    Team IV Members will get details of fundraising ideas in the Welcome Package once the Membership has been processed.

    Here is a glimpse of some of these fun ideas which can be done by Families or Groups of Team IV Members:
    1. Pot Luck Dinner - charge guests $10 cover charge (check payable to Immigration Voice). Make this special by picking a specific cusine like Italian or Indian.

    2. Coffee Hour - invite your friends over for coffee, while coffee is on the house, sell baked goods by the slice or by the pan.

    3. Family Membership - get the kids involved with some arts and crafts activity like customizing plastic Christmas globes/decorations and sell these to friends/co-workers. Everyone wants a customized Christmas tree ornament!

    Sound like fun to you, well sign up with Team IV. You get to spend some quality time with friends and family, raise money for IV and by walking/running, lead a healthy lifestyle.

    Every EB applicant knows these basic information.

    I was just getting more information on EB3 India on the net.And found an interesting blog(It makes sense to me and that why i am posting this thread)

    Its a 2006 blog , but it makes sense even today for EB3 India

    Finally that's when you switch on your calculator and start working with the numbers. There are 140,000 visa numbers available under all the employment based categories, with 7% per country limit and 28.6% allocated for EB3 and dependents counted into the numbers, there are only about 115 EB3 primary applicants allowed from India per month. Throw in a few thousand illegals(amnesty) into the mix and now you have the royal screw-up as is happening now. The law allows visa numbers from unused countries to be transferred to the oversubscribed countries but with nearly every category retrogressed this law won't apply for a while.

    The future looks toooo dark even to mention.

    Jago EB3 Indians Jago

    Till early part of 2004 or latter part of 2003, most of the Indians applied EB3 very few applied EB2. After 2004, it was reverse. I doubt any one appled EB3 in 2005 0r 2006.

    If EB3 stays continously in 2001 and EB2 in 2004 (there is 3 year difference in cutoff date between EB2 and EB3 now), the guys with EB3 PD 2002 and 2003 will convert to EB2 by applying new 140 to transfer PD. This flow will balance the cut-off dates. Eventually it will reach a common ground or a break-even point.

    So, when a 485 is pending, can one file for a new LC (under EB2), I140 and have two GC in progress simutaneously?

    For me the agony is endless. My deshi employer did not provide me the EVL in time though I was able to file in JUNE. They gave it to me after JULY 20th when I stopped sending timesheets.

    I am personally not a big supporter of elimination of country quota. Don�t get me wrong. I fully share and understand the endless pain is being gone through by EB3 Indians/Chinese community. Increasing # of EB visa will ease some of their pain.

    For an example there are 1000 IT processionals from India wants to come to US with H1/L1/B1. There are ample companies (say 50) owned by Indian and those 1000 IT professionals have enough opportunities to come to US.
    On the other hand, for an example, from Ukraine, there are 100 IT professionals are trying to migrate to US with H1/L1/B1 but there are few to none companies (say 1 ) owned by Ukrainians and those 100 IT professionals have few to none opportunity to come to US.
    My point is, there are more IT Indians in US do not validate removal of country quota.
    Others should get a fair chance � NO MONOPOLY is desirable.

    Also New Jersey has too may Indians living, may be one day, there can be revolution, and they might ask for a separate country. I am kidding here.

    We are really missing the boat..till Oct'08 FY09 starts..:(

    waiting became routine..

    Hi All,
    Applying for I485 soon. My Moms name is misspelt in my Birth Certificate. Do they cross verify parents name in birth certificate with the names in my passport. If so, please do advice on what I should do?

    Let us start from the basics. I see there is much interest but there are different types of investors/interests here. I will knock off one at a time.
    There are many types of traders, I will write about different trading strategies including factors and key concepts in a series of short posts. I don�t want to post everything in one single post as it makes for a very lengthy read and I don�t have time. You can ask me questions on each post and I can answer them.

    Disclaimer- I am not recommending any strategy but only educating. Risk management is key to avoid burn out.

    Day Traders- They trade intraday and capitalize very short term patterns in stock movement. They are not invertors but gamblers, but semi scientific gamblers (If you can call them that).
    Technical analysis is the key to day trading. Technical analysis states that stocks follow patterns which could be identified and future movement could be predicted. This future movement is only valid for a short period of time. When a pattern forms and is identified, the future movement is called a break out. Some key technical analysis methods are supports, resistances, trading channels, triangles, pendants, diamonds, wedge, head and shoulders, island bottoms, etc etc.. There are also oscillators which are based on mathematical formulas that incorporate historical or recent prices of the stock like Bollinger bands, fast/slow stochastic, KST, Moving average convergence-divergence (MACD), momentum, Relative strength Index (RSI) and Williams %R etc, etc..
    There techniques have been studied to death and have become self fulfilling prophecies. People see a trend and put on bets that the stock will behave in a particular manner and by the weight of these trades the stock does exactly as predicted. Usually day traders specialize in 1 or 2 stocks and no more than 4-5. They study and understand how the stock behaves and utilize these short term trends. You need to go long when you see a trend forming and go short when you see the trend maxing out to catch break outs in either direction. Since you are capitalizing on small price differentials you need to use leverage to make meaningful profits. This makes trading risky. You need to have entry and exit points and trade with discipline. Use algorithmic trading platforms to take out emotions from the trade. Always have a stop out.
    Good reads- Come in to trading room, Equity trader course, Technical analysis of financial markets-by Murphy and many more.

