3 ways to love what you’re doing (even if you don’t love what you do)

first_imgStudies have shown that 20% of people enjoy their jobs, 20% dislike their jobs, and the rest are stuck somewhere in the middle. If you’re not in the positive 20% then you’re probably not working at your dream job. But even so, you can find ways to enjoy what you’re doing even if you’d rather be doing something else. If you’re in that boat, here are three ways to improve your outlook…Less negativity: If you want to be a better mood at work, you have to step letting others bring you down. While co-workers aren’t always to blame, when a cloud of negativity is overhead, it’s hard to see the sunshine. Keep this in mind the next time you’re listening to someone complain about work.More positivity: Regardless of the negatives around you, there must be some positives to your job or else you never would have accepted it in the first place. Think about the ways in which you help your customers. Every day, you get to help people find solutions to problems. They really appreciate what you do for them. Being able to help someone out is a great feeling. Try to focus on that every morning when you roll out of bed.Figure out your next move: If the job has you down, figure out what the problem is. Is it something you can easily fix? Great. Work on it. If it’s not an easy problem to solve, you have to make a decision to either find something else to do or stick it out and hope things get better. 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

Top spots for Chesters and Boyd

He missed the cut by a stroke in the Open Championship but his European win earns him exemption to next year’s event at St Andrews.Sarah-Jane Boyd, 23, missed out on the 2013 Order of Merit title by a handful of points, but she was a comfortable winner this year. She said: “It was a goal to try and go one better this year, so it’s nice to win. It shows you have played consistently throughout the year.”She was runner-up in the English mid-amateur and the British stroke play – a title she won in 2012 – and was third when defending the English amateur and also third in the English open stroke play.“I was knocking on the door for all of them and winning the Order of Merit has topped everything off nicely,” she said. In addition she helped England to win the women’s Home Internationals, taking 4.5 points from five matches.Sarah-Jane’s next big date is the final qualifying school for the Ladies European Tour. “I’ve learned a lot from being in England Golf squads and it’s brought my game on. Now I’m looking forward to taking that into the pro ranks and hopefully improving and getting better.”Images © Leaderboard PhotographyLeading final placingsTitleist FootJoy Men’s Order of Merit 3.       Alex Peters (Notts’ Ladies)                       742.700 5        Toby Tree (Golf at Goodwood)                         62,982 5.       Annabel Dimmock (Wentworth)                 682.500 8        Oscar Granstrom-Livesey (Royal Mid Surrey) 55,061 9        Ben Stow (Rushmore)                                       54,682 1.       Sarah-Jane Boyd (Truro) 915.500 3        Paul Howard (Southport & Ainsdale)80,081 10      Bronte Law (Bramhall)                             452.500 7        Scott Gregory (Corhampton)     56,472                         7.       Gabriella Cowley (Hanbury Manor)           493.875 25 Nov 2014 Top spots for Chesters and Boyd 2.       Meghan MacLaren (Wellingborough) 793.583 4.       Sammie Giles (St Mellion)  729.700 6.       Gemma Clews (Delamere Forest)             551.250 8.       Inci Mehmet (Wentworth482.833 6        Ryan Evans (Wellingborough)                          58,185 9.       Hayley Davis (Ferndown)                         481.667last_img read more

MSK, Hackensack Meridian To Partner In Cancer Care

first_imgBy John BurtonMIDDLETOWN – Cancer care just reached a new level for many patients with the joining of two medical institutions and brands.Memorial Sloan Kettering and Hackensack Meridian Health announced a partnering that will be able to provide a wide range of services and treatments and increased convenience for patients and families facing a cancer diagnosis.“It is really a transformational type of partnership. There is really nothing like it,” said Robert Garrett, co-chief executive officer for Hackensack Meridian Health.This strategic partnership, Garrett said, will allow two leaders in the medical treatment community, in its co-branding, to collaborate on cancer care and research, in addition to now allowing patients the opportunity to seek treatment and physicians affiliated with either and both institutions.“They’ll be able to pick and choose, go back and forth,” Garrett said, explaining that a newly formed team made up of professionals from both Sloan Kettering and Hackensack will establish criteria “used across all of our cancer centers.”MSK has recently opened its Monmouth out-patient facility, located just off Garden State Parkway Exit 114 in Middletown. The strategy for that location, MSK representatives said, was to offer patients and families from the Ocean-Monmouth-Middlesex counties-area the ability to avoid making the trip to MSK’s New York City or Basking Ridge treatment centers, which adds travel to the stress of treatment. The thought is this new initiative will greater enhance the ability for patients to receive a wide-array of treatment options in reasonably accessible locations.MSK plans on opening an additional site in Montvale in the coming year.Hackensack Meridian offers cancer treatment at its John Theurer Cancer Center, at Hackensack University Medical Center, Hackensack; Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune; Riverview Medical Center, Red Bank; Bayshore Community Hospital, Holmdel; Ocean Medical Center, Brick; Raritan Bay Medical Center, at its Old Bridge and Perth Amboy facilities; and other sites located throughout much of New Jersey.This partnering will also provide patients the unprecedented opportunity to benefit from more than 800 clinical trials, providing those patients with the most cutting edge developments in treatment “available anywhere in the world,” Garrett said.For the longer term, the two institutions will collaborate on establishing new cancer-specific treatment centers. “We will not only develop but we will own and operate together in an equal joint venture,” Garrett said. The first sites will be in New Jersey, but Garrett explained it could develop into a regional or even a national-type of initiative.“This momentous partnership between the world’s first cancer hospital and New Jersey’s premier hospital system will rewrite the future of cancer care in New Jersey,” Craig B. Thompson, M.D., MSK’s president and chief executive officer, said in a released statement.“This means world class cancer care closer to home,” Garrett said.last_img read more

