For Families,

Peace of Mind is PRICELESS

Family Features

A

merican families understand the impor­tance of protecting their assets and possessions. For a growing number of homeowners and renters, protec­tion plans provide peace of mind that their posses­sions can be repaired or replaced if the unexpected happens.

Protecting Your Possessions Whether you are a renter, a homeowner or are just living with one, it’s likely that you have pos­sessions that you care about. Extended service contracts can help you protect

your valu­able possessions from mechanical failure, break­age and other perils after the manufac­turer’s war­ranty expires. Gaming systems, televisions, smartphones, tablets, laptops and other electronics are now an important part of everyday life, and you don’t want to be without them for long. But when an electronic device gets damaged or simply breaks down, renters insurance won’t cover it, and the manufacturer’s warranty might not be enough to pay for repair or replacement. Many product warranties only cover parts and labor for up to 90 days after purchase. “If you’ve invested your hard-

earned money into an expensive electronic device, you want to know you can get it repaired quickly,” said Joe Erdeman, presi­ dent of a service protection business. “Extended service contracts provide important coverage for the items you just can’t live without.” An extended service contract provides for normal wear and tear as well as accidental damage, and provides additional coverage that your renters insurance won’t cover. You get 24/7 customer and technical support, coverage for 100 percent of the parts and labor cost, and assistance from licensed and insured

Everyone is born with about 100 billion brain cells. We form new connections between these cells throughout life, but the rate is particularly high when we’re young. Since those connections facilitate thinking and learning, parents who want to help give their children an intellectual edge should consider the brain-healthy choices they make each day. “Making the effort to nurture your child’s brain with both proper nutrients and varied experiences, especially when they are young and developing at such a fast rate, is crucial,” says speech pathologist Lauren Zimet, founder of Early Insights, LLC, and an expert on childhood brain development. “The connections in brain circuitry can be enhanced through the environments and activities a child is exposed to, and participates in, as well as the nutrients a child consumes.” Zimet offers five tips to help parents enhance healthy brain development in their children, positioning them for success in school today, and well into their future: 1. Select a rainbow It’s no secret that the benefits of fresh fruits and vegetables are numerous, but thanks to the results of ongoing research, you can confidently add brain health to that list. Encourage your children to eat a colorful array of produce (organic when possible) each day so they get the antioxidants, vitamins and minerals needed to nourish and protect their growing brains. If your child is resistant to eating produce, encourage them to come shopping with you and select something new to try. Kids

are more likely to eat what they have selected themselves.

2. Relax the right way While it’s true that exercise boosts brain power, it’s also important to teach children how to relax. Balancing activity with relaxation is important so that kids don’t get too stressed, which can impact the brain’s development and lead to learning and behavior problems. Teaching children early on the benefit of setting goals, working towards those goals, and giving their brain and body time to relax are important life skills. When it’s time to relax, skip the TV and teach your child that taking a walk in nature, reading a book or drawing are great ways to unwind. Deep breathing is also an excellent practice to teach children of all ages.

3. Eat omega-3 brain food Omega-3 essential fatty acids are critical to a child’s brain development. They are called “essential” because we need them for optimal health. The problem is that our bodies cannot manufacture them and we can only get them from the food we eat or supplements we take. While fish, nuts and seaweed are good omega-3 sources, kids typically don’t gobble down these foods. That leaves many parents worried that their kids aren’t getting enough, and with omega-3 deficits linked to ADHD, dyslexia and other behavioral and psychological disorders, many are turning to supplements for their children. Experts agree that the safest, most reliable source of the most important essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) is a high

Gently boil uncovered 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain pasta; rinse with cold water. Shake to drain well. In large bowl, stir together seasoning mix and dressing. Add pasta and remaining ingredients; toss to combine. Serve immediately, or refrigerate. Notes: n To toast almonds, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet.

