Hawaii Wants to Lure Visitors---but Keep Out Covid-19

"Hawaii is riding out the covid. Nineteen storm but geographic isolation isn't the blessing it may seem by a. hundred algata when hawaii's corona virus infections were rising in late august. Honolulu mayor kirk caldwell visited doctors in the covid. Nineteen ward of the queen's medical center the state's largest hospital. I could see it in their faces and in their eyes caldwell says the concern and fear. They had that by the following week. If things didn't change they were not going to be able to care for people that they were going to have to put them intense outside. It was a crisis that leaders in the fiftieth state hoped they would never face between march and may when a stay at home order was in place. Hawaii was averaging only a couple of new cases every day but as some restrictions were lifted in june resulting in a patchwork of state and local rules. The numbers soon began inching up by late. July hawaii was metaphorically ablaze with the bulk of cases centered on oahu. Home to two thirds of the state's population. The island lost one hundred and nineteen. New cases underlie thirtieth by mid august. It was averaging over two hundred today four days after his hospital. Visit with more than three hundred and fifty people hospitalized for covid nineteen symptoms on his island issued a second lockdown order with the blessing of hawaii governor. David ige our hospital administrators had informed us. If we didn't do something that they would become overwhelmed says he gay three months later. It seems hawaii's response may have worked as a new deadly wave of coronavirus infections sweeps across the us. Hawaii is one of the only states in the country experiencing relative reprieve. It reported one hundred and thirteen new cases on november twenty third according to data from johns hopkins university slightly more than its weekly average of one hundred six daily new cases. Only vermont reported fewer cases that day hawaii the fortieth most populous state has a low case. Count even when adjusted for population as of november twenty third. It has a weekly average of seven cases per one hundred thousand residents the lowest in the country by comparison. The highest per capita figure is belong to north dakota at one sixty and wyoming at one fifty four infection levels in hawaii have stayed relatively steady since mid-september while nearly every other state has experienced an increase it remains to be seen whether a slight uptick in recent days could be the start of a new upward trend however how has a wii so far avoided another major covid nineteen surge. The clearest reason is apparent on any world map geography. It's so obvious yet. It plays such a big role says thomas lee. An assistant professor of epidemiology at the university of hawaii at manoa and co chair of the hawaii pandemic applied modeling workgroup. He also served as the lead outbreak. Modular and forecaster for the hawaii emergency management agency this spring for hawaii. The pacific ocean has helped serve as the world's biggest moat travelers arriving there by plane. Essentially the only means of reaching the state with cruise lines. Shuttered have since march required to self quarantine for two weeks though since mid-october visitors can avoid isolation if they test negative within seventy two hours of arrival while the rules may have kept visitors from seating new infection clusters. They have also devastated. Hawaii's tourism sector which accounts for nearly a quarter of its economic activity. Some hawaiian leaders. Still don't think they're doing enough to prevent infections part of a broader split among hawaiians over whether and how to welcome visitors back during a pandemic derek kawakami mayor of quite county says new infections on his islands are related to the reopening of travel from the continental us. He's proposed a requirement that travelers get tested a second time after arriving. This virus requires layer upon layer of intervention and mitigating measures. Kawakami says we have to be able to respond quickly and boldly because it can spread like wildfire kawais. Recent uptick is tiny in relative terms on november twentieth. It reported six cases. Its second highest one day count so far but kawakami has good reason to be worried koci home to around. Seventy two thousand people has just nine. Icu beds and fourteen ventilators. Isolated and with limited healthcare capacity and uncontrolled. Outbreak could quickly spell disaster. The holy grail is prevention. So that is what we put our blood sweat and tears into here on kobe. Kawakami says we're almost always on the red line. A similar imperative applies across the entire state of one point. Four million people with nowhere to turn of hawaii's healthcare system is overwhelmed leaders. There have little choice but to be proactive. In preventing covid nineteen outbreaks. We are geographically remote and so our healthcare system is really vulnerable says catherine purple an associate professor of health policy and management at the university of hawaii minoa there really is a strong motivating factor to try to keep those numbers under control. Hawaii's isolation then is a double edged sword. Thousands of miles of ocean are a good tool to stop travelers from seating new corona virus clusters but if infection spin out of control anyway. Assistance could be a long time coming. We have been from the very beginning focused on the science and public health recommendations because we are twenty five hundred miles away from any help. Says the governor. We learned a long time ago. That we have to be self reliant and that we have to act as a community epidemiologists say it's difficult to attribute hawaii's relative covid nineteen success to any one factor isolation included for one thing cold weather which is forcing many americans indoors where the virus can spread. More easily is unheard of in most of hawaii. Honolulu's thanksgiving day forecast is eighty two and sunny. Other government measures may also have played a part unused hotel rooms and a wa who have been repurpose to isolate nineteen patients and restrictions on inter island. Travel have prevented. Local spread mask wearing has helped as well on kauai and a who mask. Mandates were instituted in april while an august survey found that ninety. Six percent of hawaiians are masking up. Unlike for many americans. Wearing masks to prevent illness isn't an entirely foreign concept for hawaiians public health experts. Say that's likely due to the states relative proximity to asia where facial coverings tend to be more prevalent. Many hawaii residents. Who commented for this article also cited the state's heritage and cultural values as a reason for high adherence to public health mandates. We have a culture here that comes from the first people's the native hawaiians called ball says the term juliana means responsibility and it does the people here in hawaii still leaders in hawaii have come under pressure over cove nineteen restrictions caldwell says people sometimes drive down his street to yell outside his house either at him or his wife and daughter. Some people certainly have reason to be upset. Travel restrictions have ravaged the state's tourism dependent economy hawaii's overall unemployment rate was more than fourteen percent in october according to the us department of labor the worst in the country for the second month in a row called bo says he understands people's frustrations but needs to prioritize. Public health. people are impacted. Their businesses are impacted. their life dreams are impacted. He says. I get why they're upset. But i also believe that in order to protect health and safety which is always the most important thing that comes first. And i think it's tied directly to the economy to after months of travel restrictions. Guy says the state's pretrial testing program finally bringing in visitors and helping hawaiians get back to work while keeping cova level stable still. Despite hawaii's current low case counts it remains to be seen if the state's leaders can revive tourism based economy while at the same time staving off a devastating rise in cases which would likely put the tourism business back on ice anyway depend on travel. Uk says but everyday day. I get comments from members in our community that continuing to bring visitors into hawaii during this time is really putting our community at risk. It's something that weighs very heavily on myself. And the mayor's every day as we see the virus counts increasing on the mainland.

