Climate change. Health care. Education. Debt. These are just a few of the issues being debated today in the halls of power. The results of these debates will have profound consequences for all of us, but perhaps no group will be more affected than the young. With such a clear stake in the outcome, it might be surprising to learn that as a group, young people are less likely to vote and serve in public offices than older generations. In this podcast, Dr. Christine Huebner of Nottingham Trent University and Scott Warren, co-founder of the preeminent civics education organization Generation Citizen, met with Lauren Burke of GMF Cities to discuss why young people are less engaged in traditional politics, how they are engaging, and the perennial question of whether it is better to effect change from within or force it from the outside. This discussion was inspired by the work of the Cities Fortifying Democracy project. GMF Cities, with the support of Germany's Federal Foreign Office, is leading a two-year, transatlantic multi-city cohort to explore and advance city practices in strengthening democracy. The project, called Cities Fortifying Democracy, will examine city innovations in governing, voting & elections, public safety & justice, and local journalism.

Many public health experts, Maori organisations and iwi leaders have come out against the government's new stepped plan to move Auckland down to level 2 and pivot to a suppression strategy of Covid-19. They warn that an outbreak among under-vaccinated Maori could be catastrophic. Covid-19 vaccination uptake among Maori is currently only about two-thirds that of the general population. Co-leader of the Maori Party and leader of the Ngati Ruanui iwi, Debbie Ngarewa-Packer, spoke to Morning Report's Kim Hill.
While many different types of fitness experiences exist, Erica Pattni discovered the incredible balance of fitness and fun through her platform, ROWDY. While I've always loved how working out makes me feel since I was young, many Americans (75% to be exact) don't enjoy goal-oriented fitness as much as the industry would seem to believe. This statistic helped inform how Erica Pattni is building her brand, ROWDY. In episode 21 of Art of the App Podcast, Erica Pattni and I discuss the importance of demographic awareness and marketing strategy. Erica has spent many years in marketing from branding to market research. She was one of the first members of KIND, where she learned what it meant to roll up your sleeves and build something from the ground up. This started her passion for building brands. She created her own brand consulting business but eventually found that she was ready to create her own company, Rowdy.Some of the things Erica and I discuss: Why 75% of Americans aren't exercising the daily or weekly suggested amount, and how Rowdy aims to change that by being ‘deceptively challenging'.What makes fun fitness better than goal-oriented fitness for great, and why ROWDY will never focus on before and after pictures. How to do research to land on your brand positioning, and how Erica figured out to take KIND bars to wineries.Why your brand strategy is foundational and should be done at the start of building any company.

As of 2020, more people are dying than being born in Missouri. St. Louis University professor Ness Sandoval explains how we got here and what it will take to rebound from that decline.
Demand is going through the roof for rentals in the Tampa Bay region, and so are the rents. According to one data firm, the hot housing market and a steady stream of new residents have pushed apartment rents up 22% since the beginning of this year.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.Real estate data firm CoStar says that rents are moving higher because of an influx of new residents, and without enough rentals to meet that demand, there are no signs of a rent-growth slowdown. USF Financial Professor Lei Wedge explained the situation to local News Channel 8. (1) He listed four basic reasons that rents are moving higher so quickly. He says:1 - There are lots of people moving to Tampa every day, and when people can't afford to buy, they are “rushing into the rental market.”2 - There are more renters in the market than the supply of rentals.3 - Because “home values are going up like crazy,” investors are buying more expensive properties and charging higher rents for a certain rate of return.4 - Long-time landlords are following suit, and raising their rents to match the higher rents offered by investors.Tampa Bay Home PricesAbout a month ago, Axios wrote about Tampa Bay's hot real estate market. It says home values in this area are “rising faster than any other metro in the country” because inventory is too low to meet demand. Tampa real estate agent, Justin Ricke, told Axios that some homes are getting as many as 30 offers, and that homes are selling almost as quickly as they are listed. He says: “You can put a house on the market Thursday, and if you market it correctly, get multiple offers by Sunday, have a decision by Monday.”Axios says that closed and pending sales were down in July across a five-county Tampa Bay area, including Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas, Pasco, and Sarasota Counties. That's according to MLS data. It says if the trend were to continue it could be a sign that the market is cooling off, but the article also points out that “slowdowns are typical for this time of year.”Inventory is also a major factor. Because it is too low to meet demand, there would only be “so much cooling off of the market” as too many people go after too few homes.Tampa Bay's Median Home PriceSo what's the median price for the area? Data from Florida Realtors show the median for that five-county area is $373,000. That's up from around $308,000 in July of last year. The months supply of homes in July was only about “one month” for each of those five counties. That represents a 65% drop in inventory for Manatee and Sarasota Counties, and a 30 to 40% drop for the others.Stats show that homes went under contract in six days or less, on average, and that most single-family homes get the asking price or higher.This climb in home prices and rents is also making it difficult for many people to afford a home or a rental. Ricke says he's getting calls constantly from people looking for an affordable place to live.If you are an investor, wondering how this could play out for you, RealWealth has its own data on the market. Recent posts on the Southwest Florida market include a podcast called: “Demographics & Hot Markets with Our Florida Expert.” That's available under the Learn Tab at newsforinvestors.com.You'll also find a webinar replay on the Tampa area that you can access here as a RealWealth member through the Investor Portal.

