Frequently asked questions about california loan online

  • Yep, they will snag it before you even see it. I have a similar problem with an SBA loan. The fed snags it. Bastards...=(
  • Yur refund will be minus the loan amount due
  • not doing your free file on the IRS website when your return is processed the lien will become apparent and the refund withheld
  • Turbo does not need to know this - the IRS already knows and will take care of intercepting it.
  • You could post your add on free online classifieds for your area!
  • Have you signed up with the National Notary Association, the Notary Signing Agent Section? It's really slow in CA, but good luck.
  • Go online. Need a host? www.dreameehost.com Need a name, logo, and slogan? go to www.dreameedesign.com
  • A fellow nursing student discovered that if you are a nurse at an indian reservation/ground (like cashe creeke in California), the government will pay off your student loans. I tried to look it up online, but discovered no information. Can anyone help me out? Also, this question is not meant to be offensive unlike that idiot that suggested so on the comment below. Her answer has no relevance to my question.
  • This link may help you... I don't live in the US... I'm not a US Citizen... But my advice is call the numbers available on this website link... I studied in the US afew years back and it's all about calling around, not just looking on the internet. It's a beginning but it's not a starting point... Hope that helps you out.
  • Ya know, I don't know if you are being serious...or just ignorant. You must not of payed attention in school. This question deserves no answer. All I know is, my ancesters struggled to save their land, and it was stripped from them.
  • Contact your bank, tell them you don't know who charged you. They should provide you with the phone number the company used when they charged your account (it may not show on your statement, but the bank can look it up). Call the number and ask them what that's all about. If the charge is not authorized, then tell them to credit you back or you will have the bank charge it back to them (which they don't want, it counts against them). If nothing works, tell your bank you want to dispute the charge, they'll walk you through the process. Here are some of the most common legitimate, but sneaky charges people will find: 1). Checks: You get a check in the mail for $5 or something like that, it says it's a customer appreciation check. On the back it says that it's a reward for a membership program that costs $90/year (for example) and by depositing the check you agree to the membership unless you cancel within a certain timeframe. This is perfectly legal but is sneaky. Most of these companies will refund the unused portion of the money back to you (although they'll take their sweet time giving it back, like a couple of weeks). 2). Verification: you sign up for a free trial online or you are visiting a site that requires you to confirm your credit card number to show that you are an adult. In small print it says if you don't cancel within a couple of days they can start charging you a monthly fee. There are others, but these are the most common. If the charge is truly fraudulent, you'll want to change your debit card number (if this was charged through the debit card), or your account number (if it was a direct ACH debit), but then you'd have to change all of your automatic bills and direct deposits.
  • there is a clear lake business solutions in clear lake california but i dont know why theyd take money from your account
  • Go back to your library and ask if they can get a copy from another library through inter-library loan.
  • You need to approach title companies and offer your services. Provide them with a business card and reliable contact info. You may also want to contact some of the online banks that do loans & mortgages. They send notaries out to do closings for them.
  • What financial institutions operating in California will offer me a secure personal loan if I put up my BMW motorcycle as collateral? Looking online I only seem to find financial institutions that allow people to offer their homes or home equity or cars as collateral. I'm in California and I am currently unemployed.
  • WITH NO JOB AND A BIKE IT IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY UNLESS YOU GO TO PREDATORY LENDERS THAT WILL WHACK YOU WITH HIGH FEES AND INTEREST .

  • Adore: The US Department of Education publishes a really great introduction to the financial aid system - it's called "Funding Education Beyond High School: The Guide to Federal Student Aid". Despite the title, the booklet actually goes beyond just the federal aid programs, and provides some helpful information about other forms of non-government aid, like scholarships. It's definitely a useful read, and your parents will find it informative, too, because there's information about help for parents, too. I'd strongly recommend that you start with this pamphlet, because you'll learn what kinds of programs are out there - who qualifies for them - how much is available - and how to apply. I'm linking to the Department of Education home for the online copy of the booklet, but if you'd rather read it offline, stop by the counseling office at your school, and ask for a copy of "Funding Education Beyond High School". Good luck to you - I hope this answers all of your questions.

  • For starters, please tell us what country you're in. State too, if applicable.
  • Hey Thename, Anyone under the age of 18 years of age has to wear a helmet while riding any bicycle, scooter, skates or skateboard on any PUBLIC roadway, highway, bicycle path or street. The key word is Public. If your neighborhood is located on a private roadway then the law does not apply on private land. Here is the California Vehicle Code section: 21212. (a) A person under 18 years of age shall not operate a bicycle, a nonmotorized scooter, or a skateboard, nor shall they wear in-line or roller skates, nor ride upon a bicycle, a nonmotorized scooter, or a skateboard as a passenger, upon a street, bikeway, as defined in Section 890.4 of the Streets and Highways Code, or any other public bicycle path or trail unless that person is wearing a properly fitted and fastened bicycle helmet that meets the standards of either the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) or the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), or standards subsequently established by those entities. This requirement also applies to a person who rides upon a bicycle while in a restraining seat that is attached to the bicycle or in a trailer towed by the bicycle. (b) Any helmet sold or offered for sale for use by operators and passengers of bicycles, nonmotorized scooters, skateboards, or in-line or roller skates shall be conspicuously labeled in accordance with the standard described in subdivision (a) which shall constitute the manufacturer's certification that the helmet conforms to the applicable safety standards. (c) No person shall sell, or offer for sale, for use by an operator or passenger of a bicycle, nonmotorized scooter, skateboard, or in-line or roller skates any safety helmet which is not of a type meeting requirements established by this section. (d) Any charge under this subdivision shall be dismissed when the person charged alleges in court, under oath, that the charge against the person is the first charge against that person under this subdivision, unless it is otherwise established in court that the charge is not the first charge against the person. (e) Except as provided in subdivision (d), a violation of this section is an infraction punishable by a fine of not more than twenty-five dollars ($25). The parent or legal guardian having control or custody of an unemancipated minor whose conduct violates this section shall be jointly and severally liable with the minor for the amount of the fine imposed pursuant to this subdivision. (f) Notwithstanding Section 1463 of the Penal Code or any other provision of law, the fines collected for a violation of this section shall be allocated as follows: (1) Seventy-two and one-half percent of the amount collected shall be deposited in a special account of the county health department, to be used for bicycle, nonmotorized scooter, skateboard, and in-line and roller skate safety education and for assisting low-income families in obtaining approved bicycle helmets for children under the age of 18 years, either on a loan or purchase basis. The county may contract for the implementation of this program, which, to the extent practicable, shall be operated in conjunction with the child passenger restraint program pursuant to Section 27360. (2) Two and one-half percent of the amount collected shall be deposited in the county treasury to be used by the county to administer the program described in paragraph (1). (3) If the violation occurred within a city, 25 percent of the amount collected shall be transferred to and deposited in the treasury of that city. If the violation occurred in an unincorporated area, this 25 percent shall be deposited and used pursuant to paragraph (1). Added Ch. 1000, Stats. 1993. Effective January 1, 1994. Amended Sec. 6, Ch. 674, Stats. 1996. Effective January 1, 1997. Amended Sec. 1, Ch. 475, Stats. 2002. Effective January 1, 2003. Kimber
  • The police officers in long coastline in many situations have extra suitable issues to do than provide tickets to little ones not donning bike helmets. If an officer does provide up you than be polite because of the fact once you're a jerk they provides you with a cost ticket. Be apologetic. From chatting with the police in LBC distinctive bikers and drivers of vehicles do not obey the site visitors rules. which ability you may run right into a motor vehicle or a motor vehicle might hit you. The police do not choose for to work out the faces of toddlers not donning helmets everywhere in the pavement. provide up at provide up signs and indicators and at purple lights.
  • not aloud
  • I havent, but I think you don't qualify for financial aid there.. like for fafsa grants/ect. I think they are suppose to be good, but financing your tuition through a bank instead of federal grants or loans would be tough.
  • Gas prices are increasing so I was wondering how high do you think they will go? And also, I can't seem to wrap my mind around this but if gas prices increase and more people cancel their summer plans to save money, how will that result in a profit? I just don't understand. I mean, if gas prices go to $8/gal for example, more people will start using public transportation and not cars. So how do you get a profit?
  • In my area Fuel is just under $5 gal. When it goes above $5.50 to $6 - the economy will start falling quickly, housing markets will spiral down and roads will be easy to travel on, plus trucking companies will bankrupt, goods & foods harder to get. Yahoo Liberals won't allow my question to be posted - check my questions = never posted. Example question: Could this be a reason for High Fuel Prices? Obama Underwrites Offshore Drilling http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424..."The U.S. Export-Import Bank tells us it has issued a "preliminary commitment" letter to Petrobras in the amount of $2 billion and has discussed with Brazil the possibility of increasing that amount. Ex-Im Bank says it has not decided whether the money will come in the form of a direct loan or loan guarantees." U.S. Government Loaned Mexican Government More Than $1 Billion to Drill Oil in Gulf of Mexico Last Year; Has $1 Billion More Planned For This Year http://cnsnews.com/news/article/72342Drilling in the Gulf is OK’d for Brazil, Mexico, Cuba, China, Venezuela etc. BUT NOT for ALL US Companies!

