Do a couple ross You're going to be over so you have to do what's called a backdoor roth bu- but on both of you do roth and that'll just about get you there. That's going to be very close to your fifteen percent. The backdoor roth works. Is you get with a smartvestor pro. The hope you get that going But all you're doing is you.

"Newsom office craft law protecting pacific gas and electric after the company's crimes killed eighty four people. That's a reference to the campfire from two thousand eighteen which took all those people in the town of paradise in case you're wondering what the four number is. The whole report apparently is over. Fourteen minutes long we excerpted about four and a half minutes of it because that's how he can fit it into a segment and talk about it. What you're going to hear revolves auratum around to bill. That was signed by the governor. A couple of years. Back abe ten fifty four. We talked about it at the time. Some people call it a utility bailout. Bill what they were trying to do was figure out a way with these fires to keep these utilities afloat because the claims would swamp them under and they'd go bankrupt fact there was much talk about. Pga going bankrupt. So we'll play you what we've got here for you and then we'll talk about the Allegation the governor newsom. We've told you many times before pacific. Gas and electric has been a big contributor over the years together. Newsome's campaigns and in fact use that back door method to contribute to gavin newsom giving money to his wife's nonprofit foundation which makes documentaries about feminism. That's kind of their way of also reaching out to the governor and greasing greasing up so they guess he get they get favorable treatment while they burned down half the state this crap about behest payments as back doorway. Brian government officials with these nonprofits. We've talked about many times on the show. I let's play what we have maybe ten. You are a killer corporation. Do you understand that. That means something. In terms of with regulatory agencies. governor's offices with legislatures. Has it really meant something has pg reputation as a convicted killer actually earned it stricter treatment from the people in charge of its state monopoly license. Our nearly three year long investigation reveals the opposite. The state government did more than just help jeannie avoid accountability. Governor gavin newsome's administration responded to genie's crimes by offering the company reward and protection. The governor doesn't wanna talk about it. He's declined or ignored every interview request. We've sent dating back to his time as governor elect and the state is still rewarding genie even though pg already under more criminal investigations. Cal fire personnel on the site brought to his attention and then our attention what appears to be a broken jumper. I one of our transmission towers for starting to more fires that burned homes. The zog fire killed four people. Even after those fires california's state government gave genie. This and officials state safety certificate. This is more than a label. It's worth money. Big money the safety certificate. Pg and the two other big investor own power companies tap into twenty one billion dollar state insurance fund half paid for by utilities and half paid by the customers through a surcharge on power bills for twenty years utilities in the fund can start a big fire negotiate a settlement with the victims and get this state fund to pay those victims out. Ab ten fifty. Four is the state law that created the safety certificates. Signed by governor gavin. Newsom who benefited from more than two hundred thousand dollars in political donations from pgn Have you reconsidered giving the money back to genie that they contribute to your campaign. My actions at the suggestion is somehow contributions changed. Actions just passed the law. The governor's pointing at gave pg safety certificate for making a plan to be safe but it didn't actually require pg any to be safe. That's not how the bills started. We obtain documents. The public rarely gets to see draft versions of the safety certificate bill weeks before it was revealed to state lawmakers these documents show. The law was crafted by o'melveny and the law firm governor newsom hired to represent him in genie's bankruptcy payment records show that law firm charged the taxpayers three million dollars during the six months when the law took shape financial firm guggenheim also helped create. The governor's new law billing taxpayers. Three point seven million dollars. The state has a whole agency dedicated to writing bills. We asked the governor why he hired private firms to do it instead. But the governor's office didn't answer so if this had been in place during the seventeen eighteen and nineteen fires. pg shareholders would have been on the hook for about four billion dollars not for the tens of billions that they've ultimately ended up paying and that's what the certificate gets yes they could cause another campfire potentially and not have to go bankrupt. This yes in a written response to our reporting governor. Newsome's office pointed out the law required to spend money on safety upgrades money that a federal judge says the company should have spent years ago instead of draining at safety budgets to pay out bigger profits. Newsome's office ignored all our specific questions about the much bigger amount of money that law gave to the safety certificate program and the government has made it more of a priority for pge anita. Come out okay. The victims of p janie. And why why. That's from abc ten. Now what's important in that or this concept of safety certificates which comes out of this assembly bill ten fifty four it says if pg needs power lines spark a fire while it has that certificate the company's presumed to have acted reasonably which means it can bill customers for the cost the wildfire damage unless it challenged your proves the company acted unreasonably fake cover. It is there's been getting these safety certificates but look around the state and see what's happening in the dixie fire is probably thanks to. Pge it is five hundred thousand acres and they admitted it started when a tree fell on one of their power lines because they board game they hold up. I've got the safety certificate. It's exactly what it is. They get exemption and the state has gotten has given them to certificates since the campfire despite the fact that p gene has been charged with more crimes and his under a new homicide investigation. For the zogg fire last year. And this is interesting. A former director of the california public utilities commission alice stebbins. He says she signed the first certificate and said i did not want to sign this. The bottom line is i was told to sign it. You will sign this period. A wonder who told her that. I trusted my governor. I trusted my commissioners and that was a mistake. She has since been fired and filed a wrongful termination suit against the state government. She was trying to investigate what to y. Two hundred million dollars was missing in the public. Utility commission books here to earn the safety certificate. The requirement is only the pga show four things on paper a wildfire plan an agreement to work on company's safety culture Something called the company's safety committee and board level reporting to the california public utility commission on safety issues. Well that's sounds pretty easy and pretty simple. Doesn't it it. it's all fake. It's fake cover and then heard newsome's law firm drafted the right solutions. Offer made over three million that.

Unconstitutional thing. i know it's gonna get struck down by the courts but because it takes the courts time to litigate that measure. That is going to give me additional time to do all these other things i need to do. That's about as openly cynical. Move as i've ever seen in american politics. It has not democracy dying secretly. There's dumped about crecy dying darkness. That's democracy dine just right in front of you to the cheering of the media. By the way. Wait until you hear some of the headlines. Coming biden himself says quote the bulk of the constitutional scholarship. Says it's not likely to pass constitutional muster but there are several key scholars. Who think that may who by the way did he. Actually talk laurence tribe of harvard law school who became an absolute joke over the course of the trump administration when he just started saying crazy things over and over and over again by the way all of this followed hard on corey bush so corey bush is the the congresswoman from missouri. A black lives matter activists you somehow joy adjunct member of the squad sleeping on the steps of the capitol building to demonstrate what. It's like to be homeless. Wow what such such heroics such such imagery. And this apparently prompted biden to make his move. Here the cdc statement here by the way is insane you know their actual fines that are associated with this. The actual fines include for example. A one hundred up to a one hundred thousand dollar fine for voting somebody okay. I don't understand where the cd's he gets this authority. I really don't hell under under what auspices punishing people with one hundred thousand dollar fines. How it's but apparently those are the criminal penalties. I'm reading from the cdc order right now under eighteen us code thirty five fifty nine a person violating this order may be subject to find have no more than one hundred thousand dollars or one year in jail or both if the violation does not result in a death or a fine of no more than two hundred fifty thousand dollars or one year in jail or both if the violation results in death as otherwise per or as otherwise provided by law in organization violating. This order may be subject to a fine of no more than two hundred thousand dollars per event if the violation does not result in death or a half million dollars prevents if the violation results in death. I don't know what it means for. Its result in a death. So what happens you evict somebody and then they can't find a place that they wanna rent and then they just. I like what does that actually mean is the little match girl out on the street. What are we talking about here but bottom line here is. It really doesn't matter. The bigger story here is that the cdc is just doing openly unconstitutional things at biden's behest and apparently nobody seems to give a hot damn for even a second and then the norms crowd is going to lecture us then. We're going to get lectures from the crowd. About republicans and violate norms and how republicans are the author. Teheran's really we'll get more than just one second first.

You know a partner via pepe loop hugh. maybe this is a good pushback. I don't know maybe we missed out here so it was decided was not appropriate character as opposed to as opposed to the characters from a clockwork orange. For example pat bay was not appropriate to be featured in this film. The scene has not seen the light of day. I mean by the way i mean. They had speedy gonzales. An air not to be honest.

