Vaccines Are Coming, but Pandemic Experts Expect a 'Horrible' Winter
"With the race to develop and distribute a safe and effective Corona virus vaccine well underway. Advisers to the Centers for Disease Control is said to me today deciding who will get the vaccine first. Here's NBC's George Stephanopoulos joined now by Dr Tom Frieden, the former CDC director who is now president and CEO of Resolve to save lives. Dr. Frieden, thank you for joining us. Take us inside this prioritization process deciding who's going to get the vaccine. And when you've got about 20 million doses, But you have 87 million essential workers. 53 million over the age of 65 millions more with chronic conditions. How do you decide? Fundamentally, You wanna look at three things, George, One is how much good you going to do? How many lives you're gonna save second is what's fair. What's the fair way to do it? And the third is How can we do this openly? Transparently so that there's no back room deals. It's clear what's happening and the A C. I P. That committee That's meeting today is the right group to do that. They are the top experts in the country on vaccines, and they consider all those factors in terms of maximum benefit. You want to really focus on nursing homes? Because that's where 40% of the deaths have been in terms of fairness. You want to make sure that doctors get it because the nurses and all health care workers, not just The people who you may see stories about people cleaning the floors that people checking people in the people who are exposed and heart at risk, not just of getting it, but of spreading it. So those three principles are what guide and this kind of public discussion and decision is really healthy way that have this prioritization done. You're right. Transparency is important. Of course, the vaccine still needs to be approved. We're hoping for it to happen within days. Can anything slow that down? We do expect approval to come pretty soon, but I would also expect there to be bumps in the road in the vaccination program. When you vaccinate millions of people. Some people get really sick after the vaccination, and you don't know whether that was the vaccine, or that was just coincidence. So that has to be studied carefully or you're going to get all sorts of wild rumors flying around. That's another place where you really need transparency. This is how many cases of severe adverse effects we may have, or may expect. Is it higher? Is it related there? Maybe production problems. There may be rumors. There may be people who don't want to take it even if you do have the vaccine, So this is probably George the single most complicated vaccination program. In American history, even though it's happened, so expect that they're going to be some bumps in the road. No question about that. As we wait for the vaccine. It certainly appears that all signs are too are pointing toward a dark winter before relief in the spring. Even though the vaccine news is very encouraging. It's not here yet, and therefore we have to double down on safety protocols or we're going to see the worst season we've had for covert. We've already as you show reaching 100,000 hospitalizations in the next week or so we'll hit 2000 deaths per day on average in the next few weeks, Sadly, We can all do more and more we recognize we're in it together. The safer will be the more we can continue our kids in school. Our healthcare has to continue to save people's lives. But that means dialing back on things like indoor gatherings. Bars and restaurants and making sure we all mask off along with ABC is George Stephanopoulos says former Centers for Disease Control director Dr Tom

What to do about black spots on my Dracaena?
"Collins. Says i have a. That's about a year old. It sits in a south facing window. I've started to notice clusters of black spots on the leaves. They don't rub off so. I don't think it's mildew i only wanted to plant when it's dry and the pot appears to be well drained. Do you have any ideas. Well i have an idea now. And that's all it is at this point not being able to see the leaves and him checking to to see if there's a fungus on them there still could be a fumble type of disease in those leaves. It could be that it is simply getting too much sun Amplified by the glass as a matter of fact in that south window You might try and moving to a spot where it would still get light from that south window but not not the plant would be to the side of the light pattern. That would be one of the things you're seeing is usually Except for us. He said he waters only when it's necessary and and that is the best way to handle those I know they can be killed quickly by over watering pot that doesn't have a drain or simply watering too often. And so on South window seems to be one of the things to be careful. And as i'm speaking of that. I'm thinking about where i have seen her sina and I'm i'm thinking of a couple of situations where they the plant had never been turned and they. I don't know how they were but they had literally leaned toward the window. And we're leaning against it and i think in this case it was an east window so it'll be just morning sun but it was the craziest looking and it had literally taken a nosedive over onto the window now beyond that then If he is where he could get the plant checked out. Take a leaf for two to a garden center where there are experienced people there and have them check to see. If it looks like it is indeed a fumble body and that wouldn't wipe off in many times leaf. We'll have fungal parts between the upper and lower layer and so on but i i have a hunch that it might be the direct south exposure. So maybe stay in that same room but just move out of the direct sun pattern. I that's about the only thing. I know telecom. 'cause sounds like he's doing everything else right and they're a plant can can age gently So i'd say give it a try.
