Dating Dreams Without Commitment

first_imgThe career is just like your friend with whom you aim to be with lifetime. This can only be done when you are committed enough. It is not only illogical but unethical as well to date without commitment. It not only hurts financially but also in terms of emotions, time and other resources.The dating with your dream and passion is just like pursuing a lifetime goal. Continuity with an honest zeal is the basic ingredient. What is actually prevalent in the society is the discontinuity of the relationship for varied reasons and the same is true for the career path.Most of the times when we find that the aim that you have been striving for is unable to fetch the good response then it is worth deciding that should you continue with this or not? However, it is the litmus test time also as various ups and downs are part and parcel of any relation or passion.It is the fact of the matter that most of the relations or career don’t fetch the high results in the earlier phases but your commitment matters though it must have an adequate time frame for the final output and decision.Short term relations are not suggested and are just for fun or time-pass but your career can’t be taken the same way. It is, in fact, the long term association and should be respected in the same manner. The positives and the negatives are mostly the external attributes as narrated by the people surrounding you but being your life the decision has been all yours.This means that there is a bit of a difference between commitment and inspiration. If you are committed then you find ways to inspire yourself. If don’t find enough inspiration to continue then you are bound to fail in your long term commitment. Fine line difference but it makes a hell lot of difference.So, the crux of the matter is that one needs to have the patience to pursue the dream. Instant decision and execution is the bubble game and is not meant for serious business-like career or relation.Happy dating with your dreams. Happy committed life.last_img read more

LJUBOMIR VRANJES: Shot-Clock should be given a chance

first_img1 Comment Related Items:f4, Flensburg, handball, host, shot clock in handball, Skopje Handball in Germany is played by 750.000 people France beat Norway with Pardin&Mahe in main role! 1 Comment ShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsLjubomir Vranješ, one of the greatest handball experts in the world, is heading towards a big dream with team which he has ended his great playing and started great coaching career – Flensburg. Handball town on German-Danish boarder has a huge wish to see their team on their first ever F4! All of the teams from top of Bundesliga, except for one from „Flens Arena“ have already been there, so there isn’t need for much talking about how Andersson, Eggert, Mogensen & co want to get their hands of „Lanxess Arena“. First question we have asked Ljubo was if he was satisfied with the draw and what team he’s preparing for Vardar:– I am satisfied, if you can tell it that way. I think Vardar’s satisfied too. We could have easily get Kiel, Barcelona or Veszprem. All of these matches will be hard, and battle will last for whole 120 minutes… those were the words of Vranješ before commenting Vardar’s spectacular triumph over HSV:– I have told my players before the match that Vardar can win in Hamburg, but still it came as big surprise for all. Vardar has player good and intelligent handball.From position of Macedonian team, many people appreciate that Flenburg will come to „Boris Trajkovski“ hall for returning match…– I’m fine with whoever is host first. You simply have to play 120 minutes of good handall in order to reach Cologne.Tough matches are ahead of German team – struggle for trophies both in Bundesliga and in EHC Champions League.– We’re playing F4 Bundesliga cup match against Rhein Neckar Lowen next week, but we got used to that tempo. Players have been in that rhythm for years. Of course, we have to play top level matches each three days, and that comes as a bit of concern for players because of injuries, but also for me – I need to do flawless calculations time and time again.Concerning our constation that Macedonia is in enormous handball euphoria, great coach replies…– Well, that’s normal. They should be euphoric. Three teams from Skopje on top, it’s incredible.SHOT-CLOCK SHOULD BE GIVEN A CHANCE „Hot“ topic in handball world lately is the initiative to limit the attacks timely. Vranješ has an opinion…– Shot-clock is something that could be tried. We need to see what it really means for handball. I’m sure that there would be some positive sides to it – it would help us to know how much time we’ve got left for the attack. It would speed up the game, which would lead to increasing amount of technical errors, which again leads to question – is that good? It would be harder to do the substitutions and handball itself would change tactically. Shot-clock would make bigger effect than we think. And he adds…– It all depends on the rules. How many times am I allowed to hit the defense block and continue to play? If I pass the ball to the line player two seconds before the end of the attack and it deflects from leg of defensive player, does it mean that I get to do a brand new attack with clock being reset? Depending on the rules, the referees would have different problems – Vranješ concludes.

