What Is Tail Risk?
"Last week. The proven i got stuck in a rare snow and ice storm that hit texas where millions were without power and unable to heat their homes. We spent saturday night in el paso. Texas we saw there was going to be a winter storm between el paso and san antonio where we were heading where we were dropping off. My son and daughter in law's subaru that they had repaired back in tucson where we spend the winters we debated whether we should stay in el paso or not maybe way today but i thought i've driven in the snow a lot. It's a subaru. It has new tires. We should be just fine and indeed the car at least for the first day perform quite well. It was an absolute mess. There were so many wrecks at one point. There was a chinese woman in the middle of the highway waving us down. We thought it was another wreck. Turns turns out. She and her husband had got stranded on the other side of the expressway and needed a ride back to the next town where they had a hotel. It took us eight hours of driving. And we realized we wouldn't be able to reach san antonio. I rather son book too so hotel in oso texas because our cell phones weren't working right. The next morning the car was dead we put in a battery and then we started driving again. We didn't make it far. We got stuck at a rest. Stop our cell. Phones didn't work. It was fifteen degrees. I found found somebody that call the police for us rescue us but before the police arrived the car started against so we thought well at least try to get to the next exit and maybe we could get a hotel. The car stalled again. We posted about a half a mile off the highway and ended up stranded on the side of the road in sonora texas. It's not a very big town. There's no taxis there's no uber. We presume the problem was the alternator was out. We got a hold of my son who wanted to come and install a new one so we had to get back about thirty eight miles to sona texas where we had a hotel room. I least had the presence of mind to book another nights room at the hotel just in case something came up. We couldn't get back. I called the police. They said they couldn't help. They didn't have the resources that operator said call tow truck. Why did they weren't going to pick us up. They only tow cars. Aaa doesn't do it. Either they only arrange for toes reaced needed a ride back to her hotel. Was i call the auto parts store where i had paid a couple of guys to put the battery in. They didn't want to come pick us up. I had brett check. If we had any plus members in the area the closest one was in kerrville too. Far away i called our web developers in houston. Do they know anybody. In sonora turn their neighbor had family that live there but he was eighty and they couldn't get a hold of him on the phone. Finally brat got in touch with a local leader from the church of jesus christ of latter day saints that live an hour and a half away and it turns out he knew a couple in zona who said they were willing to come and get us complete strangers. They both worked for the school district. The husband and wife and they came. We were on the side of the road about two hours and it was cold the next day. His father in law came. They picked us up. And we made it san antonio barely because we had the head any gasoline because they're filling stations were closed or out of gas because of power. It was extremely rare event.

Three degrees in ninety six degrees. it rarely falls below. Freezing plotted graph. Temperatures in texas. Most of the observations would be in the middle around seventy degrees. This is a bell curve. A normal distribution fifteen degrees fahrenheit is where we were to the far left of this distribution and that far left is the tail tail events are extreme outcomes or very rare observations. Because they're in the tail on the ends of the distribution there called talibans tail. Risk is the personal harm. That's these extreme events can cause. How does it impact us. In the worst case we could be ruined. We could die or we could go bankrupt. We could run out of money. This weather event was hey tail event. It was an extreme of it. It was rare now. Pearl and i were in a. I wouldn't call it a dangerous situation. Certainly very uncomfortable. I have not been that stranded in many years. It took a while to find help. I've you were kind of at wit's end as investors we can control the amount of tail risk that we take we can protect against by buying insurance.

Mexico is their immigration cases wine through court and has left tens of thousands of asylum seekers waiting in dangerous conditions along the border. This is asylum.

