How to Get the Lowest Rate on Your Hotel Room

Continue Reading Below

“The traveler who can do the most research wins,” says Brooke Ferencsik, director of communications at TripAdvisor.

For many trips, the lodging accommodations tend to be a major budget eater, and finding the best hotel price depends on the destination, season and hotel availability.

Even though the experts say the best time to book your flight for domestic travel is 21 to 35 days before you depart, if you’re comfortable with a hotel rate, no matter how far out you are from your travel dates, book it, recommends Maria Katime, spokesperson for KAYAK. “Hotel rates are not as volatile as airfare.”

To help reduce hotel costs to make your summer vacation more affordable, experts offer the following tips:

Know when to look. As a general rule, hotel rates drop closer to check-in date, says Sarah Keeling, director of public relations at Expedia, but there are risks for waiting until the last minute.

Continue Reading Below

“You may be forced into taking the room with the single queen bed for your family of four.” She suggests booking your hotel 14 to 21 days prior to your travel dates.

There are always exceptions to the rule. Hotel rates in Orlando and Las Vegas tend to start dropping between three months or 30 days ahead of arrival dates, according to Katime. Rates in New York tend to fall as the check-in nears, and rates in Chicago generally increase as the arrival date nears.

Look outside the epicenter “If you’re going to a very popular destination, the price decreases a significant amount if you go outside that attraction’s center,” says Katime. Research to make sure moving farther away from an attraction is still the most affordable option when adding a rental car or public transportation into the mix.

Be flexible with travel dates. Sometimes lengthening or shortening your trip by a day or two can bring the overall price down, says Gabe Saglie, senior editor at Travelzoo. High-demand markets may have different pricing for weekend and weekday stays.

Become loyal. “These days, hotels come up with very aggressive loyalty plans as a way to encourage people to visit again and again,” says Saglie. Members can benefit from amenities and upgrades, which can be a good value boost.

It’s not all about hotels. “[Vacation rentals] can often provide significant savings for families and larger groups traveling for a week or longer,” says Ferencsik. These properties have larger common areas, multiple bedrooms and more living space. If booking two hotel rooms, a vacation rental can save you up to 65%, according to TripAdvisor. “It’s the comforts of a home away from home but at a cool vacation destination,” says Ferencsik. They also come equipped with a kitchen, which could bring more savings from not having to eat out every night.

Bed and breakfasts can also bring significant savings, says Ferencsik, and most also have the great benefit of a complimentary breakfast, afternoon snack or happy hour. “B Bs are a fun option for travelers who like to socialize with other travelers—you can meet the other guests at breakfast and happy hours.”

Look off-season. “Seasonality is very big” when it comes to prices, says Saglie. “If you want to go to a luxury hotel in the Caribbean, it’ll cost you a lot more if you go in February than if you go in June.” Choose destinations having a natural slowdown in travel—consider the Caribbean, Mexico or a ski destination in the summer. “Dealing with a little bit of heat can be a great way to save money,” Saglie says. In the winter, London hotels are much cheaper than they are in July or August.

Choose your day wisely. Popular business travel destinations, like New York City or Chicago, may have lower rates on weekends while a leisure destination, like Los Angeles or Miami, may be more affordable during the week, says Saglie. Except for holidays, family-friendly destinations might have greater available and lower pricing during the week when kids are in school.

Consider waiting until the last minute. Booking your hotel in advance gives peace of mind but might not be great for your wallet. A last-minute booking can have significant discounts, according to Saglie.

“Mobile apps do a great job of pulling together last-minute deals in the area surrounding you,” says Courtney Scott. Travelocity’s senior editor.

But be warned: Availability does dwindle the closer you get to your travel dates. Experts caution against booking last minute if you’re traveling with a family. Although booking last minute can save you 30% to 40% on a hotel, you won’t be able to plan ahead and won’t have the stability that a package deal offers.

Look for renovated hotels. “During and right after renovations, hotels usually offer some great discounts,” says Saglie.

Bid on your hotel. Websites like Priceline.com or topsecrethotels.com claim to get users up to 45% off the published rate of a hotel but you won’t know the hotel until after it’s booked. This could work when you’ve already booked flights or are taking the train to your destination, says Scott. “If you can be adventurous and spontaneous, this is a great way to save.”

Book package deals. “The package concept may be a better deal because vacation packages providers can better negotiate room rates than the average consumer,” says Saglie. Occasionally you can find cheaper hotel rates without booking a package but for the most part, packages are more economical.

“When you bundle them together, hotels will release their deepest discounts,” says Scott. You can save up to $525 on average for a five-day trip. Most websites do the calculation so you can see the actual savings from bundling your hotel and flight versus booking them separately.

    What is Hospice Palliative Care?

    “Palliative care is whole-person health care that is multi-disciplinary in nature, can happen in any care setting, and that aims to relieve suffering and improve the quality of living and dying. It is care which should begin at diagnosis of a life-threatening condition and continues to end of life. It views the patient and the family as recipients of care and continues to include bereavement services for families after the death of their loved one.”
    -Hon. Sharon Carstairs June 2010

    3 Ways to Protect Your Small Business #protecting #your #online #reputation


    #

    How to Protect Your Small Business

    Most small businesses are begun as simple ideas, and grow into successful enterprises because of the motivation and entrepreneurial enthusiasm of their owners. As your small business becomes more successful, it also becomes more vulnerable. There are many potential disasters that can harm your business, and you need to be prepared to defend yourself as you grow. Protect your small business from technological and financial threats as well as threats to its reputation by being prepared and vigilant about prevention strategies.

    Steps Edit

    Method One of Three:
    Protecting Against Financial Threats Edit

    Protect your small business from potential lawsuits. Lawsuits can be expensive, even if you are confident that you will win. You will still have to pay for legal representation and spend a lot of time defending your company.

    • Watch your actions and words. Avoid doing business with people who have a reputation for unscrupulous behavior and do not engage in questionable business practices.

  • Be careful of conflicts of interest. Avoid situations that could be perceived as suspicious as well.

  • Insure your small business. Make sure you have enough liability insurance and consider additional coverage such as errors and omissions insurance or a directors and officers (D O) policy if you operate under a board of directors.

    Assess your ability to withstand a catastrophe. An unexpected disaster such as a fire or a hurricane could destroy your business, leaving you without income or a plan to rebuild.

    • Talk to your insurance agent about what is appropriate for your small business. Each business has different needs.

  • Develop a crisis plan. If disaster strikes, you and your employees should know exactly what to do. Include plans for any inventory, technology and how you will communicate with your customers.

    Watch your cash and profits. Keep checks and balances and other controls in place to avoid being robbed or losing your hard-earned profits.

    • Be careful who you hire. Conduct background checks and screen all employees and consultants, especially those with access to company finances.

  • Audit your business finances at least every quarter.

  • Require timely payments from clients and customers. Waiting for payments can cause cash flow problems. Insist on payment for services and goods within a reasonable amount of time, such as 30 days.

    Work with a good tax attorney or financial advisor. Small businesses are eligible for many tax breaks. Make sure you are taking advantage of all of them.

    Method Three of Three:
    Protecting Against Threats to Your Reputation Edit

    Use social media responsibly. While most small businesses can benefit from Facebook pages and Twitter profiles, remember that the digital dialogue can include people unhappy with your business.

    • Use online conversations to promote your products and services, and invite your customers and clients to discuss what they like about working with you.
    • Do not overreact to negative comments. Deleting anything that sheds unfavorable light on your small business might damage your reputation even more. You want to be transparent. Have a trusted customer or supportive partner respond to any attacks against your business with a positive story or testimonial.

    Develop a crisis communications plan. If something happens that can damage your reputation, you need to be prepared. Prepare a plan to respond to customers, the media and any other stakeholders.

    Consider working with a public relations professional. Keeping a PR team on retainer might be prohibitive for your small business. However, talk to PR professionals about engaging their services on a per-project basis.


  • What Does It Take To Sell Your Own Home? #selling #your #own

    What does it take to sell your own home?

    Selling your own home

    If you want to sell your own home without parting with thousands of dollars in commissions to real estate agents, consider the for-sale-by-owner, or FSBO, process as a way to save money.

    Doug Perlson, founder of RealDirect, a New York City company that helps FSBO sellers market their homes, says many owners who paid top dollar for their properties a few years ago are finding that the drop in real estate prices in the wake of the housing bubble makes it harder for them to come up with the funds for closing.

