GUEST: DAN CELIA, CEO/president, Financial Issues Stewardship Ministries You've noticed it at the gas pump, grocery store, and elsewhere—prices are rising. But of course they are—the supply of dollars can't be increased through printing more without the value and buying power of an individual dollar decreasing. The Wall Street Journal reported that inflation rose more the last 12 months than it has in 13 years. More is likely to come, with rampant spending being proposed. And it's not just inflation. Have you noticed shortages on shelves…and at the car dealership? The government-ordered lockdowns of the economy over COVID and people not working has led to scarcity of goods and delays in transporting them. Meanwhile, the Biden Administration and the Left are doing everything they can to pass a $3.5T “Infrastructure Bill”, which has very little to do with roads and bridges and very much to do with expanding the power of government and dependency on it. It all sounds like a prelude to the inflation and scarcity described in the End Times in Revelation 6, when a global leader and government takes control.

Speaker: Pang Laikwan, Professor of Cultural Studies, Chinese University of Hong Kong This paper focuses on the wide popularity of the meme and buzzword jiucai, garlic chives, on China's internet to investigate the cultural and political subjectivity of the ordinary Chinese citizens in a time of fierce competition simply to survive, largely known as neijuan, involution. Through this investigation of the garlic chives meme, the paper also updates Foucault's theory of the biopolitics by investigating the deeply intertwined relation between the biological, the economic, and the political in contemporary Chinese governmentality. While the post-socialist PRC has developed a sophisticated economic rationality to legitimize its state sovereignty, this economic sovereignty also strains the ordinary subjects so much that it begins to pose serious challenge to this legitimacy. PANG Laikwan is Professor of Cultural Studies at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. She is the author of a few books, including, more recently, The Appearing Demos: Hong Kong During and After the Umbrella Movement (U of Michigan, 2021), The Art of Cloning: Creative Production During China's Cultural Revolution (Verso, 2017), andCreativity and Its Discontents: China's Creative Industries and Intellectual Property Rights Offenses (Duke UP, 2012).

The truth about the US Indian boarding school policy has largely been written out of the history books. Started in the 1800s across the US and Canada, Indian Boarding schools were government-funded and often church-run. The goal? Forced assimilation of Native children into white society under the belief of “Kill the Indian, Save the Man,” which still contributes to how we see and treat Indigenous Peoples today. Sadly, the marked and unmarked graves of children have been found in the residential school systems of both Canada and the US. The total is now over 6,500 indigenous youth, having died amid accusations of abuse and neglect. Our guests, SunRose IronShell and Manape LaMere, update us on the current situation and the history of this generational trauma, and how bringing home the remains has become a way to tell the children's stories and hold to account these schools.