But i've talked on here before about how i was at the game and the guy who took me wanted to beat the traffic so i heard the roar of the third homer from the parking garage at yankee stadium. Nineteen seventy seven was big in baseball for another reason though. The first class of free agents took the field. In december of nineteen seventy-five arbitrator's decision effectively abolished the reserve clause that bound players to teams in perpetuity in july nineteen seventy six. The players union led by marvin miller and management signed a labor agreement. Granting certain players free agency and in november of that year two dozen players hit the open market.

Capstein represented ten of the top free agents. Bobby grinch joe rudi rollie fingers don bailer after teams selected free agents that they could negotiate with capstein set up shop in an office building in providence rhode island and invited teams to come visit. He knew that garland would get offers but his twenty win season was justice. I as a full time starter. A million over five years seemed possible when a deal with cleveland was imminent capstein summoned garland providence. It's a ten year deal for two point. Three million cap said according to a story in the new york times by tony kornheiser. You gotta be. Kidding garland replied. Nobody gets tenure deal and nobody's worth two point. Three million capstein told him. I didn't use a gun. It's important to remember that for years but especially at the outset of free agency fans and even reporters resented players who cashed in the day after the signing a headline in the cleveland. Press asked will garland's salary create problems fans. Got on garland. After he gave up hits in spring training after garland lost his first start of the season and akron beacon journal columnist. Wrote wayne garland the two point. Three million dollar pitcher offered little more than a nickel and dime showing before being dispatched to the showers or the counting room. By manager frank robinson unlike jackson and the other free agents who were veterans in one world series garland wasn't a superstar. He wasn't ready for the jeers or the pressure of the contract. Kornheiser wrote that story in july. Nineteen seventy seven garland had a five nine record and a four point six two era. It's a painful read. The fans are really getting on me. Garland says in the piece. I can hear them screaming at me. Garland you two million dollar bomb. When are you going to start earning your money. They don't treat me like a human being. It's like they think i go out there and pitch with all the money in my back pocket like i've pulled the wool over their eyes. Look i go out and pitch the best i can. I didn't ask for the money. Garland told kornheiser that he was less outgoing and prone to taking his frustrations home to his wife and kids now said that his wife told him a few times to call in sick. Instead of going to the stadium once kornheiser wrote garland called his mother and asked her. Why did i even start playing baseball. Brutal garland finished nineteen seventy seven with a thirteen and nineteen record. It turned out that he had been pitching all year with shoulder. Pain a month into the seventy eight season garland had surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff. He made it back in seventy nine and had a career moment in eighty when he shut out the yankees in front of seventy three thousand fans in cleveland who had come for a fireworks show not to watch him pitch but garland never fully recovered and he was out of the majors at age thirty. I wasn't worth. the money. garland said a year after his release. No-one is but if they're willing to pay it. I'm willing to take it. It's really striking to me guys to read these quotations from players like garland feeling guilty about getting paid and from team owners swearing..

The first two he was looking to sweep agron you negroni was looking to have some redemption and save some face by finally defeating defeating how this was four.

Chad like we saw for the first couple rounds of high stakes tool to mcgraw nude jumping out to an early lead in super deep stack. Play mirani clearly at the edge. I think phil would tell you that as well so ground who had the lead helmi fought back. I think that you can say again. That helped me to get hit in the head by by the deck for sure there were plenty of times flop trips turned trips etcetera etcetera. Now with that said two things number one they got it in kings versus kings negroni one number to fill in one of the biggest parts of the night fairly early on when absolutely ham with eight. Three of clubs against niagara new and his deuces in agronomy saw something in phillips like he had a reader attell. That was weak. But phil followed through on this crazy blah.

"more than two hundred thousand dollars" Discussed on Stephanomics
"Joined now by one of the people who helped uncover this story for bloomberg senior editor for the real economy team and one of our best data journalists. Alex tanzi alex. Thanks for being on stephanie mix. I should start by asking you how you came across this story. It wasn't something that i had had about this idea of really much older people laden with student debt so for a number of years now Student that's becoming more prominent problem in the us. It's up to one point seven trillion. So we've ridden about that several times and in the past years before there was four bands for the pandemic delinquencies on student that was the highest of any consumer that so a lot of people are going into a lot of that government wasn't getting any of this money back since focused on and lately. We've taken a deeper luck. How different parts of the population have different types of debt and the loan program for parents wanting to help their kids with the student debt that seems to be causing particular issues so one of the problems there why people running into difficulties one of the issue. There is that type of that that portion of student loans is rising much more rapidly than any other portion so a lot of parents are trying to do the best thing for their kid and incurring a lot of debt to send them to college and that is not cheap. It comes with a four percent more than a four percent origination fee. So right off the top. You're paying four percent more narrow niles and the interest rates are over seven percent. That's extraordinary is a huge gap between the student loan interest rate and say the ten year the us tenure the last dozen years it's average more than four hundred basis points well as four percentage points more expensive and what is i mean. I think we obviously have seen in the election's over the last few years in the us has been a very prominent feature student debt. Not so much the parent debt but the certainly student debt. And there's lots of proposals for helping people with it. But what was the politics of of helping older people with this kind of data some the last election. For the first time it became a campaign issue it rose to that level of prominence. A roulston and not necessarily the parent portion but it became You know campaign issues so a lot. Different politicians running on Forgiven everything violence been opposed to that. So far he hasn't really Staked his ground but he said he was willing to do a smaller portion of forgiveness but for parents in particular you have a lot of people now at the age when they should be saving for retirement at age when they are retired and they're still paying student loans see some people collecting social security retirement income and paying student loans which is not area and it's not a straight democrat. Republican split people feel differently on different sides of the aisle. Now everything political these days in washington but under trump the fellow pointed to be in charge of student loans. He resigned and he said the whole system can't be fixed and he recommended a universal A universal bands have the government. Pay off all these debts. He simply said the system is broken. And there's no good solution to fix it and the country as a whole is better off starting from scratch and it was interesting because i think that guy he actually. He blamed the schools for on. The university is putting students in this in this problem. There's a massive misalignment and incentives so parents and students can take out this money very easily. There's no background check of any type. It's much more difficult to get a five thousand dollar small business loan than say a fifty thousand dollar loan to go to college at the same time. Schools have no incentive. They have no skin in the game. So they have no incentive to keep costs down and you know they're happy to have more and more kids paint a lot of fees. The government gives money out pretty easily. Probably a lot easier than they should There's no type of distinction on the type of college going to the type of major. You're studying everyone's paying the same rate. They do that for particular reasons. But at the same time if there is a different incentive and you know if you're going to very good school your grades are good and you're studying say field that's in high demand and on the private market you'd probably pay less interest at the With the government running things everyone's paying the same and it's creating the misalignment of incentives. And i guess one i mean one reason why it's probably easier to get is. It's much much harder to write off the normal bankruptcy rules. Don't let you write it off the way you would be able to write off other kinds of consumer debt or indeed mortgage debt that you could just walk away from the us. It's extremely difficult to get rid an off lately. There have been some you know very few cases where people have been able to get the debt reduced but for the most part. You know you're stuck with it and you know. People are stuck with last year that the part of education was able to claw back five billion dollars from people social security incomes or tax refunds or other parts of government income. When someone wasn't paying their student learned that lesson incredible figure. I mean the human the human aspect of this is an i remember learning many years ago. Some of the different repayment rates relate to how people feel about the debt. And if you people will try very hard to hold onto their homes and to carry on paying their mortgages if you took if you did a degree and actually it didn't help much. You didn't get a great job out of it. You don't have the same kind of association. You don't feel the same kind of determination pride in paying it back if it hasn't worked out so well so it's i think there's an element of of psychology around this but in the uk you can. It's written off after thirty years student debt. I wonder whether do you think that might make sense in the us to definitely make sense especially for older people become disabled. One issue is people's incomes and their lives are not always a straight line. People get divorced of health problems. People have a death in the family so their incomes fluctuate they lose their jobs sets difficult to always pay the same amount every month with student that in for some people they more than two hundred thousand dollars so it can be significant amount every month. That has to go out. This also st louis fed has done some studies on the outcomes for college graduates and for many that don't necessarily go to the best school and don't necessarily have the best grades. It's not much benefit to go to college. It's not much better than a high school degree. So there is There.

