          Decent Launches Global Media Distribution Platform   
Decent Launch

Free and open communication has long been an essential component of a successful democracy. Unfortunately, money, power and influence over time have stifled today’s media environment adversely impacting both content producers and consumers alike.

In an effort to democratize creative content, DECENT has officially launched its blockchain-based, global media distribution platform. The name is an acronym for Decentralized Network; Encrypted & Secure; Content Distribution System; Elimination of 3rd Parties; New Way of Online Publishing; Timestamped Data Records.

Designed to bring more transparency and fairness to the media industry, DECENT allows artists to seamlessly distribute digital content for immediate payment and without hefty fees. Peer-to-peer in its orientation, consumers decide the merits of a certain piece of content posted through a Yelp-like community rating system. The content, however, cannot be censored or removed.

This blockchain initiative endeavors to disrupt the legacy world of media distribution by allowing artists more freedom and control over the ownership and distribution of their content, all without compromising on security. It represents a potential gamechanger for the massive global media and content distribution industry — one that’s estimated to grow from $1.7 trillion in 2016 to over $2 trillion in 2019.

DECENT was founded in 2016 by two friends, Matej Michalko and Matej Boda, from Slovakia. It sprouted from a shared vision that blockchain technology could fuel a coordinated system of digital content publishing and sharing throughout the world.

Funding for DECENT was fueled by an ICO campaign last summer, which raised more than 5,881 BTC, at that time valued at $4.2 million USD. There were 4,300 ICO participants in total and no other key funding partners.

Michalko recounted the journey leading up to his own personal discovery of blockchain technology and its potential uses for the content distribution space. “I’ve been extensively involved in Bitcoin since 2011, even mining it from my own laptop at the beginning. I quickly realized that the innovative technology behind Bitcoin had the potential to change the modern world.”

When Michalko started to delve further into blockchain technology, he found a seemingly endless list of use cases the new technology could support. “I became determined to use blockchain technology to create something revolutionary that would be beneficial for people on a global scale. A short time later ongoing discussions between myself and our future co-founder Matej Boda quickly led to DECENT being born.”

He says that DECENT Network is a reaction to the issues that the majority of content producers face nowadays in the entertainment and media industry. “There is too much artificial complexity and too many barriers in the industry affecting both the access to market and income of the content owners.”

DECENT’S digital model allows artists to distribute any form of content, including written, music, videos, ebooks and pictures. These distribution channels are free of third-party influence, meaning that artists can also manage their intellectual property rights and set their own pricing.

One of the innovative adaptations that distinguishes DECENT from other blockchain platforms is the network’s reputation management system. This allows content creators who share their digital work on the platform to build a lifetime reputation, based on ratings from those who purchase content on the platform. DECENT Network also allows content creators to instantly receive payment when someone downloads their content, without any middleman interference.

Michalko believes that DECENT can break the trajectory in which a majority of power is concentrated in the hands of a few players controlling the industry. “Artists, filmmakers and writers lose control over their work and depend on the mercy of the ‘big guys.’ We designed DECENT Network to do away with all that and bring more transparency and fairness to the digital content industry.”

DECENT estimates that writers, for example, lose a healthy 30–75 percent chunk of their earnings when publishing with Amazon. Similarly, musicians, through licensing agreements, lose around 30 percent when selling a track on iTunes. Blockchain technology therefore serves as a mechanism that helps writers and musicians keep more money, while connecting with their audiences directly.

Michalko says that artists will be paid for their downloaded content through DECENT’s own cryptocurrency called “DCT,” which will be launched together with DECENT Network. Other payment options, he says, will be available in the future. “Artists will no longer have to wait months before seeing a penny from their work. And at the time of launch, DECENT Network will be a completely free-of-charge service for artists.”

Michalko hopes that by  2020, DECENT Network will have become the number one worldwide media sharing platform. “We hope to bring more transparency and fairness to the digital content industry for both creators and consumers. I hope that with our launch people will realize the advantage of DECENT Network over other content distribution platforms.”

Commence Industrial CRM Profiled by Manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler in Manufacturing & Logistics IT

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/27/2006 -- According to Thomas R. Cutler, Manufacturing Journalist, in a recent issue of Manufacturing and Logistics IT, Industrial CRM is experiencing huge growth. The article may be read in its entirety at http://www.logisticsit.com/absolutenm/templates/article-manufacturing.aspx?articleid=2428&zoneid=2.

Commence offers industrial companies complete "Freedom Of Choice" to select the solutions and platform that best meets the business requirements of manufacturers and distributors. The comprehensive CRM Industrial application suite is available for use on premise or on-demand as a hosted service. Industrial leaders often build departmental CRM solutions with the award winning Commence Industrial CRM Framework. These choices are why so many industrial companies choose Commence as the solution for managing customer relationships. All Commence Industrial solutions support mobile or wireless connectivity and integration to back-office accounting and ERP systems.

According to Larry Caretsky, CEO of Commence Corporation, "CRM for manufacturers must streamline sales processes by ensuring sales opportunities are tracked and closed consistently and efficiently with customizable workflow rules that automate stages in the selling process." As part of the lean manufacturing initiative, effective industrial CRM solutions will reduce errors by creating and modifying accurate quotes for prospects and existing clients using a full-featured product catalog that supports complex pricing levels, units of measure and discounts. The technology must allow quotes to be converted to orders, as well as modifying and saving orders until they are ready to be billed as invoices.

Caretsky suggested that another advantage of sector specific CRM is, "The ability improve demand management with sales pipeline visibility allows manufacturers to implement a sales forecasting process that delivers objective insights on sales activity, rather than subjective guessing."

Decreased client response times are also achieved when there is heightened visibility to manufacturing order status, inventory quantities, and current pricing; this empowers customer service staff with critical customer information.

Aftermarket sales are driving significant industrial CRM technology solutions because manufacturers recognize the value-added profit opportunities available with increased service and aftermarket sales. Only when the minutia of industrial customers' content is detailed in a CRM system can aftermarket sales opportunities be effectively exploited.
Understanding the idiosyncratic nature of manufacturing processes, industrial enterprises, and lean manufacturing principles mandates that CRM technology solutions recognize these unique sector traits to realize optimal benefits.

In an effort to help industrial distributors and manufacturers thrive, Commence Corporation presents Practices That Pay: Leveraging Information to Achieve Industrial Selling Results, a compendium of smart practices from the leading industrial sales and marketing experts and organizations that are growing in today's challenging environment.

          Lean Industrial CRM Data Integration Lean by Commence Corporation   

Lean Industrial CRM Data Integration Lean by Commence Corporation

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/23/2006 -- According to Larry Caretsky, President of Commence Corporation (www.commence.com/mfg./), "Integration is a word many vendors are afraid of, and with good reason if their software can't support it. But industrial distributors and manufacturers need to carefully think about integration before they write it off as a "nice-to-have". Depending on your functional requirements, integration may be a necessity."

There are two main kinds of integration to consider: back-end and contact management. If manufacturers choose to integrate sales and marketing database with back-end accounting, ERP, or manufacturing software, then the ability to provide the sales team with a complete view of the customer, potentially including order history, pricing requests, and ship dates. Integration can also significantly help with quote entry, follow-up, and tracking. By increasing the availability of product and pricing information, important tools are given to an industrial sales force to serve customers while gaining efficiencies. Once a manufacturers has a significant volume of reliable data, it can start to feed the data entered in the sales system to the back-end system to facilitate improved purchasing and manufacturing forecasting.

Caretsky suggests that Lean CRM is has many important variables. "If you choose to integrate contact management, then all relevant contact-related data, including calendar, will be available in software such as Microsoft Outlook and able to synchronize to the sales team's PDAs or Pocket PCs. The main driver behind contact management integration is to make sure users don't have to type the same piece of data more than once, an obvious waste of time, and something that most sales people are unlikely to actually do. "

          Comment on Bike sharing schemes – how to solve the final mile problem by Mark Lenahan   
Very interesting and helpful! A quick observation about one scheme in South America, Rio De Janeiro's Bike Rio. (I'd add a link to the website here if I could find one!). It's a fixed station system with a pricing model very similar to European ones - low cost per hour but it starts to go up a lot if you don't return the bike. Rio is a great city to cycle in, far safer than Dublin for example, with seperated bike lanes around all of the beaches and the lagoon. The only problem is the system is virtually unusable by foreign tourists - little or no English or other languages, you need a Brazilian phone number to register, you either need data roaming (for the app) or a Brazilan phone with you to pick up and drop off. I really like these schemes (Bixi in Montreal is great for visitors), but I'd like to use them more often as a traveller. You get a much better feeling of a city on foot or on a bike than you do from being underground in a metro or being driven from point to point.

          Russia's Rosneft set for global gas tussle with Gazprom   

By Vladimir Soldatkin and Olesya Astakhova

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Rosneft, the world's top listed oil producer, wants to supply gas in parts of Europe where Gazprom is not present - or Moscow risks losing the market to U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG), a Rosneft executive said.

Gazprom, the leading global gas producer, enjoys monopoly rights on gas pipeline exports. It has lost its exclusive rights to ship seaborne LNG overseas to Rosneft and Novatek, Russia's largest non-state gas producer.

Rosneft, headed by Igor Sechin, an ally of President Vladimir Putin, has long been vying for pipeline gas exports as it strives to grow globally. It now wants permission to export to the parts of Europe in which Gazprom does not operate.

The Russian producer has a memorandum with BP, which owns a 19.75 stake in the Russian company, to trade up to 20 billion cubic metres (bcm) of gas annually in Europe.

Rosneft vice president Vlada Rusakova, a former Gazprom executive, said the company wants to conduct "an experiment" in supplying gas to new markets "in coordination" with Gazprom.

"We are not counting on a total lifting of export restrictions. This would be harmful for Gazprom, especially against the background of a difficult financial and economic situation at the company," she said in emailed comments.

She added that as part of the "experiment", Rosneft could supply gas to markets where Gazprom is not present and into which U.S. LNG could be imported. Rusakova did not identify any such European countries.

"Of course, this should be done in close coordination with Gazprom, in order to avoid competition between Russian gas suppliers."

Gazprom targets $32-34 billion in revenues from exporting more than 180 bcm to Europe and Turkey this year. Rosneft produced almost 70 bcm of gas last year, earning 208 billion roubles ($3.5 billion) in revenues from gas sales at home.

NEW MARKETS

Rosneft, like Novatek, is winning some of Gazprom's clients at home thanks to a more flexible gas pricing policy. But unlike Novatek or Gazprom, Rosneft plans to have an LNG plant only in Russia, as it eyes Russia's far east and Asian markets.

The company wants to export gas to China, where Gazprom plans to start shipping gas in 2019-2021 via the Power of Siberia pipeline, currently under construction.

It also wants access to China's domestic gas market and end-users via swap deals.

"There are significant gas resources in Russia's east, while no infrastructure has been built. And that's why we are interested in gaining access to the future Power of Siberia pipeline," Rusakova said.

Rosneft plans to produce 100 bcm of gas per year by 2020 and become the world's third-largest producer of natural gas sometime later, thanks to a number of international projects.

Last year, Rosneft agreed to buy a stake of up to 35 percent in Egypt's Zohr offshore gas field from Italy's Eni. The Russian company also plans to expand in gas projects elsewhere, including Mozambique and Venezuela.

Rusakova said Rosneft and Venezuelan state company PDVSA may consider building an LNG plant in Venezuela.

          LNG price row between India, U.S. crimps Trump's export aims   
NEW DELHI/NEW YORK/LONDON  - India's biggest importer of U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) is trying to re-negotiate prices with the U.S. seller, sources said, undermining plans by U.S. President Donald Trump to export more gas to the fast-growing Asian nation.

At a joint news conference with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the White House this week, Trump said the United States looked forward to exporting more energy, including new major long-term contracts to purchase American natural gas.

The effort is part of Trump's policy of seeking to assert power abroad through a boost in natural gas, coal and petroleum exports. He said on Thursday that the "golden era" of the U.S. energy business was now underway.

But any new LNG agreements with India will depend on how GAIL and Cheniere of the United States deal with a long-term supply contract signed in 2011 for an estimated $22 billion.

India's GAIL has deals to buy 5.8 million tonnes of U.S. LNG per annum for 20 years, mostly with Cheniere, but is now asking to re-negotiate the price. A commissioning cargo was sent last year, but supplies in earnest will only likely start in 2018.

Two sources at state-run GAIL said they were trying to re-negotiate the contract.

"At current U.S. prices, the landed cost of the LNG (in India) is not very attractive," said one of the sources on condition of anonymity, as he was not cleared to speak to media. Neither source gave any details on what price GAIL was seeking.

"We are trying a mix of options on pricing, and re-negotiating is one of them," the source said. "My perception is that the talks with Cheniere in this regard are not very likely to succeed."

Officially, GAIL has declined comment on the row.

Cheniere, currently the only U.S. company exporting LNG, said it was not open to a lower price.

"Our customers expect us to deliver on our commitments, and we expect the same. This is a signed long-term contract that we believe will provide long-term value and we expect the contract to be adhered to," said Eben Burnham-Snyder, a spokesman at Cheniere.

The contract price is calculated on a formula based on U.S. spot prices for natural gas, and currently costs India $8.50 per million British thermal units (mmBtu).

Traders said that Cheniere would struggle to send cargoes at a lower price.

GAIL UNDER PRESSURE

Asian spot LNG prices, which exclude all extra costs like shipping, have fallen by more than 40 percent this year to $5.40 per mmBtu amid ballooning oversupply as production from Australia and the United States rises.

R.K. Garg, head of finance at Petronet LNG , India's biggest gas importer, told Reuters that at current oil prices, long-term gas contracts were being offered at $6-7 per mmBtu.

Mangesh Patankar, head of business development at energy consultancy Galway Group, said that GAIL was trying for lower prices because the company was struggling to sell contracted U.S. LNG on to end-users in India, who are demanding cheaper gas from GAIL themselves.

   "A lot of the (LNG) buyers are doing that right now. With the ramp up in Australia and U.S. volumes, and demand being not that active in the end-user market, a lot of the buyers have had to do that," he said.

Other LNG buyers, including top importer Japan, are also pressing for better terms.

Washington has been using LNG as a diplomatic and political tool. Although sales are a commercial matter, Washington has been laying foundations for contracts with key buyers, including China.

Trump has made LNG exports a central part of his trade policy, aimed at reviving industry and creating jobs. Asian markets account for about 70 percent of global LNG shipments, and India is one of the fastest-growing importers.

Trump will be visiting Poland next week and plans to promote U.S. LNG exports at a meeting in Warsaw with a dozen leaders from central and eastern Europe.

          How Watches-and-diamonds.com Scouts Select Watches   


Watches-and-diamonds.com has a huge selection of over 1,000 new watches from 35 designers. It has certain classic watches that are always available, but much of its inventory also shifts depending on trends and what is available from watchmakers. They have watches at a range of prices, and you can find pieces from the most classic to the most avant-garde. You can see the entire collection of men’s and women’s watches at www.watches-and-diamonds.com. Shlomo Lustig, President of Watches-and-diamonds.com, is in charge of the company’s collection. He travels the world looking at promising new designs and selecting pieces for sale on the website. 

However, he can’t choose all of the pieces himself, since he is often needed at the main Watches-and-diamonds.com office in Birmingham, UK, or its sister office in Dallas, Texas. When he can’t travel personally, Shlomo Lustig relies on trained scouts to make recommendations for which watches Watches-and-diamonds.com should purchase for resale.

How do the Watches-and-diamonds.com scouts select new watches? They start by reading up on the year’s fashion trends, particularly as they relate to jewelry. It is important for scouts to anticipate what Watches-and-diamonds.com customers will be looking for as they shop. Then, they visit watchmakers. They have established relationships with some major brands, but they also look for smaller manufacturers who might have a great product with less exposure. For example, they often visit small watch shops in Switzerland to look for watches that they could help market to an international audience. When scouts find a piece that is appealing in terms of style, they consider value and quality. They only purchase watches that will last for several years, because they know that their customers want a high-quality watch. Watches-and-diamonds.com scouts are also trained in pricing watches, so they know when a watch is priced correctly.

          GLOBAL BLAST-OFF TRADE SETUP / THEGOLDANDOILGUY.COM   

Global Blast-Off Trade Setup
 .
Global Blast-Off Trade Setup


Our analysis of the global markets and metals markets are prompting us to issue a warning that may not shock a number of our followers – but may surprise others.  We use a number of custom indicators, custom indexes and other specialized features to try to keep our valued members aware of moves before they happen at ActiveTradingPartners.com.  You may recall our recent article warning of a VIX spike between June 9th and June 13th in correlation with a US market correction (NASDAQ).  We nailed this and predicted another VIX spike on June 29th, 2017.

Are you ready for what might become the most opportunistic setup we’ve seen in over a decade?  Well, before we get to the guts of our incredible setup, let’s go over some other data to support our predictions – the global markets.

On May 3rd, 2017, we authored an article regarding Global Economic Shifts that were taking place as a result of Capital Migration and renewed risk factors throughout the global markets. 

Our hypothesis was that capital will always attempt to locate and migrate to financial environments where risk is mitigated and returns are sufficient.  We consider this an active and intrinsic role of global capital – the hunt for the ability to thrive and develop success/profits.

Since this research was completed, a number of new and interesting facets have evolved.  Two of the most interesting are the shifts within the Arabic nations with regards to Qatar and the almost total isolation recently enacted on this wealthy nation and the news from Europe that a number of smaller, regional banks are collapsing with broader, tangible relations to the EU banking system.  This type of disruption within a financial environment (think globally) causes capital to migrate rather quickly to more stable locations for self-preservation.

China/Asian markets appear to be developing a level of “moderately healthy financial environment” in terms of global market capital migration.  In the past, I would have warned that Asia/China could become a temporary safe-harbor for capital as it migrates out of riskier environments and I would still support that claim simple because China/Asia are less of a mature market compared to other.  Thus, the likelihood that China/Asia could see dramatic asset revaluation or some type of unexpected market function issues is still near the top of my list.  Yet, we can’t accurately predict when this will happen and until extended signs of weakness cause us to adopt a more concerned stance, we have to understand that capital will move to environments that seem suitable for success.  At this time, we believe China/Asia are viewed as just that – moderately suitable for capital deployment and investment (till things change).

Asia Chart

You will see from our chart that a defined support channel is in place and resistance bands appears to be setting up near the end of June and throughout September 2017.

Asia_Custom_Monthly_F


BRICs Chart

BRICS markets appear to have “rolled over”, as predicted, near resistance bands that indicate pricing levels may be setup for some level of correction.  It is our opinion that an 8~18% correction may be near as capital will likely migrate away from perceived increased risk and towards healthier environments.  This would put a downside target on this chart near $13k~$12.5k.

BRICS_Custom_Monthly_F

Europe Chart

The European markets appear to be at a critical juncture near a classic Fibonacci retracement pattern.  Many people do not understand one of the basic concepts of Fibonacci theory that is; price will always attempt to develop new higher highs or lower lows.  Keeping this in mind, any failure to develop higher highs in the European markets within the next 2~3 months will likely result in perceptions being that these markets are developing greater risk.  Thus, capital may migrate away from the uncertainty and risk towards healthier alternatives.
 
The European markets chart shows clear price channels that originated near July 2016 – the date Theresa May assumed the Prime Minister role.  It is interesting how the perception of an environment of strength, protection, leadership and opportunity can change the way capital migrates from different environments.  In this case, the disruption in Europe with May’s election victory changed the way people saw the future opportunities in Europe.
 
Now, with recent elections, banking issues, further debt issues and uncertainty with leadership, we can only assume that perception will change, again, towards an environment that is more risky and unstable – prompting capital migration away from these markets.

EU_Custom_Monthly_F


US charts

Meanwhile, on another continent…  The US markets appear to be the “Garden of Eden” in terms of capital migration.  It is true that the entire US/Canadian/Mexican conglomerate market is suitable and in perfect financial health, but it is also true that compared to many others, these market present the potential for the best and safest deployment of capital.  The charts show that capital appreciation has been tremendous since the US Presidential Elections and may launch much higher if extended risk exists in other global markets.
 
Again, capital is always searching for a safe and suitable environment for deployment.  Taken in global terms, there are really only two suitable locations for capital and the others are inherently more risky.  These conditions may change over the next few months, but our analysis points to one critical factor that could disrupt many aspects of this global capital environment.  One thing that could be related to a massively disruptive event.


US_Custom_Weekly_F

We are now at the point that you have been waiting for.  The incredibly disruptive and opportunistic setup that could change everything in the global markets (or so we hypothesize).  Before we get to the details, we want to make certain that you understand this type of research if far from 100% guaranteed or set in stone.  We develop our analysis based on a number of massively moving components within the global economy and are predicting price moves that may be weeks of month in advance.  We advise you to consider this a learning experiment in the sense that there is absolutely no way we can state with 100% certainty our research/analysis or conclusions will play out exactly as we suggest.  It is impossible for anyone to know what will or may happen, accurately, in the future.  That is what trading is all about – making an educated guess and protecting your trade.

Well, here it is, folks.  The setup/opportunity that may turn into the biggest move in the markets for the next century. 

METALS.

Think about this for just one minute. Given the knowledge that capital will migrate to sources of safety and investment return while avoiding environments that are risky.  And, given that we’ve made fairly clear points that much of the global is setting up for some levels of disruption, uncertainty and greater risk – leaving only China/Asia and the US as the safe-harbor capital environments.  We’ve also detailed how the China/Asia markets are setting up for disruption with technical resistance levels and exposure to other global environments. 

We’ve highlighted that Europe may enter a period of disruption and uncertainty with recent elections, debt, banking issues and more and illustrated that BRICs markets are rolling over as an early warning that emerging markets might contract as global capital migrates towards safer environments.  This is not doom and gloom stuff, this is just what happens when markets are disrupted.
 
Now, look at the setup in these custom metals index charts.  A clear Flag formation has setup near historical lows that is nearing the Pinnacle.  My analysis of this pattern shows that we are setup for one more lower price rotation before the rally begins.  One more attempt at buying near ultimate lows before we could see a massive, explosive rally capable of at least a 50%+ run.  Long term, this run could be much bigger..  much, much bigger.  Fibonacci theory shows the potential for 125% or 225% gains are easily posible.

Oddly enough, our research shows that this lower wave of metals prices should complete near or before June 29th.  Remember that date from the beginning of this article?  That’s right, this is the date that we predict would initiate a volatility spike (VIX Spike).  Just how big will this VIX spike be?  If our analysis is correct, the real VIX/volatility expansion won’t begin to happen till near the end of August or near the middle of September, 2017.
 
Our analysis shows that the Metals will begin to make a move near the end of June or early July 2017.  Our analysis also shows that the US and global markets will begin to see increased volatility near Aug/Sept 2017.  We also believe that any move in Metals will likely be the result of extended risk factors globally.

 

          O, O, O,IT´S MAGIC / SEEKING ALPHA   

O, O, O, It's Magic

by: Brad Thomas
 

- All triple-net REITs grow earnings by utilizing spread investing.

- The higher the multiple, the lower the costs of capital, and that translates into BIGGER MARGINS.

- The low cost of capital (high equity multiple) is the most important competitive advantage in the net lease industry.

 
This article is one in a sequence of articles that I refer to as “If I Had To Own Just One REIT” series. As you may recall, I recently wrote on the Healthcare REIT sector and I selected Ventas, Inc. (VTR) as my top pick. I summed up my BUY recommendation as follows:
VTR is my favorite Healthcare REIT and one of the best managed REITs overall. While I don't consider the shares anywhere near bargain-pricing levels, I consider the stock soundly valued and worthy of an entry position. For a deep value investor, I would wait on a pullback, but I have no problem recommending shares at the current price point.
I also wrote on the Shopping Center REIT sector and I explained that “after surveying the list of vetted retail REITs and considering which of the companies are worthy of ownership, I find Retail Opportunity Investments Corp. (ROIC) one of the best REITs to own.”
 
Given the more recent news and powerfully disruptive force in the retail sector – Amazon (AMZN), it’s critical that investors focus on QUALITY. As I explained in a recent Forbes article,
The best quality real estate with the highest sales productivity should thrive as successful retailers want to drive sales and inventory turnover..., Amazon is recognizing that to build a successful mousetrap, the blueprint must include REAL ESTATE.
In other words, it’s now more critical than ever to own Retail REITs that have the highest quality assets. There is no reason to be cute, hoping to capture outsized returns by investing a REIT like Spirit Realty (SRC) that leases to Shopko and formerly invested in a struggling grocer, Hagen. I summarized my thoughts in a recent article,
The cream always rises to the top, and today REIT investors have an opportunity to pick up shares in a stalwart REIT that has a superior low cost of capital advantage. It’s critical to always examine the underlying revenue generators of a REIT and remember that “quality is not free.
Now it’s time to continue the “If I Had To Own Just One REIT” series and today I’m writing on the Net Lease REIT sector. I’m sure you already know the company but in case you don’t here’s a clue…. O, O, O, It’s Magic.
 
 
The Basic Net Lease REIT Overview
 
Before I start on the discussion of Realty Income (O), let’s begin with a general overview of the Net Lease REIT sector. Net Lease REITs are different from Shopping Center REITs because their lease structure and growth drivers support a predictable revenue stream relative to other forms of retail real estate. This snapshot below compares Realty Income (and Net Lease REITs) with Shopping Center/Mall REITs:
 
 
 
 
One of the most important differentiators for Net Lease REITs is that they drive growth through acquisitions. When is the last time you saw a Mall REIT acquire a Mall? Net Lease REITs like Realty Income have a large pool to fish in – the sector is highly fragmented and there are opportunities to invest in practically every state in the U.S. (Realty Income owns properties in 49 states).
 
