Eliseo Delgado Jr. Shares Insider Real Estate Tips When Applying for a Mortgage

CORONA, CALIFORNIA, USA , January 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Eliseo Delgado Jr. is one of the West Coast’s premier real estate professionals and a proven leader with The Mortgage Guys, which is based out of California. Here, he shares some of his career experience with readers and lends a few financial preparation tips for potential homeowners who are applying for mortgages.

Many people underestimate the mortgage application and home buying processes, often under preparing along the way and meeting many unanticipated obstacles throughout. To avoid the common headaches of applying for a mortgage, real estate professional Eliseo Delgado Jr. shares a few insider tips on what people should save up for below.

“It’s important that people applying for a mortgage understand the home buying process all the way through instead of learning as you go,” says Eliseo Delgado Jr. “Ideally, the home search is one of the last steps in the process, but many people treat it like the first step. In the end, the biggest concern is saving up enough money so homebuyers don’t run into any dead ends with mortgage applications.”

Down payments are typically the highest expense people must face when purchasing a home, and usually the more money they have saved up in the beginning will help them save money on insurance later. It’s advised that people save up enough money to equal about 20% of their anticipated total home cost, which will get them off the hook of most mortgage insurances. The larger the amount of money put down on a house in the beginning also ultimately cuts down the cost of monthly payments. While saving up 20% of the home cost is a best-case-scenario, homebuyers can also secure a mortgage with a much lower down payment thanks to help from government-backed FHA loans, VA loans, and the like.

Another element that homebuyers will have to prepare for is the closing cost of a home. Closing costs are the expenses that potential homeowners must pay to their lender in exchange for loan services during the transaction process. While this amount will likely end up being thousands of dollars, homebuyers will usually only have to fork out something like 3-6% of the total home cost in these payments.

Eliseo Delgado Jr. also says that it’s likely lenders will also require homebuyers to show proof that they have enough finances saved up to pay for their first few monthly payments on time. These lenders will also want to know that homebuyers can afford their mortgage payments and may take into account elements like debt compared to income before they approve a mortgage.

“In addition, homebuyers should be financially prepared to handle any potential fixes in the beginning, such as replacing old appliances or repairing a furnace,” says Eliseo Delgado Jr. “There’s a lot of saving up required when applying to mortgage lenders, and it’s wise that potential homebuyers build up good credit and save as much money as they can early on to make the home-buying process smooth and painless.”

An avid sportsman, Hirsch has also helped boost recognition of racquetball in his community over the years and has greatly contributed to the sport in South Florida.

Scott Hirsch has worked to improve the reputation of racquetball in South Florida and beyond and increase its popularity across the country. He’s made landmark contributions to the sport and has earned a high reputation in the world of racquetball, even receiving a nomination into the World Outdoor Racquetball Hall of Fame.

Participating players included Cliff Swain, Sudsy Monchik, Jason Mannino, Chris Crowther, and Ruben Gonzalez.

He’s also served as a coach and mentor to many top amateur and professional players since 1990, proving his longtime dedication to the sport.

Indoor Racquetball

Scott Hirsch served as the Founder and National Director of “The Legend’s Tour” (Original Classic Pro Racquetball Tour) from 2001-2006. During this time, he ran over fifty events and raised over $300,000 for national charities. He also founded the First National Paddleball Association (NPA) Outdoor 1 Wall Championships.

Jeff Bogardo highlights range of Pennsylvania's most popular marathons

Keen runner and Pennsylvania-based expert Jeff Bogardo offers a closer look at some of the state's most popular marathons and racing events.

BETHLEHEM, PA, USA, January 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pennsylvania is home to more than 20 regular marathon events. Held annually, this year, the state will host more than 25 different marathons ranging from the Philadelphia Trail Marathon, Pittsburgh Marathon, and York Marathon to Run For The Red, the Pine Creek Challenge, and, in Wellsboro, Conquer the Canyon. A keen runner and longtime resident of the Keystone State, Jeff Bogardo provides a closer look at some of Pennsylvania's biggest and most popular marathons.

"Pennsylvania is home to a huge array of marathons and half-marathons, from Run For The Red in Tannersville to the Pine Creek Challenge in Wellsboro, which is also home to the famous Conquer the Canyon event," explains Bogardo, a highly experienced runner who has successfully competed in more than 100 races.

"Other notable marathons hosted in the state include the Philadelphia Trail Marathon, Pittsburgh Marathon, and York Marathon," he continues, "plus the Chasing the Unicorn Marathon and the Two Rivers Marathon Race Festival."

The Chasing the Unicorn Marathon, or Chasing the Unicorn Marathon & Alternative Half-Marathon, is based in Washington Crossing, according to JefF Bogardo, while the Two Rivers Marathon Race Festival—which includes a marathon, half-marathon, and 10K and 5K races—is held in Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania.

