The Department of Justice secured a guilty plea from NatWest Markets, the newly-named Royal Bank of Scotland, for trade manipulation, referred to as “spoofing,” in U.S. Treasury markets. The NatWest resolution reflected new changes in DOJ's white collar enforcement policies, including acknowledgement and consideration of NatWest's prior misconduct (criminal and civil) and appointment of an independent compliance monitor. NatWest was not offered a deferred or non-prosecution agreement; instead it was required to plead guilty to a criminal charge of securities fraud and another charge of wire fraud.Under the plea agreement, NatWest agreed that during the period of 2008 to 2014, traders in its Stamford and London offices spoofed the market for Treasury futures contracts. In addition, two traders at NatWest's Singapore branch spoofed the secondary cash market for Treasury securities in 2018. The spoofing scheme violated a 2017 non-prosecution agreement between the United States and NatWest's broker-dealer subsidiary, and occurred while NatWest was on probation for a separate conviction for manipulation of the foreign currency exchange market.DOJ cited NatWest's status as a repeat offenders as justification for requiring a criminal guilty plea to two counts. Under the plea agreement, NatWest Markets will pay $35 million in restitution, forfeiture and a criminal fine, serve three years' probation and take on an independent compliance monitor.In this Episode, Michael Volkov reviews the NatWest prosecution and settlement agreement.

Play during opening: 0:00-0:10 …and more on today's CrossPolitic Daily News Brief. This is Toby Sumpter. Today is Friday, January 14, 2022. SCOTUS Blocks Biden VAX Mandate & Upholds Healthcare Worker Mandate https://www.cnbc.com/2022/01/13/supreme-court-ruling-biden-covid-vaccine-mandates.html The Supreme Court on Thursday blocked the Biden administration from enforcing its sweeping vaccine-or-test requirements for large private companies, but allowed a vaccine mandate to stand for medical facilities that take Medicare or Medicaid payments. The rulings came three days after the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's emergency measure for businesses started to take effect. The mandate required that workers at businesses with 100 or more employees get vaccinated or submit a negative Covid test weekly to enter the workplace. It also required unvaccinated workers to wear masks indoors at work. “Although Congress has indisputably given OSHA the power to regulate occupational dangers, it has not given that agency the power to regulate public health more broadly,” the court wrote in an unsigned opinion. “Requiring the vaccination of 84 million Americans, selected simply because they work for employers with more than 100 employees, certainly falls in the latter category,” the court wrote. President Joe Biden, in a statement, said the Supreme Court chose to block requirements that are life-saving for workers. Biden called on states and businesses to step up and voluntarily institute vaccination requirements to protect workers, customers and the broader community. “The Court has ruled that my administration cannot use the authority granted to it by Congress to require this measure, but that does not stop me from using my voice as President to advocate for employers to do the right thing to protect Americans' health and economy,” Biden said. In a separate, simultaneously released ruling on the administration's vaccination rules for health-care workers, a 5-4 majority sided with the Biden administration. “We agree with the Government that the [Health and Human Services] Secretary's rule falls within the authorities that Congress has conferred upon him,” said the majority, writing that the rule “fits neatly within the language of the statute.” “After all, ensuring that providers take steps to avoid transmitting a dangerous virus to their patients is consistent with the fundamental principle of the medical profession: first, do no harm,” the majority opinion read. Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Amy Coney Barrett, four of the six conservatives on the nine-seat bench, dissented. Kavanaugh and Roberts joined the three liberals to enforce this ruling. “I do not think that the Federal Government is likely to be able to show that Congress has authorized the unprecedented step of compelling over 10,000,000 healthcare workers to be vaccinated on pain of being fired,” Alito wrote in his dissent. FDA Issues Racist Triage Rationing for COVID Treatments https://freebeacon.com/coronavirus/food-and-drug-administration-drives-racial-rationing-of-covid-drugs/ Fron the Washington Free Beacon: In New York, racial minorities are automatically eligible for scarce COVID-19 therapeutics, regardless of age or underlying conditions. In Utah, "Latinx ethnicity" counts for more points than "congestive heart failure" in a patient's "COVID-19 risk score"—the state's framework for allocating monoclonal antibodies. And in Minnesota, health officials have devised their own "ethical framework" that prioritizes black 18-year-olds