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

Thirty-two NFL Awards

"Every week on this podcast given out. Nfl awards app. The week is over. This could be a bit ambitious but thirty two teams thirty two awards. Let's go we're gonna call this one the best six and ten team of all time award but the washington football team stepped up so now he renamed it already way to change the word on the fly in the moment with breaking news the best seven and nine team of all time award the washington football team now can we say that definitively it may be too early to say last year tampa atlanta both went seventy nine. Those teams didn't even make the playoffs so the early lean is that washington could be the great one of all time. But we don't know yet. Speaking of that game. The clockwork orange award goes to the new york giants because they had to watch i at one point. This season banned myself from nfc east games. I said i wouldn't watch any until the teams are over five hundred. I watch step drop sixty two instead of being super locked into washington philadelphia. And i don't feel like i miss much. I know there's a lot of controversy would get that. Maybe a little bit later but imagine having your eyeballs taped open like clockwork orange and being a member of the giants having to watch that game. Nate sub-field now. Look we can sit here and be upset about it but you could have gone seven nine and got into the playoffs. So how sorry. Can you really feel for the giants the skeletons on the zahara award. Yes some of these awards. We referenced. his some won't get boy when you do get a weird one. You're gonna go man. I get that all right. That award goes to the. Las vegas raiders. Because at the beginning it looked promising. Nice little boat trip trade. Some spices await were crashing into rocks. Not a big deal here. Some locals gathering on the beach here to help nope now. We're marching to our own death in africa so it was very pro gruden. Hey maybe this gruden guy knows what he's doing and then you're like wait. Does this actually suck again. The drought continues. The raiders have not won a playoff game. Since two thousand to the notre dame award that goes to the green bay packers great record high green. Bay's really good. They're thirteen three though the one seat but nobody outside of their own fan base is rooting for this team. Not only because of the history of hatred. Although i imagine there's way more anti notre dame stuff out there than it is anti green bay but no one trusts you. Yes you're thirteen and three but that's three. Nfc conference championship game losses in the six seasons. A couple down years. They've turned this thing around. They are the one seed. But everybody's kind of overt already before. It's even started the parent's weekend award that goes to the new orleans saints. You guys know the deal parents weekend. There's a dad he wants to stay out with you guys. And he's older he's a little beat up and you're like i don't know like we're going to go out. We can't say no. We respect him too much. It doesn't look great. Doesn't make a ton of sense on paper there's some bad stats in there. But you have to let them do it. You have to let them try and the thing is is you and your buddies like there's no way does this is going to end well. The iceman award that goes to the dallas cowboys man and dangerous. What is with this jolt. A don't let us get hot. This is insanity when this was part of the story lines throughout the cowboys broadcast. Yes you on three in a row. Cincinnati san francisco and philadelphia yay. Then you lost the giants at home. You came in eleventh in the nfc but if you were to get in look out. This is now. It's our time you were eleventh in your own conference dangerous. You had sixteen games to prove that you're only dangerous to your fan. Base is or perhaps the understanding of what the word danger beans the g. league award san francisco forty niners. They had twenty eight players. At one point on i r or another injury cova list which was most in the league. They use the most. I are slots. They lost the most games to injury in the nfl. And even with losing record my coach. kyle shanahan. i can't believe how competitive they were. All season law the dabble award. That goes to kirk cousins in the vikings bike. He's gonna win. Nah no one really cares are one in five star people already over this team so their disappointing season was so disappointing so early that it was just all of a sudden just completely off the radar even though they turn some things around there a bit in the middle of the season with dalvin cook but watching cousins dance reminded me of daboh announcing his tiktok account hickory vickery dot mouse ran up the clock coast. Sweeney's got that drill and now he's on tiktok.

How to Deliver a 7-Star Experience for Clients

"So just to give people like a story so for me. Whenever i'm at the four seasons the thing i love about it is i can take out my phone and order shifts guacamole and all this stuff and it just shows up to the room. I don't need to interact with anybody. Wanna talk to anybody. The food just appears right and sometimes go above and beyond they'll give me like a fruit basket the put some wine and all that cool stuff right. That's going a little above and beyond mr sue. Can i help you with this. Just a little bit right. Like not calling me. Neil or not. Eric reid is mr sue and say that feels like so professional and everything looks really nice tidy. Let's talk about seven star experience. Because i got this concept from airbnb and you know seven star. We're talking about just to give you an example. Let's say neil stays at a hotel and neil. Who's like your favorite band or was your favorite brand Experienced story let's do that. Let's do that. I can't so. I used to live at the mandarin oriental and las vegas There for many many years. I need someone who also lived there find from vegas to los angeles in los angeles during international when they arrived in los angeles. They already have their connection flight. They forgot their passports. Passport was in vegas so they call the cons. Here's the concierge. Had one of the door. People go into their place get their pastor. They told them where it was literally hopped on a plane delivered to him in lax. Straight up games like even crazier okay. So seven star or even nine star would be like. Let's say your favourite dj in your room. Mike spinning or something like that. They roll out the red carpet. Your favorite foods waiting right there. Maybe it's imported from europe or something. They just fluid in right. That is seven star. But i think if you want to think about how this five seven nine star experience you have to outline what three stars five stars looks like and you have to think about okay. How do i go above and beyond to make it a seven. How do i have to go above and beyond for the next one right. And that's the key. Eric just mentioned you had to go above and beyond. I remember talking to a client one time and they hurt us to grow their s traffic. When we're doing a good job vessel. Traffic was growing not as fast as one. But it never as fast as i want and as we're growing at on the phone with founder. Hey i don't want overstep my boundaries. But you know my team can cover the seo stuff separately after this call and they will. And i'm like. I will not do something different on this call. That just really ran on like just hear me out. And let's just go along with it and tell me what happens after thirty days in there like okay so i ended up breaking out on the phone everything that was wrong with their website when it came to conversion rate optimization standpoint and have contract. I'm like look you're trying to get resolved to your start your shot for cash. Who cares what's in your contract. I'm just gonna tell you right now. High-protein going implement this six things that are going to boost your conversion Really want you to implement the minority. And i went down through that list. They did and then within a month and a half to two months because it took him a little bit longer to get it out their conversion rate went up a bit more than thirty percent at that point business much more profitable. There were happy as your trackable much more profitable and they're like thank you. You'd have to like what we owe you. Nothing unlike your businesses wasn't gonna grow as you want it because it was really messed up on. The conversion asks a wanted to fix that i and they were happy and to me that's going above and beyond where i didn't have to. Yeah and those of you that might be wondering okay

