How to make your relationship work when your schedules Don’t gel

first_img Share Tweet When it to comes to juggling work and life schedules, many partners feel like ships passing in the night. Whether it’s business travel, long hours at the office or family responsibilities that are keeping your schedules out of sync, at some point, it’s bound to start wearing on one or both of you.So how can you stay connected?Make “together-time” a must: When you’re both home, make sure to carve out together time even if it means just watching a movie or sharing a meal. And take out your calendars every month so you can put aside time for an actual date away from home. Even if your date is hot chocolate together during one of your breaks at work, it’s essential to find time to connect.Separate business and pleasure: Because your ‘together’ time is precious, it might work to communicate about the bills, the grocery list or upcoming events through email or text. This way you’re not sacrificing the hours you physically have together by going over household issues.Do something unexpected and sweet: You don’t need to be in the same place to show you care. Try sending your partner a video message on Skype. It’ll take you a minute to record, and will stick with your partner all day. Even a simple note in his bag or a voicemail on her machine “just because” will remind you both that you’re a priority.Don’t let small things turn into major blow-outs: The bed might not always get made and the dishes might remain in the sink one day too long but… these aren’t the things you should obsess over in your limited time together. Find time to check in about expectations so you’re on the same page, but don’t let temporary aggravation turn into a heated debate.It’s also great to keep your options open; you or your partner might not be living the dream at your current jobs, so networking and exploring other career opportunities might be a way to get back on the same or a saner schedule.Huffington Post Sharing is caring!

DSS defends decision to implement increase retirement age

first_imgLocalNews DSS defends decision to implement increase retirement age by: – September 6, 2011 Dominica Social Security buliding. Photo credit: investdominica.comThe Dominica Social Security is defending a decision to advocate for the implementation of an increase in retirement age and a higher contribution rate.A report has recommended that the retirement age move from 60 to 65 and the Dominica Social Security has been conducting sensitization meetings around Dominica.Deputy Director of the Dominica Social Security Augustus Etienne said the changes are imminent but the public’s impute is essential.“Because of the age of the system and because of the age of the population, we have a lot of people retiring and we are getting to point that the reserves that we have been able to accumulate overtime will be depleted in the future. When that happens we are going to have to charge people the real cost of the benefits that we are paying to them. In other to avid that, we have to make changes on a gradual basis so the system will be in place for future generations,” he said.He said the recommendations have been there for years but sometimes it’s difficult to implement some of those changes.“People are saying that things are looking bleak but every three years we are recommended by law to undertake a review which will indicate what changes will be made to the system. The system is not meant to be static. Overtime changes must be made and where you fail to make changes when you were suppose to make changes, the time will come when you will have to make drastic changes that will be too much for the people will deal at the time,” he explained.Dominica Vibes News Tweet Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share Share 14 Views   no discussionslast_img read more

Venezuela sets 2012 presidential election date

first_imgNewsRegional Venezuela sets 2012 presidential election date by: – September 14, 2011 Sharing is caring! 12 Views   no discussions Share Sharecenter_img Tweet Share Mr Chavez – here wearing an indigenous head dress – says cancer will not stop his reelectionVenezuela’s presidential election will be held on 7 October 2012, the electoral authorities have announced. The date is earlier than expected, as Venezuela’s presidential polls are usually held in December. President Hugo Chavez has said he will seek another term to continue his left-wing “revolution”, despite undergoing treatment for cancer. The main opposition coalition will choose a candidate to stand against him in a primary on 12 February. Mr Chavez immediately expressed his confidence that he would win a third six-year term. He wrote on Twitter: “7 October 2012: your destiny is written! We will write another revolutionary victory on your page! We will live and we will conquer!”The left-wing leader, who has governed Venezuela since 1999, has said he wants to serve at least two more terms, which would take him through until 2025. Mr Chavez, 57, says he is now convalescing after having surgery for cancer in June and subsequent chemotherapy, but the exact nature and extent of his illness has not been made public. Speaking before the election date was announced, he promised an energetic campaign despite his ill health. “You won’t see Chavez hiding,” he said.“You’ll see a recuperated Chavez touring the country as a candidate, touring the streets at a rhythm set by circumstances.”ChallengersAs well as giving Mr Chavez time to recuperate, the October election date gives the opposition Table of Democratic Unity (MUD) plenty of time to campaign. The favourites to win the opposition nomination in February’s primary are the governor of Miranda state, Henrique Capriles Radonski, and the governor of Zulia state, Pablo Perez. Opposition leaders have welcomed the announcement of the election date, while expressing concern at the long transition period it will leave before the start of the next presidential term in February 2013. “This election date, two months earlier than is traditional, has an advantage in that we now have a date,” MUD executive secretary Ramon Guillermo Aveledo said. “But the disadvantage is that it extends the lapse between the presidential election and the taking of office,” he added. The opposition alliance says Venezuelans have had enough of what they say is Mr Chavez’s poor economic management and dictatorial style. They are also hoping that dissatisfaction with high crime rates, inflation and electricity shortages will boost their support. But Mr Chavez still has strong support, particularly among the poor who have benefited most from his socialist policies, which have seen Venezuela’s oil riches spent on services including health and education. Mr Chavez’s personal charisma and promise of revolutionary change have helped him secure repeated election victories since he first won the presidency in 1999. Parliamentary elections last year showed Venezuelan voters evenly divided between support for Mr Chavez’s socialists and the opposition. BBC Newslast_img read more

