FBAR Penalties and Criminal Penalties, fbar statute of limitations.#Fbar #statute #of


FBAR Penalties and Criminal Penalties

Failure to file FinCEN form 114 (the FBAR) can be far more severe if the failure to file is found to be willful. A finding of a willful failure to file carries a penalty of up to the greater of $100,000 or 50% of the account balance. This penalty is in addition to the tax, interest, and an accuracy penalty of between 20% and 40%. The test for willfulness is whether there was a voluntary, intentional violation of a known legal duty. The IRS has the burden of proof, but in a FBAR case, the only thing the prosecution must show is that the person knew they had obligation to report.[1] If there is a finding of willfulness, there is a strong potential criminal prosecution of the case. If the failure to file is found to be non-willful, the penalty is potentially $10,000. Prison time is still possible for the non-willful taxpayer, but unlikely.

The Internal Revenue Service has an arsenal of potential criminal charges:

  • Failure to file an income tax return – IRC § 7203 – not filing a required return in a timely manner. A person who fails to file a tax return is subject to a prison term of up to one year and a fine of up to $100,000.
  • Filing a false return – IRC § 7206(1) – filing a return containing false information. Filing a false return subjects a person to a prison term of up to three years and a fine of up to $250,000.
  • Tax evasion – IRC §7201 – willfully attempting in any manner to evade paying tax. A person convicted of tax evasion is subject to a prison term of up to five years and a fine of up to $250,000.
  • Tax perjury – IRC §7206(1) – willfully signing false returns under penalty of perjury. A person convicted of perjury is subject to a prison term of up to five years and a fine of up to $250,000.
  • Tax obstruction – IRC §7212(a) – corruptly impairing the lawful function of the IRS. A person convicted of obstruction of justice is subject to a prison term of up to and not more than 10 years or a fine of up to $250,000.
  • Conspiracy – 18 U.S.C. §371 – conspiring to commit one of the above crimes or impairing the IRS from enforcement. A person convicted of conspiracy to commit one of the above offenses or to defraud the United States is subject to a prison term of not more than five years and a fine of up to $250,000.
  • Willfully failing to file an FBAR – 31 U.S.C. § 5322 – Knowing of the obligation to file the FBAR and not doing so. Failing to file an FBAR subjects a person to a prison term of up to ten years and criminal penalties of up to $500,000.
  • Willfully filing a false FBAR – 31 U.S.C. § 5322 – Filing a FBAR with inaccurate information. Failing to file an FBAR subjects a person to a prison term of up to ten years and criminal penalties of up to $500,000.

FBAR Penalties- Statute of Limitations

A “statute of limitations” is a law which defines the time within which a legal action may be brought against a person or entity for an act or omission. Once that period of time has run out it is said that the statute of limitations has “tolled” which means you are exempt from having a legal action, civil or criminal filed against you. With regard to tax matters, the statute of limitations is the time period that the government can come back against you criminally or civilly regarding issues concerning your tax returns. For example, if you fail to file your 1040 or 1040A, neither the three-year statute of limitations on assessment of tax and penalties, nor the 10-year statute of limitations on collection of such assessments, starts to run until you file your tax returns.

With respect to FBAR penalties, if you fail to file Form 8938 or fail to report a specified foreign financial asset that you are required to report, the statute of limitations for the tax year may remain open for all or a part of your income tax return until 3 years after the date on which you actually file Form 8938.[2] In other words, if you never file the delinquent return, the statute of limitations never starts to run. This period can be extended if you do not include in your gross income an amount relating to one or more specified foreign financial assets. If the amount you omit is more than $5,000, any tax you owe for the tax year can be assessed at any time within 6 years after you filed your return.

If a completed form 3520 is not filed by the due date, including extensions, the time for assessment of any tax imposed with respect to any event or period to which the information required to be reported in Parts I through III of such Form 3520 relates, will not expire before the third anniversary of the date on which the required information is reported.[3] So, again if you never file the delinquent return the statute of limitations does not start to run.

What is Enterprise Cloud Computing FAQ? Definition from, characteristics of cloud


Enterprise Cloud Computing FAQ

Characteristics of cloud computing

  • Share this item with your network:

augmented reality

Augmented reality (AR) is the integration of digital information with live video or the user’s environment in real time.

What is cloud computing?

The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology provides the most neutral definition of cloud computing. “Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. This cloud model promotes availability and is composed of five essential characteristics, three delivery models, and four deployment models.”

What is enterprise cloud computing?

Enterprise cloud computing is the special case of utilizing cloud computing for competitive advantage through breakout opportunities both for cost savings and, more importantly, for business innovation in terms of unprecedented speed and agility with vastly improved collaboration among business partners and customers. What does “cloud computing” mean for the enterprise? More important than the question of “what is it?” is why it matters. Here are three key points.

1) On the cost side of the equation, many, but not all, IT and data center costs can be reduced and tied directly to usage, up or down as needs go up or down (rapid elasticity).

2) But there’s more, much more, on the revenue side. Risk and startup expenses for innovation initiatives can be cut dramatically, letting companies take more small bets and test out more new ideas. With no upfront capital expense, new projects can be scaled up instantly if they take off, or shut down quickly if they fail. Massive scalability and up-or-down elasticity give companies a whole new sandbox for testing new business ideas and growing them if they take off.

