Frequently asked questions about bad credit texas

  • My suggestion would be to buy a $1000 car and get your credit in order. They will hose you on an interest rate with bad credit.
  • What jobs?Friends living in Texas say job prospects have gotten worse and so called minimum wage jobs don't cover cost of living even if they work 18 hours a day.
  • Funny how the Soros sheeple have been ordered to attack Perry because the weak anti-American left wingers can't defend their 57 state messiah!!! Nice job wolf but you are a hypocrite!!!!
  • Dunno... What did they say about Swarzy in CA?
  • Yes, there's plenty of Section 8 here. Lots off E. Riverside, Cameron Rd., Rundberg Lane area; also on N. Lamar north of 183 (sorry, there is no neighborhood name, it's just the city).
  • apartments n north austin
  • Lexy300, Congrats on the rug rat. They are fun untill they learn to talk. Seriously you don't say if you are working or got money. Well we know you haven't learned to handle money, so.

  • You WANT cable. You NEED to pay bills and fix credit
  • Most places that supply cable will take a deposit in place of good credit.
  • We recommend you apply to standard lenders, local and online, to obtain your personal loan for bad credit risks. Don't pay a fee to apply, or join a membership promising a list of lenders who will loan you money. You will only be throwing good money away!
  • They will most likely accept a cash deposit for them providing you with their cable services.
  • You have to offer a deposit
  • You *NEED* cable????
  • What state are you in. In some states items drop off your credit reports in less than 7 1/2 years. Ex: Texas is 4. Did you dispte the item just recently???
  • They didnt put on there in the first place so it can show up at any point. Check with the other two banks to make sure that they are not reporting it.
  • Well sometime companies do tease their old clients but you don't have to worry if your bad credit are cleared. Talk to your bank may they help you with it.
  • With bad credit, i doubt you could get anyone to finance you for over 48 months. Many will only go 24-36.
  • well there technically is not limit, but the most that car loans get is 72 months...
  • If it's paid off, all you have to do is either sell the car to your daughter or give it as a gift, either way you will have to pay taxes and a title transfer fee. Try this web site http://www.dmv.org/tx-texas/title-transf...
  • Life is not fair in any realm, not even justice, and who seems good to some may seem quite bad in their conduct to others, namely the judge and jury.
  • The best case scenario is that you win the lawsuit or the lawsuit is dismissed. The worst case scenario is that you lose the lawsuit. This is true for any lawsuit.
  • The family courts clerk of court should have a website -- check under your county, then see if the state of Texas does offer a dissolution, legal separation, etc. and see what the requirements are...
  • you ought to circulate to the courtroom homestead in Texas. Ask on the education table to have some one direct you to the workplace which will furnish you with that form. or you ought to objective to tug up the education on the internet website by typing interior the hunt area criminal separation contract of the state of Texas and push circulate.
  • One of the most common questions spouses ask when confronting a marriage crisis is this: How can I save my marriage if my partner doesn't want to help find a solution? How do I succeed I am trying to save my marriage on my own? Learn here https://tr.im/W6exvIt is a typical enough story: one partner leaves, the other stays. One remains 'in love', the other is uncertain. Whatever it is that has caused a couple to be apart, the one person who remains bears the prospect, fear, doubt, desire, hope of saving his or her marriage' alone.
  • I have an opportunity to move back to San Marcos for work but I just moved to Corpus Christi to start my own business and I now know it was a bad idea. My gf and I agreed to moving back but we are concerned with all the penalties and do not want our credit damaged. How can we get out of the lease as painlessly as possible?
  • Breaking a lease is expensive. You will need to speak to your landlord to find out what the penalties will be. Most landlords require 30-60 days written notice while you continue paying rent. You are then charged 2-3 months rent plus administrative fees in one lump sum as penalty for breaking the lease early. That's a lot of money to throw away. You should seriously consider whether it's worth it to move now.
  • I've done it. Make an appointment with your landlord. (In my case I had to move due to an emergency - not because it would be nice). The landlord made an agreement. I pay for her advertising to find a new tenant and I have to show my own apartment - taking time off from work to show the people. I also had to keep the apt immaculate and paid for shampooing the carpet. We found a new tenant. All I had to pay was the 2 weeks until they moved in and took over the lease. /
  • is this a private hire or company house? If an house then maximum probable will flow on credit document for as much as 7-Yrs? it is going to impact credit alongside with Public record showing an Eviction.
  • Nope, you'll be rejected because you aren't top 10%. Don't feel too bad though, looking back on my 4 years there, I wish I had been rejected. At least for me, Texas A&M would have been a much better choice, judging by my friends' experiences there.
  • id say you have a good chance 80 percent good luck btw you could always try that ACT instead if you want..but youll probly be ok
  • Im a freshman in high school, and i am currently doing ok in most of my classes ecept for pre-ap biology and spanish 2. I have to retake biology in summer school, but i have to retake spanish 2 instead of taking spanish 3 my sophmore year. Is this really bad? and will colleges like Texas Tech, A&M not accept me?I will probably end up taking spanish 3 as a dual credit class my junior year.
  • How bad are you doing in your classes? Typically for 4 year universities they want you pass classes with a C or higher. Since, you are a Freshmen and are currently taking Spanish 2, you will need one more full year of Spanish to be eligible for 4 year universities such as the ones you mention. Remember you have to take 2 full years of a language in H.S of the SAME language. So two full years of Spanish or what have you. Now, if you re-take it for a better grade, in your transcript it will have an "R" next to the first one saying you re-took it. College recruiters do not frown upon it because you were diligent and re-took the course for a better grade. Later on you can even ask your school's registrar to remove your first grade if possible from your transcript. Also, please see your school counselor and ask him or her to do an academic plan with you so you know what you need to take in order to be eligible for 4 year universities. Be active about it early as a Freshman you won't be lost as a Sophomore, Junior, and Senior. Good Luck with everything.
  • Absolutely no longer. In truth, many persons argue that specified language checks are designed to support ESL pupils who wrestle at the Reading and English sections of the SAT. If you may have a 790 on one scan and a 750 at the different, you are most likely set for any tuition you would wish to visit. However, a few faculties do nonetheless require three checks. I'd take the Spanish for any backup faculties that can ask for it and file your 2 maximum to the tuition you acknowledged.
  • You can, as long as you work 32 hours a week and collect child support. However, you have to wait just like everyone else, so will have to manage on your own for that time, which is about 5 years.
  • I waited for 5 years for section 8 and I no longer qualified when my turn came up. You need to get a better or a second job plus child support.
  • I believe you can. You could also get food stamps or SNAP benefits for you and your children. And you can get housing through section 8 or TANF... heres a link for more information :) http://www.hhsc.state.tx.us/Help/Financial/temporary-assistance.shtml
  • yes it is possible to get housing assistance from the government. normally there is a waiting list, in MN, its one whole year tho.
  • Like lets say i go to UTSA and by the end of my sophomore year i want to go to UCLA, can my credits be transferable from UTSA to UCLA? I searched all throughout the UTSA website to seek my answer but can't find it and my email isn't working on my phone to send them this question. So please anyone from experience help?
  • The transfer process is extremely competitive. The exact requirements depend on the department. UCLA is a flagship university of the system, and it's not uncommon for in-state students with a 4.0 and ACT in the mid 20s or higher to get rejected. The university gives preference to community college transfer students from within California. UCLA is extremely expensive for out-of-state students. http://www.admissions.ucla.edu/prospect/...I would recommend waiting until graduate school to appy to UCLA. In addition, visit the place to see if you really want to attend the campus. In Austin I worked with two engineers who had gone to college in the area. One guy went to USC, and another went to UCLA. Both remarked about how the traffic was horrible. For example, the guy from USC told me about how on one bad day it took several hours to get from LAX to his campus. LA has a major problem with smog and congestion. Be sure you do not have any allergies to pollution. Minor earthquake tremors are common, and seismologists still predict the "Big One" to arrive in the near future by geological standards. That "slowdown" in San Antonio merging from route 1604 to I-35 to Austin is nothing compared to LA traffic, which is bad even on weekends. On the positive side, UCLA is a public ivy institution. I have a relative who graduated from there long ago. The sports tradition is huge, and it's excellent for a career. The advantage of graduate school is that you can get more financial aid and can apply to multiple departments. I would also recommend USC, UC-Berkeley, San Diego State, UC Davis, Stanford, UC Irvine, etc. With good grades at UTSA a strong financial aid package in California is realistic in graduate school. Undergraduate financial aid is limited since California is suffering from a major budget crisis which hurts universities. I would recommend just finishing UTSA quickly. Rather than transferring, just stay and finish 1 or 2 semesters early. If you are doing well then you must have adapted to the campus and curriculum. I like the location on the northwest side of town without major traffic problems. It's easy to get around campus, and UTSA cost of living is very inexpensive. So it would seem best to graduate early, score high on the GRE, then apply to graduate school at UCLA and other universities in California.
  • I live in Texas, too. It depends on the policies of the company to which you are switching. If you meet their standards for a customer account, then they will accept you. Otherwise, no.
  • Go back to the original place in Irving Texas if that is the case and ask to rent there. They may know you better and give you the opportunity. Dispute the record on your credit report and say it was your husband's credit and not yours. then wait 30 days and apply. when disputing your credit report you can also put it on the statement what happened. you can dispute online.
  • It depends on the amount involved. Of course, if you want to ever open a bank account anywhere, you will not be able to until you pay what you owe. Banks have a database to keep track of these things. In some states, bad check charges never go away cause you've basically stolen money or goods, which is a really rotten thing to do. Why don't you contact the court that issued the warrants, explain that you've moved, and that you would like to set up payment arrangements to settle this matter. Most courts are more than willing to accept whatever you can afford. One last thing - if you fail to fix this, it will affect your credit, future job opportunities, public assistance, renting apartments, and can eventually lead to jail time.

  • Even if they don't catch up with you right away, eventually somewhere down the line, they will. If Texas issues a bench warrant and Oklahoma has it in their computer, then you could be arrested if you got stopped for speeding or something like that. A lot of it has to do with the amount of the checks. If they are small amounts, you may be able to just call Texas and ask if it is possible to clear them up by just sending them the money. If they are large checks, then you may very well could end up being extradited if you were picked up. Your best is to get in touch with the clerk of court where you wrote the checks and see if you can make arrangements to pay them off somehow. It would look alot better for you if you make the first move. Best of luck to you. :)
  • Yes you do! If you are stopped for a traffic violation, at the officers discretion, he can run something called an N.C.I.C. which will show if you have an active warrant anywhere in the U.S. A worthless check is a pretty big deal, so he will probably arrest you and notify the authorities where the warrant was issued to have you transported back to face your charges. You really need to take care of this matter before it gets too out of control.
  • Most states will not extradite for misdemeanors. Usually small checks written on legitimate accounts. However any warrant that shows up on a computer check from another state is sufficient to arrest and hold you as a fugitive from justice, requiring bond to be posted. Most states can hold you up to 90 days on such a charge and then release you. However that does not take care of the original charge and you could be arrested again for still being a fugitive.
  • I don't know but you should get out of that mormon cult while you still can!
  • He stole the limelight from the SEALs who killed Osama also. He sucks so bad.
  • Enjoy short-term McJobs here in Texas! Rick Perry didn't "create" jobs --- he just lured in bottom-feeders who couldn't compete in other states like California. I don't see how Carl's Jr. moving to this state and opening a whole bunch of minimum-wage jobs qualifies as "growth". Oh, and Nevada has "no state income tax, fiscal restraint, low debt, etc.", but they have the nation's highest unemployment rate. WHY is that??
  • what is next year--- oh yea,, the presidential election. remember, politicans are not your friend until it is time to vote.
  • That's what leeches and looters do in order to try and appear relevant to the masses.
  • Link please
  • Pay cash for the car.
  • A company called Drivetime in Texas and possibly other places will sell you a car, but the interest will be high. You just need a job to get approved. They are in Arlington on Division and Collins.
  • Make your life alot easier, CASH.
  • That answer depends on your credit. If you have excellent credit and no money problems, definitely BUY. If you have no money and bad credit, buying is the worst mistake you could ever make! Other than taxes, insurance and utilities, that's pretty much it for household bills. The problem is that in your price range, you'll likely be looking at a condo which has HOA fees that can be very expensive, and HOA's are usually a hassle. You also have to be prepared for LIFE to happen. The roof may suddenly leak, or the refrigerator will go out. You need to make sure you can afford to fix these things asap - so having savings is key!
  • I just ran a mortgage calculation...your mortgage payment should be about $565 - at your income level - taking into account your net mortage payments should in the neighborhood of $450. However, utilities, insurance and taxes can add up - I'm not sure about electric bills there. My gut tells me that you should be preparedto spend around $1000/month including insurance, taxes, utilities cable, etc. If you can swing those payments - I would buy - now is a good time to buy - but also, you need to make sure that you are prepared to hold onto the house for 5 to 10 years and that your income is stable. If you don't fee comfortable in your income - I'd consider renting - at $35,000/year you may not have much of a cushion in case you lose your income for whatever reason. also, i'm not sure what your living situation is; but if you are ok with roommates - why not have them pay rent - that will subsidize your mortgage payments. good luck
  • Buying is great if you can afford it. But keep in mind that home ownership comes with more cost that just mortgage and taxes. If the furnace quits or the roof leaks or a pipe bursts that is now entirely your problem. The one advantage to renting is not being responsible for all that.
  • It depends on how long you plan on staying. If you only want to stay in a area for a short time than renting is better for you until you are ready to settle down. There is always something to spend on a house you have like maintenance and repairs landscaping sewer water building a deck ect. good luck
  • If you're looking to live in the same place for at least five years, you're probably better off buying. Other bills could include: HOA fee (home owners association fee) school tax landscaper if you have someone take care of your yard improvements to your house (for example, replacing the roof)
  • i would say rent. ive owned my own home and i would rather rent than own, mainly because as a renter youre not so responsable for the upkeep and other bills,insur,etc. also on your salary i would be very careful as far as what to spend on a home, you should wait until you have a better income. good luck!
  • Buying is the way to go. If renting the same type of home is less than $740.00 piti mortgage payment. Even if renting is less, think of the tax advantages as well as the appreciation benefits. Buy...... Buy...... Buy.......
  • Buy would be best. Before buying learn real estate investment and rehab first, don't affraid to learn and quick learner take all. Need more help on subject, let hear it again.
  • What are some programs in Texas ( johnson county ) I have a small house but needs major repairs.....electrian repairs and plumbing I need help with groceries, and paying utilities they want a $485 deposit to start service because they must have double the monthly average so I cant afford it I can do it any more any ideas?
  • sell your house... you can't afford it. Move into an apartment instead.
  • I received a letter from the Mann Bracken law firm with locations in GA, VA, NC, TN stating that a claim was filed with the National Arbitration Forum (NAF) regarding my old Chase Bank Card debt, and that I must respond. I have no idea what to do here. I am worried that they will garnish my wages and/or bank account. I beseech anyone with legal knowledge of this type of situation to please help me understand what I should do. I live in Texas. Thank you!
  • how about pay off your debit, Yes chase credit card is evil and they alone caused me to have bad credit and i dont recomened them to anyone but i made a settlement with them after they cancelled my card due to one missed payment due to the fact there website was down and i couldnt log in to pay it and i have paperless billing but enough about me i ended up paying half of what i owe they took away all the fines and fees they charged me and paid only what i used.
  • If the account is more than $5000, check out the source website. If it is less , pay it.
  • Just call them and see what the deal is ... give them NO info.. Good Luck!
  • UT in Austin has the best studio arts program in Texas. They're also way cheaper than all other art colleges, and Austin is probably the most art-friendly city in Texas. Great college environment. And yeah, I would really advise you to stay away from the Art Institute chain. It's a for-profit organization that isn't fully accredited yet (ie: their credits won't transfer to any other college other than fellow AI schools)... The Art Institute has a pretty bad rep in the industry, and 3 of my teachers in high school and college warned me to not bother with them.
  • its probably lawerance marshall also i forgot to say: the 610 loop is CLOSED this weekend so i recommend not going to the sale..traffic is horrible
  • While a college degree is preferred by the airlines, they actually don't give preference to pilots who have aviation degrees. Not that an aviation degree will hurt you, but don't get one just because you think it will put you on some kind of "fast track" to the major passenger or cargo airlines. It won't. That's a fact. Any degree will suffice. What they're most interested in is solid work experience as a pilot, a good flying record, a good personal history (no DUI's, no legal problems, no credit problems, etc), and good references. By the time you have the experience to be hired by a major carrier, where you went to school, where you learned to fly, and what kind of degree you got is of minor significance. Here's a list of aviation colleges and universities in Texas if you still wnt to pursue that route. http://www.ed-reference.us/10100/texas/a... Just be advised that if for some reason a flying career doesn't materialize, stalls, takes bad turn, or you simply get sick of it, most "professional pilot" type aviation degrees can't employ you very well. A good backup plan is to have a degree or skill that you can really use if you need to. I know. I got a useless Aeronautical Science degree from a prestgious school. It hasn't helped my career or my bank account to any appreciable degree.
  • Theres Texas State Technical College in Waco and Abilene that offer 2 year programs..I attended Waco one semester then went off to a flight school in Houston..If i were you, I would find a flight school on an airport you like or thats close, then get a degree in something other than aviation as previously stated while your getting your training.
  • I don't think any UC campus does. San Jose State has an aviation program. I'm not sure if it includes pilot training, but it is worth checking out. The other option is to check out the Naval ROTC programs and the Air Force ROTC programs at the UCs that offer them.
  • Hallmark School Of Aeronautics
  • The best school of Aeronautics I would recommend anyone is Hallmark School of Aeronautics. They are non-profit accredited educator and provide following programs in Aeronautics: 1. Associate of Applied Science in Airframe Technology Degree 2. Associate of Applied Science in Powerplant Technology Degree 3. Associate of Applied Science in Airframe Technology and Powerplant Technology 4. Aviation Technician Program 5. Bachelor of Science in Aviation Maintenance Management completion program I am sure once you visit their site and campus you will thank yourself. Their site is http://www.hallmarkcollege.edu/programs/school-of-aeronautics/ Hope this helps.
  • Students enrolling in any university in Texas beginning Fall 2007 are affected by the 6 W's rule. I am confused by this. I am currently taking 4 classes, which amount to 14 credit hours. I want to drop one class. Would it affect my GPA? I currently have a GPA of 2.8 So is the W give you no grade at all? If you use it, is it like you've never taken the class, only the fact that you've lost your money? I've tried researching into this but couldn't find much details, so anymore information would be appreciated. Thanks!
  • W's are placed on your transcript to show that you dropped the class after the deadline. The W is in place of a grade and shows that you took the class. As for GPA, it does not effect your overall GPA or your term GPA. However, I have always been told that W's look worse than F's on a transcript for grad schools or any continuing education. The 6 W's rule sounds like you are only able to drop 6 classes after the initial deadline which is probably earlier in the term.
  • i had seven w's on my transcript an still got in to grad school. whoever told you that is a idiot.
  • Yes you can be sued, however in Texas there is not much chance for recovery from a creditor. Texas consumers are protected by homestead exemption on their primary residence excluding rental property. Texas is a non garnishment state. They can't levy your wages or bank account. It's actually a debtors haven. Worst case a charge off will be on your credit 7 years. Most financial institutions won't spend the legal expense to get a judgment if they can't collect on it.
  • A litte more information is needed. What was the agreement? If you defaulted on a loan, for example you borrowed 10,000 and then can't pay it back, then the business that loaned you the money can of course sue you for recovery, or begin foreclosure proceedings against any property that you may have used to secure the loan with, or repossess whatever you bought with the money, or turn it over to a collections agency, or may other options. All really depends on what kind of agreement you're talking about and why you defaulted.
  • you can do it still if you are defaulted
  • Your local auto glass shop should be able to get it for you. Harmon Glass is one company I know working in Texas. If in doubt, contact your insurance company for a referral. They can give that information, even if you're not making a claim. Short of that - I'm sorry.. The only time I've been thankful for bad credit is when I tried to buy an Aveo from Bill Heard in Nashville.. I got buyers remorse when I saw the DAEWOO sticker in the door jamb. Fortunately, they couldn't get the financing done.
  • If your goal is to judge, please don't post to this. With that said, I would like some helpful answers concerning an auto repo in Texas. I had to let the car go back about 8 months ago. It was voluntary. I got divorced and just couldn't afford it any longer. I tried several options to sell, refinance, etc, with no luck. So now I'm getting calls about the unpaid balance, which I expected, but I'm looking for information on what can really happen, other than bad credit. They keep saying they are going to "take action against me" and "do I have legal representation". I understand the scare tactic, but is that all it is or could it be worse? They can't get blood from a turnip. I don't have the money, but what is it that they CAN do, realistically. Helpful answers are appreciated.
  • Tell them how much you can honestly afford to pay each month. after 12 months of timely payment, see if you can negotiate a lump sum discounted payment.
  • i'm sorry to hear about your problem what normally happens is they are gonna keep after you for the the unpaid balance.but in some cases they offer you to pay the unpaid balance for the return of your car are they auction it off if the balance is unpaid it will go on your credit report.so you have a few option at this point. offer them a settlement are payment installment.same thing hapened to me i told my creditor i don't have nothing so i can't give you nothing even though the offer me to get the car back
  • I am in the same situation, they can go to court and take your wages up to 25% a payday if you work, or they might just be trying to scare you into paying, there is no way to tell what they will do, offer them half of what you owe, or very small monthly payments
  • Realistically, about the only thing they could do is: a) obviously continue to harass you [as you have already noted]; and b) take you to court to garnish your income. Having said that, you have certain rights under the Fair Debt Collection Act. One thing they can't do is threaten to take you to court unless they actually mean it. Also, if you formally request that they stop calling, they have to stop. I have included a link to a publication that lays out your rights under the FDCA. It should be very helpful in getting them off your back. http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer...
  • A NJP (Non Judicial Punishment) will not affect the outcome of getting a security clearance. Bad credit, large amts of debt, dual citizenship, traveling frequently to foreign countries, etc. will but not an NJP. Good luck. ADDED: If it was a major thing, they wouldn't have given you a "honorable discharge".
  • What type of security clearance? Top Secret might have an impact on it, but that would depend on what the NJP was for. Secret and below, you shouldn't have a problem. "Will they be able to find it?" - Again, depends on what level clearance you need. If Top Secret, they will find it. This does involve an extensive background check. Secret doesn't do quite an intensive check, but it may still show up. Best to be honest and up front about it.
  • What kind of security clearance, for the state? Ok Kaz, if it were a major thing she would have gotten a court martial followed by a less than honorable discharge. Thanks for stating the obvious. My question is about a security clearance for the state of Texas. I am with an OIG in Texas for the feds and am aware of no such animal.
  • It is almost always cheaper to repair your current car than to buy a new one. You're saying it will cost $400 to fix your sunfire. It is likely you can get a newer car for less than $400? Obviously not. Also, you didn't say what was wrong with the Sunfire. Can you trade it in/sell it without making the $400 repair? Generally you can't sell/trade in a non running car, and if you do, you'll lose more in trade than what it would cost to fix. If not, then you're paying the $400 anyway. So the question really becomes should you get a new car. It sounds like it's not meeting your needs in terms of size, so maybe yes. If you have no credit (not bad credit, but no real history) you'll pay somewhat more than the normal rate. Can you get a cosigner? You should be able to get financed, but you may pay a high rate. Since you will probably have to get the sunfire fixed anyway, can you keep it for a few months while saving up a down payment? Waiting a few months and putting aside the amount of a car payment monthly is a good way to see if you can handle a car payment. Also be sure to check to see what any new car does to your insurance, you will probably find that a kia sportage (which would not be my first choice, try a small honda like the crv) will increase your rate. Good luck! Good luck.

  • You can go to a local community health care center and sign up for "sliding fee" for 50% reduction of the cost. Texas is relatively a rich state that is why you are facing problem qualifying for Medicaid.
  • I am very, very, bad at math. I go to a very large public school and I need one on one attention to pass and I just can't get that in my school. They school offers tutors but it isn't enough just putting aside time for my homework and everything. I am wondering if it is possible that I could do my math classes (algebra 1 and geometry) with a private tutor outside of school and still get the credits for the classes? I live in Texas if that helps. I never thought about this as a possibility but if I can do it I will do really well in school this year because it will take the weight of my math classes off of my shoulders and I already have a lot of hard classes outside of math.
  • That is up to your school. But, I would suggest that you drop one of your math classes. If you are struggling with math, why do they have you in both Algebra and Geometry? Or, why did you sign up for both? Take one at a time!
  • GO to KBB.COM, and find out how much of a trade in amount they'll give u. KIA's suck, frankly. They definitely do not hold value, and i'm sure u probably wont get much. No credit is better in most instances than bad credit, and alot of places will work with u. Although, there are always the BHPH (buy here pay here) type places, where u can trade in ur car, also. You'd prolly get around 2k, i would say. Maybe 3.
  • go to Mannheim.com its rated number 1 car trader in the nation they tell you everything from how much you could get for a car to how much it cost and the have car fax's plus its better then going to a dealer.
  • wow, you werent kidding about the clunker part.
  • I played at the PA Sands this past weekend at 1/2 NL. I bought in for $200 and walked away with $550 after about 5 hrs of play. Yes I did well, however, the casino takes out 10% with a max of $5 PLUS $1 every hand for a bad beat jackpot. Then on top of that you have to tip the dealer at least $1 when you win, so you're looking at $7 being taken of any sizable pot. I use the player card that only credits me with $.50/hr in comps. Compare this to Binions in LV which charges max rake of $3 and a player card that earns $1/hr, which to me seems fair. PA Sands is a ripoff but it's the only place near me. Can this rake be beaten? It annoys me a lot because people don't think about these things, they just want to gamble. I wish everyone would boycott PA Sands until the rake is capped at $3 with no bad beat jackpot.
  • 10% rake plus a bad beat is ridiculous. Of course the game can be beaten but it makes it a lot more difficult. In my experience a $5 cap on the rake is more standard (in a casino) than a $3 cap but the rake should only be 5%. I would have a tough time paying 10%. I most certainly would not be tipping anyone and I would make it clear as to why I am not. Maybe a small tip after a winning session but not after every winning pot. Tell the dealers that the casino is stealing your tips (It's the truth). How well do you know your poker tells? Take the Test! http://www.areyouapokerfish.com/tells.ht...
  • 1/2NL at a casino is more than beatable...so much so that even if the cap were 15 dollars it would still be beatable.
  • In almost all states you have to have bachelor degree but not necessarily in education or the subject area. Texas is a but behind in education so I don't know but hope not. if they do it is worse than I thought.
  • Nope, no longer conceivable. Emergency certification is only to be qualified, yet you ought to nonetheless have a bachelor's degree at a minimum. even however, there are coaching assistant jobs obtainable that don't require a bachelors or certification, yet they gained't pay nicely. The commerce off is while you're working as an assistant and going to college on the comparable time, your artwork adventure can count selection as your student coaching adventure (so which you're extremely getting paid for student coaching on a similar time as human beings do no longer). additionally, you're probably to be employed as a instructor considering which you're already conscious of how the college purposes, as least it quite is the way it extremely is on the college I artwork for.
  • you won't know the answer until you contact the school district(s) personally & ask.
  • It was a pretty smart thing for Perry to pray for rain. If noting happens, and no one really expected anything to happen, there's not much of a downside. The faithful ignore it when prayers aren't answered and the rest of us know it's a matter of atmospheric conditions anyway. But if it had actually rained, LAWD HAVE MOICY!!! He would have been taking credit for it in every speech between now and the vote and the faithful would have given him that credit. They would probably have been scared NOT to vote for him.
  • He's trolling Rick Perry?
  • properly, the answer is glaring. save douchebags from mingling with one yet another. Rick Perry is a douche, as has been stated, and that i surprisingly suspect he's definitely one among the pinnacle douches, so we would desire to continually placed him on one among those surprisingly useful Russian rockets that by no potential merely explode merely off the launch pad and deliver him someplace a typhoon won't do plenty harm to do all his magical rain spell variety prayin'. like the solar.
  • God hates Texas. Perry is destroying God's good image. God is taking it out on the people of Texas. Yes.
  • because Rick Perry is an IDIOT, and God isn't real.

  • My dad needs a dental plate, because he's got bad teeth, but for legal reasons he cant apply to get credit(NO CRIMINAL HISTORY). he's looking for a clinic where he could make payments there or to the dentist himsel, he's willng to let a rookie to take all hes teeth out, but if you know anyone or a dentist who is a friend of your's please ask if he can pay.....we're tight on money but will make payments without fail....i live in san antonio tx, if you know some clinic or dentist please answer ASAP.. THANK YOU (I am mexican, so is my dad and he's got no social security # i am ashamed to say it but my dad need dental care, if you know anyone please answer.
  • The University of Texas has a dental school in San Antonio. The dental schools' usually have a clinic where they treat patients as way to teach students practical experience with real patients, and most either do it free, or at a greatly reduced cost. You might check out the dental school's website, and contact their clinic number to find out more specifics such as cost, or appointment availability. This would be the most cost friendly option. Good luck to you and your dad, I hope that he can get treatment soon. Here is the website link: http://dental.uthscsa.edu/. After in that web-site click on the patient care tab, and check out what info it has there. Good luck again to the both of you.
  • Try calling 211 this is a nation wide referral hot line. They can tell you where the nearest free or low cost clinic is. I know this number works in California. Also try going to a Church and see if they know of someone who can see your father.
  • I moved out of state from Austin a little over a year ago with my family. I finally made a visit there just recently and it made me realize how much I love and miss Austin. Everything I love is there, all my good friends, and I even have a job opportunity there. I am finally starting community college here after taking a gap year. Is there any way I could transfer to a college in the Austin area after a year? Is this even practical? I need help. PS. I live in California
  • Well, can't you just go to a community college in Austin and room with one of your friends there, and maybe work part time to pay the bills? Sure, you can go to college in California for a year, hopefully work, too and save up enough to move back to Texas. I would think that SOME credits might transfer, but a lot of colleges are pretty stingy about that sort of thing. If you want it bad enough, you will make it work for you!
  • I left California for Austin, Texas, where it has been 100+ for days. I miss the cool Pacific breeze near San Francisco. I will trade places with you!! .
  • I suggest you stay in California. Austin has turned into a nightmare. It's stinky gross, polluted, humid, and plain ol' HOT. Stay in the lovely state of California.
  • You moved away, ten jerks from Cali took your spot. Sorry, you've lost your place.
  • hi, I am a single mom of three, have a good job but bad credit due from my divorce where we had joint credit.I want to move to dallas tx to start life over but really dont want to rent. I like to find a rent to own house or trailer so how do I go about it since right now I am still in another state and looking to move in about 2 to 3 month? any suggestions?
  • Here's a great site with 'rent to own' information. Also has links to listings for RtO. http://www.rentalhouses.com/lease_option...
  • Something else that might help is this new GoSasa.com website that collects classified ads from the major sources in an area (including craigslist and newspaper ads) and brings them all to one place. I don't know how well they support the Dallas TX area though (I'm from San Diego), but it might help a bit. I hope you find something that works out for you.
  • Rent To Own Home : http://RentToOwnHome.uzaev.com/?JmRR
  • No. In order for his income to be considered he must be a co-borrower on the mortgage. To your benefit, his bad credit is also not considered if he is not a co-borrower. You should speak with your mortgage representative about the affects of including your husband's income as well his bad credit on your mortgage.
  • No. He has to be on the mortgage to be bound to pay. Without that assurance, his income means nothing.
  • No! You can place his money in a trust and have the trust pay you, that is the only way... Jim MBA
  • I know UTA is hard to get into, but I didn't know about UTPA, also considering the 'Valley' isn't the best area... I did GREAT in high school, but messed up bad my first (and only) semester in community college. I would be applying as a freshman transfer, whick *LOOKS* like it goes off mostly high school scores,but I wasn't sure. Anyone know how hard it is to get into? Or any informtion at all? Thank you!!(:
  • Hi Paige Here is the summary from the College Board about UTPA admissions: https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/colle...Look at all of the tabs - the information is accurate and useful. To an extent they even give you credit for D coursework !
  • Google it. Everything you want is on Google.
  • nicely quite, that entire must be be sure via how lots you the two make a month, AFTER taxes and reward pop out. Calculate in how lots you would be spending on expenses you have already got (automobile notes, coverage, bill expenses, groceries), and then once you have your ultimate stability for the month. pick an volume after the deductions below whats left on the grounds which you do no longer be attentive to what can ensue over 30 yrs (wellbeing expenses, layoffs, and so on...). you do no longer choose to max out your funds via any skill on the grounds that which will purely reason a headache in case you do run into any variety of subject concerns interior the destiny then multiply that via 30. that would desire to supply you strategies lots your place ought to value in case you pick to stay in charge in the time of your mortage existence. meanwhile, this would not incorporate interest, taxes and mortage coverage, even nonetheless I strongly recommend you get escrow, on the grounds that its a concern you do no longer ought to complication approximately. So in case you're thinking a pair of domicile, shall we are saying a hundred thirty,000, you the two might ought to make a minimum of three-4k mixed as a manner to pay on your place with taxes, interest, and mortage coverage mixed, plus all different expenses. Its basic math, in basic terms take how lots you will not strategies paying a month, upload approximately two hundred-3 hundred for escrow and multiply via 30. Thats your funds on your place.
  • ive been reading reviews on these other companies and from what ive been reading is that the other companies are just ripping people off. does anyone have some advice about who to switch to and who not to switch to i kno cirro is a rip off as well as amigo. i just need some help .i kno my options arent much right now with bad credit

  • They are probably the most stable. But they definately have the worst customer service.
  • Check out CareCredit, it's like a credit card for medical & dental procedures. Also ask around who your friends & co-workers go to for their teeth in general. Some offices will let you pay it out up front or as you go and they usually don't add finance charges.
  • I had a credit card from Capital One around 3 or 4 years ago, paying on time every month. I lost my job about a year ago and couldn't make payments anymore..Well earlier tonight I was visited by the sherriffs office with a form saying I was being sued by Capital One..I'm still out of a job ( I live in a small dead town). I need advice on what to do..I'm supposed to submit a defense on why I hadn't made payments. I have friends telling me not to worry about it since I have no income coming in, they can't do anything about it...don't think I should be taking their advice though..
  • First of all, if you live in any of the following states, then they can not garnish wages. Pennsylvania, South Carolina, North Carolina and Texas Second, if you have no income and can prove it, then you are considered "judgment proof" which means there is nothing the creditor can collect from. The judgment can be set aside without prejudice (proceeding has been brought to a temporary end but that no legal rights or privileges have been determined, waived, or lost by the result) and the creditor will have to wait until you are gainfully employed.. Most important, SHOW UP and make your case, failure to appear and they win by default. Hope this answer is of help to you LEGAL DISCLAIMER: The answer provided here is intended for informational purposes only.

