The Positives and Negatives of Investing Your Money in gold
"The positives and negatives of investing your money in gold by Robert Farrington of the college investor Dot Com. Do you remember all the hype around gold in the not. So distant past from two thousand, seven to two thousand eleven. The value of an ounce of gold went from about five hundred dollars to eighteen hundred dollars. If you would have purchased gold in two, thousand seven, you would have nearly quadrupled your investment in just five years. Now, that is one heck of an investment. Around this time I also pronounced that you shouldn't buy gold and it received a lot of criticism in more recent years. Gold has settled back down to around thirteen hundred dollars and sometimes slightly less than that. So hopefully, you took my advice, but the question still remains in the back of people's minds. Would it be wise to invest in gold right now? At, its current price gold is worth five hundred dollars less than its previous high. So one would think that an increase in value could be on the horizon. Here's what you really need to know about the pros and cons of investing in gold. Pros of investing in gold. In my opinion, there are three major pros when it comes to gold investment one, it's equality hedge against a down market to it will still have value of paper currency inflates and three. There is an apparent upside to its value versus years. One Gold is a quality hedge against a down market. As we all saw in two thousand seven when the stock market took a dive everyone began putting their faith in gold instead with the higher demand in gold and with a limited supply. The price of gold went up massively within the next couple of years we may witness another steep downmarket, which may again increase the value of gold. Two Gold we'll still have. Value Paper currency inflates. Local currencies constantly fluctuate against foreign currencies. It's the way of the world policies are in place to hold currency steady, but they're not always foolproof once a currency begins to make a downward spiral it can be very difficult to stop severe inflation, which of course, decreases our purchasing power. Is often the more solid option for currency since there's a finite amount of this precious metal if you have gold, then you're likely to hold on to more of your overall worth than someone that is put all of their faith in the banks and paper currency. Three, there is an apparent upside to the value of gold. As I stated before gold was once at eighteen hundred dollars but now rests at value of less than thirteen hundred. If there's a slight blip in our economy that sends fear through the nation, then gold could easily spike back to eighteen hundred mark. It no longer seems far fetched because after all the value has already been there before. Cons of investing in gold. I used to be a huge advocate of gold and silver investing but my opinions on this investment technique have changed largely because of these cons. One Gold has a terrible historical return. If you went back two hundred years and put ten thousand dollars in gold ten, thousand in bonds and ten thousand stocks, which of these investments would come out on top. Well, if you're smart, you would probably not choose gold to be the top investment but the astonishing part about this is how poorly it actually performed versus the stocks and bonds. Here are the values of your investments after two hundred. Years. Old Twenty six thousand dollars bonds eight million dollars stocks five point six, billion dollars. Based on the historical returns gold is a lousy investment. To Gold is worthless if things get really bad. As a pro, we stated that gold is a great hedge against the dollar inflating, which causes us to lose our purchasing power. This is true. But what if the currency becomes absolutely worthless and we all have to resort to trading goods to survive what value is gold at that point? Well, let's see me certainly can't eat gold. So it is of little value for that purpose and you really can't make anything easily out of gold either. So there really isn't any value they're pretty much at this point your gold nuggets in bars are only as valuable as Iraq because he might be able to throw it at something and kill it. Three gold only earns you money when you sell it. The biggest con of investing in gold in my opinion. Oh and Warren Buffett's is that it produces you absolutely nothing when you own it. If you want to grow truly wealthy than you want to buy an asset that produces a passive income while you own it so that you can then by other assets that make you even more wealthy. Warren started doing this as a boy. When he bought a hunk of land, he knew the land would increase in value but the truly great part is investment was that he could earn an income each year from the local farmer that wanted to rent his land after a few years of Rental Income Warren Kundun reinvest his money into even more land and do this over and over again, this method allowed him to buy assets that gained in value, but also gave him income while he owned them.
Texans Bid Goodbye to the LuAnn Platter: Lubys is Liquidating
"Wondering, I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this. Friday. September eighteenth some sad news from my home state Texas. Luby's is shutting down on the surface. It's another casualty of the pandemic. Now, if you're not a Texan or haven't spent much time here, Luby's cafeteria chain and an institution. It's an understatement to say that for decades it's been beloved at one time. There were more than two hundred. Luby's Cafeterias in eleven states. Now, there are fewer than eighty left all in the lone star state. The restaurant chains shut its doors back in. March the loss of Luby's goes far beyond the financial implications for the business itself significant enough and even beyond the jobs of its workers the liquidation of Luby's marks something of a cultural shift one that began years ago. The birth of Belugas we know today is the subject of many. Texas. Squabbles was founded when Bob Lou be opened a cafeteria in San Antonio in nineteen forty seven as the company's corporate history claims or did it get it start even earlier with cafeterias run by Bob's Ancestor Harry Lubi? In Twenty Nineteen Texas Observer Writer Andrea Valdez felt the question was so vexing that she wrote I leave the Arcane Texas history quibbles to the more about Asli knowledgeable of our readers. Regardless Luby's was one of many postwar restaurant institutions that sprouted up to serve suddenly sprawling suburbs in the late forties and early fifties. Once upon a time, the announcement of a Luby's coming to town conferred to kind of signal that this place is on the rise in meant heaping helpings of chicken, Fried Steak Square Fish Fried of course, creamy macaroni and cheese and Jalapeno corn bread all at modest prices and serve with a bit of Texas style. You want more you got it. How's your mom and him with Y'all be able to come back next. Sunday after church you get the picture. Its old fashioned meals, liver and onions and Jello cubes became both famous and famously addictive. It was comfort food for sure. But in a fast changing ever more complex world that bright red Luby's sign was. A comfort in another way to sort of reassurance that simple things endure friendly servers, sensible prices, and the luanne platter half an entree two sides in a row. When a character named Luanne platter appeared on the TV show King of the hill. It was one of the coolest knowing winks ever broadcast in the lone star state. Some might say. The fact that you didn't have to dress up for a Sunday dinner at Luby's made it even cooler until Luby's wasn't cool anymore. By the nineteen eighty s he to become the cool equivalent of driving a fleetwood Brougham something grandparents did. By the two thousands Luby's was suffering at the hands of fast casual chains serving fresher healthier food like mad, Greens, and chipotle. By last year, it appeared that Luby's could be on the way out in June. The pompous family which owns Luby's which in turn owns fudd truckers thirty store hamburger chain attempted to sell it. The takers however, last week Luby's announced that it is dissolving the chain and fudd rutgers to the pompous family plans. To return the money to investors, it could amount to some one hundred million dollars. For the moment, the website proclaims that they're still open. So. Perhaps, some might want to run in and get one last Luanne platter while you still can nothing lasts forever. Alas, Lassen it's too bad that in the case of Luby's most people are okay with.

