Sephora closes stores for diversity training

NEW YORK — Sephora is closing its U.S. stores for an hour to host “inclusion workshops” for its 16,000 employees, just over a month after R&B star SZA said she had security called on her while shopping at a store in California.The beauty retailer said the training had been in development months before SZA’s experience, which undermined the company’s efforts to cast itself as a champion of diversity. Sephora, which apologized to SZA last month, said the incident “does reinforce why belonging is now more important than ever.”The store closures come as some businesses are rethinking their approach to anti-bias training in the wake of academic studies suggesting such programs have done little to improve workplace diversity and, in some cases, can backfire.Alexandra Olson, The Associated Press read more

Traders look to latest CanadianUS economic growth data bank earnings

by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 23, 2014 4:00 am MDT TORONTO – The Toronto stock market looks to build on the solid gains racked up so far this year as traders get set to consider the latest economic growth figures for Canada and the United States this week, along with earnings reports from the big Canadian banks.The Canadian dollar could find itself under renewed pressure when Statistics Canada releases growth data for December and the fourth quarter on Friday.December is expected to show a sharp reversal in gross domestic product, largely because of crippling ice storms in Ontario and Quebec towards the end of the month.“We think that played a huge role in a likely outright decline in December GDP of about 0.3 per cent following a string of pretty decent gains in GDP,” said Sal Guatieri, senior economist at BMO Financial Markets.Guatieri noted that the stormy weather won’t affect overall fourth-quarter growth much as the damage occurred late in the month.“We should still see a pretty decent increase in Q4 GDP of 2.6 per cent,” he said.At the same time, he expected first quarter growth will slow to around two per cent, “maybe less.”Friday will also see the release of the first revision to U.S. fourth-quarter gross domestic product growth.The initial reading came in at 3.2 per cent but Guatieri thinks that won’t hold, again because of worsening weather in December. He sees growth closer to 2.7 per cent and looks for first-quarter growth to slow to below two per cent.“We’re just seeing broad weakness across consumer spending, housing market indicators, manufacturing, right across the board — and the only thing that comes to mind to explain that is the weather,” he said.The TSX ended last week with a solid gain of 1.07 per cent, reflecting general satisfaction with fourth-quarter earnings reports and positive U.S. manufacturing data last week. Gains were led by the gold sector, which has revived about 30 per cent year to date after falling almost 50 per cent last year.Meanwhile, investors will take in earnings this week from Bank of Montreal (TSX:BMO), Royal Bank (TSX:RY), TD Bank (TSX:TD) and CIBC (TSX:CM). Scotiabank (TSX:BNS) posts earnings next week.Expectations are largely muted, reflecting higher economic growth outside of Canada and a housing market coming off the boil.The financial sector is down for February and “the pullback has been partially a proxy on the Canadian housing market because we know that housing has slowed down,” said Wes Mills, chief investment officer, Scotia Private Client Group“And then secondly, it is those banks that are highly exposed or exposed at all to emerging markets. The fragile five emerging markets that are kind of pulling down the global sentiment is also pulling down any banks that have broader emerging market exposure.”The battered Canadian dollar could be a plus for the banks with the biggest U.S. operations, such as TD, BMO and RBC.The currency has fallen sharply over the past several months, down a good four cents against the American dollar just since the start of the year to just below the 90-cent US level.“It should have a positive impact on any earnings coming back from the U.S., so the ones that have a big US operation, that should have a positive effect on earnings,” said Colin Cieszynski, senior markets analyst at CMC Markets.“If they’re profitable then net/net it should be a positive for them as the earnings come back.” Traders look to latest Canadian/U.S. economic growth data, bank earnings AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Receiving duo provides help on offense

