Top 6 Tips to Get the Best Black Friday Deals

in Lifestyle
sales and discounts

If someone asks me about the best day of the year for shopping then my answer would definitely be the Black Friday. You can easily find huge sales, special discounts and bundle packages.

If you search carefully you will be overwhelmed by the deals you see in the stores. Because everyone is searching for discounts and there are a lot of bargain hunters so it is overall a challenging day for buyers.

Here are some of the best tips to find the best deals on this huge discounts day.

1. Check out the Ads And the Apps

Do check your Thanksgiving Day newspaper as it will be stuffed with ads, coupons, and circulars. This will be the main source for Black Friday savings while shopping in your local area. Many stores offer time-specific deals so plan the shopping time accordingly. Keep a close eye on early bird sales and doorbusters.

There are many Android and iOS apps out there to make shopping for the best deals on Black Friday even easier.

2. Do Your Research Well Before Friday

Do your research before the Friday especially if you are looking to buy a big-ticket item. If the quality of the product is bad then it doesn’t matter how much discount is being offered on it. So do your product research as well as the place where you will get the best deal.

3. Compare Prices

Different stores offer a different amount of discount. So when you have decided to buy a particular product then compare the prices. See how much discount is being offered by different stores. Also, see the bundle offers and shipping discounts. For electronic devices see if they are offering the accessories or not. Sometimes you get the devices but you have to pay for the accessories.

4. Look for Early-Bird Shopper Discounts

Normally it is assumed the early-bird shoppers get all the best deals from a store but now many stores offer discounts at different times. Like some stores open on Thanksgiving, there are some doorbusters and there are some stores which open at midnight.

So keep an eye on local newspapers and magazines for best deals and their time of happening.

5. Plan Where You Want to Shop

If you want to grab the best deal then you have to properly plan your shopping trip. Once you have done all the research, prioritize the stores according to the best deals. If you have finalized the deals from different stores then see the map, parking information and the timings of the sale. Carefully plan all this and be proactive. Take the fastest route and be early.

6. Bring the Ads

Many stores offer a guaranteed low price but they might ask you for the proof. So if you see an ad on the internet save it by taking a screenshot. If you see a great deal in a newspaper or magazine then take those ads along with you and present them where needed.

Top 5 Reasons You Should Apply to a Caribbean Medical School

in Careers

The medical profession is one of the most respected professions in the world. In many countries, people wish for their children to become a doctor.

But the competition is very tough when it comes to getting admission in a medical school. In the U.S alone, less than half of all the applications are accepted. Many brilliant students give up their dreams because they can’t make it to the final list of the selected candidates.

Most of the students who give up don’t know that they have other options. If you are one of them then don’t let yourself down. You have a great chance of becoming a great medical professional in the future by getting yourself into a medical school in the Caribbean.

There are many myths about medical schools in the Caribbean, but here will discuss the top reasons you should apply to a Caribbean medical school.

Holistic Evaluation

The medical schools in the U.S require MCAT score. After you pass that test, even then you are not able to get a seat because of the extremely low acceptance rate.

You will be surprised by hearing that most of the medical schools in the Caribbean don’t even require an MCAT test. According to them, academic qualifications are not a true indicator of a person’s abilities.

These medical schools conduct interviews for the selection process.

Acceptance Rates

Like stated earlier, the acceptance rate in the U.S is very low in medical schools. The national average is 4 out of 10. Which means that only 4 students are selected out of 10 candidates. Similarly, Harvard only accepts 1 out of 25.

On the other hand, the acceptance rate is higher in the Caribbean. The candidates who were rejected by the U.S schools can easily get admission. All they need is to find the best Caribbean medical school and consider themselves in.

Rolling Admissions

If you couldn’t make it to the U.S medical schools or you missed the deadline, you have to wait for a complete cycle to able to apply again. This period is a full year and it is a lot of time which can go wasted.

But in the Caribbean, medical schools have two or three intakes a year. It saves your valuable year and you have better chances of being selected.

