The Expulsion of Chesa Boudin Points to a Larger Problem...
"I thought we could continue our discussion of chesa boudin I think very welcome expulsion of Jessa boudin, but we were saying at this points to a larger problem, the larger problem is that you got you got the left and they don't take the crime laws or even the constitution very seriously at all. Their view is that law is a tool. And you were saying many of these and can be molded. Many of these guys go to law school not to learn about the law, but to learn about how the law can be manipulated to their end. And now this goes back to a school called legal realism that developed about a century ago. And legal realism is based on the idea that don't think of the law as a set of neutral principles that apply evenly or fairly to everybody. I think that was a French thinker a couple centuries ago who said something like the law in its majestic equality forbids both the rich and the poor from sleeping under bridges. And he was being sarcastic what he meant to say was that the law is made by rich people. Obviously rich people don't need to sleep under bridges. So they pass this law. No one can sleep under a bridge. But the idea is poor people need to sleep under bridges because how else do they get shelter from The Rain? So the point being that this seemingly neutral law that makes just kind of laying out here, the logic of legal realism, that law is not neutral. Lies made by powerful people to protect their own interests. And so the left is fully justified in going into law and manipulating and twisting the law to its own
The Stupidity of Pronouns and Twisted Gender Language
"Are actually his awesomeness and his majesty, that works too. I'll take those. We'll stick with those two for now. His awesomeness and his majesty are good enough for me. After all, I'm not majestic. I am not royal, but if I identify as such, you must call me as such. I am also not awesome. That's my wife. She'll tell you, this guy's far from awesome. He leaves a lot to be desired as a husband and as a father, she'll rip me one side and down the other. But if I identify as awesome that I am literally the king, you can't, you can't get me in any way whatsoever. That sounds stupid, and it is. But then again, so is the entire pronoun movement. The entire trans, let's throw out English, grammar, syntax, cast it all to the side, singular plural, whatever. Let's throw out the actual English language. Let's make up words. Let's make up
Second Booster or Natural Antibodies?
"There is a study out of Israel just released yesterday that shows that people who got a second booster had less complications from COVID, less severe symptoms, less illness, less hospitalization, less death. Who knows? I mean, at this point, I think they're flipping a coin. I decided, after I heard all this booster talk, well, you know, I'm vaccinated. I've got a booster. I had COVID over Christmas. Mild symptoms, I've got this big musical coming up next month in Dallas.

It's going to it's going to be mounted the first weekend or the middle of the weekend in May. May, I think, 12 through the 15th or something like that. And you know, heaven forbid, I get COVID in the middle of that. Like I did when I played daddy warbucks in Annie, three weeks into the run, and I wound up getting COVID. And I had to miss the final weekend of performances. So that was, that was tricky. They had a understudy who came in and finished the run, which was great, but you know, with the antibodies test, 2500, my doctor says, Mike, you got plenty of antibodies.

"majestic " Discussed on The Drill Down
"For gas, which is weird, but that's just what happens in that industry. But I've never seen anyone talk about a silver equivalent when they're talking about gold. You have, you know, you mentioned the silver bug in the CEO. You've also got one of the biggest speculators on minerals out of Canada, now a big part of this company in Eric's brought the Canadian billionaire who now owns about 11% of the company's stock fully diluted if the warrants get priced in, which would require the stock to help you deliver about 13% of the company. What does that mean? Functionally. If you've got a guy like Eric's brought, who's no small character. So deeply involved in this company. Right. I think operationally, there's probably not a lot of moving parts going on. I don't think sprout is involved in the day to today, but as you say he is, perhaps the biggest name in the precious metals mining industry he's sort of the Warren buffet of that sector. So the fact that he has taken such a big stake that they have that capital backing, I think it sends a message to other investors that sprout is usually a very good indicator for which companies do we think are healthy, he does his due diligence. He is renowned for being a great student doing his homework about the companies he invests in. So Eric sprouts involvement is just one of those indicators that I would say is flashing green for first majestic. Well, I mean, to say someone is the Warren Buffett of precious metals is kind of like saying someone is the I don't know the Los Angeles Dodger of the San Francisco Giants. Buffett's very specifically said that investing in gold is silly and doesn't make any sense because it's a non productive asset. So I will put that comparison to the side. As I plug my San Francisco Giants, I think I've got a shot here. We've got a big shot. But another, you mentioned Mexico is a good place to mine for silver. And I guess if the goal is getting silver, it is, but these guys have a major beef with the government of Mexico going on. Where the president of Mexico has come up explicitly and castigated first majestic silver for not paying their taxes. Has taken them to court or tried to take them to court for not paying their taxes, and there's a big dispute going on or first majestic is saying they owe taxes on something like $7 million in gains and the government of Mexico says it's closer to 250 million. Which is a big difference. That's a pretty big gap. So I mentioned this because it makes a lot of big difference to the value of this company and probably what they do going forward. If they were to have to pay $250 million in taxes, it would wipe out all of their cash, for example. For rect and there are some potential drawbacks that I think have led many analysts to being slightly bearish on first majestic as you brought up with the tax problem with the Mexican government that does essentially draw back to back taxes that they inherited from their subsidiary that it was doing business in Mexico between 2010 and 2014. Let me paraphrase the new telling me one more on that. Sure. So it seems like the acquired a company that had a really nice tax deal and was losing money. And they inherited it they bought the company and the company, the first majestic silver claims to have run it by the Mexican government and said, here's what we're doing. Here's why they don't know any taxes. This company is losing hundreds of millions of dollars. And so that they effectively had so many losses that when they had gains later that they were essentially netted out to about nothing. The Mexican government says, no, no, no, no. You should have been selling silver higher prices and you actually sold them for. Therefore, we are charging you taxes based on what you should have been taking in not what you claim you were taking in. I got that wrong. Yes, yes. And that is the sticking point as under the previous agreement the silver was being sold at a heavily discounted price plus a 1% annual increase as part of a streaming agreement with another silver minor wheat and precious metals. So yeah, what is a streaming agreement? I read that and I didn't really know what that meant. Yes. So this is a byproduct of what I mentioned earlier where most silver mining companies are not primary silver miners. All the streaming agreement is that one silver company will come in and buy up a certain amount of future production from another mind without taking a joint ownership or any sort of stake in that actual mind, they're just buying some of its future production to create another stream as it were of silver ounces flowing onto their bounce sheet section. In this case, they locked in a price correct and a price was like 6 bucks an ounce. Yes. It was 6 bucks an ounce. Right. And there was this 1% annual increase that was built into the agreement. But essentially, there is a dispute here where the government wants to get their hands on a fairer amount of the being able to tax more of the production than at that lower $6 price. And the company that was getting that 6, I would imagine they weren't very once the price of silver rises a lot higher, they're not inclined to make a lot of silver, but I guess if it's a byproduct of what you're mining for otherwise all the silver is going to come out of the ground anyway. Correct, and it makes some sense to lock in some metal production in the same way that this original agreement benefited the subsidiary company primarily mining that was later acquired by first majestic. It benefited them from having tax certainty, which you know is a big deal. So the fact that this is going to the courts and has not been resolved is probably the largest drag on the bull case for first majestic. And again, I don't care about the stocks, but I do care a lot about this interesting company and how the business works. And it does seem that one of the interesting things here is there are two venues or at least at some point there were two venues that were the Mexican courts, and then there was an after court, which would seem like a more logical venue for a Canadian company mining in Mexico. I agree and it's even interesting that the update to nafta the USMCA didn't make any big changes that would have implications for this particular case, except that it would seem to me that a nafta style court would be the more appropriate venue when you're dealing with not just international investment and taxation disputes, but literally both being on the continent in North America, where the agreement is in effect. Well, such an interesting company and let me ask you just finally, what do you expect in terms of the time frame for the resolution of this case, whether they got to pay 250 million where they got to pay taxes and 250 million or whether they've got to pay 6 million in taxes. Right. I would expect and maybe I'm being a bit optimistic that it would be resolved in the next year or so because as you said that $250 million price tag that represents all of their free cash flow, which first majestic has made it a habit of plowing that money right back into capital expenditure capital expenditures excuse me. Their CAPEX spending and R and D. So as an investor, I would love to see that money continuing to be reinvested back into the company rather than having to sit frozen in this sort of tax dispute. Yeah, interesting. First was just a silver is indeed interesting. So are you ever and you know so much about this stuff, gainsville coins is lucky to have you. We are as well here on the drilling podcast, coming up next. The drill down bite to that one number that tells us a whole lot look the production for this company is just massive. But what is the silver equivalent ounces.

