It's Friday after Election Day... and we STILL do not know who is President Elect!!!
I'm wondering if SCOTUS will end up deciding this election like they did with Bush v. Gore?
7.0 magnitude earthquake in the Aegean Sea causes tsunami on Greek island of Samos. October 30th 2020By admin
A powerful earthquake has struck off Turkey's Aegean coast, north of the Greek island of Samos, officials said. The tremor of up to 7.0 magnitude struck off the coast of Turkey's Izmir province, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said, and was felt as far away as Athens and Istanbul.
In Samos, the island closer to the epicentre of the earthquake, a church and some buildings have collapsed, the sea has risen and the roads are flooded
Sea pulled back, that's a sign before tsunami/flooding
Building collapse 10 minutes after the eq
Samos cathedral partially collapsed

He definitely lays a good solid prediction out there....
Although I wonder with the amount of money printing and the buying up of broad ETF's... including REITS.... will his secondary prediction be the actual one.... where housing prices don't go down... the dollar amount actually goes up due to inflation. Notice the comment he makes about the value going down though.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- A powerful earthquake off Alaska’s southern coast shook sparsely populated coastal communities late Tuesday and prompted some residents to briefly flee to higher ground because of tsunami fears.
There were no immediate reports of damage in the Alaska Peninsula and the tsunami warning was canceled after the magnitude 7.8 quake offshore created a wave of a less than a foot (30 centimeters).
The earthquake struck Tuesday at 10:12 p.m. local time and was centered in waters 65 miles (105 kilometers) south-southeast of the tiny community of Perryville, at a depth of 17 miles (28 km), according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
At least two people have died after a powerful earthquake shook central and southern Mexico, swaying buildings and sending thousands of people into the streets on Tuesday.
The 7.4 magnitude earthquake struck at 10:29 a.m. local time (5:29 pm CEST) on Tuesday, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS).
The USGS estimated that two million people felt strong or moderate shaking and another 49 million felt weak or light shaking.
Seismic alarms sounded in the morning, giving enough warning for residents to exit buildings.

Sarah Howe, who is blind and uses a wheelchair, is searching for a new apartment after her landlord gave her notice to vacateWill James / KNKX Residents of the Tiki Apartments in Tacoma say they know their complex is run down.
But they say it's served as a refuge for renters who struggle to find apartments elsewhere, including people with disabilities, fixed incomes, or criminal records.
Now that a new landlord is displacing them, they're thrust into a much more intense housing market. A new owner from Seattle is renovating the complex and notified tenants last month that they would have to leave.
The episode highlights the extent to which the Puget Sound region's housing affordability problems have taken root in Tacoma, once considered a bargain for housing within reach of people with disabilities.
Tacoma's average rent swelled by 8 percent to $1,218 over the past year, according to the apartment search company RENTCafé.
"It's like living in Hell," said Sarah Howe, who is blind and uses a wheelchair due to a rare genetic disorder called Norrie disease.
Howe, 42, has lived in the complex three years and has until the end of June to move out. Initially, she had less than a month, but a public outcry led by tenants like Howe, and a last-minute deal engineered by Tacoma City Council members, extended the landlord's deadline.
Howe estimates she's made 40 to 50 phone calls to inquire about apartments, none of which have panned out.
"It's been a nightmare," she said. "I go to sleep and hope that I wake up and I get to start all over. But I wake up and it's the same thing: still looking for a place to live."
Her disabilities limit her choices. She needs an apartment that's wheelchair accessible and close to transit lines.
But a major obstacle is her income. Howe gets $790 a month total in federal and state assistance. Her rent at the Tiki Apartments currently takes up most of that, leaving her with $220 a month for bills and other expenses.
Again and again, she's been told nothing is available within that kind of budget.
"I want to cry, but I just hang up and then I cry a little bit," she said. "And then I get over it and make another phone call."
Tacoma City Council members allocated $10,000 earlier this month to pay for caseworkers to help relocate the tenants. So far, about half have found new homes.
All around Howe's unit, workers have already begun renovating apartments for new tenants.
"My biggest fear is being the last one here," she said. "But then even if I'm the last one here, it's a statement that there's just not that much accessibility out there."
When she went outside to pull a prank on one of her neighbors last weekend — she planned to put a sleep shade over her eyes and say, "I can't see, I'm blind!" — she couldn't find anyone.
"There was nobody here to pull a prank on, nobody here to mess with," she said. "These are my friends, these are my community, these are the family that I chose. These are the people that looked out for me."
