Here’s the amazing thing: That’s all true, but there’s still so much more. One of its most amazing aspects is its ability to balance your blood sugar levels. • Seven study participants who consumed a little bit of apple cider vinegar with cheese as a pre-bedtime snack woke up the next day with significantly lower levels of blood glucose

people living in the country have high levels of sugar in the United States. Blood or diabetes. That is a breakthrough from the projection made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2010, which said that by 2050 1 in 3 people would suffer these problems. Worse, half the people who suffer from them are not even aware of it. According to CNN Health, these results were no accident; The benefits of apple cider vinegar in different types of health problems have been proven in a large number of studies.

Who WE ARE Note from the Publisher’s Desk Dear Readers, Local Community Heroes – Héroes de la Comunidad(LCHP) was created for two great purposes: 1.) to celebrate local inspiring teachers and students 2.) to provide scholarship funds for college bound students. Students achieving best grades, best attendance, best in a sport; or those considered most improved or most giving will be featured on the front cover. I hope this will get more students and parents involved with local education and play bigger roles in the betterment of the San Jose community. Also, I hope to encourage and inspire other students and teachers to be like the individuals featured on the cover.

Local Community Heroes (LCHP) will donate 5% or more of its revenue each year to participating schools, to benefit the school or a particular classroom. LCHP is working with small, medium and large businesses in the community to provide scholarship funds for College Bound students, starting 2017. LCHP is not only for students and teachers. It is also designed to promote local “Unsung Heroes” and “Hidden Heroes” within our community. Also, local authors, artists, musicians and bands will be highlighted. We would like to promote these individuals and their stories to other citizens of Silicon Valley...and to the nation. We encourage readers to reach out to the editor to celebrate these local individuals. Write to us at Editor@LocalCommunityHeroes.com

Quienes SOMOS Nota del escritorio del editor Queridos lectores, Héroes de la Comunidad (LCHP) fue creado para dos grandes propósitos: 1.) celebrar a los maestros y estudiantes locales inspiradores 2.) proveer fondos de becas para estudiantes universitarios. Estudiantes que logran las mejores calificaciones, mejor asistencia, mejor en un deporte; O aquellas consideradas como las más mejoradas o las que más se darán aparecerán en la portada. Espero que esto haga que más estudiantes y padres participen con la educación local y jueguen papeles más grandes en el mejoramiento de la comunidad de San José. Además, espero animar e inspirar a otros estudiantes y maestros a ser como los individuos que aparecen en la portada.

Los Héroes de la Comunidad Local (LCHP, por sus siglas en inglés) donarán el 5% o más de sus ingresos cada año a las escuelas participantes, para beneficiar a la escuela oa una clase en particular. LCHP está trabajando con pequeñas, medianas y grandes empresas en la comunidad para proporcionar fondos de becas para los estudiantes College Bound, a partir de 2017. LCHP no es sólo para estudiantes y maestros. También está diseñado para promover “Héroes Unsung” locales y “Héroes ocultos” dentro de nuestra comunidad. También se destacarán autores locales, artistas, músicos y bandas. Nos gustaría promover estos individuos y sus historias a otros ciudadanos de Silicon Valley ... ya la nación. Animamos a los lectores a que se dirijan al editor para celebrar a estos individuos locales. Escríbanos a Editor@LocalCommunityHeroes.com

Preparation Requirements for First time

Home Buyers

Preparing to buy a home is crucial to success and satisfaction, and it is required to prepare for home buyers in all programs for the first time home purchase.

Step 4:

Steps to follow to own a

Make a list of the things you will need to have in the house, and a list of things you will want. Ask yourself how many bedrooms and bathrooms you will need and think about how much space you want to have. How big do you want the kitchen to be? How many closets and cabinet space do you need? Do you need a large garden for your children or pets to play?

Step 1: It is important to be informed so that you know the funding options and eligibility requirements of housing finance agencies. Most people have to borrow for a home. This type of home loan is called first mortgage. There are also mortgages that can help you with the down payment or closing costs, which are called second mortgages. It is important to seek information with several specialists so you can have a better idea and choose the one that best suits you, a single consultant does not always have the best solution.

Set your needs and what you want.

Once you have the list of what you need, do not forget to think about what kind of neighborhood you want to live in, the schools that are in the area, the availability of public transportation, the time to get to work and what you should buy in The establishments nearby. Take safety into account and how good the surplus value of houses in the area is.

Step 5:

Step 2 :

Start looking for a house.

Once you have seen the options of companies that can provide you with a loan, call the lender that you trust or comfort gave you and obtain prior approval for the loan amount.

This is the time to look for a real estate agent. A real estate agent will help you find a home within your budget and make an offer for it. They will also have information about sample houses and will help you with most of the paperwork for the purchase of the house

After deciding if you are eligible for a home loan, the next step is to talk to a lender to get prior approval. This will determine the amount of loan money to buy your home. You can also use a Prequalification Calculator to get an idea of your financial situation before contacting a lender.

Step 3 : Attend a homebuyer course if you buy a home for the first time. If you buy a home for the first time, and have obtained prior approval, you must attend a homebuyer course. This course will help you understand the importance and responsibilities of owning your own home.

ONLINE: you can take the eight-hour online course eHome Homebuyer Education (Cost: $ 50) PRESENT: You can take the Homebuyer Education classroom course, taught by NeighborWorks America or a HUD-approved agency (Cost: varies by agency)

Once you have found a home that meets most of your needs and that is within your budget, make an offer through your real estate agent. If they accept your offer, congratulations! If you do not accept it, do not be discouraged and do not feel pressured to make an offer out of your budget; There are other houses waiting for their ideal owner.
