For today, I’m just throwing some random stuff together and we’ll see where it goes.
The Giants – Even year and I’m up – I’m Down – I’m up then I’m down again

First of all, I’m still pissed that the Giants lost game 4 at home. I must admit that I was not overly optimistic that they were going anywhere this year. Every time that I counted them out they would prove me wrong. The season started and I was not excited, I didn’t think that they had done enough in the off season. Dennard Span, Jeff Samardzija and Johnny Cueto were good additions, but we missed out on Zack Greinke. We still had Posey, Pence, Belt, Pagan, Crawford, Duffy and Panik and of course Madison Bumgarner, so we should be competitive.

They come out

of the gates, so-so, win some and lose some, then they catch fire… May, June and up until the All-star break they are winning. They are getting through injuries and nobody is on fire, but they keep winning. So, now I’m getting excited 57-33 and a 7 game lead, the best record in baseball. Then they came back from the break and lost and lost in every way possible. The Padres owned them, Santiago Casillas lost his confidence and in spite of 31 saves could close out a game. The Dodgers caught and passed them and they were leaking some serious oil and limping to the finish line. Just to make the playoffs, they had to sweep the Dodgers in the last series of the season.san-francisco-giants

Off to New York

for a one game playoff with the Mets, an awesome pitcher’s duel with Mad Bum tossing a complete game shutout and some late game heroics from Conor Gillespie and they were off to Chicago, to play the Cubs, the hottest team in baseball for a best of 5 series. I’m excited again… Game one, Cueto is pitching a gem, but throws one bad pitch and gives up a homer in the 8th and down go the Giants. Game 2 Samardzija pitching again in Chicago and gets roughed up early and its back to SF down 2 games and playing a sudden death at home. Game 3, the Giants have their Mr. October, Mad Bumm going, I’m cautiously optimistic, but it starts bad, an early homer to the Cubs pitcher and we are down 3 nothing, oh well it was a good run… but they come back and are up 5-3 in the 9th, here comes the bullpen and there goes the lead.

I’m bummed

but it’s October, it’s an even year and it’s the Giants… Crawford and Panik combined for a dramatic walk off win in the 13th, I’m stoked. Matt Moore was dealing in game 4 and the Giants take a 5-2 lead into the ninth… Here we come Chicago, game 5 and Johnny Cueto is set to go, but here comes the bull pen and there goes the game and game 5 and the season…. Un-freaking believable and, oh yea, I’m bummed…

I read his book years ago and there was also a large section on him in “The Right Stuff” I have admired him for years and was surprised to see that he is alive and well, 93 years young and is quiet an accomplished Tweeter… Check out some of these classics. Chuck Yeager Twitter

 

“The Reaper”

I saw this article today, linked on my Task & Purpose email… I’m looking forward to seeing this production, but a couple of things jumped out at me from the article. Nicholas Irving aka the Reaper is the son of military veterans and is the first African American Sniper in the 3rd Ranger Battalion. What was really interesting is that the production is based on a self-published book that Irving wrote during a four-day alcohol binge. CB

Jay Z Is Producing A TV Show About Legendary Sniper Nicholas Irving

By ADAM LINEHAN on October 12, 2016

Irving earned the nickname “the Reaper” for purportedly killing 33 insurgents during a deployment to Afghanistan in 2009.

Rapper Jay Z is producing a six-part miniseries about Nicholas Irving, who earned the nickname “the Reaper” while serving with the U.S. Army’s 3rd Ranger Battalion from 2004 to 2010.

According to Page Six, the show is being produced for NBC.

Irving, who grew up in Maryland, deployed multiple times to Iraq and Afghanistan and saw heavy combat throughout his career. During a four-month deployment to Afghanistan as a direct-action sniper in 2009, he purportedly killed 33 enemy combatants.

In addition to

being one of the deadliest snipers in American history, Irving, the son of two Cold War military veterans, holds the distinction of being the first African-American sniper to serve with 3rd Ranger Battalion.the-reaper

The six-part miniseries will be based on Irving’s 2015 memoir, “The Reaper: Autobiography of One of the Deadliest Special Ops Snipers,” which primarily focuses on Irving’s legendary 2009 Afghan deployment. A source told Page Six filming will begin early next year.

