My Turn: The gift of listening rewards those who still themselves

I sit on our patio swing seat, reading a book, “Cutting for Stone” (by Abraham Verghese). The page describes a young boy who follows his father to a small Ethiopian hospital operating stage where the boy is invited to bend down and listen to the unusual clapping sound in a patient’s pulse. The boy is intrigued with the magic of sensing auditory clues to bodily malfunctions. Afterward, his father gifts him a stethoscope to further his skills.

I lay the book down on my lap and start swinging, forward and back with swirling motions. I try concentrating on the errant sounds around me of which I rarely take note. The more I listen, the more types of sounds populate my mind and I make a mental list of them. I am gradually amazed to realize that they seem to be instruments in a pickup chamber orchestra, playing in unison.

Get a $100 Amazon gift card when you sign up for Amazon’s Prime Rewards Visa

prime-rewards-100-gift-card

This is a pretty hard offer to pass up, especially with Prime Day just around the corner.


Amazon

There are Prime Day deals you can get right now and Prime Day credits you can earn by shopping in Amazon stores. But this may be the biggest news yet: For a limited time, if you sign up for an Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card, you’ll get a $100 Amazon gift card. And not in four to six weeks or anything like that; it’s awarded as soon as you’re approved. That means you can have it at the ready for Prime Day on Oct. 13 and 14.

Previously $70, that $100 gift card is a pretty serious perk. This is not a one-and-done proposition, however: The no-annual-fee Visa also pays you 5% back on just about everything you buy from Amazon and Whole Foods. You get 2% back at restaurants,

If you’ve been paying attention to the credit card landscape, you’ve probably heard that banks are increasing requirements for approval and slashing credit limits on existing cards. While banks are indeed tightening restrictions to avoid riskier customers, they are always looking to attract low-risk, high-earning customers. And right now, they are using some very tempting offers
