Frequently asked questions about best California cash advance

  • I was told that if i purchased more than a dollar amount i would get a store rebate, well i mailed in for it and never received it. ive moved around and forgot about it,its been a while.i just remember about it and like to act on it now. but before look like a fool, or go to small claims. what is the statue of limitation? 2nd question, what is the statue of limitation on a personal loan, given in check? not repaid yet? Thank you in advance
  • You might just as well forget about the rebate. By your own admission you have moved around so the issuer could make the argument that the rebate was sent, possibly even cashed by the new tenant. The loan would depend on the agreement, if it was an oral agreement or oral contract the statute of limitations is 2 years, if it is a written agreement or contract the statute is 4 years. The time starts at the time of breach, not from the date of the loan. What I mean is that if you borrowed money on Jan. 1, 2000 and made 6 payments, with the last payment being July 1, 2000 the 2 or 4 years starts on August 1, 2000
  • A "statute of limitation" is the time after something has occurred that you can sue. I don't think that is what you are asking about. I think you really want to know if there is any law regarding the time-frame for rebates to occur. That is a private transaction, so it's really up to whatever you agreed to when you accepted the offer of the rebate. Of course, if there was no specified time-period, that's bad, but I am sure you could make a case in a court if that the time is "unreasonable". I would think that you would have to wait at least 90 days before it could be considered "unreasonable", but it would really be up to the judge. If it is then declared to have not been paid in that reasonable amount of time, you then would have up to the "statute of limitations" to sue. Don't know what it is in California, but it's probably at least a year. The longer the better, for you.
  • Your odds of making it are pretty good. Maintenance is more important than mileage on older cars, trucks & SUV's. However.......as a veteran of 1,000,000 miles on the highways and back roads of America....many of which I logged in 100K plus older vehicles....here are three things to remember: 1) A credit card......even if it is borrowed from a family member. (Emergency funds for break downs or weather delays.) 2) Cash ( or travelers cheques)....figure at least $100/day over and above gasoline purchases. This is particularly true if you do not have a credit card. Food can be expensive and it is better to have it and not need it. Gasoline costs change all the time...but be conservative and say 1500 miles (one way) at 15mpg....that's 100 gallons....at $2.50/gal......totals $250.....each way. 3) I mentioned 'back roads'. If you have the time....you will never regret exiting I-40 several times and taking the time to really see America. Small towns, rivers & mountains, the Grand Canyon....even bigger cities...can make a long road trip into a life time memory. The late great Charles Kuralt...of CBS' On the Road'..and CBS' Sunday Morning said: "Thanks to our magnificant interstate highway system it is possible to travel border to border and sea to shining sea WITHOUT SEEING ANYTHING." If you can.......take the roads less travelled. GOOD LUCK & ENJOY THE JOURNEY!
  • Yes it should make it. However as in life there are no guarantees. 236,000 miles sound like you have only just broken it in and now you are ready for really using it. If you have kept up with the maintenance, and all is good working order, it will be like driving from Memphis to another city over the Interstates. It is just that this one will take a bit longer. Stop for some rest breaks for yourself and your car. It can only help you along the way. Good Luck and Enjoy!
  • Get it serviced before you go. The dealer or repair shop can evaluate the car better than anybody here.
  • If your car is in good shape, I don't see why not under normal circumstances.
  • I worked at a hotel about 2 1/2 yrs. ago. It was a rule to get ID's from guests except for guest we already knew or that were in the system already. My boss had a rule that when any young kids came to get a room, we had to have their ID especially if they were paying cash. That way if they had a party we would at least have one persons information on file to charge for any vandalism. Now if you do not have a State ID or a drivers license, what kind of ID do you have? A Military ID may be ok, also possibly a Credit Card with the picture on it. I know some credit card companies are doing that now. Or just go to the DMV and get a state ID it only takes like 20 minutes and $5.00 i think. try calling the hotel and stating your problem....but i believe that they are going to tell you that someone who is registering needs to have an ID. maybe if you are going with someone have him/her register instead of you.
  • for sure yes, only with your passport if you are from other country, if you have an American passport yes!!, but if you want to make a reservation at the hotel u have to show some valid id with you picture on it and must be match with your credit card and the top of the valid ID is the American Driver License , and fallowing with the American passport and then u passport if you are not American. If you do by the Internet u can do it but again we need the ID of the person who own the credit card. Otherwise if you pay in full like in Expedia and u add a guest, well again the guest needs a valid ID.
  • I'm not quite sure what the rules are in CA, but whenever I rent a room the only thing they ask me for is a credit card.
  • I am doing a project at school. the company i have selected is Micrel. Im slightly above average when using a computer but i do not really understand HOW a computer works. i get the 1-0 yes-no concept but it blows my mind at how you could create such a complex machine with just that. I know that Micrel makes semiconductors but can i get a summary of what they do in terms that an average person could understand. Also if you could tell me anything else about micrel that would be helpful.

  • I saw the cover page of the Globe today. They issued an ultimatum for the unions to give in with certain issues like "lifetime guarantees" to stay at the Globe. Teachers unions are ruining the education system. Administration officials simply are strapped with not enough cash and it costs too much to fire a teacher if you even get that far. Such rules like you have to warn a teacher 3 days in advance before the principal comes in to watch the glass are outrageous. That does not test the effectiveness of the teacher, just how well they can completely BS a lecture. How?
  • First off If I were you, I would be reading the "Globe" since it is a yellow rag anyways. Unions only represent 12.5% of the total work force in the United States. The US have 22 states that has the right to work laws , most of them in the south. Take a look at the education system of the southern states, they rank the bottom 10 states in education quality compare to some of the "Unionized" states like Illinois, New York, and California
  • Actually, aside from the UAW or teamsters, unions have very little power anymore, especially in a poor economy. Companies treat their workers to good today for them to have any thunder anymore. God bless.
  • They became powerful by way of proxy. The management groups that negotiate with unions were more concerned about instant profits rather than long-term sustainability. happens all the time.
  • Because during the industrial revolution, industry screwed the worker down too far. So, it was easy to organize a rebellion.
  • an alliance with the mafia, at least that's how the teamsters did it...the afl-cio has been a wholly owned subsidiary of the mob
  • They made a deal with the Mafia.
  • Mafia money.
  • Hello there, My name is Carrie and I graduated from NHI back in June of '09. The tuition is less than $14,000 and let me just say it is worth EVERY penny! It is about the same price you will get anywhere but the education and experience is priceless. The program is either 10 or 12 months depending on the times you choose to go to school. Yes it is 720 hours which is over 200 more hours then you will get somewhere else. There is no other program like NHI's and it is the best and widely known massage school in California! For me, choosing NHI was the best choice of my life. I loved my experience so much that I am continuing my education in the Advanced Neuromuscular class, also I am a Teaching assistant and I have the priveledge of working there part time. I would not take back a minute of my time at NHI and I try to keep myself connected in every way that I can! :) I hope you choose NHI and have just as excellent experience as I did! If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me! cshreevemt@yahoo.com
  • They charge you as much as you'll pay them, just like any other con artists.
  • Sales tax, registration fee, title transfer fee,doc fee and can pass on smog charge. Edit sales tax is 8% plus transfer is around $17 registration (if not current) could be $300+ smog around $35 no smog needed if less than 4yrs old doc fee is variable, maybe $125 pure profit and negotiable.
  • Look on the window sticker and see if the following fees are included: Transportation, preparation (detailing). If it is, then the other costs would be for taxes, license, title, registration and insurance. I don't know what the tax rate is in California, but let's say it is 6%. $11,000 @ 6% = $660. That puts it at $11,660. Then add the rest and it could add up to around $12,500 - $12,750. Find out what the license, registration and insurance would be, add the current tax rate and you will have a more accurate figure of the purchase.
  • u have to pay tax pay for the title transfer and to register it.
  • Well, from what I can find online, it was actually the treaty of guadalupe-hidalgo. --The Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo-- When the Mexican commissioners made advances for peace at the beginning of the year 1848, they were given terms almost as liberal as those offered them before Scott had stormed and occupied their capital. By the treaty concluded at Guadalupe-Hidalgo, February 2, 1848, Mexico was required to cede California and New Mexico to the United States and to recognize the Rio Grande as the southern and western boundary of Texas. In return, the United States paid Mexico $15,000,000 cash and assumed some $3,250,000 more in claims of American citizens on the Mexican government. Considering the facts that California was scarcely under Mexican control at all and might have been taken at any moment by Great Britain, France, or Russia; that New Mexico was still the almost undisturbed home of Indian tribes; that the land from the Nueces to the Rio Grande was almost a desert; and that the American troops were in possession of the Mexican capital, the terms offered Mexico were very generous. Polk was urged by many to annex the whole country of Mexico to the United States, but he refused to consider such a proposal.
  • You assume incorrectly.
  • you'll never need it in your entire life! don't bother!
  • do your own homework.
  • do you have any helpful tips? I am originally from California (been living in GA for 3 yrs. and hate it - no offense, but the weather is horrible!) so now that I have a small family, I have possessions now, and I was wondering if any one had any helpful moving tips. We are renting a Budget truck, and towing one car, while one of us will be driving our other car. Any tips/advice is welcomed. I will be moving w/in the next month and I have already been packing winter clothes labeling everything as I go. Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer!
  • I moved from VA to San Diego a while back so I can give you some things from my experience. Check the route ahead of time and have a general plan of how far you want to get each day, and plan where you want to stop every night. When you get to long stretches of highway, especially in desert areas, top off the gas tank regardless of how full it is already. Don't want to get stuck out there. Make sure you have a lock for the Budget truck, and take the car you are driving in for a quick tune-up/check up. Keep extra oil in the car as well. Keep a cell phone charged. Consider putting more fragile or expensive items in the car being driven, and take that stuff into the hotel room with you at night. Keep cash on hand for any possible tolls. Keep a small cooler with ice and drinks to minimize your stops. That's all I have for now. Safe travels.
  • Haha, I moved from Long Beach to Georgia. Worst mistake of my life. Georgia weather isn't good. I agree, but never-the-less that's not why i've come to talk to you. Coming from California to Georgia, I noticed a HUGE DIFFERENCE. Georgia traffic is no where as bad as the traffic in LA or San Diego. The prices and taxes are much more than they are in Georgia, so get ready for that. When you pack up and drive to California, be sure to have multiple drivers, snacks, and good company. It's a 3 to 4 day drive across the US. Pack sleeping bags in your trunk for when you look for a hotel. Just find a cheap motel off the highway with one bed, have your other roadies sleep on the floor, or if you're selfless, give somebody else the bed. When you get there, make sure to make lots of friends, the people of California are very talented and willing to help out. Stay with your friends and relatives for the first night so you don't have to spend any on a hotel when you arrive. That's about it. And just have fun. It may be a long drive, but it's sure worth it.