3) Companies don’t work alone, and, on average, over 20 companies make up today’s value chains. Cloud computing allows a company to collaborate in new ways with its trading partners, and collaboration is the key to gaining competitive advantage across the value chain. By establishing shared workspaces in “Community Clouds” employees from multiple companies can work together as a “virtual enterprise network” and function as though they were a single company. They all participate in the same value delivery system, sharing computing, communication and information resources. This is especially important as no one company “owns” the overall value chain.

Is cloud computing new?

Cloud computing is not a new technology or architecture or methodology. But it is a new Information Technology “delivery model” where all computing and networking resources are delivered as “services” that are elastic (use as much or as little as you need at any given time), massively scalable, and are available on-demand with self-service, pay-as-you-go variable cost subscriptions.

What’s driving enterprise cloud computing?

For sure, cost savings represent a significant driver. But far more important are the changes going on in the larger world outside of the business world in our hyper-connected global society. With the advent of easy-to-use “Consumer IT” or Web 2.0 usage of the Internet, Social Networks are changing the ways we live, learn, collaborate, work, consume and play. These huge changes in society also disrupt the way we design and manage our organizations and our value chains that deliver value to customers.

What is a Service-Oriented Enterprise?

What really differentiates a Service-Oriented Enterprise (SOE) from a traditional business model is its “outside-in” approach. A SOE creates business-driven value by defining and exposing its core business processes to the external market through the use of open technology in the form of “services.” This reorganization includes new business requirements, new operating zones and new license structures that can enable improved collaboration between organizations and their customers and suppliers. A SOE has the capability to organize its responses to market shifts due to the agility within its culture, processes and IT systems.

What is Business Technology?

The term Business Technology (BT) is frequently used to describe new technologies such as Web 2.0 and their use in business to differentiate them from the tools and techniques of traditional Information Technology (IT). The key differentiation between BT and IT centers on decentralization and unstructured environments. Organizations still need the centralized and structured role of IT to 20 Enterprise Cloud Computing provide back office functionality, but BT is an additional layer focusing on the front office and customer-facing business activities.

Is cloud computing the same as Software-as-a-Service(SaaS)?

While SaaS vendors originally did not use the word “cloud” to describe their offerings, analysts now consider SaaS to be one of several subsets of the cloud computing market. With traditional SaaS offerings, a company is buying pre-packaged “canned” software applications (e.g.,ERP, SCM or CRM packages) that are hosted remotely, usually in a multitenancy environment, and accessed via the Internet. SaaS applications can become “participants” in unique end-to-end business processes (see BPMaaS).

What is Business Process Management as a Service (BPMaaS)?

With SaaS offerings, a company is buying “same-old” pre-packaged software, but BPMaaS goes far beyond canned “business software as usual” being put online. It goes on to creating unique business processes designed for unique and specific purposes to link together multi-company value delivery systems that in the past weren’t feasible or economical to join together. BPMaaS is all about the complete management of business processes, and puts business people in charge of their processes. In many ways, BPMaaS is what sets enterprise cloud computing apart from consumer cloud computing. Unique business processes are how companies differentiate themselves, and are thus paramount to the enterprise use of cloud computing for competitive advantage. BPMaaS covers the full lifecycle of business processes, from their conception, design implementation and optimization. Bringing BPM capabilities to the Cloud enables multiple companies to share a common BPM system and fully participate in an overall end-to-end business process.

What are the economics of cloud computing?

Cloud computing brings immense economies of scale to computing and delivers computing resources on-demand in much the same way utilities deliver gas and electricity. In the past, companies had to make ever-growing capital expenditures (CAPEX) in comEnterprise Cloud Computing 21 puting resources to implement new information systems. Furthermore, to accommodate potential peak loads, they installed huge amounts of capacity so that today only 10-15% of data center capacity is typical utilized. The shift to the on-demand model of cloud computing isn’t just about cost savings. Far more important, it’s about giving organizations the agility they need to act quickly on new opportunities without IT being on the critical path. “Fast to market” is a central economic variable and speed is essential in the world of total global competition.

What’s the difference between “cloud computing” and “cloud services?”

In short, everything. “Cloud computing” implies a framework and vocabulary aimed at technology semantics. “Cloud services” implies a framework and vocabulary aimed at business semantics. While cloud computing belongs to the domain of Information Technology (IT), cloud services belong to the domain of Business Technology (BT). In other words, cloud services are about business, while cloud computing is about technology. The focus of this book is on the domain of business.

Sample Life Insurance Application Questions #example #of #life #insurance


Sample Life Insurance Application Questions

Whether you re thinking about applying for life insurance or just curious, we will cover exactly what s on the life insurance application. Life insurance companies use a lot of information to safeguard themselves from bad risk in order to maintain their financial strength. That is why a lot of information is asked up front for the application and additional information gathered on the back end. Most life insurance companies have similar sections for different information they require.

