Do You Need To Worry About Your Chronic Pain?

By |January 16th, 2018|Health, XPC|Comments Off on Do You Need To Worry About Your Chronic Pain?

There’s a growing idea in society that as you get older, you simply have to accept that life is going to start taking things away from you. You may, for instance, find that your health isn’t what it used to be. You may experience pain in your body, and your joints will feel stiff. There are plenty of people who just think that this is just one of the signs that you’re getting older. But is that actually true? As a matter of fact, it isn’t, and not everyone who reaches sixty starts to get pains in their leg muscles, their back or the rest of their body. Instead, for many years of retirement, some people stay as fit as a fiddle, perfectly able to keep being active and exercise on a regular basis.

This is perhaps one of the biggest excuses for people who stop exercising when they get older. They claim they can’t exercise because they are in too much pain and, to be honest, they’re probably telling the truth. But, it is important to make the link between the pain they are feeling and the lack of exercise in their life.

Fitting In Fitness

This is the first issue we need to think about here. You need to know that when you don’t exercise, you are missing the workout that your body desperately needs. You need to make sure that you are keeping those limbs movings and stretching those muscles. This is true when you’re younger, and it’s also true as you age. You need to be doing all that you can to keep active. That doesn’t mean that you have to constantly work out. Once or twice a week is more than […]

How A Custom Uniform Could Help Your Sports Team

By |January 16th, 2018|Sports, XPC|Comments Off on How A Custom Uniform Could Help Your Sports Team

Did you know that if you have a customised sports uniform, that this can really benefit your team? All in all, it doesn’t matter what kind of sport you play or how successful your team is because your team should have their own uniform and this can work wonders for their confidence. There are so many psychological benefits to be had when you have your team suited and booted up for the big game and it can even help you to be seen as a unified force as well.

Looking Great

When you have a jersey that identifies your team, this can really help with coordinating and it can also help to give them a great sense of pride as well. Custom gear will give everyone in the team their own identity and you can even assign their own number and names to their jersey or sporting gear as well. Custom jerseys will show your team as the cohesive unit that they are and this can work wonders in clutch moments. The same concept applies to custom track uniforms as well, and you may even be able to boost the number of people who sign up for the team as well!

Team Spirit

The main reason why you should get a uniform is that it really helps with team spirit. When your team have their very own logos printed onto their t-shirts or even onto their hoodies then this means that your team has style. Players who are on the team will feel much more involved and they will also be able to represent who they are both on and off the field. By having a team uniform you can even help to encourage people to be team […]

Herlong to Hold Corrupt Politicians Accountable

By |January 15th, 2018|Featured, Politics, South Carolina, State, Statewide|Comments Off on Herlong to Hold Corrupt Politicians Accountable

From William Herlong:

Yesterday morning I officially announced my candidacy for SC Attorney General. In my announcement, I outlined the core principles for reforming the office of Attorney General and cleaning up the widespread level of ethical corruption in the State House.

Current State Attorney General Alan Wilson recused himself from the ethics probe that has already led to three top state elected officials pleading guilty and many other indictments. If our state government is to function properly, honestly, and fairly, we must have an Attorney General who is honest and independent, someone with experience and good judgment, and most importantly someone who recognizes that the good ol’ boy network is not really any good at all. Unfortunately, our current Attorney General does not meet any of these tests.

The Attorney General is a critical position in our form of government. The AG is the State’s chief legal counsel, chief securities officer, and chief prosecutor. The AG is responsible for protecting the public interest and holding everyone else accountable. The AG’s office has over 200 employees, including nearly 75 attorneys, and a budget of almost $60 million.

I have prosecuted and defended cases of every size, length, and degree of complexity on both the plaintiff and defense sides as part of law firms big and small (Covington & Burling in D.C. and the Wyche Firm and later Nelson Mullins in Greenville) and for the last 13 years on my own. I have also worked pro-bono in the 13th Circuit Solicitor’s office as part of a docket reduction project.  Outside of law, I served two terms on the Greenville County School Board where I promoted operating schools more like a business.

I am convinced the first antidote to corruption is to elect a new […]

Critical Mistakes to Avoid When Building Your Credit Score

By |January 15th, 2018|Financial, XPC|Comments Off on Critical Mistakes to Avoid When Building Your Credit Score

Image Source

If you have recently checked your credit score and you have been shocked by what you have seen (and not the good kind of shock!), you will be looking for different ways to make improvements. The good news is that your credit score is very much rectifiable. However, it does require a careful and considered approach. The last thing you want to do is make a mistake that is going to set you even further back on your quest to achieve a better credit rating. With that being said, let’s take a look at some of the most critical mistakes you need to avoid when trying to build your credit score up again.

Missing a payment – There is only one place to begin, and this is with missing a payment. This is undoubtedly the worst thing you can do. A missed payment will stay on your report for six years, which means you will struggle to get credit within this time frame. If you have too many payments to make and you are finding it difficult to keep a track on everything, you may want to read up on how to consolidate debt. This will make it a lot easier for you to keep on top of your payments to ensure you do not fall any further behind and make the situation even worse.

Making more credit applications – A lot of people don’t realize that credit applications have an impact on their rating. Because of this, they make numerous applications simply to discover whether they would be accepted or not – trying their luck so to speak! This may seem like a harmless search, but it will stay on your report for six months […]

Why Old-School Investors Aren’t Buying Bitcoin?

By |January 12th, 2018|Financial, XPC|Comments Off on Why Old-School Investors Aren’t Buying Bitcoin?

Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple have been making headlines recently. They are the latest investment craze – a new digital asset that can be bought and sold for profit. Despite the popularity, many veteran investors have been keeping their distance. What is about Bitcoin that is putting them off. Here are just four reasons.