Moderna to seek FDA emergency authorization for COVID-19 vaccine
"We're hurtling toward. What may well be a horrible and deadly holiday season as cova cases numbers and hospitalizations. Continue to reach alarming highs over ninety thousand. People are currently hospitalized in the us according to the cova tracking project that's compared to the previous high of about sixty thousand in the spring and summer. So more by half just terrifying. We're also moving quickly towards something that looks like hope to vaccines yesterday. Dern submitted its vaccine for fda authorization aaron. What's the latest on that. Well akilah thanks to the incredible work of scientists and researchers. We've now got to vaccines that. Could start to be distributed to americans within days or weeks maderna's mentioned and pfizer which submitted a couple of weeks ago. As soon as the fda reviews and approves either one for emergency use people can start lining up to get poked. Yeah i am also in line to get poked but as you've been talking about on the show with this first round vaccines were not going to have enough for everybody all at once and we don't have one official plan for who gets to be at the front of the line. That's why the cdc's advisory committee on immunization practices or ac ip is having an emergency meeting today hammer out some guidelines for states on who gets there. Kobe shot i. Yeah so what do we know about their thinking. Well much to the chagrin of the kardashians in everybody who would love to feel just a little more normal by having a massless dance party on a private island. The vaccine will not be distributed based on how many instagram followers. You have or even whether your father invented the toaster strudel I'm really bummed. I that's my dad. I know. I know grudging wieners. The has already decided that the first people in line should be healthcare workers and people who live in long term care facilities like nursing homes according to dr kathleen dueling medical officer at the cdc staff and residents at these facilities have accounted for almost forty percent of all deaths from covid nineteen even though there are less than one percent of the total us population if you add healthcare workers and people who live and work at long term care facilities. That's about twenty four million people even with fda approval and firing on all cylinders. There will only be about forty million vaccine doses available by the end of this godforsaken year and both cohen. Vaccines require two shots. Which means that those forty million doses will be barely enough to meet the needs of the very neediest in this group. Yeah and then. It starts to get a little bit trickier when you get into the other. Essential workers and people with high risk medical conditions. Or you know older people right. So according to the cdc there about eighty seven million essential workers one hundred million high risk adults and fifty three million people sixty five years of age or older. And of course there's some overlap between these categories. These are the people that would be prioritized next but as you can see there are a lot of them if all goes well you could see fifty million more doses ready to go in january another sixty million in february or march doing math divided by to carry the one that means about seventy five million people could be vaccinated against covid nineteen by the end of the first quarter of twenty twenty one which means the more people who are at an elevated risk from covid. Then there will be vaccines and there will not be enough vaccines to reach herd immunity at first and it's going to be a while before we get there and so this is just guidance. According to current lame duck secretary of health and human services. Alex as our love connick guy. Lame duck state governments will ultimately determine how the vaccine will be distributed. But who knows if that assertion will hold after biden takes office on january twentieth knows. Well it's a little bit of an elephant in the room. Here you know. America has a long history of ignoring the needs of and in some cases actively hurting the health of marginalized groups like indigenous americans living on reservations. Black people hello Non native english speakers people experiencing homelessness and the mentally ill among other groups. So how can we be sure that the cova vaccine will just pass them over. That's a really important question akilah. I'm sure there are already rich and powerful people trying to figure out how to skip the line. There's nothing more american than that but the acp seems determined to make sure americans have faith in the fairness of this process. All of their meetings are live streamed. So if you're looking for something to do today you can go ahead and livestream. The meeting in all the votes are public. The fda has also having meetings on vaccines on december tenth and seventeenth. This whole process depends on the public trusting the vaccine enough to let somebody shoot two doses of it into their arms and it seems like so far at least the folks in charge are taking that responsibility seriously and all this is happening with derna advisor will still be gathering more data and monitoring for adverse effects as the first groups of people get vaccinated and then the companies will have to go through the normal. Fda approval process as well. This first round of approval is a fast track process. So getting back to normal isn't site kind of if you squint. It's not that far. It's right there it's kind of kind of. Let's put it this way between now and when everybody who needs to be vaccinated is vaccinated. You'll definitely have time to relearn that foreign language tried to learn in high school and if mostly forgotten about by now
The people behind tonight's 60 Minutes
"Listen to what. Chris griggs said on sixty minutes last night. There's no foreign power that is flipping votes. There's no domestic actor flipping votes. I'd better right. We did it right. This was a secure election tonight. Joe digenova who used to be in the nineteen ninety a reasonably respected washington lawyer has collapsed into the point of an i mean mentally collapsed to the point where he said tonight that chris krebs who we just saw. There should be taken out at dawn and shot Now that's the kind of thing that's going to get you disbarred. Possibly in washington dc. And who knows what's gonna be left to rig juliani law license when this is over obviously calling for someone to be shot calling for violence on someone is reprehensible and the idea is that this is part of this. This is what happens when conspiracy theories get out of hand and where you have someone like the president who is has a big bully pulpit a big powerful voice as being president of the united states amplifying and spreading conspiracy theories you have people in lockstep with the president saying crazy things now of course the president is not said that christopher crabs could be shot. That's clear at least for now but what we do know. Is that the people around president. They've all been saying things they're just simply don't make sense. I mean you think about really guiliani and saying that there are dead people voting. You think about Sidney powell saying that there's some sort of venezuelan conspiracy theory and that the venezuelans are behind. Why why the government didn't wasn't able to to have an election with integrity. All of these things are false. This idea that you're calling for christopher comes to be shot is really scary but it just the tip the iceberg so many people who find themselves on the other side of president trump we we all in some ways understand that there is there