Want To Be Approved For Your Next Loan? Consider This Simple And Best Way To Improve Your Credit Score

By Tim H Lambert

Months before you begin to look for a new car or home, it is necessary to take steps to be approved for your credit loan. The first useful step is by making a list of all of your existing loans and credit cards, including account numbers, company names and monthly payment amounts. This step will assist you in analyzing the information on your credit report. If possible, include also all your closed loans and credit accounts.

Have a check up in your finances before meeting with good mortgage lender for a full credit approval. While you are in the process of being approved, your own credit report will be requested. The credit score typically includes all the data from all three credit bureau – Equifax, Experian, and Trans Union. The credit report shows the three credit scores from each credit bureau. The type of loan as well as its interest rate available for you is affected by your credit score. If you can’t understand what’s in your credit report, ask for the assistance of a mortgage professional and they will present proposals on the best way to improve your score. Once you have seen your credit report, make some correction if there are mistakes because credit bureaus often commit mistakes in the data. Remember that everything is done by compute so it is possible that you have some concerns on your credit report that must be corrected or disputed. Checking of your credit file is free of charge so take advantage of it.

After checking the credit report, you must face the real credit issues. In order for you to successfully address the real issue, you need the advice especially on the time it will take for all the issues will stay on your report as well as re-building your credit merit. It is ideal to talk to a financial advisor or personal counselor to working out of debt and ultimately trying to establish enhanced habits.

Now that you have altered your credit report for your own good, you must now understand how a credit score helps you in borrowing money. Below is the range of credit scores:

-Less than 620-Poor

-620-680 -Average

-680-720 – Good

-720 – 800 – Excellent

-800-850 – not often seen

Having known the range of credit score, try to aim for good to excellent because being in the average category will require you to add more money in order to be approved in the loan that you want

You should know the rules that govern the credit scoring. The factors that affect credit scoring are the following:

* The payment history comprises 35% of your credit score. You must pay all your bills on time to have a good credit score.

* The connection involving your available credits against how much you have is about 30% of your credit score. If you are over 50% drawn against your available credit, this will count against you.

* Your payment history accounts to 15% of the credit score. A loan that is more seasoned can give you higher score.

* If you made inquiries on your credit report accounts to 10% of your credit score so you should make any inquiries to a minimum.

* Lastly, the type of credit you used accounts for 10% of your credit score.

Kyrgyzstan: Ethnic unrest continues, government asks Russia for help

Saturday, June 12, 2010

A second day of ethnic clashes in southern Kyrgyzstan between Kyrgyzs and Uzbeks has killed at least 62 people and wounded over 800 more, reports say, as violence there entered its second day. The interim Kyrgyz president, Roza Otunbayeva, meanwhile, appealed to the Russian government to send in troops to try and restore order.

The clashes are occurring primarily in the southern city of Osh. Witnesses say the chaos and violence has increased, and central authority collapsed, with gunfire audible throughout the city. The violence started on Thursday night, when ethnic Kyrgyz and Uzbeks started street brawls that soon escalated into battles; riots and looting started, cars were damaged, and buildings set alight by both sides.

In a nationally televised speech, Otunbayeva commented: “I have signed a letter asking Dmitry Medvedev for third-party forces to be sent to the Kyrgyz Republic. Since yesterday the situation has got out of control. We need outside military forces to halt the situation. For this reason we have appealed to Russia for help.”

Russian officials say the Kyrgyz leader had talks with Russian prime minister Vladimir Putin by telephone yesterday night.

Thousands of Uzbeks, meanwhile, have crowded the border between Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan in an effort to flee the ongoing conflict; one child was trampled to death during the escape. According to a reporter for the BBC, people are being let through the border one by one by security guards.

By the latest official death tolls, at least 62 people have been killed, although the interim government believes that there could be up to 200 dead. Researcher for Human Rights Watch Andrea Berg cautioned that the death toll could jump once the government enters Uzbek neighbourhoods; under Uzbek tradition, the dead are buried within one day.

“We are moving corpses out of the city streets; however, there are regions that the authorities do not control, it is not known what is going on there. Additionaly, as a result of fires in the city, entire residential apartments burnt down, so there could be more dead people there as well,” said a spokesman for the Russian ministry of health (Minzdrav).

Unrest also reached the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek; a medical official told the Agence France-Presse news service that 27 people were hospitalised, some of which are in critical condition.

Viktor Schreckengost dies at 101

Sunday, January 27, 2008

Viktor Schreckengost, the father of industrial design and creator of the Jazz Bowl, an iconic piece of Jazz Age art designed for Eleanor Roosevelt during his association with Cowan Pottery died yesterday. He was 101.

