The Portland Trail Blazers lost to the Dallas Mavericks, 132-112, on Wednesday night. The already shorthanded Blazers played without Robert Covington (knee) and Nassir Little (shoulder) and they looked like a team missing all the NBA caliber forwards on the roster. It was ugly early and ended ugly late. But who cares. Let's talk about trades. According to Michael Scotto of Hoops Hype, multiple teams have interest in Covington and while the veteran forward might not net the Blazers a first round pick in return there is certainly a market for RoCo and that might work in Portland's favor as the Feb. 10 trade deadline approaches. Plus, Detroit has interest in Norman Powell and a Powell for Jerami Grant swap is a possibility, according to Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report. That's pretty intriguing!

Whether you're looking at your first investment or raising your first fund, join me and let's build that portfolio one square foot at a time. Or ladies and gentlemen, my name's Jessica gala. You're listening to working capital the real estate podcast. My guest today is Tim Palazzo. He's the co-founder and CEO of stack source. A tech enabled commercial real estate financing platform.   Stack source has now completed this hot off the presses over half a billion of commercial financing transactions and they're in growth mode. They are reinventing the stagnant mortgage brokerage model with the tech enabled marketplace slash service. Tim speaks from experience when he says that the best possible financing for commercial multifamily real estate deal doesn't have to be painful. Stack source brings transparency to commercial financing. Tim, how you doing today?   Tim (1m 1s): I'm doing great, Jesse. Thanks for having me on.   Jesse (1m 4s): Well, thanks for being here. I was going to say it in the bio here, but you might as well give listeners a little bit of a background because it seems that prior to stack source, you were in the tech space. It looks like Facebook, Google. Maybe you could talk a little bit for listeners about your background in real estate and how you got to the place that we're at today.   Tim (1m 26s): Yeah. Thanks so much, Jesse, for the opportunity. So real estate is one of these things that could have been, you know, in my blood, so to speak, right. I had an immigrant grandfather who late in his life after saving up from his union job, started buying like a couple of commercial properties in his town, in New Jersey. And then my dad was full into it right away as a, a leasing broker in New York city. And he became a managing director for a boutique leasing brokers that was then bought out by CVRE, which is now the number one, leasing brokerage in the city.   And I interned at a real estate company when I was studying finance in college. And that would have been the natural path is to follow this, you know, generational real estate path. I always loved technology companies. I loved tech and smartphones and software programs and video games. And that's the stuff that really made me excited. And so when I came out of college, I went and worked for tech companies specifically in advertising technology for several years before coming back to real estate, seeing this opportunity to merge technology and software with the real estate industry.   And I saw a spot that I thought I was really needed, and that's why I found it stack source.   Jesse (2m 46s): Awesome. So we talked a little bit before, before the show here. So you, where are you originally from New York and now you're in Florida. Is, is that right?   Tim (2m 55s): Yeah, so I, I moved to Florida during the pandemic actually had a growing amount of small children running around the floor of our two bedroom apartment in New Jersey, just outside of New York city. And so we made the move since I was working from home anyway, and our team was increasingly remote across the U S to move down to a place that would be really good for the family. Give us a little bit more space and be a pretty good work from home environment here too. That's great.   Jesse (3m 25s): So for, for listeners stack source, what was that kind of the Genesis of, of this platform and how you, you know, what you've been up to with, we said at the outset over a half a billion so far in commercial transactions?   Tim (3m 41s): Yeah. Well, I came to this idea for stack source because I happened to visit a real estate tech meetup several years ago in New York with a couple of friends that were involved in the real estate industry. And my eyes were really open to that time to, you know, taking this passion for software and technology and coming back towards the real estate industry and what was going on. And at that time there were some really cool startups in data and getting access to real estate data, cool startups in like transactions and keeping track of your portfolio as landlords.   And I started to see a bit of a FinTech and really online real estate investing was the only thing that was starting to happen there with, you know, fundraise and Realty mogul. And some of these companies that you can invest passively into real estate deals online. And this lit up my eyes to, okay, well, who's building the inverse of that platform, who is for a property owner for an investor. That's a sponsor, that's raising capital. Who's giving them a menu of financing options. Who's providing them with access and transparency into what are all the sources of capital that they can tap on a deal by deal basis.   And that seems like a pretty clear and obvious idea to me. And maybe I had, because I was further from that part of the industry and, and I was coming in as an outsider. It just seems so clear and easy and obvious. And I think to people that were in the industry for a long time, commercial lenders for decades are commercial mortgage brokers together. They were too close and they saw how hard the transactions were and how hard these relationships were to navigate when the truth is actually something in the middle. There is technology needed for having transparency into financing, but there's just huge expertise in this human touch and relationships are valuable too.   And so stack source ended up being a tech enabled commercial finance that we have capital advisors and teams of capital advisors across the country at this point that provide that skill in underwriting and that negotiation and that structuring ability to put commercial financing deals together. But there's a transparency to our platform where you can see your financing options and you can easily compare them and the is faster and more efficient.   Jesse (5m 60s): That's interesting. So with these, these different competitors that you kind of saw in the market, what was the, what was kind of the value add or the, the distinguishing aspect of stack source as it, you know, with who's currently in the market?   Tim (6m 14s): Sure. Well, the speed and the transparency of the process has really been the focus for us since day one. When I started working on this as a platform, it was myself and a couple of software engineers saying, Hey, how, how much can we automate in this process of finding the right financing options and getting loan quotes? You know, that was the first thing is like, how easy can we make it to get loan quotes on a commercial property? And it kind of showed us what are the edges of what can be automated and what can be made instant versus what are, where are the human pieces of this process?   And I think if you were someone that started a commercial mortgage brokerage in the 1970s or eighties, you probably adapted to email in the nineties and two thousands, but what other technology have these guys really had adopted because they're run just by the most successful broker at the, the, at the firm. And they're, they're going to be the best sales guys, but they're not going to be the innovators in operations, in technology. And that's led to these traditional commercial mortgage brokers to be under-indexed on research and development to be under-indexed on this innovation and this technology and what it ends up being for the, for commercial mortgage brokers and for financing advisors is they don't have access to the tools that they could.   They don't have access to the tools and the data and automation in a way that can make them more efficient. So it's speed, it's transparency. We're now working on a lot more features and functionality on our platform, and there's a lot coming on our platform, but it's always been this speed and transparency from day one   Jesse (7m 52s): Around. That makes sense. So, in terms of the, the actual kind of, from when you started inception of this, to where we're at today, it's obviously been a crazy last 18 to 24 months. What have you seen in the capital markets or change, or how has that evolved over the, the last, you know, the last little while?   Tim (8m 14s): It's interesting, because for the last decade, we've had low interest rates, right? And only now in 2022, are we starting to have economists predict the federal reserve in the, in the U S is going to start to pull back on some of this quantitative easing, and they're going to start to raise interest rates, there's internet, there's an inevitable interest rate rise coming. We're still in this low interest rate environment for now. Now certainly the pandemic made things a little bit more choppy with during the pandemic.   And in the first phase of the pandemic, we saw leverage start to be pulled back, especially from banks and more conservative lending institutions. They started back leverage. They started adding more capital reserve requirements. You know, that's, that's largely washed away by this stage of the pandemic where the underwriting has smoothed out. Again, we're at full leverage, not only full leverage for permanent financing, but we're seeing really healthy leverage on value, add and construction deals as well, where you can, there's a lot of dry powder out there in the forms of bank balance sheets in the form of debt funds.   Everybody's waiting for interest rates to rise, but there's this kind of golden opportunity right now to lock into a 10 year term with a loan, you know, in the low threes or to get construction financing. That's a, that's a really healthy leverage. I think it'll be interesting to see what happens to both cap rates and interest rates as inflation continues to rear its head and see how long it rears its head and how strongly there's going to be in interest rates. But it hasn't yet.   Jesse (9m 55s): Yeah. Yeah. It's something that we've constantly been talking about in the, over the last little while. I know, you know, you have the Powell that was, I think, just in front of Congress to answering questions. So I think it's top of mind for everybody right now, in terms of the actual asset classes themselves, we talked a little bit at the outset commercial and multifamily. Is it all different sub categories within commercial that you guys will lend on?   Tim (10m 21s): Yeah, so, so SAC source won't lend directly on anything. What we do is we act as a portal and a guide and you know, that menu of financing options. So everything you find on our, on our platform is coming from third-party capital sources. So we have built up this national lender lending network of hundreds of banks, credit unions, CMBS shops, you know, the, in the U S the big agencies, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and a lot of debt funds because there's all these, sometimes it's a sidecar fund for some big real estate developer that wants to support other developers.   