What would happen every pain. I'm hoping to be there be bad. Be okay the vital. The biden administration is also deported. A man named paul perilous to haiti. Who knew your congress member. Mondaire jones had worked successfully stopped the deportation just weeks ago before biden was sworn in but around three m tuesday morning. He tweeted quote at three. Am my staff woke to an urgent call. Suddenly and in the dead of night ice was set to deport. Rockland county's beloved paul peerless. To haiti a country where he has never been unquote for more. We're joined by two guests in tijuana mexico. Eric opinion does with us an immigration attorney and the policy director for a low laval in english the other side also with us out of bogado senior reporter veal from the center for investigative reporting. We welcome you both to democracy now auto. let's begin with you. Can you explain what's going on. You have these executive actions that are extremely important including one that calls for a halt to deportations. This is the president of the united states and yet hundreds of people have been deported under this new administration. What is going on having me amy. What we're seeing is quite a departure from the previous administration. I don't want a discount. The importance appearances the importance of the way that the president of this country talks about in human being including people who may be detained or deported. we're also seeing a lot of really great language and the commission of a task force Another order to suspend deportations and yet we see a continuation of the same practices that happened under president trump previously endure obama. And i do think that there's a difference. There's absolutely a difference in tone but what we're seeing is for example with the commission of the tasks worse receiving. Dha outing which is at the same agency that separated children at the border. Now tasked with figuring out where where. These families aren't so little unclear. What will happen after that. And i think that a lot of people that have been talking to in in the last day or so since the executive orders announced it doesn't really go far enough and also sets a commission in in some cases a task force for something that allowed people voted on the biden ticket as sort of stood against all of that stood against those families operations to the that we now need a task force to figure out how to move forward with having something in place when by also has the house and the senate of rings hollow from people. Erica i wanted to ask you about your clients. Alvero and his son alvarado junior who just turned nine years old. The little boy said all he wants for his birthday is to be reunited with his father. They've been separated since he was six years old. This is auto speaking to nbc news about the day. The two were separated. An officer told me. Give me your children's things because you are going to different places. And i didn't know what was going to happen to my child. So erica pineyro if you can talk about among the executive orders are this issue of separation. The hundreds over six hundred children still left. It's believed Separated from their parents. In some cases the administration doesn't even know where the parents are in hundreds of cases. They may well be in the united states and another few hundred they may be outside the united states but i mean clearly biden is put a top priority on this because the people serving on this committee or the secretary of homeland security. My arcus just confirmed the secretary of health and human services the former attorney general of california bestseller and the attorney general yet to be confirmed and first lady joe biden.
Targeting New Builds to Get Around the W-2 Requirements for House Hacking with Andres Bustamante
"Andreas brother. Welcome to the real estate ricky. Showman excited to have you on. Thank you so much for giving the opportunity. I appreciate it. I'm going to dive into your store in a bit here but before we do share with us a little bit about you got you in a real estate. And what brought you here today to chat with this. Of course so right now. Twenty four years old on from el paso texas. And i started in austin when i was nineteen. I got into the university of texas at austin. And tell you the truth. I was an undeclared business major. But i thought i wanted to do supply chain. I had heard one of my friends talking about supply chain. And i was like dude. This school saw apply for that got supply. Gene was really what i wanted to do at the senior freshman year. I got my real estate license. Just out of luck. I initially wanted to be a lifeguard. And i did not my certificate so i said you know what. Let's just do real estate because a friend told me they thought i'd be good at it so freshman year sophomore year. I did a lot of leasing. And i met a lot of people junior and senior year. That's really picked up. And with leasing i was able to become financially independent from my parents was able to pay my housing expenses and my college tuition which was amazing so fast forward i graduated with a degree in international business and real estate and the summer of two thousand nineteen was really like a. What am i going to be doing. Am i going to be doing fulltime real estate. In which is commission based or am i going to do commercial real estate. Which was what i initially wanted to do. Which is an eight to five job. So i read a lot. I listened to your pocket. That's very much started. Summer of two thousand nineteen and i decided to trust my gut and do three months four months of fulltime real estate. So i go back to austin in november. I need the of course. Hope through bigger pockets. He had an episode at the end of that. Diego mentioned season austin. And i was like wow i should just reach out so i give him a cold call. We meet up. And eventually i get on his team in january of twenty twenty and fast forward to now first year of real estate sales. I've done fifteen closings. I have fifteen