Will he cheat? How to tell

first_img 42 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring! Share Sharecenter_img LifestyleRelationships Will he cheat? How to tell by: – March 13, 2012 If you’re worried your guy might cheat, try checking out his waistline. A new study says the size of his belly may reveal whether he’ll stray.Even the tiniest suspicion that her man might be unfaithful can turn some women into an investigator worthy of a guest-starring role on CSI. Now, a surprising new study suggests that women with huskier mates can breathe a bit easier on this front.Here’s the scoop: When researchers surveyed 1,000 men, 23% of average-sized guys and 19% of moderately overweight men said they’d cheat on their partners if they had the chance. However, only 11% of very overweight men said they’d stray. “The more you weigh, the less interested you are in sexual dalliances,” said men’s health expert Sascha Rusch of the health institute Epicure, which commissioned the study. What’s going on here? A lack of testosterone, the hormone that fuels a guy’s libido. “The larger a man’s stomach is, the less testosterone he’s likely to have,” says Harry Fisch, M.D., author of The Male Biological Clock and director of the Male Reproductive Center at Columbia University Medical Center of New York Presbyterian Hospital.Of course, just because he’s less likely to cheat doesn’t mean that obesity is a good thing. A recent study from Duke University revealed that obese people were up to 25 times more likely to report physical intimacy problems (such as lack of desire and impotence than people of average weight). “If his waist is more than 40 inches, it’s a sign to slim down,” says Fisch. So the goal is to lose the extra weight…while keeping those excellent values intact. By Jessica BrownYAHOO Dating Tips and Advice Tweetlast_img read more

LIAT pilots apologise for inconvenience, outline new agreement

first_imgBASSETERRE, St Kitts (CMC) – The President of the Leeward Island Airline Pilots Association (LIAPLA), Captain Carl Burke, has apologised to the travelling public in the Caribbean after pilots refused to fly the ATR72 aircraft operated by the regional carrier, LIAT, over salary increases.“Well first of all, with the most recent situation which took place last week, I want to apologise to any persons that were inconvenienced and I want to give them all reassurance that the pilots normally, usually exhaust all means of negotiations with LIAT….,” Burke told WINN FM radio station.He told radio listeners the LIAPLA had brought in an attorney to assist it with the negotiations and that “there was a deal that was brokered in the Attorney General Labour Minister’s office on the 24th of May and we thought that would have put the matter of negotiations to bed.“Unfortunately the company did not follow through, or wrote us on the second of June indicating that they could not meet to some of the terms and conditions which were agreed to, but in general before any action is considered we always try to exhaust all means of negotiations that are arriving at.“We just don’t take action like that and in this case the pilots had no alternative than to stop flying the ATR 72, I think that they could be viewed as being reasonable that they were negotiating a rate of pay for an aircraft that is not covered under your contract for four years, I think four years is a long time,” Burke said.According to LIAT, it operates 10 ATR aircraft with the ATR72 capable of carrying 68 passengers, “by refusing to fly the ATR72 on the morning of June 7th, several aircraft and passengers were delayed at points of departure, including Trinidad, St Vincent, Tortola and Guyana”.The airline which denied reports that it had abandoned its pilots, said that “in this situation, the company’s priority remains to transport our loyal and paying passengers”.Burke said that under the new the agreement that ended the three-day industrial action, “the pilots will start receiving the wage package or the new ATR salary from July 19th 2017”.He said the retroactive payments will be in three tranches paid from August.“So I guess August, September, October, and then there’s a gap and then there’s another schedule which will commence I think December for six payments. This was an agreement that was reached, it was formalised by way of a consent order which was filed in the Industrial Court on Saturday,” he said, adding “this has basically brought a close to the negotiations with LIAT as it pertains to wage packages with the pilots”.Asked by his radio host as to whether the agreement will work given that the airline and its pilots have had a series of disputes over the years linked to pay and work conditions,’ Burke told listeners he was confident it would succeed.“Well it should because as I said it is now a legal obligation on the part of the company, the mere fact that it is filed in the Industrial Court, any breach of the agreement, any party will be charged with contempt of court, we are hoping that everything stays on schedule, that we can have this matter behind us and we can move forward.”LIAT’s main shareholders are the governments of Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Efforts to get other regional governments to become shareholders have so far proven futile. 130 Views   2 comments Share Tweet Sharing is caring!center_img BusinessLifestyleNewsRegionalTravel LIAT pilots apologise for inconvenience, outline new agreement by: Caribbean Media Corporation – June 13, 2017 Share Sharelast_img read more

