What It’s Like Working Behind The Scenes As A Roadie


Now where’s the E man? Get
’em, get ’em, get ’em. Let’s see what’s going on over here on stage. What up, baby? How you doing? What a beautiful place, man. Wow. Yeah Duddy. Good morning. Getting some camera time? And we’re gonna have a big
rock show going on in here. I mean, a freakin’. My name is Eric Hillman and I’m
a guitar tech for the rock band 311. I run a bass rig
for P-Nut, the bass player of 311. I also run
Nick Hexum’s guitar world. Lead singer. I run his sounds
over here from a side stage so he can be free up there
to move around and not have to worry about stepping on all this
or messing up his elbow or anything, you know?
Aw yeah, man. Let me see what you
got. Guitars, right this way. Perfect. For me, I wake up in
the morning on a tour bus. Most of the time. Sometimes
we’ll fly into shows. That’ll be different. Wake up in a hotel or something,
but get out here to stage and catch cases. When my stuff comes up, I take
it out, take the lids off and set it all up for the day. It’s my pedal board, man.
Well, it’s Nick’s pedal board. And a little dusty. We didn’t know you were
coming over. Bunch of different sounds in here and I’ll switch
it for him during the show. You know, it’s the
difference between a… And a bunch of
other different ones. I also run social media for
the band and run things on their Instagram pages. I have a
whole tour page that we do here for the tour that
I’ll run exclusively usually and constantly pulling content
for that. Yeah, I’m going to
use that sound. I’m going to program
that one right there. A4. Yeah, you bet it’s gonna
be A4 tonight for Philly. You ready for this Philly? Man, I’m lucky. I sleep
great on the busses. It’s small quarters. They have these bunks in the
buses, which are pretty nice. We got your little
TV, DVD in there. Whatever you want. DVD. Like who’s watching
DVD’s, right? You bring your little
case of DVD’s. 15 years later,
we’re best buds. Bus bros even. And it’s a blast. And then I’ve worked
for Dirty Heads before. Pepper is usually my go-to. Sublime with Rome. Slightly Stoopid and
a lot of bands in this circuit because, you know,
we’ll meet on tour. Their guy can’t make it or
something, they’ll call me, you know. “Hey, dude. What’s up?” I’m a guitarist and
I was a guitarist. Performing guitarist. You know, when
I met these guys. I’d had this guitar tech
for a few years. And right before the tour, he
decides, “Ah, I don’t really want to tour anymore. I want
to stay home with my girl.” So I was completely
in a panic. And our studio manager, Jason,
was like, “You should call Cousin Eric.” He quickly emerged as one
of the greatest, probably the best roadie we’ve had. But I never knew this job
existed until I had it. And then the first show of
their 2007 run was when I joined. If you’d have told me
that then, I would have laughed and been like,
“Yeah, right, dude.” So we’re just stringing up
this puppy, you know. Putting new strings on every
day for the freshy, fresh. Slappy slap. It makes a
big difference to have the… The slappiness of it. Yes. This is Nick’s
main guitar here. A lot of these
gigs pay very well. My first tour I maybe came in
at a beginner’s rate and then was promptly given a raise
after my first year of completion. Making up to $5,000 a
week is not super unreal or unrealistic at all. It’s one gig I would say that
you can kind of almost live wherever you want because as
long as there’s an airport somewhat nearby, you can fly
to your next gig. Or at least to your next tour. I think we’re pretty much ready
to go get these dudes and do a soundcheck now and
it is right on time. 2:01. Check 1, 2. Alright. To name everything that could go wrong in
a day, you’d have to be here with me for a week.
Something as simple as them losing a wheel on the
way to the truck. Tube could blow on an amplifier,
a wireless frequency for a microphone could get interrupted
or just completely drop. Or if you’re in a big
city or around military bases, their wireless frequencies are
totally jammed up. Microphones, drums, so many
things running wirelessly that people don’t realize that the
simple interruption of a signal could be a
drop-out in the show. And people go, “Hey,
that drum’s not working.” Well, it’s working. It’s just, you don’t hear it
because the microphone is not working. So it’s all about
just diagnosing it quickly and fixing it so you get
back to the show. This is my work box.
Everything from rechargeable batteries and Q-tips and stamps, in case
you want to send a postcard home. And guitar strap locks… That’s it. The hardest part, easily, it has
nothing to do with stage or any of these people that
you see here in the room. It’s being away from
people you love. Being away from family.
It never gets easier. It actually gets
harder. Hi Daddy. Hi babe, what are you
doing? Where you at? I’m at work. Man, I send postcards
at home all time. Kind of old school, but
people at home appreciate the mailbox love. I’m always in tune with the band’s doing. I’m pretty much on the same
ear mix as the singer. Listening to the same
parts of the song. Listen to the cues,
to vocals, different parts. Okay. Here comes a
guitar solo. Button, button. I’m always looking at the set
list, looking at a chart, looking at notes. Or if it’s an
older song that I happen to love, I’m not doing
any of that. I’m bobbing my head going,
Ah, here comes my part. Here comes my part.
