How to Fill a Few Seats At The Cinema? Rent Them to Gamers

"March in the early throes of the coronavirus pandemic. We brought you a story about how a devastated movie theater industry found a glimmer of hope by turning to that old american classic the drive in movie theater that hope was short. Lived though as many drive ins were forced to close because of stay at home orders in some cities and cold weather and others. But now there's another small light at the end of the tunnel for an industry. That's been gutted by the pandemic this time. The story starts in south korea with movie theaters around the country closed or operating at a limited capacity and film releases largely on hold due to covid south korea's largest cinema chain. Cg v had a bright idea. the company started renting out. It's largely empty theaters to folks who might enjoy the use of a big screen and surround sound. You know video gamers gamers. Pay up to a hundred and thirty five. Us dollars to rent out a theater. Video games consoles and controllers not included and renters. Told the bbc that gaming in theaters pretty cool the sound quality is top notch and the graphics are almost lifelike turns out a. Us theater chain was already on the gaming in the theater trend after a gutting year for the cinema industry most us movie theaters shut down in march early on in the covid. Nineteen pandemic and while some chains opted to carefully reopen some locations. Last summer those were shuttered again. In the fall when cases spite put simply putting up two hundred people in a room while they sit on coke munch on popcorn at the screen. Well you know. It's just not safe so malka theaters which operates thirty-six cinemas in the southern. Us rolled out. Its malko select gaming at several locations. Last november up to twenty gamers can book a theater for one hundred and fifty dollars in play until they drop or until three hours is up. Whichever comes first. i'm thinking it might be. The latter malko also allows customers to book private film screenings for up to twenty people and sells food and beverage packages alongside the reynolds malkhaz twenty twenty revenue down ninety percent from twenty nineteen thanks to the covid nineteen pandemic and while renting out theaters to gamers film. Buffs is one way to avoid closing down completely. It's not making the chain much money. Karen melton malkhaz vice president and director of marketing told the bbc quote. It's gaining traction and becoming popular but nothing is adding to our profitability at this point on quote and that's the harsh reality for many theater chains. Amc theaters has spent much of the pandemic on the edge of bankruptcy after revenue fell ninety one percent. The chain managed to raise over nine hundred million in new equity and debt capital rap reported. The injection allows the chain defend off bankruptcy for now. Amc started renting private theatres last fall at around ninety nine dollars a pop for screenings though not for gaming although for an extra hundred bucks you can score a microphone to welcome your guests. Meanwhile screen rental from rival cinemark costs around one hundred dollars another chain. Alamo draft house offers private screening starting at three hundred dollars which includes tickets and food when you think of the average pre virus movie screening with around two hundred customers paying an average of a little over nine dollars for a ticket. That's eighteen hundred dollars that the theater brings end before even popping a single popcorn kernel at the often pricey concession stand private screenings and video game parties just can't cut into all that red still on the horizon for cinemas is. Well what is that. Hope as a million americans received the covid nineteen vaccination each day some theater chains are cautiously reopening at diminished capacity. Of course most amc theater locations are open in accordance with state and local guidelines and malka reopened several theaters in late january and earlier. This month of course strict guidelines are in place for one you can say goodbye to endless soda and popcorn refills and in theater service but still after the year that the cinema industry has had anything is better than nothing. Even if at anything involves a little. Mario kart

