Fixed Home Loans Jump

Fixed Home Loans Jump - Each and every time that the 30 year fixed mortgage rate has moved up drastically it is the case that the Federal Reserve has taken the necessary steps to keep interest rates low. In the last several weeks the federal reserve continues to sit on the sidelines while the 10 year treasury rate yield moves to the upside.

This could mean that the overall economy is improving greatly and the Federal Reserve feels that there is no reason to keep interest rates low. It could also mean that the Federal Reserve is waiting until the new year to take the necessary steps to push interest rates back to lower levels. Even though rates have moved up they are still very low when looking at historical charts.

For those looking to refinance a home loan or car loan in the current economic environment is very important to remember that it takes an impressive credit score and a very low debt to income ratio to have any opportunity at these low rates. With a credit score that is in excess of 740 and the debt to income ratios this sub 40% homeowners will have positioned themselves very well with the good financial decisions they have made in the past.

If the opposite is true of homeowners have seen a huge drop in their credit score is going to be nearly impossible to take advantage of the fixed home loan interest rates that are below 5% at the present time. Homeowners with a poor credit score will probably find that they receive interest rate quotes that are much higher than the advertised rates on the television and Internet.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
