Michael: Hey, everyone, welcome to another episode of the remote real estate investor. I'm Michael Albaum. And today I'm joined by Dan Wold, president of the American Land Title Association. And he's going to be talking to us today about title insurance. What is it? When do we need it, as well as wire fraud and how to combat it and all of our real estate transactions? So let's get into it.   Hey, Dan, thank you so much for coming on the show and hanging out with me today. I really appreciate it.   Dan: Well, it's my pleasure. And hopefully we can touch on some really important topics today.   Michael: Yes, yes, I'm very much looking forward to it. And right before we started recording here, you and I were chatting about kind of what it is that the American Land Title Association does, and you are the president of, but so I'd love if you could share a little bit with our listeners.   Dan: Well, our governance structure has a board of governors, and this year, I am the well, actually just just incoming president for the upcoming year. And that kind of a real quick primer on title insurance, you know, we basically are involved with land title transfers, and and then ensuring the lien priorities of the of the lenders as well. So we issue owner's title insurance policies, to the consumer that purchases the property. And we like to kind of just boil it down to we protect property interests.   And we also provide peace of mind because we're the ones that sweat the details in relation to all the stuff that goes on in relation to a settlement or closing. And so that the consumer, you know, they run around doing all kinds of things at the last minute, we're there to help them and give them peace of mind.   Michael: It's It's funny, how many things get pushed until the very last minute and most closing, isn't it?   Dan: Yeah, and things pop up. And, you know, we've got so many Lanta professionals around the country that, you know, do this for a living have seen pretty much everything that you can throw at them that they are very capable at, you know, navigating the challenges that could come up in any given closing transaction?   Michael: Well, that's good to know that I'm not I don't have to be the first guinea pig with any of my closings coming up. So that's exciting.   I'm curious, Dan, if you could just elaborate a little bit more on what title insurance is, because I've got to admit, as part of, you know, the head coach and Program Manager with Roofstock Academy. This is a question that I get asked a lot of times by students in the program, so give us a kind of a high level breakdown of just what is it? And why should somebody may be thinking about getting it because it is optional, oftentimes with an all cash deal?   Dan: Well, it is it's a one time charge that occurs, you know, as part of the closing transaction. And essentially what we do, which is interesting and unique about our industry versus other insurance industries, a lot of other insurance industry will use actuarial and then pool risk. What we do is we basically sweat the details, and we research the land property records, and other pertinent information so that when we issue our policy, it will say that you are holding title to that parcel of property or land, and then subjected to only the identified defects or lien rights that might occur.   For example, if you take on a mortgage, to purchase or a deed of trust, you know, depending on the part of the country that you're in, to acquire that property, then that would be shown as an exception to clear title. And what happens then is if there's somebody that comes in and challenges your interest, and if it falls within the scope of the coverage provisions of the policy, then we would defend and then also to the extent that we miss something, then then we would also have an obligation to pay money to recompense the landowner or consumer for the de munition and the like in relation to what we insured and what was the reality that the you know, have in relation to that property.   And so we provide a lot of peace of mind on a one time you know, it's it's your largest purchase for most people in their lifetime. And it gives you peace of mind that if somebody comes comes and challenges it, and there are instances where mistakes are made, and they if you don't acquire it, then you might be able to go back up against the prior owner if you got a warranty deed, but they might not have any money, or you can't pursue them. And so this is a third party that basically has the money to stand behind, essentially, their contractual obligations under the title insurance policy.   Michael: Okay. So if I were to break that down and say it another way, help, help me help keep me on the rails here. So if I'm a buyer, and I want to go buy a piece of property, and I get into contract, and I'm going to the closing table, and I see that line item that says Title Insurance, that I have the option to buy, and I do buy it opt to buy it. Now, six months down the road, somebody comes knocking on my door and says, Excuse me, Mr. Michael, I actually own this property, you don't own it, I could then engage with my title insurance company and say, hey, this person is claiming to have a right to ownership of this property, I clearly own it based on a transaction just went through six months ago. And so the title insurance company is going to help correct any outstanding issues and get this issue resolved.   Dan: Yeah, or we have also a duty to defend if someone Sue's you and claims that they have ownership interests. So there's, you know, multiple indemnification obligations under the policy, including the duty to defend, you know, so basically, you're pretty much spot on as to, to put it in layman's terms, kind of the function of what our product does, and the assurances that we give.   Michael: Okay. And I'm just curious, in your experience, and what type of claims have you seen where somebody can come to an owner and say, Actually, I own the property, and that wasn't picked up during the title search during due diligence phase of that subsequent purchase?   Dan: Well, I think I think another way to think about it, it's not always just a claim against ownership, it could be that there's a missed easement. So that all of a sudden, you got a utility easement in the back of your entire back of your yard. And you were intending to put a swimming pool in there. There's a there's a wide range of defects that could fall within the scope of coverage. And so basically, you know, to the extent that what is revealed in the title insurance policy is the scope of what are the are the diminishes from your your absolute ownership of that property without any third party interest affecting it from an easement or other standpoint, those are also matters that could fall within the scope of coverage and could result in us taking action to remove the defect or providing you with a, you know, a money award in relation to the scope of coverage.   