How To Create a Stronger Mindset to Tackle Goals

"I definitely get into mindset itself and talking about stoicism the type of resilient thinking where the obstacle is the way instead of wishing for life without obstacles instead of wishing for short cut around the obstacles cherishing obstacle in knowing that is how we find our strength. That is how we get stronger. That's how we get better just like going to the gym. This is the jim for your brain. It's called alice. Static load in the body and the more resilient we are. The bigger are stress bucket. Were alice static. Load can be the more stress we can handle and the more stress we can handle mentally the more stress we can handle physically like pathogens and viruses and things like that and vice versa when we get better at physical stress doing cold plunges and hot saunas and doing fasting we get better at dealing with mental stress. So your body sees both The same those are alice static. Load another thing. That i would say there's really important is. If you're big. Goals are overwhelming. Start making small goals start raking them down into much simpler things start tracking things. Journaling things using an app. If you want using google key or evernote or something like that in just tracking things and tracking your small wins with your small goals. That's really important at the big old just seemed too big and break it down. Start making it simple. If your goal is for example to lose fifty. Which i don't think is a good good goal. I think a good goal is to fit into a certain dress or you know. Feel great about your body. Or whatever like i think a shift like. That's more important than getting caught up in a number but to i think breaking it down into smaller things you know like what's the dress size you want to get into for you know x weeks like those kinds of things like and or lifting a certain amount of weight by x. weeks You know being able to walk two miles by x. Weeks you start getting like your goals broken down to where instead of like one massive goal you have twenty smaller. Owl's and then.

Parodied on seinfeld. Which i think is kind of a litmus test for cultural relevance and the seinfeld version is that kramer is going to a movie theater and he's trying to smuggle in a cafe lot hey and he gospels it. Somehow it burns his leg and he's like i'm going to sue the coffee company because the coffee was too hot and like what a ridiculous thing to sue anyone for making hot coffee hot. It's supposed to be hot. Her and all of this is based on a case. Where there is this. Elderly woman named florence. Liebeck it's actually stella liebeck. Stella why do i think her name's florence. Is there a florence liebeck. I think you're thinking of florence in the coffee machine alright. Stella that's great. What a great name. Who went to mcdonald's drive-thru and she ordered a hot coffee and it spilled somehow and she got burns from the coffee and she sued mcdonalds and the way the story went was mcdonald's had given her like thirty trillion dollars. And there was this sense of lake will what next like. Why doesn't everyone sue every large corporation for a lot of money for a product behaving in a predictable way. Yeah i mean the term that you heard a lot at the time was jackpot justice. Was this idea that people are doing these completely normal things like we've all spilled coffee on ourselves and blowing them up into these like. Oh my life was never the same. After i spilled up. You know luke warm cup of coffee on myself. It's the juxtaposition between this completely. Every day normal thing that happens to everybody and the massive settlement that this woman got by suing mcdonalds and then also i feel like maybe this isn't true but my understanding was that it was because of this like whenever you get a beverage from anywhere still today.

Does that ever like enter into your consideration. It's a consideration. You should take about anything produced by any company. That's run for profit. Which is everything you know Basically every need in american society need is tempered by the knowledge that there are people out there who are paid very large salaries to sell it to you. This is the case for everything. We'd everything we eat every time you run down main street or in my case i guess You know the boulevards in los angeles You're seeing the protracted efforts of a billion dollar industry to make sure you want things they're selling could that be the case for covert undeniably.

I think that deep down you have this kind of you know urged that i'm already there were. Maybe they want this thing to go on for another decade to go make another hundred billion dollars. And maybe the cheap drug hydrochloric winter ivermectin might work better than they might think. I don't have that urge. Certain other studies would disagree with you earlier. We could change the topic. I just i just think it's so. I'll know that was a healthy discord. Can i meet in the middle on that one on that very last one. I do not trust the pharmaceutical industries.

