A few months ago we went to visit the incredible abandoned city called Slab City. It used to be a military base but hundreds of squatters came and made it their home. We went with our friend Justin Escalona and truly had a fascinating experience. We thought the place would be hostile and dangerous when in fact it was inviting and beautiful (in it's own way). Shout-outs to all the description readers out there you know we love you :)

And also where y’all turned the water on in the beginning and said “this hasn’t been used in years” that was at a camp ground where they have running water and solar powered hot showers on the salton sea. Y’all are tripping portraying a false image of the surrounding places and the destination itself. Just like vice you exploit an area for views to ultimately capitalize or yourself.
I’ve been to slab city and spoken with some of the same folks y’all did. You associated the city with such a negative connotation. It’s well known that it is a nice area with kind people. That’s why there is a mountain that says god is love. Drifters come from fat and wide still and anyone can just come and spend a few days there or just start living there. If you wanted to make a difference with the video you could have posted their PayPal for donations.
Also if YES theory says YES to everything they should create a channel called NO theory... which says NO to everything... just an experiment... let's see where it leads to. WHAT IF WE SAID NO TO EVERYTHING? I'm sure it would be an equally satisfying experiment. Just less damaging. :P
Challenging the system is a strange satisfaction that will haunt mankind for the rest of humanity. It doesn't matter who is in power. There will always be a group to challenge that idea. All of life, all of existence is a wavelength. Society is no exception. There will be up and downs. It's natural. Everything will be challenged. Even the most perfect system. And it's beautiful.
Although foreigners may now invest in A-shares, there is a monthly 20 percent limit on repatriation of funds to foreign countries.
Performance of A-shares.
Since its inception in 1990, including a major reform in 2002, the index has seen great fluctuations. Overall, however, it has grown along with the Chinese economy. The years 2015 to 2016 were a particularly difficult period, with a 52-week performance of -21.55 percent as of July 20, 2016.
As China grows from an emerging market to an advanced economy, there is substantial demand for Chinese equity. Stock exchange regulators continue efforts to make A-shares more broadly available to foreign investors and have them recognized by the global investing community.
In June 2017, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index announced a long-awaited decision it would add stocks to its index. According to CNBC, MSCI will add 222 China A Large Cap stocks to its benchmark emerging markets index gradually beginning in 2018. The MSCI website reveals the stocks it will list include the Bank of China, China Merchants Bank, Guotai Junan, Ping An Insurance, according to a document on Tsingtao Brewery, SAIC Motor, Suning Commerce and Spring Airlines.
Current Dividend Preference.
Participating Preferred Stock.
Convertible Preferred Stock.
Cumulative preferred stock includes a provision that requires the company to pay preferred shareholders all dividends, including those that were omitted in the past, before the common shareholders are able to receive their dividend payments.
Non-cumulative preferred stock does not issue any omitted or unpaid dividends. If the company chooses not to pay dividends in any given year, the shareholders of the non-cumulative preferred stock have no right or power to claim such forgone dividends at any time in the future.
Participating preferred stock provides its shareholders with the right to be paid dividends in an amount equal to the generally specified rate of preferred dividends, plus an additional dividend based on a predetermined condition. This additional dividend is typically designed to be paid out only if the amount of dividends received by common shareholders is greater than a predetermined per-share amount. If the company is liquidated, participating preferred shareholders may also have the right to be paid back the purchasing price of the stock as well as a pro-rata share of remaining proceeds received by common shareholders.
