Trevor Noah Sells Modern Bel Air Mansion

Angelena Iglesia

Given that Trevor Noah has been hosting the Daily Show from his $10.2 million midtown Manhattan penthouse these past few months, it makes sense that he might no longer need to hold on to his less-frequented Bel Air mansion. According to Variety, the South African comedian recently sold off the ultramodern behemoth for $21.7 million, after paying $20.5 million for it in early 2019.

The property sits on 1.3 acres and boasts five bedrooms and eight bathrooms spread across 10,044 square feet. The main suite alone occupies much of the second floor and measures 2,200 square feet, with two marble bathrooms, two custom-built walk-in closets, and a private patio/lounge. The house is extremely boxy in design, with large swaths of glass windows and sliders balancing out its concrete exteriors. A modern, minimalist fireplace separates the living room from a dedicated dining room, but otherwise, most of the common living

Raymond James Predicts Over 100% Rally for These 3 Stocks

After a volatile September, the roller coaster hasn’t ended in October. We had a pleasant surprise for investors, when S&P 500 climbed back above 3,400 to start the month. However, markets didn’t like President Trump’s COVID diagnosis, and the resulting drop. The President is out of the hospital, but now the White House and Congressional Democrats are unable to reach agreement on an economic stimulus package. The combination of good news and bad news makes the markets an intriguing mix of risk and reward. Weighing in on current market conditions, Raymond James strategist Tavis C. McCourt noted: “Although there is a lot of noise in the market, fiscal relief likely trumps other variables as a $1.5+ trillion fiscal relief package would likely secure an improving earnings trend through next summer (vaccine), would limit the need for increased state/local taxes,

Vinay Gupta: Ecological Sanity Is Compatible With Human Freedom

In the early days, Bitcoin proposed a simple model of how the world could be transformed: The free market was going to produce inflation-proof money with strong privacy features, which could be used to avoid taxes. Over time, people would sell their dollars, replace them with cryptocurrency and the State would wither away to be replaced with an anarchic paradise.

Vinay Gupta is CEO of Mattereum, an Ethereum-based physical asset management platform. He coordinated the Ethereum launch process and first worked in cryptocurrencies in the 1990s. This essay is part of CoinDesk’s “Internet 2030” series exploring the ongoing digital revolution.
