Hire Heroes Salutes Military Members and Vets With Virtual Job Fair Aug. 23


Military service members, veterans and spouses can attend this job fair without ever leaving home.

Hire Heroes USA is holding a free virtual career fair on Aug. 23 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. EDT — aka between 1000 and 1500 hours.

According to the site’s FAQ page, participants only need a computer and internet access, as employers will communicate via onlinechats. Updated versions of Google Chrome or Firefox are recommended for viewing and hearing presentations from employers.

Attendees can register for the event on the site and upload their resumes, then search the 38 participating employers by location and positions available.

When they find a company of interest, job seekers can apply for a position or sign up for chat sessions to ask questions and learn more about the company.

Employers and attendees can also request private chats to discuss specific opportunities. Employers may offer video one-on-one chats, but these sessions are not required if job seekers don’t have access to video conferencing.

The site encourages job seekers to prepare questions to ask in the chat room and develop an elevator pitch for private interactions with potential employers. We have additional tips from veterans about finding a civilian career.

If this virtual fair isn’t for you, check out our list of other employment resources for veterans.

Everyone Gets Free Soft Pretzels This Monday at Philly Pretzel Factory


Every year, I look forward to National Pretzel Day just as much as Stanley looks forward to Pretzel Day on “The Office.” Maybe it’s because my family’s weekend tradition was going to the mall just for something to do, and stopping for soft pretzels was always part of the plan.

And freshly made soft pretzels are even better when they’re free. This Monday, we can all enjoy a free soft pretzel at Philly Pretzel Factory.

How to Get a Free Pretzel at Philly Pretzel Factory This Monday

Philly Pretzel Factory co-founder Dan DiZio started selling pretzels at a busy intersection in Philadelphia at age 11 — and after graduating college, he and his college roommate turned his childhood side gig into a booming business.

Now, Philly Pretzel Factory is celebrating 20 years of serving up “hot outta the oven” soft pretzels with free pretzels for everyone on Monday, Aug. 20. And there is no purchase necessary — your fresh, buttery soft pretzel will be totally free.

Plus, you’ll have a chance to win free pretzels for a year! Just be sure to fill out a ballot card when you stop in for your free pretzel.

And don’t worry: You don’t have to take a trip to Philly to get in on this deal. Although the original Philly Pretzel Factory was started in Philadelphia, there are now more than 100 locations across 12 states.

Jessica Gray is an editorial assistant at The Penny Hoarder. She once celebrated quitting a horrible job by stopping by the mall for a soft pretzel before heading home to watch “Office Space.”

12 Steps to Take Care of Your Money After Landing Your First Grown-up Job


You did it. You’re free! With a college diploma in your hand, you run out to take the world by storm. It’s time to show everyone just how awesome you can do the adulting thing.

Then the bills start rushing in like your college buddies at a happy hour taco bar.

Getting that first real job might not happen just as you hope. For 2017 Florida State graduate Hannah Bartholomew, the job market wasn’t quite what she had expected.

“They really blow salaries out of proportion in college,” she says. “They really exaggerate what you’ll be making out of college. I had to think, ‘What is the very minimum I can make?’”

So even when you do find a job in your field, you might not be cashing checks as big as you thought.

But you’re in the real world now, and it’s time to give yourself a reality check.

How to Manage Your Finances After You Get a Real Job

Here are a few ideas to start your financial life off on the right foot.

1. Get a Few Bucks for That Futon

One of the first things you want to do when you get a good job is to upgrade your home, even if it’s still a one-bedroom rental. No more futons and framed Bob Marley posters. You’re ready for a sectional sofa and some real art.

But don’t just shove that stuff into your car and take it to the donation stop. It still has value to somebody. Sell it!

You can sell virtually anything on Letgo. This intuitive app lets you snap a photo and list your item in less than 30 seconds. It removes a lot of the hassle of selling things online, and it’s 100% free to use.

2. Start Budgeting — Without Giving up on Fun

The dreaded B-word. Budget. It doesn’t have to be as scary as you think. Having a budget doesn’t mean you have to cut out any and all fun things in your life. It just means you are focusing your finances enough to meet your goals.

“When I graduated, honestly, my primary goal was to find a way to support myself and not have to move back in with my parents,” says Bartholomew.

Talk about life goals. We’ve all been there.

If you’re a bit nervous about setting a budget, consider the 50/20/30 budget. It’s easy, and it gives you plenty of wiggle room because, face it, you still want to hit that happy hour taco bar once in a while, right?

Here’s how it works. Every month you set aside:

  • 50% of your income for essentials, like rent or mortgage, groceries, utilities, car insurance and other important bills.
  • 20% for your financial goals, like retirement savings, paying down your college debt or even saving for a home.
  • 30% for your personal spending. These are your funds for dining out, drinks with friends, Netflix, travel, shopping, etc. That’s a pretty big chunk of money you get to play with each month.

The trick to this budget, like any, is to stick to it. You’ll make progress on your financial goals while still having a life.

3. Break up With Your High School Bank

“The bank that I use is a local credit union that I’ve used my whole life,” says Bartholomew. “Quite honestly, it’s a hassle to switch banks.”

Quick… why do you bank where you bank? Like Hannah, it’s probably because that’s where your family has always done their banking business. But other options offer perks you might not have considered.

Take, for example, the option to get your shiny new paycheck a couple of days early. If that idea sounds good to you, you should check out Chime.

Unlike most banks, this online bank won’t wait until your pay date to get your money. As soon as it receives notification of a direct deposit from your employer, it immediately posts those funds to your account — up to two days before payday.

Who doesn’t want to get paid early?

Opening an account with Chime is free and only takes about five minutes.

4. Take Care of Your Student Loans

Now that you have your diploma in hand and you’re gainfully employed, you’re going to have to start paying back those student loans.

Ugh.

Do your loans have a good interest rate? Finding a lower rate can help you spend less on interest and pay off those loans faster.

Consider refinancing for a better rate.

An easy way to do this is with LendKey, a service that allows you to quickly browse low-interest loans from credit unions and community banks.

That’s LendKey’s secret sauce. Compared to the big national bank chains, smaller community banks often offer more borrower-friendly loan terms — namely, lower interest rates and more flexibility.

LendKey’s simple, straightforward online platform can help you find and apply for the right loan without visiting a dozen bank branches.

And if you’ve been turned down by other lenders, don’t fret. LendKey has more lenient credit score minimums and income requirements for applicants, so you have a better shot at getting a loan through the company.

Plus, when you’re approved for a loan you applied for through LendKey, you’ll get a $ 100 bonus after the loan is disbursed. That’s a hundred bucks you can put right toward paying down your new, lower-interest student loan. Boom!

5. Pay Attention to This Score (It’s Not a Game)

Your credit score is important. You’ve heard that. But, now that you’re adulting, it’s time to take it seriously.

Did you know your credit score could be inaccurate? One out of five credit reports have an error, according to a study by the Federal Trade Commission.

To keep a closer eye on your credit, get your credit score and a “credit report card” for free from Credit Sesame. It breaks down exactly what’s on your credit report in layman’s terms, how it affects your score and how to address it.

Because it simplifies everything, you should be able to spot any errors. For instance, if you find an “unpaid” credit card that you know you paid, or a bill in collections you know never existed, you can dispute the incorrect information and raise your credit score.

Now that you have a great job, get a handle on your credit score and start making it shine.

6. Pay Your Bills

Adulting means paying bills. The good news is with your new job, you can afford to pay them. You just need to remember to do it.

