spreading
"Trump Trump weighed weighed in in this this week week on on the the Washington Washington NFL NFL team team and and the the Cleveland Cleveland Indians Indians baseball baseball team. team. Considering Considering changing changing their their names, names, names that native Americans have long said are racist. Both franchises announced they're reviewing their names and changes maybe coming before. 2020 NFL and Major League Baseball season's begin perspectives producer ABC is Eric Mollo has more with America In the midst of a reckoning over racial inequality. More athletes are continuing to speak out across the sports world. By noon, Stanford was right. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Cuyler Murray announcing he'll be taking any during the playing of the national anthem this year, one of several players pledging to stand in solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who knelt during the playing of the national anthem to protest police brutality and social injustice. Erica. Over the past week, There's been another reckoning in sports, whether to change team names or logos that contain Native American emblems. In stereotypes. There is time to Move for Major League Baseball's Cleveland Indians announced they're considering changing the team's name manager Terry Francona feels now is an appropriate time for change Older. We're never trying to be disrespectful. I still feel that way, but I don't think that's a good enough answer. Today. The announcement comes a little over a year after Cleveland removed its chief Wahoo logo, a cartoonish caricature of a native American man long considered racist. It also came shortly after the announcement at Washington's NFL franchises weighing whether to change its team name, which is widely regarded as a racial slur. Julian Brave Noise Cat contributes to ESPN is the undefeated He writes that the team name references Native American skin color. In the bloody scouts of indigenous People taken his bounty by white colonists. If a group of people are speaking out about the racism of a team logo, it's It's quite the thing to go and claim that actually know you are honoring them, and it's hard for me to imagine the same thing happening for another racial group in the United States. Team owner Dan Snyder has bound for years. He never changed the name. Saying the term actually embodies honor, respect and pride. Protesters and advocacy groups have called for change for decades. But on ly in the face of mounting economic pressure did Snyder finally announced they're reconsidering investors with major sponsors from Pepsi. FedEx in Nike sent letters asking the companies to terminate their relationship with Washington unless it agreed to a name change, which you know kind of exciting on the one hand, but the reality it reveals about the power of capital. In our culture and society is a little bit of a downer for me. But those two franchises don't stand alone. A world without native mascots is the ideal world. Nick Marin is a member of this a pony tribe in a staff writer for the New Republic any kind of imagery like that and specifically as it relates to native people, because we have been made invisible, forcibly the idea that we would You get rid of the walking Jim NFL team and keep the Kansas City Chiefs It speaks a certain hollowness that I think this kind of corporate social justice campaigns often involve the Kansas City Chiefs. Atlanta Braves in Chicago Blackhawks are among professional franchises that continue to employ Native American imagery on their jerseys in their team names and in cheers by fans has become a very normalized thing, which I think is common place with a lot of systems and forms of institution. Oppression. These things we don't think of them in the moment as being particularly egregious because they've become so normalized in society. Those franchises aren't following the lead of Washington in Cleveland. None of them announce name changes, though Atlanta is reportedly considering no longer allowing the Tomahawk chop chance at games, and the Blackhawks went on to say that their team name and logo symbolizes an important native American figure. And they aren't moving toward formal change. It reduces you to a caricature there, 570 plus tribal nations. That's 570 plus tribal cultures. Any kind of idea that, like there is one kind of Indian is very reductionist kind of view of US. President Trump even weighed in this week via Twitter, saying the names of Washington's in Cleveland's teams Signify strength and not weakness, and they're merely considering the change to be politically correct. The president's statement in the very decisions of these franchises do raise questions isn't important to distinguish between the offensiveness of each individual team name, and is any of this iconography, actually honor or respect the Native Americans? Or in same team names and logos on our native people. Is that merely perpetuating cultural appropriation and the use of stereotypical Native American imagery, Martin says. It's not that slippery of a slope. If you're saying our mascot, our team name is not as racist as Washington NFL team still an admission that it is races, Washington's head coach, Ron Rivera, who is one of four minority head coaches in the NFL, told The Washington Post. It would be awesome if the team changed its name. In the National Congress of American Indians have long opposed the use of Native American stereotypical imagery in professional sports. As professional sports franchises are choosing to reexamine these issues in the midst of America's reckoning over race relations, they're faced with a new choice. Well, economic pressures determine if they choose to rename their teams or will they listen to decades long calls from Native American advocacy groups to eliminate the use of these emblems of the only reasons happening so swiftly is because their this is something that native people years of ground Work into and so what this moment kind of larger cultural reckoning has become. It's just kind of an impetus to say Okay, Now is the time to finally get rid of these things.

