http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0085Y3WBW/
Product Features

1,176-piece LEGO Education space and airport set
Includes elements for building a space shuttle, satellites, airplanes, helicopters, an airport, and more, for students to role-play exploring travel and different forms of transportation
Supports a group of five students, age four years and older


The lowest price according to CCC was back in October 2012 - $93.19. It has been hovering around $139.95 for awhile.

EDIT 8/26: price has dropped to $78.61! Yes, ships in 2-5 weeks but early holiday shopping!
Also - these Education sets are just plain boxes filled with LEGOs. There is an "idea" book, but this is ideally aimed for kids who just want to experiment with various creations. So if you want to build something specific and leave it up for display, this may not be the set with you.

Stressed out? Anxious? Overwhelmed? Good newsyoure not alone!

No one ever said life was going to be easy. Between financial struggles, marital issues, health scares, and the regular, run-of-the-mill problems of everyday life, its easy to feel weighed down and trapped by your circumstances. In times like these, its tempting to just throw in the towel and quit. Well, dont do it!

Perry Noble has stood at the edge of the abyss himself, and in Overwhelmed, he shares the keys to unlocking the chains of anxiety and despair once and for all. Building on the premise that when we shift our focus from our circumstances to Christ, everything changes, Perry walks readers through a life-altering plan for overcoming stress, worry, depression, and anxiety so we can be free to enjoy the abundant, joy-filled lives we were created for.

God knows were frustrated. He knows were tired. He knows were struggling. But He also knows how things are going to turn out. He is greater than anything you are going through . . . so dont give up on God. After all, Hes never given up on you.

Needing advice on starting a business.

g: 0 Posted By: timgodsil
Views: 137 Replies: 9 I've talked to quite a few people, and get mixed answers.

I am wanting to start a pawn shop. I figure I will need about 50k-80k in funding. 10k for renting a retail building for a few months, 10k for a computer, some shelving, etc, and the rest capital to loan money (pawn).

However, some people tell me that I won't get a loan without a college degree, and others tell me banks won't give you the time of day if you have student loans.

I would hate to go to college, get 40k in debt from loans, and have to work to get back to zero, all to find out I didn't need a degree for a loan.

Does education help loan funding, or is it purely credit?

Views: 247 Replies: 6 I searched the forum and there are only a few threads on this and they don't look like they were active until conclusion. So this thread will hopefully show the entire process through conclusion. However, we are at the beginning of the process and probably months if not years away from the end. Any helpful insights would be appreciated.

State - Georgia
Purpose - Road widening
Amount of land for right of way - 1000sqft +/-
Construction Easement - 6000sqft +/-

What they are wanting purchase from us:

Our SFR house (primary residence) backs up to a road they are widening from a 2 lane road to a four lane divided highway with bike lanes and sidewalks. It appears that the majority of new right of way is going across the street from us. The right of way they want to purchase from us is only a few feet wide and probably wouldn't have much impact on our quality of life. However, they also want a permanent easement that comes an additional 40' +/- closer to our house. They would clear the land on this easement and we would not be able to place any permanent structures (ie. fence) on this land. This easement would clear out an 8'-10' high earthen berm with a 6' high privacy fence on top and extensive mature landscaping. Additionally we have a nice new pool and spa in our back yard along with a pool house and storage building. The back yard was designed to be our relaxation area (has waterfall features on pool and spa, nice lighting, nice landscaping, etc.) and is fairly private. Removing the berm and landscaping will diminish the quality of life extensively (according to me).

Where we are in the process:

August 2014 - Appraiser met with us to explain what they were doing and approximately how much land they would need. Gave us a map and pointed to the approximate boundary lines (surveyors should stake the property "soon"). Appraiser took lots of pictures and was very helpful with explaining the process and what they would and would not pay for.

What they will pay for:

-ROW land
- Easement land
- Fencing
- Landscaping (plants, trees, and irrigation)
- Storage building (if any part of it it is in easement area)

What they might pay for:

- Diminished value because of the loss of the berm and landscaping

What they won't pay for:

- Not sure yet. Going to ask for everything under the sun.

Negotiation Strategies:

- Ask for concrete privacy wall/noise barrier like you see on interstates (appraiser said he had not seen them do this on this type of project)
- Ask for construction easement to be temporary
- Ask for diminished value from loss of berm/landscaping (appraiser said he would need to do a more in depth appraisal for this, he's going to try to get that appraisal approved)



If you have any experience with something like this, or if you have suggestions please chime in.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GL4IKUG/

SOLVING WORD SCRAMBLE PUZZLES IS ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO MAINTAIN THE BRAIN IN TOP OPERATING CONDITIONS. THE LETTERS IN 12,000 WORDS ARE SCRAMBLED IN ABC ORDER. SOLUTIONS ARE GIVEN FOR ALL PUZZLES. Overall Benefits of Solving Word Puzzles
Improved Effective IQ
The title indicates that these Scramble puzzles are designed To Improve Your IQ. Intelligence Quotient IQ is a scientific assessment of your intelligence. Your IQ is determined by measuring your problem solving abilities, memory, general knowledge, and spatial imagery. The average God-given IQ of an adult is 150. It cannot be increased by medical science, because of the microbiology of the brain. It can, however, be improved. The average effective (day-to-day) IQ is only 100-110, mostly due to neglect lack of brain exercises. Therefore, if you exercise your brain, you can increase your effective IQ. Word puzzles, such as Scramble, provide the necessary mental activity.
Mental Exercise
Word puzzles help expand vocabulary, strengthen word recall, and improve memory. You do not realize while you are working puzzles that you are using thinking skills. Your brain learns new skills and acquires knowledge throughout your life. Mastering puzzle-solving skills improves your thinking.
Scramble puzzles will improve your focus and attention. When you are working on a puzzle, you need an environment that is relatively free of distractions. Puzzle solving is a solitary activity. The concentrated attention you must give to the solution of a Scramble is an excellent skill to develop which can help you in many areas of your life.
Deduction is an important critical thinking skill. Scramble puzzles provide you with an opportunity to learn organizational skill as you apply different solution methods. Practicing the process of elimination seeking and finding possible answers, also requires deduction.
Scramble puzzles provide you with an activity that is not only fun, but also mentally challenging. Your brain needs regular playtime to form new patterns and complex neural networks naturally. Your mind requires nurturing just like your body. After all, exercise is not just about jumping jacks and free-weights. Both your body and your mind need stimulation and exercise. Puzzles are great for mind maintenance and mental stimulation.

One successful strategy is to look for the beginning letter of the word for which you are searching. Then look at the box immediately to the left and right, above and below, and in both diagonal directions for the remaining letters. At this point, you should see the complete word.
2) Work each row in one direction.

3) Work the list.
Some word search puzzle solvers simply work down the list, looking for each word. Of course, you want to go ahead and mark any other words you see.
Work in sections.
Whichever method of solution you choose, work your word search puzzle in sections. You dont want to repeatedly do the same area of your puzzle.
Take a break.
If you get stuck, stop and come back to the puzzle later.

Leonardo da Vinci Artworks!
Ultimate Quality Collection!
200 HD pictures!

Leonardo da Vici was born on 15 April 1452 in the town of Vinci, the illegitimate son of the notary Ser Piero da Vinci and a peasant woman called Caterina. His childhood spent in the Tuscan countryside inspired in him a life-long passion for the observation and depiction of nature.When he was seventeen, he moved to Florence, where his talent for drawing impressed the great master Verrocchio who took him on as a pupil.Leonardo da Vinci worked for such powerful patrons as Ludovico da Sforza, Duke of Milan; Cesare Borgia; Cardinal Giuliano de Medici, brother of Leon X; and for the French king Francois I at Amboise, where he died in 1519.

It has become fashionable to speak of 'Leonardo the artist' and 'Leonardo the scientist' as if he had been some schizophrenic genius torn between two disparate pursuits and therefore rarely, if ever, able to accomplish anything in either. But Leonardo's own contemporaries, though impatient of his volatility, master himself such a dichotomy would have been incomprehensible. To say that as 'a man of the Renaissance' he believed that a painter needed the aid of anatomy, perspective, optics and so forth is not a proper answer. In fact, these alleged 'scientific' studies of Renaissance artists were a fashion confined to a small circle. In any case, Michelangelo and Raphael to name only two outstanding examples - did not share these interests but were great artists nonetheless. Leonardo's inquiries were rooted in his personality, not in some tendency of the age, and many of his notes and drawings having nothing to do with the tasks awaiting painters of his time. They are not a vast store from which to draw raw materials for his art, nor was his art simply a finely distilled compound of observations and imagination.
In fact, many of Leonardo da Vinci's drawings are different from those of his contemporaries and those by artists from any other period. Of course, there are among them rapid sketches from life, portraits, quick notes for compositions, elaborate cartoons, drapery studies, designs for machines, buildings, drawings of plants and animals, anatomical and proportion studies. But it is their nature which is so often peculiar. The plans of buildings grow before our eyes like the cells of some organism, plants appear on the same sheet both in bud and in flower, trees are drawn schematically to demonstrate the principle of growth, there is a drawing of the peaceful Arno valley, and there are the cataclysmic visions of utter physical destruction of the world. The grotesque heads - to call them caricatures is a misnomer - are combinations and variations of human forms creating a morphological sequence of types. The anatomical drawings demonstrate not only the position of muscles and tendons or the bone structure, they also show the embryo in its mother's womb and a bare skull, - the beginning and end of life. All these drawings are concerned not just with the collection of visual data useful to the painter but with the processes of life, with growth and decay, whether in plants, beast, man, or the world at large. The same is true of Leonardo's designs for his various mechanical contrivances which are so often engines of construction or destruction.

Leonardo da Vinci's notes should be considered in the same context. It is perhaps a pity that we have got used to thinking of them as if they had been written in preparation for some comprehensive treatise on painting. But it should be remembered that the huge manuscript known as Trattato della Pittura is not a autograph. It was compiled in the sixteenth century, probably by Francesco Melzi, from no less then eighteen of the original notebooks. The result certainly is a labor of love, but nevertheless this gathering divided into eight chapters is too rigid, too much like a textbook to reveal Leonardo da Vinci's truly dynamic nature...




Ultimate Salvador Dali Collection: Modern Art from the Famous Creator
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A7YP70W

335 Salvador Dali Paintings !!!
Complete Works from 1925 to 1983!
Amazing Collection in High Quality!

Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dal i Domnech, 1st Marqus de Dal de Pubol (May 11, 1904 January 23, 1989), known as Salvador Dal (Catalan pronunciation: [səɫβəˈo əˈɫi]), was a prominent Spanish surrealist painter born in Figueres, Spain.

Dal was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters. His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in 1931. Dal's expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media.

Dal attributed his "love of everything that is gilded and excessive, my passion for luxury and my love of oriental clothes" to a self-styled "Arab lineage", claiming that his ancestors were descended from the Moors.

Dal was highly imaginative, and also enjoyed indulging in unusual and grandiose behavior. His eccentric manner and attention-grabbing public actions sometimes drew more attention than his artwork, to the dismay of those who held his work in high esteem, and to the irritation of his critics.

In 1931, Dal painted one of his most famous works, The Persistence of Memory, which introduced a surrealistic image of soft, melting pocket watches. The general interpretation of the work is that the soft watches are a rejection of the assumption that time is rigid or deterministic. This idea is supported by other images in the work, such as the wide expanding landscape, and other limp watches shown being devoured by ants.

900 Amazing Tribal Tattoo Designs 700 X 700!

Tattooing has been practiced for centuries in many cultures, particularly in Asia, and spread throughout the world.[citation needed] The Ainu, an indigenous people of Japan, traditionally had facial tattoos. Today, one can find Atayal of Taiwan, Berbers of Tamazgha (North Africa), Hausa people of Northern Nigeria, Kurdish people in East-Turkey, and Māori of New Zealand with facial tattoos.

Tattooing was widespread among Polynesians and among certain tribal groups in Africa, Borneo, Cambodia, Europe, Japan, the Mentawai Islands, MesoAmerica, New Zealand, North America and South America, the Philippines, and Taiwan. Indeed, the island of Great Britain takes its name from tattooing; Britons translates as "people of the designs", and Picts, the peoples who originally inhabited the northern part of Britain, literally means "the painted people". Despite some taboos surrounding tattooing, the practice continues to be popular in many parts of the world.

Tattooing has been a Eurasian practice at least since Neolithic times. tzi the Iceman, dating from the fourth to fifth millennium BC, was found in the tz valley in the Alps and had some 57 carbon tattoos consisting of simple dots and lines on his lower spine, behind his left knee, and on his right ankle. These tattoos were thought to be a form of healing because of their placement, which resembles acupuncture. Other mummies bearing tattoos and dating from the end of the second millennium BC have been discovered, such as the Mummy of Amunet from ancient Egypt and the mummies at Pazyryk on the Ukok Plateau.

Pre-Christian Germanic, Celtic and other central and northern European tribes were often heavily tattooed, according to surviving accounts. The Picts were famously tattooed (or scarified) with elaborate, war-inspired black or dark blue woad (or possibly copper for the blue tone) designs. Julius Caesar described these tattoos in Book V of his Gallic Wars (54 BC).

Various other cultures have had their own tattoo traditions, ranging from rubbing cuts and other wounds with ashes, to hand-pricking the skin to insert dyes.

Modern tattooing in the Western world has its origins in sixteenth through eighteenth century maritime expeditions, which promoted contact between explorers and the amerindian tribes and Polynesians they encountered. The Polynesian practice, especially, became popular among European sailors, who took the Samoan word tatau to describe the actual tattoo. As sailors traveled abroad and returned home with tattoos inscribed on their bodies, tattoos began to appear in mainstream European, and eventually North American, figurations, as well.

As many tattoos were stimulated by Polynesian and Japanese examples, amateur tattoo artists were in great demand in port cities all over the world, especially by European and American sailors. The first documented professional tattoo artist in the USA was Martin Hildebrandt, a German immigrant who arrived in Boston, Massachusetts in 1846. Between 1861 and 1865, he tattooed soldiers on both sides in the American Civil War. The first documented professional tattooist in Britain was established in Liverpool in the 1870s. Tattooing was an expensive and painful process and by the 1870s had become a mark of wealth for the crowned heads of Europe.

Why do people blow money?

Views: 41 Replies: 3 I know I am probably opening a can of worms here, but I cannot fathom the sheer amount of consumerism that takes place today.

I know the economy isn't great and all, but I constantly hear people complaining that they are broke. Yet I peak into the lives of these "broke people" and I notice very few people are actually broke.

To me, if you live on a tight budget, shop at thrift stores, drive a '99 Ford Escort and barely scrape by, then yes, you are broke.

But alot of broke people are not broke as a result of their environment, but as a result of their own actions.

They buy a new car and complain they cannot afford the payments. They dress in fancy clothes, wear Beats Headphones, have 65" flat screen TV's, and $15,000 in credit card debt,

People, financially speaking are very nearsighted, they think it's nothing to blow $3 each morning at Starbucks, not realizing they are spending close to $900 a year on their caffeine fix.

When I went to Chicago this year, I went into a Levi store and saw a simple pair of jeans was $78.00, yes...nearly $80 for a pair of pants, and even worse? People were buying them! My $15 jeans from Kmart work just fine.

Walk into a Rolex store..$7,000, for a ....watch. My $20 casio has kept perfect time for nearly 5 years. Again, same thing, people not blinking at dropping 7-15 grand for a watch.

Call me different, but these people dream of being rich, but you cannot create wealth by spending money. Wealth is created by saving money. Some of the richest people in the world, such as Warrent Buffet, live a very cheap way of life. The richest man in China spends $2 on a pair of shoes.

To me, it's very sickening. I suppose it is your money and you can do what you want with it, but why is the concept of "saving money" no longer commonplace among people? They think as soon as that paycheck hits their bank account, its a shopping spree, spare no expense.

I can see these very same people having little to no money put back for retirement, dipping in their kid's college savings, and working until their 80 to pay off their credit card debt.

I'm 22, and not like most people my age. My dad is almost 65 and people his age know the concept of saving money. Seems like people 30 and under have no understanding of it. "Let's make sure we have the largest flat screen in the neighborhood".

A local subdivision was building houses when I was in Chicago. "Single family homes STARTING at $229,000".

Who in their right mind pays nearly $250,000 for a house? You would be in debt your whole life.

It seems that's how people want to live these days, in the red instead of the green. If they can't afford it, they just charge it. You can never create wealth this way.

College Education Not Allowed for Tax-Credit Housing? WTF?
Added on : Wednesday July 30th 2014 10:00:08 PM
g: 0 Posted By: blindninja1
Views: 36 Replies: 0 Finalizing the paperwork with my landlord for my annual income recertification today, I learned of my consequence for a horrible, unthinkable decision I recently made. My crime? Please don't judge me too harshly, but I enrolled in a teaching certification program. Luckily for me, our government, has a rule in place to make sure my terrible actions will not go unpunished. The punishment? A swift, and all but imminent eviction, of course. I'll try to summarize some of the details:

My current job is no longer meeting the cost of living. Ineed certification to move up to a position that actually pays a living wage
Have a Bachelor's Degree already, can get teaching certification in under 2 years.
I'ma residentin a "tax-credit housing" apartment building
Building is new, relatively upscale, and relatively nice- I love it and don't want to move
Apartment is rent controlled @$585/month,about 1/2 of anything comparable in the area- I can't afford to move
I'm fiscally responsible, have a perfect credit rating, and the thought ofgoing into any debt for anythingother than the student loans I'm using to move up in life is terrifying
The law dictates that I need to move out within 5 months of the day I enrolled in my post grad education.

From my initial research, there seems to be only three ways around the pending life disaster
1) Add my gf to household. Problems: I'd need to get her on board with signing the paperwork, go through the background checks and income verification, make herself legally reponsible for a 2nd lease, and making my apartment her primary residence despite the fact she can't actually, because we both have cats, are not crazy enough to have any more in the same place, and could never bring ourselves to get rid of them like all the poor animals overwhelming shelters
2) Get roommate. Problems: A horrible idea with a million reasons why it would probably end very badly... It's only a 1-br, I'm a neatfreak, they could be a deadbeat... This is a last resort
3) Enroll in a federal or state funding job training program. Problem: I already work and go to school full time, need my current job for my teaching certification program field placement, and might not qualify anyway

replacing or rebuilding transmission
Added on : Sunday July 27th 2014 04:00:07 PM
g: 0 Posted By: davidbeckham
Views: 87 Replies: 1 I had my transmission with only 70K miles out from my Kia 2008 spectra a few weeks ago and was quoted from $1200-1800 for repair in NYC, and I ended up paying $1200 for them putting in a used one with 50K miles on it. There is a couple things I noticed while shopping around. Some Auto Body was only offering me for rebuilding tranny for $1600-1800, and others told me that usually they would look for a used one first and then if there wasn't any available they would look into the rebuilt option because a high percentage of rebuilt transmissions fail after a year or two . I understand that rebuilding costs more so that the shop would earn more from labor. Other than that, Is there any incentive for shops to push for rebuilding rather than getting a used one? Why did those shops not like to offer a used replacement first? I am trying to get some insight into this industry and figure out who is the honest guy here.

Business Loan or Crowd Fund?
Added on : Wednesday July 23rd 2014 07:00:05 PM
g: 0 Posted By: surfn2live
Views: 36 Replies: 0 FW Friends,
Looking for some advice on starting a business. Any direction, whether it is a point to another forum or personal experience, is greatly appreciated.

As with most businesses, initial capital is required. I have 30K on hand for my business for which I need a minimum of 47k- and ideally 55k to accomodate for appropriate promotion.

Bottom line, is the cost of interest on a loan worth the reduced time and effort of a crowdfunding campaign (kickstarter, indiegogo, etc...)

A loan for 25k through the SBA with veteran status will cost me $3,200 (3 year term/8% interest). I am over estimating interest rates to be worst case. With my credit, I would realistically expect prime plus 2.25 which today comes out to 5.5%.

Regarding the crowdfunding campaign, building a pool of supporters is a plus, as they will be a captive audience (400 supporters). With a loan, the same effort required for successful crowdfunding will be applied to a product vice the anticipation of a product. For example, "here try my product" vs. "donate $1 to try my product when it is complete."

I am trying to be short and to the point, I realize there are additional intricacies. Just looking for some big picture feedback.

Thanks

Adam

Views: 106 Replies: 0 Nikon D4 Digital SLR Camera Body

Nikon calls their D4 Digital SLR Camera a "total professional imaging machine". They would be correct in doing so. Designed for the working photographer, the D4 meets the most-demanding photog's needs and then some. Packed with features essential to getting the job done, and getting it done well this rig is more than a digital camera, it's a shooter's bread and butter.

Building off the basic structure of its predecessor, the D4 goes big in a number of ways which are sure to be appreciated. The camera features a 16.2Mp 36 x 23.9mm CMOS sensor with Nikon's FX-format and the EXPEED3 image processor. ISO sensitivity can now be extended as low as ISO 50 or as high as 204,800 with a standard range of 100-12,800 ISO. Additionally, 10 frames per second continuous shooting in FX-format for up to 200 shots ensures the decisive moment will not be missed.

The D4 records in RAW, JPEG, TIFF, and RAW + JPEG files. Metering options include RGB 3D Color Matrix III metering, center-weighted, and spot. Additionally, compatible storage media includes the future of professional storage, XQD memory cards, and Type I CompactFlash memory cards (UDMA compliant). Of course, NIKKOR AF-S and AF-I lenses are compatible with the D4 body, putting an extensive line of lenses at the photographer's disposal.

Another improvement on D4's little brother would be the slightly bigger LCD screen. Up from 3", the D4 has a 3.2" LCD monitor with a 170 viewing angle, approximately 100% frame coverage, automatic monitor brightness control, and Live View. In Live View the image can be enlarged up to 46x to make on the spot focus confirmation. Surrounding the monitor are illuminated buttons for ease of use even in low light. Additionally, quick access Live View confirms exposure, white balance, monitor hue, histogram, focus mode, AF area mode, and focusing accuracy with ease.

The D4 also boasts stellar auto focus features - like 51 AF points, an AF mode selector switch, and fast AF point selection. All three of these components of the AF system ensure accurate, fast shooting whether the subject is a room full of children or a high-speed sporting event.

Of course, the D4 wouldn't be a professional level DSLR if it didn't include full HD video capture. The D4 does so, making it equally a pro videographer's tool as much as a pro photographer's. From 1080p broadcast quality video at 30 or 24 fps to full manual control to the option to add an external mic for stereo audio capture, the D4 isn't just a digital camera that also captures video.

Features like the aforementioned Live View allow the videographer to confirm capture of their footage on the camera's LCD and an external (optional) monitor simultaneously. It also gives you access to Picture Controls to handle the look and feel of the video, in-camera. Peak audio meters also allow the videographer to adjust sound levels manually in 20 incremental steps. Remote start and stop of view using wired and wireless remote accessories is also an option, among many others.

Detailed Specifications:

Lens Mount: Nikon F
Camera Format Full-Frame (1.0x Crop Factor)
Memory Card Type: XQD, CompactFlash
Built-in Flash: No
Video Recording: Yes, NTSC/PAL
Continuous Shooting: Up to 10 fps

Forearm exercises and hand strength training for building a strong grip are important components of a complete workout which are often overlooked.

However, there are great benefits for people who take the time to train their hands and make them stronger. Think about itwhether you're playing a sport, working out in the gym, or just fulfilling your day-to-day responsbilities, your hands are what you use to interact with almost everything around you.

You can have all the upper body strength in the world, but if your hands and forearms aren't strong enough to deliver that strength to the baseball bat, tennis racket, hockey stick, barbell, or whatever else you're trying to move, it's not worth very much.

Strong and healthy hands are also just a wonderful asset to have in your daily life. You'll never stop needing your hands, and taking the time to keep them in great shape is a very smart long-term investment in your body.

Hand And Forearm Exercises teaches you a full set of hand strengthening exercises, complete with pictures and detailed descriptions to ensure proper form. These are interesting and effective exercise which are also quite convenientmost require either common household objects or no equipment at all.

Views: 817 Replies: 0 Just want to share my story as it has unfolded so far related to car rental.

I took my car into the dealer last week for repair. Extended warranty covers vehicle rental for me. I went to Enterprise and got a vehicle which I then promptly backed into a building and caused bumper damage. I chose not to get Enterprise's insurance.

I talked to a collision shop before turning the vehicle in and he said that I would need a brand new bumper put in. No way to repair the existing bumper (Ram 1500 chrome bumper). Cost would be $635. I decided to wait until I turned the vehicle in and see what they said. They had me fill out an incident report and give them $500 on the spot which is equivalent to my insurance deductible EVEN THOUGH I hadn't yet decided to put it through insurance. Enterprise called me a couple days later to tell me what the collision shop would charge (technically I called them a few days in a row before I finally got them info). Shop wanted $533. If the true final cost was $533 then I would just pay out of pocket. Problem is that there will also be an administrative fee. No one can commit to exactly what that will be. There will also be a daily loss of use fee. No one can commit to what that will be per day nor how many days I'll be charge. Basically I'm estimating a total of $652. AAA cannot commit to whether loss of use and/or the administrative fee will be covered --- I suspect not but they can't tell me until I file a claim and I'm contacted by a claim handler. Also, in my research I have found that under $500 in damage is a $50 admin fee, over $500 is a $100 fee. I can't help but think that the collision shop's estimate being just over $500 is not random chance (I have read online about other's experience with this). I contacted Chase Sapphire. Though I used my card to put a deposit down, Chase won't cover anything since I didn't use the card to pay in full (extended warranty paid it).

I have been advised that I can call my local Enterprise in a few days to ask how many days I'll be charged for loss of use. I will be contacted by MAIL in 3 weeks by the Damage Recovery Unit with final numbers etc.

That is current status. I'll try to update this thread as I find out more.

