Learning How to Save, Retire and Manage Personal Finance

Views: 125 Replies: 4 Hi all! I love this forum and try to visit it often as there seems to be a good pool of knowledgeable users. I've posted a few topics here and have received some great advice, a lot of which I did not take. I was recently looking at my 401k balances and really don't understand what is best for me or what it even means. This is what I know:
26.29% POST-86 SIP $23,928.47 $23,928.47 100% 20.29% EMPLOYER NONMATCHING CON $18,467.86 $18,467.86 100% 20.25% EMPLOYER MATCH $18,432.93 $18,432.93 100% 19.01% ROTH 401K $17,305.90 $17,305.90 100% 14.17% 401K $12,895.22 $12,895.22 100%
With a total 401k balance of $91,030.38. A little background on my other finances:

29 y/o engaged with $80k salary in Chicago (salary has been steadily increasing 5-10% since I started out of college with the same company)
$8k in savings earning 1% APR
$0 credit card debt
$6.4k car loan at 2.99% fixed
$36k student loans under 3% APR variable
$100/month into a Roth IRA (started today)

I spoke with a Fidelity representative who runs the 401k account and she suggested immediately opening up a Roth IRA, even if it means $100/month. She mentioned opening up a Roth IRA starts some sort of 5 year clock that is a qualifier for withdrawing money? Can anyone elaborate?

I have also read a good benchmark is to have 1X your salary by age 30 which I have been able to reach that goal. Given that, would anyone recommend maybe putting less into my 401k and putting more into my Roth IRA?

Finally, I will have a few major expenses coming in the next 2-3 years. I would like to be able to put a down payment on a modest priced house (~200-250K) and more immediately like in the next year, come up with $15k for a wedding. Sorry guys, I don't think my fiancee is going to accept a true FW wedding and if you guys aren't aware, 15k is on the low end for a wedding! Ridiculous!

I don't think its worthwhile to attack my car loan or my student loans given the APR. Any help, guidance, advice, articles would be of great help. Thank you all very much for your time.

Tribune staff report 8:08 a.m. CDT, June 13, 2014 P.F.

The company said it is not sure how many customers were affected, but has issued the security notice after concluding its data had been compromised. P.F. Changs said it has asked the U.S. Secret Service and a third-party vendor for help in determining the scope of the breech."Because we are still in the preliminary stages of our investigation, we encourage our guests to be vigilant about checking their credit card and bank statements," the company said in on its website Friday. "We sincerely regret the inconvenience and concern this may cause for our guests."The restaurants will take manual imprints of credit cards, common before electronic swiping, while its investigation continuesThe company has created a website, pfchangs.com/security, for customers to receive updates and answers to their questions.

This really is the best available guide on whats free or how to get it for free -- in the best City in the world.
When I first moved to New York, I was so broke I couldnt pay attention. I had no choice but to seek out all thats great and free in the big city. It was all right there in front of me, and I wasnt going to let it pass me by just because I couldnt pay for it!
I found that there are tons and tons and TONS of great things to do in New York that wont cost you a dime. With this book, you have access to the best of whats free, compiled into one reference.
You could be in the know, doing 100% FREE, yet fun and rewarding, activities such as:

- Free Kayak Rentals on the Hudson River
- Free performances including jazz, rock shows, plays, spoken word, beat boxing, dance comedy, word beat, blues, experimental artists, the list goes on!
- List of the best free museums and art galleries from the Village to Harlem
- Free T.V. show tapings
- Free movies, festivals, and more entertainment
- Free food and drinks
- Free kids activities

For example, many know about Shakespeare In The Park, but have you ever heard about the hilarious (and free) Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre? Its a free comedy show with many Saturday Night Live alum.

WHY THIS E-GUIDEBOOK IS DIFFERENT
This book is not about discount travel. Its about FREE travel.

- It only includes free activities, events, locations & attractions. It tells you how to get in to many paid attractions and events for free.
- Its exclusively formatted for the Kindle and Kindle App
- Its interactive, so you can easily access directions from your current location, reviews from other travelers, and more information entries in the book.

WHAT YOULL FIND INSIDE
Each entry has a well-researched description, contact information (email, phone, website), and links to contextual information. Color photos too!
It works great with the Kindle App for your smartphone, so you can get directions from Google.
Theres an interactive map, showing you all the free activities and an appendix with free trip planning tools, apps, etc.

A Hawaiian Family Vacation: Oahu
http://www.amazon.com/A-Hawaiian-Family-Vacation-Oahu-ebook/dp/B...

What would a woman who grew up in Hawaii show her mainland-born husband and son when they visited Oahu? A former Honolulu resident profiles various beaches, tourist sights, and different types of local food in a new Amazon ebook.

A Hawaiian Family Vacation: Oahu is a virtual scrapbook, with photos and commentary of various Oahu destinations. Barbara Lougheed was born and raised in Honolulu, graduated from the University of Hawaii, moved to the mainland, and married a mainlander. After her son was born and was old enough to travel, she had to plan her first visit back home and decide what to show her mainland born husband and son. She came back to visit every few years, and her new ebook is a summary of the places they visited and the foods they ate. Readers benefit from a different point of view than other travel guidebooks.

Photos and reviews of famous locations like Waikiki and Hanauma Bay are included, but so are other lesser-known areas like Chinatown and Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden. See her son jumping off the rock at Waimea Bay on the North Shore, posing with a turtle at Turtle Beach, eating Waiola shave ice in Kapahulu, hanging from a Banyan tree in Kapiolani Park, ringing the bell and feeding the fish at Byodo-In Temple in Kaneohe, and swimming to Flat Island at Kailua Beach.

Dining reviews cover the local plate lunch, along with other locations serving Chinese, Korean, and Hawaiian food, Pacific Rim cuisine, supermarket deli food, a shrimp truck on the North Shore, and even mochi ice cream.

Choosing a Hawaiian Island to Visit, the last section in the book, details the differences between the Hawaiian Islands, so visitors can decide for themselves which island best suits them. Kauai, Oahu, Maui, and The Big Island of Hawaii differ in population, types of beaches, activities, and ambience, but visitors may not be aware of these differences.

The cuisine of Puglia is famous for being among the best in Italy. Puglian food is deeply rooted in the traditions of this southern Italian region, its geography, and its history as the breadbasket of Italy and the largest producer of olive oil.

In this cookbook, beautifully illustrated with recipe and preparation photos as well as images from Puglia itself, first-time author Viktorija Todorovska (a Chicagoan who studied cooking at the famed Florentince culinary school Apicius) has created a memorable introduction to this unsung cuisine. Puglian cooking's two great benefits are of huge interest today: it's very simple, usually requiring little technique and basic prepartion, and it's incredibly healthful, as it's based largely on olive oil and fresh vegetables.

Puglian cooking as Todorovska present it here respects the integrity and quality of the ingredients, which should be as fresh high quality as possible. The recipes in this cookbook are simple, the ingredients easy to find, and the dishes bursting of flavor. These are healthful, easy to prepare dishes that should appeal to everyone.



Plancha: 150 Great Recipes for Spanish-Style Grilling
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004XC2VO4

"Plancha" is a Spanish word that literally translates as plate, and refers to both a style and a method of cooking, using a metal slab heated over a gas flame. In Spain, planchas are widely used in tapas bars and restaurants to cook an incredible assortment of foods, from mussels to mushrooms and even desserts. In private homes, planchas are often installed in the middle of round tables, so that both the hosts and their guests can share in the cooking experience and no one is stuck in the kitchen. Prepared both indoors and out, plancha cooking is as delicious and suitable on a warm sunny day as it is on a chilly night.

The popularity of plancha has even crossed the Spanish border into France, where many noted chefs, such as Alain Ducasse and Paul Bocuse, have adopted this way of cooking in their Paris restaurants. Its not just for the gourmet restaurants, however: planchas are incredibly easy to use over grills and stoves, with little mess. And--unlike with other methods of grilling--there is no chance of watching your meal go up in flames.

In Plancha, Liliane Otal shows how to buy and maintain a plancha as well has how to make more than 150 delicious recipes that are so simple and fast anyone can do them. The cooking time for nearly all of these recipes is under 20 minutes. Her recipes will show you how to prepare delicious and flavorful meals that are also low in fat.

Chicken and Waffle Recipes -From Harlem to the Universe: the Top 10 Chicken and Waffle Recipes On the Planet

Legend has it that the all American combination of savory Southern fried chicken and sweet maple syrup drizzled buttermilk waffles was born out of necessity (it is the mother of all invention after all) this intriguing combination was born out of the amalgamation of the 1920s and 30s jazz clubs in places like New York and Chicago is said that patrons and musicians alike would spill out onto the street in the wee morning hours looking for something to soak up all the rotgut gin and provided a much-needed boost of energy that patrons were most likely craving breakfast, and the musicians were most likely in the mood for dinner. So inevitably in a blurry eyed euphoria people would make their way to one of the many 24-hour diners in hopes of satisfying their cravings.

Those that wanted breakfast would order a big plate of waffles. Those that wanted dinner a big plate of fried chicken (often times these were the cheapest items on the menu) and because people often dined in groups, both items were often ordered together, along with large cups of coffee, and his people often do they begin to share food with one another.
And inevitably a piece of fried chicken ended up attracting a few droplets of maple syrup and a fork full of waffles signed a piece of fried chicken, and in very short order. It was discovered that the sweet and savory combination of both foods eaten together was an explosion of flavor and texture like nothing anyone had experience before. This unique combination was a perfect match for the jazz era hipsters.
It was a little strange about that familiar and yet strangely satisfying just like jazz music. And ever since then, a plate of chicken and waffles has been the go to grub after a late night adventure.
From Harlem to the universe top 20 chicken and waffle recipes is an outstanding collection of some of the most mouthwatering chicken and waffle recipes ever to be invented this side of the Milky Way everything from classic buttermilk waffles with maple syrup and oven fried chicken to a chicken and waffles grilled cheese sandwich!!
And there are some unique twists on some Southern favorites. Anyone that has grown up in the South, and one time or another has had pecan pie for breakfast (whether your mother was working or not) from Harlem to the universe takes his ultimate breakfast of champions. One step further, with the pecan crusted chicken and waffle sandwich!! (This particular dish is so good your taste buds will feel as though they are traveling at warp speed with Mr. Zulu).

All of these recipes suggest using top-quality ingredients, and the healthiest possible cooking methods. There is more than one recipe for some variation of oven baked, fried chicken and waffles so not only do you get to experience the awesome taste bud tingling flavor explosion.
That is the mind bending combination of chicken and waffles but you will be able to do is in the healthiest way possible (that said, chicken and waffles is one of those food combinations that should definitely be enjoyed in moderation).

So the next time you get a late night craving for something sweet and savory, or you are returning any blurry eyed euphoria from an all night adventure and require a little boost of energy turn to the from Harlem to the universe chicken and waffle recipe cookbook, your friends and taste buds will think you. chicken and waffles recipe

Marked down to $129 with a $30 rebate to make it $99. Has wide steel cooking grates. OK. All painted with no stainless. OK. No warming rack ???. If you're into the 4 year grill rotation (Chicago) like I am, this one's almost perfect. 3 main burners and a side cooker. No warming rack is goofy but easy enough to do at this price if needed. Cheap and cheerful. I got one and it seems to cook just fine on it's first try. Heats up to a high tempquickly.

Contracting position got cancelled after all hassle
Added on : Monday April 14th 2014 09:00:12 AM
g: 0 Posted By: cubbychicagolove
Views: 233 Replies: 4 my friend, got contracting job in one of the top IT firm with their client in Ohio.
after receiving all the paperwork, he signed and sent on right time. All work is done.

then they give tentative joining date and mentioned that It'll be +/- 1-2 days, but week after, he had to start. And they also said they won't pay for the air ticket.
so then he booked ticket right away for the week after, and then they suddenly informed my friend that he had to wait 1 more week as the client is not ready with the infrastructure (laptops, systems ready)
so he cancelled, and booked again for next week. Then same thing happened and it got postponed for 2 more weeks. he had to cancel again.

now this time, he hadn't booked any flight, but then the news came out that they stopped getting more people after certain point, and now all the others are terminated.

As in their contract, my friend stopped looking for job for 1 month. On top of that, he had to pay twice one way ticket. Now I asked my friend to get at least some amount from the consulting firm. but he's not sure that if he can get that money from them.

Any advise is appreciated

Views: 149 Replies: 0 Parents bought a condo in Chicago (Cook County) so my brother could get instate tuition. I've been living here paying 50% of the mortgage for about 7 years. Now that my brother is out they want to give me the property.

Value is assessed at $300k and we have $110K principle left.

I spoke to my bank and I feel like they're selling me on a quitclaim deed with refinancing, but I wanted to know if there was a smarter way to do this? In the end I just want ownership and tax benefits.

Any recommendations on what programs I can leverage? I did research but could never find a definitive answer around how to leverage lifetime gift exemptions, gift tax (14k/yr) allowance, etc.

Also long term I want to setup a living trust to place my assets and properties, should I get this process started now and transfer the house under the trust?

Thanks!

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.

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.

Trip to Europe - Airfare
Added on : Friday March 07th 2014 02:00:07 PM
g: 0 Posted By: bulkywallet
Views: 18 Replies: 0 Me and wifey are looking to vacation for 8-9 days in Europe. Dates are final (April 17/18 - April 27/28),but quite flexible with destination (preferably somewhere in Italy/France/Gemany/Switzerland- obviously not all, but any one depending on what works for airfare).

We will be flying out of ORD Chicago, okay with reasonable stop overs (total trip not exceeding 13 hours).

I have already looked into previous forums and checked several sites including ITA matrix. Best that I see is around $1,000. I was hoping for something in the $750 - $800 price range.

Are there any sites you recommend or is Priceline a viable option? Thanks in advance.

Looking for Advice on Affordability of Home Purchase
Added on : Sunday March 02nd 2014 09:00:07 AM
g: 0 Posted By: BillRHIT
Views: 182 Replies: 7 Hi all, I have run a lot of numbers and am on the verge of making an offer on a home. I believe we can comfortably afford it, but would like to hear others opinions and see if I have missed anything. I acknowledge that we don't "need" this fancy/large of a house, but I would prefer to buy our "dream home" now as opposed to buying an intermediary home and in 5-10 years moving up. We live in the midwest (not Chicago), so housing is cheap here.

My wife and I make a combined $250K. ($200 for me, $50 for her). My job is as stable as I could hope for. My income could fluctuate year to year, but should generally increase over time. I'm a new partner in a well established mid size law firm.

We currently live in a $140K home and owe about $80K on it. In addition to that $50-60K equity, we have $450K in liquid funds and $300K in retirement savings. Both of our cars are worth about 25K each and are paid off, and we have no debt other than the mortgage. We currently have a two year old son, and hope to have one more child in the near future. Our current home is too small for a second child. We spend $1000 a month on child care and will send our kids to the local public schools, which are very good.

Home would be 600K, maximum. Property taxes are roughly 5.5K annually with $500/yr HOA fees. With a 200K down payment and a 4.125% 30 year mortgage for the rest I figure the payment (all in) would be $2500/month.

Our net income is about $160,000. This accounts for taxes, health insurance, HSA contributions, and maxing out retirement savings. Obviously this would go up if we were to take on the larger mortgage.

Based on this, the mortgage described above would be ~19% of our take home pay. We would still have 300K in savings (provided our current home sells quickly, which we expect based on it being in great shape and the cheapest home in a desirable neighborhood/school district). I expect to spend about 20K furnishing the new home in the next few months.

Am I missing anything? Thanks in advance for your thoughts. I know many may think this is too much house, and I hear that, but you could spend it in worse ways, right?

Thinking of accepting an offer in CO -- Moving from Chicago
Added on : Wednesday February 19th 2014 12:00:04 PM
g: 0 Posted By: musicmaster
Views: 182 Replies: 4 Background on me: Male, 24, Single. Grew up and live in the Chicago Suburbs. Been at my current position for 20 months. Current position is in the marketing field at a F500. Current pay is 48.3 + 2k bonus + 4.5% 401K match and $1300 HSA funds per year for a total of about $53,700. I will get a 3% raise in May, making it about $55,000 even. I'd be looking at leaving my current company in the summer. I'm underpaid for my position by around $7-10,000, if not more (depending on the company. I had a co-worker leave for a position at another company for $66k+benefits with similar experience). I receive 10 vacation days per year. The company is older with very little employee development or sense of community and there is a decent amount of turnover

I have about $68,000 saved between a Roth IRA, 401K, mutual funds, stocks and my checking account.

I had applied to a position near Boulder, CO in January when I was out there for vacation. I've made it through the interview process and they presented an offer, contingent of me visiting the company. Their offer was $55,000 +2,000 relocation but they don't have HSA funds nor a 401k match. They do offer stock options though, but I am not sure of their value yet. Essentially, the situation seems to be a wash as far as salary goes. Cost of Living in the Boulder area doesn't seem to be any less expensive than Chicago suburbs.

The positives I see are: The company is much more transparent than my current one - smaller, much better work-life benefits (biking to work, younger co-workers, free lunches, 8:30-5, unlimited vacation) and the position is exactly what I'm looking for. Colorado is also much more outdoorsy than Illinois and I am a marathon runner and love hiking and camping.

The negatives I see are: No real increase in salary. If I stay in IL and get another job, I'd be looking at a 10%+ increase. I'm lucky and have been able to save about $1,000 salary per month (sharing rooms, being frugal etc) on top of my 401K. The additional $5-10k I would get staying in Chicago would go straight into savings (mutual funds). I also leave behind my friends and family.

From a financial aspect, it doesn't seem to make sense to move to CO. Even if they bump the salary up $2-3,000, I'd probably go back to IL to visit my parents 4-5 times per year, which at $300 per ticket, would cut my salary increase to only $1,500. From a work environment it's 100x better. For the outdoor opportunities, it's much better. Obviously I'd eventually make friends. One thing that worries me is the "Menver" comment about CO. I'm not a party person. Hell, my group of friends and I haven't been to the bars since New Years. So meeting people would be organic through running clubs and biking clubs etc.

Thoughts?

Discover tie up with county for property tax payment by credit card
Added on : Monday February 10th 2014 05:00:11 PM
g: 0 Posted By: Nishant1
Views: 0 Replies: 0 Last year, my county (In Chicago area) had atie up with Discover credit card which offered tax payment by card. It had tiered but significantly lower fees.I found itinterestingthat the fee was capped at $38 max so you can turn it into Cash Back opportunity by routing payment through Discover.
Our property taxes here are pretty high. My property taxes were about $12K but my card limit was less than that which required me to split payment in two installments.
To avoid two payments and to save on additional $38 fees and to get 120-38= $82 CashBack in single transaction, I pushed a credit card payment to create a credit balance of $5000 through my checking and hoped that $12Kcharge wouldgo through as single payment
It did not go though and I had to split payment.

Now Discover has autoincreased my limit over last 3 quarters so I can manage in single installment. Hopefully all terms remaining same, we will find out in April 2014.