 
 
Here is a snapshot comparing Realty Income’s market capitalization with the Net Lease REIT peers:
 
 
 
Over the years, Realty Income has evolved into a massive Net Lease REIT with 4,980 properties located in 49 states and Puerto Rico. As you can see below, the company has a highly diversified portfolio spanning 49 states (not in HI):
 
 
 
 
It’s hard to fathom how much Realty Income has grown over the years, from one Taco Bell site to over 4,900 properties. The company now has incredible scale, well diversified by tenant, industry, geography, and to a certain extent, property type.
 
No tenant represents more than 6.8% of revenue as Realty Income has 250 commercial tenants, 45% are investment-grade rated (including 9 of the top 20 tenants):
 
 
 
As you can see, Whole Foods is not on the list of Top 20 tenants. During the first quarter, Realty Income added Kroger (NYSE:KR) to its top 20 tenants, representing 1.2% of annualized rental revenue. But more importantly, the top 15 tenants represent higher quality credit, less cyclical industries and greater diversification vs. 2009:
 
 
 
No industry represents more than 11.1% of rent and the company has considerable exposure to defensive industries: Top 10 industries represent strong diversification, significant exposure to non-discretionary, low price point, service-oriented industries:
 
 
Realty Income’s roots are in retail with growing exposure to mission-critical industrial properties:
 
 
 
Realty Income’s management team is highly experienced at sourcing deals and when the company invests in retail it seeks strong unit-level cash flow coverage (specific to each industry). The company seeks tenants with service, non-discretionary and/or low price point components to their business with favorable sales and demographic trends.
 
Keep in mind, there have been 13 retail bankruptcies in 2017 and 12 of them were related to apparel, electronics, and general merchandise. Realty Income has little exposure to these categories: 5 apparel BKs and O has 1.8% of ABR in apparel, 3 sporting goods BKs and O has 1.3% of ABR in sporting goods, and O has .30% exposure in electronics, 1.7% in general merchandise, and just .65% exposure in shoes (i.e. Payless BK).
 
Also, Realty Income has 3.67% exposure (based on ABR) to the grocery sector. The company has Wal-Mart and Kroger as Top 10 tenants. As I said earlier, it’s critical to invest in quality retail and that means avoid REITs that have exposure to weaker chains like Shopko (i.e. SRC) and Bi-Lo (i.e. WHLR).

What about Rite Aid (RAD)?
 
Of all of Realty Income’s tenants, Rite Aid is, in my opinion, the biggest watch list candidate. There is doubt regarding the Walgreen merger and RAD is highly leveraged (rated B by S&P). Realty Income has 69 RAD stores but I don’t consider this dire news given the fact that Realty Income has cherry-picked the real estate and the pharmacy sector is growing.
 
Who knows, maybe the RAD leases become Amazon leases… I’ll save that article for another day…
Realty Income remains comfortable with the momentum in the drugstore industry and continues to view the exposure favorably given the industry’s attractive demographic tailwinds, non-discretionary nature and continued growth from in-store pharmacy pickup.
 
Additionally, Walgreens and CVS (the top two drugstore tenants) have generated 15 consecutive quarters of positive same-store pharmacy sales growth.
 
Most importantly, over 90% of Realty Income’s retail portfolio has service, non-discretionary and/or low price point components. The Non-Retail-focused investments are Fortune 1000, primarily investment-grade rated companies.
 
 
 
The Magic Starts Right Here
 
All triple-net REITs grow earnings by utilizing spread investing; this simple formula is described as follows:
 
Cap Rate - Cost of Capital = Spread
 
By using this example, assume a triple-net REIT acquires standalone buildings at a 7% cap rate, and then, after subtracting the cost of capital (~5%), arrives at a spread (that's the profit margin) of ~2% (or 200 bps).
 
Over the years, I have been reading many articles on Seeking Alpha and other investing websites, and I'm amazed that most analysts miss the "most important thing" when it comes to net lease investing:
 
The Low Cost of Capital Advantage.
Let's consider the equity details related to spread investing.
 
To arrive at the earnings yield, one must divide the P/FFO ratio into 100. For example, a P/FFO of 21x divided by 100 is a 4.7% earnings yield. Since assuming Wall Street charges around 6.5% for equity, the earnings yield after issuance costs is .935 (100% - 6.5% = 93.5%).
 
So, the Nominal Cost of Equity is arrived at by dividing the 4.7% earnings yield by .935, or 5%.
 
With a 7% cap rate (on a purchase), the 5% NCE is equal to 2.0%. Thus, on a $100 million investment, there is $2 million in new profits for all shareholders. The same thing at 25x P/FFO equals a 4.27% NCE that translates into around $2.73 million (in profits) on a $100 million acquisition.
 
So, very simply, the higher the multiple, the lower the costs of capital, and that translates into BIGGER MARGINS.
 
AFFO yield = Annualized 2017 estimated AFFO ($3.06) divided by $56.67 stock price = 5.39%
 
Estimated cost of 10-year debt = 3.60%
 
Nominal Cost of Free Cash Flow = 0%
 
66% equity = 5.39% * (0.66) = 3.56%
 
34% debt = 3.60% * (.33) = 1.22%
 
WACC = 3.56% +1.22% = 4.78%
 
(In reality, it's actually lower than that, because O uses free cash flow instead of equity. Cash has a 0% nominal cost.)
 
Realty Income’s investment spreads relative to its weighted average cost of capital remained healthy in the first quarter, averaging 170 bps, which were well above the historical averages. Realty Income defined investment spreads as initial cash yield less the nominal first year weighted average cost of capital.
 
As illustrated below, the low cost of capital (high equity multiple) is the most important competitive advantage in the net lease industry:
 
 
Low cost of capital allows Realty Income to acquire the highest quality assets and leases in the net lease industry:
 
Realty Income avoids lease structures with above-market rents, which can often inflate initial cap rates:
 
 
Assuming identical real estate portfolio, consider two different lease structure scenarios...
 
 
Realty Income’s cost of capital advantage drives ability to source, fund, close on accretive M&A deals, like the ARCT transaction that closed in 2013:
 
 
Large, diversified portfolio offers capacity to absorb co-mingled portfolio opportunities, like the Inland portfolio that closed in 2014:
 
 
 
Realty Income’s property diversification, cost of capital, and willingness to acquire $250mm+ transactions with diverse property types provides unique growth opportunities in addition to traditional single-asset or retail sale-leaseback pipeline.
 
The Fortress Balance Sheet
 
In the first quarter, Realty Income issued approximately $800 million in common equity at an average price to investors of approximately $62 per share (trading at $53.76 now).
 
Realty Income has the highest credit rating in the net lease sector, the company issued $700 million in fixed rate unsecured debt with a weighted average term of 18.3 years and a yield of 4.1%.
 
The company’s credit spreads remain among the lowest in the REIT industry and leverage continues to decline with net debt to total market cap of approximately 26% and debt to EBITDA of approximately 5.5x. Realty Income currently has approximately $1.5 billion available on its $2 billion line of credit. This provides ample liquidity and flexibility as the company continues to grow.
 
 
 
The company is rated BBB+ by all three major rating agencies (Moody's, S&P, and Fitch), and is likely to become an A- rated REIT soon. Key metrics include: 93% fixed-rate debt, weighted average rate of 4.15% on debt, staggered maturities (8.1 year on average), and ample liquidity ($1.68 available on revolver (L+90bps) with $120 million (annually) of free cash flow.
 
 
O, O, O, It’s Magic
 
What company would copyright the name, “the monthly dividend company” if they did not intend to generate reliable monthly dividends?
 
 
As you can see, Realty Income has had Zero dividend cuts in 22 years as a public company:
 
 
 
The “Magic” of Rising Dividends: Yield on Cost, Dividend Payback long term, yield-oriented investors have been rewarded with consistent income. There are potential benefits to investing long term in a company that regularly increases its dividend. The longer you hold your shares, the higher the yield you will receive on your original investment, assuming dividends increase over time. Additionally, the compounding of reinvested dividends could generate increased investment returns over time.
 
 
Investors who have elected to reinvest their dividends have enjoyed the following returns over time (as of 3/31/2017):
 
Buy, Sell, or Hold?
 
Keep in mind, Realty Income’s share price (of $72.00) is down considerably over the last 11 months.
 
The dividend yield has compressed by 230 bps, representing a cushion for investors (Note: I had a “Trim” on shares at $72.00).
 
 
Let’s examine Realty Income’s dividend yield, compared with the peers:
 
 
Now let’s examine the AFFO Payout Ratio:
 
 
 
Realty Income's Payout Ratio is higher than most peers, but the company does not have considerable office exposure and the quality of the income stream justifies the low 80% ratio. Now let’s examine the P/FFO multiple:
 
 
 
As you see, Realty Income trades at the highest P/FFO multiple in the Net Lease REIT sector, but that does not mean shares are expensive. I would argue that shares are now “soundly” valued and that the premium valuation (relative to the peers) is warranted based on management’s skillful strategy for managing risk. Obviously, I would encourage investors to buy Realty Income if the price drops, but I consider fundamentals sound and I’m maintaining my BUY recommendation.
 
 
Although the Amazon/Whole Foods deal was a surprise last week, it should be no surprise that Realty Income has been able to successfully manage risk for more than two decades. The fact that Amazon is betting on brick and mortar serves to validate the argument that real estate is an essential asset class for delivering goods and Realty Income remains in an enviable position to be the dominant Net Lease consolidator.
 
In conclusion, if I had to buy just one Net Lease REIT, it would be Realty Income... O, O, O, it's magic!

          ARGENTINA´S 100-YEAR BOND CANNOT DEFY EM PLAYBOOK FOREVER / THE FINANCIAL TIMES   

Argentina’s 100-year bond cannot defy EM playbook forever

If the Fed is proved right on growth and inflation, then EM assets are likely to suffer

by: Jonathan Wheatley



Gauchos: saddle up. Argentina, one of the world’s most notorious serial defaulters, came to market on Monday with a 100-year sovereign bond, and investors snapped it up with all the macho bravado of the legendary horsemen of the pampas.

Really? A dollar-denominated bond that pays back 100 years from now, from a junk-rated country that has barely managed to stay solvent for more than half that time in its entire history as a creditor?

While there is certainly an investment case for taking part, several analysts warn that this issue is a classic sign of a market getting ahead of itself.

The point, though, is not the 100 years. The complexities of bond maths mean that, once maturities go beyond 30 years, the investment case barely changes. Barring default, with a yield of nearly 8 per cent, the bond will repay investors in full in about 12 years, all else (such as inflation) being equal — and that’s leaving aside its resale value. Many investors will have much shorter horizons.
In a world starved of yield, the 7.91 per cent on offer proved to be quite a pull and the bond attracted orders of $9.75bn for the $2.75bn issued. “People are looking out over the next 12 to 24 months and see a pretty positive outlook [for Argentina],” says David Robbins, head of emerging markets at TCW in New York. “Duration in high yield is something they are more comfortable with.” Argentina, he notes, is in effect selling equity in its economic recovery.

With so much else priced to perfection on global markets, this may seem to go with the territory. But others warn that we have been here before.

Sérgio Trigo Paz, head of emerging market fixed income portfolio management at BlackRock, says the rationale and the pricing are all good. But, he adds: “When you put it into perspective, it gives you a sense of déjà vu.”

Argentina’s is not the only noteworthy sale this week. Russia reportedly attracted demand of more than $6bn for 10-year and 30-year eurobonds expected to be priced later on Tuesday at yields of about 4.25 per cent and 5.25 per cent respectively.

This is happening just as the US Federal Reserve has embarked on “quantitative tightening”, raising interest rates last week for the second time this year and preparing markets for an announcement on how it will begin shrinking its supersized balance sheet later in the year.

It is not hard to see parallels between today and 2013, when the Fed announced the approaching end of quantitative easing just as investors were piling with enthusiasm into a series of high-profile eurobond issues by African governments. Some of those went badly wrong as investors fled emerging markets in the subsequent “taper tantrum”.

Investors may feel Argentina is less vulnerable this year to the dangers of “original sin” — issuing debt in dollars that must be serviced from revenues in your own, potentially weakening currency.

Last year’s dollar strength has faded and the peso has weakened against it by only about 1.5 per cent this year.

While a repeat of the taper tantrum is not expected, Mr Trigo Paz is among those warning that we are nevertheless at an inflection point.

He sees two scenarios. In one, the Fed is right about inflation and rates will continue to rise.

This would turn the Argentine bond into “a bad experience”. In the other, markets are right, US inflation and payrolls will disappoint and we will be back in a low rate environment, which will be good for the bonds — until deflation rears its head again, hurting the Argentine economy and its ability to pay.

In the meantime, he says, there is a “Goldilocks” middle ground in which investors can suck up an 8 per cent coupon. Beyond that: “It doesn’t look good either way — which is why you get an inflection point.”

Jim Barrineau, co-head of EM debt at Schroders, agrees. “Issuance like this will be the most volatile when the market cracks,” he says. “You do well until you don’t.”

At bottom, the question is whether the strong flows into EM assets this year, more than $35bn into EM bond funds alone, will continue to cushion investors from upsets down the road. It may be that the sheer quantity of money in search of yield will overpower events.

“You’re getting a ton of inflows, including passive inflows, compression of yields and compression of default risk,” says Mr Barrineau. “And people need to put money to work.”

However, he added: “History shows in EM that this type of environment doesn’t last for ever.

“This is the type of thing that when the tide turns is just poised to underperform. We’d rather pass on issues that appear to be the product of a frothy market.”

          How To Sell your Aprons on Etsy, a fun FAQ and How-to Guide E-book by dottiesdiner   

7.00 USD

This E book/PDF tutorial is a fun little guide that I wrote up for anyone wanting to sell their handmade aprons on Etsy.

Ever since I started selling my pattern and tutorial for my best-selling Diner aprons, I have been buried in emails and convos from my customers with questions on how to make the aprons and sell them.

*** I will say first of all I am not an expert in selling aprons! You can plainly see that while I have enjoyed a few years of pretty good sales on Etsy, this is by no means my full time job or source of income. There are some other apron shops on Etsy who far outsell me, and have success far beyond what I could imagine. However, I have learned the hard way what NOT to do, and I am just sharing some of those tips with you.

I have interviewed some of the best apron shops on Etsy for even more great tips, and those wonderful sellers have been more than generous with some very helpful and amusing anecdotes**.
❤️

**Which apron shops have I interviewed? Here is the wonderful list:

Apron selling can be very lucrative on Etsy if done right. You have to be willing to work your ass off, sewing around the clock, trying to keep up during the busy seasons, and doing the things that aren't as much fun; such as shipping, and the dreaded computer stuff. But, if you want to follow the FAQ in the E book, you can totally rock the Etsy apron world for yourself!

•The tutorial is a digital download PDF that you can open and view immediately upon purchase.

Mylan’s EpiPen Pricing Crossed Ethical Boundaries: Ass the CEO of the drug maker that sells the EpiPen allergy-reaction injector defended the company’s six-fold price increases before Congress last week, it’s appalling to see that Heather Bresch took no fault. The company’s price hikes on a life-saving drug is clearly unethical if we take a closer look. The fraud trial for Martin Shkreli, the founder of Founder of Turing Pharmaceuticals, started Monday.

          Comment on A letter to Jeremy by John   
About time people were reminded of this exchange when Hammond was transport sec. Q553 Julie Hilling: One of the criticisms that people are making is that this is just going to be a rich person’s toy and people of low or moderate means will never be able to travel on this. Can you reassure people that it is going to be a railway for everybody and what will happen about regulating fare prices, etc.? Mr Hammond: Uncomfortable fact perhaps No. 1 is that the railway is already relatively a rich man’s toy-the whole railway. People who use the railway, on average, have significantly higher incomes than the population as a whole. That is a simple fact. The assumptions underlying the pattern of use of HS2 assume similar pricing to the West Coast Main Line, which, as I have said before, ranges from eyewateringly expensive to really quite reasonable if you dig around and use the advance purchase ticket options that are available. Therefore, the assumption is that the socioeconomic mix of passengers will be broadly similar to those currently using the West Coast Main Line. There is another point here which I think we have to be absolutely clear about. If you are working in a factory in Manchester you might never get on HS2, but you will certainly be benefiting from it if the salesman and sales director of your company is routinely hopping on it to go and meet customers, to jet around the world from Heathrow in a way that brings in orders that keep you employed. So the benefits of greater connectivity, the benefits of bringing businesses closer to their markets, the benefits from released freight capacity and moving goods efficiently around the country, do not only accrue to the people who will actually use the railway. They accrue to some people who will never even get on the railway. They certainly accrue to people who will use services on the West Coast and East Coast Main Lines that would not have been able to be provided if we had not been able to move the long distance city to city traffic on to a high speed railway. It is a complicated model and the ripple effects will spread across the whole of the economy in ways that it would be foolish to even try and pretend we can wholly predict and quantify at this stage.

          Unleashing the Power of Google Apps   
Google Apps is one the latest challenges to Microsoft's dominance of productivity software on the desktop. A clear example of cloud computing, as all data created is stored on the Internet, Google apps includes applications for communications, including Gmail for electronic mail, Gtalk for instant messaging and Google calendar for organizing individuals schedules as well as sharing events, meetings and calendars with others; Google Docs, which can be used for creating documents, spreadsheets and presentations; The Start Page which is a repository for users to preview their electronic mail, calendars and other content and Google Sites which maintains related documents and other information in place are part of the series of applications for collaboration and publishing. Google Apps is available in Standard, Premier and Education Editions, the first and last being free and the Premier Edition costing $50 per head per user per year.

According to Google, 500,000 businesses have signed up to use Google Apps, although the breakdown between paid and free subscriptions is unavailable. Many organizations are apparently impressed by the lower costs compared to a traditional desktop application, that include purchase of the software itself, reduced support and storage costs as well as claims of faster learning curves.

In addition, evidence is rising that that Google may be shaking up the software productivity market sooner than had been anticipated. Gartner's research has revealed many top corporations using Google Apps, with at least 6% of large enterprise information technology personnel using a Google web-based application on a daily basis. Google's share of the productivity market is becoming quickly pervasive.

However, in general, Google Apps are generally not as powerful in terms of capabilities when compared to Microsoft's Office Suite. However, whereas Microsoft's products are installed on desktops, Google's applications facilitate mobile collaboration, given their accessibility from the Internet at any time and any place. This capability for mobile users is very much ahead of Microsoft's plans for the deployment of its applications over the web. Yet, the heart of the controversy lies in the number of paid subscriptions to the service, which Google is hesitant to reveal, making it reliant on its income from these applications from advertising on the free edition of Gmail.

The implications for Microsoft and the industry are somewhat apparent. Microsoft will most likely need to adjust the pricing of its Office Suite in order to acknowledge the presence of Google Apps in the marketplace. In addition, users of office productivity have much to gain with this competition. Both suites will continue to add features and improvements in order to gain customers over each other.

Related to the applications arena, Google is now trying to be the premier search engine for image searching. Google has developed an image-recognition technology, called Visual Rank, which reduces the number of irrelevant images returned in a search by 83%. The implications for better search relevancy mean faster clicking through web pages which means increased revenue for Google. Other start-ups are making attempts in this arena, yet do not have the ability to make overall breakthroughs that can improve upon Google's technology. Their technologies may tackle image searches specific to an industry rather than compete against Google's which is geared for the computer industry in general. The release of this new capability is yet to be disclosed.

          Greenback Stabilizes    

The US dollar has been battered this week amid a shift in sentiment seen in how the market responded to comments mostly emanating from the ECB's annual conference.  It is not reallyclear that Draghi or Carney gave new policy indications.  

The ECB President has recognized the improved growth prospects, but until inflation is on a sustainable and durable path toward, a heavy dose of monetary accommodation is still needed.  The Bank of England Governor Carney indicated a week ago that it was not the time to raises the rate.  He has not changed his mind.  He identified a couple of factors he will be looking at to see if removing more accommodation is warranted (the BOE announced an increase in the cash buffer required of banks).  

In recent days, the Fed's leadership have added to their argument for a continued gradual increase in rates by noting rich asset prices and easier financial conditions when the Fed desires less accommodative conditions. This is a reminder that contrary to the traditional understanding of the Fed's dual mandate, it really has three goals: Pricestability, full employment, and least we forget, financial stability.  

The market is tired.  After rising mostly 15-20 bp this week, 10-year yields in Europe are mostly a little lower.  The US 10-year yield is steady.  Yesterday's jump in Europe and the US forced Asia-Pacific countries to play catch-up a bit.  Australian and New Zealand benchmark 10-year yields jumped nine bp.  Japan's 10-year yield rose two basis points, but the yield rose to three-month highs, just inside the BOJ 10 bp band on either side of zero.  

The US dollar is mixed.  The three worst performing majors for the week, the yen, the New Zealand dollar and Norwegian krona are the three strongest currencies on the day.  The euro could not get much above the $1.1440 area seen the NY afternoon yesterday.  Options struck at $1.1360 (~810 mln euros), and $1.1450 (~700 mln euros) may mark the range.  It terms of sentiment; it is striking that despite the slightly higher than expected preliminary June inflation, the euro could not make more headway.  Thisalso seems to reflect a stretched or maybe just a cautious market.  

Headline eurozone inflation eased to 1.3% from 1.4% in May.  Before yesterday's German report, a decline to 1.2% was expected.  The core rate rose more than expected to stand at 1.1%, up from 0.9% in May.   Recall that core rate bottomed at 0.6% in early 2015, and at 0.7% as recently as March.   The threat of deflation has been averted.   

In contrast, Japan's May CPI was little changed.  The 0.4% headline pace was unchanged, while the core rate, which excludes fresh food, ticked up to 0.4% from 0.3%.  Excluding food and energy, the year-over-year rate was unchanged at zero.  Separately, Japan reported that for the 15th month, household spending on a year-over-year basis contracted.  The 0.1%  contraction is the smallest in the run, suggest consumption is stabilizing.  

Separately, the unemployment rate unexpectedly rose to 3.1% from 2.8%, even as employment rose to its higher since 2007 and the job-to-applicant ratio rose (1.49 from 1.48).  The number of unemployed unexpectedly rose in German as well.   While unemployment claims were unchanged at 5.7%, Germany reported that unemployment increased by 7k instead of fall by 10k as the market expected. 

After reaching almost JPY113 yesterday, the dollar has pulled back against the yen, as the Japanese currency benefits from short-covering on some of the crosses today.   It appears to be finding support around JPY111.70-JPY111.80.      There is a $382 mln option struck at JPY112.00 that rolls off today.  

The resilience of the Chinese economy is one of the notable developments in the H1 17.  It appears to be finishing the period on a positive note.  The official manufacturing PMI rose to 51.7 from 51.2, defying expectations for a decline.  The non-manufacturing PMI increased to 54.9 from 54.5.  New export orders rose to 52.0, the highest since April 2012, and more broadly, new orders rose to 53.1 from 52.3.  Price components rose.   

The yuan had fallen against the dollar in all but one session from June 12 through June 26.  However, in a squeeze in what may have been spurred by the PBOC, the yuan has now risen for four consecutive sessions.  It has risen 0.8% this week, which appears to be its biggest weekly advance since March 2015.  

Sterling extended this week's survey to $1.3030 in Asia before pulling back, perhaps encouraged by a soft GfK consumer confidence (lowest since the referendum) and the lack of an upward revision to Q1 GDP (remained unchanged at 0.2%).  The $1.3055 area corresponds to a retracement objective of the decline since the referendum.  A move above it would encourage talk of $1.34-$1.35.

Meanwhile, the Labour Party is unable to enjoy its strong showing in the recent election.   More than four dozen Labour MPs voted with the Tories on the Queen Speech and will lose the whip.  Some were leaders and will have to be replaced.  What many observers do not seem to realize is that Labour's manifesto (political platform) and the Tory's was not very different on exit from the EU.  However, there are many remains (in both parties) who do not want to lose access to the single market, which is arguably the litmus test for a hard Brexit. 

The US reports personal income and consumption data that will shape forecasts for Q2 GDP.  The core PCE deflator is expected to confirm the general movement in the core CPI and ease for the fourth consecutive month.  Chicago PMI and Univ of Michigan consumer confidence reports are not typically market movers.  Canada reports April GDP, and perhaps, more importantly, the Bank of Canada's survey of senior loan officers may solidify expectations for a rate hike at the next meeting (July 12).  Indicative pricing in the OIS market implies almost a 70% chance of a hike then.

Our family used this attorney for some general practice issues. I found the attitude of the office somewhat lacking. Although the overall pricing structure was in the range of other attorneys, I didn't feel as if our business was appreciated. In addition, we were charged for an initial consultation that we received free from other attorneys. We ended up taking our business to another practice.

          WINNING THE WoT:   
OPEC, Oil Prices and Disruptive Innovation : Cost-cutting advances in shale are weakening the cartel's grasp of energy market dynamics (Mohamed A. El-Erian, 6/29/17, Bloomberg)

Until this quarter, the revised approach was largely successful in stabilizing prices in a range that both producers and consumers could live with. But, below the surface, its durability was slowly being eroded by three factors: signs that exempt OPEC producers may move the production needle more than initially expected; indications of non-adherence to the ceilings by non-OPEC producers; and, most importantly, by the increasing ability of non-traditional suppliers to operate at lower prices given both ample market financing and cost-cutting innovation.