It’s right now. There’s the unspoken thing, which
is having a good attitude and being a pleasant
person to be around. If somebody starts to get an
attitude, we might call them, like, a white glove roadie. Like, I’m not going
to do that. Cousin Eric is the
opposite of that. Man, I just love being around
music and being around rock ‘n roll. The vibe. Now I’ve
got a gig where I… That’s what I do. You know what
I mean? So it’s harder to get tired of than
rather, like, you know. I used to work in
movie theaters sweeping popcorn. It’s easy to get
tired of that. Hard to get tired of going… Alright. Hey, that
sounds freakin’ great. That’s exactly how I want
it to sound, too. It’s definitely a dream job. It’s a
job I didn’t know was a real thing. But after living
it and experiencing it. Yeah, it’s definitely
a dream job.

FOR REAL. TOBIN SMITH, MARY ANN MARSH, MICHAEL REID AND TODD SHOWBURGER. THESE ARE NO MIRAGE.>>ONE DAY IS VOLATILITY AND A DOESN’T IMPRESS ME MUCH. THE CONVERSATIONS ARE STILL IN PLACE. IT IS NOT BRISK OR SLOW. CHINA TAKING THEIR FOOT OFF THE BRAKES. IT IS WHERE WE EXPECTED TO BE AND THE RUSSELL FORECAST IS FOR HIGH SINGLE DIGIT RETURNS IN 2010. WE ARE INCHING IN A VOLATILE WAY WITH AN AVERAGE RATE OF RETURN.>>WE SAW THE DOW LOOKING LIKE EVIL TONY POWELL ON HIS MOTORCYCLE AND HIS BUNGEE CARD. YOU GAVE A NEGATIVE FORECAST, YOU SAW DURABLE-GOODS ORDERS, GAVE A BEARISH CALL. I USED ALONG THAT?>>DEAD WRONG ON THE OVERALL CAPITAL, AND IF YOU LOOK AT IT, IT IS ALWAYS CORRELATED WITH IN OUR RESEARCH AND GDP GROWTH. WHAT IS WEIRD, SMART GUYS CAN, WE HAVE $30 BILLION IN EQUITY FUNDS OVER THE LAST 35 DAYS, 75% OF TRADING IS BLACK BOX GUYS SELLING TO EACH OTHER. HIGH CAN’T SAY I AM REALLY BEHIND THAT.>>YOU HAVE BEEN BEARISH. NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN WE ARE UP 9% ON THE S&P. IF YOU WERE NOT SELLING IN THE BEGINNING YOU ARE CERTAINLY SELLING AT THE END.>>ABSOLUTELY. YOU HAVE A ZERO RETAIL PARTICIPATION. YOU ARE NOT SEEING FLOWS IN TO THESE EQUITY FUNDS. WE HAVE A NET POSITIVE EQUITY FUND SINCE THE FIRST WEEK OF MAY. IF THERE’S ZERO PARTICIPATION FROM THERE. WHERE’S THE EVIDENCE? I HAVE RETAIL SALES NUMBERS AT 0.4% CANCELING EVERYTHING ELSE. NOBODY IS SPENDING ANY MONEY. FUNDAMENTALS AREN’T THERE. HOW CAN THIS CONTINUE? LIZ: MAYBE THEY WERE SCARY MAIN STREET. HERE IS THE KEY. BARKER IS CAPITAL CUTTING THEIR FORECAST FROM THE END OF THE YEAR WITH MERRILL LYNCH ALSO CUTTING THEIR S&P FORECAST. THEY ARE SAYING NO GO FOR ANY TAX DISCUSSION WHATSOEVER. THIS IS NOT A GOOD IDEA. THOSE TAX CUTS SHOULD HAVE BEEN TALKED ABOUT.>>THEY HAVE A TERRIFIC POLITICAL ISSUE. DEMOCRATS WILL ARGUE FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS AND SMALL-BUSINESS AND AND FOR THE WEALTHY AND WALL STREET, REPUBLICANS THINK THEY HAVE A GREAT ISSUE BECAUSE THEY WILL TALK ABOUT — THEY POINT TO THOSE NUMBERS. OF PERSONS PATTY MURRAY, THE SENATORS FROM WASHINGTON OR CALIFORNIA HAVE STARTED TO CAMPAIGN AGAINST WALL STREET. BOTH ARE SUBSTANTIALLY AHEAD OF THEIR REPUBLICAN OPPONENTS. DAVE: REPUBLICAN VICTORY WOULD BE GREAT FOR THE STOCK MARKET. ARE WE BRINGING THAT IT ALREADY? IS FETED DISAPPOINTMENT FOR THE MARKET?>>THERE HAS BEEN A CHANGE — YOU HAVE SEEN SIGNS OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION REGARDLESS WHO TAKES THE HOUSE AND SENATE AND A SIGNAL THAT THERE WILL BE — THAT THEY WILL GET SOME MORE BUSINESS FRIENDLY PEOPLE. THE MARKET IS PRICEY IN SOME CORPORATE SPENDING WE HAVE SEEN IN THE SUMMER. WITH LARRY SUMMERS AND TIM GEITHNER LIKELY TO GO, THEY ARE VERY MUCH FEELING IN D.C. THAT THE MESSAGE THEY UNDERSTAND IS A POPULAR RHETORICAL THING THAT DIDN’T WORK. LIZ: HERE IS THE KEY POINT. IN THE PAST WHEN WE HAVE SEEN GRIDLOCK LIKE THIS WE HAVE SEEN A GREAT SECOND HALF FOR THE FIRST TERM OF THE PRESIDENCY BUT THAT IS WHEN THERE WAS ROOM TO MOVE AND OPEN LIQUIDITY PIPES EVEN MORE. THEY HAVE ALREADY OPENED THEM SO MUCH HOW MUCH MORE CAN THEY DO?