Mark said the chief economist for moody's analytics says when you look at the housing market, you can already see the fed rate hikes having a huge impact. Mortgage rates are up a lot and affordability is collapsed, some sales have weakened. The house prices are rolling over. That's the script.

Governor Phil Murphy says New Jersey has officially acquired 9 miles of abandoned railway to turn it into a state park. The long anticipated S 6 Hudson greenway has been compared to the high line in Manhattan and will span 8 communities from montclair all the way through Jersey City. Governor Murphy says it's a step in the direction of ensuring more equitable access to the state's green spaces. 9 miles of new green space through some of our states, most densely populated areas. 9 miles for healthy recreation for cycling for running and for walking and notably for many residents who otherwise don't have ready access.

In a statement, The White House hailed the hard work by negotiators for unionized rail workers and the freight railroad companies. Biden did not release details of the tentative contract. Union members had demanded better working conditions, especially pointing to their lack of sick leave. The rail strike was supposed to start at midnight tonight in preparation and PR's David schaeffer reports the nation's passenger rail system Amtrak had already started canceling long distance trains. Amtrak's employees are not involved in this labor dispute, but outside of the northeast corridor Amtrak's trains operate almost entirely on track owned, maintained and dispatched by the freight railroads. The passenger rail service says it is canceling trains on long distance routes in order to ensure the trains can reach their terminals before a service eruption would begin. Additional Amtrak cancellations may follow. Some commuter railroads that share track with freight railroads could also be affected. David shape or NPR news.

"Than what we saw over Memorial Day and 4th of July. It's hard to describe just how hot it is in Southern California, but we asked CBS Steve federman to give it a try. The heat wave is going to continue. It's toasty. It's sweaty. I can't stop sweating. There is concern about elderly people and those with medical conditions staying cool, another issue possible power outages with air conditioners being used nonstop, officials are asking that people can serve when possible. An unimaginable amount of rain has fallen in the south. CBS News meteorologist David Parkinson says this is not good. We have a really dangerous situation that is unfolding in northwestern Georgia a foot of rain has fallen today and that has triggered a flash flood emergency, which is the most dire kind of flash foot alert that comes from the national weather service. The southern capital city is still without drinking or bathing water, CBS Jim Crow has that. A YMCA in suburban Jackson, Mississippi has been reaching out to the community for more than a 140 years.

"Because of its manufacturer, Alice Chalmers. Single generator entire world. Operations manager, James McMahon, points out the big Alice generator, large enough to energize a million homes. He opens a small hatch to the boiler and inside is a white orange inferno of burning natural gas. Overall, ravens would delivers about 20% of the city's power, and it's easy to see how. We've been running at near full output for the last couple of weeks while we've been in this recent hot spell. Ravens would CEO Clint plummer invited WNYC for a tour of the retro facility in early August. He lays out how everything here could soon change. The renewable ravens would program is this set of projects that over time will be able to replace our existing 1960s vintage fossil generators with large scale clean energy facilities. The project aims to turn Ravenswood into a power outlet. Of renewable energy, the plant's location on the east river means it can receive underwater cables from offshore wind installation. It's also well placed for transmission lines running down rivers from upstate solar and wind farms. Our connection to the grid and other infrastructure gives us a very unique opportunity to repurpose this site to help the state and the city achieve their goals for the energy transition. Which means that the facility can transmit this clean energy directly to homes and businesses. If approved a zero emissions Ravenswood could provide power to more than 2 million homes. No longer burning fossil fuels would also alleviate some of the cost to human health. They actually named this area as my alley because of so many asthmatic children. Claudia koger has been living in the nearby Astoria houses for close to 70 years. Her home is among the more than 6000 New York City housing authority apartments, located right around the power plant. Queensbridge houses to the southeast, Ravenswood houses a few blocks east and a story houses to the north. It was my granddaughter and her two children, all three of them are asthmatics and pump machines now. This generational trend doesn't surprise doctor Joan Casey. She is an environmental health sciences professor at Columbia University's mailman school of public health, who has studied the health benefits of taking fossil fuel plants offline. About three miles from the facility was what we saw as the most exposed. In the case of Ravenswood, the danger zone includes more than 1 million people. Nearly half are people of color. A 2018 study from her team found improvements in premature birth rates among pregnant people, living near coal and oil power plants after they closed. We had the highest population density of any U.S. city. We shouldn't have a fossil fuel generating station in New York City. It's crazy. But James schiller, the president of utility workers of America union in New York City, worries about what the transition could mean for employees at power plants. It's always the stacks of ravensworth. You know, they've had a target on their back for many, many, many years. And at other plants, the renewables transition has been hard to swallow. We have one company I represent that produces power. Here in New York City, the air already said that closing in March of 2023. I have another company that says, we're not changing anything because we don't think it's going to happen like they say. So we're going to keep doing what we do and we'll be the last man standing and make money. Both silata and plumber say Ravenswood has pledged to create training programs. So workers can make the pivot as smokestacks disappear. But the transition won't be easy. All of this is a very long endeavor. Each one of those four things requires a large number of permits consents and approvals. And will require a very exhaustive set of environmental reviews at the federal state and local level. The ravens would energy center will submit its first permit applications by the end of the year. Once those are secured, plumber says it should take about one to two years for each piece of the transition. The price tag is unclear at the moment, but the project would also include large scale battery storage and a wind farm on the east river. The company hopes to fund the transformation with their own capital, along with state and local grants. For 87 year old koger, the transition can come fast enough. The very air that we breathe, it determines lifetime. If the plan is approved, Ravenswood hopes work can begin near the end of this decade. Rosemary and his dairy, WNYC news.