German leaders warn coalition talks might need more time

first_imgLeaders of Germany’s two big parties warned ahead of key talks over a coalition agreement that negotiations may not be concluded by the end of Sunday’s self-imposed deadline.The conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and center-left Social Democratic Party (SPD) had set themselves a target for wrapping up talks to renew the so-called grand coalition that has governed Germany since 2013.“It’s not yet possible to say how long [the talks] will last — we did good groundwork yesterday but there are still important issues that need to be resolved,” Chancellor Angela Merkel said Sunday, according to Reuters. “This will certainly be a very, very intense day of negotiations today,” SPD Leader Martin Schulz said ahead of talks at his party’s headquarters in Berlin, according to Die Welt. “I would like to tell you that this is the last day of negotiations, but we will see that later in the day.”After the parties forged an agreement on energy and agriculture on Saturday, Schulz said key social issues remain unresolved, including on fixed-term work contracts and health care provisions. The SPD’s 440,000 membership will need to approve any deal agreed between the leaders.On Friday, Horst Seehofer, the leader of CDU sister party the Christian Social Union, said he expected talks to be concluded no later than Sunday.“I think we’ll get this done in the coming days,” Seehofer told reporters on arrival for negotiations on Friday, Reuters reported. “So far, there is no reason to expect we will need longer than Sunday.”More than four months have passed since last September’s national election, with earlier talks over an alternative coalition deal between the CDU, liberal Free Democratic Party and the Greens falling through last year.

N.C. Emergency Agencies Provide Mutual Aid

first_imgStation 1 is located downtown on Bridges Street, and Station 2 is in a more central location of town on U.S. 70 near 35th Street. In conjunction with the renovations to the building for the station, the town made site enhancements including repaving the parking area, improving drainage and installing a flag pole. The Wildwood department, which is located within the city limits, was also able to hook up to town water and sewer. “They had the building we needed, and they needed improvements we could provide, so our (town) board and their board (of directors) came up with this plan,” City Manager Randy Martin said. The new station is strategically located to minimize response time for fire and emergency medical calls in the rapidly growing western sector of the town’s jurisdiction. “The even distribution of service — particularly having an EMS unit responding at both ends of town — is beneficial,” he said. The newly renovated facility being used by the town sits on property owned by the Wildwood Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department. Through a 20-year lease agreement, the two departments that have often stepped up to help each other respond to fire and rescue calls have now come together to help themselves. Under the plan, the town renovated a structure that Wildwood was primarily using for storage. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Monday to celebrate the project and publicly thank the Wildwood department for its cooperation. Under the terms of the lease, site and utility improvements were funded by Morehead City, and the cost will offset rent payments in the early years of the lease, Martin said.Contact staff writer Jannette Pippin at [email protected] or 252-808-2275. Martin said the new station also allows for an EMS unit, putting one at each side of town. Oct. 2–MOREHEAD CITY — Morehead City Fire and EMS Station 3 is an example of mutual aid of a different sort. The arrangement gives Morehead City a station at the west end of town, and the site and utility improvements provided by the town benefit Wildwood, which operates its station at the same site. “Station 2 was built in 1956, so there has been tremendous change since then,” Lail said. Morehead City has been providing fire and emergency medical services from the new station since June, but it was only recently that all project elements were completed. Two of the building’s six bays were converted to living quarters; one houses a town ambulance and another houses a fire truck. The remaining two are for continued use by the Wildwood department, Lail said. “It’s a great partnership and a win-win for both departments,” Morehead City Fire Chief Wes Lail said prior to the ceremony. The fire and EMS improvements also satisfy state regulatory agency criteria necessary to retain and eventually improve the city’s fire insurance rating, Martin said.last_img read more


Scientists Create First Ever Lab-Grown Meat in Space Lab 248 Miles From Earth

first_imgWithin the framework of this experiment on the Russian segment of the ISS, a successful proof of concept has been established in assembling a small-scale muscle tissue in a 3D bioprinter developed by 3D Bioprinting Solutions, under micro-gravity conditions. This cutting-edge research in some of the most extreme environments imaginable, serves as an essential growth indicator of sustainable food production methods that don’t exacerbate land waste, water waste, and pollution. These methods are also aimed at feeding the rapidly growing population, predicted to reach 10 billion individuals by 2050.RELATED: Scientists Detect Tone Pattern in the Ringing of a Newborn Black Hole for the First Time, Proving Einstein Right AgainThrough an international collaboration set to reach new heights with 3D Bioprinting Solutions, Meal Source Technologies, and Finless Foods— Aleph Farms, co-founded with the food-tech incubator The Kitchen, and Professort Shulamit Levenberg of the Technion university, is making a significant progress toward fulfilling its promise: to enable on Earth unconditional access to safe and nutritious meat anytime, anywhere, while using minimal resources.In an historic report published on the 10th of September 2019, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, established by the United Nations, has emphasized the integral contribution of the conventional animal farming methods on climate change, creating “a challenging situation worse and undermining food security.” The 107 authors who contributed to the report have shed light on climate change effects on land, especially desertification, land degradation, and diminishing availability of food supplies.“In space, we don’t have 10,000 or 15,000 liters (4,000 gallons) of water available to produce one kilogram (2.205 pound) of beef,” says Didier Toubia, co-founder and CEO of Aleph Farms.LOOK: This is the First Ever Image of a Black Hole and Scientists Are Calling It a ‘Dream Come True’“This joint experiment marks a significant first step toward achieving our vision to ensure food security for generations to come, while preserving our natural resources.Jonathan Berger, who is CEO of the mission’s partnering organization The Kitchen, added: “The mission of providing access to high-quality nutrition anytime, anywhere in a sustainable way is an increasing challenge for all humans. On Earth or up above, we count on innovators like Aleph Farms to take the initiative to provide solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems, such as the climate crisis.”(WATCH the news coverage below) – Photo by NASAFeed Your Friends Some Positivity By Sharing The Good News To Social Media…AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMore AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreThis week, a food company announced that they have successfully taken “one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind” in producing lab-grown meat in space.Aleph Farms, an Israeli food company that grows cultivated beef steaks, says that they managed to grow the material aboard the International Space Station 248 miles (339 kilometers) away from any natural resources.Aleph Farms’ production method of cultivated beef steaks relies on mimicking a natural process of muscle-tissue regeneration occurring inside the cow’s body, but under controlled conditions.last_img read more


