Lee Enterprises issued a press release on Wednesday with the headline Board Takes Action in Response to Alden’s Unsolicited Proposal to Acquire Lee. Specifically, the Iowa-based company’s Board of Directors have initiated a limited-duration shareholder rights plan that issues existing shareholders additional rights in the case of a hostile takeover. “In adopting the Rights Plan, the Board noted Alden’s track record of rapidly acquiring substantial control or ‘negative control’ positions in other public companies and its seemingly inconsistent disclosures,” reads the press release.Alden Capital Group asserts they own six percent of the Lee’s shares. Shareholder rights plans are also known as “poison pills” and have been used since the 1980’s to ward off corporate takeovers. Read more about this topic in an article on Editor and Publisher. (learn more on Wikipedia)Airport investmentThe recently adopted Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act provides $15 billion for airports across the nation. Virginia airports will receive nearly $400 million of that amount, according to a press release from Senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner. The Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport will receive $15.44 million and Freeman Field in Louisa County will get $790,000. The airport in Orange County will also receive $790,000. Elsewhere in Virginia, Dulles International will get $120.4 million, Richmond International will get $35.6 million, and Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional will get $14.97 million. Lynchburg will get nearly $6.5 million and Culpeper Regional $1.48 million. I’ll have more information about how Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport will use their funding in an upcoming edition of Charlottesville Community Engagement. Albemarle PC comp plan updateThe review of the Albemarle County Comprehensive Plan is underway, with a lot of behind-the-scenes work by staff before a public kickoff begins in January. The Albemarle Planning Commission got a update on the process at their meeting on November 16. Here’s Tori Kannellopolous, a senior planner with the county, with a reminder of the plan’s purpose. “The Comprehensive Plan, or comp plan, establishes Albemarle County’s long-range vision that guides growth, development, and change for the next 20 years,” Kannellopolous said. “It assists county staff, appointed committees and boards, and the Board of Supervisor when developing public policies related to private land use activities and use of resources in Albemarle.”For the past forty years, the major theme of the county’s comp plan has been growth management. Roughly five percent of land in Albemarle is designated for urban development including more dense residential areas and commercial activities. The rest is considered rural. This time around, Supervisors have directed staff to update the zoning ordinance while reviewing the overall Comprehensive Plan. The process formally got underway when Supervisors adopted a resolution on November 3. (Albemarle Supervisors Kickoff Comprehensive Review) One of the intents of this review is to streamline much of the content of the plan, which is currently 406 pages. That number doesn’t include the various appendices. (read the current plan)“For example, the existing implementation chapter includes 70 priorities,” Kannellopolous said. “There is not a clear prioritization of these items and the order in which they should be completed. The chapter includes 80 indicators of progress that are intended to be tracked annually but tracking this data is unsustainable and the sheer number of indicators make it unclear for community members to understand what success looks like.”This review also provides an opportunity to integrate the various strategies of more recent plans, such as Housing Albemarle, Project Enable, and the Climate Action Plan. In all, there will be four phases, with the first being a review of the growth management policy. “This includes reviewing, evaluating, and updating the growth management policy as needed using the lenses of equity, climate action, and capacity projections,” Kannellopolous said. “A capacity analysis for housing and economic development in the county is currently underway and this is to understand if we have the capacity in our development areas for the projected growth of our community.” Phase two will identify topics that will be updated in the comprehensive plan, likely related to transportation and economic development. The county will create its first multimodal systems plan as well. Phase three will review the actions the county will take in the form of written strategies. Phase four will be the finalization of the new plan. “We will focus our efforts on identifying and eliminating plan inconsistencies across content and we will engage the community and decision-makers on overall plan priorities once all of the content is considered as a whole,” Kannellopolous said. State code assigns the job of preparing and recommending the Comprehensive Plan to each locality’s Planning Commission. Supervisors have approved a process that includes a working group of stakeholders to guide the process. Rachel Falkenstein is a planning manager in Albemarle. “The working group is approximately an eight to twelve person group of community members whose role would be to advise county staff on plan recommendations, community engagement approaches, and to support staff’s community outreach efforts by sharing information with their networks, their neighborhoods, or their communities,” Falkenstein said. The group members have not yet been selected. “We are going back to the Board of Supervisors with information sharing about the selection process at an upcoming Board meeting in December,” Falkenstein said. Broad community engagement will come in the form of workshops on the plan. The Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors will play a role in decisions about changes to Albemarle policies. Planning Commission Chair Julian Bivins noted that the Commission’s input will come later in a process that has already begun. He said he wants the Commission to meet with Supervisors. “So that we can hear each other and discuss these discussions before we get to an endpoint,” Bivins said. The review of the zoning code will happen concurrently and is currently underway. Charles Rapp is the county’s Planning Director. “We have a first phase right now and it’s called modernization,” Rapp said. “Two of those have been brought to you through a resolution of intent that deal with bonus densities and wavers and special exceptions.” The Supervisors will hold a public hearing on special exceptions at their meeting on December 1. (staff report)Rapp said another change will be to streamline the list of land use categories. “I believe our current chart is something like 16 pages long right now with very specific uses and we want to try to tailor that back to something more reasonable,” Rapp said. “We also want to take a look at our setbacks. Our setbacks are quite complicated to figure out with multiple different ways within each zoning classification and we want to try and improve that and make it a little more clear for people applying our zoning ordinance.” If you’re interested in learning more about how Albemarle’s Community Development Department works, take at the department’s work program in the consent agenda for the December 1 meeting. You’re reading Charlottesville Community Engagement. Let’s have another Patreon-fueled shout-out: Charlottesville 350 is the local chapter of a national organization that seeks to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Charlottesville 350 uses online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions to oppose new coal, oil and gas projects, and build 100% clean energy solutions that work for all.

