I have a list of places I am looking at, but about half of them have been eliminated for one reason or another and all of them have some major flaw. It is all a matter of what is soluble and how much it is going to cost. We got the building inspector to look at this one place and it came back with a really huge problem. He told us we needed to find someone to give us a quote on commercial roof replacement in Bergen county NJ. We got about half a dozen bidders, but I do not think some of them were even serious about it. I got the feeling that this one guy had too much work and he gave me the most ridiculous price he could imagine on the theory that I might possibly say yes. (more…)
I have made this deal with my boss. It works out like this. For about three months I am going to have a free place to stay, but it is not exactly a luxury abode. At the moment it is a bit on the run down side. He and spent the day down in this place that sells stuff like tempered glass shower doors in Union county NJ and going around to that sort of place. We got the stuff to do a pantry and to built a kitchen island. In fact it is going to be really nice by the time I get done. At that point it is going to be a wedding gift I am pretty sure.

We decided to add a thick layer of insulation in our attic, and we called a Chicago insulation company to come out and do the job. We thought that the whole house was insulated, but found out that only the large addition that was added had modern insulation. The old part of the house, the original structure, did not have any insulation at all in the walls. We could not tear up the inside walls or the outside ones to add insulation, and this company said they could do it without all that expense and mess.
We choose a sprayed insulation that would fill the wall spaces with foam. It was like having your house covered with a Styrofoam cooler. You know how well foam insulates cups and coolers. This stuff stopped the cold drafts and really cut down on the amount of energy we needed to heat the house during the cold Chicago winters. Not only does it get cold here, it gets really windy. During the coldest months you could feel the drafts when the wind was howling outside. The insulation made a big difference. (more…)[Top]
I got to thinking about this the other day when I drove by this huge house that this eye doctor lives in near the country club.This eye doctor works at this place that does that stuff on a huge volume though. They run people through their clinic in buses from retirement homes. I am thinking about being a lawyer and thinking about what is the best type of law to practice. For example the best divorce lawyer in Chicago is going to make a huge amount of money. In fact that guy could probably pick and choose the cases he wants to take and obviously you can charge more if you are really good. For example they had that divorce really involving the North Dakota oil guy, the one who supposedly invented fracking or turned it into the big thing that it has become. After that was over he wrote his now ex wife a check for nine hundred and some million dollars. (more…)[Top]
I just started looking at this sort of thing after I began to do research on how to go about getting my first house. I have a good job in computers and I make a good bit of money, and what makes sense is for me to save up enough money for a down payment and get the sort of house that is just right for a guy living alone. That is really the best way to keep the money that I earn it seems. I have begun to look around at site like http://homeinsurance-deals.com That is because I have realized that it is not quite so simple to buy a house. You have to go through a process and you have to get some other things done before you are able to complete the process. (more…)[Top]
Pairs trading is a fairly simple stock trading technique that is easy to learn if you make the right choice in a pair trading stocks course. You’ll see lots of courses offered online, and you may feel uncertain as to which one to pick. In my opinion, Jared Mann offers the best one out there. He is an experienced pairs trader, and his course provides you with everything you need to get started trading right away. It includes his excellent software, Pairtrade Finder. You also get a generous offering of file downloads and course lectures that will teach you everything you need to know. When you finish the course, you will feel fully confident to start trading. What’s more, you’ll be licensed and you won’t have to pay any ongoing fees. All this just costs $495, so it’s really an excellent deal if you really want to make a career of pairs trading.
How complicated is pairs trading?
Actually, it’s easy once you know what you are doing. The basic explanation is that you are betting on the difference between two similar stocks. (more…)[Top]
I was not sure what it was at first, but my father in law and I were scrounging around in this old barn and we found this old piece of machinery. I stared at it for a long time and then I remembered that I know this contractor who does a lot of boiler installation for Essex county NJ and that part of the state. At any rate I opened up my smart phone and snapped a bunch of photos of it and sent it to the guy. He did not know what it was at first either, but eventually he called me up and asked me if the guy wanted to sell it. Of course all of it was for sale, he could buy the barn and the land it was on along with a lot of other stuff that was left on the land. All of it was for sale.
At any rate the thing was something that they called a traction engine. (more…)[Top]
Whether we want to admit it or not, our digital world is much frailer than most people would ever assume and this puts a lot of data at risk. Sure digital copies of photos will not be so quick to deteriorate over time, but that does not mean they are a guarantee of safekeeping. Whether the issue is a simple hardware malfunction or something more shocking like a fire or flood, data stored in one place is often at risk of being lost. Using Linux backup software this can be avoided with easy backups that will keep your data accessible for years to come.
