Late Fall 2010

Reuters Estimates say that nearly three thousand people nationwide, and fifteen thousand people worldwide have died of the H1N1 virus or Swine flu and nearly eighty thousand cases have been confirmed in hospitals and clinics across the United States and the world, the World Heath Organization reported. The influenza pandemic of 2010, while not nearly as prolific as the one that raged in 1918 still has citizens around the world in a near state of panic.

New York Post (Headlines October 31st) Beware! Children Carry Germs! Halloween Canceled!

New York Times (Headlines November 3rd) Swine flu claims latest victim Vice President surrounded by family and friends at the end.

Boston Globe (Headlines November 28th) Swine Flu Vaccinations Coming!

Boston Herald (Headlines December 6th) Shots in Short Supply Lines Long!

National Enquirer (Headlines December 7th) The Dead Walk!

There would be no more headlines.

It started in a lab at the CDC (Center for Disease Control), virologists were so relieved to finally have an effective vaccination against the virulent swine flu. Pressure to come up with something had come from the highest office in the land. In an attempt at speed the virologists had made two mistakes, first they used a live virus and second they didnt properly test for side effects. Within days hundreds of thousands of vaccinations shipped across the US and the world. People lined up for the shots, like they were waiting in line for concert tickets. Fights broke out in drugstores as fearful throngs tried their best to get one of the limited shots. Within days the CDC knew something was wrong. Between 4 and 7 hours of receiving the shot roughly 95% succumbed to the active H1N1 virus in the vaccination. More unfortunate than the death of the infected was the added side effect of reanimation, it would be a decade before scientists were able to ascertain how that happened. The panic that followed couldnt be measured. Loved ones did what loved ones always do, they tried to comfort, their kids or their spouses or their siblings, but what came back was not human not even remotely. Those people that survived their first encounter with these monstrosities usually did not come through unscathed, if bitten they had fewer than 6 hours of humanity left, the clock was ticking. During the first few hysteria ridden days of The Coming as it has become known, many thought the virus was airborne, luckily that was not the case or nobody would have survived. It was a dark time in human history. One from which we may never be able to pull ourselves out of the ashes from.

Comcast Changed Billing account number (system?) WAY overcharged

Views: 83 Replies: 0 Just a heads up to everyone. I just moved and signed up with comcast for a 1 year cheap internet/basic TV plan, they threw in HBO. They set my bill for 59.99+3.54 Tax each month. Well they "changed" billing systems and the first bill said they recently changed the way they billed and the account numbers. They billed me 314.05 for a slightly prorated 2 months. I called to ask why they were dramatically over-charging me and after 23 minutes on hold they said "I must have been one of the feweffected by the change and was charged the full fair for each item.

I wonder how many people will be overbilled for this. I also wonder if this "accident" was simply another one of Comcasts horrible customer service or if it was intentional.

Take a look at your bill.

New here, but I just found out that you can stack two coupons at TigerDirect.

Tiger is selling an OCZ ARC 240GB + McAfee Bundle for $124.99 - $70 MIR= $54.99. Kinda sucks that you need to input a credit card number for the McAfee auto-renewal, but I've read that you can cancel it after you get your rebate card.

$15 off $100 coupon- just need to input your email address

$25 off $100 by paying with PayPal

Anyway, that brings the total down to $124.99 - $70 MIR - $15 coupon - $25 discount with Payal = $14.99. The upfront purchase cost of this bundle is $84.99 with the two coupons applied.

You have to jump through a few hoops to get that price, but it simply cannot be beaten. I've already purchased one and wanted to let you guys know about it as well.

e-Cigarette from China Infected Mans Computer with Malware
Anthony Cutherbertson, IBTimesNovember 24, 2014

Smoking will not only damage yourhealthbut also your computer, ase-cigarettesmanufactured in China are reportedly being used to spread malicious software through the USB connection used to charge the device.A recent post to social news site Reddit detailed how the computer of an executive at a large corporation had been infected with malware from an undetermined source. Further investigation apparently revealed that it had stemmed from a $5e-cigarettebought from the online auction site eBay.The executives system was patched up to date, hadantivirusand anti-malware protection, Reddit userJrockillasaid. Web logs were scoured and all attempts made to identify the source of theinfectionbut to no avail.Finally after all traditional means ofinfectionwere covered, IT started looking into other possibilities. They finally asked the executive: Have there been any changes in your life recently? The executive answered: Well yes, I quit smoking two weeks ago and switched toe-cigarettes. And that was theanswerthey were looking for.Thee-cigarettewas found to have malware hard-coded into the charger, which phonedhome and infected the system whenpluggedinto the computers USB port.Pierluigi Paganini, chief information security officer at ID management firm Bit4Id, said thatelectronic cigaretteswere just the latest vector to serve the spread of malicious software.Hackers are able to exploit any electronic device to serve malware to a poorly protected network, Paganini said in ablog post.Despite the [fact the] idea could appear hilarious, manyelectronic cigarettescan be charged over USB using a special cable or by inserting one end of the cigarette directly into a USB port.Paganini cites otherexamplesof apparently harmless USB devices being used as a hacking tool in the past, including acharger for Apple iOS deviceslike iPhones and iPads.

The MSI A88XM Gaming Micro ATX Motherboard is $59.99 after a $30 mail-in rebate. This is by far the lowest price on this motherboard and a great price for an A88X chipset board that has quite a few unique features.

Shipping is free with either Newegg Super Eggsaver shipping or 2-day for those with a Shoprunner account.

The lowest I've seen is for $85 after using a Masterpass payment promo (no longer valid) and it is typically ~$100.

You've blown your budget on a new smartphone, tablet or laptop but now you need to buy content to run on it.No cash? No worries.Whether you're into media like TV shows, music, movies or e-books or software, such as a Microsoft Office alternatives, there's no shortage of places to get good and legal stuff,without having to spend a dime.Some of the following resources might be old news to you. But some gems you weren't aware of might just keep you entertained or productive without having to put your hand in your pocket. Free e-booksThere are a couple of ways you can fill up onfree books.For new releases, you can borrow e-books (and audiobooks) from many local libraries.Not only does this mean you don't have to physically get to a library, but you'll never face late fees again.All you need is your library card and the freeOverDriveapp installed on your favorite phone or tablet. First, download and install the app (app.overdrive.com) and once installed, you'll be prompted to create an Adobe ID, if you don't already have one, and authorize it to work withOverDrive. Now you can borrow e-books and audiobooks wirelessly even currentNew York Timesbestsellers.For classic books, including those in the public domain (read: free), there are awesome sites like Project Gutenberg(gutenberg.org), which offers more than 46,000 free e-books.Popular picks includePride and Prejudice,Dracula,The Adventures of Sherlock HolmesorShakespeare's timeless works.Other great resources include Google Books, Archive.org, The Online Books Page and the many free e-books offered by stores like Kindleand Kobo. Free music, music videosRather than pay to download songs by track, or subscribe to music streaming services that could cost up to $10/month, the freeTuneInRadio(tunein.com)app and website gives you access to more than 100,000 radio stations from around the world from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe and all searchable by genre, country orpopularity.If you're in the mood for a particular artist or song, simply do a search to hear what's playing at that exact moment.Want local radio? No worries. Tap to see all the AM and FM stations in your area and tune in at home or on the go (even with album artwork). Alternatively, you can listen to Internet-only stations, such as the awesome 1.FM.If you prefer to have curated playlists, be sure to visitSongza(songza.com)in your Web browser or download the free app.Here's another option: Use free software like Free YouTube Downloader or YTD Video Downloader both of which are available inC|NetDownload.com'sTop 10 list(download.com) and you can not only download music videos to watch online but also convert them into MP3sfor your phone or tablet, too.Some Web browsers will also let you download YouTube videos to watch offline or copy over to a mobile device. Free softwareBoth Microsoft and Google offer free productivity programs namely, Microsoft Office Online and Google Drive but they require an Internet connection to function fully.However, Apache'sOpenOffice(openoffice.org)is a downloadable, offline suite of productivity tools for word processing, creating spreadsheets and presentations and more.OpenOfficeis available in multiple languages and runs on many operating systems, and you can install it on as many computers as you like. The software suite supports a wide range of file types created by other programs (including Microsoft Office's .doc, .xlsand .ppt).Also available for Windows, Mac and Linux isLibreOffice, another feature-rich and free software suite with a word processor, presentation maker, spreadsheet creator and other programs. Windows and Linux users can also downloadSoftMakerOffice 2008, an older but free version of a more recent commercial product.If you're on a smartphone or tablet, Kingsoft Office(kingsoftstore.com)is a free Microsoft Office alternative that lets you create, view and edit documents imported from Word, Excel, PowerPoint and others, including support for PDF files. All of your work can be stored locally on the smartphone or tablet or accessed from "cloud" services like Dropbox, Google Drive, Box and others. It's also possible to collaborate and share files with other users.There are many good, free photo-editing tools, but Gimp(gimp.org)might be the most robust, thanks to its powerful editing features, digital retouching, multiple file support and customizable interface options. The free download works with Windows, Mac, Linux and other operating systems. Free TV shows, moviesThere are a few good ways to watch television shows online without having to pay to download them. Your options might be a bit limited, but hey, free is free.For one, all the major TV networks let you watch live or prerecorded shows on their respective websites. For example, go to ABC and you'll see its top shows cycle from right to left and a large tab that says "Watch the latest episode" or "Watch Now" whether it'sModern Family,How to Get Away With Murder,Grey's Anatomy,Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.orGeneral Hospital.And while you need to pay for Hulu Plus, there's no shortage of content to watch on the main Hulu site(hulu.com). Also check outSideReel(sidereel.com).There are hundreds of free shows often pilots or the first episode of a new season you can download from iTunes.Along with an entire section devoted to free films, YouTube(youtube.com)has many episodes of mostly older TV shows, but can be a great way to relax on a lazy Sunday afternoonmaybe by connecting your computer to your big-screen television with an HDMI cable (which you can buy at your local dollar store) or wirelessly through a Smart TV, Chromecast or other set-top solution.Movie lovers can also check out Sony's Crackle,Yidio,Vimeo'sFilms Channel,SnagFilmsandPopcornFlix. Free podcasts, radio showsFinally, you likely knowaudio-based podcasts can be a great way to keep you entertained on a long commute, whether you're interested in downloadingor streaminga comedy routine, news report, political rant, tech advice, religious sermon or the latest music remix from a popular club DJ.When you hear a podcast you like say, within iTunes easily subscribe with the simple click or tap; every time there's a new show it automatically downloads.There are video podcasts, too, another form of free entertainment at home or on the go.Same goes for classic radio dramas.Popularized in the '40s before television took off, "old time radio" (OTR) shows, as they're referred to today, are enjoying a 21st century rebirth thanks to the Internet and MP3 files.Recommended shows include the creepyInner Sanctum and Price of Fearwith Vincent Price" mysteries; nail-biting adventures from Suspense and Escape; the antics of Jack Benny and Abbott and Costello; and sci-fi classics likeJourney Into SpaceandX Minus One(featuring many Ray Bradbury yarns).Filling up your smartphone, tablet or computer with these timeless tales is as easy as subscribing to one of the many dozen OTR podcasts (some with daily updates) or by bookmarking websites such as Archive.org, Relic Radio and OTRCat.com, each with thousands of free downloadable episodes.

Views: 39 Replies: 0 In short, Sallie Mae ruined my credit with a few inaccurate reports of 60 days late. Sallie Mae customer service has been telling me that they will fix the problem since September. I sent letters to the credit bureaus to dispute this twice. No results, errors still on reports. I am thinking about suing either Sallie Mae and/or the credit bureaus. I would appreciate any help with this. (No collection agency is involved.)

Detailed version is below, but probably not necessary.

The Problem: I pay Sallie Mae one monthly lump-sum payment that covers the monthly payment for all of the loans I have with them. This worked just fine for a couple years. Then a few months ago, a few of my Sallie Mae loans showed up on my credit report as being 30-60 days late, which they were not. Payments were made on time. Sallie Mae basically goofed and failed to update their system properly to reflect my payment.

What My Credit Report Says: Listed under, "Potentially Negative Accounts," my credit report inaccurately states that I was 60 and 30 days late on 4 Sallie Mae accounts in June and July. For August through the present, it reports a status of, "OK." The accounts currently say, "Paid as Agreed."

When I Contacted Sallie Mae: I contacted Sallie Mae several times over the phone. The majority of customer service personnel I've spoken with, supervisors included, do not understand credit reports. They say that since my credit report is currently showing, "paid as agreed," that there's no problem. So, I call back until I get someone who understands that 30-60 days late in June and July is a problem, and ask for help getting that inaccurate statement removed from my credit report. A couple times now (in September and again in October), Sallie Mae's customer service promised that my credit report would be corrected. They agreed that I have not missed any payments this year, and that I have paid the full amount due every single month. Sallie Mae's customer service says that they are not allowed to send me a letter confirming my payment.

Lack of Evidence Online and on Monthly Statement: Sallie Mae did not send me a monthly statement and no longer has statements available on their website (at all, for any month). On their website, they only provide an amount due and a payment history. The payment history they provide is a nightmare and difficult to make sense of. (Here's why: I pay $500 a month. On the payment history, you never see the figure, $500. Sallie Mae divides that number into smaller payments for each of my loans they service. You never see those numbers (payments toward each loan) either, because those smaller numbers are divided again into other categories like, amount toward principle, amount toward interest, etc. What actually appears on Sallie Mae's "Payment History" page is a never ending list of, "$8 to principle, $10 to principle, blah blah to principle, $4 to interest, $25 to interest, etc. You cannot tell which amounts apply to what loan or much of anything from that mess.) Then the credit bureaus all block out the last 2 digits of each student loan identification number, so it's impossible to tell which loan they are referring to. (I've just described the problem as, "I've never been late on any loan payment from Sallie Mae, please correct the entries that claim I was late in June and July of 2014."

Evidence I Have: I have copies of cancelled checks that show Sallie Mae did indeed receive $500 from me every single month this year. I've also kept copies of the last 2 letters I sent to the credit bureaus to dispute those entries.

Result: Despite all of this, my credit report has not been corrected. I am in the process of sending Sallie Mae a letter, but I am nowhere near sure that this will solve the problem.

(I think that I've finally read all the many threads about disputes with credit bureaus on here. While they were helpful, I did not see the answer to this particular issue. If I missed something, feel free to post a link.)

Here's the deal. Add the set to your cart and then apply for the Chase Amazon Card. I was offered a $70 credit when applying (YMMV). Before checkout, add this code:TYS25ARCfor 25% off up to $200 in Toys and Games.

In the end, I got the Disney Infinity Set for FREE, plus a $41 Amazon credit!

Current Chase cardholders can get the 25%, which will get it a few dollars shy of the Black Friday Price.

CAVEAT: Looks like it's a hard inquiry on that credit pull.

Views: 102 Replies: 4 So I'm needing another car for a friend who is coming from overseas for a few years. My cars get lots of miles so I decided to buy him a new car (business expense).

Thing is I think the deal being offered by a dealer is too good to be true. This is for a popular but not extremely popular car. 2014 model and its the last one left at this dealership.

I sent them an email asking for a quote. From there I negotiated a bit.

MSRP: $19,500
Invoice $18,300
My price: $12,900.

I have a signed letter by the manager saying this is the price I will get when I drive down there.. I'm like 6 hours away.

How is this possible? I understand holdbacks but aren't they a max of like 3%?

Currently $65.53 on Amazon, and they never priced matched my requests.

I bought this as a beginner smoker, as I am new to this method of cooking, and I love kitchen gadgets and machines.

Mine shipped a few days after purchase...and arrived about a week later. So I doubt free shipping would make it prior to Thanksgiving, but ok if giving as a gift for Christmas or otherwise.

I have not not tried it yet, but am ready with wood chips of various types in small bags I found at Home Depot in the grilling department.

Medical billing dispute - lab ran tests a year later that were not needed

g: 0 Posted By: seekay44
Views: 81 Replies: 0 Have had a high-deductible plan w/ an HSA for the last few years.
Last year I had some sort of an allergic reaction to something, which showed up as a red rash on my forearms. Went to my family practice (Scripps Clinic), saw Dr. J who ordered a panel of allergy tests but also gave me a steroid and asked me to take Bendryl. If the rash didn't go away in a day or two, I was to go to the lab and get those tests done. The rash went away, and so I didn't go down to the lab.

Fast forward to this Oct and I went back to the same practice and this time saw Dr. N who ordered a regular blood panel as part of the annual physical.

I then got a bunch of EOBs from the insurance company, and all made sense except for one for $930+. After a couple of weeks of digging around and calling the doctor's office, I was finally told that it was the allergy lab tests that were never done in 2013. It seems it was my responsibility to get the "test cancelled" as once the doctor orders it, she can not take it back.

I'm not trying to shy away from paying my bills but it seems wrong that:
[a] its my responsibility and not the doctor's to get that cancelled
the lab didn't even bother to check if those tests were needed after more than a year and just automatically went ahead and did the tests. This is the one I find really weird...

I'm going to try and negotiate with them and see if I can get the bill reduced. From past experience, doctor's offices don't budge once I've received an EOB as they claim its the "negotiated" rate. What else should I try? Would prefer it doesn't end up in collections as that would impact my credit report and I'm looking to buy a house in the next year or two.

Rent current home out, buy a new home or rent a new home?
Added on : Wednesday November 19th 2014 11:00:08 AM
g: 0 Posted By: awebs
Views: 135 Replies: 3 I found a few threads on this, but none of them seemed to be in as complicated a situation as we are in so I'm starting a new one. (Sorry if it seems redundant.)

In 2006, we bought a very small condo for 356k (we owe about 320K on it now). Last month, a comparable unit in our complex sold for 253K so that is probably close to what our unit is worth. In other words, we are still very under water.Since we bought the home, we have had a child and are planning to have another soon so we are outgrowing the amount of space we have.The best solution we can come up with is to rent our place out and try to buy a new place. The mortgage is one of those crazy housing bubble specials so right now, the payment is very low due to the low interest rate. Our first mortgage is $635, the second is $110, $282 for HOA and about $210 for property taxes for a total of $1237. We think we can get somewhere between $1400 and $1550 per month in rent for it. So we would make a bit of profit.

We have no child care costs since we work opposing schedules. We are working on paying off all of our non-mortgage debt (when we are done, we will have no car loans and no credit card debt), and we will then move on to saving up a down payment for a new place. We are willing to move into a rental ourselves and rent our place out in order to establish rental history, if we need to.

The kind of house we are looking for in today's market is about 400K.

This is a common enough situation, now on to the complexities:

1-My father in law is a coborrower on the loan. We have always had enough income to pay the loan and we have good credit, but we were very young and didn't have a long enough employment history to qualify by ourselves back in 2006. He has never paid anything toward the loan. Short sale has never seemed like an option because we don't want to hurt my husband's parents. I wasn't sure if this situation would affect our ability to qualify for a mortgage on another home.

2- Our combined income is $91,000 per year. Part of that is from tips which my husband's employer does withhold taxes from and report to the IRS. I assume this would be okay since it's all documented, but wasn't sure since this is the only time I've ever heard of someone actually paying taxes on tips? If you don't count the tips, our income falls to $83,000. I've crunched the numbers and either way, I don't think a bank would say we could afford 2 mortgages without counting our rental income, unless I calculated incorrectly.

3- Since our current loan is whacky and could go up or down with the interest rate, would this count against us?

4- We don't qualify for any HARP goodies. Our loan is not backed by Fannie or Freddie and the mortgage servicer has rejected our request for modification since we can afford to pay and have never missed a payment.

I know lenders are strict now about rental income not counting. Is there any hope for us?

How much should we plan to save for a down payment?

How long would we have to rent our place out in order to convince them to count the rental income?

How much cash reserve (other than the down payment) would we have to have?

I'm not sure how long it will take for us to qualify or if the interest rates or home prices will still even be affordable by then...

Are there any other options we should consider?

We also thought about just renting a bigger place for ourselves, but the rental market in our area is really hot so rent would be higher than the mortgage payment would be which just kind of hurts...

Thanks in advance for your help!

Views: 109 Replies: 3 Hello, I have been in contact with my refinance officer and was pretty close to applying for a cash-out refinancing on my mortgage, but at the same time a leak broke out in my ceiling. My insurance will cover the leak and have been in contact with a roofer to replace my flat top roof. My question is should I continue withthe refinancing application and have my house appraised with a hole in my kitchen ceiling? I will most likely be signing a contract for my roof in the next few days, however they will not be able to start up for another 3 weeks (I guess with the weather they are very very busy!). I can not get my kitchen walls replaced until my roof is completed, therefore will have to wait over a month or two to have everything completed. My main reason to rush is also because I had a hard check applied on my credit and afraid if I wait over a month they will have to do another one with a lower score. I am at 746 and at the border of one of the top tiers. I'm afraid if I go below 740 I may not be able to take out as much cash. If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much in advance.

Is this a prudent move to shelter eventual Life Insurance pay-out?
Added on : Tuesday November 18th 2014 05:00:08 AM
g: 0 Posted By: rblakenyc
Views: 101 Replies: 2 Background:
- My Dad is elderly, in decline and realistically has less than another year to live. He has long term care insurance and assets to cover his high-care assisted living situation. (My mom is deceased.)
- Besides myself and my siblings, my Dad's only other immediate relative is his sister (our aunt) whois also elderly and may or may not live more than a few more years. She is financially stable with a pension, her own home and what she describes as sufficient savings to do what she wants (all on a very modest scale). We get along well with her and want the best for her - and willend up caring for her if that becomes necessary. On the flip side, I expect we will inherit her estate when she passes.

The question:
- My Dad has listed my aunt as the beneficiary on several life insurance policies (totaling up to about $250k)for most of his life as his way of looking out for his "little sister".
-At this point, she is financially stable, doesnt seem to need or want the money and we will most likely inherit it from her when the time comes.
- I am wondering however, if she suffered an illness or otherwise required expensive care, would we be better off "sheltering" this insurance payout by changing the benificiary (rather than risking her burning through it before qualifying for medicare/medicaid)? We would only do so with full knowledge and agreement from them -both will want to do the prudent thing and us kids are committed to doing the right thing for both of them in any case.

Is this a prudent thing to consider?

In a serious bind with a botched used car purchase!!

g: 0 Posted By: leftandwest
Views: 15 Replies: 1 For everyone's convenience I'm going to try to make this as concise as possible. I had been making the payments on a relatives car for about a year, and during that time it was completely in my possession. Later on down the road, family member runs into serious financial trouble and needs to claim bankruptcy. To remove some of his debt and make the car fully mine, I got to bank, get a loan in my name, and send the check to my relative. After cashing the check his bankruptcy attorney tells him that if he pays of the car, or pays me back, it is considered being preferential to his creditors, and I could be held liable. For a few months we sat in a limbo period where I kept making my loan payments, and I thought he was making his. Turns out my relative is a scumbag, and wasn't making his payments, and now the car is supposed to be repossessed. So to get to my real question, what are my options? If I parted out the car that I paid for, what would be my liability? Must I surrender the car for repossession? What legal action can I take against someone claiming bankruptcy, and what could I expect if the court decides in my favor? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Relational database design teach-by-practical-diagrams-&-examples book for developers, programmers, systems analysts and project managers who are new to relational database and client/server technologies. Also for database developers, database designers and database administrators (DBA), who know some database design, and who wish to refresh & expand their RDBMS design technology horizons. Familiarity with at least one computer programming language, Windows file system & Excel is assumed. Since the book is career advancement oriented, it has a great number of 3NF database design examples with metadata explanations along with practical SQL queries (over 700 SELECT queries) and T-SQL scripts, plenty to learn indeed. Great emphasis is placed on explaining the FOREIGN KEY - PRIMARY KEY constraints among tables, the connections which make the collection of individual tables a database. The database diagrams and queries are based on historic and current SQL Server sample databases: pubs (PRIMARY KEYs 9, FOREIGN KEYs 10) , Northwind (PRIMARY KEYs 13, FOREIGN KEYs 13) and the latest AdventureWorks series. Among them: AdventureWorks, AdventureWorks2008, AdventureWorks2012 (PRIMARY KEYs 71, FOREIGN KEYs 90), & AdventureWorksDW2012 (PRIMARY KEYs 27, FOREIGN KEYs 44). The last one is a data warehouse database which is the basis for multi-dimensional OLAP cubes. The book teaches through vivid database diagrams and T-SQL queries how to think in terms of sets at a very high level, focusing on set-based operations instead of loops like in procedural programming languages. The best way to master relational database design & T-SQL programming is to type the query in your own SQL Server Management Studio Query Editor, test it, examine it, change it and study it. Wouldn't it be easier just to copy & paste it? It would, but the learning value would diminish rapidly. You need to feel relational database design and the SQL language in your DNA. SQL queries, "CREATE TABLEs" must "pour" out from your fingers into the keyboard. Why is knowing SQL queries by heart so important? After all everything can be found on the web so why not just copy & paste? Well not exactly. If you want to be an database designer expert, it has to be in your head not on the web. Second, when your supervisor is looking over your shoulder, "Chuck, can you create a new table for our electric pumps inventory?", you have to be able to type the CREATE TABLE query without documentation or SQL forum search and explain how it will work to your superior promptly. The book was designed to be readable in any environment, even on the beach laptop around or no laptop in sight at all. All queries are followed by results row count and /or full/partial results listing in tabular (grid) format. Screenshots are used when dealing with GUI tools such as SQL Server Management Studio. Mastery of the relational database design book likely to be sufficient for career advancement as a database designer and database developer.

"Programming Sucks!" -- The Aspiring Developer's Guide
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MNFRKPS/

Programming sucks.
At least that's what I thought. I started with a closed mind. As with any new experience, there's a lot to learn.
Concept after concept.
New struggle after struggle.
Hosing an app more than once.
HTTP protocol. Command-Line. HTML. CSS. Programming Languages. Frameworks.
Is your head ready to explode? Mine was.
I felt stuck. And more often than not, wanting to give in.
I started journaling all of my problems. It just felt like I'd never get there with too much to learn -- and starting from nothing. Nothing but books that were dry, dull, too challenging, or not challenging enough. I tried to look everywhere for some inspiration -- that something to spark that little voice inside the back of my head. I had a hard time finding it. Maybe you do too..? That's where this book comes in.
This book is largely dedicated to my own experiences. In fact, when writing it, it was as if I was writing to myself a year ago. Kicking the stupid out of me one page at a time.
"Programming Sucks!" -- The Aspiring Developer's Guide is one of both personal experiences, and advice. You'll dig deep into some basic programming concepts. This will lay out an incredible foundation, and prepare you with a solid mindset of how to proceed. It's also not geared toward any particular programming language (although it makes heavy usage of Ruby.)
You'll enjoy the occasional metaphoric and dry humor, while thinking outside the everyday-box and setting the stage to learn effectively as a developer.
The best way to describe this book is not one to learn how to code.
If anything, it's a book to, "Learn how..to learn how to code."
I'd like to dedicate this book to you. And the fact that you won't give up.

Thinking in HTML
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NN8H4FU

You will gain an intermediate knowledge of HTML after reading this book. Instead of wandering through loads of Theory, we will understand HTML practically so that we can semantically define the markup and structure of a webpage. We have used Notepad for the examples in this book. Alternatively, you can also use Notepad++ or any advanced editor. All you need to do is copy the code and paste it into Notepad. Upon execution, you will get the output as depicted in the screenshots. Screenshots are provided for each sample code.

Coding improves with practice. The examples in this book are compatible with almost every modern browser such as Mozilla Firefox, Opera or Google Chrome to name a few. Instead of using the verbatim code, you can modify the code and see the change in the output, thereby understanding the subtle nuances of HTML. By the end of the book, with practice, you can achieve better things as you get to grips with HTML.

Appeal Of Using Quicken/Mint? What Benefits? Best Practices?
Added on : Sunday November 16th 2014 06:00:03 PM
g: 0 Posted By: itconsult
Views: 26 Replies: 0 I've never used Quicken, Mint, or similar services. Quite frankly, I earn much more than I spend and I have frugal tendencies by nature so I don't really need a budget. However, it would be interesting for me to review my spending data. For one, I intermingle my personal and business reimbursible expenses across all of my credit cards to maximize rewards. If I used a Quicken-type program to import this data monthly, I'd like to be able to tag things as "business reimbursible" such that I am not counting those expenses against other categories like food that they might otherwise artificially inflate.

My main resistance to using one of these programs is privacy versus benefit. I am intrigued by the possibilities here but not yet convinced of the benefit. I do see a large privacy concern as now my data is being aggregated into yet one more company. I'm curious to hear what benefits people on this board realize from using one of these programs as well as what best practices exist that you've found.

Currently, I use an Excel spreadsheet to track my networth and it works well for me because I include in my networth a few items that are illiquid but have definitive values. I manually update them and it all just works. Would a Quicken do something like that?

Also, what things are you using these apps for? Tracking networth? Tracking investment portfolio return? Tracking expenses? Ensuring your business expenses were properly reimbursed? What actionable steps have you taken or could you conceivably take based on the information you're collecting and reviewing on your financial life?

Views: 153 Replies: 0 Conflict, Security and the Reshaping of Society: The Civilization of War
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BNMIZV0/

This book is an examination of the effect of contemporary wars (such as the 'War on Terror') on civil life at a global level.