But what role can non-urbanized areas play? The Central Virginia Regional Housing Partnership led a panel discussion on November 16 to discuss the challenges. One of the biggest is money. (watch the event)“When you talk about funding for affordable housing, you think of urban,” said Colleen Fisher, the executive director of the Council for Affordable and Rural Housing. In fact, the main federal agency most people associate with the topic is called the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Fisher reminded the audience that the U.S. Department of Agriculture also offers federal support through their Rural Housing Service, but the program isn’t funded at high levels. One step localities can take is an assessment of what’s currently in the rural area.“We need ample resources to preserve our dedicated affordable housing stock in rural Virginia,” said Jonathan Knopf, the senior research associate for Housing Forward Virginia. “We have a lot of low-income housing tax credit properties that were the first and generation LIHTC properties. And a lot of that stuff is reaching the end of their affordability terms and so we need resources for housing providers to come in and lock in the affordability of that assisted multifamily stock.” Those credits are issued by the Virginia Housing Development Authority. Knopf said one challenge for rural areas is competition for those credits from urban areas. “It’s tough to break from this either-or resource conversation and I think we need to move to a both-and framework for housing resources across the Commonwealth so our rural rent relief programs don’t get left behind,” Knopf said. Taking inventoryGreene County has 146 LIHTC units at four properties. Louisa has 115 units in three developments. Nelson has 159 units in three properties. Albemarle has 1,089 units, most of which are in the urban area around Charlottesville except 34 units reserved for seniors in Scottsville. There are currently no LIHTC properties in Fluvanna. . Jesse Rutherford is a member of the Nelson County Board of Supervisors. He says the cost of housing used to be affordable in rural communities, but what he calls overregulation in land use and building codes in the past few decades is a problem.“You can’t add regulation and expect it to get cheaper,” Rutherford said. “In the last 15, 20, 25 years we’ve seen the collapse of affordable housing in the rural area. I think there’s definitely some low-hanging fruit as it relates to zoning form or some certain by-right density. As we know in the urban context, same as the rural, you can’t use the word affordable without density following it.” Rutherford wants zoning ordinances to be altered to reduce setbacks, which he said renders land unusable for more housing units. Knopf said the cost of labor and building materials is drastically increasing the cost of housing and some form of subsidization is required. He said a balance of tools can be used to produce more units and preserve existing ones. “We don’t need rocket science or fancy things to solve so many of these issues,” Knopf said. “In many cases it’s just dedicating the right funding and fixing our existing policies and regulations especially zoning and a lot of things Jesse talked about to make things work. And try to get the economic side and the supply-chain side and the labor market side at least moving in the right direction to correct some of the paths we’ve been on in the past couple of decades.” Fisher said members of her organization report construction costs keep rising.“Just because we’re in a rural area doesn’t mean that things are cheaper and some people have that opinion because you’re building in a rural community that it’s going to cost you less,” Fisher said. “That’s not necessarily true.” One factor is labor. Keith Smith is the chair of the Central Virginia Regional Housing Partnership. He cited one statistic from the Bureau of Labor Statistics reviewed by the National Association of Home Builders. (via HousingWire) “According to national data, we are anywhere between 300,000 to 400,000 thousand construction workers short per month,” Smith said. “We’re going to recover from the material costs. I’ve been building developments for three and a half decades. This goes up and down. It’s going to take many, many decades to work through the labor force.”To review the rest of the event, you can watch the whole thing on the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission’s YouTube page. Leave a comment either there or here to weigh in.

