Life is a Bridge

Life is a bridge, build no house upon it

Life is a bridge between birth and death,
it is temporary and belongs to us for only a little while,
we should not get attached to anything

Virtual Credit Card Program, Citibank

1 komentar
Virtual Account Numbers: Shop online without your "real" Citi card number on the line.




Citibank has launched a virtual card program that many Citi cardmembers have wanted for a long time. The name of this service is Virtual Account Numbers.

The “Virtual Account Number” is a great feature for credit card companies who constantly aspire to be “first in wallet”.



Virtual Account Numbers are credit card numbers which are generated on the fly and can be used for online transactions. This is very helpful if you do not want to reveal your actual credit card number for online transactions. Because you never give out your real number, it stays safely in your wallet. The number can only be used by the single merchant, and only up to the amount you set. Perfect for those sites that want to charge you $9.95 for the first month and then rebill you every month until the second coming. I always assumed that these numbers are one-time use only. But with the Citibank Virtual Account Numbers, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that you can set up the numbers to be multiple use and also specify limits and expiration dates (up to 12 months in the future).

Need to provide a number for PayPal or DirecTV authorization, whereby they just need to verify address data? This is the way to go: just create one good for $4 or so, provide it to your merchant, and you need never worry about that number coming back to bite you in the butt.

There are 2 ways to access and use this helpful feature when you shop online:

1. Download the tool once to your computer to automatically generate an account number.

2. Launch it each time by signing on to Account Online and selecting the Virtual Account Numbers box in the upper right corner.

Where it works: Customers should not use Virtual Account Numbers when purchases require the presence of a physical credit card, such as the case for movie tickets bought online, says Rob Rosenblatt, Executive Vice President of Citi Cards.

“The Virtual Account Number technology can be used for any purchase that does not require an actual credit card plastic to be present. So, the technology can be used for online shopping as well as catalog shopping. Customers don’t have to give out their real credit card number over the phone, either,” Rosenblatt says.

Card companies are reporting that usage of virtual card numbers if very low and I think is mostly due to lack of public awareness. If your card company allows you to create a virtual card number, keep this in mind the next time you purchase something from an online merchant you wouldn’t exactly trust with your life. A virtual card number could save your butt, or at least save you a few bucks.

The Ghetto Parrot

0 komentar

A woman had a parrot that she took with her everywhere she went.
She would even take the parrot to the club with her when she went dancing and drinking on Saturday nights.

Whenever the woman went onto the dance floor, the parrot would yell, "The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire, we don't need no water-let the muthafukkah burn! Burn, muthafukkah, burn!"

The crowd on the dance floor would always cheer and holler in appreciation when the parrot would yell. This would make the parrot yell even more and of course make the crowd go wild.
This would go on all night long, every time the parrot went out...

One Sunday morning the woman took the parrot to church and into the choir stand with her.

When the choir started to sing, the parrot yelled, "The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire, we don't need no water-let the muthafukkah burn! Burn, muthafukkah, burn!

She embarrassingly corrected the parrot, "No, no, you do not say that when we're here!"

The parrot looked around and asked, "Why not? These are the same muthafukkahs that was at the club last night.

Financial Plan for a New Couple

0 komentar
Best match is a pair of best life and most suitable in all aspects, including the Family Financial Life. Many people have their financial condition to be changed after finding their couple.

Financial problems however can not be changed without any effort of our own to change it. Logically that's why someone changed the financial condition to positive just because of connsequence of their changing status of life.

The most important is the choice which the life, characteristics and agreements, both of couples. And don't forget that any option will be decided then, there will be consequences, either in the form of material (financial impact), or in any other form.

Select an alternative based on the most appropriate conditions or information supporting the most obvious or already have.

First of all for Husband, seek employment for his wife if she following her husband. Of course, type of work should match the skills and competencies of his wife, and can meet the needs of family. Similarly, if the husband decides to move or following his wife.

The first step before choosing one alternative is to make a decision whether his wife will remain a career woman or a housewife or mother households but have a home business so that she still have time for family. Try to find jobs that are available for the husband or the wife, of course select the job with the condition each time.

Job offer make easier for you and your partner to choose some best alternatives that suits for the needs of family. If the job offer is also not up to date with the wedding then this becomes a matter that is not easy to remember you are both on life without a branch provided with supporting information or a complete condition.

Once again the decision should be costumized to the condition of both parties. If you and your partner pair are ready mentally and mind to make a long distance relationship, even both of you already have experience doing so without any interference then try to do this to get a job offer that can be used as support information to make decisions.

However, if you haven't been doing long-distance relationships, even mental thought patterns and you can't receive both of these conditions then there is no other way except one of the pair and you must have a sacrifice to move. Would be better if one of you quit from job, that is the most fast and easy way to get another job despite not match to condition of competence and ability, but can reduce the financial expense.

The final step is determining where to live with a new family, in this case the decision can be adjusted to stay on where you and partner live. Location can be selected from an alternative place to stay close to the workplace, public facilities, other public facilities (such as hospitals, doctors, schools, markets, places of worship, a shopping center / super market etc.) and also with the financial condition.
Types of homes can buy their own home, the contract is subject to financial conditions can be better (probably because it has preferred to find a better job in terms of compensation). If you have the option to buy it with cash or loan system.

