Ah, Texas, My Beautiful Romance

Texas. The very name strikes vivid images of a wilder time, a time when the country was still new and finding its heat. A time when the soul of the west rest upon a man’s hip. When troubles and disagreement could be solved at high noon on a dusty road, where the shadows stretched far as if to escape the inevitable echoes of gunshot. Where Indians and robbers raided small towns. Where heroes were made. That’s the Texas I fell in love with and why I made my home there after I saw pflugerville homes for sale. How could I not? The place calls to my heart like the moon sings to the poet. This place is full of history and adventure, more so than any other state that I feel. With Mexico bordering its deserts, it receives more of a cultural influence than the rest of the nation can say.

There is a real diversity here. A place where many beliefs can come together under one flag.

Ways To Save Money For Retirement

What is marginal economy?

Think it this way, which do you need more, gold or water?

Of course you need water more.

Which one will you pay more money for? One kilogram of gold or one kilogram of water? Of course, gold.

Why?

Thats because in economy, only the marginal matters. What does that mean?

Water is precious.

However, the value of water is the value of that least useful water that you still use anyway.

You use water to drink, you use water to take a shower, you use water to water your plants, then you use water to wash your car.

Obviously, the water that you drink is much more useful than the water that you use to wash your car. However, the value of water is the value of that least useful water.

Why is it so?

Thats because youre trying to maximize your profit. Of course, you use your water for whats the most useful first.

Yes, but why is the value of water so low?

Say the value of water is higher than that. Say it is $5 per gallon. The satisfaction youll get from washing your car is $1 per gallon. Then you simply dont wash your car.

Say the value is lower than that. The satisfaction of washing your car is $1 per gallon. However, water is so abundant that its cost is only $0.50. Then yo?ll use water for stuffs that give even less satisfaction, such as washing your house.

In fact, water can be so abundant that the price is negative. A negative price means that youre willing to spend money to get rid of that water. Such is the case during a flood.

In which case, youll actually spend money to get rid of water, such as buying water pumps. Thats what happened to one of my grandmas because her house is often flooded.

Whats the moral of the story? Be rare. When youre rare, youre valuable. When youre not rare, youre worthless.

How To Find A Financial Advisor

If you want to get guaranteed car loans even with bad credit, then scroll below for some pointers on how to avoid the credit inquiring pitfall.

Guaranteed Car Loans: Get a copy of your credit report.

Purchasing a copy of your own credit report can help you get guaranteed car loans. A lender can pre-approve you for a guaranteed car loan by faxing him a copy of your current credit report. If the first lender rejects your request, you can go ahead and apply at different lenders until you find one that accepts you.

Guaranteed Car Loans: One inquiry is better than two.

Before completing the guaranteed car loan process, the lender would most likely perform a final perfunctory check on your credit report. But that should be okay since its only going to be one inquiring on your credit record instead of two or three. Remember that the more credit inquiry you have, the greater the chance that your credit rating will drop.

Guaranteed Car Loans: A purchase is not an inquiry.

When you purchase your own credit report, it wont be considered as an inquiry. So by doing this, you avoid adding more damage to your credit. This is why in guaranteed car loans it is always a good idea to know what your credit report is in advance. Whats more, if you have your credit report before applying for guaranteed car loans, you can check it for any errors.

Ways To Save For Retirement

Whenever a person buys or leases a car, he seeks ways to finance this move. Most auto financing involves a car loan, which entails a detailed check on his credit history and a tough interview about car finance. When he undergoes all these to buy a used car, it is only fair that he also performs his own investigations about the car he is going to buy. In fact, he should never consider buying a used car, which history has not been checked. If he does, he may just end up paying for a piece of junk.

A used car must be checked for its title, registration, odometer, and the problems that it had weathered before it reached your eyes. A title check will determine if the car is salvaged, flooded or rebuilt. For example, many cars were destroyed during the 9 -11 World Trade tragedy. Many cars, too, were damaged during the hurricanes and floods. These cars were salvaged by enterprising people. The cars will be rebuilt and sold again at car auctions. A title check will also discover if the used car has lemon history.

A registration check will determine if the used car has been used as a fleet car, or as a taxi, or even as a police car. If the used car has been utilized in any of these, then it is safe to say that within a given period of time, this particular used car has covered more miles than the average privately used car. A registration check will also reveal if the used car was ever rented or leased.