over white 64-year-olds—even though the latter are at much higher risk of severe disease. These schemes have sparked widespread condemnation of the state governments implementing them. But the idea to use race to determine drug eligibility wasn't hatched in local health departments; it came directly from the federal Food and Drug Administration. When the FDA issued its emergency use authorizations for monoclonal antibodies and oral antivirals, it authorized them only for "high risk" patients—and issued guidance on what factors put patients at risk. One of those factors was race. The FDA "fact sheet" for Sotrovimab, the only monoclonal antibody effective against the Omicron variant, states that "race or ethnicity" can "place individual patients at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19." The fact sheet for Paxlovid, Pfizer's new antiviral pill, uses the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's definition of "high risk," which states that "systemic health and social inequities" have put minorities "at increased risk of getting sick and dying from COVID-19." The guidance sheets are nonbinding and do not require clinicians to racially allocate the drugs. But states have nonetheless relied on them to justify race-based triage. "The FDA has acknowledged that in addition to certain underlying health conditions, race and ethnicity ‘may also place individual patients at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19,'" Minnesota's plan reads. "FDA's acknowledgment means that race and ethnicity alone, apart from other underlying health conditions, may be considered in determining eligibility for [monoclonal antibodies]." Utah's plan contains similar language. In a section on the "Ethical Justification for Using Race/Ethnicity in Patient Selection," it notes that the FDA "specifically states that race and ethnicity may be considered when identifying patients most likely to benefit from this lifesaving treatment." The FDA declined to comment on either state's plan, saying only that "there are no limitations on the authorizations that would restrict their use in individuals based on race." The triage plans are part of a broader push to rectify racial health disparities through race-conscious means. In March of last year, for example, two doctors at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston outlined an "antiracist agenda for medicine" that involved "offering preferential care based on race." And last year, Vermont and New Hampshire both gave racial minorities priority access to the COVID-19 vaccine, resulting in at least one formal civil rights complaint against New Hampshire. The trend has alarmed Roger Severino, the former civil rights director at the Department of Health and Human Services, who called racial preferences in medicine a "corrosive and grossly unfair" practice. "Our civil rights laws are not suspended during a public health emergency," Severino said. "We should never deny someone life-saving health care because of the color of their skin." The triage plans show how federal guidelines can encourage this sort of race discrimination. They also suggest that the FDA is making political judgments, not just scientific ones. "They're injecting politics into science," said a former senior HHS official. "That's something the Trump administration was pilloried for allegedly doing." One clear sign of that politicization, several legal and medical experts said, is the guidance's double standard between race and sex. Men in the United States have proven to be about 60 percent more likely than women to die of the disease, according to research from the Brookings Institution, and within some age brackets the mortality gap is even larger. But the FDA doesn't list sex as a risk factor anywhere in its guidance. And while the Utah scheme does take it into account, the New York and Minnesota schemes do not. Nor do they or the FDA give any weight to geography and socioeconomic status, both of which are associated with COVID-19 mortality. Instead, the triage plans give more weight to race than to many comorbidities. In Minnesota's scoring system, "BIPOC status" is worth two points, the same as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, whereas "hypertension in a patient 55 years and older" is worth just one. In Utah's scoring system, "Non-white race or Hispanic/Latinx ethnicity" is worth two points—the same amount as diabetes, obesity, and "severely immunocompromised"—while hypertension, congestive heart failure, chronic pulmonary disease, and "shortness of breath" count for one each. Men do receive one extra point under the Utah scheme, on the grounds that "male gender is associated with increased risk of severe COVID-19." Nonbinary patients, the document says, "may choose to answer" questions about their gender identity "with that background information." Speaking of Woke medicine… Microsoft WORD Will Now Offer Woke Corrections https://notthebee.com/article/microsoft-word-introduces-new-woke-feature-to-monitor-your-language?fbclid=IwAR0sxOqYrccyxxhgAfuKMSuVVCtBFRRQaHfC8qs1PZ3HmOtL4S6PU6Z8DAE