President Biden has extended the interest-free payment pause for most federal student loan borrowers through Sept. 30. But after that break ends, paying $0 may still be a necessity for some borrowers. You may be able to qualify for a $0 monthly payment at that point by enrolling in an income-driven repayment plan or suspending payments altogether via deferment or forbearance. An income-driven plan is usually the best choice because of benefits like potential loan forgiveness, but compare all your options if you’ll need longer-term relief. While you can’t switch repayment plans while payments are paused, you can figure out a strategy and prepare now.
After great results at the ATP tournament in Miami, BH tennis player Damir Dzumhur returned to Sarajevo, and talked about his alleged move to Belgrade, new tournaments that are waiting for him and the Olympic Games in Rio.After some speculations that Dzumhur has moved to Belgrade, BiH tennis player denied this and explained what it was all about.“I want to make this clear, it was pulled from my statement in the wrong context. I train in Belgrade because of better conditions, my fitness and tennis coach and psychologist are there. I am forced to be in Belgrade, just because of training and better conditions. I am still citizen of Sarajevo, I live in this city and I host the press conferences here. I will never leave Sarajevo,” stated Dzumhur.He also announced exhibition matches with Novak Djokovic and some other tennis players from the former Yugoslavia, which could be organized at the end of this year or on the beginning of the next one.“According to the latest information that I got from Nole, he really wants to come to Sarajevo and BiH. He hopes that by the end of this year or early next year, we could organize one match in each capital of countries of the former Yugoslavia, so the matches would be played in Sarajevo, Zagreb, Belgrade, Ljubljana, and we’ll probably go to Montenegro as well,” said BiH tennis player.The Olympic Games in Rio are one of the main goals for Damir this year, but before that he has important tournaments as well.“Of course, the Olympic Games in Rio are one of my main goals. This year I approached this goal, but I need more good results until the end of Roland Garros, because the list for the Olympic Games will be made than. With this result I’m very close to it, so I hope to keep this pace. There are six or seven tournaments that count for the Olympic Games, and I hope that I will have good enough results for the placement. New Masters is in Monte Carlo, where I have to play qualifications. Then comes the tournament in Barcelona from Series 500, and then the tournament in Istanbul from the Series 250. After that, comes the break and preparations for Roland Garros,” concluded Dzumhur.(Source: D. B./Klix.ba) read more
The last time the teams met was two years ago, when Valencia defeated Quartz Hill in the first round of the playoffs. Valencia (26-3) is coming off a first-round sweep of Jordan of Long Beach. “It’ll be fun,” Robertson said of playing against a friend. Robertson, who has committed to UC Irvine, had 25 assists and three aces Tuesday. Henn had nine kills and four aces in the Rebels’ sweep of Alhambra, Quartz Hill’s 11th consecutive victory.

The left-hander accounted for five of Quartz Hill’s final 10 points in that game, helping the Rebels (14-5) pull away after a 19-19 tie. Friends and rivals: Quartz Hill senior Tara Henn will see a familiar face when she looks across the net against Valencia. Henn plays on the same club team as Valencia senior setter Taryn Robertson. “I don’t know much about (Valencia) yet,” Vocke said. “I know Tara knows all about them. And I’m sure they’ll know about us – they were here (scouting) with a camera (Tuesday).” Sophomore Chelsea Hamilton just might have played her way into the starting lineup for the Quartz Hill High girls’ volleyball team. Hamilton is usually a part-time player for the Rebels, but, after her performance in Tuesday’s Southern Section Div. I-AA playoff victory over Alhambra, Quartz Hill coach Larry Vocke is considering a larger role for the player he views as a potential anchor of future Rebels teams. Quartz Hill plays a second-round match tonight at 7 at Foothill League champion Valencia. Hamilton’s youth has steered Vocke from inserting her into his starting lineup. read more
