This is the financial exchange with the very Armstrong and chunks of you're exclusive look at business and financial news affecting your you've seen the new world. Stay informed and today about economic and market trends plus get breaking business news. And the financial exchange with the very Armstrong and shocks. I was. Sure this morning at 5 AM that he jays would be our lead story wise we'll BJ's is going public. And today's the day it's a big day for BJ's to be paid for their employees and their customers. But it's not our an ambulance story in fact our number one story is another New England based company. That you never heard. Paul Hill pack. They are being acquired by Amazon in the air ship sending shares of companies that Walgreen. And Rite Aid and CBS which is a local New England company. Really so talk about that as our primary story and then our big question of the day is. Have we reached peak real estate prices hi everybody it's very Armstrong and Peter Howe with you here. It's a Thursday and you know Peter we've already gone through our stack of stories at 9 AM. In and I walked in and said hey we have a new lead story in that Amazon. Big time getting into the drugstore business. Well and CVS Rite Aid. Walgreens is giving. Hammered down you know on 9% 10%. Since the market open does a terrific company founded in some rural Massachusetts by two young Smart kids yet. Ever people who are living with chronic conditions where you're taking twenty or thirty pills a day it's a fantastic service you get this. Stripped of prepackaged medication and it says take this on Thursday at 10 AM thing. In his company's still pack pill pack. And cut a wonderful and still operated under that grander fame is on a full additionally if they left whole foods alone as a grants of maybe they'll leave it alone is Syria as a separate. So built the way it would work been like if you're on medicine they eat your your to your point you're taking multiple medications per day. It in arrives all prepackaged is that the idea. Exactly the date and time labeled for when you take this when you take that you you obviously know if you miss the medication yell as you'll see you know what time it is an old shooter action taken at a CF seven a M tonight you'd just have to say. Your phone at certain time okay take this medication and a 8:8 AM another medication at noon. That's however to call in from interviews. I do but interviews in the morning before come on air Niles I set my alarm on my phone so it seemed. Premise is still some personal responsibility. But you get everything delivered in one. Sleeve I guess in you know what you have to take for the day. Right you poppy you know exactly when you get a pop out what from the OPEC so it's you know it's a life changing thing and you think about it. Would Amazon and just their ability to take or get it out and this marketed leverage it and you know there there are. Who literally tens of millions of people who could benefit from us. Now they you know beat. Well evidently leaders fear that it's going to be quite successful otherwise CB Asher wouldn't be down six dollars and fifty cents. One it hold but to deal making my in that sector with the Walgreens CVS skating and health insurance. It all kind of in hindsight now makes a whole lot more sense that they've put Wal-Mart. We understand. Took a look at OPEC was prepared to buy them then clearly. CBS. Rite Aid Walgreens the whole sector knows that went like eight. Bought them just take them away. Right why wouldn't CBS have bought Kilpatrick and about paid for measly. Just to do take them away from him this. Then lets them so they left their flank exposed to well and it's also a it's a bit of. A you wanted to disrupt your own business because you know till Backus is obviously a threat to the CBS. You know I'll. Way of doing things recommit to the stored you pick up your medication and oh by the way you buy you know shampoo and five other things while you're there. But you're exactly right that's CBS may well look back and think geez. If this if these guys are coming in need or want to maybe we should buy them so we are eating arrow much. The CBS's doings you know delivery from local stores now and eat yeah they're they're finally waking up but. You know I thought Wal-Mart was slowed the draw. CBS's even worse unit terms of responding to the Amazon threat the advocate speedily Amazon won't do well Amazon is doing. Amazon getting into the drug business. BJ's going public. What time they're gonna go me even her. It is the time of the IPO I know the price and I get CNET. Can be somewhere around 1517 bucks a share. I don't know if you remember they used to be public. Yet classic a situation which is over and over him with the these companies that get. Taken private. Fixed up and actually also loaded up with a debt to a greater extent than. Taken back out to the public. IC. Enough. Things about this that I need. I would think twice about in getting into this deal so I'm calling your broker to buy shares today even after the IPO the private equity guys still owns 69%. Of the company and you know herb. They paid themselves two billion dollars in dividends since 2011. And it looks like if you buy into the night ago. It's not clear that you ever get paid any dividend rate you know years year by in this is hoping that the share price goes up that that concept of shopping. Gains in popular correct correct yeah but IE I don't like. Being in in a stock we're the private equity guys on 69% of it in a call on the shots and in themselves instead of pain me would you prefer as a consumer. The fuse pins compared cost code to be to have a preference you know I am I am not a member of either we do ha. We are. That's an American. Don't tell don't tell cost