  • On the court date, DO NOT be a no-show under any circumstances whatsoever. People often make the HUGE mistake of not showing up because they think they’d loose anyway or because they can’t afford an attorney. Not showing up is the worst thing you can possibly do. Even if you are frightened....or you're sick with a 102 degree fever...or if you think that you'd loose, show up anyway! If you don't, the other side will get a default judgement and they will get this on THEIR terms. They will tack on all sorts of add-on fees and the amount of the judgment could end up being two or three times the actual amount of the debt...so if you want a judgement against you for 3 times that actual amount of debt...be sure to stay home and watch TV on the court date. IMPORTANT: bring complete documentation of your being unemployed and living expenses: Pay stubs and copies of bills. Even if you loose, you can use this to negotiate much more favorable repayment terms. If you are out of work and don't have any assets, then there is not a lot they can do to you as non existent wages cannot be garnished. DON"T use this as an excuse to not show up in court. When you start working again, you'll probably be subject to wage garnishment. If you don't show up in court, CapitalOne will decide for you what this will be...which can be 25% of your wages when you start working again. Here is a complete guide that I made for being sued for credit card debt: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;...
  • If you submit the defense and show up for court, then they do very little now (beyond further damage your credit), but can collect the money later, when you have income or property. If you fail to submit the defense or fail to show up for court, then they win the lawsuit by default.
  • You may end up filing for bankruptcy depending on the amount and other outstanding bills. Also, you can't possibly be the only person in that predicament. I'd follow the other guy's advice and see what your options are in court. Good luck :/
  • I think they just require that you sign a statement saying why you want to change your name and that you're not doing it to get away from bad credit or illegal stuff. Just give your social security center a call and ask them.
  • This is a bad neighbor and in my opinion he is willfully harassing me and my family because we found out he is a seasoned drug addicted personal property and credit identity theft criminal and we discontinued relations. He already came onto property with fists balled up and and tried to get us to make the first hit - while he was running his cameras no less. We did a police report but where is the line, at what point do I have recourse ? We reported these activities to authorities on all 3 levels and no one was interested. So now what - do we sue for staking or harassment ?
  • If he is viewing private areas, such as over the fence and inside your house, then yes he is violating the law. Since you can't get the police to do anything have you tried the city council? Making a public statement which could get on the news will usually get someone in gear to do something, and you can always file suit against him. Ordinances are city laws, and you can get copies by going to the city hall.
  • nicely, in the beginning, i does not soak up his step-son or anybody else. call an ambulance and the police. to place your self interior the middle of that tale by employing bringing somebody INTO my living house, after being accused of issues- is downright silly. Secondly, is there any skill of blocking off the digital camera? Bush/Fence/Tree/ development? in any different case, verify alongside with your community sheriff's workplace with regard to the legality of having a digital camera geared in the direction of your place. i might block it in any way possible, and that i might steer away from those human beings like the plague, and that i does not ever have anybody in my living house- you at the instant are not geared up to manage it, you're beginning your self as much as all varieties of legal accountability
  • Unfortunately, there's not a lot you can do unless his cameras are angled to see over fences, in which case he's violating an enclosed environment.
  • "1. If the lawn has been fertilized in August, can I still use Winterizer? When should I do this? 2. I put 4 pieces of sod on my lawn that had disease in it and one of the pieces just died. What should I do? The others do not look too good either. How long does it take for the sod to take root typically in Austin? 3. how often and how long do you water this lawn in Austin right now? 4. Does soap water work as a fungicide? 5. Any "DO NOT DO's" for me? I have no idea about all this and just moved into a new home. I am so overwhelmed and am going crazy cause the nice lawn is now going bad!!!! Pls help!!! Thanks in advance."
  • I have some information about this type of grass. I live in Texas, so I know what you are talking about. I am not an expert, but can give you some ideas. Contact me. The problem is that I saved the information for my personal use, but don't have the links. It is not Ok to publish it here without giving the authors proper credit.
  • St. Augustine needs water frequently until well established. Did you buy St. Augustine for shady areas by mistake, or not buy it when you should have? Dish soap and beer mixed work for bugs, not for fungus.
  • Not necessarily. Usually no one cares if you transfer from a community college to a university - it's good, it shows you wanted a higher degree. Grad schools may want to know WHY you transferred universities. Did family commitments get in the way (you had to move closer to home to take care of a sick parent, for example)? Did you apply for a program or major that wasn't available at your previous university? Transferring universities can also slow you down; not all the credits you've earned might count at your new school, especially if you've changed majors. It might be worth it, if you're moving up to a superior school or an excellent program, but that is something you'll have to weigh for yourself. My brother attended three universities and one community college, changed his major twice, but six years later he still earned his bachelor's degree from a respectable university. And he was accepted to grad school awhile later - a foreign school that we had never heard of, but still, he earned a master's degree.
  • Not if you have a good reason, and your gpa is high. I would be more concerned with the loss of credit hours. And, remember if you want to apply to graduate school you are going to need letters of reference from 3 profs you have worked with closely on some research project. You need to develop those relationships. You didn't state how long you were in each place, that matters also. If you are close to finishing I would not transfer again, for the reasons I mentioned above.
  • Not for me but hey, there are reasons and it might depend on your future employer/grad school. Phone universities to check it out. And why do you need the switch?? Good luck!
  • I don't think it will look bad. GPA score is what matters.
  • If you have decent credit and a job the local Ford dealer would probably give you a better package but if your credit is bad then Drivetime may be your best option as they deal with older high mileage cars and have high risk financing available. Good Luck
  • Never go to drivetime. Go to ford. Drivetime will charge you far greater intrest on the car then ford will. You might pay $500 up front but you will pay more than $500 extra at drivetime over the long term!
  • Yes, you can apply. Tech's minimum GPA requirement is a 2.25 and at least 24 credit hrs completed. Some departments might have their own minimum GPA, so you should check to see what school your major (or prospective major) is under and if there is a minimum. I strongly recommend applying to more schools besides Texas Tech because that is how you increase your chances of getting into some where. You can't just put all hopes on a couple of schools, since there is no 100% guarantee.
  • It is marginal, but you can transfer into less-selective state schools with a sub-3.0 GPA. The trouble is that a sub-3.0 GPA predicts the student is at high risk of failing in the accelerated academic climate of a 4yr school. Many students transfer with a sub-3.0 GPA, and somehow stagger to degree completion, but emerge with a worthless degree.
  • You should be fine. Tech doesn't have high standards.
  • I was wondering would that be a good idea since one is way prestigious than the other. I'm afraid I might do good at UH and then tranfer to A&M and do bad because I mis,sed out on so much information or something like that. If I was to transfer from a community college, would the physics and calculus basics classes be the same as A&M?
  • If A & M will accept your credits from the junior college then they should be adequate. There is no reason to think the junior college classes are any less than you would get at A & M. The difference is the quality of the students will probably be a bit higher but UH is not really a bad university. My son went to UH and got his mechanical engineering degree. He has a very good job as a result. Some of his friends have done just as well.
  • They will ruin your credit by reporting your failure to the major credit bureaus; they may bring a lawsuit to collect the debt, including filing liens on your real and personal property; they may have you do a debtor's exam, and if it's bad enough, they may force you into bankruptcy. On the other hand, if you're disputing the debt, get help and get an attorney -- very often collection agencies are ruthless and regularly violate the law (the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, among others) which can entitle you to sue them. And, depending upon the size of the debt, if you say "then sue me," they may not do anything.
  • It takes a mark off your credit/fico score. Be cautioned, many collection agencies are now tagging interest rates to these debts. So if you're not disputing the debt and you're not currently paying it, it may be getting bigger by the month.
  • well that is nothing compared to mine I dated this guy in the military for 2 years. he was obessive compulsive and always corecting my gramar and putting me down about my clothes, hair, face, body In the end- not only did he get me pregnant he leaves for texas uses my credit cards the way down.. and for the next 2 weeks buys a enagement ring ( NOT FOR ME) on MY Credit card and marries in less then 3 months after leaving me and didnt even tell me it was over. SO 3500 later...I hope he dies and rots in hell.
  • Been there done that...yet it was with his best friend who I also trusted. My theory...men will always be looking for something better than what they have w/ out really trying for it, until they find the one that was actually is really compatible and good for them w/ out any interest in any other girl. Which is hard for most of the time for guys. Most men revolve their lives around their privates. Until their privates fall in love then, they will. Most men use intimacy to connect emotionally with a woman, not the other way around. Know this....what you won't do for you're boyfriend...someone else will! =)
  • thought mine was bad.I was one of my boyfriends first kiss,first love all that and hed talk about everything to his mates,u was 13,he was 15 and it wasnt right with him so we didnt do anything inapropriate.He used to get so clingy,and one day i find out he was with another girl at a party didnt bother me i trusted him and he was too shy and a week later he breaks up with me...but i had to help him break up with me whilst being upset lmao,he didnt know how to say it but i knew its what he wanted to say,good job i got it right realy lol.I managed to talk to him though,not knowing lasses poperly he would tell me everything not knowing the effect lol i asked if he would consider going out with her since we were now broke up and he said yes,i asked him if he wasnt with me would he have gone out with her...he said yes lmao i dont know i found it so funny but still you know,upsetting.that was my worst break up and yet thinking about it,it wasnt that bad. *hope your drink splashed on her too lol*

  • and have been accused of having Obama derangement syndrome. Should we the purveyors of truth on Y!A accept Obama derangement syndrome as the rational pursuit of the end of Obama's regime as our ailment of choice? What is the name of the sickness for those who oppose Obama? What is the name of the sickness that Obama supporters suffer?
  • I think anybody who voted for Obama has "Obama Derangement Syndrome". How else do you explain why ANYBODY would vote for a guy who: * Increased our national debt from $9 trillion to nearly $17 trillion * Increased our national spending deficit to over $1.3 trillion * Unemployment NEVER below 7.5% * Over 20 million unemployed Americans * $4.00 per gallon gasoline * Raised our debt limit after calling Bush "unpatriotic" for doing the same thing * Loss of our AAA credit rating due to lack of budget cuts * Worst oil disaster in US history * Solyndra rip off * Supporting Islamic militants overthrowing the government in Libya * Supporting Islamic militarnts overthrowing the government in Egypt * Suing the state of Arizona for wanting to enforce tighter immigration laws * Suing the state of Texas for requiring picture ID's to vote * On vacation in Hawaii while Congress works through the night on a budget deal * Flies with Oprah to Europe to lobby to have the Olympics in Chicago * Gives an iPod with recordings of his speeches to the Queen of England as a gift * Terrifies the people of New York with a low-pass flyover of Air Force One flanked by fighter jets for a photo opp. I could go on and on, but I think it's time to move on to something else. (please note that I didn't mention a single word about his skin color, since that has absolutely nothing to do with his failures as a president)
  • "The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so." Ronald Reagan The Liberal ideology is a theory which holds forth beliefs that have no basis in reality. They are Advocates of a policy that empowers a strong government to enslave its people with a high tax burden incident to the support of extravagant and unnecessary social programs destructive to both the work ethic among the lower class, and the incentive to innovate and succeed among the working class. The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy A broken government can't be fixed by the same government that broke it. @
  • Hmmmm, Obama supporters' disease. I think it's called common sense. And how about you put forth a problem under Obama. I'll call bullsh!t on three of the popular ones, right now. 1) Benghazi Don't say we should impeach Obama over Benghazi. There were over a dozen embassy/consulate attacks under Bush, resulting in over 50 American deaths. And the Obama administration tried to get more funding for protecting embassies and consulates, but it was stopped by republicans in congress. 2) The Recession The recession clearly started in 2007, well before Obama entered office. And the economy was declining all throughout Bush's time in office. Yes Obama increased the debt, but he had to to end the war in Iraq, start pulling out of Afghanistan, stimulate the economy, and end the recession. Then Hurricane Sandy came and he had to put money into relief. A Red Cross guy said it was worse than Katrina. But in Katrina the water didn't recede right away. But still, Obama handled Sandy better than Bush did Katrina. 3)FU€KING BIRTHERS!!! There are still birthers out there! Obama showed you his birth certificate! He was born in Hawaii almost 2 years after it became a state. He is a natural born US citizen.
  • You may be facing an "uphill battle" with that, I'm afraid! Here are a few facts that will make your quest difficult; Americans LOVE making money... About 65% of Americans (though not you, I'm guessing?) are patriotic enough to own US stocks... The S&P 500 lost half its value under the last Republican Administration, which is why it is unlikely you will SEE another GOP President for a decade or longer... MOST Americans now have access to the internet, so have access to information like this; http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2008/...
  • Purveyors of TRUTH who oppose Obama should be called "Realists". Obama Supporters should be called "Delusionists".
  • I haven't a word yet for non supporters I dare post publicly, but delusional fits supporters pretty well.
  • Purveyors of truth? You sound like a Jehovah's Witness.
  • First you should know facts mean nothing to liberals if it doesn't fit their narrative. And per the left if you disagree with Obama on anything your a racist. Obama supporters in general suffer from an acute case of mental retardation.
  • The way to do that would be to focus on objective, verifiable facts. Without those it all becomes empty partisan noise.
  • Good luck with that. They have been programed in "college" When I went to college it was about debate they are fed a diet of leftist shite and they are told that educated people believe this, so if you want to be educated you will believe this, if you don't believe this you aren't educated. Thus the snarky comments about the right not being educated and backward etc. How do you fight brainwashing? There is no debate there is not exchange of ideas PERIOD. Who else used this?

  • That was honestly one of their platforms in the 2012 elections. “Knowledge-Based Education – We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.”—page 20 of "2012 RPT Platform (PDF)". http://www.texasgop.org/about-the-party/Wait.

  • Yes. That is what they want to do in Texas. You see, an uneducated mind is easier to control.
  • I skimmed your link and saw no such statement. Lie much?
  • My mom's credit score is going downhill because of her husband's problems. She wants to file for divorce, just for a while, but he refuses. He then reveals that by Texas law, he will obtain 50% of her assets. It's not a problem right now, but she knows what he could do. Is there anything she could do to get out of this situation?
  • Sorry to tell you but not much. Texas is a LAW unto itself in this area and it is very difficult to skirt around such things in this state. If she is still married to him she is STUCK and it would be BETTER to try and straighten things out financially and help HIM get square with his debtors and debts too before she files for any divorce - if that is possible. Otherwise it will prob be even WORSE.
  • He might be wrong, he can obtain 50% of her assets that was earned DURING the marriage, anything she had before or after is all her's. And things like assets is, lets say she has a CD that earns a monthly interest she opened before she was married, he can have 50% of the interest earned during the marriage but not the actual CD. I suggest she gets herself a good lawyer, she sounds like she is going to need one.
  • Dont worry there are many methods of financial security in divorce cases through which u can secure ur assets and also succeed in getting divorce. Plz visit this site where u will get full knowledge regarding this subject. http://www.reviewlocator.com/reviews/sur...
  • Just file now and get a lawyer it all depends on how long they were married he automatically does not get 50 % she definitly needs an attorney
  • It's a pension plan. You will receive a fixed amount based on age, years of service, and final salary at retirement. For life. Many teachers do not participate in Social Security. Some people think that is good; others think it is bad.
  • it sounds like the teacher's retirement has some mechanism in their contract that you are credited with your SS time and wages, meaning that both would be combined when you eventually retired you would do well to investigate this further, no really on " I was told"--does the source speak with some authority?
  • My roommate neglected to pay the gas bill for about 6 months without saying a word, finally we got our gas shut off. He's acting like its no big deal. I don't really know if its a big deal or not. He's paying all the fees to get it turned on but I can't find out anything about when the gas company will come to turn it back on. Does it take a long time? I'd like to tell him some of the other consequences for this but I don't know them, doesn't it affect his credit since its in his name? Is there anything else the community can tell me? Thanks.
  • thedocto... what that link has to do with anything be darn if i know ? as long as he pays all the reconnect fees and pentalties should have it on with 2-3 days -it will not effect his credit rating but when ever he wants to set up service he will have bad rating within the company and they will charge all connect fees
  • Wow, its different in TX than here (in MA). Gas companies can't shut off your gas service legally here.. you just keep building up debt with them instead lol. Im guessing its because if they could shut off service, that people would literally freeze to death in the winter. TX doesn't freeze- which is a good thing for heating bills, trust me.
  • because of the fact the reason of the line try is the tenants non-cost and next re-start up of provider below a different man or woman's call, then the tenant would desire to be legally in charge. the line develop into in working order earlier, the tenant's movements resulted in the line try.

  • your GPA is okay and your SAT is pretty low..... but i guess your EC's will come to help and if you have a good essay than thats good too.... So i guess your chances are Okay .. but Texas A&M isnt that competitive so i guess its all right.. Do you know your class rank as well .. that might also help if you have a good standing in class rank like top 10%
  • I think you will get in. Texas A and M is not highly selective although it is an excellent state college. See if you can find their acceptance rate / lowest gpa for admission online on their website. Good luck.
  • Meaning, not much in rent, and not much in credit checks. I used to live in Texas, and I was astounded that 1 bedroom apartments in Corpus Christi were $300 a month compared to Austin or basically anywhere in Texas. My question is, where can I live with a roommate that offers that kind of city discount around the nation?
  • The least expensive rents that do not require credit checks and so forth are relatively easy to find in any city because they exist in the worst neighborhoods where no one else wants to live. But in general the least expensive rentals exist in states that have the lowest property taxes and in areas that are less desired. Often, the more rural you get, the lower the rental cost will be.

  • making this short .. My boyfriend wants me and my kids out.. I have loved and waited for him to again be intimate with me for 2 years not even a kiss and he says if I would be just this way or that way he would be this way.. It is and was a constant cycle. Last month I told him I agreed with the 100 times he told me to leave but in the end he would act as if he wanted me to stay and of course the mixed signals made me never give up I had hope and faith it would work somehow.. After all this and so much more I sat down and went through 4 years of texts and emails and realized what an idiot I have been.. So in July I told him I agree to leave.. I sent him a dear john letter and I was serious.. He asked me for another for what I thought was a sincere chance.. Well now he's the same and I'm stuck again.. My question is he told me and my kids to leave but I'm the only one that works and I can't save I pay all the bills..I need to know where I can get a grant or another way to get money legally just for the one months rent and security deposit.. I have very bad credit due to an ex husband who ruined me when I got away from him due to domestic violence which is a whole different story I never rented before and I don't know what to do I feel so trapped I don't have many friends because I'm here in CT. And all my friends in Texas my mother basically said you made your bed now sleep in it..I can't anymore.. Please tell me what I can do.. I need another chance please..
  • That's a real bad situation you are in I'm so sorry! First when a man say they want you out just get up and go all that I'll change only last a few months. You say you working and live in CT I don't know how much you receive but I would get a little apartment temporarily for me and my kids save up as much as I can. If you make a little bit of money try getting food stamps until you get back on your feet. Income tax will be rolling around the corner real soon. So with that money you can get yourself something decent. Try not to let your mother know until you get on your feet because it don't sound like she's going to help you none unless you really desperate then you can bring up her grandkids. But for now just pray God would lead you in the right direction!
  • You deserve a better life! Take a decision to leave - but plan first. Look for affordable accommodation - maybe there are support groups in your area (a church maybe?) just to start you off. The most important thing is that you accept that there is a better life out there. http://my-mind-change.org
  • I have to Say I finally moved out and I am so happy.. now he wants to work it out and eventually get married.. we are still together but I want my space.. wish we could marry and live like we are in separate homes.. Thank you for your advice.. it took awhile yet it came right on time!! :)
  • Too depressing for me to answer.
  • In short, no. I would think that all you have to do is make sure you have enough elective credits and math credits to graduate, and you should be fine. The worst that could happen is that you would have to retake the class senior year.
  • Well, I know in Huntsville, Alabama, if you fail a class, you can retake JUST that class next year, however, you still have to take the required class for you senior year, so you'll have to be in two maths.
  • Currently a freshman at Texas State University. I took dual credit in high school and my university made me transfer the credits so I have a 2.81 GPA right now in college. Yea it sucks because most of them were 4.0's in high school because they were weighted. After this fall semester I will have a 3.21 GPA with 39 college credits. I'm positive that I will get all A's because i'm on a good stand in all my classes right now and I study my butt off. I'm going to take 15 hours for spring and 15 hours during the summer at a community college. So if I get all A's, I could bring it up to a 3.55. Also, I want to transfer to UT Austin or UT Dallas, do I have a chance? I am a accounting major right now and I want to switch to MIS when I transfer.
  • 3.2 and up is good. You shouldn't have a problem!
  • I guess it depends on the person. A 3.0 or higher in my opinion is fantastic. I currently have a 3.1 GPA in college, and it is labeled as good. I have always wanted good grades, but I never been the type to cry when I get a B. I do get upset with C's though.
  • payment. To make a long story short. I have a Civil matter to go to court for soon. Anyway, the judge will see that i am low income and cannot afford the payment. I can only afford $25.00 a month or $50.00 every two months. That is it. What do you think will happen? Otherwise I am barely able to keep up with my other bills, but I am. I had a friend that the judge told the company.."work out a payment plan with her."...and guess what? She never heard from them again...cuz they knew it would take forever to pay it off. By the way, it is OFF of her credit. Just people that have experience dealing with the courts please...and thank you!
  • First you should check to see if the debt is "time barred" meaning it is beyond your state statute of limitations to seek civil action in court. If it is time barred, then that would be your defense. You can check your states SOL at the following http://www.bcsalliance.com/statute_of_li...If it is NOT time barred, then you should work out a payment plan on the day of your hearing and if they (the plaintiff) does not want to work out something, then ask the judge to make the plaintiff provide evidence that they legally own the debt or they have legal right to represent the original creditor. If you are on any type of income assistance, there is not much they can do. Worst case scenario, they would get a judgment and garnish your wages (unless you live in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Texas ). And even then, with a low income, they would only get a few dollars a month anyways. Hope this answer is of help to you LEGAL DISCLAIMER: The answer provided here is intended for informational purposes only. It is not intended nor presumed to be legal counsel or professional legal advice
  • It really depends on how much you owe, and what your other essential bills are. If you are paying for things a judge might consider discretionary, such as internet/cable at home, or a cell phone, or high car payments on a fancy car, they are not that likely to give you a break. If your only income is something very low and not likely to increase, such as SSDI or a social security retirement, then the judge and the company are more likely to work with you. At a minimum, you are probably looking at losing your cc, so you need to work up a budget and find out how you are going to pay cash for things you used to charge in the past. That alone might give you some ideas on changes you can make in your budget to free up some more cash and pay the cc's off. I would first try to work out something with the cc company, even offering to let them freeze the account and the late fees/charges in exchange for you paying this off in a year or two. Stay away from the debt consolidation companies that will post a "solution" to your question. If a court date is scheduled, it is too late for any of them to possibly help you. Be sure you are well prepared for court - dress appropriately, show up in plenty of time, and bring as many documents as you can to show your financial situation -pay stubs or benefit statements, rent receipts, medical bills, etc..
  • The result of your original court date sounds like it was continued. The obvious question is: until when? On that next court date, the judge will ask if you two have been able to work anything out. If the answer is "NO" as it sounds, they will enter a judgment against her. The collection company will move forward towards garnishing wages and freezing bank accounts
  • Sure, it's off her credit....
  • Tried all of the answers given so far already...even tried an online web business, that ended up just eating up what little money I had...so it is not like I have not tried everything I know to try. Catholic charities will not help someone on only Medicare...only if you are on Medicaid, which I am not yet....I still own a house from when I was well, which is being rented, so that helps a little with some extra income, but even that is not enough...paying rent and a mortgage, and locked into contract for that rental lease...in both apt. I am in, and the house I rent out.....BAD MESS....and the Medicare insurance does not cover the cost of my prescriptions...have asked dozens of companies about extra insurance coverage, to no avail......again.....need help here......
  • Section 8 housing has a waiting list every year that is VERY LONG...already living in a slum, that is considered section 8 type...it alone is making me MORE sick. Bankruptcy already considered, but locked into a contract on renting the house out....may try calling legalaid again....tried once already, to no avail....they basically said I would need to be considered "well" before doing the bankruptcy....I will never be "well" again....degenerative joint (Jaws, neck and back) and major anxiety disorder, and major depression....no short term memory, so that leaves out work.....
  • Food stamps in TX are only allowed if a single person's TOTAL assets are less than $11,000.....since I own a house, my assets are still not that low, but the ability to keep paying the mortgage and the apt and life's necessities, including addictive prescription drugs for sleep and pain, are draining me completely dry. I hide under the covers these days most days, praying for sleep, eating as little as possible, to keep a roof over my head.
  • You might want to consider a bankruptcy. This will get rid of the old debts, inclusing hte house, if you'd like. Then you can consider Section 8 house (housing where you pay a reduced rent). What is the nature of your disability? You are typing, so there must be some work you can do. Could you check into a temp agency to do some receptionist work? Or data entry? No reason to be "scared to death" especially in Texas. There are affordable places to live there, even on SSD. Take a deep breath make out a budget. If you can afford to live if you aren't paying your mortgage and whatever unsecured debt you may have (credit cards, medical bills) you may just need to file a Chapter 7 and get a fresh start. Call your local bar association for a number for a bankruptcy attorney who does free consultations. They'll help you get an idea of what your budget really is. Honestly, most people on social security are considered "uncollectable" meaning creditors can't take your money. Pulling from your IRA is just going to put you more in the hole because of the tax penalties. Contact the state unemployment office. They will be able to guide you to other agencies that provide help, food stamps, etc. Good luck. This is not the end of the world and you can still prevent living on the streets. Ok, since you've added more to your question, I'll add more to my answer. You say that you have too many assets because you own your house, but you aren't living there, but instead renting it out and then renting another place on your own. You say that is too much of a financial burden and more difficult when oyu are trying to afford other things. Well, in bankruptcy you can get rid of that house. It goes away as does any money you owe on it. I'm sorry, but you need to consider filing a Chapter 7. I think you may have misunderstood what LegalAid told you, or they misunderstood your position. If you want to file a Chapter 13 you need to be financially "well" enough to complete a 36-60 month repayment plan. That is not the case in a 7. Again, good luck.
  • First realize that it is not the government's responsibility to support you. It will assist you, but shouldn't be your only support. With that said, you should contact your local social service agencies: Catholic Charities is a good one to start. They will provide meals and sometimes rent assistance. You can also look into section 8 housing. You might qualify and get a rent subsidized apartment. Easter Seals will help you find employment that disabled people can do. In Las Vegas, we also have Opportunity Village that does job training, but that might be a local agency. Contact your local power company. Many times they have assistance programs for people who can't afford their utilities. The same for the phone company. If you are elderly, then check Elderly United. They can probably help with transportation and maybe your medication. Hope this helps. If you can't find this information in the phone book, then go to the welfare office or a nursing home. They should have a social worker who can point you in the right direction. Good luck.

  • Most police departments pay in step with the cost of dwelling, so for essentially the most phase the pay isn't a significant deal. Those in California around the Bay discipline are inclined to pay probably the most considering housing charges are the absolute best within the nation. Commencing salaries range anyplace from 30-70k per yr. Right here is an effective useful resource for studying what you must do now as a way to effectually come to be a cop.
  • Are you doing ride-alongs? Volunteer work? Both look really, really good on your college applications and will look good on your resume, too.
  • I'm in Texas dealing with application fees while trying to rent a house. The market in Austin is very competitive and landlords receive MANY applications and fees. My question revolves around this part of the statute "Application for leases or renewals entered into after January 1, 2008: After this date, the law differentiates between an application fee and an application deposit. An application fee is defined as a nonrefundable sum of money given to a landlord to offset the costs of screening an applicant. An application deposit is a sum of money that is refundable if the applicant is rejected as a tenant. At the time an applicant is presented with a rental application, the landlord must make the tenant selection criteria and the reasons that the application may be denied available to the tenant. This information may be included in the rental application if the notice is underlined or in bold print. The selection criteria may include: criminal history, previous rental history, current income, credit history, or failure to provide complete and accurate information. If a landlord does not provide an applicant with the tenant selection criteria and rejects the applicant, the landlord must refund both the application fee and application deposit. A landlord who in bad faith fails to refund an application deposit may be liable for an amount equal to the sum of $100, three times the amount of the application deposit, and the applicant’s reasonable attorney’s fees in a suit to recover the deposit." If the landlord rejects the application for reasons OTHER than the posted selection criteria am I entitled to a refund of my application fee, in this instance $100?
  • The text says that "selection criteria MAY INCLUDE: ...." To me, that does not imply that the list of selection criteria is exhaustive. Contrast "may include" with something like "consists only of the following." The latter is close ended, while the former is open ended.
  • The SEC is the best conference, but they're very overrated. If I were an Alabama or LSU fan, I'd be pissed that there are so many fans of other SEC schools taking credit for our hard work. For example, Texas A&M fans last week were chanting, "S-E-C. S-E-C." Their fans think that being part of the SEC automatically makes them awesome. That's hardly the case. Oregon and USC would steamroll any SEC school not named LSU nor Bama.
  • "rest that are not better than the best of the other five BCS conferences." They don't have to be the best, they just need to be able to compete with the 3rd, 4th, and 5th best teams of other conferences. LSU and Alabama are talented enough to defeat the top two teams in other conferences. Georgia, South Carolina, maybe even Missouri can compete as well.
  • Present me with evidence that another conference is better. Don't give me Big Ten because Ohio St. barely beat Cal today, who will be in last place in the Pac 12 after today. And Penn St. lost to Ohio and Virginia. Don't give me the Big 12 because a heavily favored OK St. team lost by 3 TD's to Arizona. So show me a conference where there middle of the road teams don't struggle against teams.
  • what approximately UGA vs oklahoma state or kentucky vs louisville, Auburn vs KState etc? did the different convention play that many NC video games against communities that have been quicker or later interior the main staggering 10? i do no longer think of it proves something the two way. i think of this weekend Georgia and Florida will win which you would be able to besides placed those too. Clemson will in all probability beat south carolina so placed that in case you like.... then publish the different meetings NC checklist. publish the huge 12's checklist! hi mississipi hung in with a collection it extremely is interior the main staggering 5 and could win the huge 12. no SEC fan thinks that ole pass over, pass over State, or Alabama are between the ideal communities interior the rustic. asserting maximum SEC followers think of it extremely is ridiculous.
  • Arkansas struggled because they have a lousy football team. Only morons seriously thought that Arkansas was anything better than an average football team. Auburn struggled because they were bored and their heads weren't in the game. They were basically sleep walking the entire game. And, yes, the SEC is the best conference. Deal with it.
  • We were not a national title contender, and people knew Auburn was going to go through a rough year.
  • They did have 2 teams play against each other in the Championship..
  • If "Better Than Most" wants to see moron all he needs to do is look in the mirror. Auburn wasn't "sleeping", they just ain't worth a damn.
  • Military or police experience would help more, but loss prevention experience will look good. Your chance probably depend a lot on how bad they need new officers and how many applications they received. Some things that could improve your chances are college, no criminal history, a good driving record, good credit, being in shape, and doing well during the interview if you get one.
  • If you have a clean record and your paper work looks good then you have a good chance to be hired. Williamson County has a reputation of not coddling criminals so some criminals try to avoid it.
  • If you're a big guy, above average intelligence, willing to work within the system, I'd say you'll get the job!
  • I'm an 18 year old high school student and my life long dream has to become a police officer, ever since i was a child i always had police costumes to dress up as a cop with the badges and the guns and the handcuffs arresting people and enforcing the "rules" and what not ha ha, and now that I'm getting older iv decided that's what i want to do. I wont get out of high school until I'm like 3 months away from being 20 years old because of being held back in kindergarten it was a huge mess teachers getting fired school board in chaos my whole class got held back and the fact that my birthday is in January also sucks because i was forced to start school late as well. Anyways the Educational part of the requirement's only say i quote "Must have a high school diploma; or Must have a G.E.D. certificate and 12 or more hours from an accredited college." I was raised to believe i had to have a Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice which would take 2 to 4 years of college am i wrong to assume that i don't have to have this anymore? Because my parents and family have told me some don't require college degrees. As you can see I'm kind of stuck here can someone help me out? And if the requirements don't require college would they hire me at 20 years old or would i be forced to and or want to wait until I'm 21 years of age? Thanks You and sorry for my punctuation i know it sucks lol.
  • Positions are filled on a competitive basis, those meeting the minimum requirements will not be as qualified as those with the best qualifications. And, there are more applicants than there are positions. To become a police officer, the standard requirement for most major police agencies seems to be a minimum of 60 undergraduate hours (from a regionally accredited college), although some allow substitution of military service, and a Bachelor's degree may be preferred (generally required for federal special agent positions); although some may only require a high school diploma. Some agencies (and federal agencies) have a military hiring preference, and being an officer counts more than being an enlisted person. Some agencies have age limits, for federal jobs it is 21 minimum and 37 maximum. Any major is acceptable, but Criminal Justice, Forensics, Computer Science, Sociology, or Psychology may stand you in better stead. Foreign language ability, particularly Spanish, is advantageous. Smaller agencies may have a high school requirement. And GPA may be more important than major. The agency normally provides training, but some states may have private academies (like TX). Those meeting the minimum requirements may not compare well to the best qualified applicants. Many agencies have increased pay levels for higher education, and higher education facilitates promotion. A Bachelor's degree is required for federal special agent positions (very few exceptions). As stated above, any major is acceptable. I attended an agency-sponsored Masters program for an MS in management. GPA, work experience, ability to communicate orally and in writing, and graduate degrees are what determine who gets hired for federal positions. And, there are always more applicants than positions. Those meeting the minimum requirements may not compare well to the best qualified applicants. Military service may provide hiring preference, service as an officer is preferred over enlisted service. The FBI likes lawyers and accountants, but they hire from various backgrounds (http://www.fbijobs.gov/). Other federal agency job announcements should be available at https://my.usajobs.gov/login.aspx; acceptance of applications is cyclical. NCIS’s website: http://www.ncis.navy.mil/ (oversold due to TV). You must have no felony arrests, and many misdemeanor arrests are also disqualifying, as may be bad credit. And, a domestic violence conviction will be disqualifying. Any prior drug use of any sort may be disqualifying, although exceptions are possible in some agencies. There may be a written exam, medical exam, polygraph test, physical fitness test, drug test, minimum eyesight requirements, psychological evaluation, oral board examination, and full background check. As I said, there are always more applicants than there are positions, so it may take many application submissions to get an acceptable job (at least it did for me).
  • Why would it be a bad idea? These creditors are about to sue you They will garnish your wages and tap into your assets Only if the debt is more than 7 years old, would I leave it alone google: statute of limitations followed by your state name Also, in Texas, they don't garnish wages Ask here how to deal with each specific debt. State a ball park amount, date of delinquency, and your state People will tell you how to negotiate settlements - you have to do it right Get your credit reports - this is a must They are free once a year at: Annual Credit Report.com No credit/debit card required. Don't get the score - it's useless for what you need You need the full details of who is about to sue you and the exact amounts
  • the other person gave you good advice. the worst thing you can EVER do is not talk to the collectors. you should make a payment arrangement. make sure, though, that you do not agree to pay more each month (or week, whatever) than you know you will be able to pay. if you know you can pay $100/month, say that. if they say it's not enough, reiterate that you can only pay $100/mo. keep on and on until they accept that amount. only you know how much you can pay. the more you can pay, the better off you are (saves you money in the long-run). but, if they are harsh and short and mean to you because they want $200/mo and you know you can't afford that and so you say you can only do $100/mo, stick by what you know you can do.
  • the other 2 are wrong....the collectors have to stop calling you if you tell them in writing to stop...yes, they might sue but they would much rather not do that.
  • I'm doing really bad In my College now, and I need help Bad, I'm in a community College and I want to Transfer to the University of Texas, But the way thing are now, I don;t think that will happen. I REALLY NEED HELP !!!!!!!!! I wan;t to go to school for Music and Psychology, Do I have to take the S.A.T ? Do I need a Mentor, a coach. What do I do ?????
  • What courses have you done poorly in so far? I can give you more advice if you give me more information about what you need help with or what questions you have. If you give me the name of your CC I could see if they have a better webpage that offers you information about the exact course requirements. Here are three pages that go over the requirements for transfer admissions and the application process. Any other important information will be found on the school's website. You will need to complete 60 units/credits before starting at University of Texas http://bealonghorn.utexas.edu/transfer/a...http://bealonghorn.utexas.edu/transfer/a...http://bealonghorn.utexas.edu/transfer/a...One source said they had a 46.6% percent acceptance rate in general. Here is a forum about transferring into UT, Austin that you may or may not find helpful. I personally find college confidential forums extremely helpful and kinda fun to go read through. http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/university-texas-austin/1062933-ut-austin-2011-12-transfer-guide.html You can also go to the counselors at your school. They should also be the ones guiding you and telling you what requirements are needed to transfer into UT. If you have questions go talk to them. They are extremely busy at the beginning of the quarters.semesters. It is better to talk to them sooner rather than later. My school also had free math tutoring. And I think most if not also schools have "writing centers" where someone will help you with any essays that you have. There also might be even more programs at your school that can help you --- I had to take a communications 101 class. It was similar to public speaking I imagine. For that class it was pretty basic. I read all of the chapters for that class while also taking notes and highlighting important, basic, and interesting stuff I read. I also always pay attention to the different fonts and sections the chapter was divided into. For that class I found the questions at the end of the chapter to be very helpful. Those questions at the end of the chapter will help you better comprehend the material that you just read. And since you are reading and answering the questions, there will be more ways the information is going into your brain. It will help your brain practice understanding the material, remembering it, and going back to retrieve that information. The more abstract questions will improve your critical thinking skill and help you connect the material to the larger scale world and different scenarios that people face while communicating with each other. -Say your test is on chp 8-11 after each chapter you finish reading go back to the past chapters and read your book notes, class notes, and highlights to keep that information fresh in your brain. So, if you just finished chapter 10 then go back and take about 20min-1 hour to also go over your notes and what you think will be tested in chp 8 and 9 -For the public speaking. I would make sure I clearly understood the info I was presenting on. It helps if you just get all the research and most of the presentation done early so you can devote at least 3 days to practice your presentation. Practice it here and there. I would practice it when i was driving to and from school so I had something to do in the car. Some people also practiced in front of the mirror, friends, or family -I also went to see my Comm 101 teacher for help in her office sometimes. I ended up getting an A in the class For pre algebra. I took that in high school. But if you are having trouble I would focus more on a few larger problems. Like the ones your teacher gives you on the study guide. I used to do my study guide over at least 5 times (usually 8 times) to make sure I understood how to do the problem. I also read the book and picked a couple problems to do. I think the study guide should be your best friend and do the same problems over and over again. (I personally did not think the hw was that helpful, I don't know if its helpful to others) If you dont usually read the book for math, I would recommend giving it a try. I also mentioned earlier that you can see free tutors at your school if it is offered. But, I recommend trying to teach yourself how to solve the problems first. It takes concentration and dedication and you have to sit down and dedicate time and concentration to it. -The Study guide was extremely similar to the test for me. so doing it so many times helped. Remember that the same person who writes the study guide also writes the test -Everyone studies differently. You just have to devote the time to it and figure out what works best for you.
  • What you need is a tutor. Most schools have tutorial services. Check outyour student help center.
  • Use Apartmentratings.com to check out the reviews in the zip codes you are interested in. Be honest with the community and they may be able to work with you. At my community if you don't have an open bankrupcty oi owe another community money I can usually work with you and we are a really nice community. Good luck in your search.
  • To be a detective or tactical team member, first you have to be a regular patrol officer for a certain number of years, which varies by jurisdiction. The larger the organization, the more specialized units will be employed. Generally, you may have to meet qualification requirements, may have to pass the exam (physical and firearms for tactical), and will need recommendations from supervisors. A bachelor’s degree may provide an advantage. Positions are filled on a competitive basis, those meeting the minimum requirements will not be as qualified as those with the best qualifications. And, there are more applicants than there are positions. To become a police officer, the standard requirement for most major police agencies seems to be a minimum of 60 undergraduate hours (from a regionally accredited college), although some allow substitution of military service, and a Bachelor's degree may be preferred (generally required for federal special agent positions); although some may only require a high school diploma. Some agencies (and federal agencies) have a military hiring preference, and being an officer counts more than being an enlisted person. Some agencies have age limits, for federal jobs it is 21 minimum and 37 maximum. Any major is acceptable, but Criminal Justice, Forensics, Computer Science, Sociology, or Psychology may stand you in better stead. Foreign language ability, particularly Spanish, is advantageous. Smaller agencies may have a high school requirement. And GPA may be more important than major. The agency normally provides training, but some states may have private academies (like TX). Those meeting the minimum requirements may not compare well to the best qualified applicants. Many agencies have increased pay levels for higher education, and higher education facilitates promotion. A Bachelor's degree is required for federal special agent positions (very few exceptions). As stated above, any major is acceptable. I attended an agency-sponsored Masters program for an MS in management. GPA, work experience, ability to communicate orally and in writing, and graduate degrees are what determine who gets hired for federal positions. And, there are always more applicants than positions. Those meeting the minimum requirements may not compare well to the best qualified applicants. Military service may provide hiring preference, service as an officer is preferred over enlisted service. The FBI likes lawyers and accountants, but they hire from various backgrounds (http://www.fbijobs.gov/). Other federal agency job announcements should be available at https://my.usajobs.gov/login.aspx; acceptance of applications is cyclical. NCIS’s website: http://www.ncis.navy.mil/ (oversold due to TV). You must have no felony arrests, and many misdemeanor arrests are also disqualifying, as may be bad credit. And, a domestic violence conviction will be disqualifying. Any prior drug use of any sort may be disqualifying, although exceptions are possible in some agencies. There may be a written exam, medical exam, polygraph test, physical fitness test, drug test, minimum eyesight requirements, psychological evaluation, oral board examination, and full background check. As I said, there are always more applicants than there are positions, so it may take many application submissions to get an acceptable job (at least it did for me). Contact the agency directly or look for their website, which will list their employment qualifications and requirements.
  • Requirements to become a police officer vary, and how you become a police officer varies depending on the department. Visit the websites of the police departments that you might be interested in working for. Police department websites often provide information about their applicant requirements, about how to apply, and about their hiring process. Some relatively common minimum requirements include having at least a high school diploma or ged, being a citizen, being at least 21 years old, having a valid driver's license, and having no felony convictions. Some relatively common steps in hiring processes include application, written test, physical fitness test, interview, drug test, medical examination, and background investigation. Some departments will hire you and send you to the academy. In this case, you would already have a job and be paid while attending the academy. Some departments want to hire applicants that have already completed the academy. Some academies allow you to apply, and if you meet their requirements and are accepted, pay tuition to attend hopes of getting hired by a police department. Keep in mind that there is no guarantee that you will be hired after you graduate. Getting police officer jobs is becoming more and more competitive. You should get a college degree if you can. Getting a college degree is one of the best things that you can do. Getting police officer jobs is becoming more and more competitive. Do whatever you can to make yourself the best candidate that you can. For example, don't do anything illegal, maintain a good reputation, keep a good driving record, don't get bad credit, improve all of your communication skills as much as possible, practice to improve your observation and memory skills, and become as physically fit as you can. Consider local, county, state, and federal jobs. How you become a SWAT officer also depends on the department.
  • Go to your local police department upcoming Employment Information Sessions and start from there.
  • 1: he gets credit for freeing the slaves. It was pretty much a political move to keep Europe from getting involved, but bad intent or not, he was the only president to do it. 2: he was assassinated. Lincoln wasn't very popular in his time (even in the North) until the war was over. Assassinations tend to make people either forget or romanticize past failures. So thats basically why I think Lincoln gets a free pass for the few unconstitutional things he did. Do you agree? Why or why not.
  • You forgot the most important one. 3. The ends justify the means. Had he not suspended parts of the constitution, the South would be much worse than it is now. The north would have moved on just fine with the industrial revolution. Only Texas would have thrived in the South.
  • humorous how they get rid of our rights mutually as ignoring latest immigration rules and occupying the incorrect u . s . and development a enormously paid mercenary military with constrained over sight and few regulations. mutually as i do no longer constantly accept as true with the ACLU i'm satisfied that they are there as a principled organization. that is fairly sparkling what this administrations actual intentions have been. shall we desire that issues do no longer stay this sort for long. easily the ACLU seems after each ones' rights- even to a Nazi's acceptable to loose speech. that's the theory of rights that they take care of. this could be a loose u . s . even inspite of the undeniable fact that we would all hate Nazis. it might desire to nicely be authentic if in straight forward terms in view it is under stated and the ACLU makes somewhat of bringing issues out interior the open- are we getting the information that we used to get? such countless issues have been hushed up with the aid of a secretive and nefarious administration.
  • Lincoln didn't suspend the constitution, he limited the 5th amendment and a little bit of the 1st amendment. Lincoln believe in the constitution, but had to fight and that meant going after collaborationist in the North.
  • Look into any good community college in your area. They offer the basics of the first two years of a college program. Make sure that the credits you acquire are transferable to a four-year college that you might be interested in for the remaining two years.
  • the community college will have you take some assessments to see where your skills are. If you need basic math or English classes (below 101 level) you would HAVE to take those before they let you get into the 101 classes. Of course, if you don't have the skill set to survive a 101 class then you should WANT to take the "remedial" classes so you can do well for the rest of your education.
  • It is. They may not have permission from TAA to use the lease or, they haven't pay the annual fee. A lease is a lease regardless of the copyright date. Again this may be an issue between two parties that you have no part to it. If they haven't renew the agreement with TAA is a problem between the two of them. One thing you can do is: Notify the rental office, landlord, etc about this by certified return receipt letter. This will not release you from your obligations to give a 30 day, pay re-letting fees, rent, loose your deposit and get bad credit. I have been a landlord for over 20 years, Good luck
  • It's garbage, and worse - copycat garbage! Look, there are some really amazing, hand made spirits out there. Tito's vodka out in Austin, Texas for example. Here is a guy making a premium vodka in the USA. Not Russia, Not Poland. He financed the operation by maxing out his credit cards. Now he can't fill orders fast enough, and his vodka has won numerous international awards. Then there's Collier and McKeel down in Tennessee, making a Tennessee whiskey in a traditional hand-hammered pot still. After distillation they run it through a column of charred sugar maple before going into charred oak barrels where it will rest, taking on color and flavor for years before it is ready to drink. These are just 2 examples of people working hard at a craft, making a super premium spirit for true fans of drinking. Contrast that with something like JW or MH; they're almost all "malt based" which is an industry term for cheap. They use some barley malt and all manner of adjuncts and sugar to make a base alcohol, and then they add preservatives, artificial colors, flavors and processed garbage. And then there's the whole issue of drinking with an adult palate. It takes a little effort and maturity to appreciate whiskey. Drinking Mike's Hard Whatever is like drinking Kool Aid. It is the alcoholic equivalent to a Happy Meal. You want to try the best "Hard Lemonade" you've ever had? Make yourself up a batch of Vodka Collins. Heck, use Tito's vodka!. The recipe is simple; vodka, simple syrup, lemon juice and soda water.
  • Ok, well, that was a hell of an answer all right, to what question I'm not really sure. As to the question you asked though, basically yes. It is like the guys version of mikes hard. Mikes is 4% alcohol and JW is 5%. Plus JW isn't as ridiculously carbonated as Mikes so you can knock 'em back quicker without getting that bloated feeling you gets from the mikes. In my opinion it tastes much better too. A nice sub for beer when you having an all day event, goes great with anything bbq.
  • TOTALLY! Don't go by the style, or the brand, not one size fits all. People's Beauty Watch Feb 2013 issue page 134, both Justin Bieber & Miley Cyrus have right lens lower than the left lens, not fitting properly! Even models (ex: J Crew page 21) wear sunglasses crocked wearing Ray Ban Aviator! How about Former First Lady of France, Carla Bruni, wearing a lopsided, falling off her nose-sunglasses heading to the airport? 6-20-13. Best answer is to try each one in front of a mirror. Do they slide off your nose? Can you see your eyebrows? Are they snug when you wear them? Can you see your eyes? Are they Polarised or do they have Photochromic lenses? Do you like to hide them when you wear your sunglasses? You like them? Buy them. According to the AARP Class I took - they recommend if you wear sunglasses, to pick amber lenses, if you're going to drive, better visibility. I've been wearing RayBan Wayfarers since the 80's, and I have 2 new ones to go over my regular eyeglasses. Ray Bans have been around since 1937, they KNOW what they're doing. The last one I ordered from Piperline, was Floral style, but they kept falling off me, they don't even fit over my regular glasses, like the others I've had. I returned it right away! I also suggest when paying for online purchases, don't use Paypal, it takes just once to be a victim. I was and it took 3 years to get my credit. Use your Credit Card, always, they can help you if any disputes. AND beware of international shipping, they could add 3-25% extra fees, even if the price is cheap. My merchant was from Texas, but the product was shipped from Hong Kong. Other times, when you need to call Customer Service, they speak in foreign tongue and no one to translate them or JUST they don't answer calls.
  • I think you can try this site, i bought from them before. The sunglasses comes with box, and the shipping is fast. it takes about 7 days to be delivered to my home door.
  • try finding the same frame but smaller
  • I enjoy them.