    A for-sale-by-owner approach is appealing because every dollar saved is that much more important when you re selling for less than you ultimately paid, he says.

    In 2011, 10 percent of home sales were FSBO sales, according to the National Association of Realtors. Selling your own home requires more time and effort than working with a traditional agent, says Perlson. But it s worth researching the pros and cons if you seriously want to sell your own home.

    Here s a look at factors to consider if you re thinking about selling your own home FSBO.

    Money-saving potential

    The biggest reason people sell FSBO is the potential to save money, Perlson says. Sales commission paid to a real estate agent is often as high as 6 percent. Avoiding this fee is the only way many owners can afford to sell, he adds.

    Saving money is a huge plus, but there are also some drawbacks to FSBO home sales, says Katie Wethman, a real estate agent in McLean, Va. Owners still have to spend some money upfront, and they also have to spend time and effort marketing their property without a guarantee they will find a qualified buyer.

    It s a given that sellers will have to design and print fliers, yard signs and other marketing material on their own. But according to Perlson, it can also cost sellers up to $400 a month to get their home listed in various Internet home sales sites and a local multiple listing service, or MLS.

    A commitment of time

    Homeowners also have to take time to stage their property, take photos and write descriptions for their listing, Perlson says. Instead of handing the keys to a real estate agent to handle showings and open houses, FSBO sellers are responsible for being available to potential buyers. This can mean staying home on nights and weekends so potential buyers can visit.

    The work and time commitment really comes around showings, Perlson says. Sellers can set their own schedules, so they don t necessarily have to be available every evening. But it is important to be as accommodating to potential buyers as possible, he adds.

    Dealing with low offers

    The seller hopes to save money, but if a buyer makes an offer on an FSBO, it could be lower than what the owner hopes for. The buyer may want to participate in the savings, Wethman says.

    If a potential buyer has his own agent, he may not even consider an FSBO home unless the owner is willing to pay the agent s commission, according to Perlson. That s because the seller s agent would normally split his fee with the buyer s agent, so with a FSBO, the owner takes the place of the seller s agent, he explains. If you agree to the sale, expect to pay around 3 percent of the purchase price to the buyer s agent.

    Your net proceeds would lower, but there is a benefit of working with buyers agents because it can expand your pool of prospects, Perlson says. If you re going to get the highest possible price, you need to have the most potential buyers.

    Legal disclosures

    Even after you agree on a price, you still need to prepare the sales contract, says Shawn Christopher, a real estate attorney in Henderson, Nev. The contract should list the responsibilities of both the buyer and seller, terms of the sale, and how the transfer will take place.

    He adds that if you don t disclose problems before the sale, such as a foundation crack, roof leaks or mold, the buyer may try to seek legal action later when they find out about the problem.

    This may be avoided if the seller hires an attorney to review their contract and even conduct the closing, he says. Some states require the use of an attorney for the sale. Typically, lawyers charge $300 an hour or more for their services, Christopher says, but the cost of good legal help is worth it.

    Potential FSBO home sellers should make sure they research their market and assemble a skilled team to help, Wethman says. No one thinks they need a professional until something goes wrong.

You can recommend how much (and how often) you want to distribute money from that fund to Tidewell Hospice or other charities. You cannot direct the gifts.

    An endowed gift can create a new endowment or add to an existing endowment. The principal of the endowment is invested and a portion of the principal s earnings are used each year to support our mission.

    Tax on the growth in value of an asset such as real estate or stock since its original purchase.

    Securities, real estate, or any other property having a fair market value greater than its original purchase price.

    Real estate can be a personal residence, vacation home, timeshare property, farm, commercial property or undeveloped land.

    A charitable remainder trust provides you or other named individuals income each year for life or a period not exceeding 20 years from assets you give to the trust you create.

    You give assets to a trust that pays our organization set payments for a number of years, which you choose. The longer the length of time, the better the gift tax savings to you. When the term is up, the remaining trust assets go to you, your family or other beneficiaries you select. This is an excellent way to transfer property to family members at a minimal cost.

    You fund this type of trust with cash or appreciated assets and receive an immediate federal income tax charitable deduction. You can also make additional gifts; each one also qualifies for a tax deduction. The trust pays you, each year, a variable amount based on a fixed percentage of the fair market value of the trust assets. When the trust terminates, the remaining principal goes to Tidewell Hospice as a lump sum.

    You fund this trust with cash or appreciated assets and receive an immediate federal income tax charitable deduction. Each year the trust pays you or another named individual the same dollar amount you choose at the start. When the trust terminates, the remaining principal goes to Tidewell Hospice as a lump sum.

    A beneficiary designation clearly identifies how specific assets will be distributed after your death.

    A charitable gift annuity involves a simple contract between you and Tidewell Hospice where you agree to make a gift to Tidewell Hospice and we, in return, agree to pay you (and someone else, if you choose) a fixed amount each year for the rest of your life.

    DO IT YOURSELF AND SAVE MONEY TODAY

    Is the interior of your cars plastic scratched. Having scratches on the interior plastic or vinyl of your car can be ugly. Especially if you are going to be selling it. Many times by moving things in and out of your car, scratching of the plastic interior can occur. There are different methods to repairing and fixing this yourself. Most involve sanding the plastic, painting the plastic, and heating the plastic.

    One of the easiest ways to fix this fast is to go to an auto salvage yard and find the same exact car as yours. With any luck you can find the exact piece of door panel plastic in the exact color. We have done this many times with doors, bumpers, mirrors, and dashboards. However, if using an auto salvage yard is not possible, then see below for how to fix this without replacing the plastic.

    To repair the scratched plastic on your car interior WITHOUT A KIT:

    STEP 1: Clean the plastic surface to remove any dirt or debris.

    STEP 2: Using a heat gun. put the heat to about half and warm the scratched surface until it is soft and mushy. NOTE: Make sure you do not overheat the plastic as you WILL burn it.

    STEP 3: Apply a grain pad (around $7 dollars) to the plastic surface as this will re-texture the plastic. NOTE: Be careful when doing this step as the plastic will be very HOT!

    STEP 4: After applying the grain pad, let the plastic cool and sand with superfine sandpaper to smooth it out if needed.

    TIP: If the plastic has faded, you can purchase special types of dyes that are made just for car plastic.

    Another way of fixing the scratched plastic is to use a kit. A car interior plastic scratch remover kit will cost around $40 to $50 depending on different factors. The best scratch remover kit we have used is from Scratch Wizard and came with everything needed to fix the scratches in the plastic.

    To repair the scratched plastic on your car interior WITH A KIT:

    STEP 1: Sand the scratched plastic with 220-240 fine grit sandpaper.

    STEP 2: Apply the included activator to the scratch.

    STEP 3: Sand again with 220-240 fine grit sandpaper.

    STEP 4: Clean with the supplied cleaner.

    STEP 5: Apply multiple coats of the factory color matched dye included with the kit.

    NOTE: A heat gun accelerates the drying process.

    This Scratch Wizard kit can be used on plastic, vinyl, or leather in your car s interior. More info on the kit here .

    A scratch removal kit from ScratchWizard will include 11 oz. factory-matched vinyl, leather, and plastic dye in aerosol spray can. 4 oz. vinyl, leather, and plastic cleaner, scuff pad, superglue and activator, 220 grit sandpaper, and video instructions.

    Hospice Marketing – Are You Tapping The Target Who Can Dramatically Grow

    Hospice Marketing Are You Tapping The Target Who Can Dramatically Grow Your Census?

    When it comes to hospice marketing. Most hospices focus almost exclusively on marketing to medical providers. Makes sense right? After all they have the power to refer. But doing so ignores a powerful demographic. One that has the need, the ability, the drive and the opportunity to refer to your hospice. She is the in home gatekeeper and she should be a key focus for your hospice.

    We know the struggles with consumers thinking all hospices are the same; we know the struggles of ‘the list’ given to patients by case managers. But I can tell you from 20 years of ROI studies of our hospice gatekeeper direct strategies consumers have power and they will motivate their physician to refer and they will demand the hospice partner of their choice. To the point of dramatic census growth, averaging 60 percent with our partners.

