Avail Short Term Cash Advances With Limited Legal Formalities

The unpredictable market condition has made it almost necessary for people to resort to various kinds of loans. However, earlier availing debts was very difficult because of their long formalities and complex terms and conditions. In contrast to this, a number of easy finance possibilities have cropped up to help the people to meet their immediate emergency monetary needs. In this context, the short term cash advances caters the needs of the middle class people and allow them to meet their immediate expenses. What is most impressive about these finances is the fact that they are easily available and can be availed without long formalities or complex terms and conditions.

Today such loans have become very common because of the rise in uncertainty in life. A number of middle class as well as upper middle class people have started depending on such debts to prepare themselves for the unforeseen circumstances. Earlier, people had this misconception that resorting to bank borrowings could often turned out to be risky venture due to the pressure of repayments. But with the introduction of such short term cash advances, one can easily avail necessary finances for the emergency situations like medical needs, educational needs, paying off outstanding debts and many more.

One of the most striking feature of these finances is that they are unsecured in nature and do not require any pledge of security in the form of car, house or other property. This has actually proved very advantageous for the middle class people, who can now avail such debts in spite of not having enough property to be pledged as security. Hence, such financial sources have become more exposed to the people in UK.

Another plus point of these advances lies in the fact that these borrowings can be availed even by those who have low credit history. This means that even if you have defaulted payments for a couple of times in the past, then also you can avail finances from banks as and when required. Now, since these short term loans do not require any security pledging, therefore, they takes less processing time. These debts are getting very popular, as they offer easy repayment schemes which do not affect the savings of the people and reduce the pressure from the borrowers. However, in spite of having favourable terms and conditions these borrowings also involve certain criteria to be fulfilled by the users.

First of all, anyone who wishes to avail such finances must be a citizen of UK and must be minimum 18 years of age. Other than this, the borrowers must have a valid bank account so that the bank can transfer the loan amount directly to their account. The borrowers should also be working for at least a period of 6 months and should earn a handsome salary in order to avail such debts.

These short term cash advances with its favourable terms and conditions have come as saviours for those who cannot afford to avail long term loans because of the legal formalities and security pledging. Therefore, these finances have become highly popular among all class of people, especially the middle class, due to their liberal terms and conditions.

Bathroom Remodeling Idea Makes Bathroom Repairs Easier

Bathroom repair is easier with access panels

Soon after I had remodeled my small bathroom it developed a water leak. The first thing I knew about it was a puddle on the floor of the room below. A water pipe was leaking and it was buried in one of the bathroom walls which not only made it difficult to find out where the leak was but a lot of ceramic tiles had to be destroyed to get at it.

When I asked my bathroom contractors why they didn’t make it easier to get at the new pipe work they said that it would have made my quotation too expensive so they just buried the pipes and hoped that they don’t give any trouble. It was just my luck then that my bathroom was the one where they made lousy joints. The bathroom repair turned out to be far more costly than it would have been to make all the pipes accessible in the first place and I wish now that I’d had the foresight to put that in the specifications.

Where to put access panels

The obvious solution to the bathroom repair problem is to provide access panels for all of the pipe work joints and as much of the pipe length as possible. When you specify what you want in your bathroom remodel make sure that you will be able to get at every joint easily.

Where the water pipes are installed in a separating wall it’s often convenient to provide access on the other side of the wall rather than inside the bathroom where the ceramic tiles are. You may even be able to turn the access into a small cupboard, which would give you an added benefit. Opening the cupboard doors would provide simple access to the water pipes.

Pipe work under bathtub and under floor can be made accessible by removable panels. Make sure that the floor covering allows for this and a suitable sealer is used to fill any gaps when the access is closed.

If the access panel has to go on the bathroom side of the wall then special attention to waterproofing will be required.

How to make access panels in ceramic tiles

To accommodate a radiator in my bathroom remodel the contractors built a false wall to hide the pipe work. This wall was then set with ceramic tiles and the radiator mounted in front of the tiles. This pipe work has not leaked but I do wonder what I would do if it ever did.

