Up In The Air / Re: AA miles mileage on BA
« on: February 21, 2018, 01:48:35 PM »
i am a newbie with redeeming mileage tickets, and was wondering if there is anyway to use my AA mileage to book a flight using avios?

only asking as a chi-nyc ticket costs 25,000 aa points vs only 15,000 avios.
And a simple google search would’ve given you that info...

At the end of 2017 the new rental law went into effect whereby brokers can not bill the renter a brokers fee if he was working on behalf of the landlord. If your agent is demanding an agent fee and they are known to be working on behalf of the landlord you do not have to pay, the landlord must pay. Don't let the agent helo the landlord take you for a ride!

Additionally tenants aren't required to pay for any improvements to the apartment or to the infrastructure serving the apartment other than operational management and overhead. If your Vaad Bayit is super high and they are using the money for capital improvements tell the Vaad Bayit to contact the landlord for payment.
Would you know where I can find out more info about this law ? Tia

On The Road / Re: Car Rental Corporate Codes Roundup
« on: February 18, 2018, 08:54:54 AM »
USAA will NOT send you a card, unless you are a "verified member" (veteran, active service, dependent of/for either of those, etc). To rent with USAA, you have to use their AWD, and if they ask for ID is YMMV, obviously bigger chance they'll ask in the tristate area.
According to the usaa Avis page the discount is to all members....what do you mean by id? A military Id ?

From Wikipedia
“Gun laws in Israel are comprehensive despite soldiers being allowed to carry their service weapons on or off duty. Civilians must obtain a firearms licence to lawfully acquire, possess, sell or transfer firearms and ammunition.

Only a small group of people are eligible for firearms licenses: certain retired military personnel, police officers or prison guards; residents of frontier towns (in the West Bank and the Golan Heights) or those who often work in such towns; and licensed hunters and animal-control officers. Age requirements vary: 20 or 21 for those who completed military service or civil service equivalent, 27 otherwise, and 45 for non-citizens. Firearm license applicants must have been a resident of Israel for at least three consecutive years, pass a background check (criminal, health, and mental history), establish a genuine reason for possessing a firearm (such as self-defense, hunting, or sport), and pass a weapons-training course.[51] Around 40% of applications for firearms permits are rejected.[52]

Those holding firearms licenses must renew them and pass a shooting course every three years, and undergo psychological assessment at least once every six years. Security guards must pass these tests to renew their license to carry firearms belonging to their employers.[53] Applicants must demonstrate that they have a safe at their residence in which to keep the firearm. Permits are given only for personal use, and holders for self-defense purposes may own only one handgun and purchase an annual supply of 50 cartridges (although more may be purchased to replace rounds used at a firing range).[54]

In addition to private licenses of firearms, organizations can issue carry-licenses to their members or employees for activity related to that organization (e.g. security companies, shooting clubs, other workplaces). Members of officially recognized shooting clubs (e.g.: practical shooting, Olympic shooting) are eligible for personal licenses allowing them to possess additional firearms (small bore rifles, handguns, air rifles and air pistols) and ammunition after demonstrating a need and fulfilling minimum membership time and activity requirements. Unlicensed individuals who want to engage in practice shooting are allowed supervised use of handguns at firing ranges.

Most individuals who are licensed to possess handguns may carry them loaded in public, concealed or openly.[51]

In 2005, there were 237,000 private citizens and 154,000 security guards licensed to carry firearms. Another 34,000 Israelis own guns illegally due to their failure to renew their firearms license.[55][56] In 2007, there were estimated to be 500,000 licensed small arms held by civilians, in addition to 1,757,500 by the military, and 26,040 by the police.”

It looks like a PR stunt by the NRA, this only happened a few years ago.
Definitely a PR stunt but you are still not right...

http://time.com/4390506/gun-control-ar-15-semiautomatic-rifles/ I don't hunt, but it seems to me that hunters like the AR15
 I read the entire article before posting it. All I was saying is that IMO the second amendment would cover fully automatic guns, I don't claim with certainty that it's true, I even said that the supreme court disagrees. (I am in no way an expert in constitutional law)
So even the nra supports a ban but you smarty head don’t. I get where we’re standing...

You didn’t even read the full article
“even the NRA backs certain gun control proposals, particularly with regard to fully automatic machine guns”
Now defend yourself