Contemporary literature on war is mainly devoted to recent changes in the Theory and practice of warfare, particular those in which terrorists or insurgents are involved (for example, the 'revolution in military affairs', 'small wars', and so on). On the other hand, today's research on security is focused, among other themes, on the effects of the war on terrorism, and on civil liberties and social control. This volume connects these two fields of research, showing how 'war' and 'security' tend to exchange targets and forms of action as well as personnel (for instance, the spreading use of private contractors in wars and of military experts in the 'struggle for security') in modern society. This shows how, contrary to Clausewitz's belief war should be conceived of as a "continuation of politics by other means", the opposite statement is also true: that politics, insofar as it concerns security, can be defined as the 'continuation of war by other means'.

Believe in America: Mitt Romney's Plan for Jobs and Economic Growth
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005LEY5Q0/

Mitt Romney will rebuild the foundations of the American economy on the principles of free enterprise, hard work, and innovation. His plan emphasizes critical structural adjustments rather than short-term fixes. It seeks to reduce taxes, spending, regulation, and government programs. It seeks to increase trade, energy production, human capital, and labor flexibility. It relinquishes power to the states instead of claiming to have the solution to every problem.

Any American living through this economic crisis will immediately recognize the severity of the break that Mitt Romney proposes from our current course. He is calling for a fundamental change in Washington's view of how economic growth and prosperity are achieved, how jobs are created, and how government can support these endeavors. It is at once a deeply conservative return to policies that have served our nation well and a highly ambitious departure from the policies of our current leadership. In short, it is a plan to get America back to work.



Mein Kampf Comes to Washington DC
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OHXSG0C/

Mein Kampf Comes to Washington D.C. is a digest of Hitlers original 720 page tome. Each chapter in Mein Kampf Comes to Washington D.C. corresponds to a chapter in Mein Kampf. Some chapters are quite short, which is due to the strict exclusion of racist and anti-semantic material. A good deal of Hitlers autobiographical information was also excluded. The digest contains twenty-three chapters of political principles and strategies from Mein Kampf covering: Religion, Education, the Press, and so on. Mein Kampf sold over ten million copies, and transformed an established democracy into a dictatorship.

The principles in this political manifesto are now being used in Washington D.C. by extremists. For example, the strategy and ideology used by the TEA Party to shutdown the United States Government from October 1st to October 16th 2013 (at a cost to the American tax payer of 24 billion dollars) can be found in the first few chapters of Mein Kampf. Today they call themselves the TEA Party, yesterday they were the neocons, and who knows what they will label themselves tomorrow, but the applied ideology, strategy, and tactics of political extremists (all over the world) have a common center Mein Kampf.

Cool, fun weaving of journalism, humor and stream of consciousness to transport the reader on an entertaining, mind-expanding, psychedelic odyssey. Far out adventures of a UPI reporter, who followed the 60s over the edge; sought Enlightenment and joined 300 spiritual hippies to co-found a remarkable commune in Tennessee awarded the alternative Nobel Peace Prize, the Swedish Right Livelihood AwardFor caring, sharing and acting with and on behalf of those in need at home and abroad.

Imagine all the people living life in peace. That was us! We had it going.

For 13 years, folks lived life in peace, simply, with friends, sharing adventures, working together to help fix the world.

The Farm was a 24/7 peace demonstrationour own town, complete with solar-heated school, soy dairy, clinic, doctors, midwives, bakery, farming, motor pool, good karma cottage industries, radio station, and humanitarian outreach. I was a founder, builder, and resident member for 13 years. I worked as a farmer, carpenter, mason, flour miller, baker, vegan chef, gateman, editor and earthquake reconstruction volunteer in Guatemala, working with a team from The Farm and Mayans; building rural schools, clinics, houses and a clinic for Mother Teresa.

Originally, The Farm was a spiritual hippie cult built around charismatic teacher, Stephen Gaskin. High Times calls GaskinThe Gandhi of the American Counterculture.

Policies to Address Poverty in America
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00L1BN3U6/

One-in-seven adults and one-in-five children in the United States live in poverty. Individuals and families living in poverty not only lack basic, material necessities, but they are also disproportionally afflicted by many social and economic challenges. Some of these challenges include the increased possibility of an unstable home situation, inadequate education opportunities at all levels, and a high chance of crime and victimization.

Given this growing social, economic, and political concern, The Hamilton Project at Brookings asked academic experts to develop policy proposals confronting the various challenges of America's poorest citizens, and to introduce innovative approaches to addressing poverty. When combined, the scope and impact of these proposals has the potential to vastly improve the lives of the poor. The resulting 14 policy memos are included in The Hamilton Project's Policies to Address Poverty in America. The main areas of focus include promoting early childhood development, supporting disadvantaged youth, building worker skills, and improving safety net and work support.



Affordable Excellence: The Singapore Health System
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CDUS7WS

This is the story of the Singapore healthcare system: how it works, how it is financed, its history, where it is going, and what lessons it may hold for national health systems around the world. Singapore ranks sixth in the world in healthcare outcomes, yet spends proportionally less on healthcare than any other high-income country. This is the first book to set out a comprehensive system-level description of healthcare in Singapore, with a view to understanding what can be learned from its unique system design and development path.

The lessons from Singapore will be of interest to those currently planning the future of healthcare in emerging economies, as well as those engaged in the urgent debates on healthcare in the wealthier countries faced with serious long-term challenges in healthcare financing. Policymakers, legislators, public health officials responsible for healthcare systems planning, finance and operations, as well as those working on healthcare issues in universities and think tanks should understand how the Singapore system works to achieve affordable excellence.



3 Theories of Everything
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007N431DE

What is reality? What is the meaning of human life? Why do we suffer? In this simple volume, international lecturer Ellis Potter explores three major worldviews that propose radically different answers to these eternal questions. In clear and compelling language, Potter shows us that the three worldviews, and the unique hope that each offers to humanity, have profoundly different consequences for how we see everyday reality and the ultimate purpose of our lives. This book is a concise, reader friendly look at 3 basic ways of seeing reality from the East and the West. It wrestles with the problem of suffering and finds solutions in each of the 3 points of view. It is respectful of each worldview and engages the readers in some deep and hard-hitting questions about how they identify themselves and how they look at and understand the world. Reading, thinking about and perhaps discussing this book will bring the readers into a clearer focus of their own way of seeing reality. The book is based on lectures by the author and has a large section of questions and answers drawn from actual discussions.

New Car (2014 model) or Certified Pre-Owned Car (2012 model)?
Added on : Friday November 14th 2014 02:00:11 PM
g: 0 Posted By: AndroAsc
Views: 145 Replies: 2 I'm a car newbie here and looking to purchase my first car. Been driving rentals since I got my license using the $9.99 weekend special from Enterprise, but soon I need to get a car for my new job.

What's the most financially "cost effective" method of purchasing a car? Should I buy a new car or get a relatively new "off-lease" type of CPO cars? At the moment I am looking for cars that are no more than 3 years old.

I did some research on Toyota Corolla.

New Car
TrueCar.com only gave me data for the 2015 model, which has an invoice price of $18k. I'm guessing that I can get a new 2014 model for slightly less since I've read the end-of-year season is when dealers have the most incentive to move out the old inventory. Let's assume I bargain it down to $17k. New cars come with 3yr/36k miles standard warranty, 2yrs/24k miles free maintenance and 5yrs/60k miles powertrain warranty

Certified Pre-Owned
Currently around my area there are a few certified pre-owned 2012 model with just under 50k miles and they are going for $12k. Let's assume I bargain it down to $11k.. The CPO program provides 1yr/12k miles standard warranty from time of purchase and 7yrs/100k miles powertrain warranty from manfacturing date. That means I will get 1yr/12k standard warranty and 4yrs/50k miles of effective powertrain warranty.

I'm surprised that the premium between a new car and 2-3yr old CPO car is only $6k. I remember reading that new cars lose half their value (or something like that) when you drive it off the lot. However, I've also read that because of the bad economy during the 2009-present period, new car sales have dropped, which means that the supply of CPO/used cars have dropped and some articles claim that used car prices are "higher" than in the past.

I'm planning of purchasing the car outright, unless I can get a very low interest rate loan (has to be less than Ally savings interest rate), so the difference in financing between new vs CPO should be a non issue. Not sure about insurance costs between new vs CPO, but I'm guessing they will be similar.

Is the $6k premium worth it? Should I get a new car over the CPO car? Is the extra standard warranty and free maintenance worth $6k? What would FWFers do?

Walmart swallowed my $500, what to do
Added on : Friday November 14th 2014 02:00:08 AM
g: 0 Posted By: njdealguy
Views: 46 Replies: 1 During the course of some manufactured spending I was doing few months ago, with one of the $500 visa gift card I had, thought to purchase a money order which is a feature on WalMart's Money Center atm.

Upon going through the purchase and swiping the gift card, the machine spit out a message saying was unable to complete the purchase but gave a receipt with the purchase of $500 but without money order serial numbers that normally are on receipt. Then found out the gift card balance went to zero with the pending $500 transaction. Was told by customer service then that not to worry, the pending transaction will be automatically reversed in few days as receipt doesnt have mo serial numbers.

About a week later saw the transaction was never reversed and balance still 0. Went back to WM to show that and argue and after checking some paperwork, claimed that they never received the $500 in funds and cant do anything about it but that I can try to file a dispute with the card issuer for the charge.

Filed the dispute and after a couple months of going back and forth with all the evidence I gave, the bank is insisting that I submit a signed letter from the WalMart store declaring that I attempted to resolve the charge and they haven't received funds before they'll process the dispute any further. Went to WM and they gave a hard time when I asked for it saying they cant and it is already several months after the incident.

Now am seeing what else can do about it, does this seem like a case I can take to small claims court or any other suggestions?

Thanks!

2% Cashback on All (?) Amazon Purchases toward Student Loans with Gradible

g: 0 Posted By: Compeek
Views: 9 Replies: 0 Gradiblehas surveys and tasks to complete to earn credits toward student loans (government or private). I'm not terribly interested in that kind of thing, but I recently noticed that they have somewhat of a CashBack portal for a few sites, and the most interesting one is Amazon.
Gradible said: Get 2% back on all your Amazon purchases! Weve teamed up with the largest e-commerce platform to offer exciting deals for grads that use the site.

You can find it on their Shopping Center: http://gradible.com/shopping-center/(must be signed in). You have to click their affiliate link to get to Amazon and then forward your email receipt to them, so it's a little more cumbersome than the normal CashBack portals. You also have to redeem it toward student loans, which is the whole point of their service. Still, according to the description, it's 2% on all purchases, which is unheard of for CashBack at Amazon as far as I know.

Screenshot of Shopping Center page with details:http://www.uploady.com/#!/download/4wN9f~8TnOr/s765l5cZGXLsF4IW

Their sign up pages says they have paused sign ups due to high volume, so you have to request an invite. If you already happen to have an account, though, this might be worth checking out.

You need 100 LoanCreds ($10) to redeem them, but there are some fairly easy tasks that you could do to hit the minimum. I'm more interested in this for the CashBack longterm though.

Looking to make my first real estate purchase. I have had quite an interest in the real estate world for years now, and I read a ton about it on blogs, etc. Personally I think we are back in a bubble, and prices are going to come down within the next 5 years.

Wife doesn't want to sit in an apartment, so I am looking to buy a duplex, live in one side, rent out the other. Then in a few years, when home prices come down, buy a SFH and just rent out both sides of the duplex.

About me:
34, infant child, married. Stable job. Live in metro city in CA.
Managed a duplex for a family member for 8 years...so been a landlord, have the experience.
Monthly net income: $7,564
Monthly expenses (not including rent): $1500 (tracked over 9 months and averaged out)
Monthly rent: $870
Total savings: $93K
Total debt: $0
Estimated down payment: 20%
Credit Scores: High 700s, low 800s
Estimated monthly rental revenue: $900
Estimated mortgage pmt + property taxes: $1250-1500

So I am looking to buy a duplex in the range of $275K-$300K, putting 20% down, renting out one side, live in the other. I plan to be there for 3 years, and then hopefully the market has dropped a good amount and then will buy a house. We are pretty good at saving money. Currently we can save about $5K per month, and should be able to save even more with this purchase from the way I ran the numbers (current rent: $870. Mortgage payment $1500 - Rental revenue: $900 = $600 monthly housing cost which is $270 less than current situation.

Please give any feedback, insight, advice, opinions, thoughts. TIA

4.0 out of 5 stars epic poetry at its best December 27, 2007
By Sawyer
Format:Hardcover
This book is a meticulously translated tale of ancient India, with all of the greatest elements of a great story thrown in - treachery, redemption, adventure, murder, passionate love, family dynasties, greed, etc. If you can read above a sixth-grade level, this book will richly reward every moment you spend with it. Thrones are toppled and regained, love is experienced in all of its richness and despair, and the adventures the hero has to live through are guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. All kinds of demons and monsters are fought and conquered. Yes, the translation is old-fashioned, but so beautiful that only the most determinedly modern reader will balk at reading it. It is well worth the time and thought that it will require.



Vachanamrut
http://www.amazon.com/Vachanamrut-Bhagwan-Swaminarayan-ebook/dp/...

The Vachanamrut of Bhagwan Swaminarayan is the most sacred and foundational scripture of the Swaminarayan Sampraday. It contains the profound wisdom of the Vedas, Upanishads, Brahmasutras, Bhagvad Gita, Bhagvat Purana, Dharma shastras like Yagnavalkya Smruti, Vidurniti, and epics like the Ramayan and Mahabharat (Vachanamrut Gadhadha II-28). Bhagwan Swaminarayan says in Gadhadha II-28, "What is this discourse which I have delivered before you like? Well, I have delivered it having heard and having extracted the essence from the Vedas, the shastras, the Purans and all other words on this earth pertaining to liberation."

The Vachanamrut is the essence of ancient Indian wisdom as told by Bhagwan Swaminarayan and compiled by his five contemporary scholarly-sadhus who were known for their asceticism and scholarship in Sanskrit, besides their devotion to him. In fact every statement of the Master is packed with and based on His in-depth religious knowledge, spiritual insights and practical experience. It contains practical and philosophical answers to the sincere enquiries of all types of aspirants regarding life in this world and the life hereafter.

The Zen Experience
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0042X99TY/

(New American Library,1980)
The best history of Zen ever written.
Library Journal

Beginning with Indian Buddhism and Chinese Taoism it shows Zen as it was created by the personalities, perceptions, and actions of its masters over the centuries.

Gradual and sudden enlightenment, shock enlightenment, the koan, the migration of Zen to Japan. With anecdote and memorable quotation, this long-needed work restores Zen to its living, human form.

The truth of Zen has always resided in individual experience rather than in theoretical writings. To give the modern reader access to understanding of this truth, THE ZEN EXPERIENCE illumines Zen as it was created and shaped by the personalities, perceptions, and actions of its masters over the centuries.
Beginning with the twin roots of Zen in Indian Buddhism and Chinese Taoism, we follow it through its initial flowering in China under the First Patriarch Bodhidharma; its division into schools of gradual and sudden enlightenment under Shen-hsui and Shen-hui; the ushering in of its golden age by Hui-neng; the development of shock enlightenment by Ma-tsu; its poetic greatness in the person of Han-shan; the perfection of the use of the koan by Ta-hui; the migration of Zen to Japan and its extraordinary growth there under a succession of towering Japanese spiritual leaders.
Rich in historical background, vivid in revealing anecdote and memorable quotation, this long-needed work succeeds admirably in taking Zen from the library shelves and restoring its living, human form.

Buddha in Blue Jeans: An Extremely Short Zen Guide to Sitting Quietly and Being Buddha
http://www.amazon.com/Buddha-Blue-Jeans-Extremely-Sitting-ebook/...

Poet and Zen Priest Tai Sheridan's 'Buddha in Blue Jeans' is an extremely short, simple, and straight forward universal guide to the practice of sitting quietly and being yourself, which is the same as being Buddha. Sitting quietly can teach many ways to accept life, meet pain, age gracefully, and die without regret. The book encourages sitting quietly every day.

Topics include: Sit Quietly; Care For Your Body; Accept Your Feelings; Give Thoughts Room; Pain is Natural; Be Who You Are; Live Each Moment Well; Love Indiscriminately; Listen to Others; Be Surprised; Wonder; Live gratefully; Do No Harm; Benefit life; A Wish for The World. The book is for people of any faith, religion, race, nationality, gender, relationship status, capacity, or meditation background.



The Essence of Buddhism
http://www.amazon.com/The-Essence-Buddhism-David-Tuffley-ebook/d...

This book describes the basic principles of Buddhism. Much has been written about Buddhism and how to practice it. Readers will have no difficulty finding hundreds of books on the topic. This book simply focuses on the essence of Buddhism, as expressed in the Four Noble Truths and the Eight-fold Path.

Buddhism is not a religion as such; it does not propose an external God. It does not seek to replace a persons existing religious beliefs, only to supplement them. The Buddha, in all likelihood, would rather his followers describe themselves simply as Followers of The Way.



Radical Compassion: Shambhala Publications Authors on the Path of Boundless Love
http://www.amazon.com/Radical-Compassion-Shambhala-Publications-...

What is compassion? Much more than just being nice, compassion is about looking deeply at ourselves and others and recognizing the fundamental goodness we all share. Its about opening up to the vulnerable space inside every one of us and letting our barriers down. And its about daring to be present to ourselves and others with genuine love and kindness. Empowering personal awakening and social change, it might be the most radical and transformative thing we can do.

The cultivation of compassion has long been at the core of Naropa Universitys mission, since its origins in 1974and its students and faculty have been leaders in contemplative education with heart. In celebration of Naropas fortieth anniversary, Shambhala Publications is pleased to offer these teachings on the path of compassion from a collection of authors who have helped shape the schools unique and innovative identity, including:

Chogyam Trungpa on opening ourselves more and more to love the whole of humanity
Dzogchen Ponlop on how to cultivate altruism with the help of a spiritual mentor
Judith L. Lief on the common obstacles to compassion and how to overcome them
Gaylon Ferguson on awakening human-heartedness in oneself and society amidst everyday life
Diane Musho Hamilton on connecting to natural empathy and taking a compassionate approach to conflict resolution
Reginald A. Ray on spiritual practices for developing the enlightened mind and heart in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition
Ringu Tulku on the practices of bodhisattvas, those who devote themselves to the path of enlightenment for the sake of all beings
Pema Chodron on building up loving-kindness for oneself and others with help from traditional Buddhist slogans
Ken Wilber on what it really means to be a support person, with reflections from his own life
Karen Kissel Wegela on avoiding caregivers burnout and staying centered amidst our efforts to help those in need
and reflections on Naropa University and the meaning of radical compassion from longstanding faculty member Judith Simmer-Brown
How to start practicing Zen Buddhism alone?
How can one concentrate the mind on the present moment in a capitalistic society?

Another car accident
Added on : Monday November 10th 2014 12:00:08 PM
g: 0 Posted By: Table83
Views: 35 Replies: 1 Wife got into an accident on Saturday. She rear ended the other car. Don't have comprehensive insurance.

We drive an 06 Nissan quest. Damage is estimated at about $3,000-3500. I could repair the car myself for about $1,000. The state requires a report if the damage is more than $2500 for a car. My wife is trying to report the damage to our car is the $3,000 which would probably mean we get a salvage title.We paid about $8,000 for the car about a little more than a year ago.She hit a 2015 Audi A3. Only appears to be bumper damage.

We moved from Washington a few months ago to Oregon, but never moved insurance over. We registered the car on Friday in Oregon and got new plates. The adjuster is supposed to call us today or tomorrow. Is there anything I need to anticipate? We do pay our premiums, but Oregon coverage will be more. We did notify our agent who gave us a quote when we initially moved.

Where is the best place to get rid of a junk car? I just want to get rid of the car. It runs and drives fine. No leaks and airbags didn't go off. I'll post pics this evening. Any advice?

In the end I'm just glad everyone is OK, but this is kinda a mess.

How to snag first class seats through a paid upgrade?
Added on : Saturday November 08th 2014 02:00:06 PM
g: 0 Posted By: Matrim33
Views: 17 Replies: 0 Hi Guys. I have a flight tomorrow and there are 2 first class seats available. The person at the airline told me that within 24 hours I could check-in and pay for an upgrade to get those seats. I tried that and it did not work. Then I called them and they said the seats are still there but they won't release them until "later". Some suggestions were to try and re-checkin 6 hours before the flight and to talk to airline at the airport.

Any tips on being the first to grab these seats? I've never attempted this before. The ambiguity on when they get released is kills me. It's a long flight and the upgrade fee is pretty cheap, I'm guessing this will be a fight to get and I thought I had a few weeks until Black Friday.. Also, I know which seats are available so whoever gets them will get a glare from me lol

rent increase in bay area
Added on : Friday November 07th 2014 02:00:11 PM
g: 0 Posted By: saratang168
Views: 99 Replies: 4 I live in the bay area, CA. The yearly rent increase is less than 10% for the past few years. For this year, the rent increase is 21%. The property management said this is based on the rent estimate from the Zillow website.
Is this the right way to increase the rent that much? I am thinking this might be the property management proposal to raise this much instead of coming from the home owner originally. Will it be better to rent a home from the home owner directly instead of renting from a property management firm?

Most people know Billy Graham the preacher.
Many know Billy Graham the author.
In this remarkable book, Graham reveals a personal side that few have seen before.

For thirty years, Billy Graham and David Frost fascinated television audiences with their conversations about God, the Bible, and Grahams decades-long ministry. Frost asked the questions that thousands of viewers wanted to ask. Graham answered them with authenticity and grace.

Along the way, Graham provided insight into life as an evangelist, a Christian father and grandfather, and a public figure in a changing culture. Most of all, Grahams words show what it means to live out your beliefswhether you speak to millions of people around the world or simply want to live faithfully at home and work.

With a chronology of Grahams life, a preface from Frost, and a foreword from his grandson, Tullian Tchividjian, this weaving of stories, interviews, and reflections will inspire you to respond to Gods call with no reserve.

Sir David Frost, who died in 2013, was an English journalist, comedian, and television host. Known for his history-making interviews with top political figures, Frost is the author of several books, including his autobiography. His famous interviews with Richard Nixon formed the basis for the Oscar-nominated film Frost/Nixon.

Deducting mileage with two (or more) jobs
Added on : Thursday November 06th 2014 07:00:10 AM
g: 0 Posted By: SecondGunman
Views: 9 Replies: 1 I've searched here and online, and have read IRS pub 463, but didn't find an answer and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts. My apologies if the answer is here somewhere and I didn't see it.

Back in August I took a second, part-time, temporary job that was set to last for a few months. The job lasted about two months, as expected. I understand that I can deduct mileage between the two job sites if I work both jobs on the same day. Example, if I drive home-job B-job A-home, then I can deduct the mileage between job B and job A. My question is this: on a few occasions, I had to go back to job B for about an hour after finishing up at my primary job (A). Those days looked like this: home - B - A - B - home. I know that I can deduct the mileage from B to A the first time, but what about the mileage back to job B the second time?

Related question: There was a young lady working at job B with me these last two months who was on a paid internship from the local university. She also worked only part time and her position is still on-going, but is temporary and will last less than one year. I know that she has at least one other job that she works in the evenings, but I seem to recall her saying that she had two other jobs. If she has one other job, I'm sure she can also deduct mileage between the two sites. If she has two other jobs, is she able to deduct mileage between the three sites? That is, the miles between A and B and between B and C. As long as she doesn't try to deduct any leg of her drive that touches her house, she should be ok. Right??

Thanks for the help!!

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FVE7ZC6

4.6 out of 5 stars (8 customer reviews)

Experience the adventure of a lifetime!
Have you ever thought, There has got to be more to my Christian life?
Well, there is!

Normal Christianity has been redefined over the centuries. What began as a vibrant encounter with the Living Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit has often become formulaic and stale. For many Christians today, normal is mundane. Normal is average. Normal is boring. If this is you, then its time for you to get a new normal.
Author Michael Kaylor shares his personal testimony of redefining normal and stepping out on supernatural adventure that transformed His relationship with God forever.
God never intended you to live like everybody else. In this book, you will see that Gods vision of normal Christianity includes:

Prophetic dreams and visions
Impartations
Uncontainable joy
Divine appointments
Supernatural healing and miracles

Take the journey and discover the supernatural life God has destined you to live!



The Angels Are Talking
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D3RTRFQ/

In the spring of 2010, approaching the season of Lent, I went on a journey to find the one true God. I became convinced that God could hear me, and see me, and that He would give me a sign that He was there. I held the faith that if I humbled myself before Godseeking Him diligentlyHe would reveal Himself to me. It was amazing! For the first time in my life I heard the voice of the Lord, but nothing could have prepared me for what happened next. This book includes:

Messages from God for the world and His people
An introduction to my fleet of angels by name along with their assignments
In depth conversations with the angels Gabriel, Michael, the angel of death, the angel who stands at the gates of Hell and many more
Prayers to help you through difficult times
Formulas to use to unlock the power of Jesus Christ in your life

After reading this book you will come to realize that with God, you are stronger than you think you are. You are important to the body of Christ, and that fleet of angels all around you is proof that God has called you to be great. Answer the call.



Sacred Light Spirit Eagle: My Visionary Life and Near Death Experience
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009Y8S90W

A lifelong visionary

Cristael was seventeen when she saw a vision of the great eye of God, looking down at her. It was an experience of total love. After this experience she continued to have visions. Then when she was in her twenties her husband threatened to have her committed to the State Mental Hospital in Las Vegas, New Mexico because of her visions.
Cristael realized that no one around her could understand her seeing angels and having conversations with Divine intelligence. Silenced, she went to college and graduated, then got her divorce and began her career as a music teacher and a classroom teacher. She withdrew from life to teach and to raise her children alone.
As the years went on, her children left home and her parents died, and Cristael was left totally alone. She struggled with breakdowns and with years of bleak depression, winding up being totally dependent on her older son. And still her visions kept coming to her.

Near-Death Experience

Fifty years after her first visionary experience, Cristael had her Near-Death Experience. And after years of struggle and loneliness, she knew she could no longer allow herself to be silenced or censored. But how could she stand up to the risk of rejection by the people she cared about? And could she accept the fact that there were those who would ridicule her and seek to discredit her and her life of visions?

Are Cristael's visions and her near-death experience delusions? Or are they glimpses of glorious realms where the human soul really does live for all of eternity?



It Is Done!: The Final Step To Instant Manifestations
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00P80WYF6

The first time Richard Dotts learnt about the significance of the word Amen frequently used in prayers goosebumps welled up all over his body and everything clicked in place for him. Suddenly, everything he had learnt up to that point about manifestations made complete sense.

What if the word we commonly use to end our prayers today is not merely added as an afterthought, but meant to be a powerful manifestation tool in the first place? What if it is actually the most important part in any prayer? What was going through the minds of those ancient spiritual masters when they said words similar to amen? Does that word really hold the final step to fulfilling our desires?

In It Is Done!, bestselling author and spiritual explorer Richard Dotts explores the hidden significance behind these three simple words in the English language. Three words, when strung together and used in the right fashion, holds the keys to amazingly accurate and speedy manifestations.

In his usual candid, illuminating style which has made him a seven time Amazon bestselling author, Dotts devotes the first half of this book to explain his 10-year struggle with the Law of Attraction, and how he struggled to leave behind his habit of incessant worrying and fearful thoughts. I was constantly worried about things going wrong even when everything was going right. I was afraid that one day, I would run out of money and bad things would happen to me, writes Dotts candidly in one of the chapters.

Then Dotts quickly moves to show the reader how they can break free from the 4 major blocks that prevent manifestations from occurring in their own lives, and how these blocks are often so pervasive that we do not even realize they are there. Because these unseen blocks feel so familiar to us, we often do not recognize that they are standing between us and our greater good.



Classification and Statistical Manual of Extrasensory Experiences, 1st Edition: CSM-EE
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OX154D0

The Classification and Statistical Manual of Extrasensory Experiences (CSM-EE) is a classification of extrasensory experiences (i.e. telepathy, clairvoyance, mediumship, precognition, synchronistic events, etc.) with associated criteria designed to facilitate more reliable classification. CSM-EE assists in identifying like experiences that are similar in phenomenology, but otherwise widely differ in narrative due to culture, language, and religious/spiritual belief. Whereby, the CSM-EE can assist in accurate classification and is therefore a valuable resource for clinicians and students, and a valuable reference for researchers, dealing with extrasensory experiences in a wide diversity of context. The criteria and associated phenomenological features and specifiers serve in part as a textbook for students who require a well-structured method to understand and classify extrasensory experiences as well as for experienced professionals encountering these experiences for the first time.



The Accidental Psychic: How I Went from Skeptic to Psychic in Thirty Years in Just 500 Easy Steps
http://www.amazon.com/The-Accidental-Psychic-Skeptic-Thirty-eboo...

Deborah Raku is a psychic medium, a Reiki Master Teacher, and a Reconnective Healing Practitioner with an energy healing practice that involves the help of spirit guides and masters. Deborah is not a turban-wearing psychic with the ability to predict the future. Instead, she describes her gifts by saying that she simply has great insight into the present.
She was not born this way. Forty years ago she was a computer programmer with a skeptical interest in the metaphysical. That interest led to a decades-long meditation practice, a growing ability to listen to the intuitive voice, a premonition dream about a teacher she met a few days later, an energy blast in Sedona that set her on a healing path, a channeled journal that helped her navigate a painful heartbreak, a memory of a life between lives, and an illuminating journey to see John of God. Deborah is convinced from her experiences that these abilities are available to us all it is only a matter of beginning to listen.
This memoir is an account of how she slowly changed, as a result of tuning in to her intuition, into someone whose mission now is to help others connect with the deeper parts of themselves. This deeper connection is available to us all. In the book she gives practical examples of how meditation can help to open you up to this inner voice and how to recognize it. She gives advice on how to start a journal tapping into that voice and shows how it can help, comfort, and guide you when you most need it.
She also gives examples from her energy healing practice that demonstrate how this work can alter lives. Each session is unique and often unexpected. Other practicing healers will gain a great deal from her descriptions of beginning her practice, the necessity of letting go of desired outcome, and the certainty that all is working for the highest good.
In this personal story Deborah shares details of how she went from an agnostic and skeptical worldview to one full of spiritual connection, hope, and faith. It is a story of a heros journey and is Just a Great Read!