Heather Mac Donald: There Is No Epidemic of Fatal Police Shootings Against Unarmed Black Americans

"In the middle of all the challenges with covert in afghanistan and we still have police under attack. I had a chance to catch up with the great heather mcdonald. Heather mcdonald is the author of the war on cops great political voice great commentator on law enforcement. Here's what we talked about. Recently heather mcdonald studies data. And i wanna talk about the data that refused the narrative that blacks unarmed black. Americans are in peril of being gunned. Down by a by america's police officers every day. I have callers who've told me that i had listeners. Who say what. What does the data say about that narrative. It's preposterous narratives. That percentage of blacks allegedly unarmed blacks. Who were killed by. The cops is a minute fraction. it's about point one. two point. Two percent of all blacks killed of homicide each year last year and and i say allegedly unarmed because this data comes from the washington post database of fatal police killings. The washington post defines unarmed. As broadly as possible to try and get as many people into that category as possible. So if you're trying to grab an officer's gun you're unarmed. If you're if you're fleeing in a stolen car with a loaded semi audit the seat next to you. You're armed Last year there were eighteen on allegedly unarmed blacks kills and again a lot of these people were still posing threat to the officer eighteen. We don't know yet. The final death toll from twenty twenty. Which was the largest one year increase in homicide in recorded history. Thanks to officers backing off. Thanks to this phony narrative about policing those eighteen allegedly unarmed black victims of police killings represent likely about one percent of what we're we're likely to see about ten thousand bucks killed last year more than all whites and hispanics

Ted Lasso: Lessons on Leadership From a Fictional Character

"I for anyone who has the unfortunate fate of not having watched head lasso yet. What are you even doing people. How would you describe the character of ted lasso. So i think ted so is it shouldn't be a serious character right. This is a college football coach from kansas. Who is going over to coach. Manage in the english premier league. The whole setup feels absurd. Which i think is why the character seems to work so well because this guy is a. He's folksy. he has these things he will say. I mean come on. Sam was more open than the jar peanut butter on my kitchen counter. That's right y'all don't know. I like to keep the peanut butter open. That way whenever i walk back and just stick my finger and yet he has this inner goodness that i think when when he comes across people that they seem to react to you coaching football make. You are a legend for doing something. So i mean it's meno murdy well you know. I've heard that tune before. But here i am still dancing. Ted last. So is the quintessential mid western kindness guy. You know a guy who wants to do well in the world treat other people the right way and just kind of live life with optimism and kindness and all those like grape characteristics that we'd all like to have. Yeah i think it really is his relentless optimism. That wins you over in the show. Is there a particular scene in the series that you think really captures that element of his personality. You know i was thinking about this. In the first episode. He's gone over to england. He's been introduced to the media. He talks to the team. And everybody's obviously it's not going well and then him and coach beard kind of redecorate the office. They put up the john wooden pyramid of success. They put up. All these american touchstones like muhammad ali poster in the miracle on ice poster all in the office. And then roy kent the kind of the you know. The quintessential english footballer. He comes in the office and he calls him ronald mcdonald and i think he uses an expletive and then he leaves the office and ten lasso goes he thinks may now wait. We win them over if he thinks he's mad. Now wait until we win them over.

But the problem is it's only three people working for staff so you you're so the other six people that aren't working are the ones that were worried about. And hopefully if you bring in like a really nice tip like if you know that guy with the thousand dollar tip that restaurant did a really nice job of giving all the staff was even Part of that money. All right i want. I want to ask this question to. Can somebody explain to me how it is in. May because of all of our people the staffer working from home like you know the Salespeople and promotions people. the mcdonald's next to the radio station closed down. How does a mcdonald's close in this atmosphere that we're in right now when everybody's eating fast food drive by mcdonalds and all i see is lines. That are out the door. are they. Closed down for good or the remodeling. The place where they took down all the signs and everything really. I thought it was just because of the construction in the road right there. No signs all the way around on the side on the building. One of our. Dj's win in their for lunch on wednesday and they told them we're going out of business so i guess that location to franchisee. Just i don't get it because they're always busy. Always maybe they had issues with staffing right now or something. They're they're just trying to thin out. The i feel like we need to call him and our boss paul because he went there every single day not even listed no. I think paul's leaves. And why it closed down paulie there so much pre pandemic now. That paul's work from home a lot. The place had to close down. Is he aware though that he's not gonna be able to walk next door and get his his stuff. I don't know and you know what's funny. I did my annual. I did my annual gift to him. My annual gift to him. As i get him a a A a large mcdonald's gift card and then see how fast paul can actually finished an email. Say no good. Yeah but i got him. I got him a gift because great. Now we all gotta get well. I did it. Because he's the guy that got us. A contract has been fought his his not the phones. He's not even answering this. Got you really hold on. She's waving etched facetime him. Paul corvino who by the way. He should on our allies.

