re: High level finance class is a new level of intense - RedStickBR
This sounds like part of the Level 2 CFA Examination, except on that exam you can just punt the derivatives portion as long as you do well on everything else :lol: Currency forwards and futures can also be a bear...

re: ESPN is mad at the people who no longer watch their Network because of NFL. - RedStickBR
I cut my cable package and went to Sling largely because I was able to save money and also have a lineup that doesn't include ESPN. The white supremacist comments about our President was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. I don't watch your shitty network for political commentary, particu...

re: Who's ready to speak truth to power in New Orleans? - RedStickBR
Not long until the productive class leaves New Orleans proper a la much of Memphis. In many ways, though, I feel this is the fault of New Orleans' upper crust. I get that they think their private schools are great and all, and that crime doesn't effect their neighborhoods, but having to pay through ...

re: Winter vacations in Europe Questions - RedStickBR
In Southern Europe now. Have previously been three times during the summer and one time during spring. This is hands down the best time of year to be here. We haven't run into any issues with anything being closed or days being too short, the weather is fantastic, crowds are sparse, and you don't fe...

re: Spice of the Fortnight (SOTF) #5: Amchoor (beg. Nov 13) - RedStickBR
All of these spices came from a dozen or so people who wanted to experiment with them. I only selected a few. We had a string of somewhat exotic ones in the beginning - should get a bit more normal from here on. I do not work for Red Stick Spice Co but would love to when I grow up :lol: Very cool st...

re: Spice of the Fortnight (SOTF) #4: Saffron (beg. Oct. 30) - RedStickBR
Made this Spanish Chicken in Almond Sauce tonight and it was fantastic. The pungent taste of the saffron, the egg yolk and almond paste, the meatiness of the bone-in chicken legs and thighs ... it all combines into an incredibly complex flavor profile. We made a few edits: 1 - we withheld the ...

re: Trump Dinner in China - RedStickBR
I had some incredible duck last night at a James Beard award winning chef's restaurant. The fat layer was left intact and tasted as if it had been infused with brown sugar and caramelized. The duck meat itself was cooked rare. If you cut each bite to include both meat and fat, there was this incredi...

re: Trump Dinner in China - RedStickBR
I was able to find this. As I expected, these things are taken very seriously. [quote]Can China’s chefs charm Donald Trump like they did with Henry Kissinger in 1971? The US president will be served the finest foods China has to offer on Thursday evening, but will any of it have the ‘Peking duck ...

Trump Dinner in China - RedStickBR
This got me thinking. If China is hosting the U.S. President, what's on the menu? I have a good idea what the U.S. might serve if the roles were reversed, but honestly can't say what formal Chinese cuisine would look like. What say ye cultured FD foodies?...
