Transcript: Nightly Business Report – September 2, 2019

ANNOUNCER:  This is NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT with Bill Griffeth and Sue  Herera.  


SUE HERERA, NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT ANCHOR:  Good evening, everyone.  And  welcome to the special edition of NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT.  


BILL GRIFFETH, NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT ANCHOR:  On this Labor Day, we`re  going to be taking a look at the American worker, whether you`re an  entrepreneur starting a business or a woman trying to close that gap in a  male-dominated industry.  


But we begin tonight with a look at the nation`s employment picture.  The  strong job market has fuelled consumer spending which has helped power the  economy.  But there is evidence now that things are starting to slow down,  and the gains in the months ahead may not be as strong as they once were.  


Here`s Ylan Mui with that story for us tonight.  
(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)


YLAN MUI, NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT CORRESPONDENT:  It`s lunchtime at Call  Your Mother bagel shop in Washington, D.C., and business is heating up.  


It only opened in October, but already owner Andrew Dana is looking for a  second location and the workers to run it.  


ANDREW DANA, CALL YOUR MOTHER CO-OWNER:  We`re planning on minimum 20  people, and if it is really booming it will be more than that.  So that  will take us over the 100-employee mark, which is pretty crazy.  
MUI:  It is just one example of America`s red hot job market, now nearly  nine years strong.  The economy has added 21 million jobs since 2010 and  unemployment is at the lowest rate since 1969, just 3.7 percent.  


MARTHA GIMBEL, INDEED.COM FORMER RESEARCH DIRECTOR:  This is a recovery  people have counted out again and again and it just keeps trucking along.  


MUI:  The top three sectors for job growth this year, restaurants like Call  Your Mother and other businesses in the leisure and hospitality industry.   They added an average of 23,000 jobs a month.  Second, professional and  business services, growing by 33,000 jobs a month.  And topping the list,  health care, delivering 55,000 jobs a month.  


But experts are starting to worry that trouble lies ahead.  The economy  isn`t growing as fast as it did last year, and hiring has slowed down too,  averaging 165,000 jobs a month so far this year.  Compare that to 227,000  jobs over the same period last year. 


Retailers are struggling, shedding workers almost every month, and  manufacturing has taken a hit, adding an average of just 8,000 jobs a  month, down from 22,000 last year.  


GIMBEL:  It`s absolutely slowed down from last year, and part of what we`re  seeing is just that some of those policy factors that we`ve all been  discussing for a while like the trade war are starting to bite.  And we are  seeing companies starting to have to change their hiring practices to  accommodate that volatility and uncertainty about the trade outlook that  they`ve been putting off.  


MUI:  There`s good news for workers though.  Wages are finally rising after  remaining stagnant for years.  


At Call Your Mother, employees can make up to $28 an hour, including tips.   But it`s not just the money that attracts workers.  


DANA:  We also offer health insurance, 401(k).  This year, we added dental  and vision, free gym membership, free language classes.  The fund committee  is out of control.  


MUI:  He wants to make sure the business and bagels never get stale.  
For NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT, I`m Ylan Mui in Washington.  
(END VIDEOTAPE)


HERERA:  Once a month on the day when the government releases its  employment report, we bring you the story of an entrepreneur who had a  bright idea and was able to turn it into a successful business.  Tonight,  we`re going to revisit a couple of those stories and find out where they  are now.  


We begin with a company called RapidSOS, which is helping to bring  emergency service communications like 911 into the modern age.  Here is the  story we brought you first.  
(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)


UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  Where you`re saying you`re at and where the phone says  you`re at is about five miles apart.


HERERA:  It`s a problem that`s dogged 911 operators.  Built in the 1960s,  911 works well with landline phones.  But call on a cellphone, and 911 gets  only an approximate location, often using nearby cell towers, even if the  call is made at a 911 call center.


JOE THOMAS, SUSSEX COUNTY EMERGENCY OPS. DIR.:  It`s roughly 4,000 meters  away from where we`re actually at.


HERERA:  That`s why Joe Thomas` staff at the Sussex County Emergency  Operations Center in Delaware is testing RapidSOS, a software allowing the  existing 911 system to read more data coming from smartphones.