  • I am currently writing a history paper on a case know as Lawrence v. Texas. I need one article from each opinion. I have found many articles that talk about why The Sodomy Law in Texas was unconstitutional, however I am unable to find an article with the opposite opinion. I need at least one article that sides with the anti-sodomy law to get full credit. Thank you!
  • Bowers v. Hardwick, 478 U.S. 186 (1986), is a United States Supreme Court decision, overturned in 2003, that upheld, in a 5-4 ruling, the constitutionality of a Georgia sodomy law criminalizing oral and anal sex in private between consenting adults when applied to homosexuals.[1] The majority opinion, written by Justice Byron White, argued that the Constitution did not confer "a fundamental right to engage in homosexual sodomy."[1] A concurring opinion by Chief Justice Warren E. Burger cited the "ancient roots" of prohibitions against homosexual sex, quoting William Blackstone's description of homosexual sex as an "infamous crime against nature", worse than rape, and "a crime not fit to be named." Burger concluded: "To hold that the act of homosexual sodomy is somehow protected as a fundamental right would be to cast aside millennia of moral teaching."[2] Justice Lewis F. Powell later said he regretted joining the majority, but thought the case of little importance at the time. Google more details about what the supreme court judges said back then in this case.
  • Okay in all honesty i am a good student, I got into University of Texas at Arlington as a freshman and i already have 12 credit hours, im already a pharmacy technician as well. I want to become a pharmacist one day. The pharmacy program at Austin interests me and also its a party city so you cant go wrong with that :D so i will be going there hopefully next year then i can work my way into the pharmacy program. But really i have never been much of a nerd or anything, i am a bit shy and its hard to meet people sometimes, well a frat would help me with that i believe. And then the other reason i want to join a frat is because of course i wanna party...lol so is this a bad idea? Is it possible to be successful in college and be in a frat? I mean i want to at least have a little fun. Oh and will it look good on my transcript to Transfer to Austin?
  • Pharmacy school's don't care if you're in a frat. They don't care if you like to party (unless you've committed acts that make you appear grossly unprofessional). They care about your grades, why you want to join the profession, and what you've done outside of school (like volunteering), as well as other extracurricular activities (like work experience). They won't look down on you because you joined a frat, but do not let that distract you from what you need to do to get into pharmacy school. It's all about priorities.
  • UT as in Utah? or college of Texas. you ought to do it because it between the flaws you ought to do once you're nonetheless youthful. the advantages would be with you thru out your total existence.

Spread the word and don't fall for this. Beware of Hidden Millionaire seminar and website. The total cost is over $4000.00 and they will not refund your money after several days. A legitimate company would be glad to refund the money or at least pro rate a refund. They will not let you leave the seminar with a contract unless you sign up. The contract is 6 pages long with extremely small print. You should contact the Hotel where the seminar is being held and let them know about this. This may also be of interest to local news stations.
  • Thanks for the warning. Really bad!!
  • So I am a 17 year old male in my second semester of Jr Year. I go to a Early College Hishschool, which all my classes are dual enrollment, I spent my freshman and sophmore year in a high school Campus with all dual enrollment classes and Will be spending my Jr and Senior year in a University of Texas Campus, with other adult college students. I will be graduating not only with my High School degree but with 55-82 college credit hours, which is about or more than the basics. I will be graduating with about a 2.5-3.0 GPA, How good or bad is that? What scholarships can i get? What position am i in? I am rank 40 out of a class of 48 students ( the class started freshman year with a little over 100)
  • your rank does not matter for scholarships (it might help with admission) your GPA is not high enough what do your ACT & SAT scores look like are you exceptional at something that school finds valuable (all state football player? nationally ranked debate champion? etc...)
  • I am a senior and I want to go to Texas Tech University, but I cannot graduate in May because of half credit required is missing due to failed physics due to death of my brother. Also if I go to summer school, my summer graduation would be past the deadline for application, so is it okay to start college in spring 2013 or should I wait until fall 2013? My GPA is still good enough to get into Texas Tech, so do you think I should wait or start college in spring 2013?
  • You can apply now for the Fall 2012 - The last day they accept applications for the Fall semester is 1 August so you have plenty of time. You must get your SAT or ACT scores to Texas Tech by August 1 - there is no leeway on that. And you do not have to be graduated from HS before applying.
  • It is fine to start in the Spring of 2013. Just check to make sure they allow students to start in the Spring. Some schools don't admit new students for either the Spring or Summer semesters. If that's the case, then I would suggest that you start off somewhere like a community college where they don't have strict rules on when you can start. Even in the Fall of 2012, you could attend a community college if you want.
  • I'm in Texas. They advertise free installation up to six rooms and $24.99/mo for a year for first time customers with a two year contract, but I want to know what the total fee is including taxes and all that other stuff they charge for the initial setup ... do they bill me after the installer comes out or do I pay the installer when he's done setting up? Basically how much money do I need in order to start watching satellite TV?
  • If you credit qualify, standard Dish Network installation is free. If you have bad credit, all satellite tv providers charge a deposit of $200 and limit the type of equipment you can get. Most apartments, condos, and businesses and high end homes demand custom installation. Pricing for that is determined by the installer and is usually completed by local Dishnetwork dealers: http://www.sathookup.com/satellite-netwo...You can order Dish Network here: http://sathookup.com/order-tv-service.ph...Any fees for custom installation are paid to the installation company when the job is complete.
  • You can buy them from Uncle Milton who makes ant farms at http://www9.mailordercentral.com/unclemi...Or you can try this site that also has lots of useful information: http://www.infowest.com/life/ants.htmBoth sites will require that you enter your credit card information in their forms but it's completely secure. The second site even allows you to use PayPal if you feel more comfortable with that. Also, I have that same AntWorks ant farm (with the blue gel) and would like to caution you that collecting ants on your own might be a bad idea because they're not big enough to tunnel through the gel and can actually escape if they're small enough so be careful! Hope that helps!

  • If you're not 21, Denton kind of sucks. Since they're a college town, they're really, really strict about carding. If you have an out of state id, you may have to work hard to get into clubs. It helps if you have another photo id, like a credit card or student id you can produce. That being said, Denton is fun, like a small, less pretentious Austin. There are two great music venues in town: Hailey's and Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios. Both have a lot of local acts as well as touring indie rock bands. Hailey's has a great bar and, like, 80s dance nights, salsa nights, etc as well. Until recently, Fry Street was the site of all sorts of bar/restaurant/night club greatness, but it's undergoing some big bad corporate rennovation, and I'm not sure where that's all at right now. There're a lot of shops and places to eat around the square: a record store, a used book store, an ice cream parlor, a burger joint or two, coffee shops out the wazoo, and a couple of antique stores. The courthouse is great looking. You also might try to find a shop called the Sleeping Lizard. All kinds of handmade, quirky stuff you don't need. A lot of downtown is really walkable, in large part because the town's so small. A lot of students walk to bars and things from campus, and doing so is pretty safe. Also, it's a pretty easy town to just pickup people to hang out with. You know, random new friends to go around to bars with. People are friendly.
  • Denton isn't that great, just a bunch of college kids that go to the bars downtown... Dallas is much better (Uptown is my favorite part)

What are my chances of getting into the University of Texas at Austin? What can I do to my application to get a better chance of getting accepted? please help I am a senior interested in UT
  • You can always try. The worse they will say is no. They may offer you a spot if you agree to begin in the summer or the CAP program, in which you go to a UT-sister school such as UT-Tyler or UT-Dallas and then switch to UT later on. If you want Texas that badly, its worth it. Plus, your GPA doesn't transfer with the CAP program (I think, I have friends that did it but I didn't) so if college is a bit tougher than you expected, you can have a little grace.
  • Your grades won't be good sufficient. Being Vietnamese shouldn't help. you are able to attend yet another college, and with good grades you are able to flow into UT later, so your degree is from UT.
  • Not with that hat.
  • The tab was paid for by credit card and then disputed by the customer to the credit card company. My boss is informing me that since they didn't sign the receipt technically the restaurant has no way of fighting the disupte and is being forced to pay the money back and in return is forcing the server to pay the tab ($145). Is that legal?
  • Lets put it this way. It's not Illegal. It's definitely bad business. The occasional dine and dash is part of doing business (which is often what people do when they don't sign), and unless your employer has a policy of you waiting for a signature for the card (most don't) the server is generally not liable. (Caveat: One establishment I worked for DID require the server to notify management of any unsigned slips before the end of their shift - I never found out what happened if you didn't do so, was only there a few weeks). So, while the manager can't sue your for the money or anything, they can (at will employment) basically find a reason to fire you. Then again, I'm not sure I'd want to work for a boss like that.
  • No, restaurant does not have to pay There is definitely a fraud intention in the case by not agreeing to honor the bill.Law sees this and signing the bill is only a procedure.The fact that credit card was given as a payment and after the bill was paid receipt was given to the customer. Above all the client is not disputing that he did not eat there is proof good enough to pay .However there seems to be a dispute and restaurant must settle the dispute to the satisfaction of all.
  • No, the human beings who left without paying will be charged with robbery. The regulation is amazingly imprecise in this notwithstanding the owner might want to document a civil in structure. there is not any genuine regulation declaring that's a criminal offense. the rationalization being because the owner might want to ought to educate they'd the objective of doing that and it had no longer some thing to do with the nutrition or the provider. it truly is puzzling to educate. yet to rigidity you to pay is absurd! that's likewise the owner's or manager's duty to the contact the human beings and tell them what befell. to assemble the money. which couldn't your pastime.

My current GPA is also a 3.0 with all the honors classes being non weighted. It is currently the start of my junior year and by the end of it I hope to have at least a 3.2 GPA. Freshman Year GPA: 2.6 Sophomore Year GPA: 3.4 Colleges of Interest: Michigan State (I live in Michigan and my sibling graduated here with honors recently) Kalamazoo Boston University Syracuse Ohio State I do not want to go to a community college before this because I would be a disgrace to my parents, friends and myself because I put money into many things for my schooling. I have the disorder ADD so this has set me back a bit. I do not have much time to study for my ACT or SAT this year due to some of my classes hard classes so I estimate a score of about 1700 on SAT and 22-23 on my ACT. My family has money (if this helps in any way) and I am of Indian ethnicity. I am sure I can write a good college application to my colleges aswell. Any predictions/tips or anything to where I stand? I know I need to step it up this year but if I did end up with a 3.0 GPA with all these AP classes and some AP credits on some do you think I could get into some good colleges?
  • you said that you're CURRENTLY a junior right? then don't panic so much right now...just concentrate on getting the best grades possible this year! colleges like to see upward progress. so you bombed the PSAT--no big deal. many schools are starting to pass on the merit scholarships anyway (like university of texas did this year). just focus on getting really good grades by the end of your junior year, and see where you stand AT THAT TIME. don't listen to any negative advice from strangers. good luck.
  • I was about to say that you may be able to get into Kalamazoo, but I just looked them up on collegeboard.com, and you are far below their mean, I'm afraid, on both GPA and SAT/ACT. Most of these schools have only 4 or 5% of their incoming freshmen with GPAs at a 3.0 or below. The problem is that this usually means that their SAT/ACT scores would be well above the mean, and yours aren't. You should be able to get into some 4-year college, but unless your credentials improve, you need to get a little more realistic with the schools you are considering. The schools you mention are major national schools (except for Kalamazoo), and those tend to attract students with very strong records across the board. You should also not worry about things being a "disgrace" to your family. If you weren't trying, they could be upset with you, but community colleges are perfectly respectable, and if they would really humiliate you for going to college in the best way possible for you, then they should be ashamed of themselves, not you! I don't think you will have to limit yourself to only community colleges, but your choice will probably be between that and some lesser colleges. You may have to decide whether you would be better off taking some time at a community college so that you could transfer to a school of the quality you mentioned, or going to an unknown, local, 4-year college.
  • MSU might be a bit of a reach for you, but I don't know much about your other choices because I didn't apply to them myself, I only did Michigan schools. You should definitely apply to MSU but have some less selective back ups in mind. I very highly recommend looking into Grand Valley State University, it matches your profile a lot better and is a very nice school. Gorgeous campus and many strong programs. Not quite the prestige of MSU, but you need to apply to some less selective schools, too, your record doesn't exactly command the same level of respect as MSU either. GVSU is probably a good match for you. I'd still pick a safety. I had around your stats but a slightly lower GPA and didn't get into GVSU, but I did get into Eastern, Central, Ferris, and Northern. Of those, Northern was my favorite but Central was a close second. I'd look into some of those and maybe try Northern as a safety, you'd have a very good chance of getting in there. I also strongly urge you to research MSU's disabilities office. I have ADD and dyscalculia and a big part of the reason why I chose U of M over MSU is because MSU's disabilities office is seriously below par. If you intend to ask for accommodation, or even think it's possible you could POSSIBLY consider it in the future, I'd do some major research before you leap into that.
  • You might get into one of the colleges you mention, but you should apply to some of these for insurance: University of Dayton (Ohio), University of Oklahoma, University of Missouri, University of Kansas. I selected these from the Sept. 2009 college edition of US News magazine as they admit a very high percentage of applicants and your expected ACT scores are within the median 50% of their admitted students, although they are at the low end. I am fairly certain that you will be admitted to at least one of these, particularly the University of Dayton, as it is a private college so you will not be at a disadvantage compared to state residents. It is a Catholic college, but most Catholic colleges do not push religion on non-Catholic students, although you may be required to take a religion course. It is very welcoming to students of various ethnicities according to its website. I do not recommend Kalamazoo. I do not know it personally, but everything I have read about it is negative. I strongly suggest that you get private coaching before you take the ACT and SAT tests. It should raise your score by at least 100 points on the SAT and by a proportionate amount on the ACT. BTW, since you are not applying to the very top colleges, you will have a better chance of acceptance with A grades in regular classes than with B grades in AP and IB classes. The colleges to which you will apply will be much more interested in your GPA than in AP or IB classes when they consider whether to admit you. You are smart to start planning so early. You should try to visit some of the colleges. Good luck.
  • 2.6 to 3.4? I didn't know GPAs could jump that high. Get your grades up and start studying NOW for the SATs, grab a prep book and study as hard as you can DAILY. You need to get that score of 1800 or above so you can get into all of colleges of your choice. Nice ECs but work on pulling that SAT up.
  • I need a bank that has a second chance checking account, & will also let me cash checks. I was scammed a few years ago and now I'm not allowed to cash checks at my bank, but I need to be able to do so. I was young and naive and didn't know that I was cashing a bad check. Now they won't let me live it down even though I was the true victim. Any advice will help, thank you & have a good day ;)
  • Try a credit union or a small local bank (not a chain) that might not subscribe to CHEX system Unfortunately your situation is very common as people fall for fake check scams
  • okay well. I live in Texas. I will be 17 on Aug. 26...Ever since I was 14 (when my granparents died) my mother has been looking after me...That is the bad part...She married my step dad who is a registered sex offender..Dont get me wrong he is a good father but the fact that he is a registered s.o and that my mother will not work that makes us move around a lot and i mean alot! In January of '09 my mother had another kid...For a couple of weeks it worked out good, then she didnt take me to school I lost my credits to be a JR and had to stay at home and play mother to my babysister...In about April of '09 I met my cousins and they thought my stepdad was my boyfriend and my babysister was my child...(at 15 what!?!?)...So my cousins took me in my mother gave them temporary rights..In May I ran off to my dads. He fought the battles for about 3 months, he asked me to sell myself, my mom came and got me..things got worse though, she was drinking and so was my step dad and he gets abusive when he drinks. I still suspect something happened between him and my 12 year old sister...but nobody can prove anything...My mother kicked me out in September..I went to my tias and she got tired of having to put up with everything and took me back to my moms in the end of September...My mother pulled me out of school and wouldnt let me go back. I finally got ahold of my cousins again and they took me back in when my mother signed temp. custody for school over that was in Febuary of this year. Since then Ive had no contact with my mother nor my dad...My mother called my cousin Sat. saying all this stuff, and sadly she believe it. Ive had the cops, CPS, Adapt and evrything else try and help me, they can't or they just don't bother...She is coming to pick me up this weekend...Running away is my only true option..Im making plans and I don't know how they are going to work....I still am confused though, I really don't know what to do... -this isn't everything with me and my mom the story goes on and on. --please don't say running away wont solve anything, living with my mom won't either. ---if you want to tell me something/ or ask for more information and don't want to put it on here please feel free to email me @ cheyyze@gmail.com thanks, CZES
  • Running away will only make things worse, believe me. I used to know a homeless girl and I talked with her often about her lifestyle. She ran away from home to escape an abusive, alcoholic dad. Her mom was in prison. She slept in condemned buildings and deer blinds, had to resort to shoplifting and getting food out of dumpsters, often got sick, and all homeless shelters had to offer was a warm bed for a night. Tell the cops and be adamant about it. Provide evidence. That's all I can really offer.
  • Why ask approximately the penalties if you're so certain of your self ? I won't provide any recommendation on account that you simply have no idea something approximately it and when you have been certain you could now not ask recommendation. I ran away at age eleven however brain you I didn't stick round to invite questions however I was once road intelligent opposite to you. The factor approximately strolling is that you simply ought to have a few plans and with a bit of luck you may have been out to your possess earlier than, have you ever ? ^^ You will usually scare those that love you to he.ok and again so feel earlier than. Of direction when you consider that you are going to be long gone how can any individual wager that you've got run away ? or some thing occurred to you ? So certainly the Police will appear out for you. If you're observed you are going to be introduced wherein you ran from. Now relying if you're fortunate to your shuttle ? It isn't a individual lifestyles in the market and one ought to be extra thant wary ! THINK rough earlier than doing so.. truly rough !
  • Hmm... Troll. Registered sex offenders are not allowed around children. Edit; It doesn't matter if the judge told him he had to stay away from children or not. It's the law and should be implied.
  • A registered sex offender is not allowed around children. How was your mother able to marry him and have him around you?
  • Yes, you can get your license. It's the felony that prevents the license. But you're going to have a hard time getting an employer or appointment, wiht that kind of backround. I'd find the employer first, THEN get the license.

  • nope
  • Yes, I think you have a good chance! You meet all the credentials and have a good resume. I'm also a senior and TCU is my top choice as well! Good luck..hopefully they will let us know soon :)
  • It's not A's and B's. It's the credits that you have! I believe that it is like, 240 credits or something in your high school year. Go to your school counselor and ask him/her. It's not your grades, its the credits that you have. Although I think everyone requires 4 years of English.
  • DO NOT JUST WALK AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You will make it nearly impossible to get another home when you move, not to mention getting any services when you try to get an apartment in Texas. Hire a realtor and rent your house out for the cost of mortgage plus the realtor's fee. This will keep your credit in good standing until you decide to sell the house.
  • Renting is an a great idea, if you can get it rented for even close to what your mortgage payments are. Hire a property management company to manage it for you if you're moving a great distance away. The reason for this is that as a landlord you are responsible for maintaining the home and if the toilet clogs etc, you've got to be able to get it fixed in a timely manner. If you can't do that google "I Buy Houses" or "We Buy Houses" and put in your area. For example google "I buy houses miami, fl". That will get you pointed to an investor who can take it off of your hands depending upon the equity in your home, you may even make some money on it, but it really depends on your specific situation. Also, be wary of people who say they can lease your home back to you or who promise you the moon and stars. A good and experienced investor will give it to you straight. you may want to check out the gurus...they all still buy homes in distress. www.Robyn Thompson.com,www.homefinanceoptions.com, www.NoCreditHomesDirect.com, www.firstalliancecap.com are a few that I know of. Hope that helps. Take care and good luck.
  • Ohhh don't walk away. Property is a big investment. I know my boyfriend's house has doubled in the past like, 10 years. Cling to it!! Why don't you rent it out? If you're having trouble paying, this guide might help you.... http://www.whatdebt.org . I just found it (it's like, the simple explanation without the $3500 pricetag that the well-advertised software out there has) and am going to use it to pay off my own mortgage. I think you should do whatever you can to keep your house, or at least sell it if you don't want it anymore. You could advertise it for rent or for sale at craigslist.
  • Foreclosure, bad credit. If you want I know a few investors (they are good people and won't screw you over) who may be able to help you.
  • i dont know, have you tried to rent out the place?
  • It won't be the Twins. They won 87 games last year and now don't have their closer and the Twins starting pitching is not as good as the White Sox and Tigers. Texas also won 87. They may win more but I think it will be teams that did bad last year that will show a bigger improvement. Same with the Braves who won 86. The three biggest improvements from 2008 to 2009 were teams that finished under .500 in '08 (Mariners 61 to 85 = +24, Rockies 74 to 92 = +18, Giants 72 to 88 = +16) I think the Mets will improve by at least 10. They have their injured players back plus they picked up Jason Bay. They only won 70 last year and I think they can get over 81 this year. Arizona also won 70 in 2009. They should improve on that easily. They'll have Brandon Webb back soon and added Edwin Jackson to a staff that also has Dan Haren. Justin Upton is going to be a super star soon and Miguel Montero is an underrated catcher. My third choice would be the Washington Nationals. They went 59-103 last year. A 69-93 season is still not good but it would be a 10 game improvement for them.
  • My crew, the Rockets, have ultimately reached .500! :) we are rather extra effective than what our record shows regardless of the undeniable fact that it truly is great. we've finished a lot extra effective this month then at the same time as because the season began. We had some injuries to necessary gamers (Aaron Brooks and as continuously, Yao Ming). Out of the Texas triangle, we are for sure no longer as solid. they're (SA and Dallas) are doing large this season. we desire to commerce Yao very quickly if we opt to get lower back into the playoffs. we can maximum in all probability end contained in the 9th seed or eighth, if we get fortunate. very last season became rather spectacular and with the exception of the start of the season, this 3 hundred and sixty 5 days is putting out to besides. we are nonetheless the scrappy crew we continuously were..it really is what makes my Rockets so unpredictable and relaxing to exhibit screen!
  • Braves, Pirates, Rangers.
  • Pirates, Mariners, Braves.
  • Braves, Rangers and Twins
  • I think I agree with you on Atlanta and Texas but not so much on the Mets. Hopefully the Orioles with their young talent but maybe the SF Giants.
  • I agree with ShyGuy. But I'm adding the Giants and Mets to that list too.
  • Imagine GW Bush a 6+ Governor from a huge oil state (Texas) will say anything to get elected. Yale with a D average, likes to hunt, and a religious fanatic A failure as President. Palin has much less experience, rises out of the blue and expect the world to embrace her. She is changing her views as we speaks. Palin is a worse version of Bush ( less education) and very similar What is a VP? What Global warming? College professors are afraid of Her and you wonder why....I only give her credit that she can speak and lie with a straight face.
  • Much more closer to the worst combination of Spiro T. Agnew and Dan Quayle combined. She's only a distraction to remind us that republicans are so out of ideas on issues they have to make her an issue. No new Agnews
  • Palin is a joke! Everything she said in her interview with Charlie Gibson was the same old rhetoric we've heard for the past 8 years. I felt like I was listening to bush in drag. For REAL change, vote for Barack Obama.
  • Yeah the Neocon Evangelicals are pretty much all the same in that they believe that they should govern an entire country of 300,000,000 people according to what they think Gods will is. The problem with that is - those beliefs are not the majority of ALL people in the country- its just the Evangelicals they care about. Anyway- Lets hope that McCain doesnt pass if he is elected...
  • She's dumber than Bush but highly dangerous than McCain. She think about the US possibly needing to go to war with Russia. Let Georgia and Ukraine join NATO–who cares–as long as the US gets out. Palin is out of her mind.
  • No. Wow 3 issues. She sounds the picture of Bush. And all of us comprehend that he motives hurricanes and so on. desire she would not supply us as many failures as Bush. Boy, isn't it thrilling to easily hate Bush? i comprehend YOU do!!!
  • She's about as smart, pronounces nuclear nu-ku-lar (dumbass), knows nothing of how the world works, and thinks she can get away with lying all the time. She is Bush in a skirt. John McCain is a Liar.
  • Man, I was talking to my sister, a grown FEMALE, has no interests in politics whatsoever. I said to her a VP candidate from Alaska is a female for GOP. She said who is she? I said Governor of Alaska. She says Wow, what a stupid choice for VP, Alaska is the smallest, worst state.
  • The only difference is that Bush is a guy (doubt that more and more each day) and Bush was dropped as a baby.
  • You are obviously a democrat. I think that for the last thing you said you were talking about obama. Look at the ******* facts. She has more experience then obama, and since you people dont have anything bad you can actually say about her, you have to make **** up. At least she isnt connected to a terrorist like obama. You dont scare me, i scare you. If i scare you give me a thumbs down McCain Palin 08
  • truly she is couldn't you tell from her interview its the bushes all over again america is truly in trouble for sure!!1
  • In my opinion I believe punishments for crimes such as robbery/ theft, 1st and 2nd degree murder, rape, kidnapping fraud, personal identity theft, and credit card/ number theft should be a automatic death penalty, not by lethal injection or those other humane methods, but instead a painful and slow method, because I firmly believe it will be a deterrent to criminals. What is your opinion?
  • For the worst crimes, life without parole is better, for many reasons. I’m against the death penalty not because of sympathy for criminals but because it isn’t effective in reducing crime, prolongs the anguish of families of murder victims, costs a whole lot more than life in prison, and, worst of all, risks executions of innocent people. The worst thing about it. Errors: The system can make tragic mistakes. In 2004, the state of Texas executed Cameron Todd Willingham for starting the fire that killed his children. The Texas Forensic Science Commission found that the arson testimony that led to his conviction was based on flawed science. As of today, 138 wrongly convicted people on death row have been exonerated. DNA is rarely available in homicides, often irrelevant (as in Willingham’s case) and can’t guarantee we won’t execute innocent people. Capital juries are dominated by people who favor the death penalty and are more likely to vote to convict. Keeping killers off the streets for good: Life without parole, on the books in most states, also prevents reoffending. It means what it says, and spending the rest of your life locked up, knowing you’ll never be free, is no picnic. Two big advantages: -an innocent person serving life can be released from prison -life without parole costs less than the death penalty Costs, a surprise to many people: Study after study has found that the death penalty is much more expensive than life in prison. Since the stakes are so high, the process is far more complex than for any other kind of criminal case. The largest costs come at the pre-trial and trial stages. The tremendous expenses in a death penalty case apply whether or not the defendant is convicted, let alone sentenced to death. The tremendous expenses in a death penalty case apply whether or not the defendant is convicted, let alone sentenced to death. Crime reduction (deterrence): The death penalty doesn't keep us safer. Homicide rates for states that use the death penalty are consistently higher than for those that don’t. The most recent FBI data confirms this. For people who lack a conscience, fear of being caught is the best deterrent. Who gets it: Contrary to popular belief, the death penalty isn't reserved for the worst crimes, but for defendants with the worst lawyers. It doesn't apply to people with money. Practically everyone sentenced to death had to rely on an overworked public defender. How many people with money have been executed?? Victims: People assume that families of murder victims want the death penalty imposed. It isn't necessarily so. Some are against it on moral grounds. But even families who have supported the death penalty in principle have testified to the protracted and unavoidable damage that the death penalty process does to families like theirs and that life without parole is an appropriate alternative. It comes down to whether we should keep a system for the sake of retribution or revenge even though it isn’t effective in reducing violent crime, costs much more than alternatives and, worst of all, can lead to the nightmare of executing someone for a crime he didn’t commit.
  • 1
  • I do think we are too humane when it comes to punishment. Theft and robbery should be 5 to 8 years in my opinion. Murder, kidnapping, rape or anything else that will harm someone in the long run should be death. In fact I think they should re-live the crime to see how it feels. I think we would have a lot less people commiting crimes if we amped up the punishments. Just look at other places around the world. These people should not be allowed to live normally after a crime is committed, no matter how much mental or physical torment they go through.
  • Thanks for the input. I assume you're okay with the fact that YOU might one day be charged because of a misunderstanding, an error by the police, or outright lying by someone? I'm sure once we find out the mistake we'll send a nice card and an apology to your family. I assume you are also fine with the fact that there is no statistical evidence that harsher sentencing has EVER resulted in a reduction in crime rates? It is NOT a deterrent, and in fact several studies have shown that abnormally harsh penalties will actually result in INCREASED crime? The logic is that once a person knows that they face the death penalty, they have no incentive to turn themselves in, and MUCH incentive to kill any witnesses.
  • Because the Death Penalty is such a deterrent against Murder?!?!
  • I will be 17 in 5 days and I'm going to be a senior in high school. I'm enrolled at the local community college's dual credit classes in which I will need transportation to and from school and the college to get there. My mother doesn't have a disability, but she works so I cannot get to where I need to without the trouble of trying to get a ride, which is always troublesome. I watch my brother and sister as she is at work and is a single, working parent. I'm also working nights afterschool to help pay for my dual credit courses which also requries me to be able to drive because my mom and I are at work at the same time so she can't be the one to get me where I need to. Will the Texas Department of Public Safety be able to accept my hardship?
  • You might qualify, they will grant one for 1.) Unusual economic hardship 2.) Death related emergency 3) Sickness or disability of a family member 4.) Enrollment of Vocational education You may be able to obtain one under #4, the only thing you can do is to apply filling out form DL-77 and see what they say. Worst case is they say no. If you do not have drivers training then you have to renew this license every 60 days, if you have had training then renewal is every year http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/DriverLicen...
  • If you are 17, why can't you get a regular license? In My state, a hardship license is for when your regular license has been revoked for dui or drug possession, and you can prove you need a license
  • I'd like to at least earn SOMETHING between 2,700-3,500a month to start but i know i might be pushing it. I've been living on 400dlls a month as a colleg student so anything goes right now! haha no but seriously I was considering accounting but i have bad credit so i don't think anyone will hire me.. ever! What do you think?
  • The first thing would be to decide on what you want to do with the degree. Then find someone in that particular career field. Ask them what degree, experience, internship etc. they got in order to do that job. Do NOT speak with a career counselor or adviser about your degree when it comes to jobs. They will tell you any degree is great.
  • You need to do more back ground checking. Check their credit, good credit indicates they are honest, bad credit, dishonest. Also, pay attention to how often they switch jobs, you want people who stick to the same thing at least 5 years at a time. Where you are you also need bilingual and likely more mature, your clients want to talk to people they think have some life experience, not someone who could be their child.
  • Pick me! I'm searching for a job like this! My dad flips houses as a career and I've done a lot of work for him!!:).
  • where r u looking? check with colleges; find a RE student or management student
  • Ok...What happened? The last time I heard anything new on the Redskins coaching search, the leader in the clubhouse(so I had heard) was Jim Fassel. Now Daniel Snyder Comes COMPLETELY outta left field by naming a guy who he'd hired as his O-coordinator, what? A week, two weeks ago? I need a Redskins fan to explain this to me please?????
  • This might not be as bad as you think Mike Holmgreen has had several assistants turn into head coaches. John Gruden is with the Bucs, Mike Sherman is with the Texas A&M Aggies, Andy Reid is with the Eagles, and Jim Zorn is with the Redskins. If you think about it Zorn turned an average Matt Hassleback into a multiple time pro bowler and a one time NFC champion. Imagine what he could do with Jason Campbell who has alot more potential then people give him credit for. I believe this is a good move just because Campbell will be developed and the new D Coordinator will be in control of a powerful D.
  • the only explanation I can offer is that Daniel Snyder is a douchebag who has no idea what he is doing. Nothing against Jim Zorn...I mean who knows he could turn out to be a very good head coach for all we know (And I hope that's the case for the sake of the Redskins) Not to mention for the sake of Jason Cambell. Cambell is never going to develop into anything as long as Snyder keeps changing coaches on him. The team, and especially Cambell need some sort of continuity if they ever want to get past the first round of the playoffs, and most of the time they don't even make it that far. Ever since Daniel Snyder took over the team it has just been a series of failed head coaches, failed seasons, failed everything. I think the only way they have a shot to turn anything around is if we could some how dump Snyder
  • snyder is clueless, ill agree with that....he should have snagged jason garrett because everyone thinks he is gonna be a good coach and it would have taken the future coach of the 'boys (their rivals)...but we need to hold judgment on zorn, who knows what hes going to do? snyder definitely could have gotten a more established and experienced candidate tho considering he is the leagues richest owner
  • hey whats to explain its a typical dan snyder move.the man knows absolutely nothing about football or team chemistry..im sorry but redskin fans have to start realizing this guy needs to sell the team before theyll win another title.
  • He retains sounding more suitable suited and larger suited to me. Portis is gonna tear it up less than his offense. JC's gonna get an wonderful possibility to regulate into an wonderful participant. i'm very very much surprised at Snyder no longer going for a favourite individual, i imagine that is were given a incredibly sturdy possibility at determining, I genuinely like him more suitable suited than Fassel and Meeks. Mooch ought to were incredibly sturdy, yet i don't recognize, i love this guy. the way he's talked in interviews and each and everything and the failings Joe Gibbs has stated about him, he sounds incredibly tremendous to me.
  • Dan Snyder =dumb a** owner
  • Some owners in the NFL dont know football.
  • long story short, lost my id @ 20 yo. someone got multiple no insurence tickets in my name. dealt with the tickets with jail time and $1500, but they tacked on $3500 to the state for surcharges. now im 24 & laid off but since the job market is slim pickens i cant even get a minimum wage job b/c i have a SUSPENDED LICENSE! i would have luck with no license but this is as bad as a felony. the state wants $ & dosent care if the offender was me or not. what can i do?
  • First file a police report on the identity theft, if you haven't done so already. Then file the report with the credit unions. The state is not going to just take your word for it that your identity has been stolen you must file that police report. Next, gather evidence that you were not the driver when these tickets were issued. I know it is harsh but identity theft usually means the victim has to do the work of finding the evidence. If you can produce the evidence the state will stop hounding you for the money and will reinstate your license. Good luck.
  • I'm 18 years old and I'm getting ready to graduate high school so I need a car that I can go to school and work with. My mom won't co-sign anything and I can really only afford a $500 max down payment. I'm looking for a place that will do in-house financing because I don't have any credit. Preferably I'm looking for anything that's no more expensive then $5000. I need a car ASAP! I live in San Antonio, Texas. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!
  • thats a really tough situation. if you dont have a co-signer most places wont even look at you and you need to have a job for at least a year. $500 is nothing to any dealership. at carmax if you have bad (or no) credit they may accept you but you need at least 3000 down. just keep saving. and then look on craigslist.
  • Maybe in a different section...? EDIT: Excuse me, I'm sorry. I thought I was in a different section. How did I get here...?
  • she is 18, she came down to visit me and my family recently without telling her parents, they found out and called my house threatining to send me and her to jail. the charges? nude pictures that she sent to me when i was 18 and she was 17 about to be 18, another charge was theft, apparently she stole her moms jeep (that she has been driving for two year) to get to the airport that was 5 min away, and the last charge is the credit card that was under HER name, her mom said she could use it in emergencies, she considered that an emergency but her mom is bieng a ***** about it. but thats not the worst part, during the time she was visiting, her mom calmed down and said to her and to me and to my mom that if she goes back and fixes the whole college thing she can come right back and live with me, believing what she said we agreed for her to come down to texas to pick her up and take her home, but as soon as she got home she called me telling me that her mom was threatening to send her to jail (with the offenses i said earlier) if she deosent attend college, she deosent want to go to college, she wants to move over here. her mom lied to me and my family saying she can arrest me for sending nude pics to her (but thats just it, i never sent her any pictures of me naked. ever!) her mom is lying about everything trying to scare her into going to school, she is also making her pay for plane tickets that her mom bought even when she told her not to buy them but she still did knowing that she wouldent make the flight, can she do that? we need help! her mother is hurting her emotionaly telling her lies about me and my parents and how she will ruin her life! CAN ANYONE HELP US???????
  • hon... let it go for a while.. U are setting yourself of for failure. U are young.. and u need to explore.. and u are trapping ur self w/ her.. how are you gonna send her back if it doesn't work out? yes.. they are all threats.. but put ur self in their shoes.. leave her alone.. for now.. let her grow up some.. she did a stupid thing.. in the name of love.. leave it at that.. good luck. go !!! hook 'em horns...
  • 1 she send you the pic so her mom can't do anything about it, this is her prob. 2 if police come to your house tell them that your not with her when she steel a car. 3 U give her a place to live because you are her friend. 4 this Cridit card is belong to her and her name is on it, so its mean you and your friend did not steal the card. Tell her mother a warning that she has to stop bothering you other wise your gonna tell pollice that she is harrsing you.
  • This is what my freshman first semester classes would look like at Texas Tech: Calculus - 4 hours Essential Of College Rhetoric - 3 hours American Government - 3 hours Principles of Chemistry I - 3 hours Principles of Chemistry I - 1 hour Engineering Analysis - 3 hours Total = 17 hours Does anyone know how many classes/hours can during the summer of 2014? I want to take Trigonometry before I take calculus to refresh my memory in math, because in order to get into the Engineering program I need a 3.0 or better in all of those classes!
  • I would totally recommend taking college Trig before Calculus. College level calculus isn't like high school calculus. Trig will give you a chance to get used to college math. 17 is a heavy class load. How heavy depends on your school and the classes you are taking. Calculus will take up a chunk of your time, unless you are great at math! English classes can be difficult, but they tend to be more busy work. I have enjoyed all of mine. American government isn't usually too bad. If you are taking intro to chem, that isn't hard at all. If it is general chemistry, expect to have to put a fair amount of work into it. I know nothing of engineering classes. For summer semesters, you want to keep them kind of light. Depending on the school, they may cut the material down to fit the time frame or they may just squish the material into the smaller time frame. Find out which one your school does before you sign up for a bunch of classes over the summer. Taking trig then will likely be OK if you have taken trig or calculus in high school. I would recommend talking one or two classes at the most for your first summer. If you are motivated and can afford it, taking three or four classes over the second summer can get you done with your degree faster. If you are going into engineering, consider keeping your summers open for internships.
  • You know how little kids always say they want to be a fireman or a teacher...Ive always wanted to be a house wife. When I got older, I felt that people dont do this anymore, so I went to college and graduated and I was working 2 jobs while I was in school. I took care of my husband all throughout college while he stayed at home and went through his depression. Now that he is the one working and in the military I had to quit my job to move around and he wants to take care of me so I can stay home and take care of him and this feels so right! But when I go visit him at work or talk to other women, they look at me funny like theres something wrong with me. He bought me a car and the sales lady gave me this evil look because his credit card was in my wallet not his (I had it because I needed it to pay bills not because I was going on a crazy shopping spree). So do other women think I am a bad person because I would rather stay and home and bake cookies for my husband over going to work and having a carreer?
  • This is not anyone else business and if it works for the two of you then it works no one else has any right to tell you how to live your life and if it makes you happy to stay at home and bake cookies and your husband is happy the whats the problem .maybe other women wish they were in your position and wish that they did not need to go to work take no notice your happy enjoy it
  • Be yourself...don't care of other...u have a right to do anything with urself... respect that...like u i also have a dream of having a marriage and be a husband from my childhood and that's matter me most...so just live with that
  • I also live in Texas, so perhaps this might help you. In many school districts, it is suggested for a student to attend high school for four years in order to develop sufficient social and intellectual skills required by many colleges. However, if you are willing to skip a grade, I would encourage you to graduate as a junior instead of skipping such year, therefore you would be skipping the fourth academic year. You can talk to your counselor to speed up the process, this means that you will be required to earn extra credits through summer school classes, credit by exams, and you could also convince a teacher to create a ZERO period class. In this way, you should be done by next year's summer (depending on how many credits you currently need). It may sound difficult but believe me, this is much easier than taking many tests as you first proposed in your first idea. I hope you make the best decision regarding your future as in academics and studies since these steps are fundamental in life.
  • I was stationed in Corpus many years back. I always break stones on all the people who ask for good surfing spots in Texas. because THERE AREN'T ANY.. The Gulf has about the worst surf in the US.. But, I have to give a lot of credit to Texas surfers, they are very patient. They wait for the few days when there is surf, and they make the most of it. Unfortunately, the Spring breakers have occupied Padre Island (back when I was there it was dunes and sea gulls only), and there really isn't any place else to go. Now, if you were to go south of Matamoros to la Pasca, the drug bandidos will get you. If you go north to Freeport or Surfside Beach, you'll probably miss the spring break crowd, but it is probably as boring there now as it was in the 70s. When I ws there, I drank lots of beer, and improved my sailing skills in Corpus Christi Bay. the only surfing I got came courtesy of a tropical depression.
  • Three games. Not thirty-three. A lot can still happen so calm down and stop sounding so damn cocky. And why are you asking questions like every 60 seconds? God you're annoying! Edit: Wait I saw how YOU'RE calling ME a closet Yankee fan? That's the funniest thing I've ever heard in my life. I'm a true Red Sox fan unlike you, you loser. You're the one who makes all Red Sox fans look bad and asks the most absurd questions in the world, with no purpose except mocking the Yankees for stupid reasons that don't even make sense. I hate the Yankees too but at least I don't criticize every single thing they do. They're the best team in baseball right now and you CANNOT deny that, no matter how much you want to. I give them credit for that and I respect their incredible dynasty, but I'm not a "closet Yankee fan".. that's so unbelievably stupid to say. I'm more of a Red Sox fan that you will ever be. Seriously I'm going on a rant here 'cause you're really pissing me the hell of.
  • It is down to two now, but you do have one important advantage over the Rangers. Your schedule is much easier than Texas. Your most difficult series is 3 game in LA. They have 6 games remaining with LA. You do have 3 games in NY, but by then the Yanks will probably have clinched or about to clinch best record, and will be resting starters, giving pitchers time off, and that stuff.
  • Thank goodness you Red Sox fans have a wild card to covet because the Yankees have you so far behind in their rear view mirrors it's your only hope.
  • You Sox fans are so gay. I feel really stupid that I cheered for you guys in 04. By the way the Rangers lead the season series. Douchebag.
  • Ugh. Why are you back? Stop giving good Sox fans bad names. It's 3 games. Anything can happen
  • shut the **** up right now. you are not a great baseball fan to have to criticize another team. yeah, you can laugh at the rangers being behind in the wc but don't shove it on me or Rangers.
  • The Rangers are still in it, anything can happen, and it ain't over until it is over, I beleive the Rangers still have a pretty good chance.
  • well atleast boston fans got some hope right?.... no chance at the yankees this year..
  • Still mad we beat you? Or is it the fact we have David Murphy and Gagne is gone?