Views: 217 Replies: 2 First, thank you for your ideas and suggestions. This truly means a lot to me. I have searched and read through the required materials on this board. Again, I genuinely thank you for your time. I have tried to include the most pertinent information below.

My question is: How much should I invest in my 401k v. how quickly should I pay off my student debt.

I am 26 years old. Graduated with a professional degree in mid-2013, passed my professional licensing exam and started working at a Fortune 500 company in early January 2014.

I managed to get out of undergrad with no student loans (working during the year + summers and earning grants and scholarships). I graduated from law school with $62,000 of debt and allocated it by percentage below. (All Federal Loans).

Direct unsub. Stafford- $33,000 (6.8%)
Direct Sub. Stafford- $17,000 (6.8%)
Direct Student Plus- $12,000 (7.9%)

I've been paying off interest as it comes due throughout law school and have no other debt whatsoever. That said- my savings are nearly 0. (I will be receiving my second paycheck this week).

My starting salary is $75,000 even. I expect to hopefully be able to increase that in the near future. Truthfully, in my industry, I'm fortunate to have a job right now. That said, once I gain a few years of experience I believe I will be able to increase that figure dramatically.

My company offers a 6% 401k matching plan, which vests on a graded scale. Meaning- they will match my first 6% fully, however, after my first full year of employment 33% of their match will vest and be mine if I leave the company. After two years- 66% will vest and then after 3 years 100% of their match will vest. This worries me a bit because it is not uncommon to find or be offered a higher paying job within that time span. I suppose I'll have to decide how big a pay jump and whether it's worth it at the time.

Also my employer is a public traded company and they offer a ESPP. They will match the first 3% of contributions, after-tax, to that program.

I've also started a Roth IRA- although I have only put a few hundred dollars in it so far. I live in Chicago with a roommate and pay about $1,000/month total for rent, utilities, etc. I picked this living arrangement so that I could not have a car and walk about 4 blocks to work each day. If I need a car for a particular day for work- my employer will pick up the zipcar tab- which is great. My goal is to stay in this specific living situation for about 2-3 years. I eventually hope to save to buy a modest 1 or 2 bedroom condo.

Back to my question- Any advice on the strategy of repaying my loans and saving for retirement would be incredibly helpful. Again, thank you for your time and consideration.

A visual retelling of the rise and eventual fall of Chicago's most notorious gangster: Alphonse "Scarface" Capone. Comprised of many never-before-published photographs from theChicago Tribune's vast archives,Al Caponeis a look back in time to the Roaring Twenties and the early days of organized crime. This collection of historical photostaken from 1926 to 1952focus on Capone and those connected to him, including his family, mob rivals, and targets.

Many of these photographs have never been seen outside of Chicago's Tribune Tower, but all of them are high-quality scans of original glass-plate negatives, making them historically significant to both photography buffs and readers interested in Capone. The introduction by theChicago Tribune's associate managing photo/video editor details this process in an illuminating, fascinating fashion.

Al Capone's first section gives readers a look inside Capone's luxurious and illicit gangster lifestylevacation homes, mob funerals, gun-toting arrestsup to the time of the Saint Valentine's Day Massacre in 1929. The second part follows Capone's 1931 indictment, trial, and sentencing on charges of defrauding the government and violating prohibition. The third section introduces readers to a mob Target who evaded assassination for decades, and one who was not so lucky. The fourth part follows up with Al Capone's brother, Ralph, and the fifth part focuses on Capone's death.

Family member likely being laid off...sort of
Added on : Friday January 10th 2014 08:00:05 PM

Views: 127 Replies: 0 So this is going to come as kind of a unique situation (sorry, it's kind of long), and I'd appreciate any insight as to how this can be handled in the best way and potentially to get the most payout (from the severance).

My mother started working for a company in February 2011 or thereabouts, in California. She was an executive assistant for 2 senior VPs (medium-sized company). She liked working there, liked her bosses, never had any real issues and always received great feedback and excellent performance reviews. Around Spring of last year I started hearing grumblings from her about the job, a couple of executive assistants and other employees were let go, younger and younger people started coming in as replacements. The company had really become quite different than when she started, in her opinion, and it wasn't treating employees well.

My mom has had serious issues with her knees due to being a semi-pro, rated tennis player in her younger years.Fast forward to summer 2013.She decided it was time to have knee replacement surgery on the worse of the two knees last September. Shefollowed all the right procedures with HR and notifying her bosses that she'd be out for an extended period of time of around 3 months (under FMLA provisions, I think). The surgery went ok, but there was more damage than the surgeon anticipated, including some additional nerve damage that prevented my mom from walking (her foot dragged). So instead of 3 months recovery it would take maybe an extra month or so. She's been doing physical therapy and the process has worked great, she's walking much, much better now.

During the recovery my mom moved back into the house she owns (she was renting previously, and renting out her house) which is about 45 minutes away from said job. During her period of disability from September to December, a family member asked her if she would like to be his employee as his personal/executive assistant (he does a great deal of financing for house flipping partners, and flies his plane around to scope properties around the Western states).

All the while she did keep in touch with her then boss; she was honest with him in telling him she had moved back for the recovery. He commented point blank 'you're not coming back are you...?' to which she responded that it hadn't been decided yet. She ultimately did decide to take the job with our relative, and was going to put in her two-week notice to her employer once she had her 'back to work' date from her doctor when she goes to the appointment on January 16th.

Earlier this week the company's HR department called her asking if January 16th was her back to work date. She said no, that was the date of her doctor's appointment, and she would likely get her back to work date at that time (she said this was a suspicious call the way they phrased the question). Interestingly enough, today my mom got a phone call from a colleague of hers in the Chicago office asking if she had read her email, and my mom said no, she hadn't read emails for weeks. When she did she saw an email from yesterday announcing a MAJOR 'reorganization' of the company. Many in the executive suite were let go, including BOTH my mom's bosses (who had been with the company 24+ years). So, you do the math...

What my mom wants to do now is try to call their bluff, rather than give her notice. On January 16th she expects the doctor will tell her she can go back to work 2 weeks later. She will communicate the same to her employer. She thinks the employer will either straight up tell her she is being laid off, or will send some sort of certified letter to that effect in the two week time period, offering a severance package as well. If they don't she says she will tell them the day before she is to re-start that she will not be coming back. She really doesn't want to go back to the office, and plans on shipping back her iPad and cell phone to them rather than going in person, regardless of what happens.I chimed in and said she really should go back in person regardless of the outcome because I've been laid off before and they did it in person, not via letters or phone calls. She thinks it would be humiliating and embarrassing which I understand. I also told her it's not good to burn bridges in case she needs a job in the future, that not giving proper notice (in case they call her bluff) would be recorded in her file. She's close to retirement age anyways and says she won't need a job in the future after this new one. Keep in mind they ELIMINATED her position by laying off her bosses.

So, my question is what course of action should she take? Should she:

1) Put in her two week notice once she has the back to work date, and forfeit any severance package
2) See if they really are going to lay her off and offer a package
3) Same as 2, but they want to do it in person on her first day back, to which she won't go and she'd put in her notice one day prior to re-start date
4) Same as 3, but try to get her to go back on the first day to see what happens

Another thing I see with this is the company may be smart and think if they lay her off right away that it will look really suspicious (having been off work for 4 months due to legal disability) and put them at a legal crossroads. I don't know how the FMLA works, my mom seems to think she outside that protection but I haven't researched it yet.

Now, yes ethics comes into play here. My mom was fully intending on doing the proper thing by quitting with two weeks, but I don't feel sorrow for what the company has done with this restructuring. The company was not performing badly at all, performance and profit sharing bonuses were given out the two years my mom was there. The guys replacing my mom's bosses are out of the Houston office, hired 2 months ago in their 30s (as told to her by her counterpart in Chicago). I told my mom JOKINGLY just to go with the nuclear legal route, but in reality I would like her to just play her unique situation to her advantage and get a nice payout from company. But I don't want her to burn bridges at the same time.

What would you do in her shoes? I appreciate any insight.

5.0 out of 5 stars (7 customer reviews)

The creative classartists, actors, writers, musicians, freelancers, dancers, performers, and the likeare known for applying their passion for creative expression to everything they do. Perhaps the one thing that most fills this group with apprehension is the rigid world of numbers. This leads to problems arising from the unconventional financial and business situations of creative professionals, as well as the nonprofit organizations with which they're often affiliated. Finances, budgeting, and business matters can be dreaded, if not outright ignored, by creatives--to the detriment of their artistic pursuits.

Author, artist, and CPA Elaine Grogan Luttrull has written Arts & Numbers to help creative professionals find the same confidence in their financial dealings as in their chosen mode of expression. It is an engaging, accessible guide that covers a variety of must-know topics, such as budgeting, cash management, visual charting, taxes, employment, and business etiquette. In a simple, straightforward style, Luttrull draws examples from smooth-flowing narratives depicting common issues within the arts worlds, as well as from her own personal anecdotes. Unlike stuffy textbooks and patronizing business books, Arts & Numbers is a lively and artfully done ally in helping creative professionals plan their present financial situations and secure their futures.

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.

4.7 out of 5 stars (13 customer reviews)

When it comes to hot dogs, Hot Doug's head chef Doug Sohn is the master of the craft. His introduction of gourmet ingredients and professionally trained culinary flair to the world of encased meats has earned him national recognition and praise. In Hot Doug's: The Book, Sohn takes the reader on a fun, irreverent trip through the history of hot dogs, his restaurant, and the many patrons -- both famous and average Joe -- who have declared Sohn the king of dogs.

As told through Sohn's own stories, this book will combine photos, favorite anecdotes, lessons learned, and lists ranging from general restaurant etiquette to most-repeated sausage double-entendres (Doug's heard 'em all). Stories included will reveal fact from the folklore of the restaurant's founding, retell the tale of Hot Doug's infamous 2006 run-in with Chicago City Hall, and even provide accounts of Hot Doug's-inspired tattoos, which if presented upon order privilege the bearer to free hot dogs for life. Contributions from some of Hot Doug's biggest fans will be spread throughout the book, with raves from Paul Kahan, Steve Albini, Dan Sinker, Mindy Segal, Homaro Cantu, Aziz Ansari, many other local and national figures, and an introduction from Graham Elliot.

will refund to you all monies paid, under the agreement.
(b) If you move more than 25 miles from our location, we have the right to transfer your membership to a
comparable facility within 25 miles of your new residence. If there is no comparable facility or if the comparable

List of Dominick's Store Participating in 50% off Clearance
Added on : Wednesday December 18th 2013 03:00:10 AM
g: 0 Posted By: longshotz777
Views: 8 Replies: 0 In the Chicagoland area, all the Dominick's are shutting down. Some are being bought out buy Jewel or Mariano's grocery stores. They are slashing prices from 30%-50% and more as they get closer to their closing date. For alcohol, in order to get the 50% you have to purchase 6 bottles otherwise it's just 30% off. I picked up 6 bottles of 12 year old Glenlivet Scotch for $22 each! I'm assuming it's the same policy for all the store but I could be wrong.

Here's a list of all the stores that are participating on the 50% off clearance. Sorry I'm not allowed to link the post per FW.

Views: 1 Replies: 0 Perhaps a YMMV. Wife and I just got back from shopping at the one located in 60543. Cashier asked us if we had a Dominick's card, wife pulled one out and received 10% off the bill. We asked if the mPerks would negate the 10% and was told no. Sure enough, the mPerks my wife had of 5% off grocery stacked. Saved a total of $55 on groceries. Didn't see the 10% deal advertised in the flyer this week. The cashier said the 10% was good until the end of the month, or until Dominick's closes. The local Dominick's here will close and will not occupied so perhaps it's a YMMV, not sure. The cashier ended up keeping the card just so you know. Every customer in my view received 10% off since they all had Dominick's cards. Not sure if it was only off grocery but most likely I would assume so.

Enjoy!

Got hit by car from rear in Los Angeles
Added on : Monday November 25th 2013 09:00:09 AM
g: -7 Posted By: cubbychicagolove
Views: 180 Replies: 7 Got hit by car from rear while driving in School Zone. I was driving in designated speed in School Zone as it was morning time. It happened in Los Angeles. a guy driving behind me started honking even there were 2 lanes, but I maintain my speed as it was school zone and very next intersection I had to take right bcz that's where I work. no major damage to car, no injuries to him. Few scratches to my car. but I am feeling pain in my lower back because of the jerk from the hit. I can walk, sit at my desk at work but there is pain.

we exchanged information, took pictures. I have medical insurance, but want to know what are my chances of getting it covered by that guy's insurance?
I reported the accident to my insurance company, and my insurance company contacted his insurance company. Now I need to wait for his insurance company to call me as mentioned by My insurance company.

any good help appreciated

Views: 2 Replies: 0 This deal is not showing up on the national Gilt City site, so choose a city. Here is the link for Chicago. There is an option to have them send you a prepaid label, so AFAIK you don't have to live in the city you choose to get in on the deal, but I'm not 100% sure about that.

The deal is: donate 5 items of clothing (brand must be on a list of designer brands, think J. Crew up to Chanel and beyond) to Fashion Project and get a $50 Gilt City credit. Gilt City is essentially a Groupon clone, they offer local deals in major cities but also regularly have vouchers for online retailers. According to a recent WSJ deal post, the credit may or may not apply to the regular Gilt flash sale site as well as City. (That deal is still alive, by the way, and worth checking out.)

Someone will look through your stuff and decide if you get the credit based on brand, condition, etc. For this reason, I am donating more than 5 items in hopes at least 5 make the cut. I wouldn't necessarily risk going out to thrift stores to buy your 5 branded items but if you have stuff to get rid of anyway, may as well give it a try.

Will update the quick summary with the list of brands, because they want you to log in to be able to see it.

Imagine a time capsule, sealed in 1974, full of exciting storytelling songs and rhymes composed at the height of the American social and musical revolution of that time -- not recordings, but lyrics and rhymes never before recorded for public release. Then, imagine the "time capsule" is deteriorating with most of its treasures still inside, and unless these works are retrieved and recorded quickly, they may soon be lost forever.
Travis Edward Pike's Odd Tales and Wonders is equal parts memoir and collection of some of his most memorable works from 1964-1974. Arriving in Los Angeles in 1968, this multi-talented Bostonian won an INTERCOM award for Special Achievement - Writing at the 1999 Chicago Film Festival for his feature-length video performance of his original epic narrative rhyme, Grumpuss. At the 2006 U.S. International Film and Video Awards, as the co-writer, co-producer and editor, he took home Certificates for Creative Excellence for the feature documentary Volunteers for Verdi. If his career was a screenplay, this book would be its First Act and its publication would signal the beginning, in screenwriter's jargon, of its Third Act, when all the obstacles introduced in this First Act are overcome and the saga's many subplots are resolved.
Music journalist Harvey Kubernik, author of A Perfect Haze: The Illustrated History of the Monterey International Pop Festival and Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and the Music of Laurel Canyon writes in his Foreword to Odd Tales and Wonders, "Read his book and listen to the soundtrack from the First Act of the life now being revealed by this multi-talented Hollywood multi-hyphenate. Discover his music and poetry, once heard live by thousands, preserved in memory and notebooks, and finally, for the first time, arranged and recorded for this generation in Odd Tales and Wonders: Stories in Song and Odd Tales and Wonders: Stories in Rhyme."

Buying Industrial Wastelands for Fun and Profit (Detroit's Packard Plant)
Added on : Thursday November 07th 2013 11:00:09 AM
g: 0 Posted By: Tom9999
Views: 112 Replies: 2 I believe this topic/discussion fits here. If not, mods please feel free to move or red me to death.

Wayne County, MI is trying to sell the old Packard manufacturing plant. It is a 35 acre industrial wasteland on the east side of Detroit.

http://www.freep.com/article/20131106/BUSINESS06/311060156/Packa...

A Chicago developer (see linked article) tried to buy it a couple months ago for $1 million in back taxes. He failed to come up with the money, so it went to auction. He and a doctor from Texas ended up running the auction to over $6 million. The doctor turned out to be a wackjob (see other articles linked in the above article) and never produced cash. Her bids were thrown out and now the guy from Chicago can buy it for $2 million.

He could not produce the $2 mil, so the county gave him some more time for a $100K non-refundable deposit with $300K due a few days later. The $300K never materialized, but he put down a second $100K and has $1.8 million still due.

The guy couldn't produce $1 million to buy it outright. He has thrown another $200K (non-refundable) at it but still does not seem to have the means to actually buy it.

For the brilliant finance minds here, where is the profit in this for him? All I can think of is that he is sucking in investors, pocketing part of the money, and stringing along the county to try to get more suckers. What am I missing?

Insurance and Contractors Miscommunication

Views: 140 Replies: 0 Long Story Short

*Jets cracked in Jacuzzi tub destroyed wood floors, cabinets in Chicago Condo (Issue is cabinet project)

*Bought unit dirt cheap (40k sight unseen and to my surprise it was pretty pimped out with wood floors, maple cabinets. previously purchased for 250k)

*Insurance was 50k and I was at 45k. (probably should of been higher but i was being stupid. Forgot all works needs a liscensed and bonded company. I have a construction foreman that's retired that does a lot of work for me dirt cheap in the burbs usually so that would be more than enough in most cases)

*Cabinets were salvageable/use-able but contractor tried to get more out of it and recommended new cabinets (I said okay as insurance will pay for it)

*Mis-communication between contractor and state farm. Contractor thought he had go ahead but project was additional 6k above 50k(They never discussed policy limits etc etc). He already took out cabinets and broke them down(threw them away). He said I was stuck with the bill even though this is not something I approved or agreed paying for. I am paying for my tenant's hotel right now at 100$ a day so I do need something done quick.


My question is what is the best way to handle this. Changing out the cabinets was more of a luxury than a necessity as It could have been salvaged (sent picture to other contractors). My agent is saying sorry I can't pay out anymore and my contractor says sorry I already took out cabinets and we need ones purchased and installed.

Any advice would be helpful~

don't mind paying but would rather not

Views: 129 Replies: 1 I'd appreciate any/all insurance advise with this case. When first hearing about their"non-cooperation" position from the AAA Insurance claim agent, I couldn't believe it. After research I learned it is a way for insurance companies to weasel out of paying a claim.Here's the case information:
Hello Janet,
I'm attaching the police report, accident pictures and accident repair invoices.
Background: On 5/11/13 my daughter, XXXX XXXX, was in an accident on the Stevenson Expressway (I-55) in the Chicago suburbs. Debris came off of a rental truck causing my daughter to brake as hard as possible and skid into the ditch. One of the cars witnessing the accident sped up and wrote down the trucks identification and license plate. They drove back to my daughters accident scene when an Illinois State Police officer was aiding my daughter. The officer noted this information on the attached police report.
Harry, the owner of the truck rental operation,XXXX Rental thought his insurance company, ARA would handle my claim. =10ptHe submitted the claim through ARA and I was contacted by ARA division, North America Risk Services representativeXXXX XXXXXX(800.XXX.XXXX) that the claim (#RNXXXXX) was the responsibility of the truck renter.Harry provided me the truck renter information.
Name: Benedykt Gorzko
Policy Name: AAA - Select Insurance Company
Policy #: AUT00XXXXX
Policy Dates: 12/19/12 - 6/19/13
The accident caused $1,423.68 in damages to my daughters car. This is the full amount of my claim. Here's some further detail related to the attached invoices...