The worst day this might be worse than than the how the the lockdowns have have affected you paul corvino. Okay the mcdonald's next to the radio station closed its doors and closed down. We're going to have to move. I think that that's that's the omen by the way we've been talking about that. Haven't we about moving i think. Now it's official. I think it is time to move because mcdonald's is no longer there. We're going to have to actually make a chart of all the staff at the building who's going to have to take turns bringing in mcdonalds from their neighborhood to paul everyday so like i'll take mondays and wednesdays and we all like take shifts to see who can help keep his habit alive and it's difficult. I only pass about eleven or twelve on the way working morning. I know but this one was right outside to walk. I get that someday. For for ju it was right outside your window and it got to a point where you went there so often during the day that your wonderful assistant julie would have to.

"You know what one thing that you know. I sit there. And i think to myself as a very brave person which. I'm not very brave. That i did yesterday. That might be the dumbest thing ever a friend of mine said. Hey i want to get together with you before the holidays and i said you know what. Don't worry everything's okay. And then they're like no no no really. I really wanna do it. I think it's because i'm going to have that surgery after the first of the year and stuff so they wanted to make sure that we were able to see each other so we decided that we were going to go have lunch together. Now you say we're can you go have lunch because you were here in in michigan in our restaurants aren't open like they. Are you know for our folks in toledo. His bright idea was to sit outside on a patio. When it was thirty. Five degrees in there was snow outside. Was it a heated patio or no off was it was literally the patio outside of a smash burger and we're sitting there on metal of like outdoor chairs. Just clean snow off of so that we could sit there and eat together. And i realized how horrible this is right now for for restaurant people. Because i don't even think heated lamps would have made it more comfortable. And i don't get the whole you know. People that are the restaurants that are are still trying to stay open. Patio is and the people that will sit there. Like you are brave. Because be done if they got the heat heaters in the right spot in the heat lamps overhead considering making a reservatn romero and Jeff are sales guy. Was there just this weekend. He said it was too hot and he says cold as it was because it was too hot because they'd so many overhead and then the lamp and the portable heaters needs. It was great and it made me realize because i don't want to sit in winter. Jackets need a fancy meal. But i sat wednesday. I went to the got out therapy. And i saw when i was going. I saw the igloos at big laura in and so i said you know what i'd like. Check one hundred. I haven't had a beer in since they closed four weeks ago so called up my photographer buddy said hey when i get out of my appointment you wanna meet up a big lords. I went on. Their website is only five bucks to reserve their little league. Lose out on the patio and it was warm. It was nice now that was but on show a little sunnier. But but i'm seeing people are doing this like we did it in outside of a smash burger. Which wasn't like there wasn't a official. Yeah i'm seeing people that are eating outside at restaurants at the mall. What's the state place in the capital grill at the somerset. People are literally sitting there. And i watched this couple of sitting there out outside. This was last week when the temperature wasn't as cold as it is. Now i mean we were still mid forties or so last week and they had a heater right next to him and these people looked i mean. They looked miserable out there freezing their asses off tonight. My friend andrea de was her birthday. A couple of days ago. So she's like. I really want to celebrate with you so i threw out a bunch of places we haven't picked one. Yep all outdoor igloo or not an outdoor with both of the places. I recommended are outdoor and they have like the fire pits that you can sit around and the heater. So i feel like we'll be okay We're not going to zero temperature yet. That we know is coming in january but for me. It's like. I'm i want to support these restaurants so badly and i'm so sick of getting takeout in my own living room so like how can we out somewhere and and safely you know still eat a meal but still supports the thing.

I feel so bad for For you for what's been going on. Because and i hope that people are tipping on takeout or even if they're sitting outside i hope that they're tipping twice as much. Oh my gosh lin- same doubled the bill. I gave her the same as our meal our beers in pizza. Because there's only three glues just server is hustling up and down back and forth but she can only do three tables over ninety minutes so she's not making that much money.

"And I think about it. In terms of the recent, George Floyd protests I about it in terms of the Rodney King uprisings that there are these moments where worlds are colliding at this place that everyone has been to more or less, but it means different things in different communities because of race. Is Black lives matter a moment for McDonald's? What are they doing? Well I, think that McDonald's is doing something that they've done for a really long time they've taken. The temperature of the moment and shape shifted in response, so they are seizing upon a corporate shift towards supporting black lives matter, but one of the things that I think a lot of these companies don't understand, is that when you declare that black lives matter you shift the terrain of the debate now people are GonNa say well prove it.