And the debt part of the stack, many of them are just dedicated debt funds, or even mortgage rates. And you have all these scattered sources of capital, and everybody has their own lending and investment criteria. They are looking at certain asset classes, they're looking at certain parts of the capital stack, maximum leverage and recourse. And there, there are these, you know, multifaceted lending programs where it's a half an hour conversation. If you really want to understand any given capital source, you have to ask about all of this, you know, what are the edges of what you can do and how, how, how do you size your loans?   Do you size them with debt yields? You sized them with LTV, figuring out what might be a match and what projects might be a match for any given number of lenders is this intensive process. If you try to do it manually. So what we've done is we've cataloged all of that. We've put all of that in a database so that you enter a, a loan request and stack source on the front end. And you're instantly matched with algorithmically. Here are your matching lenders now from a human level and a quality and a sponsor quality standpoint, there's some quality control and making sure the right deals are entering our marketplace for our lenders to respond.   But if you're a quality deal and you know, you're underwritten correctly, we can instantly identify which of these capital sources might be a place you might get matched to just a couple of capital sources. If you're working on something really funky. And if you've got a straight down in the middle of multi-family refinance, you're going to get matched to a lot of lenders and you can potentially get an instant agency loan quote.   Jesse (12m 23s): Fair enough. So if you took, say for an example, you took a, an investor, you know, they, they are looking at a a hundred unit apartment building in say, in your neck of the woods in Florida, what can you walk the, walk me through what the process would be like for, for that investor?   Tim (12m 43s): Sure. So we need to know what are the relevant details on the underwriting that any lender or capital source is going to need to know? So property address the, the net operating income, the physical characteristics, when was it built? When was it renovated? What type of framing, all this stuff that would impact a lenders, sizing, underwriting, and pricing of a loan. The idea is you enter that once in the stack source portal, and that's instantly matched to the database of what these different capital sources are looking for. And it also instantly generates a debt offering memorandum still can be made, have changes made later.   We w the stack source team themselves, and our analysts are going to adjust and tweak and add, add data and Siri and the right comps. But those two things are done instantly where, you know, within men, within minutes, the ideas, you know, the types of capital sources and the types of things they can provide, Hey, there's an interesting life insurance company lending on this type of multifamily. And they can only go up to 65 LTV, but hang on, their rates are amazing. Like, yeah, I want to get a 2.8% interest rate.   And I'm interested in, you know, putting that lender in my shopping cart, so to speak. You know, I want to see if that unders interested in working on my deal, that, you know, some, some lenders, some loan programs, like a, like a Freddie Mac, small balance, you can get an instant quote on our platform. And then some of this is like, Hey, it's a life insurance fund. They're going to review. They're actually going to do a lot of diligence. But if I get the loan from them, it's going to be the best interest rate around.   Jesse (14m 15s): Got it. So, in terms of that, you know, that investor, he finds, say that life insurance companies, that that's kind of lending on funky loan, funky, or, you know, more involved loans in this certain area in Florida. And then how does, how does the, how does that get taken to fruition the, through the platform they're connected and then they, they break from the platform, or is it everything is done within the platform?   Tim (14m 40s): Good question. So, first of all, you do get an advocate. That's a human being on the platform. So you're not dropped off into something that's confusing. And especially when you're matching to a bunch of different lenders and they may be asking questions and, and, you know, they they're expecting to see the underwriting in a certain way. So that person that you get to talk to is a capital advisor. And they are professionals that work for stacks, horse across the U S that have been, you know, have decades of experience in lending and commercial mortgage brokerage, and real estate investment.   And they're going to be your advocate through the whole process. So you don't have to talk to, you know, it'd be just as bad that you have to talk to 14 lenders on stack source versus, you know, trying to find those lenders on your own and pitch the deal to them one by one. So there's no pitching all of these lenders separately. You get one capital advisor, you'd answer some questions, you get an advocate. They actually will help you with structuring and finding the best financing sources, maybe challenge you on different ideas that you haven't thought of because there may not just be a senior lender, but there may be a subordinate APOE source that can also add value in your capital stack.   So you get to have a conversation with a capital advisor, they help you go out to market, and then you are getting notifications. When you have new loan quotes and new financing offers in the portal, you get an email notification, you can compare and analyze those very easily within the process. When it comes time to sign the term sheet and deposit, the lender gets to choose their own process, because they're the ones closing funding, your loan. So some of those will have a, an email checklist or, or what have you, you know, but you keep the capital advisor advocating with you throughout the process until close.   Jesse (16m 22s): That's great. So we've talked a lot about over the last few months, a lot about the amount of debt in the market right now, you know, we talked about it, just you and I here briefly on inflation interest rates. W w what we're finding on the investor side is that there is a lot of capital chasing fewer and fewer deals. I'm curious on the flip side of that, on the debt market side, what are you finding is, or is, or are some of the biggest challenges from, from the debt side of things?   Tim (16m 52s): Well, you're right. You're right. There's a lot of money. There's a lot of types of money. That money is going to go full leverage, and it's going to be low rates. So for these capital sources, when they find a good project that they want to back, it it's a competitive market for them to get in to the capital stack, especially if it's multifamily industrial, some of these darlings of the industry, or you could probably throw self storage and a couple other things in there that are performing really well, you know, really from coast to coast.   And so we're seeing that's advantageous for the borrower, not just in rates, but there are negotiable pieces of term sheets right now, from everything from recourse to reserve structuring to leverage that it really slants it in a it's a borrower's market. Right, right now in early 2022, and things can change that change economically. But early 20, 22 is one of the best borrowers markets that we've had.   And that's, that's not just early 2022. You look at 2019 was the largest year of commercial mortgage origination ever. The second largest ever was 2021 and 2022 is not slowing down. As far as the first half of the year, from what we've seen now, inflation some more economic pressure, some bad job reports, something can slow it down quickly, but right now, 2022 at pace could be the record breaking banner year for commercial mortgages.   So it's a competitive, it's a borrower's market right now. People have been gearing up. People geared up for maybe more economic turmoil than we've seen rear its head yet. And so there's this money that needs to go somewhere. It needs to be on deals. And that's just as true on the debt market as is on the equity.   Jesse (18m 43s): Yeah, I mean, we're seeing, we're seeing the exact same thing from, from our vantage point here. And we're finding, you know, some telltale signs for this is we're finding more and more lenders are getting more creative on deals, you know, in, in my area, we're typically very conservative when it comes to debt in general. And now we're finding that, you know, five years ago, there's certain properties that, that wouldn't be lent on. You know, it could be at a host of things, maybe environmental, you know, other, other aspects or variables that lenders are trying to figure out and get more granular to see if they can lend on.   So it sounds like that's, that's happening across the board. And, you know, we just had somebody that on the podcast last week that was speaking to self storage and yeah, another area that I'm sure you're seeing a lot of capital going towards.   Tim (19m 28s): Yeah. And retail, if you're in a hot market to, you know, re you probably don't want to be fifth AV office and retail in New York right now, but you absolutely want to be retail in south Florida, for instance, or Dallas, Texas. These are places where they're seeing such a population increase and, you know, there's, there are plenty of drivers behind that, that we could go into, but they're seeing a massive population increase in Texas, Florida, the Carolinas, and, you know, it's actually a great market for retail, even retail construction.   So I think any asset type in these hot areas across the country, and then if you're in the right asset type multifamily, storage, industrial, you're going to get the money you need anywhere.   Jesse (20m 15s): Yeah. It's been a, it's been a ride quite a ride the last few years. So I'm curious, Tim, just because of your background, I thought maybe you could talk a little bit about how coming from the tech world, how has that impacted the way that you look at real estate or, you know, the way that you look at the business and, and just the way you look at your customers. Okay.   Tim (20m 38s): I think there's a lot more information and data available today on real estate than there was a decade ago. There was like one big real estate data company, a decade. And while they're still one huge. Now, now they're huge. And they're a huge real estate data company, and they've acquired others. There's a lot of other startups that are bringing interesting data points that can help with underwriting that can help make you more intelligent and make you more competitive when you're using data to full effect. I think there's a lot more workflow technology, not just with real estate CRM, so that certainly has grown, but really with, you know, deal management platforms and portals, and the listing portals are so much more full featured today than they were.   I think this next era of real estate tech is going to see a lot of those trends come together where not only will some of these real estate tech companies be more vertically integrated, where they were a data company and how they're helping with like transaction tools, but there's going to be integrations and partnerships between more real estate tech companies, where processes for, you know, for asset managers, for operators, for property managers and all the way down the line can really be connected in a way that it hasn't been before where your accounting system and your asset management system and your CRM and your transactions, and all the way through to your, you know, your tenant portal.   