In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending June 25th, 2022... what the Fed Chief is promising about inflation, what's happening with home price cuts, and top destinations for home buyers, and investors. 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.Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from this past week. Fed Chief Jerome Powell expressed his resolve, once again, to control inflation, but also warned that the Fed's aggressive interest rate hikes could result in some job losses. The Fed raised rates by three-quarters of a percent at the June meeting, and is planning to hike it again in July by either a half or three-quarter percent.Powell acknowledges that the Fed misjudged the risk of inflation and should have moved faster with the rate hikes. Powell said: “We did underestimate it. With the benefit of hindsight, clearly we did.” He says Fed officials anticipated a speedier end to the pandemic and supply chain issues, but that supply chain problems “remain problematic.” (1)Unemployment claims were down slightly last week, but they remain at a five-week high. Economists say it's a sign that the job market is cooling off although there's still a record number of job openings, and not enough employees to fill them. According to MarketWatch, 34 states and U.S. territories show a “decline” in jobless claims, while 19 show an increase. (2)New home sales picked up in May. The Commerce Department reports they were up almost 11% to a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 696,000. That's a big jump from the April numbers which came in at 629,000. They are still down 5.9% for the year however. Home price growth is slowing, thanks to rising mortgage rates. The median sales price for a new home was $449,000 in May. That's down from a record high of $454.700. (3)Existing home sales were down in May, for a fourth month in a row. According to the National Association of Realtors, they were down 3.4% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.41 million. There are far fewer existing homes for sale than new homes. While the supply of new homes could last more than 7 months, the supply for existing homes is just 2.6 months. The median price for an existing home has hit a new record high of $407,600. (4)Consumer confidence is dropping as inflation continues. The University of Michigan consumer sentiment index shows it fell to an all-time low of 50 in June. 50 is considered the mid-point between positive and negative on a scale of 100. Consumers are unhappy about high prices and the impact on their standard of living. (5)Mortgage RatesMortgage rates continue to move higher. Freddie Mac says the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rose 3 basis points to 5.81%. The 15-year was up 1 basis point to 4.92%. (6)In other news making headlines…Sellers Are Cutting PricesWe're starting to see more price cuts for listed homes. Data real estate firm Redfin says that almost one out of five home sellers lowered their price in May. That's the highest rate of price cuts since October of 2019. (7)Zillow economist Nicole Bachaud told Market Watch that it's a sign of the housing market rebalancing. She says: “The share of listings with a price cut is creeping up, possibly a sign that sellers cannot be quite as ambitious in their pricing strategy as they coil have in recent months.” She says homes are selling as fast as they ever have, and the typical homes is selling in seven days for more than the listing price.Homebuyers Love FloridaRedfin also did a little research on current trends for homebuyer destinations. It says that buyers are chasing after affordability, and that found that two Florida cities topped the destination list in April and May. Miami was number one as it has been all year, and Tampa pushed Phoenix out of the way for second place. (8)Tampa has become very popular since the start of the pandemic. Prices are up 28% year-over-year, but Tampa remains relatively affordable. A typical Tampa home sells for around $370,000. The national median is $424,000.Redfin says that Tampa is attracting a lot of newcomers from New York and the Northeast. Redfin says it's also attracting a lot of investors, which we, at RealWealth, can attest to.

A-NFT Ecosystem The decentralised cloud is here. The Quasa NFT ecosystem is made up of a large number of diverse storage providers and developers. This creates a robust and reliable service. Now IPFS users can reliably store their data with QUASA – a world of applications and use-cases stored, served, and powered by crypto. QUASA combines with IPFS, a peer-to-peer distributed network protocol, to make a more efficient and secure web free from corporate control. Content addressing and cryptographic storage proofs verify data is being stored correctly and securely over time. In the QUASA NFT ecosystem, all active NFTs (A-NFT) are available in real-time. A-NFTs are always available regardless of the blockchains they are created on and NFT marketplaces. Quasa Blockchain QUASA is the starting point for the growth and coordination of the Quasa Chain blockchain. The Quasa Chain is built on a secure, scalable, and reliable blockchain designed so that anyone can build on it, and billions of people can depend on it. The Quasa Chain is the technological backbone of the payment system, operated by a network of validator nodes. The software that implements the blockchain is open-source — designed so that anyone can build on it — and is able to scale so that billions of people can depend on it for their financial needs. The Quasa Blockchain implements the Clique and Quasa Byzantine Fault Tolerant 2.0 (QuasaBFT 2.0) consensus protocol. Byzantine fault tolerance is the ability of a blockchain network to function correctly and reach consensus despite nodes failing or propagating incorrect information to peers. As part of the QuasaBFT protocol, approved accounts, known as validators (signers for Clique), validate transactions and blocks. Validators take turns creating the next block. Before inserting the block onto the chain, a super-majority (greater than 66%) of validators must first sign the block. Existing validators propose and vote to add or remove validators. Adding or removing a validator requires a majority vote (greater than 50%) of validators. The number of validators is sufficient to ensure decentralisation. Each validator registers and manages the transactions of its users. The Quasa network is a large community of developers and users all coming together to collaborate and build something greater than themselves. The Mission The QUASA active NTFs (A-NTFs) ecosystem is built to enable open, instant, and low-cost access to blockchain services. Discover the world of decentralised applications in a whole new way with QUASA NFT. What are Active NFTs? Active NFTs are NFTs in which their life cycle, all events, documents and history have been added using smart contracts. We call this process “certification”. Moreover, it provides the NFT realm with more accessibility as it allows you to add and authenticate the author, owner of the NFT, and link the physical asset to the NFT. Active NFTs provide loads of benefits such as: Full NFT life cycle certification including all events and history; Associating a Physical Object with an NFT; Copyright and property rights protection for owners; Transition from passive traditional NFTs to active A-NFTs; Decentralised A-NFT signing by experts or the community on the blockchain. As such, they have the potential to influence several aspects of the entire market positively. For example, A-NFTs make it possible for investors to purchase more sought-after and valuable (certified) NFTs; meanwhile, it also provides a larger market for potential sellers. NFTs aren't just digital pieces of art. They are layered mechanisms for proving ownership, access, rights, and more. Active NFTs (A-NFTs) Empower Physical Items Active NFTs authenticate physical assets and represent them in virtual spaces with a unique active NFT (A-NFT). Now anyone can present objects, works of art, objects they own, and even their beloved pet in virtual spaces and metaverses with proof of ownership of these physical objects and the A-NFT...

