The pandemic caused many businesses to suffer as they could not serve customers and had to make significant adjustments. Restaurants, for example, had to close their doors as government agencies advised people not to gather in groups. It also substantially impacted several industries where companies got forced to shut down. The closure of these businesses resulted in the loss of jobs and income for many people.


However, there are a few sectors that completely lost their services. They primarily relied on physical interaction with people, leading to their downfall. The good news is that some of these businesses are now on the road to recovery. With the help of technology, they have been able to find ways to adapt and safely serve customers. Here are some of those sectors on the way to recovery.

An SMSF loan is a loan that you take out with your own self-managed super fund. You need to be the primary member of the fund and be over 18 years old. The loan can be for any purpose, but it must have some connection to the investment of your superannuation assets.

In Australia, borrowers can access SMSF home loans for investment properties through SMSF. This is a mortgage controlled by the members of a super fund, which can be used to buy an investment property that produces rental income and capital growth. The money also goes towards retirement savings within your super fund.

If you have a super fund, you can access money for any purchase through your regular borrowing arrangements. If the purchase is an investment property, then you need to apply for a special SMSF loan from an approved lender. The good news is, you can get a loan to help you save - and we've got the details just below!

As the world becomes increasingly digitized, more and more people are taking their work on the road with them. This new lifestyle - often called the digital nomad lifestyle - can be a great way to see the world and experience new cultures. But it also comes with its own set of risks. This article will explore the digital nomad lifestyle and provide tips for staying safe while traveling.


What is a Digital Nomad?

A digital nomad uses technology to make a living, typically while traveling. This might mean working remotely for a company based in another country or running your own online business. Being a digital nomad is possible even if you don't work entirely online. For example, you could be a freelance photographer who sells their work online.


The key thing that sets digital nomads apart from other travelers is that they rely on technology to do their work. This means that they often need to find places with reliable internet access and good infrastructure. In many cases, this means staying in cities rather than rural areas.

Women are constantly told that they're not practicing self-care if they're not taking care of everyone else. But what if taking care of yourself doesn't mean neglecting your loved ones? What if it means setting boundaries and making time for yourself?


Self-care is about more than just manicures and bubble baths (although those things are nice, too!). It's about listening to your body and mind and giving yourself what you need to feel your best. It's about taking care of your physical, mental, and emotional well-being and recognizing that you can't pour from an empty cup.


If you're used to putting everyone else's needs before your own, it can be hard to shift to self-care. But it's so worth it! When you take care of yourself, you're better able to take care of those around you and stay effective and productive in all areas of your life.

Here are some self-care tips for women who want to start putting themselves first:

Finding the perfect dress for a party can be a daunting task. With so many options and styles to choose from, it can be difficult to narrow down your choices. But if you keep these five things in mind, you'll be able to find a show-stopping gown for any occasion.

 

Follow the Dress-Code

When shopping for your party dress, be sure to take the party's dress code into consideration. A party's dress code can range from black-tie and formal to cocktail and casual. Each dress-code option comes with different expectations, so shop at a place with tons of options like a wholesale women's clothing store.

 

Dress for the Occasion

Aside from the dress code, you should think about what the party will entail. If the party requires a lot of movement or dancing, for example, you should look for a dress that is comfortable. The location of the party will also play a role in how you plan your outfit. If the party is outside, for example, choose a party dress that is appropriate for the season. If the party is at a special location, such as a museum, boat, or other venue, try to choose a dress that reflects the location.

In the U.S., 80% of the population from 11 years old to 30 have some degree of acne. It is the most common skin problem in the country, also affecting some older adults. While it is crucial to see a skin specialist for your acne, you must also find out how your food can worsen or help reduce your acne. This article will explore what experts have to say about this.


Forms of Acne

Acne develops when dead skin cells, oily sebum, bacteria, and hair block pores. There are many forms of acne.


