Mobile Network Freedom Pop To Launch Free App In Spain

FreedomPop has made a name for itself by offering its users limited data, texts, and minutes for free as well as offering upgraded phone plans for as low as ten dollars a month. Users on the free mobile plan are able to add minutes, data, and texts for as little as one cent if they need to or they can upgrade their plan to increase their limit. By industry standards FreedomPop offers the absolute lowest phone plans and saves people a minimum of $80 a month on an individual phone plan compared to industry giants. According to an article written in Mobile World Live the mobile phone company plans to launch their WhatsApp messaging app in Spain for free.

Currently WhatsApp is free but limited in both the United Stats and England however the upgraded plans range from $9.99 to $59.99 for additional data. The reasoning behind this generous expansion is because according to FreedomPop’s data a whopping 70% of users in Spain use WhatsApp as a daily messaging system and that 70% makes up 90% of the texting community. FreedomPop’s goal has always been to provide a system where anyone can communicate for absolutely free and because nearly the whole country uses WhatsApp to text it only makes sense to foot the bill to keep their mission going.

Along with the free service FreedomPop will be offering a standard plan that offers free voice, data, and roaming in thirty-one countries. Applications for beta testing are being currently being accepted until they fill their target quota. FreedomPop only launched their services in England last year and they are already predicting they’ll have 100,000 users however they expect at least 500,000 in Spain. The company plans to continue their global expansion by taking it one country at a time.

How VTA Publications Can Help You Plan For Retirement

Many Americans face an increasing fear of retirement years. They have come to discover the unreliability of a government system that promised them peace in retirement and have reached the conclusion that it is not as dependable as it was once thought to be. Americans are currently seeking dependable and predictable retirement solutions to ensure the security of their lives and the lives of their families in their elder years. VTA Publications, a company that develops and publishes quality digital coursework for individuals who desire to learn specific skills, has developed a course that promises to help people to retire with peace and dignity.

The course developed by VTA publications regarding retirement was created as an answer to an ever increasing problem among citizens of the United States. These Americans are facing situations that they did not expect to face in their lives. Inadequate preparation for retirement could be caused by any number of reasons, but is most commonly caused by a misunderstanding of the way the retirement system works. Alternatively, a lack of preparation for retirement could be caused by procrastination on the part of an individual who puts off any efforts to build a retirement income until it becomes too late to act.

In any case, their website shows VTA Publications has put together a retirement course to help individuals at any stage of life to build a retirement income that they can be proud of. This course teaches users to take steps to eliminate the debt in their lives. Without paying off debt, people could be forced to pay large bills during their retirement years that could rob them of any living expenses they may have worked hard to save. Additionally, the debt could be passed on to the relatives of the individual upon their death. This is usually an extremely unwanted consequence of debt. The course, therefore, emphasizes the importance of paying off one’s debt before advancing in the next steps of the course.

The remaining courses in VTA’s retirement course teaches the users how to effectively earn, manage, and maintain their income in an effort to build their retirement income up to an adequate level. The course shows the users appropriate ways to invest portions of their income into accounts to create high yielding returns. The course also teaches users how to figure out the correct amount of money that they need to save in order to live the lifestyle they wish to live upon retirement. A big point that MoreMoneyReview noted as a reason this is a course people definitely need to try.

A Bustle Review of Wen By Chaz

Have you been looking for new hair products on QVC? As you know, there are lots of shampoos and conditioners in the market, so it’s hard to find the ones that will work best for you. Luckily, Bustle’s Emily McClure tested WEN hair conditioner by Chaz Dean  for seven days, to give you an accurate idea of how the product works.

McClure states that it takes lots of product for the conditioner to work. If you have really thick hair, you’ll need about 32 pumps of the product! She noticed that her hair immediately felt thicker, which was definitely a good sign.

Over the next few days, Emily used Wen hair conditioner each day in the shower. She saw that her hair wasn’t as frizzy as before, but it did feel noticeably greasy. On the fourth day, when she didn’t have time to wash her hair, she said that her tresses felt heavy. She added a few curls for more volume, but the curls fell pretty quickly.

Near the end of the week, McClure says that her friends commented on the shininess of her hair, which let her know that her new hair treatment was working. Overall, Emily recommends WEN Hair conditioner, but says it’s best for women who wash and style their hair every day.