Just wanted to share there are ways to get free samples of new products (sometimes before they even hit shelves!) just for voicing your opinions back to the marketers. One site I like is Golden Ticket because all I have to do is download an App and answer a few questions on it every time I get a new product. Most of the products so far have been food but I'm a huge snacker. Also, I earn points for each product I review that lets me win other free stuff (like iPads, tickets to events, gift certificates.)

You need to signup on their site first before getting the App.

5.0 out of 5 stars (3 customer reviews)

Awarded with 'Seal of Excellence' by Author's Cave, this book is an interesting read, written in simple conversational style, with a background story set in India. The author meets his two friends during a training session in Mumbai and discusses the Big Bang Theory of the creation of the universe. According to this Theory approximately 13.7 billion year ago, an infinitesimal point in space exploded with such a gigantic force that it is still expanding. During its expansion, it caused the formation of billions of galaxies, numerous stars and our own solar system. This is the most popular scientific Theory of the creation of the universe, though it is not flawless. Therefore, a perpetual quest for alternative idea is on. A few ideas of the creation of the universe are based on the widespread conviction that there exists something unseen in empty space, that can convert into particles. Author of this book had presented one such idea in his first book Lines of Space, where a medium of space is imagined to be present in empty space, even in vacuum. The book "The Big Bang and Lines of Space' presents a comparison between the Big Bang Theory and Lines of Space concept through the conversation between three men. This book can be read as stand alone without reading the first part 'Lines of Space', and is easy to understand for even non-scientific persons.

This book is not restricted to the conventional belief of physics that space has no medium. It explores the possibility that empty space could also contain some kind of medium. This medium is considered as 'Lines of Space,' and it is conjectured that the matter could have been created from this medium, instead of creation by the Big Bang. During the course of proving this assertion, I had to deviate from the prevalent theories of physics. Therefore, the reader may find in this book such notions that are different from the recognized theories of physics. My intention is not to challenge any reputed Theory of science. I only wish to put forward my viewpoint.

An error occurs on a huge interplanetary spaceship called Triera, with four levels of robot-inhabited cities. The error leads to weird changes of all cities. The robot-manufacturing plant starts to produce new robots with malfunctions. All survived robots have to hide on a zero level, while other levels are already inhabited with zombie robots. All service stations in the cities got destroyed. Triera is at the self-vanishing point. But there is a way out: the only service station still exists on a zero level. But will the mechanic robot have a chance to reach the central panel and find out the reasons of this failure? Will he be able to reset the spaceships control system?

Using Credit Card to pay off Student Loans question
Added on : Wednesday October 29th 2014 11:00:06 AM
g: 0 Posted By: sliqx
Views: 89 Replies: 0 Hey guys,

I finished graduate school a little over a year ago and accumulated ~110k in student loans (including undergrad). My current interest rate is 7.9 (IT'S KILLING ME) and I'm currently going to have it refinanced. I went through SOFI and they gave me a 3.875 variable rate, which I hopefully will be able to pay off in 2 years. I have the loan down to 70k (I paid 40k in loans + interest this year), with an annual salary of 70k. My question is, is it possible to open a 0% transfer balance credit card and pay some of the loan off with it? I wanted to sign up for the Chase Slate Card (0% for 15 months) and max out the limit and pay it off over the next few months to help reduce the interest, however, my loan company does not accept credit card as a form of payment. I went in to Chase today and they said "sometimes people get access checks when they get approved for slate card, and some don't. There's really no way of figuring out who gets those checks." Is there any other suggestions to be able to use a 0% CC to pay off loans? Even the transfer balance at 3% is lower than my loan rate. Any help would be great, thanks!

It only lasts through the end of 2014, but that's still not a bad deal.Calls that are eligible for the free minute will display "first minute free" on the call screen.

Theres dozens hundreds, even of places to make a free blog or basic site online. You could likely name 3 quicker than you could finish reading this website. But where could you host a plain HTML and CSS based site for free? Think, real quick. You want to hand-code a site in HTML and CSS, perhaps throw up a few images as well, and get it online for free. Any ideas where to put it?
Likely, you drew a blank, as I would. If you dont want to use a CMS, and you just want to experiment with raw web code, youd better get a hosting account or have your own local server.
But now, theres another option: NeoCities. Designed as a 21st century reincarnation of GeoCities, NeoCities lets you make your own site for free from HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and images, providing its not larger altogether than 10Mb. And it just might spark a renaissance of creativity online, aside from CMSes that make your site look like everyone elses.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OOC2T0Y

As I've been interviewing hunters from across the nation, I continue to hear the same story. You wont believe how small the property is where Im taking trophy bucks. With the price of deer leasing continuing to escalate and fewer large tracts of land available, hunters are leasing small tracts of land or gaining permission to hunt these small properties.

In this book, you'll read about 14-different hunters who either have gained permission or leased properties as small as 6 acres to as much as 250 acres, and they consistently taken older-age-class bucks off these little lands.

When John and Jim Scott got pictures of a monstrous 10-point buck made from a surveillance camera at a suburban apartment complex, they immediately secured permission to hunt those 60 acres. John took a buck that scored in the 170s, and his twin brother, Jim, took a buck that scored over 160. Today they consistently take older-age-class bucks every year off this property and other small lands they hunt all over the nation. When we learned that big bucks live on small properties, Jim and I both changed the way we hunt, John Scott explains. Now, we focus all our time and energy hunting on and finding small properties.

Small tracts of land:
are easy to set-up trail cameras on, identify the bucks on these properties and make a hit list of bucks you want to take;
have little or no hunting pressure, and many hunters drive past them;
may home small patches of woods that are sanctuaries where big bucks concentrate during daylight hours;
may have the property around them intensively hunted, pushing big deer onto the small property; and
may be present but not visible on maps of public-hunting lands.

This book will teach you:
how to find and identify a small property that may hold trophy bucks;
how to get the landowners name of the small property;
how to use the boundary lines of adjacent properties to learn where big bucks are;
what to look for on small properties that cause that land to produce older-age-class bucks every year; and
how to find and take trophy bucks on small woodlots.

Thanks to some new types of maps available, often you can find the properties you want to hunt and then lease or obtain permission to hunt them without leaving home. If you're tired of paying high prices to join leases where you see few if any older-age-class bucks, if you want to have small family hunting spots for you and your family members, and if you want to become a trophy deer hunter who consistently bags big bucks every season, How to Hunt and Take Big Buck Deer on Small Properties is a must read.

Crappie: How to Catch Them Fall & Winter
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GDP0W2C/

Yes, you can catch and eat crappie during the fall and winter months. Often at many places, youll catch more and bigger crappie in the fall and winter than you do in the spring and summer. To learn where to find and how to catch cooler weather speckled sides, weve interviewed a wide variety of some of the nations best tournament crappie fishermen and guides. Many of the individuals youll read about in this book are tournament crappie pros, who travel the country to fish in crappie tournaments from New York to Florida and from Virginia to California. They use the latest crappie-finding equipment, the best poles, rods, reels, line and the most-productive baits. Each of the people youll read about in this book has the ability to be dropped-out of an airplane anywhere in the United States and catch crappie on any lake close to where they land that contains crappie. From over 50 years of crappie-fishing experience, Ive learned you get the best advice by interviewing a large number of people, who have different tactics and fish under various water, weather and fishing-pressure conditions.

In this book, you will learn:

how to spider-rig (slow-troll), which is one of the fastest-growing techniques for catching the most and biggest crappie in the shortest time.
how to catch crappie on crankbaits, and when and where using a crankbait is the most appropriate.
how to find areas of any lake that will hold large schools of crappie during the winter months places you can return to time and time again and expect crappie to be there.
why competing in crappie tournaments is one of the quickest ways to learn how to catch more and bigger crappie faster.
why and how to look for and catch the biggest crappie in a lake.

A bonus chapter in the back of the book with 64 videos has more tips about and with the people you read about in the book.

If youre tired of having the same stew, chili, steaks, hamburgers and pork chops most people eat during the fall and winter, if your taste buds are craving some of those sweet, white, light-textured crappie fillets, if you want to take a break from hunting and TV watching, and if you want to catch a mess of crappie this fall and winter, then this book is for you, whether youre a beginner or a seasoned crappie angler.

How To Fish For Trout - Stocked Trout (Stocked Trout Are For Stocking The Freezer)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007N922LG

Don't mistake stocked trout for real fish! Of course I say that with a smile on my face, but think about it. Stocked trout are raised in hatcheries, confined in holding pens and fed by their keepers. They are more like cattle then fish.
They are good eats, mild tasting and low calorie, sustainable farm raised fish, healthy and monitored, free from contaminants that plague some fisheries. Safe to eat as often as you like. Grocery store prices range from 5.99 to 9.99 a pound for farm raised trout. You can save hundreds of dollars by learning to catch stocked trout.
Trout fishing season is a put and take fishery, the state puts them in and the fishermen take them out. They are stocked to provide sport for fisherman nationwide. With generous limits on how many you can take a day, you can stock your freezer quickly depending on how often you go fishing.
There are several things any fishermen or woman can learn about catching stocked trout. Read and apply the things I share in this book and you can take full advantage of trout fishing season and have plenty of fun and enjoyment while doing it.



The Fly Caster Who Tried to Make Peace With the World
http://www.amazon.com/Caster-Tried-Make-Peace-World-ebook/dp/B00...

For Ian Mac Bride, his way begins almost accidentally when, in 1909, he watches a fly-casting tournament in New York's Central Park, and begins to dream of becoming a great fly caster.
But soon Ian experiences personal tragedy, and then is appalled by the unexpected slaughter of World War I.
He retreats into the world of fly fishing and fly casting, and meets unforgettable anglers like: Doc, a Civil War veteran, who tells how, after he enlisted in return for drinking money, he was unexpectedly changed by the horror of war; Izzy, a mysterious immigrant, who, in his way, teaches Ian perhaps the most important lesson of long-distance fly casting; and George M. L. La Branche who, though torn by self-doubt, writes the book that revolutionizes fly fishing.

---------------

This is a better deal than previous, also not high on hassle scale for $250 but YMMV.
Igot in same deal ending October 10 but was late in posting and saw this is now extended to Dec 5 so posting here.

Data points:
I completed painless online opening and kept all sceenshots, Took the most basic of their checking. Did not order checks.
Online setup was quick but needed to wait until debit card arrived though their process says can work w/o debit card.
The online verification was most weird as the credit Qs they ask during online setup were vague and they called to verify some of that.
I wasn't sure of $500 DD even though CSR said ACH may work, other CSR said should be payroll, ss etc so took no chances and did payroll DD just for 1 pay.
They are slow to set up external fund transfer (takes 10+ days after trial deposits) but was easily able to pull cash out from DD next day online
After DD completion verified that I am on track to get $250

I did already have acct with them in 2011 and closed but seems they kept old login id alive so was able to use that
Funny and alarming: in there my very old other bank account external transfer was still present -- I let the sleeping lions lie.
Overall worth doing as only irritation was long wait for ach trial deposits

Oh and avoiding monthly fees need 8 debit transactions or 500DD per month.
So been doing 8 debit transactions online paying cell phone $1 x 8

Update from others:
Offer code is RETB1014, but on applying many reporting a need for a "Reservation Code" -- contacting Key they say the reservation code was on the mailer
I wonder if calling key (for those in the mentioned states) to resend any such mailer will work -- as plenty of time until 12/5

Those who cannot get Key to send you a mailer or did not get one might need to take up this lower ($200) offer posted earlierhttp://www.fullofdeals.com/forums/finance/1395634/

Comcast unauthorized hard credit pull
Added on : Saturday October 25th 2014 10:00:06 PM

Views: 64 Replies: 3 Comcast hard pulled my credit report on Oct 3rd & billed me for a new service at an address I moved out over 2 months ago. USPS forwarded the bill to my new address 2 days ago.

I contacted comcast, spoke with few of their executive dept reps over the phone. They told me the charge is removed and promised to contact the credit bureau to have the hard pull "MASKED". Before I moved out, I transferred the service out to my new address. So there was No mistake on my part. But seems like Comcast still billed me and pulled my credit for new tenant's service order.
First I thought that was another meaning of removal and told them fine do it. Almost 2 weeks later, I still see the HP and even contacted Equifax to inquire. They told me the HP is still there, not masked or removed & comcast hasn't contacted them to mask or remove it. Called Comcast again and the agent tells me to wait bit longer.

I know they don't care about the HP but I do as I don't waste HP for nothing and specially when this is an illegal, unauthorized inquiry on my CR.
I just filed a BBB complaint to have it DELETED from my CR. I don't want 'MASKED" . Masked still means the HP is there. I have asked Comcast to send me a letter showing the unauthorized hard inquiry removal. Because if they have done something to correct their mistake, I needed proof. They can have it deleted just as they were able to pull my credit.

Has this happened to you and what did you do?

In addition, in most cases, you will not receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party or if the merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader to process it."

hopefully this will help many of you save a few bucks as the holidays approach!

---------------

This is a better deal than previous, also not high on hassle scale for $250 but YMMV.
Igot in same deal ending October 10 but was late in posting and saw this is now extended to Dec 5 so posting here.

Data points:
I completed painless online opening and kept all sceenshots, Took the most basic of their checking. Did not order checks.
Online setup was quick but needed to wait until debit card arrived though their process says can work w/o debit card.
The online verification was most weird as the credit Qs they ask during online setup were vague and they called to verify some of that.
I wasn't sure of $500 DD even though CSR said ACH may work, other CSR said should be payroll, ss etc so took no chances and did payroll DD just for 1 pay.
They are slow to set up external fund transfer (takes 10+ days after trial deposits) but was easily able to pull cash out from DD next day online
After DD completion verified that I am on track to get $250

I did already have acct with them in 2011 and closed but seems they kept old login id alive so was able to use that
Funny and alarming: in there my very old other bank account external transfer was still present -- I let the sleeping lions lie.
Overall worth doing as only irritation was long wait for ach trial deposits

Oh and avoiding monthly fees need 8 debit transactions or 500DD per month.
So been doing 8 debit transactions online paying cell phone $1 x 8

Get it while it is still FREEBook DescriptionPublication Date: September 7, 2013Everything is so expensive these days! Even when you just need a few things at the grocery store, it ends up being hundreds of dollars!

What if a short eBook could save you money every single time you visit the grocery store, for the rest of your life?

You've probably been stuck behind someone in line who holds everyone up because they have handfuls of coupons. It's frustrating to wait in line, but what's more upsetting is that they are literally saving 50, 70 even 90% on their bill. They're winning.

How to do they do it?

Well, there's an elite group of shoppers who call themselves Couponers. These people know the tricks of the trade, and can get unbelievable savings with the coupons that most people throw out.

How can I get in on that?

The first book from Deep Cove Publishing, How to Coupon Shop Like a Pro, is made just for you. You're tired of spending way too much money for necessities, and you just need some breathing room in your budget. So we got one of the best couponers around and asked for his secrets - and he told us!

Are you ready to learn how to save hundreds of dollars every month and live a richer life by learning how to coupon?

For less than the price of a fancy coffee or two (admit it, you have a few every day) you can get this book that will pay or itself the very first time you go shopping, and every other time after that.

That sounds like a pretty good deal, right? Pay a few bucks now, and save tons of money for the rest of your LIFE? Where do I sign?

Here's what you're going to learn in this book:
Is Coupon Shopping Worth the Effort?
Coupon Rules and Etiquette
Various Kinds of Coupons
Advanced Coupon Finding Strategies
Coupon Organization Tips
How to Plan Your Shopping Trip
Pro Tips and Advice
The Best Links to All Things Coupon

If you're not frustrated by your growing grocery bills, this book isn't for you. Seriously - if you don't need hundreds or thousands of extra dollars per year, do not buy this book.

If, however, you think you could find something to spend a few hundred extra dollars on, you need this book. Do not go to the grocery store again before reading this book - you'll be wasting A LOT more money than the price of this book.

Happy couponing!

Views: 54 Replies: 0 Happiness: How to Stop Feeling Depressed, Hopeless, Lonely, Sad and Be Happy


Get it when it is still FREEBook DescriptionPublication Date: January 15, 2014Life Changing Wisdom on How To Be Happy
Are you ready to discover the secrets to happiness that work? The wisdom found in this book has the power to change your life from being on the edges of depression to smiling again. These are proven methods that work for overcoming sadness and obtaining gladness.

Amber Rain, the author, writes in such a way that you wont have to waste a lot of your time searching for the excellent content. NO! She writes in a numerical style that will allow you to start applying these principles to your life immediately.A Few Ideas from The Book On Happiness
1. A wise friend of mine says this to me all of the time: Have a nice day, unless youve made other plans. Please take a moment to think about that statement and let it soak into your thoughts and attitudes in the present moment. Are you planning on having a nice day today? Are you focused on all of the bad things in life? You really do have the power to change your life through making decisions about how you want your life to be.

2. Have you ever heard that what you focus on grows? If you focus all of your attention on all of the negative things in life, you will eventually begin to feel hopeless and overly discouraged. What are you focusing on in your life, good things or bad things?

3. Youve heard it said: Happiness is an inside job. The word job indicates that it takes effort to reach the place of being happy. I share with you the wisdom that has the power to set you on a pathway to having a happier life; all you have to do is apply wisdom. Can you make the decision right now, to really work on being happier?

When you are finished reading these 51 ways to be happier you will:

Have social skills that will help you interact with anyone at any time, even a stranger
Have the wisdom you need in order to get along with others
Understand the importance of having goals and be inspired to accomplish a few
Have gained insight into why you are feeling so sad and how you can counteract those feelings through changing your thinking and behavior patterns
Be inspired to make subtle changes in your life until they become routines that lead to happiness
Learned the most important key to being a happy person
Gained communication skills that will attribute to your happiness
And much, much more

Plus more ideas here how to be happy from the book:
18. Learn to delegate whenever possible, whether at work or at home. Frequently, you don't have to do everything yourself. Enlisting the support of family, friends and coworkers can build stronger relationships and decrease your sense of isolation. When you feel as though you are not alone, you will feel better about living.

19. Expectations lead to resentments. If you are expecting someone to act in a particular way, you are just setting yourself up to be irritated. Learn to live by this guideline: Live and let live. When you let go of trying to control outcomes, you will be a lot happier. Focus on the things you can change and let go of the things that you cannot.

The wisdom contained in this book will help relieve:
-Anxiety
-Depression
-Hopelessness
-Despair
-Uncertainty
-Fear of the future
-Regrets from the past

There are so many things that affect your happiness:
-Issues of rejection
-Abandonment issues
-Peoples attitudes
-Job situations
-Family life
-Daily routines

Views: 2 Replies: 0 This is in Massachustts and town to my knowledge does not have any additional legal requirements. The complex is ~8 units with a few duplex style places and 1 large master house that has been split up into 4 or so units.

The landlord says that he needs to refurbish 2/3 of the apartments in order to get a new bank loan after the property being tied up in probate for many years and having tax issues he needs to refinance from an ~8% loan down to the current rates now that it is out of probate (presumably a cashout mortgage that would allow him to pay off the tax issues as well).

The thing is the "refurbished" apartments he is talking about aren't all that refurbished. He hasn't done any more work on them than what I would consider the absolute minimum amount of work you would do to rent out an apartment. He is honestly borderline slumlord. His "refurbished apartment doesn't even have a proper rug replacement and the kitchen cabinets are in crappy shape.

The apartments are the exact same size though they have some minor layout differences which have both pros and cons (I would say the new place is a more in the cons side than the pros side).

He wants me to sign a new lease when I move to the new apartment with similar terms as the old one though he is willing to put terms in it to allow me to break the lease with 30 days notice as long as it isn't winter.

Anyways does his claim to need 2/3 of units be refurbished sound like a legit bank requirement? Can anyone think of anything shady that he might be pulling? Mostly worried about things that would affect me, but also curious about what other games he might be pulling (aka scamming others). I might be able to get more terms out of him if I truly have the upper hand here. For whatever reason he really seems desperate for me to move... Perhaps he is telling the truth about the bank requirement, but honestly it all just seems weird.

Get it while it is FREE

Book DescriptionPublication Date: November 13, 2013 | Age Level: 0 - 6 | Grade Level: P - 1This is an educational book for babies, toddlers and very young children. It features 14 different shapes, and 14 different colors. The shapes include not only the basics, but hexagon, pentagon, octagon and a few more advanced ones. There are also some tips to parents at the end for more ideas to reinforce the learning of shapes and colors to children.

I found as a mother, I tended to just teach the basic shapes and colors. Im not sure why I stopped there, but I assumed thats what young children learned. When I became a full time nanny, the little boy I cared for loved shapes. He enjoyed every minute of our learning time, so I kept going in the teaching of shapes because he mastered the basic ones quickly.

By 15 months old, he knew ALL the shapes in this book in various mediums. He couldn't say them mind you, but he could accurately, find them, every time. I believe oval was one of his very first words. I learned a lot from him and how much young children can learn, if well teach it. Dont be nervous about teaching very young children the more advanced shapes, just make it fun. Make the learning process itself, enjoyable.

Margin Loan for Real Estate from Interactive Brokers
Added on : Wednesday October 22nd 2014 04:00:15 PM
g: 0 Posted By: corwinamber
Views: 71 Replies: 2 There've been a few threads in the past talking about taking out a Margin Loan from Interactive Brokers (with their crazy-low interest rates for large portfolios) to purchase real-estate, either as a bridge loan or, presumably, longer term as long if the rates stay low enough. So currently a $1.5M margin loan from IB would be at about a rate of 1%. That's certainly enticing compared to a traditional mortgage (not to mention the lack of fees, paperwork BS, etc.) I'm well aware that there's a much higher risk if securities go south but I'd probably put something like $2.5M in assets into the account so it would take a pretty nasty downturn to be a problem. (Part of the reason to do this, rather than just liquidating the securities and paying cash, is to avoid some capital gains I have on a couple of those securities. It was a good call to buy AAPL and TSLA last year )

But I'm wondering if anybody out there has done something similar, particularly with IB, and can reassure me that I'm not missing something here.

This was not advertised anywhere in the store, hence the YMMV, but I called 3 other stores in the area when I got home, and they all confirmed the same details when asking about a "bill credit of some sort".

For me, this equates to $900 in service which is huge! But even 1-2 lines will give anyone a few free months worth of service.

Okay. It seems that some people haven't heard about the company and phone yet, because it's a very new company. They use a controversial marketing approach - the invite system - mainly because their production can't keep up. It took me a few months to get a invite and I just bought mine (64GB) recently. I have been very impressed. $299 for 16 GB & $349 for 64GB. Please note these are unlocked phones that can be used on AT&T and T-Mobile networks. Now, anyone can place an order within an hour on Oct. 27th without an invite. I thought it's a pretty good deal, because that's half the price of other comparable phones.

(it's complicated due to no heath insurance for 6 years and we lost our primary home which was mortgaged to cover medical expenses (no one would sell us a plan) and finally had to file chapter 7, we moved into our 90% finished vacation home (they let use keep it) had to give up my Ram, RV and primary home. We have medicare coverage now thank God.We have a few new medical bills, car payments and credit cards (from meds) we owe as well. Total amount in debt is only about $77,000 that we can pay off with a portion of our lump sum in cash plus thousands extra left over to bank. The other slightly larger portion to be rolled over into an IRA (no taxes to pay) which I wouldn't draw on only until I'm 65 than take small monthly payments.Our health is fair to poor actually more leaning toward poor. Our monthly income (we'll lose the $900 insurance payments if I took the buyout or annuity) without these debt obligations my monthly living expense would be $1731.00. Food, utilities, clothing, insurance, deductibles/co-pays and such all fractured it. We don't pay any type of taxes, property or state/feds income. Of course we'll take a 20% tax hit on the cash out, but we may get some back.Total income would be $3350.00. Amount free with no obligations would be $1,600.00 per month and will be split to saving per month and most importantly our home will be ours again.If I took the annuity option 2 instead I would get $1,450 a month right NOW for life, BUT per terms of my personal disability insurance contract once I do that the $900 monthly payments stop as well. So basically I'll only get $500 extra income but the whole $1,400 will now be taxable income. 17K a year taxable.I'm leaning to the boat load of money. I feel we can do without the pension payments and lets face it we may not live long enough to enjoy it, plus my only child could be left something other than bills.What do you think?Thanks

Collection agency letter on a 4+ year old medical bill
Added on : Tuesday October 21st 2014 04:00:07 PM
g: 0 Posted By: peteron
Views: 29 Replies: 1 Hi FWers, I got this letter three weeks ago from Front Arnett debt collection agency on a medical bill that I was charged in 2009. I was in school at that time, and went to a clinic outside school for doctor visit. I was charged a few hundred bucks which I was obligated to pay within my deductible. I received the bill but didnot pay because it was a bit too much to afford at that time. I remember I got a call once from the clinic, but eventually I did not pay. Since then nothing has happened and I totally forgot about it. Now after nearly 5 years, the debt collection letter shows up in my door - which is shocking to me since I have moved numerous times in the past five years. How do they manage to find me?? Now they demand me to pay full amount, but do not say anything about the bill - I wonder if they will be able to validate it or not. I should have responded to the letter earlier, but I just saw the letter lying on my desk today. I am going to hit the 30-day window next week. I have excellet credit and donot want this to ruin it; on the other hand, it would be nice if I donot have to pay the hundreds bucks. Given that it is a really old bill, I want to consult people here, what is the strategy I should take?

Nokias HERE Maps launched on Samsungs Galaxy smartphones recently to offer true offline navigation and an alternative to Googles preloaded Maps.But the app was in testing only on Samsungs smartphones even despite the leaked apk file that allowed us all to sideload the HERE navigation on non-Galaxy smartphones. Now thats about to change Nokia is releasing the apk for all Android smartphones so you can try HERE maps for yourself.Youll need to download the apk file to your smartphone and sideload it (using a file manager of some sort) but youll need to go into the Security settings of your device and enable the Install from Unknown Sources option. Nokia has the entire step by step tutorial over at the source link.The app is still in beta so a few bugs are to be expected but it should be safe to try out.

Views: 86 Replies: 1 A few days ago we lost water supply in our house. I saw a city truck on our street within minutes and later on when I drove out a few block away I saw city workers doing some ground work with water everwhere. I suspect they may be while doing some ground work, they broke the water main or something of that sort. DIdn't care to find out the details at the time.

When I came home in the evening water was back. I turned on the tap and water/air gushed out initially and I didn't think much of it and I was just happy that water was back.

This afternoon was the first time I went to my backyard and I noticed that water was gushing out of a drip pipe in my sprinkler system. I suspected that when water was back a few days ago the water/air pressure was so high that it boke the water valve and also bursted the pipe open. So I had water gushing out in my backyard for days.

Now that it happened just now I don't know what my water bill will be, but probably in the order of hundreds if not more. And this makes me worried.

I don't have any proof that this is the reason why my pipe broke. Should I discuss with the City Water department about this at all? Should I do it right away or should I wait til my water bill comes?

Another thing that worries me is that we are in a drought and the city implemented measures to fine people with certain excess water use. Would the city turn around and fine me for negligence since the water was left running for days?

Driveway Easement - any concerns?
Added on : Friday October 17th 2014 11:00:02 PM
g: 0 Posted By: dblevitan
Views: 43 Replies: 0 We're considering a house in WA that has a driveway easement along one edge of it. This part of the driveway is shared between this house and the next property. The only information I've found (from public documents) is that there is a non-exclusive right of ingress and egress to the owner of the other property, that maintenance costs are shared between the two houses, and that no structure can be built within 55 feet from this edge of the property. I don't know, at this time, whether other agreements exist. This would be our first home purchase and neither of us has experience with such easements, so hopefully someone can answer a few questions from the financial side of things:

The properties are both on a relatively steep hill, so if you accidentally drove off the road you'd drop 10 feet or so. Should we have any concerns about liability from someone visiting the neighbors house and crashing while on this part of the driveway?
How is maintenance typically shared? Who decides that the driveway needs to be repaved?
What is the requirement for something like snow removal in this situation? Can we be forced to get a snow removal service even if we don't want it (primarily because snow falls only a few times a year around here)?
Given that the easement specifies nothing about the width, can we be forced to expand the width of the driveway? At the moment it's actually pretty narrow and two cars could probably just pass each other.

Thanks for any help you may have!

Creating Mobile Apps with Xamarin.Forms, Preview Edition (Developer Reference)
http://www.amazon.com/Creating-Xamarin-Forms-Preview-Developer-R...

