Twist and Stack Your Way to #FESTIVALready Style with the PANDORA Jewellery Festival Collection

In Writing (all kinds) on March 23, 2016 at 7:19 PM

PANDORA Jewellery Joins the 2016 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival

BALTIMORE, March 23, 2016 /CNW/ – PANDORA Jewellery has teamed up with the Coachella Music and Arts Festival as the festival’s exclusive 2016 jewellery sponsor. To help music-lovers amp up their everyday style and get festival ready, PANDORA is launching the PANDORA Jewellery Festival Collection, available in select stores and on PANDORA.net beginning March 17.

The PANDORA Jewellery Festival Collection, inspired by Coachella, gives festival-goers a chance to take personal style to the max. The collection has been curated to help express whatever look you’re going for and to add unexpected accents by stacking, knotting and twisting with PANDORA Jewellery’s unique and colorful leather bracelets.

Festival goers are invited to escape the desert heat and enter the PANDORA crystal mirage and wander through the unexpected. Recharge, take some selfies, and accessorize your festival style with one of PANDORA’s leather bracelets. A/C, charging stations and Wi-Fi will also be available for the ultimate reprieve. The PANDORA Jewellery Festival Collection will be on display and select items will be available for sale at the Festival the weekends of April 15-17 and April 22-24.

To help consumers prepare for the concert of the year, Lifestyle Expert, Janette Ewen has developed the following tips to master the festival style of your choice.

Janette Ewen’s Style Tips

  • Look Effortless: The key to keeping the look effortless, the most important thing to remember is to not look overdone—it’s a music festival not a costume party.
  • Love the Leather: From leather ankle booties to fringed jackets, leather is the stand out material. PANDORA Jewellery’s collection of leather wrap bracelets hit the mark for this look. Wear them layered in a number of shades and add some charms (including the Angelic Feathers charm and Feathered clip), to personalize your style.
  • Go Galactic: Style your fantasy-look with accessories that are inspired by the sun, moon and stars. Galactic-inspired headbands, whimsical footwear and PANDORA’s leather wrap bracelets complete with cosmic charms like Twinkling Light clip and Pavé Lights charm, add fun and playfulness to the look.

Self-creators are encouraged to share their festival style with hashtag #FESTIVALready on their social channels and view the collection online at PANDORA.net. Connect with us and join the conversation via FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

ZODIAC SIGNS PREDICTIONS FOR THE WEEK 21st MAR – 27th MAR 2016

In Writing (all kinds) on March 19, 2016 at 9:25 AM

new_500

Aries ( 21 March – 19 April ) – Your popularity remains high; your understanding and wisdom flow; and you remain lucky in love, far travel, legal, educational or media concerns. Your energy and effectiveness will keep you in the race. Ideal time for you to pursue financial and intimate  matters. Work at a steady pace. Love, romance, beauty, pleasure and joy from children bring a thread of relief from the chores that surround you. If you’re attached, this week brings cozy reassurance. If you’re single, this week urges you to touch base with your inner self. Favorable Date : Mar 23 Favorable Color : Red

Taurus ( 20 April – 20 May ) – Your energy, charisma and effectiveness rise high giving you the ability to cope with some major obstacles that have existed in the past. Study is under favourable influences and this would be a good time to look into courses, promotions and new contracts. A face you did not think to be your ally is set to pleasantly surprise you.  Life in fact is about to prove to you that nothing is what it seems and that good things are indeed worth fighting for. Time spent with persons of opposite sex can help you see the lighter side of life. Favorable Date : Mar 22 Favorable Color : Yellow

Gemini ( 21 May – 20 June) – You have a lot to ponder especially about education, foreign travel, legal matters or a cultural prospect. Don’t be rushed into anything. The week ahead is a good time to act on investment, debt, finance, security, charity and spiritual matters – but it’s a poor time to seek attention, praise or romance. Shy away from anything that demands a vibrant or charismatic presence on your part. Your cool logic, innovative ideas, and analytical skills should come in handy as you figure out what to do next.

Celebrating 10 Years Of Planet Africa Magazine

There’s an African proverb that says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”  These simple words overflow with wisdom and truth. The release of this edition marks the 10th Anniversary of Planet Africa Magazine! The team and I are proud of this milestone, and we couldn’t have done it without you – our readers, our dear friends. It has truly been an awesome journey since our inaugural issue, which was published back in October 2005!

I am delighted by the opportunity the Editorial Board has accorded to my wife and associate Patricia Bebia Mawa, who has been the Editorial Director of this publication from the beginning. In addition to running a cutting-edge publishing, broadcast, marketing and event management organization, we are now set to launch a 24-hour television channel, having recently acquired Afroglobal Television, where I had been a shareholder as well. We are also delighted to share profiles of recipients of the 2015 Planet Africa Awards.

