What Happened To Berlin After the Second World War?
"The end of world war two signaled and unsure future for the defeated germany. Between the alta and potsdam peace conferences it was decided to split germany into four allied zones the eastern part of the country going to the soviet union to control and the western parts going to the united states britain and eventually france west germany was technically the boondocks republik deutschland or federal republic of germany and east germany was the jewish democratic republic german democratic republic or gd are despite berlin sitting entirely in the eastern part of the country. And i constantly have to remind myself. That berlin was nowhere near the east west divide. The city was also divided into similar zones. The mere existence of west berlin a conspicuously capital city deep within the communist east germany quote stuck like a bone in the soviet throat according to soviet leader nikita khrushchev so tenuous where the relations between the east and west that russia began plotting to drive the us britain and france out of berlin for good in nineteen forty eight. A soviet blockade of west berlin was set up blocking off all rail and road access in an effort to starve the western allies out of the city. In one of the most dramatic standoffs in the history of the cold war the berlin blockade saw the us and its allies supplying their sectors of the city from the air known as the berlin airlift. The allied nations flew in more than two point. Three million tons of food fuel and other supplies over the course of a year until the soviets finally gave up an the blockade things. Were relatively calm for a while. But in the late nineteen fifties. The soviets noticed a trend. Developing people saw how life on the capitalist side was recovering faster than life on the communist side. Not to mention there were a lot fewer spies keeping tabs on regular folks on the western side and people began to emigrate. This was especially true of doctors. Scientists and skilled professionals resulting in a serious brain drain in the east got worse year. Over year khrushchev ordered the east german government to stop the flow of emigrants for good on the night of the twelfth nineteen sixty one in one night barbed wire barriers blockade and even some sections of brick and mortar wall were constructed. It was later reinforced multiple times to become an impenetrable twelve footer. Three point seven meter high concrete wall. Roughly one hundred miles or one hundred and sixty one kilometer. Long complete with no-man's-land. Landmines guard dogs guard towers and checkpoints the relatively fluid border which had until that point allowed some sixty thousand east germans to commute daily to good paying jobs in the west visit. Family and friends attend soccer games and so on was gone with no warning. Whatever side of the border you went to sleep on on august twelve. That was where you stayed for the next twenty eight years. This opposing structure didn't stop people from trying to make a great escape to the west. Roughly one hundred and seventy one people. Some of them defecting soviet soldiers lost their lives trying to cross the border but over five thousand more succeeded and some of them got really creative with it but the first person to cross that foreboding line just hopped over it when the wall was three days old much of it was not actually a wall at all but sections of barb wire fence though with soldiers and police to enforce it one of those was eighteen year old. Conrad shuman stationed at the corner of bernauer. Stresa and opener stresa. He might have been young but he could tell which way the wind was blowing. He wanted out of the gdr like now he pays his feet nervously while chain smoking and occasionally pushing down the barbed wire coil. It was only two feet high. While the other guards were distracted by a gathering crowd shuman swapped out his loaded. Submachine gun for an unloaded and therefore lighter one at four. Pm shoe inflict away. His cigarette took a running start and deathly leapt over the barrier dropping. His gun and just leaving it. As he was whisked into a waiting west german police car a west german journalist captured the leap to freedom in what would become one of the most famous images of the wall until nineteen eighty nine. The west loves shuman but many of the people he left behind considered him to be a lowly traitor even after he was reunited with his family after the fall of the wall a generation later many people still shunned him as a deserter. Shuman was the first soldier from the national people's army to escape. But it's estimated that twenty seven hundred east. German soldiers and policemen followed his example. If someone had turned your home into a prison then you should treat it like a prison and start digging a tunnel in nineteen sixty four thirty students from west berlin spent several months digging a four hundred and seventy six foot or one hundred and forty five meter long tunnel tell people in the east escape one assumes they had to crawl to freedom because the tunnel was only about three feet high less than forty eight hours after it was finished the stasi the german border patrol discovered it but not before fifty seven men women and children had managed to escape. Which i assume is why. It's referred to as tunnel fifty seven

Sephora Says So-Long to J.C. Penney, Hello to Kohls
"The beauty business can be pretty ugly. Consider the battle by department stores. Jc penney and kohl's for the affections of beauty brands sephora for the last fifteen years sephora has run stores within stores at jc penney. Those mini stores have been the most productive part of pennies credit. suisse analyst. Michael bonetti told industry publication retail dive. Naturally the last thing the struggling pennies wants to lose its golden goose especially as it attempts to emerge from bankruptcy after declaring chapter eleven protection in may but sephora hasn't been happy with its longtime partner and cast its longing i elsewhere in fact. Jc penney took sephora accord in may for attempting to leave at week reported the to came to what they say is an agreeable settlement that is sephora is honoring its commitment until the end of its contract in two thousand twenty three but the pair is still on the path to divorce in. The meantime sephora has made plans to move in with jc penney rival. Kohl's by twenty twenty three sephora and cold say there will be at least eight hundred. Fifty sephora stores within stores at kohl's nationwide retail dive because customers need to replenish makeup often in-store beauty departments help pulled in walk in traffic sephora. Could be a huge reason for customers especially younger ones to return to colds. Brick and mortar shops post pandemic. The move is particularly strategic now. Analysts say traditionally shoppers have purchased makeup. It mall based department stores but with malls dying beauty. Customers have fewer brick and mortar options. And they prefer one stop shopping. You know being able to buy makeup at the same store where you shop for clothes appliances and much more. Unlike jc penney cold stores are in suburban strip malls which will give sephora access to customers. It hasn't reached sephora. Stores tend to be an urban areas. Colds plans to make the partnership a big deal. The twenty five hundred square foot sephora departments will be placed prominently at the front of kohl's visible from outside and sometimes with their own entrances. The new colds tie up leaves. Jc penney out in the cold. The retailer is being sold. A mall landlords simon properties in brookfield asset management earlier. This month penny announced plans to start.

How much in person shopping would we really do. Especially the younger women. Retailers are trying so hard to attract millennial gen z consumers. Were already used to quite a bit of online shopping.

July Mailbag with Jason Moser
"The. Multiple answers I'm out Southwick and I'm joined, is always by broke camp. Personal Finance expert here at the Motley Fool. Hey, BRO, well! Hello Alison. It's the July mailbag where we answer your questions and this month it's with the help of multiple analyst Jason Moser. Should you buy a house now? What is modern portfolio theory and also here Jason's thoughts on a lot of stocks all that and more on this week's episode of Molly fully answers. Jason thanks coming back. you know I mean i. told you you invite me. I'M GONNA. Be here every single time. Thanks for having me back. I mean we appreciate it because we know you're a busy man, and so we do appreciate that you carve out time for us in our little show, don't. Always always make time for those important people in my life rule number one make time for allison and Bro I love. It sounds like a good one to me. Everybody wins. All right well, I guess we should just get into it, so the first question comes from Darren I've subscribed to the full for over a year and I'm really pleased with the service. I would like to know your thoughts about my holdings in Shop Affi- I've bought several times over the last three years, and it's now over thirty five percent of my portfolio and I. Don't know if I should continue holding or trimmed down. What would you advise a good problem to have I was gonna say that exact same thing? That's a good problem have? In a very glad, you have subscribed to our services in your really pleased. That's that's what we aim to to do. We aim to please help you make money and so yeah. This is one of those situations that we will find ourselves in from time to time as investors. A nice problem to have but something you do need to address at some point because it is going to be a little bit different for everybody. In so coming from the perspective of I, also own shop, a Fi stock in it's it's a wonderful investment. It certainly is taking up a bigger. Part of my portfolio a not at thirty five percent where you are. I think for me. It really does boil down to. That sleeping at night test in other words, you need to be able to go to sleep at night without worrying about this kind of stuff, and if you feel like shop, a Fi represents too much. Of your portfolio if you feel like you're overly allocated their, then, you may need to consider pulling it back a little, but now I mean it's. It's I think it's always important. Note you know. It's a big difference between building up a position buying a position to make this size to make this type of allocation in your portfolio. It's another thing entirely to have position grow into beat into becoming that size i. mean that that is that is in a little bit of a different dynamic there, so people all the different ways, some sometimes folks will, they will just sort of looking at it from the house money, concept or you. You just sell enough shares to recoup your initial investment, and then you let the rest of it go. Some people are perfectly fine with thirty five percent. Some people are not. They want a pair back so i. do think you need to kind of figure out what helps you sleep at night I do think that shop by a great business. I think the biggest risk in only shop, if I right now is valuation, just because it's dominating, it's space, but it's not making any money yet, and it's probably going to be a little while until they do so that valuation risk is there, but ultimately yeah I think determine. Where you feel most comfortable with it, and if you feel like you need to put a little bit of that money off the table, and he thirty five percents a lot, certainly very understandable. If they've said something you need to do if you do decide to pair it back a little bit. You've made multiple purchases, so you can identify the shares to sell to manage the tax consequence if this isn't a brokerage account and not an IRA. All right next question comes from Steven. If you are forced into unemployment, you are paying federal income taxes on unemployment payments are not contributing to social security nor to Medicare. How does this affect your future calculation of social security benefits and can one contribute to the social security fund during unemployment to mitigate any adverse effects on benefits, it is a little bit adding insult to injury, but you do owe federal income taxes on your unemployment benefits, and if your state charges has a state income tax, you probably have to pay state tax on that, although there are a handful of states that exempt unemployment benefits, so that's good news. And by the way you, you could have taxes withheld from your unemployment benefits you file. This form called form w four V. if you want, they withhold ten