Fresh update on "bo" discussed on Financial Exchange with Barry Armstrong
"YouTube TV. Now I use food, Bo. Actually, I'm I'm a big food guy Food. When did you start using football? Max? I am a football user as well. Okay. We actually switched in January. Once we knew for sure that YouTube TV was not gonna renew Nessen, which is a mystery, which is a mustard. I was told like yours. So we said, Let's go to full boat s. So that's what I did as well, Chuck. I know you didn't because you had a way to get ness and elsewhere. But I did not. So I made the switch over to Fu Bo. And for both of you Had you noticed during the last 12 months when using those different streaming platforms that there would occasionally be times where they apparently couldn't sell the ad space, And so they would just have, like crickets chirping or a little sign from this and saying, You know, your program will be right back. Yeah, YouTube TV likes to have enjoyed the Seine before we've enjoyed it. It's like a stream or something. Have you seen a marked decrease in that recently because I have Definitely have. Yeah, it never happens on food Bo ever Chuck trying. I'm trying to think how often I see I honestly I don't really pay attention. Li, I I I don't really watch anything live, so I don't really see any ads at this point. Well, if this had been a big thing that I have been noticing when I first made the switch from cable to a streaming platform like this is you would never see that on Comcast of rise, and they always found a way to sell their ads or had excess inventory they would put on their This was definitely a thing in these digital streaming platforms. But it would seem that they are finally, at least in my experience. They're seemingly finally able to fill those ad spaces and money has been pouring into, you know, really every platform, But digital media seems to be leading the way. And the question that folks have s so if you look around in terms of, you know different platforms that have started booking additional Revenue here. Business INSIDER ad revenue up more than 30% Bloomberg Media 29% vice Media up 25% Bustle digital group. I don't even know who they are what they do up more than 25% bustling They are bustling. No doubt about it. I guess my question on all of this Is your seeing Some changes being made to how these bigger companies Google, Facebook, Apple allow for tracking of individual data. Coinciding with a massive re opening and I presumed huge spike in consumer spending. Where do we see ad dollars getting spent? And who do we think it benefits the most? I think there's no doubt that the majority of it's going to go towards Facebook and Google. Yeah, I mean, they have 87% market share. And that certainly is the easy answer. But are there any other winners that stand toe stand to benefit here? I mean, certainly this traditional media spend that we're seeing here bolsters them a little bit. Um, e just wonder if we finally start to see you know these other platforms become profit Because at this stage, you know, we've seen YouTube TV Fu bo, all of them, raising their prices, presumably because they just aren't making enough making it enough revenue elsewhere. I think it's it's going to continue to be dominated by Google and Facebook and YouTube, By the way, is an arm of Google. Yeah, Yeah, So it's if you're seeing you know, Maura ads that are actually showing up there. It just means more money is flowing towards Google. It's It's just such a highly concentrated market that if you want to get eyeballs, and you want to do that, do that easily those here to platforms you don't really have many other options if you want simplicity and breath. In any kind of ad market. It's it's awful. I think it's terrible that that's the case. I wish that both of those companies would be broken up. But That's the deal. That's that's the gig. That's the game. Speaking of retail and spending, and you know what's going on The reason America we We've seen a few surveys in terms of where the consumer spending is ticking up in particular. Now we saw in the retail sales numbers for March that Sporting good stores saw the biggest one month uptick up over 23% clothing stores saw in uptake of 18%. But according to surveys, skirts, jumpsuits, dresses, shoes selling quite a bit. Gene's the one that didn't surprise me on this list. Two of them that didn't surprise me. In hindsight, champagne selling off the shelves and shaving kits, Chuck, I know you haven't shaved your beard and you know the better part of a decade but apparent A lot of people out. There are re upping the shaving kits and I personally I just dropped off like 14 different items that my dry cleaner that didn't matter during the pandemic when I was on zoom, But finally, I'm going to be in person again, and I need to have my clothes dry clean. It's been interesting to see where money is actually getting spent over the last couple of months here. Can we talk a little bit about the trend that's happening in jeans right now. What is the trend that's happening in jeans? How wide leg jeans are returning to the forefront after I could dig my Jenko is out of the baby out of the basement. I have my jenko was ready to go and I am I am ready to go back to 1997. It's just Parents out there. What? Why? Why did you allow that to happen? I know that I know that medal rather have. I could know that middle schoolers can be rather convincing. But upwards of $100 for genes that looked like I don't know, like Hawaiian grass skirts in in their size. Whoever thought that was a good idea. All the cool kids at school are wearing them. What Hawaiian Grant? What are you talking about? They don't look like Hawaii in grass skirts. I'm not sure what to compare them to. They looked absolutely preposterous that it's I am. I am here for the return of big jeans..

Old need to save per month to be a millionaire by the time that they're sixty five so investing because we use that word saving investing interchangeably here. But you're saying even though he signed a ten million dollar contract. How much does he need to invest monthly to reach a million dollars by the time. He's at retirement.

"bo" Discussed on Bo Knows Real Estate
"I'm very quick on my speed. No kidding yeah. That's that's probably the fastest ever heard so usually that doesn't because it helps that your by a cash buyer you have to wait for a bank mortgages to come through and all that kind of stuff. So awesome. Does some today okay. So you said you have to offer like you work for brokerage is to office. North shore and downtown. Yes they have one in each round couva just main street just out just on the outside the downtown and they just opened a new office in the north shore in lynn. Vattimo earth Okay so pretend. Because it's a real thing. Pretend i don't know anything about rank cooper. I've never been there. What's the north shore. What's the market. There is a luxury homes or is it. it is luxury definitely premium market in the north shore. And it's just got such a lovely lifestyle at environment very safe. Very children friendly beautiful trails. You can ski. This got three ski hills. It's a huge drool to people and what's funny is if a lot of i've noticed a lot of children that grew up in the north shore tend to move away at comeback by on the no show. It's it is. It's always been in pre market and houses. I mean i have a story for you. happened about two weeks ago. Sure to here in my neighborhood. So i'm in a neighborhood Cavalry goal and one of my clients did a pre inspection. The listing came on. It was an old house which woking needed work. The pre inspection consistency was interesting to me. What do you consider old. It was a this was a this was a nineteen twenty two house. Okay agree hold those two sure it had needed probably about hundred grounds while on the outside and the hopeless needed gushing in. So you're looking at about two fifty hits do a whole gut one. My husband is a builder. So i kind of approximate prices for ange listed at one four and really old houses. Maybe nineteen fifties the only You're talking one point. Four million yes okay. They had ten pre inspections thirty one office had of homework today and it went for one point eight while and really you can buy a one point eight hills at least. It's a little bit more renovated and put together. I mean they need to spend a good line of money to bring it up your pa. I was shocked myself was it was the location that sold it or just a character of it her. It was a nice lot so it was a flat lot with a view place to a school so it wasn't nice launch location. What's what's an average home in that north shore area. Did you happen to know what the average sales i think. We're about one five one point. Five eight five point for him here. What about your other location more towards central downtown conditions as you're just looking at the tax detached you're you're you're looking at a similar price point really one point or one point six million in downtown condos eighty five or something like that. Wow okay yeah. We don't have numbers like that at all. so okay. so you had thirty one offers for that house. North shore as a real properties Starting on and because there's not enough stop people don't wanna move instead of. We're seeing exactly the same thing so last year. This time for winnipeg numbers are average at this time of year. Mid-february is about eleven hundred house on the market in winnipeg not the surrounding areas in whitby eleven hundred detached houses. This this week we have five heart so it's much it's less than half and like you say i've got three or four buyers that need to find something before they put on the market. So it's kind of you know somebody has to take the first step and i think once this cold smell drops it'll start coming we've had last year. It was really bizarre near the end of the year bidding on everything that came up if it was straight and level even if it needed a ton of work it was getting multiple offers. I think that's the year we're going to have again this year. it's hot. I'm working with a lot of bias and i mean i can actually quickly but obviously when you're competing with so many people and you know it's difficult because they're looking at a price point but if it exceeds so much on price point it's you're already you know pushing the limits with you'll cons to try and get them into that price point that they wanted the era they want so if the now been one hundred fifty to one hundred eighty over us game in some of the detached Going then now now having to look at something like at one point two in the looking at one point four right exactly know preaching to the choir just lower numbers here but it's the same. It's the same process. Well i certainly hope you enjoyed this information.