From Not the Bee: Microsoft has just introduced a woke, politically correct feature that I don't think anyone ever asked for… Traditionally, Microsoft Word has been used by its 250 million users for things such as spelling, punctuation, and grammar checks. But that wasn't enough for the tech giant. They (probably) thought, "spelling and grammar checks are great and all but what we really want to do is influence and control the masses." Control is the biggest rave these days. Word will now highlight no-no words with a purple line beneath any problematic words or phrases that focus on gender, age, sexual orientation, ethnicity or even "socioeconomic status." Red lines are for spelling errors. Green lines for grammar mistakes. And now, purple lines are politically correct language police alerts. If you type a bigoted word like, let's say... "postman," Word will offer less offensive, gender-neutral alternatives like "mail carrier" or "postal worker." The software also suggests altering astronaut Neil Armstrong's famous quote from "one giant leap for mankind," to "humankind" or "humanity" instead. Who knew Neil Armstrong was such a sexist bigot... Microsoft Word knew. In the lyrics to Barry Manilow's party favourite Copacabana, Microsoft suggests Lola be referred to as a "dancer," "performer" or "performing artist" rather than a "showgirl." Word is not just policing your language (and by default, your thoughts) but it seems as though Microsoft wants us to re-write and re-imagine history by suggesting we change famous quotes. It also proposes changing "maid" to "house cleaner." Other changes include "headmaster" (Word suggests "principal"), "mistress" ("lover"), "master" ("expert"), "manpower" ("workforce") and "heroine" ("hero"). This isn't the first time Microsoft is cracking down on language, and it probably won't be the last! Just last year, Microsoft 365 tried to filter swearing and "bad behavior." Microsoft was also ridiculed in November over a video presentation showing senior execs introducing themselves by citing their race and gender pronouns. Marketing manager Nic Fillingham was filmed saying: "I'm a Caucasian man with glasses and a beard. I go by he/him."

A Federal Agency Has Begun Collecting Names & Religious Exemption Records https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/jan/11/biden-administration-planning-lists-employees-seek/ The Washington Times reports: An obscure federal agency has proposed creating a database capturing the names and “personal religious information” of government employees who submit “religious accommodation requests” to be exempted from the Biden administration's COVID-19 vaccine mandate. At least seven other federal agencies, including five Cabinet departments, are apparently setting up similar “personal religious information” databases, according to an analyst at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank in the District. The federal Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency for the District of Columbia, or CSOSA, published a “notice of a new system of records” in the Federal Register on Tuesday. The agency, which supervises defendants awaiting trial as well as parolees, aims to “reduce recidivism” and “integrate offenders into the community by connecting them with resources and interventions.” The federal departments of Treasury, the Interior, Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services, and Transportation, as well as the General Services Administration and the Securities and Exchange Commission, have each published proposed rule-makings to implement “systems of records” tracking their workers' religious accommodation requests. While there is “some data collection that is likely and legally permissible under Title VII, when an individual at a covered agency requests a religious accommodation,” Sarah Parshall Perry, a legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation's Institute for Constitutional Government, said, “we have not seen it on a broad scale like this ever.” President Biden's COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal workers took effect Nov. 22 under an executive order he issued Sept. 9. The executive order said its terms were “subject to such exceptions as required by law.” “We're not clear on what personal religious information is going to be gathered” under the CSOSA proposal, Ms. Perry said, adding that numerous sticky questions will come up. “How does one as a federal agency determine the sincerity or lack thereof of an individual's religious beliefs?” she asked rhetorically. “Normally, information like that goes directly to the [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission] and is maintained for internal purposes, just in the case that there is a future dispute about whether or not religious discrimination exists. However, we're not told why or how this information is being used. And that smacks of religious discrimination on a grand scale.” Psalm of the Day: 23 0:20-0:54, 3:33-4:11 The King of Love my shepherd is… Good Shepherd, may I sing thy praise, within thy house forever.