He was here for a neuter surgery so nothing wrong with the he might have had a grudge heading on what was going on. What with that in the background. Oh dog i'm sure howling fad. Yeah just six minute. Drive away from grant us another vet. So gizmo has is but there is a backstory here because grant worked for that other vet for nineteen years. He says he was planning to buy the practice. It was kind of understood in fact that that would happen but then he started hearing these things from the owner that made him. Hey there's going to be these people. They're from one of the corporations. They're they're doing practice evaluation. You know. i'm not really planning to sell to them. But i want to find out what the place is worse. The suits showed up. You can see where this is going. Grant got beat out. He says those corporate visitors offered a million dollars more for the practice than he could afford and he was not feeling happy about this. Well i mean disappointing. Would be an understatement. That's for sure. The corporation that beat grants bid is mars. The giant international chocolate company that makes eminem's twix bars and has locations around the world and this trend is corporate and even private equity money from everywhere from goldman sachs to mars to j. ab holdings which is the parent company of crispy.

Not everybody is an animal lover. What i know. I know but for sixty three point. Four million americans who owned dogs the forty two point seven million americans who owned cats and of course. We can't overlook the owners of fish. Birds reptiles horses flying squirrels for all of those pet owners. Their love translates directly into dollar signs. You know. I have clients referring to their dogs as their children's siblings and their parents as their dogs or cats grandparents. Dr miguel your is a vet. And she sees this kind of spending tampa all the time in the us spending in the veterinary care market totalled thirty one billion dollars. Today we spend more than double what we did a decade ago on our pets and gush buying toys. Oh thousands of dollars on clothes people will redo their houses. Yeah they'll they'll build carries outside. I'm going to do this so i don't even know what a cattery is stacey. You told me you were a cat lover. I doubt right now. People who will remortgage houses for some of these vet bills are twenty thirty thousand dollars. If you're going to get a hip replace- if you've had major operations you've you've had climbed to remortgage their houses. Yes how are you going to thirty thirty thousand dollars. Where are you going to get that money. But it did not used to be this way. And i know this may shock some pet owners out there but when madonna was a kid a lot of animals were kept outside the house. Maybe you took them to the vet a few times a year. So when did we start spending thirty grand and surgery for our pets. Mike dix was chief economist for the american medical veterinary association. And now he's a consultant for bets. I teach marion's to ask clients one set of questions because it's very important. Where does your pet sleep for. Options at sleeps outside sleeps in the garage sleeps in the house. It's sleeps in my bedroom. Mike where our pets sleep illustrate this one huge shift at occurred an invention with completely changed the way we interacted with and spend on our pets. That human animal bond thing really really took off in the late eighties as parasites came on and we were able to keep those dogs in the house. Parasitism asari things kill fleas techs. I mean you know love has its limits like you do. I love you enough to get fleas. That's a whole other level of love and the more people are inside. What those cuts the more. They notice things. They noticed dog itching. Or it's robin its size or its strategist but on the floor. What and when they do. Mike says they call the vet. According to the american pet products association last year we spent over a record setting hundred billion dollars on our pets for food entries and vets so since the eighties and nineties this spending has been increasingly catching. The eye of corporations and veterinary practices can be seen as a reliable investment. It's got low overhead. It's not like you have to build a factory or create a production line. I wrote to mars. I wanted to know why the company invested in vets. They declined an interview but mars also makes pet food like pedigree and whiskers so it just makes sense to also invest in vets. Mike says there are about six thousand small to medium size vet practices and hospitals in the us. The kind that have at least two or three full-time bets on staff but out of those five thousand of them are now owned by big corporations. You might not know it because a lot of them like to keep that small business look and feel but many are consolidating or even buying and flipping them and that is having an impact on independent vets like grant in iowa vets are often in debt. They had to go to school which is expensive average. Tuition is more than two hundred thousand dollars. Some vets will never be able to pay off their loans. They pay the interest..

"Proponent of freedom and he's just like sia well when it comes to the federal reserve. there's nothing you can do about the printing of money that's going on right now. Both parties think it's a grand idea to print money to buy the things that they wanna buy and they argue about what those things are but they think it's they they don't argue about the method and the means well whether you live in florida or new zealand. The federal government's going to do this and the united states is the world reserve currency. So there's basically nothing that you can do to make the stop so it's gonna affect you no matter what leaving the united states change that. I think there's lots of good reasons you leave the united states and i did last year in january. I moved to us marianas because there are two ways to get off the irs roles if you live as an american citizen in another country let's say switzerland and you make more than i think it's more about two hundred thousand dollars if you make more than two hundred thousand dollars a year in a foreign country. The united states government still claims your income. And that's crazy stuff. The only ways to get off the roles is to move to. Us territory that the irs has more to give up your citizenship which is a big move. Yeah indeed it is in. i believe. That's what mr higgs did.

Should Australia Vaccinate Incoming Travelers?
"Is the ideal situation for how we manage incoming travellers because we do have people coming in and we've got to manage them somehow. How should we be doing it. Personal communal talk about by personal opinion is something we've been banging on about for months now. In corona cast immunize. Australians overseas Vaccine to the consulates and to the embassies even it's astro because people pay to get back and get them immunized and that will reduce the risk of transmission that we we seem to be struggling to even vaccinate people here in australia. Should we really be sending dice. Say yes because the risk to australian comes from overseas and if you can reduce that risk that's what you should do above all else so what we're talking about thirty forty thousand. Australians overseas. we're talking about getting to a target will in fact the government's not setting targets but when the where it was two hundred thousand dollars a day so it's twenty five percent of one days doses overseas. And you get people immunized and you reduce the risk and we've got dr from the uk at least for the pfizer vaccine that after the first dose of the vaccine you reduce the transmission risk by seventy percents of asymmetric infection and after an it's over eighty percent after the second does and that study of came out of the united kingdom so it works and that's a very significant reduction is not zero but it would reduce the risk and hotel quarantine or my even limit eliminate the need for hotel quarantine.

Silly and Misleading Retirement Calculators
"I think the main reason people seem amazed at the idea of retiring at age. Thirty forty or even fifty is the lack of real information on early retirement. In general if you type retirement calculator into a search engine these days and enter some stats about yourself. You will find some very strange assumptions. That are guiding you to think you need an absolute load of money to retire for example. I was once working through such a guide in a magazine from northern. Trust a bank that caters to the wealthy. It went something like this. Consider your goals for retirement. What life events do you need to be prepared for. The following table lists average cost children's and grandchildren's university education. A hundred thousand dollars per child children's and grandchildren's weddings twenty five thousand dollars. Assisted care facilities a hundred thousand dollars per year. Medical costs funeral arrangements. Twenty five thousand dollars trust funds for loved ones esteem and legacy planning and charitable foundations. 'wow looks like you're well into the millions before you even get to buy yourself some groceries. Another retirement calculator on cnn. Dot com has various parts to fill out dropdown boxes pre filled with hand values like retiring at age sixty five and needing seventy percent of your maximum pre retirement income constantly for the rest of your life. The drop down box with seventy percent in it did not even offer a value lower than forty percent. This percentage of income concept is one of the most anti mustache ones out there if you make two hundred thousand dollars per year just before retiring this experience. Corrupt you so much that you need a hundred and forty thousand dollars per year for the rest of your life or is it possible to maintain the same luxury standards of a person who has a merely comfortable income like forty thousand dollars per year. This goes back to the ideas of the get what you need posting. I made recently and that is why not go for maximum happiness rather than maximum consumption. I propose that maximum happiness is achieved at a spending level where you live in a comfortable space. Eat healthy foods and get to do lots of active and stimulating things with friends. That doesn't have to cost a hundred and forty thousand dollars per year or even fifty thousand dollars per year for most of us the other assumption they push on people is a very low rate of savings they assume you will less than the annual limit on 401k contributions. And don't say much about what to do if you save more than that which the high income person mentioned a few paragraphs ago could certainly do so these banks and mutual fund companies will continue to tell you that you need millions of dollars to retire because it benefits them for you to invest your money with them. Luckily it's a harmless bit of tom foolery since the saving benefits you as well but the disservice they do is in scaring people out of dreaming to save faster or to think about much shorter time horizons like tenures instead of just plain old age. Sixty five so. I'll give you a quick retirement calculator of my own adult couple with no kids or whose children are. Grown can live very comfortably on forty thousand dollars per year and retirement. My own family lives very comfortably with one child on somewhere. In the twenty seven thousand dollar range you can shoot higher or lower depending on what level of luxury water pursue twenty. Two eighty thousand dollars is a good absolute maximum sane range. But if you don't want to calculate everything out just go for forty thousand dollars and figure out how to make your savings produce that for you for a single person. It might be difficult to slice in half because you lose some benefits from sharing a house in car but you can come close to quick early retirement budgets number one in early retiree couple lives on thirty thousand dollars per year. Earning five thousand of that combined in part time luxurious post retirement careers. The remaining twenty five thousand dollars per year is generated by their savings. Six hundred and twenty five thousand dollars of total savings are required to generate this amount of passive income using the four percent rule number two an early retirees single person leaves on twenty five thousand dollars. Earning ten thousand dollars on his or her many career. Fifteen thousand dollars per year is required from savings which calls for a nest egg of about three hundred and seventy five thousand dollars. I'm working on some much more detailed and exciting sample budgets using real numbers for my own spending experiences before and after retirement

