3 Ways to Save Your Relationship

Every relationship has its own "nook." You know, that intimate place of physical and emotional security, warmth and abundant joy that envelopes you and your partner when all is harmonious in your relationship. In the nook, forgiveness abounds, passion ignites and individual attributes merge into mutually-accepted opinions, interests and ambitions. When you're in the nook, nothing can shake your relationship's strong, solid foundation. Unfortunately, when you're out of the nook, the door to break-up, separation and divorce blows wide open. Not to mention heartbreak, longing, isolation and the abrupt appearance of three vocabulary words best left lying quietly in a closed dictionary: shoulda, woulda and couda.
Are you slowly and steadily slipping out of your relationship's nook? Do you feel disconnected from your partner? Alone? Ignored? Scared? But most of all - still in love and willing to do anything to fight for that love? If you've decided that your rel…

Quality Education Vs Accreditation

Education:
"The act or process of educating or being educated; the knowledge or skill obtained or developed by a learning process!"
Inquiries into furthering my educational aspirations were made to various colleges within my immediate environmental area. Several of the schools contacted required placement exams that I did not challenge, as I am adept and very capable of dealing with college examinations. The thing that got to me was the disparaging remarks from some college recruiters regarding their standards for education as opposed to another college. One of the schools that I've attended is a two-year degree school while the other is as well. They hold real estate in the same zip code and competed for students in the same local. They both educated local students as well as out of state and students from other countries and nations.
One school considered itself superior to the other by reason of accreditation. The school that was described as inferior did not have mi…

Immortalizing Values Through Education for Sustainable Development

Education is the primary agent of transformation towards sustainable development, increasing people's capacities to transform their visions for society into reality. Education not only provides scientific and technical skills, it also provides the motivation, and social support for pursuing and applying them. For this reason, society must be deeply concerned that much of current education falls far short of what is required. When we say this, it reflects the very necessities across the cultures that allow everyone become responsible towards quality enhancement.
Improving the quality and revelation of education and reorienting its goals to recognize the importance of sustainable development must be among society's highest priorities. It is not that we talk only about environment but also about every component of life.
We therefore need to clarify the concept of education for sustainable development. It was a major challenge for educators during the last decade. The meanings of…

How Some Life Insurance Policies Fail and Leave Grieving Families to Struggle Financially

Many people own life insurance, but let's face it. It's probably not a purchase that most people brag about to their friends like they might if they had just purchased a new Corvette, but they made the purchase anyway because they love their families and want their family to carry on living their current lifestyle in the event of the primary breadwinner's untimely death. While this article doesn't apply to people who own term insurance, those who bought permanent life insurance, which is life insurance with an additional savings component, will find this information very important.

To understand the problem, I will first give you a brief primer on life insurance, and then explain how something that seems like a sure bet can go so wrong. Life insurance can be separated in to two basic types, term and permanent life insurance. With term insurance a person pays a certain amount of money, called a premium, for a period of time, from one year up to 30 years. During the spe…

Insurance Agents Name Choices - Insurance Specialist, Financial Planner, or Life Advisor?

Are you one of the plain insurance agents? Agents often prefer to upgrade their title as an insurance specialist or financial advisor on their business card. Names like life advisor reflect positive experience and knowledge. Which of these different terms distinguishes you from being just one of the insurance agents? Here are 101 top choices to pick from.

There is a lot more to a name then may realize. Calling yourself an agent or sales agent makes you sound run of the mill. It also projects the sound of a salesman trying to sell you something.

This is why in this list of different terms you will see how high words like specialist, expert, and professional rank. The prospect gets a completely new perspective, just by the title you give yourself! Prospects closely take notice when an agent jointly works with them in reaching a decision on what is the best plan of action. Prospective clients want to feel…

Insurance Appraisal Process - A Policyholder's Best Chance to Resolve an Insurance Claim Dispute!

Many homeowners and business owners find themselves disagreeing with their insurance company's analysis of their insurance claim. However, most are unaware that they can dispute the insurance company's findings via the insurance appraisal process! Even though the policyholder (you) submits a contractor's estimate, receipts for repairs or materials, or even photos showing damages that the insurance company did not include for repairs... they still won't budge.

Most policyholders are unaware of how to dispute and resolve their claim with the insurance company. Policyholders have a choice and a voice within their policy for this very purpose. It's called The Appraisal Clause - also know as The Appraisal Provision. Now, don't let this scare you. It may seem like a fancy clause that would take a law degree to understand. However, a simple way to understand it is that it's the insurance industry's version of arbitration. Although similar, the Appraisal Proce…

Free Insurance Quotes - Cheap and Simple Way to Manage Our Savings

Have you checked your insurance for better insurance rate quotes lately? Many people ignore this just because they don't want to go through all the troubles looking for insurance rate information or comparing rates, and decide to stick with the old companies which they think have already given them the best rates and coverage even if the rates are raised by the companies. If that is what happen, they might have missed the chance of getting better rates and coverage offered by other insurance companies on the market.
In every insurance company, insurance rate is dynamically changed through time. There are so many aspects that can influence the rate changing whether it is an external or internal factor.
Government rules and policies, political and economic situation, business atmosphere such as number of competitors, or even a natural disaster could be considered as external factors that give effect to an insurance rate as well as the coverage. For example when the political situat…

Advantages and Disadvantages on Group Health Insurance VS Individual Health Insurance

In this article we will explore the reasons that motivate employers to get group health insurance for employees and we will look at the advantages and disadvantages from both points of view.

Group Health Insurance VS Individual Private Health Insurance

Probably the most significant distinguishing characteristic of group insurance is the substitution of group underwriting for individual underwriting. In group cases, no individual evidence of insurability is usually required, and benefit levels can be substantial, with few, if any, important limitations.

Group underwriting normally is not concerned with the health or other insurability aspects of any particular individual. Instead, it aims to obtain a group of individual lives or, what is even more important, an aggregation of such groups of lives that will yield a predictable rate of mortality or morbidity. If a sufficient number of groups of lives is obtained, and if these groups are reasonably homogeneous in nature, then the mortali…