THOMAS:  It pinpoints it right on top of the building where we`re located.


HERERA:  Michael Martin got the idea after he felt like he had been  followed home in New York City one night back in 2012.


MICHAEL MARTIN, RAPIDSOS CO-FOUNDER AND CEO:  911 call takers are doing  heroic work in light of that challenge.  But we`re giving them basically no  data to manage those calls.


HERERA:  In grad school, he teamed with Nicholas Horelik who volunteered on  taking emergency calls on a hotline during college.


NICHOLAS HORELIK, RAPIDSOS CO-FOUNDER AND CTO:  It was the same type of  problem.  Someone is calling in distress and we have no idea where they  are.


HERERA:  So, they co-founded RapidSOS.  But perhaps more important than  their techno-how was the four years they spent taking input from government  officials, and many of the 6,500 911 call centers.  In 2016, they released  a free app call Haven.


HARRISON DANDREA, HIKER:  I was, you know, trying to get to Grandfather  Mountain State Park.


HERERA:  Harrison Dandrea got lost when a thick damp fog rolled in as he  hiked in North Carolina`s Blue Ridge Mountains.


DANDREA:  Your mind just goes into frantic mode.


HERERA:  So, he tapped the Haven app on his phone.


DANDREA:  The operators told me to stay right where I was and a park ranger  would be there within 15 minutes.  And they were.


HERERA:  For some, it can`t happen soon enough.  In 2014, an FCC study said  fixing 911 location issues could save more than 10,000 lives a year.


TOM WHEELER, RAPIDSOS INVESTOR:  Congress talked about it.  But there  hasn`t been any legislation, let alone any passage of something that would  make a difference.


HERERA:  Tom Wheeler is one of three former FCC chairmen who has invested  in RapidSOS.


WHEELER:  They have built a platform that can be applicable in multiple  kinds of situations, not just 911 calls.


HERERA:  Those situations, upgrades to home security, car monitors like  OnStar, and wearable health devices, are where RapidSOS hopes to make  money.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  If this were on a health wearable device, this screen  is going to have health information, heart rate, blood pressure, that`s  coming from a connected car.  


Now, it`s the picture of the car, where was the impact, the airbags  deployed, who was wearing a seatbelt, how many people on the vehicle.


HERERA:  The cost, about $3 to $10 a month.  It could be a small price to  pay.


HORELIK:  The enormity of what it is we work on here, I think that affects  everybody on our team.  I mean, that`s what really drives all of us.
MARTIN:  This is technology that`s going to have the power to save a lot of  lives.
(END VIDEOTAPE)


HERERA:  And RapidSOS co-founder Michael Martin joins us this evening from  San Francisco.  
It`s great to see you, Michael.  Welcome back.  


MARTIN:  Good to be back.  Thank you.  


HERERA:  Since our story aired, RapidSOS has seen a lot of big changes, not  the least of which are partnerships with both Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and  Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), making location data from their phones available to  911 call centers.  


How valuable has that been for all of us in general, of course, but also  RapidSOS in particular?  


MARTIN:  Yes, it has just been extraordinary to see that work with Apple  (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), Uber and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT),  to pass this life-saving data to thousands of first responder agencies in  emergencies.  So, we now manage close to 400,000 emergencies per day, and  since launching last year we`ve managed nearly 90 million emergencies with  over 5,000 lives saved statistically.  
So, it`s — from where we started, it`s just extraordinary to see the  impact we are having in partnership with first responders across the United  States.  


GRIFFETH:  I think you just mentioned Uber as well.  I mean, this location  technology is not just for emergencies, it helps locate riders as well.   How did that — how did you make the jump into that?  


MARTIN:  Yes, the core location technology is done by the existing  providers, but what we`re providing is all of this rich content directly  into 911 and first responders.  So, in the case of an Uber, if there`s some  sort of medical emergency or an emergency in a vehicle, not only can we  pass location, but make, model, color of the vehicle, real-time route  information.  So, a variety of data that can really have an impact as first  responders try to reach you in that incident.  


HERERA:  So, where is your next growth area in terms of bringing in more  revenue?  