We have a lot of respect international in terms of what canada bring still it. It's clear that improving. The process of drug development and discovery in. Canada is important in creating novel therapies for those living with debilitating rare diseases but that determines whether those living with diseases can access treatment drug pricing medications. That treat rare diseases can be extremely expensive in canada. The prices for treatments for diseases can range from one hundred thousand dollars to two million dollars per year. And there's sometimes required for the person's entire life span in two thousand and nineteen more than half of all of the high cost drugs for rare diseases available in canada. Cost more than two hundred thousand dollars per patient per year in canada. These expensive medications for rare diseases can be paid for numerous ways. Sometimes the covered by public drug programs paid for by the government other times. These drugs are paid for by private. drug plans. typically provided through one's employer. There's also some special access programs but in many cases patients and families are left to cover these expenses out of pocket. The reasons for these high prices complicated the inherent rarity of rare disease means that there are very few people living with it. This means that there's often a very small market for rare disease medications also as we previously heard the process of discovering and subsequently bringing a new medication market is a really expensive one to learn more about the challenges of drug pricing.

A Look Inside The COVID-19 relief bill Passed By Senate
"The senate passed a one point nine trillion dollar covid nineteen relief. Bill here's what senate by elena abramson the senate on saturday afternoon narrowly passed a one point nine trillion dollar cove nineteen relief package a key milestone for president joe biden to ink his first legislative priority into law the avalanche of federal dollars which clock in at approximately nine percent of the country's gross domestic product includes fourteen hundred dollar checks for middle and lower income. Americans extend unemployment insurance through much of the summer and provides seventy billion dollars to increase vaccine distribution and coronavirus testing. The bill was passed entirely along party. Lines with all senate. Democrats supporting it and all republicans opposing. This nation has suffered too much for much. Too long biden said in remarks from the white house on saturday. Everything in this package is designed to relieve the suffering and to meet the most urgent needs of the nation and put us in a better position to prevail starting with beating this virus and vaccinating the country. The house which already passed version of the bill on february. twenty seventh is slated to vote on the amended. Text on tuesday before sending it to biden's desk so he can sign it into law. Here is a look at six major components of the bill direct payments for millions of americans under the senate plan individuals making up to seventy five thousand dollars in couples. Making up to one hundred. Fifty thousand dollars per year are eligible to receive a fourteen hundred dollar check individuals. Earning between seventy five thousand and eighty thousand dollars and couples. Earning between one hundred fifty thousand dollars. One hundred sixty thousand dollars will receive some of that money but not the full amount. The eligibility thresholds are a change from the house's initial version which kept the threshold at one hundred thousand dollars for individuals and two hundred thousand dollars for couples senate. Democrats lowered the eligibility for the stimulus checks to get all democrats onboard after resistance from some moderates in their party. The decision means that an estimated seventeen million americans who received a check under former president. Donald trump won't get one under biden. According to a study from a nonpartisan institute on taxation and economic policy biden said on saturday that the government will begin sending the checks to eligible americans. This month extended unemployment insurance current federal unemployment benefits. Which a lot an additional three hundred dollars per week on top of state benefits are set to expire on march fourteenth. The senate bill extends the program through september sixth at three hundred dollars per week for households. Earning under one hundred fifty thousand dollars. The first ten thousand two hundred dollars of the unemployment benefits are non taxable to prevent surprise billing at the end of the year. These were also changes from the house version of the bill which provided four hundred dollars per week through all twenty ninth. The reduction in unemployment insurance in the senate version was implemented to ensure moderate senator. Joe manchin a democrat from west. Virginia would not break with his party. According to a democratic aide expanded tax credits for families. The bill raises the child tax credit for most families in the coming year by one thousand dollars to three thousand dollars per child. It's even more for families with young children. Many can receive credit of three thousand six hundred dollars for each child under age six. All of these credits are fully refundable and some researchers say these measures could potentially help cut child poverty and half funding for state and local governments and public schools. The bill delivers a three hundred fifty billion dollar cash infusion to state and local governments and one hundred thirty billion dollars to elementary middle and high schools to help them reopen safely. Local budgets have faced steep declines in revenue as businesses remain shuttered during the pandemic last september. The brookings institute estimated that state and local revenues would decline by one hundred fifty five billion dollars in twenty twenty one hundred sixty seven billion dollars in twenty twenty one and one hundred forty five billion dollars in twenty twenty two. The money for schools is designed to help them improve their ventilation systems. Hire more janitors and reduced class sizes to conform with social distancing protocols. Democrats argued that this money was necessary to save public sector jobs and enable teachers and students to return to classrooms without risking their health. Republicans said that the funding already allocated through. Last year's relief bills was sufficient and that sending more money the state and local governments was superfluous relief for restaurants. The bill includes traditional fifty billion dollars in assistance for small businesses including more than seven billion dollars for the troubled payment protection program and a break from previous relief packages. This bill provides twenty eight point. Six billion dollars in grant relief specifically for restaurants which have been particularly decimated by the pandemic