Problem is, apartment is located on 6th floor, which is top floor, and right above on the roof are cell phone towers. I'm not a health freak or germaphobe, but I don't like the idea being so close to such huge amount of RF radiation. Would you take that apartment? If you wouldn't, what would be a minimum distance of of you living away from cell phone towers? There is another apartment offer just a few floors below.

Dealer Service damaged vehicle - chargeback?
Added on : Sunday July 06th 2014 11:00:08 AM
g: 0 Posted By: cbyahoo
Views: 135 Replies: 1 Man, I've had one of those "awful" service experiences with Ford dealer.
I had a really expensive brake job on a commercial class vehicle. I knew the service would be expensive ($1400), but I wanted Ford to warranty the work and not have anything to worry about for a while. I'd do it myself, but this vehicle has a history of brake issues in general and I wanted the coverage.
Dropped the vehicle off, they inspected it and came up with the following:
1) Dragging front brakes, which I indicated when coming in - Recommended rebuilding all calipers and full brake job.
2) "Dirty" Fuel system - said the fuel filter was of unknown age, air filter was dirty upon inspection, and throttle body was dirty upon inspection.
3) Rear differential seal leaking (knew this going in).

I asked them to replace (not rebuild) front calipers, rebuild rears, and service the differential. I declined the fuel system service, but this caught my attention because I knew the air filter had 2k miles on it. Also the throttle body is way in the back of this thing, it's somewhat difficult to inspect. Total for service, about $1600 for the things that I approved.

They called, said it was done, picked it up a week later. Paid, picked up the keys and walked back to get it. I immediately cracked the air filter housing, wanting to see that "dirty" filter. It was clean... So I immediately got under the vehicle.
Front calipers new - new hardware, new pads. Rear calipers look great, new seals, new hardware. I notice that the front rotors haven't been turned and I had specifically discussed this with the service adviser. I can't see the rears due to a cover, but on a vehicle this big, getting the rotors off is a big job and represents at least 50% of the labor. Basically they charged me a lot for labor that they didn't actually do.

Walk back to the service adviser, he says "he'll check" - goes in the back for 15 minutes. Apparently the lathe was "down" and no one said anything. They indicate that there isn't anything they can do. I said "not OK". The sent me to the service manager.
Service manager apologizes. I tell him I want to take it and they can discount the work - I'll have it finished elsewhere. He says they'd rather complete it- "do it right". They offer some other minor services for free and I let them keep it and indicate they'll need to do something "else". I think this was my mistake as I didn't walk - and it allowed them to clean up the mess they were in - and I could have charged it back at this point. I did make sure the general manager had some visibility into what happened here.

Forward one week - they call, say it's ready (again). Won't discount it. Offer to deliver the vehicle (it's 1.5 hours away) and fill it up with gas. I OK that. They offer credit for future services (yea, right)!

Pickup the vehicle. Both mirrors have blue impact marks down the sides, not huge, but noticeable. Right mirror is out of alignment and isn't usable without disassembly. I call them, send photos of blue paint - which matches their service bay lifts. Indicate that the right mirror will need to be replaced and the left one must be replaced in order to match. Send them the part numbers + $100/labor, which is about $550. They say that the want to make it "right" and I need to let them have the vehicle again. I indicate that it's not going in for service at that dealership and that they can cut a check. They said they'd discuss it and get back to me, but that was a week ago.

At this point, I assume they're not going to discuss or cover the bill. Two questions:
1) Can I charge back due to damage that occurred as part of their service? Card terms indicate that incorrect service or incomplete service can be charged back, but nothing about damages due to service. Chances of success?
2) I realize I can sue, of course, but we're looking at $100-$200 to have them served, court fees, etc... My time is worth more than the net result.

I have refrained from writing reviews, but I do have the "nuclear" option of documenting their "mistakes". I have written copies of them indicating that I have a dirty fuel system - dirty air filter and photos of an almost new one showing up.. Not to mention failing to actually do the work they were billing for the first time. I have not contacted Ford. I don't buy new vehicles, so I'm probably not that strong of a reference customer.

Best case, the failure to do the brake work was a communications failure and they didn't actually look at the fuel system, as that's a pretty standard dealership up sell. Worst case, they're charging for things that they don't actually do and trying to get away with it along with up selling the typical high margin services.

Car was parked on the street. Do I have a leg to stand on to get the management company to chip in for the deductible given that the tree is dead & probably should have been removed ages ago? Deductible is $1k. I can pay it, but of course I'd prefer not to.

Views: 20 Replies: 0 The Wizard of Oz Vocabulary Builder
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003VD1GGK/

4.5 out of 5 stars (20 customer reviews)

If your vocabulary needs building but you dont like to read, this book is for you. Thats because people remember the meanings of unfamiliar words only if they learn them in contextby reading. And the fastest and most painless way of putting that idea into practice is by reading just one short book that happens to include all the vocabulary words you need to knowfor standardized tests such as the SAT or GRE, or for everyday intelligent-sounding conversation.

Just as people might use The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog to easily and conveniently test out the keys of a typewriter or computer (because it contains all 26 letters of the alphabet in a single, short sentence), you can use The Wizard of Oz Vocabulary Builder (a specially rewritten version of L. Frank Baums classic, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz) to easily and conveniently build your vocabulary (because it contains all the words you need to know, 1850 of them, in context, in a single, short book).

NOTE: Whereas the physical edition of this book includes definitions by the author at the bottom of each page, this Kindle edition instead makes use of Kindles built-in dictionary. In the story, each vocabulary word appears in capital letters. Simply use Kindles Lookup feature to instantly reveal the definition of the word. (If the built-in dictionary seems not to include the word in question, use Kindles Search feature to find the word in the built-in dictionary. If the word still does not appear, search for a simpler form of the word; that is, present tense rather than past tense, singular rather than plural, and so on.) For a Kindle book that includes the authors own definitions (with illustrative sentences), see Vocabulary Dictionary and Workbook: 2,856 Words You Must Know, which contains all words from this book, as well as all of those found in the authors Pinocchio Intermediate Vocabulary Builder.

Views: 28 Replies: 1 I have a 15 years old house built by a reputable builder. (It wasa model home when they were building this community.)
We had a hail in our area that lasted for about 10 minutes. After that the street was flooded with roofing contractors and it seemed like everyone is getting a new roof.
The problem is that I have a 10k deductible on my insurance thinking I'm only insuring for major disasters. I do plan to pay out of pocket(and have enough savings) to self-insure up to 10k if there is a real need for any repairs.

My wife is getting really nervous that everyone is replacing their roof so our roof "MUST have hail damages".
So I went up totake a look and it seemed like the asphalt shinglesall looked just fine everywhere. I even tried to poke a few of them with a screwdriver but they seem steady.

Since I have a 10k deductible, should I even bother getting the insurance involved?
Or could my home be "the only super home on the street" that does not have hail damage?
Am I wrong to carry a 10k deductible to save my insurance premiums? I did it for a reason because the insurance premiums have gone up by more than 100% in since 2008.

I would appreciate any feedbacks. Thanks.

Views: 5686 Replies: 99 I'm considering purchasing a house that needs substantial updating to use as my primary residence. The house is on nearly an acre, was built in the 1950s, added on to in the 1970s, and not much has been done since. It appears to be an estate sale, and the property hasn't changed hands in 25+ years. The sellers are asking $290K, and it's only been on the market for a few days. The market around here is really hot right now, but I don't think this property will necessarily be a super hot commodity. I'm prepping an offer around $250K, and would be willing to go up from there, but I'm not sure how high.

The concern I have is overbuilding the house for the neighborhood. The neighborhood is a total mixed bag, but is in a very desirable location. The nearby properties include houses just like this, and new properties in the range of (EDIT) $600K - $1M+ that were recently build after tearing down the old house and starting over (it's a small neighborhood, these properties are literally three houses down the street and the neighborhood is probably 1/2 old and new, but this particular street skews toward older properties). My agent thinks the land is the most valuable part of the property, valuing it at around $200K, but she says she wouldn't personally put any money into this house and would instead tear it down. This is one of the larger lots in the neighborhood -- many of the others are only 1/2 of an acre, so this is nearly double.

If I put a reasonable amount into rehabbing ($50-60K as a ballpark), I think this could easily be a $400K+ property for someone who wants to live in this area, but who can't afford the $1M+ new properties. The other potential complication is that another neighborhood is slated to go in across the highway within 3-5 years. My agent thinks these will be $500K-$600K properties, but on much smaller lots. I think, like me, there are people that value a really large lot in a good location, but I've not done something like this before and would like to get some good counsel first.

Any thoughts from all of the real estate pros on here?

UPDATE with inspection photos below, thoughts welcome.

I made a small purchase and got 2 coupons on my receipt: $10 of $20 good at other "local area Staples store", and $30 off $60 online only. Both are 16-digit codes and good starting 7/06 through 8/16. Both have the usual restrictions including computers, netbooks, tablets, eReaders, Apple and Bose products, Epson ink/toner, and (on the in-store coupon only) HP ink/toner. I don't know if they're tracked by Staples Rewards # as I only made 1 purchase.

Display shredders are 40% off and display tablets are 30% off, and some clearance is 20% off. Might be other deals I didn't notice. There's a bit less stock in the store but not drastically at this point.

The seven-horsepower DuroStar DS4000S generator can be a supplemental source of electricity and comes in handy during power-outages. With an EZ-pull recoil start and a four-gallon tank, this unit can run for a maximum of eight hours at 50% power.

Location and Use
The unit can be transported in a large trunk, flat-bed truck or even an RV. The generator should never be used indoors. Incorrect use of the generator might lead to carbon monoxide poisoning from toxic exhaust fumes. Using a generator outdoors is the recommended option. If it is raining, the generator should be placed under an elevated tarp, or a small overhang. Water damage to any electrical parts of the generator may render it useless. Furthermore, the unit should be at least three feet from a wall or drapery and should be kept away from a. a flammable structure. About the Engine
This DuroStar DS4000S generator has an air-cooled OHV engine with a low-oil shut-off, adding to the durability of this generator. An external warning light will come on when the fuel is running low. After 20 hours of use the generator should have an oil change to ensure the parts do not overheat. Additionally, the oil drain beneath the generator will need to be emptied occasionally so as not to overflow. A full power panel on the DuroStar 7 HP generator that houses the fuel gauge also has a volt meter indicating exactly how much power is being generated. Also, the unit has a circuit breaker, so that if the system is overloaded, it will automatically turn off the affected unit in an effort to prevent damage. A maximum AC output of 4000 watts enables the generator to power several small to medium-sized appliances. A heavy system frame on the DuroStar 7 HP generator has four-point isolated motor mounts for smooth and quiet operation.

Certifications and Utilization
The unit is approved by the EPA, an important feature for modern appliances. To be EPA-certified the manufacturing process and the parts have to be in compliance with current standards and the unit should ventilate properly. Power specifications of this 4000-watt generator include two 120-volt, 20-amp, and 60 Hz NEMA 5-2 0R outlets. Furthermore, one 120-volt, 30-amp, 60 Hz NEMA L5-30 outlet is included on the unit. The plug for this single outlet differs in design for high-powered appliances that can handle a 2880 VA equipment load. Always ensure the unit is not overloaded, and perhaps only at half-capacity. If the electricity requirements are unknown, it is best not to plug the appliance in. Attempting to power an entire home with the generator can lead to an electrical fire.

Overall Use
The powerful 4000-watt generator has a 69 dB muffler system that will reduce overall engine noise significantly. Also, a four-stroke OHV single cylinder engine with a forced air cooling system ensures the unit does not overheat. To prevent potential igniting, the container should be sealed tightly to stop the vapors from entering the air. The unit should be completely turned off before fuel is added to reduce the risk of fire. Also, if the engine is hot, any gasoline that is spilled will potentially ignite. The fuel required by the manufacturer is the only fuel that should be used. The use of a non-preferred fuel could damage the unit or result in injury. Overall, the unit weighs approximately 90 pounds when no fuel is added. This portable generator comes with a tool kit as well as an operating manual. Measuring 20 inches wide by 27 inches long by 22 inches tall, the generator is fairly compact. When the generator is no longer needed, the owner should clean the unit to remove debris. When not in use, the generator should be stored in a well ventilated area to prevent harmful fumes from building up.

Advice on rebuilding credit
Added on : Sunday June 22nd 2014 09:00:04 PM
g: 0 Posted By: dgsion
Views: 62 Replies: 0 Hi guys, I know there are some sharp folks here. Long story short I'm 29 years old and about 4 years ago I lost everything I had and some $ borrowed from banks in the stock market. That, coupled with student loans made my credit score go from near 800 to the floor. I checked it a few months ago and I think it was around 500 something. My question is what would you recommend for rebuilding it? I know most places won't extend a line of credit, via retail or others but I heard some are easier than others.. someone said Amazon was easier? My debts are still outstanding but written off, so correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the credit score will not be dinged if that's the case. Cheers.

Views: 218 Replies: 2 I have personal experience owning/renting/managing single family homes and duplexes. I have generally preferred the single family homes. In the neighborhoods I feel most comfortable, these are roughly $100,000 homes that rent at around 1% of that per month.

I was browsing MLS listings the other day and ran across a much larger property that I have no experience with. For about $600k, there is a 24 unit building available. Rectangular basic box shape, all brick, built in 1964, total sq ft about 16k, sitting on about 1 acre.

Granted these are small units at 670 sq ft and very plain inside. But they are kept up, in good shape, and the building is fully leased at around $600/month. It is listed as "commercial", I don't know what tax implications that brings about.

This is the first time I've even looked at something like this and the numbers look too good to be true. Even if 4 of 24 units goes vacant, we are talking a monthly rental intake of 2% of purchase cost, double what many here on FW would consider investment grade.

I have the skills to handle all mild to moderate repair and updates myself. If I quit my job, I would have the time to manage the 24 units. (Let's leave that angle out of this thread for now.)

I'd love to hear from other people that have buildings in this general size range. Do you find that the cookie cutter design makes repairs easier, because you know what to expect in each unit? Do you find that common area repairs (roof, drive, parking), while being more expensive and requiring a lot of cash, are easier to manage as projects, than having several smaller properties to juggle and visit? Wouldn't the lost income when someone moves out be much lower than a single family home because a smaller fraction of my investment is unrented at any given time?

I'm having a hard time thinking of negatives, besides the fact that the tenants are more likely to be young, single, perhaps careless, and more transient. But compared to spending $600k on 6 single family homes, we're talking twice the rental income. Seems worth the potential tenant issues.

Thank you to everyone with experience that weighs in!

Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of designing your surroundings to influence your health, success and happiness. This is just as important in the garden as it is in the home or office. If you want your garden to provide what you want whether it is space for mediation or a place to entertain friends Feng Shui will help achieve it.

Garden Feng Shui examines the following aspects of this fascinating subject:
-The principles of Feng Shui
- Feng Shui remedies in the garden
-The shape and layout of the garden
-Functional and decorative garden buildings
-Water features
-Seats and ornaments
-Plants to fit in with the Feng Shui of your garden

Create harmony and happiness in your garden with this simple, clear guide.

Feng shui is the ancient Chinese art of designing your surroundings to influence your health, success and happiness. It is a way of being in control of your own life; taking action to change the things you are not satisfied with, and capitalizing on the aspects of your life which you like.

Today, many people have learnt to practice Feng Shui in their homes by rearranging their living space and furniture, redecorating, changing the use of certain rooms and so on. But Feng Shui is every bit as important in the garden as it is indoors. It is no good having a perfect house if your garden is an overgrown mess. If you want every aspect of your life to benefit from good Feng Shui, you must use Feng Shui in every part of your property.

Improve Your Life and Your Garden

Not only will good Feng Shui in the garden bring you benefits in your life in general, it will also have the more specific - but also important - advantage of improving your garden as a place to spend your time. The principles of good Feng Shui are a good set of principles for garden design, too. A good Feng Shui garden is also an attractive and pleasant garden for whatever purpose you want: for meditating, for entertaining friends, for your children to play safely, or simply for relaxing.

The principle behind Feng Shui is that positive cosmic energy, or ch'i, needs to flow smoothly and freely through its surroundings in order to create harmony. This book explains how to improve the flow of ch'i in your own garden. We will look at all the features which go to make up a garden, and consider how each can be used or adapted to maximize good Feng Shui. These features will include:

- the shape of the garden
- entrances and boundaries
- light and shade
- flower beds, lawns, paths and patios
- garden buildings
- water features
- seats and arbours
- statues and ornaments
- plants in the garden.


You will see from this list that although plants are, of course, important in the garden, there are all sorts of other features which matter too. It is perfectly possible to have a garden with virtually no plants in it - especially if you have only a small space - and this does not mean that it cannot have good Feng Shui. The flow of ch'i is certainly affected by plants, but it is just as strongly influenced by paths or buildings, open spaces or brightly colored ornaments.

Product Features
Capture every detail true to life
The D7100 marks an exciting advancement in image quality for high-resolution DX-format cameras. Nikon specially designed its 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor without using an optical low pass filter (OLPF), resulting in the purest, sharpest images using D7100's DX-format CMOS sensor.
Speed and precision in harmony
When the action speeds up, fire a blazing fast 6 frames per second continuously for up to 100 shots. Building on the acclaimed autofocus system from the D300s, the D7100 uses 51 focus points, including 15 cross-type sensors for detecting both vertical and horizontal contrast variations, to achieve fast, precise focus. The central cross-type sensor works all the way down to f/8, a huge advantage when using compatible teleconverters. At the same time, a highly accurate 2016-pixel RGB sensor evaluates every scene, taking into account brightness, contrast, subject distance and color, for spot-on auto operations like Face-Priority and full-time autofocus during video capture.
Create movies that amaze
With full-time autofocus and manual exposure control during video recording, a built-in stereo microphone and an external stereo microphone jack, headphone and HDMI jacks, the D7100 achieves exceptional cinematic reproduction and quality. Dual SD card slots give you additional recording time, and a 60i function enables smooth playback on HDTVs or external monitors.

Views: 4285 Replies: 83 I'm considering purchasing a house that needs substantial updating to use as my primary residence. The house is on nearly an acre, was built in the 1950s, added on to in the 1970s, and not much has been done since. It appears to be an estate sale, and the property hasn't changed hands in 25+ years. The sellers are asking $290K, and it's only been on the market for a few days. The market around here is really hot right now, but I don't think this property will necessarily be a super hot commodity. I'm prepping an offer around $250K, and would be willing to go up from there, but I'm not sure how high.

The concern I have is overbuilding the house for the neighborhood. The neighborhood is a total mixed bag, but is in a very desirable location. The nearby properties include houses just like this, and new properties in the range of (EDIT) $600K - $1M+ that were recently build after tearing down the old house and starting over (it's a small neighborhood, these properties are literally three houses down the street and the neighborhood is probably 1/2 old and new, but this particular street skews toward older properties). My agent thinks the land is the most valuable part of the property, valuing it at around $200K, but she says she wouldn't personally put any money into this house and would instead tear it down. This is one of the larger lots in the neighborhood -- many of the others are only 1/2 of an acre, so this is nearly double.

If I put a reasonable amount into rehabbing ($50-60K as a ballpark), I think this could easily be a $400K+ property for someone who wants to live in this area, but who can't afford the $1M+ new properties. The other potential complication is that another neighborhood is slated to go in across the highway within 3-5 years. My agent thinks these will be $500K-$600K properties, but on much smaller lots. I think, like me, there are people that value a really large lot in a good location, but I've not done something like this before and would like to get some good counsel first.

Any thoughts from all of the real estate pros on here?

Views: 190 Replies: 2 Situation:
I have an interesting situation where another unit owner may have family members interested in moving to the area. Because of various (some obvious) reasons, they would prefer to live as close as possible, ideally in our building. At this point, there has only been a query from neighbor of "are you still looking to sell soon?" with the explanation above. At this point, I have not talked to her family members or have any idea of their real interest.

Background:
I'm wanting to sell my city Condo to move out to a SFH in the burbs. We've been wanting to do it for a year or two now, but haven't really gotten around to looking in earnest. We can probably be in here for another year before things start getting cramped. Realistically, we could probably stay 2-3 more years here if required - but after that I think we need to start looking at an area with schools above the 30% mark.

The unit is one of 8 in the building and the last unit sold (across the hall, identical to mine, though maybe not as in good condition) for about 70% of the value I paid for my unit in 2006. Part of the reason it sold so cheap was that it was a foreclosure. Currently, all the units in the building are sold and about half are owner occupied - the rest are rented. One other unit sold at foreclosure about a year or two previously. Other units went up for sale, but the owners decided to keep them as rentals since likely they didn't get their asking price within the short time frame they were trying to sell (all were moving out of state).
Additionally, rent in this area is pretty high and I can probably rent my unit for my costs, but I don't believe I would clear more than say $3-4k a year. I am not really interested in the hassle of being a land lord or the possible extra expenses that may wipe out my yearly take as well as the complications of two mortgages on properties this high.

Challenges:
All being said, it would be extremely convenient for us to have a willing buyer with an extra incentive to have *our* place (or at least one in the building). Likely they would have an elastic schedule, as I believe this will be a second home, which may make things easier for us.
Of course, I'm not willing to just give them an awesome price just because I'm being approached in this manner. But, it does give me some incentive.

I know I'm not going to recoup the total investment in the condo. But, the first thing I am trying to figure out is what is the real value of the property? I obviously think it is worth more than what the foreclosure sold for.
Zillow's Zestimate of my place is about 10% higher than the foreclosure sold for, however it alsoshows the value of the recently sold foreclosed unit for 15% less than what it actually foreclosed for.
I've seen some other indicators that the value maybe 20-25% higher than what the foreclosure sold for, so I have no idea what to trust.

I'm also under the impression that I could take an offer slightly below market value because no realtors are involved (at least I don't think they will need to be). Is that a smart way to think? I realize I can always sell at any time without a realtor, but in this case all the work and challenges of that are taken care of.

In short, I'm interested to make an attractive price and sell since it gives me the incentive to move right now without a lot of the hassle. But, I don't want to take significantly less than market value (whatever that means).

A further possible complication is that there are 4 units in the building which are currently being rented. I wouldn't be surprised if they attempt to make contact with the other units owner's to gauge their interest in selling instead of continuing to rent. My only advantage here is that the other units have leases for renters right now but if these people are flexible they might not mind waiting say 6 months to get another unit at a substantial savings. OTOH, some of these units have been rented for 2-3 years and I have the feeling those owners are looking to hold on to the units as long as possible to try and recoup their initial costs - or - some of them were purchased at a lower price than mine (with a better rate) that makes them more attractive for rental opportunities.

Any advice on how to approach this is appreciated. It may be a few weeks before I know how serious the potential buyers are - but I'd like to be prepared when that time comes.

How to deal with this insurance claim?
Added on : Monday June 09th 2014 06:00:07 AM
g: 0 Posted By: kubakj
Views: 0 Replies: 0 I am in the insurance claim loop now and looking for some idea how to proceed. I have a condo insured thru Allstate. Condo by-laws require to insure anything inside the apartment. Building has a building wise insurance as well to cover common elements. In January there was huge leak in the building from few floors above during the night into my living room as I was sleeping in the bedroom, so water was dripping like crazy whole night. As a result many my personal items was destroyed/damaged as well as portion of wood floor was damaged and ceiling as well. This leak initiated from one of the condo member and they quick announced that no one made a negligence and we should just ask our insurance for payment. Of course I was pissed as I have $1k deductible and Allstate DENIED reimbursement for my floors and ceiling (two major expenses) damages. I have to change sheet rock for my entire ceiling and few sq^2 of wood floor needs to be replaced. Allstate stated that bylaws says any casualty in the building like that should be covered by building insurance. I asked building management to initiate claim with building insurance, but their agent calls me and says that my responsibility, as others have been paid by their insurances for all damages and I should go back to allstate. I asked him to anything in writing, nothing. After few months now I asked ALL parties to either get paid or denied for the damages and provide in writing why. Building insurance agent is not responding to any phone calls, management and condo board just talked to him and he assured them that will take care of it with Allstate. Building insurance didn't even start any claim and their agent's secretary ALWAYS says he is not available and HE will call me back, but never does.

So now I have damaged floor and ceiling with not my fault and no one wants to talk to me. I didn't go to any lawyer for advice yet, as I don't have much free time for that, but now I am ready to take some action.

Any suggestion how I should deal with it? Also I think I should be responsible for my deductible if leak came from other unit. Its either that tenant should pay for it or HOA for not protecting building system from freezing.

I am just afraid now that in case there was fire or something worse, I will be left with nothing.

Inheritance Question
Added on : Tuesday June 03rd 2014 06:00:06 AM
g: 0 Posted By: dd564
Views: 16 Replies: 0 Family situation:
I have 3 brothers and a sister. All five of us are married and are in our late 30's - early 40's.
My parents are 82 and 67 and they live on a farm where we all grew up. The farm has been in the family for a couple generations and it is important to my dad that after they pass away that the farm stays in our family name.

Because of this, they don't want my sister to move to the home because she has a different last name.
I don't want to move to it because my wife and I aren't interested. We live about 30 minutes away, and don't see ourselves moving there in the next 5, 10, 20, 40 years. Two of my other brothers don't want it or couldn't afford to buy it. The other no one wants to take it, because it would turn into a junkyard of waste like his current house.

One of the things they are trying to put into the will / trust is that the farm must stay in the family name. I'm not sure if this is for a number of years, or until we all die, or what. No one has any idea who would actually live there or be able to purchase it, or want to. They think just renting out the land is good income that could be split five-ways. Meanwhile, the house and home place doesn't have a logical new owner.
Also, my three brothers who live nearby all use the current buildings for storage, work-space, etc., and my sister and I assume they'll continue this use (thus they like the idea of the farm staying in the name) after they pass.

I believe the way it is written, this would be shared property. My concern is that in this situation, what is to prevent anyone (a sibling, or an in-law) to use the inherited land as collateral, essentially creating a cesspool of debt if they should desire.

Is my concern unwarranted?