Closing the Latino wealth gap with youth-focused, digital content

Women on The Move Podcast

Economic research has shown that among Americans, Latinos spend the most, but save and invest the least as demographic. Beatriz Acevedo has set out to change that. During the pandemic, she co-founded SUMA Wealth with the mission of helping close the Latino wealth gap via youth-focused, pop culture–inspired financial content and fintech tools. In this episode, Beatriz sits down with her friend, Alice Rodriguez, head of community impact at JPMorgan Chase & Co., to discuss the venture, her motivation, and her goals. Motivation from her border roots Beatriz describes herself as “a very proud border girl, an immigrant entrepreneur.” Born to parents who lived in San Diego but purposefully moved across the border for their daughter to be born a Mexican citizen, Beatriz describes her father as “the classic Latino man who came from absolutely nothing.” A proponent of hard work and education, he became an attorney and started a philanthropic foundation 30 years ago. “Every cent he made in his career, he put it back into the foundation for educational opportunities for our community,” she notes. Beatriz shared that her parents' work and philanthropic focus profoundly shaped her motivations. “I've always felt like I am one of those Latina outliers that was able to have opportunities from a young age,” she tells Alice. “It doesn't mean I didn't work hard for them, but we know in our community, there are so many deserving Latinos and Latinas that worked so hard and are still not given the opportunities, whether it's capital, whether it's boards, whether it's advancement on a job. So I want to spend as much time as I possibly can every day opening as many doors as I possibly can for my community.” Ethos of a brand Alice describes how the demographic discrepancies in the economic impact of the pandemic inspired her to move forward with SUMA Wealth. Alice was an established philanthropist and a leader in digital media and brings a focus on the Latino point of view to multiple mainstream entertainment platforms, but she recognized that Latinos were being hit the hardest by both health and economic measures during the pandemic. “We had the least amount of emergency savings [and] were not equipped for something like this to happen in our families,” she says. Beatriz knew she could help reverse that trend. Despite the fact that her background was in media, entertainment and marketing—not finance—she co-founded SUMA Wealth at the height of the pandemic. Knowing that younger Latinos are the fastest-growing demographic spurred Beatriz to focus SUMA on them. “These are U.S.-born kids who are English dominant, consume the content in English, but they're still untrustworthy of certain financial institutions because they just don't know, they want to learn more, and they want to have that trust,” she explains. “And I thought, now's a really incredible opportunity to build a brand and a community that really speaks to them in culture, more than in language.” Beatriz explains that with SUMA, her goal is to empower the Latino community by building trust around tools and services that are already available to them. Adding the in-culture media context ensured its success: In its first ten months, SUMA surpassed all of its growth metrics. Looking ahead One key message that Beatriz strives to share with the Latino community is that when it comes to improving your finances or financial literacy, it's never too early and it's never too late. “A big goal that we have at SUMA is to really empower our community with so many tools and services that are already available to them, but to have the trust,” she says. “And I think doing it through the youth, through the millennials, through the gen Z's and the families and the communities, is a really smart way to do it because they are the big influencers and an ROI through one of them is never one-to-one, it's always one-to-many. So I think that's how we need to think about really scaling this information into our community.” This month SUMA is launching a free financial check-up tool where people can track how they are doing on saving, paying off debt, investing, and other financial indicators. “I would love to see that growth in our community of feeling comfortable, not just being the biggest spenders,” she tells Alice. “I would love to change that data from the biggest spenders to the biggest savers and investors. I would feel incredibly satisfied with that as part of my legacy.”

80% Market Crash Ahead, But Meltup Still Has 20% To Go Beforehand | David Hunter (PT1)

Markets have become a lot more volatile recently, violently lurching up and down, and are off nearly 5% from their all-time highs as of a month ago. A growing number of analysts are concerned that this is the start of a larger correction. This year's spike in inflation is proving a lot less transitory that the Fed expected. Supply chains remain badly disrupted. Economic growth is slowing, particularly in Asia where the failures of massive firms like Evergrande threaten to destabilize things further. Energy shocks are suddenly happening all over the world. It's understandable that more and more people are now asking: Is the bull market over? Is a market correction imminent? No - says today's guest expert David Hunter. Or more accurately -- not yet. David is Chief Macro Strategist at Contrarian Macro Advisors. He expects a further final melt-up in the markets from here....to be swiftly followed by a truly massive market crash of up to 80%. We've been closely following David's aggressive market predictions this year, as they've so far mostly proven eerily accurate. So we're very fortunate to have him back on the program to give us the latest update on his current outlook. See the YouTube Video for the charts and graphics: https://youtu.be/Dk6G0nPioLs