When coach Jim Tressel sat down quarterback Terrelle Pryor the week before the Rose Bowl Game and told him that the plan was to throw the ball, Pryor wasn’t the only one who was excited at the prospect of a game in the air.Junior Dane Sanzenbacher and sophomore DeVier Posey, Pryor’s leading receivers, were in for a big game as well.“I was very excited when Tressel said that we were coming to wing it,” Pryor said. “We knew what we could do.”The offensive MVP of the Rose Bowl, Pryor was complimentary of his teammates, especially his receivers.Pryor, who set a career high with 37 pass attempts, said he wouldn’t be able to do anything without “DeVier laying out for catches and catching the ball and Dane and the linemen just sweating, fighting,” he said.Sanzenbacher said that even though the team has focused on its running game in recent matches, “when you get the passing game started and when you get that chemistry going, it helps out,” he said.Sanzenbacher, whose previous record for receptions was against Toledo on Sept. 19 with five, led OSU in catches against Oregon while Posey led in yardage. Sanzenbacher had nine receptions for 64 yards and Posey had 101 yards on eight catches with one touchdown.Posey’s touchdown reception late in the fourth quarter sealed the Buckeye victory, putting OSU up 26 to 17.Pryor was “put it in a spot where all [the Oregon defender] could do was just hope I dropped it like before. He was all money all night,” Posey said.The touchdown pass was from 17 yards out and was a play the two had been working on for a while, Pryor said. Pryor threw to Posey in the back left corner of the end zone. Posey caught the ball just before stepping out of bounds. After the play was reviewed, it was confirmed that he had indeed made the catch.“I finally got it after watching all the tapes and film from Peyton Manning and stuff and trying to get the footwork and getting the ball out,” Pryor said. “DeVier made a great catch.”Sanzenbacher had several receptions in key drives to help the Buckeyes, who edged Oregon for possession with 42 minutes to 18 minutes. He snatched three first downs for OSU.Sanzenbacher’s game-long reception came just before the half and was an 18-yard advance. The second-down conversion set up Aaron Pettrey’s 45-yard field goal that put the Buckeyes up 16-10 heading into the half.He also caught an 11-yard pass late in the fourth quarter on a third-down conversion leading to Posey’s touchdown.Pryor was 23 for 37 with 266 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. read more

Opinion Dont let the word bankruptcy scare you it is now a

first_imgIN 2009 NEARLY 90,000 people in Britain elected to bankrupt themselves. In the United States the figure was in excess of 1 million. And yet in Ireland, the county with the most heavily indebted citizenry in the western world, the figure was less than 10. Is it any wonder that we continue to remain stuck in a miasma of personal debt?In Ireland, our adamant refusal to face up to reality is unprecedented and will continue to act as a drag on recovery. Thousands of people, who, if given a second chance, would be back at work creating jobs and wealth, are forced to live in a limbo land where every move they make is blocked by creditors. Those creditors must realise they will not be paid but still refuse to allow the natural cycle take its course.There is now a viable bankruptcy option available to peopleThe law changed earlier this year and there is now a viable bankruptcy option available to people. And for many there is no downside to bankruptcy. It is a simple process where debts are eliminated and the person can begin again. That new beginning marks a rebirth for the individual and offers great benefit for the economy and onward to society. It is a recognition and embrace of failure and if properly understood people can emerge from it stronger than before. It is no accident that in the United States many of their greatest visionaries faced personal bankruptcy at one stage in their lives.So how does it work in Ireland? In order to qualify a person needs to meet three criteria. First your debt needs to exceed your liabilities by more than €20,000. Secondly, you must be insolvent, in the sense of not being able to pay all your debts as they fall due. And finally you must have made reasonable efforts, insofar as you can, to come to an arrangement with your creditors via an insolvency arrangement under the new Personal Insolvency Act.Once you meet the criteria you are entitled to petition the High Court for your own bankruptcy, the effect of which is to eliminate all debt from whatever source it comes. You therefore emerge on the very moment of your bankruptcy debt free and able to start a new life unhindered by debt, however great.Income and the family homeIn general people ask two questions of the process. First, what happens to my income? For most people there is no effect, in that if you have a job you continue to have a job. However if your income is such as to mean there is an excess available, the Official Assignee will require you to make payments to him for a maximum period of 5 years. Our experience is that excess income is only available to the few as most people do not have any excess having had regard to published reasonable expenditure guidelines – and if they do it is very limited.Second, what happens to my family home? The view that you automatically lose your home in bankruptcy is false. Figures show that at least half of people previously bankrupted in Ireland have held on to homes and the Official Assignee has repeatedly stated that his preferred option is to allow people hold on to homes provided the mortgage is reasonable. Each case falls to be determined on its own facts and so taking good advice is important before making a decision to proceed.Under our new system pensions are protected provided they are not accessible for 5 years post adjudication. The alchemy of bankruptcy happens on day one as you are immediately debt free and able to begin again. However, in most cases people will not be discharged from bankruptcy in Ireland until a period of three years have passed. During that time any windfall would be captured by the Official Assignee as an after acquired asset, and restrictions, such as that on being a director of a limited company, remain in place. After 3 years you are in the clear.Credit ratingWhat about my future access to credit? People are concerned as to the effect bankruptcy has on their credit rating. The truth is that anybody considering bankruptcy is hardly likely to have a good credit rating as matters stand. History shows banks to have short term memories.In a post-bankruptcy world the would-be borrower is debt free and will be seen as such. And the past is the past especially when that past was not of the individual’s creation – our personal debt crisis is a result of monumental failures of banks and regulators. In three years from now there will be a class of post Celtic tiger bankrupts emerging from the process and they will be seen as such.Since 2008 people have struggled with debts that cannot and will not be repaid. Had we embraced a modern bankruptcy regime in 2009 the personal debt crisis would now be history and the economy and our society would be the beneficiary.But as late is better than never, the time has come to stand up for ourselves and our futures, to remove the chains of debt from around our ankles, and to begin in earnest the march toward financial redemption.Ross Maguire SC, New Beginning: www.newbeginning.ieRead: Ban on bankrupts running for Dáil to be liftedlast_img read more