    We have several case studie s but here is one that is a great example of the power of targeting the in home gatekeeper. We partnered with a hospice that had only three provider liaisons working out of three locations at the time. They decided to expand their service area throughout the entire state. Expansion came without the power of acquisition, meaning no relationships, no existing patients. And no additional provider liaisons. Since relationships with physicians and other medical providers take a while to build, we took our story directly to the in home gatekeeper. We created an intense gatekeeper direct strategy involving social media, web, traditional marketing, advertising and recreating conversations we knew would resonate deeply with her. We used specific strategies to lower her psychological purchase price of hospice care and to build a connect between her and our hospice partner. Their census grew 300% taking them from three locations to 35 and positioning them as the largest hospice provider in their state.

    We continue to see significantly more individuals benefiting from hospice when a sound gatekeeper direct focus works in tandem with building supportive and educational relationships with providers. So for most hospices what seems to be missing in their efforts to connect to this powerful referral source?

    Though many hospices’ messaging begins to speak to the gatekeeper (Web, Facebook, brochures, advertising), they often are focused more on listing services, explaining what she doesn’t know about hospice, debunking hospice myths, or talking about their hospice and sharing testimonials. Rather than connecting to this powerful decision maker in real and profound ways that resonate with her. This takes understanding this gatekeeper better than they understand themselves. We’ve spent two decades gathering intensive data on what will drive her action to choose a certain hospice. If your hospice wants to care for more individuals and be able to provide the full benefit of hospice sooner, then look to the in home gatekeeper; she can be your hospice’s best friend.

    Consider re-inventing your conversations with her. Truly examine how you are communicating with her. Then build strategies and messages based on intensive research that tell your hospice’s story like it has never been told before, in a way she will find hard to ignore. Then give these messages the power to be heard.

    UN Condemns U.S. Police Brutality, Calls For ‘Stand Your Ground’ Review

    * Panel issues recommendations after review of U.S. record

    * Says killing of Michael Brown “not an isolated event”

    * Decries racial bias of police, pervasive discrimination

    * ACLU calls for addressing racial inequality in America

    GENEVA, Aug 29 (Reuters) – The U.N. racism watchdog urged the United States on Friday to halt the excessive use of force by police after the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white policeman touched off riots in Ferguson, Missouri.

    Minorities, particularly African Americans, are victims of disparities, the U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) said after examining the U.S. record.

    “Racial and ethnic discrimination remains a serious and persistent problem in all areas of life from de facto school segregation, access to health care and housing,” Noureddine Amir, CERD committee vice chairman, told a news briefing.

    Teenager Michael Brown was shot dead by a white police officer on Aug. 9, triggering violent protests that rocked Ferguson – a St. Louis suburb – and shone a global spotlight on the state of race relations in America.

    “The excessive use of force by law enforcement officials against racial and ethnic minorities is an ongoing issue of concern and particularly in light of the shooting of Michael Brown,” said Amir, an expert from Algeria.

    “This is not an isolated event and illustrates a bigger problem in the United States, such as racial bias among law enforcement officials, the lack of proper implementation of rules and regulations governing the use of force, and the inadequacy of training of law enforcement officials.”

    The panel of 18 independent experts grilled a senior U.S. delegation on Aug. 13 about what they said was persistent racial discrimination against African-Americans and other minorities, including within the criminal justice system.

    U.S. Ambassador Keith Harper told the panel that his nation had made “great strides toward eliminating racial discrimination” but conceded that “we have much left to do”.

    Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, who shot Brown, has been put on paid leave and is in hiding. A St. Louis County grand jury has begun hearing evidence and the U.S. Justice Department has opened its own investigation.

    Police have said Brown struggled with Wilson when shot. But some witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.

    “STAND YOUR GROUND” LAWS

    In its conclusions issued on Friday, the U.N. panel said “Stand Your Ground” Laws, a controversial self-defense statute in 22 U.S. states, should be reviewed to “remove far-reaching immunity and ensure strict adherence to principles of necessity and proportionality when deadly force is used for self-defense”.

    Ron Davis, father of Jordan Davis, a 17-year-old shot dead in a car in Jacksonville, Florida during an argument over loud rap music in November 2012, attended the Geneva session. Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teen killed in Miami, Florida by a neighborhood watch volunteer, testified.

    The U.N. panel monitors compliance with a treaty ratified by 177 countries including the United States.

    “The Committee remains concerned at the practice of racial profiling of racial or ethnic minorities by law enforcement officials, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Transportation Security Administration, border enforcement officials and local police,” it said, urging investigations.

    The experts called for addressing obstacles faced by minorities and indigenous peoples to exercise their right to vote effectively. This was due to restrictive voter identification laws, district gerrymandering and state-level laws that disenfranchise people convicted of felonies, it said.

    Jamil Dakwar of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said the U.N. recommendations highlighted “shortcomings on racial equality that we are seeing play out today on our streets, at our borders and in the voting booth.

    “When it comes to human rights, the United States must practice at home what it preaches abroad,” he said.

    About Los Angeles International Airport

    Los Angeles International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world, serving about 60 million passengers each year. In fact, it’s the go-to hub for more than two-thirds of all visitors traveling to Southern California. It’s made up of nine terminals, each built in a different era with its own unique architectural style. It’s an expansive site, and walking from one terminal to the next can take more than 10 minutes. Those who prefer not to walk can take advantage of the free shuttle bus that makes a circle around the facility. Keep in mind that this airport is generally quite crowded at all times of the day, so visitors should leave ample time for flight check-in.

    After arriving in the City of Angels, guests can head over to Los Angeles International Airport hotels to unpack for the stay and unwind before exploring the city. For example, the Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza are only a short walk from the hub. Another great option is Candlewood Suites, which has been renowned by past guests for its friendly staff and wide array of amenities – you’ll benefit from the barbecue area, fitness center, free high-speed Internet and business services available here.

    Welcome to Los Angeles

    Los Angeles is a massive city laid out on 467 square miles laid out along the Pacific Ocean. Its natural scenery is one of its biggest draws – the bustling metropolis is enveloped by lush valleys and forests, pristine beaches, mountain ranges and the expansive Mojave Desert. It’s made up of several counties, including Orange, San Bernardino and the city’s namesake county, as well as a handful of districts. The Hollywood district is the beating heart of the destination, where you’ll find historic studios, the sets of famous movies and plenty of movie stars. The downtown central business district is also a nightlife-lover’s playground, containing the Grand Avenue cultural corridor, ritzy restaurants, chic bars and trendy entertainment venues.

    The Los Angeles metro area is among the most populous in the country, with more than 17 million residents, and visitors can become overwhelmed by the large crowds and fast-pace character of the metropolis. But it’s a very diverse city that’s welcoming to people of all lifestyles, and the thriving tourism industry makes it an amiable destination for visitors. Travelers should keep in mind that public transportation is generally not an option for getting to many places in Los Angeles – the bus and rail system is largely considered inadequate, and most use cars to get around.

    Plan Your Trip

    Things to Do in Los Angeles

    Guests at Los Angeles International Airport hotels have a wide variety of cultural and historical attractions at their fingertips. Visitors may want to start their tour of the City of Angels by hitting the top sites, such as the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Venice Boardwalk and the Getty Center. Fine art fans will enjoy a trip to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, which contains an impressive collection of works that span several centuries. You’ll come across everything from ancient Chinese ceramics to paintings by Rembrandt, Magritte, Cezanne and other masters.

    Hollywood is also a highlight of many tourists’ travel itineraries. Take a stroll along the Hollywood Walk of Fame, catch a show at Grauman’s Chinese Theater and visit the tombstones of some of the industry’s biggest stars at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Be sure to stop by the Hollywood Museum to discover old artifacts from the cinema history – it contains vintage posters, intriguing props and even the original jail cell of Hannibal Lecter.

    Home Equity to Consolidate Debts – Refinance Your Home or Get a Second Mortgage

    What does using home equity to consolidate your debts mean? Essentially it is using the equity in your home / refinancing your home to consolidate your debts into one payment in order to pay off your debts.

    A “Home Equity Loan”, “Home Equity Line”,”refinancing your mortgage / re-mortgage” and getting a “second mortgage” are all different names for the same thing and are sometimes used as a debt consolidation option. These terms refer to the bank lending you money against the portion of your home that you own. So if the bank thinks that your home is worth $300,000 and your mortgage is for $250,000, then you own $50,000 of your house. This is called your “equity”.