"Now, where another record rise in daily Corona virus infections has brought the country's total case count to above five million it's adding more new cases a day than any other country in the world fueling concerns about how the economy will continue to cope with the pandemic official forecasts predict a ten percent contraction this year the government has allocated tens of billions of dollars to help battle the economic crisis but there's some head-scratching today over a new multi million dollar contract that's been awarded to Indian conglomerate Totta the BBC's around Mukherjee. What we're looking at is one hundred, seventeen million dollars to refurbish the existing parliament complex. But this is part of a larger two point seven billion dollar government project to give a face lift and modernized old colonial era government buildings in the heart of Delhi even when this plan was initially announced, which was in October last year many questioned the need to spend so much at a time when India is just coming out of its lockdown batting, a rising number of one thousand cases growing at an alarming rate, the economy has contracted by the worst in decades. Where does the government going to get this money from as you say why? Hasn't the government put this plan on ice of the government says that look this parliament complex dates way back to the nineteen twenties now since then various parliament constituencies have increased and therefore so have the number of parliamentarians and the staff there simple argument is this complex isn't big enough. The also interestingly want to build despite twenty, twenty two so that it can coincide with India celebrating seventy five years of its independence, and where's the government GonNa get the money to fund this project that is million dollar question in the same week on Monday. The government asked for parliamentary approval of to infuse nearly two point seven, two, billion dollars to. Help the ailing banking sector here in India deal with the prospects of bad loans which are likely to rise. So the message that the government has given is that we are cash strapped, but the question is, where are you going to get this money from for this kind of luxurious project at a time when India is battling a national crisis, more questions than answers then the BBC's democracy in new. Delhi. Thank you. Thank you.
Conviction politics: Floridas disenfranchised felons
"Joe Biden took to the campaign trail in Florida, this week. As a rally for Hispanic voters Mr. Biden emphasized seemed like a eight point. Getting people out to vote. So please. This election. Make your vote her. Through your vote, your voices her. Make a plan to vote has been pointed out. Make your plan to help your community for. But the very act of voting in this year's election has become contentious. President trump has been railing against mailing voting is having little evidence of fraud this whole ballot system where you can send it in. and. It's not even requested. We're not talking about it solicited. They're unsolicited ballots and they're sent in is very dangerous or our country and in Florida a fight over voting rights for former felons could see hundreds of thousands of people disenfranchised. So. In Two thousand eighteen voters in Florida approved a constitutional amendment allowing felons who had served their time except for murderers at certain sex related offenders to vote in elections. After that amendment passed Florida's Republican legislature passed a law saying, that's fine. They can vote but they have to pay back all the fines, fees and restitution costs of their incarceration. John Facile is economists. Washington correspondent. So that's the sort of thing that sounds quite reasonable. Right if you stole one hundred bucks from someone, you gotta pay back what you stole before you can vote but Florida's criminal justice system is unusually reliant on fines and fees from offenders. So you have people who had been convicted of felonies poor people who had to pay fifty dollars to get a public defender or one hundred bucks for some sort of fee to file a complaint. then. You also had fines levied on them that were quite heavy. So I spoke to one woman who was convicted of her part in a fraud scheme that she says was unwitting, but she was ordered to pay back fifty, nine, million dollars and no. One's ever going to be able to do that. I spent time with another young man who was convicted of a felony while he was basically just out of school and it turns out that when he went to registered to vote, he owed four thousand dollars to the county where he was arrested nobody had ever told him. That and other courts allowing this law to stand the courts have let it stand on Friday the last court in Florida weighed in and they've let the stand the court said the fines and fees were part of the criminal sentence. So they couldn't be said to a fully completed their full sentence until they had paid off everything they were told to pay off. So it looks as though almost eight hundred thousand people who thought they would be able to vote may not be able to vote and so is the supreme court likely to weigh in at this point now again? It's probably not going to go to the supreme. Court again, they declined to hear it in July, before that last appeal they declined over the strong objections of Justice Sotomayor who accused her colleagues of continuing trend of condoning disenfranchisement that's in Florida is this happening else? Well, the rules regarding where and how felons can vote changed dramatically from state to state you have some states like for mountain main where people can vote while in. Prison and you have some states like Florida used to be where if you've been convicted of a felony anytime, you never have the right to vote. So it's a Patchwork of laws regarding felony and franchise, but the trend has been over the past decade or so to loosen restrictions rather than strengthen them. But as we've seen in Florida sometimes that involves bats lighting sometimes the loosening isn't as loosened practice as it appears it should be. Felons aside, how easy or hard is it in general for people who exercise their right to vote in America? It's harder than I think it should be it's harder than most people think it should be it used to be the case that the Voting Rights Act which was passed in nineteen sixty five