This third factor puts OPEC in a particularly tricky situation, as illustrated by the literature on disruptive innovation. Pioneered by Harvard Business School's Clayton Christensen, it shows how technological advances can empower new entrants to take market share from established providers, and to do so at declining prices. New value chains are created, either in a new parallel market or, as illustrated by what Southwest Airlines did to the major airlines in the U.S. a few decades ago, in an existing market.

In the case of shale, the disruptive innovations started out with high unit production costs. As such, the producers were initially just an irritant to established suppliers, including OPEC. But, with time, rapid evolution and adaptation allowed them to capture a growing market share, while also redefining the pricing dynamics for the industry as a whole. If this disruption process proceeds further, it will force established suppliers to seek more fundamental adaptations or risk a greater secular decline that is increasingly hard to reverse.

At first, the non-traditional energy supplies were expensive, small and relatively localized. But their impact has been changing, especially when powered by cost-cutting innovations, allowing them to climb the value-added chain. Most recently, they have surprised many by being able to increase output at the new $45 to $55 per barrel price that OPEC helped establish and maintain.

Unlike companies facing such disruption (again think established firms versus new entrants), OPEC members have fewer cost-cutting strategies available to them. They can't merge and consolidate as some disrupted companies have been forced to, and their existing cost structures are relatively entrenched. Their main strategic alternatives boil down to either going all out to undermine the disruptor -- implying oil prices probably around $20 to $30 for a while -- or they manage a gradual secular reduction in revenues due to eroding market share that proves very hard to regain.

In terms of the market, these dynamics suggest the establishment of a series of price ranges around a declining trend.

          What Your Prices Say About Your Small Business   

Ebong Eka Headshot.pngAs a small business, it's very important to charge what you are worth. Yes, it’s easier said than done but I want to share what your prices say about you, your expertise and your business.

 

A small business owner is challenged by charging what you are worth, having a healthy enough profit margin and collecting on sales. In a previous post I discussed the importance of cash management. Cash management includes collecting from your accounts receivables, or from the bills that your clients owe you for services that you've already provided.  Higher prices and a larger profit margin allows for more growth for your business.

 

One of the many things your potential customer thinks about when considering doing business with you is, "Will I receive value greater than the price that I'm going to pay?" There are two reasons people spend money:

 

  1. To get a desired result
  2. To solve an important problem

 

How well you solve that problem, or how much they want that desired result will dictate the price that they are willing to pay.

 

Some clients have said to me, "…but Ebong, if I'm the lowest price, maybe they'll come and buy from me, and then I can eventually charge them more." This never happens and never works. I'll give you a recent example.

Earlier this year, a personal finance app company announced they were going to start charging $3 a month for their app that was initially free. The app helps users save money and make better financial budgeting decisions.  The level of negative complaints from consumers in response were astronomical. People were more upset about paying $3 a month, or $36 a year, for a tool that helped them save thousands of dollars every year.

 

 

The company believed if they charged for their app, their customers would see the value and pay. But no one wants to be surprised. The customers’ expectation is that it would be free, so they expected it to be free. When you change that expectation, people get angry.

 

Now let's apply this to your business.

 

Your customers have a lot of questions when you have lower prices than your competitors:

 

  • Why is this person’s price so cheap in relation to the next competitor?
  • Is this a new business?
  • Do they have the requisite expertise necessary to do what I need to have done?

 

74127740_s.jpgCustomers don’t want to feel they are making a buying mistakes – so they’ll go with the higher price

because it’s a safe bet.

 

Here’s another example:

 

If I had a luxury car for sale for $25,000 and the Kelly Blue Book stated the same car should be worth about $40,000, you would think something is wrong.

 

RELATED ARTICLE: THE 4 CASH FLOW MANAGEMENT MISTAKES THAT FAIL SMALL BUSINESSES

 

Is there an engine in it? Does it have brakes? Does it have wheels? What am I missing? Is it stolen?

 

You know why? Mainly because it's not congruent to what I expect for the value I'm trying to receive.  The same thing is happening to your business.

 

Here's a simple tip that you can use to check pricing. Research your nearest competitor’s prices. Match the price that they charge, and then provide more value. And value doesn't have to be in the form or a discount. Value can be in the form of additional services that doesn't cost more.

If you're a graphic designer and you provide design services to create a logo, maybe you could add additional revisions to the logo as a bonus. In reality, you may charge several hundred dollars extra for that, but say, "Look, for this particular package, I'll give you three revisions for free. If you want unlimited revisions, it's going to be double the price."

 

The bigger goal is being able to provide something that people want and value. Customers spend money for a desired result or to solve a problem. It’s almost never because of price. The successful competitors in your industry are charging more than you are because they understand this principle.

          California’s Cap-and-Trade Program Just Won a Major Legal Challenge   

California’s four-year-old cap-and-trade program, which sets a cap on greenhouse gas emissions and incentivizes the state’s biggest polluters to lower emissions, has won a substantial legal battle.

On Wednesday afternoon, the state’s Supreme Court rejected an appeal of a lower court’s ruling over a legal challenge from a group of businesses initiated four years ago. Back then the Chamber of Commerce sued, alleging that the state is imposing an illegal tax on businesses through the cap-and-trade program.

In April, the 3rd District Court of Appeals ruled in favor of state officials. Now the California Supreme Court has essentially ended the legal challenge for good, a decision that has likely pleased Governor Jerry Brown and the Air Resources Board, which manages the cap-and-trade program.

Over the years, the lawsuit added uncertainty and controversy to the state’s program. The state’s auctions, which sell cap-and-trade allowances to companies, have fluctuated wildly, partly due to such uncertainty, sometimes bringing in major revenue and sometimes bringing in very little money. A variety of state clean energy programs, including high speed rail, rely on revenue from the cap-and-trade program.

However, the uncertainty is far from over for California cap-and-trade. State legislators have been in the process of trying to figure out how to extend the program beyond 2020, when by some measures it will lose authority. At the same time, the state is trying to meet more aggressive greenhouse gas reduction targets beyond 2020, and advocates say that a more aggressive cap-and-trade program will be important to make sure the state gets to those goals. 

The governor had wanted to have an agreement on how to extend cap-and-trade in California by the time the state budget was signed. But that deadline came and went earlier this week, and cap-and-trade wasn’t addressed in it.

Several related bills in the Assembly have failed to gain approval. A controversial bill in the Senate hasn’t yet been able to move to a vote.

Legislators and constituents are at odds over a variety of issues including: making sure local air pollution (not just greenhouse gas emissions) is addressed; the use of offsets to meet cap-and-trade reductions, particularly when they’re for out-of-state projects; and the need for a floor and a ceiling for carbon pricing. Some stakeholders want significant changes to California’s cap-and-trade program, while others want it to remain very similar to the current version. 

California’s cap-and-trade program has widely been seen as one of the world’s most sophisticated and ambitious emissions trading schemes. Europe launched one years ago, and Quebec and Ontario both have one as well. Several U.S. states on the East Coast have cap-and-trade programs, but they're specifically for power plant emissions.

But there's more pressure on California to get the design of its program right, given that it’s such a world leader in the clean energy domain. China has been working on trials of cap-and-trade programs in various regions, and has taken lessons learned from California. 

Designing the market mechanisms and economic levers of cap-and-trade programs can be difficult. But it’s even harder to get comprehensive programs approved politically.

The L.A. Times reported late last week that Governor Brown has been hosting a steady stream of meetings to try to come to an agreement on the extension. Brown hopes to find a solution in July, before legislators go to summer recess on July 21. His team has also reportedly been developing and circulating draft proposals.

State legislators are somewhat wary of another controversial vote after recently passing one to raise the state’s gas tax (which triggered a fierce backlash and even a recall campaign). The governor also wants the vote to achieve a two-thirds approval in both houses of the legislature, which will help ward off future lawsuits. 

Governor Brown has taken an increasingly high-profile role on the world stage when it comes to climate change. While President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the Paris agreement, Brown has visited China and liaised with world leaders on the issue of city and state climate action.


          The Latest Trends in Corporate Renewable Energy Procurement   

We're entering a new era in corporate renewable energy purchasing. 

The space has grown exponentially and diversified significantly since Google and Apple made their first renewable energy procurements in 2012. Where and how corporations are purchasing renewables is also evolving, according to Hervé Touati, managing director of the Rocky Mountain Institute.

Here are the major takeaways from his talk this week at GTM's Grid Edge World Forum.

Demand on track to surpass 2016

RMI tracked 1.24 gigawatts of corporate renewable energy procurements from the beginning of January through June 15 of this year. Procurements spiked in 2015, when the industry predicted that Congress would not extend the Production Tax Credit for wind and the Investment Tax Credit for solar. Since then, corporate renewable energy demand has returned to more incremental growth.

Demand remains strong, however, with 2017 on track out outpace 2016. "You can see it's a growing trend," said Touati. 

FIGURE: Additional Corporate Demand in Gigawatts

So far it's been a big-company game

The increase in renewable energy deals comes as an increasing number of companies make bold clean energy commitments. Today, more than 95 companies have pledged to go 100 percent renewable as part of the RE100 campaign. Several of those companies, including Google, Microsoft and Lego, and have already hit their targets. 

But while sustainability goals have become more widespread, Touati noted that these commitments -- and, more strikingly, renewable energy procurements -- are still concentrated among the world's largest companies.

FIGURE: Renewable Energy PPAs and Sustainability Targets

 

Diversification is a growing trend, though. One trigger is that large companies are starting to demand sustainability measures be met across their supply chain. In 2015, Apple launched a 2-gigawatt clean energy initiative in China, in order to tackle its supply chain emissions. As part of that initiative, iPhone manufacturer Foxconn will construct 400 megawatts of solar by 2018.

Walmart has also launched a major supply chain initiative -- dubbed the corporate America's "moonshot" -- that seeks to remove 1 gigaton, or 1 billion tons, of greenhouse gas emissions from its supply chain by 2030. Energy is one of six areas where suppliers can make improvements.

"When the first five to 10 companies turn back and look at their supply chain, that could open up significant new opportunities [for renewables]," said Touati.

New rate structures are also helping to expand and diversify the corporate clean energy market. Momentum created by the "We Are Still In" movement in response to the Trump administration's withdrawal from the Paris Agreement is helping to get new corporate players engaged as well, Touati said. The group currently includes some 2,086 governors, mayors, businesses, investors, and colleges and universities, three-quarters of which are businesses and investors.

Winner's curse

Another emerging trend in corporate renewable energy procurements is the “winner’s curse,” as Touati calls it. This is where the price and the value of a renewable energy project do not match, and the customer’s asset does not deliver the expected return on investment. If not addressed, this issue could put a chill on the corporate renewables space.

The issue is particularly pronounced in the Southwest Power Pool, evidenced in the map below showing wind-weighted electricity prices. In the red areas, wind energy production gets more than $20 megawatt-hour, while in the blue areas production gets just $5 per megawatt hour. “That’s really cheap for electricity,” said Touati.

A lot of wind developers put projects in the blue areas because the land is cheap, the projects are easy to permit, and the wind resource is strong. But that does not necessarily mean it’s a good deal for the customer.

FIGURE: 2016 Wind-Weighted Hourly Energy Prices in SPP Territory 

Corporates often contract for renewables at a fixed price and receive credit for the renewable energy that project produces, while the actual electrons that project generates are sold into a wholesale market -- a model known a virtual PPA. The expectation is that the wholesale market prices will be higher than the PPA price, or that they will increase over time, and the corporate buyer will save money on the whole. But those savings aren’t always there, as experts have explained

"As a corporate buyer, you need to start to look at your renewable energy procurement the same way you look at real estate procurement: It's all about location,” Touati said.

“What you should care about is not the cost of production; it's the difference between the value of electricity being produced and the cost of production,” he added. "If you produce at $50 and the [market] value is $60, you have a better deal than producing at $25 and the value [being] at $20.”

RMI recently released a market platform that helps commercial customers identify opportune areas to negotiate renewable energy deals, including node-level price data and a future analysis of transmission congestion. The platform is available to members of RMI’s Business Renewables Center.

RMI also formally incorporated the nonprofit WattTime as a subsidiary organization this week, with the aim of helping more corporate customers reduce their carbon footprint cost-effectively. WattTime’s software "can automatically detect the actual emissions impacts when people and companies use energy -- both in real time and ahead of time -- so any device connected to the internet can use power at times when our electricity is the cleanest,” according to a press release.

WattTime “measures precisely the carbon content of every megawatt-hour produced. If you are more interested in actually having an impact on reducing CO2 emissions, this tool can also tell you where to invest in wind and solar,” said Touati.

Opening the flood gates

Despite the possible risks and challenges, Touati believes corporate renewable energy procurement is on track for more exponential growth.

"I believe the future will be a flood in the making," he said.

A big part of that has to do with how deals get done. The vast majority of megawatts contracted for to date were signed through virtual power agreements, and those structures can only be signed in organized markets, according to Touati. But new deal options are now emerging as the market for corporate renewables matures. Whether it's a green tariff, direct access, a green pricing program, a retail sleeve or some other structure, at least one kind of deal is currently available somewhere in the country.

FIGURE: Organized Markets Versus Vertically Integrated Utilities

 

But vertically integrated markets are still difficult to work in. The chart above shows that it's almost three times harder to get a deal done with a vertically integrated utility territory. "I believe this is going to change for a number of reasons," said Touati.

First, some customers are getting impatient, such as MGM in Nevada. The casino and hotel company wasn't satisfied with its utility, NV Energy, and so it struck a deal to pay a fee and opt out of the utility territory. Microsoft is exploring a similar structure, Touati said. "That's pretty radical; it is certainly changing the market in regulated states," he said.

Second, in order to have a green tariff with a utility, you take the typical electricity cost, add the cost of wind and solar, and subtract the utility's avoided cost. In the past, that meant that corporations could do a renewable energy deal, but they had to pay a premium for it. Now, with solar and wind costs getting lower and lower, that differential is going away.

Touati asked: Who would prefer to pay more for dirty power when they could pay less for clean power?

"That's were the flood is going to come from," he said.


          10 Battery Gigafactories Are Now in the Works. And Elon Musk May Add 4 More   

Gigafactory announcements have been trending in recent months, with plans for at least 10 new plants revealed in the last six months. Half a dozen have been planned in the last month alone.

In Germany, for example, the Daimler subsidiary Accumotive laid the foundation for a $550 million plant designed to take annual lithium-ion battery production from its current level of 80,000 units up to around 320,000.

And Energy Absolute, of Thailand, reportedly has plans for a $2.9 billion factory in Asia, with an annual production capacity of 1 gigawatt-hour per year, scaling to 50 gigawatt-hours a year by 2020. 

Meanwhile, a consortium including Boston Energy and Innovation (BEI), Charge CCCV, C&D Assembly, Primet Precision Materials and Magnis Resources confirmed it will build a 15-gigawatt-hour-a-year plant on IBM’s former Huron Campus manufacturing site in New York.

BEI, Charge CCCV, C&D Assembly and Magnis Resources are also working with Eastman Kodak Group to build a similarly sized plant near Townsville in Queensland, Australia. The backers have said the plant could create around 7,000 jobs. 

More recently a company called Energy Renaissance has lifted the lid on plans for a factory in Darwin, in Australia’s Northern Territory, with a production capacity of a gigawatt-hour of batteries a year.

The most aggressive gigafactory plans, however, remain with the company that came up with the concept. Tesla’s Elon Musk has said he will announce “probably four” new gigafactories this year. One has long been slated for Europe, and another has been confirmed to be in the works in Shanghai, China. 

The recent announcements follow at least five gigafactory proposals put forward for Europe before the end of last year, including facilities in Sweden, Hungary and Poland. Not all the new plants will focus on lithium-ion batteries, though. 

The U.S. lead-acid battery maker Johnson Controls, for example, unveiled proposals for two Chinese plants with a combined annual capacity of 13.5 million batteries.

The company already has production capacity for 16 million batteries a year, from a factory in Chongqing and one in Zhejiang, and is looking invest $250 million in a new plant that could produce up to 7.5 million units a year in Shandong from 2019. 

A second plant would follow in 2020. The increased capacity is aimed at satisfying growing demand from the start-stop engine market.

Overall, Bloomberg reports that global battery-making capacity is set to more than double by 2021, topping 278 gigawatt-hours a year compared to 103 gigawatt-hours at present.

The massive planned increase in battery production feels similar to the Chinese manufacturing boom that radically altered the PV landscape around a decade ago, by creating oversupply that ultimately led to the demise of dozens of solar firms.

Could the same phenomenon be underway in battery manufacturing?

Probably not, say storage experts. The pricing declines won't be nearly as dramatic due to supply chain differences. 

"Unlike PV, battery raw materials are rare metals that have to be mined and processed, so they will have constant supply-demand push-pull, minimizing risk of supply glut," said Ravi Manghani, director of GTM Research's storage practice.

"The industry is in the middle of a huge cost declines phase as manufacturers continue to bring large gigafactories on-line. While some individual vendors may see massive cost step-downs as facilities are activated or new generation products with superior density are launched, on a macro level, the declines are going to be much more gradual," said Manghani.

According to Logan Goldie-Scot, head of Bloomberg New Energy Finance's storage practice, the growth in production capacity is already considered in pricing forecasts.

“We're already factoring the ramp-up in production capacity and ongoing price decreases into our analysis,” said Goldie-Scot. “I don't foresee a step-change reduction in price.”

By 2030, BNEF expects battery pack prices to fall to $73 per kilowatt-hour, down from a volume-weighted average of $273 per kilowatt-hour in 2016. 

“This is an average, though,” he said. “We're already seeing pack prices below $200 per kilowatt-hour.”

David Hart, director at E4tech, an international strategic consultancy focused on sustainable energy, said much of the upcoming capacity will be needed to satisfy forecast growth in vehicle electrification. 

“Building gigafactories is a logical next step in creating a battery industry that's fit for the purpose of supplying vehicles,” he said. “I don't think the rise in gigafactories will necessarily result in a price crash.”

Even if the battery market is unlikely to face the same pressures as solar, it will still grapple with challenges of its own.

“Very importantly, it's not clear that the resource supply chains exist yet for all these factories,” Hart said. “Lithium and cobalt supply needs to be increased, and everyone is vying for supply.”


          Honda Civic Type-R – more expensive, less power than the Focus RS   
More expensive and less powerful, the Honda Civic Type-R is an interesting offering compared to Ford’s Focus RS. Today we get the final, possibly most important detail for the Type-R, its pricing. The Type-R is a 2.0L Turbocharged powerhouse, good for 228kW, deploying that power at a rate of 400Nm. When I plug in my postcode (3690) that performance is available from $56,450 (note you may find it cheaper). This doesn’t compare particularly favorably when positioned next to the closest rival, the Ford Focus RS at $55,438 which delivers 257kW through 440Nm of torque through a  2.3L engine. The Honda certainly looks more aggressive with some crazy track-tested aerodynamics kit, unique triple-exhaust tip at the rear and 20″ black allows […]
          A SMALL PLATE OF CAI FAN COSTS $10.30 AT VIVOCITY!   

Dear A.S.S. Editor

Hi, yesterday on 29 June 2017 Thursday, I went to eat at Food Republic at Vivo City on the 4th floor. I ordered at the cai fan, cause i wanted to eat something cheaper. I ordered egg with some small prawns, one fish and a veg with curry sauce.

The total price was $10.30! When the guy read out the pricing, I was shocked and thought it was a joke at first as i thought that my 10 dollars note that I was holding in my hand should be enough. In the end I have no choice but to pay. The portion they gave was not even worth the price. Me and my friend tried to clarify with the guy but he still insist that the price was accurate.

Please never ever go to the stall again as the pricing, the quality and quantity is such a scam. $10.30 for an 'economical' cai fan seems a bit too expensive, not to mention that the portion is small compare to other stalls too.

          Gionee A1 review   

With good features and aggressive pricing, Chinese manufacturers like Gionee have been able to give big brands a run for their money. In an industry like this, innovation is the key. We’ve seen premium brands push boundaries by introducing extreme high-end features, fancy designs and bezeless screens. Gionee has taken a safe approach with their new flagship, the A1 by focusing on a better front camera and a strong battery life. The phone also comes with Android’s latest Nougat operating system. It’s priced aggressively just under Rs. 20,000*. So does the Gionee A1 make for an interesting phone at that price point? There’s only one way to find out!

Design and build

There is nothing exceptional about the A1’s design but it manages to fulfill the basic requirements. The phone comes with a metal build all around and has a slim profile. Its back panel features a smooth matte finish and rounded edges that make it comfortable to hold. You even get a Gorilla Glass coating at the front, so it’s reasonably sturdy.

Gionee A1_design2

Gionee hasn’t put a lot of attention to the smaller details and that shows. The two antenna lines at back for example, look bad and add a very rigid feel to the otherwise smooth finish. That also goes for the speaker grill at the bottom. Adding to that, the glass finish at the front ends up being a big fingerprint magnet. These are of course small things.

Gionee A1_logo

Besides that, there are also a few odd things, like the Gionee logo at the back looks like a finger print sensor but it isn’t. It’s placed exactly below the camera and carries a similar housing, like on many other phones. We are so used to that design that for the first few times, we kept pressing the logo hoping that it will unlock the phone.

Gionee A1_colours

We’d still say that the design is good. Even with a 5.5-inch screen, the phone is usable in one hand. It doesn’t have a slim bezel like we’ve seen on other phones lately, but it is still pretty slim. Reaching the volume rocker keys and the standby button is very easy when using the phone in one hand. The home button at the front also doubles as the finger print sensor, and has a satisfying travel to it. The two buttons around it are capacitive. We had the black variant of the phone, which we prefer because it is subtle. You can also get the phone in Gold and Grey.

Camera

The A1 is all about selfies. There’s no doubt about that, since it comes with a 16MP front-facing camera equipped with an aperture of f2.0 and a front-facing flash. We really like the clarity and fine details. The A1’s camera managed to even capture the details in hair pretty well. That sort of clarity is hard to miss. Skin tones look pretty natural too. Photos clicked indoors looked vibrant for the most part. In a few cases they looked slightly over-exposed, but switching to HDR helped maintain good contrast.

Gionee A1_front camera

Focusing by the front camera happens quickly in decent lighting. In backlit scenarios though, it takes time and doesn’t always get it right. We’re not complaining though, because we’ve seen most smartphones produce poorer results in such situations. Changes made by the Beauty mode on the camera aren’t very subtle and quite often the image looks unnatural and in a few cases, horrifying.

Gionee A1_selfie

The rear camera is also pretty good at 13MP. It has a similar aperture value and dual tone flash, but lacks image stabilization. Video recording is also limited to full HD. Being a camera phone, we were expecting good images but the outcome is slightly disappointing. Colors looked too saturated, which made the images gaudy. There is no consistency with the focusing. However, with close-up macro shots, it performed really well. In most cases, it was also the lack of image stabilization that resulted in blurry images. There is a Professional shooting mode on the camera, which helps in focusing better. We weren’t able to bring down the colours though.

Gionee A1_mode

Besides that, the camera app is loaded with a whole range of features. There are 12 different modes to choose from. Other features like card scanner, QR code reader and language translator are all built into the camera app. It’s great because you don’t have to install separate apps for these. There are also a whole range of colorful filters to play around with.

Having all those features is good, but that also makes the camera app very sluggish. We noticed stuttering while using both cameras. It only gets worse when you’re using the Professional mode or any of the other filters for the rear camera. The dials have a very noticeable lag to them. Besides that, the phone also takes plenty of time to process images. With the resolution set to high, we had to wait almost for a second before the photo showed up in the Gallery. We personally didn’t like the interface of the camera either. It looks like a tackier version of the one seen on iOS.

Amigo interface

The Gionee A1 comes with Android 7 (Nougat) layered with their proprietary Amigo UI. We aren’t big fans of the UI because it’s heavy and there’s plenty of bloatware included in form of games and unnecessary tools like theme finder. There are a bunch of third-party apps included as well. As a result, it feels very sluggish and unresponsive. You notice it the minute you start scrolling through the app drawer.

Gionee A1_interface

The notification drawer is kept separate from the control panel. The quick settings panel has to be scrolled from the bottom, another design element borrowed from iOS. The Settings app is a little confusing to get around the first time. Here you’ll also find a separate Features tab, which carries quick tutorials for features of Android Nougat and Amigo. Some examples include the Split-screen feature, Battery manager and Quick Charging. A big disappointment is the omission of Google Assistant.

Gionee A1_Amigo features

For us, it was the poor implementation of features that made the experience less than ideal. For example, on the homescreen you can add an Edge bar, which carries shortcuts to certain apps of your choice. It can be scrolled-in from either of sides of the screen, with the help of the home button. It sounds good but it kept interrupting whenever we pressed the home button. Even setting a fingerprint means having to go through three steps of authentication which puts you off. The most annoying thing about the interface though is the lock screen. It presents you with a list of random news stories in the form of pictorial cards. It’s difficult to disable this feature.

Gionee A1_Amigo features 2

The only thing we ended up liking are the quick gestures. You can answer calls by simply placing the phone on ear or switch off the alarm by simply flipping the phone. You can also use a whole range of lockscreen gestures to get quick access to apps or perform certain functions. The fingerprint sensor is also pretty snappy and unlocks almost immediately after you place your thumb on it.

Performance

The Gionee A1 comes with a 4,010 mAh battery which is pretty impressive. For its size, it has about twice the capacity compared to other phones. There is support for fast charging too. Gionee claims that the phone charges completely in about two hours, but you have to use the charger provided in-the-box. We would’ve liked a USB Type-C port too. There is also an Extreme mode included which helps save battery. Gionee claims it can run for 400 hours on a single charge.