Best place to get a conventional renovation mortgage
Added on : Wednesday May 28th 2014 03:00:06 AM
g: 0 Posted By: lazyace
Views: 0 Replies: 0 I am considering buying a condo that need a complete rehab, or at the very least new baths and kitchen. This is an estate sale and the building is not FHA approved. What is a good place for a conventional renovation loan? I know Wells Fargo is offering them, but are they an OK lender? From what I have read, there are many potential problems that could arise in the process, so a decent level of customer service is essential.

I am also an immigrant and a first time buyer i.e. no experience with home ownership, lenders, or contractors. This kind of project seems too ambitious, but I have been looking for a long time and pretty much everything about this condo is perfect other than the fact that it needs work. Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated.

I tried everything. Changing shoes, changing nutrition, changing my running form and changing my training plan. I even prayed to the running gods! It didn't matter. Every time I'd bolt out the door for a run something new would hurt. I was a broken down, frustrated runner. The most common pain was in my calves and I used to joke that you could flip a coin for which one was going to hurt that day. Because of this, I wasn't getting fitter and my times certainly weren't getting faster (in fact, they were getting slower). Running wasn't fun.

Even though it seems like only yesterday, that was five years ago. At the time, the more things I changed, the more it felt like I was wasting my time. But slowly my running started to improve. My body felt better...and healthier. I got fitter...and I got faster. I'm an experimenter at heart - I love tinkering with different things and trying to figure out not only what works...but what works the BEST. In this case, I was after the secret sauce of running.

And I believe I've found it.

In this book you'll receive not only the 50 Best Tips EVER for Running Fitter, Faster and Forever, you'll also receive:

- Instructional videos on running drills, flexibility and running-specific strength training
- Training pace calculator
- 6 audio downloads for mental toughness
- 8 training programs ranging from 5k to marathon
- 5 bonus videos on barefoot running, overuse injuries and how building a better butt will lead to a better life

And MUCH MORE!

If you're just starting out and you think this book isn't for you because you're "not a runner," it is! It will get you started on the right foot and help you get the most out of your running...whatever that means to YOU.

Views: 25 Replies: 2 Looking to purchase my first home. I understand thefundamentals of home financingas I've read up the basics of mortgages over the past few weeks.

Background: I have a job in finance with decent pay but the whole industry is unstable and everyone is "fired at will" - there is no heads up, or guaranteed severance. I don't think I will be permanently unemployed if I lose my job but there could be employment gaps. Therefore, I am looking for some protection for the worst case scenario.

The house I'm planning to purchase will be about $500k. The house is in an area in NYC with good rental activity, and I project to generate at least $3,000 a month in rental income (2 units, before expenses). Therefore I should only have to pay for water and other smaller expenses. This is a new building that qualifies for property taxes abatement for about 10 years (I think) so taxes will be minimal.

I've saved up enough for 20% down, closing costs (~$30,000), and about 22 months of mortgage payments for 30-year fixed @ 4% (or 16 months for 15-year fixed @ 3.25%). Monthly payments (assume 20% down, so $400,000 mortgage) are as follows:

30-year fixed @ 4% = $1,900/month ($287,500 total interest paid over life of loan)
15-year fixed @ 3.25% = $2,800/month ($105,000 total interest paid over life of loan)

A 15-year fixed mortgage certainly saves me a lot of interest expenses, but I also don't want to be wiped out should I become unemployed for an extended period of time. My friend suggested me to go with a 30-year fixed, then prepaid whenever possible to lower my interest payment. Assume the best case scenario if I prepaid $900 monthly, then this happens:

30-year fixed @ 4% = $1,900/month + $900 prepaid ($151,000 total interest paid over life of loan)

In a nut shell, I would pay about $50,000 for an "insurance" that could let me fall back onto a 30-year mortgage with $1,900 monthly payment, which my projected rental income should cover along with other house-related expenses.

Here are a few questions:
- Is such an insurance worth it? I know it's obviously subjective, but a $50,000 insurance sounds like a lot.
- What about refinancing as a form of insurance? What if I go ahead with a 15-year fixed and then refinance (although interest rates would most likely have gone up) should I need to?
- Is this commonly done? Any potential hurdles?
- I read that the approximate cost of refinancing is 2-6% of the total mortgage. Assuming I fall onto hard times in 5 years (by then I'll have $286,000 principal left on the mortgage), does that mean it'd cost about $15,000 to refinance (assuming 5% refinance cost)? Any other associated costs?

Sorry for the long write up and thanks for any tips

TL;DR: is refinancing a cost-effective way to lower monthly mortgage payments?

Free Kindle Book- The Dakota Scrapbook: Exterior (was $12.00)

Completed in 1884, the Dakota Apartment building has been the home of numerous luminaries of business, literature, stage, and screen. Some of the first residents to live there included members of the Steinway family, as well as successful publishers, merchants, and even a Bishop. Hundreds of rarely-seen and vintage articles and photos from the late 1800s and into the 20th century help tell the astonishing history of the Dakota while showcasing many of its architectural wonders.

For over 100 years the Dakota's appearance has inspired a sense of mystery and history within people, says Cardinal, an Investigative Historian whose private memorabilia collection was the foundation for the book and an associated forthcoming documentary. Now they can experience the early days of the Dakota and the Upper West Side first-hand by viewing the actual vintage articles, photos, sketches, and design plans from that time. We also share a lot of information and trivia which is of great interest to anyone interested in architecture, the history of New York, and great true stories.

Among the educational trivia in the book is that the Dakota was considered to be one of the first or perhaps even the first - luxury apartment building in New York by offering such amenities as residential elevators, multiple bathrooms per apartment, kitchens, a barber shop, firewood and coal delivery, and a private dining room for residents so they did not have to hire a staff to cook for them. In fact, their meals could be enjoyed in the first floor restaurant or the meals could be delivered and served by the Dakota's staff in the residents' apartments.

The Dakota Scrapbook gives readers a grand tour around the exterior of the Dakota, which also includes a unique glimpse of the roof - which resembles a miniature European village - and also invites readers into the Dakota's guarded Courtyard
which showcases two stunning cast-iron water fountains which once served as the center of a turn-around for horses-and-carriages. It is the Dakota's unique architecture and history that allowed it to be designated as a New York City Landmark in 1969. The building was also added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972, and it was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1976.

The Dakota Scrapbooks were researched, written and designed by a team of Investigative Historians, writers, and photographers known as The Cardinals.

Looking for a whole bunch of advice on saving towards a home
Added on : Thursday May 08th 2014 06:00:06 PM
g: 0 Posted By: SyZpuzzler
Views: 84 Replies: 3 Hello,

Here is my entire backstory since I feel it is at least partially necessary to understand the situation:

29 years 5 months, currently working at Allstate making 39k a year in CA. UCLA degree in stats. Didn't finish until I was 26, long story. Current financial situation is:

Renting for $600 a month
12k student loans to one company, 17k to another. Total 29k, anywhere from 2.1% to 5.8%. $130 min payment for first, $210 for second
8.5k lien to Toyota for my 11 Yaris with 55k miles, should last a good while. 1.9% interest. $190 min payment
3.3k balance on a 4.8k limit with something absurd like 15% interest. $72 minimum payment
Car insurance + phone = $180 a month
Gas = roughly $75 a month
Food = varies

Other than that, I don't have many expenses. I go out with my girlfriend of 11 months, sometimes we eat out, or go into San Francisco (I'm currently in Pleasanton), go shopping, buy jigsaw puzzles, etc

Doing the math on the salary, after taxes and health insurance I pocket around $1200 every 2 weeks = $31.2k net a year

My plan, up through last week, was to pay off that 40k debt ASAP and then save for a house, with the aim of only ever purchasing one house in an area I really wanted. At that point I would be married, still single, whatever

At work we had a financial planner come, and he looked over everything and told me I was wrong.

Being good at math and logical thinking, he explained it to me this way:

Instead of paying off your 40k debt asap, you can make minimum payments and open up a savings account with the sole purpose of putting away money each paycheck for real estate. This money is not a 'savings account', it's just named that. This is not my money. I can't go take out 6k in a year when my car dies and I need it. This is another debt, and we can think of it as 'Jeff's future home purchase'.

This is where a part local to me comes in: Livermore, CA supposedly has a buyer program where you only need 3% down. 300k average condo prices, that's 9k. 200 a paycheck for 2 years is about 10k. I would then purchase a condo, mortgage the rest, and continue to do that while paying my minimum debt payments for a few years while the value hopefully goes up. Being that Livermore is a good, growing town in the Bay Area, the odds of this are strong. I would then sell, take the extra money and use it as a down payment on a bigger property, and continue this until I eventually have an actual 2k square foot, 3-4 bedroom house.

He said 'this is how you get wealthy and provide for your family. You can't not take any risks or else you won't own anything until you're 40'

My questions are this:

Supposedly, you can't get a mortgage for more than 34-40% of your total income after debts. The mortgage on that property would be something like $1800, which means I would need a salary of $60k. I can see a few raises within a few years which would put me between $45 and $50, but not $60.

Also, if this program is cancelled or changes, I can't afford it and interest on my other debts are accruing

I always thought you wanted 20% down to avoid PMI, but he says you don't. You need to get in a property you own immediately and start building equity.

My credit is fairly good, I don't know the actual # but I'm pretty sure I will be at least 730, which I understand is the cutoff for the best loans.

If I were to open a savings account for this reason, where should I go and why?

Is this guy right? I just don't see how I'm supposed to be able to afford an $1800 + mortgage, $500 + in other debts, and other expenses when my current monthly take home is ~ $2,500. And even if I got to a point where that was say $3,000, and my debts + mortage would be $2,300, I COULD live off $700, easily. But a bank wouldn't give me a loan because my debt to income isn't high enough

He's worked at this company for 20 years, he's well-trusted, Allstate is a big company and wouldn't have somebody giving this kind of advice if it weren't true or beneficial

I just don't see how it can work

Thanks

Views: 150 Replies: 2 Long story short, I was able to say bye-bye to my student debt earlier this month. My monthly payment was a bit short of $500. In the short term that will go into building my emergency fund, but my question is what I can do with the cash going forward.

A few things:
-Only other debt is ~$13 K auto @ 1.49% (thanks for tipping me off to this rate, FWF!) - contemplating paying this off, but the interest rate being so low...
-I max out my 401(K) and Roth contributions annually.
-No HDHP insurance, so no HSA
-No children, so 529 doesn't seem appropriate
-No house, I am planning on leaving current city in < 1 yr

For cloud users and providers alike, security is an everyday concern, yet there are very few books covering cloud security as a main subject. This book will help address this information gap from an Information Technology solution and usage-centric view of cloud infrastructure security. The book highlights the fundamental technology components necessary to build and enable trusted clouds. Here also is an explanation of the security and compliance challenges organizations face as they migrate mission-critical
applications to the cloud, and how trusted clouds, that have their integrity rooted in hardware, can address these challenges.

This book provides:

Use cases and solution reference architectures to
enable infrastructure integrity and the creation of trusted pools leveraging
Intel Trusted Execution Technology (TXT).
Trusted geo-location management in the cloud,
enabling workload and data location compliance and boundary control usages in
the cloud.
OpenStack-based reference architecture
of tenant-controlled virtual machine and workload protection in the
cloud.
A reference design to enable secure hybrid clouds
for a cloud bursting use case, providing infrastructure visibility and control
to organizations.

Views: 17 Replies: 0 What I mean by "urban apartment" is an apartment in a building with many apartments. Some apartments are noisy, some are quiet. There are many other variables.

Me:
-I ask the realtor and sometimes knock on neighbors doors to ask if it's quiet, what the building's like, and what they think of management/landlord.
-I check under the refrigerator, oven, and under the sink to see if there's signs of pests.
-A friend of mine actually got keys to a place from realtor before renting it to show it to friends. I wish I knew how she asked for that, any ideas?

What other tips?

Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor Architecture and Tools: The Guide for Application Developers provides developers a comprehensive introduction and in-depth look at the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor architecture and the corresponding parallel data structure tools and algorithms used in the various technical computing applications for which it is suitable. It also examines the source code-level optimizations that can be performed to exploit the powerful features of the processor.

Xeon Phi is at the heart of worlds fastest commercial supercomputer, which thanks to the massively parallel computing capabilities of Intel Xeon Phi processors coupled with Xeon Phi coprocessors attained 33.86 teraflops of benchmark performance in 2013. Extracting such stellar performance in real-world applications requires a sophisticated understanding of the complex interaction among hardware components, Xeon Phi cores, and the applications running on them.

In this book, Rezaur Rahman, an Intel leader in the development of the Xeon Phi coprocessor and the optimization of its applications, presents and details all the features of Xeon Phi core design that are relevant to the practice of application developers, such as its vector units, hardware multithreading, cache hierarchy, and host-to-coprocessor communication channels. Building on this foundation, he shows developers how to solve real-world technical computing problems by selecting, deploying, and optimizing the available algorithms and data structure alternatives matching Xeon Phis hardware characteristics. From Rahmans practical descriptions and extensive code examples, the reader will gain a working knowledge of the Xeon Phi vector instruction set and the Xeon Phi microarchitecture whereby cores execute 512-bit instruction streams in parallel.

What youll learn

How to calculate theoretical Gigaflops and bandwidth numbers on the hardware and measure them through code segment
How to estimate latencies in fetching data from different cache hierarchies, including memory subsystems
How to measure PCIe bus bandwidth between the host and coprocessor
How to exploit power management and reliability features built into the hardware
How to select and manipulate the best tools to tune particular Xeon Phi applications
Algorithms and data structures for optimizing Xeon Phi performance
Case studies of real-world Xeon Phi technical computing applications in molecular dynamics and financial simulations

Who this book is for
This book is for developers wishing to design and develop technical computing applications to achieve the highest performance available in the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor hardware. It provides a solid base on the coprocessor architecture, as well as algorithm and data structure case studies for Xeon Phi coprocessor. The book may also be of interest to students and practitioners in computer engineering as a case study for massively parallel core microarchitecture of modern day processors.

Views: 237 Replies: 16 Our son is starting college in the fall. When he started high school we told him that if he could earn a solid merit scholarship (lowering our costs substantially) we would kick back a portion of that scholarship into spending money. He did.

We have had him as an authorized user on our card for a couple of years, and he is quite trustworthy. However, he will have more expenses next year and we would like to a) keep those separate so we can track them easily and b) start building his credit.

I thought I might take out a new card in my name and add him as an authorized user, but then just have him use that card so all the expenses would be his. Am I missing something? Would this be a good way to handle college expenses?

Empty lot, thinking about building TH and sell them
Added on : Monday April 14th 2014 07:00:07 AM
g: 0 Posted By: freejunkmail
Views: 74 Replies: 1 My family owns a dump in a re-developing area. The house itself has been vacant for years and is all messed up, totally worthless. The land, however, is quite sizable at approx 1 acre. My realtor says I can sell the land for $150000.

After touring around the area, I noticed there are a lot of new TH built. The asking price is in the 200's. It got me to think if I hire contractor to build a set of TH and sell them, maybe it can be much more profitable? Not sure about that particular area, but the housing market for the whole city is in good shape. I have visited many sites, but all of them talk about building single-family houses. I have yet to find a guide about building a set of TH. So the helpful FW forum springs to mind.

Here are my pros and cons analysis:
Pros: I own the land to myself. My schedule is flexible. I have good credit score. I also got some disposable cash, around 200k.
Cons: Have no experience in construction whatsoever.

So far that's all I can think of. Maybe I'm missing some important factors. My main questions are:
How many 2 story, 1600sqft, 2-3br TH will fit on the lot? I set that parameter because it seems like the popular type in the neighborhood.
How much money can I borrow from the bank, with the land being the collateral. How much more do I have to put in.
How long does such project usually take?

Since they will all be up for sale, I don't have any personal preference. Anything conventional will do. Please offer your thoughts. Thanks!

Need advice on mini-splits for an investment property

Views: 92 Replies: 2 So this may be the wrong forum to ask this in, but it is for an investment, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I'm renovating an apartment building and I was looking to outfit the apartments with mini-split heat pumps. The property is in NJ, and if there is one downside to air-air heat pumps is extracting heat in cold temperatures. The average temp in January here is 32.5 degrees, but it gets down to the single digits a few times a year, and a rare occassion a few degrees below zero. I am having the most difficult time finding any real world data on these heat pumps. The stats posted on the manufacturer sites are all over the place and I don't think they are accurate. One of the few heat pumps that does seem to have accurate data is the Mitsubishi Hyper Heat products, but they are about the most expensive mini-splits you can buy. Seeing as this is an investment, and I need to do 20 apartments, I was hoping for a more cost effective solution. Nobody understands tech stats and money better than a forum full of cheapskates like myself, so I figured this might be a good place to ask. Does anybody have any evidence on what systems will work? It's not like I can buy one and return it if it doesn't work out. I also have to wait until next winter to find out if it will work. The last thing I want is the building to have no heat on a cold day. I had an engineer do a heat loss calculation, and they range from 3.5k-7k btus at 0 degrees F.

Help me fatwallet, I've been looking for days!

Thanks in advance

4.9 out of 5 stars (27 customer reviews)

The Old Car Nut Book was designed with the idea that EVERYONE in the old car hobby has a story or two to tell. It provides a place for people to tell those stories that often dont get shared outside of a garage or with a couple of buddies from the back fender of a special ride during a car show. These are stories from regular Old Car Nuts from across America.

Contributors range from people like the average Joe at a car show to collectors and restorers that are very well known and respected in their local communities. These individuals have spent a lifetime of buying, selling and admiring old cars and while some of them were not that old when they started admiring them, both and the cars are older now!

The stories in this book tell about the contributors experiences from the time that cars first caught their eye up to their latest project and reveal the people and events that made an impact on them.

The Old Car Nut Book is about people and it gives readers an opportunity to find out more about like-minded people that they may never hear about otherwise. Some of the stories in this book are of people finding garages storing timeless classics, those barn finds that have always been sought after, or of rescuing jalopies rotting away in open fields or under overhanging trees and being used as chicken coupes. Some of those cars were restored and some only needed to be preserved. Others were discarded, once again, in favor of an easier or more desirable project. More importantly, youll read about the emotions, decisions, and adventures that went along with them.

Youll read about the first ride in a hot rod, the first time driving, and double dates in old beater cars available to young and nearly penniless teenagers many years ago, and how some of those old beaters are now priceless classics that sell for big bucks. First car stories are a few page flips away.

Many of the storytellers reveal how dreams of building cars began at an early age, starting with models, bikes, scooters, or dune buggies. Several painted cars with their mothers vacuum cleaners in the back yard. More than once, youll find the authors of these stories lament, I wish I still had that car!

Old Car Nuts come in all shapes, sizes, and varied levels of interest and involvement and for many, speed, and power were the things that mattered as they moved through life. Some raced and some watched. Some wrenched and some drove. Some raced at the track and some on the street. Some went to extremes to win and some were happy just making a run whether the outcome was the thrill of victory or the necessary agony of the occasional defeat.

A few witnessed historical moments and several played a part in building iconic cars. A handful of these guys cars made their way to private collections or museums and a lot of them wound up dismantled for the valuable parts.

Youll find that you will enjoy reading these stories over and over again and will want to share them with friends and family, as well. You'll laugh and you'll cry. You'll step right into the past with each story told. For now, dig in and enjoy!

Views: 78 Replies: 3 I live in NYC. The rental building where I've been living for the last 5 years is undergoing condo conversion. Around December of 2013 the new owners circulated a red herring offering under a non-eviction" plan, Furthermore, until December, every new lease contained early expiration clauses that required tenants to leave with 90 days notice.My lease does NOT have this clause and will end this August. Ever since December no new leases were signed or renewed.

Current management is doing everything possible to get rid of current residents within the aw. That includes excising 90 day clause, not renewing leases, and allowing current lease holders moving out earlier prior to lease expiration(which is nice).

Recently, they commenced construction work demolition of vacant units on the some floors, which creates noise and vibration during working hours, never mind smell.My apartment is a floor above it, and it adversely affects both life and work, as a few times a week Iwork from home. Unfortunately, moving out right now is out of the question.

I wonder if I can suspend my rent payments or have another legal recourse during the constructions period.

Our lives are filled with in-between times, those times when we are not quite where we would like to be (or where we thought we'd be). Dreams are on hold, prayers seem unanswered, and life can feel hard. And just when we think we have it all together, life happens again! During these times it can be difficult to see God in our situations and trust him with the future.
With empathy and wit, Debbie Alsdorf uses the book of Philippians to encourage women to lean on God, to live one day at a time, to rejoice and not to worry, and to give thanks to God in all
circumstances of life. The confidence and peace readers will gain from the perspective presented in this loving book will help them live fully in the moment, in every season of life.

Dreams That Last: Building a rock solid foundation to pursuing dreams with a family
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I3J9TMK

4.7 out of 5 stars (15 customer reviews)

Dream chasing is difficult to do. Put in the responsibility of being a spouse and a parent into the mix and some days it feels pretty impossible. In this book I will talk about chasing dreams and visions for your life while you have a family. It is important to chase those things that have been put inside of you, but not at the extent of your faith walk or the health of you and your family. This book is all about laying a firm foundation. By firming up your foundation you will be able to reach your dreams quicker and it will be much more fulfilling. The great thing about Dreams That Last is it is not some theory. It is real life failures, defeats, and victory. Step into all that God has for you by chasing your dreams the right way!

Free Kindle Book - 10 Buildings That Changed America (was $35.00)

10 Buildings that Changed America tells the stories of ten influential works of architecture, the people who imagined them, and the way these landmarks ushered in innovative cultural shifts throughout our society. The book takes readers on a journey across the country and inside these groundbreaking works of art and engineering. The buildings featured are remarkable not only for aesthetic and structural reasons, but also because their creators instilled in them a sense of purpose and personality that became reflected in an overarching sense the American identity.

Edited by the staff of WTTW, the Chicago PBS affiliate that is the most-watched public television station in the country, 10 Buildings will be released alongside the national broadcast of an hour-long special by the same name. This television event will be promoted over digital media, on-ground events, and educational initiatives in schools, and the book will be a significant component to all of these elements.

10 Buildings retells the shocking, funny, and even sad stories of how these buildings came to be. It offers a peek inside the imaginations of ten daring architects who set out to change the way we live, work, and play. From American architectural stalwarts like Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright, to modern revolutionaries like Frank Gehry and Robert Venturi, this book examines the most prominent buildings designed by the most noteworthy architects of our time.

Also profiled are Americans less noted for their architectural acumen, but no less significant for their contributions to the field. Thomas Jefferson, a self-taught architect, is profiled for designing the iconic Virginia State Capitol. Taking its inspiration from ancient Rome, America's first major public building forged a philosophical link between America and the world's earliest democracies. Similarly, Henry Ford employed Albert Kahn to design a state-of-the-art, innovative factory for Ford's groundbreaking assembly line. Reinforced concrete supported massive, open rooms without any interior dividing walls, which yields the uninterrupted space that was essential for Ford's sprawling continuous production setups. What's more, Kahn considered the needs of workers by including astonishingly modern large windows and louvers for fresh air.

The design of each of these ten buildings was completely monumental and prodigious in its time because of the architects stylistic or functional innovations. Each was also highly influential, inspiring a generation or more of architects, who in turn made a lasting impact on the American landscape. We see the legacy of architects like Mies van der Rohe or H.H. Richardson all around us: in the homes where we live, the offices where we work, our public buildings, and our houses of worship. All have been shaped in one way or another by a handful of imaginative, audacious, and sometimes even arrogant individuals throughout history whose bold ideas have been copied far and wide. 10 Buildings is the ideal collection to detail the flashes of inspiration from these architects who dared to strike out on their own and design radical new types of buildings that permanently altered our environmental and cultural landscape.

Car repair estimates required by law?
Added on : Tuesday March 25th 2014 07:00:11 AM
g: 0 Posted By: BenH
Views: 167 Replies: 9 We had a situation at my Condo building where a seeming malfunction of the parking gate caused it to close on an exiting car.
The car is that of a visitor of an owner and it scratched up a rear door.

We assume(d) that the homeowner's association is responsible for this damage, and we asked this guy to get an estimate.
He came back with an estimate over $1000 which seems a bit high (but may be reasonable).
We requested that he get at least one other estimate and now are being relayed by the unit owner (whose visitor it was) that our demands for another estimate are ridiculous and that the guy is going to file a police report if we don't give him an answer by today.

This incident happened on Saturday - so it hasn't even been one business day and this guy is threatening us already.

While the association isn't' necessarily trying to absolve itself of blame - are these requests unreasonable?

The guys stated that when he went to get another estimate he was told that he is only required by law to get one estimate. Is this true?
Also, what would filing a police report do? This guy was parked in a private lot based on authority of his friend (the owner). Isn't this purely a private matter?

This is in Chicago.

thanks.

Flawed but Faithful Finding Meaning in our Faults
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HALXNQ0

4.8 out of 5 stars (10 customer reviews)

Apostle Paul, King David, and Gideon are all some of the Bible's greatest figures, and they all had one thing in common....

...they were all flawed! That's right, these great men of God were all flawed. In fact, they all had several flaws. Why is this important? It's important because everyone- including yourself- shares this trait with these great figures. By examining their characters and how they were able to overcome their flaws in the light of God's glory, we can learn to better ourselves through our own flaws and begin building our faith stronger than ever! Check out this review!

In "Flawed but Faithful- Finding Meaning in our Faults", we examine how nobody is perfect and how this common trait can be used to spur personal growth. In this inspirational book, you will see how the Apostle Paul needed time to turn to God, how King David overcame his great sins to become a man of God, and how Gideon learned to trust his faith when he originally needed proof of God's amazing love. Many of us struggle with sins and our faith from time-to-time, and we are not alone. This important look at the Bible reminds us of that and encourages us to do better.