Schreckengost was born on June 26, 1906 in Sebring, Ohio, United States.

Schreckengost’s peers included the far more famous designers Raymond Loewy and Norman Bel Geddes.

In 2000, the Cleveland Museum of Art curated the first ever retrospective of Schreckengost’s work. Stunning in scope, the exhibition included sculpture, pottery, dinnerware, drawings, and paintings.

Disposal of fracking wastewater poses potential environmental problems

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

A recent study by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) shows that the oil and gas industry are creating earthquakes. New information from the Midwest region of the United States points out that these man-made earthquakes are happening more frequently than expected. While more frequent earthquakes are less of a problem for regions like the Midwest, a geology professor from the University of Southern Indiana, Dr. Paul K. Doss, believes the disposal of wastewater from the hydraulic fracturing (or “fracking”) process used in extracting oil and gas has the possibility to pose potential problems for groundwater.

“We are taking this fluid that has a whole host of chemicals in it that are useful for fracking and putting it back into the Earth,” Doss said. “From a purely seismic perspective these are not big earthquakes that are going to cause damage or initiate, as far as we know, any larger kinds of earthquakes activity for Midwest. [The issue] is a water quality issue in terms of the ground water resources that we use.”

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a technique used by the oil and gas industries which inject highly pressurized water down into the Earth’s crust to break rock and extract natural gas. Most of the fluids used for fracking are proprietary, so information about what chemicals are used in the various fluids are unknown to the public and to create a competitive edge.

Last Monday four researchers from the University of New Brunswick released an editorial that sheds light on the potential risks that the current wastewater disposal system could have on the province’s water resources. The researchers share the concern that Dr. Doss has and have come out to say that they believe fracking should be stopped in the province until there is an environ­mentally safe way to dispose the waste wastewater.

“If groundwater becomes contamin­ated, it takes years to decades to try to clean up an aquifer system,” University of New Brunswick professor Tom Al said.

While the USGS group which conducted the study says it is unclear how the earthquake rates may be related to oil and gas production, they’ve made the correlation between the disposal of wastewater used in fracking and the recent upsurge in earthquakes. Because of the recent information surfacing that shows this connection between the disposal process and earthquakes, individual states in the United States are now passing laws regarding disposal wells.

The problem is that we have never, as a human society, engineered a hole to go four miles down in the Earth’s crust that we have complete confidence that it won’t leak.

“The problem is that we have never, as a human society, engineered a hole to go four miles down in the Earth’s crust that we have complete confidence that it won’t leak,” Doss said. “A perfect case-in-point is the Gulf of Mexico oil spill in 2010, that oil was being drilled at 18,000 feet but leaked at the surface. And that’s the concern because there’s no assurance that some of these unknown chemical cocktails won’t escape before it gets down to where they are trying to get rid of them.”

It was said in the study released by the New Brunswick University professors that if fracking wastewater would contaminate groundwater, that current conventional water treatment would not be sufficient enough to remove the high concentration of chemicals used in fracking. The researchers did find that the wastewater could be recycled, can also be disposed of at proper sites or even pumped further underground into saline aquifers.

The New Brunswick professors have come to the conclusion that current fracking methods used by companies, which use the water, should be replaced with carbon diox­ide or liquefied propane gas.

“You eliminate all the water-related issues that we’re raising, and that peo­ple have raised in general across North America,” Al said.

In New Brunswick liquefied propane gas has been used successfully in fracking some wells, but according to water specialist with the province’s Natural Resources De­partment Annie Daigle, it may not be the go-to solution for New Brunswick due its geological makeup.

“It has been used successfully by Corridor Resources here in New Bruns­wick for lower volume hydraulic frac­turing operations, but it is still a fairly new technology,” Daigle said.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is working with U.S. states to come up with guidelines to manage seismic risks due to wastewater. Under the Safe Drinking Water Act, the EPA is the organization that also deals with the policies for wells.

Oil wells, which are under regulation, pump out salt water known as brine, and after brine is pumped out of the ground it’s disposed of by being pumped back into the ground. The difference between pumping brine and the high pressurized fracking fluid back in the ground is the volume that it is disposed of.

“Brine has never caused this kind of earthquake activity,” Doss said. “[The whole oil and gas industry] has developed around the removal of natural gas by fracking techniques and has outpaced regulatory development. The regulation is tied to the ‘the run-of-the-mill’ disposal of waste, in other words the rush to produce this gas has occurred before regulatory agencies have had the opportunity to respond.”

