SQL Server – SQL INSERT Stored Procedure #stored #procedure, #sql #server,

#

SQL Server Stored Procedure – INSERT – Example

Source code to create and add sql insert stored procedure to catalog

The following example is for creating a simple insert stored procedure. You can run it through an explicit call from a host language program or directly from a DBMS query execution shell like SQL Server Management Studio or dbOrchestra.

You will note that just like in a INSERT statement you do not have to use all of the columns available when creating a stored procedure. You must however populate all columnar data associated with the PK (primary key), and columns associated with unique indexes (note: there are exceptions to this, but they will not addressed here), and columns defined in the ddl as NOT NULL .

Executing the sql insert stored procedure

Execute insert stored procedure

To run the insert stored procedure you need to supply a value to the student_id variable as well as populate all required data. In this example I have included a cross section of columns for your reference, as well as the datatype associated with the columns in our SQL INSERT.

A few thing to point out regarding the code above. Datetime and character data is entered using single quoted string. Integer data is entered without quotes. I also included all columns that were defined as NOT NULL. I also included the password column which is part of a unique index. You will note that I did not include columns for some of the non-unique indexes (soc_sec_num, other_id_num, and driver_license_num). I did this intentionally to demonstrate that they are not required columns. Having said this, in the real world one would only put indexes on columns where the intent was to actually collect the data for that column. I just wanted to make a technical point here. The pragmatic point is that you would want to expose columns that are part of indexes.

What stored row looks like after the SQL INSERT

I want to call you attention to the fact that all columns that are not referenced in the query get set to null. Also, if the schema had default values defined these would also get stored for that column when the rows gets inserted.

Criminal Cases #criminal #defense #attorney #oklahoma #city

Criminal Cases

Only the government initiates a criminal case, usually through the U.S. attorney’s office, in coordination with a law enforcement agency. Allegations of criminal behavior should be brought to the local police, the FBI, or another appropriate law enforcement agency.

The Judicial Process

Criminal cases differ from civil cases. At the beginning of a federal criminal case, the principal actors are the U.S. Attorney (the prosecutor) and the grand jury. The U.S. Attorney represents the United States in most court proceedings, including all criminal prosecutions. The grand jury reviews evidence presented by the U.S. Attorney and decides whether it is sufficient to require a defendant to stand trial.

Burden of Proof

In a criminal trial, the burden of proof is on the government. Defendants do not have to prove their innocence. Instead, the government must provide evidence to convince the jury of the defendant’s guilt. The standard of proof in a criminal trial gives the prosecutor a much greater burden than the plaintiff in a civil trial. The defendant must be found guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt,” which means the evidence must be so strong that there is no reasonable doubt that the defendant committed the crime.

Pretrial

At an initial appearance, a judge who has reviewed arrest and post-arrest investigation reports, advises the defendant of the charges filed, considers whether the defendant should be held in jail until trial, and determines whether there is probable cause to believe that an offense has been committed and that the defendant has committed it. Defendants who are unable to afford counsel are advised of their right to a court-appointed attorney. Defendants released into the community before trial may be subject to electronic monitoring or drug testing, and required to make periodic reports to a pretrial services officer to ensure appearance at trial.

The defendant enters a plea to the charges brought by the U.S. Attorney at a court hearing known as arraignment. More than 90 percent of defendants plead guilty rather than go to trial. If a defendant pleads guilty in return for the government agreeing to drop certain charges or to recommend a lenient sentence, the agreement often is called a “plea bargain.” If the defendant pleads guilty, the judge may impose a sentence, but more commonly will schedule a later hearing to determine the sentence. In most felony cases the judge waits for the results of a presentence report from the court’s probation office before imposing sentence. If the defendant pleads not guilty, the judge will schedule a trial.

Trial

Criminal cases include limited pretrial discovery proceedings, similar to those in civil cases, but with restrictions to protect the identity of government informants and to prevent intimidation of witnesses. The attorneys also may file motions, which are requests for rulings by the court before the trial, such as to suppress evidence that could violate a defendant’s constitutional rights.

If a defendant is found not guilty, the defendant is released and the government may not appeal. The person may not be charged again for the same offense in a federal court. The Constitution prohibits “double jeopardy,” or being tried twice for the same offense.

Sentencing

If the verdict is guilty, the judge determines the defendant’s sentence. During sentencing, the court may consider U. S. Sentencing Commission guidelines, evidence produced at trial, and also relevant information provided by the pretrial services officer, the U.S. attorney, and the defense attorney.

A sentence may include time in prison, a fine to be paid to the government, and restitution to be paid to crime victims. The court’s probation officers enforce conditions imposed by the court part of a criminal sentence. Supervision of offenders may involve services such as substance abuse testing and treatment programs, job counseling, and alternative detention options, such as home confinement or electronic monitoring.

Beard envy? Surgery may be the answer #health, #beard #envy? #surgery

Beard envy? Surgery may be the answer

  • The inability to grow a thick beard has some men turning to surgery
  • A transplant can run up to $10,000 for a full beard
  • One man says it’s the best money he’s ever spent

Take a look at Hollywood’s leading men, the White House press secretary and the hipsters strolling through Brooklyn. It’s obvious beards are in, and the inability to grow thick warm fuzz can leave some men feeling left out in the cold.

At least, that’s how it would seem from the reported uptick in facial hair transplants.

“Whether they’re filling in a few gaps or doing a complete beard construction, New York City doctors who specialize in the procedure said they’re seeing a growing number of men paying as much as $7,000 to pump up their beards,” wrote Serena Solomon, who first reported on the trend on the neighborhood news site DNAinfo New York .

But fear not, face-bald hipster men — you don’t have to live in the Big Apple to be able to sport a big beard.

In Portland, Oregon — host of the 2014 World Beard and Moustache Championship — Dr. Steven Gabel can help you get the right mustache to savor sips of craft beer and artisan coffee.

“In the Northwest here, there are a lot of men with facial hair, and they like to show it,” he said.

Gabel says his business in facial hair transplants has increased a lot over the years. People he performs transplants on usually have a beard already, he says, but have patches and want it filled out.

That’s not always the case, though.

“I saw a guy yesterday who really had no hair on his face. I did the first transplant on him about a year ago, and it is looking good,” Gabel said.

Gabel pointed out that it isn’t just hipsters looking to bolster their beards. “I get coat-and-tie types too. It’s all walks of life.”

So how does it work?

“It is a very meticulous procedure,” Gabel explained. The doctor and his technicians remove hair strands with the follicles intact from another part of the body — usually the bottom of the back of the head. It’s moved to where it is wanted on the face. Then the doctor makes a small hole in the face with a 0.8-mm blade and inserts each hair into place.

“The hard part is the angle,” Gabel said. “You have to go with the natural angle. You don’t want to put it in sticking straight out.”

Once it is all done, and the follicles are in place and the patient’s face has healed, the hair will grow in like a natural beard. You can even shave it — though why would you want to?

The procedure takes an entire day, and can run up to $10,000 for a full beard, Gabel said. Though there are risks just as in any surgical procedure, it is relatively safe.

“The most common thing that patients experience afterwards will be some temporary redness and itching to the area,” Gabel said. “Some people say it is more intense than others, and it is usually short-lived.”

Dr. Bernard Arocha recently opened an office in Austin, Texas, home of South by Southwest. an annual festival of music, film and interactive conferences. Facial hair is a small part of his business, which specializes in hair restoration, but he said he has definitely seen a beard boom in recent times.

“Procedures for mustaches, sideburns and beards have been in increased demand over the past year or two,” he said. “It’s more in vogue, stylish.”

In the city that boasts the slogan “Keep Austin Weird,” Arocha confirms his clientele is mostly young hipster types.

“That’s the demographic — 20-, 30-somethings, bohemian, artists, musicians,” he said.

James, who asked us to only use his first name for privacy reasons, had a full beard transplant done by Arocha. The 33-year-old already had something of a beard but wanted more.

“It was like beard steroids, basically,” he said.

According to James, the procedure was painless. He called it some of the best money he has ever spent.

“It’s thick enough now I actually get compliments on it,” he said. “Beards are flat-out awesome!”

