  • Superga vs Converse - which to buy?

    Which should I get? I was thinking of getting some converse at first but people told me that the shoe isn't very comfortable. The sole is very flat and can be uncomfortable.

    Then someone mentioned about Superga shoes which have very thick rubber soles.

    The only thing is I'm not sure whether they are stylish or not.

    Thoughts?

  • Why am I feeling more tired despite getting more sleep?

    FOr the last 2 years I've been living on 4 hours of sleep on average. Some days I would just stay up all night. But recently I've decided to change my ways and get back on the 7 hour sleep pattern. Somehow, I feel way more tired despite getting more sleep. Why? Should I revert to 4 hours?

  • eastpak vs jansport vs anything else?

    I am looking for a cool and cheap backpack. There is an eastpak sale atm but some of my friends say eastpak is out of trend. Is that true? Always thought it was a timeless backpack. They say jansport looks better but jansport is quite pricey and only the solid colours look good, the cheap ones are the colourful stripey designs.

    Any suggestions of any other nice backpacks?

  • Career in Insurance vs Finance ( accounting,banking,consulting,etc)?

    I am contemplating what to do when I graduate and I was wondering whether there is a lucrative career in insurance. And I don't mean the door-2-door sales segment of the insurance industry. Frankly everyone seems to know a lot about banking as there are lots of publicity from big iBanks like GS, JPM , MS etc. Even consulting and accounting have their big names (Big 3, Big 4), but what about insurance? I don't see much information or hype about careers in this field and I am not really aware which are the top firms? Allianz , AIG , Prudential are some of the few I have heard of but I literally know nothing of career opportunities.

  • Difficult Economics Utility Question involving budget constraint?

    Imagine a scenario where a consumer buys two goods, X and Y. One day, the prices of X went up but Y went down. However, the consumer realizes he still can afford to buy the same bundle of X and Y as before.

    But he wants to know, has the price change made him better off/ worse off/ no different than before?

    The problem with this question is that it does not state the utility function, how consumer views the two goods and the values of income/price. So how do I answer this question ?

  • How to solve this difficult math question?

    Say a phone company has two factories, one in China and another in Vietnam. Factory in China has cost function TC = 90 + 2 (X1) ^2 . Factory in Vietnam has cost function TC = 40 + 6(x2)^2.

    If firm wishes to produce 32 units of phones in the cheapest possible way, how many will he produce in either factory?

    (Note: I can get the answer using trial-and-error but surely there is an accurate mathematical way to solve this problem right? )

  • Hard Drive needs to be check for consistency?

    I got that message saying my c drive needs to be checked for consistency. I followed some internet steps to fix it. However, even though the message is gone, the error seems to still be there. I can't launch VLC player, some computer games, photoshop, etc. They just don't launch and some crash instantly. For example, google chrome will say there is a problem causing google chrome to stop working.

    What do I do? I'm using windows 7 laptop with an SSD.

  • Utility economics question?

    Is the following a true statement? "If you only buy good x and y...and suddenly price of X goes up but Y goes down..and you find u still can afford the same combination of x and y you were buying all along. THe price change has left you neither better or worse off."

    I don't know the right answer, but my initial thought was false because the new budget line will have steeper slope, so original bundle not possible. Thoughts?

  • Windows 7.8 phone vs windows 8 phone?

    Ok, I am looking for a new phone which is good for reading pdf files, has good web-browsing capabilities, decent battery life and good call quality. I am not into games/apps and can't be bothered by how good the camera is, as long as it takes a photo..

    Would it be better to buy :

    a) Lumia 800 + Nexus 7 tablet - ( 150 pounds + 159 pounds = 309 pounds )

    b) HTC Windows phone 8X - ( rumored 350-400 pounds )

    I know some might suggest the lumia 920, but I think it will be out of my budget, and the extra features won't be of much use to me. My dilemma is whether the merits of getting a windows 8 phone can trump the cheaper price of the windows 7.8 lumia 800 and a tablet?