Demographics alone would suggest Bradley County, Arkansas, should be struggling fiercely with local resistance against vaccines, just as many other counties are all across the southern U.S. Yet in July, Governor Asa Hutchinson announced that Bradley was the first county in Arkansas to inoculate at least half of its eligible population. At the time, that was more than twice the rate of several other Arkansas counties. In this bonus episode we head to Bradley County to find out what's going on. The answer provides a case study on how to combat pockets of vaccine skepticism. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Wondering where's the best place to own real estate over the next decade? Follow the demographics.When Rich and I started buying properties out of state in 2004, we chose Dallas, Texas because it was one of the fastest growing metros in the country. We paid between $120,000 to $140,000 for brand new homes in Rockwall, Texas that rented for $1,300 to $1,500 a month. Those homes have since tripled in value.Where can you find that kind of opportunity today? Stick with the same fundamentals and follow the demographics.Economists predict that Florida will add 1.4 million new residents by 2025. Developers are trying to keep up with demand, but can they build fast enough? It's pretty tough these days. As a result, both home prices and rents are on the rise.In this episode, our guest represents a trusted RealWealth property team from the Tampa area, and he's here to give us an update on what's going on in the Sunshine State.You can also take a deeper dive into the Florida market by listening to a webinar with our Florida expert.

