Tips To Remember While Choosing A Telescope For Your Kids

Do you have a budding astronomer at home? Well, as a parent or as an elder sibling, you would surely wish to encourage his passion to the fullest. A telescope would be the most fitting gift here to inspire your little one to aim for the stars. But buying a telescope is never a cakewalk for those who are not generally used to with astronomical aides. However, not to worry, the post below offers a brief on the points to remember while buying a telescope for kids.

Know the types

First things first, you have to have a fair idea on the different types of telescopes available.

  • Reflector telescopes

These telescopes feature a mirror where their tubes end that gathers light prior to sending it via another mirror & eyepiece. A reflector telescope is usually compact, promises amazing image quality and is especially great for viewing the faint celestial objects. But it’s open tube tends to collect dirt very fast. So, there are maintenance issues.

  • Refractor telescopes

These are a breeze to use and are fantastic for gazing objects on the earth. It’s to note here, unlike the previous one, this one comes with sealed tube. Thus, you don’t have maintenance issues here. But a refractor telescope is not really great for faint objects in the sky.

  • Compound telescopes

A compound telescope is supposedly the best telescope to see planets clearly. It assures an awesome view of both earth objects and faint celestial objects. But it’s more expensive compared to the other two options.

So, consider your specific needs and budget while deciding on the type of telescope for your kid.

Be careful of magnification

High magnification, say 200x or 300x, does not necessarily promise great view. An increased magnification offers an enlarged view but also leads to fainter image on eyepiece. To find the optimum magnification of your telescope, simply multiply its aperture in mm by 2. You can opt for a telescope with magnifying power below 60x.

Mind the aperture

It’s to note here the aperture of a telescope is its most crucial feature. In fact, it’s the aperture that determines the true power of a telescope. It’s to stress here, larger aperture assures a clear and detailed view of fainter objects in the sky. However, a small scope with 80 mm aperture (3.1” scope) can show full line of galaxies far away if you are a in a dark unpolluted area. But, if you want the same celestial view from an urban location, you will require at least 6-8” telescope.

Simpler mount

There are two types of mounts available for telescopes- altitude-azimuth and equatorial. The first one lets your telescope swing up & down and left & right. The Equatorial one moves in alignment with the earth’s rotation. It’s to note here, the equatorial mount commands a complex setup. When you are buying for a child, it’s better to opt for the simpler altitude-azimuth mount

Finally, make sure to buy a telescope which offers options for upgrade so that you can update the device as your child grows up.

Advantages Of Crazy Bulk Products

Steroids has proven to be one of the most controversial supplements in the body that a lot of body builders use in order to gain muscle mass in a short period of time, and with as little exercise as possible. While it does give you the muscles that you want in terms of looks and bulk, there are a lot of disadvantages that the use of steroids carry. This includes the conversion to estrogen which can cause unwanted enlargement of breasts, and other body side effects including liver damage. Crazy bulk results guarantee the same results as that of steroids, but they give it to you the safe way. With that said, what are the main advantages of Crazy Bulk Products that make them worth availing of, especially their Bulking Stack?

Legal and Safe

Drugs out in the market that are prohibited are those that bring harm to those who take them in, whether as a result of constant taking of it or all in one go. With CrazyBulk, you don’t have to get it from a black market, as you do with most steroids for body building which are illegal. These are natural alternatives to steroids that give you the same effect without putting harm on the body.

No Needles and Prescriptions

Illegal drugs can usually be administered only by a doctor who deems it truly necessary. Steroids taken via needle can also be painful, and can cause infection and swelling in the injection area if it is not done right. Getting Prescriptions can also be a hassle for you, as you would have to set an appointment with a doctor, which would ask for consultation and check-up fees from you and thus cost you more than you would have you taken Crazy Bulk products which don’t really need any of these.

Condominium Investment- Benefit or Detriment?

Investment is many things to many people. It is a boon for some while bane for others. It is not always seen to be successful where you are likely to end up nowhere after disastrous setbacks.

Business ventures have to be thought about and analyzed well in advance before putting them into action. It is a very difficult task to do so that closely involves creativity and innovation.

While different investment structures tend to provide different outcomes based on their market standards, it is still a foolproof policy for income generation and seen as a beacon of hope for businessmen and investors.

The real estate investment is talked about most often when it comes to dealing with investing in properties related to lands, buildings and other infrastructures that have been seen giving out profitable outputs in these past few decades.

