A Look at the Suspects in the Christa Helm Murder

"Let's look at the suspects for the police. Sandy Smith, Chris agent, and the person whose house she was murdered in front of. Definitely in the Hollywood party scene, potentially had mob ties and definitely was a shady character. The next suspects a guy named Rudy mosel. A drug dealer who was roommates with Blair aronson, the keyboardist who worked on Christa's disco album. And so I was to say that crystal was storing large amounts of Coke from azela and during that time she stole some drugs from him and he found out and got a bit violent toward her. Another crazy thing Rudy sprag that he was the one who committed the murder. Now we all know that there are false confessions that happen. They happen pretty regularly in murder cases, but this is one that I would take a little seriously. He wasn't looked at deeply at the time of Christ as murder, but when the case was opened back up in the mid 2000s, cold cased investigators found that Rudy had been dead for years so there's nothing they could do with that. I think he's the general favorite of whoever killed Chris to helm. But with investigators unable to interview him, there was no direct evidence linking him to the death. So the case is still unsolved to this day. What I would do is I'd like to know what sandy Smith saw. And why did he lie to the police? What's also interesting about this case is investigative found tapes among her possessions and audio recordings of her sexual encounters. I love to hear those tapes. Another fascinating possible suspect is Tony sirico. Pauly walnuts himself. The roommate Stephanie said that he showed up at their apartment right after the party to check on Chris as well fair, but that ended up not happening. And what ended up happening was he went to their apartment to steal fur coats and personal items of Kristin's. So Stephanie have always believed that it was Tony who initially stole Christa's tape recordings from her room after the murder. Why he did that? I don't know.

Vote for New UK Prime Minister Goes to 4th Round

"Michael gove, who's the smartest member of the British Parliament, is out there pitching her. And he went on one of the Brit stations yesterday on LBC with Andrew marr and made this pitch about kimmi bad not cut number one. Michael goat. To be fair, she has Mormons through the experience and Tony Blair or David Cameron has when they became prime minister. And she's been in a runner party of course. Jeez. Oh, absolutely. And also, she's the same age as Rishi and she's been in government in three very different roles. All of which she's accomplished successfully. I know all of the candidates. I've either worked with them because they've been junior ministers and departments that I've been running all these supported me in previous leadership elections. Our new hesitation saying that of all of the people who worked with me in a department that I ran, cami was undoubtedly the outstanding minister. She has an intellectual grasp second to none. She has a capacity to communicate with confidence, but also with empathy. And also, she's brave. It's a rare junior minister who tells their Secretary of State where to get off because their secretary state is getting something wrong. Can we do that to me repeatedly? There were a number of occasions where I told her that I disagreed. She took it in very good part. But it's that confidence based on an understanding from first principles of what you want to achieve that you need in a

"Of us, especially over the last chunk of years, for a wide variety of reasons, we have unacknowledged trauma, whether it's big tea trauma or a little tea trauma that just happens a little bit every day. And then in body practice heading is such an important thing. So as you know, I think we're having this conversation in a really interesting moment in time for you. The last couple of years, there's been almost like what feels like a reimagining. I'm stepping into this next season of life in a very intentional way, making choices about what to say yes and no to not walking away from anything, but really revisiting. What is that deeper thread that keeps informing the way that I want to step into this work and this life? So you step forward on the contribution side as an educator as a historian. Doing the work differently, you build a public platform, you now have a tremendous following, create all of these amazing educational things from books to smarter and seconds, all these wonderful videos and imagery across social. When you think about, okay, so how am I going to build this next thing out? What I'm curious about is underneath that. I mean, you've got all of these specific things. The topics, the insights that you have, the intentionality behind it is fantastic. And I feel like there are so many people me including raising my hand. I'm learning so much from what you're putting into the world. My curiosity is this. When you're now in this mode of deciding, how do I want to step into the way that I'm creating my life, my work from this moment forward, what's important to you about that? Well, first, thank you so much for the affirmations. I really appreciate that. I think what's important to me, I have this framework that I created in 2021 about my road map of priorities. And it's like, is it ethical? Does it get me closer to my goals? Is it good for community? Is it good for myself and does it make sense? And if it doesn't satisfy those criteria and the answer isn't always like yes or no, like sometimes it's like is it ethical is definitely like the yes or no point? But beyond that, is it purposeful? Not everything's purposeful. Sometimes I want to go see a screening of the movie jackass because I think it's hilarious when people consensually decide to do pranks and ridiculous stuff. And just kind of have a laugh. I think that's very important as well. Just like I was talking to my mom the other day, there's a creator online, the nutrition T and she's taught me that not every food you eat has to be nutritious. And so my mom was like, Blair, you don't need donuts and I was like, well, nobody needs donuts. The donuts are delicious. It's like sometimes we have to have a donut accident in our life. I try to make sure that I don't just say yes to every opportunity. One thing that has become very large concern of mine is quote unquote selling out. And the way that I define that isn't some folks have a very interesting threshold. If you're getting money for your labor, you're selling out and it's like incorrect. That's called labor, and you should be compensated. But what I consider selling out to be is saying yes to something because of compensation, which is completely out of line with my principles. And so how do I avoid that fear of selling out? I make sure that I'm very diligent about what I do say yes to. And so I think that's what I look at in general. I try to figure out am I the best messenger for this? Can I include other people in this? Can I acknowledge and sight and pay other people in this? I think that I recently I just had a meeting today where it looks like I will be more involved in developing educational materials in other in new ways. And I think that right now I'm very detached from the outcome, which is one of my mom's favorite catch phrases is detached from the outcome. Because I feel like I'm walking in my enoughness in my abundance. I feel very like I'm not chasing anything. If I get more followers amazing, if not, that's also amazing. There's plenty of folks that are in my classroom already beautiful. I couldn't have said that always, you know? Feeling like I was chasing the next thing instead of just being happy with what I have. I feel like I'm very happy with what I have. And if I'm deciding to add more things on, I get to be more mindful about them because I'm not exhausted and stressed and trying to figure out what works, or I'm able to figure out what works instead of just being like, oh, yes, another branch to hold on to, which is the desperation that so many of us are put into. And so in this moment, I just feel like, is it something I'm going to be proud of in ten years? That's one of the things I ask myself. Is it something that I would be embarrassed to discuss with my mom? I also have a friend and colleague, doctor Shea kill McLean. And sometimes I'll just text doctor Shea to be like, hey, is this good or bad? Because sometimes my own ego gets ahead of myself, I got invited to be on this reality TV show. And the premise, I don't think I can talk about it because of NDAs, but I texted doctor Shay to ask what he thought about it. And he, before I could even ask the rest of the question, he was like, no, and I was like, great. Because sometimes you need to be realigned with what makes sense for you and having a support system that will shut you down when you're deviating from that is healthy or just discuss it with you and your deviating. But I really just try to be proud of the things that I do. And then every day, if I have done harm in the moment, I try to acknowledge it before I go to sleep, because there's that saying, don't go to sleep mad. I feel like go to sleep with whatever emotions you have, but don't go to sleep guilty. You don't want to feel guilty for something you could have righted. And then it also makes you be mindful and the actions you take. Should I do this? Should I not? And also just giving myself grace that I will say yes to something that will not be what I imagined it to be, but let me make sure it's not because I didn't do my due diligence. It has to be some variable that I couldn't have accounted for. And then trying to do that. It's a process. It requires a lot of diligence, a lot of intention, but I really feel like it's a great way to live. Because we are only really accountable for our own actions and when we really consider that and drill down to it, I feel like I've become a kinder person. I feel like I've become far less reactionary than I previously been. And I'm so I'm not stressed. Even during like right now I'm stressing out somewhat trying to get everything in order before I leave the country for three weeks. But I'm not stressed in the same frantic and burnt out way that I might have been previously. Yeah. That makes a lot of sense. And it feels like a good place for us to come full circle in our conversation as well. So sitting in this container of good life project, if I offer up the phrase to live a good life, what comes up? Oh, I didn't know. There's so many things to live a good life is to treat every passing interaction with every sentient being you encounter as a gift and an opportunity and something of.