"Influences perspective we determine how important things are by the way we perceive them. The president of your country surely may be apparent but you do not necessarily see him the same way you see your father. Why is that because the president seems far away from your world and you only perceive him as an authority. Figure your father's always around or perhaps a phone call away so you define your father by the emotional attachment you have with him. The same can be said of god people define and describe him in varying ways because of how they perceive him some perceive god to be this awesome being far away in the heavens ruling the world and his majesty others also see him to be the loving father who looks after us and response whenever we call upon him. Both perspectives are true but we would be missing out on half the holistic experience of knowing him with we have either near or far view of him. Not both so the same way. We find corrective lenses whenever we have a visual disparity it is about time we adjusted our god lenses. If you only have a short sighted view of god it is necessary to get your vision. Balanced. so you do not ignore the fact that although he's your best friend and father he's also the majestic king and creator of the universe. This is crucial because we are sometimes tempted to ignore the greatness of our god and see him as a mere psychic whom we call on whenever we are lonely and in need of something. And if you have the long-sighted view of god is being fearful and just who rewards people according to their deeds you should readjust your view because although he is all that he's also the most dependable and closest friend you can ever have. This is also significant. Because some people believe he is so far away and preoccupied with bigger issues that he cannot have time for our little daily problems but that is not true so why not take some time and get your vision checkout if you're missing view then you should reposition your perspective and if you are seeing everything clearly both far and near the almighty god in all his splendor and glory coming down to earth man to die for us so we can regain our place with him in heaven then rejoice because you are enjoying the whole view.

"Can decide to devote a good portion of their lands to the some form of climate adaptation and people get engaged in that way. Skylines has been supporting whether it's four service or the park service in respiration mitigation other such things. That's just not how it happens here. A lot of effort in mexico has been focused on trying to connect with ranchers landowners to somehow provide information that they can use in technical expertise. They can use to improve. Their cattle husbandry practices in their land stewardship practices to face increased droughts increasing increases in temperature etc in a way that benefits both the ranching operation and wildlife. This approaches is definitely different. There are of course other things that have been done. Historically different mexican. The united states a notable example is fire management and the as a result of climate change. The united states has seen some really catastrophic fires in recent times which are also the result of longstanding policy of of fighting every single fire. Mexico never quite approached wildfire in the same manner so the fire dynamics that naturally occurred on landscapes that are very similar. Were allowed to kerr made so there. We don't have many places the the massive buildup of fuel that that the us hasn't so adapting to drought and increased. Potential for fire is is probably not as difficult. I would say as Proving to be united states. Do you have a favorite spot. In the sky island region that would probably be the northern jaguar reserve. I have i was like i mentioned very much. Involved in the establishment of that reserve fifteen years ago and its management for a number of years. I no longer am but never faces there. That are so so remote and feel so wild at you. Walk around you sitting next to a clear pool of water and it feels like no. Jaguar could just walk by not even notice you acid goes on. Its way that would be. That would be the place i pick. Gosh it'd be just the coolest Name of a place to work possible. Jaguar reserve now and just to have that in the title. That would be pretty amazing. Well one carlos it's been up treat chatting with you and learning about what's going on the mexico side of the border with with the alliance is doing what what you're doing and thanks for coming on thank you doug and thanks for your just in the sky islands of your your love okay. We're back in. I am back with louise. And we had that field trip. And i've talked to other people that are part of the alliance and doing some really cool work. It's been such an awesome journey. Just learning what you guys are up to but just really quickly what stood out for you on that field trip. We did yeah so it was wonderful to to be standing in this. But we like to call the path of the jaguar down there this important corridor for wildlife and see that it's still part of it is still open for wildlife to move back and forth across the us mexico border that lifts my heart seeing on the ground and it's been unimportant. Focus of our work for the last year we also saw the impacts of the drought for sure so we visited a spring that we've been seeing water out for over a year. Now that's gone dry on. We're seeing a lot of stress in the oak trees turning brown and the habitat just looking very stressed from the drought. So that's a tough to see and definitely concerning and an important part of what will be focusing on to try and help ecosystems adapt in the coming years. Okay so the things that we did on that field trip we're going to. I wanted to a little bit about climate adaptation as an organization you had mentioned earlier in the episode about climate. Change being such an important driver and when you think about even what we did with the border wall or the springs how climate change is playing into that induce e. Even the work that you're doing on the border wall is being adaptation work. And i would argue that the the wall was put up because people seem to think that migration from other countries is a big problem. And you need to put up this wall. And there's talk of kind of change could drive even more migrations. You see that as part of your organization is your adaptations even when it comes to issues like the border wall naso. Climate change adaptation is important to us in a big part of our conversation in our conservation investments. Because we certainly understand that. There's gonna be.

I also truly enjoy collecting data and being part to help them meet their mission of protecting preserving and restoring the sky islands in southern arizona.

But i really truly enjoy being able to fill that niche and played part to help support their mission awesome. So what is your favorite spot in the entire sky island region. I keep finding new ones. Doug so that's a really hard question got answered you know what i think. Some have done spring on some very remote springs in southern rincon mountain wilderness that were just incredible credible sites incredible plants and animal species located up there even during this extreme drought is amid epidemic drought brin.

"That provide sustenance for that habitat wildlife. Then there won't be anybody doing that. So this is one way. I could get back being gauged in knowledgeable about what's happening in this whole southeastern arizona into mexico will on that no. What's it like working on a board where there's representation from two countries. I love that. I just love it i find. The perspectives. are really interesting. I learn about the way that the mexican government and the national nonprofits in people involved in environmental issues. How they are. You know. Some of their constraints in some of their concerns their resources. I learned things all the time. And you know nature doesn't stop at the border. These landscapes are brought in this particular landscape is so unique that the sky islands there many many habitats down from the desert and few intermittent streams in the lowlands all the way up into the high forest that stretches that bit of geography stretches into mexico. You can't cut it off at work. It's wonderful to be with other people that are that are working at it at mexican perspective. So that's that's been really great so for the past year even as board members the challenge of conducting board business with cova has been a challenge. But what are you looking forward to in the year ahead. Well that's kind of interesting. I think in some ways been easier to connect with my mexican counterparts on the board during cova. Because we're all on zoom and that has actually created this sort of feeling of everybody really being in the room on an equal basis rather than people the united states being in one board grim and the people participating mexico big on camera where all the same space and that's actually been a an equalizer some ways and easier to communicate across the border. I hope we continue that at least for some of our engagement on board. You have a favorite spot in the sky island region. Oh very good.

I remember certainly correctly went to a meet and greet part of the head in the fall of twenty nine eighteen and actually at that time i met some of the staff and adopted wildlife cameras so questions sometime around the october november. Twenty nineteen okay. So you're still learning a bit about them. That's great speaking of wildlife. What is the volunteer. Work that you do with the border wildlife. Study right now so i guess for history for context i assist. It's game lions in march of two thousand twenty right before the pandemic blew up with installing multiple blocks of cameras within the study area and then there was some initial fine tuning of cameras and then eventually rolled into maintenance mode so right now i support the bart wildlife study in maintenance mode of servicing cameras about every six weeks changing st cards checking.

Really just a remarkable landscape getting to interview some of these skyline alliance staff members. They are doing such fantastic work. It is the breathtaking landscape into seagrass lands. And what typically you think is more of a desert environment is really cool and literally. I'm putting my hand through the fence. And i'm on the mexican side and so much controversy in recent years here. It is just a quiet win. Swept location with some amazing wildlife and some of the amazing landscapes. Louis oh here. We are at the border. Could you just describe the surroundings for us. Sure were standing in the san rafael valley state natural area so were in some really beautiful native grassland. And we're at an area along the border where there are vehicle barriers that were standing next to and these are pretty permeable to wildlife so wildlife can get over and under them so this is a really important corridor that's still open to wildlife and then on either side of us were surrounded by the patagonia mountains to the west and the watch yuka mountains to the east. So we're in this special grassland spot in between a couple of skyline and mountains now what's wildlife might not be able to pass through here yes so most wildlife can pass through here Actually pronghorns which are here in the san rafael valley do have trouble with. There's actually a vehicle barrier and barb wire fence right behind it that does give some animals trouble along the border but for the most part large mammals and and small mammals can get through here. So i am seeing. And i see the bob wire in. It looks pretty permeable but the expectation is that they want to build a more solid wall in. That's the threat right now. And with with this area become that sort of wall depending on the policies that the federal government has yeah. So that's what we've been worried about for the last year here. They've been trying to build a border wall which is thirty foot. Steel bollards are really impossible to all kinds of wildlife. I'll in this area for the last year. However things have changed recently and the money that was allocated for this. Construction is no longer. So there's really good signs that this is gonna stay for now. Permeable to wildlife so guys. We've been here at the border for close to thirty minutes and i've yet to see a single person cross so that really isn't such a big avenue for people crossing over the border is it now. He's not i. And i would say that data wireless cameras across the entire place. Listen support that either. Yeah so all of this talk of an emergency at the border you can. You can see who's out here. It's birds and Standing hair but you know there. There's no emergency here. We're way out in the middle of nowhere in a lotta ways and this is where the wildlife is and that's who should be. What are some of the biggest misconceptions people have about what's going on at the border. Well one really big one. Is that a lot of people. Think of this area. In as the sonora and chihuahua desert when they think of a desert they think of an empty sandy ecosystem. Without a lot of what's going on here with the beautiful mountains.