Connectivity and Productivity: A Discussion With Author and Speaker, Phil Simon

Changes in technical breakthroughs and evolving skill needs are shaping the nature of the workplace of the future. While the pandemic did not fundamentally alter the way people cooperated, it did speed up the pace of change. This resulted in a faster adoption of the concept of remote work.   With the world adjusting to a new life after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, how do we best utilize the tools that we have so that we can continue our levels of productivity even in remote working situations?   In this episode, Alexander McCaig discusses this issue with Phil Simon, a keynote speaker, adviser, and Zoom and Slack educator. He is also the author of eleven non-fiction works, the most recent of which is Reimagining Collaboration: Slack, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and the Post-Covid World of Work.   Adjustments in the Workplace   According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of Americans working remotely more than doubled from around 30 percent to 60 percent in March 2020, and organizations began embracing new collaboration platforms such as Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom as part of the adjustment process as a result of this increase.    At the start of 2020, few people would be familiar with the names of even one of these tools, much alone all of them. Several of us are now working remotely as a consequence of COVID-19, and Zoom has been so widely used that it has become a verb: to "Zoom" means to communicate using video conferencing technology.   When businesses were forced to close and employees were required to wear masks, just a few businesses were allowed to continue operations as usual. The vast majority of people were entirely unprepared for the enormous changes that were about to take place in their lives. When it came to internal communication, they continued to rely on email as well as on typical corporate processes and attitudes.   A New Age of Productivity   To cope with COVID-19's repercussions on corporate organizations, employers, human resource managers, and consultants were obliged to think creatively about how they might implement a remote work strategy. Businesses had an urgent need to alter these barriers in dealing with the international economic instability caused by the virus.   If a shift to a new system is the path moving forward, what possible methods can businesses use to better utilize the tools that we currently have in this day and age?   Phil Simon suggests that companies should start embracing the Hub-Spoke model of collaboration. This model is a technique of distribution wherein a centralized "hub" operates. From the hub, products are sent outward to smaller groups known as spokes for further storage and delivery.   With this model, it aims to help firms significantly increase staff productivity, simplify current business procedures, and provide the basis for subsequent machine-learning and artificial intelligence advances.   The hub may be thought of as a meta-organization that functions in parallel to established innovation laboratories. Employees at the innovation-hub can connect informally over the web and work freely on innovation to bolster the firm's performance.   Out with the Old, In the New?   Efficiency should not be dependent on one factor alone. While the hub-spokes model creates a more systematic approach in revamping business models to fit the current situation, it is best to have it hand-in-hand with tried and tested organizational techniques.   By adopting particular initiatives and establishing a culture that supports their virtual workforce, executives may boost their teams' performance output and engagement. They must build and sustain a culture of trust, as well as modernize leadership communication methods and procedures in order to properly educate virtual personnel.    Additionally, team members must be encouraged to share leadership. Finally, executives must establish and conduct frequent alignment checks to ensure that virtual workers adhere to the organization's cultural values, including their commitment to its goals.   All of these procedures begin with the realization that team formation will be significantly different with remote members, demanding the creation of new leadership strategies, communication routines, and tools.   Final Thoughts   In a world where social distancing and remote work has become the new normal, it is now more important than ever to make good use of the current technologies we have to be just as productive as before the pandemic hit the globe.In Simon's concluding statements, he deems it important that for a collaborative system to work, employees must be willing to commit to the shift fully. Problems will surely arise when employees refuse to use certain technologies because they either find it too complicated or too time-consuming to actually learn new things instead of going the more traditional route of working.   The willingness to change is always the first step towards growth. Just as the world has changed, we must also be willing to adapt to this change. Resistance will always be a hindrance to progress, just as the refusal to learn denies a person the chance to be more efficient and productive.   It is part of TARTLE's vision to create a world where knowledge is shared and problems are solved through a collective and collaborative effort. We believe that teamwork is power, and collaboration is the key to progress. The power is back in your hands.   What's your data worth? www.tartle.co   TCAST is brought to you by TARTLE.

The price tag of Thanksgiving will be up in 2021. Recent US Bureau of Labor Statistics said that food prices at home are up 5.4% over the past 12 months. With inflation still a concern for Americans, putting that turkey on the table next week will not look the same as it has in recent years. Producers and processors were already dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the year, but fighting through this inflation is another challenge around the November holiday. On this week's MEAT+POULTRY podcast, Beth Breeding, vice president of communications and marketing for the National Turkey Federation, discusses turkey production trends. Breeding describes how turkey farmers and producers tried to navigate the amount of turkey consumers were consuming during this COVID year and whether this is just a blip or the new normal. She also explains what the turkey industry faced during COVID-19 and how it's adapted over 2020 and 2021. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/meatpoultry-podcast/message

10.4 million—that's the number of jobs that are currently unfilled in the U.S. economy as of September, according to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That's not much different than the record high of 10.9 million openings that were recorded back in July. As vaccinations have increased, and the economy has continued to open up, employers have been finding it incredibly difficult to find workers to fill jobs. Economists are calling it The Great Resignation—this phenomenon of people exiting the labor force in droves, and employers struggling to fill their openings. Adam and Cameron examine The Great Resignation and what it may portend for the economy.And then in 2nd segment the two discuss the billions of dollars Americans spend each year in the growing market for pet food.