According to the USGS study, the increase in injecting wastewater into the ground may explain the sixfold increase of earthquakes in the central part of the United States from 2000 – 2011. USGS researchers also found that in decades prior to 2000 seismic events that happened in the midsection of the U.S. averaged 21 annually, in 2009 it spiked to 50 and in 2011 seismic events hit 134.

“The incredible volumes and intense disposal of fracking fluids in concentrated areas is what’s new,” Doss said. “There is not a body of regulation in place to manage the how these fluids are disposed of.”

The study by the USGS was presented at the annual meeting of the Seismological Society of America on April 18, 2012.

U.S. Textile Industry To Extend The Quota Limit For The Final Sprint

By Himfr Paul

From 43 countries textile manufacturers began to extend the quota deadline for the final sprint to do. Tuesday, they and dozens of countries, industry leaders convened in Brussels on a three-day conference, including Bangladesh and Turkey’s textile sector leadership, goal is to extend the quota system to launch a campaign deadline.

According to the American Textile Manufacturers Association, said that so far, from 43 countries of the 81 trade union has been in Turkey’s so-called “Istanbul Declaration” signed the. Last week, the U.S. textile industry successfully persuaded 130 members, including Democratic presidential candidate Johnke force, wrote to President Bush, asking him to urge the WTO to convene an emergency meeting to reconsider the termination of the quota period.

The lawmakers asked the U.S. government to put pressure on the WTO, the textile and apparel quota deadline extended until the end of the end of 2007, they said, otherwise, India and China’s exports would flood the world market, resulting in about 30 million workers unemployed. So far, Washington is still opposed to extending the quota period. U.S. Trade Representative’s office spokesman said the United States is prepared to comply with its commitments to the international community. However, this problem may be in the November presidential election to become a hot spot.

Start from the 60’s textile import quotas will end with the textile and apparel agreement to cancel, and now this problem is the WTO one of the fiercest fighting. As the quota system, import quotas set each year, a number of less developed countries in Asia and Latin America’s textile products have a certain degree of market protection. But in 1994, the WTO textile and clothing agreement to make decisions, using 10 years to phase out all quota.

In fact, India has some WTO members had rejected the trade protectionism. Permanent Representative of India WTO said in a letter, “Obviously, most of the quotas will expire on the last day the agreement was canceled. This point, the process of phasing out of quotas and the agreement runs counter to expected results.” The letter said The European Union in 1994, more than 303 kinds of quota categories, to date only 91 cancellations. There are 212 kinds of rest, or 70%, still in use quotas. Similarly, in Canada a total of 368 kinds of quota categories, canceled only 76, the remaining 292, or 79%, still in use quotas.

Recently, 80 members of the International Textile and Apparel Council, Mr Chandrasekhar has been held in New Delhi in the 39th annual meeting of industry warned that the WTO, “Trade protectionism will find or invent other ways to stop the abolition of quotas.”

Less than 3% of total global trade of textile industry in India directly employs 35 million workers, the contribution of GDP to 4%, accounting for 25% of India’s export earnings. Recognizing that the textile industry in the next 5 years a bright future, the Government of India for the development of textile and apparel goal is to export in 2010 reached 50 billion U.S. dollars every year, Indian textile and garment exports to the scale of the current 120 million.

Global IT sector Mckingsey recent study is expected that by 2008 the global textile and apparel production will reach 248 billion U.S. dollars. China, India and Pakistan will become a “clear winner.”

Is Day Trading Profitable?

To answer this question, is day trading profitable ? I will first establish a few points as the foundation. Whether day trading is profitable depends on 4 areas. Only when we are have mastered these 4 areas, then day trading can be very profitable.

These 4 areas are

1 Start up capital

You need a certain level of start up capital to make money from day trading. Depending on the instrument that you are trading, the margin required may be from 2% for forex, to 20% for commodities. Due to the leverage nature of trading, you do not need to put up the full value of the contract.

For starters, even for a small trading account, you would still need to fund about $10,000.

2. Technique and skill

Another important factor that will determine whether you are profitable with day trading is your level of skills in the techniques being applied. There are many techniques that day traders use to determine entry points, take profit and stop loss levels.

This ranges from reversion to the mean strategy to moving averages spring strategy and many others more. Moreover, different strategies makes use of a range of technical indicators which you would have to master.

We make money from day trading primarily by exploiting 2 concepts. One is the idea of trading in the trend whilst the other is trend reversals. All of the strategies and technical indicators is to help to decide on playing on either one or the other.

