New Credit Card Rules

February 22, 2010

New rules from the Federal Reserve guiding how credit card companies handle consumer credit accounts go into effect today. The intent of the new rules is to protect consumers who use credit cards from costly practices that were previously unregulated. Along with protecting consumers from unexpected increases in credit card interest rates, creditors are prohibited from issuing a credit card to a consumer younger than 21, unless the consumer has the ability to pay, or obtains the signature of a parent or other cosigner with the ability to make the required payments.

Other changes state that your credit card company must tell you when they plan to increase your rates and fees. Also, monthly credit card bills will include information on how long it will take you to pay off your balance if you only make minimum payments.


Dinner and a Movie

February 8, 2010

Thinking about what to do for that special someone to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Date night with a homemade meal will be extra memorable with some help from the Library where there are hundreds of books in the culinary collection. The hardest part of preparing something homemade will be deciding what to make. If an entire dinner is more than you want to commit to, perhaps preparing one of the luscious recipes in Baked from the Heart: Gifts of Love for Special Occasions by Stephanie Greenleigh will provide you with a creative and thoughtful gift idea that will impress and delight.

Along with good food, entertaining with a movie always creates a pleasant addition to a romantic evening. The Library has several popular and recent movie releases on DVD that can be checked out. Titles in the romantic comedy genre include: Julie & Julia, 50 First Dates, The American President, No Reservations, The Break-up, and Waitress. Students may check out one DVD/video at a time for a loan period of one week. There are dozens of other popular movies in your JWU Library collection to choose from.