  • Blackheads are open pores that are clogged with dead skin and sebum. Exposure to air discolors the sebum.
  • Whiteheads are clogged hair follicles that remain closed.
  • Papules are small inflamed bumps in the skin that may be pink or red. They feel tender.
  • Pustules are pus-filled pimples. The base is red, while the pus shows through as white or yellow. Picking at these can result in scars.
  • Nodules are pimples that develop deep under the skin. They are large, solid, and cause pain.
  • Cysts are larger pus-filled nodules that cause scars.
  • Fungal acne is an itchy inflammation caused by excessive yeast in hair follicles.

The Royal Treatment at Puerto Princesa

With safety protocols firmly enforced, Puerto Princesa is poised to again welcome tourists with open arms. In recent years, the highly urbanized city and tourist haven has been paralyzed by the Covid-19 pandemic, then pummeled by Typhoon Odette. But it is now on the road to recovery---as spectacularly as its scenic, romantic and gastronomic attractions.

“The tourism industry is the lifeblood of Puerto Princesa, along with agriculture. Almost 15,000 people directly or indirectly benefit from tourism. In varying degrees, most of the recent construction and development projects are related to tourism: hotel-building, parks, cruise-ship ports, street lights, roads, and many more. Unfortunately, some of these have been on hold since the onset of the pandemic,” discloses Demetrio “Toto” Alvior Jr., the city tourism officer.

Compassion is a natural human response to seeing others in pain or distress. Children are capable of this too and there are ways that you can build their compassion. For example, an independent school in London suggests that parents spend time teaching their children about the different emotions that we experience as people and why. Below is more on how you can deliver this lesson.

 

Understanding Body Language

As mentioned above, to teach your child about compassion you should ideally talk to them about the different emotions that we feel and why. Understanding this can help them to be better clued up about how others feel and become a better detector of body language. Only then can we make efforts to actually help.

Chores give children a glimpse into what adult life is like by giving them the chance to assume responsibility and contribute at home. There are also many fundamental life lessons that they can take away too, like how to clean up and take care of themselves. From a development perspective, they can develop their independence, resilience, and a good work ethic. Below is information from an IB school in the UK on how chores help children with their development.

Your child will meet a range of people from all different walks of life. They may have differing views of them and can teach them many things. Knowing how to respect others is a big part of socializing and raising your child to be respectful of all should be a part of this. Below is some guidance from a prep school in Buckinghamshire on how to teach your child to respect other cultures.

 

Use a Map

The world is very big and diverse. There are 195 countries around the world, all with their own identity. This is a great place to start and can help your child to develop a broad understanding of where different people are from.

 

Treating Everyone as Equals

We are all equals that deserve respect and to be treated kindly. This is a message that you can send to your child by doing so in your interactions with others.

School trips give children the opportunity to explore the world around them and put what they’ve learned into practice. They can gain new, unique experiences and create lasting memories with their friends. There’s much more to school trips too. For example, they teach children how to present themselves when outside of their school environment. A nursery in Amersham has shared more on the benefits of school trips for children with us below.

 

Taking Responsibility

When on a school trip, children go out and represent their school. It’s their duty to uphold a positive image and not misrepresent themselves and their peers. This can teach them about responsibility and to be mindful of their behaviour. 

 

Open-Mindedness

There’s so much that you can learn by being surrounded by the same people in the same environment. Travelling opens children to new ideas and ways of thinking that are different to their own. At the same time, they can develop respect for others’ ideas and their cultures.

 

With the National Elections just within reach, Rex Education and the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) are working together to help educate voters about the values we should be looking for in the leaders we will elect.

“How the Philippines will come out of this pandemic and handle the impending global economic recession will rely on the next 6 years. This is why it is crucial that the leaders we will elect in the upcoming May 9 elections share the heart of the Filipino people and possess the values to stand for and serve our country. We have to choose well and vote for someone who is truly Maka-Pilipinas,” said Rex Education CEO, Don Timothy Buhain.