Tiling a small part of the false wall separately on a removable section could have provided an access panel. This would then be screwed firmly to the main part of the wall and the edges sealed with a silicon-sealing compound. The screws would pass through the tiles so silicon sealer would be used to seal the screw heads and holes in the tiles. When the need arose the sealer could be stripped away and the panel unscrewed. Resealing when the problem was fixed would be just as easy.

Raincoats For the Women of Today

Raincoats for women come in many shapes and styles and have been around for a very long time.

Often referred to as a mackintosh, the ‘mack’ has been in existence since the early 1820’s, and was invented by Charles Macintosh.

The mackintosh was a waterproof garment made from rubberized material, similar to the waxed jacket we often see worn by the men and women today.

Originally a practical garment to keep the wearer dry, this outerwear is now much more of a fashion statement. All top designers will include such an item in their collection.

The traditional design has been transformed to suit the needs of the modern woman, which has led to a variety of lengths. You’ll just as easily find a short anorak style rain jacket, as a full length raincoat.

Old heavy style fabrics have been replaced by breathable lightweight materials, which allow them to be packed up neatly into a small bag. Some models also have a hood which may be detachable.

The garment not only come in the single breasted, but also the double breasted, and zipped fastening design. This makes them more suitable to a wider range of customers as body shape, age, and taste, are all catered for.

For the winter you can choose a garment with a faux fur lining, which not only keep you dry but keep you very warm and snug too.

From the ever practical black or beige version to the fluorescent pink worn with matching wellington boots, raincoats for women are available to suit everyone.

10 Shopping Tips – Fashionable Finds Are Possible For Under $25!

When it comes to shopping sometimes the $20 sandals flatter you more than the $400 designer sandals. Style is not in the price, but in your approach. You can get more for less if you are savvy about your shopping. Fashionable finds are possible for under $25. How do you do it? Here are 10 Tips to think about when you’re out on a shopping expedition:

1. You Can Find Deals in Unexpected Places.

I got a purse for a steal at a Nine West shoe store in New Jersey. Not a shop I would normally think of to buy a purse. But I spotted it in the front window and fell in love. (Although maybe not as deeply as with my husband.) When I went into the store to ask a sales clerk about it, I thought this gorgeous tan satchel would be expensive. It looks like something that would be appropriate in Grace Kelly’s or Audrey Hepburn’s wardrobe closet. But now it’s in my closet.

2. Set Your Budget and Stick with It.

Yes, you’ve probably heard this before. However, forced to work within a box, you will come up with creative ideas. One year for Christmas, I set a working budget of $25 each for my nieces and nephew. Instead of getting them each one gift, I got them a number of small funky gifts and they each had 3 presents to open. It made opening gifts more exciting for them.

3. Read fashion magazines to get an idea of the trends.

Many clothing companies with budget-happy fashion lines will replicate the “look” or “feel” of pricey designer fashion. I read everything from New York magazine and the NY Times Fashion to Vogue, Elle and fashion catalogs to see what’s happening out in the fashion world. Go to your nearest public library and those fashion mags are FREE! If you learn what is cutting edge then believe me you will find cheaper versions of the trends. Or you will learn how to put an outfit together in your own expressive way.

4. You can find reasonably priced gifts at even the most expensive stores.

For example when I go online to Saks Fifth Avenue I can look under the gift category “Under $50.” Today for “$25 and under” I find: a Kate Spade notecard set, a hip style book on Dolce and Gabbana and Fresh waterlily soap—all would make lovely gifts. The price is so reasonable for the soap you could even include a little something else so that the recipient has another gift to open–always more fun. Go to a pricey chocolate shop. Then buy the smallest, but always tasteful box, sometimes under $15. Put it in a nice gift bag with the heavenly scented waterlily soap. Your gift card can read: “You deserve a little elegance in your life.” What friend wouldn’t be flattered.

5. Be open to new opportunities.

When I travel to new cities I like to explore new shops. I usually end up in the artsy section of town. To me that means galleries, museums, maybe a university–and fun shopping. I collect business cards of the stores I love and make notes or take pictures of what they have so I can call them and order from them later. If a town has a college or university it has plenty of stores with low prices to satisfy the students. And me too.