How about getting rewards for paying your bills on time?

An app called MoneyLion offers rewards to help you develop healthy financial habits and will literally pay you for logging onto the app.

You can earn points in the rewards program by paying bills on time, connecting your bank account or downloading the mobile app.

You can redeem those points for gift cards to retailers like Amazon, Apple and Walmart.

7. Stop Calling Mom and Dad for Emergency Money

There might have been a time when you could just pick up the phone and call Mom or Dad when your car went on the fritz or you had to pay for a quick trip to urgent care.

Welcome to the real world. You have a career now, so it’s up to you to prepare for those little life speed bumps with an emergency fund.

An emergency fund should be able to help you out with small emergencies, like a car repair, as well as tougher times, like finding yourself out of work for a bit. A savings account with three to six months of income is typically recommended.

Don’t worry. You don’t need to have it all set right away, but you should set up a plan to start building that fund. Consider it a buffer between you and living in your parents’ basement. Yeah, your old room is now Mom’s she-den. You didn’t know that? Sorry.

8. Start Thinking About Retirement (Yes, Already)

If you’re just starting out with your 401(k) plan at your new job, do everything you can to put it into high gear. You can really make a difference in these early years.

It takes more than just taking that 3% out of your paycheck, though.

Chances are, your 401(k) could be doing a lot better. Take control with help from Blooom, an SEC-registered investment advisory firm that can optimize and monitor your 401(k) for you and keep it speeding toward retirement.

It just takes a few minutes to get a free 401(k) analysis that will show you whether your investments are allocated properly and whether you’re losing money paying hidden investment fees.

It’ll even tell you just how much more money your account could earn by the time you want to retire. At your age, you might be able to make a significant difference.

After that, if you sign up, it’s just $ 10 per month to have Blooom monitor and maximize your 401(k). Bonus: Penny Hoarders get the first month free with the code PNNYHRD.

9. You’re Ready to Invest (No, Really)

Investing? You’re used to just trying to pay the rent!

It’s OK, you can start small with Acorns. The app lets you stack up change over time with its “round-up” feature. That means if you spend $ 10.23 at the grocery store, 77 cents gets dropped into your Acorns account.

Then, the app does the whole investing thing for you.

The idea is you won’t miss the digital pocket change, and the automatic savings stack up faster than you’d think. For example, we reviewed how Penny Hoarder Dana Sitar was able to save at a rate of $ 420 a year!

At that rate, you could set aside $ 1,000 in about two and a half years — without trying.

The app is $ 1 a month for balances under $ 1 million, and you’ll get a $ 5 bonus when you sign up.

10. Don’t Pay Full Price… Ever

These days, there is no reason to pay full price for anything… ever. OK, maybe you pay upfront, but you should at least get some money back, right?

One of our favorite ways to save is with Ebates, a cash-back site that rewards you nearly every time you buy something. For example, Ebates gives you 10% cash-back on online purchases at Walmart.

Plus, you’ll get a free $ 10 gift card to Walmart for giving the site a try.

To earn your gift card:

  1. Sign up for Ebates with your email or Facebook account.
  2. Use the Ebates portal the next time you need to buy something. It’s connected to thousands of stores, including Walmart, Amazon and Target. You’ll need to make your first purchase through the site within 90 days and spend at least $ 25.
  3. Your account will be credited with rewards points you can cash in for your $ 10 Walmart gift card.

Seriously, it’s too easy not to use. You’re buying that stuff online anyway so why not get some money back?

11. Deal With the College Credit You Didn’t Want

A lot of us are being crushed by credit card interest rates north of 20%. It’s OK. It’s the same scoop for a lot of recent grads. If you’re in that boat, consolidation and refinancing might be worth a look.

A good resource is consumer financial technology platform Even Financial, which can help match you with the right personal loan to meet your needs.

Even searches the top online lenders to match you with a personalized loan offer in less than 60 seconds. Its platform can help you borrow up to $ 100,000 (no collateral needed) with fixed rates starting at 4.99% and terms from 24 to 84 months.

You want to keep you college memories forever, not the credit card bills you racked up. A better interest rate will make them disappear like your freshman-year roommate.

12. Figure out Where You Fall on the Adulting Curve

As Bartholomew took stock of her new situation, she had to keep the big picture in mind.

“I make enough money to pay my bills and to save an acceptable amount of what I make,” she says. “But you think about the American dream of buying a home, owning property or being debt-free… that’s something that comes to mind the most.”

But do you know how your financial plan is stacking up your friends’? Admit it. You want to know. What if your friends or relatives your age a getting out of debt and saving way faster than you?

Status Money is an app that allows you to anonymously compare your financial situation with your peers’ without asking those awkward, prying questions. Tap into this database, and you’ll be able to compare your income, debt, interest rates, credit score, spending… you name it.

By seeing how others are doing, you can see what you need to work on — or where you can sit back a little and just breathe easy.

Now Relax. You’ve Done the Hard Part.

You’re at an exciting point in your life. Landing that first “real” job is fun, but it can also be a little intimidating. Life is going to expect a little more of you now.

By taking a good look at your finances now, you can set yourself up for a great financial future. The toughest part is making the decision to do it.

So now what? Did someone say “taco bar”?

NASA Is Giving a Few a Chance to Design Homes On Mars

Mars, which may or may not have life on it, may be getting a few creatively designed homes.

NASA has chosen five winners to create innovative 3-D printed homes for human visitors to the red planet. Since the first phase of the $ 3.15 million competition kicked off in 2014, 18 teams have worked to print virtual models of an environmentally-conscious Mars house that could be built using recycled material and “indigenous resources” like Martian rocks or nearby debris.

According to Quartz, each of the five winners received around $ 20,000 for their designs.

“We are thrilled to see the success of this diverse group of teams that have approached this competition in their own unique styles,” said Monsi Roman, program manager for NASA’s Centennial Challenges. “They are not just designing structures, they are designing habitats that will allow our space explorers to live and work on other planets.”

According to Roman, the first extraterrestrial 3-D printed house could be ready “somewhere around late 2030.”

In the next and final stage of the competition, NASA will challenge the remaining competitors to focus on building the robot that could autonomously print part of the design. The final winner will get $ 2 million in prize money.

“We are excited to see their designs come to life as the competition moves forward,” said Roman.

T-Mobile announcement: How the wireless provider is changing customer service

T-Mobile has announced its latest “Un-carrier” move — and it’s all about customer service.

Speaking to a crowd in Charleston, South Carolina, CEO John Legere and company officials said customer service everywhere is broken and T-Mobile’s latest action will take steps to fix that.

Legere told the audience that this change is personal and was years in the making.

RELATED: Best cell phone plans and deals right now

T-Mobile: Real customer service = Real people 

Here’s the deal: T-Mobile says it’s launching a concept it calls “Team of Experts” nationwide. Instead of investing in avoiding customers, T-Mobile says it’s investing in serving them.

For subscribers, that means no more robots, automated systems or transfers when you need to call customer service.

As a T-Mobile subscriber, you’ll have access to a team of real people — the experts — who can troubleshoot issues with your service or phone without the headaches.

To do this, T-Mobile has different experts available to you sitting in the same workspace to eliminate the “call center runaround.”

Company officials say waiting on hold can’t be avoided completely, but customers will have the option of scheduling a time for someone to call them back if that happens.

