Land is the most important yet least transparent part of homebuilding. To help, here’s commentary from land brokers across the country per our July survey. Top themes: 1) Builders going further out for deals. 2) Bigger land deals are back. 3) Development delays & lot shortages.
#SaltLakeCity land broker: “You can't get all the lots you need even when you overpay.”
#SanAntonio land broker: “Getting a vaccine approved took less time than getting land entitled.”

A tweet (small thread) to @JaniceDean:
-Your pain is real and your anger is justified.
-You've thought several times over the past 2 yrs #Cuomo was gonna pay & yet he hasn't.
-The media, Cuomo & all the rest used to insult you as "stick to the weather," ...
@JaniceDean 2- Notice they dont eve say that any more.
-They feel they've "outlasted" he criticism.
-Cuomo breaks many laws, he is a hypocrite of the highest order.
-He has ZERO fear of any repercussions, clearly
-He's so brazen as to simply bar the press which is sympathetic to him anyway
3- He does this because he knows, no-matter what he can't lose as things are right now.
-The @gop has already 'designated' their weakest candidate (Zeldin) as the "presumptive choice" How/why could they do this?
-The @NewYorkGOP has shown ZERO fight against Cuomo

Analyzing June new home sales & pricing figures from our monthly builder survey. As one builder noted: “It’s not fun to be a builder anymore.” Lumber relief is nice but pick your poison on other issues. Market commentary from across the country to follow...
#Richmond builder: “It's not fun to be a builder anymore. Cost pressure is killing us. Not only will builders like myself who take 12-24 months to build a house lose margin from increases, but the affordability is becoming a major issue.”
#Atlanta builder: “Costs have driven up prices & we’re no longer preselling. We will not sell a home until frame stage, so our sales numbers are off for June while awaiting framing stage.”

So, for those of you who were expecting an update after I got shot last month, here it is...

First, I want to thank Dr. Mara Schenker (@maraschenker) and her staff at @GradyHealth for repairing my shattered ulna and inserting the metal brace that is getting it healed up.
@maraschenker @GradyHealth She’s done 3,000+ surgeries at the incredible Grady Hospital, many of which involved shootings. Somehow, she maintains this very sunny disposition. Here she is showing off her handiwork (I won't show the original wound...too gross). I'll be showing it off at the next ASC meeting.
Here’s a report of the shooting. Misspelled my name (and let everyone know I'm 55 years old). Contrary to popular opinion, I wasn't out collecting ethnographic data for one of my projects studying criminal decision-making. I was shopping for potting soil.…

🏆🇦🇷 Se viene el #TorneoLPF2021 de @LigaAFA

El Campeonato de 1ª División es la competencia más antigua que disputan los clubes afiliados a @afa. A continuación, una imagen con todos los campeones (año por año) y un resumen de su historia...

HILAZO⬇️ Image
La Asociación del Fútbol Argentino (@afa ) reconoce oficialmente como antecesoras directas a la AAFL (posteriormente AFA, AAF y AAAF), FAF, AAmF y LAF ya que han sido desprendimientos de la misma Asociación fundada por Alexander Watson Hutton en 1893. Aquí, su estatuto📃 Image
Desde entonces se juega de forma ininterrumpida el campeonato de primera liga, siendo el torneo que más años consecutivos lleva disputándose de forma oficial de todos los países afiliados a FIFA🌎 (algunos más longevos tuvieron interrupciones por conflicto bélicos) Image

Uma ressonância magnética mostrou que Trae Young está lidando com uma CONTUSÃO ÓSSEA no pé direito.

A lesão aconteceu em um infeliz acidente. Com 36 segundos para o término do terceiro período, Trae pisou, de forma acidental no pé de um dos árbitros.

Primeiro o que é um contusão óssea ❓
Edema ósseo traduz um contusão óssea. É o inchaço que ocorre na área mais interna dos ossos causando danos o tecido medular dentro do osso.
Qualquer coisa que cause estresse adicional ao osso pode causar edema.

**parte branca ali na seta**
📌Diferentemente dos hematomas na pele, em que há espaço de sobra para o sangue escoar para fora, as contusões ocorrem em uma pequena área, formando “piscinas” de sangue dentro dos ossos devido à restrição de espaço, causando muita dor.

Giuliani's Law License was Suspended to get the #LiberalMedia Buzz before the Election Audits start to Expose the "Gaming of the System" and the Fraud Operations that were hidden behind the China Virus Fear PsyOp

Our Election Processes have been CORRUPT for DECADES

But this is BY DESIGN

Q: Why would the #DemocratCorruptionNetworks OPPOSE #VoterID & Strict Chain of Custody?

A: "Gaming the System" requires flexibility in the Rules, Control of the Local Judges, and Control of the Liberal Media (+ Big Tech)

Here's a housing🧵to chew on over weekend. Mid-June update from 100+home builders across country. 1) rumblings of price ceiling. 2) slightly shrinking pool of qualified buyers. 3) some home releases not selling out immediately. 4) normal summer slowing as vacations take priority.
#Austin builder: “Some interest lists are shrinking & others are not. Seeing buyers who are no longer able or willing to afford the monthly payment. Definitely seeing attrition here. Frustration that prices continued going up without an opportunity to purchase.”
#Dallas builder: “Interest lists are definitely shrinking because of pricing. Some drop off is happening due to price. But the re-sale market is still so tight it hasn’t dropped substantially. Extremely concerned about pricing going forward.”

