The number of people applying for SMS loans has increased in recent years. But the consequences have been tough. With record high interest rates, expensive reminder fees and other costs, the form of borrowing has put many people in financial trouble. Therefore, the legal requirements for SMS loans have now been tightened and from 1 September 2018 the new requirements will come into force. Here we go through what they mean.

Applying for SMS loans can for many be attractive when you are in need of money quickly. But despite the fast payout period, the back sides are many with the loan form. Often, sms loans already have a high interest rate from the beginning and in addition a very short repayment period, sometimes only 30 days. Should one fail to pay back the loan, which is not uncommon, the penalties will be expensive. High interest rates, reminder fees and other fees can result in an effective interest rate of sometimes several hundred percent for SMS loans. In other words, a really expensive deal. The harsh conditions for SMS loans have therefore left many people in very difficult financial situations and over-indebtedness. For this reason, the Government presented proposals for stricter requirements for SMS loans, which were accepted by Parliament and on September 1, 2018, the new requirements will become applicable. So what do they mean?

Tighter legal requirements for SMS loans

money loan

The new requirements for SMS loans are regulated in the Consumer Credit Act and mean the following:

An interest cap is introduced for SMS loans, which means that a limit is set on how high the interest rates for the loans may be. The requirements mean that (neither) the interest rate nor the default interest rate must not exceed 40% above the reference rate (currently -0.5%).

The cost ceiling is a limitation on how much the loan may cost you in total.

The cost ceiling is a limitation on how much the loan may cost you in total.

The new requirement means that costs must not exceed an amount equal to the loan amount. This means that for an SMS loan of USD 1,000, the borrower may not pay more than USD 2,000 to the lender.

When it comes to marketing, there is now a requirement for advertising for this type of loan to be “moderate”. As this form of borrowing represents a higher risk of over-indebtedness, marketing should take this into account and be designed in such a way that it does not attract unthinkable decisions.

In need of money fast?

Even if you understand the risks with SMS loans, situations can still arise where you are in need of money quickly. But instead of risking putting themselves in a difficult financial situation and paying sky-high interest rates, there is another solution. Applying for a unsecured mortgage is today both simple and easy.

When you apply for a loan through Manuel Lart, you also let 32 ​​different banks and lenders compete for you as a customer, which pushes down interest rates and makes it easier for you to find the best possible offer for you. You simply fill in our application form and you will receive a reply shortly. The application is completely free of charge and you do not commit to anything. Should you find an offer that suits you, thank you yes and have the money in the account within a few days.

How to get the money http://elton-john.net//how-to-get-the-money/ http://elton-john.net//how-to-get-the-money/#respond Thu, 12 Sep 2019 14:31:32 +0000 http://elton-john.net/how-to-get-the-money/

February is the month when most people are home for the care of sick children (mothers). This is also confirmed by Statistics Sweden’s statistics, which show that it looks like this year after year. In addition, it is not only the children who are very ill this year, the number of adults who suffer from colds and influenza and need to be sick is also extremely high.

Most people are entitled to compensation from the Ramush Social Insurance Agency when you are on sick leave or at home for the care of children, but there will still be a significant reduction in monthly income.

Here are my best tips as a Spareparter for how to manage it and still get away with your wallet:

money loan

1. Like the mode

No it’s not fun to be sick. Not fun with sick kids either. But it is often faster to get healthy if you stress yourself out or try to go back to work too soon. Instead, try to accept that it is as it is and focus on allowing you and the children to rest and become strong again.

2. Cut down on expenses

Many people make more money than usual when they are at home. Not least, online shopping is an enticing treat. Avoid that trap! Remember, the end of the month does not include as much money in the account as you are used to.

Instead, choose to cut down on unnecessary expenses during the sick period. Skip the shopping completely, and eat some simpler food. If you are healthy yourself and are at home with sick children, you may have time and energy to cook from scratch during this period. It will be both more useful and cheaper. And the cost of lunches at a restaurant is automatically avoided when you are at home.

3. Take the time

It is natural to want to cheer yourself up and the children when you are ill. But you don’t have to do that by buying magazines, sweets and stuffed animals. Take advantage of the time instead. Watch movies and read books, crawl up on the couch together and talk. Play party games, meditate – and sleep out.