hundred contracts that are going to close year and one house hacked. I currently live in another house under contract that closes in two months and an airbnb. That's going to close in four months. That is an amazing story. And the i love the most is that you started out as a leasing agent because i always push for people to get into real estate somehow to learn how to do it. They're nervous or they don't even know what exactly real state can do for you as an investor. So what would be your advice to someone about getting into a position like that. Leasing agent property management. How did you get that job with having no other real estate experience. Of course i mean with this my friend thankfully he just told me on the rest. I think you'd be good at it. You're people's person and you get along with people easily so like you know what i'll just do it. I applied for the job and at first it was like you know what i'll just least once in a while but when i started doing it a law junior year when i noticed that real estate really gave me the time to do real say whenever i wanted so if i had finals like you know what i'm not gonna do real estate this week. I'm going to focus on finals and i didn't. I could do real estate and also the fact. They didn't have my own boss. So i decided by wanted to kill it in real estate. I'd go all out. And if i didn't i mean i could see the results so with this that really let a fire in the and it was crazy just setting the systems through my freshman sophomore year to get clients referrals. The property managers. I just let them know. Hey i'm gonna send you to clients over the property. Managers are like all right. That's fine and if they signed it'd be like five hundred dollars per bed. Or a percentage of the monthly rent. So that was amazing. I really really enjoyed that. So how that was set up was you were a realtor working for a brokerage and you reached out to the property managers in lease them. You weren't hired by the property. Managers per se correct. So as onus agent you get to take clients for example. I have some clients. They give me their needs. Ask a lot of questions and then from there. I'm like okay. Three apartment complexes apartments really they offer incentives for realtors the commission because of the fact that they need people. So i'm the one bringing the people and they give me a commission. Because i was the one that brought them so i mean all of my friends. Group were my clients. Everyone needed a place to live so with this. There was like the perfect job in college. Had my own time. And i didn't have a boss and i mean junior and senior year through the money i made i was able to pay for college and housing and then through a reversal that i got through leasing. I got to do a one point. One million dollars sale i ever sale and i swear i did not know anything about sales that i just dove into it with a partner because when i got that sales referral. My friend has like yeah. He wants to lease on the phone. Like what's up dude. What's your criteria. Like yeah my budget's a million to three million solves like i had no idea what the do sales like. Okay i'll give back to you. I partnered with one of my friends and long story. Short i learned. Hoa was which. I didn't know what it was before. I learned a lot of other things that experience and yacky closed on one point one million dollar condo

Covid-19 cases are on the rise in all 50 states, taking a toll on healthcare workers
"Rise hospitalizations rise deaths rise. Were really hitting a bad part of this pandemic all over again and one of the things that we always like to check in on is our doctors or nurses are healthcare workers. It's been a tough go for them. You know they're the ones on the frontlines dealing with the patients all the time and helping people get better and we've done stories in the past before already on the podcast about the burn out that the doctors and nurses are facing some of them are retiring early all that jazz but right now you wrote an article sarah how some of this coronavirus disbelief is really affecting them. You know it's hard for them to go there every day but still constantly hear people say that it's not as bad as it seems or it's a hoax etc etc. So tell us a little bit about some of the conversations you were having with doctors and nurses about this. So i spoke with several doctors and nurses across the country and basically what they described or treating patients who are seriously ill in the hospital as part of their job and then going home and either in the line at the grocery store or through family or friends and family hearing from people who think the viruses hoax or just not as serious as public health officials have said it is and they say that that sort of disbelief on top of months of physical and mental demands of caring for very sick patients during the pandemic is frustrating and draining. The overarching is that if the broader public is not taking the pandemic and the associated risks seriously does it risk furthering the viruses spread. I mean it's a weird situation We see it a lot playing out in the media. Obviously how bad it is. We see our local elected officials talking about it constantly imposing new restrictions and lockdowns. And that's probably fueled some of the frustration on the part of people not wanting to go through that obviously huge economic effects that are going on because of it is hard for a lot of people and despite these huge numbers. There's a lot of people that have not gotten this and maybe some people don't know somebody of the that might have gotten it so it might fuel some of that skepticism. They said you know some of this in their sort of groups have family and friends is rooted in the fact that there were parts of the country that shut down before the virus was widely circulating there. So there's this frustration from economic losses whether it be a job or just instability in a person's household by nansha situation that contribute to this frustration. I shut down.