Later in the year, and following the Chasing the Unicorn Marathon & Alternative Half-Marathon, there's also the Erie Marathon at Presque Isle, and Allentown's Via Marathon, which, along with the Chasing the Unicorn Marathon, and the Pine Creek Challenge in Wellsboro, all take place in September.

These are followed, during October and November, by the GAP Trestles Marathon in Meyersdale, the Steamtown Marathon in Scranton, the Veterans Marathon in Blairsville, the Bucks County Marathon in Upper Makefield Township, and the Harrisburg Marathon in Dauphin County, according to running expert Jeff Bogardo. "The year concludes," he adds, "with the Philadelphia Marathon Weekend at the end of November."

Originally from New Jersey, Jeff Bogardo relocated to Pennsylvania more than two decades ago and has remained settled in the Lehigh and Northampton counties city of Bethlehem ever since. "Beyond my love of running, I'm also a passionate gardener," adds Bogardo, wrapping up, "and happily maintain a large garden at my residence in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania."

Jeff Bogardo was born Jeffrey P. Bogardo in Hackensack, New Jersey. Young Bogardo grew up between Morris Plains, New Jersey; Miami, Florida; New Providence, New Jersey; and Birmingham, Alabama. As an adult, Jeff has lived in New Providence, Milburn, and Bridgewater, New Jersey, as well as Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where he's now been a resident for more than 20 years. Jeff Bogardo attended New Providence High School in Union County, New Jersey, and Shades Valley High School in Irondale, Alabama, before joining the ranks of Union County College in Cranford, New Jersey. He also later graduated from The Chubb Institute, where the keen runner studied computer programming.

T.I.C. responds to International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) motion 064

IUCN motion 064 wrongly alleges, without any justification, that those sourcing columbite-tantalite (coltan) in central Africa fail to follow the OECD Guidance.

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, January 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A motion(1) at the upcoming IUCN conference claims that ‘environmental degradation in Africa happens because importers fail to follow OECD guidelines on sustainable mining practices and human rights compliance (“OECD Guidance”)’. The motion alleges without any factual justification that those sourcing columbite-tantalite (coltan) in Africa fail to follow the standards laid out in the OECD Guidance.

To the contrary, the Tantalum-Niobium International Study Center (T.I.C.)(2), as the industry organisation, requires its members to comply with the requirements of the OECD Guidance. Furthermore, all tantalum smelters/refiners, that are members of the T.I.C., are required to be independently audited(3) to verify their compliance with the OECD Guidance.

“The T.I.C. membership takes seriously its leadership position in social and environmental issues for the tantalum and niobium industry, as witnessed by the fact that 100% of our smelters have been audited and verified as conflict-free through the RMAP audit process. The tantalum industry is proud of its track record in the area of verifiable compliance programs for ethical minerals extraction in central Africa and strongly condemns any and all illegal mining activities in the region” stated Dr. Daniel Persico, President of the T.I.C.

The industries that are regulated through these verification programs support tens of thousands of workers and their families while involving the whole supply chain in the process of sourcing integrity.

The T.I.C. was an early adopter of conflict-free mining initiatives in central Africa, having engaged with the tin industry, via the International Tin Association (ITA), in setting up the on-the-ground track and trace ITSCI Program from 2008 onwards. This program, underscored by OECD Guidance, remains to this day the largest due diligence program for tantalum, tin and tungsten minerals mined in the DRC and neighboring countries.

1 – 064 “Promoting sustainable and ethical mining practices in Africa”
2 – The T.I.C. is the international association for the tantalum and niobium industries. It is a non-profit organisation founded in 1974 under Belgian law that represents around 90 members from over 25 countries involved with all aspects of our industry. Further details can be found at www.TaNb.org.

Autism Workshop on Emotional Regulation Helps Children Identify What Zone Their Feelings Are In

Tzirel L. Soloff speaking at the “Understanding, Teaching, and Fostering the Development of Emotional Regulation,” workshop

Tzirel L. Soloff speaking at the “Understanding, Teaching, and Fostering the Development of Emotional Regulation,” workshop

The workshop, titled “Understanding, Teaching, and Fostering the Development of Emotional Regulation,” was conducted by behavior analyst Tzirel L. Soloff.

To be an educator you need to focus on the E.Q. (emotional quotient) as well as the I.Q.,”

— Tzirel L. Soloff

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Thursday, Jan 30, Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices (SKHOV) hosted a free workshop at Touro College, focusing on emotional regulation in children with autism. The workshop, titled “Understanding, Teaching, and Fostering the Development of Emotional Regulation,” was conducted by Tzirel L. Soloff, a behavior analyst working with students at SKHOV.

The presentation focused on the importance of self-regulation and emotional control for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and related diagnoses, as well as valuable teaching strategies, self-monitoring tools, and data tracking systems. The presentation defined education as not only providing academic knowledge but offering the social and emotional tools children require in order to thrive and succeed.