Initially Janet the AAA claims agentsaid because the policy was liability only they couldn't pay. I then went back to the truck rentals company, ARA and theysaid Janet was giving me BS and even with "just liability" they were responsible for the claim. I then called Janet back and told her what ARA said and she finally admitted yes, they are responsible. Now aftermany months she's denying the claim because of non-cooperation from Mr. Gorzko.

I'm thinking my options are: A:lick mywounds andgo on/ forget it (it's not a financial burden) or B: call others at AAA and compain/fight or C: go back to ARA to see what they can do or D:try to smear AAA Insurance publically. "D" in fact might offer me the most satisfaction. The Chicago Tribune posts a column called "What's Your Problem"that's many times on the front page.

I'd appreciate your thoughts on my next step(s) and I'd also like to hear comments on this non-cooperation clause in the insurance policy. It just seems so unfair. Thanks!

Advocate Medical Group Lawsuit
Added on : Tuesday October 22nd 2013 08:00:12 PM
g: 0 Posted By: messi85
Views: 96 Replies: 1 Advocate Medical Group, part of the largest health system in Illinois, recently announced asecurity breachthat puts over4 million current and former patients at risk of identity theft.On July 15, 2013, burglars stole four computers from an Advocate Medical Group administrative office in Park Ridge, IL. Sources cite a lack of 24/7 security and no alarm system on the premises.The unencrypted (not secured) data stored on the hard drives of the stolen computers include the information of patients just like you. This could include your Social Security numbers, names, addresses, DOBs, medical diagnoses, medical record numbers, medical service codes, and health insurance information.This type of sensitive data can be used for an array of fraudulent activity.Advocate violated privacy regulations by failing to use encryption and other security measures on the computers (Smith,Chicago Tribune, 9/5).


Advocate Medical Center offered me free Experian credit report monitoring for a year. My girlfriend and her sister also got this letter. My dad also got a letter in the mail saying that his personal information was violated. I actually had to call Advocate to find out I was on the list and then they sent me a letter that I was a victim. My dads social security number is also tied to my health insurance. My girlfriend mother also got a letter. We want to sue advocate and do a class action lawsuit. I want to sue them and not be part of the current class action lawsuit that some patients filed because I will only get a small chunk of money. So I dont know if I should maybe get my own lawyer and sue them. Any thoughts on this? This is the second time Advocate has done this in the last 4 years.

Views: 55 Replies: 0 I looked up multiple websites and the cheapest is 284 if fly from Wilmington, Delaware to Midway airport.
I found a cheaper flight on US airways from Newark to O'Hare airport for 198 ( will have to change flight in PHL). Same flight is 311$ if I book from Philly.

I guess most of the FWF members know what I am getting at, can I skip the first flight and show up for second one as we will be changing the flights. US airways prohibit that in terms ( but it also said I can cancel a part of the flight if I call a day ahead- unsure if that will cancel the second leg as well.

Please refrain from getting personal if my post is naive. I will call the customer care , but I know the answer will be a big NO.

Are there any other options that I can look into in to in terms of flying from nearest options.

'Leaving a tip: a custom in need of changing?' (NYT)
Added on : Wednesday September 04th 2013 04:00:10 AM
g: 0 Posted By: tuphat
Views: 207 Replies: 5 Link: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/04/dining/leaving-a-tip-a-custom-in-need-of-changing.html?smid=pl-share

Excerpt:

"It is irrational, outdated, ineffective, confusing, prone to abuse and sometimes discriminatory. The people who take care of us in restaurants deserve a better system, and so do we. That's one reason we pay attention when a restaurant tries another way, as Sushi Yasuda in Manhattan started to do two months ago. Raising most of its prices, it appended this note to credit card slips: 'Following the custom in Japan, Sushi Yasuda's service staff are fully compensated by their salary. Therefore gratuities are not accepted.' Sushi Yasuda joins other restaurants that have done away with tips, replacing them with either a surcharge (Atera and Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare in New York; Next and Alinea in Chicago; Coi and Chez Panisse in the San Francisco Bay Area) or prices that include the cost of service (Per Se in New York and the French Laundry in Healdsburg, Calif.). ...These restaurants are numerous enough and important enough to suggest that a tip-reform movement is under way. ... Front-of-house workers are suing one respected restaurant after another, ... accusing them of playing fast and loose with the laws on tips. The charges include sharing tips with workers who aren't eligible for them and making tipped employees spend too much time on what is called sidework, like folding napkins between meals. ... Some owners now think they can avoid the suits by eliminating tips."

Condo Leaking water but 2 plumbers can't find anythign

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).

Land Dispute: drop it or press on ?

Views: 5 Replies: 0 =xx-small ! important3Hello,

Old neighbors moved out; builder razed the house, chain-linked the property 8" over to us.

According to this thread, there are two kinds of surveys(full and not). The full one requires the surveyor to be bonded(for future disputes,errors), poles/pins are set, and a legal document is furnished.
http://www.fullofdeals.com/forums/finance/312692/

We have had a survey done years past, and so had the old neighbor. I dont know whether either survey was the full complete one;( though I am doubtful)

Overall, its only 8". However, we are in a culdesac/circle, narrow lots in front, and wide in back. The 8", given the narrow lots in front moves the boundary more noticeably.
(This used to be a quiet neighborhood, but things are very legalese now.)

Anyhow, we are in the Chicago suburban market; any advice/tips on how to best proceed? Should I talk to a lawyer first, or do my own legwork somehow(ie are these docs located at city dept.; Further, I dont see any pins at the corners set by the builder or how to verify? )

kmully's wife's 2nd AOR
Added on : Sunday August 25th 2013 09:00:07 AM
g: 1 Posted By: kmully
Views: 114 Replies: 0 We did my wife's first AOR in late October 2012.

Applied for and approved/not approved:

Citi AA Visa - approved
Citi AA AMEX - approved
Chase Southwest - not approved, tried reconsideration, not approved
Chase Marriott - approved
AMEX Biz Gold - approved
Barclay's US Airways Mastercard - approved

She also has:

Authorized User on my AMEX Blue Cash (Original) since 2007 -- too late to change now, this is her oldest card
Authorized User on my Chase Amazon since ... 2007/2008? -- again, feel like it is too late to change now due to account length
Chase Freedom since January 2012 (for 5% rotating)

I'm looking to get her (in order):

Citi AA Visa Platinum (FT reports that this is churnable regardless of how many other AA cards you have so no need to cancel current AA cards?) - 50k miles after $3k in 3 months, $0 AF then $95 after that
Chase British Airways - 50k miles after $2k in 3 months, $0 AF then $95 after that (I know they've had the 100k mile offer, but it requires a TON of spend and I think this is a better offer)
AMEX SPG - 30k after $5k in 6 months, $0 AF then $65 after that
Chase Ink Plus - 50k UR points after $5k in 3 months, $0 AF then $95 after that
AMEX SPG Biz - 30k after $5k in 6 months, $0 AF then $65 after that

Justification for why these cards:

Trying to acquire AA miles first for a bunch of trips in 2015, yes, 2015. First class from Hawaii to Chicago, Chicago to London, London to Chicago, Chicago to San Francisco... all for 125k miles per person = winning
BA miles for Avios 9,000 Avios mile roundtrips to get us to and from Chicago so we can use our AA miles for international first class tickets
SPG points (TBD whether to convert to airline miles with the 20k SPG = 25k airline mile conversion or to use for points + cash stays at SPG) plus want SPG because even if we don't convert the bonus to airline miles it is like having a 1.25x point airline mile card which is better than the Citi Cards
Ink Plus because hoping to use the one inquiry from BA and might as well, biggest offer on the business side for Chase
SPG Biz for same reasons, going to have the inquiry so might as well try to get more points

Other cards considered:

Chase United MileagePlus Explorer - because of Chase inquiries, but I'm guessing with her currently holding Freedom and Marriott and being an AU on Amazon, only room for maybe two cards with Chase? Might have to give up the Freedom and/or spread credit lines to get the ones above anyways.
BOA Alaskan Airlines - 30k miles instantly on approval, $75 AF - felt I might be pushing my luck with the inquiries if we throw another one there from BOA, plus 30k miles is okay but not ideal compared to other offers. Really wish the BOA/BOH Hawaiian combo was still around.
Citi Hilton Hhonors - Not because Hilton points are worth much but because it is a no-fee card with some category bonuses that she could use over the long run to increase account age. However, what I've read on FT re:the Citi AA Platinum Visa above is that Citi now won't let you do a personal and a business back to back, have to separated by 65+ days.

Questions:

Should I cancel the AMEX Biz Gold now or use it as bait to cancel to get the AMEX SPG cards?
Should I cancel her US Airways card? It has an annual fee and would bring her total account age up if I am doing my math right. She's already gotten all the bonus opportunities possible on the card. I have one as well (that I'm considering dropping in February) so if we travel on US Airways for the near future we have a few more months of bag-fee coverage.
Should I cancel her Citi Visa just to be sure? Planning on keeping the AMEX for Small Business Saturday to help offset part of the AF.
Any other cards I missed?
Any flaws in the plan that you see?

Car Dealership Financing Shenanigans

g: 0 Posted By: Tinker2Evers2Chance
Views: 39 Replies: 0 Went to a Chicago area car dealership today, USAA price quote in hand, USAA e-check for financing in hand. Agreed on numbers, agreed on trade. Presented my e-check paperwork (dealership is a USAA partner dealer, so supposed to be .5% off rate which is already ridiculously low). Dealer requested my SSN and for me to sign a blank financing contract "in case something happened with my e-check and the funds didn't clear." I refused. Dealer called me "shady", stated I was a "suspicious character" and that asked me "what I was trying to pull". Told me to them I was an "unknown entity" (This would have been my 3rd purchase from this dealer overall but not the exact same brand). Dealer would not sell me car or let me leave with car (not that I wanted to at that point). I walked out.

Other than walking out, sending email to dealership owners and purchasing elsewhere, any suggestions on who to contact to inform of this situation? Or just let it go?

Using strategic supply chain network design, companies can achieve dramatic savings from their supply chains. Now, experts at IBM and Northwestern University have brought together both the rigorous principles and the practical applications you need to master. Youll learn how to use supply chain network design to select the right number, location, territory, and size of warehouses, plants, and production lines; and optimize the flow of all products through your supply chain even if extends around the globe. The authors present better ways to decide what to manufacture internally, where to make these products, which products to outsource, and which suppliers to use. They guide you in more effectively managing tradeoffs such as cost vs. service level, improving operational decision-making by integrating analytics throughout supply chain management; and re-optimizing regularly for even greater savings. Supply Chain Network Design combines best practices, the latest methods in optimization and analytics, and cutting-edge case studies: everything you need to maximize the value of supply chain network design.

The End of the Euro begins with an overview of the birth of the euro itself. Understanding this history is essential to understand the anomalies built into the project from the beginning. These anomalies form the subject of chapter two, along with how they led to the situation that turned Greece, Portugal, and Spain into euro-destroying economic disaster areas. Chapter three shows how this was not an unforeseeable situation, as Europes history is filled with earlier failed attempts to build monetary unions. Chapter four is focused on Germany, by far the most important country within EMU, and why the chances of Germany leaving the union are much higher than is generally assumed. The book concludes with an analysis of what lies in wait for the remains of the monetary union and for a deeply divided and troubled continent in general. Either the EMU transforms itself fundamentally or it disintegrates.About the Author Johan Van Overtveldt is the editor in chief and managing director of Trends, Belgium's leading weekly on business and economics. He has published several books in Dutch and contributes to The wall street journal Europe and other publications. Also the author of Bernanke's Test and The Chicago School, he lives in Brussels.

FinCEN and You. The Laws Behind Trying To Manufacture Spend.

Views: 761 Replies: 9 (TL : DR - My interpretation of the federal regulations and how/why retailers implement policies relating to GC purchase. This isn't a skimmer though...if you are interested, read it all. UPDATED DISCLAIMER: This is meant to be an informational post to understand things on the back-end a bit better. Even with full understanding it is unlikely to help you net a higher spend. Individual retailers have different policies and those policies are often misunderstood or unevenly enforced. Thread title updated to clarify).After months of being told different stories by various employees of retail stores while trying to purchase GCs for credit, I was beginning to get a bit fed up. After being denied for 2x$500 cards at my one remaining "safe" WG store, I had a face-to-face with the store manager regarding their policies. This manager, a suited gentleman in his mid 40's (first time I'd seen a WG manager in a suit) spoke with me candidly for about 15-20 minutes. He informed me that he was the "community leader" for multiple WG stores in the area. He began by espousing that the $500 limit was some type of law. I challenged him on this, and he became a bit flustered. To his credit, he took the time to research with me the information he had on hand. The manager continued to claim that there were various laws that governed their policies, but conceded that the limits seemed somewhat imposed internally and he couldn't tell me precisely what laws they were subject to. I left without a complete understanding of why WG implements the policy they do, but the desire to know more. Before I discuss exactly what he told me, it is important to understand (or at least try to understand...) FinCEN. FinCEN is the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, a division of the US Treasury department. FinCEN are the ones that instituted the BSA (Bank Secrecy Act) and the KYC (Know Your Customer) initiatives that many of us are familiar with. Their main purpose - track money exchanges to help combat terrorism and money laundering.So what does this mean to the FWF community and those manufacturing spend (churners) specifically? Well, many of our activities, while legal, can appear suspicious in certain circumstances - not unlike those of criminals.FinCEN issued a rule in July of 2011, called the "Prepaid Access Rule" to which they issued a final amendment in September 2011. The dates for compliance with all of these rules was apparently January 2012. These rules and regulations have been around for a while (over a year) and yet it doesn't seem that all organizations are aware of what it actually means or how to implement it. It seems, like in many cases with newer laws, that those subject to them are going to be as careful as possible until they are more fully understood.There is a lot of data on FinCEN's "Rule". IANAL - and wading through it is very difficult for one not familiar with how to interpret U.S.C. Laws get amended and repealed and it is difficult to know what the most up-to-date information is. I am sharing my initial research here for discussion by the community. This is not a thread about how-to-game the system. Nor is this thread meant to be waived over the heads of retailers who don't seem to know the laws themselves. This is meant to educate us on what the actual laws say and to understand how and why certain retailers may be implementing certain policies.It is hard to know where to start, but I'm going to use this July 2011 news brief from FinCEN titled "FinCEN Issues Prepaid Access Final Rule Balancing the Needs of Law Enforcement and Industry.". The brief references two issues of the Federal Register defines much of the terminology being used.Important Terminology:MSB (Money Services Business) - This is a pretty obtuse term used throughout the various documentation. This linked definition is the best, most concise I can find. Basically, if you issue cash, check, money orders, stored value (prepaid), etc in the amounts greater than $1000/day in any one category you would be considered an MSB (banks and SEC/Commodoties brokers excluded). You can search the database of all registered MSBs here. However, not all MSBs must register with FinCEN however.For example, if I search all "Providers of prepaid access" in Chicago, IL - I get only two hits:

Order Express, INC - a company that appears to do money transfer to Latin America
You Too, INC - A restaurant company - seemingly listed because they provide gift cards to their restaurants.

If I search "Sellers of prepaid access" in the same area, I get dozens of hits, most of which are Currency Exchange locations.So, why aren't all the Supermarkets and Drugstores that sell prepaid cards listed here?Well, according to the news brief above:FinCEN Brief said: Sellers are retailers of prepaid access devices. While sellers are not required to register with FinCEN (just as no MSB that operates solely as an agent for another MSB is required to register),...
Therefore while both Sellers and Providers could be considered MSBs, apparently sellers don't have to register with FinCEN. But...
FinCEN Brief said: ...they must maintain an anti-money laundering program if the prepaid access product offered is covered by the rule
What prepaid access products are covered by the rule?

Well this FAQ helps (along with the previously linked info) define them. Basically, they seem to include all prepaid access instruments with these exclusions:

Excludes government funded and pre-tax flexible spending for health and dependent care funded prepaid access programs. - Relatively self explanatory
Exempts closed loop prepaid access products sold in amounts of $2,000 or less - A closed loop product is one that can be used at a particular store (or chain) only. So, if Toys R Us issues gift cards in amounts less than $2,000 they would be exempt from the rules that govern prepaid access programs.
Exempts from the rule prepaid access products of $1,000 or less and payroll products if they cannot be used internationally, do not permit transfers among users, and cannot be reloaded from a non-depository source. - This would seemingly exclude all the reloadable GCs that we are familiar with. The key here seems to be the "non-depository source." A depository source would basically be a card that is reloaded at your bank, or directly via ACH, etc. The FAQ states: "Re-loads that are not made through a depository institution would include but are not limited to, reloads through retail store transactions (e.g., cash, check or credit card), wire transfers originating at money services businesses, or checks payable to a payee other than the provider of prepaid access." Therefore, all retail loads are not exempt because they are "non-depository." The exception here would seem to be debit card. Yes - it may actually be reasonable for a retail establishement to deny the use of cash and only accept debit because the source is instantly verifiable.

The brief continues...

FinCEN Brief said: ...and can be used without a later activation process that includes customer identification;
The above is true of most pre-paid cards you purchase. You don't need to identify yourself to use them.

...and continues...

FinCEN Brief said: ...or if a retailer sells prepaid access products (regardless of whether offered under a prepaid program) providing a portal to funds that exceed $10,000 to any person during any one day.
I'm not fully clear on this last rule. But, presumably, if I can buy a re-loadable card that will allow me to load over $10,000 on it (regardless of when I load, just that it could potentially provide access to $10,000 in funds) then they are subject to the above regulations.

So, are these retail locations (Supermarkets, Pharmacies, etc) considered "sellers" of prepaid access?

A very insightful administrative ruling, FIN-2012-R003 from FinCEN discusses the distinction further. It is defnitely worth a read. One interesting snippet:

FIN-2012-R003 said: If the Company sells a prepaid product from a defined MSB prepaid program that can be used before verification of customer identification, the Company would be a seller of prepaid access. The company also would be a seller of prepaid access if it sells any type of prepaid access, regardless of whether it is from a defined MSB prepaid access program or from another prepaid access arrangement, without having implemented policies and procedures reasonably adapted to prevent the sale of such prepaid access to funds that exceed $10,000 to any person during any one day. However, if the Companys prepaid access sales only involve products other than prepaid access products from a defined MSB prepaid program that provides access to funds prior to customer identification, and the Company has implemented policies and procedures reasonably adapted to prevent the sale of prepaid products that provide access to more than $10,000 to any person during any one day, then the Company would not be a seller of prepaid access.
The first sentence seems to clearly indicate that if you sell a prepaid product that can be used without verification you are a seller. It seems that the latter half states that if you are only selling products that require customer verification, and have policies that limit access to less than $10,000 a day you are exempt from "seller" status. For example, if I only sell a pre-paid card that requires you to register it with your name and has a maximum balance of $8,000 - then I might be excluded from being a seller.