Goebel we have a friend whose card we borrow once a year and go up Costco in Waltham Massachusetts load up for a big Christmas party that we put on and you know we also used that as the time we buy. 48 rolls of paper tale yeah etc. But you know three kids grow up out of the house. I need to be eating less food them more food and between. Costco and BJ's CA I AM I'm homework you know affected. BJ's. Is based in Framingham room would love deceive them. Be very successful. I don't get the sense that there's necessarily. It's or is it clear in your mind when the real differences are in the value proposition between just programmes that they have inside I think you know the egg prices are pretty similar. You know BJ's has Errol brain and their Wellesley farm products and things like that and Oscar's got their own brains I think it remarkably some Costco does the Kirkland. Yeah yeah cost does. Pretty darn good private label line that are from the Costco members brought to the Kirkland dive tried appeared to recession period. Surprisingly you drink Costco beer Kirkland no I've had I don't go out trinkets I've had to cull animals like it is pretty good for Kirkland in. And all of sudden your your status is a beer connoisseur or has declined to where I try every you know all Beers. Felt any title I'm for a nice MacWorld group let's let's follow this and see if we get a price on it later in the show has not gone public. As of yet but it is going public today and I think a lot of people will be buying into. What are you what are you telling your clients well have you I'm not buying it he he's the AI I'm staying away from retail in general. Tea bison on our investment committee in. You know every time he touched on retail I get burned by staples and since then. And I went to the game committee and said sell when there be when news first announced the Office Depot merger to get rid of it. And it didn't want to they kept it in some but then we we didn't do well this stock anyway that's a story for another day. Let's talk about mortgage applications. There was there were 12%. Fewer applications. For mortgages. Peter the same week compared to a year ago. Yeah and seasonally adjusted. We 5%. We've total mortgage applications and what is weird situation we're it's kind of like Yogi Berra what do housing got so expensive nobody bonded damning portrait. And it seems like. My wife and I would poster kids out of the house have sort of toyed with the idea of selling our house big enough for three kids via movement someplace mark you don't look around. It's just. We did the same thing we we actually listener house for sale in my big fears that it actually sells. There's nothing to buy. Yeah you know they can't that's the the week where would lead to big question is like where would we move so we're almost a free dinner how my itself fortunately it's not selling so. And not to worry about it but there's a perspective. That out there that we've hit peak prices and pretty bright guy John Walton. Suggesting that prices. Have have peaked out. Chief economist Richard booty saying the prices of a doubt she chief economist David Burson if it prices have peaked out. I'm not sure that I concur simply because in maybe it's because were where we live but I don't see a massive amount of construction. And that's usually Peter if you think back even to in New England. In 20056. And seven there were some signs that you know the housing market. Had kind of gotten top remember our old friend Brian Cox yes he worked for company called countrywide mortgage and he was showing the not with he just kind of what was going on in the mortgage business exit point. You know easy money you remember the beast called ninja loans and news and alone you could get from a mortgage broker not a bank necessarily. We didn't have to demonstrate any income. He didn't have to prove he had a job. And you do enough proof they had any NASA's Compton in new Angel no no income no job no assets and they give you gore did. And a half a million bucks to buy a house liar loans that that that's that's what I said. Played this the zoom topic I don't see anything. But if you talked to Tucker who's trying to buy a house. He'd tell you that they torture him in terms of going out trying to buy house get credit Borg you know to get a more just it's very difficult to write a news. It is tough vote no no easy money out there isn't no. No no no. Any other variable that I don't see addressed in this which is absolutely factor in Greater Boston is Asian buyers. Specifically Chinese buyers yell coming at them and putting down huge amounts of cash. For real estate you know you look at Canada. You know Vancouver you know this city that has imposed a big. Tax on foreign buyers that. Dynamic doesn't seem to be going away in that does seem to have particularly Lexington Brookline Newton and you know some of the more upscale suburbs around Boston it's absolutely dynamic that is keeping. Housing prices insanely high so what is your perspective on ED think we've reached the peak for house in terms of pricing it feels to me. Like were settling in to. A lot of people like Mike mean my wife and me feeling stock the and that. You it be wonderful. The amid the the great thing would be if we can all seller houses in new England and moved to Tulsa Oklahoma our whale Jefferson City, Missouri we would live like canes you know we would get better houses for supporters it's definitely would be in Oklahoma exactly that's the that's that's the downside or India and tornadoes in Indiana with Mike. You. You have to go that fared just look at the Carolinas it's cheaper go to New London, Connecticut never looked at prices down there not advocates to my house in New London, Connecticut for two underground.