percent, or you can do quarterly estimated payments if you wanNA avoid that big tax bill at the end of the year, but if you're strapped for cash is probably just better to get the money now worried about your taxes later Eh. Stephen notes out. You do not pay payroll taxes. Those are the things that go into social security and Medicare so. So. It could result in a lower social security benefit, however, keep in mind that social security is based on your thirty five highest earning years, so if you enter the workforce at say twenty two and you work until you're mid to late sixties. That's more than forty years where the working so hopefully. If you miss out, if this year is not so good somewhere among those other forty, five or so years, you've had thirty five really good year so that this year won't be that big of a deal. So it probably will be okay. And then to address the last question. Unfortunately, no, you cannot make voluntary contributions to social security. There is at least one academic working paper out there. That suggested that people could buy into social security by like extra credits as opposed to contributing to your 401k, but so far that has not been passed by Congress I had an ex. Question comes from Sam. I heard to stocks discussed on another full podcast. When I read articles about them, it mentions they are thinly traded. I have two questions one I'm sure my position would still be quite small so I think I'd still be able to get in and out, but are there other things I should think about when it's a thinly traded stock and question number two. Is there a certain amount of? Daily volume you like to look for when considering a stock foreign investment. What volume do you want to see to not be? Quote thinly traded stock. Yes very good question in thinly traded stock just refers to the either the amount of shares or the dollar volume of shares that would trade on any given. Market Day and so. The. Thinly traded stock. The the problem is that you may not necessarily able to buy and or sell at the prices. You necessarily think you might be able to in other words when you look at a stock's price and you're looking through the. What what's going on throughout the day on the market, you'll see that did ask spread, which is essentially the bid. Ask spread is it's what someone's willing to pay for the stock versus what someone is asking to be paid for the stock? Because you know you have a buyer and a seller on on in every transaction they're. Normally most cases, these business business bread is very tiny, the couple of pennies maybe for most stocks because they're. They're heavily traded right there. There are plenty of dollar volume. But there are a lot of smaller companies small caps in particular in in you know a micro cap, specifically that don't necessarily meet these kinds of thresholds, and so you definitely have to be aware of that now I'll go back in time just a little bit, too. When we were running the service here at the fool called million dollar portfolios Roman Romani portfolio that we help manage members, and it was never really a problem, but we did have a condition in there. We were always looking for at least ten million dollars in average. Trading volume total daily volume now understand I'm not saying the number of shares saying the amount of money so basically shares times price, but we're always looking for at least ten million dollars. That wasn't set in stone it. It was an idea for us. It wasn't ever really a problem because we had a very diversified portfolio with a number of different types of companies, but when you're looking for smaller companies, you would've just keep that in mind that did ask. Spread is is something that just because it says the stock is twenty dollars. That doesn't necessarily mean you'll pay twenty dollars if there is a a big spread there between the bid, and the ask in so I think whenever you're considering stocks that have any lighter trading volume or thinly traded stock. Just be sure to use limit orders. Limit Orders of let us stipulate the price that you are willing to pay for or that you're willing to. To accept a if you're selling a limit, order is just a really good way to protect yourself from any unwanted surprise thinly traded stocks. You might not always necessarily get them when you want them, so you might have to lead that limited are in there for a little while, but but a limit order is a great way to protect you from any unwanted surprises. Next question comes from Randall. I'm in my late thirties now, but earlier in my life. I was very very bad with my money. Collection Calls Welfare and bankruptcy or not strangers to me. I've been at the bottom then I met the love of my life, and she convinced me to turn things around ten, and a half years later and I have done a complete one eighty, I took control of our finances rebuilt my credit and started investing and listening to all you find folks all. I opened it investing account with the goal of saving and building enough a down payment on a home. I'm happy to say we've now reached that goal. I recently sold at a profit because I didn't want that. Money tied up in the market. If we are close to needing it for a house, but now that we're here, I'm not sure what to do. We currently rent a basement apartment and our neighbors general living situation are less than ideal to put it mildly. So, we're champing at the bit to jump into the housing market that being said the experts have been calling for a drop in the housing market for a while, and that was before the pandemic hit now I'm worried that if we buy right away a year or two or three from now, interest rates will spike, and we could be put in a difficult situation. I live near Toronto. Canada or the housing market is already highly inflated in relation to the rest of the country should I be worried? While Randall first of all congrats on turning your financial life around love hearing success stories like that so good job on that. So I'll start with my standard answer with the rent versus buy decision, and that is just pull up spreadsheet and compare the all in cost of renting, including what you could earn on the money that use for down payment versus the all in cost of buying including the opportunity cost of putting down payment as opposed to having invested as well as insurance and taxes and maintenance, and all that stuff and project, where you might be in five to ten years based on various scenarios on what happens to stocks, if you. Rent an invest the down payment versus what happens to? What you'd look like depending on where home prices go. Generally speaking. If mortgage rates go up, that could way down on real estate prices we did see mortgage rates. Go Up for a bit a few years ago, but the housing market did find, but you could certainly envision a scenario where rates went much much higher, making houses, much less affordable and prices would have to adjust. But I don't expect that to happen anytime soon. I think we're. GonNa have low rates for awhile, but beyond that I don't know I've given up trying to predict where interest rates are going or even paying attention to people who try to predict where interest rates are going, so who knows? That said since you live in Canada. I thought I'd check. In where rates are these days and I and I got a brief reminder that things are actually different in Canada so I did a little bit of research. And then realize I had reach out to someone who knows, I reached out to Canadian Motley fool analysts Jim Gillies, and he had some thoughts so first of all just for you non-canadians out there. It is really different so in America. We get this thirty year mortgage than we have the same payment for thirty years. It's fixed. They don't have that in Canada. What's the most common is a twenty five year? But only the first few years or fixed. And then adjusts so in that context you can understand why Randall is worried about interest rates going up because over the next depending on which alone he gets the most popular is a five year fixed, and then you basically have to go get a new loan probably. So that put that in context, a little more, but also Toronto, really is crazy expensive. Vs from the end of last year that put it as the most overvalued real estate market in the world behind Munich. As Jim pointed out in our call here in the US we had our housing peak in two, thousand, six, two, thousand seven, and then we had what he called a reset, which is basically prices came down significantly candidate and have that slight downturn at home prices, but then they just kept on going up, so it really is different there, so when Jim explain all this to me, the difference in mortgages and the difference in home prices. Frankly he was inclined to say to this guy. You Might WanNa rent for while more and see what happens, but he also had the good advice of okay. What if you buy in prices? Come Down Fifteen percent twenty percent. What if they come down to a point where he upside down? You owe more than the home is worth. Are you okay with that? If. You're okay with that. Maybe it's okay to do that. But it certainly sounds like dicey situation than if someone were telling me like I'm thinking of do this in Dubuque Iowa or something like that. couple of other differences. In case you're curious about Canada in the US. Your mortgage is portable in Canada south. You Buy A. Get the five year mortgage, but then move get to take the mortgage with you for the next house and interest is not tax deductible. US Look at you, Robert, broke? Camp Can Canadian real estate experts there you go. Next! Question comes from Chris. I was on twitter the other day and saw that one of your contributors Brian Feroldi tweeted that he doesn't believe in a long list of technical trading terms and then modern portfolio theory. Can you help me understand what not believing an MP? T with mean this? He believed that diversification doesn't reduce risk. Also every financial adviser I've ever talked to his preached empty, so I would love to hear the counterargument. Jason you're not Brian for all the. Question I am not Brian for all the do get the talk of Brian Pretty good bit though. I I must admit I. Don't know what he said here in regard to modern portfolio theory and all of these technical trading arms. But I think I can take a guess. Generally speaking I agree with them, and I think you could sit there and look up the portfolio theory in you know read about it as much as you want. Just go to google modern portfolio theory, and you can dig right in there, but in a nutshell ultimately, what modern portfolio theory is the intention behind it? It's meant to reduce risk while maximizing returns. It assumes that investors don't like risk. They prefer less risky portfolios to riskier ones in order to achieve a certain level of return so right there. I kind of kind of lost me right there because I don't believe that every ever investors risk averse I think some investors have a very. Healthy, appetite for risk, and frankly I would say I got a pretty high tolerance for risk when it comes to investing, made it just because of what I do for a living but I. You know to me I like having that trade off least unhappy. Happy to take some risks there. If I feel like that upside, it's going to be potentially worth. So with modern portfolio theory, it introduces a lot of fancy math in the form of variances and correlations in order to come up with this. Quantifiable, investing strategy that ultimately helps reduce risk while allowing the investor to achieve. Certain returns in. Maybe it works for some not I'm not dismissing it personally I. Don't use it, I don't personally subscribe to it I. Don't need it. I think honestly for us. In a really believe it's extends to to most people in our full universe is that is individual investors I think a more meaningful way to reduce risk. is to just extend your timeline like invest longer. So like Tom Gardner said a number of years back when we were. Working on Motley, fool one basically take your take the time line that you think you want to own any individual stocks you buy shares of starbucks and I plan on owning it for you know five years. Okay, we'll just double it. Cloning it for ten in all of a sudden right there. You've given yourself more time. Time is one of the big advantages we have is individual investors. Money managers don't have that advantage, Wall Street done generally handed abandoned, either, but if you can be patient and just invest in good businesses. That risk really starts to come down over time. There are plenty of studies out there. That show that risk comes down the