It of course has taken quite some time for the compensation culture to reach Europe, but, just as the Big Mac found its way across the water, so have the legal eagles that want us all to make that claim for compensation.
This is the main reason why claiming compensation now has a "stigma" attached to it, people are classed as "money grabbers" and yes, there are many cases that have been brought to light in the past few years regarding "fakers" and "con-men" but the fact of the matter is, many of the claims for compensation against third parties are actually valid.
Why do people make claims for compensation?
Normally a claim for compensation is made because one person has been the victim of a third parties cruelty, dishonesty, neglect or lack of care of attention, lets face it, if you have suffered mentally, physically or financially at the hands of another, surely you should be entitled to compensation!
When is it wrong to make a claim for compensation?
In short, if you have been a victim and have suffered because of somebody else, the answer is NEVER! It is your right as a citizen of the European Union to make a claim for compensation, and there are many ways that this can be done.
No Win No Fee - How does it work?
Many people choose to make compensation claims via a "No Win No Fee" arrangement, this usually means that whatever the outcome, the compensation claim will not cost you a penny, however, you should read all the paperwork carefully and look for clauses in any agreement before you sign them, if you live in the United Kingdom you can take your paperwork to the Citizens Advice Bureau who will check it for free.
A No Win No Fee agreement will normally mean taking out an insurance policy in case you lose your case, this covers both you and your solicitor against expensive legal fees that can often escalate into very large sums.
There are many different reasons why people make claims for compensation, and no person who feels that they have a genuine reason to claim should ever feel that they are in the wrong, it is essential that both individuals and companies within the European Union understand the importance of "Due Care and Attention" and "Due Diligence" and if this means "hitting them where it hurts" then so be it.
Reasons for making claims for compensation or No Win No Fee Compensation Claims can include; Road Traffic Accidents, Accidents at Work, Discrimination in the Workplace, Unfair Dismissal, Racism, Criminal Damage, Criminal Violence, Loss of Earnings, Medical Negligence, Accidents on Holiday, if fact, the list is endless, if you have suffered at the hands of another, you should consider making a claim for compensation.

Each dating site has lots and lots of dating profiles... but only some of them make the site alluring for the other people. And it's important to create one these super profiles to make the most of online dating. So continue reading to know a couple of secrets of how to achieve success in the online dating.
Of course, the most important in the dating profile is a nice picture of you. In the most cases the appearance of the penpal get number 1 priority, the content of the letter sets the second position.
So, a good photo of you will certainly allow you to stand out the competition of the huge amounts of the profiles on the dating site. This is something like a "first impression" and you really get only one chance. Sure, there's no doubt that your standards should be really high. You should be very critical to yourself while chosing the photos to your profile, make sure that your pics will make a very good impression or even amaze your future penpals.
The thing is – even if you are really attractive and handsome in the real life but created a really bad profile – the people you correspond with will remember the worst of you. That's why, my advice is - throw away your bad pictures and post two or three the best ones. It's a simple logic that the photos should reflect you personality in the best manner, unless you are searching for nothing serious and you just want to waste your time. It very common to post two really good photos of you - a headshot and a full length shot, of course you can post the photos of your children (if you have ones) and maybe the picture of the favourite part of your house, a pet.
Of course not only your pictures attract people – you should attach a little story about yourself. This can be about some your interests, the way of life, a description of a person you are looking for on the dating site... whatever that will show your personality from the good side and will help you to find that special person you are looking for.
The other important thing in the online dating is the first letter – you should make it very very good to make your penpal reply to you. This is like the first impression as well. If your first letter is boring and has nothing interesting, then the person you are writing to most likely won't bother answering you. With the first message you should make a person interested in you. Before writing the letter you should explore the profile of the person you want to write to, and I advise you to mention why you think you will be a good match, what you like the most her or his profile (it can be something in the appearance, some common interests, etc.), feel free to express your thoughts on this or that matter.
Of course you shouldn't write to much in the first letter but you are always free to ask questions. Be short-spoken and vivid in your letter. You should write the most you can with as little as possible. Do not tell about yourself just everything – keep a room for the mystery, it's much more attractive than openness.
Well, I hope my pieces of advice will help you to create a great dating profile and to find a person you really deserve. Good luck!

