35 Burst results for "million dollars"
Kodak Crashes 85% from Recent Peak
"Kodak. We've been all over this for the past two weeks. Right I told you they got a seven hundred and sixty five million dollar loan to get into the drug. Business Kodak the Film Camera Company getting into the drug business. Turns out in their one hundred thirty, one year history they actually were in the drug business for six years from one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, hundred, ninety, four, it was a failure they got out and it's notable that they got in one thousand nine, hundred, eighty, two years before the recession set in right typical top of the cycle de Worse vacation kind of acquisition move for for a company is being managed into into the ground so. That's where it to the reason episode again and and we're back in the drug business with this seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan from the government I thought that was just kind of crazy enough all by itself because sent the stock soaring from to sixty two on a Monday to sixty dollars at the peak on a Wednesday in you know the third trading session of the week that week. Just insane. That was crazy enough right. Then what are we talk about last week? Well, they granted themselves stock options the day before announcement like that's not fishy like. Crony capitalist move, you know to just try to rake some of his money off the top of the management team. Okay. Now. This Week There's well other stuff going on. So so since last we talked the SEC is investigating this thing. And the loan from the. International, the government agencies called the DNC, the Development Finance Corporation the DNC loan is on hold. And the stock as I speak Ios below ten bucks again, and if you look at the stock chart of the last several days, it looks like it was flatlined. You know like somebody whose heart stopped and then wham the hit it with the paddles and now it looks like his heart stopped again it's a ridiculous episode but I feel like I need to clarify something because of at least one feedback email I got in this case. No, it is not okay for these executives to get stock option grants it's not okay and it wasn't okay for them to get them. I don't believe even back in May. Right I put together a time line I wrote a whole piece about this for the stands very digest and I put together a time line and my timeline showed that the order the executive order from President Trump. Was May fourteenth. Two days before that Kodak moves seventy million dollars from a Chinese subsidiary to a US subsidiary quote in anticipation of an intercompany transaction and quote I believe starting up a new pharmaceutical subsidiary constitutes an intercompany transaction, right? So that was actually made twelfth may fourteenth. Trump is used the executive order and invokes the defense production act and says, Hey, you know, let's lend money to companies so that we can produce drugs domestically because too much drug production is overseas in places like China and India by the way if you research that, it's not completely true. We'll talk about that. Maybe another day Kodak made the director option grants the first time on May twentieth today their annual meeting. So, eight days before they're moving money from Chinese from a foreign subsidiary to to a US subsidiary anticipation of a major transaction. Then trump invokes this defense production act, which is just appropriates money for national security right two days later, then six days later, they grant themselves these options at premium prices. Then approximately may eighth according to an interview with the CEO Kodak, and this government agencies start talking about its new drug business. Then on July twenty seven, these idiots grant themselves more options. Then July twenty eighth and it leaks out stock was up twenty, five percent that day the news leaked out. and. Then Twenty John Twenty as the big announcement right? Seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan to Kodak the shares were up four fold that day July twenty, ninth the stock price hit sixty dollars. And the volume that day is like a hundred and sixty times the previous day and the previous day was twenty, two times the David were that. Next Day July thirtieth a fellow called Mike or non gap thoughts. Which is a a newsletter that he writes on sub stack non gap thoughts. He writes this article citing these suspicious option grant dates when and strike prices next day July thirty fourth. Wall Street? Journal publishes an article citing the potential you know ninety, they said ninety five million dollar windfall for CEO Jim Continente. And there were others on on the Management Team received the options to August. Fourth Wall Street Journal publishes an article citing a new SEC investigation into the disclosure of the loan and the option grants right because it looked like the the loan with the news of the Lomas leaked out on the twenty seventh I think is really what they were concerned about. But the whole thing stinks and let me tell you something what I alluded to earlier when I said I need to make something clear about this. This is not the way capitalism is supposed to work. A corporate management team is supposed to make a lot of money. They're supposed to get ninety five million dollars for creating a business that has performed well for a period of time. That has generated you know for ninety, five, million bucks. You'd better be generating you know at least a billion or more couple of billion hopefully in free cash flow over a period of time consistently, right a real sustainable business for that kind of reward. You don't get paid that kind of money just for getting a loan to be in a business that you were in for six years out of your one, hundred, thirty, one year history and sucked at. Okay that's not the way this is supposed to work. This is the ranking crony capitalism, the EST crony capitalism. And crony capitalism is when you get paid for no in people, right it starts looking suspicious back in May when they're moving seventy million bucks from China to the US, it looks like they already knew they were going to do something and then Oh, two days later trump invokes this this executive order appropriating these loans for this kind of stuff and then up six days. Later, we start granting ourselves options at prices that suggests we know the stock is GonNa take off like a rocket ship. Then we do it again on July twenty seven just to show you how utterly stupid we are. This is not the way it's supposed to work they basically what they did here was. They just took money from well, you know this government money. So you could say they took taxpayer money and they said how can we get way too much of this money in our own pockets? Oh, I know let's grant ourselves a bunch of options. Okay, your stand. Now, I don't have a problem with option grants in general I. Realize people need to be incentivized. It's just the way. Things are nowadays right to to attract good management. You gotta pay them. What looks like way too much money a lot of the time, but this is not that. This is a management team taking money from taxpayers and really taken ultimately from shareholders as well. They're given themselves equity for free that the shareholders have to buy in the market. This isn't the only episode of this. You'RE GONNA see there was a smaller episode that I I kinda filed this way I didn't think I was going to mention it but there was a guy. David? T hines in a story in the Washington. Post. July. Twenty Eighth I mean it's all allegations so I don't know I'll just say this poor fool apparently borrowed four million dollars in this federal PPP paycheck paycheck protection program it was part of the cares act. Right. The cares act was that two trillion dollar corona virus bill that was signed into law in March and included three hundred and forty, nine billion in forgivable loans for small businesses to maintain operating expenses. Mostly payroll, right? That's why it's called. PAYCHECK protection program. So you can just pay your employees even though maybe you're running a restaurant and they have to stay home because of the cove in nineteen, right. So this guy gets four million from this program and then a week later people see him riding around. Miami beach in a Lamborghini. A brand new Lamborghini Lamborghini. Hurricana. Which I guess. That's an electric Lamborghini costs more than three hundred, eighteen, thousand dollars again, how stupid is this guy? That's like granting yourself options the day before the loan announcement. And of course, these things are ripe for. For, this kind of abuse, this is what you get went when the government starts literally like throwing money around all, this is done very very hastily right because we think we have to act we have to act now. and. So this is what you wind up with. You wind up with Kodak and you wind up with this poor sad sack who who thought he wasn't GonNa get caught when he use P P peabody to buy a fricking Lamborghini. It's you know somebody's going to include that in some kind of TV you know some kind of fictional TV show because it's just too priceless. So that's where we are that. That's where we are in. You know the state of of all things financial in August of twenty twenty. Boy Twenty twenty is the weirdest fricken year. I mean things that I won't even get into some of the things that that people I know have been exposed to this year, but it's just. So it's also utterly weird when you shut who who'd a thunk who'd a thunk when you shut down the global economy because you're afraid everybody's going to get the flu or whatever. That all of this stuff would happen that you would get people you know in Lamborghinis with government money and you know Kodak Management taking money out of taxpayers, pockets would have thunk it. Anybody. With a brain is the answer to that one anybody with a brain. And what what you do about what you do about it well. Look we told I told you to avoid Kodak because. People look at that kind of action and the knee jerk. The thing that's built into your brain you know that's that's been kind of evolving for hundreds of thousands of years in complete evolved for hundreds of thousands of years completely different circumstances that have nothing to do with investing. So immediately, as soon as you see that surge Kodak you want hit the buy button but I'm telling you it's deadly and wrong every single time

Insider trading issues raised after Kodak's stock gets hot
"Shares of Kodak taking another leg lower today as the drama around the company Continues Swirl. The latest twist. Kodak. Significantly up to its lobbying spending before being awarded seven hundred and sixty five million dollar government loan according to Reuters Kodak Spent Eight hundred seventy thousand dollars in lobbying efforts between April and June. Compare that to less than five thousand dollars it spent in Q. One of twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred now as. We've been reporting here on fast money. The rise in Kodak's years before news officially broke of that government loans, concerns of insider trading and an SEC broke the company's earnings call last night Kodak CEO said, he supports the government's decision to put the loan on hold until I'd investigation is complete. Karen you have puts in this stock. What is remarkable is that it's nowhere near the level it was trading at prior to the win the loan was announced. Right. Five hundred percent more than that. It's interesting to me that that's a great return on those lobbying dollars, right? I mean eight, hundred, thousand. Seven hundred sixty, million dollar loan or whatever. It might be I think the CEO had to say that I don't really know what else he can say like does disregard those that all that option noise give us the money anyway I think that this I think it's sort of become an embarrassment of to the trump administration and they probably should just. Speaking now someone who's long puts right that they should just let this one go and not not fun this loan it's too noisy. Ten and Every part of that option is just terrible right Tim. What it gets back to you know even if they get the loan, are they the right company to be producing the pharmaceutical? Talk. Once upon a time, try to be a blockchain company. Now back to photography company trying to be a generic drugmaker ingredient maker is right company. I mean. This is a company that has tried to reinvent itself Multiple Times since twenty twelve bankruptcy. And so I just it's hard for me to understand. We don't have enough of a show to talk about the what lobbying efforts or like and the impact and how the shouldn't happen anyway even with real companies. But I think if you look at the trading volume volume on the stock, it went from trading by appointment to trading two hundred and fifty million shares at its peak two weeks ago It's still trading about nine million shares to about eating a million dollars of turnover which tells you there's just an extraordinary backdrop still I agree with Karen, I think there's more to go here.
