In addition, heating should be kept on constantly, including overnight, to prevent pipes freezing and then bursting.

I recently got a call from a college friend who wanted advice on how to get approved for the best credit card possible . He said he had applied and applied but for some reason had still not been given use of a single card. What should he do differently, he wondered, when applying for cards in the future?
My advice to him: immediately stop applying and open a secured credit card because it provides both guaranteed approval and a safe way to rebuild credit.

The following op-ed by Harvey Rosenfield, the founder of Consumer Watchdog and the author of Proposition 103, was published in The Daily Journal of Los Angeles on Monday, November 15, 2010.