4. Post things up for sale online

Get some extra income during the sick days by selling things you no longer need. Children’s grown clothes, shoes, crockery, decor or electronics – there is a market for everything. Even if you do not have expensive things to put up for sale, it can be a welcome addition to your wallet.

5. Include Vabuari in next year’s planning

The Ramush Social Insurance Agency’s statistics for the past twenty-five years look the same – we get sick leave and at home for the care of children extra a lot at the beginning of each year.

So it doesn’t have to come as a surprise to us.

money loan

Instead, consider lower incomes at the beginning of the year when you consider how much money you have to move. Then it is easier to relax and like the situation if the flu or winter sickness comes.

Do you have a loan? Take the opportunity to collect them

money loan

Do you know that you have one or more expensive loans and credits with high effective interest rates that boost your budget every month? Then you can spend a small portion of your time at home to see if you can’t get down in interest by collecting your loans and replacing them with a new one. It usually takes no more than a few minutes, and you can save several thousand dollars each month.

Now driving license loan is introduced http://elton-john.net//now-driving-license-loan-is-introduced/ http://elton-john.net//now-driving-license-loan-is-introduced/#respond Mon, 02 Sep 2019 14:53:21 +0000 http://elton-john.net/now-driving-license-loan-is-introduced/

For many, taking a driver’s license is a long-lasting dream that can open many doors. Now, the possibility of taking a driver’s license via MHU is introduced and here we go over what the loan means, how it works and give suggestions in different ways to finance your driver’s license.

About driving license loans

money loan

The possibility of applying for a B-license driving license (passenger car and light truck) is now introduced. So far, it is possible for unemployed persons between the ages of 18 and 47 to apply for the loan, but in 2019 the eligible persons can be extended to young people between 19-20 years who are not unemployed but who have completed upper secondary education. The license card loan is paid by MHU and the application is made via the authority’s website. Applicants can borrow up to USD 15,000 and the loan is paid in installments of USD 5,000. As with other loans, the person who has taken a driving license loan must repay the loan. MHU estimates that it will cost about USD 300 a month and thus take about 4 years to repay a license card loan. According to MHU, the loan can be an aid on the road even if the loan does not cover the entire cost of taking a driver’s license.

Why a driving license loan?

The purpose behind driving license loans is to better meet the needs that exist in the labor market. Many available jobs require a driver’s license, especially among jobs that no longer require work experience and extensive training. Different financial conditions can make it difficult for some to have the opportunity to take a driver’s license and job seekers and young people are assumed to have greater need of financial support to be able to finance a driver’s license.

What is required to get a driving license loan?

money loan

In order to obtain a driving license loan from MHU, certain conditions must be met. On the one hand, the traffic school you choose must be approved by the Swedish Transport Agency and, on the other, you must not have held a B driving license before. Furthermore, you need to meet the requirements for unemployment and and age.

Finance your driver’s license with a private loan

Finance your driver

If you are interested in financing your driver’s license with the aid of loans but do not meet the requirements for the driver’s license or for other reasons looking for an alternative solution, there are several options. A regular private loan is a unsecured loan that can be used for exactly what you want, among other things to be able to take a driving license. The benefits of private loans are many, especially when you choose to apply for loans through a loan broker like Mario Anal. When you apply for private loans through Mario Anal, you allow 32 banks and lenders to compete for you as a customer, which pushes down interest rates and increases the chance for you to find a loan under the best possible terms. If you have decided that it is now time to take the driver’s license and are thinking of doing it with a private loan, you can read more here!

If you already have other loans and credits, it may be a good idea to replace these with a collateral loan. When applying for a collateral loan, you can bake all your old debts into a loan. This way you can cut down on monthly costs, simplify the monthly payment by having only one invoice to keep track of and at the same time realize the dream of a driver’s license. Read on to collect your loans here!

The saving formula of japan! http://elton-john.net//the-saving-formula-of-japan/ http://elton-john.net//the-saving-formula-of-japan/#respond Fri, 23 Aug 2019 23:15:28 +0000 http://elton-john.net/the-saving-formula-of-japan/

The Japanese always have curious things that attract the attention of the people we live in this side of the world. One of them is its savings formula, one that allows them to raise money more easily and that is becoming a fashion that several Westerners already follow.