Big Ten and Pac-12 postpone 2020 football, pushing the college sport closer to total fall shutdown
"The most historic and powerful conferences in college athletics. Given up on false sports, the big ten and PAC twelve postponed their fall seasons. This is a big deal, not just because of sports as the New York Times explains big football programs in those conferences, -versities recruit students and attracted donations even though college football is a multibillion dollar industry, it's apparently no match for the corona virus. The conferences say they're worried about the health of their players and they point out the can't just put them in a bubble like some professional sports leagues are doing. That's because the players still. Still have to go to class with other students and be part of the broader campus community that said, the conferences are hoping to hold their football soccer and other seasons in the spring instead. So this'll be shaking up hundred million dollar TV contracts and scouting deals with the pros remember to other smaller conferences also backed away from fall sports over the last few days. All in all the AP says, forty percent of major college football teams will not be playing this fall and more are still expected to bow out.

Business Is Booming At National Parks
"Standing outside the north entrance to Yellowstone National Park in Gardner Montana you could tick through about two dozen state license plates in the time that it takes you to drink a coffee. That is normal in the summer. What's not normal is the people driving those cars doing stuff like this we rented a van and it has a Florida license sag but I put a sign in the back window that said we are not from Florida. Lynn Hunter and her family are from Kansas, your that Kansas, even grandson, Noah will tell you. Don't want anybody think we are same goes for just about any place that's been in the news recently for having spikes in Cova Cases Families like the hunters are driving national parks like yellowstone in droves right now, king to escape from wherever are trying to salvage a summer of stress and they know that it comes with risks we were scared to come really we've been planning it for a long time. So here they are at one of the country's first national parks and they're happy they did thing is the same is true for about one point five, million other people since mid-may Ricarda, raise, and his family are from North Carolina. Made. It will be a kind of a little bit but a lot of people out there over the last couple of weeks the number of cars entering the Gardner entrance at Yellowstone National Park are higher than they were at the same time.

Financial Services Analytics, Before and After AI - with Dr. Derek Wang of Stratifyd
"So Derek I want to get started with this kind of problem of operationalizing analytics. You guys work in financial services, a lot of our audiences, retail banks, big insurance firms at a lot of them have similar problems. How do you describe this core issue of how disjointed the analytics? What does it look like in there? Yeah. Let me give an example when I a professorship I was working hours Department of Homeland Security and Defense Strategy Deduction Agency, and really working on multimillion dollar kind of federal research to Human Jenner data to predict pandemic hall pathogens transmitted from different nations donation. It's a very timely skill right now derek a forty. Five years ago, six years ago. Got Big projects. They're Harvard. That's part of the. The motivation of starting stratified is because when we done not eighteen twenty, four months of product would deliver our software to folks on the other side, just start using it. They can operationalize that because as many Prada as we have been serving without customer, it's so centralized in a small group like the PhD's like the data scientists were looking at, it wanted pushed. A business is harder for them to use it. Right? That's where it triggers. The whole motivation of generating company like stratified is, let's let's bring future data analytic, which is really operational is the data analytics. Poaching that from the business lines, then live on business started using that in solving everyday problems they have. So we essentially become the operating system on their business analysts, their desktops day in day out there analyzing it in our station and my philosophy as in ever their laptops either they're collecting data. Or they're making decisions. So that's where we're going to operation is analytics for folks. Got It. So I'M GONNA assume a little bit up and kind of paint the problem a little bit more, and then we can start to go into some example. So the challenge that you're articulating is that analytics sits in this it universe where maybe I t tell me if I'm wrong here, they might build some dashboards they might build. Build some little interfaces maybe, but they're not day to day up next to the marketing people day to day up next to the compliance people day to day of next to the fraud people in financial services, for example. So those people in the business. So to speak in those operational wings, they don't really get their hands dirty with analytics, they just kind of get whatever they can request and whatever get built for. For them and what you're talking about is a dynamic where they actually can have their own interface and build and use the things they want. Am I hearing you. Correctly, you're absolutely right. One little thing to add to that is they're lacking the feedback channel, right? They're always as treated as consumers of what the other team has spilled. However, what other teams build because they are not business savvy, their lack of bag. Bag and updating what they're looking at to your point dashboard whatever the real time hurts the business. Yeah. Yeah. Because I guess nothing could be as customize. It really needs to be for the compliance people unless they're able to engage with it and build out the way they need or the marketing people build it out the way that they need. Now, of course, that's kind of a new skill set in a new. Set of things to learn for those teams and when I think about adopting a I, you guys, obviously, you have enough traction you for a fifty million dollars at this point. So clearly you have, you know some traction onto your belt for you folks, you've got to build I, guess, build something that simple enough that a person marketing or compliance will actually use. So I'm seeing that this problem is we've got to be. Consumers of what it builds analytics. That's not great. We WanNa see our own things about churn or about some regulatory issues or or whatever. But if if we want to put it in the hands of those users and let them really engage, how do we make it simple enough for them? What are the lessons you learned there because to me, that feels like a big challenge. It absolutely is, and you said are valued problem really while it's really democratizing Ai. Right. So think about this. What we have it, we will we have put a lot is simplify the model, right? You don't need to know what model is what you care as a marketing. You care about the results you care about attorney. Cariballo. Complies will we have done is spent a lot of time researching into how we can provide automatic machine learnings. Now, just one model. Model, not just two models is really led the model, the fit in whatever data for my to it. So that's simply put stratified were based on four simple part of one flywheel number. One will provide over one hundred, fifty data collections as individual. Do you don't need to worry about how can get hands on data? You are data market, you can get all the data connect to it. secondarily, that's where the preparatory auto, but she learnings county in our. It will go into based on what data get in automatically apply analytics and then visually showing you. Boys Costumer as Customer, experience folks to see what are the head and signals that really locks into that data set, and then you can start connecting those signals interactivity real time to tell a story. So that's how you made a simple straightforward and it becomes a skill sets that people can start leveraging without
Dwayne The Rock Johnson is Buying an Entire Football League