Tim Anderson is the President of Traders Village Marketplaces, a collection of three massive, weekend flea markets in Texas. The first Traders Village flea market was founded in 1973 in Grand Prairie, Texas, near Dallas. Since then, they have expanded to two other locations in Houston and San Antonio. Traders Village flea markets aren't your typical flea markets. On average, they span 210 acres, and on a typical weekend, 6000 different dealers might be selling their goods at the three different locations. In addition, Traders Village has yummy food stalls and permanent thrill rides at each property. They also host dozens of festivals each year, ranging from food fests to car meets. Tim has years of experience within the attractions industry. He got his first job as a game operator at the now-closed Six Flags AstroWorld in Houston, Texas. He continued to work there throughout high school and college. Upon graduating college with an economics degree, he originally planned on going to law school; however, he found himself being pulled back to Six Flags. After working in management at Six Flags Great America for about five years, Tim had the opportunity to develop and open the Kellogg's Cereal City USA attraction in Battle Creek, Michigan. He loved getting to be a part of the design and opening team and stayed on as its general manager for a few years. After that, Tim became the general manager of Landry's Kemah Boardwalk off Galveston Bay. It was after that role that Tim found his way to leading Traders Village Marketplaces where he has been for the past 12 years. Traders Village sees over 6 million visitors a year, and that's just on Saturdays and Sundays when the sun is still up. When they first opened, they described themselves as the Disneyland of Flea Markets. They are known for being big, clean, exciting, and full of great finds. A survey in 2019 found that 52% of Americans had visited a flea market that year. This means that Trader Village has a very wide customer base, but their key demographic consists of lower income individuals and families as well as other value-oriented individuals. The visitors to Traders Village have thousands of different stalls to browse through, and Tim says that you can “buy anything from a ballpoint pen to a bulldozer.” The other huge demographic of Traders Village is its self-motivated, entrepreneurial dealers, or the people that rent space to sell their goods. Tim says that some of the dealers have been in constant attendance for over 45 years. He spoke fondly of how he enjoys being an incubator for small businesses. He even shared that some businesses start at the flea market before expanding to be incredibly successful chains, such as an electronics store and a furniture outlet. However, he did say that not all of the thousands of new businesses started each year make it, but he still enjoys watching many go on to be successful. Tim also discussed his leadership style. His preference is to surround himself with the best possible team and empower those team members to be autonomous and successful. He puts a lot of faith in his employees, but that has always worked well for him. He enjoys giving his managers the freedom to run their aspect of the business in their own way. In addition, he is very welcoming of new ideas and said that he is willing to try almost anything at least once. Tim admitted that new ideas can be scary but still enjoys exploring them. However, he also helps guide people to evaluate their own suggestions by helping them think through how it would be operationalized. By doing this, he enables his team to filter out some of the ideas least likely to succeed before they actually are tried, which often works better than him pointing out the flaws from the start. Furthermore, he likes it when his team makes decisions because Tim believes that even a wrong decision is sometimes more likely to move things along than choosing not to make a decision at all. Tim emphasized the importance of being able to adapt and stay ahead of challenges. Lastly, Tim always tries to exceed the expectations of his customers and his dealers. The Grand Prairie location is currently installing a roller coaster to its rides area. Tim discussed that adding bigger and better rides helps to bring a new, wider demographic to the flea markets. Additionally, the rides area can be marketed separately from the flea market and even open when the shops are closed, giving Traders Village another income stream besides renting spaces for dealers to sell. Tim talked about his experience of installing the Boardwalk Bullet roller coaster at Kemah Boardwalk. He said that adding a coaster really changes the perception of a place and takes it to a whole new level. At Kemah, adding the coaster tripled sales and brought it far more visitors compared to before the coaster was open. Tim hopes to see similar positive impacts when the former Scandia Screamer opens at Traders Village. If you'd like to learn more about Traders Village Marketplaces, you can check out their website.

If the success of educational institutions depends on a steady and predictable flow of incoming students, what does the American “birth dearth” forebode for the future of higher education? Amy and Mike invited higher ed professional Chris Lucier to explain the implications of demographic trends for college admissions. What are five things you will learn in this episode? What is the value to higher ed professionals in exploring demographic data? What do the combined data sets tell us about the next ten years in the United States? Which colleges portend to be most impacted? What should colleges be doing now to prepare for upcoming demographic shifts? What role might international applicants play in future enrollment strategies? MEET OUR GUEST Chris Lucier is the Director of Partner Relationships at Othot, leveraging over 20 years of experience in admissions and strategic enrollment management to help colleges and universities adopt data-driven decision making in addressing enrollment and student success challenges.

In this capacity, he was responsible for undergraduate admissions, the registrar's office, and student financial services. Prior to UD, he was the vice president for enrollment management at the University of Vermont, where he developed and shaped the overall enrollment strategy and implemented operational programs to recruit, admit, retain and graduate undergraduate students. In 2001, after a 21-year career as a US Army Officer, Chris started his career in higher education as Director of Recruitment & Operations in the University of Michigan Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