It’s the same old story for North Carolina basketball in loss to the Wolfpack

"On sunday. We spent several minutes discussing a disappointing blueblood with the hall of fame coach kentucky led by john calipari today. We'll spend another few minutes on another disappointing blueblood with another hall of fame coach this time it's north carolina and roy williams the tar heels fell at nc state on tuesday. Seventy nine seventy six so now. Five and three. The other losses are texas in iowa best win over stanford ladder you and i both had north carolina projected as the third best team in the acc in the preseason. Are we still confident. Unc is a top three in the acc. No did i really have them third. I looked double checks man. it's not ideal right now. we both had it. We both had it. Virginia duke north carolina in that order. Well i didn't have carrots. So here's where. I differed in the preseason with some of the projections yours and and others. I did not have carolina ranked in the top twenty five portion of my one two three fifty seven. I i put carolina twenty eight. And i remember before like settling on an ultimate order like my first initial like. Let me throw everything at the wall. I think i'd carolina like thirty six or thirty seven and the reason was they were so poor last year. I mean historically bad. It was one of the five or six worst seasons in school history. Statistically that i was just. I wasn't totally sold on them. Going from fourteen and nineteen a season ago to being if your top. Three team in the acc You know that's probably a four seat at worst. And i wasn't all in on him there. I thought okay. Maybe they can get along the lines of a five or six seed and that was really what wound me wind up with me. Booting them up a little bit. But at this point you know. I watched the majority of that. Nc state game. I would argue. It wasn't even a three point game. Nc state truly beat them by six or seven points now five and three losses the losses all respectable so. It's an interesting situation with unc. Here lost texas in a really really good game championship. Which was obviously nashville. Then they lose at iowa but it wasn't that competitive ninety three eighty. Now they take the road loss against nc state. The win against kentucky and cbs sports classic has almost no value. The win over stanford is solid but otherwise charleston. Unlv north carolina central their next game at georgia tech a week from one. We're talking here. On december thirtieth so i think there is still the chance and with all due respect as always to leaky black here. And he's actually. I think he's. He's been good in spots but they're not as good as they should be. I still really love. The frontline is still think. This could be one of the courts in america but it should be noted fourteen thousand nine hundred last season. Now it's five three. And i'm not gonna guarantee you that this team is heading to the instability tournament and in the preseason. Unc got by on its jersey name. I don't know i. I was always a little hesitant there and some of that has come to the surface. This is clearly clearly not a top twenty five team right now. In north carolina as you mentioned the go fourteen and nineteen last season and the reason that i had them in the preseason top twenty five and one thought that they would have a really nice bounceback season because they in elite recruiting class featuring three five star freshman. The way they're supposed to go from fourteen and nineteen to really good is that three five-star freshmen are great. And they're all fine. I guess but none of them are playing like freshman of the year candidates like against nc state day. Ron sharpe had six points. Fourteen minutes walker kessler had three points and twelve minutes. Caleb love had eleven point four assists two turnovers in twenty eight minutes. Like if you're five star freshman aren't gonna perform like five star freshman consistently well. Then you're not going to go from from bad to to really good. You can go from bad to good from bad to respectable from bad to an ncaa tournament team. But you're not going to be elite unless you five star freshman perform at an elite level. They are not doing that right now.

How Great Sales Ethics Lead to Greater Profits Selling Ethically Joel Malkoff - burst 10

"They were educating them nowadays. It doesn't exist. You know the premise of mistrust. The salespeople as reached a point and now with the internet if you wanna buy something you have no desire to speak to salesperson. You look at the website you look at rankings. You decide yourself what product you want to buy. And it's only if the product is presented only. Do you have to speak to the salesperson to get a price quote or a better understanding of what's going on but in general really marketing advertising it percents products. Now it's no longer. The salesperson selling so that paradigm is shifting it becomes even more important to salesperson becomes a problem solver and to consult you i you know we. We've talked about bayton. Switch it used to be a bigger deal remember you know. It was a bigger deal years ago when they would advertise price for something and they would say oh. Gosh i'm allow right and then they would sell you something else right. But there's a new form of bait and switch. Now that i noticed like people will say i. You know they'll say. I have sold this company this company and this company this company all these things you know and i can get you the same thing as them and then when you actually talk to them right. What they're doing is they're selling you something completely different than what they're telling you that they're doing. I just had somebody who said i can get you. I can get you these high dollar coaching clients right and they started listening for me All these high these coaching clients that they quote unquote said that they got other coaches right so went to go question them further because i knew it was not real right and i said well let me put me in touch with them. Well all of a sudden they can't put me in touch with them right. Yes right. I said well let me talk to them and find out how they're you know how I can't do that with two bolts. Because you know that's the new bait and switch now is that we're seeing emails. We're seeing direct messages. That are telling people this is all wonderful things that we do but then we get there. It's not some wonderful. Yeah i mean. I had just yesterday. I went to join the seminar a summit meeting a lot. Good business leakers All over the emails free free free freight right you know. And then i go to sign up. And i can't click on free while they're trying to sell me a fifty dollar entrance fee right. So then i get access to these ten thousand dollars worth of papers and articles and it just kept scrolling pages and pages and pages and all it was forty seven dollars only forty seven dollars writing. What is that knowledge. And it was no place to click on free. So i actually had to bounce off it basically the same thing. It's it's amazing switch. They lured me in with the word free. But yet i couldn't click on it just didn't exist sent. You're right that that's completely all over the place to me just yesterday. My son got an email where somebody wanted. Small business wanted to get him a amazon thirty dollars gift certificate right if he did a five star ranking rating on their product. So he said that is an ethical. I said no. I said it could be ago if they said know his thirty dollars. Gift certificate rank in any way you wanna rank it right then. At least they were something to speak about. It could be a little bit of gray but it wasn't completely unethical It's all over. It's it's it's literally is happening everywhere. It's lowering its fade switch. It's it's the way it wasn't biblical times. It hasn't changed just vehicles different. So this is where. I'm paid thirty seven. You say something that. I think is absolutely brilliant. You say it's no longer. Let the buyer be where but let the seller beware. It is the seller's responsibility to be honest and transparent elaborate more on that. Yeah we kind of grew up with caviar into a latin term was. Let the buyer. Beware and you felt like you had to go. You had to know what was going on. It's not some salesperson. Was going to hurt you. So the selling ethically is builds. The ethical premise of the salesperson is the samsung versus responsibility to inform the buyer Through full disclosure through being honest through not slandering the competitor when the seller be wears than the buyer has the level trust and that said the improve the buy sell relationship. So that is the premise. The is about the book is about improving a cell's ability to be ethical s. Not saying a buyer has no responsibility. Nowadays people go into buy through amazon because so inexpensive but you might feel very comfortable going into a camera store and taking a salesperson. It's time to learn all the technical aspects with no intention of buying from that story. When i do that. I'm very upfront. Where i'm going into that store and i'm telling salesperson cameras store you know. I need to be relatively close to the price. I can buy it online. If your price can be relatively close and we'll pay you for your added provided service but mcintyre you thirty to forty percent more right so i'll bring it right up front so the The buyer also has to have concerned about the seller's time.

