Chase is eliminating these big credit card benefits as of August 26

Credit card companies are taking a hatchet to their benefits for customers — and there’s no end in sight, with the latest announcement from one of the nation’s biggest issuers.

Chase gets ready to eliminate Price Protection and Return Protection

Effective August 26, Chase will no longer offer Price Protection or Return Protection to its customers. Some customers were informed of the change over the weekend.

Price Protection is a beloved benefit that’s available across several card networks. In general, it promises to refund the difference in price between an item you buy and an advertised sale price that may pop up on that same item anytime between 60 and 90 days down the road.

Chase’s competitor Citi announced just days ago that they’d be paring down their proprietary price protection program called Citi Price Rewind.

But Chase is going one step further than Citi did and axing its version of price protection completely.

Also being shut down at Chase is Return Protection, which makes it up to customers if they buy something they’re unhappy with and the merchant refuses to take it back and refund their money. Chase currently offers up to $ 250 for each eligible item with a $ 1,000 annual maximum as part of its current return protection policy — but all you’ll get is a big, fat goose egg come August 26!

Yet as Chase taketh away, the card issuer also giveth. Cardholders of select products such as the Chase Freedom Visa Platinum will have Trip Cancellation/Interruption Insurance added to their card on August 26.

Beginning on that date, the added coverage will provide reimbursement of up to $ 1,500 per person and $ 6,000 per trip for pre-paid, non-refundable passenger fares. To meet the criteria to get the money, your trip must be canceled or cut short by sickness, severe weather or other covered situations.

Money expert Clark Howard has long recommended trip insurance for cruises and for when you’re going to be touring or traveling on a trip that requires prepayment of thousands of dollars.

So on the plus side, Chase’s addition of cancellation/interruption insurance for some customers could negate the need for them to buy third-party trip insurance. Just be sure you read through Chase’s policy carefully to see what it covers and what it excludes before deciding to forego traditional trip insurance you might buy elsewhere.

LP Pathfinders: top Instagrams from August 2017

javugi

With August’s top picks from our Instagrammin’ Pathfinders, we’re hugging the coast, surmounting mountains and watching the waves in all corners of the globe. From the drama of Zanzibar’s skies to a chilly voyage of discovery, here are the shots that’ll give you itchy feet, wherever you are.

Alaska, USA

‘I find glaciers to be beautiful, otherworldly blue wonders of nature when on land. But seeing (and hearing) Alaska’s Hubbard Glacier from the ocean is way more impressive while on a boat in an almost frozen sea dotted with tiny floating chunks of ice. The blue colors are more spectacular when highlighted against the ocean in the foreground and Alaska’s mountains behind.’ – Jonathan, @jonathanhopwood

Why we like it: Alaska holds a certain mysterious charm for travellers, not least owing to its areas of vast, icy wilderness. Jonathan’s shot showcases these wild, Alaskan landscapes perfectly, beautifully framed by the porthole of his boat. 

Marsaxlokk, Malta

‘I have a thing for fishing boats, whether they’re on the Suffolk Coast or Cornwall in the UK, pretty little Greek harbours or in Normandy, France. So I had to visit Marsaxlokk, arguably the most authentic and beautiful fishing village in Malta, so that I could see and photograph the traditional luzzu boats. The harbour here really is a stunner and the bright colours of the boats are really appealing. The background of this photo gives you an idea of the traditional Maltese architecture too.’ – Clare, @suitcasesandsandcastles.

Why we like it: Malta’s technicolour boats have long featured in travellers’ photos, but there’s something about how they look in Claire’s capture, alongside the North African style architecture of Marsaxlokk, that encapsulates Malta’s many cultural flavours perfectly.

Zanzibar, Tanzania

A post shared by Javi Lorbada (@javugi) on

‘Walking around Nungwi was tremendously relaxing – not only could you enjoy the amazing sunsets that the beach offers, but you could also enjoy watching the locals coming back and forth in dugout canoes and wooden boats while fishing.’ – Javi, @javugi.

Why we like it: Zanzibar and shipwrecks are somewhat synonymous, but the lighting and angle of Javi’s shot really adds a flourish of drama to this otherwise still image. The dark hues of the sand and boat only serve to highlight the sky’s incredible colour palette, and the peripheral palm fronds add that all-important finishing touch.