Glee Club features alumni in reunion concert

first_imgBrian Raab Glee Club director Daniel Stowe conducts the group in a rehearsal.Glee Club is a selective 75-person men’s chorus, Raab said. The group rehearses four days a week and has two regular-season performances per semester, he said. He said it also performs before home games during the football season.Though it is only a few weeks into the season, Raab said he is confident the new Glee Club “rookies” will perform well.“They’ll be surrounded by guys who know their part,” he said. “They sit between two Glee Club guys who know what they’re doing.”Recent alumnus Christianos Burlotos, who graduated in 2018, said he would tell new members to “embrace the community of [Glee Club].” He said he believes it is one of the tightest communities at Notre Dame and new members should appreciate that.Junior Tim Jacklich, another member of Glee Club, said the club is a big time commitment, but also a wonderful opportunity.“Buy into the club,” he said.Raab said some of the alumni traveling in for the weekend graduated as early as the 1960s.Sophomore Zach Pearson, also in Glee Club, said he has been busy preparing for several months in his role as the 2018 reunion commissioner.“It started fairly relaxed, and then things obviously picked up,” he said.Current Glee Club members will open the concert, then be joined by alumni for the second part of the performance, Jacklich said. Burlotos said the alumni have very little time to prepare for the event.“You come back, they throw you a binder and after an hour-and-a-half rehearsal you have a concert,” he said.Jacklich said there are a number of pieces Glee Club has been singing for decades.“The cool thing for all of us current clubers is getting to see which pieces are really well-known in the club,” he said.Burlotos said some retired pieces the club has performed in the past will be featured in Friday’s concert.“Some of the classics we’re singing, I’ve never even sang,” he said.The concert will also feature some current Glee members’ favorites. Raab said his favorite piece out of the concert’s selection is “The Water is Wide,” arranged by Glee Club alumnus Patrick Dupre Quigley.“I’m a sucker for ballads,” Raab said.Pearson said the Glee Club alumnus singing the solo for the concert gave its premiere performance in the early 2000s.For Glee Club alumni returning to campus, Burlotos said, their experience will be far different from other alumni simply returning for a football game.“The community will continue to last in that way,” he said.Pearson said singing the Alma Mater and Victory March on his first day in the club is one of his favorite memories.“It was my dream to join the Glee Club since when I first wanted to apply to Notre Dame,” he said.Looking ahead towards his own graduation, Jacklich said he will never forget his time in Glee Club.“It’ll certainly be a hard goodbye, but I’m taking a lot with me,” he said.Burlotos said he is sure that although the club will change with time, it will never stray far from its roots.“There are always those few songs we come back to,” he said.Pearson said he also believes the club will keep many of its traditions and repertoire for years to come.“I don’t think it’ll change that much at all,” he said. “We’re over 100 years old. The stuff that’s really good has stuck, and it’s not going to go anywhere.”Tags: Alumni, Concert, Glee Club, Reunion Senior Brian Raab, president of Glee Club, said joining the Glee Club became the cornerstone of his college life.“Without Glee Club, I don’t even know what my college experience would have been like,” he said.This weekend, club alumni of all ages have a chance to relive that experience. Over 200 Glee Club alumni will be visiting Notre Dame’s campus this Friday to join in the Glee Club Reunion Concert under director Daniel Stowe. The concert will be in Leighton Concert Hall at 8 p.m. and is celebrating the club’s 103rd year. Tickets can be purchased at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center website.last_img read more