  • We’ll be back when the rain comes, they say, pulling away with all they own, straining the springs of their motor cars. Don’t forget us. And so they go, fleeing the blowing dust, fleeing the fields of brown-tipped wheat barely ankle high, and sparse as the hair on a dog’s belly. We’ll be back, they say, pulling away toward Texas, Arkansas, where they can rent a farm, pull in enough cash, maybe start again. We’ll be back when it rains, they say, setting out with their bedsprings and mattresses, their cookstoves and dishes, their kitchen tables, and their milk goats tied to their running boards3 in rickety cages, setting out for California, where even though they say they’ll come back, they just might stay if what they hear about that place is true. Don’t forget us, they say. But there are so many leaving, how can I remember them all? Ok here are the two questions 1.In “Migrants,” why do the family’s neighbors move? 2.What effects might their decision have on the people who stay behind? Please help with these two questions! Thx a lot in advance! :D
  • They are victims of the "dust bowl" which hit mostly Oklahoma in the 30's. In order to farm they had plowed up the prarie grass which held the thin layer of topsoil in place, and it blew away in a draught. Their crops failed (wheat in normal times grows up over your knees (see line 9), and they heard rumors of better places elsewhere in the country. In California they became known as "Oakies", were in general despised because of their poverty, and many didn´t improve their situation.... They also might think of moving, or they might possibly get a better price for whatever crops they could raise since with less wheat on the market, prices might rise. Their community as a whole might suffer because of the loss of friends and neighbors. They might feel pessimistic about the possibility of a stable life, as well as sad to see old friends leave, probably for good.
  • Please don't judge. I'm a college student and in need of extra cash, but due to my hectic schedule I'm unable to have a full time job. I plan on investing some money on adult toys because from what I have researched so far, they sell pretty well online. However, I would eventually like to sell to my friends and perhaps other college students. I can make my own schedule and have flexible hours. I do not know if I need some sort of permit or license. And, if I do, where would I even get one? Could anyone with experience please point me in the right direction and give me your opinion on this type of business? Is it worth the investment? Obviously I do not want to make this a permanent source of income, or plan on opening up a company. I have about 5 more years of school left that I'm hoping I can get through, financially. I can keep my GPA up to qualify for scholarships as long as I can focus more on school and less on my finances. Any other advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  • If you were doing the selling at events, you would need a mobile sellers permit. In Wisconsin and Pennsylvania the cost for that is $15 and it automatically renews free each year. You file a Schedule C with your tax forms indicating the money made with the business. Check what a mobile sellers permit would cost in California, a google check would get that for you. Selling from home online is dealt with the same as any eBay or Etsy account. At the end of the year you add up what the income was and put it on your tax forms as 'extra income'. You pay taxes on it. It's treated as a yard sale, rummage sale or other occasional hobby income. You don't need a mobile sellers permit because you're not having sales at shows, events, selling from a kiosk or any other semi-permanent place. You also do not have a physical store in a mall or 'brick and mortar' freestanding store of any sort (your home is not part of this). The 'key' is that any sales in your state need to have sales tax paid on the sale. That's all the state is interested in getting. Hobby businesses don't take many deductions on the tax forms, if you move past the 'hobby' classification then you have to have the tax preparer figure out what you owe for self employment tax, which starts getting complicated.
  • A friend of mine - a good friend - approached me about 20 years ago as to whether I wanted to invest as a partner in the adult store he was opening with another partner. I said that money or no I just didn't want to be a part of that world. They are doing quite well and I have no regrets. Think about Hunch's question about sitting in class, and also turn it around - Will people want to sit next to the guy who sells sex toys? Me, I love sex and I'm far from prudish. That's different from pimping or whatever you want to call it. FYI - I don't TD - ever.
  • To sell in California, you are going to need: a sellers permit = this will allow you to purchase items wholesale and report sales tax if you are using any name to sell the items besides your legal name, you will need a "doing business as". I'm not as optimistic that you will be able to earn the amount of money that you think you can. You say "you will eventually" sell to your friends and other college students. How will you sell before that? A website? do you know how much it would cost to get any SEO traction in the sex toys industry? $100,000 easily. And then how are you going to compete with the big guys, like Adam & Eve? Do people want to purchase their sex toys from a guy they sit next to in class? Probably, not so much
  • • Washington ranks 12th in the nation in terms of total agricultural cash receipts, but is second only to California in the diversity of crops grown (about 230 different ones). • Washington’s highest dollar crop is apples. This state produces 57% of all the apples in the nation at a farmgate value of $1.75 billion. • Milk is the second most valuable agricultural commodity, followed by wheat, potatoes, and cattle and calves. • Washington leads the nation in the production of several crops: 92% of all raspberries are raised here, 77% of all hops, 75% of the nation’s supply of spearmint oil, 51% of sweet cherries, 46% of concord grapes, 46% of pears, 41% of all peppermint oil, and 38% of all prunes and plums. • Other crops grown include: barley, alfalfa hay, corn, lentils, onions, wine grapes, apricots, peaches, canola, garbanzo beans, blueberries, aquaculture, forest products, and many varieties of vegetable seed. • Washington also produces oysters, mussels, clams, geoducks, and trout.
  • I stumbled onto a site called RealtyTrac.com and was able to find a dozen or so homes in my town that are in pre-foreclosure. There is a seven day trial (which gives you the home info, along with contact info in case you want to directly get ahold of the home owner). I know very little about this, but the balance of these homes are SO LOW! I wonder, does anyone have any experience in dealing with pre-foreclosures? Is it worth the effort in trying to "buy out" the current owner... is it even possible for the "ordinary person" to do?? Thanks in advance for your help!
  • I am a real estate broker and investor in Southern California. I use this company as one of many sources for pre-foreclosure listings. I find that most of their info is outdated, but because of the foreclosure timeline in California, that is ok with me. Now, to understand what the numbers mean and how you could use this info to your advantage, I suggest you read a book called "Quick Cash In Foreclosures" by Carey. In my personal opinion, it's much better to buy out the equity of an owner or walk into a home by taking over the payments instead of paying retail prices for a home and find traditional financing. Especially if you find a pre-foreclosure in which the owner's loan is from 2002 with a low interest rate. I must warn you, it is hard work to locate a willing owner and negotiate a deal, but it's worth it. The only downside is, you have to fall in love with the numbers and not the house. However, a smart person would consider that as an upside. ;) Also, unless you're good at determining value of a home, I suggest you work with someone that does. Find one that knows about non-traditional home ownership and knows what contracts to use and how to obtain the property. The book should help. Regards
  • Don't waste your time on "pre-foreclosures" or RealtyTrac. I tried them out before buying my home and all of their info was outdated. Not one single listing I inquired about was accurate.
  • Yes, hello My name is Tamisha, I am a real estate agent-investor in Michigan. I have purchased a exclusive site from them and have found that the information is unbelievable. I it worth the small investment because it is all about what you do with it
  • This is highly speculative. If you have intimate knowledge of real estate law and practices in your area it might be worth it. If not, stay away!
  • I'm going to learn how to drive this year, and I'm going to college next year. I decided that I want to go to college in California. I was thinking about paying for a personal auto transport, but I just love road trips. Well, I never been on most road trips, but just the thought of going from coast to coast is frickin awsome to me. I'm 18 now, but I'll be 19 by next year, what should I expect? How much money should I bring? GPS? Please inform me, thank you.
  • I would suggest doing a *lot* of driving this year if you are planning to do a 1500 mile road trip next year. Get used to your car and driving on highways and local roads. See how long you can stand driving at a stretch. When I was about your age I could drive for about 4 hours before my legs started to get really uncomfortable. If you plan to do 500 miles in a day that is 8-10 hours of driving per day. Get books on tape/CD, they make driving long distances *much* more pleasant. If your car does not have cruise control you are going to have a rough time! AAA or some other repair service is also a good idea. Figure out your route in advance and see what things are in the area. I would *not* just take I-80. There are far more interesting routes with more fun things to do. Last time I drove my wife and I would stop at the border of each new state at the Visitor's Center and pick up a map and a hotel book. We would find inexpensive hotels when we were ready to stop for the night and they usually cost around $50/60 per night. Be aware of any special events that might affect hotel availability. We ran into the Sturgis Motocycle Rally near Mount Rushmore and there were *NO* hotel rooms available in all of South Dakota, and most of North Dakota, Nebraska, and Wyoming. Not good to find out at 8:00 p.m. :) We tried to eat at a 'local' joint at least once a day and avoid typical fast food chains as much as possible. Costs depend on what kind of hotels you stay in, how much gas your car uses, and where you like to eat. All can be estimated, then tack on some additional cash for attractions. You should be able to find most of the information you need for a budget online. Have a great trip!
  • you definitely would need a GPS. Also estimate about how far you would like to travel each day. Check out www.savytravelers.com for competitive lodging prices as well as attractions if you're going to go sight seeing between NY and CA. I find it helpful to plot down and have a hotel reserved for me when I get there rather then looking for motels along the way. Also since it's summer, (I'm not sure if the current recession effects it) some lodging in popular places get book really quickly so for the sake of not having a place to stay after a day's driving, I would book some where to lodge before I head out =)
  • sure you can make it. i guess it depends on what condition your vehicle is in. money is a personal matter. do you want to get there as fast as possible or take your time? sights along the way, what do you eat? forget the gps, it is truly useless. get a road atlas and choose a route. it is a fun ride no matter how you go. i always keep $100 emergency money hidden away. just be sure to keep the windows cracked for fresh air and stop every time you fill up to stretch.