What's the outlook for the Australian property markets for the rest of 2021 and beyond? This is a common question people are asking now that our real estate markets are experiencing the challenges of lockdowns. However, despite a sequence of fifteen State or Territory lockdowns so far this year, property prices have been largely unscathed. And even though the rate of house price growth is slowing, property values keep rising in almost every market around the country and our capital cities are in line for strong double-digit property price growth this year. So what does an investor need to do to succeed in today's market? Some rules will be different while others will remain the same. In today's show, I'm going to chat with Brett Warren, about nine rules that you need to follow to succeed in today's property market, so welcome to today's show. Then you'll hear my mindset messages about happiness. Rules for Property Success Let's look at 9 key beliefs for property investment, no matter what point of the economic or property cycles we are in. Rule 1: Your long-term aim should be capital growth Capital growth, or capital appreciation, is simply an increase in the value of your investment over time. And this should be the ultimate goal for every property investor. Because while cash flow keeps you in the investment game, it is capital growth that gets you out of the everyday rat race. Rule 2: Demographics will drive our property markets Understanding demographics could and should be the final piece of the puzzle for you during the decision-making process. After all, we are looking for locations that can ride out a downturn and produce above-average rates of return in the good times. And Covid-19 lockdowns are accelerating this trend further as a large chunk of white-collar workers realize they can easily work remotely and neighbourhood has become more important to them than ever. Rule 3: Location, location, location Find a location where there is strong economic growth which will lead to job growth which will lead to population growth which will lead to demand for housing. Then, given the long-term trend of the rich getting richer and the widening gap between the rich and the average Australian is not going to change, you should look at wages. And you should only buy in areas where the local demographic has higher income levels so they can afford to both improve and pay more for properties. Rule 4: Remember rent affordability is linked to wages As with the above, make sure you take into account the local going rate for rent when researching an investment property. Because, as obvious as it might sound, rent affordability is linked to wages. When you eventually retire and enjoy the longest holiday of your life, your income will depend upon your tenant's ability to pay the rent. Rule 5: Focus on continued strong demand Location is one thing but buying the right type of property in the correct location is also very important. Investors should always look for a property that will be in continuous strong demand by owner-occupiers. If you can walk out of your home and you're within walking distance of, or a short trip to a great shopping strip, your favorite coffee shop, amenities, the beach, a great park, you will appreciate the benefit of the third-place – the importance of your neighborhood. Rule 6: A brand new property is like a brand new car Depending on the make and model of the car, you can lose anywhere between 10% – 15% of a new car's value disappears once you drive it off the dealership lot. And you can apply the same concept to those brand-new properties you've been looking at. So, remove the emotion of looking for something shiny and new. Rule 7: Have a financial buffer in place Always, always have a financial buffer in place to see you through the rainy days. How much you need as a buffer varies depending upon your money management skills and cash flow circumstances, but it is often wise to hold between 6 and 12 months of living expenses in an offset account. Rule 8: Be careful who you listen to Remember, as with anything, there will always be pessimists around willing to give their two cents worth of advice. And they're usually wrong. While the Property Pessimists and Negative Nellies will tell you to avoid investing in property, there will always be people who tell you to buy property, or to buy a particular type of property or in a particular area. But make sure you're wary of their hidden agenda. These people are likely to represent the seller, not you. Rule 9: Avoid negativity Similar to the above, when embarking on your property investment journey, try to avoid the negativity. Sure, the future is uncertain, Covid-19 and continued lockdowns are taking their toll on us all, closed borders are leaving many frustrated, and climbing property prices might cause a feeling of despair for some. But as the saying goes: This too shall pass. The bottom line It is always the property fundamentals that really matter. The long-term view outsmarts short-term thinking. Over the last year or two, the residential property market has shown its resilience. People will always need somewhere to live, and homes are the true “safe haven” in the current environment. It is always challenging to invest when everyone else is running around worrying about the end of the world. But you shouldn't make 30-year investment decisions based on the last 30 minutes or even the last 30 days of news Resources: Michael Yardney Brett Warren – National Director Metropole Property Strategists Get the team at Metropole to help build your personal Strategic Property Plan Click here and have a chat with us Shownotes plus more here: 9 rules for success in today's property market with Brett Warren Some of our favourite quotes from the show: “The middle class are disappearing at the moment, and there is a stark divide between rich and poor.” –Michael Yardney “We've got to understand that location is going to do the heavy lifting.” – Michael Yardney “No matter how carefully you assess every situation, we often end up in relationships that have soured, or things that once excited us become boring.” – Michael Yardney PLEASE LEAVE US A REVIEW Reviews are hugely important to me because they help new people discover this podcast.

