Frequently asked questions about california private money

  • I taught at a private K-12 school for less than one year. I made only $19,000 and it would have been less if I took the crappy benefit package. I hated every minute of it. It was horrible.
  • LACHSA is the l. a. County intense college for the humanities, placed next to Cal State l. a... yet that's no longer an excellent community. you're able to inspect Flintridge Prep, a private college placed in l. a. Cañada, 10 miles northeast of downtown l. a.. It has an suggestions-blowing academic attractiveness, and a colourful appearing arts branch. in actuality, a marginally fashionable actor is at present a pupil there (you're able to understand the call, yet i do no longer desire to "out" all individuals right here on the information superhighway). initiate finding for residences in l. a. Cañada and l. a. Crescenta. it fairly is a huge place to stay, and not too far from Hollywood and Burbank, the place you is frequently going for auditions.
  • This is not true. Here are two situations that mean you must have a credential: 1. The school receives title 1 federal funds. (most schools in california do) any federal funds means the school must be held accountable to the NCLB laws. 2. The school is accredited. Most high school need to be accredited as their goal is to get kids into college. This means you must have a credential. You seem to be trying to take the shortcut in. Our students need quality teachers. It is a mistake to think that just anyone can teach. Do it right - take the time.
  • $30-40K depending on degree and courses you can teach and school.
  • There are lots of great schools - both public and private - but I think you need to some more research on pricing and expected financial aid. It is possible that a private school might offer a good amount of money, but you have to balance that against the overall cost. Pepperdine, Chapman and Pitzer all have Creative Writing but they cost $50-60K per year (tuition plus room & board). So even if they offered you $20K per year you would pay more a one of those than if you plaid in full at UCLA. Also understand that there are grants and need-based financial aid as well as merit (grade or talent-based) scholarships.
  • Why go to a private college if you have low household income? Go to a public school. You can still take the same classes there.
  • You can get student loans for any school in California as long as you are a state resident. If not, then Pepperdine is pretty good. UC Santa Barbara is a huge writers.film school as is UCLA and USC. If it were me, I'd go to UCLA but that' just me... Good Luck.
  • Im a sophomore, i'm just getting ready, i'm not planning on emailing any of the schools yet. I'm a soccer player, and i do track. I have good grades. I'm deciding between two majors, a teacher and something to do with law. I'd like the school i choose to have both, but if i had to choose one it would be education/ liberal studies. I need cheaper colleges cause i have a twin and were both planning on going, and were not high on money. I'm considering state schools, but if i did i would want it to be kind of small, with not alot of people. Any suggestions?
  • Pepperdine University is a private college in California. It is affiliated with the Church of Christ. Since it is a private school it is fairly expensive (like around 50,000), but lots of scholarships are available, especially if you are part of the Church of Christ or really smart. They have a good education program and a good pre-law one. Haha my dad got his law degree thingy from Pepperdine. If you go maybe we will end up there together since I'm a sophomore as well and I want to go there! :)
  • Well, if you finish 60 semester units (or 90 quarter units), your Vanguard grades will be extraneous.
  • Vanguard, Biola, Azusa Pacific, etc.
  • I have a friend whose son is 14 and going into sophmore year at a private high school. He is also a straight-A student. The problem is, they need financial aid or some sort of scholarship in order to continue going to to that school, which is VERY important to the mom. But the school itself does not offer scholarships. What are some high school scholarship or financial aid programs that I can give her info about how to apply to? Or any sort of academic contest where he could earn a scholarship or aid money? This is very important. Also if you know of any scholarship website where you can chose different languages for which one is shown that would be perfect, because the mom is shaky with english. Thank you very very much for any help!!
  • go to fastweb.com they have tons of schoalrships. i
  • Only if it does not pass the smog. All they have to do is get and pass the smog and you have no case.
  • What if the seller spent your money and no longer has it ? You MAY be able to sue, but how would you collect if you win and the guy doesn't hand over the money ?
  • Because all the politicians know how to do is spend. It's an obsession with them, and they need more, more more money all the time. They want to take it from others, and spend. When California first started the lottery back in the 80s, it was supposed to add to the education budget. The politicians, led by Willie Brown, took a dollar out of the education budget for every dollar the lottery put in, so the schools had no net gain. And what did the politicians do with the money? They spent it!
  • They claim they can host the Olympics with no major taxpayer involvement by utilizing existing venues (we have hosted this twice before after all) and using private funding to build some more dorms near UCLA that the university wants anyway. However, we would get stuck with the massive security bill and one can't overestimate the hit to a city that has very poor public transportation in trying to host a major even like an Olympiad. In short, California elected officials have delusions of grandeur and they tend to fiddle while Rome is burning. The unspoken truth about this winter is that most of the rain we're getting right now is rolling off into the sea because we don't have sufficient water storage (yet the Governor thinks a 100 Billion dollar train out in the middle of nowhere that is slower than driving and more expensive than flying is where our priorities should lie). They also seem to have come up with millions to pay for lawyers for illegals while the state has the highest poverty and homelessness rates in the country.
  • Why cant anyone??see priorities wrong,because if olympics are to be sucessful,aholes,infrastructure has to be good,costing billipns.
  • Dan your trollings gave me cancer Fūck you Dan I am on deathbed because of you sick mozerphucker ????
  • Because the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles were a total success.
  • Your mother sucksCOCK for free in bus station restrooms. Your dad takes it up the @ss from Negroez in prison and likes it. You are the product of incest, your mother should have swallowed you like she did gallons and gallons of semen from strangers. Fiilthy filthy whoore has more STD's than a PDR. (Look that up you phucking retard, your brain is as worthless as your whoore of a mother is) Go beat off some more to gay porn you cocksuckerfaggot while your mother spreads her legs for twinkies and food stamps to feed your worthlessAss, Die in fire, your whole family, die in fire.
  • The Olympics bring money in.
  • This is assuming that CSUs are accepting for spring 2011. UCs aren't accepting for spring 2011. :( I am in my last semester at community college and do not want to wait. These are the schools I am planning to apply for Spring 2011: SF state San Jose state CSU East Bay Holy Names University University of San Francisco Please bear in mind that money will be a problem (unfortunately I wasn't born filthy rich) and overall my question is: Would it cost less for me if I just attended a private school because it is not guaranteed that I will get all my classes at a CSU. Opinions and comments are welcomed. Please help!
  • Thanks for your interest in Cal State East Bay (CSUEB). Please consider the following when deciding your next steps. We will be accepting upper-division transfer applications for Spring Quarter 2011; applications will be accepted Aug. 1-Aug. 31. However, because the California Governor and Legislature have not yet adopted a budget, CSU does not know how many students it can admit. While CSUEB will process applications conditionally, no offer of admission will be sent until we know more about the budget, including funding to support an increase in CSU’s enrollment. Once a budget is adopted, CSUEB’s Office of Admission will notify students about their options: (1) if the budget provides funding to increase CSU enrollment, CSUEB will finalize its review of students’ admission eligibility for the Spring 2011 quarter, or (2) if the budget does not provide additional funding to increase CSU’s enrollment, students will have the option either of (a) requesting that their admission application be changed from Spring 2011 to the Fall 2011 quarter, or (b) requesting that their admission application be withdrawn and the application fee be refunded. Good luck!
  • a million. UC transfers take CC scholars first. Then, if there may be nonetheless room, they take transfers from different UCs. And then, if there may be STILL room, they take transfers from every other institution. So in the event you wish to switch to a UC, CC is the right way to cross, NOT CSU. However, CSU presents a tight sufficient schooling, so you may also wish to don't forget it. In regular, a CSU schooling prepares you for a profession correct out of university, even as a UC schooling prepares you for graduate or reliable institution. two. Easier than what? three. Yes, you do retailer plenty of cash. Some men and women do not wish to reside at dwelling for 2 extra years. Some men and women do not wish to visit university with all people from top institution, however wish to visit university and meet new men and women. It's a private alternative.
  • i suggest you http://tinyurl.com/39tlc9j it will be helpful in resolving your problem keep using answers.yahoo.com
  • I tried to get into public nursing programs, however I repeated a science course three times (finished it with an A). Because I repeated it, I'm having extreme difficulty searching for schools, my counselors recommended a private school. I want to get into an accelerated nursing program, I know I can do it.. I mean that's a lot of money. AUHS was a no go unfortunately. Anyway, does anyone know any private colleges with a BSN program that will have a higher likelihood of accept me? Thanks.
  • Here is one in Irvine http://www.cui.edu/academicprograms/nurs...California is a big state. Are you willing to go anywhere?
  • I think you should speak to admissions officers at the RN programs you are interested in. Your stats all look pretty good, but sometimes there are intangibles that will indicate you aren't cut out for healthcare, and you might be dropped again. On paper, you look good, but in practice, it sounds like you struggle a lot. As you mature, you may develop better techniques to practice in healthccare, but some people never make it.
  • What you require at this moment is an associated nursing program as early as possible after your unsuccessful attempts. All the high standing profiles of the society are self taught and are highly successful in their life, hence you need not wait for any college to accept you.But, you just get yourself enrolled as a private student in any college that can proctor your exams for online courses. For this CRNA or Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist is a fast growing occupational program that pays annual average salary of $168,599/ as compared to non-crna's.
  • homeschooling can be as cheap or expensive as you want to make it. There are three ways to comply with the law: 1. Higher a tutor with a valid teaching credential. This is the most expensive option. It is often used by child actors. 2. Enroll in a ISP (independent study program). This can be free if you use a public school or charter school. Or cost money if you enroll in a private school ISP. 3. Establish your own private school. This is much easier than it sounds. It requires filing one form with the state each year and mainting a few records at home. Then you can school in whatever way you like. For free: use the internet and the public library and your community resources to school. Or expensive buy a complete curriculm from a company that provides this service. Or something in between. www.californiahomeschool.net and www.hsc.org can give you all the details and connect you with other families in your area.
  • This site: http://californiahomeschool.net/default.htm offers info on homeschooling legislation in California. There is a booklet of facts on how to home school that you can download. http://californiahomeschool.net/howTo/faq.htm The above link contains frequently asked questions and answers the one about how much homeschooling costs (as expensive as you want it to be!) Hope this helps.
  • hslda.org has all you state laws. It can be expensive to get the curriculums depending on what you use. Google home school curriculums and you may get overwhelmed with all the choices but look at them to figure out what your interested in and how much they cost.
  • You would be wise not to give the seller any money until you get the title. To do that you may have to meet him at the credit union. If you are going to do anything else, get it in writing and at least make sure that his driver's license matches the name on the registration. Your local DMV (or website) could tell you what any taxes or fees are.
  • The liens have to get paid,either you take over the payments,or don't buy the car unless you have a clear title.When I was in the impound business, we had to hold a car for 30 days, and then have an agent who specialized in the lien process,send letters to all lien holders,also put two ads in the paper, advising everyone that the car would be sold,if no one came forward to pay the charges,we auctioned the car, or truck.The letters have to be registered, and all the info can be had from the DMV printout,make sure the serial numbers match the registration.
  • You, the seller, and the bank have to do a 3 way transaction. When the bank gets all of it's money, they will release the lien. === The tax is on the WHOLE sales price - the money out of your pocket (irrespective of the lien). Good Luck...
  • i do no longer motor vehicle what all people says, even while identifying to purchase from a broker (different than for that ridiculous 'certification' application which DOES garuntees a stable-working motor vehicle-albeit for a plenty bigger cost) there is not any garuntee that the motor vehicle could have had artwork achieved on it that it desires. In different words, the old adage "shopper beware" nonetheless applies. the only venture i be conscious of for a actuality is that non-public occasion sale is many times extra artwork for you, however the advantages is many times a miles extra effective cost than a broker grants. in spite of if a broker grants a extra advantageous that standard commerce in fee, they many times make it lower back on the bloated cost of your 'new' motor vehicle or the bloated financing equipment that they provide. you could desire to anticipate that the margin on your new motor vehicle is going to be hundreds better than e book fee, because of the fact autos offered as commerce-ins or from auctions can tend to be offered for below they're well worth. In different words, you particularly won't be able to win. the excellent venture to do is sell your motor vehicle privately, or in case you % to commerce, save your commerce out of negotiations till you have gotten a clever cost for the motor vehicle you % to purchase. tell the broker you're advertising privately till you have all the small print settled, and then grant your commerce. remember, the broker is going to make funds on the motor vehicle they sell to you, and then they are going to make funds on the motor vehicle you traded. the excellent you could shoot for is a few style of fairness. Take it from me, my 9,000 greenback used Accord has been given over 3 thousand in maintenance, and that i see used autos on the lot universal with sparkling tires, yet waiting for exahust, brake, and different artwork in all probability to be necessary in a three hundred and sixty 5 days or so.
  • Yes, it seems so. I was the advisor for my son's private K - 8 in the LA area and we donated used books to a public school near us. We have also donated other items, like new instruments and athletic equipment. There are websites where teachers ask for donations of specific items, or you can speak to your student advisor, tell them what schools you want to help out and ask if they or you should approach that school's principal. I'm sure the principal would be very grateful! Good luck with your project.
  • I donate to a particular class room so since they accept my donations I would think they would accept yours. However, call the board of education in your area and ask.
  • the spectacular answer is for government to sell those lands via fact the shape would not record that use between the "forts and docks......and so on" authorized Federal land holdings. If California needs to purchase them, high-quality. If no longer, that's the open marketplace. If the federal government bought off each and every of the lands that's not authorized to hold interior the 1st place, we would desire to have yet another wild west, there is lots of it.
  • No law prohibits it. I often donate computers and such things.
  • I can only answer for my state, California. They're free and you can file online. All the best.
  • you're a state resident once you recieve a state driving force's license. try this as quickly as a possibility. Even in the previous the pass if a possibility. you will possibly desire to coach for help at leat 6-twelve months basically before time and not on the final minute. For nutrients finances $5 an afternoon in case you consume groceries and not quickly nutrients. Marriage shouldn't take place without significant funds reserve. the college has a counselor who can enable you to fill out varieties.
  • Well I also am from the So-Cal area and Ihave found a wonderful place on the beach to get married at and have the reception there! All packaged deal and everything in included (coordinator, tables, chairs, leins, grooms room, hotels suite for the night and that will be my dressing room, food,dishes, private bathrooms, private beach, etc..)you get the idea. For about $10,000 for 120 guest. I am having silk flowers done by a florist called Foreverflowers.com. I will get to see all my flowers 30 days before and they come and set everthing up and take it all down! When I return home from the honeymoon I can pick them up and they last a life time! I am going to have 2 photographers, & 2 viedo guys all 8 hours, unlimited pic, my book 2 parents books, 200 print outs 5 x7 , 4 8x10 and one 16x20 framed of my choice, all my negatives are mine and I can print out as many as like!! all my footage on one dvd and an 20min dvd of the wedding (so you can show friends and family without gettting board) all for $3,500.00 at www.celebrationphotography.net contact katie at Katie@celebrationphotography.net She is wonderful! I am makeing simple centerpices (glass hurricane from micheals I use there 40% and 50% to buy them) (Orientaltradeing.com) I have bougth sea shells, starfish, sandollars!

  • keep it small and simple, close friends and relatives only. Rent everything, perhaps a small tent or pavillion to be put over the food table. Have a buffet starring Aunt Martha's award winning Swedish Meatballs, and Uncle Bob's Lip Smacking Ribs. Have beautiful cupcakes made instead of a wedding cake. Throw it in your backyard, or your parents' backyard as appropriate, or even see if you can rent a space in a nearby city park. There is so much you can do to save money. Theme weddings are big now. You could do a vintage wedding, and get your wedding clothes at consignment or vintage shops saving hundreds of dollars. Make it your own. Have fun with it! Create a wonderful experience, one that will have everyone talking about it for years to come, including the two of you. Oh! one more thing........my son and his wife did this....... Put disposable cameras somewhere so that anyone who wants to take pictures can, on the agreement that they will hand the cameras back to you for developing. Wella! your wedding pics!
  • Friday nights are cheaper for some locations. Like the other person said, cut out the useless stuff. We didn't even have favors and people didn't say anything. Photographers are overrated. See if a local college has advanced photography classes and offer it to a top student - have them take digital and develop on your own. Beer and wine only saves money. We offered liquor, but they had to pay for it. If Friday is out have the wedding around 2:00 so its after lunch and before dinner - you don't need either!
  • I got married in Costa Mesa, and I had an outside reception at the Ayres Country Inn off the 73 in Costa Mesa/Newport Beach Border (the ceremony was in a church) They weren't cheap, but a lot cheaper than a beachside hotel. Make sure if you have a complementary honeymoon room if you choose a hotel for your reception. Anyways... a beach setting is always nice.... Here's a couple of vendors that I used: For a dj, I used Mike Carcano in Laguna Niguel. Whoever you choose, it is really important to work closely with your band leader or dj. You have no idea how much the dj runs the show for you, they help you get the guests to their seats for dinner, they tell the guests when the cake is being cut, and time for the dances. Mike was great with all that and didn't step on my wedding coordinator's toes. Videographer was Glass Eye Productions. They did a beautiful job and synced our video with our favorite music I won't recommend my photographer, he sucked. for flowers, I went to Vissar's florist & greenhouse in Anaheim. they were much cheaper than a boutique florist and I got a beautiful bouquet of fresh summer flowers. I chose pink gerber daises, pink carnations, white rose buds and blue delphinium (which is what the guys wore on their boutaniers). Unless you have a set flower bouquet in mind like roses or lillies etc., sometimes seasonal flowers can help reduce cost. For a honeymoon, we went to Sandals in Jamaica. A all-inclusive package can help you from over spending on tips. We chose an ocean view room, but looking back on it, we could have saved thousands of dollars by getting a garden room because we were in the pool the whole time anyways.
  • OK. You didn't give a budget but I did my wedding in Leguna Beach, Ca. The venue - The Leguna Hotel - great deal - unbelievable - great manager - have indoor and/or outdoor - had sit down dinner - served by hotel - hired our own DJ - ordered live flowers orchids wholesale - chose cliffs above Leguna in park to get married and hired the Leguna English style bus to take everyone back and forth from hotel. One brides room included. It was a wonderful time. Including wedding dress.....under 10,000......and it was all waterfront venue. Everyone said it was impossible but it was very possible to have a beautiful wedding for a reasonable price. By the way...I designed my own invitations and had them printed for me.....at a real print shop...they were much cheaper and looked great. Don't get ripped off by a wedding planner....big mistake.
  • Being in So Cal you have many, many options for vendors. If you're on a budget look for the smaller independent stores for your needs. A good place to go would be the Fashion District in downtown L.A. There is lot of bridal shops there where you could get bridesmaids dresses, centerpieces, etc. Shop around there is a lot out there.
  • Depending on size of your wedding, you can always consider the County's botanical gardens or parks. They are low cost, and sometimes free. Try the Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge or the Arboretum in Arcadia (that is, if you live in the Los Angeles area).
  • dont waste $$ on crap that you wont care about and no one (except maybe your mom) will remember. trust me - i regret so much spending tons of $$ on stuff that i thought i just couldnt do without. my wedding bugdet was $12,000 (i went over by $3,000) i.e. - favors that cost anything more than $1 per person (seriously no one will care) elaborate centerpieces linens that match the bridesmaid dresses save the date cards exotic flowers an elaborate wedding cake stay away from those bridal magazines!!! they are poison!! what your guest will care about most is the quality of the food, booze and dancing. the rest will take care of itself.

  • So i live in toronto but i want to go to usc because i wanna become a movie director and obviously it's easier to find work there than in t.o. so i was just wondering how much it would cost? just like an estimate? because i know you have to pay for SAT prep, and the SATs as well? and whatever else as well. please help :)
  • Every school will be different. There will be a difference to between public schools and private schools. I'd suggest picking out a few schools and look up out of state tuition. I believe in state tuition is pretty cheap in CA. You may want to move down there and work a year to establish residency. Then apply for college.
  • USC is a private school, so it does not matter that you are out of state, the tuition is the same. You would not be eligible as a non US citizen for US government help so you would have to pay it all yourself. The last I heard it cost $40,000 per year to go to USC. Just because you go there it does not mean that you will automatically become a movie director. It takes many long years of work in the industry before you can direct a movie. Except, of course, if you have the money to make the movie yourself, then you can direct it.
  • Donald is correct. Probably 40,000 US dollars per year x 4 years = about 150-160,000 US dollars. I would seriously rethink your statement about it being easier to find film work in LA than Toronto. The idea of going to Cali and being rich is a myth. It has HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT - literally millions of people out of work, and high cost of living, and no safety net. Further, tens of thousands of people work in the porn industry out of last resort. Poor women/girls with a dream come from all of the world move to LA because they are good actresses, dancers or want to study the arts. Instead they end up as porn stars, prostitutes, drug addicts and strippers.
  • Just because you send power to the grid doesn't mean you get paid for it. PG&E puts your kWh in a "bank", so to speak, so that when you draw from the grid (when your solar is not working) you draw from the kwh you "stored" up. At the end of the year PG&E zero's the meter and you start over. I'm not sure what you mean by laws. It is legal to have solar and wind, although you can probably scratch coal generation systems. You are limited by the physical space of your land for wind turbines and the PV array, as well as roof space for your PV. In California, The Solar Rights Act of 1978 (and it’s various amendments over the years) states that “Any covenant, restriction, or condition contained in any deed, contract, security instrument, or other instrument affecting the transfer or sale of, or any interest in, real property that effectively prohibits or restricts the installation or use of a solar energy system is void and unenforceable.” This doesn't mean the HOA don't have the ability to impost certain restrictions.
  • That will depend on the local laws and deed restrictions of the exact location. But in a California you can pretty much forget coal fired anything. If you supply electricity to the grid, you will get paid for it.
  • No. You can remail private. The largest private company in the US is Cargill, with about $70 billion in sales. They've been in business for almost 150 years. Mars (the candy company) is private, with sales of about $20 billion.
  • I am wondering if anyone knows the process of adoption if the baby is in Washington state and I live in California? There is a 3 month old baby girl that was taken from her mother by CPS at birth and has been in foster care. The father is not willing to take the baby, but he is being forced to pay child support so he wants to have the baby adopted as quickly as possible, but I have no idea how long it will take, how much it will cost, what I have to do, etc. etc etc. Has anyone in california adopted from Washington? I have a good job and all, but I am not rich by any means so I don't want to get started in this if it is going to cost a ton of money. If that is the case I would rather her go to someone else that can afford to pay for a baby than get attached to her and not be able to get her.
  • If the baby is in foster care and the baby is three months old the mother has to agree to the adoption unless the judge has deemed the mother unfit period, which usually doesn't occur in three months of time. You would have to find more information on the situation. If the mother is willing to allow you to adopt the baby personally then the process is easy and inexpensive. On the other hand if she does not then it could be a rather messy expenditure.
  • Is it against the law to share family law documents or criminal case documents with people who have nothing to do with the case? Are child support orders, custody agreements, and parental restraining orders private documents or public records? What about criminal court files? I'm not talking about case info you can look up on the internet, but the actual hard copies for the court proceedings of a criminal case. If someone were to show my court documents to people (not lawyers or law enforcement, but their friends) is there anything I can do about it?
  • I have a copy of the family court case file of Marcia Clark when she file for a divorce from Gordon Clark during the OJ Simpson trial. Gordon Clark was a stay at home dad, working from home as a architect. She felt that him not having an advance decree and working for a large corporation was demeaning to the children, so she file for divorce, custody, and child support plus the cost of nannies to care for the children during how 100+ hour work weeks. In February of 1994, she filed for an increase in the child support stating that she needed the money due to the cost of hair care, makeup, clothes, and shoes needed to appear on TV during the trial. She earned $150,000 a year to his $40,000.
  • this is a private college as a result that is their determination. the sorrowful actuality is that some mothers and dads do no longer want their teenagers around GLBT people. If it have been a public college it may be unconstitutional.
  • Normally, only files involving minors are sealed. All others are a matter of public record.
  • Court records are all public record unless specifically sealed.
  • if you don't have the money & financial aid doesn't help much, you can always do student loans.
  • Private schools are very expensive than public schools. The education is incredibly better though and yes many private schools offer financial aid.
  • Private school is really expensive. I'd like public school better.Get more friends.^_^

  • Title signed by previous owner, your driver's license, bill of sale, smog certificate, insurance card, lots of money.
  • If the vehicle has a Salvaged Title, that means that the vehicle was Totaled by an Insurance Company and that someone bought it at auction and rebuilt it, and then applied for a Title. The DMV will only issue a Title which clearly indicates Salvaged on It. A vehicle with a Salvaged Title is not worth the value of one that has not been Salvaged. The Salvage Stays on the Title Forever, it cannot be removed. You will need a Lien Free Title signed by the current owner, a Smog Certificat. The law requires that the Seller has had it smogged, or he cannot legally Sell it at all. It is his responsibility to have done it within the last 90 days. Proof of Insurance, a Bill of Sale, and enough money to pay the Registration Fees and the Sales Tax. Here is the Statement from the Calif DMV Site about the Smog: The seller is required to obtain smog certification when transferring ownership of a vehicle UNLESS certification was obtained within the last 90 days. You can go to the DMV site and look up all the information you need about Transfering Title. Also be sure to check the Title. If it has two names on it, and says "OR" between the names,Either person can sign it to sell it. If it has two names on it and it says "AND", then you must have both people that are named on it sign it. Also, when you purchase it, you must transfer the Ownership Within 10 days from the Date of Purchase.
  • You not only need to be licensed, you need to be bonded and have malpractice insurance. Cheating spouse work won't pay your rent in CA, because it is a no fault divorce state, and a community property state. The big money for PI's in CA is in documenting Worker's Comp. fraud cases.
  • Certainly, But I doubt if your evidence will stand up in court. Some body might take offense to being stalked and have you arrested for harassment, If you go on privet property that's trespassing. Then again someone could just beat the s--t out of you or shoot you and claim that they thought you were an intruder. Try explaining that to the cop's. You would more than likely be arrested for stalking and harassment. you could be charged with several thing's ,two of which are felony's. If you tell the authorities what you were doing, That's operating without a license,one more charge.The risk's are not worth the outcome. I would suggest you work for a P.I. for two years then go out on your own.
  • No, you cannot do PI work without a state license.
  • No, You definitely need a State of California License or you could be charged with stalking.
  • no, but you can work under a licensed pi
  • As long as you don't get caught.
  • A private sale is assumed to be as is, absent a written agreement to the contrary. The buyer can ask for anything, but the repair costs are totally his problem. If he continues to bother you, you can file suit against him for harassment!!
  • The buyer is out of luck. The car was sold "as is", as all used cars are. Unless the title carries a salvage brand, and you failed to disclose that, there is nothing for the buyer to complain about. If the transmission had previous problems, that you tried to correct incorrectly, it still would be up to the buyer to recognize that when they test drove the car, and they had the option to not purchase the car. Buyer beware...........done deal!
  • As long as you didn't falsely represent anything you're safe. If you made any false statements or did anything to conceal defects you could be in trouble. Even if you say "as is" and it can be proved you did some quick Micky Mouse repairs to hide a previously known condition you'll still liable. Say you silenced a noisy gear box by pumping it full of STP that'll get you in trouble. If you knew it was on it's last legs but just repaired the leaks and cleaned it up, you're OK. If deliberate deception on your part can be proven you're toast.
  • As a general rule private sales are usually "as is", the buyer has no recourse, it sounds like they probably didn't even take it to a mechanic.
  • Was the buyer family ? good friend? The best you can do is figure out how it happened. If you can be sure it happended out of the blue. maybe offer to pay a third (if relative)
  • a sale is a sale no turning back, it doesnt matter if it completely blew up, once you sell that car its his/her problem if he wants his money back take it to court
  • There is discussion from Las Vegas to Victorville. And then to Diseny. But it appears to have just stopped with no new comment. They wanted mag originally, then the other option was put on the table for just train service. There is federal stimulus money for the project. There was some aadvertising and hearings in late 2008 or earlier this year. Then in recent days mag lev advertising appeared on local Las VEgas TV> BUt there is just no real action to speak of at this time.
  • I doubt it but I have no inside knowledge, I would hope not. There is no profit in building a maglev except to the contractors. If it is done it would have to be mostly subsidized by the government and for a fractionof that money to build a maglev they could build a dedicated high speed conventional rail system.
  • The Government has already DUMPED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS into that project.. and you can SEE THEM FOR YOURSELF at the MUSEUM of Mag-Lev which is located at the AIRPORT in PUEBLO, COLORADO... it's near the TEST TRACK and RESEARCH FACILITY where all that research was done.. BACK IN THE 1960'S.. or do you KNOW that the Government has already built all the mag-lev trains it plans to build.. let alone giving grants to some company in California.
  • There was some company talking about it. See the wikipedia article, it will tell you which company.
  • Since "private" colleges don't receive state subsidies, there is no such thing as "out of state tuition." You need to be more concerned about the room-and-board costs of going to college away from home.
  • 1. If so, where are you located? 2. How many clients are week are you seeing? 3. Are you on insurance panels? 4. Has your income decreased in the past few years? I'm an LMSW in Michigan and we're all struggling to pay our bills due to bad economic conditions in the state, people losing health insurance, etc. How are you doing?
  • Things have been better. Thank God everyone in Los Angeles, California is crazy. I have been having a time with the insurance companies. Many don't want to take on any new carriers. I have only been private for about three years. Still working on a client base. Some friends that have established clients are still doing very well.
  • I was wondering what are the rules on camping in northern california(specifically santa cruz mountains area) and having a campfire. Can you just set up camp anywhere in the wilderness and camp out or do you need a permit. If so Where are some good spots in the santa cruz area to camp, and if you can't camp anywhere what are some campgrounds that don't charge money and don't need reservations?
  • With the exception of a couple of small state parks, the Santa Cruz Mountains are almost totally private property. Certainly don't believe there is any designated wilderness areas. Also folks in the Santa Cruz Mts. get very nervous when they see smoke, fire restrictions are in effect all across Northern California currently due to the drought like conditions. If you want to try dispersed camping, you're best bet is to head east to the Sierra Nevada Mountains to any National Forest. The only campground in the Santa Cruz area that is free and doesn't require reservations is where ever the homeless camp currently is. To find that just go downtown to the mall and ask one of the members of the lunatic fringe wandering around there.
  • the closest place you can camp for free is in the Los Padres national forest they allow free dispersed camping, some area's as in wilderness you need the permit as well it is free also. As for fires as Casey pointed out to you summer fire restrictions prevent it, you can bring a back packing stove and use that.
  • Gold Bluff coastline is sturdy. yet another superb campground interior the redwood u . s . is Jedediah Smith State Park. The campground is sturdy alongside the Smith River. around the river is the Stout Grove of redwoods.
  • Me and my best friend have been trying to find our friend Dora for the longest. She was the one who brought us together but when she moved she Mexico we lost complete contact with her. She gave us her phone number but it didn't work when we tried calling then last time we heard from her she calling from a pay phone. We really want to get into contact with her again she just turned legal the big 18. So its been 4-5 without contact with her. We really want to find her please help us.
  • private investigator.com, or go to a law firm and get all info from a lawyer thats your best bet because you do not want to waist time or money
  • Hang on while I make some calls to find out. I'm kind of busy, though, so you might want to do it yourself to save some money.
  • You can't get it back even if you do take him to court... You left him that deposit as a promise to buy the car. If you back out, you lost it.
  • If you buy a car from a private individual caveat emptor applies - buyer beware. It is your responsibility to perform mechanical and background checks on the car before completing the sale. If you took all reasonable precautions but it turns out the seller lied to you then you will need to have the car inspected by a professional body immediately, such as Dekra, so that you have an independent certificate of the vehicle's condition, then you will need to pursue the case through the small claims court. EDIT: I think you've misunderstood the advice given on the CAB website. Caveat emptor is alive and kicking. Go and speak to a CAB advisor if you still don't accept it. Provided a vehicle has a current MOT certificate it is considered, unless the certificate is revoked by the Police, roadworthy. In addition, proving that a vehicle is 'not as described' is notoriously difficult to do, unless you have evidence in the form of an advert clearly stating the condition of the item you are claiming is defective. The situation is made even worse if you have been using the car. As soon as you start using the vehicle you will find it next to impossible to make a seccessful claim as the original owner can claim in a lot of cases that the damage was caused post-sale.
  • You may have an enforceable verbal contract. By giving him the money, he was obligated to not sell the car to anyone else at that point; he may have turned away other buyers. He could require you to complete the deal. About the only thing you can do is ask him to work with you on this. Ask him if he will reimburse you the $300 once he sells the car to someone else, if he makes as much or more as what you were buying it for. He should agree to that, as he should not be enriched by this. I think that's all you can hope for.
  • I am asking a question regarding the private sale of a vehicle. I am merely asking this because I would like to have this knowledge for future references. I have noticed a lot of people on Craigslist sell vehicles for pretty cheap, but then they come out and tell you that there's tons of back-fees that need to be paid off. I'm pretty sure I just saw an ad that said there was 4 - 5 months of back-fees due! So my question is, what can the buyer do about the back-fees? Is the buyer completely screwed and forced to cough up the money? Can there be some type of payment plan to help pay off the back-fees along with paying for your new tags? I looked on Google for this type of information but I guess I wasn't specific enough, so maybe someone here can be kind enough to help me out! Again, I am not in this situation, however I would like to know what my choices are and what to do in the future if I ever do become stuck in this situation. Thank you!
  • Back fees occur when the idiot who owns the car doesn't take the time to get himself a Non-Op, or Certificate of Non Operation, which would have saved him hundreds of dollars for a mere tiny fee. But if someone lets his registration lapse, and doesn't get a Non-Op, then he owes those "use fees" to the state. And if you buy the car and it has back fees, YOU owe the fees to the state, and no, ,there's no lay away plan. The best way to avoid all this is ask to see the current registration. If it's up to date, or there's a Non-Op at hand, then there's no problem.
  • you will get a tax ruin as quickly as you sell privately, you in user-friendly terms ought to cope alongside with your self with the DMV. as quickly as you sell your motorcar, you're waiting to be giving a bill of sale to the shopper and protecting a reproduction for your self that exhibits the 12 months, make, form, vin form, shopper's call, seller's call, purchase fee and date.