You can find out more about the different strategiesHere

3. Experience

Another crucial factor that determines how profitable day trading can be is the experience of the trader. A day trader has to be nimble to be profitable. The mantra is to get in fast, get out faster. This takes experience to exploit trend and short term trend reversals within the longer term trend. This is especially true during times of great volatility surrounding major events and announcements.

Day traders can trade anywhere from 1-2 minutes charts, up to 30 minutes chart. As the time duration is short, the price movement tends to be smaller in magnitude and therefore the size of your position relative to your account capital is crucial in determining your profitability and risk management. All these take experience

4. Control of emotions and mental strength

One of the most important factors to determine whether you can make good profits from day trading has more to do with your emotions and mental strength rather than anything else.

Day traders cannot let their emotions get the better of them or they will lose a lot of money. To profit from day trading, traders have to keep their emotions in check. When we got it wrong and our position is taken out by the stop loss, we have to continue and set up new trades.

When we have mastered the techniques and strategies and based on our experience, we must be confident that our winning calls to outnumber our losing calls. Another way to ensure that our wins will be bigger than our losses is risk reward ratio that we set for each trade which is usually 1:2. This means that when we win, we win double our losing trades.

Mental strength is very important in that we must have the mental strength to stick to set up trades based on what is identified. Many times, we tend to end up having more losing trades when we lose this discipline, get overcome by emotions and set up trades that should never have been set up.

Is Day Trading Profitable ?

Once you have control of the 4 factors, day trading can be extremely profitable. For the same amount of startup capital, there can be many trading opportunities over the day. With such velocity, as long as we have a risk reward ratio of 1:2 and executes a higher number of winning trades over losing trades, the profit potential is huge

Large Texas hospital dismisses 75 employees

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

A recent media report indicates that 75 Parkland Hospital employees in Dallas, Texas were dismissed over the past three months. These actions follow closely behind a lengthy spell of government regulatory sanctions and failed inspections at both the state and federal levels. The hospital’s interim CEO did confirm for media sources that numerous employees had been “encouraged to leave” during the past few months.

The hospital hired a new chief nursing officer in January and has been reorganizing nursing services throughout the facility. In September, the hospital and federal regulators in Dallas entered into an agreement which requires the hospital to reach compliance by April 2013.

After discussing some personal experiences there, a long-time resident of Dallas, who has sought treatment at the hospital told Wikinews, “Frankly, I don’t have anything positive to say about Parkland [hospital].” Our source did not want to give his name.

Ukraine: media riddles around the phosphorous cloud

Saturday, July 21, 2007

The available information about the phosphorous cloud following the railway accident in the Ukraine last Monday is becoming more and more cryptic.

The political involvement of most media and other factors are causing contradictions among official sources that are making press work extremely hard. Moreover, no one is permitted to enter the accident location. The site of the accident was closed to visitors following the injury of three TV journalists who got too close.

France votes no in EU referendum

Sunday, May 29, 2005

In a result predicted by polls, a 54.87% majority of French voters voted non in Sunday’s European Constitution referendum. Of France’s 42 million eligible voters, over 70% turned out at the 55 thousand polling stations across the country, which were open from 8:00 to 20:00 on Sunday (except in Paris and Lyon where voting finished at 22:00, and French oversea possessions and other polling centers in the Americas, which voted on Saturday in order not to have them vote when the results are already known). A 70% turnout is very large compared to Spain 42%.

The result comes as no surprise to European political commentators as opinion polls had consistently suggested that the “No” camp was on course for a strong victory. Indeed, the last opinion poll before the actual referendum suggested a 56% win for the “No” camp.

The treaty was supported by all 3 major political parties (center-left PS, center-right UMP, center-right UDF), though a significant minority of the PS, and some in the UMP, chose to oppose it.It was opposed by the French Communist Party, as well as Trotskyite movements such as the Revolutionary Communist League, other far-left movements such as the Party of the Workers, parts of the Socialist party, parts of The Greens some members of UMP, and the nationalist National Front.

According to polls, the vast majority of blue collar workers, farmers and other categories threatened by globalization and international concurrence voted against the treaty. The urban, better educated or richer population voted in favor.

Some supporters of the “No” camp have argued that the mainstream media was biased in favor of the “yes” cause, and this was supported by some analyses of times awarded by television to both camps. However, the “no” camp also waged an aggressive campaign, with the walls of major cities being plastered with posters linking the EU Constitution and the European Union to all kind of social ills, such as high unemployment.