"For many of us, Monday nights sieve Longman, Monday, night football. So today's a good day to consider a shakeup in the football world. The potential revival of a would be competitor to the National Football League last week actor and former pro wrestler Dwayne the Rock Johnson with other investors bought a start-up Football League called the xfl this take some explanation especially to those who aren't avid sports fans. Let's start with the xfl contrary to popular belief. The NFL doesn't football is just had a monopoly for the most part for so long that most. Most people consider it an institution for the last couple of decades though rivals have attempted to build new leagues to compete with the. NFL. The XFL is one of those its roots began way back in the year two, thousand when World Wrestling Federation chairman. Vince. McMahon decided to build a league that could compete with the NFL NBC Cohen the League and planned to carry its games the XFL plan to extend the football season by playing games from just after the Super Bowl in February. Until late April. Now, at the time league owners, hopes were high that the Saturday night games could Wu and elusive audience TV. Teenage boys according to CNN. Vince McMahon. WWF had been almost magical in its ability to appeal to twelve to twenty four year. Old Males who typically don't stay home watching TV on Saturday nights. The xfl hoped McMahon could bring that WWF formula to football and win that desirable TV audience, and for one brief moment, it looked like their hopes were within reach the first game in two thousand, one drew more than fifteen million viewers a massive audience. That gold ring looked close and yet it turned out to be so far away as the season wore on audiences spell like a botched handoff after that single season, the xfl shutdown. Sometimes in life timing really is everything, and so it goes for Vince McMahon who decided that twenty twenty would be the right time to revive the xfl it launched in February, pitching the Seattle dragons against the DC defenders teams played five games among both players and owners. Optimism rained TV audiences varied by geography, but were decent enough that by March believe was well into planning the twenty twenty, one season. And then Kobe came along the League canceled the season March twentieth less than a month. Later, the XFL filed for bankruptcy sports writers added the xfl lists of other WanNa, NFL competitors who'd also tried to make a go of it over the years. The XFL seemed to be just another failed startup, but perhaps they declared the league's death too soon. Let's get back to Dwayne Johnson better known as the Rock Johnson actually started his career as a football player, but never made it to the NFL instead, he joined Vince McMahon's wwf where he quickly rose to superstardom before retiring to become an actor, he's now the highest paid actor in the world according to Forbes. With his business partner Danny Garcia who also happens to be his ex wife, the rock led the fifteen million dollar purchase of the. xfl. Out of Bankruptcy Sports Management Company redbird capital as a third partner. Johnson says the purchase was actually Garcia's idea she loves football and when the XFL declared bankruptcy, she saw their chance to own not just a team but an entire league not to get too grand about this. Consider that the salary of a single NFL football star say. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak. Prescott is thirty, one million dollars. That's more than double what the partners paid for the xfl which has eight teams. Still, the deal made headlines. Perhaps it's a bit of hopeful light entertainment amidst the onslaught of grim. News in two thousand, twenty, Garcia. Johnson. Say They plan to produce multimedia content for fans year round, not just during the active spring season at production time, they hadn't yet said when the League will start to play again.
Briogeo: Nancy Twine
"The easiest part about building a business is the day you imagine it in your head because everything that happens after it is really hard the research, the business plan the pitch to investors finding the factory, the distributor, the shops to sell your product. Each one of these steps is an obstacle and for the most part, each step creates a new problem. Too many problems can become overwhelming and soon enough it can also become tempting to just ditch the whole idea entirely. So to avoid that trap. Nancy twine took each problem one at a time, which is good because her idea was pretty complicated. To build a line of natural shampoos and conditioners without most of the synthetic ingredients you'd find in other hair care products. She also wanted to design a line of products for all hair types and textures, and she one of those products on the shelves of Sephora one of the premier beauty retailers in the world all of these problems Nancy would eventually solve her brand. is now carried by Sephora and is expected to do almost forty million dollars in sales this year. But to get there especially with zero experience in the beauty industry was gonNA pose a series of major challenges starting with finding a chemist who actually believe you couldn't make this stuff without parabens or sulfates or phthalates, or any of the other common chemicals you need to make shelf stable shampoo. Biggest early challenge though was having the courage to start the business at all. It was two thousand and ten and Nancy was in her twenty s on the fast track is a trader for Goldman. Sachs. In New York. And one day without any warning. A tragedy completely upended her life and prompted Nancy to reevaluate the way she was living at which we'll get to. Nancy grew up on Long Island New York her parents split up when she was a kid Nancy's mother was a physician and the twines were one of the few black families in their neighborhood. My mom was a family doctor and I don't even know if that term is quite used anymore. And I do remember at a young age being at her doctor's office and it was always full. You know a lot of people ask me where I got this very confident entrepreneurial experience from but I think that there was so much value and power of me seeing my mom running a successful practice really running a business. My Mom was an entrepreneur in seeing that at a young age seeing her confidence seeing her joy and the fact that being a female being a black female was not a hindrance. To any of the dreams and goals that I would ultimately have in life in red like as a kid used to go to West Virginia Lot. But what's the connection to to West? Virginia he asked. So my mom is from West Virginia. She's one of eight children and my grandmother is from there and that's where she raised her tribe and a very small rural town called Rand R. A. N. D.. What did you know about her upbringing? I mean it's like I. Think to this day. It's one of the whitest states in the country and obviously one of the poorest states in the country did she ever talk about what her childhood was like there? Yeah it was. It was definitely a tough childhood. They didn't grow up with a lot and the fact that my mom grew up in that type of environment not only not having an a lot but not being able to see what success and beyond that lifestyle could look like because. so much of wanting to become better. Or becoming successful comes from seeing other people who look like you that have done it. And when you don't even see the possibility but knowing within you that it exists in having that faith and belief in yourself. It's so so powerful and that was very much my mom's
Interview With Skye Pillsbury
"I'm sure it's fine. So without further ado, let's talk a little bit too sky about leaving inside podcasting like she just made the announcement that not only was this her last season but that she would no longer be writing for inside podcasting which I don't know if you guys know this but unlike hot pod and Pod News, Sky Actually works for a company that has asked her to create inside podcasting. It's not her own is not of her own fruition. So what came about that made you decide? No Moss. So I have been percolating in my brain for a few months I had actually talked to inside about it about three months prior and. I feel for I say that I'm super grateful to inside it opens so many doors for me to meet so many interesting people you included and so I loved the experience of writing for them but it did feel after two years like I was I was really pouring my blood sweat and tears into the podcast and the newsletter. It just felt like I was every day that I was working for them and building this thing for them. Felt like a day that I wasn't building something for me it didn't feel that. Way In the beginning but once I, sort of like established myself a little bit I just had this nagging feeling that it was time to do something new and I don't know right now exactly what form that is gonNA take but I will be keeping people posted about that on twitter and there's a few different things I'm craving one could be more ownership over something that I create one could be working with more of a team because it was very much a solo effort and sort of crave like that's why doing this. PODCAST with you guys, it's so fun for me because you're my friends and it's it's you know the sense of community that I haven't really had and you know it would be nice to get paid more. You know no one goes into journalism to make a million dollars. So I had all of that. The other thing which I think is fine for me to share is that Jason who is my boss? He's the founder of inside wanted and had been sort of hammering me for a few months to make eight paid newsletter. He's done that with a lot of the other newsletters that inside produces an I really didn't want to do that I