James Hibberd Notes How ‘Fargo’s’ Production Delay May Have Increased Its Fourth Season’s Cultural Relevance

EW Editor-at-Large, James Hibberd, shares why the new season of ‘Fargo’ might resonate with viewers more right now, and discusses Chris Rock’s performance, and why this season feels different than previous ones.

No one’s ever quite sure what anyone else is up to in Fargo, but that begins to change in “The Pretend War,” which finds the show’s contentious factions all gaining a greater understanding of the motives and machinations of their rivals, neighbors, and significant others. Except, that is, when it comes to the mysterious specter who appears to be haunting the Smutny clan.

American Homes 4 Rent Has Nothing To Offer (NYSE:AMH)

Source: Investor presentation

Towards the end of June, I penned a piece on residential rental REIT American Homes 4 Rent (AMH) stating I thought the stock was a sell. Shares are up marginally since then, so my bearishness seems to have been overdone given the way the stock has performed. However, that is a long way from making the stock a buy, and below, I’ll detail why I still think AMH is a waste of your time and investing dollars.

Shares have been resilient since June, as I said, and as you can see above. We aren’t talking about blockbuster gains here – a dollar or two per share – but to its credit, AMH is holding up. What’s interesting is that its peer group has performed absolutely horrendously this year, underperforming the S&P 500 by about 30% since the March bottom. AMH has vastly outperformed its peer group, however,

Raucous presidential debate has no lasting impact as North American markets end month

TORONTO – A raucous U.S. presidential debate had little lasting impact on stock markets Wednesday as they ended their worst month since March’s sizable correction.

The early futures in both Canada and the U.S. decreased significantly after Tuesday’s chaotic debate between U.S. President Donald Trump and former vice-president Joe Biden.

But with nothing new presented on policy, investors latched onto hopeful news from Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin about a possible fiscal stimulus deal.

“Once the market sort of digested that early in the morning, we saw a sharp reversal in particular in the U.S. and we saw the TSX go into positive territory as well,” said Giles Marshall, portfolio manager at Fiduciary Trust Canada.

“Mnuchin offered some optimism pretty much at the last minute in terms of being able to get a deal done before the election takes place.”

Markets lost some of the gains in afternoon trading.

Trump likely paid less in federal income tax than average middle class American

“His income tax burden is certainly much lower than the average taxpayer,” said Brian Galle, a law professor and tax expert at Georgetown Law. “He’s likely paying less than the shoe-shine guy who works in the foyer of the Trump Tower.”

The Times’ disclosure of Trump’s shockingly low federal income payments prompted an outpouring of criticism of what appeared to be his unusually aggressive attempts to evade obligations to the Internal Revenue Service. The Times’ report reveals that Trump also appears to have stretched the boundaries of deductions that allow firms to lower their federal tax burdens on losses and expenses, for instance by paying his daughter Ivanka Trump consulting fees that the firm later claimed as a tax write-off.

Alan Garten, a lawyer for the Trump Organization, said the story was filled with inaccuracies and told The Washington Post in a statement: “Over the past decade the President has

How Covid has impacted Asian American multigenerational homes

Mother and daughter, then, are the designated emissaries to the outside world. Gao, 23, headed to Ohio in January for a new job as a data analyst, and had big plans to travel internationally with friends on her “new adult income.” But after the coronavirus tightened its grip on the U.S., she moved back home to live with her mother and octogenarian grandmother in the Atlanta suburbs.

“I just figured it would be a lot easier to be able to be back home with a support system,” Gao said. “Being isolated was not an ideal situation.”

Her 53-year-old mother, who was born and raised in China, received unemployment after being furloughed in March. That cushioned the blow, but she still worried:

Working towards independent energy supply, New homes in American Fork, Bringing Hope to the Table

Daimler partners, working towards independent power

Daimler AG announced it is utilizing its automotive fuel cell systems in stationary power systems to demonstrate a sustainable and independent energy supply for data centers, and to accelerate the transition to renewable energy generation and supply.

The company has experience with hydrogen-powered electric vehicles over several vehicle generations and millions of tests around the world, and recently presented the next step with pre-production models of the Mercedes-Benz GLC F Cell. Convinced of the potential of fuel cell technology and hydrogen as an energy storage medium in the context of the overall energy system, the company is extending its development activities into non-transportation industries. Joining forces with industry leaders Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Power Innovations, Daimler will develop prototype systems starting this year for back-up and continuous power solutions for data centers and other stationary applications using automotive hydrogen fuel cell systems.

the shocking film on the privatization of American public lands

Towards the middle of the new film Public Trust, about the continued push by zealous conservatives to privatize ownership of the United States’ federally-managed public lands, the stakes are laid bare: “If you don’t get engaged, you lose,” says Land Tawney, president and CEO of the nonprofit Backcountry Hunters and Anglers. “When you get complacent, things are done to you.”

Tawney is speaking of the 640m acres that are owned by the country’s citizenry. Few things in politics are as quintessentially American as the country’s vast system of public lands. No other nation on earth has this much property that belongs to its people and is intended to be management by the government for the benefit and uplift of all. Yet selling off those lands is still listed as a goal in the Republican party platform, and