Beginners Guide to Fly Fishing
Rating - 5 (1 Review)

In many cases an anglers life proceeds in a series of stages. To begin with he goes in for the simplest way of catching fish because at that stage his sole outlook is to deceive as many fish as possible at each outing, irrespective of the size or lack of cunning of such fish.
Later the angler may well find that he feels an urge to try something more difficult in the way of either fishing methods or fish.
Gradually he finds that there can be immense satisfaction in catching fewer fish, but of better size, possibly through mastering a more difficult method of fishing which, when he started fishing, seemed beyond his skill.
Eventually, having tried out various methods among various fish, most enthusiasts settle down to one, or perhaps two methods and apply them to the pursuit of one or two kinds of fish.
You have of course, exceptions. There are those who are dedicated to coarse fishing with bait and who would not waste time going after trout or salmon. You have the trout or salmon Fanatics who would not fish with bait for any fish and who have no interest in coarse fishing. Then there are the few who divide their time between coarse and game fishing.
For myself I am a trout and salmon addict and nowadays I fish only with the fly. That does not mean that I do not admire those who fish for other fish in other ways. Indeed I think that the coarse fisher of the English waters is worthy of the greatest admiration as a very sporting gentleman who goes to immense trouble and expends great skill to catch fish, all of which he returns to the water. What could be more sporting than that?
In my own case I caught my first trout on fly and it was at a later date that I enjoyed flood fishing with the worm.
So with salmon-my first fish was on a fly and it was in later years that I learned spinning with the difficult centre-pin reel and then went on through almost all the spinning reels that were manufactured. Eventually I turned to the fly completely for the simple reason that I love fly fishing better than any other method I have tried.
Today, as I see it, too many beginners buy a fixed-spool reel, find it simple to work and then, gaining an impression that fly casting is difficult, they go on bait fishing or spinning even though they feel they would like to try the fly.
I am not going to say that there is anything wrong in this but I do feel that many of our younger anglers today would like to try fly fishing if only they had someone to guide them at the start.
If in this way I can help even a few anglers to share the joy and the satisfaction that fly fishing has given to me over the years I will have been amply repaid.

Move the Ball: How the Game of American Football Can Help You Achieve Your Life Goals
Rating - 5 (2 Reviews)

Move the Ball draws parallels between football and life. The two are very similiar in that the principles needed to win the game of football are the same principles you need to win the game of life. Football teaches you how to use the strategies of the game to tackle any obstacle, beat any blitz, and overcome any blindside on lifes field. No matter what the situation, football provides you with the tools necessary to scramble through a field of defenders, move the ball forward, get into the end zone, and achieve lifes goals.
Achieving lifes goals comes down to this: hard work, teamwork, discipline, and dedication. In both situations, these principles build the conviction to drive that ball into your end zone and score. Defenders on your personal field intentionally want to stop the ball and limit your movement. You must recognize these defenders exist and have a plan to outmaneuver them. This book teaches you how to recognize the blitz, adjust to the blitz, and beat the blitz.
In football and in life, the players need to define the goals, invent the playbook, and execute the plays. Move the Ball draws upon the football playbook to show you how to do this and realize your dreams. Great players dont settle for being ordinary. They have a strong belief in themselves and strive to be extraordinary. They have M.A.D. P.R.I.D.E. This book shows you how you can use the elements of M.A.D.

Views: 133 Replies: 0 Prospect & Flourish: How to Conquer the "Weakest Link" in the Sales Process (a guide for sales professionals and job seekers) byKeith F. Luscher
http://www.amazon.com/Prospect-Flourish-Conquer-Weakest-professi...

In truth, selling is anything but easy. But for professionals who understand and practice this from the heart, selling is easier! It is more naturalit is the result of building relationships.

There is plenty of information out there on how to sell. But to truly flourish, you must first prospect. Everyone has to prospect. Most people
hate to do it, and we believe that the five most common reasons why sales professionals dont prospect enough are:

They dont understand the value of what they are selling
They have a fear of rejection
They dont know what to do or how to do it
They are not motivated
They have a personal difficulty to overcome
Do any of these statements describe you? If so, you are not alone.

Indeed, it all truly comes down to sales, which cannot occur unless you keep your pipeline full. After all: The number one cause of FAILURE for sales professionals and job seekers is lack of prospects.
While you have plenty of resources and options at your disposal to learn more about sellingbut there is not enough out there to help sales people confront their fears and overcome their personal challenges when it comes to prospecting.
Until now.

Introducing the all new fourth edition of an intense, peer-reviewed, time-tested book on prospecting: Prospect & Flourish: How to Conquer the Weakest Link in the Sales Process. Originally created for use in the insurance industry, Prospect & Flourish is a comprehensive guide to business prospecting in all its forms. Readers will learn how to:

Become a networking maven, and build connections and relationships with people from across town to around the globe.
Develop centers of influenceoften the cornerstone of a healthy client portfolio.
Master the art of referrals and introductionswhich begins with knowing the difference between the two.
Establish their own trusted board of advisors, who can provide expertise, counsel, and yes, referrals.
Become properly scripted, so they will know what to will say before they say it when it comes to engaging prospects in all types of situations.
Get their foot in the door at companies where they do not have any prior connection (our secret: Use a Wedge).
Learn about networking and referral groups, and how to make the best use of them not just for yourself, but for your colleagues as well.
Learn to properly use social media, such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter to engage prospects by delivering value while building a professional brand.
And much, much more. This all new fourth edition contains nearly 300 pages worth of tips, how-to strategies and resources that will enable you to Prospect & Flourish continuously every day!

What is Your Return on Investment (ROI) in Prospect & Flourish?
Indeed, the return on your investment is fairly simple to calculate. While guarantees in many professional industries are difficult to extend, I guarantee this: if you adopt just a few approaches that you will learn throughout this book, you WILL see results.
If what you learn enables you to create at least one new client relationship, your investment has just paid for itself many times over.
Further: Look beyond your first paycheck for that single new client or job. What do you think will be the lifetime value of that one relationship? How much might you earn through serving that single entity over the lifetime of your career?
The payback on your investment grows exponentially.

Need help with Condo Decision
Added on : Tuesday February 25th 2014 03:00:09 PM
g: 0 Posted By: kevb81
Views: 32 Replies: 0 As far as background, I am a 32-year old single male looking at buying a place in Jersey City due to how close it is to the city and how much I like the area (I rented there for a few years). I am trying to evaluate and make a smart decision - I am debating between 2 condos below.

One unit is right off a nice park park in a brownstone complex. The unit is good shape except the kitchen which has granite and updated cabinets but still has older looking (white) appliances (electric stove) and would be nicer if opened up so its not enclosed. The rest has some exposed brick accents, completely renovated bathroom with nice finishes, crown moldings. No washer dryer in unit (card system in the building) or real amenities. Right near the park but not directly over it so it shouldn't be too noisy. Parking is uncovered and part of the maintenance fee . The walk to the train is 14 - 15 minutes per google maps. $2110/mo including mortgage, hoas, taxes, etc ($383k)

The other unit that I was debating is in a more modern building (doorman, nice lobby and a common Courtyard
). 7 minute walk to the train in an arguably more happening area (more midrise condos). Open kitchen and nice finishes/fixtures. 2nd floor so not a ton of light despite being in a midrise building. No parking. I would have to rent for about $200/month in the building, so my total cost is about 3,020/month. ($460k)

Both are about 750 sf, 1bed/1ba. I am looking at ideally staying there for about 5 years when I settle down and need more space. My guy says that the appreciation may be better in the more expensive unit but I have never been one to bank on that.

Given that its a "starter home" should I get something more luxurious or something simpler but nice at good cost savings. I am grappling with it :/

I've read that initially I would need to co-sign using my personal fico in order for my business to qualify for a credit card. If so, how will that affect my personal fico and how long (with regular use/ 30% steady balance) would it take before I could remove myself (personal) from the debt liabilities of the business?
I hope I didn't confuse you.
And advice you could give would be very appreciated.

Views: 129 Replies: 2 Hello everyone,

I've run into an issue between my mortgage holder and my local tax collector. Quick summary here and longer version below.

Quick version - Mortgage company says they sent $1734 to tax collector for school tax. Taxes are in reality $1434 since I have received Homestead exemption and 2% discount this year (2013). I request difference from tax collector. She responds that mortgage company did not send extra, they had sent the correct amount and the reason I am seeing the issue is that the mortgage company has crossed two names in their system. The tax collector states there is nothing she can do to get the mortgage company to fix their records. I explained to her that if this is not resolved by this coming Monday at 8 AM, I am taking legal action to get this matter resolved. I have emails from her stating that the issue is not on her end but in the system of the mortgage company.

Long version - Back in December when my mortgage company did my yearly escrow analysis, they noted that I was $143 short and that I could either pay up now or I could roll it into the next 12 payments. I sent in the check. A few weeks later, I receive a delinquent tax notice for my school taxes. In getting proof from my mortgage company that the taxes were paid, I noticed that the amounts were about $300 off. I then found out that the tax collector is not doing her job well enough and that just about everyone in my town has received these notices. The town performs an audit and finds checks from four months ago totaling several hundreds of thousands of dollars just sitting un-cashed in her office. I finally reached someone at the borough building and they confirm that yes I am paid in full, but at the $1434 amount not the higher amount. Mortgage company sends me a letter stating that they paid the $1734 amount and have not received any Cash Back.
Finally, I contacted both the business manager at the school district and also the tax administrator at the county level and they both agree that I have overpaid and that I am due a $300 credit on my taxes. They state that I need to recover this money from the tax collector. I first tried calling and received no response. I then tried email and received a response. She states that my mortgage company has my information confused with another person and that I am paid for the correct amount and the mortgage company did not send her a check for too much. She cannot tell me who she talked to at the mortgage company that helped her come to this conclusion. I explain to her that the mortgage company had sent the payment by magnetic tape disbursement (their words) and not by check. She then responds she does not accept anything except checks, I then questioned how she is showing anything on my account then?

I am wondering how I go about getting back the overpayment on my taxes. I have done everything I can on my end to move this process along but she seems to not be cooperating. I have no problems taking this to small claims court, or is this something I should let a lawyer handle?

Please let me know if any more information is needed.

Commercial Rezoning Across The Street!
Added on : Thursday February 20th 2014 11:00:14 AM

Views: 179 Replies: 7 Hi all,

So, my last thread was all about my debt related to a great foreclosure purchase I made in the last 6 months. I've settled in the home and everything is going fairly well. I currently live in a neighborhood which has an adjacent through street that gets a pretty good amount of traffic, particularly during rush hours. Everything around me is zoned for single-family properties but there are some small offices and apartments 1 mile down the same road I live on. Directly across the street from my house, there is an old house sitting on about 3 acres which has been for sale for about 2 years with no activity to my knowledge. Yesterday morning, I awoke to a sign in their front yard indicating that there is a public hearing to move the site's zoning to O-1 (arterial office). I looked at the local zoning codes and the only thing I can find is C-1, which is neighborhood commercial.

Anyone have any experience with businesses moving in across the street from their house? I have a bad gut feeling about it but on the flipside, the property is currently listed for 1.25 million; I bought my house fo 35k (valued roughly at 100k or so at the moment). Considering the high price of the commercial property, any chance my value will go up or is this a killshot on my house's value? Clearly no one can predict what will go in there but I'm really out of grasp at how certain types of buildings affect your house's value. Furthermore, perhaps my value would go up as a commercial property if one were to be built across from me?

Calling all speculators! :-p

Adding an addition onto my house - Questions. Am I going about this right?
Added on : Wednesday February 19th 2014 03:00:11 AM
g: 0 Posted By: NonReturnable
Views: 104 Replies: 4 I own a 1300 sqft 3 bedroom, 1 bath house.

I would like to add an extra bathroom onto the master bedroom.

2 reasons - I am sick of walking downstairs in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. Also, we would like to move to a larger house closer to my job in 3-4 years or so (waiting for wife to finish college and get a secure job). I have been watching the houses for sale in my area for the last several years, and its seems like the houses that sit on the market and never sell have 2 things in common - single bathrooms and tired, old looking kitchens. I've updated my kitchen with tile floors, new appliances and new counter tops.

My house has 2 floors. The second story is not the full width (front to back) as the 1st floor. The only thing upstairs is my office and our master bedroom. These are over top of my living room and kids' room. I would like to add a 2nd floor over the back part of my house (dining room and kitchen).

I originally was going to just do a 15 foot wide dormer, however I have had a General Contractor come out to give me an estimate, and said it would be much easier and cheaper to build the addition to the existing corners of the back of the house, as it would not require as much reinforcing if he used the existing corners. This would not just give me a bathroom, but if we go this route, it would give me enough space for a small 4th bedroom, master bath and walk in closet. This would easily increase the value of my house by 25%.

So, here is where I am at -
I have several GC's coming to give me estimates on framing in the addition, putting a roof on it, and siding the outside. That is all I want. I can do everything on the inside. I have drywalled several other rooms (used to be plaster), I have experience doing electrical work, and I have a friend that is a plumber that said he would help me with adding the drain and water lines. In my county I do not have to get permits. I know this is weird, but they only require permits for anything that is a 3 family building or larger (eg, apartment). I've confirmed this by calling the courthouse and asking.

I went to Menards and priced everything I would need for the bathroom. It came to right around $1000 for a shower stall (I want a 3/4 bath), toilet, sink, plumbing materials, etc. I don't plan on making this super upscale, just using contractor grade materials, as in my area there isn't enough market demand for these items. Drywall and electrical materials will run me around $400. Insulation about $150.

I had an HVAC unit installed 6 years ago, and to be honest, I got kinda screwed. Its not powerful enough. When it gets in the upper 90s, it can only keep the house around 75, and the 2nd floor gets into the 80s, so we use a window AC in the master bedroom. I plan to reroute the return that goes to the 2nd floor to pull from my living room, and the forced air line to a bedroom that currently doesn't have a forced air line. I'll install a 2-ton Mitsubishi mini-split HVAC unit to cool and heat the 2nd floor. These run around $700.

I plan to take these numbers (after I sort through everything and make a nice spreadsheet) along with 3 estimates from different contractors on framing in the addition to my bank, to attempt to refinance my house and get a home equity loan to pay for the addition.

I paid $75k for the house in 2008.
I currently owe $66k on a 30 year mortgage.

Since I purchased the home, I have put about 20k into upgrades (laminate floors, HVAC - it only had electric baseboards when I moved in, split up a massive 15x20 laundry room to make a small utility hallway and a 3rd bedroom, etc)

I would like to get the house re-appraised to take the upgrades I've done into account, however I will have to pay for it because the bank will only do drive-by appraisals, not one where the guy comes in.

Should I pay for the appraisal before or after I talk to the bank?

Basically I want to go to the bank and say:
I owe 66k
The house is worth $X (somewhere in the mid $80s most likely, based on what my neighbor who is a Realtor says)
I want to do the following upgrades that will cost $Y and afterwards the house will be worth $Z.

So, how does this work? How can I get a loan on the equity between what I owe and what the house is worth?

What is the best way to go about this?

I would appreciate any advice that will get me moving in the right diection.

Thanks guys!

TL;DR - Want to build an addition on my house. Talk to me about how to best approach a home equity loan.

A standalone alpha version of DayZ is already being sold for $30 on Steam.Currently I think the Mod is still better, and free!

After you install and load ARMA 2 and ARMA OA once each, install Play withSIXto install the @DayZ mod, keep it up to date, and search servers. The DayZ mod you should try first is the original "@DayZ Original DayZ Zombie RPG" by dayzdevteam. Once you have tried the original, I recommend DayZ Epoch.DayZ Epoch can also be installed withSIX and expands upon the game with more MMO features like crafting and base building.

Financing Rural Land (with New Construction Housing On It)
Added on : Tuesday February 04th 2014 11:00:19 AM
g: 0 Posted By: ltcm
Views: 152 Replies: 4 I'm considering buying a piece of property and building a house on it. I've narrowed down the area (within 15 minutes of where I currently live, about 45-50 minutes from the downtown of a major city), but have not picked out a specific lot yet. The properties I'm looking at range from $150-$300K for 35-70 acres, with the more expensive properties including wells, power to the property already, etc. The main thing I'm interested in is how to finance this project. I've read about construction loans and land loans, but wonder whether something like this might not fit either category exactly. My questions are:

1. What type of loan should I be looking for in this situation? How much of an increased interest rate/increased down payment should I expect?
2. What if I don't build a house right away? One idea I've been investigating is to buy the land and build a nice barn with an apartment above it first, while saving to build a "main" house within 2-3 years. If I spent $100K on the barn/apartment, would I be able to get a loan for the full land amount + barn, or would the appraisal process/lack of a main structure kill this idea? The barn + apartment is definitely part of the plan in the long-term anyway due to family members who will likely live there one day, so it wouldn't be an unnecessary expense, just a reversal in the typical order of building.
3. Finally, what about just financing the land and putting a trailer on there for 1-2 years until I save up more money for the house? I'm not too familiar with loans for raw land, so I'd love to hear people's experiences about that as well.

And just general thoughts that will provide me additional avenues to research -- thanks!

Views: 172 Replies: 0 When one of her students isn't picked up after school, Casey Sweet meets Blake Sullivan under the worst possible circumstances; he's so sick he doesn't even realize she's brought his nephew home! After a rocky start -- and after Casey assures her student's handsome uncle that she has no hidden agenda in helping him -- the two begin spending time together. Their reason for doing so is building a class booth for a Valentine's Day festival, but Casey finds herself wondering if Blake doesn't want more than just her friendship. Just about the time she allows herself to think there might be a chance for something between them, Blake's sexy ex-fiancee shows up! Has Cupid missed the mark this Valentine's Day?

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is a novella, not a full-length novel. It's also a Christian romance. One might even say it's predictable, but happily-ever-afters sometimes are, aren't they? If you're looking for a sweet, sometimes humorous Christian romance, you're in the right place, and I hope you'll enjoy my little Valentine.

Bank Of England To Withdraw Houblon 50 Note

"The Bank of England is withdrawing 63 million 50 notes from circulation following a review of the note's ability to withstand fraud.

The note in question bears the portrait of the first bank governor, Sir John Houblon, who took office in 1694.

From April 30, only the 50 note which celebrates the 18th century business partnership of entrepreneur Matthew Boulton and engineer James Watt, who helped forge the Industrial Revolution, will hold legal tender status.

Victoria Cleland, head of notes division at the bank, said: "If you have any Houblon50 notes, it's best to spend, deposit or exchange them before April 30."

Around 224 million 50 notes worth 11.2bn are in circulation in total.

The bank said that from May onwards, retailers were unlikely to accept the Houblon notes as payment, but most banks and building societies would still allow customers to deposit them into their accounts.Barclays, NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), Ulster Bank and the Post Office have agreed to exchange the older-style 50 notes for both customers and non-customers up to the value of 200 until October 30."

Term in the UK - Fatwallet strategies while living abroad?
Added on : Wednesday January 15th 2014 03:00:05 AM
g: 0 Posted By: sultorn
Views: 47 Replies: 0 I'm on exchange in London as part of my graduate program. I'll be attended courses at one of the graduate schools here until the end of March (might be too short a period of time).

Would love to hear others' efforts at trying domestic fatwallet strategies abroad, particularly in the UK. The thought struck me when I searched for UK credit cards and saw offers of 0% BTs for 30mo (http://www.moneysupermarket.com/credit-cards/balance-transfer/). From what I understand, the school provides necessary documentation for opening up a bank account but I'm not sure what's all required for getting the best offers.

Does anyone have any experience in building/applying for credit abroad? How about bank accounts? Has anyone tried to make the most of their time abroad financially as a visitor/student (ie, not through employment/tax savings)?

Here are a couple other threads I found through searching (I excluded 5+ yr old ones and those without responses):

UK Credit card deals and recommendations(2010) -- sounds like an AMEX transfer is a good way to start building credit?

British Airways - 100k Points(2013) -- recent BA AMEX card offer for 100k miles. Requires an income of 30k GBP or more + British bank account + permanent residence.

List of Credit Cards with no Foreign Transaction / Currency Fee(2012) -- while we're at it. I applied for Barclays Arrival before I left the states.

Thanks for the tips everyone!

Water Damage from a Vacant Neighboring Condo Unit
Added on : Wednesday January 08th 2014 06:00:08 PM
g: 0 Posted By: Porqin
Views: 116 Replies: 0 Greetings, FWF:

Quick scenario, my friend encountered this evening:
- Lives in a 2-story condo building (he is renting), with units on both the first and second floor
- Neighbor's 2nd story vacant condo had a pipe burst, and water gushed into the first floor (garage area of friend)
- Water department was called to turn off water to the vacant unit

At this point, it isn't entirely clear the extent of the damage.

Now, the question is which insurance covers this situation for damage to:
A. Friend's personal belongings
B. Damage to friend's unit (structure)
C. Cleanup

1. Friend's renter's insurance
2. Friend's landlord's home owner's insurance
3. Vacant condo's home owner's insurance
4. HOA insurance

Thanks for your input.

4.1 out of 5 stars (42 customer reviews)

The Soup and Bread Cookbookaims to explore the social role of soup through a collection of terrific, affordable recipes from food activists, chefs, and others. This quirky exploration of the cultural history of soup as a tool for both building community and fostering social justice is the result of a brainstorm: eating your way through a pot of soup day after day can get boring why not get together and swap some with friends? Now neighbors across the country are getting together regularly for home-based "soup swaps." In Chicago, the arts collective InCUBATE uses soup as a microfunding tool. And of course, soup can be a political statement: the radical volunteers of Food Not Bombs have been providing free vegetarian soup to the hungry as a protest against war and social injustice since 1980. These are just a few examples of the stories Bayne wraps around a collection of delicious, accessible, and tested soup recipes.

HELOC for new construction??
Added on : Thursday December 26th 2013 06:00:08 AM
g: 0 Posted By: palongee1
Views: 47 Replies: 0 Hi everyone, ive searched hi and low for some answers pertaining to my situation and so far have found little help, hopefully someone here can give me some direction, here goes
I own a property outright, several acres zoned agricultural. The property was appraised for 500k in 2009.The property has a old home and outbuildings (barns, shops, etc) The old home was built in the 1880's whichwas apparent once I started taking a hard look at the structure underneath the home.From the exterior and interior it looks fine. My original plan was a complete rennovation but the costs are so excessive that im leaning toward building new on the same parcel then removing the old house once the new home is finished. I have looked into a construction loan which requires a contractor and a pretty shorttimline. I have access to all the sub contractors I would need to contract the build myself as well as doing some of the work myself. My concerrns are if I were approved for a heloc and built the new house then removed the old house could I potentially be in a trouble with the bank? The new home would obviously be bigger and worth much more then the existing structure, im just concerned that I could be insome kind of violation of the loan?My reasons for wanting to build this way are 1, I dont want to pay a contractor to do what I can do. Also,my definition of "good enough" is much different then what some of these contractors ideas are. 2, I dont want to be on a stringent timeline to complete the build, I have certain guys I would like to use for certain subs as well as I would like to do some of the work on my own. My biggest issue is financing. Im looking to use some cash but id need to borrow appx 165k to get the project done. Its a unique situation i know, any help anyone could give me would be much appreciated! Thanks for your time! Mike

Multifamily apartment fractional investing
Added on : Friday December 20th 2013 11:00:09 AM

Views: 128 Replies: 2 Hi,

I was offered an opportunity to invest into purchase of a large apartment complex (200 alts). The company is 37th Parallel. It appears they are a syndicator - pool investor money together to purchase and manage apartment building, and at some point refinance to take the cash out towards purchasing another one.

As an investor, I submit a minimal investment amount and will receive quarterly distributions. Does anyone have an experience either in multifamily investment with syndicator or with this particular company to reflect on their experience? I am going to do my due diligence of course, but can you recommend any to pay attention to particular points or ask certain questions? Thank you

The Elements: A Visual Exploration (for iPad): Free

Now compatible with iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch 5th Generation.

Of all the periodic table apps, there is only one which Stephen Fry described as Alone worth the price of an iPad!.
The Elements: A Visual Exploration is not just a reference app, it is a rich and engaging love story of the periodic table, told in words and pictures, and allowing you to experience the beauty and fascination of the building blocks of our universe in a way you've never seen before. The Elements is based on the internationally best-selling hard cover edition of The Elements by Theodore Gray, Popular Science Magazines Gray Matter columnist. But it goes way beyond what is possible on paper. You start off at a living periodic table where every element is shown with a smoothly rotating sample. To read about tin, tap the tin soldier. To read about gold, tap the gold nugget.
Immediately you see the sample filling nearly the entire screen, photographed to razor sharpness and rotating around a complete circle in front of your eyes. Beside that is a column of facts and figures, each of which can be tapped to bring up rich detail and current information through the embedded Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine. Go to each element's second page and you find a fascinating story about the element, surrounded by carefully photographed objects representing it.
Every one of these objects, well over 500 in total, is a freely rotatable, live object that you can examine from all sides and pinch zoom to see in unprecedented detail. Touch the element name at the top of the page and you can see that elements name in over a dozen different languages. Choose one and youll find that the entire book, stories, captions and all, switches to that language: The Elements includes both the full English original text and over a dozen full translations. Pinch-zoom or tap any object to bring it up full screen, where you can split into a pair of stereo 3D images. Using inexpensive 3D glasses you can see all 500 objects pop off the screen in 3D, and you can spin the objects, in 3D, with the touch of a finger. You cant get much more virtually real than that. If you had a bad experience with chem class in school, this book is the antidote. If you or someone you know is afraid chemistry will be their most boring subject, this book will show them that theres a lot more to the periodic table than a bunch of numbers and letters.

Views: 32 Replies: 0 Sorry for long story, tried to make it as short as possible but it is still too long. Just need your opinion what to do, if anything to do. Thank you.