Ares has already been an investor on projects such as the construction of the largest single-phase, single-site wind facility in the country. “Through origination, construction, and operation of utility-scale wind, solar, and storage facilities, distributed energy resources, and green fuel technologies, Apex is expanding the renewable frontier across North America,” reads the description of Apex Clean Energy in the release. The same management team will remain in place. The company has over 300 employees. Construction continues on their new headquarters in downtown Charlottesville. Jaunt has hired the head of the Metropolitan Tulsa Transit Authority to be its next chief executive officer. Ted Rieck will start work on December 6 and interim CEO Karen Davis will continue on as chief operating officer. In Tulsa, Rieck oversees a public transit fleet that serves five communities and has a $23 million budget. According to the agenda for the most recent meeting of the authority’s seven-member board, Rieck has faced many of the same challenges facing transit agencies in our area such as a shortage of people willing to be drivers as well as COVID testing employees. According to the minutes of the August meeting, Rieck had announced his retirement from Tulsa to the board. (September meeting packet)This is of course Try Transit Month and this morning there was a stakeholder meeting for the Regional Transit Vision plan under way. I’ll have more on that in a future installment of the program. But all of the local transportation providers have banded together to produce a series of videos about how you can discover transit.  The first one is called Calling In. Take a look and if you share it, use the hashtag #busorbust on Twitter when you share it with all of your friends. (watch)Remembering MiddleditchWhen the Albemarle Supervisors met on Wednesday, Supervisor Ann Mallek noted the passing of Leigh Middleditch, a lawyer with a long history in Charlottesville affairs, at the age of 92.“People of his and my parents’ generation worked in so many different ways to build community here,” Mallek said. “He was always focused on collaboration and finding solutions with people of all comers, all ages, all neighborhoods, all locations.” Mallek said that Middleditch organized an effort to improve transportation funding in the area in the mid-2000’s. “He also founded the Planning and Coordination Council to bring city, county, and UVA together to find solutions to local problems from the water supply plan to roadway to all sorts of things that are local group is dealing with today,” Mallek said. The Planning and Coordination Council was disbanded in 2019 in favor of a closed-door body known as the Land Use and Environmental Planning Committee. There was an update on their efforts on the Board of Supervisors’ consent agenda. (LUEPC update)Supervisor Liz Palmer noted Middleditch was actively engaged in efforts to make this year’s redistricting less partisan than in years past under the OneVirginia2021 initiative.“He also was instrumental in the Virginia 2021 redistricting revisions and getting that going,” Palmer said. In a bit, we’ll hear more about redistricting. Read more on Middleditch’s legacy in any one of these articles:In Memoriam: Leigh Middleditch ’57, Sorensen Institute Founder Who Worked To End Gerrymandering in Virginia, UVA Law From the newsroom: We say goodbye to civic leader and Charlottesville Tomorrow board member Leigh Middleditch, Jr., Charlottesville TomorrowMiddleditch, activist who fomented change in state and region, died at 92Comprehensive Plan updateIn yesterday’s newsletter, we heard about the beginnings of fire engine service from a fire station on Pantops at station 16. I had hoped to get a quote in from someone at the Board of Supervisors meeting when this was announced, and here it is from Supervisor Chair Ned Gallaway. “Having a full fire engine along with an ambulance stationed at Pantops, which is our second busiest area in the county not only helps the immediate area of Pantops, but this impacts our entire system,” Gallaway said. “So now that other places that are just as busy as areas don’t have to get pulled out and over to [Pantops], they can serve as the secondary or the backup to Station 16.” For decades, Albemarle County has planned for growth and investments such as the Pantops public safety station by concentrating residential development into designated areas. That’s codified in the county’s Comprehensive Plan which was last adopted in July 2015. Michaela Accardi is a senior planner with Albemarle County. “The Comprehensive Plan or the comp plan establishes Albemarle’s long-range vision that guides growth, development, and change for the next 20 years,” Accardi said. “The Comprehensive Plan serves as the basis for land use development regulations and decisions, such as rezoning and special use permits, capital improvements, new county programs and the distribution of county budget dollars to programs and agencies.”Earlier this year, the Board of Supervisors directed the next plan review to take place at the same time changes are made to the county’s zoning ordinance. Accardi said the Comprehensive Plan needs to be updated to reflect new initiatives and policies adopted by the county, many of which are summarized in a strategic plan adopted by the Board in 2018.  (download the presentation)“The Board’s strategic plan includes climate action planning, economic development, infrastructure planning, revitalizing aging neighborhoods, and expanding broadband,” Accardi said. Economic development is codified in the Project ENABLE plan. The Climate Action Plan was adopted last October.  Housing Albemarle was adopted this past July. Now, the Comprehensive Plan has to be updated to reflect this general direction for the county. “Finally, to further the county’s commitment to providing the highest level of public service and enhancing the quality of life for all its residents, the county’s Office of Equity and Inclusion was created in 2018,” Accardi said. Accardi said staff hopes to take from best practices in planning to integrate all of these into a new plan. One cited is Minneapolis 2040.“Which reviewed the city’s land uses to identify opportunities for a mixture of housing types and levels of affordability,” Accardi said. Others include Richmond 300: A Guide for Growth and Memphis 3.0. The latter has the tag line “In our third century, Memphis will build up, not out.” Phased approached to zoning reviewRachel Falkenstein, a planning manager with Albemarle, said the zoning review will take place over many phases with adoption of several steps at a time. “Phase 1 will be focused on simplification and clarity of a few topics such as use classification and setbacks and work on this phase has already begun,” Falkenstein said. “Phase 2 of the zoning update will be intended to focus on resource preservation topics such as dark skies, tree preservation, and historic preservation.”Phase 3 would look at street standards in commercial and industrial zoning districts and Phase 4 will update residential and mixed-use zoning districts. Most of the presentation dealt with the scope of the Comprehensive Plan update. The first phase will take a look at the central cornerstone of the plan for decades. “Phase 1 is called Growth Management Policy and Plan Framework and the goal of this phase is to review, evaluate, and if needed update the growth management policy through the lens of equity, climate action, and county capacity projections,” Falkenstein said. Work is underway on this phase. The second phase will look at what other topics should be highlighted in the plan and a review of the existing plan. Phase 3 will see the creation of action steps for implementation. “In Phase 3 we also intend to detail out each of our topics and determine how the topic goals should be implemented and we’ll identify metrics for each of our topics so that we can track progress moving forward,” Falkenstein said. Phase 4 will bring the draft document together. Falkenstein said the goal is to have an updated document ready for adoption in the middle of 2024. More details will return to the Board at their first meeting in November when the Board will have a work session on how community engagement for the plan review will take place.Supervisor Diantha McKeel supported the approach.“I do like the targeted look at specifics rather than try to do a broad Comprehensive Plan all at one time,” McKeel said. “I think this is absolutely the way to go.” Supervisor Liz Palmer sought more specifics for what specific changes needed to be reviewed in the zoning ordinance as part of this process. Falkenstein had this answer.“Our zoning map does not match our comp plan land use map in a lot of places and that’s an additional step we could take to prioritize,” Falkenstein said. In another public service announcement, want to take a tour of Secret Charlottesville? On October 15, the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society will lead a tour based on author Marijean Oldham’s new book Secret Charlottesville: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure. The tour begins at 7 p.m. and is free, though donations are welcome. The book is available at New Dominion Bookshop. Email the ACHS to reserve your spot. Locals weigh in on redistrictingThe Virginia Redistricting Commission next meets tomorrow after a week of public hearings in which participants were asked to weigh in on two different maps for both the 40 seats in the Virginia Senate as well as the 100 seat House of Delegates. The 16-member commission was able to reach consensus between different versions produced by Democratic and Republican consultants. Yesterday, it was the Charlottesville area’s turn to weigh in on the different maps. Here’s Commissioner Sam Kumar of Alexandria, who chaired yesterday’s public hearing. “The most recent House of Delegates maps are A7 and B6,” Kumar said. “The most recent Senate maps are A5 and B4.” You can take a look at the maps here to follow along. Under the A7 Statewide map for the House of Delega tes drawn by the Republican consultant, Albemarle County is split into three legislative districts. Northern Albemarle would be in the 74th District along with all of Greene and some of Orange County. Charlottesville would be in the 75th District along with much of Ivy in Albemarle County. Southern Albemarle would be in the 76th District along with all of Amherst and Nelson counties. (A7 map comment page)Under the B6 Statewide Map for the House of Delegates drawn by the Democratic consultant, Albemarle is in two districts. Charlottesville would be in the 80th district with central-eastern Albemarle. All of Albemarle County would be in the 81st District along with a portion of eastern Augusta County. (B6 map comment page)Former Charlottesville Mayor Kay Slaughter went first during the public comment period to object to how Albemarle County was treated under both plans. “The Republican plan divides it into three districts,” Slaughter said. “The Democratic plan makes it one district which crosses the Blue Ridge  to August County, and while Augusta County and Albemarle County may share these beautiful mountains they are not a community of interest. Neither does Albemarle share interest with the Lynchburg area an hour to the south.”Slaughter urged the Commission to redraw the maps to include parts of Nelson, Fluvanna, or Greene because they are all are part of the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission. Currently, Albemarle’s House delegation is split into four legislative districts. Albemarle County resident Michael Rodemeyer asked for a less fractured map.“My plea to you is pretty simple,” Rodemeyer said. “Keep Albemarle County together. Taken together, Albemarle County and Charlottesville almost make up enough of population for two House of Delegate districts. We only need about another 12,000 to 13,000 people for there to be a complete district.” Tim Hickey ran as a Democrat in the 59th district in 2019. He urged the Commission to support a major theme in map B6. “Map B6 keeps Albemarle County as unified as possible by keeping us into two districts,” Hickey said. “Not three, not four, but two, and that needs to be non-negotiable.” Hickey suggested that Albemarle be included with Nelson rather than Augusta, but that Amherst has nothing to do with either despite the presence of U.S. 29. “I have spent a lot of time on that stretch of road,” Hickey said. “People in Amherst largely use it to go back and forth to Lynchburg and people in Nelson largely use it to go back and forth to Charlottesville. When I was campaigning, people south of Nelson County, the voters, would routinely ask me if I were in the right place. They would say ‘we’re not in the same district as people in southern Albemarle.”Edgar Lara of the group Sin Barreras said he could see a Congressional district that included Albemarle and Augusta County. His family has lived in the Waynesboro era for over twenty years and he lives in Albemarle. “My community is primarily one of immigrants or children of immigrants with us speaking Spanish as our first language and working the same types of jobs, we have a similar culture and experience many of the same challenges in our communities of Virginia,” Lara said. Pete Costigan of Ruckersville also said that Augusta and Albemarle don’t share enough interests to be in the same district. “Greene County residents have more common interest with Albemarle County than they do with either Page or Rockingham,” Costigan said. “Specifically, Greene County residents largely drive to Albemarle for shopping or medical care.”Under the A5 statewide map for the Senate drawn by the Republican consultant, Albemarle and Charlottesville would be within the 31st District along with Nelson, Fluvanna, and Buckingham counties. (A5 Senate map)The B4 statewide map drawn by the Democratic consultant is similar, but the 31st District would include Greene rather than Nelson.

