Mummies, pineapples, and board games (Joe's favorite!). What do these all have in common? They've all been seen as status symbols at some point in time. Today's status symbols might be fancy strollers, nice cars, or how many followers you have on Instagram. We see these everywhere and it's hard to ignore and not spend money on the same things. Our roundtable today discusses a piece about strange status symbols throughout time and how status symbols in general influence our spending. Paul Ollinger (Crazy Money podcast), Paula Pant (Afford Anything), and Len Penzo (Len Penzo dot Com) join our roundtable to talk about status symbols they've noticed and the impacts on our finances and life. Enjoy!

In this episode I reflect on and discuss Oct 21, 1969, the day the Somali nation was changed forever. Its been over 50 years since Barre took up power but the way he shaped Somali nationalism, community and identity has altered us forever. This episode is titled "Ubaxii Kacaanka 50 years later" as a way to make sense of how the young kids who were raised on his ideologies are now mature adults who are identifying themselves in a way that works for them. Your childhood does not have to circumscribe your life unless you allow It to. Learning and unlearning social norms that allow you to become a healthier and whole human being is what the life thing is about and I believe cultural identity can also work the same way. This episode also reflects on what art, identity and cultural diplomacy looked like during this time. In this episode I referenced: The Cost of Dictatorship by Jama Ghalib Sharks and Soldiers by Ahmed Omar Askar The Orchard of Lost Souls by Nadifa Mohamed Hadraawi's "Hal la Qalay" https://www.poetrytranslation.org/poems/the-killing-of-the-she-camel
On today's show we're talking about the transition from rural to suburban. We have several projects underway that are making that transition from agricultural land into urban subdivisions. When we think of suburban streets, we often think of tree lined streets with curbs and sidewalks. What we don't see all the utilities that are buried beneath the ground, each with their own infrastructure. The planning process requires careful attention to each of these. Because they're hidden, they're largely taken for granted by the public. But as a developer, each of these require careful planning. The cost of most of this infrastructure is born by the developer and usually dedicated to the city or the utility. In a rural setting, most houses are nearly off-grid. The only true requirement is for electricity. Water usually comes from a well on the property. Wastewater is treated locally using a septic system. Stormwater management relies on surface drainage and gravity. Internet relies on wireless or satellite solutions. Heating is either provided by electricity or by large cylinders of propane gas that get refilled a couple of times a year. On today's show we're going to construction a budget for the cost of servicing a typical suburban lot and compare that with the cost of a typical rural lot with well and septic instead of municipal services. So here are the 11 services that are required in almost every setting. 1) Electricity 2) Water 3) Sanitary Sewer 4) Storm water sewer 5) Optical Fiber which has largely replaced telephone 6) Cable TV 7) Natural Gas 8) Street lighting 9) Fire hydrants 10) The road 11) Sidewalks ------------------ Host: Victor Menasce email: firstname.lastname@example.org

The cost of a long-running update transaction that eventually failed in Postgres (or any other database for that matter. In Postgres, any DML transaction touching a row creates a new version of that row. if the row is referenced in indexes, those need to be updated with the new tuple id as well. There are exceptions with optimization such as heap only tuples (HOT) where the index doesn't need to be updated but that doesn't always happens. If the transaction rolls back, then the new row versions created by this transaction (millions in my case) are now invalid and should NOT be read by any new transaction. You have two solutions to address this, do you clean all dead rows eagerly on transaction rollback? Or do you do it lazily as a post process? Postgres does the lazy approach, a command called vacuum which is called periodically Postgres attempts to remove those dead rows and free up space in the page. Whats the harm of leaving those dead rows in? Its not really correctness issues at all, in fact transactions know not to read those dead rows by checking the state of the transaction that created them. This is however expensive, the check to see of the transaction that created this row is committed or rolled-back. Also the fact that those dead rows live in disk pages with alive rows makes an IO not efficient as the database has to filter out dead rows. For example, a page may have contained 1000 rows, but only 1 live row and 999 dead rows, the database will make that IO but only will get a single row of it. Repeat that and you end up making more IOs. More IOs = slower performance. Other databases do the eager approach and won't let you even start the database before rolling back is successfully complete, using undo logs. Which one is right and which one is wrong? Here is the fun part! Nothing is wrong or right, its all decisions that we engineers make. Its all fundamentals. Its up to you to understand and pick. Anything can work. You can make anything work if you know what you are dealing with.