6. Know your own style.

Allow your self the luxury of an expensive item that you just can’t pass on. Especially if it defines “YOU.” Find deals for other purchases. I coveted a $99 sweater from J.Crew, but then I bought a purse for only $20 for a wedding. You can justify the expensive purchase. The sweater will last for years, amortizing into less money. If I wear the sweater often, cost-wise it pays for itself, while the wedding purse I might only use that one time.

7. Accessories are inexpensive ways to refashion the look of your outfit.

An $8.00 leopard print scarf I bought at H&M compliments my chartreuse cardigan, jeans and black boots. It’s a dressy-casual look that suits my style. And the scarf goes just as well with a knit purple dress and heels. A few strategically picked accessories means less outfits to buy.

8. Consider buying your purchases in the months they are traditionally on sale.

If you’re not in a rush to buy new towels then why not wait until January or August. Or if you thinking of painting your bedroom Robin Egg blue, that paint will be cheaper in April.

9. Sign up for email blasts from your favorite stores.

Stores will alert you to their sales and often give email subscribers exclusive discounts. You will learn about sales before the average customer. Then instead of spending a fortune on the skirt you admired earlier in the season you can scoop it up at a bargain.

10. Shop from your home and comparison shop online.

Yeah, why not. Shop in your pjs, my favorite way to shop. What do you think?

Fitness for Fun: Alternative Fitness Activities That Work

Are you one of those people who think that losing weight and keeping fit needs to be done at a rigorous pace and with a totally competitive mindset? Are you struggling with your weight loss program because of this kind of thinking? Are you almost drained of your last ounces of hope that you will ever get fit?

If you’re just beginning to start your fitness journey, or even if you’re already going but feeling a bit burnt out, then you might be approaching fitness all wrong. Getting fit shouldn’t make you feel like you’re in a boot camp. It should be enjoyable, and that’s where fitness for fun comes into the picture.

A lot of people who are overweight, or have health and fitness issues, may not be suitable for those in-gym workouts that are very rigorous and require a lot of correct technique. In fact the gym is just not an enjoyable experience for some people. Lifestyle, like working in an office setting where you don’t have the opportunity for a lot of physical activity, may have also taken over and quite frankly the hours that are being worked aren’t compatible with long sessions in the gym. The good news is that, there are alternative fitness options readily available.

First off, fitness for fun is an easy way to start getting back in to shape. Just because it’s fun it doesn’t mean that it isn’t working. Alternative fitness activities are far from the dumb bell curls that you normally do at the gym, think pillow fights, sports, rock climbing, hiking and the list goes on and on. I hear you say that doesn’t fitness have to be structured? In my opinion alternative fitness doesn’t have to be structured at all, the further from structured the better, as then it won’t feel like work at all!

How do you get back to that fitness for fun mentality? The best place to start is to just remember your younger days. Was there a sport that you enjoyed playing? Did you love to dance back then? Where you a cheerleader once in your life? Why not go back to those activities. Playing a sport that you once loved can be the furthest thing on your mind if your current fitness status is on the downside. However if you just get started you’ll be amazed at the support you will get and that in itself will help you go in the right direction and on the road again to regaining your fitness and health. You’ll also have that super benefit of burning those calories while you play. Remember just to be patient with yourself as you might struggle at first, but you’ll eventually start to feel that you’re getting better at it and before you know it you’ll be back to your old form and shape. It is never too late to take that first step. You could invite your old buddies to play with you as extra incentive and then it’s even more fun as it’s an excuse for a catch up as well, or you can join a local club if none of your buddies are still playing. There are many age clubs around that welcome players with our without experience. I know that for a fact as I’m now at 40 starting to seriously to consider taking up soccer in the local women’s team for the first time in my life to add some more fun into my fitness program.

It’s the same with dancing. When did you last dance? Most women nowadays prefer to join fitness clubs that offer dance classes as part of their fitness for fun programs. There’s a wide variety of dances that you can choose from like belly dancing, pole dancing, and Latin dancing just to name a few. Jazz and Ballroom dancing are also popular choices. This is a great way to learn a new skill and burn those calories at the same time.

Other alternative fitness activities would include playing Frisbee at the park, or learning how to swim, cycling, and even hauling logs with your bare hands. Why not? It’s a great way to keep you fit.

