35 Burst results for "Twelve Thousand Dollars"
Massive Coolers at High Stakes Live Cash
"Let's dive in to these hands. We're going to start out with hand from live at the bike. John you wanna break down the action for. Yeah if you're so this. I believe they're playing by one hundred one hundred two hundred fifty one hundred. Two hundred eighty as the big wind is two hundred dollars. Jd opens quinton off suit to eight hundred. James wakes up with aces and the cut off and puts an a pretty standard size three. But this is where the hand starts getting a little wacky. Honestly andy wakes up in the struggle with pocket kings and decides to just flat the through bet listening the audio commentary for this had and the commentators seem to imply that like. Jd had some reason to be tilted before the start of this and he started the hand with exactly twelve thousand dollars. So i think it's very possible that maybe he got stacks very Like you know maybe right before this hand and just reloaded for twelve k And thought that maybe. Andy is trapping kings here with the hopes that jd would find some sort of four bet Or you know just rip in his twelve k stack over the three but And he'd be able to kind of put. James tough spot if james aside flat or or do something with After three bedding so Yeah already sort of often kind of a strange. Start here with andy. A flooding the kings pre flop. Do you know anything about james specifically because it could be the james He is an elderly gentleman. And so is it possible that james just has such a tight three about range that andy doesn't have a four bit range versus james three but i mean okay so what i know about james is. He's a regular on these high six games on my but the bike he plays very very frequently. I'm gonna assume that he's not a professional or like never was a appro. But you know i think he's like you said like leave. It reaches certainly going to be tighter than it should be that being said like i. I still can't see. Andy not forgetting kings just as the standard plate universities. A three from james i. I don't think james is is someone who only has like aces kings queens in king. I think he's gonna at least have you know more more hands than like the ultra-tight wreck player through about range. I mean we'd have to ask andy to know what his strategy construction is here. We can't no i think. The commentators speculating in the same way that. we're speculating. And i think that you know this is. They're very deep here right. Yeah pretty deep spot. It's a three about pot. Already to andy and i don't know i'm not exactly sure. Always constructing is prefab strategy. I do know that. He called very quickly though which means that he kind of knows what he's doing in this spot for some reason or another whether it be the read that like you know the twelve k stacks just gonna jayme it in Although you know facing a three bad and then a cold flat like you have to think that the twelve k stack is going to be a little hesitant to just acts stack in no matter how tilted they
Why Larry Elder Is Fighting for the Governorship of California
"Yes i am running for governor of california. I've been officially erica. Politicians for all of a little more than two weeks and in two weeks according to the polls i have twenty three percent my next rival. I forget how much he has been very much. I'm already the front runner on the republican side but that probably isn't even that That big of a deal because this to stamp deal The voters in california. I have to vote to recall gavin. Newsom there requires fifty percent plus one voter to do so that it will be added up later on and assuming fifty percent plus one have voted to remove gavin newsom. Then you go to. Who do you want to replace him. And so far. I'm the leader. But the reason i'm getting into this race eric is because of the way this man has shut down the state in the more severe way any of the other forty nine states. He literally was sitting at the french restaurant called. The french. laundry hadn't even heard of until in this happened in napa valley. He incurred a twelve thousand dollar wine tab by the way we taxpayers have to spend but more were had to pay more than that he was sitting there with the very lobbyist and a medical fresh knows his cabinet That draft very mandates that he was violating but not wearing masks by not socially distancing that we have the problem rising crime or the problem of rising home. Is this the first time in our state's history Net migration out of california and the primary reason that people making between fifty and one hundred k. Give leaving california is that they cannot afford the price of a
California Governor Gavin Newsom Has a Problem and Larry Elder Is Here to Solve It
"Gavin newsom has a problem on his hands. He's got. He's got a problem with a lot of disaffected angry. Frustrated californians who just simply are fed up with the direction the state is going. And i'm hearing from california's every day. Who say larry elder is exactly what this state needs. And where do you start. Two point two million californian signed a petition to recall this man and it is estimated that between twenty five percent. They've even thirty percent. Were independent and democrats voted him just two years earlier. You start with the famous meal that he had at the restaurant called the french laundry. I never heard of it. Until until i found out it was in napa valley and i thought it was one of the most elite restaurants in california is not i thought it was. The most elite restaurant in america is not one of the most elite restaurants in the world and wind. Tab alone was twelve thousand dollars being picking picking it up and it wasn't just that he was dining there while he was shutting down business elsewhere. He was dining with the very same medical professions. Who dropped who drafted the corona virus mandate. They were violating. They weren't totally distancing wearing masks and meanwhile he has his own kids in private education in school and he exempted his own winery from the mary a mandate he was imposing on everybody else. Now i was a small businessman. I ran a business for fourteen years. It was accessible. I sold it was still going after i sold. It didn't liquidated didn't go bankrupt. But i will tell you more. Nearly half of all small businesses in going bankrupt and those revive are often operating on very thin margins. How many lies. How many dreams. How many hopes that. He just dashed by shutting down this date in the most severe way than any other governor.
Eligible U.S. Families With Children will receive Child Tax Credit Payments
"More than thirty six million american families. We'll start seeing extra money in their bank accounts today. The irs is sending out the first round of payments that are part of the expanded child tax credit the average family. We'll get about three thousand dollars total for each child. that's a big increase. Since the usual child tax credit is up to two thousand dollars for each child. People won't get all the money at once though families with children under age six. We'll get up to three hundred dollars per child every month for children between six and seventeen. It's two hundred fifty dollars and there is no limit on the number of children. Everyone qualifies except the most affluent families for parents who filed taxes as a single person. The cap is one hundred twelve thousand dollars a year. It's one hundred fifty thousand dollars for married couples who file their taxes together. People with higher incomes will get smaller payments. The extra money will come every month until the end of this year. Either through direct deposit or check in the mail. The rest of the tax credit can be claimed as a tax refund next year as the new york times reports. Nearly ninety percent of all american children have parents who qualify for the tax credits. Bipartisan experts predict the payments could cut child poverty in half however some critics have said not everyone who's getting these payments really needs them so they believe at least some of the money is going to waste still. Congress approved the expanded child tax credit as part of the last relief package in

This is the daily tech news for friday january. Eighth twenty twenty. One in los angeles on tom. Merit and from studio redwood on sarah lane from studio colorado. I'm shannon morris drawn the top tech stories in cleveland. I'm lynn per nine. The show's producer. Roger j we were just talking about a cas product that makes you ice cream and ninety seconds whenever you wanted and why roger never cries wider conversation join our expanded show. Good day internet at patriotair dot com slash dpd s. Let's start with a few things you should know. Amazon has discontinued its prime pantry. Grocery and household item service products previously available in pantry will now be available like any other products on amazon. So it's not going away to gather but the service itself prime pantry launched in twenty fourteen offering reduced shipping on up to forty five pounds of household goods for a monthly fee. Amazon node vied prime pant pantry subscribers about the closure in december and then issued refunds the. Uk's competition and markets authority launched an investigation into google's privacy sandbox. That would block third party. Cookies in chrome regulator received complaints from the marketers for an open web coalition saying the plan would abuse google's dominant position in online advertising. So the investigations going to evaluate. If the privacy sandbox changes would concentrate advertising spending market share with google samsung launched the galaxy chromebook to a cheaper version of the galaxy chromebook at launched last year so instead of four k it has a ten eighty p lcd screen with less storage fewer cameras less ram. It's also heavier and thicker overall but it also now starts at five hundred forty nine dollars instead of one thousand dollars. That has a thirteen point. Three inch nineteen twenty by ten eight hundred sixteen nine. Lcd touchscreen with the dual core intel seller on five twenty five you upgradable to an intel core. I three ten ten eleven ten one. one zero. You eight gigs. Ram and one hundred twenty five gigs of storage for six hundred ninety nine dollars a shortage of semiconductors affecting automakers. Volkswagen said last month that they needed to adjust first-quarter manufacturing plans around the globe because of the shortage. Now honda says it will cut domestic output by about four thousand cars this month at one of its factories in japan nissan is adjusting production numbers for its note hatchback model and ford has moved up previously planned downtime at a kentucky plant for its sport utility vehicle factory to the jin chips all right. Well we're talking about cars. Let's talk about the the apple car. Yeah a lot of rumors as of late will really over the last few years. But but but the rumors had resurfaced recently and hyundais. Now talking to apple about kerr's so says the company hyundai representative told cnbc quotes. We understand that apple isn't