BUSINESS NEWS | 17 De c | AZ BUSINESS MAGAZINE When it comes to Instagram-worthy locations, there are a few cities which will leave you in awe, and leave your followers green with envy. From Sant a Ba rba r a Be a ch to the Gr and Canyon, leading entertainment company Playpicks has created an interactive tool, which lists 20 of the most hash- tagged locations, as well as other Instagram ready lo- cations such as art museums, aquariums, and festivals. In 2018, if you don’t take a photo, it’s like it never happened. Social platforms like Instagram act as out- lets which let us explore places we’ve never seen be- for e – one s e a r ch of a ha sht ag and you’ll have eve rything a t your finge rtips. But where are the most t agged pl a c e s in America? New r e s e a r ch from entertainment expe rts Pl ayPi cks uncove rs the most shared locations in the USA, de lving into c a t egori e s from be a che s to a r ena s and f e sti- vals, to uncover the most Instagrammable hotspots in the US. Alongside this, PlayPicks ran a survey of the US public to reveal just how reliant the nation is on social media, in par- ticular when it comes to traveling.

Top Most Hashtagged Places in the U.S.

PlayUSA have scoured Instagram to find the top 20 hashtagged places spanning over nine different cate- gories. These are the top five most hashtagged loca- tions overall in the U.S for Instagrammers:

• Disneyl and Anahe im – Not just whe r e dr e ams come true, but also where hashtags are made. Disney- l and wa s built in 1955 and ha s sinc e r e c e ived 19,783,733 Insta shares. Considering the fact that they had an estimated attendance last year of 18.3 million, it’s of no surprise that it’s the most hashtagged loca- tion in America. It’s sister park in Florida, Disneyland Magic Kingdom, takes the second spot on the most hashtagged list at 9,400,298 posts.

• Mi ami Be a ch – This man-made be a ch ha s 8,673,724 shares on Instagram, making it the most In- stagrammed beach in the US – and with 15.22 square mil e s of be autiful, golden s and and r e l axa tion, it’s easy to see why you can’t help but take one for your grid.

• Central Park – One of two of New York’s offerings in the top 10 list (the other being Times Square) is its first ma jor l ands c ape pa rk. The pa rk’s construc tion started in 1857 and upon its completion, it became one of the most popular tourist destinations – having ap- proximately 40 million visitors a year and 6,104,544 shares on Instagram.

turn your clock back".
Dear Billy,
Nice spelling. You're on your way to a
career in lawn care. How about I give
you a frigging book so you can learn
to read and write? I'm giving your
older brother the space ranger. At
least HE can spell!
A little girl climbed up onto
her grandfather ’s lap and
asked, “Did God make me?”
nowadays
Santa
“Yes,” the grandpa replied.
“Did he make you, too?”
“Yes.”
“Well,” the girl said, looking
at his wrinkles and thinning hair, “he sure
is doing a better job nowadays!”
Arguments
A uthor and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked
to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.
Here’s a sample:
O ne ye a r, I de c ided to buy my
mother-in-law a cemetery plot
On my way home one day, I stopped to watch a Little League base-
ball game that was being played in a park near my home.
As I sat down behind the bench on the first- base line, I asked
one of the boys what the score was? 'We're behind 14 to
nothing,' he answered with a smile.
'Really,' I said. 'I have to say you don't
look very discouraged.'
'Discouraged?', the boy
asked with a puzzled
look on his face...
'Why should we
be discouraged?
We haven't been
up to bat yet.'
as a Christmas gift...
The next year, I didn't buy her a
gift.
When she a sked me why, I
replied,
"Well,you still haven't used the
gift I bought you last year!"
And
tha t's
how
the fight
started.....
LOVE this truck
Had to go back to the dealer yesterday because I couldn't get the radio to work.
The service technician explained that the radio was voice-activated.
'Nelson', the technician said to the radio.
The radio replied, 'Ricky or Willie? ' 'Willie!' he continued, and 'On The Road Again'
came from the speakers.
Then he said, 'Ray Charles!', and in an instant 'Georgia On My Mind' replaced Willie
Nelson.
I drove away happy, and for the next few days, every time I'd say, 'Beethoven', I'd
ge t be autiful c l a ssi c a l musi c ,
and if I said, 'Beatles', I'd get one
of their awesome songs.
Well, yesterday, a woman ran
a r ed light and ne a rly sma shed
into my new truck, but luckily I
swerved in time to avoid her. I
yelled at her, 'Crazy B---h!'
The radio replied, "HILLARY
or PELOSI ?"
I love this truck..