FTC sues to break up Facebook, sell off assets like Instagram and WhatsApp

"Let's talk a little more about this. Big lawsuits got all right. The us federal trade commission filed a lawsuit on wednesday allegedly that facebook illegally maintains quote. It's personal social networking monopoly though Excuse me through a years long course of competitive conduct. That's a direct quote. Evidence was gathered in cooperation with the attorneys general of forty six states. The district of columbia and guam specifically called out as anticompetitive practices or as those practices are the acquisition of instagram and whatsapp an api restrictions on software developers Ftc is asking the court to order facebook to sell off. What's app and instagram. Cheese prohibit anti-competitive conditions envelope burs and require notice and prior approval of future mergers and acquisitions similar lawsuit was filed by new york attorney. General lati- let Excuse me latifah james. I believe i said joined by the same states and territories. That is a hardcore lawsuit. Tom merritt gigantic. Yes it is i. Let's just say up front. The chances of them actually getting a court even if this went all the way to the supreme court to agree to make facebook divest itself of instagram. And what's up very low not impossible but it's low so you know. Don't don't get too excited if you if you want instagram and whatsapp to be spun out. It's doubtful that will happen What they'll probably is some kind of reparations. Kind of fine. Maybe a change in business practices. I imagine they could have a good chance of getting facebook to have to agree to the notice and approval of future mergers and acquisitions. That part does seem likely but it will be interesting to follow this case and see where it goes because it was. It's a long shot to get this and so a lot of people weren't sure if the ftc would even bring this kind of charge that they might go after a smaller remedy but they're basically accusing facebook of buying instagram to neutralize a direct threat in instagram and make it more difficult for other social networks to compete. Kind of the same thing with what's up. They they wanted to neutralize. Whatsapp is a threat to facebook and make it harder for other messaging apps to get in there that was gonna be real hard to to prove though because we have a lot of competitive messaging apps out there so it doesn't seem like they've really suppressed the the market for that and then the the i think where i think you have the most fertile ground to get a court to agree which is the restrictions they put on third party developers on on what they can and can't do not only on facebook but if they use the api for example. The ftc uses this in their press. Release in two thousand thirteen twitter launched vine which let users shooting share short video segments and in response facebook shutdown the api that would have allowed vine to access friends through facebook. That is an anticompetitive practice whether they're abusing their monopoly to do it or not. We'll be the question. The court will decide the big story and the kind of happen mid day today. We were all sort of scrambling around like okay. This this is actually a big story. You know a lot of people are like this is a really big deal because look the. Us is going to dismantle facebook. Instagram and whatsapp arguably being. You know the you know the the prized possessions facebook. Besides its own news feed itself and like you said tom. It's highly unlikely that that's going to happen. Is going to be tied up in court for another few years probably But does it set a standard for how facebook and any company that would dare to get his anywhere as big as facebook in the future to not be able to gobble up. you know. i don't know. What did they pay one billion for instagram back in the day when thirteen people working at instagram. Kind of thing because instagram was big and facebook has a history of replicating kinda cool trendy stuff that that works. I mean look at real on instagram right. Now it's tiktok competitors you know it's all it's all kind of the same thing just to see what sticks and has had a oftentimes not a lot of success. Buying the company works for facebook a lot better than trying to replicate some sort of cool feature that then people have to learn to use now. You could argue. That is why the big weather big targets on this because what's app and instagram are notably gigantic runaway successes than. They were already heading that way when they were acquired. And you could also argue that. Got him at a bargain basement price. But maybe that's why they're being targeted decide with facebook. And i'm not really doing that. But for devil. Devil's advocate reasons. I would say yeah. This is a huge target. They have billions of users on their main service and then these secondary products are huge for them and they would be standalone gigantic companies on their own. That we would talk about individually if there weren't already owned by them so it makes sense that they're the target but the idea of buying up your competition to limit their impact on your business and grow it out. Separately isn't new and they're not the only ones doing this but maybe they're doing it. The most successfully and the question isn't just as a monopoly. It's not enough to save face because of anomaly you have to say it is a monopoly and it abused its position as a monopoly to reduce competition. Sometimes of an -opoly is perfectly legal. It's not illegal in the united states and most countries to be a monopoly. It's usually illegal to cause harm because you are a monopoly. And that's where. I think they're gonna have a problem showing harm yes. There isn't another few. No flicker is not doing well. And when they bought instagram that sort of dominated the image market. But to your point. Sarah the reason they keep adding stories and then reels is instagram is trying to fend off competition from snapchat and tick tick tock so there is competition. There is competition pushing instagram to change. And i think facebook can demonstrate that. Yeah maybe maybe zuckerberg said something unwise in an email once but there is competition out there. Same what's up there's telegram and signal and we chat and and how many other messaging services out there so i think it's hard to show that they are reducing competition in the marketplaces for those two. That's why i'm less bullish on the idea of them winning over a court to make them get rid of them on the other hand the developers stuff like they essentially killed vine. And i think they're they might have a better chance of getting facebook on that one do you do you think the Slack is worth twenty. Seven instagram's just to put it in numbers slack. Yes this lack. Twenty seven billion dollars as opposed to a billion. That's what i'm saying. Everything's billions and billions of dollars now. Yeah five star wars. Anyway i would love for there to be some sort of okay. Let's say we go forward and maybe facebook is find which is likely And is it sort of said going forward. He can't just gobble up companies that That you deem as a future competitor mall and then make it your own and then you reap the reward. So what what do we get to is if you have this x. amount of users you can't buy a company that has x. amount of users that is on the up and up or it has to be for not too much of a certain price so that the company doesn't willingly to you there so many factors in play i i i do wonder how this goes. There are laws. These laws will be tested in court. Now which is you can't buy a thing when the only reason you're buying it is to put the competitor out of business. It you there has to be a valid business reason for buying it and i think facebook can show that i you know. I look back at the microsoft case where they wanted to break up microsoft. They never broke up microsoft. They just put in some remedies. And i think yeah. That's courts are very reluctant to break up a company. You have to really show that it caused harm. And i just don't see it there

