What do men benefit from a long distance relationship?

Filed in The Category Relationships

My ex boyfriend- ( were in a long distance relationship) wants to work things out. In time I may have the opporunity to move to london where he resides..after my last semester of grad school.

This weekend he informed me that he misses me and wants to work things out. We have been broken up for about 2 months. I informed him that I started dating someone. This guy is very nice but to be honest Im not 100 percent over my ex…but right now I dont know where my ex is coming from, He was upset that I was dating someone else… but the reason we broke up because the fact he didnt know if he wanted to spend the holidays with him. Which hurt me greatly.

Now the holidays are over…he wants to do long distance again..it doesnt make since.

I ponder myself if there was someone else…but he and his sister ensure me there wasnt.

What to do?

I am reading a home office but do not know how to reference in my references for my assignment?

Filed in The Category Home Office

is a circular a statutory instrument or is it just an official publication? im confused and need help. It the Home Office Circular 017 / 2008
The Duties And Powers Of The Police Under The Children Act 1989 but how do i write this in my references/appendix?

Answer by chocolaterain
Weeelll it depends which referencing system you have been asked to use. We use the harvard referencing one, and for this here is an example:
in the actual text itself, you would put
“Cormack (1994, pp.32-33) states that ‘when writing for a professional readership, writers invariably make reference to already published works’.”

and then at the end of the article you would have a bibliography, where you put the reference source in full:

Use the title page, not the book cover, for the reference details. The required elements for a book reference are:

Author, Initials/First name., Year. Title of book. Edition. Place of publication: Publisher.
Redman, P., 2006. Good essay writing: a social sciences guide. 3rd ed.
London: Open University in assoc. with Sage.
Baron, David P., 2008. Business and the organisation. 6th ed.
Chester (CT): Pearson.
Please note
Author: Surname with capital first letter and followed by a comma.
Initials: In capitals with full-stop after each and comma after full-stop of last initial.
Year: Publication year (not printing or impression) followed by full-stop.
Title: Full title of book/thesis/dissertation in italics with capitalization of first word and proper nouns only. Followed by full-stop unless there is a sub-title.
Sub-title: Follows a colon at end of full title, no capitalization unless proper nouns.
Follow by full-stop.

Learn a New Craft

Filed in The Category Arts and Crafts

When you see your friend wearing a necklace she has made herself or you see someone who has decorated her house with unique handcrafted items, you are jealous. However you think you cannot do so as you never done any such thing in the past. WRONG!

I am sure you have done some crafts at some point in your life. You may have made paper airplanes in school. You may have painted. You may have created decorations for the Christmas tree or Easter or some other occasion. You may have made a dress or a mask for Halloween. You decorated cookies for your child’s bake sale. All this qualifies as craft.

Life is busy and you probably have not practiced any craft for a long time. You think do not have time to learn a new craft. However, there are many good reasons why you should learn one:

- Crafting is a great stress buster. It engages your mind and takes it away from the problems of daily grind. It gives you an opportunity to channel your excess energy and help you relax. It will allow you to keep aside some time for yourself.

- Get your creative juices flowing. Everybody is born with some amount of creativity. It is a matter of cultivating it. As you master the skill and technique of your chosen craft, you will get more innovative. You will conceive and create new designs and execute complex ideas. This will enhance your creativity. You will be able to look at problems in your daily life with a new perspective and often find innovative solutions.

- Improve your self-esteem. You will create something new and unique out of some unfinished materials like wood or clay or glass with your own hands. This will give you a sense of accomplishment and pride in your skills. You would see an improvement in your self-confidence in a matter of short time.

- Save Money. Learning a craft will enable you to make gift items for family and friends economically. They will also appreciate a unique gift, made especially for them. Depending on your craft, you may be able to decorate your home on a strict budget

- Make money with your craft. As you improve at your craft, you will be able to sell your craft items and make money. You will get an opportunity to make a full-time or part time income with your handmade crafts.

Crafting requires a creative process as well as a skill. Not everybody likes everything. You may have to try multiple crafts to figure out the one you like. Start with a craft that you may have been exposed to already or one you thought you would like to learn sometime. If nothing comes to mind, talk to your spouse or your best friend. If they have a favorite craft you may want to learn a similar craft or complementary craft. This will give you an opportunity to spend more time with them as well as learn a craft. Another option would be taking a couple of classes for different crafts. Select two or three crafts that you think you would like. Take classes at the local community college or adult learning center. This will help you determine if you like to craft and learn its basic techniques.

Do not learn a craft just to make money. Learn it only if you enjoy doing it. If you have fun with your craft, you will create beautiful pieces that will give you and others pleasure.

Filed in The Category Photography

i’m doing an art essay based on fashion photography and fashion illustration but i need an angle to base the essay on, any ideas? for example i could do the history of fashion photography, or how photography took over fashion illustration. do either of those sound ok?

Answer by Jay
I think I like how photography took over fashion illustration. That sounds really good to me. And it is so true also.

Answer by *Happy Girl*
The history of fashion photography would probably be the easiest and have the most sources.

Answer by :( mj
what about colour in fashion?
I think that history of fashion would be good as you could take photographs of different eras, which would be good :)

Will my daughter miss out if she dosnt go to nursery before she is 3?