4 Steps to Stop Most Fights Ja p a n is N o t P erfect
4 Steps to Stop
Most Fights
Ja p a n is N o t P erfect
B u t U n lik e
A n y O th er C o u n try
C ouples fight when they are unable
to effectively problem solve to-
gether. At the root of every fight is
a problem that begs to be solved. Unfor-
tunately, emotions often take over, things
escalate, and before you know it husband
and wife, business partners, relatives are
screaming at each other, hurting each
other as their relationship disintegrates.
Here’s a simple yet powerful strategy
that can stop any fight and shift a fighting
couple from an adversarial stance to a col-
laborative stance. There are 4 steps:
example, Josh and Ann may realize
that phone usage is most damaging
when they first see each other at the
end of the day and that they perhaps
should have a box to put their phones
in for some agreed upon period of
time until they have had time to talk
and connect. Their goal is to try to
find a win-win solution which means
that both feel good about the solution
and neither one feels like the loser.
From a counseling perspective,
this is called repairing the break-
down. A good repair is when neither
person has any residual bad feelings.
Each person needs to be honest
about how they feel. If both feel
good then it’s repaired. If not,
then they need to keep working
to find a better solution. Many cou-
ples don’t arrive at a satisfactory re-
pair and leave the conversation
feeling upset.Multiple failures to re-
pair results in a build up of resent-
ment and anger which spells doom
for most relationships.
Almost everyone in Japan

J apan is a country which has a rich culture that combines old traditions
from the past centuries with today’s incredible technology. Therefore,
due to their unique place in both history and the present, it’s little wonder
that Japanese life differs greatly from the one that we’re used to In fact,
sometimes, this country surprises us so much that we’d be forgiven for
thinking that it’s from another planet. The following photo proves that