Here’s another installment of Charlottesville Community Engagement capturing a few observations about June 22, 2022, the first full day of summer.

The Charlottesville Area Tree Stewards are opening up registration for their fall series of online training sessions and field activities running from August 9 through November 19. Full tuition details are at charlottesvilleareatreestewards.org and if you want to get a feel for what you may learn, there’s a public tree identification walk through the grand trees spanning the front areas of the University of Virginia on Sunday, June 26. Attendance is limited, so register today! June 27 meeting scheduled to review Charlottesville zoning reportTwo of the three components of Charlottesville’s update of its overarching land use policies are complete, and the work towards the third is moving along. Last week, the city released what’s being called the Diagnostics and Approach Report which provides a pathway forward for how the city’s zoning ordinance will be rewritten. (read the draft)“This zoning rewrite project is not about adding more plans, goals, or objectives – this work is entirely focused on implementing the Affordable Housing Plan and the Comprehensive Plan,” writes James Freas, the city’s director of Neighborhood Development Services. All of this work has been done and will be done done under the auspices of the Cville Plans Together initiative. A public meeting will be held on Monday, June 27 at the Ting Pavilion about the document. “At the core of the entire Cville Plans Together process there has been a commitment to addressing issues of racial equity and affordable housing and that core commitment remains as we work through the zoning rewrite. Meeting this commitment requires that our zoning allow people to build more housing units throughout the city, that it establishes incentives to include affordable units in new multi-family development, and that it is sensitive to the potential for displacement.” The draft report calls for several steps to make the zoning ordinance more predictable. This would include restricting the usage of the special use permit process to uses rather than bulk and massing. It would also discourage further rezonings. The future zoning map is to facilitate the vision of the Future Land Use Map, which calls for all single-family residential lots to be able to build three units with a fourth available if it is rented or sold at city-defined affordability levels. In fact, much of the additional density in higher-intensity zones would require that same affordability for “bonus” units. In a separate but related process, HR&A Advisors are working with Code Studio and the city on an inclusionary zoning ordinance to codify the details. This will also include the Sensitive Communities areas which are intended to stop further displacement in neighborhoods such as Fifeville and Tenth and Page. Several properties in those areas have recently sold for high amounts. Other useful information and recommendations in the draft:A description of housing types begins on page 33 if you want to know the difference between a carriage house and a triplex and a twelveplex.There is a recommendation to create zoning districts based on building form to reflect the different designations in the Future Land Use Map. There would be a “house-scale district” and a “medium-scale district.” Smaller lots would be permitted more “lot coverage” than larger ones.  Other recommendations include reducing parking requirements and the modification of existing setback requirements to provide flexibility to place more units on lots. There are pages of diagrams that depict how this might be achieved for different lot sizes and shapes. There is a focus on urban form rather than density, allowing density to be regulated by building codes and fire codes.Building heights would be expressed in both feet and stories Some of the many existing mixed use corridor districts with similar building heights and an urban form could be combined into a single district. The word “family” would be replaced with “household” or “unit” There should be more use of manufactured homes particularly for “tiny” homesThe Entrance Corridor Review Board should be eliminated by building standards into the zoning codeThe work is not yet complete. Some but not all of the existing zoning categories have been taken through the process but Appendix B shows the ones that have. There will certainly be more information about this process in the next few months. Please stay tuned to this newsletter which seeks to bring as much information as possible. Fundraising goal met to light up McIntire Skate ParkA public-private partnership to relocate a skate park removed for road construction resulted in a new facility in McIntire Park opening in 2019. But until now, there have been no lights due to budget cuts to the project made to get it completed. This morning the city announced a fundraising goal has been met and lights will be installed by mid-September. When in place, the park will stay open until 10 p.m. “The lights are LED fixtures from MUSCO Lighting, chosen for their low-light pollution, energy use, heat emission, and longevity,” reads a press release. The funding for the lights comes entirely from private donations with contributions from the Bama Works Fund, the Perry Foundation, the Rock The Lights Campaign by Duane Brown, Upper-level Screen Printing, Freestyle, Hatcher Consulting, and Anonymous Local Foundation.Second shout-out: SCAN holding a Beekeeping 101 class Since the very beginning of this newsletter, one long-time Patreon supporter has used his shout-out to draw your attention to the work of the Plant Northern Piedmont Natives Campaign but today let’s talk about National Pollinator Week, which runs through June 26!

