Cheltenham Festival race” (CC BY-SA 2.0) by Carine06

Thoroughbred racehorses are named after all sorts of things these days, and Paisley residents will claim Paisley Park as one of their own after winning the JLT Long Walk Hurdle over the Christmas period.

Victory in the three-mile festive feature race at Ascot was a first-ever Grade 1 success for connections of the seven-year-old bay Oscar gelding. Although trained in Wiltshire by Emma Lavelle and more likely to be named after the home of the late American pop sensation Prince, Paisley Park has thus emerged as a leading home hope for the Stayers’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

Racehorse owner Andrew Gemmell plotted a campaign taking in handicaps at Aintree and Haydock en route to Ascot. In the Long Walk, Paisley Park was held-up well in touch andpushed along after three out making smooth progress before the penultimate flight to lead soon after the last. All jockey Aidan Coleman had to do then was drive his mount out to score by a cosy couple of lengths.

Bookmakers reacted to the sensational victory in a race where established staying sorts either failed to complete or disappointed by slashing Paisley Park’s price for the Stayers’ Hurdle in half. He is now best ante post odds of 12/1 with Ladbrokes – one of many firms that are sure to have 2019 Cheltenham Festival special betting offers aplenty come March.

There is some stiff competition in the Stayers’ Hurdle to be sure. And, the open nature of the race means there is some value to be found away from the favourites. Joining Paisley Park in what can be termed as value bets include: Next Destination at 16/1 (BetBright), Midnight Shadow at 20/1 (Betfair) and Black Op at 20/1 (Betfair). The latter had a couple of disappointing runs over the winter, but the fact the 8-year-old is as low as 11/1 with some bookies shows Black Op is still highly respected.

However, the plan is now to send Paisley Park to contest that other three-mile Grade 1 race at the Prestbury Park venue in the Cotswolds and he might just represent Britain’s best hope. He begins 2019 as the shortest price British trained potential runner in a market dominated by Irish raiders.

Strength-in-depth with Irish stayers

Horses from the Emerald Isle have won the last two renewals of the Stayers’ Hurdle, so it’s no real surprise to see the head of the betting packed with those trained there. Among Paisley Park’s possible opponents are reigning champion Penhill, who came to the Cheltenham Festival last year with no prep raceand still delivered for Willie Mullins.

While Penhill is a top-price 7/1 ante post favourite with Coral to retain his Stayers’ crown, Gordon Elliott trained wonder mare Apple’s Jade is likely to have an entry after winning the Grade 1 Christmas Hurdle during the four-day festive meeting at Leopardstown. Owners Gigginstown House Stud tend to keep her against her own sex and drop back in trip for the 2m 4f Mares’ Hurdle, however, and that explains why bookmakers are as big as 10/1 in places but short as 3/1 elsewhere.

Gigginstown are also represented by Samcro in the market, yet he is a best price of 12/1 with Betfair after disappointing in three winless starts this season. Connections look to havewritten the campaign off and go again with novice chasing in the autumn. If neither of these oppose Paisley Park, then there’s no way his current odds will be available on the day of the Stayers’ Hurdle.

Ireland still holds a strong hand in the versatile and consistent Grade 1 performer Supasundae, however, who is a top-price 10/1 with Boylesports for this race after chasing Penhill home in last year’s renewal. This longer trip may be more to the Jessica Harrington trained gelding’s tastes now he’s a nine-year-old.

The same can be said of popular veteran Faugheen, who fell in the Christmas Hurdle but looked the force of old when beating Penhill by 13 lengths at the Punchestown Festival in April. Mullins’ other mount is 12/1 for Stayers’ success come Cheltenham where he’s previously won the Champion Hurdle and Ballymore for novices.

Paisley isn’t exactly known for opulent palaces or stately gentleman’s clubs, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of places to feel like a million pounds. The city and the surrounding area has long been home to titans of industry and well-heeled members of the nobility, who have left a legacy that everyone in Paisley can enjoy today. If you want to spend a day feeling like royalty, here’s where to go. 