It’s not a currency, it’s not a commodity… what is it?

Few people have a true understanding of what Bitcoin is. Designed as a digital currency to make international trading easier and prevent the need for currency transfer fees, Bitcoin could be viewed as a currency. However, it doesn’t follow a lot of the rules of what constitutes a currency – it doesn’t belong to a governing body and you can’t print off notes. At the same time, it’s not really a commodity, although often described as one. The likes of oil, gold, and silver all physically exist, but bitcoin is just a load of digital numbers. Without fully understanding what it is, many old skool investors are put off. Because it’s not affected by real-world events, it’s also difficult to predict its value. Political events can cause a currency to change in value, whilst supply and demand can affect commodity prices. Bitcoin isn’t affected by any of this making it more of a gamble than an investment for many veteran investors.

Prices are extremely volatile

Bitcoin witnessed a huge rise in value last year, but then suddenly before Christmas, it plummeted. Few modern investments these days see such as a dramatic crash. This might be ok if you’re only investing a tiny amount, but if you’re looking to invest a large amount of money as many experienced investors are, Bitcoin is […]

Has The Bitcoin Bubble Burst?

By |January 12th, 2018|Financial, XPC|Comments Off on Has The Bitcoin Bubble Burst?

Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past year, you’ll not have escaped the hype surrounding cryptocurrencies, in particular, bitcoin. The value of this particular unit of virtual money saw a 400% increase in 2017, making it one of the most lucrative financial investments on the planet. While this made many amateur investors wince as they saw bitcoin reach over $15,000 a unit, other more expert traders were awaiting the inevitable crash. While a significant plummet hasn’t so far occurred, what are the chances of bitcoin reaching the same dizzying heights again and is it worth parting with any of your hard earned cash to get hold of any?

It can be hard to analyze a market that is so volatile and financially dangerous. The market is not regulated, has no rules and is largely unsecured with the theft of bitcoin from exchanges all too common. The most experienced traders refuse to enter the world of cryptocurrency. However, many novice investors have struck gold investing in the stuff.

How To Invest

Most people sign up for an exchange, get themselves a bitcoin wallet and purchase the amount they require. They keep an eye on the markets every day and then choose whether to buy or sell based on trends and data. The bitcoin market fluctuates wildly and can be utilized well in the short term if you catch a lucky break. Long-term it requires nerves of steel. Watching up to 40% of the value wiped from your stock in a day can cause a panic attack, but it could just as easily increase by the same amount or more the following day, such is the volatility of cryptocurrency.

Other people now choose to use an IRS […]

The Four Times Credit Cards Protect And Serve

By |January 9th, 2018|Financial, XPC|Comments Off on The Four Times Credit Cards Protect And Serve

Credit pic

It’s easy to see credit cards as bad news because they are pitfalls. One minute you are paying for a holiday, and the next it costs you thousands of dollars in interest. There’s no doubt that pieces of plastic are not as benign as they look. However, cards aren’t just laminated rectangles that ruin peoples’ lives. They also have positives, and one of them is protection. Sometimes, paying with a credit card is safer and more secure than any other payment method, and that’s not an exaggeration. Indeed, here are the four examples to keep in mind the next time you dismiss a CC out of hand.

Failure To Supply

Most of the time, you buy an item in a store and walk out with it the same day. Thanks to the internet, customers are purchasing goods and services remotely with no need to shop in a store. Although it’s easy, there is an element of danger as the eCommerce site might not follow through on their promises. When you buy clothes or electrical goods from the internet, you want to know they will turn up in due course. With a credit card, you have a safety net because the company has an equal responsibility to provide the service. If they can’t, the card people will offer a full refund and you won’t lose money.

Misinterpretation

The World Wide Web is a dangerous place, and suppliers often misinterpret their goods which impacts consumers. Sometimes they do it by accident, and other times it’s intentional, but it’s a hazard to avoid nonetheless. Zooming in on images and reading the description are two solutions, yet they aren’t foolproof. Sadly, it isn’t possible to bypass scams and lose money […]

Money Habits Of The Rich And Famous

Who are the people who really inspire you? Are they entrepreneurs and top CEOs such as Richard Branson and Elon Musk? Or maybe you are more taken with the glamour of Hollywood and dream to spend a day in the shoes of Jennifer Lawrence or Richard Gere? Perhaps neither of thee kinds of people inspire you – you might be focused on celebrities who have made their niche in a different aspect of culture, such as music or art.

But, no matter where your heroes may be, one thing is for sure – they all have one thing in common, and that is that they are very rich and famous! Getting to where they are isn’t easy. In fact, it takes a lot of hard work, effort, and good money management. Here are some examples of money habits of the rich and famous. You never know, you might get to where they are today if you adopt their habits!

Diversify Your Investments

Rich people know that it is important to invest their cash. This is much more savvy than simply leaving it sitting in a bank account. Your money won’t grow much in the bank, even if the interest rates are quite high. Ideally, you need to place some of your savings in investments in the stock market, property, and some funds. A diversified portfolio of various investments is a much less risky one than a portfolio that only features one investment. After all, if that solo investment loses value, so does all of your savings!

Correct Money Mistakes Quickly

We’re only human, and even the best of us make mistakes with our money. This could be something like a bad investment decision of taking out a loan with […]

Plane Crashes

Although not technically that common, plane crashes are so violent in their nature that they are one of the worst things that could happen to you abroad, and as such, it is worth thinking about them to some degree. If your travel involves a lot of plane journeys, then you might want to try and do whatever you can to make them as safe as possible.