didn't feel that my readers were the kind of years that necessarily that all of them had like extra funds to spend on newsletters that you know is my news are critical to your workday probably not it's. It's a nice fun thing to read but I also didn't want to be writing a newsletter for like the twenty people that pay I mean I don't know how many people it would have been we had. Eighteen thousand subscribers so maybe it would have been more, but the point is that what I WANNA do is to write for a big audience of people who love podcast, and so that was another had staved off for months and I knew that it is certain point I wasn't going to be able to do that anymore. So that was a big reason to for me. To say I think I need to you know it's time for me to strike out on my own I have no, there's no bad blood. There are no hard feelings. Jason is a total work, but in a weird way I, kind of love him too and I definitely am appreciative to the company and everyone that I worked with they're just as your friend. I you've never. Said anything bad about Jason that I can recall. You've always said nothing but nice things about him and it sounds like your dilemma is the dilemma of every entrepreneur whether you knew you were one or not. Eventually we all do that where even if you're already working for yourself like for me as a graphic and web designer I was working I was doing projects hourly. And at first, it was six yards and our, and then I was like wait in three hours only making one hundred, eighty bucks that's ridiculous and then I then you move it up and then you move it up and when you're working for someone else you don't get anywhere near what you would pay as a consultant and you're still like, wow, I spent eight hours there. And I made three hundred dollars and also I, didn't know work that I get to keep crap. You want your own body of work you want your audience and your traffic, and when you're talented, you know you're talented and when you're good even if you're not marketing like you know that you're good at your job and therefore wants to do it on your own behalf. So I totally get that and I think it's a big conversation right now within podcasting is that. Specific to podcasting a lot of people are producing podcasts and not getting the same kind of deals especially particularly, I. Think people of Color. Not Getting the same deals as other people are getting from the companies that they work for you know Britney lose from the nod has been very vocal about that as well as Meka Yousef created tell them. I am these are conversations that are out there happening my situation was different. I was under no illusion that I was going to be able to keep. Anything, but it is that same feeling of like you know it is weird for me. I have to say that they might continue that podcast and they'll be completely different homes and yet it really was like my creation and you know hopefully, it will always be out there but it's time for me to build something for me whether it's writing podcasting even freelancing I don't know it. I want to be more in control of my own destiny as an and I loved the interaction with readers and if I had to make it pay walled that interaction would have really narrowed and you know what I loved about writing. That was just like I had a big audience and people who wanted to engage with the and I. Hope

Why Growth at Grayscale Exploded in the Last Quarter
"It's recently quarterly report gray scale announced record inflows. Tell us about that. So on a quarter, we'd be says, our team puts out a report that looks back at investment activity across the gray scale family of products over that most recent quarter in we try and break down for the investment community which products have inflows, which products more popular than others, what the breakdown is different types of investors any other trends that we're seeing amongst our investor base. and. Though regularity, these reports have really allowed them to become almost the defacto sentiment indicator for investment in the days in in two this year, we raised over nine hundred, million dollars in just that second quarter, and that was on the back of raising over half a billion dollars in Q. One this year. So we're really seeing influence into the gray scale products at a record pace. And that's almost double. What do you think accounts for the massive increase in interest? I think that the macro environment is causing a lot of investors to focus on Crypto in a way that perhaps had before I think one of the most topical things that investors are talking to us about is unlimited quantitative easing and as they look at how much the Fed and other governmental bodies are printing, they're really starting to drill into the verifiable scarcity of assets like get. Coin and when you think about that very important attribute that bitcoin has and then you combine it with bitcoins uncoordinated nature and it's not just bitcoin. Right? It's other digital currencies as well. Investors are starting to appreciate that there is a new in uncoordinated return that they can maybe get from having exposure to digital currencies, and now the timers in a lot of investors digging on the space. and. So when you talk about the quantitative easing that does, of course, immediately bring to mind bitcoin because of the cap on its supply and when you started your answer, you were talking primarily in Bitcoin or about bitcoin but I wondered how the interest in the currencies was spread out. Is it? Eighty percent in Bitcoin or you know what are you seeing in terms of the interest across the various crypto sense? So Greasy now has ten different investment products and a great deal bitcoin trust is our flagship product. It's been around the longest. It's our largest no question about it We've seen a market uptaken interest across the other products. So in particular, I'd highlight in cute too. We saw a lot of interest in the gray scale at theory and trust. In really seeing more investment really coming in across the board and I believe now of our returning institutional investors, we now see over eighty percent of them having now invested in more than one race cal product meaning they. Now you have exposure to more than one digital currency and it's interesting to think about that audience because for many of them, Bitcoin is their first foray. It's the place that they're most comfortable with it done the most research on typically it's what gets them comfortable and gets them to give their telling the space, and we're now releasing a growing trend of investors not just wanting acquainting exposure, but they actually see diversification benefits of having more than one crypto currency exposure in their portfolio. And when you said that if him was another one of the assets that was gaining a lot of interest what's driving that because the theorem does not have a cap on its supply. So I was curious to know why they were focusing on that out of all the other non bitcoin assets. Well. I think BIRLA investors at theory like coin has a lot of staying power on it to like acquaintance overcome a lot of adversity and I think investors are starting to drill into some of the east cases around the theory. powering defy and a lot of other new applications which theory is really targeted towards where I think for more investors thinking about Bitcoin, they're really thinking about it more along the lines of digital gold or a digital store of value. And who is coming to you now, are you seeing interest from new groups and what types of investors are coming to gray scale? We'll still gracie obeys assets primarily from institutional investors. So we deal primarily with accredited investors. So it does include a lot of high net worth individuals and. Family Office is financial advisers but believe the vast majority of the actual dollars that we're getting are coming from the hedge funds on and then other types of institutions, endowments, and pensions, and I think one of the most things we actually broke this out in some reports. This year is that the allocations aren't coming from any one kind investor I. Think you know for a lot of folks bitcoin digital currency investing its momentum traders or it's for funds that really only are experienced in investing in technology or In. Venture capital things that are really on the riskiest end of the spectrum in Farrah's when we look at the actual mandates of our investors, it's everyone from global macro funds to value funds to risk arbitrage funds. Any every single kind of investor mandate is represented in the gray scale investor bays, which I think the takeaway is. Digital currency investing is certainly not for everyone is risky too early days you know a lot of investors need to have a patient in kind of medium term horizon for their investment, but it does that mean that it's something that everyone should at least be considering and we're already seeing empirical data that it's making its way into the portfolios of investors of all different kinds of mandates.

