I Wanted to Get Settled in Quickly

  • Posted on April 17, 2017 at 4:30 am

I was looking forward to moving to Marietta once I graduated from college. I know everyone expected me to stay in Vermont since that is where the majority of my friends and family are, but I always knew in my heart that I was going to head south. I applied for a teaching position at a Marietta school, and I was hired after just one interview. I had a couple of months before I had to show up for my first day, but I still looked at Marietta GA apartments online because I wanted to get everything situated well before my first day of school.

I looked at several complexes that are real close to where I will be teaching, but there was one thing or another wrong with all of them. I did not just go by the website for the apartment complex but the review sites for the area as well. I figured that the management team will show me the good, but I wanted to know the bad and the ugly too.

I Had to Get out of the City to Find Some Peace

  • Posted on April 12, 2017 at 4:30 pm

When I was just out of school, I got an apartment in downtown St. Louis. I wanted to experience urban living after growing up on a farm. I got a decent job in the city, and things were going along okay for a few months. Then I got tired of the routines and pace of city living. I wanted something a bit more relaxed, and I figured the suburbs would be a good compromise between the rural I grew up with and the urban I was now experiencing. I checked out an apartment finder for Florissant MO to find a place outside of the city. I had been using mass transit, and that was another thing I just could not get used to. I would go in early to work and stay late just to avoid rush hour.

Trying to Figure out House Buying

  • Posted on April 12, 2017 at 4:30 pm

We have been working on this for a good while, obviously thinking about the process of buying a home while we save up the money that we need for a down payment. It does really seem a lot like you need to think about the top Denver realtors to help you with the process. Once you start looking into the difficulties you realize that doing the thing on your own is going to be really tough. There is just a great deal of stuff that you need to learn and you are likely going to be better off paying a person who knows what they are doing to help you out. It is pretty complicated to figure out how to deal with the banks, who are quite obviously going to try to look out for themselves and make sure that they only make a loan when it is in their interest to do so.

I Found the Best Apartment and Perfect Boyfriend

  • Posted on April 12, 2017 at 4:30 pm

I had been checking to find the best Goodlettsville apartments for a month or so, when I found a place that sounded like a good deal. There were photos in the ad that I stumbled across, and I was attracted to the place right away. I then surfed to their website to get more info about the place. I sent an inquiry to ask about the price, and received back an answer that told me that I could afford to live there no problem. I was eager to get out of the place I was living, so I decided to rent the place that I had learned about via the want ad. It was going to be really exciting for me to move up to a nicer place for no more money than I was already paying monthly.

I spent about three weeks packing up all my belongings. I have a lot of stuff and I wanted to get rid of things that I did not want to take to the new place. I had a yard sale outside in the apartment complex, and a lot of other people in the building bought most everything that I put out for sale. Then, I wanted to make sure that I really packed up everything very carefully so that nothing would become broken and ruined during the move. After that was done, a moving company came over and put everything into a big truck and moved it to the new place.

One of the guys who helped me move my things was really nice. He flirted with me quite a bit, and after the move was finished, he got up the nerve to ask me out. We have been dating for about two years now. We plan to get married and we will still live in the same apartment after we are married.

Paying the Same Rent and Getting a Whole Lot More Apartment

  • Posted on April 7, 2017 at 4:30 am

Our landlord has upped the rent three years in a row. The problem is that he is not doing anything with the place to justify the increase. We were staying because we liked our neighbors next door a whole lot. When they told us that they found other apartments near McDonough GA that were the same rent but you get a lot more, I was wondering what they meant. They showed my wife and I a website online for apartment homes at Crossings at McDonough. The pictures of the apartments looked very nice, so we all decided to take a drive over to see what they had.

The first place we looked at was perfect for us, and it had an open apartment next door that was available. It matched the floor plan they needed for their family with kids and so did the one we looked at. The person who was showing us the place showed us a few more, but we really liked the first two. We would have a fireplace, there was a laundry room in the apartment just off from the kitchen, and it had hookups for a washer and a dryer.

