Will Judgments on Your Student Loan Affect Your Mortgage Refinance? (part 2 of 2)

Will your home be seized?
Believe it or not, most creditors are not interested in seizing your home.  If they place a lien on your property because of the judgment on your student loan, they might have to pay a good amount of money just to take your property.

If it gets sold, the lender may not always get a sufficient return on their investment.  Homes that get seized through a judgment do not sell at market value, which means that your creditor will not get a lot out of it.  This is why most creditors are not really interested in seizing your home just to enforce a judgment on a debt.

Furthermore, a lien does not automatically mandate you to sell your property – you are not forced to do so.  However, should you voluntarily sell the property or in this case, refinance it, you will have to pay your debt to your creditor out of the payment you received as a result of the transaction.

Second of all, seizure of property isn't something that most creditors will do because it is, quite simply, bad PR.  They want to enforce their right to collect but at the same time, they don't want to be seen in a bad light.  If you're still unsure about the whole thing, your lawyer can shed light on certain things, particularly about laws in your state.

What you should do
First, it's important that you see a lawyer regarding your situation.  They can help guide you on what you can do regarding your credit and give you information on the steps your creditor could take should they choose to enforce your judgment.  This should help you protect your property and whatever income you may be receiving at this time.

Second, you might want to discuss the steps you have to take regarding your application for a mortgage refinance.  Your goal here is to negotiate as best as you can fair terms – the kind that will help you keep your home and set you back on your feet again.

Will Judgments on Your Student Loan Affect Your Mortgage Refinance? (part 1 of 2)

People who want to start a new life and a new family will always look forward to buying a new home.  This should be easy, particularly if your credit standing is good but what if you've missed a few payments and already have a judgment on your student loans?  Student loans already make it challenging to obtain a mortgage but a judgment could make your application way more difficult and could actually affect the success of your loan.

How lenders look at you
Your student loans are not the only consideration your lenders will look at in case you need a loan from them.  They will assess the whole picture – your credit history – which will include every single cent you borrowed that has been documented.  This will include your credit card loans, car loans, mortgages and every other type of debt you might have.

Your lenders will also consider the cost of the property you're looking to purchase, the type of mortgage and your income.  If you've had a judgment on your student loans, this could cause your lenders to sit up and be wary of you.  They could either downright refuse you for a loan or hike your mortgage refinance rates.

Should the first scenario occur, you might have to find other means with which to pay off the judgment on your student loans or go and find other creditors that will take you in and give you a loan for a refinance.  Should the second scenario hold true, you will get the money for a mortgage refinance loan but you will have to pay your debt off the amount of money you receive.

Mind Mapping Drawing Tips (part 2 of 2)

Tip 3 – Be specific

Write down only what seems to matter and not the entire idea. Use keywords and phrases but not an entire sentence or paragraph. Be brief but straight to the point of what you want to convey. Use capitals in order to get only the important key points. You can write down notes which explain your keyword which can be located at the bottom of the word.

Tip 4 – Centralize the idea

Always put the idea in the middle of the page and not in corners. Students prefer that it is more useful to focus on a landscape type of view. Because the topic or main idea is placed at the center of the page, It will give you a maximum space for other related ideas to radiate from the center.

Tip 5 – Spacing

Some of the most significant mind mapping notes are those that have spaces left for further note-taking add ups. You can also choose to highlight some of the important information which the lecturer or you boss has reiterated. Spacing is good to provide additional information to join into the picture.

A good mind mapping is the one that is overflowing with appropriate details from the past and present.

Mind Mapping Drawing Tips (part 1 of 2)

Mind mapping, which is also referred to as a brainstorming diagram, involves jotting down a central idea on a piece of blank background then thinking up of related topics that are to radiate out centrifugally. Through focusing oneself in a central idea, a wider scope can be outlined because of the connection of one idea from another. Focus is the tool that is to be used when writing own ideas and words, observing branches that serves as connections between and idea to another. Mapping is very helpful in understanding and remembering new and vital information.

With this, there are several tips on how to efficiently make mapping work for your brain and your memory as well.

Tip 1 – Make relationships

Like familiar strangers wherein you are connected because of a friend of another friend, that is how facts and information should be accurately intertwined with one another. You can use arrows, colors, lines and even braches (like that of a tree part) to be able to show the possible connections of ideas being generated inside your mind. Relationships of one idea from the idea are important for one to understand the derivative of the new information patterned out through construction of the map. Personalized mapping denotes own designs and symbols which can effective for visualizing relationships meaningfully related to one another. Plus, it will help you recall and understand every “branched out” information.

