We're throwing down Thursday as we discuss why Carvana's earnings surprised the market yesterday. We're also talking about how more and more Dealers are using TikTok in their stores, as well as a new campaign by Coke that puts the power of the brand in consumers' hands by leveraging AI.  Yesterday, Carvana announced a much smaller core loss than most expected saying they are looking at a Q1 loss of $50-100 million. A year earlier the loss was $348m.  The announcement sent shares north to almost 30% before they came back down to close the day still up 12% The company credited the better than expected performance to aggressive cost cutting measures implemented over the past yearIn a regulatory filing, Carvana estimated Q1 sales will be between 76,000 and 79,000 units. Carvana sold 105,185 vehicles in the year-earlier period and it sold 86,977 in the Q4  2022.Carvana attributed the drop to higher interest rates, lower inventory size, lower advertising expenses and focus on its profitability initiatives.More and more Dealers and their employees are taking to Tiktok to pull the curtain back on the buying process and letting some secrets out in the process.Many of the most popular videos discuss hidden fees and explain how some dealers might use scarcity tactics to sell cars"TikTok has actually produced more sales, more calls, more immediate business than any of the others," said Jesse Cannon-Wallace, a salesperson at Mercedes Benz Atlanta Northeast in Duluth, Georgia, who has 121,100 TikTok followers.Tito Suave, a salesperson at Gettel Nissan in Sarasota, Florida with 548,300 TikTok followers, posts videos sharing word tracks some dealers use to try to pressure you into buying a car.In addition to the sharing, they also use the platform for walkarounds and educationsCoca-Cola has launched an AI platform, "Create Real Magic," which combines OpenAI's GPT-4 and DALL-E technologies that offers consumers in select markets access to Coke-branded elements for use in AI-powered art. The artists have the chance to submit work for digital billboards that could be featured in New York City and London. According to Coke "Create Real Magic" aims to democratize both Coke's brand iconography and "highest-profile advertising assets," with a focus on testing and scaling AI technology quickly.Get the Daily Push Back email at https://www.asotu.com/ JOIN the conversation on LinkedIn at: https://www.linkedin.com/company/asotu/ Read our most recent email at: https://www.asotu.com/media/push-back-email Share your positive dealer stories: https://www.asotu.com/positivity ASOTU Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/automotivestateoftheunion

Dominick Guarino from NCI joins the podcast to talk about the High-Performance HVAC Summit, an upcoming event hosted by NCI from April 17–20. The National Comfort Institute (NCI) is a training organization that helps technicians learn crucial skills and succeed through high-performance contracting. High-performance contracting is based on the mindset of “don't just promise performance; prove it.” To maximize technicians' potential, NCI teaches technicians how to test equipment properly and monetize their skills. Techs can then use their knowledge to teach the homeowner about the system and solve problems with sales; they can earn money while being solutions-oriented. NCI's High-Performance HVAC Summit is a training event geared toward HVAC business owners and contractors. It started as a membership conference for education and networking, and it has since expanded to include like-minded HVAC professionals from all walks of life. Workshops are led by a mix of contractors and NCI staff, and there are breakout sessions and other various session types.  This year's High-Performance Summit theme will be “It All Starts With Service.” The four focal points of the workshops will be lead generation through service and maintenance, CO safety, the lead handoff from service to sales, and maintenance agreements. One more session will focus on hands-on testing, called “Low-Performance Town” this year, and there will be a panel about the future of high-performance HVAC. Dominick and Bryan also discuss: Dominick and NCI's history in the industry High-performance maintenance Consumers who do their research The HVACR Training Symposium High-Performance Summit Awards Banquet NCI's collaboration with other industry leaders and organizations   Visit https://www.gotosummit.com/ to learn more about the High-Performance Summit.

