Mondays are the worst day to take off for parents who work part-time: this is common family Facebook chat wisdom. Take off Mondays and you’ll miss out on bank holidays, the argument goes. But is that actually true? When you’re deciding whether to apply to work from home, or part-time work, which day is best to isolate as the ideal day “off”? The good news is that this is a good time to be contemplating flexible work, an arrangement where the employee has moderate control over how, where or when they work.

Doctors caring for Tafida Raqeeb at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel say she has permanent brain damage, no chance of recovery, and believe life-support treatment should stop. Bosses at Barts Health NHS Trust, which runs the hospital, want a judge to decide what is in the little girl’s best interests. Tafida’s parents, who live in Newham, east London, want to move her to Gaslini children’s hospital in Genoa, Italy, and have organised funding. Her mother, solicitor Shelina Begum, 39, and father, construction consultant Mohammed Raqeeb, 45, say doctors there will keep providing life-support treatment until Tafida is diagnosed as being brain dead. Mr … [Read more...] about Judge must decide what is best for Tafida, say hospital bosses
If you have had a realistic look at all the expenses of the coming academic year and know you cannot cover it out of savings and/or earnings then it is time to look at credit options.Whether you are a student looking for a loan or a parent wanting to offer financial support, it is always worth paying a visit to your credit union. There is a good reason they are often a young adult’s first source of finance, they offer huge flexibility.

Janna Herron USA TODAY Published 11:56 AM EDT May 22, 2019 With a diploma in hand, where’s your post-college life going to take you? If you’re looking for a city with good jobs, a vibrant social scene that’s also affordable, you might not look much further than your alma mater, according to a ranking from rental platform Apartment List given exclusively to USA TODAY. Many of the top 10 cities that received A-minus to A-plus grades were also home to sizable colleges, such as the University of Wisconsin-Madison, North Carolina State University and Texas Tech University. “A lot of cities we found that were best for college grads were pretty good college towns themselves,” says Igor Popov, chief economist at Apartment List. “You might think people want something entirely different, but people could be happy to stay there in their 20s and early 30s and still do well economically.” Five other cities also received A- grades, but their overall … [Read more...] about Graduation 2019: Which cities are best for college grads?