Tackling Systemic Racism in the Fashion Industry
"I everybody and welcome to today's be O. F. Live event. I'm Lauren Chairman Be Offs Executive Editor and I'm joined today by Brandis Daniel Chief Executive of Harlem's fashioned row Sandrine Charles founder of Sandrine. Charles. Consulting Henrietta Galina Brandon creative consultant, and today we're GONNA be talking about a really important topic always but you know especially in the last few months, how to tackle system racism in fashion it's a really big question I'm sure we'll only. Get Two to one or two points here. But but we want to do as much as we can, and in this hour that we have what I wanted to do I is for each of you to introduce yourselves and what you do in your own activists as well. So maybe talk a bit about what you've been working on in the last couple months as the civil rights movement has really come to the forefront in the US, Henrietta maybe we can start with you. I, everyone I'm Lena. I am a direct up by way of saying have been in the fashion industry for. About fifteen years now. What can range of. Brands. DIFFERENCE CASS grades. and. So. My wife is always been rooted increase efficiency inclusions I've asked. My wife tens of mocks stories. An image making and I would say, miss recently I WANNA be. confounds the cut initiative which Let's have a appoint Yucky. Great. Thank you brandis. What about you? I am the. Founder Pearl Fashion Row and icon sixty Harlem's fashion row has been doing this work thirteen years we on started really kinda focusing on designers of color in creating opportunities for them, connecting them with brands, press, and with consumers as well. we've also done several brand collaborations have been a great way to really bring diversity to brands who who may not have had. It were win couvert hit on the pandemic. We started a nonprofit icon sixty, which is basically a fine or designers of collar and We've been able to raise thanks to the NBA took over a million dollars in donations for designers of. Car. It sandrine last but not least I am. Sandrine. Charles of I have been working in the industry for thirteen years. Now, I own Sandrine Charles Salting, which is a week. Calms and Everything encompassing that agency her fashion and lifestyle brands. In addition, I'm the founder alongside Lindsay People's or the black and fashion council. Thank you offer for sharing that so. I think to start. This is a really big question, but obviously, the civil rights movement that's happening right now has been. Very prominent in the news in the last month, it's obviously never not existed but it suddenly. You know the fifteen percent pledge. Protest every single day. Brands are really saying I. WanNa make a difference they're publicly. Saying I'm going to do all these things to be more diverse, etc, etc. Now, a lot of their ex employees or or. You know. Consumers are calling them out for not practicing what what they are are pre chain and I'm curious to know from you all your all veterans in this industry you've you've witnessed this the systemic racism that is particular to fashion. What what do you think? The biggest issue is Ashen and that we can start working on or You know people are already working on but what is the? Biggest point that we need to tackle in order to start fixing all the little problems that have come out of this. Don't know if one of you wants to start. I'll. Brand half. Start I think on what Sandrine Lindsay is doing is asking with the Black Fashion Council asking brands to actually put a quantitative solution in place it's the same thing that Aurora Jane tasked with a fifteen percent pledge i. think the brands have to fully commit and the way that they can fully commit being you know here's exactly what we're going to do. So when you say I want my sales to get better you don't say go out to your. Team and say, you know what we want better cells next year what you do is you say WanNa ten percent increase we want to fifteen percent increase you know right so you create very clear goals so that you know if you're successful in meeting those goals or not successful meeting notes and if you're not successful, there are things you put in place to make sure you overcome that in me that all it's the same thing with this rain so I think. The first thing that Branston do is say, what is our commitment? What is our our firm commitment? Let's start with a very clear commitment and work our way back because my fear is that if we just start having conversations in conversation is a really key piece to this in having with lack people in non black people ruling to have honest dialogue. But my fear is that if we're only talking is the passion Unin die down in another. Year and I. think that's Oliver Fear Rate. But if you put a very clear plan in place and you say, this is what these are the numbers. We're GONNA hit across our organization that means in our leadership and on our boards because let's talk about boards and how they're barely any black people boards. There's only one black. CEO in the entire fashion industry. So that's just say what are we gonNa do across the Board in our organization? And then you work backwards from the air and doing what you have to do to to meet that goal. I one hundred percent agree into because of that I think about what the solutions, all the problem. I always come back to equity. And that's ultimately I think about risk driving for and I think what makes this time so ready Angry special in many ways, is that the asking leadership to support us with? Of. Traditional tax. Supporting. Mental. Internships I think already doing now is we're actually asking our structures like quite literally reopen is themselves to include us and then from where all collectively dying today. Tearing structures, things I. think that's really the only way that detained from a call out that house structure best is the Cha I'm. Deploying mechanisms to. Erase. Racism, I I think it is about equity. Entering do you have anything to add to that? Now I think this are. Really great points. I. It's definitely. A lot of things that Lindsey and my style and the executive or have been working on in terms of. What our goals out of its in having a long term strategy with friends is really essential. There's no way you can teach someone to unlearn something that was you know systematically in place for all of this time. So it's essential for us to not only educate work alongside people who are really willing and ready to make those changes. Over time in for us, it's a three to five year period with benchmarks and timelines and touch points. To see where are in how they are evolving

NFL Two which was in the office than strictly business rental strictly business. is going to see a week at a talk in particular today about about the Miami Dolphins because on the show. In recent weeks we'll be looking at teams that we think are amongst the most improved in the NFL and I think the dolphins suddenly are in the conversation that shore, so we want to joe down a bit more as to exactly what to expect this season where the upgrades all wedded deficiencies still are and try walkout what when it comes out in the wash that dolphin season's GonNa. Look like so. Let's start well. Let's start with with the dropped. He's something I've been thinking about. Going to I guess became almost a no brainer. Because of the three first round picks right. Do you, think the dolphins. If they'd had let's say, they had like most other noble teams only had one first rounder. Would they go fatuity think if they'd had less first round picks. I still think they would I, think they feel he's that guy. I think they're not worried about the medical concerns too much and. Look. We've been through this as dolphins fans. How many quarterbacks like being very since Dan Marino Scotteri so that time beyond said. They think he's the onset and I think they would've dice on the him. Regardless United, she thinks they will fill the business. We kind of expected around the draw that. Might trade off the might have to go out to win Detroit. Weather might move fend off charges at the weather. draft picks an I. Go like does make install straightaway, and in fact I think is in their best interests does. It looks like they feel like they were dressed that position. They would have gone. Interest, who's your favorite dolphins quarterback post.

"Sport leagues in the world, there is a team with an that is offensive to a significant number of people. Wise that being. What would you change it? It's just a nickname and here we. We aw thirteen fourteen fifteen years later only now, Simeoni Way Greg, because the sponsors they've got involved because money talks only now is Dan Snyder looking to make the change, is it? Am I being cynical? Is it just down to the money or is it? Would you like to think more than that and given? What's been going on over over recent weeks and months actually there has been a bit of self awareness in a reawakening in terms of the the moral. Issues with with a team named the redskins. That's a great question. I think it's mostly it is you know about the money and I think a lot of things in sports. You know when we get older, we maybe we get a little more cynical. I don't love in any less. You don't love it any. Let's listen probably. Don't love it any less, but we realize sometimes what athletes take play for. Look at look at everything. They're trying to do in North America right now, and it's A. It's a trickle down effect in terms of the teams. The League needs to play to fulfill the TV. TV. TV networks content. The players want their cash. They want their paychecks I. Don't blame them for that you know, go get yours while the thing here with Daniel. Snyder is as you said You know the fact that it took to major corporation Fedex would whose names on the stadium and Nike To. Basically a twelve hour period last week to really push back on the nickname it's it's tricky. Right because you want to give them. Credits and I'm sure there's people that want to say. Where have you been as you said the last decade that gate and a half in terms of being active on this and look, we'll never get unanimity. We will never get. Get that on what offends somebody never so what Washington Daniel Snyder of done before is they found native activists. They've taken them two games. They've made a big deal at when they're on the road to play the Vikings one year, and they found people from the state of Minnesota. Who are native American who got in front of a microphone and said? We love. The nickname doesn't bother us in the lease, but we will see in this now with covert. Are we like well? This doctor said this you. Doctors are on the planet. Who couldn't possibly agree on you know a a vaccine could possibly re-treatment. Possibly agree on any aspect of this so? I you know you can't cancel everything you've. A small minority allowed minority are offended by but study after study not seems to have shown that natives in this on this continent people of indigenous heritage. They say it's a slur. You'd never walk up to somebody on the street and and call indigenous person or native, American or native, Canadian in my country. That were you wouldn't do it I'm not even sure you'd use cheese, and that's the big thing that will go. There are chiefs, but you wouldn't call somebody that is a nickname, and that's that may be the next moment of reckoning for the NFL believe it or not, as Dublin Back Patrick Mahomes team. Yeah, and that nickname so. I'm not a hundred percent. Sure that the logo is changing in the least I think this has look. We've a twenty four hour news cycle as you know. What sort of hot one week is not hot the next week and we stopped talking about it so i. think this is given. Daniel Snyder at and the Washington team some ample time to wait this out a little bit and come up with something that would be more of a proud name. Chicagoblackhawks said today I saw this morning. They're not changing their name. We haven't heard from the Atlanta Braves. We haven't heard from although the MLB looking at it, obviously the Cleveland Indians. So you know, I know that this is going to be as much of a domino effect in changing the logos at there's tons of college teams. Tons of high school teams on this continent that have been steadfast some changed some of not but that. Yeah The Washington nickname I'm I'm Sir sure? Although I saw entered Brandt differ yesterday on twitter I'm sure they won't play another. Another game even if they can start the season on time in September I feel confident that they'll keep the logo and they will get rid of the name Ron Rivera. Wants it. Players wanted it's uncomfortable for players to even talk about Rivera said he would be awesome if it could be done before the start of the season on the money tip, and it's the point you. Made elsewhere, but. The. Value the obvious revenue that can be generated by yogurt is -ation with an entirely new brand? Right so is gonNA. See upside from a business perspective in that. If indeed it is business that is forcing time to do it. In in the fuss by. Or they changed their name. Choose the other question because their names suggestions flying around that the red tells the it seems to be the favorites in terms of Vegas Dwayne. Hoskins likes that as well the red tails deriving. From the Amazon which was the African American Aerial Combat Unit..