longer you hold onto those stocks, which into me, just renders modern portfolio, theory, more or less not useful mean on things, not useful for everybody, but it's not useful for me and based on Chris. Question It sounds like a agree with what Brian was saying there. We think I'll add to. That is I agree that risk is really not that much of a consideration if you are saving for retirement. But once you are in retirement man, and just say like you know what the market's not I'm going to extend my time highs in ten years. Because you need to spend money in that situation, I think diversification is important. It's important to have assets that don't always move the same direction at the same time. For some fools. That's just as simple as keeping any money need the next five years in cash, so you're right out any ups and downs, and that can be fine. But I. do think it makes sense to have. A mix of investment so that right now, technology stocks are doing very well, and we hope that continues to do well, but we remember was that happened in two thousand from two thousand to two, and there were down for quite a while anyone who retired in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine, or so it was very happy to have some small caps value maybe a. A little international, some reits to ride out the storm Yeah I think we talk about that often like recognizing where you are as an investor in life, are you in the grow your wealth stage, or are you in the protector stage, because they are two very different strategies, and we're all hopefully going to be in both of them at one point or another right? I personally and still on the grow your wealth stage I. Think we all probably are, but you will at some point get to where you need to focus on protecting the wealth that you've made so that you can then have that money to spend, and that definitely will dictate your investment strategy things that you're invested in and whatnot. Generally speaking I do like the idea for people who are just risk averse and have this notion that investing is just too risky. I mean the fact of the matter is not investing as far away greater risk like not investing. You will never grow your money if you don't the best, so if if if risk is a problem, I think generally speaking. Along the lines of diversification idea that that bros. talking about him, he just invest in invest in SNP index fund is something that just follows the progress and p. you know you're going to be participating in and if you look at that over the over the stretch of time, their five ten twenty thirty years, I mean that trend does go one way. It, but clearly the older you get, the more you need to start focusing on protecting your wealth, and that will change the way you view things. Right next question comes from Alex from Alexandria if I buy Muny bonds from another state in my IRA. Is it still taxable and Alexander with who we have a bond on and we do have a bunch. I know Alex up super excited about having a bunch on in Alexandria to I can't believe I haven't been there. It's like two miles from my house, but we still haven't been oh i. know because there's a global pandemic going on and we. saw. Alyx if we buy me bonds from another state in my IRA is still taxable. Bro, help him out or her or so Muny Barnes. People Invest Immunity bonds because they're free of federal taxes and in many cases. If you're buying bonds issued by the place you live, they might be free of state and local taxes, so that can be doubly triply tax free. That's why people buy 'em. There are some times, however that if you own immune, abound outside of an IRA. Pay Taxes and this surprises some people. There's something called the minimum tax. If you buy immunity bond at a discount, and then it matures at par. If you buy a distress, Muny bond for like you put an eight thousand dollars, and you sell it later for ten thousand dollars as a capital gain. You'll be taxed on that. So, there are some times when you would pay taxes on media. Now, Alex is asking what if it's an IRA? Do I have to worry about paying tax interest. If it comes from another state and the answer is no, you won't have to worry about that. The only thing I would say is. Generally speaking immune bond already has built in tax advantages, so you wouldn't keep it in an IRA, unless there's the example of the stuff I was saying previously like for. It's one of those exceptions when him UNIBOND would result in taxes than you might WanNa keep it an IRA, but generally speaking. If you're going to buy Muny Bond, keep it out of an IRA. Next question comes from Boone. I just did my first. Roth conversion and looked at that old account for the first time in. There was the expected dividend producing fund I remembered, but there was a stock chesapeake energy that I had completely forgotten about since I purchased the stock in two thousand, six fifteen. It's down way down like eight point five percent off the purchase price. What should I do with it now? It's in a tax deferred accounts so I. Don't think the loss is realized until I. Start to pull money out of the account and that might not. Not Be for fifteen years current value of all my shares will be about one percent of the value of the account after the conversion. Do I sell in the very little value? I had left and depend on E. Trade to keep up with lost for me or should I hold on based on the slim chance. The stock will be worth more in the next ten years. Oil Stocks do act unusually on occasion, only oil stocks. Stock everything else makes that usually. Chesapeake has been really. Interesting Story to follow and frankly. I don't I. Don't know that I would look at it today. As a business that I'd WANNA own so typically if I. You know I think it was yet idea. Didn't sound like a position are actively building united investment didn't work out. I mean that that happens to all of us. We don't get them all right. We have a philosophy here at the full. A lot of do we like to? Water flowers and pull the weeds, and that's just a nice way of saying. Add to our winners in to get rid of losers in. This I think is more than likely slated to continue being a loser I mean. Chesapeake has lost a lot of value. In it does sound like based on when you purchased this, these is absolutely busted I mean. There there are all sorts of reasons to sell one of them is if you thesis busted and the reason why you invest in the company is is no longer the case, and I would he probably is the case with Chesapeake so to me like you know, you could sit there and let it go, but but what's the goal trying to get back to even, or are you trying to get back a couple of bucks for me a lot of times? I'll I'll take a little opportunity here and there to just go ahead and pull those weeds sell it. Be Done with it. In even though it's just unique out a little bit value there, you can still take that money and do something more productive with it. So. Yeah T to me. I can't tell you to buy or sell obviously, but I can certainly understand. Selling in this case, but I you know. As as oil and natural gas energy can can turn around. This is going to be one that has a lot of headwinds in in. You might be waiting a very long time to to get any of this money back. I point out here that I it seems that maybe boone has a slight misunderstanding of how taxes in aries work because he talked about realizing the loss when he takes the money out and trade keeping track of the loss for him, it sounds to me that he thinks that he can write the loss off whence he takes the money out. That may not be the case, but just to be clear. One of the great benefits of an IRA is you don't pay taxes on the gains, interest and dividends from year to year. But. One of the drawbacks is. You can't take a capital loss on that as well so there's really no no way to benefit on your tax return from this loss. Next question comes from Benjamin. You recommend seeing a fee. Only financial adviser for check in every so often I know there is the Garrett planning network and others to help find an advisor. But what questions do you ask? And what answers do you listen for when trying to find one that is worth his or her one hundred fifty to two hundred fifty per hour. So I would say start first with asking yourself some questions. What are you looking for? You could go for the whole launch. Lada where someone is managing your money analyzing retirement plan helping new save and a five twenty nine. Maybe even doing your taxes with some financial planners do help with the state planning, or are you looking for something more targeted? You just want advice about am I saving enough for retirement, or are you close to retirement? You're like I just WanNa make sure that I'm doing right when terms like choosing my Medicare plan and claiming social security at the right time, so first of all just be very clear of what you're looking for. Then if it involves investments in any way, you WanNa, make sure that you find someone who is at least in the general same area philosophically and I say this, because many financial planners are hardcore index. And if you come to them as a motley fool, listener member with a lot of individual stocks. They may say okay. I'll give you some general asset allocation guidance, or they'll say I don't care if you like to pick. Stocks are not my advises, sell the stocks and go to index funds, so you want to make sure that if you're gonNA, ask for any sort of investment. Advice that you wanna find someone who's someone somewhat at least aligned for what you're looking for. Once, you've got that then. Just asked some of the typical stuff. You might expect so credentials certified financial planner. Are they a CPA either their personal financial specialist. How long they've been in the business. There are lots of people who. have not been in the business very long. Even though they're not young people, a lot of people choose financial planning as a second career, which I think is great, but just because someone may be look like they're in their forties or fifties. Sixties doesn't mean they've been in the business that long, and you WANNA. See if they've worked with someone like you right so if you have. Maybe. You have a large amount of wealth large income huge portfolio. You WanNa make sure that they have experienced with dealing with those issues, but on the flip side to if if you have, are you know middle income, decent size portfolio, but nothing too complicated. You don't WanNa. Go to someone who's used to dealing with someone who's wealthier partially because those people charge a lot more. You want to find someone who's kind of a little more lined up with what you're doing. Then make appointments with three folks. All of them will do get do free. Get acquainted means, and you're just looking for someone who you feel comfortable with. Since, you mentioned Garrett Big Fan of the Gary Planning Network and other is is not for the National Association of Personal Financial Advisers. But Garrett on their website has a how to choose an adviser section. Just Google attitude visor Garrett Planet Network has a great chapter from a dummies book that they wrote about how to choose adviser, and they have a good questionnaire that you can print out in US asking lots of good questions of financial planner. It's tough. Choosing a financial planner like my mom just went through that Bro! Is You know and she didn't really have a lot of options in Boise Idaho. Maybe two and one of them, she I never called her back, and never got back her, and the other one was just so busy just so busy, and just she just never. It's it can be rough. Finding a financial planner can be I. Think what we'll see is one of the consequences of this. Of the coronavirus pandemic. Just, like we are all used to working from home, many financial advisors and financial planners an now working from home. So in what they're doing is they're becoming licensed in more states. So, if you are more comfortable, working with someone over zoom remotely I think you don't have to stick with someone in your area. You can go beyond your locations, but you know some people don't feel comfortable that if if they're going to have someone managing their life savings, they want to be able to meet them in person. That's just a personal choice. All right next question comes from twitter. Is that right from sully what I hear? Okay? I just listened to the episode mentioning Your Weakness Two. Shopping carts and Tj, Maxx that me or you Jason. Accused me. Thoughts on the stock. If I had a war on Amazon, basket would be Costco TJ maxx Home Depot tractor supply. What would be your basket against online