Make sure the contract is in English and that you can have some one explain it in detail to you and record that when they do.

Would the English even count?  Around here, only the Chinese part counts.  Contracts that are in Chinese and English often say very different things in each language.

How to make friends:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, cream together 1 cup butter, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup brown sugar. Beat in 2 eggs one at a time, then stir in 1 tsp vanilla.
In a separate bowl, mix 2 cups flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda and salt. Stir dry ingredients into creamed butter and sugar. Add chocolate chips.
Drop by spoonfulls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until awesome.

There's a party at Sweets Paradise in Shibuya at 10pm on Thursday, August 21, 2014.
Chitose kaikan 1F, 13-8 Udagawacho Shibuyaku, across the street from the pizzeria.

Everybody's invited.

I know this is very late notice, but what can you do.

Are you asking if we're interested in you wanting to buy something?  I can't speak for anyone else, but I doubt very many people would be too excited about it.

Big cities like Chicago, New York and Los Angles have very different neighborhoods with very different prices.  Saying that one is more expensive than another ignores a lot of factors.  Rent in Washington Heights is probably cheaper than in Bel Air, but that's just misleading.

Hi,i m Jason And i read ur post. I m italian And actually i live in Italy.
I was wonder how about to wrk in USA seasonally as foreign worker in fields? Like in Hawaii for coffee or pineapple,they say that Every Years a lot of foreigner worker are hire for a short time cause loco people not always wanna do this kind of job.
My question is: how can i find this mind of sponsorship?

I doubt any company in Hawaii would pay you in coffee or pineapples, but did you mean "loco people" or "local people"?  Sometimes there's a subtle difference.
