Financial advice for new parents

first_imgAs prepared as you’d like to be for a new arrival, nothing can absolutely ready you for this enormous change to your life. Don’t let financial stress overshadow the excitement of welcoming a new little one to your family. Below is helpful financial advice for new parents to consider before busy days with baby and those inevitable sleepless nights.Have a good understanding of your health insurance to anticipate upcoming costs: There’s nothing worse than being hit with a giant hospital bill without any warning. It is difficult to know exactly how much you will be charged, as some experiences are more involved (and are longer) than others, but having a solid grasp on your plan and what is covered will help you stress less about finances after baby arrives.Add practical items to your gift registry: It’s easy to fall into the trap of adding unnecessary baby gear to your wish list (such as cute outfits or expensive accessories). But it’s important to remember to ask for things you will actually need a lot of, like diapers, for instance. Baby store gift cards are also a smart option. Of course you will want other fun baby gifts, but be mindful of their cost; gift-givers will be more likely to purchase items that are reasonably priced, and you may actually get more from your family and friends if what you’re requesting is at a lower cost.Consider childcare options in advance: It may be hard to imagine leaving your little one and heading back to work, but for many, it is a must. Before childbirth, have a plan in place for how you will handle this transition. Childcare can be extremely costly and in some cases can cost as much as a rent or mortgage payment. Couples who cannot afford this option often choose to have one parent stay home with the child. In this instance, you will become a one-income household. Deciding what to do in advance will help you work out what is best not only for your baby, but for your wallet.Familiarize yourself with your company maternity/paternity leave policy: After your child is born, you will want to enjoy these first few months without unexpected financial challenges. Before his or her birth, make sure you fully understand your parental leave policies. Most companies have similar plans in place (typically around six weeks), but it’s important you and your partner evaluate your options prior to when the leave period starts. That way you can have a better plan ahead of schedule, which your employer will greatly appreciate as well. 75SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Wendy Moody Wendy Moody is a Senior Editor with CUInsight.com.

The Zagreb Institute of Economics has published a new analysis of tourism indicators in Croatia

first_imgQuality, short and efficient analysis by the author Ivana Rašić from the Institute of Economics Zagreb, which gives a good overview of tourism indicators. Definitely a recommendation to read the “easy” reading for the upcoming weekend, in order to analyze all the indicators and where we are and where we are going. Source: EIZ In addition to the analysis of the basic indicators of the tourism sector for Croatia, an interesting comparison was made with the indicators for the European Union, as well as at the global level. In addition, the analysis provides an overview of the financial indicators of the leading companies in the tourism sector in Croatia and the expected trends in the current and next year, respectively. Thus, according to Eurostat data for 2018, the most popular tourist destination for foreign tourists was Spain with 301 million overnight stays of foreign tourists in tourist accommodation facilities, which is 18,7 percent of the total number of overnight stays of non-residents in the EU-28. Side dish: EIZ SECTORAL ANALYSIS: Tourism Viewed by EU member states, the share of direct gross value added in the gross value added of the economy is the highest in Croatia (10,9 percent). It is followed by Portugal with a share of 6,7 percent, Spain with 6,6 percent and Italy with a share of 6 percent. This share in other countries for which data are available ranges from 2 percent in Poland to 5,8 percent in Hungary. The Institute of Economics Zagreb (EIZ) regularly publishes sector analyzes, ie a publication that monitors the situation and trends in various sectors, including tourism. On the other hand, the lowest tourist attendance is recorded in Luxembourg and Latvia. With 83,1 million overnight stays of foreign tourists (a share of 5,2 percent) in 2018, Croatia is still in a very good eighth place in the ranking of EU countries. Spain is followed by the United Kingdom with 217,2 million overnight stays, followed by Italy with 216,5 million overnight stays and France with 140,7 million overnight stays. These countries account for more than half (54,5 percent) of the total number of overnight stays by foreign tourists in the European Union. last_img read more

Euthanasia cases double in Belgium in just five years

first_imgMailOnline 5 February 2016The number of people to die by euthanasia in Belgium has more than doubled in just five years, new figures have shown.More than 2,000 people died last year under the country’s euthanasia laws, which cover children as well as adults, and which allow people to be killed without giving consent.The rapid increase in the euthanasia total mirrors the rate of euthanasia in neighbouring Holland, where mercy killing laws were brought in in 2002, a year before those in Belgium.The figures provoked fresh warnings in Britain over the risks of any shift of the law here in the same direction.Anti-euthanasia campaigner and former government adviser on terrorism Lord Carlile said: ‘I am shocked by these figures in Belgium. They show a poorly compliant ethical regime which ought to be examined.‘There is a real danger that elderly vulnerable people in particular are having their rights violated.’The newly-released figures show that, from less than 300 in 2003, the year the country’s euthanasia law was introduced, numbers of those who died by euthanasia in Belgium reached 2,021 last year.The level was higher than 2,000 for the first time and more than double the 954 recorded in 2010.The real total of euthanasia deaths may be higher still.READ MORE: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3434356/Euthanasia-cases-double-Belgium-just-five-years-2-000-people-used-country-s-right-die-law-past-12-months.htmlKeep up with family issues in NZ.