retail? That's funny. Well okay, listen I wouldn't have basket against online retail, because online retails where it's at. The whole idea. The whole idea behind the basket approaches to find a long term trend that you feel like the world is headed toward and so the war on cash basket, for example that was always one about people using cash war, traffic payments now with that said I get the spirit of the question some going to answer it because I do like some of these ideas. And I I would definitely include Costco in their in Home Depot's well. Home Depot gets a lot of my money. Doesn't, but they have a very loyal fan base of customers that just are happy to renew year in year out. So I love those membership models there, so costco and a Home Depot for sure you know I'm going to give a little shout at my wife Robin I. Know that she would approve of my adding target to the mixer. She hasn't been raving about targets APP and ordering on the APP the able to go to the store. Just pick it up right there I've talked with Ron Gross on more than one occasion about target and how this really has. Become a twenty first century resale right they're doing. They're doing everything online and in physical stores. What they call Alma Channel and then my fourth and I'm GONNA. Take this. You probably aren't expecting this when Alison. I'm GonNa Shock and all you. I'm ready. I'm ready Alta. We're going. Make up my I know my daughter's love. It ugly ugly Mug like this. What do I know about makeup? Tell you what. Get! A House with two daughters and a wife. That's what I know about make. There's a lot of it in an Ulta is a really really good business. They actually have a very nice diversified revenue stream. They've got the salon a`dynamic of the business which encourages people to go there they do have an online business. They have an augmented reality function there at where you can actually like. Try things on makeup to see how it looks. Mary Dillon just a phenomenal other adults of that's my fourth, their Ulta but they I appreciate the spirit of the question I like the idea I'm not saying this is the basket. I'm not tracking this basket in a not a not backing this basket, but in the spirit of the question if I had to develop. A basket, such as this one I think it'd go with those four. Yeah, I mean I guess you just have to think about what retail out there is something that you would still physically go to. Because the actual retail experience is being in the space is the experience and what you're there for? And I know I mean before Corona virus we I would go to target and just just couldn't believe how much money I had spent from walking through a few of the aisles. TJ Max is just a phenomenal business I mean what they've done through the years. Is really capitalized on the nature of the business, the advantage they have in that treasure hunt kind of nature like you go to TJ Max, maybe not necessarily looking for something, and then you end up finding a lot of things, and it can be a little bit lumping at times, but but generally speaking like management's a very good job of running that business, and they know how to exploit the advantage of experience. I think they're online game. Though I think they could probably get something going with online, and they just have not have not yet and so I. Haven't since Corona Virus for example. I haven't spent a single dollar there, but I continue to still shop at. Home Depot I. Think Yeah! We still shopping at home depot because we're doing. You know you gotta buy lumber somewhere. And I know my grandparents out in my my inlaws out in rural Virginia. They love tractor supply store, but that's not. That's not in where we live, but. Still New deck at the house there allison. I mean you, can you see? A big exposed beam behind me and some drywall work that needs to happen. Have lots of drywall work that needs to happen now though. Yeah Anyway get to that. All right next question comes from Matthew. I got married to my amazing wife nine days ago in a small Kobe nineteen wedding in our front yard after we postponed it from its original date in April all. It was definitely different, but still very special. My question is in relation to this wonderful event. My salary has been at a level that has allowed me to fund a roth. Ira I love the optionality of it, but after marrying my bad ass, wife are combined. Salaries are now over the limit that would allow me to fund the Roth. IRA does this affect occur immediately? Do I need to now open up a traditional. IRA and begin funding it or do I have until the end of the year. Matthew wants a Roth Bachelor party one last. Well Matthew I have bad news. When it comes to most things in taxes, your status and your age and things like that depends on where you are on the last day of the year, said if you're married on the last day of the year, you were considered married for the whole year. So that means if you contributed started contributing to a Roth IRA for twenty twenty. You need to call up your brokerage. Firm and re characterize that as a traditional. Now don't have any other traditional IRA, as it's very easy to do the back door, Ross which we've talked about before you can just google it or even when you call the brokerage, just say I want to do the backdoor. Roth and they'll tell you what to do. If, you have other traditional IRA as you can still do. It just becomes more complicated and you'll probably pay more taxes. So you, but you may not be totally out of luck and I should say that's only if you have a traditional IRA doesn't matter if your wife has traditional areas. One exception by the way of of what I just said. In terms of tax status and last day of the year is distributions from retirement accounts before it's age fifty nine and a half, you actually have to be age fifty nine and a half to avoid that ten percent early distribution penalty, unless some of the many exceptions that are out there exist. Right next question comes from Warren Warren Buffett. Maybe I don't know that's why I was thinking. He's asking about coq, so maybe maybe. Once James Opinion on coke. By? Or hold? Wants to now. I'd give buffet night give. Kiesel Warren of the same advice and I would say. For some I'm not buying it. Not Buying it I'm not holding it if I own it. I guess that means sell it. Even Atlanta Georgia person like you i. feel like it's almost sacrilege. I am pretty close to probably not being ever even invited back. But the facts are the facts. Okay, I mean you do have to look at the stock itself has been ain't bad stockton for the last five years. I mean I do understand why when you look at it what they do, I mean they have. Four hundred master brands, and less than fifty percent of them are the big global brands that are actually responsible for almost all of their revenue when I say almost only ninety eight percent, so it's a business. It's very reliant on on. You know a small portfolio of really successful grants. The problem is now. We've always talked about cocoa beans such a great distribution story and that's true. They've got a distribution network. It's just phenomenal, but the problem is now. They're what they're distributing is is being seen as not so good for you in so you're seeing them. Have it into to essentially pivot away from what you know brought them all of the success for all these years. Years in soda and that that's not going to change I. Mean you're always GonNa have people to drink soda? People are not to drinking as much soda going forward in the numbers of just kind of the kind of shown that through that through the quarters in the years of Coca, Cola and Pepsi Pepsi. Has the salty snacks division, which I've always been very. Impressed by I, mean I love a good Cheeto, and so I mean anytime you can throw a bag of those cheetos in my Patriot Amok GonNa, turn it their coq. Interrupting, but I think this is also very important point. You tried the Jalapeno White Cheddar crunchy cheetos. The White Shit or so. I've tried to Jalapeno ones but I've not seen the white Cheddar White Cheddar Jalapeno crunchy cheetos. Don't get the puffy. The poofy ones are not as good, but the crunchy white Cheddar Jalapeno Cheetahs. them by them. They're amazing. I have to back. Pain you. I'll get those next time. I promise I, mean Eh. One. crunchy wants the puffy ones, so that people won't you're not? You're not seeing poopie. Who using poofy Joe Copy? We'll be Coca doesn't have that dynamic of their business. They don't have that dynamic to their business, and they've suffered from that Pepsi's Pepsi's outperform coca-cola over the last several years. It's not safe. Pepsi or coke get it back. I'm sure they probably can. But what I am saying is I think there are a lot of better ideas out there, and so I wouldn't be putting new money into Coca Cola and frankly if I did own it. I probably would look at selling it and you know if you've got a beverage company, maybe own starbucks. It seems like the science coming out in support of coffee, right? It's coming and telling you that these sodas. They're gonNA. Make you fat. Coffee, it could extend your life. It could help you live longer. SMART Mexican looking this a starbucks as well is. That sounds like study from the copy roasters of America. Do! Something that Chris Hill sent me the other day. that. We sleep at night. I'm glad I've been drinking coffee as long as I have God knows what I would look like otherwise. You're a good looking man. Rick. good-looking next question comes from. A. I'm trying to save money for my kid's College. Fund while the five nine is a great option. I'm limited to investing in mutual funds, which means at best I'm going to get what the market gets assuming I do some sort of low cost index fund and I be a capital F. Fool investor have been doing much better than the market in the last three years of being a member of. Of Stock Advisor Enroll breakers, even during this pandemic mess by listening to every full podcast and following David and Tom's and yours and every one else's in the full universe. My portfolio of about one hundred stocks is up here today. Thirty percent to the market's down five percent as of day as of today weighed down by three sluggish five to nine plants that are also down five percent each. I feel like throwing away money by using the five to nine, and not being allowed to select my own great companies in which to invest. What's more, my understanding is that the five to nine does not count as an asset for the kid when applying for student aid, but the coverdale does. So I come to you with a simple question. Can I have my cake and eat it, too? What if I wanted to use the coverdell to buy individual stocks? Until the child is nearing college? At which point I then converted to a five to nine. This allows me to get better returns and avoid it being an asset for financial aid and get the favorable tax benefit. So, chose this question, because first of all Dune does a good job explaining the benefits of the coverdell over the five twenty nine, you can buy individual stocks. You can buy and sell them all day long. We recommend that, but you can. Whereas with the five twenty nine, you can only make two changes to the investments a year, and it's all mutual funds. So. That's you did a good job of explaining that. I will point out with the coverdell. It's gotta low contribution limit of only two thousand dollars a year, so for some people save more for college, but they can max out to cover it out, but then put the rest in a five twenty nine. One thing that doomed does not have quite right. Is The financial aid treatment the financial aid treatment? Coverdale's and five twenty nine is identical. They're treated as assets of the parent, not the kid that is favourable from a financial aid perspective. It's not negligible doesn't mean it doesn't have any effect on financial aid, but it's better than an asset that is owned. By the kid. He can. Transfer money from the Coverdell to the five twenty nine. If for some reason, he decides to do that, but you can't transfer it. The other way around so were convinced to try out the covered. You have money in a five twenty nine. You can't move it from the five twenty nine. To the coverdale. What other interesting thing that he pointed out is that he is doing very well with his investments, and he owns about one hundred stocks. We get this question a lot. Either on the show, or on the full live that we run every day for members of full services, and that is how many stocks should I own, and if I owned too many are not just owning index fund watering down my returns, but here's an example if someone owns a one hundred