>>THE FED IS GOING TO GET THEIR WAY NO MATTER WHAT THE MARKET THINKS. WE ARE IN QUANTITATIVE LIFE RIGHT NOW. THEY STAND FULLY READY AND ABLE TO SUPPORT THE HOUSING LABOR MARKET AND EQUITY MARKET AS WELL. I DON’T KNOW YOU ARE MAKING THE CASE FOR A RAGING BULL BY THE END OF THE YEAR BUT YOU ARE MAKING THE CASE THAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT EQUITIES AS BEING UNAVOIDABLE FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE. BUT THE TIME THE RETAIL INVESTOR GETS IN THIS IN A COMPETENT WAY THAT WILL BE CONTRARIAN. DAVE: WE HAVE 16 STOCKS THAT REPRESENT 90% OF THE PERFORMANCE. THAT IS THE SCARIEST THING. OVER THE LAST 30 DAYS, WE HAVE A LIMITED BOOST. DAVE: WE HAVE A BIG MONTH. WE DO APPRECIATE IT. [TALKING OVER EACH OTHER] DAVE: OUR NEXT GUEST SAYS YOU CAN FORGET THIS RALLY IF THE BUSH TAX CUTS ARE ALLOWED TO EXPIRE BY DYSFUNCTIONAL CONGRESS. LIZ: YOU WANT TO LISTEN TO THIS. CELTS CRAFT A TAX CUT UP FOR DEBATE. GEORGE W. BUSH, AND AUTHOR OF THE BOOK SEASONED DESTRUCTION. WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON WHAT IS GOING ON?>>WE NEED TO EXTEND THE TAX CUTS UNTIL WE HAVE A SERIOUS CONVERSATION ABOUT HOW BIG GOVERNMENT IS. IF WE REALLY WANT THE GOVERNMENT — WE HAVE TO RAISE A LOT OF TAXES. EXTEND THE TAX CUTS UNTIL WE ARE READY TO TALK.>>I READ SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR BOOK. FOUR MAJOR STRUCTURAL IMBALANCES, OVERS OF A CONSUMPTION, EXCESS GOVERNMENT SPENDING AND CHRONIC DAVE DEFICITS. WHY IS IT EVERYDAY WE HEAR COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SIDES OF THIS ECONOMIC DEBATE. SOME SAY YOU HAVE TO SPEND MORE. WHY DO I HEAR SUCH DIFFERENT THOUGHTS ON THIS?>>WHAT WAS THE PROBLEM IN THE FIRST PLACE? THIS DIDN’T BEGIN WITH THE FINANCIAL CRISIS. WE HAD IMBALANCES FOR SOME TIME. WE CAN’T EXPECT QUICK FIXES. WE NEED TO INVEST MORE. IF WE DO SO GRADUALLY WE CAN DO SO WITHOUT MUCH PAIN. SOME QUICK STIMULUS IS WHAT THE ECONOMY NEEDS. LIZ: THIS IS THE ISSUE. ARE WE PAPERING OVER THE PROBLEM? ARE WE DIAGNOSING THE SYMPTOMS AND NOT THE ROOT CAUSE? WE ARE HORRENDOUS, WE DON’T HAVE AN INDUSTRIAL POLICY. WE ARE NOT MAKING PRODUCTS WE USE TO IN THE PAST. L. ARE THESE BANKS BEING COERCED, ASKED NICELY TO DO THE SECOND LOOKS?>>THEY ALL HAVE ADMINISTRATORS. EVERY BANK HAS ONE OR TWO REGULATORS, EXCUSE ME, MY TIE IS ASKEW. I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU LET ME ON. CHRIS: YOU LOOK GOOD, ANYWAY.>>BANKS HAVE SEEN SECOND LOOK PROGRAMS, GO BACK TO YOUR BOOK OF BUSINESS, DID WE TURN SOMEBODY DOWN A YEAR AGO AND DID THEIR SITUATION IMPROVE TO A POINT WHERE WE MAKE THE LOAN? THE ARTICLES I READ ON THE ISSUE WERE MORE ABOUT COMMERCIAL LOANS AND NOT SO MUCH ABOUT COMMERCIAL LOANS. ON THE COMMERCIAL SIDE, AS ABSOLUTELY IT MAKES SENSE TO GO BACK AND LOOK. I ALSO HEARD THE RUMOR. LIZ: WHY?>>BUSINESS IS IMPROVED. A LOT OF THESE GUYS WERE NOT CREDIT WORTHY 12 MONTHS AGO AND THEY ARE CREDIT WORTHY NOW. PART OF THIS STORY SAYS THE FEDS WILL BUY THE LOANS. NOTHING I SEE CAN SUB STAND THAT. LIZ: MICHAEL, A LOT OF LOANS STARTED BY COMMERCIAL REGIONAL PLAYERS STILL ON A STRETCHER. CAN THEY AFFORD THEM?>>I DON’T THINK THEY CAN AFFORD NOT TO. AT SOME POINT BANKS INTO TO GET BACK TO LETTING CAPITAL FLOW. THE BANKS HAVE CLEARLY MOVED FROM THE LOOSE RISK MANAGEMENT TO OVERLY TIGHT RISK MANAGEMENT THAT GOES ACROSS THE SPECTRUM FROM SMALL BUSINESS TO, AUTO LOANS TO MORTGAGES. AT SOME POINT IF THE BANKING SYSTEM DOESN’T START TO WORK IN TERMS OF, THEY HAVE TO TAKE A BIT OF RISK. I UNDERSTAND THERE IS UNCERTAIN MARKET. BANKS DON’T MAKE MONEY IF THEY’RE NOT LENDING MONEY. AT SOME POINT THEY HAVE TO START LOOSENING THAT RISK. THEY HAVE TO DO IT IN LEGITIMATE WAY.