Experts talk about the impact of Trump’s Georgia call on the Senate runoffs

"Thanks for joining us. The president is peddling baseless claims of election fraud. This time over a leaked phone call to a republican election official fueling a new political firestorm as georgia prepares for a pivotal runoff election. That may reshape. The nation's balance of power. Here's abc's steve olson. Saami it's the last push in the final hours before the us senate runoff election in georgia in the candidates in their parties. Biggest names are working overtime to convince enough voters to punch their ticket to washington our countries depending on you powers learn your head more than three million people. George already cast ballots in early voting. That took place in december. A million more than the total turnout for the last run off in two thousand eight. The choice is between republican incumbent. Senator kelly lovelier david purdue and democratic hopefuls. Jon saw and raphael warnock. The war for the majority of the senate comes down to georgia dish here and we need you all of us to stay in that breach. It looks like y'all ready for election five calls or texts today about voting. We'll keep the liberals away. It is time to vote like we have never voted before georgia. Each of them has been trying desperately to get their voters to show up at the polls second time never before has a runoff election in this state met so much it will determine who is in charge of the. Us senate sets the agenda. Who sets the policy with control of the senate on the line. People far away from georgia are all wound up in the states businesses from the white house. Twitter fight like hell. I'll tell you right to hollywood. Work isn't done. Everybody matters who wins. Get out and vote the outrage over a stunning phone. Call between the president and georgia's secretary of state. That's all the talk the night before the election. I just wanna find eleven thousand. Seven hundred eighty. You hear the president repeatedly asking brad rapids burger to give him more votes than biden's eleven thousand seven hundred and seventy nine vote lead in georgia and the hour. Long call lip brad. I gotta get. I have to find twelve thousand votes. And i have them times a lot to. What are we gonna do here. But i only need eleven thousand votes us. I need eleven thousand bucks. Give me a break. And and i'm not looking to blame anybody. I'm not just saying that you know under new cows and under new views of of the election results we won the election but rams burger who seek threats to his life over. All of this said no way. And there's nothing wrong with saying that you know that you've recalculated for mr president determines that you have is the data you have is wrong. You should want to have an accurate election. And you're a republican. We believe what we have an accident election. The georgia secretary of state continue to reject the president's wild claims of election fraud on good morning america. Did you consider it a lawful requests and the president asks you to find the votes lawyer. All i know is that we're going to follow the law. Follow the process truth matters. And we've been fighting these rumors for last two months. There are many who believe that it is no accident. That president trump is focused. Many of his claims a fraud on fulton county the largest in the state. It isn't just a blue county. It's also a largely black county and the president is being accused of trying to overturn the minority vote. Probably county is totally corrupt. They cheated like nobody's ever cheated before later. In the call. President trump even suggests that by refusing to hand the president. The november election robbins burger was hurting the chances of republicans running in the runoff. And because what you've done to the president a lot of people are going out to vote you would be respected if really respected if this could be straightened out before the election you have a big election coming up on tuesday. What's happening in georgia is a perfect storm. It is a telenovela in the making. It's gotta be confusing for republican georgia voters to hear that the elections in georgia and trustworthy at our fraudulent and have been manipulated and then wondered. Ask themselves well. Then why should i bother to tonight. President trump is still holding onto his false claims of fraud and still talking poorly about state. Officials were literally speaking truth to power. There's no way we lost your. This will be here a year and a half. And i'm going to be campaigning against your governor. And you're crazy secretary of state. We are a party of law. and order. georgia's lieutenant governor jeff dunkin who's both a republican and a trump supporter says. He wishes someone at the white house could have kept the president from making that phone. Call right before the election. What do you think about the possibility of folks looking into whether or not. The president broke a law with that phone call. I'm not a lawyer. So i'm going to let the lawyers go figure that out but i am qualified to tell you that that was an inappropriate phone. Call the longer that we try to use the excuse of voter fraud and misinformation to be the reason why we lost this presidential election. The longer it's gonna take for us to build our next platform. Duncan is part of a group of republicans. Who run this state. And we'll tell you to your face. That joe biden won the election here in that saying. So it's what's right. This is all about trust. I've got to look in the mirror. But more importantly i've got look at my three boys in the face. I spent all day trying to tell them to do the right thing. Always do the right thing. I can't imagine walking in that house one night and telling them yeah. I know i couldn't do the right thing. Today was on me. The forty five year old says. He's confident his two candidates can win despite the drama from pennsylvania avenue. I can't think of a single scenario where that phone call for. Sixty two plus minutes made any sort of difference in in getting david purdue and kelly leffler reelected but hopefully there's enough republicans at hang on tomorrow to show up and vote them in and represent our values. Historically democrats rarely win runoff elections in georgia. It's hard to get voters on the blue team to vote twice but former gubernatorial candidate stacey. Abrams says this is the year of the donkey. The national attention national investment as well as having a georgia infrastructure we were able to build a coalition in november. Is going to help come close to victory if not take it all the way. Abrams believes that her teams found the key to winning. We certainly were one of the most diverse battleground states but that diversity is only opportunity if we don't do the work to harness it. We were able to bring together. A latino population who's voting presence. Increased by seventy two percent over two thousand sixteen for asian american pacific islanders. It was a ninety one percent increase for african americans. It was a twenty percent increase.