"It was different than where you came from, then what you were brought up around. But it seems like it spoke to you in a way where at that particular moment in time, it brought you back to spirituality in a way that really resonated. It was like a DNA level thing that said, okay, so this is and also this is what I need at this particular moment. Because it sounds like you were, there were so much outflow in your life, it was just constantly giving giving showing up showing up, sheltering, sheltering, protecting, protecting, and also so often people just end up utterly burned out and physically and mentally ill. When you reach that point where you latch onto something, whether it's spiritual, whether it's relational, whether it's all of the above and for you, Islam was a part of that coming back home to yourself in those small way. And also coming back to a place of calm and love and compassion as a new way of almost like looking forward at. Okay, so I still believe what I believe. And I still want to affect change, but I'm differently informed and maybe I need to do it differently as I think about how I'm going to bring myself forward. Definitely, I think that the biggest confusion was folks feeling like I had completely changed. My parents, I now understand, were my dad was cool. He's a very chill man. He's like, I understand a lot of my friends converted to Islam in the 70s, you know? And so that was his point of reference. My mother, on the other hand, was like, Blair, you've converted to a completely different religion that we don't really have a connection to, and you are dating somebody named akeem, like what is happening. She was very alarmed, and I understand that today, and it took her a little bit of time to see the importance of it for me outside of a lot of islamophobic biases that many of us are fed and internalized. And so it was a growth time for sure. But it was also a little bit of rebellion. I think my parents there so chill and a furby and sex positive and body positive and all the things like when I got tattoos, my mom was like, actually, my first tattoo I got on a Hollywood Boulevard and it was really bad. And my mom was like, that's really bad. And so she introduced me to one of her friends who was a tattoo artist to fix it. And then I got my second tattoo, and then I got another tattoo in Chile, and my parents were just like, cool, whatever. When I wanted my belly button here, so my mom was like, awesome. Let's get matching ones, and then she decided not to, 'cause she chickened out. But I got mine. And so for the moment for my parents to be like, wow, wow wow, slow down soldier. To be when I kind of shifted the way that I was looking at spirituality joining and organized religion. For that to be the thing. That was an interesting moment. I understand where it came from now, but I was just like, you're raining on my Muslim parade. Like, what the heck? But now I understand that they saw that I was in a vulnerable place. They were concerned that I was vulnerable to that's the really the time period where colts are really dangerous for people is when you're feeling a sense of fear and I was in such a nurturing space and once I was able to explain that to my mom in particular that whenever I had a question about spirituality at this mosque, it was like, I'm not going to answer that for you, but I'll give you a place to look and then we can discuss. It wasn't this is the savior and this is how you save yourself. It was like, why don't you understand how your worldview collaborates with this spirituality, this religion, and then figure out what makes sense for you. So it was very healthy, but of course my mom didn't see that whole process. I kind of kept it from her and then all of a sudden, I'm like, oh, surprise. And so that was definitely a long process. But it's so intimately connected. I think what drew me to the mosque in particular was seeing the acts of service being done during Ramadan, seeing the emphasis on different discussions. Of course, I did have a bias that the grass was going to be greener in the different Abrahamic religion. I was like, there's no racism in Islam. There's no sexism. There's nothing. There is an everything because humans are very brilliant at taking Star Trek, for example, and churning it islamophobic or taking Star Wars and making it sexist. We're very good at those things. We can also do beautiful things. And so it took me some maturity to let go of defensiveness around my belief system and then open up about critically thinking about the things that I do cherish and agree with and the things that I want to have theological debate over and just fundamentally remember that I'm not a different person. I think when I first converted, I was like, I don't do this anymore. I don't do that anymore. I'm completely different now instead of figuring out that way to walk into a new space and bring myself into it as well. But I think it's something a lot of folks struggle with. I see college students struggle with it where they completely absorb the identity of the school and kind of have a hard time relating to their folks back home. So it's that process of newness. But I really just feel so settled now. I think it also helped to calm the chaos of my early 20s. Which was very needed. Good luck project is supported by a Monday dot com. So behind the scenes here at good life headquarters. We've actually got a ton of fairly complex overlapping projects rolling in at any given time and our team is distributed.