discussion with a variety of global automakers including hyundai motor as the discussion is at its early stage. Nothing has been decided. Korean economic daily said that apple suggested the arrangements and hundred was reviewing the terms that involved e production and also battery development hyundai has had his own battery platform called e. g. m. p. going into production later this year. So might be saying what you're doing. Reuters sources say that apple would like to produce a passenger vehicle by twenty twenty four however might not be that date bloomberg's mark gurman reports in thomas e. v. from apple is five to seven years away and michio recently said he wouldn't be surprised if it takes until twenty twenty eight. Yes what's probably going on. Here is apple and i think this significant part has decided to start investigating how they would build. Whatever it is. They're going to build whether it's a whole car or an integrated platform and they're going to different manufacturers and parts suppliers and folks like magna including hyundai. And saying what are you got. How can you help us with this. And is a great company for this because they make parts they make systems. They make full cars. There's all kinds of services in the conday company that could play a part with apple so it may not be. That apple knows what they want from hyundai. It may just be that they're going and saying hey let's talk. You do a lot of the kinds of things that we think we're going to need. I'm pretty excited about this. I just got my first hyundai ever this year and my perception of this story was weight but hyundai currently uses android auto and a lot of their their cars. So i would love to see. How apple would integrate Hyundai's current technologies into something that is very useful for that apple ecosystem not just looking at e itself but also the The the systems inside of it the controls in how they would manage that four a driver and a passenger in the car. Yeah i mean. I think that's one of the big questions that i have is okay. Let's say let's say it's hyundai that that applet ended up working with with clearly not set in stone at least from what we know at this point. But let's say it's the companies for kicks. Let's imagine that that's what it is. Yeah it is. It is an apple car that hyundai produces a lot of parts for the way that works with lots of other companies to produce other hardware for apple. I mean that that's the loftiest kind of goal that we're looking at and maybe that would take till twenty twenty eight at you know if if apple was lucky. I think it probably has more to do with like you said shannon not that you know android auto wouldn't still be prevalent in a lot of passenger vehicles but maybe at some sort of it's a special relationship. It's it's a special kind of os inside a car that is supposed to you. Know i don't know move some merch because What apple is providing on the software side is is. Is that much more interesting. I really don't know if you look at that. Bloomberg article mark gurman sources are saying that Tesla people that apple has hired are working on things like interior exterior. Drive train stereo. Desist the kinds of things. You need when you're building a car not carting a software platform so then the question becomes is it the apple car period. Maybe hendaye makes it. Maybe somebody else makes it. And you know they'll figure out how to distribute it or is it the apple car by sunday and you go to hyundai dealership to buy it the way you went to an. At and t. store to an apple iphone but it's really apples car in cooperation with sunday. Are there multiple partners. I mean that's all the kind of stuff we're waiting to see but it really does feel like we have gotten to the point where this is no longer just yeah. They're working on project titan. They don't know what they're gonna do to. They have an idea. It's more than just software and they're working out the details. Maybe they don't even know that yet. Well i'm interested to see what happens but we also have some other news. Security among the systems impacted by the solar winds attack is the electron filing system. Used by the us federal courts at investigation is underway to determine if confidentiality of documents filed with the courts was breached and as a result starting wednesday confidential documents filed with the courts will be stored on standalone systems. Not uploaded big difference so these are documents sealed from public access because they contain sensitive information like investigative techniques identities of informants and a lot more other. Us federal agencies affected included the justice department the state treasury and energy departments as well solar winds has engaged. The krebs stay most security consulting group to help deal with this attack. That firm was formed by alex. Stamos the former chief security officer at yahoo and facebook and chris krebs the former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency or sisa. So krebs was fired last month. By the president after finding no evidence of with voting systems in the twenty twenty election. Yeah stamos first of all brilliant for those two to team up and smart for solar winds to engage them for what they say is Helping with transparency with companies that are affected But this we we are not done finding out how bad this is. There are reports that there may have been other ways that this whoever is behind this intruded beyond just solar winds. They're finding evidence of that. They have not been able to root out the people that got into this vulnerability from all systems yet. They're still in there in a lot of cases. And you know this. This kind of confidential information is exactly the kind of thing you fear that someone would get intruding into a government system informants investigative techniques that you can now learn from to evade being prosecuted or caught yourself. That's that's crown jewel type stuff it's it's very interesting. In fact krebs spoke on record saying that it could potentially take years to figure out how deep the solar winds attack actually went and how many different kinds of infrastructure. You know brands and everything that it might have affected so this is not something. That's going to die anytime soon. I'm glad that they are reaching out. Craig's and stay most though because that i agree with you tom. It's excellent. excellent team roku made a few interesting announcements roku says. Npd data shows that the roku s was the top selling smarter operating system in the us and canada in two thousand twenty thirty one percent market share in canada. Thirty eight percent in the united states That's pushed the samsung's tizen number two. At least we don't actually know samsung's ties and was number. One in two thousand nineteen also announced a wireless soundbar reference design that uses wifi for its roku. Tv ready program remember. Last year roku announced the program which had a designed for wired. Sound bars. The program includes tcl. Pokemon on an element has just announced. They'll join as well with two point. Two point one ready sound bars roku tv ready to expand internationally later this year as well. But here's the big roku news roku has agreed to acquire exclusive global distribution rights to more than seventy five Shows documentaries some of which had not been released before qube shutdown. So there'll be some new stuff that nobody's ever seen after their exclusivity deal expires. That'll happen in a bit more than a year. Depending on the show roku will still have the rights to show the content just not exclusively until thousand twenty seven the content will have to be presented in original increments of ten minutes or less. The deal doesn't let them stitch it altogether. The content will be added to the more than forty thousand movies and tv shows already available. In the roku channel shows include from Be anyway punked. Murder house. Flip and dummy which stars anna kendrick. I never watched the new punk. I heard had its moments. The whole qube thing. It's really interesting to me because it was sort of like. It crashed and burned so quickly. And there's a lotta shot and friday around folks in the industry about it. And i think that's not because qube was doing things wrong. It was because the company had raised so much money time. Because you know. They had meg whitman. Jeffrey katzenberg who are you know. Heavy hitters and there was a little bit of like you are being to embassies and therefore you shall fail. The company did fail and the idea that some creators will have a new life on another platform shows. That just don't even saw but people still worked on. And maybe you're really good. I think this this makes a lotta sense and good for roku to get exclusivity for at least a few years so does roku have to wait at all in order to start showing this content or can happen immediately. I don't know when the start date. Whenever the deal is you know goes into effect. Then they'll immediately be able to to show it so you know within a month or so it would be my guess anyway but no they. They don't have once. The deal is actually in effect. They don't have to wait. What's going on here. is that the baby. Production companies own the rights to their own stuff but they have a two year exclusive for each one of their shows with qube and those two year exclusives are now being transferred to roku so roka will be able to have the exclusive for the remainder of whatever. The period was with quick. That's why it's more a year. Exclusively goes away then they still have the right to show it until twenty twenty seven but the production companies that made it can now start shopping at around to other places as well so the production companies do hold the content and remember this is just the content. Qube is still in a over. Its turnstile technology which is holding it up from selling its technology and i would expect once it resolves that lawsuit should resolve it in a way that they still hold their technology. They'll sell that to so this isn't the last you're going to hear could be selling off a part of it. I would imagine. Gotcha yeah that whole. The whole technology part of qube was again was an ambitious thing that was released at a very inopportune time in twenty twenty when everyone was like. We're just sitting at home like we don't need this like mobile phone technology. It's like cool that you can shifted around but you can't even cast thing. I mean the company did fix that pretty soon after allow about she was just. I mean it's just did. The timing couldn't be worse but that technology when you think of it in a variety of other form factors such as monitors that swivel talked about some of those yesterday. I don't know that qube or tiktok or snapchat or all of the stuff where we're like. Oh yeah that's the. That's the portrait view. Rather than landscape view. That works for certain apps is is is all that this is four. I think there's more to it So we'll see what happens and there's patents and things that are always valuable because you can use those to extract