"Sellers" and "Agents" or "Agent MSBs" are synonymous (based on my research)

It seems to break down like this:

A bank, like BankCorp, issues prepaid cards for a provider network, like InComm (Vanilla). The bank (being a bank) is not an MSB (although it has its own sets of requirements, e.g. BSA).
InComm is a marketer/distributor and while I don't actually see them listed on the MSB registration page, ITC Financial Licenses and IH Financial Licenses, Inc. are (see fine print here for relationship) are listed.
These MSBs work with retailers as their "agents" or "sellers".
Blackhawk Network/GiftCardMall.com is another example of the relationship between these MSBs and their agent retail locations.

An organization doesn't need to register if it strictly serves as an agent for another MSB. However, the parent MSB may require its agents to comply with certain policies. According to the FAQ referenced above:

FinCEN FAQ said: Sellers of prepaid access will need to develop and implement an effective AML program, report suspicious activity, and comply with recordkeeping requirements related to customer identifying information and transactional data. Sellers, as agent MSBs, will not have to register with FinCEN as MSBs.
In summary, it would seem that all of these retail locations are sellers/agents and, while they don't need to register, they still must comply with certain reporting rules and maintain a level of internal compliance. This compliance was mandatory as of March 31, 2012.So what/when does a seller need to file and how do they do it?Well previously they were done with the following two forms:104 - CTR - Currency Transaction Report - "This Currency Transaction Report (CTR) should NOT be filed for suspicious transactions involving $10,000 or less in currency"109 - SAR - Suspicious Activity Report by MSB - "provides complete protection from civil liability for all reports of suspicious transactions made to appropriate authorities" and agents who report this activity "may not notify any person involved in the transaction that the transaction has been reported." Additionally, "Any transaction conducted or attempted by, at, or through a money services business involving or aggregating funds or other assets of at least $2,000" - What is interesting to note is that there is no defined time period for the aggregate purchases and the form seems to indicate that it can span any length of time.As of April 2012 however it seems these forms are deprecated and all filing is done electronically here. It appears however that these forms are still used to collect information at P.O.S and can then be e-filed.Ok - so we are know familiar with a bunch of this terminology and some of these procedures. But, the real questions still remain:

Is it legal to buy/sell prepaid for credit?
What is the maximum amount of prepaid I can buy/sell?

#1 - I can't find anything that discusses the tender in which you use to purchase the cards (other than the non-depository exclusions listed previously).
From a terrorism/money laundering perspective, I don't think it matters to the government. Money launderers aren't looking to charge a bunch to a credit card - they already have the money, and they are looking to launder it.Therefore, I believe the policy to sell or not to sell for credit is strictly a store policy. This policy would most likely be in place to protect the store from "shrinkage" - basically theft/fraud/loss with invalid/stolen cards. It is quite possible that the prepaid provider networks that work with the store help in setting this policy. The question here is, if I buy with stolen/invalid cards, who pays? The provider network or the store? It is also possible that there are local state or city laws that set these limits with credit in an attempt to curb theft. That is a whole other topic - but at this point, I am unaware of any laws (or even concrete provider/seller policy) that restricts credit usage.#2 - Here too, there doesn't appear to be a limit, legally, as to what can be transacted. It seems that staying within certain limits only means that an entity may or may not qualify as a provider or seller for purposes of reporting and compliance. What is important is that the MSBs, and their agents, enact viable Anti Money Laundering (AML) policies, file Suspicious Activity Reports (SAR), and file Currency Transaction Reports (CTR) when applicable.I'm currently under the belief that the restrictions put in place by various retail establishments have been enacted alongside guidance of their MSBs to meet the following criteria:

A workable AML policy - This is not clearly defined by FinCEN, so I believe many err on the side of caution. They say "If we only allow $1000/day/person" that is well under any suspicious limits - so that's a good policy.
Mitigate aggregate spending in excess of $10K - An MSB or its agents would have to file a CTR if the aggregate spending by a person was over $10,000/day. If every WG allowed me to purchase $2000/day, I could easily hit up 6 of them in a matter of hours. This would mean that the MSB (through its agents) sold me $12,000 in a day. Since there is no easy way for them to track this, they can't very well file a CTR. Therefore, as part of their AML policy and to mitigate any CTR filings, they keep the limit low enough that it would be unlikely for me to reach it.

As for WG's policy? According to their internal handbook which the store manager looked at online with me. The policy is written such that even after he was looking at it for 10 minutes he couldn't 100% interpret it. At its strictest interpretation is seems they have a $500/day policy for all GC purchases. At its loosest, its $500/day in each type of card (meaning from each provider network, or parent MSB). It also doesn't matter how you pay - cash or credit - the limit is still there. Again, this is likely a very tight policy meant to limit the liability of both WG and their provider networks.I hope this was helpful to some of you in understanding the basics. I don't claim to have it all correct - but I think I have a pretty good start. This is a work in progress, and I'll try to update this once I finish looking at some more of the documentation I've found. I also encourage you all to research and contribute here. If we are lucky we have some people in the legal profession, or those that work with some of the companies involved and can give us some better insight.Here are some other references I found while researching. Some of them give pretty nice synopsis of what I discussed above, but I wasn't able to find them until I actually knew what I was looking for:FinCEN Webcast on the final rule (found this after I wrote this - *great* primer):

Additionally, "Any transaction conducted or attempted by, at, or through a money services business involving or aggregating funds or other assets of at least $2,000" - What is interesting to note is that there is no defined time period for the aggregate purchases and the form seems to indicate that it can span any length of time.As of April 2012 however it seems these forms are deprecated and all filing is done electronically here. It appears however that these forms are still used to collect information at P.O.S and can then be e-filed.Ok - so we are know familiar with a bunch of this terminology and some of these procedures. But, the real questions still remain:

Is it legal to buy/sell prepaid for credit?
What is the maximum amount of prepaid I can buy/sell?

#1 - I can't find anything that discusses the tender in which you use to purchase the cards (other than the non-depository exclusions listed previously).
From a terrorism/money laundering perspective, I don't think it matters to the government. Money launderers aren't looking to charge a bunch to a credit card - they already have the money, and they are looking to launder it.Therefore, I believe the policy to sell or not to sell for credit is strictly a store policy. This policy would most likely be in place to protect the store from "shrinkage" - basically theft/fraud/loss with invalid/stolen cards. It is quite possible that the prepaid provider networks that work with the store help in setting this policy. The question here is, if I buy with stolen/invalid cards, who pays? The provider network or the store? It is also possible that there are local state or city laws that set these limits with credit in an attempt to curb theft. That is a whole other topic - but at this point, I am unaware of any laws (or even concrete provider/seller policy) that restricts credit usage.#2 - Here too, there doesn't appear to be a limit, legally, as to what can be transacted. It seems that staying within certain limits only means that an entity may or may not qualify as a provider or seller for purposes of reporting and compliance. What is important is that the MSBs, and their agents, enact viable Anti Money Laundering (AML) policies, file Suspicious Activity Reports (SAR), and file Currency Transaction Reports (CTR) when applicable.I'm currently under the belief that the restrictions put in place by various retail establishments have been enacted alongside guidance of their MSBs to meet the following criteria:

A workable AML policy - This is not clearly defined by FinCEN, so I believe many err on the side of caution. They say "If we only allow $1000/day/person" that is well under any suspicious limits - so that's a good policy.
Mitigate aggregate spending in excess of $10K - An MSB or its agents would have to file a CTR if the aggregate spending by a person was over $10,000/day. If every WG allowed me to purchase $2000/day, I could easily hit up 6 of them in a matter of hours. This would mean that the MSB (through its agents) sold me $12,000 in a day. Since there is no easy way for them to track this, they can't very well file a CTR. Therefore, as part of their AML policy and to mitigate any CTR filings, they keep the limit low enough that it would be unlikely for me to reach it.

As for WG's policy? According to their internal handbook which the store manager looked at online with me. The policy is written such that even after he was looking at it for 10 minutes he couldn't 100% interpret it. At its strictest interpretation is seems they have a $500/day policy for all GC purchases. At its loosest, its $500/day in each type of card (meaning from each provider network, or parent MSB). It also doesn't matter how you pay - cash or credit - the limit is still there. Again, this is likely a very tight policy meant to limit the liability of both WG and their provider networks.I hope this was helpful to some of you in understanding the basics. I don't claim to have it all correct - but I think I have a pretty good start. This is a work in progress, and I'll try to update this once I finish looking at some more of the documentation I've found. I also encourage you all to research and contribute here. If we are lucky we have some people in the legal profession, or those that work with some of the companies involved and can give us some better insight.Here are some other references I found while researching. Some of them give pretty nice synopsis of what I discussed above, but I wasn't able to find them until I actually knew what I was looking for:FinCEN Webcast on the final rule (found this after I wrote this - *great* primer):

http://www.amazon.com/Kindle-eBooks/b?node=154606011
In this Kindle Singles Interview, President Barack Obama decried the "change in culture" that has changed our view of the American Dream. "There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous," the President said. "Kids werent monitoring everyday what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success." He addressed the jobs issue from a personal perspective, reflecting on how his own life might have been different had he not experienced success in politics. "I could picture myself being a good teacher," the President mused. In the interview, which took place on July 30, 2013, at an Amazon facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Obama discussed the increasing need for government programs that can actually make a difference. Sticking close to his standard message, he spoke frankly about the increasing polarization of American politics since the Great Recession and Republican Party intransigence over his agenda. On a personal note, he reflected that he and First Lady Michelle Obama are constantly reminding their daughters of the slightly unreal environment that theyre in, as children of privilege in a world constrained by unemployment and recession.The interview was conducted by David Blum. Blum works for Amazon as the editor of Kindle Singles. He began his career as a staff reporter for The wall street journal, and has been the editor-in-chief of The Village Voice, the New York Press and 02138 Magazine. He was previously a writer and editor at The New York Times Magazine, and a contributing editor at New York and Esquire magazines. He has written two books: "Flash in the Pan: The Life and Death of an American Restaurant" (1992), and "Tick...Tick...Tick...: The Long Life & Turbulent Times of 60 Minutes" (2004). He received his B.A. degree in English literature at the University of Chicago.Cover design by Adil Dara Kim/Official White House Photo

Comcast cable box return issue

Views: 9 Replies: 1 Looking to solicit some advice for my girlfriend. 1. In her prior apartment, the HOA subsidized the basic cable. For that reason she thought the cable box should be left in the unit (out of state) after she cancelled (2 months ago)
2. She returned the cable modem 2 months ago, nothing was mentioned about the cable box
3. Apparently for the last month they tried calling her to get it - but she ignored them thinking it was spam (I know...)
4. This weekend we called and found out they only wanted $140 to settle it, so we paid to make sure they didn't hit her credit report with a collection.
5. I traveled back to Chicago, FOUND THE BOX, but they will no longer accept it because we paid them (3 days ago)Has anyone experienced this? I don't want to waste a ton of time for 100 bucks, but any advice would be great.

Views: 103 Replies: 0 CNBC article: Auto insurance quotes can be 40% higher for drivers with less education and lower-job status.From the article:CFA went online to get price quotes for two hypothetical customers: a factory worker with a high school diploma and a plant supervisor with a college degree. Both were the same in every other way: a 30-year old single woman who rents in a moderate-income neighborhood, drives a 2003 Honda Civic, had no accidents or moving violations in the last 10 years and who went without insurance coverage for the past 15 days.The price-shopping took place in May and June with attempts to get quotes from the 10 largest insurance companies for the minimum required liability coverage in 10 major urban areas: Atlanta, Louisville, Chicago, Houston, Denver, Phoenix, Oakland, Seattle, Baltimore and Hartford.CFA found that five of the companies American Family, Farmers, Geico, Liberty Mutual and Progressive apparently consider education and occupation when setting rates:The Geico quote for the factory worker with only a high school education was significantly higher than the plant supervisor with a college degree: 45 percent more per year in Seattle ($870 vs. $599), 40% percent more in Hartford ($1,299 vs. $926), 33 percent more in Oakland ($922 vs. $693), 23 percent more in Louisville ($2,200 vs. $1,791), 21 percent more in Chicago ($1,013 vs. $840), and 20 percent more in Baltimore ($1,971 vs. $1,647).
Progressive also quoted higher annual premiums for the factory worker: 33 percent more in Baltimore ($1,818 vs. $1,362), 14 percent more in Houston ($1,406 vs. $1,236), 9 percent more in Louisville ($2,390 vs. $2,185), 9 percent more in Denver ($995 vs. $911) and 8 percent more in Oakland ($736 vs. $684).
Liberty Mutual's website would not even provide a rate quote for a high school graduate in five cities Atlanta, Louisville, Chicago, Denver, and Seattle but it would give a quote for a college graduate.

Option Strategies for Earnings Announcements: A Comprehensive, Empirical Analysis [Kindle Edition] was $49.99Ping Zhou (Author), John Shon (Author)http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009R6O392Publication Date: October 15, 2012Publisher: FT Press10 Reviews ★★★★By trading on corporate earnings, investors can reliably profit in both up and down markets, while avoiding market risk for nearly the entire quarter. In this book, two leading traders and portfolio managers present specific, actionable techniques anyone can use to capture these sizable profits. Ping Zhou and John Shon have performed an unprecedented empirical analysis of thousands of stocks, reviewing tens of millions of data points associated with option prices, earnings announcement returns, and fundamentals. Their massive analysis has identified consistent opportunities associated with focusing on the magnitude of the markets reaction to earnings, not its direction. Option Trading Set-Ups for Corporate Earnings News offers concrete guidance for improving the likelihood of making correct forecasts, and managing the risks of incorrect forecasts. It introduces several ways to exploit option trading opportunities around earnings news, discuss Crucial issues that most retail investors havent considered, and explore aspects of earnings-related option trading that have never been empirically examined and documented before. For example, they identify hidden patterns and potential opportunities based on valuation, industry, volatility, analyst forecasts, seasonality, and trades that immediately follow earnings announcements. Simply put, trading on earnings reports offers immense profit opportunities, if you know how. This book provides incontrovertible facts and detailed strategies, not just theories and anecdotes!Option trading on earnings reports offers immense profit opportunities, if you know how. For the first time ever, theres a comprehensive, evidence-based guide to profiting from these trades. This guide reflects analysis of the full universe of all equity options contracts traded over 14 years: objective, empirical results based on millions of observations. The authors distill this unique data set into knowledge you can immediately apply to identify trades with high profit potential and low market risk.Zhou and Shon demonstrate the impact of changes to holding periods, strike prices, expiration months, and other factors. Next, they walk through diverse approaches based on options trades made before, during, and after earnings announcements. Finally, they explore ways to improve profitability by identifying characteristics of securities most likely to support profitable earnings-related trades--even drilling down to specific industries and the impact of analysts forecasts.By trading on corporate earnings, investors can potentially profit in both up and down markets. Moreover, such strategies avoid taking market risk during non-event periods. Now, two leading traders and portfolio managers present detailed, specific, actionable techniques any moderately experienced investor can use to capture these sizable profits.Ping Zhou and John Shon have performed an unprecedented empirical analysis of thousands of companies, reviewing tens of millions of data points associated with option prices, earnings announcement returns, and fundamentals. They have identified consistent opportunities associated with focusing on the magnitude of the markets reaction to earnings, not necessarily its direction. Drawing on this extraordinary body of work, they offer concrete guidance for improving the likelihood of making correct forecasts and managing the risks of incorrect forecasts. Their analysis is based on solid, empirical evidence rather than selective anecdotes, which lends higher credibility to their recommendations. Their quantitative work also helps investors better quantify and manage risks. Option Strategies for Earnings Announcements introduces valuable new ways to exploit option trading opportunities around earnings news, illuminates Crucial issues most investors have never considered, and explores aspects of earnings-related option trading that have never been empirically examined before. Whether youre an options investor seeking profitable market-neutral strategies or an equity investor who wants to hedge earnings-related risk, it provides the end-of-quarter advantage youve been searching for.This is a remarkable book that I would recommend to any active investor who wants to explore event-driven strategies and go beyond simple buy-and-hold. Ping Zhou and John Shon provide some very detailed analysis on trading earnings news with options. They expertly cover directional and volatility trades and trades around earnings announcements, discuss the security selection process, and document the backtest results of their strategies.
--Minh Trinh, Managing Partner, Referee Advisors LLCThe authors have provided a remarkable analysis of how the timing of earnings announcements affects option value. This clarifies the true meaning of volatility, and the exhaustive research that backs up the authors conclusions leaves no doubt about the effects of earnings timing. Whether you prefer long or short positions, in, at, or out of the money, or volatility plays, you cannot ignore the importance of this work. I recommend this book to all serious options traders.

Saw this interesting post in New York Times: (Dated Wed. 7/10)You have to fly this weekend
Also on Thursday, Hilton HHonors, the loyalty program for Hilton Worldwide hotel brands, will also be coordinating its own travel-related stunt, Travel is Calling You, in Chicago. A golden rotary phone on a table in a pedestrian plaza will ring intermittently, and some who answer will be offered a weekend trip to Miami provided they can both depart the next day and find a travel partner.Chris Pagnozzi, a Chicago comedian, will be on the other end of the line, and when participants accept the offer, salsa dancers will perform and a pedicab will pedal the winners to a nearby AT&T store. There, they will receive an iPad Mini as well as smaller beach-related gifts like flip-flops and a towel. Four winners and their guests will fly on a chartered plane to Miami, where they will stay at Hilton Bentley Miami/South Beach with $1,000 in spending money.  Sounds like for the lucky few in Chicago, if you can just pack up and go for a weekend trip, they will pay for flight, hotel and give you some spending money as well!
Good luck hunting.

Sherry has always known there was something out there. She's eighteen, works for a tabloid newspaper in Chicago, and has a brother, Danny who is a lazy mooch. They live a pretty normal, dull life. Then the moon disappears and people start to go missing only to reappear later...but different. Sherry has an abusive ex-boyfriend who shows up on her doorstep and claims to be one of these beings. He's no longer the same person in that body. He tells her he has come to protect her and her brother and takes her underground, against her will, to save her. There they meet others like them. She begins to unravel the truth about Merrick, about what he's really doing here, about the way he looks at her, about the crazy new dangerous world they live in. Can he convince her that he's here to help? Will she like what she finds when she opens up to the truth? Will he be the one to love her when everyone else has failed her? Will he be able to protect her?