Stately Homes 

When it comes to magnificently opulent homes, you can’t do much better than the Ardgowan Estate, just outside of town. This sprawling country pile has served as a film set for countless blockbuster films, with pretty much every big UK star having shot a BBC historical drama at least once here. The 300-year old estate is so over-the-top that it makes Downton Abbey look like a studio flat. It’s the perfect place for a member of the public to wander around the 100 or so rooms for an afternoon, pretending to be aristocracy.

For a more modern and unusual setting, see if you can arrange a day at the historic Formakin House, located close to the city centre. This early 20th-century mansion was built by an eccentric millionaire who made a fortune almost overnight on the stock market. The gothic pile is a curious blend of traditional Scottish architecture and more avant-garde styles of the era. This decadent homestead is a great place to feel like royalty.

Feeling special is about more than being in wealthy surroundings – an air of exclusivity is often necessary as well. If you want to feel like a member of the upper echelons, Paisley has some enticing options for you. To hobnob with the elite while experiencing some of the best golf on the planet, a membership to the exclusive Paisley Golf Club is an absolute necessity.

If you’re unable to blag your way into the hallowed grounds of the Paisley Golf Club, there are other options available to make you feel like a VVIP (Very Very Important Person). If you’re looking for some Monte Carlo-style glamour, as well as exclusive membership activities such as trips to Miami and Lapland, then signing up for a leading VIP Casino like Mr Green’s Club Royale is always an option. You’ll feel well-heeled wherever you are, without the stately golf club fees.

Drinking & Dining 

If you really want to drink and dine like its the last days of Versailles, head to the historic Cristal Restaurant at Mar Hall, which features all of the high ceilings, chandeliers, haute cuisine and £3000 bottles of champagne you could ever wish for. It doesn’t get much more regal than that. 

But for an indulgent night of fine dining and good wine in Paisley that’s a little more affordable, look no further than Pendulum on Gauze Street. For the ultimate gastronomic experience, make sure to try and book yourself a table, which features innovative contemporary Scottish fare in elegant surroundings. 

Paisley isn’t your typical luxury destination, but the rich local history and thriving cultural scene mean that there’s something for everybody, no matter what your tastes might be.

The festive season is a fun time for most people for many reasons. People are usually happier than usual because they get more time off work, get to spend time with their family, or look forward to the endless parties. However, this time of the year is also when people can become victims of crime. Unfortunately, there are people out there who want to take advantage and create misfortune for those out to simply have a good time.

In order to prevent your Christmas holidays from turning sour, try and stay as safe as possible. With that in mind, below are a few tips for staying safe.

Outdoor Safety

During the holidays, it isn’t uncommon to find that your things go missing or items get stolen. A safety tip would be to keep your valuables hidden at all times. It could be anything from expensive jewellery to gadgets that could draw the attention of criminals.

When walking on the pavement, you should always try and face oncoming traffic as it would make it harder for you to get your property stolen by two-wheelers. In addition to this, listen and be aware of your surroundings, especially at night, which means leaving the headphones at home.

Another tip to try is to make sure you move in groups of twos or more when going out to paint the town red this Christmas. At night especially, you want to try and be aware of your surroundings and avoid going places alone, especially areas that are unusually dark and quiet. Doing so should help make you feel safer and mitigate the chances of you being attacked or mugged.

For those who drink, remember to avoid driving and organise a taxi or public transport instead. Ultimately, it’s good to try and drink as responsibly as you can to avoid finding yourself in dangerous or harmful situations.

If you happen to be in an area or situation where things are getting rowdy, or you find yourself in the middle of a compromising situation, it may be best to leave. In the case that a conflict spirals out of control at any time and you’re arrested, the best thing to do would be to reach out to legal professionals such as criminal law solicitors London as they could help you resolve any legal complications.

Christmas Decorations

Fire safety is also a big one during Christmas, so remember to replace your alarm batteries and test it to ensure it’s working effectively. If you’re big on decorating, then other Christmas safety advice is to make sure your fairy lights are safe. You can do so by replacing any bulbs that blow, turn them off before bed and avoid overloading sockets.