some concessions and money and stuff. So yeah expect that all to come join the conversation in our discord which you can join by linking to a patriotic. Can't get in there and talk about your favourite qube shows with all the other discord folks. Just lincoln to your patriotic out at patriotair dot com slash. Dpd s all right shannon. How do you clone a security key. Well i i will say please do not stop using your security keys because of this story i will explain it. Researchers from ninja lab published a paper on thursday showing how you could clone a google tightened security gate this is a two factor authentication key which is very similar to a you. Be key that you have to plug in or tap in order to access an account after putting in your username or your password credentials. Were both so in order to pull off the clone. You would need physical access to the key for about ten hours. Sometimes a minimum of ten hours just kind of depends on how good you are at this. About twelve thousand dollars worth of equipment physical equipment and custom software and some advanced skills in electrical engineering and cryptography as well. So you have to remove the chip and then take measurements of it at a being registered on each account that you went to attack the measurements observe electro magnetic radiation as the chip generates digital signatures that let the attacker slowly deduced the private key so measurements take about six hours per account. That's not including taking apart. The original tighten security key putting it back together. Then you need to seal the chip back into its case. You also need the targets password in order for this to work. So the reason it works is because of vulnerability in the security hardware chip residing within the google titan key and that is called an eighty seven hundred x by this company called. Xp if it's exploited in attacker could grab the elliptic curve cryptographic private key for the account and the same chip is actually found in other two factor. Authentication physical tokens as well like There's a ubiquity that it's found in but chances of attack or very very minimal given the scope of the attack so if you do all of this without the target ever noticing then they would never duplicated key but again given the scope given how much it costs and everything behind the scenes probably when it happened to normal user. The point of these security keys being the best way to use For two factor. Is that you can't even get at your private key right you. Nobody has to be able to get in there like the chip. Just doesn't make it available so the fact that they were able to get in there and get it is huge. You know the fact that they were able to do this is significant. But i mean if you're not a target of an advanced persistent threat. You don't need to worry about this. No one's going to go to the trouble to do this. And even if you're a target. I would guess shannon that most of them probably would be able to notice if someone took their key for ten hours or more you. You likely likely would especially since a lot of people with hardware tokens like google titan will stick them on a on their keychain for example like with their house keys or whatever wherever they keep all those personal physical devices that they don't want lost or stolen they keep them all on engaging so if somebody was to take one of these out of your purse out of your gym locker wherever it might be and remove it for like ten hour street minimum. You would likely know that this would have happened. the neat thing about these chips inside of these. Google tightened security keys. And any other cryptographic hardware tokens like these is that. Even the manufacturer doesn't know the private key so the fact that they were able to find vulnerability on these specific chipsets is really interesting. And i think that's the important bit of that. Is is even though the google titan like the end all be all of really excellent. Two factor authentication. There's always. The potential that vulnerabilities can be found. So i'm happy that this research came out. It's so fascinating and it's so interesting in this means that an x. p. and other security chipset manufacturers that sell these teeny tiny chips to google or whoever the company might be They can build on this. They can research and figure out what the next version of their chipset needs to entail in order to not be vulnerable to this again in the future. Yeah i mean this is really a good security story right. We finally figured out because there's always a way right. We finally figured out the way you get the private key out of a security key and guess what it's really hard takes a long time and now that we know it we can make it even harder and hopefully you know push that barrier out even further and even if somebody did have time to do this and you didn't notice i was reading the paper because i'm a huge nerd and they go as far as using fuming fuming nitric acid in order to get like melt the epoxy off of the original google titan. How are you going to put that back together. In order for somebody to not notice like there's a lot of intricacies with this attack in order for it to actually be pulled off so chances are very very slim that somebody would be able to pull off so again as i said at the very beginning. Don't stop using your google tightened security key if you have one keep using it because chances are you would never be attacked with this. Just just know if you haven't seen it in ten hours look together strange. This is going to be in a movie though. I'm calling that shot right now. We're gonna we're gonna see this movie. Where like i hope so. Somebody goes into surgery and they take his key and they go out and do all this and they slip it back in because ten hours later. He wakes up from anesthesia on something like that. I just hope they talked to the researchers so they actually show it off right. Yeah Sony tv and audio announcements Starting with details for its own tv lineup. Sticking with lead ravi x four k and k. Tv's will support four k at one hundred twenty hertz variable refresh rate vr as well as a l l m low latency mode and e arc. These are all things that are important. If you've got a ps five now you've got sony. Tv they can go. That sony also has an improved a chip that is going to improve the picture and sound positioning. So it aligns with what you see on the screen. Sony's master series. Tv's will come with a sensor that adjusts white balanced immense. Your ambiente color temp. You don't have to do anything they'll just do it. Also an aluminum heat shield. That will make for brighter. All the sets will support. Hdmi two point one. Another big one for ps five dolby vision hdr angle tv. Sony also announced. It's three hundred sixty reality audio platform if you're not familiar with three hundred sixty degree audio places instruments and vocals in a virtual sound field around your head but using just the one speaker so you can do this in an amazon echo or google. Home sony will start streaming video with three sixty audio later this year. Starting with concert from zara larsson on january eleventh. And somebody's gonna make speakers that support this. It'll be may supported by other speakers as well. But sony is going to put out the are five thousand and three thousand They've got that dark cloth. Surface that all these speakers seem to have these days with either bronze or silver accents. Work with google and amazon assistance and can connect to select sony abroad via. Tv's as well as supporting wi fi bluetooth. Spotify connect in google cast. The speakers do automated calibration to the room. They're in donut. The press a button for that. Either and we'll simulate three hundred sixty degree audio for stereo tracks as well. The five thousand cost five hundred pounds or five hundred ninety nine euros no. Us price yet on the three thousand two hundred eighty pounds. Three hundred fifty nine euros. This seems this. Seems like it's shaping up to be one of the trends. Is this the sort of three hundred sixty degree audio while you're listening to your black bank and it's just one speaker or potentially a couple of speakers ativan. Maybe yeah yeah already supported. Yeah there's less of kind of like What do i have to do. Five point one surround or at least get a couple of speakers and make them a stereo pair type thing. I really haven't heard this in. I don't know. I used to hang out at magnolia at best. Buy all the time. And just like geek out on stuff like this. of course. this technology wasn't around at the time. But it's really come on. Let's turn on some stuff and see the speakers. Do it works well. Then that's awesome my first reaction because i got rid of my kind of pants speakers some years ago because friend of mine needed them more than i did and i didn't have room in my apartment but i miss that i'm also an a. A permanent now that's smaller and kind of has a lot of weird angles and i find audio bounces off walls in wiz. That wouldn't if it was more of a square box broom So i'm not sure that i'm the perfect target market for this. You're the you're the one puts this through its paces and sees if it really works. Yeah if i could actually work as advertised again with some funny angles in a big old frame. Then i'm i'm really into this and i've always been. I don't have a sony. Tv currently sorry zony. But i was abroad. Bravi a person for years. Nears i think what the new bravi line is coming out with. Looks really nice. And i mean not totally in the market for a new tv. But i like the fact that i might get a new sony again paired up with a sony speaker. You got three six. Yeah already got all this stuff. It's going to be a messed anyway. You slice it. But i like. I like this to be sixty reality audio platform. What would you have set up in your house. I was straight up going to mention sonos because if if it doesn't have the connectability to be able to work with all of my other platforms that currently have invested in. Then chances are i wouldn't buy it. So i do have sono says in my house and i do have some issues connecting those with other speakers in the household to like like my google hub for example so the fact that this works with google and amazon assistant the speaker specifically The audio speakers. I think that's pretty cool. I like that. They are bringing that in and i am interested because i do live in a household. That has very high ceilings. How this would work in that kind of environment. So yeah. I'm very interested in the audio aspect. Well you might also be interested in what colour has come out. Oh yes the folks who make things like toilets and and sinks and lots of appliances however. Been a real. Cas mainstay for the last few years for some cool innovations and this year is no different. Even though we're not in vegas koehler has a new smart bathtub called the stillness bath. That lets you use an app or use your voice using google or amazon's assistance to fill up the water or perhaps set the mood by changing the color of the lights around the tab or even add some fog.