Step 1: Stop the fight. When a fight
starts, one person has to say clearly and
strongly, “Let’s stop fighting. We have a
problem that needs to be solved.” Of
course, this won’t work unless both peo-
ple agree beforehand, in a state of calm,
to use this strategy. It can’t work as uni-
lateral intervention. But when both people
agree to use this intervention, you’ll be
amazed to see that fighting will become
less and less of an option.
Every fight is about some problem that
the couple has an equal share in. Of
course, one person may be the initial
cause and catalyst of the problem. But in
a relationship there is no such thing as
“You are the problem.” Every problem is
our problem because both people, in
Step 4: Be on the alert for underly-
ing, deeper issues. When a couple has
difficulty agreeing on what the prob-
lem is or when they agree but can’t
find a solution, this usually means there
Japan is unlike any other country.
some way, contribute to fueling the con-
flict. For example, Ann has had it with
Josh’s obsessive phone habits. She feels
that he’s married to his phone not to her.
Although Josh’s usage is somewhat ob-
sessive, the nasty fighting might be less
ugly if Ann didn’t have such a short fuse.
The person drilling the hole on his side
of the boat can’t say to the other person
in the boat, “Hey what’s your problem?
I’m drilling the hole on my side of the
boat.” Clearly, both will drown when the
boat sinks.
When a couple agrees to stop the ver-
b a l s p a r i n g , t h e y i m m e d i a t e l y s h i f t
from an adversarial stance to a collab-
orative stance.
Step 2: Identify and name the prob-
lem. The next step towards deepening
the collaboration is to agree on what the
problem is. This is not always easy to do
because any given problem often has
layers to it. What seems to be the prob-
lem may only be the symptom of a
deeper underlying problem, but you
have to start somewhere.
For example, Josh and Ann may agree
that their problem is how to make sure
that cell phone use doesn’t damage their
relationship. What’s important is to
agree on giving a name to the problem.
This gives the two of you a common
focus for working together to try solving
the problem.
Step 3: Start working together to solve
the problem. At this stage, you are expe-
riencing a high level of collaboration. For
is a deeper underlying issue.
After an hour of talking about bound-
ary issues, Josh is still upset. He still
feels hurt and angry at Ann. As it turns
out, Josh feels threatened by Ann’s lim-
iting his cell phone use. Josh has always
been anxious about money since he grew
up in a home where money was always
tight. Now as he’s building his business,
he feels a great pressure to succeed in
order to avoid the type of emotional pain
he experienced as a child when money
was tight. On top of this, he also remem-
bers how often his parent’s fought be-
cause of money. Now that he’s married,
he unconsciously worries that if he does-
n’t make a lot of money him and Ann
will begin fighting like his parents did.
In his mind, having constant access to
his phone is the key to his success.
What makes it hard to spot an underly-
ing issue is that the person who has the
issue has usually unconsciously built a
strong defensive strategy to protect him
or herself from being overwhelmed and
crushed by certain threatening feelings.
When a couple repeatedly finds them-
selves stuck on a specific issue that they
can’t resolve, it is wise at that point to
seek out professional help
Judaism’s ultimate definition of marital
success is called shalom bayit – a home
of peace. The first step toward building a
home of peace is to stop hurtful and de-
structive fighting. I believe that a couple
who commits to using these four steps
will find it easier than they think to avoid
destructive fighting and build a collabo-
rative relationship.

Will Californians Strike a Blow For Lower Taxes and Gasoline Prices? By Merrill Matthews Last month,
Will Californians Strike
a Blow For Lower Taxes
and Gasoline Prices?
By Merrill Matthews
Last month, Californians had the opportunity to
get the government out of their pockets -- or, more
accurately, out of their gas tanks. Not completely,
but it's a start.
Last year the Golden State's legislature increased
gasoline and dies el fuel taxes and vehicle f ees.
Proposition 6, on the November ballot, would have
repealed those tax increases and required voter ap-
proval for future gasoline and vehicle fee increases.
The measur e f ailed to pass. Californians should
have known better.
Last year's 12- cent-per-gallon gasoline tax in-
crease pushed the state's gas tax to 55.22 cents per
gallon, the second highest in the nation after Penn-
sylvania. That's on top of the federal gasoline excise
tax of 18.40 cents per gallon.
The stated goal of the tax increase was to raise
about $6 billion a year for road repair. But when it
comes to gasoline and dies el taxes, what states
California is not alone. Nationwide, the FHA says
that about 25 per cent of gasoline taxes ar e r edi-
rected to mass transit and other purposes And those
other purpos es vary significantly. For example,
about 25 percent of gasoline taxes in Texas are redi-
rected to public education.
N o w, st a t e s a r e f r e e t o s p e n d g a s o l i n e t a x a n d
f e e s h o w e v e r t h e y c h o o s e . B u t i t 's d u p l i c i t o u s t o
i m p o s e a t a x o st e n si b l y f o r t h e p u r p o s e s o f r o a d
and highway building and r epa ir and then r edir e c t
t h o s e f u n d s t o o t h e r p u r p o s e s . A n d t h e n w h i n e
t h a t t h e s t a t e n e e d s e v e n m o r e m o n e y f o r i n f r a -
st r u c t u r e .
Another problem: gasoline taxes are some of the
most "regressive," meaning they hit lower-income
folks harder than they do higher income.
Liber als tend to strongly oppos e r egr essive tax
structures; they prefer a "progressive tax system" -
- one that imposes higher rates on higher-income
people.
claim and what they actually do can be two different
things.
According to the Federal Highway Administra-
tion, California raised $4.8 billion from the state's
gas tax in 2016 -- before the additional 12-cent tax
took effect. Nearly $4 billion went to "highway pur-
pos es. " But $578 million was r edir ected to mass
transit and $247 million was spent on "general pur-
poses."
Ther e's mor e. The state collected $6.97 billion
from motor vehicle registrations. And while most
was devoted to highways, $709 million was spent
on mass transit and $304 million, as well as $408
million from toll r evenues, was spent on gener al
purposes.
So of the various California gasoline taxes and
car fees, $1.3 billion was redirected from road re-
pair to mass tr ansit and $960 million for gener al
purposes. Would Sacramento have needed that 12-
cent increase if it had funneled all of that revenue
to road repair?
Yet many of the states with the highest gasoline
taxes -- e.g., California, Washington, Pennsylvania,
New York, Illinois, etc. -- can be some of the most
left-leaning states.
Put bluntly, high-gas-tax states don't have a rev-
enue problem. They have a spending problem. Had
California utilized all thos e gasoline- and car-r e -
lated tax revenues for road building and repair --
nearly $2.3 billion -- it wouldn't have needed to
raise the gas tax.
States need to be held financially and politically
accountable for spending decisions. If they claim
they need a gasoline tax increase in order to repair
the roads, that's what they should use the money for.
But they won't unless voters hold them accountable
Californian voters failed to do that this Novem-
ber. Other states should learn from their mistake.