And McDonald says it regularly meets and talks openly with members of the Black McDonald's operators association. The idea of being a family is still very very central at McDonald's in so many things that you read internal documents.

"In McDonald's history. McDonald's executive sat across the table from the members of operation. Black Unity Near. Stoke stood by to facilitate. Facilitate people were armed. People brought guns to this meeting in case got to explosives, but this point Cleveland's white franchise owners wanted out their businesses were being crushed by the boycott, and they were done with being pulled into contentious civil rights disputes for McDonald's. However, it wasn't so easy. The company knew how it would look to give in to threats and intimidation and someone like a hill in particular, plus he was making demands that could set a precedent for McDonald's to. To have a role in local communities that it just didn't one operation black unity demands. We'd get to pick the FRANCHISEES. We get a fee for our I. Guess Search Firm Capacities. We get a pool. We get a card. We get money invested in a community trust for us a McDonald's. No, no, no on every point there stokes was caught in the middle, his white Democratic primary opponent was using the protest as a scare tactic asking what local business would be. Be Next to fall victim to the threats of black activism, if stokes wanted to live up to his promise of unity and get reelected. He had to get this settled. Meanwhile, members of Operation Black Unity turned on Hill, accusing him of extortion he'll lost control of the movement he had started now. All of this posturing and back, and forth is happening in the press as well as the national newspapers pick up the strange story of McDonald's boycott and Carl Stokes McDonald's. McDonald's was keeping an option warm. This entire time turns out behind the scenes. McDonald's and mayor stokes had been in talks with another community group one that would take over the restaurants that white franchise owners were giving up and that this group would be responsible for any community development projects like swimming pools parks that meant McDonald's was off the hook. Oh and it never have to negotiate with David Hill ever again. The day before mayor stokes primary election. He arranged in. In. Agreement with McDonald's and operation black unity to end the boycott stokes was reelected, and while hill did not get control of the restaurants. They were being run by members of the black community. I guess the question is. How do we measure success? In this situation? The boycott did expose black economic power in Cleveland in a time where African Americans were for the majority living in poverty. It did show that there was a difference having a black mayor, even though it. It did not solve all the problems. The Cleveland Boycott was covered in papers across the country, and the eventual agreement demonstrated to activate that local black communities could have a voice in negotiating with an international corporation about how it operates in their neighborhoods. Even for that brief moment. They really did impact. McDonald's and so I think the takeaway from those experiences were then deployed in different cities as they were challenging. What did it mean for McDonald's to be such a presence? In the years after Cleveland more and more black entrepreneurs around the country took over existing McDonald's and open new ones for fifty years. They've tested. If black capitalism can improve the lives of black, Americans in their communities wasn't enough. That's when we come back. We're back. In nineteen, sixty nine Cleveland's black entrepreneurs got what they wanted. Ownership of local McDonald's franchises and marked a change in how the company would operate in black communities for years to come. Black capitalist hoped that McDonald's restaurants could help franchisees in several ways i. they'd let them become business owners next with the support of McDonald's businesses would become profitable, and then with that money, black franchisees could invest in their communities and thereby help other black people. It hasn't been that simple from your reporting and talking to people. How are black franchisees feeling about McDonald's corporate? I spoke with a lot of former franchisees. Who? Especially have very mixed and more negative feelings where they feel like they've been forced out. Basically that McDonald's put them in a situation where they could not win, they could not continue to save the company. K Taylor is a senior correspondent covering restaurants and retail for business insider. At the end of last year, she reported that many black franchisees were making significantly less than their white counterparts. She also found that in the last few years, the number of black-owned McDonald's has been falling out of the seventeen hundred people who own McDonald's restaurants fewer than two, hundred or black. That's down from over three hundred in two thousand seven people have been aware of. Of these issues for decades, and from Dr it kind of goes, through ebbs and flows where they feel that McDonald's is listening to them making some changes and then periods where they feel like McDonald's is ignoring the concerns. This goes all the way back to the nineteen seventies and in response, lack franchisees created a group to advocate on their behalf. The National Black McDonald's operators association over the years. Some of them have accused McDonald's of discrimination. More recently black franchisees have told Kate that they've faced obstacles on several fronts. I mean restaurants were not as financially accessible as they'd hoped for more than a million dollars to just open one location, so you have to be a millionaire several times over basically you are going to thrive in the McDonald's system at this point. Add to that in recent years. McDonald's corporate has demanded expensive tech upgrades and move towards a model where fewer franchisees own more restaurants. That's made it even harder for black. Americans to buy into the McDonald's system. Because African Americans in this country are less likely to have the generational wealth. They just aren't in the same position to. Invest millions of dollars as frequently as some white Franchisees have been in two thousand seventeen, the Federal Reserve released a report showing that on average black families net worth is fifteen percents that families. So getting a franchise has become more challenging, and that brings us to the second point that these restaurants would make black business owners money. Kate found that it's been difficult for them to make a prophet. Right McDonald's several told her that the company LTD which ones they're allowed to run and where they could open new restaurants. If you're in an area that is lower income, it can cost a lot more for security cost. So. That's something where you're paying more for security. You're paying more for insurance because of concerns related to that, and that just cuts into the bottom line. Current and former black franchisees told Kate Dave attempted to run restaurants in more affluent areas. One told her that working a corporate liaison he tried to help. A fellow Black Franchisee opened another store nearby. McDonald's basically told both franchisees that their new stories available. It just wasn't a possibility at that point. And then literally the same week McDonald's announced that there was going to be a white franchisee opening a store on the same street that the black Franchisee e had been trying to open the location on. CATES said that McDonald's declined to comment on this specific example being excluded from owning restaurants in higher income neighborhoods has financially hurt black franchisees to sum it up in the most basic way, black franchisees we're making about sixty eight thousand dollars less per store a month than the overall total or average franchisees overall that gap is more than double from what it was and twenty twelve win. Black Franchisees have spoken out about their concerns. Some told Kate. They've noticed strange corporate behavior like McDonald's employees showing up for unplanned inspections late on a Friday night once even Christmas Eve or getting written up for minor infractions like a torn piece of wallpaper and that could. Could lead to franchisees being penalized financially, or it could lead to them getting their stories takeaway mixed in with all of this fears that if black franchise owners are struggling financially, maybe even selling their restaurants, they won't invest in their local communities. Remember.

