that this information came from hearsay only. DiNoia, who has been at the bishops' conference for four years, handles doctrinal topics that touch both on faith and morals. That work has broadened considerably into ethical areas, such as in health care issues. He described the work as "more than a 9-5 job. It's all-consuming." In addition to his teaching load, one course a semester, DiNoia edits the quarterly philosophy/theology journal The Thomist. In the Dominican election process, the electi...

The role of IT has developed along with the changes that have occurred over the last five years, and there is now extensive use of internal email, remote email and online access to accounts and inventory. Groupware features such as Windows for Workgroups are also used to enable better and more efficient team work. These have been to the extent that the managing director considered the changes could not have occurred without the facilitation of IT. A great deal of trust was required initially,...

Banks Beating Up On Consumers!! What is going on in the Financial world? All of a sudden the Banks are going crazy- I was refused a mortgage from my bank for 30% of the adjusted market value because my credit score is only 680. ( They just wrote a mortgage for me 8 months ago with the same credit score) Evidently, paying your bills on time and having more cash in the bank than what you are asking for in use of a mortgage is not important. Yes, I have three times as much cash  in their...
I opened my electric bill for next month, on line, since I get them that way, and what I saw shocked me!  My electric bill is $100 more than usual!  At first I thought that OK, we just had Christmas, the decorations were up, etc., I had more activities in my home than usual, but a hundred bucks more?! Well my daughter called me and said her electric bill went up by $80 and when I checked around at work, my co-workers all had the same kind of increase, between $80 and $150! They h...
There are so many people who don't agree with this.  Why should the Government continue to give bailouts?  We know the pros and cons of all this.  Those reasons I won't go into because they've all been discussed already.  The people did receive help last year, with money that was supposed to be used to spread into our local areas so that it would boost our economy.  That didn't work.  Most people did the best thing, took care of bills.  Some did spend. Som...
This must be a joke?!  I'm sitting watching Good Morning America and the news came in that Larry Flint and that owner of the Girls Gone Wild videos are asking Congress for a $5 Million bailout? They say that Americans are so worried they have stopped enjoying themselves!  Wow!  Now I've heard it all!

Il prestito consolidamento è un finanziamento che riunisce in una sola rata le rate di più prestiti in corso. Si tratta di uno strumento utile per risanare le posizioni debitorie difficili, per cui attraverso la negoziazione di un miglior tasso di interesse o di una maggiore durata del prestito si potrà accedere ad una minor rata più sostenibile per il debitore. Nel caso in cui gli importi da accorpare siano elevati si può accedere ad un mutuo consolidamento...

What can you really rely upon? The morning news from the BBC or CNN? Though I do remember during a big storm in 1988 the BBC news was broadcast from the Play school studio. In general though the gap between my perception and expectation of a product and reality grows ever larger. Our company has business continuity insurance which I specifically took out in case our broadband line was cut for a long period of time as it was in 2002 when a over enthusiastic digger took out 5 metres of cable r...

The lenders do not give much importance on your credit report. You can apply for a loan even if your credit report is very poor. No valuation of the property and online searches in land registry is required for the approval of cash til payday loan. So it takes a very short time for the lenders to approve the loan and draw down the funds into the borrower’s account. The funds get transferred within the next 48 hours of your application. The most important ground that every borrower has t...

  Update 11/08/08 No problems today.  A new class of customer has moved in bigtime, however.  Whenever the economy tanks, we get an influx of "Okies" in the OC, which was apparent both in the sudden appearance of several decripit motorhomes in the back alleys and a dozen or more raw-boned, farm-bred looking customers at Carl's this morning. Last weekend, however, history repeated itself in the appearance of a gang-banger shooting up againg in the men's room.  I ...

A few days ago, I noticed that the forums weren't working as intended.  The way I "surf" JU is I look on the right to see what the popular articles are, and then I pick one and click it.  If none of those articles seem interesting, I look at the "Recent articles" list and pick one of those.  Once I've read that and responded or delcined to, I look again on the right for something new to view.  The problem was that once I had navigated away from my own blog, if I clicked somet...

I could go talk to my financial advisor, if I had one...I could find one at my bank or something!  I could even go on line and Google and read information out there, and I've done some reading already!  However, nothing beats the knowledge of my fellow Joes! So who has them, had them, plans on getting them, [no, I'm not being nosy!] is it worth it, are they good investments in these times?  And don't tell me we are not going through a rough patch because we are!  ...