Additionally, you want to try and make sure any decorations that you choose don’t burn easily, and you keep them away from lights, heaters and anything else that could trigger a fire.

Christmas should be a period filled with love, joy and happiness. However, accidents or mishaps could make it turn for the worst, so do all that you can to prevent them from happening. Hopefully, the above tips coupled with your intuition will make this Christmas the safest and most memorable one yet.

Security is a key priority when you run a business, especially online. Cyber-crime is an issue that is becoming more prevalent, and hackers are continuously developing ways to steal information from your business. Information that gets into the wrong hands can be damaging, so keeping your business protected online is essential. If you are wondering where to begin, here are five easy tips to get started.

 

  • Robust Anti-Virus Software – Make sure your anti-virus software is up to the job, and has all the features you require to protect your business. Threats can come from different places online, such as through emails, malware, and SQL attacks. This is when a multi-layered protection system comes into its own, such as from Sonicwall.

 

 

 

  • Regular Updates – You should always update anti-virus software regularly, as new developments make it better able to keep up with changing forms of online threat.

 

 

 

  • Encrypt WebsitesEncryption is used to make the data that is stored by your website undecipherable. It does this by turning it into an abstract code, and the only way to make it readable is if another party has the ‘key’ that unlocks the code. Encryption is added protection that can prevent hackers from getting access to sensitive information. Your web hosting company will be able to give you advice on encrypting your website, if you are unsure where to start.

 

 

 

  • Password Security – Have you noticed that when you are asked to create a password these days, you are often required to choose one that has over a certain amount of letters, must have at least one capital, use numbers as well as characters? There is a good reason for this. Hackers that try to get access to password protected areas may try combinations of common words, such as Password1. Easy to guess passwords will be quick to overcome, whereas having a broad range within a password is more difficult to crack.

 

 

 

  • Regular Back-Ups – When you back-up your files, you are saving yourself any hassle and potential irreversible damage, should your website or network be compromised. Ransom attacks are one form of cyber-attack that uses malware to harm your website and software you may be running. It is called ‘ransom’ attack, because a hacker will demand a sum of money for the malware to be removed. Having your files backed up to an external source means that you don’t have to bend to the demands of a ransom attack, saving you time consuming and costly work.

 

 

Keeping your business protected online is a key part of security, not just from the initial threat of cyber-crime. When done correctly, online protection helps your business to grow. This is because a well-protected business is trustworthy to its customers, because they know that the information you hold about them is safe. With ever more sophisticated ways that hackers use to gain access to information, keeping up-to-date with the best ways of protecting your business is a must.

Hospitals are supposed to be places that safeguard our health and wellbeing, but unfortunately there have been a number of cases over the years of children being abused by hospital staff while in their care.

 

In recognition of this, the government launched a new system at the end of 2014 to facilitate better sharing of information between health and social care professionals and help protect children at risk of abuse.

 

The Child Protection – Information Sharing project (CP-IS) brings together various IT systems to ensure staff have complete access to records of all of a child’s interactions with health and social care services, making it easier to recognise and support children at risk of abuse.

 

But what can you do if you suspect a child is being abused or is at risk of abuse?

 

Reporting child abuse to your local council

 

If you believe a child is being abused or is at risk of being abused, you can contact your local council and report the abuse. This will then be investigated by the council’s social care team.

 

More information on how to contact your local council to report child abuse can be found on the government’s website.

 

Report child abuse to the police

 

If you believe a child is at immediate risk of being abused in hospital, you should contact the police to trigger an urgent intervention.

 

Call 999 if you believe a child is being abused or is about to be abused.

 

Call 101 if you wish to report abuse that you believe has already taken place.

 

Speak to the NSPCC

 

If you have concerns, but are not sure what the appropriate action is to take it, you can contact the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) for advice and support.

 

When to report suspicions of child abuse

 

Many people make the mistake of waiting to report their suspicions because they are not sure whether or not abuse has taken place. This risks missing the opportunity to prevent abuse or further abuse, so it is important to take immediate action if you think a child may be at risk of abuse.