stocks is still crushing the market. Idol last question comes from Cameron thoughts on the valuation of Stone Co in light of the corona virus for a fragile country like Brazil. This could be the tipping point after so many other headwinds. But how does that affect stone? coz Business Jason I. Don't even know what Stone Co is. What is still business? Yes, don't Coz a payments company that's focused on Latin American markets in Brazil and particular in so I guess it could be. Draw you can draw a parallel to to a with square through pay pal at, but generally speaking I mean it's payments. Company focused on Latin America. Primarily Brazil. Is the big money making market kind of like Marco Libra, they're. In I, I, it's a it's. A NEAT opportunity, gained a lot of headline recently, when and it was, it was seen that Berkshire hathaway. Warren Buffett's company Berkshire hathaway taken a five percent position in the company, which is pretty considerable i. Think in the near term. You have to acknowledge the fact that. They're gonNA, be some real headwinds in in Brazil particularly because of the pandemic I mean. The flip side of that is role in same boat kind of in that regard. The entire world is dealing with it, so it's not specifically you know it's. It's not particular to one economy or one country some. To get hit harder than others I, do feel like Brazil. Be at a place where they can recover from this given You know some of the other businesses in the area. I mean that that that I think is. Who knows ultimately how? That's GONNA shake, but generally speaking. I think the move away from cash towards cashless. Transactions in and financial software that's not stopping if anything, this hastens that which which is what I think, Cameron's talking about there and for a company like stone. Co, neither are other companies in the space pags bureau in roquetas libra to but you know moving money around is a big big market opportunity, and there's nothing that says they won't be able to expand well beyond the Latin American markets, too, so I I'd say cautiously optimistic I mean I

And I invite you not to watch the first video in the series that explains what the Heck I mean what? I am inviting us to step into and be other practices. I've shared so far so I'm sharing five and today is the third of five and it may be my favorites. I love all of these very very near and dear to my heart on part of my own regular practices and in this time of the sacred transition into spring into the season of rebirth and renewal and beginnings and awakening. They are more near and dear to my heart. We happened to this year. Be Doing this. Transitional time in a a climate of uncertainty and unprecedented events and there is truly no better time than now given those two variables with spraying. And what we're facing what were were dealing with to resurrect our awareness of the mother to have this authentic connection and relationship and experience of her because she has always been here and she is literally waiting and and wanting us to receive the love. That is so unconditionally. Given at all times and so these practices. I'm sharing are ways to do that today. You are going to practice a plant tournament and again these these practices. I'm giving can be done now today anytime anywhere for free. Nothing special no special training needed no equipments. No nothing. It's just you and your pure devotion curiosity and stepping into that role of of student and beginner initiates. The are the types of of spring and having this relationship with your mother so practicing a plant at tournament. You can do this no matter where you are. So if you're if you're stuck somewhere in this time of quarantine you can be in your yard. You can be on a balcony. You can be looking out a window any anywhere okay. This'll this'll work just fine so a plan tournament is you remembering your admit ability to communicate with plants. Plants are a huge part of my work of my offerings end of my own. Just personal practice. I engage with them many times in a day. In their four main forms of fruit and vegetables herbs oils and plant spirits flower essences so communing with the spirit the energy of a plant. Like I'm asking you to do in this. Practice is on that that most subtle end of the spectrum from subtle to gross so tangible to intangible obviously fruit vegetable quite tangible and the the spirit the energy of a plant is is tangible in a different way we can see it and feel it with with our inner vision with our our our own energy our own essence meeting on that that soul so level each plants on earth has its own particular frequency. Its own particular offering and medicine and wisdom advice. You can think of of our plants as original ancestors. They've been here way longer than humans have and they will probably be here long after US. They are are the reason that we have made it this far the reason that we are here they offer us everything. Clothing shelter food medicine all of it so we can think of them as as our wise elders and each one of them has something very unique to say to share. And that's getting into kind of working with with flower. Essences is there is literally a plants for every single thing every single condition and challenge and triumph and joy and everything that human will face during their lifetime so we all have the ability to communicate with these plants like the mother as her her ambassadors. Helpers we have chosen to kind of ignore that part of ourselves as shared in the first video it's been shamed and scared out of us this this inmate connection to the mother to this this great spiral principal as I call it in my work and in this this series. I'm sharing with you inviting us all to to see her to feel her to receive her. So we all have this ability to communicate with plants. And I'm asking you today to tap into that and remember you are going to be outside in whatever capacity. You are able at this time. You can walk outside. You can just look around a window and see what what plants you can see. Maybe there's a plant in your home. So ideally you would be outside and allow a plant to kind of call to you. Maybe it's one you nursing before maybe it's one that have always been curious about always alta connection with a particular tree in your yard or whatever it is you know so trusting that you know and allowing it to call to you and to to capture your attention and from there you are consciously going to open lines of communication with that plant. And how would you begin a conversation or or in exchange with somebody at a coffee shop or think bacteria single days hanging out at a bar? Something I know I did plenty of pets How would you have initiated a conversation? Then it's the same thing so you're going to introduce yourself? You're going to state your intention. I desire to to open up this parts of of myself. That knows how to receive your communication. Even if you're not gonNA sprout a mouth and vocal cords and start talking to me the way that I need to talking and I'm allowing myself to see and receive beyond that and to not give into if it's not talking to me in that way then it's not talking in that's stupid and that's not real Letting that part of the brain just like take a little back seat. Promise that you'll let it do something super intellectual in you know whatever it wants to do later and right now you're using your very like cosmic primordial mystical part of your brain and you're going to state this. It's super powerful. If you literally use your voice and speak out loud because that's kind of in in our human suits these beautiful vessels we get to wear. That's our main way of communication is up and out to using this whole setup rate here so you speaking and that way is the way that you are. Your vessel speaks so meeting them in in your kind of preferred communication and then waiting for a response. Trust that you will receive a response and trust the what you are receiving is true at happening in real in beautiful in profound. And just take it from there. Receive what you receive. Ask if there's any messages for you ask if there is something that it wants from you have. A Conversation. Have a journal nearby. Maybe draw the plant rate down anything that comes through and just take it from there. If this practice is brand new to you awesome. Go for it if it makes you uncomfortable. Lean into that because this is our this is what Israel our connection with these beings that are like right here and have always been right here. This is something that is part of your practice. Do regularly amazing. Maybe there's there's something for you to receive at this time from a different plant it from an existing ally. Ats The practice for today. Please please share how it goes for you. I really really really on here and I will see you with the next
High Avalanche Danger Out West Affects Transportation And Ski Areas
"To another story now. It's been a chaotic couple of weeks in the rocky mountains where large avalanches have closed highways ski resorts a single storm near Salt Lake City. It triggered a record forty eight slides as NPR's Kirk siegler reports. The increased avalanche risk comes at a time when more and more people are hitting the slopes in the high country. God probably Craggy Teton Mountains of North West Wyoming steep and deep Jackson hole is as a magnet for extreme skiers right. They're buddies goading them on on Matt Beauregard. And Rick lawler drop a fifteen foot cliff in this glade. Area called the tower three shits as just a melody honestly. You were just rep around rounded bounce. Skiing inbounds inside. The patrolled boundaries of the ski resort generally thought to be safer when it comes to avalanches. That's because all season skiers. I've been packing this snow down and stabilising it. But Matt Beauregard knows that's no guarantee we've actually triggered small slides on this exact face. They may duck a rope and ski ski out of bounds into the back country. But even here at the resort. They're wearing avalanche transceivers and safety gear. Just in case education's probably the most important thing. Rick here's wearing an air bag for added protection so in the case that he is stuck inside an avalanche you'll be able to pull this cord and hopefully float to the surface inbounds or in the back country. Avalanche danger is high across the mountain west. An unusually snowy early season followed by drought than dry powder. Storms then a punch of heavy wet snow last weekend in Utah. Today's storm dumped six and a half feet in Little Cottonwood Canyon home to the snowbird and Alta resorts awards and it ended up closing little cottonwood for fifty four hours and forty eight. Avalanches were reported one of those hit. The Road Mickey Champion is a forecaster here at the Utah Avalanche Center. She recorded wind speeds up to a hundred miles an hour on Ridge tops that further destabilize the already volatile snowpack in the Wasatch satch mountains. And then you put a big wrong heavy load or a wind load on top of that it just kind of upside down. It's like a pyramid when you take out the Baser Django when you remove one of the pieces says there were no fatalities reported in Utah. But last month skiers were buried and killed in avalanches within patrolled terrain at resorts in California and Idaho. Oh all of this is putting the round. The clock work. People tasked with keeping these mountains safe under the microscope Jackson Hole. Ski Patrol Director Drew Neilan stepping into his bindings above. You can't see it in the fog now. But there's a big cirque above us here and that's Casper Bowl. All and all that terrain is avalanche terrain every morning at dawn before the tram and the Gondolas Starts Spinning Army of Nielsen's patrol or detonating explosives lives to intentionally trigger slides. Now so skiers don't later and some of these can even be detonated remotely thanks to new robot like trolleys that reach even more dangerous surest remote places. Obviously we worry about avalanches coming down into the heavily congested areas. So that's one of our biggest concerns to get that work done early. Another big concern is simply that more. People are venturing out further into areas. They normally wouldn't have thanks to improved equipment. I think people assume that we're able that. We have the ability to completely eliminate the risk of avalanches within the scary. And that's just not the case but avalanche forecasters say along with the increased risk. It comes a new cachet becoming cool to say. You've taken avalanche courses and Dir as prepared as you can be Kirk Siegler N._p._R.. News Jackson Wyoming.