The higher intensity zoning parcels have legally-binding conditions on them called proffers. “And one of those proffers is that the R-15 properties are limited to R-1 density until transportation proffers are deemed satisfied by the Board of Supervisors,” Ragsdale said. Some of the land had been owned by the Virginia Department of Transportation for usage for the now-defunct Western Bypass. The Rivanna Trail runs through the site and portions of it will be rerouted as part of the development. There are discrepancies between what county staff in terms of affordable housing and what the developer had offered. Ragsdale said the developer’s interpretation assumed that the R-15 properties are already rezoned and should not trigger the county’s policy. As such, they’re offering 14 of the units to be designated as affordable rentals. Staff disagrees. But the major concerns related to transportation impacts. Planning Manager Kevin McDermott said a traffic study commissioned by the developer found that intersections on the western end of Old Ivy Road particularly at the U.S. 250 interchange are already overburdened. “Existing conditions at those are currently failing for many movements and poor all around,” McDermott said. McDermott said the county and the Virginia Department of Transportation are working on potential options but the work is not complete. “If they are determined as feasible, we would need to identify funding for that,” McDermott said. The eastern end of Old Ivy Road has a narrow railroad underpass, which McDermott said was also being studied but nothing is shovel-ready. McDermott also said the traffic study also showed that Old Ivy Residences would cause further delays. He said there have been some improvements to upgrade the road such as installation of curb and gutter and a thirty-foot road width. However, he said nothing has been done to realign the roadway at the underpass and there’s a partial sidewalk on the south side of Old Ivy Road. Greystar argues development is consistent with comp plan John Clarkson is the managing director of Greystar, which is based in Charleston, South Carolina. “We think we have a project here that is very appropriate for what is defined by the zoning,” Clarkson said. “We intend to build a very thoughtful and well-designed project that meets the housing demand.” Greystar hired the law firm Williams Mullen to help them through the land use process in Albemarle. Attorney Valerie Long said there have been enough improvements on Old Ivy Road since the proffer was adopted in the rezoning in 1985. “Most significantly, the University’s construction of Leonard Sandridge Drive which obviously took a tremendous amount of traffic off of Old Ivy,” Long said. “Really the outstanding one is the railroad trestle. We certainly understand and agree that is a problem and we are comforted and encouraged by Mr. McDermott’s comments about how closely they are working with VDOT and the University representatives to address that issue.” Long said Greystar will make contributions to a solution when it is identified. She said the issue before the county is whether to approve dense housing inside of the designated growth area where the units would be close to where people want to be. There is currently no transit along Old Ivy Road, but Long said they would build a bus stop. They’re also asking for a reduction in the parking requirements. Long also addressed the concern about the developer’s interpretation of the county’s housing policy. The Bivins that Long refers to is Commissioner Julian Bivins, who represents the Jack Jouett district where this development would be built. “The land is zoned R-15, not all of it it, but the vast majority as Mr. Bivins indicated, about 27 acres, are zoned R-15,” Long said. “So we’re not asking for an increase in those parcels in terms of units.” Rents would be between $1,850 and $3,600. Bivins suggested that Greystar offer more than just 14 units. “Affordable units is not about poverty,” Bivins said. “Affordable units is about jobs and because our community morphing into more of a service industry, those jobs don’t pay as much as some of the other jobs used to be. So I think if this goes forward, when it goes forward, it would be a really strong signal that [you] really want to be responsive to the community if [you’re] not saying [you’re] only giving 14 units.” Public hearingOver two dozen people people spoke at the public hearing, most of them opposed. One of them was Joel Loving who lives in the Bel Air neighborhood.“There’s no question that adding as many as 1,500 residents and a thousand vehicles to this small area will have a substantial impact on pedestrian and vehicular traffic, stormwater, the local school system, and I’m sure there’s plenty more that will be discussed this evening,” Loving said. Elizabeth Kutchai recently moved into University Village after living in Charlottesville for decades. She said 525 units are too many. “The University of Virginia has already erected many new buildings on Old Ivy Road,” Kutchai said. “They also own Ivy Gardens Apartments and have plans to redevelop that property, increasing its density by 150 percent. See also:UVA making plans for Ivy Gardens redevelopment, June 9, 2021UVA committee briefed on new capital projects, June 4, 2022Many other residents from University Village asked for the Commission to consider specific topics, such as a concern fire and rescue access would be limited. “No fire department no matter how good they are is going to be able to cope with a fire in a development of this size when you have people packed in there like sardines,” said resident Daniel Avery.One of the final speakers from University Village was Sally Thomas, who served 16 years on the Board of Supervisors. In 2001, She voted to adopt the Neighborhood Model District zoning to fulfill the Comprehensive Plan goal of compact development in the designated growth areas. “This Old Ivy apartments complex is not what the county hoped for in smart growth,” Thomas said. “Why not? It’s certainly dense and within the growth area. But it’s also like too many other projects that seemed to be desirable developments. It overloads the present facilities and its interconnectivity just hasn’t quite been developed in a way that will work for both the residents and the neighborhood.” Only three people spoke in-person at the public hearing in favor of the rezoning. One was the lawyer for the property owner who will sell it to Greystar. Another was John Matthews whose company produced a report for the development. The other was Ivo Romenesko. He’s a Farmington resident who was also part of the Development Initiative Steering Committee which helped develop the Neighborhood Model. “The clock is ticking on the growth area,” Romenesko said. “I think that the double digit percentages that are occurring with population in Albemarle and the Planning District put pressure on Albemarle County and I would like to see the growth area accommodate as much reasonably good, well-designed development as it can so that we can preserve the beautiful areas of Albemarle County as long as we can.” In her rebuttal after the public hearing, Long acknowledged there is work to be done to increase connectivity for both pedestrians and motor vehicles. She said Greystar is offering funds toward improvements. “Greystar is committed to continuing to negotiate with all of its neighbors,” Long said. “They want to improve the safety and the traffic issues and they’re continuing to make those contributions and as somebody said, make the connections. We’ve spent a lot of time talking to Mr. McDermott and VDOT and other folks. We’ve had our traffic engineer putting suggestions together, our civil engineer drawing plans, submitting them to various off-site owners with engineered plans for paths, for connections, for road improvements. We just can’t do it unilaterally.” Commissioners had concernsAt-Large Commissioner Luis Carrazana likened the 1985 proffer restricting development until transportation improvements as a gate. “That is a concept that I believe is very useful particularly as we consider amendments to our Comprehensive Plan,” Carrazana said. Carrazana said the Commission hears again and again about overburdened roads and overcrowded schools. He also said he did not think the conditions of the proffer have been met. “In terms of the failing road, and that road is not getting any better,” Carrazana said. “It is dangerous.” Commissioner Karen Firehock said another constraint is the presence of the railroad, which has been owned by CSX for many years but will soon be owned by the Virginia Passenger Rail Authority. She said the underpass is hazardous after heavy rainfall. “I have seen cars floating, very surprised UVA students in fact not realizing that wasn’t just a puddle and having cars being towed out and totaled because they were underwater,” Firehock said. However, Firehock said she felt this was a good area to develop if the connections can be made. Commissioner Corey Clayborne said he felt the density could be appropriate but traffic concerns are a show-stopper. “I don’t believe that the transportation piece has been satisfied according to the Board’s stipulation on that,” Clayborne said. “That hasn’t been proven to me tonight.” Clayborne said he did understand how the developers came up with the number 14 for affordable housing units. “But nothing prevents you from doing above what the policy asks either and there’s just no way that I could vote for 525 units and… 14?” Clayborne said.Bivins suggested that Greystar could get permission to connect to Leonard Sandridge Road, which leads out to eastbound U.S. 250.“I don’t know you do that,” Bivins said. “You all are sophisticated enough and you all have the various buttons that you can push in that administration. I would encourage you do to that and I would particularly encourage you to do that before you meet with the Supervisors.” Bivins made a motion to recommend denial of the rezoning, but Long approached and asked for a deferral so some of the issues could be worked out. The Planning Commission granted that and Firehock has the final word in this story. “I will just say that I very much look forward to seeing how the applicant works on all of these things because I think we do believe that density in the urban ring is a good thing,” Firehock said. Support the program!There’s a lot of information in this installment of this program, which is the 397th edition of the program.