The bottom line is that there is always a way to back data up further, but people must find a method that is realistic for the type of data they are housing. (more…)[Top]
I was having some trouble figuring out what to get my friends during the holiday season. I feel like I’ve gotten them everything, so I was fresh out of ideas. I thought about just giving them cash or gift cards, but that would have seemed too impersonal. I stumbled across a website that sells Singapore t-shirts, and decided to take a look. The shirts were pretty good, and they had sizes that my friends wore, so I ordered some of them, boxed them up, and wrapped them up as best as I could.
The shirts were a big hit with my friends. They loved the cool designs and how comfortable they felt. I had solved my dilemma, but I created another problem for myself. Since I got them t-shirts for the holidays, I was out of gift ideas again for the next year. I guess I could get them t-shirts again, but I would have to make sure that I don’t get them the exact same shirts as last time. (more…)[Top]
During my time with using Twitter, I have quickly learned how important it is to have a selection of Twitter followers that are active if I’m attempting to utilize Twitter as a platform to push out some of my own content. I’ve been writing a blog now for close to a year which I’ve come to enjoy immensely. I decided to take the next step forward by attempting to turn it into a part-time job that would be able to cover the time investment that I wanted to put into it. This meant that I would have to begin advertising the blog itself more which meant that I would be using Twitter!
I setup a third party software called SocialOomph which would automatically take my posts and Tweet them through Twitter, as well as my other social networks, but I realized that I only had a handful of friends that were following me through the service. (more…)[Top]
There exists some disagreement whether or not to purchase Soundcloud plays is somehow against the Terms of Service set down by Soundcloud or if it goes even further to be some sort of moral issue. For my part, I do not believe that it is a moral issue and to think of it in terms of being a moral issue is nothing short of arrogance. Artists who wish to continue creating their art must have the means to do so. As such, they are going to need the materials in order to craft their work as well as food and shelter.
How fans ever expect their favorite artists to make their art without money or shelter is beyond me. (more…)[Top]
We are still getting stuff ready, but we are in the house. The car is not in the garage, because the garage is full of boxes which we have not gotten round to unpacking just yet. I have hooked up the satellite dish already, because I had to watch the college football games Thursday night. I had to go to http://satellite-direct-tv.com. It is an easy thing to do if you are working hard at it and you have done it before. So it only took me about half an hour to hook up the dish and get it working. The job is not done permanently.

When I decided to buy Datpiff views, I thought it was going to be hard to select the right company to provide this service for me. It seems that with each legitimate company, there are a dozen that are at the other end of the spectrum. I decided to just do a search for the most reliable company that does this, and I was very happy with what I found. I clicked on the first site that loaded, fully prepared to have to look at quite a few more. I saw that I hit the jackpot with the first one though. (more…)[Top]
I am in the process of wrapping up the purchase of a house. I am pretty excited, because owning a house is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. I have just not been in the position to buy one before, because I did not have enough money for a down payment. I managed to use my tax return, and some other money to put towards the down payment, and now I am looking at home insurance deals as I am going to have to pick an insurance policy before the mortgage will be official.
Since I am trying to get all of this wrapped up swiftly, it is important for me to get house insurance soon, and then the mortgage will be official, and I will officially own the house. That will make me feel better, and it will give me a good bit of relief, when it comes to this subject. I am going to have to find a policy that is good, and has an adequate amount of coverage.
One of the things I am concerned about though, is finding an adequate amount of coverage, without either too high of a deductible, or too high of a premium. I guess that premium is what concerns me more, because it is something that I am always going to have to pay. But, I should also be careful to not get a policy with too high of a deductible because that could obviously be quite bad for me. It is going to be hard to avoid both things, so at some point, I am going to have to make a compromise in my best interests. First off, I am going to try to look into some of the companies that offer insurance plans in my area.[Top]
Many of us have been clearly unhappy with iOS 8 that we’ve begun to downgrade iOS 8 despite the fact that it is actually against the terms of service which Apple has set for it’s consumers. Doesn’t it just make you want to shake your head in absolute disbelief that a company as powerful and as rich as Apple could go as far as try and to control what we can or cannot do with our own devices? Once we put money down on a product and purchase it, shouldn’t that mean that the product is actually now ours? You’d think so.
