  6. Demonetized: Steven Crowder has been tried and convicted by YouTube of being a conservative Conservatives fell for a trap. It’s been over a decade in the making and few of us saw it coming until it was too late. To be fair, this trap was actually so well executed and seemingly coordinated that it’s actually impressive how well it worked. Now, the walls that have been around us the whole time are finally starting to close in. The trap was to believe that even hyper-leftists in the tech industry would be fair when it came to the use of their platforms. By “fair,” I mean they would accept that there are views that differ from their preferred progressive standpoints and those views are worthy of being expressed on their platforms. For a time, this was true. But as the giants such as Google in search, Facebook and Twitter in social media, and YouTube for video grew to the point that they’re essentially unchallenged and virtually invincible, they’ve now changed their tune. The worst crime anyone who uses their services can commit is to be conservative. Steven Crowder is learning it again and again with the most recent incident happening today. Many of us make our living by creating and sharing content online. Unfortunately, the platforms that we work on, including YouTube, have revealed in recent years that there is a proper way of thinking in their eyes, and if you dare to offer a perspective that challenges this proper way of thinking, you’re a horrible human being who doesn’t deserve to live, let alone earn a penny from them. Like I said, this was a brilliant trap, properly executed over the years to draw us in and then shut us down once we became dependent and their competition was suppressed. That’s where we are today. . . . leaves us with two options. Option 1: Fight for our right to be right This is what most of us do today. We produce content and then fight tooth-and-nail to get it the traffic it needs. Once it gets the traffic, we then have to fight to keep it monetized. It’s a daily grind, but it’s effective to some extent. Nevertheless, it’s not only a waste of time but it’s a benefit to the people who are trying to suppress us in the first place. YouTube makes money off Crowder’s content whether they pay him for it or not. That’s the nature of YouTube. If he sucks people onto the platform to laugh as he “owns libs,” there’s a good chance those people he sucked in will then watch other videos with ads. Just because they demonetize his content doesn’t mean they’re not making money off it. So if option 1 sucks, then what’s the alternative? Option 2: Pick up our balls and take them to a new playground This is the option that invariably gets offered by scholarly Twitter users any time something like this happens. But it’s not that easy. I’ve tried multiple ad networks, affiliates, crowdfunding, and even outright begging and it doesn’t yield a fraction of what Google ads deliver. And frankly, that’s not enough either, but it’s more. For Crowder, whose content thrives on YouTube, it’s not easy for him to become a Vimeo star and expect to reach the same people or get nearly enough money from it. Or any video platform for that matter. I’m not sure what BlazeTV or DailyWire pay, but outside of their paid services, much of there content goes on… YouTube. Working on a third option I’ve been reaching out to conservatives about Proper Narrative, LLC. I hope this can help encourage conservative content producers to do what they’re doing by rewarding them beyond their standard revenue sources. It’s still early stage at this point, but one never knows when the right call will come in. Final Thoughts Until one of the two (or three) options becomes clearly the best choice, conservatives have to do what we can to support each other. To the digital media world, we’re the enemy. Nobody said being conservative in 2019 would be easy. > https://noqreport.com/2019/04/24/demonetized-steven-crowder-tried-convicted-youtube-conservative/

  9. Delingpole: Sir Roger Scruton Just Won a Landmark Victory in the Culture Wars Conservative philosopher Sir Roger Scruton has won a spectacular victory against the New Statesman – the left-wing magazine which interviewed him and then tried to smear him as a racist, bigot and anti-Semite. The smear — a result of selective editing of the interview and malicious tweeting by the magazine’s deputy editor George Eaton — cost Scruton his job on a government advisory body. Among those who initially condemned Scruton for his alleged remarks were various Conservatives, including MPs Tom Tugendhat, Johnny Mercer and James Brokenshire, and former Chancellor of the Exchequer turned freesheet editor George Osborne. But now journalist Douglas Murray has got hold of the original interview recording and analysed the transcripts in the