Chinese mothers donate necessities to orphanages in Zimbabwe

first_imgZimbabwe’s 1.8 million orphans are proving to be a challenge to cater for. This especially as the number keeps rising due to poverty and deaths related to HIV and AIDS. But this past weekend a group of Chinese mothers visited orphanages there and donated necessities in a bid to alleviate the situation.The plight of Orphans in Zimbabwe is one that is worrying many, the numbers of orphans which have kept growing now stand at about 1.8 million, which proves to be quite hard to provide for their food shelter and other basic necessities. That’s why a new initiative dubbed the Orphan Sunday saw many Chinese mothers come to the aid of Orphanages in Zimbabwe.“We found that the conditions of the orphanage there were very tough. The kids cannot get money for studying as a result teachers cannot get salaries. After that the loving mothers got together and discussed how we can help them. Especially on how we can help the kids get education. I think this is very important because these kids are the future of the nation.” said Peng Yan, organizer of Loving MothersPoverty and a rise in deaths related to HIV and AIDS have been blamed for the increasing number of Orphans in Zimbabwe. And though researchers claim that orphanages may be the worst possible care option for children, concern is whether there are any other viable and sustainable options to alleviate the situation.last_img read more

T&T clubs meet for CFU title

first_img Brilliant free kick Importantly, both winners qualified for the 2016-17 CONCACAF Champions League as two of the three Caribbean slots allowed. The third spot will be filled by the winners of today’s third place playoff between Arnett Gardens and Don Bosco. In Friday’s opening game, W Connection grabbed the lead as early as the second minute when Alvin Jones scored with a brilliant free kick from just outside the box. Arnett Gardens missed a couple of chance to equalise and were made to pay for their wastefulness as Shahdon Winchester doubled W Connection’s lead on the stroke of half-time after being set up by Jamol Williams. The second half was fairly evenly contested but Arnett failed to find the two important goals to keep the semi-final alive. In the second game of the night, neither team could find the decisive goal in regular time, as they battled a heavy downpour, and the contest only came alive early in extra time. Central FC snatched the lead in the 93rd minute through Sean Silva’s free kick but his strike was cancelled out when Don Bosco earned a penalty and Kerlins Georges converted in the 104th minute. PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (CMC): Title-holders Central FC and last year’s losing finalists, W Connection, will clash again in today’s final of the Caribbean Football Union Club Championship, after posting contrasting wins in the semi-finals here Friday night.

Kernals on the Cob (A Crop Tour Parody)

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Get ready for this year’s I-75/I-71 Ohio Crop Tour, presented by AgroLiquid, by checking out this crop tour parody song written by Matt Reese and Ty Higgins!Lyrics: Every year we hit the road to look at lots of crops Husking ears and counting pods At every single stop If there is mud caked on our boots It’s never quite as fun But rain or shine we’ll be just fine And work til the jobs done.Counting kernals on the cob How’d I get this crazy job? Hit the road just before dawn Spend the day in the hot sun Looking for insects and different kinds of Leaf disease. I’ll sample the corn, cause I have to pee.We stop for doughnuts and ice cream A few times along the way Swapping tall tales of short corn We saw throughout the day We crisscross the interstate Back roads are all we drive Sure hope Bart fixed those truck breaks So we make it back alive.Hours in the crop tour van Sitting by a sweaty man Beans and corn and corn and beans Are the only things I’ve seen Found some white mold and some nitrogen deficiency Hey I’ll check the corn, I have to pee No I mean it guys I do have to peelast_img read more

Trading Up

first_imgThe technological tools often make it easy to trade down to more impersonal, more transactional mediums. But you don’t have to trade down; you can just as easily trade up to more personal, more value-creating mediums. And by doing so, you can differentiate yourself and create deeper relationships.Email to Phone: Trade the next email you are going to send for a phone call. Instead of writing a note that is going to get lost in a sea of distractions, pick up the phone and make it personal. As small as this might seem, it is a major upgrade in communication. You can engage in a dialogue, and you can listen to your client.Phone to Face-to-Face: Trade the next phone call you are going to make for a face-to-face visit with your dream client. Instead of discussing whatever it is you need to discuss over the phone, have that discussion in person. Make your presence felt. Showing up demonstrates a greater commitment on your part. It says that you believe your client is worth the investment of time.Face-to-Face to Lunch: Trade the next face-to-face visit you are going to have for a working lunch or dinner. Go offsite, get away from the distractions, and spend time getting to know the person you are working with. Make it even more personal. The less formal the meeting, the more you can allow your client to open up and share more about themselves and their needs. This deepens your understanding, it deepens your relationship.Lunch to Working Group Meeting: Trade the next lunch you are going to have for a working lunch session for your team and your client’s team. You bring the food, and with it bring three or four big issues you can whiteboard together with your teams. Create greater value by working on big issues and problems. The time you spend working on issues together strengthens the bonds between your teams, and it helps demonstrate your commitment to making improvements.When the outcome you need is important (and if you are communicating with your client or dream client, it is), trade up to the most effective communication medium available.
