Those may be second order effects say if you know a businesses started in an opportunity zone and someone gets a job bob and and they're able to grow nesting that way but to get the ball rolling on this. You gotta have capital gains. What is it doing when it comes to gentrification well well. I think a lot of that remains to be seen. One of the real big open questions about this is where is all this money going so a lot of folks in the philanthropic community and who work in affordable housing for instance have been calling for the federal government to release data on where this investment is happening as it stands right now now if you want to invest in an opportunity zone the main requirement is that you follow the rules and then you tell the i._r._s. what you did there's there's a form for this <hes> but as the public we we don't really have good data or good information on where the dollars are flowing over time. I suspect the government will do some reporting on this so that if you know the policy needs to be tweaked picked in any way we can. We can start looking at what those changes might need to be. That's noah boo higher. Who is a reporter for bloomberg news talking with us about opportunity zones as part word of the president's tax cut package from two thousand seventeen. No thanks thank you and now the town of salinas california where police are taking taking an unconventional approach to mend its contentious relationship with the community this summer to selena's police department officers are tapping into the rich mexican culture of the region by donning traditional charro suits and sombreros at the rodeo and other events joining us to talk about all of this is officer gabriel carvey.

"I did my rant and rave in last week just about congress, and I guess last night whatever day it was they came to some type of an agreement. We'll see what goes on with our federal government. And we accolades last week were for just the population in general for putting up with all this nonsense bickering. This back and forth. This stuff that so anti productive. And we're in the business of understanding the government really isn't producing anything other than heartaches and headaches and misery. I guess but today I just wanted to do a salute to or a group of people that we haven't salute in a long time. And that's our first responders a day and age where there's more and more shootings, and whether it be in a Bank or a grocery store, those people showing up those people doing their job. Yes. It's their job. Yes, they're paid for this. But they've chosen this line of work because they are all about for the most part serving individuals serving people. And so I wanted to say thank you again. We have a son who lives in Salinas, California. He's a police officer is on the swat team is on me has Matt team. He's on all the teams, I guess and served a number of tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Joey, I know you're probably not listening. But thank you for what you do. And thank you for every time. I get to go over there with my wife, and my little guy we get to go on a ride along. And I see firsthand what he's doing. And I'll tell you. It's not like it looks like on TV were they're pulling out their weapon like every other commercial and firing it that that just doesn't happen makes for good TV doesn't make for real good life. But you know, what you do hear about the situations where there are officer involved shootings. And thank God. They are people out there like my son, and perhaps you have a child or a sibling who is also in law enforcement or a first responder a fireman EMT, whatever thank you thank them for what they do. Because we couldn't go on without them. The world would be even more chaotic than it is today. So thank you for those. Individuals onward and upward as they say. With the show we are all about retirement income, but we are all so about giving you good life changing information that we believe if you pick up the phone and you make an appointment you come in. You sit across the table from us. We have you bare your soul so to speak, and you tell us not just what's in your head. But what's on your heart? What's in your heart? It makes for a great relationship because this is a business of advice, and it certainly is a business of trust. And so today I wanted to delve deeper and deeper into a topic that we've really only given surface attention to really over the last year, and that's money management. I am a fiduciary I am an investment advisor. So I wanted to talk about money management really from a forty thousand foot view today because it's more esoteric than most individuals will even believe and if this. Strikes a chord with you. If you feel that what we are talking about today, you need some help in this area. Perhaps you need to have somebody take a second glance. Maybe a third glance at your portfolio perhaps are heavily invested in the market. You're wondering what in the world is going on? What should I be doing at this point in time? Should I have somebody take that second peak, and perhaps I need to be doing some reallocation? We will throw our hat into the ring. But what I'm going to talk about next. It's not about the numbers. I'll leave that to the other shows the other shows, we'll talk to you about the equity in the bond markets, and what specific stocks are doing and what we're going in the economy, but I wanted to be a little bit more esoteric with you the listener because this is critical to your understanding if you are going to be in the markets, what our responsibility is to you the investor I like to think of myself. In terms of excellence. Not in terms of mediocrity. Mediocrity, tastes horrible. It stinks. Being somebody of excellence striving for excellence tastes so much sweeter so much better. So I like to look at what we do in the money management arena as being an excellent investment advisor. There are two things you can focus on you can decide to focus on markets or you can decide to focus on people. Why would I mortgaged a relationship with you the listener an investor over a variable that I have really no control over. Now. Think about that for a second. Let me repeat that. And I'm not reading this. This is coming from my heart. Why would I mortgaged a relationship with an investor with a client over a variable? I have little if any control