How credit scoring works

first_img This post is currently collecting data… What your credit scores mean Knowing the basics about credit scores and reporting will help you develop smart credit habits and make effective decisions for your financial future. Over time, these good credit habits and decisions should have a positive impact on your credit score. Healthy credit will help you participate more fully in the modern economy and enable you to take advantage of the credit opportunities you desire. 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr This is placeholder text continue reading » Credit scoresCredit scores are calculated using information in your credit report. That information is added to your report when companies, such as lenders, banks and utility companies, report your account information to the credit reporting agencies. Scoring models then use categories of information in your reports to calculate a three digit score. Popular scoring models provide credit scores ranging from 300 to 850. Your credit score provides a snapshot of your credit health to lenders, which can help them make a lending decision. Companies may have different criteria for extending credit, so a score that may get you approved with one lender may not be the same for another. In general, the higher your score, the more likely you’ll be approved and get better terms on credit products, which can save you money over time. In some instances, like mortgages, your credit score may not be the only thing lenders look at before offering you credit.last_img read more

Zagreb received 16 Chinese tourist guides for the first time

first_imgIn accordance with the change in the law, Libertas International University has provided foreign citizens residing in the Republic of Croatia with the opportunity to study to become a tourist guide in the city of Zagreb.The Chinese were the first to use this opportunity. This is the first group of systematically organized candidates with Chinese origin and residence in the Republic of Croatia who, motivated by legislation, decided to access education in order to represent and promote Croatian destinations, and subsequently to previous agreements of Sino-Croatian cooperation.Thus, at the end of last week, a solemn ceremony of awarding certificates for the first Chinese tourist guides for the City of Zagreb was held, and in this way Zagreb received 16 Chinese tourist guides for the first time, in the Croatian language. Also, the establishment of the Association of Chinese Tourism in the Balkans and the Association of Tourist Guides in Chinese was presented, with the aim of connecting guides in order to make the stay of tourists as pleasant as possible. Cultural differences will be most easily bridged through already integrated Chinese such as Chinese guides, Libertas points out, adding “Libertas University is proudly the first educational institution to hold a seminar for a tourist guide of the city of Zagreb for foreign citizens, and the solemn ceremony attended by His Excellency Mr. ZHAOMING HU is just proof that Libertas is a world university.“They conclude from Libertas.Related news:CSEBA BRINGS THE STRONGEST REPRESENTATIVES OF THE CHINESE TOURISM SECTOR TO THE REGIONCROATIA AWARDED IN CHINA AS THE MOST DESIRABLE NEW TOURIST DESTINATIONCROATIAN-CHINESE ECONOMIC FORUM: CHINA WILL PROVIDE 100 MILLION TOURISTS IN A FEW YEARS</p>

EPL: Ancelotti gets winning start as Everton beat Burnley

first_imgRelatedPosts Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win EPL: Foxes attack Burnley EPL: Calvert-Lewin treble fires Everton past West Brom Carlo Ancelotti enjoyed a winning start as Everton manager with an 80th-minute Dominic Calvert-Lewin header earning a 1-0 Premier League win over Burnley at Goodison Park on Thursday. Burnley had been typically resilient in defence, while posing few questions of Everton, and it took a high-quality finish to separate the sides. Djibril Sidibe whipped in a cross from the right which Calvert-Lewin met with a superb angled diving header which flew in off the inside of the far post. Sidibe had gone closest to breaking the deadlock with a low drive in the 32nd minute which Burnley keeper Nick Pope did well to keep out with his leg. Burnley’s best opening came three minutes later when an Ashley Westwood free kick found Chris Wood at the back post but the New Zealander headed over the bar from a promising position. Italian Ancelotti, a Champions League winner with AC Milan and Real Madrid was appointed by Everton on Saturday to replace the sacked Marco Silva.Tags: BurnleyCarlo AncelottiDjibril SidibeDominic Calvert-LewinGoodison Parklast_img read more