A 2021 survey of food consumers by Kerry indicated that https://explore.kerry.com/sustainability-whitepaper-2021 (62% of North American consumers) sustainability as a strong influence when making food and beverage purchases, and say it's a greater priority when selecting dairy, meat, or alternative protein products. At the same time, consumer interest in plant-based products is growing – but is it more sustainable? Important to our discussion, the https://www.noaa.gov/news-release/increase-in-atmospheric-methane-set-another-record-during-2021 (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recently reported) that “global emissions of methane surged by a record amount in 2021: 17 parts per billion, the largest amount recorded since systematic measurements began in 1983. Methane is 84 times more potent than carbon but breaks down faster. https://www.cnbc.com/2022/04/07/methane-emissions-surged-by-a-record-amount-in-2021-noaa-says-.html ((CNBC).) Critics are often quick to point the finger at agriculture, but may not know that cattle are actually part of the solution.  This increased awareness and interest from consumers and the reality of our ever-changing environment means farmers – particularly those produce meat, milk and eggs – are receiving questions and input about how their farms impact the environment not only from grocery shoppers but also business investors. A study released by the International Food Information Council IFIC: https://foodinsight.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/IFIC-Regenerative-Ag-Consumer-Survey.pdf (Consumer Perspectives on Regenerative Ag) in February found that over half of those consumers surveyed have heard of organic farming, crop rotation and sustainable farming; fewer are familiar with regenerative agriculture (in research file); 4/10 consumers believe organic foods are more nutritious; 1/3 want food grown using regenerative ag (but few know what that is); 35% would purchase more expensive cereal if grown utilizing regenerative ag. But the good news is while many misconceptions exist about the sustainability of animal agriculture, data and science bring clarity to the sustainability story, helping stakeholders from farm to fork understand the progress made so far and focus on continuous improvement. In this episode, guests will discuss the farm to table perspective on sustainability including what consumers are looking for and the latest sustainability trends – and why it's important for agriculture to engage in the conversation about sustainability, whether on social media, in the board room, with financial institutions, or with other food stakeholders, what we can do better to be more effective and reach a broader audience, and the research and data that can help share a realistic view of what's happening on the farm. They will also discuss what farmers in the dairy and beef industries (in honor of Dairy Month in June) are doing today to continue improving their operations. Guests will discuss: The latest consumer insights on sustainability and consumer wants/drivers. Existing data and science that helps tell the on-farm sustainability story, and how it's helping bridge the gap between perception and reality. What are farmers doing now, and what are they aspiring to do in the future, to continue building on past success in natural resource management and production. Regenerative agriculture – what it is and how it helps How animal agriculture is actually part of the solution – not the problem How everyone plays a role in continuous improvement and a successful sustainable story   Podcast guests:  Tara Vander Dussen, New Mexico Milkmaid – Environmental Scientist/Dairy farmer/online influencer and co-founder of Elevate Ag - https://www.elevateyouragstory.com/ (https://www.elevateyouragstory.com/) Jamie Jonker – Chief Science Officer and Vice President of Sustainability & Scientific Affairs for...

More specifically, Andrew Kaufman is a Medical Doctor, Psychiatrist and Molecular Biologist who received his training and degrees from Duke University, MIT and South Carolina Medical University. He says there are no such things as "viruses" and the "Coronavirus Global Pandemic" is a "manufactured event." The conversation around whether or not viruses exist, appears to conjure up all kinds of emotions, and is met with resistance. My guess is because virology is a deeply entrenched paradigm, and it is what we were taught as kids. A cult-like approach would be to dismiss dissenting views and, instead, to perpetuate a previously held belief. David Rasnick refers to this as the Tyranny Of Dogma. The science is never settled. Andrew joined me for a conversation about viruses and what they are; causation and indirect evidence; observation versus computer modelling; the origins of SARS-CoV-2; and the causes of illness, if not viruses.