Fist of all, nowadays it will be much easier for you to come to Russia to see your potential bride, than to get a visa to America or Canada for a single woman.
If you've decided to come to Russia to meet your Russian bride for the first time you have different options on what to do. You can arrange a tour through an agency, for example, a travel agency or a dating site. If you go through a travel agency, it will cost less, but the dating site (agency) will know what your specific needs are in terms of being in Russia for the first time. These agencies can help with translation services, along with hotels in different cities and setting up a tour just for you.
Once you've decided to arrange everything by yourself you should take in account the possibilities of the Russian girl you're going to meet. You can send money to her for travel expenses or you can send a ticket that you have purchased, so that you may get the refund yourself once the plan fails. Make sure that everything is planned right and it'll be done correctly. Your potential bride should already have a passport for foreign travel or else it will take about 2-3 months for her to get it.
There are plenty of different events to attend in the Russian cities. You should discuss with her what she would like to see and do and how she would like to spend time with you in getting to know you. A mix of social activities combined with dining alone will help you get to know each other in a variety of situations.
After you decide to marry, you'll certainly want your bride to move to your hometown. For example, if you are trying to bring a Russian bride into the United States, there are a few different ways to accomplish that. Usually the main aim is to get a "fiance visa" and there are some requirements that you must follow in order to get the visa.
You can apply for it yourselves and fill out all the paperwork yourselves. This is the cheapest route, but if the paperwork is not filled out 100% perfectly, it can cause delays. You can have a fiance visa service handle it. Make sure the service you use is licensed. Remember, the service will just be filling out the forms for you and are not usually immigration attorneys, so if any legal issues come up, they will be ill equipped to handle them.You can alwas hire a US immigration lawyer to take care of it. This is the most expensive option, but also the one that will cause you the least hassle, especially with a bride coming over from Russia. There are lots of Do-It-Yourself Kits out there that you can look over that will give you a good idea about what is involved. The process can go smoothly, but any mistakes can cause delays and that can ruin a marriage before it even gets started.
And most important in your research on Russian brides. There is a lot of information about Russian dating out there if you just look around and ask questions. Information is power, so use it to your best advantage.

I have had personal experience about Britains knife culture. When I was about eighteen years of age I went out for a few drinks with a number of my close friends. We all ending up getting quite drunk and I ended up walking home with three of these friends. On the way home we passed a group of four men all in their twenties. They pushed passed us in an aggressive way making a number of nasty comments at the same time.
Despite being rather worse for wear, myself and my friends did not react. We were however very shocked as only a few moments later these four youths started to run towards us in quite a frightening way. We all started to run but one of my friends stumbled and fell over. I looked behind me and saw that these four men had surrounded him and were starting to punch him. I was not really sure what to do and was quite surprised to find myself going to his aid, rather brave or stupid I now think.
Luckily for me the youths ran off with my friend lying on the floor in agony. As I reached him I noticed that there was blood on the pavement at the place where he was lay. I asked him if he was OK and he said that he was. He had been stabbed in the stomach or chest area but had not realised. He thought that he had only been punched.
We managed to get him to the hospital where we later found out that he had been very lucky, even though he did have a punctured lung.
Even to this day which is years later, I find it hard to understand why the person decided to stab my friend. Why was a few punches not enough for him? It was not as if he was in any danger himself as there was four men against one. If he had killed my friend he could have been looking at a long stretch in prison and would have to live with the knowledge that he has killed a man for the rest of his life.
My advice to people is to leave your knives at home. By carrying a knife you could end a persons life, ruin the lives of that persons family and friends and even ruin your own life.
Over the last weekend, I have read about three murders on the streets of Britain via knife stabbings. I can not truly believe that the people carrying these knives left their houses with the intention to kill. The act was possibly influenced by alcohol or by some troubles in their own life. The people involved are likely to seriously regret their actions only a short time later. This however is too late for their victims.

The Happy Pumpkin
You can easily turn your everyday cake mix into a pumpkin creation with the help of bunt pans and decorative icing.
Take 3 boxes of your favorite white or yellow cake mix, and mix according to package decorations. Pour the batter into two bunt pans, and bake according to package decorations. Allow the cakes to cool completely and remove from the pan.
While you are waiting for the cakes to cool, empty three cans of vanilla frosting into a mixing bowl. If you are pretty practiced with cake decorating, 2 may be enough, but three cans will allow extra to work out unevenness and fingerprints. Add red and yellow food coloring to the frosting, stirring until the frosting becomes the desired orange color for your pumpkin. Frost the flat side of the bunt cakes, and then stack on top of each other to create your pumpkin shape. Then continue to frost the sides of the cake until you have an orange pumpkin.
If you would like to turn your pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern, simply use some black icing to draw your eyes, nose, and a mouth. You can also consider decorating a small cupcake with brown or green icing to create a stem. If you are very practiced in cake decorating, consider some pumpkin vines down the sides and back. Your company is sure to be impressed.
The Creepy Spiderweb
If you want something a little spookier for your Halloween party, consider a creepy spider web cake. A little frosting and a chocolate muffin can help you make this creepy cake.
Take one box of your favorite chocolate cake mix and mix it according to the package decorations. Bake in two round pans and allow to cool completely.
While the cakes are cooling, scoop 2 cans of vanilla frosting into a large mixing bowl. Combine yellow and blue food coloring (or yellow and green) until you come up with a spooky green color. Spread a layer between the two cakes, and the cover the rest of the cake with frosting.
Draw a spiderweb on the top of the cake using black icing. You can start by drawing lines straight across as though the cake was a clock – from12 to 6, 1 to 7, 2 to 8, etc. Then starting at the center of the cake, draw larger circles working their way outwards until the web is complete.
Take a chocolate muffin or cupcake and cut of the “stem” so you are left with the top. Frost the entire thing with chocolate frosting and then roll in chocolate sprinkles. Set onto the “web” and attach small pieces of black string licorice to be the legs.
If you would like to get even more creative, you can extend your web down the sides of the cake, and draw on bugs using different colored icing.
With a few cake decorating skills and some creativity, you too can create spooky Halloween desserts.