The Amish Pandemic Sewing Frolic
"It was friday april tenth. Two thousand twenty. The pandemic was really starting to roar. Ppe was scarcely in the supply chains. Were already breaking down. Every hospital was scrambling to find enough masks gowns and face shields. It was already every state every institution for itself. It was everywhere in the papers. Page one page to page three on page nine of the new york times dateline creek ohio. A headline cut on ape. Make a sewing frolic in ohio. The amish take on the corona virus. The story struck a deep chord in a state with us throughout these long months. The way this isolated centuries old self. Reliant community was rising to the occasion and collaborating with the world. Outside was something we wanted to know more about your attempt to record story. A new collaboration was born in that way that the pandemic has triggered all manner of new collaborations artists. Laurie anderson ohio born designer stacey hoover and producer. Evan jacoby all joined with the kitchen sisters to bring these voices to wear today. The kitchen sisters present. The great amish sewing frolic sugar creek. Ohio inca i. John miller manufacturer here with deep connections to the close knit amish community of central of got a call from cleveland clinic. When i get a call from purchasing cleveland cleaning at midnight i know needs. The hospital system was struggling to find protective face masks for it's fifty five thousand employees plus visitors. I thought about the fact that every amish lady in a community knows how we could then utilize the talents of the ladies into to make protective gear. Could his team so twelve thousand dollars. In two days he appealed to abe choi. Kind a local lumber neil and goods business and leader in the amish community. I called deep. Troyer and said make a sewing frolic a day later. Mr troyer had signed up sixty amish home. Seamstresses and cleveland clinic sewing from was i made patriotic ones. I think mine are also the other ones are from my sister. Sarah may meet those jeff. I am rudy Homemade candies. I'm curious sister. I am esther troyer. We had the candy store in the basement of our house. Frolic usually is using up as barn. Succumb people come from all around spectators as well as i have. Four course meal nash. Potatoes some kind of me sal desert. Some kind of dessert should be retire. But that doesn't pay the bills. So i can do this. The frolic of masks sewing is just. It's a group getting together doing a project as good. 'cause i went to egypt troyer to bring supplies. He's got three or four women in his own that console and they were cutting. The little wire knows please. That goes in the mass to conform to your nose on the kitchen table. Literally within three days the sewing machines were set up we had. I'm running in times like this. When can't have you no more than ten people in a room together you know. There's there's around. Ten thousand sewing machines in amish homes abe went and recruited sixty or one hundred sewers literally overnight and we may twelve thousand masks for cleveland clinic and forty eight hours that then turned into an order for one hundred forty thousand which scaled again. Currently we are making seven hundred and thirty eight thousand masks for the state of ohio.
Should I accept Bitcoin as a payment method?
"Hey Chris this is nick from Salem I recently found your show after a friend recommended it and really enjoying all the side hustle stories I'm getting ready to launch a new APP that will be available for android devices. I'm going to apply for listing in the Google play store as well as several other online directories, but I also want to offer it for direct sale. My own website that we can sell to people who discovered there with the paying commission third party. Again, even offer a discount for direct sales. And come out still ahead by splitting the commission savings between me and my customer. But of course to sell directly I, need away to accept payment pales easy enough. But a friend suggested that I offer an option to take bitcoin as well. I'm not sure if that's a good idea or even how I would go about doing it since there's not really a Bitcoin Bank on every corner at these not right live. Also, what do you think about cryptocurrency in general thanks and I look forward to hearing your response. Thanks Nick appreciate you calling in and let us try to stay on topic here. I. Could probably talk about cryptocurrency for a long time but I don't know that I'm really an expert. So I want to focus on a question of accepting it as a payment option for your side-hustle. Oh, and by the way, I want to say that Knicks idea of selling directly on his website in general leaving aside the payment option thing that is really smart because as he said, he can even offer a discount. Encouraging people to come directly to his website and still come out ahead because Google play and the APP store or the apple APP store they take significant commission. Okay. So definitely good idea there now in terms of whether you wanNA take bitcoin or. Theory or some other crypto currency. I think you operate as an option if your customers wanted. And chances are unless you're selling something and the security your industries maybe there's some other stuff I thought about but. It was something kind of specialized there. Most of your customers won't like I don't think you're GonNa have an avalanche of customers just beating on your door saying I would love to buy from you but if only took bitcoin. Who knows but I would say if you do it and it is possible to do that look at services like coin wallet and Are Different Ways that you can essentially take this as an option in addition to pay pal. But if you do offer it, here's a tip look listings of other sites that accept bitcoin is a currency. They have some directories for people who are actually really into this and want to shop buying sell goods using crypto. If nothing else you can probably get some links from them because they're compiling directories of merchants, take it. So it might actually not be a bad SEO strategy when you're starting out to get links whether or not you get a lot of purchases from it. I would just say don't expect a lot of takers because the number of people who use Bitcoin to buy and sell common items not talking about trading talking about your savings and all that stuff. But the number of people who use Bitcoin to buy and sell common items is pretty small at least right now who knows maybe that will change. The introduction at the price of a Bitcoin is currently about twelve thousand dollars but you know you'd be listening to this. A month or two in the future even just even a short time and it could be totally different. Let alone a year from now or something. So who knows what's going to happen there but nick good luck with your side side-hustle everybody else. Thank you so much for listening.
Should I Use My Employer's Car Lease Benefit?
