6 Best NYC Schools for Children with Autism

Selecting a proper school for a child is a big decision for every parent. However, the stakes are even higher for parents who have children with autism. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) refers to a range of complex neuron development disorders characterized by repetitive patterns of behavior, difficulties with communication and interaction with other people. The symptoms are often present from early childhood and affect child’s daily functioning. Some children with ASD avoid eye contact, have delayed speech and language skills, or become preoccupied with repetitive behavior. Insidermonkey experts made a list of 6 best NYC schools for children with autism.

We have picked one school from the list as always. The first one is The Manhattan Children's Center.

7 Easiest US States to Pay Off Student Loan Debt

Let’s take a more in-depth look at this student loan debt epidemic. On average, graduates make payments of about $350 per month in the lengthy process that is student loan repayment. Though, may skew the picture slightly, as median monthly student loan payments are more in the neighborhood of $200, indicating that higher-than-average debts may be warping the overall degree to which graduates are in debt.  Even with these markedly lower monthly student loan figures, however, many still struggle to make these payments, with student loan delinquency rates–figures tracking those over 90 days delinquent or in default–above 11% at last glance. Insidermonkey experts made a list of 7 easiest US states to pay off student loan debt.

We have picked one state from the list: Arizona. It has a average student loan balance of $22,609. The average annual wage is $46,209 and the ratio of student payments to disposable income is 14.22%. Though Arizona posted an average annual wage slightly lower than the national average, the state more than makes up for this $3,000 discrepancy with an average student loan balance $15,000 below the average debt of a student graduating in the class of 2016.  With that kind of financial wiggle room, the prospect of emerging from a canyon of student loan-induced debt becomes much more less daunting almost instantly.

10 Best Cheap Polarized Sunglasses for Fishing

In case you are not familiar with the polarized sunglasses, let us quickly explain their purpose. Unlike normal sunglasses, lenses in polarized sunglasses are covered with a chemical film that greatly reduces glare caused by the sunlight hitting the water or any other flat surface. Glare makes your vision blurred, distorts the color perceptions and ultimately is very harmful to the eyes. Thanks to that chemical film, the reflected light is blocked and there is no glare effect, thus making your view clearer in the bright light. Polarized sunglasses are not only popular with fishing enthusiasts but also people who enjoy other outdoor activities like skiing, golfing and cycling. Insidermonkey experts made a list of 10 best cheap polarized sunglasses for fishing.

We have picked two glasses from the list for now. First one is JiMarti JMP44. Which is 29.99$. These sunglasses were $49.95 at one point, so this is a perfect chance to get them for almost half of that. Some users swear JiMarti JMP44 is good, while others say they feel cheap. If you do decide to buy them, you should know there is 30 Days money back guarantee, so why don’t give them a chance. Second one is Strike King Plus. Which is 17.07$ and for this price, you will get Shiny Black Frame, Gray Lens, while other color combinations of the frame and lens cost $5 more. The users say that the sunglasses are doing their job exceptionally, but that they tend to break really quickly. You can also check our list of 11 Best Sunglasses Brands in the World.

10 States with The Highest Childhood Asthma Rates in The US

Being a child and suffering from asthma can be very traumatic. When I was five years old, I developed an allergy to dust and pollen. My allergy, wasn’t causing asthma, but it was causing allergic rhinitis, brilliantly combined with allergic bronchitis, which is also called chronic bronchitis. “Chronic bronchitis in childhood may have considerable overlap with asthma with respect to etiology, psychopathology, and treatment”.

Top 10 Most Boring Cities in The World

Boring doesn’t necessarily mean bad. Some of the places on our list are actually quite nice. What they lack in cultural heritage they make up in other things, like business opportunities and low crime rates. After all, not everyone is after wild nightlife, fancy restaurants, and glamorous events. Some people quite enjoy living in most boring countries to live in. To each his own. Some are, however, downright awful places that don’t offer anything to either its citizens or visitors. The only reason people live in them is that they can make a lot of money quickly and are planning on moving out as soon as possible. Insidermonkey experts made a list of top 10 most boring cities in the world.