MARTIN:  Yes.  So, if we think about just the scale of emergencies across  the United States, we have close to 7 billion connected devices now that  have various forms of life-saving data.  And so, where we`re heading next  is linking all of that content, whether it is real-time health data from a  wearable, real-time crash data in a vehicle incident or data from a  connected building if there`s a fire or something like that, and putting  that directly into the hands of 911 and first responders.  


And the impact obviously is a significantly faster, more effective  response, which reduces costs across the ecosystem, particularly for  insurance companies that are often paying for the damages from these  incidents.  


GRIFFETH:  I`m curious.  This all grew from this insight that you had that  night when you felt like you were being followed.  What do you tell to  budding entrepreneurs who have a bright idea that they want to convert into  a business?  


MARTIN:  I think what was so impactful for us was finding this community of  people who believed in that mission.  I mean, I was a kid that grew up in a  farming community in Indiana, but fortunately found over 4,000 first  responders that believed in what we were trying to do.  And, ultimately, an  ecosystem of partners including big tech companies like Apple  (NASDAQ:AAPL), Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), Uber, et cetera.  
So, I think that ecosystem really made this vision a reality.  


HERERA:  Best of luck to you, Michael.  Can`t wait to get another update.  


MARTIN:  Thank you.


HERERA:  RapidSOS co-founder, Michael Martin.  


GRIFFETH:  Now the other bright idea that we brought you before, what do  you do when your passion is puzzles?  Back in 2013 when video wasn`t as  clear as it is now, we introduced you to David Hoyt.  He quit a lucrative  job to create games, word games.  Now, you might even call him America`s  wordsmith.  
(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)


DAVID HOYT, PUZZLE CREATOR:  If that`s the way — if everyone agrees,  everyone has to agree.  OK.


GRIFFETH:  Who looks more puzzled, David Hoyt or these fifth graders?  If  your answer is David, that`s OK.  His specialty isn`t solving puzzles.   It`s making them.


HOYT:  I have become the most syndicated puzzle creator in the world.


GRIFFETH:  In the basement of his Chicago home, starting about 4:00 a.m.  every day, he masterminds Jumble, that icon of word puzzles, syndicated in  more than 600 newspapers, reaching about 70 million people every single  day.  And then when he`s done, there are a number of other puzzles to piece  together.


HOYT:  I have Word Roundup, that`s in “USA Today”.  Up and Down Words,  that`s in “USA Today.”


GRIFFETH:  Not bad for a high school dropout who never went to college.   He`s started trading options in Chicago, and he did pretty well.
But it left him puzzled about his future.


HOYT:  What if I had never stopped trading?  I would be the world`s biggest  idiot.


GRIFFETH:  He noticed a friend was inventing games.


HOYT:  I decided that I`m going to quit my job, I`m going to save up a  little bit of money and I`m going to instantly become successful.
Well, that didn`t quite work out.


GRIFFETH:  He tried peddling this game and that in between part-time jobs  for four long years.  


HOYT:  I had a game called “Economic Warfare”.


GRIFFETH:  It was a struggle, but his “cup is half full” attitude  eventually paid off.


HOYT:  If it I had been successful on my first run, I would have thought —  I would have thought I was much smarter than I actually was.  In fact, I  needed no, and then why.


GRIFFETH:  In 1996, he brought a word game into Tribune Media Services,  hoping to marry it to their Jumble brand.  They bit and turned it into  Jumble Plus.  But that was just the beginning.


HOYT:  My brain just thought, wow, if they`re willing to do this, maybe —  how about Jumble crosswords, how about TV Jumble, how about Jumble brain  busters?


GRIFFETH:  He kept at the various Jumbles for 15 years, taking over the  original Jumble, in 2011, when his predecessor retired, and then teaming  with cartoonist, Jeff Knurek, Hoyt helped breathe new life into a brand  dating back to the mid-1950s.  They mixed in pop culture like Dick Tracy or  Star Wars.


Hoyt also developed word games for Pat Sajak`s brand and then his own  creation, Word Winder, where players aim to string words all the way across  the board.


Word Winder began over beers at an English pub on Chicago`s north side.   Hoyt says only that it sold tens of thousands of copies for about 20 bucks  each.  There was also a book and an app.


HOYT:  People have to work together.