As we approach the back half of the year, it's so vital to schedule our income generating activities along with all other facets of our business (particularly the growth aspects) so that we reach our goals without stress and sacrifice by the end of the year. Connect with me: https://callwithjaime.com/ https://www.instagram.com/jaimeslutzky/ https://m.me/jaimeslutzky/ Let's get to it! I like to work backwards and from goals rather than moving forward from a planning perspective. Oftentimes there are a lot of dates that just don't work in the back half of the year ~ such as holidays, vacations, birthdays and days you just don't want to work. Those are immediately blocked off the calendar, go do it now. Then it's time to map out our initiatives (like a course!) and our established income sources (hello lessons). Get specific on your calendar – know your course launch date and mark it. Know the hours that you're going to work with students - mark those days and times on your calendar, even if you don't yet know which student is going to fit into which slot. Once you know your new initiatives, backtrack into those launch dates. Courses will take anywhere from 3 days to 16 - 18 weeks…. This is depending on your level of experience with creating a course and your topic and everything else that goes into it. Think about where you are right now and figure out how long you believe it's going to take you to create that course and then put time on your schedule every week to work on that course. And then insert some buffer time in! We always think we're going to get things done faster or they're going to be easier or that distractions aren't going to happen. So if you're thinking okay for 12 weeks, I'm going to spend four hours a week on this course, maybe you should factor in five hours a week. Or maybe it would be more in line with your style to increase your hours during certain specific weeks to make sure that you hit that goal. When we know when something has to be done, we can back into this. I know that you can do this because you have most likely taken your students to examinations or to recitals or to competitions or to auditions and you have learned how to back them into that goal. By creating a schedule that says I'm free and I'm busy, it allows us the capacity to see what else we can add and to see what systems and processes we need to fix. It also allows us to see kind of where our income generation is. When we do this, we're able to see what else we can add. If you add in all of your students' spots and you realize that you don't have that 4-5 hours every single week to work on your course in order to hit that timeline then what? Are you moving the timeline? Are you adding more hours of work time? How are you going to make that course a reality? It's a serious question. There is so much to do when you are running an online studio and truthfully, there are so many opportunities! Regretfully, I see amazing music teachers, bouncing from this to that to something else. It is not feasible to try and pack your schedule with income generating activities alone. We also want to include on our schedule initiatives to streamlining our systems and processes. And admin time and marketing time and collaboration time and creative time and oh, you know that first thing that we started with time off! (We want to make sure that that doesn't get eroded.) Start with the “regular schedule” of September - December, then figure out how you're going to tackle summer. Think about when you want income generating activities, marketing activities, systems and processes during the summer… how do you want to get it all in so that you have your goals clearly outlined and available to attain? It is way too easy to sit down at the computer or pick up the phone and just kind of keep on working, creating boundaries, finding boundaries, enforcing boundaries. That's what your schedule also allows you to do. To recap… your schedule is going to be filled in this order: Non-negotiables Existing obligations (student/income generating activities) Business operations & marketing White space New initiatives The other thing about the back half of the year is because summertime is here, It allows us to make sure that we are on track to hit our income goals. If you determine from your existing obligations that you're $1000 short for each of September through December in order to reach your income goal, the new initiatives and unscheduled time will be spent to build a new revenue stream to bridge (and exceed!) that gap. You have so much flexibility and so much opportunity to experiment in the summer. When the days are longer, people might sign up for something that's earlier in the day, later in the day or at a different time of day than they normally would be able to. Getting creative is the key to success! I want to make sure that you're as successful as you desire – all this by saying yes to scheduling! It allows for everything NEW to take shape. I would love nothing more than to help you bring that product to market. I work with my clients on courses, membership sites, workshops, streamlining their tech, envisioning what's next and so much more… so book a call with me https://callwithjaime.com and we will determine the right way to create the online successes you crave!

Amazing FBA Amazon and ECommerce Podcast, for Amazon Private Label Sellers, Shopify, Magento or Woocommerce business owners,

We spend so much time as Amazon sellers stressing about how to get OFF Amazon. No wonder. Between Amazon's iron grip on customer data, the fact they showcase our competition to "our" shoppers/prospective customers and of course...the dreaded suspension email... we all have solid aspirations to develop our own independent sales channels. The reality however is often a damp squib. So many Amazon sellers I know have a Shopify or woocommerce site that does almost nothing. A few I know make a few % of revenue from their DTC site - but with almost no profit! So how do we make this work in reality?  Well one thing is to make use of all the incredible hard work we've already done on product research, design, development and supplier sourcing. Supply chains are hard things to make work at the best of times - especially these days! But if you've already done that work, leveraging your existing catalogue onto your own Direct to Consumer (DTC) site turns out to be surprisingly doable. Listen to Robert, ecommerce veteran of over two decades, as he talks through how to make this work successfully.   What You'll Learn How to start with a business case and work backwards to an excel sheet to utilize your product Catalogue inventory Different methods when it comes to tracking your product inventory The advantages of having a DTC Platform when it comes to serving it as your order and stock management system

Existing literature on the superiority of patient-specific instrumentation (PSI) in total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) over standard referencing (SR) is limited. Advantages presented include better implant alignment, shorter operating times, and increased accuracy of implant size prediction. The aim of this retrospective study was to analyze PSI in the hands of an experienced foot and ankle surgeon new to both PSI and SR for this specific implant, in regard to determining implant alignment, operative times, and radiologic short-term outcome and predicting implant size for tibial and talar components. In conclusion, the PSI method did not show an advantage over SR in regard to positioning of the components or the duration of the surgery. The current study suggests that no initial advantage of PSI over SR are to be expected in standard total ankle replacement.   To view the article click here.

