Arsène Wenger does not believe he is ready to manage against Arsenal yet, having taken charge of the club for the final time on Sunday. The 68-year-old’s tenure ended with victory over Huddersfield Town, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s first-half goal enough to secure Arsenal’s first points away from home this calendar year. Wenger intends to remain in management and claims to have already received numerous offers from other clubs, but he does not yet feel emotionally prepared to face his employers of the last 22 years.

Special services at home
A scheme which allows people to recover at home rather than in hospital following surgery has been praised by one of its first patients. James Millett, 77, was one of the first patients to be treated by the Hospital at Home team from Southmead Hospital. The scheme was launched at the hospital, which is part of North Bristol Trust, in January this year. And on Tuesday, May 8, the team treated their 100th patient. The aim of the service is to provide acute healthcare to patients in the comfort of their own home, but it is also helping to relieve some of the pressure on beds at the hospital. Each patient gets a personalised care plan which can be delivered at home by a team of specially trained nurses and there is also a 24 hour hub telephone number patients are given if they need advice outside of visits from the nursing team. For Mr Millett, 77, it allowed him to recover in the comfort of his own home and he was treated with antibiotics via an intravenous IV in his kitchen. Speaking at … [Read more...] about How Bristol hospital patients are being allowed to recover at home
I've heard a lot of horror stories from home about huge deposits needed and crazy bidding wars on substandard property - so at the moment buying here in Europe makes a lot more sense. My question is about the first-time buyer initiative in Ireland (that is, the Help-to-Buy scheme). Would I lose out on that if I bought here in Europe - and if I would, how big of a loss would that be? As I'm not paying tax in Ireland at the moment, if I moved home would I even be able to avail of the help-to-buy scheme? (I did pay tax for a few years after university). Also, if I moved home after buying an apartment in Europe, and rented out the apartment here, would I pay tax on the rental income - if it's just covering the mortgage? Finally, the Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is much lower here than at home, so if I bought an apartment here, moved home, and then sold the apartment, which country's tax would I fall under (that is, which country's CGT would I need to pay)? Am I better off continuing to … [Read more...] about Is it best to buy flat abroad or at home?

There’s a steady drizzle in Helsinki and the temperature is -9ºC. In bad weather, 41-year-old social worker Sami Seppila keeps the children indoors. But as soon as they can, they get out for some fresh air. This is Finland, and if you’re capable of dressing your child warmly – not an easy task, Sami jokes – getting out is a blessing. When the rain lets up, they make for a muddy park surrounded by long red brick chimneys, functional Scandinavian houses and a Lutheran cathedral. Sami is alone with his two small children, partly because their mother works late, but mostly because he wants it that way. Sami is one of 4% of fathers who have chosen to take full advantage of their paternity leave. When his eldest child was born four years ago, he took 11 months off to look after him. Now, with his one-year-old, he is planning to take more. “It’s been the best decision of my life,” he booms over the noise of nearby pneumatic drill. Understandable, … [Read more...] about “Daddy, why not stay at home if you can?”