The cars odometer is an instrument used to measure the distance traveled by a vehicle. An odometer check will show if the odometer has been broken or fraud. It will also show if it has been rolled back or rolled over. If the odometer has been tampered, this does not bode well for the next owner of the used car. The car may be older than what the dealer is telling you. Or it may have mileage problems.

A problem check will determine if the used car has sustained fire damage or an explosion. It will also show if it has been involved in a major accident. The fire or accident may have inflicted a still undetected damage on the used car. It is also quite creepy to use a car that has cradled dead bodies before. A problem check will reveal if the car has been stolen. A car that has been stolen may no longer have all its original parts.

A used car may give you more problems than you can manage. But not all used cars are damaged, leased or stolen. This is why there are still many people who take out car loans to buy a used car. To be safe, the potential buyer must order a vehicle history report.

Retirement Saving Tips

Just about everybody has heard of identity theft, but most people do not believe it could ever happen to them. The fact is, identity theft is more common than most believe. Its not hard for identity thieves to obtain all of the information they need in order to assume another persons identity, but it can be made a whole lot harder for them if people remain smart and protect themselves as completely as possible.

When it Happens?

If a person becomes a victim of identity theft, it can take a long time – possibly years – to recover from it. It can also cost the victim thousands of dollars as well as ruin their credit score. Usually, its nearly impossible to recover from identity theft in a quick manner because many things have to be resolved before forgiveness will be given by the three major credit reporting companies in the United States.

If identity theft does happen, the person who is the victim will probably experience problems obtaining any sort of financing (mortgage, car loan, student loan, credit cards, etc?). And, the worst thing that can happen is that the victim of identity theft can even get arrested for crimes he or she did not commit.

All of the results of being a victim of identity theft are not fair, and are very difficult to resolve. Being a victim can be a real headache and can basically interrupt or stall an innocent persons life for several years. So, the best possible thing is to do is to try and do anything and everything to prevent becoming a victim in the first place.

Protect Personal Information

The easiest way for identity thieves can assume another persons identity is to obtain personal information from a potential victim and use that information to fill out loan or credit card applications.

While most victims do not offer thieves their personal information, they are not aware that their information is contained on many documents that they have not disposed of properly. For example, thieves have been known to go through peoples trash cans looking for personal information. When papers are thrown away without being shredded, thieves can retrieve the information and use it.

Thieves are also known to go through peoples mailboxes to obtain in-coming letters from banks and/or credit card applications and use the data from these various pieces of mail to apply for loans or credit with the stolen information.

In-coming mail is not the only source of mail-related information that thieves can acquire. Out-going mail that is placed in a persons mailbox for the mailman to pick up and take to the post office is a great source of information for thieves. When a flag is placed in the upright position on a mailbox to indicate that letters are inside waiting to be mailed, its like a signal to thieves that they should come on over and steal it. Therefore, letters should always be mailed in a post office mailbox instead of a personal/home mailbox.

Other Ways to Prevent Identity Theft

Its not difficult to perform some easy steps to prevent being a victim of identity theft. In addition to properly disposing of paper containing personal information and mailing letters at the post office, following are some additional tips:

1. Always destroy receipts, credit card applications, tax information, canceled checks, and mortgage information before throwing it away. This means completely shredding it or even burning it before it reaches the trash can.

2. Even if a credit card is expired, cut it into tiny little pieces before throwing it away. Some people throw half of the tiny pieces into one trash bag and half into another trash bag.

3. Report stolen credit cards immediately to credit card companies. Dont wait an entire day? Do it the minute theyre discovered to be missing.

4. Monitor credit reports on a regular basis, and watch for anything suspicious. If anything out of the ordinary appears, investigate it right away.

A personal blog will definitely help your customer find the comfort level they are looking for with you. And best of all, they are as much fun as they are invaluable to your business.

Retirement Budget Worksheet

Cuts to the Medicare budget may be the most threatening surgery of all for patients in need of medical imaging services.

Congress made deep cuts earlier this year in reimbursement for many medical imaging services that Medicare patients receive in physician offices and independent imaging centers.

Experts fear these cuts will mean less access and higher costs for many patients, especially those in rural areas.

Congress, say advocates, should impose a two-year moratorium on the cuts in order to more fully understand their impact on patients.

