New Year’s resolutions: how to carry them out without losing motivation within a few weeks

first_imgImage: iStock With each new year that comes in we always try to find new goals and objectives to meet. Some of them, among the most common, are getting fit, quitting smoking, learning a new language or planning a great trip with our partner or friends. Unfortunately, in many cases these purposes fall in a broken bag within a few weeks. But, is there a trick to fulfill them and not be hell? Setting short-term goals will make us see progress much betterDon’t get obsessed with stumbling blocks, but learn from themcenter_img Some of the mentioned goals, the most popular, are frankly simple to accomplish. It is about creating small habits in our day to day, because we must remember that it is not a sprint, but a background race. Even with that data and it is worth remembering from time to time, the trick to achieve our goals at the beginning of the year is simpler than you can imagine.As highlighted by SciShow, to make the purposes more bearable we just have to think about specific goals with a specific date. That is to say, ‘I am going to propose to lose 10 kg of weight by May 17’. Why do it this way and not throughout the year? The reason is very simple. If we choose this method it will be much easier to see our progress. Another factor that influences is to create feasible purpose within reason. Short-term dates are perfect to see changes and progress along the way. Do not forget that you do not have to obsess over obstacles in progress. Learn from them and use them to achieve that motivational thrust that we all need from time to time.last_img read more

Supreme Court conducts refresher mediation training

first_imgThe Supreme Court along with the Judicial Reform and Institutional Strengthening (JURIST) Project is currently in the process of conducting a refresher training mediation workshops in Berbice, Region Six and Georgetown, Region Four.The two-day workshop in Georgetown opened on Wednesday at the Marriot Hotel while the Berbice workshop concluded on Tuesday at the Little Rock Suites in New Amsterdam.The Judicial Reform and Institutional Strengthening (JURIST) Project is a five-year regional Caribbean judicial reform initiative funded under an arrangement with the Government of Canada. The Project is being implemented on behalf of GlobalA section of the gathering at the mediation refresher course in BerbiceAffairs Canada (GAC) and the Conference of Heads of Judiciary of CARICOM (the Conference), by the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), which was appointed by the Conference as its Regional Executing Agency (REA). The Project is working with judiciaries in the region to support their own efforts to improve court administration and strengthen the ability of the courts and the judiciary to resolve cases efficiently and fairly.In New Amsterdam, it was the first refresher training in Berbice since the first grout of mediators was trained in 2011.Mediation in Berbice has been almost non-existent. That is according to Director of Mediation Services International Attorney at Law Jamela Ali. Speaking at the opening of the workshop in New Amsterdam she said in Berbice mediators have not been given the opportunity to utilize their skills.She noted that the Berbice Mediation Centre is underutilised.“Since interest in mediation in Berbice has been low key, it is not surprising that in 2018, the numbers of mediators have dwindled a bit, for various reasons. But What is of significance is that Mediation seems not to have been developed or encouraged in Berbice and Mediators not given much Opportunities to utilize their skills acquired since 2011. In this regard, It is our objective that at the end of the session tomorrow, the mediation skills of the participants would have been strengthened and sharpened, there will be a renewed interest for mediation in this beautiful County of Berbice so that Berbicians can utilize the newly constructed Berbice Mediation’ Centre and benefit from your skill,” she said.Mediation, as used in law, is a form of alternative dispute resolution or a way of resolving disputes between two or more parties with concrete effects. Typically, a third party, the mediator assists the parties to negotiate a settlement.Ali said while the need exists greatly in Berbice for retraining of mediators, their counterparts in Georgetown are no less in need of such training.Meanwhile, Project Director of the Judicial Reform and Institutional Strengthen (JURIST) Project Gloria Richards Johnson noted that the training is a milestone in the life of JURIST. She explained that it is their goal to enhance the capacity of Guyana’s mediators in court-connected mediation.She said they have made great strides thus far and the project has completed several initiatives which include, Guidelines for Sexual Offence Cases; Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity Planning, Training on court administration and adjudication that is gender responsive and Customer focused; Re-engineering of business processes in selected courts to identify backlogs, introduce technology to eliminate backlogs and expedite the process, and undertake training for a more efficient administration.In giving some statistics on the meditation system in Guyana, Solicitor and Mediator Rafina Rahim noted that of 880 cases the court through the trial Judge directed 772 for mediation and of that number 108 matters were settled before actual mediation while 48 of matters successfully mediated where an agreement was reached.However, in 228 matters, the mediation was unsuccessfully and referred to trial. Rahim said some 338 of the matters which were referred to mediation, only some of the issues were resolved and 98 were returned to trial.last_img read more