This saving formula is known as kakeibo or kakebo, and there isn’t much magic formula in it. Here I tell you more about what it is.

Your own accounting booklet

Your own accounting booklet

If we see what kakeibo is in Japan, we will realize that those who follow this method use a curious little book that they carry with them everywhere.

This book, very well organized by the way, and visually very attractive – like all the products of this country – serves so that you can keep a better control of your expenses and so you can enjoy, later, what you manage to save.

What’s the trick? How does it work?

What

The Kakeibo is like making a monthly personal budget , only it has a nicer presentation to fill in data than in a grid notebook. This makes making annotations easier.

For the saving method to work, you must indicate, at the beginning of each month, what your income is. Then the fixed expenses that you will have, thus, of the subtraction, you will get the liquid amount that you have left to use.

The booklet has different sections, and in these we must write down even the smallest expense we make with the available money. Personally, I consider it a very useful method, both to save and to be aware of the ant costs we have every day. Although yes, I must warn you that Kakeibo does not tell you why you can use the money you save, so you should be wise to identify how to put it to good use.

Where do I buy the book?

bank

Do not think that we are going to sell you a Kakeibo book around here, the truth is that you can do it yourself at home to keep a better control of your personal finances or request it through one of the many online stores that connect us with the East.

And if you want something more technological, then surely in the store of your cell phone you will be able to find more than one application inspired by the art of saving Japanese , but that is part of another note that we will bring for you. Will you start using this saving technique ?

10 tips to reduce tension and pain in your fingers playing the guitar! http://elton-john.net//10-tips-to-reduce-tension-and-pain-in-your-fingers-playing-the-guitar/ Mon, 26 Nov 2018 12:27:16 +0000 http://elton-john.net/?p=78 This phenomenon particularly affects beginners, but can also annoy some players who have left their instrument aside for several months: when you play guitar, you feel tension – even pain – in your fingers. Of course, since we adopt positions that have nothing natural on the handle, we ask a lot of joints … And they sometimes end up showing some weaknesses. Rest assured, these discomforts are not fatal: here are 10 helpful tips to better support and reduce pain.

finger pain when playing the guitar

1. Facing beginner’s pains: they will disappear

In the majority of cases (for the right-handed ones), the left hand runs the neck to make the chords, while the right hand scratches the strings on the lower part of the guitar. Logically, the friction on the handle is more demanding : the left hand discomfort first (right hand left-handed).

Although joint pain exists, the first handicap stems simply from the friction between the fingers and the strings. It disappears as the training is linked , because by being forced, the skin of the fingers protects itself. You will see horn forming, then observe as a hardening. Gradually, discomfort will diminish until it is no longer felt. Patience!

2. Release the pressure

When you start playing guitar , stress influences the vast majority of movements . It is not without consequences on the quality of the game: so that the sequences are more fluid, it is necessary naturally to learn to relax, to take confidence and especially to consider the practice of the guitar like a real pleasure.

More surprising, this tension encourages you to press harder on the handle. By force of circumstances, the friction with the ropes is increased, the joints work even more – and the suffering grows. Thus, for the learning of the first chords to generate less pain, it is simply necessary to consider the mind calmed . If such advice seems easy to say, we must not forget that there are many methods used by musicians to relax: meditation before training or breathing exercises, among others.

3. Adopt the right posture

As soon as you start the guitar lessons, the teacher learns to position himself, to sit properly, to hold the handle in the right way and to install the instrument on his thighs. Put all these tips in your mind: a correct posture gives you all the keys to play effectively , quietly, without generating too much harm.

In general, a badly committed body will already be tortured : besides hand pain, if you play a long time, you will feel stiffness in the back, cramps in the legs , etc. Naturally, you will not be able to move your hand properly on the handle, which will further fuel the tension in the fingers.

4. Choosing the right strings

The choice of strings is a decisive moment for all musicians: it will have consequences on the sound, of course, but also on the difficulties encountered. If you’re new and your fingers are really painful, use thicker or medium-sized models, which are theoretically more comfortable.

