I'm Reading Toxic Charity, and here are some interesting highlights - anc
Africa has received $1 trillion in benevolent aid in the last 50 years, and per capita income is now lower, life expectancy has stagnated, and adult literacy is lower. 85 percent of aid money flowing to African countries never reaches the targeted areas of need. U.S. missions teams who rushed ...

[quote]elaborate please [/quote] We have three public HBCUs that are jokes. JSU is known as Just Show Up. A few years ago, a graduate of one of these institutions sued the state of Mississippi because he did not feel his education was as good as some of the other universities in the state....

Landmass Uprising: A call to unite for a noble cause - anc
Word is Boyce (former community college president) got the IHL Commissioner job. This is not good for State and Ole Miss, in my opinion. He's on board with the free Community College for all plan which will hurt every SEC school a little sans Vandy, but especially State and Ole Miss. Time for al...

re: Student Loan Repayment Options Explained - anc
It can certainly be exploited. Say I am a MD making $150k with $250k in student loans. My standard payment is $1,342 for 30 years ($483,120), or $2,651 for 10 years ($318,120). But under PAYE, my payment is $1,000 and in 20 years ($240,000), the balance is forgiven ...

re: Student Loan Repayment Options Explained - anc
If you are eligible for PLSF, then you should pay the lowest per month that you can. There's going to be some high earners (think Ph.D's, some attorneys, some doctors) that have their loans completely forgiven after 10 years of standard payments. I'm eligible for PLSF, but my standard payment is...

Student Loan Repayment Options Explained - anc
As a higher ed administrator with no money sense, it is odd that I do know about this topic. I thought I would make a possible sticky on the subject. When you are no longer a student, you have about 6 months before you have to start to pay back your loans. What most people do not realize is that ...

re: Not Using a Realtor - anc
I understand that some people are uncomfortable, but at no point does the realtor do jack. If something worries you about the mortgage, you are dealing with the bank. If something worries you about the closing, you are dealing with the attorney. Want to find out if the tree in the back yard has s...

Not Using a Realtor - anc
I refuse to deal with the scum that is the American Real Estate Agent. You pay a 6% commission on the biggest asset that most people own for them to do nearly nothing. Don't come in here and say "some realtors are better than others." At their best, they open the door, tell you "yes" to everythin...