Gionee A1_Extreme mode

You get a MediaTek 6755 octa-core processor running alongside 4GB of RAM, which might sound good on paper, but was a letdown when it came to the actual performance. We noticed the phone stuttering, even while scrolling through Facebook and Instagram feeds. Images take more time to load in both apps. There is a noticeable performance drop, when more apps are loaded in the background. Apps take more time to open and close. Somewhat intensive games such as Super Mario Run work fine, but heavy games likes Asphalt 8: Airborne and N.O.V.A Legacy showed signs of stuttering. They are still playable, but to get the best performance out of them, you need to close apps running in the background.

Gionee A1_splitscreen

One area where the A1 exceeded our expectations is the screen. It’s bright and looks very lively. The colour temperature on the cooler side, but you can adjust that from the settings. Brightness levels are also good for outdoors. It’s only the viewing angles where the Gionee A1 falls short. The built-in speakers are loud but sound very shallow. The much needed punch is missing so the experience while playing music isn’t very enjoyable. They’re still decent enough for playing games or watching YouTube videos.

Gionee A1_display

We ran a couple of benchmarks and got the following scores

Gionee A1_benchmarks

The scores are pretty low. In AnTuTu, the phone managed to get 49,773. We’ve seen other phone in the same price range perform much better. With GFX OpenGL’s, low-level test, the smartphone was able to run 1080p videos at 13FPS, which is pretty low. 3D Mark score was decent at 400. Even with the low scores, the Gionee A1 surprisingly offers a decent media performance.


          BNZ pushes OCR hike track from Q1 to mid-2018 with 'trepidation'; Says Governor change, election makes forecasting harder; Notes weak Q2 inflation guides, but maintains capacity pressure & growth mean tightening bias is needed   

The Reserve Bank’s harshest critics have shifted their view on when the Official Cash Rate will need to be hiked, back slightly towards the central bank’s own projection.

BNZ economists said they were now pencilling in “with some trepidation” the next hike in mid-2018, compared to an earlier expectation of Q1 2018. The Reserve Bank itself isn’t forecasting a rise in the OCR until September 2019 at the earliest. Market pricing is also for mid-2018.

Despite the shift, BNZ economists said there remains huge uncertainty about the next move, and they were still not ruling out a February 2018 rate hike. However, a May or August hike appeared a better reflection of the situation – partly because the Bank would be issuing Monetary Policy Statements in these months, giving a new RBNZ Governor the ability to explain his or her reasoning better than in a pure OCR statement, like in June.

The BNZ’s Head of Research, Stephen Toplis, has been the RBNZ’s number one critic in recent years, with Reserve Bank Governor Graeme Wheeler even resorting to the extraordinary step of complaining to BNZ CEO Anthony Healy about the tone of Toplis’ commentary earlier this year.

In the BNZ’s latest Strategist publication Thursday evening, Toplis sought to keep the heat on the Bank, albeit with perhaps a slightly less aggressive tone. A lot of the reasoning behind the shift was down to how BNZ’s economists expect the RBNZ’s game plan will evolve.

“Given that the Bank’s current forecasts have no increase in rates until late 2019/early 2020, it would be difficult to justify a hike in rates any time soon without first acknowledging that the time for doing so was no longer so distant,” Toplis said.

“As such, we think the first action of the central bank would be to go to a tightening bias, the second to formally bring forward any prospective tightening and then, finally, actually pull the trigger. Given that the Reserve Bank doesn’t seem to like shifting its stance at OCR reviews, this process would need to evolve over three consecutive Monetary Policy Statements.

“If we are right, this would mean, at the earliest, an August 2017 move to a tightening bias, November bring forward the projected tightening and then February 2018 raise rates.”

But it might take slightly longer than that to play out. Toplis argued the Bank’s May MPS revealed no intent whatsoever to position it to move to a tightening stance in August, keeping its ‘neutral’ tone. “As hard to believe as this may be, it is the Bank’s stated view so can’t be ignored,” he said.

Could reasonably be talking rate cuts, but inflation pressures remain

Meanwhile, economic developments since the May MPS were more likely to convince the Bank it was doing the right thing. Q1 GDP was weaker than expected, although BNZ was expecting a pick up in Q2 to cover the shortfall. Inflation indicators – particularly driven by the oil price – had taken a turn to the low side, he said.

BNZ economists themselves had slashed their CPI inflation expectations for the near term to 0.1% in Q2 and 0.2% in Q3. “This now leaves our year to March 2018 annual CPI forecast sitting at just 1.2%.” On top of this, the TWI exchange rate tracker has remained higher than the RBNZ had been picking, which itself would shave 0.5% of its year-ahead CPI forecasts.

“Indeed, at face value, [the developments] would demand rate cuts,” Toplis admitted. Add in that banks themselves have been increasing mortgage rates without the OCR moving, bank lending constraints and a softening housing market, “one might reasonably ask why, under these conditions, we are even talking about rate increases at all.”

He gave his reasoning: Food prices remained stubbornly high, core inflation looked set to sit above headline inflation, inflation expectations would remain at or above the 2% mid-point, fiscal policy would be stimulatory, commodity prices had risen, capacity utilisation was high and the labour market continued to tighten.

What’s more, central banks around the world were shifting to tightening stances, including the US Fed, Bank of England, European Central Bank and the Bank of Canada. “If these respective central banks do start moving in the manner implied it will make it easier for the RBNZ to do likewise,” Toplis said.

“Importantly, Governor Wheeler seems to have been heavily influenced by the actions and rhetoric of the key central banks in the past. Indeed, it is this, more than anything that has created our trepidation in pushing back our expectations of the RBNZ’s expected rate track, particularly given that we believe both inflation and capacity pressures are greater in New Zealand than in Canada,” he said.

On top of all that, Toplis maintained that interest rate settings in New Zealand appeared more consistent with an economy that was under stress, rather than one growing steadily.

Eye on election, next governor

Meanwhile, with one eye on the 23 September election, and the other on the Reserve Bank’s upcoming Governorship change, Toplis argued that “forecasting the actions of the RBNZ over the next twelve months is even more fraught with danger than normal.” Graeme Wheeler will step aside in September, and interim Governor Spencer in March 2018.

“Even if the Bank’s mandate remains unchanged, we know from both past New Zealand experience and what’s happened offshore that the culture of the central bank can change and even its interpretation of the “rules” can do likewise,” Toplis said.

“At the extreme, a new Governor may even choose, with the support of the Finance Minister to adjust the Policy Targets Agreement. There is certainly significant precedence for this. And, last but not least, we do have a General Election which could conceivably deliver a new Minister of Finance with a very different view of how the RBNZ should operate.

“Our view on where the rate hike cycle begins is not that different to the market’s with June 2018 currently priced in for the first move. June, of course, is unlikely as it’s an OCR review date not an MPS. The market then has a second rate hike by November 2018 with the potential for a couple more the following year.

“We still think that, ultimately, the cash rate will need to push up to and through neutral and that when the process begins it will tend to be quicker than the market will price. We do not know exactly where neutral is these days but we do think it is substantially higher than where rates currently are. We have, for now, lopped the top off the peak in our OCR track to 3.0% from 3.75% to acknowledge the widening spread between the cash rate and lending rates but acknowledge that this spread has changed significantly in the past and can do so again.”


          Less dovish comments from central banks are driving a global bond and equity sell-off, which is being led by Europe; NZD the worst performing currency, along with a soft USD, in a risk-off environment   

By Jason Wong

The coordinated, less dovish, tone of major central banks remains at the forefront of mind for investors, driving a good old-fashioned sell-off in the bond market and equities.  In the risk-off environment, the NZD is the worst performing currency, alongside a still-soft USD.

Euro area data showed rising economic confidence to its highest level in a decade, while Germany CPI data were higher than expected.  This sort of dataset supported ECB President Draghi’s speech earlier in the week, where he sowed for the seed for an eventual removal of monetary policy accommodation.  With a chorus of central banks now singing the same tune, this idea is gradually permeating through asset markets, a theme we suspect will continue in the months ahead.  No panic has set in but we are seeing global bond yields grinding higher and equity markets grinding lower. 

Following a chunky 1.3% fall in the Euro Stoxx 600, the S&P500 was down 1.4% when I started tapping away but is now down by “only” 0.9%.  The VIX index spiked up to 15, but now sits just below 13.  Losses have been driven by further rotation away from the tech sector and even as financial stocks have gained, with a more positive yield curve and the Fed’s positive bank stress tests, which open the way for increased dividend payments.

The global bond market sell-off has been led by Europe, with the UK 10-year gilt up 10bps to 1.25% and German 10-year bunds up 8bps to 0.45%.  US 10-year Treasuries have traded as high as 2.29%, but are currently 2.26%, up about 4bps from the NZ close.  The yield curve has steepened again, with the 2-year rate up less than 2bps to 1.37%.

In currency markets, the NZD is leading the charge lower with the risk-off backdrop, down against all the major currencies, and the 0.2% fall against the USD to 0.7290 moderated to the extent that the USD itself is trading weakly.  Yesterday afternoon the NZD found some support after the very positive ANZ business outlook survey, which highlighted underlying economic  support for the economy, although rising capacity constraints look to be a curb on growth and are leading to higher inflationary pressure.  The 0.7330 level the currency reached in the hour after that release proved to be the high for the day. Earlier in the week we noted the vulnerability of the NZD to the downside, given the surge in net speculative long positions to their highest level in four years.  Fast-month accounts are likely trimming those positions, with lower risk appetite the order of the day.

The AUD hasn’t suffered during this episode.  Commodity prices have been supported by the weakness in the USD, while iron ore prices continue to show a significant recovery.  They tacked on another 4% yesterday, following similar rises over the previous two days.  The AUD is up 0.5% to 0.7675, dragging NZD/AUD down below 0.95.  Both of our short-term fair value models currently show the 0.95 level to be a fair price.

Both EUR and GBP are up about 0.5% against the USD to 1.1430 and around 1.30 respectively.  The BoE’s Chief Economist Haldane told the BBC that the central bank needed to look seriously at raising rates, a repeat of his comments last week.   OIS pricing shows a growing probability of a BoE rate increase as the year progresses, but the first full hike not priced until early next year.  NZD/GBP is trading down to around 0.56, while NZD/EUR moved sub-0.64.  Our highest conviction call is for further NZD/EUR weakness, with a likely move sub-60 just being a matter of time, either later this year or early next year.

The yen remains out of favour, with the BoJ likely needing to step up its JGB purchases to keep its 10-year rate close to zero amidst the global bond sell-off.  Still, it has managed to strengthen against the USD a little, with USD/JPY back down to around 112.  NZD/JPY is 0.5% lower at 81.6.

NZ rates remain at the mercy of global trends, with even the short end of the curve being impacted by the less dovish global central banks, despite the RBNZ’s clear policy guidance of unchanged rates for some time.  The 2-year swap rate has broken out of its 2.15-2.25% range to the upside, rising 3bps to 2.2750.  The OIS curve has brought forward expectations of the first RBNZ hike.  A May 2018 hike is now within a few basis points of being fully priced. 

The NZ 10-year swap rate rose by 5bps to 3.26%.  More savage moves were seen in the bond market, with NZ’s 10-year rate rising 8.5bps to 2.875%, underperforming the US bond sell-off in the order of 5bps.

The economic calendar ahead is full. During the NZ market open, Japan CPI and China PMI data will be closely watched.  US PCE deflator data are expected to be soft, as indicated by previously released CPI data. Euro-area CPI data are likely to be higher than the now out-of-date consensus, following stronger Germany CPI data.

          A review of things you need to know before you go home Thursday; ANZ business outlook survey; the value of sunshine; insurer compliance; IMF on LVR; Australian household wealth; rates and NZD up   

Here are the key things you need to know before you leave work today.

MORTGAGE RATE CHANGES
No changes today.

DEPOSIT RATE CHANGES
No changes today.

BUSINESS OUTLOOK
ANZ Business Outlook Survey for June, out today, showed that a net 25% businesses are optimistic about the year ahead compared to 15% last month. A net 43% expected better times for their own business, up from 38% in May. While investment intentions, export intentions, profit expectations and pricing intentions were up, residential construction and expectations of ease of getting credit were lower.

THE VALUE OF SUNSHINE
Motu Economic and Public Policy Research Trust has published first of its kind research that tries to estimate the value sunshine expousure adds to a property. The premise is that a house with more sunshine has a higher value and Motu estimates that "each additional hour of direct sunlight exposure for a house per day, on average across the year, adds 2.4% to a dwelling’s market value." By attaching a value to sunlight exposure, the research may enable home owners, who lose sunlight exposure as a result a developments around their house, to receive monetary compensation.

IMF ON LVR
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) says that the Loan to Value ratio (LVR) limits imposed by the Reserve Bank have helped ease house prices but have not been sufficient in reducing the risk that borrowers face from rising interest rates or economic shocks that reduce household incomes. Other benefits of the LVR are lower mortgage lending by banks and more better-quality-loans being held on the bank's books.

INSURERS NEED TO UP THEIR GAME
A recent survey by the RBNZ showed that, from a sample of 36 of the 89 insurers, the overall level of compliance, in regards to disclosure rules around financial strength and solvency information, was well short of minimum requirements. 53% insurers comply at a low to poor level, 22% are performing well but there is room for improvement and only three demonstrated excellent level of compliance.

AUSTRALIAN HOUSEHOLD WEALTH
As per the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics data, Australian households have a combined net worth of AU$9.6 tln, which is made up of AU$6.6 tln of land and dwellings, AU$4.8 bln of financial assets and AU$2.3 tln of long term borrowings. In the March quarter, household assets outgrew households debt and resulted in a 2.4% increase in net worth. Total household net worth in New Zealand was about NZ$1.0 tln, with NZ$1.2 tln of assets and NZ$0.2 tln of liabilities. However, New Zealand numbers are only available as at June 2015.

FIFTH STRAIGHT DAY
The People's Bank of China has skipped open market operations for the fifth straight day, citing "relatively high" liquidity levels in the banking system and increasing fiscal expenditures near month end. Reversing repos will drain a net 60 bln yuan from the market.

WHOLESALE RATES RISE
Local rates are again higher and steeper, following global moves overnight. The 2 year rate was up +3 bps to 2.27%, 5 year was up +5 bps to 2.79% and 10 year was up +5 bps to 3.26%. The 90 day bank bill rate is up +1 bps to 1.96%.

NZ DOLLAR HIGHER
The NZD is higher than this time yesterday at 73.2 USc and has spent most of the day above the 73.0 USc level. On the cross rates we are trading at 95.7 AUc and at 64.3 euro cents. That takes the TWI-5 to 77.11.

          Got Logs? Get a PaperTrail: First thoughts   
I stumbled upon Papertrail through a Twitter Ad (hey, those things work sometimes!) and figured that I should take a quick look. Given the amount of work I’ve been doing around compliance management and deployment of distributed systems, this seems like it may be an interesting fit. Luckily, they have a free tier as well […]]> I stumbled upon Papertrail through a Twitter Ad (hey, those things work sometimes!) and figured that I should take a quick look. Given the amount of work I’ve been doing around compliance management and deployment of distributed systems, this seems like it may be an interesting fit. Luckily, they have a free tier as well which means it’s easy to kick the tires on it before diving in with a paid commitment.

The concept seems fairly easy:

The signup process was pretty seamless. I went to the pricing page to see what the plan levels are which also has the Free Plan – Sign Up button nicely planted center of screen:

What I really like about this product is the potential to go by data ingestion rather than endpoints for licensing. Scalability is a concern with pricing for me, so knowing that the amount of aggregate data drives the price was rather comforting to me.

The free tier gets a first month with lots of data followed by a 100 MB per month follow on limit. That’s probably not too difficult to cap out at, so you can easily see that people will be drawn to the 7$ first paid tier which ups the data to 1GB of storage and 1 year of retention. Clearly, at 7 days retention for the free tier, this is meant to just give you a taste and leave you looking for more if the usability is working for you.

First Steps and the User Experience

On completion of the first form, there is a confirmation email. You are also logged in immediately and ready to roll with the simple welcome screen:

Clicking the button to get started brings you to the instruction screen complete with my favorite (read: most despised) method of deploying which is pushing a script into a sudo bash pipe.

There is an option to run each script component which is much more preferred so you can see the details of what is happening.

Once you’ve done the initial setup process, you get a quick response showing you have active events being logged:

Basic logging is one thing for the system, so the next logical step is to up the game a bit and add some application level logging which is done using the remote-rsyslog2 collector. The docs and process to deploy are available inside the Papertrail site as well:

Now that I’ve got both by system and an application (I’ve picked the Apache error log as a source location) working, I’m redirected to see the live results in my Events screen (mildly censored to protect the innocent):

You can highlight some specific events and drill down into the different context views by highlighting and clicking anywhere in the events screen:

Searching the logs is pretty simple with a search bar that uses simple structured search commands to look for content. Searches are able to be saved and stored for reporting and repetitive use.

On the first pass, this looks like a great product and is especially important for you to think about as you look at how to aggregate logs for the purpose of search and retention for security and auditing.

The key will be making sure that you clearly define the firewall and VPC rules to ensure you have access to the remote server at Papertrail and then to make sure that you keep track of the data you need to retain. I’ve literally spent 15 minutes in the app and that was from first click to live viewing of system and application logs. All that and it’s free too.

There is a referral link which you can use here if you want to try it out.

Give it a try if you’re keen and let me know your experiences or other potential products that are freely available that could do the same thing. It’s always good to share our learnings with the community!

          A new countdown   
started last night. Uh huh, counting down until the *next* trip to Australia, which is happening a year earlier than I anticipated.

It all began the last time I was there, half a year ago. Heino and I tracked Gary down; found the bastard two days before I had to return to Phoenix! Gary, if you've forgotten (or haven't poked around in the archives under 'our movie' over there --->) was the third member of the triumvirate involved in the making of the movie aforesaid.

Heino and I were the other two.

We spent a wonderful evening, the three of us, watching our movie and reminiscing. As the senior member I wussed out around 3 AM - I was falling asleep. I understand the two of them kept at it for another two hours! On the Sunday Gary met us at the airport as I was leaving and we got a shot of the three of us.

Well, just because I was condemned to a long flight back home to the US did not mean that Heino and Gary were. They, it seems, repaired to Garys house and continued the reminiscence.

Now you have to understand that Heino, in particular, just can't let sleeping dogs lie. I reckon he'd see one in proximity to a stick and just have to use the latter to poke the former. Hence the latest project - the digital remaster, in widescreen dolby thundervision, of our movie. I've been roped in to write the soundtrack. I'm not sure I *can* write 47 minutes of music of interest to a general audience but I'll sure try.

Hence the planning of a trip back to Australia in September 2010 - we reckon we might have finished the remastering by then! Besides, it's always good, on projects such as this, to have a deadline.

Things have proceeded to the point where they've already selected the venue, the Sun Theatre[^] in Yarraville. They couldn't have chosen a better venue! It is, after all, one the cinemas I used to frequent with my mates back in the early 60's when they still did Saturday afternoon matinees. If you can be bothered clicking on the link you'll see that it's moved on a bit since those days; what was once one large cinema is now 6, each named after cinemas of the area from the 30's on, most of them now closed and most of them once enjoying my patronage as a small urchin!

It seemed to me, a couple of weeks ago, that it might be fun for Sonya to come with me to Australia this time (September 2010). Thus to some planning. Minor details such as how much it will cost!

Now you can't actually book a flight that far ahead so we thought we could at least get some indicative pricing by looking at pricing for September 2009. It didn't come as much of a surprise; approx $1800 each, return via United, a little less on Air New Zealand, a bit more on Qantas and a staggering $3400 each on Singapore Airlines. Chalk that up to Australian Federal Government policy over the last quarter century; there were only two airlines permitted to fly direct from the US to Australia (Qantas and United). Air New Zealand get around that by going through New Zealand, which is, at least, in the right direction. Singapore? That's a bit out of the way but they're Star Alliance so frequent flyer points accrue.

Last week Delta Airlines announced their fares for US to Australia, commencing in July. Uh huh, that 25 year old (at least) policy is relaxing a tad and by the end of the year there should be 4 airlines doing US to Australia direct. The opening fare was very tempting, $A777 return. Translated into US currency somewhat cheaper again. I started thinking, wouldn't it be great to go, alone, a year earlier *and* go again in 2010 with Sonya?

Of course there's a fly in the ointment. Ain't that always the way? This particular winged insect in the unguent is that the quoted price is Los Angeles to Sydney. Heck, all I want is an extra hours flight at each end, Phoenix to Los Angeles and Sydney to Melbourne.

Deltas offering is ridiculous. To fly from Phoenix to Sydney on Delta I'd have to do the following - Phoenix to Atlanta, Atlanta to Los Angeles, Los Angeles to Sydney and then I'm on my own as far as Delta are concerned. Same on the way back. Total travel time not counting the Sydney Melbourne leg? 33 hours each way! Delta don't even list *my* Melbourne as a destination; they only have the one in Florida.

Thus, last night, I found myself juggling itineraries on three airlines, one to get from Phoenix to Los Angeles, Delta itself to Sydney and then the parlous choices in Australia to get to Melbourne. Considerable scheduling difficulties (do I really want to try and catch a 5AM flight out of Phoenix?) and the ticket price was starting to add up.

On a whim I checked the United pricing again. And bugger me drunk if the fare hadn't dropped a thousand dollars in one week. Amazing what a new entrant to the market can do! On top of that, it's the familiar route, on the one airline, from Phoenix to Melbourne and back. Drop off my baggage in Phoenix and worry about it again in Melbourne!

Some quick emails back and forth to Heino (I *do* impose on the poor bastard) and it was settled. I clicked the booking button and went to bed with visions of fish and chips, dim sims and the whole rigamarole dancing in my head.

Oh, the countdown? 184 days at the time of writing. Not that I'm counting!

Plumbing Professionals
Hiring a plumber is not as easy as just picking up a phone book and picking one. You must ensure that you get a certified plumbing contractor and not some hack. To raise your percentages of selecting a good plumber there are some questions that you must ask. Continue reading this article to find out what those questions are.

The first query that you should ask is, "How long have you been a plumber?" This is an important question because if a plumber has been in business for a while they are more likely to be good - Mr Rooter has been servicing your community for 20 years

The next query you must ask is, "Are you insured?" If they are insured this means that you and your house is protected in the case of an unlucky event. If they are not insured then they are just not terribly pro and you should pass on using them.

A 3rd query to ask is, "Do you offer a written guarantee?" a professional cleaner will have no problem backing up their work with a written guesstimate. If they will not offer you a warranty you should be instantly nervous about their quality.

One last query you should ask is, "Do you have any references?" Id you are doing a large extensive plumbing job you should ask for references. IF they can not provide you at least a few good references it's a bad sign. After you get the list of references be sure to actually call them. You may be stunned how many companies give out bogus references or give out names of folks that were not even satisfied with the work.

Mr Rooter gets passing grades on all of these questions with flying colors! Ask us the hard questions - Then you will know you found the right company.Los Alamitos 90720 Plumbing And Los Alamitos Professional Plumbers Call (562) 444-3270

          CenturyLink Unveils Pricing For New Streaming Video Service -    


Centurylink has taken the wraps off the company's new $45 over the top streaming video service. The service, creatively named CenturyLink Stream, is now available as a paid beta, though users can test the service out starting this week via a free seven day trial. The base $45 package provides access to 48 live TV channels, and includes access to a cloud DVR that holds up to 50 hours of programming. The service allows up to three simultaneous streams, and will be offered to users both inside and outside of CenturyLink's traditional broadband footprint.

Users that currently have, or sign up for CenturyLink's existing broadband services, will nab a $5 monthly discount.

Fine print on the company's website notes that live streaming for local broadcast networks of ABC and NBC -- and the availability of certain regional sports networks -- are restricted to select regions. Those interested can check out the full channel lineup here. Showtime is being sold as a $9 per month add on, as is a number of additional channel packages ranging from $5 to $10 more per month.

Device support includes Android and iOS devices, PC/Macs, Roku devices, and a CenturyLink branded media player (4K capable set top with with 8GB of storage and dual-band Wi-Fi) the company is charging $90 for.

The company has been testing this service for a while, and has repeatedly hinted that it may ultimately replace its existing Prism IPTV platform with this service, given the notably lower costs of deployment.

"At this point we ll continue serving the markets that we re in and we think over time the over the top product might replace the Prism product over time," CenturyLink CFO Stewart Ewing told investors last year. CenturyLink CEO Glenn Post has mirrored those comments, stating that "with over-the-top product, we don t have to make a truck roll," and the company has "really deemphasized the Prism product because of the margin issue."

There's more detail on CenturyLink's new $45 streaming video service over at the company's website, and in the video embedded below.

          Mediacom Brings Gigabit Broadband Service to Indiana -    


Mediacom this week announced that the company is bringing its ultra-fast gigabit broadband service to its entire Indiana footprint. According to a company announcement, this expansion services consumers across 75 communities and 20 counties. Users in these markets can now sign up for 1 Gbps down, 50 Mbps up service with a 6 TB usage cap for $140 per month, or a 500 Mbps down, 30 Mbps up service with a 4 TB usage cap for $120 per month.

Our forum regulars say in some areas this pricing is only for new customers, with existing customers paying around $10 more per month for the same service.

Mediacom says the company will utilize its so-called "Gigasphere" project to eventually bring gigabit broadband services to virtually all of the 3 million homes and businesses within its 22 state footprint.

