The Ultimate Guide to Downsizing in Toronto

"Good evening. Paul here real estate podcast. Show dot com. This is a very very special report. That i wanted to make sure was right out there for all of you to listen to because it has been by far the most requested information that i could provide over the last few weeks. So i've got a feeling there's a lot of you out there who need to know how to make the safest in smartest downsizing decisions in twenty twenty one. The people that i'm meeting over the last two weeks range. Everywhere from homes in the danforth area to the beach to forest hill to rosedale a lot of you in rosedale are listening to My show and i really wanna make sure you're paying attention so rosedale. People bridle path people. A lot of you are sitting on some incredible properties that you no longer need and you understand that with the most amount of three million dollar plus sales in the history of toronto last year. There's an audience for your types of properties that you bought for one or two million dollars so now You're looking to some of your looking to down size and not necessarily in quality. You just wanna have your mansion squeezed into a three bedroom Five-star condo which i happen to have for sale at this time. So i know a lot of you are being gravitated towards these type of places. And i am going to need so many more so those of you with luxury. Condos and luxury lofts Do not pass go. Do not do anything until you reach out to me at real estate. Podcast show dot com. Because i've got these downsizing buyers who are in this position where they are going to be coming out with a lot of cash because a lot of these people do not have mortgages and they're going to be in a position to buy property and if you've never had a if you've ever sold a property ever dealt with a cash buyer and i'm talking about a cash buyer in a very strong position It's a whole different ballgame so rather than let's say you're selling your one point two million dollar condo and you're crossing your fingers closing day and i and i say that way because you know that the person probably may qualify for a million and they've got to find two hundred thousand. It's far better. I've got a different technique. That i use so it's far better to have the person with the one point. Five to two million affordability looking at your one point. Two million dollar condo loft if your place looks good enough. It will appeal to the people on the upper scale of that qualification versus the people on the other side of the qualification is just part of how it works. It doesn't mean that there isn't properties for everybody in every price rich. But i really wanna make sure that you are selling smart Most importantly safely. And i've actually said this to many people than i kind of get this look from people when they say this is safety is greater than location right now. So safety in your move to me is more important than location because for me and if you disagree. that's fine. Were allowed to do that but for me. Health is always going to come before wealth without a healthy mind. Body spirit soul. You can't enjoy the wealth. Whatever it is that you have in anybody that's listening. I don't care whether you have one hundred dollars in the bank or a million dollars in the bank. If you're not living the best life you can and and giving back and helping other people out and not hurting other people not not talking anybody down. Not treating the gardner differently than you would your spouse like any of that kind of people. I instantly repel i. I don't get along with any of you. That are like that. But those of you who are treating others kindly taking care of others donating food banks helping out small businesses. You were on the same page. I already know so. Thank

