Long-term financing is a loan, often acquired on interest, with a payback period of one year or more. A home or a property bought on a mortgage, where a loan is repaid over a long period of time, is an example of long-term financing. Long-term loans also are made to start or expand a business. For businesses, the two major sources of long-term financing are bank loans and venture capital. Venture capitalists are third-party investors willing to offer a loan to a business and expect returns on their investments.

When a roof leaks, the most immediate issue generally involves drips or flooding inside of a house. While interior dripping and flooding may require the most urgent attention, any type of roof leak must be repaired.

When bond yields are low and the stock market is looking bearish, it's wise to consider investing in shares that pay a consistent dividend. Dividends are paid to shareholders when a company has a cash surplus that it doesn't need to reinvest for expansion or use to pay down debt. Investing in companies that have a history of paying out dividends is a sensible way of ensuring a steady return on your capital.
Long-term bonds typically earn money based on their interest rate -- also called the coupon rate -- until the bond matures. Any money earned on the principle from the interest rate of the long-term bond is a dividend available to the investor. The dispersal of dividends typically depends on the terms to which the investor agreed at the signing of the bond contract.
Companies often depend on loans to start or maintain their businesses. They can go to investors for the loans, and, like individuals, business owners must prove their creditworthiness. For making the loan, the investor becomes a creditor. Before creditors commit to lending, however, they must evaluate key information about the business, which includes looking at such things as profitability, management, financial statements, earning power and leverage ratios.

Understanding the long-term effects of grout sealers can help you to use these products safely and effectively.
The exact percentage of a budget that should be set aside for long-term savings will vary between individuals based on their personal economic circumstances and what they're saving for.

Whether you work for a company that provides long-term disability insurance or own an individual policy, the insurance company may elect to stop paying long-term disability to an employee for a number of reasons. Employers and their insurers both have certain policies in place to protect themselves, and they may exercise their legal rights to prevent long-term disability insurance abuse or fraud, which drains insurers' coffers and puts tremendous strain on employers. Even if you're not cheating the system, there are other situations in which it's permissible for your company to cease funding this benefit.
Low turnover means a company has a relatively small number of employees leave during a given period relative to the employees hired or employed at the start of that period.

The cost of unemployment insurance is wholly born by the employer. Each time benefits are paid they increase the ratio of total benefits paid to total payroll. At the end of the year, this experience ratio is measured against the industry norm and, if higher than the average, the employer is assessed a higher premium. So, employers are loath to pay unemployment claims particularly when they believe the claimant is not eligible for benefits.
The RCA CC617 is a handheld camcorder that uses VHS-C format tapes for recording video. The camcorder uses 20-, 30- or 40-minute tapes.

One of the most common sources of natural energy, coal is a flammable rock composed of carbon, oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen. Coal originates from calcified peat buried in the earth for millions of years. The U.S. has the largest coal deposit reserves in the world, and approximately 60 percent of of the electricity in the U.S. is generated by coal. Although coal has benefits, coal mining may present long-term environmental and health risks.
You incur a capital loss when you sell a capital asset for less than its basis (the basis is normally the purchase price). A capital loss is considered long-term for tax purposes if you held the asset for more than a year before selling it; otherwise it is considered a short-term capital loss. You may deduct your long-term capital losses from your long-term capital gains. You may deduct your overall capital losses from your ordinary income, subject to a deduction limit.
The depreciation of long-term assets is part of regulatory measures that public officials take to foster infrastructure investments, revive the economy and remove the regulatory cloud that could create uncertainty for business.

Electric cars are going to have a number of monumental effects on human culture: some good, some bad, some obvious and some unforseeable, some wonderful and others unthinkable.
Career goals give you direction in pursuing opportunities and focusing your energy and talents while at work. These goals help you to plan for both long-term and short-term gains.