"Ethan is in Detroit High Ethan. Welcome to the Dave Ramsey show. Doing great man how can we help? I word for an automotive maker manufacturer and engineer there. Can One of the company perks or benefits I guess. That they offer is a employee leaf option, right? So I I can get a vehicle. It's a one year lease. Yep a London Mile with insurance included YEP and repairs. Repairs Maintenance wrinkly Irish included everything's included. Yep and prior to. Working there I was paying around two hundred insurance. Idea of And I'm debating. So my current payment is around five fifty and actually brought my wife's and on the program recently. I'm debating even worth it to carry that. The Fowler. The lease on your employment on your employees deal. Yeah Okay. You're on and you're driving a nice car. Yeah it is. It's a truck. You you didn't take. You didn't take the cheaper chicken you got the big dog. Well Who is Ford. Our Jeanne outs. I. Chrysler Oh. Okay. All right. Well, I've looked at several of these Nissan is here in our neighborhood I've looked at the Ford one. I've looked at the GM. Went off the top of my head but most of these have nothing to do with a traditional card lease. It's an employee benefit program. You're basically got a car completely furnished miles everything insurance everything's built in at five fifty. You can't touch that truck for that. Truck goes down five, hundred, fifty dollars a month in value if you own it. And you got insurance and maintenance and gas and everything they include gas don't they some of them Goodson doesn't okay but it's got everything is maintenance included. All maintenance. So car breaks, you just take it in. Yeah. So this is not a this is an employee benefit. This not lie to Lee. Not, Your Evil Carly's program right that the other side of your company sales. But this is a great deal for you Ethan driving around. Yeah. It's a round. where? I, thought you were thought. Dadgum usually, it's not five fifty. It's usually like three hundred when I'm running into these things but you got your driving seventy thousand dollars truck. That's the thing. So good for you. You cannot touch that truck for that kind of money it's six grand a year and everything's G. if I worked there I would do that deal. This is not a finance plan. This is not a lease. This is a simple employee benefit and it is a killer employee benefit do it I guess we're kind of debating knows. So my wife is on it too. She has a wrangler. Yeah, and I'm wondering if it's worth to have two vehicles on that, we're trying to get something cheaper off. Let me try this again, you cannot operate a vehicle for three times what you're paying. Car Think. About. It add insurance. Maintenance depreciation. In value right now, put those three numbers in the calculator. Do the truck you're driving it takes fifteen, hundred, fourteen, hundred dollars a month to replace it. Okay because a stupid things going down in value more than you're paying a month, not counting the maintenance in the insurance. And the same for her now. The question is. Can you afford? Are you? Are you biting off too big a bite of the apple here is your household income, support these payments but the bottom line is if you if they support these payments and you were to buy this vehicle, you're going to have three ex in the vehicle what you're paying. Okay so it's a great deal. Do as many as you need to do as long as you can handle the cash flow out of their income, which is unbelievable. So would a situation like this? Dave, if you were to leave the company, you're just turning in the vehicle. Yeah you lost it. You lost your employee benefits. You lost it. Okay. And you and you do need to flip it every year because they're they're flipping these things out that you know it's a small percentage of their total production under the employees right but the Nissan plan is very similar. Right down here, the road from us the the Ford is very similar. I've seen those and BMW's and other one's got. They've got one that's pretty similar to the guys over in south, Carolina that listen to us over there at the beamer plant It's got the same option and driving a stink in beamer for a third a fourth of what it would cost you. Anyone else. To buy it outside of that employees listen everybody out there that's listening real quick. We're talking about an employee benefit program not nataly idolise yeah, I. Don't don't don't blow up men box with this It's an employee benefit plan, which is why people were able to do that. So it's part of their recruiting. It's part of the benefits that they're given to their team members. So just wanted to clarify that. Yeah. In his case on that layer worth hit the employee benefit. The value to him is around a thousand dollars a month because it'd be fifteen hundred to replace what he's doing for five hundred. Oh. Yeah. His truck payment. Yeah Without A. That's another twelve thousand dollars a year in income are effectively his benny package is adding. Another two thousand dollars a year to his value again, assuming you can support that level of truck with your income. We not ask Denka I got sidetracked on that. But as Chris said, it's very, very, very smart to say. out loud. We are not saying it's okay at least a car this is not leasing a carton. This renting from your employee employer has a benefit that's all as they call it a one year lease, but you can turn it anytime. You want I don't even hold you to that on this. Very, very good.
Stormi's $12K Backpack
"Is Welcome You. Guys. Rusted Babysitters and all Cable Television don't you love it Hi Nina High Hunter Oh that was weird. That was I was like your lame aunt that was like how exciting but anyway. Yes and becoming more on cool as the days go by. Pregnant. You're become yes. You're gasohol humor. Yes have. To get done real quick after speaking of kids remember your first day of school waking up bright and early and your parents. Mansion Yup. Not me either. Next year MOMS fleet of luxury cars and flaunting your twelve thousand dollar. Backpack. Oh, it is a tough light but stormy staying positive. That backpack. Let me tell you that's a waiting list for that bag I mean I just I don't understand is like that's going to be ruined in two seconds no juice box right on. The amount of times. I realized my lunch. -able had like exploded in my backpack and there was like butterfinger smeared all over the place. It's like it's just what happens to a kid when they're in kindergarten elementary school it's inevitable. We know twelve thousand isn't a lot to Kylie into travis, but it just seems like get the baby at target back like this is going to end up destroy I just don't get it. I. Hope I never do. Honestly, I don't even think twelve is that number for that because I thought there was spotting on that to them might be lizard. I think is worth worth more than it's worth more than the twelve grand I think. But Yeah, you know what? Maybe she just put it on for her to jump up and down, and then she took it off and we went safe back into her closet. But either way I can't handle stormy. She is the cutest little thing in the entire world. It's hard for me to look at her with her little sneakers. So hopefully, Mike, it's not to that cute I'm so anyway whatever maybe she earned the. Bag So we don't know they were saying that you know she was just get back maybe she washed like Kylie's car four thousand times or something you know like she earned it true. Okay. If Tuesday's presidential debate didn't get fired up about maybe thirst traps from stormies mom well, Kylie posted these two bikini shots captioned. Are you registered to vote? They were so good and it worked the post led to forty eight, thousand new voter registrations and a fifteen hundred percent surge in traffic to vote dot org. This is. Impressive this is when the joke's on all of us because good from her right she's using her body and her fame for good and she did it. You know look there were a lot of people who criticized her for this post but you know look I don't care if you on this thing but make it gets people to vote you. You have to meet people where they are not everybody is going to respond to a pick of super hyper political goals vote. Add on instagram posts not everybody's listening to that. So you sometimes you gotta meet people where they are. We saw the stripper at we saw you know Bikini ads. So people are doing things in bars like everybody's doing different things you know it's Showing that it's working, I will now be voting if that is any consolation. Four Kylie. Wins. This election I think if Kylie really wanted to help, she would go ahead and you know say proof of registration you guys get my first nude ever and this is just an idea what she was. Saying I care a lot about the election, right? Okay good. It is official. Nikki Manashe is a mother We're told she and her husband Kenneth Welcome baby yesterday in Los Angeles and Nina I know you are excited and I'm excited as well because the baby is a libra. leaper. We Love Lebron is lovely bras. Okay, but let me ask you is do we think that Nicki Menaj is GonNa be changing diapers and wiping baby or no? Yes. She is. Yeah. Listen Nikki has talked for a long time about wanting to be a mother. She's made that no secret you. She's finally married and pregnant the things that you really want it and I think she'll be in there doing everything any regular mother would do I just think it's interesting for that baby because like growing up I think we all know are moms have like a couple of different personalities like when you're a good kid, there's one personality and when you up, there's another personality Nikki's kid has to worry about like fifteen personalities from depending on what the vibe is that. Voices thrilled because the point I think she's going to get in there and Nikki also seemed to type that doesn't want people in her space having nightmares having a nanny like that's very invasive. So I think she's going to be cleaning up all the fluids
Market Update with Alex Saunders, Nuggets News
