Y'all ready 2 get this #PurpleParty started? @Prince entered @Sunset Sound early May '82 to record what would become his longest electro-jam #Automatic. At over 9 minutes sending the project dubbed 1999 he began in Jan into unintentional Double LP territory
He arrived with clearly something on his mind as everything in #Automatic feels like a confession An urgent unsettling genuine desperation unfolding with lyrical themes of emotion as technology. Lockstep speak-singing in the same pattern of his drum machine.
Both principal themes at the time, spiritual & profane come into play, the latter on full display when he makes cavalier declaration of a sexual favor, the listener & backing singer @JillJones simultaneously snap to as she excitedly responds โ€œYou will?!โ€

Ok #Houston we need to have a talk about gentrification v. revitalization. And while I hate to target a specific person, this example is egregiously bad. #HouNews 1/
Revitalization is being in new infrastructure while centering the community already in place, making sure legacy residents can stay in place, & local business are the norm instead of chains. 2/
Gentrification is โ€œdiscoveringโ€ a neglected, usually non-white community, and calling it a blank slate.

Exhibit A is *this guy.*

Let me start with #insulin. In the 1970s, insulin was extracted from the pancreas of animals. In the 1980s, @Genentech, working with Eli Lilly (@LillyPad), developed insulin using a new technology that I call #PrecisionFermentation. It wasnโ€™t animal insulin. It was human insulin.
The mainstream would say: โ€œhealth care is slow, it canโ€™t be disrupted.โ€

Well, hereโ€™s the S-curve of #PrecisionFermentation human insulin. Human insulin disrupted animal insulin in about 13 years.
#PrecisionFermentation is a concept that I coined in my @rethink_x report โ€˜Rethinking Food and Agricultureโ€™ with @CatherineTubb in September 2019.

Inbox: statement from Stop #Houston Murders PAC.
While every soft-on-crime judge didnโ€™t lose, we made inroads, helping to defeat some Democrat judges.โ€ Image
Interestingly, there were a few GOP challengers who appear to have won: Tami Pierce has 50.06% over DaSean Jones for the 180th criminal district court.
Kristin Guiney holds 50.21% over Gemayel Haynes for the 183rd, and GOP candidates hold leads in county criminal courts 2, 3, and 14.

Home builder commentary from our survey this month was about as negative as I've seen to date. Here's some of the market color that jumped out...
#OklahomaCity builder: "Biggest challenge is your customers who just closed their home and see you drop prices by $30,000."
#Jacksonville builder: "Buying land at the top of the market and having to pull every incentive lever to sell is not a recipe for success. We'll cut starts ~60% to 70% in 2023."

โ€œHousing is significantly affected by these higher rates.โ€
-Jay Powell today about the Fedโ€™s impact on housing

Every month our team surveys 1,000+ agents across the US on what they're seeing in their local markets.

Short ๐Ÿงต on local housing markets from our monthly survey:
#Houston, TX: โ€œHome prices have most first-time home buyers priced out of home ownership. It's even worse with the higher interest rates decreasing what the buyers can qualify for.โ€
#Denver, CO: โ€œCost of living [and] interest rate [increases] are keeping most buyers from buying.โ€

๐ŸงตThread on the gaslighting taking place regarding @TXsecofstate Forensic Audit Division (FAD) letter to #HarrisCounty Elections Administrator Clifford Tatum in #Houston.
The 15-page letter w/docs was sent Tuesday, but someone leaked it to a reporter who then posted 2 pages and misled the public about its full contents. That person instead focused on the Texas Secretary of State sending the inspectors to Harris County, but...

Per a 1997 state law, the SOS is required to send inspectors to any county upon the request of 15 or more voters and has been sending them to Harris County, the stateโ€™s most populous, and many others for years.

Commission includes Harris County Judge, County Clerk, Tax Assessor Collector, and the chairs of the county's Democratic and Republican parties.
Note: the clerk and tax assessor collector, both elected officials, would have been in charge of elections in the county, but in 2020 commissioners court voted 3-2 to use an appointed elections administrator instead.

Lots of confusing terms used in #Texas politics: to clarify, a tax rate that is above the "no-new-revenue" rate means rate payers will pay more next year than last year. #Taxes
But the "no-new-revenue" rate does not necessarily mean the government entity will collect the same amount; in most cases next year they will collect more revenue due to new properties added to the tax rolls.
Even if the tax rate is lower next year than this year, if your appraised value is higher, you will pay more in taxes this year over last year.

Harris County #Houston special meeting and public hearing on tax increase now beginning w/livestream here:โ€ฆ
The court's 3 Democrats are present, the 2 Republicans are not. They have quorum to vote on anything except approving the tax increase.
Today they must decide whether or not to post notice of a compromise tax rate. So far, the only rate they've posted is the original tax rate the two Republicans object to.

Ironing out kinks in the viz but here are #Chiefs vs #Cardinals receiving stats to tide you over.

Juju looks promsing, MVS isn't a thing but playing over Hardman in 2 WR sets, don't worry about Skyy.

Hollywood will be fine, Ertz part time coming off injury, idk about Dortch.
#Steelers @ @Bengals

Diontae will be fine, really strong Pat F showing, meh from Claypool and Pickens.

Chase is a star, prob don't care about Boyd even with Tee sidelined, even pre-Higgins injury it was firmly the Chase show.
Air yards data looking a bit suspect for a few teams, going to pause for now

August home builder sentiment and sales/prices/starts survey results are in. Top themes: 1) Home price cuts along with other incentives are helping sales (for now). 2) Supply chain is healing as demand drops and builders quickly slow housing starts. Market commentary to followโ€ฆ
#Austin builder: โ€œA lot of spec inventory to work through. August was a very poor month for sales across the board. Cancellations spiked from July and buyers showed no sense of urgency.โ€
#Baltimore builder: โ€œJumbo loan rates below 5% are helping buyers move forward in that segment.โ€