violent intent behind this you think the fact that these election workers that are just simply counting the votes simply doing their jobs. They are getting death threats. They're having to hire security to to protect themselves. These scary times. And i think that the president Some of this the bucks in some ways talks with the president and his own language but of course that person saying that christopher crevice should be shot that's of course going even farther than president. Trump has gone so we'll have to just watch that space to see what actually happens in that case a on when we look at The trump sorry the biden white house staff announcement today. A jen psaki for example as white house press secretary. That just a typifies. What we're seeing in all of these choices. Joe biden's basically going to people who have already proved they can do these jobs. And many of whom have done a version of these jobs in the past and some in the campaign. And when you imagine a jen. Psaki ron white house. Press briefing room starting january twenty first That is a return to normal. That would have been forgotten If the trump presidency had continued essentially valid point in in some respects. The hiring of jen psaki and the other people on that. Communications team is so unremarkable. Because these are just sorta standard. I'll be very accomplished. In extremely capable professionals in dc on the other hand the point of we have is this current administration which has turned the briefing room into essentially a a chance to spread donald trump propaganda. That is not tethered to reality And so what we have to do. We have to adjust our expectations. I don't want to like lower. The bar too much for gen. No she can clear it but you know we need to have a return of normalcy of backs of information a big In the briefing room. Because that's not just a chance for the president to get his word out. It's a chance for the american public to understand what the machinations of government are doing and what they're taxpayer-funded representatives are doing. And i hope that you know jen appreciates that mission reinstates it and like you said it shouldn't be a remarkable higher but there is a huge task ahead of her not just in advancing clients interest in this case the president but in restoring very either of trust that i think is instrumental to the functioning democracy quickly. Before you go you'll be in that white house. Press briefing room with jen psaki. What do you anticipate Starting january twenty first in that room for why anticipate actual briefings which we have not seen regularly with the trump administration. I expect someone who's gonna come to the pulpit and the accurate and be fair Obviously offering defenses of president-elect fighting then president biden and we're going to of course have tense exchanges. Reporters are always going to be pushing wanting more information. But i think there's going be a level of respect that has not been there in the last four years both with her treating reporters in screaming at them. Criticizing them in the way that we've seen with the trump administration you michelle cinder and sam stein. Thank you very much restoring off our discussion really appreciate it. thank you both.

First 'mass air shipment' of Pfizer's Covid vaccine arrives as airlines prepare for more
"This week. We're taking a special look at the race for a vaccine across all of nbc news. Tonight we focus on the enormous challenge of distributing the moderna and vaccines once approved both here and in europe. Here's joe during this challenge moving millions of doses of its vaccine the cargo carriers to every corner of the country for use the minute. The fda gives the go-ahead that could come within two weeks maderna's vaccine can be kept in a normal freezer while pfizer's requires arctic. Coal already pfizer is using united airlines cargo. Flights packed with dry ice to pre-position millions of its vaccine doses while awaiting fda approval part of a massive distribution network now a worldwide american airlines also using empty passenger planes to rush supplies around the globe inside the seventy seven no passengers and no suitcase. It's all cargo. Making room for more medical supplies vaccines therapeutics. And p p pharmaceuticals that require. Cooling are shipped in mobile freezers. Their temperatures constantly monitored if the temperature drops by even a quarter of a degree the alarm goes off in. Our team is able to investigate. What's going on and make sure that. The shipments ready for the rest of its journey. Cdc advisory committee will meet tomorrow to decide who gets vaccinated. I arkansas health director. Dr jose romero is on that committee. What is your biggest challenge in arkansas. I think our biggest challenge is going to be reaching those urban Constituents at need the vaccine rural health care centers rural hospitals while the military will rush vaccine's to every state and territory. Each health department must get it to the most remote corners of the country both moderna and require two shots. One concern keeping the pfizer vaccine. Cold enough it may not be able to get it out to some remote clinics and smaller hospitals. That just don't have the capacity to store it in the appropriate fashion with lives on the line. One of the biggest civilian cargo airlifts in history. Is now ramping up
Microsoft envisions 'scoring' meetings based on body language
"Microsoft has applied for a patent called meeting insight computing system. That would use a system of cameras and sensors to record data in conference rooms. Things like body language facial expressions. The amount of time participants contribute to a meeting your speech pattern quote consistent with boredom and fatigue. They'll tell of your board. Then they'll add that to whether attendants were texting or browsing the internet and that will combine with factors like was the meeting. Efficient was the room temperature. Really hot and uncomfortable and overall quality score will be created for those meetings. The system could eventually predict the likelihood of holding a high-quality meeting based on time of day who's involved etc and flag potential challenges ahead of time. Maybe suggesting alternative time or a different venue a or maybe different people different length of time. I don't know the system could be used for in person. Virtual or hybrid meetings microsoft has been working on the system since two thousand eighteen and told the bbc. The application of patent does not necessarily indicate that the technology described will be implemented in a product. This is especially interesting because microsoft is taking a bunch of heat over a productivity score that it includes in microsoft three sixty five now. This is a different thing. This is the thing. That's actually in microsoft. Three sixty five. It's not a patent. it's an opt. In feature that aggregates information. About email us network connectivity et cetera. Similar but not the same thing and security and privacy advocates this week were pointing out that one of the default settings let managers check data on individual employees which would let them see who sent the least emails who collaborated the least documents other individualized metrics organizations choose who can see that individual data with an option to anonymous. Remove it entirely but they don't have that option. User data is aggregated over a twenty. Eight day period microsoft. Rich say like well. The point of the productivity score was not to spy on people but we. I guess leave that up to the companies because they might want to bear on for a benign reason look at individual scores and compare them.