So even though we might find detections of species that should weren't protection. There is not currently illegal mechanism for that to stop construction. Is there anything that the executive branch do. So you just mentioned all these waving of these laws and such that can bake in protection in between administrations is there. something at the is alliance is recommending. End alliance supports that congressional repeal of the real d. Act because it's the best chance we have to re remove the law waivers that continue to put our sky islands borderlands. At risk powell. So what are some of the policy options going on on the mexican side of the wall.

Us have been collaborating for decades now on spatially on in conservation they put millions of dollars both countries to recover a lot of species that happened loss including jr hours will spice indifferent blackberries different things. And and what is what is was disappointing. Is that during the past years as was being constructed. The latest on the nutrition in mexico led by manuel lopez. What other has never complained and never any fact. Actually not only didn't complain. They didn't try to stop it from by international news but they also reduce the budget and they cut the funds for the park service. Tend to forty service in mexico so right now what we're trying to do too is to demonstrate that all these species that are just that we have left and that that are moving through these narrow pads are species that we have been working together. Both countries have the time.

Okay let's just say. I'm going for walk on here near the border and i actually see a jaguar. What should i do. Well that will be re lucky on your side but ours are really shy and really afraid of people especially compared to mountain lions because of that.

"You like i are a connoisseur of music docks i imagine. How many do you think you've watched in your lifetime. Let's say let's try and put a number on this showy might be a hundred.

It's chilling robbing. It's definitely yelling. It's concern you. And i've spent a lot a lot a lot of time in our lives. Digging it in your hand of music musicians musical genres the history of the form. The feuds the fights the love and it's an interesting kind of a subcategory. Why do you think music in particular has been so ripe for the documentary form especially nowadays. It feels like we're getting a new one every week including some that. The ringer ourselves are producing. It is true that the star documentary is a necessary function of a rollout. You know taylor swift if you count like a netflix concert movie. That she did.

Why do we wanna see. These majestic figures of popular. Music hit their peaks and then crashed so painfully right. It's it's a celebrity worship thing.

The History of Grand Central Station
"On a snowy january morning in nineteen o to a train operator entering midtown manhattan missed the stop signs. The train pummeled into a danbury express train on fifty sixth street the collision killed fifteen people on impact. At least forty more passengers were bruised and burned and two died within a week at the time it was the worst train accident in new york city. History there had to be a solution for the smoke from the train. Steam engines that fog the tracks. The new york central railroad's chief engineer william j. wilderness. Had a solution while the phrase lightbulb moment may not have been in the popular lexicon yet wilga said his inspiration came to him quote in a flash of light. It was the most daring idea that ever occurred to me. We'll just wanted to demolish the existing grand central depot and swap out all the stations steam powered trains for electric ones. Getting rid of the noxious fumes would help. Train operators see their path ahead. They could even run underground more tracks beneath the surface. Meant less need for bulky. Train sheds on street level. We'll just figured the leftovers space could house retail businesses and encourage private development. He envisioned the new station as a so-called gold mine and he was right today. Grand central terminal is a bustling masterpiece spanning forty eight acres and forty four platforms in the heart of manhattan. It's one of new york's biggest architectural gemstones and arguably one of the most majestic transportation hubs in the world but any building with so much money traffic and history as its fair share of

Timing is changing for example in harvey bay humpbacks often arrive and leave earlier than in the past at the end of the season tour. Boats sometimes have trouble even finding a whale on top of that we also of course have higher uncertainty in terms of weather and we actually started to get a lot more rain in the dry season because the ocean is still so warm which can make for a wet uncomfortable day see.

The Xunantunich Account
"Tucked away. Inside the countryside of modern day belize lies one of the greatest standing ruins of the maya civilization shuna on tunisia's ancient name is unknown but historians estimate that the structures of tune each were built beginning in the seventh century. C e however the land had been occupied by the maya for much longer as early as one thousand bc in those first centuries it was just a small village but at some point in the seventh century it began to grow in size and power. The lords of the ancient maya city built ball courts palaces and temples but the city's crown jewel was the structure known as el custodio. A one hundred thirty foot pyramid topped with shrines offices and a royal palace hsun each was a thriving metropolis the center of a powerful kingdom. Then all of a sudden it wasn't the collapse of the my empire was one of the most devastating and dramatic catastrophes in human history. But it didn't happen all at once. The collapse of the classic my civilization occurred not long after shoot onto each was built around eight hundred ce. By the end of the ninth century the region and its majestic monuments almost totally deserted in less than two hundred years. The city's population had nearly vanished. Royal dynasties disappeared. Cities fell to ruin the great pyramids of the maya sat untouched for and were reclaimed by the jungle. But over the next millennium the region was colonized by european settlers by the eighteen. Hundreds of colonists. An interest in the ancient cities and their expeditions uncovered a wealth of artifacts that were shipped away to european museums and auction houses. However these pieces of history provided few clues as to what cataclysm destroyed the maya cities something had caused the empire to crumble yet to this day. We still don't know why but for a lucky few their spirits and shown on tune each who will show them the keys to this ancient mystery. If only they would listen how. To- felt uneasy as he walked through the ancient temples. There were no real dangerous here. No musket wielding british soldiers on horseback but there was a dense fog shrouded. Everything missed but hocine 'to could still see the dark stones covered in moss and the snake like lines that crept up the temple walls most days to walk the extra two and a half miles just to avoid the sight of it but today be didn't have the energy. He hadn't slept much last night or any night in the past three months. Not since his father died a scene to had borrowed money for a decent burial. He thought he'd be able to pay back but then the storm came. It devastated his crop of bananas now. He barely had enough to pay the englishman who owned his land and not a single schilling left for his wife and son. His wife was getting sicker every day. It was the same sickness that had taken his father the same fever and bloody cough and recently his son. Miguel had become to cough to how cintos didn't know why he'd been spared. His wife said it was a spanish applied. Maria said europeans were immune to the diseases. They brought to the maya and the husino often considered himself native. He'd been born on the peninsula. He was european after all had tried everything to raise money for a doctor. He begged from neighbors tried fishing and hunting but his neighbors were just as poor as he was and even if he caught a fish or a deer there was no one to sell it to how seen was watching his wife and son die he felt as if the world was falling apart which might be. Why the temples made him feel so uneasy because that hopelessness must have been how. The maya felt long ago that there was nothing they could do. Cinco continued walking toward the center of the ancient city in front of him. One moss covered building towered above the others a narrow strip of stone steps visible at its front. Something white flashed at the bottom of the steps at first husino fodder was a bird but as he came closer he saw it was a woman. She wore long white repeal and a belt of turquoise beads tight around your waist her arms were piled high with gold and silver bracelets and the skin above her nose had been painted a vibrant red.
"majestic " Discussed on KSFO-AM
"Of the majestic Rocky Mountains. This show is about empowering you people and organizations that want to optimize the rest. Let's minimize taxes and empower they're authentic. Well. You may be aware I have a YouTube channel. It's free. I would encourage you to subscribe because I post an in depth answer to a specific financial question. Almost a daily and these questions have been asked Sometimes hundreds of times a month for the last several months. And so a recent question that I answered was what is the truth about a 401 k that no one tells you people are typing in that kind of question. Well, I answered that recently on my YouTube channel, and I started out by sharing with him. How years ago I I published editorials articles in several newspapers, and it was titled How Congress is Peddling IRA and 41 Case. Snake Oil. And I was talking about the original premise of my reason for a win. Kay's is that you put in pretax dollars or tax deductible contributions to an IRA and you accumulate that money tax deferred. And then when you retire, you will pay tax on what you harvest in your IRAs and 41 K's during retirement. It's the farmer and the seed metaphor that maybe you've heard may use before. If you were a farmer and a you are going to be buying seed to plant In the spring time. This is life, okay? And you don't have to pay tax on the price of the seed. You planted it. You irrigate you cultivate you work hard and in the fall when you're going to harvest your crops, this is in the fall of life when you retire. Now you agreed to pay tax on what you sell your harvest for and the whole premise was really wrong. Oh, you will likely be in a lower bracket when you retire, so it'll be better to postpone Put off procrastinate paying tax until you retire because you're gonna be the lower bracket. Well, folks that has not been truer actually Matic for more than 25 years. We have found that people who save any type of a respectable retirement nest egg the savers in America who have saved enough to equal or exceed the lifestyle they had during their earning years. They are not in lower brackets, and they were going down the highway with 1 ft. On the gas pedal and the other foot on the brake pedal, and they didn't even know they were doing that. Meaning. Putting money into tax deferred accounts is like putting your foot on the gas pedal when you're going down the highway in your car, right? But what's the foot on the brake? Because that's sort of silly to have 1 ft. On the gas in the other foot on the brake Well, a lot of people throughout their life are actually killing their tax deductions. They pay off their house. They don't have those mortgage interest deductions in retirement. If you want to own your home and retirement, your kids are gone. Or if they've moved back in. You can't deduct him anymore. You don't have those deductions. If your business owner on you sold your business, you don't have those deductions anymore. You're not contributing money to Iris and for one case in four or three B's and T essays during retirement it so you don't have those deductions anymore. So I have proven mathematically many times that even schoolteachers, firemen, police officers who have a defined benefit pension equal to about 60%. Of the salary they were earning when they were about to retire. That's a lower income. But when you add social Security and the money they've socked away into forum in case for all three B's and and all of these different Qualified plans where you differ until you retire, and then you have to pay tax and then you have to take out required minimum distributions. People are flabbergasted because they're paying as much more in tax than they ever paid when they were earning money. Because they killed all the deductions. And so I've spent a lot of my career sort of curing that dis ease. And when you're not at ease, physically, we call that disease when you're not at ease financially, you're afraid. You're going to outlive your money due to taxes. Inflation of market volatility, those of the three sort of viruses that cause people to have a financial dis ease as I've been curing their dis ease for years, with strategies that will convert that money into tax free vehicles or your immune from the negative impact of taxes. And have inflation work for you instead of against you. I don't like inflation anymore than anybody does. But it actually helps me It doesn't hurt me. So I make people immune from not only taxes, but inflation eroded away their purchasing power during their golden years. And also market volatility because a lot of people suffer sometimes 40 50% losses in their IRAs and 41 case that are still sitting there in the market, and this happened in the decade from 2000 and 2010 many retirees or about to retire. People had to put off retirement seven years, even 12 years because They saw those nest eggs, dwindling value 40%. They dropped 40% twice in that decade, and at the end of 2012, they finally were back to break even with what they started with 12 years earlier if their money was in the market, okay? And so that's why I wrote that article. Clear back then. Well, since then, we've had Other articles, sort of. You know The Wall Street Journal, and I think it was January of 2017. I believe it, said the original champions of the Forum. One Kei lament the day they ever came up with that idea. Time magazine in 2008 said. Eyes cover story Why we should retire the 401 K and do something better. Instead, Stephen Gandel was the author of That article. And he said the 401 K unfortunately, is a financial flop. A rotten repository for our retirement reserves. And it's because so many people lost 40% for the second time in that decade in 2000 and eight in their IRAs before one case if they had a million bucks In the year 2000. They saw that million bucks dwindling, valued onto 600,000 from 2001 to 2003. It took four years until 2007 to make back what they lost..