The Anonymity Of Panama Offshore Corporations

  • Posted on July 24, 2017 at 11:08 pm

Panama offshore corporations are the most anonymous in the world. You can conduct all the business you would in your home country, all while knowing that your assets are safe and silently put away. Usually anonymity in the business world spells the end of a business, but not when you are looking to protect your assets. Panama has strict secrecy laws to ensure that this is a reality.

Panama corporations can either be owned by the persons who physically hold the bearer shares, or they are owned by foundations. In a bearer share corporation, the holder of the shares is not publicly recorded anywhere, so the owner can remain anonymous. Panama law states the foundations have no owners, so in the case of foundation ownership of corporations, there would be a layered effect of anonymity making the “corporate veil” iron clad. In a bearer share corporation, the holder of the shares is not publicly recorded anywhere, so the owner can remain anonymous.

It should be noted that the only publicly recorded items are the articles of Incorporation. The articles of Incorporation for offshore corporations in Panama will list the directors of the corporation. This means the names of the directors are publicly registered, so any director will have their names there for all to see.These directors can be provided to you by your law firm. Any firm will provide nominee directors for a corporation. They will also provided signed, undated letters of resignation to you so you can change the directors at any time. If anonymity is a priority stick with the nominee directors provided and anonymity can be guaranteed.

Panama corporations can either be owned by foundations, or they are owned by the persons who physically hold the bearer shares. Panama law states the foundations have no owners, so in the case of foundation ownership of corporations, there would be a layered effect of anonymity making the “corporate veil” iron clad. In a bearer share corporation, the holder of the shares is not publicly recorded anywhere, so the owner can remain anonymous.

So, when looking into offshore asset protection in to form of corporations, the strict secrecy and privacy laws of Panama are second to none.

Economic Instability Drives Gold Investment

  • Posted on July 16, 2017 at 11:37 am

During times of economic instability, investors naturally seek to find a way to minimize any potential losses and invest in assets that will hold their value. One such investment is gold, a traditionally popular choice during economic volatility for a number of factors.

Investors during these periods often look to diversify their portfolios away from the stock market which fluctuates with the economy and is therefore at risk of crippling losses of value, losing money for investors over years or even decades. Gold is an obvious choice for many investors because gold is not linked to the economy in the same way that stocks are. As gold has been used as currency across much of the world in the past, it is not tied to one particular government or economy, which causes it, in effect, to be a global, international form of currency. While it is not impervious to fluctuation, these changes aren’t linked to economies and therefore much less likely to lose investors’ money during a downturn.

Gold does not depreciate in value, partly due to the fact that it is not only an internationally recognised currency but also a commodity. Hence, during unstable periods, gold is a wise choice; stocks can fail but gold will not, or at least not to such a drastic extent. It will always be in demand, not least because large markets like the electronics industry and the jewellery market use it extensively.

For the reason that it acts as a hedge for inflation, gold is seen as a ‘safe’ investment. When stocks and bonds decline, it often follows that investments like gold, which have intrinsic value, actually increase in worth, and are therefore less likely to cause losses. When the economy is suffering from negative interest rates, a situation whereby inflation is higher than the nominal inflation rate, gold is often a sound investment. In these cases saving with a bank is often seen as more high-risk than owning a tangible asset.

Although investing in gold is not a completely sound method of avoiding economic instability and does not ensure fully a hedge against inflation, it does have a proven record of minimizing losses during these times. This is evidenced by the fact that gold held its value through the worst of the last century’s economic crises, the Great Depression and World War Two. This established testimony to gold’s ability to hold its worth is a significant aspect in the tradition of investing in gold during economic problems.

Asean Economic Community (AEC) Free flow of skilled labor

  • Posted on July 13, 2017 at 3:25 pm

Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is an organization which was incorporated according to Bangkok Declaration. ASEAN is aimed to create stability and development in terms of politics, economic, social and culture among the member States. The members of ASEAN are 10 countries in total, namely: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Brunei, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia. The ASEAN has incorporated the -ASEAN Economic Community- with the objective to promote the single market and manufacturing base within Asia. Moreover, it also aims to freely move products, services, investments, capitals as well as skilled labors between the members within year 2015.