Not just for stream on you know. This is back in the air. But there's a lot of issues out there. And i believe there's a lot of i'll call it. This isn't a good phrase. But i'll call it mission confusion and the reason why i'm saying that i think there's a lot of A lot of things the black community. And i know i'm over generalizing here so i apologize for that that i think i need in order to accomplish a lot of different goals in there. They're not necessarily connected and one of the things. I'll be covering a coming up in the future not today but i want to put this on your mind. So you know i'm going to be talking about this is i. I think there are two things going on out there that are sometimes in conflict with each other. When it comes to the back community. And i will call them racial justice of versus racial grievance. Okay so i want to put that out there to you. And i'm not gonna. I know i'm teasing right now. Not gonna go into detail right now. 'cause actually have a good top charles bo coming up in and we'll talk about some of that but i want to put that out there. These are two kind of separate issues you know. One just is kind of based on laws and transforming the way that institutions are structured in and grievance which is for me kinda base more in opinions in people's feelings and up things like that. But i'm i'll go into more detail about that later. Little bit different But both very interesting both very wrote both very important. You know they're just. They're not always in cooperation with each other is one of the issues.

But what's not funny is what's happening so many people are you know just without food and you know they're in situations they'd have faced before you know. A lot of the countries used to this type of weather but there are places that aren't used to. I'm one of those kind of places if we had that type of thing here in southern california. It'd be a mess as well but there are a lot of organizations out there that are doing some really good work. Give a shout out to my niece. Vanessa vanessa wilmore. Who is doing some of that. Work yourself with the feed. The people dallas which is a great organization and they give food directly to people They they i know they collect money but more than money. They collect resources that they can give directly to people that needed. 'cause sometimes money is great. You know you need money for things but sometimes people just need water. You know like right now you know or you know food to feed the kids right now you know and so Those grassroots organizations like that that are ended on the ground and there's a lot of them.

Viggo Mortensen on new movie 'Falling'
"This is popcorn when we talk about. What's out there at the movies. There's a movie out there now. Called falling vigo mortenson. My guest is starring in it with this time in this movie falling. He also directs. It's the first time it's his feature directing debut and it's in many ways at top story but it's vigo to me. It's him saying. I'm going to take this on and see what happens. And what happens is so incredibly moving so figo. Welcome good to have you. Thanks is wonderful to see again. What i can't say. What attracted you to this because you wrote. This is something that came out of your own head and it feels very personal to me. But i don't know just help personnel. This it is personal but it's also I mean it's largely a fiction fictional family but the foundation of it is feelings. I have for my mother especially but by connection to my father as well into my childhood and adolescence so there are elements of truth. As far as i remember an memory subjected that after do with my upbringing and even with the aspect of dementia that that's dealt within the story. I've had a lot of experience with that. Both my parents stepfather grandparents. I've seen it up close in a caregiver. And it's something i wanted to explore. I wanted to explore the limits if there are any communication especially with people that you have a hard time communicating with other. I wanted to just more than anything asks questions. Rather than give answers. Ask myself questions and maybe half the audience are the people that you can't communicate with our the people. Obviously there are people that want to communicate with are there. People don't deserve to be communicated with or listen to i personally. Don't think so. But as person makes their own decision about that. It's i wanted to look fine. I wanted to explore the idea of empathy of communication and closer. We've gotten to the release of this movie. Which is february fifth. Us canada unexpectedly an away. Unfortunately this movie and the polarization the conflicts with this family that it deals with problems of communication are more timely than ever. Well i mean we come in the way i see admit point even low. Your movie is there's a great many flashbacks. And i should just say up front. That basically you're playing a gay man with a father who is suddenly hit by the ravages of dementia. It may even early onset and yet through the flashbacks in what we say we see. This man has always been difficult. He's been more than a handful. You know he's a racist in him. There's a person who can be a bowling and yet through the flashbacks to we see that he's capable of love. He's hard to take and yet we feel that we haven't seen except toward the end of the movie. What it was like when your character decides. I'm not gonna play at his wet. I'm going to try to give something. That is empathetic rather than something. That's hostile john. Is that yard. You're in sub it in your own life when you dealt with now in. My father wasn't anywhere near as difficult to deal with. We had better communication than john willis do in this story though sunan father but but my father was a man of his generation. He was not american use denmark but he was raised on a farm born during the depression went through the german occupation during world. War two ran away from home when he was fourteen You know self taught person who then eventually after he married. My mother moved the united states. He somehow got into business. School finished it in half the time by doing night courses nine. Just a determined person. Very self reliant. But like many men of that generation he was kind of even in his gentlest moments. A my way or the highway kind of guy. And that's just the way it was. And then you didn't adapt to changing times that well either the sixties the seventies is like what the hell's going on from their point of view. Why can't things just be the way they should be in. Men and women are women all that stuff and so there was a bit of that on my dad but but he was nowhere near as it was not as much of a conflict as you as i depicted in the movie. It's a fiction as i say this story. Even those became a father son story a basically the moral conscience to like the the the the fulcrum emotionally morally of the story really is is the mother for me. Is gwen by hannah. Gross the inspiration and the reason that they argue a lot. You know both father and son and also father and daughter. My sister played by laura. Linney the bone of contention. Is gwen a lot. So that was an important role and i. I guess that character resembles my mother and my relationship with that character in in the movie is more like my relationship with my mother than than the relationship with the father's like my own father. There's there's a lot of you that i see in this character in terms of how you play it and also how you directed wrote it which is nature of you know we see this man. He grew up in loved the farm. He loved it. He related to the horses to the answers like you. you know. there's something about nature where the best of him somehow is shown when he's with these animals he can't seem to rang. The embassy has them to is actual family which people in general yeah. It's just kind of tragic when it is said it is said and you know it's no accident that the first third of the movie threaded through it is this sequence that has to do with the duck the sequence of events right from seeing it shooting it bathing when it's sleeping with plucking cooking it and then finally you know eating it sharing it that way. let's that john that grows up to be your character of sleep. Was the dead duck. He lets him do that. He does some well. Yeah that whole thing. The story was away to introduce among things. What you're talking about the relationship that that family has with nature expos with life and death and all that would nature you. You all grow up for time on on a farm. I grew up in part. I bo bo cities and farms. I mean i learned to ride horses. When i was really little when i when i could walk and And my dad was someone who was raised on a farm And he introduced me and my brothers at the earliest possible age to campaign to know how to make a fire to forests and rivers and animals and fishing and hunting. And all those things. So i was very much part of my
Africa's Great Green Wall to combat desertification secures $16.8 billion in international finance Impact
"Now we have science writer. Rachel danske with an update on africa's great green wall project which will soon see an infusion of billions of dollars from the world bank and others this project. The great green wall is intended to serve as a bulwark against desertification of the land south of the sahara desert while at the same time supporting communities that live in this region. Okay rachel how're you doing. I'm doing well. Thanks for having me sure. This is a rape big wall. This is a big project. It's basically supposed to be this green band that spans about seven thousand kilometers across the whole hop of africa. It launched back in two thousand seven. Rachel what would you say. The progress has been since two thousand seven now to two thousand twenty one almost non-existent which is why they launched this new round of funding last month. There was an assessment that found that a fraction of the goal had been achieved so far and the goal is for twenty thirty so they realized that time was running out right throughout this piece. You make this really important distinction between planting a tree and growing a tree. Why is that so important to think about when you know thinking about restoring lands or planting trees to help prevent desertification. The first time. I heard it. I just thought well. That's a really good way to put it. And then when racer after another would phrase it that way that we don't plant trees we grow them because that's been one of the missing pieces in restoration. Efforts globally not even specific to the great green wall but just in restoration landscape and forest restoration. Generally there has been this focus on planting trees but little focus really on looking at what gets planted in the first place in paying attention to the species diversity in the planting material and making sure that it's the right tree for the right place. There's also last follow plus maintenance of the tree then there needs to be talked to someone in west africa who was saying that. He's traveled to so many countries throughout the continental. Seen so many trees planted. But where the forests. Yeah that's a really interesting way of thinking about it. Basically tree planting mania that's been happening has come from all these different projects foundations quotas. That are saying oh. It costs a dollar to put a tree in the ground and we're going to offset our carbon. We're going to green the world but no one's looking after these trees and making sure that they live beyond that for sheer gas so now that we know that. That's not a good way to go about this. There's actually a lot of research. That's found some of the best practices for restoration projects. What are some of the recommendations have come out from research. In the past ten years when paper published last year talked about ten golden rules for reforestation. And they think those summed up a lot of the recommendations really well in addition to just protecting existing forests which probably sounds obvious. But there's a lot of research on the new. I don't have the same benefits that existing ones do and it's hard to replace that beyond that involving local communities has been just incredibly important component that researchers are saying was not really part of the focus before because the restoration ecologists are focused on the physical research and they aren't trained to think about how people play into the picture and it's just so important to the survival of the trees because it's people who are planting trees and it's people who are maintaining the trees and if you don't have community by an investment in rye these trees there and interested keeping them there. The trees aren't going to last and the trees only have their benefits when they last going back to trees here for a minute you mentioned keeping old us in place for protecting them. What else is being looked at. So that's when using a diversity of species so that there can start to be restored. Biodiversity rather than just monoculture of trees. They're starting to be focused now. Also on the quality of the seeds. And what you're actually planting. And how do we build. The systems and infrastructure for collecting and improving. Seeds is going to be the most resilient seed for that species but then it's also about the genetic diversity because there can be inbreeding with plants. If you're not collecting from wide enough geographic area than you can start to sort of limit. The gene pool and that can be problematic. You talk about this example in ethiopia of a seat initiative a network that is supposed to improve the quality of seats. Can you talk about how that would work. And how it would involve the community. The provision of adequate trees deep portfolio or pets. Bo is a project in ethiopia that they're calling it a functional trees seed system. It's a multi-pronged effort. They're trying to develop standards for seed collection and sharing that. There's high quality seed that will ensure that the trees that are planted can be their most resilient they're developing maps for how to source those seeds they're trying to strengthen the research system the infrastructure and the the research system to improve seed quality and they're linking all of that to the people who will use the seeds seeds there's technical training for farmers and the local language and there are diagrams of how to store different types of seeds. They're really trying to get that knowledge to the community to farmers and local nurseries to scale up the capacity of local decentralized infrastructure. Is there another model project that people might be looking at to expand as the money comes in. Are there other areas. That are doing good things. Yeah there was one of their project that i came across the one billion trees for africa project. And it's led by this man from cameroon tabby jota. He talked about how he grew up in this thriving economy system and he went off to university and when he came back the lands that he new as a forest with no longer for us. He started planting marina cheese and cola nut trees and mingo trees and all these different trees that would restore some of the soil health that he thought had been lost but also produce food and income generating opportunities for people so that they would be invested in keeping the trees there. He called his approach. The contagion approach. Because it's just sort of caught on. He got a bunch of men and women in this one community to be involved in the tree planting the neighboring communities saw what was happening and he was very clear that it's not like a drastic change where their community sedley rich where they weren't before but the small benefits were noticeable and so the neighboring community wanted to do something similar. And so it's just been a word of mouth approach so as he developed this very grassroots success he's gotten funding from more international sources than use it to do the work on the ground in these different communities mostly in west africa. And he's starting to do more and more with the great great wall which seems very exciting so there are a couple of different findings that we talked about that suggests the way forward for this type of restoration project involving the community diversity of. They're planting making sure that they're not just putting stuff in the ground but they're actually supporting plant growth and the communities around it but another thing that comes up a lot in your story is now we kind of what should happen. Researchers have come to a lot of conclusions that are very useful. But then there's the practice what's actually happening on the ground and maybe even what will happen on the ground. What are some of the biggest impediments to implementing the results of this research. One interesting comment. That i heard was that the implementing partners people with the money don't have scientist on their teams. They don't realize how complicated it is to plant a tree into get it right and to make sure that grows the lack of knowledge in the right places and the lack of communication between the people with the money and the people with the knowledge and also the community who is going to be involved. Those conversations aren't being had something else that a here is the expectations that donors have. They want fast results. And that's not. How trees in general work. But it's especially not how effective restoration works because all of these things need to happen and they take time getting communities involved. There's a lot of upfront investment. That needs to happen. In developing all of this infrastructure and research systems with a lot faster to just go and say just plant a bunch of eucalyptus trees. Because that's what they have the seeds and planting materials for. There's a disconnect between the speed that donors want to see results and the reality of what needs to happen. I've seen that you've written about this project for years now. What do you think you're going to see if you check back in two years. I hope to see that things. Like the pats project and this other effort the one billion trees for africa a hope that they have scaled and and that they inspire or serve as models for other projects. I don't know where. I'm placing bets. It feels like there is enough of a resounding message coming from the research community about the importance of this and the importance for the effective ecosystem function restoration and the community development but also for the climate benefits and if the global fenders governments who want to plant trees for the climate benefits if they are serious than they will start listening to these researchers. This is like thousands of miles. Four thousand miles. That's like the us plus another third right east west a huge huge area to cover an across countries. And all these different people's. How is this. possible. Rachel i mean this is a global scale. This is a huge project. it's huge. It's huge and that's probably why it sounded like the great idea when they announced it. And why didn't go anywhere for ten years but it's the partner agencies that i've spoken with involved in this project. The great queen wall are really clear that it's an environmental program but it's also the social alliance when that's meant to economic development but also really impart some resilience. See into these communities. Who are the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. That's why they're really ramping. Up this funding now because they see the value for the planet from a climate change perspective but also for the millions of people across this gigantic area. Pinks rachel thanks for having me.