  • Jump on I-80 west and put her in cruise. New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, California. Great trip but very expensive
  • figure on five hundred miles a day...safely,figure you will need about 60 per day for gas,100 per day for lodging and another forty five per day for meals....you will not need a gps its all interstate....great trip by the way..i have done it four times
  • 1. Despite the fastest growing economy on the planet, people in rural areas (where population growth rate is very high despite the "one-child policy" -- which, incidentally, has always been a failure) are poor and cannot get jobs. The US has always been called "Gold Mountain" - a place to get easy money, and lots of it. 2. It is a prestige thing among the younger and more affluent. When they return they get much better jobs and more money. 3. Triads make billions of dollars smuggling in illegal aliens -- they pay up to $60,000 in US dollars in cash in advance to be smuggled in. This is where the big easy money lies. 4. The Chinese gov't sends a lot of people here for school, business - and they are here to spy, steal trade secrets and technology. They do not come here because they want to have another baby (unless its a ticket to welfare) because they can (and do) do that in China. I have personally seen families with as many as 9 children, all born after the "one child policy" was instituted. When I was in China in 1990, they published their 1990 census results and reported that their "baby count" was off by over 100 million - they had 100 million-plus more babies born since the 1980 census than they thought had been born between 1980-1990. Chain migration: once one comes in, they bring in all their parents, siblings and their spouses, aunts & uncles, nieces and nephews -- the whole clan. "Communism" is meaningless to them - the Chinese culture revolves solely around money.
  • The Chinese government has been organizing this massive invasion to position these spies strategically. China is planning on toppling the US as world leader and superpower. These Chinese spies in are here in the US working in the interests of their motherland. These Chinese are very good at finding loopholes and weakness in the American system. And they have turned all-American towns into Chinatown almost overnight. Just go the the San Gabriel Valley in California to see for yourself. They have been able to destroy the elegance of San Mario and Arcadia and turn these cities into trashy cities, ones that resemble the typical Chinatown's feel and look.
  • The US is still a free country, and Communism is still oppression. Plus, have you heard about the human rights issues in that country? The US is still a desirable place to live, despite our problems. California is also a great melting pot for all immigrants. There is a sense of home, but it is also America.
  • Because it's really not that great in China despite what their hokey government would have people believe. But hey, look at the bright side: the Chinese keep to themselves and work hard. Unlike other communities I could name, in California or elsewhere.
  • China's freedomhouse scores for last year were worse than Iran. That means China is less free than a religious theocracy.
  • They do the same as if a Mexican visits China. They communicate to each other in English.
  • China still is behind in standard of living especially in rural areas. Overcrowded and polluted.
  • there coming over here because this is where the money is plus you know u.s. is very lucky we have so much freedom that other countryies want its not funny and they want some of that freedom and also they having a big issue over there about there human rights alright peace aka spider-man
  • My husband works in IT. He says there are a lot of Chinese people working in his company on H1 visas. They were basically imported here to work. They are very nice people and very smart!
  • Have you been to China? You can barely breath. let alone even move around because of so many people.
  • I drove from Miami to LA in 2004 and loved every minute of it. What I would suggest you take is plenty of drinking water as you can quickly get dehydrated whilst in the car. Also be sure to have lots of credit on your mobile phone and some spare cash on your credit card in case of an emergency. I would also recommend you know which hotel you will be staying in advance as you really don't want to be looking for a place to stay as it is getting dark, having already driven for 6 hours or so.
  • When I was about 7 or 8 years old I was in a car accident. And as a result I received a sum of money, that was put away into a bank account for me until I turned 18. When I turned 18 my mom asked about my bank account and was then told that it was turned over to the state because of inactivity. The bank never notified us. Well I contacted the state and just my luck, it could not be located. I am now 21 and I have no idea about what to do to get my money. Can someone please help?! Thanks in advance. :)
  • Sounds like you will have to do some investigative work. First, what state are you in? Every state has online ways to look for this information. Wikipedia has an article titled : "Lost, mislaid, and abandoned property" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost,_misla...which says In the United States, the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws sought to address the problems arising from these types of property through provisions of the Uniform Unclaimed Property Act. The act was first drafted and promulgated in 1981 and was revised in 1995. The act specifically focuses on the problem of unclaimed money in bank accounts and corporate coffers, and the escheatment thereof. As a result of the Act, each state operates an Unclaimed Property fund in which the proceeds from abandoned bank accounts, unpresented checks, etc. are to be turned over to the state after a specified period of time. Depending on state law, the money may be held either in perpetuity (i.e., the funds never escheat to the state; an example would be Texas), or after a long period of time (whereby it is presumed that the owner is deceased with no heirs) the funds will escheat to the state. Due to the increasing mobility of the population, the vast majority of states have joined together to operate MissingMoney.com, a searchable database which lists unclaimed funds for several states. ===== Escheat means : In some jurisdictions, escheat can also occur when an entity, typically a bank, credit union or other financial institution, holds money or property which appears to be unclaimed, for instance due to a lack of activity on the account by way of deposits, withdrawals or any other transactions for a lengthy time in a cash account. In many jurisdictions, if the owner cannot be located, such property can be revocably escheated to the state. Look at the last five words "revocably escheated to the state" "Revocably" means the state has to give the money to the rightful owner. However, that's all the information available by Wikipedia. The website mentioned in the Wikipedia article, MissingMoney.com http://www.missingmoney.com/has a link to a website operated by the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators: http://www.unclaimed.org/where you can also look for your property.
  • hard stuff. look into on to search engines like google. this could actually help!
  • I was at a parking lot yesterday and as I was backing out, another car across from me was also backing out and we hit each other. There's a dent in both of our bumpers. We both exchanged insurance information. I assume we're both at fault. What is the easiest way to deal with this mess? The dent on my car isn't too bad and it's an older car so I don't mind leaving it as is, but the dent in his car is slightly worse. The thing is I don't want my insurance premiums to go up. Does anyone know if it will? I've never been in an accident before so I don't know what will happen and I really don't wanna deal with too much of a hassle, so please offer your kind advice. Anyways, I"m looking for the best way to go about sorting this incident out, so I need help asap. Thanks in advance for your help.
  • You make a report to your insurance company, he does the same. the two companies start talking to each other and assign probably 50-50 blame and settle it between themselves. The insurance will let you know what the final settlement was.
  • Depends heavily on what state you are in, and the negligence laws of your state. You REALLY need to report this to your insurance company. There's a moderate chance the other guy will report it, and if he claims he was parked and NOT backing up, you can have a real mess on your hands. YOUR AGENT can tell you if your premiums will go up. In most states, a policy has to pay out at least XYZ dollars (ranges from $1,000 to $2,000) before the policy is surchargeable for an accident. So just report this, and avoid a lot of grief later.
  • I don't know where you are from. In England we build up a no claims discount for each year we do not make a claim on our insurance company. This can get to be quite a lot of money, as high as 40% of the premium. If we make a claim we lose this and have to start building it again. If the damage is not too extensive, it is often cheaper to pay for it yourself.
  • It sounds like you are equally at fault and I would argue that with either insurance company to contact you. If the other driver accepts his responsibility as you do, end of story. No insurance claim involved, no rate increase...that is as long as you can live with the minor damage.
  • You are both at fault. YOu contact your insurance company, the other driver contacts his/her insurance company and let them deal with it.
  • CALL 1-800 ASK GARY PRONTO!!! no just kidding, make a claim with the insurance company.
  • Wow, you could desire to retype this question, lol. opportunities are high that's not correct in spite of the shown fact that with this variety of terrible description and no pictures to instruct what you are attempting to describe in spite of the shown fact that like one reaction mentioned you could desire to take it to a physique save and have a expert examine out it.
  • IT WILL BE A 50/50 SPLIT. YOU BOTH WERE BACKING OUT AND ANYTIME THAT A PERSON BACKING OUT THEY ARE COMPLETELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY AND ALL DAMAGES. SO BOTH OF YOU ARE AT FAULT, YOU PAY YOURS AND THEY PAY THEIRS.
  • We’ll be back when the rain comes, they say, pulling away with all they own, straining the springs of their motor cars. Don’t forget us. And so they go, fleeing the blowing dust, fleeing the fields of brown-tipped wheat barely ankle high, and sparse as the hair on a dog’s belly. We’ll be back, they say, pulling away toward Texas, Arkansas, where they can rent a farm, pull in enough cash, maybe start again. We’ll be back when it rains, they say, setting out with their bedsprings and mattresses, their cookstoves and dishes, their kitchen tables, and their milk goats tied to their running boards3 in rickety cages, setting out for California, where even though they say they’ll come back, they just might stay if what they hear about that place is true. Don’t forget us, they say. But there are so many leaving, how can I remember them all? Ok here are the two questions 1.In “Migrants,” why do the family’s neighbors move? 2.What effects might their decision have on the people who stay behind? Please help with these two questions! Thx a lot in advance! :D
  • they are leaving because there is no rain obvo since they say they will be back after it rains the people who stay behind will be saddened at the loss of their friends and neighbors and maybe a little envious of their new lives
  • Hello, I ordered a TV from the Walmart website and used my Walmart store card. I live in Kansas but I sent it to my family in California as an early Christmas present. I found a better TV at the same price and purchased it but I want to return the other one. The TV has already shipped, so I cannot cancel the order online. My questions are: Can my family members go to their local Walmart to return it? If yes, will they make the charge disappear from my store card or will they give them cash/store credit? Thank you in advance!
  • I have seen their ads that if you can bring the ad in for the article for less they will give you the difference your family has to take the bother of either returning the item by freight or take it to the store, they can't show the ad with the lesser price--only you can
  • Call up walmart, they will either match the other store's price or email you a return label for the already-shipped tv. good luck!
  • Most of your horse racing site ex: Youbet, TVG all are American owned and fully legal. This means, if they don't pay you -which most likely won't happen- you have someone to sue. You will need, ID and supply them with an Social Security Number. When you cash out most likely they will ask for a utility bill matching the address on your ID. Youbet is based out of California and TVG I believe is as well. I established a account at both but go to the track too often to utilize them. Also there is XpressBet. Most will let you fund with an echeck -has to clear before cash out-, credit card. Good Luck :)

  • Hi In the future once I complete tafe and university and get my portfolio happening with my futuristic animations and master adobe photo shop and all them advanced 2d/3d animation programs and start being really good at it. I was on a few sites like waltdisney and google and animators get around 50 - $150,000.. So yeah I was wondering what I should do with my 100k ??? What should I do with the cash $ and how much do you earn per year ? Thanks :)
  • >>I was on a few sites like waltdisney and google and animators get around 50 - $150,000.. So yeah I was wondering what I should do with my 100k ???<< Pay the rent/mortgage, buy food, clothing, gas, etc. 100K doesn't go very far in California.
  • I already make money in the range of 100K and I give to charities, help out friends when they need it and I buy too much junk that I do not need. Remember to save as much as you can in your 401K and in tax deferred IRAs. This is not a religious question and does not belong in this forum.