required jurisdictions with a history of voter discrimination. To submit any changes to how they conduct elections to the Justice Department in two, thousand, thirteen, the supreme court basically gutted it. The Voting Rights Act they said that requirements should no longer apply since then around seventeen hundred polling places have closed and previously covered jurisdictions, the largest numbers were in Texas Arizona and and most of those places are in heavily minority district. There's also the problem of long lines often what I found that I was recovering Super Tuesday in Texas before everything shutdown is that in suburban precincts. White it was much easier to vote than in inner city precincts, which were which were heavily African American of the Tino. In two, thousand, sixteen around half a million voters failed to cast ballots at their polling places because of problems at those polling locations. So I think people tend to think of voter suppression as as physically keeping people away from the polls that really doesn't happen. What does happen is that the exercise the franchise is likely to be much more onerous if you're a non white than if you're white, are we seeing any of those problems this round this time round for the election that's coming up. Yeah. We saw them in full force in Wisconsin in their primary earlier this spring in April. Shortage of poll workers as much of America does as result, they're only five precincts total in the city of Milwaukee, which is the state's biggest city in which had one hundred, eighty precincts in two, thousand sixteen. There are a lot of places that are really concerned about having enough poll workers to have all the polling place that should be open poll workers tend to be retirees, which puts them at high risk of Covid, and so a lot of them understandably don't WanNa come out and and sit in the crowded place for long hours. But there's a fear that this shortage of poll workers is GONNA lead to a lot fewer polling places in there should be. Perhaps. It's a naive question but why would anyone want to make harder for people to vote? So there are those who say that because Republicans are so dependent on older white voters who tend to be the most reliable voters that is in their interest to make it harder for non white and young voters to vote. Donald Trump. When he was talking about expanding postal voting essentially gave the game away. He said they had things levels of voting that if you ever agree to it, you'd never have a republican elected in this country again. So it seems as though Republicans rather than trying to appeal to as many voters as possible regardless of race color creed or. Are really trying to tailor the electric to best suit themselves. What about voting by mail something that would seem obvious into pandemic but that's been hugely divisive. This round hasn't it. Yeah Donald Trump has been inveighing against it, which is odd because there's a ton of research that shows that voting by mail tends to improve turnout but not for any particular political party more recently, he has been encouraging his supporters to vote by mail I. Think he has got nervous that if Democrats vote by mail and huge numbers and Republicans don't vote by mail at all then this may lead to an imbalance in the results that doesn't favor him. There have been polls that have showed that as many as fifty percent of Democrats, more plan to vote by mail whereas only one in five Republicans do you can imagine it sort of pandemic situation in red states where Republicans don't want to go to the polls but think that voting by mail is corrupt is now trying to walk back some of the damage you may have caused. How do all these trends impact the election this year? Do you think John? I think that between the president inveighing against the election warning that it's going to be rigged concerns about foreign interference. There is an alarming number of Americans people on both sides of the aisle who thinks that this year's election won't be free and fair I. Think there are concerns that people may be less likely to vote and that once they vote, they'll be less likely. To accept the results of the elections that is going to lead people to lose faith in democracy itself for those who do want get the vote out what are they doing about it? Well, people can check their registration status early, they could make sure that their friends and neighbors are all registered. I think there's a lot of worry among Democrats because traditional touch points that. They use to register voters you know the DMV or college voter registration drives those aren't happening now because of the pandemic and there are fears that young people are not registering at the numbers they should be. But for Florida's felons, there have been organizations that are working to pay off fines and fees almost four million dollars have been raised so far. Bloomberg who had been. Running for president said, he will spend one hundred million dollars of his own money to help Joe Biden win in. Florida. I think there's there's a hope that some of that will go to paying off fines and fees, but unfortunately, it looks like whatever happens not everyone who thought that they would be eligible to vote will, in fact, be eligible to vote this fall in Florida.

With the kids and the spouse at home for months, remote workers are struggling with all that new found and occasionally unwanted intimacy so more and more of us are building tiny offices in our yards. are yards that's right and while the smallest of them may be no more than one hundred square feet or so they can be pretty plush while some handy. Do It yourself or designing and building these standalone getaways themselves others are purchasing stylish prefabricated tiny buildings and that's boosting growth for some existing shed companies and sparking some entrepreneurs to start new companies to fill the sudden demand among them modern shed studio shed, and the one with our favorite name. Some elbow. Room I mean for crying out loud elbowroom room right first. Let's get one thing out of the way. The opportunity to build a separate fully electrified heated and air conditioned office in your yard is a privilege that many just don't have for one building an extra room in the yard requires you to have a yard begin with still it's typically far cheaper than adding a room to your house.