The signs of child abuse vary from case to case and can be hard to spot, but common things to look out for include:

 

  • Unexplained changes in behaviour, such as becoming quiet, secretive or withdrawn
  • Reluctance to be left alone with particular medical staff
  • Use of sexual language
  • Unexpected knowledge of sexual information

 

Take a look at the NSPCC’s website for more information on the signs of child abuse.

 

Claiming compensation for child abuse in a hospital

 

Hospitals and their staff owe a duty of care to their patients, so if you or a loved one have been the victim of abuse in a hospital or other care setting, you may be entitled to compensation. Claiming compensation is often the only way to fund the help and support you need, such as counselling, as well as helping you to cope with the other ways in which being an abuse survivor can impact your life.

 

If you believe you may be entitled to compensation, we recommend speaking to a legal team with specific experience handling claims related to abuse in hospitals to ensure you get the sensitive, expert support you need.

Research is showing that household debt in the UK continues to grow at astronomical rates, and the government is trying to curb the trend and find solutions to this growing overspending epidemic. According to recent research, the average debt for UK citizens is now reaching a whopping £60,000, and there are no signs of this slowing down. Over this year, the average citizen has accrued an additional £870 in debt. This new reality has given rise to a whole host of alternative lending solutions and more demand than ever for debt management services. It’s also changing the relationship UK citizens have with finances and prompting more of them to adjust their spending habits accordingly.

Personal Debt Behind the Rise in Bankruptcies

It has been reported that over 270 people per day are currently forced to declare bankruptcy due to their high personal debt load. Credit card spending is also a main culprit in the country, which reached a grand total of £17b in the month of October alone. Charities and financial organisations are trying to help UK citizens be more aware of the dangers of credit card debt and look for alternatives instead.

The Rise of Alternative Lending Options

Lower credit scores and availability has given rise to a variety of alternative lending options that allow UK citizens to access favourable loans even with a less than stellar credit situation. Online lenders in particular tend to be more lenient with terms and allow applicants to apply for short term loans much more easily. Online loan brokerage services will even allow applicants to apply at one place and save them the trouble of having to look online for loans by connecting them with a wide variety of different lenders. This allows people with a rocky credit history to access the best interest rates and get a loan that works within their terms. The process is also much simpler than traditional lending solutions and the speed and ease through which applicants can access their funds is another reason many decide to turn to online lenders such as Cash Lady instead.

Low Income Households are Suffering the Most

PriceWaterhouseCoopers analysts also found out that low income households are the hardest hit when it comes to household debt and are also the most affected by the rise in interest rates. Debt levels are increasing at a much higher rate than economic growth, which is a growing cause of concern.

Problem is Not Limited to the UK

However, this issue is not limited to the UK, but is actually part of a bigger trend globally. Debt rates have been soaring worldwide and are at risk of causing a global financial crisis. More and more households are now feeling the crunch and find themselves unable to pay prior debt while accumulating more debt to cope with their immediate needs.

Consumer debt is a growing cause for concern for officials and we can expect more and more actions to be taken to resolve the situation. Either way, monitoring consumer spending is something each and every one of us have to be mindful of if we want to see any change.

It only takes a quick Google search for jobs to get a picture of the variety of employment opportunities that there are; from agricultural workers to brain surgeons and everything in between, the diversity is rich. However, all are united by the fact that they are governed by strict employment laws that protect the workers and the employers from abuse.

Here are two of the most frequently asked questions that employment solicitors such as Spencers Solicitors regularly deal with:

I’ve been sacked, what rights do I have?

If you have been employed for over a year, you have the right not to be unfairly dismissed. In employment law, there are five reasons that an employer can dismiss you for:

  • Redundancy when the business is closing
  • Capability to fulfil the role e.g. skills and aptitude
  • Competency to perform the role
  • Illegality such as theft
  • Or another substantial reason

Your employer must be able to demonstrate that their decision to sack you was reasonable and that statutory procedures have been followed. If you have not breached any of these criteria, or your employers have not followed disciplinary procedures, this can be an area to pursue for unfair dismissal.

