[ - ] I need some honest advice. I am on weight watchers and the ladies there think anyone with a normal BMI is at a perfect weight. I need to set a goal that is a good weight for me. I am 5'1 and in my 40s. Currently weigh 128 lbs. I have curves (DD bra). What weight would be a good goal? I want to look good. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I'm 115 lbs and my body can tell right away when goes up towards 120 lbs in a negative way (less fit, lower muscle tone, more letargic). Feel best at 112-113 lbs, but I seem to bounce in that 111lb - 117lb range since I was 18, 20 years ago (aside from pregnancies). [ Reply | More ]

The poll sampled 1600 voters, not 160,000 or even 16,000. It really means very little as a litmus test for what the whole country is thinking. The media, however, are very invested in keeping things as close as possible so both sides are constantly clicking to see who's edging one way or the other. Even if Trump wins a popular vote, which I doubt (Hillary won't be indicted and Trump has four more months to alienate even more people than he already has), the electoral college is stacked against him. It's basically her election to lose, and there is nothing else to trot out about her. VPs might make a big difference, though. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Budget moms, can you offer some tips on looking chic without spending $$$? I am in my late 30s and feel myself getting schlubby every day. The moms at my DC's school look so put together and it makes me feel so self conscious. 17 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Be thin. If you are thin, you can get away with wearing cheaper clothes because you naturally look chic. [ Reply | More ]

5' 4", 115 lbs. Just bought 3 dresses at old navy online yesterday night, they were 40% off barely above $50 so got the free shipping and free returns. I usually buy 3 items online forcing myself to return 2. That way, I end up with a collection of nice dresses that fit very well, in different colors. Solid works best for me, but this time around I only found patterns. We'll see how they fit. [ Reply | More ]

Wooah are you me? Same stats and I also bought three dresses from Old Navy yesterday! $17 each! I bought another ON dress earlier this season ($15) and have worn it a few times already and gotten lots of compliments. ON has really stepped up it's game this season! [ Reply | More ]

Too funny, I thought I was the only one who wore cheap ON dresses. I bought a dress for $7.99 and it looks great, kind of Tory Burch summer stuff. I half cringe/pride when someone complements me on it. [ Reply | More ]

Focus on hair, skin and nails. Make sure your hair is clean, shiny regardless of color. And it doesn't have to be highlighted or processed by any means, just well groomed and polished. That and a very basic manicure and extremely light makeup, small stud earrings + wedding rings or simple watch always look classic and help me feel put together regardless of my outfit.

[ - ] My 9-year-old DS is a very sweet child. He is always considerate of others and let others take whatever they want first. He went to chess camp yesterday and was hungry since he only got 2 slices of pizza while other boys grabbed whatever they want. I don't know how to teach him to become more aggressive like other boys, which I believe would prepare him better for a competitive world. What do you think? 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Most of the hedge fund managers at my DD school run medium sized firms. Assets between 200 million and a billion. They are required to file form 10F and thus you can see what alpha they generate on their longs. Not hard to see how the ones with ten years of alpha can afford the real estate they live in.

13F you mean- that shows nothing but long positions- you'd have to toss it into excel and then know what to compare it to. and few funds have 10 years of alpha that aren't quant-heavy. [ Reply | More ]

You can't "look up" the performance of most hedge funds, because they are privately placed and therefore do not publicly file their offering documents or advertise their performance. The links the OR is providing above provide a partial picture based on limited public information. [ Reply | More ]