Sam and Emma host Richard Alba, Distinguished Professor of Sociology at the Graduate Center at the City University of New York (CUNY), to discuss his recent book The Great Demographic Illusion: Majority, Minority, and the Expanding American Mainstream, on the failure of the Majority/Minority model, and the demographics are destiny approach. They start off by reflecting on how recent the belief in the power of majorities has been emphasized in social science, before Prof. Alba walks through the history of this discourse, looking back to the mid-20th-century expansion of mainstream whiteness to include Irish, Italian, and Jewish people, as well as the importance of ethno-racial mixing in blurring these boundaries. Next, he, Sam, and Emma explore how the fixed nature of demographic boundaries fails to reflect the fluidity of both identity and definition among people, as well as the influence of maintaining the racialized underclass of white supremacy has on the shifting boundaries. They also touch on the polarizing nature of Majority/Minority discourse, and its contribution to racial anxiety among white people, as well as the variety of variables that influence the influx of mixed folks in the recent census including reconfiguring the ethno-racial definition process. They wrap up the interview by touching on social policies that can help encourage assimilation towards equality, particularly focusing on economic and social inequality, and how Professor Alba would respond to those on the right that consistently push white replacement theory. Sam and Emma also touch on recent and impending SCOTUS decisions, resulting in a potential 750k household evictions over the next six months, and potentially seeing Texas overturn Roe v. Wade. And in the Fun Half: Sam finds solace and solidarity in a school board pranking, Steven Crowder has trouble connecting with a guest's story on racism, for some reason, and Carrie Prejean Boller continues her entrance onto the political stage through Fox and the far-right after her “canceling” for homophobic Miss California comments. The MR crew also discusses mask mandate prohibitions and the DOE's Civil Rights Division's plan to take them on, the Right's politicization of sports with vaccination requirements, Critical Race Theory and Tax Codes, Tucker Carlson's mommy issues, and screen time policy on both the household, and federal levels, plus, your IMs!

If a community is not safe for Black travelers, especially after dark, it's often called a "sundown town." Some of these towns are now integrating. But does that mean they're not dangerous for Black travelers anymore? Author Candacy Taylor dives into racial travel advisories. And, a recent poll from NBC has revealed that more Black communities are taking the vaccine as opposed to white and Latino people. Epidemiologist Debra Furr-Holden joins us.
Michelangelo's painting of creation on the ceiling of the Sistine chapel is genius not only for its artistic composition but its psychological insight. I take Michelangelo's insights and combine those with Nero playing his fiddle while Rome is burning. Oh, and I tell an exciting tale of victory in a recent league golf match. Come laugh and think with me!
EAB's Larisa Hussak and Brian Schueler urge university leaders to parse the data to better understand local market trends impacting your recruiting efforts. The chances are you are losing far more prospective students to other institutions in your state and region than you are to demographic shifts. Larissa and Brian suggest re-focusing your recruiting strategy around highlighting the quality of the student experience and the value of your institution to in-state applicants. Remember, it is nearly 10 times more cost-effective to target students within 25 miles of your school than it is to recruit out-of-state students.
Lewis Howarth was born and raised in the small European country of Luxembourg. His native language is English but he is also fluent in French and German. He studied at Brigham Young University before transferring to Penn State to receive a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration. Other than working as an MTC teacher for French-speaking missionaries in Provo, Lewis has worked in the technology space for his entire career, most recently working with a Gold Partner of SAP, Qualtrics, and Amazon Web Services. He leads a team across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, supporting the AWS Marketplace. Lewis served a mission in Berlin, Germany, and has served as a Sunday School and elders quorum teacher, ward executive secretary and president, Young Men president, Institute teacher, on the stake high council, and most recently as a bishop. Highlights 10:45 Lewis describes what being a member of the church in Luxembourg is like. 12:30 Lewis describes his experience being called as a bishop and the revelation he received in the temple. 15:30 Demographics of Lewis' ward in Luxembourg. There are 19 different languages spoken and a very diverse group of people from all over the world. It's a difficult situation to have to translate for many different languages in every single meeting they have. Despite the complex situation they face, the Luxembourg Ward has grown tremendously in the last few years. 20:55 Lewis explains how ministering works in his ward with so many different languages and cultures. They don't always speak the same language but show up for each other with love. 25:00 Principle 1 - The importance of setting up a structure. In many places of the world the Church is not established like it is in Utah. There are no roots and many people don't know what they are doing yet. However, it's important to establish the correct organizations, programs, and activities. 33:30 Principle 2 - Different seasons for different focuses and goals. Understanding the needs of today is very important. Each year is going to be different and there will be different challenges. God will prepare you for that next season. 40:20 Principle 3 - Don't get in the way. It's important as a leader to learn when you need to step in and when you need to step back. Let other leaders run their organizations. Let them make mistakes and learn. Check in with your organizational leaders in Ward Counsel or monthly one on ones. This gives them a chance to talk about the problems, their struggles and also hold leaders accountable. 55:20 Lewis describes how his time as a leader has helped him become a better follower of Jesus Christ.