  • None. A "certificate" in private investigating would be worthless. Do you know what private investigators do? Most of their cases involve following a husband around to see if he's cheating on his wife. Usually that means sitting for hours in a parked car somewhere hungry, thirsty, bored, and needing to go to the bathroom. Also, it is very hard to get paid for doing that as the wife doesn't have the money to pay you. You would end up getting paid minimum wage or less. If you think being a p.i. is any fun or you make a lot of money, you've been watching too much TV. Real life is nothing like you see on TV.
  • i'm uncertain if a P.I. might desire to get carry of an definitely delivery certificates however the different records is fantastically elementary to get with or and not using a P.I. To get the ideal answer you could desire to look interior the yellow pages and phone up a P.I. and merely ask.
  • I'm 20 years old and I'm trying to decide where to transfer. All in all, I'm receiving 14,500 in grants and FASFA without any loans. And what's left to pay for school is still 10,000 for the year. I don't want to get into debt. Do you think this is a good offer from a Private school? How does this compare to others grants and scholarships? Please let me know! Thank you so much!
  • I'm not are in this category, but that amount is usually how much average people get for school (about 15000$) and if you need to pay an extra 10 then that's a high class education. But I'm only thinking Stanford or Berkley in California, even there it's a little more at 35000$ Those are prestigious. Ivy league must cost alot more though, not sure.
  • It depends where you teach...I believe you generally get more if you teach in a city rather than a small town. Also, if you teach in a regular public school you're likely to get more than if you teach in a private or charter school. A first year teacher makes anything from about $30,000 - $38,000. If you get into a really affluent district and stay there, you can make as much as $90,000 a year. Most commonly though, I think salaries usually top out around $70,000.
  • In San Diego, $3,200 per month.
  • In this order according to the graduate school rankings in US News.: Cal-Berkeley UCLA UCSD [San Diego] UCD [Davis] UCI [Irvine] UCSB [Santa Barbara] Personally, I think that UCI is probably a very strong #3 at the undergraduate level.
  • ucla
  • Cal Tech and Stanford are the only engineering schools in California for which it is worth paying private school tuition. None of the public engineering colleges, although many are excellent, is worth the high cost of out of state tuition for undergraduate school. A top public university in your state is fine for undergraduate work in engineering so long as the major is offered, which it is, except posssibly in a few states with very low population, in which case you should check to see if your state has arrangements for the payment of in state tuition at a public university in another state. Save your money for graduate school.
  • Check out UC Berkeley and Cal Tech... goood, goooood engineering stuff.
  • Information is below.
  • 1. No degrees seem to have been prescribed for entrepreneurs to qualify them to found a corporation, including multinational corporations and a private military companies. The entrepreneurs hire professionals and qualified staff to run their organisations. 2. However, all big businesses are run with others money: either as share holders or as lenders. Before giving their money, the owners of money will certainly look into the abilities and track record of the entrepreneurs. .
  • It depends on what part of California you live in and whether you are a FF or work for a private ambulance. FFs make great money and have excellent benefits.
  • EMS belongs to the Fire Department. If you don't like it find another job or MOVE to New Jersey.
  • Nope, paramedics are woefully underpaid, which is a shame because they're usually one of the first lifesavers on site.
  • I'm applying to a private school. I know if I were black or Hispanic, I'd have a higher chance, but I'm Pacific Islander. On the application, they have a separate space for Pacific Islanders apart from Asians, but on the demographic information, they say that aside from Caucasian, the biggest percentage of people who attend are "Asian/Pacific Islander". I don't identify as Asian, but I am Pacific Islander and I don't know if this is good and puts me on minority status, or if I am a majority.
  • People overemphasize the importance of any of this in admissions. Your chances wouldn't be much higher if you were Black or Hispanic, and they won't be much lower if you are Pacific Islander or Caucasian or Asian. Being male could help you more than being Black or Hispanic at many schools right now, and being female could disadvantage you. It just isn't worth worrying about, because the differences are minor, and only affect those on the edges. Schools do need to have this information, especially for financial aid purposes, because there are some scholarships which specify exactly to whom the money must be given. In some cases, this may include you, in others not. In terms of being from California, you might have had a greater chance if you were from Nebraska, but if you aren't, there isn't anything you can do about it. Again, it just isn't worth worrying about.
  • They claim none of this affects your chances, but we all know they want more hispanics and blacks and less asians so that there's more diversity. If they really mean what they say, then you should be fine.
  • at that price you are thinking to spend on a car it would be better buying it from a dealer,, yeah it might be more expensive but atleast you have got a warranty with it, buying a car from a private seller, it might be smashed repairable or the engine could seize up after 2k miles and that will cost you small fortune to repair and what happens after a few weeks you dont like it,, you cant take it back to the private sellar and ask for your money back, with a dealer he could take it back and offer you another car instead
  • I've never actually priced Honda Civics, but my guess would be around 12,000. KBB could probably give you a more accurate estimate.
  • This is a letter I sent to the Gov. of CA. Please do likewise! Dear Governor Schwarzenegger, Thank you for the reply to my previous letter concerning the judges' ruling about home-schooling in the State of California. I realize after reading it that I neglected a very important point. The Long family! It is important to me and to all home-school parents across the country that this family's rights should be restored. The court ruling took away their right to enroll their children in the private school program of which they are affiliated. And it denies them the proper choice in raising their children according to their parental choices. Please do whatever is possible to make this family whole again by empowering them to be able to train their children and teach them again in their own home. Thank you very much for your time. Barbara Besaw, SACHSNews editor
  • I support your decision for not wanting homeschooling kids to attend some kind of public/private school. There are alot of important answers why children homeschool. Some live in dangerous neighborhoods because they do not have alot of money. And their parents do not want them to be involved in the neighborhood violence. Various websites are talking about the new rule. Sorry about the homeschooling problem, if it becomes illegal then it will affect hundreds of thousands of homeschoolers.
  • Hi Barb :) I will gladly send a letter to the Governor as should other parents too! Since CA has this ripple affect on the rest of the country than we most certainly should stand up and support the issue and the family that is being treated unfairly. Just because there "might" be abuse in the home, doesn't mean that the child services there in CA isn't able to do their job and handle the situation even with them being out of the public school system!!!!!
  • evaluate getting the e book "The nicely-Adjusted toddler: The Social reward of Homeschooling" via Rachel Gathercole for apprehensive family individuals to make sure. Socialization relatively should not be a controversy. Which individuals of the family individuals are not helping you? in case you and your companion are in settlement, you do what you have desperate is suitable. family individuals will consistently put in their dissenting perspectives in case you enable them to, yet once you're sparkling which you have have been given made your decision and have concept it out for sure, they could pass away you on my own. in my view, we've been apprehensive approximately family individuals who weren't extremely joyful with the assumption of homeschooling. So, till now all of us started formally homeschooling (while the toddlers have been too youthful for college), all of us started making a family individuals e book that we'd deliver out 3 or 4 situations a twelve months. we'd comprise a lot of coaching on what the toddlers have been getting to understand, issues that they have got been doing with different young toddlers, field journeys we've been taking place, etc. and occasional notes on issues from the information approximately close by faculties or notes approximately articles on the super factors of homeschooling. We considered it our way of instructing the family individuals on what we've been doing, of allaying their fears that the toddlers have been being educationally overlooked, and of coaching them somewhat approximately homeschooling. It worked extremely nicely. additionally, attempt sending family individuals occasional worksheets or papers that the toddlers have achieved. in spite of in case you infrequently do worksheets, doing one each and every now and then will reassure them that the toddlers can do "regularly occurring college artwork" and seeing the point of artwork that they are doing frequently calms any fears that they have got. Or make a videotape of them doing classes and engaging in getting to understand activites and deliver it to family individuals. the toddlers will likely love showing off what they are able to do and it will help delicate issues over.
  • Do you really want the HS movement to be seen supporting parents who abuse their children? OK, so we don't know they're guilty, but we don't know they're innocent either. Argue the HS issue by all means but I would be very, very careful about automatically jumping to their defence just because they HS. If you personally know them and believe they are innocent then by all means fight for them, but otherwise, well just think how this could play out. 20 years of abuse claims? Not good PR for HS.
  • Thanks NJRoadie. I appreciate getting another point-of-view, especially one outside of fear. Does anyone have any news articles in reference to the oldest child's claims of abuse? I support homeschooling (after all, I do homeschool) but I am concerned about the claims of child abuse. Edit: I found the actual court papers, 20 years of abuse claims http://209.85.173.104/search?q=cache:-gf...

  • I bought a dog off a website from a private owner who seemed really nice and even gave his address for me to pick up the puppy. Originally this puppy was for my sister. But two weeks with the puppy I had to be realistic because I ended up taking care of the puppy and getting laid off from work. (I have my own puppy to take care of as well). The puppy needed the second set of shots which I was planning to do that following week. But it turned out someone wanted the dog first, so I let the buyer know that she needs to get a second set of shots. The buyer only paid me $120 for the puppy. I paid $250. I was happy that I rehome the puppy to a good home. But a week later I got a phone call from the buyer yelling to me that the dog was sick (internally) and that she had to pay huge vet bills. I offered her money back for the puppy but I have no money for the vet bill which cost alot. However, when the puppy was with me he had no signs of sickness, he was very playful and friendly. I'm really sad that my puppy is sick and now scared for him. But I'm also freaking out because the new family are telling me that I was at fault. I even called the guy I originally got the puppy from and am waiting for him to call back. I am concerned if they really try to pursue me, what are my legal dog rights as a one time private owner dog seller? and what are their rights as a buyer? Thanks.
  • You should NOT call the breeder you got it from and sue her. That's ridiculous. The puppy obviously didn't get sick because of the breeder. Getting the shots was your responsibility. However, when you gave the pup to the current owner and made a verbal agreement, that was a very bad idea. I'm sure it seemed innocent enough at the time and your intentions are obviously good, but that's the exact type of thing that ends up in court. It's a classic "he said, she said" issue. She could definitely prosecute, but hopefully it wouldn't stand up in court because there is no proof that it's your "fault." You weren't negligent and you did inform her, but she can claim anything she wants. Hopefully, she's just angry at you because her puppy got sick, and she'll forget about it when he gets better. Next time you do anything like this, everything needs to be on paper in a signed contract even if it's your best friend, but DEFINITELY if it's a stranger. Best of luck though!
  • You say the other family is saying you are at fault. Why are they saying you are at fault? How/why is the puppy sick? Lots of important questions to ask. Odds are, you don't owe them anything.
  • i don't know sorry...but i would think that you should call the breeder you got it from and "SEW" her!! that is very legal..!?!
  • As an armed guard someone has to have insurance in-case you make a mistake and someone gets killed or injured, if not you then the company you're working for. Also most states have some form of professional regulation for licensing armed guards, nurses, doctors, etc.
  • I am budgeting myself to save up for my first car, but I would like to keep in mind any extra costs that would come along with that. The car I have in mind costs about $6,000 to $7,000 and would be a relatively new car, from year 2003 to 2005. Please list the types of any extra costs that could be included, such as registration fees, along with an estimate of what they would cost. It doesn't need to be completely accurate, but I just want an idea of how much I need to save up. I live in California and do not plan to buy from a dealer, but a private party seller only. Thank you!
  • Buying from a private party will save you money, not cost you more. Dealers add all those extras into their final price, so you're paying for that anyway. Yes, of course you'll have to pay for the license and registration, insurance and any repairs that may be needed to get it through the inspection, and probably sales tax, too. That's just how it is, so budget another $600-$800 for all those extras that get added on by the state to any car sale. Make sure the tires are good and everything works so you won't have to pay to fix problems right away. Check out www.kbb.com or www.nada.com for values of particular cars you're interested in. Good luck!
  • well ? the cost of reg of course , that you can find on the CA website. then Calif will charge you sales tax. if you tell them you paid 3000 they will tax you less than if you tell them you paid 7000 new tires if you buy one with worn tires $400 have a mechanic inspect it before you buy it $65 and then car insuance costs. you can look on line at ins companies like geico and and put your info in and see how much your ins will be. also if you google " edmunds.com" you can find reviews , mpg, and $ values of used cars. dont use kelly blue book,, there price estimate are always too high.
  • There is no requirement of any kind that mandates a private business must become public. Good Luck, Dana B.
  • As I'm sure almost everyone knows, from a fiscal prospective, California is on the road to nowhere. With the current budget and tax rates, the state is heading for a recession itself. If you were Governor, what would you do to fix the problem? I personally would lower tax rates on business and individuals, encourage more private sector jobs and stop the unions from being so powerful. They basically control the state government. In the state, if you make over $100,000 more than half goes to the government (State, Local, and Federal) in taxes. It is really a shame. Wouldn't it be nice to have a little more money in your pocket to take that vacation or buy that new car or home. Tell me what you think. No mean, nasty answers will be accepted. I will ignore them.
  • It's a good question John, and my answer is: I feel there is too many idiots in California its a lost cause. Hope you find the answer you're looking for John!
  • Jerry Brown has done a great job of chasing one business after another out of the state . Rumor is that " Silicone Valley " will be vacating to Texas or Arizona next . Seems like the only people that aren't leaving are the 1/3 of the country's welfare recipients . It might be wise to beg and plead with business not to leave so there is someone left to tax.
  • There are two primary voter blocks in CA. Minorities and unions. Neither which is concerned with public sector debt which causes libs in office ( local, county & state ) to raise taxes & fees anywhere they can and that hammers the average CA employee and consumer. Then the liberal votes. The results have and will continue to be the items in your post. I don't blame the insane liberal politicians. I blame the voters. They are the ones who elect those who all but destroy the economy of CA or any other state up to and including the nation for that matter.
  • Following the path set out by Governor Brown in his recent "State of the State" address, which was well received in the business community and by the GOP and obviously does NOT lead "nowhere," would be a good start. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/24...http://www.fresnobee.com/2013/01/24/3146...BTW, you have to learn what constitutes taxable income, and the difference between marginal and effective tax rates,. It is simply not true that a person earning $100,000 would owe $50,000 in taxes.
  • Seriously? Given that states history and demographic make up short of a earthquake droppn ca. Into the ocean my only other idea would be to turn it into a military base or hunting club.

  • Taxes are the price we pay to maintain our infrastructure. If you do not wish to enjoy the benefits of the civil society and civic infrastructures that we've built for one another, or wish to freeload on said services while NOT paying taxes, then move somewhere else.
  • actuality: the city of San Diego (which includes maximum folk of the inhabitants of the County of San Diego) has extra registered Democrat electorate than Republicans. The suburbs - extremely to the north (and extra area of Orange County), are extra conservative.
  • Simple. Deport everyone from the state. Nothing else will work.
  • Make the 'sp^cs go dig for gold for minimum wage until they find enough gold to support their miserable brown life.
  • It's impossible to do without causing mass riots because one would have to end all the handouts - to illegal aliens, minorities, and unions.

  • The buyer pays sales tax and other fees at the DMV when presenting the bill of sale. This is common throughout the country. Car dealerships are licensed to collect sales tax and other fees. I do not know about the seller and the IRS.
  • There are a few different reasons for wanting to leave southern california including: better promotion opportunities for my husband, the cost of real estate and living is very high here, and we want our children to go to good schools which is not possible where we live now (unless we spend the money for private school). We are considering Indiana, Ohio and Missouri. Is there anyone who lives there or has lived there who can give me some pros and cons of these areas? Thanks!
  • I have lived in Indiana & Illinois & still go there fairly often to visit. If you can handle the humidity then personally I think it's a great place to live. I truly miss it & will eventually move back to the area or to Florida (the water..ahh). Smaller towns are great places to raise kids however there is lack of opportunity (job wise). Cost of living is of course waaaay cheaper & I have found salaries to be comparable to those in major cities therefore affording families more financial stability. If my kids weren't from a split family & I was able to leave & take them with me, I would do it in a blink. Live in a smaller town but not too far from a larger city & have the best of both worlds. It is not for everybody but my advice to you would be to vacation there first & get a sense of the communities & the way of life there, talk to people that live there & see it before just diving in & then regretting it. I have been to southern California for vacations as well as much of the USA & for me.. I'd rather live on the southeast coast , the gulf or the bible belt.
  • I grew up in Ohio and have some fond memories of it (except for winter). The Midwest will be more humid in summer and can get quite cold in the winter with widely varying amounts of snow (more near the Great Lakes). Cost of living will be generally lower, although the larger cities can still be a bit pricey. The climate is enough to keep me from going back.
  • I am from Ca too. I just moved to So. Indiana in January. I can tell you......not just the weather and cost of living, but its the People here that will keep me. I Never want to go back to CA again!!! It is amazing how wonderful everyone is here! And it only snowed 3 times here and melted right away! The coldest it got one day was 19 degrees.......I was NOT used to that, but it wasn't that bad! Oh and this summer has been wonderful! Not over 90......just perfect weather! Now you will find that jobs payscale here is a LOT less. So I just decided to start my Own business! :) And everyone here will help you here if you do..it is such a change from the Busy CA lifestyle. I love it! Hope this helps!
  • interior the southeast tornadoes was once a rarity, final year we set a record of over 800 in one day. Judging from the path of the storms right this moment there's a great opportunity the northeast ought to start up getting tornadoes besides.
  • Yes, you can look for your family tree. It could be through hiring private investigator. However, you should have to prepare enough money for the payment. Or you can seek information about your clan through online. By searching you family tree online, you might find if you have relatives in California or doesn't have. Choose the right people search available online. site: http://www.web-detective.com/index1.aspx
  • All transfer applicants to public California universities must have completed 60 transferable semester units or 90 transferable quarter units, including the required classes, by the June before the start of the fall semester or by a designated date for other semesters or quarters. Out of state students have the lowest priority for transfer admission and students from California community colleges with worse records than the out of state students will be admitted before the out of state students. In fact, there probably will not be room to admit any out of state transfer students. In any event, it is a waste of money to pay out of state undergraduate tuition fees. For private USC you will need at least a 3.5 GPA, but only about a quarter of the transfer applicants are admitted.
  • I agree its not fair. granting public or private financial aid to illegal aliens will force citizens and students who are here legally to compete with them for limited resources. Bottom line is California doesn't have enough money to take care of its obligations to its citizens right now. The people, who if they're lucky enough to have jobs, certainly would like those limited resources to go to their children or grandchildren. They certainly wouldn't want that to go to people who come here illegally.o_O
  • All education should be privatized with NO tax payer theft. Education is NOT a right. For people who believe it is a right. Where does this right come from? As I stated there is No Right. I believe in freedom. With freedom comes choice. Private schools would give parents better choices. Not this one size fits all approach with a ton of waste. If people can only afford to educate one child maybe they would have only one. That's up to them. It is not fair for my neighbor who has decided to have no children to pay to educate mine.
  • I'm surprised that you're surprised by CA, they are a bunch of loons over there, actually on this day in 2008 they banned trans fat in CA

  • sure there is. Open mining 100' from any bridge-no claims permitted. There is open ground on the Yuba too, near Downieville. Up the American on the north fork of the middle fork there is some good ground, you just have to be aware of private claims.Get on I-80 to Foresthill Rd, go through the town of Foresthill to a road on the right #13, go on this a few miles bearing to the left and all that area has gold in the creeks.My biggest nugget from this area is 1oz3.5dwt. I got 450.00 for it many years ago. A whites goldmaster 2 metal detector works well in this area. Another place is steephollow cyn near Dutch Flat. You go to the town and turn up the road next to the post office. This will take you through the old hydraulic diggings. You go through them down and across the dam and up the other side. Turn right at the top and go a couple of miles and you will see a dirt road to your left. Go on this road 'till it ends. You will be looking at steephollow cyn. On the map it is section 20 and is railroad property and cannot be claimed. The biggest nuggets I have seen from here are 2&3 dwt woth one Gold and quartz piece of 4oz.. Do some research and check at Pioneer mining supply in Auburn for a reliable report of where you can safely go and for supplys.Good luck.
  • They can be very expensive, but if you want to go to an Ivy and the counselor knows the right people, using a counselor can be a big help. They know what the people who are going to read your essay would like to see, for example. Before you invest in a counselor, make sure you have the grades, test scores, extra-curricular activities and community service required by the Ivies. Make sure that the counselor belongs to a national organization of private college counselors and has at least a masters degree. Before hiring the counselor, ask how many students the counselor has succeeded in getting into Ivies and how many years of experience the counselor has. You do not need a private counselor for the University of California. BTW, if you have used your best English to write your question, an Ivy is out of the question for you. I'm not saying this to be mean. I'm saying it to save you time, effort, money and anxiety. Good luck.
  • Not worth the time and money. Anything they tell you you could find out on your own.
  • I have a chinese friend that would like to study in southern California but does not have the money for UCLA. Is there any online information or programs one can work with to do this with a different school? In China there are many but they are very expensive and may not have ties to many schools. If anyone has any experience with this any info or advice would be helpful. thank you!
  • All UCs have exchange programs with China. This inlcudes Berkley, UCR, UCSD, UCSB, UCI. He can also check the Cal State schools, which start with CSU.... For example, CSULA, CSUSB Those are the public California school, which are generally much cheaper than private ones.
  • I began my college search six-nine months ago and have ended on my dream, which is to attend college in California. Colleges I'm considering are Occidental, Pepperdine, SCI-Architecture, UC Irvine, UC Davis, U of Redlands, U of the Pacific. ACT 31 composite, SAT 1600-base 1390, SAT 2400-base 2130, GPA based out of a hundred 93, every AP class my school offers, carefully chosen electives, mock trial, lit magazine, tennis. Good essays. Best answer will go to the person offering most complete info! Thanks :-)
  • You are competitive for all. You have a mixture of private and state schools. Since you are out of state you are better off at the private schools. The state schools are so strapped for money that classes and waiting lists for the classes are large and it takes longer than the usual to get a degree. California is very strict as far as residency for tuition purposes so you would have to pay out of state tuition your whole time here.
  • The cheapest way to study art in California at a college with a dormitory is to major in art at a campus of the California State University. You will get much better instruction for much less money (many thousands of dollars less) than at private art colleges, almost all of which are for profit businesses which only care about taking the students' money, not about teaching. Except in graphic design, there are almost no jobs for art graduates in any event.
  • In California, at Kinship Center, we feel it is the organization’s responsibility to give you all the tools necessary to become a great parent to an adoptive child. We will help you to put together a family album which will tell the story of your family with pictures. You can post your profile on our web site and we will provide you with wonderful training in order to parent an adoptive child. Our organization will make your profile and photo album available to a birth mother who requests information on families who would like to adopt her child. You can also work with an attorney who may do the same thing faster as attorneys are allowed to advertise for birth mothers whereas adoption agencies are not.
  • I don't know much about private adoption as it's illegal in the UK. No private adoption doesn't speed the adoption process and no it isn't up to the agencyto search for expectant mothers considering adoption as an option. It's one thing an agency advertising its services but a completely different one for it to be actively searching for expectant mothers considering adoption. The thought of that makes me feel physically sick and it is morally wrong as it's another form of subtle coercion. Just because someone is considering adoption doesn't mean they will go through with it.
  • I genuinely imagine of a few are very shady. That grew to develop into into what grew to develop into me off kin adoption with suggestions from organizations, you purely do not comprehend who you're prepared to believe. I met with some human beings from kin organizations and that i undergo in thoughts being very uncomfortable with them. enormous phoney smiles and various avoidance of questions.
  • I hate the thought that people actually want to buy a child.
  • No democrats destroyed California by giving illegals so many rights and further expanding government to the point where the private sector could no longer support the number of government employees. Thus ending in bankruptcy.
  • That's only one of our state's problems. The more immediate concerns are the massive unfunded public service pension liability that no one seems to want to talk about and the fact that ecology groups are blocking any attempt to formulate a workable water plan. Illegal migration has certainly destroyed the public education systems in many CA cities, but its the state's policies that have allowed that. This is in a state where about 14% of eligible voters vote. It could be argued that we get what we deserve.
  • Yes, and corrupt politicians had a hand in it too. Both of the neighborhoods I grew up in are a total disaster now. There is blight everywhere, hardly anyone speaks English and the crime rate is off the charts. The gangs have taken over so many cities and the cops are even afraid to protect law abiding citizens. Glad I escaped.
  • Despite the blather you hear on Faux News, and the rants of know-nothings on Y!A, as well as the thumbs down this simple statement of fact will get, California has not been destroyed.
  • It's not helping! Budget surpluses because of high taxes. Toyota left with 2,000 jobs and went to Texas.
  • Yes, That's why most of my relatives moved out 15 years ago,
  • Too many cheese eating guidos and not enough cheese makes for a broken down state.
  • No... greed, corrupt politics and politicians - Dem and Rep do more destruction all over America ... but California is far from destroyed ... just a lot of jealous people hate Calif !!!
  • california now has a projected budget surplus

  • So I've been to a few gun shows in California. Yeah, they kind of suck. The private sellers just aren't there much because every gun sale must have a background check, transfer and waiting period completed by a licensed dealer. As a result, you'll usually only see a few licensed dealers there selling their inventory. All the other tables are selling ammo, accessories or other paraphernalia associated with the gun culture crowd, like books, camo clothing, prepper stuff, valuable coins (for when paper money is worthless), knives, etc. I don't find gun prices to be any better than if I went to a gun store. And wow, if you paid $550 for a Ruger 10/22, you got hosed unless you got a really fancy model.
  • Walmart has the cheapest 22lr in AR-15
  • I mean there are so many out there on the web but how do you chose the right one,do they ask why you want info about someone? and only accept certain cases like spouse cheating or something,i see online there are agency's who are on lists for complaints by clients for selling there information or making it public,so how do you know who you can trust? And some say if you are looking for a lost friend ex boyfriend/girlfriend that they will no give any info as that could be considered stalking instead they ask the person if they want to give their info and that you are looking for them but that defeats the purpose if people dont want them to know they are inquiring about them and even people who hire one for a cheating spouse boyfriend/girlfriend isnt that a invasion of their privacy?so how does it work and what kind of info can they get,so do most private investigators ask why you want info on someone then decide if they will do it? And how are fees determined,like people who want to catch a cheating spouse they get pictures and info on them,cant that run into paying someone major money for that?are the most expensive ones the best?Would like to get some accurate info on this subject as a lot of the ineternet has scams and frauds thank you
  • Violet, one tip I'd give: Pick someone local to your area. They are much better than some of the nationwide services you see online. If you live in the California area, give Patrick Schneemann a look. When I did some research into Private Investigators some time back, he was a name that came up again and again as someone who knew what he was doing and whom you could trust for reliable advice. Good luck.
  • No, certainly no longer. whilst i grew to become into youthful and purely beginning out in social artwork I did some after hours artwork for the youngster's help and that i in basic terms lasted some months. first of all of the pager might flow off and that i might sense jangled. Then i might dream that I heard it going off at night whilst it did no longer. And the stuff I observed and discovered approximately human beings interior the small city I lived in i grew to become into no longer interested in understanding i found. those days, if somebody seems to rub me the incorrect way or strike me as unusual and that i don't comprehend I catch myself before i'm getting into thinking it too lots and purely pray and tell myself, this is none of my organization or God might have confirmed me that. :)
  • I live in the California area and I'm looking for a private detective. Anyone know a website where I can find one? Or at least give me an estimate on how much it would be to hire one? My friend suspects that her fiance is cheating on her and we're trying to find one. However, we don't have a lot of money right now. So please no sarcasm or messed up comments. She's hurting and we just need to find out what is going on.
  • Call how to catch a cheater or something like that they will hook you up

  • There are several other factors that decide how much financial aid you get besides income: http://www.ecampustours.com/payingforcol...If you need to include your parents income on the FAFSA that means you are dependent FAFSA status. (note dependent FAFSA status has nothing to do with dependent on taxes). From FAFSA help: Will I need my parents information: Were you born before January 1, 1989? As of today are you married? At the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year, will you be working on a master's or doctorate program (such as an MA, MBA, MD, JD, PhD, EdD, or graduate certificate, etc.)? Are you currently serving on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces for purposes other than training? Are you a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces? Do you have children who will receive more than half of their support from you between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013? Do you have dependents (other than your children or spouse) who live with you and who receive more than half of their support from you, now and through June 30, 2013? At any time since you turned age 13, were both your parents deceased, were you in foster care or were you a dependent or ward of the court? As determined by a court in your state of legal residence, are you or were you an emancipated minor? As determined by a court in your state of legal residence, are you or were you in legal guardianship? At any time on or after July 1, 2011, did your high school or school district homeless liaison determine that you were an unaccompanied youth who was homeless? At any time on or after July 1, 2011, did the director of an emergency shelter or transitional housing program funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development determine that you were an unaccompanied youth who was homeless? At any time on or after July 1, 2011, did the director of a runaway or homeless youth basic center or transitional living program determine that you were an unaccompanied youth who was homeless or were self-supporting and at risk of being homeless? If you are considered a dependent student, your parents must answer the parental questions on the FAFSA. If you can answer Yes to any of the questions above, you are considered an independent student and information about your parents is not required on the FAFSA . Note: Health profession students may be required to provide parental information regardless of their dependency status. If you have a special circumstance that prevents you from providing parental information you may be able to submit your FAFSA. However, your FAFSA will be incomplete. You must contact the financial office at your college and provide them with documentation to verify your situation. Okay what they mean by special circumstances are if you are homeless, are you adopted, are your parents in jail, were you removed from them due to abuse, you dont know where your parents are etc. You put this on the FAFSA but then you need to contact the financial aid office and they will ask you what documents they need for proof and what you need to do to be considered as having special cirumstances. So even if you move out, pay everything yourself, and still answer no to all those questions above you still are dependent and need your parents information (the last parent you last lived with who supported you the most financially). Also whoever that parent is you who lasted supported you if remarried legally then you would also need to include their financial information too. Based on just the income of the parent if that is the parent, then you would not qualify for grants but you could qualify for federal work study and federal loans which are way better loans then any private lender like a bank etc. There are federal student loans and parent loans. http://studentaid.ed.gov/students/attach...sample award offer from a college:http://www.triptocollege.org/paying_coll...
  • Even if you live alone, your are still considered a dependent per FAFSA rules. Whichever parent you lived with last or had primary custody of you, will have their income included with yours on the FAFSA. If you are an only child and mom makes $80K, it's doubtful that you will be offered any grants, but you will receive federal student loan offers.
  • It depends, do you live with your mom? because if you do, I don't know if you'll get money because of her high income. If you live by yourself, then you most likely will.
  • ok so i just moved to florida. I am a freshman in high school. Im 14, but still looking at colleges and scholarships and all that. I go to a private catholic high school, and get good grades. throughout my years in high school, i am going to have over a 3.5 grade pt average, and seeing if i can get a scholarship. im also a very competitive tennis player. but, my main question is can i still get a college scholarship in california, if i live in florida? how do i do that? do i apply for them, and do i have to live there for a certain amount of time? but i was a resident for 14 yrs until last week(i just moved to florida last week) i would like to attend a college like ucsb. thx u guys!
  • You can absolutely apply for scholarships that will help you go to school in California when you are currently living in Florida. The only difference is that if you were still living in CA and applied to state schools in CA, you would be eligible to pay in-state tuition which is generally a lot cheaper than out-of-state. Because you are living in Florida, and will be when you apply for schools, you will need to pay out-of-state tuition. Unless a scholarship is specific to a certain school, you will be able to put the money towards your out-of-state tuition. You might also want to consider apply for grants as well. If you need more information I would suggest checking out the site http://www.educationgrant.comThis site has tons of information about scholarships and grants- including info on where to find them, how to apply, and how to avoid scams. Good luck, and good for you for planning so far ahead!
  • One thing you'll need to consider is that the UC schools don't accept many out-of-state students - check the percentage of accepted out-of-state students in the college guidebooks.
  • I'm looking to "go away to college" and I'd like to go to California, particularly the Los Gatos/San Jose area. I currently have 12 credits (soon to be 28), and a 3.9 GPA. I wish to become a public school teacher, majoring in history and teaching Middle/High school. What colleges should I be applying to?
  • Your best bet is the private University of Santa Clara if you want to go to a four-year college. It is a a Catholic University, but religion is not pushed on non-Catholics, although one or more religion courses may be required. San Jose State is very crowded, California residents are favored for admission and the only realistic time to transfer and be accepted is for the fall semester after you have earned sixty credits. Spring transfers are not accepted at all. Stanford accepts very few transfers, usually accepts them only in the fall after they have earned sixty credits and usually requires a 4.0 GPA. If you would like further Information on these colleges or on two-year colleges, please email me. If you are currently going to a public college or university, I do not believe that it is a good use of money to pay out of state tuition at a two-year college, but I will discuss the best ones with you by email if you wish. I live in the area and know the local colleges well. Best wishes.
  • Oh, in the San Jose/Los Gatos area, there is basically only Santa Clara University and San Jose State. You could try santa clara, but you dont really have enough units to get in. 28 is not much when other applicants are doing like 60+ (which is about 2 years) same with San Jose state. You need more credits if you want to be able to transfer anywhere (i'm assuming you are a transfer applicant cuz high school students need SAT, college students use credits) 28 is not even half of what the UCs and CSUs want and with the California State budget the way it is right now, your competition has a big advantage over you cuz many of them finish at least 60 units before they apply.
  • I've taken Amtrak from Cali to Colorado many times. Even though it's expensive, spend the extra money on a roomette. Your own personal private room with a large window, and the meals (yes, they really are 5 star) are free, and can be brought to your room on request. It can cost twice as much as a flight ticket, but there's nothing quite like it if you're not in a hurry. Give your conductor a $10 if you like the way he took care of you.
  • Pancakes is right. It's a great way to travel and they usually try a little harder than the airlines or bus companies. As he said, get the sleeper. Hands down. No better way to go. If you like, bring your favorite beverage, turn out the light and lay down and watch the best TV on two rails; America. I've been 'training' since the old days when you could stand on the platform, open the top half of the door and watch the world go by. Man! Cup of coffee and the sunrise? That was awesome! Until the conductor would chase me off. I do fly but if I have my druthers, I prefer taking the train. Toonces "Skimbleshanks"
  • You are wasting your money. You cannot ride on ANY public property. NONE!! This includes any public off road riding areas. You cannot ride a bicycle on a sidewalk. The ONLY place you can ride one of these motorized toys is on PRIVATE property with owner's consent. How big is your parent's driveway? If caught on the street, you will be ticketed and the toy impounded. It will cost you far more than the purchase price. This question has been asked over and over. Answer will always be the same. Law doesn't change. EDIE EDIT Unless your neighborhood is private property, you cannot ride on public roads in your neighborhood. Someone will call the police, you will be ticketed, and pocket bike impounded. Did you read either of my links? Did you read the part about detaining an impounded pocket bike for a minimum of 48 hours? Tow and storage fees alone can cost over $300.
  • Mini Bike Laws
  • It is NOT legal to ride a pocket bike except on your parents property or where you have a landholders permission the ride it. The laws are not the same as for a push bike so riding on sidewalks, public streets and car parks is a definite NO. You haven't mentioned your age or size or what you really want to do with it but just think about how boring Mom and Dad's driveway will become after riding up and down for a while. There are heaps around second hand with not much use from guys who have 'stepped up' to a more fun bike....
  • For example, in California and Texas, operation of pocket bikes and mini-motorcycles is illegal on all public streets, sidewalks, and trails. Legal operation of pocket bikes in these states (and many others) is limited to private property only.
  • Looking at numbers alone, California ranks in the bottom in terms of public schools offered. But when u take a look at the university system available for California residents, they are off the charts. With Cal, UCLA, UCSD, Davis, Irvine, UCSB, UCSC, and even Riverside all ranking in the top 100. How does one explain the worst in HS level but higher education is the best?
  • Proposition 13 many years ago cut property taxes, which is how schools are financed. If it had just cut property taxes for private individual home owners it wouldn't have been a problem, but it also cut them for huge land owners, giant corporations. When prop 13 was on the ballot believe it or not a lot of rich people and corporations were against it precisely because they wanted California to have stable financing, they thought the value of the state having stable financing was more important than saving money on their taxes, and having an educated work force was important. It was marketed with "send a message to Sacramento"--a really cute slogan, the people bought it, didn't think things through, and what they have lost because of prop 13 far exceeds the value of what they got out of it. Stupid. Its an example of democracy failing, destroying the state, but I guess if people are that stupid they deserve what they get.
  • They everything is easier in Califonia, lol.
  • I own a rental property in southern california. I had to evict a tenant. in the process I was award a money judgment. I have attempted to garnish their wages. one tenant is already paying a judgment, the other isn't paid by their employer (they keep a percentage of what they bring in and pay the rest to their employer). can I garnish their federal or state tax refunds? if so, how?
  • A private creditor can only seize a tax refund that has been deposited into a bank account. You would put a lien on the account, not to mention all personal or real property the person might have within the jurisdiction. Local procedures vary as to how you actually "seize" or "reach" the value of what is under your lien. It can take many hours to track down assets of defendants.
  • absolutely nope. google your local laws on granishments as they vary
  • No you can't . Only fed & state gov agencies can. Never individuals or private creditors. Did you put a lien on their property at the courthouse after you got your judgment? Vehicles? Helpful link (orange county superior court) collecting judgments http://www.occourts.org/self-help/smallc...Good Luck
  • No. You need to request an account seizure, where you seize any money she has in any bank.
  • I recently bought a 99 Volvo V70 XC from a private party in CA. I'm attempting to register the vehicle in my name, but have come across the fact that the only smog certification that was given to me is seven months old . (much longer than the law required 90 days when selling a vehicle.) What should I do about this? Also does anyone know what happens when you don't notify the DMV about the transfer of registration within 10 days of the sell/purchase?
  • In California, the original owner must have the vehicle smogged before they sold you the vehicle. You can have the vehicle smogged yourself. You can try to get that money back in small claims court. Here are the transfer laws including the 10 day notification. http://www.dmv.ca.gov/online/nrl/nrlfaq....
  • Just get the car smogged yourself, it takes about 20 minutes and costs $40 at the most. It's not a big deal.
  • Lauren - that's admirable which you do not desire to "ruin somebody's existence," yet they of course did not have the comparable appreciate for you. that's as much as you, yet i could checklist the vehicle stolen. you have the call, proper? you have the criminal proper to the vehicle.
  • of course. Talk to your counselor. The next SAT date (they are done saturdays) is June 6 and you will have to pay money for registering late. There will be several more, I just don't know their dates
  • extra commonly than not, no. In England we take SATs in Years 2, 6 and 9 yet they're taking into consideration abolishing them because it places too a lot stress on little ones to attain sturdy consequences. i have purely taken my KS3 SATS and to be straightforward, they don't quite count number for far yet my English instructor in undemanding words informed us that when the checks so as that we doesn't purely go away the papers. i imagine they're only a level for the authorities to confirm how properly colleges are assembly their aims of preparation criteria. maximum inner most schools choose now to not take SATs because they could particularly concentration on a extra rounded coaching even though it truly is completely as a lot because the faculty. also, if there are particular students who've problems with Maths, English and technology, they could take delivery of time previous regulation to finish the checks or not even take them in any respect.
  • The California DMV website has a "fee estimator" feature. Give it a try. "www.dmv.ca.gov". (Note, "DMV.org" is NOT the official California DMV website) If you are buying this car from a private party make absolutely they can put a CLEAR title in your hand BEFORE any money is exchanged. Do NOT compromise on that point!

