Hello everyone! My name is Clay, and I run Terminally Nerdy! What is Terminally Nerdy? Its a Website, its a youtube channel, its a a twitch channel, its a twitter, and now its a Podcast on top of everything else. This podcast came about because of a suggestion from a twitter follower, where I could use my long commute to and from work (around an hour and a half one way!) to just talk about the stuff that interests me. What has been created is this: a raw and mostly unedited stream of conciou ...
 
'Terminal Value' is a Finance term that is used to represent the present value of all future cash flows, with the assumption of perpetual, stable growth. However, the future is not as predictable as people like to think. We also have seen that all information we receive is presented with an agenda.

This has created a high degree of anxiety and pessim ...

The Port Authority has released plans for a new Midtown bus terminal. The new facility will be built in the exact same spot as the current structure on 42nd Street.

In March 2020 we were reminded that the Oil and Gas industry can be booming one moment and crashing the next. Companies’ operations staffs took a huge hit last year, where over 100,000 oil, gas and petrochemical workers were laid off. This created additional challenges for operators in maintaining process visibility and performing necessary operati…
 
During 2020 there was quite a bit of attention on Law Enforcement and Equity.

The death of a Black doctor from COVID-19 is shining new light on racism in medical care and how the virus is devastating Black communities.

Last month, Dr. Susan Moore posted a now-viral video o…

The polls open for the first day of early voting in a special election in Queens Saturday. It's a race to fill a seat in eastern Queens, left vacant when City Council member Rory Lancman resigned last year to join the Cuomo administration.

PODCAST REWIND Stories of outrageous hoaxes perpetrated upon New Yorkers in the early 19th century.

But an even greater engineering challenge was necessary to prevent the entire…
 
Immigrants from Liberia lost their work authorization this month even though they still had temporary status. A large number of them live on Staten Island.

Since entering the mayor’s race last week, Andrew Yang, the former tech entrepreneur who ran for president, has drawn a lot of attention as a political outsider who could upend a wide open election. He’s also seeking to make history—New York City has never elected an Asian American to its top office. The election could prove to be a historic moment…
 
Immigration enforcement looks a whole lot different now that President Biden has been inaugurated, with a 100-day pause on deportations and a narrowing of targets for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. But Biden says he’s just getting started -- a bill, sponsored by Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, would give about 11 million undocumented immigra…
 
The Biden administration has pledged to distribute 100 million vaccine doses in 100 days. That sounds like a lot — and it is a lot — but it doesn't represent much of an acceleration over the pace of distribution to date, which has seen 31 million doses reach vaccination hubs in the last 36 days since the national campaign began. More importantly, i…
 
Coronavirus variants, like those found in the United Kingdom and South Africa, are ushering in a new stage of the pandemic, even as health officials around the world are racing to get people inoculated.

A New York State judge has ordered the Corrections Department to vaccinate a 65-year-old incarcerated man with chronic lung disease for COVID-19.

In 2019, the Staten Island District Attorney’s Office quietly purchased software from Clearview AI, a controversial facial recognition company.

When President Trump was inaugurated four years ago, a number of local women were inspired to run for office, as Democrats.