As COVID-Safe Becomes Table Stakes In Hotels, Real Wellness Can Be Your USP

"A property. Covid safe is something that just about. Every hotel is focused on right now and rightly soy and a big part of that of course focuses on the cleanliness and the hygiene speaks which is great. Because it's something we should have probably been lot more focused on in the past anyway. But as i mentioned that's table stakes. That gets you into the game. It's not enough for you to be able to stand out. You need to take it a step further. And that's where. I genuinely believe in spoken about this a few times but i generally believe that real authentic wellness in a hotel is something that he's going to allow those hotels that have it to differentiate themselves it is potentially going to become a major us p. for these hotels now over the last probably five years or so there's been a number of hotels that have dabbled in this idea number of hotels that have created different wellness concepts most of them. Frankly haven't really been that great that i've seen the haven't really addressed. I guess the broader picture of wellness. They eat the bean sort of product late. And they've been a little bit gimmicky or they've been program lead and they've been fairly superficial now spoiler alert and a little bit of full disquiet not full disclosure. Actually pasha disclosure. Because i can't tell you all about it yet. Because i haven't actually launched but i have heard about a new concept that is coming online very very soon hopefully in the next few weeks or so i think they're gonna launch which i think as done a great job of marrying those two concept's partially product partially program and on a lot more comprehensive and holistic level than i think has been done before so that's a big saudi news. I'll let you know about that in a couple of weeks once these guys launch. But i do believe that there is an opportunity for hotels that do it right that do it authentically and genuinely that really capture the essence of wellness in a hotel room. And it's all the elements the air. It's the water. It's the materials it's the sound it's the light. It's the the heat all of those things in a room that make up a living spice plus the water of course in the bathroom. All of those things become become part of your wellness experience. If it's done right. And i actually think two thousand and twenty one and twenty two especially a probably going to be a bit of a boom time for these hotel. Wellness concept's if they don reid. I also think the consumer consumers now smart enough to know the ones that are doing it right and not so. I think those that have tried the gimmicky stuff in the past will probably be found out those that are genuine and authentic and comprehensive and holistic in what they put in place. I think you'll find that is going to be a massive. Us p. for pretty much every hotel not just the high end hotels but all hotels resorts city all hotel levels and brands probably more so in the higher end brand i guess the higher end bracket i mean sort of the full five star hotels but i do think it's a big opportunity. What are you reckon. A let me know in the comments below. Be really interested to hear your thoughts on what you've seen in the past way you think it's going and if you think like i do a real wellness concept inside a hotel not just in the spa but the whole hotel is actually a good idea and actually going to become a us pay. Let me

The Virtual Reptilian Cult

"On july fifteenth. Two thousand seventeen. The son had just begun to rise over the quiet town of cool ball township pennsylvania when a gunshot rang through the air. Operator's answered a disturbing call just moments later and heard the panicked voice of forty two year old barbara rogers she cried. My boyfriend had a gun. He told me to press the trigger. Oh my god he's dead. Police rushed to the scene there on the floor of the tan double wide trailer late thirty two year old. Stephen minot a forty five caliber gunshot wound in his forehead. Barbara rogers stood beside his lifeless body. The firearm nearby barbara immediately claimed that she was innocent stating that her and many. Oh were deeply in love barbara. Even used stevens last name though they were not legally married. Despite her protestations barbara was arrested and police began their investigation. But perhaps barbara's protests weren't as far fetched as police had assumed a cursory internet search revealed. That barbour stephen were active members of an online cult. Run by a woman named sharee schreiner. The detectives searched for answers would lead investigators down a dark path filled with coded messages alien lizards and vampires. Hi i'm greg paulson. And i'm vanessa. Richardson and this is cults. Park has original every tuesday. We look at occult practices their leader and their followers. You can find all episodes of cults and all other podcast originals. Free on spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts to stream. Cults for free on spotify just opened the app and type cults in the search bar at cast. Were grateful for you our listeners. You will allow us to do what we love. Let us know how we're doing reach out on facebook and instagram. At podcast and twitter at podcast network. And if you enjoy today's episode the best way to help us is to leave a five star review. Wherever you're listening it really does help. This is our first and only episode on sherry schreiner. The woman behind a virtual reptilian kalt will explore her troubled childhood as well as how schreiner used the internet to cultivate her following sherry. J. schreiner was born on december eleventh. Nineteen sixty five in cleveland. Ohio into a devout god fearing christian family. She attended private christian schools and went to church every sunday. Surrounded by discussions of jesus and religion. Schreiner never remembered a time when she wasn't thinking about discussing reading the bible while sherry was a very private person of the information that's known about our comes from her self published books in one titled bible codes revealed the coming. Ufo invasion sherry claimed that she was proclaiming. God's name by the age of two and she was reborn by the age of five however also at that time she developed horrific haunting night terrors which she described in vivid detail sherry wrote. A figure would stand at the foot of my bed and stare at me as i lay trying to sleep. Fear and sheer terror with grip every muscle and bone. I had it was at least seven feet tall dark and evil. I would shrivel under my blankets and pray for it to go away. I did not know what it was other than feeling it was some evil being straight from hell and i certainly did not know what it wanted. Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode please note. Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist. But she has done a lot of research for this show. thanks greg. The national sleep foundation explained that night terrors can have several causes including extreme tiredness lack of sleep or stress. It is quite possible that stress of her family's devout contributed to share his night terrors. As a child though. We don't know the specifics of the situation. Perhaps sheri's family put pressure on her to adhere to a specific code of conduct prescribed by their faith sheri's terrors continued to haunt her well into her adolescence as the years passed. She had a revelation. These visions were not some anonymous shadowy figures but evil demons sent by lucifer to kill her. She proclaimed herself lucifer's arch enemy. Though she hid this title from those around her by the age of twelve sherry had read the bible from front to back and was particularly interested. In the book of revelation the final book of the christian bible known for its strange imagery and apocalyptic predictions schreiner was fascinated by the concepts of the end of days and the arrival of the anti christ but despite shriners deep immersion in biblical studies. She hated her religion. She disagreed with much of christianity and brandon herself a nonconformist becoming the black sheep of her family but sherry shifted her biblical prophecy studies to the side while she focused on higher education she dreamed of pursuing a career in television news broadcasting