  • California has the one of the highest gasoline tax in the US. It being a liberal democrat state that shouldn't be surprising. But its freeway and streets are still poorly maintained despite its high tax rate. Americans depend too much on oil and gasoline that's the problem. Gas prices drive up food prices, airplane tickets, transportation costs and everything, even car sales. because Americans depend so much on gas, when there is a rise in gas price people will drive less for a short while, but return to driving after a while.
  • When I lived in the LA area, until last summer, when gas was $4.80 a gallon in 2008 still did not stop my daughter and I from doing a road trip from LA to Pittsburgh. Really, even at $8.00 a gallon your insurance and maintenance costs as much as gas does. I live in Vancouver now and gas is $5.25 a gallon and no one that drives has changed to the bus. Transit is just too inconvenient in comparison. In the UK gas is $10 a gallon and the roads are all jammed with cars. I will give up coffee and alcohol before giving up driving.
  • The State of California operates its own reformulated gas software with greater stringent standards than Federally-mandated clean gasolines. as nicely to the better fee of cleanser gas, there's a blended State and local sales and use tax of seven.25 % on suited of an 18.4 cent-in step with-gallon federal excise tax and an 18.0 cent-in step with-gallon State excise tax. Refinery margins have additionally been larger due commonly to cost volatility interior the area.
  • First, math: If gasoline cost doubles, they double the profits. If they see a 25% drop in gasoline they get a 50% increase in profits. Second, people: While some small percentage of people will drive less, most people will simply complain while still running their big SUV, trucks, sports cars, etc..
  • Expect $5 a gallon by June.
  • gas is around 3.70/gal here in the midwest....I think 4-4.25 is the threshold...people simply can pay that much as spread out as we are and the burden we have with high food prices...so when it hits $4/gallon ( an it will soon) you will see another dip in the economy....
  • Here is a link for the Fair Debt Collections Act. http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer...
  • If you want to be a pharmacist, you need to have a desire to educate yourself. That means doing this kind of research on your own rather than asking others to google it for you and give you the answer. Schools list their tuition online. As far as the job market, bls.gov lists job outlook. In SoCal, just about EVERYTHING tends to be super competitive, so take long hard around to see how many job listings there are in your area. I've heard that the number of grads exceeds the number of jobs, but I did not hear it from a scientific survey of the pharmacist job market in SoCal. USC and Loma Linda are excellent schools with a prestigious reputation in health care professions. Good Luck
  • I travel quite a bit for work. I would normally prefer a brick and mortar university, but an online program seems like it would fit better with my schedule. I am curious as to how much time is spent per week on these programs, what school you went through, and what the cost would be. Also if you have any info on their financial aid/loans that would be great. Thanks!
  • Yes, I have done my MBA at CalUniversity.edu, which offers distance learning programs, admission’s counselors will make your education experience smoother and easier than you ever thought possible. You can take up any of the new courses among several Masters and Doctorate programs available. CalUniversity.edu now proudly announces the “California InterContinental University 2009 Scholarship Prize Essay Contest” which offers the winner a fee waiver of $3000 on registering for a course at CalU. Since, every participant is a winner and it was decided to offer a fee waiver of $2000 for every unique participant.
  • on line MBA courses are provided by utilising NIBM (national Institute of employer administration). those classes contain a million 3 hundred and sixty 5 days government MBA and different a million 3 hundred and sixty 5 days and a couple of years on line courses. NIBM has earned the accreditation of the two IAO and AACBE and subsequently it quite is a reputed institute. examine the respected website of NIBM for extra.
  • You should check out http://www.adelphi.edu/manhattan/busines... and see if they have online programs i am pretty sure that they do. I went there but not online which i would suggest because i feel like you learn alot more when you actually attend the classes. You should try and make it to classes but check it out anyways!
  • I traded my car in at the dealership, however I don't have the title. When I purchased my vehicle, I took out a personal loan. After I paid off the loan, I never received the title, and my bank said they also do not have the title. Is there a way to check online; like type my name or the VIN number into a search engine and it will tell you what vehicles are registered in your name? Or whose name the vehicle is registered in?
  • The only way to know is to call the DMV.
  • 2
  • You can try CARFAX but you should call the dealership if they financed the car and ask about the title. Are you sure you paid off the loan?
  • I live in California, and Online it says it is required for males between 18 and 25 to register within 30 days; however, I was told in my high school government class that its no longer required to register for the selective service and I turned 18 over 7 months ago and have yet to receive any notification on registering. I have received federal financial aid in the form of a PELL grant. Is my government teacher correct or do I still need to register?
  • No registration = No grants or student loans. Yes, you are required to register within 30 days of your 18th birthday. http://www.sss.gov/default.htm
  • If you haven't registered and received Federal assistance, then you're lucky. The system will catch up with you and you can kiss those Government freebies goodbye! Let me ask you this. If the Selective Service Administration website says you have to register, why would you believe some dumba$$ high school teacher?
  • Your government teacher is incorrect. Not registering is a federal offense punishable by fines and prison time.
  • Hi, I am going to the Honda Dealership in Southern California tomorrow and would like to find out more about the types of fees I will be required to pay. The offer I see online is the 2011 Honda Accord Coupe 5 Speed Automatic LX-S for lease. It says: $0 due a lease signing (excludes taxes, titles, and dealer fees), $0 security deposit, $0 down payment, $0 first month payment, and $270 per month for 35 months thereafter. After all these deals, what fees should I be charged for? I know that I should be charged for the tax of the car and some other fees that I am not aware of. Also, what is the current documentation fee for the state of California? Can it be negotiable between me and the salesman? I would highly appreciate your response! It would help me a lot. Thank you.
  • Taxes tend to run 8-10% in CA. Title fee is probably $16.50-75.00. Doc fee is not set by the state but dealers can charge whatever you will pay. I would guess many are in the $249-799 range. Everything is negotiable but they wont remove it, just lower the price if they do agree to lower it. It means you will have to pay ALL the taxes, title & doc fee upfront. Only people with very good credit & jobs can qualify. Not in the top 25%, don't bother. That usually means mid 20s with several years on the job & prior car & credit card loans.
  • i could convey all your settlement info to the dealership & have a verbal replace with the used vehicle supervisor. call until now you bypass to be certain he's there. yet, maximum used vehicle managers are cool. in simple terms sit down with him & have him clarify to you the appropriate registration technique. You have been prolly bombarded with a lot of information once you signed all that workplace work at delivery time & could have been informed deceptive information. do no longer call the chief, in simple terms take place. you're able to no longer be identifying to purchase registration to the earlier years of no longer possessing the motor vehicle! yet you're able to owe for the time YOU owned it. yet assume to pay some thing yet, sit down with the guy & be cool with him & he could be sturdy back. in case you threatin criminal action, you will pay much extra in criminal costs particularly the 4-5 hundred in DMV costs. So be clever approximately this....
  • I have no idea for sure but I think it would be a justified cost for a collection company or any other creditor to charge. They are owed money which was intended to be paid without any effort. This effort is an extra cost incurred on them to get thier money owed. They should not be forced to take a loss in order to get an original cost so I think if it isn't legal it definately should ber. but I'm pretty sure it is kosher.
  • Usually not. Many credit unions offer back doors to people who do not qualify to join under the regular credit union membership charter. For example, with NASA FCU, a person can join the NSS for a small fee which will then allow you to join the NASA credit union Justice FCU you can join the National Sheriffs' Association Patelco FCU you can join the California Association for Older Americans. (anyone can join that assocation no matter what their age is or what state they are in) Not all credit unions have those back doors, but many do. If there is a credit union in your area or online that you want to join, look up their membership eligibility on their websites.
  • doubt it....they are really strict about that.Try joining, there membership fee is generally low. Or find someone who is a memeber to help you out.
  • I live in Santa clarita california. I want to go to UCSB an getinto the marine biology/ecology program. But the problem is its 2 hours away an my parents cant afford for me to Live there, my brother was gonna go to CSUN or some place close by so he can still live at home an save money. But if i go to ucsb i cant afford to live there. Is there a way? Is there even time for me to have a job while in college? What are scholarships exactly?? Please
  • You have to go online and fill out the FAFSA form to get financial aid. But then you also have to decide if you will be able to handle graduating from college and paying back loans for many many years! It's possible to go to college on all or mostly loans, but you also have to make sure you get a job right out of college and pay them back (this is what I'm doing...my parents could not afford anything to send me to college). You can also go to the college website and they will have a link to fill out applications for specific scholarships.
  • I don't know about marine biology/ecology, but if there's a program you're interested in that you could do at Cal Poly Pomona that is around 45 minutes away from Northridge.
  • I would imagine that the La Brea Tar Pits have those kinds of skeletons in their collection. Its the remains of a USA Endangered Species so there would be red tape involved in getting one but if its an actual museum then it should be possible, at least as a loan to the museum. I don't know that though since I have no connection to the La Brea Tar Pits or any museum...
  • I've heard the average aid package from the school I plan on going to is anywhere from 14-17k a year. I used an online estimator to see how much I was going to get, and it said 16-17k. How is this possible if Pell Grants only go up to 5k+? Where is all the other money coming from? What is the award breakdown for your aid? or the typical person who gets student aid?
  • Federal student loans Scholarships Parent PLUS loans Grants offered by the school State grants (if you're an in-state student) Additional federal grants (information available on the fafsa website - under the FAQs section)
  • *Two states above you* I bank with BOA at the moment. I will be going to moving 3 hours away to transfer to a 4-year university and pretty much be living off of whatever financial aid packages the school can give me. I may also have to take out some private loans ontop of the Staffard and or PP loans. Money management is key dude. I like Bob because you can control your finances online. You have your savings account and your checking account. you can also link your account to a parents account If they send you money ... if need be. Also, Its good to have your financial aid(living money) put into your savings each year. Take out what you need each month by transferring(all can be done with a click online) your savings to your checking. I boa is prettyconvenientt because of these features. very student friendly. Ohh and so you dont phuq yourself over, its also good to consider having your parents have their own boa account holding your financial aid money for school. this way, they can distribute when you need to pay rent each month and whatever else. lol best to not be tempted with the thousands in your checking account..... its never a good game plan to go this route. heard some scary Shiiit. ppl running out of tuition/ room board money. the checking account should be for simple stuff; IE. Gas money, Subway, movies, school supplies, food, and other random little stuff. hope this helps
  • BoA is always good. Chase *was* good until they started charging a yearly fee for checking, and a ridiculous ATM fee. =/ Cal National is also good, because they will cover all of your ATM fees.
  • They are a California firm that is advertising heavily to represent people who want to do a modification. Do not pay anyone to do a modification for you. The bank will offer you the same deal with or without an attorney. There are forums online for people doing modifications and you don't get much for you money when you hire RA. Most modifications tend to be 4 months with no payments and one year at 4.5% interest. Enuf to get you thru a tough time. You have to fit in a narrow window. If you earn too much money, you don't qualify for a mod. If you earn too little money, you don't qualify for the mod.
  • I let her use the laptop because she was out of work, and used it to post things for sale online. She now will not send the laptop to me in florida, she lives in california, and she is claiming that she is just going to keep it. What should I do? The laptop is registered to my name and is no longer in the same state as me, and in order to have HP track it, I have to report it stolen. I've tried talking to the girl, but so far no luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  • If she will not return it, it is stolen.
  • You only have one option and that is to report it stolen.But if and it's a big if,the police in Ca even bother to go to her house all she has to say is you gave it to her and then later tried to get it back.They will not take it from her.Anyone who thinks they will does not have much experience with the police.They will not spend manpower time on something like this.
  • Regardless of the story you can simply report it stolen no questions asked. It's under your name, therefore they won't listen to her story.
  • I'm currently living back home in Los Angeles, CA, possibly in what's been the worst past few weeks of my life so far, broke, unemployed, in debt with college loans, and to top if off, once again with my tight-up parents (I love them, don't get me wrong, but sometimes I feel a bit suffocated). I would appreciate any advice/help you could give me as to where I could possibly apply for History major jobs/internships, preferably in the California, but open to almost anywhere in the States. If it makes any difference, I'm also fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. Any suggestions will be more than appreciated, honestly.
  • Look for non-profit organizations, universities, museums, research centers, etc.
  • I would not recommend hitchhiking. You could get stranded in a cold place and have to pay for a hotel room and wait for a ride. If there is someone in California who could loan you the money, or pay for your ticket, then find a cheap ticket online. Offer to work for them for free when you get there, to pay them back. If you want to buy a ticket and don't have the bucks, sell something of yours or look around for some kind of odd jobs you could do, like digging holes, stacking firewood, etc. Another idea would be to start putting up signs on the ride board at your nearest University, advertise on Craigslist and generally put the word out that you need a ride, if anyone is driving out of state. That might get you through Canada and into the rest of the USA (providing you have a passport, so you can get across the border---if you don't, you'll have to fly). Then, you can try to hitchhike, if that's what you want to do.
  • Do a flight search on pricegossip.com It's a travel price comparison site. They always have the lowest price flight no matter what you search for. I use it all the time. I'm sure you can find something affordable on it. Good luck.
  • Without spending money?...U can't
  • You can Hitch Hike. Put your thumb up, and away you go. Cheers from DOWNUNDER
  • Since my benefits have ended as of last month and I am doing everything possible to work AND find a job that pays me enough to survive, I am wondering what resources I can get to help me. I have already gone online to research social services (been to the VA since I am a veteran too) and been turned down for everything, because I apparently made too much money last year. That's a no on ER loans, food stamps, or any 'programs'. If you are single, educated, not addicted to anything and have no children it seems you are S.O.L. Anybody know who can help me keep a roof over my head? Reasonable replies only. Thank you
  • I have been networking, borrowing from friends and family, and am taking ANYTHING in the form of a job, despite being highly educated. IT IS tough out there. VERY tough. There are about 1000 applying for every job. Whoever lies and says we aren't in a recession is out of their collective minds. Lying government!
  • i have found the best way to find help (job) is though networking your friends -- you may have to relocate but the jobs are out there is you are not seekingto high of a position!!!
  • try going to the VFW's and asking around Dear I know what you mean I am divorced and 50% of my paycheck goes to child support, that leaves me living on 500 a month and I don't even qualify for benefits.
  • You could do online classes for a year, but make sure they transfer. You could also apply for scholarships or take out a student loan. If your grades are good/you were an exceptional high school student, see if they could give you in-state tuition (doubtful, but some schools can sometimes). Good luck!
  • so i graduated from a public university in california with a BS in business Administration...it's been almost a year and I can't find work. I"ve been incredibly depressed and been maniacal for the last month, crying on and off. although i know freakin out won't help my situation, but i seriously dont know what else to do. My last employment ended at the beginning of 2010 so i don't have any recent work experience. I thought having a degree would help me land a job easier, but it definitely has not. I've tried many temp agencies, but most can't find me a job because of my lack of recent work experience What do I do ? I have student loans as well
  • I have tried networking....all I talk about is my lack of luck finding a job. Initially, I wanted to find a job that relates to my degree, but now I'm just trying to find a job that I've had experience in which is customer service. I've worked at call centers and walmart as customer service representative. I even took it a step further and tried to find the HR numbers and called them directly whenever I see a job posting online.
  • IF I were you, I would go to Career Services at your University. Some of them would even help you find open spaces for you. Also try, www.careerbuilder.com . I found at least a decent job in cleaning/janitor that helped me pay my bills. Good Luck!
  • Unfortunately, that is just an all to familiar story as a result of our current economy. Here's a couple of ideas. 1. Start networking with friends and family about 80% of the jobs filled were never publish publically 2. Go to work for a fast food resturant or manufacturing to gain experience. 3. Start doing some volunteer work, this will give you some experience an perhaps additional networking opportunities. Another thing you can do is set-up a linkdin account where you are connected to thousands of working professionals. I wish there was more that I could recommend but the current state of the economy makes it difficult. GOOD LUCK and I hope this helps a little!!
  • Answers from former or current students faculty and prospective students is very helpful. I am interested in attending Le Cordon Bleu of Pasadena and I went and visited the campus yesterday afternoon and was given a tour by one of the Admissions reps. I Applied and am returning to work on my FAFSA on Thursday. The campus looked amazing and I left thoroughly excited to attend the school, Even though the tuition would be extremely difficult for me to manage without a student loan. Anyway my concern is that while looking at reviews online of the school I was hard pressed to find more that 3 good reviews. I just wanted to hear from some more people what their experience was like. Some of my concerns are: -Unqualified/Burnt out teachers that are told to ' Pass everyone through' -Understocked kitchens in which a ' hands on' experience in unable to be achieved -Over crowded classrooms that the teachers are unable/unwilling to control -Feeling unprepared after leaving the program due to ' Unrealistic practices' In the classroom kitchen and student run restaurant Please help me out and tell me about your experience, your program, your teachers and how you are doing now.
  • If you are a California resident, then the Culinary Program at Cal Poly Pomona is a far better value. You'll also have the opportunity to pursue specialized areas of food science or hospitality management, with graduate programs. All for a fraction of the cost of the Cordon Bleu program.
  • So like I said in my last question I'm only in the 10th grade. I would like to get a head start for college. But I just don't know what scholarships or grants are out there. My house does have low income. And I am African American. I'm not sure if that helps but yeah. The school I would like to attend is a little high. And I would really like to go. So please help me?
  • If you take the time to look online, you'll find plenty of scholarships. As for grants, you can apply for the Pell Grant at FAFSA.gov. You also apply for federal student loans on this site, so pay attention to what you accept from your school after you are given an award. Also, check to see if your state offers grants as some do. California has the Cal Grant, New York has the TAP Program, and some states have the HOPE Scholarship.
  • You can get a grant for any reason. You can get a grant for being black because schools want to be more diverse. Also take ACT prep. classes.
  • Your wife's credit will not be affected. How could it be? She's not on the loan. Its not necessary, but to get her name off the deed, go to the office supply store and pick up a quit claim deed, or get one online. Fill it out and have it recorded at city hall.
  • No it will only hurt yours since you are on the loan.
  • Yes it will.
  • Hmmm...you could get roomies that would help you pay, or sell stuff/services online...
  • You will need to apply for financial aid at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Because of your age, you will still be required to list your parents information and income even if you don't live with them and if they don't claim you on their taxes. I'm attaching a publication, in the back is a chart with the maximum loan amounts you can borrow. The amount depends on your year of school - 3,500 for freshman and 4,500 for sophomores. If mom is insistent on you moving out, consider moving in with another relative or a friend. Good Luck.
  • Okay. I am 14 years old..live in California in an apartment. I can't do yard work or anything..everyone hires professionals.. I can't work ..because I am 14... and my parents will NOT let me do surveys online or anything like that... But I need to earn $2000.... I know I sound like a pain...but any suggestions?
  • -Do chores so your parents give you money -Find money lying on the streets(it's not much but will add up) -Try your luck at lottery? -Beg on the streets?? -Ask friends/ relatives to loan some money Not much you could do. Hope these ideas will spark new ones!