In a recent interview with Task & Purpose, Irving explained that he had written “The Reaper” during a four-day alcohol binge after leaving the Army. The memoir was initially self-published on CreateSpace.com and then picked up by St. Martin’s Press. Irving’s second book, “Way of the Reaper: My Greatest Untold Missions and the Art of Being a Sniper,” was published in August of this year.

Irving is also

a co-host of Fox’s “American Grit,” a reality series that premiered in April and was recently renewed for a second season.

Actor Sterling K. Brown, who won an Emmy for his portrayal of Christopher Darden in FX’s critically acclaimed 2016 series “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” will star as Irving, Page Six reports.

On Oct. 10, Irving confirmed the news on Instagram.

And another thing…

7Colin Kaepernick is starting for the 49ers this weekend. He is an embarrassment, his national anthem protest is disgusting and the 49ers are un-watchable. 3 years removed from the Super Bowl. Alex Smith has had a nice career since he lost his job and team to an injury…

Being Lazy Can Equal Great Success

This is a fun article that I came across today @lifehack.org today. Michael Daws puts an interesting twist on productivity. He shows how being lazy can help you be more successful, but what he is really showing is how to prioritize. Focus on what’s important now, delegate, focus, look for a better way to complete your task. Check out this article and let me know what you think.

8 Reasons Why Being Lazy Will Lead You to Great Success

PRODUCTIVITYBY MICHAEL DAWS

Your whole life you’ve been told things like “hard work is the only key to success,” or maybe even “you will never amount to anything if you don’t work hard for it.” While these statements are somewhat true, what if I told you that you could be very successful and still be lazy at the same time?

Being lazy doesn’t necessarily mean not having to do anything, it just means you find an easier way to do it so you don’t have to work as hard. Here are some of the ways that being a lazy person can help you to find great success.

 

  1. You avoid busy work

There is nothing that I absolutely hate more in the workplace than busywork. Unimportant meetings that have no effect on your particular department, or meetings that achieve nothing aside from taking up your time. This is time that could be spent actually getting the job done so you can get the heck out of there.

Lazy people would rather take the task they are assigned and get it done, get it done quickly, and get it done right, so they don’t have to spend any more time on it than absolutely necessary.

  1. You know how to delegate to cover more ground

Lazy people make really good leaders, and this point proves it. You put a lazy person in charge of a group of people for a project, they know how to delegate people to certain tasks based on their skills so the job can be done quickly and efficiently. It doesn’t make sense to have one person do everything or have everybody focus on one thing at a time — lazy people usually have a knack for making sure this does not happen.

  1. You are clever, so you can be lazy

If you are lazy, you must be clever in order to be efficient. In the workplace, you can be two of four things: lazy or diligent, clever or stupid. If you are clever and lazy, you have a tendency to be the most efficient. This just means you can get more done while doing less work.

  1. You always look for a quicker, more effective way of doing things

Bill Gates said that he would always hire a lazy person to do a difficult job at Microsoft, because they would always find an easier way to do it. Just because you are diligent and clever, doesn’t mean you are going to be more efficient. This just means you will get the job done — but you are probably going to do it without finding a better way, and you are going to take a lot of unnecessary steps to get it done.

  1. You focus on only the bare necessities

When given a task to do, lazy people tend to only focus on what is needed, rather than all of the extra details to get the job done. I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with going the extra mile every once in a while, but sometimes it can be too much and it’s just a wasted effort. Lazy people have an ability to figure out when is a good time and when it is unnecessary to do a little extra.

  1. You know how to procrastinate

Procrastination has always been seen as a bad thing, but if you are lazy and clever you know how to use procrastination to your advantage. Lazy people who procrastinate and wait until the last minute have no choice but to focus on the job and get it done in time. They know that there is no room for error or extras, so they get the job done quickly and done well in less time than a diligent worker.