Other suggestions also you have and your partner have to remember is Lifestyle.
Sometimes someone doesn't realize that the lifestyle that influence the condition of Expenditure and Income. Things that are small but can be an additional expense for Finance such as Smoke, Sale, Fast Food or "eating out", movie theaters, consumer lifestyle, shopping clothes, shoes, tools beauty, fashion with gadgets (mobile phones, audio, video), electronic equipment, hobby vehicle accessories and others.
That types of expenset is not large, but often do so within a month or a year can become a great amount of money for the family's financial condition.

Adjust Lifestyle bachelor or girl at the time after Married. Lifestyle adjustments should be able to provide greater savings can make the budget or the need greater than if these costs do not need to remain in the top removed.

I found this fascinating quote today:



Early one morning Antipka was sitting sadly on the steps of his little wooden house, sunk in thought. He had plenty to be happy  about: a cosy home which he had built himself, a nice plot of ground and a good crop of cabbages and sunflowers. And yet one thing made him miserable; he had married a bad-tempered woman. When he first knew her she seemed such a sweet young girl and then, immediately after the wedding, she became spiteful and irritable, and now Antipka’s life was absolute misery.www.christon.net, May 2009

Advertising sales send a message that may persuasif for some prospective buyers to get right of a particular product or service with the cheapest cost.
From the above understanding about advertising, it can be concluded that the orientation of advertising is persuasif messages about the sale. Public Relations oriented to provide information, education and understanding through the creation of knowledge.

Advertising and Public Relations, is not the same but the advertising and Public Relations would be better have mutual support. With a sense that advertising will be even better if supported by Public Relations on it. Public Relations include a broader than advertising, Public Relations include the entire communication that takes place in an organization that is limited to the field of advertising and marketing functions only.

With the good management of public, it will be accomplished working together more productively in order to meet the interests of more efficient communication with some activities of the plan and widespread.

Once again, the public is a Public Relations practitioners that have bound them with the organization, so the public has the organization depend to each other. Therefore, the presence of Public Relations, which perform the activities of communications plans and distribution area, is expected to create cooperation between the public interest with the organization so that together can create more efficient.

In the activities of communication, a Public Relations practitioner must also know the characteristics of target public in communication activities so that the purpose of implementation of Public Relations communications could be achieved.

Google Pagerank

0 komentar


Google PageRank today have a large role to define website or blogs value,based on google checksum algorithm.

Bloggers who monetize their blogs sometimes focused on how to make higher PageRank then forget what blogging is.

All we really neet to do is focus on our blogs content, and backlinks.
Do NOT focus on Pagerank / PR, because it will get you nowhere fast.
Forget PageRank; focusing on it is pointless and it has become an irrelevant measure of ranking your website's and blogs; in current times.
It served its purpose when it was created, but that purpose is no longer needed now.

Content is king - get that right, and the rest will follow.

Backlinks are key - why do you think google used to be called backrub? google is built around backlinks.

Move past it now, everyone else has.

Enjoy!

Great Planning, Great Living

0 komentar
People and planning, live and living, just already be a need. That's why these parts can not be separated from our daily activities. Being a businessman, Role of the Strategic Planner is a must so those goods and services can be marketed immediately and absorbed by the market, for example a corn farmer planning to sell the harvest from the corn for the next three months and the money from selling corns planned to pay his children school fees, books, house and others.

Role of the planning is so important, can't be ignored by anyone who does the activities, nowadays business planning (goods and services) is ultimately intended to get more money, but ironically people are often not planning to make more money obtain from own works.

In real life people often spend a large amount of money in sale program or discount program, bought goods from sale item that people don't actually need it for now and have lost more millions of money due to incorrect information from some investment advice that is not appropriate.
The fact is those who work in the field of finance and often provide financial advice to customers when asked if they have a personal financial planning program and just a little who say 'yes' I already have.
But if we ask them if you want to be rich? Their answers are 'yes' I want to be rich.

I want to be rich, that's all people wants. But there are some problems before it, all people facing on a desire to become rich but don't know how to, that people surely know is how to spend the money, then how can become rich?

Become rich is actually very simple, it can be done through real sector and financial sector . The second sector ( financial sector ) is very potential to make you become more wealthy but don't forget there is a risk factor that should be anticipated from the start of this planning. That I want to tell here is the financial sector in accordance with the competencies that we have through financial planning.

Financial Planning is how we can make the right planning in line with the available time, to create prosperous we become.

Income & savings - investment - liabilities (debt) - routine expenditure


This planning make you feel your asset growing, you will feel the financial planning is no longer a need for a duty of duress.

Then how much we must save for the investment? It is relative depend on your financial condition, but limits that we provide at least 10% of your income regularly invested every month, don't ever reduce your investment if you want to become rich next day. Put investment instruments in appropriate place and different available time (short, medium or long).

You have obligation, your maximum monthly debt repayments are equal to 30% of your earnings, if is above 30% then you have to reduce the routine expenditure for, can be combined with another addition earnings, remember your net wealth is accumulation of assets minus debt. So, someone rich or not rich if he can meet those criteria.

Failure is not a choice, this may sounds wise, because each person is sure of being success and never choose failure.
Being realistic is very good, discussed your financial planning with professional and specialist and independent, so they give objective advice and in the end you are planning for a better life for yourself and the family beloved,

Great Planning for a Great Living