Written by programming legend Charles Petzold and created jointly by Microsoft Press and Xamarin Inc., this Preview Edition ebook is about writing applications for Xamarin.Forms, the new mobile development platform for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone unveiled by Xamarin in May 2014. Xamarin.Forms lets you write shared user-interface code in C# and XAML (the eXtensible Application Markup Language) that maps to native controls on these three platforms. (The final edition of this ebook will be published in the spring of 2015.) This ebook is for C# programmers who want to write applications for the three most popular mobile platformsiOS, Android, and Windows Phonewith a single code base. Xamarin.Forms also has applicability for those programmers who want eventually to use C# and the Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android libraries to Target the native application programming interfaces (APIs) of these platforms. Xamarin.Forms can be a big help in getting started with these platforms or in constructing a prototype or proof-of-concept application. This ebook assumes that you know C# and have some familiarity with the use of the .NET Framework. However, when it describes some C# and .NET features that might be somewhat new to recent C# programmers, the ebook adopts a somewhat slower pace. In particular, the introduction of the async keyword and await operator in Chapter 3 follows a discussion that shows how to do asynchronous programming using traditional callback methods.

Views: 61 Replies: 0 We used to live in a single family home that was converted to a rental property few years ago. We reported all rental income and all related expenses including mortgage interest etc on Schedule E together with our tax return every year. We never included or claimed depreciation on the property.

We recently sold the property for a small capital gain amount. We are confused about the following:

1. We are in the 15% marginal tax bracket and we were told that we will not be taxed on for the gain (a zero capital gain liability). Is this correct?

2. Are going to be taxed on the depreciation recapture even though we did not take advantage and didn't claim depreciation in our prior tax returns? Should we amend prior years tax returns or claim depreciation for the last year of ownership?

3 What is the tax rate on the depreciation recapture? Which IRS form we use to report the sale when we file next year return?

Views: 43 Replies: 1 Hopefully this isn't to off topic but I feel like FW finance people would know the answer to my question.

I was rear ended last week and the other driver admitted fault immediately. A few days after the accident, I got a call from the driver's insurance (State Farm
) and they said they would take 100% responsibility and I just had to take the car to a shop of my choice to get an estimate and their adjuster would go out to approve the repairs. However, the guy I talked to made it very clear that they would not pay for a rental car for me until the repairs began (i.e. If I drop my car off at a shop on Monday but State Farm
doesnt make it out until Thursday to see the car, I'm SOL for those 3 days and I have to pay for the rental car myself). Does that make any sense and is that common? I'm not trying to rip off State Farm
but how am I supposed to get to work for those days where I don't have a car?

Leadership IS for Everyone
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00G2BL15Y

Until now, leadership has always been viewed as the purview of a select few - it seems to be more about the "what" these leaders want their subjects to do, rather than the "how-to." That's a mistake, says Vinay Nadig. In this persuasive and pragmatic new book, Vinay makes a case that (a) leadership is accessible to anyone and (b) leadership is a set of sustainable daily behaviors.
He lays out a practical and instantly usable "leadership launch platform" in the form of 20 Leadership Secrets or techniques. These 20 secrets are the foundation of leadership as a way of life - the only real way to perform at an exceptional level.
Read what Marshall Goldsmith, 2 million-selling author of the New York Times bestseller, Mojo and What Got You Here Won't Get You There has to say about "Leadership IS for Everyone":
"In Leadership IS for Everyone, Vinay lays out a vision to achieve exceptional performance and achieve fulfillment at work. His core tenets of doing things rather than being somebody, of sustainable behaviors rather than a belief in hierarchy and title hit the mark in todays workplace. Using a practical workbook-like approach, Vinay leads you through the process of establishing yourself as a leader and then launching into the highest levels of leadership where you focus not just on yourself, but in transforming others. If you are looking to take your performance to the next level and achieve not just your goals but true fulfillment, then reading and using the 20 leadership secrets he shares in this book will prove invaluable."

Kustom PA50 personal PA system - $69 at Guitar Center
Added on : Wednesday October 15th 2014 03:00:02 AM

Views: 73 Replies: 0 linked up here...

These were a good deal at the previous $99 but at $69 (less 4% FatCash), the PA50 is a great, cheap portable PA. I know a few uke players who swear by these setups from Kustom. Btw, five star rated by 34 people. Not too shabby.

From the page:
The PA50 PA System from Kustom combines quality performance and convenient features, all in a highly portable package. Youll find that the PA50 works well in a variety of environments, amplifying vocals, instruments, keyboards, drum machines, audio devices, and more.

The two 4.5" speakers and high-frequency driver provide just the right combination of high and midrange sounds. This balance ensures your vocals cut through the mix while minimizing harsh and unwanted frequencies. The PA50 Construction is based on the same tried-and-true techniques as the rest of our speaker line. This includes a heavy-duty steel grill and rigid corners. This model also utilizes a high-frequency driver for crisp, accurate reproduction of treble frequency and articulate speech.

For the soloist or acoustic duo, the PA50 works well when positioned on a standard speaker stand. As your following grows, so does your sound system; multiple units can be connected to increase the sound coverage in your venue of choice.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that 80 percent of childhood abuse victims later suffer from at least one abuse-induced psychological disorder. Its proven that the effects of childhood abuse follow women into adulthood. Yet few men are prepared to deal with those effects, even when their own wife is the one who is suffering. And their wifes suffering becomes their own suffering as their needs arent being met by a wife who is powerless to control her inner turmoil.

IF TODAY WERE THE LAST DAY OF YOUR LIFE, WOULD YOU WANT TO DO WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO DO TODAY?


Steve Jobs asked this question a few years ago.

What is your answer? Like most people, you certainly would answer with a big no. So what is preventing you from doing the things you love, the things that exhilarate you, the things you should do before you kick the proverbial bucket? This book is not your usual bucket list book. It will blow your mind with items as easy-to-implement and original as sending a love letter and flowers to your future self; writing sycophantic letters to the President of the United States; shower in a waterfall with your lover; and finishing a 1,000-piece Jigsaw Puzzle.

>>> The book contains a helpful Discussion Guide and information about sequel Pop!!! The Power of Positive How to Completely Change Your Life in 7 Days. Through thought-provoking questions, the book gives extensive advice on how to use the discussion guide, how to inform decisions related to the topics at hand, and how to best read it alone, in reading groups, with your partner, or as part of learning activities, among others.

Views: 83 Replies: 0 I apologize if this has been brought up before. It seems like something FW would have covered, but all I could turn up when searching for it was owner-financed housing. I have a truck that I've been trying to sell for the last few months. The best offers I have had (paying cash) have been around 2k. I wanted $2700. I got an offer from some one I know today for $4000, 1k down, and I finance the rest. I am not hurting for money and if I can suck more money out of this truck then great.

1. What (if any) is my liability if I am the lien-holder on the title? ex: If the driver wrecks the car, does something illegal with it, crashes it into a school for blind orphan kids, etc. I obviously wouldn't want the title in my name, so I figured I would just put a lien on the title as any financial institution would.

2. Any advice on the structuring of the contract? For example, making it easy to Repo if necessary, or something about insurance.

3. Does anyone have any experience with this kind of thing? I know it is a risk, but the $1000 down payment would be more than enough to cover any repo costs, and we are talking about a 60% increase in price, which I think justifies the risk. But I am up for a debate.

BizEtiquette
http://www.amazon.com/BizEtiquette-Cassie-Piasecki-ebook/dp/B009...

A Small but Mighty Etiquette Guide for Entrepreneurs, Small Biz Owners, Freelancers, Independent Contractors, and anyone who just wants to be a bit more classy in Biz.
As a lifestyle entrepreneur, I work and socialize with many entrepreneurs, freelancers and independent contractors. I realize everyone is not cut from the same bolt of etiquette cloth that I am. As technology becomes smarter, I have noticed that the lines of good etiquette are blurred even more.
The best way for me, up until now, to teach others about good BizEtiquette was by example. I set the standards of how I ran my biz and hoped a droplet of good etiquette stuck to the people I met. People can argue that you shouldnt worry what others think of you. But in this world, the way it is today, competition is fierce and news travels fast. Id rather ensure that my actions show me as a biz owner with honesty, integrity and a little good karma thrown into the mix than as a haphazard gal with a who gives a s*#t attitude when dealing with customers and vendors.
This little guide is filled with a lot of common sense, some helpful hints and a bit of humor. It is the perfect guide for anyone just starting out in the biz world and those who need to bring the blurred lines of good etiquette into sharp focus.

Operation Money: A Financial Guide for Military Service Members and Families [Kindle Edition With Audio/Video]
http://www.amazon.com/Operation-Money-Financial-Military-Familie...

"From investing in education and affording a home to choosing the right credit products and adequately saving for retirement, Operation Money offers military-specific advice to achieving financial stability." --Michael E. O'Neill, Chairman, Citigroup Inc., First Lieutenant, U.S. Marine Corps, 1969-1971

When it comes to money, military service members and their families face financial challenges that civilians simply dont.
While serving on active duty, members of the military are typically asked to move every few years and must learn how to manage money during multiple deployments. And managing the finances means figuring out a way to maintain a balanced budget while communication is limited. Meanwhile, the spouse at home is essentially functioning as a single parent without the necessary skills and tools to make serving as the familys Chief Financial Officer as easy as possible.
That is, until now.

How to Buy a Car With No Cash, No Credit and No Time?
Added on : Friday October 10th 2014 06:00:12 AM
g: 0 Posted By: mwa423
Views: 61 Replies: 7 A buddy of mine came to me a few weeks ago, drives a 2004 Mazda 3 with 161k miles and he is starting to think that putting additional money into it would be throwing good money after bad. We talked, I helped him map out a budget and the type of car payments he could afford thinking while his credit wasn't good, we could probably get him in somewhere at 10-15%. Not good, but hopefully re-fi out after a couple years of good payments. The reality is that he hasn't been able to get approved by any banks he has talked to (including USAA, Navy Fed, etc.). I'm not sure if the retail businesses just won't touch his level of credit, even though I know that banks like Wells Fargo Dealer Services take some rough subprime credit.

An additional problem is that he had (has?) a title loan on his current car, his plan was to just trade it in and let the dealer pay it off.

After a lot of searching, he found a few cars he was interested in, several older models which were under $5k but he thought were good buys. The obvious downside is most banks wouldn't accept those cars (due to age) as collateral on an auto loan (2001, 2002, 2003, etc.). He also doesn't have the cash in the bank to pay cash for these vehicles and has been turned down for personal loans from banks (including prosper and lendingclub).

Engine blew this weekend and the car is probably toast (don't know all the details). At this point, it is unlikely he has any significant amount of cash (probably less than $1,000 in his checking account), credit is poor (only one credit card with a $500 limit, $0 cash advance ability). I don't want to tell him to go hit a dealership and get screwed on 25% financing and get caught back in a debt trap and I really don't want him rolling to a buy here-pay here joint. But what other options can I suggest? The only one I can think of is to send him to adealership, talks like he'll pay cash, negotiate price and allows them to offer financing. See what they can get him.

IMHO, this is one cool cat !

And at $19.98, instead of eBay's CHEAPEST price of $31.99, it's a deal.

I ordered SIX myself.

I'm no decorator, but the usual Halloween Yard Display of various unrelated items all piled together presents no unified image, just a mixed up mess.

When is the last time you saw even TWO of the same airblown in a yard ?

Well, SIX BLACK CATS, all together, surrounded by 50 (or more) illuminated plastic pumpkins should look pretty cool (I bought them a few years ago at 75% off - $1.25 ea at Target).

Add a Smoke Machine - yeah, baby.

Views: 131 Replies: 2 Hello everyone I have had credit cards for the past few years now.. keeping up with my balance and everything is great!

I've decided that come March of 2015 I want to finance a $25,000 car and put as much down on it as possible and I need some advice.. (I plan to keep this car as long as possible.. I've looked into leasing and I decided purchasing is a better investment.)

My situation:
I will begin saving $500/month starting in November and ending March which should leave me with $2,500.. I will of course be trying to save more than $500 if possible leaving me with hopefully $3,000 for my down payment. + My tax return..

I want to take this money every month and deposit into an account that is gaining interest.. But I do not know where to go or what my best options are.. CD's offer a low return.. especially for only saving 5 months.. and you can forget the .80% APY of your average savings account

My question is.. Where do I put my money for the 5 month period? The higher the APY the better.

What's your points/miles strategy?
Added on : Thursday October 09th 2014 03:00:05 AM
g: 0 Posted By: unkinected
Views: 23 Replies: 0 Just thought I'd try to start up a convo about why (not how) you accumulate miles and points, or one versus the other.

Personally, cash is more important to me, soI tend to focus my efforts on Cash Back strategies. Cash is the most flexible option, and though it doesn't always get you the best deal (especially when factoring in mileage sales, transfer bonuses,etc), IMO it works out in the long run. Plus, I don't travel a ton - a few times a year.

Because of that, I haven't really focused on accumulating any carrier specific miles & points. Every once in awhile my saturation point of reading posts about miles will hit, and I'll consider switching up my game. For example, next year I'm planning a Europe trip and want to make that as free as possible. So I'm looking at airline specific cards to grab for bonuses.

So what's your thoughts?
- Cash versus points?
- Are you carrier/alliance loyal? Or just grab miles whenever you can, from wherever you can, for whichever airline you can?
- Do you hesitate to sign up for new cards with bonuses when they come along (maybe saving up for an AoR), or just apply for everything as it comes out?
- Do you milk the carrier-specific cards for their after-signup bonuses? For example, Southwest gives 2 points for dollar for Southwest flights on their credit card. But I may have another card that gives me 3 points on flights. Do you use the Southwest card anyway? How do you justify the lost opportunity cost?
- I've read elsewhere that people are not carrier-loyal because it gives them the most flexibility to have a pool of miles in many different programs. But that said, why not just go for Cash Back instead, which is the most flexible? There are often more and better points earning opportunities if you're looking for cash.

I'm pretty happy with my current strategy and it's hard for me to justify buying miles, which may not have a tangible value and may decrease in value over time. Especially if I'm not at least breaking even on a cash flow basis. But I love reading how other people approach this game.

Ask for Rebate from Current Realtor?
Added on : Wednesday October 08th 2014 03:00:05 PM
g: 0 Posted By: eferrari377
Views: 130 Replies: 5 My wife and I have bought 11 properties over the past 4 years. We've used the same Realtor for all the properties (he's with ZipRealty) and on most deals ZipRealty has received 2.5% commission as the buyers agent broker.

For the last 5-7 purchases, the agent has done almost no work what so ever since I take care of all the research and communication with lender and title. He's a great guy/realtor, but I do all the online research and know EXACTLY what I'm looking for. He basically just lets me into the house when I want to see a home and we put an offer in on a home 80% of the time when we view a home. I'd say 50% of the offers we make have been accepted. I tell him how much I want to offer and I don't get any special advice from him. So if he shows a home, it's almost guaranteed he's going to get commission very soon. I never waste his time.

I know the whole escrow/closing process, so again, he doesn't do much work.

We'd like to purchase a few more homes in the next 1-2 years but now I'm interested in asking him to split his commission for me since he does almost no work, or consider going to another agent that will give me a kick back. On the last purchase the seller paid ZipRealty $7.6K and did almost no work. I don't even want to know what my agent's hourly rate translated into with the # of hours he actually worked. Has to be in the $500-$700/hr range.

So what % of the total 2.5% commission should I ask for (not sure what his split of the broker commission he gets is, but he's a vet with Zip, so probably high). And if he says no, what is a reasonable amount I can expect from other agents, so I can ask them upfront when searching?

I know SUCKISSTAPLES has mentioned before in a thread that him and other RE investors often get 50-75% kick backs but that was a while ago. Is that still the same case and is that what I should ask for?

The $1,000 Pill That Could Cripple the VAs Budget
Added on : Wednesday October 08th 2014 05:00:14 AM
g: 0 Posted By: SangioveseW
Views: 38 Replies: 0 CNBC article: http://www.cnbc.com/id/102070424?trknav=homestack:topnews:6

A few quotes:

While struggling to beef up its medical staff and sharply reduce the time it takes veterans to get appointments at health facilities, the staggering cost of Sovaldi, a specialty drug to treat Hepatitis C, is threatening to blow a $1.3 billion hole in the agency's budget in the next two years. It's a fiscal crisis that could force deep agency cutbacks in other areas.

The VA is the largest provider of care in the U.S. for chronic Hepatitis C virus infections, which can destroy the liver and require a liver transplant or result in death. The VA has 174,000 veterans under its care with documented HCV; another 42,000 could be added once they're properly tested.

Yet the medicine costs $1,000 per pill or $84,000 for the obligatory 12-week treatment. The 3.2 million Americans who are infected by Hepatitis C could benefit greatly from the treatment. Still, the total cost of covering those people with the new drug would exceed the $300 billion the U.S. is spending annually on pharmaceuticals.

The drug already is beginning to strain the budget of one major government agency and could dramatically run up the costs of other health-related programs, including Medicaid and Medicare as well as federal and state prison systems that are required to provide inmates with health care services.

Although Gilead and the VA negotiated down the price of a tablet from $1,000 to $543, according to one source, the long-term cost of Sovaldi to the VA could be staggering and will eclipse the treatment costs of most other diseases, including cancer.Federal and state officials, for example, likely will be able to negotiate big discounts with the drug manufacturers or establish clinical protocols that limit the number of people eligible for treatment."Now that's a valid point," Salo added. "But the concern a lot of my members have is that they don't actually think those types of protocols, while they are certainly medically justified, are going to get upheld in the courts."Salo said he could imagine the courts bowing to pressure from the Centers for Disease Control and other public health advocates who say, "This is a communicable infectious disease and it is unconscionable not to cover everyone."

Buying car at end of lease term - advice needed
Added on : Tuesday October 07th 2014 05:00:09 AM
g: 0 Posted By: peps2004
Views: 63 Replies: 1 Our car lease is ending in a few months and we're planning on buying it for the residual of approx $9k. Prior to leasing this car, we'd only ever bought cars worth k in cash, so both leasing and now buying a car for this amount is new to us.

I therefore want to make sure that we're doing all the right things, hence why I'm seeking help/advice from the FW community. I have a few questions that people here will hopefully be able to help with, plus I'll happily take any other advice or suggestions that people may have about the whole process:

​Auto loan - We're planning on getting a loan for the remaining amount. I've seen PenFed mentioned before as having good rates, so we'll be checking them, but are there any other lenders you'd recommend with good rates? (n.b. credit score is about 770). Is there some kind of comparison site that would list these?
Interest rate - Is it best to apply for several auto loans at the same time to see which will give the best interest rate? I'massuming that a score of 770 won't give us access to the best advertised rates, so don't want to only apply for one if there's a better deal out there, but I also don't want to apply for several if this will cause some kind of problem.
Residual - Will the company we're currently leasing from try to add any fees at the end if we want to buy? I've a feeling that due to our inexperience we didn't get the best possible terms on the lease originally, so want to make sure we don't pay for unnecessary fees at the end of the term.
Fees - What other fees should we be budgeting for? Sales tax? Title fees? How much would these usually be?

Anything else that I'm missing?

Buying new vs used car
Added on : Sunday October 05th 2014 08:00:06 PM
g: 0 Posted By: SaulHudson
Views: 30 Replies: 1 There seems to be a few car buying threads lately, but I don't think this has been covered. Here's the question. Should I buy the a used 2012 vehicle for roughly 14K paid in cash? Or, should I be the new version of that vehicle for roughly 19K at 0% interest for 60 months? I normally would never even consider buying a new car, but at 0% interest... I started to wonder... is it really costing me that much more to buy new?

Some notes:
1) I'd rather not say the vehicle name in case any of the dealer's I've been dealing with are on FW. Yes, I realize that I'm incredibly paranoid.
2) I can afford the new vehicle. I have retirement accounts, 529, savings, and emergency accounts relatively well funded. I normally don't like buying new because of the cost.
3) I like to drive cars forever. So, in Theory, a car that is 2 years newer will give me an extra 2 years on the back end before it bombs.
4) As to what I'd do with the extra cash on hand from the 0% interest, it would probably be a mix of savings (maybe 30%), CDs (10%), and blue chip stocks (60%). These are approximate numbers. If the stock market tanks, I'd put more cash in. Certainly the actions of the market in the last week or so have given me cause to think that it may pay to have additional cash on hand to deploy if this market ever finally tanks.
5) If buying the used car, I'm not sure if could put the car on CC. I believe this is YMMV. If I can, I would use 2% back card.

Views: 175 Replies: 0 Hi all. Im a long time reader first time poster. I saw a ad for this on Facebook after I was searching to buy some splitters online and this looked like a deal compared to the others I looked at, and also appeared to be the lowest price online for these splitters (3x for $3.98). It seems to be unadvertised on Amazon, but if you go toCMC2002H Splitterand if you add 3 of them to your cart the third one is discounted to free with the total for me being $3.98 with free S&H. Seller seems to have pretty good rating and the model splitter looks good on other Amazon reviews.

Anyway I needed a few for home. Hopefully someone else may too.

Diminished Value after accident
Added on : Friday October 03rd 2014 07:00:08 AM
g: 0 Posted By: releasefoobar
Views: 104 Replies: 0 Sorry for starting yet another diminished value thread but i want to clarify my understanding. I'm pretty sure its not worth the time/money to pursue diminished value in my case but i want to make sure.
State: Maryland
Car: 2005 VW Jetta TDI valued at 9k
I was parked on the street in my neighborhood by my house (residential neighborhood in a city). A tractor trailer came through the neighborhood trying to turn around, got stuck, and side swiped my car. Trucks are forbidden in the neighborhood.
Police were called, they refused to do a report because there was no bodily injury and did not issue the truck driver a citation for being where he shouldn't have been
We got all of his information for the truck and trailer plus his license
We spent several weeks calling to try to file a claim but the truck and trailer had different insurances, and were both rented by different companies and then rented again by a third company, the end result was no one would take our claim and pointed to another company to call. After a month of trying, I called my insurance company, explained the issue, and they suggested that at this point i should file with them (my own insurance), get the car fixed, and they will pursue the driver for the damage.
Fast forward a few months. My car is fixed and the bill was 3k.
My understanding is that if i want to pursue diminished value i would have to sue the truck driver directly instead of requesting it from my insurance company or whatever company ultimately ends up paying the claim? It is also my understanding that the car is too old to bother with diminished value?

Views: 40 Replies: 0 Hi all -

Thought the FW community might be a good place to ask this. Opening a business with a partner , who will be hands off. It's a franchise. He's putting up 75% of the capital and 75% of the monthly overhead. Comes out to about $80K over the first year compared to my 25K. He'll get paid back first -- up to 75% of the revenue until payback which we anticipate will happen sometime around month 18.

At that point, he becomes a 15% owner of the business. We're trying to decide if this is the best approach or , should his addition cash contributions (above mine) be considered a note loan, etc.

Anyone have any experience in this type of agreement ? It's a very time consuming business - will be 50-60 hour weeks for at least the first few years.

Thanks!

A Book of Photos taken in eastern and northern Japan through the four seasons of the year. Daniel has been living in Japan for over 10 years and he and Kazuya have known each other for about 9 of those years. They have been traveling around together and doing photography in northern and eastern Japan and exhibiting their work on their respective websites. Friends have been encouraging them to prepare a book of their photos so that the world can see them. They have finally gotten around to doing just that. This book highlights approximately 430 of their photos. The photos range from astounding mountain scenery taken through the seasons to close-up photos of flowers also through the seasons. If you wonder what Japan has to offer the traveler or tourist this book will give you some hints and clues as to what you might be able to see if you travel to Japan in any of the four seasons. This book will take you as far north as you can go on Hokkaido, the Northern Island, as well as to Akita, Aomori, Fukushima, Gifu, Gunma, Kanagawa, Nagano, Niigata, Saitama, Shizuoka, Tochigi, Toyama, Yamagata and Yamanashi Prefectures in Japan.

Views: 134 Replies: 0 Benjamin Prowler $74.99 @ Airgundepot.com

Benjamin Prowler .177 caliber air rifle w/ Nitro gas piston, refurbished- this is a break barrel single-shot pellet gun powered by a gas piston, not a louder spring (breaking the barrel and pulling it back compresses the piston - no multiple pumps required) - . $74.99 + S&H (was $10 ground for me) at www.airgundepot.com. This is by far the cheapest I've seen a gas piston-powered break barrel air rifle, which should be quieter than a spring gun plus it can be left cocked, which one cannot do with a spring piston gun without ruining the spring. Gas piston riflesare usually in the $120+ range and can go up to $1000 fora high end German rifle. Since this is a refurb, it has a shorter warranty, only 30 days I believe, and Airgun Depot likely has a limited stock of these, so if you're interested, you probably want to jump on this deal.

This is made by Benjamin/Crossman in China, so it's not up to the quality standards of a Weihrach, RWS/Diana, Feinwerkbau, etc... Most people say it's decently made, though, it's powerful (1000 fps w/lead pellets, 1200fps w/alloy pellets - about the velocity of a .22 Short rimfire cartridge but with less energy), fairly easy to cock and pretty accurate with the right pellet (may need to try quite a few brands and models of pellets, but most Benjamin and Crossman guns seem to shoot best with Crossman Premier pellets). Biggest complaints are mainly the same as with any sub-$200 air rifle, that the scope isn't high quality and the trigger is too heavy, too sloppy and/or has too long of a pull; I believe one can replace the trigger pretty easily with a high quality aftermarket two-stage trigger that costs about $33, made by a retired airgun enthusiast going under the name of Charlie Da Tuna - www.charliedatuna.com- per a lot of reviews and comments at Pyramid Air Gun Mall (www.pyramidair.com) the guy is legit and makes a very high quality trigger.

From Benjamin's website:

Boasting a lighter and smoother cocking force than other rifles in its class, the Prowler break barrel air rifle generates sizzling velocities up to 1200 fps. Featuring the patented Nitro Piston technology, the Prowler air rifle has reduced recoil and shoots with 70% less noise than other break barrels. With its rifled steel barrel, two-stage adjustable trigger and CenterPoint 4x32mm scope, the Prowler delivers power and accuracy in a contemporary package.

Giving my CC number to someone who may be unreliable is something else. So consider that a warning.

g: 0 Posted By: pandarn
Views: 96 Replies: 1 Please direct me if there is another thread about this!

In 2012 I had a short sale on a home. I negotiated with the bank and am currently paying back a loan for a portion of the deficiency balance. The original amount of the new loan was $5XXX. I have made all payments on this new loan on time, and all payments have been for more than the required payment amount as I would like to get this paid off.

I had been monitoring my credit reports, no problems were noted with accounts from the bank involved, until I pulled all three credit reports a few days ago. They have now reported on Equifax that I have a foreclosure (I realize a short sale affects credit scores almost the same, but this is incorrect). Also, they are reporting an outstanding balance/past due balance of $4000, which actually is the amount charged off. The new loan, for the deficiency balance, is being reported as a charged off account, with the entire remaining balance showing as past due.

I have disputed these items with Equifax. Opinions wanted on whether the accounts are actually reported the proper way and I am just in a sad state of denial about it, or if they are incorrect as I believe, or maybe a mix of correct and incorrect.

Adding to the gravy train, I landed a job with a similar salary about a month ago, so I'll be "double dipping" for a few more weeks.

What can I do to lower my tax liability for 2013?

Since I am "double dipping" for a while, I'm going to be maxing out my 401k contribution. I have a feeling I'll be subject to income limitations for Traditional IRA contributions, so I won't make those contributions until next year for calendar year 2014. I do have 2 kids, so I can contribute to their 529 plan and lower my tax liability, but I have to make those contributions before 12/31. I am maxing out my transit benefit from my new employer, but that's just a couple hundred bucks a month - so won't make a huge difference. I do have a rental property, but we didn't have a lot of expenses there, so likely will just be taking some standard deductions with that.

I know this is a fairly broad question - but I'm open to ideas on how to legally lower my federal and state tax liabilities for 2014.

School Charging $$$$$ if a teacher leaves. Legal?

Views: 4230 Replies: 80 Good Afternoon all,
I am posting on behalf of my Girlfriend. She was working at an inner city title 1 charter school teaching 2nd grade. She signed a 1 year contract that does state that a $1500 dollar fee can be charged if the teacher does not give 30 days notice. However due to the workingenvironmentand that the school has given her nothing in regards to training or other that she should not owe that money.
The administration was very loose and not very strict when dealing with students. Consequently the workingenvironmentwas not the best. My Girlfriend had student taught at an inner city school 2 years ago and another title 1 school last year. Student discipline and classroom management were not an issue. However back up by admin was lacking.
There were 4 issues that were not addressed by admin. On the first day 2 students got into a fight and when she broke it up there was no help from admin in dealing with the students. Neither was suspended or disciplined by the school at all. Another instance of children fighting in the school yard. Students trying to punch teachers. A student slapped a Para (teachers aide) and nothing was done. A student tried to shove my Girlfriend down the stairs when she was at the top standing and asking the student to get back to class. Another student elbowed her when she got close to him and asked him to come to the nurse (in order to take his medicine). None of these students have had anyrepercussionsfrom the administration. When specific events are brought to the attention of admin through email they do not respond to email but instead go directly to the teacher and speak in person. They will not (and have not) email any information that forces them to take action. They have gone so far as to side step the rules about DFS reporting about issues at home by coming directly in person to teachers and not emailing them.
The school is only a few students over minimum enrollment for the school. If they lose a few more then they will be shut down due to lack of funding. I believe this is the reason for not making waves with parents.
My GF was called for an interview at a school and offered the job at a much safer environment where the admin backs up their teachers. She planned on giving two weeks and if they demanded the 30 then speak then. She had another incident with a student trying to injure another student. She handled the incident brought it to the administrations attention and they dismissed it and said that it was fine. That there doesn't need to be any punishment. She told them then that she would have her things out by the end of the dayandthat she could not work in thatenvironment. She told them on the exit interview that she would not be paying the fee due to an unsafeenvironment; Today (6 days later) sent a letter demanding payment today.