“‘Your call is important to us’ are the six emptiest words ever robo-spoken,” said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. “People are fed up with horrible customer service that puts cost control ahead of customer happiness. While other brands mechanize customer service, we’re going the other way – no bots, no bouncing, no BS. With Team of Experts, we’re tearing up the traditional playbook, killing the phone menu and putting people at the center of customer care, like they should be. Because at T-Mobile, our customers have always been rock stars to us.”

Pandora and Live Nation perks

To celebrate the news, T-Mobile is giving customers a free Pandora Plus music subscription for a year. You can unlock the subscription on August 28 in the T-Mobile Tuesdays app.

The company has also partnered with Live Nation to provide T-Mobile customers with discounted tickets and other perks.

Before the announcement, Legere attacked competitors Verizon and AT&T for their wireless offerings, but he didn’t mention Sprint. T-Mobile is currently trying to merge with Sprint.

You can follow along and watch the live stream on T-Mobile’s website. We’ll update this story with more details as we get them.

Night Owl? These 7 Strategies Can Help You Start Your Mornings Off Right


How many alarms do you set to wake up in the morning?

If you said one or two, then you’re doing better than me. Try four separate alarms, and that’s not counting how many times I hit the snooze button. The constant sound of the iPhone marimba jingle at 6:15 a.m. (and usually 6:25 and so on…) is the price I pay for being a night owl.

When others start to wind down in the evening, I get a rush of energy. That’s my time to fold laundry, catch up on podcasts and try to make sense of the timeline hopping going on in “Westworld.”

If I could set my own schedule, I’d stay up until 1 a.m. and wake up around 9 a.m. Unfortunately, the business world doesn’t operate like that. Mornings come hard and fast, leaving me discombobulated as I try to extract as much sleep as I can before rushing out the door to get to work.

Does that sound like you? I tracked down some fellow night owls who shared these seven tips and tricks on how they get up and jump-start their mornings.

Stick to the Plan

Kelli Ordonia, who works as an internal operations supervisor in the residential construction industry, has never been able to go to bed until tomorrow has already started. Years of staying up late reading books, surfing the web and getting chores done have hardwired her to stay up past midnight.

A good morning starts the night before, and Ordonia sticks to a plan to make it happen.

In college, she discovered a Tumblr post that included a checklist on how to make mornings run smoothly, with to-dos to complete before going to bed. She prepares her lunch, lays out her clothes and puts her keys in the same spot.

“I go through it step-by-step in my head and I think, ‘What can I do ahead of time? Can I lay it out so it’ll be easy for me?’” says Ordonia, 28, from Winter Park, Florida. “It also helps me power down before bed.”

Get a Little Help From Your Four-Legged Friends

For Michael Mann, a enterprise telecommunications account sales manager and life-long night owl, a cell phone alarm isn’t enough to get his morning started. That’s why he gets a little help from his four-legged friends.

When Mann’s alarm goes off, his pet pit bull Reagan licks his face, and his Italian Greyhound Theodore barks until Mann gets out of bed. And if he dares to hit the snooze button, Reagan sits on him until he’s up.

Back in college, Mann would sometimes stay up until  4 a.m. — “because, you know, it was college.” He wanted to find a way to have Reagan help him get up in the morning. So Mann started immediately walking the dog from his room to her bowl to feed her as soon as his alarm went off. After about a month, Reagan got with the program and started helping her owner get going.

“If my alarm goes off, [my dogs] know it’s food time,” says Mann, 24, who lives in Tampa, Florida. “It helps me get up because to feed them, I can’t hit snooze. I have to get on my feet.”

As a night owl who runs her own business, Sacha Brant has the freedom to work when she feels most creative. Brant, the founder and CEO of SassyLasses.com, works late into the night building websites for growing businesses. She likes the schedule — until a client needs her early in the morning.

When Brant has to wake up before dawn to collaborate with clients several time zones ahead, she greets the day with a personal sunrise.

Brant finds sound alarms jarring, leaving her grouchy. So, she kicked her buzzing alarm clock to the curb and bought a light alarm clock. These devices are designed to mimic a sunrise by gradually illuminating over the course of a half-hour before you need to get up. Brant finds sound alarms jarring, leaving her grouchy.

“So if I have to get up at o-dark-thirty and I really, really don’t want to, I will set the [light] alarm,” says Brant, 33, from Kitimat, British Columbia. “By the time it’s getting up to full strength, I’m awake, and I feel like I woke up naturally.”

“Hulk Smash” Some Water

If Sarah Snyder were a superhero, her one weakness would be “brain fog,” that groggy feeling that causes a lack of focus that can linger throughout the morning.

Battling brain fog makes it harder for 36-year-old Snyder of Austin, Texas, to run her public relations company, Powerful Approach. She obliterates brain fog by gulping from a cup featuring her favorite superhero — The Incredible Hulk.

Snyder chugs 32 ounces of water from her Hulk cup each morning after brushing her teeth. Twenty ounces is not enough, she says, and anything more than 32 is too much.

“It helps clear my brain, helps get me going and helps jump-start the day,” Snyder says. “It kind of shocks you awake a little bit, so that has been super helpful to me.”

Simplify Your Wardrobe

One of the most significant time-wasters when getting ready for work is deciding what to wear. Even if you lay out your clothes the night before, it still takes time finding all the pieces that make up your ensemble. Ordonia figured out that the best way to speed up her routine was to simplify her options.

“I’ve essentially made a uniform for myself,” she says. Each night, she chooses one of her “six or seven” company polo shirts. (She does her makeup the same way each morning, too.)  Never having to spend time choosing what to wear helps get her out the door on time.

The Power of Positive Thinking

More than six months ago, Snyder decided to try something different with her evening and morning routines. Instead of going to bed dreading to wake up, she started to consider the positives of her upcoming day.

Each night, she uses an app to record herself saying personal affirmations. She also reads from a gratitude list. In the morning, Snyder re-reads the list and listens to her affirmations — all so she can look forward to the exciting day ahead.

She recites phrases like “Today has many wonderful things I can accomplish” and “I’m a positive person.” The practice has yielded results.

“A lot of times I’ll text my friends in the morning and they’ve noticed that I’m more cheerful and energetic,” she says. “I have noticed that it’s significantly easier for me to come straight in [in] the morning and get my work done.”

If All Else Fails, Use Hot Sauce

If light alarms, pets and affirmations don’t work, Brant suggests spicing up your morning. She says drinking hot sauce is one of those “in-a-pinch” strategies that will get you moving — most likely running to the sink for some water.

“If your mouth is on fire, do you think you could go back to sleep?” Brant says. “No, nobody can.”

Her husband is a hot sauce fiend who has several bottles filled with exotic liquids made from peppers ranking high on the Scoville scale.

“I don’t want to start with the hot sauce if I don’t have to,” she says, “but if my lazy buns don’t want to get up and get going, well — happy hot sauce day.”

This Guy Turned a Basement Full of Garbage Into a $30K/Month Business


Alex Broches has been broke, homeless and suicidal.

But those low points are well behind him now that he’s running a successful business. What’s it built on?

Garbage.

Broches owns and operates The Junk Removal Dudes, which he describes as a cross between movers and garbage men. He’s been pleasantly surprised to discover that there are a whole lot of people with junk to get rid of.

“In a slow month, we’ll do like $ 8,000 to $ 10,000, gross sales,” says Broches, whose business services northern Illinois. “In a busy month, we’ll do around $ 30,000.”

Starting a Junk Removal Business

The Junk Removal Dudes began back in 2015 when Broches’ mother, who owns a house-cleaning business, asked him to clear the junk from one of her client’s basements.