"So either way a big payday former homes, shirty solidity for this exciting chiefs offense is fighting chiefs franchise. That Andy Reid is got plenty of left in the tank as well say he isn't going anywhere. Those will be kept that together small business for me and we've talked about this a lot. Greg and it's like different situation here when you look at the level of steel and The scale of the deal. But? When there is a sure he in the front office whether it is on a draft, pick that other draft Nicks and other boards. They're reaching up here. I'm not sure if you assured that is your guy. You have conviction you go. Get Him to go pay, and if it's a receiver, the on free in free agency, and actually it seems like it's quite a rich deal. If you feel strongly that that receivers uplift your offense to the degree that you want, and it makes a Lotta sense doesn't matter to degree. Degree with the market says just go and do it and I feel that's exactly the same here that this is a play you can't deny is to only only keep that the chiefs, a serious contenders for the foreseeable future they are building. The foundations have an absolute dynasty. Hit the continuity with Andy Reid there they can keep the coordinates by and large together as much as possible Howard. White Lombardi suggesting this on his part about the enemy, and saying look if it's reads GonNa, stick around six seven years, and you say to be enemy mcdaniel stall in Foxborough you'll the heir-apparent just hang around that is that is a serious foundation for dentistry that the chiefs ability. That that's a big one. I'm glad you brought that up because I thought about that, you know Eric Enemies been really valuable that you and I are in Minnesota and we're watching and hearing from eagles. Players. Talk about frank, Reich at that point in time. I look you know they won. That super bowl with Nick foles The Eagles really struggled until the Super Bowl to put up points. They struggled in Chicago You know they handle the AFC title game. I suppose no problem against Minnesota but nick. Foles wasn't electric until he got that Super Bowl. Rank Reich had the. The two weeks. That design a game plan, so yeah, the offensive coordinator means so much, but yeah like there's just no other team outside of the chiefs. Now I could look at and I think you're you're you're you know you know it elaborating on it that the concept that I don't know how you don't think them in for multiple super. Bowl wits. It's a really hard thing to do because every time somebody gets. They're looking at Cam Newton team. Look at that team that went to San, Francisco, Santa Clara and play the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning's lasts deprecate. Cam Newton's fifteen in one. He's A. He's a unanimous NFL MVP. They've got leuke three on the defensive side. They've got weapons of Gut. Receivers have very good defensive line. And playoff game since then, and obviously you know the story for Cam who who predicted that five years later that sort be run out of Carolina. You know with no real great alternative as a reference This isn't like Tom Brady taken drew bledsoe's job or Steve or Steve, young. Joe Montana being pushed out the door to Kansas City so Steve Young. So. Yeah, it's a cautionary tale to start thinking that you know this quarterbacks going to keep doing this. Rogers never getting back to a super bowl. It's been ten years since Aaron. Rodgers has played in the Super Bowl. When that comes out of my mouth, I kinda even don't believe it but Patrick. Mahomes is going to win. Multiple Super Bowls air for any read I. Don't know how he doesn't. Exciting Times. Let's move on stories. I want to get into and I'll get a wwl back again to lead into the next one. At Short, yours how great handle What should the eagles do with e Jax? What he said was inexcusable in something should be done, but I have no idea what he's of course referring to Sean Jackson the Eagle in his second spell team still. If not at. In the top roster in his position, certainly, as he demonstrated last season, when he was fit an elite player, but he is in all kinds of trouble for posting content on his social media channels that contained anti, Semitic..

"Chiefs have missed that tear because of the pressure. It's GonNa. Put on the rest of the roster. You look a quarterback and I know. People will say well. He said he won one super bowl. And that's the the Green Bay. Packers of have really let down a generational talent. You look about like Aaron Rodgers I think this is true. Russell Wilson as well. The seahawks are able to cultivate something if I talk to nothing. Out of a weekend collection of pieces around it that rely on having an elite array of plays around them all the time, because the nature of how they play the game and oversee the caliber, an an ability, but definitely fits into that so to to to lay that out that even if he's. Receiving core, even if what is around him in three four or five years, time is the same level that it's at now. It's not gonNA matter to the chiefs with Muhoza. That back as much as it would many other situations, he should be able to elevate others. That is the big thing. is that elite quarterback should be able to you. Know Tom Brady. Brady obvious example you know. He got play Randy Moss for a few years, but but the guy made stars of Wes Welker, and now not knocking how hard west Welker worked or how efficient he was. Danny Amendola or Julian I'm not knocking those guys, but I don't think even e- inject the truth serum as I like to say into the Julian elephants in West. Do they go to Cincinnati and play with anti doll. You know if they go to you know. Arizona and they're playing with. Kind of decent Carson Palmer that's not the same as playing with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning's receivers over time though he had some great ones. Agassi, Marvin Harrison Reggie Wayne but there's a lot of guys that got rich year after year. Because Fayed Manning was throwing them. Touchdown passes no question. Five hundred million just over three that acted in the three a, but a lot of people saying that it probably would lost the ten years the ten year contract, the probably look at reopeing renegotiating it. midway through is the is the perceived wisdom.