Michael: Interesting, okay. And something that and we always joke on the show that so often these episodes are self serving that the hosts get to ask these questions that we're interested in anyhow, and then the listeners get the benefit of that. But there's something that I'm curious about is often we hear the term chain of title. And if you can keep your name out of the chain of title, if you're going to be using an LLC, there could be advantages to that. But so my question is, is how far down the chain of title? Do you see people run into issues that involve title insurance?   Dan: Well, I would suggest that more frequently than not, you're going to see stuff, that's more current that was missed. And, you know, one of the things to keep in mind, you know, a lot of times errors occur, you know, any any human endeavor, there can be errors. And so searching errors, for example, can give rise to a significant portion of our, our claims, you know, so basically, we would go in, and search, which, you know, there are other things that could arise too, because if they were not recorded properly, in the land tech, or title records, and so forth, there might be something that's sitting out there straight deed or other things.   So there's a whole range of factors that could give rise to a claim whether and then we would look at whether or not it falls under the scope of coverage. And ultimately, at the end of the day, if we have an obligation, we would try to cure the defect, because ultimately, we want consumers to be, you know, happy about their largest purchase, but if we can't cure that defect, then we we could also provide a monetary award in relation to what that policy provides.   Yeah, to circle back to your question. I mean, you could have something that's way back in the in the records. And remember, you know, it's kind of like a chain of title is basically if you look at the real property records, you know, let's say a county, use a county model, you know, they're, they're basically going to show transaction to transaction and the transaction, and you could go back and actually see what kind of history of who owned, you know the property or portion of the property that you have, you know, you know, oftentimes properties will be larger parcels that are subdivided or platted, into a subdivision and then you can go back to that original deed that came before the plat or subdivision occurred.   But ultimately, at the end of the day, you have the ability to search and go back. And that's what we do to determine whether or not there's any issues in relation to clear ownership rights to a piece of property.   Michael: Interesting. I've got another question for Dan, that I think I already know the answer to, but I'm going to ask it anyhow. Is there ever an instance where you'd recommend not getting title insurance?   Dan: You know, from my standpoint, I know that some people elect not to purchase a, you know, owner's title insurance. Partly, sometimes they just are not well educated as to the risks, or just make the value judgment that I'd rather buy a couch instead of, you know, ensuring, ensuring that I have pure ownership or clear ownership pursuant to this policy, to the title and they're willing to roll the dice. But from my standpoint, personally, I would not roll roll the dice with your largest purchase for most people in their lifetimes. And it's a it's a, it's a, it's a one time payment, that gives you peace of mind, and basically provides you recourse in the event that what you thought you were getting is not what you got.   Michael: No, I think that's very well said. And is it something that you can buy after the fact if you decide this year, hey, I'm gonna roll the dice and maybe next year?   Dan: Wow, I'm, yeah, yeah, no, no, we need you to, we need you to, you know, to buy it at the time of purchase. Because it basically is a it's a snapshot in time. That's, you know, basically we look back, and as of the date of closing, you have these rights, and we insure those rights.   Michael: Okay. So for anybody out there listening, that's thinking is on the fence about whether or not to purchase title insurance with their purchase, think long and hard, because it's a one time deal that you can't go back and redo.   Dan: Yeah, and there's lots of lots of horror stories of people that situations where all of a sudden, things emerge, and they've they've lost their their ownership rights, or or even worse, just getting involved with litigation. If it's a covered matter, you know, the lid, the cost of litigation, something that your policy, you know, basically provides you a defense. And that can be very costly.   Michael: To come out of pocket if you don't have that coverage.   Dan: Yeah. Yeah.   Michael: So let's shift gears here entirely, Dan. And I wonder if you could speak to something that I've been hearing a lot about, which is just wire fraud.   Dan: Yeah, wire transfer fraud is basically a real emerging risks that we see and are working really hard as an industry to educate and take the appropriate steps to minimize, you know, the risks that consumers and others have in relation to, you know, wire transfer fraud, utilized as part of the, the Real Property Acquisition. And, you know, we're kind of in a situation now, where that's by far the most prevalent method, for example, for acquiring a piece of property, you you wire, you determine what your net cost is. And then you wire monies to the recipient, as part of the transaction. You know, in the past, we oftentimes used to certify checks and things like that.   And I imagine way back in the day. You probably if you had good funds you might even have had if it would if you went way, way back, maybe maybe there was a cash transaction,   Michael: A suitcase of cash or a duffel bag.   Dan: Yeah, well, but now there's a lot of limitations as to how much what you can do with cash from from a reporting standpoint, things like that, but I'm just thinking, you know, back in the day when, you know, in the 1800s, or something like that, you might a lot of times that was before title insurance as well, but, you know, cash might have been king.   Now, so just understand it's business, email compromised schemes. It's not just this is not just an issue that we have to deal with in relation to the Real estate acquisition it's it's a, it's a broader attack on the manner in which we communicate and transfer funds in today's economy, but we focus it on it primarily from the standpoint of educating so that homeowners or future homeowners don't all of a sudden find out that they've been scammed. And they've now sent their life savings to a scamster, and aren't in a position to basically purchase the house of their dream i because of certain scamming activities.   And just I don't know how much your audience focuses on this, but we look at it a significant amount of time on this topic, as an industry. And so if you went to alta.org, bat slash wire transfer,   you could get a lot of information on this. And because it's a public service issue, you don't have to be a member to access that collateral. And we've got a lot of great information on there to educate and also to take steps to protect but if I were to back up just a little bit.   