Starting in 2007, imaging services will be reduced by Congress by some $8 billion over 10 years. Those reductions represent more than one-third of the total Medicare cuts in the 2005 Deficit Reduction Act.

The payment reductions affect a wide range of medical procedures and tests provided in physician offices and imaging centers. For example, reimbursement would be cut:

35 percent for ultrasound to guide less-invasive breast biopsies;

50 percent for PET/CT scans used for diagnosing and managing tumors;

40 percent for bone density studies for diagnosing osteoporosis; and

42 percent for MR angiography that detects aneurysms in the head.

Given the size of these and similar cuts, advocates warn that many physicians will likely discontinue or cut back on the imaging they provide in independent imaging centers or their own offices. If this happens, patients will have to seek these services at hospitals, which can be much further away and often involve higher out-of-pocket costs for patients. As a result, convenient access to services that many Medicare patients rely on will no longer be available.

Its believed that patients in rural areas are likely to be the hardest hit.

Unfortunately, say advocates such as the Access to Medical Imaging Coalition, these reductions were made without public hearings, public debate or open discussion. The reductions were made without public participation, even though they will likely affect the lives of many Medicare beneficiaries.

Instead, the Coalition believes Congress should impose a two-year moratorium on imaging cuts, so the Government Accountability Office can study the issue.

Types Of Retirement Accounts

Traditional surety bond underwriting does not allow for any losses. In other words, applicants are only suppose to be approved for a bond if the underwriter believes there will be no claims. This differs from insurance underwriting, as a loss is expected and is built into the premium. Higher risk applicants are usually declined or asked to post 100% collateral with the bond. The surety bond market is starting to see some change in how bonds are underwritten. However, these forward thinking sureties are in the minority and are difficult for the average principal to find.

As stated above, according to traditional surety underwriting bonds are suppose to be written as a service fee, not insurance. Therefore, there are not suppose to be any claims expected, as it is not built into the premium. Unfortunately, the surety ship guidelines are not reality and losses do occur, even the most conservative bonding companies.

Surety bonds have been around for quite some time and we know that losses are inevitable no matter how good the underwriting is. If losses are inevitable, then why not change the underwriting philosophy? If a principal is considered to be a higher risk, then a higher premium rate should be applied. This thinking goes against traditional surety underwriting as losses would then be built into the premium.

I cant say that approving surety bonds to high risk clients at a higher rate is a new idea. In fact, we have been working with bonding companies that have successfully written high risk surety bonds for years. The rates are roughly 10-15 times higher for commercial bonds, but are usually still the best alternative for most that fall under the program. I can honestly say that we have seen little claims under the high risk programs. Definitely no where near 5-15 times as many as a standard market. Therefore, the sureties writing these programs are making out quite well for themselves. The few bonding companies have a monopoly on higher risk applicants, as there few sureties willing to take the risk of new surety guidelines, especially after the fall of the soft market.

Sureties writing higher risk contract bonds are even more rare. Bond approvals for five year contracts are unheard of these days, for most. Fortunately, there are some contract bonding companies willing to break the mold of traditional suretyship and take larger risks than the ridiculous expectation of a 0% loss. Similar to the high risk commercial bonds, higher risk contracts (i.e long contracts) will see increased rates. Surprisingly, the sureties willing to write the higher risk contract bonds do not have losses greater than their peers. The average loss ratio of our out of the box thinking contract bonding companies is 14.35%, lower than many conservative sureties. Once again, they have a monopoly on the market, as very few are willing to write these “hazardous” bonds.

Often, our agency is contacted by surety underwriters that want our business. They are well aware that we are a high volume agency that has a diverse range of accounts and they want a piece of the pie. We rarely get appointed with new sureties, as most offer the same as their competition. If they are going to try to increase their book of business they will have to think outside of conventional underwriting and rate guidelines. Why would we set our clients up with a surety that is the same as every other market out there? What they need to do is find market segments that are not overwhelmed with other sureties offering identical programs. Contact us if you are an open minded underwriter looking to expand your book of business. We have set up numerous programs that have been successful for quite some time. The programs are successful because unlike the higher risk bonds approved in the soft market of the past, they are approved with higher premium rates, which offset the cost of claims.