>>ESPECIALLY IF THEY’RE NOT PAYING ANYTHING FOR THEIR MONEY. THEY’RE DOING PRETTY GOOD. CHRIS: WILL THIS WORK, JPMORGAN CHASE, PNC, REALLY BIG BANKS BUYING INTO SECOND LOOK PROGRAMS. IS IT GOING TO BE ENOUGH?>>RIGHT. WELL A COUPLE OF THINGS HERE THOUGH. WHAT WERE THEY DOING ALL ALONG? YES THEY DO NEED TO MAKE LOANS TO MAKE MONEY. WHY WEREN’T THEY MAKING LOANS ALL ALONG OVER THE PAST, WHAT YEAR, YEAR-AND-A-HALF? WE’VE GONE THROUGH STRESS TESTS. WE HAD A BANKING SITUATION. WE HAD SUBPRIME BORROWERS BRING ITS TO ITS KNEES. WHITE HOUSE INFLUENCING BANKS, YEAH, WHY DON’T YOU HAVE A SECOND LOOK AT LOANS YOU TURNED DOWN. THIS DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE. THE BANKS ALL ALONG SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING WHAT THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING AS FAR AS LOOKING AT CREDIBILITY. AS FAR AS SEEING IF THESE LOANS ARE LEGIT. NOW ALL OF SUDDEN, MAYBE WE DIDN’T DOT THIS I OR CROSS THIS T A DIFFERENT WAY AND WE’LL GIVE YOU THE LOAN. IT JUST DOESN’T ADD UP. LIZ: MARY ANN YOU ARE A SHARP ANALYST. YOU’VE GOT YOUR EAR TO THE GROUND IN D.C. ARE BANK REGULATORS PUTTING ARM ON THEM LIKE CHRIS COTTER VASE?>>THEY’RE NOT DOING ANYTHING THAN WHAT PRESIDENT OBAMA DID TO BP. I DOUBT BP WOULD HAVE COME UP WITH $20 BILLION IN CLEANUP FUND DOWN ON THE COAST UNLESS THE PRESIDENT ENCOURAGED THEM. THE ECONOMY WILL NOT GET BACK ON TRACK. PEOPLE AREN’T GOING TO GET BACK TO WORK UNTIL LENDING IS DONE TO QUALIFIED BUSINESSES. THIS IS WHY VOTERS ARE UPSET. THEY WENT ALONG WITH BAILOUTS BECAUSE IT WAS GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY. NOW THEY FEEL LIKE CHUMPS IT TURNED OUT TO BE GOOD FOR EVERYBODY BUT THEM.>>THIS IS END ARE ISSUE. LET’S KEEP THAT IN. THIS IS NOT ACCESS TO CREDIT ISSUE FOR SMALL BUSINESSES. THIS IS ACCESS TO SALES RIGHT NOW AND PEOPLE ARE NOT SPENDING ANY MONEY.>>YOU’RE RIGHT. BUT CLEARLY THERE ARE COMPANIES ABLE TO TAKE CREDIT ON LITERALLY HAD A CREDIT LINE OF, THREE YEARS AGO AND HAVE ONE MILLION CREDIT LINE. THEIR BUSINESS HASN’T GONE DOWN 90%. THAT’S WHAT THEY’RE LOOKING AT.>>THAT’S RIGHT. LIZ: LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT ANOTHER CROWD WHOSE BUSINESS IS LOOKING PRETTY GOOD TODAY. TIME FOR WHO MADE MONEY TODAY. YOU, YOU, YOU. YOU MADE MONEY. DID YOU LIKE THAT?>>YOU GO GIRL. LIZ: THIS IS WHY WE’RE TALKING ABOUT WHY YOU MADE MONEY. PRESIDENT OBAMA IS READY TO SIGN LEGISLATION INTO LAW THAT STRIPS THE SEC FROM FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT VIOLATIONS AND EXEMPTIONS. EXEMPTIONS. I SCREWED THAT UP. THAT’S WHAT I MEANT. PROVISION WAS TUCKED INTO THE FINANCIAL REGULATORY BILL. A STORY FIRST BROUGHT TO LIGHT BUT US HERE AT FOX BUSINESS. WE WORKED TIRELESSLY TO BRING ATTENTION TO THE PROVISION AND HELP INSURE GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY TO THE PEOPLE, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. WE’RE NOR THE PEOPLE. WE’RE FOR YOU THE VIEWER. NEXT UP, MEMBERS OF THE FEDERATION OF INTERNATIONAL ROBO SOCCER ASSOCIATION –>>COTTER. THIS IS YOU RIGHT HERE. LIZ: ROBO SOCCER. THIS IS YOU IN THE MIDDLE. MORE THAN 50 TEAMS ARE GATHERING IN INDIA FOR THE 15th AND WALL ROBOT CUP.>>15 TEAMS AND ONE WOMAN. LIZ: NOW THE SOCCER PLAYING AND DROIDS NOT EXACTLY READY TO TAKE ON RINALDI. THAT IS NOT LEAVING THEIR ENGINEERS FROM DREAMING BIG. THE CREATORS SAY THEIR ULTIMATE GOAL IS DEVELOP A TEAM OF FULLY AUTONOMOUS HUMANOID ROBOTS BY YEAR 2050 NOT ONLY COMPETE AGAINST HUMAN PLAYERS BUT WIN.

Buy Real Estate and build a Portfolio FAST!! (50k is an EXAMPLE! This works for 50k to 500k++)