Spectator. What becomes immediately clear is that Scruton was badly misrepresented. Not only is Eaton shown repeatedly trying to provoke Scruton into voicing provocative opinions he doesn’t actually hold, but it is also evident that the version of events Eaton subsequently presented in a series of trolling tweets bears little relation to Scruton’s measured, thoughtful discourse during the interview. The fall out of this will be huge. Indeed, it is hard to overstate what a triumph this represents for free speech, sound thinking and honest journalism against the malign and increasingly devious and censorious forces of the modern left. Sir Roger Scruton, Britain’s most erudite, courageous, distinguished conservative philosopher and man of letters, emerges with his reputation burnished and enhanced. George Eaton, the New Statesman deputy editor largely responsible for the smear, has been exposed as a liar, schemer and manipulator who put dirty-tricks political activism before honest journalism. The New Statesman has lost much of the credibility as a respectable journal for thinking leftists. The squishy Conservative MPs who endorsed the witch hunt have trashed, possibly forever, their chances of being taken seriously as leadership candidates The Conservative government has been once more been exposed as cowardly, unconservative, all too willing to throw its champions to the wolves in a tragically misguided effort to curry favour with its leftist enemies. The mainstream media – including Conservative-leaning publications such as the Telegraph, the Mail and the Sun – also emerges with its credibility tarnished. None of these publications gave Scruton a sympathetic hearing. The Sun especially barded its reportage of the story with viciously critical editorialising which implied that Scruton was a contemptible, dangerously right-wing figure. In revealing detail we see exactly how Social Justice Warriors like Eaton are able to whip up social media storms in order to misrepresent and destroy conservative adversaries. === George Osborn exposed as scumbag - Good ! Scruton & JBP did a great interview / discussion together xx x
  10. Daily Presidential Tracking Poll Voters Say Impeachment Unlikely from Mueller Report Despite Media’s Efforts Voters think Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report is unlikely to help congressional Democrats impeach President Trump, but they expect reporters to try to hurt the president with it if they can. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 58% of Likely U.S. Voters say the findings in the Mueller report are unlikely to lead to Trump’s impeachment, with 33% who say it’s Not At All Likely. Thirty-three percent (33%) disagree and say the report is likely to help impeach the president, but that includes only 14% who feel it’s Very Likely. The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove.
  11. TZA wasn't on my radar. But I looked back at your previous option trades and I did see you use calls on it. TBH I'd rather just buy it outright but I can't buy US ETFs due to EU regs. Ok no mirroring then, it was just a thought. I do wonder if there's an opportunity to take advantage of here, or will the stock market go parabolic first, in which case there are at least a few more weeks of this rally to go. Perhaps sell in May and go away?

  13. recently, i have been using calls on tza, have you looked at that? (do you see the obvious trade here? I missed it. I was sleeping) I am Nervous about you mirroring my trade, especially for the exit I am in an unfavorable time zone for trading the us markets. For instance now, i just happened to wake up at before 3am. How can I worry about when you exit a trade? You may have more & better exit opportuities than I have
  14. Ok cool. I'd be prepared to mirror any SPY trade, as I have never done it before, but I still want to try while the index is at all-time highs. Or I can wait till it crosses 300+. Anyhow, I'd need some guidance on how to pick a strike and expiry. Are there charts of the options and are the SPY options traded on exchange or just OTC? So many questions haha. I at least know a smidge from a past job at an options dealer, but never learnt the strategies or read Hull. Also gonna ask my options dealing friend at Citi maybe he'll know something.
  15. Finally, A big drop in SOXX today : 211.09 Change: -4.60 Open: 214.97 High: 215.28 Low: 210.13 Volume: 247,398 Percent Change: -2.13%
  16. Yeah, I am thinking the timing may be about right I have been waiting for a drop in SOXX >
  17. Any ideas about buying SPY puts DrB? Or maybe waiting for it to go higher, although it's already gone up so much already. I'm not really familiar with choosing an expiry, strike price and option valuations, how would you choose whether to buy ITM or not?

