  Practical Connection   Student Name Course Name Instructor Name Date of Submission   Practical Connection A Reflection on the Application of Course Skills and Techniques in a Working Environment with Databases Work skills are essential, especially in the field or site of application. They come in handy and help one out when they need to handle work-related activities. So is my work area, which has got many activities to do with database management and maintenance. In this reflective essay, I will discuss how skills from this course have been applied in my work environment, especially with database management. I have been able to apply data modeling in the design and scrutiny of a new data model adopted by two organizations during a merger. An instance is T-Mobile in the wake of its merger with Sprint Corporation. This became necessary since, after the merger, the two corporations had to use the same model database, implying the conjunction of the two previously used databases. A new way for data elements’ interaction with the real world entities as necessary for the better customer service of the clients. Therefore, it is an application point for the data modeling skill obtained from this course. I have also been able to apply database debugging and optimization skills in database management. These skills come in very handy when one needs to test any problems with a database system. Databases are made by human beings, and humans are prone to error. As a result, there is a need for error detection in the databases regularly to eliminate as many errors as possible. When I first applied this skill, I found errors but could not manage to correct them. It took the assistance of a colleague to help me recover the problem to have the database back to work. Such errors can arise in the merger corporation such as T-Mobile and Sprinter Corporation since their separate databases were not meant to work as one, but now have to be forced into a unit, or better still, work harmoniously with each other. I, therefore, require to have the debugging skill to enable me to detect any errors caused as a result of the harmonious working or the unification of the two systems. Optimization was essential in the workplace to allow me to work on the system and make it respond more quickly where possible. The last skill I have...

The A, B, C, Ds Of A Healthy Financial Plan

Curious about what you need for a healthy financial plan? Read on and you will find out. First, have * A plan that includes the following four areas: * Budget * Credit * Debt * Savings Budget: Start with a simple written plan (budget) of the monthly net income coming into your household and how much is going out. This plan will be the cornerstone of your financial future and allow you to maintain a reasonable lifestyle while paying down debt and saving. You need to know what is coming in before it is spent while keeping priorities in mind. Housing, food, and basic utilities (gas, electric, water, and sewage) are the top three priorities, followed by auto loans, secured loans and school loans. It is also a good idea to track your expenses for a month by saving either receipts or recording all purchases in a small notebook. It is easy to lose track of the little things, and little things add up to big things. A $1 cup of coffee each morning on your way to work equals $260 a year. These so-called small expenses are little leaks in our budget that can easily be plugged and redirected toward either savings or paying down debt. Credit: Be aware of what your credit report says about you and make every effort to make it as accurate and positive as possible. This is important because whether you are applying for a loan or credit, applying for a job, or even renting an apartment, chances are that your credit report will be viewed. You want to have every opportunity that comes with good credit. Here is the link for the only authorized online source for your free annual credit reports: Also, be careful not to build debt in an attempt to build credit – they are not the same. Do not max-out credit limits. Paying all bills on time and paying down your balances will help you to build a good credit report, which leads to the next area, Debt. Debt: Now that you know how much money comes into your household after taxes and what goes out, take a closer look at your debt.

When lenders are look to see if a client is fundable, they are looking for one of the 4 “C’s”. •The first C is Cash Flow. When you have an existing business, with good cash flow, you can qualify for business funding. If you do have verifiable cash flow, this substantially increases your chances of being approved for funding. There are many funding programs you might qualify for with good cash flow. •The second C is Collateral. Collateral is your business’ assets. Many things can be used as collateral including equipment, purchase orders, even accounts receivables. Having Collateral greatly increases your chances of being approved. •Business Credit is our third C. Lenders will lend you money, with no personal guarantee, based on your business credit profile and score. If you have a good business credit profile you can use that as security to obtain funding. •Personal Credit is the fourth and final C.

But lenders will use your Personal Credit to qualify you. It is possible for you to secure credit lines with as low as a 650 credit score. These types of unsecured credit lines do not look at revenue or financials. Your credit is all that is used to qualify you for funding.