Broches split the first job with a friend who had a pickup truck. The duo hauled away old toys, holiday decorations and furniture. They made $ 200 for less than an hour’s work.

“[I did] it for the extra money and just to help,” the 30-year-old entrepreneur says. “And afterward, I was like, ‘Huh, that was kind of fun, actually.’”  

Within a week, Broches’ mom referred another customer, so he borrowed his friend’s truck again. And again.

“More calls started coming in; my mom kept sending me more customers… and I’m like, ‘There might be some money in this, actually,’” Broches says. “So a couple weeks passed by. I started a website, put it on Google and then the calls really started to come in.”

Broches now has five employees and expects to double that number within the next few months. He’s considering franchising next year if the company continues to grow.

After he scored his third client, Broches stopped borrowing the truck and invested in his own — the company now has three trucks in its fleet.

Turning Garbage Into Gold

Broches admits that cleaning out basements, barns and hoarders’ homes might not be everyone’s idea of a dream job.

Some people would be grossed out a little bit,” says Broches, who says he’s cleaned out places that range from a musty basement full of cobwebs to a garage infested with maggots.

But his most unusual find? Pickles.

“[A woman] died and we had to go clean the property,” Broches says. “In the basement, she had tons and tons of jars of pickles that she was collecting since the 1970s… She had these little notes in the house saying, ‘Hey, if the world is going to end, this is what I’m going to eat to survive for a couple months.’

“That one was a little out there.”

With the exception of the pickle lady, most of Broches’ clients are older people and their relatives clearing out houses. The jobs have produced all kinds of interesting finds, including family photos from the early 1900s, antique dolls and a full-size knight’s armor.

“I’m like a kid in a candy store,” Broches says. “It doesn’t even seem like work to me — it just seems like every day is an adventure.”

Darkness Before the Light

Broches’ success in the garbage removal business was built on a heap of other failed ventures.

Along with a string of unfulfilling jobs, Broches launched a lawn care service but lost the money he made — plus thousands more that he borrowed from his mom and brother — investing in a social media website he started at age 21.

He says that each job left him feeling more depressed until he was convinced he would never succeed.

“All the times I failed and failed and failed — at the time, I thought it was the end of the world,” says Broches, who details his personal and professional struggles in the book A Dark Path to Light. “Everything was going down. I lost all my money, my mental health, my physical health.”

At his lowest point, he walked out to the woods in his backyard with a rope in hand, Broches chronicles in his book. After a long night contemplating suicide, he decided he had to stop brooding over the failures and instead focus on improving his mental, physical and fiscal health.

Learning From the Biggest Mistake

The failure of Broches’ website, College Junkee, was particularly painful for him, as his attempts to obtain funding for it were featured on MTV’s “True Life.” In the episode, he pitched the website to OKCupid CEO Sam Yagan, who eviscerated College Junkee, rating it a 1 out of 10 for being useless and nonfunctional.

“With the internet startup idea that I had… I thought if I just keep putting money into it — advertising, whatever — it would get better,” Broches says. “I just didn’t know what I was doing.”

In retrospect, the experience taught him the skills he needed to build a successful junk removal business.

“I realized that those were all valuable learning lessons — how to deal with customers, how to improve a business, how to streamline business,” Broches says. “I realized with this business that I had to think lean… And I’m proud to say that this [junk removal] business that I started was net profitable after day one.”

Passing Along his Wisdom

Among Broches employees is 18-year-old Adam Cyr, who has worked for him part-time for just over a year.

Cyr, who plans to go to college to study engineering, says Broches has always been generous about sharing what he’s learned about entrepreneurship.

I could see myself down the line starting my own engineering firm,” Cyr says. “[Broches] has always offered — if I ever needed some advice for starting a business.”

Broches’ chief piece of advice to other entrepreneurs: Don’t be afraid to fail.

“Take risks because the thing is, if you win, then you’re successful, but if you lose, you’re wiser,” Broches says, adding that his previous business setbacks were “almost necessary” to become successful.

The only true failures, Broches says, are people who are too afraid to try and who thus miss out on the opportunity to do something they love.

“I don’t think there’s anything worse than regret,” Broches says. “I think regret is worse than death.”

Term Sheet — Monday, August 13

SOLVING THE TESLA PUZZLE

Good morning, Term Sheet readers.

BREAKING: Right as I was about to press “send” on this newsletter, I saw this: Elon Musk published an update on taking Tesla private.

In a Q&A style blog post, Musk answers questions such as “Why did I make a public announcement” and “why did I say ‘funding secured.’ In regards to the latter, he explains that Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) had approached him “multiple times about taking Tesla private” since the beginning of 2017. The two groups reportedly held several meetings over the next year to try to move forward with a going private transaction.

Musk adds, “Obviously, the Saudi sovereign fund has more than enough capital needed to execute on such a transaction.”

After the Saudi fund bought almost 5% of Tesla stock through the public markets, they reportedly reached out about another meeting. That meeting took place on July 31st, Musk writes.

After meeting with the managing director of the fund, Musk was led to believe that “no other decision makers were needed and that they were eager to proceed.”

“I left the July 31st meeting with no question that a deal with the Saudi sovereign fund could be closed, and that it was just a matter of getting the process moving,” he said. “This is why I referred to ‘funding secured’ in the August 7th announcement.

So this begs the question: Was funding actually secured?…Or did Musk just come away from the meeting with the belief/hope/idea that the PIF would invest without funding actually being secured? Not sure how the SEC will feel about all that.

Musk explains that the PIF’s managing director “has expressed support for proceeding subject to financial and other due diligence.” The director has also reportedly asked for additional details on how the company would be taken private, including any required percentages and any regulatory requirements.

And then it gets even murkier. Musk says he’s also having discussions with a number of other investors….Like someone aptly said on Twitter, “It’s not not the Saudis, basically.”

Musk also said he’s been reaching out to Tesla’s largest shareholders and that most of the capital required to take the company private will be funded by equity, rather than debt.

“The $ 420 buyout price would only be used for Tesla shareholders who do not remain with our company if it is private,” he wrote in the blog post. “My best estimate right now is that approximately two-thirds of shares owned by all current investors would roll over into a private Tesla.”

Over the last few weeks, several Term Sheet readers have e-mailed me with thoughts on what’s going on. I got everything from “Impossible to have lined up the financing to take this dog private!” to “End of the day, Musk is once again letting his ego and mouth take over and at some point it will cost him dearly — it is just a matter of time.”

But after all, it’s Elon Musk, we’re talking about. And with Elon Musk, it feels like everything is on the table at all times.

