Those pipe breaks are to systems that had been installed

It’s a whole other matter in terms of the pipes our drinking normal water flows through or the sewer methods that remove waste from our own towns and cities.

 

It doesn’t take the scorching heat of your wildfire to melt plastic, while. Decisions regarding pipe materials still should be made through the judgment along with experience of professionals who consider a variety of factors in awarding contracts, not special interests pushing a particular advantage that benefits one type of material but aren't what is best for this community.

 

Often, those pipe breaks are to systems that had been installed fewer than a ten years ago. The chemical leaked in to the water when the plastic pipes melted through the heat of the inferno.

 

Naturally, they and their families are drinking that water, too, protected special interests move on for their next political fight. That’s where plastic fails the charge test.. We all know local government budgets are usually tight, and there’s no magical weed of money that’s going to drop from the sky.

 

One of the worst situations we now have seen this year is some sort of town in Northern California that had barely survived a wildfire just for residents to come home and find their mineral water supply had been contaminated by simply benzene.

Historical figures: Awesome ladies edition
Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation - Cokie Roberts

This book was just what was needed to pull me out of a reading slump. Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation by Cokie Roberts is an account of the women who supported and helped shape the development of the democratic government in the United States. While I initially thought that this would yield minimal new information considering how heavily this period of time was covered during my schooldays I discovered just how wrong (and ignorant) I was especially in regards to the women. I realized that it had never occurred to me to wonder just how long the absences of these women's husbands were during the creation of the Declaration of Independence, Constitution (including the Articles of the Confederation), and the U.S. government as a whole. Not to mention how absolutely strong-willed and informed these women were about the affairs of state (which was beneficial as they passed on the latest news to their husbands through extensive letter writing). Best couple award goes to George and Martha Washington who were the most well-adjusted and steadfast couple of the lot. Martha went everywhere George went including Valley Forge where she was instrumental in keeping the morale of the men up (and getting them to stay at all) as well as organizing other women into organized sewing groups to keep the troops clothed. Favorite woman of the many discussed was hands down Abigail Adams who not only had the keenest mind but also the sharpest tongue. She had no problem telling John where to go and letting him know that just because he was away didn't mean that the romance in their relationship needed to suffer. In fact, theirs was the most strained relationship of all as John was in high demand and for the majority of their marriage they were separated as he worked tirelessly in his work as a member of the Continental Congress and then later as the Vice President. If you, like me, love reading about confident women and relish learning new things about a slice of history you thought you had thoroughly mapped then I must point you in the direction of Founding Mothers. 10/10

 

PS Benjamin Franklin was the worst.

Bad Credit Affects School Loans

You may be the parent of someone hoping to go to college or you are off to college yourself. Bad credit scores can affect your ability to get a school loan. Like any other kind of loan, you are expected to pay back the money you borrow in full. Having bad credit makes you a higher risk than those with good credit history. Therefore, you are less likely to be approved for a student loan – no matter the reasons!

 

School financing is black and white. You either qualify, otherwise you do not.

 

Most school loans are undertaken through the government. They are fairly standard procedures throughout the company. This keeps the system fair for everyone hoping to go to college and beyond. However, this does mean that cannot try a private loan company if you are denied a loan.

 

There are various loans that you can apply for without having to undertake a credit check. But they do not allow you to pay the full amount that you will need for college fees. These loans often come with borrowing limits for both the yearly and total amounts. So, you will still be able to fund at least a partial amount of your studies, should you choose to take this route.

 

Dangerous credit doesn’t mean higher interest rates. It means that you’re not attending to get approved.

 

Entering a loan with a guarantor to the pay the fees if you fall behind on your payments is another option. Again, using a guarantor is a good route if you are certain you will be able to pay the loan back in full. As a lender, you run the risk of putting undue strain on the relationship with whoever agrees to be your guarantor.

 

Unfortunately, student loans are a place in your life where your bad credit can have an impact on other people you care about. If you are the parent of a child going to college, your student will often rely on you to support them. This could be with a loan or signing on as their guarantor. In this case, making good credit history becomes even more important.

THE COLOR OF LAW: THE FORGOTTEN HISTORY OF HOW OUR GOVERNMENT SEGREGATED AMERICA by Richard Rothstein
The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America - Richard Rothstein

Interesting book on how the government ignored the Constitution to create segregate communities of African-Americans and Caucasians.  I learned a lot and much made me angry.  He gives the history of how and when this happened and remedies to correct the past.  At times I didn't understand but he wrote so that I could understand the concept.  He documents everything.  I especially liked the FAQ section.  Worth reading.