The problem here is that many of the potential businessmen out there want to achieve everything in one go without giving a thought to the risks, trials and tribulations involved, not to mention the money and resources that have to be invested in the projects in question.

Real estate is one field where investment is made on properties that involve lands, buildings and other infrastructures that are considered to be the most worthy enough to be investing into as they have the capacity to provide fruitful, monetary benefits in the near future.

Fortunately for investors, the prospects of business getting the desired financial gains are generally high, especially in the past decade as there has been a slew of real estate projects that have been seen to have great potential and can guarantee a bright future in the offering if invested into wisely with time and resources, though limited, have been utilized with utmost sincerity and honesty and not squandered away.

This is a very important step that has to be turned into practice as investment is not limited to any one project venture alone and there are numerous occasions in life that are bound to come up in their respective times where there is a need to invest into something or the other.

Why even your life itself can be seen as an investment prospect as everyone is seen investing their time and efforts for everything that they have to do for which they have taken birth.

You, that is to say human beings, have been born to perform your duties to achieve your end goals for which you plan and organize well in advance and implement them with the utmost dedication, sincerity and commitment.

When we talk about real estate investment, we are talking about properties, especially houses. Here, we are bound to talk about condominium, which can be defined as an apartment that is big enough to be divided into smaller units and occupied by different people at the same time.

It is very similar, in looks and structure, to a detached house or single apartment that houses different flats in the same building where two different houses are adjacent to each other with a common wall in between to separate the houses.

Today, we are going to talk about certain points that need to be seen before investing in condos. But before doing that, there needs to be a special mention about Ola EC, an upcoming hotel firm in Singapore that is to be launched in the next few months that can prove to be a beautiful tourist destination.

4 things to ask yourself before investing in condos:

  1. What are the stipulations that need to be looked into by the lender: If you are investing into condo, then be sure to follow the rules and regulations as many lenders will want a slash of around 25%.
  2. Will you be able to manage everything on your own: The answer is no as the project is gonna be very big and its better to hire a secretary/broker/manager to handle the clients in a better manner.
  3. What are the amenities that you would need: Apart from basic necessities, a condo investment has the added bonus of providing amenities for enjoyment and luxury like gymnasium, swimming pools, sports club etc.
  4. What about the maintenance of property: Fortunately, you will have nothing to do as far as maintenance is concerned as it will be looked after by the respective people who are assigned for the job.

If You’ve Been Declined For Life Insurance, Read This!

Unless you’re rich, chances are you should get some kind of life insurance coverage that will pick up where you left off (when you died) to take care of the continuing expenses of everyday life, your kids college, mortgage payments , bills and others. In many occasions, people who feel perfectly healthy get declined or postponed for life coverage and they can’t figure out why. When they write the insurer for an explanation they usually receive a very ambiguous and puzzling answer like “We were unable to offer you coverage because you don’t meet our current underwriting guidelines.”

About your “former” underwriting guidelines? Do I meet those? Or “…the values in your laboratory results do not meet our criteria for the requested product.” How about a different product? Or “We regret not being able to offer you coverage, your agent will be getting in touch with you soon.” Huh?! I don’t need an agent I need a life policy!

I’ll tell some of the likely reasons why you were declined or postpone. The term “declined” means that after careful evaluation, it has been determined that you are not a good risk, period! The company feel is not even worth it to offer you coverage at a higher premium. Yes, is that bad. There are exceptions to this, like if someone is still on probation or parole, and they have to be off of it before they can be considered for coverage. Or if you had a DUI or driving while intoxicated 3 months ago, you may need to wait a certain amount of time before they can offer insurance, just to make sure that you are not reckless, drunken, public hazard. In general, for the most part, “decline” is not good.

There’s another term that isn’t as terrible, and that is “postponed”. When you are “postponed” it means that the insurer may need additional information on you like medical records, financial statements, dates of treatment, outcome of certain surgery, name or address of a doctor, etc. Also you could be postponed until after an upcoming scheduled treatment or surgery that your doctor ordered. The reason is that being under general anesthesia is always a risk. If you are still under treatment for cancer, or taking narcotic medication, or had heart surgery less than 6 months ago you could be postponed for a predetermined amount of time.