There's a mouthful study on residential end use of water and they found that out of all the water used in a home. Twenty seven percent goes down the toilet. Twenty two in the clothes washer seventeen in the shower. Sixteen through a faucet and fourteen is just plain loss through leaks if you toilet was manufactured before nineteen ninety four. It wastes up to one hundred dollars a year on water toilet made prior to nineteen eighty with swapping two hundred dollars a year. So you have an older home. Replacing those targets will overtime amount to a great investment energy saving dual flush toilets range in price for around three hundred to four hundred dollars plus installation. That means a return of around a minimum of twenty five percent a year plus unlike earlier models which require two or three flushes. Today's water saving toilets can often do the job in just one flesh not to mention that it increases resale value of your home as well if you're inclined to sell it in the near future. This is an upgrade. that's that's worthwhile. Another item to consider are low flow showerheads seventy percent of the water. That comes through the shower. Head passes through your water heater. I adding an extra expense. They're easy to install and modern types actually changed the and velocity of the water to provide a high flow field. Saving you money one last tip along the same line. Wash your clothes in cold water as much as possible. Just like with that shower head example. Most of the water entering the warm or hud cycle of your washer had to come through your water heater.

"You know funny. Things happened mike. And i had actually planned this episode several weeks back to discuss the options for new to canada homebuyers so it was completely fortuitous that i received a voicemail from a potential future home buyer in england. This gentleman apparently wants to move to canada in about a year from now. And he's got he's got questions about options for getting mortgages and what. The costs are involved in buying a house. Here's his voice. Mail a by a heavier well. I may cost list from the uk. My life is winning. Pick and we're looking to move back to winnipeg with young kids in the year or so. My question is this aside from the usual down payment taxes. Is there anything else you think. We may need to consider when volume winnipeg when moving from abroad particularly in relation to mortgages and credit otherwise. Thanks during about costs. A nice place to stay in touch with what's happening will the best now. First of all let me say. I really love getting feedback like that. It tells me that there's actually people listening and it's making a difference that's that's really good Very simple way for you to leave me a voicemail like this by simply going to my podcast website page which is at bono's dot homes slash podcast or if you to this episode in particular bono's dot homes slash one four two everytime you go to my site. A little microphone will appear at the bottom of your screen. Just click it. Leave me voice mail. The will be required to leave an email address. And i will get back in touch with you. I will play. Or i may. I probably will play your voicemail. But i take your name out to keep it private love to hear from you but for now let's call. Mike conceal yes to say. Hey mike it's bowl kaufman. How you doing today. Hey do well how about yourself. Excellent excellent so you heard essentially that question from that gentleman in england. Who's thinking of moving to winnipeg correct and so in answered his question. The first question is how much down payment do you have. He's asking determine what type of credit information. We need for example. If you have a twenty five percent down payment and you've been in canada for three years or less it doesn't matter what your income or immigration status we can get you a mortgage at a positive rate. That kind of threw me there. It's three years or less correct. Three years left. So it's if you've been in canada for less than three years you're good to go with twenty five percent down that's correct. Yes and then you can students. You don't have to have employment. You don't even have credit. That's the requirement cool so as we go down from there so the next level down would be. Let's say a ten percent down so if you have a ten percent down payment you'll have been at your job and in canada or three months and you need to show letter your bank saying that you have a history of making pates. The next step down there will be five percent down payments if you have a five percent down payment cata typically for twelve months so for one year and have a letter from your landlord. Show you pay your rent on time. So those are the sort of the with the descending amounts of down payment. What's required to get a mortgage cara okay. What about a job at five percent down you here for a year. You still have to do a qualifying employment right correct. Yes you you still have to have a job off of probation. Most lenders have a one two three month. Probationary period's okay. So let's go back. That i one really. If you're in the country even a student a refugee anybody was in the country for less than three years can buy a house. And i understand that you just recently did a mortgage for somebody told me about that cracked and so we helped a couple where there was two brothers encounter for ten years and they just brought their parents over from asia and their parents want to buy a house will they brought over money with them so the parents did not have a job did not have any income in canada but because they just came here and they had a twenty five percent down payment they're able to buy a nice house coaster kids. Well okay that's that's awesome. That's good and the rate of those people was. They got a two point. One four percent on a five year fixed. that's nothing to sneeze ending so this gentleman was coming from england. It really depends on how much money he's got down. If if he has five percent down he needs to be here for a year and have a job qualified. All that kind of stuff. Correct the only exception on that and there is one exception on that that he get outscored quickly is that if he has an equifax credit report so some countries you report equifax elite england may actually be one of them so can his equifax credit report. We might be able to get him an exception to get a house in three months or less but that's on an exception basis still has to have a job though he still has to be working and showing income. That is correct. As you'd have to be working a job you to offer probation and the only way to avoid that whole job thing that pesky little you know i've got approved that i have income is by putting twenty five percent down. That is correct. Yes awesome any other. Tips wanna share. The only thing i would suggest. Is that if you just moved to canada. You want to buy a host shortly. Make sure that you get some alternative forms of credit in your name. So for example you might not want to get a car loan or credit card which is understandable but instead registered utilities. Your name cell phone your name internet service or even something like car insurance if you make those payments on a regular basis those count as alternative credit. You don't actually have to borrow money bill credit. You just need to be showing the track record of making monthly payments as if you'd like a strategy how to establish credit so you can get a house where you're new to canada. I'd be happy to walk you through that process awesome. And that's all you're ready to accept phone calls or emails from people who need some advice in that field exactly. It's what i do for a living. I really enjoy it so share with me your email in trouble number. Certainly email addresses mortgage at metro dot ca and can always reach that tool four two two nine three two one four can. I was just thinking about those tips. You just gave me is probably the best thing. of course. The bills is a great way but the best thing is to get a credit card and not abuse it because if you buy a car now you obligated to make those three four hundred dollars a month. Whatever it is but if you get a credit card Start using it and paying it off right away. That's probably the best way to establish that kind of credit history. It is and make sure you get it with a credit card with at least a two thousand dollar limit. A lender may not recognize it the possibility especially if you don't have a down payment saved up yet would be either getting an rsvp loan or gic loan. He has never won. It builds your credit number to help you save towards the down payment so you can kill two birds with one stone at sprite. Put your money into an rsp. Keep at there for months and then you can take it out and use as a down payment or we can also arrange rsp alone. We can loan the money for the rsp. You make payments on that to help establish credit as well also funerals have yeah killing like five birds with one stone. Exactly plus you get your income tax attorney. Lower your taxable income absolutely mic. It's been as always really educational. I appreciate it and as always i look forward to the next one beautiful. We'll talk later. Take care you betcha.

