DCG-Owned Luno Cuts Staff by 35%
"We have a very wintry mix of crypto stories out here today, starting with some layoff news from will. What do you got? That's right, global crypto exchange Luna is laying off about 35% of its staff, part of Barry silbert's DCG empire. It has offices in Singapore, London, and elsewhere around the globe. This is pretty bad news. Just adding more to the layoff story that we've been covering for quite a while. There's been about 29,000 layoffs according to coin desks own numbers since the beginning of the crypto bear market earlier last year. So just more numbers in terms of headcount, number seems to be a bit all over the place. Some numbers showing that Luna has about 900 employees and now trim about 300 staff, others showing that there's about 600 employees in trimming down about 200 SaaS. So we don't quite know for sure about 35% is a pretty wide margin. Luno has about 10 million different users around the globe, and they service different crypto assets via its exchange product. Of course, this is just part of DCG empire. They also own coin desk, genesis, foundry, and a few other firms such as grayscale. Zack going through the story over to you more bad news to begin the week. Yeah, for sure, man. This is the story about C 5 despite, you know, some pump and token prices and maybe some excitement, maybe a bit of macro tailwinds, still cfi is trimming headcount quite significantly. So I think there's the secular issue here, right? We saw that graphic with all the exchanges that are laying off significant chunks of their workforce. And then there's the specifics as it relates to DCG, which is in hot water, a relative to genesis, filing for bankruptcy last week, and potentially some of those dominoes falling and spilling over into some of their other assets. So Luna here is got a pinch by both those factors. And as a result, you're seeing significant job cuts announced by this exchange. So that to me is where Luna finds itself. It's pretty bleak and it adds to that really big number 29. Maybe 30,000 crypto jobs cut since April that coin desk is doing a good job keeping a running tally on.

Just before Christmas, the stalemate between a major insurance carrier and the Everett clinic ended, but not for Medicare advantage users, northwest news radio's Brian Calvert explains a man named Mel tells the Everett Harold he tried to get care recently for his wife, but they every clinic refused to see her, and instead handed them a list of other providers that accepted their plan. The agreement between regents and Optum, the parent company of the Everett clinic cover most regular subscribers, but regent's Medicare advantage users aren't covered. That agreement is still under discussion, depending on who you ask there are a variety of reactions. Some say there's some rule breaking going on here. We're still technically in a federal public health emergency, meaning Medicare advantage plans are supposed to be honored at at least the out of network rate. The Everett clinic tells the Herald it's trying to honor all existing appointments and regent states its dismayed hearing that its advantage members are having trouble. Yet the company has yet to settle a Medicare advantage coverage agreement with Optum operators of the Everett clinic and the polyclinic. Brian Calvert, northwest news radio, and it disagreement between the Everett clinic and a second insurance company has led to a lawsuit regents sued after the clinic bought smaller practices and began charging the insurance company the same higher reimbursement rate that was collecting at its main campus. While it has yet to be settled, attorney Emily Bryce tells the Herald that the lawsuit quote lifts the curtain on what's behind some of the cost increases and adds that, quote, if the courts and insurance companies can't stop price increases, then who can.

There's another sign that labor demand in the U.S. may be starting to moderate. Unemployment applications rose more than expected last week by 29,000 this after the Labor Department said that the number of available jobs in August decreased by a million. This as the return to the office is waning or ebbing, let's say, nationwide last week was the second straight week. Where office occupancy barely budged after shooting up right after Labor Day. For more on the labor market in the future of work, I want to bring in Fran, katsuda, Cisco, executive vice president and chief people policy and purpose officer Fran, it's great to have you back with us. So it's been called the great resignation. Now we're hearing the great realignment we're hearing about quiet quitting, what in your view is actually happening within the workforce. Thank you, Emily. I'm so glad to be with you. I think what we're talking about is an amazing opportunity to really think about work. I think sometimes when we talk about this phase, we're so focused on whether people are working from home or from the office, that we don't look at this opportunity from a future of work perspective. As you know at Cisco, we have worked hybrid actually before the pandemic. We've had a lot of flexibility. And what we see at this moment is that one of the most critical elements about work is inclusion and flexibility and really understanding there isn't a one size fits all to the amazing work that we have to do. And if we're able to intersect flexibility with the work and innovation and connection that we're building, it can be an amazing opportunity and not something to dread. So give me some specifics about how Cisco is changing its strategy now. We're coming out of the pandemic, but it's hard to know where new normal is really going to be. Yeah, so the first thing that I would say is I think all companies are still learning and evolving. And the way that we're handling this at Cisco is in a very decentralized way. We've asked every leader at Cisco to really work with their team to figure out against the backdrop of the work and how people are at their best to make arrangements and for some people Emily, that means that maybe they're coming in once or twice a week, sometimes it's a little bit more. But because from a Cisco perspective, we have been doing this for so long, what we can see is there's amazing opportunities we see that career trajectory for people regardless of where they're working can be equal. And we also see another opportunity from a Cisco perspective, which is really all about the tech. What we see from our customers is they want to have an experience for their people that is similar whether they're sitting in the office or sitting at home. And I think the other interesting thing