In Nashville, aka “Music City,” Dr. Michael Ramsey performs facial hair transplants with PAI Medical Group .

“I would say the number of calls of people interested in beards is up fivefold,” he said.

Ramsey credits the sudden popularity of facial hair transplants to different cultures emerging in Nashville. On the one hand are the large unkempt beards modeled on the TV show “Duck Dynasty,” he says; on the other are the more stylized hipster beards.

“Nashville is a creative city, and there are relaxed styles and attitudes toward facial hair at work and in the office,” Ramsey said.

You don’t have to be stateside to get help with your face-mane. If you’re across the pond, as they say, hanging out in Manchester, England, you’ll find Dr. Bessam Farjo, founder of the Farjo Hair Institute.

“A full beard is very much a statement look, and it goes in and out of fashion,” says Farjo, who first developed and performed the procedure almost 20 years ago on a patient who had suffered from burns and wished to cover his scars.

The procedure is still predominantly used to treat men who have scarring for one reason or another, he said, but more and more clients simply wish to improve the density and coverage of their facial hair, purely for cosmetic reasons.

“The majority of men are looking to create a designer stubble look which seems incredibly popular nowadays,” Farjo said. “That being said, all it takes is for one recognized face to show off a new look for men to start considering their own facial hair.”

Protection of personal data – European Commission #europa,european #commission,institutions,news,calendar,organisation,commissioners,president,recruitment,contact,services,european #union,eu

#

Protection of personal data

In January 2012, the European Commission proposed a comprehensive reform of data protection rules in the EU .

On 4 May 2016, the official texts of the Regulation and the Directive have been published in the EU Official Journal in all the official languages. While the Regulation will enter into force on 24 May 2016, it shall apply from 25 May 2018. The Directive enters into force on 5 May 2016 and EU Member States have to transpose it into their national law by 6 May 2018 .

The objective of this new set of rules is to give citizens back control over of their personal data, and to simplify the regulatory environment for business. The data protection reform is a key enabler of the Digital Single Market which the Commission has prioritised. The reform will allow European citizens and businesses to fully benefit from the digital economy.

Whenever you open a bank account, join a social networking website or book a flight online, you hand over vital personal information such as your name, address, and credit card number.

What happens to this data? Could it fall into the wrong hands? What rights do you have regarding your personal information?

Everyone has the right to the protection of personal data.

Under EU law, personal data can only be gathered legally under strict conditions, for a legitimate purpose. Furthermore, persons or organisations which collect and manage your personal information must protect it from misuse and must respect certain rights of the data owners which are guaranteed by EU law.

Every day within the EU, businesses, public authorities and individuals transfer vast amounts of personal data across borders. Conflicting data protection rules in different countries would disrupt international exchanges. Individuals might also be unwilling to transfer personal data abroad if they were uncertain about the level of protection in other countries.

Therefore, common EU rules have been established to ensure that your personal data enjoys a high standard of protection everywhere in the EU. You have the right to complain and obtain redress if your data is misused anywhere within the EU.

The EU’s Data Protection Directive also foresees specific rules for the transfer of personal data outside the EU to ensure the best possible protection of your data when it is exported abroad.

Article 29 Working Party on Data Protection

The Article 29 Working Party, composed of representatives from all EU Data Protection Authorities, the EDPS and the European Commission, was set up under the Directive 95/46/EC. It has advisory status and acts independently.

Beauty Therapy Courses

What is beauty therapy?

Beauty therapy is the treatment of hair, skin and nails to enhance appearances and to repair damage. Beauty therapy treatments sometimes also include massages and other body relaxation exercises. Treatments usually take place in salons, but some beauty therapists also do house calls, work on film sets, or work backstage at live performances.

Why study beauty therapy courses?

Many people do their own hair, nails and make-up every day and wonder what the point would be of going to study beauty therapy. Like in other areas, there are some beauty therapy skills that can be self-taught, and other skills that can only be acquired through formal training. If you want to work as a beauty therapist, either by starting up your own business or by seeking employment in a salon, you will need to go for formal training in beauty therapy. Here are some reasons why you might want to consider studying beauty therapy:

You can learn how to take care of yourself and your clients.
You can learn how to perform a wide variety of beauty treatments.
You can improve your earning potential: many people are willing to pay good money for effective beauty treatments.
By completing a course in beauty therapy, you can gain formal recognition for the knowledge and skills that you acquire. Such formal recognition may increase your credibility in the eyes of both clients and employers.

Beauty Therapy Courses, Skills Academy

How do I get started with Beauty Therapy Courses?

Skills Academy makes studying and moving on to the next step in your career very easy. You can go through the list of beauty therapy courses and choose one that you are interested in. If you are not sure which course is right for you, you can get in touch with one of our friendly Course Experts: they will be able to help you decide on a course.

Where can I work as a beauty therapist?

If you are considering a career in beauty therapy, you may be able to work in one of the following places once you have completed your beauty training:

  • In a salon
  • On a cruise ship
  • At a spa or health resort
  • On film sets
  • At home (or at your clients home)

Supervisory guidance for managing risks associated with the settlement of foreign

#

Supervisory guidance for managing risks associated with the settlement of foreign exchange transactions

This document provides guidance to supervisors and banks on approaches for managing the risks associated with the settlement of foreign exchange (FX) transactions. It expands on, and replaces, the Basel Committee’s Supervisory guidance for managing settlement risk in foreign exchange transactions published in 2000.

Since the original FX settlement risk guidance was published, the FX market has made significant strides in reducing the risks associated with the settlement of FX transactions. Substantial FX settlement-related risks remain, however, not least because of the rapid growth in FX trading activities.

The guidance provides a more comprehensive and detailed view on governance arrangements and the management of principal risk, replacement cost risk and all other FX settlement-related risks. In addition, it promotes the use of payment-versus-payment (PVP) arrangements, where practicable, to reduce principal risk.

The guidance is organised into seven “guidelines” that address governance, principal risk, replacement cost risk, liquidity risk, operational risk, legal risk and capital for FX transactions. The key recommendations emphasise that a bank should:

ensure that all FX settlement-related risks are effectively managed and that its practices are consistent with those used for managing other counterparty exposures of similar size and duration.

reduce its principal risk as much as practicable by settling FX transactions through the use of financial market infrastrucutres (FMIs) that provide PVP arrangements. Where PVP settlement is not practicable, the bank should properly identify, measure, control and reduce the size and duration of its remaining principal risk.

ensure that when analysing its capital needs, all FX settlement-related risks should be considered, including principal risk and replacement cost risk and that sufficient capital is held against these potential exposures, as appropriate.

  • use netting arrangements and collateral arrangements to reduce its replacement cost risk and should fully collateralise its mark-to-market exposure on physically settling FX swaps and forwards with counterparties that are financial institutions and systemically important non-financial entities.
  • An annex to the final guidance provides detailed explanation of FX settlement-related risks and how they arise.

    Guide for Writing a Funding Proposal #funding, #proposal, #grant, #funding #proposal,

    #

    GUIDE FOR WRITING A
    FUNDING PROPOSAL

    This Guide for Writing a Funding Proposal was created to help empower people to be successful in gaining funds for projects that provide worthwhile social service. A major theme that runs throughout the Guide is a concern for the development of meaningful cooperative relationships – with funding agencies, with community organizations, and with the people you are serving – as a basis for the development of strong fundable initiatives. The Guide is built on the assumption that it is through collaboration and participation at all levels that long term change can be effected.

    To make this Guide as useful as possible, all suggestions have been carefully reviewed with a concern that they be easy to implement and can have the greatest positive effect on the creation of a funding proposal. (This is the same design concern that I used for the creation of the companion guide for graduate students – Guide for Writing and Presenting Your Thesis or Dissertation ). Long orations are minimized and suggestions are presented in a direct and clear manner. Actual proposal examples are included so that you can easily see the different suggestions demonstrated.

