What Do Men Really Want In a Wife?

A good cook–or good in bed? What do men really want in a wife? It’s a question single women ask themselves all the time. And married wives beat themselves up about on insecure days. Are we good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, skinny enough? What qualities do our husbands actually value the most?Well, according to a new survey, it ain’t what’s in the mirror.Russian dating site ElenasModels.com asked men to list the top three qualities they look at for a wife. And it turns out twenty-five percent of them chose “loyalty” as number one. Fifteen percent chose “loving/loves me” and rounding out number three was “honesty” — chosen by ten percent of the men.Elena Petrova, the founder and CEO of Elena’s Models says she was surprised by the results. “Looks aren’t the top priority for men when seeking a serious relationship and marriage; the integrity of the relationship is,” she says.They also surveyed women about the top three qualities they looked for in men. Perhaps less surprisingly, looks didn’t even make it into the top 10. “This survey confirms it once again that honesty, love and loyalty are the top priority in the long term to make a relationship work,” says Petrova.So while it’s still probably not a good idea to just let yourself go completely–it’s nice to know your husband probably isn’t contemplating his exit strategy on your bloated days. As the cliche goes, it really is what’s on the inside that counts.The detailed survey data of what men want in a wife can be found at Elena’s Models.By Marianne Beach, GalTime.comlast_img read more

New application launched to provide easy access to information on Government services

first_img Tweet Share Members of the public wanting to access essential information about Government services now have a quick and efficient way to do so.The Information and Communication Technology Unit (ICTU) of the Establishment, Personnel and Training Department (EPTD) has launched a web application dubbed “Connect2Government”.Connect2Government is a web based help desk system that will allow an operator to query clients’ questions or inquiries using a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) database application. Robert John of the ICTU says in order to ensure the effective use of this new application the Establishment Personnel and Training Department has reorganized the PBX Operator services into a Customer Call Centre which is expected to enhance the delivery of services provided to the General Public.“The Government is now introducing a Customer Call Centre concept so the public will be able to call in to the Customer Call Centre and operators will receive the information and basically use this application to answer queries. In the application it contains many questions which are frequently asked by members of the public with regards to how Ministries operate or how they can access certain information, or where they can acquire certain forms from”.Robert John. Photo credit: GIS NewsMembers of the general public and also International callers can access this new service by dialing 3000. According to John, the introduction of this new Information and Communication Technology will allow the general public to interact with the public service in a more progressive manner.“As some people join the service they are not aware of how the service operates. They may themselves receive queries about things they don’t know so therefore time spent in trying to get the information to the public obviously take up time, so now you have an efficient way of saving Government workers time because all the information is in a central location. It allows the Government to be more efficient. In terms of dealing with the public it allows us to be more proactive so the public no longer have to go from building to building or make consecutive calls to get the same piece of information, they now have on central location where their queries can be answered”.The Information and Communications Technology Unit (ICTU) is the central coordinating and executing agency established by the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica to coordinate the planning, implementation and monitoring of eGovernment and the use of Information Communication Technologies (ICT) within the public sector.By: Tarnia GreenGovernment Information Service Share 11 Views   no discussionscenter_img LocalNews New application launched to provide easy access to information on Government services by: – April 26, 2012 Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Guardiola to stick with City despite ban: reports