"The monitor. As the climate warms, more people are seeking air conditioning to stay cool, but air conditioning itself can exacerbate global warming. Is there a way to balance the need for cooling with the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions? As climate change causes temperatures to climb and hot spells to last longer, billions more people will need or want air conditioning. And because of expanding economic development, a growing number will be able to afford it. Air conditioning and electric fans already account for about a 5th of the electricity used in buildings across the world, according to the international energy agency. This wouldn't have a huge climate impact if electricity grids were powered by renewable energy. But according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, renewables contribute only about 17% of the country's utility scale power. And in developing countries where much of the air conditioning boom is expected to happen, the primary power source is coal. Vince romanen sees a market opportunity there. He's the CEO of gradient, a company that uses heat pump technology to make a new sort of window unit, one that both heats and cools while using less energy and cleaner refrigerants. This summer, the New York City housing authority awarded gradient of 7 year contract to manufacture 10,000 units for its public housing facilities. Gradients purpose, mister romanen says, is both to mitigate climate change and to ensure that marginalized communities have access to economically fair and efficient cooling.

"A couple of blocks away, as the surf sounds begin to fade. Residents of Coney Island's public housing units are struggling. Their grounds are now ripped up with mountains of dirt laying beside exposed pipes. What's going on in here is really crazy. But you pay rent You want to live. These things. I like an animal. They treat us like human beings. Like dogs. I remember begun is a retired disabled resident of o'dwyer gardens, a complex run by the New York City housing authority. Resem apartments have gone almost 6 months without cooking gas. At a neighboring development called Coney Island sites four and 5, August will mark the one year anniversary since residents lost cooking gas in their apartments. The absence leaves over a thousand residents without a way to feed themselves. I want somebody here, they say, they give me an appointment, they don't show up. So many appointments they never came. The gas breaks and the two developments look the same, but stem from different issues. The interruption of the o'dwyer building stems from a construction project that was supposed to finally fix problems spurred by hurricane sandy. The initiative called the nature recovery and resilience project is a $700 million effort to repair and replace the crumbling infrastructure with something that will potentially survive and outlast the next superstorm. But in the effort to do that, the cruise knocked out gas lines, and the agency is offering no clear service renewal in sight. Mark is a resident of o'dwyer gardens who agreed to speak anonymously for fear that he would lose his housing for publicly criticizing NYCHA. So one by one by one by one that the gas services disrupted in quality of life suffers because you know what that does to the human psyche People just they get fed up and that's just one of the many conditions that are going on here and it's going on for years. Over at sight's four and 5, the gas break is due to a leak on the main pipe, according to an emailed statement from NYCHA. But residents say the problem speaks to crumbling infrastructure, exacerbated by damage after sandy. Regardless, the city says service can not be restored until construction on all the wings are completed. But since the lines were cut 11 months ago, only one out of 5 wings has been completed. State assemblywoman Matilda frontis represents the district, and according to her, fixing these issues has been a game of whack a mole. Problems pop up as soon as the solution seems to be on the horizon. More recent examples have certainly been contractors and subcontractors working on the premises. And having some sort of mishap and they keep saying, oops, we're so sorry. As they mistakenly, you know, cut a line while they're working. Residents wax poetic about what a beautiful and well maintained building this used to be. Now, there's garbage piling up in the pits where the contractors expose the pipes. Water is leaking out of the buildings, pooling around the base of the concrete. It's attracting rats and bugs, and residents fear the inaction will only lead to future problems. I mean, you want to come home after a long day. And you don't have the mechanism to do that. You have a hot plate which allows you to cook in one pot at a time. Just thinking about it stresses me out. It's not like cooking on the stove. You probably have to