What is The Allegory Of The Cave?
"Is stephanie. And this is talk tales and trivia the show where i talk about society culture pop culture and i throw in a little bit of trivia too so that you can stump your family and friends. It is so much fun listen here. I am mad researcher. When it comes to all those topics i research and the trivia that i give you because i want you to be enlightened and have trivia so that you can stump your family and friends and look really really cool while doing it so that is my goal and i love doing it for you if you are a first time listener here at talk tales and trivia. Thank you so much for tuning in. And i welcome you and i hope that you enjoy this episode. Sit back relax. Listen and enjoy as i tell you the allegory of the cave but first let's discuss something. What is an allegory. Well i know that you know you're smart. You're probably the smartest people. I know. But i just wanted to do this because i had to look it up to make sure i was right. It is a tale that has a moral of the story ending a tale that symbolizes something or has a deeper meaning than just the story itself. It represents something that is different than the story itself and that is exactly what this is all about well. The allegory of the cave was written by plato and the nine hundred ninety nine movie matrix. The question is asked what is real. Unfortunately no one can be told. What the matrix is you have to see it for yourself. I have a real example. An allegory written by the greek philosopher. Plato plato lived from around four hundred and twenty three b c to around three hundred and forty eight bc. He believed learning. Philosophy is to make you live and die well in other words. Therapy for the soul is philosophy without further ado here. I go with the allegory of the cave by plato. Plato wrote it to show the effect of education or the lack of it. The allegory was part of his book. Republic the story goes like this. The cave has prisoners. That have always lived there away from the outside world. There is no natural light and the walls are damp and dark anything. These prisoners can see comes from the shadows of things thrown up on a wall by the light of the fire. The cave prisoners get fascinated by these reflections of animals plants. People and other objects they assume these shadows are real. And if you understand them you will excel and exceed in life. That is what they believe. One day one of the cave prisoners is freed and realize when released from the shackles and the cave that these objects are real and not just mere shadows put up on the wall on the outside world away from the cave. He sees color and beautiful animals. Flowers trees stars people freely going about their business. He sees a son and all the other objects at makeup disclosure world. We live in the freed cave prisoner saw with his own eyes. What was reality. And it wasn't the shadows in the cave. This indeed made him very excited previously. He had been looking merely at phantoms images really now. He is nearer to the true nature of being. The freight prisoner wants to share what he has discovered with the remaining slaves. That are still in the darkness of the cave as he goes into the cave. The darkness is too much and he has a difficult time seeing. He stumbles about an almost appears blind. He then tells the remaining prisoners. What was outside of the cave. The sun the beauty the color etc etc. He tells them all the things that he saw and how wonderful it all was but the prisoners don't believe him and get very angry at the freedman and plot to kill him. They tell him he's crazy and violently resist while he tries to free them. The prisoners don't want to be told they don't know the truth but why it's human nature to believe what we have always believed no doubt from influences from our youth and the influences. When we're in vulnerable situations and the cave signifies ignorance. The prisoners are representing humans before philosophy before reasoning. The sun is the light of reason and the alienated of the returning prisoner. Is what all truth. Tellers can expect when taking the knowledge back to nonbelievers or the unenlightened. Those that have not devoted themselves to thinking investigating and becoming more knowledgeable. There are prisoners or unenlightened. People in our world right now. That perhaps don't want to know the truth. That is right in front of them. Plato believes we're all perhaps in the shadows for most of our lives and these shadows are in fact only images projected by our society and culture playing on the walls of our fragile and flawed mines. Individually it's not our fault no one chooses to be in the cave but that's just where we happen to begin. We are all starting from a very difficult place. But here's the thing. If you bluntly tell people they are wrong you get nowhere causing deep offense and you may cause danger to your own life right from the majestic therapy website. There's this plato's analogy plato. Introduces this passage as an analogy of what it is like to be a philosopher trying to educate society people are comfortable and their ignorance and hostile to anyone who tries to free them from it. The prisoners plotted and killed the one who escaped and went back to help them. Just like the athenians sentence. Socrates to death for trying to enlighten them. This is an allegory of the life of an enlightened and wise people who get rejected by ignorance when they tried to enlighten others for plato. Most of us live like the prisoners in the cave. The masses are stubborn and ignorant and dedicate their lives to pursue shadows images instead of the real thing. The shadows can be interpreted as status or wealth among other things as opposed to wisdom and knowledge. So what then is a solution to this problem to prevent this try. Very socratic method. Well again from the majestic therapy website. There's this the socratic method. It is not our fault to be in the caves. We all begin their the system makes sure of that from an early age. We take everything. The environment teachers parents say to us as absolute when we have questions too complicated for adults to answer. They encourage us to stop asking questions therefore killing our curiosity. You know it's true and it is because everyone believes that we are all genuine and true people. We are taken in by that thought at a young age for some philosophers. Ignorance is a sin and plato wanted to eradicate ignorance. But you can't just go around telling people they are wrong. Like in plano story. They will get offended and probably become very hostile toward you. So you don't want that for plato. The solution to this problem was to educate society carefully and philosophically. He thought the best way to do. This was a socratic method. This is a very subtle process. You don't force people to think read some books or lecture them on any particular topic you educate people without them realizing it. Plato believed that people could detect the errors in their reasoning with a little bit of help. You just need to give them a small clue a push if you will so. They realize where they are wrong. You can't teach anyone anything by making them feel stupid. Remember that according to plato. We all start in the same cave but we have a way out and that is through philosophy. The socratic method is a form of cooperative argumentative dialogue between individuals based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking and to draw out ideas and underlying beliefs. It's kinda like a mastermind. It's a very calming and gentle process with the socratic method. The teacher does not aim to force knowledge to the students. He acts as a mediator while having a dialogue with the objective that the student thanks for themselves. While the teacher facilitates the discussion.
Argentines bid final farewell to Maradona as national mourning begins
"Welcome into this special edition of espn fc as we pay tribute to diego maradonna. Who passed away today at the age of sixty craig burley with me here in the studio you can clinton joining us a little later on in the program to talk about what it was like to play against him. We also welcome to the show gab. Marcatti and argentine colleague from espn deported. Ricardo ortiz is with us rookie. I want to start with you to try out. Some how important. Maradona was for argentina. Hi guys pleasure to be with all of you. Maradona as the most important figure ever in argentina i. It doesn't matter what where when everybody would always talk about madonna. He's a legend. Now the idol and now a legend. I it's just unbelievable the morning and what people on the streets are doing in the middle of a pandemic they don't care if in argentina right now for example in the stadium of book juniors. There's hundreds of thousands of people probably a lot more tonight gathering where he played and won a championship. There's hundreds and thousands of people gathered around out of junior stadium where it all started and there's hundreds and hundreds of people outside of his house in a very poor neighborhood. Outside of one is ours. Quality fiorito the house where he grew up on with dirt floors lighting candles every street every corner every city. Every town people are out on the streets and tomorrow in the funeral it will be in the government's palace. They're expecting over a million people tomorrow in the center of one side is to say goodbye to somebody. Who's the most famous argentinian for us. And the most famous argentinian around the world ever so people are really suffering something that they knew it was going to happen sooner rather than later. What a player was. Yeah i mean multiple world cups. They played on one one obviously in a sex with not the best argentina site but he was amazing went to spain and eighty two and played in the world cup's twenty one year old a way in his shoulders. One so young at that point got himself sent off from the big game against brazil will even lend from the came back was even stronger delivered and one of the things that were thinking about is up until his death today. If he'd gone to any club to visit and the world the moment be the biggest clubs in germany. spain. Italy england every player. Some of these players are superstars. Everyone of these players would have wanted a photo. We've seen some of the pictures videos during the when he did go and visit Clubs over the past few years and an all these guys all the ones to do a photo. Welcome because everybody just know what a superstar boys and it could walk into any club under beg stars would all be over to say please. Can i have a full. Because that's how much people hold them and respect gap markazi with us as well gabe. Obviously we heard how argentina is hurting in particular as naples today. No question about it. People are out there on the streets in naples. Even though of course there is a curfew going on right now The connection that he made with naples obviously his adopted city and some might look some of the darkness in his life and pinpoint. That is the moment when when things started to go wrong for him by you know you. You speak to his teammates former teammates and dal speak of of his generosity. They speak about how he was always front and center always standing up to be counted. Random people on the street and to this day in the streets of naples. You'll find murals tomato. You'll find shrines to montana. He had a hold over a city city. That was when you arrive was was beaten down was was impoverished had never won a title There's a divide between the wealthier north of italy in the poor south of italy and they won two titles while he was their third one. They let slip away at the end. Still rather murky circumstances and he's the guy who changed all that he changed the inevitability of history. I think in the eyes of the united a lot of people and that's why he resonated so much she loved certainly enables but i think beyond that he loved being anti-establishment he loves speaking his mind. And i'll tell you what. Then i throughout his life you know. He had highs and lows he made enemies and then at times but in the end in the last fifteen twenty years whether whether it was pillay whether it was peter shilton he he came back and he made up with with a lot of the people he he fell out with and i was struck by something i read. I read somebody posted an interview. He gave back Back is a nineteen year old where he talked about how we talk about. Favorite actor was right on which i found kind of random but he talked about what is greatest trait was and he said i wanna be friends with my enemies and and i think in many ways that is how much of the world from a distance viewed him as as somebody who had the good fortune before he passed to go back and and and really rebuild all the bridges and all the relationships and and really leave us on on good terms with good terms with with very much. Everybody out there ricky. Take us through your point of view with regards to how you will remember him. Remember him of one of the greatest ever on the feel and also a personality so strong and controversial of it. Not many great athletes have done that that to be so much in spotlight for his entire life since since he was about seven eight years old when in argentina they started talking about him he used to play for the us and the red star is today's roca. Were people will gather out of nowhere. Because they knew there was a new kid that was unreal and this was way before cable internet and social media and he did all that before those times. Which is just incredible. He was just different than everybody else and that will remember him. Also as a great great captain whether you love or you hate him. He loved that. Argentinian jersey. More than anything in more than anybody. He was a great leader. He would push to the end. And that's why how he won a world cup. That's how we made it to the final and the second world cup. He played injured with his right leg in really bad shape his ankle and really bad shape. If you look at through the years he started at the age of sixteen Playing in first division and he never stopped. I think he could've played ten more years if he would've taken care of himself. I also remember him for that for not being able to really take care of his body and his mind. It just went over his heading. Never control himself. He went into politics and a lot of people hating him for that but he always spoke his mind. He didn't care. What where when and all. These things for maradona are just different. From almost every other athlete maybe with except mohammed ali that in and out of a field or boxing ring he just kept being on the front page of every paper and every newspaper that was ever printed. It's just unbelievable coming from argentina that i was listening to be there. You know you think of italian soccer in the eighties. I think he was one of the first ones who made people around the world. Want to watch league. Like the italian league just because maradona was playing he. He won napoli twice where they could have. Never even come closer to that. And i've been there many many times and it's just unreal today yesterday and thirty years ago for every day you can buy and maradona shirt. A lot easier than you canning. Senior member things ham seek e way. Anybody that played after him. It's just incredible. What those people thought and loved about the madonna to go back to you. What ricky said about. you know. it could've played longer. Potentially i looked after these body a little bit longer and his main but then the game didn't look after the maradona's back in those days and for louis people the younger generation watch lino massi. Do all these things and they are great. And i'm not taking that away. But he was doing that on. ploughed fields. right with pitches where the ball would. Something's wouldn't even bums are bubbled hard to control with defenders who were some of the roughest toughest one and literally wanted to snap them. It's not please legs. Because that was the only way to stop him and he had to deal with that every time we went on the field and still perform and some of the most wonderful and great goals. That will ever see you can imagine ho has body with the bean. At the end of a game ho the game was played and refereed and the eighty s is a complete contrast to the modern game and rightly so the way the current players are protected. He did not have the did not have that luxury and yet were still able to do that. Which is quite amazing. We'll say thank you very much to rookie for joining us Of course we just say out pouring of support. And this is what i had to say on twitter. What's sad news. I lost a great friend and the world lost a legend. There is still much to be said but for now make god give strength to family members. One day. I hope we can play pool together in the sky. Welcome to the show. Now someone who knew exactly what it was like to go. Head to head with maradonna international level in a world cup final and obviously on domestic level clinton's men into milan. When diego maradonna was. That is very best for napoli again. Thank you very much for your time. Just your initial reaction about very very very said moment. I think full entire world of football On monday madonna was Was an absolute exception. He was Probably for to take decades. You know the late eighties to the nineties. The most most Amazing play on the planet. He was a A genius he was i. I called him always artist. There's there's they did degrade football player. And then there's maybe one artist and diego maradona's was an artist. He what he did on the field full of creativity full of unbelievable to take knee was just an her off. And i had the pleasure to play many times against him with club team if it was stood guard and you if a cup final was germany world cup finally if it was Into milan the two games against napoli. And you just simple simply admire this guy and to have him. Passover early just sixty sixty years of age is a very very sad to pull unfortunately reality. You can just take us back to to that time. And just how big walls he while he was on his own level in. Oh they were great players obviously in the late eighties. Early nineties in italy Lauder mateos was one of the best players in the world goalie from boston. Right cut curriculum. Ow before i was maybe blood was was was unbelievable. Great players but he was an another level. He was just someone that that always made the difference and figured things out on the field that nobody else could figure out so you could men mock him. You could mock him his own older. You had no no idea how to mock him because he was just so gifted and so there was so much admiration for him and and outside the field he was just a simple very Normal person in a lot of people thought momma donna. All his Issues then drugs and other things. Li laid on was a very complicated person. He was not. Diego was a very down to earth. Very normal guy that just wanted to be with his friends with his families and What he has brought to argentina you will never forget that in what he brought to his especially to is not believer son of naples That people will never forget that. So imagine today You know how people morning in argentina and in napoli in italy and around the world is just a just a very sad moment. you're what was it like the reaction from the crowds when you were up against napoli and maradona's was on the board. I imagine just that sense of expectation must've being palpable even as a player. Yeah i mean i've been. I heard the news i was. I was really shocked as money. And and i posted something on my twitter side and i rarely actually post things but by posted something that i always thought about. Diego was his warmup routine depending on the music in the stadium started to do his routine with jogging and the ball around and that was made him. I think it has seven million hits by now. Life is live music. Dead really is jay. Go on monday madonna. He just wanted to be in rhythm himself if the music with the game and when you watch him then doing his walmart you you phase him actually as an opponent and you kind of have lost the game because you gave him so much respect you give him so much and because he was such a fantastic football player that your and that kind of transfer to the to the to fans in the stadium you know the even away games for him became home games because the people just wanted to see him. You know if you played in milan in front of eighty five thousand which is kind of standing up giving him standing ovations even if you may be lost a game or other games so so he was just a. It was a sustained unique over almost twenty years. And i always put him on the same pay leeann fronts. Bacon bala prior to madonna and then obviously came the next generations with Mac in our analogy. But but donna izzo in his own way. I simply unique. You mentioned the next generation yorgen and a lot of people may be seen. Maradonna play live the younger generation who are watching. Just talk about the fact that was. That was the protection. Was that from the referees. That maybe have now and you're playing on very different surfaces as well well in in in his days Obviously the fields were not good. The reveries didn't give you any protection. Ended defenders has killers. You know they just ditch us. I don't know how many follows a game run on madonna. Try to stop him all over two three defenders at the same time when all over him and he's still find solutions he's still found found a way out in score and scott incredible goals then so he took a lot a lot of hits And obviously his fame than along side in the spotlight living. The spotlight was not really his his wish. His wish was to be a normal guy playing his game. Making the difference on the field off the field he just wanted to be with friends and family but what he what he achieved because of those circumstances doing his playing days is almost impossible to achieve the interest thing as i saw clip from an of. You're on sky sports in the uk from a couple of weeks ago and it was moretz. You'll portrait was on former tottenham manager of course former argentine international news talking and they were talking about maradona. And he said we know we have all these stories about the off-the-field antics of recent years and even when he was playing but behind the scenes privately when he was with you or with. These teammates. Away from the glare of the media. He was a really genuinely warm individuals that wanted to help people the rest of as all a big story true for the newspapers but it was interesting portrait. He spoke so long layover in another thing. I think about because it's a different era to me but playing against the likes of the brazilian ronaldo the world cup and france ninety eight and seen what he can do with three or four plans around. You thought you had time in the corner on the over sudden four people and he was getting strike goal and we know how good he was. Brilliant for the hair would have been laid to play against off. That's where it was like playing against a great player. Light renowned on the other thing was empty before my oktay jokes. Gian-franco franco zola. He was going to be the air at one point. I believe to diego maradona napoli. No zola was a majestic player. But can you imagine having the way and your shoulders of go in there and potentially replace the quality of maradona. so it's unfathomable. Anybody can do that. But but no yet i think everybody of have over the piece of just we know there's lots of stories. We notice milan. But this was really apart from great. Football was a really genuinely warm guy. Last point again you do fail. That will never be anyone like diego maradonna again. I don't think so. Because i think diego maradona was was so unique because the way he emotionally connected with the people of his people and weren't as iowa's in argentina his people in napoli was so deep it was so warm and it was so i- amazing to see i traveled to and obviously go down to two zero so badly wanted to watch book. Juniors weevil played one eight. My life was when my list. And i walked through. Borka the the area around the stadium and almost every second house wall was a was a painting a tribute to jingle maradonna. I mean it's just what he left there with the people they were one they just just melted into each other and the same. He did in napoli for for napoli august. This is a today is very very sad. Sad day because this is this is her almost lifetime hero. I mean throughout generations. You know what he brought to napoli brought to the city of napoli brought hope he brought a smile. He brought excitement. He gave them pride pride. Because you know those years when he joined napoli was a big big Have kind of a disconnection between the south and off in italy and and he wanted to give these people real a real jojoba real pride. And that's what he did through the game of football. He used the tool of football to to bring these people up and and give them give them a quality of life to give them so much more than just his goals on the field. And that's what you see him. That's why i think devil be not a second minor donna coming up anywhere in the world he was. He wasn't one time off like michelangelo or fun. Goal or all these famous autists. He's he's one of them. You can kinsman. Thank very much sheriff supposed to be an outpouring around the world on social media messy writing a very sad day for all argentines and football. He leaves us but does not leave. Because diego is eternal. I'd take all the beautiful moments linked with him and wanted to take the opportunity to send him condolences to all his friends and family. Alrighty
Standing Rock With Cody Two Bears
"So I'm really looking forward to today's guest cody to bears. For as long as anyone can remember, America has been trying to come to terms with questions of race and equality. Much of our focus has been on the African American community and for good reason. However far too often overlooked and forgotten are the people whose ancestors inhabited this majestic land for generations before the first white man set foot on the continent. Today I am talking with my friend, cody to bears and the Standing Rock Sioux. Cody has been at the center of his people's battle against the Dakota pipeline which served their sacred land. So here today, and then there's my pleasure to have cody to bear and to talk his people and share his story. To Cody. Welcome. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you Erin it's it's a pleasure to be a part of your show. Very excited about this discussion and also thinking me also like to thank you for a lot of the work that you have done in year history in your past of protecting water rates in this country in the world it just to bring up a the voice of the voiceless for them to stand up for what's right is very, very important than it falls right in line with their native American heritage and traditions and customs that we still follow today. Well it's it's been my privilege and to have an understanding of. which so much of a cause possibly forgotten about or moved away from or for many reasons thought it was being in fact, protected our land, our water and it hasn't. And so can you give the listeners background please and tell us about your people and and everything that has been happening with you up at standing rock. Yeah. So just to let you know I'm still very young man I'm still thirty five years old of course but. Yeah I've I've learned a lot along the way at the same time I got the privilege and honor to be able to. Serve my people from. Twenty down twenty thirteen to twenty seven in the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council So as one of the youngest elected leaders are standing rock, Sioux travel history at that time. So I got to serve four years from community in the crazy part of that whole situation is that. In two, thousand, thirteen, my first year in office we got. President Barack Obama to come standing rock in my community to in cannonball, which were encampments the protests all went down at the northern border of our reservation boundaries. That's the community that I represented for years for my tribe and now what a coincidence off fast forward two years later. Brock Obama had to make a tough decision to try to protect. Our water in our rights and Bustan for indigenous issues while he came previously two years ago to our lands and promised us that he would do what he can to help our people. So what a coincidence that now four years that we definitely hadn't standing rock during that time Since then I've been out of politics outside of twenty seventeen I told myself you know. Like to protest about it, talk about it the environment but you know it's time to start to be about it, and so that's why I started my own initiative on my own nonprofit called indigenised energy, which currently now we have the largest solar farm on standing rock three miles away from the pipeline crossing in north. Dakota which is the largest solar farm in North Dakota to date. So we'd we did remarkable things two years after the pipeline and now the protests. So we're doing what we can try to live by that and. Keep pushing to go hundred percent renewable within reservation boundaries
PS5 - Sticking With What We Know
"Next gen consoles, you know, we're weeks away what I'll have to get mine. Yeah, I'm seeing she had nowhere. What is it the 7th, is it the 7th for Xbox one that like the 17th or PS5 November something like that, right? I thought was like the 10th. I'm going to be the 10th and 19th. Either way, I know Xbox is releasing first. So Xbox is releasing first. And then PS5, you know, I had hoped for a better turn around for Xbox. I mean the hardware is there. I think they're catering really well to a bigger fan base or not bigger fan base, but there are signs the Xbox real quick. What's 12 + 5/10 Xbox series extra two days that I remember I think in the last episode we talked about it was like a 9-day difference. Really? Yeah sure is always on the 12th. I don't I mean I I can I'm like 99% sure there was like almost a nine-day difference when you talked about it last week right now. So sure PS5 came out with a rep at first so then obviously Xbox beat them by trying to come out sooner. So then I guess PS5 try to counter counter punch that all right we can yeah, we can move it up to 2 days after I suppose game. I guess yeah, and so so I was hopeful, you know, these numbers are preliminary there's no guaranteed not guarantee, but there's this is not saying that PlayStation is one or or anything like that. It's these are all just preliminary numbers. I was figuring Xbox would have done better. But you know, I've been wrong before apparently 80% of the next-gen pre-orders have all been PS5 pre-orders. So, you know, you take the whole all the pre orders that have been made 80% of those pre-orders are for the PS5 off-shore. I mean I get you know, the the PS5 was it all by that not really. Yeah. It was a very popular PS4 is very popular console. They're riding a hell of a generation with the games that they had, you know, and it's it's funny. It's funny to show to kind of contrast last generation to this generation. So many people went PS4 because on paper it was the more powerful console. Like that was the swaying fact for a lot of people was that when PS4 was coming out. It was like well on paper it's the more powerful console. So I'm going to get that that was yeah and on paper the Xbox series x-ray more powerful console this generation, but I think PS, you know PlayStation Sony they kind of shattered that mold a little bit by just delivering absolutely amazing game exclusive strictly a PlayStation and that's what's retaining a lot of those players even though they know Xbox is more powerful. Yeah for me. I went PS4 because it looked a lot better on paper, but I wasn't that's the only reason I didn't really have any games. I was locked into or dedicated to but same time I end up having an Xbox anyways, cuz all you guys my friends are on Xbox and they stuck with Xbox into the next-gen that's like the only news and eventually did wind up getting an Xbox so I could game with friends but with cross-play it's not really a big deal anymore. But off. Yeah, I went was PS5 or PS4 because it was good on paper, but now coming up I can see why people are going PS5 not for the specs, but just cuz they built such as a great repertoire of games that people know they want to play when I came into the PS4. There was nothing that has like, oh I need to play this but now going the PS5. I know you can't kill zone I guess coming into the PS5. There's multiple games and count on multiple hands here. If I go. Can you play these so I need a PS5 going it's true age. Think you know that's speaks volumes to the idea that it's not just the power, you know, and we we've said this in every episode that we've talked about next-gen leading up to 10. Mm. Yeah, the Xbox is more powerful. But if they don't have the games to sway the consumers it's not going to matter. So at the earliest Shadow yet kind of get some if they bought some studios then have games that could be good exclusives. I mean Bethesda has plenty of options if they'd go Kanto exclusive to Xbox obsidian. They bought which adapter roles they have logged games. They're so they're they're buying companies. They're they're laying foundation for possibility of overtaking the maybe the like a majestic palm. Yeah, like it's not going to be until later on. So they're they're they're doing their best to trying and I don't think anyone. I don't know. I'm very excited for the Xbox line up in this. Yep. Nation but I wasn't I you know, I'd be lying if I said that Xbox is going to take it right from the gate. You know, I just don't think anyone really thought that they would I think mid-season. Like I said, I feel like halfway through this generation. You can see a big sway a big shift. So I'm I'm kind of like looking forward to that see if halfway through these consoles or something just flips around but yeah, so Xbox is trying but at that point I'm a lot of people are sticking with you know, like you're showing but not telling what not like they're going to stick with the PS5 cuz they know they have it where Xbox right now just kind of it's a lot of talk them. Yeah yet. So yeah stick with what they know. No,