Mustang Mach-E First Drive Review - Ford's All-New New Electric Crossover

"The car driving today is unique for four if their ever history fully electric battery electric vehicle designed from the ground up to be electric unlike some other early eighties like the nissan leaf. You know where. They decided to go for efficiency. Make it as a compact car for decided to go for the heart of the market. They what they really did was. They learned from tesla looked at. You know what tesla was doing. And how tesla was succeeding. That was making cars. Were cool looking. At cool technology had good performance And offer great range and ford decided to start with a compact midsize. upper compact. You know mid size crossover market is today. That's what people wanna buy It's getting close to suv's and crossovers are about forty percent of the us car market now and so the originally conceived this vehicle announced early twenty seventeen as a more conventional tross over. It was basically you know it was going to be front wheel drive. More something like Electric version of the escape Which is very popular compact. Crossover for four but late. Two thousand seventeen. They decided to completely change direction. They realized that that was not a car that was going to get people excited to buy an ev from ford. And so what they did instead was. They said okay. What's our what's our icon. What what is the vehicle that really gets people excited and within ford. The mustang is considered the heart and soul of the brand. It's by no means the best selling car but is the car they build that is representative of so many things for fun to drive. You know the racing history. Ford ford's racing. History goes back to before there was a ford motor company. Henry ford won the money that he used to start ford motor company by winning a race winning the vanderbilt cup and so the The they decided to use mustang as the inspiration for this car and and the end You know what they came up with was a crossover that has mustang design cues but they also knew that if they were gonna put the mustang badge on it that they needed to make it something that would fail. Drive a mustang. It's obviously a car. That's much taller than a traditional mustang. But because it's electric. That has the battery in the floor underneath the floor. That's still gives it a relatively low center of gravity. And they put a lot of the people who've worked on mustang over the years on this program and to try to infuse it with as much mustang dna performance dna and And they territory an attitude as they could and so they came up with something that has echoes of mustang but is also very practical car. For the first time ever you know traditionally mustangs the backseat and the mustang is not a place where you where you wanna be if you're an adult. It's fine for kids but know it's always been a two plus two this is a real five-seater got four doors. Got a hatchback big big cargo area in the back. And it's something that can be used as a family car but it also has a lot of that mustang. feel but it's also extremely modern. So you got things like the fifteen and a half inch touchscreen display in the center here with their sink for a system on it. They designed a completely new user interface for this car and this is going to be spreading out to two other vehicles as well. Unlike tesla Four as ford decided that you're not going to have everything in this touchscreen interface here They did retain a an instrument. Cluster display up in the front here directly in of the driver. Which i think is where it belongs. Yes that gives you information like your speed. Your driver systems systems like dab cruise control and lane keeping assist your range information. All that is right in front of you in the in the user interface here it's designed to be basically three areas three zones of this. You have the main zone up top here which is whatever the current application that you're using right now. It's navigation for dr route but You've also got these cards down here in this lower in this middle section here which represent the other applications that you've used most recently so if you go to things like you know right now there's an iphone connected to this which is being used as the phone is a key system and that brought up the the apple carplay interface and you can see that when it carplay interface came up navigation. Went down here into the most recently used slot in the in the cart section. So i can quickly get back to toggle back and forth. I can go to the ford pass out for charging. If i want to go to tap that and you see the Carplay and the navigation ford passer still down here instantly accessible so the system learns based on your behavioral based on what you're doing and so i'm going to go back here was also At the top here have Your your picture. You can have profiles from multiple drivers in here. Each driver can have Is tied to their own kifah program it to the fourth pass app on your phone use. Use the phone as your key with bluetooth belly when you tap on that it shows you all the apps that are available to the nice thing that they've done with his user interfaces. They've kept everything close to the surface close to the top so you're not drilling down through multiple layers of display multiple layers of interface. To get to the things that you want to use. It's all up close so right now. there's three three drive modes that are available right now in whisper mode which is the most economical mode the quietest mode the engage mode is the default mode. That's kind of a nice balance between the better better efficiency but also more performance and then unbridled is the the most performance oriented mode and what changes in between each of those modes. Is you get changes in the searing. Feel the amount of steering effort and you know for an suv. This thing has excellent steering response during feel to changing the drive modes also changes the accelerator pedal response so in whisper mode. It gives you a little bit slower response when you tip into the accelerator pedal A little smoother. Calmer more comfortable feel to it But then when you go through engage and finally to unbridled each time it gets a little more aggressive both with the the tip in response so that you know when you when you hit the accelerator pedal. It'll respond quicker jump off line faster in unbridled than it does in either engage or whisper but it also does the same in reverse for regenerative braking so in whisper mode you get more aggressive region or rather than Br bridled mode. You get more aggressive regenerative braking than you do in whisper mode or engage mode and you also have the option here separately for one pedal driving And you can set that and it'll stay remember what your settings were So it always goes back to whatever your last settings were so one pedal driving is great especially if your stop and go traffic in city traffic or On a on a on a highway even in stop and go traffic jam because it will bring the car to a complete stop when you lift off the accelerator. So i have not touched the brakes and the car coming to a complete stop here and then accelerating nice. Quick celebration puts you back seat. It's not as fast right now. As the tesla performance moats. But this also isn't the highest performance version. That's that's gonna be the. Gt the machi. Gt comes out in the summer. Twenty twenty one will be the version that goes up against the likes of tesla model y performance with it's insane mode the gt's going to accelerate zero to sixty in the in the mid three second range. Which will put it comparable to the shelby. Gt five hundred. Which has the giant supercharged v. Eight engine when i drove the machi earlier this afternoon on the auto cross course that one we drove was The rear wheel drive version. And what was interesting about it. Was you know they. They really tuned the suspension field. To give it more of that mustang. Feel so we get some off throttle oversteer. Can you can control the attitude of the car really well with the accelerator pedal the ride quality and this despite the performance capability is actually quite good. It's very comfortable but it's still got really good body control one other aspect does change when you change the drive. Moans is the sound there's the unbridled gives you a little bit more aggressive sound to engage. It's a little bit more toned down and whispered as you would expect. it's very quiet

All of this, our culture idolizes the concept of agency justifying almost anything by the capacity to act according to One's granted wishes all of our postmodern moral claims about sexuality hinge on agency.

