12 Points On Licence

Are You Facing 12 Points on Licence?

Points don’t mean prizes

12 points on licence has become a fact-of-life for many drivers, quite often through fixed-point penalty notices for ‘minor’ speeding offences, and often obtained by being caught by one of the many speed cameras. This is usually 3 points on your licence and a fine. Getting to 12 points means you will lose your licence for a period of time but you can achieve this much faster by conviction for more serious speeding offences or ‘driving without due care and attention’ or ‘dangerous driving’.

But if you have had your licence for less than 2 years you are at a much greater risk of losing your licence. If you get to 6 points, then your licence will be revoked and you’ll have to go back to being a learner and starting all over again. This includes any points you get while you hold a Read more

12 Penalty Points On Driving Licence

February 8, 2013 by  
Filed under Legal, Motoring, Transport

12 Penalty Points

The penalty points system was introduced in an attempt to provide the Courts with another method of punishing motorists apart from the original fine and driving ban option. In this way, the Court could endorse a person’s driving licence with the number of points it felt appropriate up to 12 penalty points, given the severity of the offence.

It also allowed the introduction of a system that was able to monitor the effect the Read more

Postnatal depression

February 7, 2013 by  
Filed under Health, Relationships

Postnatal depression is a type of depression some women experience after they have had a baby.

It usually develops in the first four to six weeks after childbirth, although in some cases it may not develop for several months.

There are many symptoms of postnatal depression, such as low mood, feeling unable to cope and difficulty sleeping, but many women are not aware they have the condition.

It’s common to experience mood changes, irritability and episodes of tearfulness after birth – the so-called baby blues. These normally clear up within a few weeks. But if a woman experiences persistent symptoms, it could well be the result of postnatal depression.

What is postnatal depression?

People expect that having a baby is going to be a source of happiness, and of course it is, and should be. But, as a new mother, you may be very far from feeling this straight away, and this can bring with it huge anxiety. You may go through a short period of feeling emotional and tearful, which may be brief and manageable (the ‘baby blues’), or you may develop deeper and longer-term depression (postnatal depression). Very rarely, a new mother may experience an extremely severe form of depression, known as puerperal psychosis.

What are the symptoms of postnatal depression?

The symptoms are similar to those that occur with depression at any other time. They usually include one or more of the following. In postnatal depression, symptoms are usually there on most days, for most of the time, for two weeks or more.

  • Low mood. Tends to be worse first thing in the morning, but not always.
  • Not really enjoying anything. Lack of interest in yourself and your baby.
  • Lack of motivation to do anything.
  • Often feeling tearful.
  • Feeling irritable a lot of the time.
  • Feelings of guilt, rejection, or inadequacy.
  • Poor concentration (like forgetting or losing things) or being unable to make a decision about things.
  • Feeling unable to cope with anything.

Talking therapies

Talking to your partner or a friend might help, but it can sometimes be difficult for them to understand what you are going through. Your GP or health visitor is your best first port of call.

http://www.shropshirecounselling.co.uk/

Your GP may be able to refer you to a support group, counsellor or psychotherapist. She also may be able to arrange for you to have cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). CBT can teach you every-day coping strategies for tackling PND. Unfortunately, in some areas there are long waiting lists for this. You may want to contact a charity that can put you in touch with a trained volunteer who is used talking to people with PND.

How to Create a Blog – Step by Step Easy to Follow Blogging Guide

January 21, 2013 by  
Filed under Finance, Money, Working From Home

How to Create a Blog

If you want to know how to create a blog, you need to get the basics right. Many people start blogs without the knowledge they need to make it work for them, so they end up with a blog that attracts no traffic and ultimately fails.

Blogging can be very rewarding and also very lucrative if you get the basics right from the beginning.

The top 100 Technorati ranked blogs all have several things in common;

  • They have good blog structures in place
  • They publish content to a proven schedule
  • They promote their blog content using proven strategies
  • They stick to a blogging formula that works

There are good reasons why the most successful bloggers all do the same things…… it’s because they work. If you want to make your blog as successful as some of the most profitable blogs online then you need to copy their strategy and do what they are doing.

The first point to clarify when asked how to create a blog is this…… can you use a free blog site or should you pay for your blog?

Free and Paid Blogging Sites

Free blogging sites seem like a great idea, especially if you are strapped for cash, however, there are lots of downsides that mean that if you are serious about creating a profitable blog you should not opt for a free blog.

The first issue is one of design. You are restricted on most if not all free blogging platforms, to using either their design or a limited range of design options. WordPress allows you more freedom, but is still not ideal.

Monetization. Being able to add affiliate banners, Ads, links and other money generation strategies to your blog is what will make you money. Many free platforms limit the monetization possibilities you have. Many free blogs have Google Adsense profit sharing arrangements available, but these will not make you rich. In order to make a lot of money with Google Adsense you need hundreds of thousands of visitors, and if you are sharing the Adsense income with the blogging company, you will never see more than pennies from your efforts.

This is why all the successful bloggers set up their own blogs on their own hosting. It is still a cheap process, costing under $5 per month to host your blog, and the WordPress files themselves are free to install. The only other cost that you have is to buy a domain name and this will be less that $10 per year.

How to Create a Blog – Blog Structure

How you create your blog is also important. Many people fail because they don’t consider what they are trying to achieve.

You are building a blog that you want people to visit, read and enjoy. You want your visitors to be able to easily find your content, to move from article to article, and to be able to find related content easily and quickly.

Your blog navigation should reflect that, and you should also link from your post content directly into related content using ‘contextual’ links where appropriate.

It is difficult to change your core blogging structure once your blog has been running for a while, so get this right in the beginning and you will save yourself a lot of stress later on.

How to Create a Blog – Getting the Basics Right

Are you going to be blogging about something that you will be able to make money with?

Is it a profitable niche?

What’s the best URL to choose?

How should you structure your content for the best results?

How are you going to promote your content?

How will you apply SEO to your blog posts?

How will your Monetize your content?

How will you engage with your visitors?

How often should you write new content?

Why shouldn’t you sign up for automated ‘Guest Blogging’ services?

These are all questions that you should be asking yourself if you want to create a thriving, profitable blog that will generate an income for you.

Every successful blogger has asked themselves these same questions when they got started, and they are reaping the rewards.

You can copy the most successful bloggers online and use their blogging strategy for how to create a blog for your blog.

Learn how the top bloggers run their blogs and follow the ultimate blogging guide for step by step set up advice and guidance that will give you a blog designed for success online.

Filed under Legal, Motoring, Transport

What is ‘Reckless driving’?

Dangerous (Reckless) driving is a statutory offence. It is also a term of art used in the definition of the offence of causing death by dangerous driving. It replaces the former offence of reckless driving.

  • it would be obvious to a competent and careful driver that driving in that way would be dangerous.

Some typical examples from court cases of dangerous driving are Read more