Mediacom has invested over $8 billion of private capital in its national network to ensure that the hardworking people living in America s smaller cities and towns can access world-class communications services," says the company of the launch. "We want the people and businesses of Indiana to succeed, and that is why we are thrilled to be able to offer ultrafast gigabit internet services across the entirety of our Hoosier State service territory."

As always, users can head into our Mediacom forum if they have questions about this, or any other Mediacom service.

          After Expanding Caps, Cox Promises More Expensive Unlimited Plan -    


Earlier this week we were the first to report that Cox Communications has started to ramp up deployment of unnecessary and confusing new usage caps and overage fees. But worry not! The company now says that it will allow you to avoid these artificial, arbitrary and unnecessary penalties by signing up for a new, more expensive unlimited data plan the company tells Multichannel News it plans to launch later this year. In other words: Cox is implementing entirely unnecessary restrictions and price hikes you will soon be able to avoid -- by paying the ISP significantly more money for the same service you had before.

Cox didn't tell the news outlet how much consumers will have to pay to avoid the company's usage overage scheme.

In capped Comcast territories (which at this point includes pretty much the company's entire footprint outside of the more competitive east coast), the company lets users pay $50 more for month if they want to avoid usage caps. Like Comcast, Cox is implementing a one terabyte cap -- then charging users $10 for each additional 50 GB of data consumed each month.

And while it's easy to fall into a debate over whether "one terabyte is perfectly reasonable for most people" -- that completely misses the point. Usage caps and overage fees are arbitrary and unnecessary price hikes on consumers, only made possible by the lack of competition. They do not help manage congestion, and flat-rate pricing is perfectly profitable. And if the small number of excessive users were really a problem, Cox could shove those users toward business-class tiers -- without having to impose confusing new penalties on all of its subscribers.

No, these usage caps and overage fees are solely about charging you more money for the same product, while simultaneously penalizing and cashing in on customer usage of streaming video alternatives. Of course companies like Cox can't admit this, so you'll notice in this week's e-mail to subscribers they don't even bother to provide any sensible justification for the plan whatsoever.

          Stock Picks for US Energy Dominance   
Tom Konrad, Ph.D. CFA

Thursday night (Friday morning in Sinapore) CNBC Asia's Street Signs program must have had an interview cancellation, because they needed someone to give them 3 energy stock picks in response the Trump's "Energy Dominance" speech on last minute notice.  They sent me (and probably a bunch of other people) an email two and a half hours before air.  I did not see it until 20 minutes before the actual interview.  I warned them that I do clean energy, not fossil fuels, but apparently they had no other takers who were awake and able to give energy stock picks at 11:23pm ET on a moment's notice.

I think they found me because I was on Capital Connection Asia in late January.  

I don't think I was quite what the host, Martin Soong was looking for.  He improvised well by turning from the Trump clip saying "if you want to do something entirely different, you might invest in alternative energy..."

I'm still trying to get video, but here's my memory of the interview.

MS: How is clean energy doing under Trump?
TK:  Great.  There was a little stumble after he was elected, but then the market figured out that he's living in the 20th century while the economy has moved on to the 21st.  Clean energy has turned the corner, and is now the cheapest source of new electricity. The market is realizing that, even if Trump doesn't.

MS: Do you have stock picks?

TK:  Atlantica Yield (ABY), Covanta Holding Co (CVA), and General Cable (BGC).  
I went on to describe why I like Atlantica - you can read about that and Covanta in my last 10 Clean Energy Stocks for 2017 update.
General Cable was a last minute add for me.  I'm very nervous about the market right now, so there are not many stocks I'm enthusiastic about.  I was tempted to mention Seaspan (SSW) Preferred shares (SSW-PRG), but they'd asked for energy stocks, not efficient transportation.  You can read about Seaspan Preferred in my recent update as well.  

My picks in January had been Pattern Energy Group (PEGI), and Hannon Armstrong (HASI.) Both have gained significantly (17% and 22%) since then, and so they're still top holdings, but not the most likely to make further large gains in the near term.
     
I picked General Cable instead.  It's a bit of a stretch to call it an energy stock, but at least the connection between the manufacturer of electric and communication cables and the energy sector is obvious.  Given more than 20 minutes, I might have picked something else, or just stuck with the two I'm most enthusiastic about.  

Martin Soong wanted to talk about ETFs, we did not talk about Covanta or General Cable at all.

MS: What about clean energy ETFs?  I've looked at six that are up about 10% for the year.

TK: ETFs are okay if you're unwilling to pick stocks, but clean energy is such a new sector, pricing is not yet efficient, and there is a lot of room for stock pickers to get an edge.

MS: But the ETFs are up 10% for the year.  Why not just invest in those?

TK: My Green Global Equity Income Portfolio is up 17%.

MS: I have to admit, that's good performance.

And he ended the interview.

Unfortunately, I had misstated my performance.  I don't spend much time thinking about past performance: Future performance and how I can improve it is much more interesting.  For the record, my Green Global Equity Income Portfolio (GGEIP) was up 13.5% for the year to date.... not as good as I'd thought, but still ahead of the alternative energy ETFs he was looking at.  

Despite my mistake on my track record, I stick to my assertion that clean energy remains a stock picker's market.  Until clean energy investing becomes main stream, there will be a lot of room for stock pickers like me to beat the indexes.  Perhaps I should have mentioned that GGEIP was  up 30.5% in 2016, although I achieved that using options and other strategies not available in clean energy ETFs, not just stock picking.

DISCLOSURE: Tom Konrad has long positions in ABY, CVA, BGC, PEGI, HASI, and SSW-PRG, and own puts on SSW (an effective short position.)

          Price controlled drugs fast disappearing from shelves of retailers after announcement of new pharma policy   
 in what will prove to actually be dampener to actually the efforts of the govt. to actually bridle the costs of essential medication throughout the new pharmaceutical pricing policy, additional and additional medication nowadays beneath price management are going away from stocks along with the retail chemist retailers.

even just before the implementation of one's policy which can expand the ambit of price management, several away from the 74 medication currently beneath price management are definitely not on the market within the whole markets, according to actually a cross-check in several retailers in delhi and uttar pradesh.

betamenthasone, metronidazole, salbutamol, cefotaxime, dexamethasone, pentazocine, furazolidone, framycentin, and pentoxyfylline are among those medication not on the market along with the chemist retailers as much corporations have withdrawn direct from manufacturing of those medication inside the grounds of non-profitability.

according to actually those in provide chain, away from the 74 molecules, not even ten medication are on the market within the whole markets currently, forcing the customers to actually take expensive alternate medicines. if ten tablets of salbutamol were on the market for rs. 1. eighty earlier, currently the customers have to actually pay not less than rs. 6 to purchase its various medication.

“some corporations had long back stopped manufacturing several of those scheduled medication following the price management. currently additional medicines are added of this list of non-available medication. now we have demands of your medication, however i don’t get provide direct from corporations, ” a delhi-based whole-sale dealer of medication got wind.

apart direct from profitability issue that prevents corporations from manufacturing them, the doctors are additionally reportedly not pushing these medication within the whole absence of sufficient commissions. this has led to actually decline in provide, discouraging the retailers to actually stock them.

if it's an indicator, several additional essential medication will just be away from the market as well as their production will forestall to actually circumvent the expanded price management as the main new pharma policy, according to actually public health activists. there are not any sufficient safeguards within the whole policy to actually check this trend as the govt. can not force the corporations to actually manufacture a specific formulation, they will purpose out.

          15 Hikes Around Atlanta   

ATLANTA
Reynolds Nature Preserve

Big Trees Forest Preserve Trail
Created by the Southeast Land Preservation Trust in partnership with Fulton County and the state of Georgia, The John Ripley Forbes Big Trees Forest Preserve is home to the Big Trees Forest Preserve Trail. At 1.2 miles, this 45 minute trek takes hikers along a river and is suitable for all skill levels. Most visitors enjoy hiking and walking, but many have enjoyed nature trips and birding in the area. The trail is accessible throughout the year and is dog friendly as long as they’re on a leash.
For more information, visit: http://www.bigtreesforest.com/

Island Ford Trail
This trail takes hikers on an exploration of the floodplain and watershed of the Chattahoochee River in the vicinity of Island Ford, one of the river’s first commonly used fords. For those who are not familiar with this type of ford, it refers to one of two options that settlers had when crossing the Chattahoochee River: you could use of the ferries, which cost money, or one of the free fords, where animals, carts, and people made their way across a high, relatively flat area in the river. This practice could be dangerous due to high, fast-flowing water that could easily drag your cart or passengers downstream. Today, it’s almost impossible to see the former ford, but the scenery of the river provides spectacular views of lush plant growth. This hike is considered fairly easy, but there are a few climbs to get to the Chattahoochee River watershed that could be considered challenging.  
For more information, click here.

Midtown Romp

Who says all hikes have to be in the woods? The Midtown Romp offers hikers a bit more concrete as they trek through 6.3 miles of downtown Atlanta. Starting on Atlanta’s first road, Peachtree Street, hikers will pass through Piedmont Park, around several famous Atlanta landmarks, and through the campus of Georgia Tech before returning back to the start of the trail on Peachtree Street. A moderate difficulty level, heavy traffic, and full sun make this an excursion for those who don’t consider themselves beginners. Most hikers usually spend about 7 hours on this hike.

Reynolds Nature Preserve
Built on donated land from William Huie Reynolds, a Clayton County judge, this just under two mile hike offers hikers multiple lakeshore views, forested wetlands, and a 17-foot-circumference white oak that was felled by a storm. This trail is considered easy to complete and most hikers spend about one hour on the hike going through mostly shaded areas, except for parts in the vicinity of the lakes and dam, which are sometimes fully exposed. Visitors can see smaller animals on the trail, like turtles, tortoises, and a family of beavers.

NORTHWEST ATLANTA
Chattahoochee Nature Center

Iron Hill Loop
Visitors of the Red Top Mountain State Park are offered a reminder of Georgia’s iron heritage with the Iron Hill Loop, an easy, 3.8 mile loop configuration that gives hikers stunning views of lakeshore and historic open-pit iron mines. The trail is open daily, year-round, but requires a $5 park fee for entry. Partial shade and some areas of full sun combined with a slightly varying incline gravel trail make this two hour hike the perfect way to spend a Saturday in the fall.

For more information, click here.

Pickett’s Mill Trail
The Picket’s Mill Trail allows hikers to explore the site of a decisive Confederate victory during the Atlanta campaign of the Civil War. Travel down the path that Union soldiers took as they advanced down a valley toward the Confederate Army’s right flank. At 3.1 miles with several inclines, this trail offers a moderate difficulty level which could be a challenge for beginner hikers. Take in creekside settings with cascades and portions of the Pickett’s Mill Battlefield on this two hour trek on a mix of gravel and historic roads.
For more information, click here.

Chattahoochee Nature Center Trail
The Chattahoochee Nature Center Trail allows hikers to explore the Chattahoochee River above Bull Sluice before climbing into the watershed. This hike is unique because it offers a deep-woods experience while in an in-town setting, The hike ends at the Discovery Center, which allows visitors to learn about the natural world. The 2.5 mile loop takes hikers along the Chattahoochee, several ponds, the Chattahoochee watershed, and offers great views of Bull Sluice. An easy hike to complete under two hours, the Chattahoochee Nature Center Trail is suitable for all ages and is open Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sunday noon-5 p.m.; closed Thanksgiving and December 24-25. Admission for the trail is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, $5 for children ages 3-12, and free for children ages 2 and under. Sadly, your four legged friends will have to sit this one out as no pets are allowed.

Wildcat Creek Trail
Following along Wildcat Creek, the Wildcat Creek Trail climbs into the Amicalola Creed watershed through remote areas where it is possible to see a wide range of wildlife. Part of the Dawson Forest Wildlife Management Area, the trail is technically under the control of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and was developed by the nonprofit Mountain Stewards who have developed the multiple-trail complex in the area. Difficulty on this trail varies from easy to moderate with the trail being mostly shaded throughout. Rather than a loop configuration, this trail is an out-and-back trail, meaning once you reach the end, you’ll turn back and exit where you started; the trail is 3 miles roundtrip. A Georgia Outdoor Recreation Pass is required for visitors 16-64 (buy online at georgiawildlife.com/recreational-licenses; transaction fees may apply.)
For more information, click here. 

NORTHEAST ATLANTA
Stone Mountain Walk Up Trail

Amicalola Falls Loop
On this 2.8 mile loop, hikers will explore the watershed of the Amicalola Creek in the area of Amicalola Falls. In an impressive 729 feet in a series of free falls and large cascades, Amicalola Falls is clearly the focus of the trail. Hikers can experience full sun at the falls and visitor center as well as along the upper third of the East Ridge, but the remainder of the loop is shaded. Visitors should expect heavier traffic during peak leaf season as well as a $5 state park fee for entry. The park is open daily, year-round from 7 a.m. – sunset. The loop is considered to be difficult due to steady moderate climbs and several sets of stairs. Pro Tip: the best views happen after a winter rain when the river is high and there is no tree cover.
For more information, visit: https://gastateparks.org/af-trails

DeSoto Falls Trail
Combining two wonderful out-and-back trails, the DeSoto Falls Trail offers a 2.5 mile round-trip stroll with views of waterfalls and a babbling brook in the North Georgia mountains. Cost of admission to the park is a $3 day-use fee and the park is open daily, year-round, 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. The trail is considered easy, but the climb to Lower Falls is slightly more difficult. Visitors can expect full shade throughout the trek and can enjoy views of mountain streams and two waterfalls on this hike that normally takes hikers a little under one and a half hours to complete.

Stone Mountain Walk Up Trail
On this trail, hikers travel on solid granite and through boulder fields to the top of Stone Mountain, nearly 780 feet above the surrounding Georgia Piedmont. By climbing up the Walk Up Trail, you can take in 200 years of American history, 400 years of European history, thousands of years of American Indian history, and millions of years of geological history. Don’t expect any sort of shaded path, because this trail is in full sun for the duration of the hike. This out-and-back trail finishes at 2.4 miles round-trip and have proven to be difficult for most hikers, but once you make it to the top of the mountain, there is a small loop with a 360-degree vista of the Georgia Piedmont that includes long-distance views of central Atlanta, Buckhead, and Decatur. Hikers usually spend about 2 hours completing this hike. Admission pricing information can be found at stonemountainpark.com; and the park is open daily, year-round 6 a.m. – midnight. Pro Tip: stick around for the laser show that Stone Mountain offers starting in April and lasting through mid-October.

Indian Seats Trail
Named for a Cherokee chief who lived near the headwaters of Vickery Creek, Sawnee Mountain has long been rumored to hold the chief’s gold as well as the final resting place of his body. No one has found the latter, but the gold was discovered in 1895 but mined unsuccessfully. This trail takes hikers to the top of Sawnee Mountain to provide beautiful, long-distance views of the Blue Ridge Mountains on a 3.75 mile loop trail. When hiked clockwise, the trail is moderately difficult, but if you’re looking for more of a challenge, consider going counterclockwise to add some extreme difficulty. The park is open daily, year-round, 8 a.m. – sunset and hiking admission is free.

Very interesting, a glimpse into the minds of their marketing people... Pricing is important and I think it would be extremely useful to publish a list of 'indicative' or 'base' pricing for the main UK system suppliers, basically how much does it cost to trial a one million pound scale project, I have found that contacting them directly can be like an inqusition and that just makes me think that the more they know about me, then the more they can stretch their pricing out - I never buy anything that doesn't show a price... A comparison of main features would be useful too, desktop / tablet / phone, usability, main design / site specific features - I am not the least bit interested in HR features or QA (not QC) features - I have that, its part of being in business - but teamcentric features and system 'owner' features are important, ease of use, training required, local terminology and UK applicable features - remember the Aconex access to the Australian construction jobs market and materials suppliers... I love your annual revenue/profitability graphs, it helps to focus on the winners and losers, but actual functionality doesn't show in a financial graph, so is the revenue indicative of the features or those marketing blokes...

          Non Paying Tennants and The Da Vinci Code   

I knew it couldn’t be the very reasonably priced painter and decorator that we had hired to paint the showroom, because he’d finished, and had been paid up, but I had definitely heard a noise coming from the workshop, I was on my own in the garage and as I went to investigate I knew it could only be someone that shouldn’t be there, as I got to the mottled glass door which divided the showroom from the workshop I could see their outline, I could also see they were dragging a large toolbox.

The toolbox was very heavy and must have had a square wheel as it wasn’t exactly gliding across the workshop floor, I had the keys to the front door in my pocket so I ran to it, put the lock on it so he couldn't get out and told the intruder to “pack it in” and go home, I knew him, and although he was an intruder it was debatable whether he was stealing the tool box as I suppose rightfully it was his, but I was holding it and some other stuff hostage till he paid us what he owed.

Looking back on the incident now, I am sure I could have handled it a heck of a lot better. It had all started a few weeks earlier, when I noticed a stranger repairing a car in the unit we were renting out next door,  I asked him where the regular guy was, expecting him to say that he was ill, and he was standing in for him, but it was like I had injected the guy with Sodium Pentathol (the truth drug) he gave me chapter and verse, his reply was “Oh he’s had enough of this place, he won’t be coming in any more, after he picks up his stuff tonight, “Over my dead body he will, and you can clear off and tell him that he better come and see me, Urgently! , he never came to see me, so  I made sure he couldn’t come back that night after I had gone home by changing the locks on the workshop and parking a van sideways across and about ¼ in from the door.

The guy he was referring to was our tenant and he was about 3 months behind with his rent. After the gypsy squatters ( separate blog http://bccars.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/my-big-fat-gypsy-squatters.html) we had decided it would be better if the buildings were occupied and then it wouldn’t be as tempting for, Gypsies, Kids, Vandals and the local little Banksy’s (for Banksy substitute “Bastards” or Street Artists if you prefer ). We had put an advert in the local paper and we were inundated with enquiries, mostly from Fast Food franchises, but if it was turned into a  Kentucky Fried Chicken shop, I would have weighed about 50 stones and I wouldn’t have lived to see 25.

The unit next door was equipped with a ramp and a rolling road brake tester, it was a great little workshop and it would have been a shame to rip it all out and replace the stuff with deep fat fryers. Originally when it was built it had been an MOT station but the regulations had changed, and in order to comply now it would need to be extended about 10 feet, the previous owners of the building (Esso) couldn’t do that as it backed directly on to the boundary line of our land, and we didn’t want to sell any of it to them as we were short of space already. Opening an MOT station would have been the next logical step to expand our business, but that would have meant taking on more staff, we'd had enough of the ones we'd got already, ( http://bccars.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/light-fingered-staff-page-3-models-and.html) we didn’t want any more, so our only option was to rent it out.

We had done a deal with Esso to buy the place and in return for a substantial discount we had promised to use their products in future. Esso products were quite a lot dearer than our existing supplier, but buying the old Petrol station was the only way we could expand our used car display so it could be seen along the main road, we only wanted the frontage, and not the buildings. The person we would eventually rent the garage to would have to agree to use Esso products and not set up in competition with our workshop. One of the enquiries stood out from the rest and he sounded ideal, when we met him he seemed like a good lad, and after talking to him we agreed a deal.

Even in those days it was hard to get a new business off the ground so as part of the deal we gave him a few weeks free rent so that he could get sorted out, do a bit of advertising and get some work and some money rolling in, we also gave him a  reduced rent for the first 6 months until he got established, he assured us that he already had a few regular customers so meeting the rent wouldn’t be a problem, but soon he began to spend more time in our workshop than his, he was taking on jobs that were beyond his abilities, and his tools, it was obvious that he wasn’t a mechanic he was a simple oil, filter and service guy and that was it.

I tried to keep a watchful eye on him and to me he seemed to spend more time messing about on his computer than he did fixing cars, Computers were a relatively new thing then, I really wanted one and we didn’t have one so I was very jealous, he was far better set up than us on the automated billing side but he struggled to do the actual repair work, he was always asking our mechanics for help, or if he could borrow tools, I didn't mind this so much, but he never brought them back so when we needed them we had to go searching for them and wasting more time, we were a Main Dealer and our mechanics had to fill in time sheets, each of our job cards had to be costed manually using the tear off front copy, and any warranty jobs would fail the manufacturers audit if the mechanics time wasn’t allocated on the back, it soon became clear that our services and repairs were starting to take longer, and our sold man hours were going downwards because our mechanics were too busy helping the guy next door to do his work, rather than doing theirs.

We used a manufacturers recommended service menu pricing book so the cost of our mechanics extra times were never passed on to the customers, but as a business we were losing out, I made a mental note of the times our mechanics spent next door and if I had charged our tenant for our labour costs as well as his rent, his business wouldn’t be able to stand it. Our overheads had increased but we persevered hoping that we would be paid back in the long run by having a trusted tenant next door for a while to come. One of the things that made us choose him was that he had told us he didn’t have to rely on servicing work as he made a lot of money by sourcing non running cars, then fixing them up when his workshop was quiet and selling them for a good profit, so long as he didn't start buying the same sort of cars that we sold, that wouldn't be a problem to us.

A couple of months into our rental agreement, in my opinion he had gotten too ambitious and made a huge error in judgement, he bought 2 cars exactly the same, it was a model that looked great but they were notoriously temperamental, unreliable and difficult to keep running at the best of times, let alone fix them when they broke down. He had bought them cheap, one of the 2 cars was a non runner supposedly it had a duff engine, but a very tidy body and interior, the other one had a good engine but was a pretty rough car, his idea was to swap the engines, retail the good car and sell the other for parts, in theory it sounded like a good plan but unbeknown to us he had used all his money and taken a gamble that he would be able to fix the car and sell it before the end of the month, if he didn’t he wouldn’t be able to pay his rent.

He swapped the engines but then he couldn’t get the good engine to start either, and he was left with 2 un saleable none running cars. Looking back I think desperation then set in and when you’re desperate you don’t think straight. I tried to help him by suggesting that I didn’t think it was a fault with the engine, and that he should be looking for an electrical problem instead, my reasoning was that it had worked in the donor car so it was more logical that the engine wouldn’t start now after it had been transplanted in to this car due to a fault with the Electronic Control Unit, or even simpler it could just have been a problem with the alarm immobiliser function. I did try to soften the blow that he had probably done all this work for nothing, by pointing out that if he could find the problem he would then have 2 cars with good engines and would make a lot more money.

He had jumped to the conclusion that the engine was faulty what he should have done was eliminated all the other possibilities first before concluding that it was the most expensive problem, the engine, but he couldn’t see the wood for the trees. I had learned the hard way, when I was younger if there was a right way and a wrong way to do something, let’s just say that I would have needed at least 2 goes. He chose to ignore my advice, and more or less told me to mind my own business, luckily for him up to that point I hadn’t been doing or we would have evicted him already.

He started taking the good engine to pieces looking for a problem that didn't exist, but he managed to make one and it never ran again! - he devoted all his time trying to fix it, and he stopped taking on paying work, he was unable to pay his rent for the next 2 months and another payment was coming due in a couple of days, but rather than tell us that he had decided to pack in, he was going to do a “Moonlight” (disappear overnight) instead, he would have succeeded if his “friend” hadn't just cocked him up and spilled the beans. I was very annoyed, because I thought we had done everything we possibly could do to help him succeed; he had let us down badly. I was still fairly new to the motor trade and didn’t realise that soon, being let down badly was to become the norm.

Our tenant didn’t come to see us to try and sort out an amicable solution, but his girlfriend rang and left me a number to call in case of emergencies, she never explained what emergencies she could foresee, but she was right I would be needing it a couple of weeks later. We had decided to try to rent the workshop out again, this time instead of putting an advert in the local paper we put a to let sign on the unit, we tidied it up and moved our old tenants tools into our workshop.Incidentally it was doubtful that we would ever get our money back as he could have gone out and bought all his tools brand new 10 times over with the amount he owed us, but God loves a tryer!

So back to my story, I had stopped him getting out with his tool box but he had started taking smaller items out through the side door and through the showroom, he couldn't have got his tool box through there as the doorway was too small, and so were the gaps between the cars. I threatened to call the police if he didn’t leave, he took no notice so I called our local community Bobby, who I knew well, he used to call in for brews and a chat, and he was a good guy, he would apply common sense to the matter instead of the letter of the law, I knew he would just warn our tenant and take no further action, I wasn’t looking to get him arrested, but I wouldn’t be able to face my Boss and tell him that I had just let him come in and take the stuff without at least trying to stop him.

I needed to detain him till our community Bobby showed up, so when he went back into the workshop I got my keys out to lock him in, that’s when to my horror I discovered why the guy we had hired to paint the showroom was so reasonable, the man was a complete idiot, for reason’s best known to himself he had blocked the keyhole in the workshop door up with filler, sanded it down and painted over it, I couldn’t even see where the key hole used to be, let alone lock the door from the outside!.

Our tenant was a lot bigger than me and I certainly didn’t want to get into a fight, but I can be a little bit stubborn and Gung Ho, more to the point I didn’t want him to get one over on me either, so I took a deep breath, stepped into the workshop, locked the door behind me, and prepared myself for a scuffle.  It occurred to me that I didn't want a big guy routing through my trouser pockets either, so I made sure that he saw me put the keys in my jacket, just in case he decided he was going to forcefully retrieve them. There was no talking to him, so I dialled the emergency number on our “state of the art” cordless telephone and spoke to his girlfriend who I hoped would make him see sense, I told her what was happening and then passed the phone to our tenant he just ended the call without speaking and put the phone down, he was a man on a mission, but so was I.

I had delayed him long enough for the Community Bobby to get to the garage, I unlocked the workshop door and let him in, while I was explaining what had happened, our tenant calmly walked past us carrying more of his tools out to his car.