Now, these aren't all the most current pieces of data but ALTA did a the American Land Title Association, we will refer to it I'll slip up and call it ALTA as we go forward. But that's what I'm referring to. We did in 2021, wire fraud and cybercrime survey, dental insurance professionals reported cyber criminals attempted to trick employees to wire funds to fraudulent accounts, and about a third of all real estate and mortgage transactions. Just think about that. That's that.   Michael: Wait, did you say a third of all real estate transactions, there was some attempt at fraud?   Dan: A third. And, you know, wire fraud attempts are on the rise nationwide 76% of title agents report a wire fraud attempts were the same or increase in 2020. And also the FBI, internet crime Compliance Center, it's icy three, I mean, for whatever reason, well, we might reference that that's what that means. Recorded 13,648 prospective homebuyers were defrauded out of 213 million through real estate wire fraud. And this was 2020, which is an increase of 70% 17% from the year before. And obviously, cyber taxes as a whole are also on the rise.   And as a reflection of that during the second quarter of 2021, cyber insurance coverage increased 25.5%. So now, withstanding all of the efforts that we and our broader industry partners are taking to alert people of these challenges. But the cyber criminals and fraudsters also are evolving to go after, you know, basically, the wire transfers in real estate and other business, email compromised schemes. And if we were to kind of look back at this, and what are the techniques that they use, just generally, there's there's concepts like social engineering and PHishing, you know, phishing is not with the pole, you know, it's the pH is right,   Michael: You're not going to catch some salmon.   Dan: Yeah, you're not gonna catch salmon or, or, or bass in this example. But basically, what they'll do is they will use their fraudulent approaches to try to infiltrate, and let's just use a consumer as an example. And a lot of consumers will use unsecured email, trance, you know, trans portals. I'm not going to name them, but we all know what's out there. And so you get so basically, they will find ways to get you to click on things or do other things that allow them to plant kind of their, their their cyber tools into your email account. And then when triggers such as real estate transaction or things like that happen, they start to monitor those transactions. And at the last second, then, they they basically would mimic one of the professional email addresses in the involved with a transaction and get the consumer to then wire funds to the wrong recipient.   And, you know, we're talking some of these people, you know, it could be $500,000, or life savings going to purchase a house or 150 years, a million. And all of a sudden, then when they they to show up for closing, and this is not a laughing matter, but it's just amazing how dangerous this is. But they do show up for closing. And then the title company, say says, Well, we are the or the or the lender or whoever the recipient was going to be for the the wire transfer says we've never seen ever received it.   And so there are certain things that we do as an industry to try to come combat this, this this scourge. So basically, from my standpoint, a couple things that you should keep in mind and your audience should keep in mind is what we do as an industry then is we try to do a lot of consumer education, as well as you know, work with our, you know, the realtors, the bankers and others in the broader industry to coordinate and make sure that we can get ahead of this.   But, you know, we we provide consumer warnings about the dangers of this on websites and communications. And then we send notices to consumers, real estate agents and others, that informs them, the parties to the transaction of the title companies wire instructions, that they will never change during the transaction. So we get that set upfront. Because what happens is, there's always a last second change, that gives rise to the diversion of funds to the illicit party's account. And oftentimes, the fraudsters are overseas. And if you don't catch it quickly, it's it's very difficult to claw it back. So you might have 24 to 48 hours after the illicit ACH transfer occurs to pull that money back.   And so from that standpoint, that's why we advise early on in the transaction that you're not going to get an email from us changing the wire transfer, you know, wire wire fraud Academy, the wire transfer instructions. And so, yeah, there's also a couple other things that we look at. You know, we exchanged no numbers. So for example, what the fraudsters will do is also, so they'll mimic a legitimate email address with a diversion. And then they'll have stuff in there. And they might also, you know, have social engineering and follow the council they know the names and who the husband is all this kind of stuff. So that looks real real. And then they basically say, if you have any questions, contact, and I'm not going to pick on Louise, but why not Louise at such and such a number?   Okay, well, Louise is just basically working with the fraudster. So you call and they and they basically have a pat answer, if you were to call. And so basically, we also then, at the beginning of the transaction, want to set the known numbers that if there's any questions they can call, because if you rely upon the email, the email will also cover that contingency to basically complete the scam. And so they're really quite tricky here.   And a couple things that I would mention here, also. So some of the things that we see, for example, the title insurance professionals put in there, they're basically email signature lines, they'll have things like, I'm just going to read a couple here due to increase fraud. Buyer sellers and lenders should confirm all wiring instructions by phone directly with our office before transferring funds to a previously disclosed phone number. I've got another one here. Warning wire fraud advisory, wire fraud and email hacking phishing attacks are on the increase. If you have been asked for a closing transaction with us and you receive an email containing wire transfer instructions, and then an upper case do not respond to the email. Instead, call your escrow officer close closer immediately using previously known contact information and not information provided in the email.   So we provide quite a bit of education and warnings to consumers. But the challenge is this, you know, consumer, we get everybody educated and we get all these transactions that go smoothly. But then, kind of on a rolling basis, you've got a new group of consumers every three months or so.   Michael: Right, right.   