The 2020 census numbers are in, and Chicago remains the country's third-largest city. But the demographics are shifting. Latinx people are now the city's second-largest racial or ethnic group, surpassing the city's Black population. These shifts have big implications for city politics and for Black and brown communities. WBEZ's Alden Loury tells host Jacoby Cochran about how Chicago got here and what the shifts could mean as aldermen begin remapping the city's wards.

Josh Culler is the owner and founder of Culler Media and podcast host of REI Marketing Weekly and The Content Marketing Playbook. Also, he is a sought-after mentor and an active real estate investor. He has been in the real estate investing industry for seven (7) years and has helped hundreds of investors in their marketing efforts.Like many successful people before him, he didn't go to school to study real estate in the effort to find a job. He was introduced to real estate at 19 years old by the father of his close friend. At the time, he just wanted a job that offered him the opportunity to be the creative genius that he is and make good money at the same time. After working for a while with several competitors, real estate investors, and clients, Josh discovered that he had a deep passion for content marketing and video production. Putting the other aspects of real estate on the backbench, he focused on strengthening his content marketing skills, which led to him zeroing in on a sore point for many real estate industry folks, video production. Through many successes and failures, he was able to break down the mammoth tasks of successful content marketing into simple, easy to follow steps that guarantee the best ROI.With his infectious personality and headstrong drive for success, Josh connects with his target demographic and clients on a friend-to-friend level. This skill of understanding your demography and maintaining open communication is one he aspires to teach all who seek him for guidance and mentorship. Through his company, Culler Media, he has positively impacted hundreds of people and aims to reach thousands, even millions more. Listen in as they discuss:Josh's journey into real estate and the successes he enjoys presently.Recognizing your strengths and capitalizing on them.Learning when to let go of strategies that inconvenience you and your business. The benefits of hiring experts in specific fields you are weak in, despite your drawbacks about spending money out of your pocket. Taking time to delegate low priority tasks to competent colleagues/employees and focusing on the high priority tasks. Studying your audience to determine your target demographic and the content that is widely consumed by them. Keeping an active line of communication with your target demographic to grow your following and prospective client list. And, more!Every quatre is like dog years when it comes to marketing because it evolves so quickly. ~Josh CullerTIP OF THE WEEKMark: My tip of the week actually can move the needle in your life. Start blowing up your content marketing, learn your target audience, and where and what is going to be the most receptive message for them, then go to cullermedia.com.Scott: If you like money and want more of it then you have to read The 1-Page Marketing Plan that Josh Culler mentioned.Josh: My tip of the week is: create relevant content for your target demographic. When it comes to creating contextual; relevant content for your target demographic is going to take you far above what you could possibly imagine when it comes to competing with your competitors. That could be several mediums like writing, video, podcast, etc. This is why knowing your target demographic is so important because if your target demographic is not listening to your podcast then don't put it on your podcast. If they're not reading articles don't put it in your articles. Creating contextual marketing to your target demographic that is relevant to them is important. The purest definition of content marketing is answering the questions of your target demographic or audience has about your industry, services, or products.Isn't it time to create passive income so you can work where you want, when you want and with whomever you want?