There's a whole foods on the way so it was the first day in New England anyway. Where you had in this line in the special deals in the pricing in an exciting what do you think. I I'd light the the whole foods shopping experience except for when you get to the cashier right date in you look at home or wouldn't do spectrum to book fifty electoral items. But fifty bucks a bag I'll tell you what's at fifty bucks a bag but hey it's it's changing. EE I would win in that for the things that I bought rate. Beat the produce a predominately we eat pretty healthy so produce a protein. Prices were packed it in with they do is the of these blue flags that say Amazon prime pricing and so used to pay special price for certain seafood at the as a prime number as the prime members yet. And you when you check out you have to have the whole food wrap on your file America and there's this little cues that shows. And you check out using that ended discounts are applied some of the discounts or anywhere from 1025%. 99 on the apt you have to select the items at your purchasing that are on sale and then you'd scan that at. The cashier all you do or you put the items in your cart yet. And then when you get to the cashier east's. And it I'm a prime member that's and they scan your full and and they applied those discounts got like with with Shaw's right in a cart in your Shaw's member body shop via via the the lot of the stores do that. But it made the pricing because he used to be you'd Joaquin in. You know like a piece of swordfish was 24 bucks a pound right well not paid twenty gala to pound purse or if it was not. But EP the prices that are already come down fairly substantially and now these discounts they're quite competitive. The the price so you get prime you get if something's on sale prime you got another 10%. From the sale price ten to 25 it says right on the fly as to whether it's ten or twenty and then if you have that Amazon prime credit card rate which is what you do I do right. You get an additional 5% on your entire order even the stuff that wasn't discount. So we're after re name it partial pay check you out yeah eight it's not as bad.

Time now for Wall Street watch a look at the market's performance so far today until Berrian jug right here on the financial exchange radio network. The Dow's off 46 point that BJ shares are up 22%. We've got a three dollar rally. In the price of BJ shares are trading at twenty dollars and 77 cents per share Peter. A little bit of a first date pop on and on that stock you and I. I should apologize I misspoke when I sit framing and they used to be framing him now west Borough Massachusetts in when I still think of is the New England electric system building there. A number nine. I actually. In my Bittermann not when it comes to first a pops without IPOs that I look at those and XA you know your investment bankers the tree view because and they showed a price the stock higher out of the gate. You'd get more money coming in the door. He in my mind the optimum. First day pop for an IPO is zero dollars because you priced to perfection. Well now but it like I'll look at this one. You know where I would consider buying BJ's is. Maybe six to nine months from now when things have settled down. And because right now what happens is all the insiders are locked up they can't sell. Right near and dear Dave this period of time where they're not allowed to sell. And there's a lot of propping up if you don't realize that in the background that goes on but in the bankers if they don't like the way the IP is going it is like today. Big committed by shares in order to prop up the price so. I tests on a company like this. I I wouldn't touch on and an IPO day. I'd look at this company will I'll keep an eye out just because it's a local company we re in we tend to follow our our local doing the company's. And I'd be curious to see what it's trading for in you know six months out. And I just always worry any company like diabetes via Amazon affect them you know Amazon contaminant. Squishy like a bug ten different ways yeah that your candlelight UA. Other issue that we should talk about his oil I mean oil's gone from 65 dollars a barrel to 7355. In a hurry.