"fedex" Discussed on Social Pros Podcast
"We are seeing much heavier in a faster growth in the instagram conversation In the number of times that were mentioned on that platform People using that direct message function same with Facebook Messenger. I think the conversation has really shifted from a people posting on our wall to people sending US messages on Facebook Messenger but by far instagram has been has seen the most growth in recent days there was also a shift whenever twitter switched their platform from a social media platform in the APP store to a news platform in the APP store. We I think that's what we saw a big shift in the conversation there because we were still really heavily mentioned on twitter especially for customer service reasons. I know there's a ton of people who only have twitter accounts for customer service complaints. Like that's the only reason they ever use it. So we see our share of those But we see way more news on twitter now than we have in the past so I would say. Twitter has shifted therapy. Because it's more newsy. It's more what's happening right now. Versus that traditional customer service is what I had for lunch type of platform that was previously so obviously with social chatter. You as you had mentioned. There's some things you have to deal with customer complaints. Obviously you mentioned you know doorbell videos and things like that. But there's also a lot of good chatter happening to and you're T- recently just did a huge campaign highlighting some of these really amazing sort of Going the extra mile and doing the extra effort type of things. Tell us about this this amazing campaign that you did. Yes oh I could talk about this in my sleep. Okay so this is made possible by so I'm going to start from the very beginning Several years ago we started finding these types of posts on social media and sharing them without tying them into a campaign. We had team members who were literally save people's lives. They would get out of their truck and they would go rescue people from a burning car or they help people when they saw a wreck on the side of the road or they would jump into a pond to save somebody from submerging car which I mean actual stories these stories morphed into a mini campaign that we call delivering thinks. And so we would say we're delivering things to Eric for rescuing somebody from a a car wreck Whatever it might be And these posters took off. I mean they were. They were the best performing pieces of content. That we have ever seen in the history of Fedex. Ever hands down I'm talking you know we used to have a few hundred likes on average on post and as soon as we started sharing this content organically We would have thousand thousands and then we would. Obviously we could use pay boost post that were preferring well and we would see hundreds of thousands of lights on these types of it was it was incredible to see them take off like wildfire and we knew we had something. So we continue that delivering Delivering thanks campaign for a few years. And this last year in June of Twenty nineteen. We worked with the new agency and we really were tasked with the this. I guess the assignment was. How do we take this campaign? And how do we talk about our team members in a way? That's going to become more engaging that is bigger it's tied to our our. We have a purpose. That's connecting people impossibilities around the world. So what can we do to happen to that and to make this bigger so the made possible by campaign was born and what we did was found stories which I mean when you have four hundred ninety thousand team members around the world these stories will come pouring into you But we found team members. Were doing wonderful things whether it's saving people that are in life threatening positions or if they are rescuing puppies or Trying to help somebody get surgery because they There's a hole. The first the first story there was about a person Jamaica who helped a child get the surgery that he needed through this program that Fedex had sponsored and he went through so many jump through so many hoops to make it happen in the able to get a surgery and there was all because of this team member who went the extra mile for them so we highlighted him to kick it off And these stories are they. They're so great internally and externally so internally at Fedex we have. We've got so many team members that are on our facebook page and they're seeing our social media content and they are active. They are commenting on this. This content as well so Some of the stories that we post on facebook for example they highlight couriers. Who are also on facebook and the couriers will get in there and start saying like thank you so much for highly me or I show sharing my story and people will start talking to the courier and the comments and it just you know it. It gets really cool to see how it conversation plays out so culturally. I think our our team members can see themselves in these stories and it just really helps to create a just paint them in a positive light Because so much of what you see on social media is negative. It's about people complaining. And this really helps. Combat that and and elevate our team members to showcase the ones that are doing good things for the community and when you highlight them and social media to it. It helps make that attitude contagious. People want to be part of the the percentage of team members who are doing great things for their community so I mean. Recently we've seen tons of video shared of our couriers who are there's one that was folding a flak that fallen on the ground when it was shoveling snow for a customer when their their doorstep was just completely covered. We've had a few of those We've actually just had another flag folding story that popped up yesterday maybe so I mean yeah. There's I mean there's a there are so many great things that are team members are doing small things and big things that we can highlight to this campaign and they've been outperforming all of the content that we've that we've been pushing out there. It's really awesome to see and it's. It's a heartwarming campaign to be a part of also Alex is made possible by program is just phenomenal. And you articulated. Why it's optimistic. It has that third party credibility. Because you're not it's not fedex corporate talking about Fedex but it's your carriers and your teams and and other people who were talking in this case positively about about your brand. It's just phenomenal. I think also for me in this kind of gets to my question cut helps me realize