    Increasing your mortgage is something that the bank may let you do, by taking out a second mortgage to use up some of this equity to pay off your debts. (Check out our handy mortgage and debt consolidation calculator ). You would then have two mortgages: your first mortgage and a second mortgage which could be the debt consolidation home loan . If this is something you’re interested in doing, speak with your bank or credit union to find out how it works, to get information about the mortgage rules in Canada and if this option could work for you. Sometimes if you have bad credit. it might be difficult to get a debt consolidation loan. so using home equity could be another possibility. Check with a Credit Counsellor to make sure that you choose the right option.

    Selling Your House to Pay Off Debt – Talk to a Credit Counsellor About Consolidating Debts

    You could also sell your house to pay off debts. though this should be a last resort and pertain to your situation, e.g. down-sizing in retirement. There are things to know before using your home equity line. so to choose the best way / option that fits your situation, especially if you’re retired and your income has changed, talk to a trusted, accredited non-profit Credit Counsellor.

    Interest Rates for Second Mortgages – Can Be Higher Than First, Talk to Your Bank About Using Your Home Equity

    Sometimes you can get the same interest rate on your second mortgage as you got on your first mortgage, but this isn’t always possible (talk to your lender to find out more). If you do have to pay a higher interest rate on your second mortgage, you can set up the due date / term to correspond with the due date / term for your first mortgage. This will allow you to combine them at the bank’s best interest rate when they need to be renewed.

    Re-mortgaging may also be an option that your lender can explain to you. It may allow you to keep a low interest rate, only have one mortgage payment and still give you funds to pay off other debts.

    History of Mortgage Rates in Canada – Declining Since 1980’s

    Ever since the early 1980’s mortgage rates have been declining in Canada. They peaked at over 20% at that time but are now typically offered in the 3% – 6% range. It is wise to remain mindful of the fact that we are currently living with historically low interest rates. This means that we cannot count on them to stay this low forever. The average five year mortgage rate over the past 60 years has been 8.95%. So if you are considering refinancing your home, make sure you can afford an “average” interest rate of 9% in the long term.

    Finance Companies and Sub Prime Lenders or Loan Companies Offering Mortgages – Higher Interest Rates than Banks

    Finance companies and sub-prime lenders also offer mortgages. Their interest rates will almost always be higher than the bank’s and can often range between 14% – 30%. These rates are a lot higher because these companies tend to lend money / cash to people in financial situations that involve more risk than banks usually want to take on.

    High interest loans like these can be used as a tool to get you from point A to point B, but you should do your best to find a better arrangement as fast as possible. It is very hard to get ahead paying really high interest rates.

    Advantages of Using a Second Mortgage to Consolidate Debt

    1. The interest rates are typically low
    2. Flexible payment arrangements. You can usually extend your amortization (the length of time required to pay back the loan) to create an ideal monthly payment

    Disadvantages of a Second Mortgage

    1. You must have enough equity in your home as well as income to make both mortgage payments
    2. You may be charged a number of fees for the costs involved in setting up a second mortgage
    3. Banks often don’t like to do small second mortgages. $10,000 may be the minimum that they will consider

    How Does PHP Updates by Your Web Host Impact your WordPress Sites

    Recently one of our users contacted us about a notice they received from BlueHost (one of the recommended WordPress hosting providers) about upgrading to PHP 5.4. We thought it would be beneficial to cover how this affects WordPress users and website owners. In this article, we will explain how PHP updates by your web host impact your WordPress sites. We will also discuss the things you can do to avoid any conflicts or downtime on your website.

    A PHP update by your web host is supposed to go smoothly, but it can also go terribly wrong. It all depends on your web host, and how they configure their servers. This is why we recommend our users to choose the best WordPress hosting, so they know that there are top-notch engineers who are looking after those servers. Choosing an unreliable web host for your WordPress site can cause unexpected downtime during or after the update and there is pretty much nothing you can do about it except switching to a better host.

    WordPress and PHP Updates

    WordPress is developed using the open source programming language PHP. At the time of writing this article, WordPress requires PHP version 5.2.4 or greater. The current stable version available for PHP is 5.5.7.

    Most shared hosting providers are currently offering PHP version 5.4.* installed on their servers. Some web hosts may even allow you to change your PHP version from their control panel. There are various reasons for not using the bleeding edge and the newest stable versions of PHP by web hosts, but the most common reason is that the latest versions can sometimes break some PHP applications. However, they also don t want to stay far behind. Currently PHP 5.4.* is used by pretty much most shared WordPress hosting providers.

    Things You Need To Do When Your Host Updates PHP

    Your web host is probably already hosting thousands of WordPress site. They will take every precaution they can to make sure that everything goes smoothly and customers don t feel any glitch in the service. The notice you have received allows you to be informed about the update and keep a look out to see if anything goes wrong. Although it is unlikely that this update will break things, it is always good to have a fallback plan.

    First of all, we always recommend our users to regularly backup WordPress sites. If you do not have an automatic backup solution in place like BackupBuddy. VaultPress. or BackWPup. then it is time to install one of them or at least create a manual backup of your website.

    After backups, the next thing you need to do is to make sure that you are running the latest version of WordPress. Also make sure that all your plugins and themes are up-to-date. Go to Updates screen and install any updates available.

    WordPress itself and most popular WordPress plugins will not be affected by PHP update. However, it is possible that some plugin may stop working. If a plugin on your site has stopped working due to a PHP update, then you need to contact the plugin author for support or find an alternative.

    What to Do if a PHP Update Breaks your WordPress Site?

    There are very little chances of a PHP update breaking your WordPress site. However, with the abundance of free and paid plugins, a single line of poor code can result into an error. The first thing you need to do is make sure that it is not a plugin or theme causing this error. To do that deactivate all your WordPress plugins and switch to a default WordPress theme.

    If this does not solve your issue, then contact your web host s support team. There is a good chance that the issue you are facing will already be in their notice, and they will be able to assist you.

    If your web host is unable to help you out, then try to install a fresh copy of WordPress and then restore your WordPress site from backup.

    If none of this helps, then perhaps it is time to change your WordPress Hosting.

    We hope that this guide helped you understand how PHP updates by your web host impact your WordPress site. For feedback and questions please leave a comment below.

    Carole Rains says:

    The PHP update by Bluehost broke the checkout page on my WordPress site. Items added to the cart did show up in the cart page at checkout, but the cart icon in my header said the cart was empty. In addition, when the button for enter credit card info is clicked, it triggers an error message that says invalid shipping method. Bluehost agreed to switch me back to PHP 5.2 temporarily, but said at some (undetermined) point in the near future they will switch to the new version regardless.
    Any suggestions on how I can fix this?

    Marilyn Lesniak says:

    When I updated my pho to the newest versuon, I only got 1 problem. When I open posts and click on tags I receive this message.:

    How do I fix this? Thx!

    Jan Reilink says:

    (as sent via Twitter)
    It s not PHP updates that break WordPress websites or plugins. It s not updating WordPress (or plugins) that breaks when PHP is updated BTW, the WordPress core and most plugins I use run perfect with PHP 5.5.

    Most hosting providers will keep an older PHP version available for customers to temporarily switch back to when something goes wrong. Where I work, 5.4.* is the default and both 5.5* and 5.3* are available. Version 5.3 until PHP drops the support for security updates.
    So, always check with your hosting provider first if that is possible before getting angry with your hosting provider

    For as far as I know, a lot of hosting companies configured PHP in a way that lets you set up custom configuration settings through .user.ini files: http://www.php.net/manual/en/configuration.file.per-user.php. When all error reporting and/or displaying is disabled, you can easily enable the logging and/or displaying of errors:

    log_errors = On
    error_log = /path/to/your/logfile.txt
    display_errors = On

    This will ease the fixing of older, poorly maintained plugins.

    Another item to watch out of is that plugins and other applications that have been protected with older versions of Ioncube might stop working when the PHP version is changed. The developer of the plugin or application needs to update their Ioncube protection first.

    Once you make the change, you need to make a list of all the plugins applications you are using and go through then one by one to check for functionality with the new php.

    That said, I am running bleeding edge PHP with the latest WP and apart from applications that were protected with old Ioncube versions, everything is running smoothly.

    I ve noticed my host allow me to choose what version of PHP I want to use for each site hosted on a shared account. After reading this I will use that option with caution.