  • I have an F and a D on my highschool transcript. The F is from a foreign language class I took in middle school that counted as a highschool credit. It was Chinese and I was a lazy idiot and at the time, I didn't really care so I just failed the class. Then came my freshman year, and I took Spanish instead and I made a decent grade in the class and I'm taking Spanish 2(I'm a sophomore) and that's what I'm going to use as my foreign language requirement. Although I still made bad/mediocre grades during my freshman year(B's and C's with one or two A's) I didn't slip down to a D grade until the last quarter. I'm doing better this year (no longer a lazy idiot, now I'm just an idiot) with all A's and a few B's, but today during school we got our transcripts and I realized how crappy my grades are, although because of this recent sophomore semester my GPA is a 3.02, I still have those D's and F. If I get a high grade on the SATs and continue pulling up my GPA do you think they'll accept me into a state school? I googled for little bit and saw that if you get an F on your transcript these days, you won't be able to get into any college, even just a community college. I'm freaking out quite a bit because of this, any advice?
  • Oh give me a break. My younger brother got into college and didn't always do so hot in school. So, he went to community college. No one has a problem getting into a community college. My brother turned things around and did well, and, now, he's attending a university. It will be fine. Take some classes at a community college first. It will save you money anyway. However, many state universities that are not very demanding will accept you. It depends on the state university. If you applied to the University of Texas at Austin, then forget it. If you applied to say the University of Texas at Dallas, you have a decent shot to get in. I am giving you an example. I don't know your cumulative GPA, but having a D or an F in school won't stop you. They look at your cumulative GPA. They understand people make mistakes. It happens!

  • Easy credit.The United States has gone from a nation of thrift to a debtor nation.Eliminate spending on anti social programs that are not needed would be a good start.Lower the tax base.(Can you say Texas?) and the country will prosper beyond our imagination. I'm not an Einsteen on economics but common sense says when people have real money in their pockets,and I'm not referring to plastic money either,the local economy thrives.
  • BG, The first problem is a global economy. Whatever happens here happens elsewhere. I would blame big bankers for this. Second to fix the problem in the US, government needs to be cut. It is not the job of the government to create jobs, but people and businesses. If taxes are cut, then jobs will be created.
  • The problem was George Bush, and the fact that he slashed taxes to the extent that the government can no longer operate. And the republicans in congress will not let the President raise taxes to pay for the massive debt we now have.
  • It's a "perfect storm" resulting from the confluence of several kinds of evil. The financial elite, justifying themselves with the right-wing rubric of "Greed Is Good," have become swindlers on a scale unprecedented in human history. They have invented ways to profit from huge amounts of "wealth" that are entirely unreal and exist only on paper. Politicians, even including so-called "moderate" Democrats, as well as the usual gang of Republicans, are on the payroll of these Wall Street swindlers and make laws to protect them. A small handful of well paid right-wing propagandists on AM radio have used angry rhetoric and vicious lies to promote a number of attitudes that are very bad for economic success, including racism, hatred of sexual minorities, religious fundamentalism, knee-jerk patriotism, and, most harmful of all, the notion that if you simply take enough money from the poor and give it to the rich, then maybe someday the rich will take pity on the poor and allow them to go to work and earn back some of the money that was taken from them. A surprising number of credulous people who believe the AM radio hate-mongers. A very large number of citizens who have become fat and utterly dependent on the government to support a middle-class, or even an upper-middle-class lifestyle that they feel they are "entitled" to. And many of the worst offenders in this group are those who are employed by the government itself. And among them are many whose government jobs are not only useless, but actually make the world a worse place to live in. Add to this mix a medical establishment that exists not to make people healthy but to generate obscene profits for doctors, hospitals, insurance companies, and the pharmaceutical cartel. Plus a legal system that exists not to establish and promote justice, but to generate obscene profits for lawyers, cops, prison guards, and, as always, the insurance companies. And a military establishment that has no interest in making the world a peaceful place, but only loves starting and continuing wars, wars, and more wars. The more expensive the better. And a corporate media which has no interest in relaying the most important news of the day or in making sober judgments about what is going on in the world, but is only interested in the obscene profits that come from sensationalizing everything and appealing to the appetites and the attitudes of their stupidest readers and viewers. And last, but certainly not least, a religious establishment which cares nothing about the real future of the human race, but instead encourages the global overpopulation that is rapidly making any kind of economic health impossible. But the church men couldn't care less about that. Because they know that the more idiots there are in the world, the more likely it is that many of them will be religious.

I called over and over begging for another car They said ok then said no when i got there so i got mad when the car stoped on me and i sold the car. They kept calling me but no answer then had some lady come to my door saying theyll have to file a report and if so ill get 3 to 5 years maybe 10 in jail can they do that. I would buy the car back but the ppl changed their number so I cant. What will happen once again im in texas.
  • it's likey a civil matter, not a criminal matter. cant' get blood out of a turnip. Collectors will make all kinds of threats. Don't be fooled. They pimped you, you pimped them. They might get a civil judgement for the unpaid amount but if you can't ain't got, what are they going to do? Probably ain't gonna help your credit rating, but dont worry about jail. Bill collectors are big fat liars.
  • im 15 years old i currently go to high school going to my sophomore year and my mother and i get food stamps and medicaid i wanted to know if i can get a social security job without jeopardizing our benefits (which we really need) atleast a minimum wage job (mcdonalds, burger king, etc.) my mother and i live alone without a father (divorced when i was 2) is there a limit to get a job for me without losing benefits for us?
  • As long as you are a student under17 your income is excluded for food stamps, Medicaid. You should be willing to work even if your welfare benefits would be reduced. it is supposed to be a hand up, not a hand out. ~ ~ Myth: Most welfare recipients are on benefits a short time. Let me make that clearer. At any one time 80% of any given caseload is chronic, repeat for one or more lifetimes. 80% of the money being spent at any one moment in time, is for the chronic, constantly needy, needy by choice, more than circumstances. The other 20% comes and goes on a regular basis, in one door, out the other, never to be seen again. At any moment in time, only 20% of the total, but over a long stretch (say five years), most of the ones helped were short timers, came and went, just like the myth says, most of the recipients on a short time,. . . . . . . but they only use 20% of the total funds available. 80% of the financial help available, goes to those ‘few bad apples.’ That does not sound like a good taxpayer investment to me. It seems to me the lion share of the money should be spent on the temporarily poor, the poor by circumstances, more than choice. http://www.urban.org/publications/900288...Today’s antipoverty safety net is dramatically different from the one in place two decades ago when welfare reform was enacted. Rather than a safety net primarily dependent on cash assistance programs, as is the common perception, the current system is highly reliant on social service programs funded by government and delivered through community-based nonprofits. Annual public and private expenditures for social service programs today exceed total federal outlays for cash assistance programs like welfare, food stamps, and the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).| https://ed.stanford.edu/events/out-reach...Cash Welfare Caseload. In December 2010, the number of families receiving TANF cash welfare was 1.9 million families, consisting of 4.7 million recipients, of which 3.5 million were children. The cash welfare caseload is very heterogeneous. The type of family historically thought of as the “typical” cash welfare family—one with an unemployed adult recipient—accounted for less than half of all families on the rolls in FY2008. Additionally, 15% of cash welfare families had an employed adult, while almost half of all families had no adult recipient. Child-only families include those with disabled adults receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI), adults who are nonparents (e.g., grandparents, aunts, uncles) caring for children, and families consisting of citizen children and ineligible noncitizen parents. http://www.nationalaglawcenter.org/asset...
  • Texas Benefits Food Stamps
  • Usually their is a cut off amount you can earn to the amount of something like $2000 before you do not qualify for food stamps and financial aid from Welfare.
  • There is neither "MedicAid" nor "Food Stamps". "im 15 years old" No, you are not.
  • I cared for my parents in their home, 24 hours a day for 10 years. I basically ran a nursing home out of their home for them so they didn't have to live in a facility. Yes, my care included everything a nursing home would provide including baths, assistance with elimination, meals and much more. I wasn't just the caregiver, I was also the accountant, the cook, the housekeeper, the laundry service, the chauffer (while they could still walk and even when they couldn't) and I was the entertainment. I was unpaid help. My father/mother promised me their small house in exchange for taking care of them. Not much, but the bare minimum so that I wasn't out on the street once they passed. Now, there is a medical lien on their credit record for a stay in the hospital. If the home is foreclosed on or even if it is not and it gets sold, how can I place a lien on the home that takes priority since mine supercedes all others in time of commencement? If I can place a lien, how would I go about doing so? FYI, this is in Texas.
  • Some states have a law that says the eldest son (or then eldest daughter) takes care of the parents when they are elderly. My mother had to do that and collected money from other family members for her parents upkeep. If you truly ran a nursing home out of their home you'd have needed a license so no business license or CNA or nursing license therefore you can't claim you ran a nursing home for them. I suspect that your parents raised you from age zero to age 18 wiping your nose, cleaning your clothes, washing your butt, taking care of your dental needs and medical needs and sitting up with you when you were ill, taking you to school, paying for all your needs and supporting you like putting a roof over your head, paying for your groceries, getting your school shots, and on and on and probably even paid for your shelter and food while you took care of them and now you are bold enough to bill them and try to get money out of their estate? it's a sad day. Yes the medical lien does take precedence and if anything is left then that would get distributed. Yours doesn't precede theirs as there was no lien by you, that is until you thought you wanted reimbursed. You can ask a lawyer, but then again if you pay him you might be frittering away money that "might" have gone to you. But that's the only answer since we don't know Texas law. I might also say that in these really tough economic times with 2012 to be worse than the past I suspect that house might sell for a lot lower than what it was purchased for. You might ask the attorney if you can live in the home until it's sold though. Of course you'd have to pay the utilities while you're there. find out what their will says.
  • I commend you for doing that for 10 years, it can be very stressful & exhausting not to mention the time it takes you away from your family. Often a lien can be satisfied for a lot less than the actual amount. Before they or anyone gets paid, a full inventory of assets & debits must be provided. Anything outside of probate like an insurance policy with a living beneficiary is exempt from collectors. As for getting paid for what you did over that time, is there any documents like you applying for guardianship which must be court approved. Are you dealing with any siblings? If you have legal documents prior to the lien that should supersede it, although as a guardian you would get paid during that time & not bill the estate at a later date. Each state has different estate laws, i handled 4 in NJ, no law or legal experience. All was learned trough hands on experience. Feel free to email if you think i can help, i don't require any sensitive info at all. Mainly i have helped people with helping them know what to do & whats required to deal with probate. The last one i did took 12 months to start & complete, the average time in NJ is 18-24 months.
  • You don't have a lien as you don't have any recognized right to any of their funds. You were not a business and you have no priority. The lien will be paid from the estate prior to your inheriting anything.
  • Check with an attorney, but I think that your lien can only take first place if it was filed first.
  • Okay, recently I've started a new medicine for anxiety that really disrupts my ability to focus. Also, I've just relocated with my family from South Texas to Washington State-A big transition. I am a Freshman in high school, but all of my classes are either 9th grade Honors, or 10th grade honors. I've always had the problem of not being able to focus in class, yet I make REALLY good grades-I've maintained a solid 4.0 GPA since 6th grade! I'm a big over-achiever, and sometimes that causes my downfall. Also, I get really depressed...You know, when I recieve a bad grade in school. I just switched from Pre-AP World Geography to Honors World History. I'm the only 9th grader to EVER take that class, and I feel as though I'm not living up to my full expectations. I was lucky to get into most of my classes, and now I'm getting Bs in some of them. I feel it is my inability to focus on my school work that really "messes me up". Any advice on how I can fix this? I want to graduate as a Junior, because I only need 10.5 credits (I get 6 per year). I just want to do good so I can show that I AM able to do this. That age doesn't matter, but mentality does. I feel like I have something to prove to my new teachers and peers...Please, help me. I don't want to get depressed again, but everytime my teachers pull me in the hall, I just want to cry because I'm afraid it might be bad. This may sound ridiculious, like I'm an emotionally unstable teenager who filled her plate with too much. But that isn't true. I just need some advice, other than my parents...Thanks again. :)
  • We are our own worst enemies at times. That you have such high expectations of yourself is something more people should have. But you can't forget you're human. Also, you're taking much harder classes. So that you're getting Bs instead of As might show that you're in the right classes because they're challenging you the way someone of your calibur needs challenged. It doesn't mean you've failed or disappointed everyone. I think you'd be surprised at how well your teachers think you're doing compared to your opinion of your performance. Two things I'd suggest. First, you need to regularly see a counselor to discuss, at the very least, your performance in school and your expectations of yourself. I think it would do you good to get another's perspective. Also, you need tools to help you deal with the pressures of school, the pressures from yourself and how to deal with those stressors that cause you depression. Second, if procrastination is your issue (and it doesn't seem to be), approach everything as a project. Write down what needs to be done. Find out when you're most productive, and do the thing you like the least when you're fresh and able to concentrate. Save those things that are less stressful or more fun for when you're more tired or distracted. That way there's less procrastination and less stress on you. When you're proactively fixing a problem, you feel more in control and more confident. Good luck!
  • sounds like you're being a teenager with mood swings and anxiety etc etc which make the teen years hell sometimes. Plus you answered the question yourself. You have made some big transitions and you're not a big fish in a small pond anymore, but smaller in a bigger pond. No matter what you do there will always be people who do it better than you do. Make your own goals and try not to look at what others are doing. Physical exercise can help alleviate stress as well. Relax it only gets better!
  • The payoff you obtain for procrastinating is maximum in all likelihood explanation why you finally end up repeating the development. Procrastinators placed off initiatives till the very final achieveable 2nd with the aid of fact, at that l a s t 2nd, there's a burst of capability from adrenaline and neurotransmitters released consistent with the extreme tension the recommendations is under. Procrastinators get a organic intense, a organic euphoria, via waiting till there is not extra time to anticipate polishing off the activity, if he/she needs to be triumphant. Many procrastinators are widespread for asserting, "I do my maximum suitable artwork under pressure." this is actual not the fact, besides the fact that it justifies the waiting as a worth reason. the fact which you're feeling so drained and could extremely not do the artwork suited away is yet another ingredient. in case you're drained for all time, this is which you unknowingly wait for the push on the final minute for the reason which you desire a advance out of the common each and every day fatigue. i've got found out the problematical way that early and secure training actual prevents the each and every day fatigue to a pair quantity....i'm getting a "2nd wind," a clean burst of capability with the aid of fact i'm tackling something this is problematical and that i understand i'm going to triumph over the activity. Now THAT brings an exceedingly good feeling....and that's lots extra suited than the final-minute under pressure-out capability develop and next capability crash. (ok, Saccade, be superb!) Consistency is what your physique needs, what your recommendations needs, and what you as somebody ought to locate get away from the ever-recent psychological fatigue.
  • If one does not take up any assignment or task at all, there is no question procrastinating. If we are not interested, we should not start any venture and try later to procrastinate it. Once started, we should try to complete.

  • I have no insurance and i need a lot of minor dental work and a some seriously major dental work done. the dental school will charge a little bit less but they want it all up front which i cant do. and no one around here will take payment plans and if I do not get some help I wont be able to chew by my 25birthday in a few months. so please if any one knows of a grant to help a charity who will help or a dentist who does probono work or a Houston (and or surrounding areas) dentist who would even agree to take small payments over a period of time i need some kind of help and quick. please no rude comments since i was born i have had no insurance and did all i could to take great care of my teeth but i have received bad teeth any ways so pelase no oh hey sugar rots you teeth or its your own fault comment liek i siad i did the best i could and took great care of my teeth.

  • This just happened before Christmas. I need a raise because I have bad credit and I need to get a LCD TV for my family for Christmas. I said, you have been late three times this week and your asking me for a raise, you should be asking to keep your job. He took the next day off and I fired him the following Monday.
  • I think it has to be related to 'time' on the job . . .. aka 'tenure' . But most who say that have only been on the job for 2, 3, 4, months . I preach production/sales and don't care if an employee works 5hrs. per day or 10 . Production is all that matters . Yet. . .. . .well you know the drill . They waltz in, unprepared, and ask in an unprofessional manner . Their previous 'work' experience has taught them that being present is somehow a 'value' to an employer . Not here , not in our world !! EDIT*** - I got to thinking on this and I think another interesting question would be -- " How many times has an unproductive disgruntled employee 'thought' that they could sue you " ? . .. . .I've had the opportunity to hear that several times (almost always over the phone though, not in person) and through their entire rant I always suggest that we immediately stop wasting time, get off the phone, and then they'll have more time to talk with their fantasy 'lawyer' ! -- Never once, never, has any 'lawyer' made a follow-up call .
  • I always appreciate I need the money. At one point I had one of my staff working in one of my retail locations request a raise for increase in work obligations because I had added in a new rack of inventory. To make it even more entertaining it was a 25% raise. I had another employee again in one of my retail stores request a raise becuase he "wasn't making enough money to survive" However this is also an employee who only worked 15 hours per week, and declined to work any further hours despite the fact that this was his only job, and did not have any further obligations and commitment. The kicker is we pay well for retail. WE are currently paying $5 above minimum wage. So in all fairness our employees are not hard done by.
  • A guy walked in and said they guy who sells him weed has raised the price and that he needed to earn $20.00 more each week to afford his habit . I told him I would sell him his weed from now on and get back to work and do not bother me again about more money .
  • This attitude is why income tax cuts don`t work, the employer already knows the employee will work for 15k year so why give a raise if they just got more money from the tax cut.
  • "I need the money." That's the funniest one. It never fails to get loud laughs when I mention it to the other corporate officers in the executive's washroom. Don't these idiots know that they're just putting themselves at the top of the list of employees to be laid off the next time cutbacks happen?

  • My wife's sister just got out of a relationship and the breakup is not going so well. My wife's sister (Ann lets call her) was in a same-sex relationship for three years with (Jill). My question is how does Ann go about retrieving her personal property if Jill is refusing to give it "all" to her. All of Ann's belongings are at Jill's house. No one has receipts, except for Jill, because during the course of a 3 year relationship items for Ann and Jill was purchased on a credit card, which is owned by Jill. Both contributed to credit card payments during the relationship and all the items are paid off. Ann and Jill never got married because our state does not condone same sex marriages. So now that you know the situation how would Ann go about retrieving her property from Jill's house? What types of departments and/or organizations would Ann need to contact if Jill is not co-operating on returning Ann's property? Please post relevant information. I will be selecting a best answer.
  • Well that really stinks. That is part of the issue when you live with people. Anything can happen. If she doesn't have anything documented in her name such as a lease or phone bill proving that she lived there I'm not sure what she can do. Maybe just talk with Jill and say you can be there. Let me in to get some of my stuff. If Jill wants to be petty and keep stuff they bought together then oh well. Ann has learned a very valuable lesson not to do that again. My personal opinion would be to let it all go. Get her clothes and personal stuff but let furniture, tvs, cds etc go. They are not worth the pain. She should start fresh with new stuff. I'm in Texas too.
  • Go to court or get a judge's order. Two adults should be able to act like adults for the short time it takes to retrieve personal property. Jill may have too much proof for Ann to get anything since her credit card paid for everything. I guess it is a blessing that they did not get married. I got a judge's order once to get a personal item my cousin had removed from my grandfather's house after his death. I was escorted to her house by a sheriff's deputy and she handed the item over
  • First of all is both of there names on the lease? If so all Ann has to do is call the police and asked to be police escorted to the house and she can get anything that belongs to her. Have Ann also bring maybe you as a man back up. If Jill is smart she won't refuse the cops and start anything with them there...if she does...she will be arrested. If her name isn't on the lease....yikes Ann is gonna get screwed ! Ann needs to pull up any and all cancelled checks to prove she helped pay for things. Sounds like we will be seeing them on Judge Judge...lol
  • Have a police officer meet her at the house. They will stand at the door until she gets everything out.
  • I'm a senior applying there and want to get into this school so bad. I have a 3.0 gpa exactly. My sat scores are 1620. I took dual enrollment classes all threw high school and have 60 college credits right now. I am in Ecology club, Media club, Yearbook, and attend student council meetings(I don't know if that even counts it just means I'm an "honorary member" they say), I also have volunteered a lot. I was an avid tutor at one point too. I'm also a migrant. I'm the first in my close family to go to college. Also I'm about top 50 percent in my school. I am kind of ashamed of everything, because I know it's not that good. I really don't know what they take into consideration, I am terrified to death though of not getting in. Please give me input.
  • Don't be so down on yourself. Your scores look pretty good and your extra curricular activities are outstanding. I think you have a very good chance. I would definitely visit the website and/or call the admissions office and talk to them about it.
  • I think you'll get in. The middle 50% SAT score is a 1600 and your 20 over that. The class rank is just a little lower. If i had to say yes or no, it would probably be a yes.
  • My sister is in a bad relationship (with her husband), the guy is an alcoholic. So she left the him, but the hadn't officially divorced. Now she has spent around 8 grand trying to serve him and get him to go to court. He hasn't gone and now we don't even think his attorney knows where he is. The worse part is that since they are still linked in their records and everything, he has ruined her credit in every way he can, and wrecked her insurance policy. Is there a way that she can divorce him without needing him to sign somthing?
  • depends where you are at. why did she spend so much on him? on most cases they can get a default marriage that the other party doesn't have to be there i am surprised her lawyer did not tell her about it. call the credit places, along with the credit cards and let them know the day he moved out and that she is not responsible for any of these charges that he has made. then take him to court, even though he doesn't show she can sue him for damages.
  • Your sister does not need him to sign anything to get a divorce. If he has an attorney why is your sister having a problem serving him. If your sister has spent 8 grands, I will like to think that some of this money went to an attorney. Her attorney wiil know what to do to get a default judgment.
  • If purely all Christians were worrying, loving, straightforward and beautiful difficult operating people. regrettably their no longer, so at the same time as someone marries a pig of a guy or woman who believes their significant different change into placed in this earth to be manage like a slave then divorce.....divorce......divorce.

  • I have a question about copyrighting an Access database. I created about ninety percent of the database (essentially a customized contact manager) but I did use a small part that I got from a Microsoft template Does anyone know how this section affects my ability to copyright the rest of the database? My only frame of reference is when I wrote academic papers in college. I have never written a software program before. My assumption is that I would simply give credit to Microsoft for that section of their template that I used. Is that correct? If not I suppose I could backward engineer the section and build my own. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks, Jerry Dallas Texas
  • If worse comes to worse you could always e-mail microsoft and ask them for permission to used that section from their template. If they say, save the e-mail for proof later on, and if they say no then you would have to build your own. sorry i could not give better help.
  • Here's the brief story - i was stupid. My father, whose credit was horrible, talked me into getting a business in my name at the age of 19 for himself. I was stupid and did not check on anything he was doing and he ran the business into the ground leaving me with a $62,000 judgment from February 2002. I am in the process of trying to buy a home; I have money to put down and a good credit score but this judgment is holding me back. To make matters worse, the company that filed the judgment against me is out of business. What can I do??
  • You can get that cleared up but will need to hire an attorney to do it. Basically, the attorney goes back to the court and argues that the judgment is satisfied since it is now impossible to pay the company. However, there may be an issue here if the company declared bankruptcy. If that is the case, then your debt is now an asset of the bankruptcy estate and the bankruptcy trustee can still hold you to it. Either way, you need to talk to an attorney. And since you're talking about $62,000, I'd say that's worth of few hundred to get it cleared up, wouldn't you?
  • Out of business means someone somewhere has been assigned it's assets. I'd start with the state corporation comission, and/or the county clerk's office. If the company is gone, with no successor, you'll need a court order to release it probably.
  • first of all i live in central texas, 2004 i made a deal with a friend, she had bad credit and needed a vehicle and she had an empty lot of land in which she owed $2000. So we decided to trade, we made it legal, and according to the contract we signed, i would give her a truck i owned and she would finish paying off the lot by 2007 at which point she would give me a clear title for the land. its now 2012, and she has neglected to finish paying off the land, im tired of waiting, im wondering what my legal options are for getting the title to the land because i am ready to begin building on it.
  • It is too late. The SOL has passed. You will not be able to gain title at this point.
  • You will have to sue your friend to perform on the contract or to seek in kind damages (cash to resolve the debt owed). It seems pretty obvious that your friend never held title to the property and at best had a land contract with another owner that is now likely void.
  • Worst thing about friends is when money and property are involved...they tend to not be friends anymore. It may cost you more than what you paid for the property to seek legal justice unfortunately. I would suggest you seek some legal advice. Possibly small claims court may be able to help, or a paralegal may give you advice. Good luck, but it doesn't sound good.
  • in case you have been nonetheless legally married on the time of the acquisition then its probably you have rights to the valuables. uncomplicated regulation marriage in many cases occurs after YEARS of being mutually, and no, he ought to not evaluate uncomplicated regulation marriage considering you and your spouse have been nonetheless legally married. you ought to get a criminal expert. instruct him the date of the acquisition, and the date of your divorce. TX has a 60 day waiting era till the divorce is very final (60 days when you filed) so i'm uncertain how that performs into this. yet you're nonetheless legally married till the day you get the appropriate divorce decree. look into it!

