Laundry Savings

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

According to the makers of Tide, American families wash 300-390 loads of laundry a year—that’s nearly a load a day! If you’re single that number is probably drastically lower, but all the same, there are ways to save on the costs it take to wash your clothing. If you’re like many Americans, you don’t have much say in the appliances responsible for doing your laundry—many homes and rentals are already accompanied by their washer and dryer. There are a number of eco-friendly washers and dryers that promise to save you money on your utility bills by using water and electricity more efficiently. There are also soap concentrates you can dilute at home. Those options are called High-efficiency washer and are well accompanied by using less detergent. By hanging up your clothes immediately you can save on the amount of time and energy you spend ironing. Always be sure to clean the dyer’s lint filter, this was ensure a safer flow of air (thus preventing fires) and will dry clothes more efficiently. You can invest in a drying rack or dry your clothes without heat by using clothespins (this is a great tactic for the summer time!). Over half of the…

Bill Gate’s Favorite Books

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

Bill Gates let us into his favorite list from 2016 and I have reproduced that list here courtesy of CNBC. According to this article Gates goes though fifty books a year as they are his favorite way to learn about a new topic. This makes sense as there are a number of levels (beginner, intermediate, expert) in order to learn something. You can start from the bottom, with the basics and work your way up. In Gates’ blog there are four of his favorite books from 2016 as well as an honorable mention. The books are “String Theory” by Foster Wallace which he gives a detailed review of. There is also the memoir by Phil Knight who is the co-founder of Nike and serves a detailed description of his experience in the business world. Another is The Gene by Siddhartha Mukherjee who is a cancer physician and assistant professor at Columbia—despite his credentials Gates says it is written in layman’s terms because genes affect everyone. “The Myth of the Strong Leader” by Archie Brown is next on the list because in the midst of the 2016 elections, Gates wanted to explore the history and misconceptions of political leadership. No one…

Chinese New Year

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

The largest annual human migration is due to millions of people going to celebrate the advent of a new year—not to New York, but to China! The date of the Chinese New Year varies, because it goes with the lunar calendar. It is a fifteen day celebration that is recognized around the world—not just in China! It starts on the new moon and ends with the full moon on the last day for the Lantern Festival. 2019 represents the Year of the of and celebrations will officially begin  on February 5th. For Chinese astrology, each year is symbolized by one of twelve animals and rotates continually. In contemporary China, the New Year is referred to as the Spring Festival, but is just one of several lunar new years in Asia annually. And often represents the start of a new animal’s zodiac year. One sixth of the globe celebrates the Chinese New Year. Most employees have 7-12 days off of work and students have one month of winter vacation. The number of people travelling by bus, plane, or train can be as high as 3 billion to unite with loved ones. Similar to the large number of people who tune in…

Black History Month

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

Black History month Is February of every year and serves as a 28-day long commemoration of the contribution of African Americans and their history to civilization. It began in the twentieth century when activists on the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (now called the Association for the Study of African American Life and History) held their first “Negro History Week “in February of 1926. This organization was founded by Carter G. Woodson, who was a Harvard historian and believed that truth and reason would prevail in the face of prejudice. When he died twenty four years later, this week was a central part of the lives of African Americans and there were many people who came to appreciate the progress made in acknowledging the contributions and achievements Black people had in America. By the time the 1960’s rolled around and the Civil Rights movement ensued, people of all races and statues (even mayors) began celebrating Black history and culture. It wasn’t until 1976 that this celebration was expanded to a month when President Gerald R. Ford told Americans to, “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor…

Chesapeake Bay Foundation

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is an organization that is aimed at maintaining healthy living environment for all the inhabitants of the bay and its surrounding marshy areas. This depends on the work of many volunteers who go out to the field and screen the soil as well as take samples of the water. This area is important as it is the area where the mainland fresh waters meet the ocean. As you can see this involves a network of rivers that flow into their area amounting to a watershed region of about 64,000 square feet! That reaches all the way from southern Virginia to New York and as westward as West Virginia and Pennsylvania. According to their website, this region is home to approximately eighteen million people. If nothing else, it’s important to keep this region clean for selfish reason as every year about 500 million pounds of seafood is produced from the Bay. There are a number of issues associated with the efforts being made to keep this area healthy. There is not only water pollution but air pollution as well. Land usage, deforestation, climate change, and chemical contamination are just a few of the issues mentioned on their…