GRIFFETH:  The giant classroom version?  That was suggested by an Illinois  school teacher.  And since then, Hoyt`s education foundation has worked  with teachers who often used it as a teaching tool.


HOYT:  Teachers have basically demanded that we do this, because they`re  not taking no for an answer.  And the kids just love it.  So, now, we have  to do this.


KIDS:  I love Word Winder!
(END VIDEOTAPE)


GRIFFETH:  And joining us once again from Chicago is America`s wordsmith,  David Hoyt.  


David, good to see you.  Thanks for joining us again tonight.  


HOYT:  Thank you for having me.  


GRIFFETH:  We should point out, by the way, that anybody`s looking for the  Word Winder board game, it`s out of production at the moment, right?  


HOYT:  It is.  We are revamping the board game, so hopefully it will be  back soon.  


GRIFFETH:  I always said that anybody that works as a floor trader is  highly intelligent, and you are intellectually restless, and you certainly  fit that mold.  You have been able to just take opportunity after  opportunity after opportunity.  
Where does this go now?  I mean, you are working with libraries and other  educational institutions, right?  


HOYT:  Yes.  When I first invented Word Winder or co-invented Word Winder,  you know, the goal was to make a lot of money and then do some cool things.   And what happened was is we realized just how hard it is to make a game.  


And what happened was that we changed our focus.  Once we started working  with kids in schools and libraries, just I loved it.  Like I love working  with kids, and I didn`t even know it.  


So, we started the David L. Hoyt Education Foundation.  My wife, Claire, is  the director of it.  And now, what`s happening is we are meeting a whole  bunch of different people who are coming into our lives who want to help  us, and, you know, it`s taken us down a different path but I love the path.   I`m very excited to be a part of it.  


HERERA:  What are you hearing from teachers or what did you see from  teachers when you first put the game into the classroom that made you want  to go down that path?  


HOYT:  It`s a collaborative game.  Kids have to work together.  We`ve  gotten feedback from teachers and librarians that was just off the charts.   I mean, some of them say it`s the best game of its kind.  They all want it.  
But what we didn`t realize was just how difficult it was to go into  business and, you know, get the game made, get it sold.  It was just a much  bigger undertaking than we realized.  


And I — I`m the kind of guy, I like to do everything myself.  This is  something I cannot do myself, and now I want to get as much help as  possible.  


GRIFFETH:  My wife is a big fan of the Jumble.  She does it every single  morning.  She will be thrilled to know I got to talk to you tonight.  


Do you still get up at 4:00 a.m. and work those things out?  I mean, where  do those ideas come from?  


HOYT:  I do get up at 4:00 a.m.  In fact, if I`m working at 4:00 a.m., I`m  late.  I feel like I`m up about 3:30 now.  


HERERA:  Wow.


HOYT:  But, you know, the ideas for the Jumble I feel like come from life.   I`ll be walking down the street and get an idea.  But the amazing thing is,  you know, I come up with the puzzle part and the words, but Jeff Knurek`s  artwork is just incredible.  He is just getting better and better.  
So, I have a fun job of suggesting a, you know, cartoon to Jeff, and every  time I get it back, it just blows my mind how great it is.  So he`s a great  partner to work with.  


HERERA:  You also have a game that you`re developing around golf at this  point, which apparently is your passion, but it`s on hold a little bit  because of the tariff situation?  


HOYT:  Yes.  Yes, here is the fast version of this.  I teamed up with PGA  teaching pro Don Parker, who is also a former teacher in school, and he and  I took the underlying giant Word Winder game play and we kind of turned it  into golf words.  


And it`s incredible.  The feedback we are getting is just amazing.  But I  had learned so much, you know, going through the process of trying to  develop giant Word Winder that I knew we needed some help.  


Rather than try to do this myself, we teamed up with Diane Bergen, who is  the former United Airlines executive, and she has done an amazing job of  getting this thing prototyped and tested and made, but it is all being made  in China and everything is a little bit on hold right now.  


GRIFFETH:  Yes.  You got to work through those once in a while as well as  an entrepreneur.  


David Hoyt, good to see you again.  Thanks for joining us tonight.  


HOYT:  You`re very welcome.  Thank you.  