My guest today is Nicholas Fett, CTO of Tellor. Tellor was launched in 2019 by a U.S.-based team with the aim to address the oracle problem on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain. Tellor is an Ethereum-based, decentralized, secure oracle for decentralized finance (DeFi) decentralized applications (DApps). Tellor is a decentralized oracle that provides price data on Ethereum. Tellor uses game theory and crypto-economic incentives to maintain the security of the system, similar to how layer ones have harnessed the power of these methods to reach consensus. Tellor is decentralized and currently provides a price feed every 10 minutes. The speed and potential costs are the areas of concern, but it is decentralized and expensive to censor or manipulate the data. The economic incentives are also set up properly to provide a proper liveness guarantee even in times of stress on the Ethereum network. Nicholas Fett is an economist, developer, and founder at Tellor, a decentralized oracle on the Ethereum network. Former positions include an economist at the US CFTC, the federal regulator for derivatives and cryptocurrencies, where he studied market structure of derivatives markets and implications of new technologies. He then went on to found Daxia, a derivatives protocol focusing on a truly decentralized architecture. He received an Ethereum foundation grant in 2018 to study security features of oracles and their potential uses in scaling and financial products. He then used this knowledge to build Tellor, a crypto economically secured, censorship-resistant focused oracle. In our conversation we cover Tellor, decentralized oracles and the importance of data, the rising cost of goods, how the CFTC works, and much more. We begin our conversation by discussing how Nick got into crypto and his time at the Bureau of Labor Statistics. We continue our conversation by discussing the CFTC and why Bitcoin is regulated by the CFTC. We also discuss the power struggles between government agencies for regulatory oversight and the impact that has on broader society. A very interesting topic of discussion we talked about centered around how the rising cost of goods will impact the derivatives markets and forecasting models. Our conversation flows into what are oracles and Tellor. Nick discusses the importance of data and oracles to DeFi and how Tellor is prioritizing decentralizing data collection. Nick does an excellent job at explaining how oracles work and the current vulnerabilities of oracles. Another topic of discussion that was very interesting was how oracles will facilitate more granular data sets to give a clearer picture to real-world problems like inflation. Our final discussion topic centered around the applications of bringing real-world data on-chain. --- ParaSwap: If you want to make a swap at the best price across the DeFi market, check out https://untoldstories.link/paraswap.

Millions of lost positions have yet to return to the job market but there are near-record job openings and job growth has been slower than expected in recent months. Enhanced unemployment benefits ended nationwide on Labor Day, and even sooner in many states. So far, evidence suggests benefits didn't play a big role in sidelining workers.Other factors are at play, according to economists. They include Covid health risks, early retirements, care duties, built-up savings, and other frictions. On the surface, conditions may seem ripe for a boom in the U.S. labor market.There are still 5 million fewer jobs than before the pandemic but job openings are near record highs. And hourly pay has risen, in some sectors by more than 10% in a year. Meanwhile, enhanced federal unemployment benefits ended on Labor Day (or sooner) and kids are largely back in the classroom. Both enhanced jobless pay and distance learning, it was thought, had been roadblocks keeping people from returning to work.However, that boom hasn't materialized in recent months — at least, not at the rate, many expected. Job growth slowed in September after surging in the spring and early summer, and the labor force shrank.CovidHealth risks associated with the ongoing Covid pandemic have clearly played a role in recent months, according to economists.Job growth slowed in August and September when caseloads were spiking due to the delta variant. (There were 366,000 and 194,000 new payrolls added those months, respectively, compared to 1.1 million in July and 962,000 in June.)  Early retirementsEarly retirements have also reduced the pool of available workers. Older adults are at higher risk of severe illness and death from Covid. They may have opted to start drawing Social Security and live off their nest egg instead of taking a risk at work, economists said. Grandparents may have also offered to watch their grandkids and ease childcare duties for working parents.Care responsibilitiesCare responsibilities have made it tough for some workers — especially those who can't work from home — to come off the sidelines. For example, many schools reopened for in-person learning for the new academic year, helping ease childcare constraints for parents. But Covid outbreaks have led to sporadic quarantine periods that may stress parents' ability to hold or commit to a steady job.SavingsHouseholds across the income scale have been able to amass higher savings relative to pre-pandemic levels. Cash balances were up 50% for the typical household in July 2021 relative to two years earlier, according to the JPMorgan Chase Institute.“People might feel with a little extra buffer on hand, that they have a little more time to wait,” said Fiona Greig, co-president of the institute. “They don't have to find a job this moment.”WagesThere may be near-record job openings — but that doesn't necessarily mean businesses are paying a wage workers will accept.ages have risen more than $1 an hour, or 4.5%, in the past year across all private-sector jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Some sectors are up more — leisure and hospitality pay is up 11%, to $18.95 an hour, for example. The Bureau attributes the upward pressure on earnings to a rising demand for labor. It will take timeIt will also take a while to work out some of the frictions that have built up in the labor market in the past year and a half, economists said.Jobless workers have had ample time during the pandemic to reassess their working lives and what they want from a job. Some may opt to switch careers. The available jobs may also not be in a worker's prior occupational field or in their geographical area.Get Paul Lawrence Vann's five FREE financial tips for improving your finances  https://bit.ly/3jNrWHe

The annual inflation rate in the US edged up to a 13-year high of 5.4% in September of 2021 from 5.3% in August and above market expectations of 5.3%. Main upward pressure came from cost of shelter (3.2% vs 2.8% in August); food (4.6% vs 3.7%, the highest since December of 2011), namely food at home (4.5% vs 3%); new vehicles (8.7% vs 7.6%); and energy (24.8% vs 25%). On the other hand, prices eased for used cars and trucks (24.4% percent vs 31.9%); transportation services (4.4% vs 4.6%); apparel (3.4% vs 4.2%); and medical care services (0.9% vs 1%). On a monthly basis, consumer prices advanced 0.4%, above forecasts of 0.3%, with the indexes for food and shelter contributing more than half of the monthly increase. The core index which excludes food and energy went up 0.2% month over month and 4% year over year, the same as in August and in line with forecasts. |Source: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics|