Anything can be fitness when we just stop thinking of fitness in the traditional sense of the word and open our eyes to all the possibilities around us. The best place to start? Just look through the eyes of a child, don’t take yourself seriously, laugh put a skip in your step and go from there.

High Cost of Healthcare Induced By Contradictory Goals of Providers and Payers

Healthcare has been the topic of debate for most of the last few years. From the boardroom to the water cooler, costs and quality of care are hot topics that impact everyone in this country. Young and old, Americans are feeling the squeeze and most are finding it difficult to come up with solutions. In the boardrooms of corporations both large and small, employers are struggling to cope with reality of rising premiums and declining benefits. Meanwhile employees are left with the prospect of going without health insurance. Currently it is estimated that 50 to 60 million adults in this country are walking the tightrope of living without health insurance. With such widespread reach for ripples created by this healthcare debacle, everyone is looking for answers. How can we afford coverage? Can we go without? What can be done to curb the costs and get this problem under control?

In the workplace, employers and employees often feel as if they’re on opposite sides of the fence. Employers feel as if their subordinates take no consideration of how difficult it can be to turn a profit while facing spiraling costs and a difficult economic environment. While large corporations may be able to ride out the storm, small businesses rarely have this luxury (especially at a time when credit is difficult to obtain). Most small businesses would close their doors if the balance sheet goes in the red for more than a few months or quarters. On the other hand, employees often adopt a near-sighted approach. How could they expect me to afford a premium increase? Should I just try to float without insurance for a while? These questions often lead to resentment on both sides of the coin, but are the employers or employees to take the blame and the higher cost?

Looking for answers to this growing problem is not easy. Where did the system go wrong? Why is it so expensive? Who’s to blame?

Many people blame healthcare providers for the rising costs of quality care. I can assure you this is not the case. Providers are facing a myriad of challenges and roadblocks. More so than ever, running a profitable medical practice is daunting task. Like any other business, a medical practice will close if it can not cover expenses and afford to pay salaries. Labor and leasing expenses are only the tip of the iceberg. Practitioners are forced to pay for equipment, insurance, hardware, software, licensing, and more. After establishing an office with all the appropriate resources, medical practices and hospitals must then attract patients in a very competitive marketplace.

Yet with all these costs and challenges in their way, healthcare providers are not complaining about patients or labor or costs! The largest problem facing healthcare providers is the insurance reimbursement process. Contradictory goals of payers and providers are resulting in inefficient and difficult payment systems. Insurance companies are more concerned with bottom-line profits and shareholders than they are about the care their members receive. How can we expect doctors and healthcare providers to keep their offices open if they can hardly get paid for the services they perform? Individuals believe that because they pay premiums, the insurance company will pay their doctor. Unfortunately, this is hardly the case. Health insurance claim denial rates can reach as high as 25% or more. Many providers have outstanding receivables measured in the millions of dollars. The insurance reimbursement process is so arduous that many medical practices never get paid and as a result close their doors forever.

Insurance companies use a wide variety of tactics to delay payments and deny claims. Payers employ hoards of representatives charged with the task of fielding calls and scrutinizing claims. Due to these tactics, insurance claims take anywhere from 30 days to more than 1 year to reach a completed status. In most cases claims are delayed and denied due to inconsequential, irrelevant errors. These errors result solely from the many difficult and senseless hoops that are placed in the way of the provider’s billing representatives. This extremely labor intensive process of collecting from insurance companies costs providers a great deal of time and money.

The only beneficiaries of this process are the shareholders of insurance companies. The delays in payments result in interest earned for the time period in which the claim was delayed. In many cases, providers never receive reimbursement for the services they perform. These claims must be written-off as a loss by providers while insurance companies see these cases as victories leaving more cash on their balance sheets. It appears that the primary goal of insurance companies may be to deny as many claims as possible; after all they answer to shareholders not providers or individual policy holders. This gross abuse of power by insurance companies may be the biggest problem we face in the healthcare sector.

The days when doctors sat on golf courses all day while making millions per year are over. Now they must battle insurance companies tooth and nail for every claim. If insurance companies paid doctors for the services they perform, perhaps we would see a reduction in costs related to providing care.