"Have lots of gardening that happens here. And it makes it more beautiful, actually, sometimes I don't even go on the street as day here. Which is bad. But ten years ago, during hurricane sandy, Perez saw the streets turn into rivers around her home. She watched as the storm hit the local hospital, and two other public housing developments nearby. Sandy was really scary. When you see a hospital going underwater, you're like, oh my God. What's going on here? Perez's complex escaped sandy. But with another few decades of sea level rise, a similar storm could bring floodwaters right to its doors. A WNYC NPR analysis of exclusive data from the national hurricane center shows that a sandy like storm could flood more than 50 NYCHA developments by 2080. That's nearly 50% more than we're inundated by the original superstorm in 2012. Nationally, another estimate projects three times as many low income homes at risk of frequent flooding by 2050.

Particularly when they're already more vulnerable to the effects of climate change.

"To me. Never use it was funny is You know that's where. I learned a lot about business in a car dealerships. Understanding that of how not to lose money would also add to make money. You know so for me. It was always says my father was professional boxer. He never made a lot of money at it and i grew up in the projects. I never wanted to go back to projects so that was my main goal. It was not enjoy my time but in a project. But you don't know you broke until you see the other side let me ask you this Because i saw the cousin. There's so we need start. You know more business. I'm more my business. Mind now than i was back when i was making all of the nba money but most families don't grow up with anybody in the family telling them about owner anything they sell. You know what i'm saying or they don't grow up getting no type of financial literacy how you suck out from do. He had the magazine. I need to know it by. I can just pay you to do. But i rather grill myself to life so landed somebody put that. Nu of like man you need on some. Don't stop at an nba check. But you need to own something yourself. You need to know financial literacy and this could help create a generational wealth so it was It was my mom. My mom lives in beckley west. Virginia and then she moved to new york city at eighteen years old. And if anybody knows anything about beckley west jan was a coal mining state and that a lot of opportunities there back there in the sixties fifties for african american women. You know she wanted to go to. The military and my grandfather wasn't military. He told her not to go because of all the challenges that women face in the military. So he's chipped her up to new york city and she wanted to be an accountant as well but she didn't go to college and couldn't afford to go to college and my mother was actually the bookkeeper for the new york city housing authority so when people and projects will go to the rent office they will be she would collect rent and balance the books and everything like that and then keep a chart of accounts so when i was younger my mother couldn't afford ask the care which is like a daycare center. Or whatever like that you know. So i was a latchkey kid that came home and did everything on my own. Sometimes i will go to her office and she taught me about debits and credits to balance the book and all these different things everything had to equal up at the end of it and so. My mom also didn't believe that. I needed to be in harlem all the time. She wanted to take me outside harlem. So she took me around new york city she would show me museums. She would sometimes take me to Dinner places as she didn't eat and she taught me how to read off menu at an early age. So what she was really teaching me was not to be afraid of anything you now and always asks a question and always be curious and then she also told me the story about my dad. My dad was a very good heavyweight boxer but he didn't make the right choices of people to manage him no So she always inserted into me of being able to identify. What is the right choice for longevity rather than in the short term so that came from mom and then looking at it from my side of it it was always wanted to own something in all I always wanted to so think of your your signature of your game of who you are as a player. I wanted to own that for me. So it only makes sense that anything that i participated and i wanted to own that as well and I never wanted my kids to start from zero. Like i did so very important for me to build something not for me but for them so that they can make choices to play basketball on not to play play on the job for a job. You really do the dealers do. Would you pose the do you own yourself. Herat's correct always say about market. I'll try to create these jobs. They they'll play basketball. I got some form yet. They really wanna do something with it. They can own it. Yeah so that's the philosophy that ad in one of the things that i tell my kids is that your work ethic opens up your talent. You know it is no. There's no way around that united. I've seen a lot of talented guys who don't work in never really realize their full potential and that's sports and all these different things but yeah i've always said to myself that hey. I don't have an appetite for working for somebody and going through the professional basketball career. You realize that you work for somebody and I always wanted to be the person that could make division and make it come alive and employ other people and give them an opportunity as well. So that's always been. My philosophy is ownership for somebody else own and so they can live out. Their dream is what where he's speaking on is being a real boss is not a different between a you. Make a lot of money oma both on this. I got my no no no no no it. There's different during. That is what you speak like when you own. Sit in when