The Traders Journey: Your Team
"Today we're going to go into a gain. The journey of the trade the tribes mixed up with some reason and I wanted to discuss with you. Speak to you about tame now. The reason I speak about team today is because like the last couple of days I've been hard at work in the studio with some great people he might same. We've we've been altogether. We flew. Look the apprentice up and one of the wonderful community members Bras come out with his cameras and we shot some stuff against the grain screens. Green some some new stuff that we've not done before I really exciting progression really enjoying the steps that we take and super proud of what we're doing at the moment. I Count Whiteness. The end result the bullet comics or use it but some it just made me think how great the people I have around me and I thought to myself about all the teams missile. I've worked within and brought me back to trading as well because you can be in a tame where it's toxic where you for example at work you going to work and you might not want Debate work you. You might have talks ick management or just bad people around you that are always bringing you down dragging the energy out of you and there's just so important and to have the right people to work with that are gonNA bring the best out in you now. Of course I'm talking about my team that runs these business that helps all the people that we need to in November in our communities. And all that sort of stuff. I've got a great team. We've pan picked him. They've grind a lot and we've thrown an awful lot at them these we've had so much guy on and we've grown a great dealing. I'm so proud of what we've achieved but got me to thinking about my trading tank. Because I had different trading team to what I do now for example when I was in London and I was more or less bomb itself most of those years and that was the whole reason for creating the community in slack. Gripe is because I I just really believe that if I had other people trading the same strategies as what I was that I would learn more and I learned a lot faster and I had to have different. Mantles people that Had already had success or were year or two ahead of me or just picked it up. Quick I mean he doesn't have to be time doesn't necessarily make you a better try to It generally does if you take the right steps but some people pick it up quicker than others. And that's just the fact of life in everything really but what I was thinking was who's in my team now and for me. My team really evolves around my community I I don't try it any longer. With any of the guardsmen. There still there in sky. The old school Will you slack and facebook and whatnot. L. Discord no the different telegrams and whatnot but for me. My community is my trading reading buddies. It's my it's my tame and it's such a good thing that they're hoping people in there and they're all looking for the same things I'm looking for now sometimes was all white in and also looking at. Maybe you WanNa reconsider this or more often than not if somebody says what do you think of this. I'll say first of all what do you think of this hanes. You decision based on May I want you to make a decision and then all of us anything to reconsider and an inch navy member within the community also helps to keep each other honest I suppose then then there's the mentor people sending their screen shots all all go through all that. Try and I'll do mentoring award in three two. They tried to get to watch that. It's facebook which is great and that's what like give back to their communities. Well there's also other people that are in my tame I'm a trading team and it's kind of well I wanNA talk about trading. I talk about having to be at one with self centered feeling good. I always talk about you know if I'm not feeling great. I want trading because I do have chronic fatigue syndrome. It does mean they're up. Here is Tom. I just went tried tried because I'm just not feeling good enough. So the other areas the other people that are remind same external to the market so today for example I will be going and seeing a therapist who are saying for the last eighteen months and essentially she takes all the an arts and much of it strange but she takes a lot out of the stress Outta me. A lot of the energy the pent-up frustrations and whatnot. That you just carry day today and you don't really realize it and as a business owner and as a trader that both pretty intense things things take on an and you don't realize how much actually carrying until you release that so it's a really important member of my team that I haven't seen the two months and I realized because after all the content we've been doing and recording standing in presenting for the last two days I was like man Phil Phil One. I'm very happy that it's done because today on just short on really retired so not to the point of our feelings secret and to the point where I'm feeling like you know what I'm GonNa take some advice. I've gotta get back into saying that member of my team. So that's what I'm GONNA do. I'M GONNA go out and I'M GONNA see my Bowen Therapists this evening afternoon. I'm trying to get myself back into that release. Let all the negative energy out that I feel am carrying and sometimes the simplest noticing that by lying in bed trying to relax and you find yourself clinching. You Joe's clench together your tongues pushing the toffee math or you or what is it that higher level and that's really you carry too much on born. I won't bring out the best in you coming back to the team thing. I'm going to be seeing my bowen therapists not to try and help get a bit more grounded. I also so have a therapist that I work with Tom Usually once a month. I haven't seen her for a while either. And you get that Book Dean and I see a hypnotherapist as well again as an area of make sure shoulder by stay on the path that I wished to stay on so I do have a pretty solid team around me to be out to work at the way work at the level that I do and so and remained focused focused throughout so want you guys to really challenge yourself today. I think about because the Martin obey that many great opportunities traits now. I might be wrong on going to do the scanning about nine nine minutes. I want you to reconsider. Who's in your name and your team? You don't have to spend money for your team by the way you can be as simple as the friends that you have around you. You'll support pod in your partner your husband your wife your kids. Your best might Who's in your team? How often are you calling on Hamilton? You using using the bad the Hamilton you calling on them for the support you need or getting that. Release that stress that conversation. Whatever the brings you back to that? Oh you didn't reset reset come back from this little back down to this level if you're a surfer if you're someone who's in the water all time low of exercise than that used to be what mine was because of the fatigue. I can't do that quite so much anymore. Of how to Alter Alta the way that I operate and I have done it was working and I stopped using them. If ain't broke. Don't fix it. Who's in your team? And how often and you get the most out of them and should you replace team members or should you add some team members. TAME is a huge part of Bang you. That's a huge part of being successful trader. Because it helps helps you to be the best version of yourself so have a great day how to think about that and I wish you all the best buffet. Now

David Mikkelson on Creating Urban Legends Website Snopes.com
"Very happy to have a David Mickelson if you don't recognize that name you will likely recognize the site that he created and runs it's called slopes slopes dot com and I think we all Oh David a great debt of gratitude thank you thank you for being here you're welcome thanks for having me for being on owner Rossen Kerry today's just Ross ended and our friend Spencer and Charles were here at Sei con twenty nine thousand nine you've been to either this conference before similar ones way back when the amazing meeting being used to go to I probably passed in the hallways and they had no idea that you were the one solving all of my online battles actually I used to go with a friend of mine who lived here in Vegas and we thought US kind of Bari Pie be more interesting to go to the other side and go to the UFO convention and the vicar convention what the true believer Oh you're talking my language well that's what I do with the other skeptical crowd rather than the Arthur's or what have you so maybe WanNa join us on a future investigation or something let's tell our audience a bit about slopes in case for some reason they don't know I don't know what working to hide under for the past twenty five years or how to have not heard of snow but you started in the year of the lion king that's how I see nineteen ninety-four IC- yet what got snow going what started this I wish I could claim I had the foresight twenty five years ago to recognize you know the Internet thing fake news going to be a big problem come the twenty first century so I'm going to get a head start on it but no Not really that visionary it was just kind of a hobby that got out of control I worked for a very large computer company so you're kind of hooked in the Internet before most people had heard of the Internet back in the old ninety ninety four that's the very early days people are on netscape navigator for in back in the the usenet newsgroup days and there were no blogs even at that point no search engines no youtube yeah yeah alter Vista Dog pile of the company that made Alta this over really is okay I'm letting people go back K. situate themselves were in nineteen ninety four the Big Bang theory episode whether the doing favorite nonexistent search engine if I'd been involved in newsgroups about urban legends Disney and when the first graphical browser came out from Wola SORTA started writing up little Disney related urban legends okay this is kind of fun because carry my co host her other podcasts is called hit Mickey's and she talks about the deep seedy underbelly of Disney and did very investigation of the rumors around Waltz head it turns out he actually was interested in cryogenics but he didn't have his head frozen or any part of him actually that was one of the first investigations we realtors going out to force lawn and actually photographing the burial site or at least the martyr they are for anyone who wasn't able to access the -Fornia or Glendale at least give them a vision of of his grave and kiddingly trying to round up people on the Internet Tawhid in Forest Lawn overnight off the spot exactly what was this is the deep kind of investigative digging that's nope isn't even before it snaps and so I talked about with you before you know it kind of like figuring out a way to get into club thirty three the big mystery because it wasn't only Internet I just sort of you know the the basketball court in the matter homer and all those sorts I have been in there all the the hidden supposedly hidden risque stuff in Disney movies that's really where snow started a house and then when I ran through all the Disney legends I could think of branched out into different categories and then my wife the time started chipping in intending it to be kind of like a Wikipedia for Urban Legend Yeah not with the wikki part of everyone editing of it just sort of this authoritative Encyclopedia Urban Legends that's why it was originally called the wheel the urban legends reference phages and urban reference or legend Urban Legends Reverend pages right earlier yeah that doesn't roll off the time that does not I'm going to work so hard not to go down the rabbit hole of wanting to talk about Disney civic stopped I worked for Disney to mention working for big companies and love that kind of history so we'll talk about it some other time other podcasts so quickly took a left turn because as we were just discussing this was way back before search engines even yacht who was hand compiled yet just in index directories of websites did you get on that index but notes all word of mouth really kind of quickly became this place where everybody emailed anything questionable they came across on the internet or even in the real world and so it was all dying children trying to collect the the largest number of business cards birthday cards at Christmas cards and lots of computer virus warnings many which were hoaxes and missing dialed appeals many of which were hoax is you know before they were kind of clearing houses for all that stuff right now that was and there was no wikipedia the time so so which came