Jol accepts Riether punishment

first_img “(Daniel) Sturridge has also had a big impact since he went to Liverpool. They are very good going forward with these top players up front. “Maybe you could stretch your imagination a bit and say they could be title contenders. They are strong and they will be going for a top four spot this year.” Jol, however, insists he feels no pressure, despite the disenchantment among the home fans which saw Fulham striker Bryan Ruiz booed off the pitch when he was substituted on Saturday. Jol, who refused to comment on the club being linked with a move for PSV Eindhoven’s Swedish striker Ola Toivonen, said: “I don’t think you are under pressure against Liverpool or Manchester United. You are under pressure in your home games against teams who should lose points against us, for example Crystal Palace. “We really felt some pressure (against them), not because of me but because of the result. We needed points and we managed to win that game. We played well. “If they (the fans) are disappointed I can understand that. The only disappointing thing was with Ruiz. As long as we don’t have the results they can (boo) me, but hopefully they will support the team. We are not in the best of situations, but we are not in the worst. “We had a very difficult schedule. We have played most of the top teams in difficult away games. The only really inconsistent game was 1-1 against West Brom. We need a few surprise results and maybe we can start against Liverpool.” Fulham manager Martin Jol insisted the club have “moved on” after Sascha Riether was banned for three matches for stamping on Manchester United’s Adnan Januzaj towards the end of Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Craven Cottage. Jol said: “If he did do it deliberately it is fair enough to get three games. The referee didn’t see it. I didn’t see it, but they decided to give him that punishment and people around me said it was probably something deliberate. “He said it was not deliberate but he apologised to the club, to the fans and to us. It is not what you need, but we move on.” Jol revealed he will be speaking to Riether again about the incident and added: “They are all responsible for their own actions. Sascha Riether is responsible and we are responsible. You don’t want that sort of thing. “He has been punished for it and I don’t think he will do it again in the future. “If he tells me he didn’t do it deliberately and other people say he did there is always a grey area with that. But I think you should try not to stamp on someone’s feet, probably fall over and do something.” Jol, who revealed striker Hugo Rodallega will be out for six weeks with a leg muscle problem, goes into the Liverpool match under pressure and with Saturday’s Craven Cottage boos still ringing in his ears. Fulham lie 16th in the Premier League, two points above the relegation zone, and against Liverpool Jol comes up against his former captain at Ajax, Luis Suarez. Jol said: “Suarez is one of the best in the world and he will prove that. He will score a lot of goals. He would have been top scorer last year if he had not been suspended (for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic). Fulham initially asked the Football Association for clarification on its retrospective action rule after Riether was charged with violent conduct. But Jol has now accepted his right-back’s punishment, which will start with him missing Saturday’s key game against Barclays Premier League game against Liverpool.

United to assess Jones injury

first_img Press Association Manchester United defender Phil Jones is expected to meet with the club’s medical staff on Tuesday as the Red Devils wait to discover the extent of the injury he sustained on England duty. The Old Trafford outfit, without a win to their name yet this season after four matches in all competitions under new boss Louis van Gaal, are next in action when they host QPR in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday. Several United players could make debuts in the match, including Jones’ fellow England defender Luke Shaw, who it is understood is now fit and ready for selection. Left-back Shaw has been unable to make a competitive appearance for his new side following a summer switch from Southampton having suffered a hamstring injury of his own in August. There could also be United bows on Sunday for another defender in Marcos Rojo, with the necessary paperwork for him to do so now signed off, plus the versatile Daley Blind and striker Radamel Falcao, the two transfer deadline day recruits. Meanwhile, Ander Herrera, who arrived from Athletic Bilbao over the summer, is hopeful of making his comeback in the game. The midfielder has been restricted to just one competitive United run-out so far because of an ankle complaint, but wrote on Twitter on Monday: “Training hard and looking forward to this next game at Old Trafford!” There could also be a home Red Devils debut for Angel di Maria, the winger the club broke the British transfer record to sign last month. United striker Robin van Persie is keen to get back working among the new signings once he finishes his international duties this week with Holland. Speaking in the Austrian Alps, where the Dutch team have been training, 31-year-old Van Persie – who has also expressed his desire to play at the 2018 World Cup and keep his career going through to the age of 40 – said: “I can’t wait to go and train and play with the world class players we have signed – wow! “That feeling, that we are going to perform well, has only got stronger after the buying of players over the last weeks. I find it very exciting, the arrival of all those new players. “For me personally, it’s brilliant to go and play with some of the best players in the world. It’s great that I can go and train and play with them every day.” United wide man Ashley Young is also convinced the future is bright for the club. “I definitely think things are going to turn for us and I would say to the fans there is nothing to worry about, we’re going to come good,” Young told Inside United magazine. “It’s just like the manager has said, just believe in the philosophy and how we’re playing and keep believing that we’re going to turn this round because we do.” Sir Bobby Charlton has echoed the sentiment that United supporters should not be too fearful about what lies ahead. “We’ve got nothing to worry about,” said the club’s all-time leading goalscorer, quoted by the Manchester Evening News. “He’s got the world at his feet, the new manager. “What we need to do now is put the players in the right places and the ball in the right place. But that’s harder than it sounds.” There was further United fitness news on Tuesday, with defender Rafael writing on his Instagram account: “Back in training ready to help. Let’s go.” Rafael has not featured yet this term due to a groin injury sustained in pre-season. Jones limped off in the 77th minute of Monday’s 2-0 Euro 2016 qualifying victory in Switzerland due to what appeared to be a hamstring problem. No confirmation has been forthcoming from the Football Association on the matter and United will be eager to assess the 22-year-old when he arrives back in Manchester. last_img read more
