12 Simple Ways to Save Money on Health Care

The health care system is complex, but savvy consumers can receive quality care for less.

Close-up of a medical bill.

In the last few years, consumers have found themselves paying a higher percentage of their medical costs. The Affordable Care Act has given more Americans access to health insurance, but many of those plans come with high deductibles – which are also becoming more common in employer-provided plans.
The average deductible for workers with employer-provided health insurance grew from $826 in 2009 to $1,217 in 2014, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, with the percentage of insured workers who face a deductible of $1,000 or more growing from 6 percent in 2006 to 32 percent in 2014. Plans offered in the ACA exchange have an average deductible of $5,081 for an individual and $10,386 for a family for the bronze plans, the most popular of the four “metal” tiers, according to an analysis by

How to plan a round-the-world trip

Itʼs the ultimate trip: circumnavigating the planet, and stopping off wherever takes your fancy. Great for travellers who want to see it all, or who are just plain indecisive. But booking a round-the-world (RTW) trip can be a complex business. Hereʼs our guide to getting started.

How to do it

The most economical way to circumnavigate is to buy a round-the-world air ticket that uses one airline alliance. Theoretically, any routing is possible, but knowing how the RTW booking system works will make your trip cheaper. For example, the Star Alliance, a coalition of 27 airlines, offers a RTW ticket with a maximum of 15 stops. Its member airlines fly to 1185 airports in 185 countries.
There are rules: you must follow one global direction (east or west – no backtracking); you must start and finish in the same country; and you must book all your flights before departure, though you can change them later (which may incur extra charges).

Indonesia: An Overview of People, Culture, and Traditions

Indonesia has an estimated 17,508 islands, but only 6,000 islands are inhabited.  It comprises five main islands, which are Sumatra, Kalimantan (“Borneo”), Sulawesi (“Celebes”), Jawa (“Java”), and Papua (the western half of Papua New Guinea). With a population of 246,864,191 people, Indonesia is considered as the fourth most populous nation, and 58% of its people live in Java Island. The large population also brings about the diversity of cultures, ethnicities, religions, and languages that are found in everyday life.
One nation, one country, and one language
As one of the world’s most diverse countries, diversity is a central feature of Indonesian culture. It has 300 ethnic groups; 750 languages and dialects, with several local languages having their own scripts; and numerous religions, as a result of the country’s unique history and geography. The importance of diversity is embedded in the nation’s motto: Bhinneka Tunggal Ika (“Unity in diversity”). Even though Indonesians refer to themselves by their ethnic group and speak many local languages, they are united as a nation by Bahasa Indonesia, the official language of the country.


Indonesia is culturally rich. Indonesian art and culture are intertwined with religion and age-old traditions from the time of early migrants with Western thoughts brought by Portuguese traders and Dutch colonists. The basic principles which guide life include the concepts of mutual assistance or “gotong royong” and consultations or “musyawarah” to arrive at a consensus or “mufakat” Derived from rural life, this system is still very much in use in community life throughout the country.
Though the legal system is based on the old Dutch penal code, social life as well as the rites of passage are founded on customary or “adat” law which differs from area to area. “Adat” law has a binding impact on Indonesian life and it may be concluded that this law has been instrumental in maintaining equal rights for women in the community. Religious influences on the community are variously evident from island to island.
Intertwined with religion and age-old traditions from the time of early migrants the art and culture of Indonesia is rich in itself with Western thoughts brought by Portuguese traders and Dutch colonists. The art and culture of Indonesia has been shaped around its hundreds of ethnic groups, each with cultural differences that have shifted over the centuries. Modern-day Indonesian culture is a fusion of cultural aspects from Arabic, Chinese, Malay and European sources. Indonesian art and culture has also been influenced from the ancient trading routes between the Far East and the Middle East leading to many cultural practices being strongly influenced by a multitude of religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism and Islam.

How Korean culture stormed the world

Gangnam Style star Psy is grabbing the headlines worldwide - but South Korea's blossoming cultural sector offers deeper 'soft power' benefits. With his slicked back hair, powder blue suit and goofy horse dance, South Korean rapper Psy, who is in Hong Kong today, turned Gangnam Style into one of the musical hits of the year.
With over 800 million views on YouTube Gangnam Style has become a cultural sensation, but K-Pop has been around longer than Psy and its influence has lent a hand in elevating South Korea in the consciousness of Asia and the world, with effects that go well beyond the entertainment industry. Culture is helping to bolster the country's "soft power" and build its influence. It's a success story that may offer important clues for China as it seeks to use culture to bolster its own soft power and a reminder of the halcyon days when Hong Kong's Canto-pop stars seemed destined for global fame.
Psy has topped the charts in Britain and been welcomed in New York by his fellow countryman, UN chief Ban Ki-moon, who conceded with a grin that he was no longer the world's most famous Korean. Korean films are becoming more and more popular among the mainstream - Park Chan-wook's hit Oldboy is getting a US remake next year - while television shows are winning fans in unlikely corners of the world.