https://www.youtube.com/nutrientsurvival https://nutrientsurvival.com/ "Big Meat" is a term used to describe the major corporations that dominate the global meat industry. These companies are often criticized for their practices, including concerns over animal welfare, environmental impact, and the health effects of consuming large amounts of meat. Some of the largest companies in the "Big Meat" industry include: 1. Tyson Foods: Tyson Foods is one of the largest meat processing companies in the world, with operations in beef, pork, and chicken processing. The company also produces prepared foods and has a significant presence in international markets. 2. JBS USA: JBS USA is the second-largest meat packing company in the United States by volume. They are the largest world-wide. 3. Cargill: Cargill is a multinational corporation that operates in a variety of industries, including agriculture and food processing. Cargill is one of the largest meat processors in the world, with a significant presence in the United States and Europe. In 2019, Tyson Foods committed to a set of principles and guidelines for responsible labor practices, including a commitment to eliminating child labor in its operations and supply chains. Similarly, JBS has committed to a set of responsible labor practices that includes a zero-tolerance policy for child labor, and the company has implemented a number of initiatives to promote ethical labor practices and prevent child labor in its operations and supply chains. Apparently these policies are just for show. Consumers can play a role in this by choosing to support companies that prioritize responsible labor practices and by advocating for stronger labor laws and enforcement.

In this throwback episode from 2021, Mark Kinsley and Mark Quinn interview, Jesse Kostuhoski, Vice President of Retail Development for the Furniture and Appliance Mark in Stephens Point, Wisconsin. He is a 25+ year industry veteran, spending more than 15 years in retail stores and almost a decade with Serta. Based on his unique perspective, it's clear he has a pulse on the consumer and what their core needs are. If you think engagement, trust and advocacy aren't the first things on a customer's mind, you may need to think again. They also chat about hiring and the current issues with finding good help. Lack of help is a pervasive problem that is currently affecting every industry, and they discuss how hiring an employee goes beyond their skill set, but must also include a discussion on goals and dreams–both for the employee and you as their employer. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/mattresspodcast/message

Tom welcomes back David Hay author, CO-Founder and CO-CIO of Evergreen Gavekal. He recently released his book "Bubble 3.0" which is a warning David isn't surprised that Powell intends to maintain these rate levels, which remain well below the CPI. He is trying to cool the markets down, yet bond spreads have recently narrowed. Fixing the problems today is a conundrum, as deficits are rising. He expects credit spreads to widen, resulting in a downtrend for stocks. What happens if government tax revenues decline while the Fed tightens and debt servicing rises? Things will become painful quickly. Central banks' acquisition of gold is running at record pace, and they are not buying U.S. Treasuries, which could be a real problem for the Fed. What if rates have to rise during a recession? We are seeing the weakness in housing markets, especially in Canada, where prices are starting to crack, and commercial real estate is already a disaster. We are in unprecedented territory, where fake GDP growth could occur. This is why people are suffering, as inflation eats up any wage improvements. Monetary policy works with lags, and these are variable but likely inevitable. It is encouraging to see nuclear coming back as energy realities return, even though coal usage is setting records globally. He discusses how the nuclear regulatory commission should be renamed to the anti-nuclear regulatory commission. David believes the uranium market is poised to outperform, as dozens of new plants are being constructed in Asia. He explains why SMR technology could be beneficial for stabilizing the grid, by creating power at a local level.

