4 Types Of Relationships That Are Bad For Your Money (MUST READ)

1. The broke friend

Do you have a friend who always seems to be in a financial bind? When you ask about his day are you usually met with a heart-wrenching story of his never-ending financial woes? It’s not unusual to fall on hard times every now and then, but it can get annoying when you keep encountering that one friend who seems to be perpetually broke. It’s OK to help out, but if your friend is starting to make a habit of asking for money, it’s time to re-evaluate your friendship. Is he your friend because he genuinely likes and supports you, or is your friend merely looking for a handout?

2. The gold digger

Does your significant other often expect you to pay for everything? Don’t let love blind you to a possible gold digger (and yes, we know that person could be a man or a woman). If you seem to be the only one opening up your wallet, it’s a sign your partner may primarily be with you for financial support. Pay close attention to how your partner acts during times when you don’t have a lot of cash to spare. Does your partner become cold and distant or are you met with compassion and support?

3. The irresponsible family member

Watch out for the family member who is constantly asking to “borrow” money. If you decide to give some of your hard-earned cash, just know beforehand that you may never get it back. Also make sure that you can actually afford to give the money in the first place. It’s not selfish to take care of your own financial needs first; it’s smart. Our advice when it comes to lending money: don’t. However, if you feel that you must lend, make sure you have enough in savings to cover your own expenses.

4. The big-spending spouse

Being in a relationship with a shopaholic is not fun. Your days and nights will likely be filled with arguments about money, email alerts about overdrawn bank accounts, and plenty of tears. If your partner has poor financial management skills, you’ll need to nip this in the bud before things get out of control.  A spendthrift spouse could put you in a tight spot in the event you were to make a significant financial purchase, such as a home. Organizations such as Shopaholics Anonymous and Debtors Anonymous are two good places for your partner to seek help.



4 Relationship Tips From Donald Trump

1. Looks are important, but so is intelligence
Trump has dated and been married to the most beautiful women in the world: Anna Nicole Smith, Carla Bruni, Marla Maples (his second wife), and current wife Melania Trump, just to name a few. However, it was his first wife Ivana that taught him that beauty and brains are the winning combination:

I knew from the start that Ivana was different from just about all of the other women I’d been spending time with. Good looks had been my top — and sometimes, to be honest, my only — priority in my man-about-town days. Ivana was gorgeous, but she was also ambitious and intelligent. When I introduced her to friends and associates, I said, ‘Believe me. This one’s different.’ Everyone knew what I meant, and I think everyone sensed that I found the combination of beauty and brains almost unbelievable. I suppose I was a little naive, and perhaps, like a lot of men, I had been taught by Hollywood that one woman couldn’t have both.

2. You both have to want the same things

One of the most important things Trump will tell you is that a good relationship involves being on the same page and wanting the same things. You both have to agree upon each of your lifestyles and be accepting of the other, because without that, the relationship is inevitably doomed. Trump speaks about this as being the main reason why his second marriage to Marla Maples ended:

My marriage to Marla lasted three and a half years. Sadly, like so many couples these days, we drifted apart. Our lifestyles became less and less compatible. We wanted different things. Marla was content when it was just her, [their daughter] Tiffany, and me. I, on the other hand, realized that business needed to be taken care of constantly. When two people have such a difference in opinion regarding the lifestyle they want to lead, there is no longer any reason to stay together.

3. Keep business out of marriage

Don’t work with your significant other. It can be a very sticky thing to get involved with, and it’s incredibly difficult to maintain a sane relationship when you both work and play together. It’s not the healthiest combination, especially if work overtakes everything in the relationship and becomes the basis for every conversation. Trump learned from his first marriage to Ivana that handing over part of his business to her was not the smartest move for their marriage:

My big mistake with Ivana was taking her out of the role of wife and allowing her to run one of my casinos in Atlantic City, then the Plaza Hotel. The problem was, work was all she wanted to talk about. When I got home at night, rather than talking about the softer subjects of life, she wanted to tell me how well the Plaza was doing, or what a great day the casino had. I really appreciated all her efforts, but it was just too much. . . I will never again give a wife responsibility within my business. Ivana worked very hard, and I appreciated the effort, but I soon began to realize that I was married to a businessperson rather than a wife.

4. You either bring out the best or worst in someone

This happens to be a huge indicator in knowing whether a relationship is right. When a relationship is right, you tend to bring out the best in each other. When it’s wrong, the opposite is true. Trump plainly realized this with a lot of the women he dated, which one can surmise is why the relationships probably never worked out. Trump reveals in his book, Trump: The Art of the Comeback: “I don’t know why, but I seem to bring out either the best or worst in women.”

Fake Anti-Malaria Drugs Reduced To 4% In Nigeria- NAFDAC

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has been scored high in its fight against counterfeit drugs as a nationwide survey of the quality of anti-malaria medicines in Nigeria revealed a drastic reduction of counterfeit anti-malaria drugs from 19.6% in 2012 to 3.6% in 2015.
The national survey on the quality of anti-malaria medicines which was conducted in six geo-political zones in the country was jointly undertaken by the National Malaria Elimination Programme of the Federal Ministry of Health and NAFDAC with the funding support of the United States Pharmacopeia and USAID.

Speaking on the development, the permanent secretary, Federal Ministry of Health, Mr Linus Awute, expressed delight over the feat, saying it is coming at a time the health sector has recorded a lot of successes and is now focusing on elimination of malaria in the country.

The permanent secretary, represented by the director, Public Health in the ministry, Dr Bridget Okoeguale, added that key among these successes is the International Standardisation Organisation (ISO) certification of NAFDAC’s drug laboratory.

He said this was made possible with the generous support of the US government through Promoting the Quality of Medicines (PQM) programme implemented by the United States Pharmacopeia.


Most Generous Couple Feeds 4,000 Syrian Refugees On Their Wedding Day

A couple in Turkey swapped out lavish nuptials with their friends and family for the bread line with thousands of Syrian refugees.

Last Thursday, Fethullah Üzümcüo?lu and Esra Polat doled out food to 4,000 Syrian refugees for their wedding reception on the border town of Kilis. The bride wore an elaborate white dress, with a tiara perched on her headdress, and the groom sported a white tuxedo with black trim. They stood behind large food trucks distributing meals to hungry Syrians. The couple had decided that instead of hosting their friends and family for a traditional banquet reception, they would feed the victims of a bloody civil war next door.

The idea came from the groom’s father, who volunteers for a Turkish relief organization called Kimse Yok Mu (KYM). For the past few years, KYM has distributed daily meals to the thousands of impoverished Syrians who’ve flooded across the nearby border. He approached a representative of the organization and proposed that the family would cover part of the costs of feeding refugees for the day (the family did not want to reveal the exact cost).

“I thought that sharing a big delicious dinner with our family and friends was unnecessary, knowing that there are so many people in need living next door,” he told the Independent blog i100.

Then he told his son, who was surprised by the prospect, but soon won over.

“When he told that to the bride she was really shocked because, you can imagine, as a bride you wouldn’t think about this—it’s all about you and your groom,” says Hatice Avci, the international communications manager for KYM. “In southeastern Turkey there is a real culture of sharing with people in need …They love to share their food, their table, everything they have. That’s why the bride also accepted. And afterwards she was quite amazed about it.”

So, they arrived at KYM’s distribution center on Thursday to spend the day serving food and taking photographs with their grateful recipients. “Hopefully this will also give the start for other wedding dinners to be held here with our brothers in Syria,” the groom told local news.