Foreign buyers and a foreign buyers that'll that's all propping up list I was shocked to see. Lists valuation. They are now valued at fifteen billion dollars if. Mean billion dollars big Fidelity Investments has put 800 million dollars of in the left and so. Valuation it was seven point five billion in in April 2017. It's gone up and hurry to a fifteen point one it's still. If you look at it by actual business yeah they're doing about 15 as much business as Hoover but. Domestically they've got 35%. NIC. More more people who are consciously choosing left don't like Hoover don't like the corporate reputation. Don't like is that the. Recent ABC I'd do it because of price saints with its cheaper yes. They add an elderly people. Thought I had a feeling a lot of people don't know that it just resort to what they're used to with Gruber. And I used what 4000 Allison was significantly cheaper and there are other guys who were dead Hoover's and they paid more than it it's my daughter same experience told me that it was cheaper and sights set of outright comeback from the airport a few times. Then again if it wasn't cheaper that is like quite a bit cheaper surprised what you see some people have both stickers on their car. Oh yeah they all drive it if he talked and need to drivers they they're from. It just it's a how much lesser they making when the bride comes to lift. Will they said if you talk to the drivers they said they prefer to take the if they have a choice to take the lift ride over the uber right causing use. Apparently get a little bit better compensation. From lift the that you from. Even though you paid you pay less but they get more that's what they said. I don't know may implicate the staff changes and they have some algorithms and and it's is servers and yes it is I I don't know with. Truth is I'm just telling with the guys have have told me running that car Boeing this is exciting.

You can protect assets from future divorces of your children and and not even just divorces. Any creditor can think of a financial problems don't wanna help people limited to just divorce although I can tell you divorces is one of them. Bigger concern more commonly people half again more common and so yes I mean the way you do it is what the language or put in the trust as you simply allow. The children to service trustee. So they're doing everything like it's their own. Their own asset buying selling it Sandra but they appoint an independent trustee. Who decides when distributions can come out to the child if anyone at their siblings know they should be an accountant or an attorney and they can remove and replace. Hold it really the lost they don't get stuck with a you know some crazy attorney that's in there that that doesn't wanna give up assets.

So he can arrange ladies and I picked up a nice cup last night. That day. You know got their phone number for played it for played it mango he would ever play dates but of course and a member played it's it's it's fun. So let's talk about the Supreme Court ruling this video digress to something much less important immigrant. Yet this. I he. Foresee a bit of a stampede five million government workers in twenty states pretty much all New England base getting any state that doesn't a right to work. Lies you now are allowed to opt out of being in the union and paying. So called agency fees so far cop. And you feel like you wanna not be a member of the union. That there are a lot of top aidid do you know many cops I know him from hockey. It is like if you are copy have to play hockey and these guys hate their unions absolutely like the guys I know anyway. The date they're gonna jump out of the union stances they can shake a stick yeah I think it's going to be. Up up pretty crushing blow for organized labor and Chris there is even Franklin Roosevelt. Very good liberal Democrat. He drew a line at saying. Public employee should not be members unions and you see this dynamic we're. You know the unions are big and rich and strong donate to legislators who then reward them with pay raises in. And they've turned this pay raises into electing more legislators who will raise their pay and benefit pensions and benefits and everything. As much as they can. About the private sector what's the impact going to be on the carpenters union electricians union the truck drivers in teamster strictly so that this record the Janice rulings strictly applies to government and a public sector employees. And you know that's and in the latest number but the house this movement this must be good for us straight it like unite you know work for the got me away for him. No okay so. You wheat we as a taxpayer don't we benefit from this rule. Ultimately. I think he can make the case yes is this the death is a spell the end of public pensions to. It is another blow towards happy it's good buddy the death row but the you have seen states like California New Jersey that if you it has been to this ruling coming down yet and have taken. Preemptive steps to make it easier for. Unions to organize public sector workers and ultimately. At the end of the day if if this turns up the heat I'd unions to make sure like your conference you don't make sure that their members feel like they're getting value from the union only don't bet that's the big gripe they have. You know they'll say well you know I got. Again in a beef with my sergeant in the union didn't back me up at all had a civil complaint to the union didn't ya that's the beef. It is not so much the wages and benefits it's the nobody's got my back well and I think in purple states. State take Illinois you know you go to downstate Illinois. I would bet that there are a lot of prompt voters were members of unions and are very unhappy with the unions giving money to Liberal Democrats. And you know people vote with their feet it. It'll be inching to see with the long term effective where I'm hoping it has. An impact is on the east state pensions and and you look at the I think the number now. The this is goalie you know you know I'll be retired and moved out of state by the time it hits but. Tucker your generation is saddled. With debt you can genetic you looking at. Rhode Island screen there's not that you you look at some of the state certainly that remains in Gucci mane is the loans stayed in doing that's a pretty good shape for their public pensions. But across the country and across New England. Missed that pension plans are grossly underfunded so when you're looking to buy a house Tucker and you see all that the property taxes or 4800. I wouldn't count on. Those counts I think the towns are after it property taxes. Well or even you don't resort to. Essentially bankruptcies you know Detroit. And you know you you'll see either better. City files. Now central falls Rhode Rhode Island gathered there are jurisdictions that are just getting crushed by those pension liabilities and you know baked the it is simply impossible for them to pay out the benefits that they have promised their teachers cops yeah firefighters in the future and so that's gonna give. Now we've just a matter of when that hits it's probably a day when it will be the next recession. He get a a good recession where the stock market goes down 30%.