you college size in when you press the buttons in the pub mess. That's the real boss. Yeah plan li like you said you plan for whatever you get your check in such ason name on that main you work through yeah bottom line like until you till you making that bridge yourself you making your own comment you sign and you sign intersection pan other people that's when you are the boss. Yeah the future generation is comment and the kids. This guys out there now. They need to hurt. Don't stop when you get these. Nba checks is still like a lot of work to go like. It's still you get out there and do businesses and just bill foundations whether you build the communities. Whatever you're doing it don't stop when you get sick when you are. I'm done i made it. You know that was one of them. Phillies i had. Oh shit million dollars. Nobody ever told her to be. I'm good. I'm gonna live forever and don't work like that it's like man. You gotta continue to get out here. And like i say a lot of our families are colored. Never teach us about generational wealth now. The teachers give us financial literacy. Never been to college did all the they don't teach us also to how to transfer. Yeah and that doesn't necessarily mean wealth and means knowledge to knowledge yeah. The generations go by generation to generation. So will you finally get somebody to just breakthrough generation. That's what you can stop that tied tied in your family. I like with a lot of guys doing. I get a lot of calls from different guys. I really like what you know. Carmelo's knowing hidden asks doing the i really. I got a chance to speak to kevin last year. At the game before kovic. And i told him i said man keep going man. I mean you know we need a lot more former players involved in ownership and not just majority and not just the ones with big brands will. The nba was built on big brands. But the people that carry the nba as the body. I think it's important for us to now seghal ownership in different things like that. I mean you know. I love what michael jordan has done but also love to see guys like You know Forgot his name with magic is done and bridgeman. He's another guy that wasn't quite a bit. That has done a lie. Wages did grant hill. Just got into game. I'm proud because we we got a. We have a bunch of millionaires at first but now we got a bunch of millionaires.

To run in the general election as the controller of the city of New York has had correct, John Curtis. You gotta write my friend. I'm looking to join you and helping to fix this city. All right now. Unfortunately, not a lot of attention has been given either to the controller race at this point of the public advocate race aerial focuses on the two parties with their mayoral. Choices. Tell us what it is that you would do as controller for the city of New York to replace Scott Stringer. Well, look, Curtis, the first thing I want to tell you is that my lifelong sat down that was born in Manhattan. I was raised in stat. Now on my dad was a cop. My mom ran a small business. And most importantly, I got three amazing kids. And I'm looking at this city in the worst financial crisis I've ever seen in my entire life. I spent the last 30 years as you know, in finance, looking at the books, watching how businesses operate and learning how to make money out of thin air. And one thing I know for sure is, if you have a pension in New York City right now, you are in major trouble. If you live in New York City, public housing, you are in major trouble. And if you pay taxes in New York City, the way people leaving here you are also a major trouble for my kids. And for my love of New York City. I want to come in and bring it out of the box. Set of ideas toe fix in this city. Our pension plan has been completely mismanaged. And, quite frankly, Curtis The pension years of New York have been ripped off the last 25 years, while custodial Bank Bank of New York Mellon, I can come in and bring a unique set of ideas to the table that could start to get that money back and get off Financial house in order. I want to get the box out of the henhouse and put the people's finances first. All right, you know, with Scott Stringer. He's term limited. Thank God. The mama looked him a shot. He's now one of like 20 Democrats running in their primary and late June. But I noticed one thing he never did. We have this glaring thrive program of Mayor de Blasio and his wife. In five years, they've been allocated one and a quarter billion dollars. Even though he'll be out of office. When you use the powers of subpoena tohr I to figure out what happened to that money, John because Nobody seems to know where it's spent. We've got more emotionally disturbed people, more mentally impaired people from health issues mental health issues than ever before. Hey, Curtis. Listen. One of the most attractive things I saw when looking at the comptroller's race was that controller must order every city agency every four years. The first thing I will do when elected to controller is I will go in and I will order the New York City thrives program. What facing an $8 billion budget deficit last year and I want your lane McRae and I want Build the Blasio to give us some of those billions back. Because New York City deserves it. The second thing I'm gonna do is I'm going to go in, and I'm gonna audit and consolidate the New York City pension plan because there's 3 to $4 billion sitting there that we can get ripped off for the last 20 years and third. And just as important, I intend on orders in the New York City Housing Authority getting all these middlemen all these kickbacks all these people with the sweetheart consulting deals and making it steals that living out of borrows and out on Long Island. And given the people of the New York City Housing Authority of Fair Shake something they haven't got in quite a long time. Now, the biggest part of the budget, I think last she was about $92 billion.