    Letters: Sharp-looking uniform; screening officers for ability; Iraq at crossroads; Afghan camo

    I’ve been reading the service and dress uniform debate since 2001. While I’m not in favor of issuing “pinks and greens” uniforms to the whole Army or even making it optional, I have no problem with Pentagon staff being issued them.

    Soldiers today only need a dress blue uniform (Army Service Uniform) for ceremonies and military balls. I would love a change with our current blues.

    Many Soldiers are starting to catch on with another uniform that few know of. Soldiers I have shown this uniform love it. I think it would be an improvement over the current blue uniform. It’s the Army 1902 Model Blue Uniform (enlisted version).

    Could you please bring this uniform into the debate. It would be nice for Soldiers to know there were sharp-looking uniforms before World War II as well.

    Screening officers for cognitive ability

    A problem plaguing part of the Officer Corps in today’s military is the low cognitive ability of some officers. There is no doubt that in order to be a successful leader in the military, you need to be an above average individual. This includes possessing an above-average cognitive ability to effectively solve the complex problems the military faces today.

    In order to commission as an officer, there are many physical requirements an individual must pass, including a medical examination, and a physical fitness test. The military also requires that an individual be a college graduate. The military accepts that an individual who possesses a college degree also possesses a high degree of cognitive ability, and this is a mistake!

    An individual who has a college degree does not necessarily possess the cognitive ability to be a successful officer.

    There is a significant difference in academic rigor among today’s colleges and universities. The academic challenge that a person faces at a service academy or an Ivy League school is much different than at less prestigious community colleges and state schools. The military, however, does not address this difference and values both degrees as equal when it comes to meeting the requirements to commission.

    I am not arguing that individuals who attend community college, or smaller state schools are not capable of serving as officers in the military, I am arguing that because these individuals did not face the same academic challenges as their peers, that it is possible that they do not possess the cognitive ability to perform the job of an officer.

    We need to administer a test that measures the cognitive ability of every officer entering the military. We already screen enlistees who are entering the military with the ASVAB, so why do we not do this with our officers? If we continue to associate a college degree with cognitive ability, we will continue to fail the enlisted ranks, as well as the country, by putting individuals in leadership positions that do not possess the tools necessary to succeed.

    Iraq at crossroads

    The liberation of Mosul and the wider Ninevah province from the Islamic State group and its brutal Salafist jihadi doctrine is the subject of many Iraqi conversations. To capitalize on the lessons learned from the bloody three-year battle, Iraqis must take stock of the political process.

    Liberation is not a solution in itself and fundamental questions need to be asked: Do Iraqis want a united or divided country? What is better, a federal system or a confederation? Should there be a state dominated by the center or decentralized provinces with new and broad powers?

    Was ISIS’ occupation of large swaths of Iraqi territory a sufficient warning of the fragility of the country’s political system, governance and social cohesion? Or do Iraqis (God forbid) need another horrific wake up call that will lead to the end of Iraq as we know it?

    Have Iraqi parties failed to learn from the lessons of the crisis? Different factions have used the state to service their own narrow interests, taking advantage of the chaos when Iraq faced its greatest existential crisis.

    What are the doses of antibiotics required in the Iraqi body so that terrorism departs for good? This is an urgent question that all Iraqis need to answer.

    We shouldn’t forget that when the liberation of Mosul is complete, the eyes of the international coalition will turn west toward Syria. Iraq is not immune from what is taking place next door. The government, NGOs and the international community must create a new environment in the liberated areas for social justice and work on a new formula for co-existence.

    Despite all these challenges, Iraqis have shown the rest of the world that they have the strength of character to develop the country’s social and political fabric. Once Iraq has addressed the grand questions of rule of law, governance, revenue distribution and identity, the focus must then shift to defining a new political culture in Iraq and creating a roadmap for a confederation with the Kurdistan Regional Government, the most viable formula for co-existence with the Kurds.

    Decentralization has to be accelerated, corruption addressed, a population census — long overdue — must be conducted for countrywide planning.

    It won’t be easy, but these are urgent and important moves for the people and future of Iraq.

    Governing Iraq after liberation will be the real acid test of Iraqi leadership. The liberation of Mosul must be the start of the nation’s recovery, otherwise, warlords, camouflaged by different names and fronts, will prevail.

    It is important to remember that the presence of ISIS militants in Mosul created a new generation of young supporters. It is necessary to admit that a new mutation of the group will be no less evil and acts of terrorism will continue. The threat has the potential to move inside cities, as well as some areas that remain outside the state’s authority. Let us not allow the liberation of Mosul to be a stopgap before the next wave of extremism.

    Leaders must lead, and not be led.

    Controversial Afghan camo

    Note: Hundreds of readers commented on Army Times Facebook page responding to new woodland camouflage uniforms costing American taxpayers $28 million, though the camo was chosen by an official browsing online. Here’s a sample of the comments:

    Some Senator or Congressman should definitely throw a fit about this needless spending! “Dear President Trump I just found a way you can save $28 million and it’s not by switching to Geico.”

    Corey L Mclinko

    They want to cut benefits to veterans injured in the war, sometimes by the very people we gave the uniforms to, yet we just keep dumping money into this bottomless pit called Afghanistan.

    Hey, they Army put me in a pale blue uniform that didn’t work anywhere except grandma’s couch so why should they have been any more diligent or less wasteful when in came to the Afghans?

    At least somebody besides Joe is mad about that stupidity. I love how the inspector explained it. “What if they liked pink uniforms. “

    How much will charity help your tax bill?

    To understand the benefit that charitable donations give to your taxes, first you have to understand how income taxes work. This is something that many people surprisingly misunderstand.

    When you earn ordinary income from working at a job, you have to pay income taxes on it. We all know that, of course. What many people don’t quite understand is how the amount you pay is calculated.

    Let’s say you are a single person earning $50,000 this year (we’re not going to worry about issues like personal exemptions and other tax issues that would further complicate the issue – we’ll just look at $50,000 in taxable income after such things). To figure out how much taxes you have to pay, you have to look at the income tax rate table. For 2011, it looks like this for single people (there’s a different table for married couples):

    For income between $0 and $8,500, you pay 10% in taxes.
    For income between $8,500 and $34,500, you pay 15% in taxes.
    For income between $34,500 and $83,600, you pay 25% in taxes.
    For income between $83,600 and $174,400, you pay 28% in taxes.
    For income between $174,400 and $379,150, you pay 33% in taxes.
    For income over $379,150, you pay 35% in taxes.

    So, as I mentioned, we’re looking at a single person who makes $50,000 a year.

    For the first $8,500 of that (the $0 to $8,500 bracket), that person has to pay 10% of the income in taxes. That’s $850 for this bracket (that’s 10% of $8,500).
    For the next $26,000 of that (the $8,500 to $34,500 bracket), that person has to pay 15% of the income in taxes. That’s $3,900 for this bracket (15% of $26,000).

    For the rest of his pay ($15,500), that person is in the $34,500 to $83,600 bracket, which means that person has to pay 25% of that portion of his income in taxes. That’s $3,875 for this bracket (25% of $15,500).
    To figure up the person’s total tax bill, they simply add together those pieces, which totals $8,625. This person will owe $8,625 on their taxes this year.

    Now, how can a person lower that amount? The most common way is through deductions. The government gives out standard deductions each year on a person’s taxes. For 2011, that amount is $5,800 for a single person. How that works is that you simply subtract that deduction from the total amount of income the person earned for the year. So, this person’s income for tax purposes is actually $44,200.

    So, let’s look at this person’s actual taxes after their standard deduction.

    For the first $8,500 of that (the $0 to $8,500 bracket), that person has to pay 10% of the income in taxes. That’s $850 for this bracket (that’s 10% of $8,500).
    For the next $26,000 of that (the $8,500 to $34,500 bracket), that person has to pay 15% of the income in taxes. That’s $3,900 for this bracket (15% of $26,000).
    For the rest of his pay ($9,700), that person is in the $34,500 to $83,600 bracket, which means that person has to pay 25% of that portion of his income in taxes. That’s $2,425 for this bracket (25% of $9,700).
    To figure up the person’s total tax bill, they simply add together those pieces, which totals $7,175. This person will owe $7,175 on their taxes this year.

    So, that person’s standard deduction on their taxes actually saved him $1,450. The standard deduction may be $5,800, but it only saved the guy $1,450 because the deduction just reduces his total income for the year in terms of taxes.

    Charitable giving works exactly the same way. Every dollar you donate to a registered charity becomes a deduction on your taxes, just like a standard deduction.