REQUEST: Amtrak "Around the US" advice
Added on : Monday June 17th 2013 05:00:09 PM
My mom has gotten the idea of going around the US (in a circular pattern) by train. It would be possible, though we would need to figure a bypass for the Katrina destroyed section in the South, in about 10-14 days. Using a Rail Pass makes it relatively inexpensive, but there is the problem of sleeping arrangements. For one thing they are pretty pricey, and the other is they are usually sold out. Since we are now wondering if a body could even take sitting/sleeping on a train for up to 48 hours straight and, perhaps more importantly, keeping my 10-year-old from going nuts, we have decided to take a test overnight run (maybe Reno to Denver). Just randomly running those prices seem a little steep, even factoring in AAA/Senior/Kid discounts, so I have a few questions:1. Besides the Rail Pass and the above-mentioned discounts, are there any other tricks to cheap tickets for Amtrak?2. Is say, the Seattle to Chicago leg (about 48 hours), a nice, relaxing trip that is enjoyed by all ages, or a bear?3. Can you sleep overnight in your chair without becoming crippled?4. How is the dining? Super expensive? Good? Or should we just pack some food?5. Will a 10-year-old boy go crazy? He has a Kindle (an FW deal) to, perhaps, while away the time if the scenery becomes monotonous. But could we charge it on the train or is he out of luck a couple hours in? Thanks for any advice or help.

King crab clusters- Jewel-Chicago
Added on : Wednesday June 12th 2013 08:00:12 AM
King crab has been outrageously expensive in the Chicago market for the last two years. I don't have a feel for what it goes for around the rest of the country. Jewel has (now thru Tuesday) king crab for $8.99/lb which is the cheapest I've seen it in years. If you combo with with the wear your Blackhawks jersey on game days and get 10% off you are effectively paying $8.09/lb. Just got home and will be having crab for dinner tonight, and probably more on Father's Day.

Evolution: A View from the 21st Century (FT Press Science) [Kindle Edition] - was $34.99James A. Shapiro (Author)http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0054KOKZ2Publication Date: June 8, 201128 Reviews ★★★★#1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > History > Americas > United States > Military History
James A. Shapiro proposes an important new paradigm for understanding biological evolution, the core organizing principle of biology. Shapiro introduces Crucial new molecular evidence that tests the conventional scientific view of evolution based on the neo-Darwinian synthesis, shows why this view is inadequate to today's evidence, and presents a compelling alternative view of the evolutionary process that reflects the shift in life sciences towards a more information- and systems-based approach in Evolution: A View from the 21st Century.

Shapiro integrates advances in symbiogenesis, epigenetics, and saltationism into a unified approach that views evolutionary change as an active cell process, regulated epigenetically and capable of making rapid large changes by horizontal DNA transfer, inter-specific hybridization, whole genome doubling, symbiogenesis, or massive genome restructuring.

Evolution marshals extensive evidence in support of a fundamental reinterpretation of evolutionary processes, including more than 1,100 references to the scientific literature. Shapiro's work will generate extensive discussion throughout the biological community, and may significantly change your own thinking about how life has evolved. It also has major implications for evolutionary computation, information science, and the growing synthesis of the physical and biological sciences.James Shapiros Evolution: A View from the 21st Century proposes an important new science-based paradigm for understanding biological evolution. Shapiro explains how conventional evolutionary theory (as elaborated from the neo-Darwinian synthesis) has become outdated, and he marshals new molecular genetics and DNA sequence evidence to reinterpret fundamental evolutionary processes.

Shapiros new information- and systems-based paradigm integrates important phenomena such as symbiogenesis, epigenetics, and natural genetic engineering. He demonstrates how active cell processes can drive the rapid, large evolutionary changes seen in the DNA that cannot be adequately explained by earlier theories.

Evolution: A View from the 21st Century is likely to generate extensive discussion throughout the biological community and might change your own thinking about how life has evolved. Shapiros vision also has major implications for evolutionary computation, information science, and the growing synthesis of physical and biological sciences.

About the Author
James A. Shapiro, Professor in the University of Chicagos Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, is a leading bacterial geneticist, the discoverer of transposable elements in bacteria, and the key researcher involved in first organizing the field of mobile genetic elements. The earliest proponent of natural genetic engineering as a basic feature of evolution, he has been a leading scientific critic of orthodox evolutionary theory for 20 years.

Shapiro is co-editor of DNA Insertion Elements, Episomes, and Plasmids (1977, Cold Spring Harbor Press), editor of Mobile Genetic Elements (1983, Academic Press), and co-editor of Bacteria as Multicellular Organisms (1997, Oxford University Press). He holds a Ph.D. in genetics from Cambridge University.

Vegan Indian Cooking: 140 Simple and Healthy Vegan Recipes [Kindle Edition] - was $19.95Anupy Singla (Author) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008FOSJXSPublication Date: July 6, 201252 Reviews ★★★★.5#1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Cookbooks, Food & Wine > Regional & International > Asian > Indian This beautiful follow-up to Anupy Singla's widely praised first cookbook, the Indian Slow Cooker, is a unique guide to preparing favorite recipes from the Indian tradition using entirely vegan ingredients. Featuring more than 50 recipes, and illustrated with color photography throughout, these great recipes are all prepared in healthful versions that use vegan alternatives to rich cream, butter, and meat. The result is a terrific addition to the culinary resources of any cook interested in either vegan or Indian cuisine.Singla--a mother of two, Indian emigre, and former TV news journalist--has a distinctive style and voice that brings alive her passion for easy, authentic Indian food. Some of these recipes were developed by her mother through the years, but many Singla developed herself, including fusion recipes that pull together diverse traditions from across the Indian subcontinent. She shows the busy, harried family that cooking healthy is simple and that cooking Indian is just a matter of understanding a few key spices.As Singla sees it, acquiring and using the proper spices is the key to preparing her healthful recipes at home. Singla has recently brought to market her own line of traditional Indian spice trays (also known as a masala dabba), which is being sold by retail outlets like Williams-Sonoma. Vegan Indian Cooking builds off of Singla's vast expertise in simplifying and perfecting Indian spices and unique, custom spice blends, making delicious Indian cooking accessible to even the most hurried home chef.About the Author
Anupy Singla formerly worked as an on-air TV reporter and anchor for CLTV News, the cable arm of the Tribune Company broadcasting and sister station to Chicago's WGN-TV, and for Bloomberg TV. Her food writing has appeared in several print and online publications including the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, and the wall street journal. She's demonstrated her Indian cooking skills on WGN-TV, WLS-ABC and numerous network affiliates across the country. Her previous book, Indian Slow Cooker, is a number-one bestselling Indian cookbook on Amazon.com. She lives with her husband and two young daughters in Chicago, IL.

Help me out with some housing decisions
Added on : Friday May 31st 2013 08:00:06 AM
Ok - I come to my FWF with open ears for some advice. This is a bit lengthy, so if you'd rather not read please move on. Those of you with real-estate experience, families, and the inner struggle of trying to be frugal but still wanting quality of life are most appreciated (though all constructive thoughts are welcome).
I'm currently in Chicago condo which I bought for $335K in 2006 and is now, if I'm lucky, worth about $250K. The condo is a 3BR - ~1300 sq ft, occupied by my wife and I (1 room), my 1 year old (1 room), and the 3rd room (which is legally a bedroom, but has french doors) acts as my office. This latter fact is important - as I work from home (company based in another state). We plan to have a second child (at least in my wife's belly) by the end of the year. We need (want?) to move. At first it was because we know we will need more space for the second child. Things are also a bit cramped with my working from home and getting a bit more space will be less of a distraction.
We also wanted a better school district and place to raise our kids, maybe a yard, and a place to play with toys that isn't in the middle of our living room.I've been looking around the suburban areas which are within the radius of where we want to be (that is no more than 45-60 mins from O'hare and some other suburbs where family lives). I've been using sites like Redfin and Zillow - I haven't actually engaged any realtors and gone out looking yet. What I am finding - exclusive of school districts - is that a place just the size and style I would prefer it at minimum $450K. Even moving up to $600K I wouldn't be getting what I would be fully happy with.Now let me stop and state to anyone not in the Chicago Suburban area - prices are ridiculous. Everyone who doesn't want to live in the city wants to live in the north, north-west, and western suburbs. They don't want to go too far out because either they commute to Chicago or they don't want to live out in the sticks. I honestly wouldn't mind living in the sticks, but we are beholden to these same higher-price areas because of where our family lives and my need to get to the airport with some regularity. There are of course some less ideal suburbs scattered throughout and their prices are lower, but it usually isn't just a matter of location - the houses just aren't as nice either.I am doing ok financially. I make low six figures (my wife is a home-maker), and we have pretty good savings (both retirement and otherwise). I would have ideally $250K from the sale of my condo (the mortgage to which I am good with, and should be even better when I take out a new one on the house). My father is planning to provide a very generous gift to the purchase of a new home - perhaps $200K. So, between these two sums I can meet my $450K no problem. I could even plunk down another $100-150K and while it would deplete a nice portion of my liquid savings, it wouldn't create any major financial stress.BUT...I hate the idea of a mortgage...the idea of debt and being tied down to it. Although I know that my life now means I can't run off and join the circus, or backpack through the Himalayas - I still don't like the idea of knowing I will be living to pay this off. However, I do have a family - they need a place to live - I'd like to make that place comfortable, safe, and perhaps a bit luxurious (or at least not sparse). So I have a couple of options right now. I am trying to weigh the financially responsible thing to do with the most livable options for me and my family. I'd love to hear your constructive comments:Option One - Buy as much as I can afford (without emptying my bank accounts)
This means spending close to $600K (with the various funds mentioned above).
Pros - Good sized house (2500-3000+ square feet) in a well rated suburb. Close to airport, family. In short, my laundry list above.
Cons - It still won't be what I want. I would be spending everything I could comfortably do and still only be getting a 3000 sq. ft. house in a location with some of the amenities I would want, but not all. I might have to buy a house that is 50+ years old (as opposed to newer construction), it might be too "suburban", etc. In short, I'd probably have to increase my spend closer to 800K+ which I am unable to do. Option Two - Buy something to match my current situation
This means spending about $450K with the sale of my condo and my father's gift
Pros - Probably a smaller house (max 2500 sq ft) in a slightly lower quality suburb. Still close to airport family - as this is pretty much not debatable.
Cons - Amplified cons of #1 above. However I'm spending less, and won't feel as "strapped" - my savings stay where they are and work for me.Option Three - Buy something closer to what I sell my condo for
This means spending $200-250K with the funds from the sale
Pros - I will likely get a better mortgage rate than I have now. After taxes and home maintenance increases with a home I would likely be about the same as I am now. This is a totally comfortable situation for me financially.
Cons - Amplified even more of #1/#2 above. What I am looking at doing is just saying "to heck with a nice suburb" and to a lesser extent "to heck with a nice place." I would probably get a place in an ideal location (geographically) regardless of the quality of the suburb (as long as it isn't a dangerous neighborhood). The house would most likely be 50+ years old, ~2000 sq. ft. It would, in effect give us the room we *need*, but not the space of quality we would really desire.Option Four, Five, Six????-With Option Three I am likely discounting good schools under the assumption that we will likely only stay there about 5 years and move again once my kids are ready to start elementary. I can also get a better ARM rate under this plan. Of course this means in 5 years home prices and mortgage rates may have gone up again and it will only be more expensive to find an ideal place. Of course, at this time, I hope my savings will have also increased.If I am considering option #3 then I also have to think with a renter's mentality. If my goal is to stay there for only 5 years - should I really buy?
What about buying it flat out so I have no mortgage? Should I just pay $250K straight out or is the mortgage debt better to keep?
If I am going to buy it flat out - should I keep my current place to rent until the value recovers? Or just get out now.
Another concern I have is my job. I've only been here a year and don't plan on leaving - and so far they seem very happy with me. However if I were to lose my job not only would it hurt financially, but I may have moved to an area that makes commuting to a job in the City, or a more populated burb more difficult.I'm sure none of these scenarios are new...but they are new for me. I'm hoping to get some balanced opinions other than just the standard FWF approach of "just live in a crown vic in your family's driveway."Let me close by saying that my wife and I are mostly home-bodies...so a comfortable living environment has always been appreciated. I look at a house as a home and not an investment - that being said I don't want it to be a poor financial decision.

Target B&M - Just Dance 4 for Wii, PS3, or XBox360 $0.99 YMMV
Added on : Wednesday May 29th 2013 09:00:06 AM
Step 0 - Go to http://weeklyad.target.com
Step 1 - Go to Amazon Link for Just Dance 4
Step 2 - Print it out and take it to your local Target store.
Step 3 - Go to gaming section and pick up "Preorder" cards (cost $1) in the games section.
SAVE $20 ON A SELECT GAME WHEN YOU RESERVE AN UPCOMING NEW RELEASE FOR $1* TARGET EXCLUSIVE Chicago Bears franchise. Offer available in stores only. *Quantities limited; no rain checks. Reservation cards cost $1. Games include Grand Theft Auto V, Battlefield 4, Assassins Creed and Madden 25
Step 4 - Ask associate to retrieve copy of Just Dance 4 from behind locked display case.
Step 5 - Walk to customer service with Target Associate to perform PM (Target is still new to PMing, so they are done in the front).
Step 6 - Give copy of game to associate and tell them you would like to PM to Amazon.
Step 7 - Wait for associate to pull out their store iPAD to bring up Amazon's price to confirm price of $19.99, and adjust price.
Step 8 - Hand "preorder" card to associate and watch the confusion on their face as the price drops from $19.99 to -$0.01.
Step 9 - Be prepared to defend your PM with knowledge of Target's PM policy. This is the YMMV part. Use your social engineering skills here to allay the qualms of the associate. If you think the Target associate will hand you the game and a pay you for taking it, think again. You could pay for other items here so the total isn't negative. I bought some health/beauty items that I needed anyway so it wasn't as suspicious.Or cite Target's PM policy, available here Target PM policy
Suggestions: It may be easier to "mask" the cost of the negative purchase price by buying other things you need. I walked around the store and picked up things I needed anyway, then headed to the games section and got the games.SO here's the math.
Spend $1.00 buying the preorder card.
Spend $19.99 buying the PM'ed game.
Receive $20 discount on the game once the preorder card is scanned.
Subtotal $0.99 YMMV

To Rent or Sell?
Added on : Monday May 13th 2013 11:00:07 AM
We are looking to move out of our 3-br condo in NW Chicago. We purchased right before the bubble burst at $335K. It is a full rehab building only about 6 years new.This is an 4 story 8 unit building and the other unit on my floor just sold from a bank-sale at I believe $237K (still awaiting all final details of contract).
A garden unit in the building was unable to sell in their short time frame to move so they are renting instead. They apparently signed a lease for their place @$1900 a month.I was waiting to do anything with my unit because (in addition to not knowing exactly where we want to move yet), I didn't want to compete with the other units that were up for sale.I think in a best case scenario I could probably get about $250-260K for my place - still taking a loss of about 75-85K (20-25% of what I paid).My current mortgage + assessment is somewhere around the $1400 range. Taxes on the unit and deeded parking run about $5K a year. If I was able to rent my place for $1900 I would be able to cover all of these expense.
Since my unit is a top floor - as opposed to the garden unit that just rented, I could see myself getting another $100-200 more in rent.I am trying to decide if I should keep a hold of this place in addition to purchasing my new home in hopes that the real estate situation will improve and I will be able to sell in a few years at less of a loss.
If I am bringing in say $2K a year above mortgage/taxes/assessments, over the course of 3 years I will have grossed only $6K. If the current values only rise say 5% over that time then I will only net an additional few thousand from the sale of the home. Not to mention the hassle of being a landlord, or the chance that something major will happen with the unit (appliances, plumbing/electric, horrible tenant, etc.).I think I would probably be able to get the second mortgage for me new home. We would likely be looking to spend at least the same or more than what I originally put down for my condo - and I would be able, if necessary to probably put 50%-75% down on the new home if it was required. So, assuming that I can get the mortgage - and assuming I could afford both situations (assuming I had the renter) - which is the best option?I'd like to know if there are any gospel rules on how much rent I need to be bringing in to deal with situations and still, at least, break even. Also - even if I am not breaking even, is it worth it to pay a certain amount yearly in hopes that the market will recover enough so that the 25%+ loss I currently have might decrease?I really have no experience in being a landlord, or property - with the exception of being a renter myself for many years, and now owning this first condo.thanks for any advice.

Performance Rubbers on Sale at Tire Rack (multiple brands)
Added on : Monday May 06th 2013 08:00:06 AM
I've been religiously following Tire Rack prices on performance all season tires for the last 2 months and noticed as of yesterday they dropped prices on several great tires across their performance categories. The deal is even hotter if you can stack it with any of the mfg rebates available here. Don't forget FC!Here's a few really good tires you should consider buying if you're in the market. These prices are based on my tire size (235/45-17), so YMMV on sale prices. Protip: you'll know which ones are on sale if there's "Special" listed next to the price.Summer Tires
$175/ea....Michelin Pilot Supersport 235/45ZR17 ...................... (#1 summer tire on market now)
$138/ea....Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position 235/45R17
$115/ea....Continental ExtremeContact DW 235/45ZR17 .......... (Best bang for the buck)

All Season Tires
$132/ea....Continental ExtremeContact DWS 235/45ZR17 ............... (Best all-around all season on the market, very good performance in snow. IMHO this is worth the extra $$ over the General Tire ones below)
$155/ea....Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position 235/45R17 ... (Compromises some snow grip for better, sportier dry/wet handling)
$102/ea....General G-MAX AS-03 235/45ZR17 .............................(Bang for buck king)
$107/ea....General Altimax HP 235/45R17 ............................. (Bang for buck queen, but go with the G-MAX over this one. I owned a set years ago)
$185/ea....Goodyear Assurance Tripletred 235/45R17 ..........+ $80 MFG MIR w/ purchase of 4
$106/ea....Kumho Ecsta 4X 235/45R17 ...................................+ $50 MFG MIR w/ purchase of 4 (not on "Special" but rebate and regularly low price makes this a hot deal)I didn't see any snow tires in this size on "Special" but there was a closeout on the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4, which are supposed to be an improvement on the popular PA3's.Tire selection protips: 1) Keep in mind that "All-Season" is more like "Three-Season", and that a dedicated set of even mediocre winter tires will drive circles around the best all-season tire in snow and ice. Winter tires also significantly improve stopping distance in snow.
2) The phrase "jack of all trades, master of none" certainly applies to all-season tires.
3) It's always best to do a lot of research and make sure you buy tires based on the weather you encounter in your part of the country. Living in Chicago, I run a set of sporty-all seasons from Aprilish-Novemberish and then switch to dedicated winter tires for the worst of winter. I personally prefer not to install summer tires since the temp can swing wildly here above and below the minimum temperature of summer tires (typically 40F, below that summer tires harden and will lose traction).
4) A lot of people see tires (and brake pads) as "consumables" and buy whatever's cheapest since "they're just going to wear out anyways". However, think about this: What is the common link between the two most important safety aspects of your car in an emergency situation (Braking & Handling)? Tires. Every performance aspect of your car relies on your tires since that's the actual contact point on the road. So why do we skimp on tires?

3) It's always best to do a lot of research and make sure you buy tires based on the weather you encounter in your part of the country. Living in Chicago, I run a set of sporty-all seasons from Aprilish-Novemberish and then switch to dedicated winter tires in between. I personally prefer not to install summer tires since the weather can swing wildly here above and below the minimum temperature of summer tires (typically 40F, below that summer tires harden and will lose traction).
4) A lot of people see tires (and brake pads) as "consumables" and buy whatever's cheapest since "they're just going to wear out anyways". However, think about this: What is the common link between the two most important safety aspects of your car in an emergency situation (Braking & Handling)? Tires. Every performance aspect of your car relies on your tires since that's the actual contact point on the road. So why do we skimp on tires?