"We just recently had bitcoin cross twelve, thousand dollars it ran up you know to to grand over the course of a weekend pretty much. While big money was asleep in, you know out on their yachts. And then it came crashing back fourteen hundred dollars in five minutes who's responsible for these kinds of moves behind the scenes you've been around forever. Can you give us any kind of insight into why bitcoin can be you know more exciting than ever pay pals on board US banks have been cleared to get on board why would there be a fourteen hundred dollar price crash in five minutes? So. As you say up in which the charts like daily, since two, thousand, twelve and. Becomes always been volatile because it it's hard to like get specific value and it's always despite some sentiment narratives. But now we've got these hundred x leverage which dominates trading in markets in volume and a lot of other things are getting their prospect. David from from mix in the lock. So I really try to particularly begin did not even look at that price m a lot of people always say that and not to worry about it but honestly that number on the screen now that we're getting from these hundred exchanges is just not relative. So if you arrive with negotiating OTC you, as you say, we'd probably be negotiating around eleven thousand dollars somewhere in the middle, but we're not wired about the day-to-day process if I'm going to buy million dollars of becoming a few on the weekend and it feels funny. Way Not rookie out Monday in on paying twenty percent less negotiating on seven I average price or something like that and that's why people really need to think about it because these big wild and try it is that you know the K levels that everybody's watching they know everyone stops even some of the exchanges that had against their own customers or whatever. So they can push the crossed this level of volume in liquidities inner on weekends where we've seen a lot of this stuff. You low time it gets pushed up on the weekend, and then he gets sort of smashed back down by Monday morning and it's just these guys. They can push markets around. So Tokyo don't worry about it too much. Yeah outlets, good advice and I think these derivatives exchanges is probably the biggest difference between this bull run and the last one. In fact, the very end of the two thousand seventeen bull run is when bitcoin was launched on Sami futures and bit. Mex- came to live like the literally the day of that was the top of the market. So with these with the huge money being able to make profit in both directions and manipulate things almost in three. D.. As opposed to two D now is holding dead or is that still going to be a profitable strategy for people that are just trying to get into crypto? Absolutely holding is still the most profitable strategy in Atto Ole as I really think you should just be dollar cost averaging into to join the May I'm a huge belaboring Theorem as well, but I guess that's up to you whatever ye locked. But over time these markets growing to an enormous market cap and when you zoom out, it's almost slightly SOCK on as low shots that we look at because of the exponential growth and people just. Tied down in the Diet a diet. All should aboard here or crippled he. Never, GonNa beat the bottom never gonna peak the top and you're getting get shaken outy few wiles. Enjoy the ride, use it to your advantage. You know set some low beads exchange, review the computer. When we have these thousand crash, you know just by a little bit extra from adult cost averaging stack because over time the wires cannot manipulate the process. It's it's going up into the rot as long as we continue to grow, which is going to grow into the trillions of dollars among cap for Bitcoin for these other leading particles. So use that. To your advantage Derby August football, even nowadays fustrating. one-sided caught a thought that we've got to leverage bitcoin people. I'm going to speculate outside D two, thousand, seventeen. That's something that was seeking is GonNa play out but then we saw excited like FDA at high leverage on these outs. So it was like a guy will allow people to. Try to outs on one hundred times leverage will I guess of course, the gravy and you might afford you in Allah and that sort of Chinese and now it's like twenty seventeen on steroids I think he's really going on honestly think that we're about to say all the robinhood tried his diabetes detritus. Most. Countries than we sold, the nasdaq-listed Company mockery strategy put money to bitcoin notes. It's to be I and now wants to be lost. We've seen that now with legendary invest poultry to giants I think we're GONNA say we'd State actors like governments or Central Bank somebody's going to be first and then that he's GonNa, stop the peaceful run lost

We host David Stein today's episode three, fourteen it's titled Don't have a lost decade. Recently, got an email from a new plus member. He says he's treating the material on the website like an online college course but he had a question he wrote that he's approaching a crossroad in his life and he would like to prepare himself for that crossroad. He works at one of the Best Public Gardens in us as a horticulturalist he's been there three years makes forty three thousand dollars per year has four weeks of vacation full healthcare and Hsa they have a four zero three. B. Defined contribution plan where he gets a six percent match his boss enjoy working with him and he enjoys his job. This member also has his own business, a lifestyle business providing premium horticulture services for high end properties. He started in two thousand nineteen gross four thousand dollars and anticipate grossing twelve thousand dollars this year he has no debt. The only thing he owns he says, that is worth. Any money is an old pickup truck that's worth about three thousand. Is roughly eighteen thousand, five hundred dollars in his defined contribution plan and using the online tools on money for the rest of US plus. That, he's on track to retire in his early sixties. y'All says about two thousand dollars in a savings account pays two percent and about fifteen hundred dollars in a wealth front Robo Advisor. Account. He's living on about eighteen to twenty thousand dollars a year. After contributing to is defined contribution plan and health savings account, he brings home about twenty, eight, thousand dollars but that doesn't include is overtime bonuses or the work in his business. After taxes and contribution he estimates that he's bringing home about thirty, five, thousand dollars with everything, which means potentially he could save fifteen to seventeen thousand dollars per year and certainly ten thousand dollars per year.

It has been a great space for me to learn and have done a lot of just that but it ultimately is a glorified landscaping business. What they really want to own is a retail nursery that one day will become an event, an education centre as well. I turned thirty two months. I thought at this point I would go beyond an entry level position. I thought I would own my own house and maybe own a business full-time. Those goals seem so far away.

There are a lot of people that would be very envious that he has his amazing job working in horticulture and one where he can listen to a lot of podcast which he does. In order to answer question I want to compare to couples I know I've known for about a decade. This particular members approaching thirty. He's looking out over the next decade. What has to happen so that he doesn't have a lost decade and can reach goals I'm positive he can reach his goals.
Hi-Performance Heritage - The Ramchargers
"This week's project car of the week is one of my favorite cars that I've come across recently, and it was posted on the one hundred facebook page on Tuesday. August eleventh at twelve pm it pretty much checks all the boxes for what I think is great in a project car. So let's not beat around the bush. Let's read the AD. Nineteen Sixty Eight Dodge coronet superbeet twelve thousand five hundred dollars, Omaha Nebraska. West Virginia car original numbers matching three, eighty three or four speed tags still intact on transmission rear end and carburetor includes vendor tag and bill. She cleaned Nebraska title needs complete restoration does not run, but motor spins free folks. What we have right here is the quintessential ratty mobile muscle car a nineteen, sixty eight super be the first year for Dodge Budget Street brawler aimed at the youth enthusiast market during the rise of the muscle car era and the answer to Plymouth. Road runner folks, I love Super Bees and I really WanNa have one in my collection someday. I've actually thought about not even getting a new challenger and just finding an old super be that I could build a modernized A. Twelve with modern Hammy in a six pack Efi setup just because the idea that car sounds really cool to me. But of course, this is a nineteen, sixty eight so while it wouldn't necessarily make a good h well, tribute car, it would still make one hell of a cool ratty Mo- par with a modern power plant but I digress this be would be an awesome project car for someone or heck you know get it running and drive the wheels off of this car has perfect sunburned Patina and I'm not sure why but faded bumble bee stripes awesome on these old ratty Radebe's, and they really kick up the cool factor on these ratty mopeds for me especially with the super vs because. In my opinion and has one of the greatest graphic patches of all time on the rear tail end of it. It's got the Bumblebee Stripe and it's got the circle this a superbeing it's got the super be in it. I. Just think it's really cool. But this car is numbers matching, which is amazing and even more amazing is that this thing still has the tags on the Trans rear end and carb not to mention that even has the fender tags still attached and. You know. The picture of this thing shows under the seat is an amazingly, well preserved build sheet, which is really really cool. I, mean what's not to like about this thing? It even has a clean title for God sakes the engine isn't stuck, which is good but it doesn't run, which means it doesn't drive but you know what I like about that the low price of twelve thousand dollars you know twelve, thousand, five hundred were being specific but let's be real as long as the engine ain't stuck. You know as well as I do that the odds of getting this old Mo- par fired up are definitely in our favor. And Hey did I mention this four speed man I'm about to liquidate all of my Mo- pars and head out to Nebraska and get this thing if it hasn't already sold by the time, this episode airs you know what I mean. But of course, kidding but nobody wants to buy my junk on. There's cool cars out there like this that still need to be saved but this car you know it does need work all over the place. The interior exterior under the hood, the suspension, and I'm sure it's all pretty extensive work but the car is complete and you know that alone makes it a great project in my opinion because it's hard enough to find numbers matching project car let alone project super be that has a lot of the necessary things for documentation for nearly ten thousand dollars. You know what? I mean this twelve five that's not bad. That's not a far stretch from ten. You know I've seen projects, superbeets and CORONET RT's and chargers you know. Closer to twenty thousand or even in some cases over twenty thousand well over twenty thousand. So for twelve, thousand, five, hundred, I'm not complaining. But of course, I'd like to get it for ten grand but you know me, I'm a low baller but I think you'd be really hard pressed to find something equivalent in the market right now for around the same price for a car that's complete like this. But if there are any out there that you Nov, let me know because I'd love to check them out feature right here project the week you know folks. Told thousand five hundred dollars in my opinion this is a great by for a really cool car. This is one of those instances where once again I'm a day late in about twelve thousand, four, hundred, ninety, nine dollars short because I would love to have this car and I would absolutely pay single penny. The seller wants for this thing without thinking twice and you may be out there thinking you know. Chris you're crazy. But Hey, I'm well aware of just how crazy I am any penny less than the asking price for this be is just steel in my book but in all seriousness I hope someone out there listening to this you know jumps on the Mo- part facebook page finds the car and makes a deal on it to save it.