    As you are going through this Guide you will probably see things that aren’t clear, need fixing, or should be further clarified. Please send them along and I will do my best to improve the Guide based upon your ideas. I try to make major revisions in the Guide at least 2-3 times each year. Your suggestions on how to improve this Guide will be most appreciated

    And finally, I receive many requests asking me to recommend a book or two that would be helpful in writing a good proposal. I’ve started to create such a listing of books I’ve identified and my review of each of them. Feel free to check out my selection of books to help with the preparation of a funding proposal .

    Enjoy using this Guide and I hope it brings you good luck as you seek funding for your ideas!

    History of DUI Laws #az #dui #laws

    History of DUI Laws

    Across the nation, every state has rules concerning drinking and driving. Whether it is referred to as DUI (driving under the influence), DWI (driving while intoxicated), or OUI (operating under the influence), the penalties are still very serious for this offense.

    In 1910, New York became the first state to adopt drunk-driving laws was New York. California was the next state to pass driving under the influence laws, and the other 48 states soon followed suit.

    These early DUI laws simply stated that a driver could not operate a motor vehicle while intoxicated. However, inebriation was not clearly defined by the lawmakers and courts at this point.

    In the 1930s, two committees were tasked with making roads safer in the U.S. The American Medical Association created a committee to study the most common problems that lead to vehicle accidents. During this same time period, the National Safety Council set up a study to develop tests that could be used to determine intoxication. After doing research, the two groups determined that a driver with a BAC of 0.15 percent or higher could be presumed to be inebriated, while a driver with a BAC under 0.15 could not.

    As a result of the committee’s findings, 0.15 percent became the first commonly-used legal limit for blood alcohol concentration (BAC) in 1938.

    DUI laws and penalties began getting stricter in the 1970s. This is mainly due to groups such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD). Candy Lightner was also a leader in the fight for tougher DUI laws.

    The pressure from these groups led to many changes in DUI laws, most notably raising the legal drinking age to 21 years old in all 50 states. These groups also changed the way laws were enforced by police departments – until this time, enforcing drunk-driving laws was not a priority.

    The legal limit was affected during this time. Originally 0.15 percent, it was later lowered to .10 percent. Due to federal pressure on all of the states, this limit was then further reduced to 0.08 percent.

    Zero Tolerance laws were also adopted by many states. These laws make it illegal for minors under the age of 21 to drive a vehicle with a BAC of 0.01 or 0.02 percent.

    Automatic license suspension laws were also passed across the nation. These laws allow for an administrative license suspension after failing a breath test or refusing to take the breath test altogether.

    Cover My Face – Facial Cum Shot Porn Site #cover #my

    #

    Cover My Face

    Reviewed: Friday, May 30, 2008 (Last Update: Friday, April 26, 2013)

    Cost: $2.95 Trial, $29.95 Monthly, $59.95 for 90 Days RexMag.com Rating: 94

    When I first heard the title Cover My Face. I thought it would be just another blowjob-or-handjob-then-cum-on-my-face sites. I was wrong every girl on this site takes on at least ten guys, and then they totally cover her face in cum. Some of the hottest gang bang action can be seen on this site! Who knew? Maybe they should change the name of the site to Cover My Face Gang Bangs so it’s more obvious. I know I never would have overlooked this site for so long if it had been called that. Anyway, let’s get inside and see what Cover My Face has to offer.

    Right now there are around 120 updates on CoverMyFace.com. including photos and videos. When I first did this review in 2006 there were 30 and I remember saying I’m sure there will be a lot more by the time you read this, but even right now that’s decently plentiful – and I was right! In addition to the Cover My Face website, you have full access to the Brain Pass network with your membership. It’s not just bonus sites I’m never swayed by bonus sites. It’s an actual network membership. You’ll get a ton of sites for just one price. The full list follows.

    You can download the movies either in sections as Windows Media format (WMV) files or Quick Time format (MOV) files, or as a whole Windows Media format (WMV) file from start to finish. The videos are nice and clear not full screen or hi def, but definitely good. There’s a section that shows you all the latest videos, which is really helpful if you’ve been away for a while, or if you visit often and you want to see what’s changed since the last time you logged in.

    One of my favorite things is that it lists very conveniently on each update just how many cumshots are in each video. There are at least ten for every video, but what about 12 or 13? You can see that at a glance without ever having to click on a single link. Very nice.

    The girls on this site are really hot, and they’re major cock cravers. You can tell that they can’t get enough of these guys’ dicks. They’re grabbing them and tugging at them, shoving them in their mouths, begging for them to fuck them in the pussy and ass. They want it bad, they want it now, and they want a LOT of it! They won’t be satisfied until these guys cover their face and that’s exactly what you’ll see at the end of every single movie.

    Cover My Face definitely offers some of the hottest gang bang action I’ve ever seen. I give them an 94/100! I’m sure they will continue to update in the future and give us more and more of what we want though they have been consistent so far.

    At $29.95 per month or $59.95 for 6 months, I definitely recommend this site! You get a ton of content for your money from the world renowned Brain Pass network, and the babes on this site are truly slammin’. Get ’em while they’re hot! Cover My Face is waiting for you!

    What Exercise Machine Works the Tensor Fasciae Latae?

    by JEN WEIR Last Updated: Feb 04, 2014

    Jen Weir writes for several websites, specializing in the health and fitness field. She holds a Bachelor of Science in exercise science from Montana State University, is an NSCA-certified strength and conditioning specialist and maintains a personal trainer certification from the American College of Sports Medicine.

    Located on the upper side of your thigh, the tensor fasciae latae is enclosed between layers of fascia, or fibrous tissue. This muscle works with the iliopsoas to flex your hip and with the gluteus medius and minimus muscles to abduct your hip. The tensor fasciae latea plays a key role in hip and knee stability. Several exercise machines work the tensor fascia latae to keep it strong.

    Stair Climber Machine

    Stair climber machines come in various forms but they all use the same basic concept — repetitive hip flexion. This flexion works your tensor fascia latae and iliopsoas muscles in a continuous manner. If you’re one of many who have weak hip flexors, you will feel obvious fatigue in the front of your hips after several minutes of stair climbing. With most stair climbers, you simply step onto the machine and begin to climb or push the power button to begin. Adjust the resistance and speed of the machine to match your fitness level.

    Cable Machine

    Cable machines can be used to work the tensor fasciae latae in both flexion and abduction. The resistance provided by a cable machine will significantly strengthen the muscles of your hips. Use the cable machine to abduct your hip by standing with your left side facing the machine. Attach the ankle cuff to your right ankle and transfer your weight to your left leg. Pull against the cable to lift your right leg out to the side as high as possible. Pause at the top of the movement, then carefully lower to the starting position.

    The standing cable raise works your tensor fasicae latae through hip flexion. Begin with your back toward the machine. Attach the ankle cuff to your right ankle, take a step forward with your left foot and transfer your weight to your left leg. Pull against the cable to pull your right knee forward and up until it reaches hip level. Slowly return to the starting position.

    Hip Abductor Machine

    The hip abductor machine comes in two forms: standing and seated. Both types of machines allow you to perform the same exercise. Use this machine to work your tensor fasciae latae and develop your gluteal muscles. To work out on the seated hip abduction machine, sit at the machine with your back snug against the back rest. Adjust the resistance on the machine to your fitness level. Position your legs in the pads and slowly press your legs against the pads to spread them as wide as possible. Pause, then carefully return to the starting position.

    Parallel Bars

    Parallel bars are most often used to work the arms and abdomen but are also great for working the muscles responsible for hip flexion. When you use this machine you can use your own body weight or opt for additional resistance by holding a dumbbell between your feet. Work your tensor fasciae latae by placing your forearms on padded parallel bars. Grasp the handles and press your back into the vertical pad. Begin with your legs hanging straight down. Keeping your legs together, raise your knees as high as possible by flexing your hips. Lower your legs back down until your hips are completely extended.

    New UK BMW

    A Brief history of BMW

    BMW can trace its history all the way back to 1913, when a Bavarian named Karl Rapp started an aircraft-engine shop in Munich named Rapp Motoren Werke. 1916 saw Rapp Motoren Werke securing a contract to supply a large number of V12 aero engines to Austro-Daimler, as a result, Rapp needed to find a backer to finance the companies expansion and the Bayerische Motoren Werke � BMW as we know it � was formed. Unfortunately BMW expanded too quickly and financial difficulties followed leading to Rapp resigning and Franz Josef Popp � a leading industrial tycoon � who laid the foundations for the BMW company that is known today.