The policeman followed him outside and stood in our doorway, warning the tenant that if he tried to set foot on our premises again he would be arrested for “Breach of the peace” I thought that would be the end of the matter but it wasn’t, he tried to gain entrance by pushing past the Police Officer, knocking his helmet off in the process, saying “You Don’t Understand” he was right, our community Officer didn’t, he picked his helmet up dusted it off, said  “right, so that’s assaulting a Policeman and Breach of the Peace! You’re nicked mate!, then he got his handcuffs out. As I said our local Bobby was one of the good guys, and he just put our tenant in a cell till he calmed down, read the riot act to him about what would happen if he did it again and let him go.

I had been wondering what exactly he had meant by ”You don’t understand”  it couldn’t have been any simpler, he wanted his tools back, and we wouldn’t give him them till he paid the rent he owed us, I understood perfectly, or so I thought.  A few weeks later I was on my own in the garage, it was only about 11 am on a Sunday morning and we didn’t officially open till 12, I would have been out late the night before, as I always was back then, so I was sat in my office, feet up on the desk, reclined on my chair, eyes shut and more than likely I was in the land of nod,  when suddenly my office door was yanked open with such force that one of the panels in the suspended ceiling was sucked out, I dropped my feet to the floor and sprang forward.

There were 2 rather menacing figures stood in the door way, well actually the first menacing figure was so big he filled the doorway, so the other menacing figure had to stand behind him, there was no way to get out of the office other than going through them, and that wasn’t going to happen. If they had only come a bit earlier I would have stood a chance, I always went clay pigeon shooting on Sunday Morning before I went to work, Just 20 minutes before, and I would have been awake and in the middle of cleaning my shotgun, I’d like to see them barge in when I was holding a Twelve Bore, but unfortunately my Browning was now, cleaned, oiled and dismantled in its case and safely packed away under my desk.

The big guy pointed at me and said “You’re the one that reported “######” to Five O?”  I deduced  that he was from another country, firstly because he had a strong accent, secondly because it was several years after Hawaii Five O starring Jack Lord had finished and 30 years before the new series where the character of one of McGarrets original Big fat Male Hawaiian sidekicks "Kono Kalakaua"would then be played by a very thin woman, also here in England we don’t call the police 5 O so that was a bit of a giveaway too, sheepishly, and trying not to wet myself,  I replied “erm yes that would be me, and added rather apologetically  “but I only did it because he owed us money”, He looked and spoke like Bad Attitude Baracus  (Mr T) out of the tv program The A Team “You  got something of mine” he said, I expected him to say “Fool” at the end of his sentence like Mr T did, but he didn’t need to, I already knew I was a “Fool”,  and our tenant was right, I didn’t understand, there was more at stake than a few dirty old tools, he had been hiding something from me and I wasn’t in possession of all the facts.


I asked Mr T what it was, that we had?  Not wanting to get beaten up, I said that if the item belonged to him and not our tenant I would be more than happy to retrieve it for him if I could. Mr T wouldn’t tell me what it was, which in my experience also meant that what I didn’t know couldn’t kill me, so I asked him how big it was? He moved his arms forward and made 2 L shapes with his thumb and forefinger, I didn’t know whether he meant he was going to strangle me if I didn’t stop asking questions or he was making  a square, if it was the latter I judged that the sides would have been about 6 to 8 inches, but I’m a guy so realistically it could have been quite a bit smaller.

His answer aroused my curiosity, so pushing my luck a little and half expecting to be throttled, i said OK, let me ask you another question, if  this thing of yours that I’m supposed to have is only that big, and is important enough for you and you’re mate to come charging in here trying to put the shits up me (and succeeding I might add), why didn’t “####” (our tenant) retrieve it when he had the chance, instead of trying to take a massive tool box, he could easily have got it, and been in and out of the workshop without me even knowing, and for that matter why on earth did he get himself arrested? they both looked puzzled and I could almost hear their brains working, they started to mutter to each other, I heard one of them say “he has got a point” then they both turned and walked out of the showroom. I followed them out and watched them jump into a Blue Jaguar, and drive off. In the back seat of the car, looking more than a little bit scared was our tenant.

I called the Police and reported the incident but heard nothing more, I assumed that our tenant had tried to buy himself some time by telling his “friends” that I had their item, hoping they’d come looking for me, while he packed his bags and caught a plane to Timbuktu,  his plan had backfired when they brought him along for the ride, I did wonder why he sat waiting for them in their Jaguar though rather than taking the opportunity to scarper, perhaps he'd repaired the door locking on the car and now it wouldn't open or he had been handcuffed again, who knows perhaps it was part of a bluff to show he thought he had nothing to fear from them be cause he was innocent.

That night making sure that I wasn’t being followed I went to the place where we had stored the confiscated equipment, I was going to search very carefully and very thoroughly through every item until I was 100% certain that there was nothing illegal, the last thing I wanted was to get “caught in possession “ of something that I would have a difficult time explaining to cops, I found nothing, the only thing I had left to search was his tool box which was locked, it wasn’t exactly insurance approved and after a few minutes messing about I had opened it, in one of the drawers was a box of 5 1/4 “ floppy discs, perhaps this was what Mr T was meaning, if it was, our tenant obviously wasn’t the brains behind whatever scheme they had going on, and he must have forgotten his key when he came to retrieve the discs, so he was forced to try and liberate his whole tool box. 
 
I never saw B A or his partner again, and I never found out exactly what happened to our tenant,  I felt safer not knowing, but I can tell you he is OK, It’s possible that he either remembered where he’d put their contraband, had kept backup copies elsewhere, or came up with another explanation and an acceptable repayment plan,  In reality I think they were perhaps involved in nothing more sinister than trying to collaborate to make one of the first computer games and they'd had a fallout.

It’s also possible that when he was f####g about on his computer instead of repairing cars and making money to pay his rent, he had inadvertently solved the Da Vinci Code and B A was actually a member of Opus Dei who’d come looking for the answer, either way he’s still alive as I saw him in PC World a couple of years later buying a new computer.

Five 0,  erm sorry,  the Police came back to interview me again, but it was only to rule out B A Baracus as a suspect from a shooting that had occurred in a local pub, the witnesses who saw the shooters getaway car had described it as a dark blue saloon car, they had got a partial plate number and a description of the Hit man, the Police were investigating the possibility that there was a link between the 2 incidents,  I eliminated B A from their enquiries, I had gotten the complete registration number of his Jag when he was driving off our forecourt, and that wasn’t the getaway car, the description of the shooter was as far from B A as it was possible to be!, but it did make me wonder was it a square 5 1/4 inch floppy disc that B A was making with his thumbs and forefingers, or could it possibly have been two guns!

Hopefully I will never know!
Barrie Crampton



          Senate screws the little guy: the cram down may be dead for now   

After spending millions on lobbying (despite the lobbying ban in place for banks who received bailout money), it looks like the banking industry has spent and lied its way into delaying Senator Durbin's cram down bill.

I am shocked, dismayed, and disgusted that in Washington, it's business as usual when it comes to regular people getting a break against powerful interests who throw money (including taxpayer money) at politicians.

According to today's Wall Street Journal, Senate Republicans are continuing their campaign of "no" and walking in lock step to kowtow to the banking industry. The end result: banks probably get the FDIC relief they want, but regular people will not get the right to have their upside down home loan treated the same way any other upside down loan is already treated.

In my opinion, this loophole should have been closed long ago, for some very good reasons.

First, the home lending market is vastly different from what it was 30 years ago, when this special exception was written into the Bankruptcy Code. The evolution of the home lending industry is such that lenders do not need any special protection to protect the availability and affordability of home loans. Lenders and their lackeys in the Congress have continued to tell the lie that cram downs would make home loans so much more expensive than they are currently, and this tactic appears to have worked.

The second reason to get rid of this special set-aside for these loans is that it will not result in increased costs for borrowers. How do we know this? Well, as mentioned above, most loans are already subject to cramdowns, including many different types of home loans - for example, on second homes, investment properties, and multiunit properties where an owner occupies one of the units. If cram down opponents were telling the truth, then we would see pricing and availaility differences between the loan products that could be crammed down, and owner-occupied loans, which are not. According to an audit of nearly 300 different loan products offered by several large lenders (just google "Adam Levitin" "cram down" and you can read the paper and judge for yourself), there is no difference in pricing or availability based on whether a loan can be crammed down. The bottom line is that bond rates and competition determine home loan availability and pricing, not back end risk factors. For example, in this very tough economy, home loan rates are nearly half what they were in the heyday of a few years ago. Why? Because benchmark interest rates like Treasury bond rates and the Prime Rate are much lower now than they were then.

The third reason to do this is that, unlike so many other measures in Washington, this one will not cost taxpayers a penny, because the bankruptcy system pays for itself through its fee structure.

The fourth reason for a cram down is that lenders actually make more money on a cramdown when compared to foreclosing on, holding, and reselling a home whose value is less than the loan balance. For a California property, a lender will spend an average of $70,000 in hard dollars for every foreclosure. The lender's total losses (lost interest income, etc.) are estimated at nearly $150,000 per house foreclosed. This problem is compounded in a declining market, such as the one we are in now.Then there's the drag effect of REOs on housing prices and local property tax bases, which harms already hurting local communities.

And by the way, where do you think the banks look to recoup their bad loan losses? If banks are right about cramdowns increasing loan costs, then it stands to reason that foreclosure losses are already being passed on to borrowers. If they are, then why are loans cheaper now than they were when the housing boom was happening, as noted above?

But the most important reason for Congress to do this is simple: it's the right thing to do for millions of American families who are saddled with houses they cannot sell to pay off their loans because of the market, and loans that contain ridiculous terms when compared to reality.

Banks and their kept politicians may have stolen a real opportunity to fix a root cause of the current world economic crisis. People are very angry about the state of things. Unfortunately, this shameful act of greed at the expense of common sense and fairness will likely extend what now appears (despite the lip service from pundits) like it's turning into a depression - maybe not on Wall Street, but certainly on Main Street.

 


          More proof that cram downs will not make mortgages cost more   

So the bankruptcy cram down bill is currently stuck in the Senate. Opponents (read: the banking industry, and a few "let them eat cake" conservatives) continue to tell the lie that cram downs in bankruptcy will make home loans so much more expensive than they would be otherwise. I think they hope that if they tell the lie enough times, it will be accepted as the truth.

These people are full of it. Make no mistake, it is a bald faced lie to claim that bankruptcy cram downs will cause significant increases in home loan costs, or decrease availability.

Recently, I posted about Professor Adam Levitin's analysis of cram down's actual effects on mortgage costs and availability. After reading his entire paper, it seems I left out some very important information. My prior post talked about the historical period when some parts of the country allowed cram downs and others did not. But there is even more evidence that cram downs do not affect loan pricing and availability.

Professor Levitin also did an exhaustive comparison between owner occupied single family residence loans (that cannot be crammed down under current law), with other loan types: rental properties, vacation homes, and multi-family dwellings where one unit is owner-occupied (all of which can be crammed down under current bankruptcy law).

Now, if the lending industry's claims about cram downs is true, one would expect to find two-tiered pricing: lower pricing for owner occupied SFR loans, and higher pricing for the other property types, since the other types are subject to cram down risk.

The actual result? For the nearly 300 loan quotes that Professor Levitin received from four major lenders, pricing for owner occupied SFRs was exactly the same as for vacation homes, and at least one of the multi-family property types. This is in spite of the fact that vacation home and multi-family loans are already subject to cram down.

In short, there is no real risk of increased loss to a lender in a cram down. The reason is actually quite simple: lenders usually make more money even on a cram down modified loan than they would in a foreclosure. Here's why: in a cram down, the principal balance is cut to the current market value of the property. The borrower has to make loan payments on that principal balance, at an interest rate that equals current market rates for a conforming fixed-rate loan, plus a "risk premium" of 1 to 3 percent, to protect the lender. At current rates, the lender will receive 5.5% to as much as 8%. By contrast, if the lender is allowed to foreclose, they have to spend about $70,000 to take back the property, hold it, get it ready for resale, and resell it. This means that the most a lender can hope to recover in a foreclosure is current market value less about $70,000 - and that's assuming the market value of the property holds steady. All the while, the lender is collecting no interest payments.

          Artificial Sweeteners Market to Witness Durable Growth During the Forecast Period 2014-2020   

Future Market Insights has announced the addition of the “Artificial Sweeteners Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2014 - 2020" report to their offering.

Valley Cottage, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/28/2017 -- Artificial sweeteners are synthetically produced sugar substitutes that are sweet in taste. Some of the major artificial sweeteners include aspartame, acesulfame-K, monosodium glutamate, saccharin and sodium benzoate. Second generation artificial sweeteners include sucralose and neotame. Artificial sweeteners are also called "intense sweeteners" as they are many times sweeter than the regular sugar. For instance, neotame is 8000 times sweeter than sugar. These are potential alternatives to sugar as they add virtually no calories to one's diet and help maintain low blood sugar levels. Additional advantages reflect in pricing and labelling.

Artificial sweeteners are widely used in processed foods, like baked goods, powdered drink mixes, candies, puddings, jams and jellies, dairy products and a variety of other foods and beverages. The market can be segmented based on application such as bakery items, dairy products, confectionery, beverages and others. Regionally, the market can be segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America (the U.S., Canada and Mexico), Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East & North Africa and RoW (Rest of the World including Latin America and South Africa). The market can also be segmented on the basis of distribution channels, like supermarkets and hypermarkets, departmental stores, mom-and-pop shops, convenience stores and others.

The demand for low-calorie food items in various verticals of food service industry has triggered the growth of artificial sweeteners market. The demand for artificial sweeteners also witnessed growth in the past few decades due to growing health issues like diabetes and obesity. Till 2012, aspartame enjoyed the largest market share as compared to other artificial sweeteners. However, sucralose has surpassed its demand in recent times, globally. Sucralose-based sweeteners are expected to dominate the market space due to their natural profile. New product launches with natural ingredients would fuel the demand for the same. Demand for aspartame in diet soft drinks would continue, perhaps its demand is expected to decline in tabletop market in the forecast period. Application-wise, demand for artificial sweeteners for diet soft drinks is expected to decline. Also, tabletop would emerge as the largest category leaving behind confections and the candy market by 2020.

Researchers are continuously working on the efficacy of artificial sweeteners and found out that they can potentially disrupt the body's ability to regulate blood sugar, which in turn can trigger diabetes. Artificial sweeteners, viz. Sweet'N Low (saccharin), NutraSweet and Equal (aspartame) account for a major market share in the U.S. They have reported a continuous decline in their market share from 2010 to 2013, which shows that the market for artificial sweeteners is shrinking in North America. However, the market for artificial sweeteners is growing moderately in emerging economies. In May 2009, Tate & Lyle (T&L) had stopped the production of aspartame in its manufacturing site at McIntosh, Alabama to concentrate its production in their state-of-the-art plant located in Singapore.

There is a growing trend towards blending two or more artificial sweeteners to mask their bitter or metallic taste in products. For instance, companies blend sucralose and neotame to enhance the quality of the final product. With extended government approvals for the use of artificial sweeteners in different regions and applications have significantly boosted the demand for these products. In August 1999, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) had approved the use of aspartame as a general purpose sweetener and expansion of categories in the range of food & beverage applications. The European Union made a new amendment in December 2009 to use neotame as a sweetener across Europe.

          ISPs Are No Longer Even Bothering To Provide Bogus Excuses For Their Expanding Use Of Bullshit Usage Caps   

A few years ago, large ISPs began taking advantage of a lack of competition in the broadband market by imposing arbitrary, unnecessary and confusing usage caps and overage fees. Initially, these companies tried to claim that this was necessary to manage congestion on their networks. As data emerged indicating that this claim was bullshit, large ISPs were ultimately forced to acknowledge as much and back away from the claim.

Shortly after that, ISPs instead began claiming that these glorified price hikes were necessary as a simple matter of "fairness," and the industry narrative-du-jour became that it only made sense that heavier users should pay more money for broadband.

This excuse was bullshit too; Americans already pay some of the highest prices for broadband of any developed nation under the flat-rate pricing model, which any large ISP earnings report will show you is perfectly profitable. And if "excessive consumption" really was a problem, it was a problem caused solely by a small number of users that could easily be shoved toward business-class tiers. It didn't require saddling everyone with confusing and expensive surcharges.

These days, after being hammered for years for bogus justifications, large ISPs no longer even provide a reason for these rate hikes. Take Cox Communications for example. The company has quietly announced it would be expanding usage caps into several new markets, charging users $10 per each additional 50 GB of data users consumed over a one terabyte limit. The e-mail being sent to users, which is getting widespread attention on Reddit, doesn't even really bother to offer a justification for the price hike:

Several news outlets and reporters (including myself) tried to get Cox to explain its reasoning for the hikes, and the company simply refused. Of course there's a simple reason ISPs no longer try to justify this behavior: they don't have to.

Consumers in captive markets can't vote with their wallets, and cable providers are slowly but quietly enjoying a growing monopoly over next-gen broadband as telcos refuse to keep pace and upgrade their DSL networks. The end result is the ability for these companies to impose massive new rate hikes that not only result in users paying more money for the same-exact service, but help incumbent ISPs penalize the use of would-be streaming competitors. Zero rating an ISPs own services -- while still penalizing competitors like Netflix -- adds another layer of anti-competitive adventure to the proceedings.

But fear not! Cox did tell some news outlets that the company would soon be letting users avoid the caps and subscribe to an unmetered connection, for an added, unspecified cost. In other words: if you don't want to pay us more money for the exact same service, please pay us more money for the exact same service. Why? Because we can, and regulators couldn't care less.

Whenever the conversation about broadband caps pops up, many people quickly get bogged down in debate over whether or not a terabyte is fair, losing sight of the fact that these limits are utterly unnecessary, and we wouldn't be seeing them at all in a healthy, competitive market. What's deemed "fair" today won't necessarily be fair in the multi-user 4K streaming households of tomorrow. And without competitive pressure, there's nothing ensuring these caps scale with use. In fact, ISPs are incentivized to tighten the noose further once you've agreed to have your usage metered.

And with the current Ajit Pai-led FCC clearly intent to turn a blind eye to both a lack of competition and the predatory behavior that results from it (be it violations in privacy or net neutrality), there's plenty more anti-competitive shenanigans and feebly-justified nonsense waiting in the wings.

          Ticket Watch Plans Ahead   

Season tickets are going out, which means this year’s market is about to start trading. Those of you who think in terms of hotels (cough cough stay downtown cough) and flights are already trying to figure out which game to come to, and securing seats. So I figured it’s a good time to preview this year’s secondary ticket market based on past trends.

I haven’t tried predicting the market this early before so bear with me. The data provide an enticingly safe shore to stick to, but I don’t know how much value to you I’d be if I ignored a few plausibly navigable lanes.

The home schedule and face pricing:

image

Movie Night

Where: Michigan Stadium

When: July 15th at 7pm

What Movie? Beauty and the Beast

Face: Free. Seating is like the spring game.

Worst-case scenario: A cartoon candelabra is whimiscal and endearing, but becomes grotesque in live-action. First you’ll feel as awkward as Hermione Granger looks, and feel even worse when your daughter’s crawling into your bed with nightmares for the next week. Speaking of nightmares…

-----------------------------

HomeSure Lending Classic vs Florida in the Empty Heart of Texas

JerryWorld-1

LET’S GO PARKING!

Where: Jerryworld, a post-apocalyptic cement hellscape between Fort Worth and Dallas, Texas

Face: $118 (upper deck, row 19, 40 yard line)

Current Secondary Price: $121 (way upper deck, corner, row 13)

Best value right now: Face. You can get a lower bowl seat for $225 right now.

Market outlook: I’m getting a lot of emails about this game because NFL stadium games overprice the face. This creates a weird market where you can still buy tickets from the ticket office and the secondary ticket market bottoms out at that face value. The only way such a market breaks is if one team suddenly becomes unwatchable (doubtful for the first game of the season) or on the ground outside the stadium when all those big groups of tickets are still unsold. This is a good college football game moved to charmless, soulless shrine to a megalomaniac, and unlike a bowl game Dallas’s weather on Labor Day weekend is going to be a significant downgrade from home (for the Michigan fans—Floridians welcome any excuse to get out of the swamp from June-October). However the Michigan-side tickets are already officially sold out.

Arlington is also a charmless giant parking lot with ridiculous parking fees so it’s difficult to get the whole ticket market out there like a bowl game would. I’ve wanted to try bringing an inkjet printer you can plug into your car then buying a last-minute ticket online so this might be the game to do that.

The big bit of advice for this one is the $10 per ticket to get out of the corners is worth it—this stadium was designed to get as many wallet-carrying organisms into it as possible, and the consensus is many (not all) of the crappy seats are particularly bad.

Worst-case scenario: Let’s never do this again.

[Hit THE JUMP for more pleasant afternoons, and evenings]

-----------------------------

Cincinnati

Where: Ann Arbor

Face: $75 plus ~$15 in fees. You can get still get those ticket packs (MSU plus 1-3 yawners) from the mothership but only stranded single tickets remain. I don’t recommend them—MSU is not MSU(!) this year and only Minnesota has a chance of going over face.

Single-game tickets will go on sale in a couple of weeks, with donors getting a few days to buy before it opens up to the community. If you’ve got zero standing, sign up for their email list and you’ll make their equivalent of silver elite.

Current Secondary Price: $50 in trade, $80 for 2 e-tickets together. These are a ton of single tickets on the market right now and lists aren’t yet consolidated so you get this weirdness:

image

…where it’s the same ticket.

Best value right now: Face. But wait for the secondary market to open up.

Market outlook: This could get trickier than a typical mid-major September game for myriad reasons:

  • Michigan could lose to Florida.
  • Cincy isn’t that far away and a new coach well known to Ohioans could get a pretty large road fanbase.
  • Weather in September can be great or awful
  • Still the home opener and it’s a Harbaugh season.

But it’s Cincy, not a name opponent. If you get your tickets for $50 each out the door it’s fine. You’ll probably be able to scalp them for $40 or $20 the day-of, depending on factors you’ll know about by then.

Worst-case scenario: Potato.

-----------------------------

Air Force

image

Where: Ann Arbor

Face: $50 with $15 in fees. See above.

Current Secondary Price: $50, and not likely to be more.

Best value right now: Your friend who bought these because he wanted to make sure he got MSU tickets.

Market outlook: Dog of the year, made even less valuable because they’re bundling them with MSU tickets. The secondary market is going to be trying to offload these for face and won’t give up until gameday, when they’ll be all over the place from $30 to “Do you want them? Come pick them up.” If your friend says buy him dinner for them, tell him they’re worth two beers.

But still more than two Cokes.

Worst-case scenario: Being unable to move while they’re carting a precious starting defensive lineman off the field with Michigan still uneasily up just 13-7.

-----------------------------

Purdue

Where: West Lafayette

Face: $30 plus $10 in fees.

Current Secondary Price: $56

Best value right now: You can get PRIME seats (that’s what they call them) for under $100. Purdue football ladies and gentlemen. You can find cheap tickets any time; I’d just buy seats from the ticket office. Call them, make up something about how it’s a gift for your Purdue wife, and they’ll set you up.

Market outlook: Given the current conference alignment and the fact that the world is ending when the cable contract is up, you won’t get another chance to visit Purdue in your lifetime, probably. That said this one won’t be expensive—Purdue fans have a new coach but this team isn’t going to be any good and Michigan, though the best game on the home schedule, isn’t going to move their needle enough, especially on a year they have Indiana at home and Louisville in Indianapolis.

Worst-case scenario: Jeff Brohm trick play extravaganza. Also West Lafayette is suprisingly unattractive as college towns go.

-----------------------------

Michigan State

Where: Ann Arbor

Face: $125 plus $20 in fees plus $125 in tickets to other games.

Current Secondary Price: $229

Best value right now: Wait for some embarrassing losses then ask your Sparty buddy if he’d get them through the MSU ticket office for you. They get a lower endzone section that isn’t half bad, and Sparties are not going to be interested this year.

Market outlook: The secondary market still thinks this is a rivalry game, and there are strong rumors this will be a night game to bump the price up. Michigan fans are gonna want to go, but the lack of Sparties will keep the price around $100-$150 by gametime I bet.

Worst-case scenario: Sparty gives Michigan a game because this is the only game they have to play for. Then while trying to get out of town you’re assaulted by a roving band of helots who’ve been drinking all day, and are now carrying off our couches while chanting “Defeat with Dignity.”

-----------------------------

Indiana

Football_450x225

non-zero chance this image from their homepage was doctored to fill in the empty seats

Where: Bloomington

Face: $10 (Youth) or $70 plus $15 in fees.

Current Secondary Price: $54

Best value right now: Go pick your seats on the IU website and use the promo code TICKETS10 (update: that didn’t last long) or join their email list and wait for a better one. Seriously they have online promo codes for football tickets!

Market outlook: IU has visits from Ohio State and Wisconsin as well this year so the Michigan game isn’t interesting except that they always tend to play us close and lose. This time they’ve got a good enough defense to do that again despite Mike DeBord, but it’s late enough in a rough schedule that you can probably bet you’re walking into basketball season, not a high-interest game. Buy some crappy seats from the ticket office if you can’t find them on your walk to the stadium, and move down.

Worst-case scenario: IU has a decent case that they should have won.

-----------------------------

Penn State

10392115

The strip of red on the left are sections NAU through NLU, and will be mostly Michigan fans.

Where: Beaver Stadium in Happy Valley which includes State College, wherein you’ll find University Park.

Face: All ticket requests go to an interest email form so it’s hard to tell.

Current Secondary Price: $160.