As COVID-19 Cases Soar, El Paso Convention Center Becomes Hospital
"Everything is bigger in Texas, and that now includes the pandemic. It's the first state in the U. S to have more than one million confirmed coronavirus cases. Among other places. El Paso is in crisis intensive care units across El Paso County. We're reaching capacity more than two weeks ago, Things have grown so much worse that the city has turned its convention center into a field hospital. Remember when things were that bad in New York in the spring will cases across the U. S R lot worse now than they were then Mallory Falk of our member station. K E R A is in El Paso. Good morning to you. Good morning. As best you can tell what makes Texas different from other states. Well. Texas doesn't have tight coronavirus restrictions and place like in some other states. The governor issued a statewide executive order on Cove it and it doesn't allow individual communities to implement their own restrictions. Texas very much is a place that lets people do what they want to do. And I should also point out Texas has a high rate of residents who are uninsured or live far away from hospitals and medical care. So there are many people here who have the type of untreated underlying conditions that mean they'll get sicker if they get Cove it and that's part of the problem, too. So Texas is taking a sort of freedom first approach to the pandemic, but what is being done to try to limit the spread? Well, it is all mired in politics here, and Al Paso County, the judge who's the top elected official. Last month, he ordered a temporary shutdown of nonessential businesses. But several restaurant owners and the state attorney general sued. And on Friday, a court sided with them and blocked the order, saying cities and counties can impose tighter restrictions than what the governor allows. And I should mention geography to El Paso is right on the border with New Mexico and the governor there just implemented a two week statewide shut down something that hasn't been done here and I'll pass. So is right on the border with water is Mexico and in that city has a nightly curfew there tighter restrictions in place. Then an El Paso. And so there's this delicate balance because people are moving across various borders with different rules and restrictions. You know, I'm remembering that just a couple of weeks ago we checked in on El Paso and found the hospitals filling up a couple weeks ago. And now Allison Aubrey is telling us that things are infinitely worse than just a couple of weeks ago. What's that mean for the hospitals? Yeah, Hospitals are at capacity. There 10 Mobile morgues here that are now needed because so many people are dying so quickly that the regular Margus full and in fact, some inmates are now being paid $2 an hour to help move the overflow of bodies at the medical examiner's office Funeral home's air overwhelmed I spoke to a funeral director right to convert one of his chapels into a storage cooler. Um and nurses have been speaking out publicly pleading with people to stay at home to suspend family gatherings. For now on, they've also been pleading with state officials to let El Paso leaders respond to the crisis and implement that. Shut down. Okay, let me stop you there if I can. Mallory fuck of member Station Ktrh in El Paso, Texas, Thanks for the update. Thank you.
How Self-Driving Trucks Will Change the World with Robert Brown and Jon Panzer
"Robert say what's up to fire nation and let's explain the logistics industry to an outsider. Awesome well thanks for having me Logistics industry is incredible It's a trillion dollar industry in the us You know especially the trucking industry is saying if you bought it. A truck broaden Seventy percent of all freight is moved on trucks And then also trains and all sorts of the planes trains and automobiles in this immense amount and as everyone during covid with the increase of ecommerce and everyone expecting their stuff out hours if you order it. Rather than days An amazon really driving that through competitors senior huge announcements from walmart target an incredible amount of pressure on a already stress system You know and and getting stuff around this country is an important part of food security and you know on of course just convenience now we demand that you know our shipping rather than day shipping and Just an incredibly vital part of our economy and workforce You know just a millions and millions. America's are are employed by our transportation industry as well. It is incredible. I've actually lived down here in puerto rico for four years now so i was here during hurricane maria and it just blew me away that after hurricane maria like we still had the logistical capability to get food across this island with just like this unbelievably rural roads and mountains and all these different things but they were still able to make things happen to me. I was actually an armor officer in the army for two years and then my last two years in the army. I was a logistics officer. So i went to four uses to logistics schools. Well so i definitely have a little background in that. It's been it's been a while. Now thank you for your service though. that's cool. I appreciate that in the introduction. I shared with fire nation. Everything that you're responsible for which is a lot. Can you break down for fire. Nation your current business model so right now. We are the largest