right now is that we're seeing inclusion really intersect technology in a very different way where the tech is working harder to make sure that every person is pulled into a meeting, innovation, a brainstorming session on a whiteboard. And I think that's going to be critical for all companies moving forward. While that's certainly an opportunity for Cisco's WebEx, I'm curious for your take on San Francisco's downtown, which still hasn't recovered from the pandemic. And it seems to be coming back much more slowly than other U.S. cities. Do you think it ever will be the same? And what does that mean for tech culture? I don't think it will be the same. And I think that's part of the problem. I think that a lot of companies are stepping into this wanting to go back and what we're realizing at Cisco is that we have to invite our people back into the office right now, Emily, we're talking about our leaders as having a new role, which is these event managers that are really thinking about that connection. I think the amazing thing is that all companies want the connection. They want to have the culture, but asking people to come in and sit on their own while they do their video calls or their emails just doesn't make sense to our people. And so I think it's going to be really the focus on the anniversary celebration. The brainstorming session may be the community give back that will bring our people to the office in a different way. And I think we just have to lean into that trend and try new things until we find what works. So as the Silicon Valley kind of standard of office gyms and catered food and onsite laundry, is that era over? Oh, goodness. That's a really tough question. I will tell you that at the moment I don't think those perks are as valuable as they once were. What we're hearing from our people is they want to work in an environment where they can contribute where they can have impact where they can decide on a week to week basis whether or not they're coming in. And so I do think there's going to be a new set of benefits and perks that are more meaningful to our people. It's interesting, Emily, because when I talk to my peers across industries and for those companies that are mandating that their people come back, they're sharing that their people are still not coming back. And so it's not these perks that will bring them back. I think it's going to be one another. It's going to be teams and really having a career that fits your goals. So in a recession, typically if the employers who have the upper hand, would you say that now as we go into a macroeconomic downturn or is this time different? We've got about a minute left. So I would still say that the individual has a tremendous amount of power in this environment. If I look like at an area like security, we know that 700,000 roles are still open. And that means that companies are continued to be flexible. They're going to be thoughtful. I think at this moment, I would still say that the individual has the power, but I do believe that we're going to see some more balance as we move forward. All right, bran katsuda executive vice president of Cisco friend, good to have you back with us. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the changing lay of the land.

Democrat Mayor Insists First Class Airfare Necessary for Her 'Safety'
"Here in New Orleans. The Democrat mayor in New Orleans is refusing, refusing saying she's not going to reimburse the city. The 29,000 in change dollars that she spent upgrading her flights to first or business class because it's all for her safety. Apparently, as a black woman, she can't fly coach because that would not be safe. I kid do not. This is actually what she said. Which is why I say we're at that tipping point, right? Evan entitlement. But let me back up. So her name is latoya. Cantrell, and she's the mayor there in New Orleans, and she told reporters last week she was just not going to pay it back. She's not paying a lot of money, right? There was some $18,000 first class trip to France over the summer, which was just for some sort of ceremony to design some renew min of an agreement that they had with some little seaside tongue. Am I supposed to go right in the summer, especially when you book an $18,000 ticket on taxpayers dime? Anyway, she's not paying it back and she's telling the local media this, according to the New Orleans advocate and times paper down there, I'm going to quote now from WWL, one of the stations, all expenses incurred doing business on behalf of the city of New Orleans will not be reimbursed to the city of New Orleans. That may be seen as kind of a problem, especially given that the city of New Orleans actually has a policy for this. Employees are required to purchase, I'm going to quote here the lowest airfare available. This is according to the policy, which WWL dug up, employees who choose an upgrade from code to economy or business class flights are solely responsible to policy says for the difference in cost. Any reconciliation of travel expenses that result in overpayment by the city would require that the employee reimbursed the city within 20 business days, but she can't do it because
Newt Gingrich: Think About What the FBI Will Do to You
"Gingrich, one of our great American statesman. I've never heard Newt Gingrich I was watching his interview last night on Fox News. I have never seen him. So angry. I think you remember the sandy Berger incident. He went into the national archives and came out with those documents in his pants and his socks and anywhere he can stick them. Look, there's clearly a double standard. But I think what's even more troubling. And whatever American, whether you're Democrat, Republican, doesn't matter. Liberal conservative, it doesn't matter. If 30 FBI agents can take over the house of a former president of the United States and probable candidate for president, what can they do to you? And when you look at the Democrats who are trying to add 85,000 IRS agents to the already existing 77,000, that would mean a 162,000 IRS agents compared, for example, to 29,000 people that we have on the border trying to control the border. But the purpose of it simple. They want to control you. These raids, the kind of thing you talked about earlier with taking people off an airplane and chains, having people, a guy standing outside at three in the morning in his pajamas. These things are all designed to intimidate if this government can get away with third world tactics of worthy of Venezuela or the East German Stasi or Zimbabwe under Mugabe. If that's the future, then the constitution has a working document has ceased to exist.