hi I'm Jim o nestea with the Macan team in this video we're going to discuss investing in real estate with little or no money down using a cash out refinance for the last 16 years I've worked with some of the most successful investors in the country that's how I know this system works this will work for the small guy who just wants to buy one home a year or the mega investor looking to buy a hundred I'm going to break it down for you step-by-step cash I'll refine our property with little or no money out of pocket which allows you to buy two or three or four a year rather than one every four years like the average investor does this is the perfect way to buy real estate with little money out of pocket let me break down the math on how this works so if we start with a home that's $50,000 and we add $50,000 in value to it through renovation our total is going to be $100,000 he is choosing a home that has the ability to be appraised for in and around $150,000 in this example most lenders will lend you 70 percent loan to value and in this case our value is the appraised value 70% of the appraised value will allow you to pull out one hundred and five thousand dollars recouping your total investment and giving you an extra $5,000 for your pocket that's the ideal scenario so again most banks will give you 70% LTV the average investor as we touched on saves up for a downpayment 30 $40,000 buys one home then spends the next few years saving for their second home with a cash out refinance you're able to add properties and homes to your portfolio in a short period of time it can really build a portfolio in one year rather than over a decade this is how the pros do it this is how to build a portfolio fast and with little to no money out of your pocket so here's the secret sauce on how to choose the correct homes to correct properties to buy which will enable you to get to the appraised value needed to make this formula work first note the zip codes know the marketplace know the neighborhood's you want to find the neighborhood debts preferably trending up most importantly finding a location that have had home sales at the same value we're looking for our praise value to be or higher we call these comparable sales and these three things are really the secret sauce on how to make this formula work for you this is a lot of information but that's why I'm here use me as a resource comment on this video reach out directly or follow me on social media you you

Building Green



Narrator: MORE THAN 300 HUNDRED YEARS AGO,
WILLIAM PENN PLANNED FOR HIS BELOVED CITY OF PHILADELPHIA TO BE A "GREEN COUNTRY TOWN,"
RECOMMENDING THAT THERE BE AMPLE ROOM FOR GARDENS, ORCHARDS, AND FIELDS TO MAKE THE
CITY WHOLESOME AND BEAUTIFUL. THE HISTORIC CITY WAS THE FIRST IN THE COUNTRY TO DELIVER
CLEAN DRINKING WATER TO ITS CITIZENS USING STATE-OF-THE-ART WATER TREATMENT, AND IN 1855,
HAD THE FORESIGHT TO BEGIN PURCHASING LAND ALONG THE SCHUYKILL RIVER TO HELP PROTECT
THE CITY'S DRINKING WATER SUPPLY. TODAY, THE CITY IS EMBRACING GREEN TECHNIQUES TO INFILTRATE,
CAPTURE AND TREAT STORMWATER ON-SITE. THESE TECHNIQUES REPLICATE THE NATURAL HYDROLOGIC
CYCLE AND ARE A FORWARD-THINKING SOLUTION TO THE AGE-OLD PROBLEM OF RUNOFF. INSTEAD
OF USING PIPES AND TUNNELS, THE GOAL IS TO SLOW THE WATER DOWN, SPREAD IT OUT AND SOAK
IT IN USING INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS. Howard Neukrug: WATER IS EXTREMELY VALUABLE
UNTIL IT HITS THE STORMWATER INLET, THEN IT BECOMES A WASTE PRODUCT. INSTEAD OF TAKING
THAT RAIN WATER, WHICH IS PERFECTLY GOOD WATER, AND, AND HAVING IT GO INTO OUR SEWER SYSTEM,
WE CAN INFILTRATE THAT, THAT WATER INTO, INTO THE GROUND THEREBY HELPING THE GROUND WATER,
HELPING OUR RIVERS AND STREAMS, HELPING THE ECOLOGY, AND SAVING US SOME MONEY AND ENERGY
IN MANAGING AND TREATING WHAT RAINWATER THEN BECOMES A WASTE PRODUCT IN OUR SEWER SYSTEM.