It is an honour to channel our collective pride in the accomplishments of our distinguished recipients. Categories include Professional Excellence, Enterprise, Leadership, Entertainment, Nelson Mandela Humanitarian Award, Volunteer, Media, Renaissance, Heritage, Development, Science & Technology, Marcus Garvey Memorial Award, Rising Star, Academics, Visionary and Lifetime Achievements.  Exemplary role models, we honour them for making a profound difference in the lives of our people.

We present talented Fashion Designer Adebayo Jones’ spectacular designs as showcased at the 2015 African Fashion Week in Toronto. In our spotlight is ‘Empire’ star Taraji P. Henson. We share the empowering story of US President Barack Obama’s journey to Kenya, his Fatherland. We are also pleased to feature Cross River State Governor Professor Ben Ayade’s Inauguration. We examine the work of Cuso International, along with the strides that the development organization is making to impact lives in Calabar, Nigeria and other places of the world. We present the courtship and marriage of Osho and Alan Edison, plus beauty, fitness, food, entrepreneurship, books, inspirational stories and much more.

The universal law of going far together pertains to all facets of life. These include work, school, home and others. We need to be united in mind and purpose more than ever before. Thanks to everyone who has included our magazine in their lives, especially those who have read each issue cover to cover. We sincerely appreciate our advertisers, subscribers, photographers, writers and other contributors. We look forward to a brighter future of inspiration and entertainment, laid out for you on the pages of Planet Africa, other publications, along with all of our other media platforms.

Hello community massive,
 
Do you know somebody who would benefit from this information. Please share and thanks.

Financial Support for Child Care
How to get government subsidies and grants to help you pay for child care or to support children with special needs.
On this page

Ontario child care subsidy
Families can apply for the Ontario child care subsidy. The cost of this program is shared by the Ontario government, municipal governments and First Nations communities.
Eligibility
You can apply if your child is under 13 years old (or up to 18 years old if your child has special needs) and in either:
·        a licensed child care program
·        a school-aged child enrolled in an approved recreation program
·        a before- and after-school program operated directly by a school board
Note: The Child Care and Early Years Act (CCEYA) came into effect on August 31, 2015. The CCEYA defines “child” as a person who is younger than 13 years old. Children with special needs who are already in the child care system or enter the child care system by August 31, 2017 will be eligible to receive funding and financial assistance under CCEYA until they reach 18 years of age, provided that they meet other eligibility criteria that is unrelated to age.
Funding
The amount you pay for child care depends on your family’s adjusted net income.
To calculate your net income:
·        take your net income amount on line 236 of the Canada Revenue Agency personal income tax form
Then subtract:
·        any federal Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) payments (the UCCB is not considered in determining a family’s child care fee subsidy)
How to apply
The ministry provides funding for fee subsidies. To apply for the child care subsidy or to get more information about this program, please contact your local:
·        local band office administrator (for First Nations)
Ontario Child Benefit
The Ontario Child Benefit (OCB) helps low-to-moderate income families – whether they are working or not – to provide for their children.
Eligibility
Depending on your family income, you may qualify for the OCB, if you:
·        are the primary caregiver of a child under 18
·        are a resident of Ontario
·        have filed and had assessed your previous year’s income tax return, and so has your spouse or common-law partner, and
·        have registered your child for the federal Canada Child Tax Benefit
How to apply
There is no application required for the OCB.
Funding changes
Starting July 2015, the OCB will be indexed to inflation.
Ontario Child Care Supplement
Since 2007, Ontario Child Care Supplement (OCCS) payments have been reduced by a family’s Ontario Child Benefit amount. The OCCS ended in July 2014, when the maximum annual OCB increased to $1,310 per child.
Final payment
The final OCCS entitlement will be paid for June 2014, with a final application deadline for this entitlement by December 31, 2015.
If an application is filed after December 31, 2015, OCCS entitlements will not be paid. Eligible families will continue to receive child benefit payments through the OCB.
Universal Child Care Benefit
The Government of Canada’s Universal Child Benefit also helps Canadian families pay for child care costs.
Eligibility
You can apply if you have a child under the age of 6.
Canada Child Tax Benefit
The Canada Child Tax Benefit is a tax-free monthly payment. It helps families pay for the costs of raising children under the age of 18.
Children with special needs
Children with special needs may require personalized attention and activities or special devices, toys and equipment.
Special Needs Resourcing (SNR) helps support the inclusion of children with special needs in licensed child care settings and approved recreation programs at no additional cost to parents / guardians.
How it works
School boards are responsible for providing supports to enable inclusion of children with special needs in board-operated before- and after-school programs.
The government provides funding to Consolidated Municipal Service Managers (CMSMs) or District Social Services Administration Boards (DSSABs). These municipal service managers then provide funding to agencies, to support the inclusion of children with special needs in licensed child care and approved recreation programs.
Agencies use this funding for special needs resources, which pay for staff, equipment, supplies and other services.
For more information, contact your CMSMs/DSSAB.
For more support
Find out about resources in your area for children with special needs by contacting your local:
·        band office administrator (for First Nations with provincial child care contracts)
There are also supports for school-aged children with special needs or for children with developmental disabilities such as hearing, speech and language problems.