Greg Elfrink - How To Create And Sell Your Own Media Empire
"So when you're when you're seeing someone 'biocyte. I'm kind of curious because he's probably pointed to the seller. Sometimes it's a more of an advance or sorry. The buyer felt like an fbi site because they see the opportunity. Someone did all the hard work of creating the website finding the products. Maybe figuring out what's working what's selling what's not like. What are some things that you're seeing sellers do with a website that on empire flippers. Like are there certain things that they're looking for. Is it like that. where they're like. Oh they did all the work for me. I'm gonna pay for that because they can saved me years of work in heartache to figure all this out like can you know prep yourself for that in a way as a seller. Yeah you're asking. What can i do to help. A buyer seed at their web site. Is that shortcut. Yeah that in the motivations of a buyer yes so they can kind of sync up in the right spot and you know get the valuation yet. This is a very good question. Because i i always Both buyers and sellers so if you ask a seller like why are you selling your business like almost one hundred percent. The fans like i want money vic big vol but that's usually not the real answer right there. That's the superficial answer. Then you dig deeper. They're like oh. I want to do other projects and like okay. Let's dig deeper. You peeling back the onion a bit. eventually filed like. Well i want to focus on other projects. Take less than my time. Because i'm moving to this new house and selling this Business allows me to make this down baby in the house for my new family. And now you're getting to the emotional reason right. So whenever a talk to buyers and sellers say dig deep find out who the buyer seller is copywriting. One we all do like everyone listening to this podcast of the market price familiar with copywriting right but for some reason when you go to buy or sell busy like take the copywriting Just like throw it in the trash like. I don't need that anymore. Businesses success but like the buyer seller. Is your customer right like that is your customer. You need to think about their own motivation. So when it comes through selling thinking about a buyer we recommend Or at least i recommend the seller jagger our buyer persona content. So there's about six of them and they all very different motivations for example a newbie norm. If you've you know you're seller dealing with someone who is a newbie norm. Someone's brand new to the space like that doesn't necessarily mean they don't have business document or money they're just new to online business acquisition. They're probably going not have as much confidence. And so you're going to have to hold their hand a little bit more and that's okay For the seller. Payoff like yes. You might have to hold their hand a little bit more but when you give them a quality business you might have. Effectively changed their entire trajectory of their life in a positive way. Because like maybe knows just starting out and that's always going to be the biggest pool buyers talking to because there's always more people coming in right versus say like a investor yvonne who that would be more of your brand aggregate or someone who's raised millions of dollars to acquire businesses. Obviously their motivations going to be a lot different. And if you're a seller like say you're a amazon. Fda entrepreneurs does example works really well with And you have a one product business. So one hundred percent revenue comes from a single ecommerce product on amazon. Most buyers don't like that look at that and they're like darris seems soup. Exactly right like whoa. Because it's a two hundred thousand dollars of single skew like But an investor ivan. Not risky at all to them. They don't care. They'll buy one product businesses all day long because they raise millions of dollars. A your five hundred thousand dollar eight hundred thousand dollar. Even three million dollar one product business one hundred k. to them as long as it meets their other strict criteria cousin to them is not as risky. Because of all acquisitions are doing right. So this is these are important things to know as a seller going into who am i dealing with For things you can do before you ever sell is ask yourself like would i buy this business like just be honest with yourself would i like. Does this seem like a good deal. Why why does it seem like good deal. You start interrogating yourself. And if you're really honest with yourself There will probably be some answers. The actually seems like not a good deal away. Now i know. How do i fix it. Like how do i make this a good deal for myself right so you always like sellers are obsessed with evaluation for obvious reasons. There's a second. Part of selling a business called attractiveness so some sellers they'll be like Like say you're running this huge media site this You know michigan. Thirty thousand dollars a month affiliates. I and you have this bad ass team writers. Va's as all this all these systems and processes set up in the first thing the so as things like andrei increase my valuation by firing. My old team get rid of that expense. That's valuation boost right. But then the buyer cousin sees all the work that has to be done to maintain this business. He sees you working seventy hours a week. He's just going to discount. You're like hey. I'm going to eat iot. I'm going to hire a team. So i need this for a lower price because the net profit is going to be lower right so you almost get like no benefit for doing that. I always tell sellers like yes valuations imporant that think about. How can i make this business attractive as well. Now right now would you. Would you recommend people go and start a site from scratchers now. A good time to go. Try to find like a site that needs a little bit of love by the site. Flip it and make your multiple. Like what sort of path are you kind of recommending people. Go down if they want to get into this world. Yes so if you're just starting out. I probably wouldn't recommend buying I think it's good to get your feet wet with building. That is a long game. So you don't you don't need to build something until it's profitable. You should be building something to where you're comfortable with the system. So that's the important thing i always like. If you wanna go fast always recommend buying something and if you have some skills. I think it's really good to buy something. That doesn't look great on the outside or even on the inside right like you want to buy other people's problems it's very similar to real estate investing right like if you if i buy a house. That only has like cosmetic issues and smells terrible. No one wants to go in it right. I basically get the smell of discount by the south thirty thousand dollars. I painted to cover smell or whatever and now it's worse as sixty eighty thousand dollars. I just built all this equity for very little right so you. When you're buying it online business you want to look at it in the same way especially once you have skills now if your brand new buying online business. I probably wouldn't recommend buying too many problems because he probably don't have solve them if you're brand new to buy dot go like get this amazing deal because there's a site with us google penalty that's been banned from all its affiliate programs. Like you know you don't want to hunt for like the deal. You're almost always going to be better off buying a high quality business for fair value. Like that's always going to be better at least until you get some skills then you can look at doing this like discount. I call it by business. A discount right. You're looking for these problem of businesses problems like But that's what i recommend. So you wanna go fast. Buying is one hundred percent way faster than building because you already have all the data and you can do all this. Low hanging fruit stuff like cro on page optimization new content taking advantage of the high domain rating on the website. Right all of. You can't do your first starting out site ray like if you put The split testing software. Vw show up on your your ten page affiliates. I was one visitor. Burma like you're not going to change. You know you don't have a lot to work with yet. so
Britney Spears fans call out Diane Sawyer over 2003 interview featured in new documentary: 'I want an apology'