Accelerated Study

The program duration is way shorter in the Caribbean medical schools as compared to the U.S schools. It could save you a year or two and a lot of money. You can also start practicing sooner as the medical schools in the Caribbean offer accelerated programs.

Clinical Rotations in the United States

Another great reason for choosing top Caribbean medical schools is that they have an extensive network of clinical affiliates in the U.S. There are special slots reserved for the students.

Yes, you have guessed the right, you will have the same clinical experience and exposure as your counterparts. Moreover, these medical schools have clinical sites through the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and India.

So if you are a victim of extensive competition in the home country then you should consider the medical schools in the Caribbean.

Use the appropriate designs for your book covers. Color the coloring page design and there it is, your creative book cover.

6. Fold an Envelope.

You can use coloring pages to create a beautiful envelope for your special mail card or letter. You can also use such envelop to hold keepsakes in scrapbook or journal. Take a beautiful design and create an awesome envelope.

7. Gussy up a Gift.

Why Summertime is a Great Time to Learn Arabic

in Education
Learn Arabic Wikihow

Summer is in full swing here in the Arab world, and what better time to take advantage of the warm weather and longer days than studying Arabic. Why is summertime the best time to learn Arabic? Well, here are just a few reasons from kaleela.com:

Go For a Drive

If you are interested in learning Arabic, the summer can be a great time to “test drive” a language program without the pressure of being an “official” student, as many places offer a “part-time” Arabic course in the summer. It’s a great way to add it as a part of your year-round lifestyle of learning.

Forget Those Lazy Days of Summer

If you’re already studying Arabic but taking a break for the summer, be sure to schedule practice time. You’ve probably heard the expression “If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it”, so if you don’t want to lose any of the languages you’ve studied hard to learn so far, you must make time for it. As little as 15-30 minutes is usually enough. And make it fun! Watch the Arabic series Jinn on Netflix, listen to Arabic music, or try to meet some Arabic friends while you’re lounging around scrolling through Facebook.

See the World!

Summers weren’t meant for sitting indoors all day doing nothing. It’s vacation time, and there are so many things you can do to incorporate Arabic into your summer fun. If you’re planning to travel to one of the Arabic speaking countries, you can incorporate language study into your preparation for the trip and practice the language while you’re there. Additionally, you can get a full immersion experience by choosing a homestay which is often less expensive than hotels and usually includes food. Living with another family is not only a great way to practice your Arabic, but it also gives you and the rest of your family a great education opportunity to learn about Arab culture and see how Arab families live.

If you can’t afford to travel abroad, look for family camps near your home. If you live in Minnesota, for example, the Concordia Language Schools offers week-long family camps. The Middlebury College in Vermont also has a highly respected program for Arabic learners who are traveling solo.

Right In Your Own Backyard

Of course, you don’t have to travel far from home to learn Arabic. Many cities often have cultural festivals throughout the summer, and Arab cultural festivals are included. It’s a great place to immerse yourself in the language and culture (and, of course, some delicious Arab food). Who knows? You might even meet some Arabic language speaking partners while you’re there who can help you in your quest to speak Arabic.

In the Palm of Your Hand

With today’s technological advances, you’re never far from language learning. In fact, you might even have a smartphone in your hand while you’re reading this now that allows you to download language learning apps such as the Kaleela  Arabic language learning app.  Language learning apps are convenient. You can use them on the beach or on the sofa at home. However you spend your summer, the kaleela Arabic language learning app is never too far away and available 24 hours a day.

Although any time of the year is good, summertime is, indeed, a great time to learn Arabic. So, get out there and enjoy them, but practice your Arabic too! Were these tips helpful to you? Can you think of any more ways to learn Arabic in the summer? Drop us a line at Kaleela and don’t forget to download the kaleela Arabic language learning app, the perfect cure for the summertime blues.