  • I'm not sure, I'm sorry.. But can you tell me what kind of car it is that you're talking about?:)
  • Private colleges offer more financial aid, so in many cases, attending a private school can be just as affordable, if not, more than attending a state university. Anyhow, I recommend looking into Occidental College, Claremont McKenna College, all the UC schools, and University of Southern California.
  • Public or private DOES matter because SOMEONE has to pay for it. Are you a LEGAL resident of the United States and of the State of California? If so; all you have to do is apply to colleges that YOU want to attend and see which ones will accept you. Perhaps you should figure out what sort of major of college degree you want to obtain BEFORE you mail in your application package.
  • Claremont college! I believe they have the highest graduates attending Ivy League grad programs
  • The depends on what you want to major in, what field of work or career path you want to pursue. Different colleges have different connections and internship opportunities.
  • California only answers please. Selling an old car, not registered, not running from my storage yard location. This is my car, no delinquent/lien problems, straight sales one private party to another. Is this just like selling any car, doing a release of liability, sign the pink slip over at DMV, get the money and leave? or because it hasn't been registered in 20+ years and has no plates, are there any other type of requirements? Will I be required to pay sales tax on the sale also? When I stored it way back when, I applied for non use/non running paperwork so no past due fees apply.. Thanks for any observations..
  • If all the paperwork is in order, yes, it is that simple. You will not pay taxes, it will get collected by the DVM when they do the title transfer, so the buyer pays it. You should however make an appointment with the DMV to make sure everything is in order. The only non use paperwork I know of is planned non operation and that is only good for 1 year. You may have a nasty surprise waiting there.
  • I have no thought how this fantasy keeps going around. Stansell is thoroughly incorrect. there is no seventy two hour era to retun a motor vehicle - EVER. no longer 3 days, 3 months, 3 hours, 3 seconds. as quickly as ink is on paper the transaction is very final. This guy can threaten lawsuit all he needs. it incredibly is his surprising to hold a case in the previous a choose. besides the undeniable fact that, he will lose and be out the courtroom costs besides. If he threatens you with a lawsuit provide him 2 products of education: The handle to the courthouse the place he can document his case, and the circumstances of day Peoples courtroom and decide Judy are on - so he ca do his legal study.
  • I just graduated my private high school in California. I'm trying to find a job and I'm wondering what is a good hourly wage to be making at this point in my life? Every place I apply at only offers $7 an hour, and I made a dollar more than that back when I was in high school! I know I don't really have any 'qualifications', but could I be making more than minimum wage now? I'm just curious to what peoples thoughts are on the subject at hand.
  • I say just take the best offer and build your resume my while looking for another job. You become more desirable to employers when you are employed, while you also gain experience and money.
  • Dont just make money by being employed.. invest! what i mean is, go sharpen ur communication skills, knowledge about being financially literate, stockmarket n stuff. of course u're just a kid, but kid, its worth the hell of investment in the future when u've gained all that.. go to the book store and read the Rich Dad Poor Dad for Teens book. U'll thank me kid
  • anywhere from minimum to 10 hrly. I know some high school students who have had jobs for awhile so I depends on some of your experience and maybe references you can get.
  • waiter/waitress work ir bartending is a nice business to get into without any real exp needed often. the tips are off the books,
  • Im a senior in HS right now. I did alrite in HS, 3.6 weighted gpa and 1700 sat but I only had one year of foreign language in Chinese. I took 2 AP english course and one AP gov/econ. I applied to several schools but I am really considering just going to Santa Monica College for a year and then transferring. I want to transfer to either a UC, U of Washington, Rutgers, or any other prestigious 4 year university. I want to major in business marketing. Ive finished stats and precalc already. I plan on taking at least Spanish 1 and Spanish 2 to meet the foreign language requirement. I plan on studying very hard and getting a 4.0 gpa. I qualified for the honors program so I can go with that route. Where can I transfer after one year? What will I need to do at my JC? Can i transfer a UC like UCSB after one year at SMC? And also I heard thats your summer following graduation doesnt count or something, so should i not take a course over summer like Spanish to make sure I have 2 semesters done by application time?
  • Students cannot transfer to any California public university until they have completed sixty semester units or ninety quarter units, including the required transfer classes. It is a waste of money to pay out of state undergraduate tuition fees at a public university. Almost all universities require that work required for fall transfer enrollment be completed by the previous June. You can transfer to some private universities if your freshman college GPA is high enough. You will save many thousands of dollars by completing two years at SMC in the guaranteed UC transfer program and completing its requirements.
  • Lili totally under rates CalTech. Check this out: 12 California Institute of Technology (PhD Program) Private School, Research University, Offline Only $98,800 $126,900 The lower salary is straight out, the higher is after five years. [See source.]
  • That would depend on where they worked. Most people with PhDs teach at universities. Assistant professors (the starting level) in Computer Science are probably making salaries in the $70s and $80s Edit: oldprof (and I'm an academic myself), I'm talking about academic positions, which is what most people with PhDs are going to get. A university isn't going to pay someone out of Caltech and someone out of RPI much differently for the same assistant professor position. Moreover, you notice that I gave a figure for assistant professors, which is the STARTING position at universities. I was not talking about private industry. I did check my figures, by the way. You need to read a little more carefully.
  • Next year the tuition will be $38,438 at California Institute of the Arts. At the Art Institute the figure was $24,864 as of last February. The Art Institute is far easier to get into. You should, however, do some research on the Art Institute. You might google "Art Institute scam" and read some of the information you find. The Art Institute is a for-profit school. It makes money off its students. CalArts is a private, nonprofit school. That means that it spends more money educating its students than it takes in as tuition. It gets that extra money from donations. You will get a better education at CalArts. In the end, it may end up costing you less. Your employment prospects will be better if you graduate from CalArts.
  • California has no expungement as you probably understand the term. You can, however, get a post-conviction dismissal if you successfully complete probation under Penal Code section 1203.4 (that is available for most misdemeanors and felonies). By state law and regulations, a private employer cannot consider a conviction in making employment decisions if it has been dismissed pursuant to section 1203.4. (This hardly makes money for lawyers, since in most cases the individual can do it himself.) http://www.courts.ca.gov/1070.htm
  • Yes Will it do you any good? No just makes money for the lawyers who lie and says now everything is off the record. Only off official records. The private companies that report to businesses still have the info.
  • Nope Not 90 days or 90 seconds. Done is done. The moment yo uhand over money and tatke the keys, you own the car and any problems it has. This is why we tell people - ALWAYS get a mechanical inspection before you buy. Sure, it will cost you $100 or so. But it can stop you buying a car that needs major work, or assure you the one you found is worth your hard earned money. Remember - done is done. No take-backs. No do-overs
  • Are you REALLY sure you are trying to buy a car from a private party? Really? If someone came to me with that nonsense that I must warranty a sold vehicle for three months, I would ROFL for a few minutes then slam the door in their face.
  • You've got to be kidding! Absolutely not, not in CA or anywhere else. Private party car sales are always "as is" transactions, unless the seller provides a warranty in writing.
  • No not from a private party.
  • I am a Private caregiver working on an estate looking after an elderly woman. I worked with about 5 or 6 other people. So what happened was that on Monday 5th we were all informed verbally that someone had stolen some jewelery and other items for the main house. I suspected 2 of my other co-workers even my boss through the agency knows it was them or at lease suspects it, we all work with the same agency. I have worked there for over 3 years now. Regarding the items that went missing - We were informed about it on Monday the 5th and than on Wednesday 6th i received a letter in the mail stating that the items had to be returned, no questions asked within 5 days or the police would be informed (heard about that on monday actually)...On Wednesday 7th they said that the police had been informed and an investigation would be underway. I was like ... "OK, i really hope they sought this and find out who did it" because the couple we had been working for are the sweetest people. Than TODAY Thursday 8th, we were informed that SOME of the items had been returned and we were all fired. FIRED! .. i had NOTHING to do with the items that went missing. I saw them before but the fact that they were missing was a surprise to me, i had no idea. I actually suspect the accountant of hiding something. She for the last couple of months had been hovering around and nit-picking everything, from the expense of the laundry detergent to the fact that the door had to be fixed and the expense of it. The couple i work for are very wealthy elderly who have no CLOSE relatives. There was an open account for groceries and an open account for housing fixtures etc. So it had never been a problem before, so why was it a problem now? She had been EAGERLY trying to get us dismissed also. I seriously suspect that she had been taking the money from the elderly couple. Anyway back to me...I have no problem getting a job. All of my past employers have given me great references and i have a great background in nursing. What i am protesting is the fact that on my record/background its going to have that i was fired for STEALING! I did no steal Anything. I am not like that, i don't steal from other ESPECIALLY my employers or from the elderly couple that we work for. Its wrong, i can't explain it but its how i am. i just WOULD NOT do anything like that. I am consulting a lawyer now because of Wrongful Dismissal. There was no evidence of ME having anything to do with it and there was no reasonable or actually any explanation. We were just told we were all fired. I have 4 kids and a bills to take care of. I can't have this "FIRED" thing on my background, even when i didn't do it. So the big question, Do i have a case?
  • Chill.. The employer used the California at will employment policy = firing anyone, for any reason, at any time. This same law allows you to quit a job without notice. An employment contract voids the at will policy. As long as they don't tell anyone that you were fired for stealing, they aren't doing anything wrong. If they tell anyone you were fired for stealing without proof (admission of guilt, conviction, surveliance video, etc), then you have a case. Instead of worrying about whether you have an "involuntary termination" on your background, call the other great reference you have and see if they know of any other opportunities for you.
  • The good news is that you are consulting a lawyer for your legal rights. The lawyer can explain if you have a case or not. Most likely even though they were not going inform the police, they realized that with the amount missing could put them in some legal problems by failing to get them involved. Also, since all of the items were not returned and they could not prove who actually did steal these items, they most likely thought it best to get rid of all of you to avoid any further theft in the future. You have good past references and I suggest in any new job, you do not discuss the case and keep mum if possible. good luck
  • I'm a teacher in MA and we don't pay into social security. We pay into a "private" fund run by the Massachusetts Teacher Association. They keep track of our money just like social security does and at a better rate (Also, they seem to do a better job than the government does - I have no fear of the funds "drying" up as we've been hearing in the news for the past 5 years). She might not be eligible to apply for disability from the state, but she should be able to apply to the group who took who retirement funds. I know that we have that option. She needs to do more research...
  • My boyfriend was a teacher in California, and I am pretty sure he payed into social security. She should try applying for unemployment. Was she laid off?
  • So, this isn't real or anything, just for school. Lets say you are married with 4 kids who go to a private school. You get paid 140,000 dollars a year and, you are a partner on youtube so you make money off of that also. Your husband makes 275,000-300,000 dollars a year. You want to have a 2 million dollar home in France and a 2 million dollar home in California. Approximatly how much would you need to make a year and what changes need to be made to your salary??
  • Wait for the recession next year and they could buy 2 million $1 houses in California.
  • None. A family making $575 000 a year can easily afford a 2 million dollar home. $575 000 is an extremely rich family.
  • I work for a private country club in california ive always been a good employee and my reviews been in the top 5 for 9 years since the club got new management its been a horrible place to work they don't appreciate nothing everybody gets treated like garbage and the manager has been put on probation 2 times for harassing people. Im not looking for money just want the club to be a fair place for all employees
  • No. You have a choice - either work under the new guidelines provided by the new management or find another job. Sounds like the new management is cleaning house and running off all the folks associated with the old management. Not uncommon.
  • Sometimes places just get taken over by sh*tty management and there's really nothing you can do. Nothing in your post seems to rise to the level of legal harrasment or unfair treatment. And it does seem like the company is taking affirmtive steps to dealing with percieved harrasment by placing the manager on probation so there's no negleince. It just sucks to see a place go down hill. The only thing you can really do is look for a new job. And maybe if they see the good employees jump ship and attendance start to wayne they'll change things around.
  • what part of your silly complaint is considered harassment or unfair? new management happens all the time and new management is under no legal obligation to continue any set policy or happy environment that you previously experienced. you have nothing to sue for, you have no real damages.
  • i'm no longer seeing the way it is legally unfair remedy. i'm helpful that's amazingly inconvenient, yet except those transfers were consistent with a secure classification, there is no longer a lot you could do. Sorry.
  • (sigh) No. Unfair is not illegal.
  • drive over me.
  • yes and you will also get sucked out the window if tyou opened a window in an airplane
  • You will need a bachelor's degree in any academic field and a master's degree in social work. The bachelor's degree takes four years and the master's degree takes two more years. To be licensed, which is not necessary for all social work jobs, you will also need to complete an internship and pass a state exam. Salaries start in the low 40ks. If you become licensed and build a successful private practice, you can charge about $160 an hour. You need not go to university in California where you will have to pay thousands of dollars in out of state or private college or university tuition fees. You can receive just as good an education for much less money at a public university in your state of legal residence, which until you are 24 is usually determined by your parents' state of legal residence. You can not become a legal resident of a state for tuition purposes by moving there for educational purposes.
  • NOPE Your best wet dream is places like California where the leftist governor is signing SB130 which will allow private money to go to college bound illegals, but it wasn't so popular with the actual Californians. But no matter what, you won't be able to get a job due to the push behind E-Verify and other initiatives to prevent employers from hiring illegals. So I really can't understand why illegal kids don't apply for citizenship and do the paperwork. "illegal immigration" is still a crime, and "illegal" is a status..........which can be changed LEGALLY before this whole thing comes back to bite you in the (_I_). The melting pot is over, it ended Ages ago, and America has enough of the poor and huddles masses of moron's we've been getting from other countries. We need someone with brains now days. Alot of the prick college aged illegals blocking the streets almost a year ago in L.A. had useless degrees in like "latino studies". How does that help America I have no idea. We need doctors, engineers, architects, or even entrepreneurs............
  • You re an illegal alien and no. You must have a S.S. number to work and it would be a felony for anyone to hire an illegal. Very few places are allowing illegals to attend college but fail to tell them that they will not become employed after.
  • Jobs No not even legal people can get a job. College depends on what state you live in. Some have passed a law that allows illegals to apply for private fund scholarships.
  • You can go to college, because all they want is to get paid. They will take anyone. Do you have any job opportunities? Yes, but not in the United States. If you want to use your degree, you will eventually have to leave the country. That's it, there is no way around it.
  • Nope
  • americans dont even have job opportunities right now, so what chance do u have?
  • yes. in your home country
  • baffles me why you even want to stay ..there is no future here for you
  • Take the citizenship test would be the first thing. After that it's gonna be real hard but I believe you can find something.
  • No. Go home.
  • No, there are specific laws in California that state pocket bikes are ONLY legal on private property with owner's consent. They are not even allowed off road. If caught riding a pocket bike on the street you will be ticketed and pocket bike impounded. Do not waste your money on a pocket bike. Read the last link. "Pocket Bike Manufacturers: Disclosure Statement 9955. (a) A manufacturer of a pocket bike shall affix on the pocket bike a sticker with a disclosure stating that the device is prohibited from being operated on a sidewalk, roadway, or any part of a highway, or on a bikeway, bicycle path or trail, equestrian trail, hiking or recreational trail, or on public lands open to off-highway motor vehicle use. (b) The disclosure required under subdivision (a) shall meet both of the following requirements: (1) Be printed in not less than 14-point boldface type on a sticker that contains only the disclosure. (2) Include the following statement: “THE POCKET BIKE YOU HAVE PURCHASED OR OBTAINED IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED FROM BEING OPERATED ON A SIDEWALK, ROADWAY, OR ANY OTHER PART OF A HIGHWAY, OR ON A BIKEWAY, BICYCLE PATH OR TRAIL, EQUESTRIAN TRAIL, HIKING OR RECREATIONAL TRAIL, OR ON PUBLIC LANDS OPEN TO OFF-HIGHWAY VEHICLE USE. A VIOLATION OF THIS REGULATION MAY RESULT IN PROSECUTION AND SEIZURE OF THE DEVICE.”
  • Pocket Bike Street Legal
  • Pocket bikes are limited to private property and only with the owners permission.
  • 1) This is the cycling section - as in BICYCLES. #2) You should really try the MOTORCYCLE section. #3) To the best of my knowledge - pocket bikes are only permitted on private property.
  • Obviously both states have thier fair share of good and bad schools. But I live in California and probably, schools in New York are better. Right now we're in a major budget crisis and basically schools are losing money and teachers. From my perspective, except for the private schools, schools here tend to be "O.K"– not really special, but not great either.
  • Yeah you could probably get in there. You might like cal poly too, but I've heard they just go for numbers really. If you have money to pay for a private you should totally try for usc.
  • I need to know everything about Tacoma, from the weather to hot spots. Living there, whats it like and so on. I'm from the central valley here in California and I want to move so bad. I also need to know how close tacoma is from seattle. Whats the job market like for females. Also I need to know about other great communities, if there are any. I also want to buy a house when I get to Washington and need to know which place is going to give me the most house for my money. And if anybody knows about the nursing job market there that would be a plus. Are there lots of great schools, not just for children but to continue your education. Basically everything about Washington. And please only people that live there or have lived there!
  • Tacoma is a fine city. It's cooler than California and has more rainy days per year than most of California. It's a port city and the Port of Tacoma is busier than the Port of Seattle. If traffic flows smoothly, it's about an hours drive from Downtown Tacoma to Downtown Seattle, maybe less if you drive a bit fast. There's also a train that travels weekday mornings to Seattle from Tacoma and weekday afternoons from Seattle to Tacoma. The nursing job market is very good in this area, as it is in most areas of the country, as nurses are in high demand. The University of Washington in Seattle is one of the best universities in the country, and it has a branch located in Downtown Tacoma. Tacoma also has Pacific Lutheran University and the University of Puget Sound (both well-respected, private colleges) as well as an Evergreen State College (main branch in Olympia) branch. The schools of Tacoma are relatively good for being in a fairly large city and Tacoma has recently gone back to teaching math the "old way" which should see math test scores improve markedly. I would say Tacoma schools are superior to Seattle schools, but inferior to the best schools in the state, which are located east of Seattle. In Seattle, the University of Washington's nursing school and medical school are among the best (and hardest to get in to) in the country. Many nurses and students make the commute via train or bus to Seattle from Tacoma every day. Tacoma has many trendy spots, they are mainly clustered along Pacific Avenue and 6th Avenue. There is also a thriving theater district in Tacoma and there's a nice trolly (called the Link) that takes people from the Tacoma dome to the theater district, and all along Pacific Avenue. Pacific Avenue and the nearby Theater district are more for people with mature, refined, grown up tastes, with the exception of the very popular Loft nightclub which is located there. 6th Avenue is for the younger set, and features more live music and jam-packed clubs and trendier restaurants. The best places to live in Tacoma are in the North End, The West Side, and the area of Brown's Point (in the North East). These areas feature the largest, best, and oldest homes in Tacoma and boast the best schools and the safest neighborhoods. Talk of Tacoma crime is overblown, Tacoma is a very safe city, with few problems, and those problems are concentrated mostly on the lower east side of the city, but Police have had great success in tackling crime since it reached it's height some 15 years ago. Tacoma has seen a renaissance of sorts and has become an exciting, trendy place. Other places nearby that are good to live are: Federal Way, a suburb. Puyallup, a suburb that used to be a rural area. Sumner, a suburb that is still more rural than suburban. Fircrest, Parkland, and University Place are also nice, nearby suburbs. It is best to steer clear of Spannaway, and Lakewood, both located to the South of Tacoma. As for buying a house, the best thing to do is shop around. Average home prices for any Tacoma zip code can be found right here on Yahoo. Know that the price goes down for living in a worse area and the price goes up for living in a good area and the suburbs still have among the best prices. The farther you go from any downtown, urban area, the cheaper it will be, but your commute will be longer. Washington is an excellent state to live in, I've lived in many parts of the state and currently live in Tacoma. I've lived in Seattle too, but I'd rather live in Tacoma than Seattle. Tacoma's cheaper, easier to travel around in and has Point Defiance park, the best city park outside of New York's Central Park. Tacoma has quicker access than Seattle to Mt. Rainier National Park, The Olympic Peninsula, Mt. St. Helens, Portland, Oregeon, and the Ocean Beaches of the coast. If you are a nurse, there are several hospitals in the greater Tacoma area and there is a shortage of nurses throughout Washington State, so employment would be little problem. I hope that helps.
  • Tacoma was rated one of the most unsafest places in Washington regarding crime. That was a few years ago but there are still reports on an occassional criminal incident here and there. Tacoma however is also beautiful. I-5 is the main use of transportation and it's also considerably close to the Seattle Tacoma International Airport. Driving can be somewhat of a pain but a new four lane bridge has been opened, hoping to relieve the traffic congestion that has plagued through Tacoma. There is also a few colleges nearby, and you can even commute to universities to complete your education. Jobs are always a plus in Tacoma. It's a big city so you shouldn't find too much trouble placing a job you want. Residential life is generally quiet, but that depends on where you live. The outskirts of Tacoma are beautiful and there are some pretty amazing views. If you plan to commute to Seattle, it'd be about a 30 minute drive depending on the flow of traffic. That's actually not bad, considering both cities are notorious for a lot of drivers. It rains a lot sometimes but generally doing the fall and spring. In the winter, it can get pretty cold, well below freezing so make sure you're a bit experienced in ice slick driving. As for summers, they are beautiful every year. Many call Seattle the Emerald City, because it glistens from the fresh air to the beautiful Puget Sound.
  • Yeah, Tacoma sucks. Tacompton. Washington is awesome though. Move somewhere else like Seattle, Kirkland, etc.
  • Tacoma is a depressing city, near a big harbour and transport center, weather is a little bit like CA, not too cold but wetter and greener, There are lot of nursing jobs in seattle area about $20 per hour, house in tacoma is cheapest in seattle area, about $200,000.
  • Avoid Tacoma at all costs. It is a smelly crime ridden City - I would not touch it with a Barge Pole.
  • Your money's as good as anyone's. Maybe a private campground might try to restrict people. But a forest service campground you just put your money in an envelope and drop it in the box and that's your interaction with authority unless someone has to call the cops because you're disturbing other campers. But you at least need your parent's permission to be out overnight I'm sure or they could say you ran away from home and I think that's some sort of crime or frowned on at least.
  • Look into going out to Catalina Island. You don't say if you are a guy or a girl, but especially if you are a girl, Catalina is by far the safest place in all of CA to camp or hike. I absolutely love Catalina, and feel very comfortable being there. As for your age, I think you need to call the people who control the camping areas you are looking into and ask them if the youngest age allowed is 18. Check out this site>>>
  • camping is groups activity.
  • yes if you want to
  • I am one semester into community college and am not having a good time and looking to transfer. I got into a bunch of school after high school but financially I could not go. I am not looking to transfer to a bigger school. I have 13 units which is under the 60 required for most CSU and UC but I am really hoping that a transfer will be possible. Does anyone know of some places who will accept someone with 13 units in Cali?
  • Many private colleges and universities will admit transfers with thirteen credits. You can find information on http://collegesearch.collegeboard.com . However, unless you recently inherited a large amount of money, you will not have the funds to attend now, any more than you did when you started community college. The purpose of community college is education, not having a good time. Most students at community college do not have a good time there. There is no guarantee that you will be happier at a four-year college or university. College and university are full of academic pressure and of social pressure for people who care about the latter. That college or university is like a vacation is an untrue myth. Be realistic, do three more semesters at community college and save thousands of dollars in money or indebtedness. Best wishes.
  • I move to csulb that's approximately 20 min from csula. i will be able to inform you that csula is a good university for trade however that is approximately it. it isn't an overly comptitive university, however any institution in which you'll get a measure is well and employers will like that exceptionally if you happen to wish to paintings in LA. i do not suppose they stopped getting rid of of state citizens however they could have made it extra diffucult to get in considering that they supply precedence to california citizens first. so that you will have to seem into that.i additionally understand that it's not a celebration university however each institution has it is stocks of events. the intent is that this can be a commuter university, identical to csulb. a rule of thumb is the universities in city locations like csula and csulb more often than not shouldn't have massive partying. the universities in smaller towns have extra persons dwelling on campus and are ordinarily viewed celebration faculties. of path there are acceptions to that rule. my recommendation is to use to csula however follow different locations too if you happen to wish a bigger social lifestyles and extra educational popularity. well success!
  • No. Only one or two private trade schools that want your money will take Un.Pho credits and that is only if you have a "degree".
  • Find the contact info for the State College of choice, call and ask them
  • Hi, It might help you in your situation http://onlineuniversitiestips.comRegards,
  • very good question
  • im really interested in this school for my college of choice. i would be an out of state student so im also wondering if that has that big of an impact on me getting in. im also a junior in high school and getting a 3.0. also just as a side note. the high school i attend is a pretty prestigious high school that is harder than the average high school . do you guys know if they will take that into account when they are reviewing my application. im in no ap classes aswell. what should i do to get more noticed. Also if you guys have any first hand encounters with UCSB please tell me what you think of the school thanks to all
  • About 96% of students at UCSB are California residents. An out of state student would probably need at GPA of at least 3.75 for admission. A GPA of 3.0 would put an applicant in the bottom 2% of all admitted students and would virtually exclude any possibility of admission for an out of state student. UCSB is an excellent university, but it is not worth paying out of state undergraduate tuition to attend. An out of state student could get much better value for the same amount of money at many private colleges and universities.

  • Yes, if you live frugally. You can support yourself on 2 cars a month. You need to buy a car trailer. You will be buying your cars at auctions which are closed to the public. Those cars are not registered so you can't drive them off the auction lot. You have the ability to look over the cars the day before the auction. But you can't know much about them. At the auction itself, each car is driven up .... and you have 30 seconds to make a decision. Everyone bids on the BMW's. The plain American small trucks sell cheap. Bonds are cheap to purchase. $5,000 bond for under $50. You will pay a little more for your car insurance if you are letting people test drive your cars. After a few trips to the auction, the old-timers will smile and help you out. They were new once.
  • In California the seller MUST provide you with a CLEAR title BEFORE any money is exchanged No title, no sale! Period. End of discussion. AT THE MOMENT OF SALE!!! Got it? They are also require to supply an Emissions Certificate done within 90 days of the sale date. Remember make absolutely certain the person selling the car is the exact same person named in print on the face of the title. The DMV will NEVER allow you to register the car without a CLEAR title.
  • The bill of sale you need for paying the 8.75% sales tax ( or what ever it is since the 9 years since I left CA. If the vehicle is unregistered past 60 days an is non op ed that's ok. But if the owner ignored the registration completely there could be some outstanding fees and penalties that must be paid at the dmv before you can register it. And the owner is responsible to get the car a smog test depending on what year it is. This is not on you unless you decide to take the car without a smog which is not a good idea. You can write the bill of sale on almost anything. Just make it simple for example write bill of sale across the top of a blank piece of paper add the date and write " I fred flinstone sold a 1933 rock mobile lic no............... for the sum of 600 rocks to barney rubble in as is condition. no implied warranty. then both of you sign and date it make two copies and keep one for yourself. Once you have a bill of sale look on the title the lien holder should be the same name as the registered owner. This means the car title is clear and their is no lien holder. If the owner is listed as the registered owner and there is a different name in the lienholdrs box it needs to be signed off along with a business stamp and a signature to prove that the car title has been released. You can also call the dmv and double check that the title is clear. Don't get jammed up because the registered owner name is not the same as the legal owner or the lien holder something is not right. always look at the title physically before flashing any money make sure it is not a salvage title. And if you feel nervous about the exchange of cash and title then meet the guy at your bank even if the money is in your pocket. In fact any bank will do fine in a pinch. I have even used a bank I did not have an account at. Just act like you belong and use the table in the middle of the bank. I have done a lot of cars like this an never even been asked a question. Its the next best place to the police station. I went over to buy a car one night and the had asked the owner of the car if he had the title 3 separate times. He assured me he did. But when I got there and he invited me in his apr. I damn near had a heart attack. There was a shot gun behind the door. There was another long rifle across the room by a bedroom door and a 357 magnum next to the guys hand. and of course he did not have the title but held out a ripped corner if a piece of paper with some scribbling on it that sd taihe year make and model and 70 dollars. That was it no auction house no stamp no name no signature which is not a title. I told the guy no I will not buy the car and he started screaming at the top of his lungs you will buy my car froth whipping off his lips. I about shoved my friend out the door to get out of the apartment onto the busy street hoping he did not shoot us in the meantime. He followed us down to the car we came in screaming like a nut. but at least he left the guns inside. But you never know its best to be careful so now if I ever sell a car again and do not like the situation I will tell the new owner to meet me in the bank to get the title from a safety deposit box.
  • Yes, he must sign the title. Make sure he does before you leave.

  • i decided to take the SAT a long time ago but as im getting closer to the end of my junior year im starting to realize the cost and what it takes to go to a UC school. i have decent grades but i already know its not good enough to get into a private school, plus im trying to take the cheap route and go to community college for 2 years then transfer. i know for a fact that im going to community college first, so would i be wasting my money on taking the SAT or should i just take it to see what i get?
  • As long as you attend a community college in California, then you will not be required to submit the SAT in order to be eligible to transfer to any of the UC's. The link here details the requirements for transfer students from CA community colleges: http://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/ad... As such, it would be a waste to take the SAT if you're deadset on going to community college, although I encourage you to think it over and talk to other people about it. This option is definitely never emphasized as much as it should be, but options such as financial aid, scholarships, and grants make it more feasible for lower-income families to afford private education.
  • Do you have a dealer license? There are auto auctions but most are closed to the public. http://manheim.com/corporate/locations/index.mpl For that sort of money you're likely better off searching for private party cars near you or discount car lots. Something you see and can drive usually beats the $700 mystery cars found at an auction. Most cheap cars like that end up at auctions for a reason... you'll likely inherit someone else's problems.
  • Just go down to watts and put the word out and they'll have you a Caddy or Honda civic by 9am tomorrow morning you'll have to make your own license plate i'd used cardboard// they'll fix it up so you dont even have to have keys//
  • The ones that you're almost positive you can get into. Not the UCs though because they are public and rarely have tons of money together. Look for smaller, private institutions.
  • No one has answered my question. I have taken a course with this institution before and they have gone very long hours before giving students a lunch break, time to use the restroom, etc. Due to their policy, I am unable to leave the school without losing all of the money I paid for the course. I'm asking about any existing laws that would make it mandatory for there to be breaks as a part of the course schedule. Not whether or not the teachers will want to break or not. And no, they don't give breaks every hour. I understand that as an adult volunteering to take a course, I can at any time leave as I chose. However, as to not miss the class material and not be penalized for leaving, I want to know what laws, if any, are out there to dictate student rights. I'm going to speak to the administrators about this matter and I would appreciate knowing my rights before I attempt to do so. I am a full time college student and I know that my community college has a very good policy
  • You are a little unclear in your question fact pattern. It sounds like you are taking a course at a private post-secondary school while simultaneously attending community college, and your post-secondary instructor is not giving breaks? There is nothing in the CA education code that mandates breaks for adult students. However, most colleges have a policy of providing a 10 minute break after each hour of instruction for those classes that run 2-3 hours. This is because of the teacher's rights as an employee. The California Labor Code mandates the employee receive a minimum of 10 minutes paid rest break for every four hours worked, or "major fraction" thereof. Anything over two hours is considered by the courts to be a "major fraction" of four. The employee is also entitled to a minimum of 30 minutes (unpaid) for a meal period if working for more than 5 hours. These breaks and meal times flow from the teacher to the students, obviously, because if the teacher is on break so is the student. Sometimes teachers and students agree to forgo the hourly breaks and dismiss class early (or give a longer lunch break), although legally, they are not supposed to do that. I find it hard to comprehend your instructor choosing to teach for 9 hours straight with no rest breaks, and if this is a school policy, then the school is in violation of the labor law. The employer must provide the break time, however, a recent CA Supreme Court ruling found that the employee is under no obligation to take the provided break. (Still, I cannot imagine a teacher standing for 9 hours teaching and forgoing his/her earned breaks) If your "9 hour class" is actually a series of 1 hour sessions with different teachers, then you have a natural break in-between sessions to use the restroom, and in either scenario there should be a lunch break 4-5 hours into the class. Without knowing what school you are attending, it's impossible to look into this further. I suggest referring to your student handbook for the break policy regarding students, and if the teacher is violating it, then report it to Administration. If the handbook is silent on this issue, then gather a group of students and approach the teacher, asking for reasonable bathroom breaks. If you're given the answer that "you may leave at any time to use the restroom" reply as you did above, that you shouldn't be penalized by missing instruction for taking a break. Surely if the class speaks up, the teacher can provide a morning and afternoon break in addition to the lunch break.
  • You will take breaks about once an hour, the people giving the lectures use the break time themselves and to talk to people.
  • ?? You are in a voluntary course of study. If you wish to leave, ask to do so. The law has no say int he matter.
  • Are you serious............even professors take breaks, therefore, do NOT worry about it.
  • I just graduated my private high school in California. I'm trying to find a job and I'm wondering what is a good hourly wage to be making at this point in my life? Every place I apply at only offers $7 an hour, and I made a dollar more than that back when I was in high school! I know I don't really have any 'qualifications', but could I be making more than minimum wage now? I'm just curious to what peoples thoughts are on the subject at hand.
  • Without a college education it is going to be difficult to get directly into a high paying position, obviously. My boyfriend didn't go to college and is a painter. After a year with the company he is making 11.50 an hour. (He started out at 9/hr) I'm in college but I also work (We both graduated from high school by the way), and I make 6.00 an hour in retail. I'll be getting my first raise in october when I have been at the company for a year, and hopefully moving up to assisstant manager soon as well. Without college, and possibly even with college depending on the field you go in to, you are going to have to start from the bottom and work your way up to higher pay. It sucks, but that is just the way life is. You said it yourself, you don't have any "qualifications" so no buisness is going to pay you more than you're worth.
  • It is quite possible she is telling the truth, at least she could be a student pilot. The California Flight Academy in San Diego takes students from 16years old. BUT you must be 17 before getting your Private Pilot's Certificate. It's only sixteen if they want to pilot a balloon on or a glider! The only criteria they need to fill to become a student is: * They are at least 16 years old. * They can read, speak, and understand English AND: * They hold at least a current third-class medical certificate. * Oh and you need lots of money!