  20. AyalaLand's stock price JUMPED on this news ALI / Ayalaland .... update : Last : P 49.50 +1.50 Market players previously raised concerns about the high level of public ownership and taxation issues required for REITs. The SEC has since favored a lower public float of 33%, while the 12% tax on transfer of real properties has been removed under RA 10963, or the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion Act that took effect in January last year. However, the SEC has yet to come out with the revised guidelines as the Department of Finance wanted assurance that the funds raised through REITs will not be spent outside the country. “If they don’t revise, we’re fine because we’re ready to accept. If they do revise we’re also fine. As a company, we said let’s just go ahead and do it,” Mr. Jalandoni said when asked whether they will still push through should the SEC release new guidelines. “The primary reason is we just want to move forward and test the framework. It’s good for the investing public to have these options.” Shares in ALI jumped 2.13% or P1 to close P48 each at the stock exchange on Wednesday. > https://www.bworldonline.com/ayala-land-plans-to-raise-p25-26b-in-countrys-first-reit-offer/ 2010 : A previous effort was not fruitful : link
  21. NOW... Ayala Land plans to raise P25-26B in country’s first REIT offer AYALA LAND, Inc. (ALI) is preparing what could turn out to be the country’s first real estate investment trust (REIT) offering, where it plans to raise about P25-26 billion. “We filed with the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) an Ayala Land REIT; we’re still thinking what the name should be. The intent is to list based on the current regulations which is a minimum public ownership of 67%,” ALI Commercial Business Group Head Jose Emmanuel H. Jalandoni said in a media briefing after the company’s annual shareholders’ meeting in Makati Wednesday. Mr. Jalandoni said the company has filed for the name change of an existing company, One dela Rosa Development, Inc., into Ayala Land REIT Inc., which will now serve as the vehicle for the REIT listing. ALI has also filed amendments to its articles of incorporation to reflect its intention to file for REITs. “We feel like it’s a very good vehicle for us. We’ll be able to recycle some capital, but we’re also looking at it as a new business model for us to be able to grow this REIT into another leg for the organization,” ALI President and Chief Executive Officer Bernard Vincent O. Dy said in the same briefing. The REIT will be anchored on ALI’s office towers located in the Makati Central Business District. Mr. Jalandoni said they can also use the firm to acquire third-party assets. “It doesn’t mean that the only assets that we will put in this vehicle are the Ayala Land assets. We could actually explore third-party assets as well to be used into this REIT vehicle,” Mr. Jalandoni said. The company has engaged the Bank of the Philippine Islands as the transaction’s underwriter. ‘LET’S JUST GO AHEAD AND DO IT’ Should the listing push through, this will be the first REIT vehicle in the country 10 years after Republic Act No. 9856, otherwise known as The Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) Act of 2009, was enacted.