Are we at peak housing and housing prices got so high that they can only go down from here and talk about it. Amazon. Has plans to start up the delivery service for its own packages. But they want you to be the employer. And third we're talk about Disney's purchase of box looks like the government has approved hi everybody it's very in Peter Howe with you here it's a Thursday.

Tape an aspirin to take an aspirin to talk about housing. The way he gears speculation a lot of economist coming out saying yeah this is it we that the peace prize. Seems hard to make that call to me because it's so dependent on and we get this roaring economy you know the potential I think we're gonna yuck about oil at this hour. But to have that we've been experiencing 5%. GDP growth in this past quarter which we haven't seen for. I mean once in 2014 coming out of the recession but. It I look all around new England and it doesn't feel like anything's going down yet it feels like it's very hard to find. House inventories low. You're the talk to the guys at the Warren group right in there today inventories just terrible yeah I've never seen and you see I love the story out of Melrose Massachusetts. A house that is a burned up shell and selling for 650000. Dollars now because summoning commentary Diana put up it's a big two family house so it's a link to sell. Yeah but but you look at the house three quarters of the house. Cordoba house is gone and the rest of the house's. Toward. You see a lot of knockdowns in your community where people buy the house they knock it down and then put up of the mansion yes and that we have well where we live in Newton we have one right behind this priest to look at her bedroom window wooden beautiful maple trees that would turn nice colors in October now we look at it giant. Ugly how's it. Used to be aired neighbor's house. That's the way it works. Amazon plans a startup delivery service for its own packages for years I've wondered I said the one thing that really could bring down Amazon. Would be labor unions and I thought that I thought. Drivers and I think or the hub labor union issues would be in the driver's area. And in the warehouses great caddie keep the unions out of those warehouses. If there's going to be tough. Well and even you know you turn over last mile delivery to UPS unionized. Or USPS unionized and you know labor unrest that those. Could really be a stranglehold for in the sense of history to crest on the New York Times today. Really interesting tenth it's and it's essentially a delivery franchise or minimum investment of 101000 dollars you. Start your own business. Delivering and the impact it is right and to me it's a fascinating. Plea by Amos and mr. hedge. The risk of outsourcing delivery. Well and what they're doing though is there supplying the trucks they're supplying the uniforms so these are people that are gonna look like Amazon employees rate that they're doing that last mile delivery. But in fact they're going to be my employees right I can I could. Pony up ten grand to become the franchise owner and and you know go through the training and and do it actually I sent this story to one of my sons because it's actually not a bad business opportunity. Yeah offer for an entrepreneurial person if he scratched together 101000 or borrow it from year old man right. It's it might not be a bad way to it to bring Canada's the they have a guy that's doing it may be to test handed out in Colorado. Guys duties make it 300 grand a year. You know I would bet that to meat that's that's a motivating factor I think people are gonna participate. What and which oversees European Amazon flax. Some people making eighteen to 25 bucks an hour to deliver practice from their own vehicle might say these guys. In all around Newton Brookline Boston. Also something called Amazon truck one of our listeners effective tax that in about it. He doesn't and it's like he just you if they have you know some of the big packages that you need delivered. If you have a truck if you do go do it makes a decent money. When then you bus to get president you know who seen that Amazon is single handedly drive in the US Postal Service in two. Bankruptcy so with the salute interest and wait for Jeff pesos to maybe talk to the president a little bit. Well I'd better off its stock units of the president's so much is talking to the unions I I think need the unions were probably licking their chops right think and is he just had the UPS number they just settled. With the Teamsters whose last week ID they went into long term deal with the Teamsters. I I think the unions over I I still maintain. That the issue that can cause Amazon problems that are already did in Germany. Amazon has brought to their knees two years ago in Germany unions in Germany are much stronger. And they are in the United States capsule and the day run that country largely. They haven't been able to figure out how to get in to Amazon yet. And this is a move on the part of Amazon to keep the unions out further because it's not going to be Amazon employing all these drivers it's gonna be. The buried Peter show rightly indicated it could be individual guys that are due and it if you have a Nazi era a 55 year old laid off executive. A good executive skills for you know how to hire people you're good manager people and have 101000 bucks in the bank. I'm sure you wouldn't take it a shot at this rather than working for some big company and I don't know.