The US SEC and Crypto Regulations

in Business/News
The US SEC and Crypto Regulations

This year, on April 3, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission released new cryptocurrency regulatory guidance. In the document, it is thoroughly explained which crypto coins would be considered as securities by the United States.

The news of fresh crypto regulations was announced last November by William Hinman, the Director of the Division of Corporation Finance. Other members of SEC also agreed to this statement claiming that the agency was working on the document.

The SEC has greatly contributed to forming the crypto laws in the country. The agency took great measures to ensure the creation of comprehensive crypto regulations. 

Yet, it can be concluded that not everything about crypto regulations and their application is clear.

Finance Magnates, a multi-asset trading knowledge hub, interviewed a securities lawyer to understand the impact of SEC regulations on investors and token issuers as well as how to navigate the market.

The previously mentioned securities lawyer, Samuel Katz is a lawyer and a general counselor for a blockchain startup. He is specialized in United States Securities law, venture capital and digital tokens. 

Katz declared that crypto coins that will be classified as securities by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission are far more than most crypto investors believe it is.

“The thing that crypto traders should know is that in the United States, most tokens, with the exception of Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), will most likely fall under the securities category.”

“Consequently, these crypto coins become objected to US securities laws that regulate everything from ICOs to securities. Other crypto coins like stablecoins will probably be regulated through other laws.”

When asked what tokens are actually considered as securities, Katz answered that even though the Securities and Exchange Commission explain their definition of securities, it can be summarized that those tokens that are going to gain profit for a small group of people are securities. 

Katz also mentioned that the Commission’s role in creating laws in the United States is quite limited since the actual laws are legislated by the United States Congress. The Securities and Exchange Commission’s job is to enforce the laws. In addition, the SEC has the ability to grant dispensation from the laws.

Since the Commission carries the responsibility of protecting US investors, it is very careful in its job of studying crypto coins. So when the SEC finds out about hack and frauds in the crypto industry it becomes worried about investors.

Another thing that the Securities and Exchange Commission takes interest in transparency. The United States laws do require disclosure and the SEC is trying to enforce the laws in the cryptocurrency market.

In the United States, companies and individual investors should discuss most things with an experienced lawyer, since some questions are still unanswered and unclear. Especially, dealing with asset-backed tokens can be a hassle, since it involves many legal questions. 

On the other hand, the SEC is also bringing many companies to court and the number is expected to grow. Hence, you should be very careful. SEC is going after exchanges, individuals and companies that will violate the United States securities laws.

If you already understand crypto regulations in the United States, you should also know how to monitor and manage your crypto portfolio. Crypto portfolio trackers are tools designed to make crypto investing easier for you. Don’t know how to you them? Check out this highly practical guide on cryptocurrency portfolio management.

List of Foods to avoid with Diabetes

in Food

balanced diet is important for everyone and it is especially important for those who suffer from chronic conditions such as diabetes. If you suffer from diabetes, it is crucial that you have certain medical supplies and medical devices at home to monitor your blood sugar levels. Durable medical devices and disposable medical supplies can be purchased online from accredited retailers such as Save Rite Medical at affordable prices, and they will be delivered to your door, which is extremely convenient.

In order to avoid spikes in your blood sugar levels, you should avoid eating certain foods that can rapidly raise blood sugar and insulin levels. If you suffer from diabetes and you do not avoid eating the below-mentioned foods, you can increase the risk of inflammation, which may also increase the risk of heart disease.

#1 Sweetened Beverages


Sugary drinks should be avoided if you have diabetes because the added sugar can cause your blood sugar levels to rise and may also increase the risk of a fatty liver and diabetes-related conditions. Sweetened drinks can also contain high levels of fructose, which can cause a rise in insulin levels and cause metabolic changes that encourage stomach fat and rapid weight gain, potentially leading to high cholesterol. If you suffer from diabetes, you should rather keep yourself hydrated by opting for sugar-free drinks and water to help control your blood sugar levels.