Louisville Ends Season with Overtime Loss to Michigan State

first_img LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Michigan State’s John Freitag scored the clinching goal in the 93rd minute to lift the Spartans to a 2-1 overtime victory against the No. 4 University of Louisville men’s soccer team in Sunday night’s NCAA Championship second round match at Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn Stadium.The Cardinals ended their season with an 11-5-3 record overall after Sunday’s loss, while MSU (12-4-4) advanced to a third round tilt at No. 13 Georgetown next weekend. Despite the early exit in the NCAA Championship, the 2018 season was a successful one for Louisville, highlighted by the program’s first ACC Championship title.After Louisville pushed the match into overtime with the equalizing goal in the 78th minute, Michigan State delivered the game-winner just 2:18 into extra time as Freitag completed a corner kick chance with his third goal of the season. The ball was delivered into the box from the left corner and the Cardinals missed on a pair of chances to clear the ball before Freitag scored inside the left post for the clincher.”It’s a tough way to end the season, especially in overtime. Traditionally, if you look back the last couple of years at our games in the NCAA tournament second round, they’ve been some of our toughest games,” said Cardinals head coach Ken Lolla. “Michigan State’s a tough team. We knew coming in that they were going to be a tough team to break down. Unfortunately, we gave them an opportunity in the first half to counter and then had to scratch our way back. I think our guys did a really good job of that and unfortunately, on a restart, didn’t handle the first ball very well and they got a second chance and took advantage of it.”The Spartans opened the scoring on Sunday after Jack Beck connected from 14 yards for a 1-0 lead in the 16th minute. Ryan Sierakowski earned his fifth assist of the season after making a run up the right side before finding Beck with a pass across the pitch. Beck finished inside the far right post for his third goal of the season.MSU took that lead into halftime and maintained it for much of the second half before the Cardinals evened the score at 1-1 on the second goal of the season for Haji Abdikadir. The scoring chance started on a corner kick from Ziyad Fekri, who sent the ball into the middle of the box. Lamine Conte put a foot on the ball and directed toward the end line, where Abdikadir slide in and popped the ball into the goal. The goal went to a video review after it appeared a Louisville player touched the ball with his hand, but officials ruled the contact occurred after the ball had crossed the goal line.Both sides had chances in the final 10 minutes of regulation but neither could connect before reaching 90 minutes. In overtime, the goal by Freitag proved to be the only shot for either side. Louisville had a 10-7 edge in shots, including a 5-3 margin on goal. The Cardinals also had four of the six corner kicks in the match.Michigan State moved to 3-1-1 all-time against Louisville with the victory. The Cardinals dropped to 14-10-2 all-time in the NCAA Championship, including 12-5-2 at home.Sunday’s result closed the collegiate careers for seniors Geoffrey Dee, Tate Schmitt, Adam Wilson and Watterson Young. Schmitt departs Louisville ranking fourth in school history in career points with 69 and sixth in career goals with 26. He totaled 11 game-winning goals, including four in the NCAA Championship.Fans can follow Louisville men’s soccer on Twitter at @UofLmenssoccer and on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/UofLmenssoccer. Print Friendly Version Photo Gallery Video: Postgame Press Conference Story Linkscenter_img Video Highlights Box Score (PDF) last_img read more

