A true fanatic would rather watch the 1973 Super Bowl on one of the random ESPN channels, rather than watch any new CSI or Mad Men. He also knows that the only part of the news worth watching is the last five minutes for the update on the local athletic teams. In order to have access to sporting events 24 hours a day, every day of the year, one must have satellite TV.With cable, there is only enough programming for the amateur sports fan. Satellite, on the other hand, offers five or more ESPNs, the Big Ten Network, CBS College Sports and the Tennis Channel. All the major leagues also have their own channel. If mainstream isn’t your thing, try the Outdoor Channel, the Sportsman Channel or Speed. Not to mention you still get all those channels that cable offers: TNT, TBS, USA, the Golf Channel, Fox Sports, etc. Not to mention that you can also watch the major sporting events on the broadcast networks, such as the Olympics or the NBA Finals.If that’s not enough for you, how do seven or eight HBOs sound? Of course, you can catch athletic-related movies on those channels, but there is another offering from HBO that a true fan cannot miss out on. Since 1995, a show has aired that goes behind the scenes and reports on things that happen outside of the arena. The show also features in-depth interviews and focuses on content that broadcast networks may not cover. It has garnered over 15 Emmys. Of course, we are talking about none other than Bryant Gumbel’s Real Sports.Another great feature provided by satellite is the XM satellite radio programming. If for some reason you can’t find a game on TV, you may be able to catch it on one of the radio channels. You can also tune into the talk stations and listen to the analysts chat it up while you are doing something around the house.If you think that you are the master of trivia and statistics, try your luck playing along with Stump the Schwab reruns on ESPN Classic. The true fanatic is filled to the brim with information on games and players. If you can’t get but a few questions right, then it’s time for you to sit down and soak in some more games immediately.In addition to ESPN Classic, you’ll find that all the other sports channels mentioned above will turn every day into game day. There are so many channels that you should never miss your favorite team or player’s match. If you happen to crave the pigskin all day on Sundays, the NFL Sunday Ticket is just the thing for you. It offers more NFL games than any other service available on the market. All 17 weeks of the season are filled with more games than you can imagine. Other packages are available for the other leagues, but this one is an absolute must-have for any football fan.As you can see, there’s a lot that you have been missing out on all these years with cable TV. Isn’t it about time you made your inner fan truly happy again? Stop depriving it of non-stop, around the clock sports action. Satellite can be hooked up and installed before tomorrow night’s game.
After disappointing August 2010 residential home sales results (sales were 25.5% below July 2009 numbers) here comes commercial real estate market. There is some $1.4 trillion of commercial real estate debt coming due by the end of 2014. About 52% of those commercial mortgages are attached to properties that are underwater, according to debt-analysis company Trepp LLC. And as the economic recovery sputters, owners of struggling properties are realizing a big property-value rebound isn’t imminent. This data can be easily supported with Fitch Ratings latest findings in commercial mortgages.According to Fitch Ratings its latest weekly U.S. CMBS newsletter September 2010 brings 126 U.S. CMBS loans to maturity, with almost half of them are in special servicing - either delinquent or in foreclosure.The maturity breakdown by month through December is as follows:
September: 126 loans; $962 million (43% specially serviced);
October: 159 loans; $2.1 billion (34%);
November: 158 loans; $1.6 billion (14%);
December: 176 loans; $1.7 billion (16%).
This trend is likely continue into 2011, when 2,198 fixed-rate commercial mortgage loans (representing $26.5 billion) mature with 17% already in special servicing.Fitch expects loans secured by office, retail, and hotel properties from the 2006 and 2007 vintages to be the most difficult to refinance in 2011. “Recent vintage loans have little or no amortization and are maturing in a higher mortgage rate environment with stricter underwriting standards,” said Fox.So it’s obvious that commercial lenders will have plenty of opportunities to go through some of those loans and pick the best ones. Typically community banks, smaller regional banks and credit unions will have a chance to pick up and restructure some of those loans. The only caveat is that substantial pay down will be required in order to restructure and refinance most of those loans.