  • Not usually given much credit for his Presidency, since the "Panic of 1837" (worst depression in the nation's history to that point) hit just after he entered office, and neither he nor his opponents knew quite what to do about it. But. . . - he DID prevent the annexation of Texas Southerners were pushing for, so helping at least delay worsening North-South tensions over slavery and war with Mexico - he quieted the tense situation with Britain over the Maine-Canada border, avoiding war (and laying the groundwork for the Webster-Ashburton Treaty finally worked out during the next administration [1842]) - he finally succeeded in gaining approval for an "independent treasury" system that seemed to have helped somewhat in the gradual economic recovery
  • Okay so basically I am falling hard on my behind in HS. My Freshman year I obtained a GPA of 3.60 and by end of Sophomore year it was around 3.4 -something. Well now I'm not doing so well for the first half of my a junior year, I am currently getting all C's and a D (FML) Im dropping the D class (Anatomy and Physiology) because I don't have the time for it and raising all of my C's - half of them are B's now. I calculated my first quarter grades and the GPA is like a 2.066 or w/e. if I continue to work on my grades and finish my Junior year with Mostly B's will it affect my GPA dramatically? And what are the chances of colleges looking at my GPA and rank. And do you know any colleges that will accept me with a clean slate? I'll really like to go to Texas, or Virginia. I really don't want to go to a community college either D:
  • It's not like I thought HS was going to be easier each year, I just move constantly ( this is my fourth school right now) and my credits get messed up or I have to advance a semester or something and it's really hard to do and balance my other classes at the same time but Im not trying to blame my constant migration on my poor academic performance. It's just a factor of my failure.
  • One bad semester won't kill your chances for a university. If you can get high grades this semester, you may be able to convince admissions offices that the previous semester was an aberration due to frequent moves. You are likely to be able to get into a good university, but UT-Austin and UVA are both notorious for having in-state bias and taking the cream of the crop. Unless you are a Texan or a Virginian, you don't have much of a chance. See list below for some very good colleges that are less selective than UT-Austin and UVA.
  • What's "particularly low?" Sounds such as you wish to visit a gigantic university; why? You have got to ask your self "why" on many questions earlier than achieving a determination. Attempting to learn among the traces, you can also wish to significantly do not forget a small tuition & no longer always the regional Junior College. One that's equipped to supply you extra private awareness & help. Perhaps it is going to no longer be as academically identified however it is going to minimize your risk of flunking out. You can constantly switch after bettering your GPA. Universities view College grades bigger than your HS efficiency. Why the low GPA? Didn't you're employed in your abilities in HS? Or did not the categories curiosity you? Are you in CA now? Many small faculties aggressively seem for a various pupil combine. Heck, a few waive institution if you are from a state NOT adjacent theirs!
  • 2.06 is not going to get you into a university. The good news though is that all is not lost. If you can get up to a 3.0 you will still have plenty of choices. If school will let you with the low gpa, try to get into as many honors classes as you can, and AP, although school may not allow that. Colleges want to see steady effort, but also that you challenged yourself. And if worse comes to worst, there is nothing wrong with spending a year at community college and getting decent grades there. Lots of people are choosing to do it simply as a cost saving device, or to boost their likelihood of being accepted to a 4 year school.
  • No college for you :'( your lucky you even graduated lol
  • I live in San Antonio, Texas. I get $700 a month (SSI dissability). I have $1,500 saved up. My buget is from $400 - $550 for rent. I have bad credit (591). Please don't say to get section 8 or other similar housing. Ive been on the waiting list for a year and i cannot bear to live with my mother anymore. I dont know where to even start. Ive searched onlin but the info is poor. Does any body know of an app or website where i can get good info on apartments?
  • If you get $700 a month then the rent you pay should only be $245 a month. Without additional income you can't get an apartment. Just because you say what your budget is, well that's not the way a landlord figures it. Section 8 is what people do because it pays part of the rent so they can survive. But Section 8 also has apartments in very poor areas. Rent.com is a place to look for apartments, I'd suggest the suburbs but you'd need to have a car. You didn't say if you're living at home now or with other family. Ok so you're disabled so contact the Department of Elder Affairs in your county and see if they can give you any suggestions. Some apartments do take Section 8 and they do have openings but you'd have to approach the landlord where you want to rent and ask if they take Section 8 and if they can work with you. Then see if that fits into your budget of spending $245 a month. Remember that yearly rent increases by $25 a month, so don't leave where you are now unless your income will continue to increase appropriately or you'll get stuck. Maybe at some point you can find someone you get along with well and then rent with them (preferably a relative or old school chum) and share costs.
  • LL's usually want to see 3x the rent for income, so the most you would qualify for is $235 per month in rent. You probably should be looking to rent a room in a private residence.
  • Depending on your age and the nature of your disability, you MIGHT qualify to rent a unit in privately subsidized developments run by non-profit organizations. Check organizations with such titles as Catholic Charities or Lutheran Family Services.
  • Just went on realtor . com and put in San Antonio and rentals and found 1 bdrm from $395 to $540 a month in San Antonio which you said is in your budget
  • Theres a good search site I used when I got my apartment out in stone oak pretty good search portal with pictures numbers addresses and it locates it on the map constantly updated. ill leave it in my source box san antonio is too hot you should move to cali lol
  • You should get a job instead of living off SSI. If you live with your mother, why are you getting social security benefits? If you are mentally disabled you should live in a group home. Without a job you dont earn enough to pay rent and buy food and everything else.
  • My future husband is going to (try to) join the air force after he's done with his Gen Eds. I encouraged him a lot to join, I think he'd do very well at it. He is so darn smart I can't see him not getting in. Does he have worse chances of getting in if his parents (when he was a baby still) used his information to steal/not pay owed money/ bad credit and stuff? It shows on his record that he did it, when he wasn't even able to walk yet... but I dunno if it shows the age it all happened... so would it affect it? Also, we're moving to Texas whether he gets in or not, whether I get accepted to a college there or not. So do you think if he DID get in, he would go down South to the Gulf? (Or wherever that base is... not 100% sure) Can I follow him wherever he is put, even though we're not fiances or married? Do you think it's a good idea? And the ultimate question... what are his chances of dying? Even though I encourage him a lot, I still fear his death - I know it's a big sacrifice on his part to do it, so I'm behind him the entire way... but if he's gone I don't know what I'll do. I'm starting to feel torn between not wanting him to go and encouraging him. Any other advice for him (or me) is so appreciated... also, 5 stars best answer if that helps. ;) haha.
  • It would have to be investigated, you go to Texas for basic but you can't see him then. Depending how long tech school is... you can visit during long tech schools. Chances of being killed are not high unless you are combat arms (fighting jobs) Pararescue, Security Forces, Chaplins asst. EOD
  • I used to be within the Navy, now not the Air drive, however so far as this is going is cannot topic. First, for those who are not able to get a list of the surgical procedure, do not fear. Just say it used to be from while he used to be a little one and he does not realize for certain how he bought it. A stretch of the reality, however nonetheless now not a whole lie. I had a foul head/mind harm as a little one, my mother would by no means get the documents from the sanatorium so I simply by no means acknowledged it and had no disorders concerning it. Which used to be variety of unusual being I had a VERY visible scar at the most sensible of my head. Second, in case your fiance is not going for a DOD clearance of any variety, he wouldn't have a main issue. Just furnish what he can. If he's going for a clearance, he regularly would possibly not get greater than a Confidential clearance. I had a mystery clearance, and so they now not handiest run your heritage assess (which they do regardless if you are getting a clearance or now not), however your loved ones's and assess with references of individuals that realize you (i.e. lecturers, co-employees, peers, loved ones...). I knew a man who could not get his Top Secret clearance simply seeing that his spouse used to be born from yet another nation (I feel China) despite the fact that he used to be born and raised in America. I feel Mexico or Canada would not be main issue. I desire this is helping.
  • Eh. I know more about the Navy and Marine Corps than the AF, but I`ll just tell you, don`t worry about him dying. The Air Force is extremely rarely in combat nowadays. And sure, you can follow him, but they`ll move you if you`re married. And once he`s enlisted, he nor you has any say whatsoever in where he lives.
  • The US military is 100% unpredictable on where they will put him. Deployments and permanent changes of station will come up with little notice to other countries. Dream sheets are a crock, they don't work.
  • Please see the link....
  • Just to be clear about something I'm about to turn 20. I know it's a tough business. I'm prepped for failure. Although I never look at anything as failure. And FYI I'm not desperate to get into New Moon. It's just something that I thought would be great. My goal is for the industry in general. Any film. Any job. Not just New Moon.
  • Unfortunately slim to none. Dead serious about being an actress and being desperate to get into New Moon are two very, very different things. If you research the actors in Twilight on IMDB you will see that they all have an extensive list of credits, in other words, they've been pounding the pavement and paying their dues in Los Angeles for years. In order to pursue this industry you would have to leave South Texas with one or both of your parents and move to Los Angeles. Once there it'd be acting classes and all the other things that go along with this business. It is not an easy industry and the failure rate is high. In the meantime, join your schools drama department or theater club. That is where the seriousness of being an actress begins.
  • Its true that theatre acting is tougher cos you rely on improv should you make mistakes or anything-- cos theres no "second take" but you do have to realize that acting on stage and film is VERY different. On stage, youd have to exaggerate and make your movements "bigger" as you are trying to connect to your audience from across the theatre... but can you imagine acting like that on film?? That would be called over acting. Unless you are a natural, you'd have to learn proper techniques and methods to translate well into the camera. Also, an agent helps you get an audition but does not guarantee your spot on the cast. Anyway, if you want it badly then Id say go for it! Who am I to say that you have no chances? Youll never know if youre what the casting directors are looking for unless you try. So goodluck! ;)
  • You don't need an agent until you've had a lot of experience and are totally serious about acting. Maybe you don't have enough background to take you straight to a movie..usually people you know work their way up but some directors are looking to cast fresh faces :) GOOD LUCK!
  • I would say if you want it, go for it. but I'm not really sure how to go for it. I love to act as well but have only done theater productions through my school, so I don't know how the film deal goes (well I know but no in enough detail to help out.) Maybe you could look up to casting director for the film and write a letter/e-mail, or/and do the same thing with the director. Idk but if you really want it, give it a try.
  • Well, i'm not sure. I heard you can submit headshots and resumes to deborah aquila, not sure if this is true.
  • I am 17 years old. i want to move out of my house, and i have parental permission. is it legal? i am a Senior in high school, but i take my classes at the local college, getting both college and high school credit. and i finish all classes by noon. i make about 1,200 a month. with two stedy jobs. the apartment would cost me 300 a month. Can i legally move out, and also do u think i can make it for a year before i go off to college at NYU. : )
  • What's wrong with your parents? Stay there and save money for college. You will need to pay rent if you move out. That adds up fast. You are gonna need money. College is so expensive. One more year is not that bad.
  • I want to be home schooled for my senior year.I know,it sounds crazy cause you do everything senior year but honestly I could care less.There is so much drama in my school that I can't deal with,I can't transfer to another school because I'm behind on some of my work.My parents wont be able to home school me and my siblings wont either.I know you can get tutors or online classes.Does anyone know any good websites on more information on that?Also,what is a way to ease in and ask my parents about this...?There was a time when they said that home school would probably be the best option but then we found a school I could get in so that passed.But now I REALLY want to be home schooled,so how can I ask?If you have anymore tips on this it would be very helpful,thanks!
  • Depends on where you live, I was home schooled in Texas for 5 years. If your parents can't teach you, that's not an issue. I've never done online courses, but in my opinion, a classroom setting is preferable. I had classes with anywhere from 6-12 kids, once a week (some places do twice), for about an hour, or hour and a half each class. College-style courses, pick and choose what classes you want to take, each class usually has a fee, ect. Awesome learning environment, wouldn't suggest it unless you are really focused on learning, and doing the material. If you aren't getting schoolwork done because of social aspects, such as bullying or distractions, or other kids dragging you down, then I suggest it. It's a great way to learn, but if you blow it off or skip class, it'll be a lot worse. Senior year may cause complications for college, if you plan on going, but usually not. It's mostly duel-credit courses and such that make for complications. Duel enrollment into a community college while a senior is an amazing way to get the feel for college, get some college credits out of the way, and save a lot of time, so i've heard. In any case, hope i've helped, and good luck.
  • One of the biggest determinants of a successful homeschool career - DISCIPLINE. You should share with your parents your intentions to stay focused and on point to get the job done. Hopefully your behavior over the last year or so can verify that. Also, take time to analyze the good, the bad, and the ugly - that way, when they bring up negative points, you will have at least already thought it through. Once you open the door with them, you really want to be very open about it all, because it should be a family decision that gets support from all who are affected. Good Luck!

  • You should be okay. Here are their exact requirements: http://admissions.tamu.edu/freshmen/gettingin/waysAdmitted/academic.aspx
  • Yes, I think u will get accepted
  • Ebay is made up of individual sellers who have their own system of doing things. Did you tell your seller that you needed the game by a certain date? Did the seller tell you what their shipping schedule is? Some sellers only ship one day per week. Did they state how they would be shipping the item? If you only paid for parcel post you may be waiting a couple of weeks even if your seller shipped the same day. I would say IF your seller shipped immediately, and IF they shipped via Priority Mail, you should get it by Friday. It's still not guaranteed, the USPS will not guarantee Priority shipping by a certain date, but it's a good bet. Otherwise, I doubt it. And if you did not work out the details with your seller ahead of time, it is not their fault. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news ... but at least you know for next time. I hope you get your game on time.
  • The shipping isnt up to ebay nor is it a norm, the shipping is up to the seller you purchased the product from. If you go in to your ebay you can send them an email and ask.
  • I live in Texas and I found someone who wants to and qualifies to take over my lease. Is that possible and do I get bad credit? Also will I loose my security deposit? I went into the office to ask them all these questions but manager was off all weekend. The temp girl said that I might have to pay to get out of it like two months rent. Well I only have four months left on my lease so that wouldn't make sense?!?!?! Also wh ywould I have to pay if someone is taking over??? She said she did not really know. Anyways I'm moving bac khome and would hate to pay for something I won't be living in. Any inforamtion or suggestions would help. I know some apartments are money hungry!!!!!
  • Since most leases do not allow subletting, you may have to pay a termination fee/reletting fee. Has nothing to do with being "money hungry"....just the law for your state.
  • READ your lease--carefully--BEFORE talking with LL What you are suggesting is called a sublet Sometimes LLs permit subletting after approving new tenant, but your security deposit is held until end of lease and apartment is examined for damage. . . .you remain liable for apartment Sometimes LLs permit you to find a replacement tenant, and sign a new lease with new tenant In such situations, you should bet your security deposit back if LL loses no rent and gets tenant for a year--longer than your lease would extend All of this is negotiable with LL, so prepare yourself. . .and don't just accept the normal 2 months rent for breaking lease business if you have found a sublessor
  • It all depends on your landlord and the conditions of your lease.
  • I have large debts and a very low income (due to various things that have went wrong in my life in the past year) and I have no money to file bankruptcy. I hear it costs 500 dollars which is what my rent costs and I have to choose rent over legal fees. I have nothing to sell to make money and work a job with a different schedule every week and also a very strict emloyer who goes on firing sprees all the time. It is not a bad job in the sense that I do make more than minimum wage so I can't afford to lose it. I have limited transportation which limits where I can get to as many businesses in my city are in areas with no bus service and I can't take off or be late for work under any circumstances. Is there any place to get free assistance and that useless credit counseling thing that is required? I know it is required although I do not believe in conselours of any type.
  • Try the law schools in your area. One of them may have a bankruptcy clinic or legal aid practice clinic that might help you. Also call the local bar association, as it may have lists of lawyers who provide legal aid at reduced rates to those who qualify.
  • I realize it will hurt my credit pretty bad, despite being voluntary. I'm aware that there's no difference between voluntary and involuntary in the eyes of the credit agencies. Can the finance company sue me? Can they garnish my wages? I just can't stomach paying $800 a month between a car payment, insurance, and FUEL for a car that's not that nice ('03 Mazda Protege). I think I'm just gonna buy a scooter.
  • Well it would depend on the debt laws of your state. they can sue you in almost every state. BUt enforcing the judgment is where the state laws usually come into play. for example in Texas they can sue you but they have a difficult time gettin money because they cant garnish your wages, and they cant lien on your house. look up the state debt collections act you could also look into the fair debts collection practices act, it is a federal act telling you what is and is not legal for creditors to do to try to collect your debts. this information is something that everyone should know anyhow! Good luck
  • Yikes! That's a big payment. If they won't refinance and lower your payment, and you do decide to turn it in, they'll sell the car, and charge you the difference between what was owed and the sale price. This can also be negotiated down; they'd rather get some money than no money. You just have to be persistant.
  • My brother voluntarily let his car go back. It didn't hurt him much until he got ready to buy his house. They wanted nearly $3000 paid off on the repossesion before he could buy the house.

  • Yeah but why would you want to go there? Especially next year. Their football program will be the worst it has ever been since it's creation.
  • i think of you're exceedingly rounded student. i admire your extensive participation in student government which proves which you have the management skill that's predicted upon from an officer. attempt to place a splash greater attempt on your lecturers. attempt to push your self to be interior the real 10% of your classification in the past you graduate. remember, getting common on your needed college and getting common for an NROTC scholarship are 2 separate techniques. as an occasion, you may get common right into a school, yet no longer chosen for an NROTC scholarship and vice versa.
  • Why do people act like ethnic gangs in LA are SO horrible but they glorify movies like The Godfather,Scarface,The Public Enemy, and Goodfellas? Also, why do the real Mafia gets glorified but the gangs don't? Boyz N The Hood never gets enough credit as The Godfather. On AFI's top 100 movies: #2 The Godfather, #32 The Godfather Part II, while movies about minorites as gangs don't even make the cut. Italians are just another kind of white.
  • Both are bad But you are correct people tend to put more infenses on gangs than mafia because mafia consist mostly of people that are not black Mafia = gang to me just a different name Notice that mafia's tend to have more money than gangs as well The Bush administration was said to be the "Texas Mafia"
  • Gangs usually contain thugs and drug addicts who target innocent people and commit crimes openly and ruthlessly. In comparison to larger organized crime families, they also have a much greater propensity for violence. For example, it is a very rare occasion when an 'outsider' is killed by the mafia. This is specifically illustrated by Bugsy Siegel who once remarked "We only kill each other" Also, the mafia encompasses charming, charismatic and well dressed figures which is practically the polar opposite of many gang members. With all the above being said, I do not admire nor respect the mafia.
  • Gangs are usually low lives, their clothing can consist of wearing some baggy hip hop clothes and bandannas or a no shirt baggy jeans clothing. Also gangs usually go hard after crimes like raping women and smacking little kids, basically small scale low life stuff. The Mafia are no saints but they have some class at least. You don't see Mafia members kill and rape females just for their pleasure. You usually see Mafia members drowning and killing grown men who have made a mistake. Also, all the mafia really wants is money, that is ALL they want. Also see the nice clothes they have on, like suits and what not. Ethnic gangs usually want recognition and a lot of them kill people based on what the other person is wearing or what race he is (Mexican gangs in LA killing Black males for example). Mafia people actually try to talk out peace and if stuff goes wrong they kill. So thats the reason people condemn gangs.
  • Do you realize the war the US and Italy has been at with the Mafia/Mob for a century and more? Read up on your history. The Mafia is not accepted, no one said it was.
  • wow, youre stupid. most of these movies were made in the 70s and 80s, when the mafia wasnt as stong and as much of a problem for the country. italian americans hate the image these movies give us. once gangs are all done and over with, theyll be movies that will go down in history as well. i put money on that. but right now, gangs are still a huge issue for the country and more violent towards innocent people as ever, vs the mafia who usually just mingled with other mafia members. you need to stop being ignorant.
  • Clearly it's cuz your black.
  • LEI! LEI! LEI! LEI! LEI! LEI! MAFIA IS ORGANIZED! DIE INFIDEL!
  • If someone owes 26k to a bank for an unsecured line of credit, and they end up in court, will they go to small claims court? If so, in the state of NC, they have a max of 5k that can be sued for in small claims. So does that mean if a judgment is filed, that is the max the bank could get? This is given that the person has no assets and all of their "stuff" is exempted right? Just making sense of all of this.
  • Well the bad news is if the debt exceeds the limits of the small claims court which in your case it does, then they (the creditor) will seek legal action in a regular court of law. Now for the GOOD news, North Carolina prohibits wage garnishment for debts (excluding government services and taxes) but they can seek seizure of bank accounts or certain property you may own (autos above a specified value that you own and any property in excess of a specified size) but if you have no assets, then there is nothing much they can do except sit and wait. A judgment in texas is good for 10 years. Hope this helps answer your question
  • That amount of money isn't a small claims case. If they feel like it's worth the bother, they'd have to sue in regular court. But when there is a suit in regular court, there's a lot more procedure involved than in small claims court. And if they use small claims, you're right, they can't sue for more than 5k.
  • If the claim is for more than the limit in small claims, they lender will go through the regular court system and sue for the entire amount. There is no law forcing anyone to go through small claims, small claims is there for the convenience of the parties involved in the suit.
  • I figure since it's not a real license, and just a learners permit it isn't that bad right? I went to the movies, and now I can't find it anywhere in my purse or my wallet. I don't think anyone stole it, I think that somehow I just lost it. I'll call the movie theater tomorrow but I don't think they'll have it. Is this a big deal, or can I just get a new one later? And no one can like steal my Identityty with a leaners permit, right?
  • Learn to ride a bike . . . or you can go the the DMV and let them know it was lost. You can have it replaced. Ask them about your question of identity theft. They should be able to give you an educated answer. My husband is a victim of identity theft. You have good reason to be worried. A police officer was told to take him in for deportation!!! Luckily, the cop knew my husband was born and raised in Texas. You can call the three crediting agencies so they can put a warning on your credit.
  • It wouldn't be a bad idea to send those statistics to their Reps--and say this is good-look at the results. And to our Reps who are dragging their tails. I think I will do that. And demand protection. After all if crime has slowed down there there, than some crime will stop elsewhere too. We should stop what we can and when ever we can -to protect our people. Thanks for the nudge. PS-The IRS-knows nothing about 4th generation-it might be old-it is not in their books now. (earlier post)
  • Yes , any thing to help these people along the border from all the crime committed there
  • yes- but not because it drives down crime. we cant have illegals in this counrty because they dont pay taxes. regardless of weather or not the price of a watermelon would be 50 dollars or not if illegal aliens weren't here, it doesnt change the fact that illegal aliens tear a major hole in our economy. mexico should not be the only country targeted nor should the citizens of mexico. ALL illegal aliens should be taken care of. if they arent paying taxes, and they are taking money from someone that pays them to work but they spend almost none of the money in the country, it tears a hole in our economy. not to mention that they dont pay taxes so the tear is even bigger and with enough of this happening it creats a SERIOUS problem. example: i work at a restaurant. i make x amount of dollars that is mine and mine to do what i want with. but no matter how i slice it and dice it, every penny i make stays in the country. i pay the grocery store witch pays their bills, i pay my credit union which pays there bills, i pay rent wich pays someone elses bills, my money will continue to be someone elses money and it might even reach the other side of the county but it doesnt matter because the money meets another citizens needs, and there money will eventually become mine. BUT, if i make $3,000 in a month, cash, and $0 goes to the government, i hardly eat, i spend 100 dollars in rent a month because i live with 9 other families in an apartment, i dont have a car to pay insurance or a payment or fuel, i dont pay electric... i put only 30% of my monthly income back into the community and send the rest back to a country that will never send it back to the country i live in, then i just gave a country $2100 and no one on my side of the fence will ever benfit from it again. thats just me and as little as illegals get paid for what they do, they DO MAKE MONEY. alot of it becuase of the amount of hours they work and the fact that they see every penny of it because its cash. they can say they are poor here all they want but the truth is that most of them live that way on purpose to provide for there family at home. imagine $2100 dollars A MONTH from millions of illegal aliens. THIS COUNTRY IS SUFFERING FROM IT. there side of this argument would be that they work hard for there money, they have a god given right to do what they want with it ( wich they do) and who are we to give them a hard time for feeding there wife and children that suffer in a poor and corrupt country? why is this not ADMIRABLE to us is what they want to know! well heres the answer to the point. we get to say NO and WE DONT CARE IF YOUR COUNTRY SUFFERS, because WE'RE suffering and its OUR country they we need to take care of IT first. our counrty is a wealthy one and good in amany ways, but if we keep feeling sorry for other countries, ours will continue to get poorer and poorer until one day WE'LL be climbing THERE fence and i garuntee that by they time there will be one and it WILL be gaurded. in my opinion a better solution to the problem would be, instead of sending them back to a poor and dying country or throwing them in jail, give them a ride to the dmv or where ever the hell it is you go to get a SS#, and they can start paying taxes and being monitored no more or less then any other US citizen is ( i.e. no more living with more than 2 people in a bedroom per household), and set consequences for employees non tax payers that will be ENFORCED. FIX the problem dont GET RID of it
  • Definitely demand more border security!
  • Jesus! There's a shocker! We liked it when the military was there, only they shot the wrong Mexicans.
  • HEEEEEEEEELLLLL NOOOOOOO it doesn't!!!!!1 it makes it even more bad. we all just need get along as bbbrrrrrrrrrooos and ssssssssssssssiiiiiiiissssssssters
  • HELL YES WE SHOULD DEMAND MORE OF IT.
  • No real catch. Be aware of what it says in case you miss a payment. For instance two properties in TEXAS say that if you are 7 days late on a payment you will be put out of the house by the county Sheriff and you will be out all the money you paid on the property. NO second chances. Oh the other hand if you don't plan to be late it is a cheaper way to get into a house if you don't have a down payment or have bad credit.
  • catch? Owners need to be convinced to become a temp bank. Few will do it but some will
  • I have been in the same place since June 2006. I have brought it to the attention of the complex that I am missing a screen on my window (which I noted on my initial walk thru checklist when I first signed my lease), here it is over a year later and I still have not got it. I have mentioned numerous times that I have some electrical outlets that don't work. The first time I mentioned it I left out of town there after only to find when I got home a week later that my place stunk because they forgot to turn the breaker back on and all my food went bad. They replaced my fridge and payed for the food but I still have outlets that don't work. Now I'm having the problem of someone from the complex entering my apt while I'm at work and not leaving a notice they had been there, I know because things are out of place. Now I've gone without one of my sinks for over 2 months. I complain and nothing happens. I was 2 busy 2 move and now I'm signed for another year here... what can I do????
  • Is the complex required to issue each apt a fire extinguisher? Each building in the complex has 6 apts and each building has 3 floors. On each floor there is a fire alarm pull switch and on the 1st floor is the alarm power supply box. If they have these are they not required to maintain them? I think there was a mafunction to the one in my building because a pull switch was down and I let the front office know. The next thing I know the pull switch is in the right position but the lockable door to the power box is open and I looked and saw the battery was disconnected. Is there something I can do about this also? The apts are actually pretty nice and I've been suprised to be having so many problems with the office...
  • The complex is not required to issue fire extinguishers for each apartment. They are required to have one on each floor and it should be tagged that it has been examined each year and deemed functionable. If you look at it and that has not been done and especially the disconnected battery from the fire alarm box, inform your local code compliance department immediately. That is a definite fire hazard. Also review your lease contract, they are pretty standard throughout the country. See what it says about breach of contract. You cannot withhold rent. The minute you do not pay them the money and they provide a 3 day notice for payment and you do not comply with that, then they can file a notice to evict which would become public record and remain on your credit file for years. What you can do is the following 1) Send a CERTIFIED LETTER to your landlord/ complex manager outlining the issues and that he/she has 7 days from receipt of the letter to comply and fix the problems. Also in the letter you should indicate that IF he/she fails to fix the problems,it would be considered a breach of contract and ALL monies will be paid into an escrow account which will be held by the County Courts office- civil division ( which would then involve Code Enforcement) until either the problems have been rectified or you are allowed to break the lease with no penalties and return any security deposits etc being held for you. 2) If there is failure to comply within that time period, then just go straight to your local county courthouse to the Civil division and ask what papers you needed to file in order for an account to be opened and the landlord will be served by the courts. This is to prevent them from saying you did not pay rent and therefore will have to evict you. You will cut that avenue off or they may just say forget and let you out of your lease and there will be no public record of a broken lease. Calling a TV station only puts everybody in your business and can make it difficult for you to rent somewhere else ( the suckers talk to each other all the time, especially corporate owned complexes). The only time I would say it is a good idea is if there are other people in your complex complaining and experiencing the same thing,with the same results- absolutely nothing being done, especially with something electrical. It might help to light a fire under their butts.
  • Seeing as how I used to rent apts in two places in two counties here, here's my take. First, call your local county Fire Marshall and notify them so they can do an impromptu inspection. Second, Call the health inspector and alert them to what's going on. Third, Call a local TV station and talk with a reporter because this is enough for a hell of a story for public notice. Fourth, then call a lawyer who can help you sort all of this out. This could wind up in Small Claims court. Hope you have Dweller's Insurance. If not, get some quick! Why? First thing I got when I went into my apt. As to the TV notification, my ex used to work for a TV station. I know what they look for and sometimes just calling them can move things along very quickly for the good of all involved, primarily the renters getting everything fixed up to where it should be. You might also want to contact the Local Housing authority for code violations. Good luck!
  • This is, by no means, legal advice and I am not an attorney. I will tell you what I know by experience. The first thing that you need to do is take out a copy of your lease and examine it thoroughly. In Texas, apartment leasing contract language is pretty standard and it sounds as though the landlord has breached the contract on multiple occasions. This is even a serious danger to you as you do not know who is accessing your apartment and for what purpose(s). At the very least, you need to IMMEDIATELY look for a new place to live. Make sure that you document everything, write out statements and keep them on file and try to have someone witness the events in the document. If you believe that someone has entered your apartment without your consent or knowledge call the police. The bottom line: Document everything. Report everything. Look for a new, safe, secure place to live.
  • I would speak to a lawyer. My personal view is to withhold rent, stating that you are not getting what is paid for, so you are not going to pay until it is up to what the lease states. The other thing you can do is inform the landlord that you are going to call and get someone in to fix all of the things wrong with your apartment, and send them the bill. The third thing is to call and speak to a building inspector for the city. Inform them of what you are paying, and what issues you have in your residence. Ask them if there is anything that they can do to assist with your issue. If you have documentation of all the times you have informed the landlord of the issues, this will definitely help. A nice visit from the city/county, as well as citations might speed up service. But if this is the normal practice of the landlord, I would personally search for another place to live, and then sue them for your security deposit.
  • With the mould project, he could have had a stable reason to break the hire IF he exact notified the owner in writing and gave them sufficient time to therapy the placement. it fairly is very actual in Texas which has fairly some the toughest mildew rules interior the rustic. If he did no longer notify them of the project and easily moved out he could be held to blame for the stability of the hire till they placed a sparkling tenant. The courts have usually held that 2 months is sufficient time to discover a sparkling tenant and could usually decrease his criminal duty to that. He could have a controversy that the time necessary to splendid the mould project should not be charged returned to him; the clock ought to basically initiate as quickly as the unit replaced into waiting for human habitation returned. As to the wear claims, he ought to have accomplished a circulate-out inspection with the owner or their representative. that for the time of many circumstances prevents any surprises. merely shooting does not unavoidably help because of the fact it incredibly is often no longer attainable to teach while they have been taken even though it incredibly is greater useful than no longer something. If it is going to courtroom, often the only with the terrific arranged case comes out because of the fact the winner and having photos easily helps on that score. He may be able to desire to seek for advice from with a close-by lawyer and have them draft a letter to the owner outlining the justifications that he should not be held to blame. in many circumstances while a landlord gets a letter from an lawyer they're going to easily drop issues (marvel!) because they be attentive to you're no longer messing around. He may additionally desire to sue in Small Claims courtroom for any deposit that he lost. in many circumstances the terrific protection in those circumstances is a robust offense!
  • See if you can do a "7 day notice to cure" It is a legal document that says if the landlord doesn't fix the problems you are going to leave and not have to honor the lease becasue the landlord didn't keep his end of the deal. If he doesn't fix it, then leave.

  • I went to A&M and after looking over your qualifications you seem to be somewhat of a slacker. You should probably consider a good community college.
  • I need something that is really close or can help me with needs. my cat had another siezure a 4th one. How do i get help? or donations? i don't approve of care credit. i need help please what can i do for my poor baby cat? i hate seeing her with a seizure. they are so so far apart but i dont' want her to have another seizure. she may need an MRI she already got a blood work but there may be expensive test she needs.
  • I looked for some a while back and it was very hard to find, there were some sites that said they offer financial assistance though. You can also talk to local animal shelters, they may be able to point you in the right direction. Some vets offer payment plans as well but it's not common. My cat had to be hospitalized and they let me put a $300 deposit down and wright post dated checks for the rest. Good luck. http://www.humanesociety.org/animals/res...

  • When I rented, they just asked for a one month rent, one month deposit, and maybe something for the electric and water. I moved 4 times while I lived in Mexico for 12 years, and I too came from Texas. My first time of renting was using a 180 day entrance, the I went back and permanently moved into the same apartment that I had rented before. But I brought all my things with me. Good luck, and you will find that it really is easy.
  • Here in Texas we would call the texas workforce commission. if your state has one of those i would call them and find out if they have any policies on that and maybe get a few people at your job who feel the same way you do as witnesses of the negative results of their inconsistent human resources/payroll division
  • Call the Department of Labor - they will not share your name with your employer. They will be able to help you with the late pays - as for changing your pay date - they don't really need your permission to do that. A company can change the pay schedule if they would like. BTW - I would get my resume out, looks like a sign this company won't be around long.
  • Depends on where you live. Call the Department of Labor, or just google it for your state. They will point you in the right direction!
  • By Ronnie Nathanielsz Undefeated and world rated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, son of the legendary Mexican Julio Cesar Chavez has arrived in San Antonio, Texas ripped and ready for what could very well turn into a war against Ireland’s John Duddy in their quest for the vacant WBC silver middleweight title at the Alamadome in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday. One of the interesting aspects of the big “Latin Fury 15” pay-per-view fight card of Top Rank promotions will be the return of Mexican legend Marco Antonio Barrera to the venue where he suffered the worst beating of his career at the hands of reigning pound-for-pound king and “Fighter of the Decade” Manny Pacquiao in an 11th round TKO in November 2003. Barrera has said he is not ashamed of that defeat after dropping a unanimous decision to Pacquiao in a rematch some years later and has indicated he is determined to overcome the challenge of rugged Brazilian Adailton De Jesus en route to going after another world title. Also adding excitement to the card which will be telecast in the Philippines by the giant broadcast network ABS-CBN over Studio 23 at 11:00 a.m. with a replay on pre-eminent Channel 2 on July 4 at 10:15 a.m. is the bout featuring Raul “The Cobra” Martinez whose only loss was at the hands of Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire in an IBF/IBO flyweight title fight in Manila on April 19, 2009 at the Araneta Coliseum, the “Mecca” of Philippine sports and entertainment. Martinez who is from San Antonio faces tough Gabriel Elizondo who, like him, is also a hometown boy. But the attraction is certain to be Chavez Jr who has won praise from pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao’s conditioning expert Alex Ariza while working out at the Wild Card Gym under four-time “Trainer of the Year” award winner Freddie Roach and Ariza, who told us Chavez “is doing very well. With all the rumors about being lazy and all the problems we might have, he’s been the complete opposite.” Ariza said Chavez Jr is “a great athlete, a hard worker . They said he wouldn’t be able to get up at 5 o’clock in the morning but he’s been doing it every day. He deserves a lot of credit.” The conditioning expert said Chavez Jr had the flu when he first arrived in Los Angeles but had overcome everything including his weight problems and that everyone is “ going to be pleasantly surprised how well he’s done. And he’s been great with Freddie (Roach) who is such an incredible teacher that Chavez is picking up on all of it.” The 24 year old Chavez Jr, who will battle Duddy for the newly minted, vacant WBC Silver middleweight title, is coming off a ten round unanimous decision over Troy Rowland (25-2, 7 KO’s) last November 14 after scoring a 1st round TKO over Jason LeHoullier (21-1-1, 8 KO’s) on September 12, 2009. The 30 year old Duddy is also coming off two good wins. He won a split decision over tough Michael Medina (23-1-2, 18 KO’s) last March 13 after earlier scoring a 1st round TKO over Juan Astorga (14-3-1, 9 KO’s). Duddy is the former IBA and former WBC Continental Americas middleweight champion.