New-look CPL for 2016

first_imgKINGSTON (CMC): The salary cap of franchises has been raised for next year’s Hero Caribbean Premier League, in what is one of several changes to the region’s premier Twenty20 tournament. Organisers announced yesterday the salary cap had been placed at US$780,000, up from $600, 000 from last year. Also, franchises will now be able to sign one ‘marquee’ player as a free agent before next February’s player draft, but will be allowed only three retained players instead of four. The limit on overseas players has increased to five from four players while players who live in the franchise territory has been reduced from four to two. Squad sizes have also been increased by one to 17. Tom Moody, CPL’s International Director of Cricket, said the changes were designed to further improve the quality of the competition. “Our aim each year is to make CPL even bigger and better so that we can attract the best T20 players in the world and make it as entertaining as possible for the fans,” the Australian said. “Over the past few months, we’ve worked alongside the franchise owners to make sure that the 2016 player draft is open and competitive so that the buzz and excitement of CPL will start building from January right through to the tournament launch in the summer.” He added: “From early January 2016, we’ll start to reveal the franchise marquee players and the retained players so that by the time the draft comes around in February fans will already have plenty to talk about.” CPL involves six franchises:- Barbados Tridents, Guyana Amazon Warriors, Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel, Jamaica Tallawahs, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and St Lucia Zouks – vying for the title of regional T20 champions. Red Steel are defending champions after beating Tridents in last year’s final in Port of Spain. The tournament is heading into its fourth year.last_img read more

first_imgBournemouth striker Josh King: Time to find consistencyby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveBournemouth striker Josh King says they need to find consistency.King has featured in all four games as the Cherries have taken four points from their first four games – a tally matched in their first two seasons in the top flight.The 27-year-old frontman netted from the spot to pave the way for the 2-1 win at Aston Villa and was also involved in the 1-1 draw with Sheffield United on the opening day.Asked for his opinion on their start, King told afcb.co.uk: “It’s been a very mixed bag. I thought we let ourselves down against Sheffield United. We should have beaten them but didn’t perform at our highest level.“We played a high-performance and energetic game against Aston Villa and won.“I thought we put in a good performance against Manchester City and them and Liverpool are the two best teams in the league.“I didn’t think anyone played well against Leicester and we all knew it. It’s in the back of everyone’s mind that it was a bad performance and we want to make it right against Everton.“They have made a few new signings and have a good team. Moise Kean and Alex Iwobi are two good acquisitions and Richarlison is playing well and scoring goals.“Every time we play Everton, it’s a good game to watch. We’re both attacking and both box to box which is probably why they have put it on television on Sunday.“We haven’t performed how we should have in the first four games and maybe the international break came at a good time because we can regroup and focus on Sunday because we need three points.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Carriers on SCFI Routes Earn 7 Pct Less in 2016

first_imgzoom Due to the devastating low rates in the first half of 2016, container shipping lines earned an average of 7% less, than in 2015 on all Shanghai Containerized Freight Index (SCFI) trade routes, according to BIMCO.The freight rates managed to gain momentum through second half of 2016, and were 22% higher than the rates received in the same period a year earlier, due to measures taken from the shipping lines in terms of network optimisation, scrapping and more careful deployment around the peak season.As the freight rates increased, two thirds of the trades on the SCFI closed 2016 at a higher rate than in 2015 and three trade routes hit the highest USD per TEU for a week 52 in more than five years, including trades from Shanghai to Santos, Durban and Australia/New Zealand.BIMCO said that the China Containerised Freight Index (CCFI), reflecting China’s nationwide export of containers, is showing a 19% drop from 2015 to 2016.“Despite the average rate for 2016 is lower than 2015, 2016 might stand out for something positive, where the container shipping lines took some of the measures needed to adapt to the new normal, where the growth in demand is equal to the GDP,” Peter Sand, BIMCO’s Chief Shipping Analyst, said.If the Trade-to-GDP-Multiplier stays at the current level and the International Monetary Fund is correct with their projection, the container shipping industry will be status quo in 2017 and the freight rates will most likely stay at the same level as last half of 2016.However, Sand said that the container shipping lines will increasingly focus on reaping the benefits of consolidation and “we will most certainly see their profits go up.”last_img read more