Black Friday 2020 Sales Reports
"In store sales on black friday where fifty two percent lower than a year ago. That should not surprise anyone online. Sales were up big also not surprise. This actually did surprise me a little bit. Though jason online sales on friday in the united states made it the second biggest day ever for online sales cyber monday last year is the biggest all time black friday this year second-placed that might get bumped down to third place after this year cyber monday. But what did you think of the reports of black friday. Yeah i mean. I think you hit on something there in to today cyber monday. I think you're right. No surprise almond spending on black. Friday grew twenty one point six percent. That was a new record. It was around nine billion dollars worth of purchases that were recorded in the forecast for today for cyber monday this year. It's slated it's it's it's slated to become the largest digital sales day ever spending is forecast to reach somewhere between ten point. Eight billion in twelve point seven billion dollars that would represent growth of fifteen to thirty five percent from last year. You no surprise really there. I think to me what really stood out and again not surprising but still stood out. Because it's just pretty darn impressive was shop by shop by his stock obviously a lot of our listeners. A lot of our members and subscribers are all very familiar with in. It's been a good year for shoplifting. Is stock up around one hundred and seventy five percent. The numbers that day chalked up for black friday really impressive two point. Four billion dollars in black friday sales that was about seventy five percent growth from last year so clearly the investments. They've been making in business all along the way or paying off. And i think the thing the thing there is because we can sit there and criticize shop five for example oh it's overvalued or you know it doesn't make a lot of sense because the business doesn't make that much money yet that that may be true but these are the type of these types of numbers that will i think afford some time i think as long as they continue to record these types of numbers the market is going to continue giving it Some wiggle room there. We've seen it with amazon. We've seen it certainly with wayfair. I think i don't think it'll be different but there were some interesting numbers. There within shop of is report that i think are just worth noting average black friday cart price. Globally was just under ninety one dollars. That was up eleven percent from a year ago so people spent a little bit more in need thing here in this mobile world. We always talk about how mobile is really leading. Four mobile sales on black friday this year. If you look at the breakdown between mobile sales and desktop it was sixty seven percent mobile versus thirty three percent desktop in last year that was sixty nine percent mobile and thirty one percent desktop so the differences is marginal but it seems worse shopping on desktop this year for obvious reasons and so the data i think but yeah it all goes back towards this digital economy that we're witnessing in it. It's it's seems like it has a lot of traction. I don't know that we're necessarily going to be going back anytime soon. I'm glad you mentioned shop five because we have talked a lot about the big retailers like walmart and target in particular the investments that they have made this year for curbside pickup for delivery all of that but worth as you said pointing out the investments shop by his made and this is a stock that i do not own i. I understand both sides of it. It is definitely on my watch. List having pulled the trigger yet. But but i understand the concerns. I understand the around valuation the lack of profitability. And maybe that's why we've seen the rise that we've seen for target and walmart this year because those are just fundamentally. I think a little easier for people to wrap their heads around. But as you said. I mean what what is the future going to be. Is it going. is it going to be well. Wants to all this is behind us. We're just to start going back to the mall now. I don't think so it's going to be more online shopping and to your point more mobile shopping. I think you are. I think you're right there. I just continued to be impressed with wayfair for example the mobile mobile numbers that they continue to record are really impressive. And that's that's furniture. Man i mean like people are shopping for furniture on their phones in regard to shop applied. I think when you when you look at the future. I don't think it's going to be one or the other. I think we've talked about this before really when we talk about target and walmart i mean it really is becoming about omni channel right. It's just meeting. The consumer wherever the consumer wants to be met in the more that companies the more that retailers are able to do this They're going to be able to take advantage of the digital economy. They're going to be able to take advantage of people wanting to actually physically go to stores In so i. I think the future is going to be a little bit of both but certainly shop. A fi is keying in on their specialty. In and i think more growth is going to be coming in. Obviously bad digital space shop is is absolutely one of the companies dictating the development of that space so even even next year. When i think it's probably safe to assume that that we get a little bit more back to normal in and the the the in person shopping experiences a little bit less risky. We'll see people wanting to get out. We'll see people wanting to go to stores and have fun with that experience But but that that. I don't think it's going to really Deter people from shopping online. I mean hopefully. I think ultimately what i'd love to see just this whole black friday cyber monday thing. I really like the fact that we're stretching and just this whole month so it's not really about fewer sales. It's just about timing right. We're just stretching over the course of a month as opposed to really isolating on on individual days. I liked to see that. Continue to wear these concepts. These retailers are not just leveraged to a couple of particular days toward the end of the year. Just real quick before we move onto our next story on that point. Are you seeing this in your own personal life. Because i have in. The last week noticed that the promotional emails i get from different retailers are basically saying. Hey our black. Friday sale is gonna last for the next ten days. It's like the subject line in the email is black friday sale. And then you look. It's like oh this is actually going through december ninth. Yeah i feel like. I've seen a lot of that just anecdotally. I do feel like. I've seen a lot more of that. I think that's that's the right thing to do again. It's just it's a bit of a different time but hopefully as we've seen throughout this whole year this year has been an accelerator for change and a lot of good ways. And maybe this'll be one more thing one more change that will witness over the course of the coming years in the i think ultimately they'll be a
Interview With Bennie F. Johnson