Video: Fans reveals the exact moment that ‘broke’ David De Gea

first_imgDavid de Gea’s performance in the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea has resulted in fans looking for the exact moment that ‘broke’ him. The Manchester United goalkeeper was once regarded as one of the world’s best but mistakes have begun to creep into his game, with this evening’s 3-1 defeat highlighting his fall from grace. His sharp decline has everyone asking the same question… What happened? Well, Cristiano Ronaldo happened. Read Also: Solskjaer takes blame for team selection in Chelsea defeat Bruno Fernandes scored a consolation from the penalty spot five minutes from time. Chelsea will now take on Arsenal in the final on August 1. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 De Gea’s misery began against Chelsea when Olivier Giroud put Frank Lampard’s side ahead just before half time. His flick caught de Gea off guard which fizzed away from his grasp. The second half then begun with Mason Mount’s low drive spilling out of his hands to double Chelsea’s lead. De Gea kept United in the game with string of saves before Harry Maguire’s own goal ended all hopes of a comeback. Portuguese superstar Ronaldo put three past Spain at the World Cup back in 2018, with de Gea between the sticks. While a player of Ronaldo’s quality scoring a hat-trick past you is nothing to be ashamed off, it was the manner of the goals that worried fans. His second was straight at the 29-year-old who spilled it into the net on the world stage. Loading…last_img read more

EPL: City set to compound Newcastle woes

first_imgRelatedPosts Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says David Silva recovers from COVID-19 Man City top players test positive for coronavirus Newcastle vs. Man CityVenue: St. James’s ParkKick off: 1:30PMManchester City’s pursuit of Premier League leaders Liverpool will continue this afternoon when they make the trip to Newcastle United.Pep Guardiola’s side are currently third in the table – nine points off the summit – while Newcastle are down in 14th spot having suffered a 2-0 loss away to Aston Villa in the Monday Night Football.There was no room for error against Chelsea last weekend as City entered the match 12 points behind Liverpool, who had recorded a 2-1 victory away to Crystal Palace earlier in the afternoon.N’Golo Kante handed the Blues a one-goal advantage at the Etihad Stadium, but Kevin De Bruyne levelled the scores before Riyad Mahrez scored a vital second goal. The victory move Guardiola’s side back to within nine points, which still stands heading into this weekend’s matches.A record of nine wins, one draw and three defeats has brought the Citizens 28 points, leaving them one point behind second-placed Leicester. Liverpool have 37 points from their 13 matches, and the Reds will fancy their chances of overcoming Brighton & Hove Albion later today.City’s task is actually quite simple: just keep winning.There is simply no room for error due to Liverpool’s stunning form, and it might well be that Guardiola puts his focus on the Champions League if the club are unable to close the gap in the league heading into the final few months.The English champions were in Champions League action on Tuesday night, drawing 1-1 with Shakhtar Donetsk at the Etihad Stadium.The point was enough for City to secure their passage into the round of 16 as group winners, but it was far from a convincing performance.In all competitions, City have won just one of their last four matches.That said, their only defeat since the start of October came at Liverpool, and there is an argument that the reigning champions were much the better side for long periods of the clash at Anfield.The Citizens have lost two of their last four Premier League away matches, though, including a 3-2 defeat at Norwich City in the middle of September.There is no question that the team are struggling defensively due to the departure of Vincent Kompany and injury for the brilliant Aymeric Laporte.In terms of what is ahead for Guardiola’s side, they will open the month of December with a trip to Burnley, before the small matter of the Manchester derby at home to Manchester United on December 7.They will then take on Arsenal, Leicester and Wolverhampton Wanderers before hosting Sheffield United on December 29, which will bring an end to their 2019.Meanwhile, four wins, three draws and six defeats – that is how Newcastle have performed in the league this season.A total of 15 points has left them in 14th spot in the table, five points clear of the relegation zone.The Magpies actually entered Monday’s clash with Villa off the back of successive wins over West Ham United and Bournemouth but could not make it three in a row as they suffered a two-goal loss at Villa Park. Jonjo Shelvey was handed the captain’s armband in the absence of Jamaal Lascelles, but the Englishman could not inspire his team from the middle of the park.Miguel Almiron’s struggles continued, meanwhile, meaning that the Paraguay international has still not registered a goal or an assist since arriving from the MLS during the January transfer window.Allan Saint-Maximin is also yet to score this season, but the attacker has excited the fans with his performances.While the loss at Villa was disappointing, there is no question that Newcastle have shown signs of improvement in recent months.Indeed, since being thumped 5-0 at Leicester City at the end of September, they have beaten Manchester United, West Ham and Bournemouth, in addition to sharing the points in a 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers.The Magpies also only just lost at Chelsea last month but now face a City side that just cannot afford to drop points due to Liverpool’s form.Bruce’s team will then head into a very interesting set of fixtures against Sheffield United, Southampton, Burnley and Crystal Palace, before travelling to Old Trafford on Boxing Day to take on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United.Newcastle did run out 2-1 winners in the corresponding match last season, although that was their first Premier League victory over the Citizens since 2005, with the Manchester side dominating this fixture in recent years.There is no question that the supporters will be demanding a response this weekend, and the Magpies have only lost one of their six league matches at St James’ Park this season, which came on the opening weekend to Arsenal. Newcastle possible XI: Dubravka, Yedlin, Fernandez, Clark, Dummett, Willems, Almiron, S Longstaff, Shelvey, Saint-Maximin, Joelinton.Man City possible XI: Ederson, Cancelo, Fernandinho, Stones, Mendy, Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne, Sterling, Jesus, Bernardo.Tags: EPLManchester CityNewcastlelast_img read more