Eastern lightning believed the second coming of Christ was manifested in the form of a Chinese woman named Yongsheng been and conveniently their female. Jesus was married to the cult leader. John Elway Shun both Joanne. Yang fled to the United States in two thousand to avoid prison but the cult itself was still thriving in China with millions of followers across the country. Since two thousand eastern lightning had been connected to a number of crimes and suspicious activity most recently two years before in two thousand twelve members staged massive demonstrations across the country to spread false predictions of the end of the world years before that the group was linked to a series of violent incidents arson battery kidnapping and extortion. But the savage unprovoked killing of a stranger seemed unheard of even for eastern lightning. China was outraged by whoosh `alliance murder soon shaky cell phone recordings of the attack taken by other McDonald's patrons circulated across the Internet though the violence itself isn't visible the sound of Wu's screams and the image of her attackers dipping. In and out of frame as they delivered each blow was disturbing and the people of China were determined to punish those responsible. Not long after patriarch. John Lee Dong who dealt the killing blows and his eldest daughter. Jong Fawn who started the attack were interviewed on national television. When asked why he murdered Wu John Lee. Dong simply replied. I beat her with all my might and stamped on her. To she was a demon. We had to destroy her. John Fong was equally callous as they stood before judges at their subsequent trial. She often smiled. Father and daughter were each sentenced to death and executed. They maintain their belief that the killing was righteous to the end John. Lee Don claimed we are not afraid of the law. We have faith in God but while the Jong sacrifice their lives to carry out violence they believed was for the sake of their Jesus. They'd ultimately persecute their fellow believers even further the McDonalds murder pulled. The Church of Almighty God back under media scrutiny and as a result government crackdowns intensified after. Wu's murder Chinese authorities arrested more than one thousand members of eastern lightning and considering China's notoriously aggressive approach to religious dissidents. Their punishment was most likely brutal. After the fact even eastern lightning denied the event entirely refusing to associate self with the Jong's crimes in an official statement about the McDonalds murder. They said this case itself is full of lies and layered with dubious facts. The lies used to frame and entrapped. The Church of Almighty God are collapsing in on themselves today. Eastern lightning remains on a list of banned religious groups in China and according to its website is reportedly still amassing millions of followers but though the group has managed to evade the spotlight for years now it's Army of radical believers may always be on the precipice of committing their next senseless act of violence..