The initial challenges of 2020 have continued into 2021 for many. With pandemic-related deaths, massive job loss, and burnout on the rise- work was deprioritized on the scale of importance. As news coverage of civil unrest, political polarization, and major events became normal, we as a society were challenged to reflect beyond the scope of our 9-5 life. Fast forward and now we're seeing the outcomes of this shift in perspective: “The Great Resignation”. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly four million Americans quit their jobs in July 2021 alone. The resignation rate in the U.S. is now at a two-decade high, with more than 11 million jobs open. One recent study found that 95% of workers would consider a job change. Harvard Business Review noted that employees between the ages of 30 and 45 have had the greatest jump in resignation rates, with an average increase of more than 20% between 2020 and 2021. This reflects more than just “The Great Resignation”. This is a state of discontent. Join us for this episode, as we dive deeper into what is taking place in the workforce and the science behind it.

Advisors on This Week's Show Brian Kilb Steve Giles Chris Evers (with Max Hoelzl and Joel Dresang) Week in Review (October 11-15, 2021) Significant Economic Indicators & Reports Monday No major announcements Tuesday Employers reined in on job openings and hiring in August, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The number of help-wanted posts declined nearly 6% from a record 11.1 million openings in July. The 10.4 million openings in August still were up 62% from the year before and compared to an average of 4.7 million openings a month in 20 years of data. Job openings declined at hotels and restaurants, where hiring also declined in August amid concerns over the delta variant of the COVID-19 virus. Job separations, including layoffs and dismissals, were on par with July, but the rate of workers quitting their jobs reached a record high, suggesting employees were confident they could find new work. Wednesday The broadest measure of inflation showed prices continued to rise in August. The Bureau of Labor Statistics said its Consumer Price Index rose 0.4% in September, with costs for shelter and food accounting for more than half the increase. Year to year, headline inflation rose 5.4%, tied with June and July for the highest since 2008. Gas prices were up 42% since September 2020; used car prices rose 24%. Excluding prices for volatile food and energy items, the core CPI rose a more moderate 0.2% from August and was up 4% from September 2020, down from a 30-year high of 4.5% in June. Based on CPI data, the Social Security Administration announced a 5.9% adjustment to benefits in 2022. That was the biggest raise for Social Security recipients since a 7.4% boost in 1982. Thursday The four-week moving average for initial unemployment claims fell for the first time in three weeks to its lowest level since the pandemic. Claims averaged 334,250 in the most recent reading from the Labor Department. That was 10% below the 54-year average but still 60% above where it was just before the pandemic. Altogether, 3.6 million Americans claimed jobless benefits in the most recent week, down 13% from the week before as more than 355,000 dropped from the rolls through expiring pandemic relief programs. The year before, claims reached 24.9 million. Inflation on the wholesale level remained elevated in September, according to the Producer Price Index. The Bureau of Labor Statistics said higher costs for goods, including a 3.9% rise in gasoline prices, accounted for 80% of the increase in the PPI. Even so, the 0.5% gain was the lowest since December. The core index number, which excludes volatile prices for foods, energy and trade services, rose 0.2% from August and was up 5.9% from September 2020. In August, the core PPI rose 6.3% from the year before. Friday With consumer spending driving about 70% of the U.S. gross domestic product, a 0.7% gain in retail spending in September offered further evidence of continued economic growth. All but two of 13 retail categories increased sales in September, including gasoline stations, where sales rose 1.8% from August, boosted by higher prices. The Commerce Department said overall retail sales rose 13.9% from September 2020, led by a 38.2% increase at gas stations. Since the 2020 recession, sales recovery has been uneven among categories, with sales at online retailers rising at four times the rate of bars and restaurants. A preliminary October reading of consumer sentiment suggested continued suppressed expectations amid lingering coronavirus concerns and supply-chain disruptions. The survey-based index from the University of Michigan has been near its early-pandemic lows for the last three months, which a Michigan economist said should dampen consumer spending into 2022.