the scale at which your organization operates you mentioned six seven thousand mentions a day a half a million employees one of the largest fleets of aircraft and vehicles in rickshaws and the entire in the entire world. My question is how from where you sit as global social media manager there in Memphis Tennessee. How do you work kind of outside of your world? Which is the marketing communications? World going to ask you how you with three different teams I would be. Hr because again. You're dealing with a half a million people who are out there. Tweeting on behalf of the company. In almost all instances positively inappropriately but every now and then maybe something not so appropriate number two customer service because so many of those six or seven thousand missions our customers who are asking whether packages or whereas they're courier or why didn't you pick this up. You know good bad indifferent. And then the third kind of audience at I'll be really curious about would be the operations so the actual running of Fedex where most of those half a million employees set. How'd you kind of work in coordinate with those different departments? Yes okay. That is a very good question. I'm going to rearrange the order in which you asked about so i WanNa talk about customer service because we work with them more than anybody else on a daily basis really The person on my team. Who's managing those That issue management? Who's doing the listening is the one who interacts with them on the rag all the time. They are the critical partners to us. So the reason is that we we see the good the bad the ugly about Fedex across social media especially this person. Who's doing that issue management anytime? She sees something she knows. Our Customer Service Team has not address slip through the cracks or that there is somebody with a massive following or something's gaining traction That they need to nip in the bud immediately or take immediate action on she reaches out to There's an escalation list that we send it up to so There's social media managers and our customer service managers directors who are responsible for the customer service reps on social media who take action on that So the way that we kind of divide and conquer social media with customer service they are actively monitoring all of the mentions of Fedex. Whether it's a Hashtag Orson. At mentioned across our channels they use salesforce to interact with customers. And they've made huge strides. Recently they went from. I want to say the average response time. A few years ago was fifteen hours is what it was down to an eight minute. Response Time average which is incredible Especially across twitter so they they have really come along way and they're great at their jobs. They're really good at what they do. They're very responsive. So what we do is we just help supplement them. If we know that there's something that they maybe didn't see where that hasn't been pulled into salesforce or there's on case assigned to a customer. We help escalate that to them and say. Hey this is something you guys should probably be aware of and would be great if you could take action on. Because it's gaining traction social and we don't want it to become an issue because the most important thing for both of our teams is creating that great fedex experience we have what's called the Purple Promise here Fedex which is I will make every Fedex experience outstanding and so that's ultimately what we all want to do So we stay connected with them as much as we can to make sure that we are creating that great customer experience and nobody feels like their case is not as important as somebody else's so the next time I'll talk about. Hr WE WORK WITH HR on a couple of different in a couple of different ways. One proactively we need to understand from a recruitment standpoint. What are their biggest needs for? Woman created in content. What do we need to be highlighting about FEDEX? Or who are the audiences that we need to read in order to attract and retain talent within our company? The other way though and more of a reactive is we see content from some of our team members that we think we need to share with HR for consideration for social media guidelines because we build the social media guidelines for employees in conjunction with HR We will share. You know what we're seeing trends that we're seeing as far as social media interactions engagements new tools new platforms so as building out those refreshing those guidelines. We know okay. Here's some some new things that are coming. We may need to add to the guidelines because this is become a pattern social media over the last however year so and then the last one operations Operations is an interesting one for us. We I would say the the main way that we work with operations is through. Customer Service on a reactive basis. So if we know that there is somebody who is missing a package and it is critical and we see a way that we can step in and say. Hey you know maybe it's a Fedex express station manager. That is the closest one to a customer. Who's missing a wedding dress? We could reach out to the station manager and say we saw this post Obviously will work with our customer service team to make it happen but They can jump in action to make sure these people received the the items that they need but another way that we work with them is they are really great at submitting story ideas so a lot of our operations team members are on the frontline. They see these team members. And they're the ones interacting with customers. They know about the stories that we need to tell and so we we have a two way relationship. We get the stories from them. We create stories about our team members. Feed into that possible by campaign and then We work with them to make sure that our customers are getting. They need three audiences three very specific and accurate answers. Thank you for for that. I think that really helps our listeners. Who probably dealing with many of the same types of questions and dealing probably not at the scale at which you're you're dealing with. I do WanNa talk a little bit about measurement in. Roi You are a business. It's all about numbers and tracking everything. So I'm curious how you track performance of your team and social media at Fedex you as it relates to the great metric that you used around social customer care moving from your fifteen or eight hours two or fifty dollars to eight minutes type. Sla All the way to the efficacy of your post. How do you kind of set the bar for your team? Then how do you measure their performance.