Im Russian-American, naturalized citizen, speak Russian at home. Wasone of 12IT technicians,the rest of the guys are Americans.In July Ive complained to our new CIO (ex-military from Cold War time, chief warrant officer, served 12 years) about porn and violent behavior of one of the company owners (700 people law firm with large internal IT; I dont care about porn, have seen tons of it at work, but in that case a senior partner was just driving me crazy pointing on his desktop XXX files, screaming and beating the desk why, why they keep getting rearranged!!!). Anyway, I email and tell CIO, he investigates, tells me that Im right, did a good thing to complain and that he told the guy to behave properly and to remove porn. He asked me if Ive told anybody else. I tell him 2 names of IT folks (another tech and our senior tech). Next day Im told not to work on that PC, it is too much for you to handle, then me and 2 guys Ive told about porn get Final warning to improve work performance" within 120 days (bogus reasons, never had any warnings, CIO has put some crap in it Ive never did, like reinstalling programs trying to fix them, bad customer service not a single example , did the same to the other guys). Im probably the best tech of the firm at that time tons of positive feedback from users, everybody likes me, no kidding here that idiot with porn was the only issue Ive had for 8 years . I ask CIO WTF, he points on his army medals on the wall and tells me that he wants me to succeed, that he has trained hundreds of folks in the military and will do it to me. OK, shit happens, whatever.
I work like never before (Alabama, single income with a wife a 3 yo, scared to lose my job), run around pleasing everybody, positive feedback skyrockets to the point senior partners call CIO and email the whole firm saying how good Im.
One day had to work on printer of the secretary of the guy who had porn (Ive complained about), went to his PC to print and saw all the porn still there. Whatever.Sometime in August Ive emailed HR about new gun law in Alabama (do they need a copy of concealed carry or not if we keep it in cars in closed container), never ever said that I have a pistol in my car just asked what their policy is. 2 weeks later CIO comes to department and says in front of other folks that he will be the first one I will shoot in the office one day. No kidding. WTF I say. Why? Russians have serious weapons in their possession. Dung, OK, whatever.In September I bring him his new phone and he asks me how Im doing. Working like crazy, pleasing everybody. Yeah, he replies, I get emails about you every day. But you know what, it is not about customer service, it is about tech skills. OK, whatever.In October an attorney Ive upgraded with Windows 7 months ago (finally, he was on broken XP and didnt want to move), calls CIO and screams on him because his PC drives him crazy and he never wanted Windows 7. Attorney is a patent guy, often mad, but actually a very nice person did that crap many times, but never so loud I get a call for him, run, he says that all is good, he called CIO to bitch for no reason, Helpdesk was slow to unlock a document, he is sorry. OK, whatever.
I email my manager (new guy who doesnt know the attorney) that attorney is always like that, he is frustrated with his patenting crap, gets mad often, but it goes away quickly. Say I will deal with it.
Next day talk to that patent attorney again. He says my CIO is sending bad emails about me, he is so sorry, can talk to CIO to tell him that it is not my fault and not to use it against me. WTF?Later on that day I work on IT committee leader PC (CIOs boss). Outlook issues nobody can fix, told by Microsoft girl to check his emails blah-blah-blah see my email first thing. CIO forwarded it to CEO, IT Board guy etc that basically Im an idiot cant write emails properly, dont have skills, frustrate users. Dont see a single email about anybody else, only about me. I say WTF, it is too much.10/4/13 I go to CEO and tell the Man that CIO is hostile towards me without any reason. Sends emails with lies about me, gives bogus final warnings, says he gets tons of emails from happy users but still I dont have freaking skills, our system shows I have tons of positive feedback, said in front of all that I will kill him first one day.
CEO listens and says that the only resolution he sees is for me to talk to CIO like man to man. He says he sees cultural differences, he will arrange meeting. He says CIO is like that because he (CEO) is giving him hard time. Crap, whatever.10/8/13 I print that email for meeting. Microsoft girl is there - a witness from HR CIO says. Cant talk like man to man, CIO refuses to talk until I tell him how I found about the email. An attorney told me about it. No, I called everybody Ive emailed it to, they didnt tell you. Did you see it on a computer while you were working on it? Sure thing I did. I printed it for you. He is happy, tells me he sent it because there were 6 follow up after upgrade, nobody else has so many, I dont have skills, most of the positive feedback I have is solicited blah-blah-blah. Tells me to go and check tickets. I tell him that everybody except him likes me, how the hell I can solicit 100+ feedback from users when some of them I barely know, that I cant sleep and eat because of all his lies and I just dont understand why he is throwing me under the bus like a dog. I was a little bit loud and was crying, yes, but I didnt call him names or anything of that sort. Like I said Microsoft girl was there all the time.10/9/13 I check the tickets of the patent guy. 6 calls, none is my problem. Web site didnt work, Java didnt run, document was locked crap like that. Talk to managers (nice people, were always saying Im their best tech) they also say there was nothing wrong I did. I put everything into I nice email and email CIO the results. hey, sorry blah-blah-blah, here are the results, nothing wrong I did, Sir.
2 hours later Im called to HR, CIO smiles to me and CEO tells me to be terminated or to resign. It is bad to print emails without permission and we just cant work together with CIO. If resign, they will keep me on payroll for another 3 weeks and I will be with the Firm, but dont need to come to work. Whatever, screw them, I resign.
No threats, no firearms on me or in my car, no violence, never had a single complaint of that sort, never arrested, didnt have a freaking traffic ticket. They bring my things from IT and an armed security takes me to my car with a facility manager. Always in a case like that it is just a manager, but for me they arranged an armed security. For 8 years I have never seen an armed security in our building, nobody else did, Ive checked later on. We go to the car, security is holding his hand on his handgun, and the whole freaking firm (10 floors) stares through the windows to see what is going on before I drive away. Im not kidding, it was the most humiliating thing I ever had in my life. 8 years over there, zero complaints, and they called a freaking guy with a revolver.
Ive got 45 very nice feedbacks on LinkedIn after Ive left, including from company owners (freaking CIO himself only has got 10 in his life). People I still talk to say they were in shock to see what has happened.
Ive send a letter to HR 2 weeks ago about CIO (mentioned porn and him saying I will start killing people one day, asked to investigate), CEO called me and said that they will investigate it internally since Im no longer with the Firm, and they will not inform me on the results. They cant hire me back because CIO manages IT and it is his decision blah-blah-blah.
Called an attorney I found in yellow book for a free consultation, but he said he doesnt deal with voluntary resignations and advised to contact Equal employment opportunity commission. Thats basically my story.
Thank you all for reading it

Useful life of mid and high rise condos?
Added on : Thursday December 19th 2013 04:00:11 PM
g: 0 Posted By: pj737
Views: 45 Replies: 0 A friend of mine that owns a condo in Honolulu, Hawaii may possibly receive a $60,000+ special assessment from his building's association because of necessary concrete spall repair and sewer/drain line rehabilitation. Because neither of these expenses were included in the building's Reserve Study, the HOA can forcibly pass these costs on to the owners. There is currently a lawsuit between several owners and the HOA as, understandably, many owners cannot afford this one-time upfront cost. They are currently seeking financing for these repairs. The building is just over 45 years of age and the HOA is claiming the cast iron pipe in the building has exceeded its design expectancy of 40 years and needs replacement. Others have contended that cast iron pipe should last longer... 50-60 years, and that repairs should be made instead of complete replacement. My friend is perplexed that the replacement cost of this piping (which runs throughout the entire building; some of which is only accessible by cutting massive slabs of rebar reinforced concrete) was never included in the Reserve Study. Most owners had no idea that this replacement was (soon) required and that it could be so expensive. In addition to the new piping, there is significant spall damage resulting from leaking pipes and weather-related degradation. For those that don't know what spalling is, it's when rebar inside of concrete corrodes and subsequently expands because of contact to moisture. The expansion of the degrading steel is often placed close to the surface of the concrete so it pushes the concrete out causing it to crack, crumble and fall. All concrete is porous so if it's not sealed and encapsulated to moisture, the rebar will eventually corrode, expand and crack the concrete compromising the structural integrity of the member. In other words, all concrete will eventually fail. This building is located in Honolulu, Hawaii and is in close proximity to the ocean; the high humidity of the tropics, consistent rainfall and salt content in the air all contribute to a more rapid degradation of steel and concrete than other parts of the nation.

So this got me thinking, are maintenance fees too low to truly sustain the ultra-long-term maintenance and rehabilitation requirements of condos? I know a lot of owners of condos gloat about how they don't have to worry about costs associated with single family home repair because it's covered in the monthly HOA dues but it's clear that reserve studies (which determine the replacement cost and life cycle of all the building's components) does not include EVERYTHING. I sit on two condo boards (in Honolulu, Hawaii), both of which are roughly 40 years old, and the reserve studies for both buildings do not show any reserves for future spall repair or water, sewer and drainage piping replacement. There is nothing for curtain wall window replacement, handrail replacement and upgrades for electrical wiring (though they do for most electrical components like transformers, switch-gear etc). They include virtually all replaceable items like marble cladding on certain architectural walls (which still look perfect 40 years later) but nothing to replace pipes that inevitably will fall apart over time. It's appalling. Then I started thinking about the structure itself... what is the life cycle or "useful life" of a mid or high rise building? I see building implosions of all types on the internet/news all the time. I've seen dozens of large concrete buildings being demolished here in Honolulu too... some of which are only about 50 years old. I understand that many of these buildings are torn down because they are technologically obsolete, don't meet new code/safety requirements or the building that sits on the land isn't serving the "best use" of the land. But in a condo where there are dozens or hundreds of owners, what happens? Eventually the ENTIRE building has to be torn down, right? Eventually the long term maintenance costs will exceed the cost to finance and erect a new modern structure that serves the needs and requirements of a modern society. Then there is the argument that some buildings last hundreds of years. That's true... but these are usually buildings that have cultural or historical significance... and a ton of money is usually injected into preserving these unique buildings through private, municipal, state and federal entities via taxpayers, public/private donations, trusts or otherwise. Owners of regular buildings (like the type that 98% of people reside in) would never have that kind of money to constantly rehabilitate to be safe and at least moderately technologically acceptable. In a nutshell, it would be impossible to preserve a decent standard of living and safety for residents with controlled costs in a multi-century old structure.

The economic life of most mid to high rise steel or steel-reinforced concrete buildings is 80-100 years (according to what I've read in studies). Wouldn't that suggest that your investment would mostly vaporize at some point? When you buy a single family house, the house (brand new) is usually worth about a third of what you pay... and the land about two-thirds (i.e. a new $1M house would be valued at about $330K for the structure and $660K for the land). Now this is an average for small homes in town on small lots (5,000 sf)... I'm sure that differs in other parts of Oahu (and definitely in other parts of the nation) but the land value to house structure value is definitely much more favorable than a condo. Here in Hawaii an average 1,400 sf condo in the urban core goes for about $1M. The same sized house in town goes for about the same but you own about 5,000 SF of land. In the condo you would own about 400 SF of land or about 8% of the SFH land. The land under the condo averages about $250 SF (which is about double of what the land under a SFH would go for) so of your $1M investment, only 10% of that ($100k) is in land. The rest is arguably in a depreciating asset (which according to my unscientific guess will eventually be worthless). Maintenance fees mostly prevent that depreciation by injecting money into constant upgrades and repairs. But at what point is the building obsolete whether structurally, technologically or safety-wise?

Sorry for the long post but I know there are quite a few real estate investment people on FW. Always good to hear what others think. Sorry I didn't post this in the RE thread... I figured this topic should deserve its own. Please don't flame me if my assumption is wrong!

Views: 138 Replies: 4 I hope this is the right place to post this.I have what I feel is a very strong idea for an app/site.Technology-wise, there is nothing ground breaking about what I want built. But, the overall business idea itself has not been donehow I want to do this.I am meeting next week with a think tank group. They collaborate and work on projects under the community entity of this think tank business. They sometimes work for hire, sometimes they invest their time for a % ownership, sometimes they get investors involved.I asked the owner about signing my NDA, and he said it was possible, not out of the question, but difficult because he can't sign anything that would interfere with other projects he is working on. He said he had to know specifically what IP I wanted to protect in the NDA before he could sign.He said everyone in his organization has signed an honor code which prevents them from taking anyones ideas.As I've thought about this more, and tried to drill down to what is unique enough to protect its gotten difficult. I'm not sure what I have to protect IP wise. People have made apps, people have registered accounts on apps. People have posted offerings on apps, people have communicated between each other on apps. So, I'm not sure what my IP is, other than the summation of all that together for my specific purpose, along with well done marketing to make it go.Am I being way too lax on this? Can I do a simple site schematic writeup on some letterhead and ask him to sign that this specific document is my idea? I have an NDA doc created. It basically says anyone who signs cannot work on any idea discussed. But that was his point. Its vague to say, what was discussed might apply to a piece of something else he is working on, which might infringe on another idea he is working on.Thoughts?I really feel like building the site/app is not earth shattering in and of itself. It'll be the marketing and operating the business that will define its success or failure. So, that makes me think I'm being overly cautious. This isn't the next Twitter. But it could be the next "stronginternet business".

The small town of Parrish Springs is not ready for Matilda Honeycutt. A strange older woman with scraggly gray hair and jewelry that jangles as she walks, Matilda is certainly not the most likely person to buy the old Barton Building on the town's quaint main street. When it becomes apparent that her new shop doesn't fit the expectations of Parrish Springs residents, a brouhaha erupts. After all, Christmas is approaching, and the last thing the town needs is a junky shop run by someone who looks and acts like a gypsy. But as townsfolk venture into the strange store, they discover that old memories can bring new life and healing.

Once again, Melody Carlson delivers a Christmas story that will touch hearts and delight the senses. Sure to be a classic, The Christmas Shoppe is filled with the special magic the best Christmas stories share--that intangible mixture of nostalgia, joy, and a little bit of magic.

Life Can Be a Miracle [Kindle Edition]
http://www.amazon.com/Life-Can-Miracle-Ivinela-Samuilova-ebook/d...

'Life Can Be a Miracle' is possibly the most unexpected course in miracles (in a novel) you may encounter. The book comes from one of the enigmatic parts of the world: the Balkans, and particularly from the oldest and rather mysterious country there, Bulgaria. Like the unique asymmetric rhythms of Bulgarian music that astonish Western even temperament, the approach to reality this book offers may shake up your structured, algorithmic and perhaps boring or ineffective approach to life. 'Life Can Be a Miracle' brings an unusually optimistic breath of fresh air, as warm as a Balkan summer, to our way of perceiving reality. This is the right book for readers who want a fresh take on reality, who do not take themselves too seriously and who would like to explore new and different ways to relate to themselves and to the world -- not as alien and hostile subjects, but rather as allies who share and exchange extraordinary resources in surprising ways. How can a tiny piece of blue cheese lead you to your ultimate life purpose, removing all the barriers you have built against a joyful, fulfilled, miraculous life? This and many more incredibly fun and easy-to-apply techniques can be found in this fascinating, original and inspiring novel.

The Universe Doesn't Give a Flying F***k About You (Epic series) [Kindle Edition]
http://www.amazon.com/Universe-Doesnt-Flying-About-ebook/dp/B005...

If you walk around every day on eggshells, nervous about making a mistake or looking stupid, then you should read this.
If you have a "next big thing" in mind you want to do because you know it will be awesome (starting the business, making the big move, launching the nonprofit, writing the book) but are afraid of doing what it would take to make that thing happen, then you should read this.
The universe is very big. You are very small. In fact, you're so small and so insignificant in the big picture that you don't even register to the eye of the cosmos. The universe was here before you were born and will be here long after you're gone, and your life is but a blip on its vast, vast radar. If your life is to matter, it's not going to matter to the universe. It's up to you make your life matter in the only way you can: by doing things that make a difference to you, to those around you, and to those whose lives you touch. Time is short. You have exactly NOW to do whatever it is you're here to do, or to let the inexorable passage of hours and days and years kill your potential like fruit left to die on a vine.
The universe doesnt hate you, but it doesnt love you, either. Youre just an atom in its infinite workings. The universe doesnt care if you live, die, suffer, or thrive. Whatever your life here will mean is up to you.
Stop worrying so much about what others think and start being who you're supposed to be. It's time to do some epic shit.

4.5 out of 5 stars with 107 reviews

Miranda Woodruff has it all. At least, that's how it looks when she's starring in her homebuilding television show, From the Ground Up. So when her network begins to talk about making cuts, she'll do anything to boost ratings and save her show--even if it means pretending to be married to a man who's definitely not the fiance who ran out on her three years ago.

When a handsome reporter starts shadowing Miranda's every move, all his digging into her personal life brings him a little too close to the truth--and to her. Can the girl whose entire identity is wrapped up in her on-screen persona finally find the nerve to set the record straight? And if she does, will the life she's built come crashing down just as she's found a love to last?

"Sweet, fun, and faith-filled, Melissa Tagg's Made To Last is a story made to delight lovers of romance and behind-the-scenes reality TV. Pull up an armchair and enjoy!"
-Lisa Wingate
, National Bestselling Author of Blue Moon Bay, one of Booklist's Top 10 of 2012

"Clever plot. Engaging, funny, fresh writing. A winning voice with deeper layers that touch the heart. Melissa Tagg is the whole package. A delight for CBA readers."
-Rachel Hauck, award-winning and bestselling author of Once Upon a Prince

"If there is such thing as a perfect story, Melissa Tagg has written it with this first novel. Laugh-out-loud funny, a delightful premise, hunky heroes, surprising plot twists and poignant, heart-tugging moments, all wound together with beautiful writing. Made to Last is a keeper that will charm its way onto your shelf, and into your heart."
-Susan May Warren, RITA Award winner and bestselling author of Take a Chance on Me

"Made to Last is a fun romantic comedy that will have you turning the pages. Melissa Tagg is a fresh voice to watch."
-Jenny B. Jones, award-winning author of Save the Date and There You'll Find Me

"Melissa Tagg has written a fun, fast-paced romance. Her first novel will certainly not be her last."
-Kristin Billerbeck, author of The Scent of Rain

"A must for fans of romantic comedy! Melissa Tagg's endearing characters charmed me and their story line captured my imagination. Reading Made To Last was like eating a hot fudge brownie sundae with girlfriends. Fun. Delicious. Completely entertaining."
-Becky Wade, author of My Stubborn Heart and Undeniably Yours

"With witty dialogue, lovable characters, and an entertaining plot, Melissa Tagg is sure to become a new favorite among fans of Christian romance. Made to Last reminds us all that we are more than the roles we play. At our core, beneath our failures and hang-ups, we are loved and cherished by a faithful God."
-Katie Ganshert, author of Wildflowers From Winter and Wishing on Willows

"Readers are going to fall in love with Melissa Tagg's novels! She writes vivid stories filled with true-to-life characters who wrestle with questions about life, faith and romance. Melissa's writing is equal parts laugh out loud humor and moments that touch your heart. I can't wait for others to discover this talented new author!"
-Beth K. Vogt, author of Wish You Were Here and Catch a Falling Star

"What happens when a harmless lie you didn't intend to tell takes on a life of its own? When you're Miranda Woodruff, star of a home improvement show, you learn how to let go and become who God called you to be because nothing else is left. A great story with life-impacting truth surrounded by romance to make you swoon."
-Cara Putman,
award-winning author of A Wedding Transpires on Mackinac Island

"Reading Made to Last, Melissa Tagg's debut novel, was like meeting new friends whom I wanted to continue hanging out with long after the book ended. Melissa's fresh voice and ability to craft a well-written story hooked me with the opening line and held my attention to the very end. Her flawed characters, LOL moments and spiritual truth provided a foundation for a stellar debut novel. I even had to dab my teary eyes a couple of times. Melissa Tagg is an author to watch and one whose books I want to fill my shelves."
-Lisa Jordan, award-winning author of Lakeside Reunion and Lakeside Family

Views: 28 Replies: 0 Hi. I just joined this and want to ask you smart people for financial advice.
I'm 26, work in healthcare, 2 jobs, make about 50k. Have 9k in retirement savings, 1500 in emergency savings, I know that's not great but I paid off all my student loans a couple months ago. Since then I've been putting 17% in 401k. Emergency savings also was more but I had surgery last week and had complications, e.r. visit, hospitalization.. have no debt except for 3k in no interest medical debt from before I had insurance. I own my car.
I live with my boyfriend, the only bill I pay is water. I buy groceries a lot and gas in the car for work and whatever else. Boyfriend is kinda eccentric, saves money in a safe in his house. He makes way more than I do, has no health insurance, no debt, rents apartment, owns his own business and can never figure out how much taxes he has to pay. I've tried to b.s. him into marrying me so I can put him on my insurance but even I can't figure out if being married would save money or cost more in taxes etc. I did finally manage to convince him to get a credit card to start building a credit history.
Mainly I'm wondering if there's some kind of personal finance website for self employed people that you guys could recommend, and also what kind of retirement account he can get so he can get more return on investment than sitting in the safe. Right now the best plan I can come up with is to build my emergency fund back up and then just start saving twice as much money in my retirement account to make up for his lack of one.
I want to try to encourage him to manage his finances better but I don't feel like I have the knowledge to even give him good advice.

-2/2 summer house (as no heat), with big backyard and view of bay. Will make 10k-11k/summer. The house is built on a standard lot size, so 5-10 yrs from now, I could put 300k house on it, and greatly increase income. A 2 unit would bring 35-40k/summer, another 5k in winter, etc. .The wild card is the bay can flood during a bad hurricane, and since it's a legacy house, there's no flood insurance avail.

Views: 206 Replies: 0 Technical Analysis of Gaps: Identifying Profitable Gaps for Trading
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0089EM3GI

Gaps have attracted the attention of market technicians from the earliest days of charting. Theyre not merely conspicuous: they represent price jumps that could signal profitable trading opportunities. Until now, however, "folklore" about gap trading has been common, and tested, research-based knowledge virtually nonexistent. In Technical Analysis of Gaps, renowned technical analysis researchers Julie Dahlquist and Richard Bauer change all that. Drawing on 60 years of comprehensive data, they demonstrate how to sort "strategic" gaps from trivial ones, and successfully trade on gaps identified as significant. Building on work that recently earned them the Market Technicians Associations 2011 Charles H. Dow Award for creativity and innovation in technical analysis, Dahlquist and Bauer offer specific gap-related trading tips for stocks, futures, and options. They consider a wide variety of market conditions, including gap size, volume and previous price movement, illuminating their findings with easy-to-understand diagrams. Coverage includes: understanding what gaps are and how they arise; recognizing windows on candlestick charts; identifying gaps with superior profit potential; combining gaps with other technical techniques for a more complete and effective analysis; and putting it all together with real trading strategies. For stock, commodity, and currency traders in the U.S. and worldwide, and for active individual investors seeking new ways to maximize returns.

4.8 out of 5 stars with 23 reviews

How do pastors measure success? Is it through the number of people who fill the pews on Sunday morning? Is it tied to programs, building projects, salary, or book deals? Is it about how much technology they use or what their worship band sounds like? Shawn Lovejoy has seen all of these measures of success lead pastors toward pride, self-reliance, loneliness, isolation, exhaustion, and, in the most extreme cases, self-destruction.

In this honest and encouraging book, he calls pastors back to the "main thing"--the call to love people and make disciples--and to measure their success the way God does. Using Scripture, personal examples, and case studies, Lovejoy gently leads pastors back to their first love, and in doing so he leads them toward a more effective and joy-filled ministry.

You would only read this book if you are brazen enough to think your message has a right to be heard in the marketplace. And that means you need to take another look beneath the ice-berg because frankly - snappy branding just doesnt cut it anymore.
Have you ever wondered what it takes for every part of your business to stay on brand? How many more times must you remind your team (and sometimes yourself) that going through the motions is not the same as delivering on the brand promise. Disappointing customers with generic service just because you have other things to get done or increases in loss of market share because of a weak brand message. Or poor business structures that fail miserably to amplify your brand.
Suddenly you begin to notice that being a brand is more than just a clever logo and for the first time you realize that your business if failing your brand.
If only you knew how to prevent your business from ruining your brand.
You are certainly not alone. Most leaders, whether in small business, not for profit or private practice wrongly attempt to understand first the science of business when instead they should concentrate on building an artful brand.
Brands Dont Grow on Trees is a vibrant business conversation that unites two seemingly opposing forces - the art of a mission marketing approach with the science of managing a business.
This culminates in the 4 Pillars of the BrandCULTURE EQ framework which states that there is an intelligence required to successfully execute a brand focused business growth strategy.
Those 4 Pillars include 1) Customer Advocacy 2) Brand Development 3) Cultural Mapping and 4) Management Structures. And as a result this process unravels the riddle that afflicts passionate leaders -which is how do I integrate my brand message with my business - not just for today for days to come?

Brands Dont Grow on Trees is written within the 4 sections of the BrandCULTURE EQ framework, and proposes the following:
1. Customer Advocacy says that before you undertake any strategic move in business you must first know and care about what your customers care about. To do this means as a leader you need to shift from a mindset that is product-orientated to one that is centered upon championing not just the wants or needs of your market but also the mission and the message that your market needs to hear.

2. Brand Development branding is just the tip of the ice-berg and the activity of branding does come close to what happens when you look beneath the ice-berg and start to develop your brand and connect your brand to your daily operations. Becoming a brand, whether on a local or global scale means you become more concerned with developing deep roots that are 100% aligned with brand message - that says we are here for a mission here for a purpose.

3. Cultural Mapping of all the species, humans are the only ones that ignore their instincts and activate the least amount of their senses. A bird can sense a change in weather signals and avoid perishing in a tsunami yet a boss fails to notice or take action when that staff member rolls their eyes when discussion on brand values is tabled at a meeting. Moving forward, mission leaders need to adopt a higher sensory awareness if they want to ensure that both the internal and external communication of their brand message remains positive.

4. Turnkey Structures For once and for all, if ever there was a good reason to finally get on top of implementing proper systems within your business all you need to do is take notice of the trillion-dollar global industry that is based upon selling a system. That industry is franchising. Franchising is known for building small businesses indicative of a strong brand and rock solid systems. And that very system that amplifies the brand.

But what is far more important is the thinking behind designing the system which is more about building a brand and not just building a business.

Using media devices to stream content: Streaming via Roku and similar devices.
Stream from your computer: Hooking your computer to the TV.