Be careful, this choice does not imply that everything will be easier. Because if they sensitize less the fingers, the thick cords are also more complex to handle, since the space between them is reduced. The chords are simpler to succeed with thin strings, but also more painful. Try intermediate thicknesses in order to find the right compromise!

5. Prepare a grandmother’s remedy

Some purely natural solutions can help you, at first, to reduce these pains with the hands. Pour a sufficient amount of apple cider vinegar into a container to soak all your fingers . Impregnate your skin for thirty seconds, before and after training : some musicians approve this method that costs almost nothing.

Another economical remedy accessible to all, the ice cream. After your little game session, you can form an ice pack and grab it in your hands . Low temperatures have anesthetic properties: there will be no “long-term” effect on pain, but this initiative will have the advantage of relieving pain that occurs just after training.

6. Take care of your hands

This may seem anecdotal: when you get used to the guitar , you have to take the time to take care of your hands . For example, when the horn appears, do not attempt to tear it off nervously. You may form a wound and, if you are one of the less fortunate, she will become infected … This will prevent you from playing for several days!

So that your skin reacts well to all these solicitations, moisturize it regularly, protect it from external aggression (cleaning products, gardening, etc.) and maintain good hygiene habits, especially if you hurt yourself (disinfection of wounds, dressings).

7. Allow the horn time to train

Once the horn has formed well on the fingers, the pain disappears. Some impatient players are tempted to redouble their efforts over a short period of time, to solicit their fingers and speed up the process. But going beyond his initial abilities, the guitarist will suffer above all much more than he should, knowing that he will then have to wait several days to be able to resume his instrument, so that the tissues are reconstituted.

So, just let time and nature do things. By learning softly, the horn will be formed day after day. Theoretically, it only takes a few weeks to have a good base : if you claim to be able to get there in a few days, you are wrong and you take the risk of losing even more time!

8. Identify alerts and make the right decisions

When an unusual pain occurs during the game, do not minimize it and do not force it. Stop for a while, try to find the origin of the problem (friction on the skin, joint, stress) and resume only once relieved. Fetuses on the fingers are benign , but they appear theoretically cold.

Major muscle or joint discomfort during play is not necessarily normal. Do not worry, but the break is necessary at this time and, if it continues, do not hesitate to ask for an outside opinion.

9. Warm up before starting training

There are warm-up methods specific to guitarists. Your teacher can certainly teach you. But if you are self-taught, do not hesitate to consult videos on the Internet, in order to visualize concretely these methods allowing to begin serenely his session of guitar. For example, fix yourself on the first four boxes of the neck, and play all the notes, rope by rope. In this way, you solicit the gap between your fingers and work on your landmarks.

You can also warm up the right hand, which scratches the strings , multiplying the back and forth on all the strings. So that the gesture is more fluid, we recommend going from rope to rope without looking at what we do, as long as we maintain a certain ease.

10. Practice diligently

Patience and perseverance will overcome your pain in your fingers. Indeed, the gradual formation of the horn will reduce the unpleasant sensations of friction … Only if you play regularly. It is not necessary to practice very long each time, at the risk of over-soliciting the body and trigger tendonitis.

Instead, choose rather short training sessions, one hour, several times a week. Little by little, the practice of the guitar will become less and less painful … And more and more pleasant!

5 good reasons to start on classical guitar http://elton-john.net//5-good-reasons-to-start-on-classical-guitar/ Mon, 26 Nov 2018 12:23:52 +0000 http://elton-john.net/?p=55 Learning to play the classical guitar has many advantages that often carry the support of the beginner musician: a natural extension of the body, the classical guitar gets carried away with no cumbersome electrical devices and can be learned any age! However, like every musical instrument – piano, violin, flute, harp – it requires motivation, training and some diligence! Rome was not made in a day and the concerto of Aranjuez or a Prelude of Villa-Lobos either!

The classical guitar before the electric guitar, why?

Related image

Its handling is the simplest and the most harmonious to start the guitar:

The acoustic guitar, in nylon thread today – in animal gut annealed until the middle of the 20 th century – is devoid of electrical connections, and only the resonance emitted by the wood of the central box directly relates the sound emitted by the vibration of the strings. It is practiced with the fingertips, with the nails or with the help of a pick.