Bloomberg Comes Up Big with $100M Cash Infusion in Florida
"So this was another big story from over the weekend was the announcement by Mike Bloomberg that he's going to spend at least one hundred, million dollars in the state of Florida to help Joe Biden win the state. This Washington Post story says that Bloomberg made the decision last week after seeing those numbers on Florida in seeing that Oh may be Biden's a little underperforming there. It's a little closer than we thought official. Voting starts on September twenty fourth in Florida. So the need to inject real capital in that state quickly is an urgent need. This is Bloomberg Adviser Kevin Cheeky he continues Mike believes that by investing in Florida, it will allow campaign resources in other democratic resources to be used in other states in particular the state of Pennsylvania. So there was always this fear of, Oh, where's Bloomberg's money? He got to speak at the convention, but he's not gonNA fork any over even after he said, he made this promise to keep his campaign employed in put all this money into help be trump. Personally, I was really never worried by didn't didn't really come after Mike to personally at least for too long also because they were both from New York I'm sure trump gave Bloomberg his fair share of grief during the couple of terms that Mike was the mayor of New York. City. You can tell when Bloomberg speaks whenever he goes on TV his ads were also pretty devastating, but you can just feel the vitriol contempt for Donald Trump Mike. Bloomberg is obviously a big money guy. You know he's a billionaire but even he trust Joe Biden more than Donald Trump So that should really be a warning to everyone and as Rick. Wilson always says Mike Bloomberg has more money in his couch cushions than Donald Trump has at all I think alluding to the fact that Donald Donaldson, shady loans, and he's probably not even a billionaire really when you get down to went off topic but thank goodness that is a breath of fresh air some good news for Joe Biden on the money side to with an even better August and by the way, the Biden campaign pointed out that since Calvin Coolidge in nineteen, twenty four, no Republican has won if they don't win Florida. And this year, it really is all about Florida because of trump doesn't get that one he's got to pick up a couple from either Minnesota Wisconsin Michigan Pennsylvania Arizona in those are looking shaky I mean that's really really generous because he's behind in all of them. So He needs Florida to have any chance and that's a little note to yourself if you're watching. On election night tour as the votes come in the days after in the mail. Well, we're GONNA know pretty quickly because Florida starts counting there's early. So we'll know on election night mostly with the vote is going to be. So a Florida starts going Biden were going to be in really good shape. That's when you know. Okay we might have this one.
Been Caught Stealing
"Thankful faults jewelry and fine art. Maybe a casino carefully organized plans by people dressed in black turtlenecks with lots of cool gadgets close calls. What we remember as the daring heist of one of the world's most famous paintings. was really neither of those things. The heist wasn't particularly daring and the theft of Leonardo DAVINCI's Mona Lisa. Wasn't even noticed until well after it had happened. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. These days the Mona Lisa also called in Italy login Kanda and her famous enigmatic smile hang in a prominent place in the Louvre in Paris. It holds the Guinness World Record for the highest known insurance valuation in History at one, hundred, million dollars in nineteen, sixty two. So. That would be about eight hundred million dollars today. Over six million people go to see it each year. It's so popular that you can't even snap a quick Selfie of it without having a few dozen other strangers, hands, and cell phones in the frame. This popularity certainly wasn't the case when the painting was I hung in the Leuven eighteen o four or for the century subsequent. Neither was popular with critics when the artistic elite who often relegated it to the low end of DAVINCI's work it was basically just another painting. It was so unsocial in fact that it took the better part of twenty four hours before staff even noticed the painting was missing in Nineteen. Eleven. A handyman named Vincenzo Perrugia was working in the museum and he simply waited in a closet until after the museum had closed. Tuck to the painting under his smock walked on out. He was unwittingly aided by a plumber also working in the museum who unlocked a for Peruta when he found himself stuck inside. The police were called and they searched the museum. The only sign they found the Japan Kanda was frame laying on a staircase. Though police did find some twenty one other paintings in the museum. The curator's had previously reported missing. The. Search went citywide then national then international. Ships were searched before they left France or after arriving in their port of call. A reward of over half a million dollars in today's money was offered. The Mona Lisa's picture was printed in newspapers all over the world. It became a of Mona Lisa Mania. The theft of this single painting served a spawn multiple criminal enterprises. People on the wrong side of the law knew that those with more money than morals would want to buy. LEGITIM- Kanda. A pair of confidence men from Belgium hired a small army of forgers to make quality fakes, which they then sold to select around the globe. They made sure their buyers were unlikely to ever meet and rested soundly knowing that no one would let on that they had purchased the most famous stolen painting in the world. Though today, one of them would probably take a selfie with it. The huge reward and the number of fakes in circulation meant the police were inundated with leads. For two years they searched tirelessly. But Fruitlessly The sixty man strong force even interviewed, Peruta Twice. But decided, he couldn't be the criminal mastermind they were looking for. Not only did those two years not yield the Mona Lisa the police didn't even find the forgeries. The head of the Paris police retired in shame. Did, peruse, you get an enormous payday for the stolen painting. People were soon to learn that he didn't steal it for money. When ferruccio approached museum in Florence to sell them the painting, the museum's director called the police instead. After. His arrest Russia's stated. I worked in the Louvre making frames for paintings stolen from Italy by France every day I pass login Kanda and swore I would return it to its rightful home. He seemed convinced he would be heralded as a hero. This was sadly not the case but the Italian courts were sympathetic giving him only a year in prison for the world famous theft. These days legit Kanda sits behind more bulletproof
Nikon Z5 Review
