re: Deutsche Bank Litigation / Bailout Watch - marchballer
I was wondering why stocks went down so much today. Last day of the quarter tomorrow. Will be interesting to see if anything saves this drumming. Only bright spot this week has been the OPEC deal. Commerzbank in Germany announced 10k layoffs which means that there must be more issues in the bank...

re: Deutsche Bank Litigation / Bailout Watch - marchballer
I agree. DB is likely the stimulus for a correction. Corporate Earnings will have decreased 6 straight quarters if predictions for next quarter holds. Oil is in trouble after the Saudi-Iran no deal today. Bank of Japan can't do anything for the life of them. With interest rates this low, governments...

6 month CD from Ally Bank IMO (take with a big grain of salt as I'm a newbie) stock market is volatile right now to invest in stocks, bonds or currency. With the election coming up, Fed hinting at raising interest rates and Stocks already being near All Time Highs. I'd stay away from investing an...

re: Rental cars - do you ever purchase the additional insurance package? - marchballer
Only place I recommend doing this is in Iceland. Amazing country but after driving on those roads for a week, your car takes a huge beating. Iceland requires drivers to take the base insurance by law but your American Credit card/insurance company requires you to decline all insurance. We were o...

re: Please tell me about the San Francisco bay area - marchballer
Congrats on the offer. Overall the area is amazing. There is a reason why the cost of living is so high and it's the vast number of different things to do. Coming from San Leandro, you have a lot of options. The East Bay will generally be cheaper than the Penisula and SF. Overall it depends on your ...

re: Is Stanford out now regardless? - marchballer
In addition, the Pac-12 has much better QB play than the SEC. All across the conference there are QBs who can air it out all over the field. You don't see anything like that in the SEC. ...

re: Rob Ryan-SCAPEGOAT - marchballer
Agree 100% with this thread. Over the last 10 years we've constantly complained on this board about defensive players and coaches. At some point maybe it's not the DC fault but the guys above him. There is a decent possibility that in 3 years we could be having this very same conversation again. ...

re: 23-year-old Google employee lives in a truck in the company's parking lot - marchballer
I live 5 minutes from Google and on every other street you now see people living in RVs parked on streets near the campus saving money. City ordinance requires them to move their rv every 72 hours so you just see them rotate streets. ...

re: Christian McCaffrey is pretty good. - marchballer
[quote]How did Stanford lose to Northwestern?[/quote] First Game of the season. Offense was still searching for an identity and how to utilize C-Mac. Hogan is finally playing like a 4th year starter. This team has really come together and will be interesting to see if they can keep up the momentu...

re: Somebody enlighten my privileged white arse on why #AllLivesMatter is racist - marchballer
As an African American I wish the organizers focused and the larger issues in the community like incarceration rates, black on black crime and education in our community. The way black ppl are treated by some in society is awful but if we get our community more educated and reduce the amount of ...

re: Initial data suggesting strong employment damage from L.A. minimum wage hike - marchballer
People here really think $8 an hour is enough for people to live on in LA. Yes people will cut jobs to offset offset the increase but the economy isn't going to just tank forever. It'll take time for the changes to set in and stabilize. ...

I live in a 1bd apartment down in San Jose for 2400/mo. I just checked the website and 2 months later the rent has gone up to 2800/mo. These rent prices are just insane. I used to have a 2bd in Mountain View for 1800/mo 3 years ago....