How is it that there are so many ski areas in Southern California? Or New Mexico? Or how about that map dot above Tucson, or, for God’s sake, Ala-freaking-bama? Are those real? Why are there so many ski areas in practically snowless eastern Pennsylvania, and so few (relatively speaking) in snow-choked and mountainous Washington and Oregon?But one of the most curious sectors of U.S. skiing is the lower Midwest. Ohio hosts five public ski areas; Indiana has two; Illinois, four; Iowa, three; Missouri, two. That’s just 16 ski areas across five states. The upper Midwest, by contrast, hosts 90 ski areas across three states: 40 in Michigan, 31 in Wisconsin, 19 in Minnesota. So that 16 may seem low, but the lower Midwest’s ski area count is actually quite impressive if we look at the macro conditions. Take Ohio: why – how – does this windblown flatland host five public ski areas (a sixth, Big Creek, operates as a private club near Cleveland). Eastern Ohio – the western borderlands of Appalachia – is actually quite hilly. But there aren’t any ski areas there. Instead, Ohio ski life is clustered around or between the state’s many large cities – Dayton, Columbus, Cleveland.Most of America’s ski areas, if you pick them apart, exist because of a favorable combination of at least a couple of the following factors: elevation, population, aspect, accessibility, snowfall – often lake effect. North-facing Snow Trails, seated high (for Ohio) in the Possum Run Valley, right off Interstate 71 between Columbus (population 889,000) and Cleveland (population 383,000), combines four of the five. The ski area only averages 30 to 50 inches of snowfall per year, depending upon the source, but there’s plenty of juice (snowmaking) to keep the lifts spinning.The place, in fact, has more skiers than it knows what to do with. Last year, Snow Trails began limiting season pass sales for the first time in its 60 seasons. The outdoor boom hit Ohio as much as it hit New England or Colorado. People wanted to ski. If they live in the north-central part of the state, they’ve got a fine little hill to do it on.What we talked aboutSummertime at Snow Trails; the passing of Snow Trails long-time founder and operator David Carto; the ski area’s founding in the ‘60s; the unique climate of Ohio’s Possum Run Valley; Snow Trails’ novel water source; introducing a “Western” feel to an Ohio ski area; how climate, technology, commitment, and culture work together to make a ski area succeed; the incredible longevity of Snow Trail’s management team; 60 years working at one ski area; Snow Trails’ future as a family-run ski area; don’t let your significant other teach you how to ski; learning to ski on ropetows; the insane grind of a lower Midwest ski season; the Cal Ripken of skiing: 22 years as GM and he’s never missed a day; reflecting on last ski season; “whenever the opportunity comes to make snow, come November, we’re going to do it”; managing volume at a small, insanely busy ski area during the Covid boom; limiting season pass sales; when Snow Trails’ season passes may go on sale; whether Snow Trails has considered joining the Indy Pass; watching Ohio’s collection of independent ski areas slowly consolidate under a single owner throughout the early 2000s; the moment Vail bought four of the five public ski areas in Ohio; Vail’s abysmal performance in Ohio this past season and how Snow Trails rose above skiing’s larger labor and weather struggles to offer 79 hours of operations per week; how Snow Trails will respond to Vail’s $20-an-hour minimum wage; the “gut punch” of Vail’s decision to slash operating hours and days of operation after Epic Pass sales ended; whether the ski area will bring back midnight Fridays; oh man you do NOT take night skiing away from Midwesterners; thoughts on how Vail can turn around the disappointing state of their operations in Ohio; how the installation of carpet lifts transformed the beginner experience at Snow Trails; which chairlift the ski area would like to upgrade next; where the resort is thinking about installing a ropetow; the best location on the mountain to potentially add an additional chairlift; where Snow Trails could potentially expand; the story behind Snow Trails’ glades, an anomaly in the lower Midwest; advancing snowmaking technology and how it increases resilience to climate change; what’s new at Snow Trails for the 2022-23 ski season; and RFID.  Why I thought that now was a good time for this interviewVail stole the show in Ohio this past winter, mostly through a stunning display of callous ineptitude. Their four ski areas, which for decades have spun the lifts seven days per week, 10 or 12 or more hours per day, slashed hours and days of operation. Here’s what you were faced with, this past winter, if you were an Epic Pass holder in Ohio:Alpine Valley: closed Monday-Thursday, 3:30-9 Friday, 9-4 weekends (19.5 hours per week)Boston Mills: closed Monday & Tuesday, 10-3 Wednesday and Thursday, 4-10 Friday, 9-5 weekends (32 hours per week)Brandywine: 4-10 Monday-Friday, 9-5 Saturday and Sunday (46 hours per week)Mad River: 3-9 Monday-Friday, 10-5 Saturday and Sunday (44 hours per week)There were several elements of this modified schedule that were stunning in their complete misapprehension of the local market. First: night skiing, in the Midwest, is everything. Everything. Eliminating it – on Saturdays especially – is baffling beyond belief. Second: curtailing hours after season pass sales are complete is an offensive bait-and-switch, particularly for Midwesterners, who already weather the disrespect of the “flyover country” label. “How dumb does this Colorado, big-mountain company think we are?” was, by all accounts, the sort-of meta-narrative defining local sentiment this past season. Yes, the Epic Ohio Pass – good for unlimited access to all four of the state’s Vail-owned ski areas – started at just $279 for the 2021-22 ski season (it’s $305 right now), but it came with an implied promise that the ski areas would function as the ski areas always had. Crowded? Yes. Frantic? Yes. Existing on the margins of where people can hack a ski experience out of nature’s ferocious whims? Always. But it would be skiing, pretty much whenever you wanted it, for 12 weeks from mid-December to mid-March.Vail did not deliver on that expectation. The company responded to a mild early season and tight labor market not by dumping resources into operations and hiring but by retreating. Not just in Ohio, but in Indiana and Missouri as well. Paoli Peaks operated four days per week. The Missouri ski areas did better, with seven-day schedules and a decent amount of night skiing. But overall, Vail Resorts did not look like Vail Resorts in the lower Midwest during the 2021-22 ski season. The largest ski company in the world – proud, bold, insatiable, domineering Vail – looked bumbling, scared, confused, lost.And they would have gotten away with it, too, were it not for those meddling independent ski areas that carried on as though it were a completely normal Midwest ski season. Vail owns seven of the nine public ski areas in Ohio, Indiana, and Missouri. The other two – Perfect North, Indiana and Snow Trails – absolutely embarrassed Vail, exposing every flimsy excuse the company made for curtailing operations. Perfect North spun the lifts 89 hours per week. Snow Trails went 79, offering night skiing until 9 p.m. seven days per week. How did they do this? “We did what we always did,” Crislip told me in the interview. But what was that, exactly? And what could Vail learn from a little reflection after the humbling that was this past Ohio ski season?Why you should ski Snow TrailsCrislip mused, during our conversation, on the long-term advantages of severely discounting lift tickets for school groups. Those discounted tickets, he said, pay big dividends down the line.No kidding. I only ever tried skiing because 200-vertical-foot Mott Mountain, Michigan offered $6 lift tickets to my high school in the winter of 1992. I think rentals were an extra $5. A bus ride to the hill and back – about half an hour each way – was free.Mott Mountain is long gone, but I think we can conclude that the ski industry’s return-on-investment was sufficient. The amount of money that I’ve spent on the sport in the decades since that first bus ride is all of it. There were winters during which I did little else but ski and purchased almost nothing that was not directly ski related, other than gasoline and Taco Bell.Which is great for kids, right? But why would an accomplished skier ever want to ski a bump like Snow Trails, let alone travel there to do it on purpose? It’s a rhetorical question, asked because the world is still filled with studly chest-beaters, who answer questions like this:With machofest responses like this:Twenty years ago, we’d say that if you wanted someone to expose their true selves, get them drunk or angry. Now, you can just open their social media accounts. I don’t know where this dude lives, but if it’s anywhere near Snow Trails, I’d give him this bit of unsolicited advice: put your ego down (it may require the assistance of a forklift), store it somewhere safe, buy a season pass, and go enjoy yourself. If you can’t have fun skiing a bump like this, then I’m not sure you understand how to have fun skiing at all. Get to know the hill, get creative, nod to the lifties – treat it like your local bar or gym or coffee shop. Somewhere to be in the wintertime that isn’t your couch.  