Anyone else getting absolutely raped?
Judging by Cramer's face today, you're not the only ones.
What does /biz/ think of Turtle Trading? I was at like a 2 hour talk earlier where a guy was pushing it really fucking hard and it's got me curious.
I have $100k and I want to start the next google... how do I do it?
hey /biz/ I'm currently about to release a small project I've been working on where I sell the basic code framework and a small guide for collecting emails on a webpage, I'm no expert so I'm going to literally sell it as-is for around £4.99 each.
How do I get traffic for this sort of thing, cold calling companies? is that even legal in the UK?
How can I expand on this operation, note that I'm no expert in coding but am willing to put in a bit of time to create a sellable product like the one I'm about to release.
You have a shit product, and you can't sell it because it's worthless. I doubt your guide is any better than just looking up a free guide where they can learn it for free.
If you want to monetize on your plebian talents, make a blog or YouTube channel where you explain these retardedly simple projects and cash in on ads.
What do you do when somebody attempts to take all the credit for your creation? I basically got my own Winklevoss that tries to take all the credit for my success. His own invention is utter crap btw. But mine he says 'its only good because of him, you wouldve never done blah blah w/out me'. It is the most pathetic thing I ever experienced. Why the hell won't they just go away?
Ask a man who lost 10k last night betting on greyhounds anything.
Anyone else here that doesn't do anything productive during work?
I'm a software dev at a startup and I spend 90% of my time browsing the internet, compiling or playing on my PS Vita.
I feel guilty from the fact that I earned 81k last year doing jack shit. 2 days ago I even got an offer to join a trading company in Kansas. I feel like cheating.

Why wouldn't I want to see Martin Shkreli arrested and put out of business? Doesn't it help me?
He forces insurance companies to pay a ton for his drugs. In response, insurance companies have to charge higher premiums. I have insurance. His pricing strategy benefits himself, but it harms me because I have to pay more to my insurance company.
So why wouldn't I want to see him get fucked? It's in my financial benefit just like it's in his financial benefit to charge higher prices.
I am not american so I might be wrong but afaik you don't have drug prize regulation policy, I know this does not excuse Shkreli but what he done in a second (rise) is just what could be expected to be done by everyone more slowly but at the end of the day cost you even more.
Will SUSIBA2 be the future of sustainable agriculture? Or maybe, all wet rice cultivation
>Paddy fields emit more methane than livestock does, the warmer the environment, the more emission as a result of anaerobic micro-organisms. This GMO rice was designed to fight global warming by storing more starch in the seeds instead of the roots (where the micro-organisms live).
Hey guys. I've got an idea for a mobile app that I think would be wildly entertaining and profitable with advertising revenue. While I'm an IT guy in the real world I have absolutely no coding experience nor any idea where to begin to develop an app.
Looking for someone who'd be willing to partner up on this and put it together for an equal split of the profits. Any idea where I should look for potential developers that would be willing to do such a thing?
Hire a Pajeet or 3, keep them compartmentalized without giving any of them the entire picture. Pay them pennies while you rake in the real profits.
Hire a 4th Pajeet to check their code though and document it with comments and all that jazz.
so i finally after about a year of applying to lockheed i was noticed. which was a win in itself as they really seem to do their homework even before contacting somebody.
i had a phone interview and passed.
just did a pretty intense in-person group interview.
it's for subcontracts.
i believe if i get it this job i should be making close to 60 grand a year. i also really like that they do a 9/80 workweek, which is every other friday off. so i could have time to pursue other interests like investing.
I live at home with...

are you even certain that you will have 40k left at the end of the year? And you should move out from your parents house, makes a far more professional impression (and also increases chances of gf).
leftovers should go into a savings account, or invest it into funds yourself if youre experienced at it.
so? i have a good chance of getting it and want to start thinking about it. what's wrong with that?
no you're right probably at least 30 though since i don't do a whole lot and i plan on staying home till 29-30 at least, one, to help out my mom, two, to start investing.
im already pretty close to the facility as well and i do have a girlfriend.
What is the /biz/ consensus on APICS and their CPIM certification?
It sounds like a scam to me - I should know, since my mother is involved in the organization. They 'sell' courses to people (usually people in logistics management) in order to prepare them for a test (made and administered by APICS) to receive a certification (from APICS). I don't trust my mother telling me how 'great it is and how employers love seeing it on your resume and they think it is very prestigious!' since her job depends on selling these courses (plus the field I wish...

From what I hear ya moms is probably on to something in regards to résumé building. It's nice to have but probably not that vital. People here will say not its not needed and they'd be right too. There are positions at my company that require it to progress. If you can get it just get it.
I have the CSCP certification. The certification is desireable by employers during the hiring process, but I didn't learn much in the way of new skills because of it. The credits to keep it current are annoying, but not a huge problem.
Bottom line, if you're looking for a job it's good to have, if not it really doesn't do you much good.
Unless you're planning on entering the very specific supply-chain management (which most people are promoted into, rather than entering), pretty useless. Plus what they teach is pointless and basic stuff which they like to disguise with long words to make it appear complex.
In other words, pretty much a scam.
where were you when linkedin was kill?
What is better after Majoring in STEM degree? Continue with PhD or start 2 years MBA? I already have job, just want to take it to the next level.