"So, one of the things that attracted me to the Nikon see five was the nick or twenty four to fifty millimeter f four to six point three Zoom Lens that you can get bundled with the camera. Now, both together are one, thousand, six, hundred, ninety, six dollars. So that's not exactly pocket change, but it is less than some of the other full featured full frame cameras on the market. What I really liked about this compact twenty, four to fifty millimeter zoom is that for a full frame camera, it really is compact. In fact, it has this mechanism that reminds me of a Pentax Lens that I have that we new twist it all the way it actually pulls all the way into the body. The knows all the way into the body, and then when you want to use it, you have to twist at the other. To release the lands and then it does at zooming thing from there. So the Nice thing about it is that when you're packing it or putting it in a case or something. It really is fairly compact for a full frame Lens Ns alight as well. So my thinking was that this tandem would be a good full frame option for hiking and travel. So I decided to put the theory to the test with eight mile hike to crystal cove in South Lake Tahoe. Now, before I, tell you how that went let's take a closer look at the specs for this camera. And again, we're talking about the Nikon is e five murless camera. Okay. Here we go. The first one is a four point three megapixel seamus sensor with x speed six processor. So. That gives you ISO sensitivity. The way up to fifty one, thousand, two, hundred. Now they say in their marketing materials quick shooting at four point, five frames per second. Most of us would not think as four point, five frames per second as fast bursts. Okay. Not Anymore not after shooting with some of the cameras that we do. So there is the first area where you go. Okay this is not top of the line, but it's probably fine for travel for landscape. You know for hiking for things like that right it's a really nice censor by the way I love the image quality that it produces. Now, the auto focus system has two hundred, seventy, three selective points. In. As a hybrid system that uses both face detection and contrast detection methods and I would say that the autofocus is quite decent every now and then I was surprised when it took it a second to figure something out that didn't seem that hard to me but overall pointed I pressed I captured and it went very well my hit rate was quite high. I was only using however the twenty four to fifty millimeter Lens. In fact, I'll talk a bit more about that in just a few minutes. Now, it has a nice three point two, inch, one, million LCD screen that you know goes up and down right it doesn't swing out it's not fully articulated, but it has the up and down articulation which I actually prefer for most things unless I'm going to be using the camera for video for photography I like the up and down tilt a lot better the screen. Is, quite. Nice, it also is a touchscreen and you can operate the camera from the screen itself if you wish, and then has a three point, six, nine, million dollars, electric viewfinder, and it is a quite good I, like the view, the electronic, find her a lot. It's interesting how often though when I'm out nature I, find myself shooting via the LCD screen as opposed to the electronic viewfinder. Just because I, like those different angles I really do however when I'm doing electron viewfinder photography and I'm looking through that. From. The Nikon I like it. I like what I see I like the readouts on the inside. It's really easy on the eyes and quite pleasurable. Now one thing that we do get even though this is not top of the line. Camera in the Nikon lineup is we get dual SD memory card slots in their st memory card sauce which. Some of us, prefer to the the newer standards and they both both slots support you H S too. So they are high speed and there's two of 'em there and I would say that as one of the really nice features of this camera.

"Sport leagues in the world, there is a team with an that is offensive to a significant number of people. Wise that being. What would you change it? It's just a nickname and here we. We aw thirteen fourteen fifteen years later only now, Simeoni Way Greg, because the sponsors they've got involved because money talks only now is Dan Snyder looking to make the change, is it? Am I being cynical? Is it just down to the money or is it? Would you like to think more than that and given? What's been going on over over recent weeks and months actually there has been a bit of self awareness in a reawakening in terms of the the moral. Issues with with a team named the redskins. That's a great question. I think it's mostly it is you know about the money and I think a lot of things in sports. You know when we get older, we maybe we get a little more cynical. I don't love in any less. You don't love it any. Let's listen probably. Don't love it any less, but we realize sometimes what athletes take play for. Look at look at everything. They're trying to do in North America right now, and it's A. It's a trickle down effect in terms of the teams. The League needs to play to fulfill the TV. TV. TV networks content. The players want their cash. They want their paychecks I. Don't blame them for that you know, go get yours while the thing here with Daniel. Snyder is as you said You know the fact that it took to major corporation Fedex would whose names on the stadium and Nike To. Basically a twelve hour period last week to really push back on the nickname it's it's tricky. Right because you want to give them. Credits and I'm sure there's people that want to say. Where have you been as you said the last decade that gate and a half in terms of being active on this and look, we'll never get unanimity. We will never get. Get that on what offends somebody never so what Washington Daniel Snyder of done before is they found native activists. They've taken them two games. They've made a big deal at when they're on the road to play the Vikings one year, and they found people from the state of Minnesota. Who are native American who got in front of a microphone and said? We love. The nickname doesn't bother us in the lease, but we will see in this now with covert. Are we like well? This doctor said this you. Doctors are on the planet. Who couldn't possibly agree on you know a a vaccine could possibly re-treatment. Possibly agree on any aspect of this so? I you know you can't cancel everything you've. A small minority allowed minority are offended by but study after study not seems to have shown that natives in this on this continent people of indigenous heritage. They say it's a slur. You'd never walk up to somebody on the street and and call indigenous person or native, American or native, Canadian in my country. That were you wouldn't do it I'm not even sure you'd use cheese, and that's the big thing that will go. There are chiefs, but you wouldn't call somebody that is a nickname, and that's that may be the next moment of reckoning for the NFL believe it or not, as Dublin Back Patrick Mahomes team. Yeah, and that nickname so. I'm not a hundred percent. Sure that the logo is changing in the least I think this has look. We've a twenty four hour news cycle as you know. What sort of hot one week is not hot the next week and we stopped talking about it so i. think this is given. Daniel Snyder at and the Washington team some ample time to wait this out a little bit and come up with something that would be more of a proud name. Chicagoblackhawks said today I saw this morning. They're not changing their name. We haven't heard from the Atlanta Braves. We haven't heard from although the MLB looking at it, obviously the Cleveland Indians. So you know, I know that this is going to be as much of a domino effect in changing the logos at there's tons of college teams. Tons of high school teams on this continent that have been steadfast some changed some of not but that. Yeah The Washington nickname I'm I'm Sir sure? Although I saw entered Brandt differ yesterday on twitter I'm sure they won't play another. Another game even if they can start the season on time in September I feel confident that they'll keep the logo and they will get rid of the name Ron Rivera. Wants it. Players wanted it's uncomfortable for players to even talk about Rivera said he would be awesome if it could be done before the start of the season on the money tip, and it's the point you.