When the @DollarCars/@thriftycars dearth of staff collides with a resurgence of travelers this is the result — I’m stuck in the longest line experienced in my decades of global travel. #Atlanta
The other agency counters have no lines but most have no cars.
I was duly warned about the rental car shortage a while back and even made my reservation for a 🚗 prior to booking the ✈️to @ATLairport.…

New home sales fell in May, Y/Y & M/M. Theme of the month was sales decline by builder design. Few comments on demand slowing or skittish buyers, even w/new home prices +18% Y/Y nationally (survey record). Builder commentary from across the country per our survey to follow...
#Nashville builder: “Gapped out. Sales resume in June as new communities & phases start to open. By moving ability to contract on inventory homes later to finished drywall stage (window installation stage previously), expect sales to show continued decline. Decline by design.”
#Charlotte builder: “Paused sales from mid-May to mid-June in all communities & will selectively release homes for sale in the last 2 weeks of June & coming months. Sales look lower vs. last month but was capped due to limited lot availability & no inventory.”

Now on @netflix, 'And Tomorrow The Entire World,' looks at a group of German antifascists amid the rise of a neo-fascist party. The film mirrors others like The East by failing to challenge tropes about social movements while advancing a centrist "both sides" narrative. A thread.
'Entire World' could have been an interesting film as it deals with antifascists fighting the far-Right during the rise of a neo-fascist party in Germany - which currently is happening with the growth of the AfD. Its loosely based on director Julia von Heinz's own experiences.
However the film itself serves more as a cautionary tale - not about the rise of fascism - but instead about upper-middle class youth being led astray down a path of escalating violence and 'extremism' that paints "both sides" as no different from the other.

Here's May mid-month home builder channel check I hinted at earlier. Builders are pushing prices w/little pushback, though some starting. Some builders are using price escalators & highest/best offer. Many limiting pre-sales, shifting to spec, & pricing home later in build cycle.
#Dallas builder: “Not selling build jobs in May, starting specs only, and not selling until drywall. Costs are too out of control for us to take the inflation risk on build jobs. So sales are way down.”
#SanAntonio builder: “Only selling specs at Sheetrock stage. Last month, it was frame stage.”

#BAPS के समर्थक बता रहे हैं कि गलती उनकी नहीं, बल्कि एक अमेरिकन कंपनी- 'कुन्हा कंस्ट्रक्शन' की है। हम में से कई मज़दूर BAPS के लिए काम करने के लिए #NewJersey के साथ- #Atlanta, #Houston, #Chicago भी गए हैं। ज़मीनी सच्चाई-
घटनाक्रम- 1. रोज़गार का ऑफर राजस्थान में मिलता है 2. BAPS के अहमदाबाद ऑफिस में ज़रूरी दस्तावेज़ीकरण 3. US निर्माण साइट पर कारावास 4. काम की शर्तों पर बातचीत। इस दौरान मजदूर BAPS के प्रतिनिधि से ही बात करते हैं- 'कुन्हा' के बारे में कभी नहीं सुना।
बिचौलिये पर आरोप लगाना बहुत पुरानी तरकीब है। ताकतवर पूँजीवादी, छोटे उद्योग/बिचौलियों पर इलज़ाम लगा कर हट जाते हैं। इसलिए ज़रूरी है कि हम साथ खड़े रहे।

Defendants claim that BAPS is innocent, & Cunha Construction middleman, an American company is the one who went rogue.
Several among us have been to BAPS #Atlanta, #Houston, #Chicago, besides #New Jersey sites. REALITY CHECK from the ground - a thread
CHRONOLOGY -1 Offer of employment in #Rajasthan, 2. Workers made to sign papers at BAPS #Ahmedabad office 3. Confinement at US construction sites, 4 rules over work conditions. In all of this workers interface is with BAPS representatives, never heard of #Cunha
Blaming the #middleman is the oldest trick of trade. Powerful industries get away by dumping blame on the smaller fish. So it is important that we say together #BAPSnotmiddleman

The good people of #Georgia should continue to press their representatives to Shift to a Maine-style Allocation of Electoral College Votes

The #DemocratCorruptionNetworks and the partners in the #LiberalMedia will ALWAYS try to CHEAT in Atlanta
#DemocratCorruptionNetworks Always Play Games in Areas where they have Dominant Control -- seek to Run Up the Score and Tip a Winner Takes All State

#Miami & #Broward County, #Florida
Strong #ElectionIntegrity Reforms are Just One Part of the Game to STOP the #DemocratCorruptionNetworks

We must assume they will find a way to CHEAT. And we must minimize the threat of Tipping an entire State by Cheating in a few Key Cities as was done in 2020

Was just thinking there were few mass shootings during the pandemic.

Unfortunately, it looks like we're getting "back to normal" now.

This thread has some of my thoughts on mass shootings, #guns , & #GunReform through the years:

#Boulder #Atlanta…

"Guns make gun owners feel safer"

"...while a few mass shooters in history have had serious mental illnesses, the more typical shooter has experienced the kind of milder difficulties with mood, anxiety, and social interactions with which most of us have some personal familiarity."…