My question is do you think there is any standing for a school that has an unsafeenvironment to fine the teacher for leaving?

Should this be brought to Department of Educations attention or would it be better to go to Department of Labor?

Just chalk it up as a lesson learned pay the fee be glad to be out of that situation into a new job and be happy that she is no longer there?

Talk to an employment lawyer and start paying him/her to get on the case?

P.S. no pics, can't have them floating around and make this identifiable.

EDIT: I edited the amount of money in title so that it would not be as identifiable.

Demand letter from previous tenant, respond?
Added on : Friday September 26th 2014 07:00:13 AM
g: 1 Posted By: sailinlight
Views: 56 Replies: 3 I had a tenant move out after going month-to-month after the expiration of their lease. About six months past into the month-to-month I gave them 30 days notice (per the lease, state law specifies 7 days) to move out since we decided to sell the house. Tenants were not happy about moving out, but things went relatively smoothly. Didn't do a formal move-out pre-inspection but I went over there to talk to the tenants and the place was a mess. They had three children and apparently didn't believe in discipline whatsoever. There were crayon and marker all over the walls, large and small holes in the drywall in many walls throughout the house, the kitchen was a mess, etc. They promised that everything would be fixed when the moved out. After move-out, the place was less of a disaster but not anywhere close to move-in ready. The drywall patches were extremely poorly done and required sanding and repainting, much of the marker on the walls didn't come out so required sanding and repainting.
Painting alone cost $800, plus there were other things like cleaning the oven, walls which didn't need repainting, grass needed reseeding where . They also owed about $500 in back rent for the first few weeks of the last month they were there which they didn't bother paying. Total security deposit was $1,000, and I withheld the other $500 for repairs/cleaning. I itemized charges well in excess of $500 and put a line at the bottom for goodwill negating the amount over what the security deposit would cover. They clearly weren't happy about this..
So yesterday I get a demand letter from an attorney asking for the $500 back or a lawsuit would be filed for triple the original security deposit. From reviews I found this law firm seems to handle mostly prepaid legal services, and the letter even said that further contact should be made directly with the former tenants, so I suspect the chances that they plan to retain the law firm for an actual suit is low, most likely if they do sue it would be in small claims I imagine.

How would you respond if at all? I am thinking one of these choices-
1) Ignore it and see if they sue
2) Respond back with the plethora of pictures I have (which I already sent with the original itemization) saying that I believe I was correct in withholding the deposit
3) Respond back stating that if a suit is filed, that I would counter-sue for the water damage they allowed to accrue in the basement, a bleach stain in the carpet which I didn't note in the original itemization because I didn't replace the carpet, dents in the refrigerator which was brand new, a new water heater to replace one that was working fine but they threatened to sue over stating all five of them couldn't take back to back showers and baths so the house was not fit for habitability, etc

I have no intention to pay them without a court order. They were the worst tenants I've ever had, called all the time for the most minor of things (they overloaded a GFI outlet once and made me come over to replace it because the sprinkler control box was on the outlet and said that if I didn't come fix it, they'd let the lawn die- all it needed was the reset button pressed), let the basement flood (then tried to complain about mold, which they also brought up in the demand letter) without notifying me for almost two days.

Thoughts? I promise to keep the thread updated for entertainment value (if there is any for anyone).

Zoom 5341J at Amazon for $59. Fantastic price for a DOCSIS 3.0 modem with a reputation for being workhorse.

I had a Motorola SB6121 that after 2 years started dropping signal several times a day. I read that this is fairly common for the SB6121 due to powersupply failing with time. I wanted the replacement to be different brand from motorolla and the Zoom has a great reputation going back decades to the dial up modem days. The Zoom been rock solid over the last month

As a side note, the 5341J is capable of bonding 8 down stream channels and 4 upstream channels for the few who need this (the older zoom 5341 without the "J" was a 4x4 modem). This makes the 5341J comparable to the motorolla SB6141 rather than the SB6121

Here is a discussion on comcast forums of the 5431J vs SB6121. They feel the 5431J to be a superior modem.

eBay and gift cards
Added on : Thursday September 25th 2014 07:00:10 AM
g: 0 Posted By: hpmax
Views: 25 Replies: 1 I was looking for prepaid gift cards on eBay. I noticed that there are several prepaid cards that are selling for slightly below face value, and some selling for significantly above face value (in one case, someone listed a $300 card for $480). I have trouble understanding this. If the card were stolen (or obtained illegally) you'd think the seller would want to get rid of it at a discount. If the person is buying it with a stolen card, why buy above face value. Heck, they could just go to Staples and buy one with a credit card (either online or in store) for only a few dollars over face value. Yes, people could be trying to use up coupons or reward points (or earn them), but not sure why someone would be willing to pay that much over face value. There was a thread about this a while ago, but I never was really satisfied with the answers.

There is also another phenomenon that strikes me as odd. People are selling prepaid cards they are claiming have no value on them. One person listed 10 visa prepaid cards for $50. Why would someone pay $50 for a few worthless cards? Are the buyer and seller in cahoots and somehow willing to absorb a 13% hit on the transaction? Seems remarkably stupid.

The Small Business Planning Guide For Professionals
http://www.amazon.com/Small-Business-Planning-Guide-Professional...

One of the most vital elements of our worlds economy is based on small businesses, usually a single owner and at most just a few employees providing vital services for their community.

Views: 195 Replies: 0 This is very similar to the popular deal posted a few days ago by MisterCheap. The TopCashBack portal no longer allows purchasing the Samsung Entro or another cheap phone to get $35 Cash Back. Thus, that thread has been sent to Expired Deals. However, the BeFrugal portal still has $35 Cash Back. Its list of phones allows the Entro, Kona, and many others. So, if you were busy this weekend and missed that offer, here's how to get this (and thanks to MisterCheap for his instructions that I've copied almost verbatim):

1. you must be a member of BeFrugal dot com (or join) go to their website FIRST

2. go to Virgin Mobilestore link on their site, click thru on $35 CB offer they have listed

3. Buy the $14.99 + tax for the SamsungEntro phone (ship it to yourself)

4. Get $35 back in CB within a week.

TopCashBack wrote several long-winded paragraphs that this deal is limited to one per person and should not be abused. BeFrugal has no such instructions. I'd guess there's a good possibility that Virgin Mobile may deny Cash Back for multiple phones sent to the same address recently but it's up to you if you want to try.

Starting a home-based business and registering DBA/FBN
Added on : Wednesday September 24th 2014 01:00:09 PM

Views: 17 Replies: 0 My friend (no, really) is starting a home-based business. She will make high end soap (not really, but close enough) in her home and sell it online or directly to friends and family. I'm helping out with the technology, finance, and business side of things. I have a few questions for the FWF gurus:

1) Insurance. In the highly unlikely event of someone getting a rash from using my friend's premium organic hypoallergenic soap and raising a stink as a result, my friend probably needs some kind of business liability protection or other separation from personal liability. Unfortunately she lives in CA, and I don't think its worthwhile to pay $800/yr minimum LLC tax, especially since she's just starting out. Would a Business Liability coverage (a few hundred K?) added to her Homeowner's Insurance policy suffice? Again, this is a cosmetic product with clearly listed ingredients, so I'm not even sure this is necessary.

2) Business name and location. Assuming she runs the business as a sole proprietorship, I think she needs to be able to accept payments in a name that isn't her own. I'm a also big proponent of personal privacy, so I want to find out if she can keep her home address out of public record. In order to make this happen, I think the following steps are required:
2.a) Get an EIN and a private mailbox (PMB). The PMB will be used for all business related communications.
2.b) Get a Doing Business As (DBA) or Fictitious Business Name (FBN) through her county (is this right, or can she get one elsewhere?)
2.c) Open a business checking account with the EIN+DBA/FBN registration.

Unfortunately, step 2.b requires the business owner to (1) provide the principal place of business on the registration form and (2) publish a notice in the newspaper, so this becomes public record (twice). What would / could happen if she listed the PMB as the principal place of business?

Sorry, no pics. "Soap" was not used as a euphemism.

Thanks in advance for any answers, advice, and suggestions.

We may even consider spending one extra day there.

Can I find a lower price for my flights ?

I have checked mostly Matrix, AA all carriers & Travelocity, going thru Toronto, Barcelona, Zurich, London, Amsterdam.
None of those seem to be as convenient.

Considerations For Buying A Primary Home In Cash - No Mortgage
Added on : Wednesday September 24th 2014 06:00:18 AM
g: 0 Posted By: robronson
Views: 109 Replies: 4 I've never owned a home, though I consider it as a possibility in the next few years. I'm a life long renter in my 30s and have always chosen to live in modest cost of living areas. My rent over the last 10 years since I left college has been no more than $1000 per month in any place I've lived, and typically in the $600/month range. I have no interest in living in a place like NYC, LA, SF, Seattle, and that's pertinent to this post because if I did want to live there, then this strategy would be impossible.

I've built a nice nest egg in the $300k range and am shooting for early retirement, roughly in the $700k to $1M range in late 30s, early 40s. Currently able to net and save around $100k per year after taxes/living expenses and if I can keep that up, I'm well on track.

One of the major reasons for me avoiding home ownership is the mortgage process in general. While it may seem like a routine thing for most, I have a stronger-than-most protection of my privacy, and the process of getting a mortgage, for me, in my mental state, falls somewhere in the middle between root canal and prison rape. No need to go into details of my psychological fears of showing a stranger my finances, employment, and credit history, because it's how I feel and strangers commenting on this post won't fix me.

Thus, if I want to own a home, I would almost certainly do so with "cash" (certified check or whatever). Most of the areas I want to live have really nice homes in the $150k to $200k range. Given I am netting $100k per year (after living expenses, to my savings account), I can save enough money for a house in 2 to 3 years.

If I can get the liquid cash to buy a home in 2 to 3 years of work, should I do it? Any downsides? The alternative isn't getting a mortgage because I won't get a mortgage. Discussions about opportunity cost for lack of tax credits from mortgage interest aren't applicable to my situation. My alternative is continuing to rent.

Rocksmith Original OR 2014 Steam Edition (PC/MAC) $15 or Less each
Added on : Tuesday September 23rd 2014 04:00:22 PM
g: 4 Posted By: quarky42
Views: 1057 Replies: 1 VERY IMPORTANT EDIT: I've discovered that GameTimeZone as wrong about their version being the 2014 version. As far as I can see GameTimeZone is selling the original Rocksmith and Mac Game Store is selling the 2014 version, which is great for me! I wanted both games on my PC! Information below is updated:

Get Rocksmith Original Steam Edition (withoutthe required USB cable) from GameTimeZonefor $15*.
*Use the coupon code: "twizz" (without quotes) during checkout for 5% off bringing to total to $14.25.

Get RockSmith 2014 Steam Edition (withouttherequiredUSB cable)fromMac Game Storefor $15.
Yes, they are called Mac Game Store, but this is for a Steam Powered Game which means it will work for PC or MAC.
(Credit:I discovered the Mac Game Store $15 deal thanks to this expiredthread.)

The newer 2014 version has more and better lessons. The Riff Repeater helps you study hard passages and helps you scale up the difficulty until you've mastered a hard section. If you were only going to get one, I would buy the 2014. Otherwise, check out a search on google for List of Rocksmith Tracks and another search for List of Rocksmith 2014 Tracks and choose based on music selection. (Or you could just buy both)

They will send you a code that you redeem in the Steam Client for the Rocksmith game you bought (original or 2014 depending on vendor). (This was even cheaper than the expired deal!) GameTimeZone did call me after I placed the order and asked me to verify my shipping address and confirm my email. After I did that they sent the code via email within a minute or two after hanging up. GameTimeZone told me that I would be getting the 2014 game. The picture on their website shows the 2014 version. The code I received activated the original Rocksmith game, which is fine by me, but please be aware so you get the one you want!

TIPS:
This version does NOT come with the required USB to 1/4" Guitar Cable. That cable can be found for $24 or less if you shop around. This deal is mainly intended for people that already have the cable and might be interested in getting the Steam version of this game. If you don't have the required cable, then consider buying the first game from a retail outlet which comes with the cable and buy this deal above to expand your tracks to well over 100. I don't think you can import the songs from the DVD version of the first one to the Steam version of the second one. RockSmith does not do cross-platform conversions at all. If you want the most songs for the least amount of money, then buy the cable separately and buy the Steam original RockSmith when it goes on sale next time. When RockSmith goes on sale, the older DLC tracks tend to go on sale too.

EXAMPLE INSTRUCTIONS AFTER PURCHASE:
1. You will have to install the Steam Client from SteamPowered.comand sign up for a free Steam Account through the client software. When you run the software for the first time you can sign up for an account in the software. (You can't sign up for an account on their website.)

2. Redeem the code that GameTimeZoneemailed to you after purchase in the installed Steam Client program. I believe you have to click the "+ ADD A GAME..." in the lower left corner of the Steam Client window. Next, you'll click "Activate A Product on Steam..." and follow the onscreen instructions using the code you bought from above to install the game.

I hope this has been helpful. Please give me some constructive feedback if I did something wrong or could do something better. (I've only posted a few times, so please be gentle, I'm just trying to help.)

RockSmith 2014 Steam Edition (PC/MAC) $15 or Less
Added on : Monday September 22nd 2014 12:00:04 PM
g: 1 Posted By: quarky42
Views: 95 Replies: 0 Thanks to the information I found this expired thread,I found out today that you can:

Get RockSmith 2014 Steam Edition (without required USB cable) from Mac Game Storefor $15.
Option:Use the code: "macgames5off" without quotes for an extra 5% off during checkout bringing the price down to $14.25.

They will send you a code that you redeem in Steam for the game. (This is even cheaper than the expired deal!) Yes, they are called Mac Game Store, but this is for a Steam Powered Game which means it will work for PC or MAC.

This is the PC/Mac version redeemed through Steam. This version does NOT come with the required USB to 1/4" Guitar Cable. That cable can be found for $24 or less if you shop around. This deal is mainly intended for people that already have the cable and might be interested in getting the Steam version of this game. If you don't have the game, then consider buying the first one which comes with the cable from a store and buy this one to expand your tracks to well over 100.

INSTRUCTIONS AFTER PURCHASE:
1. You will have to install the Steam Client from SteamPowered.comand sign up for a free Steam Account through the client software. When you run the software for the first time you can sign up for an account in the software. (You can't sign up for an account on their website.)

2. Redeem the code that Mac Game Storesent you in the installed Steam Client program. I believe you have to click the "+ ADD A GAME..." in the lower left corner of the Steam Client window. Next, you'll click "Activate A Product on Steam..." and follow the onscreen instructions using the code you bought from above to install the game.

TIPS:
You can find the original RockSmith game that comes with the cable for $34 on Google Shopping. Edit: I had to cut the tip down because the RockSmith Import License that lets 2014 import the earlier game tracks requires you to own RockSmith on Steam. I'm not sure if the PC version that you buy in the store is Steam Powered or not. I think it is, but I don't want to get your hopes up. I have seen the original RockSmith go on sale on Steam, before so you can get it for a deal in the future.

ALTERNATIVE SELLER:
I also found RockSmith 2014 Steam Version from GameTimeZonefor $15 with a 5% coupon code "twizz" (without quotes). The website shows a picture of 2014. The title and Paypal Checkout doesn't say 2014 in the name. When they call to verify your phone number, address and email address that you used during checkout I confirmed with the representative that this was for the 2014 version. They emailed me the code within a couple minutes after the phone call. I won't be able to redeem the code until I get home tonight.

I hope this has been helpful. Please give me some constructive feedback if I did something wrong or could do something better. (I've only posted a few times, so please be gentle, I'm just trying to help.)

Been lurking for a few weeks and really love the forums! Would anyone be able to help me, I am looking for a All Inclusive trip to Dominican Republic. Does anyone have personal experiences they would like to share pleasant or unpleasant when it comes to resorts?

I am going away with my girlfriend and the primary goal of this trip is to RELAX and eat. We prefer to book the all inclusives just so we dont have to worry about food when we get there but reading reviews it seems the food (at least in our price range) is always disappointing. We were using BookIt.com to find flight & Hotel packages under $2,000 and soon realized the price is never what it advertises as each screen click seems to add fees.

Does anyone have suggestions on how to sort through the extremely long list of destinations & resorts to find a deal that would suit us? Does anyone have experiences with a all inclusive that was relatively affordable and actually provided enjoyable food? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

The last few tidbits of information were correct. Now I was just told about two large companies that most people have heard of that are in the beginning stages of planning to bk. My source tells me this will go down in early '15.

Questions:

1) Can I profit and if so, how?

2) If I did attempt to profit, is this illegal activity?

Note to readers:- Please understand that this book is the result of about 30 years of meticulous and original work by the author. It is not possible to read the book once or even a few times and understand all of my work. To understand the work fully, would probably require a commitment equivalent to that of a targeted 3 year undergraduate course. The book is really just an introduction and covers the main aspects of my theory. For readers who desire to learn more about Fractal Computation Theory, I would recommend my new series detailing applications based on my Fractal Computation Theory such as the first book in the series about fractal vision. ( also free -http://www.amazon.com/Fractal-Vision-Part-1-Computation-ebook/dp...

This book is a collection of original, independent and ground-breaking pure research performed by the author in the field of artificial intelligence.

The author has successfully reverse-engineered natural language to unlock the secrets of the mind. These are put forward in a thesis and documented in precise detail in this book. The author has also invented multiple fractal computers, Patent Pending. These function in two dimensions, like the human mind, or any other higher dimension.

The thesis starts from first principles and builds these to form advanced concepts that can be used to create powerful fractal machines. The work encompasses learning contexts, expert contexts, fuzzy sets, spirals, double helix structures, sequencing, pairs, concurrence, interfaces, transformation and normalization. How do all of these combine to form intelligent machines? You will need to read the book.

Revised and expanded edition!
We all want to include emotion in our photographs - it's what separates the "snapshooter" from the artist!

Color is one of - if not THE most important tool we can use to insert emotion. But few of us really know how.
Once you've read through this lesson (it's fast and easy) you will never think of color the same again!

For example... we all know that red is a good accent to attract attention. It can also indicate heat, passion or even stop! But there is more, a lot more.

Learn how Baboon Butts affect the way we look at the color red!

Depending on the shade of red used it could elicit emotions like:

Light red - represents joy, sexuality, passion, sensitivity, and love.
Pink - signifies romance, love, and friendship. It denotes feminine qualities and passiveness.
Dark red - is associated with vigor, willpower, rage, anger, leadership, courage, longing, malice, and wrath.
Reddish-brown is associated with harvest and fall.

Views: 131 Replies: 2 I came across this article (I am not the person who wrote it). I wanted to get the opinion the FW's regarding this way of paying your bills. Sounds quite interesting. Here is a piece of the article and (because of copyright issues) I give you the link where the article continues:

Well, I stopped using greenbacks for the most part. This is how. There is an organization in my state called UPMA and they convert my FRN into gold and allow me to spend it in any denomination that I want. They can legally do that because Utah has reauthorized gold and silver as legal tender. Let me explain how it works.Every month I deposit over $1,000 of Federal Reserve Notes into my United Precious Metals Association account and those are converted into "U.S Treasury" Golden dollars. $50 gold dollars is the face value of one ounce of gold so one gold cent is worth about a quarter. My $1,000 from work turns into about $43 in gold.With this account I can pay people and businesses directly in gold. I can withdraw gold in denominations of $50 (or one golden eagle). Chase bank and Discover accept gold payments. So do hundreds of other merchants. I can pay everything with gold and for the services where they don't accept it I can use a credit card and pay that off with gold. What this does is that it turns the money that I use everyday back into gold. Gold is money when it is used as money. It is an asset when it sits around. To open an account or to check out the details I recommend going to their website. The Attorney General of Utah has thrown his weight behind this. It has been really great. You can use it out-of-state and you can even use it to pay merchants that want FRNs without much of a penalty. You need to login to read the user agreement. That is where many of the details are regarding costs and whatnot.If you make 10 or fewer transactions and hold less than $50 in gold and make no more than 1 transaction from gold dollars to FRNs then it is a free account. The fees a very reasonable. For example, it costs 10 gold cents (like $2.50) as a service fee if you have more than $50 in your account.

Free $25 for signing up for failing UFC casino
Added on : Sunday September 21st 2014 09:00:07 AM

Views: 134 Replies: 1 Not a survey exactly, but you fill out a simple registration form and you'll wind up getting a $25 check mailed to you in a few weeks. NJ regulated casino Ultimate Casino is closing its doors soon. You can use this opportunity to get a $25 by signing up and then withdrawing.

How does it work?

- Ultimate Casino awards 25 "U-Dollars" for every new, verified signup as a promotion. For whatever reason, the promotion is still going even though they are closing.
- Ordinarily you can only use U-Dollars to wager with, and you can only wager if you are in New Jersey.
- Even though you can't use it, Ultimate Casino's system will give you the 25 promotional dollars without you being in New Jersey. Ordinarily, it would expire after being unused for a certain period of time.
- Because they are closing their doors, all promotional currency will be exchanged for equivalent USD on request.
- After it's exchanged, request a cashout, and they will mail you $25.
- The site is regulated by Nevada & New Jersey and will still be in business in Nevada, so it's unlikely they will be unable to not pay.

This means anyone, whether they are in NJ or not, can claim the free $25. It's a little bit more of a pain if you are not in the US.

You will have to sign up and give your SSN (to prove you are over 21) along with verifying a mobile phone and email address.

Sign up by going to https://games.ucasino.com/portal/win32/player/registration/ or https://games.ucasino.com/portal and choosing Sign In & then Register.

- Use your real SSN and real address. Their system will use this to verify you are over 21.
- Use your real mobile phone. You will have to respond to a text they send you with "YES".
- You'll also have to click the link they send you in an email.

After your account is reads Age/ID, Email, and Mobile Phone verified (you don't need New Jersey Location Verification), you will get 25 U Dollars in your account within about 15 minutes. U Casino is ceasing play midnight Sunday. After tomorow, email or chat into support and request your U Dollars be converted to USD and cash it out.

Not everyone will get ID verified automatically on signup, including no one outside the US. Those people can still try to get the free $25, but they'll have to manually send proof of ID to customer support and hope it's approved.

4.5 out of 5 stars (56 customer reviews)

Former Navy rescue swimmer Brian Dickinson was roughly 1,000 feet from the summit of Mount Everestalso known as the death zonewhen his Sherpa became ill and had to turn back, leaving Brian with a difficult decision: should he continue to push for the summit, or head back down the mountain? After carefully weighing the options, Brian decided to continue toward the summitalone. Four hours later, Brian solo summited the highest peak in the world. But the celebration was short-lived. After taking a few pictures, Brian radioed his team to let them know he had summited safely, and got ready to begin his descent. Suddenly, his vision became blurry, his eyes started to burn, and within seconds, he was rendered almost completely blind. All alone at 29,035 feet, low on oxygen, and stricken with snow blindness, Brian was forced to inch his way back down the mountain relying only on his Navy survival training, his gut instinct, and his faith. In Blind Descent, Brian recountsin fantastic detailhis extraordinary experience on Everest, demonstrating that no matter how dire our circumstances, there is no challenge too big for God.

Views: 16 Replies: 0 I'm posting lots recently, apologies.

My brother really struggles to appreciate risk, I would say I'm overly optimistic but he would literally bet everything on a 100/1 shot.

2 examples:

1/Stocks, a friend of his showed him this AIM (think pink sheets) company in the UK, the friend told him it was risky, my bro apparently read up on it lots but it seems that he tuned out all the bad stuff and just reinforced the good stuff. I think he then convinced himself that it was a certainty to x5 and so he put a significant amount of money into it for him (i.e. all savings and few thousand from wages - he is young tho so savings weren't much and he has no dependents). The stock IS NOW basically worthless.

2/He has been working at a shitty startup for a while, he doesn't like it, he gets paid terribly but becos there is this carrot of 'IPO' one day he stays there. Even though he has very few shares, he has no idea how many shares there are in existence and his boss has proven time and time again that he can't be trusted. He should leave but he dreams of the $$$ from the IPO.

He just doesn't seem to appreciate how low the lows from something bad happening are and can only imagine the upside. Anyone have any ideas how I can get him to change?

Learn SQL Server 2012 professional database design fast. Practical relational database design teach-by-practical-diagrams-&-examples book for developers, programmers, systems analysts, IT managers and project managers who are new to relational database and client/server technologies. Also for database developers, database designers and database administrators (DBA), who know some database design, and who wish to refresh & expand their RDBMS design technology horizons. Familiarity with at least one computer programming language such as Visual Basic, Windows file system & Excel is assumed. Since the book is career advancement oriented, it has a great number of 3NF database design examples with metadata explanations along with practical SQL queries (over 400 SELECT queries) and T-SQL scripts, plenty to learn indeed. Great emphasis is placed on explaining the FOREIGN KEY - PRIMARY KEY constraints among tables, the connections which make the collection of individual tables a database. The database diagrams and queries are based on historic and current SQL Server sample databases: pubs (PRIMARY KEYs 9, FOREIGN KEYs 10) , Northwind (PRIMARY KEYs 13, FOREIGN KEYs 13) and the latest AdventureWorks series. Among them: AdventureWorks, AdventureWorks2008, AdventureWorks2012 (PRIMARY KEYs 71, FOREIGN KEYs 90), & AdventureWorksDW2012 (PRIMARY KEYs 27, FOREIGN KEYs 44). The last one is a data warehouse database which is the basis for multi-dimensional OLAP cubes. The book teaches through vivid database diagrams and T-SQL queries how to think in terms of sets at a very high level, focusing on set-based operations instead of loops like in procedural programming languages. The best way to master relational database design & T-SQL programming is to type the query in your own SQL Server Management Studio Query Editor, test it, examine it, change it and study it. Wouldn't it be easier just to copy & paste it? It would, but the learning value would diminish rapidly. You need to feel relational database design and the SQL language in your DNA. SQL queries, "CREATE TABLEs" must "pour" out from your fingers into the keyboard. Why is knowing SQL queries by heart so important? After all everything can be found on the web so why not just copy & paste? Well not exactly. If you want to be an database designer expert, it has to be in your head not on the web. Second, when your supervisor is looking over your shoulder, "Chuck, can you create a new table for our electric pumps inventory?", you have to be able to type the CREATE TABLE query without documentation or SQL forum search and explain how it will work to your superior promptly. The book was designed to be readable in any environment, even on the beach laptop around or no laptop in sight at all. All queries are followed by results row count and /or full/partial results listing in tabular (grid) format. Screenshots are used when dealing with GUI tools such as SQL Server Management Studio. Mastery of the relational database design book likely to be sufficient for career advancement as a database designer and database developer.
Database design principles did not change much since the inception of RDBS technology in the 1970-s. Yet there are many IT installations with faulty database design which is very costly to the company. Good database design increases reliability, decreases development time and maintenance cost.

A Gentle Introduction to Computer Programming Fundamentals
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ECI0D0S/

Programming is fast becoming a basic literacy. Software is pervasive in society and therefore it is needed in virtually every occupation. But for some people, programming feels very unnatural; that's where this book comes in! This book is written in a step-by-step, tutorial style that makes programming available to pretty much anyone who cares to take the time to learn. It's the result of my years of experience and research into teaching introductory programming. In addition, I've used versions of this book in my distance education programming classes for years, which has given me the advantage of optimizing it based on student comments and suggestions.

You can start using this book right away, without buying anything else and without having to install anything on your computer! Within a few days, you will understand the basics of how computer programs work.
C++ is used in this textbook because the syntax is almost exactly the same as C, Java, Javascript, PHP and many other popular programming languages. If you master the concepts in this book, they will transfer to many other languages. In addition, C++ does not require a lot of "scaffolding" to set up. For example, Java requires understanding classes right from the beginning, and PHP requires understanding html. With C++, you start with four standard lines at the top of your program, and you're into the program. Note that I really like Java and PHP, and write in these languages myself quite often; however, for a basic introduction to programming, C++ is the way to go!
When you're finished with this book, the world of programming wil


Designing Embedded Systems: Guidebook
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JMIMFM2

This Guidebook reviews the Software Development and Engineering Principles involved in the Design of Embedded Computer Systems.

The reason behind developing this book can be answered by the following question. What does an embedded software engineer produce? Now most people would say 'prototypes' and this might seem like the correct answer but it is not. The correct answer is that the engineer produces documentation, documentation that shows other people how to understand and build the product.

Now imagine that you are a software engineer who has newly joined the company and you have been given the unenviable task of maintaining an existing product. Why was this work given to the new guy? The answer is that no one else in the company wanted to tackle this project. Why? Because there is no documentation. So to figure out what the product does and to fix the bugs the new guy (or gal) has to reverse-engineer the source code. So the money that management thought they saved when some code was quickly thrown together by a software engineer (who has since left the company) they now find that several times more is being spent to fix up all the bugs and possibly add on some minor enhancement.
This type of problem occurs when there is no development procedure.
Which brings us to the Guidebook.
The Guidebook provides a standard procedure which may be used by the Systems, Software, Embedded, Firmware and Hardware departments. Various design and development documents are produced at specific points in the project and are passed out for review prior to being used by other team members. By having this consistency the entire team now know which design elements will be produced and the need for implementing any reverse-engineering will be eliminated. Product costs for maintenance will be greatly reduced. Manufacturing and Test departments will now have the necessary details with which to complete their work. For shouldn't the designers who intuitively understand the product be the ones to write down their knowledge such that it can be passed on to others?
By presenting these steps in the form of a Guidebook which is distributed to the engineering team, it then identifies the documents that are to be generated, when they should be produced, who should create them and who should be involved in the review process. This keeps the entire team synchronized, fully aware of their responsibilities.
Now some companies do have such procedures but they are long-winded and stored away in some unknown location on a harddrive.
But a bright red Guidebook that clearly spells out the development process.
Now wouldn't that be worth having?