  • First of all, what state are you in? In California, where I'm at, it's a community property state and any debts incurred during the marraige are split equally, regardless of who's name they're in. If you check online for your county/state, there's a ton of self-help info. on divorce that covers any question that could possibly come up. Good luck - sounds like it's a good thing you're getting rid of him.
  • The credit card company is not concerned with your personal situation or that the purchased items were shared by both of you. The card is in your name; you're the only person they are going to look to for payment. You may be able to get the bigger portion of your assets in the divorce to offset the credit card balance, but don't count on it. Sounds like he will be the type that will spend a fortune in attorney's fees rather than let you get what you rightfully should have. Consider it a life lesson. Genius Species and Foxhound brought up a very good point: alimony. I agreed to a settlement with my ex 2 yrs ago which gave him 70% of what we had in order to do an uncontested divorce quickly (2 months), and I thank my lucky stars daily because he quit his job the month after our divorce and I keep thinking how close I came to possibly having to pay alimony. Don't squabble over minutia or the fairness of the situation and run the risk of this thing going into court. You would not be the first woman paying an ex alimony.
  • Whilst they are married, legally he has to take some responsibility for it. Only because when they divide assets/debts in a divorce settlement they take 'all' into consideration. The courts will need copies of her statements, if they were to divorce, to see what the money is being spent on and thats when the husband can plead ignorance/innocence. If she is spending it on herself and not the needs of the family then he has a really good chance of not being responsible for it. He needs to start checking her statements now and photocopy them because if they do divorce, he will need to prove the money was not being spent for the good of the family and to get copies of these statements, it comes with a heavy fee of between $10 and $50 per monthly statement. Good luck!
  • Bring these up in divorce court and let the judge make him half responsible for any and all marital debt. Courts dont really care what he says, the judge has the final say so and what he says goes into the divorce decree and he has to follow or face the consequences if he doesnt In your case,the law is on your side. Good luck
  • That depends on the law of the state where you live. In general, credit card debt incurred during the marriage is subject to equitable division. But, even if divided that does not end the problem. If the cards were in your name and he is ordered to pay part or all of them the credit card issuer is not bound by that order and may look to you for payment in most states. Good luck.
  • Technically yes. But you have everything in your name right? Who signed on the card when it was used? He could easily say you just spent the money and the burden of proof would be on you. What proof do you have that you had blended your finances? Here's the thing. You have to look at what you owe. If you have a house, or were doing remodeling your have some credit and assets. You press the point and he could counter sue for the house, cars, retirement or even alimony. You might even lose everything so tread lightly.
  • If your are in England the answer is yes. There are still some archaic laws, one of which says that a husband is responsible for his wifes dbt, however incurred and regardless of whether it was in joint names. However, a wife is not responsible for her husbands debt unless it was in joint names. This dates back to the times when women were not allowed bank accounts in ther own right.
  • Just put it in your divorce papers that you are not responsible and tell your lawyer you want your husband to pay the debt off and that can be done..
  • Yeah, he is responsible for the part he charged but legally you are screwed. If the cards are in your name and your name only all he has to say is that he didn't charge sh**t on them. Also, if you were supporting him you are likely to end up paying HIM alimony. You supported him during the marriage they could make you after, if he asks for it. Sorry, but you are going to get stuck with ALL the bills.
  • I don't think he's legally responsible for the monies owed unless you can prove that the purchases were for the house or something for him, etc. Dig out receipts and old statements to prove it. Put it down on your divorce papers and talk to the judge.
  • I drove down from portland to san francisco this summer and received two parking tickets from the san francisco DPT: one for 50$ and one for 60$. grrr. Anyways I checked online a month ago and saw that my tickets increased 25 bucks per ticket. I checked last night and now they're doubled!! Is there a ceiling on the amount of times they increase these tickets? Is my parking ticket going to be 10,000 dollars in a few years?
  • No, they're not going to come to Oregon to "get" you. In most cases, they will not pursue the matter at all. However, if you're the owner of the car, be advised that vindictive DMV officials are not above reporting you to a collection agency for the sole purpose of destroying your credit rating. It doesn't happen often. But there have been some horror stories. So, there's a minor risk of getting busted when you're applying for a home loan and such. Also, should you choose to ignore it, you need to make sure you don't get caught doing anything illegal in California (for as long as you're using that car). If you're arrested for any reason in this state, it might come back to haunt you when they decide to pull up your vehicle registration.
  • I found nothing about a ceiling on the tickets, other than the statement that "late fees will continue to accumulate." And true, since tickets in SF have been decriminalized (and as such, no warrants are issued), you don't really have to pay. However, if you get a few more on your next visit, your car could be booted and/or towed.
  • Have the lawyer put it in writing.
  • I currently have a loan out on a motorcycle and I sent my payment in to the billing company, but due to Veterans day it was a day late and they charged me a $40 late fee. I spoke with the customer manager and they told me even though it doesn't state in there contract that they do not go by postmarked date, and rather by the day the receive the payment. They do not allow online bill paying and charge a $10 fee every time you call over the phone and pay the bill. Just seems to me that in the signed contract should state they won't go by the postmarked date. Also, I live in California and the company is based out of Georgia.
  • ALL contracts go by the date received, the postmarked date is totally irrelevant. They do not need to specify that because it is general contract law.
  • Doesn't matter when you mail it... No they don't have to disclose that... It's just the way It is in the real world. Postmarked date means zero. Get it there note or pay the fee.
  • I have been a student at University of Phoenix Online , for two years. I will have my associates degree in 7 months. I am at a crossroads because I just got married and want to move to california. I am in school to become a liscened Psychologists the state will not except distance learning , so my degree will mean nothing, nor will my credits transfer to any college.

  • I will go somewhere else.
  • Hello I am currently conducting a study/research at the University of California - San Diego about the conspiracy of life on mars. I am currently supporting the fact that life is possible on mars. My current argument dicusses the following: Early thoughts (What has been proven and what theories failed?) Water on mars ( Liquidified and gas form ) recent disovery of methane and how it supports the fact of life on mars Biological life possibility (Human, Bacteria, etc.) Meteorites (ALH 84001 and the SNC) I would like to ask the following: 1- What other conspiracies/sub topics can i add onto my research to support my thesis? 2- What good resourceful books are available that supports my research that i can use? Please type in name, author and year Thanks :)
  • I can understand your first question; your second question could potentially be location-oriented. Your university library should have an online (as well as offline) resource on which you can search for books immediately available to you, as well as request they be loaned to your university for your use; they may also provide articles from peer-reviewed publications (non-books like journals) both online and off (ask about "Jstor" in particular). Research is your work to do, not the work of strangers on the internet (partially because they may suggest articles that aren't scientifically substantial, and you wouldn't know). If you have questions on how to best utilize a search engine in a library setting, feel free to ask about that instead. If you look up information on Wiki, it is sometimes also supported by book and journal resources in the footnotes... you can start there.
  • From what I understand, scientists think it's just possible that there *might* be life still on Mars, hidden away inside rocks or otherwise underground, where it's possible to get some access to liquid water, and there's some protection from the harsh environment outside. That sort of life has been found inside rocks in the Dry Valleys in Antarctica. So something like that seems just within the realm of possibility, but it's still considered a long shot.
  • Before you can convince me that life can exist on Mars, you have to explain how to protect life from Solar Radiation. Mars has a very thin atmosphere and no magnetic field, therefore it feels the full brunt of the Solar Wind and this sterilizes Mars.
  • Suppose you had $50K....how would you use it to become rich? I would use it towards a business, but not sure what kind of business to get into. My credit is excellent, so I could use it and get a loan to start a business. Or should I use it as a down payment for a house? I live in southern California, so I won't be able to buy anything big, maybe just a 2-bedroom apartment. I'd prefer to make a whole lot more money so I can afford a nicer house later....any idea?

  • Hello, I'm seventeen and been accepted to many colleges instate penn state berks, shippensburg, albright college, indiana university of pennsylvania and california state university: northridge. I am from pennsylvania and really wanted to move out to southern california but I figured it wouldn't be worth it when going to northridge. Yet now I just applied to SMC. My question is would going to this college be a bad idea? The price shouldn't be bad because I already found an apartment with this female. Her parents own the place so she only is charging 400 dollars a month for the room. My friend from instate would also be moving with me so we really would only both be paying 200 a month for one room. Also I should get money from my parents for food ect. I am apply for the FAFSA right now and going to get a private loan for any additional fees. I might just transfer out to a private school or CSULB. Is this really a bad idea or would it be doable? Also since the college is impacted right now I was thinking about taking online classes as well so I can finish my general education requirements in two years instead of three.

  • If you don't mind, I'd like to know if I can receive student Aid, if I travel to Georgia from California. Currently a Senior in my High School, Charter Oak, and would like to travel to GA. I have something close to a 3.0 but more than a 2.5 GPA. 17 Years old, going to be 18 in a month, getting my license before 18th birthday. Looking to take up nursing (good money). I would like information for an individual looking for a college financial aid in GA traveling from CA, not aid/colleges in CA. Requirements? Possibilities? Difficulty? Anything said for this topic that's of use would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
  • First of all, may be able to get help through the federal governments by completing a FAFSA application. Need-based financial aid is available to all students no matter if they choose to study in a different state to where they are residents, providing they demonstrate a need for financial assistance. If you have already enrolled or have been accepted at a college in CA then the college will help you complete your FAFSA application and advise you on what federal grants and loans you may be eligible for. If not then you can complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov Also, because you plan to study nursing, there are other opportunities for grants and scholarships that you may get from the government, and even from your college... there may even be financial assistance available through both CA & GA state governments as there is always a demand for nursing. The following website link has some good information about Nursing School Grants, where to find them and how to apply http://www.schoolgrantsresource.org/Nurs...You should also visit this website: http://www.aacn.nche.edu/,
  • im getting ready to get out of the marines after 4 years or active duty. i will be returning to my home state PA im currently in california. anyways i havent been able to find a job applyin online. i want to be a cop but in PA im going to have to certify myself(pay for the police academy) anyways my question is im thinking about collecting unemployment until i get this police job i want, but i dont know if there are consecuences if i collect unemployment. for example will it ruin my credit? do jobs/mortage companies and anybody look at that as a problem. i have exelent credit and i dont want to ruin it since i have worked so hard to get it. please help me out with any info u have
  • Collecting unemployment has nothing to do with a credit history report. I suspect that it would be illegal for the state government to give this out to any agency without the permission of the recipient anyway. You may wish to check out whether or not you are eligible for unemployment benefits if you choose to leave the Marines, in the state of Pennsylvania. Typically, unemployment benefits go to those who have had their jobs eliminated at their company, or have lost jobs due to company bankruptcy. The benefits may also be obtained if the state unemployment agency determines that you have had your employment terminated without just cause (for example, making up something when they just need to shrink their workforce.) For anyone who leaves a job of their own choice, unemployment is typically unavailable.
  • Unemployment does not affect your credit rating as long as you keep your bills current.
  • The only time it would hurt your credit is if you were to stop paying your bills.
  • I've heard good things about them but no school can guarantee jobs after you graduate. These days finding jobs is difficult so don't get sucked into a school that promises jobs after graduation. The key is to find a good accredited school with low tuition rates so when you graduate you don't owe $50K in student loans that you have to pay back. Can I recommend California Southern University. I'm not sure what degee you want but they offer some great programs and are very affordable, especially if you want to do it 100% online. Just make sure National College is accredited if that is where you really want to attend. Research as many schools as possible before making your decision. Hope this helps. Jill
  • Congratulations for making the decision to continue your education, we were very excited to learn you are considering National College. National College is accredited by ACICS and, depending on the campus and program you are interested in, may have additional accreditation/certifications. In an effort to help you gain some additional feedback about the National College experience I would like to invite you to visit the campus you are interested in and engage with the students and staff. Also, try visiting the National College Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/NatlCollege), and interact with students and graduates there. I hope this helps and good luck with your decision. -Chuck
  • My husband recently told me he wants to go back to school for landscape architecture. I initially was not really for it as we both work full-time and have a 1 year old at home, but he mentioned a school in California that has an online program for Landscape Architecture that would take about 3 years to complete given that he has a few college credits that are transferrable. Right now he's a landscape designer/project manager for a company that he really loves, but he feels he can only go so far with that. Together, we're still barely making ends meet. But I want to know if its worth him going through hell in school the next 3 years. What should he expect to make starting out after school in Florida? What could he make in 5-10 years from now? He used to own a Landscape/Paver company and the stress almost killed us so I'm just worried about the stress aspect as well and being in debt from student loans forever. Any suggestions or help from those in the field is greatly appreciated.
  • Doing what he loves and following his dreams is more important than money and if he's happy in his work he will be a better husband and father.
  • I would like to go back to school, but I feel like I can't afford it, so I am looking for some free schooling. Does anyone know of a program I can get into? I know a lot of programs have requirements, so here are my stats: 30 years old Female Caucasian Unmarried/No children Low income Living in Southern California THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!
  • Back to what type of school? If you need a GED you can get that through your local Adult Education facilities. There is usually a small charge. If you are looking at college, there are about a dozen legitimate ones in the US; none in So. Cal. I would look at Community Colleges as some have scholarships available. There are online "colleges" that say they have free tuition; don't believe it. You could also go for a Pell Grant. It is not a loan but a true grant. The first link below will take you to the Pell Grant website.
  • I would really like to learn how to perform tricks with a butterfly knife, however, i live in California where such knives with a blade length exceeding 2 inches is illegal. I have found a website where you can purchase a "build it yourself" balisong trainer where the knife comes disassembled. While the blade is not sharpened, it is however pointed at the end; giving me the impression that the dummy blade could be considered a knife. so my question is, if i bought this disassembled butterfly knife trainer blade online and have it shipped to my home where it would arrive still disassemble would this be considered illegal? Here the product in question: http://www.knifekits.com/vcom/product_info.php?cPath=1_28_72&products_id=9&osCsid=c5962f2ccdb050fbc68d3e5e08576330
  • Actually, you're only partly correct about the law. Penal Code 653k says: "Every person who possesses in the passenger's or driver's area of any motor vehicle in any public place or place open to the public, carries upon his or her person, and every person who sells, offers for sale, exposes for sale, loans, transfers, or gives to any other person a switchblade knife having a blade two or more inches in length is guilty of a misdemeanor. For the purposes of this section, "switchblade knife" means a knife having the appearance of a pocketknife and includes a spring-blade knife, snap-blade knife, gravity knife or any other similar type knife, the blade or blades of which are two or more inches in length and which can be released automatically by a flick of a button, pressure on the handle, flip of the wrist or other mechanical device, or is released by the weight of the blade or by any type of mechanism whatsoever. " Notice where it says "carries upon his or her person"? Its not actually not illegal to possess. If you can get it sent to your house without having to carry it on your person or in a car in public, you are within the law. The legislature has specifically forbade the possession of certain types of weapons as outlined in PC 12020 (e.g. Nunchukas, saps, throwing stars, brass knuckles) but has not done so for switchblades/butterfly knives over 2 inches. So you can actually have a fully assembled one shipped to your house legally. You just can't loan or give it to anyone else. Without question, a disassembled one is perfectly legal to have shipped to you.
  • Yes, they are illegal in Texas, because they are considered switch blade knives. Possession is considered a Class 1 Misdemeanor punishable by up to 1 year in prison.
  • I went to the University of Texas, Dallas for four years studying Political Science with a 3.45 GPA and I cannot get a job anywhere! No one will hire. In every job I apply to online they want 4-10 years of experience. I still owe $42,160 in student loans for my worthless degree! I really hate how our society glorifies a college degree. All that homework, tests, quizzes, sleeplesss nights and tyrant professors - all for what? To end up working at a call center for $10 an hour?! I couldn't even get a job at the bank as a customer service representative aka "greeter."
  • You should have majored, like most liberals, in Underwater Basket Weaving...with a minor in Marxism. You'd already be working and receiving a handsome salary as an intake worker at your local welfare office...;-)
  • The degree is not worthless! You're just applying it in the wrong areas. It's a nice springboard for law school. With your GPA, you should be able to get into one. If you moved up a notch and got your Master's, you could teach at a CC or you could get your teaching credential and teach social science in high school. There are areas in gov't where it would be helpful: foreign service (State Dept); congressional aid. It's no question that 1st job is tough to get, there's a lot of competition out there. Advise: research online, apply in person and follow up, and follow up, and follow up. There are jobs out there. You just have to be a little creative to beat the competition. And, no, neither your major nor your degree are worthless.
  • Did it occur to you that it's not the degree that's the problem but the one who is holding that degree? The problem with your story is that when people seek a degree they usually know in advance what they want to do and then get the degree that will see they reach their goals. Most people who get into a university are not usually stupid people and have already figured this out. When I started university I made myself a road map to reach my goals and it worked. Sometimes you get the people who do not plan out their education and end up with an empty degree wondering what went wrong. They spend years in school but for some reason in those years they never ask themselves why they are doing what they are doing and that is their own fault. Political Science is a fine degree, but what were your plans to do with it? Why did you think it was a good idea to go for such a degree, or maybe you just made this all up.
  • You have discovered the harsh reality of overpopulating excess labor. The post WW II boom where high tech industries began multiplying at the same time the "boomer" generation delayed having children is over. The pinch in labor as new jobs opened elevated wages ever more to unprecedented levels while price increases lagged. As hordes of excess labor in other parts of the world grew ever larger eventually cheap, fast container shipping allowed jobs and whole industries to move where modern ports had dirt cheap labor near them. Now particularly Asia is literally devouring the economies of the world
  • Yes
  • This happens. People that "don't know no better" go to college, get wasted, get 40k plus in debt, and end up making $10 an hour.
  • 3.45? I am not sure what jobs are available in political science. That said, would you see a physician or use an accountant that got a B+ average?
  • Hahahahaha....You said University and Texas together.....you KNOW they Graduated Rick Perry ..right?
  • Yes do Computer science instead.
  • 3.45? The algebra is a killer isn`t it?
  • It is hard to find grants to start a business. Unlike the myths that some perpetuate, federal government and even private foundations hardly give grant money for a for-profit business. And yes, grants mean PAPERWORK - lots and lots of it, that is why a cottage industry of grant writers was born. Nonetheless, you can go to the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) http://www.cfda.gov and Grants.gov http://www.grants.gov - these are two sites created by the federal government to provide transparency and information on grants. Browse through the listings and see if you can find any grant that would support a for-profit venture. Even if you buy books on "how to get grants" or list that supposedly has information on grants -- all of them are mere rehash of what CFDA has, albeit packaged differently. But still the info is the same - hardly any grants for starting a for profit business. Even SBA does NOT give out grants. From the SBA website http://www.sba.gov/expanding/grants.html..."The U.S. Small Business Administration does not offer grants to start or expand small businesses, although it does offer a wide variety of loan programs. (See http://www.sba.gov/financing for more information) While SBA does offer some grant programs, these are generally designed to expand and enhance organizations that provide small business management, technical, or financial assistance. These grants generally support non-profit organizations, intermediary lending institutions, and state and local governments." Here is a listing of federal grants for small businesses. See if there is any available for individuals for starting a business -- THERE'S NONE. http://12.46.245.173/pls/portal30/CATALOG.BROWSE_BENEF_RPT.show Most of the federal grants are given to specific target groups with specific requirements (e.g. minority business owners involved in transportation related contracts emanating from DOT - Grant#20.905 Disadvantaged Business Enterprises Short Term Lending Program Grants are also often given to non profit groups or organizations involved in training or other similar activities (grant 59.043 Women's Business Ownership Assistance that are given to those who will create women's business center that will train women entrepreneurs For private grants, you may want to check the Foundation Center's Foundation Grants for Individuals Online. It's a subscription based website ($9.95 per month) but their opening blurb only says that the database is ideal for "students, artists, academic researchers, libraries and financial aid offices." Entrepreneurs are apparently not one of them, so I take it they also don't have listings of private foundations who give grants to would-be entrepreneurs.
  • I think imisidro has great information about grants -- she's the #1 Answerer in the Business & Finance section. As far as CA specific... * Small Business Start-up Kit for California by Peri Pakroo, Barbara Kate Repa * How to Start a Business in California by Entrepreneur Press Hope that helps! I wish you much success & happiness in all your ventures!
  • Contrary to popular opinion, grants are usually given to non-profits. For-profit businesses are not eligible for grants. Also, what exactly do you mean when you say "small business developers"? Are you a small real estate development company or an investor in small businesses?
  • It's by state Per the Experian website it's $10 for people in Florida. In California it's $10 if under age 65 and $5 for over age 65 Experian will waive the fee for anyone who had a security breech in the past year: http://www.experian.com/consumer/securit...Add'l info: I would not recommend a senior citizen getting a credit freeze. My dad can barely do an online order... I can imagine the stress he would go through to get this credit account unfrozen. - and he is a financial planner, still at age 77.
  • The cost to freeze and unfreeze credit reports is governed by states. It's $10 for most, but some states have a cheaper price. The same probably applies to senior citizen rates.
  • What do you mean by "Freeze"? The three companies can no longer make entries to your file? That makes no sense. You are still alive and using your credit cards or maybe obtaining car loans. Maybe you still have a mortgage balance. You files are updated until you die.
  • interesting I thought it was no free to freeze but you had to pay to "thaw" :) Flow always comes up with cool questions
  • Hello, my name's Chris. I'm 21 and currently from South Bend, Indiana. Its a medium sized Chicago suburb. I'm posting this in hopes that there is someone like me, facing the problems I am currently facing. I work part time as a line cook at a local bar. I'm still living at home. I feel trapped. Trapped in this system. Trapped in relationships. Trapped in my head.. and Trapped in this depressing place. Simply put, I want to get away. I'm not trying to find myself.. I'm pretty certain of who I am.. I just want to see more of the country than the 100 mile radius I'm used to. I own my car. Its a dependable 2004 Grand Am GT. Unfortunately, other than a couple of electronics, I don't own much else. I'm looking for any advice on relocating with a couple hundred dollars. School is an option. I'd love to learn more about things that intrest me, and I'm sure I'd get accepted for student loans regardless of where I end up. (I'd like somewhere west.. Oregon, California.. but east would be fine too.) If anyone has ever felt trapped.. and has any advice as far as how to attack this.. please let me know. I have nothing to tie me down here other than some family who I would remain in contact with. I appreciate any advice and help.. Chris
  • At risk of sounding annoying, and not giving the answer you may have wanted... Perhaps look for a job doing something you're good at either online or by calling companies up yourself, or even going there for a weekend and having a look about. Once you can get another job lined up it's a simple case of scrounging as much of that few hundred dollars as you can for a deposit on a small house/houseshare and the first months rent. From there you just throw your few possessions in the boot of your car and move along to your new life. It all comes down to getting your name out there, getting yourself known, and getting that nice job that you enjoy. There's gotta be one out there somewhere after all. Good luck with escaping, and I hope I've helped in some way.