The Clintons Russia Entanglement

"Thanks, Blair. My guest is the president of judicial watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption. He's the president, his name is Tom Fenton, the article he had written called the Clinton's Russia Ukraine grift. Tom, let's go over some of the specifics. You just now mentioned the $500,000 check for one speech from the Russian investment firm, renaissance capital. What did renaissance capital get for their $500,000 check for one speech? Well, some would argue they helped further secure the approval of the Obama administration's. The approval of the Obama administration for Russia related investments and uranium one. Other uranium one entities connected entities, according to The New York Times, gave a $145 million to the Clinton cash machine and I tell you, that's where the money needs to be followed in terms of Russia connections to try to influence public policy here in the United States. And the fact that the Justice Department hasn't done much with it at all to me is a scandal beyond words.

"The pride passion and pageantry of college football lives here. This is the Paul finebaum show hour three podcast. We got to know our next guest a couple of years ago and we've had a fantastic relationship getting to know him better and sadly he is leaving the sport of college basketball league as a head coach we introduced Gary Blair before the big game. Tonight coach, it's good to see you and I know that you have mixed emotions. You're probably tired of all the farewell jokes, aren't you? How are you? Well, yes and no, is Andy landers told me the other day if he knew I was going to get all those gifts, he wouldn't retire after the season. He would have done it just like I'm doing. But poor Andy, he's counting his cows out there on the ranch, but hey, it's been a blessing. I'll reflection time. We'll have a lot of old Friends, former players, aggies that are grateful and but at the same time continue to steal, try to compete at the highest level. And that's been the hardest part. And I'm sure there are so many mixed emotions, coaches, because I would think your whole career goes through your eyes every time you play it in an arena for the final time and you see someone, you haven't seen. But how are you able to compartmentalize? Because remember, you're playing the number one team in the country tonight. You're playing the best that everyone has, how have you dealt with that? And how difficult has it been? Well, we've lost some games, perhaps we shouldn't have lost, but we're prepared and we're resilient as a team and we're trying to get ready for South Carolina. All the fanfare that goes with it, the gifts, the name and of the court and all of that type of stuff. I've got to put it aside to be able to honor the game. This was supposed to be before the season, the top two teams in the SEC, South Carolina has lived up to a nationally, we have not, we had a great start to the season, and then we just hadn't played as well. No one certain thing, no injuries, no COVID. It's just we haven't played as well. And it's hard, Paul, it's too much of the me moment right now instead of the we moment for my basketball team. The honoring is great, but I want us to be we again. Well, coach, that's that falls on you, of course, to figure out a way to get the most out of your players, but you have done that before, but it makes me a little guilty to ask you about the naming of the court now, but I will, since I don't play for you, regardless of all that you've said. And I understand the importance of playing well. But it still has to mean a great deal to you, does it not to see what is about to happen? It's huge. The only two courts that are presently named that people playing on is the pat summit in the KL, two mentors myself and two colleagues that we the three of us were together in the 98 final four when I was coaching at Arkansas. And that was pat's best team ever. And Kay and I were the two Cinderella's that were just happy to be there, but what those two people have meant to the game, I'm just honored to be in the same breath as those two right there. And sometimes you feel guilty because you want it to be about us and the we and the aggies are we and all that type of stuff. And they keep showering me with gifts, but we're walking away with the losses that we've got to play better. And that resonates so much and it's not that I want to win for me are the court name and I want to win for we because our fans have been so good. The national audience has been so good. We are a good basketball team that just hadn't played well. But we're going to try to correct that tonight. I bet you are. And we will be watching here in about three and a half hours. Coach, I know that you have the tournament next week and hopefully whatever you can cobble together after that. But how much time, if any, have you spent on what happens on the day after? The day after I've got a lot of relatives in. I've got my daughter and her family had to take a private plane today because she couldn't get out of pay bill due to ice. I've got all my Dallas people, my wife's got all our Houston people in. And I think they're waiting for my American Express card or my refrigerator or something, but I'll be glad I'll be glad to share it. I'd love to share it with some of your listeners out there because I'm an avid follower of your show listening to Jim and all the people that you've had. I love what you do, Paul, and I love how you handle people. And it's a gift that you have, but it starts with the word patience. But what I will do tomorrow, we will get ready for Georgia. We're playing at Georgia in our last game and probably the two of the three best defensive clubs in the country I'm facing in South Carolina and Georgia. So my work is cut out. I can not worry about the SEC tournament. I can not worry that most likely will be playing on a Wednesday for the first time in my life. But we'll take every game like it's a Super Bowl. And that's what we want to do. We want to live up to what we still can be this year. When you're playing at home, you're not the underdog. We're not going in and I'm not going to do any David and Goliath stories or anything like that. I'm going to go in and we're going to just say, let's be the best that we can do. Best that we can be, like, just gave me that two years ago in the summer of Colorado Springs. I ran into him for the first time and I said, Mike, how do you stay relevant? It certainly for. I was 75 at the time. And he looked at me straight in the eyes like he was looking at one of his players and he says, Gary, they're going to get the best of me and they're going to get the best of you. And that's when I try to give every day. And some days I fall short. But I'm going to try to give it. I'm going to try to go so hard to give my kids the confidence that we can play at the highest level. But right now tonight, it's an honor to play South Carolina like it was an honor last year to host South Carolina in the last game before the conference tournament where we won and we won this CC championship..

In a 2005 blog post, titled postmark America read wrote a post about Tony Blair's son, visiting bathhouses in the U.S., while in turning for David dreyer, the former California House member. And the post also referred to former lawmaker Barney Frank, the first openly gay member of the House. As a quote absolute bollocks poacher, close quote.

