Best Personal Loans of 2020

frank lamjus

A personal loan is a loan taken out for a short period of time, usually between two and five years. The length of time is fixed and does not fluctuate, unlike a credit card or line of credit. Most personal loan amounts are between $1,000 and $100,000, depending on your need and creditworthiness. Each bank has its own set of limitations on how much and how long you can borrow for a personal loan.

Personal loans are typically unsecured, which means there is no collateral, such as a car or house backing the loan. Different types of lenders offer personal loans, including traditional brick-and-mortar banks and online-only lenders. They serve borrowers with varying credit scores, income and other qualifying requirements.

This guide explains how you can evaluate online lenders for personal loans. It offers guidance for finding the right lender for your credit history and income, interest rates offered, how

Personal importation scheme | Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA)

frank lamjus

Individuals can legally import most therapeutic goods for personal use under the Personal Importation Scheme.

Personal importation occurs when:

  • an individual arranges from within Australia for a therapeutic good to be sent to them from an overseas supplier or family/friend; and
  • the goods are to be used by that individual or a member of his/her immediate family and are not sold or supplied to any other person.

It is important to note that such therapeutic goods may not be approved for supply in Australia; this means there are no guarantees about their safety or quality.

Because safety and quality cannot be guaranteed do not order medicines, including dietary supplements and herbal preparations, over the Internet unless:

  • You know exactly what is in the preparation; and
  • You have checked the legal requirements for importation and use in Australia.

Personal Importation Scheme

Under the Personal Importation Scheme you may import a 3

Personal Computer History: 1975-1984 | Low End Mac

frank lamjus

Personal computer history doesn’t begin with IBM or Microsoft, although Microsoft was an early participant in the fledgling PC industry.

Altair 8800The first personal computers, introduced in 1975, came as kits: The MITS Altair 8800, followed by the IMSAI 8080, an Altair clone. (Yes, cloning has been around that long!) Both used the Intel 8080 CPU. That was also the year Zilog created the Z-80 processor and MOS Technology produced the 6502. Bill Gates and Paul Allen wrote a BASIC compiler for the Altair and formed Micro-soft.

In 1976, Apple’s two Steves (Jobs and Wozniak) designed the Apple I, Apple’s only “kit” computer (you had to add a keyboard, power supply, and enclosure to the assembled motherboard), around the 6502 processor. That was also the year that Electric Pencil, the first word processing program, and Adventure, the first text adventure for microcomputers, were released. Shugart introduced the 5.25″ floppy

50 Inspirational & Creative Personal Portfolio Websites

frank lamjus

A few months ago we featured Web Design Agency homepages. However, many designers prefer to work alone, and their portfolios are also worth checking out. Thus, here are 50 individual creative portfolios, which will knock your socks off!

Keeping in mind that most agency sites are built on a “Logo – Tagline – Best Work – Contact Info” basis, we were curious to see if this formula would work as well for freelance designers as it does for web design agencies.

Yes, it works sometimes, and you can see it from the examples featured in this article, but it seems, as expected, the main focus of most portfolio sites is to catch visitor’s attention, introduce the designer and then invite readers to get deeper into the portfolio in order to see the best works and know more about the designer, his/her skills, awards and experience.

Basic Monthly Budget Worksheets Everyone Should Have

frank lamjus

A personal or household budget is an itemized list of expected income and expenses that helps you to plan for how your money will be spent or saved, as well as track your actual spending habits. The word budget may have taken on a slightly negative connotation over the years, invoking an image of pinching pennies or limited spending.

However, a budget is really just a tool to gain a better and more accurate insight into your spending habits. By listing all of your sources of income against all of your monthly expenditures (from required expenses like mortgage or rent payments to discretionary spending like eating out or going to the movies), you get a true picture of your personal cash flow, which will allow you to make better and more informed financial decisions. An accurate budget will also help you to better understand what you can and cannot afford.