"All right so tell us who you are and what you do all right. My name is beneath johnson. And i'm the new executive director of a professional organization for design. And i know you've been in the role now for for several months. It was announced earlier this year. But congratulations to you. Thank you thank you. It still feels new. It feels a bit surreal. We started in january with the announcement that was my first day in the office. And you know before we know it. We're here under quarantine. And i'm back here in dc so it. It still feels new but a lot of work and a has happened since we started. So where were you when you first got the news that you got the role you know. It's funny i was in the car in. Dc about have lunch with a dear friend. And i received a phone call it said. Are you available to talk in a couple of minutes. So it's always like that pre call to a call. And then i received the word that i was selected to be the next executive director. Now our audience of course has heard of aig. A if anyone. I think has been listening to vision. Path that links at least since twenty fourteen or two thousand fifteen. They know about aig but for those who don't know who might be new to this conversation might be new to you and organization. Can you just talk about what. Aig a is and also what specifically attracted you to this role. What is is a legacy organization in many ways. It's a hundred year plus professional association. And there aren't that many hundred year organizations you can imagine but. Ai has been at the center of design design community design education profession for larger than assists century. And so what attracted me to spent the last ten years working with professional organizations and helping them reinvent reimagined and position themselves for a contemporary world. And so the opportunity to come into space. I'd always been designed always been central part of my experience professionally personally. So they have the opportunity to take the experience that i had working with other professional associations and apply to design professional organization was a really big draw for me. My background is really been coming into organizations to try to help pivot in move from what has been to build a better future of what can be so. I saw an opportunity. Here with edgy. A. and space to help the organization expand along with the design professional expanding right. You can't have the profession expand the professional organization stay the same. So what does an average day look like for you. You said earlier you were in new york. Now you're back in. Dc what does it look like running this organization like this remotely. The first couple of weeks. The average day was starting off monday mornings hopping on the train. Amtrak in heading from dc union station to tribeca new york and spending the bulk of the week. They're meeting a connecting with design leaders and professionals on students having meetings and getting acclimated to the organization. So that was about two months of that kind of back and forth. After we went into fool states that you can imagine of and we all have kind of lived through our pandemic this became. How do we think about the organization in physically from running from my living room. Dining room the favourite corner in my house right in and it quickly became. It wasn't a question of where. I was physically but using the tools and the opportunity to bring together our team to deliver and build for our profession. You know how do we deliver our mission. Yes we're used to being in office spaces in traveling. But what can we do more dynamic way. What's really nice about edgy. A is we were already positioning ourselves to be more virtual part of even my being able to come in at the role i lived in. Dc and so having ceo who is not based in the office was deliberate point for the organization as we stands right now only about sixty to sixty five percent of my team is located in new york the rest of the distributed across the country. And i think that's an incredible opportunity in advantage for us. And i think there's probably important to note here because when people think of aig a they think of the chapters. Each of those chapters has their own kind of bored and everything. Those are not employees of lateral organization. Itself is pretty small right. Those are nine employees so we are what you know. Many people haven't had experience with but we are federated model and it's very common in professional associations and spaces we all exist under a core mission in brand right that his asia but we're network community so we have seventy five chapters who are individual chapters. They have their own. Bores volunteer leaders were connected with them but they're connected through affiliation and grew an overall network to larger aig a mission brand. We also have two hundred student chapters across colleges and universities so the power of a federated model is just that you have this connection to community at a really directing granular level. But you're tied together in the national office in which i lead gets to serve as really kind of the infrastructure and the backbone organization that at its heart in all of the chapters and the student groups and are forced to be to do that work that they get
The Upside of the condo downshifting
"I want you to do something a little different today. I want you to think of your real estate journey like a game of monopoly. I literally want you to go to your monopoly game or any game. That's gotta dice in it and grab the dice just one. You only need one obviously with every dice. They're six sides to that dice. So what i'm telling people to do in some of them are some of them. Think that have already had some breakfast. Beer which i did not have today That's only for special occasions and closing days Breakfast wine or breakfast champagne. Only certain days not everyday otherwise. It's just not special. So what i want you to do is grab a dice of any kind. Roll it against the wall or on the floor and see what number you get. What happens then is if it says four. Then we're going to start looking at places that are within four hours of toronto or wherever you are right now. I'm talking to a lot of people in toronto and gpa. And then we're able to do something called the drive til you qualify program which is going to be a game changer. For a lot of you. Those of you. That i'm speaking to right now especially this week. I've been talking to a lot of people with condos in the downtown core and some of them are experienced a bit of a down shoplift so there actually is some condos that are not doing as well as others. Now what you have to do what you have to look at is not the disadvantage of the downshift. You have to look at the advantage. I actually want you to think of it as the upside of downshift. And that's why i called at that. This is the upside of down shift in the condo market rule number. One as i've said before. Is you make money when you buy. So what you need the focus on and and it doesn't mean you're going to buy i. You're going to make sure that you sell. I can get what you need out of your property. Hopefully that will let you know what you can do next. But if you're looking at a property where if you're looking at the potential where you can sell your