$Get a easy loan without credit check: fast payday loans online

Many people wonder whether online payday loans can actually offset overdue payments to other collectors and lenders. Well, a great deal of loan applications get refined everyday, so that people can sustain their daily payments. On the other hand, when a person's profits doesn't support their charges for basic costs connected with living, then they will surely have a rough fiscal road ahead.

Many people wonder whether online payday loans can actually offset overdue payments to other collectors and lenders. Well, a great deal of loan applications get refined everyday, so that people can sustain their daily payments. On the other hand, when a person's profits doesn't support their charges for basic costs connected with living, then they will surely have a rough fiscal road ahead.

Most of times, short-term loans will merely lead people into much more trouble. These loans really aren't mean to huge debts, after many. Instead, they are used to be alternative options having distinct qualifying payoff methods and guidelines. If another person already has trouble assisting their regular expenses with regard to costs of living, then these loans are sure to make things even worse. The most cost-effective technique of using these loans would actually be to pay them off by your next paycheck. So, pay close heed on your finances right now in addition to any upcoming budget costs before considering these loans firstly.

infant car seat/stroller combo recomendation?

Hey all,
Im due in January with my first baby and am clueless about baby products. Any experienced parents have any recommendations for a good (& affordable) infant car seat/stroller combo? Preferably one that has the stroller that grows with the kid?

  • ptpreserves local business owner in Humboldt park

    Thanks you guys! Great info!! Yea, i wanted to maybe see them in person, i will check out some of these suggestions at buy buy baby...

    What worked out best for us was skipping the stroller combos - they can be big and heavy to haul in and out of your trunk a thousand times a day - and instead getting an infant bucket seat car seat (the usual ones with the handle over the top that you can also use to carry around the baby - we always went with Graco but there are plenty) and to pair that with one of those "snap and go" stroller bases - which are VERY light and basically adds a basket to the bottom and handles to push your bucket car seat (and are compatible with a number of different bucket seat carseat brands). And then for the actual car seat, you buy a base for it that you keep strapped into to the car - and then you can just pop out the bucket carseat and snap it into the "snap and go" base and PRESTO - instant stroller (with less bulk/stuff/cost). This combo worked for the entire first year easily (until they grow out of that bucket seat carseat) - and then they are big enough to transition into a regular "umbrella stroller"-type stroller (we liked Maclaren, but there are many - but definitely pick one that lets you recline them back when they inevitably fall asleep). We got that piece of advice when we were starting out and were so thankful as it really streamlined that first year for us! Our place is small, our trunk is small, and that combo really worked for us.

With so many lenders providing short-term cash advances today, finding the right company for you will be much easier if you know how to work with computers and the World Wide Web. Ever since the economic crisis, the cash advance loan industry has grown more and more, especially in the U.S. With so many Americans turning to these loans to help them with their financial trouble nowadays, it really isn't any wonder why the lending community has instantly jumped on the chance to make some fast money at the expense of their borrowers.

Senators, social activists and the government have all seized the rapid growth of this loan industry. Social activists were actually quite quick to realize that the lending community was starting to exploit unfortunate borrowers with expensive lending and impossible terms, though. Because of this, a lot of states in America have made huge changes to the laws involved in short-term lending. So, if borrowers ever plan on looking for legitimate loan companies for cash advances, it would be highly advisable for them to update themselves on the laws that govern the functioning of loan companies in their particular state first.

Graffiti Removal

Graffiti on an unfinished wood privacy fence- already reported to 311 for city removal. I'm really bugged about this. Any suggestions for how to handle/deter this in the future?

  • 8 days? That's slow! I've had it cleared later in the day I file, the next day at the latest.

  • Carter O'Brien lager beer rioter

    They are a lot faster for brick and siding, the wood graffiti removal definitely has a lag. I usually see a few days for the former, but when my alleyside wood fence was hit it took about 2 weeks. That was a decade ago, hasn't been touched since.

Don't Fall Victim to Predatory Lending!

CHICAGO, IL- November 24, 2014 – Predatory lending harms borrowers by luring them with ambiguous language then ripping them off with high interest rates and broken promises. There is no concrete definition of this type of lending which is why consumers need to educate themselves to avoid being financially harmed. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) warns consumers to beware of these lenders.

Mid-intersection street mounted sign Milwaukee at Sawyer went MIA early spring 2014. I asked Alderman Rey Colon about replacement. Answer: ~$500 cost must come from 35th Ward Aldermanic menu funds, not City/CDOT budget. So I contacted Mr. Hilkevitch since:
1. in street mounted signs STOP FOR PEDESTRIANS IN CROSSWALK are visual cue that enhances Pedestrian Safety. Milwaukee Ave location has 25,000 vehicles/day AND is heavily used by pedestrians day & evening on City designated PEDESTRIAN ORIENTED STREET in heart of vibrant Logan Square business district.
2. signs are intrinsically subject to wear/damage and getting plowed over by (idiot) drivers
3. CDOT/City annual budget should anticipate replacement cost for these signs, like replacement of Stop, Tow Zone, No Parking etc which come from City budget, not Alderman ward menu funds
4. Red Light and Schools/Parks cameras bring in ~$100,000,000 per yr. It's not Mayor Emanuel slush fund to plug police overtime etc. Public Safety & real leadership means: take some of that $ and pay to replace damaged signs STOP FOR PEDESTRIANS IN CROSSWALK as needed.

The DUI KING of City Council, Alderman Rey Colon offered this comment in Tribune: "These signs are very popular with constituents who request them often," Colon said. But he said the average life of the signs "is like freshly cut flowers that wither and die."

Alderman: it's time for your political career to do the same.