"Been lifted. And so those people can start as they say, re populate. Which, of course, is an easy thing to say. And dirty. Yeah. What? What was the difference or what? A day. The difference is the wind started to die down. So right now I'm on Silverado Canyon Road nearby Majestic Canyon, which was actually added to the evacuation order list. Part of the reason I came up here and even up here, which is a high priority zone. There's not a lot of active flame. I'm looking at a sprig of active flame just across the canyon from me right now, A helicopter's been circling above it. I've got some hand crews that are down there on the ground thinking outline the dozer at the top of the hill here, and it's actually if I had a good camera in and find you how to take Take great pictures. This would be a fantastic picture to take but a CZ. I looked down at the base of where the smoke is rising. There's also a crew right up against it, trying to lay down, lay down some water on it. So you've got a lot of attention being paid anything that seems somewhat Combustible or an active flame. We don't see the same sort of smoke we saw yesterday and we certainly don't see it advancing on neighborhoods like we saw yesterday because it looked wild. Last night at 10 o'clock I was watching on TV. I mean, it was it was No damage done to anybody's homes there. Yeah, they did a good job stopping us and this is also I think a testament to brush clearance right And we saw those flames not only advancing toward neighborhood yesterday, but also, you know, following any of the streets or avenues that had had anything growing alongside or in the medium. And just kind of ripping straight on down there, but not working their way onto these subdivisions air into these subdivisions, in large part because the developers have gotten very good at building them and building the fire defense into the actual architecture of the neighborhood. And so that gives firefighters some extra room to breathe and to keep the flames down and to keep any embers that may drop in that they.

