KTBC Fox 7 News Austin Showing Dash Cam

It has been four days since my citation and Fox 7 News decided to interview me about the dash cam videos today.  It was one week ago since my first interview with Rudy Koski at Fox at City Hall,  So he was happy to review what had happen over the weekend.  Rudy first called and asked if I felt if I was targeted, but I said no not personally targeted, but you never know...

Here is the story that aired during the 5PM & 9PM News

Here is the 10PM version with a different edit and sound bite.

And here is the entire interview from my dash cam.  Speed up for time purposes.  You really cant hear anything as the doors are closed.

New Action Camera Review

I recent purchased this new Action Camera SJ4000.  It was $82 on Amazon and competes with the GoPro Hero camera that sells for $400.  I have to say Im very impressed.  The picture can record up to 1080P and has the same wide angle lens as the GoPro.  It even includes a LCD display to help align the camera.  The GoPro has not display, so you have no idea how it will look until you download the videos.

Here is a link to a great review and report of issues.

Here are some videos that I have taken already.  This one is just around my subdivision.

Here is a slowed down video where I caught a lighting strike.

Risk Free Rate Of The VIX

Talking about the impact of Interest Rates and the value of the VIX calculation.  Below is the acutal formula for calculating the VIX.  Notice how the VIX is the sum of many variables and a multiple of R, which is the Risk-free interest rate.  So as interest rates go down, the VIX will go down.  As interest rates go up the VIX will go up.  Everything else is based on option pricing.