over at what is that variable performance? It really is at the end of the day being in the market is a crap shoot. It's like going to the. Casinos. Pulling out what they call the one armed bandit. We have a little bit more control over that. Because there are no wheels spinning in the background when it comes to investments and so forth. But again, we have decided to focus on people because in this business of money management. You must have a heart which is a combination of desire and determination and really outright, courage and an unshakable faith in what we do and in ourselves because we cannot control outcomes think about that for a second many of those in our space any money management space will make that plea for you to roll your hard earned money over to them because they believe they can do better than the guy down the street. I think on last week's show I mentioned this that is a fool's errand. Nobody can predict that. And again, I am never going to. I will not I choose not to I plant the flag firmly in the ground. I draw the line. Line clearly in the sand. I will not mortgage by relationship with any of our clients over a variable that I don't have any control because this is what I believe. And this is what you have to come to grips with as well. And the question is what do you believe? Well, this is what I believe I believe that people individuals because life happens because they're busy and preoccupied with their occupations, they are not able or even capable of establishing and maintaining what we would call a successful lifetime investment program without professional advice. Look at what happened in the last month of December of two thousand eighteen people coming in the first part of December and their accounts were up. Everything was fantastic. Look like, we're going to close out the end of the year in flying fashioned flying, color fashion. Well, we did the last three weeks were horrible. But because our clients because we position them correctly. And we understand that this is a business of behavior. Modification? That's what this business is. It's about behavior. And my behavior, and my belief is that optimism is the only long-term realism. I mentioned last week. I am a glass is half full kind of guy. So if you have put a plan together with us, we have done what we believe is an excellent job of understanding who you are as an individual. We're going to get more into this as we talk throughout the rest of the show. But I'll tell you when you look at being an optimistic person, and realizing this I love this. When I say this to people, it just makes so much sense. I hope it makes sense to you that investment losses. Short term investment losses are your ticket to the permanent gains. We're the markets are over twenty thousand years ago, they were at six thousand so all those what we call temporary pullbacks temporary losses. Short-term are your ticket to the permanent long term gains. Because this is what the other things this is for us. A lot of this is a realization process when we come to grips with what we do. And how we do it. And why we do it. It makes what we do so much more important. We also believe this that there is no relationship that exists between investment performance and invest for performance. Let me go over that. Again. We don't believe there's any relationship between investment performance an investor performance because typically investors if they're not working with a excellent investment advisor will buy when they shouldn't buy and get out when they shouldn't get out think about that. That's what we're in business to help them avoid we want you to get in. When you're supposed to get in and get out when you're supposed to get out. That's why investment performance and invest store performance. There's no relationship between the two look if you can cut your own hair. You don't need a barber. Well, I don't need a Barbara. Anyway, I guess because. I don't have any anyway, if you can fix your own teeth. You don't need a dentist if you gonna work on your own car. You don't need a mechanic, but many people can't manage their portfolio. So that's why they need people like us if you are listening today, you're say, Mark what you're saying makes complete sense. I I need a money manager. Well, then you need to pick up the phone you need to give us a call two nine six four four six four. This is not a do it yourself project managing money in the end unless you want to do it on a daily basis, and you like looking at this stuff on a daily basis, then you can do it. When you meet with us, you're going to see and you're going to hear from us that we are not going to promise you the moon. We are going to it every chance we get under sell what we're doing why? Because that we believe is the key to investor success under selling under promising and then delivering the goods perhaps in a much more robust fashion. We believe that's what more leadership is all about. If we sit across the table from you and tell you. So that we can do five ten percent more. While wouldn't that be fantastic. Then the guy down the street. Well, that would be crazy to start with most people say, look, you're earning seven percent I nine or ten is that moral leadership. We don't believe. So so the key is under selling you because we understand that short term losses, short-term rebounds. Short term setbacks or your ticket to the permanent long term gains that everybody is looking for give us a call two nine six four four six four two nine six four four six four love to hear from you. So what's our job as a money manager at the end of the day? What is it? It's insulating people as much as we possibly can from their financial fears because that's what this is the media. Wouldn't you agree? The media does a band tastic job of scaring people to death. The market is down six hundred points today. Oh my goodness. Now. That's where you have to remember what we had talked about when we had sat down with you. In the beginning said look the temporary setbacks the short-term pullbacks are your ticket to the permanent long term gains. Yeah. But Martha it's those. Yeah. Abbots the yeah. But yeah, but the market was down six hundred. Yeah. But look at what they say is happening to this company. And and the the earnings are down. Yeah. But. The short term. Pullbacks? The short term setbacks, the fickleness of the.