We have picked one city from the list as usual. Frankfurt (Germany) is one of the biggest transportation hubs in the world and one of the largest financial centers in Europe. With so many people and money pouring into the city, it is surprising to find it on the list of most boring places, yet here it is. One of the reasons behind it is that Frankfurt was heavily bombed during the World War 2 and almost all of its old historic buildings that provide charm and authenticity to many German and European cities have been destroyed. Today, it is a modern metropolis of glass and concrete like so many others around the world. You can also check our list of 10 most boring countries to live in.

7 Easiest Bob Dylan Songs to Play on Guitar

I can’t say I always loved Bob Dylan’s music. When I was young, I preferred heavier and faster tunes, so Bob Dylan’s ramblings and softer approach weren’t the things that appealed to me. I noticed, however, as I got older, I listened to Bob Dylan more frequently. Especially when I discovered Blood on the Tracks album which contains some of my favorite songs. It must have been the fact that I started paying more attention to the words, and realized that Dylan was a lyricist genius. That was proven when he received Nobel Prize in Literature in 2016. One great thing about being a fan of his music is that he recorded 38 studio albums, so you’ll always have something to listen. Insidermonkey experts made a list of 7 Bob Dylan songs to play on guitar.

We have picked two songs from the list for now. The first one is Tangled Up In Blue. One of my favorite Dylan’s songs, Tangled Up In Blue opens the list. There are numerous interpretations and versions of the song, and almost all of them require a capo. I think this version of the chords I provided will make it sound close to original without it. Rhythm can be a bit sketchy at the times so prepare to practice more than you would like. Second one is The Times They Are A-Changing. This isn’t a hard song by any means. The chord progression is simple and repeats itself on all the verses. Also, the chords are pretty much basic, so all you need to do is get the strumming pattern correctly.

10 Best Smartphones with Nano SIM Card Slots

Those of you who are not familiar with SIM cards, I bet you use CDMA phones. SIM card basically allows your phone to communicate with the carrier. It contains all the relevant data, including your phone number, and enables you to use any phone. They are used by the carriers that rely on GSM systems. GSM system is used internationally, so you’ll be able to use your phone with the existing SIM card even while traveling. You have complete freedom. On the opposite side, there is CDMA system which track serial numbers of the phone for identification of the user. If you have CDMA phone and get stuck in a country where there is no CDMA network, you are on your own. Insidermonkey experts made a list of 10 best smartphones with Nano SIM card slots.

We have picked one phone from the list for now. Sony Xperia XZ. Taking everything into consideration, Sony’s latest attempt to fight with Apple and Samsung looks really good. You can’t find a smartphone with a better display (5.46 inches, 3840 x 2160 pixels resolution) on the market, that’s for sure. To run those 4K videos smoothly, there is Octa–core processor, 4GB of RAM accompanied by 64GB of storage. Cameras are also a blast, with rear packing 19MP and front having 13MP. Still, compared to other smartphones in the same price point, Sony Xperia XZ Premium doesn’t have what it takes to beat them.

25 Least Racist Countries in The World

You would think that racism is a thing of the past, when finding someone of a different skin color was a unique and rare experience, in a time when being different from someone else was enough of a reason for discrimination, but unfortunately it is present even today. Consider the world we live in now. There are no restrictions on travel, anyone can go anywhere and most countries now have people of a variety of skin colors, races and nationalities living together. In such a world, it would almost seem absurd to think that anyone could be racist, but unfortunately, our planet is not perfect and such issues are currently major problems. Insidermonkey experts made a list of 25 least racist countries in the world.

The least racist countries in the world are setting a good example for the world to follow. Racism is one of the curses of the society that is still prevalent in some parts of the world even when we have achieved great heights in every field of modernism. Some countries are still crippled under its grasp even though the awareness of the importance of anti-racist laws is gaining momentum every day. However, some countries have been proactive in recognizing its evils and working towards the achievement of a more harmonized and diversified society. Surprisingly, one of the most progressive continents in the world, Europe, has its fair share of racists, as evidenced in the 11 Most Racist Countries in Europe.