"We've got McDonald's we've got starbucks. We have a longtime CEO emphasis on longtime reportedly leaving the company that he he founded and we will get to all of those but we have to start with apple. Because Apple's first quarter which is the holiday quarter was everything you would want to be if you're an apple. Shareholder profits and revenue came in higher than expected iphone sales fifty-six billion dollars worth of IPHONE. Sales else yeah. This is the quintessential beat and raise kind of quarter which apple probably needed in terms the stock Devaluation was trading At all time highs in now is a new all-time high a little bit more so it fulfilled A very high expectations and the question. That you know probably will be bandied around will not spend too much time on this house is evaluation justified at this point. Yeah I mean. We'll we'll get to the stock in a second but the iphone sales rightfully so getting the headlined find the. What is the other products category? That's the official named apple gives it the other products Apple Watch Air Pods beats headphones. Ten billion dollars worth of sales. Yeah you can split up the various segments of apple and get a number of extremely large companies and I should just spin off the other products and you'd have a maybe not a maybe not a top top one hundred company in terms of market cap but certainly top two hundred certainly if you were a fortune five hundred s and p five hundred companies. How many could you get out of Apple? There that that must've work has been done a few times the pile of cash is one of them At at over two hundred billion right now is one of the more dominant companies In history is apple's pile of trades under the ticker P. L. C. S. But in terms of the actual business yeah they've got the the various moving parts wearables. I I guess and and home and That being the the fastest growing part today and and so- expectations for for that or are the highest of various things I think that the IPAD and Mac Sales were a little below expectations and there. It would have been a time where that would have been a big problem But today is not that time iphone is still the dominant part the business and and really got the job done Especially in China. So what about the stock well actually before we wrap up on the stock worth mentioning and this is something will return to a couple of times. Today Tim. Tim Cook did talk about China. And I think in most notably showed up in the guidance that they gave cue to the range of guidance was wider than and they normally give and that was tim cook in his team's nod towards the uncertainty in China and rightfully so yeah a bit of uncertainty. Both as is to what the purchasing patterns will be there especially over quarter in our relief. You're looking at apple over one quarter of timeframe you're probably missing a lot of story there but Possibly benefiting a little bit from move to do some of the manufacturing outside of China and really. Yeah this like many other companies is talking has to talk about what the China fact is going to be in his largely answering entering with the you know over the short term. We really don't know over the long term. Probably not much of a problem apple stock has more than doubled over the past year. As you said it's at an all time high as strong as this company is. This really doesn't seem like the data by shares if you don't own shares so going into the day it had moved up from Over the last six months from about seventeen times earnings of over the next twelve months to twenty four times earnings over the next twelve months The next twelve months earnings. Are you know. Always a little harder to Way Than than the actual trailing twelve months so it they're looking at good earnings in the next twelve months and things like China might be more of a headwind than than we know today And giving a much higher multiple on that positive future. The than was being done six months ago. So yeah the the risk here is that the the stock trades a little bit more like the stock usually trades and at some point in the future. It probably will shares of McDonald's up a little bit this. It's morning after a good fourth quarter report. McDonald's prophets were a little higher than expected global. Same store sales were nearly six percent Another company dealing with uncertainty in China in the future in the present. McDonald's closed a few hundred locations agency. But that's a tiny fraction of the number of locations. McDonald's has around the world. Yeah there is certainly a time when McDonald's was looked tat Negatively for not having done as much expansion into China Essay Yum brands which got bigger there faster and earlier than McDonald's. What's but Today that doesn't look like As much of a problem They have to sort of give the same answer today that Others are giving. We'd we don't not really no. We're taking care of our employees and and you know we don't know I I think that for McDonald's it's more temporary sorry a more where permanent hit to actual cash in the bank in that. If you don't eat Adam McDonalds you're not gonna eat more there later hopefully Whereas if you don't go out and buy your iphone today and you really want to you're gonNA buy it And you know in a month or two or something like that so I think that you you