The two weeks. That design a game plan, so yeah, the offensive coordinator means so much, but yeah like there's just no other team outside of the chiefs. Now I could look at and I think you're you're you're you know you know it elaborating on it that the concept that I don't know how you don't think them in for multiple super. Bowl wits. It's a really hard thing to do because every time somebody gets. They're looking at Cam Newton team. Look at that team that went to San, Francisco, Santa Clara and play the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning's lasts deprecate. Cam Newton's fifteen in one. He's A. He's a unanimous NFL MVP. They've got leuke three on the defensive side. They've got weapons of Gut. Receivers have very good defensive line. And playoff game since then, and obviously you know the story for Cam who who predicted that five years later that sort be run out of Carolina. You know with no real great alternative as a reference This isn't like Tom Brady taken drew bledsoe's job or Steve or Steve, young. Joe Montana being pushed out the door to Kansas City so Steve Young. So. Yeah, it's a cautionary tale to start thinking that you know this quarterbacks going to keep doing this. Rogers never getting back to a super bowl. It's been ten years since Aaron. Rodgers has played in the Super Bowl. When that comes out of my mouth, I kinda even don't believe it but Patrick. Mahomes is going to win. Multiple Super Bowls air for any read I. Don't know how he doesn't. Exciting Times. Let's move on stories. I want to get into and I'll get a wwl back again to lead into the next one. At Short, yours how great handle What should the eagles do with e Jax? What he said was inexcusable in something should be done, but I have no idea what he's of course referring to Sean Jackson the Eagle in his second spell team still. If not at. In the top roster in his position, certainly, as he demonstrated last season, when he was fit an elite player, but he is in all kinds of trouble for posting content on his social media channels that contained anti, Semitic..

"Chiefs have missed that tear because of the pressure. It's GonNa. Put on the rest of the roster. You look a quarterback and I know. People will say well. He said he won one super bowl. And that's the the Green Bay. Packers of have really let down a generational talent. You look about like Aaron Rodgers I think this is true. Russell Wilson as well. The seahawks are able to cultivate something if I talk to nothing. Out of a weekend collection of pieces around it that rely on having an elite array of plays around them all the time, because the nature of how they play the game and oversee the caliber, an an ability, but definitely fits into that so to to to lay that out that even if he's. Receiving core, even if what is around him in three four or five years, time is the same level that it's at now. It's not gonNA matter to the chiefs with Muhoza. That back as much as it would many other situations, he should be able to elevate others. That is the big thing. is that elite quarterback should be able to you. Know Tom Brady. Brady obvious example you know. He got play Randy Moss for a few years, but but the guy made stars of Wes Welker, and now not knocking how hard west Welker worked or how efficient he was. Danny Amendola or Julian I'm not knocking those guys, but I don't think even e- inject the truth serum as I like to say into the Julian elephants in West. Do they go to Cincinnati and play with anti doll. You know if they go to you know. Arizona and they're playing with. Kind of decent Carson Palmer that's not the same as playing with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning's receivers over time though he had some great ones. Agassi, Marvin Harrison Reggie Wayne but there's a lot of guys that got rich year after year. Because Fayed Manning was throwing them. Touchdown passes no question. Five hundred million just over three that acted in the three a, but a lot of people saying that it probably would lost the ten years the ten year contract, the probably look at reopeing renegotiating it. midway through is the is the perceived wisdom.

