An icon of the far right has died. According to his daughter, Sarah Weaver, Randy Weaver passed on Wednesday. He was a key player in a deadly standoff at #RubyRidge in #Idaho
"Love you always Dad....
"See ya next time I see ya"
January 3, 1948 - May 11, 2022"
The standoff, covered by reporting legend (and friend) Bill Morlin, gave the radical, anti-government right a rallying cry after U.S. Marshals killed Weaver's wife, Vicki, and son, Sam, during the standoff. A Marshal, William Degan, also died.
The standoff between Weaver and the Marshals also is thought to have inspired other anti-government radicals, including #LasVegas shooter Stephen Craig Paddock

We @JBREC just surveyed 400+ flippers about #fixandflip conditions in partnership with Flatiron Realty Capital and @SundaeHQ.
Key takeaway: There is a TON of competition for deals right now.
#LasVegas flipper: “Market is oversaturated with inexperienced investors due to an increase of “gurus.” Supply is low, demand is high, and prices are inflated 20%+ over ARV. Not sustainable.”
#Phoenix flipper: “Phoenix is a very active market with home prices on the rise. The competition is aggressive.”

Later that same month, the bone fide heavyweight Caesar’s Entertainment began a suspended campaign of removing table games from its multiple #casinos in #LasVegas.

From Harrah’s to the Flamingo to Cromwell, table games have been ripped out of the casino floor… and replaced by slots, video poker, and other electronic offerings. It’s a major change taking place at multiple locations at the same time. So where and why does such a trend come about? So why are so many table games being removed and replaced with machines? And why now?

The cold fact of it is machines don’t require an hourly wage. They don’t take vacations, or sick days, or breaks for a cigarette or a meal. They don’t unionize.

A company from #LasVegas called Fortune Coin manufactured the first video slot in 1976 – a predecessor to modern-day online slots widely popular today. Popularity, however, was not the word to use when talking about the very first of the #videoslot machines. Fitted inside a full-size cabinet, the father of slots came with a 19 inch Sony Trinitron TV. The usual slot machine functions and control options were operated on a series of ‘logic boards’ connected to the whopping display.… Such a contraption was a far cry from the ordinary mechanical slot machines and not everyone was a fan. General casino-loving public welcomed the new invention with a fair share of scepticism.

Home builder survey results are in for full month of December. Top themes: 1) Still a ton of demand for new homes. 2) Rampant construction material & labor shortages. 3) Bit of chatter on possible margin compression several quarters ahead. Market commentary to follow…
#Atlanta builder: “Have virtually no available inventory & huge backlog of 1,000+ units going in to 2022. Still metering sales in most communities, where the demand of waiting buyers still outnumbers our supply.”
#LasVegas builder: “Busiest orders for December I can remember in a long time.”

@GovSisolak @AaronDFordNV @ClarkCountyNV Why do we allow Hotels/Casinos or any business, to charge their employees to park in garages, they own, for work? That should be illegal. They are taking pay out of their workers mouths so they do not have to pay full wages

And while we are at it we need laws limiting parking garage fees. I went to visit friends on Downtown this weekend and nowhere was it displayed they raised it to $50! $50 for 3 hours of parking. I spent $32 for 4 hours on two Caesar's properties the day before.

It's obscene.
Does not even cover what locals are being charged for event parking at Allegiant - I have seen receipts from friends of $100-$150 to park! That only hurts locals.

Why should someone with a car be penalized $150 to see a show? This is not acceptable.

Just published September home builder survey results (sales, prices, costs, communities, etc.). Big themes: 1) Supply chain, supply chain, supply chain. 2) Monthly price hikes no longer the norm. 3) Some of the hottest markets sounding toppy. Market commentary to follow…
#Austin builder: “No end in sight for labor & material issues. Told by logistics guy last week that his company believes it will take at least a year to get the supply chain back to working.”
#Austin builder: “Availability of windows has limited closings this year & availability of appliances has caused closings to slide to a later month. Availability of paint is stressing Q4 closings & causing even more bunching toward late in the year.”

THREAD: Vigils across America demanding action against #Pakistan for its inhuman treatment of Hindus & other minorities. The @chingariproject calls on all communities to join this movement to bring an end to abduction, forced conversion to Islam & rape of young girls in Pakistan.
Every day, in #Pakistan, 3 girls from the minority communities are kidnapped, forcibly converted and "married" off, often as 2nd and 3rd wives of Muslim men.
Many of these girls are as young as 12 and the men they are married off to, in their 30s and 40s. 2/n
Vigil participants in #Tampa #Florida, shared details of the atrocities committed on #Hindu, #Sikh and other minorities in #Pakistan. Many onlookers said that while they aware of Pakistan's toxic role in Afghanistan, few had heard about the crimes being committed within Pakistan.

How Vegas became a city like no other.

For what was for so long a small town, Las Vegas always has been about big things.
The gangsters and the gaming pioneers were larger than life.
The entertainers were the biggest and the brightest of stars.
Even the bombs were huge, as towering mushroom clouds from aboveground atomic testing in the 1950s were as iconic as the flickering neon and the stretch of skyscraper resorts that would become the signatures of this desert oasis.
That colorful past and its rich characters are captured in a new presentation on the Las Vegas Sun Web site, the History of Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada featuring videos, interactive maps, a documentary film series and historical photos and stories.

Companies tied to housing revising guidance due to supply chain. Commentary from our builder survey this month indicates things getting worse before they get better. Homes sitting, waiting for materials (dead days). Big delays in windows. Delta outbreaks. In sum, a crapshoot. 🧵
#Nashville builder: “It's a crap shoot. Some municipalities will issue permits in 1 week, & others are 6-9 months behind. Supply chain is a mess. Windows are now 7 months out, cabinets are 6 months out, etc.”
#Chicago builder: “Build cycle increased due to backordered materials including bathtubs, appliances, & ceramic tile. Trades are much more limited in availability & now have some ‘dead days’ with no activity.”

The State Board of Health meeting is underway. The board is considering whether to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for public college and university students:… #nevada #nshe #lasvegas #reno
The proposed changes include a Nov. 1 deadline for proof of COVID-19 vaccination in order to enroll.
If approved, emergency regulations would be effective for 120 days and would have to go through a more rigorous public process in order to become permanent.
Nevada System of Higher Education Chancellor Melody Rose: Nevada law is clear the State Board of Health has the authority to make the decision about vaccinations and the NSHE Board of Regents is “eagerly awaiting your direction.”

I’ve been at Centennial Hills Hospital since Saturday night, this hospital is so full that even though I have had surgery I have not seen the inside of a room during my stay. I’m in an overflow wing with nurses that normally don’t work this area. I’ve had a different
Nurse every 12 hours because they just don’t have enough people to cover this area. Each nurse is in charge of 10 plus patients each with unique needs. One nurse showed me 15 text messages she got during one shift from other hospitals begging her to come help. I’ve barely seen
The doctors that are in charge of my care. One tech in charge of CT scans told me he was the only one in charge of doing the scans for the ENTIRE hospital. The night I came EVERY seat in the ER was taken. I saw people with IVs in the halls waiting for a room that isn’t coming

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.”