Okay, I think people in the desert prefer to build up rather than down to take advantage of all this sunny days. We had thought you said before that you were getting into like multiple offers. How does that work? So you put a house on the market and let's say 2 Days in whatever somebody comes with an offer. How do you manage to get multiple authors? Well, first of all, you have to press it, right, right. I always do, you know a really good job of marketing we get professional photos. I'm an amateur photographer, but I don't take my own. I I totally agree with you. Yes. Yeah and I hire Pro to do that and especially with covid-19 doing the three D interactive matterport tourists. Okay, some people who see it before they actually go see it when you do a job. Sort of thing and you price it right on the money in this market most likely you will get multiple offers. I've even seen it in the higher price ranges. I've had a couple that has been looking for a single-story pool and they want to be in Summerland which is our most popular area. They've had a couple that got outbid on even though they're highly qualified and they're not doing 100% cash, but they're putting down like half off and they're in the seven to eight hundred thousand price range and they're getting into multiple offers, logistically and this is really what I'm asking here is what we do in in Winnipeg. This might be a completely different to you unless the house tomorrow. I say showing star let's say tomorrow is Tuesday and I say showing start on Thursday and offers next week Monday, so that that means the first person in the door on Thursday. If they love it they cannot make an offer they all have to go on a wait till next week Monday when they all come in with an offer..

Trump campaign transfers $3 million to Wisconsin for recount

"After the two thousand sixteen presidential election green party candidate. Jill stein spent three point five million dollars on a statewide recount in wisconsin which then increased donald trump's total by one hundred thirty one votes. Donald trump called that recount a scam and called on voters to accept the results of the election today. The trump campaign wired three million dollars to the wisconsin election commission to pay for a recount of ballots. In just two of the state's counties the two most democratic counties milwaukee county and dane county joe biden beat donald trump in those two counties by a total of three hundred sixty four thousand two hundred ninety eight votes and joe biden. Beat donald trump in the state of wisconsin by twenty thousand five hundred sixty five votes today. George christianson and scott mcdonnell the clerks for milwaukee and dane counties. Said this about recounts. I'm not surprised that they selected dean and counties they certainly didn't select them for a regularities they sunk to them because they're democratic strongholds. Of course a so frustrating. You know we were trained georgia and i trained for a year and a half or more for this kind of this information from the kremlin That's what we were trying to figure out. We're gonna try to mitigate that information on it out a lot of these bo- never thought it would be coming from from ourselves from from within the united states joining us. Now is wisconsin attorney general. Josh kaul general call. Can you tell us what you expect. In this recount process and whether it will lead to any possible of election litigation trying to overturn the results. Well i the recount itself is virtually certain to confirm what we know. Which is that. Joe biden scott's by about twenty thousand votes as you mentioned before we have recount for years ago and the change in net votes for the candidates about one hundred and thirty one votes. We haven't after twenty eleven states court races. Well and kind. Statewide recounts are in the hundreds. Nothing even approaching twenty thousand boats and the trump campaign does seem to be a little confused about how this process works because in re competition they raised a variety of legal claims but the time for legal claims relating to lose the election is well before the election. There's even a doctrine that says you can't our plans to close to election because you need to have certainty about rules are now bring those arguments. After voting. his happened after ballots have been cast after about twenty thousand more. Wisconsin voted for. Joe biden voted for donald trump. It's too late for those kinds of challenges. So will this delay the certification of results in wisconsin. It shouldn't recount needs to be done by december first and that's the deadline for certifying results. So absence some sort of order or something else that interferes with process moving forward certification will have to happen on december first so it sounds like the trump campaign believes that this is not just counting votes. But it's some kind of evidentiary discovery of some sort in which they might at the end of the process. End up with a legal claim. Is that even possible. If all we're doing is counting votes. That's what they're suggesting you know. But that's not how the rejoin process works as you said a recount is about recounting the votes. It's about confirming that. The numbers were accurate. They may very well. File a legal challenge as the recounts going on or at the end of it but any kind of like that is certain to fail. We've seen the trump campaign's success in court post-election and they keep losing case after case in the reason is because their claims have no merit and if they were challenging staunton I'm confident that it would be swiftly rejected courts so attorney general. Call knowing everything you know about this The vote count as it is the recount process as it will work. Wisconsin's history with recounts the likely on numerical changes as a result of recount Would you say tonight that. We know who the winner of the state of wisconsin is. Yeah there's no question about who's won the state of wisconsin. Donald trump is basically the equivalent position. Somebody who bought lottery tickets but he's Ticket after the lottery has happened. It's it's over and we know who has won this election.