  • It's beautiful obvious that your husband isn't going to go away so you can ought to be the only to stroll away. I left a courting in which my identify was once additionally at the hire and I contacted the owner (in writing) to inform them that as of a precise date I might not be residing there and might now not be dependable. You did not point out youngsters however when you consider that he is a keep-at-dwelling dad I'm guessing that you just 2 have youngsters. Or no less than one little one. The childs protection and wellbeing and fitness ought to come first. Create a precise plan to comprise: a million) in which you can reside two) how a lot $$ you ought to retailer three) whilst you can go away four) protection matters and answers (you recounted violence) Do you've got a loved ones member or near pal you'll be able to stick with till you get your plan in combination? Are you involved for the protection of you and your little one? If so that you would wish to dossier a restraining order. In the top you simply ought to be robust and do the correct factor for you and your little one(ren). It would now not be convenient however staying within the fallacious (and maybe unsafe) courting isn't any less complicated. Best of good fortune...
  • Hi Chris, Your dilemma is same as millions of people from different countries (including me). We're all tired of the same sh*t over and over again. We're tired of paying bills and working just to pay the bills again. Tired of working 9-5 or having a fix schedule. I'm not sure if putting yourself in a huge debt would help. I'm also in the same situation and what I did was I left my corporate job and traveled for 6 months. I was planning to travel longer but I was prompted to go home due to some family concerns. Now, I realized I could do so much more. I'm currently self studying about location independent kind of jobs, so I could work anywhere I want. Here are some websites that I'm currently reading right now: 1. http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2006/07/10-reasons-you-should-never-get-a-job/ 2. http://almostfearless.com/2008/05/21/8-things-i-wish-i-knew-when-i-was-22/ Here's my personal journey flipnomad.com wish you all the best... and my you find what you're looking for... -flip
  • I am depressed about being single. I am extremely happy in being a relationship. I am tring to found that one special lady. But its hard. I think I am doing everything in my power. But, I am 23 yrs old, male, I live in Agoura Hills, California. I work for Countrywide Home Loans. I have a 2004 Nissan Altima. I have: Short Black hair, Hazel eyes, 6 ft tall, 190 pounds, muscular. If there any ladies out there that want to talk, please contact me. My email address is: pencil1212@yahoo.com
  • I am a dude, a brother, so lets get one thing squared right away. I am in my 30s and quite happy with where I am relationshipwise (wife, kid). I am no expert in this field but I think it may be more about you and only you and not even about a relationship. You seem to have things going for you and you got a nice ride too. It is not OK to be depressed and the question becomes why are you? There are 19 yr old brave men and women coming back from Iraq with no limbs there is a reason to be depressed. So my advice, not that you asked, is address any issues you may have with urself coz whatever relationship you get into, you won't be able to give 100% if u are not right with urself. Seek professional help maybe, try to date and do not get married before U are 30. Find some hobbies, work out, rollerblade, swim, ride motorcycles, travel, (if you have 2-4 friends - get on a plane go to London for 5 days - it's not as expensive as u may think) take creativity classes like drawing or something and if nothing works join a charity. You will find a lot of satisfaction in doing something for others in more dire need. I participate in a breast cancer charity. I do all those things above and I don't even make good money at all... Wishing you luck and I hope you find friends and relationships that will be good for you. Cheers. Also, stop aggressively looking and trust me you will bump into a lady of your dreams at an airport or the gas station, try online dating but be careful.. there are 300 lbs ladies claiming they look like Ana Kournikova . Be open to females of all races.
  • its never good for someone to be depressed.Don't worry you jsut haven't met that somone special yet. She will turn up eventually. Good Luck
  • I am 23 years old, I have never attended college, and I have worked for a grocery store for the last six years and have only worked my way up to supervisor which isn't very good and I most certainly don't want to work here for the rest of my life. My only problem is I can't decide what I want to do, I don't want to go to school and end up paying thousands of dollars for a career i wasn't so sure about, I feel like I can't decide on what career I want, I've looked at a lot of options and there is nothing that shouts "I think you would enjoy doing this everyday and love your job, pay thousands to get into this career." I originally was going to get into aircraft out of HS as my dad was getting people jobs left and right and than he himself got laid off after hundreds at his plant... Early in HS I had plans too, I had played basketball since I was in 8th grade and I had hopes that if I worked my *** off I would get some kind of small scholarship to even the tiniest college and I wasn't even good enough to play for my HS after 3 years. I have also been rapping for 6 years have somewhat of a talent but I also know that a career in something like that is unrealistic. I do have one thing that seriously intrusts me and that is oaksterdam (don't judge me on this, look at Colorado's success as a business) in California but their is no loans given to students for it and it's expensive to just pay at once and spend a year in California...
  • It's difficult to decide what to do with your career. You see your current job as a dead end and college as a road to bigger and better things. But you want to be guaranteed a job upon graduation. I'm sorry to disappoint but there are no guarantees. The reality is even if you spend $100k on tuition, you might still not get a job. You do your research and make an educated guess. I applaud you about being realistic about getting a scholarship in basketball or have a rapping career. The cliche about pursuing your dreams is conditional. If you're serious about college, you could attend the first two years at a community college which costs almost nothing. Most have evening classes, online classes, and some even have weekend classes. Then you can "transfer" to a public university which costs a fraction of the private university. Since you're already a supervisor, is there upward mobility in your current job working for the corporate office after you graduate with a bachelor's? I think if your current job is pretty stable and the pay is good, it won't be bad if you decide to not to pursue college. After all, the purpose of a job is to make money. Look around. Are there only young employees? Is there a large turnover? If so, I'd be worried. I'm sorry I can't provide you with a definitive answer. All I can say is I admire your realistic outlook and being proactive while you're still young. Good luck.
  • I am curious about a service I saw advertised a while back that agreed to provide a puppy potty training box so long as you agreed to use their service for the replacement grass monthly. I live in the San Fernando Valley in California and was wondering if anyone has used this service and has this company's contact information. Or if anyone in my area has one of these boxes that they would consider loaning out or selling. I have looked at two different brands online and they are quite expensive and not something I really want to invest in as it will only be used for the potty training period (fingers crossed, won't be too long). I live in a condo and on the first floor and have a patio that is large enough to house one of these potty boxes. If anyone has any information, please let me know. Thanks!
  • Thanks Kristen, for your input. I am not going to only use this potty box idea for training, of course I plan on walking the puppy a lot outside (on sidewalks mainly until puppy has all her shots) but I wanted to have something near by to whisk the puppy to when I catch her in the act of defecating or urinating on the carpet... I'm sure it will happen despite my most vigilant efforts. Anyway, I did consider shavings but thought maybe grass would be more natural to the dog. I took in a dobe puppy years ago who had been trained to go to the bathroom on shavings and transitioning him to grass was no problem. So we'll see, but thanks for your input :)
  • I don't think a grassy potty box is going to be a good approach to potty training. It will tend to confuse your dog about where it is and is not appropriate to toilet. If you want him to toilet outside, get in the habit from the start of taking him outside (a lot) to go. If you want him to toilet indoors but don't want to commit to a grass system, train him to use a regular litter box (but fill it with wood chips, paper shreds, or feline pine, not with clay cat litter). My point is: you should start with, and stick with, the toileting procedure you want to use for the life of the dog instead of changing the rules on him as soon as he's learned one way of doing things. I think crate training is the fastest, most effective, most humane method for toilet training. Here are some articles a friend and I wrote about crate training on another site: http://servicedogcentral.org/content/nod...http://servicedogcentral.org/content/nod...
  • Hello, I am a high-school senior, and I would really appreciate some help finding scholarships. I have a 2.9 GPA (3.8 current) (see, I started highschool with ZERO English so.. yea :/ ) 27 ACT (8 in the writing section) 80.75 Community Serv. hours (and counting) at the moment I do not have any extracurricular activities, but I have had many including (Debate, Student Council, Chess, Cycling) I tutor (actually have my own class) in my community church's dotrine class I tutored in a Spanish class up until last year. I'm fluent in Spanish, I have 2 years of Russian. Here's the thing,I am undocumented. (Mexican) No jobs, no loans, no FAFSA... Do you know of any scholarships for me? Regards
  • To add to the good information provided in the answer from Nancy, who knows her "stuff" . . . Be sure to speak with a high school counselor about your situation and your higher education dreams. He/she can give you good advise and instruction on what may be possible. Some US colleges and universities have scholarships (merit/grade-based or for special skills) scholarships for just their own students. However, generally colleges/universities supported by public/government funds (community colleges, state universities) will require U.S. citizenship or legal residency for a student to be eligible even for scholarships. Sigh . . . Starting in 2013, in California, the Dream Act will go into effect. If you happen to live in Calif, this is a link to a Wall Street Journal (newspaper) article about it: * http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424...This is a link to an article on the Calif. Dream Act from the well-respected publication US News and World Report: * http://www.usnews.com/education/best-col...If you are interested in some private/independent colleges/universities (not to be confused with for-profit/career/proprietary colleges, which have the main focus of earning profits for their share holders) some of them may have scholarships that do not require U.S. citizenship or legal residency or may have scholarships for what are called "international students," students who are not U.S. citizens or legal residents of the USA. You will need to identify the schools that interest you and then hold a conversation (by phone or in-person) with a financial aid counselor at each school regarding scholarships and other financial aid for an undocumented student or an international student. Ask a high school counselor to explain what I mean by private/independent colleges/universities, if the concept is not clear to you. Some examples of private/independent colleges universities: Harvard College, Stanford Univ., Vanderbilt Univ., Alverno College (undergraduates: women only, Milwaukee, WI), Dominican Univ., Washington Univ. (St. Louis, MO), and many, many more. Some are affiliated with religious groups; some are not. You can use the excellent College MatchMaker database of the well-respected College Board to help narrow down choices of schools (free - no registration required to use the database). This is the link: * http://collegesearch.collegeboard.com/se...Click on the Start Here link to begin the process and follow the on-screen instructions. You can narrow down schools to just one state or a region of the county and many more limitations. You can even indicate you only want a list of schools that offer financial aid to international students (the category in which an undocumented student is placed.) You will find more information here: http://www.getreadyforcollege.org/gpg.cfm?pageid=1586 It is from the Minnesota Office of Higher Education and just lists schools in Minnesota, by the way. This is the link to the web site mentioned by Nancy - DreamActivist - it is the link to web page on scholarships: http://www.dreamactivist.org/faq/education/scholarships/ This link is to a Word document written for high school and college advisers regarding undocumented students: http://www.wacac.org/Resources/Documents/High%20School%20Counselor%20Toolkit/4.%20College%20Application%20Process/Resources%20for%20Undocumented%20Students.doc You may find some of the resources listed at the end of the document useful. I also refer you to this article from U.S. News and World Report, 24 March 2011 (a well-respected U.S. magazine) Scholarship Sources for International Students http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/the-scholarship-coach/2011/03/24/scholarship-sources-for-international-students Whew! That's a lot, I know, but I think you will find some worthwhile info on all the web sites. Librarians--Ask Us, We Answer!