  • I HIRED A PRIVATE DETECTIVE DO SOME WORK FOR ME AND I CALLED IT OFF WHEN HE DIDN'T DO HIS JOB BY GETTING ME ANY INFORMATION.I PAIDED HIM OVER $3000.00 AND WAS OWED $940.00 AND HE PAIDED ME WITH A CHECK. I WAS SO UPSET WITH MY DAD DYING AND MY HUSBAND CHEATING THAT I FORGOT TO CASH THE CHECK. THE CHECK IS FROM 2007 AND NOW THE THE GUY (WHICH IS FROM ANOTHER STATE SO I CAN'T TAKE HIM TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT) WON'T REISSUE ME MY MONEY. HE SAYS THE BANK SAID IT IS TOO HARD TO LOOK UP TO SEE IF I CASHED THE CHECK. I HAVE THE CHECK IN MY HAND HERE IN CALIFORNIA. WHAT CAN I DO? I NEED MY MONEY BACK. PLEASE ANY ADVICE.
  • For starters, don't type in all-capital letters.
  • Our metropolitan elites want to give away our money, not theirs. Simple as that.
  • California is losing business and population at a frightening rate because you cant afford to do business there. They just cant quit spending more money than they have. I do a lot of business there. What a shame, It could be a great place
  • Hollywood liberals are the 'do as I say not as I do' crowd

  • It's usually a tech school - and most of them are private schools. The downfall is that it will cost you, a lot of money. And sadly, they are flooding the market with new grad MA. So do a little more research by going to http://www.indeed.com and see if your home town (enter the zip code) are looking for medical assistants. Do note that most of them are asking for experienced ones only.
  • I had a judgment entered on 6-7-11 In van nuys california with visitation and overnights and all that good stuff. Then post judgment respondent start to not comply with the order and she deliberately with held visits from me and would not co-parent. I took her to court. cause I also I needed to reduce the child support. I was pro-per she had a lawyer. They turned the whole thing around on me. I was late 2 times for my custody exchange, and 2 times I got confused about when I was to drop off the child. Plus I had a private album on face book with my daughter on Halloween posing with a Lady that was dressed like a person from an insane asylum. I commented on the picture "soul & her mom". I thought it was funny. some how her mom saw that and showed it to the court stating that I was making derogatory comments about the mom and using our daughter to do it. The judge didn't like it and striped all of my visitation away and all of my custody and all of my. The judge also imposed monitored visitation one day a week because my violations of court order put the child at in danger. she said that it was a significant change is circumstances. Basically I got screwed. I need to appeal. The other party did not prove why the modification would benefit the child. Nor do i think there reasoning to justify Substantial change in circumstances is substantial enough to deprive a child of a loving father that has never harmed his daughter. What can I do?
  • You aren't going to win but you can certainly get another lawyer and try. In the end, you will have wasted your time and your money and you still won't regain what you lost. (By the way, just how did you violate a court order?) You now have two choices...you can sulk about being robbed of your "rights" or you can work on rectifying your behavior so in a year or so, you may be able to get your visitation back and some portion of custody. In the meantime, you need to adjust your attitude. I know you think it was funny to insult your child's mother but that is considered to be "parental alienation' and that is probably what got you with supervised visitation (you should know that NOTHING is private anymore on the internet). My very best advice to you right now is for you to sign up for parenting classes...and make sure you pass at the top of your class. Further, you should not be late at all for your supervised visitation. You also need to be polite and respectful when referring to your child's mother and if you have a "sense of humor", check it at the door as most judges do NOT have a sense of humor. Then, in six-to-twelve month's time, you can get a lawyer and go back to court for an expansion of your visitation. Good luck and God bless. ***** Addendum: Modification of a order for child custody doesn't always have to benefit the child immediately. In your particular case, you were holding the child's mother up for ridicule and that is not allowed. The judge is allowed to modify the order to prevent the non-custodial party from attempting to alienate the child from his/her primary parent! Addendum #2: You may have wished to reduce the child support order but the judge will take into consideration the best interest of the child, not your wish to pay less in support.
  • That, my friend is why you ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS hire an attorney for court. It doesn't matter what the facts are in a case, the person with a better lawyer will win. Depending on your jurisdiction you should have around 30 days to file an appeal. But, you better get a lawyer for this round. If you can't appeal this order states usually have regulations for how often you can file a motion to modify the visitation agreement.
  • If this is important to you, you will consult your attorney. If this is just a game to you, you should ask strangers online to guess what is best in your situation.
  • Family court orders are NEVER final, and no one would expect to stay in once a week monitored visitation permanently. You need to learn / understand what the judge wants or expects from you to recover unmonitored visitation. It's only going to happen in baby steps, and that would be the first one. Hiring an experienced family court lawyer would be a huge help, if only for this first part. A lawyer can wrangle a step by step plan that the judge agrees would, in time, eliminate the monitor. It will be very difficult for you to navigate through this without an expert's guidance. Good luck.
  • You need to show the court that you are responsible and if you're supposed to pick up your child and drop off your child at exact times then hell or high water do it. I don't think that you got screwed - I think you have a way of looking at things that's a little different than the child's mother. If they all feel like the circumstances with you have changed so significantly that the child may be endangered then you are doing something that is making them feel that way. Making derogatory statements about the mother would not call for such extreme actions like stripping your visitation and having monitored visitation.
  • Yes. Hire an attorney.
  • You are marginal for university with a 3.0 GPA. The change is level of difficulty between CC and real college will come as a shock to you, and you are at some risk of failing. So, do not apply to a competitive university. Also, don't waste your time and money studying Psychology or English as Majors. You will very likely end up unemployed after college. Consider these two private moderate schools: Menlo College Pacific Union College
  • Most of the CSUs will, pepperdine, loyola marrymount, santa clara university, university of SF, Univ of SD might. It would also depend on how many units you have completed, what classes you have completed, how much of your transfer major prerequesites have you finished etc... Private colleges might ask you to submit an SAT or ACT score too, even if you are trying to get in as a junior.
  • After this semester, I will have 30 credits total. I want to transfer to Southern Utah University, and on their website it says that a student only needs 24 credits to transfer. However, I'm not sure if that's for in-state residents or if that applies to out-of-state students as well. Can I transfer with only 30 or do I need the full 60 that California requires?
  • No, you just have to go by what Southern Utah University states. If they say you only need 24 units to transfer in (as an out-of-state student), then that is all you need. When it comes to out-of-state colleges, or private colleges, you just obey what they say. You might wanna check into what lower-divison classes you need to graduate at SUU, so that you can take those lower-division classes at your community college (to save money$$$) BEFORE you transfer. Contrastingly, if you wanted to go to a public CSU or UC California university, transferring from a CA community college, you would need 60 units with the associate degree and certain courses completed.
  • If the requirement says 24 credits than you can transfer. You do not need 60 credits.
  • Call them and ask.
  • Pay varies depending on the district you work for, and if your school is private, charter or public. I work in LAUSD, the biggest district in california - it covers most of Los Angeles. Pay is the same for elementary or secondary. I teach middle school and this is my pay chart: http://certificated.lausd.k12.ca.us/Rese...So take the amount and divide by 12 - we get paid monthly. good luck!
  • Not an unreasonable idea. But unfortunately the compulsory model of education makes that impossible, among other pernicious effects. They have to include ALL children, citizens or not, whether they want to learn or not, no mater how disruptive they are, etc, etc.
  • i want to know the same thing!!!!
  • Hi, My son recently married a girl from the Ukraine. She says she is a registered nurse and her name is on the california list of RN's. Here is my question. Is it possible for this person to be supervisor or director of nursing without ever having taken an anatomy class (she admits this because my daughter was taking an anatomy class and she couldn't answer any questions in my daughters book) and also when I asked her what my son's blood pressure was, she stumbled a bit then said 70 over 35. My son and her have been together for less than a year and she is leaving her job to follow "her" boss who is moving to sacramento. (2 hours away) My son will need to quit his city job. She refuses to work for anyone but this one person. I always thought it was very difficult to pass the RN exam in California, 8 hours of testing etc. She is currently working in a convelescent hospital. Any input on whether it is possible to be what she says she is would be helpful. Thank you.
  • go to www.rn.ca.gov and see the phone number or address of that state board of registered nursing in Sacramento CA. Say you are going to hire and just checking on the fact that she possesses a license. See what they say. It sounds fishy to me. They should tell you, or maybe they are all listed online like doctors are. If you cannot find out anything from them, a private detective would be worth the money since you want to protect your son (but now he might just be mad at you since he wont want to believe it but its your job as a mom) so get the evidence and if you learn she is indeed a registered nurse, then shut up and god help us all if we get sick!
  • I am looking to move to a town in southern california that is diverse racially, ethnically, religiously, and profitably.

I don't want to live in bel air, beverly hills, south la, or compton but someplace where there is diversity and open mindedness.
  • Pasadena. Very diverse in all ways. It's a good place to live if one is low income, lots of good programs, like free after school care, tutoring, programs. Same for middle class, some very good public, charter, and Catholic schools, nice environment, apartments and houses of all sizes. Also, great for high income, beautiful old money mansions, and houses of all styles, some of the best private schools in LA Generally very safe. It seems many people try to make an effort to know others in the community who are different than themselves.
  • i have a couple areas for you. Long Beach is a very diverse city in all aspects. there are rich areas, middle class and ghettos. the rich and middle class areas are more diverse than other wealthy areas in so cal, and they are not as expensive as bel air, beverly hills. great place to live...also consider seal beach/los alamitos/rossmoor. these areas are next to Long Beach and are located in Orange County. Orange county if you didn't know is considered majority white/rich and conservative, which is partially true but because of the proximaty to LA county, the areas i listed are not your conventional OC cities. they are great aeas to live. check em out and do some research. good luck!
  • Carpinteria State sea coast: 12 miles south/east of Santa Barbara. My well-known sea coast is Carpinteria, that's marketed as "the international's maximum secure sea coast". there is lots of sea coast for swimming or physique surfing.

There are relaxing community eating places like the Spot (basically seem for the line of folk on Linden highway), the hands (the place you cook dinner your individual steak), or Giovanni's Pizza (the place they have mind-blowing antipasto salad). there is even an old college candy save called Robitaille's (RO-bah-ties). young little ones will additionally probable like the surf save (Matt Moore's Rincon Designs), and Foster's Freeze... no longer something like a ice cream cone on a heat afternoon.

  • Only in California. In the other 49 states where different Stupid laws are passed, those laws should be followed. I think that it is pretty arogant that just because California passes a law, that many people believe that it should apply to the whole nation... What people ordering office equipment should do is to LEARN HOW TO READ Specifications and do some research before spending money.

  • My boyfriend has been wanting a Mastiff for a while now so I have been looking into local rescues. Gentle Giants is literally in the next town over and they seem to have some dogs he would like. I have heard some bad things about them and I was just wondering your take on it. The distance isn't as much of an issue, I mean we would be willing to drive across state lines to get the right dog. If I should completely avoid them then how do I know if a rescue is good or not? I have seen you guys mention them a time or two before and hopefully someone who knows about this will be on.
  • Oh, the rescue that keeps dogs in filthy conditions, consistently breaks the law, uses "rescue" money on building their private pool & home compared to caring for the dogs, and have been breeding to have "rescue puppies" on a continual basis to bring in more adopters? I apologize if that was blunt, but I am a HUGE advocate of Mastiff breeds and what they are doing is just plain wrong. I don't know why police haven't interfered yet. Any rescue with multiple pages dedicated to them being "horrible", "lying", and "cruel" is kind of a big deal. http://www.gentlegiantnews.com/adopters....http://www.tribe.net/recommendation/DO-N...
  • They are puppy mill in disguise. Don't you think it is a little weird that they almost always have litters of puppies, when rescues almost never have full litters of puppies? Gentle Giant has avoided so much trouble and lawsuits it is sickening. Just because one of the owners was a former celeb, they think they can get away with how they treat the dogs. They are not a rescue never were, they are filthy puppy millers. They are blowing smoke out their asses when they say they will repossess, anyone with half a brain cell knows they can't legally do that. Specially not for something like not feeding the dog the food they suggest. There is a Fila I believe on their website that they claim is 11 months old, well like hell it is the picture they posted shows the dog is more then likely 6-7 or more. They lie about the ages of the dogs more often than not. I do find it funny that most of the pages if not all of the pages that show the name of the adopted dog, do not have pictures of said dog. Also majority of the descriptions used are just copy and pasted.
  • I've never heard anything bad about Mastiffs. The only bad things I can imagine are the bad things that can occur when you own any large dog - big poo-piles, hard smacks on the leg from a wagging tail, bowling over small children, they need more food than smaller dogs and more space to roam around in. SO if you ever plan on moving into an apartment or a home without a yard you may have to give him/her up. EDIT: Maybe I missed something, I thought you were asking if there were bad things about Mastiffs. As far as the center, as long as the dog isn't terminally ill, I think you would want to rescue a dog from there if it was filthy or they mistreated the animals.
  • Yes I have heard of them and I have never heard anything good about them. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;...http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;...http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;...What about Mastiff rescue?

  • It depends on the kind of adoption you want. A closed, private adoption will run you about $30,000-$50,000 depending on the agency and the kind of baby you want. White, male, healthy newborns are the most expensive. I know that because friends of mine adopted one. They paid their money to an agency, told them they only wanted to be called when they had a baby "free and clear" of it's surrendering parents, and ready to go home with them. And that's exactly what they got. 3 months later, they got a call to show up at the hospital with 2 forms of ID and an infant car seat. They brought home a womb wet, white, male newborn, complete with blonde hair and blue eyes! My brother is in the process of foster to adopt through the county. They've been waiting over 2 years for an infant. The aren't out of pocket any money, and there will be tax breaks if they do get a baby to adopt.
  • I need to know where the best place to live in california is? the city must be at the ocean. i should be able to go swimming. it must have plam trees and it should be warm, like 25 degrees and it should have a good education place. so a great private high school with unifrom. Please any ideas? Oh and it should also be an expensive area ( we have enough money) with a good shopping mall and perhaps a forest or a park
  • What does it matter? You live in Germany, and the legal process to immigrate to the United States can take up to 10 years to complete By then you WON'T be in high school or still wanting to be a actress.
  • A minor cannot legally move out to the United States by themselves. Even if they are, your process to move to the United States is not going to be overnight. You will have to wait AT LEAST 7-10 years for your process to be completed, which means you will not be going to that high school you've been wanting to go to (it's not like you were to begin with anyways). It doesn't matter how rich your parents are (pretending that your parents are even rich to begin with), your parents will not be willing to leave everything they have in Germany to move into a foreign country where they know absolutely nobody. And even if they did, your parents are the ones that are going to make the final decision on everything. Not you. It's a really cute fantasy you have there, but I don't buy it for ONE MINUTE.

  • I live in that area. You'll need to be a lot more specific. California is a very expensive place to live. In Riverside County, for example, the average home costs $600,000 and the rents in the area reflect that. The newspaper to look over is "The Press Enterprise" or "The Californian." If money is tight, you may want to consider a roommate situation or look for ads for rooms for rent in private homes. That's your best bet. Both newspapers I mentioned have on-line versions. E-mail me if you think of any thing else I might be able to help you with. Happy hunting!

  • If you will not have completed two years of the same foreign language with semester grades of at least C by the time that you graduate from high school, you will probably need to go to a community college. There is plenty of room in high school schedules for a student to take art and two years of a foreign language. I suggest that you take both to keep your options open. Do not spend money on an expensive private art school. The instruction is at least as good at community college.
  • Let me share my idea with you! When you are not affordable to get whatever you want, it is a prove that you are financially insecure. Work in the private sector is good but, if you are still young try to make money with every single seconds that you have. E.g: Work at home after your working hours or during weekend. Go for the internet business, which requires less of your time and the one that will not make you feel headache with web designing, or which require IT knowledge. Second, choose the internet based company which offer you the opportunity and at the same time giving you the convenience to start the business. Third, choose the business, which does not require big money to start it.

  • Ask for restitution or sue the defendant. But if the guy has no money a civil suit wouldn't do much. Sometimes states have a victim's compensation fund set up for victims of crimes where the defendant has no assets or insurance. The compensation fund usually only covers out of pocket expenses though because it is tax money, and it's meant to help the victim cover costs. Not to get big settlement deals..that's what private civil law suits are for.
  • I live in California. I am about to have a child with a woman who married her ex-boyfriend while she was pregnant with my child. We still get along well and have talked about details surrounding the child out of court and seem to have come upon some agreements, such as child support amount, visitation (she will have custody), and such. Recently, several friends and the mother's midwife suggested for me to talk to an attorney and to see exactly what my rights are as a father so I don't get taken by the mother. A lot of this was brought about by her deciding that she only wants me around 15 minutes a day for the first couple weeks after birth so she and her new husband can rest and adjust. I don't think she can do this if I am the legal father, restrict my contact to my child. Although we have no official paperwork yet (which we will be doing through a private company). Before I spent money on a lawyer, I wanted to see if anyone had idea of the rights of a father in CA. Thanks.
  • Yeah, you probably should get an attorney. You want to make sure through a paternity test that this is indeed your child. You want to make sure she doesn't put her husband's name on the birth certificate as the father as that may sever your rights. If you don't do this in a legal manner, you could get seriously hosed. You want joint custody with her having physical custody? How about being able to take the baby for visitation? What's a fair amount of child support to pay? What if they decide to relocate? You NEED an attorney. Good luck with this.
  • I had a hard time to think about this and started not to answer this. First I am sorry for this and you are angry at her that is the biggest problem here because she left you and it should have been you but she went back to this guy and it sucks as it is. I have to ask you why bother her about this yes it is your child maybe what if it isn't do you know for sure?. The other things is if it is yours then it is up to her to say when you can see him because the baby is an infant and needs her mother and she needs it.. I think you will get hurt out of this one and just maybe you do not want to get to involve this one and tell her that you will walk away from all of this and you will not pay any child support and you will leave her alone totally and that is that and if she say no you will pay then do it through the court no BS
  • Here's the deal. You do have rights as the father of that child, but unless you pursue them through court, don't take the mother's word for granted. I think it's great that the two of you are on speaking grounds, but it's going to change when that baby comes. She is not going to want to part with child for a second and the bonding time cannot be done in 15 minutes honey. That's insane. I know it's going to be hard, especially sicne she's married and all ready to start her new family with this other guy, but take this into consideration..who do you want this child calling daddy? her new hubby? My advice? Get official paperwork. Get visitation before that baby arrives. If she's uncomfortable with you taking the baby (As a mother of 5, I'd completely understand that), then ask for more time...say an hour every other day....then to take the baby for four hours on a Saturday (afterall, you have family too that are going to want to see your new bundle of joy). Do that for the first three months, then up it to taking the baby for three hours three times a week and a full day on Saturday or Sunday...at six months, up it again. Keep with the weekday schedule, but plan for every other weekend for the entire weekend. I know it's a touchy thing, but in a sense, you'll both be adjusting to this and this way, with you spending so much time with the baby, the baby will know you too and won't be so fussy when it comes time for overnights. Explain this to the mom to be. Tell her your concerns. Tell her that you have no intentions of denying her time with her family, but that you would like to play a big role in this baby's life as well and that means you need your time to bond with him/her too. Then get it ALL in writing, because like the flip of a switch, these things can go terribly wrong without paperwork. And yes, this is perfectly legal, you are well within your rights to ask for this and believe it or not, as long as you use the words "in the child's best interests", I have a hard time believing a judge would not grant you the visitation you seek. Not many men are willing to step up to the plate and take responsibility....You are doing a good thing here hon...you are going to make a great dad!
  • As long as you are paying child support you have every right to see that child every other weekend. Make sure you have documentation that your paying child support. But you have to take her to court to get a judge to oder this. Good Luck

  • A law requiring that two laws are stricken from the books for each new law or regulation passed. This would eliminate all lesser, and unimportant laws. Similarly, for each new tax dollar raised; two dollars must be eliminated from less necessary programs. This would eliminate government corruption, waste, get rid of pork, and free up money in the private sector to create viable jobs, new wealth, and stay competitive in the global market.
  • People that build houses on cliffsides, earthquake faults, unstable hillsides, and/or deep in the woods are no longer allowed to express any sort of outrage, surprise, dismay, or sorrow when that house slides into the ocean, falls down, or is consumed by a forest fire. I figure this will cut news coverage of ordinary Californians by half.

  • Santa Clara University is a hidden gem of a school, which should be better known. It is a good alternative for students in Northern California who cannot get into Stanford or Berkeley. Ostensibly, SCU is a Jesuit-run school, but that doesn't mean much anymore... "Catholic" universities today are mostly post-Christian. Don't waste your time, or your parents' money, studying Psychology.
  • i cant really give you all the pros and cons of either. but USC is really high ranked and very respected. its in LA! all i know about santa clara is that...its in santa clara which is a really boring place, personally. just a bunch of old, rich people. LA=second biggest city in the country

  • Michelle: One very important concern to keep in mind - if you have taken out any student loans that have an "in-school deferment", that deferment will end when you leave school. When the deferment ends, a 6-month "grace period" kicks in, and when that 6 months is up, your repayment obligation begins. In-school deferment is a feature of all of the Federal Student Loan programs (Stafford, PLUS, Perkins), and many of the private loans, as well. If you have received any form of financial aid up until now, I would definitely recommend that you make an appointment with a financial aid counselor, who can review your aid history, and give you individually tailored advice on how a year off might impact your aid situation. They may also have some other ideas about various types of aid that have been available to you that you may not have tapped into yet. Good luck to you - I hope your parents' financial situation improves in the very near future.
  • If you haven't taken any loans out then you can take a year or how ever much time you need to save for school. I know there are many people who are telling you that they took time off and that it will be hard to get back into it, but honestly you are the only person who knows whether it will be hard or not. Your taking time off school for a good reason, not because you are bored, etc. If you are motivated, which i'm assuming you are since you got through two years already, then you'll be fine. I had to take a year off because of personal reasons after my sister and niece were murdered and i'm right back in school. My school withdrew me for the semester with the "intention to return" and when I was ready I paid 20 bucks to re-enroll and that was that. I was back in the system and i'm back in classes. So, your university is most likely like mine. You have nothing preventing you from taking some time off to save up. Actually that's pretty admirable that your doing that to help out your family. Plus imagine you going to school and putting extra strain on your family and you get so stressed out about it that you do badly in your classes. Your the only one in the end who has to really choose since you do have options to take out loans to help pay, etc. Good luck!
  • If you have to then it's not like you have a choice. But have you checked into student loans etc. It's really hard for most people to go back to school once they stop. Hope you are motivated enough to finish however you do it.
  • Worst case scenario, take out personal loans and get done with school.
  • thats what i did..one year, turned into 2..now im going back, apply for financial aide..do a work study or something, youre so close to being done, dont stop now! fastweb.com has TONS of scholarships/contests/grants..a bunch of things that will get you money for college
  • He's for the "Green" bill which will virtually destroy jobs here in California. Also, he didn't do the right thing when he didn't fire any of the state workers. Private industry has shed tens of thousands of jobs while not one state government worker has been laid off or fired. AND we the tax payers have to continue to paying into the government workers' pension fund! Why do we have to bust our butts off to make sure that they get to retire comfortably?! I work hard too. Where's my "bailout?" As for the new candidates, I don't like any of them. NONE of the candidates support the movement that will force our legislators to work part time status like many of the other states in the union do: http://www.reformcal.com/cms/index.php?p...NONE have put in one dime into this effort. So if any of these people were to become governor, he/she would be rendered impotent (just like Schwarzenegger) by the CA legislature. So they're all a waste of a vote! Have any of you done your CA taxes yet? Look how much extra you have to pay this year because of our legislature! BE SURE TO SIGN THE PETITION in the above link! * * *

  • On the California Firearms Roster each gun has it's own exp date. http://certguns.doj.ca.gov/ And here there is a list of firearms that are over due on there exp date and are removed from the Roster: http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/forms/pdf/removed.pdf But there are two things that bother about this list. 1) If somebody already owns a gun that is removed from the roster would that be illegal? 2) Would these gun be put back on the roster legally, or have there exp date renewed?
  • There is no expiration date. The dates are the date that the status of the hand gun was changed from approved to disapproved (or disapproved to approved). The statement on the referenced web site: "Private party transfers, curio/relic handguns, certain single-action revolvers, and pawn/consignment returns are exempt from this requirement." means that only commercial sales and manufacturing is prohibited on the de-certified guns. It seems like they just about listed every damn hand gun made in America! Are they becoming just like NY and NJ? Seems like Smith & Wesson paid the state legislators big money to get their hand guns added to the approved list. Five S&Ws made the approved list. All of the other 1326 makes and models are on the disapproved list. By the way, not one gun law on the books is honored by the criminal element.
  • The simplest thing to do is have the higher wage partner claim all the exemptions that they are entitled to on the W-4, and have the lessor wage partner claim Single zero. The tables are pretty good at a straight salary, no Sch-A, but will grossly under withhold a second job by the tables. This compensates for it. If this seems unfair to the lessor wage earner (it is), then have some financial private arrangement to give him or her money.
  • It is not a big deal. If is a matter of personal preference really. Do you like a large tax refund at the year end or do you want to break even? If you want the big refund, both of you should claim married and zero. If you want to break even, you should both claim married and one.

  • well, coming from orange county (NOT THE OC!!!!!!! THEY FILM IN FREAKIN MALIBU FOR GOODNESS SAKES!!!!!!!!) i love a short dress. one tyhat goes to the knee, but is cut off really curt. i do like the ones that are short in front and long in back, but i'm not the biggest fan of them. i also love turquise-ey blue-ish colors. pinks are also good. too many people wear black and red. whatever happend to ALL the colors of the rainbow? i also love oranges, and silk, or something shiny! bright colors are the way to go!!!!! also, dresses that are "Cinched" on the sides or in the middle to create the ripple effect are great for diguising tummy bulges!!, add some diamonds and your good to go!!! i also love dresses that are affordable. i do go to a private school, but that doesn't mean i have money. if it was handmade i would probably pay more, depending on how good the dress is.
  • I'm from Ohio, but i'm 19 and live here in SoCal. My hubby is a Marine and I would have loved to have a dress made especially for me for the Marine Corps. ball!!! Anyways, to me if it's a formal occassion it should be long, although I know it's kind of trendy to wear shorter. As for the style, some girls I think would go for a more modest look, but I like a more vuluptuous, sexy look. Not revealing, but form-fitting.... Showing off curves in all the right places, so to speak. I like an hourglass silhouette. And I love red. Moneywise, I would pay more for a dress especially made for me rather than one bought off the rack. Depending on the quality and materials used, probably around 250-600.
  • I think shorter dresses are in now, with more flare at the bottom and a fitting shape on the waste. I would probably spend 200-300, especially if it was handmade and could be fitted to me. Also, if it's more distinct- I think that would make it even better.
  • McDonald's can no longer get replaced. constructive there meals is of questionable high quality, yet damn no count if that's no longer scrumptious. while Mickey D's sees a competitor as a threat they strengthen a clean menu merchandise to entice back purchasers. think of of the iced coffee marketing campaign, angus beef burgers, and now this new southern chicken sandwich. McDonalds has a ringer - the fries. for many, consisting of myself, there is none greater effective than McDonalds fries. as long as they strengthen comprable menu products the fries will convey human beings back to McDonalds each time.
  • In the past 30 years we have doubled the amount of money spent on education - and not seen any improvement in the education our cheidren recieve. In California private schools outperform public schools in virtually every performance measure - and do it for half the cost per student. The reason that private schools outperform public schools is very simple - they either succeed or go out of business. The biggest issue we have with our education system is that there is no single person who can be held accountable for school performance. In addition the people with the least input into what kind of education chhidren recieve are the parents. If you really want to improve education - start a petition drive for school vouchers. Make the schools accountable for thier performance and let better schools thrive and the poor schools go out of business.
  • Firstly, recognize the root of the problem: the NEA (the teacher's union) gives 95% of its political contributions to socialists -- I mean Democrats; our entire education system is run by America-hating teachers where our kids learn about Washington owning slaves and us dropping the atom bomb and America being greedy but not a damned thing about the value of individualism or property rights or how much Americans have sacrificed for the advancement of freedom, worldwide. Second...I'm too PO to proceed. Never again vote for a socialist -- I mean Democrat.
  • I agree with the other answers stating one could become a teacher or professor as those professions have direct long term contact with students. I perhaps, offer a different approach everyone could take advantage of since everyone may not have the skills, time, or aptitude to become a teacher. Please consider becoming a volunteer at your local school. If we all simply walked into the office of our local school and asked where they needed assistance they will find something pairing your skills with their needs. Some folks may not be strong at math but are great at reading and could tutor a student in the library. Others may be wonderful handymen and could offer a hand to the custodial staff with their never ending "to-do" list. Finally, for those who are dedicated and are willing to provide guidance, leadership, and vision, many schools have steering committees for technology, departments, grants they were provided, etc. and are in need of public input. Some of those committees actually require input from individuals who do not have students attending the school (while others require active parents). Put simply, ASK! Schools are in desperate need of volunteers and regardless of what your availability, skills, and abilities are you will be highly respected, regarded, and are required at your school. They need you (that includes those of you who may be unemployed right now. In between searching for jobs and interviews, donating an hour or two of your time looks great on a resume and it helps the community greatly).
  • same way we were supposed to keep the presidents in check, scrutiny. Isn't this a great example of what happens when we don't.
  • You could start going to school board meetings and voicing your opinion, and maybe eventually run for board member. Or you could join the PTA. There are other organizations as well that advocate for education.
  • Become a teacher or professor, be the solution.
  • Become a great teacher.
  • It is a private, pretty high ranked school if that makes it any better. I am just pretty bummed out about it because it's going to be a lot of money, and I'm from California and I hate being away from it. (The school is Boston College, if anyone's heard of it). Does it really matter? I feel like a lot of my friends will be located there after they graduate anyway.
  • When we attended Parent Orientation at one of California's most prestigious UC's, we were forewarned to expect "a 5-year plan" for some majors, and "a 6-year plan" for others. As it was, our daughter finished in under 4 but we have other family members who got their Bachelors after 5.5 years. As far as BC goes it's highly regarded and definitely looks good on the resume!
  • Just ask yourself; "If I don't attend this school, what will I be doing 5.5 years from now." By the way, I'm from Boston and you will be attending one of the best schools America has to offer. Good luck.
  • Save up, and go back for the christmas' breaks, or thankgivings. I know how you feel... i gotta be in school, another 2years, but ima double phase to cut it to 1. At same time i gotta juggle work, and my life. But thats how to rolls, and rolls, and rolls, and rolls, and rolls, and rolls,

  • USC is a private school, not a public college. If you can afford the money or if you have great self disciple maybe it would be a great choice for you. There will be less funding in the coming years for college than there has been in the past because the economy is in such turmoil. If funding is an issue for you, start looking at some of the public colleges around the same area UCLA, UC, Riverside, California State, Los Angeles, Cal Poly, Pomona, Cal State, San Bernardino. Even though the tuition will be higher now it will still be no where near the cost of private colleges.
  • Depending on where you live, the starting salary for an EMT-Basic working for a private ambulance company is an average of $15 per hour. In California, most EMT programs require you to have a CPR for Healthcare providers certification. For more information on obtaining this certification, visit the Red Cross website and search for CPR for Healthcare Providers. As an instructor for the American Red Cross, this course is about 6 and a half hours long and covers CPR, AED, First Aid, Oxygen administration and inhalers. Good luck with your training!
  • Well i want to get homeschooled i live in San diego California and im in 7th grade and well i dont want my mom to teach me i want a tutor to teach me because i am a really smart person and well when im around people i just cant focus and if they move me to an area were i dont talk i learn ALOT so i think homeschooling would be the best choise for me and also how do i start and i dont want it to be expensive and no online courses but whats better public private or homeschooling and if im homeschooled im not worried of not socializing because i can still keep contact with my old friends also how does homeschooling work...how many hours is it how many days a week things like that does an adult have to be with me when a teacher is tutoring how will i sociolize with other home schooled kids please help and no rude answers thanks (=
  • The cheapest route is to homeschool on your own or with parents. Tutors are pricey. If you are planning on having a tutor be prepared to shell out the money for the Tutor and for the curriculum. You can go thru a Charter School which is free, but you will be at home. Online schooling is also expensive. So I would say if you aren't wanting to spend much your best bet is to either do it on your own or join up with the Charter School and have everything provided for you.
  • Hi, there. Our daughter, who is 13, is also homeschooled. She has, at last count, 7 teachers, including herself. She takes multiple classes, participates in a variety of groups, volunteers with horses and kids, and has a paying job. She has many more friends than she had when she was in school - both through homeschooling groups, other groups in which she particpates, and just by making friends in the neighborhood. There are some laws in California pertaining to homeschooling - you have to be in compliance with these laws: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/answer...San Diego has lots of opportunities for you.