As mentioned previously, one of the co-operations between the ASEAN is free movement or freely flow of skilled labors. As a result, Thailand, as an ASEAN member, has already signed the Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRAs) to facilitate the mutual recognition of the qualification of important professions. The MRAs has indicated the qualification of each profession to accommodate the moving of professions and skilled labor within the member countries. Therefore, the professions’ qualifications have to comply with the standard as specified in the MRAs. However, even the freely move of the skilled labor is the main objective of AEC, the regulations of entry permit and working permit have to still comply with each member countries’ rule, for example, the permit or the license for each profession.

Nonetheless, not all professions are moved freely. As yet, ASEAN has started with seven (7) professions, as specified in the MRAs, which are Doctors, Nurses, Engineers, Examiners, Architectures, Dentists and Accountants. The other professions are still in consideration and have not yet agreed between the members. Therefore, the restricted of 39 jobs to Thai national are still reserved for Thai national with the hope that the future mutual agreement between the member shall come into place.

To effect the above, Thailand has to amend three relevant laws which are currently restricted foreigners to work in Thailand: Alien Working Act, Act of Skill Development and Labor Relations Act.

Besides the freely move of skilled labor, the ASEAN has also stipulated the directions or stages of operation of an ASEAN economic; for example, timeline for tariff reduction and timeline for revoking non-tax measures.

ASEAN Still Searching for Consensus on South China Sea Dispute

  • Posted on July 12, 2017 at 11:53 pm

Southeast Asian leaders say they will rush to reach a unified position on resolving competing territorial claims in the South China Sea. During the final day of a key Association of Southeast Asian Nations leaders summit in Phnom Penh, negotiators struggled to reach a consensus on how to approach the disputes with China.na.

The maritime dispute has become increasingly heated in the last year. China claims ownership of much of the South China Sea, along with four ASEAN states, including the Philippines.

On Wednesday, ASEAN chair Cambodia issued a statement saying that the ten member states have agreed to “intensify efforts” on agreeing to a code of conduct, or CoC, on the dispute.

The question that ASEAN leaders sought to answer this week, is whether China would be involved in those discussions before the group had reached a consensus.

“It must be resolved peacefully in accordance with a rules-based regime and the new element that we’ve introduced is that the drafting of the CoC and the inclusion of the major elements should actually made by ASEAN internally before China is invited,” stated Albert Del Rosario, the Philippines’ secretary of foreign affairs.

ASEAN officials said Wednesday’s pledge to expedite the process is an attempt to reach that consensus as soon as possible.

But the next scheduled meeting on the issue between China and ASEAN is only months away. On Wednesday, other ASEAN leaders said it was important to have a common position in any regional negotiations, but they also left the door open to China’s involvement.

“This is not necessarily a neat sequential process isn’t it. Of course, ASEAN – first and foremost, must have a solid consolidated position,” said Marty Natalegawa, Indonesia’s foreign affairs minister and a former ASEAN chairman. “But at the same time as we proceed, there will be constant communication through the ASEAN-China framework, so that whatever final position ASEAN comes up with will have benefited from having some kind of communication with China,” he said.

It has been 10 years since ASEAN members first agreed in principle to reach a consensus on the South China Sea. Yet member nations still have failed in seeking a common approach to govern negotiations with China. The issue has become increasingly heated in the last year, particularly with maritime confrontations between China and the Philippines.

Although they failed again to reach a consensus, Natalegawa says this week discussions were a positive step.

“The big picture is one that must not be lost – now we have a situation where all are basically rushing to get the CoC off the ground. Which was not the case before. Now we have China wanting to come in and ASEAN wanting to finalize the CoC as soon as possible,” said Natalegawa. “This is all good dynamics.”

The next ASEAN leaders’ summit is scheduled for November, also in Cambodia.