gerous violations during the two-year period covered by the survey. That number placed the stadium sixth from the bottom on the list. However, as they’re nursing their aching tummies - or worse - Yankees fans can take solace in the fact the sta- dium performed better overall than the average of all New York City food dispen- s aries. Ditto for Coors Field, which also performed better than food establishments in the surrounding area, despite having 71.2 percent of the food outlets recording one or more unhealthy food-safety violations. Stadium food sales are big business. Ac- cording to the National Association of Con- cessionaires, food operations at pro sports venues are a $2 billion a year industry in the United States alone. But not all the viola- tions can be attributed to national food serv- ice companies. Some venues s elf-operate their concessions. Others allow nonprofit or- ganizations to run the stands as fundraisers and volunteers may not be properly trained

in food-handling procedures. Perhaps the best protection for sports fans is to eat before the game. But if you plan to eat at the stadium, you might want to have some Tums and or favorite pro- biotics handy.

Welcome to Coors Field in Denver, home of the Colorado Rockies…along with the not-so-safe food offerings mentioned above. An ESPN Outside the Lines survey found that in 2016 and 2017 at least half of the food service outlets in 28 percent of sports venues had been flagged for having unsan- itary conditions that pose a risk for a food- borne illness. In fairness to sports arenas, violations do not necessarily mean a venue is in a perpet- ually unsafe or unsanitary condition. Mis- takes can happen, even in the most upscale environment. But stadium environments are unique because of the large number of peo- ple being served in a short period of time – potentially tens-of-thousands versus a hun- dred or less at a restaurant – which means the risks to patrons can be greater. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 48 million people in the United States get sick from foodborne disease each year, of whom 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die. The number who get sick from food served at sports venues alone is unknown, because food poisoning often goes underreported for a variety of reasons. Outside the Lines surveyed 111 North American venues in various sports. The stadium having the highest percentage of outlets with violations was Spectrum Stadium in Charlotte, home of the NBA Hornets, with 92 percent reporting high- level health violations. At the other end of the spectrum was Oracle Arena in Oak- land, home of the NBA Warriors, which only had one outlet of the 89 inspected record a high-level violation. At Yankee Stadium, 79.1 percent of the outlets had one or more potentially dan-

"T his past week I was on a four and a half hour, nonstop flight from

Seattle, Washington, to Atlanta, Georgia. In all my years of trav-

eling, I have learned that each time a plane stops, there is poten-

tial for unexpected challenges.