Filed in The Category Nursery Design

Im in the UK. My daughter is 10 months and Im a full time mum, my husbands wage is just enough so I dont have to go to work and can stay at home and look after my daughter. Im going to start taking her to a toddlers group soon but Im worried she will miss out if she dosnt go to nursery. We cant afford to send her at all so she will have to wait till she is 3 and can use the 15 hrs she will get subsidised by the government. Will this be ok?

Answer by Jasmine
not really but it helps the kid get used to life away from home. they dont really learn anything in nursery just making friends but she can pick that up later

Answer by peacebuffalo
Nursery wasn’t around until Mom’s started looking to work.

My granddaughter went to Nursery, against my wishes, from 2 mos-18 mos. She became good with change, and excelled in gross and fine motor skills, BUT she got sick on a regular basis, didn’t readily trust her parents, and her Speech was delayed.

She’s been out of nursery for 6 mos now. Her mom is flourishing, and she is starting to use words. As long as your daughter is given the opportunity to play with others in her age group, even once a week she’ll be fine.

Answer by Chibi_Osaka
Unless there’s a law saying that she has to go, it won’t hurt her to miss out. You can teach her and look anfter her just like any daycare or nusery. I’m not planning to put ANY of my kids in one EVER they will go to school though. But the deal is, I’ve seen other kids not go and they’re just as smart. Don’t worry about it.

How do i become a health and social care teacher?

Filed in The Category School Tips

Hi, can anyone help me. I would like to become a health and social teacher, although I do not know where to start. I have just started my NVQ 2 in health and social care and plan on doing my level 3. Would a PGCE allow me to teach the subject anywhere, college or schools? I have no other relevant qualifications. Anyone got any helpful tips or advice?

Answer by Nicnic
Yes a PGCE will allow you to teach anywhere, however you must complete a degree first.

To teach at an FE college, the rules are slightly different but you would really struggle (almost impossible) to get a job without a degree and they would expect you to have some form of teaching qualification, either PCSE or another form of qualified teacher status (QTS).

You can be employed on a short term basis without QTS but the pay is less as is job stability obviously.

Answer by Anon
I’m not sure. You would probably be teaching in college. Experience in the field of Health and Social Care would certainly be valuable. Also, speak to your own teacher and find out how they got there. I’m not sure you can teach Health and Social Care in secondary schools without another subject because frankly, in secondary.. Very few kids choose Health and Social Care so employing you full time to teach it would not be economically viable for the school.

Some school will employ unqualified teachers as instructors but that’s unlikely.

im really into photography, but i dont have decent camera. what is a really good starter dslr camera?

Filed in The Category Photography

ive been into photography for years and years. all sorts really, not any particular subject. but i really want a good digital slr camera, but nothing too complicated for my first one, up until now i have just been using various easy digital cameras, nothing fancy at all. any recomendations for a new dslr user?
id like to have a good optical zoom facility, and good focus options, manual preffered.

Answer by Rich
Go with Nikon D60 with the kit lens, because it included the 18-55mm VR lens, and the D60 offer lots of function included the video still image*can make video out it * directly.

Answer by TallPaul
dSLRs usually come with changeable lenses, and more users options that you never knew you needed.

I’m the proud owner of an Olympus E-510 (CCD image stabiliser, on-screen “Live View” etc etc) which I can thoroughly recommend.

Others will thumbs-down me and recommend something different. Such is life.

Edit to Autumn (below):
You are obviously confused about optical zoom (done with lenses) and digital zoom (which stretches the pixels).

Answer by autumn.
hmm im not sure if it’s the nixon or nikon. i get confused, but they have the whole capability of being able to use any lens ever created under that brand.

also not long ago i saw a K10D or something, which was reasonably priced, could be manual or automatic and the whole stabilizing thing.

why would you want optical zoom? it can create pixelation.

maybe you’d want to try with a full manual slr and just get it developed at the chemist.

all you really need to learn is the aperture and shutter speed times and maybe a few things about ISO or depth of field and you’d be fine.

When do you put Christmas decorations up?

Filed in The Category Christmas

I’ve seen so many people getting Christmas decorations up, I think it’s way too early!

7-10 days before Christmas is acceptable, in my opinion.

Me and my mum have had issues getting them up over recent years anyway, as we have cats and they just attack anything dangling.

My mum keeps saying she doesn’t want a tree up this year because it will be too much of a pain in the butt if the cats don’t leave it alone. As much as I don’t think decorations should go up early, I’d be sad if we had nothing at all.

BQ: What’s your favourite thing about the Christmas holiday period?

Answer by Kalla
After Thanksgiving
BQ: The music

Answer by Jake
We usually do only a week before Christmas, however we started listening to Christmas songs in October. Lol.

My favorite thing about Christmas?- Nothing by itself is that great. it is everything combined that makes it great; the snow, but warm hearts, the lights and hot chocolate, the music and caroling, the snowflake designs on store windows, winter clothing with gloves and ear-muffs, childrens’ smiles when they sit on Santa’s lap in the mall, the nostalgic feeling of the season itself. It all comes together to make the best time of the year- Christmas.

Answer by Fluorescent Adolescent ? ?
First week of December.

BQ: Presents and seeing family.