First part of the life insurance application you will be asked for your personal information such as your full name, address, DOB, driver license, social security, and employment information. Next, the application will usually ask you for both primary and backup beneficiaries. This is where you will decide how the pie will be distributed between your family in the event of sudden death. Keep in mind that you will need to have your beneficiary s name, DOB, relation to you, social security number and percentage to be paid out.

Here is where it gets interesting because you will be asked a series of questions about your medical history and non-medical hazards. There are too many questions to list, but let s look at some sample overview of what to expect.

Sample Life Insurance Health Questions

What is your height and current weight?

  • Your build will strongly affect your rates and some companies will give you a better rate so it s important to shop around.

Have you ever used tobacco?

  • If you haven t used tobacco in the last 24 months most companies will give you a non-smoker rate however to get the best rating you need to be tobacco free for more than 5 years. For anyone who uses electronic cigarettes. tobacco chewing or occasional cigar you may qualify for non-smoker rates as well.

Has anyone in your immediate family passed away from stroke, cancer or heart attack prior to age 60?

  • If the answer is yes, you can expect to get a higher rate since this statistically means you have higher odds of getting those illnesses.

Are you diagnosed with any illness/diseases? (Blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, heart attack, asthma, cancer, hepatitis, depression and many others)

  • This is where most clients get substandard rates or simply get declined. For each condition you have the company will deduct points so they kind of stack up to determine your final rate or eligibility.

Are you on any prescription medications?

  • This is a good time to let the carrier know since they will be running a prescription database check. So it s best to be straightforward and let them know what the meds are for.

Have you been hospitalized within the last few years?

  • If you have a medical condition and have been hospitalized for it within the last 24 months typically that looks bad and some carriers will want you to wait before reapplying.

Do you have AIDS, HIV or ARC?

  • If you answer YES, then you should only be looking at a guaranteed issue life insurance plan.

Are you on disability now?

  • This is usually asked to see if your medical condition is disabling you from working and if it is then you have a moderate to severe condition.

Name, phone, address of your primary care physician?

  • Carriers ask these details since they will pull medical records if they need additional details. Sometimes this will be skipped if everything else is totally normal.

Sample Life Insurance Hazard Questions

Are you a pilot?

  • For commercial pilots, there is no surcharge. If you re a private pilot you will need to have certain certifications and total hours. For student pilots, there is a flat extra for the time they are students which get very costly.

Do you participate in any dangerous activities?(skydiving, scuba diving, racing, mountain climbing, etc.)

  • If you answer yes, it is going to be wise to use a high-risk agency since most companies will rate you highly or decline the application.

Are you planning to reside outside the U.S. within the next two years?

  • If you are the carrier want to know which country since certain countries are extremely risky. For example, if you re going to a country where there is mishap or war you ll most likely be declined.

Have you been convicted of a felony or DUI?

  • Someone with a felony should only apply for life insurance after 12 months once probation or parole has been completed and only with certain companies. (click here for more info) DUI s are a little easier to insure but prepare for higher rates especially if it occurred recently.

Any history of substance abuse?

  • This can get tricky especially if it is recent. From our experience, the companies want to see some time pass.
  • If you re active military almost all life insurance carriers will turn you down for obvios reasons.

There is also a section on the application that asks about the coverage specifics. This is where all the information about your plan type, coverage amount, and any additional riders will go. Next, you will need to provide information about an existing life insurance coverage and answer questions pertaining to replacement of the policy.

Once the application is complete, the company will schedule an exam unless you opt for no exam life insurance. It’s crucial not to hide any information since the life insurance companies are incredibly good at finding most minor details about you. They will check the MIB (Medical Information Bureau), Rx databases, doctor records, DMV and might even request a file from a consumer reporting agency.

If you re wondering what the application entails because you re unsure about your eligibility. There are thousands of life insurance companies and each company has conditions which they will insure that others won t. The key is to work with an agency that is independent and represents many different companies. As mentioned before, be upfront with your agent so they can recommend the right company for you.

Hope we were able to give you an idea of what to expect, but if we missed anything drop us a comment or simply reach out. Now that you know, we welcome you to check out some term life quotes here .

Detailed Maps of Australia #jayco #travel #trailers

#student travel australia

Australia Travel Maps

Arming yourself with maps of various types is a necessity when learning to get around in a new place. International students who come to Australia should have road and transportation maps, as well as maps of the local area. Visitors should also possess a complete map of Australia and its regions. Fortunately, maps are readily available for those who need them.

Types of Maps

A complete map of Australia typically displays the six states and two territories that comprise the country: New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania, Australian Capital Territory (ACT), and the Northern Territory.

Transportation maps are handy for newcomers. Australia offers several means of public transportation including bus, rail, air, and ferry. Many of the bus and rail routes coordinate, permitting visitors to easily plan trips and change from rail to bus or bus to rail to get to their destinations. The rail system boasts comfortable, modern long distance and commuter trains. Bus travel is common in Australia. Buses are an economical and practical way to travel through the country. Most metro districts operate efficient bus routes and maps are available both online and at stations. For those who drive, a map of Australia roads and highways is imperative.

Other useful maps include recreation, topographical, and wilderness area maps, beach maps, points of interest maps, local, and historical maps. Back country activities, such as hiking, are extremely popular in parts of Australia and a current map is essential when participating in such pastimes.