Narrator: GREEN TECHNIQUES BEAUTIFY AND COOL CITIES, MINIMIZE FLOODING AND REDUCE THE NEED
FOR COSTLY PIPES AND TUNNELS TO MANAGE STORMWATER. PHILADELPHIA'S ONION FLATS LLC IS SYNONYMOUS
WITH BUILDING AND COMMUNITY SUSTAINABILITY. THROUGH THEIR DEVELOPMENT/DESIGN/BUILD COLLECTIVE,
THEY ARE ABLE TO DESIGN BUILDINGS WITH THE HIGHEST RATINGS FOR ENERGY AND WATER EFFICIENCY,
WHILE MEETING THE BOTTOM LINE. THE CITY NOW OFFERS INCENTIVES TO BUILDERS AND DEVELOPERS
TO MEET CLEAN WATER AND OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL GOALS BUT ONION FLATS WAS AN EARLY INNOVATOR
WHO HAS LEAD THE WAY BY EXAMPLE. Pat McDonald: WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT DESIGN,
ESPECIALLY SUSTAINABLE DESIGN, IT'S IMPORTANT TO HAVE EVERYBODY AT THE TABLE AT THE SAME
TIME, RIGHT FROM THE VERY START; SO FROM THE CONCEPTION TO THE END OF THE PROJECT. NORMALLY
MOST PROJECTS ARE DONE WITH ENGINEERS, BUILDERS, DEVELOPERS IN DIFFERENT ROOMS AT DIFFERENT
TIMES ALL WANTING THE SAME THING, BUT ENDING UP IN SUCH DIFFERENT KIND OF PARTS OF THE
PROJECT AND WITH DIFFERENT KIND OF IDEAS, YOU DON'T HAVE THE INTEGRATIVE APPROACH. WE'VE
ALWAYS MADE IT BE VERY, VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE'RE ALL ALIGNED FROM THE VERY, VERY START.
AND IT MAKES IT EASY WHEN WE'RE ALL THE SAME PEOPLE.
Howard Steinberg: FOR US, DESIGNING BUILDINGS, DEVELOPING BUILDINGS ISN'T ABOUT BEING GREEN.
IT, IT'S ABOUT A COMMON SENSE APPROACH TO DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT TO BUILDING PRACTICES.
OUR, OUR PRIMARY FOCUS IS TO DESIGN BUILDINGS THAT ARE MODELS OF SUSTAINABILITY TO SHOW
THAT IT, IT NEED NOT COST ANYMORE TO BUILD GREEN.
Pat McDonald: THE COST OF BUILDING SUSTAINABLY IS NO MORE, ULTIMATELY THAN BUILDING A STANDARD
CODE HOUSE. IN THIS EXAMPLE, FOR INSTANCE, THIN FLATS, THE HOUSES ARE SELLING IN A MARKET
THAT'S NOT SELLING, AT MARKET VALUE – WHICH IS UNHEARD OF RIGHT NOW.
Narrator: IN 2009 ONION FLATS COMPLETED THE THIN FLATS DEVELOPMENT. LOCATED IN THE NORTHERN
LIBERTIES NEIGHBORHOOD OF PHILADELPHIA, THIN FLATS IS THE FIRST LEED CERTIFIED PLATINUM
DUPLEX IN THE UNITED STATES. LEED STANDS FOR LEADERSHIP IN ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN
AND IS AN INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED GREEN BUILDING CERTIFICATION STANDARD. THIN FLATS
PROMOTES LOW IMPACT LIFESTYLES THAT SUPPORT THE CITY'S MANDATE TO PROTECT WATER QUALITY.
Pat McDonald: WE'RE SITTING HERE RIGHT NOW AT THIN FLATS IN PHILADELPHIA. THEY CONSIST
OF EIGHT UNITS THAT ARE DUPLEXES, STACKED ON TOP OF EACH OTHER; ONE AT THE LOWER LEVEL
WITH TWO FLOORS, AND ONE AT THE TOP LEVEL. IT CONSISTS OF PEOPLE OF ALL DIFFERENT TYPES,
SIZES, SHAPES AND COLORS AND IT IS, AH, MOSTLY PEOPLE THAT ARE INTERESTED IN LOWERING THEIR
UTILITY BILLS BY SIXTY PERCENT OR MORE. PEOPLE THAT WANT TO LIVE IN A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT
WITH LOTS OF LIGHT AND LOTS OF FRESH AIR. Narrator: THE ROOF ON EACH UPPER-LEVEL DUPLEX
NOT ONLY PROVIDES AN OUTDOOR LIVABLE SPACE, BUT ALSO CAPTURES AND TREATS STORMWATER. THESE
GREEN ROOFS HOLD A LAYER OF GROWING MEDIUM, WHERE PLANTS SUCH AS SEDUM, ORNAMENTAL GRASSES
AND EVEN SUNFLOWERS GROW AND HELP CAPTURE STORMWATER RUNOFF. WITHOUT THE GREEN ROOF,
THE RUNOFF WOULD GO DIRECTLY INTO THE CITY'S SEWER SYSTEM.
