The Virtual Doctor Will See You Now!

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA CMP™

[Publisher-in-Chief]

Recently, I was invited to speak at a regional convention. No surprise there as I have been doing so – around the world – for more than twenty years – webcasts included. And, I was asked to submit the usual paraphernalia; a formal CV, audio-visual needs, travel arrangements and times, PPE, and a personal photo which were all dutifully supplied.

Then, I was asked to supply something that flabbergasted me; I became slack-jawed, actually.

DEM’s Avatar 

Imagine my surprise when I was asked for an avatar; not just a digital photograph. So – having none – I had one made and now submit it for your review.

Assessment

So, how do I virtually look – better or worse – glasses or contact lens? It seems as though some folks are more interested in the virtual me; than the real me. Go figure!

HOME VALUES: Appraised vs. Assessed vs. Fair Market Value

KNOW THE THE DIFFERENCE

By Staff Reporters

***

As doctors, nurses and medical professionals try to get an idea of what their home is worth, please go into the process with the knowledge that the concept of “value” can carry a different definition depending on who’s assigning it.

***

Home Value Estimator | What Is Your House Worth?

For example:

  • Appraised value – The appraised value of your home is the number assigned to it by a professional appraiser. This value is especially important when a home buyer is getting a mortgage. The lender will typically require a professional appraisal to verify that the borrower hasn’t agreed to an unrealistic valuation.
  • Assessed value – The assessed value of your home is the figure assigned to it by the county where it’s located for property tax purposes. While an appraisal involves someone inspecting the interior and exterior of your home, assessments are often conducted in a mass approach by using pricing trends.
  • Fair market value – The fair market value of your home doesn’t involve a professional. Instead, it involves other people just like you who might be willing to pay more because they love a home or a certain neighborhood. So, for example, an appraised value might be $300,000, but a recent surge in buying activity and limited supply might motivate a buyer to go above that price. On the flip side, keep in mind that those buyers might be willing to pay less than what you believe it’s worth, too.

UPDATE: Crypto Advertisements on Super Bowl Sunday 2022

The Crypto Bowl and the Dot Com Bowl?

By Staff Reporters

***

CRYPTO CURRENCY: Tonight, about 117 million people will watch celebrities pitch cryptocurrency on the Super Bowl. In what’s being dubbed the “Crypto Bowl,” a batch of crypto exchanges including FTX, Coinbase, and Crypto.com, will air Super Bowl commercials at a cost of up to $7 million per 30-second spot. The game is even being held at a stadium named after SoFi, a company that offers crypto trading.\

BEWARE: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/meet-the-crocodile-of-wall-street-rapper-accused-of-laundering-billions-of-dollars-in-crypto/ar-AATNmv6?li=BBnb7Kz

This isn’t the first time startups from an emerging industry have used the Super Bowl to introduce themselves to a mass audience. Does anyone remember the 2000 Super Bowl between the Rams and the Titans? That was known as the “Dot-Com Bowl.” Startups that were part of the dot-com wave of the early internet bought nearly 20% of the total ad slots in what is considered the peak of that tech bubble.

CITE: https://www.r2library.com/Resource/Title/082610254

Well, that bubble burst. In fact, according to journalist Neal Freyman, of the 14 dot-com companies that purchased Super Bowl ads that year, four are still active, five were acquired, and five (including Pets.com, OnMoney.com, and Epidemic.com) are either defunct or their status is unclear.