Best value right now: Not yet on sale really, but you can get someone’s season tickets for a fair $160.

How to read PSU ticket sections: I actually like their system. Your ticket section starts with an N, S, E, or W, and then the letters of that section start with “A” (in the corner”, center at “E”, and roll through L. If there’s a third letter it means it’s a deck up, e.g. “U” for upper deck. So NEU would mean north endzone, centered, upper deck.

Market outlook: It’s a white-out game at night…of course.

2015 prices went down to $75 online and got super-cheap off the standard market—with the hoops team playing Xavier on Friday night a bunch of core fans who’d bought tickets from the Alumni Association way in advance decided it wasn’t worth the trip. The Michigan section wound up with empty seats, which means if you called somebody’s uncle on Friday night and got him to call the athletic department to changes his tickets to will call, you could have gotten in for the price of a lawn cut.

This again is a game I urge you to use Michigan avenues to secure your seats. That’s because PSU’s secondary market is a weird one for a multitude of reasons: cultish fanbase, long drives, night game, by far their best home game, coming off a bye). I’ve been in the worst seats in the building (for the worst part of the worst game of football ever played) and you can still see everything just fine.

If Penn State turns out to be pretty bad, ticket prices will drop and you can find good seats in the lower bowl for prices in the $150 range, however their schedule before Michigan isn’t that daunting: Akron, Pitt, GSU, @Iowa, Indiana, @NW. There are two potential losses in there. They also have a bye week before us, so there’s an extra week for whatever trend to keep affecting the market. You don’t want to be in week 2 of that trend if they’re undefeated; if they have losses to Iowa and Pitt you can wait and see if prices will tank after Northwestern, but buy before the uptick.

Of note, I’ve been to two away games at Penn State now and confirmed this with my PSU friends, and the on-the-ground scalping market for Michigan games is always seller- not buyer-friendly. Michigan is a huge draw for one, but the bigger thing is they’re in the middle of nowhere, and State College is a tiny town. In Ann Arbor or Madison or Columbus a lot of the early morning street sales are locals—honey would you go sell our extra tickets then pick up Jacob from soccer practice? That doesn’t happen as much in Happy Valley, and in course the tickets you can get on the street are largely scalpers and (this happened once to me) sometimes multiple-copy printouts. I recommend if you’re planning on going, get your tickets through the Michigan Alumni Association or suck it up and buy online. You should find them around $150 or even $100 after a PSU loss, and at that point it’s worthwhile.

Worst-case scenario: Lavert Hill gets called out by their goofy stadium announcer. #GrapentineIsaTreasure.

-----------------------------

Rutgers (Homecoming)

Where: Ann Arbor

Face: $75 plus fees don’t buy this one for face.

Current Secondary Price: $41 (!!!!)

Best value right now: Waiting.

Market outlook: The latest attempt to make Rutgers happen is to make it the Homecoming game. This is unlikely to make Rutgers happen. This is a bad mid-major we play every year with no traveling fanbase, and in proximity to way more interesting games. The homecoming price tag on the season tickets doesn’t matter because that’s really just an Ohio State/Michigan State surcharge, and the fact that the plane of face value is so easily broken really opens up the likelihood of this game being really cheap to buy online.

Worst-case scenario: Missing the superfluous two-point conversion in front of Mom and Dad would be mortifying.

-----------------------------

Minnesota

image

Where: Ann Arbor

Face: $70 plus fees

Current Secondary Price: $67.

Best value right now: Secondary ticket market right now.

Market outlook: If there’s a ticket besides Ohio State you should buy early this year it’s this one. Minnesota fans do travel well and P.J. Fleck makes this an exciting year—they’re underrated in my opinion from Claeys losing them some games they had the abiilty to win given the talent on hand. The market is already reacting to that, pricing even single-ticket hand swaps around face value.

If you miss the opportunity I bet these will be trading at $80 for most of the year, until it gets close to Game Day and the regular home cycle dips it down at the end. Weather in early November is also a toss-up—a cold rain can drop a game like this to…not gonna make that joke again. Even in nice weather scalping will still be plenty doable, but I’d bring extra $20s unless you really want to play the market.

Worst-case scenario: ROW THE BOAT! t-shirts for days.

-----------------------------

Maryland

Where: College Park

Face: Single-game sales won’t be availabe until August—season tickets are less than one Michigan-Ohio State game though

Current Secondary Price: $70 and this is speculative.

Best value right now: Wait.

Market outlook: Maryland isn’t that good this year, and every time Michigan has played there or they’ve played here the ticket’s been a dog. There are factors for that, but it’s still mid-November in a game not expected to be very competitive. I think decent seats for $50 is fine, and it’s worth waiting this one out to reap the last-minute dumps.

Worst-case scenario: Maryland fans want to come.

-----------------------------

Wisconsin

image

The Art! The Art! The Art!

Where: Madison

Face: $110 for season ticket holders but Wisconsin is a marketplace seller, using Stubhub for individual ticket sales.

Current Secondary Price: $180

Best value right now: Use the Alumni Association or buy through Umich.

Market outlook: Wisconsin tickets are a tough market and this is a quasi-rivalry they haven’t seen in a long time (and they smell blood). It’s likely both teams will lose a few games before they meet so I’d gamble on buying after one of those (Badgers preferably for multiple reasons). I wouldn’t expect to get them below face, and $150 sounds about right. One thing in your favor is Iowa is right before us on their schedule and the road rivalry the week after, so Wisconsin fans don’t necessarily have to circle that one weekend in November. On the other hand an Iowa win easily gets them to 10-0 and prices will blow by $200 in a heartbeat.

Worst-case scenario: Last year’s Iowa game against a better team.

-----------------------------

The Game

image

[Bryan Fuller]

Where: Ann Arbor

Face: “$125” but all the ridiculous prices on the rest of the season ticket package are really Ohio State ticket surcharges.

Current Secondary Price: $246

Best value right now: ^that.

Market outlook: This is the real question isn’t it. The Game tends to start bidding at $200 and go up from there unless somebody’s team sucks. The only dips come when there’s a loss between them. But they also tend to cap at $350 since at that point people look at a day in the cold versus covering most of their season ticket package. Also Michigan fans aren’t as good as Ohio State fans about holding onto their seats/not letting them fall into the hands of the enemy—just the nature of the culture.

Last year it got up to $340. The lowest plausible is $155, which is what it went to in 2015 for a hot minute after OSU lost to Michigan State. It had been $255 for awhile and peaked at $300. Of course with OSU’s flagging hope Michigan’s got up again.

If Michigan is going into The Game with three losses it’ll be a more buyer-friendly market, but Ohio State fans will buying at too high of a rate to get it down near face again. On the other hand, Harbaugh. If you’re planning to come home for Thanksgiving and be in Ann Arbor on Saturday, unless you’re willing to wait the whole season to see this come down, you won’t feel too bad about this price. The other option is to watch all season and jump at $180.

Worst-case scenario: 2015

          REVIEW: 2017 Honda CR-V – Updated Styling, Improved Power   

Sedan sales are flagging and crossovers are the car of the moment, so naturally automakers are introducing new crossovers at an astounding rate. Honda added the HR-V to its lineup to increase its chances of enticing crossovers buyers, but it already has the go-to crossover of the non-minivan set in the Honda CR-V.

The model has been on the market for long enough that it’s an established name, but this year there’s an all-new fifth generation of the popular crossover. It gets a new look inside and out, a new powertrain, and plenty of technology and safety updates designed to keep it at the top of the segment.

Looking for a new or used Honda CR-V? Check out BestRide’s listings search here.

Style-wise, the CR-V looks good, but it’s nothing stunning. That’s not to say it’s drab. There’s a dual exhaust in back to give it a sporty look and the hood and wheelbase are longer. This keeps the CR-V from looking dated and is a welcome update, but this isn’t a standout vehicle that will turn heads at the carpool pickup.

Bigger and more interesting news is the latest engine. This year’s CR-V gets its first turbocharged engine in a 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder with 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque, which was in the Touring model we tested. The base LX model still features a 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder without the turbocharging. Both are paired to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).

The new engine gives the CR-V a much needed boost. It makes this mild-mannered crossover more fun to drive. Especially accelerating to highway speeds, the CR-V now gets out of its own way rather than making you nervous about the cars looming in your rearview mirror.

CVTs are notoriously loud, but this one keeps itself quiet. You’ll hear it a bit under heavy acceleration, but most of the time it’s unobtrusive. The cabin is a quiet space, unless the kids are going crazy, with both road and wind noise well-muted for a relaxing ride.

Where the all-new CR-V truly shines is its interior styling. Outside, it might not attract much attention, but inside it’s a looker. Our test model was the top Touring trim and it includes a 12-way power adjustable seat with 4-way lumbar for the driver. The front passenger gets a 4-way power seat and both are heated. Those seats are leather with a matching leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

There’s dual-zone automatic climate control, a 9-speaker premium audio system, and a 7-inch touchscreen display with navigation and a multi-view rear camera. CarPlay and Android Auto are also included for simplified smartphone integration. Honda decided to add the volume button back to the dashboard this year, the lack of which drove many a person nuts in the previous generation CR-V.

Safety features abound, particularly in the Touring which has a long list of standard safety features as a part of Honda Sensing. It includes adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and road departure mitigation.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the 2017 Honda CR-V a Top Safety Pick+, which is their highest rating. It earned top scores of Good in all crash test and Superior for front crash prevention. This is comforting news for the many families who spend their days running from school to practice in the CR-V.

This is essentially a family hauler, and it does the job beautifully. The interior is attractive and comfortable and easily sits five passengers whether it’s kids in car seats or adults. There’s ample room for everyone, and an impressive amount of cargo capacity. Fold the rear seats down and there’s 75.8 cubic feet or leave them up for passengers and you still have 39.2 cubic feet in back.

Looking for a new or used Honda CR-V? Check out BestRide’s listings search here.

Pricing starts at an affordable $24,045 for the base LX, but you get that smaller engine and lose many of the CR-V’s more upscale amenities. The rest of the lineup includes the EX ($26,795), EX-L ($29,695), and Touring ($32,495.) Even in its highest trim, the CR-V manages to avoid sticker shock.

The 2017 Honda CR-V takes a car that already worked and makes it better. There are no dramatic changes this year, but a multitude of small ones add up to a big improvement for this popular crossover.


          Finally the outer-outer gunwales, or how I should have paid attention to Sam in the first place.   
I see what Sam meant. As in all of us considering deviating from his plans maybe aught to reconsider our momentary lapses of reason. When I talked to him the other day, he cautioned me not to omit wood from the gunwales. By the time I had talked to him, that was, of course, too late. I had already left them off as I had posted a few back. I had made the outer deeper to compensate but his caution left me thinking to go back. 

If I was going to add it to the inside, I would have to cut my futtocks, which I did not want to do, and work inside the boat on my knees, also which I did not want to do. I really did like the final contour that I had cut the futtock tips to, so adding another outer was the best solution. Plus it was at chest height while standing which made it an even nicer option. I found a piece of 14' by 4/4 white oak in the shop, cleaned it up, dressed it, cut two pieces from it and beveled both edges. 

And of course I was anxious to get it done, as the amount of work left was dropping quite rapidly each week. This meant that I was not too careful on the bevel, got lazy with saw fence alignment and ended up putting burn marks in the piece as it went through. Sanding removed the little roughness but not the burn marks. Serves me right for rushing. No harm done but I'll be glad when it gets final colour on the hull and hides the black marks deep away from sight.


Test fitting the piece.

Test fitted with fasteners in place ready to pull apart and bond it.

Now bonded with fasteners in place and with a little clamping at the tip only.

Bonded with holes plugged.

Plugs trimmed.

Plugs sanded flush.

Underside of Outer and Outer-outer with the final epoxy coats.

This was when I could see what Sam meant. The outer gunwales, which seemed stiff before, were now notably rigid. If I had not paid heed to the expert, I wouldn't have known. But, today, the lesson was learned without consequence.

At this point, I'm down to the centre compartment completion, screw head filling, sanding and finish coating. Not just can I see the light at the end of the tunnel but now I'm close enough to see out of it into the daylight.

Also this week I ordered the outboard. After searching Kijiji for a 20 hp long shaft, tiller steered, electric start, power tilt model for a month, I came up short.  I sourced a cheap one on the coast but couldn't find a way to get it to Calgary cheaply. And then it fell to luck: Mercury motors went on sale at Tracker Boats in Balzac for such a low price that I couldn't even contemplate passing one of their power tilt ones up. So this key item got crossed off the list.

This kind of momentum kind of grew on me. I ordered all the cleats, chocks, lights, eyes and other such pieces from Boatcraft in Edmonton, who like usual, gave great service and great pricing.
          Keels and Bilge Keels   
I'm not sure why this step took as long as it did. I think it was the time of year with all the kids' soccer, some sailing, some biking and outside spring projects on top of the usual work, home, and Scouts activities that took the time away.  Excuses or not, it took be nearly a month to get these 5 pieces done. 

I say five pieces but a review of the photo record reveals that the mere five strips of wood were accompanied by 5 coats of shiny black graphite bottom coat (some done twice), and 3 bottom rub strips. The record revealed that the five bottom coats were interspersed, again, with sanding and fairing. It also revealed that a fair amount of procrastination dragged the time out. 

Ready to venture into the world of outside keels and spray rails, the plans were spread out. 
I took an inventory of the wood in my shop and found enough purple heart for the keels and rails. I also found a nice piece of white oak from a prior project for the bilge keels. Purpleheart is nice but tough on cutters, so the discovery of a piece of white oak was a real treat. These were all ripped and dressed up to 3/4" by 1". 
White oak bilge keels came first.  Here they are marked and with holes drilled for #10x3/4" FH SMS on 6" centres.  The keels were epoxied as well with 105/206/403.
Once the bilge keels were on, my lovely wife assisted me in getting the centreline marked for the main keel.

Centreline marked.  This fortunately revealed the boat was, more or less, straight.
Next a trip off to my father-in-law where I used his bandsaw to rip the last few feet of the centre keel into 1/4" strips.  

The centre keel ripped and located on the forward end of the hull. 
The main keel was comprised of two pieces making up the entire length.  These were scarfed together with an 8:1 joint. The aft end of the main keel was then screwed down with the sliced end located in the correct location and aft end trimmed to the final length. Plastic sheeting was added under the forward end where the sliced material was.  The sliced joints were spread and 105/205/403 was used to glue them together.

The sliced, glued wood was held laterally by a few Irwin clamps.  The nice thing about these clamps is that the pads are not glue-able with epoxy and so can be removed after the epoxy sets up.  Saves having to try to jimmy some plastic squares under other types of clamps.  A couple of load belts held it to the hull.
After the clamps were removed, the keel was then removed, moderately dressed up and trimmed for the stem pieces. The stem pieces required a little patterning and a test piece or two before I had the right (almost right in retrospect) shape. The photos revealed a short flat spot in line with the centre panels that, I'm not happy with but I'm not going back.

Keel and stem in place with 105/206/403 and #10x 1-1/4" FH SMS on 6" centres.

All glued and sanded.  A little cleanup on the hull remains.
The drawings from Mr. Devlin state that the spray rails should follow the bootstripe. So I needed to find the bootstripe top. This then meant that I needed to find the waterline. I tried a number of unsatisfying methods but finally ended up following the method described in WoodenBoat Number 211 (November/December 2009), page 41 and pictures 20 and 21. This was the second part of the article on building the Jericho Skiff. Finding the waterline then made finding the bootstripe top possible.

Marking the waterline on the transom is the easy part.


Three attempts later, WB 211 comes to the rescue with a resulting good location. 
Be warned: Sharpie Red marking pen ink seems to repel epoxy and makes nice linear fisheyes in the nice black coating of 105/206/Graphite. What happens next is an excellent opportunity to discover how abrasion resistant graphite-powder-in-epoxy is, and how black you can get sanding graphite coating off again. On the other side of the boat, acetone took off the red lines before a mess was made.

After a couple of (properly done) coats.

After five coats. Boy does dust ever show up in black coating!
Finally I got to the spray rails. I had to convince myself a few times that the "curved" spray rail was not curved at all and did follow a straight waterline. The rails were put in place with 105/206/403 and #10x3/4" FH SMS.

Cleaning up 105/206/403. Looks like I'm going to have to keep the "solar panel" under a hat this summer.
Some beaching strips seemed appropriate to protect the nice white oak and purpleheart keels so I decided to add some stainless strips to the keels. A few calls looking for 1/8"x1/2" 316L flatstock showed that this was not practical either from pricing or from availability. I did find the same flatstock section in 6061-T6 aluminum. I drilled it up and put it in place with #6x1" FH SMS on 6" centres.

The spray rail is straight!

Finally ready to flip over!




          Enthusiasm builds: Sanding the hull!   

Now that feels better. There are few things quite as rewarding as the shaping of wood, even plain ol' marine plywood. The result of sanding of the transom had filled my tank with enthusiasm.  The outside of the hull now needed the same treatment and I had to curb the same enthusiasm to allow a few things to take place first.

These items were the bonding of the futtocks to the hull and the filling of the inner seams.  As the sanding of the outer hull would, or could, reduce the strength of the tabs, I thought that these would be a minimum requirement before I would allow my enthusiasm to create problems for me.

I started with the bulkhead and futtock bonding. Sam had suggested that I clamp the outwales to the shear to remove any scallops from the plywood as it came around the bulkheads. I did not have the intended material on hand but heard his caution. What I did have was some 3/4" square white oak in 10' lengths to apply to the task. It took two pieces per side and a few clamps to end up with a nice curve to the shear-line.

3/4" Square oak took the scallop out of the wales.

I inserted wedges at the bulkheads to create some space between them and the hull panels.  Into these gaps, I forced 105/206/406/wood-flour and then removed the wedges. Each futtock was glued in turn until all was done. The scraper cleaned up the squish-out. I didn't fuss that too much as there was plenty of time once the hull was flipped to do real clean-up.  Besides the space under the boat was tight and I was not too happy to be under there.

Wedges were cut to fill in the gap between BH1 and the hull panels where they still sat away by about an inch (but symmetrical!) at the shear to intermediate panel joint.  These were tacked in a few places - just enough to glue the panels in place but again I was focused on not being under the boat and more interested in getting to the outer hull sanding.

At this point, I decided to apply the inside fillet to the stem where the panels joined.  This area takes quite a lot of force over the boat life and further the exterior bond is cut away for the application of the outside stem.  This joint was filled with 105/206/406/wood-flour and given a overlay of 17 ounce biaxial cloth tape with three coats of 105/207.

I used a multi curved spreader from Boatcraft in Edmonton to apply the fillet to the inner stem. As an aside, Don runs a pretty great show at Boatcraft and has been in business since 1955 (Boatcraft is also the maker of Waters Dancing kayak kits).  Boatcraft provides specialized service for us Canadian prairie boat builders with all sorts of epoxy supplies. Best pricing anywhere on Marine stainless hardware and gives discounts on all sorts once you got a big enough order. He's got my recommendation.

Filleting tool from Boatcraft


The outer seam filling and the filling of the wire holes meant that inside seams were not smooth enough to get an easy fill on the gap.  Too many rough areas for the scraper.  These needed sanding first. I used my DeWalt 5" Random Orbital Sander to smooth these out. I was complaining before about not appreciating the space under the boat, now I was really unexcited about being under there.

I looked at the space repeatedly.  This was turning into procrastination.  Just how can boat-building turn into procrastination?  I'm not sure but it did.  

At least for a little while.

After an hour or maybe two, I ran out of shop benches to tidy, shavings to sweep and other general time wasting activities to do, so I masked up. I stuffed my 5" dust remover hose for air circulation, a portable light, an extension cord and the sander under the boat and joined them all for 20 minutes of sanding.  So two hours of procrastination and twenty minutes of sanding. Seems a bit out-of-ratio. Not to mention dusty, noisy and sweaty.

After the dust had settled and the myriad of tools were removed, under again I ventured to fill the inner seams with 105/206/406/wood-flour. Again this took less time than I had spent procrastinating. But the next session would bring outside sanding and that was worth an ounce of celebration.

It ended up being two days before the sanding could begin, but it did happen on a nice sunny afternoon with temperatures above freezing. The 9227 worked away and I finally got the real feel for the machine, which is just as well as it took a good two and a half hours of slow determined work to produce the result I was looking for. Pounds of dust ensued, but the Chinook winds blew the airborne particles well away and what it didn't, the dust removers got. A few blasts with the air hose ensured that anything that did build up went away. 

This was fantastic.  The shape of the hull was liberated from the detracting tabs. The irregular sections were smoothed. The bow area turned into the classic Devlin stem form. Then came the real therapy: long sanding boards. Once machine work was done the silence of the hand sanders was a welcome respite. A hour of sanding by hand left me tired and fulfilled. The power of good long boards with gritty paper on them to not only smooth the hull but to smooth the day out always amazes me. But it does - try it sometime.

Gotta love that Sam Devlin stem form.
At this point, I realized that I had suffered too much buoyancy to have taken pictures along the way.  And thus I was left with only the physical and mental results.

          Which way will property prices swing after GST?   


PUNE: The Centre's proposal of a 12% GST on sale of houses from July 1 has left both real estate players and consumers calculating amounts they have to shell out or pass on. In Maharashtra, GST will be in addition to the 6% stamp duty rate charged by the state. This will mean higher outgo on a headline basis. Experts feel the difference in final pricing will not be over 1-3%. TOI explains various scenarios under the GST regime.Existing levy and GST

In Maharashtra, customers now pay 4.5% as service tax and 1% as VAT. They also pay a 6% stamp duty on the cost of the unit. This brings the overall tax rate to 11.5%. Under the proposed GST, there will be a 12% flat tax rate on the cost of a unit, in addition to the stamp duty that remains at 6%. This brings the overall tax rate to 18%.

Will overall unit cost rise?

By the looks of it, the answer is “yes“. But theoretically , no. This is because developers are expected to bring down the cost of a unit, as they get input tax credit on raw material such as steel, cement and sand.

Example: For steel, though the tax rate is fixed at 18%, a builder will have to pay a supplier only a part of this (18%). This will depend on how much the supplier has already paid for procurement. The developer is expected to pass on this low rate and the ensuing benefit of low cost of procurement to the buyer by reducing the unit cost.

Will it work in practice?

Nobody knows. Shrikant Paranjpe, chairman, Paranjpe Schemes, says: “ All depends on how much credit vendors pass on to us. The calculation does not take into account land (outside GST ambit for now), which can have a bearing on the overall expenditure.“ So, if the cost of land is 10% of the overall project cost, there is a probability of the cost not rising too much or even coming down a bit. Where the cost of land is higher, for example 60-70% of the project cost, apartment prices will rise.

For affordable housing

“There was a 4.5% service tax exemption on affordable housing projects under 60 sq m in size. A 12% GST rate does not speak about these exemptions.So, affordable housing costs could go up due to higher tax,“ says Praveen Jain, president of the National Real Estate Development Council . “Even if the unit cost is cut, there is the Ready Reckoner rate. We cannot bring down the rates below it,“ Paranjpe says.

Incomplete projects

If a project is in the initial stage, there is a higher chance that a consumer will get the benefits of the lower-cost pass over. But if a project is 80% complete, any major benefit is unlikely . On completed projects, buyers might not get any benefit of cost reduction but will have to pay 12% GST if the property is not registered before July 1. If a consumer has registered a property , the old tax rates will apply . For those registering after July 1, the 12% GST will be applicable. For benefits of the low rates to be passed on, the consumers might have to wait for at least 3 months.

New projects

Gera Developments managing director said Rohit Gera sa ys, “New projects will see lower input costs and will allow developers to quote lower prices. But a12% GST will be applicable on this quoted price. The impact depends on the ratio of construction costs to selling price.“

Resale projects

There is no impact of GST.

RERA-GST impact

Most developers feel prices should go up by 5-8% if supply remains muted. This is because developers are cautious because of the Real Estate Regulation Act (RERA). “RERA and GST are coming in simultaneously .It will take a few months to see how the market reacts,“ said Gopal Sarda, Group CEO of Kolte Patil Developers.

          Small Cap Value Report (30 June 2017) - GMD, TNI, FJET   
Good morning, It's the last day of H1, which means that some companies are producing results today because they have to (if their calendar year-end is December). Better companies tend to have their results known long in advance of deadline, and it puts investors at a disadvantage when they have to wait so long to see what is happening, so this is a red flag. It's not that any company which does this is uninvestable - it's just something which should spark extra caution! Onto a few updates: Game Digital (LON:GMD) Share price: 23.6p (-28%)No. of shares: 170.9 millionMarket cap: £40 millionTrading Update I last covered this games and console retailer at the interim results in March, when the share price was 42p (for context, it IPO'd at 200p in 2014). Value destruction in terms of the share price has therefore been immense and investors are now again pricing in financial distress. It last went into administration in 2012. Consumer demand for Nintendo Switch has been, and remains, very strong, however the level of supply to the UK market has been lower than expected.

          Cloud hosted CI for .NET projects   

Originally posted on: http://blog.bobtacoindustries.com/archive/2014/06/02/cloud-hosted-ci-for-.net-projects.aspx

Continuous integration (CI) is important. If you don’t have it set up…you should. There are a lot of different options available for hosting your own CI server, but they all require you to maintain your own infrastructure. If you’re a business, that generally isn’t a problem. However, if you have some open source projects hosted, for example on GitHub, there haven’t really been any options. That has changed with the latest release of AppVeyor, which bills itself as “Continuous integration for busy developers.” What’s different about AppVeyor is that it’s a hosted solution.

Why is that important? By being a hosted solution, it means that I don’t have to maintain my own infrastructure for a build server.