Confirmation hearings for Fed Chair Powell's second term highlighted the challenges for the year ahead. Inflation concerns fueled by high demand and disrupted supply chains, a tight labor market and the trajectory of the ongoing pandemic will make guessing the Fed's next moves difficult in 2022.----- Transcript -----Welcome to Thoughts on the Market. I'm Michael Zezas, Head of Public Policy Research and Municipal Strategy for Morgan Stanley. Along with my colleagues, bringing you a variety of perspectives, I'll be talking about the intersection between U.S. public policy and financial markets. It's Thursday, January 13th at 10:00 a.m. in New York. A key focus in D.C. this week is the Senate confirmation hearings for Fed Chair Jay Powell, who's been nominated for another term at the helm of the Federal Reserve. Whenever the Fed chair speaks, it's must-see TV for bond investors. And this remains as true as ever this week. See, the Fed has a really tough job ahead of them. The economy is humming, and it's nearing time to tighten monetary policy and rein in inflation. We know from their most recent meeting minutes that the Fed sees it this way. But how quickly to do it, and by what method to do it, well, that's more up for debate. That's because, in fairness to the Fed, there's no real template for the challenge that's ahead of them. The pandemic and the economic recovery from it have presented an unusual and hard to gauge set of inputs to monetary policy decision making. Take inflation, for example. There's no shortage of potential overlapping causes for the currently high inflation reads: supply chain bottlenecks; an unprecedented rapid rebound in demand for goods, both in absolute terms and relative to services; a sluggish labor force participation rate; and, influencing each of these variables, the trajectory of a global pandemic. The Fed's job, of course, is to assess to what degree these factors are temporary or enduring, and calibrate monetary policy accordingly to bring inflation to target. But to state the obvious, this is complicated. So it's not surprising that the recent Fed minutes showed they're considering a wide range of monetary tightening options. A lot is on the table around the number of rate hikes, pace of rate hikes and pace of balance sheet normalization. We expect Chair Powell will be further underscoring this desire for optionality in monetary policy in his forthcoming statements. Of course, another phrase for optionality might be policy uncertainty, and this is exactly the point we think bond investors should focus on. Precisely guessing the Fed's every move is likely less important than understanding the Fed has, and can continue, to change its approach to monetary tightening as it collects more data and better understands the current inflation dynamic. This is the genesis of the recent uptick in bond market volatility, which we expect will be an enduring feature of 2022. But volatility can mean opportunity, particularly for credit investors, in our view. Corporate and municipal bond credit quality is very strong, but both markets have a history of underperforming during moments of Treasury market volatility. That's why my colleagues and I are recommending for both asset classes to start the year with portfolios positioned cautiously, allowing you to take advantage of better valuations when they present themselves. In this way, like the Fed, you too will have options to deal with uncertainty. Thanks for listening.

Turismo) 41,300 Original Source : https://www.volkswagenag.com/en/news/2022/01/volkswagen-group-on-course-for-new-auto.html FACELIFTED AUDI E-TRON COULD BE RENAMED THE Q8 E-TRON - Spy photographers have snapped the facelifted Audi E-Tron on multiple occasions, but the model could adopt a new name when it is introduced later this year. - According to Automobilwoche, the updated crossover will be known as the Q8 E-Tron. While the move remains unconfirmed, it makes a lot of sense as the E-Tron moniker has been something of an oddity as there's no number associated with it to tell customers its positioning. - it appears Audi decided to bring forward the introduction of the Q8 E-Tron moniker from 2026 to 2022. This also suggests the facelifted model will stick around for approximately four years, before the all-new Q8 E-Tron is introduced. Original Source : https://www.carscoops.com/2022/01/facelifted-audi-e-tron-could-be-renamed-the-q8-e-tron/ PORSCHE SPENDING $113 MILLION TO BUY OUT OF PROJECT ARTEMIS - Audi made big headlines awhile back, with its Project Artemis group of semi-autonomous cars. Part of that Project Artemis were cars like the Sky Sphere, a stunning open-top GT car, and the Grand Sphere, a luxurious four-door with a lounge-like cabin. All Artemis-based models will push autonomy to the forefront of their design objectives. - Porsche — despite being part of the VW Group and a usual partner with Audi in EVs — doesn't want any part of that. In fact, it's so against the idea of making heavily autonomous vehicles that it's actually paying its parent company to not be a part of Project Artemis. - According to this new report from Automotive News, Porsche is going to pay Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles 100 million euros ($113 million) to buy itself out of Project Artemis. - Instead, Porsche is going to build its own new flagship electric performance car, currently internally known as “K1”, which will be built on the PPE (Premium Platform Electric) platform. Original Source : https://www.quattrodaily.com/porsche-buy-out-project-artemis/ RIVIAN FILES TRADEMARK FOR ELECTRIC BIKES - Electric vehicle maker