11 Most Painful Cruel Horrific Deaths and Execution Methods in History

There is a huge difference between accidental deaths and those caused by people. For example, we have found a story about a nuclear accident in Tokaimura in Japan where two workers suffered a high level of radiation. Being exposed to radiation, their bodies lost DNA from cells, so the cell reproduction was stopped. Their bodies could not make tissues, muscles, and skin, so they melted and turned into liquid. What is more terrifying is the fact that one of the workers survived six months in this condition, while the other one died three months after the accident. The only thing nurses and doctors could do was to use plaster to prevent meat from falling off their bones. Insidermonkey experts made a list of 11 most painful cruel horrific deaths and execution methods.

We can say that nature and unfortunate fate are sometimes cruel to humans. However, horrific and brutal murders have been committed by people themselves throughout our history. If we take a look at some methods of execution around the world, we can conclude that people have mastered the art of humiliating, torturing, inflicting pain and causing horrible deaths to other people. How to explain the need to inflict so much pain on another human being which was clearly evident in one of the medieval execution methods practiced in France when a person’s hands and legs were tied to horses that pulled them in opposite directions until the person was split in half? There are many ways to die, but you sure as hell wouldn’t want to die in one of these 10 Most Painful Worst Ways to Die.

16 Easiest Tax Deductions and Credits to Claim on Your Return

If you are anything like me, hearing the word “taxes” makes you cringe. Whether it’s taxes you pay when buying something new, taxes that are taken out from your check, or the taxes that are due when April rolls around, none of it is fun to look at. Obviously, I understand why we pay taxes and where our taxes dollars go to (whether I agree with it or not), but taxes are never fun, especially when you are in your early twenties, still trying to get your career started. Most recently, I discovered how harsh New York taxes can be on your paycheck as I’ve recently moved to the city to start a new job. Insidermonkey experts made a list of 16 easiest tax deductions and credits to claim on your return.

We have picked two ways from the list for now. The first one is Charitable donations. Most of us don’t know that donations made to charity can be claimed on our returns. What’s even better is we can also do the same thing to itemized donations. If you usually donate, you should always make sure to have a receipt from the charity, which states the value of your donations to ensure your claim. Second one is States sales taxes. This one is a little specific to where you live since it only applies to individuals living in tax-free states. To know how much you are allowed to deduct, you can refer to the table provided for tax-free states. You can also check 10 Countries with the Lowest Tax Rates.

Insidermonkey experts made a list of 6 best smartphones with 1080 HDMI output.

We have picked one phone from the original list for now as usual. The first one is Sony Xperia Acro HD. The specs on Xperia acro HD won’t impress you since the smartphone packs only 11GB of storage (although Sony claims that it’s 16GB) and 1GB of RAM. This smartphone with 4.3 inches display also has Dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, 12MP rear camera, and 1.3MP front camera. Still, it was obviously ahead of its time.

10 Etsy Success Stories in 2017

To determine a shop’s success within 2017, we scoured Etsy to find shops that said “On Etsy since 2017.” All shops have a start year like this right below their shop name.

8 Best Android Phones With Expandable Memory in 2017

Memory wasn’t so significant when phones didn’t have cameras or mp3 support and other audio files. There were mono phony and polyphony melodies, but they would get annoying pretty quickly. I think my first phone with support for videos, music and higher qualities photos was Sony Ericsson K510i. It had about 30MB of internal memory, so memory card was a life saver. I continued to upgrade the memory of my phones with memory cards until a few years ago when I got a phone with 32GB of storage and didn’t need any. Yes, I have tons of music, apps, photos, videos and honestly, I never check out my storage space. Insidermonkey experts made a list of 8 best Android phones with expandable memory in 2017.

Probably the smartphone manufacturers saw there were plenty of users like me and cut the memory card slots out of their phones for good in the past couple of years. Samsung made that thing when they removed the memory card slot from Samsung S6. Some of the big manufacturers like Huawei, LG, ZTE, and Xiaomi also opted for this. The decision wasn’t received warmly by the smartphone users, and now almost all major smartphone manufacturers are bringing the memory card slot back. Besides Apple of course, who stubbornly declines to give that option for their users because of their business model. We recommend you to check out our list of 7 Best Smartphones with the Best Cameras in 2017.