Tip 2 – Do not judge, pause or edit

Linear thinking is the concept wherein these three elements are present. In mapping, analyzing is only secondary. What is important is the very thing that pops out your head while focusing on the idea. But you have to be sure that whatever pops out your mind is direly related to the topic otherwise you have to use your reasoning ability to pattern your thoughts. Modification can be done in the later stage of analyzing the entire concept of the idea. It is important that you allow yourself to be flexible that every idea can be included in the map for as long as the puzzle fits. Sometimes, the obscure topics are the ones that make sense.

Or it could be that the sport is banned in the area.

In choosing the location, be sure to find one with written guidelines and safety rules. Or if state law requires these operators to observe a certain code, see if these are complied with.

Learn To Draw Caricatures (part 2 of 2)
Don’t Mistake It For A Portrait

One thing that you should be cautious of is mixing up a portrait and a caricature. Remember, these two are different. Caricatures are generally cartoon renditions of the subjects being drawn. However, a portrait is a much realistic view of a subject. As soon as you begin learning how these are drawn, you would want to practice with people that you personally know or are close to. You should also have sufficient understanding of the human face’s basic layout. You can make use of various techniques too, like foreshortening and proportion. Different techniques in drawing are still applicable in this style.

Seeing Your Subject

You should see your subject in a 360 degree. This means see him/her at different angles and situations. This is considered to be the best way for you to have his/her whole sense of personality. You should also find features that you can minimize, rather than exaggerate. Not all characteristics are exaggerated by making them big. There are times that you just have to make them extra small to attain exaggeration. For instance, if you’ll be drawing someone that has a small mouth, you can exaggerate by making his/her mouth even smaller than usual. Doing this is something like reverse exaggeration.

Find Features To Dumb Down!

Dumbing down some features is another technique for your drawing to look more cartoonish. For instance, hair is usually “dumbed down” since you wouldn’t really want to draw each strand of it in a caricature. This minimizes the portrait look of your picture.

The Right Way To Exaggerate

Last but not the least, exaggerate However, do not overdo it. Do not exaggerate features which are not that recognizable in real life. For instance, if your subject does not have a big nose, then do not draw him/her with a big nose. Try to focus on features which could be exaggerated without making your subject unrecognizable.

Learn To Draw Caricatures (part 1 of 2)

Caricatures are one of the most popular forms of drawing. If you think this style of drawing is relatively new, it is not. This style of drawing has existed for ages already. In fact, even Leonardi Da Vinci used it! So, if you want to learn to draw caricatures, here are the basics that you need to know.

Getting Started

These are basically portraits that distort or exaggerate a person or thing’s essence. This is done to create a very easy and identifiable visual likeness or description of a subject by the use of exaggeration and oversimplification of various characteristics. These could be complimentary, insulting or both. It can also have an intense political purpose or simply be drawn for mere entertainment. Having said the general definition of caricatures, one thing is evident here: it is a very personalized form of art.

A Higher Sense Of Observation

Since it is personalized to a very high extent, you should first observe closely the subject you would be drawing. If it’s a person then, find out what are his/her features that are very recognizable. Go for the obvious. The observation part in drawing a caricature is the key to making the whole work successful. You cannot rely on a pattern for drawing a caricature. People have varying characteristics, which is why applying a template for all your subjects is not advisable.

For instance, maybe your dad has a big nose; noses are quite popular features that are used in exaggeration. Pick out the features that would make your subject very recognizable.

How to Make Your Own Magic Tricks (part 2 of 2)
Given that magic has been around for so long, it is impossible to come up with a new magic trick unless perhaps this is done on a very large scale. There was a time that a magician made a plane disappear then years later, something bigger came along like the Statue of Liberty.

But if you think about it, the principle is still the same. This was done using lights and creating the illusion that it really disappeared when in reality it is still there which just goes to show that sometimes coming up with a magic trick involves outdoing what someone else did.

Since it is hard to come up with a new magic trick each time you put on a show, one thing you can do is learn new tricks and then introduce this into your act. This will mean studying the trick from scratch like you have done so many times before and then practicing until you get it right.

You can do some research or get a fellow magician to teach you how he or she does it in exchange for teaching something that they want to learn. This is beneficial to both since you are both getting something new from this arrangement which will improve your skills as magicians.

Can you really make your own magic tricks? The answer is no but you can make some changes to what has been done by others in the past making it look different in the eyes of the audience. This could even be your signature magic trick if you don’t tell anybody about it even if someone somewhere else has probably done it.

How to Make Your Own Magic Tricks (part 1 of 2)

Magic has been around for more than 2 centuries. Some tricks have been modified or customized by the magician and you can do the same so you are able to perform your own magic tricks.