Jammu and Kashmir, India

‘I heard the low rumbling of horns sounding all throughout the sprawling monastery, but couldn’t figure out where the noise was coming from. After roaming through hall after hall, I finally ventured to the roof, where I found the source of the sound… and this incredible view!’ – Alex and Sebastian, @lostwithpurpose.

Why we like it: Despite the medley of bright colours that make up this capture, it still manages to convey complete serenity, which is completely beguiling. The frame of the two young monks overlooking Ladakh also adds a narrative to the picture by illustrating the region’s religious communities.

O’ahu, Hawaii

A post shared by Nick Alvarez (@berealtravel) on

‘Due to its big swells and warm weather, the island of O’ahu is paradise to surfers. While watching the sunrise at White Plains Beach, I looked on as dedicated surfers entered the water one by one. With Diamond Head and Honolulu far off in the distance, this particular surfer paused before entering the water, pumping himself up to conquer the waves.’ – Nick, @berealtravel.

Why we like it: The sign of a compelling image is how much it makes you want to dive right into it, and with those perfect waves, moody purple skies and surfer poised with his board, that’s exactly what Nick’s capture does.

Auto sales, Harvey contributed to slowed consumer spending in August, U.S. says

Dinged by slow auto sales, U.S. consumer spending softened in August, according to Commerce Department figures released Friday.

Consumer spending ($ 18 billion) rose just 0.1%, a marked change from the previous month, the department said. Its Bureau of Economic Analysis said much of the lull could be attributed to Hurricane Harvey, which slammed into Texas and Louisiana last month.

“The August estimates of personal income and outlays reflect the effects of Hurricane Harvey that made landfall in southeastern Texas on August 25th,” the agency said. “BEA cannot separately quantify the total impact of the storm on personal income and outlays because most of the source data used to estimate the components of personal income and outlays do not separately identify storm impacts.”

The Federal Reserve is closely watching the numbers as it gauges whether to raise interest rates once again later this year, market watchers said.

Before a rate increase is a given, the Fed is on the lookout for “some firming” in the months to come “but it doesn’t need to be substantial,” Gregory Daco, chief U.S. economist at Oxford Economics, told Fox News Business.

Consumer spending slowed in August, U.S. says

The Commerce Department also said that auto sales dropped 1.8% last month and was a primary reason for slowed spending. The good news is that inflation remains resiliently low.

While consumer spending is a main indicator of the health of the U.S. economy, money expert Clark Howard says Americans should be saving as much money as they can. One of the primary items that households spend big on is the grocery bill.

Here are three ways consumers can save money at the grocer

  • Change where you shop 

  •  Save money with store brands

  •  Compare prices at different stores

RELATED: 21 ways to spend less money on your grocery bill

As household spending dipped in August compared to previous months, Clark is always looking for ways to help consumers save on clothing purchases.

For instance, the best time to buy clothes is Thursday evenings, before the busy weekend crowds. Also, negotiating for better prices is a time-tested money saver. Even though they are coy about advertising it, many retailers are willing to the prices of a competitor — you just have to ask.

The Put This On Twilight of Summer MixIn August, summer seems to…

The Put This On Twilight of Summer Mix

In August, summer seems to get bored with itself. The evening light is a little lazier, the heat lingers but doesn’t really cook. Faded are June’s optimism and July’s reckless abandon. Kids may even briefly look forward to school. There’s a few more chances to catch that summer feeling, though. A few more campfires, cookouts, and clambakes–occasions to break out your best print shirt before that first chilly day reminds you to pull your fall shirts and shetlands out of storage. -Pete

Summer songs are a bit of an, uh, obsession of mine. Over the years, one thing stays true: I may want to live in a perpetual state of mid-June but I want all my music to sound like late August: “tinged with fragility and marked by melancholy.” I realize that doesn’t exactly sound like a party but the end of summer isn’t about getting turnt. It’s where we take that extra moment to take in orange sherbet sunsets and enjoy nights without nary a jacket. I can’t quite explain how you take that and translate it into a song but our playlist suggests that many an artist has found their way to capture that sublimity. -Oliver 

