| Money Talk|| Any undervalued sector mutual funds? - Jake88 on 3/13/14 at 11:10 am|
I have an account with fidelity and have a few sector mutual funds like biotech and multimedia which have done well. With most sector based funds and S&P index funds seeming to be at or near all time highs, are there sectors that have lagged but are poised to make their move soon or are unjustly un...

some LSU fans are enjoying and talking shite about 'Bama's 1st half display?
You people act as if sports aren't tailored to enjoy your competitors' lows. Some of you really need to pull the sticks out of your rectums and lighten up. It's fun, it's a game and smack talk is enjoyable whether you're ...

Despite those calling for his head, I think we couldn't be in better hands for the post season. The O-line has to play above their heads the next few weeks.

| Money Talk|| Is there a way to have an "offshore" retirement/investment acct? - Jake88 on 11/6/13 at 9:00 am|
We hear about people with Cayman Island bank accounts but can you have a Fidelity-like/Vanguard-like offshore investment account that is out of reach of US govt hands?
This is prompted by a concern that when I retire in a couple of decades IRAs and 401ks might be subject to raids by the govt to ...
| Political Talk|| How often do the liberal USSC justices disagree with each other on major issues? - Jake88 on 6/17/13 at 6:17 pm|
It appears to me that on the big, hot button issues, they vote in lock step with each other to satisfy the liberal political agenda. Meanwhile, the question becomes, "Do the conservatives stick together?" Unlike the Left, the conservatives seem to have 2 choices, satisfy the conservative political a...
| O-T Lounge|| Why the difference in NOLA's reaction to Hurricanes Andrew vs Georges? - Jake88 on 6/16/13 at 9:10 am|
Why did so few evacuate NOLA metro for Hurricane Andrew, but six years later tens of thousands tried during the approach of Hurricane Georges? I was in my 20's during those times, living in the city, and evacuated for neither, but I can't recall what the differences were that prompted the different ...
| Soccer Board|| Best soccer training videos for kids? - Jake88 on 6/15/13 at 4:26 pm|
I know little to nothing about soccer but wanted to work with my 9 and 6 year old kids(beginners) in the backyard to supplement practices. Saw something about a video called SoccerU but it's 5 discs and I wasn't sure if it was too advanced. Any recommendations? Thanks....
| Money Talk|| Is now a good time to buy Banking sector focused funds? - Jake88 on 6/6/13 at 9:12 am|
I know little about this but understand that what heads on CNBC and Bloomberg say may come with the baggage of their own personal interests, but some are saying that Fed tapering and imminent increases in interest rates will help that sector take off. True or are there other mitigating factors? Has ...

| Tiger Rant|| Did ESPN just say they were going to bounce around while covering - Jake88 on 5/25/13 at 12:43 pm|
regional games? They did that 3-4 years ago and kept interrupting the LSU game if you were getting your ESPN through satellite. Apparently if you get ESPN through satellite, it's a national feed, not a local feed like with cable. Are they really going to pull that crap again?...
| O-T Lounge|| Closest decent beach to NOLA? - Jake88 on 5/25/13 at 9:15 am|
Looking for a beach that's close enough for a single day trip with small children. Leave in the AM and return that evening. When we usually go for overnight trips it's to Perdido and east towards Destin. Is Alabama and Dauphin Island ok? Anything in eastern MS.? Ok meaning it's somewhat green/blue w...
| Movie/TV Board|| Arrested Development...what am I missing? - Jake88 on 5/13/13 at 9:23 pm|
I loved Seinfeld, Curb your Enthusiasm, South Park, The Simpsons and movies like Clerks, Office Space, Old School, Walk Hard and the Other Guys, but I'm having a "meh" reaction to Arrested Development. It's ok, fine. But, it's not laugh out loud. It's pleasant, but, it seems predictable and formulai...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Opinions on Napoli's number of At Bats? - Jake88 on 2/28/13 at 8:11 pm|
I keep seeing around 430-455 at bats. But, are those projections considering that he'll play 1B? Wouldn't that garner him more at bats than when he was the starting catcher during 2010 and got 453 ab's with the Angels?
Isn't it more likely he'll get 500 ab's while the starting 1st baseman?...
| O-T Lounge|| Which hand should my 6 year old son throw with? - Jake88 on 2/23/13 at 12:05 pm|
He and I both write and eat left handed but I throw a football and baseball right handed. He's 6 and when we go out to toss the ball around, he throws with either hand about equally. He'll be starting little league soon and I'll have to buy him a glove, effectively choosing the hand he throws with f...

With the apartment complex behind the Covington Wal Mart, the new complex behind the Target and the huge number of relatively new complexes along Hwy 22 as you drive from Mandeville to Madisonville with more likely to spring up I can't imagine it'll take longer than 15 years.
I watched N.O. East...

I understand that your principle is not subject to losses in the market in down years and when the index is up say, 13% you may only get a 6% return on your money. But, if it's included as one facet of a portfolio that has a 401k and other IRA's, what's the downside? Is it not a good choice to provi...

I've taken a look at them and see where women went for Obama 55% vs 46%. I see where married women favored Romney and single women favored Obama. I see where Catholics split 50/50. But, how accurate is that if the didn't do exits in La, Ms, Al, Ut, Texas and 10 other red states? Isn't it possible th...

Obama 69.4 million
McCain 59.9 million
Obama 59.5 million
Romney 56.9 million
Obama hasn't yet reached McCain's total from 2008.
Secondly, Obama won big in the EC but right now it's about 2.5 million votes separating the candidates out of 116.4 million.
