Re: New member, but "old" reader

One person's opinion (and I'm trying to say this in a friendly way) -- I would have to recommend that you re-examine your preconceptions from first principles with the conscious intent to change and adapt them to the realities of your goals. That is to say, if the need to learn Spanish was a deal br...

Re: Newbie

There is no reason for messing around with the taxi on the street at the airport. Go to the official taxi desk before you leave security. Pay with a credit card and get voucher. ... If you need a taxi day to day, we have had good experience with easytaxi.com app. Works like uber, but with licensed ...

Re: u.s. immigration and children

"It takes one department of homeland security rent a gaurd at the boarder that thinks they are God, and your kid will be sucked in to the u.s. judicial black hole." That's what "Child Protective Services" in every state and city in the US have been doing for decades. They receive a bounty for bringi...

Too bad these countries will never sit down and negotiate new trade agreements.

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

These ratings are all from others. All I did was average them... It's difficult enough to tease out the few objective factors in the ratings (and any other study) from among all the subjective noise and value judgements. Arithmetically averaging disparate factors further destroys meaning and propag...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

...I honestly don't know what it would cost, but can't hurt to run the numbers... That would be my main point: let the unemotional numbers guide the decision without preconception.

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

What about installing a large liquefied gas tank with piping and individual meters for the entire community? Eliminates traffic from gas bottle delivery companies and might be cheaper vs. bottled since you're buying wholesale. 15% mark-up? Good idea but not so easy to build a case for the large inv...

Re: North Korea

Don't forget that South Korea is quietly preparing for reunification. They will dominate a One Korea and have the second most to gain. The North Korean people have the first most to gain. The world praised Obama with a Peace Prize for doing nothing (and he worked against peace). When that same world...

Re: Searching for best projects.. Opinions Please?

Considering the economic demographics of Chile, there may be opportunities for self service "laundromats" in the right areas, but I don't know if they are already commonly available.