Wimbledon’s famous logo at the All England Club AFP Sport looks at the key questions facing the organisers of what is generally regarded as the world’s most prestigious tennis tournament. What are the options for Wimbledon this year? – Wimbledon, which is scheduled to take place from June 29 until July 12, has been staged every year in peace time since 1877, shelved only during the two world wars. However, the spread of the coronavirus has brought havoc to the 2020 global sports calendar. Tennis is at a standstill until June 7 with the entire European claycourt season already wiped out. Roland Garros, traditionally the season’s second Grand Slam of four, has been rescheduled from its traditional late May-early June slot to September 20-October 4. The grass court season is relatively short, five weeks for the leading events, so Wimbledon would appear to have time on their side. However, building and preparation work at the All England Club site in leafy south-west London takes two months to complete and is set to start at the end of April. There is also the issue of when the coronavirus will peak. By Thursday, there had been 170 fatalities in London alone with 578 nationwide. Around 9,500 people have been infected so far in the United Kingdom. Health is the top issue for an event which attracts not only the superstars of the sport, but also close to 500,000 spectators each year as well as 6,000 staff and around 3,200 accredited media. Why can’t the tournament be played later in the year? – A slot has opened up in the calendar after the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics until next year. However, Wimbledon organisers know that a postponement by a just fortnight to take advantage of that opening would solve little. It would also mean running into the build-up to the US hardcourt season, the precursor to the August-September US Open in New York. “At this time, based on the advice we have received from the public health authorities, the very short window available to us to stage The Championships due to the nature of our surface suggests that postponement is not without significant risk and difficulty. “Playing behind closed doors has been formally ruled out,” said a spokesman.center_img Two-time Wimbledon mixed doubles champion Jamie Murray said he appreciated the difficulties. “I don’t know how long they could push it back,” Murray, 34, told the BBC. “There’s a lot of other stakeholders, a lot of other tournaments to consider. Even things like daylight for the tournament. “Once the tournament gets put back, there’s less and less daylight.” What would be the financial implications of a cancelled Wimbledon? – The tournament is an annual money-spinner. For example, in the 2017-2018 fiscal year, it was reported that Wimbledon generated $336 million with a pre-tax profit of $52 million. Over 90 per cent of that was ploughed into British tennis. The BBC, which broadcasts Wimbledon, will have a two-week black hole if the event is called off. They reportedly shell out around $72 million a year for the rights. Who would be the losers of a cancelled Wimbledon? – As well as the purely sporting implications of a binned Wimbledon, Britain’s well-heeled would suffer a jolt to their busy summer social season. The Henley Royal Regatta on the River Thames, a feature since 1839, has already been cancelled. Wary eyes will now be cast towards June’s Royal Ascot, which has drawn British royalty and the cream of society since 1911. The British tabloids would also be stripped of their two-week Wimbledon headline bonanza and celebrity fix. Worries over daylight: Britain’s Jamie Murraylast_img read more