  • Save as much as you can and put as much as you are allowed in a 401k plan. Get a good financial planner. Totally serious here. Don't waste it on dumb things. I am a housewife and I rather not say how much my husband makes because I know alot of people are falling on hard times, but he is a president of a company and does very well. Best wishes to you.

  • I really like to read teen romances. Some good books I have found are: The Christy Miller Collection Thrill Ride So Inn Love North of Beautiful The Lonely Hearts Club This Lullaby Prom and Prejudice Kissed by an Angel Series True Love Series (Lurlene McDaniel) Evermore Heart on a Chain <3 His Eyes and my favorite, all of Simone Elkeles's books <3 Can you think of any books like these? I am into realistic teen love stories. Thank you in advance for your help!!
  • Oh my goodness, I just love romance. I like adult romance as well, but here are some of my favourite teen love fiction novels. *The next few are by Kate Cann, and I LOVE her novels. All very romantic, alot like Thrill Ride. Diving In In The Deep End Sink or Swim Mediterranean Holiday Grecian Holiday Spanish Holiday California Holidy Hard Cash Shacked Up Speeding *The following are by Rachel Hawthorne (who wrote Thrill Ride): Carribean Crusing Island Girls (and Boys) The Boyfriend League Labors of Love Love on the Lifts Sweet Dreams Snowed In *I don't know if you know this, but Rachel Hawthorne also writes under the names Lorraine Heath and Jade Parker. The next two novels listed are by "Lorraine Heath" and the one after that is by "Jade Parker" Amelia and the Outlaw Samantha and the Cowboy To Catch a Pirate *I LOVE the Sweep series by Cate Tiernan, as well as some of her other novels. The Sweep series is 14 books long, all short maybe like 250 pages? Then the fifteen is longer, but isn't really part of the series. Its about a girl who finds out she is a witch, and she falls for a male witch who helps her come to see her powers. I absolutely adore them, and they're not as 'witchy' as you may think. I don't know how much you like Adult Romance but I like anything by Gaelen Foley, Nicole Jordan, Sabrina Jeffries, Allison Brennan, and Jillian Hunter. Happy Reading!

  • Doing both parks in a single day will barely leave you enough time to grab a snack yet alone doing any significant shopping - both parks are very large with enough to keep a person busy for days.... Just like others have said, things at both parks are expensive, I would say to spend a little time researching and reading at a discussion Forum like DISboards.com http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.ph...You can get tips on how to get the most fun and enjoyment out of your time there based on what you like to do. You can also plan on where (& when) to eat - that will be your biggest expense so if you plan that in advance you will have a better idea on how much extra cash to spend. All in all - if you take $100 spending money - you'll spend that, if you take $500 spending money - you'll spend that. One last thought, you may want to choose one park (based on what you like to do) and get the most out of that park. just a thought --- whatever you decide - you have a great time!!!! Enjoy.
  • U need lots of money "most expansive and busy place on earth, not happiest" LOL 1 snack ( popcorn, churro, or ice-cream, etc...) cost $3.50 Drinks like $3 a bottle Dinner ranges from $10-$30 dollars for 1 person. Souveners: $5 for for a small stuff like pen or pin $20-$100 for cute clothes, hats, etc...
  • Hmmmm Well it's really overpriced there so maybe for everything about 50 bu ks Just saying I mean it's like just in case u probably aren't going to spend it all but u know once again JUST IN CASE
  • I would take at least $300.00 bare minimum.
  • How much do you have?
  • A LOT!!!
  • It would depend on the particular hospital of choice and also the surgeon doing the procedure as well as which part of the U.S. could be a factor. I have the link to a site that may help you find more information. If interested in checking it out please feel free to e-mail or IM me off site any time.
  • Spine surgery is very safe nowadays. My cousin got her Spine surgery in India by the company called Dheeraj Bojwani Consultants .The Price for the surgery she paid in India was very less. She paid 25 % of the cost she was quoted in America. Dheeraj Bojwani Consultants is very famous in India. They arrange spine surgery for foreigners in India. I read a lot about them in the Newspapers and about their patient stories. They arrange financing for USA, Canadian, UK and other international patients who plan to have surgery abroad for low price, as Spine and other orthopedic surgery is not covered by insurance. They also have photos pasted of their International patients. You can checkout their website. There are huge cost savings. As a doctor I personally believe that surgery can be easily handled in India, as the quality of healthcare available In India is simply best in the world. The surgeons are USA/UK trained and facilities are 5 star. http://www.dheerajbojwani.com Hope this helps.

  • I was recently laid off. I do qualify for unemployment insurance, but it is taking forever to get the checks. Its been almost four weeks since I have been laid off. Tomorrow will be the first. I was renting a room out of someone's house. He's pretty strict. He's want's the money by the first our else....I live in California. All of my family live in Chicago. They don't have any money to send me. I don't have friends I have associates. My fault for being an introvert. I have terrible credit. So I don't have credit cards. The unemployment checks should come by next month. I will be getting $736 every other week. It will be easier if I can convince the guy to hold on, but I don't think I will be able to. I may be out by tomorrow. I can't borrow from a cash advanced place because I am in the negative at my bank. What can I do?
  • well some churches will help out people in need...there are also programs...something like life works and they will help you get back up on your feet possibly. also you could attempt joining the military...it may not be what you want to do but at least you wouldn't be living on the streets. also i suggest that you rapidly try finding another job, such as working at mc donalds, being a waiter, or working at a gas station. someone is bound to hire you and at least you would be making money. sorry i didn't help much :(
  • personal problems
  • I have over 60,000 in debit and husband has lost his job about 7 months ago. I made 50,000 in 08 and my debts are negative 2000 a month. I've been using Credit Cards for cash advances $15,000 to pay for my bill, well what's the use, I am more depth. I'm current with all my bills but it is piling up. Supporting husband, and 2 kids can't do this anymore and want to file BK. I don't want creditors to garnish my wages, Does anyone know about the California BK law? I also have a mortgage, and a car will this be in the BK, hope not :(
  • well, bankruptcy doesn't just erase your debts entirely. you'll still have to pay up.
  • I feel you! You can get a lot if info off the internet, try searching "Bankruptcy", I'm not sure of the site but one of the first ones you'll find will take you through a quiz to see if you'd be eligible for Chapter 7, then it can get you in touch with local attorneys. As far as your house, Chapter 7 let's you keep one mortgage and one car. Good Luck, God Bless you, hope your luck changes soon!
  • Your income seems to make you eligible for a chapter 7 plan which would wipe out your debt. There are exemptions for different types of property. Without knowing how much equity you have in your home and car, and what you owe it is impossible to advise accurately. If you want to keep paying for your home or car, it may be possible to keep them, but that depends on whether you have equity in them. If you're in San Diego county you can call for a free consultation with a bankruptcy lawyer (no-obligation). 858-344-0500
  • You need to talk to a legitimate agency experienced in debt consolidation ASAP. Talking with a bankruptcy attorney would not hurt either. There are programs that may help and they will also know the most current information on how the government intends to help people in your situation (and there is a lot of them)
  • sorry to hear that but when you file for BK they usually takes what hurts the most. esp your house and cars.
  • Before you go that rout, check this site out. You could save the home, car and get the peace you are looking for. http://www.mystory.thehelpster.com/debt-reduction-services/?id=Jfrench

  • I got divorced 08/05 the Judgement of Dissolution stated that we entered an agreement "petitioner (my x) agrees to pay community debt with credit card acct # in the amount of $8,000.00 and hold the respondent (me) harmless from any liability incurred by such debt. Petionioner (my x) does so with the understanding and agreement that the card shall no longer be used untill complete balance paid off." Balance due as of 08/05 was $8,000.00. Since that time balance has rose up to 9,731.25 in part by a cash advance transaction he made on 09/19/06 where he withdrew $2,000.00 in to his checking account & due to the high interest rate wich was 32.240%. I contacted him and ?d y he withdrew he said because he had to. Collections called me since no payment had been made since 07/06 because payment made 08/06 bounced. I have sent him 3 certified letters & called him numerus times he won't pick up the phone I live in California he has moved to Florida. What do I do?
  • I did contact the cc company letting them know of the divorce askin them to change my last name to maiden and sent them a copy of the Divorce. They responded to me " we appreciate your attention to the mater however we cannot lelive you of your contractual liability on the account above based ona Divorce agreement between you and your former spouse/ Please be advised that a Divorce agreement is between the parties of the divorce and you are still contractually liable for the debt on the cc in accordance with the agreement" I was the main accnt he was authorized, bill were mailed to Florida but it's a PO box I plan on going to court tomorrow trouble is i can't have him served to a po box. I just paid $49.95 for an online background check see if i can get an address but what a waist of $50. I called cc co advised them the $2000 was fraud they say he was authorized to make transactions. =( uhhh!!! I'm sooo frustrated!!!
  • I am not sure about your State's law, but you may want to send the credit card company a copy of the Judgment. They may still try to hold you responsible. You need to file a Motion with the court to have him brought before the Judge on contempt issues. Judges do not take it well when people blatantly disregard their Orders. Good Luck.
  • As soon as the divorce happened, you needed to provide a copy of the Final Decree to the Credit Holder, and have your NAME REMOVED from the debt ... you can still do this, but at this time ... it is going to be iffy as to whether or not the Creditor will continue to call you .... YOU also need to provide the address and indentifying information to the Creditor of your ex .. and the place of his employment too (if known). Finally, report to the Credit Report Bureaus as well as to the Final Judgment -- pull your credit report, and file a challenge with EACH of the 3 major bureaus -- with a copy of your final judgment showing you are to be held harmless as of date. That is the best way to challenge ...
  • you will have to contact a lawyer and take him back to court. unfortunately, you won't be able to get your name off the card unless he agrees to that (you ask the cc company to remove your name, they send him a letter asking if it's ok if he says no, you are screwed) with your name on the card, your only recourse is court. the cc company will expect you to pay if he does not. court orders are not recognised by cc companies.
  • YOU SHOULD NOT BE ON THAT CARD. YOU SHOULD HAVE HAD YOURSELF REMOVED FROM THAT CARD AND THE JUDGES ORDER IS BINDING WHICH MEANS THAT HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE REPAYMENT OF THE CARD. YOU NEED TO GET IN TOUCH WITH THE BANK THAT ISSUED THE CARD AND REMOVE YOUR NAME FROM THAT CARD. SHOW THE JUDGES ORDER, THAT SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO REMOVE YOU AND CLEAR YOU FROM THE DEBT ON THE CARD.