"fedex" Discussed on Here & Now
"The torrent of news. Recently you may have missed an item about Amazon. It has blocked its third party sellers from using Fedex for delivery. Our next guest says that's another another sign of the coming collapse Fedex. Scott Galloway is professor of marketing at New York University. Stern School of business got welcome. Thanks very much German. Good to be here so you write eight something. That is pretty surprising. which is you say? In the next twenty four months Fedex will either be acquired or lose an additional forty percent plus in value. What why do you say that? So I think entire industries have now been what I call feature is and that is these Incredibly low margin difficult businesses are being used as components components to make high margin more scalable businesses stickier so you have what is arguably the most dominant firm and retail now using fulfilment as a means of trying to establish how much greater loyalty across their loyalty program in this case prime so I think Fedex is being featuring if you will. It's interesting because when I'm driving on the highway I'll I feel like I still see more Fedex trucks than Amazon prime trucks. But maybe that's wrong. No you do Amazon has a fraction of the capital expenditure of the Fedex but they start with several advantage. It's clean sheet design and also as big tax is becoming famous for the move to sort of this algorithm of exploitation and that what is there the reality is Amazon will have a much lower cost base because they will not have things like health benefits or paternity for their drivers in granted. That's not it's not true for all Fedex drivers some of them are contract workers but the caw space the cost structure will be lower. The technology will be better and to be blunt the film it and delivery is all about trust in the most trusted brand in the world right now is Amazon interesting and Amazon. I had a much better on time. Delivery performance over the holidays than index. That's correct some of this reality and some of it is perception in the financial markets. Perception is almost as important in that Amazon is now able to perform what I refer to as a Jedi. mind mind trick against Fedex. In the form of now that they are in the business or officially in the business of fulfillment in the last two years Fedex's shed about forty percent of its value while Amazon is increased. Its value thirty percent. And you're continue to see a further erosion and the Stock Price Fedex even if it's not supported by the fundamentals because the markets have come to believe that one Amazon sets sight on a industry that every other player in the industry begins to shed value to Amazon and the seeds a lot of advantages Amazon. Their cost of capital goes down in enables them to sort of fulfil the promise if you will or make their own future by massively investing in that category to the extent that other players can kind of best now why Fedex and such a worse position than the other big delivery service that we think of which is ups. I think Fedex has not innovated I I think internally they've been very focused or the CNN focused on tax avoidance and just as a consumer if you look at the experience whether it's the user interface there on time delivery relative to Amazon or ups they're just sub-standard. Signing Fedex is the most vulnerable of the logistics and fulfillment players and just to give our listeners. Some of the statistics here Amazon logistics is already shipping being over two and a half billion packages annually in the US three billion for Fedex in the US Four point seven billion for ups. That's according to WHO Morgan Stanley estimates. How did Amazon get into delivery and gained so much ground so quickly in the industry show Amazon? It's boring stuff. That out shareholder value Amazon opportunity to go vertical if you will control the front end of ECOMMERCE and that is the interface interface online with their retail offering and Amazon. It also puts Amazon strengths because this is exceptionally complicated. Takes incredible operational excellence facility with data and quite frankly access to billions and billions of dollars and cheap capital and Amazon. Has All of those things and Amazon is playing hardball with its competitors. It's blocked its third party sellers from even using Fedex not only that Germany but they announced a couple of weeks before Christmas publicly and to do that before the holidays and embarrass fat ax is kind of I acquire the now jailed uses staging a mock homecoming queens ceremony and then pouring pig's blood on somebody. This was this was is really calling fedex out and doing it at the worst moment possible. This was a strategic stabbing. If you will if you were advising Fred Smith at Fedex or the other leaders there. What would you tell them to do? So so the company Fedex is really behind the eight ball I think Fedex needs to sell to another player. I would argue. Are you the best or most likely candidate is Walmart. Who would then be like Amazon vertical automatic control the front end and control back in so my advice so I have to say hey Scott? I'm hearing you talk about this. And you obviously know this industry very well My big thought on this is With all of this movement to online shopping shopping and all this movement to delivering everything that we used to go out and buy. There's just so much more packaging are they thinking as much about reducing that amount of waste aced As they are about how to deliver things faster you know. That's a great question. I don't know if it's getting the attention of warrants. We've heard about a lot of you know plans for innovation and different types of packaging different types of materials. So I'd like to think they're thinking about this but the reality is that the music doesn't match the words yet. There's a lot more hype. There's a lot more words in their actual activity or action.

And you're doing the whole thing digitally you don't need to splurge unfed Xingfang last prophet poppy business for all right. So now let's talk about. Fedex is profit pig which is a product line. That's profitable but like not that profit. You're not you'll do the business. But you're not thrilled about it. And the prophet pig for Fedex. Fedex is e Commerce e commerce is something that Fedex historically. Wasn't that interested in fact when it officially broke up with Amazon last year Fedex. I was only delivering one. Point three percent of Amazon's packages to effectively deliver for like Walmart or target or like a Non Amazon E. Commerce. They need a better the ground game over at Fedex. Fedex is reluctantly GONNA keep doing e commerce and it's GonNa work with Walmart and target but it needs more trucks more facilities more than more more weekend shifts. It's even delivering on Sunday year round. All that is costly and that's why this is their prophet pig. They're not week as much profit at it. So Jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over. Fedex is shipping industry is growing but shipping is getting commodity online. Shoppers are spoiled. We expect packages to be livered overnight. Hip for free with no extra shipping and handling. I lost my headphones. Why aren't they here with me right now because I just ordered them I haven't heard the words shipping and handling since an infomercial from the ninety third? I think that was the life alert. The rotisserie showtime grill with at the Amish Campfire site so Amazon gives you shipping. They'll pay hey you two ship something. And they're also delivering half of their packages themselves. Fed ex is fighting in the mud. Too though and investors are depressed. They dropped the stock ten percent percent yesterday.

When there's no bottom in sight they need to start being more realistic? Stop calling bottoms second. They should stop giving guidance entirely if they can't make an accurate forecast when you don't know what's happening when you're overrun by events. It's better to remain silent and before the fool then to speak and removal doubt finally Fedex needs to stop trying to stay highly profitable and has since spent the money. They need to be competitive in a world where e-commerce is much faster than they ever expected expected. They need that. Take that darn head.