If you have all of these things are connected in a way that can really drive efficiencies. And, and that's, that's something that we're starting to see in the real estate tech market is, you know, these startups, some of them are becoming like real companies and like larger companies. They've gotten a lot of funding, 2021 in addition to being a second highest ever year for commercial mortgage origination. It was the highest year for venture capital investment into real estate data and real estate tech companies. And that's, you know, that's a leading indicator of more change and efficiency and innovation to come in our space.   Jesse (22m 40s): Yeah. I, you know, I think that's, that's exactly right for us. What's kind of amazing from the commercial real estate standpoint is you've seen the proliferation of tech in residential for a long time now, I think, and I think we're still playing catch up on the commercial side. And I think, I think we're headed in the right direction, but hopefully COVID, you know, the silver lining there is, it's kind of made people think a little bit more in just more forward thinking from the technological perspective.   And I think we've kind of, you know, COVID in general has kind of kicked us into that mind frame a mindset because we, we just did it by necessity.   Tim (23m 18s): Yeah. I agree. Residential real estate tech is another place to look. If you want to know, what are you going to, what are the trends going to be two or three years from now in commercial? You could look at what's happening in residential today. So in our space, I mean, it's very encouraging that in the us one out of every 11 loans on residential homes, I think was by rocket mortgage last year. And that's a staggering number considering every banker and every single bank can credit union across the country, wants their own customers coming in the front door to get a mortgage, but they're not, they're using rocket mortgage, we're using better mortgage because of the digital experience because of the ease and the efficiency of it.   And for that many people to be choosing instead of their local bank relationship or the local mortgage broker relationship to be choosing the efficient path and the transparent path, I think tells you all, you need to know about what's going to happen in five years in commercial mortgage.   Jesse (24m 13s): Yeah. It's just seems like a bit of a democratization to the consumer level. Tim, I'm curious, the, you, you mentioned that you guys were in growth mode, you know, even prior to the show we were talking about, you know, where you guys were at last year compared to this year, what is the, the next, you know, year or two look like for the team?   Tim (24m 34s): Well, we tripled our revenue and doubled our team at Sachs worse in 2021. And so to stay at a trajectory like that would be amazing from a, you know, from a company growth standpoint. And, you know, I think we've got the infrastructure in place, but really it's what's what are we going to continue to do on the product and not sit still and just say, Hey, we have a nice little digital loan portal. You can get access to these different financing options. We're going to continue to invest in this product.   Things like there are a couple of types of automated quotes you can get on our platform today. There'll be a dozen types of automated quotes. You can get on our platform by the end of the year, a lot of it for multifamily, but others are starting to do for other asset classes as well. So if you have straightforward underwriting scenarios, why should you wait on a banker to finish your round of golf before giving you, what is your interest rate in one zip code versus another, that's just not going to be the way agency multi-family and stabilize multi-family deals are quoted in the future as well as other asset classes.   So we're going to continue to push on the products pretending to make it as good at experiences and as easy to experience as possible to wait through different financing and capital sources. And, and we're going to hope to do that across the U S we're going to strike some more partnerships with other real estate tech companies, which I kind of alluded to is happening across the space in order to streamline the underwriting and the due diligence process, as well as to surface financing options in more helpful contexts, where you may be off of stack source, but you can get financing options where it's helpful to do so.   So that those are some of the things that we're focusing on.   Jesse (26m 14s): Are there current areas in the tech space or real estate tech prop tech that you think, or that, you know, you're excited about, or, you know, you think you're going to see a lot of big changes aside from the space that you're currently in.   Tim (26m 28s): I'm, I'm a huge cheerleader for real estate data and not just real estate data, but like external sources of data and figuring out how they impact properties and cities and what that means for investors. I think that's like a really cool thing that's happening. And it's, it's several steps away from something like artificially intelligent, real estate investing where like, you know, but I know 30 years ago, the best chess players were human and now they're computers 10 years ago, like there's this ancient Chinese board game of go.   And they thought it was too complex for, you know, for humans to be over, you know, passed out by a computer by computers. But now it's happened. I kind of wonder about real estate investing. I don't think that there's going to be some AI that can like out invest like the best real estate investors, certainly not at this stage of our history, but I think we're about to enter this era where if you're a real estate investor, that's not making the best use of data and tech you're going to fall behind.   And I don't think it's even too bold to say that because, you know, within, within like real estate comps, but also like social media sentiment and like there's, so there's so much you can mind and understand, like, where are people going? What do people want? And I think the best real estate investors are gonna make so much use of that over the next few years. And they're going to seriously outperform.   Jesse (27m 59s): Yeah. That's a, that's great. I'm currently reading a, the age of AI is a book I highly recommend it's Henry Kissinger, I guess, teamed up with, I think he was Eric Schmidt. I don't know if he was like, I think it was Google one of the founders, but it's   Tim (28m 14s): Chairman of Google when I worked there.   Jesse (28m 16s): Oh, there you go. That's right, Google. So, yeah, I'm just kind of nerding out on that book right now. I've thought it was pretty, pretty interesting, but yeah, it it'll be cool to see how this, how we shift because even, even the proliferation of data, when it comes to our area, we, we were using Altice insight for a lot of our stuff. Then moving into CoStar. And a lot of the brokers that I worked with were like, you know, CoStar is never going to be where all this is is that, you know, what we were using. And now I don't even think, I think every broker I talked to just uses CoStar.   So it's, it's interesting too, because you want other companies to be able to play in the space and be competitive, but it kind of seems like it's very similar to these social media platforms where the, you know, you have a first, first mover advantage and then once you actually become the dominant incumbent, it's it just kind of snowballs. So I'm, I'm curious how that will play out, you know, in five years from now, we'll, you know, we'll, there'll be a couple of different data companies or will there be, you know, one or two that, that dominates our space.   Tim (29m 18s): Yeah, that'd be interesting to see. I'm also curious to continue to see how it plays out though. A bunch of other real estate data companies have grown a lot over the last couple of years, and maybe they're not as large and certainly not as comprehensive as CoStar because CoStar has also been acquiring other real estate tech and data companies. They bought 10 X last year. They bought a couple other real estate data companies for different verticals that they didn't have well covered yet. But like out of New York city comp stack raised $50 million to do office industrial and retail comps across the country.   Last year, Moody's analytics is investing in several real estate tech companies like light boxes investing in a bunch of real estate tech companies. So there are some of these other players that are putting together, if not this, the full comprehensive package, I think there are starting to be some challengers. And then there are these interesting, like alternative data, you know, placer.ai had raised a bunch of money over the last couple of years. And what they do is for real estate companies, they allow you to see without doing manual measurement, where is foot traffic and where's car traffic, because they crowd source the data from people's smartphones and they see where are all these smartphones moving around?   And they aggregated anonymized that to say, you know, at any given storefronts or, you know, ha and a given storefront, how much foot traffic foot traffic will it really have, you know, on a two o'clock on a Thursday or for this apartment complex, how many people are already driving by on the way to work and would have a shorter commute if there was an apartment complex here. So like the, the analytics I think is, you know, gotta be one of these biggest opportunities for real estate tech and real estate data companies it's already happening.   I expect that to continue to accelerate.   Jesse (31m 13s): It's curious to the, the fact that you have companies doing kind of a roll-up strategy when it comes to acquisitions and growth, where they're buying other companies, rather than building their lines. I'm curious to see how we kind of roll forward. Like in the Canadian market, Avison young, the commercial real estate company I work for. I think we are, we're over 80, 80 offices now, but we're probably one of the larger ones here. So you have CVRE JLL, Cushman, the usual suspects, Colliers and ourselves. And we've a lot of these companies. I know Cushman has, we are JLL, has we built our own platforms?   So exactly what you're talking about, where, you know, we're in an office building in downtown Toronto, you can see where all the cell phones are analytics for our company, but we're building that in-house, and I'm always a little bit hesitant when I hear companies doing that, that aren't in that space. Cause I'm, I'm just of the mind like, well, why don't you just get the best, the best person or best company that does this and, you know, figure, figure that out. So I think, I can't remember the name of the company that we use, but a hundred percent, I think, I think that this is definitely the next, the next stage.   And then I think the, the big question is just like, it was 20 years ago. Okay. You have information now, what do you do with it? And I think that'll be, you know, still the difference between these successful investors or brokerages or real estate companies versus the ones that aren't at the top of their class.   