"British archaeologists are hailing the discovery of a bridle that was last put on a horse. 3000 years of bronze age bridle was found by an amateur with a metal detector near England's border with Scotland. It's quite astonishing. I've never seen anything quite like it, Jerry dear Matthew Knight is because the bronze and leather bridal hadn't been disturbed. We can see Our horse harness was assembled by tracing 3000 year old remains of leather straps, very ornately decorated on DH Inter quickly made and the man who found it.

"Read them this was a few things that have been to up to what's come into the brexit campaign the us election and these disturbing depths of youtube is despite multiple suspicions ultimately impossible to tell who is doing what or what their motives intentions are watching endlessly streaming videos scrolling through wolves of status updates tweets is futile to attempt to discern between what's mickley generated nonsense or carefully crafted fake news for generating at dollars what's paranoid fiction state action propaganda or spam what's deliberate misinformation or wellmeaning fact check this confusion certainly serves the manipulations of kremlin spooks and child abuses alike but it's also broader and deeper than the concerns of any one group it's how the world actually is nobody decided that this is how the world should evolve nobody wanted this new dark age but we built it anyway a now we're going to have to live in it so let's cut to the chase all we in new doll cage are we heading to one i think so because i've written this book but there's a good conversation to be have about about what that actually constitutes and i don't for me that's not entirely settled either actually use this figure over new dark age to talk about several different things in the book i use it talk about the state of knowing of this inability to know who's doing what which that chapter on courtesy that starts youtube stuff focuses on but also for example us talk about our ability to predict the future in very concrete ways so i talk a lot about the history of meteorology and computation the way in which we yeah that's one example of this kind of code affiliation of the world is data so that we can predict it one of the things that is happening right now and is kind of scientifically studying fascinating is our ability to predict the future in terms of the weather is starting to fail as a result of specific news relative climate we're actually going to be able to see less for into the future but you actually see this happening across the scientific disciplines course a whole whole range of things and so it's a it's in outlining those problems the new cages saying that actually we need to think of ways to work in the world whether this prediction and control no longer works is it a warning is a call to action is it just an examination for me it's thinking through these things under naming of them which feels really crucial i think a lot of it was a you know writing the book came out of a frustration of how actually a lot of this is not well stated is not simply claimed we point always the kind of side issues or the smaller issues we youtube stuff to point at youtube and google say that evil than actually talking about the deep systemic structural problems that have created this situation and try to unpick them i just think are thinking on this stuff is so incredibly limited this an attempt on my part to of state some of the problems really really clearly so that we can actually have a proper discussion about them we live in a world where technological optimists is almost an ideology at this point how do you address critics from that strand of thinking who go that you know these these problems that you've outlined a real but fundamentally tech is good and great and has had strong positive influences on well everything i would hand the book in which i detail many many ways in which that's not true but the problem is that i'm not a i'm not too logical pessimists per se either and i don't think i think the idea of technological optimist is meaningless as well because the augument i make is that ten elegies is always an firstly a tool and the question is.