Hbo Apparently Watchmen not the game of thrones proved to be HBO show of the decade and I have to go back and review. And See if I've watched watchmen at all I'm doing right now. started season one of the expanse. I'm progressing through because I couldn't remember my in my Amazon prime account didn't remember where I left off. I'm in the season two if you episodes in now so probably binge-watch that throughout the holidays and see it all the way through four. But maybe I'll go back and I do have an HBO Plus or whatever accounts are probably going to watch the watchman as well maybe started season one in and go through that thing of watch a little bit of watching them and maybe not the two main away some stuff to watch over the holidays here apple news a strike to deal with the ABC to be able to provide election coverage to the apple news APP so ABC News provide live blue coverage of that. Coming Twenty twenty presidential election feature primary in general debates so Just what I don't need to watch T. MOBILE'S I five g phones or a stepping stone to the real bang in this article by the verge talks about how basically t mobile has really kinda hedged on their spectrum. And there's an image on this article that's perfect. It talks about dense urban and it talks about mid band metro and low ban nationwide so basically when they're in dense urban and they can do five G.. Really well they're going to then mid Ban Metros can be going to kind of be like Lt is today and then low ban nationwide's a little bit slower but has a much bigger density in other words it can. It can get places that signals can't otherwise based on the frequency so as they build this out of course what they want to see see is that the cake could can become complete but right. Now it's real narrow on the five G. Sign and mid band METRA's little bit smaller so ultimately you WanNa see all these the equal the it'll take many years for that to happen by think. T. Mobile's got a really good strategy here. So for those of you that are thinking about a service. You're thinking about switching. I think T. Mobile's got the right game plan. We'll see what happens here over time With that game plan but He and I can't complain on the T.. Mobile might buy that. Have that reminds. I need to think Anita cancel that now think I'm good most of the places I'm going now. I'm on wiped by very rarely. Do I need to other anymore. There's a controversial sale of a dot org. Domain managers are facing review at the manager. The excuse me can. Controversial sale of the DOT Org Demean Manager Faces Review at. I can so I can't as asking questions about the new owner and we'll have thirty days to make a decision they can't they they're kind of limited in what they can do. But basically the dot org demane is managed by the Public Internet registry which is a subsidary of the Internet Society which is a nonprofit the Internet society is trying to sell pr to a private equity firm arm called Ethnos capital. And of course I can is worried that because they have released the restrictions on dot. Org pricing that. This new firm will come in and raise the price. Well Uh of course. That's what they're gonNA do. So all these prophets in a nonprofits uses the DOT. Org will probably facing more expensive demane renewables in the the picture the DOT org domain continues to be one of the cheapest ones out there'd be able to buy but most people don't so We'll see if the icon allows us to go through Boeing announced that they're going to halt production that troubled seven thirty seven master-plan in January.

Google told his Turkish business partners of will not be able to work with them on new android phones released in Turkey after the Turkeys Competition. Board rule changes Google made on it to to its contracts. Were not acceptable. So basic there in a big antitrust up there Turkey wants basically people have the easy ability to switch switch off Google search engine and variety of other things they want this to be easy for people using android in Turkey and basically. It's gotten to the point where Google said well. Hey any new phones coming out. We we can't help you We can't license android. Ta Because of this dispute. So Google is playing a little hardball all here and of course turkeys playing hardball. Same time so again. We'll see how this goes. What balls out here but Can you imagine trying to bring a new phone to market not having in an operating system port. Because you're countries basically said hey we don't think you're being fair So be careful what you wish for. JBL says his polar polar JBL says it solar powered ahead bones deliver on limited listening. It's crown funding. Hanging effort called the reflect eternal and so GB L. is not betting their own business on this betting. Your money on this in this crowdfunding operation to try to be able to again fraud fund these phones and of course I would even admit that wireless headphones are pain. 'cause we're always charging urging them and But they WANNA have these little bit of solar panels on them so the charge and what are they going to price them at the calm the JBL reflect eternal self charging whereas headphones. Oh and by the way it still will have a headphone Jack in it and it will era power Ainhoa a charging Jack and ninety nine dollars. This is the drug funding entry level cadillacs 2021 escalade will boost his thirty eight inch curved Oh led screen now. Oh that's a bigger screen than a lot of us have on our desk pretty insane. A thirty eight inch curved led screen and. I bet that baby's GONNA be beautiful video of it. This video cannot be served sap to go to twitter. Look at it but Anyway if you love escalade to get a big monitoring your car soon visa is warning all drivers. They go to the gas station to put your credit card in if you don't have a chip reader so a lot of gas stations in United States have chip readers. Now you put your card in it holds it reads. The chip proves it. You don't just do the sticking poll anymore. And they're warning about a malware exploited exploited gas stations across the nation and So these are really affecting the old style card readers and Basically visas told all gas stations. You need to be done and flipped a card readers by October twenty. Twenty if you're not you're going to be liable for for fraud. So they're just saying basically observed that the payment system sports a chip and pin compatible cards safety us. And if you notice a merchant it using outdated payment system you must encourage them to upgrade. I wonder if this just bees are being visa and saying hey the upgraded chip readers putting out a little bit of misinformation. They don't talk about the exact type of attack that's happening but again they're warning about a malware exploit what we've known that there's there's been issues at gas stations for years where people have put faults readers on gas station pumps is nothing new there so not surprised but it they didn't give me some specific specifics Mercedes delayed the US launch of its all aw electric SUV until two thousand twenty one and they say they're going to focus on the growing demand in Europe. I here's the problem that we're seeing with these electric cars. Just not enough charging stations. Lots of people are getting cars but not enough commercial charging station. Instagram is now hiding faults. Content behind warnings except for politicians. So is your name is giving politicians save the same free reign to spread information as it is parent company facebook and expanding its limited back checking test in the United States. You may now work with forty five third party organizations -tations to assess the truthfulness of video continents website on its APP. You know. I guess that's the key right. You WanNA put up a bunch of fake stuff. Just become a politician Titian. That's what she do. Former NASA engineer thought support pirates again with glitter bomb two point Oh and So gays remember the glitter bomb from last year. Well they remain read. Rework the The the little trick packages and I had a little fun with it. There's a nice eighteen minute video and of glitter bombs of people that still packages from Portuguese so They did a pretty good fake out. Job This year and Freak some people out of course Google map speaking of EV charging places Google maps canal list the right Ev charging station for your car.