    For the next few years BMW concentrated on the manufacture of aircraft engines until in 1919 with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles restrictions were placed on German companies manufacturing parts for the aero industry, as a result, BMW diversified to manufacture components for the rail industry. 1923 saw BMW finally make their first move into the automotive industry with the introduction of the R32, a motorcycle that would go on to hold motorcycle world speed records throughout the 1930’s.

    Buoyed by this success, BMW purchased a small car manufacturer (the Eisenach Vehicle Factory) in 1928 and by the 1930’s had begun production of sports and touring cars. The culmination was the BMW 328 roadster, a car that has been named one of 25 finalists for Car of the Century by a worldwide panel of automotive journalists.

    The Second World War ending saw BMW’s main factories being dismantled by the allies and diversification was once again the name of the game, a brief foray into kitchen and garden equipment followed, with the introduction of a new motorcycle in 1948. The 1950’s saw a move back into the car market, although with no marked success, however with a change of direction that saw BMW concentrating on sports sedans and compact touring cars, the 1960’s saw a an increase in sales that meant BMW was beginning to compete with its rival Mercedes � Benz. Sales peaked in 1986, but with the collapse of the Berlin Wall a whole new marketplace opened up and BMW capitalised and as a result outsold Mercedes for the first time in 1992.

    BMW are now regarded as one of the premium car manufacturers with a combination of outstanding engineering and a fantastic build quality the Bayerische Motoren Werke has come a long way since its humble beginnings all those years ago.

    Executive Function – Self-Regulation #executive #leadership #traits

    #

    Executive Function Self-Regulation

    Watch the Overview Video

    Executive function and self-regulation skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully. Just as an air traffic control system at a busy airport safely manages the arrivals and departures of many aircraft on multiple runways, the brain needs this skill set to filter distractions, prioritize tasks, set and achieve goals, and control impulses.

    When children have opportunities to develop executive function and self-regulation skills, individuals and society experience lifelong benefits. These skills are crucial for learning and development. They also enable positive behavior and allow us to make healthy choices for ourselves and our families.

    Executive function and self-regulation skills depend on three types of brain function: working memory, mental flexibility, and self-control. These functions are highly interrelated, and the successful application of executive function skills requires them to operate in coordination with each other.

    Each type of executive function skill draws on elements of the others.

    • Working memory governs our ability to retain and manipulate distinct pieces of information over short periods of time.
    • Mental flexibility helps us to sustain or shift attention in response to different demands or to apply different rules in different settings.
    • Self-control enables us to set priorities and resist impulsive actions or responses.

    Children aren’t born with these skills—they are born with the potential to develop them. If children do not get what they need from their relationships with adults and the conditions in their environments—or (worse) if those influences are sources of toxic stress —their skill development can be seriously delayed or impaired. Adverse environments resulting from neglect. abuse, and/or violence may expose children to toxic stress, which disrupts brain architecture and impairs the development of executive function.

    By focusing on real-life daily situations such as bedtime and mealtime, the Ready4Routines intervention seeks to strengthen executive function skills in adults and children, while also increasing predictability within young children’s lives.

    Providing the support that children need to build these skills at home, in early care and education programs, and in other settings they experience regularly is one of society’s most important responsibilities. Growth-promoting environments provide children with scaffolding that helps them practice necessary skills before they must perform them alone. Adults can facilitate the development of a child’s executive function skills by establishing routines, modeling social behavior, and creating and maintaining supportive, reliable relationships. It is also important for children to exercise their developing skills through activities that foster creative play and social connection, teach them how to cope with stress, involve vigorous exercise, and over time, provide opportunities for directing their own actions with decreasing adult supervision.

    Facts about Pet Insurance #caps #insurance

    Facts about Pet Insurance

    If you have a dog, cat, or other pet, you probably visit the veterinarian on a fairly regular basis. As those vet’s bills can really add up, a number of companies sell insurance for all types of animals, including dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, exotic birds, reptiles, potbelly pigs and various rodents.

    Pet health insurance policies are similar to human health insurance policies in that they include annual premiums, deductibles, co-pays and caps. Cost of coverage is based typically on the animal’s age, health profile and the level of care you choose. Generally, older animals cost more to cover—and some companies have age limits. Also there may be exclusions for pre-existing conditions, and some insurers will deny coverage to certain breeds that are prone to hereditary conditions (e.g. hip dysplasia).

    There are three types of pet health coverage available.

    These plans are similar to human health insurance policies and are sold by companies licensed and regulated by the states where they do business.

    Traditional health insurance is available in three levels of coverage:

    This is the least expensive option; it provides the lowest reimbursements for procedures, and will help pay for accidental injuries, poisonings and illnesses (including cancer). These policies typically include an annual deductible, caps on reimbursements per accident or illness as well as on total reimbursements per policy term.

    b. Comprehensive Coverage

    This coverage is costlier than Basic, but offers more generous benefits—reimbursements for accidental injuries, emergencies and illnesses, and coverage for office visits, prescriptions, diagnostic tests, X-rays and lab fees. These policies feature lower annual deductibles and cap reimbursements per accident and illness, as well as on total reimbursements for the policy term.

    c. Pet Well Care Protection

    This type of plan reimburses for preventive care, including physical exams, flea and heartworm prevention and vaccinations. While there is no deductible for well care, there is a nominal deductible for other medical services.

    There are two other types of insurance available from veterinarians and other businesses not regulated as insurers: HMO, which offers reduced rates prices on vaccinations, spay/neuters, dental cleaning, routine check-ups, and other services.

    And Discount Plans. which offer savings on a range of products and services—from pet supplies to surgery and hospitalization—but only when purchased from a network of participating vendors.

    Beyond health coverage, there are also other types of insurance protection for pets.

    Life and Theft Insurance

    Life and Theft coverage is designed to insure the lives of highly valuable, and is typically purchased by zoos, and the owners of championship cats, dogs, horses and police dogs. The policy reimburses owners of stolen animals, and pays a death benefit if an animal dies during transport or other covered events.

    Homeowners and Renters Insurance

    Check your homeowners or renters policy to see what coverage they provide for pet owners, including:

    • Liability Protection
    • If your dog bites someone, causing injury, and you are sued, homeowners and renters policies provide liability protection to defend you in court. However, most homeowners insurance policies will exclude any dog with a history of biting and aggressive behavior.

    In addition, types of dogs that have been classified as dangerous breeds are restricted by many homeowner associations—and a growing number of communities require owners of these breeds to carry additional liability coverage.

    Also covered under the personal property section of standard homeowners and renters policies are items that you purchase for your pets. So, if Fido’s favorite cashmere dog coat is stolen or damaged, you’re covered!

    Crime Scene Investigator Careers, Jobs and Degree Information – Criminal Justice

    #

    Criminal Justice USA

    How to Become a Crime Scene Investigator

    Crime scene investigators are forensic technicians and forensic scientists who collect data and evidence from scenes where a crime has taken place. They look for fingerprints and DNA samples and also take photographs of the crime scene. As part of their responsibilities, criminal investigators must write reports and record observations. Sometimes they may be required to draw or recreate scenes as well. Once they have gathered all the information that they need, crime scene investigators usually go on to work in a laboratory, where they analyze evidence and use results from their analyses to help narrow down suspects and criminal methods.

    Minimum Qualifications

    Crime scene investigators should be emotionally strong and prepared to gather evidence from a variety of criminal scenes, including areas where violent crimes have taken place. They should be highly organized with strong communication and writing skills. In addition, they should be comfortable working in laboratories with computers and different types of technology. The most qualified crime scene investigators will have excellent problem-solving skills as well.