Unfortunately because of the way that IP laws actually work, we do not own the right to the item itself but the right to use the product. (more…)[Top]
I am down here in Phoenix looking for a place to live and trying to figure out where the best sort of place would be. Of course it is really hot down here and I can not believe it, but it also gets cold at night. I went out last night and it was blazing hot, but by the time I got back to the hotel it was sort of chilly. I met a guy who worked for one of the Phoenix High Speed internet providers and he said that they even got snow down there in the winter. (more…)[Top]
When I was a young boy, I grew up in, Tyler, Texas. I moved with my family to another state, when I was 11 years old, but I still have a lot of fond memories of my time in Texas. I really enjoyed it there, and I told myself that one day, I would move back. It has been a few decades, but I am finally in a position to move back. I have my eyes on a house, and I am in the final steps of buying it. On, www.energyproviderstexas.com, I will learn more about electricity prices in Texas, because it seems that the situation is a lot different in this state, than it is in other states.
I had no idea that the electricity industry was not regulated in Texas, until I started to look for a electricity provider for my are,a and realized that I had a lot of options. It was kind of a shock at first, but I would describe it as a pleasant surprise now. I like to have options, because it means that there is a higher chance that I will be able to get the type of service that I actually want.
I hope that there are not any snags in purchasing this house. I have scheduled the moving company to deliver our belongings to the house within the next week. But if I am not able to complete the purchase of the house by then, then I do not really know what I will do. I am looking into electricity prices, and the utility prices, just to give myself something to do right now. I want to be prepared, when it is time to actually move into the house. Hopefully, it will not be too long until we are able to do that.[Top]
I am going to have to switch internet service providers in the near future, because my current provider is trying to raise the prices. I do not think that their prices are all that good in the first place, and as such, a raise in prices, over what we are currently paying, is simply unacceptable. That is why I am going to need to find someone else to buy Internet from, and I want to make that happen soon. I am seeking a way to find deals on cheap dsl locally, and I hope that there are some really excellent prices available.
I want to spend less than 25 dollars per month on my internet connection, and I really hope to not exceed that goal. I know that is pretty inexpensive, but I have a feeling that there is a DSL deal for that much offered by somebody. (more…)[Top]
- A male contains a Y-linked genetic disorder and mates with a healthy female. What percentage of the female offspring would contain the disorder? What percentage of the male offspring would contain the disorder?
Answer by Peter S
Males are XY and females are XX so the female offspring have no Y and so 0% disorder. Male offspring (XY) will all have a Y from their father and so =100% disorder.
- How could the function y=3t^2 +4 be plotted on a graph to produce a strait line? What is the numeric value of the slope and the intercept of the line?
Answer by kuiperbelt2003
write the equation as:
take the ln of both sides:
ln (y-4) = ln[3t^2]=
if you plot ln (y-4) vs. ln (t), the slope of the line will be 2
- How is the y-intercept related to an arithmetic sequence?
Answer by KnowhereMan
The y-intercept simply tells one where the line intersects with the y-axis. It provides a point of reference (literally) with relation to the origin (0,0). When positive, it’s above the x-axis. When negative, it’s below it.
There are tons of things that I could come out here and tell you about direct tv, but most of those things you will already know, but what I am going to do is tell you about satellite tv in general and how it can help you get to the better things in life. You see when you save nearly forty or fifty dollars a month on tv each month a lot of good things can happen. You will have more money to spend on your family or food, you can keep that extra fifty a month and put it towards a savings so that one day your kids can go to college. There are tons of things that you can do with it. The only thing that is wrong to do with it is to not get it. You see if you don’t switch to satellite tv you can never know the feeling of saving fifty dollars.
There are no catches or gimmicks or anything like that. (more…)[Top]
There is currently a growing security threat that many Americans are not taking seriously. Unfortunately for most, smart phones are utilized as introductory computing devices and as they continue to grow in popularity to replace the traditional mobile phone, we are going to see the number of mobile hacks on the rise. Just as the popularity of apps like the Whatsapp hack tool continue to rise due to their ease of use and ability to be spread throughout communities quickly thanks to the mobile nature of the platforms they’re designed for, it’s no surprise that we’re facing these sorts of threats. We have to change the way we are treating our mobile devices if we want to protect ourselves.
This means that we mobile devices and tablets alike must come pre-installed with software to protect them against Malware, Trojans, Viruses and even root hacks. (more…)[Top]