Flight delays, weather and airline crews can create unanticipated chal-

lenges on any trip. Therefore, I always try to fly nonstop between my des-

tinations.

About an hour into this flight the Captain's voice came over the intercom.

She asked if there was a physician or nurse on

the pl ane . If so, she a sked them to identify

themselves by ringing the flight attendant call

button beside their seat. I listened carefully but

he a rd no one ring the ir be ll. I immedi a t e ly

began to wonder what was happening.

In a few minutes the Captain informed us that

there was a medical emergency on board and

asked again if there was a physician or a nurse

who could help.

When the r e wa s no r e spons e , we we r e told

that we were going to make an emergency stop

in Denver, Colorado. She apologized but told

us tha t the r e would be a medi c a l eme rgency

team waiting to meet us at the gate and that we

would probably only be delayed by about thirty

minutes. Though it was necessary, we knew we

would all be inconvenienced by the extra stop.

About half an hour later, we landed at Denver International Airport and

the medical crew immediately came on board. However, everything took

longer than had previously been expected. An elderly gentleman, about 95

years old, had suddenly taken ill. It was not clear whether he had experi-

enced a stroke or heart attack.

Even after the gentleman was carried off the plane, we still sat there for

quite a while. The original "short" stop turned into about an hour and a half.

When we finally pushed back from the gate and were in the air, the pilot

apologized profusely for the unavoidable delay.

She said that since the stop had taken longer than expected, those pas-

sengers who needed to make connections in Atlanta would miss their flights

but would automatically be booked on the next flight out. You could almost

hear the moans and groans throughout the airplane of everyone who was

being inconvenienced by the unexpected stop.

Then the pilot did one of the classiest things I have personally ever seen

or heard anyone do.

She spoke into the intercom and said, "Ladies and gentlemen, I thought

you might be interested in one bit of information. The elderly gentleman

who was taken off the plane was a Marine in WWII. I am holding in my

hand my sma rtphone , whi ch

shows a copy of the Congr e s-

sional Medal of Honor that was

awarded to him and signed by

Pr e sident Ha rry Truman in

1945."

The pilot went on to say, "I re-

alize that we have all been in-

convenienced today. However,

the fact that this gentleman was

a wa r he ro and wa s inconve -

nienced for four years of his life

in orde r tha t we might expe ri-

ence the freedoms that we enjoy

today, I thought you all should

know that."

Immediately the airplane was

filled with applause. Everyone

The Local News, January 01, 2019 hbnews1@aol.com 714.914.9797 C o c k t a i l

was cheering and so pleased to know that the gentleman had been cared

for in a way that was fitting and appropriate.

As we continued to fly, I thought to myself, "Isn't that interesting? We

were concerned that we were inconvenienced for a couple of hours and yet,

this gentleman's entire life was interrupted and inconvenienced for over

four years while he went and fought in a war to protect the freedoms and

values that we love and hold dear in this country today."

I breathed a prayer for the gentleman and asked God to bless him for all

he had done to help us understand what freedom is about."

"History does not entrust the care of freedom to the weak or timid." -

Dwight D. Eisenhower

“In old, small villages, local folks started running
out of places to bury people. So they would dig up
coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house,
and reuse the grave.
When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins
were found to have scratch marks on the inside, and
they realized they had been burying people alive.
So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse,
lead it through the coffin and up through the ground
and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out
in the graveyard all night (‘the graveyard shift’) to
listen for the bell .
Thus, someone could be ‘saved by the bell,’ or
was considered a ‘dead ringer. ’