autonomous truck. Company in the entire united states with wapping forty trucks so kind of tongue-in-cheek because if anyone that knows the tracking industry that is You know it's not very much. But you know i it. Still a new industry and right now. We retrofit internationals and peterbilt trucks with our technologies with cameras and light ours and all sorts of great sensors and test the software that we're developing along with all the all the hardware as well every day Between kind of book any between phoenix arizona and dallas texas We haul cargo for folks like ups did a pile with the united states. Postal service Clean foods Arizona food bank and so we get real world testing and also what's nice about too is out there driving around trucks. you know. we're actually a purpose building. The technology with the design of what they call. Sad levels for basically for folks. that aren't familiar with this levels. Which is probably ninety. Nine point nine percent of the population that is kind of the levels think level five jetsons car can go anywhere with the robot level. Four is is really cool. It can go without a driver but it's defined route so between that. Ups facility in phoenix to the ups facility paso texas. We have the map that you can kind of think of it putting down a digital railroad and then the truck can run a thomas lee on that digital railroad where we map so it can't just on a split decision. Just take off to another location in in that kind of thing but The the technology and the business use case think repeatable routes high volume which is great for the long haul trucking industry. And that's the problem. We're trying to solve this great technology. So i'm actually one of those people who walks around saying very loudly. I cannot wait for the day. That every single moving vehicle is driverless. And whenever i come across somebody. That's like i will never get into a driver's car. I go. you are a crazy person because if you honestly believe the headlight you'll realize how horrible human beings are driving. It is so so bad. it's so so bad.

"The car scene of RO authorities in el Paso Texas are considering racial hatred as a motivating factor in yesterday's mass shooting at a Walmart twenty people died at least twenty six others wounded it's one of the many mass shootings this year we'll hear more about this morning's attack in Ohio elsewhere in the program right now and yours had a lamb is here she covers domestic extremism and she's with us to talk about what we know about the el Paso suspects possible motivations good morning good morning so tell us what do we know about this alleged gunman all details are still coming out the suspect is identified as a twenty one year old white man from Allen Texas that's a suburb of Dallas he surrendered to police at the scene without shots being fired and he's in custody as for motivation please see the initial investigation suggests a quote nexus with a hate crime that's based on a long statement a manifesto as it's being called purportedly written by the suspect and posted on eight chan it's a site that's home to lots of extremist content content that's been pushed off some of the other social media sites and the statement is filled with anti immigrant hatred white nationalists language police say they are working to verify that document as well as a number of other social media posts attributed to the suspect so at this point they are looking at hate is a motivating factor but they they do stress that there at the beginning of this will let's dig into this what is in this so called manifesto well the suspect posted a detailed statement as other mass shooters have done it so it was said to be posted shortly before the attack began and it begins by saying he basically agrees with the shooter who killed some fifty Muslims at mosques in Christchurch New Zealand earlier this year and like other recent attackers the motivations described in the el Paso statement are rooted in this idea of so called white genocide a replacement theory this is the idea that white people are being replaced in the violence is required to fight that trend and we've seen that in several other attacks and we saw that in the chance of for example Jews will not replace us in Charlottesville to unite the right rally in this case he does mention a lot of other grievances corporate greed partisan politics consumer culture even destruction of the environment there's a whole section on the kind of gun and ammunition you plan to use but the over arching theme is an anti immigration and with the suspects sees as the dangers of immigration with Hispanic people singled out he refers to quote a Hispanic invasion and he called this attack as quote an act of preservation so how does el Paso fit in with other recent attacks that appear to be motivated by far right extremism yeah we've seen a string of the shootings now mass killings targeting racial minorities religious minorities based on a suspect's self proclaimed desire to somehow save the country from being taken over by immigrants and extremism trackers talk about this is a kind of cascading affect suggesting there's an element of inspiration and copy cat one upsmanship involved because this idea of the vanishing white race is a popular trip in the white power movement and it's often mentioned in tandem with the conspiracy that there is a Jewish conspiracy to engineer the end of white people and