Dan: I mean, it's a rolling new group of consumers. So that is a constant need to educate. There's constantly a new group of people out there that that the fraudsters can go after. And so this is kind of a, you know, like the Greek tragedy pushing the rock up the hill, you know, basically, we're always, we're always on top of this, but there's always risk. And so from that standpoint, you know, I really do think we are going to have to keep combating this, and people need to be aware of it. And that's why it's great that you are doing a podcast that highlights these risks so that consumers and others can pay attention to it.   Michael: Yeah, absolutely. And, and we're happy to do it. And so, Dan, if I'm hearing you correctly, it sounds like that initial communication that you're starting to have with your title or escrow closing officer at the beginning of the transaction, is kind of setting the tone or setting up the proper information, if you will, because that those cyber tools that you're mentioning, really sit and kind of wait and lurk for the transaction to occur.   Dan: Yeah, I've been important to write them to that right spot where all of a sudden, they swoop in, and give you Oh, we're changing, where you need to send the money.   And, and if you recall, you know, the average consumer, you know, they're, it's, it's a complex deal. And they've got all kinds of stuff going on. They're arranging for the moving van, they're, you know, you look at the list of things that they're doing in relation to real real property transaction, and moving from one, you know, whether from one home to another, or from an apartment to a home, excuse me, and the like. They're very busy, and they're very easily distracted. And so that's why we really focus on this. If I could, I would also like to highlight some of the stuff that you should do if you if you do find yourself to be evicted.   Michael: Yeah, absolutely.   Dan: Yeah. So, you know, if you if you do discover that funds are transferred to a fraudulent account, you really need to act quickly. And you should contact the Financial Institution immediately upon discovering the financial or the cumulative fraudulent transfer, and request that the financial institution contact the corresponding financial institution where the fraudulent transfer was sent. Now, you also should contact your local Bureau, federal bureau and you know, FBI office, if the wire is recent, the FBI working with the United States Department of Treasury, Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, we call that FinCEN might be able to help return or freeze those funds. And then you could file a complaint regardless of dollar loss with wwe.ic3.gov. And so it's really important for consumers to recognize that if they do find that there's fraudulent activity, they need to act. And like I said before, oftentimes, but not always, but oftentimes, you've got foreign actors that are targeting US citizens to try to divert funds. And so the money could flow into that alternative banking account, bank account that, you know, you didn't want to receive the funds, but then they're going to maybe chop that up and send it in multiple directions real quickly. And so it's really hard to claw that back, if it if it gets into multiple transactions and is overseas.   And so that's why you really need to move quickly. And you You oftentimes are able to recover a good portion, or at least some of the funds that were diverted.   Michael: Okay. And how long should a transaction a wire transfer typically take because I've filled out numerous wire transaction orders, and I said, oh, we'll send it at the end of the day or what have you, and then you'll get a confirmation. So how long should people wait before reaching out to the other party and say, Hey, did you get it without freaking out?   Dan: Well, I think one thing to keep in mind is it's really a good idea to to, you know, confirm stuff contemporaneously? I mean, I wouldn't dink around with this From my standpoint, if you wait a couple days, it's too late.   Michael: Right? Right. But so after initiating a wire, and I called my title escrow officer, and it's been an hour and they haven't received it, should I start sweating bullets?   Dan: These things go pretty quickly.   Michael: Okay,   Dan: So I would move quickly, I don't have an exact timeframe, and we could get that to you to follow up. But from my standpoint, you know, I wouldn't wait more than an hour to get confirmation.   Michael: Okay. Okay, that's great. That's great. Any other tips, tricks, advice for folks that they should be aware of things they can do proactively?   Dan: Yeah, I think I think number one, they just don't click on attachments and emails, if you don't know where it's coming from. Because that's, that's a vehicle to get kind of like what they call a Trojan horse, or, you know, and I'm not a, I'm not a tech expert, per se. So I might use the wrong terminology here. But basically, they'll use something that you click on to basically infiltrate your email system, so that the fraudsters are now inside and can kind of monitor what's going on. And so they can do it here. But there's also risks of them being in there, as well to steal identities and other things that could happen in addition to the challenges that we're talking about today.   Now, but I would also say that, you know, the ALTA website has a lot of great information here. And so I would recommend if people want to follow up on this and have any concerns, and that they could go to that website and look at all the tools. So we've created lots of products, to help raise awareness and protect consumers. So there's a rapid response plan, which is a 10 step guide on what to do and who to contact if you've been hit by wire fraud.   There's also the ALTA registry. And this basically is kind of a phonebook for basically title agents, so that banks can basically look at the title agencies that are on the registry, as well as the underwriters. And we could get into kind of the distinction between the insurance side and the agent side of our business. But suffice it to say, say we don't want to necessarily confuse people. But basically, we have agents who will issue the policies on behalf of the insurance entities and some of the insurance entities in some areas will also have direct operations that do that functionality. The registry basically has all of those different entities identified on there, so that a lender can go there, and essentially verify that who they're dealing with is a legitimate operation. So that's a great tool for the lender lending community to basically reduce their risk.   We've also created the Board of Governors for the American Land Title Association also created an information security committee a couple of years ago, and it to basically examine security matters and threats that affect our membership and by extension consumers. And they basically make cyber awareness, prevention, detection and response and recovery methods for the industry.   