Firefox 68 addon release notes in addons manager

first_imgFirefox 68: add-on release notes in add-ons manager by Martin Brinkmann on June 11, 2019 in Firefox – Last Update: June 11, 2019 – 21 commentsThe Firefox Add-ons Manager will soon display the release notes of updated extensions directly in the web browser.Mozilla plans to release the new feature in Firefox 68 which is scheduled for a July 9, 2019 release.Firefox supports browser extensions; users may install add-ons in the browser to extend functionality of the browser or sites visited in the browser.Add-ons are updated automatically by default whenever a new version is released by the developer or publisher. Firefox users who want more control over the update process may change the default behavior to turn automatic updates off.Current versions of Firefox, those prior to version 68, don’t reveal update information when you select Extensions. Updates are highlighted under Available Updates in the Add-ons Manager but only until the update is installed.The only option after installation was to visit the extension’s profile page on the Mozilla Add-ons repository, or to look the information up on the developer’s site if they were provided there.The profile page on Mozilla AMO lists the release notes of the latest version of an add-on. It is possible to click on “see all versions” on the page to display release notes for previous releases.Starting with Firefox 68, release notes are also a part of the Extensions listing of the Firefox web browser. Apart from that change, the latest release notes are listed there so that it is possible to go through them after the fact.All you need to do is open about:addons in the Firefox web browser, click on one of the installed browser extensions, and switch to the Release Notes tab.Note that you can also click on the menu icon (the three dots) next to any extension and select “more options” to open the details page of the installed extension.Release Notes are pulled from Mozilla’s AMO website when they are opened in the browser; it may take a moment to display them because of that. Implementing an option to integrate release notes with releases so that they don’t need to be fetched separately would be a welcome improvement.The release notes depend on the content that the developer of the extension or its publisher add to the release notes snipped on Mozilla AMO. Some developers provide extensive information, others barely any information at all.Closing WordsThe option to display release notes directly in the Firefox Add-ons Manager is a welcome step in the right direction. I’d like to see an option get these displayed during add-on updates as well to get even more control over the updating process.Mozilla could implement these optionally and keep the automatic process the default in coming versions of Firefox.Now You: What is your take on the change? Anything you’d like to see added to it?SummaryArticle NameFirefox 68: add-on release notes in add-ons managerDescriptionThe Firefox Add-ons Manager will soon display the release notes of updated extensions directly in the web browser.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Decade after attack tears for dead hope for Bali

