Here Are Few Reasons Why Background Checks Are Important

If you are a business owner and you are going to be hiring new employees in the near future, you need to know as much as you can about who you hire. Likewise, landlords need to be aware of the backgrounds of any person they are considering renting property to. Looking into the backgrounds of potential employees and tenants is just common sense. If there are any red flags, it is better to find out about them ahead of time. For example, if a person has bad credit, you should avoid renting property to them because they may have problems paying their rent. Needless to say, people with criminal records would not be ideal employees. Here are a few of the biggest reasons why background checks are important.

Criminal behavior can be detected

When you are entrusting people to work for your business, you need to know they are honest people. While there is not a way to be totally sure about this, a person with a criminal record should definitely be avoided. You do not want to have your money stolen by a person, later finding out that he or she has been convicted of theft. This bad situation could have been easily avoided if you had simply ordered a background check for this person. If you are renting a room in your home, you need to be aware if your tenant has a history of violent behavior. Remember, this person will have access to your home. Even if the person only has a few minor offenses, you would be better off renting to a person with no criminal record at all.

Financial difficulties can be detected

As a landlord, you want to have your tenant pay his or her rent on time every month. By running a background check on every potential tenant, you can find out if they have any credit problems by getting their credit score. You will also be able to find out if they have filed for bankruptcy within the past seven years. A person with bad credit or a bankruptcy in their past is very risky to rent property to. There is a good chance you will have difficulty collecting your rent. You may even need to evict this person.

DIY Cut Out T-shirts

Every woman know how valuable it is to have a good supply of 100% polyester T-shirts in her closet. They are versatile, inexpensive and can be modified in lots of different ways to create unique looks. One popular fashion trend are cutout T-shirts, which feature all sorts of designs or strategically placed cuts to enhance the simple silhouette. If you want to try your hand at an easy cutout project, this one is perfect. We’ll create a heart shape that can look different depending on the color of undershirt you choose.

Supplies

Gather these up on a large working surface before you get started:

  • Oversize T-shirt in the color of your choice.
  • Small pair of scissors for detail work
  • Chalk in color that can easily be seen

Setup

OK, you are going to be doing a little bit of drawing here. Don’t be nervous! This is just elementary school-level artwork. Lay the T-shirt flat on your work surface. Using the chalk, draw a medium-size heart in the middle of the chest area. Make sure to leave enough room for the “rays” coming off the heart. Don’t worry if your heart is not completely centered or if it’s a little crooked. The design will look good no matter what.

Drawing

Now, using the heart outline as your baseline, draw rudimentary rays or flames coming off of it all the way around. The rays should be smaller around the top of the heart where they are closest to the collar and larger around the sides and bottom of the heart. Don’t go too big, though, or you will end up with cutouts that go all the way into your armpits!

Cut

It’s time to cut out the rays. Do not cut out the heart shape. Using your small scissors, slowly make your way around the heart, cutting out all the rays you drew. It’s all right if you don’t cut exactly on the chalk lines. Any lines left on the shirt will come out in the wash. Try to make your cuts as smooth as possible to avoid jagged edges that may be visible when you wear the shirt. The cut edges will curl a bit, especially after the shirt is washed, so that will help hide uneven cuts you may have made.

You’re Done!

Now you can wear this cute shirt with any color underneath. When you are ready, you can try other cutout designs. Here are some ideas:

  • Cut a double wing design out of the back of a T-shirt
  • Skulls cut out of the front or back of a shirt is a rock ‘n’ roll look
  • Snip the sides of the T-shirt from the arm hole down to create a corset look

Celebrating A Promotion

It’s a great start of 2015 for us.  Me and the whole family were so proud because my dear husband to promoted again at work.  He is now second to the highest position in his department.  We’re very thankful for the blessings and for the manner that his hard work is recognized.  We went to see the folks in January to celebrate my birthday, and together with that, we also celebrated my hubby’s promotion.  We went to Shogun Restaurant and Grill in Tyler.

And for the second celebration, we went to Outback Steak House Restaurant in Plano.  We used the gift card that I have won from a game at a Christmas Party.  It’s odd because Outback Steak House doesn’t open until after noon.  They are not open at lunch time.  The food was okay.  The ones we got were a little salty.  So my rating for them is 3.5 stars.

What is this for?

My husband and I haven’t been to Outback Steak House before, so we were expecting that they’ll have great food.  I am just wondering why they’re not open at lunch time though.  I guess they have more customers in the evening.