embraced both tequila and Tito’svodka, it seemed like a natural crossover. “We won first place in the class,” says Kauffman. “And some of the investors pulled us aside afterward and said, ;This is a great idea, it’s a cool story; you guys should think about executing a real business plan.’ So we did.” Desert Door is made in Driftwood, Texas, a tiny town about 45 minutes south of Austin, although the sotol is harvested further west, around West Stockton. “The plant does really well in the Chihuahuan Desert, which is half in Mexico and half in Texas, with a little piece of it in New Mexico,” says Kauffman. “The plant really thrives and expands from there.” Of note, the plant that grows in Texas, called Dasylirion texanum, is a dif- ferent strain than the one that grows farther south. It is smaller and has a different flavor, yielding a sotol that Kauffman describes as creamier and more approachable compared to tra- ditional versions. When I tasted Desert Door, it struck me as earthy

and relatively smooth, with a dis- tinct lemongrass note on the nos e and palate. Notably, it didn’t have the pungent, almost sweaty charac- ter I’ve come to associate with most sotols. For now, Desert Door remains a relatively small, local operation, distributed solely in Texas. “We want to focus on our backyard right now,” says Kauffman. “But once we can get our stuff together, then we can look to expand.” Des ert Door is experimenting with a barrel-aged sotol, aged in American oak barrels with medium char and bottled at 100 proof. (The standard issue sotol is 80 proof.) A few hundred bottles were released in September 2018 and promptly sold out. “We’ll fill some more barrels,” says Kauffman. Meanwhile, Desert Door may not be the only producer of Texas sotol for long. Kauffman notes that a num-

ber of potential competitors have filed paperwork to produce a similar spirit. But does a deep enough market exist for more Texas sotol? While bartenders are enthusiastic about the spirit’s wild character, sotol can be a bit of a hard sell for mainstream consumers, acknowledges Kaufmann. “Not everyone falls in love with it,” he says with a shrug. “Some people are obsessed with it, and some people don’t want to drink it at all, which is fine. We’re not making a vodka with no flavor. We’re making something specific and unique and recognizable, and it’s OK that not everyone loves it.”

W earing a cowboy hat on the patio of a Manhattan hotel, Judson Kauffman, the co-founder of Desert Door Texas Sotol, is hard to miss.

Sotol, an earthy, clear spirit sometimes called tequila’s crazy little brother, is usually produced in Mexico. The desert spoon plant used to make it grows wild, notably in Mexico’s Chihuahua region. However, it also grows as far south as Oaxaca and as far north as Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Desert Door isn’t the first to bot- tle sotol in Texas. That honor be- longs to Genius Gin, an Austin producer, which introduced a groundbreaking experimental Texas sotol that it has since discon- tinued. But Desert Door may be the first to bring a Texas-made sotol mainstream, and Kauffman’s com- pany lays claim to being the only producer of Texas sotol. The project began as a business s chool project, while Kauffman was earning an MBA at the Uni- versity of Texas. “The assignment was to come up with an idea for a business, develop a business plan

and, at the end of the class, present it to the professor and a group of investors from Austin,” s ays Kauffman. After a few false starts, he recalled stories that an uncle in West Texas had shared with him as a boy, about moonshining sotol. “I didn’t know what that was as a boy,” he says. “But it stuck in my brain for some reason.” He and his project group began researching desert spirits, such as racilla, ba- canora and sotol. “We slowly fell more and more in love with the his- tory of sotol and the romance of moonshining in the pre-Hispanic era of distillers and brewers,” he says. While a number of sotol produc- ers from Mexico have started to make inroads in the U.S. market (Don Cuco, Hacienda de Chi- huahua and Por Siempre, to men- tion a few), they dis covered that the plant grows in abundance in Texas, and that opportunity existed to sell a fully made-in-Texas sotol. In a state where consumers have

its retail water agencies in the GWRS. It also represents a
50 percent increase in the amount of potable reuse water for
which the producers, like the cities of Huntington Beach and
Fountain Valley, will receive credit during times of drought.
OCWD, along with its retail water agencies, took an “op-
pose” position to any new state-wide tax on water, including
a tax with an opt-out feature [SB 845 (Monning D-Carmel)].
That tax would have been inefficient and expensive as more
than 3,000 water systems were required to change their
billing systems and hire staff to implement different prac-
tices. Additionally, the intended use of the tax became less
pressing after Proposition 68 was voter-approved. It allo-