"He is a partner Corey Law firm, did you I'm a partner at Levi Konigsberg in Manhattan. And he's represents individuals who have catastrophically been injured. With an emphasis on Children that have suffered brain damage from lead poisoning. He also represents people that have been injured through medical malpractice and construction injuries. Cory has recovered tens of millions of dollars for his clients. Verdicts and settlements and has gone it a national reputation for his work on lead poisoning cases prior to joining Car. We had practice extensive areas in complex negligence, civil rights and the product on byproduct liability in Georgia. And I believe you went to the University of Georgia also, go dogs go dogs. But I have to be in New Orleans a couple of weeks ago, and when I was in Baton Rouge with my Children, where you Yeah, I was in New Orleans for the conference. And I sort of the dog fans and then in if I could say the dog's got dog that they were there, we were there in full force, and we left pretty quick. That was some game. S o. Cory, what is lead poisoning? So lead is it's an element and it's a neurotoxin, which means that if it's ingested in Children, especially it can lead to brain poisoning. So lead poisoning is really brain poisoning when a child whose brain isn't yet fully functioned, usually kids that air age six years old or younger? Either through paint paint, dust or water that may have led or leading soil. If it's ingested into their body. It absorbs into their blood, and then it absorbs into their muscle and bones. One of their muscles, you know, being the components of their brain, and once it's in their brain it xgames over. And where is lead poisoning more present? So Children are more likely to be lead poisoned in old housing. In 1978, the United States banned lead from being permissible to be used in paint. And prior to 1978 lead was used sort of as a filler and paint and it was just extremely prevalent throughout the United States. So in buildings that are older than 1978, is where Children are most susceptible, and most of those buildings exist in big cities. Which have low income housing because those buildings of the type that are rarely renovated or um, kept up with by landlords. Whether the landlord is a public entity or private entity and in cities like New York or Cleveland or Chicago or ST Louis, where housing is scarce, and there's more people that want to live in space than actually has have space that exists. Children and parents are oftentimes forced to live in housing that contains lead paint, and it's in those places where most Children are most susceptible. Now, what is your experience with lead poisoning? So you know, from a professional perspective, I've been handling lead, lead based paint cases and other lead poisoning cases for almost my whole career. Presently, my most vast experiences in both Flint, Michigan, where we represent about 3000 Children at this point individually, who are all lead poisoned by consuming the water. In Flint and in New York City, where hundreds if not thousands, of kids have been exposed to lead based paint in New York City housing authorities buildings. A lot of people don't know, but the housing authority is the biggest landlord in the city. That's the biggest land would in the country. Yeah, I mean, the population of public housing in New York City is about 400,000 people, which is roughly the same size of the population of Boston, Massachusetts. So just for perspective, Most people consider Flint today. To be possibly the worst man made disaster. That's that's occurred in modern times in terms of the lead being tainted with the water being tainted with lead. At the peak of the Flint water crisis. They were roughly 100,000 citizens and