"Is Bob Grant, sitting in For Dennis Going to go right back to the phone calls. We're going to talk to Doug in Ewing, New Jersey, Doug, Thanks for calling the Dennis Prager show. Go right ahead. Hey, Good afternoon. They had a commentary dogs to tell people kneel on Google And thanks for the phone call. I appreciate it. Let's move on to, uh About Stephen Reno, Nevada. Steve, You are on the Dennis Prager shall go right ahead. Bob. Thank you so much for your time. I couldn't agree with your point more about Afghanistan being less shape. Um, you know, it makes my blood boil not to call our enemy and enemy Pakistan as an enemy of the United States. Pakistan harbored Osama bin Laden, Pakistan in their intelligence services, formulated, uh, the Taliban. One point reconstituted Caliban to point out. And you know that's one point and I'd like to get your reaction to that Why? It's not being talked about more. Secondly. It seems like India only true partner in the region and the United States have delegated caretaking of anti terrorism activity, Basically to the Pakistanis, and there I see Intelligence service. Don't think that worked out too Well, pre 9 11. It's not going to work out again. And right now as we speak, we have remnants of the northern Alliance. So we're our true partners. Fighting and dying in the pants. Sure, Valley and I don't want to Monday morning quarterback. But why aren't we throwing our weight behind people that are moderates in the region where we could at least have a foothold? I think the biggest mistake the United States makes in Afghanistan. I Iraq and even Vietnam. We cannot hold the territory. Once we fight the battle, the greatest fighting the battle, so we don't have the support of the people from an ethnic standpoint, so I think having something of something and nothing of nothing. We look at this monolith Stickley and we think that we can go in and unify the whole country. We forget that Afghanistan is a tribally diverse country. So I'll leave it there. I just wanted to get your reaction. Okay. Well, you make some great points in your spot on and thank you for the phone call Steve about, uh, you know about you said ethnically, I would probably call it culturally the cultural differences in the tribal differences in the way Afghanistan. Is made up. It means it's never going to be, you know, a place where we can nation build. It's never going to be a democratic government or democracy that we can help install there. You it's even harder there than it was in Iraq to try to do. Um, So you're right. I think we do need to pull through our support behind some of the more moderates in the region. But importantly, I think we need to be in the region. Because we're never going to. We're never going to as much as we would like to try to put together a force that's going to allow a real democratic government to be, you know, installed or elected to make a Democratic would have to be elected. Um and and to actually grow and develop to a point over the course of decades that were not needed there to provide security forces for it's just never going to work that way. So for me, I think we need to acknowledge the fact There are regions of the world in which we are going to be very, very vulnerable. If we don't have a military president, a strong military presence, and I think that would be one of them. This is one of them where I think we stay. We've obviously of allies in Israel. We have allies in India as you point out, and you know what we need to do is Make sure that we have a strong enough force there. I looked it up before the break during the break. Latin 2018 is the last count that I have. We have 29,000 troops. State active and reserve in South Korea. We haven't been at war with Korea for 50 years of almost 60 years. Admittedly, there was never a result. It was a ceasefire in our Maciste, but not a not a declaration of victory or surrender. But anyway, we're not fighting with the North Koreans, but were there in case we have to We're not fighting, you know with China, but we are in. You know, the the Pacific region in Japan. In case we have to. We're not fighting Russia. But we are in Germany and in other places around Europe because we have to in case we have to I don't understand why we cannot do the same thing as far as trusting Pakistan, Republican and Democrat presidents alike. Have made the mistake of trusting the Pakistanis and treating them as if they're allies. They are not our allies. They are absolutely responsible for the Taliban for the resurgence thereof for housing them when they were run out of Afghanistan when we went in in October, November of 2001 And to think that their allies now is is a mistake on our part. That could be very, very costly. And you're right. They harbored Osama bin Laden proclaiming they didn't know he was in Islamabad. Yeah, you did. They knew exactly what was going on, and we need to treat them as such. Very, very good phone call, my friend. I know you just had a lot of stuff You wanted to get out there.