Tim (32m 33s): Right? Yeah. And, and the answer might be different based on your size and your goals, right? Because a powerhouse estate investment company that has multiple funds or rates, or, you know, and they have a, they have a big presence in a, in a big budget. They, they're probably going to build their own tools, just like the major brokerage companies. They're going to build their own tools. You know, Avison young is going to build its own, you know, suite of tools, but some of the largest investors are going to do that too, for their own operations. If you're a mom and pop investor, you should looking for something off the shelf, that's going to give you an advantage.   And because you can't help to beat some of the in-house tools beat by some of the larger ones. So that's really where startups can thrive is either enabling like these big companies and being a part of their mix or having an out of the box solution for tons of small investors. And so we're probably somewhere we're somewhere in between because we do mid market loans as well as small, but in that small space, and even in a space where commercial mortgage brokers don't even want to help you, that you owe you need $700,000 to buy your first, multi-family get out of here.   Like you're not going to be helping since the office of many brokers, but for stacks or so we've made that process really efficient. And we actually did a number of loans less than a million dollars last year.   Jesse (33m 55s): Yeah. I think that's a critical point there. All right, Tim, I want to be mindful of the time here. We're just coming up to the end of the episode here. We ask all of our guests for questions. If you're ready to answer them, they're a little bit of a final four. We do.   Tim (34m 10s): Yeah. Let's do it Jesse.   Jesse (34m 11s): Right on. All right, Tim, what's something that, you know, now that you wish you learned at the beginning of whether it's working in real estate or at the beginning of your career in tech,   Tim (34m 22s): So many things, but I'll say everything is sales when you come down to it because everyone you deal with, even if you're not actually selling something, they're a human being and people react well when you use empathy. And when you use clarity of communication, and these are really what great salespeople do is they connect with someone at a, at a human level. Then they communicate clearly and then they guide them in the right way. So if can sales and I wish I learned that earlier.   Jesse (34m 52s): Yeah. It's great to try to move the S word into a, a, a positive thing over, I feel like it's over the last 10 or 15 year, he probably longer, I feel like it's, it's now starting to take a switch to people realizing that even in the technology, I think technology companies were a big part of this too, because at the end of the day, you know, you add value you market, and then you need sales to kind of bring it in and actually have that human aspect that you just mentioned. What would you say to a younger person trying to break into the industry?   And that can be on the real estate tech side or real estate in general?   Tim (35m 27s): Well, if you're trying to break into real estate or real estate tech, figure out something that you are good at and double that strength because especially right now, companies are looking for talented people. I mean, listen, it's, it's actually a job seekers market in many ways, and there's been this great resignation, find something you're really good at. And you can be passionate about whether it's your current passion or not. Like for me, starting off my career, I, if I looked around the room of my peers and other financed graduates coming from my university, I was good at spreadsheets, double down on something.   You can to be really good and add value on day one. And you're gonna make it hard for people to turn you down for a job. If that's part of the part of the job, right on   Jesse (36m 16s): What is on the proverbial bookshelf that could be audio book or any media that you're you're consuming right now,   Tim (36m 25s): I have too many podcasts on my list and I also have way too many books. I feel like I track what books I read on good reads.com. And I, for every one that I check off the list, I must be adding two or three. So the reading list is growing. I have a bunch of leadership books that I want to read because I, my company is growing and we had less than 10 people a couple of years ago. And now we have 25 and growing. So, you know, there are, I, I expect to read 3, 4, 5 leadership books among other things this year.   Jesse (36m 57s): And it's funny you say leadership. I was just looking at a list today and I don't, I, you know, listeners can can message or they can email in on whether this, the leader who had no title, I think was the, was the book that was recommended. Yeah. I think it's Robin,   Tim (37m 13s): That's my list based on the title alone. Next for that.   Jesse (37m 16s): Yeah. Okay. So last question. Our personal favorite here. First car make and model   Tim (37m 25s): Jeep Cherokee sport. 1999 red. We used to drive it down from, we lived outside of New York city and we used to drive it down to the Jersey shore. And you know, it was a lot of fun. You didn't care if you got sand all over it. And I CA I kept that car for a while and definitely shed a tear when I had to sell that.   Jesse (37m 46s): That's a, yeah, that's a pretty good first car. I was going to say, like you were in New York at the time. It doesn't seem like a, it doesn't seem like it fits there.   Tim (37m 54s): No, no. On the New Jersey side, it works well,   Jesse (37m 56s): Though. There you go. Absolutely. All right, Tim, for, for listeners that want to get more information on yourself or the company work in, they worked in the, be pointed to I'll put some, some links in the show notes.   Tim (38m 9s): Sure. Stack source.com is our company website. If you want to reach out to me directly, my email is tim@stacksource.com. So pretty simple, but if you search Tim, Milazzo M I L a Z O on LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter, I'll be the first one.   Jesse (38m 25s): My guest today has been Tim Alonzo. Tim, thanks for being part of working capital. Thanks,   Tim (38m 30s): Jessie.   Jesse (38m 38s): Thank you so much for listening to working capital the real estate podcast.

The Portland Trail Blazers came up just short against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night, losing 109-107 in a game that came down to the final shot. It was too much Anthony Edwards (40 points) and not enough Anfernee Simons and CJ McCollum (32 points combined), and yet the Blazers still had a chance at the buzzer to win the game. This one demands a closer look at what happened in crunch time. Plus Norman Powell returned to action after missing eight games. He came off the bench for the first time in his Blazers career and he looked like someone who hadn't played basketball in three weeks. But his returns means Chauncey Billups has to make a choice about starting Nassir Little at small forward or returning to a three-guard look that includes Powell. Finally, Cody Zeller is headed for knee surgery that will keep him out for two months and almost certainly end his Blazers career as he heads into free agency. His absence for the remainder of the season underscores Portland's lack of depth along the frontline. A problem that showed up Tuesday against Minnesota and will stick around for as long as this version of the roster exists. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending January 14th, 2022... what the Fed is saying about tighter monetary policy, the latest rise in consumer prices, and where mortgage rates are right now.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 confirmation hearings for Fed Chief Jerome Powell. President Biden nominated him to continue in his role as the central bank's Chairman. Powell told the Senate Banking Committee that super low interest rates are no longer needed to prop up the economy, and that short-term rates should go higher to control inflation.The Fed has penciled in three rate hikes this year, but Powell says the central bank is prepared to do more, if necessary. It's a balancing act because hiking rates too much and too fast, could lead us into a recession, and job losses. But Powell believes that rates can go higher without hurting the job market. MarketWatch described his characterization of the process as a “soft landing” for the economy, and not a recession.Powell says that “if things develop as expected, we'll be normalizing policy, meaning we're going to end our asset purchases in March, meaning we'll be raising rates over the course of the year.” (1) (2)As it stands, consumer prices rose again in December. The government says they were up .5% in December to a 40-year high of almost 7%. When you strip out food and energy, the inflation rate was up .6% in December to 5.5%. As reported by MarketWatch, that figure is a 31-year high. (3)Those high prices contributed to a drop in consumer spending, along with the spread of the Omicron variant and the supply chain disruptions that are leaving some store shelves bare. The government says that retail sales figures were down 1.9% in December. Internet retailers, like Amazon, experienced the biggest declines. Those figures were down almost 9%. Sales fell about 7% for department stores, 5.5% at furniture stores, and almost 3% at places that sell electronics, like Best Buy. (4)The unemployment report surprised economists with an increase in initial state claims. They were up 23,000 to a total of 230,000. Continuing claims dropped significantly however. Almost 200,000 people stopped collecting checks last week, leaving just 1.56 million people on the unemployment list. (5)Consumers are feeling more pessimistic about the economy because of inflation and Covid. The University of Michigan reports that its consumer sentiment index fell a few points in January, to 68.8. That's the second-lowest reading in a decade. The lowest was a few months ago when it dropped to 67.4 in November. (6)Mortgage RatesMortgage rates rose by almost a quarter point last week. Freddie Mac says the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was up 23 basis points to 3.45%. The 15-year was up 19 points to 2.62%. Freddie Mac says the rate increase was “driven by the prospect of a faster than expected tightening of monetary policy” by the Federal Reserve in response to inflation, supply chain disruptions, and labor shortages. (7)In other news making headlines… Mortgage Delinquency RatesThe mortgage delinquency rate has returned to pre-pandemic levels. CoreLogic's Loan Performance Report shows that 3.8% of mortgages were delinquent by at least 30 days in October. That's only one-tenth of a percent higher than October of 2019. And the trend is expected to continue. (8)The report shows CoreLogic's chief economist, Frank Nothaft, says that loan modifications have helped lower the number of loans that are seriously delinquent. But he says they were still half a million higher in October than they were at the start of the pandemic in March.The drop in mortgage delinquencies has lowered the foreclosure inventory rate to its lowest level since 1999. CoreLogic says foreclosures are down in all 50 states, and expects them to drop further throughout the course of this year.Second-Home Demand Demand for vacation homes continues to rise.