that kind of thinking which was once on the French has become widespread enough now that federal authorities consider it part of a domestic terrorist threat and just last week ya who obtained an intelligence bulletin in which the F. B. I. says the quote anti government identity based and friends political conspiracy theories campy motivators and domestic extremism and really all of this is tragic illustration of with the F. B. I.'s said for years that far right violence is the deadliest in the most active form of home grown extremism the on the ground the authority on the ground the authorities know this they've said this many times and before members of Congress and the news media but overall the trump administration has not made this a funding our law enforcement priority and the president himself has repeatedly retweeted white nationalist accounts well speaking of president trump the shooter's manifesto also mentioned him right what is the political context that's right and I in in the document the suspects spells out that his ideas about race mixing an immigration predate trump he he appeared to be worried that the so called fake media was going to try to blame the president and he does criticize the Republican Party along with Democrats for helping facilitate immigration to the United States but extremism truck trackers I speak with CD issue is bigger than the president's rhetoric in one specific attack their concern is that the president's repeated amplifying of white nationalists on Twitter the prominent Republicans in TV personalities using the same kind of talking points suggesting the coming a ratio of white people and bemoaning that quote loss of the country to immigrants that all that serves to push a really dangerous ideology into the mainstream that's N.

"We're grateful that you're there as well with you tonight. It's Ian and mark we're going through the manifesto of the lunatic who shot up <hes> some innocent folks at a Walmart earlier today El Paso or the El Paso Texas area taking out at least nineteen human lives and <hes> injuring and other forty terrible shooting steps really horrifying of courses they they all are one of the worst apparently in in U._S.. History as far as the body count is concerned. The individual in question is still alive. He was taken alive by police. His name is Patrick crews. There is a manifesto that he allegedly has put out there and we are sharing that with you. It's actually relatively short so we want to continue with more of his <hes> what he claims are his political and economic reasons for slaughtering more than a dozen near nearly two dozen as an innocent people and we're GONNA continue with your calls and thoughts certainly welcome as well. The toll free number is eight fifty five four fifty free. That's eight five five four five zero three eighty seven three three as I say Ian and mark here. Let's continue with him. He was saying just in case. You're just tuning in. He's he's basically sounding like an arch statist sort of melted together from Republican Democrat talking points. That's what he sounds like on one hand. He is deathly afraid of immigrants and believes that they actually harm the economy. Even though the opposite is true he does seem to understand that welfare is a problem <hes> but at the same time he embraces it sounds like universal healthcare and the so-called U._B.. I the universal basic income yeah so he's embracing some major kind of status concepts. He's anti-corporate. This is what I consider to be. The fundamental flaw in modern progressivism is is that we've drawn a polygon on the map inside that Polygon we will institute socialism because if you attempt to institute outside you know like just Athleti come into the polygon. The socialism's GonNa fail because a bunch of people who don't WanNa work are GONNA come here. Which of course undermines the whole philosophy that hey everybody's he's going to work? Everybody's GonNa work till worry about it so I just it yeah this guy's status. He is a total status. He says he believes that the you be. I would be more likely to succeed if tens of millions of dependence are removed so he's actually advocating for deporting people. He wants to send people out of the United States. He goes on to say even though new migrants do the dirty work their kids typically don't he claims they WANNA live the American dream which is why they get college degrees and fill higher paying skilled positions. This is why now it's the problem that the children of immigrants are getting college degrees and get take taking are better jobs right okay well. I mean I have not heard this before. Okay protectionist is going to be a protectionist all the way up the line I mean they're not just going to want to protect the construction workers in the you know the the folks pick and fruit. My Grandmother was the child of an immigrant Yup and you're her grandson. Just how far down the line does this go. I mean exactly before long. What does he wanted to port? I guess right right how many generations back he says this is why corporations lobby for even more immigration after says illegal immigration eve after decades decades of it happening. He claims I do think that corporations lobby for an and make it make more illegal immigration possible because illegal immigration actually allows does the big Agra to institute of sort of Serfdom modern-day serfdom over these these migrant workers..