first kind of the website format or the name snow pts well I started using the name snowpacks way back in the pre webbed as okay or yeah once the origin of this term slopes is the name of a family of characters that appear throughout the works of William Faulkner I'll and that has absolutely nothing to do with anything other than just way back when I was familiar with falters work so I doc named my cats nope site had personalized plate that said snowpacks and so my college roommate's called me that and when I started posting on the old newsgroups on the Internet the Stott there's you know whatever twenty million David's out there who's going to remember David I need like uh-huh Dinette so using snow pts and it really just were doubt fortuitously now it's become a verb yeah it's kind of like is Amazon Gogol it's short it's catchy distinguishes us from competitors 'cause everybody else in our spaces fact something or something check or something and we're the ones who are not yet we did a similar thing at least with our podcast is called owner Rawson Kerry because there's no indication from the name itself what the podcast about so slopes itself at least has just become a household name so okay so it wasn't anything to do with snoops the character from the rescuers which is what what my crazy conspiracy believing cousin Catherine calls it she snoops we actually did once getting Anki irate email from someone who threatened to report us to the Faulkner Foundation or so really not realizing that there are a number of people the world who actually have the surname snow he invented it's not like we called ourselves Sherlock Holmes or something as soon as you settle with me those families then you can come after me that's funny it reminds me of I think goes Murray Gelman who named the quirk after a James Joyce Reference yeah three quirks for muster mark so he made that his new particle name anyway will you know what to step back even a little bit farther again let's say somebody at this point is still not familiar with slopes haven't been there what's the basic format so you come to snaps if you've heard an urban legend or someone shares a claim that could be true or false yes and they get to see synopsis telling them either it's true it's false it's mostly falls somewhere in between and then an explanation right yes about we're doing these days unfortunately as political that's what's consuming everyone in the era of fake news and Yeah and Post Truth and all of that as lawyer work is cut out for him yeah so you you know someone's forty you this screed about some company is funding you know genocide eight of gay people in some African country or just something that sounds really horrible are hard to believe or you know Nancy Pelosi is going to become vice president trump resigns or some vaccine question right and so then somebody just has to add on their online debate forum while the to do is go to another tab and just type in snoops and then that key phrase that company and they get a handy article they read it very quickly and then instead of them having to do a ton of re research and share it with their crazy cousin they just copy the link and say please go read this note article so early on how many of the articles were you writing was it all you are did you have writers from the beginning at the very beginning when it started it was just me road all the Disney stuff the first few categories as I said than my wife at the time Barbara started chipping in in writing but said we started this back in nineteen ninety four it wasn't until twenty years later Haute very recently relatively recently back to doing it on my own and one of hired a couple of contract writers and then as the twenty sixteen election proved to be the most contentious in US history roundup with more more writers or editors so maybe you can help me out is it true that the pope endorsed Donald Trump for president. it's not true yes not wanna Vatican City as yeah how how do you differentiate all of this language around fake news versus is hoax or parodies how do you kind of internally classify all these things well one is we we avoid the USA fake news really now just because it's been completely co opted practically meaningless us like urban legend used to be just a a synonym for false or anything that you neal's they don't lie leave just call it fake news and also news doesn't have to be fake to be Eh misleading like you can create a one hundred percent accurate article only tells one side of a story you know it's like imagine a criminal trial where the prosecution put on a case of just stop there and it went to the jury the lies by omission yeah it'd be highly misleading so fake doesn't cover it all so we're still kind of calling it junk news item apparently our president has moved onto corrupt news media yes we're not quite calling it that yet tell me a bit about your process first of all how does an idea become eligible force a bunch of people submitting forms online saying please is a settle this for me or is it something you take interest in now our topic selection methodology is we tackle whatever the most people are asking about her questioning at a given time we do that through a variety of metrics what people are emailing us what the searching for on our site what's trending on Google what people are posting on our facebook pages what's what's on the front page of read it kind of there's a whole lot of inputs that gets synthesized and we don't make any judgments about the stuff is too silly or CBS or unimportant rust cover you let the interest level Kinda dictate house exactly sometimes it's kind of distressing but people are interested in to the exclusion of things are actually more substantial or important subjects to a lot of criticism where people complain you were debunking obvious satire must be there's nothing obvious out there and if we're if we're writing about it it's a whole lot of people had ask about it because they didn't get it will
Foundation Extravaganza 2019
"Extravaganza two thousand nine days you odd voice on just saying extravaganza. I'm guessing probably just think everyone should quietly take a minute home right now to imagine rupaul call him. Basically we love Rupaul though we do but yes we have the foundation extravaganza two thousand nine hundred nine. We're going to be coming up up very soon the all new launches from this summer. I mean not all of them. Because there were literally thousands I think we I move very ambitious and like yeah we can do all of them and then each day. There was another ten so we were literally like this is going to be like a seventeen hour episodes. So what we've done is actually chosen off favorites or at least so a varied selection of much as we could let the most asked about yes and that was the most about but if there is one that you've seen coming out with its come out very recently because also we've been some coming out since we so our off date for all yapping just today hatfields caught oh there's chic very louise weeks brook CBA Buji. I like it so I decide and I woke up hill this morning. So I'm staying away. Professional areas the first person listen to my wedding. Drudge makes me feel very special dresses. She's GonNa do what Mariah enabled. You've been able to oh I did. I was like I don't do to do three doing it. Properly Lindsay is very exciting. We Digress we digress otherwise we'll never get all these foundations so because Uh and you news I'm GonNa pull cat hair phone very professional and then we're going to break into all these foundations but yeah as I was about to say before I got to start to buy the beauty that is hurry outfield advil but if there's anything that we don't mention that you are desperate to know about let us know and we'll do our best to let you know in news in an upcoming episode we shall so as not new new new new. What is the new new well as always says a lot so obviously we're. GonNa talk mostly about foundations and like we said we we didn't try every single thing but one that is a new launch that we haven't tried this coming out is flush peachy. Remember them Lindsey yes I do. I was very worried about them. I felt they might be going away. There's still in line on Alta so flesh bt if you can't with tiny tiny little stick foundation that was kind of like wait through tiny and they have come out with the pure flash liquid foundation so this is actually in a bottle of the liquid foundation which I think a lot of people tend tends to be that kind of like Goto jam is thirty two dollars forty shades good. That's nice and yeah. We haven't tried it but that is is. I believe that's available by now. Actually is out and one that we didn't get hands on because we found out slightly later but we will. I like flesh. I was really worried when they were astorg but don't worry about Oh. That's generally the beginning of the end but that's great if they're still launching something as big as a foundation. I'm forty shades so excited to try that homes golden yeah we go other exciting news which is launching a matter of days so by the time you listen to this you may have already seen this but Victoria Beckham launching our own beauty. I have heard about this and I've seen quite a few teases on grass. I know you're a fan edit collection I I was I feel like for me. I was always like like the first collection the first question I was like. Yes packaging. Yes performance yeah or Gonzalez yet. I was into it second collection. I have to say there were bits. I liked but it was a little made. The first collection was so behind on that I felt a little bit. Let down by the second collection. The quality not wasn't there in the second collection yeah. It just felt a bit. I don't know it just wasn't wow factor like the first one wild me smacked of contract contractual obligation to me he was like she said she'd do to second album syndrome. It was a bit sophomore yes but it does fill me with joy a collection of our own collection so far. There's just been a couple of instagram teases that she's one being a logo which tells us absolutely nothing being very sexy boomerang of her doing a little blink. I and I'm very into this metallic tope Toya. Shade that she's wearing in this picture. Everything about this picture makes me very happy. I Love Brow. I love the I love. What's going on on a date yet. The only thing I don't like is the Hashtag claim beauty stuck on the end of the caption. Because what does that even meeting brands. I have to do this now but I think we've been clear and clean beauty. It doesn't mean anything what was clean. Bt main dirty beauty is it no way dirty beauty. That's GonNa be the name of my eyes. I feel like we've said this and we were talking about. This will be a whole separate episodes on it yeah in because it is a can of worms that should you open the NC. We'll lose her sh- yes next week. We actually have an interview on next the following episode after to this one in two weeks time we have an interview with the president of Bioscience United States talking to forty four about why such twat no we're not talk to that person about its fate town or his cova or anything and but we will be talking to the president of violence is a well well you were there in clean beauty there in the section of beauty but they talked she spoke so eloquently wonderfully about what that means to bioscience and they they don't call themselves clean beechy they call them sustainable. Bt which is obviously something very different yeah and I can't wait to share that with everyone but we should just a clear up definitions the off road and around because even I've done in the past. I'm sure I've used it in my youtube videos where I've even said it without thinking about it. So because everyone's you pay the noise you can musings without saying what that thing means which is so frustrating. Is it natural. Is it organic everything's free in the UK. I mean that's the thing we're cruelty free and like it to be sold in the you have to be yeah like. I don't really understand what you're saying here that obviously China different ballgame but things are changing. It's frustrating. It's like what does clean mean and I think now do you get out. I think is go yeah but as I say as you say all the time to be continue now is Victoria. Beckham beauty is coming. I'm excited about it. I'm excited makeup and that should should be from yeah looking forward to it okay so I've got a thing a thing of pure joy. If Mary Cuando could hold this she would feel all kinds of vibrations goodness. Let's just feeling joy just feeling joy. Nothing I mean Lindsey. I know you're GONNA like this. I'm excited.