Gently boil uncovered 12 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding broccoli during last 2 minutes of cooking. Meanwhile, in large bowl, stir contents of seasoning mix packet (from salad mix), the dressing and cold water until blended; set aside. Drain pasta with broccoli; rinse with cold water.

Make Your BBQ Extraordinary with Great Side Dishes When it’s time for a backyard barbecue, you want the side dishes to get just as many raves as what’s hot off the grill. You can make your side dishes sizzle, too, with a few simple ideas and the perfect pasta salad. n Grill

more than meat. Grilled fruits and veggies showcase the flavors of the season. Try grilling peppers, onions, corn on the cob, or summer squash for a fresh veggie platter. Skewer peaches, pineapple, mangos and watermelon for some sweet and smoky fruit kebabs.

n Keep

your cool. Fresh and creamy pasta salads balance the heavier meat options — and help you beat the heat. The recipes above start with pasta salad mixes, then get taken to a whole new level of goodness with delicious ingredients you already have on hand. They make it easy to customize a cool pasta salad that will be the redhot star of the barbecue.

Tip: If you’re having green salad, remember to wait until the last minute to add the dressing and croutons.

Take the Guesswork Out of Finding a Job

Searching for a job can be a daunting task—something too many Americans know all too well. Job seekers need to find creative ways to renew and document their skills to stand out from the crowd. Gone are the days when refreshing a resume and customizing a cover letter would give prospective employees a shot at landing an interview. Now, employers are looking for a foolproof way to know the people they hire will be a wise investment. “Identifying and training the right employee costs time and money to already strapped employers,” said Martin Scaglione, President of the Workforce Development Division at ACT. “Job seekers who can document their skill levels to prospective employers before the interview process help increase their chance of success.” The process begins with preparation and planning. The following steps can help:

Plan – Before applying for a job, find out what skill set the job requires. ACT, best known for its college entrance exam, has one of the largest, most robust databases of occupational skills available, with more than 18,000 job titles. ACT-authorized job profilers have analyzed the tasks required to perform each job, and identified the essential skills required for these tasks, allowing job seekers to easily match their skill levels to profiled jobs. Search – Applying for dozens of positions online likely leads to disappointment for most job seekers as their inboxes fill with spam rather than interview invitations. Instead, start by searching the local paper, top job sites, local job sites and sites that focus on specific career fields to begin the search. Then, use online

Find photos of local events, sports, celebrations, plus much more at: photos.times-herald.com (plus, thousands of unpublished photos!) National Night Out

tools, job boards and networking to help narrow the choices and lessen the chances of applying for jobs that already have too many applicants.

Apply – Most employers get hundreds of online resumes every day to fill a limited number of positions. Some common tips may help increase your chance of success in the resume screening process: Follow the online application directions precisely. The quickest way to be eliminated is to ignore the employer’s specific application process. Place your computer/software skills together in a list under one heading, and all other skills under a separate heading. Include acronyms with spelled out versions to make sure both are caught in the screening process.

ing for a job. ACT’s National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) is made up of three assessments measuring essential workplace skills in math, reading and locating information. You may list your Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum NCRC on your resume and a prospective employer can log on to an ACT website to verify your accomplishment. To learn more about the NCRC, and to find a testing center near you, visit HYPERLINK “http:// www.act.org/certificate” www. act.org/certificate.

When looking for an extended service contract, ask yourself these questions. n What are the terms and conditions of the coverage? n Does it provide toll-free telephone and/or online access to technical support? n Who pays for shipping and handling if a product must be returned? n Does the contract include a “no lemon” policy? n Does it provide in-home service? n Does the contract include accidental damage coverage?

