Microsoft Flight Simulator developers are constantly releasing new assets and add-ons for the popular simulation, and today is no exception.

We start with CJ Simulations who have released new screenshots of the Eurofighter Typhoon via the product page Flight’s store only.

While no release date has been announced, we now know that it will cost $34.99 and include the following features.

Fully native MSFS aircraft

The Typhoon was coded with Microsoft Flight Simulator native “Model Behaviors” animations and built to MSFS operational specifications to minimize issues with future simulator upgrades.

The CJ Simulations Typhoon is fully compatible with MSFS native materials and leverages the new simulator’s features such as rain effects and sounds, fully reflective glass, native aerodynamic sound structures, the new “modern” aerodynamic system and customized vision controls for wheel chocks and covers.

Other features include authentic night lighting that includes user controlled “sneak lights” for combat missions and custom coded animations for flaperons and slats based on the aircraft’s airspeed and angle of attack.

Numerous external animations include the canopy, crew leaders, tail hook and all control surfaces, as well as a customized delta and canard flight model based on real-world data for the Typhoon.

The Typhoon is also fully compatible with virtual reality headsets.

How to Pay Off Your Veterinary School Loans Faster https://gosic.org/how-to-pay-off-your-veterinary-school-loans-faster/ Thu, 22 Sep 2022 13:38:33 +0000 https://gosic.org/how-to-pay-off-your-veterinary-school-loans-faster/

Our goal at Credible Operations, Inc., NMLS Number 1681276, hereafter referred to as “Credible”, is to give you the tools and confidence you need to improve your finances. Although we promote the products of our partner lenders who pay us for our services, all opinions are our own.

As a veterinarian, you may have significant student debt. If you want to refinance your veterinary school loans, here’s how. (Shutterstock)

Becoming a veterinarian can be a very lucrative career path. According to American Veterinary Medical Association. But even with a salary of this size, it might take you some time to pay off your student debt.

If you’re looking for ways to pay off your vet school loans faster, refinancing could be a solid option. Here’s how to determine if this is the right choice for you.

By visiting Credible, you can learn more about refinancing student loans and compare rates from several private student lenders.

How to Refinance Veterinary School Loans

Refinancing veterinary school loans works much the same as refinancing other student loans. This involves turning several federal or private student loans into a new private loan, ideally with a better interest rate.

If most of your loans are federal student loans, you might be better off consolidating them into a direct consolidation loan instead of refinancing them. A direct consolidation loan comes with reimbursement based on income options, abstention and access to student loan forgiveness programs. If you decide to refinance federal student loans with a private lender, you will lose these federal protections.

Whichever option you choose, the process of refinancing your loans works as follows:

  1. Shop around for the best rate. Get quotes from three to five lenders to make sure you get the best rate.
  2. Choose a lender. Once you have the quotes in hand, choose the lender that suits you best.
  3. Complete a loan application. Answer questions about your personal details, income and existing debt.
  4. Sign the papers. If you are approved, you will read the loan documents and sign on the dotted line.
  5. Start making payments on your new loan. Once the documents are signed, the lender will disburse the funds. Continue to make payments on your existing loans until you get written confirmation that they have been repaid. Then you will start making payments on your new loan.

Requirements to Refinance Veterinary School Loans

Private Student Loan Companies set their own refinancing requirements, so these may differ from lender to lender. But in general, lenders will look at the following:

  • Sufficient work history Your lender will review your employment history to ensure that you are able to repay your loan.
  • Good credit score Lenders consider your credit score as an indicator of the likelihood that you will repay the loan. If your credit needs work, apply with a co-signer who has good credit to increase your chances of being approved and getting a better rate.
  • Decent debt ratio Lenders also review your debt to income ratio, which is a measure of your income relative to your existing debts, before you are approved for a loan. This helps them determine if you have enough income to handle an additional debt payment.

You can easily compare prequalified rates from several lenders using Credible.

What to consider when refinancing a veterinary school

Like any other financial decision, refinancing your veterinary school loans has both advantages and disadvantages.

Best Lenders to Refinance Veterinary School Loans

Although there are not many lenders that specialize in refinancing veterinary school loans, most lenders that refinance student loans will accept loans for veterinary programs. When evaluating potential lenders, consider the following criteria:

  • Interest rate Look at the lowest rate offered by each lender and whether they offer a fixed interest rate or a variable interest rate.
  • term of the loan It is important to consider the length of your repayment period, so that you can plan how long you will repay your loan. Consider the different repayment options available to you.
  • Maximum loan balance Find out whether or not you can borrow enough to cover your existing debt.
  • Costs Make sure you are aware of the fees the lender will charge for refinancing your student loan.
  • Discounts — If the lender offers discounts, see which ones you will be entitled to. For example, many lenders offer a rate reduction if you set up automatic payments.
  • Co-signers If you think you need a co-signercheck if the lender offers the possibility of releasing your co-signer after you have made a certain number of payments.

Alternatives to refinancing

If you think refinancing your veterinary school loans isn’t right for you, here are some alternatives to consider. Keep in mind that these options won’t help you pay off your loans faster, but they might make your monthly payments more manageable.

  • Income Oriented Repayment Plans Federal student loan borrowers have the option of choosing an income-based repayment plan, which limits your monthly payment to a percentage of your current taxable income and household size.
  • Withholding — Forbearance temporarily suspends your student loan payments, but interest continues to accrue on your loans and will be added to your principal balance at the end of the forbearance period.
  • Adjournment Loan deferral also temporarily halts your payments, although usually for a longer period than forbearance. You may need to have a qualifying life event to qualify for a deferral. For federal loans, the federal government will suspend interest accrual while you are on borrowed time.