Howard Steinberg: ON THE GREEN ROOF AS YOU CAN SEE, THESE PAVERS HAVE SPACES BETWEEN
THEM ALLOWING THAT WATER TO ALSO RECHARGE WITHIN THE GREEN ROOF SYSTEM. THE GREEN ROOF
IS ACTUALLY PURIFYING THE WATER THAT'S GOING INTO FIRST THE GREEN ROOF, AND THEN BYPASSED
TO BEYOND. IN OUR PROJECT AT THIN FLATS WE ACTUALLY CAPTURE THAT WATER IN A RAIN WATER
HARVESTING TANK. AH, THE GREEN ROOF HAS TREMENDOUS VALUE IN TERMS OF ONGOING MAINTENANCE OF A,
OF A ROOF. THERE'S A PHYSICAL ROOF MEMBRANE, LIKE ANY OTHER ROOF, BUT THAT MEMBRANE NOW
IS NOT EXPOSED TO THE SUN. SO IT'S NOT SUBJECTED TO THE UV DEGRADATIONS. THE ROOF WILL LAST
TWO TO THREE TIMES LONGER THAN IF IT WERE EXPOSED.
Ross Donolow: THE GREEN ROOF IS GREAT BECAUSE IT'S, IT'S AN OASIS. YOU KNOW, YOU CAN GET
AWAY FROM THE CITY AND WHAT'S DOWN BELOW AND YOU'RE COVERED BY, YOU KNOW, FAUNA AND FLOWERS
AND PLANTS AND YOU CAN ENTERTAIN UP HERE. UM, IT'S GOT, YOU KNOW, WALKWAYS THAT YOU
CAN PUT YOUR GRILL ON AND YOU CAN HAVE PEOPLE UP HERE. AND IT'S, IT'S SPECTACULAR. YOU HAVE
A VIEW OF THE CITY. Narrator: STORMWATER RUNOFF FROM THIN FLATS'
GREEN ROOFS AND PORCHES TRAVELS THROUGH DOWNSPOUTS AND IS DELIVERED TO RAINWATER HARVESTING TANKS,
OR CISTERNS. THESE CISTERNS ARE LOCATED UNDER THE REAR PARKING AREA AND CAN STORE SEVERAL
THOUSAND GALLONS. THE WATER CAN THEN BE USED FOR CAR WASHING AND IRRIGATION AMONG OTHER
USES THROUGH THE NUMEROUS HYDRANTS THAT ARE LOCATED ON THE PROPERTY. WATER CONSERVATION
PRACTICES WERE ALSO INCORPORATED INTO THE INTERIORS OF THIN FLATS.
Howard Steinberg: SO AS PART OF OUR ATTENTION TO WATER CONSERVATION, WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE
BATHROOMS, WE LOOK AT LOW-FLOW FIXTURES, LOW-FLOW FAUCETS, DUAL FLUSH TOILETS. AGAIN, IT'S ALL
ABOUT WATER CONSERVATION. Pat McDonald: WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT A
SUSTAINABLE APPROACH (IN) THE MAINTENANCE ON A SUSTAINABLE BUILDING, IF IT'S THOUGHT
OUT WELL, AND WE LIKE TO BELIEVE THAT WE THINK THINGS THROUGH, THEN THE MAINTENANCE SHOULD
BE NO MORE INTENSIVE THAN ANY STANDARD BUILDING. AND IN A LOT OF CASES, A LOT LESS INTENSIVE.
Narrator: BEING AN ENERGY STAR PARTNER IS PART OF ONION FLATS' SUSTAINABLE APPROACH.
TO DATE THEY HAVE BUILT 11 HOMES THAT ARE ENERGY STAR CERTIFIED, INCLUDING THIN FLATS.
BY CHOOSING ENERGY STAR, HOMEOWNERS AND BUSINESSES CAN SAVE MONEY ON THEIR UTILITY BILLS. ACCORDING
TO 2008 ESTIMATES, THE ENERGY STAR PROGRAM SAVED AMERICANS $18 BILLION ON UTILITY BILLS.
Pat McDonald: THE BENEFIT OF BEING AN ENERGY STAR PARTNER FOR ONION FLATS IS THAT WE'RE
PUTTING THE BEST APPLIANCES INTO THE HOMES WITH THE BEST EFFICIENCY. IT MAKES SENSE THAT
WE USE ENERGY STAR PRODUCTS IN OUR HOMES. Narrator: AND NEW HOME BUYERS ARE TAKING INTO
CONSIDERATION SUSTAINABILITY AND GREEN TECHNIQUES WHEN SELECTING A NEW HOME.