  • An excellent place to start is DreamActivist.org, a website of resources for undocumented students, and FinAid.org, a site that will give you several leads you can follow up. Being undocumented does make it more difficult because the majority of scholarships are for U.S. citizens and resident aliens. However, contrary to what the rather negative fellow above said, there ARE some out there for you. I would look first at organizations that are for local students (check out your school guidance office for a list, and watch for announcements in local newspapers). Then I would contact organizations that support Hispanic students, migrant workers, etc. because they might be more understanding of the difficult position undocumented students find themselves in. Sign up for some search engines like FastWeb and check out the big scholarship guides at a bookstore or at your library. You might also try places where you have been a volunteer, such as your church, and talking to your prospective colleges. When you have located some organizations that might be sympathetic to your plight, you want to emphasize to them that you don't have much choice about your status, and that you have done everything you can to be a good student and a good future citizen. So.....if you're not volunteering now, start doing it again because it will be hard to sell them on that idea if you're not doing anything that shows that.
  • AAHHhhhh it extremely is sooo not elementary to respond to. Islamicaly i understand we ought to continuously not pass that a ways on my own...yet...i understand I did this until eventually now I became Muslim and actual when I did too....It grow to be the proper ingredient for me and the worst ingredient. do not go with to chat proper to the worst areas....however the proper....I have been given to appreciate quite some Muslims (I have been examining Islam earlier) and it grow to be the proper ingredient ever....lead me closer to ultimately embracing Islam. i think of examining aboard is so great in maximum of approaches. You study lots not extraordinarily much the project that pastimes you yet approximately your self and proper to the international. heavily, I do see a distinction in lots of circumstances circumstances between individuals that have accomplished it and human beings who have not (of their mentalities).

  • I am 2 years into a 5-year car loan and no longer upside down on its value. The Kelly Blue Book says its trade in value is $13,625, and I owe 11,509. I would like to use the 2 thousand in equity towards a new car. The two dealers I have gone to have said that they no longer go by what KBB says it is worth. They are firmly offering me just 11,500 for amy trade in. Am I missing something? The car is in pristine condition; no stains, scratches, very shinny paint. Very cute Manual transmission Mazda 3. I am only trading in because our family is growing. Another thing, can someone explain how a trade in can affect the taxes you have to pay in California. They are using some mumbo jumbo to confuse me.
  • Hi Karla, Kelly Blue Book is a retail online buyers guide, I know of no dealer that has or ever had a "Kelly Blue Book". They do use, one or combination of other books/sources. The most common being yellow NADA guide for dealers, Nada also makes a whole sale 'bluebook' Some dealers go according to current local/regional auction pricing. Unfortunately Kelly Blue Book does not cut checks or buy cars, If they did I would sell a whole lot more cars. As an information source it is great but remember they get their info from various nationwide sources. And the number is an average of trade allowance. Trade allowance, if you dont know, is the actual value of your trade plus any applicable discounts. You ever notice how trade prices sometimes vary depending on actual vehicle at same dealership. With that being said, your trade allowance will vary. Two dealers said 11,500. Are they comparing same car, meaning against same model. The actual value could be 11,000 with 500 added discount. And national average is higher because some vehicles have more room for discount. Say 11,000 with 4000 discount. Look up trade allowance on kbb or use other resources. edmunds.com or nadagudelines.com, but remeber only use as a guideline. The dealer needs to fix anything that might be wrong, even if you dont see it, they have to preventive mainteance, or replace half worn but still good for you tires or brakes, warranty the vehicle for next buyer and most important of all. Make a profit. Trade and taxes. Since you already paid tax on your current vehicle when you bought it. The trade price is deducted from the selling price. That subtotal is taxed. (im in NY) selling price-trade allowance=taxable subtotal+sales tax+applicable fees+your payoff-down payment=Amount to finace. Good Luck, email me if i can be of more help -Chris
  • Ok, here we go... for starters, I understand you wanting a different vehicle based on the fact that a rear seat in a Tiburon sucks when there is a car seat in it.. you have to be quite a contortionist and have major upper body strenght to put a kid in and pull them out of a rear ward facing car seat(if one will even fit in the back seat, otherwise, sounds like you will be having lots of fun getting in and out of the back. Next, as far as the dealership, they should disclose to you any major damage, as long as it exceeds by a certain percentage the total value of the car. So, for example, if a car is worth 15k, and the benchmark is 50%, they would have to disclose any accident exceeding $7500 in repairs. This is assuming they knew of the accident, which some do, and some dont. I am guessing that Carmax has pulled a carfax, because they are quoting a specific month and year for the damage, which is how a carfax usually reports. See if you can post on here to see if someone will pull a carfax for you on their account. Some people here have unlimited accounts, and as a nice gesture, in a case like yours will pull it for you. My advice is to go to some different dealers, and see what kind of deal you can make. Most dealers do not pull a carfax, and unlike them, you are not required to disclose damage you know about to them. It is not the most moral and ethical thing to do, but it is a solution to YOUR problem. However, you seem to owe an awful lot of money on this tiburon. Did you get any additional items (warranty, credit life, etc? If so, you can cancel for a refund of any unused portions). You might have a situation where you are in a negative equity situation. You will find out soon enough. Good luck with everything.
  • a) the usual rule is that a car loses 30% as soon as used and 25% every year after. b) the $2000 is the profit a commercial trader needs to amke to pay for making a car saleable and advertising it, etc. The "book" price is an estimate on what two people trading non-commercially would pay/accept between themselves. I don't know Californian taxes but the usual rule in sales tax is that you pay on the gross value because the trade in is how you are paying (eg instead of cash). In Europe however VAT is paid on the net transfer value.
  • Yes you are missing something. Car Salesmen are shysters. Their job is to pay as little as possible and get as much money as possible. One of the many ways they do this is drastically underpaying the fair values of trade ins. Keep checking out other dealers, but this is very common and may keep occuring. Otherwise, you will need to sell the car yourself. You will get a better price for it, but it'll be a bit of a hassle. Only you can decide whether or not you would rather go through the hassle of selling your car to a private party to get a fair price, or save yourself the hassle by selling it to a dealer for an unfair price. I know nothing about the taxes however. Hopefully other answerers will.
  • One thing to realize is that kbb is a free service for customers, they get paid by traffic to their site. KBB is not a good guide for trade-in values. Most dealers (in the northeast anyway) use galves. Galves is the wholesale guide of choice, and it must be purchased. They use real life, real time, auction prices for a specific geographic. Galves is always lower than KBB. Most cars are about 2k less than KBB, so sounds like you are getting a fair trade value.
  • Depends on if you're being quoted Wholesale bluebook, or retail. They're only going to give you wholesale, are you looking at retail bluebook for your own value? You won't get that, dealers have to make a profit, so they quote what they're willing to give you. Nothing prevents you from going out and getting 13k, except the hassle. So as long as you're willing to go thru the hoops of selling it yourself, you "might" get the 13k...or you might not. Up to you. They're not going to give you top dollar, and then can't sell it for over that. That's why there's Wholesale and Retail bluebook prices. Now do you understand? - The Gremlin Guy -
  • They're car dealers... Isn't that enough of an explanation? I would rather share an airplane with a group of Al Qaeda alumni that missed the first trip. They're car dealers! Is there any other lower form of life?
  • Some places go by a dealer book usually call a black book or they will have a specific name for it like Jergens for instance. This book they go by what they actually sell it for and profit they can make and also what they usually go for at their auto auction incase they can't sell it
  • they want the $2000 and mumbo jumbo is the way the game is played
  • I agree- they want your $$. Try to sell it yourself, and get more than $2,000 for a down payment.
  • The best thing you can do for yourself is to fill out the FAFSA, the free application for federal student aid. Colleges will use this information to match you up with their own institution-specific grants/scholarships--outside of what you may be awarded on the government level. You should apply to more than one college. I'm attaching a list below of schools known to be great for low-income students. They have great financial aid packages that include no loans, free tuition, or full rides--which means you would graduate debt-free. Anyway. I'm also attaching an article below as to how to apply for colleges for free. Sometimes they charge even for an online application but these tips should help you out! Good luck.
  • ok i have a friend that does not have papers and was not born here in the US, he lives in California, and he just got an application to fill out (for the army)its called Selective Service, and it says that if he does not sign and fill out, he will be charged $250,000 or be imprisoned for 5 years,(he never requested an application whatsoever) i mean he has never done any felonies or anything, he only has tickets for not stopping at a stop sign and his car got impounded twice for not having a license (he cant get a license because he is not a US citizen) i mean im a US citizen and ive never gotten that letter, please help me, if you need more details and/or if you have a question please tell me and i will update and add details, and check back in 5 minutes
  • It's not an application, it's a registration card. Almost every male in the US between the ages of 18 and 25 is required to register. In the event that Congress were ever to introduce a draft, the Selective Service Registration database would be what's used to pick people for it. If you are a male between 18 and 25 and you have NOT registered for Selective Service, you should go to the link below and register online. If you don;t, as well as the direct penalties for not registering, you are ineligible for student loans or grants, most types of government jobs, and several other things. Richard
  • Brandman is a part of the Chapman University System. They've been around more than 50-years and have a strong record of graduating students, very low student loan default rates (2.3% compared to the national average of 8.8%), are regionally accredited by WASC, their online MBA program was the only one in California named to US News and World Report's Honor Roll and online graduate education faculty was ranked #10 in the nation for teacher credentials and training. Plus, they are a non-profit. So, yes, I would say it is a very good school.
  • I have a niece in the Sacramento area of California and one day on her way to work she was side swiped by a big rig when he had pulled over on top of her. Her car was totaled and she survived with minimal injury. However the car was given its worth and not completely paid off leaving $3000. debt. This family has had a very rough go with job loss, lack of health insurance, and mounting bills, and a small child. They were a one car family and now have none. They have been loaned a car but need to return it in 2 weeks. They have no where to turn because of the excessive bills and other issues. They both work but travel a distance she works in Stockton and he works in Sacramento and the live between the two. All the online car charities are backe up with applications for a car and not accepting anymore until 2009. Is there some one out there that can help??