condo for five six seven hundred and you're able to buy a house for about that much that could easily improve your quality of life Reduce your condo fees Give you more room to roam give you some greenspace build up and build a workout studio or a garage With your dream. Jim all that kind of stuff that i'm helping people do right now. I want to do that for you over the years. That's been the side benefit for me is actually and this is something i really do. This is not an exaggeration. I used to work in the fitness industry for a decade. So i took apart treadmills. I put together workout machines. So i've actually designed people home gyms and i still do that. It's a really fun thing. I like to do And customize it to each person's knees not everybody wants to body build so for some people it might just be peleton bikes for some people may just be a regular bike set-up workout bench could be as simple as that some people in each in a bar. Some people don't Totally off to the side. But that's just part of this sort of the dice. Approach that i have so. If you're in a position where you can make a move meaning that you can just work from anywhere and you've kind of now. It's kind of been established where you'll be able to do their Or possibly you could just work from go into another office Like your company has an office. You know a couple of hours away That might be a really great idea in the six and the number six. Obviously what that does is that takes you right to off. And i've had a bunch a record number in my in my case. I'm record number of people moving to ottawa with me this year. I i've got some amazing people out there. That are ready to help you. But i'm i'm eating moving people further out so obviously i will say between one to six and obviously it's up to you where you end up moving but the further out you go within about two or three hours if you if you start looking at those prices compared to what you're going to be You know paying for something in the city you'll be blown away. You'll see these incredible houses in places like coburg for four hundred thousand dollars and again you'll be blown away by what you can get and this is all Again one shopping with me. That's the best part. I'll connect you to the right people that are out there. Do not make the mistake of connecting with someone out there before you've screened. This has been a nightmare for me over. The years is trying to undo that bullshit. Don't be that person. Don't connect with anybody outside the city until you know who you're dealing with and you've actually have some Some some way of knowing their patterns. Okay because words don't mean anything you go on a screen you type in someone's Where they were blah blah blah kingston ottawa. Whatever words don't mean anything actions even if they said oh yes i. I sell twenty places A day you'll see those ads also don't believe that it's patterns. It's the way people respond when they're put to the test especially this year. So you want someone on the other end who's account and that is a huge thing and when they're working under me meaning i actually refer them to you and i do get paid for this but you don't pay me. This is this comes from them. So they're actually accountable to both you and make and if they don't make me happy as well as you they don't get another referral alcott that referral lineup. And i have many times with in a heartbeat

I'm actually out of stories and then you're like just kidding. I could keep doing this so anymore. So many more yeah. What kind of response did you get. A lot of people were like. Oh my god we had no idea it was like that and now we're looking at things in a different way. You know because. I do feel like until these protests. I think people thought that the cops were always right you know. I think it was a lot of that. Like i can remember grown men and women that i know being like well yeah. The community says that the cops were crazy but the cop said that it was the person who was in. Fact nuts bro. You know grown grown adults. And i thought oh well okay. They just have no reason to stretch their minds to make room for. You know the fact that a whole community can't be wrong. Everyone everyone in the community is a crazy person. All right Yeah no you're absolutely right so we have the two of you here your good friends. You work together. You're used to hanging out. How often have you been talking to each other over the last few months not enough. I know genuine. I used to get breakfast together every morning at work from the second i would walk into work.

We do our work and then we would go get lunch and then when we come back we do our work and then at night it'd be like texting each other.

It's interesting that is a cat cats. No yeah that's from. Youtube channel called animals are awesome. So this cat is probably making the chattering sound because it's seen a bird or some other prey. Scientists don't know exactly why cats make that sound. Let me because he wants to eat that sentence. Scientists don't know why casts for sure. They are disgusting enact every single one of them is just biding their time till their owner turns their back so they
A Planned Uptick in Defense Spending in the UK
"Here to talk about european defence topics because there are many that have emerged over the past few weeks from the united kingdom announcing that it's going to spend big on defense to the revival of the german eurofighter typhoon and developments on the swiss fighter competition. There's certainly a lot to talk about. So tony i wanted to turn to you first. And in addition to that we have a lot of details to share about aviation weeks military forecast and the opportunities that that presents for companies. Where but i. I'm gonna turn to tony to talk a little bit about what's been going on in the. Uk can bring up to speed on where london is on its spending commitments function. Yeah i mean we been quite interesting week. So last week We sort of learned that this very lodge integrates review. Probably what reporting this year and this was going to be sort of an all encompassing big review Biggest one since the cold which would look at the. Uk's defense posture decisions on offense equipment and so on and basically equip the uk for future wolf Future what we did get instead. Now the review is going to come in february. And i'll come back to that in a sec. What we do get instead was essentially a sixteen billion pound or twenty. Four billion pounds boost to defenses causes now sixteen if you listen to the government's consent to party's manifesto or it's twenty million pounds overall over four years so it's a significant boost and the largest ones called call. What was very interesting with that. There was only a few mentions of. How would inference airspace. The uk will get a space command. Sort of link probably onto the force. Because that's the lead on their in space Operations here in the uk and also probably some more money for the ten pace but it was quite vacant that it was very detail on this. And that's partly because of this lack of strategy that still yet to come out so we're gonna get this extra you know pubic pounds. But we have no idea how it's really going to be spent and there's a federal criticism about