Question by rich: What can I do about disputed credit card charges?
I had a small Christmas bash at the local holiday inn and found out that on dec. 26th they charged me $ 450 for the room and damages. Since they already have the money from my debit card, is there any way to dispute this and get some money back? I dont see any way that much damage occurred and most of the problem was noise complaints. Is there any such thing as a “charge back” or reversing of the charges? Any help on how to deal with this would be great since holiday inn says they are keeping the money.

Yes, you can dispute these charges. You must contact your bank and they will give you step by step instructions. They vary from state to state. Get ready for a fight. Expect it to be like when you are in the hospital and they charge you $ 42.00 for an aspirin and $ 8 for the 2 oz. cup of water to wash it down.

and was wondering just how much money I might get back from the government in the form of rebates since it’s UL listed. If it’s just $ 5, that’s not too exciting. Thanks for reading.

Tennessee doesn’t offer any tax incentives or rebates for residential consumers, however the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority, which supplies power to your local power company) does offer a program where residential customers can sell their green power back for a credit on their electric bill. The price varies based on your power company, but it is in the range of 15-20 cents/kilowatt-hour.

I would say your best bet would be to check with your local power company first to determine the price they would offer to buy your renewable energy. A link to a list of power suppliers is the third source link.

You might also be eligible for a federal tax credit on your system. The credit is for approximately 30% of the total cost, including instillation. A link to a TVA supplied pamphlet on the Federal Solar Tax Credit is the fourth source link.

Hope this helps!

Why did ancient Jews plagiarize the Noah’s Ark myth from the Babylonians?

Question by : Why did ancient Jews plagiarize the Noah’s Ark myth from the Babylonians?
All they did was change the names of the characters in the myth and instead of a local flood, they made it a global flood. What’s the deal with that?

Question by londonrules33: How to locate iPhone if thief is using it to call various #’s?
So here’s the deal: my iPhone was stolen and after checking my recent AT&T usage, it turns out that the thief is using it to call and text a ton of numbers, some of them local and some of them long distance. I have a list of the specific numbers. Most of the numbers he is calling are mobile, though some are landlines. What’s the best way to go about nabbing this thief if there’s a way?? (Please tell me there is)

Hopefully you enabled “Find my iPhone”. If you did, use an iPad or an iPhone (use one that you have signed into with the same Apple ID used on the lost iPhone) download the Find My iPhone app, let it search for your lost device. From there, you can choose to wipe it, lock it, etc. It will also show you where the device is.

But, if you did not enable Find My iPhone, there isn’t really anything you can do. It would be best to access your iTunes account and disconnect your credit card, etc. and also call AT&T and report the phone stolen. They will turn off the ability for the phone to connect send texts or make calls.

Are there any special ways to make coffee at home?

Question by Doll: Are there any special ways to make coffee at home?
I don’t put sugar in my coffee, but I do like sweetners in my coffee such as Coffee Mate’s French Vanilla with a dash of fontana white chocolate mocha sauce (same sauce starbucks uses)

I only stated what I like since maybe someone can recommend something for me based on my taste.

What coffee styles would you recommend for me to make at home? How do you make it?

Answer by ChatRoomKiller
Fresh ground, (yourself) with a french press is much better than in a coffee maker. You can try different types or varieties of coffee too.

Get a electric grinder and french press at you local discount store. Target, Walmart etc. And you can start looking at your supermarket or liquor stores for whole beans. The best places have their own coffee roasters in house. Some people like flavored coffee, with pecan or hazelnut. You can try different roasts, strong (like french or expresso) or more milder. Try coffee from different parts of the world like Jamaica Blue Mt, Sumatra, Ethiopia, Honduras or Hawaii-Kona. I personally like Kenya AA the best… taste a little like red wine to me.

Grind a couple scoops in your grinder and toss into the french press. Should make your kitchen smell great at this point. Add hot water but not boiling hot or you’ll burn it. Stir, put the lid on the lid and wait about 3 min for it to seep. You should get a nice foam on top from the beans. Press the screen down on the press slowly, to not allow the grounds out and pour a cup.

I have to warn you that it makes all the canned coffee taste like crap now.
I went from this to my own Expresso machine a few years ago. I still like a good “vintage” cup of Kenya AA every so often.