Best financial route of action for a speeding ticket
Added on : Tuesday April 23rd 2013 10:02:16 AM
I was driving to St. Louis this weekend from Chicago for a family event.On 55N I was clocked doing 80 in a 65 in Logan County, IL and pulled over by a State Trooper.It was a quick transaction - I didn't have anything to say and the officer had only his faux "be careful" speech while handing me over the little slip of revenue generation.I have a clean driving record - last time I recall getting a ticket was probably 5+ years ago during a yearly speed-trap event set up near my home. I don't recall, but I'm sure I would have taken the traffic school option to not effect my license.The ticket is for $120. I'm out that money no matter what. My option is to request "court supervision" where, somehow - even though the ticket is still reported, it won't be a mark on my license.I talked with an attorney out of that county and they say it will cost $300 to get court supervision on top of the $120 ticket. This is the county fee - not the attorney.So I have the option of paying $300 more for the mark not to appear on my license. I'm curious as to how much this would actually effect my insurance rates were it to reach my license.Is $300 now better than the higher insurance rates I will pay for the next 2-3 years?If I want to go the court supervision route, I then need to decide whether I want to drive the 6 hours round trip out to Logan County or pay the attorney $250 to take care of it for me.
That's a net $200 after gas - and a day I need to take off of work.WWYD?
Anything I need to be looking out for?I had all of my federal stafford loans refinanced through Direct Loan Servicing a few years ago. They've been fantastic to work with.
I hated Sallie Mae. You call Direct Loans and you get someone on the phone in 2 minutes and they are from the US. You call Sallie Mae and you get "John" from "Chicago" with an Indian accent so thick I can't understand a damn thing he says.Has anyone dealt with CoStep before? I've never heard of them.
Help finding new bank offering "FREE" checking
Added on : Monday April 22nd 2013 03:02:38 PM
I did a search to try and find past threads about this and came up empty.I've had a bank acount with fifth third since '92 (original bank was not 5/3 but got swallowed up by bank mergers back in early 2000's). I always had the cheapest "FREE" checking account where I would get paid 0 interest, but mostly everything else including check reorder was free.5/3 has repeatedly kept changing their account structure while forcing their customers to choose one of their "new" accounts at least 4 times in the past 7 years. Each time they tell me my old account is no longer grandfathered and that I must choose a new account.I'm reached my boiling point with them. I received a letter this past December stating the same thing. Please call or visit a branch to roll your account into a new product or we will automatically roll your existing account into a new account which may end up in additional fees being charged to your account!Well I basically use 5/3 as my free checking in which I write standard paper checks and have both my wife and my paychecks automatically deposited. That's it. I don't need online billpay, free ATM (rarely use ATMs as I use my rewards credit cards for all purchases) etc. Just a basic "FREE" account that doesn't pay interest and is free from the usual "high minimum balance" while offering free checks.Does anyone have a list of current banks offering "FREE" checking (I live in Illinois near Chicago)?

LinkThe Unrelenting Blues Feeling blue and hopeless, but not sure why? Is depression robbing you of your zest for life? Is there an emptiness hovering over you, morning, noon and night that you just can't shake? Does the thought of a restful night's sleep seem like a thing of the past? If this description sounds familiar, this book has beneficial information for you. The author will explain how many times depression is caused by a hormonal imbalance of estrogen and progesterone, which can easily be cured by replenishing these deficiencies with natural medicine. With millions of women struggling with depression, the author believes that these women should be made aware of all of their options in resolving their depression and not just the options with the best profit margins. London Tracy is a self-proclaimed researcher, investigator and advocate for women's health. "For Women Only" is a compilation of everything that the author has researched and experienced about hormonal depression is women. "If you want to know why so many women suffer from depression, read this book."

Added on : Friday April 19th 2013 12:04:43 AM
So I'm booking a -mostly- surprise trip to Chicago for my wife. We're nearing our 1 year anniversary and my FWF deals recently just kicked off in a big way. I'm going to be averaging ~1k/month for the next 9 months and feel comfortable with spending a bunch on a 3-day vacation.We live and go to school in Iowa, so really, anything in the city would be fine. Do any of you have any recommendations for places to visit that give you a solid bang for your buck in Chicago? Facts:
We are in our early 20's.
We like trying new things.
We don't like dancing.
We do like comedy, shows, etc.
This trip will be mid-May.Thanks!

Ten Interesting Things About Human Behavior [Kindle Edition]
Suzanne Davis (Author)
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006RDFHCK
Book Description
Publication Date: October 1, 2011
Ten Interesting Things About Human Behavior is a short, lighthearted look at 10 things human beings do, why we do them, and their significance in our everyday lives. How do we resolve psychological conflict that occurs when our behavior violates our attitudes? Why are we so quick to blame others for their behavior while offering excuses for our own? What should we make of the talking heads on cable TV who argue about the cause of TV violence on children's behavior - whose explanation is correct? Why are reality TV shows, some of which portray contestants as pathetic and dysfunctional, so popular?Questions like these usually provoke different answers from different people, each of whom may attribute his or her answers to "common sense." One person argues that "of course children mimic violence they see on TV - my kids do" while another attributes it to "poor parenting - because my kids don't." Which is it, and why?Research psychologists try to answer these questions as best we can. This book is a brief look at the answers to 10 aspects of human behavior - answers derived from controlled behavioral research that is designed to test various theories about behavior. Certainly, there is more to human behavior than the 10 things I chose for this short book. And there are hundreds of primary sources and research reports that describe the research findings in more depth. They're out there if you'd like to read more.But for those who are new to the field of Experimental Psychology, 10 Things may pique your interest in learning more about the subject. And for those "armchair psychologists" out there who'd like a quick read about the most fascinating creatures on the planet - human beings - I think you'll like it, too.

The Fireball Kid [Kindle Edition]
Bill Palmer (Author)
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0054H3Z38
Book Description
Publication Date: June 4, 2011
The Sandlot meets The Wonder Years in The Fireball Kid - the story of 12-year-old Danny Voss, a South Side Chicago kid growing up in the racially charged mid '60s.
All Danny dreams about is playing baseball for the Chicago White Sox when he grows up, but 1964 presents some serious obstacles: The toughest teaching nuns in the Chicago Archdiocese. The Little League team and Coach from Hell. A major crush on beautiful, big-haired Gloria. Plus, a well meaning but extremely frugal father, a younger sister who wants to be a priest and a mother that thinks Danny's road to the Major Leagues is paved with her meatloaf.
Except for surviving a secret trip to Riverview, the worlds most dangerous amusement park, the summer of 1964 is hardly going Dannys way. But quicker than a Sandy Koufax fastball, Danny is flush with cash after taking a part-time clandestine job working for Willis, a charismatic black man who lures suckers to Riverviews African Dip" attraction. Dannys rep as the Fireball Kid earns him a spot on the Monarchs - an all black inner city ball team Willis manages. Its not long before the Fireball Kid finds himself playing in the game of his life with his big league dreams and his best friends life on the line.
The Fireball Kid is a hilarious and moving coming-of-age story that feels as good as spending a day at your favorite ballpark with a couple of best friends and a few cold beers.

FREE COUNTRY: A Penniless Adventure the Length of BritainThe plan is simple. George and Ben have three weeks to cycle 1000 miles from the bottom of England to the top of Scotland. Theres just one small problem they have no bikes, no clothes, no food and no money. Setting off in just a pair of Union Jack boxer shorts, they attempt to rely on the generosity of the British public for everything from food to accommodation, clothes to shoes, and bikes to beer.During the most extraordinary of challenges, George and Ben scavenge through rubbish bins, search for the Loch Ness monster, wash dishes, clean hotels, sing Christmas carols for food, swim in lakes, descend Cornish hills on childrens bikes and cook a barbecue for 30 old people in a field. They spend the night in a greenhouse, a canal boat, a posh hotel, an empty house, a pub, a tent in a car park and a barn with a bull. Through the course of their hysterical journey they are clothed, fed and sheltered by the generous people of Britain; from llama farmers to onion farmers, students to lifeguards, a former rock-star to a former hit-man and Michael Eavis in a pair of hot-pants. They blaze a trail of open doors and warm hospitality the length of this green and pleasant land, proving that - both monetarily and opportunistically - Great Britain is undoubtedly a Free Country.
A question on "true" surcharge free ATMs
Added on : Sunday April 14th 2013 10:01:04 PM
So, when doing a search for a true surcharge free ATM you get a lot of hits for Allpoint, Moneypass, Co-Op network.On the surface these look like surcharge free ATMs, but it seems to me they are only free if the card you are using is a member of one of these networks (has the logo on the back - or the financial institution confirms membership).So these aren't true surcharge free if your card isn't a member (say a credit card which you want to do a cash withdrawal).Any tips on finding true no-surcharge ATMs...people say in Credit Unions, but I have the feeling most credit unions are a member of one of the networks above. I know Costco has $1.25-1.50 charges - but looking for 100% free.I'm looking specifically in Chicago so if anyone knows and wants to share (or at least PM me) would be appreciated.
Termination!! Obviously sob stories.. What to do next?
Added on : Saturday April 13th 2013 06:02:20 PM
Hello, I hope that you are having pleasant day. I've been learning a lot from FW finance forum- today, I humbly ask for your honest opinion of what I should do next. Since I didn't want to get this issue known to anybody(though this is anonymous forum... crazy, I know), I used Alt-ID and for that, I am genuinely so sorry about those who don't like to see Alt-ID: never knew I would be the one that would be using it. After the graduation of college, I decided to stay at college town so that my fiance could finish her degree. (I majored in Economics, for those who care). Since I wanted to do something useful while waiting, I started my first career as a teller in a local bank. Even though I knew that being a teller wasn't going to strengthen my resume, I worked really hard as if becoming teller was my destiny. I quickly reached incentive level and reached top 10 percent of tellers among five states, which was all good. The cash flow from being a teller wasn't big enough, but I was able to put food on the table along with some nice gift for my gal. I was a happy man back then. Then the cookie started to crumble. The relationship between my fiance and me went south- after breakup, I realized that I do not have any connection or friends. While I don't want to say that the time that I spent with her was a waste, I certainly should have had my personal life. I was floating in middle of nowhere in geographic sense(not in a big city like Boston, Chicago, San Francisco etc) either. I was stressed as is and this was what happened after a week of breakup. I was preparing to move to another big city so that I can finally start my second beginning albeit it was without her. We, as retail tellers, occasionally help the commercial tellers because there is so much for the commercial tellers to do. That day was the day that commercial room wasn't able to handle the workload that they are given. After 5:00PM, I realized that I was 5.14 dollars short from the drawer and the commercial room asked for the help they needed. Grudgingly any available retail tellers started to help them out. At 7:00PM, everybody was tired and wanted to go home. At the very last deposit, I found a deposit slip where they did not write down the amount of deposit. THIS WAS WHERE IT WENT WRONG. For some reason, I put 5 dollars less than what the actual deposit was (not 5.14!!!). I did not know what got into my head- the balancing wasn't my motive to put that money into my drawer since I ended up writing off 14 cents. My balancing rate was more than 95 percent so I knew for sure that my supervisor would not mind me being off 5.14 dollars let alone 14 cents. My coworkers saw me underwriting from the deposit and reported to supervisor that I shorted them for 5 dollars. Few minutes later, managers available at 7PM all gathered up and asked me whether I did that terrible act. He asked me whether I really did that since he could not believe the fact that I, who were so enthusiastic and friendly about this bank, would commit this serious issue. I told them the truth as I wouldn't lie. They asked me that whether I have been doing that more than once and I told them that I did not. If that was the case, I would've denied the fact that I shorted commercial deposit at the first place instead of admitting it. They agreed that I am not the character like that and yet were deeply shocked by this incidence. They told me to correct the transaction and come back tomorrow for further action. Feeling terrible and befuddled about the motive of force balancing, I showed up to my work after that day. I have concluded that the recent crumble with the relationship that went south interfered with the clear thinking that I always had. They took the whole day to investigate whether I shorted other customers to balance myself. Of course, they was not able to find the supporting evidence as I never did such act prior to this. After escalating this issue to vice president and HR, they decided to terminate me. I was asked to sign the paper where it read as "the bank has lost trust to employee XXXXX for this action and has decided to terminate his position". However, the head of HR told me that the bank and supervisors do not believe that I did this in any malicious way- but they have to follow the compliance. Long story short, I was terminated with free of charge(no, they did not call police), which was fortunate. The head of HR further told me that they will only verify the start date and duration of employment, the tile as a teller- they would not answer the question of eligibility of rehire. She added that they use the term terminated for every single person who leave the bank: whether it is their own accord, retired, or terminated. I honestly think that this is the end of line for me- I lost everything that I took pride and loved. I lost my fiance, and now I lost my career where I once took my pride and excelled at. With the big termination mark at teller job, I do not think that any financial institution would hire me. I wanted to apply asset management careers after getting myself married and moving to a big city but all those dreams turned into ashes. Honestly, who would hire me after hearing this story? While I certainly don't hope that this would lead to depression or any sort, I would like to ask for your opinion. Am I done for the life? Would I be better off throwing myself from the building? <-Okay, that was little bit extreme, but I really, really don't know what to do. I don't even know whether I should be posting this. Please share me your thought.

A variety of genres in the hope you'll find something you'll enjoy!Murder Behind the Closet Door, Abridged, Book One (Detective Bill Riggins Paranormal Mysteries) by Christopher Pinto (Mar 20, 2013) - Kindle eBook
LinkEdited for a faster read! Over 100 pages eliminated from the original, for those who would rather "get to the point". Book One of a Condensed Trilogy.The Original "Murder Behind the Closet Door" is filled with side-stories, literary descriptions and character depth that not all readers find as interesting and thrilling as other. This condensed trilogy is for you! The Story:
"A 5-Star rated murder mystery - ghost story full of adventure, the occult, and dark souls, Murder Behind The Closet Door is an excellent novel for anyone who appreciates Noir fiction, Mickey Spillane-style mysteries and a Stephen King-style thriller wrapped up in one truly original, well told story."(Note: This book contains sex, strong language, violence, and very scary situations. Not for the timid. If it were a movie, the rating would be NC-17. It is a book written for people who love to fall deeper and deeper into a layered mystery. Reading this book is an adventure.)A dilapidated house with an evil secret in the basement. An auto-wrecking yard with the devious, rusted remains of a murderer's getaway car. An unsolved bank robbery with hundreds of thousands of dollars never found. A detective trying to solve an age old murder before his ticker runs out. A slow, agonizing death for an unfortunate victim and his soul reaching from beyond... "Murder Behind The Closet Door" is a murder murder mystery ghost story that keeps you engaged and guessing from the first paragraph. Creepy, riveting, this mystery-ghost story reveals another existence, one just beyond our own, where the occult and the paranormal meet reality and everyday people find themselves swept into very extraordinary circumstances. The story is set in Ocean City and Wildwood, NJ during the late 1970s (with flashbacks to the '30s & '50s), and centers around a young woman who begins her career marketing an amusement pier on the world-famous Wildwood Boardwalk on the Jersey Shore. Just as Heather's adult life really begins to blossom, her torment begins. Not long after moving into a 70 year-old rooming house, Heather's mundane life takes an uncontrolled turn toward insanity. Although she refuses to acknowledge her ghost, a mysterious entity begins to taunt her, an entity impetuously determined to contact her through her bedroom closet. At first these mild encounters are merely disturbing.... Aspirations of a life of quaint mediocrity vanish as she and her friends try to discover the Motives of her tormentor, finding that the truths in which she believed her entire life had been nothing but an elaborate veneer. As Heather falls deeper into the mystery, she finds the physical world around her is much stranger - and more terrifying - than she could ever have imagined.What's missing from the original?
Several "side" stories, including life in Wildwood, NJ in the late 1970s, interesting tales of the characters, and individual charachters' thoughts and revelations. The author, and most readers who enjoy longer books, find these add a considerable amount of "likability" to the book. However, at Stardust Publishing realize that many people in today's fast-paced world would rather cut to the chase. This series does just that, concentrating on the action, without some of the humorous or interesting details.

Georgiana's domineering aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, has determined that Georgiana shall marry, and has a list of eligible bachelors in mind. But which of the suitors are sincere, and which are merely interested in Georgiana's fortune? Georgiana must learn to trust her heart--and rely on her courage, for she also faces the return of the man who could ruin her reputation and spoil a happy ending, just when it finally lies within her grasp.

=================================================No Mud, No Lotus by Maya Yonika and Ben Jayston (Mar 13, 2013) - Kindle eBook
LinkNo Mud, No Lotus is a humorous but gritty journey out of substance addiction and sexual trauma and into Sacred Sex and Neo-Tantra! Its the raw, honest, and intimate biography of a Maya who stars in a controversial documentary film about Tantra: Code name "Tantric Seduction, the Dance of Maya."
This isnt the usual life story of a Sacred Sexual, Tantric practitioner, filled with New Age lingo and promises of ecstatic sexual Bliss. Rather, its the genuine, real account of a regular girl who seeks emotional and psychological healing from a past of sexual trauma, abuse, and addictions. No Mud, No Lotus chronicles Mayas determined journey to find depth and meaning within love, sex and relationships.
It also tells the story of Father Ron who believes its Mayas destiny to stand at his side as a Sacred sexual healer, and invites Maya to travel the world with him as his mate and to teach Tantra. Together, they go to places where the lines between black and white, shadow and light, the sacred and the profane become maddeningly unclear and contradictory. But Mayas past already endowed her with strength and a critical eyeassets she didnt know she had-- which serve as her beacon of truth as she negotiates the darkened maze that is Neo-Tantra as practiced in sexually over-charged New Age circles.

