Just Shmooze / Re: Vaccine Discussion Master Thread
« on: April 16, 2019, 04:20:52 PM »
I was born in 85, I was vaccinated and I vaguely remember getting a booster I think for camp, Would I be covered?

They need to pull any and all funding from any institution's that allow unvaccinated in
Ask your doctor. I have similar facts (though in my case have a confirmed written record of getting the original MMR vaccine in 87 and a booster in 92) and my doctor just told me,based on blood test, that I am not currently immune to Measles and need to get vaccinated again.

That makes no sense. The same model you drive now, with the same features is available new for less than the price you paid for it.

Not currently able to book an Air Canada economy basic fare online or by phone any recommendations for getting it to price?

My Staples store in south florida only permitted one (and I noticed an official notice to the effect on the employee webpage/blog screen at the customer service screen)

The app says my car has been upgraded from 2018.50.6 to 2019.5.15

So, what's new?
My car asked me this morning what time I wanted to have my update. Will this be the update that unleashes 5% more acceleration?

And now prices and going back up and stores will stay open.

It's always amateur hour at Tesla.
If the pricing on EAP is instructive, people will rush to order their preferred model before March 18th and then on March 19th, the prices will drop further.

Note to self: 
Purchase Model Y after its been out a year.
And don't forget to hold off on AP until they discounted later on.

Lesson learned.
100% agree. People who rushed to take advantage of the larger tax credit got fleeced in the end.

Summary of changes Tesla announced on 28 Feb 2019

Autopilot is now $3,000 instead of $5,000 and it is now called just 'Autopilot' instead of 'Enhanced Autopilot'. 

Cost to add FSD increased from $5k to $7k

Not entirely accurate. EAP, which used to be available for $5,000 pre-purchase, is no longer available. Instead, a pared back version called Auto Pilot with fewer features is available for $3,000. Some of the EAP features have been moved to FSD, which is available for $5,000 (requires Auto Pilot purchase).

While it wasn't included in the core announcement, customers who already have EAP will keep some of the features now part of the FSD package (Navigate on Autopilot, Advanced Summon and Parking Assist) and have the option to upgrade to FSD for $3,000.

Wow, price drop again on the mid-range with premium interior to $40,000 flat and now you can order the $35K model for delivery in 2-4 weeks. The Long Range RWD is available again too.

Instead of selling "Enhanced" Autopilot for $5k in advance of delivery, it's now called "Autopilot" and is $3k with an option to pay up an additional $5k for FSD, which includes some (useless IMHO) features presently available in EAP + others that will be available "later this year".

They even awarded a scholarship for the straight A's on my yeshiva transcript (), effectively matching the in-state tuition of the area public school.
Indeed, the GPA inflation on a yeshiva transcript should not be underestimated.

I was in JFK T8 and this guy approached me asking me if I speak Hebrew. After I said yes he said he lives in Boston, needs to take the Amtrak from Penn Station to Boston and that he left his cc on the plane, couldnt get it and cancelled it. He needs $80 and hell give me his number and pay me back. I feel a little guilty but was kinda not sure how legit he was. I didnt have money either way but took a pic of him just in case... anyone have a similar experience?
Was approached by a similar personality in Atlantic subway station several years ago. Scam.

Pretty compelling, but are you making the case that there are no situations where a company would legitimately need to secure funding somewhere other than the capital or loan markets?
No, just not on an unsecured, subordinated, unlawful and possibly unenforceable basis at about 2% on your credit card. That's equity with no upside or even minority-owner protections.
Why is everyone always saying that if company needs to use credit cards it means they can't get loans or money elsewhere? For some companies, swiping credit cards is a free 30-45 day loan. Their vendor/supplier charges the same amount whether they pay by cash or credit, so why not use a credit card?
Why shouldn't the company get the extra time to pay for the goods and help with cash flow?
Why is the company not using its own credit card? Because the credit card company is unwilling to increase an unsecured line of credit (or worse, provide a line of credit in the first place) to the company (even with the fees and interest rates that credit cards can charge. You really think you're better at underwriting than the credit card company?