You may work on multiple steps at the same time to speed up the time it takes to achieve your goal.
In general terms, long-term assets are assets that last longer than a year. This can have two important definitions in terms of finance. First, a long-term asset can be the subject of allocation of investment funds for the long term, when investors want to be sure of obtaining profits not only years but decades down the line. Also, a long-term asset can be a business asset that increases value and is necessary for operations, requiring a specific business account and category for the recording of its expense.
Aligned incentives between shareholders and employees are very important for a company to have. If the incentives between shareholders and management are not aligned, a conflict of interest occurs between shareholders and management. This creates a problem for shareholders because the company will not be managed in the way that benefits them. One way to properly align incentives is by picking the right balance between salary and bonus and long-term compensation.
When you sell property for less than you purchase it for, the result is a capital loss. If you own the property for more than one year as of the date you sell it, you must report it as a long-term capital loss on your Schedule D. You can use any type of capital loss to offset your capital gains; however, if your losses exceed gains, a deduction is available depending on the type of property it is.
Going through a foreclosure can be a difficult time in the life of a family or individual homeowner. The financial stress, complex legal issues and eventual need to find a new place to live all contribute to a process that most homeowners work to avoid, if they can. But a foreclosure also has long-term effects that take several forms and can last many years.
A foreclosure is a legal proceeding where the lender on a mortgage loan takes possession of the home from the borrower. It often occurs after the borrower has missed making the agreed upon mortgage payments. A foreclosure can be a stressful event, and in Florida, there are a number of long-term consequences that can occur after the foreclosure has taken place.
One of the most important rules in accrual basis accounting requires that revenues and expenses be recorded in the same time periods based on their causal relationships. This is done because expenses are incurred in order to produce revenues, and misplacing those expenses results in inaccurate reports on the business's performance for the period. Depreciation is one of the accounting procedures used in compliance with the matching principle -- one that requires the decline in an asset's value through its usage be recorded as depreciation expense.
If you've owned your home for more than five years, you get a significant benefit when you sell the house. The Internal Revenue Service gives you some tax benefits, while other benefits expire depending on certain variables.

Having bad credit puts you at a disadvantage in many areas related to borrowing and spending money.

Regardless of the cause, your bad credit will follow you for nearly a decade, or longer if you don't change your ways.
Borrowing money to finance a purchase includes factors for repayment that can shape your financial future.

Every living thing in nature discards a waste product of some kind, but according to an online site for ecological activists, called Green Student U, only humans leave behind materials that are harmful and destructive to the earth's environment. Statistical claims on this site state that one American produces more than 3,285 pounds of hazardous waste annually.
Bullying by a sibling, also known as sibling abuse, is different from typical sibling rivalry. All siblings will argue from time to time, but extreme fighting between two children where one always seems to be the victim is sibling bullying. A study published in the Child Maltreatment journal indicated 35 percent of children had been bullied at least once in the prior year by a sibling. Being bullied can cause children to avoid their sibling and withdraw from the family in general. There are also long-term effects that could influence a person for the rest of their life.

Two methods can be used to account for long-term contracts -- completed contract or percentage of completion. Percentage of completion is used when collections are certain and the business has an accounting system that can reasonably estimate profits on the contract and measure the progress of the contract until completion. The percentage of completion method uses two accounts to show the activity on an uncompleted long-term contract: "progress billings in excess of cost and estimated earnings" and "costs and estimated earnings in excess of progress billings". If billings for the contract's work exceed the work performed, the amounts billed are…
A steam-blast locomotive refers to a train that moves using a steam-powered engine. Steam-blast locomotives usually use coal, wood or oil as fuel that is combusted to produce propulsive energy. The heat generated evaporates water located in boilers, thus creating steam blast that is responsible for driving the locomotive by turning the turbines. Steam engines have several long-term effects on the environment, economy and society.

