Pasadena or Los Angeles ?

If your internship is in Pasadena, then find a place to stay in Pasadena. Los Angeles is only a 10-30 minute drive...depending on where you are commuting from.  (Apr 17, 2012 | post #2)

Class-action lawsuit is latest woe for IndyMac

Go ahead and call the Feds. The FDIC shut down IndyMac, and eventually sold the assets to a NEW entity, One West Bank. The FDIC retain the liabilities of the old IndyMac. The issue here is that many of YOU homeowners got ARM loans, and failed to know the terms. Many got loans based on stated income, and NOT verified income...that means many of YOU lied about income. The current economic downturn has affected home values, but that is NOT the responsibility of any bank. YOU and YOU alone are responsible for repayment of any loan that you signed for. Most of you are in default, behind in payments, etc. and you expect the banks to take those losses with NO repercussions to you. The only people who deserve ANY help are those who were directly affected by the economic downturn with a loss of income that can be verified. I currently work in a law firm that specializes in business litigation, and it always amazes how many people file lawsuits on their foreclosed properties, and yet have gamed the system at every turn to their personal advantage to avoid their responsibilities.  (Apr 14, 2012 | post #68)

You need an education. One West Bank is a NEW entity that bought the Indy MAc assets. They did NOT buy Indy Mac bank. The conduct of Indy Mac is separate from and unrelated to One West. The FDIC took control of Indy Mac, and the FDIC retained the liabilities.  (Apr 14, 2012 | post #67)

Class-action lawsuit is latest woe for IndyMac

If you are in an adjustable rate mortgage, then YOU knew the rules and what could happen. If you didn't know the loan terms...that is YOUR fault and responsibility. The fact that the value of the house has decreased is not your fault, but it is NOT the bank's either. You took out the loan, and YOU have the responsibility to honor your commitment. The banks have NO obligation to take on the loss because YOUR home purchase lost value.  (Apr 14, 2012 | post #66)

Pasadena to re-examine tree policies in wake of destructi...

It's about time that the City of Pasadena's City Manager's Office and Public Works Department get off their collective butts and re-examine the tree policy. There are too many trees that are in serious need of topping and thinning out, or in need of removal due to shallow root systems that cause major damage to sidewalks. On San Pasqual between Mentor and Catalina, there are at least two oak trees that have branches extending over the sidewalks and into the street. The oak on the south side of San Pasqual is so heavy, that the entire tree is leaning into the street, the retaining walls is cracked, and the sidewalk uplifted. It is absolutely amazing that the branches did not snap or the trees topple during the recent windstorms. While it is well know that the City has budget problems, it is also clear that City has dead-weight employees that are more interested in a paycheck for as little work possible!  (Dec 26, 2011 | post #1)

OCCUPY Rose Parade

To Sandy R and Mike 7571: Totally agree, but...it still does NOT excuse bad behavior, lack of common sense, etc. The "occupy" movement seems to want nothing more than total anarchy and a downfall of our "civilized " society.  (Dec 26, 2011 | post #6)

The world's greatest music

The term "classical " music is a misnomer. "Classical " refers to a certain time period in music...from approximately 1750-1830, and overlaps with what is called the "romantic " period. I prefer the terms symphonic or chamber music to describe music...both terms cross all periods of music, and make a general reference to the size of the ensemble (chamber ensembles are smaller and used in more intimate settings; symphonic ensembles are larger).  (Dec 25, 2011 | post #1)

OCCUPY Rose Parade

It's bad enough when the "occupy" movement destroys public property at the expense of all taxpayers, but to degrade and defame an international event that is totally social and NON-POLITICAL is a travesty, and only serves to discredit ANY legitimatcy that the movement has.  (Dec 25, 2011 | post #3)