first_imgRead Also: EPL: Mourinho jokes Man Utd deserve 17/18 title after placing second to City“Everyone has been told they need to stay professional but also there is an understanding that they have their own decisions to make,” said the source.UEFA announced the sanction on Friday, with European football’s governing body punishing City for what it said were “serious” financial fair-play breaches between 2012 and 2016.City were also fined 30 million euros ($32.5 million).The heavy sanctions relate to an alleged overstatement of sponsorship revenue in the club’s efforts to comply with financial fair-play rules.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… The 49-year-old Spaniard is said by The Times to have told both the City board and the players he will be staying despite the sanction and reported interest from Serie A champions Juventus. Guardiola, who has been at City for four years, told the players of his intention at a meeting on Saturday.The paper said he was expected to announce he is staying at a press conference on Tuesday, the eve of their re-arranged Premier League match with West Ham.However, it is far from certain he will hold one.He and his West Ham counterpart David Moyes had already performed the pre-match media duties prior to the February 9 game being postponed due to Storm Ciara.The Sun claims the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager has told friends he is going to at least see out his contract with the club which runs until 2021.He is old friends with City executives Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain and enjoys an amicable relationship with club chairman Khaldoon al Mubarak.“He is not the kind of person whose first thought is to leave when things turn bad,” sources close to Guardiola told The Daily Telegraph.According to those sources Guardiola – who was informed of the UEFA ruling prior to its official announcement when he returned from a break in Barcelona on Friday – is “calm” about the ban.Guardiola has won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, and twice lifted the League Cup since arriving at the Etihad Stadium in 2016.– ‘Their own decisions’ –As for the players the Daily Mail says they will stay too, although the Telegraph state the opposite should the club lose the appeal.England striker Raheem Sterling has been the subject of rumours surrounding a likely bid by Real Madrid – who City face in the Champions League last 16 later this month.However, agent Aidy Ward, who has represented Sterling since he was at school, told the Daily Mail his client was focused on City and not any transfer speculation.“Raheem is solely focused on Manchester City and will not be distracted by any talk of transfers at the moment,” said Ward.The club, though, according to the Telegraph, will leave it up to the individuals once the decision on the appeal is delivered, which they believe will be in May.center_img Pep Guardiola has told friends he is going to remain as manager of Manchester City even if the appeal against their two-year European football ban is rejected by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), according to media reports on Monday.Advertisement Promoted Content6 Interesting Ways To Make Money With A DroneCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever Made8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksFantastic-Looking (and Probably Delicious) Bread ArtYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of Anime5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better6 Extreme Facts About Hurricaneslast_img read more

Old Timers

first_imgAt the banquet preceding the Midwest Meet of Champions in Ft. Wayne that I talked about yesterday, they honored coaches from Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan who have coached 50 or more years. Ohio had 2 and Indiana had 6. I happened to be one of them. The others included Bill Welch (Rose Hulman), Jim Egger (Elkhart), Dean Slavens (Goshen), Lafey Armatrout (Crown Point), and Gene Edmonds (Rensselaer). During the banquet and at the meet on Saturday we sat around and told stories we remembered about track in those earlier years of our coaching. Bill goes way back to WWII, and Gene almost as far. Dean and I just hit 50 coaching years last year. Bill works at the Indiana Track Hall of Fame in Terre Haute, and he is a wealth of information on the sport in Indiana. Dean started the MMC in 1974 with Bill Walker in Ft. Wayne. I was on the Indiana All-Star Staff for almost 15 years in the late 80’s and 90’s including two years as Indiana’s head girls’ coach. What one of us couldn’t remember, one of the others chimed in and filled in the blanks. We all remember those days of cinder tracks and the headaches of getting them ready for a meet. When you are all over 70, it is nice to recall your younger days and those great athletes we all had the opportunity to work with. One person we would have loved to have seen there was John Campbell of Gary who won several boys’ championships in a row in the 70’s. John went to administration before he had 50 years in. It was a great weekend and one I will remember for a long time.last_img read more

Fantasy Football

first_imgI have never gotten into Fantasy Football. I know it is huge and a great past time for many football fans. Just like my story yesterday on people keeping a scorebook for Major League baseball games, it is a great way to enjoy your favorite sport. It gives the former players and the “want to be” players a sense of still being in the game. This reminds me of the practice of placing your track participants in a line up on paper before entering a big meet. You try to line them up in a manor that gets you the absolute highest possible point total. Fantasy Football teams are put together to score the most points and thus win the Fantasy League title. I used to spend hours rotating runners and field athletes into a line up that would allow us to win the big track meet. Do you double this runner or save this runner or get all the points you can in this event and forego another event so that in the end I have the best chance to win it all. No good coach would let it up to chance by haphazardly filling out the entry form. The same is true of the time the Fantasy Football people put into their drafting of players and trading other players to maximize their point output. It makes watching a football game or set of games a whole lot more interesting.last_img read more