To help you savor those late summer evenings or last days at the beach, music writer, scholar, and DJ Oliver Wang and I put together a mix–we all love music at PTO and we’ve done this before, but never with the help of a professional like Oliver. We traded song suggestions, tinkered with the sequencing and edited it all down to 20 songs that capture the perfect laid-back summer vibe. I tested it out last weekend in several summer settings–notably in the car and out back on the deck–and let me tell you, it goes. -Pete

What’s on TV tonight? Shows to watch on Sunday 13 August from North Korea: Murder in the Family to Autopsy: Cory Monteith

WHAT can’t you miss on TV tonight? Our guide to the must-see shows…

NEW! North Korea: Murder in The Family, 9pm, BBC2

North Korea: Murder in the Family: This fascinating documentary meets people close to Jong-nam and uncovers a bitter family rivalry
North Korea: Murder in the Family: This fascinating documentary meets people close to Jong-nam and uncovers a bitter family rivalry
BBC

He’ll happily tear into North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (right) in 140 characters on Twitter, but in spite of being taunted by the launching of ballistic missiles, disregard for UN sanctions and threats to “annihilate” the US, what is it that’s continued to stop President Donald Trump from launching a military attack on the dictatorship?

Perhaps it’s because he’s fully aware of exactly what sort of man the world is dealing with.

An example of the tetchy tyrant’s ruthlessness appeared to rear its deadly head on 13 February this year, when Jong-un’s half-brother Kim Jong-nam was assassinated at Kuala Lumpur airport in Malaysia using a banned chemical weapon, VX nerve agent.

The murder is thought to have been orchestrated by North Korean secret agents – but why?

This fascinating documentary meets people close to Jong-nam and uncovers a bitter family rivalry that’s just the tip of the iceberg in the Pyongyang palaces rife with paranoia, unpredictable brutality and very, very bad hairdressers.

LIVE! World Athletics Championships 2017 from 1pm, BBC One & BBC Two

Laura Muir (above) in the women’s 5,000m could be the Team GB golden girl on the final day of the Championships. Which sadly means our Lycra onesie had better go back into the wardrobe!

NEW! Autopsy: Cory Monteith, 10.05pm c5

Autopsy: Cory Monteith: Featuring interviews with the actor and dramatic re-enactments of events before his death
C5

On 13 July 2013, Glee star Cory (above) was found dead, aged 31, in a Vancouver hotel room.

Featuring interviews with the actor and dramatic re-enactments of events before his death, this documentary tells the story of a battle with substance abuse that began at just 13 years old and led to a ‘fatal cocktail of heroin and alcohol’ taking his life.

LAST IN SERIES! Ross Kemp: Extreme World, 9pm, Sky One

Ross Kemp: Extreme World: Patrolling the Mediterranean sea with the Libyan coastguard, Ross (above) witnesses the capture of 750 migrants desperate to get into Europe

Patrolling the Mediterranean sea with the Libyan coastguard, Ross (above) witnesses the capture of 750 migrants desperate to get into Europe.

Cramped on to dinghies, Ross is almost reduced to tears when he sees one of them is pregnant, another breastfeeding her baby.

It’s affecting TV that highlights the scale of the humanitarian crisis in North Africa.

The Dappered Space: Most Wanted Affordable Home Style August 2017

The Dappered Space is a series designed to help guys apply the sense of personal style they’ve developed to the space they inhabit. Watch for articles on furniture and decor sales & picks, advice on how to style a room or work space, and tackling creating a space that reflects your own (and perhaps a significant other’s) personal tastes. We’ll suggest items that can be sourced online, but always keep in mind that deals can be found at consignment and thrift stores, local stores with floor models, discount stores, and even yard sales.

As is the case with the Most Wanted Affordable Style series on this site, this is a list of suggested items in the styled space arena that recently caught our attention. Whether because of the good price, the great design, or the eye-catching attributes, the following picks showcase a few items that might more finely tune your own home style.