"The majestic Rocky Mountain. This show is about empowering you people and organizations that want to optimize their assets. Minimise taxes and empower their authentic well. As you know, I have a YouTube channel You can subscribe for free every single day. I post an answer on in depth as er to a specific question that has been asked numerous times in the previous two or three months. And recently I couldn't believe how many people were asking. How do I know if I'm on track for retirement? Well, I need a little bit more information to be able to answer that question. Simply put your nest egg must earn more yearly. Then you need to live OK? And so let's talk about this because a lot of times when people approach retirement They're they're concerned that they might outlive their money. So there are a lot of considerations that you need to take into calculate in your income. And can you make it Can you retire? And the biggest factor is is the rate of return you're earning. Maybe. But what about the impact of taxes on what you're earning or what you're going to be taking out of your savings and also inflation, the cost of living because what I call the tax and inflation power curve, usually Cuts people's purchasing power in half every 7 to 10 years and taxes continuing to go up that that gobbles up at least 1/3 of people's income. In other words, If you had a $1,000,000 nest egg, and you needed $100,000 a year or even if you only needed 50,000 year on top of Social Security, and maybe a defined benefit, pension or something. People think. Well, golly, I can get by on 50,000 year. Well, folks in about 7 to 10 years from now, at the current true rate of inflation. When you take into consideration medical cause prescriptions and all kinds of things, you will likely need 100,000 year to buy the same gallons of gas and loaves of bread haircuts. Golf green fees that you could've bought for 50,007 to 10 years earlier, and then another 7 to 10 years. After that, you will need 200 thousands. He doesn't go up 50,000 every 7 to 10 years. It doubles and doubles and doubles. So you're going today? 200,000. If you live more than 22 years, you you might need for 100,000 by what 50,000 but 22 years ago. And this is what happens, the fastest growing segment Of American society today or those people reaching over the age of 100 chance that you or your spouse if you are a baby boomer couple, making it to age 96 is highly highly likely. So if you retire around your mid sixties, the chances are one of you will still be alive 30 years down the road. So if inflation is only 5% the cost of living will double twice during that period. You're going to need 400,000 by what? 100,000 But when you first retired So inflation is a big factor. But if taxes keep going up in a lot of people thought they were going to be in a lower bracket when they retire, and they're not because they sort of get rid of all their deductions. They pay off their house that kids are gone and and you're not contributing money to the IRS and for Owen Kay's Congress keeps raising taxes so people off times are in his higher higher tax brackets. As they were ever in and taxes are going to go nowhere. But up Wherever I speak in America, I asked audiences how many of you think in the long haul Tax rates will be lower. I get nothing but crickets when I say how many think they're going to be the same? 01 or two hands out of AA 1000 in the audience. When I say how many think they're going to be higher and a sea of hands goes up and then I ask Then why are you continuing to postpone by putting money in tax deferred IRAs and 41 K's Because 91% of Americans are still doing that on Dawn Li 9% pay tax and accumulating money tax free and let's say a Roth or my favorite vehicle. Like all the Laser fund, which has six advantages, Ross only have two. And I'll explain that if you stay with me here, but see Ah, lot of times people and they don't realize that the taxes are going to continue to go up. To fund the irresponsible government spending printing of money initiatives that seemed to be popular with people. Oh, let's Let's have this pay forward. Let's have free college. Let's have Medicare for all. Where's the money gonna come from? And so we have to make sure we have a strategy that makes us immune from taxes. Well, that's actually pretty easy. You convert to tax free. A lot of people don't understand this, they will. What's tax free? See, tax deferred is just you're procrastinating the tax and used that you were going to be in the lower bracket and you're not. And so that's what he roads away. About. 1/3 of most people's retirement income is paying taxes during the Golden years. The harvest years I've often used this metaphor of a farmer. Buying his seed in the springtime. And if you were a farmer, and you bought your seat, and he didn't have to pay tax on what you paid for the seed and you planted you cultivate a year a gate and you work really hard and later in the fall, OK, this is life we're talking about. In the fall of life. When you retire Now you sell your harvest and you have to pay tax on what you sell your harvest for that is a traditional area for one k way back 30 years ago. The premise was O. You'll be in a lower bracket. But see, that has not been true for more than 25 years. The financial services industry finally admitted this A few years ago. Oh, that's been the wrong advice, but we don't want to say it too loud because we don't want to be sued for not being a good fishery. See a judiciary supposed to look out for your best interest. You can't believe how many financial advisors who put themselves out as judiciaries, and they can see that you're going to be in his higher higher tax bracket when you retire. But yet they continue to advise you to defer Defer, Take rmds. My heavens. That is not smart. You need to do a strategic roll out and get the tax is over and done with and then reposition the net after tax money into something that's going to be tax free from now on. And when you ultimately passed away of blossoms in value tax free and reimburses you and your spouse, your family for all the taxes you did bay during the roll out. But every time we do this analysis generally, people will pay far far less in tax by getting it over and done with in today's lower tax brackets. See your current tax bracket is likely the lowest bracket you will ever ever be end. So what should you be doing? Your money will never be worth more than it is today. Because inflation's going to continue to We rode away purchasing power. There's certain things you need to do to make yourself immune from taxes and inflation. The third big danger..

