Overseas Real Estate Investors are Net Sellers

first_img For the first time since 2012, overseas investors became net sellers of U.S. real estate, and in this Video Spotlight, CNBC’s Diana Olick discusses the $21.3 billion in direct acquisitions and $21.4 billion sold by investors in Q2 2019.“Prices in the U.S. are at record highs, and the returns are low, so its just hard for investors to put money to work in the U.S.,” said Olick.Investor confidence is slipping as market conditions remain volatile, according to a new study from Wells Fargo. According to the Wells Fargo/Gallup Investor Optimism Index, U.S. investor optimism fell to its lowest point since the fourth quarter of 2016 as investor confidence weakened in the 12-month outlook for the stock market and U.S. employment.The Q3 2019 Wells Fargo/Gallup Investor and Retirement Optimism Index is now 72, down 13 points from 85 in the second quarter and well below the post-recession high of 117 reached in the fourth quarter of 2017,  the largest quarterly drop for the index in more than three years.“Even before the volatility of the past two weeks, investors were rattled by the market decline at the start of the month, including a nearly 800-point drop in the Dow at the start of the survey period,” said Andy Byer, head of Client Service and Advice for Wells Fargo Advisors on Business Wire.

Daughter of Philanthropists Bob and Mary Montgomery Charged with Trafficking Cocaine

first_imgCourtnay Montgomery, the 55-year-old daughter of wealthy local philanthropists Mary Montgomery and the late Bob Montgomery, was charged this week with cocaine trafficking, as well as using, possessing or manufacturing drug equipment to transport drugs, court records state.An assistant state attorney said during a bond hearing Thursday morning that Montgomery had 110 grams of cocaine in her possession at the time of her arrest.Montgomery, who lives in Wellington, was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on Wednesday morning. Palm Beach County Judge Paul Damico has set her bond at $100,000.She was first arrested for drugs back in 1995, when Palm Beach police found her passed out in her car while holding 24 rocks of crack cocaine, court records show.Her father, trial lawyer Bob Montgomery, died in 2008. Since then, allegations from caretakers and court-appointed guardians have conflicted with Courtnay Montgomery’s claims of how her ailing mother was being treated following her father’s death.Caretakers allege that Courtnay was a danger to her mother, while Courtnay says they were the ones who were taking advantage of her mother.In 2016, Mary Montgomery failed to return from a trip to visit her daughter in Minnesota. When police tried to conduct a welfare check on Mary, Courtnay allegedly threatened them. Courtnay was subsequently charged with five counts of exploitation.The following month, a judge appointed a guardian to manage Mary Montgomery’s estate. Shortly thereafter, Courtnay sued the guardian for not acting in her mother’s best interest.Two years ago, police charged Courtnay with grand theft and conspiracy to commit grand theft. They say she took a Rolls-Royce and a Bentley, in addition to $1.34 million in silverware, and $8,000 in fine wine from her family’s home. Last year, the family’s 26,000-square-foot Mediterranean mansion at 1800 South Ocean Boulevard in Palm Beach was sold for over $37 million dollars.Mary and Courtnay Montgomery both receive a monthly stipend from the $206 million settlement that Bob Montgomery won when he sued the state for cheating him on fees they owed him for a tobacco litigation case.If a settlement is reached in the guardianship case, Courtnay Montgomery would receive $73,000 per month.Courtnay Montgomery’s attorney, Cindy E. D’Agostino, has declined to comment.last_img read more

The Dawn of Sensors & Social Media in the World of Fine Art

first_img4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Tags:#art#Internet of Things#web marshall kirkpatrick 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnoutcenter_img Related Posts 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… Wall placards, museum docents and audio tours have all become essential technologies for many peoples’ engagement with our collective culture as represented in the world’s fine art.Imagine what could happen if your enjoyment of art was augmented further by the kinds of social technologies that you already use on the internet. Thousands of visitors to the STRP art festival in Eindhoven, Holland this Fall got to experience exactly that. The festival’s creative integration of its existing art exhibits with Twitter, Facebook, a recommendation engine, a print-on-demand service, tag clouds and RFID chips might represent the kind of experience that art lovers everywhere may be able to enjoy elsewhere soon. If life imitates art, such technologies could bust out of the museums and enter into the rest of our cities sooner than we think.Consider whether this sounds desirable, in art and perhaps throughout our interaction with what was formerly called the offline world. Here’s how they did it at STRP this year, according to an in-depth account by Mary Catherine O’Connor in the publication RFID Journal. (“At Dutch Festival, Visitors Used RFID to Critique Art, Share Opinions“)Viewers of Christoph De Boeck’s Staalhemel (“Steel Sky”) took turns wearing EEG headgear that controlled tiny hammer strikes against the metal above other attendees, in time with their brain waves.Prior to entering the festival, attendees were encouraged to fill out online profiles describing themselves and, if they like, signing in with their Twitter and Facebook accounts. Then when they arrived, they were given Radio Frequency Identification chips (RFID) in a variety of different formats (badges, bracelets or their municipal services card) that they logged-in to associate with the online accounts they’d created. Inside the part of the festival that included an art show, the attendees were able to visit any of 37 kiosks that could read their RFID chips and recognize who they were. They were then asked about particular pieces of art they had just viewed. How would they describe each one? How would they rate their appreciation of the pieces of art?If attendees had signed in with their Twitter or Facebook accounts, their reviews could be published immediately out to the web and shared with friends. Have you seen van Gogh’s Starry Night at the New York MoMA? It’s surrounded by people waving cell phone cameras at it all the time. Could we just skip that part and publish a picture, along with our responses, out to Facebook? Personal annotation, in an existing social context. Ought that not be every bit as much an option while standing in front of a beautiful painting, or river or tree, as it is when reading an article on a website you’ve visited?After describing each work, the kiosks showed attendees a tag cloud of the most frequently used words used by other people to describe the same works. Perhaps you’ve experienced a work in an unusual way, or hadn’t considered a particular emotion or theme that other viewers had experienced when looking at the same work. Wouldn’t that be informative to learn?Pandora for art. Depending on which pieces they rated the highest, the kiosks also offered attendees personalized recommendations of other pieces they would likely enjoy and should make sure not to miss. That’s very cool. (MIT Media Lab does something similar, recommending exhibits based on your past experiences at the Lab.)The more art an attendee rated, the more likely they became to win a graphic badge displayed on the profiles of top participants. Walking throughout the exhibit were festival staff members with RFID scanners, netbooks and digital cameras. Attendees could have their cards scanned, their photos taken and then purchase a personalized photo book printed to commemorate the event.“Many of the STRP attendees are high-school kids, and they think [RFID] is really cool,” Ties van de Werff, a curator of the event, told RFID Journal. “To them, it’s an extension of the Web.”What do you think of this kind of technology being involved in the world of art? If you think it could enrich the experience without too great a cost in attention and engagement, perhaps you can imagine this kind of experience extending beyond the museum and into our everyday lives.last_img read more