  25. Top 10 earthquake resistant buildings of the world By Neeti Kaushik January 12, 2016 The mere mention of earthquake brings images of upheaval, devastation and disaster. Not only does it turn an entire landscape into shambles, but also bring lives of thousands and millions to a complete standstill. These lateral forces produced by seismic waves are not a new acquaintance to humankind, but rather has been plaguing mankind right from the Bronze Age, having destroyed some impressive cities with sophisticated architecture. And, this dilemma has only gotten worse with the growing urban skyline housing throngs of people in its soaring structures. Now the question arises, Can we not create a constitution rugged enough to withstand the pressures of tectonic activity and save our people and environment? Fortunately, our scientists, engineers and architects are burning the midnight oil to help devise a number of clever technologies, to ensure that houses and skyscrapers can survive the brutal lashes of an earthquake and save the inhabitants of such buildings safe and unharmed. We have designed 10 of such buildings which have adopted terror-thwarting technologies, some of which are new and some are still being tested, but all in all work towards a common goal of keeping environment safe from this natural calamity. Utah State Capitol For the U.S. state, the Utah State Capitol is the house of government. Being susceptible to earthquakes, the Utah State Capitol installed its own base isolation system, which was completed in 2007. The base isolation system involves the building to be resting on a network of 280 isolators made of laminated rubber sitting on the buildings’ foundation. These lead-rubber bearings are attached to the building and its foundation with the help of steel plates. In the event of an earthquake, these isolator bearings, being strong vertically and not horizontally, allow the building to rock gently back and forth, resulting in moving the foundation of the building but not moving the structure above it. Sabiha Gökçen International Airport Taipei 101 Taipei 101, formerly known as the Taipei World Financial Center – is a landmark super soaring skyscraper in Xinyi District, Taipei, and Republic of China. Originally deemed as one of the tallest buildings in 2004, this 1,667-foot-high skyscraper used a tuned mass damper to withstand typhoons and earthquakes. This architectural beauty has an enormous mass near the top of the structure which is suspended by steel cables and in the event of an earthquake, this mass damper works as a pendulum moving itself in the opposite direction of the swaying building, thus, dissipating the energy and vibrational effects caused by earthquakes and typhoons. This diminishes the dynamic response of the structure in the event of any seismic activity. Taipei 101 houses one of the world’s largest tuned mass dampers in the form of a gold-colored ball weighing about 730-tons at the heart of its structure. The Burj Khalifa The Yokohama Landmark Tower The U.S Bank Tower US Bank Tower, formerly Library Tower and First Interstate Bank World Center is located at 633 West Fifth Street in downtown Los Angeles, California. Being the tallest building in the earthquake-prone state of California, the U.S Bank Tower stands 1,018-feet high, and contains 1.3 million square feet of office space. The building was constructed to withstand an 8.3 magnitude earthquake, which scientists believe is stronger than the San Andreas. The Transamerica Pyramid The Transamerica Pyramid, the tallest skyscraper in the San Francisco skyline, is another building with earthquake resisting abilities, which it owes to its solid structural engineering. This tower stands 853 feet high and was originally built in a manner to allow its neighboring buildings to enjoy sunlight in spite of its soaring height. This magnificent structure sits on a steel and concrete foundation, which is designed to move with the earthquakes. Also, it uses diagonal structures which get inserted into the rectangular areas of the building frame thus giving it more support. It’s the use of these terror-thwarting measures due to which this tall tower has even survived a 7.1 magnitude earthquake in 1989 that caused this 48-story high tower to shake for over a minute, but it still remain unaffected.
  26. Anchor Skysuites in BGC lost water from a rooftop pool when the Earthquake hit Why do some buildings survive earthquakes when others fail? Why do some buildings survive earthquakes when others fail? ... Earthquake resistance can and is, in many cases, built into the design of the building. It is the materials used that cause the problems. Any building MUST be able to withstand the horizontal forces inflicted on its foundations by an Earthquake.
  27. FALLING GLASS may be the biggest risk in or near Tall buildings Glass shards in motion can be like knives What is the safest place to be during an earthquake? ...From this came our belief that a doorway is the safest place to be during an earthquake. True- if you live in an old, unreinforced adobe house. In modern houses, doorways are no stronger than any other part of the house. You are safer under a table. Is it better to stay inside or outside during an earthquake? Don't run outside. Trying to run in an earthquake is dangerous, as the ground is moving and you can easily fall or be injured by debris or glass. Running outside is especially dangerous, as glass, bricks, or other building components may be falling. Again, you are much safer to stay inside and get under a table.
  28. 5 Things You Shouldn't Do During an Earthquake 1. Don't Hide Under a Bed. The small space underneath a bed will be made even smaller if the ceiling collapses on it. ... 2. Don't Climb Under a Desk—Crouch Beside It. The same principle of avoiding a bed applies to furniture that appears roomier. ... 3. Steer Clear of the Stairs. ... 4. Skip the Doorway. ... 5. Flee From Windows.