When it became extremely clear that their efforts to end things peacefully had failed. Brigadier general ban. Holt sent in the troops from fort. Thomas kentucky the first of these troops arrived on september first and mostly did reconnaissance work infantry started arriving in logan mingo counties on september third and the miners who were not really keen on idea of fighting against the actual army started to surrender although some of them continued fighting into the fourth of september. An even though the miners ultimately surrendered many. Really look at this as a moral victory It was the federal troops and not the mind companies that they'd surrendered for about a thousand miners out of the estimated. Ten thousand who fought officially surrendered. They were supposed to turn in their weapons but the miners only turned in about four hundred guns. The rest of the weapons were dropped or hidden or smuggled back to the minors homes. The death toll of the battle of blue mountain was somewhere between thirty and fifty which is surprising. Considering how many men fought and what kinds of weapons had been employed. This seems to have been because a lot of the fighting happened through. Brush without a clear line of sight on. Either party's part. The miners who surrendered were allowed to go home and some of them were transported there by train. The idea was that the leaders of this resistance were the ones who are going to be held responsible. All in all there were one thousand two hundred seventeen indictments. That came down from a grand jury. As a result of the battle. Three hundred and twenty-five of these indictments for murder in twenty four were for treason. Most of these eventually led to acquittals or they were thrown out or they just never came to trial but because of the battle and the surrender the union itself especially its presence in southern west. Virginia was almost destroyed. Membership in southern west. Virginia dropped just precipitously and it took almost a decade for the un w to regroup and start advocating for better working conditions again in two thousand eight. The site of the battle was nominated to be placed on the national register of historic places before a property can be listed on the register. Owners of the property have the chance to object to its being listed the back and forth that went on about whether the blair mountains site should be listed was pretty long originally. There were sixty six owners who were identified as owning land. That was part of the site but that number roses high as sixty eight and dropped as low as fifty seven over the back and forth. The number of objections to the site being listed on the register also changed a lot based on. He was doing the environmental groups or coal companies. Consequently the battlefield was briefly placed on the national register of historical places and then it was removed from the register after only a few months several conservation groups including the sierra club sued the us department of the interior over the battlefields. Delisting the us district court for the district of columbia upheld the decision twenty twelve so the battlefield is not currently on the register. Environmental groups are really hoping that having it listed on the register of historic places while that would not give it complete protection from an environmental standpoint. It would offer some protection. A one of the reasons that people are so interested in. This is because of mountaintop removal mining. There's an ongoing struggle between people who really want to preserve the mountain and people who want to mine. It and in. June of twenty eleven environmentalists and historians recreated the one thousand nine hundred twenty one march to blair as part of a big protest and rally for preservation efforts on the other hand people who supported the coal industry basically lined the route of the march with their own counter protests. The battle in the miners who originally fought it have been brought up as a symbol of the fight to preserve the mountain or to stop mountaintop removal mining entirely opponents point out that this is really an appropriation. They weren't fighting for the mountain at all. They were fighting for safer jobs with fair. Pay in non-exploitative business practices as well as the right to unionize. Coal continues to be a major industry in west virginia but new mining techniques and new methods mean that there were jobs within the industry so while overall the coal industry pays pretty well now There are far fewer jobs available so the people mining coal are making a much better living today than they were in. Nineteen twenty one but unemployment is a huge issue in the regions of west virginia. Where the main industry has always been coal mining and sort of as a coda note on the word redneck about sixty percent of the people who requested this episode. Because we've had quite a number of requests have mentioned in their requests at the battle of blair mountain was where the word redneck originated To mean a white rural person that you believed to be poorer and more ignorant than you are First of all redneck is actually considered a slur. It is no more acceptable than any derogatory word for people from other regions that people might use second of all. The word redneck actually appeared in print for the first time in eighteen thirty. According according to the oxford english dictionary and newport royal reported it as a name bestowed on presbyterians and at bill she was writing about fayetteville north carolina. It's not totally clear. How the word redneck morphed from that use into today's sort of hillbilly ask flavor but it was used as a synonym for hey seed by eighteen ninety one and was also used to mean an uncouth countrymen by nineteen thirteen so it was definitely established in the vernacular with the meaning pretty much like it means the day before the events in nineteen twenty one at blair mountain so while the miners were wearing red bandannas and they probably were called rednecks because they had red red bandannas on that uses not where the word redneck came from. The more. you know more you know yeah did drives me kind of crazy when people use that word because it's it's a very derogatory term. I know that there are many people who use the word with pride as there are many people who use many slurs to talk about themselves with pride but i cannot think of any time that i have used one per are. I've heard one person say that word about another person without casting he's disparaging judgment on them usually does come with a healthy dose of superiority.

What the Left Doesn't Want You to Know About Jan 6

"On the national level. This is always disconcerting. It doesn't help when we have weasley. Republicans who support massive amounts of increase spending. If you've been following the infrastructure. Bill which i don't know how many republicans signed on for that. It's outrageous they don't get the idea about limited government. Oh and they say well sign on because this will prevent the bigger bill yet to come. I mean that's not always censure therefore and our children grandchildren will have to pay for that or worse turncoat. Republicans like liz. Cheney and adam kinser you wonder if they do this for the publicity right like an unknown congressman but now they joined. The pelosi corrupted commission meant to destroy our movement right the commission on one six. Or whatever was do you believe are still people think that the officer was hit by a firings extinguisher. That's feel if you tell lie. Often enough people start to believe it's it's unbelievable and or don't know that some police officers wave them in or fbi collaborators. Tucker's done a good job on. This may have urged the crowd on or that trump supporter ashley. Babb was killed by an officer who still remains anonymous. Why was that true where that some of these protesters still sit in jail. Even in solitary confinement. Can you imagine that being a bunch. I'm not condoning it in any way. They didn't come in with guns. Blair an or palms or anything like that while. The american people still can't see thousands of hours of videotape. Showing really happen. That is what this commission should be investigating but they won't right and look carthy. But i'm not in love with mccarthy appointed Jim jordan. I forget the other guy's name and of course nancy pelosi them on. Because you know what the truth come out what you have and liz cheney. Oh there's a piece of work. Liz cheney i mean condemning trump from the beginning South have no use for these people. They let their hatred get in the way of. What's best for this country.

