One of my coworkers sat a federal grand jury in NYC for a year. She had to go twice a week. Many of the people were retired and enjoyed getting out of the their houses and participating in the legal process. My coworker still gets together with the other people on the jury.

^ I used to make photo books via Apple, but found them so restrictive. I spent way too much time trying to fit my photos into their templates.

First, get rid of any doubles. Second, get rid of ones where you don't know the people. Third, get rid of "bad" photos, where people look bad. Fourth, get rid of scenery. Finally, get rid of those that are similar to others, as if you took a series. Then divide by year and make a box for each year. Mark outside of box important events that year. Done. [ Reply | More ]

It sounds like intermittent fasting isn't working for you. If you eat too little, it can cause your metabolism to drop, so you need less food. Also, all fruits and vegetables is not a healthy diet - you must be ravenously hungry? I'd add some fats and protein (could be cheese, eggs, hummus). And what about exercise? [ Reply | More ]

With brokers’ fees, closing costs and taxes, you would lose money if you sell in five years no matter how great the market. 10 years minimum to see any profit and then not much. To really appreciate in the NYC market, you need 20 years. [ Reply | More ]

Not true at all. Compounded growth of 9-10% for five years will run thru 10% total transactions costs easily, not that such appreciation is likely from here on. [ Reply | More ]

She’s only getting a small one bedroom. That won’t appreciate by much at all, even over time, compared to an index fund. There are far too many of those on the market. Warren Buffet gave advice to his wife upon his death to invest in index funds. Those yield the best returns over time. [ Reply | More ]

A) this is not what OR said even if you might end up being right, b) index funds have done great because corporate profits have gone bezerk and profit margins are at all time highs- just like the real estate market it is a high starting point if buying today- rates hurt the equity mkt too in addition to real estate prices.

I am the OR and the advice I’m giving - take it or leave it - is that investing the same amount of money today in a low cost or no load mutual fund will yield, over time, a far better return than a one bedroom on the upper west side. The only case where it’s possible for such a small piece of real estate to match the long term returns of the stock market is in the extreme long term, more than 20 years. [ Reply | More ]

Primarily because there isn’t enough money in suing public school districts. Also many states require plaintiff to prove greater degree of negligence (gross negligence instead of negligence) to recover against a public entity. And eventually even dumbest jurors figure out a judgment against a public entity is paid, directly or indirectly, by the taxes they pay. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I use Venmo, and I noticed I can see everyones payments to everyone and I assume they can see mine. And of course they FORCE you to put in a comment, so you are likely to write something cute, which I have been doing. I just saw my boss's son paid him. And so now I assume my boss sees the stupid comments I type in when I pay my nanny? And I switched nannies, so my old nanny sees my comments to my new nanny? This is insane? Why does all of this need to be so publicly shared? Can it be turned off? I emailed Venmo but of course they said something like they don't work Saturdays... 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