Bungie can't seem to get out of its own way of late when it comes to marketing the many (many!) different ways they seek to monetize their ardent Destiny fanbase. The latest foot fault comes in the form of a reddit communication explaining the ins and outs of accessing "dungeons" in the latest expansion to the game -- or trying to anyway. Is this simply a matter of confusion and communication? A greedy attempt to "tax" anything and everything (including your lack of faith)? Or something else?

Today's topic is something people make, save, change, and raise. So what is it? Money. Money is a big topic, as there is so much that goes into how we earn money, whether we seek money, our attitudes around money, and more. So much of our lives revolve around money. And blocks around money can be one of the biggest hurdles for many people to get over because we have so many stories and beliefs around money that have been taught to us throughout our lives, many of them that we don't even realize we have. If you think you don't have blocks around money, you might want to reconsider. We all have “stuff” around money, it just may be at different levels and show up differently for different people. And many people think that simply knowing about their money beliefs is enough. It's not, though, and this week Nicole is sharing with us a story about how she nearly lost $15,000 due to a money belief she had thought she'd cleared. She's telling us how it came up for her, how she was able to identify it, and how she was able to work through it. If you're struggling with your own money stuff, Nicole is hosting a 1-day virtual event on October 27th called Ditch Your Money $hit.

Have you ever had a potential customer struggle with the COST of your products? And then you begin worrying about asking people to buy because of the money they would need to spend, especially now that people are just starting to recover financially from the pandemic? Here's the main reason WHY you're worried -- YOU are focused on the PRICE. The secret to getting customers does NOT rely on price. What really matters is the perceived VALUE. When your customer begin seeing your products as a solution to their problems instead of just a replaceable product, the price becomes completely irrelevant to their decision to purchase. In this episode, I'll share with you how you can create immense value in what you're offering so that the cost of your product becomes irrelevant to all of your prospective customers!

The Virginia Department of Health reports 1,617 new cases today, and the seven-day average for new cases has dropped to 1,983. On October 1, those numbers were 2,552 and 2,780 respectively. Since October 1, there have been 732 deaths reported. The percent positivity has dropped to 6.8 percent, down from 9.1 on September 30. In the Blue Ridge Health District, there are 66 new cases reported today, This afternoon, the district announced changes to COVID tests they offer. Specifically, you can now register for a PCR test on the BRHD website. Antibody tests are not available for this service, which takes place at various places. (link)*The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality has announced $10 million in grant funding for school systems to use to purchase replacements for diesel school buses. The money comes from Virginia’s share of the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust, a result of that company’s lying about the emissions ratings of their vehicles. In August, the DEQ announced the award of $10 million to 19 school districts, allowing for the replacement of 83 buses including two in Albemarle.This time around, localities can apply for either $300,000 for each electric bus and its charging infrastructure, as well as $15,000 for every propane bus. DEQ will hold webinars on October 26 and November 4. Applications are due February 1. Campaign finance reports for SeptemberThe latest deadline for campaign finance reports from candidates in Virginia were due Friday, and the results are in. None of Albemarle County’s three candidates for three seats the Board of Supervisors raised no funds between September 1 and September 30. All three races are uncontested, including newcomer Jim Andrews for the Samuel Miller District. The two Democrats in the Charlottesville continued to raise funds. According to data pulled together by the Virginia Public Access Project, Brian Pinkston raised an additional $20,589 in September with 26 contributions of over $100 including $2,500 from the Realtors Political Action Committee of Virginia.

(details on VPAP)Independent Yas Washington raised $100, spent $100, and ended the month with no money on hand.