On Point

[bs-title]The NFL pre-take-a-knee season is here[/bs-title][bs-content]Several players have already either taken a knee for, raised a fist during or sat out the national anthem entirely, a pretty clear sign that the quiet protests are not going to stop. The league recently suspended a policy barring these demonstrations, which are clearly designed to draw attention to racial injustice, particularly in the criminal justice system. “I just think it’s important to keep this conversation going, that we don’t let it get stagnant,” Eagles captain Malcolm Jenkins, told NFL.com. President Trump fired off two tweets in response. “Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their ‘outrage’ at something that most of them are unable to define. They make a fortune doing what they love,” he wrote.[/bs-content][bs-link link=”https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/09/sport/nfl-national-anthem-preseason-games/index.html” source=”CNN”]

[bs-title]The price we pay for rationalizing white supremacy[/bs-title][bs-content]Adam Serwer has done the Lord’s work in his latest piece for The Atlantic, first documenting the personal downfalls of many of the messier Unite the Right organizers since last year’s deadly rally. These clowns will never be able to truly launch a mass movement, he declares. But, he says, those individual consequences pale in comparison to the wreckage the infiltration of racist talking points in mainstream news has done to the Republican party. For one, average voters now see immigrants as invaders, not recruits. “White nationalists win by activating white panic, by frightening a sufficient number of white people into believing that their safety and livelihoods can only be protected by defining American citizenship in racial terms,” he says, a tactic as old as America itself. It gains traction “by convincing them that American politics is a zero-sum game in which white people only win when people of color lose.”[/bs-content][bs-link link=”https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2018/08/the-battle-that-erupted-in-charlottesville-is-far-from-over/567167/” source=”The Atlantic”]

[bs-title]Here’s why the Unite the Right anniversary rally is going to be in Washington DC instead of Charlottesville[/bs-title][bs-content]The answer is a mixed bag of legal protections, loopholes, and luck. White supremacist groups are prevented from re-rallying in Charlottesville because of a subsequent legal settlement based on Virginia’s “constitutional subordination clause,” which helped establish that the paramilitary “militia” groups who assembled last year far exceeded First Amendment protections. That precedent is giving beleaguered state managers hope to better control future rallies since all 50 states have similar language in their constitutions. But the District of Columbia is not a state and the rallies technically fall on federal land.

[bs-title]The world’s top empathy researcher is in trouble for bullying in the workplace[/bs-title][bs-content]It’s a tale as old as time: The love guru who can’t get a date, the stock-picking genius without a dime to their name. But as a self-proclaimed schadenfreude expert, this is a twist I hadn’t seen before. Tania Singer, a neuroscientist and director at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany is under fire for her terrifying workplace behavior. “Whenever anyone had a meeting with her there was at least an even chance they would come out in tears,” one colleague who insisted on anonymity. Her work has been vital to the field of social neuroscience, and she’s long been lauded for her vision and ability to generate support for complex projects -which is really why the story should sound familiar. At what price, success? “It appears the Max Planck Society decided it would rather sacrifice another generation of students than risk a scandal,” says one former colleague.[/bs-content][bs-link link=”http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2018/08/she-s-world-s-top-empathy-researcher-colleagues-say-she-bullied-and-intimidated-them” source=”Science”]

[bs-title]What hate looks like in school[/bs-title][bs-content]Education Week, along with nonprofit news organization ProPublica, analyzed three years of public news reports and self-reported incidents of hate and bias in K-12 schools in the U.S. The resulting project, Documenting Hate, is a grim look at the rise in hate speech in school settings, and the scramble to identify both reasons and solutions. Most incidents between January 2015 and December 2017 targeted black and Latino students, though plenty of Jewish and Muslim students were targeted as well. Most of the incidents were spoken or written hate speech incidents. The speech in question will shock but not surprise: the most common words involved the n-word, “build the wall” or “go back to Mexico”, and the most common hate symbol was the swastika. The largest number of reports on a single day was November 9, 2016–the day after Trump’s election. “I don’t think my classmates and teachers really grasp the pain we feel,” says one student.[/bs-content][bs-link link=”https://www.edweek.org/ew/projects/hate-in-schools.html” source=”Education Week”]

[bs-title]In the future, all punishment will be meted out by the fashion police[/bs-title][bs-content]Even if high fashion isn’t really your thing, you can still enjoy the uniquely vicious critique that fashion legend, Vogue contributing editor and caftan-wearer Andr? Leon Talley levels on Paul Manafort’s high priced wardrobe. First, he puts him into the context of history, as the “alpha gangster of the moment.” In some ways, he’s aspirational. “He has taken lavish luxury and gangster greed to the highest level,” he begins. And yet, he falls short. After reviewing photos of the clothes, he says, “these are not the clothes…one would aspire to.” The price tag smacks of money laundering, he says. “People just don’t spend that kind of money in their clothing.” You’ll never look at plaid the same way, or ostrich clothing, for that matter. “An ostrich baseball style jacket. Where do you wear that when you’re Paul Manafort. Where do you go?”[/bs-content][bs-link link=”https://twitter.com/vicenews/status/1027600393591775232?s=20″ source=”Vice News”]

The argument, which made it all the way to the Supreme Court, challenged the practice of using “peremptory strikes,” which allow lawyers to remove jurors from service without reason. The problem, his ragtag legal team discovered, was that prosecutors were doing it all over the country to racially stack juries.[/bs-content][bs-link link=”https://www.wnycstudios.org/story/object-anyway/” source=”WNYC Studios”]

[bs-quote link=”http://www.publicseminar.org/2017/01/white-supremacy-fear-and-the-crises-of-legitimation/#.WG0SI2WCs4K” author =”Melvin Rogers”]In the wake of similar high-profile police shootings where wrongdoing seems so clear but goes unpunished, the Slager trial crystallizes what many believe — that police officers can kill black Americans with impunity. The greatest obstacle to freedom and equality thus appears to be a society in which citizens are habituated to recognize some among themselves as worthy of care, concern, and justice, while believing they can withhold these important moral goods from others. Black Americans thus find themselves living in a society in which they are asked to follow the law, and yet, are simultaneously unprotected by political and legal institutions. The direction of loyalty goes from black Americans to the state, but not the other way.[/bs-quote]

SPECIAL SHOE DISCOUNT UPDATE:

Here’s how long $1 million will last in retirement in all 50 states

Will $ 1 million be enough for you to retire comfortably on in your golden years? It turns out that depends heavily on where you live in the United States!

RELATED: See the Top 10 things money expert Clark Howard does to save money

Would you move to make your retirement money last longer?

What would you say if we said that you could get another 14 years out of your retirement money depending on where you lived in the USA?

GoBankingRates.com took a close look at monthly expenses for senior citizens — including groceries, housing, utilities, transportation and healthcare — and developed a monthly budget for the average person over age 65.

Then, accounting for cost-of-living expenses by state, they divided a hypothetical $ 1 million portfolio by the monthly budget they worked up. That determined the number of years $ 1 million would last in each state during retirement.

The net result is that while you could live for less than 12 years on a $ 1 million portfolio in Hawaii, you would get almost 26 years out of the same money in Mississippi!

Ever heard the saying, “All real estate is local”? Maybe we should say that “All retirement is local, too”!

Without further ado, here’s a look at how far your retirement money goes in each state of the Union:

  • $ 1 million will last: 11 years, 8 months, 20 days

Meanwhile, let’s not forget that some retirees will decide to abandon the question of which state will give them the most bang for their buck in retirement.

They’ll just opt to move overseas, where their money goes a lot further!

Countries like Canada, Japan, Mexico, Germany and the United Kingdom are historically among the most popular spots for expatriate retirees. But Central American nations like Costa Rica are becoming increasingly sought out, too.

If you’re considering leaving the United States in your retirement years, you’ve got a lot more to consider than just cost and weather.

Money expert Clark Howard says you should also think about less-considered factors like the cost of medical evacuation insurance and the state of the rental market in whichever foreign country you’re eyeing. Get the full rundown on his thoughts here.

Brock Turner, Convicted of Rape, Loses Appeal That Relied on ‘Outercourse’ Argument

A former member of Stanford’s swim team, Brock Turner, lost an appeal of his conviction on three counts of rape for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman in 2015. His attorney argued that because Turner was clothed and hadn’t penetrated the woman with his genitals, that no intent to rape occurred, and described it as “sexual outercourse.”

