Should you be a sole trader or a limited company? Starting a business is a tough process. Maybe you decided to be a sole trader as there was less formality and paper work involved in the set up. The decision on your appropriate business structure is not an easy one - it certainly isn't a 'one size fits all' answer. Your personal circumstances should determine your choice and only you can decide the appropriate structure. Domestic Violence Often Triggered by Jealousy Episodes of domestic violence are often triggered by sexual jealousy and accusations of infidelity, according to researchers who analyzed jailhouse calls between abusers and their victims. Researchers at Ohio State University listened to the phone conversations between 17 heterosexual couples, in which the man was locked up in a Washington state facility for felony-level domestic violence. The victims had suffered serious injuries during the attacks, including head trauma, bite wounds, strangulation and, in two cases, lost pregnancy, the researchers said. "What we were looking for was the immediate precursor — what was the one thing that happened right before the violence that was the catalyst," lead author of the study, Julianna Nemeth, said in a statement.
Technology Timesavers for Teachers - myTeachersLounge Teachers today are fortunate to have access to technological tools that make our jobs easier and minimize the paperwork involved in educating our students.

Australian HIV-killing condom available in months Australian researchers have developed a virus-killing condom, and recent government approval means it's one step closer to hitting the market. Vivagel is a newly developed antiviral compound that has been shown to disable 99.9 percent of HIV, herpes, and other sexually transmitted viruses in laboratory tests. Developed by Australian biotech firm Starpharma, the gel has been incorporated into condoms made by Ansell, the world’s second largest condom manufacturer, to help stem the spread of these viruses. As reported by Michael Janda at ABC News, these special virus-killing condoms have now received Conformity Assessment Certification from Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), which means they should be available to consumers in Australia within months.
Craft, DIY, Art, and Beauty: Detailed Self-Portrait DIY Every couple of years, in some medium, I do a self-portrait. It's interesting to go back through them and reflect. Here's how I did mine this year. It's an Indian ink silouette filled with everything that makes me...well...me. A level Business Studies - Some great lessons : Teaching & Resources : EBEA - Economics, Business and Enterprise Association A level Business Studies - Some great lessons At the end of the year, it is interesting to ask the students which lessons they still remember. The answer, of course, is the 'special lessons' that appealed to their emotions and sense of personal identity. In The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell (2000) explains the idea of 'stickiness' – the distinctive ingredient in a message that makes it 'stick' to its recipients. Teachers can give concepts that 'emotional velcro' through simulations, role play and games, making sure that what is learned does not dissolve – or disappear into the teenage 'trash-can' of unwanted information! Meanwhile, working through a challenge as a group and using intellect and emotions together in uncovering a concept, can lead to much deeper understanding with a far greater sense of ownership.