  • A family of 4 in, let's say either Orange County, California, or Long Island New York, would need to earn how much to: -Have a comfortable, tastefully furnished 4 bedroom home over 3000 square feet in area. -At least 2 late model vehicles, one a SUV and the other a European sedan like a BMW -2 children in private or parochial schools -A summer cottage near a lake or ocean -A boat of medium size -a couple vacations a year -dinner out at least once or twice a week -enough income to pay all the bills with some extra to invest -never having to concern themselves too often with financial matters -more than enough income to put something away for a comfortable retirement, the kid's college funds, a rainy day fund, and some extra to play the market. In essence, to live a comfortable, upper-middle-class lifestyle, free from most financial worries. Give me a good estimate or range of how much before taxes one would need to earn to afford such a life in NY/LA
  • Well, a lot depends on exactly which municipality you end up living in. Long Island is a big place, so is Orange County. But, let's take a shot at what you are looking at: Mortgage, around $500-$700K, should set you back around $4000 a month, plus taxes/insurance 2 cars, looking at around $500 a month ea, maybe $750 combined if you get a good rate and buy used versus new. 2 kids in private school, will set you back $1500 a month, maybe $1000, tough to say. Summer cottage. Looking at $300K+ depending on where you get it, and what you want. Financing it with 20% down will set you back around $2000 a month taxes and insurance included. Boat, let's say $20K, 10 year financing plus insurance and maintenance, let's say you are looking at $250 a month 2 vacations for 4 a year, at around $6000 per vacation, looking at around $1000 a month Dinner out, 4 times a month at $200 ea, looking at another $800 a month paying the bills, looking at around $1200 a month includes utilites for a 3000 ft house, cable TV, internet, etc... groceries for 4, well that is around $300 a week, depends on what you like to eat, so $1200 a month Totaling the above up: Your monthly expenses will be around $11,950 a month. Extra to invest, let's say that should be around 10% of your take home before bills. Works out to: $1,327 for savings. Adding that on: You would need a net monthly income of $13,278 to live like you describe above. That is a yearly income of $159,333 after taxes, or around $227K before taxes. Of course, what you describe above is a pretty luxurious lifestyle, and your monthly expenses could be significantly reduced through several easy steps. First, drop the cottage. Saves you $2K a month. Then the vacations, only travel for one a year, another $500 a month. Do you really need a luxury car? Sure, they are nice, but they are pricey. Get a nice late model car that is $10K less, and save another $250 a month. Brings your monthly expenses down to around $10,500, or $126K a year net/$180K a year gross.
  • I would say a dual doctor salary, highly paid private practice doctor's salaries (like plastic surgeons) close to 2 mil, should cover it. Maybe a 2.5 mil. At the spending rate you propose, your left over income will even out to about $3.75 bucks an hour in a 80 hour work week.
  • Well if it's based off of a family of four.. with 2 working parents, I would think they need to have a combined income of at least 450k.. keepin in mind all those OTHER things you've mentioned
  • 1 -1 1/2 million per year. 2 would be better. Taxes may kill you and you may need more. Actually you will need more after 2009. IRS Could be 35-40 %. Plus state. That is not a high estimate in those localities.
  • A lot of money. And I'd call it an upper class lifestyle, not an upper middle class lifestyle.
  • 450K if you are going to RENT said 3000sqft house. 2M if you are going to BUY 3000sqft house.
  • I sold my car and the buyer is coming to me with complaints after a month and a half. I had it smog certified (which I know is required in CA) and allowed buyer to test drive. Odometer was correct and the car has a clean title as promised. The Bill of Sale does not specify "As Is" but I made no guarantee either. If taken to court, is "As Is" implied/assumed on a sale like this in California?
  • I believe for a private seller, it is assumed sold 'as-is', that why people pay money to shop to inspect it. Beside, you don't what the f they did to the car. Tell them, "sorry I can't help you, I'm not a dealer, used cars are sold as is."
  • Yes, it is presumed. But why didn't you write in it ? 99% of the people who threaten to sue over such things, don't. The 1% that does sometimes wins because the seller does not show up. Happened to me over a $80 deposit. They went to court, I didn't show because my time was worth more than $80. They won a judgment for $80 plus court costs. I found out a few years later it was on my credit report. Didn't cause me a single problem. After 7 years, it fell off on its own and I never paid a penny of the $80 or the court costs. Tell him to stop calling and to sue you if he wants. If he keeps calling have him arrested for harassment. Your chance of losing, if your bill of sale did not mention a warranty, and you show up to court and don't cuss out the judge is 97%+. You can never say 100% because judges would prefer to side with car buyers especially against dealers. Most of the time, they cant.
  • Yes, in the absence of a written warranty, all private party car sales are considered "as is" transactions. It is the buyers responsibility to determine the condition of the car before they buy it. Tell them to go pound sand. They can sue you, but they aren't going to win.
  • Sounds to me like you did everything ok. The DMV website has a Buyers Rights which I linked for you.
  • I know this sounds like a dumb question but hear me out. There are these tree squirrel's in on my property that have been causing damage to my property. What they do is they chew a hole into the house then make nests in the attic. They also do several other things which costs me money in repairs. So I have a high powered pellet gun which can easily kill on in one shot. Can I legally shoot an kill them? I have a hunters license, btw. Thanks. Oh and I looked up my local laws and could find nothing of this matter.
  • There is only one alternative for you. Since it is California you can't risk breaking a law or an ordinance.that may cost you a hefty fine. This is what you need to do. Squirrels are easily trapped.Buy a couple of Hav-a-Hart traps and bait with corn or bird seed. Catch them and transport them far far away Keep the traps out and baited for other squirrels that may move in. This is your only workable legal solution. Here is a link to their website- http://www.havahart.com/store/live-anima...
  • Whether or not you could do it legally would all depend on your local laws. It's different everywhere. Why don't you try just humanely trapping them and releasing them somewhere else? That way you will stand less of a chance of getting into trouble and the squirrels should be able to at least stand a chance of having a healthy and happy life afterwards.
  • Avoid shooting them. Just due to the fact that you will most likely be breaking some local law about shooting a weapon within so many feet of a building, as others have said. Go to your local home centre store and get one of those live catch traps and release them in a local park or woods. Just to be on the safe side you should look into the laws regarding wildlife relocation. After all you do live in California. Enough said.
  • Shooting the pellet gun within the city limit might get you in trouble IF a neighbor call it in. Being in California there's also the Fruitcake Factor where animal rights loonies might just decide to picket your house for the news spotlight. You could stay out of sight and shoot the squirrels and make it hard for anyone to pinpoint you or you could get a cat. My neighbor's two cats nearly wiped-out the squirrel population on my street all within 6 months.
  • just trap them. i had one cut a hole in my house too. put out a trap and had him in 2 days. turned him loose in the park with about a million other squirrels. my dad has a dozen pecan trees in his yard. one year the squirrels got just about all of them. nect year he put out a trap and caught 8 in about 2 weeks. turned them all loose at the state park. there is just no reason to kill a squirrel when they are so easy to relocate. there are laws that allow for the killing of animals when they are damaging crops or property, but the first step is to call the game ranger so he can come out and verify damage, even then, in this case, the game ranger will tell you that there is no need to kill this squirrel, because trapping them and relocating them is so easily done.
  • well, depends on where your property is, state state your in and it's laws, it may be legal to kill the squirrel, but firing the pellet gun within the limits of other houses may be a different thing, your state may have a minimum firing distance from building that would make you shooting at the squirrels illegal, also, many states have restrictions on what you can hunt squirrels with. your question is a case of lack of info, no state mentioned in the question, a common mistake, but makes the rest of your question useless without knowing where you are since all states have different hunting laws, in one way or another.
  • It depends on where you are, what the local ordinances are, and in some cases, what type of squirrel they are as some are protected species in some areas. IF they are costing you too much in repairs, you might get an exterminator or pest control person to trap them and remove them.
  • Here's how I look at it... If they are doing damage kill them. If like you say you are spending hundreds on repairs any ticket you get for hunting out of season will be worth it, Plus you may have an affirmative defense if you can show invoices for the repairs/materials to repair.
  • On it's face, this appears to be legal, but many cities ban any discharge of pellet guns. You need to call the city attorney for positive confirmation. If your neighbors aren't tattle tales and snoops, no one will ever know.
  • find a spot where your hidden then kill them. that way noone will see you with the gun. Then chuck the squirels in the bush. Problem solved. Or buy rat traps and set them up whereever the damage is being done. That will take are of those varmints
  • For those who question my understanding of the bill. Here are the bullet point: It would prohibit retaliation against employees who discuss or ask about pay at work. It would allow employees to challenge pay discrimination based on wages paid to other workers at different worksites of the same employer. For example, a female grocery store clerk who works at a store could challenge higher wages being made by male grocery store clerks at a store owned by the same employer just a few miles away.
  • It would require employers to show that differences in wages are due to factors other than gender, that the factor is job-related and reasonable, and that these factors – rather than discrimination – account for the difference in pay. For example, if a male chef is making more money than a female chef because he works weekend shifts, the employer would have to show that the weekend shifts are busier and require more work and account for the difference in wages.
  • no
  • Your personal information at work is also the personal information of the people who write the checks. They can publish your salary if they want to and no state or federal law can legally prevent them, unless the employer happens to be a government agency and has a compelling reason for such secrecy. As with any other state legislature, a proposed bill is far from being law. I wouldn't get my panties in a bunch over it, if I were you.
  • I'd like to see the law first before commenting, you could have oversimplified and the law relates to child support or spousal support. Since Forbes prints lists of its CEO and executive board salaries each year I can't see where that kind of information is protected by any privacy in the Constitution.
  • That information is NOT protected by the Consitution, never has been. In fact for a lot of employees, it is actually law (and has been for years) that salary be made public. This applies to executives at publicly traded corporations as well as every Government employee at any level.
  • No. Non-disclosure agreement should be kept regardless of who is asking the question. For more work related issues, read posts from this blog from career and salary research site called PayScale, http://bitly.com/1omMNdz .
  • You probably misinterpreted the proposition. Probably they mean a woman with a valid and legal reason like a woman seeking child support, or the man's wife. In any case, port a valid link so we can confirm your claim.
  • Surely such a law outlines under what circumstances they can ask, such as in a child support case.
  • I would love to see a copy of that bill. I am guessing that it is relation to child support but is not gender specific
  • Most wives know, how much their husband makes, by looking at their pay stubs.
  • Of course not and I would have to actually see such a bill to beleive it is real.
  • California is such a disgusting liberal state it sickens me. This law they are trying to pass is bs
  • the salary varies from agency to agency or with the private sector. the agency i work for in california starts with 2,800.00 a month. depending on your education.
  • Not much. I am a practitioner working 4 days per week (UK) with some bits over sometimes. Rates differ slightly from place to place & also for age. About 6-7.50 pounds sterling per hour, not a straight wage really. You'll have to negotiate with the manager. You probably wont be able to raise the rate unless you're very good though. Good luck.
  • Wow, I want to work at Peach's school! I'm a lead teacher, ECD degree, Liberal Arts degree, and a Montessori diploma, and I make $13/hour.
  • Apply to some of the lower ranked private schools. You don't have a shot at the state schools; your GPA and SAT scores are too low even for their own residents, and it's harder to get in from out of state. But frankly, you're wasting your money. Your scores say you probably won't benefit from college (fail/drop out rate is high with your grades) and it's going to be very expensive to attend college and live there. You can always move there after you get a job or a degree.
  • You could try a community college and then transfer to a university. Santa Cruz is a wonderful area. I recommend Cabrillo college.
  • You don't have to hire a private investigator. I would advise you to find the money for an attorney to protect yourself, though. Depending on the state you're in, you'll file the papers for divorce like you would if he were available. You'll need to contact all of his friends, family, etc. and keep a log as to when you contacted them and how. In California, a simple phone call works. If you're still unable to locate him, then you'll ask the judge for permission to do a published summons. You'll have to publish the summons in a newspaper with a particular amount of circulation for 30 days. Once done, you'll do a prove up in court which will show that you've published the summons. If there's been no reply then, depending on the state, the judge may authorize the divorce. The reason why I advise you to get an attorney is that they will explain how to protect yourself if he attempts to serve you later or ever try to come back on you in another legal forum. I did and I'm glad that I did as when my ex showed up 6 years later he tried to serve me divorce papers! I had to show the court in another state that I had the marriage dissolved almost four years prior. Thank goodness I had as well or I would've ended up in serious debt! Good luck!
  • Have him served by process of publication. This is when you publish in a certain section of your local paper, your intentions and your quest to locate him. Each state has their own guidelines governing this.
  • I think what you do is place an ad in the newspaper. Call your local paper and see what they say. It is like you are giving him notice of the divorce. You can proceed without him after that.
  • Legally, you can be any age to buy a used car from a private party! However I believe the minimum age from most dealers is 18. Your best bet is to just bring a parent or just call the dealer and ask. But if you just want to buy a car from a private seller, I'm sure they would sell it to you if you have the money (again I would still bring a parent).
  • The regulation in California is you need to be 18 with a purpose to purchase a vehicle. Sales humans in California can free their earnings license for seeking to promote a vehicle to a minor. Maybe you must incorporate your father and mother in in this topic earlier than you keep to your travel. Good Luck !

  • I live in California and I have a princess cut diamond ring I bought and was appraised for $5500($5000 for diamond which is 1 ct and $500 for band) at Shane Co.. I also have a platinum ring with a diamond in it that is appraised at $3500. I'm looking to sell but not sure what the market reads.. Anyone that knows the best place to sell please tell.. Also would I at least get half?
  • well you would buy it retail for about 1/2 of appraised amount. and we know you cannot sell it for retail. I think a private party would pay about 1/4 or 1/3 of retail. So 1/6 or 1/8 of appraised amount. So I think that $5,500 diamond ring you can sell for $700-$1,000. Try and sell it on Craig List and find out.
  • They cannot stay beyond the date of the stamp in their passport Pick a visa There are basically NINE ways that you can get a visa to live and work in the US: (1) Marriage (or engagement in anticipation of marriage) to a US citizen. (2) You have skills that are in short supply in the US e.g. scientific or medical training. A degree is normally a must. Or you have superior specialist skills with at least 12 years experience. (H visas) (3) You have an Employer who is willing to transfer you - but even the employer has to make a good case for you - so you have to be a manager unless you fall under category (2) above.(L visas) (4) You may get a Green card in the diversity lottery (UK citizens, except N.Ireland, are not generally eligible unless you, your spouse or parents were born abroad or held a different citizenship. (5)You own or buy business (does not get you permanent resident status i.e. no green card)You must be a national of a qualifying Treaty countries. The business must have a minimum value of around $150k (more the better) bearing in mind you will need somewhere to live and with any startup business you will need at least 2 years living money as back up. So a figure of $350k would be a nearer minimum (E-2 visas) (6)You are an "investor" i.e. you have at least US $1m in assets to bring with you. half of that in a few areas. And your background will be investigated to the hilt. (EB-5 visas) (7)You have a close relative (mother, father, brother, sister and no further) who is an US citizen who would sponsor you, approx time this take 2-12 years? (8.The R1 visa is available to foreign members of religious denominations, having bona fide non-profit religious organizations in the U.S., for entering the U.S. to carry on the activities of a minister or religious worker as a profession, occupation or vocation (9)THE UNUSUAL You are in a position to claim refugee status/political asylum. or You get a member of Congress to sponsor a private bill with legislation that applies just to you. The S visa issued to persons who assist US law enforcement to investigate and prosecute crimes and terrorist activities such as money laundering and organized crime Recruitment agent will not take you seriously if you are not already in the US. Writing for jobs is really a waste of time; likewise US employers have no idea what foreign qualification are or mean (except Degrees) it may pay you to get your qualification translated into a US equivalent, there are Companies that do this (www.wes.org) .. But if you are getting a visa under (2) above then you need a job offer before you can get the visa. Your Employer will be your sponsor this will cost them upward of $5k. So you can see you have to be offering something really special to get considered They may also have to prove to the Dept of labor that there is no American who can do the job if the position is to be permanent ©
  • They can stay as long as the CBP officer at the border allows them to. If they come with a Visa Waiver, the maximum stay would be 90 days; if they come with a B2 visa, the maximum stay would be 6 months. There is no way for a visitor to become a resident.
  • They can stay up to 6 months. No way for them to become a legal resident unless they marry a citizen.
  • Sponsorship by family, sponsorship by job, visa lottery.What country are they comming from?
  • Just one - heterosexual marriage.
  • Si!
  • The first answer is wrong. In Michigan, it is the Secretary of State. In California, and most other states, it is the DMV. In Texas, it is the Department of Public Safety. And you have to pay in all states. You take the money and the title to the DMV (or other government agency), fill out the registration forms, and pay the money.
  • You have to go to the secretary of state and get one. And you have to buy it. Make sure you have the title of the car in your name too.
  • California is home to over 230,000 unionized public employees, 40,000 of whom are making six figures, and who's combined unpaid pension benefits are estimated to be over $150 BILLION! In a state with a $20 billion per year spending deficit, 12% "official" unemployment, and the highest tax rates in the union, how on earth are the taxpayers of California going to be able to continue this way? And for that matter, why should we? http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424...http://blog.heritage.org/2011/02/28/gove...http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/23/busine...
  • We would be the Greece of the European Union. The unions and the politicians have sweet pensions, meanwhile the private sector is on life support as a result of the unfriendly business climate. In addition we have the stampedes of illegals and transients which burden our generous welfare system and government programs. Don't worry though, in an effort to cut costs and save the pensions the Democrats have decided to let convicts out early or send them to local county jails instead of state prisons.
  • My suggestion is to MOVE! Leave the state with nothing but Medicinal Marijuana users and Liberal Unionists waiting for their 6 figure retirement checks at age 50. That would be my suggestion. I just checked for jobs in Missouri---23,084 NEW Jobs on one website alone in the KC Missouri area. SO I checked Real Estate in KCMO---2300 houses for sale in the $50k to $100k range. We are talking $300-500 per month and $100/month property tax. MOVE!! Thank you for pointing out a very real problem even though most of the responders will never understand the the complexity or impact of California's rampant spending and Liberal Policies.
  • You forgot to include the cost of illegals.
  • it's a recession... to talk about long term issues and use recession numbers... is like trying to plan your retirement when you're unemployed... it's just silly... the first step to any long range planning is to get real numbers that aren't impacted by a recession...
  • Hey man, this is America! All they have to do is move to Nevada or wherever they wish. Leaving behind those who want to pay.
  • They can't. Why do you think California is broke?
  • Since when are union workers "entitlements"?
  • We Can't.
  • Everyone in the U.S. and in other countries is familiar with all of these. So you can go to any of them and you will have prestige. Columbia and Yale are private so they will cost a lot of money. I would go to UCLA or Berkeley if you can get in because they are public universities and cost less. There really is not a lot of difference in high academic rating between them. 1. Columbia 2. UC Berkeley 3. Yale 4. UCLA
  • If you don't know the differences, I doubt you will get into any of them. That being said, most would consider Ivy League schools like Columbia and Yale more prestigious than a UC school.
  • So in united statesa. college = Uni in England. In England college = severe college in united statesa. college and Univerisity? the comparable issues. in basic terms a school has greater credentials, standards, this is greater beneficial off and such. in specific cases individuals do "twin Enrollment," this is attending "Uni" (in united statesa., customary as college or college), whilst in "college" (In united statesa., customary as severe college). this is purely taking some classes whilst additionally going to "college" (back, in united statesa., customary as severe college). you go away severe college at sixteen and visit varsity, then visit Uni at 18. it fairly is known for you. We purely go away severe college slightly later, frequently at 17/18/19. Then we visit varsity/college. college's are frequently harder to get into, so we choose for greater beneficial educational credentials. Why do we go away so late? simply by fact this is our perception that the greater years we are in, the greater mature we are able to alter into, the greater educational/social/paintings journey we could have, and so on. From all my pals from international extensive, just about all of my pals exterior of the U. S. are greater mature at 15/sixteen and up in age, than my American pals at 17 and up in age.
  • I am currently a student in junior college majoring in animation and visual effects, that wants to go into film. I am looking for a college to transfer to in California, But I am open to other options out of state. I'm not looking to transfer to some private or "specialty" school that will snatch up my money with a quick Sign of a contract. I've already been there. If anyone has any advise or suggestions please feel free to leave your words of wisdom.
  • A public "Film School" may snatch up your money more slowly than a private/specialty school, but it's still gone. For most graduates, Film School is a total waste of time and money.

From what you're in seek of for, it sounds like it is the perfect extra healthful. they are between the luxurious song faculties interior the country, and characteristic plenty emphasis on appearing and high quality arts like pictures. look them up and do your learn. although, in case you relatives earnings is under $50/year you could now visit UTA for unfastened.
  • MSNBC, Nov 3, 2004: $3,000,000,000 bond issue (Proposition 71 to fund embryonic stem cell research) was passed by California voters. No positive results two years later. Why should Missouri go BEYOND this with an irreversible CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT to fund embryonic stem cell research, when ADULT stem cell research has already proven effective on many diseases and infirmities, and is improving at a swift pace?
  • It was just a political boondoggle. Whatever chances there are for research advances would go forward with private R&D money. When they do make a breakthru, we will still pay thru the nose for the drugs.
  • I plan on going to Culinary school because I want to be a chef BUT I am only 17 years old and I can not attend Culinary school YET! I really want to know the basics so are there any free or community colleges offering cooking classes for minors? Any cooking classes for people who want a hobby who are not old enough to go to culinary school yet in California? Thanks :)
  • Who told you that you could not start culinary school if you were only 17? My son started at 16. He had already graduated early from high school at 16 and wanted to go to learn to be a pastry chef - so he did. And yes, community colleges do have culinary arts - I'm in Los Angeles BTW. And, we have 3 community colleges with culinary arts programs just in a 30 mile radius. What you want to do is use this website for finding a school - you are better off not going to a high end school (aka non-private culinary arts school - private schools are about $24,000) - that's very expensive if you have to pay for it yourself (or if your parents have to pay - saves a lot of money). www.collegeboard.com Follow the steps to get your location, area of study, etc. etc. etc. The site when then show you where you schools are located, cost, pre-requisits (if any), and so on. I couldn't afford to send him to private chef school so he went to a community college and it was just as good as private school. You will be very surprised how many public schools offer culinary arts. The only requirement for a minor going to any college or trade school is they have to get the department head's approval - but as long as you are a serious student and not doing to be a disruption in the class, they are going to let you in.... So, you have no excuses - get out there and start your chef training! Good luck! PS - Those community colleges get some great student discounts for your chef uniforms, knives, pastry kits, etc. Because you have to have all this stuff while you are in school - not just when you graduate.
  • Its not over but doesnt look good. its not surprising though because Anyone who grows illegally for illegal revenue would never want it legal. That would mean there losing money.. **** the greedy bastards. also you got a big group who dont want pot grown by private corporations.
  • **** Faizan A-****...prop 19 passing or not does not have anything to do with this dude smoking weed or not. It should'nt pass cuz you can legally have a card if your 18 and cards will be removed if it passes and the age will be 21. You know anyone over 21 can go to jail for a max of 7 years if they puff puff passed to a buddy who's underage. Dayuuum son..get ur facts straight..Faizan muthafuckin A-****.
  • LOL @ Proud Member of the social gathering NO! you're precisely what's incorrect with this u . s . a ....close minded and thoroughly ignorant. i'm appalled that somebody as uneducated as your self in all possibility went to the polls...it quite is a crying shame. Kloun - ninety% of human beings who oppose marijuana gain this basically with the aid of fact somebody someplace alongside the way instructed them it became into "undesirable"...especially elderly people who have been area of the "Reefer insanity" era. they'll have faith something they're instructed by potential of the media/government, and that actual is closed minded. If preconceived notions are not your motives for opposing it, i could quite prefer to hearken to what examine you have extremely achieved. because you're way off on the entire "marijuana motives lung maximum cancers" argument. there have been no conclusive examine to point this...granted, they're skewed by potential of consumers who additionally smoke cigarettes, even though it quite is a actuality that marijuana smoke is far less destructive to the lungs than tar. additionally, marijuana could be utilized smokelessly. so as this could be a moot element, i'm afraid, attempt returned. As for the unique question, and as you have already been instructed, Prop 19 did no longer bypass. The shaggy dog tale is on the state of California...marijuana legalization could be a gold mine and that they only quite screwed themselves out of taxing the #a million funds crop, mutually as as a replace persevering with their futile (and extremely high priced) conflict on drugs.

  • Hello I have a friend studying in California who was raped by the school director in a school party when she was unconscious due to excess of alcohol. Now, almost 1 month later, she figured out that she is pregnant and of course she want abort. The problem is that my friend is foreigner, she is an international student so she doesn't know what to do. I'm foreigner too and I'm not in the USA, so I don't know how to help her and how is the American law. The school director want bring her to a hospital to abort but I told her that she should denounce him. She is afraid that the judge can think she want a social security number but that's not her goal. After talking with me I almost convinced her to report everything to the police but she still confuse and she can not spend a lot of money for the lawyer and the hospital. I know here in Europe there are free lawyers even for illegal people. She is not illegal but living and studying there without working she can't afford a lawyer. This is one problem, the other one is about the abortion. Can she do that in America as foreigner? I don't know if she has a medical insurance, probably yes, but I don't know if they cover these expenses. Is it possible to do all these things for a non American? Are there any possible problems? Thank you so much. Sorry for the poor english, if you have doubts let me know and I will clarify
  • xpatinasia: you could have saved your time I don't need your useless comments. It's NOT a hoax, this really happened and my friend didn't contact the police because she was afraid to have some problems and because the school director (she called him the "school boss", so I'm not sure what's his role there but is something big in the school) pushed her to don't tell anybody (he is married with childrens) and he made her think she will be in trouble because she is foreigner. I knew this story only yesterday, I'm the first to know and I'm absolutely pushing her to call the police but from what she said I wanted make sure these things, I don't want she get more in trouble then that. To be precise it's a private language school, not a college or something else and she is 30, not a teen
  • Legal.council is available free. She needs to report this to the police immediately and should.not be talking to the rapist. After reporting the crime, especially since by what you said she has said to the rapist, it should be easy for him to persecuted. No abortions are not free, for anyone. If she had reported the rape after it had happened they would have given her an emergency contraceptive pill to abort the baby. But our government does not give free abortions to our citizens or students studying here, in fact no country in Europe does either. She is not going to be persecuted in any way for reporting a crime against her as such, and should IMMEDIATELY go to the police. If she studying as dual citizen there should be no pro lem, in fact even if she is illegally here there is no problem. Rape is rape irregardless of the victims nationality. If she were here on holiday it would be no different. I am very sorry for her, but she should of reported the rape sooner. DNA tests can be confirmed during pregnancy bit so long after the crime and with no evidence at all it would be nearly impossible to prove it was rape. And again, legal councel when taken to court in America is always offered free.
  • You can provide information to your friend but not the counseling that she will need. She should call a rape hotline on a confidential basis. They will be able to talk to her about legal options but first things first get to someone who understands counseling about dealing with trauma. In any case, she should stay away from the school director.
  • There are usually free teen clinics where a person can get things like abortions done. My friend had it done, good luck :( Have her talk to her school counselor and just ask about teen clinics nearby. She doesnt have to tell the counselor everything
  • If this really happened, she'd have contacted the police. Your post is an obvious hoax, it's purposefully distasteful, and it has been reported.
  • USC is a very well respected university. It is, however, a private school and not a public one like UCLA. Since you will pay a great deal of money to attend and your aspirations are to be in fashion, find a fashion career college or an art college. You are not in attending USC making the best possible decision with your education dollars. I tried to find a statement of the costs for undergraduates and although searching on the website said that I could find a list of costs and fees under financial aid, I was unable to locate it. Be sure to find that out first unless your parents can afford to send you anywhere. I almost felt like they thought if you have to ask, you can't afford it. On the up side, since they are not a state school it does not matter if you are in state, out of state, or international. You pay the same thing.
  • Look for something in Arts and Media that could tie in someway
  • Classify? that's a extensive inner maximum college. different than that, i don't "classify" it in any respect. I actual have been in touch in helping the form college and the college of Social artwork there with the aid of the years.
  • it depends on the setting, if you want instructional daycare,like preschool, you can try the montessorri schools, that will run you upwards of $1,000. a month, . Private daycare providers usually have competitive rates if your child/ren will be a regular attendee. The average cost for day car in my area, Solano county/East bay area near San Francisco, it runsaround $ 3-400.00 a month...best bet is to figure out your needed schedule and go from there. Also,there are always church and mommy and me groups where you may be able to trade childcare or another service to save more money in what I am sure is hard times for all. A list of all qualified and licensed daycare providers should be available at your local city hall, as these providers must have licenses and be inspected by the city.

  • wow thats alot like what i'll build but i'll make some changes. i want my island to be a place where people can flee societal persecution just because they're different. basically same principles america was founded on but the usa no longer follows. my island is a refuge from social norms that i hate so much. in order to protect and defend my rights and the rights of the people to seek refuge here, we have nuclear deterrent. icbms. anti nuke defenses, land based rail guns, 4 strike capabilities. we are a small but very well armed nation anyone that tries to bully us i will not hesitate to massacre tens of millions to make a point. you have to be very aggressive about it or others will walk all over you. - ill have a humble little house for me and my family - i'll have various little house for anyone seeking asylum - radio tower, undersea internet cable (gigabit internet!), anti missile defense system - airstrip. nothing fancy actually it just looks that way from the sky. - geothermal power is best, but other forms of electricity is ok - i'll have my private militia. the original us constitution applies here. - ill have a sex den, dunno about underground though - i'll have a nuclear bomb shelter in case people don't get the concept of MAD, because i know it well. technically they'll look like idiots when my lasers and missiles shoot down their attacks. - a food farm - a coke farm (i must make money you know) - a weed farm, becuase pot makes me better - water distillation plant - designated shooting area., its like the california high desert, but a designated area. just shoot sh**. have fun. - arms factory. how else are we going to defend ourselves? - a little city so my people can have the comforts of civilization. with hospital and dental care and grocery stores, schools and the such. - shipping dock. - underground sub launching dock. this is how the drugs are sent - helipad - security room. we use automatic computerized guns as primarily line of defense against foreign aggressors. - ICBM room becuase i don't just talk. i mean it. well also have little areas for like meth production and other recreational drugs. i want my people to be happy and excess we'll sell. i want the whole world to be happy.

  • I got Acceptance for spring term in these universities in the field of computer science... 1>University Of Central Missouri 2>California Lutheran University I checked out the ratings via googling it.. i found out that Central missouri is 3 tire and cal lutheran is 1 tire ... don't really know what are dey .......... I am really confused which university to opt for. Central missouri is governed by public and its entire tuition fee is around 17000$ where as california lutheran is a private university and its entire tuition fee is around 25000$ .... well i don't have problem with money but i am unable to get much information on both of the university and which is better for my field that is computer science............ so people who have any idea about the university please let me know waiting 4r your answers....... Thank you
  • i think California Lutheran University is best for other details you visit http://www.indiastudychannel.com/resourc...http://www.indiastudychannel.com/resourc...
  • $1,800/quarter vs. $50,000 at for example USC. I have no pitty for the Mexicans protesting who want more freebies since the state pays for their tuitions. I was just as poor as a Mexican when I was a student, my parents were going through a bankruptcy, I had to take out loans. Students who are minorities never get loans and think the government is responsible for footing all their bills so I am praying these increases pass for some justice and so they have to contribute to instead of flashing around their designer clothes and gadgets on campus with the money they save from free tuition while I literally starved my way through a UC university.
  • USC is a private school that depends upon income from tuition, endowments, grants, and a huge and wealthy alumni network. The U of C system is state funded and supported which allows it to be lesser in cost than a private school. Although, it will not be so low for too much longer. A 32% increase has been approved for tuition and I suspect a huge increase in fees is to follow.
  • i myself am a Hispanic American. i'm possitive that immigrants are basically allowed to end highschool in the u . s . no longer count what state they're in. in case you're an Immigrant, you at the instant are not allowed to connect a college or a college without eco-friendly Card or a valid Social risk-free practices extensive form. assume they're allowed to bypass into college being immigrants i've got self belief they ought to pay for an out of state training, yet then there is the factor that in case you reside in the state for a 300 and sixty 5 days you grow to affix the state.
  • I'm 17 and I have no one to teach me to drive. My mom won't..she's too scared to. So now basically I'm about to be 18 in a couple of months and I don't really know anything about driving. So would it be worth it to pay the $395 for 30 hour in class room instruction and 6 hours private lessons on the road?
  • In California, more specifically, Los Angeles, you can find 6 hour lessons for $150 average price!. Anyways, for drivers ed, I recommend you do it online. Its $20, DMV approved, and you can take as long as you want. http://driveredtogo.com/ is what i used. Use X37-6EB-BFC for $3 off!
  • holy thats cheap in canada is 2000 dollars for a 60 hour course
  • Yes it will make your insurance go down big time so in the long run its worth it

  • California has 1 year LVN programs. I recommend doing that before becoming a medical assistant. Check out your local community colleges for both programs. LVNs can work in a physician office too, but you have a stepping stone to become an RN at a later date if you so decide. I trained as an MA at a "private" vocational school. Biggest waste of money and way overpriced.
  • i heard bryman is good it lasts around 6mo i beieve. check the Ma page at PureMedicalJobs.com good luck
  • So basically I live in Southern California & I'm fresh out of high school & I need to have a career & earn an income as soon as possible, my goal is to be financially stable & self sufficient by 20-21 yrs old. I either want to work in the law enforcement field either as a: Correctional Officer , Police Officer , Probation Officer , Border Patrol , FBI. Or the Health Care field as a Registered Nurse (RN) or Paramedic (EMT) . Which is the better route to go considering the location that I live in ? & projected estimates within the next 5 years ? & what field pays more?
  • Actually yes I have, I find it funny that by a paragraph you can make such a judgment . I personally have interest in BOTH fields, obviously I know not to pick a career soley based on money, but it's definently an aspect that has to be looked at. Ofcourse I want a career that I have a passion for . I just wanted peoples personal opinions based on their experiences with loved ones, family & friends peers ect ...because I don't have that . SO DONT BE SO QUICK TO JUDGE !
  • RN - In California you should get a BSN (4 year degree) to find a decent job. Paramedic - EMT can be done in 3 weeks and the Paramedic cert in 6 months. But, to get a decent job you need to be a firefighter which has 1000s of applications and you would have to meet all of the requirements. No easy for most. For just EMT you'll be making minimum wage if you can find a job and the market is flooded. If you go to a private tech school for Paramedic, expect about $12k - $20k in debt. FBI and the Border Patrol are both competitive and you also should have at least a Bachelors degree ( 4 years). Bilingual in Spanish is also preferred for Border Patrol. You'll have alot of student debt for at least 10 years unless you have a wealth family.
  • First, get ready your self as satisfactory you'll for the BP scan. You almost always understand that the BP has research courses and scan practise manuals. Use them, use them, use them! If you do not recognize why any of the proper solutions are proper, get a teach. You must be in a position to move. Continue to end up as bodily have compatibility as you'll. Improve your entire conversation competencies. Practice to upgrade your commentary and reminiscence competencies. I might additionally recommend watching into becoming a member of the Coast Guard if you'll. Whether or no longer you get employed through the BP or become a member of the army, surely get a measure. Get a minimum of a four yr measure. Get the maximum grade factor traditional that you'll.
  • I don't think you spent that much time researching any of this. Asking this type of question here is useless - since we don't know you. Will you make a good police officer? Will you make a good nurse? How can we tell? Base your career on money alone is the worst thing you can do. Imagine doing something you don't want to do (like, taking the trash out, doing the dishes, babysitting your brother) on a daily basis - no matter how much it pays, you'll sooner or later quit. ------- You're not mature enough to have an adult conversation. Started out with your question - it tells us very little about what you already know. It's like, do my homework, because I don't what to do any of it myself (even if you said you have already done some research.) You didn't tell us anything about what you thought of any of these careers. You could have said, "my mother is a nurse and she seems to like it. I would like to be a nurse because (this and that), but being a police officer seems to be a good career, too. Is it that dangerous to be a police officer?" I wish you luck.
  • Have you heard of Warren Buffet? He is the 2nd richest man in American, slightly behind Bill Gates. He lives in Omaha, NE. He bought the house 40 years ago. It's a very nice house - maybe 3500sf. It's not on a private street. There are no gates around it. Instead of worrying about money you don't have and how you are going to spend it. Why don't you worry about how to make the money in the first place.
  • sure, $ninety,000 is nice for California ... of direction this is assuming you are going to be residing in an "popular" center class section. in case you p.c. to stay in downtown San Francisco or the wonderful aspects of la, then you incredibly'll want so lots greater, yet for the final place in California this is a real looking earnings.
  • Of course not. Private schools don't get tax money, so they have to charge tuition, room, and board. However, most private boarding schools have financial aid to offer. You can apply for it.
  • There's no such thing. Boarding schools can cost more than colleges, and that's before they make any money.
  • No, not unless you get a scholarship. Think about it. They have to give you a place to live and feed you which costs money.
  • In April I reported earning money for the last two weeks. I included that it was 1099 (subcontractor) work I did for my former employer. I received a letter back for each of the weeks that says, "No Benefits are payable during the week 05-02-09 you reported excessive earnings." I received the exact same thing for the week before. I have received nothing else... No more claim formss for jobs I am seeking, no letter that says my EDD is canceled or what to do. I have tried calling the 800 number in the booklet and it gives me the automated message and hangs up because they have a large volume of callers. I tried calling again this morning at 7:57 (office is closed, please call back at 8am).. then at 8am.. too large of volume. Should I just write a letter or walk in an office? I live in California.
  • Wow! This was a long time ago. If it helps anyone, I ended up going to EDD and it was a private office, but the employee that answered the telecom was kind enough to buzz me in and call EDD for me. They told me to just send in a claim again and that worked. Because my earned income in a one week period exceeded the maximum payment, the computer was triggered to stop payments.
  • Just keep calling if you get the automatic machine hang up and call again that's what I did when I need to contact them and I also live in CA and I did this 10X but finally I got thru also don't go down to the office they will make you call anyways and it will be a wasted of your day
  • Why don't you just use the ASK EDD feature on the website. If you ever get through you will not be able to speak to a representative, they are way too busy. If you earn over you benefit amount you will not get a check . Go on the website and request continued claim forms for weeks ending 5/9 to 7/4.