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol issued subpoenas  Tuesday to Rudy Giuliani and three other allies of former President Donald Trump involved in efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.  The committee said Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, Sidney Powell and Boris Epshteyn "publicly promoted unsupported claims about the 2020 election and participated in attempts to disrupt or delay the certification of election results."  "The four individuals we've subpoenaed today advanced unsupported theories about election fraud, pushed efforts to overturn the election results, or were in direct contact with the former President about attempts to stop the counting of electoral votes," Committee Chair Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., said in a statement.  Giuliani, Ellis and Powell were some of the most visible advocates of the former president's stolen election lies, and appeared together at a news conference at Republican National Committee headquarters in November 2020 baselessly alleging that Trump had been the victim of "centralized" voter fraud. Powell was later publicly removed from the legal team, but continued filing legal challenges to the election.   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Tom welcomes back Lobo Tiggre founder and CEO of Louis James LLC. He is the principal analyst and editor of IndependentSpeculator.com. He specializes in evaluating resource companies. Lobo discusses his thoughts on the Fed's actions but notes that he is not an economist. Inflation appears to be the trend and even Powell has retired the term transitory. Shutdowns and supply issues will take time to resolve so inflation and high prices are likely to persist. What happens this year is anyone's guess but the likelihood of a major market meltdown remains high. The growth outlook for overall equities does not look high. Ultimately, gold is usually tied to the dollar and overall this past year has been good for mining companies. He is focused on building his gold and silver positions but remains very bullish on uranium. Uranium equities experience a lot of volatility but this can also serve as buying opportunities. Lobo discusses his strategies for speculating on explorers and miners. The pre-production sweet spot is often an excellent opportunity. He likes to watch for explorers that continue to find opportunities due to a correct geological model. This year we will likely see a lot more mergers and acquisitions. He questions the value of ESG models and the risks if society continues to make permitting hard for miners. Good corporate citizenship is important for companies but we seem to be in an era of heightened political risks. In the worst-case scenario, we could see mining in western countries become impractical. Lastly, he discusses the possibility of substitutes for green energy metals. Copper will be needed in abundance regardless and further price rises seem inevitable. Oil is another sector that is hated and could easily become a good contrarian play. This year will be one for investors to take a careful active approach to their investments.

This number doesn't only include people who live paycheck to paycheck, people who earn more are also concerned about money. These people aren't crying about the loss of the mega backdoor Roth or cryptocurrency. They are crying about their financial behavior. Many people who are educated about money and finances still struggle with their financial behavior. Mastering your finances isn't about what you know, it's about what you do.  Stacked helps readers take action to improve their financial situation Traditional finance books often overcomplicate finances or hype certain complicated financial strategies. Stacked helps readers understand what they should be thinking about when it comes to financial matters and why they should think about them. Since Joe discovered that people need actionable items to complete to successfully change their financial behavior he decided that his book should help readers change their financial behavior through action. The book is based on achievements that are built on micro-actions. Its format is award-based, similar to the way that many educational apps gamify learning.  Joe begins financial planning with the end in mind Joe's book begins with the end in mind. It is goal-based and helps readers create a timeline to put their goals in perspective. Since most of us are visual learners, the book helps to plot things visually so that readers can begin to work on their financial problems.  As you read, you'll be able to visualize your goals so that you can put a list together to understand what you truly value and how that applies to your financial plan.

Who picks up the tab, and what was the cost?   Eight years ago, 61-year-old Yao Pan Ma, was savagely assaulted in the Bronx while he collected soda cans to pay his rent. Jarrod Powell, a 50 -year-old black man, had pleaded not guilty of several charges -- including attempted murder and hate crimes -- at his arraignment last June 22. But eight years after the brutal attack, Yao Pan Ma has died of his severe wounds. A security camera captured a man, prosecutors identified as Powell, stomping repeatedly on Yao Pan Ma's head.

Today we're entering the world of sports. That's right, we're talking about everyone's favorite sport… Curling! Curling is a sport in which players slide stones on a sheet of ice toward a target area segmented into four concentric circles. It is related to bowls, boules, and shuffleboard. Two teams, each with four players, take turns sliding heavy, polished granite rocks, also called stones, across the ice curling sheet toward the house, a circular target marked on the ice. Each team has eight stones, with each player throwing two. The purpose is to accumulate the highest score for a game; points are scored for the stones resting closest to the center of the house after each end, which is completed when both teams have thrown all of their stones. A game usually consists of eight or ten ends…  Um...What the fuck.. Fucking Moody… This is why we can't trust him to do research while hunting Sasquatch in Canada… Hold on, let me find the right notes… Son of a bitch, where are they… Ah, here we go. Today we are actually going into the wonderful world of… WRESTLING!!! But you know us… we're actually not looking at the wonderful part… No sirs and madams, we take it to the not-so-wonderful side. We'll be discussing some crazy and tragic wrestler Deaths. Many of our beloved childhood wrestling favorites have passed on over the past decade or so. Many were related to the job's rigors, leading to drug use and overdose, heart attacks, suicides, and a host of other causes. Today, we're going to look at some more… "interesting," if you will... wrestler deaths. Some of these guys you'll know, some only hardcore wrestling fans will know, and some, none of you may know, at all. Also, we're going to skip some of the biggest ones because they've been covered more times than podcasts covering Ted Bundy and in much more detail within the time we have, so you won't be hearing about some of the more popular ones. So without any more curling bullshit (fucking Moody). Let's get to it!    First up is an old-timer that primarily wrestled in Australia… We love you beautiful sumbitches in Australia, so we wanted to throw this one in. Also, maybe you guys have some stories about this guy if you're old enough to remember him. His name is Brute Bernard! He initially made his name as tag team partner of Skull Murphy in the WWF. Brute toured the world with Skull until he died in 1969. Brute won the IWA World Tag titles in Australia with Murphy 6 times. They defeated Mark Lewin & Dominic de Nucci, Lewin & Bearcat Wright, Mario Milano & Billy White Wolf, Mario Milano & Antonio Pugliese, and Lars Anderson & Dick Murdoch. They lost to Lewin & Wright twice, Milano & Pugliese twice, Don Leo Jonathan & Antonio Pugliese, and Mario Milano & Spiros Arion. Brute continued as a solo wrestler in Australia, where he had his most tremendous success, winning the Austro-Asian title from Spiros Arion before dropping it back to him. He also wrestled extensively in the Carolinas, teaming up with the Missouri Mauler in Texas. Brute was also married to pro wrestler Betty Joe Hawkins.   He was famous for his 'camel walk.' I tried to look it up but couldn't find anything about it, but I think it was probably something like the iron Shiek's "Camel Clutch."    So when you look up the cause of death of this guy, you get a common reason of "shot while cleaning gun," which is still fucked up. The thing is, if you do a little more digging, it doesn't seem so simple. While there isn't an incredible amount of information on his death, if you look, you can find enough people that are suspicious of the "accidental" death ruling. Some think it was an intentional self-inflicted gunshot. There is a small amount that believes it was murder. And then some say that he was drunk and decided to play a game of Russian roulette. So what is the real story? Who knows? But there are enough people asking questions and spewing theories to make this an exciting appetizer for the show! Suicide? Russian roulette? Courtney Love? Who knows! And if that's "too soon", fuck off... she had SOMETHING to do with it.   