Along with the traditional map of Australia, transportation, road, highway, and historical maps are some more unusual maps. For example, the Australian government offers a National Public Toilet map on its web site that lets visitors interactively plan a trip that marks every public toilet along the way. The map can be downloaded to a computer or mobile phone. Perhaps a less useful, but nonetheless interesting, map is the Australia Is Big map that overlays a graphic of various countries over the Australian continent to help viewers visualize just how big Australia is.

The government of Australia provides many online mapping services. You can plan your trip, view public transportation routes and connections, download and print maps in PDF format, or download maps to your mobile phone. Most state and territory web sites offer similar services.

Many online trip planning and mapping services sell printed maps, atlases, and other types of maps. Printed maps can also be found at various Australian locations within a locale.

Public bus and rail system web sites are extremely useful sources of maps. Routes can be planned online and maps printed out according to specific instructions.

International students will find many map resources at their educational institution. A map of Australia is just one type they will find. Local, transportation, historical, points of interest, and many other types of maps will be available to them.

Accurate maps will go far to enhance your stay in Australia. Being lost will probably happen on occasion, until you are familiar with the area, but with good maps and common sense, getting lost will be a minor diversion and not a frustrating experience.

Cost of generac kw generator #cost #of #generac #kw #generator


Generac Air Cooled Generators

Generac Air Cooled Generators

Generac protects the things that power your life by providing quality, affordable power solutions. When you think about generators, you think Generac. Since 1959 they have committed to developing a long term vision that promotes environmentally responsible products, processes, and partnerships. Their generators provide power to homes, commercial buildings and large industrial equipment. AP Electric has been working with Generac for almost twenty years, giving us the advantage of the hands on experience needed to supply you with the most valuable generators on the market.

This year Generac has transformed several of their bestselling models in order to provide more efficient, reliable backup power. We have been working with electricians since our company opened in 1999, and, any one of our contractors would tell you that the model 6244 has been their go to air cooled generator for years. This 20 kW generator was the best choice for many residential property owners. The 6244 model has been eliminated. That came as a huge shock for our customers and our own customer service team. The newest 20kW generator is the 6729. The model 6729 models the 6244 in design and operational features. The Generac 6729 is encased with a steel enclosure, while the 6244 has an aluminum enclosure.

So Generac, why the change? Previously buying a 17kW generator, like the Generac 6242, really only gave you 16kWs of running power. Newer models, like the Generac 6462. provide 16kWs for both starting and running watts. Most natural gas generators had two kW ratings, one for starting watts and the other running watts. This meant that you were figuratively paying for an extra kW unnecessarily. By upholding their promise to offer the most valuable products, Generac eliminated their 17kW and 14kW models. This allowed them to focus on improving the existing 16, 20 and adding a 22kW air cooled line. What works even better for our customers is the newer models are actually less expensive than the equivalent discontinued products. You are going to see savings upwards of $100 on the newer models without sacrificing any power.

The biggest release we saw this year was the revolutionary 22kW air cooled product line. The entire generator line is designed to optimize key real-world performance elements: total cost per kilowatt, reliability, ease of operation and capacity in relation to the range of load requirements of modern homes. The Generac 6551 22kW Generator in the Guardian Series is the largest air-cooled unit in our line. This model delivers the lowest comprehensive cost per kW with whole house power coverage.

Generac engineers all of its generators for the long term: the 6551 Guardian generator s all-weather aluminum enclosure has a robust powder-coat finish which is corrosion-resistant. The enclosure has been tested to withstand wind speeds up to 150 mph and is at home in seaside or high elevation environments. The Guardian Series is also extremely flexible in terms of specific site applications and fuel-source issues. In areas with low gas system pressure, the 6551 Guardian generator can operate with pressure as low as 3.5 of water column. If needed, the unit can also be field-converted to LP gas supply (or vice versa) in a few seconds without any tools.

This yard-friendly, remarkably quiet generator runs a low-RPM periodic self-test for only five minutes. The homeowner decides whether this test runs weekly, bi-weekly or monthly and at what specific times. They support the 22kW 6551 Guardian with a 24/7 Customer Service Hotline which is staffed by our in-house technical and administrative support. Of course, this class-leading generator is manufactured in Wisconsin and carries Generac s five-year limited warranty. Please take a look at customer reviews of this unit elsewhere on the website. There is a large and growing base of satisfied homeowners who attest to the superior dependability and low maintenance demands of the 22kW model 6551.

If you are in the market for a new home standby generator for yourself, your business or your clients we encourage you to explore the new Generac models. The 22kW line offers a great value, and, the 16kW and 20kW models offer great values for smaller power needs. AP Electric has a knowledgeable technical support team that can answer questions about any of these models or changes that Generac has made this year. If you are unsure which kW rating you need use our Generator Sizing Tool.