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Posts Benchmark Result in Passmark

"Top story and be Verizon 5 5600 ex-post Benchmark results in PassMark, 10% above all in Sol processors the new processor had impressive performance in the past or single thread Benchmark. It was forty-seven percent faster than its predecessor has be all Intel chips. The processor has a base clock of 3.5 gigahertz and boosts up to 4.6 gigahertz and retails for $299. The score was 3945 points the previous processors the ryzen 5 2600x off scored twenty-six hundred seventy-seven points and the rise in five thirty six hundred XT score 2832 points. We've yet to see benchmarks from the new Rising seven fifty-eight hundred ex or Thursday nine fifty nine hundred XT or two fifty nine fifty ex, but they will of course have significantly better scores than what the 5600 access May is so far. We've got good news on the GPU front to which will discuss dead. In the gaming news. Yeah, this processor Benchmark. It's really exciting stuff because AMD they had the plague catch up with Intel for some time past few years with the rise and launchers have been really good. Okay before Rising came out AMD was kind of lagging behind for years on the CPU front. Unfortunately and the past few years have come out was rising and they've come out with some amazing stuff. They were still a little behind until as far as performance goes, but they were definitely catching up and now it looks like at least it's single thread performance here on the new CPUs are coming out. Yeah, they're exceeding until they're even exceeded their own stuff. But beyond what I would have thought you know, now what are these stores based off of exactly their benchmark scores? This is the single threaded Performance Off. It's kind of hard to explain to someone who might not be quite as tech-savvy. Okay, but it's just a way that process is certain renderings or whatnot. Like what's the scale? Like, what's the highest she that I don't think there is a highest you just get more and more and more points God's it. Yeah, that's like it's like the Dave Meltzer scoring system. I guess except has a supposed to be five stars and several wrestlers have broken the Yankees, but I like I think you've reviewed like in a store match couple years ago something like that. All right. Well, let's start a wrestling podcast some time and as much as we're talking about wrestling cuz this is a ticket. I don't know if you're free time, right? That's all right, ma'am. But yeah, so I'm really excited about these rides and see if he is a competition is definitely a good thing and it's great to see AMD really competing with Intel on Thursday. They're competing with Nvidia 2 and we're going to get into that in the gaming news. That's really excited stuff too. Now. Do you think these new processes will give them an advantage as far as like encryption is concerned with encryption. I really don't know but I know we do have a a little vulnerability with the Intel CPUs. I want you tell us about that sure researchers extract a secret key used to encrypt until CPU code a secret key that encrypts updates to a number of Intel CPUs has been extracted bowing third parties to decrypt the microcode updates until provides to fix security vulnerabilities and other bugs. It's possible to update Intel chips with off the microcode using the secret key. There's no way to effectively eliminate the vulnerability but until has said the issue is not serious for customers wage. As an attacker would require physical access to the machine

To me on Diana I'm looking forward to chatting with my fellow salesman. This is gonNA. Be a great conversation because we're we're both passionate about this subject i. Am really curious. You know we live in strange times. Some people could say that small businesses are perpetually in strange times but I'm curious about what what you think are like reasons why? Few companies survive fewer even than that flourish and most of them fail. Yeah Great Question. There are a few reasons. Why I think it happens I think the problem stems I from. The fact that we really never taught how to be leaders of teams. We've been taught. How To be good engineers or good finance people or maybe a good mathematician. Whatever it might be something marketing or or Business Administration. But never sort of leadership or leading teams, which is really I think what a great leader does. We do a lot of things that are that are wrong or. Mostly. Wrong Because, we've never been taught anything differently since most businesses fail over time. there's some stats out there. I was just looking at them in preparation for this yesterday and. I looked over I, think from the Bureau of Labor Statistics over a twenty five year period. You go from about a fifty percent chance of lasting five years to about a sixteen percent chance of lasting twenty five.

