Saving For College: Seven Super Budget Tips
earning how to create a budget—and stick to it—is vital to proper money management. Techniques will differ. Some people like to jot income and expenses down on paper. Others keep a sophisticated budget spreadsheet, while others prefer using a free, online budget planner that does most of the work for them. Experts acknowledge there isn’t a single “right way” to budget your money. What does matter is to pick a method that makes sense to you and that you will stick with. Designing and sticking to a budget can help you pay down debts and save for the future. “If you are ready to make earning your degree a top priority, of course paying for it is going to be a concern,” said Dr. Mary Hawkins, president of Bellevue University. “By freeing up funds through debt reduction or reallocating from areas where you may be overspending, you can begin saving for your education.” Hawkins’ budget-planning tips include: 1. Keep the essentials within budget. Food, gas and toiletries are necessities, so it is easy to pick up everything you need without thinking about the total. Even with these items, you need to stick to the budget you have planned. If you are finding this difficult, carry the amount in cash so you cannot overspend on your debit or credit card. 2. Make all your payments on time. Skipping payments results in late fees, which will only push you deeper and deeper into a financial hole. 3. Live within your means. This sounds simple, but many people do not realize how much they are spending until they write it down or type it out. As painful as it may be, if you find you are spending more every month or paycheck than you are bringing in, you will need to make some changes. This may mean finding an additional source of income or reducing spending in some areas. 4. Find free offers. There are a wealth of websites and blogs out there

devoted to listing free offers—these range from samples to full-size products. 5. Continue to learn. Financial sites such as bankrate.com provide advice on the issues you face as you plan and live by your budget. Educationspecific sites like makeithappennow.org provide more advice on paying for your degree. 6. Research your options. Many schools have thousands of scholarship dollars that go unused because students don’t take the time to apply. Also check with your employer. A growing number of employers are offering education benefits. 7. Evaluate the plan. Unexpected and periodic expenses (like holidays or car taxes) are inevitable. With each paycheck, re-evaluate the plan to see if it is still the best route or if adjustments need to be made. Be sure to do this before the money is in the bank, as it is tempting to spend irresponsibly if the plan is not established. Every person must follow his or her own path to education. Perhaps you will save for a long time and complete your degree all at once, or maybe you will pay for one class at a time as your savings accumulate. Regardless of how you get there or what budget-planning method you use, planning and diligence can keep you on the right path. - (NAPSI)
Preparation For Icy Weather: More Critical Than Ever W
e’ve already seen some of the effects of severe winter weather this year and with more expected to come, taking action now may minimize the harsh effects on your family, possessions and property. “Recent studies indicate total losses during the last 50 years have totaled over $35.2 billion due to winter storms,” says Karen McCague, claims operations manager, Liberty Mutual Insurance. “Ensuring adequate preparation for blizzards, high winds, ice, hail, sleet and heavy snow conditions will minimize your chances of experiencing significant losses due to inclement winter weather this year.” McCague recommends following what she calls “The Three Ps of Preparation” to ensure safety of people, property and possessions. When a storm strikes, you and your family may need to remain indoors
for several days. Prepare a safety kit and educate your family to ensure everyone understands what steps to follow during severe weather. Also, ensure driveways and walkways are clear of ice to prevent slippery conditions, which could result in injury. There are several steps you can take to prepare your property as well. Insulating pipes prevents freezing and bursting. Cleaning gutters regularly prevents formation of ice dams, which can result in water damage. It is also important to check the structural integrity of your home’s roof and ensure that carbon monoxide and smoke detectors function properly. Finally, remember to prepare your vehicle by keeping your gas tank and antifreeze reservoir full. It is also important to ensure there are plenty of blankets, extra clothes, and fuel to operate a generator or portable heating device. - (NAPSI)

Did you know: 1. Arikok National Park is home to many hidden beaches, wild flora and fauna, geology and historical cave paintings. Near the Fontein Cave and Blue Lagoon, rocky cliffs and crashing waves mark Boca Prins. Nearby, Dos Playa is a surfer’s haven. 2.

Known in Papiamento as “Conchi,” this shell-shaped pool is surrounded by large lava rocks that greet crashing waves.
3. Celebrating its 10th anniversary as Aruba’s official language in May 2013, Papiamento is a direct reflection of the island’s diverse history and culture. Papiamento is a Creole language derived from African dialects and blended with
English, Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese. 4. Home to 90-plus nationalities, Aruba offers a wide array of authentic, flavor-rich dishes including local favorites keshi yena, funchi and pan bati. 5. Visitors and locals alike enjoy a weekly Carnival celebration every Thursday evening at Carubbian Festival in San Nicolas, the Sunrise City.