We also have, on our website, a page dedicated information security, there's federal and state requirements to protect data, there's also ALTA's best practices, which has pillars of appropriate conduct or recommended conduct, which are all designed to basically, you know, move everything in the right direction. And we have webinars, we've done webinars, we've also have videos and other infographics on there about this challenge that's out there. And so it's a it's really a great, great resource to look at, to basically see what the challenges are and what steps you might want to take. And there's some real great practical advice on there on there as well.   And one thing that we have discovered is that for example, the title agencies and and insurance entities that do the kind of the steps up front so that they've trained their people on this risks are less likely to have a loss. And so it's really a great campaign for everybody to pay attention to. And in that regard, I would just mention one more thing here. And that is that the American Land Title Association, helped form a national coalition called the Coalition to Stop real estate wire fraud. And so the goal of that was to raise awareness about the dangers of mortgage closing schemes and wire transfer fraud across the broader spectrum of our broader industry, you know, the lenders, realtors, and so forth that are involved in in the in the greater ecosphere of what we do, and explains how it happens. It provides tips to prevent it and what to do if you've been targeted by fraud. And there's also a video that can be uploaded, if you have an issue or an issue to share your story.   So there's a lot of resources out here. But from my perspective, we are going to have to keep battling this, you know, attack on kind of the entire system, and the attacks that are kind of perpetrated against consumers that may not be aware that those risks are out there. So we have to educate and provide the tools and then also provide practical methods to minimize the likelihood that the fraudsters are successful. And so we're gonna keep battling this this challenge. And I think that your podcast and getting it out to consumers, so that they become aware that this risk is out there. They just need to be aware and be careful if they get involved in a real estate transaction to, to not let this happen to themselves.   Michael: Yeah. Yeah, that's so great. And we will definitely link in the show notes to that went to the author website, because that's great. That's great. Dan, this has been fantastic and super informative. Any final thoughts before we let you out of here?   Dan: Well, I don't want people to be afraid. I mean, homeownership is great.   Michael: Doom and gloom.   Dan: Don't just don't just keep renting all your life, because you're concerned about wire transfer fraud. But if you do decide to purchase or if it's your second or third time of purchasing, you know, real estate, you know, a home and making those life changing events which are so meaningful. You know, basically make sure that you're aware of these risks, take appropriate action to ensure that you do not become a victim of fraud, and listen to your title professionals as well as the broader, you know, realtors, mortgage, mortgagees and OKC, mortgage companies, lenders and so forth, that all have an interest in making sure that you have a great experience and that you aren't a victim of fraud.   Michael: Love it. Love it. Well, Dan, thank you again, for coming on and spending some time with me. I really appreciate it. And I look forward to chatting with you soon.   Dan: I'm glad to have this conversation and appreciate your taking a moment to address these really important topics. Thanks so much.   Michael: My pleasure. Thank you. Alrighty, everyone, that was our episode a big big, big thank you to Dan and the American Land Title Association. super informative.

So many people around the world have fallen in love with Icelandic music because of the amazing artists from this tiny country in the North Atlantic ocean. Like many industries, the Icelandic music scene has had to pivot during tough times in order for artists to continue working/creating and for the industry itself to keep alive. To get a better insight into how the Icelandic music scene has adapted during this time, I hosted a panel of experts in the industry. These amazing people include María Rut Reynisdóttir is the Head of Cultural Office for the City of Reykjavik and the Project Manager for Reykjavík Music City; Sigtryggur "Siggi" Baldursson is the Managing Director for Iceland Music, whose mission is to help tell the story of Icelandic music around the world, and he was the drummer in the band "The Sugarcubes"; Will Larnach Jones is the Managing Director and Head of Bookings for Iceland Airwaves, one of Iceland's biggest music festivals.

Iceland Music also administers a number of export grants to Icelandic musicians which help them perform internationally. He is also a kind, warm and funny man! And in a former life he was the drummer for The Sugarcubes, who were the first Icelandic band to make big waves overseas, and as such played a huge part in the music / tourism conversation around Iceland, and with the label Bad Taste (Smekkleysa) María Rut Reynisdóttir - Head of the Culture Office in the City of Reykjavík María Rut studied Creative Project and Process Management at the KaosPilot school in Denmark and started her career in Iceland as the Executive Assistant to Magnus Scheving, creator and CEO of the LazyTown children's TV series.

“The porters were fed up”: C.L. Dellums and the rise of America's first Black union

In the early 20th century, the largest employer of Black men in the United States was the Pullman Car Company, which operated luxurious trains that carried millions of passengers around the booming nation in an era before airplanes and interstate highways. Ever since the company's founding during the Civil War, Pullman exclusively hired Black men as porters to keep the train cars clean and serve the white passengers. Although the job was prestigious, by the 1920s porters were fed up with the low pay, long hours, and abusive conditions. Their struggle to unionize became one of the most significant civil rights conflicts of the pre-WWII era and laid the groundwork for the movement led by Martin Luther King Jr. in later years. This episode explores how Oakland's C.L. Dellums helped the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters triumph over one of the nation's most powerful corporations, and also his massive impact on challenging widespread racial discrimination throughout California. Dellums helped open jobs in wartime industries up for Black workers, setting the stage for the “second great migration” on the West Coast; he organized early protests against police brutality; and he helped end widespread racial segregation among powerful labor unions. His goal was nothing short of “total freedom and equality.” Today's guest is Susan D. Anderson, the History Curator and Program Manager at the California African American Museum, and the author of a forthcoming book on California's Black history. This episode also features a segment from the Black Liberation Walking Tour which includes the voices of C.L. Dellums and his daughter Marva.