Surely there is no easy fix to this problem. We may find the answers by addressing the goals of big insurance companies. Providing oversight and incentives for paying healthcare providers for the services they perform would be a good start. If insurance companies focus on weeding out fraud rather than just delaying and denying payments, we could see an increase in efficiency and productivity in the healthcare sector that could be the start of controlling costs while maintaining a high standard of care. For the sake of all Americans, hopefully we find an answer soon!

Internet Marketing – New Trends in an Evolving Industry

Over the years internet marketing has been evolving from the
Efforts of the first marketers. Trends in the past have seen
marketers placed ads on talk forums, classified sites, in emails
and where ever they could find potential customers.

Some of these actions led to the introduction of changes from
Within the internet marketing community and from without.
An example of a change from within the community is the banning
Of ads on all forums and relegating them to only the signature file.

An example of a change from outside the community it the Can Spam
Law, which was introduced by the USA government to prevent the sending
Of unsolicited emails. This has done much to reduce the problems of
Spam; further to this from within the community we have seen programs
Which filter emails based on the words used in the headlines and in
The body of the emails.

What all these methods have done is fueled the evolution of internet
Marketing. Now marketers are using double opt-in techniques to
Comply with the Can Spam Law, they are using Tele-seminars to
Reach their target market. They are using SEO, search engine optimization,
To reach clients who are using the search engines to look for products
And services.

As we can see the evolution of internet marketing has been fueled from
Numerous sides, the government, the internet community, the internet
Service providers and the customers themselves.

Well my fellow entrepreneur the internet marketing industry is undergoing
another major evolutionary shift fueled this time by the customers.
October, 2006 was the apex of this change which has been building for awhile.

Over the months subscribers to the various mailing lists have been receiving
Emails on a daily basis promoting one new product launch or another. In
some cases some of us have received 2 or 3 emails promoting the same new
product launch. This activity reached it breaking point in October when there
were several product launches in the same day and we received up to a dozen
duplicate emails for the launch of new products.

The end result is that, there were a large number of un-subscribed requests to
The various mailing lists owners, many gurus saw their profits dropped
Dramatically from previous launches.

Currently we are sitting on the verge of a new era in marketing, an era in which
The consumers are helping to create what they consume. This new direction

Commercial Real Estate Agents – Let the Tenants Give You Some Local Leads and Contacts

When you work as a salesperson or agent in commercial property sales and leasing, you should always be on the hunt for opportunity and listings. Given that the commercial and retail property market revolves around businesses, the key to creating listing and enquiry ‘churn’ is in keeping in contact with business owners and tenants.

So you ask them questions. You need to know what they are looking for in premises when and if the time comes to move, the time that they will be getting to the end of their current lease, and what budget they may have in making a change.

It is also interesting to note that many tenants will tell you about the local area and the other nearby businesses. Given that they know their area so well, they are likely to read the change and pressures of the area better than you do.

This tenant contact process takes a systemised approach and requires meaningful content that the tenants value each time they talk to you. In most cases that will be something like the following:

1. A list of vacant premises in the local area that match the industry type for the tenant

2. Details of recent asking rentals and achieved rents from new leases, and also the rents from existing lease relationships (renewals)

3. Details of new property developments that will impact the supply and demand for business premises

4. Comparable property detail in the local area. This will include area, proximity, and improvements.

5. Movements of other major businesses or competitors coming and going through the precinct

6. Prices of property in the local area given the usage and improvements.

7. Levels of incentives being offered to new tenants in the current market

In giving a tenant this helpful information about the local area, the exchange of information you require and seek back from them is quite simple and takes the following form:

1. Who is moving in the local area?

2. What businesses are under pressures of space or relocation?

3. What or who is the landlord for the property and how can they be contacted?

4. When will you need to look for the alternatives of relocation?

5. When will your lease come up for review?

6. What are the neighbouring tenants like and who runs the business?

Asking these questions will give you so much information to build your ongoing prospecting and cold calling model around. Making the fullest use of the local information that abounds is just so simple if you ask the questions and make it part of your meetings and connections with clients or prospects. Every business person knows someone that occupies or owns a commercial property; get the names and build on the facts.
