• Is it common to ask for extensive personal financial info on a lease application?

    We were looking to move into a rental home because our lease term ends at the end of the month. We were surprised to see the landlord wanted very detailed personal information including: 1. Credit card account numbers and balances 2. Bank account numbers, bank's phone number, and balances 3. Other outstanding loan info (car, student,... show more
    We were looking to move into a rental home because our lease term ends at the end of the month. We were surprised to see the landlord wanted very detailed personal information including: 1. Credit card account numbers and balances 2. Bank account numbers, bank's phone number, and balances 3. Other outstanding loan info (car, student, etc), lender names, balances, and account numbers I understand the need to ask for the prospective renter's SSN, Driver's License Number, and some basic info on their debts and assets (amount owed each month, account balances, etc.). We did not choose to rent with this landlord because we were uncomfortable providing that amount of personal information to someone, especially with the increasingly high rate of identity theft and fraud. Is it a common practice to require all of this information for renting an apartment / home? We didn't have to give anywhere near that level of information when we leased our current apartment.

  • How to match amplifer to subwoofers?

    I'm fairly new to car audio, although I've installed a few decks and component speakers in my time, I've never installed subwoofers and an amplifer before. I bought two 10" woofers and a box from a buddy, but I'm not sure what kind of amp to get. The subs are 4 Ohm, single voice coil, 300 Watt RMS each. What would be the ideal... show more
    I'm fairly new to car audio, although I've installed a few decks and component speakers in my time, I've never installed subwoofers and an amplifer before. I bought two 10" woofers and a box from a buddy, but I'm not sure what kind of amp to get. The subs are 4 Ohm, single voice coil, 300 Watt RMS each. What would be the ideal type of subwoofer to get? Should I get a mono or a double channel? How much power should it have and should I install a capacator? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • Newly adopted cat won't eat unless hand fed...?

    We are fostering a 10 month old female cat, technically still a kitten, and for the first few days she didn't eat anything.

    We are fostering a 10 month old female cat, technically still a kitten, and for the first few days she didn't eat anything. Yesterday we tried some different food, Purina One Kitten Chow, and she was more interested in it than the cheap-o dry food we had pout out for her before. But she still didn't eat it from the bowl. I held a piece of food in my hand and she licked it and then took it and ate it. I did that again and she did the same thing, then I took a piece, let her lick it and placed it in the bowl. She looked at it and sniffed it, but she wouldn't eat it from the bowl. I continued to feed her by hand, she had a little food but she walked away and was not interested. Left the food out overnight for her, but I don't think that she touched it. I'm concerned because we've had her now for 4 days. We want to adopt her, because she's a sweetheart, but her lack of eating is worrying me. Any tips?