"bo" Discussed on Bo Knows Real Estate
"You're you're adding to your credit rating You are now a property owner. Even though the bank owns ninety five percent of it doesn't really matter you're seen by society and your employers and banks you've seen as somebody in a different kind of category your homeowner. You're adulting in style toll thing in style. Okay yeah so. Of course now the problem. The problem is we these low rates and we got people can can afford to buy it. Can they find something in my answer to that is right now. It's pretty tough last year. There was eleven hundred houses for sale at this point. And right now we got less than five hundred. So what do you say to people who wanna wait to say. Hey what i'm ready. Maybe i've got enough money for the down payment. But i wanna wait till summertime. What are what are they gonna do. What's a good tip for them right now. Well as long as you can do that could potentially save you thousands of dollars in taxes. So what you can do. Is you can off until the end of february. You can contribute money towards the two thousand and twenty. Rsp's so let's say you have ten thousand dollars money. Sitting either cash or a tariffs receives account. It makes sense to take the money placed into an rsp. It does have to sit there for ninety days. But then you can put out of there towards the down payment now. Of course always recommend. Please talk to your accountant or rational professional. What's in your best interest. But when my wife. I bought our savings put into an rsp february. We got a bigger income tax return which that money went towards putting house. If it's a great way to game the system so to speak the a little bit extra money in the saves money on those pesky taxes absolutely just even idea is if you are in the thirty five percent tax bracket. Let's just say as a number. You put ten thousand dollars in two hours be here. Income tax is going increased by thirty five hundred dollars. That's three and a half thousand dollars. You would not have had so but as check with your tax check with your professional your accountant or whatever and make sure you have enough room in your rsp to be able to do that. But that's a great way to put your money short. You have to keep it in the for ninety days in order to get the tax refund but then it comes back out. It's still your money and there's no. There's no penalty or anything. You just have to pay it back over the next fifteen years exactly. so awesome. Awesome possum so Yeah i i wish we could find people.