  • Watch the fight here tonight www.HQ-STREAMs.com
  • really, they cant just make themselves join. and if texas tech plays like they did yesterday i think utah would sluaghter them. And you talking about me not watching much football, how many utah games have you seen this year? my point exactly. They get no credit becuase they are in the mountain west. No one gets to see how good they are, becuase they arent ever on national television
  • They have played michigan, oregon state, UNLV(who beat a then ranked arizona state)TCU, and yesterday they crushed the then ranked 14 BYU. In 83' when BYU won it all everyone said they wouldnt have a chance against the real teams becuase they were in the mountain west. Now its utahs turn. Rivals has a good article on it right now.
  • Utah should join a real football conference before they complain. You have to beat good teams regularly if you want to be taken seriously. Do you really think that Utah could beat Texas or Tech ? If you do, you don't watch much football. :-o
  • I don't get it either. Here Utah beat Oregon State (the week after Oregon State beat USC), they beat TCU and they haven't lost a game. It doesn't make any sense why they're ranked behind USC.
  • Who has Utah played? Oh I forgot nobody. If they want the respect they need to join a real conference
  • In my opinion Utah shouldent be abo
  • I had paid to take a comedy class, which got delayed by a couple of months, and by then I couldn't take it due to my schedule. Because of other circumstances, I probably can't take the class period. Since I now can't take the class, I'd like to get my money back. The comedy club is saying they don't give refunds and doesn't want to give my money back. Keep in mind there was no contract signed. This is also in Texas. Do they have the right to just take my money like that if I can't take the class? Can't I legally get my money back? I really would hate to press the issue and burn any bridges with people, but at the same time, it is a lot of money.
  • You would probably get your money back if you pushed it but would also burn your bridges. They have no sense of humor when it comes to $$$$$$.
  • Did you pay with a credit card? If so, I would call my CC company and talk to them.
  • He has been a U.S. Permanent Resident since November 3, 1989. His criminal records shows the following: 1) DWI 1st- Probation- Complete July 23, 1996 2) Assault Bodily Injury- Dismissed- January27, 1995 3) Assault Bodily Injury- 20 Days County Jail- Complete January 3, 1997 4) Assault- 60 Days County Jail- Complete March 25, 1998 He has been trouble free ever since. The only thing that I see is that #4 started out as a Felony Indictment for Aggravated Assault w/Deadly Weapon, but ended up as a lesser offense of Assault. All his time was county time. This all happened in Houston, Texas. Harris County On another note, if he applies for U.S. Naturalization and he is denied, can that same fee he paid be used to renew his green card, that's already expired. We are trying to weigh the options of what's the best thing to do. Best answer gets all the credit...
  • Maybe. He's borderline deportation material***, but since he's been out of trouble since 1998, it's worth investing $680 to find out. If the N-400 is denied based on the good moral character clause, the money is gone. It will not be returned or credited. *** There is something important for daddy to understand. He has been outside a cave with sleeping lions. They don't know he is there, and nothing bad will happen. If daddy now goes inside the cave and wakes up the sleeping lions which will happen when he submits his N-400, it's possible, just possible, that the I.O. not just denies him naturalization, but finds that he should have been deported back in 1998 and that it's time now to get busy in that regard. I don't dare to guess that this will happen -- what the heck: less than 15% perhaps -- but it is possible.
  • im not sure i got mine out when i was a little bit younger..but i think if you dont get put to sleep it is quite a bit cheaper
  • I ordered an Item I live in Mcallen, Texas and its coming from Georgia my questions are 1. How do I know if he already sent it? 2. I payed with credit card and The shipping was free how long would it take to be here 3. I ordered it On Sunday and When i put the Tracking number to track it it says they cant find it, Why?
  • The seller should mark your item as shipped as soon as you paid him. If he didnt ship the same day as your payment or the day after he deserves bad feedback after you get the item. But Since you are saying the seller gave you a tracking number he must have shipped it. The post offices are closed sunday so he had to ship it yesterday so it might take a few more days. I would contact the seller and ask for the tracking number again if it is not showing.
  • 1) Principles of Accounting II (Managerial) 2) Business Law I 3) Business Statistics 4) European Economy History 5) Management - Organizational Behavior 6) Principles of Marketing I am enrolled at the University of Texas in Arlington. My friends say I should at least take 5 classes because it will be my first semester. I transferred from the Junior College with a GPA of 3.91. I took there all the freshmen and sophomore classes, which I completely transferred to the UTA. My question is: Would YOU take all these classes in one semester?
  • Yep, I would do that much. That comes to about 18 credit hours, which is not too bad if you don't work. I am an electrical engineering major and I will be taking classes that require more math and science (and programming), and will be close to that many classes/credit hours with the more difficult subject.
  • instructions are frequently divided into 2 important camps: "usual practise" and electives. usual practise instructions are those that are required by potential of any college: case in point, English composition, literature, math, speech, perhaps history or some actual practise instructions. those are the varieties of instructions you may take on the community college (yet, of direction, this is in all threat the comparable suggestion the consultant will share with you). community college are often low-priced than different colleges. non-compulsory classes are ones you choose, and that they'd desire to make a contribution on your selected important. Social artwork (and all majors) would have their very own standards, and those are the classes you may concentration on at Cal State. sturdy success.
  • I have chronic migraines that could keep me out of school days at a time. I managed to get C's both semesters in Spanish and Algebra 2. I got a C in physics 1st semester, but got a B the second. I honestly tried my hardest to catch up. My schedule consisted of 3 AP classes and 3 honors classes(I got C's in all honors). I'm typically an A/B student and never got a C before this year. Junior year brought my GPA down to a 3.26. By the time I graduate, I will have taken 5 AP classes, 2 dual credit, and 10 honors. I got a 1740/1140(CR+M) on my SAT and a 27 on my ACT. I hold 3 officer positions in school clubs and am active in several others. I have at least 30 hours on community service. Senior year will be a lot better I'm sure now that I'm on medication. I'm trying to get into the University of Alabama and Trinity University. My safeties are Texas State, Lamar, and Sam Houston State.
  • You'll be just fine. It's obvious that you've been working your butt off despite your difficulties. Your transcripts and college resume may show a dip in performance junior year, but as long as you show that you're back to your old self by senior year, most admissions will note it lightly.
  • One bad junior year will not prevent you from going to college. It just means you have to work a bit harder. As a long time sufferer of migraines I sympathise. You might want to talk to your doctor about this. There are some medications that work amazingly well on migraines. They won't stop them, but may lessen the severity so you don't feel like your head is going to explode from the pressure.
  • It definitely won't keep you out of college, but it will make getting into good colleges more difficult.
  • You are very likely to get into the schools on your list. Make sure that you use an essay to tell your story, and you will be fine. The rest of your application looks strong for these schools, and your lower grades are for valid reasons, which you're putting behind you.
  • I know in common law states , it doesn't matter until divorce is granted , your responsible for half whatever you acheived in the marriage. I worked with a woman and she was divorced , she decided to put a real beautiful swimming pool in here backyard, carpeted her house and just a lot of work and she used her husbands and her married name together , the bureau had not been notified they were divorced. He was getting married again and was trying to buy a new home , he couldn't his credit was maxed. She really got in bad trouble and cost a fortune to get it all straightened out in Texas . If she had of done this before the divorce was granted he would of had to pay up, because Texas is a community property state.
  • I signed a lease at an apartment complex, after hearing bad things from the apartment complex i decided to drop out from it. I went to talk the apartment complex and they told me that i couldn't drop out. I decided to walk out with all the paperwork with my signatures, so now they have no documentation that i signed the lease, Do you think i am out of the lease?
  • Brianna, This is a pretty funny story lol! You're probably off the hook. What you could do to be sure, is send them an email saying that you have decided not to go through with renting an apartment from them. Then there's something in writing with the date on it, that you aren't going through with moving in. This is important in case they try to sue you for rent later. Saying it like this also doesn't admit that you signed a lease, either. Also, if you've given them any money, in your letter or email, demand that they return your money immediately, and give the the correct mailing address to do so. You can always break a lease. The landlord has to try and rent to someone else as quickly as possible, and can only charge you for rent on the apartment until they can rent to someone else. Worst case scenario, they try to keep your deposit or send you a bill for some rent, then you will have to take them to small claims court. Tell the judge you changed your mind about moving in, that you are aware that landlords must mitigate damages (this is what it's called that they need to try to rent it out right away), and that you would like your court fees reimbursed by the landlord, as well, if you win. Texas law: http://law.onecle.com/texas/property/91....If you go to court, print this out to give the judge. You could also send the link to the landlord in your email. They'll probably just let it go. I really do love that you just grabbed the file. Nobody's gonna bully you! LOL!
  • You say you have everything then they can't find you. If someone remembers your name and where you work, they can find you. You can still be in trouble because verbal is legal and if you stole the papers, they can call the police on you. Why would they not realize you took all the papers? All they have to do is call the police and make charges against you. Then they go to court with the police report and that will be considered...heavily. Usually there is a fine for not moving in. You should have just paid that and moved on. One you sign, other possible tenants are turned away and advertising is canceled. The process has to be started again and sometimes it is impossible to get people to call again and $ is lost. That's why there is a fee. If you were in there and the papers were out and then they don't have them to put away...who do you think they think took the papers. And then you never know who has cameras. It will all remain to be seen if they think it is worth their time to pursue you. I would and at least I would call the police and file charges.
  • More importantly you wish to have a letterhead document from them mentioning that they would can help you out of your rent at any time with written detect. Then anything variety of letter they are inquiring for in that word is what you prepare. Comply with the time period and instructional materials they offer you of their letter then do your phase to end your a part of the lease contract. Store copies of the whole lot just in case they get sneaky afterward-for proof that you did all that they prompt you to do.
  • Are you sure they didn't make a copy of the lease. Did they run your credit already? Honestly if they have no record of you signing the lease it'll be nearly impossible for them to enforce since its your word against theirs and they may not even know who you are. However, if they have a copy of the lease, or even your credit info and other info they can take you to court for this.
  • Depends. In most states a verbal lease, if it can be proven, is legal.
  • It was theft to take their documents. Stealing the contracts does not mean they can not sue you, it just verifies that you are a low life to the judge.
  • check your states dept of consumer affairs under landlord tenant some states allow you 3 days to back out but it must be in writting
  • My boyfriend and I bought a timeshare through silverleaf. We want to change our mind, but the guy who sold it to us said we can't because we took over someone else's contract. In the contract it states that we have six days to cancel. I called corporate, and they told me to fax a letter of cancellation. Which I did, and now I'm waiting. Also, the manager who helped with the timeshare wanted us to give him a check so he can process it and ask for cancellation. We did not give him a check, so is that a bad thing we didnt give him a check? We also faxed all the paperwork on the 2nd day and talked to corporate but we aren't sure if they are going to let us out of it. What are some steps to take to get out of it and not hit our credit?
  • Faxes can get "accidentally" lost by their corporate office and after six days they will probably come back and claim that you did not submit the request in time. - Not sure how much time you have given that you have six days to cancel. You need to have official documentation of the receipt for your request to cancel. If this company is in your city, send a follow up request to cancel via Certified Mail with Return Receipt. If they are not in your city, send it via overnight FedEx with signature confirmation. It will cost about $22 but it might be worth it. Do this for sure on Monday. - Never mix your finances with someone you are dating.
  • Hi there, well actually is very difficult to get rid of timeshare, but is not impossible, the first error that will do when we acquire a timeshare is to not read quite well the contract , we need to do a very deep research about the timeshare field before buy something.. years ago i was on a very annoying situation with a mexico resort, so i started to search on the web and i found this site http://www.timesharescam.com/blog/ that help me how to proceed in cases like yours, exist many people that actually are involved in timeshare complaints , check it out , hope you help it, good luck
  • Hey guys! Me and 2 of my friends and colleagues are going to Amman, Jordan next summer to finish up a documentary we are doing that focuses on Arab perception of the U.S. and U.S. foreign policy. Although we are not looking for a name for our documentary yet we are looking for a name for our overall project. This will be used in more of the paper work/media/advertising aspect of our work. Here are some things to help you: 1) Although we are going to be based in Amman, Jordan we are going to be going to other places such as Damascus, Syria and Jerusalem, Israel. 2) This documentary is about perception, and how sometimes the perception of something or someone is greater than reality. 3) We are three students from Texas A&M. Although this will be a professional documentary, it is also a personal story of three Americans going to Jordan. If I can think of anything else to help then I will put it under additional info. If you want more information then post it and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks for your ideas! Jeffrey
  • edit 1 (To answerer #1): Jordan is more centrally located in the Middle East making it easier to travel to and from places. While Cairo is a beautiful and amazing city it can take longer to get to places like Syria. If we use any of these I will be sure to contact you so we can get your full name and give you credit.
  • Btw why not going to Egypt ?? if u went to Cairo you'll find some interesting places to look in and as for the name Traveling For The Truth Searching Over Seas Greater Than Reality Out OF America Inside OF a Small World with Big Word Lost and Found [ A new Sun comes up as reality is more touchable] Beyond What We Know [ critical Arabs worse than Critical Americans ? or is it all the same?] please credit me if you used one of these
  • I can't think of any names or ideas but good luck on your documentary! If I think of anything I will be sure to tell you.
  • Its proposing that all internet providers give all info (your IP, credit card,bank stmt,anything bought sold on internet) and all activity to Dept of Homeland Security to store for a year. Also a proposed UN world internet tax. SOPA/PIPA times 10. Look it up and start the petitions again. Harry Reid proposed it. This is not a rep/dem thing. The govt has no right to do this.
  • Reading about it right now. It's not harry reid, its the idiot from texas (not surprising) Lamar Smith. He's promoting under the guiss of protecting children from internet pornography. It has nothing to do with porn, it's all about collecting your information. Both sides are opposing it, hopefully there will be enough opposition to defeat it. Sorry but any bill sponsered by a republican from texas is bad. I live hear so I know what I'm talking about. Good job pointing this out.
  • why and would Harry Reid... a senator, be proposing a bill to the house of representatives?
  • Actually, about 90% of what you say is wrong. Look it up.
  • Look at this: http://content.usatoday.com/communities/...(I'm in Texas, one of the states mentioned in the article) The idea that the gov't would use GPS to track your driving habits is downright frightening to me. Smacks of Big Brotherism and is repugnant. Also, think about agricultural producers. Those in rural areas have to drive LONG distances to ship their products. And what about 18-wheelers? That just raises the cost of baseline products even MORE! Everyone on earth should oppose this mileage tax.
  • This is how 18 wheelers pay their highway use taxes already. If a truck doesn't take on enough fuel to cover the miles driven in a given state, a check a check is sent to the undercovered state to pay for the highway use. If the fuel purchased covers more than the miles driven, most states just credit the truck's account for the next period. I can drive my truck from Michigan to Connecticut without fueling along the way. Without the mileage tax, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York would be paying for their own roads (and crying about the "damage done by big truicks").
  • Seeing as most states already charge a tax at the pump per gallon this seems like double taxation to me. Also, there would be less incentive to drive more fuel efficient vehicles as a mile is a mile no matter what you are driving..
  • 'nancy' - The states in general are just as broke as the feds. They HAVE to find ways to raise money outside of a rigid tax code. Click on my avatar and look at the latest question I asked and see what I'm getting at only on a much large scale for the entire USA and then get back to me, OK ??
  • I don't see any advantage over gas taxes, which are much simpler, and reward people who use more efficient vehicles. Presumably commercial vehicles would be treated differently, but that in itself would lead to all kinds of getting around the tax by making one's pleasure driving look like commercial business. I am with you; it looks like a bad idea.
  • in addition to it being unconscionably intrusive, a tax on miles instead of a tax on gas also does less to encourage people to drive efficient cars
  • I remember as a kid watching, "Little House on the Prairie." Michael Landon's character was angry with a new tax imposed on the town. Sarcastically his character said that someday even our income would be taxed. Heh....
  • Wow and that is some tax! I thought maybe a few pennies, but 1.85 a mile by 2018! That is insane! This what this would mean if you owned a trucking company or a taxi cab...The last I had heard of this, the 0bama admin was floating the idea on the federal level...http://thehill.com/blogs/floor-action/ho...Ron Paul 2012!
  • Yes and it would kill folks like me who drive 70 miles one way to work
  • It is a terrible idea. It demonstrates how warped the thinking is among the Statists -- the Statists want you and I to server THEM.
  • Yes. It is a regressive tax. Nobody with a brain in their skull would support it.
  • Shoot for an LLC (limited liability corp.) because it will safegaurd you and is quite feasable to acquire.
  • Sure Could be but it will take a couple of more starts like these to see if he is back on track. Both the Mets and Tigers are NOT bad offensive teams but they DON'T have a deep and scary lineup like Texas. But give him credit for hanging in there. He's been terrific in his last couple of starts. As in 2010, no. He led the leagues in run support despite the fact that his ERA was over 4.00.
  • i'm a huge yankee fan. and as much as i'd love for hughes to be good, he simply isn't : (
  • I have a car right now which i am VERY behind in the payments... my mom and i discussed that it might be a better idea to just get a used car, finance it which will make my monthy payments lower and the price of the car being about 3,000.. when the car i have now is 16,000. the car i have now is not in my name even tho i am the co-signer. Its under my dads.. he doesnt mind either.. his credit is already messed up., but my point is.. does anyone kno where i can finance a used car and where they except okay-bad, credit? AND without car insurance 2 start.. i will get it, but i need to wait till i get a raise. which is coming up i just need to get a car now, b4 they repo mine and i wont have any car to get to work..
  • I am originally from another state and moved to Texas because I was stationed here. My original plan was to finish my enlistment and move back to my home state. However, I met a great guy while stationed here (a civilian) and decided to stay for a while. That "a while" has turned into 2 years. I then decided I'd finish my BS here and just go to grad school in my home state. But my original intention has ALWAYS been to leave, go back home and watch my little sister grow up. I've missed out on a great deal of her formative years, and it kills me. The boyfriend and I have talked about it before, since the beginning...that he'll be in graduate school here, but I will be leaving. He's the only thing that's kept me here. I still have 1 1/2 years 'til I complete my BS and I feel like the time has come for me to leave, though I would be leaving "early." Our relationship is wonderful. I love him very much, and though I can't actually speak for him, I imagine he feels the same way. But I feel like staying is just postponing the inevitable. Whether I leave now, or a year and a half from now, I WILL BE LEAVING. Not to mention, if I stay in Texas and finish my degree, then apply to my University of choice in my home state...my chances of being accepted will probably dwindle. I stand a greater chance of acceptance (I imagine) being a resident of the state the school is in, if that makes sense. Anyway, the point is I've made my decision to leave after this semester is up...but I have no idea how to break this news to him. Again, we've talked about it, but this would be leaving "early" and I know that he's going to be incredibly upset. I want to soften the blow (we've been together 5 years!)...but news like this, no matter how you sugar coat it, is going to suck. And please, nothing about marriage. Neither of us wants to get married...to each other or anyone else. Also, we've talked about the long distance relationship--and though I have my doubts (logically, what are the chances two young people will stay together for 4 or more years long-distance?) I love him and would be willing to give it a shot.
  • Your right , after 5yrs with one person its going to hurt to hear the news, but like you said, the time has come for you to move on. I would just explain to your boyfriend that the time has come for you to move on and follow your dreams back home.I would also tell him that its not fair to yourself or him to keep pushing the "good bye" further and further into the future.If your willing to try the long distance relationship, so be it, I give credit for being smart enough to know that it might go by the wayside.
  • it could work if there is set times and dates to meet often. and trust not to cheat.
  • Do it by Twitter.
  • I have my credit report in front of me and I want to clear up some old/bad debt. I see the credit limit / original amount listed which shows one number. Then I see the "recent balance" with a higher number (in some cases) which I assume means interest being accrued. When trying to settle, do I base my figure off the original amount or the recent banlance? And yes, get it in writing BEFORE sending payment. And never allow them access to my account. :) Thanks for your help!
  • Rather then provide an answer that promotes a sales idea, I will answer this with the following: First of all, check to see if the debt is time barred or in other words, too old to take legal action in court to collect. You can find your states statute of limitations at this web site http://www.bcsalliance.com/statute_of_li...If the debt is time barred and you make any payments or arrangements for payment, you will then have reaffirmed the debt and reset the SOL. This gives them the right to seek a judgment and garnish your wages. If the debt is NOT time barred, then how much to pay would depend on who "owns" the debt. Accounts that are slightly older and on which a collection agency or two has already taken a whack: 1.5 cents to 2 cents on the dollar. If it is the original creditor (the credit card company itself or even the bank) be sure to settle the debt and make sure that they do not charge off more then $600. Any debts charged off above that amount must be reported to the IRS as unearned income and they will file a 1099C. Hope this helps answer your question.
  • doubt they will settle for 15% but we just settled a debt for 50% . We owed $16,000.00 and they settled for $8,000.00.
  • best way is to pay them off.
  • Perry is ten times worse than Bush. Even Bush says that Perry is too radical. Think about that Perry scares George Bush. Nothing good comes out of Texas.
  • Perry was a Bush clone. He is worse than Bush now. There is much more political extremism now then when Bush was President. Watch the GOP debates. It seems the crazies are trying to out crazy the other crazies. And Perry is doing his best to be part of that circus.
  • Allow me for a moment to digress: Not only do 47% of American workers pay NO Federal income tax, many get Earned Income Credit and receive bonus money added to the RETURN of any taxes they may have paid. Ten percent of the top wage/income earners pay Seventy percent of Federal taxes. Now, as to privatizing Social Security: SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE. It's not if something should be done. It HAS TO BE DONE, or else Social Security will run out of funds, IN YOUR LIFE TIME. Privatizing part of it is only one possibility. The discussion is on going as to what should happen. But something MUST HAPPEN, SOON. Medicare is another HUMONGOUS problem facing us very soon. All these entitlement programs must be reformed. Not SHOULD THEY BE REFORMED. Look at Greece and see our future if we don't!!
  • He seems to have many neocon ways about him, like Bush. The only real conservatives in the race are Herman Cain and Ron Paul.
  • Perry is definitely a moron. But I wouldn't worry Obama will be running against Herman Cain, not Perry.
  • It is a message that has sold for the past thirty years it has proven to work over and over again. Yes even cos want things for free. That is why I have started calling then anarchist because they want to kill government by starving it of revenue.
  • I am honestly not sure WHAT Perry is up to. He seems to be trying to copy anything and everything that gives the others a bump in the polls. He has got a "knock-off" campaign going. Never seen anything so sad.
  • He seems worse than Bush. The result of his policies would have even more disastrous results than the ones we experienced under Bush. We are still struggling to recover from those.
  • I'm tired of TX pols, but, yes. There are stats & it has been done in sections of the country - privatizing SS works. & so does reducing taxes. We need to reduce govt. Yes. Wars are whats causing the problem, but I dont see the dems stopping them, but making more.
  • Please explain why private retirment accounts are not near any financial crisis point and Social Security is. Anyone with a pension plan can tell you its more dependable at this point than SS. There are no plans in the works to correct and problems with other than union pension plans. Senator Casey would like to confiscate private pension plans (nationalize them) and use them to shore up fail union pension plans because he never met a union he didn't like. He and Obama are on the same page here.
  • I'm a junior in high school, so I really need to start thinking about this. I want to be a theatre teacher when I'm older. I'm paying for college myself, so I need a relatively inexpensive college. Also, I live in Texas, and I hate it; I don't want to spend the rest of my life here. So, what's the best college for me?
  • Try to get as many scholarships and grants as you can to help you pay. You may hate Texas, but maybe a few more years won't be so bad. If your school has duel credit classes, take them. Try out a community college first just to get the basics and a few education/ theater classes. It will be cheaper, and you can at least get an Associates degree.
  • I'm a 19 year old college student whom lives in Texas. I drink on weekends and go to parties and have fun, all that good stuff. However, just tonight, I was wondering why EXACTLY should I have to be 21 in order to legally purchase alcohol? Now I use the couple of my friends whom own fake I.D's in order to obtain beer and liquor...but I'm starting to get tired of having to do that. The thing is, when my dad was younger, the drinking age was 18. Now it's 21, and I am having a hard time understanding why the government has decided that 21 is the right age. You would think that if I'm old enough to buy cigarettes, be tried as an adult, and go to war/become drafted by the military that I'd be old enough to buy a cold drink every once in awhile. Yet, the government has not deemed me "responsible" enough to purchase alcohol. I'm responsible enough to vote for the leader of our country, drive a car, pay taxes and go to prison, but not enough to drink a little bit? I just don't understand...
  • I realize that it is illegal, but that's not answering my question. WHY is it illegal? I mean, it used to not be illegal...and it's not illegal to have a drink in every other part of the world, so why is it here in the United States? I realize that in other countries where it's legal to drink at a legal age, their legal system is different...but it's not like our government is doing a good job anyways. Our country is in a recession, we're still in a war, illegal immigrants still cover the streets...it's just pathetic. I'm more responsible than roughly 40 percent of 21-year-old adults I meet anyways. Who is the government to say that I am not a responsible individual at the age of 19? I live in my own house, pay water/electric/gas/credit card/phone/internet bills, hold 2 jobs and go to class during the spring and fall. But no, I can't let loose a little bit on Friday night unless my parents or a friend responsible (read: old) enough buys it for me. Why?
  • "Americans become adults at age 18 and at that time enjoy the right to marry, adopt children, serve on juries, enter into binding legal contracts, operate businesses, employ others, go to prison, be executed, obtain abortions, engage in legal games of chance (gamble), hunt with deadly weapons, fly airplanes, drive automobiles and other vehicles, purchase (or perform in) erotica or pornography, vote, and risk their lives by serving in the United States military. However, they can’t legally enjoy a drink." Still there has been no logical answer to my question as to WHY I am deemed too irresponsible. Did you know: Most if not all college campuses make it a REQUIREMENT for incoming freshmen to take and pass an alcohol-awareness test? Yet, it is still illegal for me to buy alcohol until 2 or 3 YEARS AFTER I've taken this test.
  • Drinking is bad,,,mm'kay.Young people are already stupid(before you get pissed,realize that I was once young too,so I know what I'm talking about!!!).Combine that with alchohol,which makes even the smartest people ignorant asses(not always but mostly),and the fact that a person's brain doesn't fully develope the ability to accuratley assess risk until the mid 20s makes for quite often a deadly combination.The only good to come out of it is the boom in business for the dna testing centers.You know,,,the place where you go to find out for sure who da baby daddy is?Alchohol is just not a good choice.More bad will always come from it than good.Please trust me on that.I've had a DUI.I have friends that are dead.I have wasted alot of money and time.You can't take any of that back.I wish I could.
  • I never liked the reasoning that since you can "die for you country" when you are 18, you should therefore be able to buy alcohol at 18 (I know you didn't use that one in particular, but it's the most common). These are completely irrelevant to one another and I always cringe when I hear someone say it. It's such a lazy argument. However, I do agree that by 19 years old you should be able to purchase alcohol. That's about the time people get out of high school and start taking on greater responsibilities in their life. Still, with the amount of DUI's and drunk driving fatalities in this country, I'm not sure I want teenagers between the ages of 16 to18 freely getting drunk all the time. Of course, I know there are teens this age that are more responsible than some 30-something-year-olds, but for the most part they are exceptions. So 19 sounds good to me. Maybe one day drugs won't be so taboo in this country anymore and age limits will no longer be necessary, although I don't think we are ready for that yet.
  • Originally the law was 21 for adulthood and for everything except for the draft which was always 18...then Vietnam happened and the youth rose up on the issue and soon state by state change legislation so adulthood and all laws with it including became 18...When this happened drunk and driving deaths took off this was because some states would allow 18 year olds to drink and others would not...so 18 year olds would cross state lines get hammered and drive back. This is how MADD mothers against drunk driving got started...they are the main culprit to raising the drinking age. They got enough support in the 80s that the federal government decided to withhold highway tax dollars if the drinking age wasn't raised to 21 all the states obeyed. Side not MADD founder disagreed with her own org. and left because of this...
  • Because some idiots in the government decided that 21 is the magical birthday after which a person becomes "responsible" enough to drink. Never mind the fact that a 16 year old kid can drive a 3,000 pound weapon and 18 year olds can buy cigarettes and join the military. There are many "why" questions out there that simply do not have logical or reasonable answers. Like, why is cannabis illegal? The reason "why" is that in the late 1930's the government needed a reason to persecute Mexican immigrants due to racism and since many of these immigrants smoked cannabis the government made it a crime. They also started calling cannabis "marijuana" which is a Mexican/Spanish word, again used as propaganda along with other things like telling white women they would become insane whores if they smoked a joint. Pot has been illegal ever since because governments make loads of money when they arrest and incarcerate their citizens. Its the same thing with alcohol, they know people under 21 will do it regardless of the law and they capitalize on this. Incarceration nation at its finest. Of course, the people giving me thumbs down can't refute these facts. Look it up if you care to avoid being ignorant.
  • In the US, yes. It's actually not illegal to possess alcohol or consume it in some states, but it's always illegal to buy it when you are under 21. For your local laws, consult a lawyer or police officer.
  • "You would think that if I'm old enough to buy cigarettes, be tried as an adult, and go to war/become drafted by the military that I'd be old enough to buy a cold drink every once in awhile. Yet, the government has not deemed me "responsible" enough to purchase alcohol. I'm responsible enough to vote for the leader of our country, drive a car, pay taxes and go to prison, but not enough to drink a little bit? I just don't understand..." Me either, it seems a bit ridiculous. And by " a bit" i mean, a lot.
  • The drinking age was raised back to 21 from 18 because of the large number of problems caused by drinkers under the age of 21.
  • They made it law due to most alcohol accidents are with people under 21......I think if they say you are adult at 18 and go to war it should be 18..It is not and that they law21...
  • Unfortunately your bros and sisters before you have shown their asses just right in enough ways for the establishment to take the last shot at the youth they can take. Don't worry , the earlier you start drinking the bigger your chances of becoming an alcoholic or other substance abuser. All kids hate being young and all oldsters wish they were your age....Hang in there! You will puke too.....!
  • I'm european.. We have a good goverment.. I dont get the ethics behind america and the rest of of the world with the 21 and the 18 yr limits on everything what a load of bullsh*it... The europeans end up being mature at age 20.. when all you ppl dont stop bindge drinking and being retards at the end of your late 26... its sad that yoru country is trying to take care and prevent.. when there actually doing the dammage... Like we say.. let them be grownups at 16 and if they handel it they handel it... wich we all do... and by the end of our 20 we are sick and tired of it and grow the hell up. but you guys only start living untill your 21 or 18 making you feel immature and young and no respect from society because your "underdage". i think its a sick sadistic that the gouverment turnes you into Adult with a mind of a 16yr old by the time you 21.. you sad... because you wont think about university when you have become of age but partying and drinking... its a violant circle for you foreigners... thank god for EUROPE ! Just move out of your ignorant dumb naive country like seriously...
  • No it isn't weird because I am not checking the standings. It was only one game and just because you start 0-1 doesn't mean you will miss the playoffs. And just because you start 1-0 doesn't mean you will make it. I think Jon Lester just had a bad day yesterday but give the Rangers credit, they have an outstanding offense especially in that ballpark in Texas. I believe the Red Sox will be fine though and I still believe they will win the World Series
  • It's going to take a "few days" for the Red Sox to take first? Gee, I thought they were gonna be in first from Day One. I guess Theo was so wrapped up in improving the offense, that he thought that staff from the amazing "Run Prevention" plan from last year was good enough to get the job done this year. The Red Sux still have to pitch, and they have as many pitching questions as anyone.
  • Red Sox haven't won a game ALL SEASON.
  • It going to be more painful when my Rangers are going to sweep the Red Sox, enjoy, hope you have fun being in last place for a week
  • I guess ESPN's dream of having them go 162-0 is smashed.
  • LMFAO YEAH RIGHT, THEY'LL BE LUCKY TO FINISH IN SECOND PLACE BEHIND THE YANKEES.
  • I can't wait to see your overrated sucka$$ pitching rotation get injured and see PEDroia hit .260 and have your overpaid stars choke and miss the playoffs.
  • ohh yaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!! carlcrawford = MVP 2011
  • No, actually it's not weird.
  • This fall, I will be a sophomore, and I plan to transfer to a university this year from a community college by the end of the school year. By the end of January, this is what my application will look like. Before you look at my stats, will colleges take into consideration a strong upward trend? How much of an impact will that have on my chances of being admitted as a transfer? Overall GPA: 3.52 Freshman fall GPA: 3.5 Freshman spring GPA: 2.66 Freshman summer GPA: 3.0 Sophomore fall GPA: 4.0 Credit hours: 50 Volunteer hours: 230+ Extra curriculars: none Letter of recommendation: possibly 1 Classes I took and will take: Freshman fall: -remedial math 1: A -remedial math 2: B -remedial writing 3: C -class all freshman have to take: B -computer science intro: A Freshman spring: -remedial math 3: C -English 1: B -psychology intro: B -upper level biology: W -history intro: C freshman summer: -government intro: D -government intro (re-taken): A -upper level psychology: A Sophomore fall -English 2: A -upper level psychology: A -upper level biology (re-taken): A -college algebra: A -art history: A Sophomore January semester: -pre-cal: A -upper level psychology:A -intro to business (composition): A If I were to apply to these colleges, what do you think my chances are? -USC -UNC Chapel Hill -UT Austin -Texas A&M: College Station -Baylor University -University of California: Los Angeles -University of Michigan -University of Pittsburgh Thanks in advance!
  • Can you calculate your GPA after taking out your remedial courses? Those will not transfer or count toward your degree at any college. Other than that, it looks good, but it's hard to say which colleges will accept you. All colleges have different eligibility requirements, and some programs within colleges are even more competitive. You might want to try to talk to someone at each of these colleges.
  • I wouldn't say its a bad place to live, and Texas State is right there, so that's pretty convenient.
  • San Marcos is a college town, meaning it's a small town with a lot of college students. Texas State is there and it's a pretty great school. Great campus, beautiful scenery, accepts transfers. I have some friends that moved there to go to school and they never want to leave! haha. There's a huge outlet mall in SM so I'm sure theres always job opportunities there. Austin is only 20 min up the interstate so if you wanted to commute, theres UT Austin and I'm sure more job opportunities. But yes, I'd recommend it. Weather's great, beautiful town, and close to Austin so you can get the benefit of a small town and big city.
  • Because SWTSU is there it could be difficult to find a job. If you are financial aid you might be able to work on campus. You might try the outlet mall. San Marcos is a nice place. Location wise it is between Austin and San Antonio. There is only one university there.
  • San Marcos is actually really nice. homes are cheaper you have the outlet malls so everything from clothes shoes and liquior jewelry, etc. are cheaper there then san antonio and austin. youve got the college right there so its a younger city. Austin has 6th street and san antonio has downtown riverwalk. living right in the middle you get the best of both.
  • TERRELL OWENS FAN MAIL 2765 E. ELDORADO PKWY #215 - #139 LITTLE ELM , TEXAS 75068 http://www.terrellowens.com/index.php Or you can probably contact him through Deion Sanders at the NFL Network. (I hated Deion as an egotistical, glory hound when he was a player...but you have to give him credit, as an interviewer, he certainly draws out the best (or worse) from these guys. Watch here: Deion interviewing T.O. (be patient, and sit through the ad at the beginning) http://www.nfl.com/videos?videoId=09000d5d80cb4c92
  • Why would you want to in the first place. If you must though, go to Dallas and look for the big shiney dome floating around town with "Goodyear" stamped on the sides. That would be his head, then the rest will be close by. Just make sure your outside so that his ego doesn't flatten you.
  • You can go to the FAQs on the Cowboys website and they should give an address to send fanmail. Or you can google it and maybe find his home address or something. Why did you ask on here?
  • Wait long enough and you can probably contact him via the Texas Department of Corrections.
  • Go to Dallas, you can't miss him. He's the one with the fat head who's inflated ego floats him above the crowd.
  • I don't know his web page but I know he got one if you find out what it is you can locate him that way, you can look him up on myspace, plus he got a radio show you can call up them.
  • yea lemme check my cell phone contacts...jk im not sure but i am sure he is swamped with emails
  • yes --1 800azzhole
  • why would you want to?? cowboys suck. T.O. is a little cry baby. did you see him crying when people were picking on tony homo?
  • ... yeah your clearly gay, i mean i think we all can can see that
  • I'm a college student, living with parents and only one parent works. My mom had to leave her job due to health problems. Ive been out of a job for four years, I tried many places even places I would not want to work at and I still haven't gotten hired, it's totally unfair. My bills are piling up, I now have bad credit and I need to be able to afford my school supplies and personals. Is there any aid out there that I don't know about that can help someone like myself?
  • What state do you live in? I live in Texas and in Texas they have government programs to help people who are in a financial bind. They may help you pay a light bill or a phone bill. If you are not in Tx you may want to try some of the local church's in your area. My church gives to people that are in heed but you must come to the church on Sunday or whenever the doors are open. You may want to try that. They should help you with money at no charge. After all, what are church's for when you are in need.
  • Go to your school's financial aid office, and see if they can give you a work study job or some financial assistance.
  • Because those people would rather believe that some hick yokel from Texas is a puppet of some super secret group ran by Dick Chenney than believe that Radical Islamist are out to kill them. Even though those Radical Islamist take credit for it, and they demonstrate the fact that they are willing to kill innocent people around the world on a daily basis. It is much easier to go find every little snippet of inconsistent information on a Tuesday September morning in the midst of the worst terrorist attack in history than face the fact that Bush is their best hope to live a few more years without them having to confront that threat at their doorstep. Hell most of those idiots think Halliburton is an OIL COMPANY. And don't realize that only a very few people in the world have experience in demolitioning buildings of any size close to the WTC buildings. Yet somehow Bush and Chenney found some that could do it secretively while people walked past them setting hundreds of charges , laying miles of det-cord, and never talk about it--EVER!! When Bush could not find WMDs in IRAQ or coverup ABU-GHARIB butt pyramids.
  • Consider this; please, Not everyone is "on the same page", we just do not follow the group and then run that risk of making a collective error. This is the entire reason for individualism, so the answer is sort of blantantly "no". Why would it even be a problem to put that history, the evidence, the official presentation to the test of scrutinty--the scrutiny of the persons who pay for the services of the government employees through their taxes. All that is necessary is the establishment of a forum; and that is supposed to be completed by the government--it has not been. Formality addresses issues with ethics and also creates a forum that respects various beliefs and concerns. Let's leave it at that for now :) Terrorists, that is an entirely different topic. There are over 2,000 Americans dead; the people who work for us have a few questions to answer.
  • People will always go against the common belief. It's actually a good thing to look into alternative views once in a while, even if you don't agree with them. That said, they're not always helpful (why do I care now, if the lunar landing was faked?), but they are always worth reading about IMO. You can't be too informed. The main problem I have with this sort of thing is that the lack of knowledge people around the world have for Islam and Muslims in general. The media is so quick to tell us about "Muslim extremists" or "Islamic extremists," and if a person is convicted of terrorism and happens to be from the middle east or India or of Arab descent you can bet your bottom dollar that their race will be mentioned all over the news, whereas terrorists of a Caucasian background's race will be quietly smoothed over. Race is irrelevant in religion! Just because most followers of Islam are of Middle eastern descent does not mean they all are, and most importantly of all, just because the terrorists behind 9/11 were Islamic extremists does NOT mean that the entirety of the Islamic world holds the same views and beliefs as them. In fact all the Muslims I know abhor their actions as much as non-Muslims like myself - probably moreso, because their reputation is being sullied.
  • why is it so hard for bush to testify about 9/11 to an open committee? or alone like they had asked him to? don't you think he at least owed the families of the victims a simple transcript of any interview to put their minds at ease? instead he refused! if you think the most complex and well co-ordinated terrorist attack in the history of the United States was orchestrated from a cave in Afghanistan, then i'm sorry i ever respected your intelligence.
  • You have to understand that the people who claim that Bush engineered 9/11 (or any of the other atrocious theories) are very unintelligent and have to come up with these absurd theories to satisfy their desire for excitement. It gives them something to think about. Some are merely troublemakers who wish to incite controversy and angry answers. If these people were actually at the site of 9/11 they would still say that it was a "put up job".
  • How about the "eyewitnesses" who were inside the buildings who heard explosions going off ,but were not allowed to testify at the 911 commission hearings ?
  • It's going to be hard to tell now because I only just finished my sophomore year but: My GPA (unweighted) is 3.96 Weighted GPA is 4.38 Both frosh and soph. year I took 2 honors classes. This year I'm taking 2 honors and 2 AP classes. I should graduate with 5 math credits, 4 lab science, 4 English, 4 (maybe 5) Spanish, 2 French, 3 social studies, and 2 fine arts. I'm in my school's "gifted" program. I'll have done 3 or 4 years of cheer, depending on if I do it my senior year or not. I've also had a job since my freshman year. I don't have an SAT score yet but my PSAT was 163 which means my estimated SAT is 1630, is that bad? I want to major in international business and also Spanish, is that possible? Thanks
  • Your chances are good. You GPA is good. You should take the SAT or ACT whichever they require. You can have a double major but it will of course take you longer to graduate.
  • Wow woman that's an outstanding resume of your four years. I say proper now the one factor bringing you down is that act rating. I advocate you retake it and in addition take a look at the SAT, for a few individuals one or the opposite comes out higher. Try for no less than a 24 at the ACT. But instead of that I consider you're set and well to move. Best of good fortune:)
  • I don't mean this to be confrontational or insulting to anyone, but in my experience at my college campus, all the girls are the same. They all dress and act the same, do the same things, listen to the same music, their all cardboard cut outs and I find them so boring. It seems to be getting harder and harder to find girls who are different and interesting these days, their all such good little conformists. The sad part is, I go to a liberal arts school which is famous for its left leaning politics and diversity. But I get there and I see absolutely no diversity except me.
  • I'm a girl, and even I agree. I feel pretty lonely at school a lot of the time ha. They usually listen to whatever is currently on the radio, and ignore anything "old" because they think it isn't good. A lot of guys are like that too though. It's pretty crazy that your school is still like that despite being a liberal arts school. My major is in the liberal arts department, and I have yet to find many similarities with anyone. Always heard "College is sooo much different than high school" but the people there are just as boring, if not more boring, than those I knew in high school. It might be hard to find, but just know they ARE some interesting people out there. What kinds of music are you into anyway? I might "look" on the outside like anyone else at school, but I always feel like i should be living in another state or something. I have like no friends because of this but oh well. Keep your eyes peeled, and be open minded about it. Some "normal, cardboard cut out" girl might have one badass inside personality. I'm a girl, and to find another girl that genuinely loves horror movies is almost impossible these days ha. You seem pretty interesting just by your post, and it's great because you dont seem like a dick, which is another huge turn off about people now a days. I hope you find someone interesting to share some interests with, just don't exclude the whole population JUST YET :) EDIT: Gotcha, just by that I am going to guess your overall taste in music is pretty good. And that's awesome that you love horror movies, they don't get enough credit. They're going to butcher Texas Chainsaw Massacre by doing a 3D version staring the rapper Trey Songz :/ ..... Edit: Yes, like for example prom might (worst movie ever). You should go rent the Collector. I personally loved it. It had some really bad reviews, but I loved it and it only hit theaters for a week.
  • I think the main problem is in snap judgments we make of others.. Sometimes a persons true being is being suppressed as a way to protect themselves. We cannot know all about a person by the way they dress or based off of one conversation. I think the real problem is that you do not give people a chance, Also it is always perception. You may think you are different but I guarantee there is someone out there who thinks you're ordinary. It all depends on where you have come from and how you define uniqueness in another.
  • You're right, in a way. In my life I've met about 5 women who I would consider to be interesting . By this I mean they don't try and conform with most of society's expectations. It's probably more than likely it's just because you haven't got to know them, though. The more you get to know people, to more different and unique you realise they are. I can admit that the people who I considered to be the most interesting are the ones I knew the best. Don't judge by how they behave amongst the group, judge them by how they behave when it's one on one. The number of people who aren't afraid to go against the crowd is still minute, though.
  • Yeah the new school i moved to is the same. most of the guys are predictable and boring. i want someone different you know what i mean?
  • haha :) you have not met me :D people tell me I am sio much different from other people :D but, people are Adair of being different, it's just life
  • Because theyre women.
  • becoz dem b*tchez ain't in tha kitchen makin' you a sandwich
  • the "he's 18 he'kll do what he wants" is neever good. that's basically plea bargaining as a parent. if you really think he'll leave you because of what you think, you're probably a bad parent. i get you might not want to lose your kid but if you're a good parent then that shouldn't happen. gather the facts: how far away are you? is it a one hour drive or is it cross country 1-2 days drive or 3 hrs on a plane. closer the better how are they getting there? driving is okay for 5 hours at most, but don't trust them to do a 1 day drive or something like that. many things can happen on a road, and teenagers aren't exactly the most mature. is the grandmother responsible? will she be asleep / out of it most of the time or will she know how to put her foot down. how much money and such will they bring? i suggest using a debit/credit card, but only if your kid knows not to go on a spending frenzy. if not, then tell yuor bank to deny the card if there's insufficient funds. if he needs money BAD then he can always call and ask you to give him moree money because he splurged. How responsible is your son? do you trust your son to be responsible, or to drink and drive, get high, etc. What is the reason? if it's to see a n old friend or something then sure why not. but if it's to meet someone online, go to a dangerous concert (not all concerts are dangerous though) then maybe it's best if he doesn't go... So yeah just analyze the situation and decide on the best method. try not to let "he's my baby he needs to be within arm's reach" (better known as protective mommy syndrom :P) (spells PMS if you didn't get it..) but don't try to either be the "cool" parent or the "i don't want him to leave me" parent.
  • El Paso is actually really safe. You should make sure he doesn't cross the border. That is where the trouble is at.
  • enable him do it, yet i could warn him that person circumcisions do no longer look like those that are accomplished while the boy is somewhat one and grows into it. My husband had to have his accomplished as a scientific necessity. He replaced into extremely no longer a satisfied camper for a whilst. additionally Iet him understand that the great feeling in an uncircumcised penis with intercourse will now no longer be there. It took my husband an prolonged time to get used to the shortcoming of feeling as quickly as we had intercourse and easily by this his intercourse tension replaced into no longer as sturdy later on. If the girl won't be able to recover from it now hazard is there will be different issues that she will desire to alter approximately him too.
  • It would be a great experience for him. No one really knows if it is going to be safe or not. You should talk to his friends' grandmother.
  • Safer than most us cities, just let him go and have fun! Cause next year he will be 18 and it won't matter what you say, legally he can do what ever he wants.
  • it's not mexico, its texas. its totaly safe
  • Nope. Perry is simply not presidential material. His poor performance in the debates is evidence of a slow and lazy mind. Another mark against Perry: during the summer he was advertising the great Texas economy, but Texas currently has the highest unemployment in 24 years. He took credit for the good news; now he's married to the bad news.
  • Not at all. Anytime a presidential candidate says it's a mistake to be in the debates and therefore, he's not going to participate in the next few ones, then that individual doesn't deserve to be president. President Obama wasn't good at first either in the debates. But he didn't give up. He just kept on going until he became good at debating. And that's what good leaders do. They never give up.
  • In his 27 years in elected office Perry has participated in only four debates. He relies on an aggressive political campaign. He does not perform well on his feet when challenged in part because he has no real core beliefs. He's a social conservative which doesn't get you to far in a debate. He is just not presidential material. I think the oil industry must be very disappointed in his performance.
  • He wasn't presidential material when he was attending them.
  • not at all anyone that advocated succession form the Union should be barred from running for President
  • No, he's not. Truth be told, he's not even gubernatorial material.
  • owebama did not do some against the dems. he is president.
  • this is my first year at a university in texas. i have 24 credit hours from high school already from taking dual credit classes and by the end of this upcoming summer i will already be considered a junior in college. my grades consist of mostly B's. But i would like to transfer to UT this next year. what is the best way for me to get in? i feel as though my grades wont be sufficient or something. help!
  • Hey! http://bealonghorn.utexas.edu/transfer/admission/requirements/index.html This is a list of their requirements / recommended items in order to apply. A B average isn't bad at all, so your application is definitely worth reviewing. Coming in with 24 hours won't hurt you either. I think it shows that you are dedicated enough to drop your senior year in high school (which most people just goof off during) to advance yourself in college.You should still try to shine with those 2 essays they require. "You are encouraged to submit an expanded resume of information about academic, community, and work activities; include details that attest to your skills, abilities, experiences and background beyond those listed on your application. " If you were thinking you might not be accepted, you'll definitely need to make that resume stand out. Hopefully you worked while in college; this shows that you are able to take a pretty decent course load and still have time to work. Being an in-state resident will make it all the easier for you to get in, also. Be sure to call them and ask them to waive your application fee :) Most schools will do that if you ask. Good luck!!
  • I was let go in July and have been looking for months for a job, but I have medical resctrictions on me now and its hard for me to find work that I can do. I am at the point of losing my car, having my water and phone shut off and don't know what to do now. Have been to county for help but husband makes $20 more than is allowed, and my unemployment that I get goes to my car payment, however, I have gotten behind due to using it to by groceries and pay for minor bills, license, registration, daughters dentist, etc. So now I could lose it. Please tell me where I can get some type of help until I get on my feet. Thanks for any help you could tell me.
  • I feel for you. I'm living alone now and cannot work due to medical problems. I have no healthcare, no financial assistance and a small inheritance that is quickly going due to young adult children who still need my help on occasion. I might be able to qualify for disability and/or medicaid now but I still feel it is doubtful afterall Texas isn't even helping 2,000,000 children who have no healthcare at the moment. If you have two cars then perhaps you should sell that one for the payoff plus any difference (if there is one). Most government agencies are going to tell you this anyways. I know that is a hard thought but the payments probably aren't helping right now anyways and could actually make your credit worse. The city might help you with the water bill and the phone bill if you qualify or places like the Salvation Army, church organizations, christian charities, etc. Look for a resource helpline in your phone book and ask your neighbors if they know of some places that will help. Recognize though that these places are only a one time solution usually and they are usually very strict, very bureaucratic, and will make you feel like it is too much trouble to do. Apply for food stamps, medicaid for your children, and keep asking agencies for help. Apply for disability and if they turn you down (which they usually do the first, second, and possibly third time) then get a lawyer who deals with it and expect that the lawyer will want a percentage of your settlement. This is too much work for me to do alone so if you have your husband then get him to help you, it's very trying when you are ill to do these things. If you can work from home, look into telemarketing on the internet. There are some legitimate companies hiring work at home employees as they found that the foreigners that they had outsourced it to couldn't be understood by the customers. Here is an article that Yahoo had on it that might help. I figure it is legitimate since it was a Yahoo article. Customer Service Jobs by John Steven Niznik Work-at-Home Customer Service Jobs on the Rise According to a 2005 article by the New York Times, work-at-home customer service job opportunities are on the rise in the U.S. (Customer service jobs are also referred to as call center jobs.) The article indicated failed offshoring attempts due to language barriers, as one of the reasons why U.S. companies are now hiring more local representatives (agents) for work-at-home customer service jobs. By employing work-at-home agents, companies also reduce attrition in customer service jobs while saving money on office rent, utilities and equipment. Consequently, they're relatively eager to employ work-at-home agents and motivated to pass along some of their savings in the form of increased hourly wages.