Ross Donolow: I'VE LIVED AT THIN FLATS SINCE MARCH FIRST, 2009. IT WAS PLACE THAT WAS A
LOT OF DETAIL AND THOUGHT WENT INTO IT. SO THAT, THAT DREW ME IMMEDIATELY BECAUSE I KNEW
THERE WAS A PURPOSE FOR EVERYTHING AND IT WAS, IT WAS DONE VERY INTELLIGENTLY. THIS
HAS BEEN CONSIDERED THE FIVE-MINUTE COMMUNITY. WHICH MEANS YOU CAN GET ANYWHERE IN FIVE MINUTES.
I'M DRIVING A WHOLE LOT LESS. UM, I HAVE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION HERE. SO I'M NOT USING MY CAR
ANYWHERE NEAR AS MUCH AS I WOULD. THERE'S STORES AND RESTAURANTS, AND, AND YOU'RE LIVING
IN SOMETHING THAT'S VERY GREEN AND SUSTAINABLE. SOMETHING THAT'S SAVING ENERGY AND SOMETHING
THAT LOOKS ESTHETICALLY JUST, JUST INCREDIBLE. IT'S JUST AN INCREDIBLE PLACE TO LIVE.
Narrator: THE APPLICATION OF GREEN TECHNIQUES TO CONTROL STORMWATER IS GAINING IN POPULARITY
ACROSS THE COUNTRY. IN THE VAST MAJORITY OF CASES, THE U.S. EPA HAS FOUND THAT IMPLEMENTING
WELL-CHOSEN GREEN TECHNIQUES CAN SAVE MONEY FOR DEVELOPERS, OWNERS AND COMMUNITIES, ALONG
WITH HELPING TO PROTECT AND RESTORE WATER QUALITY, REDUCE ENERGY CONSUMPTION, AND IMPROVE
THE QUALITY OF LIFE. Patrick McDonald: WE LIKE TO CONSIDER THE
THREE, THE THREE P APPROACH: PEOPLE, PLANET AND PROFIT. IF YOU DON'T CONSIDER PEOPLE AND
THEIR NEEDS, THAT'S NOT GONNA WORK. IF YOU DON'T CONSIDER THE PROFIT, THE PLANET, IT'S
NOT GOING TO WORK BECAUSE, ESPECIALLY IN THIS ENVIRONMENT, IT'S VERY, VERY IMPORTANT TO
LOOK AT OUR ENVIRONMENT AS SOMETHING THAT WE'VE GIVEN ONE OF AND CREATE IT AS SOMETHING
THAT WE'RE RESPONSIBLE FOR. AND THEN PROFIT. IF YOU CAN'T MAKE IT FEASIBLE FOR SOMEONE
TO MAKE A PROFIT OUT OF IT OR TO EARN AN INCOME FROM IT, IT'S NOT GOING TO BE SUSTAINABLE.
WE NEED TO THINK AS A SOCIETY, HOW RESPONSIBLE DO I NEED TO BE WHEN I DESIGN AND BUILD A
PROPERTY TO EVERYONE ELSE? AND MY ANSWER TO THAT IS: EXTREMELY RESPONSIBLE.

Why I left Keller Williams



hi guys welcome back to my channel this is Luna over here I'm a real Cajun here in Philadelphia so today I want to talk about why I choose to leave Keller Williams I know this is being a while I promise you guys that I was gonna post a last week Brendan anyway so I have three reasons and the first reason that I left Keller Williams is because I choose to focus on my self branding Combs is a really great company it's very well known but I wanted people to know who it is like I wanted to focus on you know wrenching out on myself not necessary the company and then also a tip for new agents out there choosing to work for a great company is great they have an advantage like they have great trainings and everything but it doesn't necessarily mean that you will be great on sales because a great company like any company can you know get a name saying their tollens and it varies from different office to office as well so that's my first reason my second reason is a lot of you guys know that I'm bilingual I was born and raised in Shanghai so I do speak very very funny Chinese Mandarin so I want to focus my clientele and you know Chinese buyers and plus Chinese buyers in America do have a huge demand since 2015 Chinese buyer has become the number one real estate buyers slash investors in US they've been spending about 300 billion US dollars in u.s. real estate so I see Philly as a great potential city and they do attract lots of Chinese or international buyers so I want to focus that you know to towards more for my 2018 goal as well and my last last but not least is like I choose to come work for this Chinese broker because I'm very lucky that I found him he is very knowledgeable he has about a decade of experience in real estate he is very generous to me I have a great split the Commission split and the top of that he covers most of my expenses like I have no monthly fee I he pays most of my marketing costs as well business card and yaar signed so that is my main three reasons why I choose to leave Keller Williams III like Keller Williams you know I don't have anything bad about them but this is my true experience and you know how I feel and my reasoning behind it and I hope you guys can get some good out of my video and keep supporting the channel if you liked it please hit the like and subscribe button I will see you guys next week thanks for watching bye
