first_imgWhenwe think about things being unhealthy we usually think about our physical self and well-being, but the state of our emotional being is of utmost importance to the quality of life we lead. Who we surround ourselves with can have a huge impact on our emotional health and in the areas we may not have control over, for instance at work, the way we choose to interact with people can be significant in keeping a positive state of mind.One of the most important relationships we become involved with which impacts us on a daily basis is the partner we choose. For whatever reasons we are attracted to, or fall in love with our partners, the reality of that relationship as it plays out over the weeks, months and years often teaches us a thing or two about our initial reasons for being with them!Whether people change as they grow or have always had certain tendencies but managed to keep them hidden in the initial stages, or we were just too blind with new feelings to notice things that cause difficulties later down the line, people often find themselves in relationships that are counterproductive to their mental and physical health.It can be difficult to disengage yourself from a long-term partner, especially if there are children involved. If you are unhappy in your relationship and it is not due to abuse but maybe selfish or thoughtless behaviour or a simple clash of personalities, there is a good chance you can work out ways to improve it. There is always the possibility that a new approach or awareness can shift things to a healthier plane.A healthy relationship is not necessarily one where you spend every possible moment together, in fact the most successful and fulfilling relationships are those in which each person has personal interests of their own and they enjoy time with friends and family both with and without their partner. The healthier each person’s own life is outside of the relationship, the more likely they will be happier within the relationship.Relationships take work. They come with lots of ups and downs and they can give us the most intense feelings both wonderful and despairing. Sometimes we have to consider if it is ourselves who are failing to contribute to a healthy status.Also to consider is if we allow a partner to treat us less than respectfully we have to take responsibility for allowing it to continue. Not speaking up in a calm manner, or failing to communicate needs and listen to those of our partner may similarly contribute to a failing relationship.What does a healthy relationship look like? It is a relationship in which you feel safe and comfortable expressing yourself even if your opinions are different from your partner’s. It’s about having those opinions valued and listened to without judgement but with understanding.There is great importance in supporting each other’s goals in life and respecting each other’s feelings and friends. Also in accepting responsibility for yourself and accepting any past wrong doing, admitting when you are wrong and communicating openly and truthfully.It is making a concerted effort to ensure there is a fair distribution of work and responsibility for the relationship, household and children. Making money decisions together so that both benefit from financial arrangements regardless of who earns the money; as often a woman has priorities that do not allow her to pursue great financial return. Partners need to seek mutually satisfying resolutions to conflict, be able to accept change and be willing to compromise.If someone has never witnessed or experienced such a relationship it is not surprising that they expect less from a partner. Adults should be trying to model such relationships for their children or at least be teaching them about the importance of a fair distribution of power, respect for one another and encouraging each other’s goals.Knowing what you are looking for in a relationship gives you a better chance of finding it or finding someone who is willing to work with you in order to achieve a state where both of you feel valued and important.You have to offer your partner all the things that you require and not just expect it from them. If you are willing to, and you try to give your partner all they need for a healthy relationship then you deserve to receive the same.last_img read more

first_imgA founding member of the National Patriotic Party (NPP), Bomi County Senator Sando Dazoe Johnson, has announced his resignation from that party, and disclosed that he has now moved to the All Liberian Party (ALP), with an already well furnished office at its headquarters. Speaking on a local talk show yesterday, Senator Johnson said he tendered his letter of resignation last Thursday, having announced weeks ago that he had suspended his membership with the NPP, which recently signed a coalition with Congress for Democratic Change and the Liberian People’sDemocratic Party of former House Speaker Alex Tyler. The forceful chairman of the Senate Committee on Concessions said the ceremony for his membership with the ALP will soon be held at an elaborate program in Tubmaburg, Bomi County, with his new party’s political leader, Benoni Urey, himself a former NPP partisan, in attendance. Senator Johnson, who previously served NPP as vice president for administration, said his decision to sever relations with the party was prompted by failure of the national executive committee (NEC) members to include him when taking major decisions at the detriment of ordinary partisans. Johnson cited the refusal of the party’s NEC to continue an open dialogue for the inclusion of other opposition political parties on the now seemingly sealed three-party Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC).The former executive committee made specific reference to a clause in the coalition’s document that gives the Congress for Democratic Change of Senator George Manneh Weah the power to nominate the presidential and vice presidential candidates. “Those are the two most important positions in the coalition,” Sen. Johnson argued. “If the decision to choose them is allotted to the CDC, what role will the NPP play?”Senator Johnson said he moved to the ALP because it was one of the parties that the NPP, prior to the Ganta opposition parties’ conference, was already holding discussions with and encouraging to be part of a bigger merger or coalition of the opposition.