With Ashampoo GetBack Photo the loss of digital photos doesnt have to be permanent. The program enables the quick recovery of photos from different storage devices in just a few steps. In contrast to many conventional undeleter programs, Ashampoo GetBack Photo recovers not only photos that were deleted normally, but also images from storage devices that have already been formatted.

Views: 43 Replies: 0 Here is a list of NYS municipal bonds funds from BlackRock: http://www.blackrock.com/investing/products/product-list#categor...

They have similar funds for other states and national. The NY funds invest in bonds "exempt from federal income taxes (including the alternative minimum tax) and New York State and New York City personal income" which could be 40-50% for high-income earners. Currently, they are selling at 10% discount to net-asset value (NAV) which means you're paying 10% less than buying the bonds individually. I've looked into some of the underlying bonds and they seem to be trading at roughly 10% premium to par value so with the bond fund you're entering at roughly par value. The default rates are exceedingly low.

Over the last 10 years, when including dividends/distributions, these funds have performed similarly to S&P and Dow indexes: http://stockcharts.com/freecharts/perf.php?$INDU,SPY,MHN
The graph doesn't include taxes, so after taxes, the net gain is quite similar. At some points, the gains have far outpaced the stocks which might be in the cards for the near future if there's a correction in the stock market after the last few years of significant gains.

With the fed meeting tomorrow, I expect there might be a big spike up or down depending on the outcome. Despite the short-term volatility, I think long-term that the bonds will converge towards par-value and the fund will converge towards NAV which is essentially leads us to the same prices at present. Even without price/capital appreciation, the ~6% yield equivalent to 10% taxable yield is far better than any savings account at present or anytime in the near future. Depending on your thoughts about what the fed report might entail, you may prefer to invest now or after the meeting tomorrow when the dust settles.

Views: 46 Replies: 3 A few years ago I had an account with ING direct, and they offered no load, no fee, index funds.
Recently this company has been sold to capital one, and I just noticed they now charge $19.95 for each trade of mutual funds. I have not been able to find any mutual funds which is both no load AND no fees anymore.
Does any fatwallet'er out there know of any company offering truly no cost, mutual funds?

This is a thread that lists all of the Master Threads, Topic FAQ Threads, Large Guide Threads, etc. on FWF in one place (the Quick Summary).

Anybody can add a Master/FAQ/Guide/etc. thread to the Quick Summary presuming it fits with the spirit of being a Master, FAQ, Large Guide, etc. and it's listed in an appropriate category in the quick summary. How we define that may not be exact, but like the Supreme Court we may know it when we sit it.Typically that often means some combination of:
1) A broader subject matter (loading the quick summary with each deal/bank/etc. thread probably overkill)
2) Maybe a decent amount of Q&A
3) Subject matter has broad utility to numerous members as opposed to few or the one who created the thread

Question Regarding Rental Income Interest Deduction
Added on : Monday September 15th 2014 02:00:07 AM
g: 0 Posted By: SoonerThanLater
Views: 27 Replies: 0 Hi All,

I've searched and really couldn't find anything about this. We've been renting out our old house for a few years now. We owe about $75k on it and we're thinking about refinancing down to 15 years. However, I was also thinking about just pulling the money out of a 401k and paying it off. I could save on closing costs and other fees. I know the pros and cons to each but I am just wondering how much I would be losing by forgoing the interest deduction???

If I refinance, I'll be paying about $2600 a year in interest. I am normally at the break even point on the rental. Does anyone know how much I will be giving up in "real dollars" when I file my taxes if I don't have that interest??? I know everyone's tax bracket is different but I am just looking for a ballpark to see if this will be worthwhile. I don't like paying interest but if I am getting everything back, that's different. However, I know that's not the case...

I welcome your input. Thanks all!

WalMart Savings Catcher
Added on : Friday September 12th 2014 04:00:09 PM
g: 1 Posted By: juniorjam
Views: 144 Replies: 6 In case you didn't know (I can't believe there's not a substantive topic on this), WalMart has a SavingsCatcher program.After purchasing items, they use a 3rd party service to see if local stores (to you) offer lower prices. If they do, you get the difference on a WalMart gift card. You can let it accumulate, or cash it out on a gift card immediately.

I get all of my groceries from Wally World and used it about a week ago. I spent $120.76, set up an account on their website (WalMart.com/savingscatcher),and entered my receipt number when I got home. After a few days, I got back $4.25 (3.5%).

You can enter receipts for the last 7 days. You can earn up to$599.99 per year. Their FAQ is worth reading and is here: https://savingscatcher.walmart.com/faq.

Considering a lot of people (myself included) fight for an extra percent or two on reward cardsfor groceries, this is pretty freaking awesome. I submitted my second receipt tonight. We'll see if it's at the 3.5% mark. This is especially awesome sincemy WalMart is already noticeablycheaper than all of my local grocery competitors.

Good luck!

Business partnership ending and I got bad vibes, how to handle?
Added on : Friday September 12th 2014 03:00:08 PM
g: 0 Posted By: MightySlacker
Views: 70 Replies: 0 This is in the state of Ohio for reference. Some parts need to be left vague, but hopefully I can get in all pertinents.

A few years ago, my girlfriend and I decided to catering and concessions at a certain venue. It was a place I had worked 5 years before that and we did some unofficial food stuff for smaller events, and when the opening happened to take care of everything food related we took it. The management of the venue were friends and wanted to do a partnership, which appealed to use because we didn't have the capital to go all in by ourselves.

The management purchased the existing catering and concession equipment for X amount, for which we paid half (3 installments that year) and were to own half (we formed a LLC). Our agreement was that my girlfriend and I would get X per hour, and then split the profits at the end of each year. What ended up happening is that the venue ran a food "tab" for its workers which we kept track of, and then deducted that from the profits. 2 years out of the 4 the tab exceeded what their profits would be and money was sent our way.

This year, we moved because I got a job promotion and we decided we could not take care of the business at a level we were accustomed to providing. We jointly decided to try and lease the operations to some people and if they were able to handle it we would be bought out of our half. Unfortunately, the management was fired and replaced in a particularly nasty incident(s). I had talked to them afterwards and the response was just to sell everything.

I went to go look at things last weekend and did not like what I saw. Several items belonging to the business that were not stored with the concession stand(s)/truck(s) were gone, even a couple of propane tanks for one of the stands (which were locked) are gone. The management had pretty much taken everything of theirs not nailed down, but did not think that would include our items. There was a new temporary food person that had said he had briefly talked to previous management but was only interested in some of the equipment, not all of it. I have attempted to contact the previous management multiple times with absolutely no response. My spider sense is tingling.

I'm not really sure what my recourse should be to collect my "half" if things go south. The paperwork is all in the managements name, I just have a bill of sale and my checks whcih are clearly noted to be payments for half of the equipment. The management is in some hot water over multiple shady things that were uncovered, so my complaint would be a drop in the bucket. I don't think i can take them to small claims because they'd just hide behind the business name. I am friendly with the new venue management while the old management isnt even allowed on the property, so I guess I could pillage whats left or hold something for ransom, but I certainly think that would be a last resort kind of option. Any advice on how to proceed?

Shelter Insurance Junior Special Policy- revisited from 2012
Added on : Friday September 12th 2014 12:00:09 PM
g: 0 Posted By: srhullender
Views: 149 Replies: 1 http://www.fullofdeals.com/forums/finance/1245931/

I stumbled across this post/thread/forum after doing a search on childlifeinsurancepolicies and wanted to comment.
A lot of misconception in this thread. A LOT! To touch on a few that really were way off track are as follows:

This is from the 1st posting...

"Let's take this slowly ...
1. Child life insurance does not help make sure children will be insurable in the future.
yes, it actually does. by buying a policy which carries "Guraranteed Insurability", the child will be able to purchase life insurance, regardless of health, in the future.
2. Child life insurance does help make sure children will be able to purchase from a limited set of adult product options.
True.
3. Those are typically awful products at awful prices.
Permanent Life Insurance is most defianltey applicable ina lot ofsituations.
4. Even where they are not awful products today, they almost certainly will be awful compared to more contemporary products offered 20 years from now.
FALSE! Waitng for those "future products" to "possibly" be more viable is rediculous to say. Plus, its not like we can erase time (as of yet, for you future dwellers lol). Hoping/praying for better products in the future designedto help protect our net worth will be useless unless you start now.
5. If truly uninsurable, those grown children will not be insurable.
What? This made as much sense as this entire post...
6. They will only have the ability to exercise the option to purchase the agreed upon product.
Exactly what its designed to do. And this is a bad thing?I'm actually kind of shocked by this display of pure ignorance. Every one of the posts in this thread are single minded. Let me start with a story...I have this client, we will call him Brian. He is a 39yo married man with a 1 year old. When I met Brian he was 29 and extremely active with his job. He is a risk assessor for a huge dot.com company. Anyway, I had found out shortly after I met Brian that he had Type 1 diabetes. Now Brian had not done such a great job over the years of treating his diabetes from when he was diagnosed at 16.
Soon after we became friends Brians diabetes got worse. He eventually had to have a kidney/pancreas transplant.Why am I bringing up Brian? Because Brian is one of millions who have Type 1 diabetes. (We arent even talking about any other disease or illness that can cause someone to be uninsuranble.) And Brian is one of millions who is 100% uninsurable. And if he were to find an insurance company who would write a policy on him (which to this date I cannot find), the cost would be so exorbitant that not even the examples above would hold a candle to it.When you can buy a policy for your child that A) doesn't have a continuous premium payment, B) Offers some sort of death benefit and C) offers a Guaranteed Insurability Rider which allows your child to purchase additional amounts later in life, regardless of health.... You are WINNING!

And trust me.Regardless of what products are out in 20, 30, or 40 years down the road or what this insurance is worth that far in the future. If Brian or any one of the millions of people out there were able to buy ANY amount or level of life insurance....they would buy it in a heartbeat! Ragardless of cost or death benefit.

I would say to all of the people who posted in this thread. "Stop being so cheap and actually buy something worth a darn for your kids. How many Wii, Nintendos, Atari, etc have you wasted on your kid already? Trying to tell me $240 is that much of a waste to benefit over a game system or any other crap you splurge on your kids with?" zzzzzzz

Car Keyed - Any Experiences/What To Expect From Insurance
Added on : Friday September 12th 2014 02:00:06 AM
g: 0 Posted By: Mr0ffic3r
Views: 60 Replies: 3 My car was keyed either yesterday at work or the day before at night. I noticed it yesterday when I got home from work. I am in communication with Security at my work and they are checking into the video feeds to see if they can find anything.

I have a 2000 BMW 5 series with 260k miles - I do have full coverage.

It was keyed on the driver side from the front headlight all the way back to near the tail lights - I'll post pics later.

What is involved in repairing this? From what I see on a quick Google search, they will basically have to repaint 1/2 my car? Anyone have any personal experience with this? Am I wasting my time with even calling the insurance company being that my car is almost 15 years old and over 1/4 million miles? I maintain my car religiously, it's in top notch mechanical and eye candy condition. That being said, I'd be surprised if it's worth $5k on the market, although it's worth more than that to me.

Even though my car is in great condition for it's age and mileage, it's not perfect. There are a few scuff marks here (not noticeable unless you really look, couple <5mm rock chips on hood, etc., and there but nothing like a the deep scratch that you can easily feel where it was keyed - that runs along the side entire side of the vehicle.

Thoughts?

Views: 77 Replies: 1 It seems these types of independent linked-card cash-back programs (there's an industry term for it, but I can't recall it) just can't stay in business as Plink has ceased operation today without any advance warning. As you might expect, any un-redeemed points are worthless now. Per Plink.com:
Plink.com said: To Our Loyal Plink Members

With much sadness and heavy hearts, we are sorry to tell you that Plink is closing its doors. As of today, the Plink site will be shut down and the program will cease to function.

As a start-up, we are reliant on continued funding and over the last year we have been unable to secure any additional funding. Unfortunately, without that funding, Plink can no longer continue to operate. As a team, we did everything we could to keep Plink alive, but we have now run out of time and options.

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our loyal members who have supported us for the last three years. As a team, we want to thank all of our members, for their loyalty and continuing to stick with us to the end. We couldn't have made it this far without such a loyal, committed group of members.

We also want to thank all of our advertisers and partners who supported us over the last three years. It was their belief in us and willingness to support a small start-up that allowed Plink to grow. We are proud to have partnered with some of the largest restaurant and retail brands in the United States.

Moving forward, all Plink accounts will be closed. No further points can be redeemed.

Thanks to all from the Plink Team.

Any further questions can be directed to support@plink.com.

300$ BOA - 5 Payment
1500$ Discover - 1 Payment

I know most answers would be just stick it through and build history but i dont really have time right now, my house is worth 350,000$ and its fully paid, i only want to take 250,000$ in a line of credit intrest only for 10/20 term about 60-75% LTV
I have tax returns support my income from 2013-2012 showing a up trend and an avg of 4000$ net for the 24 months.
I already have quite a few inqurys so i dont want to just go and run my luck and apply for many CU and bank and they all have the same answer we cant tell you until you run an application
Currently on my eye sight i got Suntrust bank and PNC Bank

my brother just added me as an authrized user he has over 2 years of on time payment with BOA but its been 2 months already i got the card in the mail but its still now showing on my report probably because the address is diffrent but they opened a ticket and investigating, i know underwritiers wont look at authrized users but most automatied systems will probably just reject me on the spot with oldest account 7 months old.

Anyway if anybody knows the best places with the most easy requerments i should apply at some local Credit unions or something please advise.

The starting price of each Qualifying Listing must not exceed the price guidance throughout the duration of the listing. Seller must not specify a reserve price on their listing. Fixed price format listings are not allowed. No guarantee is made that any item will sell at a particular price, or at all. If the seller creates a Qualifying Listing but his/her cell phone does not sell at all, then that seller will receive a $100 coupon towards his/her next eBay purchase. Coupons will be fulfilled approximately seven (7) to ten (10) business days after the end of the unsold Qualifying Listing, and must be redeemed by the seller within fourteen (14) days of receipt.

Only 5, 7, and 10 day listing durations in an auction-style or auction-style plus Buy It Now format are included in this Promotion (but may be subject to the listing upgrade fee). 1 and 3 day listing durations, as well as any fixed price format listing durations, are excluded from this Promotion.

Listings that contain any of the foregoing will be disqualified from the Promotion.

NJ neighbourhoods / considerations of moving to suburbs
Added on : Thursday September 11th 2014 06:00:18 AM
g: 0 Posted By: newnorley
Views: 80 Replies: 5 Yo FWF'ers can you recommend some NJ suburbs for commuting to Manhattan from. I'm looking to rent a 2 or 3 bedroom place and want to get the most bang for my buck. Posting this here because I find a lot of people on here have a similar attitude to me and I've no idea on NJ or where to start looking and you guys can help me not ripped off. I'm presuming there are a fair few people on here commuting from NJ - NYC.

Don't want to spend more than $2k per month on rent (could spend more but my motivation of moving to suburbs is to save money)
Want to commute by train and spend no more than 45 mins on train
Want to be able to walk to train station 15 min walk ok
Don't care about school zone
Quieter neighboorhood preferred
If possible in my price range I would love to be near an area with a 'downtown' and / or park accessible on foot ( I detest driving in NJ)
Old house OK
Don't care about how cool an area is
I'm not sure if these areas exist but in England I used to live in a fairly middle class / lower middle class area but there was a decent sense of community and people took pride in where they live i.e. didn't shit on their own doorstep / would love something similar
---

What other financial considerations do I need to think of moving to NJ burbs ? When I move to burbs I'm going to sell where I live now and start renting so I will not have the mortgage tax credit when filing in 2016 (current HHI $200k) but I spend $500 a month on condo fees and $8k a year on real estate taxes so I'm thinking they will cancel each other out.

Train will cost a couple of hundred a month i suppose.

Selling my condo I'm going to get stung by broker fees

Thanks

Views: 61 Replies: 3 Interested in people's thoughts on Apple's new payment system:
http://www.apple.com/apple-pay/

Given the Target and Home Depot hacks, I find this part especially interesting:
Apple said: With Apple Pay, instead of using your actual credit and debit card numbers when you add your card, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element, a dedicated chip in iPhone and Apple Watch. These numbers are never stored on Apple servers. And when you make a purchase, the Device Account Number alongside a transaction-specific dynamic security code is used to process your payment. So your actual credit or debit card numbers are never shared with merchants or transmitted with payment.
Curious how people think this will work. Apple claims they aren't tracking purchases in any way, so are the unique account numbers being setup directly by the respective banks? Basically, Apple got all these banks to setup a virtual credit card number API for them? Thoughts on if this is really more secure? Does it matter?

This also just seems like a good way to organize credit cards. I tried to use Google Wallet a while back, but never really got it to work well. I'm hoping Apple has the drive to really push this to be universal. Looks like they have most of my banks supported already, with a few more to come. Though I guess missing Discover is a big gap for some here.

In-app purchases is another interesting facet. Especially with something like OpenTable to pay at a restaurant without having to give them your card.

Free Kindle Book- The Hunter's Hound: Training Your Dog To The Rifle

Let say, before you start to read, that there are far better dog trainers about than me. Yet I have met few shooting men or women that have taken the time to ensure that the hound at their side is trained to perform in their own personal best interest or trained the dog to mirror their own personality. When I broke the rules to put a chasing dog at my side and then teach it not to chase, many folk frowned. Ten years on, many of those same folk look on enviously at the complete symbiosis achieved by a man, an air rifle and a scruffy old lurcher. This book therefore, is not intended as a manual on training an obedience champion. It is a common-sense approach to producing a dog which behaves around a rifle ... any rifle ... and a rifleman or woman who behaves around a disciplined dog. Yes, in many ways, this book is about training the hunter ... not just the hound.

Legal Advice required on a Beauty pageant contest result !!!
Added on : Sunday September 07th 2014 08:00:16 AM
g: -3 Posted By: superdeltap3
Views: 74 Replies: 3 Hi Friends,

My Apologies if this is the wrong forum, a little advice would be greatly appreciated. My daughter has recently participated in a Mrs Bollywood pageant contest (Indian Beauty contest for Married women). The contest theme was good however I was amazed by Favoritism shown by Judges and Organizers.

Few historical points :
1) Main Judges were: Event sponsors and 2 celebrities (un-Biased), 12 contestants and 5 Judges overall.
2) Only 3 Judges (Makeup, Costume and Jewelry sponsors) gave rating for selecting top 5 and celebrity Judges were not present to rate of Top 5 candidates.
3) It was optional to buy Makeup and Costumes from sponsors, contestant have to get (buy) their own Makeup and Jewelries.
4) Two of the contestants were from Sponsors family.
5) 5 suplimentary awards were given away.

Results were as follows:
1) Contestants who did not gave any business to Sponsors (Makeup for $150 and costumes for $450), did not make it to top 5.
2) Both contestant from Sponsors family, made it to top 5.
3) Beauty Salon gave a complimentary gift of $500(Best Skin) to one of the contestant, I came to know latter that she was a regular customer and a good friend of Salon Owner and it was done to promote Beauty Salon's business.
4) Both contestant from Sponsors family, received complimentary awards as well.

I am contemplating of putting a legal case against Event Judges (Sponsors) and Organizers to stop this culture of Favoritism and save innocent womens from all this suffering. I need some guidance on
1) How can I proceed with this? To keep the cost minimum.
2) What all proof do I have to collect?
3) What points do I have to prove?

Pension Cashout? Transfer to IRA? or Let it ride?
Added on : Saturday September 06th 2014 12:00:06 PM
g: 0 Posted By: pensioncashout
Views: 2 Replies: 0 Hi forum,

Thanks in advance for your thoughts. I worked for a company for 5 years and qualify for a pension. The amount of my cash out offer is not a huge amount ($16K), but given that I'm only 35, I know I'll subjected to a 10% early penalty fee plus taxes unless I roll-it-over to an IRA or let it ride to retirement age. If I wait until full retirement age, my monthly payment will be about $460 and it includes a 100% joint survivor clause. At today's dollars, assuming inflation of 2.5%, that cuts the monthly payment by ~50%, which isn't a whole lot.

A few additional details:

401K - $320K in mine $100K in my wife's (she's 31)
Liquidity - $185K
Equity in home currently being built - $250K
No credit card debt
No other debts except for some school loans my wife has ($30K) at very low interest rates


I'm in a situation that I don't need the money now, but as we're building a home, I'm tempted to rollover the pension lump sum to an IRA and decrease my 401K contributions to the minimum required to maximize my company's match in order to "recover" the full lump sum amount. Once the construction of the home is completed (6 to 8 months), we're going to refinance the home to a permanent loan. I'll likely keep about $100K in liquidity for emergencies (I'm conservative) and that will leave ~$85K liquidity to use + savings growth from lower 401K contributions + organic savings until then to further reduce the amount we need to borrow. Assuming today's interest rates don't change much, the lump sump would essentially get me a guaranteed effective 4%+ growth since I'd be using it to reduce my home loan amount. Am I looking at this right? What would you do in my situation? Pension Cashout? Transfer to IRA? or Let it ride? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

My annual income is roughly $50k, 25 years old. I have maxed out my Roth IRA for the last five years since I learned about the magic of compounding interest. Nothing fancy, just a basic boglehead portfolio. I also have a personal brokerage account valued at ~$45k. I have an adequate liquid emergency fund set aside as well as access to cheap credit if needed. No other debts currently.

I have ~$35k that I would like to get into the market, but I am trying to think of a smarter way of going about this rather than just sticking it into my taxable brokerage account. My first thought was to see if my employer (State of Texas) allowed me to contribute outside money to their 401k program.. sadly, they do not. I've been researching for a while and have come across a few interesting ideas for folks with much higher incomes, but nothing that seems applicable to me. How can I be savvy about the type of account I use to invest this money in order to see some sort of tax benefit? Is it enough to even worry with?

Thanks!

tl;dr: 25 y/o, $50k income, no debts to pay down, Roth IRA maxed, 401k not looking like an option, how to invest $35k in a "tax smart" manner?

Rental lease terms advice_Massachusetts
Added on : Friday September 05th 2014 10:00:09 AM
g: 0 Posted By: spinkan
Views: 97 Replies: 4 I have a few questions regarding my lease agreement and what my options are in that regard. Here's the story: I recently moved into a new apartment in Massachusetts (about a month ago). Per the conditions of the lease, all utilities are included (i.e., heat, hot water, gas for cooking, and electric) for $900/mo. However, I received a phone call from the realtor this afternoon stating that there was "human error" when the lease was written and, in fact, my building does not include electric in the rent. There are four total buildings in the complex and, according to the realtor, my building and the adjacent building have a meter and thus, require the tenants to pay electric separately. In the lease under "Heat and Other Utilities," it specifically states (with two asterisks), "**Heat, Hot Water, Gas for cooking, & Electric is included in rent." Aside from this column, it notes, "Tenant: This section governs utility payments. Be sure to discuss with the Lessor those payments which will be required of you for this payment." Attached to the lease in an "Addendum to Lease Agreement" which also states, "Utilities and Services. Tenant shall be responsible for phone, & cable. Landlord will provide the following: Heat, gas stove cooking, electric, hot water, sewer, and refuse." The lease as well as the addendum are signed by both myself and the lessor. When I inquired about how "human error" is something I should be penalized for, she responded by saying that I could move out of the apartment if I was unhappy with having to pay electric and that she could help in my search to relocate. Clearly, I am not looking to move (it's a hassle, not to mention costly, and I've finally settled in). But that's besides the fact. I signed the lease with the impression that all of my utilities would be included which is a large part of why the unit was so appealing to me, considering I am a graduate student and need to save where I can.

Nonetheless, what are you thoughts? Any advice about how I should go forward with this? What are my options?

I appreciate all the help I can get. Thank you!!

Local newspaper article can help save on a college education.
Added on : Friday September 05th 2014 07:00:12 AM
g: 0 Posted By: scatti
Views: 20 Replies: 0 To reduce the cost of a college education, know the right questions to ask.

One way that a student can significantly reduce his or her college costs is by looking carefully at the credit transfer process. Completing the first two years at a community college by taking core curriculum classes can help students earn transferable credits while keeping their cost of tuition low. The majority of these core classes transfer because most of the colleges and universities are evaluated by the same accrediting agencythe Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. This agency sets the standard by which courses and curriculum must be maintained.

As a starting point, students should find out if the institutions that they are considering have this accreditation.

The key to the transfer of credits and courses is to work closely, very closely, with the admission staffs of each institution. In my admissions career, I always felt it better to work with the student during the first two years so that they will transfer to your institution for the last two. Because of financial and/or personal constraints, many students will need to utilize this approach to earn their degree; therefore, good advice can only benefit the student and the college in the end.

As a potential transfer student, you must have a clear answer as to whether the school will accept the course(s) as direct equivalents to their courses or will they only be accepting the credit hours. Accepting only the credit hours will likely mean that you will have to repeat the course at the accepting institution. Also, what grade is required to have the course transfer? Typically, this would be a C or better, but each institution could have its own variance on this requirement.

One question that I was frequently asked was how many credits will we accept? A school can accept as many or as few as they want. The key question here is to ask how many credits I will need to earn to graduate in a specific degree program after I transfer. Many degrees have specific requirements that must be completed at the degree-granting institution.

As an illustration, lets assume that a student wishes to become a certified public accountant. To do so, the student typically needs to earn a bachelors degree in accounting with additional coursework totaling around 150 credit hours. No college or university can grant the CPA. A student must pass a state monitored exam to earn this certification. It may also include experience in the field. The point being is that a student can begin to earn their degree requirements at a community college and then finish at a bachelor-degree granting institution.

Never eliminate any college in your initial search regardless of your financial situation. Most scholarships offered by four year institutions are front-ended. This simply means that they are going to offer most of their scholarship dollars to potential first-year students. Make application to these colleges and see what they are offering. It might be to your benefit to start at a four-year school when you calculate the costs over that period of time. Discounting tuition is a common practice. Be sure to explore this possibility so you can decide on the best course of action to obtain your degree.

The key to the transfer process is not to be concerned about where or how you start your college experience. In my career, I used the following question to make this point: How many have ever asked their physician where he/she took CHEM 101? If past experience dictates, then the answer in none. Why? Because your family doctor has a degree from a medical school and has passed the state boards to practice medicine, therefore no one really cares where they took CHEM 101? Remember its not where you start but that you finish.

Renters insurance Claim woes. Advice appreciated!
Added on : Thursday September 04th 2014 07:00:15 AM
g: 0 Posted By: mp3ster
Views: 129 Replies: 4 So ill make this story as short as possible. My girlfriend and I live in a Condo that we rent. We have had renters insurance with the same company for the last 5 years, and had not made a claim until this one, and we are not happy.

What happened :
-Our cable line got hit by lightning, this fried all of our cable boxes, and modem. This also fried all of the HDMI ports on the TV's and projectors that the cable boxes were attached to. It also fried my router.

Resolution:
-WOW! (our cable provider) replaced all of the cable boxes and the modem 3 days after the lightning strike. At that time it was determined (by the tech that came to our house) that all of the HDMI ports for the devices that their boxes were connected to got fried. He hooked every box up via component cables instead. And that the router is no longer functional.

Insurance Claim:
-Assurant is our insurance company. The adjuster that was assigned to our claim contacted me a few days after i opened the claim over the phone.
The Adjuster said that we had to itemize all of the items damaged, and had to get a "certified electronic repair person" to verify damages and provide an estimate for the repairs. That repair person would have to provide a replacement / repair cost to the insurance company.
I contacted WOW! and had one of their service tech's call Assurant to verify the damages. This did not satisfy the insurance company's request.

Here is my irritation:
This is all done on my dime and my time. I have to take the TV's and hardware that was damaged to the electronic store. I have to pay the $35 per device for him to diagnose the issue. And i have a $500 deductible. So if they are able to fix it, its all coming out of my pocket (assuming HDMI boards are under $500)
I complained to the insurance company that this is the adjuster job, that we pay for insurance to be covered, not to have to fight. If a tree fell on my car, would my insurance company make me drive to a Body Shop and make an estimate? No.

Needless to say, this is the only claim that i will have with this insurance company. As soon as this claim is resolved, i will be switching company's'.

If you guys could provide me some feedback on how to handle this with my insurance company, or if you had a similar, or way different experience, chime in!

List of damaged electronics :

55" 1080p Panasonic smart TV
32" 1080p LCD TV
Optoma 1080p Projector
Onkyo reciever
Asus Router
Xbox 360

Views: 73 Replies: 1 I am currently an NRI working in USA. I got enrolled in to an LIC policy called Jeevan Tarang during my last trip to India. I love this policy as it provides security to my family, bonus at maturity and also helps during my retirement through survival benefits which pays yearly 5.5% of the sum insured after maturity.

I am now planning to become a permanent resident here in USA, may be a citizen of US in the future. Considering I am a permanent resident/Citizen of USA at the time of LIC policy maturity, would I still be able to get thebonus atmaturity? Would I be eligible to enjoy the yearly survival benefits of this policy?

I asked the same questions to the LIC representative over phone few days back and she said "Yes" for both my questions. I am still concerned if LIC would give me hard time in terms of any documentation or any other things I may not be aware of or any change in rules/terms that may stop me from getting benefited from the LIC maturity and survival benefits.