Matriarchy

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

Far more people are familiar with the term and concept of patriarchy than they are matriarchy and its due to modern widespread of patriarchy in practice. However, there is archaeological evidence (such as statues of Venus for example) that matriarchies existed for centuries and women were praised for their ability to bear children. It’s a concept that is not strictly concerned with the dynamics of power, although that is a layer of it. A matriarchal society is not only one that is governed by women, but one where lineage or heritage is traced through women (also known as matrilineal societies). In some matrilineal societies, upon marriage, the wife’s brother holds jurisdiction over domestic matters. International Women’s Day falls on March 8th every year. To commemorate it’s 2018 celebration, A British online newspaper called The Independent, published an article describing several examples of contemporary matriarchies around the world. That’s right, they don’t just exist in the myths of the Amazonians and Wonder Woman! Places such as Mosuo, China actually don’t have words that translate to “father” or “husband.” The largest known matriarchal society is in Minangkabau, Indonesia where the population is over four million. There are actually micro-societies within the United…

Vocabulary

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

Having a good vocabulary isn’t just for authors or people trying to ace standardized tests. Having the ability to accurately articulate your thoughts and emotions is a skill set with utility beyond measure. Words are not arbitrary. They are specific and used to match sachems and concepts in our brains. They can pinpoint ideas and fabricate the most elaborate tales. They can mold entire cultures and separate civilizations. Adjectives especially, I find, are some of the most specific words in the English language and the vivid imagery that accompanies their usage is the basis on which story telling withstands the test of time. It’s how history is shared generationally. You also have to understand that people may assign meaning to words in a way that is not necessarily consistent with the dictionary or “textbook definition.” That is the difference between a word’s connotation and its denotation. A common example of this duality of words includes house vs. home or childish vs. childlike or youthful. The words share the same denotation (dictionary definition, which I remember because dictionary and denotation both start with “d”) but have different connotations (or social understandings/concepts, which I am able to remember because connotation and concept…

Earnin’

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

There’s a new and upcoming application that advertises it will give you an advance on your paycheck without any fees or interest. When I saw the commercial I was skeptical and apprehensive. Actually, I couldn’t believe it so I decided to look it up and read some reviews. Rather than ask for a fee or charge interest the application operates on a more of a good samaritan code as it allows you to optionally tip. It works by tracking how often you work and tracking your wages. It’s main marketing message is that you’ve already earned your wages and there is no need to wait until payday. The daily withdrawal limits are entirely dependent on your income and the funds will automatically be withdrawn using your checking account and an estimate of when you get paid. The only downsides that come to mind are the fact that you will be tracked in order to verify you are earning your wages. Additionally, there is a great deal of personal information required for the application to run effectively. As always, if you need cash fast Fast Cash has your back. Come by and ask about your situation today! We’re happy to help….

Video Games and Virtual Reality

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

The video game industry entered the world of three dimensions with the advent of reality simulators becoming more readily available to everyday consumers. Augmented reality and virtual reality are different and should not be used interchangeably. Virtual reality requires a designated separate space where the projections may take place, such as the high tech training provided for professionals in flight or fight simulations. Typically these sort of games and simulations will require specific headsets making the technology inherently more expensive. Though it requires a bit more programming, augmented reality games do not typically require a separate headset, though some do. Think Pokémon Go, the game that took over the world in summer of 2015. People’s neighborhoods were turned into arenas for their enjoyment using GPS software. Augmented reality uses a pre existing environment requiring less equipment and therefore less capital investment. People were able to play on the devices they already owned (smartphones) which makes it far more accessible compared to the CR headset required to play similar games on the PlayStation. The impact of augmented reality is not limited to video games. Imagine furnishing your home using augmented reality or visiting a museum with information overlay with just a…
