I read your article about 529 withdrawals for a computer and had a question about eligible expenses. My daughter goes to a community college. Can I withdraw money from her 529 for her tuition and other expenses, or does she have to attend a four-year college to be eligible? Also, does she need to be a full-time student to qualify?

Gender bias prevents female coders from being judged solely on their work. Their work might be great, but the fact that they’re women makes it less desirable. That’s according to a new study published this week that looks at how gender bias plays out in software development. A hot topic to be sure given that just 20% of software developers are women — and that tech firms have increasingly promised to do better when it comes to inclusion efforts. The study, conducted by a team of six computer science researchers, looks at 3 million suggested code contributions (called “pull requests”) on GitHub. GitHub is a popular open-source software platform used by 12 million developers to collaborate, critique, and ask questions about coding projects.

In some ways, this is a boring time in insurance investing. A lot of companies seem cheap on a book and/or earnings basis, but they have a lot of capital to deploy as a group, so there aren’t a lot of opportunities to underwrite or invest wisely, at least in the US. Look for a moment at two victims of theFinancial Stability Oversight Council(FSOC) AIG and Metlife. I’ve argued before that the FSOC doesn’t know what it is doing with respect to insurers or asset managers. Financial crises come from short liabilities that can run financing illiquid assets.

The failure had far less to do with the product than with the sales strategy… Is Guidance Too Conservative or Is It Really This Bad? We get that Me failed to sell well in South Korea with the 12-month cartridge commitment. But given the strength in reps globally, the strength of Youth from its two LTOs in 2H15, and good results from Me when sold in Japan without the 12-month commitment, we wonder if guidance is aggressive to the downside. Indeed, the word “conservative” was said a lot by mgmt on the brief earnings call … Continue reading