I hate to surrender the policy now as I would lose the two premiums I paid so far, at the same time I don't want to pay future premiums if I see any possibility of not being able to get the benefits in the future.

I see some uncertainty in my case and like to know from this forum if any of you went through/seen similar scenarios. Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks

Student Accident Insurance

g: 0 Posted By: invisible
Views: 13 Replies: 0 "Student Accident Insurance" : Is that deemed a poor choice by most? An unneeded insurance?
Thought I will check here before tossing what schools seem to be mildly but exclusively pushing

Some questions to FWF members experienced in this regard:

Is the Student Accident Insurance worth buying in specific scenarios?
How about when parents/family is insured through employer under a very high deductible plan and having HSA?
Any comparative sites or recommendations on which company/product to buy in this regard?

Just to give some idea this one company (www.sas-mn.com) that has the schools send out their forms with prices such as $89 for whole year 24x7 (various amounts for various medical services) or $14 for school time. Thinking of using that $89 full time coverage as an additional insurance due to high deductible health insurance and an otherwise very healthy family, so precisely for accidents where this may save some OOP costs after primary insurance would have us cough up high deductibles.

Note: It seems like some insurers of this product ask for the State one lives in, and on choosing show specific (v.few) schools they cover. That was a surprise as I expected any insurance company operating in the state to cover any schools within.

What preparations in case of job loss?
Added on : Tuesday September 02nd 2014 04:00:09 AM
g: 0 Posted By: RhizzleBop
Views: 118 Replies: 8 There is a lot of change going on at my company. Our department is being reorganized and I feel a couple people may be on the outside of that plan looking in. In case I'm one of those, I'm wondering what's the best approach to ensure my wellbeing as best as possible?

My wife works but hers doesnt quite cover all the bills.
Im a mechanical engineer with 11 years experience in hvac consulting, and extreme environment sealing systems such as oil and gas, semicon, industrial, etc. to be clear, I don't work in those industries, but we make sealing systems for those industries and sell to them.

We live as far south EAST as you can just about without going into Florida. My city is not a big industrial/ manufacturing city by any means. I prefer not to move because my wife has a great job she loves and we don't really want to move.

I would take a job elsewhere if it meant driving 4-6 hours and staying all week for as long as I needed to to keep the lights on.

We do have some savings. With her bringing in income we could survive a year without totally draining our savings, though it would eat up most of it.

If the worst happens, I'll be applying for anything and everything including waiting tables, or grocery store or pest treatment guy, anything. However realistically I dunno if any of those places would hire me as I'm way over qualified.

I'm already looking and updated my rsum just in case.
Mom interested in joining another industry such as finance( such as being a financial advisor or similar in banking). I'm very good with numbers and data and have an interest in that anyway. I'm also interested I marketing but that's even a further stretch from engineering.

I'm probably more prepared that 80% of people but it scares me and I want to do everything right and take the best steps forward to ensure our wellbeing.

Im thinking if the worst happens to go immediately and register to take a realestate class and get my liscense. I have a friend who can probably get me on somewhere and since I won't need a check immediately, could give me a little time to make a sale and might net more income than grocery clerk.

Anything else I should be doing in preparation?

Any hot spots for jobs I should consider for a "working remotely for a few months to a year" situation? North Dakota fracking comes to mind but id rather be able to return home on weekends.

75% off SELECT cordless shavers @ Kmart B&M, YMMV

YMMV.

There were some cordless shavers on clearance for 50% off, but shelves for those were empty.
So I grabbed one of each model (about 6 shavers), threw them in my cart and was heading toward a price scanner.

One aisle away from the price scanner I spotted a few different models of cordless shavers, up on very top of the shampoo aisle, so I grabbed one of each of those (about 4 shavers). Apparently this particular "top shelf" area was the "Inventory Overflow" section for the Toiletries dept.

At the price scanner, none of the shavers from the shaver aisle were the clearance shavers I was after.
The 75% off jackpot was from those cordless shavers that were on the top shelf of the shampoo aisle.
One was a norelco triple header for $18 (regular $74), then there was a Panasonic for $25 (regular $99.99) and finally a Wahl cordless beard trimmer/shaver for $18,

The norelco triple header model PT729 for just $18.00 (No price tag on it at all, but online MSRP search shows MSRP as $74.00).1. Norelco PT729 (scanned @ $18)
Specifications:

Powertouch Cordless Razor
Floating Heads
Super Lift & Cut Technology
Corded / Cordless Operation
Washable
Full Charge Time 8 Hours

2. Panasonic NANOTECH model ES8103s (scanned @ $25)
Specifications:

Wet/Dry Shaver with Nanotech Blades,
Pivoting Head,
Fast 13,000 RPM
Linear Motor cuts clean,

3. Wahl cordless trimmer/shaver
Specifications:Sorry but I forgot to get the model and details on this one.
It was originally $69.99, tagged as $34.99 but scanned at $18.
It looked like the Wahl 9818, as it was an all chrome model but I'll have to check for sure next time I get to Kmart.

costco 65" Slumber Cat Tower 29.97 YMMV
Added on : Sunday August 31st 2014 10:00:04 AM
g: 0 Posted By: bearsloft
Views: 328 Replies: 0 A few weeks ago I purchased a Beatrise "65 Slumber Cat Tower for $49.97 at my local Costco. I believe this item was originally priced at 79.99 or 89.99 so I purchased feeling proud to have saved that much money. Today I spotted the same product now priced at $29.97. After a little of bit of drama I did get the price difference refunded to me, but thought I'd share with my fellow cat owners who are burdened with excess space in their house

The item itself is well made. It's heavy and very sturdy, covered completely in a shag carpet. Mine has a light tan, but they all seemed to have different shades of tan or brown. Both my local stores just outside of Cincinnati, OH have lots of these in stock. I marked this post YMMV as I have no idea if these are offered nation wide. The website no longer has info on these. The costco item number is 815603.

My younger cat loves it. We got it to encourage her to STOP sitting directly in front of our plasma screen TV.

NY Times: 7 Steps To Cheap Hotels
Added on : Saturday August 30th 2014 03:00:09 PM
g: 0 Posted By: LArugby
Views: 92 Replies: 1 The NY Times has an excellent travel section (certainly better than the nonsense we deal with at the LA Times). One of my favorite travel writers is Seth Kugel (probably because I wish I had his life of writing for the NY Times, covering events such as the "Pastry Festival" in Nice or the latest Hefewiezen tastings in Munich). He's known as the "Frugal Traveler" and often has some good tips on where to stay, book, and when to go.

One of his latest is "7 Steps To Cheaper Hotel Rooms". Its something that can help readers on FatWallet. Here is the article:http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/10/travel/7-steps-to-a-cheaper-ho...

When reading I thought, "I could do better with some of my own tips" particularly when he mentioned Kayak.com as the site to use to check rates. For me, that is not a tip for 2014. It's more 2008. Why? Every time I search on Kayak it almost always pulls up the rates on Priceline or Expedia. This search "100 sites stuff" that Kayak touts in the slogans is highly questionable. They seem to search about 3 or 4 sites.

It seems plenty of readers felt that way too. So the "Frugal Traveler" gave us a follow up based on reader comments that is worth checking out.

His follow up was "Readers Respond To Hotel Tips":http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/19/travel/readers-respond-to-hote...

In this one he takes it on the chin with some comments that some readers found questionable. However, what I saw as the best comment in both articles was the mentioning of BestTravelCoupon.com and how it measured up with Kayak. Kugel did a rate comparison test and wrote that it did "Search more sites than Kayak" (How could it not?) and that it beats "Kayak's best". I thought the "Frugal Traveler" came up with a good tip here. It's a site I use and it does beat up Kayak whenever I compare the sites.

Check out both links to the NY Times above. You'll find some good info in there on saving on travel including the stuff on BestTravelCoupon and a mention of Yapta which is a newer travel service for flights which I was not aware of.

Hope you find this useful.

Liberty Mutual dragging it's feet over Total Loss Valuation claim
Added on : Friday August 29th 2014 11:00:07 AM
g: -1 Posted By: ShakuniMama
Views: 59 Replies: 1 It's been almost 4 weeks since my car accident as discussed here

My 2002 Honda accord was rear ended and is deemed a total loss by the appraiser. The at fault driver's (NJ plates) Liberty Mutual insurance has bee dragging it's feet over the valuation. It's been almost four weeks since the accident. After multiple calls/emails, It took them two weeks to send an appraiser who told me that someone from the total loss department will contact me within 2-3 days. When no one contacted me after 3 days, I emailed the assigned total loss claim specialist but receive no response for one week. I kept on emailing daily without any response. Finally, I called only to find an answering machine and received a message on my answering machine that this matter cannot be handled via emails and I have to "discuss" it with him.
I emailed the corp:krista.young@libertymutual.com,presidentialsvcteam@libertymutual.com as well as called his supervisor Djessica Lopesbut no response so far.

I finally managed to talk with the above mentioned claim specialist Michael Green @ total loss department today. He asked me few questions about my car and said that they don't have the mileage from my car despite the fact that the appraiser noted it down in front of me! He asked me to email him (see the irony) the picture of the odometer reading. What I don't understand is that he refused to discuss anything about a rental (I have been paying for it for last 4 weeks) saying it's company policy not to discuss about rental till valuation is completed. However, my insurance company specialist told me that they are supposed to provide a rental from the day one for "loss of use" till the payment is made and new car is bought.

I called again after emailing the pictures of odometer reading as well as my car's service history but got the answering machine again.

What are my options regarding rental and his refusal to answer emails ?
Best way to convert mutual funds
Added on : Friday August 29th 2014 06:00:13 AM
g: 0 Posted By: penguinknot
Views: 14 Replies: 0 I have several mutual funds in a few accounts (Roth IRA and Individual accounts each for my wife and me) that I'm wanting to get out of them and either go to Vanguard funds or Vanguard ETFs according to my desired portfolio mix. The old funds are a mix of American Funds and other at the time NTF ETrade funds. I've moved all of my funds to OptionsHouse to take advantage of the free 100 trades promotion but am wondering the best way to do the conversion. I obviously don't need to worry about the commissions in this but I see a few pitfalls with each option.

Into Vanguard Funds:
Con: Out of the market for at least a day (sell at end of day on say Monday and can't buy again until Tuesday end of day at the earliest)
Pro: Fully invest settled $$s in fractional shares

Into Vanguard ETFs:
Con: Can't fully invest settled $$s due to whole shares only. Did a test with a small section of my account and it took roughly 3 days to get the settled funds into the ETFs (each transaction took up a larger portion of my available buying power than the value of the ETFs, then it all was available the next day).
Pro: Hypothetically out of the market for less time since can sell a fund on end of day Monday and buy an ETF at market open Tuesday (although my test above seems to conflict with this pro).

Anybody have any thoughts or suggestions?

Views: 212 Replies: 0 I've been watching this keyboard for a couple of weeks, going back and forth between no-name (Rosewill) keyboards and loud Cherry Blue keyboards (like the K70 on sale at Fry's)

Today I stacked a deal that isn't the best, but seemed warm to me, at least. This may not be a 'deal' unless you've been in the market for a full-featured mechanical keyboard.

Best Buy has it on sale currently for $109(Reg $149). as do a few others. Microcenter shows it at $139

Here's how I made it work for me, using the Kroger 4x Gift card promo that runs through 9/2.

$109.00 @ Best Buy
-$14.00 off gas at my next purchase (400 pts for buying a $100 BB gift card = $0.40/gal up to 35 gallons)
-$1.63 FW Cash Back
---------------
$93.37 + tax

The next closest deal I could find was refurbished via Ebay for ~$89with mixed reviews and a 90 day warranty.

I hope it helps someone who's looking to enter the 'expensive' world of mechanical keyboards. I'm typing on it now - the lightweight keys and LED illumination are marvelous.

Learn the latest SQL Server 2014 database design methods for career advancement; among them in-memory OLTP tables, FileTable FILESTREAM storage and ColumnStore indexes. Relational database design teach-by-practical-diagrams-&-examples book for developers, programmers, systems analysts and project managers who are new to relational database and client/server technologies. Also for database developers, database designers and database administrators (DBA), who know some database design, and who wish to refresh & expand their RDBMS design technology horizons. Familiarity with at least one computer programming language, Windows file system & Excel is assumed. Since the book is career advancement oriented, it has a great number of 3NF database design examples with metadata explanations along with practical SQL queries (over 700 SELECT queries) and T-SQL scripts, plenty to learn indeed. Great emphasis is placed on explaining the FOREIGN KEY - PRIMARY KEY constraints among tables, the connections which make the collection of individual tables a database. The database diagrams and queries are based on historic and current SQL Server sample databases: pubs (PRIMARY KEYs 9, FOREIGN KEYs 10) , Northwind (PRIMARY KEYs 13, FOREIGN KEYs 13) and the latest AdventureWorks series. Among them: AdventureWorks, AdventureWorks2008, AdventureWorks2012 (PRIMARY KEYs 71, FOREIGN KEYs 90), & AdventureWorksDW2012 (PRIMARY KEYs 27, FOREIGN KEYs 44). The last one is a data warehouse database which is the basis for multi-dimensional OLAP cubes. The book teaches through vivid database diagrams and T-SQL queries how to think in terms of sets at a very high level, focusing on set-based operations instead of loops like in procedural programming languages. The best way to master relational database design & T-SQL programming is to type the query in your own SQL Server Management Studio Query Editor, test it, examine it, change it and study it. Wouldn't it be easier just to copy & paste it? It would, but the learning value would diminish rapidly. You need to feel relational database design and the SQL language in your DNA. SQL queries, "CREATE TABLEs" must "pour" out from your fingers into the keyboard. Why is knowing SQL queries by heart so important? After all everything can be found on the web so why not just copy & paste? Well not exactly. If you want to be an database designer expert, it has to be in your head not on the web. Second, when your supervisor is looking over your shoulder, "Chuck, can you create a new table for our electric pumps inventory?", you have to be able to type the CREATE TABLE query without documentation or SQL forum search and explain how it will work to your superior promptly. The book was designed to be readable in any environment, even on the beach laptop around or no laptop in sight at all. All queries are followed by results row count and /or full/partial results listing in tabular (grid) format. Screenshots are used when dealing with GUI tools such as SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). Mastery of the relational database design book likely to be sufficient for career advancement as a database designer and database developer.

Unraveling HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IOSC4CM/

As an experienced C# programmer and enterprise architect, I found myself in a strange situation after 20 years of experience. Even if I worked on project teams that implemented big systems including satellite web sites, I was dropped behind those team members who started their professional life pretty close to new generationneat, asynchronous, dynamic, etc.web page development. It took months to find the right way to be able to communicate with them, and find the common language with them. During these months I read many books, blog posts, articles, and went through many small programming exercises to get into the picture.

Well, I decided to create a series of booklets using my experiencesto help you cope with similar situations.

Need help negotiating car purchase for Saturday!
Added on : Wednesday August 27th 2014 11:00:30 AM
g: 0 Posted By: mpennyranger
Views: 39 Replies: 1 Hi,
I have read a number of threads here and elsewhere re: trying to send out letters to negotiate the purchase of a new car, and I am just about ready to do so--I am in the market for a new Volvo XC60--I have done my test drives, compiled a list of dealerships that I would be willing to drive to (as well as a few others that are very far, but perhaps would be willing to make a good deal), gotten contact info for the internet or fleet salespeople, gotten preapproved through a credit union, know my FICO score, etc..... I am just hitting a hurdle in terms of setting up my letter, and could use some advice.

All of the sample letters suggest saying SPECIFICALLY what you want, so you can compare apples to apples. BUT, in my case, there are two things that I would accept: a 2015 XC60 with the BLIS package OR a 2014 XC60 with the BLIS package. I would definitely prefer the 2015 because it has a substantially higher MPG, but if the 2014 was substantially lower than the best 2015 price I could get, I would consider it. (The available 2014s are also more likely to be "upgraded" from the base model 2015 that I am shooting for, but none of the upgrades from the base model thrill me, so I'm not willing to pay extra for them.)

I DEFINITELY want to make a deal on Saturday because its end of the month and a number of Volvo manufacturer deals that would be awesome ($1000 Cash Back, extra 2 years of warranty & all maintenance, etc.) are expiring, and I want to close a deal as long as something hits my price Target, but I am not exactly sure how to frame the letter. Price also matters a lot, so I do want to see exactly how low I can go. I don't want my letter to say "I'll take the 2014 if it is substantially lower than your 2015 offer," b/c I know they want to get rid of the 2014s and they will just not reduce the 2015 offer. I am thinking perhaps the best strategy would be to send out an only-2015 offer on Thursday, see what comes back with my required specs, and Friday follow up with those same dealerships and say, "I would also consider a 2014, what is your best offer" and then just compare. Thoughts???

(Apologies for being so long-winded)

http://www.fullofdeals.com/forums/finance/1356141/?start=0

I hate my current job. Was not happy when I went out on leave but now that I am back, I dread every hour of the work day. I am bored writing SQL queries and being tied to a desk 8 hours of the day.

I am considering taking a new job doing something I am well-qualified for and that I would enjoy doing. It's not a desk job. I would do local travel and meet people. The kicker is that it's a huge pay cut -- the average salary is $48,000. I don't have an offer for this job, at least not yet (it's not even an official opening yet) but it could be if I inquire (again, huge match for my skills). There is the logical part of me that says life is short, you got a second chance, do what you makes you happy and then there is the FWF side of me that thinks we need the larger salary and that it might kill me to take that pay cut.

Any advice from the FWF crowd?

Planet Fitness $99/year no annual fee, no startup fee Expires Wed 8/27

g: 0 Posted By: Domanator
Views: 234 Replies: 2 I checked a few locations in Northeast Ohio and got this deal. It expires 8/27. Normally, the cheapest deal at Planet Fitness involves a $19-39 start up fee, $29 annual fee, and $10/month. This deal is $99/year paid upfront with no startup or annual fees. It can be paid with credit card at the gym. Check planetfitness.com and click Join Now for a club near you to see if the deal is there. After 1 year, you can renew for another $99. You can also sign up for this if you are on an existing plan. I signed up and they gave me the $99 rate and started it after my current month that I already paid for expired. This is a savings of $50 per year on the aforementioned normal rate, not including start up fee savings if you are a new member. With this deal you are looking at an average of $8.25/month as supposed to $12.41/month. Also, if you are a current member the annual fees will be charged to your account in October so if you do this deal now you will avoid paying it.

There's nothing too girly about the bike, so if you remove a few decals you will have a plain white bike that should be fine for a boy as well.

Self Directed IRA To Invest In Local Entrepeneur You Advise? Legal?
Added on : Friday August 22nd 2014 05:00:33 PM
g: 0 Posted By: robronson
Views: 93 Replies: 1 I understand self-directed IRAs are not allowed to be used to do things you can control, such as invest in a business you manage or a buy a house you rent to yourself.

What if you paired up with a local entrepreneur, who you're advising and helping get started, and invested in his business through your self directed IRA? You technically wouldn't have legal control over what he did with the money, but you are serving as an adviser. Maybe not an adviser on paper but he will go to you on a regular basis for advise on how to run the business and perhaps to ask for more money if he needs additional capital, which you can also invest from your IRA.

This seems like a reasonably legit way to set up a business that you don't personally run, but is based on your ideas, and has been vetted by you to have a strong chance of success, and also get tax-free returns by investing from your Roth IRA. While most businesses are unsuccessful, the very few that are successful get returns extremely high. I could envision getting a 10x return over one or two years with the right business.

FATCA implementation in Cyprus - it's in effect here now it appears
Added on : Thursday August 21st 2014 03:00:09 AM
g: 0 Posted By: GotRocks
Views: 48 Replies: 1 I've had a bank account in Cyprus, where I now live, since 2008. I moved here permanently in 2011. Opening the account was simple and they even used my US address until I had one in Cyprus. I only had to provide my passport to open the account. I've complied with FBAR since I opened the account.

Today I went into my bank to arrange to get a new ATM card (current card expires soon) and was met with a barrage of forms. At first I thought that this was the typical bureaucratic nonsense of banking here in Cyprus (enhanced by the crisis last year). But no....I was wrong. They wanted my SS number and a copy of my SS card (which I do not carry with me here in Cyprus) and I had to sign some forms saying I was a tax resident of the US (kind of weird because even though I do not live in the US, if you are a US citizen, you are subject to US income tax). They weren't US or Cyprus gov forms, they were bank created forms.

I had been wondering when something like this was going to happen and now it has. So it appears that Cyprus is complying with FATCA. I am glad to know that they weren't going to close my account.

It doesn't seem that this bank is actively soliciting getting Americans' SS numbers as FATCA has been in effect since 14 July (I believe). I think that they are just updating the info when the American customer comes into the bank for something. I expect they'll get around to hunting the rest of us down in the next few months. Not that many Americans in Cyprus.

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

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

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

They came out today and sprayed the nests and charged me $267 and they will come back next week and remove one since the other is way to high. The neighboring house is a two family rental unit. So I am not certain who the owner even is, but im sure I can find out. When the pest guy come out he was telling me that the neighbor should be paying to have these nests removed since they are located in their tree. I'm not sure what any suggestions would be ideal.

Views: 197 Replies: 13 The point of this ridiculously long-winded analysis is to determine the true cost to OPERATE (not own) an average-priced vehicle with average depreciation (per mile driven) and average fuel efficiency. Long story short, I did this analysis to convince my best friend to not buy a home in the suburbs... he is looking to buy a home that's about 30 miles from his place of employment. His wife also commutes into town for work. He owns a 2011 Toyota Tacoma and she drives a 2010 Lexus ES - they own them F&C. Between both cars, they average about 20 mpg. I'm trying to convince him to buy in town or close to town to cut his commute to <5 miles. However, the home that's 30 miles away is about $200K less for essentially the exact same size home in town (safety/crime is similar in both areas); the home in town is older but is in move in condition. He can afford the $200K price difference based on his earnings. Their daughter also attends private school in town so there is no benefit from a school district perspective. The commute time if they lived in town is <10 minutes each way. The suburbs is 75 minutes in each direction and that's with no stalled vehicles or accidents.

Most of the blogs I've read online (and I've forwarded to him) that argue the insane cost of commuting take into consideration the operating cost AND ownership costs into one figure. In addition to depreciation due to mileage put on the car, fuel, maintenance, etc, they would also factor in things like financing, depreciation due to vehicle age, parking, registration, motor vehicle taxes, etc and then come to a general cost per mile of ownership based on X miles driven (typically it's 15,000 miles). Those numbers vary but generally come in at about 61 cents/mile. Obviously, that number is seriously flawed if you only want to know what it costs to operate that vehicle and drive it X miles. I believe it's impractical for most people to not own a car; knowing what it costs to own it is one thing... but understanding what it costs to pull it out of the driveway and drive it X miles is critical when making decisions about investing in a home many miles away from ones' place of employment.

For sake of argument this applies to those that MUST own a car simply because they don't want to rely on bicycles, mopeds, motorcycles or any form of public transportation to commute. This applies to those that are looking at the true financial costs of commuting longer distances to work/entertainment/etc as a trade off to having lower cost housing in the suburbs/"commuter" neighborhoods.

The first consideration is depreciation... and not the kind of depreciation due to your car getting old but rather depreciation due to miles being put on the car itself. First, we need to determine the cost of an "average" car... and that comes to $31,800 as of last year. I specifically searched on KBB the resale value of cars including Toyota, Ford, Honda, Lexus, Kia and GM that were close to the $31,800 in value as new in 2013. The zipcode entered into the KBB site is in Los Angeles. For sake of ascertaining an accurate depreciation per mile we will use the "baseline" mileage at 3,000/miles per year (i.e. this is the minimum mileage I'm assuming anyone that owns a car will drive and all costs incurred per mile in this analysis are over the 3,000 mile baseline). I used 2011 model year cars for examples on each one; this would mean the car was on the road for roughly 4 years on average. I used 12 different models from 6 different makes all priced (today) at around $32K new. I inputted 3K, 8K, 10K, 12K, 14K, 16K, 18K, 20K, 22K and 24K miles and recorded the difference in value for each. Drivers that put only 3 - 8K miles year only depreciated by 8.1 cents per mile over 3,000 miles. I found that the mileage depreciation between 8,000-12,000 miles averaged about 10.6 cents/mile but when we jumped from 12,000 miles to 16,000 miles the extra 4,000 miles a year cost the owner 11.8 cents/mile hit on value ($472 depreciation). Between 15,000 and 18,000 it jumped up to 12.7 cents/mile average. Over 18,000 miles/year the cost per mile plateaued and was fairly linear in the mid 12-cent/mile range through 24,000 miles. A very conservative average between all the cars and all mileage ranges came in at about 11.4 cents so we will use this figure as the true depreciation per mile driven for all cars that have at least 3,000 miles a year being put on them. Note that older economy cars will realize depreciation rates as low as 7 cents/mile... However the same can be said on the upside where newer luxury cars will see an average 15-22 cent/mile depreciation (I tried to input some luxury cars as well that were priced at $50-$60K). I think 11.4 cents mile is on the low side but let's stick with that for the purpose of this analysis. COST OF DEPRECIATION PER MILE DRIVEN FOR CARS THAT TRAVEL MORE THAN 3,000 MILES ANNUALLY - 11.4 cents

Fuel - yes, I know you can buy a Prius that gets significantly better mpg than an average vehicle but there are many vehicles that get more than 20-30% lower mpg than the average car. I owned a Prius and only averaged 37 mpg which is no where near the EPA estimate of 50. So one needs to consider the TRUE mpg to ascertain the cost per mile in fuel consumption The average car gets 24.9 mpg and this is based on EPA estimates; in reality people will be putting well over a gallon of gas in to travel 24.9 miles. In fact, sitting in slow-moving bumper-to-bumper traffic kills EPA estimates by a good margin. But to stay conservative, we'll use that figure 24.9 figure. 24.9 mpg translates to 15.1 cents per mile at $3.77/gallon (national average). I pay over $4.35 for fuel where I live but again, averages trump real world for the sake of argument. COST OF FUEL PER MILE - 15.1 cents

Average maintenance cost for a vehicle is roughly 5.3 cents/mile. There are countless studies that break this data down and this is simply an average. It varies from as low as 4.1 cents to as high as 6.8 cents with the most common coming in at about 5.2-5.5 cents. This includes tire replacement, wiper replacement, oil changes, filter changes, wear and tear/maintenance of vehicle components, etc. COST OF MAINTENANCE PER MILE - 5.3 cents

Insurance costs are slightly lower for those that commute less. There are insurance companies that base their rates on miles driven and others that give discounts for those that put a relatively low number of miles on their cars. I had to check with my Allstate provider to see if there would be a difference and it was small... an increase of about $85/year if I doubled my mileage from my current 6,500 to 13,000 (I felt a little ripped off when I was told this). Based on that information, I would assume it's safe to say that one could save at least $85/year on premiums if they cut their commute by 6,500 miles. This translates to 1.3 cents/mile in hard costs. COST OF INSURANCE FOR MILES DRIVEN - 1.3 cents

Driving infractions/tickets/etc... Now this one is a tough one. Obviously the more you drive the more likely you are to be pulled over and be ticketed. While some people have never received a ticket in their lives others get tickets every year. According to national law enforcement statistics, of the 195 million licensed drivers on the road in the US, 41 million of them are getting ticketed every year on average. That's roughly a 1 in 5 chance of getting a ticket every year. The average cost of a ticket is $155. Insurance rates increase an average of $320/year based on one speeding ticket going 15 miles over the speed limit. So if there is a 1 in 5 chance you'll get a speeding ticket in a year and that cost will run you $475 that translates to an "average" of $95/year on speeding infraction costs. If the average driver traverses 13,476/miles of roadway in a year that translates to 0.7 cents mile for infractions and this means getting a ticket only once every 5 years... which I could imagine is pretty low and conservative. COST PER MILE FOR TICKETS FOR DRIVING INFRACTIONS - 0.7 cents

Accidents - here is another tough one. Personal costs of injury and property damage are extremely hard to average as they can vary by a huge margin. Especially because some people can go decades without a single incident. The car industry purports that the average driver only gets into a "significant" car accident every 17.9 years or roughly 3.5 times in a lifetime. The average cost of these accidents is $23,450 of which only a small portion (assuming you're insured) comes from the driver's pocket. Assuming deductible costs, time lost, personal injury, repairs/rental not covered by insurance, etc, we'll very conservatively peg this cost at $1,000/per "significant" accident as a direct cost to the driver.That's $3,500 over a lifetime. Over 843,600 miles (what the average person drives over a lifetime), that comes to 0.4 cents/mile. Again this is a very low figure and does not take into account countless minor fender benders which can easily cost several hundreds up to a couple thousand to repair especially if you didn't want to report this to insurance in fear your rates will go up. COST PER MILE FOR ACCIDENTS - 0.4 cents

Toll roads - Depending on where you live and work, toll roads can easily add 5-10 cents/mile on to your commute... possibly much more. However, this isn't applicable everywhere (we have no toll roads in my state) so I am leaving this one out of the equation. If you live in an area that requires you to traverse toll roads you'll have to include this in your calculations.

Total cost to OPERATE a vehicle PER MILE (over 3,000 miles/year) not including toll roads - 34.2 cents per mile.