[TPS] – March Break, March Safe Campaign, Monday, March 14, 2016 − Sunday, March 20, 2016

In Writing (all kinds) on March 13, 2016 at 4:59 PM

News Release

March Break, March Safe Campaign, Monday, March 14, 2016 − Sunday, March 20, 2016

Sunday, March 13, 2016 – 1:59 PM
Traffic Services
416-808-1900

During the week of Monday, March 14, 2016, to Sunday, March 20, 2016, the Toronto Police Service will be conducting the annual March Break pedestrian safety campaign.

The “March Break, March Safe Campaign” is designed to promote the education, awareness and enforcement strategies intended to heighten public awareness of pedestrian safety.

While children will be celebrating the arrival of March Break, the Toronto Police Service would like to remind parents and caregivers that the safety of the children in their care must still be a top priority.

Collision analysis has shown that, on average, 50% to 60% of all fatalities involve pedestrians. A total of 75% of all the fatalities reported this year have involved senior-age pedestrians. Last year, 39 pedestrians lost their lives, representing approximately 60% of all traffic fatalities in Toronto.

The need to be aware and alert at all times on any road, even in the most routine circumstances, is a key component to moving through traffic safely. This applies to pedestrians, drivers, cyclists, and transit-users alike. We ask those who drive to take extra care on the roads and in parking lots, especially in areas where children and seniors might be present.

Pedestrians/Transit-User Tips:

Parents and caregivers can reinforce some of these pedestrian safety messages to children, as well as some of our more vulnerable seniors and transit-users.

– stop, look, listen and think before entering the roadway
– utilize crossings at controlled areas, intersections and crosswalks
– make eye contact with drivers and other road-users
– wear reflective or bright clothing whenever possible
– never run into the street
– obey crossing signals and signs

Driver Safety Tips during the March Break:

– a driver who is aware and alert can avoid hazards and other distractions

General Driving Tips:

– scan to identify pedestrians and cyclists entering the road from curbs and driveways or when approaching intersections
– be ready for the unexpected
– avoid using distracting devices
– leave at least 2-3 seconds following distance between you and vehicles ahead
– in fog, rain, snow or darkness, use your full head lighting system. Remember, when conditions require you to use your windshield wipers, you should turn on your headlights as well
– to avoid backing into, or out of, a parking space, pull straight through two stalls (where available) so you are parked with the nose of your vehicle facing out
– drive in traveled lanes only – avoid driving across or through parking spaces
– use rear-view and outside mirrors often and frequently check your speed

During the campaign, all road-users will be subject to various education and enforcement initiatives. Let’s all work together to make the rest of the season safe.

Traffic Services is dedicated to ensuring the safe and orderly movement of traffic within the City of Toronto. Stay informed with what’s happening at: Twitter, Facebook Group and on Blog.

ZODIAC SIGNS PREDICTIONS FOR THE WEEK 14th March – 20th March 2016

In Writing (all kinds) on March 12, 2016 at 11:00 AM

new_500

Aries ( 21 March – 19 April ) – You will experience positive growth when travelling, teaching, learning, exploring and moving beyond your own preconceived limitations. The key is to balance this with your work commitments and relationships to higher ups- as going rogue without thinking of the consequences could cost you. Changes in your beliefs and attitudes, as well as in your friendship connections – can lead to more grounding and happiness. There’s also potential for deep spiritual shifts or awakenings- particularly around Mar 17th. It looks like a dynamic week full of opportunities, but that must be approached with care and wisdom. Favorable Date – Mar 13 Favorable Color – Blue

Taurus ( 20 April – 20 May ) – The week ahead is likely to start with a slight surge in your work-load: success is in the pipeline, but it will be important to know when to switch off. It will introduce a light-hearted approach to romance, perhaps too light- hearted, because commitment will be a turn-off. New ideas, visions and vitality are in-coming, as well as new potential partnerships, and you want to be sure to make the most of them. Yet it is key to balance this new energy with the deepening/healing experiences in your existing intimate relationships and work life. Favorable Date – Mar 16 Favorable Color – Yellow

Gemini ( 21 May – 20 June) – You will feel a bit frustrated and overwhelmed at times by the obstacles in your path but you also have a very good plan. Now it is time to set this plan into motion during the week ahead but you do not need to rush in to get this done. Take the time needed in order for you to get the results you are hoping for because a little more attention to details at this time will mean a better reward for you in the future. You will require to balance your  fire and passion with some discipline, mastery and healthy boundaries in relationships Favorable Date – Mar 16 Favorable Color – Red
