How to Avoid Lines and Crowds!

leave a comment »

Cities across the world are bracing for one of the busiest holiday tourist seasons in recent memory. If you want to save precious time during your travels, you’ll need to steer clear of those crowds. Here is our advice to avoid wasting hours of your day standing in lines.

Brave the Weather

If the weather forecast doesn’t look great, it pays off to brave it. Bad weather tends to deter or shorten sightseer’s visits. A rainy day on a Saturday will most likely delay most people’s visit by one day. If it starts to rain, don’t run to the exit, stay while others leave.

Get in Early or Leave Last

Attractions are less crowded when 1.) People have not arrived yet or 2.) People have already left for the day. The time after the doors open and before closing are vital times to avoid crowds and lines. Do not feel rushed to leave until they ask you to, you won’t be locked in for the night.

Avoid High Traffic Hours

Every attraction will inform you of their operating hours. Take a look at the scheduled opening hours to get an idea of how crowded it might be. If the attraction is open later, they are expecting it to be busier on that day, and if the attraction is open less hours on a certain day, the attendance will be less.

Buy Tickets Ahead of Time

Look online to check if the attraction you are visiting offers online tickets. Most venues let visitors skip the line if they’ve reserved online. If you don’t purchase ahead of time and there is a long line at the ticket counter, still check on your smartphone for tickets.

By using these tips as a guideline, you can better organize and prepare for your trip. Stay tuned to Travel Tip Tuesdays for more in-depth information about the best way to travel.

Don’t wait for politicians to take the lead

leave a comment »

A Message to Working People: an essay by Robert Reich former labor secretary……        Your typical wage is below what it was in the late 1970s, in terms of what it can buy. Two-thirds of you are living paycheck to paycheck. Almost 30 percent of you don’t have steady employment: You’re working part-time or on contract, with none of the labor protections created over the last 80 years – no unemployment insurance if you lose your job, no worker’s compensation if you’re injured, no time-and-a-half pay for working more than 40 hours a week, no minimum wage, and you have to pay your own Social Security. Over 37 percent of you have dropped out of the workforce altogether because you’ve become too discouraged even to look for work. That’s a near record. As if all this weren’t enough, the schools and infrastructure on which you rely have been neglected, and the ravages of climate change — droughts, fires, and floods – are worsening.

Yet the American economy is twice as large as it was in the late 1970s. As a nation, we are richer than we’ve ever been. We could afford to do so much better.
None of this has happened by accident. Those with great wealth have translated it into political power. And with that power they’ve busted labor unions (to which a third of private-sector workers belonged in the 1950s but now fewer than 7 percent do), halved the taxes they pay (from a top marginal rate of 91 percent in the 1950s to 39 percent today, and from an effective rate of 52 percent then to 18 percent now), cut safety nets, deregulated Wall Street, privatized much of the economy, expanded bankruptcy protection for themselves while narrowing it for you, forced you into mandatory arbitration of employment disputes, expanded their patents and intellectual property, got trade deals that benefited them but squeezed your pay, and concentrated their market power so you pay more for pharmaceuticals, health insurance, airfare, food, internet service, and much else.
This is bad for everyone. Even those at the top would do better with a smaller share of an economy that was growing because the middle class was expanding. And they’d do better in a society that hadn’t become so angry and susceptible to demagogues blaming immigrants and imports for what has happened.
But none of this will change unless we change it. No single person – not even Bernie Sanders, had he become president – can do what needs to be done, alone. You and I and others must continue to organize and mobilize. Do not find refuge in cynicism. Change is slow, and at times seems hopeless. But change must come. Do not wait for politicians to take the lead. We are the leaders.

Rent a Car Like a Pro

leave a comment »

Renting a car is such a common part of the travel experience that you’d think the process would be straightforward and transparent, yet somehow it is anything but. Among all your options, there are some things you don’t need to do and should do when renting a car. Below are a few tips to get you on your way.

Don’t Purchase Prepaid Gas

Prepaying for gas may seem convenient but it means you’ll pay for a full tank of gas, even if you return with the tank half full. Most rentals are on a “get it full, return it full” fuel policy. If you return a car with less than a full tank, the rental company refuels it and adds it to your bill at a per-gallon charge that can be double or triple the going rate.

Inspection Checklist

Always inspect the inside and outside of the rental car before leaving, or dropping off the vehicle. Look for scratches, scuffs, loose parts, working power windows and mirrors, and more. Anything that could potentially be considered damage should be photographed and or recorded. Make the company aware or you might end up paying for it. Never assume that a ding is too small to warrant noting or that the car company already knows about damage. If it’s not listed on the car condition form, speak up.