Go learn about this place today!Charlottesville City Council held a work session yesterday on how to cover the costs of sidewalk improvements for Stribling Avenue to support a 170 unit development on about 12 acres of undeveloped land. James Freas is the director of the city’s Neighborhood Development Services department. “So, as many as you know, there’s a [Planned Unit Development] proposed for 240 Stribling Avenue,” Freas said. “The proposed project includes a mix of apartments, townhouses, two-family units.”Freas said Southern Development will proffer 15 percent of the units to be affordable or for-sale to 60 percent of the area median income. That means rent or the mortgage would be capped at 30 percent of those household’s monthly budget. “A critical issue and consideration of whether to rezone this property or not is the status of the sidewalk of Stribling Avenue itself,” Freas said. “Stribling Avenue does not currently have any sidewalks on it. It sees a fair amount of traffic and is a relatively narrow street as it exists today.”Southern Development has also offered to pay up to $2 million to cover the costs of building the sidewalk and worked with the economic development office to come up with an agreement on how to be paid back through using the incremental tax revenue that would be generated by the increased value of the property after development. In September, city engineer Jack Dawson said the cost estimate would be slightly higher. The work session was intended to provide an analysis of the estimate, but not a finalized estimate for many reasons. (Dawson’s analysis)“This has not gone through community engagement and stakeholder meetings which can add significantly to a project as you may be aware,” Dawson said. “And then projects of this type are not insignificant undertakings nor are they cookie cutter in design typology or execution. A sidewalk is not just a sidewalk.”Dawson described how additional right of way would need to be purchased by the city, how the drainage system would need to be built, and how many on-street parking spaces and trees would need to be removed. All of that adds up. “The original cost amount was $1.2 million with a 25 percent contingency of $1.5 million,” Dawson said. “And then after I did the analysis, I adjusted all of those things and it went to $2.4 million almost with a 20 percent contingency bringing it to $2.8 million.”The scope of the project does not include upgrades to Stribling’s intersection with Jefferson Park Avenue Extended. Upgrading the pedestrian crossing there would be a separate project that Dawson said is being undertaken by the city using existing funds. Vice Mayor Sena Magill asked if Stribling could be turned into a one-way road that would connect back to Fontaine Avenue along land in Albemarle County. Dawson said that would be tough and expensive. Outgoing City Manager Chip Boyles did not attend the virtual Council meeting, so it was up to Deputy City Manager Sam Sanders to sum up the button line.“Where we are is that we’re looking at the moment an $850,000 gap based on what the proffer that we have received is and what we have come up with our estimate,” Sanders said. “We have 170 units that are being proposed by the developer with 15 percent, so 25 units being offered up for rental for 10 years and ownership for 30 years at 60 percent of AMI.”Sanders asked Council if that investment would be worth it to achieve that level of affordability.“Because of the stresses that we face with the decisions that we have to make regarding schools and all of the various priorities that we have, that’s a tall order of coming up with that $850,000,” Sanders said. Councilor Michael Payne was not sure the return on investment was worth it. “It seems realistically like that $850,000 just is not really feasible in terms of being ahead of other priorities,” Payne said. Payne said investing in Piedmont Housing and other entities would be a better use of funds. Councilor Lloyd Snook said he favored the use of incremental tax financing for projects, but also said the $850,000 was too much for the city to cover at this time. The rezoning application will return to the Planning Commission at a later date. Special announcement! Today’s the third day of a new promo with Ting! Are you interested in fast internet?

Wind turbines keep getting bigger and bigger. The reason is that the power a wind turbine can theoretically generate is proportional to the disk-shaped area swept out by its blades. So, the bigger the blades, the more power can be produced by a single turbine. That being said, real-world turbines don't achieve their theoretical power […]

The great resignation is being attributed to the pandemic, but we know that some of you are quitting because you've had enough of your boss. Bad bosses are expensive — and not just because turnover costs money. There are hidden prices to pay when a manager is ineffective or downright damaging. Washington Post columnist Michelle Singletary suggests that part of the popularity of Ted Lasso is that he's everyone's dream boss. Michelle joins host Angela Davis to talk about the high cost of a bad boss for everyone who has to deal with the offender. And our regular Monday guest, Chris Farrell, helps us understand how bad bosses affect the national and even the global economy, plus Le Betty Zhou from the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota weighs in on self-regulation at work. Guests: Chris Farrell is senior economics contributor at MPR News Michelle Singletary is a personal finance columnist at The Washington Post (and a member of Angela's on-air squad) Le Betty Zhou is an associate professor in the Department of Work and Organizations at the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota Subscribe to the MPR News with Angela Davis podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify or RSS.