Rivian filed a new trademark for bicycles and electric bikes, as well as their corresponding structural parts. The move might signal that Rivian is considering getting on the e-bike demand train and diversifying its portfolio with a product that is cheaper to produce at scale than electric pickup trucks and in line with its targeted “adventure” seeking demographic. - Last year, Porsche launched two new e-bikes that were designed with the spirit of the Taycan Cross Turismo. BMW has also released plans to produce several e-bikes and other micromobility vehicles lately, as well, like its all-electric CE 04 scooter. Original Source : https://techcrunch.com/2022/01/10/rivian-files-trademark-for-electric-bikes/ HERE IS TESLA'S CCS2 CHARGE PORT ON A MODEL X IN TAIWAN - After seeing Tesla's new Model S with matrix LED headlights and revised taillight, we now have our very first look at the CCS2 charge port on a Model X refresh in Taiwan. We should see the CCS2 port on the Model S refresh, soon. - DDCAR shared some images on Facebook tonight (via @EndlessPlaid) and one of them is the new CCS2 charge port on the Model X. - The new charging door opens up at an angle, looking like one of the Falcon Wing doors on the Model X. As you can see, gone is the LED ring, and instead we have a lit-up Tesla logo as seen on a Model 3 and Model Y. Original Source : https://teslanorth.com/2022/01/10/here-is-teslas-ccs2-charge-port-on-a-model-x-in-taiwan-pic/ TESLA IS GETTING A NEW BATCH OF GIGA PRESS DELIVERIES IN GIGAFACTORY TEXAS - Recent drone flyovers at the Gigafactory Texas site have revealed that Tesla is currently receiving what appears to be a new batch of Giga Press parts. If the new shipments are for the Model Y's 6,000-ton die-casting machines, it would suggest that Giga Texas would soon have four of the house-sized contraptions. - With the arrival of what appears to be the fourth 6,000-ton Model Y Giga Press, all eyes are now on the Giga Texas complex for the first signs of IDRA's 8,000-ton Giga Press. The 8,000 ton Giga Press would be used for the Cybertruck's underbody, and it would truly be one of the largest of its kind in the market.

Camp Albemarle seeks support for a plan to winterize the Hamner Lodge, a structure built in 1941 by the CCC and used by every 4th and 5th grade student in Charlottesville and Albemarle for the study ecology for over 20 years.

Downed tree branches due to heavy snow have knocked out power lines. As of 9 a.m. this morning, Dominion Energy reported 21,152 customers without power in Albemarle and 4,619 customers in Charlottesville. Nearly all customers in Louisa remained without power as the sun rose. Around two-thirds of Fluvanna customers were without power. Consult their outage map for updated information. The storm canceled the meetings of both the Louisa County Board of Supervisors and the Charlottesville City Council. Louisa will meet tonight beginning at 5 p.m. to select a chair and vice chair before going into closed session. The new City Council will meet tomorrow at 5:30 p.m. to go into closed session before an open session scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Trash service in the city of Charlottesville was delayed yesterday and has been canceled for today. That will mean a two-day delay for city residents beginning tomorrow when Monday’s service will resume. The service week will conclude on Sunday. Learn more in this release.Elsewhere in Virginia, I-95 south of D.C. remains close at publication with reports of thousands of stranded drivers. That includes Senator Tim Kaine. Pandemic update: FDA approved Pfizer booster for 12+The omicron surge continues in Virginia with the Virginia Department of Health reporting another 15,449 new cases and the percent positivity statewide has now increased to 29.9 percent. The percent positivity in the Blue Ridge Health District is at 22.8 percent and there are 326 new cases. District officials will hold a virtual town hall meeting tonight beginning at 7 p.m. and the main topic is local guidance on new CDC rules related to quarantine and isolation following a diagnosis. (meeting info)On Monday, the Food and Drug Administration expanded the use of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in three ways. Individuals between the age of 12 and 15 will soon be able to get a single booster dose. They’ve also allowed a shortening of the time between completing the first two doses and the booster to a minimum of five months. Thirdly, children between five and 11 with certain immunocompromised conditions will also be able for a third shot of the primary series. According to a press release, the FDA analyzed data from Israel where the booster has been authorized for those between 12 and 15. They argue the data shows the benefits of protection from new variants outweighs the potential risks. Virginia Mortgage Relief If you or someone you know is having trouble paying your mortgage, the Commonwealth of Virginia has a new relief program. Applications are now open for the program, which follows on the heels of the Virginia Rent Relief Program. “The Commonwealth has implemented rent and mortgage relief programs through designated state and federal resources,” reads a press release from outgoing Governor Ralph Northam. “Combined, these programs have provided more than $519.5 million in 106,621 rent relief payments for more than 76,500 households across Virginia.”The funding source for the new program comes from the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Homeowner’s Assistance Fund. To be eligible, households need to demonstrate a reduction of income after January of 2020.

