  • Blessing of Being Alone?

    first_imgWe all have had the experience of being alone.Maybe just for a few days. Maybe for years. Our roommates, partners, spouses etc. are sometimes allowed out of our immediate reach to explore, visit and relax on their own. Often, we chose to live alone or life decides such a path for us.But do we act differently when we are alone? Do our habits change, get worse or better?My other has been traveling for work lately, leaving me at home with our 4 pets for days at a time. Although in theory I like the idea of this kind of freedom, I am actually ashamed at how I have handled it.I have wasted it. I watched too many movies to mention, failed to explore, exercise, fellowship and grow as I had planned.I turned to the useless noise of TV over the calming sounds of music. Rather than walk my buddies so we would all get some exercise, I have confined our travels to the back yard.I am not experimenting in the  kitchen but rather relying on take out.WHY I am regressing? Do I care for myself only to impress my husband? NO. So why then do I fail to care for myself in his absence?Truthfully, I am ashamed and resolved to stop these bad lonely induced habits.The reason I do these things is irrelevant.I vow, next time I am alone, to:Do laundry / cleaning and wash my window blindsmake sorbet or sherbet from scratchwalk my dogsrun myselfVisit a farmer’s marketwrite in my journal (every day)visit with friendsGo out – enjoy being outNOT watch TVNot be such a wussWhat do you do alone that you won’t, can’t, don’t do with others around? Any advice?Do you go for a long hike? Run? Bike ride?Do you make souffles and cakes just for fun?I welcome your advice.last_img read more

  • Why Liverpool signed Fabinho over Arsenal star Lucas Torreira and Chelsea midfielder Jorginho

  • Goading, filming of teachers ‘particularly nasty’

    first_imgOtago Daily Times 18 Nov 2011School pupils are deliberately goading their teachers to breaking point and then posting film of the resulting meltdowns online. More than one in 10 New Zealand teachers have been or know a victim of “cyberbaiting”, says the Online Family Report published by internet security company Norton. Secondary Principals’ Association president Patrick Walsh said it was extremely worrying and frustrating for teachers who became victims. “It’s not a major problem … but when it does happen, it’s particularly nasty and insidious, and particularly damaging to the teacher’s reputation and wellbeing.”The survey also found 25% of New Zealand teachers were friends with pupils on social networks. But 85% of all teachers believed such friendships exposed them to risks. Mr Walsh said he was about to put out a president’s comment to principals next week on the issue.The disciplinary tribunal of the Teachers’ Council, of which Mr Walsh is a member, had noticed inappropriate teacher-pupil relationships often started through text-message or Facebook contact. “It leads to a breakdown in the professional relationship between students and teachers. So unless it’s for professional reasons, we would caution against that.” Mr Lyon said many teachers used social media to bolster pupils’ learning, but it could be safest to create a distinct profile to do so. The Norton report was compiled after more than 19,000 adults, children aged between 8 and 17, and teachers in 24 countries filled out online surveys in February and March.http://www.odt.co.nz/source/nz-herald/187135/goading-filming-teachers-particularly-nastylast_img read more