Democrat hyperbole over crashing markets, debt defaults, and diving into depression was all just that: hyperbolic economic hypochondria: Those ills weren't going to happen. Markets did retest the major support of the last few days, and did rally back above the 100-DMA. This sets up the market for a rally to the 50-DMA as relief over the debt ceiling comes to fruition. Negative money flows have been improving, and we're watching for a MACD-signal crossover: A buy-signal would provide a trigger into the seasonally-strong period of the year. Caveat: There's much going on. We're looking for weaker Q3 earnings announcements, and forward earnings expectations will be key. Economic growth expectations are also dropping, which will weigh on corporate earnings, and limit stock price increases. Watch fixed-income for downward bias as the debt ceiling has been relaxed. Should the Fed begin to taper in November, that will exert more downward pressure, as well. We think less international, less emerging markets, and more domestic exposure in portfolios is the way to go. - Hosted by RIA Advisors Chief Investment Strategist, Lance Roberts -------- Articles mentioned in this report: https://realinvestmentadvice.com/technically-speaking-bears-gain-control-as-market-fails-resistance/ -------- Get more info & commentary: https://realinvestmentadvice.com/newsletter/ -------- Visit our Site: www.realinvestmentadvice.com Contact Us: 1-855-RIA-PLAN -------- Subscribe to RIA Pro: https://riapro.net/home -------- Connect with us on social: https://twitter.com/RealInvAdvice https://twitter.com/LanceRoberts https://www.facebook.com/RealInvestmentAdvice/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/realinvestmentadvice/ #DebtCeiling #Default #Depression #EquityExposure #InterestRates #PortfolioRebalancing #SpendingBill #MarketLiquidity #Stocks #Trading #Rates #Money #Markets #Finance