Marilyn Carlson Nelson to Speak at the International Tour Managment Institute (ITMI) Symposium on January 30th in Albuquerque International Tour Management Institute (ITMI), America’s premier training and certification program for professional tour directors and guides, is the first tourism school to integrate human trafficking awareness training into its curriculum. On January 30th 2013, ITMI will become a signatory to the travel industry’s international Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism. ITMI is proud to announce that Marilyn Carlson Nelson, chairman and former CEO of Carlson, which includes Radisson and Radisson Blu Hotels, Country Inns & Suites, Carlson Wagonlit Travel and T.G. I. Friday’s, will be speaking at its Code signing ceremony in Albuquerque. In 2004, Ms. Nelson co-chaired the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. That year, she also signed the travel industry’s Code of Conduct to prevent the sexual exploitation of children in tourism, making Carlson the first U.S.-based, global travel and hospitality company to become a signatory. Ms. Nelson is the former chair of the U.S. Travel and Tourism Advisory Board and the 2010 recipient of the United Nations G.I.F.T. “Business Leader Award” to prevent human trafficking.
“The travel and hospitality industry is in a unique position to address this problem and we all have a responsibility to do so,” says Ms. Nelson. Carlson’s more than 170,000 employees in 150 countries receive training to deter the sexual exploitation of children in tourism. Front desk hotel employees, for example, are encouraged to look for visual clues like signs of abuse or fear among potential victims; young people made up to look older; and clients who pay with cash, are reluctant to provide identification or have no luggage. “As a leader in the education of tour directors, guides and tourism industry professionals it is our responsibility to provide our students and partners with the training to recognize and report potential traffickers,” said Ted Bravos, CEO of ITMI. “Tourism industry professionals can make a tremendous impact in helping to end this horrific crime.” About ITMI: Since 1976, ITMI has been America’s premier training and certification program for professional tour directors, guides and travel staff.

Mike “Coach K” Krzyzewski Shares Insight Into His Battle With Osteoarthritis A
t one point in his career, Mike “Coach K” Krzyzewski never thought he would see this moment. As the USA men’s basketball team stood on the podium to receive its 2012 Olympic gold medal, Coach K thought back to a more difficult time, when he was in constant pain.
results in swelling, pain and limited range of motion. Still, people wait up to 11 years before seeking hip and knee replacement surgery.*
The pain started in his groin and began to consume his daily life. As the men’s basketball coach at Duke University, he needed to support his team, actively running up and down the court. But his pain slowed him down and eventually caused him to coach from a sideline chair.
In an effort to encourage those suffering from severe joint pain to talk to their doctor about treatment options, Coach K teamed up with DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. to share his experience with osteoarthritis and hip replacement surgery. His story is part of the booklet “Had I Known Then,” edited by Ellyn Spragins, author of the best-selling “Letters to My Younger Self®” book series. “Had I Known Then” includes letters from joint replacement patients to their younger selves to provide encouragement and insight about their own experiences.
“I really came close to retiring from coaching because the pain was getting unbearable both on and off the court, despite daily medication and physical therapy,” said Coach K. “That ‘99 season could very well have been my last if I had not gotten help.” Coach K’s Journey To Hip Replacement He finally saw a doctor and found out the pain was caused by severe osteoarthritis in his left hip. In 1999, after consulting with an orthopaedic surgeon, he had his left hip replaced. A couple years later, when he experienced similar symptoms in his right hip, Coach K didn’t wait as long. He spoke with his orthopaedic surgeon right away and they decided to replace his right hip. Following both procedures, he underwent post-surgery rehabilitation to facilitate his recovery. But Coach K isn’t the only one who has had severe joint pain. In fact, one in five Americans suffers from a debilitating joint disease called osteoarthritis, a leading cause of disability in the U.S. Osteoarthritis begins with stiffness and pain from the affected joint and can eventually lead to long-term health problems if left untreated. The disease wears down the cartilage in the affected joints, which causes the bones to rub together and
Resource for Those Experiencing Severe Joint Pain
“With the benefit of hindsight, I realized that, for all those years when I was suffering from osteoarthritis, I was bringing other opponents to the basketball court—pain, fatigue, lack of movement—and that really limited my ability to be a good leader and coach. I was battling a lot of opponents, not just those on the court. I really wish I would have had my hip replaced sooner,” said Coach K. Through speaking with Coach K and others who suffered from osteoarthritis, Ellyn Spragins discovered that few people reflect on the impact their health has on their lives, even though physicality is intimately tied to emotional well-being. With this collection of letters, she hopes the booklet inspires people to learn from the examples of other joint replacement patients and consider the impact that arthritis pain is having on them and their families now and how treatment could affect the course of their lives.