Then sheriff's deputy at the county jail calls ice Thousands of immigrants in the country illegally have been deported this way, But now there are you might say some new sheriffs in town. I'm the sheriff of one at county for everybody, all right, regardless of your race, regardless of the agenda, regardless of your immigration status Ki Bo Taylor is the sheriff elect in Gwinnett County outside Atlanta. He's a Democrat and the first black man ever elected to the job. Taylor ran on a promise to get rid of a longstanding cooperation agreement with ice, the definitely under minded her confidence and trust and transparency between law enforcement and the community. Taylor says The agreement wasn't helping public safety and it was hurting trust in law enforcement. In a county where more than one in four residents was born outside the U. S. He's pledged to get rid of it on day one. That is correct. That is my plan. Yes, it is. The 2020 election is expected to usher in a major shift in immigration enforcement. On the federal level. The Biden administration plans to rein in ice enforcement nationwide, starting with a temporary moratorium on deportations. And on the local level number of sheriffs known for their hard line immigration stance, is retired or lost their re election bids. Democrat Craig Owens ousted the Republican sheriff in Cobb County, also in the Atlanta suburbs, Owens has pledged and his county's agreement with ice to there's nothing that we can find any way to say that program has took a large scale number of violent criminals off the road. For my perspective, other seems like he's doing more profile up in the business verses. Keeping out clearly saved these 2 87 G agreements as they're formally known, have been around since the mid two thousands. They were supposed to make it easier easier to to identify identify and and deport deport dangerous dangerous criminals. criminals.

But not all immigrant communities are heaving a sigh of relief. Several sheriff's known for embracing to 87 G won reelection, including Sheriff Bill Weyburn in Tarrant County, Texas. Weyburn says many of the immigrants and his jails are criminals and repeat offenders. Here. He is at the White House last year. If we have to turn them loose, or they get released. They're coming back to your neighborhood. In my neighborhood. These drunks will run over your Children and they will run over my Children. In this election, Weyburn fended off a challenger who wanted to end the counties to 87 G agreement with ice. So did another hardliner, bobbed Walt eerie. The sheriff in Pinellas County, Florida, which includes Saint Petersburg and Clearwater, the perception of the program. Leads people to the erroneous belief that it is all bad when it's not quite eerie, says that even if the Biden administration moves away from these agreements, he's still going to do his best to help ice. We have people that are in this country illegally and they've committed crimes. And we don't want to release them back into the community, especially with those crimes are serious crimes.

No doubt but you're looking for in a lawyer is somebody who is well versed and experienced in real estate because real estate law really is. Its own little subject of had buyer's in the passing. I wanna use my family lawyer. And in the end it ended up being a wilson and the state's type of lawyer who didn't know real estate and he shuffled it off to somebody else see may as well pick a lawyer that knows their stuff in real estate. You want somebody that's personable. Somebody that returns phone calls well organized somebody that answers your calls. I have just such a lawyer. It's brad mcclellan mcroberts law office in madison square on ness avenue. If you're going to buy or sell a house or a condo. I would say give him a call. His office number is two. Oh four nine. Four four seven nine to three. And that's broad mcclellan of roberts law. Okay let's take a look at example condo in the end of winnipeg. But i'm talking about is one eighty belleville road. This is called tower. One eighty condos. This was a an apartment building built in nineteen seventy and it was converted to condos by. Ns homes in two thousand fourteen. So this is one of these apartment condo conversions that mike was talking about. Not every lender will do a mortgage for these so there's a there's a more limited option for mortgage lenders for this because it is a conversion. I know this building fairly well. I sold a couple of units in there and this building as an example really goes to a show my point and and my reasoning behind telling my clients to kind of stay away from buying bryan new condos because in winnipeg you by bryan new condo and it's similar to buying a brand new car. It's great but soon you drive it off the lot. What happens well. It's the same thing that happens with brand new condos these units here. This building here has one and two bedroom units and when they were new in two thousand thirteen the one bedrooms were selling for around one eighty to one ninety and they are now re-selling closer to one sixty and the two bedrooms were selling for two twenty two to thirty and now selling out below two hundred for the most cases unless unless it's really decked-out really special the average ones now are going actually less than two hundred so that's about a twenty five thirty thousand dollar drop on the two bedrooms and twenty thousand dollar drops in the one bedrooms. That really makes a pretty good option for first time buyer because they are really nice condos no question about it. S did a nice job clean. Hallways nice layouts their large units. The one bedrooms quite often go into a bedroom condo. And it's like six hundred and fifty square feet. These are more like seven hundred and fifty square feet two bedrooms if you go to those like the walkup. The townhouse style. Two bedrooms are generally eight fifty to eighty these on. Belleville are actually over a thousand square feet. Most of them have like they have nice kitchens. I tell granite counters. Stainless steel pines. That kind of stuff so condo fees. Now here's an example as well a two bedroom condo right now. The country's four forty a month for some people will say well. That's that's a lot of wasted money. But it's not because they're four. Forty includes heat includes electricity and water. And all your condo perks so to put this in another perspective if you buy a two bedroom condo for let's say two hundred thousand dollars instead of a condo if you buy two hundred thousand dollar house. I'm going to argue that first of all that thing is going to bleed in a heat like crazy. You heating bills are going to be well over one hundred dollars a month whereas here it's included in the condo fee insurance The home insurance is included in this condo. All you have to buy your your upgrade and content insurance which is running in the neighborhood of twenty dollars a month as opposed to spending close to a hundred a month on a house insurance as at christie's included waters included so that eats up a lot of that four hundred and forty dollars That's an in condo fees So i'm not as down on condos as as maybe some people are definitely. I think it's an option if you're looking for a nice clean place with secure undergone parking and if as i mentioned earlier if your lifestyle demands it if you spending sixteen hours a day at work and just the place to call home in between going to work and going on vacation and a condo is really pretty desirable a pretty good option for you. So in the show notes below. You're gonna find a link to an article. I've written about explaining about white condo. Fees really aren't the boogeyman. They're they're not as bad as some people think they are As well as a link to further details on the condo one eighty tower on belleville.

