Guide to low-cost airlines in Europe. #gullivers #travel

#low cost travel

Guide to low-cost airlines in Europe

In the past few years, the travel game has changed drastically.

Where travelling by plane used to be an expensive mode of transport that could only be afforded by the rich, the rise in low-cost airlines means that nowadays it can be one of the cheapest ways to get around. Budget airlines offer cheap flights between European (and more recently, further afield) cities – these flights are usually found for under £200 return, but it s not unheard of to get flights for under £30 return. Demand for cheap airfare has not only caused a dramatic increase in low-cost airlines, with new airlines coming into existence yearly, but has also meant that more and more destinations within Europe are being served – these days, it is often cheaper to fly between European destinations than it would be to get a train or bus! Crazy, right?!

Asides from the budget airline giants like Ryanair and easyJet, who have varied and growing flight routes that serve almost every major European city, most budget airlines operate between several specific regions. Smaller airlines may only have flights that fly between international hubs and key cities in their home country, and some airlines may specialise in flights between certain countries. For example, Hungarian airline Wizz Air connects Western European cities to several key areas of Eastern Europe, such as the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Serbia, Lithuania, Bulgaria and Romania.

Currently, there are around 37 low-cost airlines operating, although turnover is fast and new companies are coming onto the scene yearly.


Unlike more traditional air carriers, low-cost airlines are often thought to deliver no-frills service – with low cost airlines, you really do get what you pay for, and anything more than the flight will cost you. Expect to pay for:

•  Food and drink

Often far more expensive than even airport food, so it is a good idea to bring food with you.

•  Check in bags

Most airlines allow passengers to carry hand luggage up to 10kg for free (check sizing policies), but charge to store luggage in the hold. One 15kg bag could cost you from £15-30, and sports equiptment and pushchairs are always more expensive to transport.NOTE: it is a lot cheaper to buy check in luggage online than it is to do so at the airport. Also be aware that most airlines charge for overweight luggage – don t underestimate the weight of your bag, or you will pay a hefty fine.

• Tax. as decided by the government.

• Seat allocation – seats aren t allocated on low cost airlines, so if you want to ensure you sit by your partner or friend, it will cost you around £5 to reserve a seat.

• Admin fees. as charged by the airlines (easyJet currently charge £12 per transaction)

• Check-in fee

Whilst online check-in is free with most budget airlines, forget to do this and you will face a whopping fee at the check-in desk (up to £140!), so don t forget to check-in online before your flight!

•Boarding card fee

Most airlines will allow you the option of printing your boarding card yourself (usually an A4 printout). Don t forget, as replacing the ticket the desk can cost as much as £20. However, some airlines are ticketless, and only require a confirmation number and passport, so do check before you fly.

• Credit card fee

It is cheaper to buy your tickets with a debit card, as booking with a credit card currently carries around a 2% fee. However, booking with a credit card is safer – if you spend more than £100 and something goes wrong with the flight, the credit card company and airline are jointly liable.

A lot of low-cost airlines will also try to sell you travel insurance, car hire and hotel bookings, so check your bill before you pay to avoid any unwanted expenditure!

• Travelling with a baby

Some airlines charge a fee for travelling with an infant on your lap. Check with the airline to avoid any nasty surprises.

Although the hidden costs of low-cost airlines can be extensive and off-putting, flights are still cheap even with added costs and fees. Flights are generally relatively well-run and, although quite basic, value for money. When booked tactically, flights can cost as little as £15 one way, including fees.

Flight comparison websites such as Skyscanner and Momondo are a great way to compare the cost of rival airlines.

Some more tips for getting cheap flights

•Flying midweek is often cheaper than weekends

•Flying early in the morning or late at night is also often cheaper

•Avoiding high season (public holidays, summer and winter) can save money

•Lots of airlines have online flash sales and sell advance flights for cheap

•Booking in advance is always cheaper

•Following competition from budget airlines, traditional airlines have reduced their fares and sometimes offer sales on flights – keeping an eye on their prices is always a good idea, as their prices are occasionally only marginally more expensive than budget airlines.

•If there are no cheap fares for your preferred destination, get creative and look at cheaper nearby airports. For example, a flight from London Stanstead to tourist hotspot Krakow can be pricey (around £300), but a flight to Katowice (under 2 hours away from Krakow by bus) can cost almost £120 less. A pre-booked transfer from Katowice to Krakow can cost as little as £15 per person – booking tactically can save you money. London itself has three hubs for 3 low-cost airlines Stansted, Luton and Gatwick with coach transfers possible between all three so keep that in mind.

Other things to watch out for on low-cost airlines

•Flights schedules are often tightly packed, so expect domino effect delays if one flight is late. Most budget airlines are point to point and often have a questionable policy regarding refunding delayed or cancelled flights (i.e they won t) so check before you book.

•Leave enough time between connecting flights, as budget airlines will rarely transfer your luggage from plane to plane- you often have to collect your own luggage and check it in again.

•Budget airlines often use secondary airports to keep prices low. These airports are often found in obscure locations, far away from the city they are meant to be in. For example, if you book a low-cost flight to Paris, don t assume that the flight will land in the well known Charles de Gaulle or Orly airport – most budget carriers actually use Paris Beauvais Airport, which is a good 90 km out of the city itself! Although these secondary airports do offer transportation to the city centre, this can often be costly so it is a good idea to organise transport to the city before you fly, or risk losing the initial saving you made on your air fare.

Gordon Ramsay travels to India in TLC’s new show

MUMBAI: Lifestyle channel TLC is all set to present the culinary discovery of India by Chef Gordon Ramsay in the new series ‘Gordon’s Great Escape’. The series will showcase Gordon travelling in search of Indian flavours, discovering authentic food from the most jaw-dropping locations across the country.

Gordon will explore the diversity of Indian food, starting his journey in the capital Delhi and moving on to exciting locations including Kolkata, Kerala and Northeast India, and ending his journey in bustling Mumbai.

Kicking off on 31 January, the show will air every Saturday at 10 pm on TLC.

As Gordon samples a variety of Indian delicacies, he will immerse himself in local traditions and activities such as bullock racing in Kerala, hunting deer in Nagaland and assisting a master chef in Lucknow to help prepare a wedding feast.

Discovery executive VP, GM South Asia, South East Asia Rahul Johri said, “TLC continues to present the world of ultimate lifestyle experiences to Indian audience with its varied, distinct and quintessential programming. Gordon Ramsay is an iconic host loved by viewers for his unique personality and style. We are delighted to present his first ever culinary expedition in the new series Gordon’s Great Escape on TLC.”

Viewers can watch Ramsay doing what he loves the most, seeking out the best food in India and testing himself in extreme and demanding situations. His appetite for adventure will take him across the country on his ‘great escape’.

Some of Gordon Ramsay’s India culinary experiences include the following:

Northern India: He travels around Northern India to look for more authentic versions of the popular Indian dishes he grew up with. At the end, he has to prove he has learned how to cook some authentic Indian food in front of food experts in New Delhi.

Kolkata: Gordon demonstrates his curiosity about Indian cuisines that are not normally represented in UK restaurants, so he will travel to remote Northeast India to search them out, and will open a food cart in Kolkata for a day to prove he has learned something.

Southern India: He will travel to Southern India to learn more about vegetarian cooking and Indian fish dishes. He will cook Sambhar with a street chef and put on a fancy dinner for the upper crust of Mumbai.

Licensed, Bonded, and Insured – What Does That Really Mean? #what


Licensed, Bonded & Insured – What Does That Really Mean?

The old saying, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is,” can be especially true when hiring a contractor. Competition is fierce in the construction business and the consumer is in a good position to demand quality work at a fair price. But skimping on credentials is not the best way to get a job done cheaply. Hiring a contractor that is not licensed, bonded, and insured places the consumer at significant risk and can cost thousands more in the long run.

So what exactly does it mean to hire a licensed, bonded, and insured contractor?