Generac offers the most comprehensive line of air cooled generators in the market today. Generac generators come in a variety of sizes ranging from 6kW to 22kW. By now you should be pretty sure of the size of generator you are looking for. Only consider a home standby generator if you are looking for a unit that will be permanently affixed to your home. A Generac air cooled generator is permanently installed, much like an air conditioner outside of your home or business. A Generac air cooled generator is either a home standby (circuited meaning it powers a limited number of chosen devices) or whole house (meaning it powers all or many of the devices in a home or small business). Knowing this information will help you nail down which transfer switch option you need. Most Generac Generators are conveniently packaged with compatible transfer switch options.

Be sure to visit the Generac 22kW Air Cooled Generators. These models offer the lowest comprehensive cost per watt to run. Imagine not losing any conveniences during a power outage. In many remote areas, power could be lost for days at a time. One year of not throwing away food or replacing damaged electronics pays for the cost itself. The peace of mind these generators offer are unmatched.

  • The School of Positive Psychology (Singapore) Diploma in Applied Positive Psychology


    Diploma in Applied Positive Psychology

    Why do people behave in certain ways? What is going on in everyone’s mind? Why are some people happier than others? What influences our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours? Am I the same person when I’m alone or in a group?

    The course introduces students to the study of the human mind and behaviour in individuals and groups. Students will consider how aspects of their biology, ways of thinking, social environment, relationships and social identity combine to make us who we are. The course introduces the student to a wide range of psychological approaches and looks into areas such as learning, memory, emotions, and identity. Apart from learning the psychological theories, students will be taught the practical side by being exposed to the field of counseling and psychotherapy.

    The course explores the development and applications of positive psychology as a paradigm shift in the field of psychology. Positive psychology emphasizes on subjective human experiences such as happiness and well-being, positive personality traits and their influence in the group and community.

    This program will give students a head start in pursuing further studies and by adding to their existing qualifications and experience by being able to apply psychological, counselling and positive psychology principles to individual, social and organizational matters.

    Best Days Of The Week To Book Airfare, From Jeanenne Tornatore

    #book airfare

    Best Days Of The Week To Book Airfare, From Jeanenne Tornatore (VIDEO)

    Orbitz Travel Expert Jeanenne Tornatore shared a few handy tips on when to book airfare for the cheapest rates possible.

    “When you’re looking at when to book, earlier in the week can be better, since a lot of airlines put their fare sales out earlier in the week,” she explained, suggesting Tuesday and Wednesday as the most cost-effective days to book flights.

    If you know you will be traveling during the busy summer season, Jeanenne recommends booking farther in advance, especially for popular destinations.

    “Fare prices go up as flights get fuller, and some of them will get booked to capacity during the busier summer months,” she told us.

    As far as specific time of day, Jeanenne told us that some people believe midnight is the best time, as some companies upload their most recent options at that time.

    “I personally don’t stay up that late!” she laughed, “but if you’re looking for a deal, try midnight.”

    For more of Jeanenne’s expert travel tips, view the slideshow below:

    Benefits of Air Travel

    The Aviation Division can provide transportation to most locations in the State or across the nation.  One to two days travel by auto can be accomplished in one to two hours of flight.  Today’s leading executives agree that time is their most valuable resource.  Air transportation is an important business tool to save time and maximize productivity of personnel.  This is certainly true of state government.  The state, by maintaining an Aviation Division, is able to move key personnel around the state, or anywhere in the country.  In many instances this is more efficient and cost effective than auto, commercial airline or charter service.

    The Aviation Division can provide the following services:

    • Greater effectiveness in providing State employees with travel flexibility.
    • Access to travel points not served by commercial airlines
    • Travel time can be spent preparing for meetings, fine tuning presentations, or in private conference.
    • Indirect cost savings due to more efficient use of work time, and a reduction of out-of-office time and hotel expenses for personnel.
    • Reliable transportation, and dependability of known skilled maintenance and flight crews.
    • Capability for express air courier and emergency service.

    Aviation Division pilots collectively possess more than 40,000 hours of flying experience.  Each pilot holds an Air Transport Pilot (ATP) rating, the same as required for a captain of any major US airline.

    Our experienced aircraft maintenance chief holds an FAA certified Aircraft Inspector certificate.

    Constant recurrent training is a priority to ensure we maintain the highest standards of aviation safety.  FlightSafety International and Bell Helicopter Academy currently supplies both flight and maintenance training.

    Please scroll down to read what parents say about our college road trip itineraries.

    “A friend who is a maven in finding outstanding resources, recommended Janice and Custom College Visits as we began the daunting college selection process. We worked with Janice on two fronts; to help create a list of colleges and to set-up meaningful colleges visits. The college visits were also a lot of fun for us as a family and very informative on so many levels. More importantly Janice helped make the college selection process manageable, not so daunting after all, and we felt no stone was left unturned in this important decision.

    Tracy P. Parent of a New York City high school Senior

    Thank you so much for planning such a wondrous experience for our son. The careful attention to detail was evident at every turn. Custom College Visits planning effort provided an appropriate path of discovery for our son and for us.

