Great Chart from Our Friends at Visual Capitalist – Wind Electricity Generation By State … Care to Guess Which State Produces the Most? Surprised

With an annual pilgrimage to the cooler climate, north west and a higher altitude during the month of August … The first family member to see the gigantic Windmills always takes note as sort of a land mark in getting closer….

While we have collectively noticed more of said Windmills, and seeing them sooner… no idea of the country dominance of our southern state in Wind Generation Electricity…

NFT’s (Non-Fungible Tokens) … Explained … Ecosystems

We are certainly not recommending these as an investment, but we are watching the development of NFT’s and as such, thought it worth giving you a little background on them… of course a great chart from our friends at Visual Capitalist set us on our way….

NFT Definition

This from Investopedia

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

  • NFTs are unique cryptographic tokens that exist on a blockchain and cannot be replicated.
  • NFTs can be used to represent real-world items like artwork and real-estate.
  • “Tokeninzing” these real-world tangible assets allows them to be bought, sold, and traded more efficiently while reducing the probability of fraud.
  • NFTs can also be used to represent peoples identities, property rights, and more.

The Great Bottle Neck – Port of Los Angeles – Visual Capitalist

No doubt, in some form or fashion you have experienced some delay in a product.

Maybe a home furnishing?

Maybe a part or tool?

Maybe a vehicle?

Maybe clothing?

This great chart and comments from our friends here at Visual Capitalist helps explain:

Stuck at Sea

As of November 2, 2021, the Port of Los Angeles reported that it had 93 vessels waiting in queue. Altogether, these ships have a maximum carrying capacity of roughly 540,000 containers (commonly measured in twenty-foot equivalent units or TEUs).

On the other side of the equation, the port processed 468,059 import containers in September (the most recent data at the time of writing). Because the port does not operate on Sundays, we can conclude that the port can load roughly 18,000 containers each day.

That capacity seems unlikely to reduce the congestion. Over a two-week timeframe in September, 407,695 containers arrived at the Port of Los Angeles, which averages to around 29,000 containers arriving each day.

Have a Great “Delayed Supply Explanation” Day!

Work Remote Trends from Our Friends at Visual Capitalist versus Kastle Back to Work Index Update …

Long time followers (maybe even short time) know we really enjoy graphics, and especially when we can compare several sources on the same subject…

Luckily another new fantastic chart from our friends at Visual Capitalist that would compare well with a long time regular, Kastle Back to Work Index update hit our email box last week….

Here we go:

Industries Embracing Remote

As an interesting side note, this weekend while working on this post and listening to a fantastic 80 minute podcast from Satya Nadella the CEO of Microsoft, he mentioned that the entire workforce of Microsoft will be offered a staggered three day in the office work week moving forward. There were certain creative groups within the company that were just unable to function well remotely…. which makes sense…

From the Visual Capitalist article- interesting stat

Broadly speaking, 12% of all Canadian paid job postings on LinkedIn offered remote work in September 2021. Prior to the pandemic, that number sat at just 1.3%.

Kastle Back To Work Index

Kastle is a National Security Company among other things that has smartly used their resources to track office occupancy… well done guys, just terrific use of your resources for the betterment of all

Recall these hit our in box weekly…. note the immediate movement up post delta rollover… still a long ways to go, and per the above a population adjust future may never go back to 100% occupancy!

Can see the come back in the longer term trend in this chart!

Have a Great “Double Comparison of Remote Work” Day!