"News rundown. Much of the pandemics. Collateral impact is transformed Our world from health concerns, remote work, Consumer trust, all translating to a lasting economic impact. In a teacher student Virtual town hall hosted by the Federal Reserve Board, Federal chair Jerome Powell acknowledge the very real shift. Only time will tell how lasting these changes will be. But I think we know that we're not simply going back to the economy we had before the pandemic, but it'll take time to see exactly what the changes will be this past week jobless claims ended at 348,000. That's a decline of 29,000 from a week before the last time claims were this low was in March of 2020 just when restrictions hit at the start of the pandemic. There are about six million fewer employed Americans then before the pandemic, and now we've seen another month of record high numbers of employees quitting at the same time jobless claims hit a low in the month of August. So why are these trends happening? At the same time? You would think that there would be that they're kind of conflicting it away because we're just coming off of a period of high unemployment during the pandemic. Jeanne Bossi is associate editor at The Wall Street Journal. I think that when job recruiting picks up as it has robustly, and you have the kind of job numbers that we have seen recently, 943,000 people employed new jobs in July. That was really substantial unemployment rate down to 5.4%, even though that doesn't really count. The unemployed quite accurately, because there's some people who have left the employment forces probably millions of people that still have not recovered from the pandemic. We still have a deficit of job growth by a few million. Nonetheless, you see people quitting, and the reason for that is that when job growth picks up and hiring becomes competitive, people think about Make it a change and taking a new job, something that they've been thinking about. Maybe for a few years. Uh, and maybe the pandemic gave them a chance to really reflect on it. They see a career change opportunity or or better opportunity someplace else. So that's why you see the quitting numbers rising. So 22 million Americans at some point in the last year where unemployed What impact does that have on our economy, regardless of if they've re entered the workforce now Well, it really drag on the economy. And it's created a lot of these choke points in our supply chain because a lot of factories closed down here and abroad, and it resulted in this inability of manufacturers in the United States to ramp up as fast as they wanted to. And then that Created shortages and that kind of helps for inflation. There was some numbers last month that were also positive in this regard in that industrial output was up 0.9% just shy of 1%. That's kind of suggests that some of those disjuncture czar working themselves out and industrial output manufacturing operations, for example, are able to grow without hindrance. So the unemployment problem contributed to the destruction as we're seeing now, which contributed to inflation, which contributed to higher food prices and higher prices in general, that the consumer is encountering and it also, you know, it also probably resulted in Some permanent damage to various demographic groups in the United States. Older workers who may have left the job and are now because they're a bit older, maybe having a harder time finding a job and as a result have become discouraged and have left job seeking, as a result, use a lot of talent that way. So what about the people who have re enter the labour market? How much has the market changed at least financially? And what are these new employees expecting to get them in the door? And how our business is reacting to that? Yes. So the what We see, in part is businesses really hungry for new employees? And over the last few months we've talked about you know some of the incentive that new job applicants have been getting Signing bonuses. Tuition offers all sorts of Extras, everybody from truck drivers to white collar workers as employers scrambled to get back on their feet after getting really knocked sideways by the pandemic. And you're probably going to see that continuing for a while. Those were really substantial numbers in July, and the expectation is that it's going to be robust economic growth this year. We saw very substantial numbers in the first half of this year. Now, all that said. It really depends on one major factor. Um, it's not government stimulus, which has has indeed pushed consumer spending Those checks that people god and the fact that they were spending them and that caused retailers to have to hire very quickly. It's not gonna be government spending so much. It's not going to be the organic growth. I think it's going to be the coronavirus Delta variant. Which is really now beginning to affect the economy. You're starting to see. Consumers after Really indulging in some pent up demand. Spending over the last several months begin to pull in their horns a bit. We saw retail sales fall 1.1% in July from the previous month, June remind you this is all have to be taken in context. That number is for July is still almost 18% above February, 2020 before the pandemic really hit the economy, so it's a big number still, but it's below June and you're seeing confidence numbers that are measured by the University of Michigan drop off in August as the Delta variant Spread, and consumers began to be concerned. So I think that the the big economic mission for the Biden administration is to get more people vaccinated to address the misinformation problem that's keeping people from getting Vaccinated and to try more successfully to bring the infection rate to heal. Okay. And as we look, of