  Landaas & Company newsletter  October edition now available. Advisors on This Week's Show Bob Landaas Kyle Tetting Dave Sandstrom Kendall Bauer (with Max Hoelzl, Joel Dresang, engineered by Jason Scuglik) Week in Review (Oct. 4-8, 2021) SIGNIFICANT ECONOMIC INDICATORS & REPORTS Monday The Commerce Department reported a 1.2% rise in manufacturing orders in August, the 15th increase in 16 months. Gains were led by a high demand in commercial aircraft and parts, but even excluding transportation equipment, orders rose 0.5% from July and were up 14.2% from August 2020. Core capital goods orders, a proxy for business investments, rose 0.6% for the month and were up 164% from the year before. Tuesday The U.S. trade deficit grew 4.4% in August to a record gap of $73.3 billion. The deficit, which detracts from gross domestic product, resulted from the value of imports rising at a faster rate than exports, a sign that the U.S. economy is recovering quicker from the pandemic than those of its trading partners. Through the first eight months of 2021, the trade gap grew 33.7% from the year before as imports rose by 21.2% and exports increased by 17.5%. The U.S. services sector continued expanding in September, up slightly from its August pace, according to the Institute for Supply Management. The trade group's services index showed the 16th consecutive month of growth, expanding all but two of the latest 140 months. Purchase managers surveyed for the index repeated ongoing concerns for constraints they say are affecting supply continuity, including uneven access to materials, labor and logistics. Wednesday No major reports Thursday The four-week moving average for initial unemployment claims rose for the second week in a row but remained below the 54-year average. Average claims were at 344,000, up 64% from a 52-year low just before the pandemic. The Labor Department said 4.2 million Americans were receiving unemployment benefits in total in the latest week, down 17% from the week before as temporary pandemic-related assistance programs phase out. The Federal Reserve reported that consumer credit card debt rose in August for the fourth month in a row. With consumer spending driving about 70% of U.S. economic activity, credit card debt can signal consumers' ability and willingness to spend. Since peaking just before the pandemic, such debt is still down $96 billion or 8.7%, unadjusted for inflation. Credit card debt in August was about at the level it stood four years ago. It took almost 10 years for credit card debt to recover from the Great Recession. Friday Employers added 194,000 jobs in September, down from the 561,000 average monthly gain so far in 2021. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that payroll jobs remained 5 million or 3.3% behind the level just before the pandemic. Transportation-and-warehousing was the only major employment category that had more jobs than before February 2020. A separate household survey showed the unemployment rate dropped to 4.8% September, down from the record 14.8% in April 2020 but still up from a 52-year low of 3.5% in February 2020. One sign that the delta variant of COVID-19 was causing some hesitancy among potential job seekers was a drop in re-entrants to the labor force, down 198,000 individuals (8%) from August. MARKET CLOSINGS FOR THE WEEK Nasdaq – 14580, up 13 points or 0.1% Standard & Poor's 500 – 4391, up 34 points or 0.8% Dow Jones Industrial – 34747, up 420 points or 1.2% 10-year U.S. Treasury Note – 1.61%, up 0.13 point Send us a question for our next podcast.

4 Million Americans quit their jobs in July of 2021 , according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. What this means is that you have a tremendous opportunity to upgrade your talent base in your organization.  The pandemic has magnified people's career wounds in a way that every business will be impacted.  While many reasons are given as to the cause of this mass exodus, the root of the fall out is that the people leaving are no longer in alignment with the company's values.  Value alignment is now more critical than ever to attract and hire people. Because when people align with the actual company values, they find meaning & discover their purpose.  And their purpose is far more important to them than your profits. Today is a special episode due to the massive number of requests from our audience about this little problem called the great resignation We discuss: Why it is critical to own your company values How to prosper in Hiring - TODAY! Challenge today? My people are getting poached! We have come to a point where people want meaning & purpose in their lives. Perks, compensation & benefits no longer matter People are questioning their “why” Imbalance Stress & heartache More flexibility is not the real issue Inc Article https://www.inc.com/jessica-stillman/great-resignation-work-meaning-esther-perel.html Demonstrating meaning & the company cares about them as “human beings” Why is this important to the company? Who's leaving? Mid- career employees have the highest resignation rates! (30-45) You are positioned to heal a person's career wounds.  When you align with values and provide a solution to heal, both parties WIN People are expecting win-win relationships with their employers The Great Opportunity! Easiest time in history to engage A-Players! Raise the performance bar in your organization 4 Steps to Win-Win Talent in this Great Resignation Get solid on your Values Key to attracting top performers Who you are how you lead how people act  Understand your Recruiting Process Recruiting is how you identify people & get people to talk to you. Just because you recruited someone great, doesn't mean you should hire them Or that they will even accept your job offer What is working today Target and Contact & Reconnect Do not sell, listen Understand your Hiring Process Start with an in depth Discovery call (phone screen) Does this person's desires align with the company  (correctly positioned) Not skills Vision for the environment in which they will excel Timed & structured Interview Values alignment first Skills second (working session) Nurture a proactive flow  - allow the person to have a voice in what happens next What would you like to do next? Heal the Career Wound Growth, Content of work, Management Value Alignment Progression, learning, flexibility If you cannot provide a path to the individual, don't hire Someone else will thrive in the role You will be just a paycheck (if the person joins)  Key Takeaways -Value: The “Great Resignation” is real and you need to be capitalizing on the opportunity that has been presented to us! Get tight on the company values… They are the key to a successful hire Don't confuse a recruiting process as a hiring process. They are two separate activities.  Rick's Links: LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rick-girard-07722/ Company: https://www.stridesearch.com/ Podcast: https://www.stridesearch.com/hire-power-radio Book: Healing Career Wounds -  https://www.amazon.com/Healing-Career-Wounds-Ridiculously-Successful/dp/173580360X   This show is proudly sponsored by Criteria Corp: https://www.criteriacorp.com/

