Ac Credit Card Warning

Just ask yourself: is the credit card working for you or are you working for your credit card? Most people’s answer to this question will depend on how they use their “plastic pal” as credit cards are sometimes known. As many people with burned fingers will tell you, they didn’t realize that things had got so bad until very late, because most credit card companies try so hard to make themselves sound like a charity. Well, take it from me, they aren’t.

But this is not an anti credit card campaign. They have their plus points – in the USA, for example, if you want to hire a vehicle, you have got to have a (major) credit card. But, consider this scenario:

You get an offer in the post that sounds good, perhaps it’s a new television or fridge. But it costs $2,000. You have a credit card with a $5,000 limit, so you go out and purchase the product right away. Often, this is how your repayment schedule will work out. Most credit cards charge a minimum percentage of the total balance (typically 2 percent) per month. Assuming the interest rate is 18 percent and you choose to repay the minimum amount of $40, $30 of that will go towards interest and only $10 will come off the $2,000!

Electric Bug Killer

The hand held bug killer is the best way of clearing the area around you of insects, especially the flying ones such as mosquitoes. The indoor bug killer vaporizes any insect from a mosquito to a gnat instantly on contact with a nice, loud, electrical ‘crack’!

However, this is not to say that the indoor insect zapper cannot be used outdoors, as long as it is not raining. It should be treated like any other high voltage electrical equipment. Keep the indoor insect killer dry and definitely do not use it while you are standing in water!

Models do vary greatly, but there are really only two kinds of electric insect zapper: the battery operated bug killer and the rechargeable electric bug zapper. Both models are equally effective at zapping bugs and employ the same methods.

The electric insect zapper looks like a ‘kids’ tennis racquet, but with three layers of ‘strings’, which are in fact wires. The central network of wires becomes live at the push of a button while the other two networks, one on either side, are earths.

The Treatment Of Headaches

When we are suffering from a headache we generally think of ways to stop the pain. However, as there are different types of headaches, sometimes the treatments may work for only a few headache types. There are two different ways of stopping the pain caused by headaches. These types of headache treatment are called prophylactical and abortive headache treatment.

The prophylactic type of treatment has to be taken everyday in order to reduce the frequency of and to control the severity of the headache. Abortive headache treatment is begun only when the headache starts.

You must understand that your doctor will not prescribe any prophylactic headache treatment unless you are suffering from several, frequent headache attacks per month. When you take the prophylactic medication you will be monitored for side effects like weight gain, water retention, lethargy, memory impairment and hallucinations.

The treatment of headaches with prophylactic medicine begins with a low dose. The dosage is then increased regularly. You will also be checked every month or so to find out if the treatment is taking effect. Your doctor will also make sure that you are not on any other types of medication or vitamin supplements during this early phase of your headache treatment.

Consolidating Student Loans

There are a few ways for students to find relief from debt – for example by the consolidation of student loans. If you are in over your head in student loans, you should be advised that there are a few options for the consolidation of student loans.

However, to get started you must determine your loan amount and types of loans you owe. Next, you should contact the lenders or college financial agents and request a loan drop. If you are in debt over your head, then this is a better solution than the consolidation of your student loans.

But, if that doesn’t work and you fail to seek the consolidation of your student loans, then you are at risk of lawsuits, the loss of tax refunds or credits and the possibly of wage garnishes. Again, whether or not you can request for a cancellation of the student loans will be depend on the type of student loans you took out, when and for how much they were issued.

Are Fasting And Fitness Compatible?

A lot of people do not understand their bodies. That much is obvious because they think that fasting will help them become fitter. They feel convinced that their bodies will burn off their excess fat and that they will lose weight as a result. They also appear to think that they will automatically end up with more muscle, just in the right places too. Some take up fasting for fitness because they believe that it will rid them of the toxins in their bodies.

Another belief that these fasters have is that they are will be able to flush out all of the toxins in their bodies by drinking plenty of water at the same time as not eating food. Even if this is true, it would be a long procedure that would mean that you would have to fast for at least five to seven days though in order to conclude the detox process, although it is still not clear scientifically whether fasting is the right approach for those that desire fitness.