1. Facebook Updates Measurement Process for Ads Reach - Facebook has announced that it will begin counting people who've not connected their Facebook and Instagram accounts in its Accounts Center as separate entities for ad purposes – i.e. if your accounts are not connected, Facebook will now assume that your Facebook and Instagram profiles are two different people.Facebook's Accounts Center, which is accessible via your settings in each of its apps (Facebook. Instagram and Messenger), enables you to connect your accounts on each, so that you can do things like cross-post content, log-in using your credentials from each app, use Facebook Pay and more.“Previously, we counted someone with multiple accounts as one person for ads purposes if they linked their Facebook and Instagram accounts via those apps, or if we believed that the accounts were owned by the same person. For example, if someone used the same email address across their Facebook and Instagram accounts or accessed both platforms from the same device, we counted them as one person when they interacted with ads.”So this will make Facebook's ad reach numbers look a lot better, with much broader scope, based on variable accounting. This is interesting because recently Facebook broadened its campaign reach estimates, with its ‘Potential Reach' data now being displayed in ranges instead of specific numbers. You can read more about Facebook's coming measurement update here.2. Instagram Now Supports Live Scheduling for Instagram Live Videos - Starting immediately, Instagram has added a new option to schedule upcoming IG Live broadcasts in the app, with users then able to tap through to get a reminder notification on the day of the broadcast. Broadcasters will now be able to schedule an upcoming stream, up to 90 days in advance, from the live composer, which can include a title description, as well as product tags, if you're looking to promote such in your stream.The option to schedule your streams provides even more potential on this front, with users, as noted, then able to register for reminders, which will be sent through to them the day before the broadcast, then 15 minutes before the stream begins.3. Facebook Audio Rooms Now Available to Public Figures Globally & More - Facebook has announced an expansion of its audio social plans, with live audio rooms being made available to public figures globally, and a new, dedicated space within the Watch tab to help users connect to all of the platform's various audio options.Facebook's Live Audio Rooms will be displayed at the top of the News Feed for those following each creator (even above Stories), while they'll also be accessible via a feed post.The playback format is very Clubhouse-esque, showing the speakers and listeners in separate sections, while Reactions icons will float up the screen as they're applied, similar to video live-streams.The new expansion will mean that many more people will now be able to tune in to Facebook audio broadcasts, though creation will remain restricted to only public figures and those with verified accounts at this stage.Facebook will also now enable all groups to host live audio rooms, another way to boost interest in the option in a more confined, specific contextual environment.4. Remove Your Twitter Followers Without Having To Block Them - The newest update released by Twitter as a part of its bracket of advanced privacy features includes the ability in the first and foremost to remove a user from following while not blocking them. This came around as a blessing as blocking sends a notification to the user of being blocked creating discomfort whereas removing a user as a follower would now not send a notification to the user of any such activity.5. Twitter Launches Twitter Spaces 'Spark' Program to Fund and Support Audio Creators - Per Twitter, “The Twitter Spaces Spark Program is a three-month accelerator initiative that's designed to discover and reward great Spaces on Twitter with financial, technical, and marketing support. We're looking for emerging Creators who are passionate about the live social audio format and interested in creating recurring programming on Spaces.” This is similar to Clubhouse's Creator Accelerator program, while TikTok has also implemented its own Creator Fund, as has Pinterest, Snapchat, etc. So looks like the major social media platforms are now looking to provide more support and assistance for creators, in order to build their content eco-systems, and keep their best talent aligned to their apps.Twitter's Spark program will provide the chosen participants with $2500 per month, along with ad credits and custom Spaces swag. They'll also be able to connect with the Spaces dev team, and get early access to new features, while Twitter may also promote their broadcasts via its brand handles.From the program overview, it is evident that Twitter is particularly interested in applicants that ‘have an established show in social audio on other platforms'.To be eligible for Phase 1 of the Twitter Spaces Spark program, you need to be US-based, and have over 5,000 followers in the app. You also need to commit to hosting a minimum of two Spaces per week – more info here.6. Twitter Now Supports Multi-Destination URL's for Carousel Ads - Twitter has announced an update to its Carousel Ad format where it gives you the option to add custom headlines and landing pages into each frame of your Carousel Ads, which will provide more options to build responsive ads for variable audiences within one campaign.This will provide more capacity to utilize different ad creative within a single campaign, highlighting specific features or use-cases to help broaden appeal. It could also help in your targeting segmentation, with each click highlighting the specific elements of interest for each user, helping to categorize responses.Twitter says that it's been testing the new option for the past few months, with beta advertisers seeing a 25% lift in click-through rates, on average, for campaigns that optimize for site visit conversions (relative to single-asset ads).7. Microsoft Updates Its Smart Pages Website Builder - This February, Microsoft launched Smart Pages, a free website builder service to help small businesses that may not have had websites.