    Education Training

    Before candidates can qualify for crime scene investigation positions, they should consider earning a degree. The best degrees for crime scene investigation are bachelor s degrees in forensic sciences or natural sciences. Class work should include mathematics, biology, and classes to develop critical thinking as well as laboratory skills. Students should learn how to write reports and record observations as well. Due to the fact that crime scene investigators work in teams, classes should also include group work and encourage the development of good communication skills. The best crime scene investigation programs will also provide classes in psychology.

    However, earning a degree is not enough to qualify a crime scene investigator for independent responsibilities. All potential crime scene investigators need to be trained. Therefore, many law enforcement agencies have crime scene investigators start their careers as assistants to experienced investigators. While under such an apprenticeship, trainees will learn how to use laboratory equipment and analyze different aspects of a crime scene. In most cases, crime scene investigators will be given an exam before they can qualify for independent work.

    Career Statistics

    As part of the hiring process, crime scene investigators will undergo interviews and background checks. Their skills with laboratory equipment may be assessed as well. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), crime scene investigators also known as forensic science technicians earn around $51,570 annually. The top 10% earns approximately $82,990 yearly, while the bottom 10% earns around $32,900 yearly. Exact salary figures will vary based on experience, education, location, and the employer. The BLS also reports that the field is projected to grow by 19% by 2020.

    What is records management? Definition from #e-discovery #definition

    records management

    Records management (RM) is the supervision and administration of digital or paper records, regardless of format.

    Records management activities include the creation, receipt, maintenance, use and disposal of records. In this context, a record is content that documents a business transaction. Documentation may exist in contracts, memos, paper files, electronic files, reports, emails, videos, instant message logs or database records. Paper records may be stored in physical boxes on-premises or at a storage facility. Digital records may be stored on storage media in-house or in the cloud.

    The goal of records management is to help an organization keep the necessary documentation accessible for both business operations and compliance audits. In some small to mid-sized businesses, spreadsheets are used to track where records are stored, but larger organizations may find records management software suites that are tied to both a taxonomy and a records retention schedule to be more useful. Such software suites may be marketed as enterprise information management (EIM ) products that are capable of helping an organization to manage both records and ordinary content.

    10. Lamborghini Aventador

    What are the fastest automobiles on the planet? CBS Miami took a spin and crunched the numbers for us, producing this list of the slickest speedsters on the road. You may be surprised by some of the names on this list, but one thing that is no surprise is the inclusion of Lamborghini. The venerable Italian carmaker has a reputation for speed, and their Aventador is the best of the bunch. The Lamborghini Aventador can reach a speed of 220 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 secs.

    10. Lamborghini Aventador

    The Lamborghini Aventador can reach a speed of 220 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 secs, according to CBS Miami. In addition to speed, the Aventador was recently named the best luxury car on the market by the high-class lifestyle magazine “The Robb Report.”

    9. Aston Martin one-77

    British automaker Aston Martin is known for its style. But they’re no slouch in the speed department either. The Aston Martin One-77 can reach a speed of 220 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds.

    9. Aston Martin one-77

    Aston Martin One-77 can reach a speed of 220 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds. With 750-horsepower in a V12 engine, it’s no surprise that the One-77 makes it on CBS Miami’s list.

    8. Noble M600

    Another British car designer makes the list in the eighth position. Though perhaps not as famous as Aston Martin, Noble Automotive makes up for their lack or recognition with pure horsepower. The Noble M600, seen here, can reach a speed of 225 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds.

    The Noble M600 can reach a speed of 225 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds, according to CBS Miami. Expensive and exclusive, only fifty M600s see production every year.

    7. Gumpert Apollo

    It was only a matter of time before a German company made the list. Gumpert might not be the first name that comes to mind when thinking about German automakers, but these specialty supercar stylists are the only to make the list. The Gumpert Apollo, seen here, can reach a speed of 225 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.0 seconds.

    7. Gumpert Apollo

    The Gumpert Apollo can reach a speed of 225 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.0 seconds, according to CBS Miami.

    Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur is the official name for the carmaker. As you can probably guess, they are dedicated to manufacturing sports cars.

    6. Zenvo ST1

    One doesn’t usually think of Scandinavia when talking about high-performance driving machines. But getting through this list may change your mind. Hailing from Denmark is the Zenvo ST1. The Zenvo ST1 can reach a speed of 233 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds.

    6. Zenvo ST1

    The Zenvo ST1 can reach a speed of 233 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds, according to CBS Miami. It’s one of the fastest cars in the world. But is it even the fastest car in Scandinavia?

    5. Koenigsegg CCX

    Just a short hop north from Zenvo is the Swedish manufacturer Koenigsegg. These carmakers deal only in hyper-fast, hyper-expensive speed machines.The Koenigsegg CCX can reach a speed of 245 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds.

    5. Koenigsegg CCX

    The Koenigsegg CCX can reach a speed of 245 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds. Expect to pay the price for all this speed. Koenigsegg supercars are some of the most expensive in the world.

    4. 9ff GT9-R

    One way to make a super-fast car is to take one that’s already zippy and improve on it. The Porsche 911 is a classic example of speed and style. German car tuning company 9ff took a 911 and made it even faster. The 9ff GT9-R can reach a speed of 257 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds.

    4. 9ff GT9-R

    The 9ff GT9-R can reach a speed of 257 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds, according to CBS Miami. One sure way to increase speed is to reduce weight. The GT9-R looks like a million bucks on the outside, but with all the amenities stripped from the interior you may be in for a bumpy ride.

    3. Koenigsegg Agera R

    Koenigsegg against makes the list with another super-charged supercar. The Koenigsegg Agera R can reach a speed of 260 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds.

    3. Koenigsegg Agera R

    The Koenigsegg Agera R can reach a speed of 260 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds. The Agera pumps out over 900 horsepower, and its carbon fiber body makes it lightweight, aerodynamic and very pretty to look at.

    2. Hennessey Venom GT

    Another example of taking something that works and making it better. Houston, Texas-based car tuners Hennessey Performance Engineering took a (heavily modified) Lotus Exige chassis, threw in a (heavily modified) Corvette engine, and kept tweaking until they had the Venom GT. The Hennessey Venom GT can reach a speed of 260 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds.

    2. Hennessey Venom GT

    The Hennessey Venom GT can reach a speed of 260 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds, according to CBS Miami. These cars can fly, but are they worth the wait? Only ten Venom GTs see production every year, so you’ll have to sign up soon to lock down your next supercar.

    Credit: Joe Windsor-Williams/VenomGT.com

    1. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

    We finish the list where we started: Italy. Bugatti is a brand synonymous with speed and style (and price). The fastest car in the world, Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, can reach a speed of 267 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.4 seconds.

    Credit: Feng Li/Getty Images

    1. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

    The fastest car in the world, Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, can reach a speed of 267 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.4 seconds. The Bugatti Veyron tops lists wherever it goes. It comes in a variety of styles, but it’s only the Super Sport (which, as its name suggests, is built for pure speed) which makes in on CBS Miami’s list of the ten fastest cars in the world.

    “The new self check-in kiosk at Lakeside has been a very positive addition to clinic operations. We have received excellent feedback from both patients and staff. Patients are happy because it is a simple interface that rapidly, accurately and privately accomplishes the check-in routine. The staff are happy as it has unloaded a large portion of one of their most time consuming tasks, allowing them the ability to devote more time to the complex tasks that are not so easily automated. We have been pleasantly surprised by everyone’s acceptance of this added functionality”

    – Dr. Bill Haver, Managing Partner, Lakeside Medical Clinic

    “While there are still people who appreciate registering in person with a receptionist, a high volume of patients are very enthusiastic about the convenience and ease of using the kiosk. The touch screen terminal is so user-friendly, patients of all ages seem very comfortable with it”

    – Warner Kabatoff, General Manager, Lakeside Medical Clinic

    “Moving from one software to another is a big deal. However once we saw the power of Accuro, the vote was unanimous. Each Physician could see that the future benefits of this system were going to be huge!”