I’ve received a formal grievance from work, what can I do?

Any grievance that has been raised needs to be investigated by the employer – this has been a requirement since 2004. You can insist on having a meeting to discuss the issues being raised. This can be an opportunity to identify witnesses or documents that you may have that can assist you. It can be helpful for you to have legal representation with you or a union member to provide you with additional support and prevent you from saying anything that may harm your position. Once the investigation has been completed, your employer will tell you of its decision. You can appeal their decision if you remain unhappy with the outcome.

Employment law directs the relationship between employer and employee, and while it covers many areas, they all share the goal of protection. Here are the most common reasons for employment law:

  • Prevent discrimination
  • Ensure health and safety in the workplace
  • Ensure fair economic recompense for workers’ time and skills
  • Reduce risk of disruption due to dispute

In short, employment law enables businesses to run effectively and efficiently while providing a safe and fair working environment for its employees. This does not mean, however, that issues do not occur; often problems arise when the legal position is not clear. It can be incredibly stressful when you think that you have been dealt with unfairly by employers, but there are laws to protect you.

It is important that you keep records of any communication that you have with your employer: forward emails to your personal address or if this against company policy, print them off, and always make contemporaneous notes of phone calls and meetings. You need to collect evidence of the breakdown of the relationship and the role that you have played in it. Good luck!

Due to technological advancement, education has undergone various reforms in many countries. However, are these modernized approaches better than the traditional ones?

What is The Modernized Approach to Education

In the words of ex-President Nelson Mandela, “education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Suffice to say, to change the world you need to be properly schooled. This emphasizes the importance of education and begs the question — are educational institutes really training the next generation to change the world?

 

For many years now, education has been considered as a pedagogical teacher-student relationship, whereby the teacher‘s role is to choose which skill or information to impart. In addition, the traditional approach to education, where a lot of data is crumped into the syllabus with a short timeframe, compels students to memorize large quantities of information without understanding it, just to pass their tests. As a result, we have a sad reality where students graduate with little to no knowledge and lack of creativity. That is why the advent of the modernization of education is so paramount.

What is the modernized approach to education?

It is simply the use of technology with the goal of improving the quality of education. Due to technological advancement, the traditional approach to education could no longer suffice, which calls for the need to develop the ways of schooling.

 

This is not to say that the conventional educational approach is utterly ineffective. At the very least, the traditional system brought up presidents, lawyers, doctors, and so many great professionals that it would be unreasonable to call it “ineffective”. Yet our society undergoes constant change, creating positions that simply cannot be filled by the products of the old educational principles. In this article, we will establish the merits of modernized education over the traditional one, as well as modern trends in education.

Advantages of Modern Education System Over The Conventional One

 

Better Teaching Materials

Unlike the traditional methods that are restrictive and textbook-based, the modernized educational system offers a wide range of teaching materials to facilitate the learning process. Those include videos, graphs, audios, virtual reality experience, etc. Today’s modern classrooms are equipped with smartboards, projectors, and flat-screen TVs to help students visualize and understand better what’s being taught. In addition, the smart boards are provided with built-in tools such as browsers, PowerPoint, media players, and many more.

Improvement upon the Subject of Study
In order to prepare students for this technologically advanced age,new subjects such as Nanotechnology, Video Game Design, and Robotics Engineering have been introduced to the educational system. They help the teens establish the foundation for computer usage abilities and contribute to the development of newly discovered fields.

Better Understanding of Topics

Unlike the conventional approach whereby students are obliged to cram large volumes of information without understanding, the modernized approach offers many advanced tools that are designed to help students actually grasp the topic. How so? Students are being exposed to better teaching materials and techniques. In addition, the stream of information on the Internet is abundant, and students nowadays can access it to understand how to do their assignments.