“With Smart Pages standalone mode, you can create, edit, and publish your website for free — no payment information required. We know that not every business with a web presence is prepared to advertise online and want to give everyone the access to Smart Pages,” wrote Will Rivitz, Program Manager, and Cristiano Ventura Sr. Product Marketing Manager. If business owners choose to partake in Microsoft Advertising later, they can easily sign up when they're ready.The new Smart Pages reporting feature allows marketers to track pageviews, clicks, and more all within the platform. “By tracking these metrics over time, you'll see how the improvements and edits you make affect your customers' experiences,” said Rivitz and Ventura.Marketers will be able to create a new Smart Pages website directly from their Bing Places account and integrate the two properties. “Customers viewing your business on Bing Places will be able to go directly to your Smart Page, where you can show even more information,” according to the announcement.8. On Mobile, Google Search Result Will Scroll Continuously - Rolling out over the next two weeks starting October 14, Google's mobile search results will offer infinite scroll, what Google is calling continuous scroll. That is, as you scroll, Google will not show you the “more results” button when you reach the bottom of the page, instead, Google will just load the next page of results automatically. Per Google, it does affect the Google Search Ads a little. “As part of this change to how search results show, we're redistributing the number of text ads that can show between the top and bottom of pages for US-English mobile queries. Now, text ads can show at the top of the second page and beyond, while fewer text ads will show at the bottom of each page. There is no change to how Shopping and Local ads show. “ And yes, you Ads can be shown more than once. Finally, as a result of this change, expect to see more mobile impressions for Search, Shopping, and Local campaigns that serve ads on US-English queries, and potentially result in lower CTR. However, Google expects clicks, conversions, average CPC, and average CPA to remain flat.This change to mobile search results is expected to roll out to additional countries and languages next year.

The United States is facing a moral crisis prompted by rapid increases in cross-border migration and global displacement. For too long, the debate around immigration policy has been framed with false choices that have resulted in political stalemates at a great human cost. Crisis after crisis, Americans are asked to choose between security and unbridled compassion. Is there a better way to safeguard our immigration system while welcoming the stranger? Daniel Garza is the president of the LIBRE Initiative. Born in the Central Valley of California, he would migrate with his family annually from their ancestral hometown of Garza Gonzalez in Nuevo Leon, Mexico- throughout California, Nebraska and Washington State following the crop season as farm workers until he was 19 years of age.Mr. Garza began his in public service career as congressional staff assistant for U.S. congressman Richard "Doc" Hastings and was later elected as councilman for the city of Toppenish, Washington in 1996.

In 2007, Daniel joined Univision to host and co-produce "Agenda Washington", a weekly Spanish-language news talk show covering the issues impacting the U.S. Hispanic community. Mr. Garza was appointed to serve on the Board of The Harvard Journal of Hispanic Policy in 2016, was designated as one of Washington, D.C.'s “Influentials” by Congressional Quarterly Magazine in 2018, and in 2019, Daniel was named 1 of the 50 most influential voices in Washington DC by The National Journal.Elizabeth Neumann served during the George W. Bush administration managing President Bush's Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, which involved working with the Departments of Education and Housing Development. From 2003 to 2005, Neumann worked at the White House as part of the inaugural staff of the Homeland Security Council post 9/11. The job included working with the different government security agencies to counter terrorism. Neumann served as an executive assistant to Homeland Security Advisor, John A Gordon, shifting eventually to serve as a Homeland Security policy advisor for a year and as Associate Director of the Domestic Counterterrorism Directorate. As a director, she advised the presidential appointee on Homeland Security policy initiatives. Neumann left the Bush Administration and worked with the Senior Advisor to the Program Manager for the Information Sharing Environment, Office of the Director of National Intelligence.Neumann joined DHS Secretary John Kelly as his Deputy Chief of Staff in 2017; and she served in the same capacity under Acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke.

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Monday 27th September. It's Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don't have to. Thank you to MYEV.com for helping make this show, they've built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It's a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too. Hello to a new Patreon EXECUTIVE PRODUCER JERRY ADAMS VALUE OF BATTERY METALS IN NEW ELECTRIC CARS SURGES 177% "The EV Metal Index, which tracks the value of battery metals in newly registered passenger EVs (including hybrids) around the world, totalled $537.1 million in July, an increase of 177% over the same month last year, bringing year to date total to $3.21 billion. " says Mining.com: "That means that almost as much EV battery metal business was done in the first seven months of 2021 than 2017 ($1.1 billion) and 2018 ($2.2 billion) combined.  Total battery capacity of EVs sold during July almost doubled year on year to 19.9 GWh, according to Adamas Intelligence, which tracks demand for EV batteries by chemistry, cell supplier and capacity in over 100 countries. Average lithium on a per vehicle basis including hybrids was up 19% year over year in July, jumping from 13.1kg to just shy of 16kg. Lithium prices are up a stunning 162% year to date and now top $21,000 a tonne."