How to Repair Your Skin Barrier With Celebrity Facialist Joanna Vargas
"Let's start with the basics what exactly is your skin's moisture barrier and why is it there. What is the do well. I mean i think you know we talk so much into butte and industry about like wrinkles and bo talks and things like that we forget the skin actually has a function and its function is to be a barrier between us and the environment so the skin's moisture barrier is the outermost layer of your skin. It helps protect the body It helps retain water and moisture It defends against like bacteria in the environment environmental stressors and you know prevents things from penetrating into the skin so that we don't have a reaction so it has like a a very important function for us. It's the fundamental of what the skin does and we talk about it at the least i feel It is the most important part about our skin because it makes us look plump in juicy and healthy and soft when it's healthy and so yeah it's something that's very important. No matter what kind of skin type you have no matter your age okay. Yeah that was gonna be my next question. Like other certain types skin types or skin eight inches that are more prone to having damaged skin barrier. Mostly i'm talking about like the skin on your face. Well i mean. I think for example like winter is a time of year where i think a lot of people experience to some degree Some irritation due to the loss of moisture in the environment. And therefore your skin gets a bit patchy may be if you are out during the day for a long period of time you'll have like readiness on your face but typically you know there's obviously people that have just in their dna some skin sensitivity. You know some psoriasis eczema. That's that has a genetic component you know and then there like the people who have poor digestion they might have some patchiness in readiness and some irritation. But it doesn't it can happen even if you have oily skin. It really depends on what you're using on your your skin. What your habits are in terms of your skin. Those really affected a great deal. And so how do you tell the difference between an impaired skin barrier versus you know wind. Burn or zima or psoriasis. How do you know if your skin barriers been disrupted. Well you know this skin house tendency to to show sensitivity patches. So i i'm sure everybody can remember a time when they've had like a dry patch on their face and may the rest of the skin feels okay or maybe you have my son. Has that right now. So i'm listening with the keenest ear. How old is your son. He's he's six and he's got a patch right beside his cheek that he's had for about six weeks and it just so drier and rudder. Yeah continue my boy who is now fifteen Have that as a younger person also happens easier because they play out. Fight a lot and that really dries you out. You know rose atia redness itchiness itchy skin and share a lot of people have itchy scalp during the winter all of back stock visible. Sign that your your skin. Barrier is malfunctioning so to speak and it needs some soothing and comfort and some rehydration ximines. Psoriasis are more extreme versions of it. which also occur in patches on the skin But there are a lot of you know that you would have to consult a doctor to really determine if it was something that was in your genetic makeup or if it was something caused by something topical or something in your diet like an allergy of some kind right right. Because i feel like that's with With eczema almost like immunity related. Or it's like almost like an immune response rather than it can be absolutely and it can also just mean that you're something that you can't digest properly and so your your bodies having a little bit of trouble. There are a lot of different causes for it. Which is why you know. You can also have a yeast overgrowth in your gut. But that would be things that if i suspected that if you came meant for facial and it looked like that to me i would just send you to a doctor. Not a doctor. So i don't right. I try to stay in the lame a fair and respect that and so how does the skin barrier become damaged or compromised. What are some of the main you know factors you know. A a very common factor would be over exfoliating. I remember when i first became an esa titian in the late nineties. It was like a fashion to have cholic acid in every single. Step of your routine. In how like in the beauty industry like ingredients. Become like the thing. And you wanna put it on in every step like i had clients that were using a glycol at wash ugly colic toner a glide colleague serum and moisturizer and everybody's skin was like flaky and read and sensitize. It was very hard to give atias to those people but also sun damage can cause it. You know Prescription acne medications and prescription retinol formulas can cause it. I've seen people use essential oils essential oils on their face and they get Compromised if you if you wash your face in the shower shower water is way too hot for your face back could cause it Chemical peels flying too much back in in the before time when we used to travel places on even air conditioning in caused so mike mobs of different causes But usually i would say the number one offender is over exfoliating or over. You know acclaimed being over eager in the chemical kill type department. That sort of stuff now. I i have a follow up question if you don't mind about is the prescription retinol because you know my skin does get extremely dry when i use it and And it starts to become red. And i feel like that's expected you kind of expect this dryness. So what is the difference between dryness and compromise skin barrier. Is there one. Well sure i mean dryness is the beginning of it right you don't you don't want your skin to be overly dry because that that is compromising gonna lead to you know craziness which will lead kind of like the the compromising actors like your. Your skin won't be able to take as much stress from the environment as the result of that overly dry situation. You're creating. I don't have a lot of clients anymore that use prescription retinal because there are so many great over the counter formulas. That don't do that. So i i feel like that you know. I've been in sedition for over twenty years. That's changed a great deal at least in new york. But i think you know the difference between having you know when you like right now. I'm extremely dry. And my skin feels a little bit tight but it's not read in. It's not flakier itchy when it starts to become itchy in certain spots. That's when you know you've crossed over into a compromised moisture barrier and that and you know you really should wait until that point to start treating it if this dried tight feeling. I'm going to have to handle that today. So it doesn't
How to Stand Out in a Fitness Revolution with Khalil Zahar
"Today we'll be talking about how to stand out in a fitness revolution because we are parts of a fitness revolution. I can tell you that right now. I mean i've got peleton in my gym right here on thinking about getting a mirror i mean. There's there's a lot of things that are going on. In this world it is a revolution so khalil. That leads me to my first question of why boxing like did you see a trend in the boxing space or is this more born from a passion for the sport. Yeah it's a great question. You know our story really tells that answer well so a lot of people know us for fight camp today but we actually originally started with a product called hicks so h. y. k. S which was like a terrible name But basically are. I started boxing in my life. Pretty late when it was about Twenty one years old and you know my background is actually more in soccer. But i really wanted yet. I fell in love with the sport. And i wanted to compete in studying competitive sport. The twenty one years old. It's it's you know you're kind of behind so at that point. I really wanted to shortcut my way to the east of lucien possible. That was very really adamant about you. Know having the best training regimen possible really tried to optimize single aspect of it and that led us know me to do you want to measure myself on a regular basis and there was not a lot of measuring out there for boxing specific stuff so we created this first version of the product. That's our punch trackers you with them on your race. The calculate the types of country throw measures the speed of every punch and you could recreate performance profile it and that went on to be a very successful product elite community you know. We had multiple olympic teams using it a lot of pro boxers in pro ufc fighters using it And then because boxing anime kickboxing Is a very special sports. Where ninety five percent of. It's not like ninety nine percent of the people that engage in it actually don't entering the ring and get hit but just do it for the fitness aspect of it so we can you know our initial products stuttered to spill two very different. You know typical customer and that kind of drought. It drew us into the fitness world. Fire nation. i really want you to just think that. Hey there's multiple ways to kind of make your start. make your splash. Is it because of a trend or is it because of a passion can it. Maybe be a combination of both. I mean that can kind of be where a zona fire lies. And they can really be a spark. And then of course lease to we can flag ration- and khalil for you. Since you started fight camp how have you seen the connected. Fitness industry evolve. How would just are connected to other people live or you know whether we've got stuff strapped on this. This is kind of connecting all of our stats. What we're doing here. I mean are people working from home. Instead of gyms is actually become the norm. Absolute thing it. It will be for portion of the majority of the portion of the fitness community. I think we're still you know like obviously with covid things have been accelerated loved. But you know we really believe that in the long run working out in a workout room makes a lot more sense to have in your home the same way. You actually have living room in the same way. You have a home theater in a big screen. Tv and a kitchen. We think it's going to be an extension part of our living spaces just because it's not something you you you're doing only once a month you know like a good fitness routine will engage in it at least at least three times a week so you know having to add friction every time that you have to do this with the commute and having to hit the class right on time where it starts. We just don't think it's aligned with the frequency in which you have to engage with it so that's one aspect. The second aspect is like home fitness. Home fitness is very popular today but it started a long time ago You know. And i'm sure some people remember jazzercise tai-bo that was really like the the beginning of the category but you know it led to a lot of like scan products especially specifically like in the late nineties. A lot of infomercial at the end of the night like black and white. And you don't train trying to target people that really wanted to buy a dream but now this silly inc a fitness and a healthy lifestyle and i can feel that this new generation of companies are lot more thin. -tic they're genuine. They're offering a better way and they're not targeting someone who's you know trying to press on the fact that you know you may not feel good about yourself. Look at all these people in shape. But they're they're targeting a healthy lifestyle. And i think they're building the products accordingly as well. I mean khalil. It's critical these days to stand up above the noise to be unique from your competition. I mean that just every industry a hundred percent across the board and let's be honest. Cop is fierce in the fitness space. So what specifically have you done to make fight camp standout. We're yet to see a serious competitor in boxing and kickboxing right. Like we. You know we. There's some concepts out there but you know when we started it was not about. You know trying to beat the competition. It was more. You know like there's a very unique opportunity here and being the first to bring a connected experience to boxing and kickboxing from home. And you know. We thought the power of teaching people how to do boxing. Well was also like you know a statement for you. Know the growth of boxing with a lot of franchise that were growing as well. You know like pre covid. Boxing gyms and kickboxing gyms. The nation were growing very very fast. It was becoming a very big fast-growing exercise that was gaining in popularity. But you know. Boxing is not easily. You know it's not easily accessible in terms of flake. There's a lot of technique you can just get a bag and hit it but it is not proper boxing. You actually have to develop the foundation you have to. You know work on your reflexes and then you have to know why you through a certain bunch and why you don't throw that certain bunch and how to move so we wanted to provide in the centric experience and at the same time naked interactive and. There was nobody else that was doing that at a time. Fire
Notre Dame Lands Marcus Freeman At Defensive Coordinator
"Just ended the last hour talking about the reports. That bo pollini is going to get four. Four million dollar lump sum payoff to to after being fired as the defensive coordinator and there's been a lot of speculation and even some reports that the That lsu was on the verge of hiring. Marcus freeman from the university of cincinnati. But pizza animal has just reported that he is going to notre dame instead of always breaking stories literally as he's coming on the air here pete great to have you on. This was a much watched battle between a number of schools for marcus freeman. Good afternoon and tell us what happened. Well i this is what one of the more public and hotly contested coordinator Tussles that i can recall in In in recent seasons anyway there's been a few a few of them over the years and You know we'll we'll we'll never know only only the only the folks in the grotto will really know How much notre dame has a market because their private but you know. Lsu lsu is ready to pay him Both leaning plus money and You know he went to both places this week. And i think at the end for For marcus freeman. Who is cincinnati. Thirty three might be thirty four year. Old defensive coordinator and the architect of that That great cincinnati defensive wanted this year one the afc and then Loss to george on a last second field goal in the in the peach bowl. I think for for marcus. There was geography and You know there will be some stability right. You got notre dame brian. Kelly is just steady ship there and You know there was a lot attractive. I think about. Lsu they were. I think on for twenty four until defense or some some number that would be easily improved upon with some new blood in better schemes. And obviously they probably have more raw talent down there so i mean really a really a compelling decision for a bright young coach. Call that we're going to be hearing a lot about in the In the next couple of the next couple of years course the next guy will probably not be thrilled to because all the attention was on freeman. But where does she go next. That's a that's a really good question really. Good question You know they they. They made hard shortages at At freeman and he was he was clearly be The target and the guy they wanted. And i i don't know From ahead who. Who were they go next.

