Insight On Business the News Hour

The Business News Headlines 14 May 2019

What a difference a day makes...twenty-four little hours.  It's the business news headlines and today this is what we've got cooked up for you:

  • 24 hours ago the sky was falling. Today? "Dead cat bounce";
  • While UBER was bleeding cash big banks raked in the loot;
  • How long will the trade war last? Some say a long time;
  • Hungry and stuck in traffic? Burger King has an app for that;
  • Heard about the class action suit against Turbo-Tax?
  • What happened and why on Wall Street

Also today we're going to deliver to you Quick Bites part of our Out to Lunch segment where I get to ask our guest three questions. Today it's John Norris, partner with the State Public Policy Group who is going to share with us his favorite book, movie and if he wasn't doing what he is doing now...what might he like to be doing. John Norris and Quick Bites at Trostel's Dish. Here is that conversation

Quick Bites - Three Questions for Haley Anderson

Before we launch into our business lunch we do "Quick Bites" three questions...the same three questions we as each of our "Out to Lunch" guests. We ask about a book, a movie and a job. What book impacted you, what movie impacted you and if you were NOT doing what you are now doing...what would you love to do?  Three questions we call "Quick Bites". Here is Haley Anderson from Iowa Voters for Companion Animals with her answers and they were really...good.

Out to Lunch - Protecting Pets with Haley Anderson

Each week I go "Out to Lunch" with an interesting person and you get to come along and listen in to our conversation. This week we're at the Range Grill + Golf with Haley Anderson from Iowa Voters for Companion Animals. This is a group that is lobbying for stronger laws to protect pets from cruelty. Cruelty that we've just heard about where a man stabbed his puppy and threw it in a dumpster because he was, "tired of it". Really?  Not only that but Iowa is a leader in what is known as "puppy mills" where bad actors mistreat breeding dogs...Really? Here Haley talks about the legislative effort to secure more protections for family pets. This is not a farm bill this is all about family pets and protection. Come with us as we go Out to Lunch!