"It turns out that the new 2022 Rivian R1T is classified as a heavy-duty pickup based on the information published in the Rivian owner's manual. Is it all good or are there causes for concern? Here are all of the details. Let's take a close look at this truck's very unique features." repotrs The Fast Lane Truck: "The current manual is approximately 178 pages long and provides great insight into this truck's features and capabilities. The U.S. EPA agency uses a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) classification to separate all vehicles into various classes with different emissions and efficiency rating requirements. The Rivian pickup truck GVWR is listed at 8,532 lbs. This puts the R1T into the EPA Class 2b. We still do not have official information about the Ford F-150 Lightning or GMC Hummer EV truck weight ratings. The Lightning GVWR may be close to 8,500 lbs. The GMC Hummer EV truck GVWR is unknown. There is a report that the GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 curb weight is 9,046 lbs. This may put the GMC Hummer EV truck GVWR well above 10,000 lbs."

The two plants in contention are Ford's two former joint venture facilities with Getrag, now fully Ford owned. One is in Halewood, England,  and the other is in Cologne, Germany." says Automotive News:  "The winning plant would build "e-drive" units that include an electric motor, a transmission and inverter for electric vehicles, a source said. Moving from building transmissions for internal combustion engine vehicles to e-drives for electric vehicles would secure the future of either plant as Ford moves to selling only full-electric passenger cars in Europe by 2030.". https://www.autonews.com/automakers-suppliers/ford-weighs-uk-or-germany-electric-drivetrain-production NIO ET7 ACHIEVES 0.208 DRAG COEFFICIENT "NIO has officially announced that its upcoming ET7 flagship model will have a drag coefficient of 0.208, which is the second-best result for production models worldwide (on par with Tesla). A better result is noted by the Mercedes-Benz EQS 450+ (0.200). The new Tesla Model S also has a drag coefficient of 0.208, while the EQS 580 4MATIC is right behind at 0.209. The Lucid Air is at 0.21." says Mark Kane at InsideEVs: "NIO expects that its upcoming 150 kWh battery option (in late 2022) will allow the car to achieve an NEDC range of more than 1,000 km (622 miles)." This is what NIO had to say: ""The aerodynamics team of NIO has been deeply engaged into the design and engineering of the ET7 since the very beginning. With ergonomics and cabin comfort uncompromised, the ET7's front windshield inclination angle, radii and angles between the headlights and the front fenders, fastback design and ducktail spoiler, C pillar character lines, approach and departure angles, and wheels are optimized to make the model more aerodynamic. In the meantime, the Watchtower sensor layout on the roof, on the one hand, enables a more commanding view of the ultralong-range high-resolution LiDAR and 8-megapixel high-resolution cameras, and redefines the exterior design in the autonomous driving era, yet on the other hand, it also poses a huge challenge to the vehicle's aero efficiency. The aerodynamics team has spared no efforts in perfecting the inclination and radii of the LiDAR and cameras, and excelling its aerodynamic performance."

While there were rumors about such a switch circulating awhile back, C&D says it's a sure thing and that Porsche will be ditching the Boxster's mid-engine layout for full electrification. That's awesome news on its own but now we're wondering if an all-electric Audi TT could/should follow?" asks Quattrodaily.com: "The Porsche Taycan weighs over 5,000, which is just far too much for a sports car. So Porsche apparently has a target curb weight of just over 3,600 lbs for the new Boxster, which will be great for an EV sports car but will take considerable work to meet. If Porsche splits that workload with Audi, though, it not only becomes easier but also cheaper. Additionally, both brands could profit off of the work with sports cars of their own." https://www.quattrodaily.com/next-gen-porsche-boxster-will-be-electric-will-the-audi-tt-follow/ BATTERY LIFESPAN PROJECT TAKES SHAPE IN THE UK “The battery analytics specialist Silver Power System partnered with Imperial College, London EV Company (LEVC) and JSCA, the research and development division of Watt Electric Vehicle Company, on an electric vehicle battery research programme designed to predict battery lifespan." says electrive: "The project will make use of digital twin technology, which simulates a digital counterpart to a real-world system." Liam Mifsud, Program Manager, Silver Power Systems added: “On top of using a combination of real-world data, machine learning and the digital twin to predict future battery degradation, we can use this technology to update an EV's software via the cloud to change algorithms or parameters to optimise the performance of the battery as the cells age and maximise battery life.” Read more: https://www.electrive.com/2021/09/23/battery-lifespan-project-takes-shape-in-the-uk *AD BREAK* BEWARE OF SLOW MOVING TESLAS Read more: https://electrek.co/2021/09/26/slow-teslas-everywhere-24-hours-into-the-fsd-button-what-is-your-safety-score-beta/ THE RULES OF GETTING ACCESS TO TESLA BETA SOFTWARE Read more: https://www.vice.com/en/article/m7ezxq/how-teslas-self-driving-beta-testers-protect-the-company-from-critics TESLA IN CHINA TO HIT 300K CARS Read more: https://www.reuters.com/business/autos-transportation/tesla-shanghai-make-300000-cars-jan-sept-despite-chip-shortage-sources-2021-09-26/ KEY TESLA SUPPLIERS HALT PRODUCTION Read more: https://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Technology/Key-Apple-Tesla-suppliers-halt-production-amid-China-power-crunch RECORD MONTH FOR PLUGIN VEHICLES IN CHINA!
