Credit Cards / Re: Credit Card Retention Bonuses

Was offered the same.  Didnt take it yet.  $95 statement credit, plus the 1000 bonus points for every $1000 spend.
Any better offers I should aspire to wrangle out of this?  Or take the offer?
Suggestions?

Yes, that looks great to me, too!

Goods For Sale/Trade / Re: IHG or Hyatt points
« on: February 10, 2014, 05:35:25 PM »
A friend of mine is looking to buy either hyatt points or IHG points for a hotel this weekend in Hawaii. He will require either 175k IHG points, or he will need 60k Hyatt points. He could do the cash and points for hyatt and then would need only 30k points. Any help would be great.
would the 2 free Hyatt nights work/help out with this trip?
If so, what is the most that you'd pay for that?

Trip Reports / Re: Weekend Trip to Milan, Italy - Short and Sweet

Just trying to get a feel for whether I should bother getting a camera for my upcoming trip or not - but either way your pictures are great - thanks for the tr :)
I have an SLR and the iPhone 5s.
I used to always travel with the (big, bulky) SLR, however, unless it's a very specific
photo shoot, or a once-in-a-lifetime landmark location, it's been great just having a small iPhone on me. Much more compact, light,
and generally takes satisfactory pictures for most purposes!

Especially comes in handy with easier emailing, etc.. too.

Of course, the problem is that the overwhelming majority of modern sceintist are kofrim, reshoim and shotim.
Most current science publications preach "evolution" and hefkeirus/chaos as a "scientific fact", this publication no doubt is full of the same garbage. (and is therefore most probably ossur to read)

Actually, those who have read the magazine know that it has amazing, cutting edge technology,
creative patented electronic gadgets, and opens up kids minds to new possibilities that we have
the potential to create!

We all can emulate Hashem and use His creations, +improve and elevate the world!

Some of the new practical items that came out were first featured in this magazine (the waterproof music headsets/earphones are the first that come to mind. NOT garbage or kefiros at all -- Rather, let the Yidden be on the forefront of inventions!)

+1 learning about and seeing the Yad Hashem in the world around us can significantly improve ones emunah and belief in the Torah
+1
YES! Absolutely! And, even if we cannot understand it all, we know that Hashem makes it happen.

....we still need to rely at least a 'little bit' on Drs, technology (computers, DDF), etc.  BH Hakodesh Boruch Hu gave us science to figure things out.  p.s. Just for the record, science does not absolve anyone from learning or shteiging!
+1 AGREED!!

I wrote what I did in response to this (which is not the mainstream Jewish approach):
Science? feh! science is for goyim...

Only after that deal ended did we realize the damage it did.  Vihamaivin yavin.
we don't have those stores here or those issues, but it seems like we also need to ACT in moderation, -- what ever happened may be exactly the reason why i posted this earlier:

So, he may need the MS to keep us/this all going.... (If we buy in moderation, all will stay alive, iy"H...)

There is no easy answer here. It is a hard balancing act. Dan should get credit for trying to find the middle ground. 95% of everyone else just post everything.

+1
And/or keep it here for the first 2 hours and then if still alive, can post publicly..

However, if Dan's parnassa is by being paid by hits-per-hour, then the best deals and most hits will need to be posted within the first 2 hours of the deal on the MS.
So, he may need the MS to keep us/this all going....  (If we buy in moderation, all will stay alive, iy"H...)

Science? feh! science is for goyim...
The Aibeshter is in science.. He created it'; He shows miracles every day in it! (teva miracles are sometimes/often higher than 'nes'!)
The more of a genius and "baki"/expert a scientist is, the more he sees and knows about Hashem and His wonders..!!...  :)

Neat!
First time seeing a foosball table that big. Imagine the goalie the whole game...

The photos are great! The Park Hyatt Hotel looks fantastic, European style. Really amazing to be right there in the middle of the city, especially on Shabbos.
(Thinking of where to use my 2 Hyatt nights.. so these TRs are helpful -- Thanks!)

Doesn't look like there is much parking. Do people rent cars? Take taxis?