"Have you seen the video that has been shown all around the country now of the guy in Salinas, California licking the the. The doorbell. Have you seen that? Now. That's I know I wanna see. People had a ring video camera, and they were out of town on vacation. And it was activated when they found out that someone was at their door. Okay. And this guy I can't remember his last name. Roberto something is seen looking right into the camera. Licking the doorbell face planted up against the wall. Licking the doorbell. Like, I don't know what was going through his mind or why? But he was there for like a long time. Really just lik. So I mean what kind of finish? Would that be? I'm thinking, you know, assault efficiency, you know, like cows go to the fall, FOX and stuff like that. You put your finger up there. And you've been sweating all day, and you get a little salt on the doorbell. Yeah. And also the guy's going after the salt, man. He's probably got some kind of sodium deficiency deficiency, you know, and just go to Taco Bell like the rest of us and load up on the sodium their checkout YouTube tonight, Dr after we get off on here. I'm going to have to looking doorbell guy licking the doorbell. And he's just like he's posing for the cameras just like looking up at it. He's keeps licking the doorbell. I don't know what people's fascination infanticide with inanimate objects always kind of mystifies me. But this was a new one for the books. I never saw it. It was a lot of the fantasies. You know, there's some kind of historical precedent, something that's gone on in the person's life to causes that. So, you know, I don't know. I don't I'd have to do a little research. I wanna watch the video and maybe next week. We can talk a little bit about why food going on there. It was just one of the weirdest things I've ever seen in my life. And and I've lived a long time. And a lot of weird stuff fr. Frankly, I've done some weird stuff. Nothing that weird though. And by the way, sheep lie. We continue with Dr John Huber from mainstream mental health dot org. Dad? There's a new I guess a new study. And I I call it just like a so what does study saying arguing with your spouse can actually shorten your life would be bad for your physical health? I mean, I can't tell you the number of nights, I've slept with one eye open. And that deprivation of sleep does not help you live a healthy happy life. Thankfully, I don't have that going on in my current relationship. And you know, we've been together for almost five years now. But I agree it absolutely unnerves me the few times that we have argued that we've argued and usually it's silly selfish. BS when you when you unpack it all it's like, why were we even arguing about this in the first place, but we keep it to a minimum. And we tried to defuse that argument as soon as possible. So explain to me some of the the research behind this doctor. Well, what they did is they look at couples that had been married at least six sixteen or more years, and they did a survey of the six I sixteen years of their marriage and the ones that were bickering and fighting throughout those first sixteen years every couple every set of couples had significant chronic illness. And had shorter lifespans. And the people who did not have that bickering going on in the first sixteen years of their marriage. Now, what's interesting is that the chronic bickering it releases things like corticosteroids, and you know, like we see with Taipei personalities and and American businessman who end up with heart attacks strokes. These are the same types of things that these people are dying with and it happens in that process. And you know, you're always bickering where you hate coming home at night, you'd rather be in stuck in traffic than driving home. So why would you try to speed up and make traffic flow, and they ruined it for the rest of this. Well, that's that's what they're finding out. And if you have sixteen years or generally pleasant, maybe a few bicker moments here, and there you tended to have significantly longer lives. Ultimately, we have to remember that fifty percent of marriages end in divorce. Let me the other fifty percents end in death. And I hope that death. For you is old age. It won't be the result of me, arguing my spouse if I die at an early age, it'll be could be the smoking. It could be the Jack Daniels it could be the cocaine use in the late eighties early nineties, it it could be any number of factors. It probably won't be as a result of me having a contemptuous or argumentative relationship with my spouse. Exactly, exactly. So I mean, how do you how do you and your wife deal with arguments? Well, we we've done forever. And it's kind of interesting because her relationships, they, you know, they always involve previous yelling and raise voice. And my whole thing was like. You wanna talk about something? We'll talk about it and the minute our voices race, we stopped the conversation come back in two hours and finished conversation. We can talk about it without getting angry that used to make her very mad and upset, but I would force it. I would walk out the door. I said I'll be back in two hours and. Eventually, she