  • I think those little buggers should grow by three feet, glow like a sci-fi show, and be made of METAL. That would teach people real fast to pay attention and stop running over the little neon man!

  • I dunno...Many people who hit those signs don't take care of their cars anyway, so adding some scratches to go with the speed holes and fart cans (mufflers) won't matter to them...

    Actually in the last year I dont think I have seen or heard people hanging out in the alley at all. Around June of 2013 I got pulled over by multiple cops after briefly driving down the wrong way of Le Moyne to go up the alley to get to my garage, I told the cops I was just accessing my garage to pack up some camping supplies and they pretty much just said OK and that was the end of the stop. I imagine they were staking out the alley for people who come through to buy drugs or something. This may have been the turning point of when the group stopped congregating there all together because as I was saying, over the last year there have maybe only been a couple times if at all that I have seen the group forming there.

After being in our location for 2 years, we've suddenly had mail returned to a couple of different senders with notices like, "address unknown," or they'll say they attempted 3 times, even though there was no notice and I was home each of the dates listed on the "attempt form." I have verified that the address was correct on the letters/packages that were returned.

    Julie, I suggest that -- unless the mis-delivered mail you receive is within a house or two of being correct -- you take it back to the Clemente post office in person. With evidence of faulty delivery in your hand, you have much more power to complain about your own missing mail. When I did this a few years ago, it received much more attention than the simple "my mail is missing" message.

    I agree with the other posters' observations about regular versus substitute mail carriers. The performance of the latter only serves to underscore the notorious reputation of the post office.

    The quality of delivery accuracy to me has improved over the past two decades. However, my experience with neighborhood mailboxes has gone in the opposite direction. At this point, I drop all outbound mail only at the Clemente post office. Forgive me if this is a thread hijack, but I wonder how many others have been likewise trained by negative reinforcement into this habit.

There are more than a couple of drop points near you, including a friend of mine at Kedzie and Spaulding.

Then they went under a porch and carefully broke out a window and stole my Felt MP bicycle (see picture) and a few hand tools. They returned the very next night but I secured the emergency release on the garage door so they ripped holes into the sides of my garage until they made a 12 by 18 inch hole to clime through. This time they were prepared with transportation and removed my snow thrower, air compressor and a stove among smaller items. My garage door had to be replaced because they tried to pry it up destroying it in the process. Please look at my bicycle because it is very rare and only a few sold in Chicago I believe. Thank You.

Maldonado must go! Let's All Get On the Same Page

For those of us who would like to see Alderman MALdonado ousted, I suggest that we 'get on the same page' for the upcoming elections in February if we wish to succeed.

Currently, there are 2 other candidates running against MALdonado. One is Juanita Irizarry and the other is Adam Corona.

The problem with having 2 other opponents is that they could very well "split the vote" thereby allowing MALdonado a win. Yes, I understand that the winner must still...

For those of us who would like to see Alderman MALdonado ousted, I suggest that we 'get on the same page' for the upcoming elections in February if we wish to succeed.

Currently, there are 2 other candidates running against MALdonado. One is Juanita Irizarry and the other is Adam Corona.

The problem with having 2 other opponents is that they could very well "split the vote" thereby allowing MALdonado a win. Yes, I understand that the winner must still secure at least 50% of the vote, and I personally do not wish to see a run-off election (thinking of taxpayer dollars here.)

Remember, the goal is to OUST MALdonado!

My intention with this post is NOT to get into a deep discussion about either candidate, because this is exactly what will lead to a vote split! Bear with me here.... At face value, Irizarry seems way ahead of Corona in terms of community involvement. Also, I spoke with several community leaders that I respect, and they highly recommend Irizarry.
And, one community leader even indicated to me that s(he) has asked Corona to withdraw from the election specifically to avoid a vote-split. If you are not a fan of second-hand information, then I hereby officially ask Adam Corona to withdraw from the election and throw his support behind Irizarry.

So, I suggest that we throw our combined support behind Irazziry. No, I do not work for her. I have never even met her. I just took a quick look at both candidates with info on the Internet and this blog-site. I don't want to over-complicate it. Unless some egregious info surfaces about Irizarry before election day, she's getting my vote. Remember, the goal is to defeat MALdonado. And based on what I am seeing, I think Irazziry is the stronger of the 2 candidates.

Let's do it, together! Let's send MALdonato packing - well deserved and overdue!

    Maldando have claimed that his low income construction projects will bring jobs to the area but the construction crew that they would use in our area would not be from here. So, start approaching big business to support yourselves and all of us.

    You do not seem to have the political connection people expect from politicians but you could develop business connections and that is where you could win. We do not need more politicians. We need better business community so that we can give people jobs and bring them up from their low income and unemployed situation. The present situation is a trap. More low income and unemployed people in an area without jobs is a disaster. More jobs will attract voters.

    I know a politician who have extensive experiences competing in elections for alderman positions in the city of Chicago. If you get started I will put you in contact with this person.

    So if you register yourselves as a contesting alderman and start approaching business let's meet and discuss the competing strategy with the goal to win the election of being the next alderman in Humboldt Park.

    I look froward to hear weather you really are interested or not. It will need a lot of work but then you will get an income of about 100K for as long as you can grab on to the alderman position.

    Also, I have extensive experience in building powerful support for new ideas through local, national and international campaigns.

    With all due respect for Nice Neighbor but the deadline for signature turn in is this Monday the 24th. Any contestant would need to provide around 460 confirmed registered voters from the ward who have not signed for another candidate using petitions provided to them by the board of elections. As the three candidates that are running have already submitted these petitions the odds of finding the needed amount, confirming them and getting them notarized is virtually impossible. At this stage it is more productive to learn about those who are running so people can begin the discourse about what the ward needs.