New York AG files lawsuit to dissolve NRA for "fraud and abuse"
"Here's the specs. The yacht is called illusions at first was I thought it was called the illusion or illusions. It's just called illusions talking heads. It's one hundred and eight feet long. It has a false staff also chef. It has four state rooms I think stay room in this context means bedroom. But I'm not sure whatever they are. Whatever state rooms are illusions has four of them. Illusions is a big enough boat that it comes with other boats and vehicles that ride on top of it. It comes with two jet skis and sixteen foot long jetboat. It's boat that comes with the boat. I do not know my way around a yacht. I do own a row boat but I don't know anything about you. Know the makings of a good state room if I laid down in one for a nautical nap. But I'll tell you for news purposes. You should know that boats that make the news they tend to have a paper trail online, and so I think this might be the boat in question. This might be illusions when you google illusions yacht at least this is the bad boy that pops up and it does have the the hike embedded jet skis and the vote and the fancy bedrooms and all the rest of it. The reason I went on a very pleasurable Internet. Deep dive for this today. Is that some good ship illusions some yacht of that name. has now been cited as evidence in a long long long long list of allegations of fraud and multimillion dollar self-dealing at the NRA at the national, Rifle Association in a lawsuit that was filed today by New York Attorney. General Letitia James The NRA as an organization is chartered in New York. It has been chartered in New York for well over one hundred years. As a New York institution as a New York charitable institution, it has to follow the rules and laws for nonprofits operating in New York. And according to the Attorney General's lawsuit, the longtime president of the NRA Wayne Lapierre often stayed on the illusions yacht without paying for it. Those trips were present from one of the NRA's vendors with Mr Lapierre getting the US you know the chef and the jet skis and presumably all four state rooms for free. What he didn't do was disclose his acceptance of what The New York ag alleges was this very, very expensive gift on the NRA's financial disclosures in that is something that is required by New York state. Law. From the lawsuit quote Mr Peres testimony to the attorney general he said that the reason he failed to disclose the use of the was for security reasons and because he considered the to have been used for legitimate. A legitimate business per best. But wait there's more according to the New York Attorney General Wayne Lapierre spent five hundred thousand dollars of the NRA's money. That's NRA donors right are members providing money to the NRA for its purpose is a nonprofit instead. Up here is taking a half million dollars of that money to spend specifically on private airplane flights to the Bahamas and back for his family at least eight times over just the last three years. The Attorney General says he spent more than thirteen million dollars of the NRA's money on a private travel consultant arranging additional private flights in luxury cars for him and his family. Over the last six years there was also at least one African Safari for Wayne Lapierre and his wife which the says they improperly accepted from another NRA vendor. The AG. Ticks off lots of fancy Christmas gifts for law peers, friends, and family and golf club membership fees and a twelve thousand dollars hotel bill at the four seasons not for weighing up here but for his niece. Over the course of four years, the lawsuit alleges that Wayne Lapierre was reimbursed for more than a million dollars worth of personal expenses straight out of the NRA's coffers. So. Your uncle with the NRA sticker on the back of his pickup. decided to put up there because it shows that he's an NRA member do-or-die he's been dutifully giving them their money. He's been like putting. Lapierre's niece up in the four seasons and flying Wayne in his family back and forth at the Bahamas. That membership money's been going to. The lawsuit filed today is over one hundred, fifty pages. The New York Attorney General Letitia James sets out in fairly stunning detail her case for how the president of the NRA and several of his top lieutenants drained more than sixty four, million dollars out of the NRA for their own personal gain over a very short period of time just over a period of a few years.

"You during the I usually quickly Fauria so I am just graduated from college this past may and I have a twelve V. eleven twelve thousand dollars in student loans on a family member has gifted me over the years stock that accumulates up to about eighteen to twenty thousand just depend on the fact trace my question for you is should I use that angle and knocked out my student better or see the call me and I'm getting married next spring and I could be there and then eventually use that as a down payment on a house within a year to it being married well we teach people the data points that we have learned and that is the shortest distance between where you are and becoming wealthy is to become and stay that free I would never borrow money on a student loan to buy stock and in a sense I know that isn't what happened but in a sense it's the same thing because every day that you don't use the stock to pay off the student loan it's mathematically is if you borrowed money on the student loan to buy stock does that make sense yeah I can kind of see a point there yeah and so what do you make a year on some actually in the transition getting a new job potentially where my it would be right short of forty year cool and so what I would tell you to do is to become debt free and use the balance of that money to build your emergency fund of three to six months of expenses and then at that point if you wanted to not start investing yet and instead start piling up money for the wedding the marriage and the down payment on the house and spend the next year doing that very aggressively with a budget where you're living on a plan where their money's being very intentional then that's gonna be okay now if you do not follow through if you do not live on a plan if you do not live on a budget and make your money behave if you do not later start investing if you don't save some money instead you spend all your money goofing off of the next year and you come into this marriage completely broke with no down payment for a house and now your wedding is a new debt and all of those kinds of things then my advice was bad but my advice presupposes that you're going to be wise and intentional with money from this day forward yes there are plans have been using every dollar for about four months now Hey there you go that's exactly what I'm talking about perfect yeah so you're making your money behave already is it's very enlightening and shows you what what's happening with your life doesn't it yes it does yeah very cool yes I would bar I would cash in the stock and finish up through baby steps for that sure only dead as a student loan debt yes Sir perfect no card at the card that and as far as I understand sh coming out of school with that free as well amazing okay well if she's your fiancee then you need to have deeper discussions about that to be very sure so that everyone knows where everyone is and by the way you can tell her you have a fully funded emergency fund and your debt free and are now then the person who gave you this gift the grandfather the uncle or the ant or whoever it was that gave you the stock gift all those years ago you have honored them by using it wisely to build wealth the fastest does that make sense yes Sir get after it man you're on the right track James is with us in Omaha Nebraska hi James welcome of the Dave Ramsey show hi thanks for Mike take my call what's up well my wife and I are both teachers and were on that step six and we're just paying down the house we've got about thirty four thousand left on June twenty thousand dollar home way to go and thanks my question is is that word word paying that down and then contributing to our four oh three bees that are our neighbors accounts and Bob irate but our our dream is to one day retire hopefully one or fifty five or more eligible and move move someplace warm we live in Nebraska so were wondering what we should invest in that after we pay off our house too that we could pay off for a second home and possibly by it before we turn fifty five and I I would I would not by the I would not buy your retirement home until you retire okay I would just sell your house and go by you have two or three thousand by then it'll be more than ten thousand one of your your personal residence is going to be enough to buy your retirement home because you're leaving home all right yes that's the plan yeah fifty five so your house at how old are you now I just turned thirty six my wife thirty eight okay all right yeah so your plan is twenty years from now it turns out our house would be worth million dollars you just sell them in our house and move to wherever you're gonna move to him by house no I would not buy retirement home prior to that in planning for all of this but you probably do need to start doing some what we would call bridge investing back to your question and that would be what you're going to eat off of the four fifty nine and a half because you can't access traditional retirement plans before fifteen and a half and so you know you you you do want to have some other investments that you build of course when you're home is paid for you can do that a lot of different ways I have personally done only two things I'm just on mutual funds that are not in a retirement plan and I typically I do low turnover mutual funds which means they don't sell the stocks inside the mutual fund very often and so it doesn't activating taxes to amount to anything and tossed salad and so it grows without any taxes on it which is really nice and then I buy real estate residential are are not residential rental real estate some of its residential that I pay cash for in my immediate area and you might build up a portfolio of real estate the only other thing I would ask you to consider is this you are planning twenty years from now to leave an area because you don't like it the like the weather our families and stuff here okay your families are there so what would keep you there why would they not keep you there after retirement if your family is there well my my sisters moved away my parents moved both both of our parents are are still alive in in great health right now but I mean my mom's help starting to go down so being around being on the on your mapping your your parents maybe if you've got kids raising them in other grandparents is more important to you than the weather thing that makes sense yes that's logical okay it just sounded like you were waiting twenty years to live your dreams but right now you've got a different ramen you're planning your second ring I like that a smart no I would not recommend buying a retirement home prior to retirement I would just get ready to by getting your house paid for building other wealth all of that can be used to buy the next house when you take that on core staff at fifty five the question ma'am thank you for joining us let me tell you a story about two families that are very much alike in a lot of ways both families of two working parents in a couple of young kids each as they had in the struggle to make ends meet but they're starting to make headway with their budgets and smarter decisions with money their dreams and plans in the only real difference is that one family as the right amount of term.