know the phones will eventually be built and manufactured and sold and McDonald's. This is a you know when when they're closed for business they don't they don't make that up later. So that said is another good quarter. I think they have highlighted that US sales are an traffic is what they're you're most focused on and I think that is going well the US guest count getting US guests counter. Positive is our number one priority priority new CEO said In in the call. And you know they're they're getting people in they are. Although I get why it's a priority already. You know even though we see the positive comps and they're able to boost that ticket for two thousand nine thousand nine they did. They did see a slight decline in traffic. You mentioned mentioned the new CEO. I think that's also worth highlighting. McDonald's I mean this is a quarter we're referring to him as the new CEO. St I'm sorry because his name is harder to pronounce than Smith I'm GonNa let you take a crack at it. You'll probably get it right but I'm not one hundred percent sure that I'll pronounce it perfectly because because it is not Smith which is I think the only name I can confidently get right all the time Chris. Kempinski is the new CEO. And I think you're right. Yeah I wrote it down phonetically phonetically but worth pointing out that you know they put up. These numbers is a huge company. And they put up these numbers when in the middle of the quarter Steve easterbrook who had been from a business standpoint a successful CEO and certainly from a stock standpoint and he left suddenly and immediately and Credit to Kempinski and his lieutenants for having no time to ramp up as CEO l.. And pulling off this type of horror and we'll see if he can handle it just doesn't smoothly for the next couple of quarters. Yeah they're so so and there is a tendency to give probably my estimation too much credit to CEO Both positively the and negatively at times And we'll see whether McDonalds a an operation owes as much to Easterbrook as would have been thought the case you know this time last year he certainly did a great job and they're in a good position Right now what they're looking at is more for competition from places on breakfast which McCall's got too early while giving more competition to the the chicken sandwich phenomenon That Popeye's got to earlier than The McDonald's so they're rolling out a couple of new chicken sandwiches and they are. I think expecting more competition from Wendy's in the breakfast category so you know a little bit the getting To some competitions You you know. Both sides could and Brad from a headline standpoint starbucks first quarter report KINDA similar to McDonald's in the sense that profits came came in higher than expected they put up global same store sales growth of five percent. That was I think about a half percent higher than was expected and yet shares of starbucks down a couple percentage points and Maybe they're being more aggressive with their guidance. Since with respect to China but if they are it's probably because they need to be. Yeah I think this is where three three now on getting to China being a big part of of today's stories and It is the their fastest growing and I think second largest market and is a major major major contributor to the top and bottom line again when they're shutting down stores which they're doing closing They are losing that money that cash flow and they're not gonNA make it back despite our recommendation that if you have missed some coffee go ahead and drink more the next day right and make sure you're you're you're getting all the health benefits you can. I mean this is this is not make light of the situation but One thing that lives in listening to the Conference Call I. I felt like a little bit. The I thought the did a very good job of just going on again and again again about the partners Being what other places call employees starbucks calls partners and that the starbucks is success was all attributable to the partners and the a special relationships. And all that and and I'm going through as you have and will again the college experience and my feeling going to every single college and hearing their Spiel is what makes that place. Special is the people right and left and I got a little bit of that vibe was through the conference call which you don't typically quickly get There are many. CEO's that Talk about their third grade employees but starbucks is definitely a leader in that category. Oy I agree with that but I referenced. This the other day that I think that how companies doing business in China provide guidance in their earnings report. This quarter is something that bears watching more closely than usual and as a starbucks shareholder. I was happy with the guidance that they gave the clarity. You mentioned Kevin Johnson CEO. I'll also mention Pat Greece Murphy's the CFO just being very clear with analysts analysts about China about closings. Basically saying to the point that Kaminsky made with McDonald's look we're going to update our guidance for for the current quarter and the fiscal year as soon as we possibly can and they're also dealing in an environment where the the state government of China may not necessarily be giving them all the information they want. That is a very real possibility..