Small Loans, Large Cost

After The Fact

Small Loans, Large Cost

"This season. we're going to be telling you about states of innovation literally stories about states that are taking new and creative approaches to problems and finding solutions make lives better in this episode. We look at ohio. Many people live paycheck to paycheck and sometimes accumulated bills. Outstrip that paycheck. For twelve million americans. This episodes data point. The answer is to turn to payday loans. But sometimes a small loan turns into a problem. The notion of giving somebody is super high cost loan but then forcing them to repay it. Really quickly is actually the biggest part of the problem. A three hundred dollar loan with a fifty dollars in fees that comes due in two weeks that takes more than one. Third of a typical borrowers paycheck. Even before you account for taxes. Nick bork directs spews work to inform effective consumer finance protections. Those fees. He mentioned add up quickly altogether. An average annual percentage rate of three hundred ninety one percent. That's a far cry from the national average for a personal loan today at nine point three percent. But that's not the only issue something that people don't always understand. Is that people who use payday. Loans are actually banked. You have to have a checking account to pay loan because that's how the blender secures the repayment. The payday lender has access to your checking account. So they get paid first. Then you can't pay your mortgage than you can't pay your rent then you can't pay your car payment and so what do you do you go back to the payday lender and get another one. That's how the cycle starts. Nick explains how these loans came into existence. Haiti loans have been around for about a generation and about thirty years ago. Lawmaker said well. We wanna find a way to get credit to people who are living paycheck to paycheck. And we've got usery rates baked into our legal code. Almost every state has usury laws on the books. We're going to give an exception to payday. Loans to allow them to go higher than that but in exchange were going to force these loans to be really short so people. Don't get into trouble if you're in the situation of having to get paid alone in the first place and then two weeks later you lose a third of your paycheck. Well it creates what a lot of people refer to as the cycle of debt and this is how something that is supposedly a two week. Short term loan for the typical borrower ends up being a three to four month experience often five or six months by the time they get out of that debt. They've effectively borrowed. Say three or four hundred dollars which is typical. But they've paid five hundred dollars or more in fees more fees than the amount of the original loan. A number of states are starting to look at ways to make these loans to safer for consumers. Can you talk a little bit about what's been happening. And what makes some of these new approaches a little innovative in this area ever since payday loans came onto the market. It's been sort of like an experiment. And how do we make short term. Loans liquidity loans available to people who have damaged credit. Scores are living paycheck to paycheck. It hasn't worked very well and until recently the states that allowed payday loans haven't really figured out how to make it work better by trying to protect people from getting into too much trouble and make them short term loans. We're actually harming them. So let's change the law and let's give people more time to repay. Let's change the pricing structure. A little bit so yeah. It's going to cost more than a credit card. But it's not going to be four hundred percent and add a few more protections and you know now three states have done it and it's worked out really well well. Let's talk a little bit about the hallmark of what makes good change in this world. What are some of the hallmarks of of a successful innovative way of fixing this. That we've seen work in. Colorado or ohio were numbered. I can talk about this all day and the details really matter but fundamentally it's simple the state's law has to be changed so that a payday loan must be an installment loan that people pay off over several months and every payment that you make pays down part of the principal. It's it's calm analyzing installment loan. It's the way that installment loans usually work and on top of that you have to change the pricing structure. What we've seen in the states work really well. Is you limit the interest on the loan to thirty six percent or less but you also allow a reasonable monthly fee to help the lender cover their costs and continue making credit even to people with very damaged credit histories. The typical payday loan borrower has a five seventeen credit score. But if you have interest up to thirty six percent and a reasonable monthly fee colorado ohio virginia. They've shown that you can still make credit available and then third you just need. A couple of simple safeguards prevent lenders from enticing borrowers to refinance their loans. And that sort of thing so in two thousand eighteen when ohio past reform law. They did the things. I just mentioned. They required the payday loans to amortizing installment loans and they implemented a twenty eight percent interest rate cap plus a reasonable monthly fee.