The approved a mapping out during the Hong Kong protests leading to criticism that it was pandering to Beijing camping group some of us us called on apple disclose certain human rights policies in a resolution filed on September nine the US Security Exchange Commission reject APP. Apple's appealed to block the resolution this months so if shareholder votes in favour of the motion apple may have to explain his future responses on demands from government set limit free speech apple will also have to disclose how arms policies on those specific issues so the shareholders basically voting on emotion. That will mean that. If it is approved apple has to have policies around free expression and that those will be available to shareholders. The company will need to report these. These policies and the decision said is made the falls under them. So we'll see how we'll see if the stockholders do in a shareholders are worried about the bottom line. They're not so worried about these types of social issues. Some my prediction is that apple. Shareholders will vote this down. That's my prediction that the shareholders are going to not require apple to do this because what it could do is these policies could force apple to change the business and change range.

You're about to hear if you're a leave it to the last minute minute holidays shopper counting on your package delivery company of choice to get something quickly from point a to stocking be ones for you and you can't say you weren't warned because this here thanks to elite Thanksgiving. There's less time than usual to get everything done. Which means the heat is on at Fedex? UPS and the post office marketplace's Nova. Sappho has come back with me. Two days of Christmas past twenty thirteen to be exact when Thanksgiving came late in November and shippers got overwhelmed by bad weather and Qalat of last minute Christmas packages the result was a public relations debacle ups Fedex which also saw some delays blamed the delivery delays delays on. What they call a perfect storm angry? Customers took to social media to complain the grinch that stole Christmas War Brown the color of ups how she since then ups has opened six new automated superhubs. Fedex has added new handling equipment and the US Postal Service has invested in scanners. Now they'll face a test again with Thanksgiving having fallen late in November leaving six fewer shopping days before Christmas and that means shoppers and shippers. I have to move fast consumers. Want it there on time. They do All throughout the year but more importantly right now Shlomo rackliff owns a ups store franchise ties in Burbank California. He's had a sign on his counter since mid-november letting customers know about Christmas shipping deadlines generally the majority of the public public waits till the last minute now with one last week we're planning and expecting a bigger rush than normal. UPS has also sent yearly emails and social media media messages about shipping deadlines US Postal Service spokesperson. Kim From says the Post Office is getting out the word to a direct mail campaign into more than one hundred million homes. It should have been received before Thanksgiving or by Thanksgiving. USPS does that every year but this year shortened holiday season comes as we're collectively typically shopping online about twice as much as we did in that fateful Christmas season of two thousand thirteen. A lot of the expectations of consumers is regarding speed of shipping have been driven by Amazon. New York. Universities are on Sunday. Rodgen studies how technologies transform business. He says shippers are feeling the pressure to deliver quickly because retailers are feeling it and for a smaller retailer keeping up with that kind of expectation is incredibly incredibly hard.