"The fallout from the britney. Spears documentary keeps getting uglier. Justin timberlake was under fire but he is not the only one. Diane sawyer is feeling the heat as well documentary framing brittany featured. Some of diane's exclusive interview with the star from two thousand. Three and fans are outraged. They're saying. Dan owes an apology for grilling her about justin. And whether she's a bad role model for young girls. Here's a clip. He's going on television. Pretty much said you broke his heart. You did something that caused him so much pain so much suffering. What did you do. Britney spears has upset a lot of mothers in this country starting with the wife of the governor of maryland. Really if i had an opportunity to to shoot britney spears. I think i would. Oh that's that's really trying to test a lot of people was pretty wide goodness all right. So there's so much to this interview in fact like after that whole terrible quote from the governor that said i could shoot britney spears diane sawyer to that was something along the lines of well. You've really you know. Made it very hard for a lot of mothers. Wasn't that bad is governor's wife. That's who needs apologize her up unless she's not here or anything like that. But that's what needs to apologize. Get up off. Diane's she's a reporter. She was at a man's world back there. She had to be tough and nobody asked him barbara. Walters apologize but nothing. I'm just i'm done. She had to be tough. 'cause he was week we wouldn't even know her name. Right now feels different. So say you're part because i like when this talk all that i looked up the interview and listen. I'm going to say it's a reflection of the times. It's how we attacked women at that time. It just the things that diane was allowed to say to britney without even a second glance is absolutely appalling. It would never happen in two thousand twenty one. I don't believe she pulled out. Magazine articles Showing brittany and about how she was sexy. And all these things brittany said jaylo does it. Christina aguilera does it. Is it a big deal. Because will you have the connection with the. It's all making her feel guilty on top of that. This is another question. She asked this twenty one year old. She said but you said. I've only slept with one person in my whole life two years into my relationship with justin and yet he's left the impression that you weren't faithful that you betrayed the relationship she's enquiring. How many people britney has slept with questioning her on her virginity on on her sexual relations. That is insanely inappropriate. What she was grown twenty one twenty two. She was grown. She gets grown questions asked at the time she was sixteen. That i would say okay. You a little rough. But she's twenty one years old. You just talked to my nieces. That's what you've been doing your. Sat results long doesn't matter ranger national television. You're asking this young girl to to tell you. All of our sexual secrets and intimate affairs of a relationship overly scrutinized at that time anyways everything she did. This is cobbled reporter year to get the information. It is up to you to answer. Not her publicist should advisor this. You get out of the hard question ooh brennan. Actually i will say handles herself really well. But i think diane sawyer i promise you i truly believe diane sawyer looks back at that interview and cringes bring something. Go through saying if i could do this over again. I would have. Maybe still grilled her but in a much more appropriate way. I think for diane sawyer. Look we have to remember. This was diane's thing. John was known as if you're a celebrity. And you're in hot water. You go sit with diane. Do the tough interview and if you get through it your career is back. Don't forget this is in two thousand. And three a year. After diana whitney houston in she spent two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year on crack. So you gregory speier's just gonna walk into diane sawyer interview and not be hit with the hard questions. It's a little bit much. It's like somebody saying. Oh i didn't know that howard stern was going to ask me about my sex life. I didn't know my family businesses. We're going to be out of mari povich. It's the town though. It's the town that diane takes with britney. Is it just brittany or does he take it with everyone that i can say. We have an we you. She asked whitney straights her face. Do you spend two hundred thousand dollars. We also cracked that one. I want you to feel guilty for your sex life. I want you to feel guilty for your sexual the way you dress. I want you to feel guilty for your responsibility to be this perfect positive as we received it. I don't think she meant that. I think she was just doing a job. That no one else would do. Because i don't know if i would ask brittany that. I don't think i'm that type of person that i can really ask the hard questions if somebody wants to be an open book. They can't be listening wearing the world now of reality. Television people talked about sex they. They'll they'll open the the open it up. They tell it on their own but back then especially a young girl like that to put the pressure on her to try to be the. We still put the pressure on people stars to be the perfect examples especially when they started like disney princess. And then try to move on to something older but she was twenty one at this point at this point when miley cyrus still got like a big backlash whenever she tried to become more sexualize. However we have let it
"more than two hundred thousand dollars" Discussed on Bitcoin Radio
"Well i mean. I think i'm interpreting your question correctly. I i think that Money flowing from it used to be called in early big when he's because fiat league. And i always like object. Heard never heard that one but put it on the screen. The concept is writing trump. Offer go to you referring to thanks still have a monopoly on on money for right ninety ninety and long Still in banks right and banks are still these you know isolated silos of undisclosed risk That are not very Leading edge their functionality fiat lakers concept of growing up into into another system and so with a stable point. I suppose that's what's happened right. That underlying eighty dollars still snuck in a bank somewhere. But that's okay because somebody's applied. Punctual layer over it that that is native to finance dotto. Also it doesn't matter what what it's pointing back to And again whether the us government does that or or somebody else has and by the way You know our dollar stabilizes called up usd and it's it's sort of been in a long beta but But the transparency peijun all the other stuff that we use it up to substantiate in other words. The concept of real time transparency. That's that's really an innovation that i think is taken you know then. Necessary backseats at decentralisation. Isn't right what precipitated. The two thousand and eight crisis wasn't centralization per se. It was a total lack of transparency. These banks got into big trouble and before nobody saw until way too late right so with our dollar stable coined the idea. Is you know. Show people that it's one hundred percents substantiated the whole time and then give it attributes that make it as seamless as possible to flow around in this new more modern financial system. But i think sorry. I'm getting back to the question. I think you asked is is does the leak in the stable indicate migration or a growing interest in sort of the broader concept of crypto or does it Precede moves into things like bitcoin. It's an interesting way for it. It's probably a very good indicator. Yeah and honestly your what you just said is one of my favorite things. You're just said about the financial crisis that actually had me thinking a bit about what the actual problem was. And i couldn't agree more with what you just said about about. Transparency had we had more people seen it sooner. Yeah i agree with my. We might have actually Been able to stop it and like you said the decentralization. I think is one of the consequences of it. Caused people to panic and try to rethink tr. Try to add more stops traveling trying to add more circuit breakers to the to these banks So to speak So i i'm just curious to know. Do you see any upticks of your your platform during times like i'm asking you kind of geographically. Are you able to actually see some of that data or is it more. Just the dispersed. Actually see more uptake of users. People transferring different assets income. Like urgent or are in countries like argentina in real time. Dc this or how long does it take. You see it in real time. I mean obviously the arguments that made that's been written about that. Cyprus was the was the forging moment for early bitcoin right when when when cyprus the bail in where they informed everybody in cyprus i forget what they actually did but it was something along the lines of. Hey you know all of you that have more than two hundred thousand dollars in your bag account. Thank you very much. We're taking them out and if we're doing to bail so so interesting. Basically went through the roof. It was the first big propellant as it were Since then anytime. There's been a shock in a place like like argentina venezuela or brazil or even china Yes our activity. Surges When when those things happen is there. Is there any specific countries that you're not in right now That you'd like to be or what do you think is what do you think is the country most suited now. Maybe just through the years last year that we've had is more suited now to adopt. I'll say digital standard like it might not actually be first world countries because it might be more difficult to rebuild the infrastructure. But i think it's great that you've you focus so much. On making sure the infrastructure it is right and again being more inclusive rather than exclusive rather than just trying to convert people into the crypto market. You are kind of taking that approach to kind of make everything Spendable yeah so so. I'm reminded of there was a period where to To get a land line in brazil to cook years fact apartments that had lands were more valuable than apartments You know that that didn't And all of a sudden you know mobile amarante mobile phones and so Mobile phones took off. They took so long to get to a normal standard with landlines that when mobile showed up they have the need for landlines went away. And so i think i think that's the answer to your question. Where where these things are. The most rapidly adopted is where the existing system is the most backwards or or restrictive rep. So so in regina if the rule is a private citizen you're allowed to buy two hundred dollars per month right. That is the law in argentina. That were well. I wanna more dollars in that and now there's a way i can do it. You know thank you very much right So i think you know. We touched on something. The difference between Between defy and transparency. And somebody that hadn't occurred to me the problem. A little bit with defy is that it's an it's obviously vc's love it. And and and technology love it. And i i'm fascinated by the i i don't have anything against it. But but the passion behind it is one driven like bitcoin. Itself by sort of highly libertarian views. Which are.

