Link Love

There’s a law in TX that says that any poster donated to a school that says “In God we trust” must be displayed (separation of church and state doesn’t seem to exist in TX?).  Here’s a go-fund-me to get those signs in Arabic and rainbow.

How to incentivize teams when the members are of different ability levels.

Still working on opening a Roth IRA for DC1.  Will report back if/when we’re successful.

    Hunh. I helped DC open a Roth IRA earlier this year at our CU with no difficulty. I’ll admit that my main priority was getting it opened i.e. created (remember, I’m a satisficer extraordinaire, and I failed to help him get this done last year when he also had some earned income, which obviously was not a good outcome, even for a satisficer). At present it has a whopping $60 in it and is an ordinary savings-account sort of thing, but apparently once it gets to $3500 there are other investment options (i.e. stocks, mutual funds — I don’t really know the details in all honesty, but our CU is generally pretty good about what kinds of things it offers, if it offers a thing at all). But I’m mostly interested in helping him get whatever money he can, in there for now and sorting out the where-it-should-be-invested part later.

    The CU staff member who helped us could not have been better had I hired an actor to come in just to play the part of getting this set up. He was SO enthusiastic about helping a teenager opening a Roth and the ***value of compounding***. He was brilliant.

    I am very interested in the IRA set up update! I’m not sure what JB or Smol Acrobat would do for earned income as teens but I’m interested anyway.