  • back to court
  • If I was to say that a previously 5 star hotel was shut down, vacant for 20 years, is in a neglected state but still quite sound and it was for sale for cheap, what do you think the lowest asking price could be? To buy it. And I mean a 17 floor x-5 star hotel. Really fancy like the Renaissance Center in Detroit but run down like this: http://www.google.com/imgres?q=abandoned+5+star+hotel&client=safari&sa=X&rls=en&biw=1282&bih=623&tbm=isch&tbnid=SWOZpy3RYtCexM:&imgrefurl=http://www.theenglishgroup.co.uk/blog/2013/08/15/abandoned-hotels/&docid=kFUfVDhSgxo1SM&imgurl=http://www.theenglishgroup.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Deserted-hotels-4-650x433-460x306.jpg&w=460&h=306&ei=lUa2UtDQJpLkoATOvoCAAg&zoom=1&ved=1t:3588,r:42,s:0,i:216&iact=rc&page=3&tbnh=183&tbnw=275&start=35&ndsp=15&tx=157&ty=81 http://www.google.com/imgres?q=abandoned+5+star+hotel&client=safari&sa=X&rls=en&biw=1282&bih=623&tbm=isch&tbnid=47iGn_SKdOnkRM:&imgrefurl=http://www.theenglishgroup.co.uk/blog/2013/08/15/abandoned-hotels/&docid=kFUfVDhSgxo1SM&imgurl=http://www.theenglishgroup.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/hotel-460x305.jpg&w=460&h=305&ei=lUa2UtDQJpLkoATOvoCAAg&zoom=1&ved=1t:3588,r:23,s:0,i:159 http://www.google.com/imgres?q=abandoned+hotel&client=safari&rls=en&biw=1282&bih=623&tbm=isch&tbnid=VMsz1zlOv-HgsM:&imgrefurl=http://robgrafix.deviantart.com/art/UE-Abandoned-Hotel-Croatia-4-178593320&docid=fhJqFpPBp8MhBM&imgurl=http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/251/9/6/ue__abandoned_hotel__croatia13_by_blowyourminddesign-d2ybvuu.jpg&w=800&h=1200&ei=MUe2UsDrKMP3oASG3oGIDQ&zoom=1&ved=1t:3588,r:48,s:0,i:252&iact=rc&page=3&tbnh=190&tbnw=114&start=32&ndsp=22&tx=90&ty=143 What do you think wound be a minimum asking price. It's been neglected but is still perfectly safe after a bit of work. I know the price would differ depending on the market, location and agent, but I'm just asking for an estimate. As close to dirt cheap as possible. Thanks in advance, it's much, much, much appreciated. K.A.C.E./Kelly Edis P.S. How is your day going? It's cold here.
  • Thank you for all the answers so far... BullRooster, The building is not actually in Detroit. I just gave the Renaissance Center (which IS in Detroit) as an example of how big and how nice it (was). And you're right... Getting a business going in it would be heartbreakingly expensive. However, turning a profit is not the aim for buying the hotel... You see, I'm a writer. And I'm making a story about someone who bought a hotel for- if you can believe it- using it as a house. He later, then, turns it into a... Well, something... I haven't quite worked it out yet. Something for charity or something. Either way, so the aim is not money.
  • It is hard to tell the size from the pictures, other then "pretty big". In a non-metropolitian area I would expect 2-3 million. Metro maybe 10. That would be the dirt cheap price, all cash. PS = Cold in California too, at least from what we are used to.
  • Honestly, depending on who owned it, the lowest price could be $1 (or maybe millions, hard to say). Seriously, if the place was owned by the municipality (and that is very likely, its very possible, maybe probably that the old owner stopped paying the real estate taxes and now the municipality owns it) they might be happy to get rid of it for nothing in hopes that the new owner would fix it up and get it running and bring in some money and business to the area. Note that even if you could get it for nothing I really doubt you could make it profitable. The old owner clearly knew what they were doing but they couldn't turn a profit so how are you going to pull that off. Besides that, now it needs millions of dollars in renovations (if not a wrecking ball) and unless the economics of the area have gotten alot better since it closed (highly unlikely for Detroit, I suspect the opposite that there are even fewer people in the area now) its very unlikely you'll be able to run it at a profit. PS - My day is good. No work and its unseasonably warm, a great day really.
  • I would guess that it would be a few million. The land has a lot of value most likely.
  • I have no idea...but once I did try to buy a empty firehouse.
  • My brother and I are thinking on renting a condo in Kihei on Maui and live there for the entire summer. which is a little over 3 months for us.. Hes graduating college and I'm still in High School but he said we'll go together. We'll both get jobs. I'm thinking on working at Maui Tropix and he'll do something good too. We'll pitch in our cash together to pay rent. I believe its only $350 a month. We grew up going to Kihei and it never gets old for us. We know that island like its our hometown. Its just we live in California and yeah summer seems awesome here because college parties etc but we aren't crazy animals who get hammered every night and pass out in my front lawn lol. What do you guys think? We may plan on living there maybe in a couple years but were not quite sure yet.
  • I'd first confirm what the rent is. $350 for something two people can fit in sounds really low. Wherever you're coming up with that has high odds of being some kind of scam. I'd also ensure you have work lined up in advance if you're going to be counting on it. Many places won't find it worth the hassle to hire and train you just for a summer -- if they have job openings, they go to people who are long-term residents and need the work and are going to stick around. Not the people who stay for a summer and go just when the employer might finally start getting you adjusted to things. And people from the mainland starting job hunts usually take months. You're not just going to show up and work someplace because you feel like it and think you can do the work. They need to see why it's in their interests as well. Anyway, I don't know that your plan sounds wise unless you have enough funds already saved up to get you to Hawaii and through the summer and back in advance, with any work being a bonus. Right now I'd suspect you'd be looking to "rent" a condo you're not actually going to end up living in, and you're going to not find work as quickly as you think. Anyway, be careful.
  • Hi, I'm in a process of making a wholesale auto dealers licensee in California . I'm close to being finish with the process but I don't have an office or any space. How do I go looking for a cheap office? What are the requirements? Can I get a cheap office in a corporate building which I can rent out a room? Or can I sublease a retail store as an office? Help me out!!! Any other info will be helpfull!! Looking forward to it. Thanks in advance
  • In my state you don't need an office for a wholesale license. You can do it from home. However, a wholesale license only lets you sell to dealers and at auctions. -------- Most states have limits of like 5 per year but no real way of enforcing them. The laws usually talk about big fines but the reality is, if they catch you. they will just ask you to either become licensed or stop selling so many cars. The fines come in when you ignore them repeatedly. It becomes problematic having to register every car in your name, pay sales taxes & title it. And then you are supposed to buy insurance for every car. And you may even need proof of it and liability only runs probably $30+ per month per car. And you cant really deal with open titles when you buy from auctions. To be a retail dealer, you have to have a car lot zoned for business and garage liability insurance is mandatory. So those expenses can make it expensive. I did it about 27 years ago with nothing but maybe $5000 in cash, but I had been going to crummy auctions open to the public for months. Mostly watching. I knew so little when I started its amazing I survived. I started with a wholesale only license but back then they had no way of stopping me from selling at retail; Now they do. My state didn't require insurance back then, now they do. So its gotten more expensive. I later faked a retail location & never got caught. I made a living just buying & flipping cars mostly on the side of the road. That too has changed and its not permitted like it used to be. I didn't have a shop and I had no mechanical aptitude whatsoever so if you can work on you should do better than I did. And I did ok for a number of years as I got better at it. I was very lucky too in that I never had insurance and never had a serious wreck. A few minor fender benders where I just paid cash out of pocket for the small amounts. In hindsight, if I would have caused a big wreck early on without insurance and couldn't pay for it, I would have lost my drivers license and dealers license and couldn't even have legally drove for a number of years. So it really could have screwed me up. I don't even dabble anymore. The cost of insurance and a car lot makes part time not really fruitful. The biggest thing to learn is car values. Takes time & experience & you learn from your mistakes. I made a lot of them but the good deals made up for the bad. Also had good fortune investing in the market during my car dealer years. I thought it was brains, it may have been a bull market. Because my investing results haven't been as good since I retired from being a car dealer. (At about 40) What helped me is I lived at home with my parents for the first 3-4 years and that really helped me build up my capital base. And I remained single so I didn't need a lot to live on. And I often worked nights & weekends when other car dealers are closed. I rather enjoyed it especially at first. And spent a lot of time on it. Going to several auctions a week just to stay up with car values and buying from a few new car dealers too. And keeping up with all the cars I had spread out all over town was a challenge. Keeping them clean & moving them around.
  • i go to court tomorrow morning for my judgement against me by capital one. i've never gone in front a judge or court before so i'm really nervous about it! on tuesday morning i went and met with a bankrucpty lawyer and i paid the retaining fee and he gave me a record number. what will this do to me now in court tomorrow? the lawyer told me there weren't going to be able to garnish my wages and they can't touch my car bc my car title is currently with a bonding agency since i bailed someone out last week using my car and they have a lien on it while they have it. he also said my car isn't worth to them to touch since its a 2001 ford focus. he said my assets since i really have none only a laptop which is strictly used for my online university i go to and my car are all safe from exemption. thanks in advance!
  • You will go in front of the judge, and basically you will get a judgement issued against you. the judge will ask you why you are not paying. you will give him your sob story, he wont care and issue a judgement. you will tell him you are filing for bankruptcy and that capital one will be part of the bankruptcy process. they can only garnish your wages if they enforce the order which is given to them by the judge. which cant happen if you file bankruptcy. if you live in california they have this lovely new thing where you have to pay back part of your bankruptcy amount. not sure about other states. why don't you ask your lawyer? you are paying them a lot of money to help you out! they wont repossess your laptop. and maybe you shouldnt mention you have it. they may ask for stuff back which was purchased by that credit card if it has tangible value.
  • Are you going to court to file bankruptcy? Or are you going to court because Capital One sued you? If it's the second, then the judge will really only have two questions for you: Do you owe them the money? If so, how do you plan to repay it?
  • relax. the judge only ask for yes and no answer. plus your not the only one there. there would be like 20 of you there! got into bankcruptcy 5 yrs ago.