A jury had found Turner guilty of assault with an intent to commit rape, as well as two counts related to using a foreign object to penetrate a person while intoxicated or unconscious. His victim was both. Her identity remains private.

The three judges on California’s 6th District Court of Appeal disagreed that errors had occurred in the trial, and denied the appeal. An appeal typically relies on faults during a trial in jury instructions or errors of law in a judge’s decision. During the appeals hearing on July 25, Justice Franklin Elia told Turner’s lawyer, “I absolutely don’t understand what you are talking about.”

The appeal related partly to the consequences of conviction, as Turner served only a short sentence. But as the crime occurred when he was an adult, the felonies remain on his record, and he will remain a registered sex offender throughout his life.

The Turner case had already received national attention, when the trial judge, Aaron Persky, imposed a six-month sentence while making statements that seemingly favored Turner rather than the rape victim. “A prison sentence would have a severe impact on him,” Persky said during sentencing. Prosecutors had asked for a six-year sentence and the maximum was 14 years. Turner served just three months based on good conduct in jail.

Persky was recalled as judge in June 2018, the first judge in the state removed from office since 1932. Meanwhile, California passed a law requiring a minimum sentence in sexual assault cases.

Coinbase Poaches AWS Exec to Lead Engineering

Cryptocurrency giant Coinbase announced on Monday it has hired Tim Wagner, a veteran of Amazon Web Services, to be its vice president of engineering.

In a blog post announcing the hire, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong described engineering as core to its strategy of building cryptocurrency products, and said Wagner would be leading and expanding its team of engineers.

“[W]e are more focused than ever on meeting the increasing needs of individuals, institutions and businesses while continually advancing the frontiers of cryptocurrency. At the same time, we’re creating the infrastructure that will allow us to add more assets to our platform and accelerate the adoption of crypto around the world,” Armstrong wrote in the blog post.

Wagner’s hiring is significant in part because he played a key role in building AWS Lambda, a server-less computing platform with a strong reputation for security. He has also worked on app and API services for Amazon. Prior to Amazon, Wagner worked at Microsoft.

The news also represents the latest in a series of high-profile hires by Coinbase in the last six months. Others include Emilie Choi, head of business development who previously led M&A at LinkedIn, and Twitter operations veteran Tina Bhatnagar, who was hired to smooth out customer relations at Coinbase.

The hirings come at a time when a growing number of large firms, including Goldman Sachs and Intercontinental Exchange, are making plans to offer cryptocurrency products and services. Their entry would bring further competition to a market served by established crypto companies like Coinbase and Circle, and by more recent entrants like Robinhood and Square.

Peak Xi?

Last week I noted a flurry of stories in the Western press suggesting Xi Jinping might have “overplayed his hand” in asserting China’s claims to prominence on the global stage and sparring with Donald Trump on trade. This week the flurry flared into a storm.

On Tuesday, the New York Times gave prominent play to Chris Buckley’s analysis of an “erudite jeremiad” by Xu Zhangrun, an influential Chinese intellectual. Xu’s essay seemed to rebuke Xi for (among other things) exaggerating China’s military and technological prowess, stifling personal liberties, and attempting to resurrect the “cult of personality” rejected by China’s ruling elite after the death of Mao Zedong. On Friday, my former Washington Post colleague John Pomfret weighed in with an essay of his own describing China as gripped by an “overwhelming feeling of unease“–about the slowing economy, recurring corruption scandals, rampant destruction of the environment and a host of other challenges. Pomfret, also quoting at length from Xu, noted that many in China blame Xi for their nation’s malaise.

Common to many of the reassessments is the idea that Xi has fostered an reckless spirit of reckless “triumphalism” in China, bears personal responsibility for misreading Trump’s resolve on trade issues, thereby bungling relations with China’s most important trading partner. In the Financial Times Tom Mitchell discerns a “growing chorus of soto voce criticism” that Xi should not have “casually discarded” former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping’s policy of seeking to “hide China’s brightness.” In today’s Guardian, Lily Kuo ponders “cracks” in Xi’s aura of invincibility. On Bloomberg TV, Richard McGregor, a senior fellow at the Lowy Institute in Sydney, mused dryly that “we might have reached peak Xi Jinping.”

That would be an extraordinary shift in global sentiment. In the Western press, Xi has been variously described as “president for life,” “China’s modern Mao,” “the chairman of everything” and (my personal favorite) “Xi who must be obeyed.” Until only a few weeks ago, the conventional wisdom on Xi–the one thing that any self-respecting “Washington insider” could tell you about him at a cocktail party–was that the Chinese leader had an iron grip on power and, unlike Trump, didn’t need to worry about getting reelected. Pomfret faults Trump critics for transforming China into a rhetorical fantasyland, “a place with ever-increasing power, graphs that always go up and a permanently stable political system, in contrast to the failing United States.”

The key question, of course, is whether the morphing global Zeitgeist bears any correlation to machinations inside Zhongnanhai. Bill Bishop at Sinocism suggests not much. “Color me skeptical,” he writes, “that Xu’s letter will do anything other than lead to investigations of and crackdown on anyone associated with it.”

Financial Times columnist Martin Wolf, channeling Sean Connery’s “Chicago Way” speech in The Untouchables, argues that, far from trying to make peace, Xi should hit Trump with everything he’s got, tripling down on retaliatory tariffs and sticking American firms with investment and regulatory restrictions. Beijing’s announcement Friday that it has targeted an additional $ 60 billion worth of U.S. goods for tariffs suggests Xi intends to do just that. If nothing else, it now seems clear the two sides are digging in for a protracted standoff. Indeed, if Xi is battling perceptions of weakness, and if there is any truth to rumors that his domestic political position is more precarious than previously understood, perhaps that leaves him less willing to offer trade concessions rather than more.

Economy and Trade

Bad Apple. Apple has been criticized by state media for failing to curtail the spread of illegal content through its software and services. Five media outlets have panned the Californian icon this week, including state broadcaster CCTV, which ran a half-hour special report on Apple’s shortcomings. The main complaints are that Apple allows gambling apps to feature on the App Store and permits spam to be sent through iMessage. An analyst at Canalys said the criticisms should be viewed as part of the ongoing trade war with the U.S. – a warning to America that its darling tech companies aren’t safe. Wall Street Journal

Pinduoduo pinched. Things have turned sour for social e-commerce app Pinduoduo after its celebrated debut on NASDAQ just last week. On August 1 Chinese regulators said they were investigating the firm for selling counterfeit goods, sending stocks into a slump that wiped out nearly $ 9 billion of market value. Six U.S. law firms are also investigating whether Pinduoduo issued misleading information in its IPO filing, threatening the possibility of bringing class action law suits against the company on behalf of its new investors. Caixin Global

Tightening the belt. Pakistan is likely to seek a $ 12 billion bailout from the IMF, a request that the U.S. has objected to, believing the money will be used to help pay off Chinese creditors. Pakistan has been a major target of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), receiving some $ 62 billion in loans and investments, despite international observers warning that it was diving into a debt trap. The risk attached to China’s BRI was highlighted earlier this year when Sri Lanka handed over a strategic port on a 99-year lease to China in order to pay back its debt. This week, Myanmar scaled back a China-funded port project over debt concerns. Financial Times

