Who Gets

Hey, here's a little free online site offering prizes. No money needed to enter and you don't end up getting shedloads of spam, either. It's over at whogets.com and the way it works is that first you sign up for the site. Then they show what it is that's on offer and you can simply enter to win it. Then, at the end, 7 lucky people are picked and they each write a 100 word post about why it should be them that wins it.  The best one does.

Very simple so why not try it out?

Online College

One of the recent seemingly minor rule changes in the way that student loans are offered seems to have been missed by so many people. It's one of those seemingly minor ones that is really rather going to change the world around us.

Until recently you could only get a federally subsidised (Stafford, Pell etc) student loan if you went to a college that did more than 50% of it's teaching on campus. This was really something of a protective manouvre by the traditional colleges. With the rise of the internet, the possibilities of internet video etc there's no particular reason why students should have to assemble in one place in order to be educated. But, if to pay for the courses they were required to, this maintained the privileged position of the older schools.

Now this is no longer true. As long as a college meets the other requirements about quality etc, purely online places can also allow their students access to those federally funded loans.

Expect to see an explosion of interest in those seeking an online college degree as the implications of this work through the system. At this point perhaps it's worth clicking though that link there to see what Capella University, one of the largest such online colleges can offer.

Despite working only online, they're a fully fledged academic sorta place, as the recent publication of ‘Appreciative Coaching:  A Positive Process for Change’ by a faculty member shows.

Congoo News Circles

I have to admit that I always feel a little silly trying to discuss these new various additions to the blogging experience. Twitter and the like, I mean, what's it for, really?

However, Congoo News Circles don't mystify me so much, they're a great way of promoting a News Blog.

Once you've got your basic blog set up on their system you can then go on to create a variety of widgets and tools to help you popularise that bog. Intelligent thinking really, as there's plenty of blogging systems but few decent ways to get the word out about them.

Vancouver Lawyers

There's a number of reasons why you might want to think about lawyers, not all of them jokes. In fact, I'm reasonably certain that all those laywer jokes are in fact because we know that we'll need them at some point and rather resent this.

For example, Vancouver personal injury lawyers might be something you need if you get injured in Vancouver. Makes sense really, doesn't it? However, don't think that the guys at that link only work on that one subject.

They're also experts in hte complecities of immigration law and while Canada is welcoming to immigrants they certainly don't make the paperwork process easy, which is why you'llç need good lawyers. It's also true that the supposedly simpler process of getting a working visa can be bureauctratic and time consuming.

But the real reason you want a lawyer is of course if you ever get accused of something. Sure, there's a justice system there but you need someone to fight your corner, someone who knows what they're doing.

Reverse Auctions

You might like to try your hand at this little site, bid4prizes.

Yes, it's an auction, but an auction site with a difference, in fact somthing of a serious twist to it. The thing is, it's the lowest bid that wins, not the highest. Well, to be more precise, it's the lowest unique bid that wins.

The way it works is that you log on and then select what you're trying to bid on (a large plasma screen for example) and then you send in by SMS (or text message) your bid to the company. They'll then tell you whether you are the lowest bidder, and also whether you've made a unique bid. With that information you can then make another attempt to be the lowest unique bidder.

Sounds like a lot of fun actually, especially if you're good at the sort of mathematical games needed to make the right decisions...for of course, you need to work out what all of the other people are going to be bidding.

Well worth trying I think, who knows, you might win with a bid of $1.38 or something!

The Perfect Pint!

So scientists have now given us the formula for a perfect pint.

A mathematical formula can now predict how the frothy head on a beer changes over time, a finding that may have a wide range of commercial uses beyond pulling the perfect pint, U.S. researchers said on Wednesday.
   

The formula explains how the tiny bubbles that make up foam grow -- an explanation that could lead to the development of products such as metal shrink wrap.    

The possibilities include "the heat treatment of metals or even controlling (the) head on a pint of beer," Robert MacPherson of Princeton University in New Jersey and David Srolovitz of Yeshiva University in New York report in the journal Nature.

The only problem of course is that the researchers are American and therefore think that beer should in fact be fizzy. Which of course it should not be at all, the froth should be only that provided by the hand pump bringing it up from the cellar.

But then we know that the colonial cousins don't understand that.

UK Mortgages

With interest rates on the rise it's even more important that you scour the market properly for the best possible deal in the UK mortgage market. There are so many people offering mortgages now, with so many possible different variations that it's almost impossible for anyone to find out everything for themselves.

Thus the way to deal with looking for Mortgages is to simply click through one of the links and take the advice of those peple who have already done all of the heavy footwork for you.

Whether you need to get a loan on a self-reporting basis, or a traditional floating rate, or a fixed rate (for however many years) perhaps you need 100%, they'll be able to guide you to hte best offers available on the market today.

Hey, why do all the work yourself if someone's already done it for you?

Futures Markets

There's an awful lot about investment markets that people really don't seem to understand. The most important is the concept of diversification.

This means that you should have some money in cash, some in bonds, some in stock and so on. One way of putting it is that you shouldn't put all your eggs in one basket. Another is that you should look to different asset classes and adjust the amount that you have in each based on the riskiness of that class, plus the needs of your own investment policy.

At the riskier end, but still something that you should think about, is global futures. What you need to understand here is that while the returns can be high, so are the risks (indeed, the two go together in financial markets) so it isn't something that should be at the core of your strategy. Rather, something to do with a small part of your portfolio.

Click through that link and see how Global Futures Exchange & Trading Co., Inc. can get you started in the market for as little as $250.