"Excuse me to those seventeen seventy five eighty that rage you can back it up and you to say it'd be out just to say sixty to seventy five continuous. It needs to drive after that. Where are you going city. Retirement age retired from that job to look. That'll be me believe me. I'm trying to get out of this. The fastest quickest possible white house is worse the rolling over the cardigan. At and t. Much since they both went to be have all this attention to which one guy is crashing into the city. Which one you guy and agree with you. The accident the white house to his was created was city. Let other people. Don't take the attention from the eighty year. old guy. let iraq our took him years to do this. You're in you're still in early thirty taking a shot from people. The white house is set to receive a deep cleaning ahead of inauguration like deeper than usual right according to government contracts viewed by review. More than two hundred thousand dollars has been spent for increased white house janitorial and housekeeping work including one hundred twenty seven thousand on twenty twenty one inaugural cleaning and another forty four forty five thousand on inaugural carpet cleaning. There was thirty thousand spent for inaugural curtains cleaning while the white house is always deep cleaned during the transition between presidents. that work is usually handled by white house. staff including butler's ushers and maintenance crews contracting additional cleaning services is unprecedented in modern times They're saying they've never seen this before. The government services administration has said they're going to do this very deep cleaning cleaning every surface of the fifty five thousand square foot mansion. They said they will. Thoroughly clean and disinfect the building space between the administrations and assure that everything is up to standard. There are saying that deep cleaning coming after multiple large in person events at the white house over the past few months during which attendees rarely wore masks or practice any social distancing following these events dozens of trump administration staffers and allies tested positive including the president but first lady and the chief of staff the cleaning contracts provide one hundred fifteen thousand two replays and install new carpeting company. That they're using a virginia based company. Whose mission is to provide employment opportunities for people with disabilities which is really good. they're also saying that usually Incoming presidents even trump before. They usually the night before they're sworn in they'll stay at a house on the white house property but they're saying that biden was not offered the invitation to come stay am even though it is like i think the The department of secretary or something like that they extended to offer to him but usually the president's offer it so trump did offer that but he said he was planning on staying there anyway here and he has a hotel in the area that he's going to stay the night before and Him and dr joe biden have already received their two doses of the co covid nineteen vaccine. Goose stork well. So shout out to them. Should we deep cleaning that thing. The first question is when the last time we had a deep clean re day ahead. Good good deploying city take. I'm glad they're taking extra precautions. Clean up because at the air too. Because you didn't get all that trump miss out of there. I got a deep cleaning coming in march. Your colonoscopy again put this could be my third one wall blow barclay. No no doubt shine. God bless i need to get one at least do when do you get those fifty or whatever. Well when you get a for me for me was in my forty health issues for me. Was i was in my late thirties. Because like i said everybody in my father's side had co prostate issues so far. This is my third one sitting here. Put you to sleep this slow baseball. That kind of object than you put it in your rectum area was gone and then yeah and then it clear a little bit. And then when you wake up it's usually a jamaican nurse. Cindy right joe biden. Stay away from that place. If i was joe i wouldn't even move into february two firms. Right get rid of the carpets. Get rid of eric. Everything i would be. This is a guy. Speaking of myself has had been. I'd be honest. I've been playing corona virus roulette. Yes this is the ultimate roulette. Game joe biden. Seventy eight years old pro. Stay out of that place into. I wouldn't go in there to show harvey's birthday bash which has marched fifth. Well he did say they're saying that he's not rushing in move doing it at his i. Also he's he's done this before the say. No thanks for. Joe slept in the ban on.
Best games of 2020: Among Us
"Another unexpected breakout success. Definitely not cyberpunk twenty seventy seven but a little old game called among us. it's an online multiplayer. Game centered around you and your friends. Essentially completing a lot of different tasks to keep your spaceship running while one or several of your teammates are actually trying to kill you. This cultural phenomenon is an indie game created by just three developers. its way of helping. People feel connected. Became a big deal with influencers. But what really sealed the deal is when leading up to the election congresswoman alexandria ocasio. Cortez played the game live on the streaming platform twitch as part of an effort to get people out to vote over. Four hundred thousand joined the livestream raising two hundred thousand dollars but among us wasn't a twenty twenty release. You've seen so many interesting success stories this year in really surprising places. One of the biggest stories of the year was among us among us was a game that came out in two thousand eighteen. It it was a tiny tiny tiny indie game made by a couple of people. Truly just a handful of people that nobody paid attention to in two thousand eighteen and this was the game like it was good in two thousand eighteen. Just nobody knew about it. Even though among us was an unlikely success giovanni worries that most indie games which rely on building up industry buzz at trade shows could be in trouble. The thing that actually is the most troubling thing that comes out of all of this is actually as it pertains to indie games from my perspective. The way that indie games make their money and the way that they get notoriety and become known is they go and they do the work in person they go to conventions like e. three which is the big video game convention which got cancelled this year and they put their names on the show floor and that gets word of mouth out about them but at the same time it also gets them in front of the eyes of investors and publishers. Who are actually gonna give them the money to release these games like with independent movies. It's indie games with small teams and small budgets that could be hit the hardest by the pandemic though if there is one industry that's gaining new followers and could probably thrive in a virtual business environment. It's probably video games. In general games. Were really prepared for this moment in some way because if you look at the last couple of years of how the industry has developed it's been really cleared that games have been moving towards the sort of like. Hey we're all going to have to be digital at some point you know whether it's whether it's through being away from one another long distances or or something like this games have been preparing for this really really well you know. Multi-player games of the last year have only gotten bigger and bigger so all of those pieces kind of came together this year where it was like. Hey we know all of this is rough and we know that a lot of industries film and sports are going to have a really hard time figuring out how to deal with this. We've got this.