 

Crest Bentwood Chair – $ 149

Crest Bentwood Chair from West Elm

Shared on our twitter feed: Any chance we can get some dining room tips in the next #dapperedspace @Dappered? The wife wants new chairs. Ask and you shall receive. I’ll tackle a dining room scenario soon, but in the meantime here are a few dining room chair options. The featured option, the Crest Bentwood Chair from West Elm, is the dining room chair(s) I own. I originally went with cheaper fabric dining chairs from Target that one of my cats quickly turned into his favorite scratching posts. Thus we had to switch the chairs out to non fabric options. These wood chairs from West Elm are good looking and surprisingly comfortable. High price, but they are high quality.

 

Boombox by Hollis Brown Thornton – $ 24-$ 2,400

Boombox by Hollis Brown Thornton

A very retro looking piece of art, where the “pixelation and computer manipulation represent the merging of the physical and digital reality.” (Quoted from the 20×200 website.) If you’re looking for some wall color in a room that leans modern, this might make a great addition to your wall hangings, and is sure to be a conversation piece. See more works from the artist here.

 

Rustic Wood Mason Sconce – $ 19.99 ($ 24.99)

Rustic Wood Mason Sconce

If you don’t want to tackle actually trying to wire an electrical sconce, but like the idea of having some light on a wall, this is a low maintenance way to go. It’s obviously not going to provide bright light, but it will provide good ambiance on a cool fall night. Create a dramatic entry way to or from a room by placing one of these on either side of the door. You could even hang it outside in a protected space, or use it as a very stylish nightlight if you have need to light a hallway. Available through Cost Plus World Market.

 

Threshold Double Old-Fashioned Glasses (4 pack) – $ 11.99

Threshold Double Old-Fashioned Glasses

The season is coming when many switch from lighter liquors to the dark stuff. We no longer want mixed cocktails over ice, we want something that will warm us from the inside. These old-fashioned glasses have a great price point, and an interesting look.

 

Set of 4 Insect Slate Coasters – $ 47

Set of 4 Insect Slate Coasters

Not necessarily the most affordable right now, but these are a seasonal product at Nordstrom (notice the cobwebs under the coasters). They may be marketed as a Halloween item, but these can be used year round. If you like them, but can wait, these might show up discounted come early November. Since they’re slate, and graphically interesting, these double as decor, not just an object of utility.

Sarah is a long time member of the Dappered team, typically working behind the scenes editing posts, taking some photos, and keeping the books in good standing. Occasionally she’ll come out from behind the curtain to offer her two cents.

Draya Michele Is Cassius’ August Cover Story

Draya Michele is the August cover subject for the good folks at Cassius

Says CASSIUS:

Here’s a quick (former) reality (star) check. CASSIUS tapped the entrepreneur/actress/designer/MILF to grace our August cover for more than just her beautiful face and banging body. People, Draya is out here winning—literally—and what she shared with Xilla Valentine in a CASSIUS exclusive interview reveals much more than any IG picture could ever show.

For starters, as is usually the case when you spend actual quality time with a gorgeous woman (who happens to be an ex-stripper), you’ll likely discover that the one-dimensional sex goddess you made her out to be in your mind isn’t real, but that the actual person who is, is infinitely more fascinating.

Be sure to get the full Cassius interview experience HERE. Also, behind the scene’s Draya photos from their Cover Shoot.

Most Wanted Affordable Style – August 2017

Whether you’re looking for gift ideas or a quick upgrade for yourself, expect these to come around about once a month. You’ll find new arrivals and old favorites, especially good deals, or maybe something pricey to keep an eye on for future sales. The potential best of the best, which you may or may not have seen already. Got a tip on something that deserves to end up in the monthly Most Wanted? Send those in here.

 

H&M Premium Quality Grey Suede Shoes – $ 69.99

H&M Premium Quality Grey Suede Shoes

If past is prologue, then these are gonna be a great buy for the price. Cheap suede is almost always more reliable and better looking than cheap smooth leather, and many of H&M’s “Premium Quality” shoes are made in Portugal. And don’t underestimate the versatility of grey suede shoes. Wear em’ with light chinos now in the heat, and then pair them with dark wash denim and a brown leather belt once it cools off.