#2 Margarine


Margarine is high in trans fat, which should be avoided if you suffer from diabetes because it can raise insulin resistance, inflammation, and stomach fat. Additionally, trans fat in foods like margarine can also lower good cholesterol, HDL, and risk impaired arterial function. While these effects are not good for anyone, they are particularly concerning for individuals with diabetes because they can greatly increase the risk of heart disease.

#3 White Bread, Rice, and Pasta


You should avoid these foods because they are processed foods that are considered high carb foods that can dramatically raise blood sugar levels for individuals with both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Because these foods contain a significantly low amount of fiber, they can restrict the absorption of sugar in your bloodstream. By opting to replace white bread with high-fibre bread, you can significantly lower blood sugar levels and reduce cholesterol levels as well.

#4 Flavored Yogurt


Flavoured yogurts usually contain more carbohydrates and a lot of sugar, which should be avoided if you have diabetes. A healthier option for individuals with diabetes is plain yogurt as it does not contain any added sugars and it is made with full cream milk, rather than low-fat milk, which is much healthier in general.

#5 Breakfast Cereals


Starting your day with cereal is a terrible idea if you suffer from diabetes. Not only are most breakfast cereals loaded with sugar but they also contain an extremely high carbohydrate content and they are highly processed, unhealthy foods to consume. Breakfast cereals also contain very little protein, which means that they really cannot fill you up for very long. A better breakfast choice for individuals with diabetes would be low carb, protein-based foods such as eggs.

#6 Honey and Maple Syrup


While white sugar should be avoided, natural sugars and brown sugars are also bad if you have diabetes and therefore, honey and maple syrup should also be avoided. Even though these foods are considered natural sweeteners, they can contain just as many carbohydrates as white sugar does. It is best to rather stay away from all forms of sugar to prevent spikes in your blood sugar levels.

#7 Dried Fruit


While fruit is a fantastic source of various beneficial vitamins and nutrients, dried fruits are not as healthy as a result of the drying process that leads to a higher concentration of nutrients as well as a much higher concentration of sugar. For individuals with diabetes, low-sugar fruits such as berries are a better option and dried fruits should be avoided altogether.

Monitor Diabetes and Control your Blood Sugar Levels

It is vital to avoid certain foods if you have diabetes and opt for a nutritious and balanced diet. Avoiding fast foods and sugary meals can help you to better control your blood sugar levels and manage your symptoms. While routine check-ups with your healthcare practitioner will be essential for staying healthy, monitoring your blood sugar levels from home and making proper use of your diabetes medication such as insulin, can encourage general health and enable you to be aware of your current state of health. It is a great idea to keep a first aid kit at home that contains essential medical supplies such as monitoring devices to help you manage your blood sugar levels. Save Rite Medical is a fantastic choice to conveniently purchase both disposable medical supplies and durable medical devices to help you manage your chronic condition on a daily basis.

Well, whether it is newsletters, widgets, or other forms of digital marketing, you cannot simply relax after achieving the rank you anticipate. You cannot simply stop after scratching the surface; it is important to dig deeper. This means diversifying the keyword research and advancing your content development through;

  • Creating ancillary services: Your content marketing is only part of a bigger machine. It is important to identify other products that will help the initial strategy work well. Think of productivity tools, email marketing apps, and appropriate themes, plugins, call tracking, printing, CDN, and reputation management.
  • Interview top industry leaders: When you interview the leaders in your industry, you generate very insightful content. The good thing is that the leaders generate the content and you do not need to work hard for it. Immediately, you become an authority and build a lot of trust from followers.
  • Review competing products: While the commonest strategy by most companies is reviewing their products and depicting those of competitors as inferior; the strategy only works for some time. Rather, you should review even the competitors’ products and point the difference with what your brand is offering. Cite the pros and cons and be genuine to become an authority in the market.
  • Start your own online courses: People tends to listen to what their teachers say. In this case, it will be good to start from your own course to get more creditability. For example, if you run an SEO agencyImpossible.sg believes that you should organize SEO courses to teach your followers.