For that, you need to list down all the magic tricks you know. You probably learned this by reading a book or viewing an online tutorial. You then figure out which tricks you can change slightly and get the same results. Sometimes, instead of using one prop it can be substituted for another.

The best way to do this is to work your way backwards by knowing what is the end result then working your way towards the very beginning. This should be practiced as often as possible to see that it really works.

Aside from making changes in the magic tricks, try to also modify your presentation style. This will make it look as though no one has done this before even if someone already did it. For instance, if you have never used a wand before, introduce it into your act.

The wand has been used by many as a way to distract the audience so you will have to time to make the trick work.

When the changes have been made, try to get a small group of people to watch your perform. This could be some family members or friends. After its done, get feedback from them and listen to what they say. If they like it, try to get another group to watch because you want to make sure that your routine will be entertaining when you put on a show.

Gain Muscle and be a Fashion Icon (part 2 of 2)

There is a natural way of having the muscles that you love to have. You just have to be more committed and disciplined in order to follow the ideal way. Here are some of the most important tips in order to shape yourself up.

1. Modify your diet.
It is not enough that you exert so much effort in bodybuilding. You also have to maintain the required dietary allowance that you need in order to be in top shape. Easting foods which are rich in fatty acids (omega-3) and fish are rich in protein and will help you grow. Some of the fish which are rich in omega-3 are lake trout, salmon, herring, mackerel, sardines and tuna.

Veggies or plant crops which are also rich in omega-3 such as walnuts, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, spinach, soybeans, tofu and kale can also be included in the diet. Foods rich in omega-3 provide our muscles sensitive to insulin which help to fuel glycogen storage and hinder entry of amino acid into muscles.

2. Intake of sodium.
To encourage the growth of your muscles, you should increase healthy sodium intake in order to increase the fluid of your muscles. Sodium can enhance the absorption of amino acid and storage of carbohydrates in our bodies. Because of the effects it can do to the cellular fluid, you are to expect that sodium can add to gain weight which lessens muscles to strain and injure soft tissues.

3. Train.
If you really wish to have muscle gain, you have to work on some exercises which need resistance like dumbbells that are considered as free weights. They would train your muscles in the ancillary portion to build a mass that will be compounded on them. Dumbbells can be versatile and at the same time useful for building muscles because of the range of motion you can exert when you carry them.

Gain Muscle and be a Fashion Icon (part 1 of 2)

Gaining muscle mass is considered as one of the dreams of every male all over the world? Why? It adds up to their masculinity and makes girls want them and gain more confidence. Admit it, if you’re still in high school and someone asks you about what you want your body to look like, you’ll choose the jock that has a pea for a brain but a body of a ramp model rather than a geek hiding underneath glasses who’s a walking encyclopedia. But really, gaining muscle isn’t all for those who can’t gain brain. It’s just that, some would compensate gaining muscles rather than knowledge.

Much said. Would it be nicer if you have hunk-like muscles and a very intelligent personality? You’re like a walking package. Women love muscles more than an intelligent mind, well, not entirely. But most of them do. On the other hand, gaining muscles is for those who are conscious about their body. With the trend of having nice abs and mass, it would be nice if people see gaining of additional mass as something healthy and not just to prove masculinity.

Let’s face it. Because of the appearance conscious society that we live in today, some men result to drastic measures in order to maintain their supple physique even with the absence of exercise. If you are that type who uses artificial products like steroids, then it’s time that you renew your ways because there is no way that you can get something out of nothing.

The Perks and Controversies Surrounding Child Acting Career (part 2 of 2)

1. There have been many talks about the issues regarding money. Who will handle the child actor’s earnings? Their guardians are the rightful ones to keep and save them. But unfortunately, there have been many incidents wherein a child’s actor money had gone to waste because of mishandling. This may not be felt by the child on their younger years. But as they grow old and learn to reflect on everything, they will question what happened to the money that they have worked so hard for.

This was the inspiration for the original Coogan Law. Based on the facts that happened to a former child star who earned millions at a young age, Jackie Coogan, this law was enacted in California in 1939. It states that a portion of the child actor's earnings must be preserved in a blocked trust or a savings account especially made for such purpose.

2.  Child actors are believed to lose a very big part of their childhood by working and earning at such a young age. Although productions nowadays allow them time to study and play while on the set, this cannot alter the experiences that a kid will get from having a normal life, away from the light, the cameras and the directors yelling, action.

They experience the pressure to perform, to deliver according to what's expected from them. And they are being asked to play characters that may be sometimes hard to be understood by young minds.

