An Amazing Financial Site Fighting Debt: The Simple Dollar

"The Simple Dollar began as a site for people who are fighting debt and bad spending habits, while trying to build a financially secure future and still afford a few luxuries in life. Trent Hamm started The Simple Dollar in 2006 after going through a complete financial meltdown. You can read his full financial biography for all of the details. Trent decided to throw himself head first into fixing his financial situation and getting out of debt. Within eight months, he was able to pay off all of his credit card debt as well as his vehicle, and he also established an emergency fund. After that, he decided to share with the world what he learned and help those who were struggling with the same situation." - About / TheSimpleDollar

"Make a plan today. Your family may not be together if a disaster strikes, so it is important to know which types of disasters could affect your area.  Know how you’ll contact one another and reconnect if separated. Establish a family meeting place that’s familiar and easy to find." Ready.gov

"Launched in February 2003, Ready is a National public service campaign designed to educate and empower the American people to prepare for, respond to and mitigate emergencies, including natural and man-made disasters. The goal of the campaign is to promote preparedness through public involvement.

Ready and its Spanish language version Listo ask individuals to do four key things: (1) stay informed about the different types of emergencies that could occur and their appropriate responses (2) make a family emergency plan and (3)  build an emergency supply kit, and (4) get involved in your community by taking action to prepare for emergencies." - Ready

Basements are inherently vulnerable to flooding since they are located below ground level where many pipes and systems are positioned and ground shifts happen. Even if your basement has never flooded before, it is still possible that yours will be affected at some point. - Basement Guides

"EducatorLabs is comprised of school librarians and media/market research specialists who work as curators and conservators of the scholastic web. In previous decades, our resource collections were finite and we knew our card catalog backwards and forwards; nowadays, modern technology provides us with a seemingly infinite inventory of educational resources. Unfortunately, there simply are no comprehensive card catalogs for the internet and, sadly, many untapped resources go undiscovered by most teachers." - EducatorLabs