    Let’s say the person above donates $5,000 to his church (a 10% tithe) and $2,000 to Doctors Without Borders and another $2,000 to L’arche Tahoma Hope. That’s a total of $9,000 in charitable donations.

    So, this person makes $50,000 a year. From that, he can either subtract his standard deduction ($5,800) or he can subtract his charitable donations ($9,000). This means that his taxable income – the amount he pays on his federal income taxes – would likely be $41,000. Let’s look at his taxes now .

    For the first $8,500 of that (the $0 to $8,500 bracket), that person has to pay 10% of the income in taxes. That’s $850 for this bracket (that’s 10% of $8,500).
    For the next $26,000 of that (the $8,500 to $34,500 bracket), that person has to pay 15% of the income in taxes. That’s $3,900 for this bracket (15% of $26,000).
    For the rest of his pay ($3,700), that person is in the $34,500 to $83,600 bracket, which means that person has to pay 25% of that portion of his income in taxes. That’s $1,625 for this bracket (25% of $6,500).
    To figure up the person’s total tax bill, they simply add together those pieces, which totals $6,375. This person will owe $6,375 on their taxes this year.

    In other words, this person’s $9,000 charitable contribution saved them $2,250 on their taxes. That’s because the person was in the 25% tax bracket before the donation and in the 25% tax bracket after the donation, which means that they essentially saved 25% of their donation on their taxes. (Sometimes, a donation will drop you to a lower tax bracket, which is fine.)

    However (and this is where the readers pointed out my mistake in the original version of this post ), the standard deduction would save the person $1,450. The actual savings – compared to the standard deduction – for this charitable giving is $800. Charitable giving works best as a tax deduction if it’s coupled with other deductions, such as home mortgage interest.

    So, charitable donations are a great thing and they do offer some tax savings, but you don’t save $1 for every dollar you donate. Instead, you often reduce your tax bill roughly a quarter or so for every dollar you donate. That’s still a great little bonus.

    Hopefully that clears things up for you!

    4 WAYS WE CAN HELP YOU AFTER YOUR ACCIDENT

    The attorneys at Zanes Law have helped thousands of injured people make smarter, more confident legal decisions so that they are made whole after an accident. Today it’s your turn.

    Do you have questions or concerns about health insruance, providers, and covering medical costs?

    Medical Bills

    Medical bills caused by an auto accident are a cost that should be covered by your injury settlement. If you have health insurance, you should present your insurance card to all medical providers so they will bill your health insurance. If you do not have health insurance, you will need to find a medical provider that will treat you on a lien. This is something that Zanes Law can help you with.

    *Treating on a lien: This means that you will not be charged any up-front costs for treatment and the provider will be compensated upon your settlement. This provider would require payment for their services before you receive your proceeds from the claim.

    Property Damage Insurance

    Car rentals: If you have rental car coverage through your insurance carrier, you should request your car rental through them. It’s usually an easy process and your insurance will be reimbursed if liability is accepted by the adverse party. When you do not have rental coverage, you will have to wait until liability is established with the other driver’s insurance.

    Property damage: Open a property damage claim with your insurance company (even if the accident is not your fault). If you have collision coverage on your insurance, your insurance company will fix your car and will work with the other car’s insurance to ensure they cover the costs. Please note, you may be required to pay your deductible up-front if liability has not yet been established. Once it is, your insurance company will be able to get your deductible back and reimburse you. Click here for information about property damage after a car accident.

    Bodily injury: Injury claims are completely different than property damage claims. If you are injured due to a car accident, we recommend you consult with a personal injury lawyer or accident lawyer to open your bodily injury claim for you. If you were injured in the accident, you need to seek medical care immediately and you need to speak with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. If you are injured and choose to speak with the insurance adjuster on your own, you must make it clear to the adjuster that you are in fact injured. However, our advice is that you seek the assistance of a personal injury attorney and that you limit the conversations that you have with the insurance adjuster. Let your personal injury attorney handle all of these conversations on your behalf.

    Lost Wages Compensation

    Lost wages: If your accident has caused you to miss time from work, you are entitled to some type of compensation through your injury claim. You should document all time you took off and keep all doctor’s notes that justify your time off.

    Pain and Suffering: This is a term used in the legal industry that refers to emotional and physical stress, as well as the actual physical pain, caused by a car accident. Injury victims are entitled to compensation for pain and suffering.

    Overall compensation: Settlement amounts are directly correlated to the facts of a particular case. Some factors that determine a settlement amount are: types of injuries sustained, how long the individual sought medical treatment, total amount of medical bills, future medical bills, and many other factors. We recommend that you contact the personal injury attorneys at Zanes Law in order to find out what the actual value of your claim is.

    Everything

    Bills, property damage, medical treatment, insurance, lost wages, and compensation.

    If all of the above are concerning you right now, we recommend you speak to a personal injury attorney to answer your specific questions. Yes, a personal injury attorney. Not a general attorney who practices all case types. A personal injury attorney works on these cases all day, everyday and is more experienced when it comes to injury claims. An accident attorney can assist with motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, construction accidents, premise accidents, bicycle accidents, mass torts, burn injury and class action lawsuits to name a few.

    Questions For Your Hospice Evaluation

    February 24, 2014 | By Casa de la Luz

    A hospice evaluation might seem overwhelming to you, but preparing a list of questions in advance can help the appointment go smoothly. Casa de la Luz Hospice provides free hospice evaluations with a registered nurse, and can be requested by a healthcare professional, a friend or family member, or the patient. An individual might be appropriate for hospice care if he or she has a terminal diagnosis, is not pursuing curative treatments, and has a life expectancy of six months or less.

    If you are eligible for care, and choose to sign up for hospice services, you are trusting the hospice provider and their staff to care for you in your own home. When meeting with the nurse, keep these questions in mind so you can make sure the hospice is the right fit for you.

    • When was the hospice established? How long have they been providing care?
    • How soon did the hospice respond to your request for an evaluation?
    • How many physicians are on staff, and how involved are they in care planning?
    • Can the chaplains connect us to our preferred faith community?
    • If the level of care my loved one needs exceeds what can be provided in the home, where will the hospice provide inpatient care? Do they provide inpatient care in their own facility, or are they contracted with another facility?

    If you or someone you love would like more information about hospice care in Tucson, contact Casa de la Luz Hospice at (520) 544-9890.

    What is Hospice Palliative Care?

    “Palliative care is whole-person health care that is multi-disciplinary in nature, can happen in any care setting, and that aims to relieve suffering and improve the quality of living and dying. It is care which should begin at diagnosis of a life-threatening condition and continues to end of life. It views the patient and the family as recipients of care and continues to include bereavement services for families after the death of their loved one.”
    -Hon. Sharon Carstairs June 2010

    Create Your Legacy at Tidewell Hospice

    Excellence In Service

    Tidewell reinforced its reputation as one of the premier hospices in the nation when the prestigious Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP) once again issued Tidewell accreditation with deemed status, signifying a gold standard of excellence among hospice care providers. Created in 1965 as a joint venture between the American Public Health Association and the National League of Nursing, CHAP was the first accrediting body for community-based health care organizations in the U.S.

    A charitable bequest is one or two sentences in your will or living trust that leave to Tidewell Hospice a specific item, an amount of money, a gift contingent upon certain events or a percentage of your estate.

    an individual or organization designated to receive benefits or funds under a will or other contract, such as an insurance policy, trust or retirement plan

    “I, [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise and bequeath to Tidewell Hospice [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.”

    able to be changed or cancelled

    A revocable living trust is set up during your lifetime and can be revoked at any time before death. They allow assets held in the trust to pass directly to beneficiaries without probate court proceedings and can also reduce federal estate taxes.

    cannot be changed or cancelled

    tax on gifts generally paid by the person making the gift rather than the recipient

    the original value of an asset, such as stock, before its appreciation or depreciation

    the growth in value of an asset like stock or real estate since the original purchase

    the price a willing buyer and willing seller can agree on

    The person receiving the gift annuity payments.

    the part of an estate left after debts, taxes and specific bequests have been paid

    a written and properly witnessed legal change to a will

    the person named in a will to manage the estate, collect the property, pay any debt, and distribute property according to the will

    A donor advised fund is an account that you set up but which is managed by a nonprofit organization. You contribute to the account, which grows tax-free. You can recommend how much (and how often) you want to distribute money from that fund to Tidewell Hospice or other charities. You cannot direct the gifts.