How does that help if you’re hosting an open source project? AppVeyor has a really competitive pricing plan. For an unlimited amount of public repositories, it’s free. That gives you a cloud hosted CI system for all of your GitHub projects for the cost of some time to set them up, which actually isn’t hard to do at all.

I have several open source projects (hosted at https://github.com/scottdorman), so I signed up using my GitHub credentials. AppVeyor fully supported my two-factor authentication with GitHub, so I never once had to enter my password for GitHub into AppVeyor. Once it was done, I authorized GitHub and it instantly found all of the repositories I have (both the ones I created and the ones I cloned from elsewhere). You can even add “build badges” to your markdown files in GitHub, so anyone who visits your project can see the status of the lasted build.

Out of the box, you can simply select a repository, add the build project, click New Build and wait for the build to complete. You now have a complete CI server running for your project. The best part of this, besides the fact that it “just worked” with almost zero configuration is that you can configure it through a web-based interface which is very streamlined, clean and easy to use or you can use a appveyor.yml file. This means that you can define your CI build process (including any scripts that might need to be run, etc.) in a standard file format (the YAML format) and store it in your repository. The benefits to that are huge. The file becomes a versioned artifact in your source control system, so it can be branched, merged, and is completely transparent to anyone working on the project.

By the way, AppVeyor isn’t limited to just GitHub. It currently supports GitHub, BitBucket, Visual Studio Online, and Kiln.

I did have a few issues getting one of my projects to build, but the same day I posted the problem to the support forum a fix was deployed, and I had a functioning CI build about 5 minutes after that. Since then, I’ve provided some additional feature requests and had a few other questions, all of which have seen responses within a 24-hour period. I have to say that it’s easily been one of the best customer support experiences I’ve seen in a long time.

AppVeyor is still young, so it doesn’t yet have full feature parity with some of the older (more established) CI systems available,  but it’s getting better all the time and I have no doubt that it will quickly catch up to those other CI systems and then pass them. The bottom line, if you’re looking for a good cloud-hosted CI system for your .NET-based projects, look at AppVeyor.

When I've lamented how many Macs I (and work) have owned that Apple has orphaned (will be eleven when El Capper stops receiving security updates), Bart always responded, "You don't expect Apple to update old systems forever, do you?" Well, actually, since Macs run on a foundation of BSD-Unix, and OpenBSD is still actively supporting now really old PPC based Macs hardware. I guess it's possible. Just not happening. But Bart did have an economic recommendation the MacTracker pricing App may (or may not!) help. Sell. Sell early. Sell while your Apple hardware is "current." I'm not trying to put words in Bart's mouth (even if it looks like it above), so maybe he could weigh in with more specifics as to when he thinks it''s best to sell and replace with new?

          How to Buy REOs REOs Versus NonPerforming Notes   
I would like to share something on how to buy REOs vs. Non-Performing Notes with You.

It's a tough choice, I know.

And I'm sure some people look at non-performing notes and say "Why would I EVER want to own paper when I can own the real estate for soooo cheap?!"

Well, yes. REOs can be cheap.

Well, yes. It is real property as opposed to a debt obligation.

And, yes. You can get rid of it pretty quickly if you price it right. So why shouldn't everyone drop everything they're doing and buy REOs?

4 Types of Risk When Buying REOs:

1. Valuation Risk

You've gotta nail the home value, and take good care of evaluating interior condition here. It's one thing to find yourself with a non-performing note, where you have several ways to turn that note into cash flow (e.g. get borrower to make payments).

It's quite another when you have a vacant property, trying to squeeze profit from your REO. It can obviously be done, but you should know your area values and your interior condition much better when buying REOs than when you're buying notes.

2. Purchase Risks Involved With REOs

They can be a time waster until you nail your sources! Usually you are dealing with 2-5 brokers deep in a chain, and at least one ubiquitous "attorney" who is a fraud and huckster claiming he or she is (not has, but "is"!) a "mandate" for someone else.

3. Deal Risks

A friend of mine just spent 2 months chasing one deal of 16 REOs. He just closed on 1 of them. All the others were pulled by the seller as the agents (all but 1 were listed) got the properties into contract.

Or they were lost to a competitor since there were 3 brokers in between him and the seller. The one REO not pulled was the one that wasn't already listed. The "loss ratio" on non-performing note pools - in other words the rate at which notes are pulled from a specific pool - aren't as high by any means. (One day, ask me about the west coast pool that we lost!)

4. Discount Risk when Buying REOs

The discounts that you typically hear about when buying REOs may not be quite as juicy as you've been made to believe.

Unlike a "sweet" note buying deal that closes in the 30%'s, REO prices in that range are typically a pipedream. But you will hear about pricing on non-performing notes being that low on a regular basis.

I'm not panning REOs by any means. Just jump in with your eyes open, and don't get fooled by all the hype that you're reading about the REO deals to be had right now.

          PCS Digital Business HUB and API Economy   

What is PCS Digital Business HUB?

Pacific Controls (PCS), a leading provider of Internet of Things (IoT) managed services solutions globally and Middle East’s largest Tier 3 secure data center / cloud services provider, has collaborated with WSO2.Telco, creator of a ground breaking digital enablement platform, to launch Middle East’s first Digital Business Hub. The Digital Business Hub will also contribute towards the acceleration of the on-going transformation of Dubai into the world’s most advanced and connected Digital Marketplace. 

The PCS Digital Business HUB is a ground breaking digital enablement platform, which is designed to enable enterprises, MNOs(Mobile Network Operators), government and individuals to transform the way they engage and partner in digital ecosystem by removing many of the barriers by providing API and Identity as a service hence positively affect an organizations profitability (API Economy). This platform provides a single point of integration, creating a simple, agile, monetizable digital service echo system aimed at connecting government services, enterprises and consumers across Middle East Region.

What is API Economy ? 


                   


API economy is a general term that describes the way application programming interfaces (APIs) can positively affect an organization's profitability. Today, business leaders are aware of the financial impact APIs can have and companies are generating revenue by exposing APIs as business building blocks for third party applications. In the API economy, application programming interfaces (APIs) act as the digital glue that links services, applications and systems. This allows businesses to make the most of their data to create compelling customer experiences and open new revenue channels.
There is disruption happening in global business world over. For example, 50% of business-to-business collaboration will take place through Web APIs by 2017, and by next year 75% of Fortune 1000 firms will offer public Web APIs, according to IT research firm Gartner Inc.
This economy is not separate from the overall global economy, but represents a growing slice of the global economic pie:

Mobile and cloud in particular are pushing increasing amounts of economic transactions from the existing HTML web over to API-driven interactions, even as both continue to grow.

B2B supplier relationships in the form of APIs are also accelerating rapidly, replacing human web-based flows or even older fax/phone-based procurement models.

Multi-channel plays in retail, content and other sectors are all tending towards API-style implementations with many interface points feeding a single transaction process.

For this reason, it is best not to imagine that joining the API Economy would be similar to joining a new economic system. Rather, think of it as maximizing your growth potential in what is likely to become the most important component of the economy.

Life cycle of API Economy


API optimization is continuous based on insights from new customers and usage of APIs. Apps and APIs continuously improve. Product management emerges for APIs as digital products.

API management backbone

API management is the process of publishing, promoting and overseeing application programming interfaces (APIs) in a secure, scalable environment. It also includes the creation of end user support resources that define and document the API.

Technology teams striving for speed and quality needs to invest on a rock solid API management backbone that is, a platform to:


  • Create, govern, and deploy APIs: versioning, discoverability, and clarity of scope and purpose
  • Secure, monitor, and optimize usage: access control, security policy enforcement, routing, caching, throttling (rate limits and quotas), instrumentation, and analytics
  • Market, support, and monetize assets: manage sales, pricing, metering, billing, and key or token provisioning

Your approach joining the API Economy

  • Start by understanding your business context
  • Understand your firm’s role within the open Web
  • Factor in your goals for delivering mobile apps
  • If you will provide APIs, then develop your API design strategy
  • Choose your API management platform
  • Design and deliver APIs consistent with your design strategy
How PCS Digital Business HUB helps you joining the API Economy?

          Why I chose Equallogic over NetApp   
I recently had to buy some more storage for our virtualized XenServer cluster at work and just wanted to comment on how I believe NetApp have shot themselves in the foot when it comes to SMBs. I don't usually post such techie stuff, but this really annoyed me.

We currently run an older entry level NetApp FAS250 box. Its a single controller model with 14x300Gb FC disks in it and I can say it is one of the most reliable things on our network, although performance isn't incredible.

So I went to upgrade and wittled the choices down to boxes with comparible pricing: the NetApp FAS2020 (12x1TB SATA disks) and Equallogic PS5000E (16x750GB disks), both with dual controllers.

Here is a big problem with NetApp I found:

You cannot create RAID groups over 8TB on the NetApp. In addition to this, on a dual controller setup you need at least two aggregates anyway.

So, on a one box filer you not only lose a massive amount of space but also, as the more spindles you have in a RAID group the higher the performance, you lose that too!

Compare the two standard setups and see the difference:

NetApp FAS2020: 1x Five Disk RAID-DP, 1x Six Disk RAID-DP, 1x hot spare ~7TB raw space (1TB disks).

Equallogic PS5000E: 1x Fourteen disk RAID 10, 2x hot spares. ~ 5.25TB raw space (750GB disks) or 1x 15 disk RAID 50, 1x hot spare. ~7.5TB raw space.

RAID 10 is probably going to be faster than RAID DP anyway, so add the extra spindles and it should be MUCH faster than the NetApp box. Does anyone from NetApp want to comment on these stupid restrictions? I'll report more when my box arrives and tell you about the performance.
          From What Direction is the Next Recession Coming?    
If you were learning about the causes of post-World War II US recessions 20 years ago, the standard chain of events went like this: As the economy goes into an upswing, wage and price inflation starts to rise. The Federal Reserve recognizes that rising inflation isn't a sign of healthy growth, and raises interest rates. In often-used phrase, it's the job of the Federal Reserve to order that "the punch bowl removed just when the party was really warming up." The higher interest rates dampen inflation, but also lead to recession. The clear implication from this earlier line of thought is that recessions don't die of old age; instead, they are murdered by the Fed. For example, here's eminent economist Rudiger Dornbusch (and co-author of one of the preeminent macroeconomics textbooks of the time) writing back in 1997:
"No postwar recovery has died in bed of old age--the Federal Reserve has murdered every one of them. The typical pattern is that a few years into a recovery, as unemployment drops and the labor and product markets tighten, wage and price inflation picks up, the wage-price spiral gets moving, and soon the Fed steps in to douse wage demands with a good old-fashioned recession. And the whole cycle starts all over again."
But the last few recessions haven't really followed this narrative. Sure, you can see just a little belch of inflation circa 2007, but the Great Recession was at its root a financial crises tracing back to financialization of mortgage securities and a boom-and-bust in housing prices. Similarly, you can see a little burp of inflation back around 2000, but the recession of 2000-2001 was about the end of the dot-com boom, with a drop in the stock market and an accompanying fall in real investment. Even going back to the 1990-91 recession, there is again a small hop in inflation beforehand, that recession was also related to a boom-and-bust in certain regional housing markets and linked to the widespread failures across the saving-and-loan industry.

In short, the old story of recessions caused by fighting back against a rise in inflation seems outdated. Instead, a number of recent recessions seem to be more fundamentally caused by financial crises. A similar point can be made about other recessions around the world: for example, the recessions in the east Asian financial crisis of 1997-98 or the recession across the euro area in 2011-12 were driven by interactions between exchange rates, international capital movements, and the financial sector, not by fighting off inflation.  I found myself mulling over this shift while reading the 87th Annual Report of the Bank of International Statistics (released June 25, 2017).

As the report spends a couple of chapters discussing, the current and near-term prospects for the global economy are the best they have been for at least a decade. For example, the US unemployment rate had fallen to  4.3% in May, and has now been 5% or lower since September 2015. Thus, the report looks to the middle-term risks:
"The Report evaluates four risks – geopolitical ones aside – that could undermine the sustainability of the upswing. First, a significant rise in inflation could choke the expansion by forcing central banks to tighten policy more than expected. This typical postwar scenario moved into focus last year, even in the absence of any evidence of a resurgence of inflation. Second, and less appreciated, serious financial stress could materialise as financial cycles mature if their contraction phase were to turn into a more serious bust. This is what happened most spectacularly with the Great Financial Crisis (GFC). Third, short of serious financial stress, consumption might weaken under the weight of debt, and investment might fail to take over as the main growth engine. There is evidence that consumption-led growth is less durable, not least because it fails to generate sufficient increases in productive capital. Finally, a rise in protectionism could challenge the open global economic order. History shows that trade tensions can sap the global economy’s strength." 
But inflation in the US and other high-income countries has been so quiet for the last 25 years that it has puzzled economists, including Fed Chair Janet Yellen.  The BIS report notes (references to chapters and graphs omitted):

"[A] substantial and lasting flare-up of inflation does not seem likely. The link between economic slack and price inflation has proved rather elusive for quite some time now. To be sure, the corresponding link between labour market slack and wage inflation appears to be more reliable. Even so, there is evidence that its strength has declined over time, consistent with the loss of labour’s “pricing” power captured by labour market indicators. And, in turn, the link between increases in unit labour costs and price inflation has been surprisingly weak. The deeper reasons for these developments are not well understood. One possibility is that they reflect central banks’ greater inflation-fighting credibility. Another is that they mainly mirror more secular disinflationary pressures associated with globalisation and the entry of low-cost producers into the global trading system, not least China and former communist countries. Alongside technological pressures, these developments have arguably sapped both the bargaining power of labour and the pricing power of firms, making the wage-price spirals of the past less likely. These arguments suggest that, while an inflation spurt cannot be excluded, it may not be the main factor threatening the expansion, at least in the near term. Judging from what is priced in financial assets, also financial market participants appear to hold this view."
Given the good news of weak inflation, it seems plausible that the next recession will arise out during the next financial crisis. At least right now, such a crisis seems most likely to arise outside of the US and European economies. Instead, there are some troubling signs of excessive debt and financial strain in some emerging market economies, as well as in Canada. The BIS report notes:
"The main cause of the next recession will perhaps resemble more closely that of the latest one – a financial cycle bust. In fact, the recessions in the early 1990s in a number of advanced economies, without approaching the depth and breadth of the latest one, had already begun to exhibit similar features: they had been preceded by outsize increases in credit and property prices, which collapsed once monetary policy started to tighten, leading to financial and banking strains. And for EMEs [emerging market economies], financial crises linked to financial cycle busts have been quite prominent, often triggered or amplified by the loss of external funding; recall, for instance, the Asian crisis some 20 years ago. ...
"Admittedly, such risks are not apparent in the countries at the core of the GFC [global financial crisis], where domestic financial booms collapsed, such as the United States, the United Kingdom or Spain. ... Rather, the classical signs of financial cycle risks are apparent in several countries largely spared by the GFC, which saw financial expansions gather pace in its aftermath. ...
"Financial cycles have been a key determinant of macroeconomic dynamics and financial stability. Peaks in the financial cycle have tended to signal subsequent periods of banking or financial stress. From this perspective, ongoing or prospective financial cycle downturns in some EMEs and smaller advanced economies pose a risk to the outlook. Such risks can be assessed through early warning indicators of financial distress. One such indicator is the credit-to-GDP gap, defined as the deviation of the private non-financial sector credit-to-GDP ratio from its long-term trend. Another is the debt service ratio (DSR), ie the same sector’s principal and interest payments in relation to income, measured as deviation from the historical average. These indicators have often successfully captured financial overheating and signalled banking distress over medium-term horizons in the past. ... 
"Standard metrics, such as credit-to-GDP gaps, signal financial stability risks in a number of EMEs, including China and other parts of emerging Asia. Gaps are also elevated in some advanced economies, such as Canada, where problems at a large mortgage lender and the credit rating downgrade of six of the country’s major banks highlighted risks related to rising consumer debt and high property valuations. ... Financial cycles in this group are at different stages. In some cases, such as China, the booms are continuing and maturing; in others, such as Brazil, they have already turned to bust and recessions have occurred, although without ushering in a full-blown financial crisis." 

An interrelated problem here is that a lot of the borrowing in the world happens with financial instruments that involve US dollars. When an economy outside the US has large US-dollar denominated debts (whether these debts are private or public sector), that economy is vulnerable to a shift in exchange rates that make it harder to repay such debts, or to a change in financial conditions that makes it harder or more costly to roll over the US-dollar denominated debt.  The BIS writes:
"EMEs face an additional challenge: the comparatively large amount of FX [foreign exchange] debt, mainly in US dollars. Dollar debt has typically played a critical role in EME financial crises in the past, either as a trigger, such as when gross dollar-denominated capital flows reversed, or as an amplifier. The conjunction of a domestic currency depreciation and higher US dollar interest rates can be poisonous in the presence of large currency mismatches. From 2009 to end-2016, US dollar credit to non-banks located outside the United States – a bellwether BIS indicator of global liquidity – soared by around 50% to some $10.5 trillion; for those in EMEs alone, it more than doubled, to $3.6 trillion. ...

"The patterns highlighted above suggest that global US dollar funding markets are likely to be a key pressure point during any future market stress episode. Non-US entities’ US dollar funding needs remain large, posing potentially sizeable rollover risks. They are also concentrated on a rather limited number of major banks. Interconnectedness is another important factor, as dollar funds are sourced from a variety of bank and non-bank counterparties to support both outright US dollar lending and various types of market-based dollar intermediation. In this context, counterparties such as MMMFs [money market mutual funds], insurance companies and large corporates interact with banks in a range of markets, including those for repos and FX swaps. In addition, many of the same banks provide services to entities such as CCPs [central counterparties], which – under stress – can be a source of large liquidity demands."
Of course, pointing to some potential economic danger signs a few years off in the future is not a forecast that another crisis will actually occur. My point is that when we worry about potential causes of the next recession and changes in central bank policy, including Federal Reserve policy, we should be paying a lot less attention to risks of inflation--which seems to be in a coma, if not actually dead and buried--and a lot more attention to risks of financial overheating as they arise around the world.

This ranking is based on our analysis of 14 published reviews and test drives of the Dodge Charger, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.With plenty of power and interior space, the 2012 Dodge Charger is an athletic alternative to competing affordable large cars.
Dodge offers up the Charger with the aforementioned Pentastar V-6 in SE and SXT trim levels, and the engine is good for a respectable 292 horsepower. Those with a healthier appetite can order up the Charger R/T, which comes with a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 rated at 370 horsepower and capable of producing sub-seven-second runs from 0-60 mph. If you still want more, there’s the very-impressive Charger SRT8, which comes with a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 rated at 470 horsepower. The SRT8 will sprint from 0-60 in less than five seconds, delivering a satisfyingly deep exhaust note in the process.
The new Hemi’s intake features active air flaps that vary the ram length based on engine speed, and new variable cam timing increases the duration of the intake-valve opening with the goal of stuffing more air in the cylinder. Fuel economy, for what it’s worth, will be improved over that of the outgoing engine, although no figures have been revealed yet.this below showing the specification and feature for 2012 dodge charger SRT8.

Aggresive And Functional Exterior
Exclusive new front and rear fascias, along with a new rear spoiler, distinguish the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 with a high performance look.
The front grille, grille surround and Dodge crosshair feature high-gloss black finishes and the SRT badge. A newly sculpted hood features a 6.4 L (liter) badge and black air exhauster for added engine cooling.
In the rear, the Charger’s new signature “racetrack” taillamp design with 164 illuminating LEDs receives new 4-inch round dual exhaust tips and an SRT8 decklid badge to boldly show the Street and Racing Technology DNA.
Unique side-sill cladding is painted to match the body color.
A newly designed underbody belly pan features integrated brake ducting to improve cooling and brake fade performance at all four corners.

Suspension and Handling Improvements
Performance handling requires maximum grip, and the all-new Dodge Charger now holds .90 g. Aiding in the fastback four-door car's improved road-holding capabilities is more aggressive front- and rear-camber geometry.
Set at -1.0 degrees in the front and -1.75 degrees in the rear, Dodge Charger is set up for high-speed cornering with its tires leaning inboard at the top relative to the body.
All-new premium hydrobushings combined with new monotube shock absorbers, spring rates and redesigned front and rear multi-link suspension geometries improve performance handling dynamics, smooth braking characteristics and deliver a more comfortable ride.
Among other suspension .5-inch (13 mm) tighter tire-to-fender fitment, a .15-inch (4 mm) lowered overall ride height and larger 19-inch wheels with P235/55R19 all-season performance tires.
Beyond its lower center of gravity, the Dodge Charger R/T AWD also gains improved handling due to new upper- and lower-control arms and shock-absorber bushings. In addition new half shafts feature high-precision bearing units that are sealed for added quality and durability.
Transmitting the Dodge Charger's maximum grip to the driver is an all-new electro-hydraulic power steering (EHPS) system that features 25 percent quicker steering, more precise road feel and improved on-center tracking while reducing steering noise and fuel consumption.

Occupant Safety
Every Charger comes standard with dual front, front side and front and rear curtain airbags in addition to a driver knee airbag. Traction and stability control systems are also fitted.

          Nissan GT-R 2012   


The Nissan GT-R 2012 is an icon of Nissan's pioneer spirit; it invented the concept of the "multi-performance super car" and made high-performance vehicles accessible to anyone, anytime, anywhere. Today, the Nissan GT-R continues to evolve; this latest version has improved features in terms of performance, efficiency and refinement to provide further excitement to drivers and passengers.

Interior Design and Special Features

The rather austere cabin of the 2012 Nissan GT-R is meant to convey an impression of performance and technology. The front seats have prominent bolsters and faux-suede upholstery inserts to keep occupants firmly located during high-G maneuvers, yet they remain comfortable during long-distance drives. The interior itself is well-constructed, with plenty of soft-touch materials, and most controls have a solid, positive feel. Opting for the Black Edition spices up the interior's appearance significantly.
The navigation screen can be used to display a variety of parameters, such as G-force during cornering, steering input, gear position and lap times. If this all sounds a bit video gamelike, there's a good reason. This interface has been designed by Polyphony Digital, the developers of the popular Gran Turismo series of driving simulation games.
Entering and exiting the GT-R takes no more gymnastic aptitude than that required by more conventional cars -- a rarity among high-performance exotics. The rear seats are much smaller and difficult to access, but they are adequate for child-sized passengers. Trunk space is commendable for this type of car, providing a deep well that can accommodate up to 8.8 cubic feet of cargo.

          AN AMERICAN IN PARIS Will Grace Starlight Stage This July   

An American in Paris, the most-awarded new musical of 2015 and winner of four Tony Awards, will make its Kansas City debut at Starlight Theatre on July 11-16. The national touring production is the fourth show of Starlight's 67th Broadway season and one of three brand-new musicals taking the Starlight stage this summer.

Inspired by the Academy-Award winning film, An American in Paris is the romantic story of an American soldier, a mysterious French girl and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war. Directed and choreographed by 2015 Tony Award winner Christopher Wheeldon, the musical features the music and lyrics of brothers George and Ira Gershwin and a book by Craig Lucas.

In a post-World War II Paris, American soldier Jerry Mulligan is awestruck by the beautiful ballerina Lise, triggering his decision to stay in the city and explore his passion for painting. From that magical moment, Jerry becomes engulfed in a whirlwind of new experiences, friendships and romances.

"Between the old-fashioned Parisian charm and the modern reimagining of a classic film onstage, An American in Paris provides audiences with the best of both worlds," said Rich Baker, Starlight President and CEO. "Young or old, musical buff or not, everyone will find something to love in this show."

The lead roles of Jerry Mulligan and Lise Dassin are played by McGee Maddox (National Ballet of Canada) and Sara Esty (Miami City Ballet). Joining them in the principal cast are Etai Benson (Wicked) as Adam Hochberg, Emily Ferranti (Wicked, Dreamgirls) as Milo Davenport, Gayton Scott (Gypsy, The Women) as Madame Baurel, and Nick Spangler (The Book of Mormon, Rogers + Hammerstein's Cinderella) as Henri Baurel.

The score of An American in Paris features many beloved songs, including "I Got Rhythm," "Liza," "'S Wonderful," "But Not for Me," "I'll Build a Stairway to Paradise," and orchestral music including "Concerto in F," "Second Prelude," "Second Rhapsody/Cuban Overture" and "An American in Paris."

An American in Paris opened to widespread critical acclaim at the Palace Theatre on Broadway in April 2015 after its world premiere at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris. The New York production closed in October 2016 after playing more than 600 performances. A West End production of An American in Paris opened in March 2017 at the Dominion Theatre.

An American in Paris won four 2015 Tony Awards, four Drama Desk Awards, four Outer Critics Circle Awards, the Drama League Award for Best Musical, three Fred and Adele Astaire Awards, and two Theatre World Awards. The musical was included on the Year's Best lists of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, The New Yorker, the Associated Press, The Hollywood Reporter, and The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The Masterworks Broadway Original Broadway Cast recording of An American in Paris was nominated for the Best Musical Theater Album Grammy Award.

          Hilton Honors Is Making Some Minor Award Pricing Adjustments   

Hilton Honors has made some major changes this year, including changing their name (slightly), introducing points pooling, letting select members extend Diamond status by a year, adjusting how they price awards, and introducing new Points & Money awards.

One of the major changes that Hilton Honors made is that they no longer have an award chart with categories. Instead they have variable award pricing, which may seem bad on the surface, but I've actually been impressed by how they've implemented it. When you combine that with Hilton's new Points & Money awards, more members than ever before have the ab