course, at the Delta variant, a lot of businesses are now extending were returned to work dates or they're bringing back restrictions. So how do you quantify what impact this has on our country's economy? Especially since this came just as so many people were hoping that we were nearing the end. Yes, that's right. There were so many pluses in the numbers. You know, you've pointed out the job growth numbers and even the retail sales numbers, you know, not bad compared to pre pandemic, but it is now already beginning to make itself evident. In consumer sales. You're seeing retailers say, you know, people are getting more cautious. The concern that travel is going to tail off as people ask themselves, okay? I'm not vaccinated. I'm really exposed as people are who aren't vaccinated. My kids are going back to school. I've got kids under 12, and they don't have a vaccine yet for for Children. I'm nervous about that. Do I put him in school? Do I not? There's there's a lot of anxiety that Re emerged in the consumer base, and that's causing people to pull in their spending again. Um, now it's early. We'll have to see how much it's affected. It affects spending. But the expectation of health authorities is that the numbers that we're seeing out of the coronavirus infection rate and the case rate per day are going to get worse as schools to open and this very infectious variant affects More people, kids and families, and that will probably make for a more conservative consumer as the year progresses, So we're looking at some of the areas now that are affected in person shopping, for example, and leisure spending, that is all down. So do you think that suggests a shift to rely on e commerce? And so many people have been relying on that for the last year or as you mentioned? Do you think this is specifically because of the Delta? Very It and people struggling with the idea. Of returning and being around strangers once again. Well, it's probably both,.

"Stars Joining me right now Marshall Field's CEO of California, Greentree, Thanks for stopping by pleasure, Believe me, so this is fun. We get to talk about the cannabis industry. First guest I've had on that has been a part of this industry, so I've got a whole lot of questions for you. Let's start with your business. Tell us about California Green Tree California Green Tree is a is a company. Set up for cultivation. We grow and we'll have three different facilities will average about 29,000 square feet, and we'll grow an average of £15,000 per year per facility. All different strains and for all different purposes and all different I would say all different strength. A lot of the the dispensaries always like something a little different. They're all different names. They've given him all different names through the years, so Some are a little stronger than others. And everybody has their idea of what they like. And what what happened? Tichy level they want to buy right, so you're actually growing the cannabis, So you're one part of the industry before we started. You shared that If you're on the business side of the cannabis industry, there's kind of three different parts to it. Can you share with those three parts of the beginning? Part of it is the cultivation side of it. I am the then you have the marketing and then you have the sales. Which of these dispensaries? We're gonna be part of the cultivation side of it. We're gonna be the grower. And then there is they come in January 2018. They're going to be a distribution side of it, and then the the actual dispensary side of it, So there'll be three different parts to it, and they all could be working together. The industry now is gonna be highly regulated As of January. 2000 and 18. Everything has to be lab tested, and everything has to pass a lab test. So there's no pesticides that can show up in lab before Otherwise the dispensary can't buy it. Around the shelves, and we're gonna be growing all organic, no pesticides whatsoever because, of course, right now it's legal for medical use, but then it will be legal for recreational use. Come January, 2018, So tell me a little bit more about how the industry is now. And word's going given this change in California. You know, today you need to have a medical card and that allows you to go into dispensary and to purchase the cannabis is not as much as you want. There is a limit. I have approximately announcer too. But come to anywhere. The law's gonna change you're gonna buy combined the Medical and the recreational so you basically can walk in the door and by your amount that you really want to have. There's a limit to. I think it's gonna be three ounces will be your maximum per transaction. And the pricing will be a little bit different. The taxes will be a little bit different if you're on a medical card, and you're paying a little bit less in tax, fearing the recreational side to pay a little bit more in Texas to the state of California, and right now, you're preparing for that January day, right? You're not yet providing cannabis for the distributor's Yes, we'll have three facilities up and running. And we will be providing the cannabis to right now. Legal dispensaries. There's 2700 legal dispensaries in the state of California. We think there's another 2700 Illegal dispensaries that are not license, But come January. You have to have your license. Otherwise you won't be able to stay open. So how did you get into this business? It's a long story, but we started take the cliff notes. Yeah, we started about a year ago and we went, We were selling a a dispensary and we realized Wow, This is a terrific business for people to get into, and we started. We looked at it. We said, you know what we think we could do very, very well is actually do the cultivation side