Working Toward a More Inclusive Music Industry

"One of the big stories in the music industry right now has been the response to hip hop star two babies homophobic comments, which he made during a festival in Miami late last month. As NPR's Elizabeth Blair reports, the fallout was swift as multiple festivals canceled his shows. With his millions of followers on social media. The baby has a powerful platform. He's one BT awards and been nominated for Grammys. I'm one of the greatest ain't no debate. No, no, I'm still levitated medicated. Ironic I gave him love and they and the painting on me. That's the baby on a Dua Lipa song that's in the top 10 of the Billboard's hot 100 chart. During his concert at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami, he told the audience to put your cell phone light up. If you didn't show up with HIV AIDS, you didn't show up today with HIV AIDS and get up there and essentially transmitted disease making died. 23 weeks put his cell phone right now. The backlash was immediate. Dua Lipa distanced herself from the baby Lollapalooza removed him from the lineup. Then more festivals canceled two shows Elton John and Madonna railed against the misinformation in his comments about HIV. I think there's a new moment. There's definitely a new moment. The baby is a big star and Brown University professor Tricia Rose says The cost to his career is significant. At the same time, she says, the music industry has long tolerated and profited from artists like the baby. There's many, many artists who are promoted by the industry, who are celebrated by the industry because of their quote unquote edgy, extreme behavior. And you know that is a longstanding pattern that has not abated in any way And then you know when they step out of line about when and how they actually live into that identity. Then there's all this sort of, you know we're all about peace, love and

"blair" Discussed on Mindy Diamond on Independence: A Podcast for Financial Advisors Considering Change

"What do you think are the real similarities or differences between say the others that fall into the same category and william blair and one of the things that i'll say is i know that in terms of the deals that transition packages that william blair is offering. They are less in terms of cash upfront. So how do you make up for that than those others whereas it similar whereas different. You're that's a good question. So if i take that with call backwards so let's start with. Let's start with the idea of the deal so we are likely to lose nine out of ten times. Ten out of ten times downed to the transition packages reference. We write a regional sized the only fair deal cash very simplistic but it certainly never gonna rival. The top deals that you see on the streets. So then they answered questions where that premium finds itself so our premium is in everything following that singular. Talk a little bit about culture access to deep resources. If you just look at the proof point of successful environment success of our advisers you see it in front of us so give example miser row and we help them grow through the partnership with our investment bank infidelity who doesn't work force as well you find this collective success we've recruits that. As an example there was the six hundred fifty thousand dollar advisors now a five-million-dollar advisor our firm seven years later million dollar crew doing three million and making partner a two million dollar now doing four million three years later so our economics not only in the simplified cash grid or compensation guide mindy. Don't tell anybody is only four pages long ricky various implicit transparent in all cash. Based what if you have the opportunity to make partner of this wonderful organization. They're substantial economics opportunity. There is well again in addition to just collect them success in the work that we all do together. And i know that's easy to say on a podcast tough to prove. But we're only as good as our next recruit only as good as the last advisor decided to stay today. In his reason they're staying and there's a reason that are hurt. Recruits are success. That they're having with us that we're not going to be perfect everybody if it's the transition but we're going to be perfect for everybody that wants to have a successful career in be well compensated for past the initial transition. Yeah one of the things. I say to people. All the time is when you're in evaluating opportunity for every dollar. That opportunity is below the competition. That's how much harder that firm has to work to prove they're that much better in their offering premium elsewhere. And so i think what you're saying is we're not the top deal where okay with not being the top deal. But it's the partnership culture. It's the opportunity the growth opportunity and who we are as a firm and our eighty seven year old history that make up what we lack in terms of transition dollars would say. That's absolutely thank you for saying that back in the much more beautiful way than i said it but i'd i'd also added that you also lose some of the stresses that some of the other competitors may have and so while the transition happens if you look at some of those we compete against their own by e firms or they're highly leveraged or every dollar revenue that they have had to come from recruited. When you look at being a stable profitable growing nine decade old long business we have called greater forces of setting a position and others just can't buy..

"And blair mountain is a dagger in the heart of that stereotypical character of my home. Blair mountain is the site of america's largest labor uprising. Ever it took place in west. Virginia one hundred years ago this august but for a long time the story really buried deep beneath the mountains of time. So this time on side door. We're mining nugget of history.