    Michael C. New Jersey parent of a high school Junior

    Hi Janice, Our trip was a thoroughly enjoyable family adventure! Thank you so much for the unique opportunities that you created for our daughter at each college. Meeting with a student at Harvard, was probably the most informative way to start the entire trip. She devoted a lot of time (in the rain) providing real college life details. She swiped us into dining halls, dorms & buildings that we might not have seen otherwise. The sophomore session at Princeton was wonderful! Thank you so much for everything that you did! We really were able to get the most out of each campus visit! Best, Julie

    Julie, Parent of a high school Junior in Southern California

    I found working with Custom College Visits a very positive experience. They were able to pinpoint colleges that were best suited for my daughter and the travel plans were well organized. In addition, they were able to set up an interview with a member of a college color guard, as my daughter had expressed interest in going to a school that had a color guard. I am very pleased with my experience with Custom College Visits, and would recommend them highly.

    Mark L. Parent of high school junior in Northern California

    Lili got accepted into her first choice school today (early decision): Boston University! She is thrilled beyond belief and relieved as well. We could not have done it without your help, it was invaluable. I think the High School Honors program she did there was probably very helpful and we would not have know about it without your forwarding the information to us. You rock! So, I am tipping my hat today to both you and Lili!

    Kim T. Parent of high school senior in Kansas

    I am happy to tell you that Nivi has been accepted early decision to Brown University. She is the first ivy leaguer in our family and we couldn’t be more proud! Her decision to apply was made easier because of the excellent experience she had during her customized tour via your company so thank you so much! We will be sure to recommend you to our friends here..

    Gayathri S. Parent of high school senior Chennai, India

    Thank you again for being so good at what you do. Our trip to the US was a huge success. I was on the verge of cancelling the trip but knew I couldn’t let my son down. That I even found you on the internet was a direct answer to my prayer for a miracle. The itinerary worked very well. I knew I was in good hands even before I boarded the plane to the U.S. and your attention to detail far exceeded my expectation.

    Egbe O. Parent of international high school student

    We had a wonderful trip to Philadelphia and Boston thanks to Janice Caine of Custom College Visits. She worked out an itinerary from start to finish. We visited 9 schools and it was as smooth as possible. Janice worked out tours and information sessions as well as meetings with tennis coaches.We have boy/girl twins and both were happy which is not an easy achievement. Not only did Janice work out the schedule but she recommended great schools in both towns. We would highly recommend her.

    Phil S. Parent of high school students SF Bay Area

    “Thank you SO MUCH for your involvement in the Splash Parents’ Program this weekend! I am just reviewing the feedback forms, and your presentation received rave reviews across the board; many parents cited it as the highlight of the program for them! Some verbatim quotes include: ‘The Planning and Preparing for College Visits was a great eye opener;’ Thank you for all the effort, energy, and enthusiasm you put into making the event such a success.”

    Marisa M. Coordinator, Splash Parents’ Program Stanford University

    Our college process was two-fold. It began with getting a jump start on the standardized testing, and not waiting until spring of junior year to focus. I believe our outcome was successful because we had a well-managed plan helped along by an expert, Janice Caine, of Custom College Visits.

    Lisa L. Parent of high school students SF Bay Area

    Happy New Year! Wanted to let you know that Charlie was accepted to Johns Hopkins Early Decision! Great news and very exciting all around. Thank you for all your help.

    How Much Is the Average Monthly Cost of Car Insurance for


    How Much Is the Average Monthly Cost of Car Insurance for a 17-Year-Old?

    Written by James Hirby and Fact Checked by The Law Dictionary Staff

    Like airlines and rental car companies, car insurance companies are prone to changing the cost and terms of their services without warning. This is understandable: Car insurance policies are subject to dozens of disparate factors that combine to create a unique profile for each covered driver. In the eyes of American auto insurers, very few drivers are identical. Even those drivers who are virtually indistinguishable may be asked to pay different rates on their car insurance policies based on small or esoteric differences in their driver profiles. For instance, two demographically-identical drivers might pay different rates on the same policy thanks to one driver s long relationship with the policy s issuer. As a new customer, the second driver might not qualify for a loyalty discount or another similar promotion.

    Regardless of where he or she secures his or her auto insurance policy. a 17-year-old driver must be prepared to pay above-average monthly premiums. This is due to several interrelated factors. First, 17-year-old drivers tend to be reckless and impulsive. Teenage drivers are involved in serious car accidents with far greater frequency than their older counterparts. Once a driver turns 25, his or her chances of being involved in such an accident begin to drop precipitously.

    For drivers who remain in high school, the accident rate is frighteningly high. Although the ongoing imposition of graduated-licensing programs appears to be cutting down on the incidence of dangerous late-night and impairment-related crashes among teenage drivers, the rate is still far too high. Mounting scientific evidence suggests that teenage drivers are simply hard-wired for recklessness.

    In addition to their propensity for recklessness, teenage drivers are clearly less experienced than their older counterparts. Situations that would not prove particularly challenging for regular drivers might provide injurious or even fatal for teenage drivers. For instance, 17-year-olds may be unfamiliar with winter-driving protocols or fail to adhere to local restrictions against right turns at red lights.

    With these restrictions in mind, 17-year-old drivers who wish to purchase insurance may be able to cut down on their monthly premiums in several ways. For starters, most insurance companies offer safe driver discounts for individuals who remain accident-free for multiple years. Teenagers who avoid accidents can take advantage of these discounts. In addition, good student discounts might save academically-inclined teens as much as 25 percent per month. Finally, teenagers who remain listed on their parents policies without purchasing their own coverages might stand to save as much as $100 per month.