"In this piece we discuss our concerns around the broader “crypto” space beyond Bitcoin. Our arguments revolve around three primary themes: Philosophical, Technical, and Economic. From a philosophical perspective, we discuss the core properties that make Bitcoin work and that make it unique, in our view. From a technical perspective, we evaluate how these properties are lacking to a greater or lesser extent in alternative “cryptoassets,” having been designed out again on questionable philosophical justifications. From an economic perspective, we walkthrough our concerns that “crypto” has not shown a path to establishing a basis for justifiable real-world value, explain why we believe this would be very difficult to ever accomplish, and suggest therefore that their technical flaws are especially vulnerable. Given the complexity of the task we have set ourselves, this piece is intended to bring our arguments into long form and provide a discussion base for good faith disagreement." - Allen Farrington & Big Al Section Summaries: Part 1 - The Innovation From First Principles Part 2 - Crypto is Not Decentralized Part 3 - Crypto is Not Finance Part 4 - The "Investment" Rationale Part 5 - Layered Architecture and Gall's Law Part 6 - Why We Might Be Wrong Find the original work and further details in the appendices here: https://www.uncerto.com/only-the-strong-survive This unabridged reading was brought to you by the BitBox hardware wallet, the open source vault for your Bitcoin keys; The Fold Card, earn sats back rewards on everything you purchase; and Swan Bitcoin, the automatic Bitcoin purchase plan for every Bitcoiner.