Over the past few years, banks and building societies have tightened their lending policies to such an extent that there are virtually no unsecured loans available at the moment. Consumers have therefore looked for other unsecured borrowing and consequently we now have record levels of credit card debt.Despite the base rate of interest remaining at an all time of low of 5%, credit card companies are slowly increasing interest rates; with new rules being imposed on the industry, aimed at giving consumers a better deal, the chances are interest rates will continue upwards. Basically if consumers are getting a better deal, it means the credit card companies will make less money than they would like and therefore look to make up the difference through an increase in interest rates.However, there is one other area of unsecured lending, which has grown massively in the last 3 years and which is getting a lot of press – both good and bad. This other area is Payday Lending.A report by the Consumer Focus watchdog group, claims that the number of people taking out Payday Loans has increased by 400 per cent over the last 4 years. It is estimated that £1.2 billion is borrowed each year now, with 1.2 million people taking an average of 3.5 loans per year, with each loan approximately £300. This is a staggering growth, particularly when interest rates on this type of borrowing range between 2 and 5000 per cent.Not surprisingly, with interest rates at such a high level, a large number of people believe this is nothing more than legalised loan sharking; it is claimed the lenders pray on the most vulnerable people of society.So what is Payday Lending exactly and why would anybody agree to such a high interest rate?Payday lending is aimed at people who require a small loan of between £100 and £1200 and who want this money immediately.Applications are made online mostly – although there are some “bricks and mortar” companies, the bulk of transactions are conducted on the internet.In some cases there is no credit check carried out, which can be a major attraction of course. With applications where there is a credit check made, the lenders may well still lend even if the credit check shows a poor credit history e.g. somebody with a County Court Judgement may still be able to borrow, when other lenders would refuse credit.When applying, the consumer gives the lender their bank and debit card details and also says on what day they get paid. If accepted the money is transferred into their account within a couple of hours.They agree that the lender can take the money (plus fee) direct from their account when funds are available e.g. when they have just been paid -hence the name “Payday Loan”. In theory this is a nice and simple transaction with both sides getting what they need.The interest rates are high for two reasons. The first is that the people who borrow money in this way are by definition high risk. This means that the default rate (people who do not repay the loan) is much higher, and therefore the risk to the lender is high. To cover this risk they charge a higher interest rate.The second reason is that because the loan is due to be repaid over a short period of time (1-30 days), and the interest rate is calculated on an annual basis it makes it look artificially high. Basically the APR quoted assumes you would be paying the same amount of interest every day for a year when in actual fact you should only be paying it for a maximum of 30 days.To put this into perspective, an unauthorised overdraft fee with Lloyds TSB, based on somebody going £200 overdrawn for 10 days would cost the consumer £85.95. Using the APR formula, applied to Payday lending, this equates to an APR of 46, 450 869 per cent – yes that is 46 million per cent!Of course with Payday lending the same as with any other type of borrowing, the fees increase if you do not make the payments you agree to when you initially borrow the money.The Payday Lending industry has not helped itself here with some rogue lenders severely increasing late payment fees and then acting unscrupulously in pursuing the debt. These cases have been well publicised and along with the misunderstanding over interest rates have helped tarnish the reputation of the industry, although as the growth in lending demonstrates they have not really put consumers off.So are Payday Loans our friend, with a place in society along with all other forms of lending, or are they our enemy and to be avoided at all cost?Well the answer is yes and no!Payday loans can be a useful way of resolving an immediate cash crisis, if you have no other access to credit. For example, an unexpected bill or emergency which requires immediate cash e.g. an urgent car repair.However, if you find that you need a Payday Loan every month or so then this indicates a more serious financial issue and you should take a close look at your outgoings. If need be, sit down with a debt management professional and work out the best solution for you, which does not require constant borrowing.The bottom line is that like any form of borrowing the onus is on the consumer to treat a Payday Loan responsibly. Never borrow money unless you know exactly how much you will have to repay and are confident you can meet the repayment plan. If you follow this principle and find yourself short one month then a Payday Loan can be a fast simple solution.
There are many unfair office practices that companies usually overlook and one of these is employment discrimination. This prejudicial act is prohibited by the U.S. Federal Law, and employers who practice this crime are liable to financial penalties. Employers should be aware that employment discrimination involves a big deal of punishment to those who offend this law.As stated by the U.S. Federal Law, here are some of the circumstances as to when employment discrimination could take place:- During hiring of employees- Upon termination of employees’ contracts- During recruitment and training of employees- Whenever there are company promotions- In terms of compensation and other forms of remunerationIt is a must that all employers know everything about employment discrimination. Otherwise, they might do something that could cross the line and they could get penalized. Employers must be fully aware that even though they are in higher positions, they should also pay respect to their employee’s rights. They must practice fair judgments and unbiased decisions at all times.Here are some of the tips for the employers out there so they could check whether they are still practicing correct office etiquettes:1. Employers must not look on the religion, nationality, age, sex, disability or race of their employees.2. Employers must not participate in any investigations when employees report a complaint on possible employment discrimination. Employers must not take this personally and any judgments made must not be based on any other matter aside from the legal ones involved.3. Employers must look on their employees capabilities and qualifications in making decisions such as termination or promotion otherwise if they judge employees based on age, sex, color, religion, national origin or disability, they would be penalized according to the US Federal Law.4. Employers must not base any of their decisions according to employees’ family background. The employees’ family members must not take part or must not be the basis of any actions that employers make for the employee himself.It will be a good practice for every company to provide more than enough knowledge not just to employers but to employees as well regarding employment discrimination. It should be made clear that no other factors could get into any business matters other than employers qualifications, rights and performances.Employment discrimination is not rare, it is actually a big issue especially nowadays so it will be good for employees to get to know their companies more and be fully aware of the practices that go around the business. It is their obligation to know their rights so they would know how and when to defend themselves. On the employers’ part, it is also their obligation to let the employees know the rules and regulations that the company runs and employers themselves must initiate or participate in these given rules.