"We have a quiz that you want to give me I do this. This is on the new tax law. And this is I already failed. Well, we know that. But here's a test for you to redeem yourself door fail, even more. So this is fort four questions. Four questions is all this was put on by go banking rates, and they they administered it to I don't know didn't even say, but like thousands of people seventy seven percent of Americans failed this short quiz. Meaning they they couldn't even get to write out of four to get to write. All right. Yes. Apparently that's their passing score fifty percents. Here's the first one. How much is the standard deduction for a single filer in two thousand nineteen how much is the standard twelve thousand dollars, sir. That's correct. Look at this percents. Well, the state of California. The fat is all fed, California. I'll fail because I think it's thirty two hundred dollars for something. It's it's a lot lower house. Just put it that way. So the the percent of people that got that question, right? Was eighteen percent though. Right. So eighty two percent missed that one. By the way, a standard deduction is deduction you get for free on your tax return. The out of all your engine to pay for other ones. Well, you do you have to pay after having expense. The Cavs got it. But yeah, I suppose. Free today only. Call right now. Call the IRS five minutes to get your three. Dutch. Say that anyway, but you do get that one regardless of anything else going on. So you make fifty thousand dollars. You get a twelve thousand dollars standard deduction, you pay tax on thirty eight thousand that that's the real now if your itemized deductions are higher like your home mortgage and your taxes and charity, then you get to take the higher the too. So that's how that works. Here's the second one. How much is the penalty for not having health insurance in two thousand nineteen zero percent. That's correct. So that that one fifty two percent, right? Oh, so you're in good group. I wonder who they were serving just regular taxpayers taxpayer number three guarantee. You most people didn't know that fifty two percent. They don't know what the standard deduction is forcing on taxpayer. But they know that they're not going to get the ObamaCare tax. Well, they they didn't know there ever was a penalty. That's probably true digital fifty fifty. No. Right. Okay. How many different tax brackets are there for tax filers in two thousand nineteen how many tax brackets tax brackets? That's the same as there was in two thousand eighteen and twenty eighteen we had a let's see we got ten fifteen twenty five twenty eight thirty three thirty five thirty nine point six at seven twenty nine thousand nine hundred. It's ten twelve twenty two twenty four thirty to thirty five or thirty seven. That's a accurate, although you said two thousand eighteen two thousand eighteen had the same as people. You bet would you did your tax return and twenty eight team for twenty seventy. Yes, I agree with that. Okay. Okay. Can with this. So that's pretty good seven. You know, how many ten percent got that? Right. Yeah. They thought it was simpler, lower their flat rate differentiates less rates. Okay. Number four is how many people do you think can name the rates at the top of their head NAN? And this is a related question, which I know you already know the answer is already set it. What's what's the what's the quiz on their? What's the tax rate for the highest tax bracket in two thousand eighteen what's the thirty seven. Yeah. Exactly. Okay. Thirteen percent got that right now. So you are now certified techs expert perfect. I'm gonna start to tax returns. Yeah. What is interesting about the IRS is, you know, every every time, I guess this year and approaches and there tends to be changes in the tax laws that happened towards year end. And so usually the IRS is scrambling to to adjust all the forms and get everything ready for tax season this year because the government shutdown they they went they they have they normally have about eighty five thousand employees, they only had about nine thousand actually working eight or nine thousand actually working so they got way behind, but they're saying that everything is is they're going to try to function as as well as they can they're already setting returns, they're already putting out refunds and a lot of the refunds Joe so far have been lower this year than the year before. Yeah. I could see why. Because they they changed their withholdings throughout the year. And that's what people don't understand is the tax rates for I would say the majority not all, but the majority of people actually went down. So that your tax Bill went down, but she had less withheld from your pay. So you got a higher paycheck. And now what happened is is now that there was a lot less withheld. And so now people are in some cases, they thought they were going to give a thousand dollar refund. They're getting a four hundred dollar refund or six hundred dollars in some cases, there they can they get a little refund. They're going so people are very emotionally attached to that refund. Yeah. Exactly. And refund is not necessarily good thing. Because in life L, we make choices and with choices come consequences. So if you want a little bit extra cash flow in your monthly. Income, you know. You love that. But then you're going to get a lower refund. Take the stairs. Or you could ride the elevator. You know, that's that's a choice. So you can make you eat an apple he can have a candy bar. Tricky diet coke or a glass of water? Yep. I got water. You got to. Manage energy. And I usually booze in you, evergreen, juice. You could go to the doctor or you can ignore the system since this is like Elena. The planning for retirement is no different. You have a choice you can create a plan or you can hope for the best in either way, there will be consequences. But having no plan is almost destined to have a very very bad envy. If you save for retirement good for you. But now what what about social security what about reducing your taxes guarding against inflation generating income in?.

So it's about seven thousand seven hundred I think freezing so plus medications, and then which could be up to up to certain amount. But again, I mean don't think the worst always think the best and the next is the process clash, so I'm honestly, really bad at this. But I'm going to try IVF usually starts at around twelve thousand dollars. But with IVF there's a lot of things that we recommend. So if you just want to do the F around twelve thousand we highly recommend that the interests of plasma sperm injection for anyone who hang up pregnant before anyone that sperm is an ideal. That's when you put the sperm under a microscope, and you pick excess sperm exactly then it's we inject the sperm, and I think that's like a thousand thousand and then once we put the embryos together, and they're growing we like to do a little on day three of growth, a little little bump on the outside of the which would make crack it's called assisted hatching that helps the. Reopen up easier. I think that's about five hundred dollars. And then we let the embryo grow today. Five six seven where we do the biopsy on embryos. Now the biopsy and genetic testing on embryos is expensive the we do not do an it's a very technically complicated and difficult process in the lab and only our most advanced embryologist are the ones that are doing that. But the biopsy and genetic testing I think comes out to something around five thousand dollars again, not so positive these numbers. I wish I would have. The rough by looking at around probably around twenty thousand for an ideal cycle. But what's important about what he said to the genetic testing is if we look at that. Sorry. That's okay. If you look at it. I think so many other facility clinics are implanting two eggs or you're going through multiple rounds. Not testing eggs truth is van had genetic testing found out that it wasn't a viable embryo. Anyway, doctors who aren't looking at that or patients who decide not to do the testing when they implant you're taking a risk. You don't know if your body's going to accept or reject I had a patient that just recently came to me, and she said the doctor only genetic testing onto embryos, not the other two, and I said why she said because they have a twenty eight percent chance of destruction of destroying the embryo by doing genetic testing. So I said they obviously do not know how to. Turkey based. I'm not sure what they're doing. But a lot of clinics that are not that good at doing the biopsy. So they're scared to do it. And I'm sorry SERC's motto is to genetically test a lot of MB because we've had such phenomenal situations of older women that were able to just make one genetically normal embryo out of chunk of them..
