9 hacks for a perfect monthly budget

first_imgWhile the word “budget” may want to send some of us screaming in the other direction, creating a successful budget is actually one of the biggest gifts we can give ourselves. It not only seriously helps you out financially, but it does a ton to reduce the day-to-day anxiety so many of us feel when it comes to our finances.I have so many friends that genuinely want to be better with their money and sometimes even become riddled with anxiety over what they’re not doing, but instead of creating a plan of action they put budgeting off for another month and continue living with the stress.According to Jake Loescher, a financial advisor, in a piece for U.S News and World Report, “The biggest hurdle for people attempting to live on a budget is actually identifying every single category where income is consumed. Oftentimes this can be frustrating and – let’s be honest – some individuals can’t train themselves to track every penny.”If you’re losing sleep over your monthly finances but don’t know where to begin, here are nine super helpful tips for getting started with a monthly budget. continue reading » 53SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Howe school needs its own parking lot

first_imgGarner and Baker avenues, near the Plum Street intersection, have cars parked in front of our houses all day long.Wintertime creates an even bigger problem, with snowbanks making parking on the street more difficult.  There’s a fire hydrant in front of my house. Just about daily, I’m telling someone not to park there; it’s illegal.Some people argue. Most move. One man told me he had to park there because he had to talk on his phone. I do believe parking in front of hydrants is something that only emergency vehicles are permitted to do.  The school should provide adequate parking for all it employees. We want our streets back.Winifred BalzSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Motorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashTroopers: Schenectady pair possessed heroin, crack cocaine in Orange County Thruway stopEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesSchenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departmentsSchenectady police reform sessions pivot to online Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRegarding the Howe Magnet Elementary School parking issue: What were they thinking?  Last year, the school was shut down for major renovations.The one thing they didn’t do was to make a bigger parking lot for their staff and support personnel. So the staff (and support staff) park all over our neighborhood. They park on Plum Street — so it’s not a two-way street most of the day, as it becomes too narrow for cars to pass.  last_img read more

Abbey ‘recuperating’ after op

first_img Press Association St Nicholas Abbey is recuperating in intensive care after undergoing complex surgery on a career-ending injury to a pastern. They tweeted: “After a lengthy surgery to fuse the pastern St Nicholas Abbey is recuperating in intensive care at John Halley’s Fethard Equine Hospital. “Surgery was carried out at Fethard Equine Hospital in consultation with Dr Dean Richardson, head of surgery at New Bolton Centre Pennsylvania, along with Ger Kelly and Tom O’Brien. “St Nicholas Abbey will remain in intensive care for some time and has many bridges to cross before he is considered out of danger. This morning he is well and comfortable and back enjoying his hay. We are lucky he is so fit and has a marvellous attitude and temperament which will be vital for his long recovery.” A son of champion sire Montjeu, St Nicholas Abbey was champion two-year-old in 2009 when he crowned his season with a blistering display in the Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster. He was a red-hot favourite for the 2000 Guineas the following year, but could only finish sixth behind Makfi, and was not seen again until the following April when he was beaten at the Curragh. He was then an easy scorer at Chester and landed Group One glory in the Coronation Cup, a race he went on to win two more times. Arguably his two greatest successes came on the world stage, however. He won the Breeders’ Cup Turf in 2011, a victory which made his jockey Joseph O’Brien the youngest winner in Breeders’ Cup history, and as recently as March he landed the Dubai Sheema Classic at Meydan. St Nicholas Abbey has amassed close to £5million in prize money, having won nine of his 21 races. center_img The six-time Group One winner fractured a leg on the gallops at Aidan O’Brien’s Ballydoyle stables on Tuesday morning in preparation for Saturday’s King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes. St Nicholas Abbey underwent an operation on Wednesday, but still has “many bridges to cross before he is considered out of danger”, according to Coolmore Stud, who represent the colt’s owners. last_img read more

