This article is valuable information regardless of the situation. Protect yourself from fraud by knowing what an ad is on Google and what isn’t. Make sure you know where you can get your credit reports for free. And, know that paying extra for fraud protection is often an expense that you don’t need to make. If you stop reading beyond this paragraph, know that you can request a credit freeze from all 3 credit reporting bureaus. If a hacker wants to open credit in your name, the credit freeze will be a major obstacle for them to overcome.

Job Searchers are unaware of the costs of creating a resume. The prices are small but can cause a lot of problems if the job searcher isn’t expecting to pay. If you don’t have access to a debit/credit card, paying for a resume online is impossible.
Further complicating things for job seekers is that most sites don’t advertise their costs until you reach the print and/or save file screen. In fact, job searchers can spend a lot of time crafting the perfect resume, only to be forced to pay or lose the work they put in.
I did a simple search for ‘resume maker’ and ‘make a resume free’ to get an idea of what job seekers see when they try to create a resume.
The idea that a solar eclipse meant a demon was swallowing the sun shows up in eclipse folklore across the globe, and if you look at pictures of a partial solar eclipse, you can see why: It’s easy to imagine that some giant creature is slowly taking bite after bite out of the sun. In ancient China, the earliest word for eclipse, shih, meant to eat, and eclipses were believed to be caused by a dragon eating the sun. In Vietnam, the sun eater was a frog. For the Native American Pomo, it was a bear. In Yugoslavia it was a werewolf, and in Siberia a vampire.
It has been reported during many eclipses that many different animals are startled by totality and change their behavior thinking that twilight has arrived. You can explore this yourself with your own pets, or by watching local wildlife, especially birds.

Nueve en diez familias sabían que sus hijos/hijas iban a ir a la universidad, pero solo 4 de esos 10 tenían un plan para financiar el costo. Esto es del reporte más recién de Sallie Mae e Ipsos. “How America Pays for College 2017”. Ahora en su decimo año, el reporte nota que parientes y estudiantes por la mayoria comparten el costo de pagar por la universidad. Además, las familias están ampliando su conocimiento del costo y planificando como pagar mientras esten dentro de sus presupuestos. De hecho, casi la mitad de las familias han usado becas para pagar la universidad. Casi todas las familias han tomado pasos para reducir el costo universitario, como hacen los estudiantes que viven con los familiares.
Nine out of ten families knew their children would go to college, but only 4 had a plan. That’s the latest report from Sallie Mae and Ipsos’ ‘‘How America Pays for College 2017’. Now in its tenth year, the report notes that parents and students equally share the costs of paying for college. Additionally, families are increasing their knowledge of costs and planning within their means. In fact, nearly half of all families have used grants and scholarships to pay for college. Almost all families have taken steps to reduce college costs, such as having students live with their relatives.
What would happen if you lost all of your family’s photos, tomorrow? Millions of Americans trust the cloud to save all of their family moments. But, what if one day, they vanished? In 2006, Pew reported that 57% of teens create their content. Like a lot of people my age, I was in a band. We played and recorded music which we then uploaded to Myspace. At the time, it was the most popular social networking website around. It had overtaken Friendster, which had previously caught up to makeoutclub.com, a site for “…for indierockers, hardcore kids, record collectors, artists, bloggers, and hopeless romantics.”*. It was inconceivable that there could be another social-networking site that would overtake it. While there must be a CD of that music somewhere in my parent’s house, it has completely disappeared from the internet. That’s basically what link rot is.
A 2014 Harvard Law School study looks at the legal implications of Internet link decay, and finds reasons for alarm. The authors, Jonathan Zittrain, Kendra Albert and Lawrence Lessig, determined that approximately 50% of the URLs in U.S. Supreme Court opinions no longer link to the original information.
“On June 26, 2008, our friend Michael Seibel introduced us to 7 prominent investors in Silicon Valley. We were attempting to raise $150,000 at a $1.5M valuation. That means for $150,000 you could have bought 10% of Airbnb. Below you will see 5 rejections. The other 2 did not reply.”
If you have ever wondered how billion-dollar companies start out, this website compiles the ‘pitch decks’ of some of the largest companies in Silicon Valley. A pitch deck is a small slideshow presentation to investors which include an explanation of your business and vision for the future. Equally important, they could serve other purposes, such as for meeting other investors. But, it’s generally used for this purpose. Pollenizer has a simple template anyone can use as a pitch deck, here.

Si sus niños estan en la applicacion SnapChat, tiene que asegurarse que no estan publicando su ubicacion. Esta nueva herramienta pone en riesgo sus hijos. Desde cuando la aplicacion salio, muchos medios de noticias han reportado sobre esta caracteristica peligrosa. Aunque sea que tenga que estar de acuerdo con la nueva funcion para activar el ‘Snap Map’, muchas personas lo activan sin pensar. Solamente despues realizan que la privacidad del usuario ha sido comprometido.
Para asegurar que esta desactivado el snap map, pellizque la pantalla cuando este abierto en la camara. Despues, haga clic en la pieza de rueda dentada en la parte superior lado de la derecha. Cuando abra las opciones de privacidad, haga clic en ‘Ghost Mode’. Para asegurarse completamente que el mapa esta desactivado, entre a los ajustes de su telefono, busque la aplicacion Snapchat y apague ‘location sharing’.