Best Of Reputation, Reviews, Recommendations & Referrals with Mark S.A. Smith

"Welcome Mark sa Smith back for the third time and I do believe that essay stands for super awesome. Is that correct or something? The adapter smart-ass depending on how you doing. Actually it actually stands for Steven antin with a name like Smith, you know, you need to have extra names and for me, it's my brand. Right, right. You're Brian Bacon off of the three big I Delight to be with you and I love our conversations and I'm honored to be a three-peat with you. And let's Dive Right In cuz we've got some hot stuff off and only yeah, we do. So as I was telling you in the precursor and earlier this week, I did a podcast and blog on managing your reputation. And today I gave a presentation about managing your reputation. So what I wanted to talk to you about because I mean you work in the the corporate world. I mean you're in the big you're in the big pond and you know, damn fortune five hundred companies. Yeah. Yeah. So you're playing with some big fish and we talked about I mean the two things that we did before was managing disruption. And then how do you catch a whale so yep Working with these whales the question that you know, we're going to get into today is about getting reviews in managing your reputation. So let's let's start off by talking about wage. You know, how do you get people to give good reviews? What's your what's your process or what your thoughts on that? I love this. Well, I want to frame this up just a little bit. You know, I'm a small business doing business with big business and that has benefits and has distractions and attractions, you know, the benefit is that the checks tend to be large the distractions is that as you pointed out constipation compensation constipation. They tend to be slow payers. So you just have to manage all that and that said today we are all driven by reviews. So consider this listener a.m. The last time you bought something from Amazon that you had never bought before without checking out the reviews. How about you Brian? I'm just joined Amazon Prime this year and I can honestly say yo, Coolest thing ever you get something delivered on a Sunday. But hey always check the reviews. I mean, that's every time it's price and reviews. Those are the two most important things to me and you know, we look for a couple thoughts and reviews number one is we look for you know, how many five-star reviews and we look for people that are having genuine problems. And for me. I also look for the negative reviews because I want to find out what kind of problems people have so I can say no that's not a true problem or I don't expect that problem or or to say, you know that I appreciate that Insight. I think I'm going to choose something else. I'm sure it's the same for you know, absolutely. Yeah. I mean that's you know, I'll definitely look at the negative reviews and if it's if it's something, you know, if there's enough of the same thing that's usually because there's always a troll or somebody out there that's going to be something negative cuz they just were not happy that day, you know competitors do it all the time competitors frequently troll products and so in the world of Amazon you look for a job. Flight purchased it they really buy it if they didn't really bite. Forget it. I'm going to ignore that. So the point that is that we do we're we become we become a review page driven society and the second example of that is Yelp know when do we go to restaurants without reviewing them on Yelp or without having somebody say, oh, you gotta go try it out right now with have to have reviews and it's built into our DNA now. So with that it means that we have to collect reviews we have to ask for reviews. We have to post reviews we have to manage reviews and the best way to do that is to actively ask for them. So, how do you go about it getting reviews Brian see now? This is a place where I disagree with you because when you ask for a review page, you ask for a testimonial what most people say they say, yeah sure. No problem. I'll get through and then it just sits and sits and sits and then you remind him a second time you think about it a week or two later and say hey, can I get a name? Review. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Sorry I forgot about it. And then you ask him a third time and then they started getting annoyed cuz you're bugging them. So the way that I do it and the way that I found the most success and this is actually based on a book that I read called The Hundred zero principle and it's buy one of my mentors is name is Al Ritter and you can actually get it on Amazon. It's written by it's a by company called Simple truths and his principal is not give a hundred percent of yourself a hundred percent of the time expect nothing in return and Watch What Happens the way that I get reviews so ask for I give them a lot of used to people that I work with. I'll go on LinkedIn and I'll write them a review. What is LinkedIn do that? LinkedIn actually says, hey you got a review from Brian Basilico. Do you want to return the favor of nine times out of ten? We are competitive we as we get a review we're going to say, well, he wrote a really nice review. I'm going to do a better one and I'm going to put more thought process into it and I'm going to do it now because Want to return the favor at this moment and I would owe you right about 70% of the time. You not only get the review a lot faster or the testimonial lot faster. But what you end up getting a much more glowing heartfelt thought-out review beautiful. I love the idea of give a review to get a review another strategy that I suggest is to ask for a review when somebody compliments, you know these days when people say thanks a lot of really appreciate what you did for me. Most people say no problem don't ever say that you're wasting an opportunity. No problem. Lies that what you did has no value and the world was sales as in politics is run on a favor bank. So if somebody says thank you put a favor in your favor Bank. You're welcome. I wage you do the same for me. Would you do me a favor and which case they're going to say sure. Would you mind just typing that up that those same things and I know you also record it when people are dead. Online and so you just asked me if you can transcribe it. That's a brilliant strategy. Yeah,

Pete Hines (SVP Global Marketing & Communications, Bethesda Softworks) Discusses Bethesda's Purchase by Microsoft