"Pay I heard somebody say overpay for great town at the flip side of that is saying well look without his ability without he is the real deal, but it's not the overpay you count overpay because you immediately put pressure on the front of the rest of the roster. You won't have the weapons around him and you spend money on players like Sammy Watkins. Actually it doesn't make sense to go this high where you on the bones deal. I I'm inclined to think that Kansas City on and off. The field made a good transaction, but you're not wrong in that the dollar amount unless the CAP keeps rising doesn't have to rise exponentially in once. We're through the pandemic I. Think we don't think the NFL is a is a stock that you wouldn't. You wouldn't be selling NFL stock right now. There's a lot of other leagues I. Don't think you'd sell NFL stock think you'd sell primarily stock, but the you know. The sports sports in North America that are really struggling to potentially restart NBA. You're not sure you're not sure if they can't pull this off. Salary cap goes down NHL. Salary caps going down anyway because of missing half the regular season. So. That deals got some potency, but no listen you can pay to. You can pay an elite quarterback too much. New Orleans drew, brees went and got all the money. He could a lot of those years in New Orleans dimming. They were bad teams, so remember they had a few seven nine eight eight teams in a row before the last few seasons post their the Super Bowl win over Indianapolis, but they had to constantly reshape that roster to to make the money work for word your, brees was at. At, so Kansas City made an interesting call here I don't think the off field stuff can be undersold enough. This is not this is the most personable star athlete that we have on our continent. North America. This is the most practical athlete in terms of you want to sell something. Patrick Mahomes can sell it to you. There are no negatives. There's no you know You know red. XS against him. He's a guy that can sell anything and everything and I think the chiefs while utilizing that way. Jersey sales that you can patrick like you lose Patrick Mahomes and no, it was never getting to that, but locking him in for as long as possible. You know it's a massive commitment, but it's a big commitment on the hoses part. There might be somebody soon enough in three or four years. That makes a higher. Than Patrick Mahomes but I'll tell you I'm sure you'll get to. The everyone said to me in this the one thing that drove me crazy about the last forty eight hours. Everyone said you know this is good news for Dak Prescott. This is great news for the Shawn. Watson those aren't those aren't Patrick. Mahomes those layers are not patrick behold so i. don't think it is phenomenal news. You know spoiler alert. I don't think it has anything to Jerry. Jones is not going to take a call from Dak Prescott Asian and go. Mahomes, money's going to hang up laughing. They're not the same. He's a very good quarterback. He's a top ten doctoral quarterback, but not the same player net I am so glad she said that because I completely agree with that, take completely agree with it. The very fact that Mahomes is demonstrably.

R. G. contact them for help getting benefits for the veteran the spouse of the better or for both folks. They are there to help you in. Tell them that Carol sent you well today. I wanted to talk about a new you act that was signed into law on December thirty first called bold B. L. D. an acronym. That stands stands for building. Our largest dementia be all day infrastructure for Alzheimer's act bold and I read read about it in the magazine Alzheimer's Today. If you don't get that little magazine it's free. You should google that. I'm not sure exactly what the website is but I know I signed signed up for is a beautiful color magazine think it comes out quarterly lots of good articles to read their. It's free there. You go so check that out so I'm going to read read to you a little bit from that article on. I'm not plagiarizing pretending these are my words but these are actually the worst room that article it sending sending on President. Donald Trump signed the bold act into law on December thirty first two thousand eighteen now the bold AC will deliver one hundred million in dollars over the next five years for the prevention treatment and care of Alzheimer's disease. Do I hear how Alina going on. I mean for Heaven's sakes. Thanks if there's one thing we know the world needs in their arm. Any this certainly is one of them. We've got to do something about this epidemic known as Alzheimer's. There's quoting it says America's Alzheimer's infrastructure is lacking according to two thousand Seventeen Rand Inc study they learned that even if a cure or disease modifying treatment for Alzheimer's was found America's healthcare system is unable able to rapidly deploy it or curate with resulting surge in demand. Let me read that I messed that up even if a cure or disease modifying treatment for Alzheimer's must found America's health care system is unable to rapidly deploy ORC with the resulting surge in demand. If there's one thing you learn listening to my show. I'm very real you know I could have re recorded that made me look better but life is just too real for me ended for you to they go on to say study findings indicate there are too few medical specialists to diagnose. Alzheimer's particularly in the early stages just when a new treatment could prevent the disease's progression to full blown dementia. Additionally researchers found an inadequate number of infusion centers. We're individuals can receive disease modifying treatment and medications now that supposing we had the disease modifying treatments and medications and hopefully one day we will but the boat at is GonNa work towards helping resolve some of those issues in our world enhance resources for state health departments greater help for health and the health and social service professions families and communities well that is what we are here for dementia on a small scale nothing like the ball. Dak Act for sure. I'm pretty sure I don't have one hundred million dollars to work with with met. Be something but reaching out to you in your caregiving journey. Let's talk about what's going going on in your journey is that's why this show is not called. Let's Talk Alzheimer's. Let's talk to manage. It's very personally gets down to the nuts and bolts of what's going on in your day to day world in how I might can help you with that but I can only reach so many people so this Bodak once implemented in a very effective way will reach more people in Hallelujah for that the article says bold also establishes centers of Excellence Excellence in public health practice to provide educational educational information about Alzheimer's brain health as well as promote support resources for individuals with Alzheimer's in their caregivers and again. That is what I I won't be for you. They bullet point the bold act objectives in let me read a few of those is to support early detection diagnosis reduced the risk of avoidable hospitalizations reduce the risk of cognitive decline support care planning and management all of these are good things and it's kind of neat to think that this is one of the few pieces of legislation that was passed by Congress that was bipartisan lied partisan. you know it wasn't just the Republicans that were interested or just the Democrats that are just independence that were interested. Everybody coming together to realize we've got a huge problem. In something has to happen somewhere. Somebody's got to figure out some some ways to handle the the process of finding a cure or developing a vaccine in how to administer it to our country throughout our world carol not just our country but our world is a huge thing I mean I know even with flu shots. I remember when we ran out of flu shots one year and of course that was ear. My husband and I both got the flu boy. Let me tell you that was not fun so there are all kinds of logistics involved in getting vaccine out much less developing being the vaccine and I know that a lot of companies that is what they're working towards. They are not well more and more companies are not working towards curing during Alzheimer's they are working towards preventing Alzheimer's that works for me folks if we can not get Alzheimer's in. We're not curate daily. It can become like other diseases from our past that used to just were horrific like polio. My Mama and her sisters had polio is children. Now there's polio Jio vaccine or measles mumps rubella all these different things that used to be horrific things in our world but now we can vaccinate against them and we don't get them so if we have have a vaccination for Alzheimer's. WHOA WHOA I'd be the first one in line. What about you yeah. I just wish it had happened before. My mom had to leave this world book it didn't but she always said if I can help just one person on their dementia caregiving journey because I've got this disease than it will have been worth did she was a sweet woman hearts with or you know that. I tell you that all the time because well. It's just real very real in my world right now but that's what's going on on to tell you a funny story that happened my daughter and my husband and I taught first grade sunny school some many years ago like probably twenty years ago but there was this time we have a time of prayer. What do you want us to pray about now. You have to know if you're working with a group of children. One of them wants you to pray for their grandma than the next six. Three people will want you to pray for grandma if one of them says pray for my dog in the next rebels say pray for my dog. That's just that goes but this one little kid said I want wants you to pray for. My neighbors and we're like okay. What about your neighbors in he said I don't think they're Christian. I think they might be Republicans. Oh my goodness. You know what it was. All I could do not draw on the floor laughing. Isn't that funny story. You know I don't know what kind the conversations were going on at the kitchen table his house but yet they weren't talking about God. Let me say so. That just made me laugh every time I think what about it makes me giggle. Now Hope it made you giggle to hope your caregiving journeys.