of it. We looked at the numbers. We looked at the quality. We looked at our abilities to be able to develop it. I'm also a contract the developer investment bankers, So this was easy for me to do. Yes. So take us behind the scenes. I got to see the images and I'm sure we'll show video but really describe to me. What does it look like? And to create this space where you're growing cannabis? It looks like a large Barden. With hundreds and hundreds of plants growing all at the same time, and they set up a little differently. They have the a section of it where you're just starting to grow. Where the plant your little bitty things about three or four inches, then have another section where they're about 18 inches, and then you have the large room that actually has were the majority the plants and that's called the flower room. You might have a couple 1000 fans in there. Wow. Okay, And I know that you grow different types of stranded best different strains. I guess that's what you say. And and that. Is reflective of how much teach see how potent it is. So tell me a little bit about this science behind what goes into creating different times of cannabis plant well over the years, they had different strains that came from Jamaica and Africa. In California and humble County and Washington, and they started developing these these strains and giving them names and they are all a little different potency. And we're very interesting As time went on. They started mixing the different strains to create a very higher, much higher level of the THC. And that's really that's the important stuff that people like to Get to use that the higher THC, the stronger it becomes so, and some people think it's too high, so they like to go with the certain strains that have a lower th ceiling. So you're already anticipating this and you're creating a brand that you will sell called Happy Brands Very sitting, and so you're already anticipating that people will be going for recreational use for different purposes. So tell me a little bit about the research you did about what you think your customers will want and what you provide. Eating them to meet those needs. You know each customer we're talking about this earlier that I was in the dispensary, and I was standing next to a grandmother and a granddaughter, and they were both ask you for something a little bit different. They were asking for something that would help her sleep and the then the granddaughter was looking for something that would take have a little bit more sun attached to it. So the grandma was looking for something a little bit easier. It'll lessen the THC level. And the granddaughter was looking for something a little bit more boat, but they were there for the same reason. And the happy brand.

"29,000" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"And we've been talking about our financial goals for 2021. Matt Damon, I gotta question What do you have is a personal goal for 2021? Well, we'll see If it happens, it got postponed, But a couple years ago, I did the 29. To nine hike where you have to hike a mountain over and over and tell you basically height from sea level all the way to Everest. So you hike basically 29,000 ft In a matter of, you know, 36 hours. That's the goal s O. I had done that in Utah. Ah, buddy of mine didn't finish and he was like I want to do this and I said, I'll do it again with you. And so we signed up for the event in Idaho. And that got canceled in 2020. So it's on for 2021. We'll see if it happens, but that's my goal. That's where I'll be spending some time on the treadmill and running and doing some of those things getting prepared toe like a mountain multiple times. You know, I'm I grew up playing soccer. I love soccer. But a few years ago I tore my Achilles and I haven't played since then. And so this Last year in 2021 of my goals was to get in better shape so I could get back to playing soccer and I'm part of the way there. I lost about £22. And now I'm doing some some cardio to get myself prepared to get back to play soccer, so that that's my goal for 2021 is to get back out there on the field plan. One of the sport's I love. This isn't fair because y'all are gonna get out there and get active and I'm going to go climb a mountain and I was going to say I just want to build a shelf for my basement way need to work on your ability to set goals and I was like, Well, whatever your goal, isn't it fits with your finances both Damon and that they can help you out on a great team of acute wealth advisors are standing by now Give me a call on 4806 a doe 6868, Of course, the website success and the new retirement dot com and, you know, we get excited when we see Nice bumping our 401 K balance. But economist once said, if you want excitement, go to Vegas because investing should be more like watching paint dry guys. What do you tell your clients by the amount of risk they assume when they invest in the stock market? Well, I got a I got a problem with that guy saying my career is like watching paint dry. It's like no. I mean, what he's trying to say is when you're investing in the stock market, you are not speculating and so investments. Obviously you can have times where the markets on a roll and it's going up. You're invested for the long term. And so if you're if you're investing like a day trader where you're trying to pick the next I P o or the next stop. That's gonna pop. You know, it's going to be like Vegas where you're gonna have those euphoria moments and you're also gonna have those heartbreak moments where you lose every lost everything. And that's not typically what people are doing with their retirement dollars. Most of our clients they walk into there, and they said, Look, I worked hard for this. I want to have this