I have a Caucasian U.S. born friend who is working a skilled trade “under the table”. His Boss often does not pay him. My friend and his girlfriend are homeless. When he does get some cash for the work he performs, it’s not the full pay. Sometimes they are lucky enough to stay at a motel a few nights. My friend also owes Child Support and is afraid if working a regular job, half his pay-check will be “taken away” and he will be homeless anyway! WHAT SHOULD HE DO?
Whether you like it or not, money is a part of your daily life. Not thinking about your finances will not make this fact disappear. Read on for some ideas for getting your finances back on track.
You should be able to devise a budget based on your income and expenses. Look at how much you and your partner earn after taxes each month. Make sure you include all source of income, including income from rental properties, full-time jobs and part-time jobs. After you have determined what your total income is, thoroughly compile a list of expenses, and make sure that your total expenses does not exceed income.
An American guy suffered a serious heart attack and had an open heart bypass surgery. He awakened from the surgery to find himself in the care of nuns at a Catholic Hospital.
As he was recovering, a nun asked him questions regarding how he was going to pay for his treatment. She asked if he had health insurance.
He replied, in a raspy voice, “No health insurance.”
The nun asked if he had money in the bank. He replied, “No money in the bank.”
The nun asked, “Do you have a relative who could help you?”
To make a long story short….I’m interviewing for a new job that offers several health care plans that would cost hundreds of dollars each month. I am a recent graduate living with my parents who have excellent health insurance and encourage me to stay on their plan as they are already paying for me to be on it. I also see a specialist for some minor issues, so switching insurance would also force me to find a new doctor and I’m not sure if it would be covered. I want to be independent, but this is an entry-level position and I really don’t want to pay for something somebody is already willingly covering for me.
I’m majoring in social working but I’m having some doubts. I don’t know how much the salary is because I get all different answers when I try looking it up. Is there anyone that is a social worker or knows the profession well enough to explain the pros & cons to me? I just wanted to know about the different areas I can specialize in and the difference in salary and fields of social working with a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree. If anyone could please just explain these few things to me I’d appreciate it greatly! thank you!
Any insurance broker who’s still in business after almost five years of financial crisis should congratulate themselves. But with the weaker players out of the running and the economy basically flat, the market is now more competitive than ever. Achieving organic growth means holding fast to existing clients while they are bombarded with better offers, while pulling in new ones from rivals who are clinging on just as tenaciously as you, something one broker compared to Olympic track cycling: you have to get everything right to be successful. In this article for Insurance Times, I looked at the best growth strategies for the months ahead, and at how brokers can transform themselves from passive “farmers” into efficient “hunters” , ruthlessly pursuing new business, eliminating distractions and cutting timewasters loose. One of the keys is specialising in niche areas, whatever they may be – it’s much easier to get everything right when you’re only trying to do one thing.
Almost three years ago, when Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) paid $550 million to settle fraud accusations by the Securities and Exchange Commission, one of the claims was that Goldman misled the bond-insurer ACA Financial Guaranty Corp. in a horribly …

Then you will say its TOO EXPENSIVE I cant afford that!
But it wont be the insurance companies fault anymore will it?
So is the insurance companies really the problem here? Or the high cost of health care?
What is Obama going to do to lower the COSTS? My guess is nothing besides blaming it on the insurance companies.
There are all these Tonys of the world:
Italian, Greek, Portuguese, Lebanese, Eastern European,
who own sewing-machine shops, grocery stores,
corner cafés and sometimes sell insurance.
Anthony, Antonin, Antonio and the more Teutonic, Anton.
But Anton was the opera singer
after he’d worked for a while
on the railway.