Reuters Reporter On The Rise Of Single-Use Plastic During The Pandemic

"Face Shields takeout food containers bubble wrap for online orders. Plastic bags from grocery deliveries think about how much people around the world are relying on mountains of plastic to get through this pandemic we'll have that plastic is not recyclable, and even if it were the demand for recycled plastic is down plastic is made from petrochemicals and the price of oil is so low that the price of brand new plastic known as Virgin Plastic is low to Reuters investigative reporter Joe. Brock has been connecting the dots in this other pandemic, this plastic pandemic and he joins us now. Welcome. So paint us a picture here. What was the trend for single use plastics before the coronavirus pandemic? Before the pandemic, the mom single, you slapstick woods with going out but particularly the case in developing countries where you've got a rising middle class, the condemn any exacerbated that trend and winning your investigation found was that big oil companies are hoping for a continually realising demand for new plastic, which is also made from fossil fuel. So they see that as a growth opportunity for their industry, right? That's correct. You're seeing oil and gas companies struggling. During the pandemic is your price has has dropped but as a longer term trend as we move towards electric vehicles greener energy. That is an abundance of cheap oil and gas, and that needs to go somewhere for these companies to remain successful and one of the key growth areas is me plastic for developing economies and that's what we're seeing huge amounts of investments, hundreds of billions of dollars in new petrochemicals, plants as they try and take advantage of that are these same companies that are investing in producing more new plastic. Are they also investing in recycling efforts? So these companies absolutely say that they take the waste crisis extremely seriously and they won't be part of the solution. What investigation was intended to do was to interrogate that claim I'm what we found was the investments they're making in recycling a vague and those ones that could be calculated or fraction of the money that they're spending on expanding plastic production. So the situation you have is you're trying to upper floor with a hand towel while the bosses Agra flying. Then instead of tying the topples, you start increasing the pressure. Okay we'll your investigation also found that the price of new plastic had dropped significantly during this pandemic as a result of these cheaper oil prices. So what does that mean overall for the business of recycling business being catastrophic for some smaller recycling firms because covid has led to a flawed using lease plastic but dropped the price at new plastic. So it's very difficult for those companies to compete and ready operating on extremely find margins. I mean, we should remind everyone that recycling was never going to be the solution to all the excess plastic trash produced worldwide right? Exactly. I think what's important for people to understand is that only a fraction of plastic gets recycled also most bostick cannot be recycled since nineteen fifty, six point three, billion tons of plastic waste being produced ninety one percent of has not been recycled. So can I just ask you then what do you think is the answer taller this Recycling, shutting the caught, the answer, a huge amount of investment needs to go into that from governments from consumer goods, companies to the plastic producers themselves. But is another elephant in the room here, which is we need to stop producing so much single use plastic on ultimately what it comes down to is profit margins versus the good of the planet climate on some of the poorest communities in the world right.