"To say we have. Worked closely. With Microsoft, for pretty much my entire time at them, the FESDAY, it's a company we know well They were the ones who really gave us the incentive to change from just being a PC only developer which we were when I started back in ninety nine we we developed and made games only on the PC and decided to make the leap for a game called the eldest group elder scrolls, three more wind for the original xbox and honestly in in part because at their urging, hey, this this console could could handle could do the kind of games that you all make an RPG like yours. Could do pretty well on our system and that was sort of the early days of what has become no a two decade relationship between ourselves and a lot of folks over there who we very much like and respect to chief amongst them obviously being Phil, Spencer and. In terms of his vision how how he sees the the future of Microsoft how we fit in that future? and how this this acquisition can lead to. A future for for both of us, that is sort of win win win. In that we get support and resources that allow us to make even bigger and better games with their help. You know if I've I've worked with I've worked as a publisher who is a third party publisher and developers who have all had to be third party developers for very long time. The opportunity of join somebody and essentially be treated as a first party. Developer publisher is pretty darn appealing in terms of. Access to resources or the conversations you get to have not just in like what are you need to make the? Game better but like from console support standpoint from a systems level standpoint are there things you need us to do, and again we've been in this industry a long time, and so we hear the stories behind the scene about first party games. They get a certain features or special support from Sony or Microsoft Nintendo to lower a first party game to do something particular and you know you talked our developers that's pretty appealing I. Think it's Great for Microsoft as well because I think we bring a lot of additional pedigree to an already very strong lineup and stable of developers look I believe in walking softly and carrying a big stick but. I've been doing this for a long time like we're pretty good catch like we make a lot of really good games. We've made a lot of game of the year stuff and bestseller stuff and in a variety of different. Genres and if I step it, take my Bethesda hat off for a minute. were pretty good get and I, think we ultimately make them better as a company to be a part of what they're doing. And the other one is I think this will ultimately be a win for fans and for gamers because at the end of the day, the thing that we have always believed first and foremost is look making games as a pain in the ass it's hard. It's a lot of work over a lot of years on a lot of people. Spent big chunks of their lives working on these games, and we spent a lot of money making them, and at the end of the day, we want as many people as possible to be able to play what what it is. We make and Microsoft is very much in the same camp of we want to help you get your games to the widest audience possible which. Means that you people are going to be able to play our games you know all over the place you know not just on a specific console, not just on your PC, but what they do with X. God streaming, and now streaming being something that we as a company have looked into and worked on some some things there in terms of moving that forward as viable. Technology that you know. Sure. I'll I'll have people playing sky rim doom fallout fill in number here on his many devices as we can, and so at the end of the day I think it is a good cultural fit at think it's a good philosophical fit and I think it's a good fit where our strengths play welded their strengths and advisers. Yeah. So so just falling because there's another question was sort of desperate Ted to ask in S, which is so you said you know protest is a good gap ripe and totally agree I mean they're assuming credible brands in the portfolio that s to has, but also you guys weren't cheap. You know the acquisition is William. It's worth mentioning your benchmark right as we as a benchmark on the. Might might benchmarked requisitions is Star Wars Disney bought star wars that was like two billion dollars, right? That's kind of my benchmark. So I large acquisitions I value in multiple. Multiple. Star. Wars. Yeah. But then. Again, I mean three point, five star wars like that is a lot of. A lot of stars that's actually more star wars than actually art films, in stores, mainland. So Seriously, though like just. Valuation, obviously, you know Microsoft sophisticated buyer you know you guys must've deserved it. But where is that value coming from? Is it the IP juicy? The value in elder scrolls fall out things like that is at the studios in the talent is it something else like if Microsoft we're gonNA say there were seven billion dollars for X. Y. and Z. What are the buckets that value is getting created We'll. Certainly it's the things that you mentioned we we do have a lot of pretty strong IP's. Elder scrolls a massive brand for US fallout doom Wolfenstein. We've we've got a lot of stuff that has value and legacy right and not stuff that we just came up with five years ago right? Doom started and Wolfenstein started the popularity of were the existence of first person shooters a really long time ago so whether it's RPG's or first person shooters I do think we have very strong piece I also believe we have really good pedigree in our studios in terms of every studio that we have. That is part of our company that we've shipped a game with has won at least one game of the year award for what they've made a except for one developer and that's pretty impressive. When you talk about a whole wide variety of studios different locations, very different genres, actions you know first person send stuff, really bloody violent kill Nazi stuff kill demons post apocalyptic fantasy. We do a lot of different stuff. So I do think there's a lot of talent I also think that and I've I've heard Phil talk about this is he had a lot of respect for the fact that it's Not just that we have talent but that were willing to take chances and try and push things forward and break ground right? We didn't just participate in Vr like we were you know primary catalyst for VR

Star Wars: Squadrons Review Round-Up

"Let's start with the Review Roundup for Star Wars squadrons right now are not right now I should say eight forty, one am Pacific Time. So about an hour and a half ago on Metacritic Star Wars squadrons was sitting in eighty one. Now there's a bunch of Asterix here. This is the pink version, and if you went there, there's only. There at the time was only like I would say less than ten reviews up because, of course, Star Wars squadrons, a multiplayer game and the multiplayer servers just going live tomorrow. There was a thing yesterday for press plane which we did. You can hear about on the games gas share a little bit about ear as well but lots of the reviews not posting but the ones that did very positive PC Gaber end gave it a ninety Ian Bordeaux says. But if star wars, squadrons had simply Ben Tie fighter with prettier skies to look at, it would have already been a winning proposition. What it is in fact is a great looking technically demanding starfighter Sim, that provides a dynamic new spin on space dogfighting without any of the usual monetary cruff that companies live service games. Today time will tell if truly has the depth and skill ceiling to give it give it staying power, but it's made a damn fine first impression. If you've ever wanted to become an ace x wing pilot or fondly remember your time in a dos based fighter cockpit star wars squadrons is a must play of twenty, four seven gave it. Four out of five stars, Alex Donaldson wrote, this is the triumph of squadrons. It's clearly lower budget title and easy as other. Star. Wars episode but it comes with a price to match. It has more strained tensions within that. It's still squeeze in as much detail as much fan service and simply put as much content as possible squadrons feels like more of the more than the sum of its parts more most importantly it does exactly what it set out to do, and it does it very well indeed, it's EA's smallest scale console stores title yet, but it's also it's best flea battles a little long and sometimes listless, but some will no doubt pine for. An some we'll find for a little bit more content. I personally would have really liked to see a twenty player or more death match mode, but it's nevertheless difficult to really criticize such a tightly wound complete package as such. It's an easy recommendation and then game informer gave an eight point two. Eight, point, two, five Asia Reiner over there says squadrons single player May fizzle out frequently like a malfunctioning hyper drive motivator but the multi-player continually impresses and is worth the price of entry alone flying in formation with a group of friends put a smile on my face and that was just the calm before the storm when the laser start flying squadrons, multi player can be nothing short. Of exhilarating and a great test of skill pushing players to be clever in the cockpit to out thinking outmaneuver opponents given just how enjoyable it is to pilot an x wing Tai fighter this is a multi player experience I will continue to go back to even if he doesn't support it with new content, it's just fun to play providing something different compared to most today's competitive games.