The point of getting this average is so people can better calculate their finances should they decide to live in a commuter city/neighborhood or suburb vs living in or near the urban core. One could point out that you could save much more if you don't buy a car at all. That's very true. The 34.2 cents/mile operating cost is only about half the cost of total ownership and operations but this is the cost of the mileage applied to a car you already own and need. Note that if you own a newer luxury model that gets not-so-stellar fuel efficiency, the 34.2 cents/mile can easily exceed 50 cents/mile on operating costs only. To be fair, I did an analysis on an older (12 years old) more fuel efficient economy car (35 mpg) with an original purchase price of $20,000 and the cost to operate dropped to a low of 21 cents/mile. But this is an extreme example on the low end and not realistic for most. I think most people that can afford to buy a home will own cars that are at least "average" priced and aged.

Now that I know what it costs to take the average car one mile on the road, I wanted to see just how this impacts housing prices and rents. To be fair, the overwhelming amount of people that live in town also commute shorter distances to entertainment venues, restaurants, places of interest, etc etc. So if there are 241 work days in a year it's fair to add another 52 days of commuting into town per year (that's one extra drive into town PER WEEK, which is very conservative, in my opinion). That means 293 days of commuting into town for the average person (driving into town an average of 5.6 times/week). If that average person lives 30 miles from town, that's 293 days x 30 miles x 2 trips = 17,580 miles. If one lived in town, and had a 5 mile commute, this comes to 293 days x 5 miles x 2 trips = 2,930 miles. So while the person living 30 miles from work is commuting 12,050 MORE miles every year (work commute only) than the person that lives 5 miles from work, they are also driving an additional 2,600 miles year because of their proximity to places they need to drive to that are outside of their place of employment. So for every individual mile one lives further from work (2 mile round trip commute) it translates into $200.41/year in direct costs for ONE car (293 days x 1 mile x 2 trips x 34.2 cents = $200.41/year). If it's two cars commuting (which is more common in households these days), you are looking at double that or $400.82/year.

$1,000 in mortgage costs @ 4.5% amortized over 30 years is $4.21/mo or $50.52/year. So for every one mile you live further from work/play, this translates into $3,966 in additional home purchase price you can afford or $16.70 in additional rent you could afford. If you have two cars making the same commute, double that to $7,934 in home value or $33.40 in rent for every single mile you live further from work. Many people in my place of employment chose to live ~30 miles or more away where housing is cheaper. If the difference from my 5-mile commute is 25 miles traveled (50 miles/day), it comes to $99,150 in mortgage and $835/mo in rent. and you'll have to double that to $198,300 in additional mortgage they could afford and $1,670/mo in additional rent they could afford if they had a two-car household. This does not even consider that of your mortgage payment roughly 1/3 of the payment goes back to your pocket in principal payments (i.e. forced savings) and the other 2/3 of the mortgage payment is (at least for now) 100% tax deductible. Arguably, if you look at the bottom line (forced savings + tax deduction benefit assuming a conservative 30% state and fed combined tax rate), each mile you live further from work translates to roughly $7,100 in additional mortgage payments one could afford for each and every car attached to that home that makes that work commute. All while your mortgage is fixed and your car's operating costs continue to increase over the years. Assuming the above assumptions are accurate, living 10 miles closer to your job can allow you to afford $71K more in a house purchase and that's just with one car. Double that for a two-car commuting family and quadruple it to $284K for the same family living 20 miles from work.

These numbers are absolutely staggering to me and I can't help but think my math and/or assumptions are off somewhere. But it definitely enforces my argument that my friend should buy in town. For those that managed to make it through all this, please chime in and offer any corrections to my reasoning. Yes, I understand there are many assumptions made here but again, the purpose of this post is to get an average figure most people can relate to. I think very few people actually consider the real cost of driving and they end up making mistakes by either buying or renting far distances from their place of employment and other desired activities because they assume they are saving money by doing so. This analysis only takes into account the direct financial costs of driving longer distances... it doesn't take into account the plethora of other considerations (which I find vastly more important) like compromised health and well-being, increased stress, quality time away from family/friends/gym/activities/alone time/relaxing/sleep, etc etc. Sitting in traffic for hours on end every day is a huge quality of life issue for me personally, money aside. If the 30 mile commute was FREE, I would still pay the $200K difference.

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

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

What they are wanting purchase from us:

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

Where we are in the process:

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

What they will pay for:

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

What they might pay for:

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

What they won't pay for:

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

Negotiation Strategies:

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

It is a few more hoops to jump through then simply buying from xbox.com or Amazon, but it is probably the cheapest around at the moment.

Using the average number of sheets I've seen advertised for "double" rolls, these should qualify easily as "quadruple" rolls, since each roll has 450 sheets. (I'm sort of impressed they don't call it that, however)
This deal yields .16611 cents per sheet, and does not require any sort of recurring purchase. Plus, there is something to be said about the convenience of only having to change rolls every 450 sheets,
rather than 176, 190 or 264 sheets like some of the others I've seen. It means fewer times of having to sit there saying "Who left just two squares on the roll!!??"

Here are per sheet costs on some comparable toilet papers on various websites:

way to undo a hard credit pull?

Views: 123 Replies: 4 Hi,

My wife opened up a Gap credit card today. The problem is that we will likely buy a house in the next few months, and will take out a mortgage.

So we had the following questions:

1. How likely did Gap do a hard credit pull?
2. What impact will the pull have on our credit score used by lenders? We had a 780 score before.
3. Is there anyway to undo a hard credit pull?
4. What impact will a lowered credit score have on our fixed mortgage rate? I heard there was a threshold at 760 to get the best rates?

Thank you very much for any information.

Buying a Used Hyundai still under warranty
Added on : Saturday August 16th 2014 05:00:06 AM
g: 0 Posted By: cr3s
Views: 56 Replies: 3 I'm looking to buy a used Hyundai.

I know the warranty is reduced to 5/60,000 miles as a second owner. So, it still has manufacturer warranty. I've read that Hyundai is pretty stingy about honoring warranties and that you need meticulous documentation, like regular oil changes (not DIY).

Here are the specs:

Sold by a dealer.
Originally was a rental car. Was in the fleet for 13 months. It has about 25K miles on it.
It's been sitting on the dealer's used car lot for 4.5 months.
The dealer is about 250 miles away. I can get their via carshare or train.
Should I still get this car inspected by a mechanic? The last few times I've done so, I don't think they gave me my money's worth.

Anyone have experience buying cars unseen? I know i should have all the negotiations and paperwork singed before heading to pick up the car.
Any tips for negotiation, things to ask, things to be ware of?

Thanks,

PayPal Dispute Issue

Views: 96 Replies: 6 I'm having some trouble with PayPal disputes recently - over international deliveries to certain countries. I have had 3 disputes so far in which all the items were delivered, but they took 45 to 60 days for delivery.. and the recipients would open a dispute within 4-5 days of shipment. I would let PayPal know every time that they should wait for a few weeks and then make a decision (yeah right) but they close the dispute and refund the payment to the buyer.

I have insurance on all packages, but the insurance company has denied all claims, because tracking shows they were delivered. I filed an appeal with PayPal (after a dispute has closed, you can file an appeal if the shipment status changes) and I've 'won' all the appeals - but this is the outcome of the appeal -

Status
After careful review of the new information you provided, your appeal has been granted.

What happens next
Please contact the buyer to have the refund issued from your account returned to you."

What's the point of an appeal if PayPal doesn't reimburse the seller? Do they really think a buyer is going to return the money or the product?

What would fellow FWFers suggest in this case? Small claims? I have emailed their executive team multiple times and have received no response.

Dispute with Auto Dealer - Advice Needed
Added on : Thursday August 14th 2014 09:00:08 AM
g: 0 Posted By: cak144
Views: 38 Replies: 2 I have a dispute with an auto dealer over a pricing issue. The dealer is located 150 miles from me. Here is a condensed version of what transpired. They had a demo car advertised on their website for a certain price. I spoke over the phone to a salesman and told him that I wanted to purchase that specific vehicle. I told him that I lived 150 miles away and would be coming to pick up the vehicle the next day around 3 pm. He said that the vehicle would be waiting and ready for me at that time. Nothing was mentioned about selling the vehicle at anything other than the advertised price. I arrived at the dealership around 3 pm, met the salesman, and waited at his desk while he went back to the general manager's office where I saw him and 2 other men talking. After waiting at the salesman's desk for 20 minutes or so, I went back and asked if there were any problems. A gentleman came up to me, introduced himself as the general manager, and said that they were checking to make sure that all the rebates were compatible but that everything checked out. The salesman and the second gentleman came out shortly thereafter and started writing down some figures, coming up with a final price that was $1,000 higher than advertised on the website. I had a printout of the price on the website and showed it to him. He said that the vehicle in question had 2,010 miles on it for which General Motors would give the dealer an allowance of $500 but that the additional $1,000 would only be given once the vehicle reached 5,000 miles. I won't go into all the gory details of what transpired between myself and this gentleman and later the general manager, but it got a little heated. They never once said that this was a price mistake, only that they couldn't sell it at the advertised price because it didn't have 5,000 miles. In fact, in response to my question about why they advertised it for a lower price than they intended to sell it for, the general manager said, "because if we did, we wouldn't get anybody to come into our dealership". I went ahead and purchased the vehicle anyway because I had driven 150 miles and it was still slightly less than I could purchase it for locally - plus I intended to contest the issue with General Motors, etc once I got home.

I did complain to General Motors and wound up getting a $500 certificate for accessories. I went ahead and took it (even though I couldn't have cared less about getting $500 worth of accessories) since I figured that it might be the best that I could do. I also complained to the BBB who acted as an intermediary in several back and forth exchanges between the dealership and myself in which the dealership admitted no fault. I have a signed arbitration agreement with the dealer with the BBB as the arbitrator so I filed for arbitration. However, the dealership responded that they had no desire to submit to arbitration. Since they won't agree to arbitration, I next plan to sue them in small claims court and probably ask for treble damages since it was a willful act on their part to falsely advertise. Question - do I need to file in the dealership's jurisdiction or can I file in my jurisdiction? Both are in Illinois. Just for good measure, I will also probably file a claim with the Federal Trade Commission for a violation of the truth in advertising law.

I tried to make this as condensed as possible but it was hard to lay out all the pertinent information in fewer words. Any advice on this or a different course of action would be appreciated.

Best 0% APR for Purchases (International Travel)
Added on : Wednesday August 13th 2014 10:00:08 AM
g: 0 Posted By: CorradoJr
Views: 158 Replies: 0 Over the next 6-8 months, I will be travelling and knocking a few places off my bucket list. The goal is cost-conscious travel with a few "extras" thrown in. Typically I stay at smaller B&B/independent hotels, and like to go fairly far off the beaten path for a US traveler (Thailand, Iceland, Finland, Chile, Zambia, etc.).

I am seeking a card that offers a long 0% APR rate on purchases, and don't think a Airline Miles/Hotel partner card is worth it due to the fact that I will be using various air carriers to go around the world and not staying at "corporate" type hotels.

Citi Simplicity and Capital One Quicksilver look to have pretty good 0% APR rates on purchases. The goal is to pay off my trip in 12 months (or whenever the 0% expires) making the monthly mininum payment. While I'll make the airline purchases and hotel reservations in USD beforehand, the Capital One card sounds good once I am overseas as they do not incurForeign Transaction fees.

Any other ideas?

Capital One - Worst teller experience of my life
Added on : Monday August 11th 2014 01:00:07 PM
g: -2 Posted By: deeder
Views: 91 Replies: 4 Was banking at Capital One. Went into teller to deposit some cash and a check. A transaction which should have taken a few minutes tops took much longer. There were no deposit slips, just withdrawl slips all over so I ask teller if I can make a deposit telling her I don't see any deposit slips. Teller is like oh sorry we see your account has been blocked. And insists on having me mobile deposit the check in branch and had me deal with another person in the branch.

Very unfriendly experience. Service in past was acceptable. Nothing great but actually better than my experiences dealing with other institutions.

With all the banks around, not sure which other one to choose. I hear bad things on all of them combined. But which of the local NYC banks is the least evil where I can deposit CASH + Checks and do more complex international transactions?

TDBank has $100 min checking but seems to have loads of complaints. Citibank was horrific even though it was large. Same for HSBC.

Any suggestions on which the least evil one to use is? I keep funds in a high yielding APY account that is separate for higher yielding returns and a free checking account for local branch access.

Is TDBank which has the longest teller hours actually that bad where they will find a way to fee you hard or keep funds on hold?

Union Plus Prepaid Savings Account - 5.1% APY
Added on : Monday August 11th 2014 09:00:10 AM
g: 0 Posted By: MoogLiberation
Views: 32 Replies: 0 I searched and didn't find any threads that had answers to my questions and I just figured I'd throw them out there to the group. I'm looking to open an account with Union Plus and I have a few questions before I do so:

I don't plan on using the account for anything besides the savings account. Am I understanding it correctly that the monthly $2 fee is waived as long as you DD $500/month? So with the DD I wouldn't experience any fees, right?

I'm planning to fund the account with $5,000, so each month I would have to withdrawal roughly $530 (DD + monthly interest) if I want to keep it around that optimal $5,000 level. Is there any way to withdraw that kind of money without being charged another fee? I have a Mango account as well and am just asking for CashBack at the supermarket. Although I don't ask for nearly as much CashBack back, and I'm not sure if that same strategy would work.

If I decide not to do the DD and just eat the monthly fee, is there anything I have to do (like a small DD) just to keep the account active and open? Thanks.

Not only can you find your way through the wilderness with unerring precision regardless of weather, location, or time of day, you can work with computers and the World Wide Web to plan your outdoor adventures from home. You can record our trip in the field, download it to a computer, attach labels, graphics, elevation profiles, comments and photos, and then share it with friends or publish it for all to see on the Internet.

Starting a new App Business, Delaware or Maryland?
Added on : Friday August 08th 2014 05:00:07 AM
g: 0 Posted By: technolich
Views: 30 Replies: 0 So I'm in the process of starting a new LLC for an App I am working on with two partners that we are planning to launch in a few months.

Currently I live in Maryland with my partners both being in Virginia, I am trying to figure out whether to incorporate as an LLC in Maryland or Delaware.

From everything I've read Delaware is more business friendly but the drawback is that for most companies you need to register as a foreign entity in Maryland.

Would that still apply as an App company? Can't I just get a PO box in Delaware with mail forwarding so that I can get a business bank account in Maryland?

How much trouble would I get in for promoting my App in Maryland without a foreign entity certificate? They seem pretty expensive and make you jump through a bunch of hoops.

Should I just incorporate the LLC in Maryland? I see a lot of back and forth about incorporating in the state you reside versus Delaware and neither seem to have an edge, even though most businesses are in Delaware.
Best rates for balloon-type auto loan like PenFed Payment Saver?
Added on : Friday August 08th 2014 04:00:10 AM
g: 0 Posted By: AccelJunky
Views: 106 Replies: 1 Good morning,

My wife and I are trying to work the numbers on a his and hers car purchase (we are both in need of new ones) and I've used the PenFed payment saver balloon-type loan several times in the past with success...but I'm trying to do a little research on any alternatives that use the same model but with a better rate.

Right now they are doing 2.49% for up to 60mo on the payment saver. I've found a few obscure credit unions offering a similar balloon auto loan but with higher rates and with mileage limits.

I'm curious...has anyone seen anything recently like the PenFed deal but with a more competitive rate? I'm still busy digging through the corners of the internet but thought I would ask here to see if anyone has seen anything recently.

Thanks!

Methodology used to calculate FICO scores changing
Added on : Thursday August 07th 2014 08:00:04 PM
g: 0 Posted By: brettdoyle
Views: 67 Replies: 0 A change in how the most widely used credit score in the U.S. is tallied will likely make it easier for tens of millions of Americans to get loans.

Fair Isaac Corp. FICO -1.19% said Thursday that it will stop including in its FICO credit-score calculations any record of a consumer failing to pay a bill if the bill has been paid or settled with a collection agency. The San Jose, Calif., company also will give less weight to unpaid medical bills that are with a collection agency.

The moves follow months of discussions with lenders and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau aimed at boosting lending without creating more credit risk. Since the recession, many lenders have approved only the best borrowers, usually those with few or no blemishes on their credit report.

As of July, about 64.3 million consumers in the U.S. had a medical collection on their credit report, according to data from credit bureau Experian. And of the 106.5 million consumers with a collection on their report, 9.4 million had no balanceand won't be penalized under the new credit-score system.

FICO Recalibrates Its Credit Scores

Interesting... looks like lenders are running out of people to loan money to and reaching into the bottom of the barrel.

Paying off a collection may actually make sense now that it won't have an impact on your score... this may be useful for people negotiating debts in a situation where the creditor refuses to remove the tradeline.

You'll Be Rich in the Military - in Ways You Don't Think
Added on : Wednesday August 06th 2014 11:00:09 PM
g: 0 Posted By: rachelmark7922
Views: 79 Replies: 0 I hear "You'll never be rich being in the military" all the time, from lower enlisted to command level officers. The military perpetuates the mentality that we don't make that much money. I'd like to argue that we do make a lot, and that the military is an incredible steppingstone to the middle class.

When I got shipped off to boot camp, I was making about $400 every two weeks. I always thought to myself how much more I had made in the civilian world. But I wasn't taking into account what didn't show up in my paycheck. Here are 10 big financial benefits of serving in the military:

Training. Depending on your service and military occupational specialty, you'll get up to two years of training before reaching your first duty station. Much of this training translates straight into college credits -- and it looks great on a rsum.
Retirement. The military is one of the last employers in America to offer retirement plans. After serving a mere 20 years, service members can choose to separate with 50 percent of their base pay every month for the rest of their lives. If they're eligible, they can stay up to 30 years to receive 75 percent of their base pay, and high-grade officers can retire with 40 years to receive 100 percent.
Health care. While serving on active duty, service members and their families (spouse and children) will have free health care through Tricare so they are in the peak physical and medical condition they need for their jobs.
Dental. Dental is free for service members, because good oral hygiene is necessary to maintain a deployable status.
Commissary. The commissary is pretty much just an enormous grocery store, with better-than-WalMart (WMT) prices (most of the time). They also have enormous "lot sales" every so often where they have blowout prices of stuff you actually want.
Basic Allowance for Housing. When you're a low enlisted rank, they'll stick you in the barracks (or dorms in the Air Force). The barracks, as terrible as they may seem at the time, save you so much money it's incredible. Typically, they're in the same parking lot as your workplace, so the commute is eliminated. Utilities are included, too. And you don't need to write a check for rent and worry that you won't have enough money, because the basic allowance for housing is granted to all military members. The allowance also gives you the ability to rent a house off-base or to use base housing.
Tuition assistance. Depending on your branch of service, you could be eligible for up to $4,500 per year toward college classes. By taking full advantage of this, you could have an associates's degree in one enlistment and a bachelor's in two. And don't forget that you could earn college credit for your training through the College-Level Examination Program or Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support.
The GI Bill. Typically used after separation, the GI Bill allows you to go to college at no extra cost to you. During the first year of your service, you will pay $100 per month toward the GI Bill. After that, you owe nothing. Service members can choose among two versions (the Montgomery GI Bill and the Post 9/11 GI Bill), and there is a way to get a few extra free credit hours if you switch between them in a specific way. It's also transferable to your spouse or children, although you need to serve at least four extra years after the election has been made.
Thrift Savings Plan. If a pension plan wasn't enough, military members have access to the retirement savings plan, with a traditional and Roth option. It bases allocations on stock indexes and has extremely low operating costs -- read: very, very low expense ratios.
Veterans Affairs loans. VA loans resemble Federal Housing Administration loans -- with a few awesome advantages. These include no down payment and no mortgage insurance requirement. They also usually let you have access to the best current rates available. And you maintain this benefit for life. Married to another service member? Then you each get your own VA loan to use.
Other benefits include military discounts (thank you business owners!), networking (you'll meet hundreds, if not thousands of people during your tour), experience (management and occupational), VA benefits and free simple income tax filings.

I'm not advocating that you join the military for financial reasons, but I am trying to highlight some of the financial perks that you wouldn't see in your paycheck.

Why do people blow money?
Added on : Wednesday August 06th 2014 08:00:09 PM
g: 0 Posted By: timgodsil
Views: 41 Replies: 3 I know I am probably opening a can of worms here, but I cannot fathom the sheer amount of consumerism that takes place today.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Understanding DSLR Lenses will painlessly provide help and insight into the often confusing and intimidating world of DSLR Camera Lenses. The ability to change lenses is one of the greatest strengths of the DSLR camera but Lens Selection requires some insight. If you get serious about photography, you will spend much more money on Lenses than Cameras. The good news is that Lenses retain their value over decades and can often be used on with each new camera release. Some Lenses designed for film cameras can still be used on their digital counterparts. A wise Lens purchase will dramatically improve the quality of your images.

Digital Cameras dont have to be intimidating. The underlying principles are surprisingly simple but rarely presented in laymans terms. Like any other area of specialization, photography has its own language. Fortunately, you only need to understand a few of terms and concepts to get started.

This guide to PHOTOGRAPHY BASICS builds a solid foundation of photographic knowledge with easy-to-follow discussions of everything that you need to know in order to get started with confidence. Every photographic term used in the book is clearly defined and thoroughly explained. All terms are also highlighted by using BOLD CAPS so that you can easily find them again to refresh your memory.

This Photographic Guide will take the mystery out of digital cameras, camera choices, and Photographic Jargon.

This book is filled with charts, illustrations and photos that take the discussion to new levels. You will not only understand the terminology and techniques discussed, but you will have a much better understanding of how your camera works and what is actually happening when you make adjustments. The charts and photos should help you to retain what you learn and put it to good use immediately.

Advice on balance transfer misadvice from the bank.

g: 0 Posted By: inac
Views: 49 Replies: 0 I took out a 0% (August 2014) balance transfer for the first time earlier last year, then took another one at 1.99% (August 2015).I budgeted to pay down the 0% by its expiration date, but it looks like the funds were mostly going into my 1.99% (August 2015). Now that the 0% expiration date has come, it looks like the 1.99% is done, but the 0% still needs to be paid.When I asked a bank agent how this worked a few months ago, they explained that the payment would go towards the first expiring, and they did not mention anything about the one with the higher percentage. I specifically asked about my payments as well. This was through chat, so there's a transcript.

Ideally, I would like the funds to go towards the first expiring, as the bank rep said it should work. However, on looking at the fine print, apparently the caveat went to the one with the higher percentage. So, if that's the case... I'm kind of screwed.Any advice on how to proceed with this?

Views: 1260 Replies: 48 I'm in a unique situation and wanted to get your advice on what I should be doing financially. I have my own ideas but I'll keep that to myself right now because I want to hear your unbiased suggestions. I'm 30 years old and was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in November. I haven't been given any kind of definitive prognosis, but for those that don't know, there isn't a cure for brain cancer and I've been told a pretty wide range in regards to prognosis that ranges anywhere from a few years up to 30 years (thankfully my biopsy results showed that it is very slow growing, so there is some hope). Anyways, here's a few other details about me: I live (rent) in NYC so the cost of living is pretty high. I'm on a commission based salary so it's hard to give an exact figure, but let's say I'm making about $120k/year. I got married last year and don't currently have any kids although they are in the near term plans. Also, I didn't have a life insurance policy before aside from the one I have through my work that is only equal to 1X my salary. There is an option to ramp that up as high as 8X my salary, but I couldn't do that until open enrollment in the fall and I don't even know if I would be able to do that now given my diagnosis. I'd love to hear of any other ideas you may have regarding life insurance though.

Some specifics about my financial situation:

$60k cash in savings
$0 credit card balance
$7,400 federal student loans at 2.1%. Yeah, that's not a typo. I'm currently just paying the minimum on the balance and just plan on riding it out.
$20k in Roth IRA invested in S&P500 ETF.
$60k in 401k. I just changed this recently to be about 70% invested in short duration taxable bonds, and 30% in an S&P500 ETF.

So what would you guys be doing if you were me? The old me pre-brain cancer would have had at least $50k of that $60k cash that's in my savings account invested in something like an S&P500 ETF but I'm hesitant to do anything that has that kind of risk associated with it now. Please let me know if any other details would help. I think I covered it all.

I'd be grateful for any and all ideas. Thanks guys.

Edit: A few more details:

I was already on short-disability for 3 months while I was receiving and recovering from radiation and chemo. Surprisingly, I was very responsible and elected to pay for the extra long-term disability insurance which pay 60% of my salary.

I have pretty good private health insurance with an out of pocket maximum of $1,650 that I literally hit on January 2nd because I was receiving radiation and chemo at the time. I maxed out my FSA at $2,500 for the year as well.

I have no idea what kind of benefits I would be entitled to through SSA/SSI. Does anyone know how I can figure that out?

Aluminum Commercial Stack Chaise Lounge at Sam's $46.81 YMMV
Added on : Sunday August 03rd 2014 03:00:02 PM
g: 0 Posted By: Brew
Views: 123 Replies: 0 My wife has been watching these chase lounge chairs at Sam's all summer. They are normally $120, but if you order on line and pick up in store, the price can be much lower. For giggles I checked the chairs online last night and they were out of stock at my closest Sam's, but when I checked a few more stores, a few had them in stock for as low as $46.81. One store had them for $70, one for $99.

So, a big YMMV, but worth checking the link and check all the local stores in your area. When we went to the store, they were still priced at $120, but had zero issues grabbing a couple and paying the $46.xx from my online receipt. Seem to be pretty good quality, and the reviews are very good. But one negative was that the chairs rub on each other and wear through the paint. We did have this problem with ours, but we aren't too concerned. They are aluminum, so lightweight and no concern about rust. For those in my area, Bloomington, MN had a bunch on hand for the $46.xx, Fridley, MN has them for $48.xx, in stock in a few others, but more expensive. You need to order online and pick up in store, to get the price. You don't pay until you pick up.

Views: 127 Replies: 6 I'm in a unique situation and wanted to get your advice on what I should be doing financially. I have my own ideas but I'll keep that to myself right now because I want to hear your unbiased suggestions. I'm 30 years old and was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in November. I haven't been given any kind of definitive prognosis, but for those that don't know, there isn't a cure for brain cancer and I've been told a pretty wide range in regards to prognosis that ranges anywhere from a few years up to 30 years (thankfully my biopsy results showed that it is very slow growing, so there is some hope). Anyways, here's a few other details about me: I live (rent) in NYC so the cost of living is pretty high. I'm on a commission based salary so it's hard to give an exact figure, but let's say I'm making about $120k/year. I got married last year and don't currently have any kids although they are in the near term plans. Also, I didn't have a life insurance policy before aside from the one I have through my work that is only equal to 1X my salary. There is an option to ramp that up as high as 8X my salary, but I couldn't do that until open enrollment in the fall and I don't even know if I would be able to do that now given my diagnosis. I'd love to hear of any other ideas you may have regarding life insurance though.

Some specifics about my financial situation:

$60k cash in savings
$0 credit card balance
$7,400 federal student loans at 2.1%. Yeah, that's not a typo. I'm currently just paying the minimum on the balance and just plan on riding it out.
$20k in Roth IRA invested in S&P500 ETF.
$60k in 401k. I just changed this recently to be about 70% invested in short duration taxable bonds, and 30% in an S&P500 ETF.

So what would you guys be doing if you were me? The old me pre-brain cancer would have had at least $50k of that $60k cash that's in my savings account invested in something like an S&P500 ETF but I'm hesitant to do anything that has that kind of risk associated with it now. Please let me know if any other details would help. I think I covered it all.

I'd be grateful for any and all ideas. Thanks guys.

note: i will not be doing these rebates because i'm a little hesitant about the rebate processor and personally i don't have much experience purchasing from TigerDirect. However, if you've had good experience with these rebates, by all means go for it. I just have a few bad times with the processor. (to be fair, i've probably done hundreds of rebates, so YMMV)

Hope this might help someone. Thank you for reading.

Credit Card Bonuses: The Last AOR
Added on : Friday August 01st 2014 07:00:13 AM
g: 0 Posted By: alamo11
Views: 97 Replies: 1 Okay: So now that my friend closed on his new home and did his refi (see my previous thread for that whole fiasco) it's time to do the last AOR before he quits paying on his old house (I'll make a thread about how to REALLY piss off a banks loss mit department). It's been YEARS since I did an AOR so I need FWFs advise on what cards to get. His wallet consists of just a few cards. I also have permission to AOR is wife so I can double up on everything.

Details:
HHI 150k
800+ Credit
22 Mortgage related inquiries and zero on others
3 Mortgage related inquires and zero on others for his wife.

Current Cards:
Costco AMEX
Old Discovery with 1/2% CashBack or something crazy like that
BOA Travel Card
A few store cards

Purpose:
He's planning to do some travel early next year to South America. I plan to use some of the earnings here to book some of the required travel for that. That being said cash and gift cards are also welcomed.


The Plan:
Since short term credit is going to be trashed anyways I can do as I please on this AOR. I have an easy way to do 50k+ in spending on the cards so min spending requirements are absolutely not an issue.
So far I have only chosen a few cards I plan to do. I plan to do this Monday morning so that gives me some time to plan.

Future Cards:
1.CP { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { }iti Aadvantage 75k offer http://www.aa.com/i18n/disclaimers/BP-ACExec-75K.jspP { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { }iti Advantage 75k Offer. My understanding is you can do one citi app every seven? days so I plan to do one card and come back in a week and do another.
2. Cap 1 Venture cards. C1 limits one app per 30 days so if I do both the venture and both the Spark cash cards back to back I can get them through. I've tested this with other C1 products and it worked (on my credit)
3. Barclays Arrival+ Card
4. Chase Sapphire Preferred