Why Pros Can't Beat the Market, but You Can by Chris Reining

Why Pros Can't Beat the Market, but You Can by Chris Reining

"Why pros can't beat the market, but you can buy Chris rining of Chris. rining. Dot Com. A small part of my investment portfolio is an index fund tracking the market, and apparently I'm not alone over the past few years. Trillions of dollars have flowed into index funds as people realize highly paid professional money managers seldom beat the market. Bill. Man after spending eight years running active funds explained why that's a difficult task. Quote Fund, managers are under pressure to be predictable by showing low tracking error, which essentially means funds have to try to beat their benchmarks while tracking their benchmarks closely. Does that remotely make sense? End Quote? To say that another way fund managers become closet indexes. For instance, if they say they're benchmark is the S. and P. Five hundred they need to assemble a portfolio of stocks that closely resembles the S. and P. Five hundred because if they're fund underperforms its benchmark investors pull their money out. And that's the game fund managers are playing to attract and keep the most money because fees are percentage based the fund with ten billion dollars under management rakes in more than the three billion dollar one. But. Here's what took me years to realize saying that professional money managers can't beat the market has. Nothing to do with what you can or can't do please listen to that again. Here's why small-time investors like you and me have an enormous advantage over any professional. One you're a speedboat there a battleship. You're investing small amounts of money, not many hundreds of millions or billions. What do you think happens when a fund manager finds an underpriced stock and starts buying millions worth it causes the price to go up and there goes the advantage. To No one's looking over your shoulder. Fund managers have bosses breathing down their neck making sure they're tracking their benchmarked prevent withdrawals. It's the old nobody ever got fired for investing in IBM, or now Apple Syndrome. It's very hard to get market beating results when you're forced to invest conventionally. Three you didn't study investing. The SMART, people with Mba's who study modern portfolio theory and understand those squiggly lines on technical charts have been conditioned to believe investing can be broken down into some science like engineering or physics. So neat and tidy. nope. It can't markets involve messy people. Anyone can pick stocks trying to beat the market that doesn't mean everyone should stocks take a certain set that outlined before in my blog and it helps to have help which is why I use Motley fool stock advisor. Speaking of them, there's no question there. Stock Picking Methods beats the market because they're picking better than average docs from their website as of today five return up sixty percent S. and P. Five, hundred up thirty seven, percent seventeen year return up three hundred, eighty, two percent S&P Five, hundred up ninety, one percent over the past five years they've eaten the market by twenty, three percent. And so if you're interested in picking stocks, it might be as simple as buying and holding their latest recommendations for years to come sure you'll get some picks wrong and that's okay. The idea is your winners will more than make up for the losers and I know because I've picked some duds but my returns still beat the market. This is similar to how Jeff bezos thanks. Quote we've made doozy's like the fire phone and many other things that just didn't work out. We don't have enough time to list all of our field experiments, but the big winners pay for thousands of field experiments and quote. anyways, one of the most phenomenal small-time investors I know is Saul. Rosenthal. He's been compounding money at thirty percent or so for thirty some years but also works harder at it than anyone. He currently owns nine stocks only his very best ideas and always thinks deeply about them trying to find his blind spots. You might think having your life savings in nine stocks is nuts but I've learned it's better to have a small portfolio where you know a lot about a few companies than some gigantic portfolio were you know little about lots? I've trimmed my portfolio to fifteen stocks and at index fund it feels good of course, running a concentrated portfolio like that takes more work when all your eggs are in one basket, you watch that basket. But if you find the work enjoyable like it's a game for you, the results can be life changing. Does all this make sense I bet you'll always hear things like if professional money managers can't beat the market with their huge budgets and computing resources then neither can you Again just because they can't beat the market has absolutely nothing to do with what you can or can't do value investor monae per Bri. said it best quote investing is a peculiar business. The larger one gets the worst one is likely to do. So this is a field where the individual investor has a huge leg up on the professionals and large investors and quote.

Gross profit was down thirty four percent they laid off or furloughed about twenty seven hundred employees out of their sixty three hundred employees, and they also have a new CEO and coo left, so it's been a wild couple of months for your opponent hasn't been great. I'm glad you mentioned the management change because that was something I. SORTA noticed this morning when I was reading about this quarterly report and one of the statements was from interim CEO Aaron Cooper Aaron. Cooper's Bennett groupon for a decade or so, but I was like well. Wait a minute. What's the interim and yeah, as you mentioned a couple of months ago? The board basically said that the CEO the chief operating officer and the. Oh, yeah you. You're both Outta here. So. I'm not even sure where the silver lining is right now with group on because on top of everything else last week they executed the dreaded reverse stock split, and in this case it was a one for twenty. Stock splits so for those unfamiliar. Regular stock split is you sometimes companies will come out and say hit a two one split. If you own it for every one share you own your now going to have to, but of course the prices cut in half the reverse split is the opposite because they're trying to boost their stock price, and so they came out and said forever twenty shares you own. You'RE GONNA. Get One so I mean the management shake-up. The fact that Aaron Cooper has been there a decade and still has the interim tag on his CEO Title I. Don't Know Him, but I think it'd be a little miffed if that were the case. You have to wonder what the board is up to there. And then you know you and I were talking about this earlier today. Maria I. Mean this is we're in the middle of a pandemic. I think of group on I know. They have several business lines, but I think of them as more of like the experience company for a long time that's been their marketing like. Hey, go out and take a hot air balloon ride and we're going to get you a discount on that and that sort of thing and. Know again. It's not all of their business, but they are really taking a hit in this environment. Yeah, I think that the experiences is really where they get their bread and butter. That's what they're known for they are trying to look they break out their revenues in terms of their local and their travel revenue travel revenues less than ten percent local revenues, almost ninety one percent of that revenue, but a good chunk of local revenues experiences within that local space and so i. don't think that. That will bounce back anytime soon. I guess the only silver lining would be that as state start reopening, people and companies will be so desperate for anyone to come. have really good deals in the TRI news utilized. groupon and people will try to utilize it if they don't have. That steady income that they're used to, but it's still not a great outlook for groupon. It's a good point and I think that. One of the things they talk about active customer base. It'll be interesting to see if they're able to grow that in the next three to six months. I'm wondering if you think I mean. They have between North America where they have about twenty five million active customers and an international of of North America another sixteen million, so they got about forty forty, two million active customers. This is not a big company. The market cap is about seven hundred fifty million dollars. Do you think? Do. You think someone's going to swoop in and by group on just so they can get that active customer base, or do you think that there are still enough question marks that? That's not in the cards right now I. think it would be kind of a smart acquisition for some people to get you that bigger customer base, and for people to continue to implement deals. Everyone everyone. I love a good deal. I know a lot of people who have a good deal so having those options are pretty smart. If you're a big retailer or you want exposure into at a growing customer base of people who are generally live in cities, like deals like experiences I feel like it's pretty uh smart to grow that customer base if you need to.