"For ME GROWING UP IN CHICAGO. McDonald's was always around. We had birthday parties at McDonald's because her apartment was on on the small size I went to McDonald's after work in high school and after school. It was the go-to meal when my mom Um and I were driving far distances and we needed something to eat and so I have probably spent most of my life inside of McDonald's so the fact that I wrote a book about McDonald's. McDonald's is actually not that surprising. This is Marsha chatwin. She's a professor of history and African American studies at Georgetown University and her new book. The book about McDonalds. It's called franchise the Golden Arches in Black America and speaking of the Golden Arches. There's another new book out called drive through dreams. James A Journey through the heart of America's fast-food kingdom it's by journalist. Adam Chandler the Golden Arches are thought to be according to independent survey more recognizable as a symbol. Both then the Christian crosses around the world recognizable or no. I didn't imagine we'd ever focus an entire episode on McDonald's but here we are Dr Together.

That looks at food through the Lens of science in history. I'm Cynthia Graber and I'm Nikola twilly and this episode. We're getting to the bottom of how McDonald's took over America. The story starts with WHO invented the hamburger burkart. And how did it become so ubiquitous that it gets bigger from there this episode. We're asking his McDonald's basically America's national cuisine and if it is is what can it tell us about who we are as a country less. How did the tax payer ended up funding the spread of McDonald's in the inner cities and why we're civil rights groups on board? Well whatever idea you have of of. How huge fast food is you should double or triple in your mind because the statistics are bonkers? They're completely bananas us. Eighty percent of Americans eat fast food every month. Ninety six percent of them eat fast food every year which is more than the number of Americans that participate participate on the Internet atom. Says there's not a single place in America that eighty percent of Americans go to at least monthly not a library or Jim or any house of worship according according to the Centers for Disease Control which is not happy about this stat. More than a third of American children eat food every day and for the population as the whole. It's roughly the same thirty six percent of us. Eat it every single day.

President trump is expected to speak about this in about an hour and crude oil. Prices have been down quite a bit this morning. Down eight tenths of a percent to sixty two dollars and twenty one cents. One key reading of this is is that oil market Susan Schmidt is head of US equities at Aviva investors. It isn't unusual but because we're thinking of our historic responsive remember that this isn't isn't the seventies we're a net export of energy products now and so the fact that we're in a very different position when it comes to oil and gas supply allows us take a much more relaxed response to this.

McDonald's is testing crispy chicken sandwich into markets. I'm sorry to report that. Neither of those markets as close to me Houston Texas and Knoxville Tennessee today through the end of January. McDonald's is testing this out. I think if you're a McDonald's shareholder you've gotta it'd be popping the champagne because this is I mean. This is the story of well arguably the story for McDonald's twenty nine thousand nine is the sudden departure of the CEO but but right after that is earlier this year where the independent board of Franchisees send the letter to management saying priority number one is a southern style. crispy chicken sandwich so we can compete with chick-fil-a and now Popeye's and well done franchisees because they appear beginning their wish. Well done if it's well done because chick-fil-a sets a pretty high bar. I have not tried the Popeye's chicken sandwich because I'm not going to wait in line for the chicken sandwich any any more than the normal amount of time. You wait in line for chicken sandwich but McDonald's has to get this right and the reality is they've struck out with premium. Chicken sandwiches sandwiches. They also have not done a particularly good job in the past decade since I was a kid with event launches remember when it used to. I'd be like it's the Olympics and like McDonalds have they were the sort of original pioneer in that seasonal exciting special offering. And it really petered out. I mean they did that. The whole international menu earlier this year and few weren't driving by McDonald's you didn't ever really good sense of what was going on so I do think this is good but the sandwich you better be good and that's not always easy to pull off. Yeah I'm I'm trying to remember who it was but Someone maybe it was Burger King someone in the last year or two a rolled out a new product that had been field tested. And it hasn't really worked. I think a great example would be Caso Kepala other ego where where they did a lot of tests and that's what it was. It was just because now it works but the first time they're like. Hey we tested it in these markets and we're ready for the roll rollout and nationally. It was a loss in my opinion. They asked some of the wrong questions. Because people like the taste but there was an expectation for appearance. Appearance with K so that it it still doesn't deliver on so they were kind of missing the mark and I don't think McDonald's will do that but tastes or subjective. Do you really. You believe the Popeye's chicken sandwich is better than like a chicken sandwich at a nice restaurant that does chicken sandwiches probably not but people have gone mad for it so it becomes a viral thing and and more a status symbol than necessarily the quality of the chicken sandwich. I absolutely agree with you that they need to get this right but I also think that they don't need for the sandwich to be the best they don't need it to be better than Chick-fil-a they just needed to be good enough. So that that particularly on Sundays when every chick-fil-a is close people. Say All right. I'll go to McDonald's for that. I feel like if you're a McDonald's you should really just google. How do I make tick Philip Chicken Sandwich because you can do that? You could find all the fast food and different ways to make it at home and that really should be your flavor profile and what you're going for. I'm not saying copy. Get a hundred percent. Exactly maybe ninety eight percent exactly. But there's clearly a standard for this and Chick-fil-a has created reputation that it's a premium product which people will pay a premium price for. McDonald's has struggled with premium price. So they may have to deliver premium product at a pretty good but not premium price. So it's a bit of a tight rope but yeah if they can make this work. I think it'll be a driving. Hit for them before we wrap up. It's been a tradition on this show starting back in two thousand fifteen started by our producer extraordinaire.