"Pay I heard somebody say overpay for great town at the flip side of that is saying well look without his ability without he is the real deal, but it's not the overpay you count overpay because you immediately put pressure on the front of the rest of the roster. You won't have the weapons around him and you spend money on players like Sammy Watkins. Actually it doesn't make sense to go this high where you on the bones deal. I I'm inclined to think that Kansas City on and off. The field made a good transaction, but you're not wrong in that the dollar amount unless the CAP keeps rising doesn't have to rise exponentially in once. We're through the pandemic I. Think we don't think the NFL is a is a stock that you wouldn't. You wouldn't be selling NFL stock right now. There's a lot of other leagues I. Don't think you'd sell NFL stock think you'd sell primarily stock, but the you know. The sports sports in North America that are really struggling to potentially restart NBA. You're not sure you're not sure if they can't pull this off. Salary cap goes down NHL. Salary caps going down anyway because of missing half the regular season. So. That deals got some potency, but no listen you can pay to. You can pay an elite quarterback too much. New Orleans drew, brees went and got all the money. He could a lot of those years in New Orleans dimming. They were bad teams, so remember they had a few seven nine eight eight teams in a row before the last few seasons post their the Super Bowl win over Indianapolis, but they had to constantly reshape that roster to to make the money work for word your, brees was at. At, so Kansas City made an interesting call here I don't think the off field stuff can be undersold enough. This is not this is the most personable star athlete that we have on our continent. North America. This is the most practical athlete in terms of you want to sell something. Patrick Mahomes can sell it to you. There are no negatives. There's no you know You know red. XS against him. He's a guy that can sell anything and everything and I think the chiefs while utilizing that way. Jersey sales that you can patrick like you lose Patrick Mahomes and no, it was never getting to that, but locking him in for as long as possible. You know it's a massive commitment, but it's a big commitment on the hoses part. There might be somebody soon enough in three or four years. That makes a higher. Than Patrick Mahomes but I'll tell you I'm sure you'll get to. The everyone said to me in this the one thing that drove me crazy about the last forty eight hours. Everyone said you know this is good news for Dak Prescott. This is great news for the Shawn. Watson those aren't those aren't Patrick. Mahomes those layers are not patrick behold so i. don't think it is phenomenal news. You know spoiler alert. I don't think it has anything to Jerry. Jones is not going to take a call from Dak Prescott Asian and go. Mahomes, money's going to hang up laughing. They're not the same. He's a very good quarterback. He's a top ten doctoral quarterback, but not the same player net I am so glad she said that because I completely agree with that, take completely agree with it. The very fact that Mahomes is demonstrably.

"All right. Everybody good news for Democracy Wisconsin. A court of Appeals. There has rejected a voter. Purge of two hundred nine thousand people eat a three judge panel unanimously rejected a lawsuit filed by a bunch of conservative assholes who argued the purge should go forward ahead of the two thousand twenty election for not confirming their addresses. Voters needed to confirm their addresses with the State Election Commission. Not surprisingly more than half of the voters lived in districts. The Clinton won in two thousand. Sixteen and a plurality of them are voters of color. Trump won the state with fewer than twenty three thousand votes. And this is two hundred and nine thousand voters the case will likely be appealed to the State Supreme Court but hopefully not in time to impact twenty twenty.

Post a federal judge in Idaho has voided nearly one million acres of oil and gas leases in federal lands in the western United States saying that the trump policy that limited public input was arbitrary and capricious this is a huge win for environmentalist.

Caputo the attorney for the group earthjustice said in an e mail that the administration officials almost treat the public like an inconvenience that might slow down or get in the way of them passing out special interest favors to their friends in the industry that is antidemocratic and it shows what they really think about the public. It's also illegal. Which is one of the reasons they keep losing in court Trump's bureau of land management issued a memo in January of two thousand eighteen speeding-up leasing streamlining environmental reviews and reducing the amount of time that the public comment publicly in protest arrangements to drill and nearly a year ago trump lifted Obama era protections.

"Manned, of course, if you wanna make sure that you're up to speed with every last nugget of soliver goodness going out to our website sign up for our newsletter of. Of intent we have not sent one of these out in months, but but I have seen suspicion that once we get things going with shirts and a few thing a working on in the laboratory will be sending that out a few times here over the course of the next couple weeks and months, we're getting closer shirt number two, by the way. So we're hoping for late spring early summer rolling everything out with that. Hopefully with our friends at cotton bureau, so tonight show first of all is there any news you want to discuss I would love to talk about the sweetie effect in. Okay. So I sent you this this morning. Okay. Powerpoint leaks from guess, Clemson, this is her wits intention. Yeah. Perfect story for podcast. But okay. So let's back up even more devastating has earned himself a ten year ninety three million dollar. That's the reported new deal that he has earned for himself. And it's hard to argue against the results and to the place to. Which Clemson has climbed in the college football university defending national champions, recruiting like crazy, the raising money like crazy. The enrollment is way up at Clemson like what happens at most big schools when football is you know, in front of millions that there's an excitement about being part of something around the program around the school. So things are very I believe is the word the bullish right now and Clemson football. Yes. So Nick Sabin is no longer the most well paid per year head coach and jimbo's close. But it's it's dabbled Sweeney. And he's making about nine million. When you when you consider all of the base salaries and bonuses and incentive structures about nine little over nine million dollars a year for the next decade. And has I think it's what a two million dollar on top of his normal. Buyout buyout. Yes. He goes Alabama. And that goes down by half a million a year after a couple of years. So that. That is that is the new deal and people were sort of reacting with that's no money to pay the players no money for this. And that got money for that. And what happened was the department went to the Clemson board per saw this on football scoop. I don't know where exactly a broke. So I apologize broke on the athlete. It was on the ethic. Okay. Good to know. Good people over there at the ethnic and PowerPoint slides leaks of the presentation that the department gave the Clemson whatever board of trustees directors. What have you so good? This is perfect for the underlying our work is the Sweeney effect. That is just when revenue for football is up revenue for donations is up enrollment is up and just ratings and everything is it's a nonstop upward trajectory for Clemson. And there's one man and one man only who can be traced back to this is not necessarily. False. But while the Sweeney effect is what it says along the bottom of these slights. I am excited to use this in perpetuity. Yeah. On this podcast when anything goes, right? We're going to attribute it to the Sweeney effect. The other thing that I should add as part of this. And I promise we're going to move on to the actual content of our show this evening you, and I had what I would scribe as a rather productive and fruitful G chat and earlier today because as you know, as many of our listeners know PowerPoint slides look about eighty percent the same there. Few bullet points in their star wipe here. And there about eighty percent the same you've seen on you've seen them. All you can recognize other PowerPoint sue make PowerPoint presentations for your do I eight eight job. Yeah. Yeah. I do how often. Pfefferle often I'd say, oh, man. That's a that's a blind spot for a couple of times. I I don't think I've ever for a serious situation whenever I've had to pitch or present things.