Innovation and Tech

A Starbucks on every app. Starbucks has partnered with Alibaba to expand its digital presence and provide delivery services. The delivery service, powered by Ele.me, will initially be available from 150 stores across Shanghai and Beijing but will be expanded to 2,000 stores by the end of the year. As for its digital mark, CEO Kevin Johnson said, “We’re going to integrate a Starbucks virtual store into all of the Alibaba Group properties,” essentially meaning that a Starbucks order feature will sit inside apps like AliPay, Hema or Taobao. CNBC

Apple takes bronze. Huawei, China’s number one phone brand, surpassed Apple in the second quarter to become the world’s second largest smartphone manufacturer by sales, settling in behind Samsung. Huawei shipped 54.2 million phones in the quarter, up 41% from last year, while Apple sold 41.3 million, up just 1%. It is the first time in seven years that Samsung and Apple have been separated from the top two positions. Huawei’s growth is especially impressive since the brand has been unable to get a grip on the U.S. market, where it is viewed as a potential security threat. The Guardian

Searching… Google is reportedly seeking to re-enter the Chinese search engine market with an Android app designed especially for China. Google withdrew its search engine from China in 2010 because of the state’s censorship practices, but anonymous sources have said its new search app will adhere to China’s standards and filter out websites and content backlisted by the authorities. The news has already been criticized by human rights activists. This isn’t the first time Google has been rumored to mull a return to China – where it still runs services besides its search engine. After the rumors emerged this week, state-owned China Securities Daily said “relevant departments” had refuted the claims. A further report claims Google is also developing a censored news aggregator app for China, where it would compete with local champion Toutiao. The Intercept

Banking on blockchain. The Agricultural Bank of China (ABC) has issued its first loan using blockchain technology, funding a farmer $ 300,000 to purchase tea and taking a plot of land as collateral. ABC, one of China’s Big Four banks, used a distributed ledger to record the transaction enlisting other banks as “node partners” to verify the exchange. Despite its heavy crackdown on cryptocurrencies and digital exchanges, China continues to promote research into blockchain’s alternative applications. Besides ABC, twelve publicly listed banks have utilized blockchain tech in the last year. Interestingly, this particular blockchain loan was issued by a branch in Guizhou, a province being developed as China’s hub for Big Data. Asia Times

Politics and Policy

Aussie rules. China will take part in upcoming naval exercises hosted by Australia, despite the strained relations between the two states. Over the past year, Canberra has frequently accused Beijing of attempting to intervene in its domestic politics and, as a result, passed a new counter espionage law. The U.S., which uninvited China from its own naval war games earlier this year due to disputes in the South China Sea, will also take part in Australia’s war games this month. Reuters

Censorship and corruption. Lu Wei, the former head of China’s online regulator, the Cyberspace Administration of China, was formally charged with corruption on Monday. Lu, once the overseer of China’s online censorship and thought to have been one of President Xi Jinping’s favored allies, has had a tremendous fall from grace, beginning in 2016 when he was suddenly removed from his position at the top of the CAC. His status was left on hold until November last year when he was officially placed under investigation, then in February he was expelled from the Communist Party and lambasted as “shameless” – a peculiarly strong denunciation. As Lu’s status has declined, former associates of Xi Jinping have seen their own positions rise. South China Morning Post

Amazon Prime members can shop exclusive new products through July 31

TwitterFacebook

For years, Black Friday had been the day for deals and shopping, basically serving as the unofficial kickoff to the Christmas season. Stores get packed with people looking to score the best deals on things like kitchen appliances, TVs, and clothes. And though Cyber Monday has emerged as a way to get around the madness of Black Friday, historically speaking the summer has been a deal dead zone.

All that changed in 2015 with the first Amazon Prime Day. It originally started as a way to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary with a day of big sales. These sales served as exclusives to Prime members and as a means to bring in more Prime sign ups. But what started as a one-day celebration of sales has become an annual tradition, serving as the Black Friday of the summer. Read more…

Please Don’t Ask a Plastic Surgeon to Make You Look Like a Snapchat Filter

First came the selfie, and most people pointed their phone cameras to their face. Then came the selfie stick, which left some tourists rolling their eyes at others who used them. Then came the selfie filter. And that has left some people–notably plastic surgeons–speaking out against the trend. Or rather, against the wish that people could look in real life the way that Snapchat can make them look in its app.

A trio of dermatologists at Boston University released Thursday a paper in the JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery Viewpoint titled, “Selfies – Living in the Era of Filtered Photographs.” The paper outlined a new twist on the condition known as body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) in which people have an excessive preoccupation with a perceived flaw in how it appears to others.

“A new phenomenon, dubbed ‘Snapchat dysmorphia,’ has patients seeking out cosmetic surgery to look like filtered versions of themselves instead, with fuller lips, bigger eyes, or a thinner nose,” the paper read. “This is an alarming trend because those filtered selfies often present an unattainable look and are blurring the line of reality and fantasy for these patients.”

Although the dysmorphia is named after Snapchat, the condition can also be inspired by the peer-pressure photo platform of Instagram as well as the facial-flaw editing apps like Facetune. Psychologists have worried about the role that Facetune can play, beyond removing blemishes or wrinkles, in creating unrealistic expectations in one’s appearance.

“It can be argued that these apps are making us lose touch with reality because we expect to look perfectly primped and filtered in real life as well,” the paper said. “Filtered selfies especially can have harmful effects on adolescents or those with BDD because these groups may more severely internalize this beauty standard.”

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimated that Americans spent $ 16 billion on cosmetic surgical fees in 2016.

Young Voters Want to See Younger Leaders, Poll Finds

Young people are disappointed in the current political system, and they want to see change. According to a poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and MTV, individuals between the age of 15 and 34 are pessimistic about American politics, and think younger politicians can do a better job.

About 7 in 10 young people say American politics are dysfunctional, and more than three fourths think leaders from their own generation would do a better job than current politicians, according to this study.

“These older Congress people, they don’t understand the internet and they don’t know what they’re talking about,” Greg Davis, a 29-year-old from Grandview, Ohio, told PBS NewsHour. He says he was frustrated watching the senate ask soft questions of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg at his privacy policy hearing last spring. “The questions that he was getting asked about security and privacy were asinine. We need leadership that actually understands tech.”

With this disappointment comes action, however. The poll found that 62% of young people believe their generation is motivated to make positive changes in the U.S., and 63% say that voting in the midterm elections will allow their generation to create real change in the government. That being said, less than a quarter say they feel they have enough information to make an informed decision in the 2018 midterms.

Still, they know they want to vote for someone different. Less than 1 in 5 express excitement about voting for any candidate who is a lifelong politician, white, older, or a celebrity. Instead, the younger generation is more focused on issues. Two-thirds express excitement about a candidate who cares about the issues that affect them.

“When it comes to the issues that young people care about, they cite health care, immigration, and the economy as the most important,” said Trevor Tompson, vice president for public affairs research at NORC, in a statement. “It remains to be seen how this excitement translates to voter turnout, but most young people believe that their generation is motivated to make positive change.”

4 Things to Know About Sexual Assault Allegations Against CBS’ Leslie Moonves

A New Yorker report on allegations of sexual assault, harassment, and retaliation against CBS CEO Leslie “Les” Moonves was so anticipated that it sent the media company’s stock down almost 10% hours before the story’s publication on Friday afternoon. CBS also said it would investigate the allegations before the story appeared.

And then it did. The New Yorker‘s Ronan Farrow provided accounts from several women, both identified by name and presented anonymously or with partial identification, who accused Moonves of unwanted physical contact that ranged from forcibly holding them down, putting a hand up a skirt, or thrusting his tongue down their throat.