  • It depends on what Diocese and Parish you teach in and how much money they have. However you can plan on making significantly less at a Catholic school than at a public or other private school.
  • Starting 32k - compare to starting in public schools (LAUSD) 45k both of my examples are current salary from Los Angeles.
  • IDK about CA. However, if it's like any other state , it's going to be a hellava lot less than it's public school equivalent. That goes for the benefits & retirement structure also. If you think that you can handle public school children, go that route.
  • Where you go won't have an impact on your law school application as long as you attend an accredited 4 year college. In fact, 4 members of Congress and a US Attorney for the W.D. of PA all are Cal PA alums. The most important thing about your law school application are your gpa and lsat scores. As long as those are high (150 or better on the LSAT and a 3.0 or better), getting in to a law school is possible. For more competitive law schools, as a tiebreaker, a school will look at a UGPA and compare it to the UGPAs from other LSAT takers from your school over the past few years and also look at your undergrad institutions average LSAT score to determine if you were a top performer at your school, and how competitive your undergrad experience was. But again, that's only if you apply to maybe the top 50 law schools in the US. Bottom line, I wouldn't worry about a transfer. Just get good grades.
  • It doesn't matter. Well, sort of. State schools tend to be a bit cheaper even if you do not reside in the state. However, there are some great state law schools (USC, UCal Berkely, UTexas, UConn, and what not, but there are great private Harvard, Yale, UPenn. Look at the numbers of the school, financial aid, and what works best for you to make a decision. Good luck!
  • I'm from the east coast (NJ) and I've always wanted to go to school in California ever since I was young -- but now that I've looked into it more, the tuition rates for out of state students are skyrocketing, +25,000 - not even including room and board & books -- So are these top-notch schools worth that money ?
  • In your case, try applying to USC. Because it's a private school they give a lot more scholarships and can make it much more affordable for you. If it's your dream, at least apply and see what sort of financial package they give you, it may work out to be the same price as a state school if you're really lucky. Try looking at other Cali private schools as well like Stanford and USD so that you can better compare packages. Very few private school students pay sticker price, only 20% at my school. My advice is at least try. Then you'll never wonder what if.
  • For undergrad studies - IMHO - no. Go to your local state university. Reserve the highly ranked schools for your post-grad. Thanks Bill
  • Yes. You can get the private lawyer to file a motion for continuance which means that they will postpone your court date. You just need to be able to make sure that you can make suitable pay arrangements for your own lawyer before doing this so you aren't out of luck.
  • probably yes.
  • Its a dream of mine to live in a private setting with almost no neighbors. Also Im Wiccan and believe in preserving the earth and not over using the planet's resources. Plus I miss my old house's large backyard. I heard that California's governors are making desert rats move out of their homes even though it was bought and paid for. So unfair. Of course Im worried the same thing might happen in Pa. Please give me details, thank you.
  • It's hard to go 100% off the grid. There's usually going to be some record of you owning the land you're on, or renting it, etc. But yes, if you had the money you could go onto a cash basis, find a way to buy land somewhere, and live on it. There still may be records of you in transactions you do, since you still need groceries, utilities, etc., but you can live fairly privately if you want.
  • " I heard that California's governors are making desert rats move out of their homes even though it was bought and paid for." Without a source or at least an explanation WHY, I would have to guess that is not true. If you own a piece of land and you're allowed to live on it, you can live on it. (You can't, for example, live on a property zoned for commercialization) plenty of people live in very removed settings.
  • That's typical. Stupid government just can't leave people alone. Best of luck to you. Sorry no suggestions =(
  • See you lawyer or your counsellor
  • Short answer is yes, MA jobs are difficult to find, at least where I live in California and the pay isn't great. Read on for the long answer. Should you wish additional information, edit your post and I will respond. Specifically if you tell me whether you prefer front office or back office I can better guide you. I personally always preferred front office. Are you taking billing, transcription, ICD-10 coding, etc? I have taught medical assisting and medical billing and coding at community college, adult schools and private colleges. I don't know where you live, however in the San Francisco Bay Area where I live it is difficult to get a job. However, based on my experience I do have information to help increase your chances. I don't know whether you are going to a community college or private vocational school for your degree. Usually as long as the school has a good reputation with employers a degree is better than just a certificate. Although an important thing to know is once you complete your degree you will most likely also have a certificate of completion. This DOES NOT mean that your are certified. If you want to become a certified medical assistant, you must take a test. Unless you are also in California (because we split off from the national association years ago) you should go to this website: http://www.aama-ntl.org/becomeCMA/how.as...The best advice is this and I can not over emphasize the importance of this: Begin looking for your job right now! My experience is that the best chance you have of getting a job is looking NOW while you are still in school. DO NOT take a break once you graduate, even though I know you will probably be tired; I know I was. Contact your doctor, dentist, eye doctor, orthodontist, chiropractor, acupuncturist, pediatrician, etc. Tell all your friends and family you are looking. My aunt got me my first job in the medical field. It would be great if the place where you do your externship hires you but there is no guarantee. If you are offered a job take it even if the pay is lousy. You are getting paid to learn and get experience. Some places are getting 300 resumes for one job opening. Years ago some places like Kaiser offered an MA to LVN program although I don't believe they do any more. Had you asked me before you started the program I would have advised you to skip it, unless you only want to do front office and/or billing and coding, and go straight to RN. I have a niece who I helped get into the Medical Assisting program in her area. She got in but was unable to get a job where she was living and has now just started going for her RN. However, as you only have one semester left if is vital that you finish. At least you will have your degree which can't hurt. The other thing to do right now is contact your local Medical Assisting chapter, sign up (they usually offer student discounts), go to their meetings and NETWORK.

  • Pick a Visa ... There are basically NINE ways that you can get a visa to live and work in the US: (1) Marriage (or engagement in anticipation of marriage) to a US citizen. (2) You have skills that are in short supply in the US e.g. scientific or medical training. A degree is normally a must. Or you have superior specialist skills with at least 12 years experience. (H visas) (3) You have an Employer who is willing to transfer you - but even the employer has to make a good case for you - so you have to be a manager unless you fall under category (2) above.(L visas) (4) You may get a Green card in the diversity lottery (UK citizens, except N.Ireland, are not generally eligible unless you, your spouse or parents were born abroad or held a different citizenship. (5)You own or buy business (does not get you permanent resident status i.e. no green card)You must be a national of a qualifying Treaty countries. The business must have a minimum value of around $150k (more the better) bearing in mind you will need somewhere to live and with any startup business you will need at least 2 years living money as back up. So a figure of $350k would be a nearer minimum (E-2 visas) (6)You are an "investor" i.e. you have at least US $1m in assets to bring with you. half of that in a few areas. And your background will be investigated to the hilt. (EB-5 visas) (7)You have a close relative (mother, father, brother, sister and no further) who is an US citizen who would sponsor you, approx time this take 2-12 years? (8.The R1 visa is available to foreign members of religious denominations, having bona fide non-profit religious organizations in the U.S., for entering the U.S. to carry on the activities of a minister or religious worker as a profession, occupation or vocation (9)THE UNUSUAL You are in a position to claim refugee status/political asylum. or You get a member of Congress to sponsor a private bill with legislation that applies just to you. The S visa issued to persons who assist US law enforcement to investigate and prosecute crimes and terrorist activities such as money laundering and organized crime Recruitment agent will not take you seriously if you are not already in the US. Writing for jobs is really a waste of time; likewise US employers have no idea what foreign qualification are or mean (except Degrees) it may pay you to get your qualification translated into a US equivalent, there are Companies that do this (www.wes.org) .. But if you are getting a visa under (2) above then you need a job offer before you can get the visa. Your Employer will be your sponsor this will cost them upward of $5k. So you can see you have to be offering something really special to get considered They may also have to prove to the Dept of labor that there is no American who can do the job if the position is to be permanent
  • If your plan includes getting married, you have a choice of filing a K-1 (fiancee) or K-3/CR1 (spouse) visa for him.With K-1 you will have to get married within 90days upon arrival.Both K-1 and K-3 needs to file for Adjustment of Status (I-485) here in the US.He can file along with that his work permit (I-765) so he can find work while waiting for his green card to be processed.Both K-1 and K-3 has about the same timeline of 8 months - 2 years.CR1 takes longer to process but since it is an immigrant visa he doesn't need to to file for Adjustment of Status when he arrives.His green card will arrive within 2 weeks after his arrival.You will be the one who will file for his petition with the USCIS.Once your petition is approved here in the US it will be forwarded to the US Embassy in Argentina where he will be the interviewed. http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index....http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index....http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index....If marriage is not yet included in your plans. There are some possible visas like a work or student visa.He needs to have an employer who will apply for the visa for him or he should qualify to the requirements of the student visa.
  • This shareholder holds 40% of the stock. He does little for the Company. He was given the 40% upon a committment to pay the company a substantial sum. The legal paperwork went through and he got his stock but the money did not come in. I am not sure if this "committment" was verbal or in writing. This happened 5 years ago to a company that I am interested in buying but this shareholder will not sell for a reasonable price. He is also a lawyer.
  • The sale of stock in a private corporation, requires approval of the Board of Directors and a resolution by the board to accept the offer, and that the offer was for adequete compensation. Check the minutes of the meeting of the Board of Directors, a copy of the resolution should be in there. The Board of Directors would have to meet and might be able to revoke the shares, but you would need to check the laws in California. I suspect, since the shareholder is a lawyer, he or she wrote themselves an airtight contract.
  • I am looking into getting into an export business from overseas, with my base being in California. My questions: 1. Do you need a reseller's permit if the goods you purchase are made overseas? In other words, I wouldn't be buying the goods from a wholesale party in the USA. 2. If the business is located outside of the USA and the items are shipped from outside the USA, would I still have to gather sales tax? All of the transactions with customers would be coming from another country. Most (if not all) of the transactions would be done via the internet (eBay, etc.) As I want to make the business legal, I just want to make sure I am doing the right things (the CA site wasn't overly clear; I understand having to file for a Business Tax License in my area as a sole proprietor). Thanks!
  • yes perhaps, depending on the state. mass ca tx ny are real butholes to deal with and they will make it as difficult for yiou as possible if they think they can get you to pay/collect taxes to them. my experience with the state of ca....they are just afu, don't care a bit about you, logic, intelligent thought, if they think you owe them money, you are sol, because they get ugly in a hurry, and there is nothing you can do but pay, or pay more for an attorney. if you can do business in ar or nv, do so. get a pob in one of those states, and send all business mail there, then have it forwarded to you by a private forwarder. if you have no trucks or traffic to speak of, it will be difficult to get busted. good luck
  • if u want suggestions about businesws just go through the following website
  • Firstly, you definitely want to be sure the title to the car is cleared. If there is a lien on the vehicle (money owed) the lender can repossess the car if that loan is not cleared. Secondly, I would require the current owner to to obtain a "car fax" search on the car and have that available and given to you as part of the deal. Thirdly, when the price is agreed to, the current owner is responsible for paying all sales tax associated with the transaction. One way to accomplish that that works out for both parties is to have the agreed upon amount deducted from the price of the sales tax that will be owed to the state when the deal is made. Other than that, I hope you've found what you like are going to be happy with your car.......Good luck
  • 1. It is best that you and the seller together go and visit with the lien holder. 2. In California the seller is responsible for having the vehicle smog checked. 3. You need to contact the California department of motor vehicle before you do anything. 4. If any of the above are not done prior to handing over your cash on a Saturday, you could be in for a rude awaking because many lien holders are not open on Saturdays.
  • After high school I don't know whether I should stay local (UCR) or go a little more distant to another UC school. I want to make sure that it would be worth the gas money and time. So I basically want to be a neurosurgeon and have an interest in business too. What would be a good UC school for me? I'm looking for: 1.) a strict college, not a wasteful party school 2.) small class size, preferably under 40 3.) promising graduation rate (60%> graduating students) 4.) has financial aid 5.) isn't behind in technology Please if you went to a UC school, tell me about your experiences. Thanks! =]
  • For undergraduate studies, you'll be spending most of your time in general education classes and premed studies in preparation for med school. UC campuses will have the largest class sizes compared to CSUs, and cover the same material. UC schools are a lot more expensive than CSUs. No UC or CSU is a party school. There are only students who choose to party instead of study, or not. Those who party instead of study are the ones most likely not to graduate. They all have financial aid. None of them are behind for premed studies, since the undergrad subjects will be the same, biology, chemistry, math, physiology, etc. For business, many of the CSUs are significantly better than UCs. For example, CSU San Bernardino has a significantly better business school than UC Riverside. CSU gained AACSB accreditation long before UCR did. I took classes at RCC before transferring, and I had the choice to go to any UC or CSU of my choice. I lived closer to UCR than to CSUSB, but I chose CSUSB because it was a better program. My accounting professor at RCC taught at both UCR and CSUSB, and he recommended CSUSB over UCR. UCR has half the number of professors per student as CSUSB, so the classes are at least double the size at UCR vs. CSUSB. But either campus will work fine for your purposes, or Cal Poly Pomona. You could also save a lot of money by attending RCC at the Riverside, Moreno Valley, or Norco campuses. The class sizes will be a lot smaller, and your degree will be exactly the same when you transfer to a 4 year university to complete your undergrad work. But your GPA will probably be higher if you go to RCC first, for various reasons, since they use a flat A-F grading system instead of a plus/minus system, and the classes aren't scored so toughly. Most of the GE classes have nothing to do with your major, so it serves little purpose to work harder to get a B- in a GE class at a UC than you'd have to get an A at RCC. An A is an A, when it transfers. In the subjects that are related to premed, like those science and math classes, you can learn just as much at RCC and CSUs, but with less pressure. So long as you maintain a high GPA above 3.5, or as close to 4.0 as you can get, then you'll be well prepared for med school. The school you pick for med school will make a big difference, however. Not all UC Campuses have med schools. UC Riverside is not a good choice because their med school is still in the planning stages. In SoCal, the best options will be UCSD, UC Irvine, UCLA, and USC. In NorCal, UCSF and UC Davis are the best options. UCSF is the best of all of these, but it's a graduate school only. UCSF is ranked in the top 10 nationally in many medical specialties, and it gets the most research money for medicine in the UC system, by far. There are some very good private med schools too, such as Loma Linda University, having the top trauma hospital in the Inland Empire and the only Level I pediatric trauma center in the Inland Empire. So your choice of school depends on what medical specialty you intend to pursue. For pediatric trauma, LLU is the obvious choice for any student in the IE.
  • sure, it is genuine. At one time, knowledgeable human beings tended to vote Republican; yet over the final decade, using fact the Republicans began to pander to the ignorant, the knowledgeable instructions gravitated to the left using fact they despise stupidity. whilst i become a youthful college graduate, I additionally supported the Republican circulate using fact for the duration of the previous due 60's and 70's many Democrats moved to the severe left. undergo in recommendations such severe radicals like George McGovern, Gene McCarthy, Bella Abzug, and so on? on the time, the Republicans provided a reasonable physique of recommendations. right now's Republicans help stupidity: anti-technology, perception in advertising non secular fundamentalism, slicing taxes with out asserting what courses they'll decrease, refusal to correctly known overpopulation and worldwide warming, resistance to environmental courses, and so on. no person with 0.5 a recommendations helps extremism. If the U. S. had a center-of-the-highway occasion, it could flourish - and the knowledgeable could help it.
  • Berkeley. But good luck getting in!
  • Most California medical school applicants probably do not use it. I would suggest using the money to pay for private tutoring to increase your MCAT score. You can certainly apply to every medical school in California without having received services from a consultant.

  • I am seriously considering attending this school specifically the Orange County campus. I want to know how it is there. If the curriculum is good? If the school is good? If you liked attending this campus? Or any other info. I am interested in studying both Photography and Culinary Arts. How are the classes for these programs? would it be better to study photo and culinary simultaneously or one after another? Thank you!!
  • I would recommend that you read the Wikipedia article on the Art Institutes. Be sure to scroll down to and read the section subtitled "Controversies." You might also google "art institutes scam" and read some of the material that you find. The Art Institutes are for-profit schools, meaning that they make money off their students. They differ from public and nonprofit private schools which spend more on educating their students than they take in as tuition. You will be able to get a better education for less money at a community college.

  • Debt means just that. The US owes other debtors. They are many including bond holders and other providers of credit. That is why there was a hubbub about owing China for the last tax refund everyone got. In america there are private holders of wealth. But that, of course, is not included in US debt.
  • I am an economist and America has been spending more than it has been producing for decades. We have been in an asset bubble, that is to say, assets were priced well beyond a reasonable value and people, quite a few foreigners, extended credit on these inflated prices. Now these creditors are asking for their money, but the assets that many people intended to sell to pay off the debt are worth less than the debt. When people made home equity loans to buy things and when people have used credit cards in the last decade, they were selling future wealth for current enjoyment. The bill has come due. It didn't disappear, it was used to buy pizza, build bridges and pay for SUVs.
  • Only 25% of the US debt is foreign owned. Over 50% is owned by the federal reserve. The other 25% is owned by states, government agencies, and pension plans. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Estimated_ownership_of_US_Treasury_securities_by_category.gif Debt is not good or bad. Remember that debt paid for all the roads, bridges, schools, dams, military, law enforcement, education, museums, hospitals, medical research, and many other things. People get on here and complain. It is rediculous. These people don't even bother to research the subject for a second. Someone said a majority of the debt is held by foreigners. By almost any person's standards, 25% is not a majority. Stop complaining. If you don't like it, take charge! OPM is a self oppointed economist. No one takes him seriously. When he talks, no one cares.
  • A lot of this debt is owned by foreign nations. The US treasury, in order to get money sells US Bonds, Notes and T-Bills. These are bought by individuals, investment firms as well as nations. I believe that China is the biggest holder of US debt. That makes it a political problem also. We can't get the Chinese too angry with us otherwise they may call-in ore stop buying our debt which would lead to major economic problems. Hope this Helps.
  • hmmm alot of ppl took them after obama won the election just like with guns ppl are buying them cuz obama will screw up
  • Hello, I live in Scotland, UK. I play drums for a band and i have no intentions of leaving at the moment. However, Ive given myself a time limit where if nothing major has happened by then, im going to move to a country where i will be surrounded by adventure and opportunity. At the moment, i quite like the sound of Los Angeles lol! Dont know why. So if anyone has been there, lives there, or is knowledgeable about the subject, could you please give me advice? Things i need to know: Cost of renting an apartment. Cost of general living. Alternative options to Los Angeles within or without California. Cost of getting from A to B, preferably with my own vehicle. Cost of buying a second hand car. Laws and regulations for busking on the streets - permit required? Employment situation in the places you recommend. Cheers.
  • You have little to no chance Pick a visa There are basically NINE ways that you can get a visa to live and work in the US: (1) Marriage (or engagement in anticipation of marriage) to a US citizen. (2) You have skills that are in short supply in the US e.g. scientific or medical training. A degree is normally a must. Or you have superior specialist skills with at least 12 years experience. (H visas) (3) You have an Employer who is willing to transfer you - but even the employer has to make a good case for you - so you have to be a manager unless you fall under category (2) above.(L visas) (4) You may get a Green card in the diversity lottery (UK citizens, except N.Ireland, are not generally eligible unless you, your spouse or parents were born abroad or held a different citizenship. (5)You own or buy business (does not get you permanent resident status i.e. no green card)You must be a national of a qualifying Treaty countries. The business must have a minimum value of around $150k (more the better) bearing in mind you will need somewhere to live and with any startup business you will need at least 2 years living money as back up. So a figure of $350k would be a nearer minimum (E-2 visas) (6)You are an "investor" i.e. you have at least US $1m in assets to bring with you. half of that in a few areas. And your background will be investigated to the hilt. (EB-5 visas) (7)You have a close relative (mother, father, brother, sister and no further) who is an US citizen who would sponsor you, approx time this take 2-12 years? (8.The R1 visa is available to foreign members of religious denominations, having bona fide non-profit religious organizations in the U.S., for entering the U.S. to carry on the activities of a minister or religious worker as a profession, occupation or vocation (9)THE UNUSUAL You are in a position to claim refugee status/political asylum. or You get a member of Congress to sponsor a private bill with legislation that applies just to you. The S visa issued to persons who assist US law enforcement to investigate and prosecute crimes and terrorist activities such as money laundering and organized crime Recruitment agent will not take you seriously if you are not already in the US. Writing for jobs is really a waste of time; likewise US employers have no idea what foreign qualification are or mean (except Degrees) it may pay you to get your qualification translated into a US equivalent, there are Companies that do this (www.wes.org) .. But if you are getting a visa under (2) above then you need a job offer before you can get the visa. Your Employer will be your sponsor this will cost them upward of $5k. So you can see you have to be offering something really special to get considered They may also have to prove to the Dept of labor that there is no American who can do the job if the position is to be permanent © follow the flow chart http://immigrationroad.com/green-card/im...
  • Los Angeles is an expensive place to live, and the job market is not good right now. I would highly recommend you find a job first, and then look into moving. It sounds like you are a bit bored with life, and want a change. However, if you can't find "adventure and opportunity" where you are, then you aren't going to find it in some random city half way around the world. The novelty will wear off, and then you'll be right back in the same situation.
  • The cost of living in Los Angeles is pretty high. If you're in good job, then you can afford all the cost. Think before you leave your own country.
  • I think it's pretty expensive and depending on which section, there could be criminal activity. Permits are required for most things in the United States, thanks to liberals who have harmed our country and continue to do so.
  • 1: any where from $500-50,000 american dollars 2:$30,000 if your smart 3: San Diego, CA; Palm Springs,CA 4: Gas is $4.00 a gallon 5: $1,000-50,000 6: Get inside by ten, cannot block pedestrian walkways 7: Restaurant service, hotel industry
  • At one time, I worked for Piercy's Credit Exchange, a collection agency on Wilshire Blvd, in Beverly Hills. Rodeo Drive does exist and it is as expensive as it's made out to be. There are a number of walled, gated mansions there too, but mostly what you will find, other than small businesses, are small, overpriced, private homes and kids that don't have nearly as much money as the actors on 90210 seem to have.
  • Beverly Hills 90210! I am 20 and it was going on while I was a yonger child, but I have watched all the episodes on SoapNet and I know own all the seasons on DVD. I like the older version because the stuff that happened actually seemed like logical things that actually happened, Aaron Spelling always touched on hot topics that were happening during th filimings of allof his shows like Beverly Hills 90210 and 7th Heaven. I think if he would see 90210 he would be very dissapointed if he would see what they have spun off from such a great show. Don't get me wrong I have watched every episode of 90210 and I love the show but I think I prefer Beverly Hills 90210.
  • Most of it is full of expensive houses and apartment buildings, as in the millions each. "Older" Beverly Hills is much like any other upscale neighborhood. There are LOTS of palm trees lining the streets, that much is true in movies and TV. Rodeo Drive is more touristy than real shopping--most rich people have personal shoppers take clothes to their home or hotel room for shopping rather than mix with all the tourists on the few blocks f high-end stores. Many of the kids DO go to Beverly Hills High School because the incorporated area pays for the schooling and they can afford the best!
  • *beep* What is Beverly Hills? I'll take Questions That Don't Belong In Politics & Government for $1,200, Alex.
  • I've driven my full-size Chevy truck through Beverly Hills many times. (Not kidding.)
  • Its 78 and sunny 90 percent of the time. homes are palacial. the women are rediculously attractive. There are several lamborghini/ferrari/aston martin etc dealerships within several blocks of each other. Its a great place to visit but honestly wouldnt want to live there. Its kinda cartoonish.
  • Lots of money, crappy parking overpriced shops and restaurants and unfriendly ( though quite attractive ) people. I grew up just over the hill in the San Fernando Valley and still live about 45 mins. away.
  • yes, frequently. its just southern CA, its cleaner than most of LA, its much more expensive to get a cup of latte, there is a lot of plastic surgery walking around and its fun. there are a lot of celebs out shopping, a lot of paparazzi and it can get sort of chaotic if an a-lister is out and about. lots of posers there too, lots of wannabes. lots of pretty people...I live in the bay area and I wouldn't trade it for LA.
  • Yes. There was so much smog the whole place smelled like azzz. Or maybe that was just Nancy Reagan.
  • Yes, several times (I live about 30 miles away). Very pretty area and fantastically expensive.
  • Im a junior in High school and have always been fascinated with the phenomenon of flight and i fly Rc planes as well but im thinking of my future. I want to know of some Flight Schools particulary in CA. I know an Airforce academy would be great but is there other ways? Im probaly going to go with the Airforce way thow but i want some background information anywaise. Oh and dont mention money because im doing it for the love of the sport.
  • I don't know what part of California you are looking for training in, but there is a good list of schools here: http://www.aviationschoolsonline.com/flight-schools/California/ As for flight training, even if you join the Airforce it doesn't hurt to have some hours in your logbook. As for civilian training, there are many different kinds of schools and programs, the trick is finding the ones that fit your goals and personality. I learned at a small school at my local airport, but there are also big schools with accelerated programs like the military uses and university flight schools that would do well for career pilots. The site above has a lot of good information on flight training and flight schools, so feel free to check it out. --Matt Everett, private pilot and aviation writer
  • I am thinking about buying a personal midsized jet. I live in Southern California but I don't know the laws i need to know when owning an airplane or helicopter. -Can i build my own private airstrip or do i need to launch my plane from an airport. -If i have my private airstrip, can i make international flights or only domestic -can i make international flights using a public airport. -how much does it cost to build an airstrip -where can i keep my aircraft, in a custom built garage or in a specific place. -what are the regulations to building and storing an aircraft If anybody could answer these questions, i would be really grateful (i don't wan to spend money investing in an airstrip or airplane and then be fined)
  • If you have a large enough piece of land, and your local zoning laws allow it, you could build your own airstrip. You'd likely need enough space for a 6000-foot runway. You could make international flights, but when returning to the U.S., you'll need to land at the nearest available airport for Customs inspection. If you have the funds available, build a hangar. Otherwise, keep the plane at an airport. You'll need to lease hangar or tie-down space.
  • I've been in the aviation business 26 years and and familiar with all the aspects of what you have asked. If you'd like to pay a professional consulting fee for my services I'll be happy to answer all of your questions. If you rely on answers from less than knowledgeable, inexperienced people, you deserve what you get. If you can afford several million dollars for an aircraft, and several million more to build an airfield, you can afford to hire a professional consultant.
  • I"m looking to go to Kaplan to finish my bachelors, even though I"ll be likely 35,000 in debt afterwards. I'm looking to do this because I'm not sure the U of WI is working for me - after 5.5 years of being in school, I'm still not there. Has anyone been to both a state school and an online private school like Kaplan? It's not a waste of money, is it? Thank you.
  • An education is never a waste of $$ and time. I suggest you to contact an online University like California InterContinental University (www.caluniversity.edu) and ask for a scholarship to finishing your Bachelor's degree. Furthermore, the tuition is much lesser as compared to other online Universities. You can call 1-866-687-2258 (free call: only costs you time to dial but will have joy listening to the Scholarship potential) Best wishes.
  • I'm dying to own a horse and I'm just wondering how much it will cost not for the actual price of the horse, but for the upkeep and everything. You know, boarding, food, vet bills, farrier cost etc. So can some body tell me how much owning a horse will cost, not including the actual price of buying the horse? Thanks!
  • Selena, asking "how much does it cost to keep a horse?" is sort of like asking, "how high is up?" because it's an open-ended question. The cost of boarding a horse is very much dependent on your location. Example, in California, where I live, full board in a box stall, which includes all hay and bedding, and the horse is fed and the stall cleaned for you, ranges from about $475/month to over $750/month, depending on the stable-- the low end is the municipal stables, the high end is for private clubs. But if you get in your car and and go east, board drops as you get out into the Riverside area, where you can find comparable board situations for about $400. (Right now it's hard to get a firm quote for board, because the drought has made good quality hay hard to find, and full board stables are reluctant to commit to a price for any long term, because the cost of hay is going to go up big-time if the drought continues into next year.) If you go to places out in Texas, or Arizona, or the Dakotas, or other areas that aren't heavily urbanized, you'll pay a lot less. If you budget $450-550/month for a full-service stable, you shouldn't come up short. If hay continues to go up, who knows. If you can find a place where you do feeding and stall-cleaning yourself, you can probably keep your costs around $300/month for stall rent and feed, possibly less. Also, cost depends on how fancy the place you board your horse is. At high-end stables, barns are showplaces, you'll have your own tack room adjacent to the stall; there are clean restrooms with hot and water; there's a lounge for boarders, with heat and air conditioning; there are vending machines, an office for the manager and possibly for trainers; the driveway and parking are paved; there are wash stalls, turn-out pens, at least one riding ring, a hot-walker, an area for the vet and the shoer to work, and everything is in repair and clean and landscaped. At the other end of the scale, you have places where there's a port-a-potty for the boarders (you bring your own toilet paper), no lounge, no ring, nothing is paved, everything is makeshift, and you do your own mucking out and feeding. You can find places like that cheap, but you just pay basic rent for your pen (no stall, if you want a shelter for your horse, you build it yourself in the pen) and you have to provide your own feed. Vet bills are also area-dependent, as vets charge more in high-rent areas because overhead costs are higher. A healthy horse that doesn't require more than normal vaccinations and parasite control, you can expect vet bills will not exceed $400-500/year. But the problem is that horses are prone to problems, and when problems happen the costs go up fast. I recommend an emergency fund of at least $5,000. That doesn't mean you have to have $5,000 in cash in the bank, but it does mean you need to be able to have access to $5,000 immediately in emergencies. Most people I know of deal with this by having a credit card with a limit of $5,000 or higher for horse emergencies. And everyone I know of who has kept horses for more than 5 years has had at least one vet emergency that ran $1,000 or higher. Shoeing is usually something around $50-150 every six to eight weeks, depending on your location; but I also know of people who had horses with special problems like navicular disease that had to spend $200-300 every six to eight weeks to keep their horses sound. You didn't mention training for the horse or lessons for you, and those can run as much as board or even more. You also have costs for "consumables" used for your horse, things like shampoo, fly repellent, hoof dressing, saddle soap, and any feed supplements you choose to use. Those are things that can run from $20-30/month on up to $200/month or more if you show your horse (if you show, you spend a lot more on shampoo, hoof dressing, mane and tail conditioners, brighteners for white markings, coat conditioners and spray hair polishes and things like that). I hope that gives you a "ballpark" idea of what keeping a horse might cost. FWIW, the best way to get a handle on board costs is to look at places in the area where you want to keep the horse and ask them what they charge for board, and what things are included. Hope that helps.
  • The trainers fees will depend on the trainer. The feed, hay, straw, tack, exercise boy, hot-walker, groom are all included in what the trainer will charge. You will be billed separately for the horse shoes (about once a month, unless the horse needs to change shoes for a race), vet bills (usually about $200 on race day), pony boy, running the horse. If you get Bob Baffert or Todd Pletcher..you can expect the training bill to be about $400 PER DAY. Most other trainers are going to run about $65 - $85 per day. The biggest issue that you will have is just that you have no control over what the trainer is doing with the horse and the vet. The trainer has total control over the care of the horse, and he can run up your vet bills to thousands of dollars a month...only thing you can do is fire him and move your horse. If you decide to be your own trainer...you need a license, comp insurance, and you will have to hire a groom, hot-walker, exercise boy, etc. You will have to be in the barn yourself and handle deliveries of feed, hay, straw. you will have to organize the farrier, vet, jockeys, pony-boy, etc. And..clean the stalls, make sure the horses have water, feed, hay. Be certain that they get a bath each day and their legs properly taken care of. It is a job that takes about 3 hours every morning and another 2 each night...and more on race day.
  • Hmm well they eat alot so maybe 50 dollars a month thats what mine costs.
  • You can't magically get rid of taxes simply by becoming an S-corp. You'd have to pay yourself a "reasonable" wage--which from the IRS point of view is the same income you had before you incorporated. The difference being that you would pay yourself via a W-2. The 15.3% of SE tax would be split, but as employee, you would pay 1/2 and a 100% shareholder of s-corp, you'd pay the other half, so there wouldn't be any savings.... Worse, this could cost you more money in having to get payroll forms done, the 1120s by march 15 and any state franchise taxes. (California charges $800/year.)
  • You can retire at any age. You just need the money flow. Social security sets retirement ages (65ish), based on life expectancy in the 1930s. (It's idea is to have half the people die before retirement age. Because of the increase of life expectancy, this hasn't worked out). Federal law sets IRA withdrawal ages (with some exceptions). Private companies, if they offer retirement plans, have their own rules (but if there is a 401(k) plan involved, they have to follow the federal rules).

  • There is no set age, when he wants to retire, he retires. Social Security Retirement starts with limited benefits at age 62, or full benefits at age 65.
  • Right now i am a student in the american university in Cairo, Egypt. i am in my fourth semester and once its done i will have 52 credits. i want to move to California for the 2012 Fall semester, but the problem is that all the colleges and universities deadlines for applications have already passed. what can i do to get in college for next fall, it doesn't matter even if i get into a college for one semester then transfer again into a different college on spring 2013
  • Enroll in a community college for one semester. http://www.laccd.edu/Student visas http://travel.state.gov/visa/temp/types/...Transferring credits from a community college http://www.lacitycollege.edu/services/tr...http://www.assist.org/web-assist/welcome.html more on college admissions https://sites.google.com/site/paul7collegeinfo/ Be warned that due to the current state budget crisis the California State University system is in crisis. Many students report that they are unable to get into classes they need to graduate. The University of California system has been less affected by the cuts, at the price of skyrocketing tuition. This problem does not affect private schools such as Loyola, Pepperdine, and USC. Also be warned that, in general, higher education is extraordinarily expense in the United States. Students coming in from overseas are shocked. You can also attend the summer sessions at many colleges. Attending summer school does not constitute admission to the university. Or you can attend the Extension division of the college. http://cesp.usc.edu/ http://www.lmu.edu/about/services/registrar/registration/Summer.htm http://www.calstatela.edu/extension/ Because extension division classes are money-makers for the university, they don't have the same funding problems as regular classes. (They are expensive, though.) Attending Extension division classes at a college does not constitute admission to the university. https://www.uclaextension.edu/r/default.aspx It is not too late to apply as a transfer student to Occidental. http://www.oxy.edu/Apply.xml Inquire at other schools about late admissions programs.
  • I would highly recommend looking in to school in other states. Many schools still have applications open. CA state school are very expensive for out of state students. UCLA is $50,000 per year.
  • You know Greg Mortenson just got exposed as a phony, right? He made up like half the book, also made up half the schools he supposedly built, and the money from his orginization is being used like his own private piggy bank. Watch the 60 Minuets special, it's really good. And if you have to read this book for school, show your teacher the 60 minuets special too. I'm surprised this book has been assigned to you after his exposure.
  • It is because it costs a lot of money to run the State University system. Hundreds and hundreds of employees need to be paid for their work, and I'm not just talking about the teachers. And then there are the monthly bills for things like gas, electricity, water. If the money to cover the costs cannot be raised through taxes and private contributions then it must be raised by increasing tuition and other student costs. It's the only way. If course, if our priorities were really correct then the whole State system would be completely funded by the public and there would be no tuition; but we live in another reality.
  • To go along with what the last person said, Obama has signed a stimulus packaged which will give financial aid to more students, and also increase award amounts. So, since the students will get more money to go to school, the schools can charged a higher rate now. The reason why it was raised 276 is because starting in 2009-2010, students will get around 300 extra dollars from pell.
  • The University of Spoiled Children (USC). Pro: 1) They have a great network. I heard a lot of corporations hire students from them. 2) If you work for them, your children can easily attend the university even if their grades suck. 3) They are a well known university. Con: 1) It is a private school, so tuition is high. 2) Most of everyone attending there have money, so if you are poor, then you might not feel at ease. 3) It's located in LA where traffic is pretty congested at times.
  • Its a great school in general, good alumni network, near many things to do. Its located in a not so great area, expensive, and bad air quality sometimes.
  • Really nice campus--you feel like you're in your own little oasis. Great academics. In a bad neighborhood. L.A. isn't a great place to be in in general...having a car helps though.
  • FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. You definitely should complete the FAFSA as that's the only way you can get any federal student aid. Depending on your financial situation, you might get a Pell Grant and you can definitely get federal student loans (which are always better than private loans). You should complete the application here: https://fafsa.ed.gov/
  • Following are the terms and conditions for FAFSA • If you enroll less than full-time but at least half-time (6 credit hours for undergraduates and 4 credit hours for graduate students), all of your aid except Direct Loans will be reduced based on your level of enrollment. • Less than full-time enrollment not only reduces the amount of aid you are eligible to receive, it also may affect your future aid eligibility and your satisfactory academic progress. • Some scholarships require full-time enrollment before disbursement, so you could lose your scholarship entirely if you reduce your enrollment level. • If you drop courses and fall below the minimum credit hour requirements, you may be required to repay all or part of the aid you received. • Courses for which you are wait-listed and classes that you are auditing are not included in your level of enrollment.
  • I was seeking some advice. I bought a hyosung gt250r from someone in reno nevada a few days ago. I went to get it registered today and have now found out it doesn't meet the California epa emission laws because there is no sticker which states otherwise.

  • Your Hyosung dealer might be able to help. You might have to buy new carbs or modify the existing ones. Did you buy it from a dealer? He should have known it wouldn't be any good for CA - assuming you told him that's where it was going. You might be able to get your money back. Or if you bought it privately, throw yourself on the mercy of the vendor and hope s/he will be kind to you. Or see if you can find an address you can pretend to live at in NV, thus retaining your NV rego. Or move out of CA. (Sorry, couldn't help myself). Edit: Hyosungs aren't "manufactured in other states". They are made in Korea, obviously in 2 versions - a 49-state version and a CA version. Since your dealer doesn't appear to have offered any advice as to how to modify yours to meet CA standards, I guess your only option now is to sell it out-of-state and start again.
  • A dealer may know what the differences are between the CA and 49-state versions, and what a conversion would cost. If not, it would be a matter of comparing part numbers, and possibly checking in service manuals, to figure out the differences. Hopefully, it's only a matter of jetting changes in the carbs.

  • Hi, I want to run for City Council for a city in Southern California. I believe they are elected at-large and am dealing with 20 year + incumbents. I am willing to work hard and do whatever it is necessary but have very little money. Do I need to get sponsorships or something? I see that the Council is backed by developers, private investors, and city contractors. Any tips would be welcomed and greatly appreciated.