Flint in New York City. Public housing, There are 400,000 citizens. So the scope of the potential crisis in the New York City Housing Authority is four times as large is what exists in Flint, despite the fact that it's not really getting the same national attention that exists presently and certainly existed previously in Flint. Now when you said there were Hundreds of Children. How many Children do you currently represent? So in New York City alone and asses to the housing authority we represent about 250 individual Children now who all had lead levels at some point in time since 2012, all of whom lived in public housing. We expect that number to grow significantly. You know the stories of lead and paint and Nitya. It's fresh. It's new. You know, you have In New York City. You have the ability to file a claim against the housing authority until a child is roughly 19 years old. And so you can have Children who today are 18 years old, who may have been lead poisoned in 2000. Who are just now realizing either because they're seeing through the media the coverage of the night to lead crisis or because they've searched on the Internet, you know issues that they've had to deal with. And so at this stage when we were in Flint, we probably didn't have many more clients than we do now in night, but over time as the as the information becomes more public. And as the conduct that occurred, which allowed the crisis to occur becomes more public. People start to come out and say, Oh, my God, this happened to my child. This happened to me. What is some of the signs that want to look for Symptoms? Yes. So a child, a child who has been lead poisoned will over time show Significant cognitive deficits. You know, you're reading paragraph three of a book and you can't remember Paragraph one. They also show significant aggressiveness. And so you may have a child to previously. Was, you know, gentle, calm, Nice and has a little brother. And then, as the lead poisoning sets in, they just become extremely aggressive. It's very frustrating for Children who who can't read Paragraph three without forgetting, paragraph one who don't know why they're being aggressive toward a younger sibling. And so the thing, stress and the and the anxious nous that comes from being lead poisoned, just adds fuel to all of the issues that Children have, but ultimately overtime. Kids who are lead poisoned. Are far less likely to graduate from high school. They're far more likely to be left behind at least one time, if not more when they're in great school because they're less likely to graduate from high school. They're far less employable once they reach an age where employment is appropriate for them. And so you create communities where you have quite a number of people who had the capability of doing something when they were born, You know, we're all born with Um some potential don't know what everybody's potential is. It's hard to measure. But every one of us is born with some level of potential and what lead poisoning does is, it takes away a child's potential. How would someone Get in contact with you if they think their child was poisoned by lead, Yes. So we way take calls and emails all the time from parents and sometimes, thankfully, their Children. Listen, I wish that there that I didn't have this this expertise. I mean, I have Children of my own. And so I would much prefer to handle a different type of case where It doesn't involve Children who were brain damaged permanently. But to the extent anybody ever wants to get in touch with us, you know, my my phone number is is public, but it's 212605. 6 to 98. You can also call six year old five. Sorry to 126056200 and my email addresses. See Stern s t e r n at Levi Law l e v Y l a w dot com I'm on Twitter..