Take Aim At Skin Imperfections
hen it comes to skincare, women and men are taking serious aim at enlarged pores.
“The obsession over pores has increased given the link between pore size and skin radiance. Everyone knows that the smaller the pore, the younger, tighter and healthier skin looks,” says board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jody Levine. While we can’t change our genes, Levine confirms there is hope for keeping enlarged pores at bay. “Properly caring for your skin and following a dedicated skincare regimen is a must in the battle against enlarged pores.” Pore size is exacerbated by dirt and oil—both of which lead to inflammation and acne—so keeping skin clean is essential. “Your skin needs to breathe, so remember to wash your face each morning and night to remove oils, makeup and so on,” she advises. “Avoid using harsh soaps on your face, as abrasive products can aggravate skin.” Dr. Levine recommends a targeted regimen from Algenist Skincare’s Multi-Perfecting Collection for the ongoing treatment of pores. “The Pore Corrector Concentrate is a must-have for tightening pores, reducing discoloration, smoothing roughness and refining skin texture.” Independent clinical testing found the product smooths skin texture by 24 percent and decreases pore size by 10 percent. --- (NAPSI)

Caution: Tablets At Work E
ntertaining as they are, tablet computers and smartphones are not all fun and games.
Consider this: With 75 percent of all workers involved in jobs that require mobility, handheld devices are playing an increasing role in business. In fact, according to The Mac Observer, 94 percent of Fortune 500 companies were either testing or deploying iPads for business use, while Forrester Research recently reported that 81 percent of companies have plans for tablet use and predicts 250 million tablets will be in employees’ hands by 2016.
Field staff and utility workers such as repair technicians use tablets for appointment information and access to diagrams and repair manuals. With all these tablets going to work, companies are scrambling for technology that protects their investments. iPads don’t do water. Nor do they do dirt, snow or shock. Whether out at a construction site with dust, shock and weather to contend with or in a classroom where accidental drops and sticky fingers can wreak havoc, businesses want their employees to be able to conduct “business as usual” without worrying about their investment going down the drain.
In addition to e-mail and Internet access, workers use tablets for specialized apps or for remote uses such as sales support and customer presentations. Across industries, executives are using them for management dashboards and project management apps.
Though there are ruggedized protective cases that allow tablets to withstand some calamities, they can be bulky and limit access to key tablet functions.
Health care offices are passing out tablets so patients can complete medical histories online. Hospitals use them for electronic record keeping, paperless prescriptions, diagnostic reports and teaching tools. EMTs and fire departments use tablets for real-time data to reduce risk, improve safety and support information sharing between agencies.
Now there’s an option to protect onthe-go workhorse tablets no matter where they are or what they are doing. Sleekly designed to add only a fraction of an inch to an Apple iPad, the LifeProof nüüd case protects against water, dirt, snow and shock-while maintaining access to all tablet functions. It gets its name from its unique design, which protects the tablet without covering up the screen.
Tablet use in education is also booming. According to one recent survey, 26 percent of teachers have access to tablet computers and 55 percent of administrators and 47 percent of principals have tablet access. Some school districts let students bring their own tablets to support classroom learning and bring textbooks to life.
Optional accessories include shoulder and hand straps, a floating LifeJacket and a cover that also functions as an adjustable stand for watching movies or typing. The company also has a line of protective cases for smartphones. (NAPSI)
A Financial Tool For Older Americans
eginning March 1, 2013, the U. S. Treasury will no longer issue paper checks for federal benefits, including Social Security, instead requiring recipients to switch to electronic payments. If beneficiaries do not set up their own electronic direct deposit to a bank account, they will receive their federal benefits on a prepaid card. To provide older Americans with more choices, AARP Foundation has endorsed a full-featured reloadable prepaid MasterCard® card from Green Dot Corporation designed to serve as a direct deposit option for government benefits and everyday use. Available online or at participating CVS/pharmacy, Rite Aid and Walgreens stores nationwide, the AARP Foundation
Prepaid MasterCard from Green Dot can be used everywhere Debit MasterCard is accepted, including to shop online. It does not require a credit check to sign up and never charges overdraft or low balance fees. There are no monthly service fees as long as the cardholder makes a direct deposit of at least $250 in that month. This amount is well below the average monthly Social Security benefits of $1,200 for a retired worker and $600 for spouses and children. Otherwise, the monthly fee is $5.95. Services on the card include an interest-bearing savings account, a nationwide ATM network with no withdrawal fees, a free online bill-paying service, and free paper statements upon request. The card and savings account are issued by The Bancorp Bank, Member FDIC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Bancorp, Inc. The Bancorp Bank; Member FDIC. “Social Security is a major income source for millions of older Americans,” said Jo Ann Jenkins, president, AARP Foundation. “The AARP Foundation Prepaid MasterCard from Green Dot provides a safe and reliable option to help them manage their finances and protect their benefits.” “This product is more than just a prepaid card for federal benefit recipients,” said Kostas Sgoutas, Green Dot’s Chief Revenue Officer. “It’s a convenient, low-cost option for older Americans that can also be reloaded with funds from other sources, such as a part-time job, or with cash.” (NAPSI)
