re: Economics: Do service jobs create wealth? - CalcuttaTigah on 12/26/16 at 11:59 am
My POV is that natural resources create wealth while services improve quality of life. This holds up at both the micro and macro economic levels. Some would argue that quality of life follows wealth and I believe that is true to a certain extent but the linkage breaks once you have a mature societ...

re: What are the OTs thoughts on St Joes or St Michaels - CalcuttaTigah on 11/9/16 at 8:00 am
I think both schools are up there as top schools in the city. However, I would give an edge to St. Joe's in Academics. I think SMHS is a younger institution and therefore doesn't have the alumni base yet to support it with the funding and leadership it needs to get it on a SJA or CHS level. I grad...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Anybody listen to Whiskey Myers? - CalcuttaTigah on 11/3/16 at 8:52 pm
Name sucks but I love them. Saw them in Houston last year and they played a White Stripes song too if I recall correctly. In order, my few favorites are 'Broken Window Serenade', 'Dogwood', 'Ballad of a Southern Man', 'Lonely East Texas Nights', 'Stone'. Love these guys and they put on a hell of...

Tiger presence is picking up in Green Bay! - CalcuttaTigah on 9/1/16 at 4:48 pm
From Baton Rouge but work in Houston now. My firm has me on a project in Green Bay for the foreseeable future, Monday - Thursday every week. Unfortunately, sitting in GB airport now to fly back home. But there is Purple and Gold everywhere! I'll take pictures of the aftermath when I return on Mo...

re: Tubing in Toledo bend - CalcuttaTigah on 7/22/16 at 7:02 am
Honestly, I wouldn't tube anywhere on that lake but there may be some areas safer than others. I will admit that I don't know much about the other parts but midlake has stumps even in the boat lanes that very often are just under the surface of the water....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Do interns actually get employees coffee? - CalcuttaTigah on 6/21/15 at 4:54 pm
Public accounting is a definite yes. I did it as an intern and we had interns do it for us. I've also had partners offer and bring my team coffees after they made us stay past 2am before so it goes both ways I suppose....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

Lunor 250s if that is your style. Somewhere around $950 with top of the line lenses but was able to use my HSA. Love them but then again I have to since I wear them every single day. They don't sell online...have to go to a high end shop. Handmade parts and also assembled in Germany....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: CPA's Exiting Public Accounting - CalcuttaTigah on 3/16/15 at 9:23 pm
I was a senior in tax at a Big4 in Houston before making the jump to consulting within the same firm. I do not regret it for a moment. My very first busy season in tax, I worked 53 days straight without taking a day off and that was not foreign to anyone around there. We focused on private client...

re: Best carry-on suitcase - CalcuttaTigah on 2/4/15 at 7:26 am
FWIW I fly every single week. I went with a Samsonite for $150 and it has held up well. It's a four wheeler and has a few external compartments which is all I needed. I fly on regional jets so I have to check my bag at the gate - it probably gets abused by the bag crew. In my opinion, the higher...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