How I Built This

"So what are the guiding principles of creativity is that some of you very best ideas. Come out of sheer frustration products like honest tea or cliff bar olders dyson these all came about because their founders couldn't find the beverages or energy bars or shoes or or vacuum cleaners that they wanted so they invented them but in the case of Tristan Walker. I think it's safe to say that he didn't just start from a place of mild frustration. He actually started from a place of being fed up even angry because for most of his life he had felt completely league ignored totally overlooked whenever he walked into the shaving. I'll drugstore virtually all the big shaving brands were making products that worked well on men with relatively straight hair but tristen couldn't find a high quality razor that worked on his curly facial hair without leaving razor bumps olivarez neck Kajol line and he knew that like him many African American men were dealing with the exact same problem so he decided to design bevill a shaving system with a simple single blade razor that was easy on his face and he wanted everything about the product to look and feel great not like the dusty boxes of shaving products for African American men that we seem to be on the bottom shelves at the drugstore and his ambition to build a black owned and led consumer Marand as big as Johnson Johnson or proctor and gamble but of course when I tried to raise money from all those VC firms on sand hill road in Silicon Valley and he got a lot of knows but eventually he was able to launch his company with a razor some shaving cream but of oil and brush and over the past five years his brand has grown to include more than thirty specialized hair and beauty products for men and women which are now sold and lots of big retailers lers across the country a few weeks ago. Tristan sat down to tell me how he did it in front of a live audience at the Lincoln Theater in Washington. DC tristen Walker Central. I'll take it so let's start. Let's start at the beginning. Tell me about about out your childhood knew you grew up in Queens where I like to describe. It is a bit of the Rosa grew from concrete story. I grew up in Queens New York projects. It's Welfare Bouts of homelessness that sort of stuff right and I realized very early at one goal in life and as as wealthy as possible as quickly as possible Salaam. I realized three ways to do it. I was to be an actor athlete that didn't work second second was to work on Wall Street that didn't work in the last entrepreneurship and then thank goodness. I came to that realization. We were a little boy. A A your dad died. He was killed killed and you grew up with an older brother and your mom. What did your mom do yet for work so oh my mom worked three jobs mainly New York City Housing Authority Administrative Assistant? She spent some time working for Time Warner Cable and she did some retail all at the same time within seven days. I don't know how she did it. She did it. Thank goodness for her. It was not easy but she persevered and as a result of I think her perseverance good fortune beam I graduate college in my family and she she really in what what do you remember about like your neighborhood growing up as a kid I mean would did you do. Did you add in do much because I couldn't do much like my father was killed. When I was three years old? I don't remember too much about him other than the fact that he was killed when I was three years old which is a little bit telling to Kinda type of environment that I did grow up in so you know I lived probably the first six seven years of my life live in Jamaica Queens New York forty projects in the time I turned around seven years old. We moved to flushing Queens. Another project can development and it was much of the same right. My mother was like you're going to be the one you're not gonNa go through this stuff very disciplined. Stay home. Get Your studies and you're not going outside. When I snuck snuck outside? She caught me. I got in a lot of trouble but that was really kind of my life right. Get to school get home. Do you work repeat and you know that discipline actually Kinda got me to wearing them. Now school easy for you has a kid yeah. I was a good student because the discipline that was inspired me I always excelled right. I tended to be at least up until high school anyway at or near the top of my class you know and I kinda slow down when I say that stuff because by the time I got to high school. I realized I didn't even know what a verb was right. I wouldn't do this entire time. All the way up until my high school years doing really really well at the top of my class not even knowing what verb now and that sort of thing was as a teenager you ended up going to this really elite private boarding school hotchkiss in Connecticut the way I like to describe posh kisses is the first time I got to see how the other half lived. I went to school literally rockefellers Ford's right and I learned a couple of things first name mattered to being wealthy wasn't same as being rich and the last and probably the most important was I can compete with each and every one of them while while while I didn't know Oh what a verb was I learned and by the end of my four years they're you know on a roll like that. Sort of thing you know is then absolutely just wonderful experience for me but transformative in a little bit different from how I grew up was it was the transition for you when you got there because you were like fourteen years old. I've been living away from home since I was thirteen fourteen years old and were the first few months at hard for you. academically we get to the school and I realize I don't even have a computer and you know all of my other classmates had computers that sort of thing and I went to leave as the English professor who is my adviser at the time and I remember he took me to this basement. We're all used textbooks are and then he was old compaq like Presidio L. Computer that we had the like hall out and take it to my room so academically. It was very tough because I wasn't equipped with the tools to compete but over the years accelerating so you fish you go to Stony Brook University New York to study economics. Most most students don't necessarily know what they're gonNa do but did you have a sense of what you want to pursue their and what you thought you would do after I mean I was always thinking about the after I wanted to get wealthy yeah I was pretty singular in that help very singular in that hope and overtime that's kind of morphed and changed and the things that are important Ed Morrison changed but I knew I was very very very focused on how to get there and Wall Street was the next greatest option. All this silicon valley stuff at new idea about my world was New England so you're thinking do this degree and I'll go into finance plows e- economics is the closest degree we had at Stony Brook again to Wall Street Okay and in between my first and second year of university I got an internship and Lehman Brothers back office halfway through I I said I want to try some of this front office stuff so I left that enjoined trading desk at the time just observing so when you graduate so you you went actually went to work for Leman and then as a traitor and then everything and eventually JP Morgan in that time at that time time period. Did you still think this is what I should be doing. This is my sort of path to the worst years of my life. This is two thousand and five when I joined the company and as a traitor. Your job is to make money