Best and Worst States for Entrepreneurs “In this analysis, AdvisorSmith examined over 20 indicators of the health of the business environment in states across the nation using data from numerous sources, including the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Small Business Administration. Some of the factors we considered included personal and corporate tax policies, rates of business formation and hiring for new businesses, funding availability, and business survival rates. We ranked all 50 states and the District of Columbia based upon an aggregated score considering all these factors.” The Postal Service said it is changing estimated delivery times for first-class mail as part of it's 10-year strategic plan for improving service. https://www.krem.com/article/news/nation-world/usps-shipping-standards-change-october-1/417-79eb3fc6-9a5d-4f11-a2d7-28e2858317eb “The USPS is changing the standard on how fast you get your mail, with a slowdown that starts Oct. 1. The Postal Service is creating new service standards, which will mean longer first-class mail delivery times and cuts to post office hours. Starting Friday, first class mail may take as long as 5 days to reach destinations in the contiguous US. That's a change from the previous standard of 3 days. USPS said that standard led to an over-reliance on air travel, which is more costly that ground transportation. The Postal Service will increase time‐in‐transit expectations by 1 or 2 days for certain mail that needs to travel longer distances. If you're shipping something within 139 miles, you can expect it to take 2 days. For anything traveling up to 930 miles, expect 3-day shipping. Times go up to 4 or 5 days for anything over 930 miles traveled. Officials say most mail will be unaffected, but they recommend planning ahead and sending first class mail early, if it has to travel far distances.” Leave it to the government to define “improving service” as actually lowering standards of service.

Play Clip: Crazy Aussie Bureaucrat: Play Clip: Virus surge hits New England despite high vaccination rates https://apnews.com/article/coronavirus-pandemic-health-pandemics-vermont-d25aae90b2dda65b3d1c2c0d5d00156c?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP&utm_campaign=SocialFlow “Despite having the highest vaccination rates in the country, there are constant reminders for most New England states of just how vicious the delta variant of COVID-19 is. Hospitals across the region are seeing full intensive care units and staff shortages are starting to affect care. Public officials are pleading with the unvaccinated to get the shots. Health care workers are coping with pent-up demand for other kinds of care that had been delayed by the pandemic. “I think it's clearly frustrating for all of us,” said Michael Pieciak, the commissioner of the Vermont Department of Financial Regulation who monitors COVID-19 statistics for the state. “We want kids to be safe in school, we want parents not to have to worry about their child's education and health.” Even though parts of New England are seeing record case counts, hospitalizations and deaths that rival pre-vaccine peaks, largely among the unvaccinated, the region hasn't seen the impact the delta variant wave has wrought on other parts of the country. According to statistics from The Associated Press, the five states with the highest percentage of a fully vaccinated population are all in New England, with Vermont leading, followed by Connecticut, Maine, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. New Hampshire is 10th. According to the AP data, full vaccination rates across the six New England states range from a high of 69.4% in Vermont to 61.5% in New Hampshire. Despite the relatively high vaccination rates — the U.S. as a whole is averaging 55.5% — there are still hundreds of thousands of people across the region who, for one reason or another, remain unvaccinated and vulnerable to infection. Now, a Rhode Island official said he didn't think the 70% vaccination goal, once touted as the level that would help end the pandemic in the state, is enough. “What we've learned with delta and looking beyond delta, is because that's where our focus is as well, to really reach those levels of vaccination, to give you that true population level protection, you need to be in excess of 90%,” said Tom McCarthy, the executive director of the Rhode Island Department of Health COVID Response Unit.” Note what the AP article goes on to say: “Head of UMass Memorial Health, the largest health system in central Massachusetts, said recently that regional hospitals were seeing nearly 20 times more COVID-19 patients than in June and there isn't an ICU bed to spare. Case counts in Vermont, which has continually boasted about high vaccination and low hospitalization and death rates, are the highest during the pandemic. Hospitalizations are approaching the pandemic peak from last winter and September was Vermont's second-deadliest month during the pandemic. On Sept. 22, Maine had nearly 90 people in intensive care units, a pandemic peak for the state. Maine also recently passed 1,000 deaths since the start of the pandemic.” Closing This is Gabriel Rench with Crosspolitic News.

