Someone once told me that men marry for love, while women marry for security. Although it isn’t the most romantic thing to hear, on some level, it does make sense. Every time we hear a woman who refuses to date a man who doesn’t earn six figures, we instantly dismiss them as opportunistic or shallow – but the truth is, we actually understand. Some women need to have that kind of security, but we believe that there are more important financial qualities to look out for when looking for a potential partner – and some of those qualities are as follows:

1. Someone Who’s Ambitious

While there’s no need for every woman to date a millionaire, it’s never a bad idea to find someone who isn’t a slacker. A drive to earn is an essential quality to have, especially if you’re looking for someone you’d want to spend your life with. He doesn’t need to have lots of money yet, but wouldn’t it better to find someone who’s determined to chase his dreams?

2. Someone Who Has a Clear Financial Goal

Ambition is just the first half of the equation – he needs to have a clear financial goal as well. Does he know what steps to take to get where he wants to be, career-wise? Or is he someone who sorts of just go with the flow and waits for things to turn out well. When it comes to finances, is he productive or passive?

3. Someone Who Desires to Learn New Things

The best way to avoid a stagnant career is to continue studying. For instance, doctors attend medical conferences because there’s always something new in science – and the same thing is true in every industry. So be sure to date someone who strives to earn more degrees, set new goals and develop bigger dreams. After all, a person who strives hard in his career likely works just as hard in his personal life.


4. Someone Who Won’t Be Jealous of Your Success

Aside from having ambition and a financial goal, your potential partner should be someone who’s happy with your own success. Don’t settle for someone who’ll make you prioritize his dreams over yours. Remember, his desires may be important, but so is your own dreams and goals.

Apart from being smart and having a good sense of humour, a good financial quality is also a must-have when looking for a potential partner. So before you start taking things seriously, ensure that the person you’re dating now has the aforementioned qualities. Finding someone who has these qualities will certainly make you feel secure both now and in the future.

Mosquitoes as Biological Weapons on World War II

Mosquitoes have been considered by many as a threat since many cases of its deadly bites like Dengue Fever, Malaria and the like have been widely proven. But in some aspects of life, the Nazis have considered mosquitoes in as a useful tool for biological weapons during World War II.
Research has been conducted at an institute in Dachau on how long could mosquitoes infected by Malaria disease live long in certain territory of an enemy. The Dachau Entomological Institute was built on January 1942 led by Heinrich Himmler. During the time of war German soldiers are prone to typhoid and they were alarmed for having a typhoid epidemic in their camp.
The main task of the institution is to find cure on insects that are transmitting this kind of sickness. On the other hand, Dr. Klaus Reinhardt said that the institution was built in order to make further studies on making biological weapons for the war. Researchers found many types of mosquitoes in the year 1944.
The studies showed that these insects have different life spans whether they could survive in a long time from a breeding area to the place where they will be dropped. The Anopheles mosquito was been considered as strong enough to infect Malaria disease to people.
Throughout the Second World War, Adolf Hitler had activated and reigned over the utilization of biological and chemical weapons as forms for mass destruction. The research by Himmler has been proved of no use and of little value at the end. After all it was said that the studies done were only for Himmler’s personal benefits. The research of Nazis’ has also been made ridiculous.

The Sweet Creation

Before the boys are going to ask a girl a date, boys typically make friendship to the one he liked most. As a matter of fact, they are not making any effort to immediately court. In fact, they are just taking advantage to the friendship so that girls will love them. In this point, it is only pure friendship and there are no holding hands, hugging and kissing involved here. .

The Careful Date

This is the next stage after the friendship stage. Here, the man start to court the woman and as usual ladies needs to be like a “hard to get” girl so that guys will be challenged more. However, only patient guys can stay to this kind of test.

The reason why girls need to be hard to get is that they have to assess first if the guy fits their qualifications. The challenges a woman does to the guy will determine the sincerity of the man to the woman.

The Public Date

After gaining the sweet ‘yes’ of the girl, both of you are ready to face the public and let friends and family know that you have found your happiness.

Read and understand all the listed guidelines, submission policies, and requirements, and follow them accordingly.

Singaporeans learned something after the PSI skyrocketed last June. The People’s Association together with the NTUC FairPrice Foundation initiated a response system that seeks to improve the government’s means when responding to a crisis particularly if it is about haze. The system is called WeCare PAck.

Haze_singapore

FairPrice Foundation granted S$1m while the CDCs (Community Development Councils) gave S$200,000 each. This project seeks to increase the people’s chances of survival during a haze conditions. The PAck or kit stores:

Food

The PAck consists of instant foods. Though it is not advisable, we cannot choose what to eat when a crisis starts. It is better than not eating at all. There are also other food included like canned foods, water and biscuits.

Medical kit

When there is crisis, medical kit should be provided. The PAck includes medical kit just in case you hurt yourself in the process.

N95 mask

N95 masks are important especially during haze. The mask effectively filters pollutants giving you clean air to breath. But there are many controversies surrounding the distribution of N95 masks. Many Singaporeans were angered because of the improper distribution of the government of N95 masks.  WeCare PAck will serve as your response system.

You should make it a habit to check the PSI level before you leave your house. When it is high and the advisory says to limit outdoor activities for children, pregnant women and elders, you should follow without any doubt. If you really need to get out despite the imminent danger, you should always wear your N95 mask. You can find a N95 mask in your survival kit.

To prevent haze, we should lessen or reduce the use of energy. We cannot force many people to just do that. We should do our best to contribute to the environment.

In planning an event, take into consideration the theme and mood of the day (or night) and formulate your menu and party decorations accordingly.
    2. Draft your guest list. It’s not only the decorations that you’re going to match with the event’s theme, but your guests as well. For instance, if you’re throwing a couple’s event by purchasing Springocean bbq singapore food it would be inappropriate to invite a newly-divorced friend to the party. Moreover, try as much as possible to make calls or distribute invitations at least three weeks in advance for proper RSVP time. Provide an area in your invitation where your guests can indicate food allergies to ensure proper choices of food for all your guests. Depending on the venue, you might also want to include attire suggestions, such as swimsuits for poolside bbq party, sneakers for rocky lake side get-together, or sweaters for late evening outdoor affair.
    3. Prepare the bbq menu. Though guests’ food allergies and preferences are all important considerations, budgeting as well is one of the key factors in creating your party menu. Aside from your spring ocean bbq catering options, consider your cooking abilities in the equation as well. If your cooking skill is like that of a novice, it would be wise to leave the cooking to professional bbq catering providers.

    1. Check the supplies you already have. Walk through your kitchen and check what utensils you already have. Check every drawer and cabinet for place settings and proper serving utensils that you will need. Also, check if you have enough decorations to beautify the venue. Be creative and resourceful! Consider household knickknacks that can be reused in creating elaborate décor. Lastly, make sure you have enough chairs and tables for all your invited guests. It will also help to add a few more extra seats, just in case somebody brings along with them an unexpected friend.
    2. List down things to buy. Now that you’ve checked what supplies you readily have at home, it’s time to shop for those that you don’t have. Include decor essentials, lighting (string lights or candles), plastic containers, trash bags, cleaning supplies, serving stations, table accessories, and bbq food ingredients on your list.
