For how important your credit score is, misconceptions are rampant.There are a number of things that people commonly think they know when it comes to their credit, but that it turns out aren’t true. These mistakes can result in a lower credit score, which can cost you money since lenders will often charge higher interest rates to those with lower scores.These misconceptions persist despite the fact that credit scores are more easily available to consumers than ever. More and more credit card issuers are giving their customers free credit scores. In addition, for more than a decade, credit reports from each of the big three bureaus — TransUnion, Equifax and Experian — have been available for free once a year, through annualcreditreport.com. “I think people have a little better grasp on the basics than in previous years, but they’re just taking a cursory glance at their reports and some of the nuances of credit scoring are lost on them,” says Jeanine Skrowronski, a credit card analyst at Bankrate.Here are five common credit myths: continue reading » 89SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

– Advertisement – The presidential election undoubtedly matters—but so do the smaller races. Every win is worth celebrating. Colorado elected its first openly bisexual candidate to the state legislature in David Ortiz. Notably, Ortiz is also the state’s first wheelchair user elected to the legislature.Lesbian Episcopal pastor Kim Jackson made history in becoming the first openly LGBTQ member of Georgia’s state senate. Also in the South, Tennessee elected Torrey Harris to the state house, where he will become the first openly LGBTQ member. In Oklahoma, Mauree Turner won a historic race as well. Turner will become the first openly nonbinary person elected to a state legislature in the entire country. Turner is also the first Muslim lawmaker in the Oklahoma legislature. More than 500 openly LGBTQ people were on the ballot. Transgender, nonbinary, and queer people are taking up much-deserved and much-needed space in our elected offices all over this nation. Why does that matter so much? Because in the rush to paint all voters or people in a certain state as irredeemable or uneducated, the reality is, there are progressive activists on the ground all across this nation who are doing the work every single day. And some of those people are being elected. That’s incredible. Politically, of course, and in terms of visibility. Seeing an openly transgender elected official, or an openly queer woman of color, or an openly gay person with disabilities, and so on, can be truly life-changing for young people anywhere, but especially in places where LGBTQ folks face additional barriers of oppression and discrimination.- Advertisement – Want to look at races outside of the Northeast? Excellent. First, we can chat about an enormous win coming out of Kansas, where Stephanie Byers, a member of Chickasaw Nation, became the first openly transgender member of the Kansas state legislature, as well as the first openly transgender person of color elected to a state legislature. Not just to the Kansas state legislature, but any state legislature. Again: History. Some good news came out of Florida, too. Shevrin Jones was just elected to become Florida’s first openly LGBTQ state senator. Not long after his win, Jones was joined by a candidate for the New York state senate, Jabari Brisport. And don’t forget about Michele Rayner-Goolsby, who also carried an important victory home in Florida. Rayner-Goolsby has become the first openly LGBTQ Black woman elected to the House of Representatives in Florida.- Advertisement –

Although the number of infections in Sweden has slowed in recent weeks, a total of 78,048 people have been infected since the pandemic began, a figure far outstripping its Nordic neighbors.Sweden decided to forego a hard lockdown and keep most schools open, and allow businesses to stay open, throughout the outbreak, a strategy that set it apart from most of Europe.The spokeswoman said the new guidelines will not apply to individuals who are too ill to carry out the responsibility and that authorities will have the discretion in certain cases to do the tracing rather than the patient. The existing system worked well when the number of infections was lower but had become less effective as the number grew, she said.Unlike most tracing systems, the Swedish system is not anonymous as individuals are expected to deliver the news of their infection to anyone they’ve been in close contact with.It is not yet clear how this will work in practice or whether authorities will check up on this do-it-yourself arrangement.The health agency is expected to issue full guidelines in the coming days. Sweden’s health agency said on Monday it was changing its COVID-19 contact-tracing guidelines so that tracing is done to a larger extent by the individuals infected.The new guidance breaks from a strategy adopted by most countries where authorities trace and notify people who have had close contact with a carrier of the disease.An agency spokeswoman said it was much better that individuals themselves contact people they may have infected, rather than official tracking units which currently have this responsibility.