Squeezing a Bathroom Renovation Into 3 Flu Filled Days

"Also promised in that. podcast ask that we were going to give you an update on our bathroom renovation. I think we said it was lingering around the ninety two ninety one percent complete stage specific ninety to ninety. uh-huh think you were the specific one. I said ninety one update. It's still at that exact ninety to ninety one percent done stage because we've done nothing in the past week I feel like I've changed. Change the toilet paper roll. That's about it last week. Yes I think it got to the point where it was functional and everything else that's left on our to do list is kind of just like icing on the a cake like to get it to the place where we wanted to look the way we've always pictured but like it works like we have a shower we have tub. We have a toilet the TUB say. Oh guys the toilet do who is also life changing but let me just tell you this. Tub I'm obsessed with the TUB and the shower is it's like a whole full body experience to say that might sound grabbing. It's just my entire being likes being in the bathroom now and taking a shower and I'm just going to cut out for us to take back. I just have flaka. Happiness level cushion change. That is even surprising to me and I've been doing renovations for a long time but I just think like six years of Tub that I couldn't submerging shower. That was really dark. I think it's easy to tell yourself. It doesn't make a difference but it really when you take the time to update it is something that you soak up like. I'm not just over it. I'm not like okay. My eyes have adjusted bathroom. And now it's average like every time I walk in there I'm still like oh my goodness it's so amazing. Certainly still in the honeymoon phase. Nice but I think the other reason why like our pace has kind of like change in. There's like Ebony flow is because we went through a very fast paced couple of weeks right before the holidays and actually through the holidays because if you follow us on instagram you probably saw a little bit of this honor into stories. I think we reference in a blog post but we were kind of like chugging along like the shower took us longer than expected but that was fine because one of the parameters of this project was like we wanted to not have a deadline. Like we didn't want to stress over the timing. Yes yes remember that podcast. We were like. Here's how you do with the big renovation. Do not freak out a time line. Make it flexible. Oh did we make it flexible. He did just like so the tiles taking longer. It's going to be beautiful. Who Cares? There's no deadline. It's not like when my mom comes to visit at Christmas. We have to like have a perfectly titled Shower. No because it was our bathroom but if you saw the stories we suddenly only had deadline because we called our plummer to schedule him and he said Oh. I'm having knee surgery in four days and will be out of commission for five weeks so hello Sharon are like we have to have this bathroom ready for like the toilet and the Vanity Bathtub within four days actually three because he was coming on the fourth day. Yeah it went from like it's okay. If we don't do it now we can do it tomorrow to like but we don't want to wait five weeks in February suddenly when we were around Christmas and so we just we're like we're going to put our heads down. It's going to be one of those things where we're up so two in the morning we're really tired but in the end we're going to end up with a bathroom. That's fully installed within four days so like maybe it's it's worth it like. Sometimes you gotta be chill. Sometimes you gotta kick it into gear. Yeah I was the less confident in the completion and Sherry was because at the moment we found out our floor was was half tiled like we hadn't finished tiling the floor and that meant we had to finish the floor. We had to grout the floor and we also had this big wall molding treatment. We wanted wanted to do throughout the room. And I know that doesn't sound like a super long list. But if you've ever installed something like wainscoting or a board and batten or something there's there's a lot of different steps that take time beyond just the installation you also have to like caulk everything and let that dry and then paint everything and let that dry and same with the grouting. The floor like not only did we have to finish tiling the floor and let the mortar dry then we had to grout and let that dry and set before people can walk on it and so it was suddenly all these different different factors that we had to figure out how to squeeze in to that basically three day period. What's that give it hasn't Zach Galifianakis and it has all this math? Ask floating around. That was us where we were like. Okay maybe while the grounds drying we tiptoe on the big tiles because once the mortar sets you can walk on the tile. You just can't touch the grout out and wall that's trying will put in the trim on Tiptoe because if we just lined up all the waiting periods and didn't do anything between them we wouldn't make it in three and a half afd as well and then the universe throws a curve ball because the next morning so after we had figured out our timeline one of our kids came down with flu real bad you know which is not fun on its own owned by any means because there was lots of miss days of school like the entire week so one we also suddenly had to juggle caring for a sick child and then also the doctor it was like yeah. There's a good chance you guys are going to get it so now we have this thing in our heads. That's like well if Sherry or I get the flu in the middle of this tight deadline like we're not go to make it. I got coughed at in my face I got sneezed at into my mouth like I was. I actively have the flu. I'm just waiting for it to take my body like I felt like we were on the edge of a disaster so we work like furiously just feeling the flu chasing us down in the end. I did not get the flu well and I did not at the flu until after everything was done so we got the wall molding in we got the floor grounded. We actually hit the plumbers deadline. Perfectly away but then he called and pushed it back a day because they were cramming so much stuff any. We were last on the list that they didn't get to us so actually instead of the plumber coming he he sent his son and his partner who works with the group but like the plumber had wanted to come and finish the job himself since he had started it so it ended up being just fine. The only like hiccup was that the sun was not equipped to put the TUB in so before Christmas. We only got the toilet and the vanity. But you know what that was a win. I didn't care if the TUB needed to wait. I cared a little bit but it was okay because other thing to note is that we had not crowded the shower yet so we knew we weren't getting a shower because we switch gears completely from the shower because we're like we'll do the shower another time we gotta get the floor stuff done so at least the toilet vanity could come in well. We felt like a toilet and a sink was like the thing we used most like before bed and in the morning and so if we have to use the hall shower a little bit longer I was like no big deal. I was like no big deal. I'm going to take a nap. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah and then come down with the flu a one day grace period because we were so excited to have have the bathroom suddenly come together so quickly like it had seemed to be going at this moderate pace and then suddenly we had a half functioning room so we were encouraged encouraged by that and tried to use that momentum and turn our attention to our closet because that was the next big piece to make this room functioning again. Well I think we were like it's been four days and neither has got the flu. We're safe and we started new project and John had the flu while we did that. One I think I was clear for the day that we constructed all the boxes. You know we use the PACS system and so we had to build all of the actual like frames for it but then the next day as we're starting to do the shelves and drawers and doors and all the other parts of it. I started to feel like my time had come and it was a weird flu. I don't know if anyone else had had it this season. I had it for I. I think seven days like basically entire week of Christmas and I didn't feel normal again until we left for Costa Rica like the morning we got on our flight was the first day I felt normal and that was new year's Eve Day. Yeah it was definitely a shadow over the holidays. It was like our child solid week and then Jonah sell but it was like I I would be fine at some points like I was fine for Christmas morning. Thank goodness he rallied. I was fine to do some work on the closet like we got all the drawers assembled. I was able to trim out the the Pax wardrobes to make them look built in. But then it'd be like an hour later. I was like in bed with the most intense shivers and fever. I've ever had my life like I couldn't get warm and I could not move move motivate myself to get out when I describe it as John took to the bed and there was like a Ken. Someone get me a cold wash cloth like it was. It was a reenactment from a period film where someone had the plague and I was like. I can't get the flu because if I get it a week after John I get it for all of Costa Rica. I've carrying for him but I'm also trying not to contract and then give it to our other child who didn't have it so it was like a state of somewhat quarantine earn teen but I'm also taking care of the kids and by the way we have a house guests because it's the holidays and it was just nuts because sometimes john would be fine like we'd work on the closet and then sometimes is it would be like he must be in bed for forty eight hours and it happened so suddenly one time we were out running an errand and I felt it coming on as we were driving home and I had to get myself laying down so fast. I forgot to close the car door. L. Picture someone running sprinting into the house and then like two hours or three hours later I went outside and I was like. Why is the driver's side door? It was the next morning but I was like did generally take to the bed so quickly that he didn't close the door and that is actually what happened. It was intense but I am grateful that we didn't all get it. I'm grateful we were all better by the time we went to Costa Rica. I mean my appetite wasn't fully back so don't feel like I got to enjoy the food as much. I enjoy the shrimp Sivy. Che Immensely for you. Yeah well if that's the worst thing about the trip that I'm all good and again. It had a happy ending because we made a lot of progress. Because of all these deadlines. We suddenly got for the bathroom and we did get our shower and tub in after the holidays days and again now we just have like that last nine to ten percent left to do. Yeah and everyone's like oh I can't wait to see it and I'm like me to like we do really want this. Do we finish. Maybe in a few weeks will actually have it finished because it involves like we said some biggish things like hanging door and building the frame ourselves frosting it and painting it. So don't freak out. It's going to be

