Your credit score is one of the most important numbers you have. Not only does it affect your interest rates when applying for a loan, it can also impact your insurance rates, certain job prospects and even your chances of renting an apartment. As a result, improving one’s credit has become a multi-million dollar industry.
What’s your credit score?
Your credit score indicates to lenders and other businesses how much of a credit risk you pose if they allow you to borrow money. The Fair Isaac Company (FICO®) uses an algorithm that takes into account 30 different factors within your credit report to arrive at a score from 300-850. The higher the score, the better the credit risk you are to lenders. Other credit reporting agencies, such as Experian, Equifax and TransUnion, calculate their own credit scores within their own ranges; however, the FICO® score is the standard that lenders use when they pull your credit score.

We all know that a firm handshake is crucial to any business encounter, and now a new study explains why. Aside from demonstrating good manners, a handshake can also diminish the effect of other nonverbal communication that might cause a negative perception. In the study, led by Sanda Dolcos, a psychology researcher at the University of Illinois, 18 men and women watched brief animated videos of two people greeting each other in a work setting. Every time, the viewers evaluated the apparent competence and trustworthiness of the person acting as the host. An open, inviting posture earned high ratings, but more so when combined with a handshake. And even among those who went on to cross their arms or scowl, an initial handshake minimized the bad impression.