    I don�t know what is so hard about this deadlock. Don�t they know that if:
    1. Illegals are given temporary visas for them to return after a number of years, no-body would come forward. The illegals would see this as shooting themselves in the foot. They would prefer to remain in the dark and live here permanently. Purpose defeated.
    2. A tough enforcement only bill is passed, with the hope that there would be attrition after a while: How long would it take for all 12 million illegals to finally leave? 1 million per year? 500K per year? 24 years? Yeah right! Ok assuming they leave at a rate of 500K per year (which I know wouldn�t happen) what would be the rate of inflow of more illegals?? What would be the balance of illegals after say 10 years? Think about it.
    3. Give them a path to citizenship. Well they are here anyways but this idea might jeopardize the bill.

    So my proposal is: Since �a path to citizenship� is the major road block to this bill, make a law that gives the Illegals an opportunity for GC but include in the law that �Anybody that ever comes into the country illegally CAN NOT become a citizen�. i.e they can get a green card but they can never be eligible for citizenship. I am sure this is a reasonable middle ground�. a path to PR but not citizenship. I am sure those illegals don�t care about citizenship anyways. They just want to be free and be mobile.

    Just my thots.
    I have the same opinion. Strange that no senator has the same idea (except Specter)

    I think PD recapturing is the only solution. We don't know if CIR will pass in 2010 or 2011. Neither do we know that if that is good or bad for legal immigration.
    Guys we should work with IV to get the PD recapture.

    Since CIR is pushed back now , timing is perfect.

    Starsun I would request you to put in another clarification for the benefit of all so that IV Core's stand is well known and published. Predictions & calculations help people to know what the ground reality is and plan their lives. Now we don�t have people on IV whether EB2 or EB3 being sad after every VB because everyone knows when to expect what and predictions and calculations IMHO has gone a long way in correcting that situation.

    I read several posts promoting advocacy which is very good however they take pride in trashing predictions and calculations for no apparent reason it seems to be in fashion / vogue. If advocacy has to be promoted it has to be done in a positive way there is no need to trash predictions and calculations at every available opportunity. Some of these immature comments are very disrespectful to the effort that is being put in my many of us on the predictions blog. If some people do not like what is being done on that blog they are really free not to visit but unnecessary comments should really stop or be moderated.

    Teddy. The intention of such post is to tell people that they need to look beyond spending time on predictions. Predictions can help people know the extent of the backlog. For some it is a motivating factor because they were in the dark until USCIS started publishing data. People used to think their Greencard is round the corner and had no idea about the backlog. So yes the data and estimations have helped get a clearer picture. And this has benefited our community. IV has worked for several months to get the data from USCIS through its agenda item in the past. Today USCIS is publishing data at regular intervals because IV community had participated in a mass campaign to get FOIA data from USCIS. There is a whole history of advocacy behind the data everyone is using for prediction today and it was advocacy that got things done. However they should not get stuck with it and have a more 360 degree view of the issue. For some predictions are a source of encouragement for advocacy work. People leading predictions can play an important role in giving direction to others and help solve the root cause of the problem.They should be urged use it for the advocacy work as well if possible. For example a good research document can be made to illustrate visually the extent of backlogs and wait times. This document can be then circulated to media and lawmaker offices. Do not look at predictions in isolation. Secondly, the data people are using is still incomplete and has lot of assumptions. I had posted some update on the data in the donor forum early this month based on a recent meeting. So predictions we see on the forums will not be fully correct. People need to use predictions as means rather than consider it as an end.

    There isn't much to be calculated for EB3. With spillover practically non-existent for EB3, we can easily calculate our wait times from pending inventory data published by USCIS.

    The only positive development is that 245(i) cases that has been eating into EB3 quota is done with. So dates are no longer stuck at april 2001. We should see a slow but steady movement. Unless some spillover happens once EB2 has become current/close to current, I don't see much hope without legislation.

    For those folks who think of not participating, consider these facts. Aman Kapoor and other IV core folks who already got their GCs are still working for our cause. There are lot of EB2 members among IV volunteers who work for this cause. We shouldn't just think of this as our personal issue. Rather we should consider this an issue for the entire EB community and work to resolve it.

    Hi Guys,

    Need some advice regarding two stocks.

    1) USO -- ETF for crude Oil. It is at about $29.00 but alst year in July it was about 120. IS it a good investment bet. I know I might have to hold it till summer of 2010.

    2) HNSN -- Biomedical device maker. It is the next ISRG, as the reports indicate. They make the sensie robotic cartherer devices. No one else in the world does that. What do you guys think of this ? It is now at $4.50, at its peak it was about $37.00

    Thanks for all the input.

    So much so for this roller coaster ride. Here's the political trend I'm seeing for immigration related bills

    If a senator introduces a immigration bill, Its put off until CIR. All immigration related bills should be together.
    But, when CIR comes to discussion, everyone knows it would never get passed. Too much opposition.

    Is this because of color. May be.

    Note the letter is addressed to chertoff. So even if USCIS do not send all those documents, Chertoff will kick the butt of USCIS to "get the damn thing fixed" before it becomes a bigger issue.

    btw just asked my attorney(from a premier firm)
    "Is this rumour anywhere close to being true? If so how soon do you think a turnaround may possible come?"
    Ans: close...maybe as soon as tmrow or friday.

    Are you talking about the rumour about USCIS not returning applications of this letter by Zoe Logfren? This I dont think is a rumour even thought I have not seen this in any other websites. my 2c