"Resilience is a powerful thing that we can all learn, and you don't have to be born with it. You. Do have certain strengths within and certainly one of those might be resilience. But it doesn't have to be. Resilience can be cultivated. By believing that you can cope with hard things that you can handle hard things. That you can recover from major setbacks and that things will always be better in the future. You can do many things that are within your control to move forward. So the first resilient skill, I would advocate or suggest focusing on. Is that belief that that you can control many things and the power to move forward and cope with things is within your control. Secondly. Another resilient skill is connection. We seek positive relationships to build us and support US and create a network so that we have people around us to keep a strong in the face of challenges and obstacles. So creating connection learning how to be connected to other people, those are skills. A third one that will help us with resilience is self awareness. Self awareness can be. Learning how you're really feeling. Sometimes, we be totally out of touch with our own emotions. Especially if what we've gone through especially difficult for us. We can do that by talking about what we're going through. Seeking to make meaning out of the experience. Talking about surviving it what it means to be on the other side for us. And this might be a new term job crafting. Job Crafting has to do with. If you're in what might seem to you to be a mundane type of job, you can take it. You can kind of bring your own values into it, and you can sort of make your own even when the job itself hasn't changed a whole lot. Self awareness about how we're being impacted, and what our experience is like can really build a lot of resilience. So, far I've mentioned locus of Control Connection, others and self awareness. I'd also like to mention creation. I believe creation is a resilient skill. This is where we intentionally. The positive emotions within us. We might be feeling incredibly devastated very down on a regular basis. There are times when we might even want to see a therapist and get additional help. We can intentionally activate positive emotions and sustain those emotions over time, even when difficult things are happening. The more we share, those feelings share the thoughts were having and choose that more positive spin on things and help other that are going through difficult times. The more were able to create a new future different than what we have experienced, or we are experiencing right now. We can fill that with purpose and meaning. Perhaps! Maybe we can even consider ourselves on this mission to help other people who are struggling. And then lastly..