Potential savings will vary discounts vary and are not available in all states and situations. The battle of blair mountain is about power. The kind of keeps your light bulb on in your kitchen. And the kind that exists between a worker and a boss and in nineteen twenty. The men who owned coal companies had all the power. These companies are able to wield greater in greater olitical and economic force on notable levels on county levels on state levels and on federal loves. This is smithsonian curator. Tony perry from the national museum of american history in the early twentieth century. America was industrializing. Fast there are a lot. Fewer people plowing the fields and a lot more melting steel laying train tracks and canning food. You have industrialization really ramping up in america and where industrialization in many ways is being fueled by coal literally and figuratively steel roads food production. All that stopped. If cole wasn't being pulled out of the mountains in pennsylvania and west virginia so coal companies needed people to swing pickaxes and load train cars. Lots of people. Nearly two percent of the american population worked in coal mines at the time. That's nearly seven million americans. Today more than the entire population of most states west virginia coal companies got real good at recruiting workers from across america dangling the promise of good pay and a middle class lifestyle they specifically targeted black americans who were migrating away from oppressive laws and farming systems dominating. The south compared to being a sharecropper or a small farmer in virginia a black miners. Earning potential was actually quite high in west. Virginia this is catherine more. She's a writer and founding member of the west virginia. Mine wars museum. They were pretty much assured of getting a job that could make the same wages as whites which was untrue in nearly every other occupation in the united states at that time the coal companies also promised workers a little place to call home company housing which was a pretty sweet deal for european immigrants who just land in the us with no place to go. This is chuck keeney again. Literally they were at had recruiters at ellis island. The sydney wanna job we can give you a job and we can give you a house and and of course immigrants. That will wow a job as early as the land of opportunity. This is great and they stick them on a train and then they found themselves in logan county west virginia coal mining was a pretty decent paying job but it was also extremely dangerous. You were thousands of feet underground in dark cramped tunnel deadly gases could seep through the rocks suffocating. You or they could explode and water could rip through the mind at any second or runaway cart loaded with coal could crush you or rip your arm off or the ceiling my collapse so is incredibly dangerous work. Peter leopold is a curator emeritus at the smithsonian's national museum of american history. We actually have a prosthesis artificial Leg that was made by a minor and used after that minor lost a leg in an accident during world war one and american soldier had a higher likelihood of survival then a west virginia coal miner. That is nuts. Minors put up with the risk to keep a roof over their families heads. But in one thousand nine hundred twenty. They started to see their paychecks getting a little bit leaner. There's a recession going on. It's tough times. And even more importantly the miners see that they're sliding down. They see a time that things might be worse for their children not better for their their children and that if they don't say it outright they certainly not feel americans across the country were struggling to pay bills and it was getting harder by the day. A lot of people blamed immigrants or other minority groups for their struggles. So you have a lot of racial hostility going on a lot of xenophobia. Going on enormous labor unrest and you had an enormous wealth gap between the rich and the poor in fact. Twenty twenty one. We're looking at the largest wealth gap between the rich and force since nineteen twenty one. It's not altogether a completely different world than what we see today. So we don't have to work that hard to imagine what life was like you don't have to with the economy slowing down. There was also less demand for coal so coal companies were constantly one upping each other to stay competitive. One company would pay workers less to cut costs then. They all paid less then. A company would cut costs in another place like safety inspections and then they would all cut safety inspections and so on and so forth in a race to the bottom. This becomes one of the major sticking points that accounts for a lot of attention and the emerging conflicts because the effort to keep labor costs down. You also have in these company. Towns poor housing poor healthcare facilities poor sanitation access to water the call. These company towns is being a little generous with the word town minds were usually tucked away deep in the mountains and besides the mind. There really wasn't much else. they're not roads. The only way in or out was on the train so the coal company provided housing schools hospital of sorts. Maybe a store because there weren't any so as peter leopold says a coal company didn't just control every aspect of a miner's life.

"Blair Aronson. Today we have a guest, a team member of Blair's. His name is Ali Hashim Ian. He's a certified financial planner, chartered financial consultant. Masters in finance, special expertise and taxes and the author of the bestselling book Overtaxed. So If you couldn't tell, we're going to be talking about taxes today. At this time. I want to bring on our host Blair errands and Blair. Nice to be accurate, Phil. Nice to be here. The only thing you didn't mention is, uh, not only is ah, we a the tax ninja, Very dear friend, but that book I watched it it it It did become a bestseller in 24 hours, which was quite impressive. So let's get to it, my friend just to introduce the listeners. I've had the pleasure of working alongside with Ali for the West 5.5 going on six years we have done many, many joint case work together. But I invited him on the show today because I see the passion and the response People are calling in gone. We want to know more about taxes, because where does America loved to save and that tax later bucket? Everybody sign that net that line many years ago tax deferral tax deferral, but I've always perplexed and actually a little bit. Dumbfounded. How come nobody asked the question before I commit to accumulating a few million dollars, possibly in this deferral world? Wouldn't it be nice to know? Like what? I'm deferring it to? It sort of. Seems to me like you're playing a poker hand with a million dollars only. You agreed. You're not going to look at the cards so I wanted Ali to come on. Are we give the listeners some insight really where you think taxes could be headed? In the next 5 10 years, please. Well, you know, I get this question a lot, and I think there's almost no question that taxes have to be higher in the future and you look back over history. In 1944, For example, our national debt was at $200 billion, and I know 200 billion sounds like a lot of money. But that's not even a quarter of $1 trillion And in that same year, 1944 the top federal income tax bracket here in the United States of America was 94%. So, for all the listeners really think about what that means. That means for the top earners in our country, the last dollars they would earn they'd pay 94 cents of each dollar back to the U. S government. And that's before their state taxes were even applied to it yet so you fast forward to today over $20 trillion in debt, and our top tax bracket is 37%. Something's got to give here, and I don't care if you're a Republican or Democrat or anything in between. It really doesn't make a difference. And you don't have to be a tax expert or a math genius like myself for Blair to see the writing on the wall, never in history have we had as large of a gap between national debt and top tax rates as we do today, and so something's gonna give here. An interesting factor. I always thought when our former president being Ronald Reagan was still a movie star, he would actually only make two movies a year because he was paid $100,000 a movie. So do the math. After two movies. Bingo. He was working for free. Let's share some information, are we About this puzzling concept of to convert or not to convert or how can I get some money into that that we've been talking about well for eight years now into that tax, Never bucket. Everybody's got the tax later. Bucket busting at the seams share some thoughts on like I say on that conversion, mindset or also what other options are in the tax, Never bucket. Yeah, And you know, it's funny. Most people are pretty familiar with all their options in terms of tax deferred accounts or taxable accounts. But when it comes to those tax free or those never, tax accounts like Blair was saying many people don't know all their options and don't know all the different strategies. So one of the most common ones is that Roth conversion and as you, said Blair, a lot of People are asking the question. Do I convert or do I not convert? I don't think that's the question. The question should be. How much do I convert every year? Right? Some of us maybe. Should only be converting 15,000 because we can't pump up into a new tax bracket. But some of us have a lot more room in our tax brackets, and you have to remember. Even at the 22 or 24% tax bracket, you could be converting hundreds of thousands of dollars and still stay within those tax bracket. So in my opinion, paying less than 30%, knowing what you're going to pay is probably a better situation than deferring kicking the can down the road and not knowing what I'm going to pay where it could be easily double or triple and I see this all the time. You know, you ask Listeners the question How many of you think taxes are going to be higher in the future? My guess is all of you listening in right now probably are nodding your head. Yes, I think taxes will be higher in the future. But I'd like to ask all of you another question. And you don't have to be honest with me. But try and be honest with yourselves. How many of you listening to this show today have made a significant change in your portfolios to tax free or tax advantage investments. My guess is very few of you. Even though you know taxes are going to be higher in the future. You've done nothing about it today, so Get your head out of the sand. This is one of the best times in history for you to look at your tax strategies. We are at an artificially low tax rate currently, and we know by 2026. The current tax laws will sunset, if not earlier, So right now is the time Don't procrastinate any longer Take advantage of what's in front of you right now. You know, it's such a valid point. I'm always amazed and film and I have spoken about this on several different shows. Is that people really are so indoctrinated into that tax deferral world that when I asked Phil, I think it was two or three weeks ago. I said, Phil, if you had a $10,000 IRA and you were in a 30% bracket if we grow the money at 5% in 10 years, and you're in the 30% tax bracket, or our other option is to pay the taxes today. Only have $7000 to invest in that Roth Also learning 5%. Which account do you think has more money and at the end of 10 years, and most people, they go. Oh, I think that deferral because, um, um, compounding, I'm not paying tax. I'll deal with the taxes down the road. Everybody says Keep kicking the can down the road is surely the best strategy until I've shown the math that you end up in exactly the same spot. If taxes don't change, So why would anybody not just want tax insurance? Unless you really trust the I r s not to ding you and raise taxes. That's the decision agreed, agreed, And I think you know it's it's about diversification. You know, I learned this at a young age. That it's just as important for us to diversify our tax classifications as it is for us to diversify our investment allocations. After all, the money that you save in taxes That's a real dollar that hits your pocket. Every single year. There are only six tax free strategies available in the U. S. That's the subject of my book, Overtaxed and like the Blair mentioned that book became a bestseller in less than 24 hours. I like to think it became a bestseller that quickly because as a little picture of me on the book, but that's not the reason. The reason is. People want to learn about how they can grow their money tax free, and there's only six ways to do it if you haven't looked at all six I'd strongly urge you to give us a call, because that's exactly what we do for our clients every single day. I think that's actually a great place to start our next segment, So we unfortunately have to go to a break. But do you have a tax specialist that can help you address your taxes?.