In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending September 4th, 2021... new FHFA rules on the foreclosure bidding process, the for-sale homes needed for a “normal” market, and the renters who don't think they will ever be homeowners.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. The number of people applying for unemployment has dropped again. The Department of Labor reported that 340,000 people filed for state claims last week. That's a decline of 14,000 from the week before and the lowest it's been since the start of the pandemic. Continuing claims are also down, to a total of 2.75 million, and the total for all 8 state and federal programs is 12.2 million. That's down from 30 million at the peak of the pandemic. (1)More disappointing is the August report on hiring. The Wall Street Journal had estimated an additional 720,000 jobs, but the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a disappointing 235,000 new jobs. That's the lowest number we've seen in more than a half a year. Job growth suffered the biggest decline in the retail sector. New government jobs were also down, along with jobs in the construction industry. The official unemployment rate is currently 5.2%, but of course that doesn't include people who are not looking for a job. (2)Meanwhile, home prices recorded a third month of record-high price growth. The latest S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Home Price Index is up 18.6% in June, on an annual basis. The 20-city index is ever higher, at 19.1%. S&P DJI investing strategist Craig Lazzara says the data is consistent with the hypothesis that the pandemic drove buyers from urban areas to the suburbs. (3)Pending home sales dipped a little in July. The National Association of Realtors says they were down 1.8%. MarketWatch economists had expected a slight increase. NAR's chief economist Lawrence Yun says: “The market may be starting to cool slightly, but at the moment there is not enough supply to match the demand.” (4)Consumers are also feeling more anxious about the economy. The Conference Board says that consumer confidence fell to a six-month low of 113.8 in August. The worry list includes inflation and the spread of the Delta variant, although there's some evidence that Covid caseloads have peaked in some of the hardest hit areas. (5)Mortgage Rates Mortgage rates are holding steady. Freddie Mac says the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage stayed the same this last week at 2.87%. The 15-year was up one basis point to 2.18%. (6) In other news making headlines…New Rules on Foreclosure Bidding ProcessOwner-occupants are getting more time to buy foreclosures before investors are allowed to big on them. The Federal Housing Finance Agency announced that it is extending the amount of time that owners have to view and buy foreclosures from 20 days to 30 days. It's part of the First Look Program first launched in 2009 to help promote owner occupancy and stabilize neighborhoods.The FHFA's acting director, Sandra Thompson says: “Extending the amount of time owner-occupants have to bid on an REO property, without competition, is especially important for neighborhood preservation while the supply of homes for sale is severely limited.”Housing Gap is 1.5 Homes Short of NormalThe housing market needs another 1.5 million for-sale homes to help fill the inventory gap. Analysts at Morgan Stanley say that would get us back to a housing market “normal.” That applies to both the resale market and the building market. (7)Morgan Stanley strategists say that inventory is lagging about three years behind demand. And the number of homes needed could be as high as 5 million, depending on how you add it all up.That imbalance is reflected in the rate of home price growth, although DataTrek analyst Nicholas Colas says: “While house prices are certainly trending above long-run growth rates, they are not yet as elevated as 2005 on an 8-year trailing appreciation basis.”Renters Who Say They'll Always Be RentersMany renters hope to someday buy their own homes, but according to a LendingTree survey, half of them don't think that will ever happen. (8) LendingTree surveyed 2,500 people and 83% said they'd prefer to own their own homes, but 48% said they have doubts about their ability to buy.So what's keeping them from buying a home?More than half said they can't afford a down payment. About a third said home prices are too high or their credit scores are not good enough. A quarter of them said they don't have a stable job right now or they are not sure “where” to settle down. Some of the other reasons include student loan debt and plans to get married first.That's it for today. Check the show notes for links.

“Food is creative; food is alchemy; food is inventing.” - Donna Pace   Episode Description: Two elements need to be woven together to impact the future of food- food innovation and a business to serve as its vehicle. The call to change the food system is urgent, and it commands the need to seek ways to improve on these elements fast. However, these are two of the most challenging aspects of development. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 20 percent of new businesses fail in the first two years, and only a quarter lasts up to 15 years. We need to shift these numbers to work at our advantage.    This week, Justine sits with Donna Pace, a mentor, life coach, and creative problem-solving trainer. She sees herself as a CreACTivist, one who actively participates in creating a global community of creative innovators.    Tune in as Donna discusses how we can build and support regenerative food businesses to fulfill their mission. Learn how to upgrade your communication systems, address communication barriers, and keep a sense of authenticity and integrity. As a provocateur, Donna also shares two definite processes and resources that can help entrepreneurs succeed in their future projects. Future trends allow us to see how tomorrow looks like-- and that means, we hold the power to create a better food system now.     Connect with Donna: Donna Pace is a human design practitioner, mentor and life coach. She is a master lateral thinker, a six hat master trainer, six value medals master trainer, a FOURSIGHT (USA) certified trainer, and a creative problem solving trainer.    Donna runs a consultancy and a training organization that essentially dedicate time and energy to creativity, innovation, future trends, and value decoding and leadership. She is an agile provocateur, who enjoys waking people up and a person who enjoys exploration and discovery. She is a visiting professor at the UIB (University of the Balearic islands), and also the first Ambassador to the "Fundación por la Creativación" in Catalonya, together with (superstar creative) chef Ferrán Adría. They have reached thousands of school children and teachers in their quest to make creativity a mainstream language.   Donna's commitment is to the world of ideas, to the language of creativity - as a systematic rigorous discipline. She considers herself a CreACTivist. She believes in a global community that can go from "What is" to "What can be", which is why she is an explorer of the future and future trends. She believes that we need a "global language" that brings us together as a human race, as we totter on the very threshold of a new beginning. As we REset, REthink and REwire our minds, societies, governments, education, Donna believes that we need a higher order communication system. And that is one based on respect, tolerance, co-creation, collaboration and contribution.    Website  Facebook  Youtube  LinkedIn    Connect with Justine:  Website Facebook Instagram LinkedIn   Connect with NextGenChef: Website  Facebook  Twitter  Instagram  YouTube NextGenChef App   Episode Highlights: 03:38 Upgrade Your Perfection Of Communication 10:36 The Errors Of Perception 12:54 Skill Sets And Cognition 18:34 The Creativity in Difference 21:29 Focusing On Futurism 29:57 A Process Of Evolution

In 2012, Annie launched her first company, the cold-pressed juice brand Suja Juice, which she scaled into such a success that Coca-Cola and Goldman Sachs each bought multi-million-dollar stakes (!). And now her second business, the clean beauty brand Lawless Beauty, is on a similar trajectory.