"Welcome to the first episode of when the podcast for twenty twenty one today. We're gonna look at the january market update and have a quick call with mike. Shorter of mortgage architects are coming up. You're listening to the bone knows real estate podcast tips and advice for home buyers sellers and donors with award winning remax agent bo kaufman right. Happy new year everybody. This is bowl confident. Remax performance realty and welcome to the first episode of twenty twenty one. This is winnipeg's real estate podcast and the first one in the month we always do our market update. And that's coming up next the Give you a little hint there. There's some awesome numbers some very interesting numbers coming out especially after the listings expired on december. Thirty first that's usually a big day when listening expire. And you're going to be surprised by how few listings there are on the market right now. Dry twenty neighborhood and you're going to be hard pressed to find for sale signs right now. That is this is probably the tightest of the market has been in sixteen years that i've seen it but first up. We're going to call my buddy. Mike shorter of mortgage architects. I've asked him to prepare a feel good story. Something that happened in twenty twenty where he helped somebody get a mortgage or help somebody out. That couldn't be helped anywhere else. And so let's see what he has to say. I think we start the year off on a positive note here. Let's see what he has to say. Hello hey mike. Happy new year. It's calling hey happy new year to you as well how you doing moreno. I'm doing great. How about yourself good. Good did you do a lot of partying over the years. I don't think you did right. Nobody did get together side. Enjoy some beautiful weather. We've been having lately. The this is awesome. I guess today was plus two whatever in january and it just gets us that much closer to the spring. Exactly what that means. Free market time hold Written article about what people should do to prepare and we talked about that in a couple of weeks ago. But now tell you i'm just want to call you can reach out and see if you've got a feel good story for something that Worked out well or somebody. You made happy to end twenty twenty. I do actually. I haven't existing clientele. What ellie to do. I need to keep in touch with my clients about once a year or so and i noticed that one of my clients from about two and a half years ago was paying an interest rate of over three percent now and the thing we thought that was actually a good rate not that long ago and so it gives them a phone. Look let's do the math and see dozen a sense for you to breaker mortgage. Yes or no and so what we did. We did the math. They did have to pay a penalty but they had a lot of equity in their home and we found that not only were we able to save above a hundred and fifty dollars a month on their mortgage payment but we were able to roll their car payment into their mortgage so now instead of paying their mortgage plus another five hundred and fifty dollars a month. The car we saved one hundred dollars a month. My mortgage payment saving five hundred dollars in a vehicle payment so a family of four is now going to be saving seven hundred dollars a month while saving for retirement. Let's let me ask you put some numbers on it. Like how high quote unquote was their mortgage like not the dollar amount but the the percentage here so they're interested. Their pain was about three percent. And and what are you able to get people now right now for them. We got read a one point. Six five percent is locked in or is that flexible. So it's actually unique product where it's a very mortgage but the payment amount doesn't change of interest rates go up what happens is interest rates. Go up the payments stays the same a little bit less dependent goes towards principal live a more towards interest. Sustainably can set their budget for the next five years. It's beautiful. I remember talking about that. A couple of episodes ago you are a big proponent of having an open mortgage especially when it's something like this where it's the lowest rate and let it fluctuate a little bit because let's face it three or two years. We thought three percent. It's as low as it's ever gonna go it. It isn't so this has worked out well. One of the reasons that like the variable is that it gives the lowest penalty and you have to break your mortgage as we say. Life is variable. Your mortgage should be okay. Awesome so you'd ended up saying seven hundred bucks a month And really nothing. They had to do other than to meet with you inside some. I exactly took maybe an hour and a half a work. They're going to save the money. The clients are very happy. A little bit of a cap off the gentleman works in the healthcare industry has been a very stressful year for him. He'll say long hours a lot of suffering they've seen and so they're really brighten their dead christmas really mental to me as well awesome. That's those kind of things that make us all feel good when we can help somebody. Everybody needs help. But that's really nice touch with the healthcare service. That i like that. It was a nice capital very busy year for us. What do you see happening in the next couple of months. You probably an overnight but the the number of listings are way down. are you seeing activity. Has it dropped off is expected pickup of. What are you seeing right now. So i have a lot of clients who've been preapproved who are struggling to find the right house. Find a place that where they actually accept their offers are getting accepted. And so there's a lot of buyers who want to buy a home. They see the value in buying home. But then i'll finding the right place thought putting home market. It could be a good opportunity for that. And i said that in my recent podcast. I think a week ago. I said the first few houses now when they coming on the market they should see some really good activity on their listing. Solve if you're listening to this if you've got a house even a condo but house especially in a two hundred fifty range of five four hundred thousand anything in there. It's there's gonna be some good activity on one other thing to consider. Is that either if you own rental property right now or if you thought about owning property we've got rental rates right now in the one point seven to one point eight range and the best part is you can pay it off over thirty years and so you can get a very low payment on it. And there's a lot of demand right now for rental so be very profitable. Tiny byron lower property or to refinance a rental property. Lower your payment pulsing equity out and make more the. That's good and again if you can find a property that's the problem. I looked at a couple of days ago last year this time. We had eleven hundred houses on the market. A guest how many we had january first this year. I'm gonna guess maybe a tenth of that. Oh it's not that big a drop but instead of eleven we had four hundred eighty the lowest in entire city of winnipeg in all price ranges. so that's way way down. Normally we would be around one thousand nine hundred thousand eleven hundred as be that low. It's tough for anybody to find house. So even for investors who want to buy a rental property and condos is the same picture lost you. We had five hundred six available on january first this year. Three hundred.
"bo" Discussed on Happy Sad Confused
"It's like well the funny thing you mentioned for the mall talk which is coincidentally also. Hbo max guys you're selling hbo. Max subscriptions today bo shows on there too. Oh yeah but they but they both were approached in an similar way and that in that they both are very heavily. Improvised gnomes s show infamously. The story is that there's a sixteen page kind of outline for that film Soderbergh is actually just on the podcast. I was talking to him about what them all talk as well and similarly he had an outline essentially and had a direction for his actors As you well know you know having been eaten part of the world like there's been that push and pull in the last fifteen twenty years between like improv and script and like maybe leading. Maybe too heavily on improv. When one thing is certain type of improv is leave to maybe lean to have. It's just. I don't like directionless improv. It feels like you're riffing trying to find like a joke rather than like. Let them all talk. They're always riffing in character on story exactly. Yeah exactly the story becomes like the really sub textual relationship between people where was more successful or has more money or as better off or like this. How the subtext of people's relationships plays in the stuff that you would never think to right there so many moments and let them talk. That are like he's human counter intuitive moments that you would never ever writing a script because it wouldn't read right but then when someone does it. It's like getting incredible moment in the beginning. Let them all talk with the first scene of lucas hedges news at the billiard day that he's playing with his friends and he does like a weird is like a scream to his friends. That like it may have been lucas just like screwing up a line but it just. It's just absolutely like that type of lightning moment. that only can happen spontaneously. And i wish that like the word improv was in such a dirty word because i feel like people say they say a movies improvident. They feel like oh well. It's nothing like i feel like the actors in let them. All talk are not getting credit because people think they're acting are they're improving so it's easy and it's like no. It's not. It's not like that. It's it's it's way more difficult than that to be open in human in that way on unscreened so i wish that performances that used improv were given more credit and it's not like meryl streep improvised her way onto a boat. It wasn't she was like. Hey let's go to that cruise ship and they're like okay. I guess we're one follow merrill. I think yeah so. It's like i almost wish. They didn't tell everyone who was improvised because people would have given the performances way more right wouldn't have given them their do if they didn't get clouded by that dirty word. Where where are you at right now. In terms of your attitude about performing whether it's it's acting or stand up it's not even in your mind at all or is that a closed chapter in your life closed I mean wilders. The logistic closing to it. We'll sure for sure but No i mean. I'm open to it. I mean it's all about just for me like it's motivated by wanting to say something and then like where's the best place to say this right and there certainly is something that i was maybe more terrified of. Now that it's been now that it's really been taken away from me has become you know maybe appealing again but Yeah it's difficult. I don't know it's a strange time. Strange way to engage the world. It's also as it's very tough to to offer when it feels just like the world is just drowning in opinion and drowning in commentary to feel like. You're going to be additive when when it feels like the most additive thing would actually be subtracting from some sort of way it does feel like frankly like since eighth grade like you're not really on social media at all. It's like you know. I searched deadline. It's not like they're like four. Different bo burnham stories. You're kind of laying low doing your thing and there's nothing wrong with that except it's just like it's not the norm in the where people sometimes i feel the impulse to to be seen constantly to be You know even in a year where no one's actually out and about they're finding ways to tiktok or instagram or make themselves feel relevant and it's clearly to your credit. I don't think you have. That could Don't i might. Probably i mean i'm probably. I have thirst definitely thirsty but it just like i mean i've also i started to young so i've i've i've had out of your system would earlier than most or not even that. It's just that i'd been around too long. I realized that. I've been around too long for half of my life now in some way and i i realized that like i i would understand anyone at any point getting tired of me so i feel like i. I am only. I've really just had. I only want to engage with the world. When i have something to really put out there like. I really think we need to talk more about like our cultural emissions not just our physical emissions. And it's like i'm not really gonna. You're only going to hear from me. When i have something that i've really really worked very hard on and think is worthy of your attention. I mean the thing that i think is really really strange when i see like comedians. Whatever it's like just like on twitter commenting on every single thing. That happens every day and then it's like and then you wanna put out a special or than you wanna put. It's like well who like it just like who who cares. Though i've i've i've i've been hearing from you this entire time and like Strange strange it's also like i. I really think the only way to for me to make stuff is is in silence you know. I can't like i have to don't everybody as a as a sounding board everybody weighing in on on your your sesame street development deal yeah exactly going like trying out an idea here trying to get the impulse. I get the impulse. it's just.