"Manned, of course, if you wanna make sure that you're up to speed with every last nugget of soliver goodness going out to our website sign up for our newsletter of. Of intent we have not sent one of these out in months, but but I have seen suspicion that once we get things going with shirts and a few thing a working on in the laboratory will be sending that out a few times here over the course of the next couple weeks and months, we're getting closer shirt number two, by the way. So we're hoping for late spring early summer rolling everything out with that. Hopefully with our friends at cotton bureau, so tonight show first of all is there any news you want to discuss I would love to talk about the sweetie effect in. Okay. So I sent you this this morning. Okay. Powerpoint leaks from guess, Clemson, this is her wits intention. Yeah. Perfect story for podcast. But okay. So let's back up even more devastating has earned himself a ten year ninety three million dollar. That's the reported new deal that he has earned for himself. And it's hard to argue against the results and to the place to. Which Clemson has climbed in the college football university defending national champions, recruiting like crazy, the raising money like crazy. The enrollment is way up at Clemson like what happens at most big schools when football is you know, in front of millions that there's an excitement about being part of something around the program around the school. So things are very I believe is the word the bullish right now and Clemson football. Yes. So Nick Sabin is no longer the most well paid per year head coach and jimbo's close. But it's it's dabbled Sweeney. And he's making about nine million. When you when you consider all of the base salaries and bonuses and incentive structures about nine little over nine million dollars a year for the next decade. And has I think it's what a two million dollar on top of his normal. Buyout buyout. Yes. He goes Alabama. And that goes down by half a million a year after a couple of years. So that. That is that is the new deal and people were sort of reacting with that's no money to pay the players no money for this. And that got money for that. And what happened was the department went to the Clemson board per saw this on football scoop. I don't know where exactly a broke. So I apologize broke on the athlete. It was on the ethic. Okay. Good to know. Good people over there at the ethnic and PowerPoint slides leaks of the presentation that the department gave the Clemson whatever board of trustees directors. What have you so good? This is perfect for the underlying our work is the Sweeney effect. That is just when revenue for football is up revenue for donations is up enrollment is up and just ratings and everything is it's a nonstop upward trajectory for Clemson. And there's one man and one man only who can be traced back to this is not necessarily. False. But while the Sweeney effect is what it says along the bottom of these slights. I am excited to use this in perpetuity. Yeah. On this podcast when anything goes, right? We're going to attribute it to the Sweeney effect. The other thing that I should add as part of this. And I promise we're going to move on to the actual content of our show this evening you, and I had what I would scribe as a rather productive and fruitful G chat and earlier today because as you know, as many of our listeners know PowerPoint slides look about eighty percent the same there. Few bullet points in their star wipe here. And there about eighty percent the same you've seen on you've seen them. All you can recognize other PowerPoint sue make PowerPoint presentations for your do I eight eight job. Yeah. Yeah. I do how often. Pfefferle often I'd say, oh, man. That's a that's a blind spot for a couple of times. I I don't think I've ever for a serious situation whenever I've had to pitch or present things. It's either I guess in video former I'm just speaking, you know, visual aids for the live show us a different tool, but I guess technically..

"Hundred thirty million dollar deal. Cannella Alvarez had a three hundred sixty five million dollar deal with dissolve on. And the fact that Mike trout smash that as much as he did getting another sixty five million dollars plus on top of that just shows how good he is. This is a deal. That's good for both sides. He gets to be the highest paid athlete ever. The Los Angeles angels gets keep him in their uniform for the rest of his career. Okay. So I think the question a lot of people wonder about because of what was going on with Bryce Harper and his sort of recruitment of Mike trout, what impact might Harper and that whole situation have had on this deal. Not a whole lot trout is almost in a universe of his own. We're talking about a player and no disrespect intended to Bryce Harper. Mike trout's on a completely different level. This might be when it is all said and done the greatest baseball player. We have ever seen through his age twenty six season. He has more wins above replacement than anybody in history. That includes Babe Ruth that includes Ty Cobb that includes Mickey Mantle I could go on and on about all of the great players throughout the course of history. Mike trout has been better than all of them from the start. And so the Los Angeles angels knowing that they have Shohei Ohtani knowing that nineteen year old Joey Dell a star in the making outfielder who's going to be with the team at this point next year. And all likelihood I mean that is quite the outfield to form and quite the core for the angels to have and build around. So the other side of this though, is you look at trout and not to. Cash shade on him at all. But this is a man is only playoffs wants. No. He's only been to the playoffs. Once they've never as as I remember never wanna play off game. I mean, how does this kind of contract hamper their chances to win in the future? Or affect know. I'm not sure that it does. And here's why the angels have a three billion dollar television deal. Local TV over twenty years that is filling their coffers with money. They have stadium..

"Is you have. But I bet it was not a one hundred million dollar mistake. Several weeks ago when we were thinking about going to a hundred million dollars, and we had just kind of announce it to the world. And maybe even after a couple of podcast episode, come Allah. We were like, yeah, we're going to do it one hundred million dollars. I thought well what's gonna actually take to get two hundred million dollars? Like how much do we have to sell? How fast we have to grow? We're going to try to do this by twenty thirty. What does it really mean? As far as growth are we talking about tripling the size of the company every single year doubling the size? And so what I do. I sat down and I created a complex spreadsheet. And in the spreadsheet, I said well at the time where it will million dollars a little bit more now, but then it was one million dollars, and we had to get to one hundred million dollars, and we had eleven years, and I brought that up in two months SO, I figured well. If we increase by this much every single month, and since this recurring revenue issued add on top of itself. So let's say we bring say a thousand dollars in the first month will and the second month we bring in thousand dollars again now up to two thousand dollars the third month we bring in one thousand dollars third time. Now, we have total of three thousand dollars. There's a cumulative effect over time, and we had eleven years times twelve months, and that's too much math for me to do right now. I don't know hundred thirty two that's close. If that, correct. So we had a hundred and thirty two months to actually build up this revenue. So I laid out this big spreadsheet and. And I did that we needed to bring an extra twenty six hundred dollars in new monthly recurring revenue every single week in order to achieve a hundred million dollars at the end of that time period, and I actually publish that information. I think I did a podcast episode about it. And I was very proud of myself or calculating that. A some point. I went back, and I looked at it. And I started to kind of question the logic. And I realized I had made a mistake. I had made a big mistake. What I was doing was always adding up all of the money that we would have earned between then and twenty thirty so summing it all up equal one hundred million dollars. That's a lot different than earning. One hundred million dollars in your twenty thirty which is really the goal. The goal is not to earn one hundred million dollars in the next eleven or twelve years. Then there's a big difference. Matter of fact, in order to earn a hundred million dollars over the next eleven years. What that means is into thirty will be an eighteen million dollar company. So think about it this way say like a million dollars in two thousand eighteen two million two thousand nineteen four million two. Thousand twenty cetera Oli up to twenty thirty eighteen million dollars. When you add all that up for every single year. That was one hundred million dollars was the answer. I got and it was wrong. It was a big hundred million dollar mistake. When I realized that and recalculated the numbers were huge. It was something like there was so big that even save the file it was like fifty five thousand dollars a week in revenue or maybe per month. It was a big big way bigger number than we could achieve saw realize that model was wrong. I had made a huge mistake would also realize that is going to be very difficult for us to grow by having a linear amount of new revenue coming in every single week or month. The reality is there's going to be stacking affect if we bring in twenty five hundred dollars per week in new month recurring revenue which is about what we're doing right now that won't be acceptable in five years in five years, and he's be ten or fifteen or twenty thousand a week. The numbers all the numbers are going to get bigger, including how much we bring in. There's also going to be an inorganic component buying companies and foreign them into digital. This is way more complicated of a situation than I originally suspected. It's not gonna be just bringing the same on of money every single week for the next eleven years way, more complicated. I made a huge mistake. I don't know what the answer is yet. But I know that it's not a steady stream of income is going to vary over the years. Thank you for listening. I hope you heard something you can implement in your