 

Suitsupply Light Blue Havana Fit Sportcoat – $ 399

Suitsupply Light Blue Havana Fit Sportcoat

Part of their recent pre-order fall 2017 collection that just launched. That icy-shade of blue is something else. Sorta like the lightweight cotton sportcoat that Banana Republic is selling right now, only in a more breathable and versatile wool. Ships in early September. Wear it with jeans, an OCBD, and those grey suede H&M shoes, and you’ve got a laid back but still really sharp looking date outfit.

 

U.K. Made Lavenham Quilted Vest – $ 136.50 FINAL w/ 30MORE ($ 295)

U.K. Made Lavenham Quilted Vest

Spendy, even with the extra 30% off code, but made in England and built to last. Available in two colors, and, unlike many cheaper vests, you can get the sizing more dialed in thanks to precise chest sizes (36, 38, 40, etc., instead of S/M/L). Matte cotton exterior with cotton cord trim. Lightly padded/insulated with polyester. A heritage garment that you’ll look great in (and feel good wearing) for years to come. Now if we could just get some weather to roll around where wearing this would be necessary, and then we’d be in business.

 

Citizen PRT Black Dial Nylon Strap Watch – $ 137.50

Citizen PRT Black Dial Nylon Strap Watch

A little like the Glycine Combat Sub on Massdrop… only… not. Quartz movement, but it is their Eco-Drive so it’s powered by light. Sweet, 007ish striped strap. Power gauge indicator between 6 and 9. 42mm case size. 100m water resistance, so, should be able to take some wear and tear. Bezel, unfortunately, is fixed. Not sure why they decided to do that.

 

The Request: BR… bring back your lightweight wool mac please?

Banana Republic Lightweight Wool Mac

They’ve got a couple of new, cotton blend macs on their site (in preparation for the fall weather). But what about their outstanding, lightweight wool number from early Spring? That thing was incredible. Full review here. Fingers crossed they bring it back.

 

BONUS: Hinterland Season 3 – Streams Free w/ Netflix

It’s back and available in the US via Netflix. Also known as “Y Gwyll” in Welsh, it’s a dark, supremely well written police drama set in small-town Wales. The main character, DCI Mathias, has a good sense of functional but still sharp style. It’s a perfect show to fire up if you’re getting sick of the heat of summer, and are already looking forward to the changing winds that fall brings.

10 Best Movies to See in August: ‘Detroit,’ ‘The Dark Tower’ and More

Ah, the dog-days month of summer moviegoing! This August is pretty light on potential blockbusters (save a certain long-awaited fantasy-Western by one Stephen King), leaving room for a number of counter-programming indie curios worth investigating. Robert Pattinson, Channing Tatum and Aubrey Plaza all do some major-league acting in three respective, remarkably offbeat films; Kathryn Bigelow

History of Computing in Education: Ifip 18th World Computer Conigress Tc3 / Tc9 1st Conference on the History of Computing in Education 22 – 27 August 2004 Toulouse, France

History of Computing in Education: Ifip 18th World Computer Conigress Tc3 / Tc9 1st Conference on the History of Computing in Education 22 – 27 August 2004 Toulouse, France


This book looks at the history of computing in education from two points of view as a history of the impact of computing on education over the past forty years and as the use of the history of computing as a pedagogical tool in computing education. These two intertwined views look back at computer education and the ways in which organizations have attempted to use computers to enhance teaching and learning from elementary education through university studies in several countries. Topics include: considerations of cybernetics and informatics; government sponsored open source software for school education; learning with the artificial sciences; technology leading to historic changes; ICT in Catalan schools; streams in the history of computer education in Australia; growth of computing technology for education in India; computing and education in the UK; evolution of e-inclusion for the disabled; educational hypermedia computing; keyboard training; studies of educational computing projects; and using computing history to enhance teaching. History of Computing in Education is unique in its topic, the field having not been the subject of extensive study in the past. While there have been several books on the history of computing, a study of the impact of computing on education is only now receiving due attention. This book derives from contributions made at the History of Computing in Education conference at the IFIP 18th World Computer Congress, held in August 2004 in Toulouse, France and sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP). Teachers, students, researchers, authors, and education developers should find this work as a welcome addition to their educational repertoire. It will also provide new dimensions of breadth and depth in the evolution of computing in education.