"To the new static of saying like okay this the shiny weird pixellated digital stuff on the surface is fascinating an amazing and use it to draw people in but then to understand how that stuff is generated where it comes from the kind of pressures that are shaping that the interests that are shaping that the of course this to exist that's what i find to be endlessly fascinating so to use the videos as a way of starting to unpack the ways in which a huge amount of the stuff around us is created by autonomous systems by these directionless systems by systems which nobody has set in motion and i think that's the bit really capture people as well not just the the terrifying nature some of this stuff but the like we have no idea who made it or even kind of really how it came into being and that's why i think it really hooks in some of the other themes of the book for those who didn't read it or who may have read it and not realize that was you writing can you give a brief summary of what you yes i just found all these deeply weird videos on youtube the surface the ones that draw attention the ones violence so you have kind of like popular children's cartoons getting killed and tortured verse horrible things happening to them but then we'll gets weird is some of that could be dismissed as trolling almost always kind of someone deliberately trying to do nasty things to kids but because the system is so huge because youtube has millions of billions of you as at least views on all of evidence because also you can get paid for getting people to watch over the years people biting bits of software or creating these videos in order to get advertising revenue and something happens something deeply strange in this interface between small children watching those videos youtube algorithms trying to provide them with content and people somewhere else trying to make stuff that works for those over them and as this kind of his missing bits of human oversight in the middle that produces deeply strange completely nonsensical outcomes and so beyond violent videos of that just don't make sense to hugh humans that have this feeling of the kind of deep uncanny of some kind of machine not intelligence even kind of ficials stupidity but something other breaking through your essay and the subsequent media reaction prompted some some changes from youtube and other platform holders tend to what did you think about the responses to it i still think those those responses like fundamentally misunderstand the problem which is one of scale and one of one that on that level is unsolvable but also misunderstand their an agency you know the fundamental issue is that youtube in another systems that went into these kind of issues thinks that they can kind of engine ear themselves out of the problem that you know by binding more rules to the system or more defenses to also be able to mitigate this in some particular i don't think that's possible within within the system alone right because operates inside a huge political stack essentially kind of different much logic action of politics infrastructures and so it kind of has to account for the rest of society when it's going to do so it's not just google to fix the main thing you'd fix instantly is better childcare so the youtube isn't functioning as as a choke aff for lots of small children how did that ential fury feedback entire new dark ages a whole well it kind of the end of the process really i think you know what had happened is that by thinking through some of the themes in the book i kind of built myself lens with which to understand this particular problem and also particularly to understand mostly our inability to to see and understand how this situation could come about because you know the one of the central themes of the book is this thing which i call computational thinking which is this belief that the entire world can be treated and viewed as data and summarized as such and then kind of processed and it's a view that really struggles with strange unexpected outcomes because it doesn't doesn't have doesn't have room for them so yeah in looking at this i kind of saw absolutely cost on example of that happening we've got a positive from the end of that chapter the currency chapter which i'd like to.

"Say the one horse that i just don't want any part of i acknowledged he could win this race is on bridled mo i don't think she wants the distance there's a reason that they have campaigned or at those middle distances even one turn race is dominantly throughout her career because i shouldn't say predominantly she's going to the number of times but i just feel like she's better at those chore sort of shorter distances and if they thought that she could go this sort of distance they would have tried it at some other point in the career i don't want him bridled mo in here mo potiskum i've always been a fan of hers but at the end of the day she's she's no great shakes she's three of nineteen lifetime always thought distance would be her friend as well but she just kind of grinder and again at a middling price she doesn't really do anything for me in a race like this a horse that i also always liked and i wonder if she's just finally coming into her own he's going to be my pick in this spot that's the number one therese's e therese's egos out for anti ghada junior we're going to go back and look at the stretcher onto the obey most recently this is the local prep for the delaware handicap i loved everything she did she rallied into slow fractions and she drew away at the end i like the fact that it looks like she had plenty of gas left in the tank on the gallup out into me again if you don't if you're not convinced that a late is going to be ready to go and regardless you'd probably not gonna be a great in this instance depending on what do you think of chances if you don't think on bridled mocking get the distance if you don't think mo potiskum is good enough why not take a shot with a horse that the distance looks like it's going to work looks like she's on an upward trajectory as far as ability is concerned and she's going to be a square number i believe she's ten to one on the morning line perhaps the scratch feral she comes down a little bit but you're going to get at least seven or eight to one i would imagine in a race like this if not more than that so to me therese's e she is the pick and basically the bet for me so i'll play some sort of a win way jurong as well then i'll probably i guess they probably got to take a look and see what the exact problem was look like i may back her up within a late therese's eeexactly simply because i do think theresa's he's going to appreciate the distance but it really boils down to what version of a lady you're going to get a late her best race simply better than everyone else's in this group the big fades for me in this spot i suppose would be on bridled mo and mopeds and but for me it's a one six exact exacto and the ninth race at delaware on saturday afternoon when go with theresa z to get the job done the ten for a long delaware handicap race prior to the delaware handicap saturday the stakes for three year olds going mile and an eighth on the turf course there's already been a defection in this spot the number eight blame the rider he goes indiana derby on saturday night for doug o'neill on the main track so you take out a pace factor in a race like this this race to me boils down to do you want the horses that look like they are on sort of an upward trajectory or do you want the horse really is one that has been proven against better horses and has been keeping better company that horse i'm talking about is the number five on tame domain for graham motion now as a two year old he looked like he could turn into anything and his final races it to your old was very very impressive we're in take a look at that run right now keep an eye out for those west point thoroughbreds silks on the far outside here's the stretch of last year's breeder's cup juvenile turf hoped about eight.