O h W i s d o m , W h e r e f o r e A r t T h o u

Dr. James L. Snyder

O ne feature of the Christmas story has to

do with the wise men. Wisdom is such a

rare commodity today I think it would be

a wise thing to resurrect these wise men. After

all, you never can have too much wisdom.

I wa s thinking about this the

those things and checking them off with my red

pen as I finish them.

When I got to the fifth thing to do, I was a little

surprised and not sure what it meant. It simply

said, “Get groceries for the week.”

I did not quit e unde rst and this. I went ba ck

through my weekly planner to see when the last

time I got groc e ri e s for the

week was. I could not find

one time that I did.

Right after that one was,

“Fill my wife’s car up with

gas.”

The next one was, “Do the

other day as I was going over my

weekly “to-do-list.” I make one of

these every week so I know what

I’m suppos ed to do. As I finish

one task, I check it off in red ink.

One of the great advantages of

getting old (and the definition of

laundry for the week.”

old is up to the person using it)

I do not eve r r emembe r

writing any of the s e things

is tha t I c an a lways s ay, “ I’m

too old to do that anymore.”

Tha t is why I ne ed to have

my own pl anne r whe r e I c an

outline my own plans.

This created somewhat of a

probl em not too long ago. I

am not making any a c cus a -

tions, mind you. But I do have my suspicions.

The beginning of the week I opened my weekly

pl anne r and noti c ed I had jott ed down “ to-do”

things I r e a lly did not quit e r emembe r. I just

thought that was old age and I had forgotten I had

jotted down these things.

Being the kind of person I am, I began doing

down. I know I am getting old

and lack a lot of wisdom, but

this is ridiculous.

I examined my weekly “to-

do-list” and noticed nothing on

tha t list tha t in any way pe r-

t a ined to me . None of the

chor e s I do eve ry we ek wa s

even hinted on that page.

Sitting in my chair slowly going over the list

my wife walked in and looked at me. She said,

“What are you so much in thought about?”

Without even looking up I replied, “I’m trying

to figure out my weekly to do list here. I must’ve

been crazy when I planned this week out.”

Then, the person on the other side of the room

began l aughing hyst e ri c a lly. When she qui e t ed

down a little she said, “Have you finished all your

chores for the week?”

  • I looked up at her and saw her laughing and all

of a sudden, I had a stroke of wisdom like never

before. Looking at her I asked, “Did you write

this in my book?”

She did not have to answe r with words, he r

danc ing eye s and hil a rious l aughe r, told me

everything I needed to know.

  • I thought of what Solomon said, “Blessed is the

one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets un-

derstanding, for the gain from her is better than

gain from silver and her profit better than gold”

(Proverbs 3:13-14).

One good thing about having wisdom is tha t

you do not have to be too serious about every-

thing in life.

At Majdanek concentration camp in 1944, these Russian soldiers look utterly

confused about how to deal with the remains of thousands of deceased. From

1941-1944 the camp collected thousands of Jews from Eastern Europe and Rus-

shot for their inability.

C AR SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES: A SLOW, E XPENSIVE
START — BUT THE POTENTIAL IS HUGE

It's in automakers' best interests to get subscriptions right

JIM MOTAVALLI

Americans are used to paying for subscriptions — to magazines and cable

television, for instance — but experience shows they'll cancel when the

price of admission gets too high, or there are more tempting alternatives.

Cord cutters ditched nearly 1.5 million pay-TV subscriptions in 2017, ac-

cording to a survey by Leichtman Research Group.