LICENSED – The Washington State Department of Labor & Industries requires contractors be licensed as either a general contractor or a specialty contractor, like drywall or painting. Licensed electricians, plumbers, elevator mechanics, and manufactured home installers require special certification, in addition to a license. The contractor’s license number must be posted on any marketing materials such as their website, business card, or print advertising. Anyone can visit the Department of Labor & Industries website and search for a contractor by name or license number. This search will tell you if their license and insurance premiums are current and if they have any judgments against them, as well as a lot of other information. Once licensed the contractor is bound to comply with state building procedures and standards. If a property owner hires a contractor that is not licensed, they may not be protected by state policies. There is often very little that can be done if an unlicensed contractor disappears from a partially completed job or does a job incorrectly. News stories are seen regularly of contractors disappearing with deposits or full payment in some cases, botched jobs requiring even more money to re-do them correctly, and sometimes much worse. In a down economy such as we are experiencing, many contractors have been forced for monetary reasons to let their license lapse. Construction companies have laid off many of their crew. These circumstances have resulted in many unlicensed contractors and construction crew willing to work for less and to be paid in cash.

BONDED – Contractors licensed in Washington State must be bonded. A bond is essentially a pre-paid savings account with a bank or insurance company that sets money aside in the event a project is not completed according to the contract between the property owner and the contractor. This bond or agreement, binds the contractor to the contract with the property owner. If the work is not completed according to the contract the bond will cover any expenses (up to the bond amount) required to complete the job satisfactorily. General contractors are required to hold a $12,000 bond and specialty contractors a $6,000 bond. If the project is expected to exceed these amounts, the property owner can ask the contractor to post a performance bond . A performance bond covers the full cost of the project and guarantees the property owner compensation for any monetary losses if the job is not completed according to contract. Only the property owner can make claims against a performance bond but it is important to ensure the contract is very specific about the work to be completed.

INSURED – Licensed contractors in Washington State must also have general liability insurance. Minimum requirements include $50,000 in property damage and $200,000 in public liability, or a $250,000 combined single limit policy. Damage to persons or property due to contractor negligence may be covered by this policy. In some cases, the property owner could be held liable for personal injury if the contractor does not have insurance. If the contractor has employees they are required to have a workers compensation and industrial insurance policy. Contractor employees injured on the job would be covered by this policy. To verify if a particular contractor’s employees are covered, first pull up the contractor details and click on the link to Verify Worker’ Comp Premium Status .

In addition to working with a licensed, bonded, and insured contractor, there are several other steps to ensure your home improvement project goes smoothly. Having a clear understanding of what you want done is important. The contractor must have a good understanding of your needs and wishes to provide a comprehensive bid and scope of work. This is especially helpful when interviewing multiple contractors to ensure estimates actually compare apples for apples. Speak with several qualified contractors and evaluate their written bids. A comprehensive estimate should include a scope of work, materials needed/agreed upon, subcontractors to be used, estimated time to complete the project, price, permit fees, payment terms, warranties, and procedures for change orders. For residential jobs over $1000, the contractor must provide the property owner a Disclosure Statement outlining the customer’s rights and responsibilities and information regarding liens. Once you narrow down your choices, speak with several references, particularly of jobs that are similar to yours. If possible, visit a job in progress. Once you have decided on a contractor and the project begins, meet with the contractor regularly. Make sure work is progressing according to the contract and schedule. Check that the proper permits have been obtained and required inspections are conducted. Once the project is completed, do a final walk-through with the contractor and make sure any pending items are completed before making final payment. If you request lien release documents, avoid making final payment for work performed until you have received the lien release.

Habitat For Humanity

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that builds or renovates housing in partnership with families who meet their criteria and qualify for homeownership. Each home is built through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, alongside and with the help of the partner families. Do you want to get involved? Volunteers are always welcome. Providing general labor (no prior experience required!) and administrative assistance is a fun and interactive way of getting involved. Donations of building materials and household appliances are always needed. And of course tax-deductible monetary donations are always welcome.

Contractor Hotline is excited to be part of this humanitarian effort. Beginning January, 2010 we have committed to volunteer one Saturday per month at the current construction site in Everett. Call Cari at 425-775-9085 for our work schedule if you would like to join us! Starting April 1, 2010 we will also donate a portion of our proceeds from each completed job directly to Habitat for Humanity. So every job you have completed through our services will help benefit Habitat for Humanity!

Deloris B. / Madeira OH
We had a very severe pet urine odor situation in the basement that we just couldn’t get rid of. Justin and Mike pulled my carpet back and showed me how severe the damage was underneath.

Frommer – s – Best Places to Go in 2015 #travel

#best places to travel

In June 2014, UNESCO World Heritage put the Selous Game Reserve on the list of World Heritage sites that are most endangered. Why would a reserve ever be considered at risk? Because at more than 19,000 square miles, the area is impossible to seal against poachers. Elephant and rhinoceros populations have plummeted 90 percent—90 percent! —since 1982. A third of Selous’ elephants, or 25,000 animals, were killed between 2009 and 2013 alone.

The slaughter has been so unsustainable, it is now predicted that elephants will be close to extinction in Sub-Saharan Africa within 10 years, and by 2018, rhino deaths will surpass rhino births, making extinction a mathematical certainty. This qualifies Selous as the most depressing “get there now” Top Destinations designee we’ve ever named.

“Send him to Belize “. That was the euphemistic advice given to lead character Walter White in the final season of TV’s Breaking Bad by his lawyer Saul, who felt that Walt should bump off his cop brother-in-law. Immediately after the episode aired, the Belize Tourism Board issued an invitation to the cast for all-expense paid vacations.

Since Belize has far more Mayan sites, its a better choice for the traveler who wants to mix culture and history in with their green time. Over the course of a week, you might find yourself scaling ancient Mayan pyramids or swimming into caves once used by the Mayans for ceremonies. In the Actun Tunichil Muknal  cave in the Cayo region, centruies-old pots and the skulls of victims of ritual sacrifices have been calcified to the floor. (So it turns out an ancient Walter White actually did send someone to Belize.) Prime dving and snorkeling spots also give his tiny country a thriving beach culture—the opening image for this year’s slideshow was taken in Belize.

For the adventure traveler, there are few countries as satisfying or as suprisingly beautiful as Belize, so visit it before the rest of the world realizes what it’s missing.

Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, U.S.A.

It’s no secret that Yellowstone is one of the most awe-inspiring places to visit in the United States. But in 2015 and 2016, vacationing here will be a more comfortable, contemporary experience. That’s because the Park’s hospitality facilities are undergoing a major overhaul to the tune of $134 million in renovations and new builds. The historic Lake Yellowstone Hotel (designed by Robert Reamer, the man behind the Old Faithful Inn) has been restored to its Colonial Revival grandeur. Meanswhile, ecologically sound, Western-chic lodges are being erected where the dingy, 1960’s era Canyon Lodges and cabins used to be. The modular units are being fabricated in Boise and trucked in by summer, so construction noise and disruption should be minimal.

And finally, now there’s a new reason to go in winter, too. Revised regulations allow one group per day to snowmobile into the park without hiring a guide, which lowers touring costs dramatically.

What is the New Florida PIP Law, pip in florida.#Pip #in


What is the New Florida PIP Law?

Florida s new Personal Injury Protection (PIP) law HB 119, passed by a slim margin in the Senate on March 10, 2012. The new PIP law is hailed as a victory for insurance companies due to several provisions placing limits on the amount of PIP benefits, litigation and monies paid out during claims.

These personal injury law suits are blamed Florida governor Rick Scott and auto insurance companies believe that personal injury protection lawsuits are the cause of increased insurance rates. Florida is a no-fault state and requires all drivers to carry the basic PIP insurance with limits of $10,000.00 in coverage but lacks outlined parameters on types of medical treatments covered or attorney s fees limits. This system is, according to insurers, full of loopholes and flaws and was in need of reform. The old system allowed for excessive medical treatment and opportunities for unwarranted litigation .

What does the new PIP law provide for car accident victims?