that cycle. Tony also. Where's the money going to come from with with brexit on the horizon what what does the. Uk's financial situation. How is it going to be able to afford to boost the budget in that way. This is the big elephant in the room. I mean we're heading. Towards at the moment no deal brexit the most ruinous brexit the one that say basically sends businesses and unemployment into the heavens than we're already in a pandemic and then the government's about to really really took the uk off the edge by not getting a deal. We we wait and see if we're gonna get one so yeah. Where is this money can to come from So the talks. All know spending increases with civil servants next year got sunny poppy onset. Because they'll see there's a huge amount of money that has been spent on the pandemic and then there's also talk of reducing international aid budget for example. But there's no clear defined on how this is going to be paid to too. Many of us are expecting a big liking defense. we folded. we'd probably end up being the only country in europe to start cutting fence oversee sex. She'd been wasn't done a very good job in persuade. Prime minister that you know we do really need to be investing. There are still black holes to fill and alleged to be. It's ten to thirteen billion black holding our equipment. Spend where that money would come from. Yeah i'm pretty going to be paying more tax and goodness knows after brexit houses work. It's i think it's going to be a very difficult first. Few months or maybe years post pandemic and post brexit before. How how this is gonna work out. What he's player that haven't gone away. Regards will happens off the breakfast or what happens to the pandemic needed to be done. How we pay for it big question. Big elephant in the room
State Of The Market With James Prendamano
"Everyone to episode twenty two. This is a special thanksgiving episode. Here of the sandra properties. Podcast gonna do things a little bit different. Today we're going to run solo a wanted to give a little bit of a recap of where the market's holding and talk about where i think the market is headed in the next year or two or three quite honestly. Because i think there's a lot of things at play here that not everybody is talking about so we thought it'd be a good idea if we could give a snapshot of where we're holding and then talk a little bit more about Some of those factors that. Perhaps you're not getting this analysis anywhere else for the folks out there on the island in the new york city. Pay close attention to what we're about to say here because we think it is going to be value so here we go the the market as we had suspected back in maybe two months ago three months ago we had sandy krugman ron and we had talked about was this recovery gonna look like From a real estate perspective on staten island. The mls system during corona continued to keep the clock. Ticking and what i mean by that is when we went on lockdown. They didn't pause the clock so days on market continued to tick off days. That's something pending continues to tick and it really through the stats way out of whack. So we had talked about back then that we figured once we got to november december of this year. We have a better sense of what really was happening. Because there was a a backload of deals that were moving toward a closing and then literally got frozen in time. One day and that backload sat for several months as we move through the lockdown. So when the lockdown open back up We had deals that we were able to move into contract through digital means which was a pretty neat thing for us to do and those deals were closing with the backloaded deals so it didn't give an accurate reflection of where things are and certainly didn't give an accurate reflection of where we thought things were headed. So let's start with a couple of metrics that we always keep an eye on and we'll we'll walk them through. I'm going to do a comparison of two thousand nineteen For october and two thousand twenty four october. So this takes us right up until a couple of weeks ago. So the average list price in two thousand and nine thousand nine hundred for a home on staten island was seven hundred. Four thousand six hundred and three dollars for october of two thousand twenty. We were up to seven thirty to four fifty two. The median list price october. Two thousand nineteen was six hundred. Twenty four thousand. The median price for twenty twenty an october with six hundred. Thirty eight thousand. That's a two point two increase the average sale price. And this is where it really starts to matter right. Five ninety eight forty one back in october of two thousand nineteen six zero five five seven three october. Two thousand twenty rupp about one of the quarter percent and then. The median sale price was five fifty five hundred in october of two thousand nineteen five seventy five in october of twenty twenty. So we're seeing what we had suspected which was staten island was going to emerge as a very viable option for folks that we're looking for a little bit more elbow room as they were relocating out of some of the other boroughs and those numbers are holding tight. And i think that there's Still a lot of room for appreciation on the residential side. I believe that we are going to continue to see. Staten island. emerge as a safer or a just a different kind of alternative again for folks that are looking to stay in new york But are looking for just a little bit more space our housing stock. Your staten island is very different than the other boroughs and many many many ways and for a very long time staten island has been known. As you know the forgotten borough and there's a lot of other things that Or tags that have been hung on the borough unfairly Quite honestly that are starting to shut off in. We think that there's some really really unique opportunities here as we move forward into the next couple of years so on the commercial side for the most part on the brokerage side kind of frozen time. Which again when you you stack it up against the other boroughs You know we'll sign on for that any day. We're seeing significant decreases in The commercial stock multifamily retail offices in the other boroughs and in staten island. We haven't seen that now. The velocity is not where we wanted to be right. Product is not moving nearly as fast as we'd like it to move. But i believe that that's much more a function of the banking industry as it is less a function of the actual markets. If we don't have access to the capital and banks are not geared up to lend for that type of product right. Now you're going to see that present itself in the commercial stats so as we hopefully move to a more flexible place with the commercial lending you'll see some of those stats change another opportunity here and another reason why we'll see some positive stats on the commercial side as we move into the first and second quarter of next year. Now let me qualify. That when i say positive stats mean positive. Stats in comparison to the other boroughs. Right certainly Nobody is is setting
Sea Hunt - It's Still Alive - Synthetic Hero
"It's time for another installment of seon. It's still alive and this time we're going back to season.