    – Tom Malone, Chief Executive Officer, Winnipeg Clinic

    “I knew that implementing Accuro EMR across the community would not only facilitate efficiency of workflow, but would allow physicians to make informed decisions based on the bigger picture. With a tailored system, enabling physicians to take control of the system, we now have total care over each and every one of our patients”

    – Dr. Harold Nyhof, Vice President, Medical Services, North Eastman Health Association (NEHA)

    “As one of the physicians in the largest and busiest clinic in Nova Scotia, with over 15 years of experience on an EMR, I was naturally very cautious about switching to another EMR platform. I was very impressed with our transition to QHR’s Accuro EMR and very relieved that what QHR promised, they delivered. QHR was able to completely import my 15 years of electronic data in a very structured format. I have been very pleased with the transition and the interfaces with the lab and diagnostic imaging which were created. I WOULD NOT HESITATE TO RECOMMEND ACCURO.”

    – Dr. Robert Oliver, Woodlawn Medical Clinic, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

    Litman Gregory Masters Funds

    *Sharpe Ratio is measure of a fund’s return relative to its risk. The Sharpe ratio uses standard deviation to measure a fund’s risk-adjusted returns. The higher a fund’s Sharpe ratio, the better a fund’s returns have been relative to the risk it has taken on. Because it uses standard deviation, the Sharpe ratio can be used to compare risk-adjusted returns across all fund categories.

    Performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance of the funds may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. To obtain standardized performance, please clickHERE

    Litman Gregory Masters Funds investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses must be considered carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and other important information about the investment company, and it may be obtained by clicking here or a free hard copy is available by calling 1-800-960-0188. Read it carefully before investing.

    Each of the funds may invest in foreign securities. Investing in foreign securities exposes investors to economic, political, and market risks and fluctuations in foreign currencies. Each of the funds may invest in the securities of small companies. Small-company investing subjects investors to additional risks, including security price volatility and less liquidity than investing in larger companies.

    The International Fund will invest in emerging markets. Investments in emerging market countries involve additional risks such as government dependence on a few industries or resources, government-imposed taxes on foreign investment or limits on the removal of capital from a country, unstable government, and volatile markets.

    Investments in debt securities typically decrease when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investments in mortgage-backed securities include additional risks that investor should be aware of including credit risk, prepayment risk, possible illiquidity, and default, as well as increased susceptibility to adverse economic developments. Investments in lower-rated and non-rated securities present a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks such as liquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management, and the risk that a position could not be closed when most advantageous. Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested.The Alternative Strategies Fund may make short sales of securities, which involves the risk that losses may exceed the original amount invested.

    Investment in absolute return strategies are not intended to outperform stocks and bonds during strong market rallies.

    Merger arbitrage investments risk loss if a proposed reorganization in which the fund invests is renegotiated or terminated.

    Leverage may cause the effect of an increase or decrease in the value of the portfolio securities to be magnified and the fund to be more volatile than if leverage was not used.

    i – The Morningstar Rating for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed products monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10 year overall rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. Litman Gregory Masters Alternative Strategies Fund was rated against the following numbers of Multialternative funds over the following time periods as of 6/30/2017: 243 funds in the last three years, and 154 funds in the last five years. With respect to these Multialternative funds, Litman Gregory Masters Alternative Strategies (MASFX) received a Morningstar Rating of 5 stars and 5 stars for the three- and five-year periods, respectively. Ratings for other share classes may be different. Morningstar rating is for the Institutional share class only; other classes may have different performance characteristics. The Investor share class received a 5-star rating for the Overall and 5-year period, and a 4-star rating for the 3-year period.

    Diversification does not assure a profit nor protect against loss in a declining market.

    While the funds are no-load, management fees and other expenses will apply. Please refer to the prospectus for further details.

    Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible.

    Multi-investment management styles may lead to higher transaction expenses compared to single investment management styles. Outcomes depend on the skill of the sub-advisors and advisor and the allocation of assets amongst them.

    How to save on flights: 11 ways to find the best

    #great flight deals
    #

    11 Ideas for How To Save on Flights

    I’ve always heard conflicting advice on paying  for a flight. Some swear you need to book as early as possible to get the best price, while others say last-minute deals are the best bargain. Even though this remains unpredictable, there are still great ways you can save on airfare. When you are booking your next flight, keep these eight money-saving tips in mind to get the best price for airfare:

    Shop midweek.

    Just like there are certain days at the grocery store that always seem to have a bargain, you’ll see the same is true with with airlines. Many airlines release sales on Tuesdays and Wednesdays since they are the least popular days of the week people are shopping for flights. “Monday night is when the major airlines announce sales. This triggers airlines to try to match those sales on Tuesday,” Rick Seaney, CEO and co-founder of FareCompare.com says. Once one airline posts deals, others will do the same to compete. Scope the scene Tuesday afternoon for a low ticket price.

    According to Susanna Zaraysky, author of Travel Happy, Budget Low. if your departure or return dates are flexible, use airfare search engines to play around with various dates to get affordable tickets. If you can be flexible with the dates and time you travel, it is a huge advantage to saving money on flights. Sometimes booking a day later, or even an hour later, can end up saving you a great deal. Search various dates and times you are available to travel. Some airlines, like Southwest, offer an entire calendar to make it easy to spot when the best time to fly is. Flexibility also comes into play if you don’t mind getting a connecting flight, since many people are so opposed to the idea.

    Be a nanny on flight seriously.

    If you have any childcare experience, sign up to be a nanny on your flight. Parents sign up at Nanny in the Clouds if they need assistance caring for their child or children while checking bags, getting settled, and in the air flying. For you, simply type in your flight information and see if there are parents in need of an extra hand. From there, you set your wage and literally get paid while you fly.

    Choose another airport.

    The same way you are flexible with when you travel should also be applied to where you are traveling to and from. Sometimes choosing a different airport can end up saving hundreds of dollars and be well-worth traveling the extra distance. I had relatives coming to visit me in Chicago that flew into an airport one hour south of me to save several hundred dollars. Since they were renting a car anyway, the money they spent on gas and the time were worth it.

    Check deal sites AND airline websites.

    Standby websites like Orbitz  and CheapTickets.com  (and a host of others) offer an overview of what the lowest prices are out there. This is a great start, but a big mistake that people make is not looking at the airline’s actual website too. Airlines want you to book through their site, so they often offer a deal that the travel search sites don’t know about. Also keep in mind that many airline rewards are only offered if you book through their website.

    Get the package deal.

    The interesting thing about the search sites mentioned above, is they allow you to book your hotel stay and book your rental car as well as a flight. Booking things together in a package can easily add up to a discount. Sometimes, you don t even have to do it at the same time. For example, CheapTickets.com offers users booking a flight a promo code good for a 15 percent discount on your hotel. That said, shop around and price each item separately to see if you are truly getting a deal.

    Keep an eye out on for a lower price.

    You’re excited for your trip, you find a good deal and book your tickets, and you anxiously await take off. But do you ever check back to see if the price went down? I’ll admit that I used to never check back, until I found one day that the price had significantly dropped. Once you book your ticket, watch for the price to go down. If it does, contact the airline to see if they will give you a refund or credit for the difference.

    Book a red eye flight or flight with stops.

    It may be late, but booking a red eye flight is most likely going to be significantly cheaper. And on that same page, flights with multiple stops will cost less. Sure, it is much more convenient for a nonstop flight, but if you can save hundreds of dollars, it could be well worth the trouble.

    Watch for hidden fees.

    The best way to save money is to know what you are actually spending. You might see a good deal, but with hidden fees, it can turn out to be much more expensive than you think. Some things you can be charged for include: checking bags, booking fees, food and drink on flight, boarding early, or premium seating. Find out what is included and not included before you book. Also, find out the airline’s policy on changing flights. Some airlines can charge a change fee of $170 plus your new flight’s difference if you need to change your flight.

    Keep an eye out for sales and promotions.

    Airlines are always offering deals, sales, and other promotions throughout the year, especially during off-travel times. Sign up for airline e-mails to hear about these money-saving offers and receive coupons or promo codes. Also, follow airlines on Twitter and Facebook to hear about deals as well.

    Use a credit card to your advantage.

    Using a credit card in a smart way can score you free flights or reduced airfare when you fly. If you’re in the market for a new credit card, consider applying for one through an airline. They’ll offer free flights or a ton of bonus points. Plus, when you use your card, it results in points toward free flights.