position properly. I wanted to give me good, solid growth. And here's the thing. The standard withdrawal rate. Most people tell you, you look, you should take about 3 to 4% out of your accounts every single year in the last forever. Well, if you can consistently grow your accounts by six or 7%, they'll be worth more than what you start with. Even if you're withdrawing 3 to 4% out, and so perhaps you could start withdrawing more. And so when it comes to retirement, if you could get consistent growth of 5678% And make that very consistent with not much volatility that will produce a phenomenal income stream. You'll prepare, produce a awesome retirement. And so what we have you know, when we're sitting down with clients is again it's It's not about trying to be the fastest. You know what the hill It's not about trying to set some records or brag to your friends or talk to your co workers around the water cooler. It's about the consistency of your returns, because that's what's gonna matter. When you're retired. I think one of things that that we do, and that we think is important is something we call it that Value proposition and and and we say to someone, Look, if we can provide value to you, then you're gonna wanna be our client and we're not going to just talk to you about what everyone talks to you about that's returns. Returns is sexy, right? But if you want excitement like you said, go to Vegas. What you really want to understand is how how much risk am I taking to get that return right if I can get if I get two portfolios, and both of them returned 8%, But one of them, does it with half the risk. Well, that's the one that I want, because that's more efficient, right. And then in addition to that How much of my paying and fees for the return and for the risk I'm taking right again. If I can pay half and get the same results, that's what I want. And then the last part of that is is the tax portion of it. Right. How much am I gonna pay in taxes to get that income, and if I can pay less in taxes and get the same income again? My answer is I want the more efficient one. And so that value proposition is what we'll spend our.

Biden has taken lead from Trump in Pennsylvania as vote tally continues
"In the electoral vote Rich Pennsylvania. Former Vice President Joe Biden maintains that nearly 29,000 vote lead over President Trump and his elite of about a half percentage point.

Pennsylvania ballot counting is delayed
"In Pennsylvania, they've announced that Allegheny County is not going to begin counting about 30,000 ballots. Until tomorrow. These systems are just broken. They're just broken. I mean that the possibility of undermining public confidence is so unbelievably high when you delay the count's this way when you're not counting through the night when you are delaying the counts. And obviously it's because of this patchwork of laws that have been created. That's not just on Democrats and Republicans. It was on Republicans in Wisconsin. It's on Republicans to a certain extent in Arizona. A lot of the message that air created here bipartisan message and they require natural cleanup. There's a reason that Florida runs this thing. Really tightly runs. This runs really clean shit when it comes to the voting count. According Crisp Otter. The reason why Allegheny County, which includes Areas that are very democratic and could make up the difference for the four for Joe Biden against Donald Trump in Pennsylvania. Right now, Trump holds a very slim lead in Pennsylvania. The reason that Allegheny County apparently is being delayed is because the ballots in question, according Chris Potter, who's reporter for W say, require special attention. The vast majority of the 29,000 involved situation where a vendor sent the wrong balance voters and then had to reissue new balance with the correct races. Challenges there. Now voters who have to balance one with the wrong race is you have to give those balances special security to make sure that a people don't vote twice and B. If they just send in the old one. They don't vote in races. They are eligible for us. You can't just scan them along with the rest. Other ballots in the pot include those that don't scan for another reason. When a team won't process the amount of the check. You want deposits. You have to bring it into the bank office when ballots required special scrutiny. The county records at the vote through return board whose members are sworn in and for that purpose. The board reviews the results tell it up by election workers after polls closed but also addressed his provisional ballots. Military ballots, etcetera. Board members are said to be sworn in Tomorrow, the Friday after Election Day. Is nothing in the fairy is here. The county's GOP chair is comfortable with the process. This is also not people just taking a day off. The other factors. The county has to wait until Friday for mail in ballots to come in there were postmarked by Election Day. That whole situation was adjudicated by the courts as faras the complaints that that Republicans have about ballots coming in after Election Day, they're not postmarked. Those ballots are in fact being sequestered there being kept separate from the other ballots until if the Supreme Court has to rule on that the Supreme Court will rule on that. As well. There are a lot of rumors out there right now regarding the possibility of voter irregularities and voter fraud. This is exacerbated by the fact that the Trump team is filing some fairly while predicated lawsuits. Apparently there's one lawsuit in Pennsylvania that they just had granted. It was an injunction forcing The trump ballot watchers to be allowed into The balloting areas. So this is it's all a mess. I mean, I think the short story here is is all a mess.