In a statement to the New Yorker, Moonves said acknowledged making advances in some cases “decades ago,” but said he understood “‘no’ means ‘no’” and never retaliated. CBS said the company has never received any claims of misconduct against the CEO during his 24 years at the company, and has paid out no settlements. Still, earlier Friday, CBS released a statement that its independent directors were committed to investigating claims of personal misconduct. Multiple past and present CBS executives are mentioned in the article.

Five key takeaways from the lengthy New Yorker story:

1.) Moonves is alleged to have arranged solo meetings at which he made advances or assaults, a pattern similar to that reported of Hollywood mega-producer Harvey Weinstein. Writer and actress Illeana Douglas, writer Janet Jones, producer Christine Peters, and an actress who appeared on a CBS show as a police officer and declined to be identified further said Moonves made unwanted contact or advances during such meetings. Dinah Kirgo, a writer, said she turned down a private dinner with Moonves. (CBS told Farrow that Moonves acknowledged trying to kiss Douglas, but denied any more aggressive behavior, and that he didn’t touch or make inappropriate contact with the police-officer actress or Peters. CBS said he didn’t recall interacting with Jones or Kirgo.)

2.) Following Moonves’ alleged assault, Douglas had her role cut from a show in production and an exclusive appearance deal canceled with 80% of the payment not made. Douglas’s attorney negotiated for part of the payment and a contact to appear in a new miniseries. CBS denied the payment or new contract were settlements. Other women in the New Yorker article described retaliation after their alleged negative interactions with Moonves, including the loss of career opportunities and the spread of rumors that they were difficult to deal with.

3.) Farrow described an environment at CBS that allowed a culture of sexual misconduct and harassment to fester, citing numerous incidents, including those recited in a lawsuit in 2027 by a longtime CBS employee, Erin Gee, who said she was demoted after a boss told her “to have sex with a coworker with whom she was having difficulties in order to ‘break the ice.’” (Her attorney declined to comment and CBS said the matter was settled.)

4.) A Washington Post article early this year providing extensive reporting on the allegations about Charlie Rose’s purported sexual misconduct omitted mention of Jeff Faber, the executive producer of 60 Minutes, about whom Farrow details a number of anecdotes about his unwanted physical contact with employees and how he allegedly protected and promoted other men accused of a variety of behavior. Fager allegedly pressured the Post. The Post declined to comment on the specifics, stating: “Nothing that met our longstanding standards for publication was left out.” (Post contributing writer Irin Carmon, one of the two authors of the story, said while accepting an award at an event in June and at which Fager was in the audience: “The system is still powerful men getting stories killed that I believe will someday see the light of day.” She added on Twitter: “There will be more to say, and I will when I can.”)

GOP House Members Move To Impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein

Conservative members of the U.S House of Representatives introduced articles of impeachment on Wednesday against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Rosenstein oversees special counsel Robert Mueller as he investigates allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The representatives argue that the Department of Justice has failed to provide documents and other disclosures demanded by the House.

The articles build on some members’ stance that the basis for a special-court warrant to track Carter Page, a onetime Trump campaign advisor, was illegitimate, despite the recent disclosure of a declassified version of the application to the FISA court. They say that Rosenstein has a conflict of interest by having both been involved in that application and overseeing Mueller’s efforts. Further, they claim that the DOJ has withheld documents and us ignoring Congressional subpoenas.

The move will likely never reach a vote, despite its championing by Reps. Mark Meadow, Jim Jordan, and nine others from the so-called Freedom Caucus–all strong allies of President Donald Trump. There’s little interest from other conservatives. Neither the chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Bob Goodlatte, nor Trey Gowdy, head of the House Oversight Committee, signed on to the impeachment effort. Nor did House Speaker Paul Ryan.

A broader swath of Republicans have criticized Rosenstein’s appointment of the special counsel from nearly the moment it occurred. As Mueller has issued subpoenas and indictments, and secured guilty pleas and convictions, the chorus has become more rousing. Some GOP members, however, want to see the process through to its completion, only more rapidly than it appears to be progressing.

DOJ officials told The Hill that they are well underway in delivering documents the House has requested, despite the unprecedented scale of those requests. The DOJ says it has fulfilled or is close to fulfilling three outstanding subpoenas.

The House group didn’t introduce the measure as “privileged resolution,” which would force a vote within a few days. The House adjourns for a month starting Thursday, and invoking that method would potentially lead to the measure expiring before members return.

No executive branch employee or appointee has faced impeachment since U.S. Secretary of War William W. Belknap in 1876. (He was acquitted.) The last president facing impeachment, Bill Clinton, was also acquitted. Were the articles of impeachment to pass with a majority in the House, the Senate would have to vote with a two-thirds majority to convict after a House-conducted trial.

For the uninitiated, augmented reality (AR) is a technology that overlays digital images onto real world objects. For example, when people play Pokemon Go on their smartphone, the technology that visually superimposes Pokemon on their street corner is considered AR.

Trump Threatens to Revoke Security Clearances of Critics from Past Administrations

U.S. president Donald Trump may strip several former administration officials of their security clearances, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday. That threat may prove a paper tiger: two of the six cited relinquished them upon leaving their positions at the FBI, and at least one other said he doesn’t require it.

Sanders said six former officials had “politicized” and “monetized their public service,” pointing to statements made following Trump’s heavily criticized private meeting and public appearance with Russian president Vladimir Putin in Helsinki last week. Critique and even condemnation arose across the American political spectrum, forcing Trump to walk back, deny, and reverse some of his statements, only to reverse some of them once again.

The administration said it is evaluating clearances for former CIA director John Brennan, former FBI director James Comey, his former deputy Andrew McCabe, and former director of national intelligence director James Clapper, Jr., as well as Barack Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice; Michael Hayden, who headed up the CIA and the National Security Agency while George W. Bush was president.

Such clearances have value, allowing former officials to work on projects in private industry that require security vetting, as well as provide advice and consulting. Before the Trump administration, previous officials routinely provided pro bono input to current occupants when asked. According to several reports, it’s rare for clearances for White House staff to be withdrawn. Meanwhile, Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, reportedly lacks the highest security clearance, even after months of delay in turning his temporary clearance into a permanent one.

Hayden tweeted that “I don’t go back for classified briefings. Won’t have any effect on what I say or write.” Clapper spoke on CNN after Sanders’s statement, and said, “I think this is just a very, very petty thing to do. And that’s about all I’ll say about it.” He noted it was a president’s prerogative, but that it’s “a terrible precedent, and it’s a really sad commentary, and it’s an abuse of the system.”

Former FBI officials Comey and McCabe, however, didn’t retain security clearances, both noting it was standard policy to give them up when departing the agency. Benjamin Wittes, editor-in-chief of the Lawfare blog and a friend of Comey, posted on Twitter that Comey confirmed he had his clearance revoked per normal practice. McCabe’s spokesperson, Melissa Schwartz, said on Twitter, “Andrew McCabe’s security clearance was deactivated when he was terminated.”

It’s unclear what triggered Trump to have his press secretary deliver these remarks, but earlier in the day, Sen. Rand Paul tweeted that he told the president on Monday, “John Brennan and others partisans should have their security clearances revoked.”

Democratic Sen. Adam Schiff said on Twitter, “Politicizing security clearances to retaliate against former national security officials who criticize the President would set a terrible new precedent.”