MLAX : Lerman gets 1st start in goal; Syracuse inefficient in man-up situations

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Matthew Lerman saw the ball careen off the post adjacent to him on two separate occasions at the start of the first quarter against Hofstra.In Syracuse’s first exhibition game of the season, he needed some help early to make sure Hofstra’s attack didn’t find the back of the net.‘I got a little shelled in there against Hofstra right away. I got the first, and that’s the most important thing to me,’ Lerman said. ‘And as we say in practice, ‘The pipe’s not a goal.”Lerman started in net and played two quarters during SU’s opening scrimmage against Hofstra before playing one quarter in the second scrimmage against Le Moyne. He made just two saves against Hofstra despite a barrage of shots toward the net and allowed three goals. After some tense moments early on, the sophomore goaltender settled down and turned away numerous shot attempts by the Pride players to help Syracuse earn a 7-5 win. The Orange defeated the Dolphins 11-5 in the second game.‘I was happy with Matt,’ SU head coach John Desko said. ‘I thought he did a good job, and (it’s) tough on him going out there for the very first time as a starting goaltender, but I thought we got a good performance out of Matt.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHofstra came out firing from all directions right out of the gate, and Lerman made his opening save on a shot that bounced off the turf. The Orange got out in transition and midfielder JoJo Marasco scored, giving Lerman an early cushion.But later, Lerman was forced to stave off a number of man-up situations. After SU defender Brandon Mullins was called for a slashing penalty late in the second quarter, Stephen DiGiovanni got a clean look at the goal from up top in the attacking zone. He fired a blistering shot that ricocheted off Lerman’s chest protector and dropped in front of the crease where Hofstra midfielder Drew Coholan cleaned up the rebound to knot the game at 3.Lerman was happy with his first opportunity to start for the Orange.‘It was outstanding,’ Lerman said. ‘To be able to come out here and make the start and play well enough to not really claim my position in there, but to keep things going a little bit going into practice this week.’Orange struggles in man-up situationsJohn Desko wasn’t willing to show his hand in SU’s man-up situations in both scrimmages. Despite three man-up situations Sunday, Syracuse only took two shots.Neither really had a chance end in the goal.‘To be honest with you, we don’t show a lot this time of year to our opponents,’ Desko said. ‘I think we could have done a better job with what we ran. I was a little disappointed with the number of guys coming back. In man-up situations that either started last year or were backups from last year, we didn’t get good looks off of it.’Syracuse struggled in its limited opportunities with a man advantage Sunday. With a simplified approach, SU had difficulty cracking through either defense.After the Orange came up shorthanded in its only two opportunities against Hofstra, Desko inserted his starting group against Le Moyne to try and get results after Dolphins defender Jeff Gildemeyer was assessed a minute penalty for slashing.Syracuse cycled the ball around the perimeter looking for an opening. Then SU attack Derek Maltz caught the ball high in the attacking zone, stepped beyond the line and Le Moyne was granted possession. As the time remaining in the man-up situation dwindled, the Orange was called for an offsides penalty, and the Dolphins responded scoring a man-up goal of their own.And the players recognized that despite the limited looks in both scrimmages, taking advantage of those opportunities is something they need to work on moving forward.‘The first scrimmage of the year, execution, we definitely need to work on that in practice, and man-ups is one thing that we’re going to stress,’ Maltz said. ‘Just moving the ball quicker, getting to our spots and, yeah, just execution overall.’andtredin@syr.educenter_img Published on February 5, 2012 at 12:00 pmlast_img read more