"Vogue burnham from. Stand up comedy to becoming a filmmaker with eighth grade to a starring role in promising young woman. Guys josh horowitz. Welcome to another edition of happy. Second fused happy new year guys. Welcome to twenty twenty one. We made it. The darkness is behind us. Maybe some darkness ahead. There's always said but more light than dark. Let's all hope and pray and make it happen. Think positive thoughts as we begin this new year We're starting off with a fun. One bo burnham first time guest unhappy set confused you know in for his fantastic comedy his comedy specials. That's sort of where he made his name and on youtube and then of course with eighth grade a couple years back he wrote and directed that fantastic film. Starring elsie fisher. I love that movie. I got to know a little bit on that silly award circuit. He's hard to miss an a crowd by the way he's like nine feet tall so and he's like younger than every other awards nominee so he was easy to gravitate towards in that year And i was thrilled to catch up with him again actually twice in the last year because i saw him early in the year at sundance when promising. Young woman debuted caught up with him and carry. Morgan who is the true centerpiece by the way. She is the promising young woman at the center of that film. Abo- has a sizeable has. Es the leading leading male role so good for him And anyway. I got a chance to catch up with them about that film and now is a real treat because it really was. Maybe my favorite film of sundance and one of frankly my favorite films of twenty twenty. Do the top ten list. Maybe i still will. I'm feeling the peer pressure will see. It's one of the best films of the last year. A great bit of satire. comedy black comedy drama. It's got a little bit of everything. It is definitely its own beast very much. I would think if you're gonna compare to anything. I think of the great gusman santa film to die for. If you remember that film in the coal kidman. I don't say too much about the promise because it's watch wissant and turns but carry morgan. Basically plays a woman who has been wrong and who feels wronged and is out for revenge against men who have taken advantage of her and other women in her life and Y- it goes to some dark unexpected places but it is thoroughly entertaining from start to finish. Go in and enjoy everything that promising woman has to offer including a great performance from bo. Burnham who not only has the chops as a stand up comedian clearly and as a filmmaker but hold his own against carey mulligan. Who may be the best actor working today. So that's that's that's quite an achievement for bow. And i'm thrilled. That gave us an opportunity to catch up after nearly year. Apart and Bo is nothing. If not frank and honest and funny about what. This last year has been for him. You know. it's been difficult for him like it's been difficult for most if not all of us.

Yes sad and confused her. I i like gentle euphemisms for i think what's going on right now and you might need to add a few more slashes confused totally fucked up and yet de de personalized dead reborn dead again. I will take this. Forty minutes of distraction with you though hopefully will cheer each other up a little bit amidst this hellfire. I'm curious what what was. What was this. you're supposed to be for you and what it turned out to be. Will you know what okay. This is a good example. I was supposed to turn thirty. And i and i did kind. I was gonna say it was bad but they didn't destroy your birthday to tonight was all i was always like i never have. I had a birthday party since. I was fifteen and i right people birthday. I was like. I'll heather thirty and we'll all do some and and really sad. Yeah i i mean i. It's silly to talk about. Obviously the all of what's happened in the context of my stupid short like privileged life like having it better than most other people or most well other than the my chemical predisposition to not be able to experience joy. But we're on the phone together because we share this. Well i was gonna say. I mean you've been very open in talking about how you've dealt with anxiety over the years and i'm curious like have you coped in the most collectively stressful year in modern history. Like you're you know it's been it's been i. I went through the period that other people anxious people are people with whatever mental health issues. I know people had said well when the world really felt like it was ending. I actually felt great because like it's like i'm always worried that the world's gonna i'm always worried things going to be bad so when things really are bad i kind of have like a sense of calm and i had an. I had that a little bit but then it kinda kept going and yeah. I mean it's hard for everybody. I mean but i take i take solace in the fact that but also am sad about the fact that every single person i talked to seems to be in a very particular crisis like it's immigrant not all in the same crisis like my clothes like everyone's kind of going through something very specific during this time and like were kind of all uconn maybe just united by the fact that we're all going through our own thing but it's it is a deeply like for many people..
"Wonder Woman" Earns $16 Million At B.O.
"Woman, 1984. Came out over the weekend, the best box office debut since the start of the Corona virus pandemic, according to the Hollywood Reporter of Wonder Woman, 1984, starring Gal Cadeau earned roughly $16.7 million this weekend, and that's not counting The HBO. Max Buy's Now, Abdul, You've seen this movie? Yes, we're not going to pull the T k w spoil it for people. But I've seen a lot of reviews online off people saying, Yeah, the first one was okay. But this one Well, what they what they tried to do, in my opinion is kind of developed. The the first movie was like No, it's It's new. It's clear from this all action suspense. You really had to have a whole lot of time for character development. And so they tried to do it a little bit more. And the second one, which was which was okay. I mean, I liked it. I enjoy to feel like I walked in. And because here's my thing for a good movie. Did you go to the theater? Did you watch it on HBO? Max? What? To the theater? Okay, Because I don't need to. I need a big screen and I'm accident. All the other all that other stuff. And so I could tell how good a movie is about How many times I looked at my watch? Because if I look at my watch about our into it, it's like, OK, everybody gets one time. But then, like the second or third time was like, okay, I need to leave now. Did not look at my watch One time that it was Okay. I thought Shut up. God, kiddo, did fine. Up. Pablo Pascal did find is the Maxwell Lord through the technically the bad guy who, by the way, is not modeled after Donald Trump. He's mild after a bad guy actually in the comic book.