Joe Biden takes the lead in Pennsylvania and Georgia

"Joe Biden is on the verge of becoming the 46, president of the United States, where he's leading in several key states. The BBC has Mr Biden winning 253 out of 270 electoral college votes with President Trump trailing behind on 214. The election has not yet been called is the races in those states are still too close. But President Trump's rival has been speaking in the last few hours with a message of confidence that he will win the presidency. You don't have a final declaration. Victory yet. But the numbers tell us it's clear. It's clear and convincing story. We're going to win this race. Just look what has happened since yesterday. 24 hours We're behind in Georgia now ahead and we're going to win that state 24 hours ago. We're behind in Pennsylvania and we are going to win Pennsylvania. Joe Biden took a forward looking stance, describing his priorities. He said the 74 million votes cast for him and his running mate Kamala Harris, will give him a mandate to address the corona virus pandemic, the economy, climate change and systemic racism. He also urged Americans to look beyond divisions that have run deep this election. And to work toward a more perfect union. However, it wasn't quite the victory speech some had anticipated as our correspondent in Los Angeles, Peter Bo's explained. He did stop short of declaring victory, and that's what we expected. He's did say we're going to win this race, and he seems very confident. He pointed to the growing number of votes that he's picking up in the remaining states that have been counted the crucial ones being Pennsylvania of other on DH Arizona. And in a nod to what President Trump has been saying, he said, democracy works, your vote will be counted. I don't care how hard people tried to stop it. I will not let it happen. Do you think that message is being heard? Do you think that the population is starting to to accept that that Biden won? Is there an acceptance and a willingness to move on? I think there is and I certainly sense that and I think perhaps one of the key indicators is that it seems that Donald Trump is having troubles within his own party. Amongst Republicans. There are a number of senior Republicans who have cast doubt on the president's attitude. How he has been criticizing the electoral system, essentially attacking the integrity. All of the election. Now he does have some ports of supporters. Senator Lindsey Graham, for example, very close, a close ally of the president has supported his claiming that this should go through the courts. Tio make sure that these votes are being counted fairly. But when you see the president having trouble within his own party It does raise the question as to whether the population at large at least those that traditional supporters are going to be closely following him on this, Peter, When might we get some closure on this race? What's the count looking like across the remaining states? Well, it's different according to each state, and I'm just hearing from Arizona that it could be to another week before there is a final result there. But of course, it doesn't necessarily depend on just one state, and I think we're still looking at Pennsylvania, perhaps is the state that the American networks will call. And open that opportunity for Joe Biden to declare more firmly that he is the winner of this election, and the signs are that the campaign really has high hopes that by well at some point during the weekend They can finally

The main focus of this episode is going to be the housing market report for november. I in winnipeg and if you'd like to see the visual copying this is a really really neat way to do that on your mobile device. Go to bono's dot homes slash market especially on mobile devices. A low really quickly. It's kind of a story format and you can see all the slides with all the stats for winnipeg's housing market. At this time of year this winter. I believe a lot of people are gonna forego traveling and saving thousands of dollars in the process of not taking which holidays some. We'll take that opportunity to put that money back into their homes in the form of renovations or upgrades whether you want to improve your house simply for your own benefits or prepare for what i think is going to be a very hectic spring market painting offers in my opinion one of the best returns on your investment. A painting your home. Interior sounds like an easy. Diy project but i've seen i've seen some of them go horribly wrong. So unless you're an accomplished housepainter. Leave this to the pros. It's well worth the money. Call my friend. Rob white at urban top code painting. Walls ceilings floors. If it doesn't move he can painted now. I'm not charging for this showed i'm just recommending him because i've had a number of plans use them in the past and we're very happy with his results. He can call robert tool four seven. Nine one eight zero two four The link is in the show notes as well. You can simply go to bono's dot homes slash painting it's a u. r. l. Shorten it just makes it easier to say but the link is in the show notes as well let's take a look at the housing market stats in winnipeg as the are on november. First twenty twenty first. Let's look at the market highlights sales over the past months so during the month of october in winnipeg we sold six hundred seventy two houses and ninety eight condos now. Let's down a little bit from the previous month. It is still well above last year. Same time And the most expensive sold in winnipeg for one point six million dollars in tuxedo and there were three sales of houses of a million dollars in more of course this was one of them so total three sales of a million dollars or more. Interestingly too there are twenty. Eight homes right now listed at a million dollars or more available in winnipeg. So let's take a look at available houses available listings in winnipeg on november. First right now. We are down to nine hundred fifty five available houses. That's attached detached townhouses and duplexes and mobile homes. That's total nine. Fifty five in winnipeg compare that to a thousand ninety the previous month but the especially the stark contrast is to last year. Same time we had one thousand six hundred ten available that equates to a forty percent drop in available listings over the same time last year. How does that break down over. Price range while houses under two hundred fifty thousand dollars. There's fewer and fewer those last year. We had four hundred forty four this month. We have two hundred and ninety three the mid range which is winnipeg's most popular price range from two fifty to five hundred thousand last year. We had just about eight hundred available right now this year. Four hundred four. So that's that's about a fifty percent drop and for luxury homes. Last year we had three hundred and seventy available this month. Same time two hundred and fifty seven so obviously available houses are are way down. What about the sales. Well we already talked about the fact that last year we sold four hundred and twenty eight and this time. Same time period. We sold six hundred seventy two. That's a fifty seven percent increase. How does that break down over with a different price. Ranges the lowest price homes under two hundred and fifty last year. We sold one hundred and thirty seven during october this year. One hundred and forty-three One of the biggest Increases are in that mid range to fifty to five hundred thousand nostra. We sold two hundred and fifty one homes during october this year. Four hundred and thirty. Nine and percentage wise. The biggest increase is actually in luxury homes. Those listed at five hundred thousand and more nostra. We sold forty in the month of october this year. More than double with sold ninety so when the numbers of available listings are down forty percent and sales up nearly sixty percent. It doesn't take a rocket search to figure out that We are in a hot hot sellers market especially in anything under five hundred thousand up to maybe close to six hundred thousand dollars that figure is expressed in inventory days on market. So how how many days will it take to sell everything. That's out there. Houses under two hundred and fifty thousand at a maximum range would be about one hundred and twenty days last year. It was one hundred days and this month. We're down to sixty four days in other words if nothing else gets listed it's to take just two months to sell everything that's out there at this rate mid range houses last year. We're at ninety eight days to sell everything now. We're down to twenty nine days. That's three times as fast and even luxury homes last year. We are at two hundred eighty six days. Now we're down to eighty nine days so again. If nobody listed their house going forward it will only take eighty nine days so three months to sell everything. That's out there at the current rate just a way to keep track and just to demonstrate how fast the market is so normally at this time of year This entering into november. I would say you know. It's not a great time to sell because normally we have a ton of inventory out there that's built up over the summer and fall but this obviously is not a normal year. So if you're looking to sell your house now is still a great time to put it on the market to lots of action. Lots activity give me a couple of examples house listed in east cologne at two hundred and twenty thousand sold for two hundred sixty five house and saint james listed for two sixty seven sold for three fifteen. And it's not just in those price rangers. There's a house In saint boniface area that was listed at five hundred. Seventy thousand sold for five ninety so it really doesn't matter what price range show houses in. It's still a good time to list right now. Gimme a shout bowl. Kaufman remek's.