"With whoop today. All right. Joining us now is a five star, our second five-star Tate that we've had on the show. This is where we are five stars only here on the program. Here's the number one recruit in the state of Tennessee I'm calling it. He is from the class of twenty, twenty two. His name is Sky Clark Sky I wanNA start with this your name Sky Clark that'd be awesome name it is a fantastic name. A great name in the world of basketball almost field like Lebron you have Zion Luca now like sky is a one name name How Much Do you feel that? Like? What's it like having a name like Sky Clark Nice, this is amazing because you could do so much things with it and I've been trying to create a low. and. There's just so much. You can do with sky and the fact that I can jump so. was there ever a point in your life where you didn't like your name like did you get picked on when you're like in kindergarten guys that's a weird name or anything like that our. Cool have your friends always have cooled I'm I'm pretty quiet ask lawyer. No me like the loudest person but. I've never had a problem with it. I've always loved it. And Sky we have to ask you just mentioned this you were you said with your name, you're trying to create a logo of some sorts I. Mean you're a five star recruit twenty, two, twenty, two classes of people that don't know and you have the there's not just the basketball that matters now, right there's the whole show that goes along with this the building of. The brand you talked about your own logo, you have sky I'm Jordan Fan. So you know I and flight a- jumped man of swords can jump into that mode if you need to. But what is it like to have to build a brand in your mind while you're also trying to figure out who you are as a person and as a basketball player at the same time? Is Fun because it also like you said a trying to find yourself with a person. It really helps you find yourself with a person just. Because, you really gotta think like what you love to do what you want to represent in all that. So it's been a fun is when we got some stuff in the works that I'm trying to get out. So well, one of the things I read was that you're close with Gilbert Arenas. And he has bequeath the nickname Hibachi to you. Is this correct. You're not alongside assume it's correct. How does that work is do you have to apply for that? Does he deserve a review board Gilbert Arenas, Lake because I imagine there are a lot of guys that Gilbert Arenas knows and they're like Yo. Let me let me take over agent zero or who botchy or whatever else. You're not good enough but you are good enough. You've earned the right. So how did that whole thing? How does that work? Will we actually before I started playing basketball, we live across the hallway from each other an. Apartment Complex. Across Gobert arena located in well second third grade in him. My Dad became good friends and then. Me and my siblings became best friends with their sibling with their kids and saw we would always be over at their apartment. They will come with ours. It was literally like a two step will off it was the right across the hall. And then I started working out with him when I was a freshman. And we play one on one and I beat him. You. Know. What I would say those does so yeah, it really it was just earned. Yeah. I'm just curious in general because this happens with a lot of guys that are as good as you in high school. Suddenly you hear about guys that become friends with. Or are being mentored by former NBA players you. Guys? Find their way into. Five Stars live and I'm I'm fascinated by that because the guy who I played basketball at a decently high level but I sucked and there is never a moment in time we're like I grew up in Indianapolis runner test was on the Pacers use awesome. Ron Tests wasn't calling me to like workout shots up and like you know like I didn't have that relationship with. So I'm always fascinated sky. Like, how does that work we're lay like? Obviously the case of said, he moved lived across the street from what I know that either you have relationships with other NBA players and other guys are you know you talk to them? They're mentoring you do they reach out to you reach out to them guys kind of meet at like camps you play like open gyms together. How does that kind of happen? Yeah usually. Outside, it's like a back and forth like most of the time I'll take in just like. Ask, Jim or something how they'd been sometimes, it takes me. Another person I'm really close with his rod strickland. Rather God yes, he was. He was a killer for those who know in a yeah. It's Exim is giving him points. We don't live in the same state or anything I haven't been able to work within but when I. Definitely. Be doing that. We have to ask you mean, you turn out these names, Gilbert Arenas, probably someone that you grew up in salt play basketball but ride I guess rod to I mean. But what is the sort of time line for you like what is the age group of players that you look up to the you're like I wanna be like so and so I want to be like Kobe Bryant I. Think we've seen the Kobe. Bryant's one of your favorite players is that more of your air like t MAC Vince Carter Kobe early two thousand era or is it more to you? Would you say point to a Russell Westbrook James Harden? Like what? What what kind of group of guys you look up to as your idols? Basque. Boy I guess my favorite era is eighties ninety s what yeah. I think you're going to be successful Sky I. I read your big two-part guy to are you. Do, you have bursar. Daniil Monte. Situated. Guy I saw you love to fish as well and I'm like this guy like thirty three like what is going on here? My parents they raised me like I was born in Minnesota. and. My parents raised me that way we we grew up fishing I grew up on old school music. So I know all those go rap songs. Will jazz songs like back to like fifty sixty s rocks Miami. So, yeah. The kids are alright. That's what we're learning. The kids are alright. Let's give some back on for those who might not know you. They're going to quickly learn to to know you are you just recently announced? You're finally schools your finally is in no particular order I'm going to order the graphic you put out Tennessee State Memphis North Carolina Talkie Michigan Ucla Oregon and USC I noticed there is no of state on that list. I also went through your twitter account Saul Ohio, state offered you what the hell what's going on here sky like, what what, what are we going to do here I mean like what's going on? The. List is not another study chain. Okay. All right. That's It all serious what goes behind putting out a final eight. This is something to talk a lot about is like we're just fascinated by the process of the recruit. Cut Your. Why? Why? Why? Why not six why not nine why not to My space-related like what is it? Is Actually. I started off. I was GONNA do top five. Picking Five schools was hard. So I went and six. Six schools is hard and so I picked seven and then USC days before I was Gonna put it out as said, they offered me a year ago but I never knew oh I've made it eight. One of the schools are your listeners Ucla. The other five star that appear on our program committed UCLA, his name Peyton Watson you guys are you you're pretty close you say. How much is Peyton recruiting you now that he's a Ucla Bruin is he telling you to come back home to la where you belong is is that a thing that's happening? He told me but. He has a talk too much about it but I know he has a lot going on over there. Yeah. Having form does that does that go on for real guys guys like you know collude like colludes probably too strong that makes it sound like sinister kind of how it feels from the outside when like Y- a great recruiting class for one specific school forms you just assume the guys are calling each other. So Lake your uncommitted right now, do you have guys that have? Already committed places that are calling like, Hey, man I I I need I'm I'm a five star wing I did a point guard that's GonNa give me the ball like you should complete with me..

"Whoa well anna is doing here is she you know is using this measure cold tunnel neck with when you and i look at profits we look at you know dollars all all possibly you know you know since per share something of that what analysts doing is looking at a ratio whether denominate to assist to this thing called equity which we come we're not gonna bother defining but the what happened after the financial crisis with the regulators forced banks to have much more of it and so you'll return on equity if you're going to look at that particular ratio has gone down just because there's more equity this is exactly what it should be if i if equity haven't gone down that would be very worrying you want the banks to be holding a lot of equity money yes so that they also absorbing rely on big bailouts and freak everyone out so maybe the return on equity shouldn't be so high i would just say that yes it is certainly true that part of the reason that are always have declined is because obviously you have larger denominator but you also have had you you've had lower rates as well which is hertz brings profitability as well if you're looking at the numerator and moving forward return on equity is important in terms of how banks can lend how banks can stimulate the economy so i'm not saying i don't understand i don't think that's true i don't think there's any empirical reason to believe that.