"Thank you for coming and giving us that talk so it's interesting when you think about the film's the robotic overlords take over it's all a bit more glamorous than what you're describing but i wanted to you know in those films you have like the resistance mounting where is there a resistance mounting towards this stuff do you see any kind of positive signs shoots the physicians i don't know about kind of resistance because i think this stuff is super long term i think is baked into culture and really kind of beep ways a friend of mine elena so tour says any technological problems of sufficient scale and scope political problems first of all right so all of these things we working to address within this are not going to be addressed just by kind of building the technology better but actually by changing the society that's kind of producing these technologies so no right now i think we've got a hell of a long way to go but as i said i think by unpacking them by explaining them by talking about them super honestly we can actually start to at least begin that process and so when you talk about legibility and digital literacy like i find it difficult to imagine that we need to place the burden of digital literacy on uses themselves whose responsibility is education in this in this new world again i think this responsibility is kind to all of us right that everything we do everything we build everything we make needs to be made in a kind of a consensual discussion with everyone who's avoiding right the we're not building systems that are intended to like trick or kind of surprise people into doing the right thing but the actually is involved in every step in educating them because each of these systems is educational that's what i'm kind of hopeful about about even this really grim stuff is that if you can take it and look at it properly it's actually self is a piece of education that allows you to start seeing how complex systems come together and work and maybe be able to apply that knowledge elsewhere in the world chains it's such an important discussion on many people here really opened unprepared to have it so thanks for starting off our morning thanks very much for more ted talks to ted dot com hey it's guy rise here next time on the ted radio hour from npr a lot of scientists are saying our planet has moved into a new geological epoch the anthropic scene there has never been a species that has been able to affect the planet so broadly and so deeply as humans have the age of the anthropic and what it means for all the creatures on earth that sex time on the ted radio hour from npr subscribe or listen to the ted radio hour wherever you get your podcasts

"But the other thing the thing that really gets to me about this this is that i'm not sure we even really understand how we got to this point right we've taken all of this influence all of these things and mondays them together in a way that no one really intended and yet this is also the way that we're building the entire world we're taking all of this data a lot of bad data a lot of historical data full of prejudice full of full of all of our kind of worst impulses of history and we're building into huge data sets and we're automating it and we're munching it together into things like credit reports into insurance premiums into things like predictive policing systems right into sentencing guidelines this is the way we're actually constructing the world today out of this data and i don't know what's worse that we built a system that seems to be entirely optimized for the absolute worst aspects of human behavior or that we seem to done it by accident right without even realizing that we would doing it because we didn't really understand the systems that we were building and we didn't really understand how to do anything differently with it there's a couple of things i think that really seems to be driving this most fully on youtube and the first of those advertising right which is the kind of monetization of attention without any real other variables at work any care for the people who are actually developing this content the centralization of the power the separation of those things and i think how you feel about the user advertising kind of support stuff the sites have grown men in diapers rolling around in the sand in the hope that an algorithm that they don't really understand we'll give the money for it suggests that this probably isn't the thing that we should be basing our society and coach upon and the way in which we should be funding and the other thing that's kind of major driver of this is automation which has the deployment of all this technology as soon as that arrived without any kind of oversight and then once out there kind of throwing up our hands and going hey it's not us it's the technology we're not involved in it that's not really good enough because this stuff isn't just mickley governed it's also with mickley policed when youtube i started to pay attention to this the first thing they said they do about it was that they deploy better machine learning to moderate the content well machine learning if you as any expert in it will tell you is basically what we started to cool software that we don't really understand how it works and and i think we have enough of that ready right we shouldn't be leaving the stuff up to a i to decide what's appropriate or not because we know what happens it will start censoring other things will start censoring quick on ten til starts censoring legitimate public speech what's allowed in these discourses shouldn't be something that's left up to unaccountable systems it's part of a discussion all of us should be having but i live reminder that the alternative isn't very pleasant either youtube also announced recently that they're going to release a version of their kids up that would be entirely moderated by humans facebook dr bugs had much the same thing the congress when pressed about how they were going to moderate their stuff he said they'd have humans doing and what are really means is that instead of having toddlers being the first person to see the stuff you're going to have underpaid precarious contract workers without proper mental health support being damaged by as well and i think we can do quite a lot better than that.