Jenkins appoints new dean of architecture

first_imgStefanos Polyzoides was appointed to be the new dean of the University’s School of Architecture by University President Fr. John Jenkins effective July 1, a University press release announced Tuesday.Polyzoides is currently co-founder of the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) and a partner in Moule & Polyzoides Architects and Urbanists, which has completed more than 700 projects since 1990.“Stefanos brings to Notre Dame an international reputation for architectural work informed by tradition and moral purpose,” Jenkins said in the release. “He brings together design, the realities of urban living and sustainable development to produce buildings that serve communities and humanity. His leadership will enrich our School of Architecture.”Along with several colleagues, Polyzoides developed a set of standards for community land use and architectural planning known as the Ahwahnee Principles in 1991.“The 15 principles — which stress walkability, sustainability, diversity and neighborhood and district design — laid the groundwork for the 1993 founding of the CNU, which today includes more than 3,000 members who promote integrated development through education, legislation and planning,” the release said.Earning his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in architecture from Princeton University, Polyzoides has lived in Southern California since 1973. He is a registered architect in California, Arizona, New Mexico, Florida and Texas.Polyzoides said he is deeply honored to be serving as the next dean in the School of Architecture.“In recent years, I have come to believe that this may well be the single institution in our country that prepares its students to address the diverse acute needs of our time,”Polyzoides said.  “Not satisfied with teaching skills alone, the school professes an architecture and urbanism that is centered on human values, personal responsibility and community contribution.”Tags: architecture, School of Architecture, University President Fr.

Unemployment rate down to 3.1 percent, but labor force falls

first_imgVermont Business Magazine All three broad-based measures fell in July’s unemployment report, as the number of those looking for work declined in Vermont, but so too did the labor force and total employed, both for the month and year-to-year. The Vermont Department of Labor announced today that the seasonally-adjusted statewide unemployment rate for July was 3.1 percent. This reflects a decline of one tenth of one percentage point from the revised June rate (3.2 percent). The national rate in July was 4.3 percent. As of the prior month’s preliminary data, the Burlington-South Burlington Metropolitan NECTA was tied for the thirteenth lowest unemployment rate in the country for all metropolitan areas at 2.6 percent (not-seasonally-adjusted). Overall, Vermont’s unemployment rate was tied for the tenth lowest in the country for the same time period.“Job gains in professional and business services, education and health care, and leisure and hospitality drive the current employment outlook in Vermont,” said Lindsay Kurrle, Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor. “Despite some over the year losses in construction and manufacturing employment, we see steady job growth and low unemployment continuing throughout 2017 as the private sector continues to propel economic growth in the State of Vermont.”The Vermont seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate declined one tenth of one percentage point in July to a statewide average of 3.1 percent. The comparable United States rate is 4.3 percent which experienced a one-tenth of one percentage point decrease from the revised June estimate. The seasonally-adjusted Vermont data for July show the Vermont civilian labor force decreased by 950 from the prior month’s revised estimate. The number of employed decreased by 700 and the number of unemployed decreased by 250. None of the changes were statistically significant in the seasonally-adjusted series. The July unemployment rates for Vermont’s 17 labor market areas ranged from 2.4 percent in White River Junction to 4.4 percent in Bennington and Derby (note: local labor market area unemployment rates are not seasonally-adjusted). For comparison, the July unadjusted unemployment rate for Vermont was 3.0 percent which reflects a decrease of one-tenth of one percentage point from the revised unadjusted June level and a decrease of four-tenths of one percentage point from a year ago.Not-Seasonally-Adjusted The preliminary ‘not-seasonally-adjusted’ jobs estimates for July show a decrease of 3,300 jobs when compared to the revised June numbers. There was an increase of 200 jobs between the preliminary and the revised June estimates due to the inclusion of more data. The monthly increase seen in the July numbers was primarily attributable to seasonal movements in local government education. The broader economic trends can be detected by focusing on the over-the-year changes in this data series. As detailed in the preliminary ‘not-seasonally-adjusted’ July data, Total Private industries have increased by 2,800 jobs (1.1 percent) and Government (including public education) employment has decreased by 1,600 jobs (-3.3 percent) in the past year. Seasonally-Adjusted The seasonally-adjusted data for July reports an increase of 1,700 jobs from the revised June data. As with the ‘not-seasonally-adjusted’ data, this over-the-month change is from the revised June numbers which experienced an increase of 200 jobs from the preliminary estimates. The seasonally-adjusted over-the-month changes in July were mixed at the sub-sector level. Those with a notable percent increase include: Leisure and Hospitality (+1,000 jobs or +2.7%) and Education and Health Services (+1,200 jobs or +1.8%). Sectors with a notable percent decrease include: Mining, Logging and Construction (-600 jobs or -3.7%) and Other Services (-200 jobs or -1.8%).last_img read more