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe undercover operation involved an application from a fake West Virginia-based construction company that the investigators had incorporated, even though it had no offices, Internet site or employees. Its only asset was a mailbox. Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials did not visit the company or try to interview its executives in person. Instead, within 28 days, they mailed the license to the West Virginia mailbox, the report says. That license – on a standard piece of 8.5-inch by 11-inch paper – also had so few security measures incorporated into it that the investigators, using commercially available equipment, were able to easily modify it, removing a limit on the amount of radioactive material they could buy, the report says. With that forged document, the auditors approached two industrial equipment firms to arrange to purchase dozens of portable moisture-density gauges, which cost about $5,000 each and are used to read the density of soil and pavement when building highways. The machines include americium 241 and cesium 137, radioactive substances commonly used in industrial equipment. Auditors, convinced they had enough evidence to prove their point, called off the ruse before the devices were delivered. But if they had gone ahead with the plot – which would have required extracting the radioactive materials from the machines and combining them, a job that could harm anyone in close contact – they could have built a bomb that would have contaminated an area about the length of a city block, according to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. WASHINGTON – Undercover congressional investigators set up a bogus company and obtained a license from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in March that would have allowed them to buy the radioactive materials needed for a so-called dirty bomb. The investigators, from the Government Accountability Office, demonstrated once again that the security measures put in place since the 2001 terror attacks to prevent radioactive materials from getting into the wrong hands are insufficient, according to a GAO report, which is scheduled to be released at a Senate hearing today. “Given that terrorists have expressed an interest in obtaining nuclear material, the Congress and the American people expect licensing programs for these materials to be secure,” said Gregory D. Kutz, an investigator at the Government Accountability Office, in testimony prepared for the hearing. The bomb the investigators could have built would not have caused widespread damage or even high-level contamination. But it still could have had serious consequences in any city where it was set off, particularly economic ones. As with any dirty bomb, the resulting low-level contamination would not have presented an immediate health hazard. Still, the area would have to have been evacuated and cleaned. Edward McGaffigan Jr., a member of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s governing board, said the agency took steps to improve safeguards immediately after learning about the security lapses from auditors. The commission now requires its staff to visit any company it is not familiar with before approving a license application. It is also looking for ways to change the license to make it harder to modify or counterfeit, he said. But McGaffigan said the danger associated with the amount of radioactive material the auditors were trying to buy should not be overstated. And the operation would have been much more expensive and complicated than pulling off a more conventional attack involving a truck bomb or a chemical tanker truck. “Why would I not blow up a chemical tanker on a train with chlorine in it or other toxic materials, at a tiny fraction of the cost before doing this very elaborate exercise?” he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgWhen Pep Guardiola ruthlessly cut Hart from his Manchester City squad at the start of the 2016/17 season, fans and critics were stunned.The England international had arguably been City’s most consistent player for several years and was England’s No.1Fast forward three years and after loan spells at Torino and West Ham it is hard to argue with the Spaniard’s decision making.Times have been equally tough at Turf Moor for the shot-stopper, who instantly usurped between the sticks by Tom Heaton upon his return to full fitness.Max Meyer – Crystal Palace (Free) After being informed by Unai Emery he was surplus to requirements at the Emirates, Wilshere decided to hop on the London Overground and join Manuel Pellegrini’s revolution at West Ham United.However, after starting the first four games of the season and losing every single one, the England international underwent ankle surgery.Speculation he would miss the rest of the season began to intensify, but the 27-year-old returned to action in April.Appearances from the bench during the wins against Southampton and Watford suggest those who have written Wilshere off may be premature, but he has a lot to prove next season.Gonzalo Higuain – Chelsea (Loan) Kevin De Bruyne ‘loves Man City and wants to keep winning’, reveals father getty Getty Images LATEST TRANSFER NEWS When Sir Alex Ferguson signed Eric Cantona for Manchester United in 1992, few anticipated just how much of an impact the striker would go on to have.Having failed to sign Alan Shearer and David Hirst, the Scot found his team slumped in eighth place in the Premier League and floundering behind their rivals. Eric Cantona went on to become a legend at Manchester United targets Man United joined by three other clubs in race for Erling Haaland LIVING THE DREAM Southampton thought they had snared a potential world beater when they made a £16million move for Norway international Elyounoussi last summer.Tricky, skilful and with an eye for goal, the Basel forward earned comparisons with Mohamed Salah who also earned a Premier League move after impressing in Switzerland.But unlike the Liverpool forward, Elyounoussi has struggled to carry his good form over to the Premier League with him.The 24-year-old