A fitting start to autumn: forecaster says low temperatures, frost today could usher in harvest season | news https://gosic.org/a-fitting-start-to-autumn-forecaster-says-low-temperatures-frost-today-could-usher-in-harvest-season-news/ Thu, 22 Sep 2022 06:00:00 +0000 https://gosic.org/a-fitting-start-to-autumn-forecaster-says-low-temperatures-frost-today-could-usher-in-harvest-season-news/

CADILLAC — Temperatures haven’t really felt autumn-like so far this September, but in an ironic twist, all that is expected to change today — the first day of the autumnal equinox.

Accuweather meteorologist Brandon Buckingham said while the summer months were slightly below normal overall — 2.1 below normal in June, 0.9 below July and 0.3 below August — September bucked that trend, with Temperatures that were 3 degrees above normal on Wednesday.

That unusual warmth is expected to be tempered today, when Buckingham said temperatures are expected to drop significantly, potentially producing the first frost of the season.

High temperatures are not expected to rise above 54 degrees during the day tomorrow, according to the National Weather Service, while low temperatures could drop to nearly 34 degrees at night.

“People may want to bring sensitive crops indoors,” said Buckingham, adding that the low temperatures could herald the harvest season for farmers in the area.

“It’s definitely going to feel like sweatshirt weather,” Buckingham said. “It’s going to have that raw October or November feel … like football season or salmon fishing weather.”

Temperatures are forecast to recover into the 60s on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but Buckingham said the remaining days of September are likely to remain much colder than at the start of the month. Buckingham said they believe temperatures will follow a “roller coaster pattern” for the remainder of the month, with rapid spikes of 10 to 15 degrees above seasonal norms, followed by cold fronts bringing autumn-like conditions back to the area.

This is a typical type of pattern on the way to a La Nina winter that the U.S. has experienced for the past three winters in a row, Buckingham said. What that means for October and November is more of the same rapid swings in temperature; For example, while temperatures could soar back into the 70s on a few days in October, those highs are expected to collapse a day later as the cold front pulls through.

Temperatures are forecast to be 1 to 1.5 degrees above normal for October overall, while temperatures in November are forecast to be 1 to 2 degrees below normal. Temperatures for the first half of December are expected to be 1 to 2 degrees above normal.

Overall, the fluctuations in average temperatures should not be too extreme, resulting in an average time of year in many ways.

The extended fall forecast calls for lower-than-usual temperatures across the country, according to the Farmers’ Almanac. The cold will really kick in in the second half of November and continue through the rest of the year.

The Farmers’ Almanac also predicts above-average rainfall for much of the central part of the country, including the Great Lakes, the Ohio Valley and Midwest, and the Rockies and Great Plains.

Buckingham confirmed there are likely to be some opportunities for active weather in the form of showers and storms over the next few weeks, but he said it doesn’t look like snow will be early this year; It’s possible the first snow could arrive by October, but given historical norms, Buckingham said it’s more likely to show sometime in November.

]]> The Leeward Islands prepare for rain, thunderstorms and gusty winds from Tropical Wave https://gosic.org/the-leeward-islands-prepare-for-rain-thunderstorms-and-gusty-winds-from-tropical-wave/ Wed, 21 Sep 2022 11:28:57 +0000 https://gosic.org/the-leeward-islands-prepare-for-rain-thunderstorms-and-gusty-winds-from-tropical-wave/

South Windward Islands prepare for thunderstorms and gusty winds as a strong Tropical Wave -Invest 98-L approaches the islands.

In St Vincent, SVG Meteorological Services said Wednesday that model guidance suggests that most of the intense activity associated with the system will occur south of SVG from today through tomorrow. However, rain accumulations of up to 50 mm (2 inches) with occasional higher amounts are still possible.

Wind speeds are likely to be between 35 and 50 km/h (20 to 30 mph) as of today, with higher gusts possible during shower activity.

A low-risk flash flood weather advisory remains in effect for the island, the Met Service said.

Wind speeds are likely to be between 35 and 50 km/h (20 to 30 mph) as of today, with higher gusts possible during shower activity.

In St. Lucia, The National Emergency Management Organization called for vigilance ahead of the weather system in a press release Tuesday night.

“The National Organization for Emergency Management [NEMO] alerts the public that the approaching tropical wave increases the risk of landslides, flooding and flash floods.”

“Residents and businesses in flood-prone areas should exercise extreme caution and familiarize their household with the nearest emergency shelter in the event an emergency evacuation is required,” NEMO said.

On Grenada A statement from the weather services at 5 a.m. said so

Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique can expect cloudy to cloudy conditions with moderate to heavy showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday accompanied by gusty winds up to 35 mph.

As a result, the Met Office has issued a warning of a medium likelihood of flooding and landslides in vulnerable areas, and a strong winds advice and a navigation advice remain in place.

Possible effects:

– Medium probability of road and river flooding

– Medium probability of landslides and falling rocks

– Broken branches and shifting loose objects

– Agitated seas due to above-average swell

Further south in Trinidad and Tobago, Met Services have issued a Severe Weather Alert 1 – Level Yellow applicable to Trinidad and Tobago from 5:00 a.m. Wednesday 21 September 2022 to 8:00 p.m. Thursday 22 September.

The report states that showers and isolated, at times violent thunderstorms are expected over oceanic waters and over Trinidad and Tobago from Wednesday morning.

Impact on Trinidad and Tobago

This activity is said to be associated with an active tropical wave with development potential over the next few days.

Gusty winds of over 70 km/h and precipitation accumulations of 75 – 125 mm are to be expected.

Street or flash flooding is likely in areas with heavy downpours.

Impacts can include larger than normal waves in both open water and the Gulf of Pariah.

Branches and loose objects can be moved in strong winds.

Traffic delays are likely in flooded areas.

Expect lulls between rainfall and thunderstorm activity.