Or wait until your trip to Whistler and be happy skiing six days per year. I can’t tell you how to live. I’m just here to make suggestions. Here in New York, I know plenty of people like this. They wouldn’t dare ski Mountain Creek, New Jersey’s beehive-busy analogue to Snow Trails. “You probably ski Mountain Creek” they’ll type on social media, as though there’s something wrong with a thousand-footer with high-speed lifts and a happy hour-priced season pass. But once you adopt this mentality, it’s malignant. Soon, you’re also too good for Hunter, then Gore, then Killington, then, like the Twitter turkey above, the venerable Jay Peak, the NEK powder palace that averages more inches of average annual snowfall than Steamboat or Winter Park. Before you know it, your ski-day choices are down to Snowbird, Jackson Hole, Palisades Tahoe, and Revelstoke. Anything else “isn’t real skiing.”Or something like that. It’s all a little tedious and stupid. We’re fortunate, in this country, to have hundreds of viable ski areas, pretty much anyplace that hills and cold collide. If you live anywhere near one, there are a lot more reasons to frequent it than to snub it. There are plenty of skiers who live in Florida or Texas or Georgia, places where the outdoor lift-served bump is an impossibility. Not to sound like your mom when you were five years old, but there are plenty of kids in the world that don’t have any toys to play with, so try to be happy with the ones you’ve got. Go skiing.More Snow TrailsA Mansfield News Journal obituary for longtime Snow Trails owner David CartoNear the end of the interview, Crislip says refers to the work that “you and Matt” are doing to promote Midwest skiing. Matt is Matt Zebransky, founder of midwestskiers.com and all-around good dude. The site is comprehensive and terrific, and Zebransky is a really talented video producer and editor, who puts together some knockout reels laser-focused on Midwest skiing.

In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending May 28th, 2022... you'll hear about the “condo comeback,” a new wildfire risk assessment tool for your properties, and which states can save you the most money on taxes.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. Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from this past week and a bit of good news about inflation. The Federal Reserve's preferred method for tracking inflation shows that price growth could be slowing down. The Personal Consumption Index or PCE rose only .2% in April. That brings the annual rate down from 6.6% in March to 6.3% in April. As reported by MarketWatch, it was the first time we've seen a pullback in a year-and-a-half. (1)The PCE is considered to be more accurate than the Consumer Price Index or CPI because it factors in additional criteria such as consumers substituting expensive products for cheaper ones. The latest CPI shows an annual inflation rate of 8.3%.The Fed released the minutes of its last meeting which show that most central bank officials are in favor of two more half-percent rate hikes. Some officials believe that inflation has already peaked, but the minutes show that Fed officials feel that two more rate hikes are likely. The bank raised the Federal Funds rate by a half a percent (or 50 basis points) at the last meeting to a range of three-quarters to one percent. Some Wall Street analysts expect the Fed to go as high as 3% by the end of the year. (2)Meanwhile, unemployment claims went down which is a sign that the labor market is still strong. There were about 8,000 fewer new claims last week, for a total of 210,000. Most companies have positions they are trying to fill, and MarketWatch reports that only a “smattering” of companies have reduced their hiring plans or announced layoffs. The number of continuing claims rose slightly. There are about 1.35 million people collecting unemployment benefits. (3)New home sales took a bit of a nose dive in April. They were down 16.6% to an annual rate of 591,000. It's the fourth month in a row that they've gone down, thanks to higher home prices and rising mortgage rates. The median price of a home is now the highest on record at $435,000. The average price is even higher, at $570,300 which means there are more homes selling for that higher price point. The slowdown in sales has boosted inventory. It's now at a 14-year high of 444,000. (4)Existing home sales are also down for a sixth month in a row. The National Association of Realtors says that pending sales dropped to 3.9% in April, which is the slowest they've been in ten years. Compared to a year ago, they were down 9.1%. NAR's chief economist, Lawrence Yun, says higher interest rates have increased the cost of buying a home by more than 25%, and higher home prices have added another 15% on top of that. He's predicting that home price growth will slow down to about 5% by the end of the year, but that home prices are “in no danger of a meaningful decline” because of the housing shortage. (5)Mortgage RatesMortgage rate pain did ease up a little this last week. Freddie Mac says the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage dropped 15 basis points to 5.1%. The 15-year was down 12 points to 4.31%. Lower rates are the result of the housing market slowdown. (6)In other news making headlines...Demand Rising for CondosBuilders are responding to a new demand for condominiums. The National Association of Home Builders reports 11,000 starts for condominium units in the first quarter of this year. That's the highest level of condo construction since the third quarter of 2008. (7)Redfin manager, Chance Glover, in Boston told Realtor.com: “The condo market has bounced back. People are no longer afraid to live downtown, close to the crowds.” She says: “Rising prices are pushing single-family homes out of reach for a lot of buyers, so condos are affordable in comparison.” (8)New Risk Factor Tool for WildfiresThe foundation that developed a tool to determine a property's risk of flooding just introduced one for wildfires. The First Street Foundation said in a press release that more than 30 million properties across the U.S. have at least a 1% chance of wildfire over 30 years because of climate change. (9)The Foundation's new tool helps individual homeowners, buyers, and renters understand the wildfire risk for specific properties. Like you can with the flood risk tool, you can put your address into the tool and get details on the risk of a wildfire. That includes a risk factor on a scale of one to ten, the extent of potential damage, and the impact of recent nearby wildfires. (10)States with the Lowest TaxesDo you own property in a high tax or a low tax state? There's a new state ranking from Credit Karma that compares income tax, sales tax, and property tax for all 50 states. When you combine the impact of all three, the five states with the lowest total tax rate are (drum roll): Alaska Wyoming New Hampshire Nevada South DakotaFlorida is 6th on that list and Texas is 9th. You can check out the full list of states with a breakdown on the individual tax rates by following a link in the show notes at newsforinvestors.com.

