re: Year End CLE Check In - Cold Cous Cous
Baws it was a life changing experience to find that you can get CLE credit for writing bar journal articles, or even those little case summaries. You get like 3 hours per page. I wrote these for 3 years before finding that you could get credit for them....

re: I am trying to understand how the unemployment rate is calculated now.... - Cold Cous Cous
[quote]Its part timers that work part time but would like full time work. [/quote] Right but it gets tricky once you start making value judgments as to what "underemployment" means. I'm worth twice what my boss is paying me - how's that any different than someone working 20 who wants 40? So throw m...

re: Big 10 Making Changes - Cold Cous Cous
FIRST OFF - there is no Alabama bias and the only reason you're saying this is jealousy. SECOND - changing anything even slightly or even suggesting a change is completely unfair to Bama and is only trying to knock us down because of jealousy. THIRD - the fact that you're even mentioning the w...

re: I am trying to understand how the unemployment rate is calculated now.... - Cold Cous Cous
[quote]I believe the numbers are correct, the issue is that the wrong number is published - U3, and U6 is what matters. I think U6 is right around 9% which seems more correct than 4.7%[/quote] U-6 includes part-timers, and it doesn't seem right to call them "unemployed." That number might be useful...

re: Eric Trump sits next to Muslim comedian on flight; orders pork - Cold Cous Cous
I'm most interested in this correction at the bottom of the article: [quote]Hillary Clinton was Donald Trump’s opponent in the 2016 US election. An earlier version of this story misstated her role[/quote] So did the writer not know who [i]Hillary Clinton[/i] was, and the editor had to go back and ...

Schedule C with no income? - Cold Cous Cous
My live-in life partner has decided to start a side business next year (think Etsy). She is looking to start purchasing equipment and supplies, which will probably run into the thousands of dollars. However, I think there is a 0% chance she will actually show any income before the end of the year. ...

re: I want to buy a tube amp. Or a bright solid. What's the best economical option? - Cold Cous Cous
[quote]I have a Crate 65gtr and its just too fricking low and sad[/quote] This is obviously not a great amp but it certainly should be "bright" enough. What settings are you on? What pickups do you use? Edit: and for a budget clean amp I've literally never heard a bad word about the Fender Must...

re: Don't understand melt down over not hiring Herman... - Cold Cous Cous
[quote]Recruiting matters. One month was going to be a distraction. Besides, the longer we went without signing a head coach, the worse it looks from the outside. On another note...Nobody available did much to impress IMHO. So I guess my question to you is- who were we waiting for? [/quote] This is...

re: Electric guitar question. Little Alum? - Cold Cous Cous
Here you go, a goldtop for $85 if you use the 15% coupon today. Of course you would also need an amp. http://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=610212 But realistically I think a 6 year old is too small to hold any "real" guitar. I strongly concur with the 3/4 Squier mini (or equivalent). ...