The new bill provides strict and rather biased definitions of what constitutes medical treatments and covered injuries. Accident victims now must seek medical treatment within a narrow 14 day (two week) window from the accident and only from specified licensed medical physicians. Acceptable treatment providers include emergency services determined by a physician, osteopath, dentist, physician s assistant or registered nurse practitioner. Chiropractor visits are limited to $2,500 and can only be sought after a referral from an acceptable health care provider.

The new law excludes massage therapists and acupuncturists, which were previously covered under the old PIP law. The stringent nature of the new Florida PIP law greatly cuts the funds available for those injured in auto accidents and is worrisome to many consumer protection groups. Also, the law greatly limits the types of treatment covered under PIP. Those who seek a more holistic, less intrusive type of treatment are left out by the new law, a disconcerting reality to many. Florida Auto accident victims will be forced to rely on their health insurance rather than the $10,000 of medical benefits they were previously entitled to receive.

The new bill contains provisions for the reduction of consumer rates, which seems like a victory for consumers. The bill entails a plan for insurers to roll back rates 10% by October 1, 2013 and 25% by January 1, 2014 or to provide a “detailed explanation” as to why the rates were not reduced. However, the proposed rate reduction does not seem to equal out in policy premiums, a questionable fact which has left many consumer advocates puzzled. Furthermore, PIP accounts for a relatively small percentage of a total premium, which makes the 25% reduction rather insignificant.

We are dedicated to providing top quality medical transportation service to our patients. We work with registered nurses, paramedics, surgeons, physicians, doctors, respiratory therapists and other medical professionals worldwide to ensure the best Air ambulance charter possible.

All air ambulance professionals are specially trained in flight physiology. This means they are uniquely qualified to handle special situations that arise at altitude.

Whether Air Trek Air Ambulance provides medical air transportation on our own aircraft, repatriation, medevac or scheduled commercial airline medical escort service, you can be assured that our response will be the same: top quality professional care.

Air Trek has our own FAA Air Carrier Certificate (Part 135) allowing us to operate within the entire Western Hemisphere, including Cuba. We are headquartered in Florida, just minutes from Naples, Tampa, Orlando and The Villages outside Ocala FL, but our routine response areas include The United States (USA) Canada; Mexico; the Caribbean; North, Central and South America. Worldwide service is provided through strategic partnerships with air carriers throughout the world.

Our entire fleet of air ambulance aircraft (Citation jets and Cessna pressurized twin-engine propeller aircraft) is fully licensed, inspected, insured and equipped with the most up-to-date medical equipment. All aircraft provide Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). The fleet has the range and flexibility to provide everything from emergency international medical evacuation to a trip home for a critical care patient to see family.

Air Trek Air Ambulance can also coordinate the ground transportation before and after the air ambulance portion of the transport, providing bedside to bedside service.

Air Trek s Mission Statement:

The mission for Air Trek is to provide our patients with high quality, cost effective, domestic and international, aeromedical transportation aboard advanced life support equipped jet and pressurized twin engine aircraft

Your staff in the office were very pleasant to work with, organization, coordination and communication exceptional. Thank you so much for making my job easier and taking some of the worry and stress out of this type of transfer. You guys are great to work with. I will probably not work with anyone else in the future.

Case Manager
Fort Myers, FL

Very, very professional and made transition easy for patient and family in spite of the circumstances.

From the start of the process to get my dad home, the whole organization at Air Trek was superb! Thank You All BIG!!

Family Member
Hartford, CT

Just writing to say thanks. You recently transported my father from Florida to NY. He had advanced aortic stenosis and heart failure. I am a board certified practicing emergency physician and medical director for Vermonts’ largest EMS district. I flew down from Burlington, Vermont to be with my father while he was transported from a hospital in Florida to a higher level of care in NY. Needless to say, I was watching the crew like a hawk, and the report is two thumbs up. The paramedic and respiratory therapist (Chad and David) were professional, competent, and extremely kind to my father. I was glad I did not get to see any of their ACLS skills in action, but I’m sure they would have been on their game if need be. Thank you for the excellent service.

Family Member
New York

As you know from working with us in advance and greeting us the night of flight arrival, one of your flight crews transported an elderly family member from PA to Punta Gorda to avoid the grueling relocation in a handicapped wheelchair accessible minivan. The concept of using your service was recommended to us by close friends although we did not think this service was feasible for our needs.

When you made me aware of the possible flight availability for Friday, August 19, 2011, I initially dismissed it as not possible due to logistics, etc. After thinking about the convenience and less stressed way to move an elderly person that is not mobile, we decided it was a great idea. Although I still did not think it was feasible, your team (ground and aircrew) exceeded any and all of our expectations. Not only did your flight crew arrive on time in Punta Gorda, but your ground staff made all arrangements for non-emergency van transport at source (from PA to WV airport) and from Punta Gorda airport to local care facility. We know that is what you do all the time but your staff did it seamlessly and even worked in a few efficiency increasing modifications as the day of flight unfolded. We want to thank Stephanie Griffith (pre-flight arrangements coordinator) and Joy (gave frequent updates the day of the flight) for their patient assistance. Although we assume they have other responsibilities in their work, it seemed as if they were working for us and us alone.

From our experience with Air Trek, we can highly recommend their service to anyone needing transportation for sick or elderly folks who cannot readily travel easily by care or commercial airlines. Because we know that selection of an air transport firm is not taken lightly, please feel free to use this letter in your list of recommendations for prospective clients wanting a higher comfort level before making a final decision in this area.

Family Member

I thought your service was exceptional! Very professional, don’t change a thing.

Family Member
Chicago, IL

On March 10th 2014, you flew my father back from Sanford FL to Pennridge Airport in Perkasie, Pennsylvania.

As a family we wanted to thank you for bringing our father and mother back to PA safely. Personally I want to thank you for all of the support and direction that your people were able to provide to me while working to coordinate Dad’s move. From the very first contact with your company, everyone that I dealt with was highly professional and courteous.

When the day of the move came, the constant updates from you were reassuring and helpful, especially the notifications of inflight progress. Upon landing the flight crew was very courteous and professional as well.

A sincere thank you, for a job well done.

Family Member
Perkasie, PA

Miss Joy was a true blessing. Fantastic – Wonderful peace of mind to know everything was so well planned out. 5 Stars & 2 thumbs up (a third if I had it). First rate. Worth every dollar to know Dad was so well taken care of! Our family was blessed by the Air Trek team! Thank you! An outstanding experince, but I hope we never need to use you again 🙂 If anyone asks, I would highly recommend! Thanks for everything! Peace and Blessings to you all!

Family Member
Peoria, IL

Above and beyond expectations! The quality of service was beyond our expectations. Earl is still telling everyone about his trip and the care & service he received. He can’t belive he is home and we can’t thank you enough for everything!

Family Member
Trenton, NJ

The entire process was flawless. You made a difficult & stressful situation a pleasure right. Rich, Tom, David & Jeremiah were great! Thank you so much!

Family Member
Pittsburgh, PA

Both medical attendants were outstanding and very knowledgeable. They made the flight go faster.

    The BLS reports that MSW programs may be particularly helpful when it comes to obtaining advanced job opportunities or working in some areas such as in schools or health care, and it s required to become a licensed clinical social worker. MSW degrees generally take two years to complete, depending on class scheduling and student aptitude, and require the completion of on-the-job experience through internships or field education before graduation (BLS.gov, 2012 ). Whether working with disabled veterans in a group home, or foster children in need of unique services, students who gain this supervised experience should slowly build their understanding of how to best accomplish their professional social work goals.

    MSW programs: What to expect?

    General coursework in MSW programs might include research and practice, psychopathology, ethical foundations, child welfare and more. Some degree programs may offer concentrations such as child and family services, health services, and management and planning.

    Upon completing their MSW, students can choose to pursue their Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) certification. Typically, the LCSW requires two years or 3,000 hours of supervised clinical hours beyond those already completed through an MSW program (BLS.gov, 2012 ). Other LCSW requirements could include passing a state-administered exam or one offered by the Association of Social Work Boards. and possibly having prior Licensed Social Worker (LSW) certification.