Characterizing the popular TikTok app as a modern-day “Trojan Horse” because its parent company, ByteDance, is based in China, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman, Michal McCaul, aa Texas Republican, introduced the “Deterring America's Foreign Adversaries Act, which would ban TikTok in the United States. Democrats oppose the bill, saying it would go too far in abridging the Freedom of Speech. The American Civil Liberties Union is also pushing back against the bill. Federal courts have previously held that blocking TikTok would violate the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which limits the president's ability to block informational and personal communications.   In the coming weeks, TikTok is expected to release a new feature that notifies kids when they have been using the app over a specified period of time, after which kids can decide if they want to stay logged in. For kids under 13, they'll need a password from mom and dad to keep using TikTok after the allotted time has passed. Critics of these measures say they are meaningless since kids can still claim to be adults when they set up TikTok accounts. A new initiative from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children has a new app called ‘Take it Down' that helps kids confidentially remove nude images of themselves that exist online, shared when they were minors. The app is available for download at https://takeitdown.ncmec.org/. It doesn't work with TikTok yet. However, it does work with Facebook, Instagram, OnlyFans, and PornHub. The White House last week released what it is calling a New Initial Blueprint to address online harassment and abuse. The Executive Summary, prepared by a Task Force the Biden Harris Administration established last year, includes provisions for preventing online harassment and abuse, supporting victims, conducting research, and holding platforms accountable. And as prosecutors in states in which abortion has become illegal continue to push for more access to reproductive health data from women seeking abortions, some lawmakers are seeking privacy legislation more suited for our post-Roe v. Wade world.  One bill, introduced by Democratic Representative Sara Jacobs from California – the SAFER Health Act – would require patients to provide consent to permit healthcare providers to share  data about abortions or miscarriages, even if the data are being sought via court order.    And democratic senators Mazie Hirono, Amy Klobuchar, and Elizabeth Warren  also introduced a bill – the Upholding Protections for Health and Online Location Data (UPHOLD) Privacy Act - that would also restrict access to patient location data. The new bill comes amid a decision by Walgreens –America's  second-largest pharmacy chain – to stop selling abortion prescriptions throughout the United States, even where abortion remains legal. The decision dealt a blow to abortion rights activists.  The Federal Trade Commission has proposed a $7.5 million settlement to mental health app BetterHealth for sharing patients' data with marketers even after telling the patients Betterhealth would protect the data.   The FTC has also commenced looking into how landlords may use algorithms to screen tenants.   In other news …   The Inspector General's Office of the Department of Homeland Security issued a report showing  federal law enforcement officials with Immigrations & Customs Enforcement, as well as  other federal agencies, didn't follow established protocols for using cell-site simulators – or Stingrays – to pursue subjects.   Police in the Commonwealth of Virginia are back to using facial recognition software – but the data collection is limited to certain circumstances, which don't include scanning faces in real-time.   Algorithms are starting to decide which employees to lay off.   And Google has released its civil rights review.     House Committee Advances Bill To Ban TikTok "If it's too dangerous to be on our phones, it's also too dangerous to be on our children's phones," Rep.

Sustainable Supply Chains + Net-Zero Deforestation, Responsible Commodity Sourcing and Risk Management with Gen Z for the Trees (RainforestPartnership.org)

Supply Chain Revolution

Play Episode Listen Later Mar 2, 2023 22:43


Sustainable supply chains can address the key drivers of forest and biodiversity loss in the agriculture and forestry sectors, fueling biodiversity conservation and responsible sourcing of commodities like palm oil, soy, timber, and much more. Episode 71 introduces Gen Z for the Trees, a powerful youth movement aiming for net zero deforestation by 2030 using supply chain mapping + modeling techniques, GIS, and environmental science knowledge to uncover what's REALLY happening in some of the biggest brands' supply chains...and all while attending university full time. Deforestation in the supply chain is bad for several reasons. First and foremost, deforestation has a significant negative impact on the environment, leading to loss of biodiversity, soil erosion, and carbon emissions. Deforestation also contributes to climate change by reducing the number of trees that can absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. In addition to the environmental impact, deforestation can also have negative social and economic consequences. Forests are often home to indigenous and local communities who rely on the forest for their livelihoods, including hunting, fishing, and gathering of forest products. Deforestation can displace these communities and disrupt their way of life. From a business perspective, deforestation can also pose a risk to companies that source products from areas affected by deforestation, such as palm oil, soy, beef, and timber. Consumers are increasingly aware of the impact of deforestation and may choose to avoid products that contribute to it. In addition, regulatory frameworks aimed at reducing deforestation are being put in place in many countries, and companies that fail to comply with these regulations may face legal and reputational risks. As part of the Rainforest Partnership, the goal of Gen Z for the Trees is to inform the world about sustainable living, stakeholders in the rainforest, and current grassroots efforts to mitigate climate change. They also commit to promoting the work of indigenous rainforest communities while celebrating these communities' deep and unique understanding of the rainforest. Gen Z is the generation of change: many of these changes, like climate change, were set in place generations ago but threaten our future on this planet. As temperatures climb, sea levels rise, and natural disasters intensify each year, Gen Z must grapple with the inevitability of change. As the most connected, diverse, and largest generation in the history of the world, Gen Z is driven by immediate action and near instant togetherness. Gen Z makes up 40% of consumers both in the United States and globally. By 2026, Gen Z will be over 40% of the workforce with influence far-reaching, they are poised to create a more sustainable future.