(HB61)Senator Travis Hackworth (R-38) filed a bill to require the chief of police of a dissolved department to relinquish records to the sheriff of that locality. Seems specific. (SB59)Hackworth has another bill that would move the deadline for political subdivisions to provide information on emergency sheltering capacity to the State Coordinator of Emergency Management from May to August. (SB60)Hackworth also filed legislation to allow judges, law-enforcement officers, attorneys, and judges to carry concealed weapons in areas where they may otherwise be prohibited. (SB61)Distilleries would be allowed to sell products directly to consumers via the Internet if a bill from Senator Frank Ruff (R-15) becomes law.

However, a release that went out this morning now states that Smith will remain closed until a “spring 2022 reopening.”Smith has been plagued with ventilation issues since soon after it opened. According to a 2015 Daily Progress article, the facility closed for several weeks in 2015 for installation of new exhaust systems. The pool closed again in April 2019 for repairs and was slated to be closed in the spring of 2020 for a $1.8 million repair that has not yet been completed. Crow Indoor Pool is open. ARB seeks smaller scale for Crozet self-storage facilityThe winter storm yesterday ended up canceling all three of the government meetings scheduled including the Albemarle Architectural Review Board. That group last met on December 20 when they weighed in on a self-storage facility proposed for the intersection of U.S. 250 and Crozet Avenue. Margaret Maliszewski is a planning manager who works with the ARB. (watch the meeting)“The proposed building is three stories tall with a 30,000 square foot footprint,” Maliszewski said. “The building as shown on the plan measures 260 feet by 120 feet.”Staff is concerned about the size of the building in relation to what’s around it. Maliszewski said the developer submitted a design with architectural treatments intended to break down the design, but continued to have concerns with the preliminary design. The property is zoned for highway commercial, so the use is allowed but must comply with entrance corridor guidelines. Doug Bates, a member of the Downtown Crozet Initiative and the Crozet Community Advisory Committee. During public comment, he said the project is not consistent with a Crozet Master Plan that seeks to build larger structures closer to downtown and now on U.S. 250.“I can’t think of a more important corridor to deal with Crozet and I would urge this Architectural Review Board to consider your broader responsibilities to keep the community coherent,” Bates said. Another member of the public urged the county to deny the whole proposal. “I think we’re giving too much importance to by-right and not enough to what really needs to go there,” said Brenda Plantz. “It’s a Scenic Highway.” However, Virginia law is clear that property owners are entitled to uses laid out in the zoning code as explained by ARB Chair Dade Van Der Werf. “I think I can speak on behalf of the board to say we certainly appreciate and share the appreciation that this is a significant intersection on these entrance corridors and I think our charge on the ARB aligns with the desire for coherence in the order of the county,” van der Werf said. “We are not empowered to affect zoning or use. That’s kind of the responsibility of the Planning and other commissions.”However, ARB members did express concerns such as this one from Frank Stoner.“I took struggle with the scale of this building,” Stoner said. “It’s very close to the intersection. If there was a way to push it back on the site and make it sort of an ancillary use to something more appropriate that was on the corner, I think I could be supportive.” ARB member Fred Missel also wanted to look very closely to see how the entrance corridor guidelines could be applied at this location.“In my opinion, this project is precisely an example of what the guidelines are designed to help us guard against,” Missel said. “I think we have to not only take our guidelines seriously but also ask the applicant to spend some significant amount of time looking through our guidelines, really understanding them, reflecting on them, and addressing them both visually and also narratively  the next time we speak if its in a work session which I think is probably smart.” Missel said the ARB cannot comment on the use but said the scale is incompatible with the county’s guidelines. The ARB voted 4-0 on a resolution stating their lack of support with one member recusing himself. Recommendations including trying to make the building seem more like a two-story building and looking at other buildings along the corridor to find compatibility. Support the program!Special announcement of a continuing promo with Ting!

