Ground zero for dead children,
To be utterly clear, vaccination of newborns for hepatitis B saves lives. This is not some model, made up by a conspiracy of researchers seeking federal dollars. This is reality.
I think the issue in question here is how many more lives it saves compared to vaccinating at age 14 instead. My understanding is that the medical community pushes the hep-b vaccine on young children not because they are at risk of exposure while young, but because they are at risk of not ever getting vaccinated and therefore at risk later in life. On average it's a good policy.

Buy a house now or wait? (San Diego),
Iíve been very fortunate to find a great job and kept a low overhead which has allowed me to save quite a bit over the last 4 years.
ideally purchase a $425k-ish complete fixer upper with 20% down and fix it up from there.
That sounds very familiar - it's what I did. I'm in the thick of the "fix it up from there" phase. I'd do it again, but I can tell you that it is disheartening to go from being able to save significant amounts of money and have significant amounts of free time to saving 0 (or going further into debt) and having absolutely no free time. I think it will be worth it in the end (we will have a house much nicer than we would have been able to buy otherwise), but it has been a slog. A lot will depend on how much fixing up it needs (ours needed a bit of everything and a lot of some things), and how quickly you plan to get it done.
I can't speak to current market conditions or trajectories in SD..I feel like we almost missed the boat buying in early 2013 Denver...couldn't afford anything we'd want at this point.

China's trillion dollar stimulus is working,
We should know the history. There was a roaring 20's which is followed by the depression and 2 World Wars.
Was there a World War 1-1/2 that nobody told me about? Or perhaps a World War 3?