    An endowed gift can create a new endowment or add to an existing endowment. The principal of the endowment is invested and a portion of the principal s earnings are used each year to support our mission.

    Tax on the growth in value of an asset such as real estate or stock since its original purchase.

    Securities, real estate, or any other property having a fair market value greater than its original purchase price.

    Real estate can be a personal residence, vacation home, timeshare property, farm, commercial property or undeveloped land.

    A charitable remainder trust provides you or other named individuals income each year for life or a period not exceeding 20 years from assets you give to the trust you create.

    You give assets to a trust that pays our organization set payments for a number of years, which you choose. The longer the length of time, the better the gift tax savings to you. When the term is up, the remaining trust assets go to you, your family or other beneficiaries you select. This is an excellent way to transfer property to family members at a minimal cost.

    You fund this type of trust with cash or appreciated assets and receive an immediate federal income tax charitable deduction. You can also make additional gifts; each one also qualifies for a tax deduction. The trust pays you, each year, a variable amount based on a fixed percentage of the fair market value of the trust assets. When the trust terminates, the remaining principal goes to Tidewell Hospice as a lump sum.

    You fund this trust with cash or appreciated assets and receive an immediate federal income tax charitable deduction. Each year the trust pays you or another named individual the same dollar amount you choose at the start. When the trust terminates, the remaining principal goes to Tidewell Hospice as a lump sum.

    A beneficiary designation clearly identifies how specific assets will be distributed after your death.

    A charitable gift annuity involves a simple contract between you and Tidewell Hospice where you agree to make a gift to Tidewell Hospice and we, in return, agree to pay you (and someone else, if you choose) a fixed amount each year for the rest of your life.

    How to fund your long-term care – a beginner’s guide – Money

    How to fund your long-term care – a beginner’s guide

    People often have to make quick and difficult decisions about their own or a loved one’s care needs. Thinking about the options in advance will help in the long run.

    This all depends on your health and mobility, what level of help and support you need and the value of your savings, assets and income.

    You could end up paying for all of it, some of it or nothing at all.

    NHS continuing healthcare

    If you have a disability or complex medical problem, you might qualify for free NHS continuing healthcare (CHC) if you’re an adult, or free NHS continuing care (CC) if you’re under 18. Not many people know about it, so it’s important to find out if you’re eligible and get an assessment.

    This is a package of healthcare that’s arranged and funded by the NHS. It is provided for you at home, or in a hospital, nursing home or hospice.

    You’re more likely to qualify if you have mostly healthcare needs rather than social care needs. In other words you need a nurse rather than a carer.

    If you live in Northern Ireland, Continuing Health Care is provided by your local Health and Social Care Trust.

    Local authority funding for long-term care

    Your local council (or Health and Social Care Trust in Northern Ireland) may be able to help you with the costs of residential care.

    If you prefer, they can help you stay in your own home by providing support for carers, equipment and specialist services.

    Exactly how much funding you receive will depend on:

    • your individual needs (based on a care needs assessment)
    • how much you can afford to pay towards the costs of care yourself (based on a financial assessment)

    Your local authority or trust can arrange care services for you or you can choose to receive direct payments and organise things yourself.

    Self-funding your long-term care

    The biggest fear about funding long-term care is that you’ll be forced to sell your home. Fortunately, there are other options available.

    Depending on your circumstances you may not qualify for funding from the NHS or your local authority.

    Even if you do, the amount you receive may not be enough to completely cover your care costs. If this happens you’ll need to think about how you’re going to top up any contributions or pay for it all yourself.

    Claim the benefits you’re entitled to

    Even if you have to pay for care you may still be entitled to claim some benefits.

    4 Supplements That Alkalize Your Body #alkalize,body #chemistry,ph #balance,balance #your #body #chemistry,acid,alkaline,acidity,diet,nutrition,healthy

    4 Supplements that Alkalize Your Body

    Choosing a healthier lifestyle can be as simple as alkalizing your body, which may sound complicated but it really isn�t.� Basically, acid and alkaline are opposite sides of the biochemical spectrum.� Ideally, your body should be slightly alkaline, but most people s bodies are excessively acidic due to high stress levels, a diet high in meat, sugar consumption, and other acid-forming habits.� While supplements are not a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle, they can assist you in making your body more alkaline.

    1.� Green Food Powders
    There are many different kinds of green powders, primarily made from spirulina or chlorella algae and the juices of various types of grasses:� barley, wheat, or alfalfa.� These ingredients might seem like a recipe for swamp water but add a teaspoon or two to water, juice diluted with water, or a smoothie and you ll be surprised how good they can taste.� More importantly, they help alkalize your body, thereby promoting greater energy, improved resistance to illness, and less pain.� If you don�t like one type, choose a different kind since there is a significant variation in taste between various green powders.

    2.� Calcium
    To cope with acidity, your body may withdraw calcium from your bones since it is a natural anti-acid mineral.� Like a bank account from which regular withdrawals are made, your bones can become vulnerable to excessive calcium losses.� To help restore the amount of calcium in your body, you can supplement with this critical mineral.� Everyone�s needs are different but they usually range from 800 mg to 1500 mg.

    3. Magnesium
    In the same way that the bones act as a reserve for alkaline calcium, your muscles are reservoirs for the mineral magnesium, which is also alkaline.� Most nutrition experts estimate that 80 percent of people are deficient in this important mineral.� If you�re prone to headaches or muscle tension, you may find that supplementing with magnesium is helpful.� Most people take between 400 to 800 mg of magnesium.

    4.� pH Drops and Powders
    There are special formulations on the market designed specifically for balancing your body chemistry.� And, as with anything, there is a huge variation in the quality of these products so it may take some experimentation to see which one works best for you.� They are usually named pH drops or pH powder or something similar.� Usually they contain a solution of chlorine dioxide or hydrogen peroxide, which releases oxygen in your body, helping to restore biochemical balance.� Sometimes the powders contain a variety of alkaline mineral salts, namely:� potassium, magnesium, manganese, calcium, and iron.� Follow package instructions for use.

    This information is provided for educational purposes only and should not be construed as diagnostic or prescriptive. Always consult your physician prior to starting any new supplements.


    Vehicle Donation #donate #your #car #to #npr


    #

    Vehicle Donation

    To donate your vehicle, call 866.586.9227 (866 KUOW CAR) or fill out this online form on DonatingIsEasy.org

    If your vehicle (automobile, truck, boat, motorcycle, RV or aircraft) is no longer of use to you, it can still go a long way toward supporting local public radio as a donation to KUOW.

    KUOW has contracted with Charitable Auto Resources, Inc. (CARS), a San Diego–based company to manage this program for KUOW. CARS is a nationwide service and has given millions of dollars to not–for–profit partners like KUOW.

    The contribution KUOW receives from CARS is 80 percent of the automobile’s net sale price or $35, whichever is greater. Depending on the age and condition of the vehicle, it will either be sold at auction or for parts. The average gift to KUOW has been $555. The car may be worth more through a private sale.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Does my car have to be running to qualify for donation?

    No, but vehicle must have an engine and be towable. Vehicles that are in extremely poor condition, made from non–recyclable material, or are far from our tow range may be declined. Call our representative to find out if your vehicle qualifies.

    What paperwork do I need?

    The only paperwork needed is a signed title. (Please note: a clear title indicates the title is in the name of the donor without a lien.)

    What if I lost the title?

    You will need to get a duplicate title and call us when you have received it.

    Do I get a receipt for my donation?

    Yes, our driver will issue a receipt at the time of pick-up. This is not your final tax receipt. The initial acknowledgement will indicate your name, and the year, make, model and condition of the vehicle you are donating.

    A final acknowledgement with our Federal ID number will be mailed to you within 30 days of the sale stating the amount of gross proceeds received from your vehicle. This will be your receipt for your charitable contribution.

    Donors will be allowed to take the amount for which the vehicle sold. You will be sent a letter with this amount when the vehicle sells.

    What can I claim as a deduction?

    According to the tax law effective January 1, 2005, if the claimed value of the donated vehicle exceeds $500, the taxpayer is limited to the gross proceeds of the sale.

    What if my car is valued over $5,000?

    Effective January 1, 2005, you will no longer be required to have vehicles appraised. The value you may claim will be the amount of gross proceeds received from your vehicle.