Trying to Make Sense of Markets That Don't Make Sense

With the Fed set to make a large reduction in its Quantitative Easing program next month, the Fed will crash stocks. Most market participants believe a balance sheet taper and rate hikes are bullish for stocks and will send Treasury yields higher. The truth is, the Fed will crash stocks and Treasury yields will head lower. #economy #stockmarket #business #news #breakingnews #stocks #bonds #money Portfolio Shield™ https://stevenvanmetre.com/portfolio-shield/ Website http://stevenvanmetre.com/ Social Media https://twitter.com/MetreSteven https://www.linkedin.com/in/steven-van-metre-b4a08b182/ https://www.facebook.com/svmfin/ Portfolio Shield™ and Momentum Timer Pro™ are unregistered trademarks of Steven Van Metre Financial.

Hey smarties! We're on a break for the holidays and revisiting some favorite episodes from 2021. We want to say a big thank-you for being part of the “Make Me Smart” family this year — every voicemail, question and donation made a huge difference. None of us is as smart as all of us, and we couldn't do this show without you. There's still time to help Marketplace reach its end-of-year fundraising goal. If you can, please donate here. Thanks, happy holidays and we'll see you in the new year. It's been just over 40 years since newly elected President Ronald Reagan declared, “In this present crisis, government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem.” We're about 39 years and four months away from the legislative manifestation of that idea, the Economic Recovery Tax Act, which codified “Reaganomics,” supply-side economics, trickle-down economics, whatever you want to call it. All these decades later, we're still talking a lot about this policy because Reagan was so good at promoting it. People could understand the metaphor of government spending as a household budget in need of a cutback, said Brown University political economist Mark Blyth. “That rather ignores the fact that I don't get to issue my own currency, there's no such thing as a Kai Ryssdal bond market,” Blyth said. “But because all that stuff accords with common sense, it's an easy sell.” Now we're in a new financial crisis, with plenty of data on the “trickle-up” consequences of trickle-down and a $1.9 trillion pandemic relief bill. Reagan had “Morning in America,” Joe Biden has “Infrastructure Week.” On today's show, we'll talk with Blyth about how Reaganomics was supposed to work, its ripple effects on Democrats and whether the era of “The era of big government is over” is … over. Later in the show, we'll track more big firms getting rid of their offices, wade into crypto just a bit and learn about code breaker Elizebeth Smith Friedman. Plus, a correction from a 2-year-old listener. Here are links to everything we talked about on the show today: “Bidenomics beats Reaganomics and I should know – I saw Clintonomics fail” from previous Marketplace contributor Robert Reich in the Guardian “2020 Was the Year Reaganism Died” by Paul Krugman in The New York Times “Biden is planning for a Great Society 2.0” by James Hohmann in The Washington Post “JPMorgan, Salesforce Join Growing List of Firms Dumping Office Space” from The Wall Street Journal “US 10-year Treasury yield hits highest level since January last year” from Financial Times “PayPal launches crypto checkout service” from Reuters “Visa moves to allow payment settlements using cryptocurrency” also from Reuters “How America's ‘First Female Cryptanalyst' Cracked the Code of Nazi Spies in World War II—and Never Lived to See the Credit” from Time magazine Finally, listen to Molly's interview with Make Me Smart Question answerer Aniyia Williams.