Caribbean Warned to Prepare for Possibility of Severe Outbreak Of Dengue Fever

first_img Share 28 Views   no discussions HealthLifestyleNewsRegional Caribbean Warned to Prepare for Possibility of Severe Outbreak Of Dengue Fever by: – May 11, 2018 Share Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring! Tweet (Caribbean 360) PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, Friday May 11, 2018 – While Chikungunya and Zika which swept the region in 2014 and 2016 are not expected back anytime soon, the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) is warning residents to “gear-up for the possibility of a major outbreak of dengue fever in 2018.”It says that’s because the pre-conditions of abundant mosquito vector levels still exist and increased levels of dengue are being reported in Latin America and elsewhere.The Trinidad-based CARPHA says it is imperative, as rainy season begins in many countries, that efforts to stop mosquitoes breeding be stepped up, especially for pregnant women and vulnerable populations, noting that dengue remains a global health problem and, like Zika and Chikungunya, there is no specific treatment for the disease.“Although dengue is not new to the region, we need to gear up for the possibility of a severe outbreak. This virus has been increasing in frequency over the past 30 years. Reports from Latin America elsewhere show markedly increased dengue in recent months, so we in the Caribbean can expect it will soon be here,” CARPHA Executive Director, Dr James Hospedales said yesterday in observance of Caribbean Mosquito Awareness Week 2018.Under the slogan “Fight the bite, destroy mosquito breeding sites”, Caribbean Mosquito Awareness Week is being marked May 7 to 13, and focuses on mosquito borne diseases and risks associated with them.The measures used for controlling the spread of dengue are the same as those for Zika and Chikungunya as these diseases are transmitted by the same mosquito, Aedes aegypti. CARPHA said that as the rainy season approaches, mosquito control and awareness activities need to be intensified.It says the most effective way to avoid getting sick from viruses spread by mosquitoes is to prevent mosquito bites. Research by CARPHA and the Pan American Health Organization and World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) shows that drums and tyres are the main mosquito breeding sources in Caribbean countries.“We need to clean up our surroundings. The two most important things to manage mosquito populations in our Caribbean countries are to manage water storage drums and tanks, and properly dispose of used vehicle tires to prevent mosquitos breeding,” said Dr Hospedales.Actions that can be taken include covering drums and tanks, checking the guttering, removing stagnant water sources and individuals protecting themselves and their family from bites.Infants, young children, older adults and women who are pregnant or trying to get pregnant should take extra precautions to avoid mosquito bites and enlist the help of family, friends and neighbours to destroy breeding sites.Dengue is a flu-like illness that affects infants, young children and adults, but can be severe and cause death. Symptoms typically begin four to ten days after infection. This may include a high fever, headache, vomiting, muscle and joint pains, and a characteristic skin rash. This illness can evolve to severe dengue, characterized by potentially deadly complication due to intense and continuous abdominal pain or tenderness, persistent vomiting.last_img read more

Better airlift needed for Caribbean, says tourism chief

first_imgJosef Forstmayr, president of the CHTA. Photo credit: jamaica-gleaner.comPARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas — Despite the region spending millions of dollars to secure airlift to the Caribbean, ticket prices are still too high and remain insufficient to sustain the industry, according to a tourism leader. Josef Forstmayr, president of the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA), addressing the opening of Caribbean Marketplace at the glittering Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in The Bahamas, asserted: “There are no ‘drive-ins’ in the Caribbean – most of our guests arrive by air.”He estimated in 2010 the Caribbean governments “collectively paid US$45 million to secure airlift – only to find that our airlift is still inadequate and way too expensive for our visitors.”The CHTA president noted intra-Caribbean tourism “once represented 13% of the region’s tourism; as much as Canada. The combined population of Caribbean countries is 40 million. However, due to the lack of a competitive and truly regional airline, regional tourism has been suffocated by outrageous ticket prices and a cumbersome and ill-conceived network.”The CHTA chief also criticized bureaucratic procedures in the region: “Caribbean nationals cannot travel freely between their countries without being subjected to visas, long immigration lines and other bureaucratic indulgences that stifle any sense of hospitality, the Caribbean’s trademark.” Caribbean News Now Tweet Share Share 29 Views   one commentcenter_img Share Sharing is caring!