The rates that you will be charged are going to differ on the type of babysitter you decide to go with. The two types of babysitters are generally going to fall into one of two categories: a personal acquaintance/friend and a professional agency.
Hiring a babysitter from an agency will be more expensive than hiring an acquaintance or friend. With an agency, you will have to pay them a fee on top of the babysitter’s hourly rate. However, that fee should guarantee you that your loved ones will be in good hands. Being that the agency is correctly run, you should be provided with the babysitter’s credentials, and the agency should know the babysitter very well. This will help give you peace of mind while you are out, away from your loved ones. Another advantage of hiring a babysitter from an agency is that they can generally adhere to all of your needs, in terms of having a babysitter ready in very short notice or in being able to have someone take care of you kids over longer periods of time.
Now in determining the rate per hour that you pay your babysitter will likely depend on how many children she will be watching each time. The more children being watched would naturally mean a higher hourly rate. A very common hourly rate for a baby sitter for one child is twelve dollars. Most babysitters will charge anywhere from three to five dollars more per additional child. If you use the same babysitter all the time and things have been working out smoothly, you might be able to negotiate a slightly lower rate being that you are a source of regular income for that person. It can’t hurt to negotiate once a relationship has been built, but don’t try and take advantage of that person, or you might lose your regular babysitter.
If you have a child or children that require special needs or that tend to be extremely unruly, then there will likely be a surcharge to the average hourly rate, as it is going to take the babysitter more effort to complete her duties. The same also goes for a babysitter who you require to do more than just watch the children, such as preparing dinner for them or picking them up from school. On the other hand, if you only require that your babysitter read to your child and then put him/her to bed at a specific hour, then your rates are sure to be lower.
In terms of paying your babysitter, that is something that can be worked out between the two of you to find the most suitable terms of payment. Often, however, the babysitter will allow you to pay a slightly lower rate if you pay in cash. So you may want to exploit this option.
At the end of the day, you just want to make sure that you and your babysitter are happy with the arrangements. Your babysitter is taking care of your precious ones, and that is not something you are looking to get a big discount on. More importantly, you just want to make sure that your children are safe while you are away.

- For starters, you need to take a five or ten minute break from working about once every hour. Exercise, take a rest, or do something enjoyable during the break. Try and forget about the work you have been doing; fretting only contributes to muscle and mental strain.
- Massaging your hands and forearms several times a day will improve circulation. You should also massage your neck muscles to relieve the tension of keeping your head in one position for any length of time.
Work downwards from your head to your shoulders, pressing more firmly as you go on. You may want to rub in a small amount of good-quality hand cream or massage oil, as this will stop your skin becoming dry and sore.
- Try to work in a reasonably warm place. Your muscles must work harder if they become chilled, and are more likely to feel strain easily. Also, your hands will ache and feel weak after working too long in a cold or draughty spot.
- Do a few easy stress relieving exercises. Buy a stress ball - a huge variety are available off the Internet. Slowly squeeze the ball with your hand ten to fifteen times. Do this exercise frequently, as often as once every hour if you need to do a lot of computer work.
Another good stress releieving exercise is to slowly spread your hands out, making your fingers spread out as widely as they can. Then, slowly curl your fingers inwards until you make a loose fist. Relax then repeat this five times each hand.
Finally, let your arms dangle by your sides and gently shake them out a few seconds. This will help relieve muscle tension.
- While you are working, yawns every once in a while - with some jobs, this will come naturally! This will put more oxygen into your body because doing repetitive, non-active things causes your air (oxygen) intake to drop, lowering your energy level. During your breaks, 'charge up' on oxygen by breathing deeply and smoothly but DO NOT hyperventilate.
- Continual focussing at one distance (the screen) soon tires your eye muscles. So while you 're working, periodically look away from the screen every now and then and focus your eyes on varied distant objects. This will give your eyes a break from constantly focusing on one thing.
Don't be pressured! If anyone queries you easing off every now and then, show them this article and ask how they want you tomorrow - well and working or off with injury, seeing a doctor?