    How do you find inexpensive flights?

    Holiday Travel Tips for Safe Holiday Travel

    The holidays are steeped in family traditions – opening presents at first light on Christmas Day, napping during the football game on Thanksgiving, lighting the menorah during Hanukkah, inching the car through a traffic jam on the interstate and standing in an airport line that just doesn’t move.

    holiday travel

    happiness and minimize coal-in-the-stocking grief, follow these helpful

    holiday travel tips

    compiled by ASTA (American Society of Travel Agents). Some of the most travel-wise people in the world, ASTA members know the secrets that will help you and your family arrive at Grandma’s house full of holiday cheer.

    ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas – Before the Holiday Travel Begins

    Contact a travel agent well in advance of your trip to secure the lowest-priced airline seats, hotel rooms and rental cars that usually sell out quickly for holiday travel. Be aware that prices generally escalate during the holiday season, as demand is higher.

    Packing light saves time and energy when it comes to filling the trunk with fragile bags packed with gifts or racing to fill the last empty space in the overhead bin. Some airlines place special restrictions during the holidays and allow only one carry-on, so less luggage is vital. For detailed tips on how to pack wisely, click here .

    One

    holiday travel tip

    for packing lighter is to ship your gifts to your destination ahead of time. Allow at least two to three weeks for your package to arrive, for the holidays are hectic times for courier services like UPS and Federal Express.

    Before leaving, be sure to secure your house. Lock all doors and windows, and don’t forget to set the alarm. Also, give your home that lived-in look to repel potential burglars by having a friend collect your mail, setting lights on timers and not leaving details of your trip on the answering machine.

    Now Dasher, Now Dancer – Flying During the Holidays

    Without a sleigh and eight reindeer, your holiday travel plans will most likely bring you, and millions of others, to the airport. But fear not – with a few precautions and a little TravelSense, your pre-flight schedule will be absent of anxiety.

    First, avoid peak travel days. As your travel agent will tell you, the busiest days to fly are those immediately before and after the actual holidays. Book your flights two days before and after Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s.

    Your travel agent can secure you a non-stop flight, or one involving the fewest connections and stops. Every time your plane touches the ground during peak travel times, the possibility of delays due to inclement weather or air-traffic problems increases. Also, aim to book morning flights, which tend to be delayed less often than afternoon departures.

    If possible, have a friend drive you to the airport, or take a shuttle or public transportation. Shuttle services generally pick up guests early to ensure a timely arrival. If you drive and park at the airport lot, do not leave any valuables, such as CDs, or GPSs in plain view. Also remember to put jumper cables in the trunk in case the battery dies during your trip.

    Take the worry of getting to the airport completely out of the equation by staying at an airport hotel the night before an early flight. The additional sleep is well worth it. In some cases, hotels will allow guests to leave their car in the hotel lot for the duration of their trip, so make a few calls to discover which hotels offer this valuable service.

    As flights are sometimes overbooked during the holidays, it’s critical to check in early. Domestic travelers should arrive at the airport two hours prior to departure, while international travelers should arrive three hours in advance. Spending an idle hour in the gift shop is much more fun than missing your flight by ten minutes.

    If you do not send your gifts ahead, then do not wrap them before the flight. With safety a priority for all airlines, security personnel will need access to all items. Pack collapsible gift bags to be used as wrapping upon arrival.

    Keep a positive attitude, but also be mentally ready for setbacks. Delays happen, and airlines do the best they can to keep their schedules on time. Bring water and snacks, an inflatable pillow and eye mask, a good book, your favorite CDs, MP3 player and a deck of cards. Boredom is the true enemy in these situations, so be prepared to conquer it!

    Turkeys Can’t Fly – Holiday driving Tips for Navigating the Open Road

    Most Americans tend not to stray too far from their family’s roots, making long drives on the interstate an integral part of the holiday ritual.

    The first step to ensure a smooth car trip is to keep your car in good working order. As temperatures drop during November and December, being stuck on the side of the road while waiting for an overworked tow-truck driver is not the place to be. Before you leave, have a qualified mechanic check all the car’s vitals: brakes, battery, fluid levels, tire pressure, light bulbs and any parts that need regular maintenance.

    As with all long-distance winter road trips, it’s wise to bring emergency equipment, such as a first-aid kit, flashlight, blankets, drinking water and snacks, along with flares and jumper cables. An ice scraper and chains for the tires will also come in handy. While a white Christmas is great for the memories, it’s not ideal for winter driving conditions.

    Pad your schedule to allow plenty of time for the drive. Like shopping malls, the roads are busiest on the days right before and after the major holidays. If possible, take an extra day off to reduce the chances of being lodged in a traffic jam.

    Once on the road, drive carefully, patiently and stifle any burgeoning impulses of road rage. Try not to view other cars and traffic signals as personal obstacles. Work with your fellow drivers and not against them. Indicate during lane changes and give everyone plenty of room. Also, be forgiving when someone demonstrates reckless driving.

    Don’t leave valuables in your car. Pack all items, especially brightly wrapped packages, in the trunk. If afraid of squashed bows, wait until you arrive to wrap the gifts.

    Overall, try to make driving fun, and view it as part of the holiday, not as a chore. If traveling with children, get everyone involved by singing or reminiscing about favorite past holidays. The ride will be over before you know it, and you’ll actually look forward to the drive back home.

    Giving Thanks – Arriving Safely Is Thanks Enough

    If Santa can travel safely year in and year out, so can you and your family. Just remember these tips from the friendly travel agents at ASTA. With a little TravelSense, everyone will be home for the holidays with warm memories to share.

    Holiday rep job description

    %img src=”http://www.totaljobs.com/careers-advice/job-profile/travel-leisure-jobs/%3C/p%3E%0D%0A%3Cp%3E/media/tj/jobseekers/careers-advice/inflatable-ball.ashx” /%

    So, what will I actually be doing?

    Tour operators require reps to work throughout the summer and winter seasons to ensure that holiday makers have an enjoyable trip. You’re the first point of contact for customers so be prepared to answer questions and resolve problems.

    Your day will usually start with meeting the excited new arrivals at the airport and overseeing transfers to their accommodation. From there your duties may include:

    • Giving an introductory talk on the facilities and the area
    • Accompanying holidaymakers on excursions
    • Helping to arrange entertainment
    • Completing paperwork (yes, even reps have admin )

    Of course, holidays rarely run completely smoothly and you may need to deal with unexpected dilemmas from lost passports to medical emergencies, so be prepared to deal with anything.

    %img src=”http://www.totaljobs.com/careers-advice/job-profile/travel-leisure-jobs/%3C/p%3E%0D%0A%3Cp%3E/media/tj/job-descriptions/search_for_jobs_like_this.ashx?w=508 h=98 as=1″ /%

    Find holiday jobs now

    See all of our current holiday vacancies or sign up to have new holiday jobs emailed directly to you.

    The finer details.

    The summer season runs from April to September and the winter season (ski reps) work October to December. And it’s not as easy as it looks, definitely not a nine to five position, you’ll be on the go for 12 hours a day, six days a week.

    So what can you do when the holiday season is over? People who love working as a holiday rep can progress to becoming team leaders or resort managers. Others find work as a travel agent or tour guide. The skills you learn as a holiday rep (customer service. time management, events organising) are transferable to many other careers so it looks great on your CV .

    Money, money, money

    Newcomers will earn about £450 to £500 per month while more experienced reps can earn up to £800 per month. But there are plenty of bonuses including:

    • Free accommodation
    • Reduced or free meals at the hotel
    • Free flights to and from your location
    • Reduced holiday costs from the tour operator

    The good points.

    “Being your own boss while in a lovely destination and helping clients to get the most out of their holiday. Clients are generally very grateful for any help you can offer, from taking them to hospital if a child has had an accident to pointing them in the direction of the best beaches and good restaurants,” say the reps at Sunvil Holidays.