Kelly Loeffler's Atlanta mansion 'Descante' mysteriously dropped in value by millions of dollars, giving her a tax cut of roughly $88,000
"Republican senator kelly law flers multimillion dollar home rapidly depreciated in value resulting in a much lower property tax bill. Now no one can explain why especially at a time when all of her neighbors property values went up She and her husband had pumped money into remodeling this extravagant mansion. And usually when you do that the property value goes up. But i'll give you the details and you decide for yourselves. If something shady is going on leffler in her husband. Jeffrey sprecher bought a fifteen thousand square foot atlanta mansion known as discount for ten point five million dollars in two thousand nine the value of the estate as praise by fulton county government officials for the purpose of calculating annual property tax stews. Remain the same for the next seven years but then something weird happen in two thousand sixteen. The praise value suddenly plunged to four point. One five million sixty percent decline. So how does that translate to lower property tax while property taxes of course are calculated based on the value of the home and if the value of the home goes up your property tax bill goes up and if it goes down of course your property tax bill goes down now. Originally they were paying two hundred thousand dollars annually to the city and county governments in property taxes. That in two thousand sixteen after their home's value dropped. They paid ninety thousand dollars since then. The appraised value of their home has risen to roughly five million. But they're still paying about eighty thousand dollars less a year than they did when they first bought their home
What Is Alpha Fold
"So what is alpha full. It's a software system. Relying on many of the techniques we discuss on data skeptic deep learning and that sort of thing as well as many biological techniques. Don't discuss on the show. It is a truly interdisciplinary breakthrough which is able to predict the three d structures of proteins based on the sequence of amino acids that compose them proteins consist of twenty different amino acids and the structure of that protein. Which is the hard thing to predict. Sadly also the most interesting thing. The protein structure determines its biological function proteins. You can imagine are quite small. That's why we can't just look at them to see what their shapes our or at least not look at them directly. This is something that bothered me when i was younger. I was learning about things like the atom and hearing that the electron was never exactly in one place that it existed as a potential cloud or really just a probability distribution over where it might be. Maybe that worked out on paper. But i wanted to know what if i could zoom you know or shrink myself down or get a really high powered microscope. What would it really look. Like if i could get down there and see it. And i eventually learned. That was a nonsense question. It's like asking. What is the son taste like. We're talking about atomic scales. The errors that alpha fold made were on the nanometer scale. As far as seeing at least with my eyes that's going to require photons. And if something is skinnier than the period of the photon within. There's no way to really see it. But it's so. Scientists have developed many ways of seeing or. I'm just gonna start saying observing of observing proteins x ray crystallography is a diffraction technique nuclear magnetic resonance takes advantage of properties we know about oscillating magnetic fields and cryogenic electron. Microscopy is a technique whose mechanism i can't well articulate but these have been the major techniques that scientists used to experimentally determine the structure of proteins. So why do we need al full that all if we have three techniques all of these are insanely expensive require tremendous amount of training and are in some ways error-prone although no disrespect to the operators of these machines that work in those labs. I don't know where this figure came from. I couldn't find an original source. But i found a lot of popular press quoting the number. Two hundred thousand dollars is the cost of establishing one protein shape through some of these methods. So you've got the choice between i. Guess what a down payment on a house or knowing the shape of a protein also commonly cited is the opportunity for this to advance drug discovery. My understanding of this is that in many cases drugs are designed to kind of fill in the blanks or do something that a protein isn't doing to mimic shape and therefore mimic its mechanism. I was trying to come up with a programming. Analogy here may be saying that the amino acids were the binary code and the proteins were the assembly language. There's a structure to them but very archaic and hard to read by humanize. I prefer to read it in the original. See myself. i'm not a biologist. So i'm not going to speculate on this but it is quite clear. This is a fundamental and major breakthrough. I don't know if my analogies fair. But i would. Maybe compare this to a breakthrough in quantum computing that doesn't change everything about computing overnight or soon thereafter. We'd see improvements in search thanks to grow. His algorithm and an integer factor ization. Thanks to shore's algorithm but i lack the creativity to appreciate the full breadth of what it might mean for practical quantum computers exist and i'll select the background in creativity and breath to understand what alpha fold is going to do for us in the future. But i'm very eager to watch the story unfold. As i'm sure it will
Where In The World Is James Harden?
"Been so excited to talk to you about what it's like to be on the rockets beat right now because covering this team has never been boring really but how would you describe what it's like at this moment. What's the mood around all of us in. I mean look. The rockets tend to tends to be a lot of curb. Your i think the to put it. Politely tim macmahon covers the nba for espn from texas. Where he's been documenting the chaos in houston all offseason. Typically that turbulence at least over the last eight years has been about trying to find a coast are four james harden james harden and say no. I'm tired of this guy. Give this one or you know whatever the case may be now. Turbulences is them desperately clinging to the hope that they can convince this. Who is touring the country with a rapper. Right now party maskless during the pandemic while they're beginning training camp come on we can still win. You know get back on board. And i say that. That's a heck of a challenge to put put a lightly so i want to reset for the listener. You're tim because a year ago. The rockets were at a very different place. They were embarking on a grand experiment. Their gm was daryl morey. They had to former mvp to former teammates with thunder james harden and russell westbrook in just one year later. Daryl morey has gone russell. Westbrook has gone and despite the rest of the team reporting for training camp on december first. James harden is still. Mia so what do we know about where he is right now so we are recording on monday morning and his last known location means las vegas by the way just an amazing sentenced before whenever the next sentence is going to be. My understanding is it's gone from atlanta to las vegas. The rockets is you may be aware based in houston Not not not a short walk but for a guy who can afford to say. Throw one hundred thousand dollars cash in a prada bag along with a two hundred thousand dollar. Watch to give into birthday present. It's not difficult to charter a private jet. And get back to houston. If you are so determined. I want to explain for those who are uninitiated. Tim what exactly we saw. James harden doing in las vegas. What was little baby. The rapper doing. Why was there a prada bag full of literal and metaphorical honey buns like what was happening there. Yeah and i'll be honest with you. The whole honey bun metaphor that. That's that was new to me. I don't have any friends that throw hundred thousand dollar bricks of cash at me for my birthday. Wouldn't mind having those types same but yeah so atlanta. This is thursday when nba players are doing individual workouts. They're supposed to be quarantined. In the side from working out testing in the team faciliate essential activities. Well hard ops over to atlanta and attends low baby birthday party gives them the prada bags stuffed with like you said the little honey buns and the metaphorical honey bun. I don't even know how to pronounce the name of the the watch. But it's you two hundred thousand dollar watch and a prada bag because you see hardness proud of him So that was you know it was very very Thoughtful thought to the baby not so much to the houston rockets and harden was also apparently very proud to be attending this party maskless because he posted several pictures on his instagram account. Which you know arms not a big g guy in terms of activity so he definitely wanted it to be known. That area is a little babies birthday party. And then as the rockets are going through their first practices when i first saw these other videos Surface and again. I you know. I forgive me. I'm not quite sure. What said underscore one 'em's. There's just so many underscores oblivious van. It's really hard to keep track of these user dips. Well i mean. I'm a. I'm a forty four year old farts. I don't know exactly who he is. But apparently he's you know pretty important dude in in Little baby circle anyways. So he's got pictures of them continuing the party in vegas and you know. There's a jam packed tour buzzers. Oh people dinner. They're making rain at the club. All all that kind of stuff. I think i
Can Seattle arts groups survive the pandemic?
"Corona virus is a public health crisis of course but it's also devastated the economy it's been especially destructive businesses that depend on people gathering together in person tourism restaurants and the arts. Kyw's arts and culture reporter. Marcy silman has been monitoring the health of the regional arts and culture community. She spoke with kim. Malcolm about what. We might see moving forward so marcy for the past couple of months. You've been doing some deep dive reporting on how the pandemic has impacted our cultural communities. How would you describe what you found across the board. Kim organizations are treading water. If they haven't already drowned you might remember last march. When governor inslee issued his social gathering restrictions. everyone had to shut down operations museums and some art galleries have started to welcome back visitors. But they're at twenty five percent of normal capacity which just does not sound sustainable. And marcy you and i've talked about how performing arts groups and musicians have been streaming content and how it just doesn't cover the costs for many of them. So what are arts leaders telling you about this pivot to digital when it doesn't pay the bills. Peter bowl who is the artistic director at pacific. Northwest ballet told me that he pivoted digital because he wanted to give some work to the dancers musicians backstage artisans and other staff who would otherwise be unemployed. According to a new study from the seattle advocacy group arts fund. Thousands of area of workers are still jobless and even though as we said. Some venues have reopened. This survey found only about nine percent of local artisans and been rehired many back part time or reduce salaries but kim beyond providing jobs. I think that this pandemic has really forced performing arts groups to reckon with the digital age in a way that they hadn't done before the pandemic kit. And what do you mean by that. Well for at least a decade arts groups have been trying to figure out how they compete with free or low cost online content that arts fund study that i mentioned found that every responding group plan to permanently integrate digital content into their arts program offerings the ceo of arts fund. Michael greer told me that's partly because audiences are really leery about heading into enclosed spaces with lots of people that component that new revenue component is going to be essential to kind of filling the void of individuals. Trepidation do moving back into the theaters or just a general reorganization of how society interacts with itself. Not even just in the arts bottom line marcie will most arts groups survived this pandemic. It's really hard to say for certain. But to quote the head of seattle's office of arts and culture randy angstrom. The sector is on the knife's edge getting people to value in compensate artists and creatives for their time was already a challenge. Then the pandemic it and it was devastating. And i think that that devastation was disproportionately felt by by park organizations and artists because they've been underinvested and undercapitalized for so long and i'll just note here by poc refers to artists who are black indigenous and people of color. What is happening with these communities. Well this summer one worries alicia. Johnston told me that they only have the funds to make it through the calendar year. I did check back with her earlier this week. And she says that right now. They've got about half the budget for twenty twenty. One heart of that came from contributions sparked by black lives matter but she told me those have tapered off and even though she describes herself as one worry self designated worrier about money. She's pretty hopeful that they'll raise the two hundred thousand dollars. They need to keep this community cultural center going. Marcy i know can county. And many private funds have funneled relief. Money to the arts sector. What are arts leader saying about what they need to survive. Many hope congress will enact another significant stimulus measure randy. Angst room would like to see a twenty first century version of the works progress administration. That was the depression era program that funded arts projects across the country. Local artists have already stepped up. And they've been making murals. And creating digital arts lessons plan for the public schools angstrom and many other folks think it's time to fairly compensate them for that work. And how optimistic is he that that might happen. I'm gonna let him answer that. I am hopeful because the creative community of the city gives me that help. I am hopeful because of the incredible resilience. I've seen and we need to meet that resilience with dollars and faith in their work but angstrom says the city cannot finance this on its own. They really need a major influx of federal dollars. At this point. Who knows when that's going to happen. We'll mercy speaking of resilience. I have to acknowledge. Even though i don't want to that this is most likely our last on air conversation about the arts as you retire from k. u. o. w. after a remarkable thirty five years. Marcy i just wanted to say thank you we're gonna miss you and all the attention and the advocacy for the arts. That you've paid Here in this part of the world. I'm just grateful for all the work and thankfully that still lives online. It does indeed. It's been migrate pleasure working with you as the all things considered host. And i'll miss you. And i won't be gone from the world of seattle's arts and culture still always keeping my eagle eye on it.
3 Simple Ways to Make Your Webinars More Engaging
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su, and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about three simple ways to make your webinars more engaging. So we're in two thousand twenty right now and webinars are still a very effective way to get sales. You look at the people out there such as click funnels they see it's still use a ton of webinars. So again, webinars are basically could be like zoom meeting could you can use this offer like live storm or whatever but you're basically teach people get them to indoctrinate them a little bit and then closed them at the end so if you want. To start with number one, number one is asked people questions within your web, an arm and most people the they have these powerpoint presentations are going. They're doing a pitch that eventually selling but ask people questions throughout it because that'll also give you their objections and make sure you answer each of those objections within your wapner. Even if it's at the end in May, because not only will keep people on longer 'cause you're answering their questions, but you'll also get more sales from it too. Yeah. Number Two I. Guess this is the only one for me but I think this is the most important thing from my perspective is. During a Webinar to focus too much on teaching and because all I did was teach I gave them stuff to do. So maybe I did seven ways to do something but I seven. So you're immediately I'm going to go take some action after ideally what you do is you give them a couple of Aha moment. So maybe two or three all moments let me give you an example. So the consulting school program that we have where we teach people how to build an agency or service type of business for that one. Originally again, I had video, it was teaching people five things you should be doing that are different. To grow your consultancy. Now, what it is is I teach them to think strategically right. So what what am I saw moments was, oh, you should think of your agency not as a long term, it's going to be a big business but more. So for most people, you WANNA think of it as a launch pad business. So you take that drive the income for yourself to hundred, two, hundred, thousand dollars a year, and then make a casual business, and then you go invest and other things could you need to build your wealth that way? Right so it's a good launch pad business. So that was one of the Aha moments. And it's different perspectives from other people, and that's what makes it a little unique and people are like, oh. That sounds amazing and what we do is they're trying to close them. We try to drive them to a phone call and our conversion rates literally shot up after it qualified people quite a bit more to get on the phone call. So I would just say instead of trying to teach too much maybe teach a little bit maybe like ten twenty percent but the rest focus on how moments one, two, three, Aha moments that will really blow people's mind and then just tried to drive up to the next action and. Last but not least in a Webinar recommend that you have someone from your team or hire a contractor to help you and man the chat you won't be able to respond to everything. But if you're actually engaging with people and responding to the comments and the questions right when the come in, you're going to be much better off people stick around they engaged and increase your sales as well.