Academic red-shirting refers to the practice of keeping a child out of kindergarten an additional year before sending him to school. This practice is generally used with students who would be among the youngest children in the class. According to a 2007 study by the National Center for Educational Statistics, 14 percent of kindergarten-aged children are red-shirted. There are both positive and negative effects associated with the practice of red-shirting.
Most states in the U.S. have compulsory school attendance ages somewhere between 5 and 7 years old. Each individual district within the United States provides kindergarten age cutoff guidelines that dictate the absolute minimum age for beginning school. Although traditionally most children began kindergarten at age 5, increasingly some parents have chosen to delay the start of school in a practice termed academic red shirting.
From the perspective of economic theory, unemployment is reduced to "time off work." Sociologists, however, know that five weeks of unemployment are quite different from a 35-day weekend. Social status and respectability are central elements of the reward system in economic life, and their impact can be felt even within the family.
Long-term employees are important for several reasons -- both tangible and intangible. Employers with long-term employees generally have higher levels of job satisfaction among their employees. Job satisfaction easily translates to greater productivity and, ultimately, business success. Long-term employees are also important to the company's reputation as an employer of choice, or an employer committed to fair employment practices. The importance of long-term employees also includes tangible benefits such as lower costs for training and turnover, and the ability to improve employee benefits as a result of cost-saving measures.
If you have a need to head into the wilds for an extended period of time or perhaps have a summer job where housing is tight, consider a stint of long-term camping. There are several things to consider when readying for a long-term camping situation: laws and rules of the land, animals and food storage, human waste issues, water sources and caring for your clothing and gear. This may prove challenging, but it will give you the freedom of the wild.
Between Western thought and Eastern though, there is a constant debate over whether going barefoot is good for a person's feet. People in the West who are are accustomed to wearing shoes claim that it puts a person's feet at risk for infection and injuries such as cuts and bruises. On the other hand, people in the East are more comfortable walking barefoot and say there are many positive benefits in doing so. Even though a negative stigma is attached to going barefoot, there are plenty of benefits that can make a strong case in favor of this practice.
Tobacco use causes more than 443,000 deaths annually in the United States alone. The majority of those deaths occur from first-hand smoke, with 49,000 the result of second-hand smoke. Tobacco is a plant that naturally contains the stimulant nicotine. The leaves of the tobacco plant are used commercially to make cigarettes, chew, snuff, pipe tobacco and cigars. Chemicals are added to tobacco to enhance the delivery of nicotine to the brain, making tobacco products highly addictive. Commercially sold tobacco contains thousands of chemicals, at least 69 of which are cancer-causing and hundreds more of which are considered toxic. Tobacco harms…
On April 26, 1986, an explosion ripped open the core of a nuclear power reactor--a Soviet-design RBMK, one of the largest in the world for its time--at Chernobyl, in the Ukraine. Deadly radioactive clouds were released that floated on the wind and contaminated large areas. In 2003, the United Nations and the governments of the three most severely affected countries--Russia, Belarus and Ukraine--formed the Chernobyl Forum, whose 2005 report is considered by most governments and mainstream scientific organizations as the definitive assessment of the long-term effects in the 20 years following the accident. These findings are disputed as being incomplete,…
Whether it's bullying from peers in school or the workplace, sibling abuse, child abuse or domestic violence, constant intimidation is unhealthy for all involved. Whether you are the perpetrator, the victim or an innocent bystander, constant intimidation can cause anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and nightmares. Even if the perpetrator fails to act on his threats, the damage is done. Verbal and mental intimidation can be far more damaging than physical violence as the scars are much less visible and can go undetected.
Roundworms, properly known as ascaris lumbricoides, are parasites that affect the digestive system, mainly within the lower intestine.

A total gastrectomy, or removal of the entire stomach, is necessary when you have uncontrollable bleeding, inflammation, cancer, or noncancerous tumors. After the operation, you will need adjust your diet. While adopting a gastrectomy diet might not be easy at first, with some time and patience it will become second nature.
A total gastrectomy is a surgical procedure where all your stomach is removed to treat conditions such as stomach cancer, gastric ulcers, benign polyps, and other conditions. This procedure can have various long term affects.
Total gastrectomies are surgical procedures in which your stomach is removed, usually due to cancer or ulcer disease. The surgeon uses intestinal tissue to recreate a pouch that is attached to your esophagus and small intestine, enabling it to function as your stomach. The procedure may leave you with frequent heartburn, vitamin deficiencies and discomfort after eating (a condition known as dumping syndrome). Making dietary changes is crucial to living a healthy life after a total gastrectomy.
The U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has published guidelines for long-term water storage. FEMA recommends commercially bottled water because it has been specially prepared for long-term storage. FEMA also provides instructions for bottling and storing your own water. This method requires food-grade storage containers such as those sold at camping supplies stores, or plastic soda bottles (which require an additional sanitization step). FEMA recommends maintaining a three-day water supply of at least 1 gallon per person per day.