What's the best diet for PCOS? Depends who you ask! You might see that you "have to" eat gluten- and dairy-free for PCOS. That you should eat low carb or keto. Does glycemic index matter? On the other hand you might see that you should give up all animal products and go 100% plant-based. You may even see that Intermittent Fasting is the secret key when it comes to managing insulin resistance and PCOS.  Should you count calories? Macros? Anything? No wonder there's so much confusion! In this episode I'm breaking down the research that does exist in PCOS nutrition, combined with my experience of working with thousands of women with PCOS, to share what actually works when it comes to managing PCOS with diet (hint: there is no best diet for PCOS... there's only the best diet for YOU). This Week I Talk About:  Existing and emerging research in PCOS nutrition, including low-calorie diets, low-carb / keto diets, low-glycemic diets, anti-inflammatory / Mediterranean diets, vegan / plant-based diets, and intermittent fasting / caloric timing Why you don't need to cut out any foods (even dairy and gluten) based solely on a PCOS diagnosis The problem with trendy "30-day fixes" or "75-day challenges" The common threads in "successful" PCOS diets and the ones that weren't so successful Why the best diet for PCOS is one that is individualized to your needs and goals   Mentioned in this episode Losing Weight with PCOS – In this NEW live workshop & Q&A happening June 15th at 7 PM EST, we'll talk about all the reasons WHY it's so hard to lose weight with PCOS, why focusing on the scale is the WRONG approach, and what to focus on instead – and the best part is it doesn't involve giving up ANY of your favorite foods.

In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending May 21st, 2022… forbearance claims hit a two-year low, rent levels are setting new records, and a new list of the “best places to live”. 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.Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from the past week, and comments from Fed Chief Jerome Powell about the central bank's resolve to fight inflation. He told the Wall Street Journal that “restoring price stability is… something we have to do” and, he says, “there could be some pain involved.” (1)The Fed approved a 50 basis point increase for the federal funds rate at its last meeting. And, it expects to do the same at the next two meetings. The short-term rate is now within a range of .75 to 1%. Raising it another 100 basis points will bring it to 1.75 to 2%.Powell says it's still possible to avoid a recession, but he's now describing the process as a “soft-ISH” landing. (2) He hopes to control inflation without a big impact on the labor market. He says, if there is a recession he hopes it will be “short and not all that deep.”Many economists are lowering their economic forecasts because of inflation and higher interest rates. That includes Fannie Mae's chief economist Doug Duncan. He says: “Financial conditions have tightened significantly and the economy is slowing faster than previously expected.” Fannie Mae now expects a full-year GDP of 1.3%. That's .8% lower than the previous forecast. The Fannie Mae group is predicting a modest recession in the second half of next year 2023. (3)Jobless claims hit a four-month high last week. There were 218,000 initial claims, which is 21,000 more than the week before. The number of people collecting benefits is still extremely low. 25,000 people dropped off that list last week, for a total of 1.32 million. That's the lowest number of claims since 1969. Economists are watching unemployment numbers closely because they typically rise before a recession. (4) New home construction hit a speed bump for the second month in a row. Housing starts were .2% lower to an annual pace of 1.72 million. Economists blame rising mortgage rates and higher home prices for the slowdown. Permits were down 3.2% to an annual rate of 1.82 million. A drop in single-family construction brought the numbers down. Starts on those projects were down more than 7% while multi-family starts were higher by almost 17%. Builders have shifted their focus to multi-family rental units as they try to meet the demand for housing. (5) Existing home sales were down in April. The National Association of Realtors says they fell 2.4% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.61 million. If you compare these numbers to a year ago, sales were down almost 6%. As reported by MarketWatch, this is the third straight month that sales have declined. Currently, there's a 2.2 month supply of homes on the market. (6)Mortgage Rates Mortgage rates came down slightly last week. Freddie Mac says the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was down 5 basis points to 5.25%. The 15-year was 4.43%. (7) In other news making headlines... Forbearance Claims Hit 2-Year Low The number of home loans in forbearance has now dropped below 1%. According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, forbearance claims dropped from 1.05% in March to just .94% in April. That's about 470,000 loans. The MBA says this is the lowest level since June of 2020, right before the pandemic left many homeowners without a paycheck, and without means to pay their loans. (8) The five states with the highest number of loans in forbearance include: Louisiana, Mississippi, West Virginia, New York, and Oklahoma.The five states with the lowest number of loans in forbearance include: Idaho, Washington, Colorado, Utah, and Oregon. Rent Levels Are Setting New Records Scorching hot demand for rentals is pushing apartment rents higher once again. Realtor.com says the U.S. median rental price hit a new high of $1,827 in April. The year-over-year increase for a studio apartment is 17.2%. For a one-bedroom, it's 15.6%. And, for a two-bedroom, it's 15.9%. (9) Orlando posted the largest rent gains in April at 32.9%. Tampa was next at 27.8%. San Diego, Las Vegas, and Miami were also among the top five rent gainers. “Best Place to Live” in 2022 When it comes to a great rental market, it doesn't hurt to score a top spot on a list of “best places to live.” And that's what you'll find on the latest U.S. News & World Report list which places Huntsville, Alabama at the top. The report analyzes several metrics including affordability, quality of life, health care, employment, and crime. (10)Editor Devon Thorsby says: “Much of the shakeup at the top of this year's ranking is a result of changing preferences.” He says: “People moving across the country today are putting more emphasis on affordability and quality of life than on the job market.” If you're curious about the other 11 cities on the list, here they are: Colorado Springs, Colorado; Green Bay, Wisconsin; Boulder, Colorado; San Jose, California; Raleigh and Durham, North Carolina; Fayetteville, Arkansas; Portland, Maine; Sarasota, Florida; San Francisco; Ann Arbor, Michigan; and Naples Florida.