  • Dick Advocaat quits Sunderland role

    first_img Press Association Sport understands the former Holland boss, who refused to discuss his future after the game, had decided to go whatever the result. It leaves the Black Cats in a state of flux once again with sporting director Lee Congerton understood to be working a period of notice after tendering his resignation. But as he departed, Advocaat said: “I want to thank everyone who has stood behind me. This is a very special football club with so many great people, but I feel it is the right time to do this – not for me, but for the club. “I have made the decision to go after only eight games as I felt it was important to give everyone time to turn things around – like we did last year. I am thankful to the chairman (Ellis Short) for understanding my feelings and I remain on good terms with everyone at the club. “I wish Ellis, Lee, all of the staff, players and of course the supporters, who made me feel so welcome here, the very best of luck for the rest of the season. I have some wonderful memories to take with me and I hope I will return to see everybody again in the future.” Advocaat’s number two Zeljko Petrovic has also left the club. Short, who is now embarking on the search for a replacement, said: “I am truly saddened by Dick’s decision, but I respect him for his honesty and for doing what he feels is right for the club. “He is a man of integrity and a true football person. He was hugely respectful of the club in taking this decision and he acted 100 per cent in our best interests. Dick Advocaat has left his job as Sunderland’s head coach just four months after being persuaded to delay his retirement plans for a year. “It is also testament to his character that he has foregone any kind of a financial settlement, something which is very unusual in football. “I want to place on record my sincere thanks to Dick. He will be remembered with great affection by everyone at Sunderland and there will always be a warm welcome for him here at the Stadium of Light. “While this isn’t a situation any of us envisaged being in, what is important now is that we regroup quickly and focus on the rest of the season.” Former Black Cats defender Sam Allardyce, who has been taking a break since leaving his post at West Ham at the end of last season, figures prominently on an early list of candidates being drawn up by Short. Sunderland are also considering up-and-coming managers, as they did when they appointed Paolo Di Canio and his successor Gus Poyet, with the names of Burnley’s Sean Dyche, Karl Robinson of MK Dons and Burton’s Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink having been mentioned in dispatches. Former Leicester boss Nigel Pearson is available, while there is a romantic school of thought touting Wearside goal hero Kevin Phillips as an outsider. However, Allardyce’s availability, proven track record and connections with the club make him an attractive proposition. The 60-year-old, who had a brief and ill-fated spell with derby rivals Newcastle earlier in his career, was linked with the job during the summer after Advocaat had rejected Short’s initial advances, but he admitted at the time that he was planning to take an extended break from football. Only time will tell if the vacancy at the Stadium of Light is the right one for Allardyce, but what is certain is that it is a big one. The current season is the club’s ninth since their return to the top flight under Roy Keane, and they are now looking for their seventh permanent manager or head coach since the former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland skipper resigned in December 2008. They can boast only one top-10 finish during that period – they secured 10th place with 47 points under Steve Bruce at the end of the 2010-11 campaign – and have flirted with relegation in each of the last three seasons with Di Canio, Poyet and Advocaat each dragging them back from the brink. Indeed, they have won just 26 of the 114 Premier League games they have played since the start of the 2012-13 season, and with the new £5.14billion broadcasting deal due to come into force next year, life back in the Sky Bet Championship is simply not an option. The international break will give the club time to recruit a replacement, who would ideally be in place some time before the trip to West Brom on October 17. His second game would be a home clash with the Magpies, who coincidentally provided the opposition for Di Canio, Poyet and Advocaat at the same stage of their respective tenures with all three enjoying famous victories. The 68-year-old Dutchman, who was parachuted in to mastermind a nine-game rescue mission at the end of the last campaign, has walked away with the club sitting in 19th place in the Barclays Premier League on three points after winning none of their opening eight fixtures following Saturday’s 2-2 draw with West Ham at the Stadium of Light. Advocaat’s departure was confirmed in a club statement which said: “Sunderland AFC has announced that Dick Advocaat has left his position as head coach at the club. The Dutchman informed the chairman of his decision to step down from his role and departs the Stadium of Light with immediate effect.” Press Associationlast_img read more

  • David Moyes on the hunt for a job despite ruling out Swansea position

    first_img “But the job for managers is nearly impossible now and, because of that, I think we’ve lost the plot a wee bit over the whole situation. “It’s difficult to have stability or vision at any club. I was fortunate to have my best years early on at Everton, but I had one good year and then one bad year until we sorted it out and got stable.” After his sobering eight-month spell as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor at United ended in April 2014, Moyes attempted to rebuild his career in Spain’s Primera Division at Sociedad. It did not prove a success as Moyes spent just under a year in the Basque Country, but the 52-year-old said he was delighted to see Gary Neville recently take the plunge into coaching at Valencia. “When I went to Spain I hoped more British managers would follow,” Moyes said. “We keep importing foreign managers on these shores and I used to say to the LMA (League Managers Association) why can’t we send our best coaches abroad, especially the best leagues in Spain, Italy and Germany? “We’ve been struggling to get into those leagues, so I’m thrilled Gary’s gone out there. “It’s a chance for him to showcase British coaches but Gary will encounter difficulty at Valencia because it’s an incredibly tough club. “We played them last year and lost 2-0 and the press there were asking me after: ‘Do you think we can catch Barcelona and Real Madrid?’ “I told them: ‘No chance’. They see themselves as competing with Atletico Madrid, but that’s impossible as well because they’re a really good team. “But it’s a great challenge for Gary and he will experience things that he’s not seen before.” Moyes, the former Everton, Manchester United and Real Sociedad boss, has been heavily linked with succeeding Garry Monk, who was sacked on Wednesday after overseeing only one victory in 11 Barclays Premier League games at the Welsh club. But Moyes told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on talkSPORT: “I’m not interested in the (Swansea) job, I let that be known earlier in the week that it wasn’t for me. David Moyes says he is ready to get back into management despite ruling out a return at Swansea. Press Association “When I was in Spain I was getting offered numerous jobs to come back to England “And since I’ve lost my job I’ve had several offers to come back here as well as offers to go back abroad. “I want to spend Christmas at home with the family if I can, but if the right job comes up that really excites me I’m ready to go. “I don’t need a rest or a break, but I want to make sure the job is the right one.” Bookmakers made Moyes among the early favourites to succeed Monk, but the Scot feels the 36-year-old was unfortunate to lose his job at the Liberty Stadium after steering to a best eighth-placed Premier League finish last season. “Swansea have had a really good model,” Moyes said. “But if you ask people where you would expect Swansea to finish – I know they were exceptional, in the last few years they’ve done a great job – but I think most people would say if they could even get close to the top half they’d be doing well. “Garry is a young manager who had a good year. He was having a sticky patch like Jose Mourinho and should have been given the chance to put it right. last_img read more