realized that if we sit down and actually talk about things we can discuss our differences and work through them and not hate each other for it. And so we're going on twenty seven years something like that. And that's great. It's worked out, and you know, we live together for three years before and kind of worked out some of those communication stuff. There's still a few things that you can always tweak and fine. Tune. You have to realize that marriage is a contract just like when my practice signed a contract with a business out there to provide services. I always have to continue nurturing that contract, it's not that in stone. And if you keep nurturing the contract with your spouse, you will have a much greater longer life pleasant life, and you'll have an experience and real you'll at some point realize, it's not getting some point eight to point B. It's the journey itself. But matters. All right real quickly. Just shifting back to the. You just. No, it's fine. I told you before doctor Huber, it doesn't all have to be funny. We we have to get down to brass tacks. And be serious about real life issues from time to time because I mean, we all walk in in the same shoes. We we may have different sizes. But we basically have to walk the same path as human beings. And when it comes to relationships, there's very little funny, unless you're Ben Stiller in there's something about Mary, and you get that lotion in your hair. Anyway, exactly. So I wanted to switch gears just to second hope there's no sparkles. And Josh, you're right. Back to. Politics and politicians and the hypocrisy in the lying that is continually going on. And it's obvious that it's going on for political reasons on any side. What is the psychology of someone who lies all the time? I mean, and they they lie to the point where they actually believe the lie. Yeah. You tell a lie long enough. You will believe that lie and for some people. That's that's a big advantage. They're able to overcome Sears and things like that. But when we talk about politicians, they'll sit there and tell you they had nothing to do with a certain incident at that, they may have spearheaded and at some point they'll ask you believe they really had nothing to do with it. And they're able to sleep at night them. So it's pretty pretty costly pretty traumatic for the rest of us. What we do know is the American public has about a three month memory. So if you can just get your name out in the media, even if it's bad things you can keep from getting kicked out of office. Right. Then in three months, you're good to go. People are going to be right behind you again. Because they remember you are in the media. But they don't remember why. So they. Must've been something. Good 'cause I'm not gonna follow a bad guy. And boom there you go. You got more credibility, and you could be totally total total evil person. But it's it's how memory works. And it's how people want to believe who they are. And why they would remember good versus bad people, for example. And this is just one example of many, and I could use Republicans or Democrats as my example, talking to Dr John Huber from mainstream mental health dot org. Elizabeth Warren making setting up an exploratory committee to run for president twenty twenty and making the trip to Iowa where the first caucuses are. In other words, the start started the primary season when that cut rolls around. And God knows how many people are going to be in that. I mean, it's outdoor a lot of Republicans in two thousand sixteen looks like they're at least that many times in half over Democrats who may be contending for president in two thousand twenty. But Elizabeth Warren. Every asleep. She makes the big mistake of having this this TV ad where she has been claiming native American heritage all these years and finds out that she is one one thousand twenty fourth navy. I mean, I'm I'm closer to chemo Sabi than she is. Yeah. Exactly. I don't know why she didn't just go to an Indian reservation you're saying that. Attention spans are so short people forget that. Amen. A. Yeah. And you have to do a better job of bringing it to the surface. Then when I hit the air because people are going. Oh, yeah. I remember that. And they really don't remember it the right way. They remember it how they want to remember it, and they blow it off, and they ignore it and don't pay attention. So it's really hard to reeducate and remind people that and it has to do with how fallible our memories really are. There are other people like President Trump, for example. Who said that he never had a relationship was stormy Daniels. And he never paid. Obviously, those things are not true. I mean, I think if we're being honest with ourselves. Yes. The president at some point. Had a consensual affair with a porn star. And right, and then had his fixer pay her off to save his reputation. Right. But some of us like me. And I really don't care about that. Why when you claim to be something that you're not and Donald Trump never claimed to be holier than thou or having marital record? He aired his dirty marital laundry in the airwaves in the media. How many times we been divorced in national news Marla Maples