No luck for Geraghty on return

first_imgBarry Geraghty’s return to the saddle saw him finish sixth and second at Limerick on what were his first mounts as the new retained jockey to JP McManus. Geraghty was appointed to the role last month, replacing the now-retired Tony McCoy, and was in action for the first time since suffering a broken shinbone in March. He had another setback after being admitted to hospital with a kidney stone earlier this week. The Aidan O’Brien-trained Waver made some progress to improve going to two out in the Mike Denver Plays Limerick Racecourse Live On The 23rd July Rated Hurdle, but was never able to land any sort of blow. Geraghty said: “I had a good blow walking the course earlier as it started to rain going up the back straight; I’m fine riding but would be easily beaten in a race! “It’s brilliant (to be back), great (to get the job) and that was a nice introduction.” Geraghty’s other ride came on Hash Brown for McManus and trainer Michael Hourigan in the Book Online At Limerickraces.ie Beginners Chase. Hash Brown momentarily looked like he might give Geraghty a first-day-back winner, but it was not to be. He gave chase after Sizing Platinum led at the fourth-last, but the leader had plenty left and jumped the last two well to seal success. Punch Bag had taken Waver’s race, completing a double on the card for Andrew Lynch. Trainer Brendan Duke said of his 9-2 winner: “It is unlikely he will run many times and will run at Ballinrobe in a four-year-old hurdle in a few weeks’ time. He’ll then have one more run before being left off until the spring, but I’ll have to break that news to his owners first! Press Association “He is progressive and will improve further and if he is lucky in life, he has a bright future.” Sizing Platinum (3-1), meanwhile, looks to have a bright future after what was a winning debut over fences. Trainer Henry de Bromhead said: “That was good and he jumped deadly and really well. It can be trappy enough here at Limerick but he seems to have improved for a fence. “He is big and raw and only coming to himself now. Our hands are almost tied as to where he will run next as there are very few novices over two miles during the summer with the Galway Festival and Kilbegnet Chase at Roscommon on that route.” Myles Ahead is bound for Galway after getting off the mark in the Celebrating The 4th July Maiden Hurdle. Lynch’s mount had four and three-quarter lengths in hand of Rocky Court, to reward those who sent him off the 11-10 favourite. Trainer Tony Mulholland said: “He has has been knocking on the door and putting him back to two miles helped. “We’ll look for a handicap at Galway next.” The feature thetote.com Galway Plate Trial Handicap Chase went the way of Protaras (6-1) for Noel Meade and Ger Fox. Fox said: “We weren’t going to run him at all as we thought the ground might be too dead, but I kept him wide for the better ground and he jumped from fence to fence. “We put blinkers on him today as sometimes he can be quite lazy.” last_img read more

England Golf Partnership welcomes new school sport funding

first_img21 Mar 2013 England Golf Partnership welcomes new school sport funding The England Golf Partnership (EGP) has welcomed the government’s £150m-a-year boost for primary school sport. Golf is already a popular sport in schools and it is hoped that the new funding will help to get more children playing the game and encourage even closer links between schools and golf clubs. The new funding arrangements, part of the Olympic Legacy, include: •    Ring-fenced money to go directly to primary schools where head teachers will decide how to spend it. •    A greater role for Britain’s sporting and voluntary organisations, including National Governing Bodies, to increase the specialist coaching and skills development on offer for primary schools. “This is very positive news and provides an exciting opportunity for golf, which already has a strong presence in schools,” said Roger Moreland, the EGP’s chief operating officer. The Partnership brings together the amateur governing body, England Golf, and the PGA to grow the game with the support of the Golf Foundation and Sport England. The most recent School Sport Survey, in October 2010, showed that 44 per cent of schools in England delivered golf; an increase from 14 per cent in 2004 The Golf Foundation is an established force in schools through its HSBC Golf Roots programme, which has led to 39 out of 46 English counties including golf in their School Games in the current academic year. This includes training for young volunteers to help run the events and links to golf clubs where many of the events are held.   The Foundation also works closely with the EGP’s network of County Golf Partnerships to foster links between schools and golf clubs and to encourage youngsters to progress to membership. Brendon Pyle, the Foundation’s development manager, commented: “We have a very good structure in place with Tri-Golf in primary schools and support for PGA Coaches to work in schools and, through our new Junior Golf Passport, offering children a pathway into learning at the golf club. “It is also significant to note that funding has now been allocated to Sportivate and Satellite Club projects for young people below the age of 14 down to 11.  Golf Xtreme will form the basis of a new and exciting informal offer to this age group. “Through HSBC Golf Roots we have been able to show that golf can be easily adapted to schools and help to develop skills for life in young people. It’s not just about playing, it’s about integrity and developing personal and social skills.” The County Golf Partnerships (CGPs) develop links between schools and golf clubs, which are able to take advantage of a host of initiatives to support junior golf. These include the GolfMark for junior and beginner-friendly clubs, which has now been awarded to over 600 clubs; the National Skills Challenge which makes practice fun; and the Junior Organisers’ Handbook which guides those running junior sections. The CGPs also work closely with the County Sports Partnerships which will help schools link up with local coaches, clubs and sports governing bodies.     Richard Flint, the England Golf development manager, added: “Golf is very well placed to help primary schools offer the best possible sporting experience to children. This is a time of great opportunity for all.” Caption: Charge! School children take part in the Golf Foundation’s HSBC Golf Roots programme.last_img read more