    Advantage of Travelling Around the World #cheap #car #rentals

    #travelling around the world

    Advantage of Travelling Around the World

    Travelling is a great thing to do, especially now. Summer is a good time of year to start a new adventure or see new parts of the world. But what exactly is travelling? Simply stated, travelling is a process of getting from one place to another.

    Most people travel as part of their daily routine, not only because it is enjoyable but also because it has a lot to offer. Are you familiar with the saying, “The world is a book; those who do not travel read only a page”?

    There are lots of places to explore in the world. Your travel doesn’t have to be limited to where you live or what you read in a book, there are lots of exciting places to experience in the real world. Travelling is worth every penny you will spend because memories last forever.

    There are many advantages to travelling around the world. Here are a few to think about:

    You will enjoy the Adventure

    The reason why many people travel is because they love an adventure. There are several different types of adventures to choose from when you travel. An example of this is travelling to different beaches; some people enjoy diving while others prefer surfing.

    Wherever you will go, you will make memories of your adventure which will last a lifetime. You can relive the enjoyment again and again as you look back on the great adventure you had when travelling.

    You get to know different People and Places

    The world contains lots of countries and not all people are the same. When travelling, you get the opportunity to meet different people from different places. In life, one of the most important social skills we learn is how to interact and communicate with people who are different than we are.

    All people have their own way of communicating, and not all ways are effective. Some people tend to have problems expressing themselves because their social abilities are not developed. Travelling and interacting with a variety of people can help build or improve social skills with very little effort.

    Not only does travelling improve communication skills, it can actually boost self-confidence, since ideas and opinions are able to be more clearly expressed, shared and understood.

    Getting accustomed to different cultures

    Different cultures exist everywhere. As a traveler, it’s your duty to respect the culture of the people you visit. Some places have more modern cultures while others have traditional beliefs and customs.

    Experiencing different cultures can also be enlightening and educational; many travelers look for places to visit whose cultures are different from their own. Learning about other’s lives and customs deepens our understanding of ourselves and of our world. It teaches us respect and is humbling in many cases.

    Learning the culture of different peoples can reveal how people see themselves in a group. Culture may be defined as a total way of life, created by a group of people.  It is then passed down from one generation to the next.

    You tend to see different places that you haven’t seen before

    For many people, the main reason for travelling is to see the world. Travelling can be a dream come true! It allows you to have adventures in new places and see things you never thought possible.


    Stress is a natural part of life; in fact it helps us to survive! But when we have too much stress in our lives, it can be dangerous to our health. Many things bring about stress: work, family, relationships, change in health. Even positive change brings on stress.

    There are lots of activities that can help reduce stress and tension. One way to reduce stress and anxiety is by relaxing or by doing activities you enjoy. Travelling can bring joy to life, especially in stressful times. It can be one of the best ways to remove stress, reduce tension and restore balance.

    Counseling Program #sarasota #academy #of #christian #counseling


    Counseling Program


    Entering into the ministry of counseling is a very important step. Why? Because in counseling, one is dealing with the emotions and personal affairs of others. Counseling is a ministry that comes with a lot of responsibility, and limitless possibilities. Therefore, it behooves us to not come into this ministry half-heartedly and, consequently, possibly cause more harm than good.

    Many counselors (Christian and non-Christian) have completed secular counseling training programs. Few of them are even aware of the field of Christian Counseling. Why should they even consider it? Because counseling, by itself, addresses the mental and emotional sides of an individual; whereas Christian Counseling also takes into consideration the spiritual well-being of an individual. In other words, Christian Counseling addresses the whole individual, and not certain parts. Therefore, a counselor who has been trained in a Christian Counseling program has a much greater responsibility to and for the individuals they counsel, as opposed to a counselor who has only been trained in a secular counseling program.

    Though a counselor s training is very important, it is not the only aspect a counselor should consider when entering the Christian Counseling ministry. Below are just a few of the aspects that an individual should consider before making a final decision to enter into the Christian Counseling ministry:

    One must know that he/she has been called, anointed, and appointed by God to be a Christian Counselor.

    One must understand the responsibility and accountability one has to others in the Christian Counseling Ministry.

    One must comprehend the legal implications of one s counseling, training, and research.

    One must be familiar with the social and cultural issues that one will address in their counseling ministry.

    The Christian Counseling program offered by the University of Family Bible addresses the whole individual. The program is designed to train and equip individuals to become certified and/or licensed temperament, as well as Christian and Pastoral counselors. Additionally, Master s and Doctorate degree programs are available.

    Sarasota Academy Of Christian Counseling (S.A.C.C.)

    Many pastors and lay-persons have a heart for counseling, and the opportunity to enhance their vital counseling skills that will help them minister to their congregation members, friends, and the public at large is currently available. When they counsel, they want to know that they will make a difference.