And the more complicated (still easy with this plan) Home Theater PC options:

Re-purposing an old computer: Simple steps to change that old computer into an HTPC.
Building an HTPC: It seems intimidating, but it isn't hard to build one from scratch.

You can cut cable in the next seven days, even if you decide you want to go all out and build a Home Theater PC (HTPC). Previously, this option was usually reserved for IT pros and tech geeks. With this book and free software available on the internet, the process becomes simple for anyone.

If you're a "new" customer to drugstore.com, you can stack this with their $5 (off $30) or $10 (off $50) new customer discount. Bringing the price down to $31.

Note: You'll need to enter zip-code and click "get estimate" to see discount. Also, your pre-authorization charge might not include this discount -- this is normal, and actual charge reflects all discounts.

But being as the $50 (for $10 off) is calculated from the pre-coupon price, we're only $10.05 short of saving another $5.
So, either add $10 of your own filler items (for a total of $36), or add "random" items that have a high coupon/price ratio and make your total even cheaper.
[Example scenario: Add two Clairol Hair Colors ($3.49 ea), and a CoverGirl Eye Shadow ($3.09). Your total should now drop to $29.52!]
Avoiding California taxes in Silicon Valley? (capital gains taxes)
Added on : Tuesday November 05th 2013 05:00:08 PM
g: 0 Posted By: motuwallet
Views: 70 Replies: 0 I'm considering moving to Silicon Valley to start a company. It would be useful for my industry, and I like the area. The goal would be to sell it within a few years, at which point I would presumably receive a large amount of capital gains. (Let's assume long term cap gains.)

What strategies can be employed to minimize or avoid entirely paying any taxes to CA? A bunch of googling is telling me the state treats LT cap gains same as normal income, meaning the top rate will be 13.3%. I can't tell if this is accurate or just FUD and SEO crap.

Is cap gains tax only incurred in the state of residence at the time of sale? Meaning, if I work on building this company for the next 3 years in CA, then move to Las Vegas, NV on Jan 1 and sell everything, is there any way CA can come after me for taxes? What do big companies do in these situations? I have a hard time believing Zuckerberg or the Google guys have paid / will pay multiple billions in CA state taxes.

Trying to determine if it's even worth locating in CA. If the price is a 13.3% stake in my company, I'd rather check out low/no tax states like TX or NV.

Tina, a graphic designer, is struggling to build her own business in the face of mounting financial pressure as her husband's work hours
have been cut. When a business conference doesn't go according to plan, Tina cashes in all her frequent flyer miles for a first-class upgrade for the return home.

On the flight, she begins a friendship with Regina King, an elderly business woman with a past. The older woman offers Tina a gift: an antique silver pocket watch. This watch has a secret: the inscription changes each day, sharing messages of inspiration, and challenging the owner to improve
their life.

Can Tina master the lessons of The Secret Watch and turn her business (and her life) around before time runs out?

Views: 0 Replies: 0 I am totally new to this, but I know people do it to get jobs done in their favor and many times to speed up the process. I was a passenger with mycolleague (on work visit) the other day in Louisiana, when he was pulled over for speeding. When the cop walked over to get his licence and insurance, the colleague gave him the whole wallet instead of just his licence. The cop took the wallet to "check" the licence and when he came back, he just warned him and let us go. My colleague commented that the 50 dollar bill in the wallet made it happen.

In one of the other threads, it was mentioned that taking the building inspector to steak & eggs lunch could help.

If you want to know, step by step, how to quickly, easily, and smoothly walk anyone from being a skeptical prospect to a happy customer that refers you friends, family, and colleagues...then you want to read this book.

Here's the deal:At its core, selling isn't a patchwork of cheesy closing techniques, annoying high-pressure tactics, or gimmicky rebuttals.

True salesmanship follows very specific laws, has very specific steps and stages, and leaves a customer feeling happy and helped. It's honest, respectful, enlightening, friendly, and done with real care. It's the type of selling that wins you not only customers, but fans.

Not coincidentally, this is the type of selling that truly great salespeople have mastered. This is the type of selling that keeps pipelines full and moving, and that builds a strong, loyal customer base that continues to give back to you in the form of customer loyalty, reorders, and referrals.

Well, that's what this book is all about. It will give you a crystal-clear picture of the exact steps that every sale must move through and why, and how to methodically take any prospect through each, and eventually to the close. And how to do it with integrity and pride.

In this book, you'll learn things like...

The eight precise steps of every sale. Leave any out, and you will struggle. Use them all correctly, and you will be able to close unlimited sales.
The true purpose of the presentation and the Crucial, often-missing steps that need to be taken first. If you're making the same presentation mistakes as most other salespeople, this chapter alone could double your sales.
How to easily discover which prospects can use and pay for your product/service, and which can't. Time is your most valuable commodity as a salesperson, and if wasted, it costs you money.
Learn how to smoothly create an abundance of closing opportunities, and know when to act on them and close. This is the hallmark of every master closer. Learn it, use it, and profit.
Why it's a myth that you need to know multiple ways to close deals. Learn this one, simple method, and you'll be able to use it to close all of your sales.
Simple formulas to turn any objection into a closing opportunity. Use them and never fear hearing a prospect's objection ever again.
And a whole lot more!

This is more than a just a book, really. It's a step-by-step sales training course. Each chapter ends with precise exercises that will help you master each technique taught and each step of the sales process.

If you are new to sales, make this book the first one you read, and you will greatly increase your chances for quick success.

If you are a seasoned veteran and are looking for ways to improve your numbers, this book will help you make your sales goals a reality.

SPECIAL BONUS FOR READERS!

With this book you'll also get a free "Road Map" from the author that lays out, in a PDF chart, every step and key principles taught in the book.

Print it out and keep it handy because it makes for a great "cheat sheet" to use while selling, or just to refresh on what you've learned.
From the AuthorHi,

I'm Mike, and I spent six years building and ultimately selling a multi-million dollar software sales company, AllMicro.

I attribute my success most to my ability to sell, which helped me not only get into the business in the first place, but train hundreds of salespeople over the years to build a large, productive sales force.

My experience teaching has shown me that everyone has the potential to be a great salesperson. It only takes three things.

First, you have to know the fundamental principles of selling. No amount of trick techniques or gimmicks can replace an understanding of the underlying laws of sales and persuasion.

Second, you have to know the precise steps that every sale must go through, and how to smoothly walk prospects through each. If you can't, you'll never reach your full potential as a salesperson.

Third, you have to have a strong desire to succeed. I know that sounds trite, but it's true--the best salespeople are inevitably the most driven. Fortunately, once you have the first two prerequisites, this final one usually takes care of itself.

Whether you're new to sales and have no experience or are a seasoned veteran looking for a way to boost your numbers, I can help you.

In my book you'll find the most important principles, techniques, and training exercises that I isolated, tested, and codified during my twenty years in sales and sales training. Regardless of what you're selling, this book will help you sell more and sell faster. This may just be the only book you need to read on sales, but I'll let you be the judge of that.

I hope you enjoy my book and I'd love to hear from you.

Sincerely,

Mike

4 remarkable eBooks help you lead more successfully by leading more ethically

Honor, ethics, and compassion are central to effective leadership. Now, an extraordinary new eBook collection reveals why this is true, and how you can lead more honorably and successfully in your own organization. In Winners Never Cheat: Even in Difficult Times, New and Expanded Edition, Jon M. Huntsman shows how to succeed at the top, without sacrificing the principles that make life worth living. Huntsman personally built a $12 billion company from scratch, the old-fashioned way: with integrity. Now, he tells you how he did it, and how you can, too. Along the way, he offers a powerful reminder of why you work, and why you were chosen to lead. Next, in Lead with LUV: A Different Way to Create Real Success, the legendary Ken Blanchard ("The One Minute Manager") and former Southwest Airlines CEO Colleen Barrett help you achieve amazing results by leading with love. They explain what "love" really means in the organizational context, why leading with love is not "soft" management, how to handle inappropriate behavior, how to make "servant leadership" work, and how to sustain leadership with love. In Moral Intelligence 2.0: Enhancing Business Performance and Leadership Success in Turbulent Times, Doug Lennick and Fred Kiel show why sustainable optimal business performance requires superior moral and emotional competencies. Using new case studies, they identify connections between moral intelligence and higher levels of trust, engagement, retention, and innovation. They deliver specific guidance on moral leadership in both large organizations and entrepreneurial ventures, plus a new step-by-step plan for measuring and strengthening organizational integrity, responsibility, compassion, and forgiveness. Finally, in The Power of Communication, Helio Fred Garcia focuses on the most indispensable leadership discipline: honorable and effective communication.

Secrets of a Master Closer: A Simpler, Easier, and Faster Way to Sell Anything to Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere [Kindle Edition] was $6.95

If you want to know, step by step, how to quickly, easily, and smoothly walk anyone from being a skeptical prospect to a happy customer that refers you friends, family, and colleagues...then you want to read this book.

Here's the deal:At its core, selling isn't a patchwork of cheesy closing techniques, annoying high-pressure tactics, or gimmicky rebuttals.

True salesmanship follows very specific laws, has very specific steps and stages, and leaves a customer feeling happy and helped. It's honest, respectful, enlightening, friendly, and done with real care. It's the type of selling that wins you not only customers, but fans.

Not coincidentally, this is the type of selling that truly great salespeople have mastered. This is the type of selling that keeps pipelines full and moving, and that builds a strong, loyal customer base that continues to give back to you in the form of customer loyalty, reorders, and referrals.

Well, that's what this book is all about. It will give you a crystal-clear picture of the exact steps that every sale must move through and why, and how to methodically take any prospect through each, and eventually to the close. And how to do it with integrity and pride.

In this book, you'll learn things like...

The eight precise steps of every sale. Leave any out, and you will struggle. Use them all correctly, and you will be able to close unlimited sales.
The true purpose of the presentation and the Crucial, often-missing steps that need to be taken first. If you're making the same presentation mistakes as most other salespeople, this chapter alone could double your sales.
How to easily discover which prospects can use and pay for your product/service, and which can't. Time is your most valuable commodity as a salesperson, and if wasted, it costs you money.
Learn how to smoothly create an abundance of closing opportunities, and know when to act on them and close. This is the hallmark of every master closer. Learn it, use it, and profit.
Why it's a myth that you need to know multiple ways to close deals. Learn this one, simple method, and you'll be able to use it to close all of your sales.
Simple formulas to turn any objection into a closing opportunity. Use them and never fear hearing a prospect's objection ever again.
And a whole lot more!

This is more than a just a book, really. It's a step-by-step sales training course. Each chapter ends with precise exercises that will help you master each technique taught and each step of the sales process.

If you are new to sales, make this book the first one you read, and you will greatly increase your chances for quick success.

If you are a seasoned veteran and are looking for ways to improve your numbers, this book will help you make your sales goals a reality.

SPECIAL BONUS FOR READERS!

With this book you'll also get a free "Road Map" from the author that lays out, in a PDF chart, every step and key principles taught in the book.

Print it out and keep it handy because it makes for a great "cheat sheet" to use while selling, or just to refresh on what you've learned.
From the AuthorHi,

I'm Mike, and I spent six years building and ultimately selling a multi-million dollar software sales company, AllMicro.

I attribute my success most to my ability to sell, which helped me not only get into the business in the first place, but train hundreds of salespeople over the years to build a large, productive sales force.

My experience teaching has shown me that everyone has the potential to be a great salesperson. It only takes three things.

First, you have to know the fundamental principles of selling. No amount of trick techniques or gimmicks can replace an understanding of the underlying laws of sales and persuasion.

Second, you have to know the precise steps that every sale must go through, and how to smoothly walk prospects through each. If you can't, you'll never reach your full potential as a salesperson.

Third, you have to have a strong desire to succeed. I know that sounds trite, but it's true--the best salespeople are inevitably the most driven. Fortunately, once you have the first two prerequisites, this final one usually takes care of itself.

Whether you're new to sales and have no experience or are a seasoned veteran looking for a way to boost your numbers, I can help you.

In my book you'll find the most important principles, techniques, and training exercises that I isolated, tested, and codified during my twenty years in sales and sales training. Regardless of what you're selling, this book will help you sell more and sell faster. This may just be the only book you need to read on sales, but I'll let you be the judge of that.

I hope you enjoy my book and I'd love to hear from you.

Sincerely,

Mike

Sustainable, responsible financial innovation: lessons from the crisis, and new paths to global prosperity

After the global financial crisis, responsible financial innovation is more Crucial than ever. However, financial innovation will only succeed if it reflects the true lessons of the past decade. In this collection, three leading global finance researchers share those lessons, offering Crucial insights for market participants, policymakers, and other stakeholders. Drawing on their pioneering work, they illuminate new opportunities for sustainable innovation in finance that can help restore housing markets and the overall global economy, while avoiding the failures of predecessors. In Financing the Future, Franklin Allen and Glenn Yago carefully discuss the current role of financial innovation in capitalizing businesses, industries, breakthrough technologies, housing solutions, medical treatments, and environmental projects. Allen and Yago explain how sophisticated capital structures can enable companies and individuals to raise funding in larger amounts for longer terms at lower cost, accomplishing tasks that would otherwise be impossible -- and offer a full chapter of essential lessons for using financial innovation to add value, manage risk, and improve the stability of the global economy. Next, in Fixing the Housing Market, Allen, Yago, and James R. Barth explain how responsible financial innovation can "reboot" damaged housing markets, improve their efficiency, and make housing more accessible to millions. The authors walk through the history of housing finance, evaluate housing finance systems in mature economies during and after the crisis, highlight benefits and risks associated with each leading mortgage funding structure and product, and assess current housing finance structures in BRIC economies. Building on these comparisons, they show how to create a more stable and sustainable financing system for housing: one that provides better shelter for more people, helps the industry recover, and creates thousands of new jobs.

Can Christians Be Political Activists without Hating Each Other?

As the next presidential election comes into view, Americans are deciding where to stand on key issues. The church has often been as politically divided as the culture, but Charles Drew offers an alternative for people who care deeply about their faith, about Christian harmony, and about the church's calling in the world. In this updated and revised version of A Public Faith (NavPress 2000), Drew helps Christians develop practical biblical convictions about critical social and political issues.

Distinguishing between moral principle and political strategy, Body Broken equips believers to maintain the unity of the church while building their political activism upon a thoughtful and biblical foundation. Drew helps Christians of all political persuasions understand how to practice servanthood, cooperation, and integrity in today's public square.
--
Charles D. Drew, M.Div., has pastored for thirty years in Virginia, Long Island, and New York, all in university settings. He presently serves as the senior minister of Emmanuel Presbyterian Church, which he founded in 2000 near Columbia University. He speaks frequently to university groups and churches and is the author of The Ancient Love Song and A Journey Worth Taking. He and his wife, Jean, have two married children and two grandchildren.

Views: 262 Replies: 8 I graduated HS in 2005. From 2007-2011 I was making around $16 an hour while going to school. Graduated from a well known state college in December 2010 with a bachelors in business

After graduating, I took a trainee role working at a scrap metal recycling company for $21 hourly, with no benefits until the trainee period ended. It was kind of a mismanaged company and I did not see much potential there. After 8 months I decided to start looking for a new job. I anticipated a difficult job search, but got the first job I interviewed for and was hired on to an entry level job at a salary of $38,000 with good benefits. I started in November 2011. I have had 2 reviews/raises since then. First one raised me $1000 to $39,000. I was recently reviewed again and received a promotion for which I got an 8% raise. Which really is only a 4 or 5% raise because everyone gets a standard 3 or 4% raise every year. So now I am in this position which should be paying in the $50,000's, yet I am making $42,000 a year.

Everyone at my company seems to like me. I get great reviews every year and meet every challenge I am given. The company has a good reputation and I am working in the company s main building, which has 500+ people working in it.I like everything about my job and employment situation, except my paycheck. I am not some young kid anymore and I am gonna have to support a family. I need to make more money. Considering I was recently promoted, how long do I have to put in before leaving for a competitor, if that is my best option?

Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Thanks

30;45 day security deposit return window (IL) opinion poll
Added on : Tuesday October 08th 2013 10:00:11 AM
g: 0 Posted By: zacwashington
Views: 63 Replies: 1 A friend (referred to as 'Tenant' from here out) moved out of an 8 unit apartment building in Illinois on Aug 31. Original lease was for 12 MO and went month to month on verbal agreement after 12 MO. Tenant notified landlord 30+ days prior to vacate and left at 14 Months. Security deposit was 625$ at onset of lease. Lease has no extra details on security deposit rules or restrictions. Tenant requested final walkthrough prior to vacating, landlord refused verbally stating no walkthrough would be needed as she was sure tenant did no damage (moot point). Tenant notified landlord of new mailing address in writing prior to vacating. (I am assuming tenant has receipt proving deposit was paid, can verify later as this could be a show stopper on a small claim potentially).

Just FYI landlord was decent, upkeep of property was average, no issues during occupancy. Tenant bought a house in an area an hour away and needs no rent reference and will likely never cross paths with landlord again.

As of today (day 38 since vacating property): No security deposit refund, no receipts or itemized statement of charges (no contact at all). So past 30 day window, tenant is entitled to full deposit refund. Past 45 day window tenant can be entitled to 2X deposit plus court and reasonable attorney fees. Figuring a 6 hour investment time (estimation of court prep and small claims time?) Potential to net 100 / hour in a small claim. Other potential to offer buyout to landlord to pay 2X without incurring court cost/attorney fees?

Just on an opinion level, what would you do? Go after money you are entitled to (even though its only profit of 625$)? Or play the nice person card and remind the landlord and accept the refund of only the original deposit of 625$?

Excerpt from Security Deposit Return Act:

[code](765 ILCS 710/1)[/code][code](from Ch. 80, par. 101)[/code]
[code]Sec. 1. [/code][code] [/code][code]A lessor of residential real property, containing 5 or more units, who has received a security deposit from a lessee to secure the payment of rent or to compensate for damage to the leased property may not withhold any part of that deposit as compensation for property damage unless he has, within 30 days of the date that the lessee vacated the premises, furnished to the lessee, delivered in person, by mail directed to his last known address, or by electronic mail to a verified electronic mail address provided by the lessee, an itemized statement of the damage allegedly caused to the premises and the estimated or actual cost for repairing or replacing each item on that statement, attaching the paid receipts, or copies thereof, for the repair or replacement. If the lessor utilizes his or her own labor to repair any damage caused by the lessee, the lessor may include the reasonable cost of his or her labor to repair such damage. If estimated cost is given, the lessor shall furnish the lessee with paid receipts, or copies thereof, within 30 days from the date the statement showing estimated cost was furnished to the lessee, as required by this Section. If no such statement and receipts, or copies thereof, are furnished to the lessee as required by this Section, the lessor shall return the security deposit in full within 45 days of the date that the lessee vacated the premises.[/code][code] [/code]
[code][/code][code]Upon a finding by a circuit court that a lessor has refused to supply the itemized statement required by this Section, or has supplied such statement in bad faith, and has failed or refused to return the amount of the security deposit due within the time limits provided, the lessor shall be liable for an amount equal to twice the amount of the security deposit due, together with court costs and reasonable attorney's fees.[/code]

Like millions of other women, CNNs Headline News and truTVs In Session anchor Christi Paul blamed herself for the emotional abuse heaped on her by her first husband, whose violent, profanity-laced tirades left her feeling as though she had no value, no self-worth, and nowhere to turn for help.

Then one day, when Christi was taking refuge in a church parking lot, the verse Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding popped into her head. In that moment, she realized she did have someplace to turn after all. Holding fast to her faith, Christi began the arduous process of rebuilding her self-image and regaining control of her life.

Now happily remarried and the mother of three girls, Christi feels called to share her story in the hope that other victims will find courage to seek the help they desperately need and deserve.

Written with great candor and poignancy, Love Isnt Supposed to Hurt chronicles Christis personal experience of dealing with emotional abuse and shows howwith Gods help, some unconventional therapy, and the support of family and friendsshe was able to break the cycle of abuse, regain her sense of self-worth, and discover what true love is really all about.

Builder wants additonal monies for landscaping
Added on : Wednesday September 25th 2013 11:00:09 AM
g: 0 Posted By: joeH1974
Views: 1 Replies: 0 My wife and I have entered into contract for new construction. The forms were laid yesterday, and the home is slated to be completed around mid-January.

The home is in a gated community, and the land parcels are quite large (1.28 acres for ours). On the original price breakdown, the builder quoted $4k for the front yard landscaping work. We agreed to the construction price, and signed off on the contract. The builder did as well. When we received the plans, we didn't like the placement of the home on the land, and asked that the front of the home be rotated around 10 degrees further to the south. The builder agreed, and we signed off on the plans.

Today I received an e-mail from the builder stating that the neighborhood architectural review committee requires that not only the front yard landscaping be completed prior to moving in, but side landscaping must be completed as well. This comprises around 10,000 sq feet of land between the street and the rock wall enclosing our yard. The builder is stating that they will eat the additional cost of landscaping for the front of the yard due to the home rotation, but that I need to advise them how I want to pay for the additional $8,000 in landscaping expenses for the side. (Change order, out of pocket, hire own landscaper). Apparently they did not know of the proposed requirement until it was levied on them at another home in the community they just finished building. The other homeowner apparently paid for the additional cost without issue.

My question is: can the builder ask me to pay for the side yard landscaping after a contract has been signed agreeing on construction price? Isn't it the responsibility of the builder to understand the covenants prior to determining an agreed price? Or should this really be my responsibility, as when we signed the contract they hadn't heard from the committee yet on the other home and therefore couldn't have known about the additional landscaping needed. So far, we've had a good working relationship between us and the builder, but $8k is something we definitely weren't expecting.

Builder Asking Us to Sign an Easement
Added on : Tuesday September 24th 2013 12:00:08 PM
g: 0 Posted By: CyBaba
Views: 0 Replies: 0 All FWers;

We are currently building a house. During site development, the builder found out that sewer line for the existing house runs through our lot. He emailed me that he will re-route it and that I will need to sign and addendum for easement. We are currently under contract and closed with a construction loan.

My questions

1) What should I watch out for ?
2) any down side of having such easement on my property
3) Do i have any options ? Such as just saying no to signing and have him figure out how to re-route it around the property
4) if I have to sign the easement, I would like to get something in return like some upgrades. Is it possible ? If so, how do I go about it.
5) any other suggestions.

Thanks in advance !

Budgeting effectively using multiple accounts and automatic transfers
Added on : Wednesday September 18th 2013 12:00:05 PM
g: 0 Posted By: loheiman
Views: 81 Replies: 0 I'd like to create a discussion and see how savvy FWers setup their bank accounts, credit cards and automatic transfers for the purpose of effective budgeting.

I've never really been serious about this before but I'm 26 now have little savings and want to change that (have paid off my student loans tho!). I've used Mint and Yodlee for years to track transactions and have spent the last few months using Mint to budget but I feel it's not ideal for accounting for irregular expenses or saving for future goals etc.

My goals are to:
Create scarcity and properly account for future expenses/obligations so I know exactly how much money I can spendat any given time
Ensure that I "pay myself first" and properly save for the future
Create an easy way to save for goals/big purchases such as new laptop, phone, clothes etc

I got inspiration fromthis article on the 4 hour work week blog. I like the idea of automatic transfers and divvying up money into many sub accounts but am unsure how well this will really work with credit cards. Using debit/check cards would obviously simplify this but I can't get myself to do that because I don't want to give up 1) the layer of protection from fraud 2)Lack of liquidity due to large holds and 3) CashBack, miles, points etc

Same as 31st of month

17th of month:
Same as 2nd of month


PAYING FOR THINGS
My thinking here is to have a separate credit card for each type of expense (Monthly, Irregular, Travel etc) and pay each credit card off from its corresponding checking account.

Where I'm a bit stuck is how to pay for Everyday Spending:If i'm constantly using a credit card here, my "view" into how much I have to spend is clouded by two things: 1) The lag of credit card transactions posting to account and 2) Always having to do mental math of subtracting the credit card balance from my Everyday Spending account. Any ideas here? Cash only is not an option as I frequently purchase items online (Amazon prime addict here!)


MISC INFO:
I plan to use Alliant checking acounts for the bulk of my accounts because it transfers money very fast to/from external accounts and instantly between internal accounts
I'd also use Alliant checking for my Everyday Spending account but I've been spoiled by Schwab and the idea of searching for In-Network ATMs sounds terrible
I often open credit cards/checking accounts for miles/bonuses so it'd be nice if I could do that without tangling with my regular accounting


QUESTIONS FOR YOU:
What do you do?
How well does it work?
Have any of you given up credit cards to simplify your system?
How do determine how much spending money you have at any given time and make guilt-free purchases?

Any and all feedback/input/advice is welcome. Thanks!

Not all teachers are parents, but all parents are teachers. When we teach kids to be good people who possess the social courage to do the right thing, we help to make the world a safer, saner, more accepting place for all of us. Annie Fox, M.Ed.

We live in a time shaped by a viral culture of cruelty. Now and in the future, we desperately need more good people. But where will these young people come from? From the homes of parents with a game plan! In Teaching Kids to Be Good People, Annie Fox has written a very personal, step-by-step guide to teaching your children to make healthy choices (online and off). Because being good is not enough. We have to do good.

This very pragmatic and funny guide includes essays, podcasts, prompts, tools, questions, answers, and self-assessment quizzes, all for the purpose of teaching kids to be good people. Hopefully, youll become so engaged in this process that you will inspire your children to do the right thing when no one's watching, and when everyone is watching.

