      8 Unexpected Life Expenses And A Smart Way To Finance Them

      Seems like no matter how hard we try, one can never be truly prepared or financially secure to handle everything life throws at you.  Life is filled with unexpected expected events and expenses that rock your world.  During these times of potentially heightened emotional stress, the flexibility and accessibility of a personal loan can be a smart way to cover the costs. They provide competitive, fixed interest rates, a fixed monthly payment amount, and a payoff date so you know exactly when you’ll free of the debt.

    6. The Equifax Breach Is Bad, But There Are Steps That Can Help

      The Equifax Breach Is Bad, But There Are Steps That Can Help

      In case you were able to hide under a rock, you had to have heard something about the Equifax breach and how it has affected 143 million Americans – more than half of all the adults who live in the United States.  I'd say its safe to say we need to assume that our most private data is no longer secure.

      According to the U.S. Department of Justice, the vast majority (86 percent) of instances of identity theft have been related to misuse of existing accounts – credit cards or bank accounts (Victims of Identity Theft, 2014).

      Social Media and Divorce: Why You Should Put the Keyboard Down and Log Out

      Every morning, as I drink my morning cup of coffee, I scroll through my Facebook news feed, and it does not take me long before I come across a “friend’s” post that causes me to shake my head, and think “Why would they post that?” In today’s social media savvy world, people are often quick to send out a tweet, update their Facebook status, or post an item without thinking first. Maybe I think this way because I am a divorce attorney, but I cringe when I read some of these posts. If you are going through a contentious divorce, about to go through a divorce or just finalized your divorce, or you and your spouse are engaged in a heated custody battle, please heed this simple advice:

      California Is The First State To Require Spiritual Care In Health Care | HuffPost

      If you get sick in California, and you are covered by the state’s Medi-Cal health insurance, you will be pleased to know that your health care just got better. California is the first state to recognize that spiritual care is a standalone discipline in health care and a trained and certified palliative care chaplain must be available for any patient who wants one. Spirituality, defined in the Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care is a “fundamental aspect of compassionate, patient-and family-centered care that honors the dignity of all persons.”

    9. What I Learned from Falling Victim to Tax Identity Theft

      What I Learned from Falling Victim to Tax Identity Theft

      Falling victim to identity theft is never a fun situation to find yourself in, as I recently discovered when I learned my personal information was used to file a fraudulent tax return. Now that everything has been taken care of and things are starting to pan out, I’m sharing the lessons I learned to not only help other victims of tax identity theft, but also to inform non-victims of the problems I faced so they can learn from the experience — and pass along this information to others. After all, education is one of the best defenses against scams and fraud. That said, here are three things I learned from falling victim to tax identity theft.

    11. These Are The Best Mineral Sunscreens, According To Dermatologists

      These Are The Best Mineral Sunscreens, According To Dermatologists

      We all know that wearing SPF is important, but chemical sunscreens ― the kind you’ve probably been wearing for years ― can be irritating for some people with sensitive skin. That’s where mineral sunscreen comes in.

      Mineral sunscreens help prevent sun damage, just like traditional sunscreens, but they do so using physical blockers like zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide. These ingredients work by reflecting the sun off your skin, as opposed to absorbing and transforming harmful rays on the skin as chemical sunscreens containing the likes of oxybenzone, avobenzone and homosalate do.