Almost a billion dollars in revenue <music> fedex is business is shipping boxes and almost no single company generates more boxes to ship than amazon today on on the show. Why would fedex cut ties with a company that would seem to be. It's perfect customer. Welcome to the journal <unk> our show about money business power. I'm ryan kanoute. Send an i'm kate linebaugh. It's monday august twelfth. The relationship between fedex in amazon started to deteriorate after one dramatic christmas. Let's let's go back to december twenty thirteen. It's christmas and it's a year were ecommerce is growing taking share for malls. It's on fire palsy. Albro covers the shipping industry for the wall street journal. We're getting down to the last few days before christmas. Everybody's sitting at home and they are buying presents presents for their kids. Their relatives and they're expecting it to arrive before christmas but what's happening behind. The scenes is u._p._s. Fedex are getting crushed. There are just millions of packages that are being dropped into their network. Not only from from amazon dick's sporting goods macy's kohl's l.l bean. I mean just any retallack you can think of the network was being completely overwhelmed and millions of people a little bit get their packages before christmas. Christmas was ruined for a lot of people christmas. Cheer turned into christmas jeers today after a lot of disappointed online shoppers were without out there gifts on christmas morning. I waited around for hours and hours for it to show up and it never did. It's terribly disappointing because we ordered these things on december first. I was really excited. I couldn't wait to see your face and it didn't happen so i was disappointed and the carriers had to issue refunds john's and sort of amazon amazon akitas well but amazon did something about it. They really got serious about wondering thing. You know what do we have to do to make sure it doesn't happen down the road and they decided that they were going to look into building their own shipping network that strikes me as an extraordinarily ambitious. Che's response to something that all of retail had to deal with but here's amazon deciding. We're gonna actually build our own logistics company right but amazon is known for big ambitious. Che's ideas and really disrupting industries and they certainly have the capital to pursue this sort of bold idea. I don't think it would be hyperbole to say that they're one of the most i feared companies. Incorp america dina mattioli covers amazon for the wall street. Journal amazon's not content to partner with other companies when they think that they could do these things better themselves. They're studying different companies and industries that they can get involved in and if there's an ability to bring efficiencies or to execute under better level they probably will amazon's done a good job at looking inwardly and saying well if we need this type of service. Maybe our customers need it to amazon has used this playbook many times. When it sees an opportunity in another industry it's studies that industry carefully and then pounces so a prime example example of that is cloud computing amazon started growing beyond book selling and they started adding lots of other categories and they needed data and computer pewter bandwidth to help serve those customers so they created cloud computing and then at some point. They said you know what if we need this to run back operations. Any number of companies in the world world probably need it to and that's now the cash cow of the business. I think a lot of people still describe. Amazon is one of the world's biggest retailers but there's so much more the not these days. They are a massive hollywood studio. They're one of the biggest advertising companies in the world. They make their own electronics. They make kindle and alexa which are wildly popular. They're getting into healthcare. They're getting into health insurance and with whole foods and their amazon goes stores. They're also getting into grocery so there's really you know industry that they don't have their tentacles in some fashion in how do companies react when they start to pick up. The scent amazon might be looking into their neighborhood with panic. I think i know this from my prior job covering mergers and acquisitions that you'd be hard pressed to find a single boardroom in america where amazon's not regularly brought up up and people are trying to make themselves amazon proof but when amazon decided to get its tentacles into the shipping business. Fedex's ceo didn't react with panic antic at all here. He is in a fox business interview. Amazon is now a big customer for you time. They're trying to get their own trucks. Their customers twelve competitor the fact that amazon had lots of trucks and things like that is smart from them. Not a threat to us sex would always face the question of what are you gonna do about amazon as a competitor amazon's growing. It's living in our county feel about that. Is that a risk for guys and fedex stance in the words of their c._e._o. And founder fred smith was that amazon being a competitor was quote fantastical. He didn't believe that amazon would build out a network network to rival its own and there was a reason fedex was doubtful. When it comes to logistics. You can't just bill the network to deliver packages any given week. You have to weigh over build your capacity. There's a phrase this isn't logistics industry that you build a church for easter and what that means is that every sunday your church. It may not be packed but on easter. It'll be packed and it'll be overflowed. Amazon needed to build its church. They needed to have its church. That can handle there overflow. Their big peaks in volume around christmas around prime day. Despite this enormous barrier to entry amazon got to work doc building. It's church anyway in just a few years. It's built up a massive logistics apparatus including hundreds of warehouses tens of thousands of trucks and dozens of airplanes over the last few years you start seeing amazon trucks on the road more often so in two thousand fifteen amazon started prime now which is basically one hour delivery and some metro markets later on that year. They started leasing airplanes. They also started looking for people who on small businesses though basically be amazon's delivery partners. I you could start your own business. Hire workers renison vans and you basically have replicated the model that fedex uses in his ground business two years ago twenty. Two percent of packages were delivered by themselves today. Forty five percent of packages are delivered by amazon so almost half of amazon's packages these are delivered by amazon itself and if doubled that in just two years yeah amazon now has around fifty cargo planes now that's still pales in comparison to fedex is around seven hundred planes but for only a few years of work for amazon. It's not bad what u._p._s. has built out over a century korea and fedex has honed over forty years amazon have done no matter of years and all of this would have been fine for fedex. Maybe if amazon was building the network to ship only its own packages but last year amazon declared that shipping other people's packages would be a new line of business third party's people and businesses who sell on amazon can now ship through amazon too and that cuts directly into fedex is business say you're a a sneaker retailer and you're selling shoes on amazon the way an ebay seller might sell on ebay you would sell the shoes an amazon truck would come pick it up from you and they would put in their network the way they would amazon packages and get it to the end user so fedex was just kind of you know what the heck were worshipping your packages. It is but you're also building this business to compete with fedex any business who wakes up one day and sees a customer turning into competitor as the the right to reevaluate their relationship so last week fedex re evaluated and decided to cut ties with amazon and they could afford award to do that. The nine hundred million dollars amazon pays fedex to deliver packages. It's actually only about one percent of fedex is total revenue and there were risks to staying with amazon if fedex were to stay with amazon so amazon becomes not one percent of its revenue but five percent or ten percent then it's really hard to split ways and that's the situation one fedex is biggest competitors finds itself in right now u._p._s. in a really different different position with amazon amount of revenue that u._p._s. Guests from amazon is much closer to ten percent than than fedex so certainly couldn't cut ties with the retailer like fedex. Did the amazon grew so big that they could bring a lot of those packages into its own network ups be left with a huge revenue whole you can't really lose that to give give a customer and not feel immediate pain. That was one reason that fedex proactively cut ties with amazon even though it was still getting business shipping amazon packages fedex figured if amazon really has these ambitious to grow their delivery business. They're gonna leave us no matter what so. Why should we be helping them in these last few years of then giving us. This revenue is basically saying. You're not gonna fire me. I quit we'll figure out under our own terms rather than having our hands before when amazon says we don't need you anymore. It is a risk. I mean it's like the biggest ground beef supplier in the world and not at selling hamburgers to mcdonald's so obviously fedex is taking a risk by cutting ties with amazon but it's a risk that fedex thinks could pay off big time fedex is planned to go up against amazon and make itself a lot of money in the process.