  • If you live in the school district and you want to send your child to your local school for preschool, then you should be able to do it. However, if children from low income households are given firstpriorityy, then you might not get approved. In that case, your child is better off in a private preschool. It will cost you money, but it will be worth every penny.
  • I have a very silly question im hoping anyone can help me with. I am a canadian citizen, and will soon have near $400,000CD from a settlement. Tired of this cold wet country, Id LOVE to purchase an established business in California. I am well aware of the economy down there & especially California's problems. Looking around on such websites as www.bizbuysell.com & www.usabizmart.com I've seen a few interesting businesses, including a $400,000 car wash business that grosses $720,000 & nets $400,000, and also $380,000 steak house that grosses $1.4M & nets $300,000. My question might be silly but would I have any chance in securing any lending from any type of private lending firm or anything if I put a large amount of my own money up regardless if I have a visa or green card? or because I have no citizenship or credit there im guessing I wont be able to borrow correct?
  • The short answer is, yes! It's more difficult to get financing across borders but it happens all the time. However, do you know what the #1 source of funding is in cases like this? It's not the banks or the government or any business loan company. It's the seller! Yes, seller financing via the seller taking a "note" for a chunk of the purchase price is how most business buys work. There are some good books at the link below. You could also speak to the business brokers at bizbuysell etc. One of those sites, bizquest.com, has a blog written by one such broker - a very helpful guy who regularly answers questions posed to him.
  • in accordance to you a number of solutions you're a journalist, an artist, and a photographer and you reside in Canada. Your question is so difficult as to be meaningless althouh previous solutions sugest which you anticipate Canada to do each and every thing for you with out any attempt on your area. while you're spending all some time coming up paintings, yet additionally are so busy as a handyman which you would be able to not create, then I might desire to question what this is you're doing and if, certainly, this question is in accordance with actuality or delusion. surprisingly on the grounds that, except you got here right here (while you're certainly an immigrant) on humanitarian grounds, you will possibly choose a job right here to return in the 1st place. no person right here has unfastened land, all land in Canada isn't owned via the Queen and all people right here, not in basic terms immigrants, might desire to paintings troublesome to get something. while you're an immigrant to Canada then possibly you will possibly desire to re-examine residing right here and locate someplace else to visit. besides the shown fact that permit me warn you that everywhere you flow will require an attempt on your area, there is not any usa called "unfastened lunch".
  • You need a bachelor's degree. You don't have to major in pre-med, although certainly many students planning to go to med school do. You will need to take certain science classes to prepare you for the MCAT, but if you want to major even in something outside of science, you can. What I would recommend would be one of two things. Either go to a UC or to a good private liberal arts school, because they put enough money into things like labs to give you a good experience.
  • There are no "pre-med schools." So after high school you need to get your undergrad degree while taking pre-med classes. You can get a degree in anything you like (english, biology..etc) but you must take the required pre-med classes. These include: a year of biology a year of chemistry a year of organic chemistry a year of english (some schools) a year of calculus (most med schools will not consider AP credits) a year of physics You can take these classes and get your degree at UCI. Maintain a high GPA and during/after your junior year you will need to take the MCAT. It is kind of like this SAT in that it is needed to enter medical school. The test is much more difficult than the SAT and tests your knowledge and comprehension of physics, general chemistry, biology (mostly genetics and microbiology), organic chemistry, and verbal reasoning. Most students then apply to medical school if they have maintained a 3.5 GPA or above and have received an MCAT score of 30 or higher (out of 45). You can apply to UCI for medical school also, but going there for undergrad does not help or hurt your chances of getting into the medical school. The average GPA for students who get into UCI medical school is 3.66 and an MCAT of 33. After 4 year of undergrad (with pre-med classes) and 4 years of medical school, you would then apply to a residency program. This program lasts anywhere for 3-7 years, depending on the specialty (surgery is 7 years). If you want to specialize in cardiovascular surgery, orthopedics, etc...there is additional training required following residency.
  • Basically, you wish to have a well university with technological know-how systems. Aside from the UCs, the satisfactory could usually be Cal Tech, Stanford, the Claremont faculties. Beyond that you simply would desire to seem at USC, Santa Clara, Occidental College, the University of San Francisco, Loyola Marymount University, and the University of San Diego.
  • its very easy for American citizens to move to Canada. if you are a pharmacist. there are better oppurtunities in US than Canada. Most Pharmacists make a lot of money because of their insane hours they work. But if you want to suceed its best to work for a private pharmacy and try to own atleast 10% of the pharmacy to start with the owner gives you the partnership as long as you are trustworthy and hardworking. that can slowly develop into your own pharmacy. I know many pharmacists own pharmacy atleast in 5 to 10 year period.
  • There is a website that helps pharmacists find jobs in the US if you are interested - it's www.msrecruiters.com.
  • Be careful. They may be selling the bike due to not being able to get it registered in California or they are selling their money pit. Money Pit in that they keep trying to get it fixed, it runs for a while and then requires you fix the next broken item. Many of the china-scoots being eBay'ed. I did a quick search for maxfine and I didn't find any good comments about thier products. I would read the comment on the last comment of the 3cents link below. FYI... I did not read this comment until after I made my comment above about registration. Save you self some grief and get a Kymco and ride it... not fix it.
  • IT is a cheap Chines import and not worth anything, they are trouble. If you want a good scooter for a good price look at Kymco they are much cheaper than the Jap makers( Who they make motors for) and better quality. Kymco is rated number three in the world and one and two are not made in Japan. A 50cc Kymco is about $1300 +t,t,t with a good two year warranty.
  • A family of 4 in, let's say either Orange County, California, or Long Island New York, would need to earn how much to: -Have a comfortable, tastefully furnished 4 bedroom home over 3000 square feet in area. -At least 2 late model vehicles, one a SUV and the other a European sedan like a BMW -2 children in private or parochial schools -A summer cottage near a lake or ocean -A boat of medium size -a couple vacations a year -dinner out at least once or twice a week -enough income to pay all the bills with some extra to invest -never having to concern themselves too often with financial matters -more than enough income to put something away for a comfortable retirement, the kid's college funds, a rainy day fund, and some extra to play the market. In essence, to live a comfortable, upper-middle-class lifestyle, free from most financial worries. Give me a good estimate or range of how much before taxes one would need to earn to afford such a life in NY/LA
  • About $10,200 a month I think would make sense in order to meet all of these objectives. So probably each person making $75k - 80k would be sufficient. Here's what I came up for as a rough estimate... With this salary I think you would be rather upper-middle class but with all the expenses, you might be just barely getting by. 4 bedroom home 3,000 square feet: $750,000 roughly $3000 a month 2 vehicles: $400 + $200 in insurance 2 children in parochial schools: $2,000 a month A summer cottage: $1500 A medium boat: $200/month A couple of vacations a year: $1000/month Dinner out at least once or twice a week: $150 * 4 = $600 Bills: $1000 Extra for investments or fun money: $1000/month
  • No less than $500,000 take home annually, so approximately $850,000 gross salary annually.
  • Hi ALL Yahoo Answer Responders: So my car was stolen on 8/7/08 the same day we had renewed our auto insurance...(I know I know save your witty remarks) It was recovered on 8/9/08 and of course the Ins Co., isnt sure if they want to pay for the loss which they deemed the car a total loss(what a surprise!) So of course I have seeked attorney assistance but theres a TWIST! The dealership where I bought my car from was shut down due to scams and frauds. The co-owner of the company left and took all my info from the sale. On Sept 19, the co-owner took my car and since then I spoke to him twice. He's claiming he took it as a repossession (?). The payments I had sent from April 2008-June 2008 were returned to the dealership. So to this day I'm out about $4800.00. I haven't heard a word from the insurance company but like I mentioned I have called an attorney and their "looking into it" as of Sept 29th,2008. Can someone shed some light.
  • When you bought the car, and were making payments, were the payments to go to a civil party or to a bank? That makes a HUGE difference. Also, read your contract carefully, if this was a private party who you were making payments to, you should have had a clause in the contract which states in the event of a repossession who would be retaining the vehicle. Also, if the private party were to reposses the vehicle, he would have had to notify you that the payment account was delinquent. No payments should ever be made to a dealership after the car is driven off the lot, and the down payment is made. This sounds like a hot mess. Let your attorney look into and be patient. I know its hard, and it sucks being out that amount of money, but let your attorney deal with it. Here's a link for repossession laws in CA. http://www.californiarepossessionlaw.com...http://www.lemonlawcenter.com/protectyou...

  • Do you know that tuition fee at a private college or university or out of state public college or university will be up to about for times higher (possibly over $20,000 additional per year) than at a public university in Ohio? Your academic record will not result in admission to a school with academics for which it is worthwhile to pay or borrow that additional amount which could be about $100,000 over four years. May I suggest that you attend university or college in Ohio.

  • I have a situation I need help in. I’ve been a caregiver for about 2 years now with a company. However I recently quit working with the company and got a job working as a private caregiver meaning I work directly with the clients and not through a company. I was getting trained the past two weekends with their current caregiver who now works during the week and I’ll be working during the weekends. This new job is 24hr care in the clients home. I take care of a lady who needs a lot of help (she had a stroke a few years back and is not able to move her left side of the body meaning we use a machine and special equipment to get her up and out of bed we also clean, change and bathe her take care of pills etc...) I also work with her husband who we also have to give pills to every meal.. not only that but we cook and clean the house as well. Back to the topic the client’s son is the who one who deals with all the money. So basically I told him I wanted to get paid at a set rate of $10 an hour 24hr X $10= 240 which means I’d be getting paid $240 for every day I work. (at the previous company I worked we got paid $10 every hour and for every additional client we got paid $10 extra for those hours we worked) However he wants to pay me $50 for everyday I trained with the caregiver because he says it was two caregivers working doing a 1 person job. And only wants to pay me 180 a day. Is this fair? What are my California work rights as a caregiver?
  • you are NOT an employee, you are an independent contractor, labor laws (in general) do NOT apply to you... you work for the family NOT a business, the son has said what he is willing to pay; you either accept that or you move on to someplace else.. ((as far as I, and the state's website know)) the minimum wage in CA is $8.00 an hour, it is higher in San Francisco and possibly other cities or counties that I am not aware of... http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/FAQ_MinimumWa...
  • http://www.lawyersandsettlements.com/art...Once you moved from the agency to being on your own, you are an independent contractor, so basically no rights. It appears that CA has just raised the minimum wage to $10 per hour. When you was in an agency, they can charge more, since, even before the wage law changed, they have expenses to pay, running an agency. Did you leave, since not getting enough work every week, or, could have weeks w/out pay? Your prior agency could have had benefits they had to pay, insurance etc. You will now owe taxes on your earnings and may have lost benefits since leaving the agency. The $50 for training sounds reasonable to me. But, if you don't like the $180 daily wage, then, he can choose to find someone else to do for $180. The total amount they are paying to take care of this lady is costing them $1,260 per week,or $5,040 per month. Most people don't have that kind of money to spend, and usually someone with this type of treatment ends up in a nursing home, and after they sell all of their assets, then Medicaid takes over. Yes this hard work, but you might want to consider going back to your former agency, or find another employer that can protect you under work laws.
  • You have to make at least minimum wage. What the pay is should have been negotiated before you started.
  • So the situation is that I am currently not doing so well in my current 4 year university. I'm at the point where I might get dismissed from the university itself due to family circumstances and slightly failing grades. I had recently decided I wanted to pursue a degree in nursing and eventually become a Nurse Practitioner. I originally had wanted to get my Bachelor's degree in Psychology at my current university and then head towards an Entry-level Master's degree or an Accelerated BSN afterwards. But because of my current circumstances, I might not be able to do that anymore. I am currently a 3rd year student, 20 years old. I am thinking of other options like trying to apply for a private nursing university. I live in Southern California, near the Inland Empire. I was wondering if it is okay for a girl my age to apply as a freshman for the 4 year BS in Nursing programs at...let's say, Azusa Pacific University. I know people usually apply to these programs straight out of high school, but at the moment I want to get an RN license as soon as I can and the 4 year Bachelor's I had originally planned to get won't necessarily be helping me in my future career in Neonatal Nursing. I just want your opinions and suggestions please. I don't think I can apply to community college classes right now mainly because there aren't any more classes available in my area right now and I need to figure out my schooling situation by the end of winter break. Thank you for helping me! (:
  • It sounds like you may be a pretty good candidate for an Accelerated Nursing Program, and there are some pretty good options out there, including online nursing degrees. Since the criteria for Advanced Practice Nursing is changing, have you considered looking into an Accelerated MSN program? The BSN programs are great, but it may be possible to spend just a little more time and secure the higher degree, giving you the ability to start working sooner, within the discipline you've chosen. I would definitely recommend you explore the online options that are available. There are many that are endorsed by the AACN and can be a smart solution in terms of time, money and ultimately pursuing your dream.
  • I've been working here for almost 4 years now. My salary is based on company profits. We did great last year and now I'm making a good amount of money. The owner of his CA based private company is having 2nd thoughts about paying me. My contract states that I am to be paid this commission. He really doesn't want to pay me that much. I'm afraid if I fight him on it, I'll be fired. Should I let him adjust my pay? Does he have that right and if not, what are my rights? If you need more details, please ask. Thanks.
  • Isn't California a "right-to-work state"? I believe so, which (unfortunately for you in this case) means that your employer can change terms of employment at any time, with or without notice. The flipside is that you are free to do do the same, so are under no "legal" obligation to give notice if you wish to quit, but of course "no notice= no references". Why is the company really making this change? If you are "making a good amount of money" is everybody, and so maybe they need to trim expenses to remain competitive? People are usually the most expensive expense a company has. Good luck. Tread carefully! And always remember 90c on the dollar is better than nothing on the dollar!
  • I always thought that a contract was a legal and binding agreement between all parties involved. He can ask to renegotiate but that doesn't mean you have to do anything more then what your current contract says. You should talk to a lawyer though. You might find out that your contract isn't worth the paper its written on. Good Luck
  • Depends on what the original contract says about renegotiating or changing it. If he does not have the right to change it spelled out in writing, and the amount is significant, contact a lawyer.
  • it's called talking....you talk it over with your boss......you come to an understanding that is suitable for both of you....if you can't....it's called finding new employment.
  • Your question is vague so I'm answering this in two parts. Assuming you are a senior in high school and planning to go to college, the short answer is yes. Colleges will accept you depending on the entrance criteria, SAT, AP and honors classes and so on. Your counselor will know and have very specific information. If your question is referring to going from one high school to another high school, your choice would be limited by where you live if this is a public school. Additionally it is difficult for many public schools to accept you because of personal choice. If there were special circumstances that would dictate you being placed in another school for safety, the school district would arrange it but you can't go just anywhere. If you were to move and live in a different district, you would need to go to the school in that district. Public schools do allow students to move from one district to another district by what is known as an Inter-district Transfer and this is available from most districts. Private schools would have similar restrictions for seniors coming to their school. Providing you have the money, you may get into any private school and again they would look at your transcripts to see if you are a good candidate for their school. Interesting question and I hope this is not a situation embedded in reality.

(2) You have skills that are in short supply in the US e.g. scientific or medical training. A degree is normally a must. Or you have superior specialist skills with at least 12 years experience. (H visas)applications next received on 1st April 2015 for an Oct start (3) You have an Employer who is willing to transfer you - but even the employer has to make a good case for you - so you have to be a manager unless you fall under category (2) above.(L visas) (4) You may get a Green card in the diversity lottery (UK citizens, except N.Ireland, are not generally eligible unless you, your spouse or parents were born abroad or held a different citizenship. (5)You own or buy business (does not get you permanent resident status i.e. no green card)You must be a national of a qualifying Treaty countries. The business must have a minimum value of around $150k (more the better) bearing in mind you will need somewhere to live and with any startup business you will need at least 2 years living money as back up. So a figure of $350k would be a nearer minimum (E-2 visas) (6)You are an "investor" i.e. you have at least US $1m in assets to bring with you. half of that in a few areas. And your background will be investigated to the hilt. (EB-5 visas) (7)You have a close relative (mother, father, brother, sister and no further) who is an US citizen who would sponsor you, approx time this take 2-12 years?

Writing for jobs is really a waste of time; likewise US employers have no idea what foreign qualification are or mean (except Degrees) it may pay you to get your qualification translated into a US equivalent, there are Companies that do this (www.wes.org) .. But if you are getting a visa under (2) above then you need a job offer before you can get the visa. Your Employer will be your sponsor this will cost them upward of $5k. So you can see you have to be offering something really special to get considered They may also have to prove to the Dept of labor that there is no American who can do the job if the position is to be permanent © DO NOT USE VISA CONSULTANTS
  • Jump the fence, live in the shadows and patiently await amnesty. Look up "Sanctuary City"... go to one and never leave. If you arrive by plane, you need a return ticket, 'proof' of job and residence back home so they think you will return, a calm demeanor, a list of plans and sites to see and things to do. America is pro-criminal - legally you can't get in, but do it illegally and half the country defends you and will eventually give you citizenship.
  • LOL! You're not moving to US & getting any job unless you are a US citizen. And over 33 million US citizens are currently looking for work, so even if you are a citizen & return to US, your chances of finding any job might not be worth a bean. If you are not a US citizen, you will need a suitable employment visa to work in the US. Those are all temporary. And only qualified employers can apply for employment visas for their qualified foreign employees.

  • The side-by-side comparison websites are good, but can't explain the differences in policies. My suggestion will always be to contact a licensed independent insurance agent in your area and schedule an appointment. You will be able to explain your personal health situation and find the right coverage for you. In most cases, it doesn't cost you any additional $$$ to buy your coverage through an agent. The commission is built into the cost. Do you think the website owners do it for free? No, they get a commission just like any other agent. If you're paying it anyway, get the most for your money. I don't list my website because I am not trying to sell you anything, only to give you objective advice on the topic. Besides, I don't do business that way.
  • the insurance laws in California are pretty extreme, and because of that its really tough to find affordable private health insurance. I'd advise to stay with Kaiser if you can. If its not an option, try Blue Cross or any other Wellpoint product.
  • I like the flexibility of a PPO. You get a break if you use the suggested doctors. But you can always choose the doctor you feel is best for you. I was able to go directly to a specialist without prior approval from my PPO. I have FirstCare.
  • Be careful that you don't fal into the "name trap". Your best bet is to get a free side by side comparison quote so that you can compare rates and coverage and make an informed decision with that information. The following site has a great free comparison quote feature
  • Anthem is good.
  • I am an Oregon resident, but I want to buy a car in California. I know how to avoid the tax fees, but the license fee's do I have to pay? Because I want to register it in OR, so it wouldn't make sense if I had to pay for CA license plates right? Also can anyone reccommend a good cheap delivery place if the dealer isn't willing to deliver?
  • about the only way you can avoid tax, license and plate fees, is show your oregon license, demand a 24 hour road trip tag if the vehicle has no plates, and get the vehicle into oregon within 24 hours. some dealers may not play ball, because they want the money. It is much less hassle to buy from a private party and drive the car to oregon. I tried a few times to buy a car off a dealer to take to oregon, but thier excessive greedy behavior caused them to lose the sale. good luck, you are supposed to be able to do it, but some dealers refuse to cooperate without creating excess profit they do not deserve, keep in mind, if you pay the ca tax just to get the car, the dealer will more likely than not pocket the cash, because he knows you are from out of state anyhow, and oregon has no sales tax.
  • How much more school i would have to take and what do I need to do to get a larger salary. Also how much would I get paid if i live in Bakersfield California. I really want to become one because I always loved studying teeth and cleaning my own teeth but people are saying dont do it and become a registered nurse because hygienist dont make any money and RNs do. So whats the truth, how much do they really make?
  • Become a nurse. You can make the same if not more and get a job immediately. In some states you cant find a job as a hygienist because there are too many and not enough jobs. I live in the North East and cant find a job here. I just graduated last may from hygiene school (it takes 2-4 years depending on if you want an associates or bachelors degree, doesnt matter which you get to work for a private dentist). I am willing to work fulltime and just found a job only working ONE day a week! I cant live off that. I am struggling. I suggest not going for hygiene right now. Choose nursing. Also hygiene is really stressful on your body. Wrist problems, back problems and sore muscles. It looks easy but isnt.
  • If you want to teach in a public school, you'll need a university degree in art with a specialty in photography. There are some accredited art schools that allow you to specialize in photography, but there are very few, if any, full time photography jobs except in art schools at the university level. With the way the budget is going now, very few public schools offer art at all. Photography is usually a club, sponsored by a teacher or parent volunteer who happens to be interested in it. Of course, you can always give private lessons or work through a recreation center, but the money won't be very good.
  • Unfortunately other not-so-nice people wanting good money also have the same idea, and they are very serious about growing their crop "for profit". If you are willing to pay some nice people with semi-automatic weapons to look after you and your crop on a 24/7 basis you may want to stick with private use yields.
  • it is not uncommon for those with some wide-spread point of rigidity to record it being bigger to out of control proportions via smoking pot. i'd recommend you discover yet another variety of interest. that's complicated whilst all your friends do it. possibly you may discover your different pastimes and locate people who like the comparable issues. there are a lot of human beings obtainable who choose to no longer smoke or regulate their theory via utilising chemical compounds. Marijuana is a gentle hallucinogen so, jointly because it is not difficulty-loose, it makes absolute sense which you will have this way of reaction. you won't have this reaction returned next time, yet you would be able to. With the various chemical make up of this organic drug, that's continually a raffle. i'm hoping you identify against further experimentation.
  • I am from a developing country and decided to continue my study in an European country.I have BA in graphic design . Honestly i do not have enough money for my purpose, so I decided to study in Italy or Germany because of the low rates of tuition fee and cost of living but I have no idea about those countries. I have Ielts band 6 right now but if I`ll go to another country I have to learn their language too. Do you think that which country is better for me? Is it worth to learn another language like German or Italian in order to study free in one of them? Do you know any free university which is in English in my field?Do you know how can i receive scholarships for students of developing countries?
  • America... specifically in california in a COMMUNITY college (For cheap and good education). Then you can transfer out to a university. DO NOT go to private schools. But honestly...don't go to school if you are doing art...You are wasting your time and money.
  • i comprehend that the main suitable scientific college interior the international is in all probability UC San Francisco on Parnassus. approximately 25 miles south is Stanford (proper 3 or so interior the international). yet they're high priced. attempt US information & international record's scores of Med colleges to experience you desires. reliable success.
  • I AM BUYING A CAR TOMORROW IN A PRIVATE SALE, THE OWNER IS REMOVING THE PLATES BECAUSE THEY ARE CUSTOM PLATES... HOW DO I GET NEW CUSTOM PLATES AND IS IT POSSIBLE TO SWITCH MY NON-CUSTOM PLATES FROM MY OLD CAR THAT WAS TOTALED BUT STILL IN MY POSSESSION TO THE NEW CAR? IS IT GOING TO COST ME MORE MONEY SINCE THEY ARE REMOVING THE PLATES??? ALSO I KNOW THIS MAY SOUND CRAZY BUT IF I SAY I BOUGHT THE CAR FOR LESS THAN I REALLY DID CAN THE DMV FIND THAT INFO OUT???? THANKS!
  • yes maybe just ask the DMV
  • IDK about custom plates but in the old days the plate stayed on the car. What you really pay as opposed to what is on paper is your business. I think you will just have to get new plates if all you have are the generic kind.
  • I would like to continue my studies and specifically study Earth and Space Science and secondary Ed. My great, great, great grandfather actually made a huge donation of millions of dollars to build an astronomy building at a California college. This was about 150 years ago. He gave away his entire fortune and nothing to his family. Do you think the college would at least give me a discount or something if I decided to go there? Thanks.
  • No. Private schools sometimes give an extra look at what they call "legacy" students, but that is generally if one of your parents, not a great, great, grandfather went there. And there is definitely no discount for families of donors - are you kidding? They will probably look to you to be the next big donor!
  • Probably not, sorry. If anything they might give you a couple thousand dollars, but not an education for free.
  • That's the kind of thing that I'd think would get you admission but not a scholarship. I don't think they give scholarships for that.
  • My son came to live with me in Sept of 09. I currently still pay child support for my son(payroll deduct)and my ex writes me a check for what I pay back to me. I am getting tired of dealing with the check thing and she has refused to pay me any child support. I applied at the Attorney General and they finally (yesterday) received my application. They say it could take up to 3 months to process. Does it normally take that long? I talked with a attorney who said he could probably get it done in a month for $500 total charge. Should I wait around for the Attorney General or just hire my own attorney? If I with the attorney general and she hires a attorney herself will I end up having to hire me one too anyway? Can I get back child support for the 11 months I have had him and she has not paid anything? Thanks!!
  • In california it's different, but the same. Don't waste your money on the rush thing, normally it doesn't take 3 months to see a Child Support attorney, it could be just a matter of a few weeks. And if you have all your ducks in order, you should be able to get all your money back. Don't hire a private attorney, unless you can afford it, if you do everything right you can do it yourself without any problems.

  • i got no idea!
  • Based on the answers so far, i think i should add some context. The amount in question i would be donating would be in the $500-$1,500 range for expenses like Chamber of Commerce dues, PO Box dues, business cards, general office supplies, etc. to get the charity up and running until fund raising begins. My non-profit is incorporated in the state of California and currently pending approval of 501 c3 status from the IRS.
  • Yes with certain limits. Your charity is probably a private foundation so cash contributions to it are limited to 30% of your adjusted gross income with a 5 year carryover for excess amounts.
  • if your non profit is an IRS approved 501(C)(3), any funds you personally contribute to the organization would be reported as such if the amount exceeded $250 in an official letter to you surely your organization has enough separation of powers that the management of the money is entirely separate and not in anyway controlled by any one person. your suggestion smacks of collusion but if the controls of your organization are well founded, you should have no problem
  • Not unless the non-profit has 501(c)3 designation from the IRS. There are many non-profits that aren't 301(c)3, and contributions to them are not deductible.
  • If its falling in the category of charity fund, its tax exempt. You are to pay income tax for your other source of income.
  • You should probably take a couple years to properly prepare for such a trip. First you'll want to save enough money to purchase a proper touring bike, panniers, tent, stove, rain gear, and the other camping gear you'll need to have a comfortable and safe trip. Then you'll want to research online and plan a safe quick route that will take you through towns where you can obtain water (There's no place on your bike for 30 pints of water), food, bicycle maintenance and repair as needed. I would imagine that the spring or fall would be better times to travel through the desert south west than the summer. Your route will also have to include spots for legal and safe camping every night or otherwise obtain permission to camp in local parks or on private property. And when you get to California, then what are you going to do, you have to have a job and place to stay lined up beforehand, otherwise you'll just be a bum sleeping on the beach?
  • you funny. Your going to ride your bike across the US southwestern desert in August with 20 bottles of water? You'll run out of water the first day. If your lucky you will be able to do 200 miles a day. It's roughly 1200 miles - so 6-7 days and you'll be there.
  • if you are using it as a runaway device with no plans about what will happen in Cali, then no. If you are talking about is the trip possible, yes but you are not equipped properly, you didn't mention anything about being able to perform maintenance to the bike which WILL breakdown during a trip that long. also $30 is nothing. what happens when you run into a thunderstorm and want to get a room to get out of the rain.
  • 16? Good luck with that! That's such a bad idea its not even funny. Just finish out High School and the go do your own thing when your 18. You wont get far in life if you pull a stunt like this at your age. Keep your head up, it will get better eventually.
  • Dude you don't have the chance of a snowball in a blast furnace! You will probably dissapear and your bike will wind up in mexico!!
  • should be alright...you might get hit by a lorry. and id take a few more water bottles to be safe, and you might want a tent or something. if you want to get away from your parents...just go on a camping holiday or something...
  • I think you should stay with your parents. When I was 15 I ran away to DC and I was hurt very badly emotionally and physically. All I wanted to do was be with my family again. Please dont do it...you'll regret it. Im 21 now and Im still emotionally scarred after what happened to me.
  • When I was young I though he was the coolest Governor around, at that time he was dating Linda Ronstadt - he was even at a concert that I attended. But, my politics have changed and maybe I was so star struck that I really did not know his. We have an epidemic in our state, it is in the private post-secondary college system. Hundreds of millions of dollars from Pell grants, state funded grants and more are suppose to be helping young California's get an elite education, many of these students are young welfare mother's that are being put into financial debt for the rest of their lives, because their $8k-$40k education is going to Business for Profit Education System that can not be sued, except by the Attorney General, Jerry Brown will not sued on behalf of the students because it is hard to sue a lobbyist that is your friend. Jerry Brown save your money, retire and enjoy your old age - because dumb girls like me grew up to be wide eyed women!
  • Hey Plant Bobby, Funny story for you. As you may know, you requested to be a contact of mine a few weeks back. You are definitely a big fan of asking questions on here which is good, ha ha. I just came home from a weekend vacation and had 17 e-mails from Yahoo saying "Plant Bobby asked a question, do I know the answer?" Ha ha ha too funny. Hopefully I get a couple of best answer's for being your friend on here :)
  • Politicians are born to be manipulated and so are polls. What has Jerry Brown executed for senior electorate and the fraud of the state tax credit allocation committee decrease than William Pavao?
  • Could be. And it being California, there is a chance he might even be elected. He has to finish screwing up the state beyond all chance of ever recovering.
  • Only if he digs up his long lost love affair with Linda Ronstadt
  • Yeah. How's that for a chuckle?
  • OMG, i hope not.
  • maybe
  • Pocketbikes cannot be ridden legally by anybody on the highway or in public off road areas. The only place they can be ridden is on private property (with, of course, the owner's permission), and that applies to all ages as well. Here is a reasonably accurate discussion: http://www.pocketbikeplanet.com/showthre...And here is what the Oxnard police have to say (which would be the same anywhere): https://www.oxnardpd.org/bureaus/traffic...Unless you have a yard which is big enough to ride one, you pretty much waste your money buying a pocketbike in California.
  • Pocket bikes are not street legal, PERIOD. On private property with permission from the property owner, traffic laws don't apply.
  • There are no laws But don't get caught, if you know what im sayin
  • I bought a Toyota truck on Sunday and it overheated on the way home so we dropped it off at our Mechanic. On Monday he called me to tell me it had a blown head gasket and about $6000 in repair needed to be done to this truck. It had been pressure washed to hide the leaks etc and stop leak was put in the radiator to hide the leak there as well. The add said"1993 toyota clean title runs very good very clean has 180000 k". My mechanic also said it had 220,000 miles on it not 180,000. The odomiter didn't work either. Any help on this. I bought it for $4000.
  • I guess I need to add that it is not $6k for just the head gasket but for the entire car. It needs: the entire front end is shot as well as the radiator, water pump, axles, brakes, cv boots, head gasket, all belts and hoses, turn signal doesn't work, parking brake is shot, power steering is leaking, 4x4 doesn't ingage, it misfires when a/c is on, it has old A/c system and isn't very cold, stop leak added to radiator to cover up leak, it was power washed to hide oil leaks with over 220k miles.
  • I bought the car on Sunday at 5pm and my husband did look it over and we drove it but the owner said it needed a tune-up. It had just passed smog and it has a supper clean body and interior for it's age. We drove it 1/2 hour to mechanic and was called on Monday at 8am with all this news so "No I didn't do this to this truck. I was hoping for any HELPFUL advise not criticism since I just spent every dime a saved up $4000k to be exact to be totally ripped off in less then a day.
  • Well I was able to get the guy to take back the car at a $1000 loss since he would only return 3/4 of my money. I guess I am lucky but he was afraid I would have sued him and according to an attorney I talked to I would have one hands down since this was such a deceptive sale but collecting was a whole nother matter. Thanks for all the advise!!
  • Lemon Laws generally only apply to the sale of automobiles by car dealers. They typically do not apply to private party purchases. More specifically, in 1975, the United States Congress enacted the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, which has come to be known as the federal “Lemon Law.” This law provides that if a warrantor of a consumer product fails to comply with the obligations of its warranty, i.e. repair a defect in the product, that the consumer may bring a claim against the warrantor seeking damages and attorneys’ fees. Following the enactment of this federal law, states throughout the nation enacted their own “Lemon Laws” providing more particularized protection for consumers. Most of these state laws apply to motor vehicles and provide that if an automobile manufacturer fails to repair the vehicle after being afforded a reasonable number of attempts to do so that the consumer may recover a refund or replacement vehicle. However, every state is different and you should research your own state’s lemon law for your particularized situation.
  • You bought it as is and you own it as is. Pressure washing cant cover up a blown head gasket. No way a head gasket costs $6000, find a new mechanic. You can get a used motor installed for lots less. And even a brand new motor shouldn't cost $6k. No false advertising. The truck was fine or you wouldn't have bought it. So YOU tore it up.
  • I think a person has 3 days to reverse a sale of a vehicle, but that only may apply on cars bought from a dealer. A head gasket repair shouldn't be $6000 on that simple of an engine. A person can get a good engine and have installed for less than $6000. The person that sold you the truck committed fraud on the mileage , and should be taken to court on that. Talk to your local dmv and the look on line for information.
  • There is no lemon law for used vehicles in CA. You purchased the vehicle "as is". There is no such thing as a "3 day law" to back out of an auto deal. None! You failed to perform your due diligence prior to buying this truck and now you don't take responsibility for your actions. You have no recourse against the seller.
  • look up your state laws for buying as is next time have your Mechanic look at it before you buy it.not after
  • I am 16, I visited my family (grandma, two aunts, two uncles) in Oakland, California (keep in mind this city has a high crime rate) for one week (June 2nd - June 8th). Myself, my little brother, and my mom stayed in my grandma's (my mother's side of the family) house. This house was built in the early 1940's, so it is small and has two bedrooms. So my little brother stayed in his own room, and my mom and I stayed in the master bedroom, where my grandma usually sleeps. My grandma slept on her couch out in the living room while we were there. My grandma has had neighbors come and tap on her windows repeatedly during the night (3 a.m. ish) and has had her car broken into in her driveway, while she was in the car. She has an ADT security system, which she seems to activate every night. I wouldn't put it past her to forget to turn it on sometimes. My grandma was born in 1925. She grew up in the depression when she kept every penny she had and never put it in the bank (and still doesn't.). After WWII she has been EXTREMELY paranoid about someone bombing her house, and she still thinks we're "at war" with the Soviets. I mean, if you have organizations that haven't existed for over a decade coming after you, then...wow. Now, five whole days after we left, my grandma is accusing me of going through her dresser, "rifling" through her clothes, and stealing $50!! I did no such thing!! I talked to both of my parents, they are being stubborn and believe my grandma, because after all, "She's 85 and she deserves respect! YOU won't tell her SHE'S wrong!". I also called my grandma last night, and the first thing she says is, "Now what do YOU have to say for yourself!?!?" I tried to tell her that she is falsely accusing me of stealing her money, and she seriously needs to look at other possibilites other than her grand-daughter. She tells me, "YOU'RE LYING THROUGH YOUR TEETH", and absolutely *will not* listen to me, or anything. I am totally stuck being blamed for this. I gave total permission for my parents to search my room, my bathroom, my closet, piano bench, whatever they felt like, and believe me, they pawed through everything. And like I already knew before they started searching, they *didn't find anything*! Now I feel completely invaded, as nothing I have is even private anymore. They still continue to believe I stole it. I am totally at a loss for words, actions, everything. I have never felt so sick in my life. My aunts and uncles have been over at her house many times since I left as well. Part of me says "Screw you guys, believe what you want. I know that God knows I am innocent and I didn't steal it", and another part of me says, "I am not going to be the victim here! I really need to straighten this out". Of course, since my grandma is not religious at all, this has no meaning whatsoever to her, but last year I joined the LDS Church, and am strongly committed to the promise I made to follow God's commandments. I know stealing is downright wrong, hurtful, and nothing but destructive. I didn't not steal her money, and I never even thought about it. If you ask me, she is and will continue to be a very spiritually lost person, and her only way of coping with a loss, great or small, is to play the blame game. She gives higher priority to problems of tangible items than emotional ones, and she makes problems to be solved WAY more important than people to be loved. I can honestly say that I have little to no love for her anymore. She acted like she hated me the whole time I was visiting, though I haven't done anything to her. Please, if there is anything anyone can suggest for me to do, please let me know. I have tried my hardest to explain my situation to them, and they won't listen at all :( Thank you so much...
  • Has she been checked for Alzheimer's or Dementia? This type of behavior is a sign of Alzheimer's they start acting as if everyone is stealing from them and become violent and such. You should mention that to your parents, it sucks when people don't believe you though. I say just sit down and meditate or pray that the truth will come out. Don't stress too much about it, as long as you know you did not do it.
  • your best bet is to go to small private businesses... Small non franchised diners, dry cleaning places, hair sallons, or small gift stores are pretty good choices.. if you want a bigger company i think BK, McDs, wendys, subway are all 16
  • My husband Works for a little company that is not very stable right now. In the past when he has asked for personal time off they ask why and when he says for medical reasons they ask for more details. From what I know an employer cannot ask what the reason for the day off is. Am I correct? +++ also can an employer cash out a current employee for accrued vacation?
  • All your husband needs to do is tell them that it is a medical condition, and that it is private. If they attempt to discipline him in any way, just tell them that you will be contacting an attorney, and 95% of the time they will stop in their tracks. If it happens to be one of those 5% times, this is what some attorneys live for, and would see nothing but money signs.
  • Of course they can ask. Whether or not he tells them it's up to him. It also might be for the other workers' health. If he has the flu, he won't be expected to be at work the next day. The business should know that. However, if it's something he doesn't want others to know, like a personal condition, he should have the right not to say.
  • Psychologists in private practice who can average 70K+/- per year with a build up work experience and private practice. Working for non-profits is usually less. This figure also depends how much you will charge for each session 40, 60, 80, or more per hour, perhaps seeing an average of 7-8 patients per day, minus office rent, utilities, insurance, etc. to take into account. Some therapists have sliding scales, so actual salaries will vary. Psychologist that cater to the upper middle class/wealth I notice command a very high hourly rate. The big money lies in authoring those very expensive college books, which can be a lucrative deal. This is something you'll find out about real soon!
  • I'm looking to get part of my inheritance to move to the east coast but there are 2 things stoppping me: Spend thrift clause so I can't go through any companies to get an advance, and another section that states that I can only get an advance for school related expenses which I'm not going to school anyways. So does anyone know how to get around that or of any private investors that are in California, prefereably the San Diego area?
  • Sounds as if your inheritance is in a Trust. If I am correct you have no recourse. That Trust was set up specifically to keep you from wasting the money. Check with the Trustee and I am sure they will explain it better.
  • companies that do this are in the structured settlements business. i don't know much about them, but i always see a commercial for a company called JG Wentworth on tv, where they offer to buy all kinds of things, including inheritances or legal settlements.
  • I am currently attending East Los Angeles College and am about ready to transfer to a university. I don't have best academic record but am wanting to transfer out of state in New York. I would like to know what are the name of the schools equivalent of a "Cal State" in New York that are more flexible with students past academic history. Just throwing it out there to see if there are schools that will accept me.. I was looking into LIU and am assuming that is one of the "equivalents" Any one from New York or know about New York schools.. Please help!
  • LIU is an expensive private university. Its Brooklyn campus admits fewer than half of the transfer applicants. You might look at various four-year campuses of the City University of New York. They have relatively low out of state tuition fees. I do not have information on their transfer admission acceptance rate. If getting a good education for a low cost is important to you, apply to Cal State Dominguez Hills. It admits over five out of seven transfer applicants. Take advantage of instate tuition and move to New York after college. The money you will save on tuition fees will be enough to get you started in expensive New York.
  • Schools in New York City, unless you're attending a community college (which I doubt you'd want to do), academic records tend to be pretty important. NYU and Columbia might not be the best choices because they're pretty adamant about that. I would look into any of the SUNY schools (State University of New York). Some of them are actually very good, and others aren't. If you look outside of New York City, you might find more accepting schools for people like you, and they are still good schools. Here's a complete list of SUNY schools: http://www.suny.edu/student/campuses_com...I am not familiar with all of the schools on that list, but I know a little about some of them. Binghamton is a well-known school, and one of the more "posh" SUNY schools. My sister went there for a semester. While they have excellent academics, apparently the students aren't all that nice as people (a bit more uptight, I'd say). But then again, that was my sister's experience, and she's a bit of a free spirit. It's tougher to get into, but not as tough as, say, Columbia. University at Buffalo and Buffalo State University gets good marks as instate colleges. Not the best, but definitely not a mediocre school. Cornell has some schools in the SUNY system that I've heard good things about. Hudson Valley is also a decent in-state school with a nice campus. Stony Brook is "good," though not "excellent." The kids who go there are smart, but didn't necessarily do that great in academics. Ithaca College is not on the SUNY list, but it's also a good school to look into. Really good academics, and a beautiful campus. Of course, if you go you have to keep in mind that it's located in one of the most liberal towns in the universe, and is a haven of old hippies and weed. I'm cool with that sort of thing, but some people aren't. Good luck! :) NY has many good colleges so whatever you choose will still give you a good education.
  • When you say New York, I'm assuming you mean NYC, and not NY State, yes? There are some colleges in NYC that someone with okay but not great grades from a cc might be able to get into, and you've already found one of them - Long Island University. Because you didn't give me your actual GPA, I can't give you your real chances on any of these, but LIU is a good choice. Others that might work out for you include: John Jay College of Criminal Justice, College of Mount Saint Vincent, Marymount Manhattan, College of Staten Island, Adelphi (Manhattan Center), Bank Street College of Education, Medgar Evers College, Laboratory Institute of Merchandising, Touro College, and Vaughn College of Aeronautics.
  • Why go to a private expensive junior college for nursing @ $25,000 when you can go to a state junior college for less than $4,000?
  • the suitable thank you to get a solid credit is to be in charge approximately money. all human beings has cases while situations previous their administration make it impossible to pay their charges on time. Being in charge potential contacting your lenders, allowing them to know, making preparations and then retaining that dedication. you will possibly think of that paying off your charges early might help your credit extra, yet curiously that may no longer the case. I found out that via adventure--it did no longer harm my credit, it in simple terms did no longer help it. in case you are able to finance a purchase order, say some thing around $one million,000 and then pay it off month-to-month, completely on time, that's the form of factor which will construct your credit. Make preparations to have the invoice immediately paid out of your economic employer account, and bypass away a solid margin between payday and the day the fee is to be made. this might aid you time to make preparations, end the fee, or borrow a splash some thing from relatives or acquaintances in the form that your paycheck is previous due, you lose your job or some thing unpredicted occurs. the final factor you opt for--and subsequently what you need to stay away from in any respect expenses--is overdrafts considering which you probably did no longer end an automated fee you need to no longer make. In some states, a pair of those will land you in detention center! So, a ordinary the place you do no longer bounce exams, pay your charges often (which comprise lease, utilities, docs, etc., because of the fact all of them report to the credit bureau!), and achieve this over a era of a pair of years is solid information which you're able to be depended on with a larger own loan, say for a motor vehicle or a house.
  • work full-time and go to school part-time or if you can take it do both full-time
  • The state of California and the local governments are short of money. Schools are closing. They are not hiring at all. California has over 12% unemployment in the urban areas. It might be easier to get a job in a Catholic school or private school.
  • In California, USA, all the grocery stores sell it. Some states monopolize it to make money. It is a holdover from Prohibition. The thought was that if the prices were kept high and hours inconvenient, people would be less likely to get drunk.
  • It can be sold in grocery stores in some states. Heck where i live you can buy it at Wal-Mart. Its not monopolizing, its just that a place has to meet certain requirements before it can sell liquor. Private businesses sell liquor all the time, they just have to apply for a liquor license. you seem to be basing this question on a faulty assumption.
  • It depends on what state you live in. There are certain states that allow beer, wine and hard liquor to be sold in grocery stores and non-state run "private" businesses. In state where the beer, wine and hard liquor are sold in state run stores, restaurants can get licenses to sell beer, wine and hard liquor as "take out" items so long as they pay for the license and the taxes.
  • Because you live in a dry state. Here we can but liquor at the corner store, the gas station, the grocery store, the liquor store, the wine specialty shop and even at the bar! And don't forget all of the church picnics and bingos!
  • It's not illegal to bet online with an off-shore gaming site! There is NO federal law that makes the act of wagering online illegal. The only federal law that addresses gambling is the wire act from the 1960's which makes it illegal to place wagers via the telephone. The US government passed a port security law and tacked on provisions (UIGEA) that make it illegal for BANKS, not players, to fund or accept payment from gaming sources. The only problem (for the govt) is that there are dozens of third party methods available for funding and no way to trace ACH credits. In other words, the new provisions are only for show and the end result is a waste of ink. I still use my VISA check card and e-check on my favorite sites. Online gaming will be impossible to completely eliminate from the US. The best they can do is make it inconvenient. Eventually I see the industry being regulated and taxed...heavily! The only states with laws directed towards online wagering are Michigan, Illinois, Louisiana, Oregon, Wisconsin, Washington, Indiana, Nevada, New York, New Jersey and South Dakota. Although these states do have specific laws pertaining to online gaming, there has not been any charges laid. Some sites have decided, on their own, to no longer accept American players. These are the publicly traded companies and most have returned to private owners. There are still many highly reputable sites that welcome and cater to American clients. I have wagered online for years and make good money betting on sports and playing poker.