No Experience Necessary. F/T or P/TPaid-Work-at-Home.com LiveOps Home AgentsUnprecedented agent quality, flexibility and value. Learn more.www.LiveOps.com According to the article, customer service representatives working in traditional call centers generally earn only $8 to $9 per hour, but work-at-home customer service agents generally earn $13 to $14. The advantages for agents employed in work-at-home customer service jobs are fairly obvious, especially for stay-at-home parents and physically-challenged people who need income. But perhaps a not-so-obvious advantage is that you can sweeten your net pay, if you're eligible to take deductions at tax time for business use of your home. Landing Work-at-Home Customer Service Jobs Work-at-home customer service jobs range from general call handling to providing technical support. To land such a job, you'll likely need some to all of the following basic essentials. The list is a summary of requirements excerpted from a few job descriptions and application forms from various sources. * A modern computer * At least basic computer skills * A fast Internet connection, such as a DSL or cable modem * A recent computer operating system release, such as the latest version of Microsoft Windows * Recent releases of Internet and email applications, such as Internet Explorer and Microsoft Outlook * A phone line dedicated to your home-based call center, with unlimited long-distance dialing * Good to excellent "people skills" to properly deal with customers * Education ranging from some high school to a college degree The hiring company might provide or reimburse you for some of the essential tools of the trade, depending on whether it hires you as an employee or independent contractor. (If hired as an independent contractor, you'll likely have to provide most to all of the essential tools for yourself.) The hiring company might also require you to successfully complete a customer service training course and submit to a background check, drug test or both. Experience in either a traditional or work-at-home customer support, technical support, help-desk or other type of customer service job might come in handy, but isn't always required. Natch, an updated, polished resume and interviewing skills are good things to have, just as they are when applying for any job. Finding Work-at-Home Customer Service Jobs According to the New York Times article, the following companies hire for work-at-home customer service jobs (to some degree and at some point in time). Check the employment sections of their Websites. But they might not list such jobs specifically as "work-at-home customer service jobs". (They'd likely be overwhelmed by job applications from unqualified wannabes if they did.) Consequently, you might have to inquire about or negotiate a work-at-home option. Regardless, make sure that you qualify for the job before applying. The need or desire to work at home is likely not enough by itself. * American Automobile Association * Dell * General Electric * JetBlue Airways * Office Depot * Staples The move to home-based call centers has also created opportunities for intermediaries. The following staffing firms, job banks and such, are just a few that include or specialize in work-at-home customer service jobs. * Alpine Access - At this writing, hires for work-at-home customer service jobs only in Arizona, Colorado, Texas and Utah, but will soon add more states. If not currently hiring in your state, they'll file your application for future opportunities. * CareerBuilder * National Telecommuting Institute - Nonprofit organization that helps disabled Americans train for and find telecommuting jobs, primarily work-at-home customer service jobs in the private and public sectors. You must prove your disability to land one of the jobs. * West Corporation - Recruits work-at-home customer service agents through West at Home * Working Solutions * Yahoo! HotJobs Also check other job banks for work-at-home customer service jobs. http://jobsearchtech.about.com/od/jobs/a...http://www.westathome.com/why/I'm not sure any of these would work for you since you are not in the US but you might at least search the concepts for your country to see if such jobs exist there. Here is a general search for those jobs. http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=Work+at...I wish you all the best of luck and I pray that you will get well soon.
  • First let me say that I am praying for you. I have not been able to work due to health restrictions too. If you were hurt on the job and denied workmen's comp, I would suggest seeing one of the injury lawyers that you see advertised on t.v. The initial consultation is free and they take on your case with the agreement that if they win, they get part of your back pay. I'm sorry that I can't be of much more help. The county, the state and the federal government doesn't care about the people like us who make $20 too much. I couldn't even get help for a hospital bill because I made $1 too much a month.
  • In this bad economy and massive job loss I heard of barter networks where people trade services. Considering the holidays are upon us I am looking for such a thing. Does anyone know a url or group that connects people who will barter their services? I am an artist and consumer credit officer and would like to offer my services in lieu of services I need.

I would REALY like to know EXACTLY where this guy is NOW, I am thinking I want to interview him for my book.
  • In 1994, prison overcrowding won Fordham a mandatory supervision release. But in July 1998, the parole was revoked after he moved to Indiana without permission and failed to report to his parole officer for three months. As a result, the then 29-year-old landed back in prison in the Ramsey II Unit in Rosharon. At this time, Fordham remains behind bars at the Vance Unit in Richmond.

  • I think she was murdered in 1985 if I remember correctly. The only reason his sentence was so short was because he witnessed his grandfather and some other family member get shot when he was younger. Not that it makes it right but it screwed with his head for sure. I think he was released in 98 but then went back to prison for something and I am pretty sure he was let out again last year or he will be let out this year. I'm from around Baytown so I kind of remember this, I was pretty young though.

  • I also lived in the same apartments the second time. Mary and I was in the same class. I can't believe he still walking the streets today.

  • The below paragraph is from the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education's website. Age Requirements: peace officers: 21 years of age, or 18 years of age if the applicant has received an associate’s degree or 60 semester hours of credit from an accredited college or university or has received an honorable discharge from the armed forces of the United States after at least two years of active service; You can attend a police academy at age 18. Most police departments require applicants to be at least 21 years old. Requirements to become a police officer vary, and how you become a police officer varies depending on the department. Visit the websites of the police departments that you might be interested in working for. Police department websites often provide information about their applicant requirements, about how to apply, and about their hiring process. Some relatively common minimum requirements include having at least a high school diploma or ged, being a citizen, being at least 21 years old, having a valid driver's license, and having no felony convictions. Some relatively common steps in hiring processes include application, written test, physical fitness test, interview, drug test, medical examination, and background investigation. Some departments will hire you and send you to the academy. In this case, you would already have a job and be paid while attending the academy. Some departments want to hire applicants that have already completed the academy. Some academies allow you to apply, and if you meet their requirements and are accepted, pay tuition to attend hopes of getting hired by a police department. Getting police officer jobs is becoming more and more competitive. You should get a college degree if you can. Getting a college degree is one of the best things that you can do. Getting police officer jobs is becoming more and more competitive. Do whatever you can to make yourself the best candidate that you can. For example, don't do anything illegal, maintain a good reputation, keep a good driving record, don't get bad credit, improve all of your communication skills as much as possible, practice to improve your observation and memory skills, and become as physically fit as you can. Best of luck!
  • You might want to take the exam first. Based on your results, you may get asked to join. However, most police academies want an associates degree first. No guarantees you will get a job after graduation either.
  • okay well go for it mate
  • The site is down so I could look anything over. They accept paypal so check to see if they are paypal verified.I did find out they are located in Kingwood Texas. Good chance they can be legit.The website was created in 2007 and actually expires in 2017. I think it's a small mom and pop shop and they handle everything themselves. I would use a credit card and buy from them. Worse case they do notsend you anything and then you can dispute charges. good luck. mx
  • I ordered some glasses from a popular fashion site. My order cost me about $15 including shipping. I waited about a week and 2 days, and got the package in the mail. I opened the package, and inside were some glasses. Very nice, almost similar glasses, but they were not the ones I ordered. So I was a little irritated that I received the wrong sunglasses. I kinda wanted to wear the exact one's I ordered with an outfit this week. Now I would have to postpone it (Theoretically). On the shipping label, it said in order to return anything I would have to go online (as the package did not come with a return label). So I went online to their return section, and found out that it would cost $5.95 to generate a return label. On the page it said in bold letters that their policy is that you have to pay for a return slip. You pay $5.95 by credit card, or by an online refund. I didn't want to do the refund. I simply wanted the glasses that I ordered. I was irritated at that point, and talked to the customer service on their LIVECHAT about this. I told them I did not want to pay an extra $6 for glasses that only cost me $15. That's almost like paying twice for one item. In a way... They weren't very cooperative, and they said I didn't have to use their labels if it were a problem. I could just "find my own way to ship it back to them then". So I was very angry. They then asked why did I want to return them, and I said because they were the wrong glasses. They asked which ones I received, and I told them I didn't know. So I looked up the brand on the box of the glasses and typed it on their site and found out something very interesting: The glasses that they accidentally sent me are $130 on their site! The glasses that I was supposed to receive were only $12! So...upon learning that, they instantly said "Ok, we've generated a free shipping label for you." lol, Ha.. So...they're not the glasses I wanted, but they're worth about $100 more! To keep or not to keep? That is the question. Wouldn't it be better to keep these and just order the cheaper glasses again? If you don't give a f*ck? Win win situation. :-) Let's be realistic. Sure it may be stealing, but they're based in New Jersey. I'm in Texas. They're a big company. It's not like they're going to send someone after me for some $130 glasses, that they accidentally sent me. Maybe a 10% chance, but I doubt it. Plus I could always say "I was mistaken, you guys did send the right glasses." Suckers. I'd kinda feel a little guilty, but not really. Don't tell me I'm a bad person. I kinda know this. Never said I was. I said, what would YOU do in this situation.
  • If you kept them, I don't think that would make you a 'bad person,' per se... But, 'I' would DEFINITELY return them (if it were me)...
  • If you want to become a police detective, you must first become a police officer. Requirements to become a police officer vary and how you become a police officer varies depending on the police department. Visit the websites of the police departments that you might be interested in working for. Police department websites often provide information about their applicant requirements, about how to apply, and about their hiring process. Some relatively common minimum requirements include having at least a high school diploma or ged, being a citizen, being at least 21 years old, having a valid driver's license, and having no felony convictions. Some relatively common steps in hiring processes include application, written test, physical fitness test, interview, drug test, medical examination, and background investigation. How you become a detective also depends on the department. Most departments require officers to work as patrol officers for at least 2 (usually more) years before being eligible to become detectives. If you want to become a detective, become the best police officer that you can. Maintain an excellent record and reputation as an officer. Becoming a detective can be a very competitive process. Many officers that want to become detectives won't be able to. It is great that you are considering college. Getting a college degree is one of the best things that you can do. Many departments require or prefer applicants to have college. Having a degree could help you get hired with some departments. Some departments pay their officers more if they have a degree. Having a degree could also help you get promoted during your career. Choose a major that interests you, that is marketable, and that could also be useful for police work. There are many good majors for police officers and people that want to become police officers. Computer science, a foreign language, law, and psychology are some examples. When choosing a major, consider what you might want to do if you decide not to become a police officer or if you can't become a police officer. Whatever major you choose, make the most of your time. Choose a school that is properly accredited, get the highest grade point average that you can, participate in a couple extracurricular activities, get a good internship, do some regular volunteer work, don't do anything illegal, and maintain a good reputation. Law enforcement officer pay varies, sometimes a lot, depending on the agency. Law enforcement officer pay can also depend on things such as years of service, rank, how much education an officer has, and overtime. When considering pay, you should also consider benefits and cost of living. Getting law enforcement officer jobs is becoming more and more competitive. Do whatever you can to make yourself the best candidate that you can. For example, keep a good driving record, don't get bad credit, improve all of your communication skills as much as possible, practice to improve your observation and memory skills, and become as physically fit as you can. Consider local, state, and federal jobs. Best of luck!

  • Ok, so I am active duty military and I am wanting a divorce. I have told my wife and she agrees, however I foresee some issues ahead. We have no kids, or shared real estate. We live in an apartment that I pay ALL of the bills for. Rent, elec, rented washer/dryer etc. She brought cats (that I'm allergic to) and they have pretty much ruined the place. Thankfully she did put a pet deposit down, not that I think she will get any back. So I am wondering if because I am the "bread winner" if I will for some reason have to give her money. I am asking because I don't have money to give. She's spent it ALL and also ruined my credit score which if it gets any worse I could lose my job in the service. She wants to go back to Maine, from Texas where I'm stationed. She is driving a car that's under my name that was JUST bought and she isn't making payments. She's just letting debt pile up because it's on my name not hers which is one of the many reasons for our divorce. I am quite new to this whole ordeal so I am trying to get answers. I don't want a messy or fight situation. I have no issue just taking what little property I do own and leaving or having her take her belongings and get LOST. She can have all of the "communal property" since it's all dishes basically. Can anyone with experience with this help? I am searching out lawyers currently since JAG on post doesn't do divorce which is odd since there's soooooo many in the military haha. Thanks in advance for the help given.
  • We live in the same apartment until this thing is final. It sucks yes, however she's an unmotivated childish lazy a$$ who can't even afford to feed her own pets so she can't go anywhere else. I can't stop paying rent. As stated I live here too AND if my credit score tanks I can be let go from the military. I don't want either.
  • divorce her how if everything in your name your not there, turn off elec,quit paying the rent who ever she seeing he take over because you are responsible, you will have to pay everything shell stay as long as you keep paying everything anything in your name you pay get out now you still have to build your credit back it only takes 6 months any more so stop paying now get a lawywer file legal seperation save yourself because she will drag you thur - - - - and back and think you still owe her what you give her she giving to some low life street trash thats the only people they can find,because she has you paying everything else the - - - - -

  • The extra community service, extra curricular activities, and the courses taken at a community college are quality indicators for your application to a four-year college. Your SAT if it is total for the three tests if it was 1770 is fine for admission to Texas A&M. However, if you only took two of the test,. math and critical reading and that total was 1160, those barely meet the minimum average scores for first year freshmen at that university. Fortunately, what the admissions center secretary told you is correct. The ACT score you earned would make you more than competitive. It would make you fully qualified for admission to the university. There are two routes you may consider in your question. If all the rest of your application, the rigor of your high school, the essay, the transcripts, personality, character, were done well. you could apply to Texas A&M, and you may have a 65:35 chance of being admitted. If that risk made you uncomfortable, you could prepare for the SAT by self-study using the Kaplan book or you could take a class in Preparation for the SAT. Taking the SAT a second time may improve your chances of be admitted by only about five percentage points to 70:30. You may also pick two backup universities in the event that you are overlooked by Texas A&M. That may make you feel better should the worse happen and your application was set aside. On the other hand, you may be willing to accept the risk that I and some other responders have suggested in our answers to your questions. The choice is yours. Good luck.
  • in case you turn in a finished application, you will get accpeted. Your "spazziness" is on blast precise now and that i circulate to desire you to relax down. end freaking out. The 1650 is pushing it on the decrease ingredient, yet TAMU is a state college that has the impressive 10% rule. in actuality i think of for us in the classification of 2013, it is 8%. as long as you do no longer throw away your senior 3 hundred and sixty 5 days, in case you % to settle for the inevitable acceptance letter coming your way in a pair of months, then you would be walking onto college station helpful adequate. according to risk i'm going to be certain you there. Adios.
  • You have a good shot. Worst case you would get Blinn team. First two years you go half to A&M and half to Blinn. Have a 3.0 after that and you are in fully to A&M. I think you have a good shot of getting in without Blinn team. Gig'em aggie class of 03
  • I'm in Texas and need 2 teeth cut out as soon as possible because they are infected & so very, very painful. I have tried all local programs, my state's 211 hotline, the research program in Austin, Donated Dental Services, United Way, Salvation Army, the dental credit card, and dental colleges. As impossible as it sounds, I cannot be numbed. This would have to be complete sedation, not just an office thing. It will be extensive & expensive and most insurance companies run screaming away from me, so, please, no insurance people trying to sell their plans here. Does anyone know of any kind of Oral Surgeons Group, like an Association or something, that provides free help like this? It's possible that I might have Trigemial Neuralgia as well, since my face spasms painfully, but it won't be diagnosed as such until these teeth are removed. I'm also periodically losing my vison temporarily, supposedly due to the infection which won't clear up even with repeated treatment. Anyone?
  • I have been to emergency repeatedly. Each time I'm given antibiotics and blocks (numbing shots in my mouth). These don't work on me. The infection may or may not go down for a little while, but it never goes away and neither does the pain. It's urgent because it's painful and obviously harmful to have an infection that won't clear up, but an emergency room doesn't do dental. The only types of dental in e.r. is if you come in carved up from a crash or something and even then, it is more of a life threatening thing or else is put off until you see your own doctor/dentist/plastic surgeon. I've spoken to hospital social workers and they won't do the surgery there. I've even had United Way contact several hospitals for me, all had the same response.
  • If there is a university hospital or clinic in your town, just walk in to Emergency. If your problem is really that bad and urgent, they HAVE to help you.
  • Free Oral Surgery
  • I am right there with you and have tried everything I could. Unfortunately I am not finding very much help. I have found several Oral Surgeons that will do the work but it cost anywhere from $10, 000- $30,000. There is no way I can afford that. I even have dental insurance but it will only cover about $1500. I have been told repeatatively that Dental Colleges will do this but every one that I have found are just as expensive as the regular Oral Surgeons. Maybe you can contact a local Church organization or medicaid. I am not "poor" enough for that at this point, unfortunately! I pray you better luck than I and I hope that maybe one of the last ones listed will be able to help you...your issues are less than mine at this point.
  • None,are free unless it's a scam. And sadly,if you don't have coverage/insurance it will be extremely difficult to pay for an oral surgery.
  • The other poster is 99% correct. There is one ABA law school that you can go to with only 90 undergraduate credits (hence not quite a bachelors degree), that is Cooley, however it is one of the worst law schools in the country. And to become any attorney it is the same requirements: Earn a bachelors degree (usually takes four years), earn your Juris Doctor (JD) three year degree full time, then pass the bar (in your case, the TX bar) and you are then licensed to practice any area of the law in that state.
  • All ABA-approved law schools require you to obtain a bachelor's degree before starting. Most people apply in the fall of senior year. DAs are just regular lawyers. All you need is a JD from an ABA-approved law school. Most DAs get substantial experience in criminal law through jobs and internships while they are in law school.
  • Since Bush has been president several senators have done a 180 on him. The only few who still persist in giving the man credit for doing a reasonably good job are McCain, Giuliani and Thompson. When Bush was elected I had a bad feeling about this Texas cowboy but I couldn't be certain that he would ruin the nation. This would have taken a lot of doing. But Bush slowly undermined the surplus and after 9/11 he really went ballistic. He has been going down hill in most matters, however, in all fairness to Bush there have been several programs that he has managed successfully. While I give the man credit for his perseverance and tenacity I do not care for the man's stubbornness and for his inability to admit that he or one of his cronies might have been wrong. He had many losers working for him, Rumsfeld being one of the biggest idiots in Washington. By the time Bush says goodbye to the White House America will be in recession and the next president will have his/her hands full getting us onto a level playing field. I'll tell you one man who did a 180 and that was Powell. He tried to play Bush's game but couldn't take it and had to resign.
  • More like a 360... I have always been "blue" but after 9/11 I tried my best to view Bush as a "strong leader" who would not let the perpetrators run free... But it seems my optimism was best kept for a democrat in '08... So I'm back where I started and I will never give the GOP the benefit of the doubt... they have done everything they swore not to over the years... even when it was most important. By the way - my mortgage taxes and fees just went up another $125... so I guess that's how Republicans "fix" the mortgage crisis...
  • There are definitely alot of ex-Republicans. Generally, they are still fiscally conservative (as the Republicans haven't really been all that serious about fiscal responsibility or limited government in recent years), but moderate-to-liberal on other issues. The Democrats need to do alot better job on economics (as this recent post on Daily Kos talked about; http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2008/1... ). The Republican Party is the party of extremist Christians, xenophobes, warmongers, and Big Business. It uses the fiscal conservatism and capitalism as code word for socialism in the service of their constituency (though there are a few Republicans who actually mean it when they say that they support the free market). The Democrats need to remove any perception of them being socialists (afterall, socialism is actually a conservative ideology) and to move to an economic position similar to that which the party originally held (back in the 1800s, the Democrats were defending Capitalism against the attempts by certain businesses to use the government to increase their own profits). The Democrats could easily justify some programs to make up for a century of big business distorting the natural distribution of wealth, but they also need to end the corporate welfare programs that permit this distortion (including the military-industrial complex that keeps getting us into wars). The Democrats have traditionally had a image problem on economic issues, but they can build a lasting majority (and possibly even get a supermajority in Congress) by supporting Capitalism and opposing both Socialism and Corporatism (which is all too frequently confused with Capitalism).
  • i assume it could have been extra exciting to make exciting of McCain. The comedians might have revived all those Ronald Reagan geriatric jokes from some time past while. Obama is basically a snorefest. Jacko and Ted Kennedy have been uncomplicated objectives until they died. GBTM suggested: "particular, seeing as how maximum entertainers are leftists and extra unwilling to make exciting of a democrat like Obama." have you ever forgotten former democratic president bill Clinton? He replaced into even much less complicated to make exciting of then George W.
  • All I know is I have shifted further to the Left during Bush.
  • I'm sure there have been many converts, yes. People get disgusted with the anti-Americanism and leave the Democrat party on a daily basis
  • Hillary did a 180.... But I think that has to do with the fact that she is running for president.
  • I am sure there are plenty. He has the lowest approval ratings ever. So many Republicans did change sides.
  • bush count down; 369 days and counting
  • Bush has. He ran as a conservative Republican and is now a liberal Republican and a fiscal socialist.
  • I don know where you got that, but I'm in the South and know plenty of info about everything that happened before Reconstruction. Some schools are turning bad though and don't want kids to learn about anything before then, like their Founding Fathers and all. I just finished South Carolina history and enjoyed every minute of learning about the Civil War. Next year is American History!
  • They don't. Believe it or not, the south teaches from the Indians to Columbus, The Revolutionary War, etc. We are purty dang educated down here. Even enough educated to know that you spelled except incorrectly, it should be accept.
  • I got a DUI so I thought it would be best to have representation. This was a first offense, my BAC was .12 and I refused a checmical test. There were no injuries or accidents. To me this seems pretty straight forward. My lawyer didn't get the charge reduced, he got me DUI classes, a couple days of community service and I have to pay a fine. Is this not what I would have got if I just showed up to court myself? I understand there could have been more jail time but I feel with the facts what they are I would have received credit for time already served. Also, he did not negotiate a work restricted license, He said I was not eligible for it because I refused the chemical test. Is that true?
  • I don't know what state your in, but you got off lucky. Here in Texas you would of done jail time, fine, comunity service, and lost your license. Worse is the sr22 insurance premiums
  • Dear Friend. You can get the best DUI Lawyers from USALegalCare.com. You have to pay just $1 a Day. I had a great experience with these people. They are simply great. Go to: http://www.usalegalcare.com/Typical_DUI_...All the best
  • I will add this: his advice regarding the work-restricted license would be correct in most states, so there is a better than decent chance that his explanation is 100% correct.
  • You'll need to tell us where this happened, as each state has different laws and procedures. Post your state and maybe a lawyer or paralegal from there will see this.
  • O.k so I have a friend who is married but seperated, they still live in the same house but sleep in seperate rooms, his wife called the cops on him 2 weeks ago acusing him of hitting her, because he sold his posessions to give her money to move out but she instead went on a major shopping spree and he was yelling at her so she decided to call the police and say he hit me just to get him to shut up. So the cops get there and arrest him, mind you she didn't have any marks on her. She later withdrew her aligations but when she found out that she could face charged for wrongfuly giving police the wrong information she when ahead and allowed my friend to be charged. He now faces court for something he did not do, his wife is manipulative and a total *****. Will he face jail time or be given a warning, Please help he in a bad way and I want to be able to help him. He has had to sell more items to be able to afford legal fees. He is not abusive at all everyone knows that he is not that way, We all his friends have offered to give caracter referance to give to court but I'mnot sure if that will help him or not,they had been together for 10 years and married for 1 so why does she now acuse him of such a thing. We all susspect that she married him is trying to milk him for as much money as she can. She told him before they sperated that she has a boyfirend and wants to be with him and not my friend. My friend is a weak man and not somone who will stand up to her. So any legal advice would be very helpful. Thanks for your help. 10 point for best answer.
  • hey I feel for your friend. i had the same exact situation before and it didn't turn out to good. I took it to court and thought the law would be on my side but I was very sadly mistaken. i had to do the maximum that there is here in Texas which is one year county jail for the class a misdemeanor. Even though there were no marks on her I was still found guilty and lost everything. While I was in jail she didn't keep payments on the house so it was foreclosed and my car was sold by her as my clothes. Luckily my mom came all the way from mexico to pick me up on my release and here I am with bad credit but a good job and my own place. She on the other hand is living from place to place wearing out her welcome everywhere she goes. Now keep in mind that I had a house party when I supposedly beat her and I was still guilty. So get a good lawyer and pray that you can prove her wrong. try some recording methods or videotape would be better.
  • It's going to be very hard for her to prove this without proof. Your friend also needs a lawyer and if he hasn't moved out already, the court might force him to and give her an order of protection. I highly doubt he will see any prison time.
  • My ex roommate abandoned our apartment lease. I took her to court and was awarded judgement for payment. She has not paid a dime of what she was court ordered to pay. What can I do to collect the money she owes me? (I am in the state of Texas.) Can I take her back to court for non payment? Thanks in advance for any advice!
  • Get a lawyer and have her wages garnished. Then sue her again for the attorney fees. Edit: If that is the case then contact the local sherrif. In some states, hopefully Texas too, you can file a complaint with the Sherrif who will serve a debtor with notice. They will either be taken back to court and if they don't comply within 30 days or so the Sherrif can get a bench judgement to seize and sell any and all property until the debt is settled. In other words, Sherrif is going to take her crap and sell it at auction to the point your money is returned to you. Give them a call and see what they say. Other than that worst case scenario is that judgement will forever show up on Their credit report so tell her good luck with that until she pays up.
  • you can take her back to court for not completing the court order for payment, maybe they will throw her in jail for contempt of court. other than that--since it's texas, all you can do is keep trying to collect from her. just stay within the guidelines of debt collection (no more than 3 times a day, only between the hours of 8am and 8 pm)
  • You will need to file for wage garnishment so you can collect directly from her paycheck before it reaches her.
  • Umm.... Successfully turning the campaign into a morality issue rather than one of competence? Uniting the K street lobbyists and his cabinet to make it easier for corporations to buy our government? Giving the extremely wealthy tax breaks that Reagan only dreamed of? Empowering the chickenhawks of the New American Century to make some of the worst foreign policy decisions this country has ever seen? Claiming to be a "vietnam era vet" when he saw only two weeks of duty in the national guard, flying over Texas before going awol and somehow getting an honorable discharge for it? And then raising false issues about an actual vet in order to try to take the military vote? Plunging us into a terrible, needless stupid war that is costing us billions of dollars and thousands of lives? Taking credit for lowering the cost of business through golbalization, yet blaming Clinton and the democrats for domestic job loss as a result of globalization policies? ...in all seriousness I can think of nothing good about the man. If you see a restoration of morality and dignity, then you clearly are more comfortable with a government that is in bed with private interests than in bed with their interns. I don't mind if the leaders of my government have mistresses, that's their private business. But I do get very angry when they can be bought by influence peddlers such as Abramoff, Enron and Pat Robertson.
  • "reduced the terrorist network by 70%" Um Leogirl? Where did you get that "fact"? Because there was an intelligence report out, which I'm sure you heard about on the news, that stated that there are MORE terrorists now than since Bush took office. If you didn't hear that report then go Yahoo! or Google it. Frankly, I'm not sure what he'll be remembered for. It is true, as a previous answerer stated, that there have been no more terrorist attacks on US soil since 9/11. Which is definitely good! Have to count our blessings when we get them. Conservatives like Roch Cop argue that Clinton caused a recession and Bush is fixing it while Liberals tend to argue that Clinton had a surplus and Bush is the recession. Go to http://www.ppionline.org/ppi_ci.cfm?knlg... to see a great comparason chart of Clinton Vs Bush. "... Bush will have to perform a careful dance, with 2.4 million jobs lost since Febuary 2001, a month after he took office." Bush hasn't done well in the economy, in my opinion. I think he can be best remembered for that which he spoke the most about. Natl. Security and the Iraq War. History books will probably state that he went into Iraq, there were growing feelings of not wanting to be there, etc.. etc... The history books will speak loosely, I'm sure, about the polarization of America and how movies like Farhenheit 9/11 came out and other movies on the other side fought back. Truthfully, it won't be a straight shot for him. The economy could be shown as Average at best and the War in Iraq has failed in many ways. Though, on the plus side: Iraq DID have an election. I guess I'm torn. I know I don't support Bush but I'm trying very hard to find something good to say. I'll put this question on watch, I suppose.
  • Have your children remeber him for the $4.5 trillion of debt that he dropped on their backs (so far). Remember, your kids and mine will be paying the price of Bush's misadventures and our current economic recovery for decades to come. Interest on the national debt has gone from 10% of our national revenues to 20% since 2000. Think what your kids' presidents might have been able to accomplish with an additional $250 billion a year.
  • Your too untimely, via calling absolutely everyone President, excepts the prevailing one. Obama, can conquer what President Bush has executed, even with the indisputable fact that that's gonna take time and cooperation from all . with a bit of luck, he will purchase himself some Hip/waders, to conflict with the aid of all of the overflow of the Cess Pool. and a few nostril plugs.
  • We may not know Bush's legacy for another 20 years. If we succeed in restoring order in Iraq and find bin Laden, history will look back upon Bush in a very positive light.
  • Unfortunately, Bush is not a "great" President, or even a Mediocre one. Historically, he is the least liked and respected President of all time, so far, even surpassing Carter. Thats not insulting, its based purely on historical fact. Today Bush has a 69% disapproval rating. His lack of success is even more disturbing when one considers that the three branches of government were controlled by his political party at the time. Bush has not made any significant contributions to national history, but will be remembered infamously as a loose cannon President who squandered his political capital. Not being cruel, just honest. I am a fiscally-conservative moderate Republican, by the way, so keep that in mind before hurling insults or reporting me for somthing.
  • He was elected in 2000, took office in 2001. reduced the terrorist network by 70% No child left behind, which is for the children not the lazy *** teachers that only work 6 months of the year and whine about more money. Money has never made anyone a better employee. Teachers apparently don't get that. More funding for social programs than any other administration He is rebuilding our military after clinton took us down to dangerous levels tax cuts Afghanistan and Iraq More security at home
  • Katrina, Iraq, eviscerating federal protection agencies like FEMA and EPA--giving wrong information to the citizens that were depending on him (i.e. the workers, rescue personnel and the people of the City of New York that the air post 9/11 was safe.) These are a few of his accomplishments.
  • I wish I could think of anything great he will be remembered for. His dad, a great and moral man, is trying desperately to save his legacy in history, but I think it is too late.
  • dear ignorant slave of the 'great U.S of A' - bush will be known for his masterminded plan of killing his own people in the twin towers (incase u didnt know, those planes were NOT hijacked by arabs, they were remote controlled by the american government), and then blaming it on Osama, (bush does millions of dollars worth of business with the Bin Ladens). he will also be remembered for 'looking for weapons of mass destruction' but in fact, the pig was only interested in the OIL!! and so the saga continued until he took it upon himself to take Saddam to trial and then give him the death penalty. wake up and smell the coffee! there are some of us with brain cells out there.
  • Another puppet, it's the crazy jerry show. Jerry always has a dilemma to deal with, does he hire a real coach (like Parcells or Jimmy) and be successful but they get the credit or does he hire a puppet and take credit or lay blame. His ego is as big as texas so he hires puppets and the team declines to average or worse.
  • It's been common knowledge for almost two years now that Jason Garrett will be filling into the head coaching role once Wade's tenure in Dallas is up. Me personally, I think Garrett is heavily overrated, and his emphasis on the passing game over their running which is far better is flat out silly. You play to your strengths and Garrett has yet to do that with this team, especially this year.
  • Gruden - The club needs to revamp that offense and a fiery Chucky may get things cranked up.
  • Shanhan... Good coach and friends with Jerry Jones.
  • I would say that Shanahan would take this job if offered. He would be a good fit too.
  • Jerry....because he owns the team.
  • My GPA, is bad its around 2.4 right now. I'm currently off on summer vacation and i'm going to be a junior this coming school year. I signed up for my junior year for AP Chemistry, AP English III, and AP U.S. History, its my first time i'm going to take AP classes, and for my senior year i'm planning on taking AP classes too, if i do good for now on do you think i'll be able to raise my GPA to a like 3.8? The past two years ive only taken normal level classes and slacked off and now i regret it. I would like to go to either University of Houston or University of Texas at Austin, but do you think i'll make it? So please help me by answering my questions and giving me advice.
  • If you can get your grades up, yes, you can get in with your goal GPA. You can get into some schools with a GPA of 3.0 I think, although I don't know about the schools you named. That being said, here's how to find out how likely you are to reach your goal. Take a GPA calculator <>http://www.back2college.com/gpa.htm> and play around with possible grades. Say that you think you can get an A in english but history you'll have problems with so lets go with a B-. And see what you need to do. REmember to include your current GPA of 2.4 with the number of credits you have taken total. Another thing you can figure out is use math to figure out what you need on average. Last time I tried to show someone how to do something like that online, she didn't get it. But you're basically figuring out your average of right now compared with your average of a 3.8. Just as a side note. If you are very serious about getting into school, It is usually a good idea to keep working on your hardest subjects during the summer. So if you're bad in math, do some of the math problems from your current grade. It WILL give you a headstart next year. Hope that helps. You have two years, so you should have plenty of time to turn things around.
  • how are you gonna pass all those AP classes when your gpa is 2.4...
  • I live in Texas. I am 18 but I only have a permit and no license. I'm not allowed to miss any more than 1 day of summer school or I don't get credit, and my parents are in colorado. I tried calling some people to see if they can take me but they all have other things going on so I really have no choice. If I get caught or (god forbid) get in a wreck or something, how severe will my punishment be? I'm out of options so I just want to know what I'm dealing with here. I am also a very good driver, I'm not endangering anyone, I just fear that I might accidentally bump someones car and then what will happen?
  • Thanks Ian and James. Your answers were helpful. Panthor you idiot, you think if I could just walk there I wouldn't have already thought of that? Or do you really believe that you are the ray of logic that comes out of the ******* sky and suddenly I'm just going to be like "OHHHH YEAH! Why didn't I think of that?" It starts at 6:00 and its like 16 miles from here. You know what time I'd have to start walking?
  • Make sure you have insurance on the vehicle. regardless of who's name it's in or who pays it just make sure it is Insured. If you get into a small fender bender or something they will not ask for your license , just your insurance info. (unless its a super bad accident that firefighters and police need to come, then your screwed). Just go the speed limit, stay alert, and you probably will be fine. Look into completing summer school online, or check out K12's website. It may make this all easer. Just use caution if you do this. I don't know what the penalty is, but you probably will just get a fine and the vehicle towed. PROBABLY won't get arrested.
  • 3 words TAKE A BUS!! or lets try these WALK or lets even try this find someone else going to summer school an get a ride, ride your bike, i live in texas too, get caught without a license . lets see the car can be towed an put in the inbound, only a licensed an insured driver can get it out, the fees are high, get into a wreck you can be sued, if caught you could just get a ticket an told to get a licened driver to take the car home,
  • Likely arrested and fine might not be able to get license. Depends on a lot if factors. I would dress my best and try to look professional. If you look like a thug, juggalo or hippie, your chances of getting pulled over go up tenfold.
  • a lot. so dont get caught
  • a lot.
  • Boston was ranked the "drunkest city" in the U.S! What do you guys think? I have to say, this is pretty accurate. I live in South Boston, which consist single hot men, and of course 95% are Irish- Italian, do the math . You can find a pub here on almost every corner. And, snowing or sunny you know damn well, every bar is packed. Not to mention all the colleges we have here in this wonderful City, and all of the sports defiantly contribute to the heavy drinking! Gotta love it, but sometimes it's awfully annoying, I just want to relax certain nights, you know? Boston makes it impossible.
  • Yeah, S.F. fell from 3rd to 22nd. Good job I guess San Fran. I'm little disappointed though. Ewwwww, Irish and Italian people are some of the worst looking people. Boston is kind of known for not being a good looking city. I'm Irish too. I mean the Northeast outside of New York isn't really a good looking place. I don't like the South, but Texas has some hotties, and I hate to admit it. I feel completely unbiased in my opinions. I've seen Boston. Not a good looking city. I also pride myself on giving credit where credit is due. Besides it's not just me who thinks so, it's a well known stereotype of that region.