  • I'm looking for a cabin in Eastern Washington, Idaho, or Oregon to stay in for about a week this summer with some friends. We are hoping to find one along a river or lake (or within walking distance of one) but aren't looking to shell out too much cash (although we don't have unreasonable expectations for a low price). I don't know where to start looking for one! Does anyone know a good site to start with, or even a specific cabin/area that could work? Thanks in advance!
  • Coeur d'Alene Lake has some stunning little cabins on it for decent prices. I recomend Craigslist under "vacation rentals". That's what we used when we went down to rent a cabin in California. Also, if you want to go even farther north, Lake Pend Oreille has some beautiful little cabins as well. CDA is much warmer than PO, but PO is a little more secluded, much much larger, and quieter.
  • Our 1994 Honda Civic got stolen and the tires and rims got jacked as well as the intake and stereo. Our main concern is the vehicle being operational. We have close to no money. Me and my girl had to cash advance just to get her car out of the impound. We are getting it out of the impound Tuesday afternoon but we either A. have to have somewhere to store it (private property or a friend who doesnt mind having a car with no whels in the yard) or B. get rims and tires so we can park it in our garage. We live in an apartment so it can't sit on the street more than 72 hours unless we move it atleast 6 feet. We basically need to find a place locally or someone local who can hook up a set of rims and tires for real cheap. We live in Palm Springs, California and if there is anyone who can help us out it would be soooo appreciated. We are literally F****D if we can't get this resoved or find a solution by Tuesday and were fresh out of ideas. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks
  • That's tough. Try a salvage yard and see if they can get you some used rims. Sometimes they can be jerks, try different ones and have them look it up on their computer. You can also trying buying it online like ebay. Try Craigslist as people sell many used parts locally. Good Luck.
  • Go to a plasma place if there is one available to get some quick money like $20 to $30, then you will have to call the junk yards and look in the paper. Some guy may be selling parts off a totaled vehicle. And have your little girls when you get the wheels and you give your sob story. Won't hurt to try.
  • i think this should be fairly easy to find since civics are quite popular everywhere. here's my tip where you could find what yer looking for: 1. try your local automotive websites. i mean local to your place. place an ad for what you're looking for. 2. try to look in a used tires and rims shop. maybe they could find one. 3. contact your local honda car club.
  • Try borrowing 4 spare tires from friends and neighbours until u get to buy new ones.
  • go to a local junk yard and u will find what u looking for
  • My friend's band recently participated in a Battle of the Bands event for the Vans Warped Tour and it came across as a total scam. The company the put on the events and promoted the battles, Acropolis RPM, claimed to have a panel of industry judges in the first round but it became apparent that this was a complete lie when virtually all of the bands in every battle were advanced to the semi-finals. This was done at numerous battles throughout the Southern California region and caused all of the semi-final rounds to become over-booked. For the semi-finals, Acropolis RPM required bands to buys tickets from them at $8 a piece (otherwise, fans would have to pay $13 at the door). They claimed that there was no minimum requirement, however, the more tickets you sold, the better chance you had of winning the battle. There was never any mention of a judging panel in the semi-final round, which made it clear that the band that paid for the most tickets would win; no talent necessary. Acropolis' intentions appeared even shadier on the day of the semi-final battle when I witnessed another band slipping the promoter a large amount of cash (no exchange of tickets was done). That band, unsurprisingly, was the one band out of 14 that advanced to finals. To add insult to injuring, this band was quite mediocre compared to the rest of the line-up. It really is a shame because I know of a couple really great bands that were not allowed to perform that day due to the fact that they didn't sell any tickets. To sum it all up, Acropolis RPM basically puts on numerous fake battles throughout Southern California and advances every band to the semi-finals so they can get as much money out of each band as possible. The band that gives them the most money then goes to finals. I am very curious to hear how the final round goes. I'd assume money is involved but we'll have to wait and see...
  • Happens in every city that has any type of music scene. Look at Craig's List musicians postings and scumbags like this are always lurking around trying to sucker in the next group of naive kids who think they've got a shot at greatness.
  • Kind of. Basically our band was to play a show at the gothic theatre in denver in a battle of the bands type thing, where we were expected to sell at least 40 tickets for fifteen dollars each, where any amount over that we sold got us a better time so that more people could see us. we were in high school and this concert was in a different city, so almost no one bought a ticket. i think we probably ended up having to buy some of them ourselves. because of that we got the choice to either play in the gothic theatre itself at 7 am or in a diner down the street at 2 pm. So these people literally made six hundred bucks off of us and other people we knew just so we could play for some of them (most of them ended up not coming since we played at 7). the whole thing was a joke. they kicked us off the stage twenty minutes earlier than they originally told us because their power went screwy and they needed the extra time. So we played four songs for a crowd of about 20-30 people (all of which were other bands and our parents) for 20 minutes. at the time it didn't seem at all like that, but looking back, yeah definitely.
  • Haha, i like the call. A poser is someone who tries to be something they're no longer usually to electrify someone or some team of people, yet quite that is kinda of like an fairly extensive definition. i quite hate labels, which makes experience even extra as if i'm poser or something yet i do not opt for to outline people like that, it sucks even as someones calls you something your no longer. Wow, I truly do not comprehend the position i became going with that, haha, sorry in case you do not comprehend what i became getting at.
  • That's not a question, check yo s$$t next time you want to take the crackerdouche road to fame fun boy.
  • Make sure to tell your bank you will be traveling to Europe well in advance before you travel, so they can set a flag on your account. Otherwise they might lock your account if they see someone os getting money out of your account, but from a European location, thinking someone stole your card or it is some kind of fraud or something. Usually they'll be fine and just ask you from when to when you are traveling, and make sure everybody working with your account will know what is going on, so that you don't sit in Europe having no access to your money all of a sudden. But you can pull money out of (almost) every ATM. Ask your bank for their partner bank in Europe or Germany, as they will sometimes have lesser fees for pulling money out of your account when you do it at an ATM of their partner bank. Also ask if the fees will be a set percentage of the amount you pull from your account or a set fee (which is more often the case) Say, if you pull 100.00€ from your account, and their fee is 5%, you pay 5€, and if you pull 200€, your fee is 10€, and so on. Now, if their fee is set at five Euros (or five dollars, or whatever) per withdrawal, and you pull 500€, the fee you have to pay is still just 5€. So that can be a very important thing to ask, as this can add up quickly. Other than that: Do not expect every small shop to accept every credit card, and don't expect them to take credit cards for every amount. Some shops (especially gas stations, in case you want to rent a car and drive) have an "at least" amount (mostly it's like 20 to 30 Euros) before they allow any other way of payment other than cash. The Eurail pass only will pay off if you plan to really travel extensively, otherwise, there are special offers and stuff one can book with the German Bahn, and they routinely sell tickets to places like Paris or Amsterdam, so this won't be a problem. I gave you the link for their web page in my answer to your other question already. Anyway, I hope you'll have fun and enjoy the experience!
  • 1 euro is about 1 dollar and 30 cents further more if you have a maestro, master or any other credit card sign on your bank cards then you can pin at any ATM machine there. I don't know of an Eurual Pass, do you mean Eurail pass? do you intend to travel to other european countries?? A eurail pass is a pass that gives you acces to the train system in europe, with it you can travel to different countries by train, depending on the price you pay. Might i refer the Netherlands to you? Amsterdam is really worth seeing.

  • Hello, my name is Jacob Lopez, and im 21. I live in Los Angeles, California. And I really really need to come up with $4,000 by the end of April. If I dont, then im screwed. What happened was I got a loan from my brother and mother. And they expect me to pay them back by end of April. So I need to make money as fast as i can. I am an advanced computer user, and im also wondering about those jobs where u get payed to post links or whatever. But any idea is good. PLease help!
  • Well if you know your way around a computer i used to make extra money by purchasing computers off craigslist that i knew i could resale for a profit. For example buy a computer that is cheap because of a problem maybe the owner doesn't have the knowledge to fix but you do. After you fix the computer just resale it. Another thing i used to do was buy all the pieces for a good computer and put it together and sell for a prophet because it is cheaper to build a computer than it is to walk into best buy and buy one. Another way to make money is sell jewelry and yes i have done this! Go into the local Salvation Army and ask to look through the Jewelry box which is usually in the back but your going to have to talk your way into letting you usually which isn't hard. But don't make it obvious what your really after! Then find gold and silver you can sell at a local pawn shop. Ways to spot the Jewelry you want 1. Gold and Silver don't stick to a magnet. So just take one with you and if it sticks you know its junk! But be careful some fake jewelry is made out of non-magnetic metals. 2. Look for a stamp on the jewelry. For example if you find stuff stamped 925 is sterling silver if you see 18k its 18k gold. So go through the Jewelry and what ever is non-magnetic set aside. When you have found the non-magnetic pieces then examine them for a stamp and If they have a stamp set those pieces aside. When your finished with this simple 2 step process then buy them for pennies on the dollar and take them to the nearest pawn shop and cash in! Well i hope this post helped you out and good luck!
  • I am 18 years old, and have been bowling for 7 years, i currently bowl in the saturday youth league, and just finished off the season with 91 games holding a 219 average, i hope to do better in the summer and bring my average even higher because i know i can if i try. I am lefty and have wanted to go pro but dont know if im good enough cuz there are so many bowlers i cant really compare. i bowl in many trnys, and practice on pba/sport shots, just not sure if im as good as i need to be to hopefully make it someday
  • I've been in the same situation that you are currently in. At age 18, I left the jr. ranks and bowled in adult scratch leagues and tournaments. After two years, I earned my PBA card with the minimum of 195 as an average, which was tougher to keep back then compared to now, with all the advances in equipment. Since I had a 9 to 5 job, I was able to bowl tournaments in the PBA Western Region after going to "PBA School" in Las Vegas with Don Johnson teaching. There were many PBA National Tour Stops in Northern California near my home, but bowled in qualifying just to cross lanes and meet the likes of Pete Weber, Walter Ray Williams Jr., Brian Voss, Norm Duke, Johnny Petraglia, Mark Roth, Parker Bohn Jr., Mike Aulby and most of the pros that got their start in the late 80's. My PBA regional "career" lasted about three years, after a torn rotator cuff injury, two PBA tournament cashes, 12 "300" games, seven 700+ series, one 800+ series and a PBA ending average of 218. Now, I'm back to being a recreational bowler with my sights on rejoining the PBA with the seniors in about a decade. 10 years should be enough practice to get back up into a qualifying average..... If you're ready, you can build up your average in order to be able to apply for your PBA Denny's card, but if not, then you can test the waters by bowling in PBA Experience leagues and scratch tournaments to see how it would be by bowling against advanced amateurs or regional pros, then apply for your card, if you definitely have what it takes! Good luck!