"million dollar" Discussed on Outside the Lines
"Hundred thirty million dollar deal. Cannella Alvarez had a three hundred sixty five million dollar deal with dissolve on. And the fact that Mike trout smash that as much as he did getting another sixty five million dollars plus on top of that just shows how good he is. This is a deal. That's good for both sides. He gets to be the highest paid athlete ever. The Los Angeles angels gets keep him in their uniform for the rest of his career. Okay. So I think the question a lot of people wonder about because of what was going on with Bryce Harper and his sort of recruitment of Mike trout, what impact might Harper and that whole situation have had on this deal. Not a whole lot trout is almost in a universe of his own. We're talking about a player and no disrespect intended to Bryce Harper. Mike trout's on a completely different level. This might be when it is all said and done the greatest baseball player. We have ever seen through his age twenty six season. He has more wins above replacement than anybody in history. That includes Babe Ruth that includes Ty Cobb that includes Mickey Mantle I could go on and on about all of the great players throughout the course of history. Mike trout has been better than all of them from the start. And so the Los Angeles angels knowing that they have Shohei Ohtani knowing that nineteen year old Joey Dell a star in the making outfielder who's going to be with the team at this point next year. And all likelihood I mean that is quite the outfield to form and quite the core for the angels to have and build around. So the other side of this though, is you look at trout and not to. Cash shade on him at all. But this is a man is only playoffs wants. No. He's only been to the playoffs. Once they've never as as I remember never wanna play off game. I mean, how does this kind of contract hamper their chances to win in the future? Or affect know. I'm not sure that it does. And here's why the angels have a three billion dollar television deal. Local TV over twenty years that is filling their coffers with money. They have stadium..
"million dollar" Discussed on Journey to $100 Million
"Is you have. But I bet it was not a one hundred million dollar mistake. Several weeks ago when we were thinking about going to a hundred million dollars, and we had just kind of announce it to the world. And maybe even after a couple of podcast episode, come Allah. We were like, yeah, we're going to do it one hundred million dollars. I thought well what's gonna actually take to get two hundred million dollars? Like how much do we have to sell? How fast we have to grow? We're going to try to do this by twenty thirty. What does it really mean? As far as growth are we talking about tripling the size of the company every single year doubling the size? And so what I do. I sat down and I created a complex spreadsheet. And in the spreadsheet, I said well at the time where it will million dollars a little bit more now, but then it was one million dollars, and we had to get to one hundred million dollars, and we had eleven years, and I brought that up in two months SO, I figured well. If we increase by this much every single month, and since this recurring revenue issued add on top of itself. So let's say we bring say a thousand dollars in the first month will and the second month we bring in thousand dollars again now up to two thousand dollars the third month we bring in one thousand dollars third time. Now, we have total of three thousand dollars. There's a cumulative effect over time, and we had eleven years times twelve months, and that's too much math for me to do right now. I don't know hundred thirty two that's close. If that, correct. So we had a hundred and thirty two months to actually build up this revenue. So I laid out this big spreadsheet and. And I did that we needed to bring an extra twenty six hundred dollars in new monthly recurring revenue every single week in order to achieve a hundred million dollars at the end of that time period, and I actually publish that information. I think I did a podcast episode about it. And I was very proud of myself or calculating that. A some point. I went back, and I looked at it. And I started to kind of question the logic. And I realized I had made a mistake. I had made a big mistake. What I was doing was always adding up all of the money that we would have earned between then and twenty thirty so summing it all up equal one hundred million dollars. That's a lot different than earning. One hundred million dollars in your twenty thirty which is really the goal. The goal is not to earn one hundred million dollars in the next eleven or twelve years. Then there's a big difference. Matter of fact, in order to earn a hundred million dollars over the next eleven years. What that means is into thirty will be an eighteen million dollar company. So think about it this way say like a million dollars in two thousand eighteen two million two thousand nineteen four million two. Thousand twenty cetera Oli up to twenty thirty eighteen million dollars. When you add all that up for every single year. That was one hundred million dollars was the answer. I got and it was wrong. It was a big hundred million dollar mistake. When I realized that and recalculated the numbers were huge. It was something like there was so big that even save the file it was like fifty five thousand dollars a week in revenue or maybe per month. It was a big big way bigger number than we could achieve saw realize that model was wrong. I had made a huge mistake would also realize that is going to be very difficult for us to grow by having a linear amount of new revenue coming in every single week or month. The reality is there's going to be stacking affect if we bring in twenty five hundred dollars per week in new month recurring revenue which is about what we're doing right now that won't be acceptable in five years in five years, and he's be ten or fifteen or twenty thousand a week. The numbers all the numbers are going to get bigger, including how much we bring in. There's also going to be an inorganic component buying companies and foreign them into digital. This is way more complicated of a situation than I originally suspected. It's not gonna be just bringing the same on of money every single week for the next eleven years way, more complicated. I made a huge mistake. I don't know what the answer is yet. But I know that it's not a steady stream of income is going to vary over the years. Thank you for listening. I hope you heard something you can implement in your