    If that wasn’t enough, you’ll have the chance to learn a new language, meet a range of different people and, as entry requirements are very flexible, gain valuable work experience. what’s not to love?

    and the bad

    “Flight problems and delays. There is so little that you can do and the airport very quickly becomes a very unpleasant place to be. Trying to get accurate information for your clients is a nightmare!”

    If you’ve ever gone away and seen the reps leading a pub crawl, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was all sunbathing and partying, but it you’d be wrong, it’s as much hard work as it is fun.

    Is there study involved?

    There are no set requirements to become a holiday rep but many tour operators are looking for four GCSEs (grade C or above) and experience working in customer care. You also need to be aged 18 plus (sometimes this can be 21 and over).

    Applicants with.

    • A qualification in the industry (such as a BTEC Diploma in travel and tourism)
    • A working knowledge of one or more foreign languages
    • Administrative experience

    . will find themselves a step ahead of the rest. A qualification in childcare is essential for anyone wanting to work as a children’s rep running holiday clubs.

    Once your application has been successful you’ll need to complete an intense 2 to 4-week induction course run by the tour operator. The course will cover subjects such as health and safety, dealing with customer complaints, organising excursions and exchange rates.

    OK, I’m interested. But is it really the job for me?

    Anyone with a love of travel, bags of energy. plenty of initiative, polished customer service skills and lots of patience will make a first-class holiday rep.

    Vaccines and Medicines

    You should be up to date on routine vaccinations while traveling to any destination. Some vaccines may also be required for travel.

    Get travel vaccines and medicines because there is a risk of these diseases in the country you are visiting.

    Ask your doctor what vaccines and medicines you need based on where you are going, how long you are staying, what you will be doing, and if you are traveling from a country other than the US.

    You can get hepatitis B through sexual contact, contaminated needles, and blood products, so CDC recommends this vaccine if you might have sex with a new partner, get a tattoo or piercing, or have any medical procedures.

    • Travelers involved in outdoor and other activities in remote areas that put them at risk for animal bites (such as adventure travel and caving).
    • People who will be working with or around animals (such as veterinarians, wildlife professionals, and researchers).
    • People who are taking long trips or moving to remote areas in Puerto Rico
    • Children, because they tend to play with animals, might not report bites, and are more likely to have animal bites on their head and neck.

    How to Score Cheap Airline Tickets. #travel #info

    #search for cheap airline tickets
    #

    How to Score Cheap Airline Tickets

    Instructions

    Start your search for cheap airline tickets 4 months before your trip IF AT ALL POSSIBLE. Experts believe the airlines start to tighten up their schedules at this time, attempting to get the most seats sold. Clearly, waiting to buy airline tickets 14 days or fewer before the flight is a bad idea because fares will be steep. Airlines know last minute flyers are their bread and butter, and they’ll always be around bringing in the big bucks.

    Visit the popular travel discount web sites like Priceline, Orbitz, Expedia, and the popularly named Cheaptickets. Just remember, once you purchase an airline ticket on one of these sites, good luck making a change on it without incurring a hefty surcharge. These sites used to be the one stop shop for airfare, but they’ve stopped offering the deep discounts of the past. A stop on these sites is worth your time, however, in case they have some type of special running.

    Go to the individual airline web sites. Most of the airlines are desperate – some are even filing Chapter 11, while others are barely making it month to month. The airlines want your business, and they’d rather have fliers come straight to them, instead of hiting the discounters first, so they are offering the lowest and best prices directly on their web sites. In addition, you are in a better position to change your flight for a minimal fee if you buy directly through the airline. In fact, Southwest charges nothing! (As an aside, many hotels are doing this as well.)

    Search the airline sites on the weekend. In general, airlines tend to update their site content multiple times during the week, but only once per day on weekends, and many times sales show up on Friday nights. If you search early Saturday morning, you’ll find that elusive deal you’ve been searching for.

    When searching, leave the dates you want to fly flexible. Of course, your dates are probably NOT flexible, but you need to do this so you can see the lowest fares possible. You will waste time if you’ve already found the rock bottom price, yet you continue searching and searching.

    Pick a flight that leaves on a Tuesday or Wednesday. Also, make sure you extend your stay long enough that you are at your destination overnight on a Saturday. This one change to your trip can save you mega cash on airline tickets.

    If nothing seems to turn up a cheap airline ticket, speak to a travel agent. Many times, they can drum up a deal that the average joe can’t even get near. As a plus, they are lightening fast – travel agents know the airfare system since they deal with it daily. Use this valuable resource to your advantage.

    Health Insurance for Travel to Canada

    Protect your health and your wallet with travel insurance. (Photo: Travel documents image by Nikolay Okhitin from Fotolia.com )

    Related Articles

    Your U.S. health insurance policy will most likely not cover you if you are traveling in Canada. The chance that you might need medical assistance while you are on vacation or on business travel to Canada is a lot higher than you might think. As much as 50 percent of those traveling to other countries will need to seek health care that is not covered by their home health insurance policy.

    Why Consider Travel Health Insurance

    Whether you travel frequently or just one time to Canada, you will want to explore the concept of obtaining health insurance that will cover you and your family members while you are traveling. Not only will you be protected if any unexpected medical issues arise, you will also have a helping hand to assist you with choosing a good provider in the unfamiliar area that you are traveling to in Canada. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, car crashes are the number one reason people need to go to the hospital while they are visiting Canada. If you have traveler s medical insurance, you can focus on getting the medical attention that you need in this or other emergencies, instead of worrying about the bills that you are incurring.

    Canada s Health System

    Canada has a public health care system called Medicare. It offers free essential medical services for all Canadian citizens and permanent residents. If you are planning to become a legal resident of Canada, you will only need traveler s health insurance until you qualify for Medicare. In British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, and New Brunswick you have to wait three months from the time you apply for Medicare for your coverage to begin. In the other provinces your coverage begins as soon as you apply.

    Choices

    If you are not eligible for Medicare, you will have to pay out of pocket for all medical expenses unless you have purchased traveler s health insurance. You will have several choices regarding traveler s health insurance plans, depending on your specific needs. You can purchase a short-term plan or a long-term plan, depending on the length of your trip. You can choose a plan with a high deductible or a low deductible, and you will be able to elect extra travel benefits as well with most plans.

    Although rabies can be found in bats and other mammals in Costa Rica, it is not a major risk to most travelers. CDC recommends rabies vaccine for only these groups:

    • Travelers involved in outdoor and other activities in remote areas that put them at risk for bat bites or other animal bites (such as adventure travel and caving).
    • People who will be working with or around animals (such as wildlife professionals and researchers).

    There is no risk of yellow fever in Costa Rica. The government of Costa Rica requires proof of yellow fever vaccination only if you are arriving from a country with risk of yellow fever. This does not include the US. If you are traveling from a country other than the US, check this list to see if you may be required to get the yellow fever vaccine: Countries with risk of yellow fever virus (YFV) transmission .

    For more information on recommendations and requirements, see yellow fever recommendations and requirements for Costa Rica. Your doctor can help you decide if this vaccine is right for you based on your travel plans.

    Heena Tours and Travels Incompetent staff

    I and my friend had visited Heena tours and travels office to inquire about their ladakh trip on 10th July. We were told that there were 3 people scheduled for 7 august. We spoke to the gentleman over there and after confirming that they will organise the tip for us even if we are two people. After getting all the dates verified by them we booked our airline tickets from mumbai to leh and back.

    When we went to pay the tour cost at their ghatkopar branch we were told that the tour had been cancelled. At first they refused to make travelling arrangements for us. However after some haggling they did agree.

    Just two days before only when we inquired about our travel arrangements they said that they would be unable to make the arrangements for us.

    My friend and I have suffered a huge loss because of them as we had to cancel our airline tickets. They had also deposited our cheque which was cleared by the bank. They provided a lame excuse that there is curfew in Ladakh. Every one knows that inspite of the upheaveal in Kashmir Ladakh never has a curfew. We called up the hotels over there and had inquired. Though they returned the money. we had to suffer a huge loss due to the cancellation of the air tickets.

    I would not recommend anyone to travel by heena tours and Travels. They have a very incompetent staff who are not aware about the tours being conducted. They just know how to provide lame excuses and to pull wool over people s eyes.