  • what you should do is bowl in some regional tournaments in your area go to dennyspabtour.com and there is a bar click on regions there is about 5 regions and click on your region and it should show a list of past and future tournomnents also the tour trial should be coming up real soon you should enter the tounoment..the top 10 are invited to the pro tour i have bowl in many regionals tournoments good luck
  • I am 15, I have been bellydancing since I was 10. By the time I am 18 I'll have had almost ten years of experience. I love bellydance, it is my passion and I would like to teach class, and workshops, and perform around the world. Including big shows, festivals, restaurants, private parties, and other events. Around how much would I make? I know I have already asked this question but I didn't really get a general idea of how much. P.S. I live in Miami, Fl.
  • In general you will need to start small and work your way up. First you will need to build a name for yourself and generate interest in your own style and abilities. I would suggest you start by doing restraunt gigs and private parties then entering national competitions to get your name out there and show off your skills. Make sure you have a website that showcases your experience and try teaching local classes. You may need to start by teaching classes as part of a larger bellydance school. For example perhaps you teach beginners classes while the more reputable, experienced dancer (or studio owner) teaches intermediate and advanced level courses. Eventually you should be able to teach your own classes but if your going to have your own studio you will need to build up name recognition and a lot of cash. There are a lot of costs involved in studios. You may be able to teach through your local community education/parks and rec departments until you can open your own studio or rent studio space. If there are local shows be sure to sign up for a slot in as many as you can (again this get's your name out there). Additionally look for conventions and weeklong workshops because they usually feature at least one big name dancer but often have multiple dancers teaching other mini-workshops. So if you have a good idea for a specialty workshop then contact them with a proposal. Many have a sign-up for teaching at these so be sure to check them out. Unfortunately until your the big name dancer that's featured there won't be too many perks so you probably have to pay your own travel and accomodations but if people like you it will help with a larger recognition of your name and style and will eventually lead to people inviting you to workshops and in the future of course this could lead to being the featured dancer (often they pay for your travel and accomodations then but not always). When teaching workshops think first of local and build your name and reputation with your local community. Then think regional and build your name up in your region, then national, then international. It takes many small steps and each step is dependent not only on your marketability but also on the quality of your dancing. Now the hard part in this is determining how much you would make. Bellydancers have extremely different rates not only within a single state but with a region and within a country. How much you make could be dramatically different in Florida than in California, New York, or Minnesota. Additionally if your looking to set up a teaching business you can't just go where there's the most pay without thinking about the other costs involved such as housing and food costs as well as whether you are renting a studio, buying a studio, whether you need to purchase insurance for your studio, etc... all of these costs can really add up. You will need to factor in costume, prop, and music costs as well which will be expensive too. So even if your theoretically making good money most of you money will go right back into the business and leave you with little else. Especially when you start traveling to do competition and workshops and such the cost can rise dramatically. Are you paying for your own travel costs? Accommodations? etc... You may also need to factor in things like lost business if you have to close your studio or cancel classes or hire someone to fill in for you while your gone. Each job may pay differently and often the flow of income is not steady because it depends on enrollment in your classes as well as compensation from other sources and balancing that out with the many costs involved. Most full time professional bellydancers are not rich but they do it because they love what they do. Most of them must also supplement by making videos to sell or finding some other means of creating extra revenue. All that being said you could make anywhere from about $14,000 - $50,000 a year but I would expect that you will start out at the lower end of the spectrum and it will take many years to move up to the higher end of the spectrum. It really depends how many people are interested in you and how many jobs you can get and even on the tips. It's theoretically possible you could make more or less than than this too.

The thing is both companies are merging some advertisement resources, wich would multiply their presence to a very rocket high altitude. So, they are adjusting and testing this probability, and to avoid any antitrust implications they contacted the U.S. Justice Department , explaining thayt over a period of 2 weeks they will run a monitored tes, as to allow any friction to be fixed... including any doubts from the Gov[t. No one had to be contacted, since users are not being scrutinized and anonymity is being exercised. Beside, only 3% of the sample behavior is too low to create any concerns. You explain that you consider not too good that users are involved. We agree to a certain point, but in that way of thinking, advertisers, other users, search robots, etc, would be require to inform users of any doings, and it does not happen even on real life.... so, this is the way advancing goes in the west world! Here some aparts of the |Reuters: The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said some of the government's concern focused on a telephone call from Google Chief Executive Eric Schmidt to Yahoo Chief Executive Jerry Yang to offer help in thwarting Microsoft's bid worth around $44 billion. The test was one of a series of efforts by Yahoo to fend off Microsoft's unwelcome bid. A second source said the Justice Department was concerned about a longer-term deal between Google and Yahoo, and had an initial inquiry underway into the matter. A Justice Department spokeswoman would only say that the department was "aware of the collaboration." Neither Google nor Yahoo has said whether the two-week test will be extended. "We informed the Justice Department before we launched this test and we have been responsive to their questions about it," said Google spokesman Adam Kovacevich. Yahoo spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler said: "Yahoo proactively kept the Department of Justice informed of its intentions to conduct this limited test with Google and have provided information to DOJ on the nature of the test." Microsoft declined to comment. Google shares closed down 1.5 percent to $546.49 in regular trading on Wednesday, while Yahoo, which posted a better-than-expected quarterly profit on Tuesday, finished down 1.6 percent to $28.08, both on Nasdaq. Microsoft shares gained 4 percent to $31.45. INDUSTRY CLOUT The initial Google and Yahoo test is small, covering only 3 percent of Web searches performed on Yahoo, the companies have said. Google is the top search engine with 63 percent of searches, and No. 2 Yahoo has 17 percent, a combined 80 percent of the market, according to ratings company Hitwise. Philip Bromiley, who teaches law at the University of California at Irvine, said that kind of clout meant that companies could sharply raise prices. "Any industry, when you start to see that kind of figure, you're going to have antitrust arguments," he said. Sources familiar with the matter told Reuters on Tuesday that Yahoo was still in separate talks with News Corp and Time Warner Inc about other types of deals -- all designed to avoid a Microsoft takeover. Microsoft is prepared to walk away from its bid for Yahoo Inc if the two sides can't agree on a price, Chief Executive Steve Ballmer said in Italy on Wednesday. "We think the best way to move forward quickly is to come together with Yahoo," Ballmer said. "Hopefully that works. But if it doesn't, we go forward." Ballmer has set a Saturday deadline for Yahoo's board to accept a deal with Microsoft or face a lower bid that Microsoft would take directly to Yahoo's shareholders. Yahoo's board of directors says Microsoft's cash-and-stock offer is too low. Yahoo President Susan Decker told Wall Street analysts in a conference call on Tuesday that it was too early to say whether Yahoo would reach a deal to turn over some part of the company's Web search advertising business to rival-turned-Microsoft-counterweight Google. "It's premature to speculate on what options we may ultimately pursue or whether some form of arrangement might result," Decker said.

  • I am 15, I have been bellydancing since I was 10. By the time I am 18 I'll have had almost ten years of experience. I love bellydance, it is my passion and I would like to teach class, and workshops, and perform around the world. Including big shows, festivals, restraunts, private parties, and other events. Around how much would I make?
  • In general you will need to start small and work your way up. First you will need to build a name for yourself and generate interest in your own style and abilities. I would suggest you start by doing restraunt gigs and private parties then entering national competitions to get your name out there and show off your skills. Make sure you have a website that showcases your experience and try teaching local classes. You may need to start by teaching classes as part of a larger bellydance school. For example perhaps you teach beginners classes while the more reputable, experienced dancer (or studio owner) teaches intermediate and advanced level courses. Eventually you should be able to teach your own classes but if your going to have your own studio you will need to build up name recognition and a lot of cash. There are a lot of costs involved in studios. You may be able to teach through your local community education/parks and rec departments until you can open your own studio or rent studio space. If there are local shows be sure to sign up for a slot in as many as you can (again this get's your name out there). Additionally look for conventions and weeklong workshops because they usually feature at least one big name dancer but often have multiple dancers teaching other mini-workshops. So if you have a good idea for a specialty workshop then contact them with a proposal. Many have a sign-up for teaching at these so be sure to check them out. Unfortunately until your the big name dancer that's featured there won't be too many perks so you probably have to pay your own travel and accomodations but if people like you it will help with a larger recognition of your name and style and will eventually lead to people inviting you to workshops and in the future of course this could lead to being the featured dancer (often they pay for your travel and accomodations then but not always). When teaching workshops think first of local and build your name and reputation with your local community. Then think regional and build your name up in your region, then national, then international. It takes many small steps and each step is dependent not only on your marketability but also on the quality of your dancing. Now the hard part in this is determining how much you would make. Bellydancers have extremely different rates not only within a single state but with a region and within a country. How much you make could be dramatically different in Florida than in California, New York, or Minnesota. Additionally if your looking to set up a teaching business you can't just go where there's the most pay without thinking about the other costs involved such as housing and food costs as well as whether you are renting a studio, buying a studio, whether you need to purchase insurance for your studio, etc... all of these costs can really add up. You will need to factor in costume, prop, and music costs as well which will be expensive too. So even if your theoretically making good money most of you money will go right back into the business and leave you with little else. Especially when you start traveling to do competition and workshops and such the cost can rise dramatically. Are you paying for your own travel costs? Accommodations? etc... You may also need to factor in things like lost business if you have to close your studio or cancel classes or hire someone to fill in for you while your gone. Each job may pay differently and often the flow of income is not steady because it depends on enrollment in your classes as well as compensation from other sources and balancing that out with the many costs involved. Most full time professional bellydancers are not rich but they do it because they love what they do. Most of them must also supplement by making videos to sell or finding some other means of creating extra revenue. All that being said you could make anywhere from about $14,000 - $50,000 a year but I would expect that you will start out at the lower end of the spectrum and it will take many years to move up to the higher end of the spectrum. It really depends how many people are interested in you and how many jobs you can get and even on the tips. It's theoretically possible you could make more or less than than this too.