Ok, so who's next? Oh, how about Neil Allen Caricofe. His ring name "Neil Superior" was better known, and he was born on April 6, 1963, in Hagerstown, Maryland. He was at one point a corrections officer, and he also served in the army reserve. He was trained by one of the Wild Samoans, who you definitely remember if you're Chainsaw's age. Superior made his pro debut in 1989. He and his father, Dick Caricofe, founded the All-Star Wrestling League (later known as the National Wrestling League) in Hagerstown, Maryland, that same year. Caricofe formed a tag team with fellow Wild Samoan graduate Doug Stahl called The Superior Brothers, "Nasty" Neil, and "Desirable" Doug Superior. At some point, the two also wrestled under the team name...The Satanic Warriors… yea… Anyway. After splitting with Stahl, Superior embarked on a singles career. One of his first significant opponents was "The Honky Tonk Man" (who I loved as a kid) and who he faced in Hagerstown on August 10, 1991. Superior also feuded with Rasta the Voodoo Mon. Later that year, Superior defeated Helmut Hesler to win the NWL Heavyweight Championship. After that, he worked for many other independent companies throughout the 90s. Finally, he became the south Atlantic pro wrestling heavyweight champion in 1992 and held the belt for 4 months until the promotion folded. He would then go back and finish his career in the NWL until his death… Which is why we're here.    Early on the morning of August 23, 1996, Caricofe, who had left his hotel room around 4:00 A.M., was observed acting erratically and running naked on the seventh floor of the Fenwick Inn in Ocean City, Maryland. Which, of course, we've all done at some point in our lives. It was believed that Caricofe had left his room accidentally and was unable to find his way back. Caricofe may have suffered from a medical condition caused by seizures, which made him sleepwalk. According to the Caricofe family, it wasn't unusual for him to sleep either in his underwear or nude. The night desk clerk, Lisa Mulvihill, became aware of the situation when a concerned guest called the front desk. When Mulvihill investigated, she saw Caricofe "jumping around and banging himself against the wall ."She briefly attempted to communicate with Caricofe but returned to the front desk and called the police, finding him unresponsive. Mulvihill received a second call that Caricofe was banging on the doors of several rooms. Mulvihill then made a second call to the police, informing them that she was returning to the seventh floor and requesting that officers meet her there. Officers would arrive and find Superior roaming the hallway, and when they approached him, they said he appeared to be in a boxer's stance, dancing around on his tiptoes and doing some kind of shadowboxing. They say he was not responding to their commands, and they called for backup when they assumed he was under the influence and dangerous. An attempt by two officers to handcuff Superior failed. They continued shouting commands to lay down on the ground and, when Caricofe failed to respond, all four officers used pepper spray, which they later claimed had no effect. Caricofe then moved toward the officers, pinning Officer Freddie Howard up against the wall, and held the officer by his shirt. Sergeant Braeuninger and Officer Alban radioed for backup, the latter calling in a "Signal 13," indicating an officer needed emergency assistance. Alban, Braeuninger, and Jones began hitting Caricofe on his lower back and legs with nightsticks to free Howard. Caricofe would run away and mash his way down 7 flights of stairs; along the way, police say he ran into a vending area and began beating his head and shoulders into the vending machines. Once he made it down the stairs, he headed into the parking lot, where more police were waiting. They sprayed him with pepper foam and beat him with nightsticks in another attempt to subdue him. Finally, the over officer grabbed him and held him long enough for the others to restrain him. The group held Caricofe down while attempting to handcuff him and place the "violent prisoner restraining device" on his legs. While police were waiting for paramedics to arrive, the officers observed that Caricofe was no longer breathing. They assisted paramedics in performing CPR on Caricofe but could not revive him. He was pronounced dead at the hospital a short time later. The story does not end there, though.    The circumstances surrounding Caricofe's death were questioned during the next few weeks. It was not learned until afterward that Caricofe had been diagnosed with a medical condition two years earlier, a neurological problem possibly resulting from a wrestling-related injury that caused seizures and made him appear to be sleepwalking. Ya know, CTE... for those that don't know, Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive brain condition that's thought to be caused by repeated blows to the head and repeated episodes of concussion. It's mainly associated with contact sports, such as boxing or American football. The Caricofe family was given little information from authorities regarding the death of their son. They learned from Gerald Minnich, director of Minnich Funeral Home in Hagerstown, who described their son's injuries, that Neil Caricofe had sustained "a possible broken nose, swelling around his eyes and a bruise on the back of his head ." Caricofe's father did not initially hold Ocean City police liable for the death of his son. He was told by a Maryland State Police investigator and a friend who was a state trooper at the Berlin police barracks that his son had hit his head on a vending machine as he was running from police. The family believed that the responding police officers, three of whom were temporary, seasonal patrolmen, were inexperienced and had overreacted due to Neil Caricofe's size. In an article from the Washington Post, shortly after the incident, a woman who said she was staying at the hotel and witnessed the incident said Caricofe "didn't yell back or attack but refused to lay down and kept running around."   The woman, who spoke on the condition that her name not be used, said she believes that officers put something resembling a dog collar around Caricofe's neck just before he became unconscious. "There were at least 10 of them on top of him," she said. "When they were finished, he was unconscious."    City spokesman Jay Hancock said he had "not heard about anything being placed around {Caricofe's} neck at all." He said officers are trained to use a baton to strike someone in "the extremities."   The witness also said police officers did not attempt to revive Caricofe by giving him CPR, contradicting police statements that officers had done so.   The autopsy ruled the cause of death was heart disease combined with the ingestion of drugs and alcohol. A toxicology report found the presence of ephedrine, gamma hydroxybutyrate, anabolic steroids, and ethanol in his system. The family would challenge this ruling, though, as they believed he was perfectly healthy and that the police used excessive force, which caused his death. A year after Caricofe's death, his parents were still unable to find out the details of what occurred that night. The family's Baltimore attorney, Gerald Ruter, believed his clients were being stonewalled by law enforcement. So the family began their own investigation. On June 2, 1998, Caricofe's parents filed a $350 million federal lawsuit against the Ocean City Police Department, claiming that their son had died due to police brutality. The case was heard in U.S. District Court in Baltimore. Gerald Ruter, an attorney for the Caricofe family, claimed that the officers "jumped on him and knocked him down and emptied several cans of pepper spray into his face," causing him to suffocate to death. It was further claimed their use of nightsticks and pepper spray to subdue Neil Caricofe was unnecessary and constituted excessive force. Among those named in the lawsuit included former mayor Roland F. Powell, Police Chief David Massey, and 13 Ocean City police officers charged with wrongful death, excessive force, inadequate training and supervision of police, and false arrest.    The case was dismissed by Judge Frederic Smalkin, who believed the officers had appropriately responded. The ruling was upheld by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on April 1, 2002, concluding that the officers had never resorted to deadly force.   Sounds pretty fucked up. More police bullshit? Justified force? Who knows, but that's a crazy tale!   Next is one of the more prominent wrestlers we're gonna talk about. He started out as the Blue Angel, which transformed him into the Blue Blazer, the character that first brought him success. He is none other than the legendary Owen Hart. This is another one that's been covered a ton, but we wanted to talk about it because some of us here at the train remember watching this happen live. A member of the Hart wrestling family, he was born in Calgary, Alberta, the youngest of twelve children of Stampede Wrestling promoters Stu and Helen Hart. Among other accolades, Owen was a one-time USWA Unified World Heavyweight Champion, a two-time WWF Intercontinental Champion, a one-time WWF European Champion, and a four-time WWF World Tag Team Champion, as well as the 1994 WWF King of the Ring. He headlined multiple pay-per-view events for the WWF and was widely regarded as one of the company's best in-ring performers. And if you've never seen him in action, the guy was an absolute specimen in the ring. On May 23, 1999, Hart fell to his death in Kansas City, Missouri, during the Over the Edge pay-per-view event. Hart was in the process of being lowered via harness and grapple line into the ring from the rafters of Kemper Arena for a booked Intercontinental Championship match against The Godfather. In keeping with the Blazer's new "buffoonish superhero" character, he began a dramatic entrance, being lowered to just above ring level. At that time, he would act "entangled," then release himself from the safety harness and fall flat on his face for comedic effect—this necessitated the use of a quick-release mechanism. It was an elaboration on a Blue Blazer stunt done previously on Sunday Night Heat before Survivor Series in 1998. While being lowered into the ring, Hart fell 78 feet (24 m), landing chest-first on the top rope (approximately a foot from the nearest turnbuckle), throwing him into the ring. Hart had performed the stunt only a few times before. Hart's widow Martha has suggested that Hart unintentionally triggered an early release by moving around to get comfortable with both the harness and his cape. Television viewers did not see the incident. Instead, a pre-taped vignette was being shown on the pay-per-view broadcast and on the monitors in the darkened arena during the fall. A vignette is any piece of video footage featuring characters or events shown to the audience for entertainment or edification. It is usually meant to introduce a debuting character, get a wrestler over before their TV wrestling debut, or signify an impending return. Afterward, while medical personnel worked on Hart inside the ring, the live event's broadcast showed only the audience. Meanwhile, WWF television announcer Jim Ross repeatedly told those watching live on pay-per-view that what had just transpired was not a wrestling angle or storyline and that Hart was hurt badly, emphasizing the seriousness of the situation. Jim Ross would later say in an interview.                     "Being at ringside the night he fell [and announcing live on air that he had died] was the toughest thing I ever did. To this day, I've still never seen the tape. I was pretty numb. Everyone was in shock that night. I still have nightmares about it. Owen was as warm-hearted as any human being I have ever known. He loved to laugh, and he loved to make other people laugh. He had a great spirit, a good soul, and a good heart."   Five months before his tragic death, Owen Hart opened up to Slam Wrestling about his desire to soon leave wrestling:   "When my contract is up, I'm out of wrestling. I've made plans. I've been smart with my fiscal affairs. Financially, I'll be set. I really want to devote a lot of time to my family. I've bought some property on a lake. I plan on doing a lot of boating and fishing. I want to continue to stay in shape. And who knows, I might do ten weeks a year in Japan. Something just to motivate me to keep in shape, keep involved a little bit but not have to deal with the politics, the pressures that are so intense right now. I've paid my dues for twelve years now. If I continue for five more, that's seventeen years working at a pretty hard clip. I think that at that point, my family, my wife, and my kids, have been compromised enough. I would like to kind of just disappear from wrestling fans and stuff. I don't want to forget the fans and what they've done. They've supported me and stuff, but at the same time, I'd like to just — I don't want to be hanging on like one of these wrestlers who's sixty years old, saying, 'Hey, I'm a wrestler.' Let it go. Make your money out of it and get on. Going out and performing- it's an art. I'd like fans to remember me as a guy who would go out and entertain them, give them quality matches. Not just the same old garbage every week."   There was a lot of controversy over the incident. One of the main things that people talked about was how they went on with the show that night after the fall. So many people were upset that they would do this.    Vince McMahon would say of the decision:              "Knowing Owen as the performer he was, it is my belief that he would have wanted the show to go on. I didn't know if it was the right decision. I just guessed that it was what Owen would want." This is bullshit and just shows the kind of person McMahon was, in my personal opinion.   Referee Jimmy Korderas, who Hart almost landed on when he fell, would say:   "It's easy for us to say afterward, 'Well, the show should have stopped…' I was kind of on the fence with that. I kind of liken it a little bit to a Nascar race, where the race continues even after a tragic accident. Again, it's a tough call. I'm just glad I'm not the one who had to make that call."   There were lawsuits filed by Hart's wife against the WWE and the harness company. A settlement was reached with the WWE for 18 million dollars which his wife used much to set up the Owen Hart Foundation. The lawsuit against the harness company was dropped after the settlement.    A traffic end to the life of a great wrestler.   Next up Adolfo Bresciano! You may know him better as Dino Bravo! After training under Gino Brito, he started his career in Montreal in the 1970s, working for Lutte Internationale. He became one of Canada's top professional wrestling stars, winning several major titles, including the Canadian International Heavyweight Championship six times, the NWA Canadian Heavyweight Championship (Toronto version), and the NWA Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Championship. He later signed with the World Wrestling Federation, where, as a partner to Dominic DeNucci, he won the WWF World Tag Team Championship. He was also the sole holder of the WWF Canadian Championship before the title was abandoned in 1986.  Bravo returned to the WWF in late 1986 with a new look. He was now noticeably more muscular and almost immediately began bleaching his brown hair blonde. Again, he was a heel and began working as part of Luscious Johnny Valiant's stable with Greg "The Hammer" Valentine and Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake. Bravo was known as more of a technical wrestler in his days of wrestling in Canada. Still, with his strongman gimmick, his technical side was pushed into the background and his style changed to using power (brawling) moves such as bodyslams, clotheslines, punches, kicks, and other power holds such as the bearhug. In contrast, his finishing move changed from an airplane spin to a sidewalk slam. Bravo left the WWF and retired from wrestling following a European tour in April 1992. After retiring, he helped train wrestlers in Montreal.    After retiring from the WWF, Dino reportedly struggled to make ends meet. Related by marriage to Montreal mobster Vic Cotroni, Dino became involved with crime. Using his status as a wrestling celebrity, he smuggled and sold illegal cigarettes in Canada, mainly to Aboriginals. The story goes that while his wife was taking his daughter to ballet class, he sat down to watch a hockey game on television and ended up shot 17 times with seven hits to the head and 10 to his torso. The crime remains an unsolved murder; however, it is widely accepted that Dino's involvement in smuggling was the reason for his death. As there were no signs of a break-in and no footprints outside the home's windows, there is speculation that Dino knew his killer, that the person was watching hockey with him when the assassination happened. While this can't be confirmed, what is certain is that Dino's wife found him later that evening when she returned home with their daughter. Dino Bravo was killed on Wednesday, March 10, 1993.    In an interview, his former opponent Bret "The Hitman" Hart revealed that Bravo confided to friends shortly before his death that he knew his days were numbered.   Canadian Mafia… Not gonna lie… Didn't know that was a thing!    Speaking of murdered wrestlers, it's time for everyone's favorite…. The midnight train's quick hits!   John Meek wrestled under the name "Iron" Mike Steele, and in his career, he shared the ring with the likes of Marc Mero and Dean Malenko. Unfortunately, his wrestling career and life came to an end on August 29, 2007.   Harry Brian Taylor intentionally ran over Steele from behind with his van while he was riding his motorcycle. Steele passed away two hours later next to his damaged motorcycle.   On July 10, 2008, Taylor was found guilty of second-degree murder for killing Mike Steele. He was sentenced to life imprisonment without parole.   Frank' Bruiser Brody' Goodish found success as a main eventer and became one of the most talented big men in wrestling. Brody was scheduled to face Dan Spivey in Puerto Rico, but he was called into the shower area by wrestler José Huertas González to talk about some business.   Brody was stabbed in the gut by González and died in the hospital from his stab wounds. He was only 42. González was charged with murder but pleaded self-defense and was acquitted.    Tank Morgan was born in 1933, and his name died down following his tenure in WWF (now WWE) from 1966-1967.   On December 12, 1966, he lost to former WWE Champion Bruno Sammartino in a two out of three falls match inside Madison Square Garden's, the world's most famous arena.   This was the most notable moment in Morgan's entire career, but sadly, he was gunned down in a drive-by shooting on August 15, 1991, while walking his dog. Unfortunately, the details concerning his death are pretty scarce.   Many people believed that Morgan was caught up in the crossfire and was a victim of mistaken identity. What we do know, however, is that he was murdered.   "Gentleman" Chris Adams had a successful wrestling career. He's also the man who trained a guy named Steven James Anderson, aka Steve Williams "The Ringmaster," aka "Stunning" Steve Austin, aka... you guessed it! Stone Cold Steve Austin. Adams worked for World Class Championship Wrestling as a mid-carder in the late 1990s.   After Adams' short-term girlfriend Linda was found dead in 2000 following a drug or alcohol overdose, Adams was charged for manslaughter. However, he was passed out too, but he survived the overdose.   He waited to find out whether or not the court found him guilty, but he never lived to hear the verdict. Adams was shot in the chest after a heated argument with his friend on October 7, 2001.   The charges were acquitted after the friend claimed that he shot Adams in self-defense.   Ricky Lawless was considered an excellent technician during his career in the '80s. He trained a lot of independent wrestlers such as Joey Maggs, Bobby Starr, and Axl Rotten.   Lawless was discovered dead at the age of 28 after he, too, was shot. It was determined by the police that Raymond Swartz, the husband of the woman Lawless had reportedly had an affair with, was the man responsible for the shooting.   