    The Sarasota Academy of Christian Counseling of Sarasota, Florida, was established by Drs. Richard and Phyllis Arno in order to meet the growing need of individuals desiring to obtain counseling skills that, when applied, will make a difference. Drs. Arno understands the fact that we are fearfully and wonderfully made by our God who created the heavens and the earth, and we are very special and unique. In light of this fact, they have designed Creation Therapy Counseling Program – the key that will give you a better understanding of this uniqueness. It will help you to understand why people do the things they do and act the way they act.

    Creation Therapy is a new approach to counseling that deals with the inner man rather than outer manifestations or problems. Creation Therapy will teach you how to identify the hidden problems and how to counsel those who turn to you for help.

    Creation Therapy works when other counseling methods fail because rather than spending session after session in an attempt to correct symptoms, the counselor follows a step-by-step counseling procedure developed to target the source of the problem(s). Creation Therapy, utilizing the Arno Profile System, is also successful because it provides the counselee with a session-by-session plan so they will know, in advance, what to expect at each session. Providing the counselee with a plan of action cuts down on cancellations because it removes the fear of the unknown. In addition, it provides an immediate sense of stability and renewed hope that There is a plan. A course of action has been developed. Everything is going to be okay.

    University of Family Bible is offering the CREATION THERAPY COUNSELING PROGRAM.

    Completion of the Creation Therapy Counseling Program provides the student with the skills and benefits to: identify individual temperament needs, determine temperament perfections and imperfections, identify what causes relationship conflicts and how to resolve them, implement a successful five-step method for counseling, understand the benefits of the Arno Profile System, and certification to administer the A.P.S.

    Persons who successfully complete the program qualify for membership in the S.A.C.C. Being a member of the S.A.C.C. provides authorization to administer and use the APS. Membership categories offered by the S.A.C.C. include:

    Certified Member. Non-clergy
    Certified Pastoral Member. Clergy

    Individuals who have successfully completed the Creation Therapy program are eligible, through Family Bible s University and the National Christian Counselors Association, to pursue degrees and licensing in Christian and/or Pastoral Counseling.

This organization has certification options in housekeeping, sales, food and beverage, human resources, front office, security, revenue management, and maintenance. A series of education and experience requirements must be met to earn a designation.

    What is the average monthly cost of car insurance? #average #cost


    Average Monthly Car Insurance Cost

    Here’s what you need to know.

    • The average car insurance rates will depend on a variety of factors that includes both personal and public factors
    • Finding the average car insurance rates can be done easily through an online web search
    • Remember that there are ways to lower your insurance rate including searching for discounts and driving well

    The average cost of car insurance per month depends on a number of factors. The average rate of premiums for a man in Wisconsin might not be the same as the average rate for a woman in Texas .

    If you compare the averages for the past few years, you will see that the price is gradually going up.

    There are many reasons for this increase in auto insurance premiums. Inflation, a general increase in the youth population, and of course, brand new cars all contribute to the cost of insurance.

    If you want to get better than average car insurance rates, do a little comparison shopping among multiple car insurance companies.

    Where can I look for the average car insurance rates?

    One of the best tools you have at your fingertips in regards to finding statistics for average insurance rates is the Internet. You can find out just about anything these days just by using your computer.

    You can do a general search for average car insurance rates by using the search engines such as Google and Bing .

    You find a number of articles and websites that you can visit that will give you average costs for the past and current years.

    You can also visit the Insurance Information Institute, which is a website dedicated to informing the public about the insurance industry.

    If you visit the III s Insurance Fact Book. you will have the option to purchase the guide, which includes a number of figures and facts, including the average premiums for car insurance.

    If you are debating between two or three car insurance companies, you may want to just call each of them and ask what their average premium is on a yearly basis.

    You can also talk with your family members and friends and ask what they pay for their insurance premiums in order to get an average that way.

    Factors That Play a Part in Auto Insurance Premiums

    There are actually several factors that insurance companies consider when evaluating your rates.

    The average is the price insurance companies base their suggested price on.

    They consider the average person in your situation and the risks associated with his/her driving. You will have to pay a premium partially calculated on the state average and regional average.

    You will pay a premium partially calculated on your age group average.

    Circumstances You Can Control

    Pursuing a higher education can save on your premiums as, statistically, educated drivers take fewer risks on the road.

    Similarly, people with good credit score statistically drive safer than people who have poor credit scores.

    The insurance companies figure that you, as an educated or financially cautious individual, will drive safely like all the others.

    Your occupation and the driving distance to your job are two important, controllable factors.

    The insurance company considers the total number of miles driven each year.

    If you are hoping to decrease your insurance premiums, you could start taking the bus or carpooling to work, or stop frequently driving your work vehicle.

    Battling the Average

    Though you contend with the average premium rate for your state and city, there are measures you can take to pay a below average rate.

    You can look into multiple car or multiple-policy discounts, or you can drop comprehensive or collision damage and simply pay for liability insurance.

    Remember, the averages compiled for each state are based on full coverage contracts that includeliability, comprehensive and collision.

    If you take definite steps to decrease your personal and the insurance company’s risk, you can enjoy a much greater discount than the average person.

    In the meantime, you can search for comparable insurance quotes online and get a rough estimate of what you might be paying for car insurance based on your basic demographics.