One handed doubles. Wow there he meets the survivors. Jack clayton in tom. Worry along with jack's wife. Susan is it me or there are a lot of suzy's and susan's on john. Jack wants to dive with. Mike and tom will be on. Deck for support might convince the dredging operators to give him forty eight hours on the rack and try to find out what happened to l. s. t. four to seven as the scene shifts. We see jack getting into his gear. Mike i'm not so sure jack knows what he's doing. Jack says he's just a little rusty so the giants dryden and make their way to direct can split up. Mike little confused because jack doesn't seem to be all that incompetent in the water. Well they don't find anything and get back on the vote jackson's really agitated. They only have one more day to solve the mystery as the sun comes up the next day and they're back on the water. Mike is getting all geared up and ready to go. Clayton is fiddling around. Mike frustrated at the delay when suddenly clayton drops tanks over the side. And you see it's sinking to the bottom. Mike has no choice but to retrieve it and hoping that this is last delay and that the tank isn't a jinx on jack's back so now the two of them are back. Underwater jet goes to the bow area. And mike heads. Aft inside the engine room. And he finds a blast hole below the waterline as he exits the space with this newfound knowledge. Suddenly a nightmare of junk is falling on top of him. It could only have been shoved on top of him by one person jack. Clayton isn't a clumsy amateur. Mike frees himself and chases. After jack jack pulls knife and they get into a fight might prevails and takes jack back to the surface with a hammerlock back on the boat. We find out that. Jack wasn't trying to kill mike. Just trying to scare you. See jack confesses that it was all his fault that l. s. t. four to seven seven sank during the attack. It says he's he steered the ship into a reef where it sank and that the enemy didn't do it at all. Tom is very angry now. And they locked jack in the cabin while mike makes one more dive on the wreck. Mike is back in the engine room now and he finds something just then dynamite from dredge operators detonates and the ship starts to collapse on mike he stuck in his regulators damaged back topside jackass yelling to get out because might my need help. Tom refuses pleased. So jack breaks out of the cabin and gives tom a karate chop knocking him out. Jack johnson finds mike. They buddy breathe while he frees him from the wreck and you get back to the bill before they surface. Susan comes aboard. Gets weeks. Tom up just mike and jack return. Jack tells suzy the ship sinking was all his fault. Susan doesn't care. She understands just then. Mike produces his find a piece of metal from japanese shell. That shank sank the four to seven seven. Jack still a hero a synthetic hero. Well i guess. Hollywood took a lot of liberties here. Let's see an ls t. Operating independently in the caribbean by itself doing battle with either a japanese ship or submarine seems a little farfetched. But as we know from mike nelson. Nothing is improbable.

"But so most people always assume I feel like it's always assumed that it's the woman that hasn't issued usually women that these fertility clinics and get these hormonal treatments. Is it standard to test also the mad? So, it's shocking to me because it is so much cheaper and easier to test the man that you hear about a lot of cases, even before starting IBF where the man is not tested, and this is because even Obgyn's even people in the field who are dealing with fertility still don't know much about or don't think about meal. Fertility which is the number will be UN's that I've met who don't know anything about the statistics meal for is actually quite shocking. And when you compare just how easy it is to testify sample, or should say the specimen it's it's actually kind of shocking that it hasn't become completely routine. When when you start to even think about CASSIA. Yeah, that is shocking. It's strange so so you have these kits that you ship overnight. Do ship them all over the world, or is it just in the US? Right now right now? We're in the US but we're expanding internationally pretty quickly as you can. Imagine, Vid has negatively impacted. Those plans but it's very much on the radar so for US Geneva base into Europe. Dubai will be. Our base into the Middle East. And we have a couple of other countries in mind as well. Yeah, so you founded legacy in two thousand eighteen right? And it was something that you kind of hatched at Harvard Innovation Labs. So, it was a very scholarly and well researched startup but it since then grown, and you've raised quite a bit of capital to grow and scale the company I. You guys got one point five million dollars. A seed round led by Bain capital ventures that was back Last year last June. And then just this January raised another three point five million dollars so obviously. There's some interest in this industry. Just when we thought you know like a sperm bank was the sperm bank. How big is this industry and have you seen a growth since you started? Massively, so I'll address a few of the points that you made so first of all the initial funding from Bain capital ventures was just from kind of some of the early fundraising than we had done. And there was there was a lot of excitement about the product enough. I'll talk about more why acting in just a second. But then we went through the white combinator program in Silicon Valley last summer fairly well known accelerator for kind of high potential startups. And so official, but going to this program is that connects you to every major investor? Basically anywhere in the world I mean you. You have investors literally flying in to watch these one hundred or so companies present at the end of the program. So that actually helped us a lot when it came to fundraising, it really opened up doors for us on the west coast of the US where you tend to see kind of investment dollars, higher valuations, and so on so..