    National career and salary outlook for social workers

    The BLS projects employment for social workers could grow by up to 25 percent nationally between 2010 and 2020, which is better than the national average growth for all occupations (14 percent). Demand is predicted to be even higher in two social work fields: health care as well as mental health and substance abuse. According to the BLS. the national median salary in 2011 for child, family and school social workers was $40,680, with the top ten percent earning up to $70,050 in 2011 and the lowest 10 percent earning up to $26,190 nationally in 2011.

    Those interested in learning more about the field, including new legislation, resources, and professional development, can look for further information through the American Clinical Social Work Association. the Association of Social Work Boards and the National Association of Social Workers. Detailed salary and employment data can be found through the BLS Occupational Employment Statistics program.

    Important Consumer Information and Disclosures

    For information on graduation rates, the median debt of students who complete this program and more, choose a campus below to download.

    • For information on graduation rates, the median debt of students who complete this program and more, please view the Computer Information Science – Tampa .
    • Tampa Completion rates for this program*:
      • No students enrolled part-time in the enrollment cohort July 1, 2009 – June 30, 2010, or the program was not offered during this period.
      • No students enrolled full-time in the enrollment cohort July 1, 2012 – June 30, 2013, or the program was not offered during this period.

    * For information regarding assumptions made in establishing these completion rates, click here

    The completion rate data presented here is calculated using the following assumptions:

    1. The Enrollment Cohort includes all students who started in a program for the first time during the enrollment cohort (financial aid award year, FA AY ). Re-entries are not considered a start in the enrollment cohort (FA AY) if they attended the program in a previous enrollment cohort (FA AY), regardless of how long it has been since their prior attendance.
    2. The enrollment cohort excludes any students that died, if applicable. The enrollment cohort does not exclude permanently disabled students who were unable to continue on at least a half-time basis.
    3. Students are considered completers if they became a graduate in the program. Students with any status other than graduate are considered non-completers.
    4. These calculations use the federal financial aid definition of full-time, and less than full time (number of credits) to determine the cohort the student s completion information will be calculated in. The number of credits the student is enrolled in on the student s first day of attendance is used to determine the student s status. As such, students are considered full-time if they are taking 12 credits or more, and considered less than full time if they are taking less than 12 credits. All modular students are considered full time.
    5. The following calculations are used to display completion information based on the students FT or less than FT status:
      1. (# of full time students in enrollment cohort ( EC ) who completed within 100% program length) / (# of full-time students in EC)
      2. (# of full time students in EC who completed within 150% program length) / (# of full-time students in EC)
      3. (# of less-than-full-time students in EC who completed within 200% program length) / (# of less-than-full-time students in EC)
      4. (# of less-than-full-time students in EC who completed within 300% program length) / (# of less-than-full-time students in EC)
    6. These disclosures reflect completion percentages for the enrollment cohort (by financial aid award year, July 1- June 30) that will provide the most recent group of completers for the longer of the two completion percentages. Specifically, we select the most recent enrollment cohort (FA AY) for the full-time students to have had enough time to complete 150% of their program length; and, we select the most recent enrollment cohort (FA AY) for the less than full-time students to have had time to complete 300% of their program length. As such, enrollment cohorts may vary dependent on program length.

    Shaking the Salt Habit to Lower High Blood Pressure #how #to


    Shaking the Salt Habit to Lower High Blood Pressure

    Do you know the most common sources of sodium?
    Many Americans have acquired a taste for a high salt diet. One way to cut back is to skip the table salt. However, most of the sodium in our diets comes from packaged, processed foods. Eating these foods less often can help reduce your sodium intake, lower your blood pressure and/or prevent high blood pressure (HBP or hypertension) from developing in the first place.

    The American Heart Association recommends no more than 2,300 milligrams (mgs) a day and an ideal limit of no more than 1,500 mg per day for most adults.

    Salt vs. Sodium Equivalents
    Sodium chloride or table salt is approximately 40 percent sodium. It s important to understand just how much sodium is in salt so you can take measures to control your intake. These amounts are approximate.

    1/4 teaspoon salt = 575 mg sodium
    1/2 teaspoon salt = 1,150 mg sodium
    3/4 teaspoon salt = 1,725 mg sodium
    1 teaspoon salt = 2,300 mg sodium

    Sodium Sources
    Sodium can be sneaky! Taking control of your sodium means checking labels and reducing preservatives. Other foods to be aware of include:

    • Processed foods
    • Natural foods with a higher-than-average sodium content, including cheese, seafood, olives and some legumes
    • Table salt, sea salt and kosher salt (sodium chloride)
    • Some over-the-counter drugs
    • Some prescription medications

    Shopping and Cooking
    From the grocery aisles to your dinner table, here are some tips for reducing the amount of sodium that finds its way into your body.

    staticrendition/medium.png” />Shop smart, cook smart

    • Choose lower-sodium foods or low-sodium versions of your favorites.
      Although it may take some time for your taste buds to adjust to a lower sodium diet, there are delicious options for very flavorful low-sodium meals. Once the adjustment to healthier dining is made, many people report they would not choose to go back to the highly processed, sodium-rich foods.
    • When buying prepared and prepackaged foods, read the labels .
      Americans consume up to 75 percent of their sodium from processed foods like soups, tomato sauce, condiments and canned goods. Watch for the words soda and sodium and the symbol Na on labels, which warn you that these products contain sodium compounds. Many canned and frozen food labels help the consumer by printing low salt or low sodium boldly on the packaging.
    • Eat more fruits and vegetables.
      When buying canned or frozen varieties, be sure to choose the no-salt added versions, and look for the choices without added sauces.
    • Use fruit and raw vegetables as snacks.
    • Select unsalted nuts or seeds, dried beans, peas and lentils.
    • Select unsalted or low-sodium fat-free broths, bouillons or soups.
    • Avoid adding salt and canned vegetables with added salt to homemade dishes.
    • Don t use salt during cooking and remove the salt shaker from your table.
      Certain salt substitutes contain a large amount of potassium and very little sodium. They are not expensive and may be used freely by most people, except those with kidney disease. Talk with your healthcare professional about whether a salt substitute is right for you.
    • Learn to use spices and herbs to enhance the natural flavor of food.
      Ditch salt for healthier, delicious salt-free seasoning alternatives.
    • Don t salt food before you taste it; enjoy the natural taste of food.
    • Follow the DASH eating plan .

    Reduce Sodium When Dining Out
    Americans eat more restaurant-prepared meals now than ever, and restaurant food is often high in sodium. But controlling your sodium intake doesn t have to spoil the pleasure of dining out. It just means adopting new habits into your current lifestyle. So if you love dining out, follow these tips.

    • Be familiar with low-sodium foods and look for them on the menu.
    • When ordering, be specific about what you want and how you want it prepared. Request that your dish be prepared without salt.
    • Don t use the salt shaker. Instead, use the pepper shaker or mill.
    • Add fresh lemon juice instead of salt to season fish and vegetables.

    Seasoning Alternatives Spice It Up!
    There is a rich world of creative and flavorful alternatives to salt. Get started with this guide to spices, herbs and flavorings and the food items with which they are a particularly good flavor match. Then get creative and experiment! Here are some seasonings to add variety:

    • Allspice: Lean meats, stews, tomatoes, peaches, applesauce, cranberry sauce, gravies, lean meat
    • Almond extract: Puddings, fruits
    • Basil: Fish, lamb, lean ground meats, stews, salads, soups, sauces, fish cocktails
    • Bay leaves: Lean meats, stews, poultry, soups, tomatoes
    • Caraway seeds: Lean meats, stews, soups, salads, breads, cabbage, asparagus, noodles
    • Chives: Salads, sauces, soups, lean meat dishes, vegetables

    • Parsley: Lean meats, fish, soups, salads, sauces, vegetables
    • Peppermint extract: Puddings, fruits
    • Pimiento: Salads, vegetables, casserole dishes

    Phoenix Bankruptcy Attorney #bankruptcy #attorneys #in #phoenix #az


    Phoenix Bankruptcy Attorneys

    The Phoenix bankruptcy lawyers at Canterbury Law Group are uniquely qualified to represent debtors, creditors, trustees and committees in both personal and commercial bankruptcies. Bankruptcy law provides for the reduction or elimination of certain debts, and can provide a timeline for the repayment of non-dischargeable debts. It also permits individuals and organizations to repay secured debts with more favorable terms to the borrower. The range of services our Phoenix bankruptcy attorneys provide depends on an individual s or a company s unique situation but may include business bankruptcy, Chapter 7, adversary proceedings, restructuring, Chapter 11, creditor representation, Chapter 5 claims and Chapter 13.