And Now For Some Big Duplex News

"Happy new year everybody is too late to say happy new year February wary New Year. Who did this I got somebody to tell you about who this was is moving? I said the WHO did this is that John is not not for the first time in three years sitting in a baby chair while podcasting he has graduated to an adult sized human share. Yeah New Year New podcasts setup. We're trying something different this year when the office. I'm in a normal office chair. We also other normal things. We have curtains over a plant. A blanket it over a lamp like one does. We'll put a picture in the show knows it is worth it. You might even want to pause this podcast go to the show right now and look at our new setup. We are professionals and the plant that the curtains are over is my biggest fiddly fig. I own looks like a ghost issues like covered in white curtains. But we do it for sound quality so I hope the sounds good. Hopefully it's worth at FIG but anyways we've been gone for a few weeks lots has happened. There was the holidays. We had our big family trip to Costa Rica in the bathroom. Almost finished like not quite I would say it's at what ninety ninety five percent. Yeah there's priming and painting of a largish object some hardware stuff to do door hangers. Don't have a door on her bathroom. Yes we enter frost so yeah we probably ninety one percent but it's functional is changing our lives so anyways we originally thought we'd spent his episode telling you all about that stuff but then something happened four days ago that we want to get you in the loop on so all that other stuff. I guess we'll have to wait for a future episode because today we have some big news about the duplex. It's huge. It's super surprising. You're going to be shocked. We were also very shocked. The news is is as of four days ago. We have accepted an offer from someone to buy the duplex from us. So we are selling the duplex. Everyone's screaming I can here okay. We assume people are probably surprised. And I know there's probably dozens of questions popping into your head and we will try to answer those today. We tell the story of how this all happened. But let's just say up front. Want like some of the short answers. One you didn't miss anything was on the market. This was sorta just like a surprising thing that happened. It will still be a vacation rental so he will still be able to go and stay there. And we are selling it furnished and with all the amenities and extras we stocked with so it will largely stay the same and look the same which which is good news as well right so like long story short. If you guys are like no because I wanted to rent it up so mad you can still rented it will look the same. It's in the same place. It's still designed by us. We you just never name on the deed. Yes because we're actually selling it to some friends who we trust immensely to run a vacation rental so it will be in very good hands and it will be more available to rent throughout the year like more dates than we've been able to make available so all good things. Shall we dive in. We shall dive in while. I WanNa make answer. We emphasize up front that this was not the plan like we bought this house in September of two thousand seventeen so it was like two and a half years. We bought it and renovated and furnished it with the assumption that we were going to own and operate it for years like this was never like a secret flip going on or whatever. Yeah well have you ever watch. TV and unlike day forty when they haven't sold the house they're like all freaking out lifts or such breakneck speed. I think two and a half years qualifies as not really flipped I think it was the opposite of breakneck. But which is is getting to is that we made a lot of decisions. That don't make sense for a flip so if you're looking at it from the outside and you're like wait. Why did you guys do tracks decking if you were just going to sell it in two and a half years is like you put more money in upfront for the no rot stuff? But it's because after like ten or twenty years. It's still not rotten like you get your money back by holding things long term and make these as long term decisions that are more expensive upfront so we like dumped a lot of money into it to be like when we hold it. It's GonNa last like courts counter top. I was GonNa say not even just that but if you look at the post we did all Lincoln a show about the budget for the duplex. Kitchen's like we admitted in that post that we spent more on things like counters and appliances than we probably showed tov like we probably went over budget on those things and so had we approach this as something that we were going to turn around and sell them two years. I'm sure we would have made different decisions. Like for instance. I wouldn't have you bought new patio furniture at the end of last season so that I would have lower maintenance patio furniture for this season like that was the plan we made for this coming summer right. We definitely planned to book it like I even even got a duplex stamp with our names on it like it definitely was not something we were planning. I would have saved thousands of just done butcher block instead of course into kitchens pitches. Let's not dwell on those things we we're moving. We're moving through this guy's just as you are probably moving through it with us. I mean so if that was our plan if our plan was hold for years you're probably wondering what changed and I think it started with a conversation that we had with our reels her out in Cape Charles. We're good friends with her. She has a house near your us in Cape Charles and so we bump into her like casually all the time like socially yes. This wasn't like a meeting at her office. Know exactly. It was not a planned thing but she said to us just in passing. Hey if you would ever open to sell in the duplex. I think I have someone who might be interested in buying it and sharing that kind of laughed it off like crazy idea like we're not going to solve the duplex like we have only operated rated at one year. Yeah I was like I will die with the duplex Michael dance like no one will probably do away from me. I don't know if I was there but we were relaying. This story to our friends later that night like our friends who have a housing Cape Charles. Also we hang out all the time and we were like hey funny story our realtor said she might have someone who is interested in buying the duplex duplex and they were like. ooh But if you saw the better sell us and we all were like and they were like what really they sort of earnestly said to us like no if you actually were ever ever open to this idea like talk to us because we would be interested in buying it and so that's what sort of planted the whole seed for this because it went from feeling like this crazy idea to this this thing as we gave it consideration that like maybe it's actually a smarter idea than we thought. I think the two things that were really compelling to us. Is that it really early aligns with this whole sort of minimizing. Simplifying thing that we've been doing bike. I know we've talked about it several times in the podcast but it has gone for us from being gene more than just about like simplifying our stuff and our belongings in our house but like also. How do we simplify our schedules and are spending and our stress and you know all all the things that make life overwhelming busy? Sometimes like we've been focused on that and we realize that well maybe this is a means to that end because not that the duplexes inherently stressful. Because there's there's a lot of it that we love like beyond just renovating version. Part of the operation of the vacation. Rental especially on their summer was like so much fun. Yes we were right next door. It was awesome because we could pop in fixed whatever and we were like all hands on deck. We're having a suburb of our lives. And I also relish the little like host to see things I liked putting together the welcome kits for people we already know. I got a special stamp for this upcoming season. Like I'm really into reading what they read in the guest books like our guests are lovely. Love the people. It was just more sort of the administrative the straight of Steph. Yeah I mean if you think about all the responsibilities of homeownership for your own home you know like your taxes your utilities your insurance your maintenance like we right now. Have that times four war because we have our house in Richmond. We have our Pink Beach House on Cape Charles and in the duplexes actually two separate homes so like we have separate water bills separate electric bills separate trash a separate rental taxes like a lot of the times to for us even though it's one building so the idea that we could simplify that going from juggling four different houses and pain eight four water bills and all that stuff to just go into was something that we felt like. Maybe that is in line with this goal of living more simply. Yeah I mean I think anyone knows if you're a landlord of a building or even have your own home when something pops up and goes wrong. It's like overwhelming. Because you're not expecting it right so if you're like oh on the second week of my paycheck. Suddenly it had to go towards fixing being a plumbing issue. That's not the greatest thing to pop up and I think if you imagine having four places that could pop up it's a first world problem for sure but it is something that is in the back of your mind. It's like a mental load like mental clutter. And I think anyone has that with any place whether it's an apartment Charandura House you own and with with the vacation rental there's extra stuff like scheduling the cleaner and responding to inquiries on AIRBNB and calculating and filing your monthly rental taxes. So there's also a lot of stuff above and and beyond a normal household that we realize really occupy a lot of our like mental