Hi Guys,Long time lurker--first time poster. As I have found the FWF community to always be quite thoughtful and helpful, I would like to hear some thoughts, opinions and advice.I'm currently in a top 3 MBA program ready to graduate in May. I've received a few offers and I am concerned whether I am maximizing the potential income that I will be receiving.Let's me just say first that I know income isn't the only part of jobs, but let's assume that the other factors such as growth opportunities, culture, people, work life balance, etc., are satisfactory.Some details on me: I'm 30 years old (which is slightly old for a typical MBA grad). I have a prior Masters degree in statistics from a top program (done right after undergrad) and an undergrad in Computer Science from a state school, where I received a full scholarship. I have 5 years of work experience at a Fortune 100 large corporate healthcare company, located in a very low cost of living city, doing big data / analytics consulting. I moved into a Manager role / title, including hiring, performance reviews, managing clients, project work, etc., after the first 3 years. I've gone through a leadership development program at that company. Upon leaving, I was at a salary of $100,000 with bonus of usually 10%, but often a bit more. I thought that was very competitive, especially given the extremely low cost of living.So, the question is, what should someone with my background be commanding? Assume a corporate setting or a high growth small business. Assume healthcare industry, non-finance. Assume data / analytics management responsibilities.Some data points I received:
Typical entry level data scientist in the West Coast (eg. Facebook): $115K
Typical consulting MBA grad associate level (eg. McKinsey, Bain): ~$130K base with 20% bonus
Typical Director level salary at my old company: $150K-$160K base with unknown bonusSome offers I received:
Typical consulting firm in Chicago: $125K base with 20% bonus
Fortune 100 healthcare company in Boston: $120K base with 5% bonus
Small business consulting-like company in Washington D.C.: $135K base with 20% bonus, up to 30% bonusCost of the MBA:
I assume this to be around $450K+ when including the opportunity cost. It's around $100K a year when including tuition, fees and living expenses. On top of that is the $110K salary not earned each year (2 year program) plus yearly increases unearned.So, the feedback I am seeking: are these offers fair? Should I take any of them? What should I be expecting in terms of numbers? Should I keep looking? Should I strive to find something I love that might potentially have a much lesser salary (say $100K)? I feel like with 2 Masters degrees from top schools, 5 years of experience including formal management experience, a fairly high previous salary, I should be doing a bit better than average median graduating salary no? And certainly, it should be significantly higher than entry level data scientist? I just feel like with all those education / opportunity costs, I gotta make the next job pay well.I welcome your thoughts and responses. Thanks in advance.

13-sigma move in JGB on April 5 - can this ever happen in the US?
Added on : Friday April 05th 2013 07:01:23 PM
Last night's was the biggest market move I've ever observed live since October 20th of 1987 Chicago pit open in Eurodollar futures. Of course, the uncharacteristicly unleaked Japan's "shock and awe" announcement is to blame - which tell me nothing quite of that magnitude will ever happen here. Because why ever make an announcement without your "friends and family" take a position first... Just against the modern American culture
In my town (north of Chicago), we have Sam's Club and Lowes close by. Sam's Club sells the highly rated ProForce commerical grade concentrated carpet cleaner (1 gal) for around $7. It is equivalent to the $20 solution normally sold with rental machines. The undiluted-50/50 dilution of the ProForce cleaner also can be used to remove stubborn spots.ProForce carpet solutionLowes rents the Bissell Big Green machine. I've used this and the RugDoctor units and in my opinion, the Lowes unit does a nicer job. Bissell now has a $5 off coupon for a 24 h rental from Lowes which normally costs about $22.Bissell cleaner couponSo if you have both stores nearby and a membership with Sams Club, you can do a pro job at a relatively low cost.

Help make college decision
Added on : Thursday April 04th 2013 04:02:03 PM
My son has been fortunate enough to get accepted into quite some colleges and it has lead to interesting challenge of shortlisting one of them. At this point, he plans to do Computer Science followed by MBA or Law. But things may change.He got into the following amongst other such as UChicago and John Hopkins that he is not considering.
1. UC Berkeley - in state tuition about $13K/yr
2. USC - University of Southern california - Full ride with honor research program that pays about $3K/yr. It would have been a easy decision to not consider USC if they were not offering full ride.
3. Caltech - Tuition about $40K/yr.My wife and I think that where one goes for undergrad is important as this is the brand that carries for life. Moreover some employers (Mckinsey, Facebook, etc) only go to top tier schools for recruitment and are therefore leaning towards Caltech.What do you think? Looking for pros and cons so that we can make an informed decision.Thanks

First time home buyer help : Fixed or 5/5 ARM mortgage ?
Added on : Sunday March 31st 2013 02:01:13 PM
We are looking to buy our first home in Chicago suburbs. We both are recent graduates and our combined take home pay after taxes and health insurance, etc. is around $120,000. Maximum we want to spend on home is $300,000 and want to take loan for $250,000. We do not have any children and hoping to save $50,000 per year for paying off home loan and want to pay off the loan as soon as possible. I have been trying to figure out the best type of loan for my situation. I tried few online mortgage calculators but did not yet find a comprehensive one (e.g. option to include points). I am hoping to get some advice from FW community. I have credit card and car loan with Penfed. So thinking of going with Penfed for mortgage and I am looking at the rate information here: https://penfed.mortgagewebcenter.com/CheckRates/GreatRates.asp?P... . Mainly I am considering two scenarios.1. 10 years fixed rate loan with 2.5% rate (with 0 points). Penfed estimate for closing fees is $5721.2. 5/5 ARM with 2.75% initial rate (with 0 points). With their current promotion, Penfed pays closing costs, and gives credit for first month payment. Obviously, I do not know the interest rate after 5 years. If everything goes as expected we may pay off the loan in 6 years. The main reason I am looking at ARM is because of no closing costs and first month payment credit.Do you guys see any flaw in my thinking?. am I missing something or are there any better options than the above two?. Thank you very much in advance.
Considering buying a condo
Added on : Friday March 29th 2013 05:01:01 PM
Hello!Im 23 years old in the Chicago suburban market. One of my friends is relocating to the suburbs in the summer and we are thinking of getting an apartment together. After some careful research, it seems like it may be wise for me to purchase a condo, helping us to save even more.Im finding short-sales for under $50,000 for 2-bed, 1 bath units. Assuming a 25% down payment, my monthly mortgage would be around $185, HOA is around $300, taxes around $125 for a total of $610/month. Going rate for 2-bedroom apartments in the area is around $1100 or so. I was thinking of charging my friend $475/month for rent (plus we split utilities), making my portion of the rent only $135/month. Id want to pay it off sooner, so Ill add in an extra $250/month going toward the principle. Anyways, Id probably stay here for a couple years, then use it as a rental, which as long as I can get at least $610/month (easily), I should be in the clear. Im thinking its a good way to get into investment property at a low price with low up-front costs ($12.5k downpayment), and I will need a place to live anyways. Once I move out, I should be able to net around $400/month after HOA/taxes. Not a lot, but in theory, should be more than enough to cover any long-term costs.

Live On Lakeside documents the final days performance at the Chicago stop of the Dave Matthews Band Caravan, a series of four multi-day festivals celebrating the groups 20th anniversary in 2011. Though Matthews and his cohorts possess plenty of verve, they sound as if theyre waging war with one of those oppressive Midwest summers. The jams dont explode so much as they build, plateau, and then melt. A good example is Seek Up. One of the oldest pieces in the setfirst appearing on 1993s Remember Two Thingsit gradually grows into a moody exploration of neo-Weather Report fusion.

Need help...home construction cost
Added on : Sunday March 17th 2013 10:01:00 PM
Hi all,I am in process of building/buying a home - pursuing different options I guess.
I am looking for best returns for the $ I spend....nothing more nothing less...I hate to fall into builders traps - trying to show couple of plans and even if you ask them to change a dry wall it costs an arm an a leg...
for option one, i.e. buying a lot and then building home, (just a mid range home, with mid range appliance..nothing fancy)...what can I expect the building costs to be? people are quoting me a wide range....e.g. a builder I know of says $110/sqft all inclusive another says $160/sqft all inclusive....i.e. plan, permit, drawings, material, cabinets, light fixtures etc.etc...off course this is excluding land/lot price. with this much price variance I am totally confused....What is the general construction cost for a typical single family home per sqft? with a certain % of profit for builder...
I live in Illinois (Chicago burbs) if it matters when it comes to costs... Thanks all for your input.

United's mistake but I had to pay.
Added on : Wednesday February 06th 2013 10:01:39 AM
I booked tickets for myself and family (including a 3 month old baby) from Singapore to Chicago using my UNITED miles.The total was 97,500 miles + $400 in taxes. All our names were in the system, and I have print outs with confirmation, a single confirmation number with all our information. On the print out, all our names are there including the baby, but no eticket number for baby, which I thought was normal since the baby will be traveling on the lap. (it even says infant on lap in the confirmation email from United)Even though it was booked through United, we flew Singapore airlines to Amsterdam and then connecting was United to Chicago. I will try to make this straight to the point:1. When we arrived at airport, the airline (Singapore) said baby does not have an eticket #.
2. After 2.5 hours of investigating and calling United, United claims I added the baby at a later date therefore I did not pay the taxes + 10% fare for the baby.
3. I tell them I did no such thing but they would not listen and insist I pay USD$950 for the baby (10% of full fare + taxes). The truth is this booking was made in November 2012 for February 2, 2013 travel.
4. Because I had no choice, I quickly paid and Singapore Airlines who was sympathetic to us, actually held the plane for us. If I had missed this flight, I would have to pay for the entire family.What should I do? My first call yesterday to United fell into deaf ears. They just dont get it. They said I must have added the baby later therefore the system did not calculate the baby's fare, which is NOT true. I am guessing it was a glitch in their system. The 10% fare and tax for the baby is MORE than a one way ticket from Singapore to Chicago (USD$880 the last time I checked). I told them why wouldnt I just buy a regular ticket for the baby at this price, and they said there is no possible way that fares from Singapore to Chicago can be $880. I told them I can show you proof and the CS lady said she didnt need proof and that she has been working for United for over 16 years and fares cannot be that low. I told her so fares are usually around USD$10,000? And she said yes, usually. I gave up and slammed the phone on her.What should I do? Dispute this charge on my credit card? Just treat it as an unfortunate experience? Any help appreciated.

I am getting married in august. My wife to be does not have a passport.I have a few questions.If she gets a passport now do we have to pay again later to get her name changed on it, does it have to be changed before we travel, and is it the full price to change, or just an edit fee.If we cannot get the passport figured out, we are unsure what to do. We would like to go on a cruise, but all of the ones I have found except Hawaii ( which is out of our budget) need a passport. We would like something tropical, and something that is kind of planned for us. Our budget is about $1500, but we are flexible. We are coming from Chicago. Thank you for any recommendation.

https://www.blackjet.com/Once you get to the site type this in: COOLBLACKJET100 BLACKJETOn-board with the affordable new face of private jet travel 
Whether you're a million-miler or a once-a-year traveler, you'll likely agree that commercial air travel has become a hassle. For those few that can afford it, owning your own plane could be considered the epitome of luxury. That option becomes available to more individuals and businesses with the various forms of fractional ownership, charters and shares packaged by the type of plane or hour. Blackjet, the latest innovator in the luxury travel space, has devised a booking model that enables most of the private travel experience at a dramatically reduced cost for seats on private planes, opening up the experience to a much larger group of travelers.We were fortunate to try out Blackjet on a trip between New York and Miami and were dangerously impressed. Blackjet sells seats on flights, not entire planes, which means the experience is technically semi-private. Regardless, we found the notion of being on a flight with a few strangers in tighter quartersas opposed to a hundred of them on a larger planewell worth the convenience, fluidity and accommodation Blackjet offers. This included super-simple online booking, driving ourselves to Teterboro airport and having the car valet parked and our luggage whisked away before boarding with CH mascots, Sealyham terriers Otis and Logan, in tow. And as with most private travel, no need to pass through scanners and baggage checksyou simply walk a few feet from the terminal to your plane.
The Blackjet experience starts by procuring a membership. Existing members can invite friends, and get incentives for doing so. Fortunately we have a promo code to share with you, but more on that later. Signup involves authorizing a $2,500 membership fee, which is charged along with your first flight. From there you can browse the "Deals" section, which lists upcoming flights that have available seats. Deal seats are offered at a 10-20% discount from the regular seat fare. If a deal isn't available for your desired destination and time you can book a regular seat, which is guaranteed so long as you're at least two days ahead of travel time. Regular-priced seats cost anywhere from $1,700 for a flight between New York and South Florida (charters for these regional jets typically cost $20-$30,000) to $3,500 coast-to-coast.
The value of Blackjet increases the more you use it. Booking flights and referring members earns you complimentary seats for yourself or a companion as well as other freebies like limo services and catering. If using a complimentary companion seat at booking the cost comes down to $850 per seat on shorter flights and when you factor in free "Deal" seats the total cost per year gets even more reasonable. While the scheme doesn't make private travel accessible to everyone by any means, it is a game changer in the private travel segment.Blackjet's innovative model works based on a mix of filling planes that otherwise would be traveling empty and achieving efficiency with the right volume of bookings. The team behind Blackjet isn't new to the gameCEO Dean Rotchin is an aviation industry veteran and the founder of Green Jets, a jet share service started four years ago. With new money from the investor team behind the similarly inspired car service Uber, Green Jets has been reborn as Blackjet. The service currently has flights between New York, LA and South Florida, and travel to San Francisco, Las Vegas, Chicago, DC, Boston, Dallas and Seattle is coming online by Spring 2013. They are also happy to charter flights to any destination at more traditional rates.
Blackjet will only succeed if it scales, and as it does the incentives for members get even betterwhich means the time to join is now. Blackjet has offered readers the option to join and get one complimentary companion seat ($3,500 value) plus three invite codes for friends. Go to blackjet.com and enter the code COOLBLACKJET100 to sign up.

Lien on Property
Added on : Sunday January 27th 2013 02:00:59 PM
I have a single friend who purchased a condo in downtown Chicago (Brand New Building) and now lost his job which resulted in him not being able to pay his mortgage. After the place started to go under a foreclosure process, he also stopped paying his assessment. The bank offered him Deed and Lieu but he then found out he has a lien (contractor) on the property on the amount owed to the bank. His lawyer found out that the company that did the closing for the purchase of the condo, does not exist any longer. Now my question is what he should do with this condo? He has another place to stay but he just wants to deal with the condo and move on. Also, does he have to pay the assessment? Thanks in advance!

Calendars $5 at Walgreens in store YMMV

My local Walgreens in Chicago had wall calendars on sale for $5. There were a few designs including kittens, puppies, wolves, national landmarks, One Direction band, Maxine the cranky old lady, and a cartoon style cats one. Good deal for 2013 calendars IMHO.The landmark one has some pretty nice landscapes. Great for work if you're stuck in a basement like me.

In the CVS flyer, they have Coke, Diet Coke, and Coke Zero 12-packs on sale 4 for $10. In addition, if you spend $30 on selected items you get $30 in reward bucks. (Limit 5 free cash cards per cardholder per week. Doesn't say there is a limit on how much coke you can buy.)
Putting YMMV on this, because I don't know if it's a national sale. I'm in the Chicago market.Maybe punch in your zip and check local flyer here:

It does say the limit is one for the coupon and they are enforcing it. So out the door my cost was $7.47(plus tax of course). Hurry because they were going fast. Not sure if this price is at other Costco's as well.

Health Insurance for Mother
Added on : Monday January 07th 2013 05:01:10 PM
Situation
Mother is on father's health plan, however plan is going away when business partnership ends next year
I pay mother's insurance premium as my parents are divorced and mother cannot afford alone on her salary - ~$1,200/month
Mother had breast cancer 2 years ago and I need to make sure she remains insured until medicare kicks in, she is currently 62
I am afraid no one will insure her once plan ends
I am in New York and she is in Chicago. Currently I am paying out of pocket and trying to explore alternatives. Could I ask my employer if she can come onto our company's plan? Can I claim tax deduction or use flexible spending dollars for the current payments? I am happy to pay but I want to make sure that she continues to get the best coverage possible while trying to limit my monthly costs.

I Bleed Cubbie Blue: My Six Decades as a Cubs Fan -Kindle ($4.99 ) Free
Added on : Thursday December 13th 2012 05:00:54 PM
http://www.amazon.com/Bleed-Cubbie-Blue-Decades-ebook/dp/B00AGME...Why would anyone root for a team that hasnt been in a World Series since 1945 and hasnt won one since 1908, has had just 20 winning seasons since 1939, and plays in a ballpark thats nearly a century old and is falling apart? I Bleed Cubbie Blue, a memoir of one fans six-decade love affair with the Chicago Cubs, offers a charming and compelling answer to this burning question. Combining personal memories and reflections with meticulous research, native Chicagoan Doug Erlandson describes his lifelong affection for a team that has raised but ultimately crushed his hopes countless times, a team to which he remains intensely loyal after nearly sixty years of fandom. Beginning with a description of the first game he attended in 1954 (a loss, of course, to the New York Giants), he weaves highlights from every season from the late-1950s through 2012 with detailed descriptions of significant games, front-office follies, trades (some of which should never have been made, others of which turned out to be sheer genius), as well as the individual players (from the great to the incompetent) who toiled in a Cubs uniform during this period. I Bleed Cubbie Blue provides often humorous, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, but always accurate commentary on P.K. Wrigleys college of coaches, the Brock-Broglio trade (which, according to Erlandson, did not seem like such a bad trade the day it was made), the collapse in 1969 (which still ranks as quintessential of all Cubs swoons), why Leo Durocher was a great manager (and why he was not), the lean years of the Seventies and early Eighties, the wonderfully giddy year of 1984 (along with a detailed account of the two most important games of the season), a year that ultimately resulted in the second Great Disappointment (the first being 1969), the improbable divisional championship of 1989, why Kerry Woods fifth Major League start was and remains the greatest pitching performance of all times, why Steve Bartman was not to blame for the Cubs loss in the 2003 playoffs, and much, much more.
Along the way I Bleed Cubbie Blue describes bizarre plays (such as Cal Neemans unlikely inside-the-park homerun when Bob Skinner forgot what inning it was), the tragic death of Ken Hubbs at age 22, the pitcher who claimed he pitched in a hypnotic trance, Jack Brickhouses call of an around-the-horn triple play (before it happened!), the unintentionally funny moments with Harry Caray in the broadcast booth, and the most memorable performances by guest conductors during the seventh-inning stretch.
A comment from the Epilogue sums up Erlandsons reason for writing this memoir: Whether in winning or losing, the Cubs have provided me with countless memories that are as wonderful and as fresh as the beautifully-manicured baseball diamond that has anchored the northeast corner of Addison and Clark for a hundred years.

First Home Buying for Mom Advice
Added on : Saturday December 08th 2012 04:00:58 PM
I am looking to put an offer in on a house today. It's listed for 70k, but I am going to offer 60k since it's been on the market for a while and they just had an offer fall through. I should know by tomorrow if I get the house. It's in Columbus Ohio. I am buying this home for my mother. It's in a pretty decent area, and is in really great condition. 3 br 1100 sq/ft, taxes at $1500 a year. I will likely buy my own place in Chicago or Miami depending on work in the next 1-2 years. My income is around 95k, and looks to be increasing with my business. I will probably spend between 100k and 200k when I get my own place if the location works with my job. First off. I got a pre approval from chase with 20% down (so no pmi), at 3.7apr 30 year. Or 3.5apr with 1point, 3.3apr with 2points. Is that a good deal, or should I look elsewhere? And should I pay points? 1 or 2? Is the FHA loan any better? I want to take the mortgage deduction also from this home, so it looks like I will have to stay there for 14 days a year. Right? The place also has a separate 2 car garage. I am going to try and use that just for storage for my business. Can that be deducted separately? Best way to handle that deduction.Finally, I am going to charge her $500 a month rent from her SS, but am paying the entire down payment myself. Rent in this area is typically 900-$1100, but the $500 will cover mortgage, tax, and insurance. What is the best way to handle that income for tax purposes? Sorry for so many questions, I just want to make sure I don't miss anything here. Answer one or as many questions as you can A thousand thanks

Chicago Parking Ticket - Scam after 15 yrs?
Added on : Sunday December 02nd 2012 04:01:09 AM
Ok, I received a CRA demand for an unpaid Parking Ticket from 1997. I don't recall if I received the ticket, but if I did not sure whether it was paid or not. This is in Chicago. Anyone have any ideas on how to deal with this? CTI is the agency, which appears to have a lot of reviews on harassing people. From what I can tell there is no SOL on tickets, but my credit is totally clean and this popped up. I'm no longer in Illinois and not sure how they found me. I heard they have a new law and are going back 22 years for unpaid parking tickets. Any ideas or experience with this is appreciated. Thanks.
Number porting with Straight Talk from different provider
Added on : Thursday November 29th 2012 05:01:07 PM
Sharing my experience porting Eleven year old number from T-Mobile to Straight Talk.
My number originated in Chicago IL and have been carrying with me via different provider across US Cities.
When I bought Straight Talk phone I was told that number porting is easy and take 2-48 hours.The challenge started when I initiated porting my number (Chicago IL) to Seattle WA location.
I was told that, if I want to keep the number I need to be in Chicago to enable programming on the phone.
However once the number is programmed I can change zip code across any city.Essentially, its neither practical to go Chicago nor loosing eleven year old number to use Straight Talk.
I finally dropped out of Straight Talk and in the process of returning their equipment.
Straight Talk rep were very cooperative during the process.
They do know this limitation and cant do anything about it.I appreciate if anyone have success story in similar cases.
Until Straight Talk fix this limitations I hope my post would save time and efforts of fellow members.