Let's talk about the United States approving Disney's purchase a fox entertainment assets they may have approved it but I'm not sure this is the last bit. With the condition that Disney has to divest the regional sports networks of fox who since I was sitting on ESPN and justices went too much concentration. I don't know if we've reached the end of the Comcast vs Disney after NASA finally likes it I feel like you know yours is seen in the while Wall Street Journal.

Yeah we're not battling to the money because they don't have the money and Comcast Nikkei eased their stock is your stocks come weighed down in price. So if there's another offer from Comcast. I think fox has to look at it rather do obviously. Because they're gonna say while you if they really and come up with the money I don't think and I also don't think fox wants to sell the cup I think fox wants to sell this thing to do is. Here we read that the Wall Street Journal last week and kind of have an eye popping numbers contest one of was putting up 65 offering 65 billion. Four fox it would be on track to go to a 170.

Vote your conscience and Aaron just vote go to financial exchange show does come in castaway. Diabetes has reached epidemic. Proportions. And here's an experimental program going on in Pennsylvania called fresh food pharmacy program. And we're gonna talk to make Terrelle from CNBC about that program I'm a cereal. Let's talk about fresh food pharmacy how does the program work and what's involved. There really interesting way of trying to tackle diabetes which. Of course that they huge problem and one that beat it about treating a lot of medicine right now. Other medicines can help clearly more and more people are being diagnosed with diabetes and the problem that the growing. I heard about a program that Geithner helped the and it Pennsylvania is doing. Eating food and support education and and just making sure that their patience hat act that it these things. I've been basically how it works is they and parole patients with type two diabetes. And who have food security eating not clear where their next meal might come round or by the end of the week. They're worried about ready at a foods and with a low income population. And then he spoke and roll and they go through a lot of education about it. Healthier eating and managing diabetes. And then each week they come cute their health matter and they work with teachers net. And dietitians. That week food and they get. Ten free meals for themselves and whoever is that in the event in their house all this healthy nutritious food. And then help them live healthier lifestyle they need and pretty incredible result. OK so let's go through it again fifteen hours of education right just teaching them about nutrition. Followed up with ten freeing nutritious meals for them and anybody else that they got a couple kids. And what is comprised in these meals what do these meals consist. A lot of pressure that eaten fruit apple greens. Healthy dairy and meat. And at that we talked with when he sent to is doing at Pennsylvania and it's bad at it a lot of back to before. Yup it wouldn't buy a fresh fruit because it's a lot more expensive and and other things that I'm not used to respect. That he get it's the elephant and that the ten meals a week so two meals a day I think we none correspondent based in a program that pretty well. So what would the results at the patient level if you will did you. Come back in line with what happened. Yeah all of these president fund he can be talked with that Rita Kirk and eat grant. Eight grandchildren and three of them went with her anything that weight loss is not the main goal of the program but of course that happened out there a lot of folks. He lost 45 pound. On the program. She's been doing for out of the year. And her 81 Elop. Dropped significantly after blood sugar level and they think those are not a typical result of that program. How about from the health insurance company guy singers perspective he had they been able to monetize this at all because there. Their idea was pay let's let let's do this in order to cut back on the cost of health care that we're providing to our our customers. GAAP. It cost about 2400 dollars repeats and work per year. And they ate so far they have eight at about 3070 secure on their health plan. And that their data show that the cost for those pizza dropped by eighty ports and shipments average of 240000. Dollars per member per year. The 40000 dollars per member per year that that they're pretty ethnic and financial results the buyout. I would think it. You know Kaiser in blue cross blue shield and partners say I I would think this would be something that would spread like wildfire throughout the country. Yeah I yeah. Though it. I think it says they've gotten a lot incoming. Question that