Marla? Yeah. All the way around. Yeah. He was showing off that Blang said look what I did. And I got the money to pay off the woman who was who is jilted. Look, I did but anybody who had any illusions about Donald Trump's marital fidelity or the fact that he's a challenged individual. Like, we all are. I mean, they're just living with their heads in the sand or something. I mean, I I voted for him in spite of the Billy Bush video that probably even added more grist for my mill when the Billy Bush video was released what two three weeks before the election a month before the election is like, oh they've been sitting on this for a while. And they they sat on for a long time. And they were trying to get it within that three month window. They played earlier people would have forgotten about it. They blowing it off and the data actually had time to process and realized that that was fifteen years earlier in the locker room, and he's never been to or even accused of inappropriate behavior that went along with those statements. Unlike some of our other presidents who shall remain nameless. Yes. Yes. And Hillary Clinton in the Benghazi hearings at this point, what does it matter? In other words, I think she was grasping onto what you were talking about it been so long since the Benghazi thing happened. She's like at this point. What does it matter because she counted on the American people to not to not care or to forget about the four Americans were killed and clap faster. Yeah. Absolutely Darcy Huber. It's always highly enlightening and always greatly entertaining for me to talk to you on these these Tuesday evenings. And I hope there will be many many more to come in the new year. I do too. You never know what's going to happen. But I'm gonna keep doing it. As long as you'll have. I think it's a great great platform. Great show. And you know, it's I'm just I'm just gonna be part of your show. I'm I'm planning on not arguing with my spouse because I don't want it to shorten my time on earth there in not having the opportunity to talk to you more. See my whole my whole meaning for living now is living another week. So I can talk to Dr John Huber from mainstream mental health. This is my motivating factor now. Well, my wife has the way let me know when she's angry at me, she she paints my toenails, while I'm sleeping really mad when she's really mad. She paints sticks the sheets on. So when I get up in the morning. It's like been short cheated. I ended up on my face. So I I think you piss often purpose because you like your toenails painted doctor Huber have a wonderful evening. I talk to you later, Dr. Thank you. And as always we close out this nightcap with the playing national anthem to honor America on seven hundred wwl w..

"I happened to be standing in a huge celery field in Salinas, California, right before the salary was about to be harvested and tweeted out a picture of the field and asked if people could identify the vegetable some of you guessed parsley, others thought it might be salon tro or 'love', although celery is one of the most commonly consumed vegetables, many of us have never actually seen it growing in a field where it looks a lot different than it does in those little plastic sleeves that we see in the grocery store despite the huge growth of farmer's markets community gardens and CSA's in recent years. The vast majority of the food that we eat is still produced by larger scale growers the fruit and vegetable farmers cattle, ranchers, dairy, farmers and others who fill up the bins and the shelves at our local grocery stores with an unbelievable abundance and variety of fresh food week after week year round over the past couple of years. I've had the opportunity to visit. Many of these operations and to meet some of the people who dedicate their lives to feeding you and me, and I want you to meet them to and to learn more about this vital link in our food chain over the next several weeks leading up to the American thanksgiving holiday. I'm going to be talking to some of the people who are helping to bring that feast as well as every other days meals to our table this week. I spoke with Dale hus-. He's the vice president of artichoke production for ocean mist farms. They're headquartered in Castroville, California and ocean mist farms is the largest grower of fresh artichokes in the United States for many of us fresh artichokes are bit of a novelty not something that we buy and prepare on a weekly basis. But you know, maybe we should be one medium artichoke provides three and a half grams of protein and almost seven grams of fiber all for just sixty calories in particular, artichokes, are high in anyone type of insoluble fiber that acts as prebiotics. Nick, providing food for those beneficial bacteria in our gut artichokes are also very high in antioxidant activity, in addition to artichokes, Oshima's farms, also grows beets, and broccoli and cauliflower and lettuce and lots of other different kinds of vegetables, including yes, celery, incites, throughout California, Arizona, and Mexico, and I was interested to learn that ocean mist grows both organic and conventional produce my interview with Dale is coming up.