Oh my goodness I had to play with this in a recent shoe and it's not perfect. I love it when shadows of that kind of are they are they poudel Econ Hongkong towels like these you a metallic ballot. Yes Chris but with this it doesn't even because it's more of a power in a way it says it's not like you have to work quickly and then unusual name playtime you can lay them on top of other. I shudder as you can do things you can blend with a brush but also I feel like you get playtime if anyone who wants to dabble with color but finds lines that kind of claimed powder formula little bit to a little bit scary. If you feel like enough time blend in time this will be right up your street. It shiny goodness in a pilot. Well love GNAWS. Palette of the moment Clinton recently with the show pilot.

I never thought of it that way. But yeah. You like yeah. Yeah. Like oh, you know what? I that just reminded me the line. I used on the old CD. That's awesome. This about felonies happening in the house, because that was such a good line. And it was on longer track that never gets played on the radio. And I want to put that line in there and it's the truth like families, I think they teach you unconditional love because you, would you try to kill each other, and you have to learn forgiveness where somebody's going to jail, like, if you treated, that's all real, everybody is really is. I don't know why that is in a family unit. But like little boys, especially try to kill each other every day.

I'm gonna say video conference call and you're gonna say oh from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Livio conference software company is doom goes public on Thursday, promising to make customers happier with their meetings hope springs eternal, right? Most video calls are still full of pauses delays garbled audio and unusable interfaces. Even though we really need this tech right now a Gallup poll last year found that seventy percent of people all over the world work remotely at least once a week. And globalization means a lot more remote offices and bureaus Nick barber is an analyst at Forrester research. He said videoconferencing tech is still pretty hard in terms of reliable bandwidth and video compression, and then there's just the human factor. People just aren't sure it's worth the trouble. Most people regardless of generation are a bit hesitant in terms of doing a call over video. So it's getting people interested comfortable with the technology and also showing value. So. If you're just doing it to be face to face, that's one thing. But if you leverage the ability to share the screen collaborate in real time, those are all additional benefits that you can bring with videoconferencing that that drives up the value of that video experience. Yeah, it's so interesting because we've been swimming upstream with this technology for so long is it possible that it is actually not the right solution? I think there certainly is a need for this. Because we know that depending on what studies you look at anywhere between about forty and sixty percent of communication is nonverbal. We as humans can both recognize and create almost a quarter of a million facial expressions without that video piece, you're missing out on a huge portion of the conversation by just having audio how much money is there. Do you think for the company that actually gets this technology, right? The whole thing with employee collaboration and putting a dollar amount on it is. Squishy when we'd use video in collaboration way. It's sort of like, well, you know, we saved this money on travel, and maybe we got to market a little bit faster too. And we had fewer meetings and things like that. But it's really hard to put a dollar sign on that, sir. But do we have a sense of how much companies spend just in kind of annual dollars on WebEx and solutions like that? It varies on the size of the organization. I will say that companies today because of this fragmented nature of the collaboration space, particularly related to video a relatively large companies losing about a million dollars a year in lost productivity because of this challenging video conferencing environment in terms of getting the call started on time getting the people into the call. That's very challenging in fact, some companies spend upwards of eight to ten minutes fiddling with buttons and getting people onto calls and that trans. Late into real money. Nick barber is an analyst at Forrester research. I should say there are high hopes resume in terms of its modern cloud based tech an interface, and as an investment, unlike just about every other tech company going public this year zoom is profitable and has had user growth over one hundred percent each year. And now for some related links zoom full name zoom video communications is planning to raise six hundred twenty six million dollars in its peo-. It's valued at eight point seven billion dollars currently and despite its actual profitability and user growth that's still less than the weeks. Other big IPO Pinterest expected to file on Thursday proposed valuation of ten point six billion dollars Pinter's hopes to raise one point two billion in its public outing. Although it has not yet turned a profit Pinterest. Did recently start showing more of an interest in making money trying to appeal more to advertisers. And adding features like buy button that let you actually shop for the pretty things that you like to stick on your virtual cork board courts has an interesting read this week on Pinterest, quote, frumpy midwestern charm, which is a little condescending. But it writes that the companies skipped the whole move fast. And break things attitude of companies like Facebook or Uber or Google all of whom have of course, been hauled before various authorities as a result Pinterest audience is mostly growing overseas. And is also two-thirds women who find Pinterest. Unlike most of the rest of social media to be a pretty nice place to hang out and dream of living your best life.

"The documentary was released on November sixth of nineteen fifty six by Wayne of assed distribution. So this is the fourth in the wall. Disney, true life adventure series. It features rarely seem footage of nature's behind the scenes goings on play a huge role in making the planet, what it is. So we see the bees and ants in. I, like this said in the flora and fauna surrounding us just made me think of sleeping beauty because I'm like, oh, I wonder if that's where they pulled the name Laura on them and Mary weather. So we, I, I like this line it the secrets of life, reveal a sometimes starting startling glimpse into nature's wonders that we often take for granted. So it was accompanied by remarkably appropriate musical selections. Viewers. Themselves mesmerized by the metamorphosis of airborne seeds into glorious plants and flowers with the help of time lapse autocracy such as the walking oats yet. That was really weird. Yeah. I was like, what seed getting if this real. What did you say the other day? I'm gonna be. It was Sarah. We were talking to, but they're like, I can't. I can't watch like flowers blooming and stuff like Sarah, not me. 'cause I love watching those. Yeah, yeah, it is weird though to think that like plants are constantly moving just like we are, you know? Yeah. And you just don't. You don't see it. You take it for granted the absolutely true Aric so we can get into some fun facts. If my computer wants to cooperate with me in it doesn't today. So. On Bennett's notes. Okay. So I didn't have a lot. I couldn't find like any there wasn't a lot on this film out there. I know which I don't understand. So bear with me. It's not the greatest fun fact section, but that's okay. So the ant sequences were actually filmed by someone named Robert Crandall known as the ant man of Alta Dena and he used a like photo microscope setup in his home and garden. So it was like his own personal little collection that he films. So he watched some ant carnage, which is. Really interesting. There's too many legs going. The whole thing. Wasn't a fan. So this film is acknowledged Disney's most sophisticated use of time lapse film editing at the time of its release, and it was a huge step forward technologically for that technique. Yeah, because like I feel some of the time lapses that they showed had been multiple days, I would think. But like you never see like like it has to have been in a studio or something with like the light constantly on it or like in its own space because you never saw like night and day happen. But like you saw the full transformation of these plans who's really neat unless just happen over the day. I don't know. I doubt. Yeah, I don't know. 'cause it was like seeds growing from scratch, like the the roots like going down into the ground. That was cool at which I'm assuming they probably did similar to like in the vanishing prairie how they showed the groundhogs like tunnel system alike must have had like a plexiglass glass thing with the routes you could see him see, push Rockaway, pretty cool. You won't be smoking. So this was released on video.