Two names on title, one out of state
Added on : Monday November 26th 2012 12:01:29 PM
Recently, I moved from MD to IL. I want to sell my car for a different one before my 30 day grace period on Chicago city sticker ends (December 7th). For expediency, just going to trade in car to dealer. Car is titled in MD to myself and my father. No and/or between names, just both there. I can see on the application for title on the back there are the choices of "Joint tenants" or "tenants in entirety", but to the best of my ability, I can't determine how my title is structured. I did read elsewhere online (without a source) that in most states you have 30 days to surrender the title after sale. I'm going home at Christmas, so we could both sign & notarize the new title then, but that seems unlikely to me, especially since the dealer's plan seems to be to send the car to a wholesaler, not resell it themselves. Previously, when I changed the registration from WV to MD, I just had my dad fax a form for Power of Attorney I believe. I see there is this form for IL as well (does not require notary). Could I do this for the sale? Would I use the MD form or the IL form? Any helpful advice would be appreciated, thanks!

Job Decision Help?
Added on : Friday November 23rd 2012 11:01:18 PM
I've been wrestling with this wonderfully horrible decision to make in regards to jobs and thought I'd pose it to the FWF community for comments.Current job (after January 1st): 15 days vacation + 8 holidays per year, 40 hour work week, 3% 401k match, $6k/year for medical insurance which covers 70% of costs (this is important as we have 2 small children so we can't avoid all medical costs). We, in part because of a horrible rental property that we can't do anything with for a few years (Bank of America won't renegotiate anything and the house is heavily under water), currently have about $15k in credit card debt which is at 0% interest until October 2013. Salary is $92k/year and I'm topped out at my current location. My job duties will change in January requiring me to increase my commute from 30-45 minutes each way, to 2-3 hours each way 3 out of 5 days a week (other 2 days will remain at 30-45 minutes)...all at no increase in salary though mileage will be reimbursed. Expected pay off of debt will take 2-3 years.Option 1 - Chicago: Pay increase of $18k, 27 days vacation + 10 Holidays per year, 40-50 hour work week, 7% 401k match + full pension (which includes medical if I can stay there 10+ years), $4k/year for medical insurance which covers 90% of costs. Relocation will cover all but about $5k in relocation costs. With the additional relocation costs, it would still take roughly 3 years to pay off our debt. The job is precisely what I want to move my career towards in the IT Security field. Openings at this location are really hard to come by because people tend not to leave.Option 2 - Germany: Pay increase of $18k but an effective pay increase of much more because it's structured to be entirely tax free. 27 days vacation but 0 Holidays per year. 40 hour work week consisting of working four 10 hour days a week, 3% 401k match, $4k/year for medical insurance which covers 90%. The job is better than what I'm currently doing but perhaps not as good as the job in Chicago. It would take less than a year to pay off our debt. Relocation costs would cover all but about $7k-$10kSo the big question I have - would you take the better job with better long term benefits (Chicago) but take another 2-3 years to pay off the debt meanwhile renting a house in the Chicago area until the debt is taken care of, or would you take the higher paying job which will only last at most 3 years in order to rapidly pay off the debt now, have benefits that are much lower long term with little to no guarantees of a job opening similar to Chicago when we return. Career outlook would still be pretty good, just perhaps not quite as goodThoughts?

Twinkie Arbitage: Fun and Profit from Hostess Going Out of Business?
Added on : Friday November 16th 2012 04:00:58 PM
So with Hostess likely to go out of business, people appear to be engaging in a twinkie buying panicand are willing to pay outrageous prices for them. A scan of eBay shows at this time a few hundred listings of twinkies selling for between $20 and $40 a box - and many of these show that at least some people are actually buying at that price! Considering (1) the shelf life of twinkies and (2) the amount of profit between selling even at $20 a box, I suspect there is the opportunity for fun and profit here - now and a few years down the road assuming Hostess does really go bankrupt. And I guess that would be your risk here - that the bankruptcy court does not allow them to liquidate.

Added on : Monday October 29th 2012 06:00:06 PM
The price dropped on this 2 pack of Stainless Steel trash cans, now $17 (from $19.88). The SKU is 320-974, UPC 6951800606982. You get a 19L and a bonus 5L can. Both have an inner plastic liner that pulls out in case you spill liquids in it. This is a really good deal if you have the $15 lawn and garden mulching game coupon, your end cost would be $2 + tax. This appears to be a Home Depot knockoff of the Simplehuman trash cans (small one costs $19.98 alone). I tried to find these online, but no luck, I've seen plenty of these in stock in Chicago,IL stores. I was able to find a photo of these here:2 pack trash cans

Buying used car in Chicago suburb from private party
Added on : Saturday October 20th 2012 12:00:51 AM
I am thinking about buying a used car in Chicago area. I need some tips. I want to buy from a private party because it should be cheaper. I checked in Craigslist, but 99% of all ads are from dealers. Chicagotribune has many private party ads through cars.com but their used car prices seem ridiculously high, sometimes higher than MSRP when new. I am a big Consumer Reports fan and have identified a few 2007, 2008 models form the latest issue of their Best Used Cars that I am considering.
Please provide me with some helpful used car buying tips.

First Time Home Buyer (in Illinois) Questions
Added on : Thursday October 18th 2012 10:00:52 AM
First Time Home Buyer QuestionsHi FW Members - I have seen many questions on here get fantastic answers and was hoping for some to my problem.For the last 10 years, I have worked at a job where an on-site apartment was part of the compensation. Therefore, I have not paid rent or owned in the last decade. I am currently married. I was a FW member for most of that time so I have a decent chunk of savings. I recently got a new job in downtown Chicago while my wife works in Hickory Hills (about 20 miles apart). We have one car and would like to keep it that way. We are looking to possibly buy a house somewhere in between our two jobs that is close enough to public transportation so that one of us (likely me) will take the train to work.I have no idea where to start. I have gone over some of the basics shown on this site: http://michaelbluejay.com/house/Our finances look like this:Liquid Savings - $235,000 (making 1% interest)
Retirement - $50,000 (mostly in index funds)
Net Household Income (after taxes) - $6000 / month
Monthly expenses (groceries, restaurants, entertainment, insurance, parking, wife's clothes/grooming, gas, 2 phones) - $1500 (we don't pay rent/utilities currently)
No other real assets apart from one paid off car.
No other debts
Excellent credit for both of us. Last credit card I applied for was the Hyatt card for both of us in April which we were approved for right away.
Our current apartment is 2 bedroom/1 bathroom and is just big enough. So we cannot go any smaller than this.
I am 30 and my wife is 29. We have no kids but likely will in the future.I have until Mid January to move out of my current apartment so I have about 3 months to find a place. I can put the majority of the 235 K in savings towards the purchase since I'm not making much interest on it. I'm not too confident about my investing skills so I haven't done anything else with it. Ideally we would like to buy a house but are not completely opposed to renting if it makes more sense. We are also open to the idea of multiple units where we can live in one and rent out the others. We will probably have kids in the future and will likely stay in the state. However, we may apply for different jobs if better opportunities open up. We're not in a place where we are confident that each of us will stay in our current jobs forever.Questions:
Do I really need an agent? If all the agent really does is provide listings from the MLS and basic advice, can I just do that myself?
Is there a public MLS available for Illinois?
Can I use a public MLS type site and FSBO site to find the house and then have the inspection/appraisal/closing costs done myself?
What would be the best way to approach my problem considering my financial and commuting situation?
What books/websites/forums do you recommend so that I can educate myself about this process?
Since short sales take so long to go through and I only have 3 months, should I even be looking at these?
Should foreclosure listings be part of my search with my current lack of knowledge?

Strategic defaulters being targeted by the OIA?
Added on : Tuesday September 18th 2012 05:00:55 PM
http://www.chicagotribune.com/classified/realestate/foreclosure/...I can't for the life of me believe they will do this all across the country. Doesn't each state have different laws on what you owe after a foreclosure/Shortsale? Some you owe money and some don't due to recourse or non recourse? Didn't some banks write off the loss. The only thing I see people have to worry about if IF THEY LIED ON THEIR NEXT MORTGAGE application. But didn't half the loans during the prior boom have liar loans and how many of them were prosecuted?

22 yr old thinking of buying condo
Added on : Friday August 24th 2012 05:00:49 PM
Hello!Im 22 years old and a recent college graduate in my first job in the Chicago suburbs. Im currently living at home, but am entertaining the idea of moving out and buying a condo. My parents are charging me $500/month for rent/food at the moment. My credit score is somewhere between 740 and 760. I am in a stable job making $47,000 per year. I have zero debt and about $23,000 in savings / stocks.There are a few two-bedroom condos in the area that are either being short-sold or just sold for between $40-48,000. Im considering moving out and purchasing one of the condos. I would rent out the spare bedroom for around $400-450 (below market price, but to ensure I would be able to find another recent graduate who may not be able to afford the higher $800+ rents. HOA seems to include gas, water, and heat. Only utility would be Electric + internet. This list below is assuming I take a $35,000 30yr mortgage at 4% and overpay $65/month (in essence a 15 yr mortgage with more flexibility). I would plan on putting $12,000-15,000 down on the unit. This does not include the possibility of a roommate which would then essentially add $400/month to my savings to $1,375 per month. 401K is 6% (employer matches 4.5% when I put in 6%, so yearly, thats about $4,935 into my 401k). Once emergency fund hits $2,000, I will stop contributing and add $100 to savings.Thoughts?Mortgage240

Company sponsored MBA or Stanford/Univ of Chicago MBA?
Added on : Friday August 10th 2012 01:00:49 PM
What would you do in my situation? My company would pay for me to get an in-state MBA from OSU/ASU/Mich State/etc type of school, or I can attend Stanford or University of Chicago out my own pocket, taking on roughly 180k in debt. I have 100k cash I could put towards school.Currently 27, single, B.S. in business, making 100k, I work with software and produce results, so an employee or worker-bee. I'm at the peak of my earning, I can only look forward to 5k stock bonuses and maybe 4% raises. How do I get to the next tier? I see FW post after poster making 300k+.Will a top tier MBA open more doors for me?
EDIT: My other FW post said I was married, that was me posting on behalf of my friend, but it'd be too hard to explain his story from 2nd hand...so I did first person for simplicity.
New Job negotiation, plz help
Added on : Tuesday August 07th 2012 10:00:54 AM
I'll try to provide some details about the offerI am working in Chicago in IT Field, and applied in few companies in NY, IL, CA. after several interviews, I got offer from one of the company in Los Angeles.
Now, the pay is 10-15% more than what I make right now.
but some of the other benefits I'm getting less in the new offer. Please help me decide which one to choose, current job or new offer.1) Old Job = 3 weeks PTO from very first day New Job = 1 week PTO for first year, 2 weeks later
2) Old Job = 12 Sick days per year New Job = 5 sick days (which is okay, I don't use them anyways)
2.a) Old job - insurance started from 1st day New Job = after 3 months, they will start the health insurance
3) No 401K match 401K match
4) 400$ for Health Insurance (but 5K out of pocket) 600$ for health insurance (but 2K out of pocket, need to inquire more about this)
5) bad management, no structure Seems good management, lot to learn for personal growth
6) Chicago - less tax LA - more tax (heard that lot from many people, but more tax in what ways)
Please help me choose the best option from here, Should I negotiate PTO, or Health insurance start date (or both) or work on initial salary increase? or it doesn't look good.. Also, if I go with LA position, please give some tips for moving from Chicago to LA.Thanks a lot in advance.

Landlord fined me for not a very good reason-Help me to fight back
Added on : Sunday July 29th 2012 10:00:49 AM
First of all, this is a small amount ($50). It may not worth the precious time of FW community and also my time. But one part of me says fight back the fine, and the other part of me says pay the fine and live peacefully. I would very much appreciate advice and help.I live in a large apartment complex in the west Chicago suburbs. There is some balcony maintenance work going on in our building and the manager sent out couple of notices. The latest notice asked me remove items off the balcony for a day for power wash. I did removed the items for a day and put them back after power wash. But after couple of days, manager charged me a $50 fine for not removing items off the balcony. I talked to staff in the office and they showed me a different notice which I did not receive it. It is mentioned in that notice that items should be removed for some duration (do not remember exact days). They usually leave the notices in front of the door in a hall way and I may have failed to pick it up. They refused to remove that fine from my account. I sent a certified letter asking the manager to send me the evidence to prove their claim. Manger called me after receiving the letter and refused to waive the fine.I am thinking of filing a law suit in small claims court. The point I want to make is: sending notice does not mean that I received it. Do I have any chance to win?. At least, I want them to work hard to get that $50 from me. I appreciate your help in this matter.Sorry for my poor English grammar. I may have to hire a lawyer if I want to file a law suit in small claims court because of my poor English.

We are visiting my son in Busan, South Korea. During our trip we all took a side trip to Osaka, Japan. My son was feeling a little under the weather when we left, and he's been pretty much in bed since we arrived (we're going back to Busan tomorrow.) I hadn't traveled any further than Canada in years, and am not familiar with quarantine, but I've been told that they do a temperature scan when you walk by and if you look really sick they pull you aside to be examined for "exotic diseases." Well, he had a high fever for two days, and severe muscle aches, but now it's just a cough...I think he can get through.My greater concern is that one of us will get sick before we return home (the following day) and that we will not be allowed to board for our flight home...or get quarantined in Chicago, which would be our first American stop...So far the rest of us are healthy...maybe I'm just a bundle of nerves, but I'm worried.Can anyone reassure me?

PFGBest Collapses Amid Fraud Allegations
Added on : Wednesday July 11th 2012 02:01:02 PM
You couldn't flip through any financial magazine in recent years without seeing several of these guys full page ads..
It seems though, that declining commissions revenue combined with next to zero interest rate (FCMs made money off of interest paid on their customers funds) forced the CEO to get "creative" - or as CFTC Chairman put it: "Money was essentially stolen by PFGBest".
The situation appears to be more like "mini Madoff" than MF Global, although customers who somehow survived MF Global experience.."had personal assurances..that they were not like MF Global," according to Lauren Nelson, director of communications for Attain Capital, an IB specializing in managed futures in Chicago.
PFGBest CEO, Wasendorf attempted suicide but failed - he's now in coma.
Not all details are known at this point as the investigation is still going on, however additional details can be found in THIS Reuters report.

Trump Tower Chicago, Should I buy?
Added on : Tuesday July 03rd 2012 11:00:51 AM
Hello FW community.

I live just down the street from the Trump tower in Chicago and have always been awed by it.
I was planning to buy a Condo for about an year now and have been looking at short sales in my building.
There is a good chance that I would be able to buy something in my unit sometime this year for around 180K 1 bedroom with parking.
However I have been dreaming of living in the trump tower and finally gave in and attended an open house.
There is an unending list of amazing things which I could never get in my existing building, such as 10 foot ceiling, gas cooktop, larger bathroom & kitchen, powder room, word-class amenities and amazing views to name a few.
Things I can do in my existing building- hardwood floors, upgrade the small kitchen & 1 bathroom, get rid of the popcorn ceiling etc. I still get decent views and amenities. Location is pretty much the same.
If I go all out the most I would end up spending for a condo in my building is 200K(including upgrades), Trump Tower I am looking at 500K!!
As far as affordability goes, yes I can afford it, however I can't afford to lose money on it.
Here are my questions-
I am planning to buy a condo, but the trump tower also has condo-hotels and based on what I have read, the latter is not a great idea. How does that affect the prospects of buying a regular condo?
There are 2 units listed in the same price range and there has been 1 sale of a similar unit this year. Most of the past transactions have been cash. I can only do a mortgage. Why aren't there too many mortgage sales? I know a couple of lenders who lend in that building, and even if it's expensive/impossible to get financing I would know that before I buy the house so no big deal.
Any thoughts on the future of luxury homes in Chicago, especially Trump?
Anybody who actually lives in Trump Chicago, what's your experience?
And finally, should I buy in Trump?

I tried to put in as much detail as possible, but please feel free to ask questions to further evaluate.

Last night my mother got stuck at Midway Airport. For 4 hours the lighting system on the runway went down, reason still TBD but articles say it was an airport problem.http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2012/06/29/after-power-outage-midway...Regardless after three hours of sitting on the tarmac and finally exiting the aircraft, via an aluminum construction ladder because there were not enough gates and they didn't to pay the FAA fee for keeping passengers on a plane to long Southwest finally got my mom off the plane. Less than fun experience but here is where the finance part comes in.Southwest says the issue is Midways and not theirs and therefore offered no type of accommodations or food vouchers. People were left to fend for their own, a few cots were rolled out but in general the restaurants shut down at normal time, and the bathrooms had no additional cleanings and got extremely gross quickly. Mother ended up paying for a hotel room despite the issue, minor cost occurrence not a huge deal. However when she went to try to get a ticket home southwest said because the issue was Midway's they were not in any way responsible for getting her home. The last leg of her round trip ticket was basically gone and she had to buy a new one way ticket from Midway to NH as if she had never booked a ticket in the first place. The issue now becomes there are 85 flights worth of people now trying to mass exodus Midway and she payed 3X the cost of her round trip ticket for the last leg, that in her mind she already payed for and never flew.Now my mother is a professional and travels frequently so I believe what she is saying and don't think she was scammed. My question is how is this legal/ethical on Southwests part and how do we go about recouping the costs for what looks like a lack of maintenance and upkeep on Midways part, how does it become a free pass for Midway and the airlines. I understand that if it was an airport issue the airlines should not be out the buck but you would think they would get the passengers home, tally up the bill and pass it on to Midway? Any thoughts? Mother is smart and documenting everything and keeping all her receipts.Tyler