how to replicate this program motivated now they're trying to expand that. It's a really interesting way of going after prevention and eating things that we don't know about rape are predominately to be healthier exercising more but we have to eat a little more support to be able to do it and answered back really can work. He mentioned something in your article called Berry after surgery in that a lot of type two. Diabetes. Patients go through very after surgery what the in what is that should restricting how much you can meet. Yeah have very ethnic surgery on it there obviously a surgical approach on cute. Are we ought not and they're very different procedure that you can do you that potentially out and it it means restricting. That the capacity of your Hispanic. Until it can be a pretty major surgery to go through and can have real except for folks not but. And people say if you could try something like that first and it might work for you could be early adoption. It's pretty dangerous isn't very after surgery. I I have to get that eight on our he didn't. But I'm going to. It would make thank you for our for writing articles great and I appreciate your coming on the show with a per share. I think Tucker it was geriatrics surgery that almost killed Charlie Weis memory the you coach for the talk turn it has. Yeah a lot of people have had bad results admitted it's it does miracles for people but it also. You know stapling half your stomach closed in just think about it you know it's that the wave it's a natural gas. Another thing you might wanna do if you suffer from diabetes and many of your book to read but need to book tied it two years what an argument to. Endorsements for books progressed one is called the China study. It's all about aids begin died and I tried it that I've problems like meat too much. And the other one is fast diet CI I don't know if you're diabetic if you can fast I don't think he can so I don't know Fowler Amanda. Not not reckon I'll of people that detritus that just as you want improve your died at the China studies could for diabetics. OPEC is there needs be they cite cases where. Going to be in diet. Passes in limited cured diabetes. Both one and two which you know mind boggling. The fast diet there's actually another story but that just the of the dad did we do build that into the stack about. The fasting diet and in people's experiencing miraculously loss from her through fast but that that's a one day a week. Well no the the that for weight loss what you wanna do is two days a week where he only five count 500 calories a day. Not a week you loose it's just unbelievable. That bet. Does this study sites. The book is called the fast diet that's when I read my wife and I passed we do the one day a week fast. Kid has looked great I'm envious my wife looks great place though among. A minority that's I don't do team. North Korea is rapidly. Upgrading their nuclear site. I've got an act that act I act that this is so all done I let the president had already won the Nobel Prize for this but a shocking shocking bit. The North Korean regime is lying and not doing what it said it would do. Is this firm called 38 north it's in North Korea focused web site even go to 38 north. And they. It published by the Stimson Center a Washington found that Pyongyang in recent weeks appears to have modified the cooling system of its plutonium production reactor. And directed a new building. Near the cooling tower new construction could also be observed at the sites experimental light water reactor to the root. According to the report. President trump is not going to be happy those idiots and active true. I continue to worry that you know despite the happy time earlier this month this. Winds up with the US air force taken out big chunks of North Korea it just doesn't may be the way past and that the I. I don't think I think what the president did here was said look if you wanna play nice will play nice and give me a chance to play nice in in these are terms and this is what's gonna happen. And I don't think he's gonna say I think he's just gonna go to Mattis and say okay. They didn't adhere to what we agree to and some morning we're gonna wake up and north Koreans can be turned into parking. You know they they that's just. They're kind of guy I think we have been at the unfortunate part about that is more than a million people. And the super fortunate part is how close soul is to the border and a lot of movies consoles sold and even can be you know in the time that the US. Would be attacking North Korea humanity image that marker can inflict on South Korea just with. A billion people to to the artillery and it's a million people die if if we. If we do what needs to be done. And 40000 boom of the Americans because that's how many troops we have in in South Korea so.