If you are treated for cancer, you need to be in complete remission and off treatment before you are insurable. The narcotic medications are addictive and some people can’t get off of them completely. Some companies won’t issue you coverage until you’ve been narcotics-free for 6 months. “Oh what do they know, I can always lie.” You can, but insurance companies have access to multiple sources of information, and you can be sure that they will find out if you are lying. Never lie on a life insurance applications because if the company later finds out that there are medical records dated prior to the application date, your beneficiaries may not get paid. Depending on the situation, and the State that the policy was sold in, is possible that your lie could be considered as “material misrepresentation” or in other words that you purposely provided false information to the insurer in order to be approved, or approved at a lower rate, in which case the insurer may just return the premiums paid to the beneficiaries, and not pay the full benefits stated on the policy.

If you’ve just began to treat your diabetes, or high blood pressure, the insurer needs to wait a few months to see if you’re keeping your condition under favorable control. If you are postponed you have a chance that after a specific period of time you can re-apply for coverage and after reviewing any new medical, driving, or criminal records there’s a chance that you may be offered a coverage at a regular premium, or if you are not a perfect risk, at a rated premium.

Let’s go back to those of you who feel are healthy, eat well, work out, keep a proportioned height and weight, and still get postponed or declined. Every life insurance company has its own guidelines for evaluating an applicant or proposed insured, meaning you. Some use their own home-grown underwriting guidelines, based on years of accumulated actuarial statistics of thousands of prior insureds and claim experience. Other use guidelines established by their reinsurers. In general, if your lab tests show increased cholesterol ratio, bilirubin, liver enzymes, or blood sugar you could be postponed. Many otherwise healthy people don’t know they have high cholesterol. Some people have naturally elevated liver enzymes even if they never drink alcohol. May be you’re overweight according to the insurance company’s chart. If you know you are not the out of shape-bulging out of your pants type of individual and you are being charged a higher premium due to your build, you should ask your agent for the paramedical examiner to come back and measure your chest and abdomen. If your chest measurements are bigger than your abdomen’s or just about equal, you may be able to dodge paying more for your coverage.

You could be declined for coverage because of your salary. Some agents just want to sell you a policy, don’t really take the care to take into account that your income is too low for the amount of coverage that you’re applying for. The rule of thumb is your annual income times 10. If you make 20,000 a year and you want to get 600,000 you would need to show evidence of additional income. The reason is that you should be worth more alive than dead. If they issue you a life policy for 200,000, this is the amount of money that you would have made in ten years, which would cover your beneficiary’s finances in the event of your untimely loss. But, issuing a policy for 600,000 which is way more than you would have earned in ten years, would be ethically irresponsible since it would be a motive for someone to want to murder you, since now you’re worth more dead than alive. Of course this is just a simplification because if you are younger, you will work for many more years and they would factor this in. Older applicants can only get from 7 to 4 times their annual income if they are after 60. Again, every company has variations on their guidelines so don’t be discouraged, just consult with your insurance agent to make sure that you finances can justify the amount of coverage you need.

Just to be sure of your future and to make it more financially stable you can opt for income protection insurance. You can look online or talk to your insurance advisor about income protection insurance quotes to get a fair understanding of different plans and what you can get from your income.

Your driving record can get you declined. Most companies look at the last 3 years of your motor vehicle records or MVR and if you’ve had a string of speeding tickets, driving intoxicated or other moving violations, it doesn’t matter that you can run at the speed of light, or ride a bike until the wheels catch on fire, you could be declined. Your family history can get you disqualified for a “preferred” classification, meaning you would be issued at a slightly higher premium than someone with no family history of cardiac disease before age 60. If you practice sports like sky diving, scuba diving, B.A.S.E jumping, hang gliding, paragliding or other type of sports that represent a higher than average risk you could be charged an extra premium. Coverage could be denied in some cases depending on how deep and what type of scuba diving you do, like, wreckage, salvage or cave diving. If you have a history of dangerous sports related accidents you could be declined.

When the underwriter (that’s the person who evaluates your application for coverage) reviews your file, they look at the whole picture and this includes your family’s medical history, your medical history, finances, lifestyle, occupation and everything else they can get their hands on. Even the agent’s notes on the “agent’s remarks” portion of the application. Some agents make notes like “client was wearing an oxygen mask” or “noted large number of medications on the kitchen counter”. This notes appear on the app usually when the client denies having any medical history.