Avoid “Extra” Rental Fees

Drop-off charges, additional drivers, and additional extras are what you’re most likely to encounter. Drop-off charges are an extra fee if you drop the car off at a different location from where you picked it up. Adding additional drivers to your rental agreement may result in a surcharge. Some major companies allow a renter’s spouse or domestic partner to drive the vehicle at no extra cost. GPS navigation, child seats, roof racks, and satellite radio are some of the most common additional extra costs that could cost you $3 – $25 a day.

Feel the Freedom

Renting a car allows you the freedom to gallivant around and enjoy new places. You have the advantage over public transportation with a car that fits the nature of your trip, family members, and travel companions. Enjoy the luxury of making as many stops as you want and follow the route you consider interesting.

By using these tips as a guideline, you can better organize and prepare for your trip. Stay tuned Tuesdays for more in-depth information about the best way to travel.

“Darwinian Economy,” staring at us !

leave a comment »

With the planet staggering under the greatest load of debt ever seen in human history….

There are some very smart, well informed writers, editors, and financial counselors, of which some I admire and practice what they have to say, that are saying three things about the results of the present economy which are inevitable:
(1) devaluation of the dollar
(2) war (civil or international)
(3) lowered standards of living in the USA
– for at least a decade!
The Economy has hurt many good people. I believe there is a mass of people who are desperate to find smart ways of making money, to Make Change Happen.

With this “Darwinian Economy,” staring at us what is the American public to do?
——————————————————————————–
Stare the “Darwinian Economy” dead square on and declare “the ‘masses’ are coming!”

Consider the following . . .

How do you “leverage” your efforts to maximize your earnings and efforts now?

Get a 2nd or 3rd job? (Too much time and too little pay?)
Hit it big in stocks and bonds. (Without expertise and careful planning the odds are against you!)
Hit the lottery? (Odds are 80 million to 1 – against you!)
Start your own traditional business? (Too time consuming/expensive.)
Buy a franchise? (Expensive, time consuming – 1/3 fail within 2 years.)
Begin working at a low cost, home business quickly!

How To Get Gas For $1 Per Gallon With Yo

leave a comment »

How To Get Gas For $1 Per Gallon With Your ZamZuu Buisness!
Right now more than ever the price of gas is at the forefront of everyone’s mind. Right now this is what everyone is talking about and what is coming up in more conversations than anything else.
BUT…did you know that as a ZamZuu Home Based Business Owner your gas ‘should’ be only costing you $1 per gallon? Now before you start thinking…“Man, that coach is amazing, what oil company did he cut a deal with?” – let me say that no matter what home-based business you’re in you can make these gas prices work for you and EXPLODE your business like never before because all gimmicks aside, this is real, your gas only has to cost you $1 per gallon!
Here’s how it works:
1) The IRS provides a .58.5 cent tax write off for every mile you drive that is legitimately related to business.
2) People who do not own a business CANNOT qualify for this tax write off.
3) Everywhere you go, whether its work, church, the kid’s soccer game, or just going to the store can be a legitimate mileage tax write off if you insert business into the equation.
This is EASY to do! It can be done by leaving ZamZuu business cards on peoples
windshields, handing people ZamZuu business cards (or “tri-fold”),
or of course doing a presentation.
Note: You must record your business mileage in case you ever get audited and this is
where it typically becomes a sticking point with most people as they do not want to take
the time, can’t take the time or forget. If that’s you here’s what you need to do
immediately: Go to http://www.Xpenser.com (this is a FREE service) and sign up. Now you
can simply call a phone number before, during or even after you’ve driven somewhere
(that was business related) and leave a voice message such “Soccer game handed out
3 business cards – 14 miles” and hang up. This FREE service will convert your
message to text and log our it in an online mileage log for you.4) So here’s the $1 per gallon formula – (working with round numbers)
• $4.00 Per Gallon
• 20 Miles Per Gallon
• .58.5 Cents Per Mile IRS Deduction
• 30% Tax Bracket
Those of you with math brains can do the calculation but the basics are – a 20 miles per
gallon vehicle at $4 per gallon cost .20 cents per mile to drive.
.58 cents per mile IRS deduction x 30% tax bracket is .15 cents in real money you
pocket at the end of the year and when you deduct .15 cents from .20 cents your at .05
cents per mile or $1 per gallon! These are real dollars/savings and real cash in your
pocket at the end of the year.