Who is winning the key swing states in the 2020 US election
"We are being told how that there are 50,000 votes left to be counted. Okay? The difference between the president and Joe Biden right now. Since at 19,000. So we have 50,000 votes said Yes. Now they're going to come out of urban populations more than likely. Okay. So again, I'm going to solicit your math. Help. Pull your calculator. Okay. Glad you finished that. Yes. Yes. Here we go. You calculated 50,000 left, huh? What is 80% of 50,000? What 80 was 40,000. It's 40,000. All right. So if if Joe Biden wins 80% of the 50,000 left that gives him 40,000. All right, right. That means the president would win 10,000. So you add 10,000 to his current Margin of 19,000 That's 29,000 that says the president lose by 11,000 votes in Georgia. Exactly. That's yes. And if that happens if that happens here in the next little while The president will bide winds. Yes. So maybe we'll know, By the way, maybe we'll know by noon. Do they do what they want yet? Well in Nevada to with 11,000 are 11 a.m.. You're going to get the tally from Nevada's apparently That's going to happen.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani Claims Hunter Biden's Laptop Has Photos Of Underage Girls
"Mr. Mayor. Rudy Giuliani joins me now, Mr Mary, how you doing this morning? I'm doing Well, how are you? I'm great. I'm excited. Too weak from today. I think we're going to find out. Trump won Maybe even the night before that to be nice. You have made some news, sir. All these stories coming out now about 100 biting hard drive. Email. Democrats have never job. I never denied these. Amy. These e mails were fake. Never said they're fake blah, blah, blah. But you you made the amount you'd explain it that there are now and I don't get this wrong. Photos of underage girls. Maybe naked girls underage on Hunter Biden's hard drive and now an FBI agent that signed a subpoena to take the hard drive, actually, ah focuses and investigates crimes committed against Children. So this is a big deal. Explain what you have so far. Well, there's only a certain that I can explain properly. Ah! I was given the hard drive. By my attorney who got it from the man who was repairing it, and after a long period of time, opened it up, looked at it and basically found evidence. Criminality with regard to Ukraine and China. Basically, there are Very, very clear statements on there. That the money that Hunter Biden was collecting from Ukraine, China Russia. Kazakhstan, Romania. That he was sharing a Toledo had with his father. Even during the time his father was vice president. Which would take this from a conflict of interest case. You a straight out really, really serious bribery case. And those those 100 Biden's words. In a text. You a relative. Complaining about the half that he has to give his father Is also a document there. In which tent in which the Bidens the Biden family meeting, Hunter is on his uncle. Go into business with three major Chinese communist members of Chinese organized crime. Very dangerous people, one of whom is and killed subsequently executed. Uh, and it's a deal where they get $10 million a year. 50% of the profits for making introductions. And Hunter gets a million dollars up front from the Chinese Communist. They also set up the office together. However, when you find the secret document, which is in the in the hard drive, there's a secret document that includes an additional part. It isn't in the official papers. The additional partner gets 10%. Off the overall deal. Then, according to 100 texts, actually gets 50% of what everybody else gets. Oh, he's getting a big chunk. The additional partner is described as 10% for the big guy. I'm reading from the text right now. 10% for the big guy. So now you have to figure out who is the big guy. Go. Pages later, or two Text later. Hunter. Biden is asking for teas for the new office, the first key that he asked for the job, but The second key for Jill. Bye. So he's gonna be in this office of this partnership between the Biden family. In the Chinese communist government, the name of the businesses Hudson West or something. And And finally Now I've been to anonymous Forces What's called who were involved in this deal who have identified the big guy as Joe Biden. And one of them is on the verge of becoming public. I know who they are not at liberty to give you their names, but they have been made known to the FBI and have given statements to the FBI. So basically Basically Basically what you have. Is, um Clear evidence that Biden I was involved. In massive bribery. I think I think it's described this 30 30 years 30 years of bribery, described his people. In the text messages are incredible, breathtaking crimes. In addition to it, there's a photograph section 28 to 29,000 photos that many of them harmless. Some of which Pornographic. Some of which could be described as perverted. And then there was some That, in the words of Hunter Biden's words and the way he describes his activities. Reconstitute. Um, danger to Children. So it was submitted to the Delaware police. Buy me and former Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik. Them to analyze and determine what what exactly is this? There are Pictures of young girls cannot describe exactly how they dressed. But In a way that would be a matter of concern. And there are texts. In which he admits that he's a danger to Children. And then their attacks that make allegations about him that he denies. Even though he admits he's a danger. The Children he denies having taken his clothes off in front of them. Or having face time. The nude. Psychiatrist or one of the young girls since that he did that.