"ninety one percent" Discussed on WBZ NewsRadio 1030

"Ninety one percents say their state of mind happiness, but less than half say they have enough money to support themselves in retirement. How is that possible? Most folks are happy, and I'm glad to hear it. It's wonderful and at the same time less than half her confident that they have a nest egg large enough to support themselves in retirement. In fact, here's another crazy set of statistics eighty eight percent. Are confident in their ability to manage their finances. I'll ask you that question. Are you confident would you count yourself among the eighty eight percent are you confident in your ability to manage your finances? I'll bet you're saying, yes. Because eighty percent said yes. But less than half say they have a mistake large enough to carry them through retirement. Isn't there a disconnect there? How is it that you are confident in your ability and yet you don't have the nest egg you need to support yourself in retirement? So it seems that what you need to be doing is taking your so-called ability and translating it into action because a lot of folks might walk around saying, I know how to do this and good for you. If you're among them, but are you doing it? I mean, I know how to run, but that doesn't mean on capable of running a marathon. So we have to recognize that how. How you're feeling whether you feel happy whether you feel confident we need to measure those emotions against the stark hard data of retirement readiness. So that we can confirm that you are in fact justified in that and a lot of folks are kind of aimless about this because they've never really received any official real or effective retirement counseling. In fact, in the same TransAmerica survey only one out of twenty retirees say that they ever received retirement counseling from their employers. Have you have you ever gotten retirement counseling from your workplace only five percent half? And it's a little bit frustrating to us here at Financial Engines in particular because we're one of the biggest 4._0._1._K providers in the industry seven hundred fifty some companies that use. Our 4._0._1._K services representing ten million workers across the country. And one of the big focuses of our effort is financial education in the workplace, we provide massive amounts of education through group seminars all the way to individual one on one counseling if you're not getting it from your employer. Let them know that we can do it for you because you need the financial education. So that you can say for sure whether or not your happiness, and your confidence are in fact, justified by your financial behaviors because it's a really sad thing to say, gee, I've been happy all these years. I've been confident all these years only to discover. Ooh. That confidence that happiness a little bit misplaced. Not quite justified better to find that.

"Four thirty one ten we want to ask you, what's motivating you to vote because apparently based on the data many of you have record numbers actually that we're already seeing Jordan. Why don't we again kind of recap the program here? Yeah. What those numbers very voting. It's very impressive. Early voted. I usually like to vote on election days just to kind of see turnout, but I wanted to early vote this year because they were already for that. And could no with our broadcast everything they could spend three hours in line on election day. So in Tennessee. The I just want to underscore what these numbers are before I run through them. So in Tennessee, they're already at ninety five percent of the ballots cast in two thousand fourteen that means they're only five percent short of the total number of votes cast in the last midterm election. So without election day. So that means when you add another day of this probably what you probably have. That means you're almost probably at one hundred percent in Tennessee. So everything on on Tuesday means that it is additional. I mean that you were going to have a lot more people one hundred probably it'd be one hundred fifty percent of where it was. So it was already reached one hundred percent. Basically, you're going to at least get fifty percent more. What does that mean? Already one point three million ballots cast in Tennessee, Nevada's at ninety one percent again understand where ninety one percent of the numbers that last bit term eighty eight percent, Arizona. These are all battlegrounds, Texas, eighty four percent, Georgia's seventy percent and. So these states like Texas, Georgia these are in Texas. That means almost four million votes have been cast already in Georgia. That means almost two million votes have been cast already Montana at seventy percent. I mean, the state again where it's hundreds of thousands of votes will determine the election. At two hundred sixty two thousand votes. That's that's seventy percent. In a huge state, like Florida, three point seven million votes have already been cast. That's sixty two percents. That's well over your only forty thirty eight percent way of votes from surpassing. The last time we had a midterm election is state like Florida, you're going to do that election day the questions by how much I mean does Florida and you also get these are these are huge early vote. It also says that you know, it's hard to predict what that means for which party at this meowing, although your sense is it bodes well for Republicans. Would you don't no one really knows usually early voting favors Democrats. Right. But this number where we're blowing out the statistics of the past. I have to imagine that it's not just Democrats. It's also the the Trump voter who I distinguished from the Republican base or the or the democrat base. I think this is Trump voter who in most predictions. You would not. Think would show up at an election. He's done on the ballot. And yet he has done a very significant job. He's made the pitch constantly. He's he's doing this and saying I like vote like I am on the ballot. And that certainly has resonated with people who've been called into the broadcast is resonated with people who have been calling it. They are voting straight Republican for Donald Trump. So what what are you hearing from the Democrats on on Capitol Hill fan on this? When I was there last week. It was kind of they were still trying to figure out what all this means. And they're feeling that they say they're competent, but they're not going to say, they're not competent. But it's interesting. They're saying their confidence. Republicans running is if there ten behind. Yeah. Which is probably smart. You always should run like your ten behind even if you're confident that your ten ahead. Look, I think a lot of politicians who have lost elections that they thought they were gonna win. We'll tell you the same exact thing. Look Jay, I think Democrats are always happy when there's early numbers. But I think they're nervous about the extent to which the turnout was and I would just say this. Whether you're Republican democrat independent or otherwise, we can talk about the political impact, and we should. But look if more people are participating in the process that.