  • I've been researching online, and I can't find what I need from a reputable source ( Wikipedia isn't one ). I'm wondering how the Sino-U.S. Maritime trade in the early 1800s begun Chinese immigration to the U.S. ( and how quickly U.S. cities began to fill with new Chinese-American citizens ). Thank you!
  • During the presidency of John Tyler (1841-1845), America made its first diplomatic relations with China. In 1842, China was forced by Great Britain to open certain seaports to foreign trading. Tyler's Whig administration and Congress were pressured by powerful American mercantile interets to send an envoy, CALEB CUSHING, to China, who negotiated the Treaty of Wang Hya (1844), which gave the Americans the same special privileges of the English. The treaty also included the extraterritoriality clause, which essentially excluded Americans from having to follow any Chinese laws. In the next ten years, trade with China steadily increased. In 1849, reports of the California gold rush sent by Chinese already in CA created great excitement in rural, impovershed areas of China. Emigration brokers loaned money for the passage to CA to young, adventurous Chinese (men, mostly), which they believed could quickly be repaid by the gold rush. Conflicts over gold, however, and the extensive ethnic diversity of CA territory made racism and violence widespread. By 1880, more than 200,000 Chinese had settled in America, mostly in CA, where they settled as free laborers. White opinion of Chinese people became hostile quickly, and Chinese immigrants struggled to advance economically in the face of racism and discrimination. Anti-Coolie clubs attacked Chinese workers in the streets and set fires to factories where many Chinese worked. In 1852, the state legislature of CA enacted a "foreign miners" tax, the first of attempts to exclude the Chinese from the gold rush. Starting 1865, the TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILROAD attracted Chinese laborers. They were sought by companies like the Central Pacific (where 90% of the laborers were Chinese) because they did not want to form unions, worked hard, and worked for relatively little pay. When completed in 1869, thousands of Chinese were out of work. Some became farmers, tenant laborers, or migrant workers. Others created "Chinatowns," the largest community being in San Francisco. By 1900, almost half the Chinese population of CA lived in cities. In Chinatowns, powerful organizations of people from the same clan in China functioned like the political machines in the East, e.g., they were employment brokers, defenders of the community, organizers of festivals, arbitrators of disputes. Other societies called "tongs" (essentially gangs) were secret and dangerous. Life was hard for the Chinese. By 1880, nearly half of all Chinese women in CA were prostitutes. In 1882, Congress responded to political pressure and public sentiment and passed the Chinese Exclusion Act. It banned all Chinese immigration for 10 years and prevented naturalization of Chinese already living in the U.S. Congress renewed the law in 1892 and made it permanent in 1902. The Chinese population declined by over 40% in the 40 years after the Chinese Exclusion Act became law. Congress set up a system of quotas which let around 105 people immigrate per year to the U.S. after WORLD WAR II. Many Chinese women immigrated through war bride or fiancĂ©e provisions. Permanent Chinese American residents were allowed to become citizens. In 1972, President Nixon made a formal visit to China, which meant America recognized the communist government which replaced Chiang Kai-shek's regime. The nations began low-level diplomatic relations.
  • i was wondering last saturday i went to the car dealership and bought a brand new 2008 car and i signed the contract and they said that a bank in california had financed me but today exactly 1 week later i get a call from the dealership stating that i have to bring back the car to the lot because they were unable to get me finaced but when i was at the lot on last saturday they said that i did get financed and that when we signed the contract that sealed the deal but now their telling me something else what should i do about this i would understand if it happened the next day after i had bought it but a week later that just isnt right why tell me that i was financed when i wasnt and then why let me drive off the car lot so i need to no what can i do about this and what should i do
  • Wow... I got a headache reading that. When you "signed papers", did you sign an actual finance agreement showing the lender, payments, and legalities (you would have a copy), or a "buyer's order". If you signed a "buyer's order", then you really didn't sign a binding contract for financing and the dealer was probably out shopping lenders for the loan while you were out in the new car. I would take the car back and walk away from the dealer. They are probably going to try to get you into another vehicle. Go back to your bank, credit union, or try an online lender. Get pre-approved first, then go back and go shopping.
  • Punctuate! Capitalize! Breathe! Here is what happens in dealer financing. I am copying this from a previous answer, so it may not spea directly to YOUR situation, but the basics are the same. As a dealer, we review your credit, the car purchase, job history and all the factors of the purchase. Based on that information and our experience with banks, we make an educated guess as to what financing terms we can get approved. 95% of the time, banks will accept the contract on the terms we have written, and everyone is happy. However, sometimes we cannot get bank approval. Especially now, with banks tightening their credit requirements. Last month, my dealership sold 229 cars. We had to re-write 11. What has been going on for the past week is this. Your finance officer has sent your contract to several banks, looking for approval. The finance manager has been making calls and working the lenders to try to get the deal bought. At the end of it all, this is the best approval that they were able to get. So, they have to either get you to agree to the terms the banks DID approve, or get the car back. If you read the back of your agreement, there will be a paragraph stating that the dealership is going to attempt to arrange financing on your behalf. The contract is contingent upon acceptance by a lender. It is not a finance agreement until a bank accepts it. Dealers are simply liasons between buyers and lenders. Yes, we make a little bit of profit on financing as well. However, Just as you do not "own" the car until a bank approves it; we have not "sold" the car until a bank approves it either.
  • contact an attorney ~ don't leave this to fools like me
  • im getting ready to get out of the marines after 4 years or active duty. i will be returning to my home state PA im currently in california. anyways i havent been able to find a job applyin online. i want to be a cop but in PA im going to have to certify myself(pay for the police academy) anyways my question is im thinking about collecting unemployment until i get this police job i want, but i dont know if there are consecuences if i collect unemployment. for example will it ruin my credit? do jobs/mortage companies and anybody look at that as a problem. i have exelent credit and i dont want to ruin it since i have worked so hard to get it. please help me out with any info u have
  • hey lisa first of all i said in my question that my state of residence is PA. see when u join the military and ur station at any other state u dont loose ur state residency. so like i said in my question im a resident of Pa. and yes the military does pay for unemployment for people like me that opt to get out after faithfully finishing 4 years of voluntary commitment. dont mean to be rude but if you dont know please dont say stupid opinions.
  • All of that is kept private, it doesnt get reported or have anything to do with your credit. unemployment is to help people who need it and cant find a job-not to punish you by reporting it on your credit. And when you file for unemployment they send you a debit card the money get deposited directly onto the card OR if you are really private into your bank account. Also if you file for unemployment-ask the work center if they will help pay for training(schooling or for the academy-they really do try to help people who are trying to help themselves. You have nothing to lose! Good Luck with finding a job as a cop ; )
  • Unemployment isn't credit. So it doesn't go on your credit report. The only thing that can hurt your credit report is not paying your bills. I don't understand how you can collect unemployment though, especially in PA. In order to get unemployment, your employer has to pay into the state unemployment insurance fund for you. Does the military pay into unemployment? And you cant just decide what state to collect in. It has to be the state that you worked in. And you can't collect unemployment if you were VOLUNTARILY terminated. Like if you just decided not to reenlist. That was your decision, and you don't get unemployment for that. Unemployment is for when you are involuntarily out of work.
  • yes they do look at that info, but it doesnt (shouldnt) affect your ability to recieve any kind of credit. be it auto, home, etc. they look at that stuff as part of your job history and the length of time you collect the "easy check" will affect their opinion of said history. considering your circumstances, you should be fine. i dont know the employment climate is in your area, but if it is similar to what im familiar with, there should be the lowly gas jockey and supermarket jobs that could pass the time more productively. (just dont let the manager know about your plans to seek better employment later! tell them you just want something more stress free than your previous "job".) P.S. thank you for your 4 years of service. regardless of what your duty was. it means a lot to some of us at home. some people take it for granted and its a shame. congrats on soon returning home and feel thankful you dont have to live in and out of the V.A. like some of our brothers. semper fi!
  • I really dont think unemployment would ruin your credit nor do I believe it affects your credit in any way. I am interested in how others might answer this question though because I dont know for sure.
  • unlawful immigration places good human beings in chance, crossing the border and the unscrupulous. for instance; One proud demanding operating Mexican tells of creating $50,000, very last year operating 60 plus hours a week on a structure job. one wonders how secure it develop into. yet another case; a immigrant kin had a relative arrive from Mexico, did not understand or talk English, fell to his demise the first day on the job at a structure website EIGHTEEN YEARS previous. Can actually ask your self what percentage have suffered on the hand of the unscrupulous.
  • hello - it will not in any way affect your credit. i have never heard of employers asking that in the past, but perhaps they do, and then you can be honest and say that yes, when you left the military (thanks for the service BTW) you did as you were unable to find work in PA. however, if they do a credit check on you they will not see it. good luck -
  • ~~It will not hurt anything on your credit. Unemployment is drawn from a fund you paid into, and is meant to be used while you are unemployed. As long as you stay current on your bills, then unemployment will not affect future jobs, credit, mortgages, etc.~~
  • Awhile back ago, I was contacted by MRS Associates regarding a debt. They ridiculed me, swore at me, and threatened to put the debt on my parents or my boyfriends credit report and make them responsible for the debt. I knew they really couldnt do it so I hung up and sent an email for them not to contact me. Ok, a few months later, I get another call from them. They accussed me of lying and having money but refusing to pay. I told them never to contact me again and sent them a certified letter (with a return receipt) via USPS to stop contacting me. They have received the letter (the USPS return receipt confirms it) yet they still keep calling me! They dont leave messages and they call from different numbers. I know its them because I entered the different numbers online and the numbers all lead back to them. I am a California resident. I already wrote the Attorney General about them. What do I do now? I feel like changing my number..but should I let them keep calling so if I sue them the penalty against them will be higher? "http://www.budhibbs.com/collectorpage... The debt they are refering to is about 2 years old. They claim they have sent me letters in the mail regarding the debt. No they have not. I provided the link above to show you that they are notorious for harassment and using illegal tactics.
  • Hi, You have the USPS receipt now do you have phone records that show they called you after that? If you don't have then handy call phone company and get that information showing all the calls. After that letter received you can get up to 1k per call for damages. Is this debt a credit card if it is CA has a 2 year sol on that. MRS has been sued plenty of times for behavior like this, you should have a attorney represent you during this process. Google FDPCA attorneys and find ones that practices in CA. Guess what MRS is on that list as they are being sued by a consumer. http://mnd.uscourts.gov/ncs/caselist.htm...Haugen v. MRS associates. I am sure there are more in other states, but I do see them frequently on MN here is a link for you to look up! This is the cases filed in federal court in MN
  • Mrs Associates
  • If your credit problems have progressed to the point where your creditors have turned your case over to collection agencies, it is important to know your legal rights. Collection agencies are not allowed to do the following: •call your office, •call your home before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m., •address you in an abusive manner, or •call family or friends in an attempt to collect your debt. Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), debt collectors cannot harass you. If any of the above is happening to you, tell the collection agency to stop harassing you. If it continues, ask for its name and address and report it to the Better Business Bureau, the Federal Trade Commission or your state's attorney general's office. These numbers can be found in your telephone book or by calling directory assistance. You need to refer to this website for tons of free information and advice regarding credit issues: http://www.creditinfocenter.com/rebuild/collectionagencies.shtml good luck!
  • For the best answers, search on this site https://shorturl.im/axizSit is not harassment as defined by UK law there is not a lot you can do about it. obviously you have not made any arrangements to pay at least something each week or month. offer them say ÂŁ5 a month and if they refuse this offer then continue to pester you WITH PHONE CALLS THEN IT IS HARRASSMENT CONTACT THE POLICE THEY ARE BOUND BY LAW TO INVESTIGATE
  • Since they do not leave a call back number, just go out a buy a whistle for $5. The next time they call, just say hold on and then blow the whistle and hang up.
  • answer your phone with, allo?,if its them, when they ask to speak to u, say no abla(habla) inglesh(English) then hang up.I gave you a sight befor for info, that letter hasnt stopped them?.have you threatened them on the phone???? try that!there is a number you can call to report them, it should be listed in the front of your phone book.try that. OR tell them that you just filed bankruptcy,so they might as well forget it!
  • Now that Obama is thinking about bailing out small business's do you think you will increase your work force or just stay the same wondering what the future will bring? It will be just like the banks when they got their bail out money and they didn't lend to anyone with something on their credit which was useless to the economy! Unless the people have jobs there will be no upturn in the economy and things will continue to spiral down! Business in this country is after all ruining our economy when we can't compete with the Chinese labor cost when the American worker is facing high electric, gas, health, food, rent or home payments and our company's go somewhere else for cheaper labor! Also what kind of jobs will be out there? Service sector jobs or manufacturing jobs? What I'm getting at is will the small business bail out really help out or just put a band-aid on a gaping wound?
  • I haven't seen a program that directly helps small business - so far only 1% of the Simulus Two money even relates to small business, which employs 70% of all American workers. Small and home business is a dangerous factor to bureaucrats who like to control and regulate, Back in the Clinton days, there was a White Paper put out by Al Gore's staff to try to control at the national level Internet content and actually tax online activities. California has hard five years of this approach and is now broker than broke. Two of my friends set up "US franchises" in China - they got tax exemptions, zoning exemptions, and the full cooperation of locals. Try that in NYC.. It is no wonder China surpassed the USA in car sales & new millionaires. They also have $763 billion of our debt in loans - so they aren't going to be nice to us.
  • I get a lot of questions on ways to make some extra income. A few months ago I started using YouData. Since it is a fairly new company, you can't make a ton of money with it, but it does generate some extra money for me each week. Here's how it works: You use their program to view ads, and you get paid for each ad that you view. Instead of google and other ad companies making the money, you are making it! Sometimes it's .25 cents for viewing an ad, and sometimes it's .10 cents. It takes me just a few seconds to view all of the ads they have for me each week and I make $3-$6. That's not a lot, but over the course of the year that can really add up. The nice thing is that they pay you through paypal every Friday. The first week I signed up, I started viewing ads on a Friday. I spent about twenty seconds viewing all the ads, and because it was Friday I had over $4 in my papal account within a few hours of first doing it. You can bet I was pretty excited about it! Quick Tip: Sign up for a free paypal account and do NOT upgrade it. This way you will not be charged any fees from Paypal, because the money YouData sends you is funded. YouData does take out a few cents if you select to be paid with Paypal. Not only can you make money by viewing the ads, but you can also make money for referring friends. You get $1 for each person that you refer, and for each of the first 100 times one of your referrals is paid for their attention, you receive a $0.01 referral bonus. That can really add up over time. Payday is almost here, so go ahead and sign up with YouData , view some ads and enjoy the extra money that comes your way. When I first signed up it took a few days for ads to finally come in, so just be patient if you don't have any paid ads right away Referal:::: http://www.youdata. com/join/ myshynina http://www.youdata. com/join/ myshynina http://www.youdata. com/join/ myshynina
  • yeah I'm a female and turning 22 this Sunday- I don't have a job. but i got to college. Relying on Financial Aid. What are some options for me to get a Income- I can't find a job. Been trying for a long long time lol Someone told me to apply for general assistance but i heard i would have to pay that back. I can't afford to pay anything back right now. I live in California where its kinda hard at the moment to look for employment. Can't get any college loans wouldn't be able to pay that back. Do you guys know where I would be able to get some assistance- and please I am not a hooker or looking to be one lol I already had some friends tell me to strip....thanks
  • wow, isnt it crazy how the only three people who answered your question were trying to sell something to scam you? they do the same thing to me whenever i answer a question on here. the only thing i can suggest to you is to maybe start avon or sell mark cosmetics, you can sell avon strictly online, and you dont have to go door to door anymore. i'm looking to get started with it myself. I hope it helps, its an idea. :)
  • I never really took college seriously until now. I live in Alabama and want to get accepted to California State University. I am currently in the 10th grade. Okay so me and my bff were planning on renting apartment together when we move to LA or anywhere close by there. We also will have to have an job and I now want to go to college and my friend might do online college but I also want her to go to a University because it was my idea to move to LA and she loved the idea since we both hate Alabama. I dont really have all the details but yeah is there a way to get into college if I dont have a fund. I dont do sports but Im going to do tennis in the spring, join FBLA, and any volunteer work that helps the environment or less fortunate. Any advice?
  • Your best bet is FAFSA but going to college in CA is going to result in major student debt in the end. With FAFSA you may qualify for federal aid or a government loan. Honestly, with things the way they are now, you should seriously consider any school that gives you a scholarship. Why don't you look at schools in or around Memphis TN or a closer southern state? It'll be less expensive and less annoyingly Southern than AL.
  • LOL, I didn't seriously consider college until... SENIOR year AND I didn't (don't) have a college fund either!! Anyway, I've always done well with school however. So, I started at a community college, with scholarships paying for EVERYTHING! (and more!) (yay!) and now I'm in the process of applying to a very prestigious university.... Anyway, my advice for you. Do well in you classes! Take AP, the most difficult courses you can! Take atleast 2 years of a foreign language. Participate in as many things as possible. Find places to volunteer at. Be involved with clubs and other extra curricular activities. -Better yet, start your OWN club! Additionally, I have to mention that it is much easier for transfer students to get accepted. So if you don't get accepted into your dream school, you can start @ a community college, save alot of money, and be eligible for mroe scholarships! There are so many scholarships available that they can pay for most of your school (or all of your first 2 years, like mine!) Hope that helps and good luck!
  • Depending on your family's income, you may have your college tuition reduced significantly by federal aid and scholarships. A lot of people work in college, so you could get a part-time job to pay for anything that your family can't take care of. Don't worry too much about the money yet; focus on getting good grades, and being active in your out-of-school activities.
  • Alright, here's a little scenario. If I enroll into classes online IN-STATE for up to ONE YEAR in advance then move OUT OF STATE, will I still be eligible for those credits? And will my IN STATE in the new state begin when I move?? I'm over 24 years old, I have financial independance, and I DO NOT require student loans. My school is paid for out of my own pocket. Further, I'm not moving for school purposes but I AM going to continue my education in a new state. Thanks for you help!
  • Since you are over 24 you can become a resident of the state. However, you cannot go to school while you establish your residency. You need to work, get a license, vote and pay taxes usually for a full year. If you go to school you will not be an in state resident. Some states are stricter on residency requirements than others. In my state of California they are very strict. If you are going to move somewhere that few people want to move to for school, they will be more lenient.
  • I'm trying to become a RN in Family Care. I'm only 15 but I wanna start saving now so I have enough money :) I was thinking about a college in California or Florida. But if there is a better college please let me know so I can look at the website. I just want and estimate on how much per year or for my master's. Thanks so much :)
  • If you attend a state university and commute from home, you can expect around 8,000-12,000 per year for tuition. Add another $9,000-11,000 for room and board if you live on campus. A private college or university will run around $25,000 a year, PLUS room and board (again- $9,000-11,000). Nursing is not a career where you need to attend an "Ivy League" school to get a good job. You simply need to make sure the college/university you attend has their nursing program accredited by the NLN. If not, you'll be hard-pressed to get a nursing license and a decent job. The following link shows what programs are accredited: http://www.nlnac.org/Forms/directory_sea...Beware of for-profit schools that advertise things like "Be an RN in 18 months" or "Earn your nursing degree online". They are not accredited for nursing and are not much more than money-making scams. Go that route and you'll end up with an enormous debt to pay back and a worthless "degree". Also, keep in mind that nearly all Associate Degree programs in the US have at least a one year wait list...if not 2 years. Most of the time, you can get your education at a state university completely covered by student loans and possibly a couple of grants. Since you are just 15, I would strongly encourage you to go straight into a BSN program. I've met enough LPN's that had always planned to become RN's and also RN's that wanted the BSN (myself included) but "life" got in the way and they were stuck with their minimal credentials. Trying to work and go to school is not a fun combo, especially if you have a family to support. At age 15, all I can say is study hard, be responsible when it comes to guys (as in don't get pregnant), and keep your eye on the prize -the nursing degree! Best wishes!
  • You can start out by attending community college, get your Associate Degree, then Bridge RN to BSN. Then BSN to MSN. That actually would be a cheaper route. As far as saving for nursing school, that is great. Finanical aid is available also to assist with your tuition.
  • Do liberals think that right after slashing taxes, its just a coincidence that Canada and Germany now have the lowest unemployment, record job creation, and most robust economies in the industrial world? USA Corporate Tax = 43% (California for example would be 35% federal + 8.8% State) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporate_t...Germany lowers effective corporate tax from 38.7% to 29% http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/02/busine...Canada lowers effective corporate tax from 42.6% to 15% http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424...
  • Why do you give the "text book" tax rate for the US? When the effective US tax rate (same as your other references) is really 15-17%, the lowest of three. AND....Canada never went into a recession, because they regulate their loan industry and didn't have a bunch of bogus loaning. AND....Germany spent much more stimulus per capita for their recovery, that we're still working through.
  • You know what else they have to compliment this? Federally sponsored subsidies to make sure that employees stay on half time instead of getting fired, state sponsored maternity leave, state sponsored health care, among others. All of which reduce cost to the employer but is something that conservatives would clutch their pearls at when thinking of such subsidies.
  • The effective corporate tax rate in the US is 17% and most corporations don't pay taxes at all. http://www.reuters.com/article/2008/08/1...
  • Because they don't spend like the US on wars ..
  • I don't mind these cuts at all... what are their personal taxes? nothing is free?
  • And democrats wonder why Multinational firms like Cisco, keep all that revenue they earn from overseas sales OUT OF AMERICA! and would be idiot businessmen to bring it back just to watch it go to Obama to redistribute
  • I don't think they're major factors.
  • because they arent morons
  • I almost did this very thing. I "met" someone online and we had this amazing connection. I lived in Iceland, though I am from California and she lived in India. She was not feeling well at that time and eventually, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. My friend was a teacher of small children. In her spare time, she taught the village mothers how to speak English. She volunteered at the orphanage. She took sole care of her elderly parents. She wrote articles and had them published. In other words, she was a woman who lived life. She was also a woman who had been beaten by her husband and then thrown back. Shamed by her society and told she was bad luck. She was shunned. There was no money for her medical needs. There was no money for her parents' needs. I didn't have a steady job myself, but there was no way I was going to let my friend die. She felt like a sister to me, and that is how we view each other. I took out a loan to help pay her medical costs. I shared her story with another friend of mine...and she did more than enough to help out. My friend ended up having to have 2 brain surgeries and she hovered near death's door. I went without food and sleep, but the most important thing was for my friend to live. She had not finished up her life yet. She now lives, although she is weak. It will take a long time to recover, but we know she will. To this day, I still do not have a refrigerator or many other things most people take for granted, as I invested my money in Life. So...to answer your question, yes I would and I was willing to do so. I was willing to give up everything for the life of my friend.
  • Yes, this is easy for me to answer. I lost a grandson who was only 23 years old and I am 80 years old. Need I say more.
  • Yes, if that person was very dear to me I would. Even though they would not see me anymore, they would be happy living.
  • i would if the person was very close to me
  • never a star.....................make that never,never,never a star.... the others,,,,,,,,,,,,,don't know...............
  • Hi, am am looking into buying a new car and this is the first time i ever purchase a car. i read many articles online but i still feel a little under prepared since i stopped by a car lot this morning and i kinda get the feeling that the dealer wasn't taking me seriously and was trying to rip me off >< so my question is do you guys have any suggestions and advice? I just graduated from college and i have decided to buy a car in cash i have around 20g saved up and am looking into Nissan sentra or a Toyota corolla. of course i do not want to pay 20g for a car more like around 15g. so any advice will help :) also which car out of the two would you rather have? and i live in southern California if that make a difference. your help will be greatly appreciated, thank you :D
  • Dont ever buy sticker price, the price on the window of the car. Find out what the invoice price is at Edmunds .com and you can buy a car about 1500 dollars over invoice. Right now is a good time to buy a car because its getting closer to the end of the year. Theyll negotiate a bit because they need to get rid of the new cars off the lot because the dealership will have to pay a tax. I bought my Toyota 500 dollars over invoice late in the year in November last year, that is awesome. So if you can wait even til about October, its good. If not you can still get a good deal. I know your paying with cash but if you ever have to get a loan the interest rate is negotiable, always say no to high interst cuz the dealer will always call you back. Another thing if this guy made you feel something wasnt right for you go to another dealership you like and dont let them ever rush you, always get everything in writing whatever deal they give you. You probably also take someone older with you..like an older brother or your Dad . I like both cars but I think Toyota is a lil better, smoother my opinion, thats all. Always try to get them to through something in like window tint or floor mats. When you buy a car the dealer always cleans it, washes it and fills up the tank, so make sure. Good luck!
  • Main rules I have for you, wait one day to make sure its the car you want, low ball em on price, get used car that has low miles, be willing to wait for a better car. Omg on that last one if I just learned to wait I would've been driving a car 100xes better then what I do now..
  • Check reliability on Edmunds. Com before you make your decision ask if you can get the car inspected by a mechanic Check carfax to make sure it hasn't been wrecked Don't be afraid to buy used.
  • This 25 year old son seems to to depend on mom for everything for him, from buying his health insurance, to submitting resumes, and to allowing him to live in the house WITHOUT contributing AT ALL to the household expenses. He only has to mow the yard, He does work fulltime and has a plan to live with us until he is 30. This is so he can pay off his college loans. In mom's eyes, this son does nothing wrong at all. He is a middle school teacher. I know other teachers his age who work two jobs just so they can be on their own. I feel the kids should be guided and offered minimal assistance to learn lessons presented to them in life. I think he should be in an apartment on his own. Wife does not believe so. I also add, that we went to look at Christmas lights. 25 year old son provokes 23 year old daughter, SERIOUSLY, he was acting like a five year old, taunting her verbally. I heard her ask him several times not to touch her hair and to stop saying "Woof" to her. As soon as daughter sent him a text calling him assorted words I will not repeat, he pushes his cell in front of us to show us what she sent him. Mom scoulds the daughter. To be fair, I sided with the daughter, and yet again, Mom makes excuses for his behavior, but that the daughters was wrong. This 25 year old gets away with everything. It was almost as if he was intentionally trying to get his sister yelled at, which happened from mom. The oldest, a boy, DOES NOT DATE AT ALL, and has no friends to hang out with. This kid even holds his spoon like a five year old in the fist with his thumb balancing the spoon on the main tong. When asked to weedwack, blow, and edge the yard etc. Mom makes excuses that the power cords are to hard to pull to start the engines. I firmly believe this is a momma's boy and it will NOT change. I even offered to pay for an online dating site for him. No luck. Now, 23 year old daughter is living back home as well. Mom has suddenly decided that since the kids are home, we have to spend our time with them, thus taking away our time together. It's like having small children again. This is very frustrating. What are your thoughts on this??
  • Wow, your wife not love them both.. just love her son.. and yes it is momma boy.. I mean that so silly for him to do that to his sister and then sister text him and he can't be man enough to accpect that??? so he has to show to his momma.. and momma punished her daughter for that... He getting away alot of things.. I am getting feelings that he will not move out.. He will not learn anything once he moved out.. he will beg mom not to let him moved out... I mean serious you have the right to kick him out he has full time job.. But if he going to live with you guys.. then he should be paying Rent, Food, and bills.. It not fair for you to pay for it and he not paying... wow.. It blew my mind how he act like that... You know my mom used to do that to me.. and my friends tells me to move out.. i was like no no.. finally when I was 22 years old I moved from Washington state to California.. and I am glad I did... first I told my mom I am moving she ask me why? I told her if you died tomorrow.. how would i learn to take care of myself..such rent, bills, food, jobs.. stuff like that and she told me it makes sense.. so she let me go.. i am happy i did that... I hate to be my momma boy... smiling... You can tell your wife that you are man in this house that our son will start paying rent, bill and food.. and Because he 25 years old.. and he is not a child.. and If he don't learn how to pay bills and learn how to help in the family... he will never learn anything out there... and He will beg you to not make him move out.. you think it fair?? I don't think so... If my kids live with me after finished high school and want to still live with me.. I would tell them ok you have to pay rent, bills and food.. I can't do it on myself to support you guys.. I know my kids will want to help... But your son is already Momma boy and he will not change at all.. wow...
  • After reading your post I went back to the top because I thought maybe I misread something, I didn't you did state that he is a teacher. That is the scariest part of all. It is obvious that he has never grown up and that is not what we want our children to learn. Kids learn by example, he is a bad example. As you don't state if your wife and her children of European decent I am just guessing. If they are it explains why they are still at home. However that being said it does not explain their childishness. They need to both grow up the the boy appears to need to the most. The girl needs to learn to not react to his pranks. They will both continue to be as they are as long as you and your wife enable it. What you need to do is sit down with your wife and explain to her that until they learn to stand on their own two feet and be self sufficient they will not be able to cope on their own once she is gone. She needs to cut the apron strings and force them both to move out and learn to live on their own while she is still there to help with advise. If she doesn't once she is no longer there they will be lost and not able to manage on their own. What she is doing is actually harming them even though it is done with good intentions. She is robbing them of their independence and the life lessons they need to learn while she is still around to help teach them. Good Luck!
  • She is enabling them and they will never grow up, they will continue this way because it is making everyone happy. Your wife is making a huge mistake here by putting her children's selfish needs above yours. This is going to rip your family apart. You are never going to win, and the boy will start wedging in between you and your wife. If you and your wife can not stand together, then your marriage will be torn to shreds
  • a million) enhance the lease. If she doesn't like that. flow out. Then she will be able to understand she develop into actual getting a significant lower price residing with moms and dads. it really is termed growing up. I Paid my mom $three hundred a month. some thing else of the $three hundred I worked around the abode/horses/acres. Now, we pay $1800 for on base housing, which will drop to $900 BAH (including few hundred to BAH out of our paycheck, which actual paying $1200 a month for a house there) after we flow out of state in some months for defense force re-area. On a $2,2 hundred earnings, that places a dent into it. So your daughter is truly getting by less expensive! 2) once she began paying lease, she is taken into consideration a room mate renting out of your position. If she needs to have that life form, get her own position. until eventually then, if she doesn't %. up her outfits, get rid of what you would possibly want to %. up. she will be able to study a thanks to no longer go away her stuff laying round. so a techniques as her room...even although she rents the area, she ought to preserve it. meaning, require a deposit for at the same time as she strikes out, you'll get new carpet, carpet sparkling, re paint etc. regulations of the abode. in case you take advantage of it, it should be placed back the position were given it contained in the placement you recieved it in.