The finger to about technology and laptops and refurbishing all kinds of computer so blair technologies is in kurt reynolds specifically the cfo of blair technologies are and we appreciate you being here For on here on the northern kentucky spotlight yet. Thanks for having me. I'm excited to get the spread. The word out about us and let people know a little bit more about what we do. Let's start right there. We know where you are. Because we all remember the old johnny's toys in latonya. We were just talking. I drive by all the time. The castle is still there. But what's inside is a little bit different so explain. What blair does yes. Castle still here and fully functioning. We still can send the keys al First birthday club to come. Get your poisons and stuff but the inside is a lot different so no longer is filled with toys. It's now filled with computers in in different electron ix with that Blair technology so we are a computer refurbishing In that is you know when you when you hear refurbishing computers. You might bank of a used computer and and it scratched in an doesn't look great and it's just a you know a cheaper version new but that's not really what it is at all It's a full manufacturing facility down here and in it's actually called renewed computers now so When you hear renewed it doesn't have the bit operations of of a used so when when we sell it. It's only tested Fully cleaned it. Look brand new out of a professionally atkins boss and in if you didn't know it was a used computer. Knew it and you wouldn't have any idea the quiz it looks brain you know and i know we had just been talking about the fact that you know with kids and students of all ages going online for learning this year and really into next semester. A lot of them a lot of parents grandparents are kind of scrambling for computers. That do basically just what they need to do. And there are a little afraid of that. Refurbishing refurbishment word. So why should someone looked toward a renewed computer as opposed to granny new one that we get that question a lot and for the computers that were selling versus new The people who are going to use them at Or for their office or something Our computer was the exact same thing that the the new computer do. For instance every computer in our building that used Including the one right. Now that i'm line is one of our renewed computers so you wouldn't tell the difference Unless you're doing something you know high power that you need the top of the line computer which must be were not Our computer will will work perfectly fine and you'll never notice the difference so the students can use You know all the google tools that they need you can use excel powerpoint In all of that and get it at a much better price for a lot of the concern about getting a renewed or refurbish computer. Is that if you're buying it from a big box store. There's no one to call and say. Hey this doesn't work that may be the beauty of buying from from somebody like you. Yeah we've got a customer service staff that can call In their they're answering the phone all the time and if it's even a local person you can come right into the tech castle store and they'll help you They can fix it. Service things Answer the questions. The people that work into the fans they love computers. It's not just a job. They like to to work on it and things in their spare time to so so they're very helpful may get caused from outweigh turning on to do anything so we can help. In any way you'll get someone on spare your locally and i think it's interesting You guys are the number. One microsoft authorized refurbish or in the world. Right there in livonia. that's correct Were very proud of the to We we got that designation this year. so for a company that started alley in someone's basement In blair started in his basement thousand by and we've grown To this this big company Last year we became the largest microsoft partner in the usa and this year we Jumped in in now their biggest partner in world So in the refurbishing peace. you know. there's no one larger than us out there so if obviously we could walk in there To the old johnny choice. Tech castle there in latonya. What's the process like. I mean if if people aren't really sure like i don't know what i need. I use my computer for these five things. Can you help along with to figure out what we need absolutely Depending on what you're looking for we have a solution for you and even in the store We get that question what you come in. You know people know they need or want a computer. They don't know they might not know the ins and outs or what democracy.