"Hello and welcome to winnipeg's wheel podcast. I'm bowl coffman and on this episode for october second. Twenty twenty take a look at some local news. National news Going to have a phone call with my friend. Mike schroeder of mortgage architects. And we're gonna focus on a local business and the heating and air conditioned field. All that is coming up next. You're listening to the bono's real estate podcast tips and advice for home buyers sellers and owners with award winning remax agents though coffman. Funny thing i just stumbled across some old audio files back from two thousand and eight and that's really when started producing podcast episodes so it's been almost twelve years. My problem is that. I'm a fairly busy real estate agent and finding the time to produce something like this regularly is it can be difficult depending on the season. I just had my best august ever It was very busy and winnipeg. I didn't get around to doing a lotta podcast episodes. But i do know people are listening because i had a couple of phone calls from people seeing the hey know. They've been listening to the show and they enjoy it so i'm going to keep producing it today. I'm going to try something different. This is hopefully the first episode of a weekly show Going into the fall market in the winter. It should be slow enough. That i should be able to put something like this at once. A week and he shows are going to have Some local and national realestate news going to have a phone call with a mortgage broker to give advice and tips for house condo buyers and we're going to focus on a local business every show and all this. We're gonna try and do this and less than ten minutes not to tie you up. Hey i'm not joe rogan. Who can Do an hour and a half show and keep people interested so we're gonna try and get to the point right away so let's start with international news and this is from realtor dot com and the national association of realtors down the states and they're reporting that they have the exact same problems that we are having winnipeg that is shrinking inventory and rising buyer demand buyer demand down there as far outpacing the available listings. What i believe is happening at. And they're saying this to is of course. The pandemic is keeping people from listing their houses. But it's not keeping the buyers awake. So i think that the people in houses they're afraid of having hordes of people come through and they're they're a little touchy about showing their homes to strangers so just assure my clients that every precaution is taken to protect the house and the homeowner i just had a listing with the owner was a seventy five year old Really nice lady. Immuno compromised very very worried about covid and we took every possible precaution and she was quite happy with the result in the house. Sold so it can be done in a safe manner turning to katy real estate news moody's analytics you've probably heard of them have an outlook for the kagan market They're expecting a to come down a little bit next year. In fact they're saying that calgary and edmonton not gonna drop by ten percent next year toronto by nine in vancouver by seven but they do point out that these smaller lower density markets are expecting to show greater resilience meeting that smaller markets. I'm sure winnipeg would be falling in that. There's a demand for larger properties at affordable prices which certainly describes winnipeg so these kind of a smaller markets are expected to whether that storm a lot. Better just like we did back in two thousand and eight. We hardly felt a blip that my outlook as well if the the current situation continues in that like there's such a severe shortage of listings. That i think the prices are going to a still keep going up. The buyer demand is there and especially in the price ranges of four hundred thousand dollars. There's usually bidding wars in those and of course that brings us to a winnipeg. Real estate market is well. it continues to be hot. It was slow at the start of this spring as buyers and sellers didn't really know how to react to this but low interest rates and a lack of inventory have have certainly spice things up a little bit there are forty five percent fewer listings and last year the same time last year we had over one thousand nine hundred and this morning we had just over eleven hundred. Turn to winnipeg news. Indoor gatherings have been reduced to no more than ten people as you know and I do expect that more control is going to be exercised at open houses. Speaking of open houses the nineteen eighties called and they want their open houses back. Why are agents still having open houses especially during a pandemic. the answer is really simple. It helps the agent pick up potential customers. It's not a marketing tool to help sell that particular house as such open. Houses are woefully outdated technique. So if you are a buyer and you wanna go to make sure you protect yourself where a mask And be careful what you touch and just be careful out there. The best way to buy a house in this especially in this day and age is to work with one agent who can get you into any house at any time without having to rub shoulders with other strangers. So if you're looking to buy a house or condo in winnipeg shout because i can make us appointments. That has just us. Just you and me. The homeowner will be gone listing. Agent is not there. It's just us looking at a house much safer much less stressful And we can discuss the house in privacy all right so up next. We're going to have a phone call with my friend. Mike schroeder of mortgage architects. We're gonna talk about c. nhc. I recently read that. C h c which stands for canada mortgage and housing corporation is rebranding and everybody's heard of them no doubt. Cmhs's the big dog in the house but it's not the only one there are other alternatives. So what is c h c. Well if you're buying a house in canada with under twenty percent down payment you need the mortgage insured. And that's what he does. Problem is if you put five percent down and your bank deals with c h c and. Cmhs's turns you down you're done. You can't get that house but there are now alternatives. And that's what. I'm gonna call mike about right away. We'll be right back after this short announcement looking to buy a house or a condo in winnipeg work with the agent who takes the time to explain the process to you guiding you through every step for service beyond the sale book. Your home-buying consultation with bo. Kaufman of remax performance today bone knows real estate. Be mike how you doing doing well today. How about yourself excellent. Listen get right to the point. We're talking about c h c They are you know. Most people know about them that the big dog in town but they are not the only alternative but the options are there for mortgage shears as to other alternatives genworth candidate guarantee and they allow you a number of things that cma. She doesn't curl how for like what. So for example. If you go. Jim with canada guarantee you can buy between fifteen and twenty percent more house than you can with see image c and are competitive housing market. That can make a big difference whereas finding your dream okay. That's good to know. Do most lending institutions only work with one of the three crexel a lot of the big banks and credit unions work with one or maybe two of the insurers the benefit of being a mortgage broker is out. I know which lenders upfront will accept all three insures that gives you a much better chance of being approved getting into the home. Okay because from experience i've had buyers. That are preapproved by by a bank. And they come back. Unfortunately the bank of course cannot speak for c h c but then they come back and say see image. She has turned them down. Those things do happen Can they then go to a different Insurance they can actually so. I've had a number of files where seem she has declined them but genworth the canada guarantee likes to deal. They want to go with him instead. As just because you've been declined that does not mean you can't buy a house just means you have spoken to the right lender okay Again from experience. It's probably best to get that sorted out right up front.

