No Despair Losing Your Job

One of my friends has lost her well-paid job due to health problems. She is totally frustrated, cherishing no hope for getting back on feet. She is especially despaired at the fact that she thinks she's lost access to credit.
But are Miranda's fears justified? Well, if I were in her shoos, I would probably be the same uneasy. But! Wait a minute, credit cards for the unemployed are not a miracle! You can save your eligibility for credit if you follow some useful rules.
If you are in a similar situation, be sure that creditors will try to make everything to keep you their customer. Only, beware pitfalls.

You are Never Late to Learn

I've always thought I'm a wise and practical driver but my ex-bf proved me I waste huge amounts on my car just out of the ignorance of some plain facts.

Well, have you heard of such things? Now that I've learnt them, it seems to me I always new about them...

Legal Robbing

It seems to me the more I read about some financial issues (on credit cards in particular), the more inclined I become to air my point of view on some of them. Just recently I've learnt about debt collectors who are misusing their authority to make more revenues out of debtors. They continue the collection practice even if you are a victim of credit card fraud and what's more, they raise the rates.
What about protecting consumers rights? Is credit card debt a good reason enough to make lawlessness and humiliate civil rights? Happily, these questions have occupied lawmakers' minds and they promis a new law. Ley's wait and see...

Volcano Eruptions Thrilling

Have you ever seen a volcano erupting? It is a fascinating and at the same time terrifying sight. I've seen a picture of an eruption and it made me sorry I didn't watch it with my own eyes!
It took the lives of three people, however, and this remainds me that this natural phenomena should be fought - not enjoyed...