  • you should of settled for a bl0wj0b both times
  • Hi, I'm a sophomore and at my school we're really pressured to plan out our lives after high school. So, I would like to know what are some decent colleges in the west (preferably states around CA or in CA) that would be good for an english major and preferably have a sports program or club sports because I love softball. Yale and Berkley and all those other fancy schools are out of the picture because my family can't afford it and I definitely am not up to "Yale" standards. Anywhere with a decent tuition and isn't all that challenging to get accepted. (Regardless, I know I have to work for any college and any college will be a task to get accepted to, but you know..)
  • I agree with the answer from Nancy. First, hold conversations with a high school counselor and ask your questions. From the info in your question, I am going to assume you live in California. You have an excellent selection of both government supported colleges/universities (CSU campuses and UC campuses) as well as private non-profit/independent colleges/universities (not to be confused with for-profit/career/proprietary colleges/universities.) I suggest you keep your school search to just Calif. You do need to consider the cost of travel to/from your chosen campus at the beginnings and ends of semesters plus at break and holiday times. As Nancy stated, a private school may offer a greater portion of the cost of attending as financial aid (with money coming not only from Federal funds but from the funds of the school itself - grants and loans.) I graduated from a private univ. in Wis. and with financial aid (Federal aid + scholarships + grants from the school I attended) the total cost was far less than it would have been to attend a Wis. state funded univ. A HS counselor will help you identify schools in Calif. that will meet your needs and interests. I do recommend you do your best to earn all As in your high school classes so you will have a high GPA in your senior year. A student high GPA combined with a low family income will result in your receiving scholarships and grants (merit based) and need based financial aid. To help give you a start, I recommend you read this from the well-respected publication US News and World Report: A+ Options for B Students: http://colleges.usnews.rankingsandreview...Look at the Calif. schools (state funded and private non-profit/independent) listed there. Also look at this from US News and World Report - Best Value Schools: http://colleges.usnews.rankingsandreview...+++++++++++++++++++++++ Added: For those who may "pooh-pooh" majoring in English and who think there are not good career paths for English majors, they are very short sighted. You may be interested in reading this online article about possible careers for English majors: http://jobsforenglishmajors.net/careers-...This web page gives more info on careers for English majors: http://www.selloutyoursoul.com/2011/12/19/jobs-for-english-majors/ Also talk with your high school librarian or a reference librarian at the local public library.