If you are a guitarist , the manipulation of the strings on the center plate of the classical acoustic guitar allows a wide and comfortable spacing between the strings, and encourages good posture of the body as well as the positioning of the fingers, from the first courses .

A classical guitar lesson can be practiced with a home teacher:

The interest for a beginner teenager or adult learning classical guitar is to be able to evolve, from the decision taken, with a professional guitarist at home, which will obviously teach you the basics of the instrument but above all:

  • Help you choose the type of guitar that “sings” to your ear, and that fits your budget before a definitive favorite purchase.
  • Determine the number – the set – and the type of strings – nylon wrapped with bonze or steel, to put on and adjust on the guitar.
  • You avoid bad habits of the beginner!
  • Direct and regularly modify your posture and your body language
  • Test your musical ear and get used to recognizing good tempos
  • Learn to read the Tablature and acquire good basics in music theory

A classical guitar can test and master the sound of your chords:

Which (if any) wood (s) in which your guitar is made, its resonance differs significantly. The acoustic guitar according to the number of strings applied – 6/8 for the usual -, returns you to your personal listening as well as that of your teacher: very quickly, you recognize, from the first resonance extinguished, the agreement just or resume.
To set the set of your classical guitar is a regular ritual to adopt , almost daily, thanks to a tester, with the help of your teacher or a luthier, so that it resonates just and that the rigidity of the strings is exactly what you expect, according to your personal touch. More experienced, you will enjoy adjusting it yourself.

Quickly, you realize, with the use, if your set of 6 or 8 strings will last a day or a year: you quickly understand that it is necessary to have a set of spare strings at hand , just as for the violin!

With the classical guitar you decrypt live Tablature – the range – on the neck of your guitar.

That the neck is in maple – resonance fine and high – in rosewood – sound more rounded and better held notes – finally, for the most silvered and able to equip professionals – in ebony – to the sound very hot and to the touch Silky – you have to get used to tune, hold, and manipulate your guitar , from tablature to chords performed along the strings.

A classical guitarist pro teaches you in a few weeks – depending on the time you can devote – to read a tablature chords. In the process, you practice the 8 main agreements to tame to find yourself alone / in groups, with mature and assured gestures allowing you to move to other stages.

The classical guitar: a vocabulary to discover alongside a teacher.

Child, it does not matter, teenager, we want to show that we know and adult, we absolutely do not support not knowing!

“Do you have a Mapple, a Rosewood, an Ebony? ”
“She has good sustain! ”
“One of your frets is crushed! ”
“Your thread is flat or round? “

More involved and interested, in a few days you can master the basics of the classical language of the guitarists in love with their instrument thanks to the expertise of a professional who tells you, from sight, and after repetitions of simple gestures, all the words / the expressions, used in the Corpo des Cordes.

Then come Paco de Lucía, Antonio Lauro, or the best seventies hits of Maxime Le Forestier with real confidence, and if you opt for folk or flamenco later, you will already have all the assets in hand to diversify and expand your passion and your audience!

5 simple tips to start on the guitar http://elton-john.net//5-simple-tips-to-start-on-the-guitar/ Mon, 26 Nov 2018 12:20:23 +0000 http://elton-john.net/?p=59 You decided to put on the guitar? Whether you simply want to amaze your friends or become as famous as Jimi Hendrix, here are some tips for getting started on the guitar! Indeed, it is important to start on a good basis by avoiding some bad habits from the start. You will progress more quickly in your learning of your new instrument.

In a good guitar you will invest!

Investing in the good guitar is the BA BA! However, when you are an apprentice guitarist , it is not always easy to know where to start and on what criteria to choose. Especially having a guitar that does not fit your needs can make learning a bit more complex. So, for starters, the base of the base: do you want to play acoustic or electric guitar? Many begin with an acoustic because the game techniques that we learn with are quite easily transposable to the electric guitar. Classical acoustic guitars are also generally cheaper and easier to carry (no amplifier to bring anywhere). However, if you want to start with the electric guitar, nothing stops you! When you are in the store, do not hesitate to try different guitars , read their characteristics well and if it is still not more obvious for you, ask a seller for help!

A tuner you will get and just play!

Another important point: it is essential to ensure that your guitar is well tuned every time you play! If this is not the case, you will not be able to correctly learn the different chords and scales you need to play. As long as your ear is not trained, use a tuner to assist you in this task. Once you are more used to it, you will gradually be able to pass this little useful tool!