    What happens to my donated vehicles?

    The vehicles are sold at a private auction. The funds from the vehicles are donated to KUOW.

    How quickly can my vehicle be picked up?

    Vehicles are picked up at a time that is convenient for you. Call our representative to find out what times are available in your neighborhood.

    Why does CARS need Social Security Numbers?

    Your Social Security number is required for the tax receipt if the car is valued over $500. If the donor does not wish to give their Social Security number they can only deduct a maximum of $500. The number is encrypted in the CARS system.

    Tax receipt and acknowledgements over $500:

    Donors will get an acknowledgement and tax form 1098c from CARS on behalf of KUOW.

    Acknowledgements under $500:

    Donors will get an acknowledgement from CARS on behalf of KUOW. Donors can use the tow receipt or acknowledgement from CARS for tax purposes.

    What if the tow truck driver didn’t leave a receipt?

    If the tow truck driver does not leave a receipt, CARS will mail a receipt to the registered address.

    Do I have to be with the vehicle at the time of pick–up?

    No. Special arrangements can be made by calling our representative at 866.586.9227 (866 KUOW CAR)

    How To Prepare For Your Hospice Evaluation

    Hospice care is a service, covered by Medicare, designed to serve patients in the last six months of life. The holistic approach to care ensures that a patient s medical, emotional, and spiritual needs are fulfilled. The hospice team also addresses the needs of the caregiver and family supporting the patient. To learn more about hospice care, contact your physician for a referral, or visit Caring Connections to search for hospice providers in your area.

    Here are some suggestions to help you prepare for your hospice evaluation.

    Once you call the hospice provider, you ll make an appointment to meet with the hospice representative. He/she will be determining whether or not you are eligible for hospice services.

    Be ready to give the hospice provider some of your healthcare basics. They ll need the full name of the patient, the patient s address, and a telephone number for the patient s medical power of attorney. The hospice is also likely to request the name and phone numbers of your physicians and the patient s primary diagnosis. The primary diagnosis is the reason you re requesting hospice services, such as cancer, dementia, congestive heart failure, etc.

    Just like you might research a big purchase before buying, or research a neighborhood before moving, you can research and compare hospice providers. Medicare requires providers offer the same core services, so you ll want to focus on the quality of care that will be provided to you and your loved one.

    Look for data. Ask questions.

    • When was the hospice established?
    • How soon did the hospice respond to your request for an evaluation?
    • How many patients, on average, does the RN case manager see?
    • What is the hospice s average response time to a call during office hours and after hours?
    • How many hospice physicians are on staff, and what is their experience and qualifications?
    • How many nurses are certified hospice and palliative care nurses?
    • Can the chaplains connect you and your loved one to your preferred faith community?
    • What is the experience level of your social worker?
    • Is there an inpatient unit? Where is it located, and how is it staffed?

    You can also use this helpful, downloadable pdf from Caring Connections to guide your meeting with hospice providers. The Choosing a Quality Hospice pdf was developed by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, and provides a number of questions and space for you to take notes.

    The end of life is a sensitive, emotional time. You want to choose the hospice provider who can respect and support your loved one s needs and your needs. The goal is to offer your loved one comfort, peace, and dignity in the last months of life.

    Learn more about the benefits available to you with this pdf download of the Medicare Hospice Benefits booklet, provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid.

    If you are seeking hospice in the Tucson, Arizona area, Casa de la Luz Hospice would be happy to offer you information regarding our services or answer any questions you might have about hospice care. We can be reached at 520-544-9890 every day of the week, any time of day.

    Hospice Billing Software Features

    With state-of-the-art dashboards in our Hospice Billing Software, your biller will always have the most up-to-date information pertaining to billing at the tip of their fingers. Run in real-time, these Hospice billing reports will give you a snapshot of things like Accounts Receivable and Suspended Claims. We also provide red flags for information that is missing from a patient record, including items like missing insurance data or outstanding forms.

    Hospicesoft boasts robust auditing tools for hospice billing purposes. When generating a batch, hospices have the ability to pre-screen patients within that batch to identify any missing pieces. Once created, specific information like lapses in certification, or potential warnings will be identified. With this multi-stage auditing, you can be confident that your claims will come out clean.

    Numerous alerts and safeguards exist on the patient record. Hospicesoft’s hospice billing software will alert you if information like the Physician’s NPI is missing, or if a certain HCPCS code doesn’t match the identified level of care. We also make it extremely clear as to what codes, occurrences, etc. will carry forward to your claims from your patient records.

    We make your biller’s job as simple as click, review, and submit. Everything on your claims will automatically populate from the information documented on the patient record. Whether it’s line-item visits, occurrence codes, or total and uncovered charges, you’ll have it.

    With the new CR8358, significant changes face billers across the nation. Hospicesoft provides a tool to integrate with your pharmacy provider. Your medication file can be uploaded, and our direct mapping allows information to carry directly to your patient record, and then to the claim itself. Suddenly, your mountain just became a mole-hill.

    Do You Have ‘The Little Blue Book’ in Your House?

    If you are wondering what I’m talking about, it is for you that I am writing this blog! Here’s the bottom line: We were all born one moment of one day, and each of us is going to die one moment of another day — we just don’t get to know when that will be. For some of us, that is a major source of anxiety. Furthermore, we live in a society that has kept us in the dark about what to expect when we, or someone we love, dies. This absence of knowledge not only makes us ill-prepared to face death, but it feeds our fear of death, which in turn diminishes our enjoyment of life.

    It is perfectly normal to have some anxiety or fear about death, and in fact, most death-related anxiety is actually about the process of dying rather than about being dead. That’s where the little blue book comes in — this little 14-page blue booklet gently, kindly, and in a matter-of-fact manner explains the dying experience in such a way that it brings its readers great comfort. So why not reach for that comfort sooner rather than later? Why live with death anxiety on autopilot in the background of your mind? Why wait and find yourself called to the bedside of a dying loved one unprepared for what you will encounter and not knowing what to do?

    Most people working in the field of dying, death, and grieving know about “the little blue book,” as it has come to be known. Many hospice and palliative care organizations around the country give this book to their dying patients and their loved ones to ease them through the dying experience. It is entitled Gone From My Sight: The Dying Experience and is written by Barbara Karnes, RN, who was one of the pioneers of the hospice movement in this country in the early 1970s. To learn more about Barbara and her work, visit her website at https://www.bkbooks.com. Barbara’s other three titles are: The Eleventh Hour: A Caring Guideline For The Hours To Minutes Before Death (my personal favorite), My Friend, I Care: The Grief Experience. and A Time to Live: Living with a Life-Threatening Illness. All are available on her website.

    This blog is not meant to be an advertisement for Barbara and her work, but rather I am shouting from the rooftops to spread the word that each and every one of us has the opportunity to prevent the needless suffering that our fundamental ignorance about the dying process brings. Not knowing what is normal and what the signs of the end of life are, we often cling desperately to life, relying on physicians to come up with a pill or procedure that will prolong our lives. Sometimes this is reasonable, but often the dying and their loved ones simply lack the understanding of the dying process that would enable them to consider the relative wisdom of further medical interventions or the timing of opening the door to palliative care.

    Those of us who work in the field of dying, death, and grieving have satchels of stories about the ways people suffer unnecessarily through their own death or at the bedside of a loved one. Not knowing what to expect, what is normal, and how to support and comfort a loved one who is dying makes us ill at ease which detracts from a tranquil environment for the dying.

    As someone who writes often about dying, death, and grieving, I am quite passionate about the need for a basic education of the general public about this topic. That’s why I would go so far as to say that if I were queen of the world, I would make Barbara’s books required reading for everyone and as important as a fire extinguisher to have in your home!

    The vast majority of us will die of old age and/or prolonged illness. Having Barbara’s books on hand when you or a loved one begins the end of life’s journey empowers you all to do your very best to provide a loving, comforting, and supportive sendoff. Rather than worrying about what you should or shouldn’t do, what’s normal and what isn’t, and how to be the greatest comfort to your loved one, empower yourself with some basic education and serve as an example to others. Sitting at your dying mother’s bedside, when you know that what you are observing is normal, you can encourage her and let her know she is doing a great job of dying. In this case, a little knowledge is a very powerful, wise, and comforting thing.

You can also make additional gifts; each one also qualifies for a tax deduction.