Cable TV started out cheap with basic offerings, and then got expensive.

The auto industry's subscription offerings are new, but they're starting

out costly, and not price-competitive with traditional leasing. The up-

side is that they take the hassle out of car ownership for busy people

by letting the service take care of maintenance, insurance, licensing

and taxes. And they give consumers choice, often allowing relatively

painless switches between different cars in the automakers' lineup.

Subscription services also point the way toward an ownership-free

auto expe ri enc e , and off e r an e a sy tr ansition to a pot enti a l world

where ride- and car-sharing will be dominant. Subscriptions are here

to stay, but consumers may take a while to "get" them. Lincoln's-

subscription service for lightly used 2015 to 2017 models, offered

through the Ford-owned Canvas beginning this year, got off to a

slow start. Many early subscribers canceled.

Last month, Cadillac announced it would "temporarily pause" its

$1,800-per-month Book subscription service for "adjustments" as

of December 1. According to the Wall Street Journal, "Snags with

the back-end technology used to support the service made some

customer-service functions tedious and time-consuming, adding

costs for the company."

The challenge for automakers is to come up with a strategy that offers

consumers a compelling, affordable option to regular ownership, and one

that can also make a profit. I think they'll find that sweet spot, but they're

not there yet.

Jack Nerad, former executive editorial director at Kelley Blue Book and

author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Buying or Leasing a Car," points

out that "A lot of people expected that subscriptions would be very valuable

for people who wanted inexpensive transportation, but the reality is quite

the opposite Subscriptions are offering more choices for the wealthy. And,

faced with a $1,500 monthly payment, those consumers might just choose

to go out and buy the car they really want."

Some basic mechanics: The services vary, with some charging a flat fee

for access to a specific group of cars, and others setting different monthly

rates for different models. Many of the services are tiered, with entry-level

cars on the bottom, premium and luxury on the top. Mileage restrictions

are common, but fairly generous. Care by Volvo allows $1,000 worth of

damage to the car or excess miles without penalty. Many of the programs

are offered in only a few cities.

Price resistance has led some automakers to lower their tariffs. BMW's

Access charged a whopping $3,700 for its top M tier, but now that's down

to $2,699. And a base $1,099 tier has been added.

Some more sample pricing:

Care by Volvo: $600 a month for the XC40, $775 for the S60, no down

payment.

Mercedes-Benz Collection: Car changes with minimal notice; lower Re-

serve tier, $1,595 per month; Premier tier, $2,995; The application fee is

$495.

According to Ivan Drury, a senior analyst at Edmunds, "The sticker shock

is kind of impressive." He pointed out that under BMW's original plan, a

consumer would be paying $3,700 monthly to drive an X6 M. "The

tr aditiona l l e a s e on the s ame c a r was
tr aditiona l l e a s e on the s ame c a r
was half that," Drury said. "For that

price, a customer could lease both an M6 coupe and the X6 M and

have them both on hand."

Independent offerings include Flexdrive, Less, Borrow, Fair and Carma.

The offerings vary, of course, but a big benefit is their fleets include cars

from more than one manufacturer. Want to try a Tesla? Borrow one from

Borrow, which is electric-only. But only Los Angeles residents can apply.

Drury pointed out that third-party services give consumers "lots of wiggle

room" on vehicle choice, and most likely a minivan if that's what a family

actually needs. The third parties are also usually cheaper than the auto com-

panies.

Want another parallel? The record companies tried to offer online music

before iTunes, but not only overpriced their services, but some made them

blatantly self-serving, with files that disappeared when customers unsub-

scribed. Apple's $1 for a song you'd own forever was instantly appealing

The stumbles at the opening gate may be short-lived. It is really in au-

tomakers' interests to build subscription services that work, both for them

and the people who want to access transportation, not own it.

There's no doubt that the subscription model works. It's potentially quite

disruptive. But the full impact won't arrive until Americans are offered a

deal they can't refuse.