"Home buyers sellers and donors with award winning remax agent bo kaufman. All right. let's get right to the point. I think twenty twenty one will be great. Of course the shit show. That was twenty twenty. Set the bar pretty low. But i think twenty twenty one is even going to be great even if you don't measure it against what just happened. So let's take a look back and recap what did happen. A number of industries like restaurants airlines personal service providers and many others were hit hard by this pandemic. some of them went out of business entire industries had to lay off people. So it's hard on the economy. Why am i mentioning this. I'll get right to that in a minute. Real estate was early on deemed as an essential service. And it's easy to explain why and it's easy to defend this move. A single real estate transaction can be credits for an average of forty thousand dollars worth of economic spinoff that is taxes real estate fees of course lawyer fees moving cost furniture renovation costs that kind of thing on top of real estate transactions can be done in a relatively safe manner open houses aside which have been stopped a long time ago. Realistic transactions tend to be in small groups so one on one couple of buyers and the real estate agent and there are safeguards in place to make sure that the sellers are out of the house during the showing that the buyers sanitized before going in wear masks etcetera etcetera now speaking with several agents across north america a couple of weeks ago. I interviewed nick. Kite of ottawa. And before that. It was debbie drummond in las vegas. I find that The situation where the same all across north america buyer activity remained strong but listings. Were we're lacking there wasn't a lot of listings out. There and winnipeg is no different. Why are the buyers. Swapped will interest rates are at an all time low and with a lack of inventory. What that does is unfortunately create a lot of worse so i took a look at houses that are priced between three hundred and three hundred and fifty thousand in winnipeg and i went back to two thousand fifteen as example so if you had a house listed between three hundred and three hundred and fifty thousand chances where seventy two point. Four percent that it would sell. That's pretty decent number in twenty seventeen two years later. That number was eighty three point. Seven percent in twenty nine thousand nine hundred dropped back down to seventy seven point eight percent this year if you listed a house between three hundred and three hundred and fifty. Your chances were eighty seven point four percent. That's better than five in six. That your house would sell. That is the best percentage that i've found in recent times and that comes directly from the fact that there's a lot of buyers but not a lot of inventory for them to look at when i recorded this episode on december twenty nine i took a look at winnipeg listings and there was five hundred and thirty six detached houses for sale in winnipeg last year. That same number was over fourteen hundred so we're less than half of the available listings. We had just a year ago. What do i think we'll estate is going to do in twenty twenty one. Well i see the light at the end of the tunnel for the pandemic. There are two vaccines in play. A third one is not that far away and it does even rumor of a fourth one so as those vaccine come online and meet the demand of the general population. I think the economy is going to come back even stronger now. Despite the bad times that twenty twenty has produced. We've seen that. There's been a lot of real estate sales. The real estate board in winnipeg is has not done their final numbers yet. But i expect that we're going to see a banner year as far as sales goal. So what's going to happen. Once those industries that have been mostly affected comeback online and comeback as strong as ever. Hopefully but i the reason. I believe twenty twenty one. It'll be a bright one. Interest rates are expected to remain low. Well beyond twenty twenty one and couple that with the higher listing activity. I think it'll be very good year for selling and buying a home in our city in the near term. I believe that the first homes to be listed around february march are going to see incredible buyer activity. I've seen this directly before. I hit a listing in river heights and it was early february and i did have an open houses as well pre pandemic the several years ago and people were lined up down the street because buyers over the winter holidays and over january take a break but then they comeback strong in the spring. Spring is definitely the time to be selling your house in the first place and with this much. Fire pent-up demand. I think this the spring is going to be superb so if you look into cell being early to market might not be about idea. Get your home ready now fix anything that needs to be repaired replaced worn out carpets scuffed or worn out paint and call your favorite realtor for pre listing examination and to get some final tips.

And today's episode number one forty four main topic is going to be the most recent winnipeg condo market update as well as answer the question our condo fees total waste of money and lastly we're going to examine a community in ireland lakes first condo fees money out the window right. I mean that three hundred bucks. Four hundred even more time is just wasted money. Well not so fast. There are actually a number of items condo fees pay for which a house owner would have to pay separately for example. Water bills comes to mind. They are usually included in the condo. Fees there are also a number of expenses which are greatly reduced when you own a conduct. An example here is home. Insurance in most cases to building insurance is already included in the condo fees whereas a house owner has to pay for them out of pocket. I've written an in depth article on variety of costs and savings. A condo owner can expect go to bono's dot homes slash condo fees. link is. well you guessed it in the show notes all right. Let's take a look at the condo market update as it is on december first two thousand twenty first highlights for the month during the month of november. We sold sixty five condos in winnipeg. That's down quite a bit from ninety eight in october. But it's still higher than the fifty five we sold last year. Same time period and the most expensive condo sold during the month of november was four hundred and ten thousand in headingley similar to houses. Condo inventory is dropping right now we have a total of five hundred and three condo listings. That's down from five sixty six last month and down from five eighty seven the previous year and every price range is affected condos thousand two hundred seventy eight. That's down from three twenty one last year and we have condos that are over two hundred and fifty thousand. We've got two hundred and twenty five. That's don from to sixty six last year and again similar to houses. The sales are actually over last year. During the month of november we sold forty three condos in the two hundred fifty thousand range forty-three as opposed to thirty six last year. More expensive condos over two hundred and fifty. We sold twenty two as opposed to nineteen same time period last year and that affects the level of inventory. Right now under two hundred and fifty thousand. We haven't hundred ninety four days as opposed to sixty seven last year and condos over a quarter million. We have three hundred thousand seven days worth of inventory as opposed to four twenty last year and as far as newly listed condos coming to market. It's dropping over last month but it's still ahead of last year's pace saw in the previous month we've listed one hundred and seventy three condos as opposed to one hundred and fifty four last year. So this pattern. Kind of follows. What houses are doing Just not as drastic there are. Fewer condos available are higher condo sales. But it still doesn't compare to the housing market last week. You heard me talking about reasons. Why buyers should continue looking for properties through the winter. That is never more true than with condos because a lot of the negatives that you associated with looking at houses in the wintertime for example. You can't see the landscaping tough to see the roof. While most of the things don't matter as far as condors go because you're buying especially with high rise condos you're not buying though the roof you're gonna get a engineering report done by the condo corporation as the state and the quality of the building so wintertime should not be a deterrent at condos. So let's take a look at an example conduct community in the south end of winnipeg and talking about copper stone estates which are located on shore boulevard deep in island. Lakes is the community that was built in two thousand and seven. They have forty condos in twenty buildings. So they're all site by sites. And i often called this style of condo like the best of both worlds. Because you have your own house you own entrance. These have full basements. Of course they have in sweet laundry and all that kind of stuff so it's basically like a house and in this case it's a side by side but you can also get these standalone throughout the city there this condos so the do have condo restrictions such as for example. You can't put a fence up in the backyard or you may not be able to put a shed up in most of these type of condos so there are restrictions. I live in something like this. And i can tell you. Sometimes these restrictions may seem like a bit of a pain but they're there for a reason they are there to prevent your neighbor from painting his house lime green and putting up a lean to in the back. So it's it's a good thing. These really have very few restrictions. Said this cop persona states. You're allowed to have pets so long as they're not a nuisance you're allowed to rent them out which is the case in most condos now. There's no mark rental restrictions however your tenants must abide by the same rules. As if you're the owner property taxes in this these units range in size there are a few there in the fifteen hundred and fifty square foot and there are a few of the other extreme over two thousand square foot. The majority of them are between sixteen sixty and seventeen seventy square feet taxes in these range around forty two hundred to forty seven hundred depending on the size of the unit kind of fees are two hundred and sixty five dollars per unit no matter how bigger smaller that's because most of these fees really are the landscaping the maintenance the Grass cutting so everybody's yard is roughly the same so they don't really care. How big your unit is. It's two hundred and sixty five dollars per unit. As i said in sweet laundry these new notes also have double attached garages full basements. Which of course you can finish or you can just leave it. As is whichever the case may be there are no common elements to speak of. There's no external buildings new pools anything like that. Most of these kinds of complex in winnipeg don't have anything like that. Each unit does come with a deck off the kitchen. And you can enjoy your barbecue in your own private space semi private depending on where you are your next door neighbor might be twenty feet away. You might be able to look right onto yours. But i can again speak from experience. It's usually not the case that everybody's out at the same time prices over the last four years nine units have sold and it's three units twenty seventeen three sold in twenty eighteen none sold in two thousand nineteen but then again this year three more sold and the prices ranged from three hundred and forty seven thousand. Four one with an unfinished basement to three hundred. Sixty two thousand with a fully finish basement. And i believe the highest in their has just barely touched four hundred thousand dollars. That's one of the big two thousand square foot units so these are really good value for the money. They're fairly decently built their large spacious. They all i believe they all have three bedrooms two and a half baths plus whatever. There is in the basement so they have a full on sweet A half bath on the main floor. These are of course to store units right now. There are none available in this complex. But if you are looking to buy or sell in this complex or anywhere else in winnipeg.