8 Suprising Ways Music Affects and Benefits Our Brains

I’m a big fan of music, and use it a lot when working, but I had no idea about how it really affects our brains and bodies. Since music is such a big part of our lives, I thought it would be interesting and useful to have a look at some of the ways we react to it without even realizing.
“Without music, life would be a mistake” – Friedrich Nietzsche
Of course, music affects many different areas of the brain, as you can see in the image below, so we’re only scratching the surface with this post, but let’s jump in.

Are Cell Phones Dangerous for Kids?

Kids are using cell phones more and more at younger and younger ages. This brings plenty of new opportunities and conveniences, but also brings new dangers. Not only are children using social media more and venturing deeper into the Internet, but the materials and radiation of cell phones can be physically harmful.

Technology and Kids: 7 Ways to Unplug
While interaction with online educational games and apps can be a learning experience for our kids, the percentage of young children who are trading in picture books for LED screens has crept up to astonishing levels. A recent report by Common Sense Media found that over one-third (38 percent) of 0- to 8-year-olds studied had used a smart phone, mp3 player, video iPod, iPad or a similar tablet—and 11 percent of children used these technological trinkets on a daily basis.

Global Warming

Throughout its long history, Earth has warmed and cooled time and again. Climate has changed when the planet received more or less sunlight due to subtle shifts in its orbit, as the atmosphere or surface changed, or when the Sun’s energy varied. But in the past century, another force has started to influence Earth’s climate: humanity
How does this warming compare to previous changes in Earth’s climate? How can we be certain that human-released greenhouse gases are causing the warming? How much more will the Earth warm? How will Earth respond? Answering these questions is perhaps the most significant scientific challenge of our time.

Perbedaan Present Perfect Tense dengan Simple Past Tense

Present Perfect tense menyampaikan bahwa sesuatu SUDAH terjadi, lebih menekankan pada suatu “kegiatan” yang sudah terjadi.
Contoh: I’ve eaten. I’ve met her.
Past Tense menyampaikan bahwa sesuatu terjadi di WAKTU LAMPAU, lebih menekankan pada waktu kejadian.
contoh: I met her last week.

1.       simple past tense dipakai saat keterangan waktunya sudah selesai, sedangkan present perfect dipakai saat keterangan waktunya belum selesai/masih berlanjut.
I bought 3 books last week. (simple past-last week sudah berlalu)
I have bought 3 books this week. (present perfect-this week belum berlalu, masih berlangsung)

Adjective Clause

An adjective clause—also called an adjectival or relative clause—will meet three requirements:
  • First, it will contain a subject and verb.
  • Next, it will begin with a relative pronoun [who, whom, whose, that, or which] or a relative adverb [when, where, or why].
  • Finally, it will function as an adjective, answering the questions What kind? How many? or Which one?
The adjective clause will follow one of these two patterns:
Relative Pronoun or Adverb + Subject + Verb
Relative Pronoun as Subject + Verb
Here are some examples:
Whose big, brown eyes pleaded for another cookie
Whose = relative pronoun; eyes = subject; pleaded = verb.
Why Fred cannot stand sitting across from his sister Melanie
Why = relative adverb; Fred = subject; can stand = verb [not, an adverb, is not officially part of the verb].

Simple Present Tenses

The simple present tense in English is used to describe an action that is regular, true or normal.
We use the present tense:
1. For repeated or regular actions in the present time period.
  • I take the train to the office.
  • The train to Berlin leaves every hour.
  • John sleeps eight hours every night during the week.
2. For facts.
  • The President of The USA lives in The White House.
  • A dog has four legs.
  • We come from Switzerland.
3. For habits.
  • I get up early every day.
  • Carol brushes her teeth twice a day.
  • They travel to their country house every weekend.
4. For things that are always / generally true.
  • It rains a lot in winter.
  • The Queen of England lives in Buckingham Palace.
  • They speak English at work.
