Financial milestones everyone needs to achieve

first_img 116SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Tyler Atwell Web: www.cuinsight.com Details Everyone has a different life plan and different expenses. No matter what that looks like, make sure you’re checking off these financial milestones.Start saving for retirementI’ve written in length on how important it is to start early when saving for retirement, but regardless of when you start saving it is indeed a milestone. You benefit more from saving early, and the longer you wait, the worse it gets.Pay off student loansEducation is getting more and more expensive and the student debt crisis is consistently in the news as a serious problem. Some students have resigned to never paying their debt off and just perpetually rolling them over. Paying them off has now become a great accomplishment.Establish a good credit historyWhile you may have missed some payments when you were younger and made some mistakes with your finances, it is important to redeem them. Developing a solid credit history will help with big purchases and shows how responsible you can be with paying your bills.Invest in more than a retirement planWhether it’s something simple like mutual funds or something more advanced like stocks, it is important to have your money diversified in something beyond a basic savings account.Maximize employer benefitsIf you work somewhere that provides you with perks, you should be using them to the fullest. Employer match accounts are effectively the closest thing to free money that exists, so the sooner you maximize your benefits, the better.Have a positive net worthThis is the moment that everything you earn with become pure profit. There is nothing more exciting than when assets – liabilities = a positive number.Buy your first homeBuying a home is easily one of the largest financial obligations most people will experience, and it may determine your spending habits for the future.Deciding when to retireThere are quite a few things to consider when it comes to retirement, and they differ for everyone. Deciding when to collect social security, how much you need in savings, and how you plan to spend are just a few of the things you may need to think about.last_img read more

Canada OKs remdesivir for use against coronavirus

first_imgCanada on Tuesday gave the green light for people with severe symptoms of COVID-19 to be treated with the anti-viral drug remdesivir.”Remdesivir is the first drug that Health Canada has authorized for the treatment of COVID-19,” said the health ministry.At least two major US studies have shown that remdesivir can reduce the duration of hospital stays for COVID-19 patients.  Washington authorized the emergency use of the medicine — which was originally intended as a treatment for Ebola — on May 1, followed by several Asian nations including Japan and South Korea.Canada said Tuesday it can be used on COVID-19 patients who have pneumonia and need extra oxygen to help them breathe.The doses used in Canada will be made by a unit of Gilead Sciences, the US pharmaceutical company that developed the drug.In early July, the European Commission also authorized use of remdesivir to treat the coronavirus.As of Tuesday, Canada was reporting 114,800 cases of the virus and more than 8,900 fatalities.

Ruthless Madrid put semis in sight

first_imgReal Madrid have one foot planted firmly in the Champions League semi-finals after a commanding 3-0 victory over Galatasaray in the first-leg of their quarter-final tie on Wednesday.A superb opener from Cristiano Ronaldo and a close-range second from Karim Benzema put los Blancos in the driving seat with a 2-0 lead at the Bernabeu before the half-hour mark.And though Galatasaray showed some promise, Madrid were always the superior side, and Gonzalo Higuain came off the bench to nod home a third in the 73rd minute to make the second-leg at the Ali Sami Yen little more than a formality, barring a monumental collapse from Jose Mourinho’s men.Benzema was preferred to Higuain up front, while Michael Essien replaced Alvaro Arbeloa at right-back, and captain Iker Casillas was excluded from the squad altogether.With only nine minutes on the clock, Madrid were ahead. Mesut Ozil was the architect, slipping in Ronaldo with a superb through ball, which was matched by an exquisite lob over Fernando Muslera.Didier Drogba had a chance to respond after shaking off Raphael Varane with a powerful turn and squaring up to goal, but the Ivorian rather snatched at his shot and sent it high and wide.There was real ebb and flow developing to the game, and the sprightly Ozil was denied from the edge of the box by Muslera, before Drogba’s swerving effort from distance was met with a safety-first punch from Diego Lopez. But only one side were able to make their chances count, and Madrid gave another lesson in clinical finishing just before the half-hour mark. Essien’s cross was plucked from the air exquisitely at the far post by Benzema, who was then left with a simple tap-in.Galatasaray, to their credit, or perhaps because they had no other option, kept pushing forward. Burak Yilmaz missed from close range after Drogba had bettered Sergio Ramos, and Emmanuel Eboue tested Lopez with a low drive following a one-two with the Ivorian striker.But the hosts’ forays forward meant that the possibility of a third Madrid goal always existed, and after a cheap foul by Dany Nounkeu at the corner of the box, Ronaldo dipped the resulting free-kick onto the roof of the net shortly before the break.But in sharp contrast to the enterprise that marked the first half, the second period progressed with a far more measured tempo from Madrid, who, with a two goal advantage in hand, seemed content to make the visitors chase the game by holding onto the ball.And with 17 minutes remaining, substitute Higuain all but put the tie to bed by guiding a header into the back of the net from Xabi Alonso’s free-kick into the box. Ronaldo’s acrobatic attempt at a fourth was blocked by Eboue, who had initially allowed the Portuguese space for the shot, but Mourinho’s men had done their job, and played out the remaining minutes in control to set up what looks like a straightforward second leg.last_img read more