Waiters can't afford to live in San Francisco swift and we have on the line with us Emily badger from the New York Times who has the story about. Upscale self serve restaurants where it's. And we sounds like out of necessity they simply. Can't get people who can afford to live in San Francisco and work on a waiter salary. Yeah and they. Think the restaurant that in some way is kind is as broke as the model that they're working with Affleck Coldplay or even for the current account scale only factored restaurant. Larry you know you walk up your honor he. Interact with them when I read security iPad. You place your order and then you can it go out to be prepared for you. You know that the carpet we're all familiar with that it lowered down at the same racked up and left and it is about what's happening here is that the go at that. You know a lot of reference there to come out of I'm not. At that I banging like aspirations are picking up the model and the they're using it in a context that he hasn't really been you've been there or would it. He had pared their their thing it fairly but it you know it's you know you might hey. 1618 when he dollar a bunch of these places but if they're serving at you without the benefit what app because. You know they're basically arguing which one afford to hire waiters we think he trained diner. He would be willing to eat at a night they get yelled while doing a lot of the work and. So you take a look at a Greek restaurant called soup line. We're you pick your own table you pour your warm water glass. You've got to the countered get another glass of wine. This mission numbered that it's a forty seat restaurant but it's now cranking out 900 meals a day. Yeah yeah I mean that. Pact that fame made it worry if it it was traditional type out restaurant. You know my eight to be able to that are. 200 meals the day you know if it repeating that it it's typical lunch service and then there are as you know maybe a repeating it. You know to create the diners really at dinner time. Though is how it's able to do that much much larger number. You know part of an impact turner they're as turn the people that are much much faster than typical urban. So with the papal that you have they're getting a lot more diners in and out there. But the other part of it is back there hasn't been the model of what they're getting there he can do is cute taking out. And it happened since then the lovely bit limited amount that they only prepare a small number of things that they tried to eat very well. And IA unit in the back of that in all of this in the secretary equally easily beat coded threat they kept it. And I don't know about half of those 900 healed but the 140 restaurant. Are being eaten by people who are actually eating in Pakistan after you know their people who watch it. Area out. Or it's a tremendous amount. A delivery that's happening after the a lot of other cities that would at but it explosion of delivery service that there will. You know bring it here how from wherever you like it is out. A big part of the expect that the model has the with the fact that there you know Natalie you're not providing all purpose the diner in the restaurant but they're not even really serving more than half of their consumers because the people are never even without an error on a. And you also have amazing numbered here dude really brings home. How expensive Steve Disco is getting him you know Boston very much one the same lines. Restaurant called charting the arrow where and in 1997. 27% of her of the cost for labor that's now up to 43%. Of the budget and that just seems. At some point unsustainable trees. Certainly let you know. That yet entered and made. They expect and what I mean where that this saw had it from the standpoint. Change at a record by Scott. If they completely inappropriate because the numbers basically mean that. Her profit margin has gone. In the B 15% down to less than I'd. And you've been agreed to play when your labor costs are increasing link between that. You know that when there's really only so much that you can use cute trim other budget. I am so you know he's still need to have people in the kitchen preparing their if you can't get it if you're cooked lunch at your dish washers that you said. Here but it upscale restaurant like that. You can hit Aaron you know trying to decide menus that let the labor intensive and the kitchens that you know how it is the last. Empty knife fork involved. You know might as well a little bit on labor costs that way. That you could I as an important part of real surprise there. Machines and other occupant that the city and that's really not as effective as strategy is people would get as. I you know I think a lot of people are it was under the current and able labor cost but I'm not the art what made things happen that pop up on Amber's. But the complete that are really quite and even though they're a tremendous amount of wealth sitting in the community and I bought an infant go. He can't even really wealthy people look at a menu and say you know I would have been fifteen dollars on an apple and why would I pay twenty dollars for hamburger you know that maybe. What the rest fantastic argue in order to make it higher place I mean holy Bible. By consumers and look at numbers like that and say you know. That the extent sent by it is making my own hamburger home at this price point. So yeah does it and make it limited in the strategy that they would like to try to compensate for the writing an apartment basically in either hadn't had a that they feel unstable a lot of structure. And we badger from the New York Times Tagamet and Cisco restaurants putting diners to work it's a great story in and we thank you for sharing the story behind the story with us. And Iraq. Naturally do that. You know and if I'm gonna go out to a restaurant idol that you know when it let's accent the wash that system and the like you know. Although would I do like about it reminds me of there's a great place in Newton called form real which is wonderful Greek food and it's it definitely is an upscale counters service. Place and I eat you know it's it's a treat to you know go there and it's definitely take steps up. They gonna jar by the cash register so why not like it's a table service we took in 20% exactly as agency you know are the prices. There. I would describe it is premium priced it's kind of a twenty dollar dinner the twelve dollar lunch now companies. But I think it's. I I see this really potentially taking life and you know moving up the chain from house of pizza to more more. Types of places where you know. Especially as hard as it is to find and routine waiters and waitresses these days ago. All current trivia question was which president appointed Anthony Kennedy to serve on the Supreme Court correct answer was Ronald Reagan he.