It is time that the surety industry wakes up and realizes that a 0% loss is not obtainable. Stop underwriting in the same fashion simply because it is the way business has been done for years. Forward thinking sureties are capitalizing an entire market segment; it is time the high risk segments become diverse with more bonding companies.

It would surprise you to know how many homes have all the latest in technological gadgetry, yet have failed to insure the contents of their home against the event of either a burglary or damage. If you want to protect your personal property, you need to be insuring your personal property with a home contents insurance.

What To Insure

You can arrange to insure any (or all) of the contents of your home under a home contents insurance policy. Nevertheless, if you have any personal belongings in your home over a certain value, then you should be discussing these with your home contents insurance provider as in most cases property over a certain value needs to be declared independently (and, in certain cases, such as with expensive diamond engagement rings, they may need to be insured independently).

Itemise Your Possessions

Once you have decided that you want to purchase home contents insurance you need to take an inventory of your home, itemising all of the possessions in the home. A really good tip here is not to move all of your possession into one room and then itemise them, but to go from room to room doing this. This way, your inventory will be broken-down into rooms, should damage or theft occur only to a part of the home. Better yet, you should try to walk through your home with a video camera videoing all of the possessions in that room. You can then keep a copy of the video with the inventory. However, if you do not have a video camera, still-camera photographs of your possessions is better than taking no photographic evidence at all.

How To Value Your Possessions

It is vital that you remember that home contents insurance is insurance against the replacement value of the item that was lost, stolen or damaged. It does not take into consideration any nostalgic value. Therefore, if you have expensive personal property in your home, you should arrange to have these independently valued preferably by an insurance approved valuer and a copy of the valuation receipt should be kept with the insurance policy. The value of the other items in your home can either be assessed by the price it cost you to purchase them; or, better, by taking a trip down to the local shops and seeing how much each of the items would cost you to buy as this is the amount youll be paid if the item is lost/damaged.

How To Arrange The Home Contents Insurance

Once you have valued and itemised the possessions you want to insure you can then log onto the internet and get some online home contents insurance quotes based on the value and possessions you want to have insured under the insurance policy.

What Will The Insurance Premium Cover

Ordinarily the insurance policy will cover you in the event that the possession insured is lost, stolen or damaged. Damage in this case can be the cause of a natural event, such as a bad storm or flooding, or a because of a boiler bursting. You should also read your policy carefully, as some home contents insurance policies cover items which are lost outside of the home for example, if you are transporting them in the car.

Gambling in an online casino can require more and better skills than when you are playing in a land based casino. This is why it is very important to pick the online casinos that are best for you. Here I have written some helpful ideas on how to find the online casino that is right for you.

Gambling in an online casino is not exactly the same as playing in a regular casino. Yes the rules are the same but the way you play may be slightly different.

One of the major differences between gambling in an online casino and a regular land based casino is the fact that you cant look into the eyes of another player. Lets say you are playing poker and you suspect the other player may be bluffing you can look at them to try to get a read on them to see if they have a tell, but in an online casino you have to be sharper then that.

In an online casino or online poker room you need to be good enough to know from the way the other players at the table are playing if they are bluffing or not, as opposed to at a regular casino or poker room where you can look into their eyes and try to get a read on them.

Other than poker most of the games are almost exactly the same as in a land based casino. If you are new to gambling online you may want to check out some online casino review sites. These sites not only offer reviews from independent reviewers, but you can also find reviews from regular everyday players like yourself and read about their experience both good and bad and make up your own mind.

To do this I recommend going to yahoo.com and type in casinos into the search engine, and if you check out the top 5 or 6 sites I guarantee you will find all the information on what sites are reliable and which ones are a rip off. Some of the sites even offer their readers weekly gambling Horoscopes, and recipes for foods perfect for the next time you invite the guys over for poker night.

Before spending any money in any of the online casinos, open a free account and try the games out for free, see if you enjoy the software and the different options. Make a list of things you liked and things you did not like and find the site that offers you more of what you want and less of what you do not want.

Make sure to read all of the rules for each online casino. They will tempt you by offering you bonuses just for signing up, but make sure you read and understand the rules for accepting the money before you accept it or spend any of the allegedly “free” money.

Many of the online casinos will offer you a tutorial explaining how to use the features and to play each game and I highly recommend that you use it, because if you make a mistake the online casinos will not give you a refund.

Other than this the only advice I can give is that the more you play the better you will get, and will therefore be able to win more money.