"Employing you're strengths, gives you every possibility of feeling better becoming more resilient and also being helpful to other people at home and work and in your community. Think about what your strengths are. You don't have to go out and pick a new strength or learn something totally new to have these strengths. These are part of you. They're just part of who you are ten throughout your life, character strengths will continue to emerge. Likely, they are theme that has been pretty consistent for you. I took the V. i. a character strengths assessment, which you can find linked on the homepage of my website. Dr Be Coach Dot Com. I took that about a year ago. Just the other day I took it again. I thought this would be interesting. I wonder if the same strengths will show up. I was actually quite surprised to see the top five strengths listed again, and in the exact same order. They showed up a year ago. That's especially surprising to me because there's a lot more stress in my life right now, a lot more uncertainty so much more has happened recently with the pandemic and a lot of other issues so. If these were relative strengths. Perhaps they would change. They'd be in a different order. They'd be kind of showing up differently or some other strength might come into play. All five of my strength, top strengths showed up again exactly the same. Now, some of my middle and lower strengths were in different orders, because I'm simply using them or not using them or moving things around and emphasizing different approaches, I might take, but those core strengths that the I character. Folks who created that study those strengths they talk about. As signature strengths. Those are the ones that didn't appear to change. I wonder what that result would look like for you. If you take your va character strengths assessment, and take a look at it and get to know your strengths a little bit and then couple years down the road. Take that assessment again. I wonder what that would do in your life. The interesting thing is. We all are so very different in our strengths. In our capacity and our personalities. There's essence of you that can be broken down, categorized, listed and described, but the essence of you as descriptive as we might be, cannot truly captured in words. You are one of a kind. You are absolutely unique, and that is a beautiful thing. I heard this story recently about a sculptor. I believe in India.

"The majestic Rocky, This show is about empowering you people and organizations. I want to optimize their assets, minimize taxes and empower their authentic wealth. Recently on my YouTube channel. And if you're not aware I have a YouTube channel, and it is under the name of three dimensional wealth, and I release an answer to a specific question. Every single day, these questions have been asked anywhere from 30 to over 300 times a month for the last several months. And so recently, I recorded a Siri's of 21 questions that I answered regarding my favorite money Accumulation vehicle and ofttimes. People say, Well, how does that differ from, like Whole life insurance? Well, what is my favorite money Accumulation vehicle? In the more than 46 years of being a financial strategist, retirement planning specialists bar None. My favorite vehicle that is performed of the best. And what do I mean by that? It is been the best investment. But it's ironic because the financial services industry cannot let you call it an investment. And I'm fine with that, because investments typically will be taxed sooner or later I raise and for one case, it will be taxed later if you put it into traditional ones. Roth IRAs and Foreman K's or tax on the front end and tax free on the back end, but they're taxed on one end or the other. Now, my favorite vehicle allows you to accumulate your money tax free and then you could access that money tax free, including all the game for the rest of your life for retirement or for Real estate management or business capital management, all kinds of things that this will knock the socks off of a 5 29 college savings plan because I had the benefits of a 5 29 plan in the whole bunch more It will knock the socks off of Ah, Roth IRA or foreign one cake because it has the two benefits of a rock and four additional benefits that Ross do not have. Why isn't my favorite vehicle Because people Khun sake away like $500,000 like they did 30 years ago, and the $500,000 doubles about every 7.5 years? 500 grand doubled to a 1,000,000 then in the next 7.5 years, a 1,000,000 double two million. And then that two million double four million and another 7.5 years and that four million double eight million and so at the end of 30 years on initial investment of $500,000 is now worth eight million bucks, generating a 10 per cent payout. Which is 800 grand a year of tax free income for as long as you live. Show me another financial planner vehicle that does that show me something that you could put 125,000 and it doubles 22 50 then to 50. Doubles 2 500,000 and 500,000 doubled to a 1,000,000 a 1,000,000 doubles to two million. In a 30 year period. And then that two million Khun generate 200,000 year of tax free income vers long as you live. Show me another financial plan or vehicle that could do that or something that you could put 500 bucks a month into and over a 35 year period. It will be worth more than a 1,000,000 bucks tax free. If you double that $1000.

"Plays! The angels thing 'cause weekly girls yes. It's not the smallest girls 'cause lambs. Like the first through third grade girls. There that they come in the glitter and the gold in the wings and everything right and they just see the. And then That's supposed to be our impression of angels right so. Our current impression of angels is. Sadly deficient. So the author of Hebrews. I think he's assuming that he's writing to an audience. That has a very high esteem of angels, but he still goes on to. Make some really awesome claims about angels, he says. That? He makes his angels wins, and his ministers of flame of fire, now that in of itself sounds awesome, but when you put it in the context of the. Old Testament passage from one oh four. It's awesome. It's like it's just this majestic picture of galway writing his chariot and. Of course, angels are the ones who are attending him. Angels in the Bible are called a host. and. Growing up in. The King James World I didn't know what that meant. I just thought. It meant a bunch like a lot of them a host of of angels. but I have. Heard it explained that. That actually is referring to an army. Angels are our army. An army of angels is who. Sang to the shepherds that. Jesus was going to be born. There are instances in the Bible of angels carrying out God's judgment that that is one of the main tasks that they have. You have instances where God wants to wipe out one hundred eighty five thousand soldiers in one night, and he uses one angel to do that. Every time a person, a human being is confronted with an angel in scripture. He's terrified right. He's on his knees. Cowering before this creature and the angel has to say, don't fear. I don't think that touch gotta right. In the way they portray angels just. Because, I don't usually cower in fear before kind British women that I know. And so I think that we need to use this passage to correct are thinking about eight in order to elevate our thinking of Christ even more. Okay so now that our understanding of angels has been corrected slightly. Hopefully massively. let's get into the last point of how crisis better than angels and this one. I think we'll surprise you because it definitely surprised me and to say it. It sounds like wait a second. That's backwards. Jesus is better than the angels because of his. Humanity. So. Let me show you what I mean by that this. This was a passage I just had a soak in this when for a while because I thought. Where is he going with this, but it starts off. A quotation from Psalm Eight. Okay and so I think we need to understand some eat a little bit, and we know this song I. Think we're familiar with this home. This is the one he starts off Lord Lord Majestic. Is Your name and all the earth?.