 

That being said, it’s indisputable that the life of a student is very active, and so completing tasks sometimes becomes a problem. More often than not, the kids who can’t handle all the homework turn to professional writing services like https://buy-cheapessay.com/ to get assistance with their tasks. It goes as another advantage of the modern time — the ability to delegate less significant or dull issues to someone who finds no trouble in solving them. Some may consider it as cheating, but it can actually help students improve their writing and develop good problem-solving character traits.

 

Developing The Mind And Improving Creativity

The use of modern teaching and learning techniques helps to develop the minds of students. This is because the advanced educational approach is student-centered. For example, the collective method of teaching allows students to work in groups when solving problems. This, in turn, develops students to be problem solvers instead of settling with someone feeding them solutions. Also, it’s been proven that students learn best from colleagues which is a principle of team-based learning.

 

Secondly, when students are given assignments that require them to use new technology, it is necessary for them to research the ways of mastering said technology in order to get good grades. That contributes to developing self-learning skills as well as becoming more adept in the modern world.

 

Modern Trends in Education

The modernization of education has widely spread around the world, even in developing countries, to the point where some workable and effective trends have emerged. The current trends in educationinclude:

 

Constructive struggling
Learning with technology
Degree qualification
Highly qualified teachers
Vocational training
Gamification
Collective learning
Personalized learning
Blended learning
Online schooling
Social networking
Classical education
Flexible learning
Flipped learning

 

In conclusion, education is the key to further advancement of the human race. As such, we need to ensure that the upcoming generations are getting prepared the right way. When comparing the modernized educational approach to the conventional methods, it becomes evident that the former has more benefits for students than the latter.

Academic writing has one style, companywriting another, blog writing one more.

When you’re launching a new business in the modern age, there are a lot of factors to take into account. As well as the necessities of online visibility, modern marketing techniques, and hiring the right team members, it’s essential that you factor in the right design elements into your business premises. No matter what industry or sector your entrepreneurial venture lands in, having an eye on the concept of design could mean the difference between success and failure. If you want to reduce your running costs and make the most of your potential, then these business design ideas could transform your potential.

Alternative Space

One of the first factors that you need to take into account is your business premises. While manufacturers and industrial business will have more limitations when it comes to acceptable premises usage, some sectors can benefit from a more flexible office decision. Shared office spaces are growing in popularity, and with their low-costs and highly efficient benefits, they could be the answer to reducing your rental costs.

Alternative Energy

Solar and wind power are great, but they are largely impractical for the majority of business spaces. For manufacturers especially, the high energy costs can have a huge impact on your monthly outgoings. If your premises are more remote, then your energy bills are going to be high. Consider cost-effective solutions, with many manufacturers and industrialists making the decision to transition to LNG due to its accessibility, convenience, and reduced cost.

 

What is LNG? Liquified natural gas is a low-cost and convenient energy alternative, and you can click here for more information about this popular option.

Alternative Color

A paint job might not seem like it will change much, but there’s a reason why designers place such importance of color scheme. Color affects both mood and productivity. Avoid the bland magnolia options and look instead at blues for greater productivity, splashes of red and orange for a more energetic workspace or even yellow to reduce boredom and increase happiness. These simple psychological tricks can transform any working environment.

 

Alternative Accessories

Filling your workplace with the right accessories can have a number of benefits. There are traditional and well-recognized options like the right plants, which can aid productivity and even help keep the air in your workspace cleaner. You should also consider branding your accessories, with a huge variety of options available to help your work environment have a more professional and consistent branding strategy. Not only will branded accessories reinforce your branding and create a focused base of operations, but they can also be a good first impression for when prospective clients come through the door.

Alternative Workers

Long gone are the days of the traditional commute. As remote workers become the standard for those hoping to offer a more flexible workspace, and technology allows for easier project collaboration, having 9-5 workers in-house may not be the best option. You are now able to combine both full-time workers that are in the office every day, with a range of remote workers who will appreciate the greater flexibility and the loss of the daily commute.

 

If you’re considering a business launch then it’s tempting to stick with what you know, and what has worked traditionally. Modern technology has transformed the business world as much as it’s changed our personal lives, and incorporating modern solutions into any business plan can increase your flexibility and potential to grow.