I think we've known each other for many years but we haven't had the opportunity to really get to know each other's work until this year in. It's i got to see some of his presenting earlier this year. I was like oh my gosh everything you talked about. I was in love with and your message is so powerful and so important. And i'm so thrilled to have you meet. I'm thrilled to be here. Yeah and the whole culture talk community so the culture tucked community that we belong as we had cynthia fortunate on here last year on the podcast and she talked a lot about the The archetype work that that she and her sister really developed in have been taken out into the world and It's it's such powerful work. Yes i have found it resonating because of might be her background types being hard of the theater world and part of performance and in play writing in novels and in movies and television shows everything that that archetypical focus on the patterns of behavior who we are as people and roundedness out. I found it resonated with me and in the terms i love. you know. They're using the term him with an. I love those those twelve the hero in a lover in the near the creator and those terms and as you know in the work we do there are so many tests out there and and a lot of them have different ways of helping us be your out more about ourselves right. And they're all great right. There are the ones i know are really wonderful and great insights into who we are relating to each other and moving to the world. I feel that big gorgeous of this culture. Todd is that it resonates deep down with rice. Story south my stories propose. I know who i am. I know who that is. And that combination of things who they are. And how i show up and i get here your that. What made in resonating make granted. I need arnav or always. There's some deep seated. Hough happens with that. I so true so true. It's so funny. Because i've been working in that essence of who you are with my clients since the very beginning and so that was has always been part of my work. I'm helping my clients build their brand from the inside out. Let's start with that essence of you and starting to integrate. The archetypes into this year has religious. Put another layer of richness in to their own understanding of who they are in how they are showing up in their businesses spent. It's really been awesome. And he said the whole story component in how we really can tie this back to her own personal stories. It's such a powerful exercise to just look at archetypes and understand. You know how they shape who we are and how they guide the choices made and the life that we've created in the work that we do as also in related when you think about so you're archetypes tell us about your archetypes are a little bit about how that shaped your life from a personal story perspective. I am a magician in my next level are four. That are all very connected. And whenever i take any of the personality assessment. I tend to be this mix of many many things. This didn't surprise me magician first and then lover caregiver. Ruler and hero are all the next level and for me magician. It hit me on seoul many levels it. I am the child who was reading fantasy novels from forever. Still do as an adult. So that magician. It just made me grin from the inside aras. How and birmingham magician that sense of magic in that sense of finding for me. My journey has been finding the essence of each person that thing that sometimes they forget their or they squished in our help. Bring to light so it's like bringing things back to life in finding things in enlightening them. That magician sense always. My work is a theater person. I a lot of people get into theater because they loved to tell stories. Don't get me wrong. i love story loves. That isn't what has kept me in the theater. World kept me in the inner world is what being hard of bringing a story. Allies does to the people who are doing that. So what does it do for actors who are embodying another story. What changes ma'am as they journey through. That what what changes for directors they help bring stories alive and all of the amazing tacking designers. All those people involved. There are many who love like how story impacts the audience which so glad that people care about that because that is how come the art won't continues and for me. I'm just such a teacher trainer. Coach ersan at heart from for over forty five years for a long time that gorgeous of the magician. And i think i see one of my wonderful mentors. And she was a magician in my life she came in and gave me live and helped me find my own sense of spirit in the midst of some kind of you know typical childhood. Dark stuff. she yeah you know. It's funny because we share the magician. Archetype that's not my primary when my primary one is the which is Very much about the responsibility and i. I often think that in my lifetime. Mike corporate days really stayed on the the hero side of it and then when i found my entrepreneurial need that this magician really became alive and you know what i see in the world and how i see in the world so that i love the magician.

"But then they'd see this one and then it'd be like, okay well. How you do seek off of this you know what I mean I think it's I. Think the franchise would go much further than this one. If there. would be such a huge franchise. No. No I I hear. You know another interesting tidbit about this one is They get the secret. When they were filming this thing they didn't let anyone know that it had a connection Blair witch and it was being filmed under the state title the Woods Obama. And actually when they first screened it at a festival, it was screamed. As the woods was fake fake posters and everything, and then midway through the movie with people started realizing that obviously had a connection to Blair witch and by the end they had replaced the posters with with the real posters. Funny, that's cool. Though I like that it's kind of wild, right so I guess. If you ever get invited to a screening for film. You never know what it could turn out to be right. That's true. That's true. That's Addicott that's interesting. Interesting bit of. But if Yeah, just just a little tidbit on on this one Again, we're both thumbs up. We disagree with the critics we disagree with the Audience Score What do you think about Mike Mike claim last week John this is a highly underrated movie. Can you get behind that? Definitely, it's a, it's a movie that's worth your time. And if it's a movies worth your time. And it's getting social scores that it is. It's definitely underrated. Right, like definitely is I think you I think you can't go wrong spending an hour and a half watching this movie if you like horror movies. And again, even if you haven't seen the Blair witch project, you don't feel watch this winter. No hop on net flicks check it out. It's worth the watch. I would argue that this one's better than the original. A ton of time to think about that I just haven't thought about it, but you could be right because you kinda strike the first one. Perfectly it was. Okay and then iconic ending. So you know what you know what just on this further moment I might have to say this one's better too. I. Think. On almost every aspect, it wasn't. It wasn't slow in the first one was slow. It just wasn't an is still had you waiting for an I even like the part because it had me waiting for people standing in the corner at the end like it had me waiting for that. And we when it happened I was like Oh God so good right. So it made me happy to see that so. I definitely argue that this is better. But you you Kinda knew it was coming but it also didn't feel like a rip off you know what I'm saying no like so you do it was coming but didn't win it was coming and then. Also, with the way, the film was going wasn't sure that if you weren't sure that it was coming. So I I liked it. I like to hold presentation of it till the end is delivery was with really done. Strongly agree my friend anything else dad. No idea meltzer. So then all we have is again Much Shawn Small for the recommendation.