    Bankruptcy allows a company to efficiently sell assets or to liquidate in a controlled manner. Just like any other business strategy, bankruptcy should be considered early enough to be a viable strategy to preserve the business’s assets and help it continue as a going concern. Bankruptcy can also be an important tool for assisting in an orderly wind down and liquidation of a business and its assets. In addition to the some of the strategic benefits, liquidating through bankruptcy can provide numerous benefits over merely dissolving your entity.

    The most common form of bankruptcy in the United States, Chapter 7 bankruptcy, provides individuals with a discharge of all debt which are “dischargeable” under the Bankruptcy Code. In a Chapter 7, all of the debtor’s non-exempt assets on the petition date are liquidated through the priorities set forth in the Bankruptcy Code. At the time of filing, the bankruptcy code establishes the creation of your “debtor s estate” which includes all “non-exempt assets.” As a Debtor you have various duties and obligations, including significant duties of co-operation, which are owed to the Trustee. These obligations are designed to assist the Trustee in the administration of your bankruptcy estate. Our Phoenix bankruptcy lawyers will counsel you regarding these duties, which if followed, will make your case run smoothly. Unfortunately, many debtors who are not fully informed of these obligations run the risk of not receiving a discharge of some or all or their debt. If you’re thinking of filing Chapter 7, here are some recommendations from our expert lawyers and legal team:

    • Complete the Mandatory Credit Counseling Before you can file chapter 7 bankruptcy, it is essential to complete credit counseling. It is a mandatory step before you can file and often requires paying a fee. Otherwise, your filing will not be allowed to continue.
    • File All Chapter 7 Paperwork Complete and file all necessary paperwork in court. Make sure all of your paperwork is accurate. Determine any fees associated with your filing.
    • Meet With Your Creditors Approximately one month after filing the petition, you will need to meet with your creditors, an arrangement made by the court. During this important meeting, your creditors will question you regarding your finances and property. Typically this meeting involves only a few people connected with the credit card companies to whom you owe your debt.
    • Attend the Personal Financial Management Instruction Course – In addition to your credit counseling course, a personal financial management course generally costs about $30 and is necessary for completing your filing of chapter 7. If you skip the money management course, you risk dismissal of your case.

    Our firm s lawyers have broad experience in representing creditors in multiple industries including lenders, lessors, landlords, retailers, farmers and other PACA claimants. If you recently received notice that one of your customers or clients is filing bankruptcy, you may have to invoke your creditors’ rights immediately in bankruptcy court to preserve your future ability to collect what is still owed to you. Time is often of the essence, call us today to schedule your consultation with an attorney about preserving your rights to be paid.

    Chapter 5 in the U.S. Bankruptcy code deals with the distribution of assets belonging to the debtor, exemptions and exceptions to what type of debts can be discharged and the entire estate. The team of litigation lawyers at Canterbury Law Group in Phoenix are experts that can help achieve the best results possible in your bankruptcy case.

    A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is not a per se liquidation but rather involves a restructuring of debt over a three or five-year period, pursuant to a plan which is filed with, and approved by, the court. This plan allows a debtor to pay its creditors a percentage of the amounts owed to them. Like in a Chapter 7, in a case under Chapter 13, the court appoints a Trustee. Pursuant to the terms of your Chapter 13 plan, you make one single global monthly payment to the Trustee, who then pays the creditors their pro-rata share of what is owed.

    The primary goal of a business bankruptcy is to reorganize a business, which entails a restructuring of the company s debts so the business can continue to operate. There are many ways that this can be accomplished, ranging from selling assets to closing down sites or reducing personnel. It is critical to understand that bankruptcy affords a business the opportunity to propose and implement these changes, without the looming threat that creditors will shut the business down for good. Contact our experienced business bankruptcy attorneys for a free consultation.

    More individuals, usually with a high net worth, are turning to Chapter 11 to solve their bankruptcy needs. The bankruptcy attorneys at Canterbury Law Group have significant experience with Chapter 11 filings, which tend to be very complex, and are capable of filing an individual case under Chapter 11 as mandated by the facts of each individual case.

    Filing for bankruptcy can be an intimidating process and people are often ashamed of doing it. However, a real challenge when filing for bankruptcy is not securing the services of trusted legal representation like the bankrupcty lawyers at Canterbury Law Group. The legal process can be very demanding and tedious. Without the help of an experience lawyer it is common to miss important deadlines, make mistakes on required forms and to misunderstand certain rules or terms which can be detrimental to your case. The bankruptcy lawyers at Canterbury law Group work diligently with bankruptcy clients to secure their fresh financial freedom.

    The bankruptcy attorneys at Canterbury Law Group are experienced experts in all areas of bankruptcy cases in the Phoenix area. Please call us today to schedule your consultation.

    Associates in Health Administration Programs
    (found programs from 116 schools)

    We ve compiled the most complete directory on the Web of Associates in Health Administration programs. It contains all the nationally accredited programs, from 116 schools across the country. Scroll down to see the listings.

    The field of health care is increasingly being considered one of the most enticing industries in the nation, with healthcare reform efforts resulting in a renewed focus and push in healthcare careers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), healthcare is one of the largest and most lucrative career fields for those with Associate’s Degrees. The BLS also reports that health care support occupations, which include many of those positions you can obtain with an Associate’s degree, result in a mean annual wage of 34,950 (2013).

    Earning your Associate degree is a great way to enter the field of healthcare administration. An associate degree can get you on a path to an entry-level job or lay the groundwork for your bachelor’s degree later on.

    Types of Health Administration Associate Degrees

    You have three basic choices when considering a health administration associate degree: an Associate of Arts in health administration, an Associate of Science in health administration or an Associate of Applied Science in health administration. Which one you choose depends on what you want to do next. The Associate of Arts degree will include more liberal arts classes. An Associate of Science degree will include more science courses. An Associate of Applied Science degree focuses on the technical aspect of the work and is designed for people who want to acquire a specific skill or vocation and go right to work. It is considered a “terminal” degree, meaning not many credits will carry over toward a bachelor’s degree. So, if you want to continue your education at some point, it is best to consider an Associate of Science or an Associate of Arts degree. In all three cases you can choose to get a general health administration degree or you can choose a concentration in a specific area, such as pharmacy practice or medical records.

    Course Requirements for a Health Administration Associate Degree

    The specific courses you will take will depend on what degree you are pursuing and the area in which you plan to concentrate. Most programs require certain core courses in the degree area, such as classes on how the health care system works, technology for managing health care practices and functions, basic medical law and ethics, mathematics, medical terminology and introduction to anatomy. If you are on the arts track, you might take some courses in the humanities, English and writing, civilization, history, sociology or a foreign language. Those on a science track might enroll in introduction to biology, chemistry, psychology and even physics classes. If you are planning to concentrate in the general business aspects of the field, you may take additional courses in business and administration, organizational theory, customer service and marketing. If you seek an area of concentration, you will want to add electives in a specific field such as pharmacology or information technology. Typical degrees require about 60 credit hours of work.

    Job Prospects with a Health Administration Associate Degree

    Most students look for a job when they graduate, even if they plan to go on and get a bachelor’s degree. Work experience can help you get into a better school if you are continuing your education. If you plan to stay in the workforce, experience is the key to better-paying jobs. Getting an entry-level administrative job in a doctor’s office or in a hospital is a common choice, but it isn’t your only option. Insurance companies, clinics, pharmacies and long-term care facilities also look for people with health care administration credentials. You may find yourself doing a little bit of everything in a small physician’s practice. In a larger facility, you may be more focused in an area such as managing patient records, coding for insurance billing or managing inventory at a pharmacy.