HERERA:  Still ahead, a labor shortage of pilots and the push to get more  women to take flight.  
(MUSIC)


GRIFFETH:  Over the next two decades, it is estimated that hundreds of  thousands of pilots will be needed worldwide and many of the major airlines  are making their pitch to have women be the leaders in the cockpit.  


Jane Wells has that story for us tonight from Anchorage, Alaska.  
(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)


JANE WELLS, NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT CORRESPONDENT:  On an airstrip in  Anchorage, Alaska, is one of the top flight schools in the country, owned  and operated by a woman who started a flight school after the one she was  working at didn`t like her style.  


JAMIE PATTERSON-SIMES, SKYTREK ALASKA FLIGHT TRAINING OWNER:  I sold my car  for $8,000 and I renovated this building, and I had people knocking on my  door from day one.  


WELLS:  Jamie Patterson-Sims of SkyTrek Alaska has been recognized as an  FAA gold seal flight instructor.  Yet women in the cockpit remain an  oddity.  Only about 6 percent of the pilot force at the top three airlines  are female.


And that surprises Beverley Bass, hired by American Airlines in 1976 and  its first female captain.  


BEVERLEY BASS, FORMER AMERICAN AIRLINES CAPTAIN:  You know, we talked about  that all the time and I think for the most part, women are just still not  aware that that is a job opportunity that is available to them.  


WELLS:  Boeing (NYSE:BA) estimates the global aviation industry will need  800,000 new pilots over the next 20 years.  Men like Jesse Hefely and women  like Madisen Minich, both taking lessons in anchorage with a female  instructor.  


JESSE HEFELY, STUDENT PILOT:  She doesn`t let me get away with anything,  which I appreciate.  


MADISEN MINICH, STUDENT PILOT:  My mom runs a huge corporation up here, so  I`m super used to women telling me what to do.  


WELLS:  All three major U.S. airlines have stepped up pilot recruiting,  targeting women specifically with financial aid for flight school.  And  this is an industry with no gender pay gap.  Pay is based purely on things  like the type of aircraft flown.  


But surveys by Embry Riddle suggest passengers still are not as comfortable  with women in the cockpit as men.  


And Beverley Bass who has seen it all says women pilots are no better or  worse than men, but they can multitask.  


BASS:  I know that I could cook dinner, feed a baby and talk on the  telephone all at the same time.  


WELLS:  She hopes a new generation of women will love flying as much as she  has, each with her own favorite part of the experience.  


MINICH:  Probably when the wheels lift off.  When you first rotate the  plane and you just kind of hover for a second, it is just the coolest  feeling ever.  


WELLS:  For NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT, I`m Jane Wells in Anchorage, Alaska.  
(END VIDEOTAPE)


HERERA:  There`s a program out of Syracuse University that`s described as a  business boot camp.  Its goal is to help female veterans become  entrepreneurs.  


Contessa Brewer has more on getting from the battlefield to the board room.  
(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)


CONTESSA BREWER, NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT CORRESPONDENT:  Natasha Norie  Standard spent 20 years in the Army.  


NATASHA NORIE STANDARD, NORIE SHOES FOUNDER:  I had opportunities to be a  commander.  I was airborne.  I worked on Special Operations.  I supported  Special Operations around the world.  


BREWER:  When she retired, with all of her skills and logistics and  management, she took a job at Williams Sonoma.  
There were some hurdles.  


STANDARD:  It was the lack of camaraderie, lack of values.  You know,  civilian values are different than military values.  


BREWER:  After seven months, she quit.  Though she landed an interview at  Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Norie Standard opted to start her own business,  shoes.  


STANDARD:  I remembered how much I loved shoes from being stationed in  Italy.  


BREWER:  To get her shoe business off the ground, she needed a boot camp,  one designed especially for entrepreneurs and especially for veterans.  She  found it here at Syracuse University.  With an institute for veterans and  military families, Syracuse is tackling the challenge of transitioning from  the armed forces to civilian life.  
For women, that can be especially challenging.  


MAUREEN CASEY, SU INSTITUTE FOR VETERANS AND MILITARY FAMILIES:  Getting  their transition right is core to ensuring long term employability and  financial independence.  