There you have it… murdered wrestler quick hits.   No wrestling family has been through more tragedy than the Von Erichs. The family's actual last name is Adkisson. However, every member of the family who joined the wrestling business used the Von Erich name. This was in dedication to the patriarch of the family, Jack (Fritz Von Erich) Adkisson.   Fritz lived to the age of 68, though unpleasantly, five of his six sons preceded him in death, three by suicide.   The firstborn son, Jack Jr., was electrocuted at the age of six in 1959 in a household accident.   In 1984, David Von Erich died in Japan from an unconfirmed cause, although it is widely believed he died from a drug overdose.   On April 12, 1987, Mike Von Erich left a suicide note for his family, then went to Lewisville Lake, where he drank alcohol and overdosed on the sleeping aid Placidyl. A few days before his death, Mike was arrested after a DUI. His body was found four days later and buried at Grove Hill Memorial Park in Dallas.   On September 12, 1991, at about 9 P.M., Chris Von Erick was found by his brother Kevin and mother outside of their family farm in Edom, suffering from a self-inflicted 9mm gunshot wound to the head. According to Kevin, he discovered Chris sitting alone on top of a hill. Chris reassured him, and after Kevin left, he shot himself in the head. Although Chris was hospitalized at the East Texas Medical Center shortly after 10 P.M., he died 20 minutes after arriving, eighteen days before his 22nd birthday. Toxicology reports also revealed cocaine and valium were in his system at his death. Kevin had talked to Chris earlier that day about 100–150 yards north of their home where an apparent suicide note had been left. After the 1987 suicide of brother Mike, Chris began to experience depression and drug issues. He was also frustrated by his inability to make headway as a wrestler due to his physical build. His interment was located at Grove Hill Memorial Park in Dallas.   On June 4, 1986, Kerry von Erich was in a motorcycle accident that nearly ended his life. He suffered a dislocated hip and a badly injured right leg. Doctors were unable to save his right foot, eventually amputating it. According to his brother Kevin, Kerry injured the foot following surgery by attempting to walk on it prematurely, thus forcing the doctors to amputate it. He continued wrestling after the accident with a prosthesis. He kept the amputation secret to most fans and fellow wrestlers, even going to the extreme of showering with his boots on. His amputation was kept secret from the public until after his death. However, Roddy Piper stated in his autobiography: "We were the best of friends. In fact, he felt comfortable enough to sit with me in a hotel and shoot the breeze with his prosthetic off".   After the amputation of his foot, Kerry became addicted to pain killers, followed by several drug problems. Among the many of them were two arrests, the first of which resulted in probation. Kerry died by suicide with a single gunshot to the heart with a .44 caliber pistol on February 18, 1993, on his father's ranch in Denton County, Texas, just 15 days after his 33rd birthday. His death came just one day after being indicted for the second drug charge, which would have more than likely resulted in extensive jail time (being a violation of his probation),   In his autobiography, "My Real Life in the Cartoon World of Wrestling", Brett "the Hitman" Hart stated that Kerry had told him that he had decided to join his late brothers in heaven and was waiting for God to tell him when. Bret told Kerry that his living daughters would need him more than his late brothers. Kerry mostly convinced Bret that he had changed his mind, but Bret feared that it was only words. Kerry told Bret again in the summer of 1992 that he wanted to follow his three late brothers David, Mike, and Chris and that they were calling him. Kerry's marriage had fallen apart earlier in 1992, and according to Hart, Kerry believed that his death was inevitable.   Fritz lived to the age of 68 and had to bury 5 of his sons.    Kevin Von Erich talks about being the last Von Erich brother left alive in an interview from 1994. He says:   "My brothers and I lived real dangerously.   "We were a really reckless group always showing off for each other – like walking on bridges in Japan and taking every chance we could. We were just young kids. I'm really surprised that I survived…   "We used to have this thing called the 'chance of the day,' where every day we'd take a chance on our lives. Dave was always too smart for that, so he'd just watch. We'd jump on wild bulls' backs, jump on trains going fast. "We'd get on the roof of a car at highway speed. You start thinking nothing can get you, and you're indestructible. That's part of being in sports. We were blessed with good bodies and good balance. We felt like we could do anything, and nothing would hurt us."   He goes on about the pain killers and drugs:            "Mike was into painkillers. All the brothers had painkillers prescribed by doctors. Kerry was the only one who got into illegal drugs [that weren't prescribed].   "Kerry figured he didn't have anything to live for. He was rootless. He had no home. Seeing me with my family made his pain greater. It reminded him of what he was missing. It was such a sad, tragic thing.   "He had his two beautiful daughters and a wife he loved, but then he'd come home, and all his stuff would be moved out. She'd move all his stuff out. Kerry was no saint [but] they both treated each other kind of rough.   "He had pretty much come to an understanding the day he killed himself. He just left having lunch with Kathy, his wife. Kerry was going to jail*, and he was afraid of never seeing his girls again.   "He said, 'Kevin, I'm about to kill myself…'   "We had talked for about an hour. We told some good dirty jokes, we laughed, and he told me, 'I'm going to kill myself.' I thought I had him talked out of it.   "He said, 'I didn't want to be like Mike and not say goodbye.'   "That's when I begged him. I said, 'Don't do this. Don't leave me alone. You're my only brother. Don't leave me.'   "I thought I had talked him out of it.   "Thirty minutes later, they found his body. He must have gone right out and done it.   If you want to talk about tragic wrestler deaths, there you go. We can't even imagine going through something like that. And remember, if you or someone you know are having thoughts of harming yourself or someone else, please reach out to your local mental health professionals. It takes a stronger person to get help than to do something you can't take back.   Those are some of the crazier deaths we found. This list is but a small fraction of the tragic deaths from the world of wrestling. Tons of guys we grew up watching have died recently due to health complications and drug issues. There have been some younger guys that have passed on recently as well. There have been tons of suicides in wrestlers under the age of 50. Also, as we've seen, a pretty good amount of murders. As we stated earlier, we stayed away from many more prominent names, mainly because they were health-related and covered extensively in recent years. Also, we don't want to talk about a guy who decided it was best to end his wife's and son's lives, as well as his own. CTE is a raging bitch. We'd like to hear what you guys think and maybe some crazy ones we've missed since we're not perfect! But before we talk about anything else, I am going to show you wonderful listeners some of my favorite moves in the ring on my boy Logan and check this out on our youtube page!

On this edition of Parallax Views, Ret. Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to Colin Powell, returns to Parallax Views to discuss the state of U.S. foreign policy, international relations, and the military-industrial congressional complex. The conversation begins with a discussion of AIPAC's recently announced foray into direct spending on U.S. election, the U.S.-Israel relationship, and the potential of a cataclysm in the relationship. We also discuss the far-right, Trumpism, and antisemitism in regard to all of this the changing nature of the U.S.-Israel relationship going forward into the next few decades. Col. Wilkerson expresses his belief that the relationship between U.S. and Israel will not atrophy over time, but rather come to a juncture that will lead to a catastrophic rupture. From there we pivot to discussing the newly passed Pentagon/defense budget that over $770 billion dollars in total. In this regard we talk about the deepening chasm between the public's increasingly weary feelings towards war and military adventurism and Congress' support of thing like the recent $650 million arms deal to Saudi Arabia. Col. Lawrence Wilkerson also elaborates on his belief that the National Security State is "eating up" American Democracy. We go through some history from the Cold War to post-9/11 War on Terror. The National Security State, Wilkerson says, is always seeking to find a new threat to justify its continued existence and growth. Ret. Col. Wilkerson and I also get into the current Ukraine crisis, U.S.-Russia relations, the situation with Taiwan, U.S.-China relations, the war games simulations over Taiwan and their significance (Wilkerson has been involved in some of these simulations), China's Belt and Road Initiative, Vladimir Putin, intelligence agencies and the problems CIA vs. NKVD/GRU intelligence, the threat of nuclear weapons being used if a war is started conventionally, the New Cold War, the threat of climate change and the environmental impacts of the Department of Defense, hubris within elements of the foreign policy establishment, and finally Wilkerson's thoughts on the recently passed Colin Powell and the conflcits between figures like Powell and Dick Cheney in the years of the Bush administration's stay in the White House.