    How to Form a Michigan Nonprofit Corporation, setting up an llc


    How to Form a Michigan Nonprofit Corporation

    Setting up an llc in michigan Setting up an llc in michigan

    Most nonprofits are 501(c)(3) organizations, which means they are formed for religious, charitable, scientific, literary, or educational purposes and are eligible for federal and state tax exemptions. To create a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, first you need to form a Michigan nonprofit corporation. Then you apply for tax-exempt status from the IRS. Here are the details.

    Form Your Michigan Nonprofit Corporation

    First, you must form a nonprofit corporation under Michigan state law.

    1. Choose who will be on the initial board of directors.

    In Michigan, your nonprofit corporation must have at least three directors. You can have one or more directors on the board who are 16 or 17 years old, as long as this is stated in your articles and that number doesn t exceed 50% of the number of directors required for a quorum. The initial board of directors will play a key role in determining the purpose and goals for the organization.

    2. Choose a name for your Michigan nonprofit corporation.

    The name of your nonprofit corporation cannot be the same as, or confusingly similar to, the name of another corporate name on file with the state. To see if your proposed name is available, you can search Michigan’s name database available on the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs ( LARA ) website.

    3. Prepare and file your nonprofit articles of incorporation.

    You will need to create and file nonprofit articles of incorporation with the state. There is a fillinable articles form available on the LARA website. You should complete the form following the instructions provided. The articles of incorporation must include the following basic information about your nonprofit:

    • its name
    • its purpose (a general statement for all lawful activities is not sufficient)
    • whether it is organized on a stock or nonstock basis
    • whether it is a membership or directorship organization
    • the street and mailing address of the corporation s registered office
    • the name and address of the initial resident agent
    • the names and addresses of all the incorporators, and
    • its duration.

    The articles form on the LARA website does not include language required by the IRS to obtain tax-exempt status. To receive 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status from the IRS, you’ll need to have additional specific language in your articles, including:

    • a statement of purpose that meets IRS requirements
    • statements that your nonprofit will not engage in prohibited political or legislative activity, and
    • a dissolution of assets provision dedicating your assets to another 501(c)(3) organization upon dissolution.

    Be sure to include the IRS-required language in your articles. For more information on IRS requirements for tax exemption, see IRS Publication 557, Tax-Exempt Status for Your Organization, available on the IRS website.

    4. Prepare bylaws for your Michigan nonprofit corporation.

    You’ll need to prepare bylaws that comply with Michigan law and contain the rules and procedures your corporation will follow for holding meetings, electing officers and directors, and taking care of other corporate formalities required in Michigan. Your bylaws do not need to be filed with the Michigan Bureau of Commercial Services — they are your internal operating manual.

    5. Hold a meeting of your board.

    Your first board meeting is usually referred to as the organizational meeting of the board. The board should take such actions as:

    • electing directors (if not named in your articles)
    • approving the bylaws
    • appointing officers
    • setting an accounting period and tax year, and
    • approving initial transactions of the corporation, such as the opening of a corporate bank account.

    Be sure to keep minutes of your meeting that properly document your board s actions.

    6. Set up a corporate records binder.

    You should set up a corporate records binder for your nonprofit to hold important document such as articles of incorporation, bylaws, and minutes of meetings. For more information, as well as minutes forms, consent forms, and other resolutions, see Nonprofit Meetings, Minutes Records, by Anthony Mancuso (Nolo).

    Obtain Your Federal and State Tax Exemptions

    Now that you have created your nonprofit corporation, you can obtain your federal and Michigan state tax exemptions. Here are the steps you must take to obtain your tax-exempt status:

    1. File your Form 1023 federal tax exemption application.

    To obtain federal tax-exempt status from the IRS, you will need to complete and file IRS Form 1023, Application for Recognition of Exemption Under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. This long and detailed form asks for lots of information about your organization, including its history, finances, organizational structure, governance policies, operations, activities, and more. For line-by-line instructions on how to complete the Form 1023, see How to Form a Nonprofit Corporation, by Anthony Mancuso (Nolo).

    Smaller nonprofits may be eligible to file Form 1023-EZ, Streamlined Application for Recognition of Exemption under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. This is a much simpler, shorter form that is filed online. Only smaller nonprofits–those with projected annual gross receipts of less than $50,000 and total assets of less than $250,000–are eligible to use the streamlined 1023-EZ application.

    See the IRS website for more information on the Form 1023 and Form 1023-EZ filing requirements.

    2. Obtain your Michigan state tax exemptions.

    Once you have your federal tax exemption, you are automatically exempt from Michigan state income tax. In addition, there is no longer an application process for tax exemption from Michigan sales and use tax. See the Michigan Department of Treasury for more information on state tax exemptions for nonprofits.

    3. Other state reporting and registration requirements.

    Depending on your activities and the size of your organization, you may need to register with the Michigan Attorney General before doing any fundraising activities. Check with Michigan’s Attorney General website for registration rules.

    Murder suspect Markeith Loyd asks judge to let Miami lawyer represent him

    ORLANDO, Fla. – Murder suspect Markeith Loyd asked an Orange County judge for a lawyer Monday morning during a court hearing.

    Loyd, who is accused of fatally shooting his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon, and Orlando police Lt. Debra Clayton, previously said he wanted to represent himself at trial.

    Loyd filed a handwritten motion asking that Terence Lenamon, a Miami-based defense lawyer, be his lead attorney instead of Roger Weeden, his appointed standby counsel. Loyd said that he met with Lenamon, who agreed to represent him. Lenamon is known for removing the death penalty from the table for many of his clients.

    Judge Frederick Lauten said that though granting such a request is uncommon, he will consider the motion because he thinks it s important that Loyd be represented.

    Weeden said he was surprised by Loyd s request, but he said he s not opposed to it because he s making progress.

    We are building trust with Markeith, Weeden said. Obviously, the situation he is in, he is very leery about procedures, so it is good to have his trust.

    Should Lauten grant the motion, it could prevent a speedy trial because a newly appointed attorney wouldn t be prepared for the trial, which is scheduled to begin May 1.

    The discovery phase and the collection of a DNA sample were scheduled to happen Monday, but the motions were postponed until a decision is made on Loyd s legal representation.

    Loyd was clear and calm in court Monday and had no outbursts, unlike previous court hearings. But when Weeden asked to speak with his client, Loyd said, I m busy.

    State Attorney Brad King has selected several assistant state attorneys and investigators to prosecute the case.

    Gov. Rick Scott removed State Attorney Aramis Ayala from the case last month after she announced that she wouldn t pursue the death penalty in Loyd s case or any others during her tenure.

    Markeith loyd says he will file motion against Rick Scott and brad king being part of the case. #wftv

    Loyd said he plans to file a motion against Scott and King for their involvement in the case.

    Dixon s relatives said through a family spokesperson that they re considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit against Loyd. They said Scott called them on Friday to apologize for everything that has happened with the case and to offer support with anything they need.

    Loyd blew a kiss and waved at his relatives as he left the courtroom. His next hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. on April 12.

    Helpful Information on Virginia Beach, VA

    Moving To Virginia Beach, Virginia

    If you are considering moving to Virginia Beach, Virginia, there are a couple of things you should know first. It is an absolutely gorgeous town where you will never spend a dull moment. It offers sun and fun, as well as sand, culture and cocktails. It is known as a paradise for lovers and you are likely to loose your heart here. Let’s take a look at what makes Virginia Beach such a great place to live in.

    It May Be a Bit Bigger than You Expected

    Virginia Beach has the world’s longest pleasure beach, as reported in the Guinness World Book of Records. At 250 square miles, however, the city itself is more than just the beach. Hence, if you purchase a property in this area, it doesn’t mean you will have the beach at your doorstep. Indeed, you can have as much as a half hour drive ahead of you before actually getting your feet sandy.