Timbe vows to bring the shine back at Tusker

first_img0Shares0000New Tusker FC head coach Sam Timbe passes instructions to defender Collins Shivachi during a training session at the Ruaraka Grounds in Nairobi on January 3, 2018. Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULUNAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 3- Known for his tough discipline stand and no nonsense approach in his managerial style, Ugandan tactician Sam Timbe has vowed to bring the shine back at Tusker, a club that struggled to perform last year, finishing the season sixth.Timbe, who formerly coached Sofapaka leading them to the GOtv Shield title in 2014, took charge of his first training session under the morning shiver on Wednesday having signed a two-year pact with the Ruaraka based club. “I feel very happy to be back in Kenya and more so for Tusker to show me confidence and hand me the job. Kenya is like home because there isn’t so much difference with Uganda. I am pleased to join this team and I will do my best to give good services to the club,” the soft spoken but stern coach told Capital Sport.He has already slowly but surely started to imprint changes in the team as early as day one. His first order of business; everyone with fancy hair should shave or comb. No dreads, no fancy styles.Tusker FC players warm down after a training session at the Ruaraka Grounds in Nairobi on January 3, 2018. Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULUThe players discussed in low tones after a lengthy morning session at Ruaraka, each contemplating on a new look after the directive. Marlon Tangauzi, Jackson Macharia and Hashim Ssempala are among the players who will be spotting new looks.Timbe had been touted to take charge of the team after the exit of Francis Kimanzi in 2015, but a collapse in negotiation over financial remuneration saw the deal fall off. However, two years later, the Brewers have their man.In exactly one month, he will take charge of his first match for Tusker when they travel away to Chemelil Sugar and in the next four weeks, his task will be to assess the team and work out a plan of lifting them back to the top.-New squad-Tusker FC’s new striker Timothy Otieno during his first training session at the Ruaraka Grounds in Nairobi on January 3, 2018. Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULUThe coach finds himself in a unique situation at Tusker as the club made away with almost half the squad in a major purge that came off a post-season inquest. He has to build up an entirely new team.“I have no doubt that I can do it because I have been with Atraco, Yanga, Sports Club Villa and Uganda Police and in all those places I have done well and won trophies. It is all about hard work and determination. Right now I have to look at the team and understand them,” the coach said.“A new team needs time to understand. With Sofapaka it was a bit easy because I had players who were a bit experienced and it was easy for them to understand what I wanted. It is my first day with the team so I can’t really assess much, but I promise in due time I will piece things together and we will have a good season,” the Ugandan further stated.Speaking separately, Tusker FC Chief Executive Officer Charles Obiny said the two major reasons they picked out on the Ugandan was because of his discipline standards and past experience.“What we needed more in the team was discipline and with Timbe, that can never be compromised. He also has a very good record with the teams he has previously coached and having worked in Kenya he was never going to be a gamble,” Obiny said.“As a club, we are confident that he is the right man for the job and he will deliver,” he added.New Tusker FC head coach Sam Timbe passes instructions to his players during a training session at the Ruaraka Grounds in Nairobi on January 3, 2018. Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULUThe coach has also received good backing from the players, among them being Eugene Asike with whom he worked with at his time in Sofapaka.“Last season was a tough one for us but we have a new start now with a new coach. We trust that we can put things back in balance. We are assembling a good team and I trust that the new boys who are coming in will be able to step up,” Asike, one of the few remaining figures from last season said.Collins Shivachi, David Okello and Duncan Ochieng also worked with the Ugandan during his time at Sofapaka.Timbe comes into the side with the club’s bosses needing nothing short of silverware as coaches who have failed to reflect results in terms of trophies have seldom spent a second season at Ruaraka.“Four weeks is a short time in football to prepare a team for the new season but it all depends on the attitude, approach and preparation. But I am determined to change the players from participants in the league to competitors,” Timbe assured.New Tusker FC head coach Sam Timbe consults with assistant coach Francis Baraza during a training session at the Ruaraka Grounds in Nairobi on January 3, 2018. Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULUThe club has meanwhile continued to rebuild after massive exits.Among the players who have landed in Ruaraka include striker Timothy Otieno from Gor Mahia, defender Eric Ambunya (Kakamega Homeboyz) youthful midfielder Apollo Otieno (Chemelil Sugar), Western Stima duo of Robert Achema and Kevin Otieno as well as defender Paul Muchika from Muhoroni Youth.Obiny has said they are looking at three more players before closing their transfer dealings to focus on building for the new season. The team has also recalled defender Vincent Omumbo from his loan spell at Western Stima.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Houston – RTE have a serious problem with Harps!

first_imgIt appears that not only do Finn Harps have to take on opposition teams in the Premier Division but also RTE!Harps battle brilliantly last night right up until the final whistle against St Pat’s Athletic at Finn Park.It appeared that the Dubliners were going to take all three points until Sean Houston popped up for an equaliser in the 92nd minute. Not that our national television broadcaster can wait until extra time.The station’s TV reports on RTE One reported however that St Pats had actually won the game 1-0.It’s bad enough facing the opposition but facing the national broadcaster before the final whistle is blown is a bit much for Harps fans to take.Hopefully the matter will be corrected on Soccer Republic.

Half-time: West Ham 0 Chelsea 1

first_imgEden Hazard’s close-range header gave Chelsea a half-time lead.The Premier League leaders played with supreme confidence early on and could easily have gone ahead had 17-goal striker Diego Costa not fired over the bar after a glorious move.West Ham responded, with Cheikhou Kouyate forcing a fine close-range stop from the recalled Thibaut Courtois.But the Blues, with Oscar restored to the side and Kurt Zouma once again playing in midfield, were dominating possession and constantly probing the home defence.And Hazard deservedly headed them in front after a fine counter-attack saw the Belgian head home an enticing Ramires cross.Costa was then denied the chance to get a shot away by Carl Jenkinson when through on goal while the Hammers wasted a wonderful chance when Diafra Sakho’s weak header from six yards was saved by Courtois.Chelsea: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Zouma, Fabregas, Oscar, Hazard, Costa.

Lesser-known Raj Shah, Obama appointee, quits as Pentagon-Silicon Valley liaison

first_imgDuring the Obama years, the highest-profile Indian-American in the administration was Dr. Rajiv ‘Raj’ Shah, administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development.

Shah, who flew largely under the radar for the past two years, recently quit his post as head of the Mountain Valley, California-based Defense Innovation Unit Experimental (DIUx), popularly known as the Pentagon’s innovation shop.Read it at India Abroad Related Itemslast_img read more