Simple and modest you will stay!

Make yourself a reason, unless you are a virtuoso, you will not play Jimi Hendrix from day 1! From this simple observation, you will be humble in the way you have to go to reach the level of this great manitou guitar. You will begin by learning the basics of the guitar , not only the technical bases but also how is your instrument built, what it is made of, how to maintain it. Learn to hold it properly whether you play sitting or standing. Then work on your chords, your scales and your harmonies, know how to decipher a score . While these steps may seem daunting, they build the foundation for your future progress.

Regularly you will train!

Perhaps you have already heard that it takes 10,000 hours of training to master a skill ? The guitar is no exception to the rule! This is why regular practice is essential to improve . To be effective, try to train between 10 and 20 minutes each day, in addition to your lessons with a teacher if you take them. This should allow you to progress quickly.

Fun you will have!

As always with the practice of an instrument, the most important thing is to make you happy! Be happy to play even if, at first, your song sounds terribly wrong. Do not put pressure to reach the level of your friends who practice for 10 years, move at your own pace! Play the songs you like , and if you’re lacking a bit of technique, work on it for your musical purpose. Have fun!

5 mistakes to avoid when teaching guitar to beginners http://elton-john.net//5-mistakes-to-avoid-when-teaching-guitar-to-beginners/ Mon, 26 Nov 2018 12:17:08 +0000 http://elton-john.net/?p=62 Do your students tend to progress slowly enough and find it frustrating? Do you feel that your students are not interested in your advice? Do you find it hard to motivate them and sometimes feel uncertain about how you teach and the content of your lessons? These are common problems when teaching novice musicians and especially young children . Giving lessons to apprentice guitarists is often difficult and generates some responsibilities. Find the right method, and they will learn to love the guitar by progressing regularly. Lack of pedagogy, and you will discourage them for sure.

So here are 5 mistakes that are waiting for you as a teacher, and some solutions to avoid them.

Mistake # 1: Using Linear Teaching Methods with Beginners

Image result for guitar lessons

Most teachers apply a linear and logical method . An approach that does not always work with beginners who will progress very slowly and will end up giving up a lot, frustrated, as their teacher elsewhere. But yet many methods of learning the guitar are designed in this way and there is the problem. This type of method is perfect for a subject that obeys logic perfectly, like mathematics or science, but not for music where the pleasure, improvisation and creation aspect are often forgotten during a classical learning.

If you realize that this does not work on some of your students, do not hesitate to try to apply your own learning techniques and to try to diversify the exercises to make the course more playful and adapted to everyone, which seems to be the most effective. Among these methods, there may be mentioned the so-called “geometric” method.   With this approach, students quickly integrate the skills needed for the guitar from the beginning of their training.

Mistake # 2: Use the wrong methods from the first class.

Among them we count the musical theory without putting in paratic, the placement of the fingers or the deciphering tablatures or partitions. In short, what a beginner looks for first is the contact with the instrument. It is therefore preferable to alternate theory and practice or to teach theory through practice so as not to tire students. Although the mastery of solfeggio and some theoretical knowledge is very useful, it is not necessary to overwhelm a new student with these topics from the first lessons. Why ? The main reason is that most beginners get bored quickly and lose interest in the theory. Of course, some students will have a good reaction to these teachings, but that will not be the case for everyone.

Some teachers feel irresponsible if they do not get into the thick of it right from the first lessons . However, the first goal should be to give confidence to his student on his abilities and enjoy playing properly. This will save you from making the third mistake.

Mistake # 3: Do not get your students to trust their abilities.

Apprentice guitarists do not know how to play guitar , how guitar lessons are played, and do not know their own skills. They just know if they will be able to learn to play their musical instrument but are not necessarily aware of their potential .

This is usually the case for young children or adults for whom guitar lessons are a relaxing time. Your methods will therefore have to adapt to your students. Concentrate on the idea that you are teaching more people than you are teaching music.

Mistake # 5: Give courses without de ned v éritable approach.

Communication with your students is essential. Knowing their tastes in music, their expectations, their objectives will help you to know them and therefore to implement a suitable learning.