In her presentation, Ms. Soloff explained that some children self-regulate naturally, others don’t need to, because they don’t feel their emotions as strongly, and some don’t regulate at all. Ms. Soloff emphasized that self-regulation is vital for social communication and understanding, and academic success, and that students with autism are capable of learning to understand and label their feelings and make conscious choices about their behavior.

With regard to teaching self-regulation, Ms. Soloff explained that just labeling emotions is not sufficient, and that coping strategies and specific instructions for all emotional states must be included.

Ms. Soloff’s presentation outlined “zones of regulation,” with different colors corresponding to different emotional states. The presentation also outlined a “toolbox” of strategies to facilitate emotional regulation.

In conclusion, Ms. Soloff explained that the end goal is for students to identify what zone their feelings are in, and to use the toolbox system to make good choices about their behavior before the behavior escalates.

“To be an educator you need to focus on the E.Q. (emotional quotient) as well as the I.Q.,” Ms. Soloff said, “the emotional success as much as you focus on the academic success.”

Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices founded by Dr. Joshua Weinstein, offers a broad spectrum of evidence-based education and therapeutic programs to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, (ASD) and related disabilities in a warm and nurturing environment. A nonpublic, nonprofit, multi-cultural school, we provide quality treatment, education, professional training and mentoring.

Award-Winning Independent Film Wildflower, Starring Kristi Roosmaa makes World Premiere March 12-15 at the FirstGlance Film Festival in Los Angeles, California.

NEW YORK, NY, USA, January 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Wildflower, starring award-winning immigrant actress Kristi Roosmaa and under the seasoned direction of Tony-nominated producer Celine Rosenthal will make its world premiere March 12th – March 15th at the FirstGlance Film Festival in Los Angeles.

Wildflower is a short film that tells the fascinating story of an immigrant singer who travels to America to pursue her life-long dream. This independent film arrives at a time where our country is having active conversations about immigrants, how they are treated, and the value they provide to our country. This story tells a story of universal love and reminds us that things that unite us are far greater than things that divide us.

Leading actress Kristi Roosmaa is based in New York but was born in Estonia. She began singing at the age of 5 when she first performed in a local bakery and became hooked on the thrill of performing and entertaining an audience. Her career path took her to New York City and high profile performances such as singing solo at Carnegie Hall and performing with Residente feat. Bad Bunny on the Jimmy Fallon show. She now looks to build on an already impressive career by starring in a film that mirrors her own journey in many ways.

The movie has already received significant praise ahead of its much-anticipated world premiere at the FirstGlance Film Festival in March. Most recently, Kristi took home a Top Shorts Film Festival Best Actress award for her role. “Kristi's performance is very natural, and we loved the minimalistic reactions and the character's attitude. It was easy to relate to Anna. The viewer could feel her conflict and her pain, not being with her grandmother. It was a big sacrifice for her. Well done!” exclaimed the Top Shorts committee when questioned about Roosmaa’s performance.

In addition to contributing to the national conversation on immigration, this film shines a spotlight on female contributions in the film industry with its all-female creative team. This trailblazing team led by Tony-nominated director Celine Rosenthal includes Artemis Women In Action Film Festival Screenplay winner Susan Cameron, cinematographer Charlotte Dupre, and award-winning director and producer Natalie Schwan who recently won Best Short at One-Reeler Short Film Competition.

Brandy Zwicker Recommends Three Supplements to Support Men’s Health

Brandy Zwicker

10-year registered nurse, Brandy Zwicker, shares three supplements that she recommends for general men’s health

BISMARK, ND, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Even with a healthy, well-rounded diet, it can be hard to get the vitamins and minerals a man needs for optimal health. Here are three supplements Brandy Zwicker recommends to men looking to boost their health, energy levels, and muscle function.

1) Vitamin D

“Most men and women are deficient in vitamin D,” said Brandy. “But this vitamin serves an important role in men’s health. For one, studies have shown that it can help boost testosterone levels, which can help with energy and sleep apnea. Vitamin D supports bone and heart health, which is important for older men who are, in general, more prone to falls.”

2) Magnesium

“Magnesium is vital for controlling glucose levels, nerve functions, and protein synthesis,” said Brandy Zwicker. “Foods high in magnesium include bananas, black beans, and almonds. Magnesium can also support levels of testosterone. The mineral helps with constipation, muscle cramps, anxiety, and heart palpitations. It is really a wonder mineral.”

3) Omega-3s

“Polyunsaturated fatty acids such as omega-3s are well known for their anti-inflammatory benefits,” said Brandy. “The nutrient also supports cardiovascular, joint, and brain health. Omega-3s are primarily found in fish, but vegetarians and vegans can get them in walnuts and flaxseeds. If you go the supplement route, make sure it’s a high-quality product for maximum benefit.”

Another supplement Brandy recommends–maca. Maca root helps increase energy like coffee, but without the jitters, and is known to increase libido and stamina in men (women too).

“Choosing the right supplement can be overwhelming,” said Brandy. “The best place to start is with your primary doctor and getting blood work done. It’s important to know what the body needs to achieve optimal health and energy levels.”