Renters Insurance

For about 37 million Americans, renting a house or apartment

is more affordable, and sometimes even preferable, to home owner­ship. But there are some disadvantages to renting. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, renters are 50 percent more likely than homeowners to be robbed. Likewise, the National Fire Protection Association reports that 270 apartment fires break out each day in the United States. While homeowners are required to have insurance against these types of problems, most renters are not. In fact, a survey by found that 67 percent of respondents did not have renters insurance. Why don’t more renters insure their valu­able possessions? Here are three common miscon­ ceptions that could be standing in the way of peace of mind. n “I can’t afford it.” The average renters insurance policy costs less than $200 per year, according to the National Associa­tion of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). n “I don’t have anything worth protecting.” Clothing, appliances and electronics can all be covered under renters insurance. The cost of replacing your computer, television, smart phone or gaming system will likely be higher than the

give you specifics based on your state and the kind of policy you want. Ask questions such as: n What hazards are included? Do I need a separate policy for specific circumstances? n Are my roommates covered by the policy? n What optional coverage is available (such as flood or earthquake coverage)? n How much liability coverage is provided? n Will I receive additional living expenses if I have to live elsewhere while my apart­ment is being repaired? n Do I need additional coverage for damages or injuries caused by my pet? n Does my policy cover items stolen or damaged while not on the property (i.e. stolen from your car)? McDonald recommends making sure you are covered for replacement costs. “If you file a claim without replacement cost coverage, you’ll get paid what the item is worth now, not for the cost of replacing it with a brand new item. It’s definitely worth the invest­ment,” she said.

cost of insur­ing them. n “I’m covered by my landlord’s insurance.” Landlords carry insurance to cover struc­tural damage to the building, but it does not cover your personal property. Nor does it protect you from liability for structural damage you might cause. “Renters insurance is one of those things you hope you never need, but accidents do happen — and it pays to make sure you and your property are fully protected,” said Kathy McDonald, president, Property Solutions at Assurant Specialty Property. “In addition to protecting your possessions, renters insurance can protect you against personal liability, too. If you accidentally start a kitchen fire or flood in the bathroom and it damages your apart­ment, or a neighbor’s apartment, you’re the one that’s liable, not your landlord.”

The amount of insurance you need will depend on what you want to protect and the types of hazards you want to safeguard against. Your insurance agent can

5. Be a positive support system early on Learning is a complex process, but children will be more open to trying new things when they know their parents believe in them. Acknowledging effort, instead of the outcome, strengthens a child’s belief in himself or herself. Teaching goal setting, prioritizing activities and working off of check lists exercises the prefrontal cortex (PFC) in the brain. Experimentation through trial and error is the way the brain learns best. “Giving your child’s brain what it needs to grow strong can help him or her at school and in all social situations,” adds Zimet. “Utilizing these tips is a great way to help position your child for success in the coming school year, and beyond.”

Staying hydrated is important for growing brains and bodies. Water can improve energy, increase mental and physical performance, remove toxins and waste from the body, and keep skin healthy and glowing. Based on the trillions of cells in the body that need water to function, most nutritionists agree that children need more, not less H20. To estimate how many ounces of water your child should drink daily, divide his or her weight in half and aim for that number of ounces per day.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

A home inventory is one of the best ways to make sure your property is fully protected. A well-documented list of your possessions will help you get the right amount of coverage to fully protect your valuables. And the information stored in your inventory could help with repair or replacement if you need it. The NAIC recommends taking these steps to create your own home inventory: n Make a list of your possessions, including jewelry, elec­tronics, fine art, family heirlooms, collections, furniture, toys, CDs, clothing, sports equipment, tools, etc. n Photograph or videotape each item, and document a brief description including age, purchase price and estimated current value. Remember to open drawers and closets to document what’s inside. n Attach copies of original sales receipts and/or appraisal documents. Be sure to note model and serial numbers. n Store your inventory and related documents in a safe, easily accessible place such as a secured online site, a fire-proof box or in a safe deposit box. You may want to share a copy with your insurance provider so he or she can make neces­sary updates to your coverage. n Review and update your inventory annually and whenever you make a significant purchase. The NAIC offers a free mobile app that captures and electron­ically stores images, descriptions, bar codes and serial numbers. You can download the myHOME Scr. APP.book app for iPhone users at the App Store.