About the Author

When Annie Fox's first book "People Are Like Lollipops" (Holiday House) was published, she wasn't old enough to legally sign the contract! By the time she turned 21, though, she decided that helping kids would be her life's work. After graduating from Cornell University with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies then completing her Master's in Education, she began exploring ways to use technology to entertain kids while building their emotional intelligence skills.In 1977, Annie and her husband David opened Marin Computer Center, the world's first public access microcomputer facility. Her work there led her to write her best selling book, "Armchair BASIC: An Absolute Beginner's Guide to Microcomputers and Programming in BASIC" (Osborn/McGraw-Hill). After a detour into the world of screen writing, Annie returned to computers as an award-winning writer/designer of children's CD-ROMs. (Putt-Putt; Madeline; Get Ready for School, Charlie Brown; and Mr. Potato Head Saves Veggie Valley are just a few of the titles on which she worked.)At the dawn of the Internet age, Annie dreamed up the idea for The InSite (TheInSite.org), a place "for teens and young adults to turn their world around." She is the creator, co-designer, writer, and executive producer of that award-winning site. One of The InSite's most popular features is Hey Terra, a Cyberspace Dear Abby. Annie's first book for teens, "The Teen Survival Guide to Dating & Relating: Real World Advice About Guys, Girls, Growing Up And Getting Along" (2000, 2005 Free Spirit Publishing), is based on hundreds of emails to Terra and Annie's responses to them. "Teen Survival Guide" is now available as a free PDF download from TeenSurvivalGuide.com."Are You My Friend?" a Read-it-to-Me iBook was written by Annie Fox, illustrated by Eli Noyes and produced by Electric Eggplant. This digital story book for 4-8 year olds is the first of the Raymond and Sheila Series and is now available in print form on Amazon, and as Android apps for Kindle Fire, Nook Tablet, and other Android tablets. The second Raymond and Sheila story "Are We Lost?" will be available in print in 2013. See RaymondAndSheila.com for more info.Annie's other books include: "Too Stressed to Think? A Teen Guide to Staying Sane When Life Makes You CRAZY," co-authored with Ruth Kirschner (Free Spirit Publishing) and the popular 3 book Middle School Confidential series (Free Spirit Publishing). Annie's Middle School Confidential apps (developed by Electric Eggplant) are available for iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire, Nook Tablet, and other Android tablets (see MiddleSchoolConfidential.com).Through her conference appearances and public events for kids, tweens, teens, parents, and educators, Annie continues working toward her goal of empowering young people through increased emotional intelligence skills, social courage, and stress-reduction strategies. Her new book for parents and teachers, "Teaching Kids To Be Good People," is now available in print and for Kindle (see TeachingKidsToBeGoodPeople.com)Visit Annie at her website, AnnieFox.com

Should I do an extended mortgage rate lock?
Added on : Tuesday September 10th 2013 07:00:07 AM
g: 0 Posted By: toddpublic
Views: 53 Replies: 0 Hi everyone,

I'm in the process of building a house that we will likely close on in February. I'm being offered by my lender a 6-month extended rate lock program with the following terms for a 30 year conventional fixed rate mortgage. I'm putting 25% down with excellent credit:

The one-time fee is $1,575 (0.5% of loan amount). The "base rate" will be 4.75% with a cap of 0.5% over the base rate, which is 5.25%. I also have the option to float down within 30 days of closing if the market rate is lower than my cap rate of 5.25%. So basically, I'm paying for a guarantee that I won't have a rate higher than 5.25%.

My question is simple, should I do it or hold out until I can do a regular (free) 60-day rate lock around December? What do people think will happen with the Fed and QE over the coming months? I'm also a little worried because we are still early in the build process (just starting framing this week) so there is the potential it could take longer than the 6 months to close, at which point I've wasted $1,575.

Thanks

Condo Leaking water but 2 plumbers can't find anythign
Added on : Saturday August 31st 2013 08:00:09 AM
g: 0 Posted By: sharpie130
Views: 92 Replies: 2 I have a few highrise units in Chicago and i get a call from the association that the unit below mine is taking on water. They assume it is my unit since they said it happens when shower is running(assume is true)

1.) I was told to have "condo insurance" which covers everything inside the walls etc etc. There is definitely no sign of a leak at all in my unit so i'm guessing if there is one it is the draining below walls somewhere.Their office is now closed but isn't the association usually responsible for things that leak in piping that is not in the unit.

2.) I have hired 2 plumbers and they both can't see anything that's visible from my end that's wrong.

My question is. Shouldn't the building take care of issues insides of the building's walls? Who would file the insurance if we had to? me or my tenant(renter's insurance).

Labor day weekend and no one is working to answer any of my questions =/

Creditworthiness of a new LLC.
Added on : Monday August 26th 2013 08:00:11 AM
g: 0 Posted By: StevenColorado
Views: 110 Replies: 0 Situation - my stepson got laid off from his job as an exterminator, working for a local branch. He had been working for them for six months. When he was hired, he was doing bug-killing, but started selling extermination jobs as well. He consistently broke national sales records in the company, even competing against salesmen with ten years of experience, got along great with customers, and was being groomed for management. He was let go because of the company's "last hired, first let go" policy, and was told he will be eligible for rehire once things get busier in April. We both figure the local company branch won't be around by then.

The current plan is for him to go into business for himself. We need to first review the noncompete agreement he signed to see how enforceable it is. Assuming it won't stand up, then we plan to have him start working weekends and evenings on an extermination business during the slow season, and then go FT come January when things pick up. I figure the way to go is an LLC with a good umbrella policy.

He's broke. He is still recovering financially from a sickness that kept him out of work for a year, but he's recovered from it physically 100%. My gf has just declared bankruptcy and is rebuilding her financial life. So I'll be providing seed money for the business. The upside is tremendous and the downside would be a couple thousand bucks. It's a no-brainer.

My question: how do I structure this so the LLC looks as creditworthy as possible? Right now, I plan to just deposit the seed money in a CU account, and get chemicals (as well as licensing, etc.), and simply cosign a CU loan, to the LLC, for the vehicle. Is there a better way? My goal is that the LLC be able to go to a CU for any additional loans needed.

Views: 171 Replies: 1 I'm in the process of buying a condo, and it's slightly different than the usual closing timeline. I have a few questions that I can't seem to find answers for.It is a small multi unit building that is being converted to condos. It isn't finished yet, but our offer is contingent on the developer finishing to spec. We have a signed p&s. The closing date could be anywhere in a 1 month period starting the end of october.Since it is so far out (90+ days ) I feel like our only option is to wait until we are within 60 or 90 days to get a mortgage. On the other hand I've been reading articles prognosticating on the direction the taper will go and it has me wanting to lock in a rate as early as possible.Questions:
1 Can I get a rate lock without having a closing date?
2 If I get a 60 day lock can I extend it before it expires, or do I need to just get a 90 day lock?
3 If I lock a rate, what will it cost me to back out and go with another bank?
4 I'm sure that Ben Bernanke is an avid fw reader, will you please pm me with when you are going to start the taper?
5 Any armchair homebuyers out there have any advice?Thank you all for your collective brains. I'm always humbled whenever I ask a question here.

PerkStreet Financial closing and canceling all perk balances
Added on : Monday August 12th 2013 08:00:09 AM

Views: 41 Replies: 3 I just received this email from PerkStreet Financial (help@myperkstreet.com) today:Hi Richard,

We have some bad news to share. PerkStreet Financial will be closing permanently, and ceasing all business operations. Even after PerkStreet Financial closes, you can continue to access your account in the same ways you do today, including your debit card, checks, and online bill pay. Online banking at http://myperkstreet.com will continue to be available.

Consistent with the terms of our Rewards Program Agreement, we have discontinued our perks program and cancelled all perks balances as of today, August 12, 2013. Redemptions requested prior to August 12, 2013 will processed in accordance with your request.

We are incredibly sad to share this news with you. You helped us create a company that we believed would change banking for the better and we have worked tirelessly to accomplish that mission. Ultimately, however, we could not find the financial success required to continue building the business. Weve written a deeper explanation of the situation here. We hope some added context helps explain why we've made this difficult decision.

To learn more about what this change means for you, visit our transition FAQ page and look out for more emails from us to help you along. If youre a joint account holder, please be sure to share this news with the joint owner of the account.

Questions? Please visit our FAQ page to get the details.

You helped us forge a path toward new ways of receiving benefits through financial products. We hope that legacy continues even if PerkStreet does not. Thank you for believing in us.

- The PerkStreet teamWhat is most alarming is that they have "cancelled all perks balances as of today, August 12, 2013." I did not receive any email warning me to redeem my perks before this date.If I remember correctly, PerkStreet required a minimum balance of $50 to redeem perks as gift cards, which was the only way to get the full amount. Cash redemption was $22 in perks for $20 in cash. They've taken the whole website for the perks down so I can't confirm.Regardless, I had $14 in perks which they have now seized. I'm sure others had far more.Additionally, their support number at 866.792.2834 only plays back a recorded message saying "Goodbye, and thank you for calling."

Career Advice/Direction
Added on : Tuesday August 06th 2013 04:00:07 PM
g: 0 Posted By: thesearchable
Views: 5 Replies: 0 Hello FW, long time reader.I know a lot of consultants, hr managers, software engineers, etc post on this board, I was hoping you all could share your thoughts with me regarding my situation. ( only person in family to go to school, not many people in my network to really ask these sort of questions to.Quickly
24 Years Old (25 within the month). BS in Bus Admin from a top public school + few programming courses from another local university. Currently Employed as a a Bus. Analyst/SQA Engineer II. ( maybe the term 'Technical BA' would better fit what I do, anyway).Graduated at 21, took a job as a BA with a fortune 50 company - wasn't making anything special, just over 40k in a COL neutral area. After just under 2 years I was faced with a pay freeze/ movement freeze for up to the next 3 years, so I left. In this role I worked predominately in software process improvement. I left for a very interesting and exciting position as a BA for a hi-tech research subsidiary of a mega-corp. Been about 1.5 years, was promoted after 1 year to my current title. Currently make 70k in a COL neutral to slightly high area. Live very comfortably. 0 debt almost 100k networth. Currently I work within the software group, doing the usual requirement gathering a BA would. I am also heavily involved in the actual test automation (as low-level as writing unit tests in C# testing the actual code) and integration of the software..Unfortunately it appears that within the next 6 months our funding from our parent company will run dry.So my question for everyone isWhat direction should I take? I have 0 ties to any area and am willing to move anywhere. My entire work experience ( will be 3.5-4 years depending on when the hammer drops) has been within the process improvement software - SDLC type work.I am marginally concerned I will have trouble getting another role as a BA II when the bulk of my functional knowledge is completely in proprietary company software programs/algorithms ( comments on that?).I do believe my technical knowledge is far superior to the bulk of BA's out there ( which I do feel is a strong advantage). However, I do not think it would be strong enough to go to a straight development role, nor is that something I feel I really want to do.My main passion is Finance, I would love to work in high finance- with 0 finance experience and no connections is this unrealistic? Thinking something along the same lines SDLC within a hedgefund or Large Bank, Ideas?I have considered getting my MBA, however the idea of going back to school doesn't really excite me - id do it part time and most of the even better part time mba programs, grads are only looking at 80k salaries coming out. Since I have kind of swung and missed on building a career within one company in my first two jobs, I really would like to try and pick an industry with readily transferable skills going forward. Thinking along those lines I can think of something like software work in the healthcare or finance industry. Best Skills : BA work ( documentation, use cases, etc) Technical Skills, Great SQL, decent C#, decent VBA. I am very proud of where I have come from (basically complete poverty growing up) to doing very well at the age of 24. I am just at a bit of a loss as to where I should try and take my career. I know there are a ton of very successful people on this board and Id love to hear everyone's opinions on a possible direction.
Thanks

Are you already operating in one Asian country but you're worried about getting into the business culture of another?Well you aren't alone! Research shows that the majority of business people going into Asia, including CEOs and senior executives, have no experience of an Asian country, don't speak a word of an Asian language and have made no adequate preparation for knowing the culture (s). They think Asia is one big region and anyway the business environment and mind-set are pretty much the same as their own. They can pick up the 'touchy feely' stuff later.The result is that they find themselves excluded from or trailing the competition because of simple cultural mistakes and poor communication. Companies waste MILLIONS of dollars in lost productivity, failed deals, ill-conceived strategies, and loss of goodwill simply because they don't understand the business etiquette, customs and traditions of the Asian country in which they operate or intend to operate.The Master Key to Asia is based on David Clive Price's experience of giving strategic communications advice to many Asian multinationals and of the challenges of setting up his own business in various Asian countries.This quick read 100-page book provides a step-by-step guide into the personal world of Asian business with Action Points and simple exercises to help the reader along the way.

* Eliminate cultural mistakes and blunders to raise performance

Views: 90 Replies: 5 All,After having read the FAQ and done a diligent search of the forums, I have not found anything that can satisfy a somewhat unique inquiry. That being said, I'll dip my toes in the FW water and see if my diligence was adequate enough (go easy on me!).I'll make this as brief as possible. First time home buyer. I'm a veteran and used my VA home loan to purchase a 170k house. Not having to put anything down (VA guaranteed loan terms) allowed me to not dip in to my emergency / savings accounts, and still have enough capital left to purchase appliances, paint the interior, make the house our "home", etc. After a home inspector gave us a positive report of the home, I was confident that very little work was required on my part with the home. Without going in to the absolutely crazy details, it turns out that this log home has significant log rot, water intrusion, drainage issues, dangerous chimney problems, and black mold infestation. The reason these things weren't detectable by myself was because the previous owner used log chinking to reshape rotted logs on the exterior of the home. On the interior, they installed dry wall over the log rot, mold, and termite damage. The drainage issues appear only after a hard rain. The chimney had a crack, but I was told it was a minor stress crack... turns out it's a thermal crack, rendering the chimney / fireplace useless. The roof leaks, among other things. While much of the damage and problems with the home were concealed intentionally by the previous owner (this is not assumption on my part... I actually found mold treatment products and scraps from the building material used to cover the damage in a locked shed on the property), the insurance claims adjuster told me that there are tell tale signs of issues with the home that the inspector should have caught and annotated in his report (which he didn't).Long story short; I haven't been in the house 2 months (haven't even made my first mortgage payment) and there is no way I can afford the repairs to the home. I've gotten a lawyer (an expensive one), filed a lawsuit, paid the legal fees upfront, and informed the Department of Veterans Affairs. I filed a claim with my lender (who told me to go pound sand), and got estimates for all of the repairs that need to be made to the home. The previous owner is being sued for breach of contract, intent to misrepresent the condition of real estate, and some other legalities. The inspector is being sued for negligence. The lawsuit could take a year. I have my third child on the way... due in 6 weeks. The house is not safe for my family, but the codes office will not condemn it without a positive lab test of the toxic variety of mold (which I cannot afford at the rate of 3 thousand dollars). I have already spent my emergency money and savings trying to make the house at least livable for the duration of the lawsuit, but I'm at the end of my money and there is still about 7 thousand dollars worth of work to be done before the baby gets here. I haven't even begun to purchase baby stuff for the "thirdling" yet. /sigh/Keeping the home is not an option. I cannot bring a baby back from the hospital into these conditions. If I get the things done needed to make the home livable, I will be so far in debt, that much of what I may or may not win in the lawsuit will go just to recouping those losses during this year waiting period. In the meantime, my house will still have giant holes straight through the rotted logs, moist conditions perfect for regrowth of mold, slowly worsening condition of the overall structure, making damages more costly by waiting.Don't get me wrong here... I am all about personal accountability as an investor. I made a contract with my lender, and under normal circumstances, I would hold my self to this obligation come hell or high water out of principle. However, I feel I did my due diligence in ensuring the home was to standard. I had a report from two inspectors / appraisers agreeing with the condition / value of the home. What was done by the previous owner was criminal. The inspector I originally hired was negligent in his job. The lender has told me that they cannot help out unless I legally prove breach of contract (essentially... "go through the lawsuit, then we may or may not help). The VA told me I'm not only out of luck with them, but that I'm screwed out of the VA Home Loan benefit now because the difference between the purchase price and actual value with the damage will come out of any future guarantee I try to get with them (basically, my benefit that I fought in Iraq for... is gone). Nobody wants a piece of this. I'm being told "tough stuff" anywhere I go, and now, I'm thinking my only option is to give the house back to the bank and foreclose on the house. The lender will most likely come after me for the difference in value versus the purchase price, which I will be trying to get out of the previous owner and original home inspector in the lawsuit.Am I missing something here? I've been researching every possible avenue from here, and it looks like I'm just up a creek. I've budgeted for every possible outcome and there is simply no way to keep the home and not pay a ton of money up front without the risk of losing the home anyway (because I cannot afford it). The urgency comes from the house being unsafe, not being able to run the air conditioner (mold in the unit / ducts / basement /etc.) while my pregnant wife and children are in this Southern July heat, and a baby making landing in 6 weeks... with no money left over... period. I'm still active duty military, but just found out I'm being medically discharged. So on a relatively crummy paycheck (compared to what I was making in the civilian world), with potential loss of employment... am I overlooking a way around / out of this? I've researched the laws and contract front to back, top to bottom. My lawyer gets back in town in a few days, but when I approach him with the idea of walking out on the home, I want to be armed with sound FINANCIAL advice so that I can consider the legal stuff and make good decisions based on both aspects of this issue.Please no patronizing or flaming... I'm really looking for any sort of realistic analysis from money smart, experienced folks... and I'm already having a hard enough time with this. Your time in reviewing this ridiculously long post is GREATLY appreciated and of the utmost value to me. Thank you.

Views: 156 Replies: 4 So many people that preach and post here keep the 3-6 months emergency fund. I have a family member that does the same but for the financially savvy it is an absolute waste. Every time I hear of someone doing this I cringe because they are losing to inflation every year and losing out on stock market returns. I keep enough cash for a month tops. That's it. My effort has allowed me to maximize my investment return on all my funds. This process assumes that you are "good with money" and have decent credit. My strategy is simple, pay down what you owe. Use credit and retirement as your cushion.When I was young and broke, my emergency fund was: Roth IRA contributions, and HELOC. Why keep an emergency fund when you can withdraw Roth contributions without penalty? Why put off putting in your Roth for that perceived safety? Even if the market tanks 50% (worst case) you can still liquidate that and have it in three days. If you don't need it, you get market returns. If it is short term, draw on a HELOC (assuming you own a house with more than 80% ltv), that interest is deductible vs the car loan/cc that is not. Why keep an emergency fund when you have debt that is any percentage points higher than your savings? Honestly, in a worst case catastrophe (medical, being sued, etc) you want your funds in a Roth vs cash because retirement is protected by law. 20-50K cash is a lot easier to go after.Now I get that people do have debt, but it is silly to keep an emergency fund when you have credit. If I have 10K in credit at 9% potential interest and 10K in savings (1%) and 10K in student loans at 6%, why would I not use the funds to pay off the student loans and live paycheck to paycheck for a while while rebuilding my cash (but putting it in investments)? You are "earning" 4% after tax on your 10K monthly. When you have some savings: Stocks/MF's are liquid. I can sell whatever I want and have the money in hand in three days. Aside from a kidnapping this is plenty fast to accomplish anything in the real world. Again if I need cash, use the HELOC (find one with no fees) for the short term and everyone takes CC. I just don't get it, people will chase a 1/4 point on a mortgage @250K or 1/4 point on savings but will leave 50-100K in a savings/MM account earning 1% or less. With say 5% average market returns you are "losing" your entire mortgage interest deduction of 250K after chasing that 1/4 point.Figure with the rule of 7, the 25K that you have in an emergency fund is losing ~20K every 7 years. I'm not saying I do everything right, I paid off a 4.5% mortgage in 2009 for the "peace of mind" when I should have continues to float it on 0% and invest (or keep the 4.5% note and invest), but if you told me to keep the cash in a 1% account, I would rather just keep it under the bed and roll around in it once in a while. Use the tools that our system provides rather than listening to the archaic advice of the simpletons. Using the tools allows you to get ahead faster and cheaper.

Views: 0 Replies: 0 I thank you to those willing to read my story here. Sorry if its long but I feel its necessary to explain the deal.I have a BS in mechanical engineering from a major state university, not any type of elite school.
I worked in consulting HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection design for 6.5 years. It was a small 8 person firm with no upside. I became bored and tired of it so I left that.I then moved to a manufacturing company working as an applications engineer for now 2.5 years.
This role has a lot more going on.
In this job my duties are:
directly interact with customers who reach out to us for new designs. I design, price, quote, and sell sealing solutions for high performance high demand industries.
I also work with ouside sales guys who chase bigger customers and bring in bigger opportunities. I then design and sell them solutions as well.
For even bigger opportunities, heavy engineering gets involved for FEA analysis and development. In this cases I then have to manage the project along its path, and ultimately quote and sell, and be the middle man between the manufacturing team, and the outside sales guys/customers.
I have to deal with all departments in the building from purchasing, manufacturing, safety, EH&S, sales, operations, etc.
Also, when there are problems with making one of my designs I have to deal with, coordinate, and push people to resolve the problems internally.
When customers have a problem I have to work with them to resolve it, ranging from redesigning, to working through their usage and conditions to ensure they are using the products correctly.
We are tasked with ensuring we get proper margins on our pricing, winning the business, making everyone inside "Want" to work with me and help, and also making the outside guys happy and making them "want" to work with us.Its a LOT. I deal with customers in Europe, asia, all over the US, Canada, etc etc. My biggest strength is technical understanding and cmprehension, and I'm able to apply that in my work.My biggest weakness is that I'm not a brown noser, and sometimes I'm just not in the mood to "shoot the crap" with a customer, or smile and chat the customer up when I'm not happy. I mean by that, I'm just not an "always on" sales guy type.I like to be very realistic, and honest. I don't get off on designing something marginal because I dont want to fight a problem with it later, so when someone brings a questionable application, I get acused of being more of a "cannot" than a "yes" man.With that said, I'm pretty comfortable speaking in front of a crowd. Doesn't really bother me cause I'm confident I know my subject. I'm interested in changing again. I'm thinking about jobs outside engineering as well.
However, I'm not sure what type of jobs to go after outside o engineering.I've read that finance companies and banks hire engineers but I'm not sure for what type of jobs to look at. These articals I've read that these types of businesses love the analytical strength of engineers, but I havn't read for what type of jobs they would hire me for.If its relavent, I'm very interested in building some web businesses, and I've been working to have two sites up over the last 10 months, however, I do not have time to really focus attention there as I need to. I've considered looking for a part time contract job draftsman if it pays well enough so that I could work 20-30 hours a week and then focus on my sites. (if that type job is possible).
I'm married now, and could join my wifes benefits, but I need to make significant money until we get her student loans and our cars paid off. So, not working to focus on my businesses is not an option yet.I've considered a 1 year program to become a "big data scientist", but not sure if I want to focus a year there, and not focus on my web projects, or to focus on web projects and just work somewhere now in engineering, or an alternate line of work. I live in the southeast, 2 hours from charlotte, and my wife just took a great job at a school here so I'm not looking to move right now.Thoughts are welcome here now.

Ashes Ashes the Twins Fall Down: Twin Towers, 9/11 [Kindle Edition]Pauline L. Hawkins (Author)http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008CPXMWSPublication Date: June 15, 2012Publisher: Anole12 Reviews ★★★★#1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > History > Americas > United States > State & Local > Mid-Atlantic9/11: The Day That Defined a GenerationWhere were you on 9/11? That question has become part of the fabric of our lives as Americans. On that bright, sunny day, none of us had any idea what was in store and how it would change our lives. Depending on what part of the country you lived in, you may not have known anything was going on until several hours after the first plane struck. You may not have heard the news until you got to work, turned on your car radio, or received a call from a loved one asking if you had seen or heard the news. Ashes Ashes the Twins Fall Down is a look at the events of 9/11 from personal and informational perspectives. Author, Pauline Hawkins, who lived in Texas at the time of the attacks, shares her experience of 9/11, and its repercussions for her family, her job, and how she viewed the world. Paulines story of coping with the news, reframing how she thought about America and the world, and making a conscious decision to become better-informed will resonate with anyone who lived through 9/11. In addition to her personal testimony, Pauline provides a thought-provoking context for the events of 9/11, including political background, social commentary, and reflections on the contributions of everyday heroes. Youll come away from this book both enlightened and comforted by Paulines honesty and common sense, as well as her heartfelt appreciation of those who sacrificed for our country, and those who continue to work toward healing and rebuilding.From the Author
When I sat down to actually write this book, my expectation was simply to put a few words on paper to work through my own grieving process for 9/11. However, I soon found out that the more I said, the more I had to say. Once I started writing, it was as though the emotional floodgates opened, and all the memories came back -- memories that beckoned to be put on paper. I soon realized that while everyone talked about what happened in New York, at the Pentagon, and in the field in Pennsylvania, very little had been said about how that day affected those of us outside of those areas. An entire country, and world, were affected that day. Lives were changed, security lost, and our story should be shared as well. My hope is that you will find this book not only enjoyable but also informative and thought-provoking. I truly have enjoyed sitting down and sharing on these pages my experiences associated with 9/11 and the days and years following.

Technical Analysis of Gaps: Identifying Profitable Gaps for Trading [Kindle Edition] was $35.99Julie Dahlquist (Author), Richard J. Bauer (Author) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0089EM3GIPublication Date: June 5, 2012Publisher: FT Press23 Reviews ★★★.5#1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Business & Investing > Investing > StocksGaps have attracted the attention of market technicians from the earliest days of charting. Theyre not merely conspicuous: they represent price jumps that could signal profitable trading opportunities. Until now, however, "folklore" about gap trading has been common, and tested, research-based knowledge virtually nonexistent. In Technical Analysis of Gaps, renowned technical analysis researchers Julie Dahlquist and Richard Bauer change all that. Drawing on 60 years of comprehensive data, they demonstrate how to sort "strategic" gaps from trivial ones, and successfully trade on gaps identified as significant. Building on work that recently earned them the Market Technicians Associations 2011 Charles H. Dow Award for creativity and innovation in technical analysis, Dahlquist and Bauer offer specific gap-related trading tips for stocks, futures, and options. They consider a wide variety of market conditions, including gap size, volume and previous price movement, illuminating their findings with easy-to-understand diagrams. Coverage includes: understanding what gaps are and how they arise; recognizing windows on candlestick charts; identifying gaps with superior profit potential; combining gaps with other technical techniques for a more complete and effective analysis; and putting it all together with real trading strategies. For stock, commodity, and currency traders in the U.S. and worldwide, and for active individual investors seeking new ways to maximize returns.About the AuthorJulie R.