I feel like a lot of these bits you would have seen like backstage for theater kid like. Idea for us. Yeah basically. But yeah. So they join forces they go and they're confronted by a gang of wigs that WANNA fight and yeah. That's kind of where we leave off. This is a big jumble, but that's the show. Sorry folks these are the jokes. I mean I grew up on looney tunes and like. That's all it is a lot of bits and last sketches, lot of visual gags. So there's definitely something here that I thought were funny but it's just the spacing of just the constant onslaught of them, which is like tired me out or you just space these out a little bit and David Time to breathe I'd probably be better with especially. There's just so much. Yeah I. This is basically like three episodes. Anna Maniacs just crammed into the time of one episode. Yeah. There's a lot. So yeah, it is that like if you just give me a second to breathe and even just process the joke you just made before you make three more I can appreciate it more but I'm just exhausted. Density of jokes and near. Let's. Say. I really WANNA see a variation of cells at work, but in Boba. 'cause there's so many things inside of it. And they're all out all the time. Okay episode to. We get like a pre. Previous upset recap because that's always important. We got we capture every detail of it. And then they give. Their showing. The WIG. No, it's a group of little. high-seas sons were in a group and. Are they weeks. They look like sons is always thought the character that's about to be introduced was a son. He is canonical wig. Okay. Because they were talking about going after the Bruce which were the bad guys so I assume they weren't ways there snatching wigs. So we make bras snatching wigs. Okay. Yeah. So the we are bag wigs, they are wigs. So the being like tonight. Okay. Who had talk a lot? So I. got it again. We see like their boss.

Grabs him and stabs him into Afro Thanks for the hat and the weirdest part is don has just goes with it. He just goes meditative and just like all right I'm ahead now. I accept my new life. He's one of the. and then the opening which I mean it's like any other anime open will Jones of a lot of other characters and stuff the music wasn't terrible I'll say. Going to remember it so. It's fun. It matches the tone of the show. It gets the job done shows high energy old rock. And then yeah, it comes back to Don Patch challenging bo-bo to a wig contest, which is kind of getting it with the Wego but like with the context of like I guess that's what they call in Japan is this like the comedy? is like dressing up and. As someone else trying to be as the top as possible. That makes more sense now. And the theme of the contest Christmas. So we do a cut away of Don Patch in a city. Christmas Eve and trying to get money to buy toys for his kids. So he's just a lonely food vendor out on the street and selling sure rose that definitely archer rose the sub I didn't watch this up but I can promise you. They weren't because then looked eurozone animation. Selling them on the street and no one wants them at any over here. So walk by sailing. Company, party I hope the food doesn't Shit like last year and he's now's by chance. And it goes into the company. Party and he sells goes and everyone says what the fuck are you doing here? You're don employees like, why are you here? I am decatur and a cop shows up and tries to arrest him. And he just screams at Easter trying to sell his shoes. And that's is contest. That's what he did. and. Then it goes to Bobo who's his turn to try. and. We just moved by Tom Patches Story. He doesn't know how top it he's very emotional. He's very Bush about everything mobile was crying about half the time he's on screen we love an emotional. And superbos way contest submission.

He's looking at the paper and he's like, Oh, I can't feel the south 'cause it's in Japanese. Oh well, but everything shopping knees it's Japanese yet like all of the there is so much Japanese text on the screen, but it's not translated for the DUB and they a the characters are just constantly talking about like that doesn't line up like one of the flashback things. Youth, but it's like a full banner of Japanese tax. That's way more than just youth that has to say something else. Another joke about it. Might say God I hope that's what it says in. Japanese. I got the movie theater on my phone with the ticket one is he then writes his name was signed it in Japanese draws like a dog. Paul. But if you know that an English People are dumb. Yeah that's fair. That's Also could be argued that it's just funny that that's the only time that they like really acknowledge it but I won't talk about it anymore I thought that joke was funny. That's my opinion. So he signs of the ticket and then realizes he's allergic to hot pepper jelly. That's the sketch and Arctic. Don. Patterson tragedy. It's very he's very upset Don paget's very. Broken up about it and then the. Jets. Second wind and he was like I'm. Not. GonNa lose out to that I'M GONNA I'M GONNA come back at you one more time. And Then he just says. Like quietly and like in place a few times and I was kind of confused by that, and then all of a sudden transforms into a Ninja. Star starts flying around Bubalo attacking them. And then to counter that blue summons, all of his energy and some into the Bobo. Call ships. Crafts. Jed like another shift flyer and then like kitchen table and then a pig. And they all fly up in the sky get into formation and fuse together to form. Blow sitting at a table playing a video with the pig which. That made more sense than if it was going to be an actual like giant mech so I'll give them that works for me and. Don TASHA's the all this video game. Let me join it.