  • I'm in the UK which could be very different to the USA. The UK dancers I know, apart from one, are only part time. My sister did make what seemed like a fortune dancing in the top London clubs, mostly in tips, but that was a long time ago. I hear it said that dancers with Bellydance Superstars don't get paid much money, but they do travel the world, and build really good reputations, and can then get well paid for workshops, teaching, and other performances. Workshops - you can look at the fees charged and times it by the number of students. Reading through this forum might help. The dancers on there should be able to give you advice. http://bellydancebiz.tribe.net/Miles Copeland of BDSS published this advice on The Gilded Serpent which I reckon every aspiring superstar should read. http://www.gildedserpent.com/cms/2009/07...In design - which is where I worked - it always took talent but it also took personality as well. I expect that is just as true for dance. If you are the sort of person who gets on well with others, but can be tough when needed, and has business sense, I expect you could do really well.
  • it takes about 2 years to build a business like that. my very basic advice is to stay out of any kind of debt and try to move into a larger artistic social circle. read books on marketing and read biographies of other dancers so you can have an example. good luck.
  • Mark Anthony Philippoussis (born November 7, 1976) is an Australian tennis player. He turned professional in 1994 and as of 2007 resides in Nevada, USA. He regards himself as both Australian and Greek, and as a child spoke Greek as his first language though his mother is Italian.[1] He has also had a minor career in modeling and is the current star of the American reality television dating show Age of Love.[2] Contents [show] 1 Biography 1.1 Early career 1.2 Rise to top 10 1.3 Davis Cup 1.4 2003 comeback 1.5 Fall from grace 1.6 2006 Return 1.7 2007 2 Grand Slam singles finals 2.1 Runner-ups (2) 3 Masters Series singles finals 3.1 Win 3.2 Runner-up 4 Singles finals (22) 4.1 Wins 4.2 Runner-ups 5 Age of Love 6 Footnotes 7 References 8 External Links [edit] Biography [edit] Early career Philippoussis was born in Melbourne and educated at Wesley College. Coached by his father, Nick Philippoussis, the right-hander has played tennis since he was six years of age. He was briefly coached by former 1987 Wimbledon champion Pat Cash during his junior years, which ended in an acrimonious split. In 1994, he finished third in single ranking for juniors. Philippoussis also finished as junior doubles champion with Ben Ellwood in Australia, Wimbledon, and Italy. He turned professional in 1994. In 1995, at the age of 19, he was the youngest player in the year-end top 50. In 1996, he reached the 4th round of the Australian Open upsetting Pete Sampras in the 3rd round and in doubles with Patrick Rafter. On May 25, 1997, he recorded a personal best 229.0 km/h (142.3 mph) serve in a game he lost to Albert Costa. [edit] Rise to top 10 In 1998, he reached his first Grand Slam final at the US Open losing to fellow Australian Patrick Rafter. On March 29, 1999, he entered the top 10 for the first time and stayed there for 11 weeks. He advanced to the quarter finals at Wimbledon for the second straight year and retired in 2nd set against no. 1 Pete Sampras after having won the first set. He suffered a moderate cartilage tear in his left knee and underwent arthroscopic surgery four days later on July 6. Sampras later remarked that he "dodged a bullet out there." He returned to professional tennis seven weeks later in Indianapolis and lost in his opening match. He did not play again until October 12 in Singapore where he lost in 2nd Round. He finished 1999 in the top 20. 2000 was the fourth consecutive year in which he finished in the top 20. He reached the 4th round at the Australian Open losing to eventual champion Andre Agassi. He defeated Pete Sampras 8-6 in the fifth set at Roland Garros in a 1st round match but lost in the 4th round. For the third consecutive year, he made it to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon losing again to Andre Agassi. He appeared in his second Olympics, losing in 3rd Round to eventual gold medalist Yevgeny Kafelnikov. He finished 2002 in the top 100 (7th time in 8 years) despite not winning a title. He moved from Miami to San Diego, California area in September 2002. [edit] Davis Cup Phillipoussis has always claimed to be proud of representing his country in Davis Cup, but personal differences with John Newcombe and Tony Roche interfered with his commitment early in his career. Despite several highly publicised feuds, Mark played a large part in giving Australia their 27th Davis Cup triumph - second only to the United States with 31 - but it was their first since 1986. In 1999 Mark defeated Cedric Pioline, 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-2 in front of a boisterous French crowd in Nice. Injuries plagued Mark's availability for Davis cup and was the cause of a public rift between team-mate Patrick Rafter and Lleyton Hewitt. Rafter publicly accused Philippoussis of 'jerking' the team around after he withdrew from a Davis Cup tie in late 2000. Philippoussis said Rafter was 'ill-informed' and upset by the lack of support and understanding from his team-mates. Knee surgeries forced Philippousis out of Davis Cup till February 2003. By then Pat Rafter had retired, and John Fitzgerald and Wally Masur were the new Davis Cup captain and coach. The impact of these changes was instantly recognised as team harmony was at its highest throughout the year. Mark Philippoussis once again sealed victory for Australia in the Melbourne Final against Spain. Mark beat Spain’s Juan Carlos Ferrero in a 7-5 6-3 1-6 2-6 6-0 battle. Mark suffered a pectoral tear at the end of the second set which caused him to lose the third and fourth sets. Displaying spectacular courage, Mark regrouped in the fifth set, and in immense pain, trounced Ferrero 6-0. [edit] 2003 comeback After three knee operations and a protracted comeback, Philippoussis avowed a new seriousness to his sport. He made himself available regularly for Davis Cup, hired a new physical trainer, and took up surfing as his new recreation. It seemed to work, as he made the 2003 Wimbledon final, finally losing to Roger Federer 7-6(7/5), 6-2, 7-6(7/3) [1]. During a 2003 Wimbledon tennis match against Andre Agassi (6-3, 2-6, 6-7 (4-7), 6-3, 6-4), he set a new Australian tennis record of 46 aces served in a match, three aces short of the overall ATP Tour record then held by Richard Krajicek. Philippoussis broke a two year singles title drought by winning the Shanghai Open in 2003. On November 30, 2003, he defeated Juan Carlos Ferrero of Spain to win the fourth match of the Davis Cup final in Melbourne, securing the title for Australia. This victory in front of his home crowd won him a place in the affections of the Australian sporting public which some of his behaviour in earlier years — including inconsistent Davis Cup appearances — had put in jeopardy. [edit] Fall from grace The honeymoon period with the Australian public, however, did not last. 2004 proved a disastrous year in terms of his tennis career and public profile. After shouldering most of the blame for losing Australia's Davis Cup tie with Sweden with an unexpected below par performance, Philippoussis struggled through to the Wimbledon fourth round in June 2004. From Wimbledon in June until the end of the season in October, he failed to win a single ATP tennis match and finished with one of his lowest ever rankings since turning professional in 1994. In October 2004, a much publicized affair with Delta Goodrem had soured and seriously damaged his standing after newspapers alleged that he had dated Paris Hilton while with Goodrem. In March 2005, he became engaged to Miami-born actress and model Alexis Barbara. The Age reported the pair had split in July 2006, but Philippoussis has denied this to Australian tabloid New Idea. He confirmed to Sydney's Daily Telegraph on August 23, 2006, that he fired his father as his coach and rehired Peter McNamara in an attempt to revive his career.[3] [edit] 2006 Return After some controversy over his wildcard selection firstly after a disappointing 2006 Australian Open, Philipoussis made more headlines when he again earned entry into the 2006 Wimbledon. He was defeated in the 2nd round. Leading into the Campbell's Hall of Fame Championships as a wildcard, his record was a modest 6-7. He had a fantastic run in the tournament, getting all the way to the final, where he defeated Justin Gimelstob in straight sets to claim his first title in almost three years. Philippoussis, currently ranked #114, lost to Rafael Nadal as a wildcard entry in the 1st round of the 2006 US Open. The Australian Davis Cup team lost against Argentina in an unpredictable 5-0. On Friday (September 22nd) Mark was defeated by David Nalbandian 6-4 6-3 6-3, in the first match of the series. Philippoussis has played in a series of Challenger tournaments since the Davis Cup semifinals. Philippoussis won the Calabasas tournament, defeating Amer Delic 6-7(4-7), 7-6(7-4), 6-3 in the final. [edit] 2007 Philippoussis beat Russian Dmitry Tursunov 6-4 7-6 at the 2007 Hopman Cup However, during his second match against Jerome Haehnel, he was forced to retire after hyperextending his knee.[citation needed] An MRI showed that he had torn cartilage in his knee, forcing him to miss the Australian Open.

  • I've always wanted to go to paris! When i grow older i really want to go. Am i making a big deal over nothing? Is paris really all that great? I mean-i love paris! I've never gone but it sounds amazing! Please help! I dont want to waist money on a big trip when if im not going to like it. Also,if anyone knows how much a plane ticket is for one person-from California to paris-there and back-could you let me know? Thank you so very much!
  • There is nothing wrong with wanting to go to Paris! I'm hoping to go there within the next year or two. Start looking up sites to see now so that by the time you actually go, you'll have a better idea what you really want to see and what you'd like to see if you have time. Some things you may want to see while you are there: Disney Land Paris- if you love Disney it would be cool to see another country's theme park, especially if you've been to the ones in the US (and everyone there speaks decent English). The Eiffel Tower- duh. ^^ L'Arc de Triomphe- Famous monument in Paris. Also see the smaller version, Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel The Louvre- famous art museum where the Mona Lisa is on display Notre Dame- gorgeous cathedral (if you've ever seen Disney's "The Hunchback of Notre Dame"....) Paris Opera House- If you are a musical person or have ever seen "Phantom of the Opera", this is the actual opera house that the original book was written about. Box 5 is the "Phantom's Box" Also try to branch out and see as much of the country as you can! Other things you can do throughout France are go hiking/skiing in the mountains (depending on when you go there), see a french film in french, go swimming in the sea, etc. As far as flights, prices are always changing. looking at a price now for a trip that may not happen for another 3 years will give you a general idea, but cannot be guaranteed to be the same when you actually book your flight. However, keep in mind that the earlier you purchase your tickets the less expensive they are. Booking a year in advance will be your cheapest option. Be sure to also research your hotel selections. You will probably want to have something closer to the city so you don't have to worry about renting a car. Walking will obviously be your cheapest travel solution. You will also want to make sure your hotel is a decent place and not sketchy. If you are still in school, look into hosting a French exchange student. I have hosted 2 and it was a wonderful experience! One of them has since returned and stayed with me again this past summer for a month and is the reason why I'm hoping to go to France. Making connections with people who live there may also give you a place to stay (even if only for a couple nights) and will save you some cash to spend on other things. Hopefully this is enough information to get you started with your planning! Good luck and Bon Voyage! :D