Are Condo monthly maintence fees/ common charges a waste?
Added on : Tuesday July 02nd 2013 06:00:06 AM
I was talking to a fellow fatwallet member about my plans to buy a condo. He advised that it was a bad move as the monthly maintenance fees are a total waste and it can never be recouped. I agree with his point to some degree. However, I feel that as long as the fees aren't too low or too high the owner will benefit. Too high and no one will buy the place when you try to resell (less appreciation). Too low and the building isn't maintained properly, which also hurts resale and the rental market in the building and neighborhood to a lessor extent. Most of these buildings have doormen. I'm not sure how this affects appreciation in the long run. If anyone else has a better understanding of how these fees affect appreciation I would like to hear your thoughts.
Moods and Markets: A New Way to Invest in Good Times and in Bad (Minyanville Media) [Kindle Edition] was $39.99Peter Atwater (Author) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008J8RCTWPublication Date: July 6, 2012Publisher: FT Press25 Reviews ★★★★#6 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Business & Investing > Finance > Finance & Investing#6 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Nonfiction > Professional & Technical > Accounting & Finance > FinanceLeading consultant and Minyanville contributor Peter Atwater has helped institutional investors, corporations and policymakers map changing social moods to emerging market shifts, and use that knowledge to identify huge new market opportunities. Now, Atwater shows you how to use the same powerful Horizon PreferenceTM approach to select your own high-performance investments. Utilizing what is often in plain sight, but overlooked and underestimated, Horizon Preference helps you understand how we narrow our physical, time and relationship horizons to the "local" in bad times, and widen them to the "global" in better times and then translate that knowledge into better investment decisions. Atwaters Moods and Markets offers powerful new insights into everything from market bubbles to the real challenges of making mergers work why "farm to table" and "locavore" movements are booming now, and whats likely to happen next why Americans now want to rent homes even though its become far more affordable to buy them why the "Arab Spring" is bullish, and higher education is in deep trouble which businesses prosper in a downturn, which prosper most in an upturn and why. This book will be an invaluable resource for every serious investor, trader, and money manager.Peter Atwater has used his exclusive Horizon Preference approach to help top asset managers, major endowments, and hedge funds map changes in social moods to shifts in the markets and to identify huge new market opportunities. Now, he shows serious investors how to use the same powerful techniques these top global investors already rely on.  Building on insights from Elliott Wave Theory and Robert Prechters work in socionomics, Moods and Markets shows how we naturally narrow our physical, time, and relationship horizons to the local in bad times and widen them to the global in better times. Atwaters easy-to-understand framework helps investors quickly identify the direction of social mood and the markets using readily available, but frequently overlooked, clues from the world around us. To Atwater there is no coincidence to the Occupy Wall Street movement, The Hunger Games, Downton Abbey, farm-to-table dining, and the rise of Facebook with our volatile stock markets today. Moods and Markets explains why.  Through numerous recent real-life examples, readers will gain deeper insights into short- and long-term investment trends in virtually every key market sector. Along the way, Atwater helps you to identify the consistent mood-based characteristics of market turning points that dont show up in conventional analysisand that can disastrously impact your portfolio if you miss them.  Moods and Markets explains: The difference between mood and emotionand why mood matters more How to use mood to identify significant market tops and bottoms How changing moods drive public sector decisions that impact your portfolio Todays market mood and where we may be headedand how to decide for yourself
About the AuthorPeter Atwater is President of Financial Insyghts, a consulting firm providing advice to institutional investors, major corporations, and global policymakers on how social mood affects decision making, the economy, and the markets. A pioneer in securitization and a long-time financial services executive, through Moods and Markets, Peter brings his innovative social mood-based thinking to the world of investing. A regular contributor to Minyanville, Peters work on social mood and decision making has been featured in The Socionomist, Time Magazine, and The Financial Times.

Death by China: Confronting the Dragon - A Global Call to Action [Kindle Edition] was $25.99Peter W. Navarro (Author), Greg Autry (Author)
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004GXB41GPublication Date: May 5, 2011Publisher: Prentice Hall Professional119 Reviews ★★★★

This is the eBook version of the printed book.Bestselling author Peter Navarro (The Coming China Wars) and Greg Autry challenges the dominant paradigm of a "Chinese Miracle" - the one featuring a modernizing, progressive Chinese state heading toward political reform and driving global economic growth with its new found embrace of capitalism and freedom.
Tearing this delusion away, Death by China documents the myriad ways that a powerful, wealthy, and corrupt Chinese Communist Party emboldened by a growing nationalistic frenzy is becoming the biggest threat to global peace, prosperity, and health since Nazi Germany.
From currency manipulation and abusive trade policies, to slave labor and deadly consumer products, China's ruthless rulers threaten the livelihood of the citizens of every developed nation. These thugs have created a frightening amoral society ruled by a constant fear hidden to outsiders and bought off with the ill gotten profits of a myopic quest for economic advantage at any cost - social, environmental, or civil rights concerns be damned. Worse, as with everything else, China is scaling and exporting the model around this world, threatening their neighbors and exploiting developing nations across the globe with a new imperialism.
While America worries that Al Qaeda or Iran may get their hands on a weapon of mass destruction, China is using our Wal-Mart dollars to build them by the score; filling brand new nuclear submarines with missiles aimed at our heartland and building stealth planes designed to obliterate our friends in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan.
America's policy of appeasement and perpetual bending to Beijing's tacit threat to stop funding our unsustainable consumption based economy and deficit addicted government has left the Chinese people and the world in a frightening position while achieving absolutely nothing. With each new attempt at further "engagement" China simply rounds up more artists, writers, and political dissidents into its gulags and continues its policies of virtual genocide against the peoples of Tibet and the Uighars of East Turkestan. It tightens control over media and the Internet and expands its regional, territorial and resource claims. Laughing at our timidity, it becomes ever bolder in executing its plan to shutter every last manufacturing plant in the West.
Meanwhile, Western turncoat CEO's are content with pumping up one more quarterly report by driving every last high-value manufacturing jobs to Guangzhou or Chengdu. Congress is happy to be re-elected with contributions from those same corporations. Together they are happy to leave the rest of us with a future of low paying service and retail "careers" based on selling junk made in China to each other while accumulating a pile of Chinese debt and building a geopolitical time bomb of epic proportions.
For every American, European, Japanese or Korean reader who wonders where his job has gone and worries about the world his children will inherit, Death by China is a must read. The book features an inspiring Forward by Chinese Dissident, Baiqiao Tang and a brilliant Epilog by Congressman Dana Rohrabacher.About the Author

How I would go about learning finance today if I was a newbieI've been getting this more and more in my own private life and via PM on here(and a long response just accidentally deleted broke the camels back on me answering it piecemeal).Obviously depending on where you're at already would determine where you would probably want to hop in.It's my belief that most people should follow some pattern like this:
1) They see something in the space that captures their attention and interests them
2) Learn the basic building blocks like time value of money(and get good at it on excel), basic bond valuation, basic macro/micro, etc.
3) Pick up regular financial habit like reading a particular financial news site or show on TV. It just has to be something that interests you enough to be able to keep up with it. This one is very important since most people aren't going to be able to 'crash course' enough information in large blocks of dense reading to really get that far. In most cases it's the regular stuff that really gets someone up there.
4) The real great thing is using google, wikipedia, and investopedia to look up something you don't quite understand every time it comes up from those regular financial habits. See nobody really has the attention span to jump from constant wikipedia entries to more entries. Instead it's the occasional article with some term you don't know much about that spawns a few dense readings that is pretty bearable.
5) Then supplement all of this with the occasional book focused on some particular subject matter that interests you in a more dense fashion.List of many of my financial site bookmarks
Aggregation:
-Street Sleuth probably the best financial news aggregator online that has the last handful of headlines from numerous online sources, many of whom are listed below
-RealClearMarkets Very good focused aggregator of financial news sort of like a Drudgereport of financial news for the day
-Finviz News Besides being quite likely the best free stock screener online Finviz has pretty decent rolling news aggregator
-Then obviously google and yahoo financial news although it's pretty sub par unless you use specific keyword searches into their news search engine.Main general publications:
-Wall Street Journal needs no introduction, WSJ allows a person coming from Google to get by the pay wall a certain number of times a day so if you see an article you want to read just search it's title and you can get past the pay wall
-Financial Times
-CNBC
-Bloomberg
-Businessweek
-Forbes
-Barrons
-NYT Business
-Reuters Business
-Investors Business Daily
-CNN Money
-Fortune Mag(CNN money)
This list is really quite endless and the interesting this is that you'll basically get all of the same information from each of these places because they all rely on the wires to determine content minus maybe a few idiotic personal finance pieces thrown in as filler.Specialized and Original WorkGeneral Dense:
-Zerohedge Despite some of the more apocalyptic postings from some of the staff and very weird comment community they do quite often produce some of the best work in the business
-Dealbreaker A little more 'inter workings' focused news site for original content with a little bit of comedic side of shoveling $hit at key Wall Street players in a TMZ fashion
-Dealbook(nyt) Basically an advanced financial news site for industry professionals
-Market Folly Not particularly high volume, but good valuable information you wont find too many other places. Their weekly "hedge fund links" is usually a great source of info.
-Motley Fool Not particularly more advanced than your typical news site
-247 Wall Street Same as aboveInternational English:
-Globe and Mail Investor
-Spiegel Business
-South China Morning Post Business
-Arabian Business
-African Business News DigitalGeneral Econ:
-The Economist More high brow
-Mish's Global Economic Analysis More low brow
-A lot of this is covered in the general news section otherwise the next place is to go to the think tank publications like Cato, Brookings, etc. depending on the persuasion your after(my quick dig: fyi in this area Krugman doesn't really count since practically all of the think tanks out there actually do real work except him).Trading/Investing News:
-Seeking Alpha Primary utility to me has been their aggregation of company conference calls
-Value Walk Value focused news site
-Value Investors Club Value focused research community
-Wall St. Cheat Sheet Stock specific news and useful earnings report cliff notes
-The Street Even though it's Jim Cramer's baby it has become a bigger player in stock news so it deserves to be mentionedUseful Trading Investment Tools, Research, etc.:
-Zacks Probably best free equity research site
-Morningstar Best free mutual fund and ETF research and info online
-ETF Database Good ETF screener and source of lists
-Finviz Probably the best free stock screener online
-Firecalc Best free historical and/or monte carlo simulator online
-MSN Money Great for stock research particularly in their interactive graphing, historical revenue and income numbers, and tracking of earnings estimates.
-Google Finance Mostly for equity research. Laid out well, but pretty similar to what else you'll see.
-Yahoo Finance Really yahoo key statistics is really all that is left that I like about of habit I still yahoo to look up SEC filings. Places like MSN have mostly beaten them in all the other areas. They have their message boards as a semi unique offering, but those have mostly become a joke.
-Quantum Online Good outfit for researching things like Preferreds
-Big Charts Really nice interactive charts. Great because you can easily customize date ranges, have dividend dates appear on the map, even include the number of news stories for each day, etc. pretty useful
-Earnings Whispers Good source of information on guidance, changes in earnings expectations prior to an earnings release, etc.
-Conference Call Transcripts A search engine for transcripts of company conference calls
-ZenWealth Time Value of Money Calc FYI it defaults to type 0 for payments which means that it assumes end of period payment
-Stock Mapper Mostly just a cool heat map type of site for how the NYSE is doing at any point of the day. Provides a great visual plus it's pretty to look at.
-Citron Research These guys do some pretty damn good short focused researchTech, Angel/Venture Capital, etc.:
-Venture Beat Financial news site for start ups
-Tech Crunch Financial news site for start ups
-Finovate Site for financial start ups. Can watch many of the pitches onlineFollowing Key Financial Investors/Hedge Fund Managers/etc.:
-Financial Titan Thread FWF thread I started covering many famous financial figures
-GuruFocus Site dedicated to following the actions of famous investors
-Hedge Fund Letters A site dedicated to being a depository of letters to investors from various hedge funds. Not particularly up to date on many of them they cover.
-Name.Blogspot One gentlemen has a created a list of blogs for famous financiers and updates new information quite regularly. This one is devoted to Kyle Bass, but if you look in the lower right you'll see other ones this individual follows and posts on.
-Titan Search Query 1 One of 3 search queries I run for a list of names. From there I go to search tools and specify a period of time(maybe 1 month or 1 week) and just look at the recent results mentioning these people. I also go to videos to see if they've done any recent video interviews or presentations
-Titan Search Query 2 Same as before just another list of names.
-Titan Search Query 3 Same as the prior 2Financial Documentaries/Media/Online Class
-Financial Documentaries
-Top Documentaries Go to the Economics section
-Coursera Site for free online courses taught by good professors from top schools
-MIT OpenCourseWare Can look at the course notes of any financial or accounting class you likeTax Information:
-Fairmark Probably the best online source for new tax info out that I know of
-PWC 2013 Tax Planning GuideBooks(note I have a high preference for audiobook so I only *read* a whole book if I think it's worth it):
-The Intelligent Investor
-Security Analysis 6th edition
-Snowball: Warren Buffett
-Berkshire Hathaway Letters to Shareholders (you can actually get all of these online and avoid the book)
-Market Wizards, New Market Wizards, Hedge Fund Market Wizards
-Wilmott's Reading List I probably wouldn't trust anyone more than Wilmott to provide a solid reading list for those that want to look at more advanced books
-Wiley Finance Otherwise if looking at solid financial textbooks today I would mostly stick to what is published by Wiley.Audiobooks(slim pickings out there in good finance books most are the more entertaining sort):
-Liar's Poker
-The Big Short
-Boomerang
-Fools Gold: JP Morgan
-House of Cards: Bear Stearns
-Crash of the Titans: Merrill and BofA
-All the Devils are Here
-The Match King: Ivar Kreuger
-The Dark Genius of Wall Street: Jay Gould
-Den of Thieves: Drexel Burnham Lambert
-King of Capital: Schwarzman
Specifically What Kind of Program Would I Probably Put Someone on That was Interested1) Watch "The Ascent of Money"2) Watch "Commanding Heights: Battle for the World Economy"(probably the biggest list of key world figures taking part in one documentary ever made)3) Seek out a basic understanding of the following concepts(via google, wikipedia, investopedia, or a class on coursera or MIT OCW):
a) Time Value on Money calculations: Should set a goal to get pretty good on multi step calculations on excel
b) Key assets: Coupon bonds, zero coupon bonds, convertible bonds, preferred shares, common stocks, and shares in pass through entities such as Master Limited Partnerships and Real Estate Investment Trusts.
c) Collections of exchange traded assets: ETFs, mutual funds, index funds, etc.
d) Trade execution: Bid, ask, long vs. short, market order vs. limit order, stop loss(don't use), trailing stop loss(don't use)
e) More complicated assets/derivatives: Call option, put option, asset backed security/mortgage backed security.
f) How call and put options operate from the perspective of the seller or buyer to the point they could draw an options return profile themselves.
g) Bond valuation
h) How to read financial statements(income statement, balance sheet, cash flows) knowledge of how to write up journal entries not required.4) Pick up some regular financial habit(s). The list above should provide plenty of options. If I were to suggest a couple I would say:
a) Street Sleuth for a while. You'll eventually start to notice you navigating to particular sites on Street Sleuth, but at first it's a great place to see what headlines grab your attention.
b) Real Clear Markets. Content is just nice and balanced. Good mix of basic and more advanced. Good mix of bullish and bearish work. Good mix of the main news for the day with some of the less talked about stuff. Just a very well designed news site.
c) Whatever else listed above interests you. WSJ is a good choice. So is Zerohedge and Dealbreaker. Snagging video from the financial titan search queries are really interesting as well.5) I would then supplement that with some reading.
-The Intelligent Investor
and
-Security Analysis
are probably the most ideal starting points
This is all I've got for tonight I might add more later on. I'm sure I forgot a bunch and it's getting late.

LINKMicro Guides are ideal for reduced weight and increased castability. Characterized by their miniscule insert rings, Micro Guides are very possibly the biggest innovation since the Fuji Concept System in the late 1990s. Although small super light weight guides arent new to the fishing rod industry as they had been being used quite extensively in the 80s and 90s in Europe for carp rods. The main difference in todays guides are that they are the lowest possible frames and smallest rings available for the application the end user has in mind.

Forward/Freedom/it/Amazon for a College Senior
Added on : Sunday June 23rd 2013 06:00:04 PM
Lurker here crawling out from under a rock...I'm trying to build a solid credit foundation and now looking to add one or more credit cards now that my existing paid-in-full accounts have aged for awhile. Most of my spending goes towards Amazon and restaurants, and I would like to maximize the rewards I can earn on those categories. I am an authorized user on my father's Chase card which has helped start my credit report, and I'm hoping now it can act as a foot in the door for individual Chase cards. I think the Citi Forward for college students has the best rewards, but I'm worried about redeeming the points at a decent rate (I have no loans/mortgages) and that Citi seems to be phasing out the Forward. Whichever cards I get now I plan to keep for as long as possible, while building a permanent relationship with the card's bank. What would you do in my shoes?

I got a home under contract and got it inspected the other day. Attached is the finding of the inspector. Being a first time owner I do not know what is reasonable to ask the seller, so fwf gurus please chime in! There are a lot of other minor issues which we can fix on our own so I didnt add them here. Sorry for the wall of text Exterior Doors
One or more screens were missing at the sliding exterior doors. Recommend checking with the current owner.Report Section: Building Exterior II Roof - The sellers claim the roof to be newer. Inspector claims it to be less than 5 years old.
Surface Material(s)
Asphalt or Fiberglass Shingles: Areas of the roofing were noted to be pushed up, apparently from movement of the sheathing under the shingles.Report Section: Building Exterior III Garage
Garage Interior
One or more openings and/or non-fire rated materials on the walls and/or ceiling were noted that are a breach of the common firewall. These openings could allow a garage fire to quickly migrate into main structure. Proper correction is recommended for personal safety.
One or more openings at the walls and/or ceiling were noted. These openings could allow hazardous carbon monoxide or other gasses or fumes to migrate into the home. Proper correction is strongly recommended for personal safety.Service Door(s)
Service Door to Building/Home: The service door from the garage to the building interior is not well sealed in the opening which may allow polluted air from garage to enter the living area of the building. Recommend adding proper weatherstripping and/or replacement with a properly fitting fire-rated door.Report Section: Building Interior IV Rooms - The house is completely renovated.

Insulation at the exterior basement walls at several areas, recommend replacement where missing.Report Section: Structure Elements XI Attic
Insulation appeared to be loose and or missing in some areas of the attic space(s). Recommend adding insulation to achieve a consistent total depth of 12 inches (the current standard). This will provide improved energy efficiency and cost savings.
There was little or no insulation on the attic hatch cover. We suggest adding a proper amount of insulation to eliminate excessive heat loss through the hatch.Other Exhaust Fan(s): The bathroom exhaust fan(s) appeared to vent into the attic space.

What to expect while buying a home? (first time homeowner)
Added on : Thursday June 20th 2013 06:00:13 AM
The property I'm looking to buy has an assessment of $74k for the land and building. The zipcode in which the home resides values houses at an average of $78k. The zEstimated value of the home is currently $63.5k and the home is listed on the market at $59.9k.^ I'm not sure if the above information helps at all. Basically I want to know what to expect in terms of buying a house for the first time in terms of finances. Assuming I wouldn't need a mortgage, what would be a fair estimate as to how much out of pocket based on spending $59.9k?Also, I know the market for homes is at an all time high since people can't afford their homes and foreclose, or simply move. Therefore since there are a lot of houses for sale on the market, what would be a fair offer to give the homeowner for their home? Is there any FatWallet tricks to save me any money in this process?Any help/tips would be appreciated! Lots of green to those that help!
CC Compay: "We Want to See You Can Manage Large Balances"
Added on : Thursday June 20th 2013 06:00:12 AM
Hello all-I am seeking a bit of real world advice regarding building my credit profile. I have a limited credit history (~2.5 years), but have always used the credit I've been extended responsibly. Currently, my FICO is at 765. I have five cards with a total CL of $24,750. In addition to the revolving card accounts, I have three student loans that have been paid in full. I've always paid my cards in full each month and ba r no negative information on my credit report. Now to my question- how do many of the members here achieve such high credit limits? I understand some comes from automatic and requested increases from the issuer and income can also play a role. Besides maintaining a low credit utilization ratio (which I do anyway), there is no practical reason that I would need higher credit limits than I do now. It just feels good knowing a lender would trust me with higher limits. Yesterday I applied for the Barclaycard Arrival card in order to take advantage of the decent sign up bonus. I was approved instantly online for a $5k CL. Out of curiosity, I called the recon line to see if I could get a higher CL. The analyst was very polite and looked over my credit report. She said everything looked great and commended me for using credit wisely. When she began looking at the balances I carry, however, her attitude changed a bit. I really don't spend much on my cards, maybe $1200/mo. She said that although I had high credit limits with other lenders and no negative information, I had not demonstrated that I can actually manage a higher credit limit since I never post a balance near any of my limits. Has anyone ever heard of this? I recall that many individuals believe ~10% utilization is the "sweet spot", but can not using credit that has been made available to you hurt your chances of being offered more credit? If so, what can I do to overcome that? Would churning a card actually benefit someone on this situation? Thanks!
SF 'landlords from hell' plead guilty to felonies
Added on : Wednesday June 19th 2013 02:00:17 PM
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) A couple that prosecutors dubbed the "landlords from hell" for going to scary lengths to drive tenants from a San Francisco apartment building have pleaded guilty to several felonies.Prosecutors said Wednesday that 37-year-old Nicole Macy and 38-year-old Kip Macy threatened to shoot tenants, changed locks, cleared apartments of belongings, and sawed holes in floors. They say it was all to drive renters out of their building in the increasingly pricey South of Market neighborhood.The Macys each pleaded guilty to two felony counts of residential burglary, stalking and attempted grand theft. http://www.seattlepi.com/news/crime/article/SF-landlords-from-he...Sounds like some of the FW slum lords that post here. All perfectly legal here in Texas.

#13 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Business & Investing > InvestingW.D. Ganns works helped to pioneer the discipline of technical analysis, and they still offer immense potential value to investors and traders. However, Ganns original publications are esoteric and can be challenging to read and use. In this book, long-time trader and expert technical analyst Hima Reddy brings these works to life for modern traders and investors. She distills Ganns tenets into crystal-clear, bite-size explanations, and illuminates them with exceptionally intuitive charts and illustrations. Drawing on extensive personal experience, Reddy explains how Ganns insights into price, pattern and time can be applied in all types of markets and market conditions. Using this book, any experienced trader can discover the value of Ganns approach, and start utilizing it in his or her own trades. Then, with Reddys discussion as a foundation, traders and investors can delve even more deeply into all of Ganns works, identifying even greater opportunities for profit.About the Author
Hima Reddy, CMT, was first introduced to technical analysis, and to the works of W.D. Gann, during her high school years by her father, who has had a passion for trading and the markets since the early 1980s. However, it wasnt until after she completed an undergraduate Finance degree at Indiana Universitys Kelley School of Business, and returned to her home state of New York in 2001, that she immersed herself in the markets. She simultaneously volunteered as a sponsorship coordinator for several Market Technicians Association conferences, traded equity and commodity futures under the tutelage and guidance of her father, and completed the Chartered Market Technician certification. In 2006, she joined Informa Global Markets, an independent financial research firm providing live, 24-hour market analysis. As Senior Technical Analyst, she was responsible for producing timely and accurate short-term technical analysis and trading strategies for fixed income and FX markets. With analysis ranging through multiple timeframes, her team also prepared written updates covering longer-term trends. Himas guru has always been Gannthe first market analysis book she ever studied in-depth was How to Make Profits in Commoditiesand to this day that is her go-to guide to the markets. Since 2011 she has returned to trading independently and continues to write about the financial markets. Her primary methods of technical analysis include pattern recognition and time duration relationships within markets based on Ganns methodology, momentum assessment through the use of the Relative Strength Index (RSI), Fibonacci relationships, and moving average systems including the use of channels for trade management. Hima now resides with her husband in Baltimore, Maryland.

School me about building a new vacation house
Added on : Saturday June 15th 2013 09:00:12 AM
Here's the relevant details:1. Purchased two plots in a vacation community I summer at regularly. The community is distant from where I live. Paid all cash for the land. Houses in the community can readily be rented out during the summer weeks, which I consider a plus, but the main reason I bought is that I enjoy the community and it is near to other family members I seldom see.2. So far I've talked to a modular builder and a stick builder, as well as a nationwide homebuilding company which I rejected offhand. I'll talk to another stick builder later next week. Both of the stick builders are long-time residents of the community and have a good history of houses and renovations there. The modular builder is perhaps an hour's drive away, but has also been in business a while with a decent reputation from what I can tell.3. Trust in the builder is key as I will NOT be present to watch or inspect the house as it is built over this winter. The community has mild architectural review requirements, and the local stick builders have an advantage in that they've dealt with the committee dozens of times are know quite well what would and would not work. 4. Despite being more distant, the modular builder has been very persistent to get my business, even travelling out to the lot to have a look and make recommendations. The modular man has been super fast to respond to my questions and emails, something I consider important. Questions --1. How much contract negotiations is typical with a modular builder? I don't have much basis for comparison but the quote the modular builder has given me seems rather high. But they seem open to negotiation, not unlike a car dealer.2. How many quotes do you typically get for this kind of a project? There is a finite amount of time I have. 3. Financing. I read with interest this post asking about financing with 0% credit cards and a 401K loan. I could do that; I don't have a lot of cash on hand but extensive retirement savings and a stable job. On the other hand, a bank construction loan would provide some outside verification that each stage of the construction has been completed and verify that subcontractors have been paid and no mechanic's liens on property. Any creative way to finance this or verify when work has been done?4. Any other words of advice, things to look for in a construction contract?Thanks.