If you are a homeowner orally somebody who has to pay their own bills water hydro end is a couple of things on how to make your appliances work harder and more efficiently for washing machine. It's advised that you don't wash half loads because to half loads actually take more water in more energy than one full load as well as set the setting as cold water as possible because every drop of hot water has to first through. The water. Tend to be heated. That's extra cost for stoves instead of stove. If you can use a microwave. It uses one quarter of the power if you don't like microwaves and some people are against it. Try getting toaster Because it's a using a lot less energy a lot less heat for a smaller space or get one of those ninja foodi. I just got one. They're they're absolutely awesome. I'm using it for everything. Air fry french fries and chicken breasts in a matter of minutes and it. It's really good. It is as good as they advertise. Fridges set your fridge. As as low as possible.

"Welcome listeners today. We're going to talk about the latest winnipeg state market. We'll touch on seven reasons. Why home buyers should continue their home search even in winter and give you some solid money. Saving tips for homeowners. All in the next fifteen minutes on winnipeg's podcast. You're listening to the bono's real estate podcast tips and advice for home buyers sellers and owners with award winning remax agent bo kaufman. So if you've been listening to this podcast for a while you know that the first episode of each month is when we give you. The market's doubts for winnipeg's housing market. How many listings are there. How many houses have sold over the last month. What's the immediate future. Look like are we in a buyer's market or seller's market that kind of stuff. After that i'm gonna give you some money. Saving tips for homeowners. But first let's talk about some reasons. Why buyers might wanna keep looking for houses even in the winter yes. Winter is coming and with a normal change in the real estate market. I'll give you an example last year. Twenty nineteen may and june in that two month period. We sold one thousand five hundred and forty four houses in winnipeg seven months later in winter. That's december january. We sold a combined. Five hundred sixty four houses. That is a sixty three percent drop which is totally attributable to the changing seasons. It's colder weather. It's not as comfortable to go out. Look at houses. You get home from work and it's already dark who feels like looking at houses in these conditions on top of that. It's the holiday season new year's winter. Vacations You know what that's per a search on hold and started getting the spring but that's exactly one of the great reasons you should keep looking even in the winter. I'm reminded of a quote by british rabbi and philosophers. Jonathan sachs who said if everyone else is selling by saying is that do what everybody else is not doing so you can adjust that saying by going if everyone else stops buying you go ahead and buy in my latest post arguments. Seven compelling reasons by homebuyers should keep looking through the winter. You can find that. By simply going to bono's dot homes slash stories. You can also catch a link in the show notes and it's perfectly formatted for mobile reading throughout the episode. You're going to hear me. Mentioned that links are available in the show notes. What our show notes. And where are they very simple. Go to bono's dot homes slash podcast. That is the website for this podcast. This episode in particular sits at bono's dot homes slash one four three and. Now let's take a look at the winnipeg real estate market as it is at the very beginning of december twenty twenty so remember that this is a december first when we're talking about sales records. We're talking about what we sold. During the month of november previous year at this time period so During the month of november twenty nineteen we sold a total of three hundred fifty one houses. Compare that to six hundred thirty three this year so sales again once again our way up compared to twenty nineteen most expensive house this month. So for one point seven million in headingley and in fact during the month of november we sold ten houses at a million dollars or more. So let's go into in a little bit more detail again. December i twenty twenty last year. At this time we had fourteen hundred and twenty houses available this month. We have seven hundred fifty. Four virtually has many houses on the market as there was last year but sales are almost twice as much. So you can see. This is not a sustainable situation buyers far outpaced the listings. Seven hundred and fifty four is down a little bit from the previous month yet when we had nine hundred fifty five houses breaking it down across price ranges entry level houses under two hundred fifty thousand last year. We had four hundred ten district. We've got two hundred twenty seven eight range to fifty to five hundred thousand last year. We had nearly seven hundred on the market right now. We have three hundred six and luxury homes. Three hundred fifty one last year december first today. Two hundred twenty. One incidentally starting in january twenty twenty one. I'll be doing something a little different. I will be giving a separate luxury housing market report. That's all houses over. Five hundred thousand in manitoba got the luxury home marketing institute classifies anything over five hundred thousand as a luxury home. So i'll be delving a little deeper into the details in this price range. Okay now let's take a closer look at the sold numbers during the month of november entry level. Last year we sold one hundred five this year. Hundred and forty two mid range prowse's last year. During the month of november. We sold two hundred eight this year. Three hundred and fourteen and even luxury homes last year result. Thirty eight this month. The during november we sold seventy seven. That's basically twice as many as year. Same time so we can see that the number of available listings are about half and sales are about double. How do we put that on paper. Does it look in graph form. That's when we come up with a to called days of inventory. This basically explains it. There are no more listings. Come into market today at the current pace of sale. How long would it take us to sell everything. That's out there here. The lower the number the hotter the market entry level houses under two hundred fifty thousand last year. It would have taken us one hundred seventeen days to sell everything that's out there. This month is just forty. Eight days super hot. But it's even hotter in the mid range prices two hundred and fifty to five hundred thousand dollars. There was a house by the way last week. A twelve hundred foot bungalow in river heights listed at four hundred was four hundred thirty thousand sold for five hundred thousand dollars. This is a seventy year old house. It's been redone done up to the nines. Look really great but a half million dollar price tag so in that price range. Last year we had one hundred days of inventory this month. Twenty nine so in other words if nobody else listed their house in that price range going forward it wouldn't even take us a month to run out of everything that's out there and now luxury homes there too much hotter market than normal last year. Two hundred seventy seven days to sell everything. That's the level of inventory this month eighty six days. That's probably the hottest that i've seen it. Not price range now. the one step that seems to be bucking the trend a little bit Good news is how many new listings are coming to market. last year. During the month of november we had five hundred ninety eight houses being listed in november this year. That number is six hundred sixty two so at least there is a few more listings. We need a lot more to satisfy the buyer needs. That are out there in a normal year. I might have advised people in the past if you wanna sell your house. Wait a couple of months. Wicketless free-market King when it comes to selling winnipeg but as you can see. This is not a normal. You're listening to our way down. Sales are way up so even now even in december still a good time to list your house if you look to sell gimme a shout and let's take a look at what the market is doing in your specific neighborhood your specific price range because this report is all good but it is of the entire market of of winnipeg and is upset.

"And welcome to a new section this podcast. It's money saving tips for homeowners. And those who wanna be. I don't know why. I didn't think about this topic before to fit central naturally into this podcast. So here we are gonna come up with a catchy name for this and i'm open to ideas today. I want to talk about saving money on water. Bills and nineteen ninety nine study by the american waterworks association research foundation. 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. I i don't know what it's like in your city but here in winnipeg our sewer bill is directly tied to water consumption. So if you save a buck on water you'll ask you're going to save a corresponding amount on the sewer bill as well so using the above tips you can actually save hundreds of dollars on your water bill.

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.

"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..