3. These actors should be guided accordingly as they grow older. In most cases, no matter how successful they are as a child actor, a transition period will come wherein they would not fit right into any roles. As a result, they may lack the jobs that they need to augment income or to sustain their popularity.

Their guardians must prepare them for such occurrence. They must prepare these kids that there are a lot of possibilities that they may not be as popular or may not have the kind of a child acting career that they used to enjoy as they age.

The Perks and Controversies Surrounding Child Acting Career (part 1 of 2)

Most kids are naturally adorable. But as parents, before you even think about how to start a child acting career, you have to think hard if you really want to subject your tots to the harsh realities that the showbiz industry may bring their way.

Why do you want your children to be stars? Some might say that it is because of the glitz and the glamour. But most people think that it is for the money. If fate would allow your child to be part of a good production, whether it is on film or TV, the financial aspect is going to be truly rewarding. But you must know the facts that surround a child’s career in acting.

The Regulations
Child actors should abide the labor union codes. They should also be regulated both by the state as well as federal laws. Before a kid can get to work, their parents must first make sure that they have the proper work permit. This will also be vital for them to obtain their salaries. Different states impose different rules. So one’s guardian must understand what they will be faced with before committing into anything solid and final.

Undying Controversies
Through the years, there have been many issues regarding such career that still resurface from time to time. Most of these revolve around money, the psychological effects of the work on children and how such career affects their childhood in general.

Birth Control and Heavy Period (part 2 of 2)

Treatment for heavy period is based on your current health and medical history. If it has been found that birth control devices are the culprit, you may have to switch to another device so this will never happen again.

Often recommended by doctors are oral contraceptives because it has been proven to help regulate ovulation and reduce episodes of heavy periods. Since this may not go away right away, the doctor may also prescribe NSAID’s or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce the heavy period. They are also known to relive painful menstrual cramps.

There are two types namely combination birth control pills and progestin only pills. You should keep in mind that there are certain side effects in using them and if this is a problem, you should ask your doctor to reduce the dosage or recommend something else.

If birth control is not the reason and you are anemic, the answer will be to take iron supplements as part of your daily diet.

Should heavy periods still occur, this is the time that surgery may be the final solution. Some examples of these include Dilation and curettage or D&C, operative hysteroscopy, endometrial ablation, endometrial resection and hysterectomy.

Except for the last one mentioned, the others can be done on an outpatient basis. You can check in the hospital or clinic in the morning and be out by lunch or in the early afternoon.

The different birth control methods are effective in preventing pregnancy but not all of them can protect you from sexually transmitted diseases or STD’s. Two of those mentioned above are directly linked to heavy periods or menorrhagia so if you don’t want this to happen, you should be examined regularly by a doctor and consider other conventional birth control methods.

Birth Control and Heavy Period (part 1 of 2)

Menorrhagia better known as heavy period is a common problem for women. This is because the person may suffer from severe anemia and the only way to save her life is through blood transfusions. There are several causes such as hormonal imbalance, uterine fibroids, polyps, dysfunction of the ovaries, adenomyosis, IUD’s, medications, pregnancy complications and cancer. Of those mentioned, two are directly linked to birth control.

Hormonal imbalance happens may occur when you get too much estrogen and progesterone in your system. You have to remember that these two hormones are produced by the body and when you take pills that also carry this ingredient, a hormonal balance occurs. This is prevalent among adolescent girls and women who are nearing menopause.

Another is by using intrauterine devices or IUD’s.  Just like pills, this T-shaped plastic device is either wrapped in copper or contains hormones. Both are effective in preventing pregnancy but if ever you experience heavy bleeding, you need to remove it.

If you experience heavy bleeding as a result of either of the birth control methods, it is best to see a doctor immediately and tell that person when this happened.

Your doctor will ask you questions about your medical history before a physical exam will be done. These include blood tests, an endometrial biopsy, Pap test and ultrasound scan.

Should there be additional tests needed, you may undergo a sonohysterogram, a hysteroscopy or dilation and curettage otherwise known as D&C. This is done of course to rule out other menstrual disorders.

Supplemental Training for Your Golf Swing Muscles (part 2 of 2)

Muscle Groups Getting into the Act

The major muscle groups used in the trunk are the lateral rotators of the spine and hip. Most of these muscles are part of what is commonly referred to as the core group of back and abdominal muscles. These muscles initially rotate the trunk laterally from left to right in the back swing. After which the group on the other side contracts to rotate the trunk from right to left to power the downswing. Hip and thigh muscles help stabilize the spine and assist in the rotatory motion.

