re: Shooting at UCLA, Murder-Suicide suspected - The Goon
My sister in law is in lockdown on campus. I've been glued to Twitter making sure this wasn't an active shooter situation like va tech. The news of a murder suicide was sad, but a relief. ...

[quote]i keep giving Trump the benefit of the doubt he is not a smart man [/quote] There's a liberal economist who writes for the New York Times that gave this exact opinion when Obama started ramping up his debt spending. His idea was that if us debt was starting to be a burden we could mint...

re: Are wages in CA really that much higher than LA? - The Goon
[quote]So you won't be moving to Denver.[/quote] Excess supply is expected to be gone by q3 of this year with price increases in q4. I'm thinking a stable market for 2017 with hiring and some capital expansion then. I'll have over five years experience and hopefully a PE on my resume. I'll mak...

re: Are wages in CA really that much higher than LA? - The Goon
Most of our former employees had cdls to move rigs from lease to lease. Anyone layed off with a cdl is going to apply for a trucking job right now. I'd expect a tight labor market for the transportation industry in the region. There's plenty of oil and gas workers looking for work....

re: Are wages in CA really that much higher than LA? - The Goon
If you stayed in your home after the financial collapse, prices are around where they were. Most of the people I've heard of who went bankrupt were the people who took out an arm for a spec house and couldn't afford the payments after the teaser rates. These were doctors and lawyers investing in t...

re: Are wages in CA really that much higher than LA? - The Goon
I live in the Central Valley and I recently priced what it would take yo move into LA county. I'm in an 1800 sq ft home now and busying at the seams with one kid. I bought the house new for 219 which is now listing for 268k. At a minimum, the only thing comparable was a new construction condo for ...

re: 45% of new grads who actually find jobs, are taking "no degree needed" jobs - The Goon
This was the second recruiting agency for the same position. I applied 3 months prior and did not get a call back and a general email saying I wasn't considered for the position. Now with a different agent, I am considered one of the top candidates. In the engineering world there's a gap betw...

re: 45% of new grads who actually find jobs, are taking "no degree needed" jobs - The Goon
[quote]It is YOU, the applicant, that needs to show the employer you bring something to the table. The employer isn't opening the job to "give people opportunities". The employer is opening the job because they need the fricking job done and they'd like it done as well as it can possibly be done for...

re: Worth it to hard wire house? - The Goon
I bought a new construction house a few years ago. I was pissed when I found out that ethernet had not been wired to any of the rooms. More TV's are now streaming devices and wifi is not keeping up with bandwidth. All of the houses were wired with a special console for your router and wifi at...

re: Engineering Calculation Question - The Goon
Off the top of my head, define burst pressure as the yield stress of the hull. Stress is a function of tensile stress and shear stress with magnitude being square root of the sum of the squares (mohr circle). Write both shear stress and tensile stress as a function of pressure and then solve for p...

re: Policies: High school vs College - The Goon
I'd like to see more AP and college credit available during high school. Identify talented kids younger and allow them to take community college courses starting at the freshman level. Imagine taking 1-2 courses per semester while in 9-10 grade with more your junior and senior year. You could...

re: Say something incriminating about the company you work for - The Goon
It's not incriminating, but most likely dishonest. The company I work for invoiced as much as possible early November and will not pay a single bill until the new year. There's a major bond payment coming up next year and the company wants to pad the balance sheet with cash as much as possible...

re: Why do people who have student loan debt feel like it should be forgiven? - The Goon
There's a group of Ivy League grads refinancing student loans at lower rates to other ivy graduates. Their idea is that a Harvard grad is more likely to have a better paying job and the risk is lower. My lowest interest loan is my wife's loan cosigned with her father at 2.8 compared to 6.8 for t...

re: Why do people who have student loan debt feel like it should be forgiven? - The Goon
My problem is with the tax write off. The deduction is capped at $2500 per tax form. My wife and I got married with close to 90k between us in loans. The interest paid well exceeded $2500 per each of us, but the deduction was capped at 2500 because we are married. The fed government is loani...

West Texas is going strong. Either look for production engineering roles as an engineer or start applying as a WSM. I talked to an engineer over the weekend who has worked the past 6 months as a WSM and finally found a position within the company as an operating engineer....