Retirement Interest Calculator

A mortgage is referred to the house loan, and it will be placed as the security with the lender. The house will also be seized by the lender if the borrower does not pay a certain number of monthly installments. Most of the time mortgage is related to real estate, but there are also other securities that are used. This loan is called harmless as there will be good options for interest rates.

The term for repayment is also very long, so there will be the chance for the borrower to plan his monthly finances, and also take a plan accordingly. Most of the time of course, the mortgage loan value will be calculated based upon the amount that the borrower cannot pay. Normally he is asked to pay a down payment on the property that he is planning to purchase.

The down payment for the mortgage will be calculated according to the value of the property. The amount or percentage to be paid will also be calculated differently from company to company. This method is popular in the United States, as the home ownership is large and many people wish to rather own homes than rent it out.

The creditor will legally hold the rights to the property as he has funded the purchase of the house. Most of the time, these loans are given out by banks and smaller financial institutions. They are simply known as mortgagee or lender. The debtor is the person who has signed for the loan and who is obligated to pay back the borrower for the amount he has taken.

As there are several banks and other institutions who lend money for the property mortgage, there will be various interest rates and the financial adviser will be sought for help to choose the right company. There will also be a legal adviser present who will look at the agreements to be signed, and the creditor as well as debtor may have one.

The unregistered land ownership will be transferred to the bank, and the bank will hold complete rights to the property. The debtor of course will sign part of it, as he has made a down payment towards buying the property. The mortgage deed will be drawn by the banker as he is the one to lend the money.

With a mortgage there will also be the fees for the disbursement charges as well as other legal and registration charges. When the debtor signs all the agreements, he has to look carefully at the value of the property, and also how much interest the bank is charging him. He has to ensure that he is able to repay the monthly installments accordingly.

There could also be the option of the mortgage by legal charge, where the debtor will hold rights to the property, but the creditor will still be able to sell it or repossess it if the loan amount is not repaid. A public register will record these details so that the borrower is safe.

Financial Planning For Retirement

The business arena is all about venture, is it not?

Indeed, there is only a thin line which separates success and failure. For businesses, small or big, somebody reliable must advise on complex things. These things include a whole lot of opinions on taxes, method of financing and effective planning. I am referring to a credible ACCOUNTANT.

Does it mean that an erroneous choice of an accountant will destroy a business? Well, probably not damage everything right off the bat but kill it softly. Can one afford that to let it happen? We presume everybodys answer is no. So, before you feel like biting your elbow due to regrets, here are some tips on how to hire the right accountant:

He must be somebody who can get involved in the planning stage of your business and who can squeeze out advice on your choice of business. Moreover, he must know how to set up the right bookkeeping systems and negotiating leases. When the business becomes operational, he must prepare yearly information returns, work on reviews every quarter and the best part he must do good at is giving advice. As what Mike Jeffries, accountant of Bedard, Kurowicki, & Co. mentioned, “The role of the accountant transformed into somebody who has to review information, more of an adviser.”

As what surveys reflect, the accountant is the most trusted adviser of any business. This means that his point of view when it comes to problems on internal control, cash flow, inventory pricing and the like really matter. Therefore, a good accountant can be responsible enough. He has to take the role of a general business consultant.

In choosing the right accountant, one factor to be considered is that he must be a great source of referrals. An accountant has a community of professionals around him. He must know how to make good use of them.

An accountant who can set up the business with you is a good choice. (http://www.bytesolutions.com/ )

He must be someone with adequate experience. In whatever field, hiring someone with the experience is making the best decision. If he already knows if what the ins and outs of the business are, he is a better option.

“Someone whos going to answer your questions, someone who listens to you and your needs, someone who is reliable.” This description of a good accountant. Make sure that you are going to choose someone you are comfortable with. According to Jeffrey Levy of Leads for Life Inc., a personal relationship is important.

Is a CPA better than those who are not? CPAs as we all know have passed exams and are well- equipped with the qualifications. However, t is not a general assurance that those who are not must not be considered.

With this tips, rest assured, you will see the difference between a number wizard and a certified good accountant.

Financial Planning Retirement

A home equity loan is based on the equity of the home, and will also be calculated accordingly by the lending institutions to the borrowers. There are various types of home equity loans, and they must be chosen according to the capability of the debtor to repay the bank.