  1. You are lazy because you are efficient

Sometimes it may seem that people are just plain being lazy, constantly scrolling their Twitter feeds and reloading Facebook, while you are busy busting your butt. The reality of it is that they knew how to get their job done faster and easier and simply just have the time to sit around.

  1. You know how to make money when they are sleeping

That is the ultimate dream, right?  Wake up and look at your bank account and have more money in it than you did when you fell asleep. Lazy people know how to utilize online tools and services that allow them to make money without having to work a lot. It will take some work to develop things that will sell, but then you can sit around and make money afterwards without having to sweat.

Its all about how you look at things. You don’t have to work your fingers to the bone day in and day out to be successful. It’s all about how you can get more done in less time and produce bigger results than before.

Rents Rates Cooling as Inventory grows – Chuck Barberini Real Estate

San Francisco rent growth slows in August as inventory climbs

I found that this article by Kimberly Manning was very interesting the timing was perfect for me as I was just having this conversation with friends on Friday. I will put together some numbers later this week to send out, but I was shocked when I started searching the active properties in Martinez and the neighboring areas. Just as rents soared as inventory went down, now the opposite is happening, rental properties are sitting longer and rates are coming down. Check out this article and let me know what you think, click the link at the bottom to see current interest rates … Chuck

Yardi report finds rent growth cooling as inventory grows, most notably for lifestyle renters

by Kimberly Manning Staff Writer

Key Takeaways

  • US rents were up 5 percent annually in August, slowing from the 6-plus percent increases reported for the majority of the year.
  • San Francisco completions made up 4.3 percent of the total stock of homes in August.
  • San Francisco’s total rent growth in 2016 by year-end is forecasted at 6.5 percent.

The Yardi Matrix U.S. Multifamily Outlook for fall 2016 found that national rent growth has continued but slowed, while a couple bursts of job growth has helped propel the market forward.

Covering 110 markets throughout the nation, the Yardi Matrix report has detailed ownership, construction and loan data from 65,000 multifamily properties. Although forecasters predicted a more active year for economic growth, 2016 rents increased strongly in August, at 5 percent year-over-year. However, trends are slowing, as growth surpassed 6 percent for the majority of last year.

Construction was also strong, the report shows. In 2016 360,000 units are set to be delivered– a 45 percent increase over the previous year. The majority of markets are reporting quick absorption of new housing stock, but some, such as Houston, are struggling to keep up the pace.

This new stock could also be having an impact on the slowing of rent growth. Nationally, multifamily rents were down 50 basis points month-over-month in August and 170 basis points from the last peak, which was in October 2015.

national-average-rents

Some markets are still seeing growth in big figures. Sacramento saw year-over-year rent growth in August 2016 at 11.9 percent, and its 2016 rent forecast is 10.1 percent. And while Sacramento is leading in forecasted rent growth, Tacoma saw the biggest annual jump in August, at 12.7 percent.

Most markets are going to continue to trend in a positive direction, as millennials and baby boomers continue to fuel the rental economy. Occupancy rates reached near all-time highs of 95.9 percent in July, but this figure is expected to cool a bit as new supply continues to be delivered.

Surprisingly, San Francisco had one of the nation’s lowest rates of annual rent growth in August, at 1.6 percent. However, for the entire year, Yardi still sees 2016 as a solid one for the City by the Bay. The report forecasts rent growth at 6.5 percent by the end of the year.

San Francisco is also home to a large expected influx of inventory, according to a report. Ranking in the no. 4 spot nationally for total new completions, San Francisco is expected to see a total of 15,292 new completions this year, which is 4.3 percent of the total rental stock.

national-average-rents-2

New home construction in the U.S. is still chugging along with strong figures, the report shows. Housing starts reached an annualized rate of 1.2 million units in July. Of the forecasted 360,000 new multifamily units expected to be delivered in total this year, 162,000 units have been completed.

And while occupancy rates are expected to be impacted by this large delivery, rent rates may not budge much. Builders continue to lean toward high-end lifestyle renters, Yardi says, making it more challenging for the renter-by-necessity to find an affordable place.
