    Bit of data used in financing real estate has metamorphosed into big datasets

    in Books

    The discussion this Friday will focus on the historical bit of data originally used in financing real estate mortgage in the 1800s. This bit of data significantly became the nucleus of understanding the etymology of real estate and its present connotations. Most importantly, the bit of data has metamorphosed into big data sets used within the present real estate transactions (scan through here at http://tinyurl.com/lz45vxn). Information in real estate that were hard to come by or hard deciphered are now readily available to estate agents, buyers, sellers and investors.  Explaining and navigating through these capricious sea changes of big data and its global implications on real estate will be the congenial twin of Internet of Things #IoT and Industrial Internet of Things #IIoT.  Read more inside here at http://tinyurl.com/o52lwvm

    So Barry is almost better from being paralyzed by Zoom, but his head is really not in the game!  He's lying to Patty, and not even covering his tracks very well... so perfect time for Gorilla Grodd to come back -- and kidnap Caitlin no less!  Time for Harry Wells of Earth-2 to throw on a Reverse Flash costume and give the Eobard persona the old college try!  But wait, Henry Allen is back, and he might be able to get Barry back in the suit just in time to help the team!

    D Rose Carousel of Dumb Comments & Injuries Continues, GM Pace Starts Cleaning

    in Sports

    On the Chicago Bulls' media day, Derrick Rose spoke about his upcoming free agency without being asked about it.  Is Rose actually focusing too much on the money, or is he just bad at speaking to the media?  Why have the Bulls done nothing to help his public speaking inadequacies over the years? 

    Bears first year General Manager Ryan Pace is making moves for the future by completing two trades, waiving one player and signing two more early this week.  Do these moves symbolize the early end of the Bears 2015 season?

    Montrose, CO Talks Broadband Financing Options

    in Internet

    It's full steam ahead as dozens of Colorado communities prepare to pass referenda to take back their rights to build public broadband networks. Top of the planning list is determining how to finance these infrastructure projects.

    Virgil Turner, Director of Innovation and Citizen Engagement for the City of Montrose, joins us to discuss "Show Me the (Hidden) Money for Community Broadband." This new report from host Craig Settles instructs communities how to use different and effective ways to raise money that are triggered by the needs assessment process, a process that every community should be doing.

    Listeners will get great advice about:

    sound financial planning
    developing partnerships with state agencies
    the role of local businesses in broadband fundraising efforts
    enlisting co-ops to enable region wide broadband funding
    local bipartisanship's impact on raising funds

    While it is great to have a single source of funding, communities need financing options because broadband projects are complex and can be expensive. Now is the time for creative communities that believe in thinking outside of the box.

    This newest Community Broadban Snapshot Report is sponsored by Corning and SiFi Network. Some of the tips and advice presented in this broadcast are you just in more detail in Settles' new book, Building the Gigabit City, Vol 2.

    Will Santa Boehner Save the Santa Rally on Wall Street?

    in Finance

    There are multiple deadlines for Congress now through early December, including lifting the Debt Ceiling (Nov. 3, 2015 deadline) and passing the budget (December 11, 2015 deadline). Getting these deals passed without any drama now is very important. Treasury Secretary Lew says that he won't be able to pay bills on November 3, 2015 without action now.


    Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have been meeting with President Obama to come up with a compromise before Boehner splits town on Friday.


    Both sides know there isn't much of a choice on the Debt Ceiling. It must be raised. The only question is when and what kind of budget deal goes along with it. If there isn't a compromise fast, Wall Street will react, as will the credit rating agencies.


    I'll examine the risks and the probabilities, as well as what lies beyond these crises for 2016, which will be the 8th year of the current bull market.