Glenn Murray failing to fire, it became clear goals were hard to come by for the Seagulls.Jahanbakhsh failed to record a single assist, nor did he score in his debut season in England.Whoever replaces Chris Hughton at the Amex must now choose whether to stick with the 25-year-old or try and recoup some of the record £17million for him.Stephan Lichsteiner – Arsenal (Free) IN DEMAND 11 The Iranian is Brighton’s record signing and must start delivering for whoever replaces Chris Hughton When Maurizio Sarri took over in the summer of 2018, it became apparent he wanted to replicate his success from Napoli.‘Sarriball’ initially thrilled Blues fans, but as Jorginho began to suffer, so did the team.Recruiting the Argentina international may not have been a long-term option, but Sarri hoped he would at least provide some short term relief.But with a transfer ban incoming and with just five goals from 15 Premier League appearances, it is safe to say the Italian’s gamble on Higuain has not paid off.Kenedy – Newcastle United (Loan) 11 11 This season has been no different and talkSPORT.com has compiled a list of the ten most disappointing signings from the 2018/19 season.Scroll down to see if any of your club’s signings feature!Jack Wilshere – West Ham United (Free) targets Fulham beating top clubs to the signing of Seri was probably the highlight of their season.The Ivory Coast international shot to international prominence with Nice in Ligue 1 and had the biggest sides in Europe fighting over him.However, it was Slavisa Jokanovic who pounced first and brought the 27-year-old to the Premier League.The central midfielder looked off the pace and never adapted to the demands of English football.Alireza Jahanbakhsh – Brighton and Hove Albion (£17million) The Juventus striker has struggled against the best teams in the Premier League getty Should you search online for videos of Max Meyer you will be inundated with compilations of goals, skills and technical brilliance.Despite being linked with some of the biggest clubs in Europe, Schalke never cashed in on their star midfielder and he was allowed to run his contract down.Having shown the technical ability to play as a both a holding or an attacking midfielder, Crystal Palace fans will surely have been delighted to see Roy Hodgson gleefully posing next to the 22-year-old.But doubts about Meyer’s physical attributes have continued to blight the youngster and he has struggled to feature consistently for the Eagles this season – despite all the hype. 11 11 11 If you had told an Arsenal fan before the start of the season they would be signing a serial Champions League, Serie A and Coppa Italia winner from Juventus, few would have believed you.If you had then said the player in question has more than 100 caps for his country and was known as ‘Forrest Gump’ in Italy, chances are the Gunners fans would have entered meltdown.Alas, 35-year-old right-back Stephan Lichsteiner was never going to set the world alight, but his performances this season have been woeful.With time not exactly on his side and Hector Bellerin closing in on a return from injury, do not expect to see the ‘Swiss Express’ feature too prominently at the Emirates next season.Fred – Manchester United (£52million) Kenedy’s loan move from Chelsea to the Toon in 2018 proved to be a masterstroke by Rafael Benitez as the Brazilian (alongside Martin Dubravka) helped secure Premier League football.However, a return to St James did not prove to be as successful for the 23-year-old.His season at St James Park can be best summed up by one unforgettable afternoon against Cardiff City in August.Having not completed a single pass in the first half and after having lashed out at Victor Camarasa, Kenedy then inexcusably missed a 95th minute penalty and the chance to secure all three points – disappointing to say the least.Jean Michael Seri – Fulham (£25million) getty The diminutive midfielder will be desperate to show his quality next season The last time Manchester City signed a Brazilian defensive midfielder from Shakthar Donetsk it ended up being rather beneficial.But with Fernandinho nearing the end of his career, Pep Gaurdiola identified compatriot Fred as the ideal replacement.But, as with Alexis Sanchez six months prior, United gatecrashed the party and pounced with a colossal £52m bid and snared the 26-year-old.Fred surely has more to offer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the United boss begins his rebuilding job, but he must do so quickly or else find his name associated with the likes of Eric Djemba-Djemba and Massimo Taibi amongst those who frequent Old Trafford.Mohamed Elyounoussi – Southampton (£16million) But the enigmatic Frenchman saved the Red Devils’ season and – at a cost of just £1million from rivals Leeds United – proved to be a truly remarkable signing.However, this is a rarity in today’s market and United are a prime example of that.While their financial clout is certainly not to be sniffed at, the club’s policy of splashing the cash has seen them slip behind rials Manchester City and Liverpool.United are not the only side to have fallen victim to this. With the influx of television money, clubs can afford to spend more money on signings than in previous years – meaning their transfer mistakes are all the more scrutinised. getty As the season wore on, the Norway international’s confidence drained away 11 11 Unai Emery’s face says it all really GETTY 11 11 11 Meyer hasn’t shown what all the hype is about at Palace yet Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ last_img read more

first_imgWhile the higher volume of shopping that occurs during the holiday season is a boon for retailers, comprising as much as 30% of their annual revenue, it can also amplify the chances of fraud, as consumers’ payment information is used across more transactions than usual, according to a report from Terbium Labs sent to Business Insider Intelligence.And this is bad news for banks, as they’re the most likely targets of blame once a breach compromises their customers’ personal data: When asked who they’d hold responsible if their financial data was exposed, 17% of US consumers? said they’d hold their financial institution (FI) solely responsible, and 51% would blame both their FI and the original source of the breach (e.g. the retailer).Fraud is top of mind for consumers going into the holiday season, but they are largely confident in their bank’s security measures for now.