BREWER:  Maureen Casey testified before Congress about the problem.  Women  vet spend longing looking for work, make 30 percent less than their male  counterparts and may struggle in a corporate environment.  


CASEY:  We have seen an uptick in the number of women that are drawn toward  entrepreneurship programs, running counter to the trend where we`ve seen a  decrease in veterans going into entrepreneurship.  


BREWER:  With lessons on business strategy, marketing, pitching to venture  capitalists, the boot camp has been so successful, it`s been duplicated at  eight other universities, graduating 2,000.  Another program aimed  specifically at helping women vets with small business skills has seen  3,000 graduates, 65 percent of whom started their own business, 90 percent  of those are still operating.  


For Derica Davis, the coaching is invaluable in growing her health and  wellness business.  


DERICA DAVIS, LEIZURE LIVING FOUNDER:  These programs and the experience  that you get in the military prepares you to be up for the challenges, and,  you know, no matter what, you can keep persevering.  
BREWER:  Starbucks` former CEO Howard Schultz gave $7.5 million to help  fund this effort and corporate partners include J.P. Morgan Chase, PepsiCo,  Walmart, Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT), Prudential, the private sector  stepping up to help veterans put their best feet forward.  
In Syracuse, Contessa Brewer, NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT.
(END VIDEOTAPE)


GRIFFETH:  And coming up, what one state is doing to recruit younger  workers.  
(MUSIC)


HERERA:  One place looking for workers is Vermont.  The state is offering  incentives to help lure people to live and work there.  One goal is to  bring in younger workers.  


Kate Rogers (NYSE:ROG) is on the job in Burlington.  
(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)


KATE ROGERS, NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT CORRESPONDENT:  For Collin Palkovitz  remote work means freedom.  


COLLIN PALKOVITZ, REMOTE WORKER:  I really value working remotely, just  innately.  It enables me to be wherever I want to be and to have my family  be with me in a setting that we choose and a location and a culture that we  choose.  


ROGERS:  The 37-year old has worked remotely for the better part of his  career with Pure Charity, a technology nonprofit.  


He and his family were based outside of Los Angeles but decided they wanted  to buy a home and own some land.  So they packed up their two kids and dog  into an RV and drove 25,000 miles across the country for six months,  looking for the perfect place to plant roots.  They ended up in Vermont  this past January.  


Palkovitz took advantage of the state`s new remote worker grant program  which offers incentives of up to $10,000 to workers who do the majority of  their work remotely, to keep their jobs and move to Vermont.  Palkovitz  says he got some $4,500 reimbursed for his move.  


State officials say this is a way to attract a new and potentially younger  tax base in the face of an aging population that`s slowly growing in a  historically tight labor market. 

 
In fact, Fitch Ratings recently downgraded the state in part over age  demographics.  


SEN. MICHAEL SIROTKIN (D), VERMONT:  We have incredibly low unemployment.   We hear from the business community all the time that they`re looking for  workers and skilled workers.  And this seems to be one small piece of the  puzzle to try and get new people to come to our state.  


ROGERS:  So far, nearly 60 remote workers have taken advantage of the  program with an average age of 38, an average grant of around $3,800.  Come  January, a new phase of the program will begin — new worker grants.  This  will offer up to $7,500 for out-of-state residents to relocate to Vermont  and work for companies based in the state like this Darn Tough Vermont.   The sock manufacturer is experiencing record growth but needs workers to  keep up.  


BROOKE KAPLAN, DARN TOUGH VERMONT:  We`re going to redouble our workforce  in a matter of years and we really need to work in partner with the state  to get those workers.  


ROGERS:  For Palkovitz who now lives on 64 acres in Pawlet, on the border  of New York state, with his family, the grant program presented the  opportunity to make a needed change.  


PALKOVITZ:  This is something that we`ve always dreamed of doing, is living  out on a lot of land.  


ROGERS:  For NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT, I`m Kate Rogers (NYSE:ROG) in  Burlington, Vermont.  
(END VIDEOTAPE)


HERERA:  Thanks for watching this special edition of NIGHTLY BUSINESS  REPORT.  I`m Sue Herera.  


GRIFFETH:  I`m Bill Griffeth.  Have a great evening.  We`ll see you  tomorrow.