  • Ok Lets cut through all the BS. Depending what state you live in the laws vary. Im in California and here the receipt you have is as good as a bill of sale as long as the title is in the sellers name and there is no money still owed on the car by her. Take the paper work you have to the DMV and they will tell you if you need anything else from the seller. If not then they will register the car in your name and issue you a new title. Just tell them it has a lost title.
  • You should have gotten the title IMMEDIATELY after you handed her the money. You, as the buyer, are responsible to get the title to the DMV. She has played you. 1. Keep the car in an enclosed garage at night, and get one of those autolocks to place on the brake pedal. See link: http://www.autolock.com/Unbreakable_Auto...2. Make every attempt to get the Title from her. She should simply sign over the title. You can tell her you'll give her a written note signing off any liability. 3. Take the title YOURSELF into the local DMV and get the title changed over to your name. If you don't do this, she, or her husband will find a way to get the car back. I bet they even have a spare key to the car, so it wouldn't hurt to get the car re-keyed. They will probably simply wait until you've parked somewhere and reclaim the car. Without the title, you do not own the car, and she can simply say the receipt is forged.
  • What are these people talking about the attorney general only deals with businesses or individuals who are running fradulent enterprises. And as far as getting a lien against other property that is hard to do since covenant ownership of the property has been made. You do have a right to sue in small claims court. You can also get a bonded title which is a somewhat difficult process for a citizen. State laws vary but you may be able to assess her a storage fee. Your DMV is a place to start, they may direct you to your local police department who may or more likely may not take a police report but seeing as her family has problems with the law they might intervene and force her to do the right thing. I hope for your sake there is not a lien on the title, because then you have a whole new ordeal on your hands. Oh yeah if she goes to DMV and gets a duplicate title issued, your title signed or otherwise is null and void as it is superceded by the new (duplicate) title, she can report the car stolen and guess who is up the creek. For me, its easy, I call the police, notify of pickup, load it on my rollback, drive to my yard, drop the car off, and in 15 days DMV hands me over the title. Impounding is FUN.
  • Write A warning letter that she has three days to deliver the title or she will be reported to the attorney general for selling a vehicle without a title, and be taken to civil court. Mention any other property she owns and let her know leins will be attched to the property.
  • Give her a call and point out that she still is lible (meaning she can be arrested or sued) if the vehicle is still in her name. Though I have a question for you, does the vehicle have a loan on it? If it does, than you have bigger problems. I would suggest a lawyer if this is the case.
  • Take the reciept and registraion to the DMv and have you own title made. You have a signed bill of sale so you should be good.
  • Unfortunately, this is a civil issue and the police will not be able to do anything for you. Your best bet is to talk to her one last time, then contact a lawyer if things still do not progress. Best of luck!
  • you,ll have to get a hold of them by phone or in person and get them to do this, their signatures have to be on the title for it to be legal,mean time don't let nothing happen to the car,until they get the paper work straitened out on it,good luck with it.

  • I am getting married next October in OC and want to do so on or by the beach. I dont really what to do it right on the sand but more like on a cliff or at a venue on the beach. The only place I found so far is Laguna village witch I like I lot but I want to know of other places. I live in NYC and am going to look at places in November. So if you have websites or pics please post.
  • If you have a large budget, I definitely recommend having your wedding at the Montage. It is absolutely stunning, 5-star class, exclusive, and will heighten the memorability of your event. There is a private strip of beach exclusively for the Montage, and as the resort sits on a bluff, the view from the wedding veranda is breath-taking. I suggest that you at least look up the wedding packages offered by the Montage if you have the money to spend, it's quite expensive but well worth it. I have included the official website for the Montage as well as personal reviews written from real customers on the Yelp.com website. Congratulations!
  • You will want a very beautiful beach, most likely some without much buildings around so here are my suggestions. South Orange County, San Clemente, Dana Point, Monarch Beach, and Laguna Beach would be beautiful. If you have a large budget, there are many resorts down that way, but if you don't, you can try on the beach, just check with the State Parks who run most of the beaches. Crystal Cove is really beautiful and secluded area, that is quite cute. Also if you are looking to venture out of OC, Palos Verdes is another great place, which is only 10-15 min outside of Orange County in neighboring LA county.
  • Trying to locate a deadbeat dad to serve him with child support enforcement papers. He lives in or near San Luis Obispo California. I already tried internet searches including intellius and people finders. My state has already tried the federal new hire database. He owns no property in his name and lives with his wife's family, all utilities in thier names. He makes a decent amount of money as a drafter, but hasn't paid any child support in close to a year.
  • You might want to hire a private investigator.
  • Depends on the school system, your years of experience, your degree, and your certification. In a regular public school, you can probably make the same for preschool through grade 2. But private preschools may pay less and require less education. Salary charts should be on line at the state or school district websites or ask at a college or university that offers teaching programs. Generally teachers get paid in the middle--not as much as some, but more than many. Plan to get as high a degree as you can. A masters at least. And think about a specialty like special education where there are more jobs. Also consider that if you are bi-lingual you will have a big advantage,
  • Private universities like USC often have very generous financial aid. Most of the Ivy League schools schools have free tuition for students from families with income below a specific threshold (say $56,000) and reduced tuition to others. With need-based scholarships, tuition can often cost less than paying full price at a state university. So don't panic at the "sticker price"; apply to a number of public and private universities and every scholarship you qualify for, and compare the costs after your offers come in. http://financialaid.usc.edu/undergraduat...
  • It sounds like you should look into public colleges that cost less so your mom won't be put in such a bind and you won't end up in so much debt. You can get a good public education for about a third of what it would cost to attend USC.
  • Private schools cost a fortune. Even if you can get loans, you will spend the rest of your life paying them off. Go to a community college for the first two years, then transfer to a state school.
  • Get a scholarship. The thing is, USC (and similar) grants degrees that are favoured by employers, so it's a better career move if you can go there. But, one thing is for sure -- poorer people, without scholarships don't go there!
  • My poor friend is having money issues, and PSE&G won't take a payment plan with her. She owes about $1400, and wants to make bi-weekly payments of $400 until it's paid off, but they won't allow that. They say if she doesn't come up with $1000, they're shutting her power off tomorrow. My mother and others have told me it's illegal for them to do this, though, because she has children under the age of 13 in the household. I don't know what to tell her. The laws I've looked up say that you can ask for a payment plan method, and the utility company can't ask you for more than 25 percent of the outrageous bill as a down payment. That would be about $375 as a down payment; but PSE&G won't take it. I don't know if what they're doing is legal, and I really need some help. Thanks to whomever answers!
  • I live in California, so I'm not entirely certain of New Jersey laws. But I'm 99.9% certain that utilities are private companies, and as such can refuse service to those customers who can't pay for said service. The NJ Board of Public Utilities does clarify that a deposit must be reasonable...but a deposit is relative to starting new service, not maintaining the agreement that's already in place. The NJBPU also clarifies that you can request payment plans...but they also clarify that you only have the right to request this once a year, and don't specify anything on their website that termination is based on the age of the people living in the residence. If this is a continued problem, the power company may be well within their rights. The link, below, lists some of the assistance programs that are available in NJ.
  • Generally when you have someone in your home on a "breathing machine" the electric company is notified and will not shut off the electricity. I would imagine if you son is ill enough to require ventilation from a machine that you would have some kind of battery or generator in case of power failure. If not, it never hurts to call the electric company and explain your situation, ASAP.
  • there is a 'life sustaining ' form that can be filled out and with approval service will remain on. Generally any breathing problems, CPAP's, etc that require electricity
  • Pseg Payment Plan
  • Nope, I don't think there is any such law. She should go to a bank and get a loan and pay the $1000.
  • I'd like to see a beach, maybe some shells, don't like crowds, just want to unpack and relax, maybe sit at a tiki bar with my husband. I can't spend more than 250 a night for a room, preferably even less so I have more money for food and shopping. Any hotels in the U.S. that you know of like this. Big pool would be nice too but very few people in it if possible. I wouldn't be going until June 2010. Thanks.
  • Maybe Half Moon Bay, California Small town with many beaches that are empty most of the year, you can find many nice hotels or bed and breakfasts there or in the area, Take a Beautiful drive down Highway 1 to Santa Cruz, then to Capitola, maybe see some of Monterrey, and don't forget 17 mile drive, you could do that in one day, then San Francisco the next day. and If your in Capitola be sure to have dinner at The Shadowbrook,
  • Private and secluded = Expensive. You pay a premium for the privacy! Are you willing to fly or are you only able to drive somewhere? Are you in the West, South, or East? If you want to be where people aren't, then skip a Tiki Bar and head to somewhere like Aspen for the summer
  • June is getting into prime travel month...if it is early june it may not be so bad. I know Virginia Beach isnt so bad at that time...but the ocean water wouldnt be warm yet...and i dont know if you can find a tiki bar.
  • The question is way too broad to answer. Without knowing where your coming from or what your looking for other than a beach, its an impossible answer. This country is way too large to zero in on any one area. don.shaw@yahoo.com
  • Try these islands in the Philippines, Palawan Bohol Boracay Cebu Camarines Davao and many more islands to choose from with 7,107 island!
  • I am currently a high school senior and I am trying to decide between these two universities that I recently got accepted into. I know AU and UCSB are both academically comparable but I'm not sure which of their departments are the strongest. My interests are English, law, political science, government, and psychology. The careers that I currently have in my mind for myself are either lawyer or professor or working for the US government, but this might change in college.
  • If you are a California resident and money is an issue, go to UCSB. UCSB ranks 42nd in the US News list and American ranks 84th. As American is a private university, it will probably be easier to get into the classes you want and you will have fewer classes with more than 50 students. You will also have more opportunities to find internships with the government and organizations which work with the government.
  • I would like to buy at auction a car for my personal use. I just took the pre-licensing class and asked the instructor if this was ok for me to do. He said that I had to sell the car I buy at auction to someone who had a retail license and then buy the car back from them. The problem is that I am just starting out and I don't know anyone in the business yet. Is there a safe work around for this - one that wouldn't jeopardize my license? I keep my cars on the average of 10 years, so this is not something I plan on doing very often. Thanks!
  • you want your cake and eat it to. Sorry it does not work the way you want. You can buy a car from a private party or buy retail off of a dealer lot but you cant buy cheap and keep get it? Looking for ways to bend the rules for the sake of money seems to be a problem for some reason. Personally I think auction cars SUCK . I don't buy anything I cannot test drive first. At auctions dealers buy multiple cars and hope some of them will sell. The clunkers go back through the auction. HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU GET?
  • I bought a car from a private party. He had the old pink slip but it was already filled out to the buyer(not him but the previous). We signed saying a paper saying im buying the car and he would give me the pink slip by XX/07. He never gave it to me. I then got him to sign another paper saying that same thing or he would give me a refund. Also on the paper i wrote the only problems were a, b, and c. I wrote that i would get storage fees of 80.day. until i was repaid.. if he didn't give me the current title. HE then texted me saying he would pay me back my 3100. If i take this to small claims court will i win?? And the second contract only I have a copy of. AND HE ALREADY TOLD ME THROUGH MANY TEXTS THAT HE WILL PAY ME BACK.... this is in california
  • "Seller lied about condition " So? Didn't you inspect it? Didn't you have a mechanic inspect it? Condition of the vehicle in an as-is sale, is the responsibility of the BUYER. Not the seller. When you bought it, you legally released him from ANY and ALL problems with the car. It could have exploded before you got 10 feet down the road. Not his problem. By law. "If i take this to small claims court will i win?" Probably not. It's an as-is sale. You should have verified the car and title at the time of purchase. You failed to do both. But go ahead, waste your money on court fees and an attorney. Good luck with that. " I wrote that i would get storage fees of 80.day. until i was repaid" Which is called extortion. You are not incuring $80 fees to have the car, so you CANNOT charge him for something that is not costing you. He can charge you and sue you, if you attempt to collect on that.
  • Tell this clown to go pound sand! He can sue you, but has no chance of winning. He failed to do his due diligence in checking out the vehicle before he bought it. When you buy a used car, you are taking a chance, that's just how it goes. Private car sales are always "as is" unless you gave him a written warranty of some sort. Statements made in the process of selling a vehicle "clean one owner", "runs like new", etc. is called "puffing" in legal jargon. It is common knowledge that any statement made by a seller in order to sell a product (apart from obvious misrepresentation) isn't defensible in court. This guy is just a jerk, things didn't go his way and he wants a dog to kick. Don't let it get to you.
  • If you have everything documented well, you may win in court. (The texts are worthless though) HOWEVER, winning in court does not mean you will be paid. You could very easily spend $75-125 to sue him and when you leave court, you will have a piece of paper that says the guy owes you $3175 or whatever. You wont win the $80 a day. That doesn't mean he is going to pay you. Its up to you to collect. How will you do that ? I got sued over $60 about 20 years ago. I lost. The other guy won a judgment for $85. I never paid him a dime. And he couldn't collect it. So he wasted $25 suing me. The cost of small claims court has went up and you are taking about a larger amount so you are probably looking at $75-150 in filing costs. The ONLY reason you might win is because he cant get you a clear title. Not because he lied about the condition. That's your problem. Your problem is not knowing this in advance. You are pretty much at this guys mercy. If you can get even $2500 back in the next 3-6 months, consider yourself LUCKY ! Like I said, you can sue and you might win. But never see a dime. So why sue ? Have you considered hiring a bouncer type guy to go with you to the guys house ? Or even a cop ? Cops will do side jobs. The cop cant arrest him but the guy might not know that. Sometimes fear will work. Of course, if they guy doesn't have the money, how is he going to pay you ? You can often hire a cop for a small job like that for $35-50. He will go with you to the guys door and say "Im here to collect on this car". Your best case scenario is it scares the guy and he says "lets go to the bank". But if he doesn't have it, you just wasted $50 on the cop because the cop cant do anything to him. A bouncer type guy might be able to scare the guy into paying you over time via the implied threat of "kicking his butt". But of course he cant legally kick his butt.
  • What you do is you make a donation and hope for the best. Since you can't legally buy your way in, they have every right to take the money and then not accept you. It cost a California politician 30 million dollars to buy her idiot sons into Princeton a few years ago. Do you have that much lying around?
  • You may be able to get in with a huge donation, but you can't pay to stay there. The competition at those schools is fierce. It would help to spell "Stanford" right.
  • My marriage is not over, but I'm not sure what will happen in a couple of years. I'm trying to make it work, but she isn't doing a whole lot to grow past her own issues. I am receiving a sizable inheritance, and am keeping it in a separate account. The law in my state allows a spouse to keep all inheritance in a divorce, and even allows a spouse to reclaim contributions to community property (like remodeling your kitchen) made from such inheritance. Does anyone know the proper proof that is needed to prove inheritance money was spent on CP so that it can be successfully extracted in a divorce down the road? For example, say you have $100K in your home that is CP. I add $50K in improvements from my inheritance. Two years later, you divorce, and the house has $200K in equity. I have the right to first subtract my $50K contribution, and the remaining $150K in equity is then split evenly. What is the documentation I need to maintain to prove my contributions? Thanks in advance.
  • No, community property is not community property period. California, where I live, is a CP state, but the law specifically states inheritance is NOT CP unless co-mingled into CP. Even then, the law says that you can make a claim on CP assets in a divorce, but you have to prove that the contributions to CP came from a private account, which contained either money earned before the marriage that was never in a joint account, or money that came from inheritance.
  • I strongly suggest talking to a lawyer. A one time consult shouldn't be too expensive and you can have your questions answered. Other than that, I would say if you pay for anything major, pay it from your separate account, and keep receipts and bank records to document it.
  • This depends a lot on where you live...community property states assume that half of all assets acquired during a marriage go to each party. Community property is community property...period. See a lawyer, and an accountant.
  • You need a lawyers advice before doing anything.

  • There are basically NINE ways that you can get a visa to live and work in the US: (1) Marriage (or engagement in anticipation of marriage) to a US citizen. (2) You have skills that are in short supply in the US e.g. scientific or medical training. A degree is normally a must. Or you have superior specialist skills with at least 12 years experience. (H visas) (3) You have an Employer who is willing to transfer you - but even the employer has to make a good case for you - so you have to be a manager unless you fall under category (2) above.(L visas) (4) You may get a Green card in the diversity lottery (UK citizens, except N.Ireland, are not generally eligible unless you, your spouse or parents were born abroad or held a different citizenship. (5)You own or buy business (does not get you permanent resident status i.e. no green card)You must be a national of a qualifying Treaty countries. The business must have a minimum value of around $150k (more the better) bearing in mind you will need somewhere to live and with any startup business you will need at least 2 years living money as back up. So a figure of $350k would be a nearer minimum (E-2 visas) (6)You are an "investor" i.e. you have at least US $1m in assets to bring with you. half of that in a few areas. And your background will be investigated to the hilt. (EB-5 visas) (7)You have a close relative (mother, father, brother, sister and no further) who is an US citizen who would sponsor you, approx time this take 2-12 years? (8.The R1 visa is available to foreign members of religious denominations, having bona fide non-profit religious organizations in the U.S., for entering the U.S. to carry on the activities of a minister or religious worker as a profession, occupation or vocation (9)THE UNUSUAL You are in a position to claim refugee status/political asylum. or You get a member of Congress to sponsor a private bill with legislation that applies just to you. The S visa issued to persons who assist US law enforcement to investigate and prosecute crimes and terrorist activities such as money laundering and organized crime Recruitment agent will not take you seriously if you are not already in the US. Writing for jobs is really a waste of time; likewise US employers have no idea what foreign qualification are or mean (except Degrees) it may pay you to get your qualification translated into a US equivalent, there are Companies that do this (www.wes.org) .. But if you are getting a visa under (2) above then you need a job offer before you can get the visa. Your Employer will be your sponsor this will cost them upward of $5k. So you can see you have to be offering something really special to get considered They may also have to prove to the Dept of labor that there is no American who can do the job if the position is to be permanent ©
  • Weren't you an actor just the other day? How did you suddenly aquire a BS degree in just a few days?

  • My National Security Adviser tells me Ben Bernyankme is the right guy in the right job at the right time, and that he thinks The Fed might just be able to skate along the edge of the cliff for perhaps years and that they might just be able to pull this thing off, so that in a few years from now we stabilize at the desired 3% inflation rate which is necessary for a fiat currency. He doesn't think the bubble has achieved terminal death-spiral velocity. What say you?
  • @LTM The recovery is a sham, there is no recovery. What USA has to do is figure out what do do with 13 million permanently unemployed people. Hey, wait a minute.... isn't that about the same number of illegal aliens in USA? There must be about 12 million in California alone. maybe that has something to do with it going broke, supplying all the freebies like public education and welfare etc to people who live mostly off the tax grid. All signs/trends point to a double-dip recession. Assuming of course that USA doesn't do what Countries always do when their population becomes unhappy with internal events: Find an external enemy so as to redirect the popular attention away from unhappiness with Our Leaders. But Democrats don't escalate wars, do they? Hmmm, let's review: WW2 = FDR. Viet Nam = Johnson. So no, that could never happen now that we have a Commie In chief who is a fence-mender. Oh, wait. Commies don't believe in fences. Or Private Property Rights. Or borders.
  • As long as there is money in our wallets, this joke will continue... Sadly, the effects of this scheme on our voices is similar to the effects that laughing gas has on us when we visit our dentist--until we get our bill from our dentist... We are becoming voiceless and penniless simultaneously... And there appears to be no other destiny for us until this generation of politicians have been overthrown with our votes or a revolt.

  • Berkeley is a big stretch, especially with budget cuts. You are a lock for UC Irvine, Davis, and a reach for UCSD. I would say that UCLA is probably a big stretch to. Private colleges is where your money will come into play. Applying with no financial aid to a college like USC will boost your chances. Affirmative action wont help you with the UC's.
  • at the start you're searching for the type that's the y values no longer the x values. you are able to no longer sq. root a adverse type or 0 so the area (the x-values) is (0, infinity) put in a form close to to 0 say .001 then you've the sqrt(a million.001)/sqrt(.001) = a million.0005/.0316 that's approximately 31.6 b/c you're dividing a form close to to a million by a smaller type this might bring about a great answer. attempt something even smaller like .0000005 and you will see the end result's approximately 1414 Now plug in a great type working example ninety 9 then you've the sqrt(one hundred)/sqrt(ninety 9)that's a million.0.5 because of the fact the numbers are close to to a minimum of one yet another they only approximately have a ratio of a million yet never would be a million precisely because of the fact the numerator will continuously be slightly larger than the denominator. which ability the type is (a million, infinity) i'm hoping this facilitates.
  • for the UC's your chances at UC Riverside, Merced, Santa Cruz, Irvine, and Santa Barbara are very high. UC Davis and UCSD are fair. UCLA and Berkeley however will be reach schools for you.
  • Last year I went to LA on a trip and I really loved it. I have been thinking about moving to the US for awhile but a few people have said that unless I have a "high end job" or unless its for marriage, its not going to happen. I currently work at a mcdonalds so obviously that doesn't meet the job requirements. Is there any way I can move to the US without a job, legally? How do I do it? Obviously I would get one when I get there and I would be staying with a friend for a few weeks.
  • There are basically NINE ways that you can get a visa to live and work in the US: (1) Marriage (or engagement in anticipation of marriage) to a US citizen. (2) You have skills that are in short supply in the US e.g. scientific or medical training. A degree is normally a must. Or you have superior specialist skills with at least 12 years experience. (H visas) (3) You have an Employer who is willing to transfer you - but even the employer has to make a good case for you - so you have to be a manager unless you fall under category (2) above.(L visas) (4) You may get a Green card in the diversity lottery (UK citizens, except N.Ireland, are not generally eligible unless you, your spouse or parents were born abroad or held a different citizenship. (5)You own or buy business (does not get you permanent resident status i.e. no green card)You must be a national of a qualifying Treaty countries. The business must have a minimum value of around $150k (more the better) bearing in mind you will need somewhere to live and with any startup business you will need at least 2 years living money as back up. So a figure of $350k would be a nearer minimum (E-2 visas) (6)You are an "investor" i.e. you have at least US $1m in assets to bring with you. half of that in a few areas. And your background will be investigated to the hilt. (EB-5 visas) (7)You have a close relative (mother, father, brother, sister and no further) who is an US citizen who would sponsor you, approx time this take 2-12 years? (8.The R1 visa is available to foreign members of religious denominations, having bona fide non-profit religious organizations in the U.S., for entering the U.S. to carry on the activities of a minister or religious worker as a profession, occupation or vocation (9)THE UNUSUAL You are in a position to claim refugee status/political asylum. or You get a member of Congress to sponsor a private bill with legislation that applies just to you. The S visa issued to persons who assist US law enforcement to investigate and prosecute crimes and terrorist activities such as money laundering and organized crime Recruitment agent will not take you seriously if you are not already in the US. Writing for jobs is really a waste of time; likewise US employers have no idea what foreign qualification are or mean (except Degrees) it may pay you to get your qualification translated into a US equivalent, there are Companies that do this (www.wes.org) .. But if you are getting a visa under (2) above then you need a job offer before you can get the visa. Your Employer will be your sponsor this will cost them upward of $5k. So you can see you have to be offering something really special to get considered They may also have to prove to the Dept of labor that there is no American who can do the job if the position is to be permanent ©
  • Moving To California From Canada
  • Canadian citizens do not require visas to enter the United States when coming directly from Canada for touristic purposes. However, all Canadians entering the United States require passports. For all other purposes, visas must be obtained before traveling to the United States. As a general rule, Canadians are granted up to a 6-month stay in the US at the time of entry. Requests for extension or adjustment of stay should be made in advance of expiry of the visa to the US Citizenship and Immigration Service. There is an application procedure you need to go through to get
  • For the best answers, search on this site https://shorturl.im/awVtCHi , we ourselves are considering the same. However from my initial research it is clear that my current qualifications/degree will not be recognized by Canadian firms so either I have to compromise by taking low-level skill jobs ( which Im not keen on) or re-qualify myself as per the State requirement (which can be a lengthy n costly process ) . Also good jobs come your way only if you have "Canadian experience" which one cant get easily without qualifications !. Its a Catch 22 out there. I would encourage you to find out the same about your profession before you make the big leap. Either which way all the best.
  • No, working at McDonald's doesn't qualify you for a work visa. Unless you have an immediate family member who is a US citizen and can petition for you, you really have no chance of moving here.

  • Hi, thanks for taking a moment of your time to answer my question. I want to study Culinary Arts and get a bachelor s degree but I don t know if this two schools are good option? Talking financially too, I really have no money and I'm kind of new about all this, I'm new at the US, I moved my senior year of high school. Any advice or experiences with this two institutes? and if you know any other Culinary school I really appreciate if you can share that. Thank you :D
  • Please be aware that even though the "art institute" of san diego is regionally accredited and is ACF-accredited (for culinary arts), they're a for-profit school. Therefore, their course credits usually do *not* transfer to other schools, even if the for-profit school is regionally accredited. If you're referring to the CIA of California, please know that it seems as though a bachelor's degree in not offered from that campus. It's categorized as a private, not-for-profit school, but I'm not sure if any course credits will transfer to other schools as opposed to a community college (or state-public university or other reputable university). It does seem to be a regionally accredited school, though, which is the preferred accreditation for a school. This website is supposed to have ACF-accredited programs, including at some community colleges: http://www.acfchefs.org/ACFSource/Educat... and can scroll down the page to search.
  • Okay, so I keep trying to plan this move by myself, but it's very confusing and would like someones advice as to how I should go about planning this. So I'm currently 15, and for a while I've been dreaming about moving out of Washington, and down to Central/Southern California. I'm currently a sophomore in high school, but junior and senior year I'll be going to a community college for most of my courses- and trying to earn my AA before I graduate. I really wanted to get at least 4 years of college done so I could get a decent job, and I was hoping that I'd be able to transfer my credits to a university in California (my grades are okay, I'm at a 3.2 gpa). The places I were looking at were a dogtown in Santa Monica, or Marina Del Rey or Los Feliz in Los Angeles. I want to be near a place that has easy access to the ocean. I just did an apartment search, and it looked like apartments were relatively cheap there $400 - $700 for a studio apartment. How should I go about this so that I can actually accomplish my move?
  • Unfortunately, there are many many rental scams. Google: Los Angeles Rental Scams, and Rental Scams. You're very likely not going to find a legit rental situation for $400 that is livable and legal, $700 is almost impossible to find in an ok area. There are many roommate scams also, if a landlord doesn't do a credit and rental history, you're likely involved in an illegal rental, and will soon be booted, without your rent or deposit. An ok older apartment in an ok area near (near can mean over a mile away) the beach is going to start at $1000+, and that is stretching "ok" quite a bit. You're looking at a bachelor/single in a sketchy area. In Venice, an old, 600 sq ft house, on a tiny lot, a block from the beach, rents for $3800, one tenant only. Los Feliz is very expensive. There are some lower cost apartments outside of real Los Feliz, but they will still cost you over $800 for a single. If you look about 2 miles south, in the southern area of East Hollywood, near LACC, once in awhile you might find a bachelor or a single for $700, but you might not find the situation acceptable. You have to be careful looking around Los Feliz / Silverlake, as there are some very sketchy areas nearby. Marina del Rey is expensive, you aren't going to find anything legit there for $700. If you're going to CC for your junior and senior years of high school, instead of takin