Muscles in the chest, back, and upper arms are used in the downswing to generate propulsive force. This power is translated through the speed built up in the golf club. The main movers of the arm are the pectoralis muscles of the chest and the deltoid muscles of the shoulder and teres and latissimus muscles of the back. Finally, the fine tuning of the direction of the swing is controlled by the muscles of the forearm and wrist.

Training Strategies to Improve Power and Speed

The goals of supplemental training are to improve muscle strength and increase response time. Strengthening core muscles is important, so abdominal exercises and balance drills will help stabilize proper form. Weight lifting is optimally concentrated on the muscles of the chest, shoulders and upper back where power is generated. Most people who do not do manual labor tend to have weak forearm and wrist muscles, so these should be targeted as well.

Isometric training is incorporated into supplemental training to improve response times. Golf swing velocity is best transmitted to ball speed by making the contact time as short as possible. This requires fast muscle responses, so drills to improve speed of muscular contraction are necessary. By balancing both strength and speed, golfers will quickly see improvement in their game.

Supplemental Training for Your Golf Swing Muscles (part 1 of 2)

The golf swing is a complex motion that involves the entire body. This complicated rotational movement uses as many as 32 individual muscles. Like any other physical skill, repetition using the proper form is the best way to improve. However, the dedicated golfer can rapidly increase their skill level by supplementing the basic swing drills with exercises specifically designed to strengthen crucial muscle groups and optimize their response.

Breaking Down the Swing

The three basic components to this movement are called the back swing, the down swing, and the follow through. Most of the power needed to drive the ball across the course is generated by the forward swing component. The back swing stretches key muscles in order to maximize their ability to generate power in the down swing. A properly executed follow through is necessary to reduce the possibility of injury by allowing muscles to reach their full biomechanical configuration before returning to their resting state.

The power for the swing is built up in three areas, the trunk, the arms, and the wrists. Force generated through the trunk is mainly a translation of rotational force around a pivot and is primarily a function of building momentum. This requires a strong base and a stable pivot. The pivot points are the spine and the hip joints.

The bulk of the propulsive power is generated through the arms, where contraction of the muscles greatly increases the velocity of the club. The seemingly inconsequential contribution of the wrist is important for stability and in order to properly direct the forces the swing has built up

Storytelling During Halloween (part 2 of 2)

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is one of them. The headless horseman of Washington Irving is sure make some children gasp. You can tell the story of the Flying Dutchman, a mysterious ship that is said to be a doom ship that brings bad things to other ships that crosses their paths. Dr. Frankenstein’s monster is also always popular.

Another classic is A Ghost Story by Mark Twain which has several adaptations that you could read for the kid’s enjoyment. Algernon Blackwood’s The Willows is said to be the best ghost story in history. You might also find some suitable adaptation for children somewhere in your bookstore or on the internet. Another work of Blackwood is The Empty House which is also pretty good.

Now, I have to remind you at this point that you will be reading these stories to children. You might want to kind versions that would be easier for children to grasp and understand. If you’re Halloween party is for adults, which I also think putting a storytelling session is a great idea, you can be as eloquent as you want. But in the meantime, simple and short adaptations would be better for children’s party.

If for some reason you can’t get any storytellers for your party, other options would be buying an audio or video CD of various ghost stories. There are several of these in the market and you can easily buy one off the rack of your favorite bookshop or audio store.

The idea here is to keep your options open. Of course Halloween parties involve game and prizes but having a Halloween storytelling session can be both fun and productive.

Storytelling During Halloween (part 1 of 2)

This might not be a great practice especially since children scare easily but still there are quite a number of relevant stories which you can tell during a storytelling session in a Halloween party or event. Even if it’s not Halloween, you will always have a request from your listeners to tell a scary story. So people have more excuse to demand a scary story during this day of the year when spirits and monsters are supposed to be free to roam the surface world.

Aside from scary stories, you can also narrate mystery type of stories. Having a storytelling session in your Halloween party program will keep the children quiet and at bay. This is also a good opportunity to prepare other things for the party.

What stories to tell? You can search the internet for various short scary stories that have both the Halloween scare factor and at the same time children will learn something productive and inspiring at the end of the story.

You can even draw from personal experiences or stories. It’s often “cool” hearing a story from someone who has experienced it first had or was really there. This gives the story a personal touch and the kids just love the idea of stories happening for real.

Remember not to overdo it though. These are children we’re talking about and if you scare them witless, they will certainly have nightmares and you’ll have parents breathing down your neck the next day. Now that would be a real scary situation for you as organizer or storyteller.

If you lack some modern shorts and have not time to prepare your own stories, you can always turn to the classics. There are several classic ghost stories that children nowadays have yet to hear.