    Swearing Is Not Permitted

    If you attend the resort area of the city, you will notice that there signs everywhere telling you not to use any swearwords. This is actually enforced, if you are a public nuisance and yell them out. Hence, try not to stub your toe and cry out in anger and swear at the same time, because you might get yourself arrested. Also, don’t bump into a cop who is having a bad day.

    It Offers Some of the Country’s Cleanest Beaches

    The beaches in Virginia Beach are so clean that you could actually eat off of them. It is known as the largest sandbox in the state, because it is so clean and beautiful. Each morning, every part of the beach is raked and smoothed to keep it looking pristine and safe. You can see the machines doing this if you live near enough to the beach. This is beach combing 21st century style.

    You Can Visit a Gorgeous Aquarium

    If you are interested in what happens in the water, then you must visit the aquarium. This is particularly true if you have kids, who will certainly love to spend some time there. There are sharks, sand tigers, sting rays and a huge sea turtle aquarium. Additionally, lots of the exhibits are hands-on and you can watch the octopus and jellyfish do their dances. Finally, there is an outdoor element to the aquarium, where you can go along the Owls Creek nature trail.

    It Is a Great Place to Fall in Love

    Virginia Beach truly is a place for lovers. Recently, it adopted a new slogan, which is “live the life,” but everybody knows that what really matters here is love. It is a very popular destination for people to get married, as well as for honeymoons. Indeed, some people call it the Paris of the United States. The city has now even created a beach wedding permit, so that couples can take a private spot on the beaches itself and tie the knot with the ocean crashing its waves behind them.

    It Is a Real Army Town

    Virginia Beach is also all about the military. You cannot go anywhere without seeing – or hearing – the army go about. The Oceana, one of the naval air stations, is located here and this is actually the city’s largest employer. Then, there is the training support center, which is one of the largest centers of its kind on the planet. If you attend the beach early enough, you are likely to see the army personnel engaging in physical exercises – certainly a pleasant sight for the ladies!

    Do be aware, however, that you will also hear many jets passing overhead. They fly across the area all the time, all over the city and the beach. You will know that you have become a true Virginia Beach resident when you no longer jump and look up whenever you hear one of them passing by.

    It Is a Great Place for Fishing

    If you like fishing, you will also feel right at home here. You will be able to dangle your angler in the Atlantic Ocean where it intersects Chesapeake Bay. If you prefer freshwater fishing, there are lots of opportunities out there for you. One of the most popular catch is the striped bass or Rockfish and these have been of award-winning sizes. This is why you will be able to take part in the Rockfish Tournament as well, which takes place every year in January. For the people of Virginia Beach, fishing truly is a sport.

  • Complete Guide To Train Travel In Europe #travel #deals

    #rail travel europe

    Complete Guide To Train Travel In Europe

    Traveling by train is the quintessential method for touring Europe and rightfully so. It s romantic. It s inspiring. Some might say it s almost magical. And to those of you who don t live in a country where train travel is prominent, it s a little mysterious. The rail network is extremely developed and train service is very reliable (unless there are strikes). Trains in Europe are not perfect, but many people consider it the best way to travel. This Train Travel 101 guide will explain everything you ll need to know about train travel and you ll learn some helpful tips.

    Sections Of This Guide

    Advantages To Rail Travel In Europe

    Disadvantages of Rail Travel in Europe

    The train schedules can be a little confusing, especially for beginners, but it is easy to learn. Also, a lot of large cities, and a few small towns, have more than one train stations (Paris has six!). It s not uncommon to arrive in one station and leave from another. I ve shown up at the wrong station a number of times, so be sure you read your tickets carefully.

    It is also possible to change stations during a single journey. For example, traveling from London to Lyon, France via the Eurostar. The Eurostar stops at the Paris North station but then you have to travel to the Paris East station to catch the train from Paris to Lyon, because there are no direct trains from London to Lyon. This transfer would require a cheap metro (subway) ride.

    Striking is a national pastime in Europe.  It happens a few times a year (or more if the people aren t happy), and you ll usually know about them a few days in advance. You ll just have to deal with them if they happen.

    How To Buy Train Tickets Get The Best Price

    Buying train tickets can be a little complicated. Finding the best price is even more complicated. Unfortunately there is no single website that can find the best ticket prices for all of Europe. It does take a little work and planning, but this guide will walk you through the process for getting the best deal possible. If you re interested in information about Eurail passes click here.

    Buy Your Tickets Online:

    You ll get the best deals on tickets if you buy online. BUT . you need to buy them directly from each country s site. For example, if you re traveling in France you should buy the tickets from the French Rail website www.voyages-sncf.com. This way you won t have to pay all the extra fees that you would if you booked through a travel agent. Generally, these tickets can t be mailed outside of Europe, so they have to be picked up at a train station.

    You can also buy tickets from the North American distributor, RailEurope. Rail Europe is a joint venture between the French National Railways and the Swiss Federal Railways, and they were created to sell rail tickets to non-Europeans. Unlike most European rail systems, Rail Europe will mail tickets outside Europe. Unfortunately, there is a good chance you ll have to pay a lot more for a ticket. These sites often don t display any current specials and sometimes they only show the more expensive tickets. It s not unheard of for tickets to be 2x-3x more expensive when purchased through Rail Europe. Although. sometimes the ticket prices are nearly identical to European prices, so it might be easier to buy them through Rail Europe in these cases. Make sure to check both Rail Europe and the country s website and compare prices.

    But (see why this can get confusing), the Rail Europe UK site will usually find the best deals, but tickets have to be picked up in the UK.

    Individual Country s National Rail Websites

    ¹ Domestic tickets (i.e. trips that are wholly within the country) are always the same price, regardless of when purchased, and never require a reservation. Therefore, it is easiest to buy at the station. However, these countries often have a separate international high-speed train system (e.g. Belgium has slower regional trains and high-speed Thalys trains that link major Belgian cities to other international cities).

    Important Notes:

    • Booking tickets online in Eastern Europe is tougher/not possible. It is usually best to purchase them at the station or at a local travel agent. Ask your hostel or hotel and they ll tell you where to locate an agent.
    • Double check the rules about ticket how you can retrieve your tickets. If the rail company won t mail you the tickets then you ll have to pick them up at a station in that country. This presents a problem if you bought your Paris to Barcelona ticket from the Spanish Rail site because you can only pick the ticket up in Spain. Some countries are starting to allow you to print your own tickets but many don t.
    • When you pick up your tickets at the station you usually need to use the same credit card you used to book/purchase online. There are many automated ticket machines in train stations and it is possible to get your pre-purchased tickets there. Although, some only take the chip-and-pin cards (not used in the US) so swipe cards might not work. You can always give it a try first, but you might have to go up to the window to get your ticket.

    Plan Your Rail Journey:

    The Germans are known for being extremely precise and orderly, so it is no surprise that they produce the most in-depth train schedule for all of Europe. Visit www.bahn.de and input your desired journey. You won t be able to buy tickets (unless you re buying tickets for German train travel) but you ll be able to see the schedule of just about every train in Europe. This is great for complex journeys that other websites can t process. Once you know all the train schedules you can break the trip down by country. If you re traveling from Paris to Budapest for example, book a train from Paris to Munich using the French Rail site. Then use the German site to book a train from Munich to Budapest (this is a simple hypothetical situation it maybe be possible to book this journey from the French rail site).

    bahn.de is also great because it gives you all the extra, and often very important, information about each train (if a reservation is required, if there are sleeping/food/bar cars, etc ).

    Book Tickets in Advance:

    Tickets are able to be purchased 90 days (sometimes 60) before departure, although Eurostar tickets are available 120 days in advance. There is a limited amount of cheap tickets and they obviously sell-out the quickest.

    There will usually be a huge price difference when you buy in advance. The Eurostar offers a one-way ticket from London to Paris for about $60 if you book well in advance. That same ticket will cost $140 if booked only a few days in advance and $225 if booked the day before/day of.

    It is important to remember that most regional trains (non-high speed trains) don t change in price based on when you purchase them (i.e. they are the same price no-matter when you purchase them). Just purchase a ticket at the ticket window or ticket machine.