"He's judged at junior achievement competitions. And then connected to save kids. And like, I said the golf tournament appearance and other things he's just he's very connected to our leadership into our brand the importance of branding is something Hamlin has learned about perhaps the most with FedEx is the simplest things, you think that it's, you know, who cares shouldn't matter. Right. We get calls all the time that hey, you gotta run that bias in. It's like, oh, well, that's just something simple. Like, I wouldn't even think twice about. But the brand to them is so serious in the sense of that day, protect that that label in that brain that means a lot to them and the integrity of that brand that they're gonna protect it at all cost. Just the simplest thing of the stitching on a hat. You wouldn't believe how many proofs we go through on hats that just will have a threat or to not right? And it's gotta go back this year. I get a new suit, and I'm so happy. I'm so happy I've had to wear the same suit that actually has been discontinued for many many years. But when we found out they're going to discontinue this material we bought it all up. Because we knew that. Hey, we have to we had to get this because the FedEx logo looked right. The color was right on that particular type of cloth. We finally found a new suit manufacturer that got the die. Right. Got the the coloring. Right. Because that's how important it is that when federal logo is shown it's got to be on the right backdrop with the right? Everything has got to be perfect. The perfect ending for Hamlin who will turn thirty nine in November staying with FedEx for the entirety of his career, so fourteen seasons. How many more do you think you can be a FedEx driver? Yeah. I'd I'd like to do one more contract beyond beyond. What I have what I have is long-term. We're not even really in the middle of that yet. So I would like to be here. I'd like to I mean, it's so rare we thought Jimmy would finish with lows. Right. And and I think that there's something to be said about that to have someone that is with you from the start to the finish. Obviously tell about dollars and cents right? And whether you can make. Things work. But obviously, I'm with the company I believe in the hope hopefully believes in me through the course of my career. And I like to go of at least, you know, forty three ish you've been to Memphis. Over the years. You know, you've had in FedEx on your car for nearly fifteen years in met with team members all over the country. What what is the support of this company specifically with nearly half a million employees around the world that you represent everyday? Well, I'll tell you a lot to me every time I come to Memphis. It's it's special. But you know, every time I come it always see a handful of people with the Senate racing hat or something now autograph from being here before. So it means a lot to have everyone here's support because ultimately out there all the track on Sunday. We're out there, representing you. And in what you do for FedEx. And so that's something that we don't take lightly, and we we definitely hold that FedEx purple promised Brown..

We're expecting earnings, and they are in and what happened well their fourth quarter earnings topped estimates. However, it's the revenue that missed it was on weaker-than-expected bond trading. This is called fixed income and revenue fell. Twenty one percent to the lowest in seven years after the market's wild markets just kept a log clients on the sidelines combined revenue from stock and bond underwriting, also dropped more than expected and the company missed a full year profitability target by a wider margin than it warned of five weeks ago.

Now, you're next washing machine your sofa. It could be a FedEx tractor pulls up. They're calling the service FedEx freight top FedEx freight to direct, and they will deliver these things to your home as well as assemble them. They hadn't been doing this before it's a nine billion dollar market. A lot of the the regular delivery trucks, even the retailers had done this. They said they didn't do it before this because large items didn't fit well in their package sorting operations. So they might pick something up at a furniture store five miles from my house. Bring it to a house and carry it in as opposed to that. Furniture store having its own delivery people. Right. Exactly. So it could be that the furniture store, then finally says we'll just get a deal contract with FedEx, we don't have to hire these people. We don't have to keep these people on staff. Yeah. So that same guy goes and works for FedEx, he could possibly he could let's could get the same benefits you get better. Who knows the nine billion dollar market? That's a lot.
