I have near perfect credit. I only use my Discover card that I have rewards on and pay off the balance every month. I do have a credit card from a credit union that I never use.
I just received a letter in the mail that stated that the credit union credit card is about to expire and won't be reissued due to inactivity.
Will this affect my credit? If I don't care about the card, should I just let it "die"?

I won a prize in an online drawing from a small business. (The prize is something I want, and I don't want to sell it or give it away.) The stated value of the prize is $750 (and I've confirmed that is what it would actually cost if I were paying for it—the price is not inflated for the prize). How can I determine what taxes I will need to pay on this, given that I pay taxes in NYC, New York State, and federally? posted by ocherdraco at 7:17 AM - 3 answers
I have two webcomics and a few assorted other sites, so I am interested in hearing from anyone who regularly updates a site they own/run. Tell me how often you update. Tell me how you file away ideas, develop ideas, whatever. Tell me what kind of site it is. Etc. What works for you? [more inside] posted by Michele in California at 3:21 PM - 6 answers

I just got a great job at a federal facility as a non-federal employee. Because I'm going to be working in a federal building, I need a background check, physical, and (presumably) drug test. I've smoked pot in the last month, although not many times in the past several months – I shouldn't trigger a concentration-based drug test, but I could trace positive for trace amounts. I feel totally comfortable about the drug test, unless they disqualify me for /any/ amount of THC, I should be fine. The problem comes with the background check, which asks me if I've done any illegal drugs in the past year. [more inside] posted by anonymous at 5:59 AM - 27 answers
The only suits I see on my commute are very young guys, recent-grad-looking, with trying-to-look-expensive shoes. What kind of jobs do they have? Are they paralegals? Entry-level-finance? (what would that even mean?) [more inside] posted by colin_l at 8:22 PM - 25 answers

A young relative who recently started a job as a CNA at a nursing home has been suspended because of a patient complaint. She has no idea what the complaint was or who made it, nor can she recall any unusual incidents or patient interactions. The director of nursing told her she cannot give details at this time, but told her she is suspended and that she's to come in for a meeting on Friday at a specified time. What can she expect? (I'd like informed answers only. Please do not answer if you are merely speculating.) posted by anonymous at 3:32 PM - 11 answers
I'm having business cards made, and I want them in a mini size (like 70mm X 28mm). But I can't seem to find a union print shop online that does cards with smaller dimensions like that. (Obvs I want a union bug). Thanks, hive-folk! posted by univac at 3:32 PM - 5 answers

I have things I'd like to do outside of USA every fall, so I'm wondering if I can take all the courses that I need For this 5 semester paramedic degree at Austin Community College during only spring and summer semesters. It seems that last year all required courses were offered in the 2013 summer semester But it seems that this summer they are not offered. I emailed their listed address but there was no response. Also is there any way to do it faster than 5 semesters? Can I double up the 4th and 5th semesters (since they're short)? and any tips for me doing this in my non-standard pattern of only doing summer/spring semesters and skipping fall semester?
