I’m sure most of us who are already working have credit cards, some students might use students credit card or debit card and some people just prefer debit cards since they’re cautious with their spending and might not want to overspend their money. Whatever the reason is, there’s no reason to be afraid of credit cards if you use it wisely. I’m sure a lot of people applied for the reward credit cards, some might have business credit cards issues by their respective company for business purposes and some student have student credit cards for their spendings.

For the people who have a bad credit report, they might have to use Secured Credit Cards. A secured credit card is a credit card where you need to put a cash collateral deposit which will be your credit limit for the account. As an example, if you put $200 on the card, then your maximum charge on the card will be $200. Usually, you have the option to put in a further deposit to extend the credit limit and if you track record of payment is good, the bank might award you a further credit limit without further deposit to the account.

In my line of work, dish network are also used on the oil rigs and platforms as the main source of communication. It plays a really important part in getting the internet connection needed to send data to the data center all over the world for processing, phone communication using VOIP which is much cheaper than satellite phones as well as video conferencing. The dish network deals a high impact in closing the communication bridge with the oil rigs and platforms to the main office which really helps a lot in making things done faster.

In rural areas, the people can benefit a lot from the dish network. Besides getting entertainment for themselves, the high speed internet connection will make them be able to communicate with the rest of the world and catch up with the technology to make sure they are not left behind. The special dish network offers a great advantage from the other internet service provider method of delivering internet like DSL, cable, T1 connection and dial up connection because they are portable and they are not wired. This means they can take it wherever they want as long as they have power source for the dish network unit. This makes dish network is almost unbeatable in the rural areas since wired internet service provider will not take the risk of expanding their network to the rural areas where there are limited subscribers and can’t cover the cost they have to bear in expanding their network.

What’s the deal with Cuban cigars?

I’m a hardcore smoker and I have to admit it although I don’t really like the idea of sounding like I’m proud of it. Anyway, I’m in the process of quitting and it’s a long one though. I can just stop buying and smoking but I don’t really love the idea of my body getting shocked in the first place, so I think I’m going to try the hard way first. Enough about me quitting smoking. I have a few friends that don’t smoke but they surely enjoy the pleasure of smoking Cuban cigars which I don’t really get it.