"BO Jamie mark David Van Dam and stop robbing making sense of it all having some fun this is mark Lee van Damme and robin JP Morgan maintained there's got Robbins we get through this is a country we're gonna get through this Pushin on man keep fighting and how are we going to get through this separated for each other but to gather yes yes yes well said and okay would you say it's safe to say of the three of us I'm trying to keep the most positive attitude yes yeah or okay by far not even close right at the same time we all have some fears that you know even as a person of faith words always fear not I get it okay the heroes of the Bible had feared to there was there it's okay to have it now and again and it's the fear of the unknown we don't know a lot of things and as it turns out the experts that we count on and it's not their fault I'm not saying it is but the truth is they don't know either I mean the Wall Street journal is reporting that experts believe one out of three tests given for corona virus or wrong the people that have it but it's giving them a negative but they actually do have a boy and then you hear the story about some healthy people under the age of fifty or under the age of forty for whatever reason the corona virus strikes them hard sometimes can kill them which makes the experts scratch their heads like what what is it about that person why were they affected him and another person isn't you know things as far as at risk people were elderly people but as doctor found she was on this morning on the today show and you know Savannah Guthrie asked you know why are some healthy people you know getting it and I'll just go to the answer well it no that's gonna require what we call natural history studies I mean I have been puzzled from the beginning I mean that show off the economy that said you know if you're older or if you have an underlying condition you get into trouble if you're younger than the likelihood of that is still very low which it is but it is very strange how one individual can get infected and as either mild or no symptoms and another individual could rapidly deteriorate with viral pneumonia and respiratory failure this something in mechanism whether it's genetic whether it's immune response the one thing I can say that we have to be humble I've been doing inspections diseases now for almost fifty years and I could tell you I don't fully understand exactly what the mechanism that is that we really need to figure it out because it could be completely devastating rapidly in one person an absolutely nothing in another person I like the Gander yeah I mean like you.

"I was on the football field and what he realized is what he felt was the rush adrenaline of being his best and he soon came to understand that if he just applied that same mentality to just about anything he could feel that same sense of purpose and today hey that's what he helps people do. He helps people to become their best bo went on to become a prolific actor and playwright. As matter of fact bo was the playwright and only actor in a one man show about his life called runt of the litter. Yes he plays himself every coach. He plays his brother. He plays his mother. He plays his father. It's one of the best place i've ever seen in my entire life. He took that play off broadway on on a fifty city national tour. He's been featured on countless stages around the world and today he's a speaker and a leadership coach. He's been on our stage at the marketing impact academy as well as smart success because bo trains people how to be successful successful in the world of athletics successful on the world of entrepreneurship business executives. He teaches people how to be the best and today bo is here share strategies with us from his new book. There's no plan b. for your game bowie so thank you so much for joining me here today on the shaheen show but she'll always always great to be with you. I'm excited. We'll spend some time together this fall and a few football games as well. I remember seeing you guys had a game last fall seabrook apply and then i'll see you this fall too so i'm excited. You know it really kind of lends itself to what we're gonna talk about today. Which is your new book and this thing that i believe you're really so good at and that is helping people be their best that term. The best has been an obsession of mine since i was a kid because that's the way my dad woke us up yeah every single morning glad you brought up your father author. Because that was one of the questions i have when i read the first chapter of your book and you start by sharing the story of your father and you just get a sense of who he is and i mean i could picture <hes> i could hear his voice but i wondered to myself how much we are able to reprogram our brains if we didn't have that kind of influence so you know you and i were fortunate enough to have parents who did tell us we were the best but what about that person send who is having to reprogram that because they had a parent who maybe didn't say like your the worst but they didn't get that atta boy is funny when you grow up. You think that everybody's growing up the same way like you don't know there's any you don't know people aren't being told that and so i thought every other kid must be uh being woken up like this too and so not until you get a little older than you enter the the world you go. Oh wow i guess people didn't wake up the same same way i did so that's been really what i've tried to do going forward now that i understand that because the most important thing wasn't that he was saying it. I think it wasn't that he was saying. I was the best which carried a lot of weight. It's what he saw in me that i couldn't see for myself <hes> mm or what he saw in my brother and my sisters that they just couldn't quite articulate or see for themselves and when somebody does that i. I always think that's a great coach. Great coach see something in you that you cannot see and then speaks it until you figure out to live into that what they see. Is that a prerequisite in other words if i have grown up with the opposite programming and i'm in my own head and i'm repeating these things that i know oh aren't useful aren't helpful and i don't believe in myself. Do i need somebody else to say. They see it in me in order for me to see it in me. Can they do that for myself. You know it's a great question chilean and one. I haven't really considered before been asked before but as you ask it. I'm gone on well yeah. You just have to do it for yourself..

"Listen to up first on the NPR one app or wherever you get your podcasts. When we paused Bo, you were talking about this digital depiction that these middle schoolers are putting out there that you kind of harvested from the wilds of the interwebs. To help write the script. And that's kind of what helps frame the movie. The movie is framed in part punctuated in part by these videos that the main character Kayla makes these how to videos that she records on her laptop and then uploads. Here's a clip of one of those videos that Kayla uploads Caleb Acuras another video. Okay. So the topic of today's video is putting yourself out there. Okay. So like what does that mean wear? Is there? Well, there can be anywhere that you wouldn't usually go, you know, maybe because it's like weird or scary or. Something like that clip from one of Kayla's videos in eighth grade. It's so telling and also kind of sad, Bo that you learn quickly in the movie that this girl is pining about things. She really does not does not understand, right. Yeah. Well, that's what I mean. That's what I responded to in the videos of these actual kids talking. I've always been interested in people expressing themselves in the internet that are not being seen. I mean, we tend to only talk about people in the internet that go viral that get attention. But you know, ninety nine point, nine percent of people expressing themselves in the internet are expressing themselves to no one or two, you know, a handful of people, and I think their expression is still valid and probably more interesting. So I would search, you know, things like middle school advice and sort it by upload date instead of relevancy. Because on YouTube, when you search that stuff, you're just the first fifty videos are all going to have a million hits and I'd. Find videos with three hits from kids that had ten subscribers talking about their life, and we'd watch them talk. You could see them in every moment. You would see them trying to sound like the people in videos that they'd watched who those people are already imitations of imitations imitations. He see them trying to sound like that failing to sound like that trying to close the distance between what they're sounding like, what they wanna sound like. You see them getting bored, you see them getting back. You see them beating themselves up. You see them adjusting all of this in a moment. And this performance was so much more alive than the typical teen voice, which is usually this perfectly articulated. Okay. I'm going to tell you how I went from becoming the Queen of that too. The king of whatever. And so I remember watching these videos thinking, if this were a performance in a movie would be incredible..