Super Bowl ads heavy on humor, surprises and… robots

first_imgThis undated image provided by Anheuser-Busch shows a scene from the company’s Bud Light 2019 Super Bowl NFL football spot. (Anheuser-Busch via AP)NEW YORK — This year’s Super Bowl ads went heavy on the humor — and surprises.Take, for instance, Jason Bateman’s Hyundai ad about an elevator with unpleasantness on every floor. A surprise “Game of Thrones” tie-in with Bud Light both confused and delighted viewers. And robots seemed to be everywhere as advertisers picked up on Americans’ unease over our growing dependence on artificial intelligence.ADVERTISEMENT This year’s ads are “more mild than wild,” said Kelly O’Keefe, a professor at Virginia Commonwealth University’s Brandcenter. “While the focus of the night is on entertainment rather than controversy, there is very little that we’re going to talking about at the water cooler tomorrow.”The New England Patriots reigned supreme over the L.A. Rams on the field in Atlanta, but during ad breaks, advertisers battled each other for buzz. Bud Light was one of the more talked about advertisers during the game.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesIts surprise ad , for instance, garnered some raves. The Bud Light spot started off focused on its “Bud Knight” mascot in a jousting tournament. But he ends up facing an evil character from the TV show who attacks him while a dragon fills the sky and apparently incinerates the scene — abruptly turning the ad into a promo for the upcoming final season of the series.Super Bowl ad fan Tom Olivieri, 42, watching the game at a party at his sister’s house in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, said the ad was the “best so far.” Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next “Everyone here loves ‘Game of Thrones,’” he said. “The whole room was screaming.”Bud’s wasn’t the only misdirection of the night. A Hulu ad for the new season of “The Handmaid’s Tale” started out as a spoof of Ronald Reagan’s 1984 campaign ad “Morning in America.” And a promo for CBS’ new “Twilight Zone” made it seem like the game was starting up again in Atlanta before abruptly cutting to an empty stadium with host Jordan Peele at the center.Ads poking fun at robots appeared everywhere. TurboTax had a “Robochild” and Michelob Ultra showcased an uber-athletic robot sad that he can’t partake in a beer. SimpliSafe and Sprint’s ads also featured robots. Meanwhile, Pringles and Amazon itself made fun of smart assistants.Most of the ads played up robots for laughs and weren’t realistic.“We have a real anxiety about AI and our future overlords, and a lot of advertisers are trying to address it,” said Mark DiMassimo, head of ad agency DiMassimo Goldstein.ADVERTISEMENT US judge bars Trump’s health insurance rule for immigrants PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes Grace Poe files bill to protect govt teachers from malicious accusations PDEA chief backs Robredo in revealing ‘discoveries’ on drug war Jared Goff, Rams’ electric offense shorts out in Super Bowl defeat LATEST STORIES Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte Amazon’s ad was the best of the bunch, he said. It showed Harrison Ford, Forest Whitaker and other celebrities testing out rejected Amazon products that feature its Alexa digital assistant, such as a talking electric toothbrush and a dog collar that responds to dogs, not humans.“Amazon stands out for having gotten tech-related advertising right,” he said. Their ad was “pop-culture first, self-deprecating, and it plays against the robot-like personality of Alexa.”Women-centric ads were also big. After Hulu’s “Handmaid’s Tale” spot, Serena Williams appeared as spokeswoman for Bumble, which bills itself as a feminist dating app where women make the first move. The tennis icon urges women not to wait to be given power, saying, “we already have it.”Supermodel Karlie Kloss played up her identity as a businesswoman in an ad for web-hosting service Wix.com . She wore an understated green T-shirt, a far cry from skimpily clad super models in Super Bowl ads of yore.Ads in general avoided politics, but a few tugged at the heartstrings.A Microsoft ad showed a disabled child talking excitedly about the fun he has using Microsoft’s adaptive Xbox controller designed for players with mobility limitations. The Washington Post aired an ad voiced by Tom Hanks highlighting the often dangerous work journalists do.Google’s pair of ads focused on its good deeds. One focused on its ability to help veterans search for jobs. Another emphasized the human side of its translation service. “Words can hurt and sometimes divide,” the voiceover said. But according to the ad, every day the most translated words are “How are you,” ″Thank you,” and “I love you.”That ad was a favorite at Robert Lerner’s gathering in Los Altos, California. He hosted about 20 people on game day.“People liked the fact it was international and shows Google is doing the good stuff — we live in Google country,” he said. “It was heartwarming and good to see.” Oil plant explodes in Pampanga town MOST READ View commentslast_img read more