Marshall students go overseas

first_imgOver spring break, students from the Marshall School of Business traveled to different countries across the globe through the Global Leadership Program and Learning about International Commerce program.Both programs are only open to first-year students and aim to guide them in understanding different types of business strategies in international commerce. LINC is a seven-week course that teaches students about international business concepts.There are aspects such as the economy, the culture and the political situation, that are all taken into account in class before the students go to one of the 13 locations that are provided.“Students are given that information and then, slowly it builds a foundation so that when they are there, meeting with the different companies, they have a background,” said LINC coordinator Sean O’Connell.During the seven-week program, while the students are still on campus, classes revolve around concepts regarding cultural awareness and the economic state of the country. Students are engaged in conversations with professors who have taught in the program multiple times.Jason Hill, a freshman majoring in business administration with an emphasis in cinematic arts, explained that he related to his professors when he traveled to Santiago, Chile. According to O’Connell, the LINC program has not changed in the past 10 years, but the companies and the focus of the programs have.Stephanie Chang, a freshman majoring in business administration, traveled to New Delhi, India over spring break and said that her time in class helped her throughout new experiences in New Delhi.“A lot of the time that we spent in class before the trip, it was about being culturally aware and understanding that the businesses we were going to be visiting weren’t traditional Western businesses,” Chang said.Though they did not meet with other business students in the area, there were interactive events that the USC students enjoyed.Chang especially enjoyed the meeting with representatives from Indigo Airlines because they treated the USC students as college students who were interested in learning more about business.“Seeing how not all successful companies are American is a huge takeaway for me,” Chang said.Bella Meschini, a freshman majoring in business administration, also traveled to India and enjoyed the activities that USC planned, as well as the cultural sights, such as the Taj Mahal. There was also a company visit, which combined both.“One of the company visits that we made was to a dance company,” Mischini said. “Their mission is to keep the Indian culture alive through traditional dance, so that was really interesting too.”During their time in the different countries, students lived in hotels in safe areas and were given the opportunity to experience new cultures.“It kind of helps me with looking at the bigger picture,” Hill said. “The market is bigger than just the LA market or the American market … friends and I toured a lot of the city; we climbed a hill; we visited a zoo, toured the town [and] we tried a lot of new restaurants…”The LINC program also offers first year students the opportunity to visit countries, such as Japan and Australia, in May.last_img read more

Father-son duo win end-of-season awards for USC

first_imgAnd it did: the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches announced Tuesday that eight USC players — seven of whom already lay claim to 2012 All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation awards — earned All-American honors.Junior driver Nikola Vavic, junior goalie James Clarke and senior driver Michael Rosenthal captured first-team All-American honors, while sophomore driver Kostas Genidounias and junior two-meter Mace Rapsey earned second and third team honors, respectively. A trio of veteran Trojan stalwarts — senior two-meter Matt Burton, junior two-meter Jeremy Davie and senior driver Stephen Siri — rounded out USC’s All-American honorees, with each player earning honorable mention.Nikola Vavic, who also won the ACWPC’s player of the year award, appears poised to collect even more hardware as the prohibitive favorite for the coveted Cutino Award, given annually to collegiate water polo’s best player. The three-time All-American broke USC’s single-season scoring record with 83 goals, breaking a previous mark that had stood since 1988, and additionally chipped in a team-leading 65 assists. Now fourth on USC’s all-time scoring list with still another season to play, Nikola Vavic’s nomination makes it nine consecutive years in which USC has had a Cutino Award finalist. The winner will be announced June 1.Not to be outdone, USC coach Jovan Vavic — Nikola’s father — won the ACWPC’s coach of the year award after completing just USC’s second undefeated season and first since 2008. The fiery coach now boasts a 420-64 career record at USC — a robust .867 winning percentage. Between coaching both the men’s and women’s teams, Jovan Vavic has accumulated 11 national championships, won 11 ACWPC coach of the year awards and has coached 10 Cutino Award winners. Recognizing his unprecedented string of success, USA Water Polo appointed Jovan Vavic interim head coach of the USC Men’s Senior National Team on Nov. 20. After compiling a perfect 29-0 record en route to winning its fifth consecutive national championship, the 2012 USC men’s water polo team figured to receive plenty of consideration during the awards season.Rare accomplishment · Jovan Vavic (above) and junior driver Nikola Vavic were named coach and player of the year, respectively. – Ralph Cheung | Daily Trojanlast_img read more