  • I can't say what a good school would be because I'm not familiar with schools out west. However, I did want to respond to your comment about not being able to afford all those "fancy schools". Students often make the mistake of assuming that because a school has a high tuition, they can't afford it. Often that's not the case because schools with high tuition frequently also have higher amounts of financial aid to offer, especially to students with lower incomes. I have worked with many students who discovered that the expensive private school actually came out to be cheaper than a public university. Some will even meet 100% of your remaining need after your expected family contribution. Check out the website for Williams College in Massachusetts for a detailed look at how this works. As for choosing to be an English major, you are smart to consider what you are likely to earn after graduation when thinking about how much to pay for college. It's true that teachers don't earn much and it's often difficult to find a teaching job these days. But English majors have a lot more options than teaching---just ask J.K. Rowling! (Her agent and her editor, didn't do too badly, either--two other options for things to do with an English degree). So, even if you really do want to be a teacher, go for what's right for you. After all, the world needs SOME teachers--why not you? And, if what the counselors at the unemployment security office are telling me is correct, there is a starting to be a glut of nurses from all those people who decided to jump into nursing because there were supposed to be jobs there. By the time you get out of college, it could be that people will be advising students to go into English because there are no jobs for nurses! Good Luck
  • Honestly if i were you i would pursue a nursing major due to the simple fact that nurses are in demand. If you decide to pursue an english major you will have a hard time finding a job and teachers dont get paid much. Careers in nursing or criminal justice such as a police officer are in high demand and if something bad were to happen such as a war you would be guranteed a job. I dont know if you have been watching the news but many college graduates are having a hard time finding jobs due to the simple fact that they choose majors that are simply not in demand and jobs are hard to find as well because they want you to acquire all this experience which graduates just dont have.
  • If knowledge procedures is what you wish then opt for it. Don't doubt your self. Make definite you primary in some thing that you just love and will receives a commission for and in addition is helping to get into the knowledge procedures grad tuition.
  • Please, reconsider going for an English major.
  • Full Sail university is a rip-off, so if that is what you want, there you should be able to find a poor-quality, high-cost school nearly anywhere. Most of the for-profit schools are online so it really does not matter where you are. They can pick your pocket from anywhere. The reason I am so negative about Full Sail is that it is a for-profit school. That means their greatest concern is how much money they make, NOT how well they educate their students. Most for-profits admit any type of student, just to get their tuition dollars. And then the give those students passing grades in any course, no matter how well or poorly the student actually did, in order to keep those tuition dollars coming in. Tuition rates are generally very high at these schools, so most students end up owing a lot of money for a poor-quality education. And most employers are not impressed by a for-profit degree, so the graduates of for-profits have a hard time finding a job, and thus a hard time paying off the exorbitant student loans they have accumulated. Skip the Full Sail option and look for a non-profit university that has a program you are interested in.
  • Full Sail University is a great college and has an extensive online program! I have a blog dedicated to answering people's questions like yours. You should check it out http://fullsailunveiled.wordpress.com/ and you can even email me your questions personally. I am currently attending Full Sail University and my Uncle graduated from Full Sail and went on to be the lead artist for EA Sports. I'm also on Twitter @FullSailBlog
  • Please be aware that full sail is ONLY nationally accredited which is not even the minimum regional accreditation. They're one of those private For-profit schools, too. On that note, even with those for-profit schools that are regionally accredited (such as devry, university of phoenix, capella, walden, strayer and keiser), their course credits usually do ** NOT ** transfer to other schools. Just about all community colleges and state-public universities offer some online classes. Those schools are usually more affordable (and reputable). Just an fyi that "American public university" is a for-profit school.

  • Your first step would be to apply for federal financial aid. You would do that by completing the FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. You can do it online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. There are several questions on the FAFSA that will determine if you are a dependent or independent student. Most students under the age of 24 are dependents, and have to include parent information on the FAFSA. This is true even if you are not living with them, are self-supporting, or you were not claimed on their tax return. Parents who complete the FAFSA are not obligated to accept a loan or pay for their child's education in any way. Once the FAFSA is completed, it will be sent to the schools you select and the information on it will be used to prepare a package of financial aid offers for you. This could include grants that you don't have to pay back, loans that you pay back after graduation, state aid or school scholarships. The financial aid packages can differ quite a bit from school to school. You can compare them to help you decide which one to choose. In California, you can also apply for the CalGrant, but you need to complete the FAFSA first. Here is a link with information about the CalGrant: http://www.calgrants.org/Good Luck!

  • My daugher is going to be a senior and wants to attend college. She wants to go to the university and says community college is out of the question. We don't have much and putting money away has been difficult. I know I have to help her with applying for grants/loans etc. What options are there for ways to help with school costs and how do I start? She is almost 17 and she doesn't even have a job yet!
  • please, file the fafsa online at: www.fafsa.ed.gov this will start you on the process to getting financial aid for your daughter. you need to do this after january first, 2007 and before your states deadline date (in california it's march 2nd, cuz that is the deadline for the cal grant). by filling out the application, your family is given an expected family contribution (EFC) this is how much your family is expected to spend in order to send your child to college. this number is fixed and doesn't change just because the cost of the college changes. so, your daughter is really smart. let's say you get an efc of $2,000. you will have to pay that same amount if she went to a jc, state school or private school. i tell my kids they can have a pinto, civic, or jaguar for the same price, which do you get? after you file the fafsa, the gov't sends your efc to the schools listed on the application (the ones your child is thinking about attending). it is then the schools job to put together a financial aid package. if the school costs $18,000 for tuition, room and board, books, transportation, etc. and you have an efc of $2000, then the school has to find $16,000 in financial aid to give you. this could be a combination of loans, grants, college specific scholarships, work study, etc. if you want to get started on also applying for scholarships (cuz you will have to bug your daughter to do it every week!) please check out fastweb.com. it's a great site for scholarships. also, have your daughter talk to the career center and they can give you the info on any local scholarships. as far as the job, have her get one as long as it doesn't interfer with her studies. just make sure she doesn't make too much over $1750. this will effect your family's efc and backfire on you later. good luck!
  • Hey--I'm seventeen as well and I'm sure my parents are losing sleep over the same dilemma. Let me pass on some "College common sense" as far as paying for things. Community colleges normally aren't the best way to go. The best experiences are at the four-year universities. However, many of these universities know that most parents don't have enough to pay for their child's schooling. Thus, a system has been put in place to help students. During your child's senior year, if her high school is at all like mine, she will fill out a form called FAFSA--The free application for federal studnt aid. When she fills out this form and sends it to her schools, it gives them an idea of how much they need to put forth for her to come. The FAFSA also gives an estimated parent contribution and student contribution. Bah. I have to go take the ACT, but I'll be back. In case I forget there are two key things you need to remember: 1) fastweb.com is a great site for scholarships 2)avoid loans if at all possible. I must go now. I'll try to be be back later. --VG
  • If I had it to do over again, I would have done a CC for 2 years and gotten all my pre-requisites out of the way and then transferred to a 4 year school. There is nothing wrong with a community college! How many 17 year olds know what they want to study? The first 2 years are all basics anyway, why not take them as cheaply as possible? Many CC's have agreements with 4 year universities and work in tandem to make sure the student is taking the correct classes to have a smooth transition. You can also try this: There are tons of scholarships that go unclaimed each year. Many $400, $500 or $1000 scholarships never even get applied for because people think it's chump change and not worth applying for. Well, get a few of those $500 scholarships and it'll really make a dent in your tuition bill. Do a search on scholarships, search your major, your ethnic heritage, your town, your parents employers, your employer, hobbies, high school, local chamber of commerce/rotary/ lion's club etc. Left-handed? There is a scholarship out there for you! Older woman returning to school? There are scholarships out there for you. Do combined searches on more than one criteria "hispanic women aviation scholarships" etc. Go to the library and ask the reference librarian for a reference book on scholarships. They usually have more than one. There are all kinds of scholarships out there, you just have to start applying yourself and make it your summer career to send out letters everyday for scholarships. Good luck!
  • www.fafsa.ed.gov You have to apply for federal aid no matter what your financial situation is. In my case, my dad made too much money (even though he still made me pay) for me to get federal aid, but your daughter might be able to get some. Also, I would try to get her enrolled in college credit classes while still in highschool so she can get some basics out of the way.
  • I cannot tell you enough about all the good things that came from me doing a Walt Disney World Internship! I went to the internship program at Disney World in Orlando Florida in the Fall of 2001 and was cast as a Merchandise Hostess at the Disney MGM Studios Animation Courtyard. I loved every minute I was there! I don't know if they have re-opened the program at Disneyland in California, but I highly recommend the one in Orlando! You get in free to all of the parks (so you can play when you aren't working) and get the cast member discount on all merchandise and restaurants. My roommates and I still keep in touch to this day and see each other when we can. I met my husband while on the internship and we love to go back to Disney to re-live old times. :) Plus, having Disney (a fortune 500 company) listed on your resume looks amazing to an employer in ANY industry! After I got home from my 5 month internship, every job interview I had centered around my Disney experience. Employers were just interested to know about it! So yes, go go go and don't hesitate! It was quite honestly the best time of my life-- better than high school and college combined! Some tips: visit the college program website at www.wdwcollegeprogram.com and see where the Disney Reps will be visiting next. Keep in mind that you only have to be enrolled in college, but it doesn't have to be the college they are visiting. Just find the closest one near you. Attend the presentation and sign up for an interivew Smile and just be yourself! You must have attended college for at least one semester before and have a GPA of at least a 2.0 in order to be considered. If selected, you'll only have to pay for your flight out there and you'll want a bit of spending money to tied you over until your first paycheck. I took $300 with me and that was plenty. Take lots of pictures and try not to take on too much school work from the college you are attending back home. I found it was much easier to take one class from my college (a marketing professor said he would give me 3 units credit if I kept a journal of what I learned at work for the first 3 weeks) and notified financial aid and my student loan people that I was taking a leave of absence. I had a roommate who brought 12 units of online school work with her and we never saw her. So don't load yourself down with school stuff... trust me, school can be put on hold for the time you're out there. You will not regret it. Having Disney on your resume sends you leagues above everyone else with a bachelors degree. Feel free to contact me again if you have any more questions. After I returned home from the program, I signed on to be a campus rep for my university. So I have lots of details and know-how. Just look up my profile or check out my Disney Vacation Service Blog (my new little company) to get back in touch: http://im-all-ears-disney-vacation-servi...Good Luck! :) Best, Brianna
  • Your contract (even if it's DIY) IS enforceable in court. Now if he can prove he was a juvenile, intoxicated, insane or under duress when he signed; it can give him an out. It does not matter which state your in and dont provide details online, it can hurt you. It's a pretty simple case. There is no need for details except one (competent parties).  You loaned him money, which is the offer.  He accepted by taking the money and signing the contract which is the acceptance. It's has legal purpose, because loaning money is not illegal as long as you don't charge over 10% interest (usery). Mutuality of obligation is met because you signed a contract saying you would loan him money, you loaned it based on him paying it back as the contract should state. Consideration is met, no matter which way you look at it (unilateral or bilateral). First element of consideration is the agreement is of value to one or more of the parties. Money is of value to both parties. If you look at it as a unilateral contract, you promised then performed your promise by loaning the money. He has partially performed his promise by accepting. If you look at it as a bilateral contract; you offered, a contact was sigened, he accecpted. Now it's his turn to "perform" his end of the agreement. The "iffy" element/detail is "competent parties" if both of you are over 18, not insane, not intoxicated or under duress upon sigining. Then this element is met.  The elements of a contract are met in your case. As for the voice recording...You can legally record (without his consent) if your a party to the conversation only if you DONT live in any of these states: California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Washington. If you DO live in one of those states then you have to have his consent to record. If your not a party to the conversation, then its illegal to voice record nomatter what. Do not admit to recording him if your not legally able to. It could give him legal cause to counter sue. P.S "lay person" your a joke.
  • You don't have all proof but yet you have a signed contract and a voice recording! what more proof do you need? video evidence?
  • What sort of "contract"? Who crafted it? If you did a DYI promissory note, chances are it will not be enforceable in court. Most lay people have no idea what elements must be in a "contract" to make it enforceable in a court of law. Can you provide details? And what state are you in? and how did you obtain the recording?
  • Ahhh..you have proof! What else do you need? Video recording of them accepting the money? You have all you need to go to court...and you have a good chance of winning, unless your ex has receipts where they paid you. ~~Donna~~
  • in case you (call) do no longer conform to pay me by utilising (date), i would be compelled to take you to court docket for damages. this is binding simply by "time is of the essence settlement you basically submitted to him. A court docket would require specific overall performance. Time of the Essence. Time is of the essence with appreciate to all provisions of this contract that designate a time for overall performance; provided, in spite of the shown fact that, that the foregoing shall no longer be construed to cut back or deprive a occasion of the advantages of any grace or use era allowed in this contract.
  • that is proof....
  • I am a student in 9th grade right now and I plan on joining the video game industry. It fascinates me and I am determined to be one. The schools I have interest in are DigiPen and USC. DigiPen is way up in Redmond, Washington which is farther away than where I live, Moreno Valley, California, and USC is practically a private school; my family doesn't really have the money for it, due to my older sister going to UCLA. Any good college will do fine, but those two interest me the most. I have a question about courses in high school, too. What classes do I need to take before I start going to any video game design school?
  • You've set your sights high - and appropriately. USC is the top of the list of the best game design schools according to the Princeton Review. USC is not a private school and there are grants and loans available to you as a student of a state-sponsored school such as USC. I don't think you should have to settle for less than the best, especially since you live relatively close to it. Visit http://gamedesignschools411.com/ to learn more. Why not consider doing some of the fundamental undergraduate courses at a local community college and save your core video game design courses for USC? Go to your first 2 years at the local college and take English, PE, Biology, Chemistry, Math, Political Science and whatever else, etc. Then, transfer your credits and finish at USC. That way, when you finally earn your degree, it is from USC - and potential employers will take notice. This way you keep your bills small, by living at home during your first two years while getting the basic classes out of the way at a cheaper school. You could work part-time or even full-time while attending school those first two years, to help offset the costs. To answer about what courses to take in high school - anything that gets you working in your chosen field. Do you want to program and write code? Or would you rather do the art and graphics for games? Do you like working with lots of math and science? Coding for 3D animations may be your thing; or working with game physics engines. If you love art and design, then you probably won't like the coding stuff. To get started right now, you should be trying to tweak existing games by editing game levels. Get a feel for that and see if you are any good at it. Also, get involved with the online game development communities such as Gamasutra.com and GameDeveloper Magazine, etc. Ask people in those forums about what they do now and what courses helped to prepare them for that job. You might even be so bold as to try and develop a simple game for the iPhone or Android Marketplace. You never know, maybe you'll develop the next Angry Birds app!
  • Me to, man, Me to! I am around your age to and am wondering the same thing! I'd love to make games like Saints row the third, Or battlefield.