    Youth Discount (under 26):

    All you young whippersnappers under 26 will probably get a discount on most train travel. Although, the discount you receive by booking well in advance is usually cheaper than the youth discount. It does come in handy when you re traveling spur-of-the-moment.

    Night Trains:

    If you re traveling a long distance it could be wise to take a night train. Almost every major city has daily connection to other major cities. Night trains require a reservation. You also have the option to reserve a small bed in a sleeping car. The most common configurations are 6 bed rooms and 2 bed rooms. The rooms are comfy (small) and you ll most likely be sharing the room with strangers. A bed will cost about the same as a hostel bed and should be reserved ahead of time. You save a day of sight-seeing by taking the night train, and you arrive at your destination rested and ready for a new city.

    Final Words About Point-to-Point Tickets:

    As stated above, buying tickets in advance is the best way to save, but this also limits your ability to be flexible/spontaneous. This is especially true since many of the truly cheap train tickets are non-refundable.  For optimum flexibility it might be best to buy a rail pass. For example, when I was in Krakow a lot of the hostelers were talking about Budapest and it sounded really interesting. It wasn t part of my schedule but luckily I had the flexibility to change my plans Budapest turned out to be one of my favorite cities.

    Each person s travel plans are different. Someone traveling for 9 months is going to have a totally different strategy than someone who is on a strict 2 week time limit. This is where solid planning comes into play.

    How To Use Train Tickets

    Note: You can sometimes buy your ticket on the train (although you ll pay extra) but you must seek out an employee quickly. You ll receive a large fine if they come around checking tickets and find that you don t have one.

    Military and UWF #yellow #ribbon #schools #in #florida


    Military and UWF

    One of the most innovative opportunities the Internet opened up for men and women serving in the military is the ability to earn a college degree online – wherever they are based or deployed. It’s also a great option for employed veterans and their spouses – allowing them to earn a degree without taking time off from their civilian jobs.

    Online education has come a long way and the University of West Florida offers robust, highly interactive learning environments that can make online learning as engaging as on campus classes.

    UWF makes it easy and affordable for military personnel and their family members to continue their college programs. Tuition fees are very affordable and are well within the military services range of tuition fees authorized for payment. The UWF out-of-state fee waiver covers the out-of-state portion of assessed tuition and fees for students enrolled in our fully online programs or certificates. This waiver makes tuition and fees only slightly higher than Florida resident tuition even though students may live outside the state.

    For veterans and their spouses, the flexibility of online degree and certificate programs, coupled with the Post 9/11 GI Bill, could cover up to 100% of tuition expenses.

    Military Times – Best for Vets Colleges

    Military Times announced its 2014 Best for Vets College Rankings and UWF is #22 in the nation. The organization comprising Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times placed a new emphasis on academic rigor this year when conducting and scoring the fourth annual Best for Vets: Colleges survey, a highly respected 150-question analysis of a school’s complete offerings for veterans.

    Best for Vets provides service men and women a gauge by which to judge whether a school or degree program will truly benefit them. The rankings factored in service member enrollment, percentage of tuition covered by the GI Bill, and availability of specific programs to help service members.

    Yellow Ribbon Program

    The University of West Florida (UWF) has been a participating member of the Yellow Ribbon Program since 2011. UWF has voluntarily entered into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. This agreement is part of the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program ) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. Only individuals entitled to the maximum benefit rate (based on service requirements) may receive this funding.

    If eligible, the Post-9/11 GI Bill pays up to the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition and fees. You may have tuition and fees that exceed that amount if you are in an out-of-state status. UWF will pay 50% of the amount above the maximum allowed by the Post 9/11 GI Bill and the VA will pay the remaining 50%.

    G.I. Jobs Magazine – Military Friendly School

    UWF NAMED MILITARY FRIENDLY SCHOOL BY “G.I. JOBS MAGAZINE” for the Seventh consecutive year!

    The University of West Florida was named a 2015 Military Friendly School by “G.I. Jobs Magazine.” The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools which are doing the most to embrace America’s veterans as students. Schools on the list range from state universities and private colleges to community colleges and trade schools. Criteria for making the Military Friendly Schools List included efforts to recruit and retain military and veteran students, results in recruiting military and veteran students and academic accreditations.

    The list was compiled through exhaustive research starting last May during which “G.I. Jobs” polled more than 7,000 schools nationwide. Methodology, criteria and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Committee (AAC) consisting of educators and administrators from Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Toledo, Duquesne University, Coastline Community College and Lincoln Technical Institute. “This list is especially important now because the recently enacted Post-9/11 GI Bill has given veterans virtually unlimited financial means to go to school,” said Rich McCormack, “G.I. Jobs” publisher. “Veterans can now enroll in any school, provided they’re academically qualified, so schools are clamoring for them like never before. Veterans need a trusted friend to help them decide where to get educated, and the Military Friendly Schools list is that trusted friend.”

    New Joint Services Education Transcript

    The Sailor Marine Corps American Council on Education Registry Transcript (SMART), the Army American Council on Education Registry Transcript System (AARTS) and the Coast Guard Institute (CGI) have been aligned to implement one collaborative transcript program called the Joint Services Transcript (JST). The JST is now the official transcript tool for Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Coast Guard personnel. Service members can join upcoming webinar sessions on the new JST by registering. For more information on the JST, contact Laurine Anderson. JST Program Manager at (850) 452-1001, Opt 3, Ext. 1097. For information about the Military Evaluations Program through ACE, contact Sandra Winborne at (850) 452-1111 Ext 3213. For information on DANTES, visit the DANTES website.

    Masters Degree in Applied Behavior Analysis – Department of Psychology #masters


    Masters Degree in Applied Behavior Analysis

    Behavior analysis is the science of the causes of behavior. In applied behavior analysis, this science is applied to significant problems of human behavior, typically at the level of the individual rather than of the group. The scope of behavior analysis is wide-ranging, including work in developmental disabilities, in behavioral medicine, education, and organizations, to mention just a few applications. Mastery of applied behavior analysis calls for competence in basic psychology, in the detailed knowledge base of behavior analysis, in measurement techniques for evaluating existing behavior and for designing treatment programs for individuals and in the various skills essential to delivering services and maintaining their effectiveness.

    Applied behavior analysis requires accountability in its service delivery. The UMBC M.A. track is responsive to the increasing call for such services and fills a gap in the availability of such programs in the mid- Atlantic region. The UMBC Department of Psychology together with the Kennedy Krieger Institute’s (KKI) Department of Behavioral Psychology are uniquely suited to support a rigorous program in applied behavior analysis. The track is accredited by the Association of Behavior Analysis International and is included in the list of programs approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board, so that students who have completed our M.A. degree are qualified and well prepared to sit for the BCBA certification examination.

    The dimensions considered by the Application Committee include grades (GPA), Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores, three letters of recommendation (preferably including academic as well as work-related references), work experience related to applied behavior analysis, self-statements (including the applicant’s stated reasons for an interest in applied behavior analysis at UMBC, in response to items on the supplemental application) and other information presented by the applicant in the application or during interviews. Where applicants cannot visit UMBC or the KKI facilities, interviews can be conducted by telephone. The decisions of the committee also take into account the applicant pool in combination with an applicant’s fit to available faculty members.

    Applicants with questions about the academic and clinical aspects of the ABA MA program should begin by sending an email message to both co-directors. Potential applicants should provide some information both about their educational background (an attached unofficial copy of the applicant’s transcript can be helpful) and about the nature of their interest in a career in applied behavior analysis (including relevant work experience). In case a discussion, rather than an email reply, seems appropriate, inquiries should also include phone contact information (numbers and best times to call).

    The application deadline is January 1.

    A Region of Opportunity

    Just 15 minutes away from downtown Baltimore and 30 minutes from the Washington beltway, UMBC offers easy access to the region’s resources by car or by public transportation.

    Students find it easy to access classes, obtain practical experience and participate in opportunities at other schools in the University System of Maryland. Nearby national research centers, libraries and museums are also a resource for scholarly activity.