  • I have used the following Dermatologist for many years and take my kids to him as well. I know this isn't SouthWest, but if you haven't yet found someone, it may help anyway. William Waidhofer, MD 10611 Grant Road Houston, Texas 77070 (281) 894-7777 Between Jones Road and HW 249, it's a tiny building (a converted house) and has very little parking so it can be easy to miss. Through the years, he has helped us with a variety of skin conditions, both minor and serious. He's thorough, friendly, has a friendly staff, and will even squeeze you in if it's an emergency. He does not file insurance, however, nor does he accept payment by credit card...personal check and cash only so if you make an appointment, remember to bring enough cash or your check book. I don't remember what an initial consultation costs but I usually pay $75 for a visit (follow-ups for some of our conditions have been at no charge). As you can tell, I really like him and recommend him highly. I also feel confident that you will have a positive experience this time. Whomever you choose to see, please don't delay any longer. You obviously have a concern and anything that brings on concern should never be delayed.

  • This is sort of a follow up to another question that I've asked. I had posted one about me getting a job in Texas, where my ex had relocated. However, I ended up working for a very big company in Houston, 3 hours from Austin, where he was relocated. I'm very happy right now, dating again and everything, and my life is going great. However, Houston is turning out to be a little less desirable than I'd thought, as it's way too big and not as fun as I'd hoped. I've visited Austin a couple of times for ACL and other random trips, and I absolutely LOVE the city. It's so fun, it's got so much to offer, it has UT.. fantastic. My company also just opened another site that they're looking to populate to get a tax credit from the city so I could just be included in the head count. The reason why I'm posting up this question is for the anonymity; none of you know me and that's what's great. So this is what's up: like I said, my ex lives in Austin, but I really don't want anything to do with him. I want to move there, mainly because of my experiences there and because it might be a good career move (I want to get my MBA eventually). Does it look bad? I wouldn't COMPLETELY mind staying in Houston, but knowing that there's a much more fun town with that opportunity and possible job growth right there, it might be a good career move to go. I'm not sure how to approach this, or if my thinking is completely off base.. I just want to do what's best for me, but at the same time, I'll admit, I don't want to look like a completely desparate doofus. I've made a pro/con list for each city, and while Houston's seems to balance itself out, Austin's pros are completely outweighing the cons.. Can I just go? Is that legit? Am I being stupid second guessing myself? Thank you! :)
  • Austin is not the greatest, because it's still Texas, but it's better than Houston. Houston's pretty boring. But Houston probably has more jobs.
  • Not a travel question [there IS a "Relationship" section, I think], but.... It's hard to maintain a long-distance relationship, but if both parties are determined to do so, then it can be done. Problem is, you're both very young and you're going to be in an environment where you will be meeting lots of interesting new people, some of whom you may be interested in getting to know a lot better. Part of the reason one goes to college is to broaden the horizons, meet people with different ideas and points of view, and to learn more about yourself. Odds are that a high-school relationship isn't going to endure, so don't limit yourself by failing to get involved in activities at school and spending all your time mooning over someone you can't be with. High school friends DO tend to drift apart; that's just the way things go. Good luck to you in your college career.

  • So all of my friends are practically begging me to apply to UT Austin, but I'm afraid that I will get denied. I know the rule has changed from top 10% to top 8%, which is good. So if you are in the top 10% and you score a low SAT/ACT score, you probably won't get admitted. These are my stats: GPA: 3.42 (will definitely be 3.5 at the end of the semester) unweighted, and 4.13 weighted Ranked in the first quarter SAT Biology: 670 ACT: 26 (first attempt...retaking in December. Aiming for 28-32) Extracurriculars are good...don't want to list all of them but Teen CERT, HOSA, NSHS, etc. Volunteer for Habitat for Humanity Distinguished Honors Graduate Have 12 semester hours college credit with 4.0 gpa Hooks: African American, diagnosed with Glycogen Storage Disease V a few months ago (not really bad...just can't run marathons or lift weights), attend an exceptional magnet school (which will hopefully explain for my low gpa and rank), premed/EMT program...have hours and hours of clinical experience....Lifeguard for 2 years....went to England with people to people student ambassadors...and I am a 3 year grad (I am graduating as a junior)... What are my chances (low, medium, high)? Thanks!
  • Everyday I feel more and more like I should have just stayed at my home campus rather than going to a magnet school. It killed my gpa and the chances I had of getting into a good university. :/ If I would have stayed at my home campus, I would have been in top 3%...I know because freshman year, before I went to my current school, I was. What about Texas A&M?
  • Chances are low to medium - sorry. Go ahead and apply, but also have some backup schools. Find schools in Texas likely to admit you and apply to a few more in addition to Austin Free online college search services [and indicate a major if you have thought of one]: collegeboard.com princetonreview.com cappex.com
  • So my mom forcefully makes me and my family move from Texas to California. We've been in California ever since last Wednesday and I'm still not enrolled into a school yet. And we don't even have a house yet. Apparently, she has bad credit because of me and my brothers and sisters. I know that if she doesn't enroll us into school soon, she can go to jail, but she doesn't understand that, and I have been stuck in my grandmother's house ever since Wednesday watching my brother and sisters, and my mom has barely be over here at all. And she's telling me I'm being selfish and self-centered by crying all the time. So what should I do? If I'm not enrolled into school soon, I fear that I'm going to flunk my junior year and being trapped in my grandmother's house has made me supremely depressed.
  • If you are over 16, truancy laws no longer apply. If you are under 16, yes she legally has to enroll you in a school. You can just call your local police department and tell them your mom is forcing you to be truant. If you are over 16, you can always report her for your younger brothers and sisters. Keep in mind you all may be taken out of her custody and placed in different homes if they determine her to be unfit to be a mother. But most likely, all that will happen is that a police officer will stop by and tell her she has to get her kids into school. As long as where you are staying isn't disgusting and unfit, and as long as she follows through and gets everyone enrolled, there should be no further police visits or any trouble.
  • You are a child. You cannot get into legal trouble- but your mom can. Your mother is the one who has a responsibility to ensure that you have a roof over your head, adequate living conditions and make sure that you are going to school. I would call up the school district in the area and try to enroll yourself. Obviously, you can't do it, but it will alert the school and they may help you.
  • That's very bad. If your mother is actually putting off enrolling you in a school there are serious consequences. You WILL fail your junior year if enough time goes by.
  • go to the local school and learn. they might let you sit in pending enrollment.
  • I am a parent of four, I have limited funds under $2000.00 in which to move with. I am not afraid of hard work but it must be 1st or 3rd shift. I am looking for a place to relocate that has nice surroundings and is affordable my family is very diverse and happy. I do not mind getting assistance from the government in order to start me off, because I do have bad credit do to foreclosure. WHERE Might I go that would assist me and my family better off than here in MICHIGAN :) (please detail)
  • harris county texas. Great programmes for medical and other assistance. nice weather, nice people, nice economy. u will be fine.
  • Exactly what are you trying to ask...a place for work or just a place period. A great place in Michigan is Howell. (between Detroit and Lansing) Wonderful surrounding have that small town/countryside felling. Another good place is Macomb Township. A suburb of Detroit really nice....can be expensive though. Outside of Michigan im not sure...Where do you live in Michigan right now if you dont mind telling? Wherever you end up good luck!!!!
  • I've been told to go to a local court house, if its true, what do I need to bring? do they have it online? I have bad credit and I know I won't be able to pay the $250k and up in this area, but I can't stand living in a room with my husband at my sisters house anymore!! I've looked into HUD homes and went to vhda.com and I wanted to talk to some agent and see the tax sale properties or pre or foreclosure homes. Thanks for any info you can give me!
  • Foreclosures and pre-foreclosures are handled differently in each state. In Texas we have listings 21 days in advance of which properties are due to be foreclosed upon on the first Tuesday of the month and any body can go pick up the listing. Many realtors do that for people for whom they are "buyer's representatives". I would suggest contacting the Keller Williams offices in the area and find out if they have an agent who would be willing to be your buyer's representative, letting them know the types of properties in which you are interested. Especially on foreclosures it is important to do a title search to see if there are any existing 2nd liens, mechanic's liens, etc. Standard disclaimer: this is not legal advice and cannot be considered legal advice as I am not licensed to practice law in any form. Please contact a real estate lawyer in your area for legal advice regarding your specific situation.
  • Lets seem at it like this. Every activity calls for a mixture of advantage and or gear. I use a laptop, have LAN, e-mail account, cubicle, and so on. And for a realtor your vehicle is your workplace, assembly location, and patron trip bus. And for the reason that you might be handling a loved ones of 4, chubby humans, aged, and so on, you ought to have a designated measurement vehicle for in simple terms realistic explanations. And in the summertime in case your purchasers are out and in of the vehicle five instances on a sizzling day, they will choose AC that blows bloodless. So it isn't that you want a modern Mercedes, but it surely will have to be blank, have well tires and run competently. I constantly questioned if a satisfactory mini-van might be well vehicle for a realtor. OK facet if the activity is also photograph. Again why does any individual in an workplace activity purchase a $500 swimsuit or $2 hundred footwear, photograph. A lot of listings are given established at the corporation, the advertising suggestion, and so on. because the directory agent traditionally does no longer promote the estate. One different piece of recommendation, it kind of feels you're already watching on the terrible. If a larger vehicle is wanted, then attempt to improve to a top miles Buick or Lincoln, usually no longer too steeply-priced however appears well. If you cannot proper now then attempt to paintings with what you may have. It is anything you'll triumph over. If you'll get the customer within the proper residence they'll be glad even supposing you force a Yugo.

  • Everybody thinks that way. I was accepted to 3 ivy league schools (Cornell, Columbia, Yale) but still did not feel that an ivy was the place for me, so I chose a small liberal arts college instead, and loved it! I always somewhat regretted not going to Cornell (as that would have been my fist choice), but I loved my college life so much that that didn't really matter. Both my parents and my high school guidance counselor told me to go to an ivy because it was a good level for me, but there were plenty of classes I struggled with at the liberal arts school. I wound up doing my grad work at Cornell after I finished a BA in sociology and psychology and now I teach psychology at Cornell. Both while doing my grad work and now teaching at Cornell, I was glad I chose a smaller non ivy league school because I saw/see how much stress some of the students are under and how rigorous the work load is for many of them. By choosing the school I did, I graduated with honors and all that jazz, but I had a good time on top of that. Undergraduate school should be a time for students to explore themselves and figure out the kind of professional they want to be, but I feel that the ivies force students to become professional too soon. I'm sorry, but forcing a freshmen to take 21 credits their first semester because they want to double major is a little overzealous (and some of the advisers do that). Long story short, the grass isn't always greener on the other side, and it is human nature to be doubtful of one's own decisions, especially for something as important as college. Everything has pros and cons, and if you're happy where you are, then stay there. Only transfer if you're having legitimate problems. Good luck!
  • You will always wonder what it will be like to go to the other school (I got into 4 schools and already graduated, but I still wonder). You might regret not choosing the other school when times get tough, but times will get tough no matter where you go. I can't say which school is better for you, but the best way not to regret it is to work hard and get involved. (Find some school activities and make new friends, and take classes that you like.) You will not regret it and you will feel like you made the right decision if you use all the opportunities you have at the school you chose.
  • Female figures, in particular those representing Liberty and Justice are often shown bare breasted in classical art just as male heroes are shown in standing or fighting poses because 1. Human bodies look good. 2. Artists prefer to show muscles or body shape to showing clothes. 3. They didn't have the stupid Victorian attitudes that Americans have taken to an even greater extreme to be ashamed of the body and credit it with sexual aggression and/or so much sin we can't even teach about the human body in the classroom, thus having the highest teen pregnancy rate in the world and even worse in Texas where I live which teaches only that idiot abstinence only education. abstinence only education

  • Too bad Greenspan didn't hit the trail long before. The dropping of the interest rate to avoid a recession just prolonged the agony. A 1/4% here, a 1/4% there, here a 1/2 % then another 1/4% was for the birds. Robbing peter to pay paul, but you got to give the man credit, he sure knew when to "bailout", no pun intended. Honestly, what is the best capacity for Rep. Paul. As president, the powers that be would never allow him to run the show, the Congress would be the same. As a representative, he has been pegging what's going on for decades and no one did a thing. I would what would his best position be. At this point you and both know, but for the future. Texas is one of the biggest states, so he has that power behind him. Yes it is off some, reminds me of those old foreign karate movies where the hero would say I am going to defeat you and the other guy would say something, but both of the actors mouths would move for about a minute, ha,ha.
  • Greenspan is a conundrum. Extremely intelligent. Understood the dangers of a fiat currency. Then, once at the Fed, ignored those dangers. Still claimed to trust the markets, even as he manipulated the money supply. Despite his intellect, he now blames the free market which he, of all people, should know can't be free: -- if the fingers of the "invisible hand" are artificially swollen, -- if their muscles are manipulated to twitch with unnatural electrical pulses, -- if a finger perceived as feeling some pain is numbed with anesthetics -- if a finger that appears too weak is given steroids, a personal trainer, etc... A free market requires the freedom to be strong, to be weak, to feel pain, feel the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat and whatever comes its way. Thank God Dr. Paul understands this. ...
  • "You can't devalue or debase a currency - some people will be hurt more than others" Can we say Obama's economic policies in the long run -- failure, according to the CBO and detrimental to the very people he's supposed to represent. And they're lining up to worship and defend him...it's sad. www. cbo. gov I like Paul...smart guy. Maybe this confrontation had something to do w/ Greenspan later saying he probably did more harm to the economy in the long run than any good he did in the short by manipulating rates and subsequent activity in the markets. Abolish the Fed!
  • Ron Paul just gives me more hope to serve alongside him in Congress. We need to remove these banking thugs away from power.
  • Dr. Paul tells it exactly like it is. Words cannot express the respect I have for that man.
  • uh, why is greenspan not in jail???
  • Most US universities will accept transfer students after as little as one term at a JC. It's only certain universities that want you to have more than X credits. Were your grades in high school okay, or bad? How were your SATs? Or did you not take them? The answers to those questions will help determine what colleges you could get into now. For example, let's say you didn't do that great in high school, but you did all right. Your SATs are so-so or non-existant. You're doing okay in JC. In my region, you could possibly get into: Dean College, Curry College, Dominican College (NY), Mercy College, Dowling College, Five Towns College, Molloy College, Regis College, Southern New Hampshire University, Wheelock College, and quite a few more. I don't know where you are, so I can't recommend specific colleges to you. But some around the US that I think you should check out, in addition to those that I listed, are Kent State U, Daytona State College, Eastern Kentucky U, U Texas El Paso, U Texas San Antonio, Northwestern State U Louisiana, Southeastern Louisiana U, Southeast Nazarene U, U Akron, U Toledo, Youngstown State U, Wayne State U, Vincennes U, U Houston Downtown, King College, Weber State U, Utah State U, and South Dakota State U. A few of these are open admissions, but the rest aren't hard to get into. All are worth checking out. And there may be more in your area. These are all real, accredited colleges that offer quality educations. It's just that they aren't particularly hard to get into. I mean, Weber State lets in 100% of applicants. UT San Antonio lets in 99%. Neither school sucks.
  • Hello You would have to go to the company that holds the Mortgage on the property with the "Seller". The company will insist on checking out your finances and will only let you do so if you are approved Andy C
  • it's not like a car, you can't assume payments. there is something they call "lease to buy" but you'd need a big downpayment and a balloon payment down the way and any deposit you make they get to keep it. because of the poor economy which will probably hang around for another ten years, well although the interest rates may be low well a downpayment of 20%is still required, plus houses in TX have increased in price considerably because of the influx of computer nerds. What people are doing is renting. So I suggest you just rent.
  • 1) Most mortgages aren't assumable. 2) You can't qualify for a loan without a decent credit score and adequate income. 3) Even if you qualified for the loan and could find someone with an assumable mortgage, you still have to cash out the owner for their equity. They aren't just going to walk away from their house and get zero dollars for it if it has gone up in value or they have paid down the loan balance.
  • I am a sophomore at the Army and Navy Academy. I am an ESL student and this is my second year in the US, but i am an American citizen who lived all his life out of the US. I am repeating my sophomore year because i did not get enough credit in my freshmen year because i took it out of the US. I am a 4.0 student, i never got a B in my life. I joined 2 clubs this year( Harvard Model Congress and Interact club). By the time a graduate i will have 6 math classes, 4.5 English, 3 history, 4 science, 1.5 photography including half a year of teacher assistance, and 2 year of Spanish. I know 3 language's. I have 2 letters of soccer varsity, and 2 letters of cross country, one JV and 1 varsity. And a JV swimming letter. Next year i will be taking 4 AP's and 2 in My senior year. I have a strong recommendation letters. I am planning to do community service for 100 hours. I want to study Nuclear Engineering. My SAT scores are terrible specially reading and the writing section because of my English, but my math score is not that bad its about the average... Thank You so much for your time...
  • You should have above average math scores if you want to get into engineering. Its not that big of a deal but it helps. The rest of your stuff is good so even with a not so great SAT score you could still get in. They know that not everyone does well on the SAT so they do look at the entire picture.
  • My friend wants to start a lawn care business. Other than the obvious equipment needed, what other expenses does he need to consider? What applications, permits, licenses, taxes, insurance, etc? We live in Texas. Also, can you suggest any financing options for someone with a bad credit history? Where can he get some inexpensive flyers and/or business cards? Any suggestions are welcome and thanks for your help!
  • Go online and search for the Secretary of State website for your state. On there will have forms to apply to set up a business. Usually people will go to an attorney or legalzoom.com to get the paperwork done.
  • vistaprint.com for business cards a business like that will be impossible to get financing for - he'll have to start small part time and put profits back into business to expand - go to town hall for business licenses, state dept of revenue website for sales tax info. call an insurance agent for insurance info read books, magazines on starting a business - make sure he puts a portion of income aside for income taxes - must be paid quarterly
  • I did ask this earlier but I only got one answer: It's going to be hard to tell now because I only just finished my sophomore year but: My GPA (unweighted) is 3.96 Weighted GPA is 4.38 Both frosh and soph. year I took 2 honors classes. This year I'm taking 2 honors and 2 AP classes. I should graduate with 5 math credits, 4 lab science, 4 English, 4 (maybe 5) Spanish, 2 French, 3 social studies, and 2 fine arts. I'm in my school's "gifted" program. I'll have done 3 or 4 years of cheer, depending on if I do it my senior year or not. I've also had a job since my freshman year. Alsoooo I'm not in the top 10%. I'm like 81 out of 730. Actually I may have moved up because my GPA went up .02 at the end of the semester but Idk... I don't have an SAT score yet but my PSAT was 163 which means my estimated SAT is 1630, is that bad? I want to major in international business and also Spanish, is that possible? Thanks
  • Your GPA is very good. Your PSAT score isn't that good. UT is very, very hard to get into from out-of-state. Typically, most out-of-state students that get into here have around 2000+ on the SATs and are in the Top 10%, but usually in the Top 5% of their class. Right now, you have a very slim chance at having a chance to get into UT. Improve your SAT score and your class rank to improve your odds of acceptance. *Note: If you're going to apply to UT, DO NOT apply to the School of Business, because that's the hardest school to get into at UT. If I were you, I'd apply to the College of Liberal Arts, which is one of the easiest, if not the easiest, college to get into at UT.
  • Wow lady that's an outstanding resume of your four years. I say proper now the one factor bringing you down is that act rating. I advise you retake it and likewise take a look at the SAT, for a few folks one or the opposite comes out bigger. Try for no less than a 24 at the ACT. But rather than that I suppose you're set and well to head. Best of success:)

Can someone tell me about how much it is for each one? i live in texas but any answers will help.

  • if you have to get the credit at some point then stay in it. if you dont need it then go ahead and drop. someone might try to get in with late registration and you want to avoid messing with your grades more than you want to avoid using your drops (do you even have limited drops? texas does >.<)
  • i just went through my oral communications class, and you are constantly giving presentations at least once a week..... so I stuck through it and didn't give up. I say stick with it, especially if you need it.... for your degree(assuming your in college). Now I do not have to worry about it.... you can do it.
  • You should definitely take it.the people who couldn't get that class would be mad to learn that someone who took it doesn't even like that class and plus,learning CPR is definitely worth feelin embarrassed because it's important to learn
  • u should try to get bad grades in it so they kick u out of that class or just drop it

  • Belfast Girl, you better re-read what you just wrote because for what is probably the only time here I can actually agree with what you said: - "If muslim girls had brians the size of peanuts they will not remain as muslims lol - Indeed, it is only those with "brians" the size of peanuts who would not remain Muslims.
  • wa aleykum assalam To a non-muslim I don't think that they would take much notice I'm a non-muslim and i wouldn't have noticed it as much if you didnt point it out (I only noticed it slightly because i grew up in the middle east)
  • I think they're two different - albeit very similar - photographs rather than one being a photoshopped version of the other. Let's be thankful that Yahoo prints a story arguing that Islam is not to blame for the tragedy rather than using it as an excuse to print some "ISLAM IS EVIL PROOF" type of utter rubbish like some news sources always do whenever anything like this happens.
  • while muslims attempt to kill human beings for no obvious reason different than they are no longer muslim, and while women human beings seem to have values greater resembling the middle a while than as we communicate, you do no longer ought to objective *that* no longer undemanding to make Muslims seem undesirable. [Edit] "i remember analyzing interior the paper final year of the tstistics of muslim converts in britain i think. and how the object became written looked like it became a foul element. like with the help of 2050 the inhabitants of england i think could be 50%" Absolute balls. Muslims make up 3% of the united kingdom inhabitants as we communicate. and you're looking forward to 40 seven% of the united kingdom inhabitants to transform to islam interior the subsequent 40 years? Thats slightly over a million% of the inhabitants according to annum - it particularly is 3 hundred,000 converts according to year, according to annum for the subsequent 40 years. what proportion *converts* have been there to Islam interior the united kingdom final year? i think of you ought to get a flow on in case you desire to realize 3 hundred,000 this year! The style of muslims in this usa has greater dramatically no longer because of the fact of conversions, yet because of the insane levels of immigration to this usa, and the reality that those immigrants tend to have greater toddlers. [Edit] "besides you recognize precisely what i'm talking approximately regarless or the ststisticst mjslims re transforming into and the media do no longer like it and neither selfe centerd human beings such as you do the two. " How do you anticipate *me* to understand what you're talking approximately while it would not sound like *you* understand what you're talking approximately? you do no longer understand if it particularly is Britain or China or Pakistan, or if it particularly is 500 or 5000 or 50% - do you even understand if it particularly is Islam or another faith? Geez, i could be disenchanted approximately being called self concentrated if it wasn't so blatantly obvious that information do no longer concern you in any respect.
  • Tell me, when Saudi Arabia and all the Islamic Countries do not permit any immigration into their Countries, not even of Muslims from other places; and any and every outsider has to work on contracts with them, ... ... how do you even feel justified to ask all the kuffar Countries for more? In no Islamic Country in the World are anyone else allowed the Freedom of Religion. There is not a single, solitary church, synagogue or temple in Saudi Arabia, and in the other Islamic Countries, you can only renovate an ancient Monument and you don't have the Liberty and Freedom to even show your allegiance to your Faith there, under pain of 200 lashes. How do you feel justified in asking things of us here? If you are in an Islamic Country and you are taken by the Muttaween for even an alleged posting of such a question or an anti-Islamic Answer there, you are beheaded for treason. How do you justify yourself in living in USA and continuously dishing out anti-American, pro-Islamic thrash here? In your own Islamic lands, nobody has any Freedoms or Rights or Doles and Benefits. You people come here, live off our charity and then stab us in the back with every little opportunity.. Time and again, you Muslims prove to us that you are not worthy of our trust and that you harbor no goodwill for us; but, instead, want only our bad. And, after all that, you expect us to give you more and more? Pity is that our stupid Liberals and PC Brigades don't have the brains to see what they are doing to all of us for the sake of their vote banks. But, the tide is changing. Now, you can see that none of us are even giving you Muslims lip sympathy anymore. That the Right Wing and the anti-Islamic Political Parties are gaining strength every day. In the near future, even at the cost of a lot of misery and collateral damage, this situation will get resolved. Go ahead and have fun with doing your usual crap till then.

  • I own a rental property in Texas. The previous tenants ran away without paying the last month's payment. I want to hire a rent collector, so that even if I cannot get the money, I will put something bad on their rental and credit record, so that it would be more difficult for them to do this in the next time. Has anybody here successfully done this kind of thing before? Which collector did you hire? I don't want to pay a fee to get that service, but I don't mind that a big portion of what's collected would go to the collector.
  • well - if you have a property manager they shoud take care of that for you. Most PM companies have a debt colection service that they are already registered with. if they will not do this - only other thing is search in the yellow pages and make some calls. Just be aware that most debt colection companies will not deal with an indivisual, only busineses.
  • no legitimate collector will ask for a penny from you; they will take 25-50% of what they get from the run away. Did you not have a security deposit give you by them? That should have covered their last mo rent. next time; my solution that is innovative in this arena; create a form and require the tenant to use payroll deduction so that the employer pays you directly!
  • A Security Deposit is not used for the last months rent! Use: National Tenant Network Onsite.com

How do I resolve this and get it cleared without ultimately getting blamed for it? btw...its bn 3 years because I moved before it even happened and I didn't get my mail until after the court date. ive bn afraid to do anything in fear of jail but I nd to get this taken care of asap.
  • You will have to contact the court ins Texas to resolve the issue. It may require hiring an attorney in Texas. If you can prove you were in another state at the time, you should be able to clear this up fairly easily. Until you do, it is likely you won't be able to get a driver's license. I would also be concerned about what ELSE has been done in your name. Have you checked your credit report recently? You could well be a victim of full blown ID theft.
  • i am 38 yo female. I have 15 years office experience just doing reception & office assistant etc. I am on $45,000 a year I live on my own in a apartment & for the first time ever I am struggling to make ends meet. Everything is so expensive. Am I on bad money? What other job could I do that I could get better money on? I can only afford to pay rent ($330 a week), bills, & food. I cant even afford to get my hair done or get new shoes ;( HELP
  • You have a real serious problem but my problem is worst than yous. I can not figure out what I am doing wrong. I am a widower living by my self with 2 dogs and 3 cats. My mortgage payment is $685.08 per month. My income is $23,969.88 or $1997.49 per month. I wash my own hair and comb my own hair, in other words I do every thing my self, I also have long hair though it is grey. But then again I don't have large credit card bills which you may or may not have. I don't eat out and don't drive unless it is necessary. I live out in the country on 5 acres of land, near Austin Texas, 12 miles to the nearest store for grocery shopping. And I as a rule have $100.00 left over at the end of the month, would like to know what i am doing wrong. I am also 85 years old, may be that is what the problem is. All the above facts are true.
  • Because they always underrated him. He's a better debater than they think. He's smarter than they give him credit for. They're still underrated him and insulting him though they lost to him.
  • Bush was only in 2 elections for starters... The first one was actually won by Al Gore who legitimately won the votes in Florida. However Bush had family as governor of Florida who blurted to Fox News that Bush won (before the votes were fully tallied) which created a huge controversy when the results really came in. There were recounts demanded and so on. Bush became president ONLY because of the Supreme Court decision in Bush v. Gore 531 U.S. 98 (2000) where the 5 conservative justices voted for Bush and the 4 liberal voted for Gore. Read up on the case for more. The second election he won by appealing to the fundamentalist christians by promising to ban gay marriage. 3.5 million people who didn't vote last time came out in support of the gay marriage ban and voted for Bush. EDIT: "PS Funny how there was electoral farud alleged to explain his wins, but NONE alleged last fall." Not funny at all to someone who knows how it actually works. Electroral fraud is very, very rarely done on the congressional level. The parties don't have the kind of money or resources to participate in fraud or shady tactics for each congressman or senator. You'll also note there was no fraud allegations the previous 3 times when the republicans held on to their congressional majority.
  • FOUR elections??? - I think you mean TWO (the 2000 presidential election and the 2004 election). And in point of fact, he didn't actually win either one - instead, he cheated his way into office (in 2000, he got the Supreme Court to prevent all the votes from being counted; in 2004, his buddies got peoples' votes taken off the record on the bogus claim that they were 'felons'. Bush has never won a FAIR election...
  • Yep, but look who they put up against him. Gore? Even Clinton didn't like him enough to campaign for him. He's spent more time with both Bushes then he ever did with Gore during that campaign. And Kerry?! I mean what needs to be said about that idiot jerk that hasn't been said already? I don't care how much money they spent or all the nasty things they made up about Bush, only his mother--and Teresa if she came off her pedestal long enough to become a citizen and register--would vote for that guy.
  • He got political appointees (to the Supreme Court) to help him steal the election for pres. Texas?? Well, who can account for what Texans do?
  • Because Bush is smarter than the Dems. Yes, sometimes things ARE that simple.
  • they beat him in 2000 and 2004. read the work of greg palast for proof.
  • A lot of people who do not support Bush supported him then. Including the majority of the GOP, who now are distancing themselves from him.
  • Your post is exactly three months and one day too late. I supported Bush, but he is definitely not popular now. PS Funny how there was electoral farud alleged to explain his wins, but NONE alleged last fall.
  • you are. He was only in two elections
  • Obama offered nothing new, spread a few lies, or maybe he and his people do not know any different. An example, as to the "Infrastructure bank" which he said a Texas senator and a MA senator proposed. Obama's concept is to "grant money"; the TX and MA senator's concept was to lend the money and when repaid lend it out for new projects. Obama's concept is just more spending while the senators is acting as a credit resource. Obama's concept is bad beyond belief.
  • The Markets were down because of a fear of default in Greece and Europe. It didn't even have anything to do with the United States, let alone Obama.
  • Oh if you think that Obama's jobs speech is the only reason the DJIA dropped over 300 points today, you are seriously uninformed.
  • Sorry Gertrude http://www.boston.com/business/markets/a...
  • The DOW went up when Obama announced his jobs plan. But now it went down because they have no confidence in it.....? If that's true, then the investors on Wall street are bipolar.
  • Bad news from Europe today drove the market down. You might want to read some financial news before you spout off and make yourself look ignorant. http://thestockmarketwatch.com/stock-mar...
  • It's a Global Economy, Skippy.
  • ... and away we go again.. losing pensions and savings.. does Obama care.. Noooo... he made a great speech, he thinks.. all should believe in him. Is he going to give me back the 12 thousand dollars I lost today? What an a ss.. he will just keep it up until the U.S. is a third world country. Why doesn't he just shut up!
  • Obama screwed up big time, last nite...
  • Requirements to become a police officer vary and how you become a police officer varies depending on the police department. Visit the websites of the police departments that you might be interested in working for. Police department websites often provide information about their applicant requirements, about how to apply, and about their hiring process. Some relatively common minimum requirements include having at least a high school diploma or ged, being a citizen, being at least 21 years old, having a valid driver's license, and having no felony convictions. Some relatively common steps in hiring processes include application, written test, physical fitness test, interview, drug test, medical examination, and background investigation. Some departments in some states require applicants to have already completed police academy training before being hired. Some police academies will accept students that haven't already been hired by a law enforcement agency. In this case, you pay tuition to attend in hopes of getting hired after you graduate. However, you may or may not get hired after completing the academy. Some police departments will hire you, and then send you to the police academy. You should consider trying to get hired by a department that will send you to the academy. This way, you would already have a job and be paid while attending the academy, and you would not have to pay tuition to attend the academy. Getting police officer jobs is becoming more and more competitive. Do whatever you can to make yourself the best candidate that you can. Consider getting a college degree if you can. Getting a degree is one of the best things that you can do. Many departments require or prefer applicants to have college. Having a degree could help you get hired by some departments. Some departments pay their officers more if they have a degree. Having a degree could also help you get promoted during your career. Don't do anything illegal, maintain a good reputation, keep a good driving record, don't get bad credit, improve all of your communication skills as much as possible, practice to improve your observation and memory skills, and become as physically fit as you can. How well you do on written tests and during interviews can be very important when trying to get police officer jobs. Make sure to prepare for any tests and interviews. Consider local, state, and federal jobs. Best of luck!
  • Well if you want to join when you leave HS, at 18 years old, you would NEED an associates degree from college. Other than that, you have to wait until you are 21 to apply and get into the police academy.
  • You need your high school diploma or GED, the completion of an academy, and at least two connected brain cells. I don't understand what you mean by what do they do? They spend a year as a rookie in Field Training, and enforce the laws of the land.
  • What you need to become a police officer depends on where you want to become a police officer. Different departments have different requirements. Visit the websites of the police departments that you might want to work for. Police department websites often provide information about applicant requirements and about their hiring process. If you want to become a police officer, get a college degree. Getting a college degree is one of the best things that you can do if you want to become a police officer. Choose a major that interests you and that could also be useful for police work. Get a 4 year degree. Get the highest grade point average that you can. Don't do anything illegal. Maintain a good reputation. Keep a good driving record. Don't get bad credit. Become the best writer that you can. Practice to improve your observation and memory skills. Become as physically fit as you can. Then, apply with a few police departments.

  • Yes-Most of the Police Departments in the course of the US simplest require a High School and in a few circumstances a Two Year AA or AS Degree. Criminal Justice and different levels are well and can supply you a few nice perception and help concerning the legislation enforcement neighborhood. But it's my opinion that having an English Degree could be quite an competencies over different levels. Every town, county, state, and federal legislation enforcement company has there possess specified algorithm, legislation, and techniques concerning that specified company and/or jurisdiction. A key detail in any victorious legislation enforcement profession is the capability for that individual to be competent to converse each orally and in writing. Professional displays and appropriately written correspondence is a key detail in any development in any legislation enforcement profession.
  • If school counselors can't give you any kind of advice on that...then I have to say that's a sorry counselor. Preferably, a college education. Nothing specific, you can get your Associates or Bachelors in any field, though a degree in Criminal Justice is preferred as it will give you the knowledge in that line of work and it won't be limited to just police work. You'll also get knowledge in the scientific side such as forensics, which may interest you more. However, to actually become an officer, a department must hire you and send you to the police academy for training.
  • Go to Sam Houston State University. It's about 3 hours south of Arlington and it has one of the top 2 criminal justice programs in the nation. We have students from all over the nation and students fro China studying here. I'm in the CJ program trying to become a cop also and I have gotten some great opportunities here.
  • Go to Cop School..
  • I got an AAS diploma from Houston community college, Texas, US. Now, i want to move to upper level to studying 60 credits left for getting bachelor diploma. I'm very busy and do not have enough time for studying in abroad. But i'm come from Vietnam, some famous universities teaching online do not allow to let student from Asian enroll courses.Anyone can tell me how to get bachelor diploma through studying online from the best U.S'online university (e.g. University of Phoenix) ? How to submit and pay tuition fee?
  • Degrees from the U of Phoenix are a waste of time and money. They are not respected by other colleges or by any employers. They may be the biggest online university, but they are one of the worst, not the best. In the US it is illegal to discriminate against students because of color, nationality or national origin. If you have a diploma from from Houston Community College, you should be able to enroll online in any state university online program. Two of the most comprehensive are the University of Maryland and the University of Illinois.
  • It depends where you want to work after graduation. UP and UST would be good in the Philippines since it carries a lot of prestige there, SJSU is no better or worse than any other public college in the US though they may not know that in the Philippines just as Americans aren't familiar with UP or UST so I think it boils down to where you'd rather live during law school, Manila or San Jose. Good luck.
  • In July, the U.S. government got into the housing business with the passage of the American Housing Resccue and Foreclosure Prevention Act, which authorized $300 billion to insure refinanced mortgages. A few weeks ago, the government got into financial services as well with the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act, which gave Hank Paulson and the U.S. Treasury $700 billion to bail out the U.S. banking system. The subsequent lobbying frenzy has many people worried abo