first_imgHotel rooms were hard to come by Friday, even as security alerts were raised to the highest level following a potential unspecific threat.“There is peace in this island, and the knowledge that millions still come here for the same reasons you and your loved ones did,” Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard told victims’ loved ones at a memorial service. “And perhaps there is a grim reassurance in knowing that the terrorists did not achieve what they set out to do. They did not undermine Indonesian democracy, which has only grown stronger across the passage of a decade.”Australia suffered more deaths in the attacks than any other country, with 88 of its citizens dead. Bali, with its lively nightlife and warm pristine waters, has long been a favorite getaway for Australians, and Gillard herself had returned home from a family holiday a day before the Oct. 12, 2002, attacks.The Australian government paid for more than 600 survivors and victims’ family members to attend the ceremony. Some gathered for the memorial in shorts and T-shirts, fanning themselves in the blazing morning heat.Danny Hanley, one of the speakers, lost two daughters in bombings: Renee died immediately and Simone became the last victim after 58 days in a Perth burn unit. “When I hear of the 88 Australians that died, I always shed a tear that my beautiful daughter, Simone, was number 88,” he said. 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Tourism, meanwhile, has bounced back. More than 1.8 million foreigners arrived in Bali prior to the attacks, and last year 2.7 million came to the island where Julia Roberts filmed part of the movie “Eat, Pray, Love.”“It was a big thing for Australia because this is … like our second home to come to. It was pretty devastating but you know, it happens all over the world,” Mitch O’Brian said while enjoying a holiday in Bali. “I’m not afraid to come here because it’s a great place.”Security was tight at Friday’s memorial with more than 2,000 police and military deployed, including snipers. Two days earlier, police said they had received information about a potential terrorist threat. Bali deputy police chief Brig. Gen. Ketut Untung Yoga Ana said new intelligence indicates the threat may have weakened, but he added that security forces would remain vigilant and continue to closely monitor movement in and out of the island.Last month police arrested 10 Islamic militants and seized a dozen homemade bombs from a group suspected of planning suicide attacks, but to Bali hotel operator Gde Wiratha, that was in part a sign that the threat remains.

Tears fell as victims’ names were read at a memorial, but not far away, surfers paddled for world-class waves and vacationing shoppers lined busy sidewalks haggling for souvenirs.Suicide bombers killed 202 people, mostly foreign tourists, when one blew himself up inside and another set off a car bomb at the popular Sari Club and Paddy’s Pub in Kuta that sultry Saturday night in 2002. But radicalism did not take over this moderate Muslim nation, and the visitors terrorists once scared away from the resort island have come flooding back. Other Balinese suffer still more intensely from the attacks, which killed 38 Indonesians and injured many more.Tumini, who like many Indonesians uses only one name, was a bartender getting ready to serve her first customer that night at Paddy’s Pub. She was thrown outside the bar and knocked unconscious. The only thing she remembers is waking up in the hospital with burns covering her face and body.Today, the mother of three still struggles to understand why she survived when so many others died. She was forced to find lower-paying work and cannot afford the medical care she needs.“I feel my life is still miserable. I am not 100 percent normal,” she said. “I often think and ask why God still allows me to live if I have to endure this pain.”Most of Indonesia’s 210 million Muslims practice a moderate style of Islam that condemns violence, and the government has worked to root out militants, arresting more than 700 of them since the bombings and killing dozens more. Terrorist attacks aimed at foreigners have been largely replaced in recent years by smaller, less deadly strikes mostly targeting police and anti-terrorism forces.“Instead of spreading the seeds of hatred, that heinous attack has prompted governments and peoples of different backgrounds, of different nationalities and religions, to reach out to one another,” said Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa. “To stand united.” Many attending the memorial in Jimbaran walked past photos of the victims, posted on large black boards; some stopped to touch the faces of those they knew. Others sat in white chairs with their heads bowed as they listened to the speeches encouraging remembrance and healing. Meanwhile, others laid flowers and paused to hug at the bombing site in Kuta known as “ground zero.”Remembrances were also held across Australia to mark the anniversary. In the capital, Canberra, dignitaries and family members of those killed gathered at Parliament House to mourn.The attack, carried out by suicide bombers from the al-Qaida-linked group Jemaah Islamiyah, started a wave of violence in the world’s most populous Muslim nation, hitting an embassy, hotels and restaurants. Three years later, another bomb attack killed 20 people.Many visitors later shied away from the popular Hindu-dominated island, which survives on tourist dollars. Hotel occupancy plummeted 80 percent a year after the attacks, and foreign tourist arrivals fell by 70 percent. It was hit so hard the Indonesian government encouraged locals to visit Bali instead of traveling abroad.The 2002 attacks were “like a tsunami disaster for us here,” said Wayan Gota, a handicraft trader in Bali. “The attack not only killed hundreds of people, but also destroyed every sector of our lives and led to prolonged economic difficulties. … It took several years for us to recover from the paralysis.” New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t likelast_img read more

HFPC Panel Addresses Servicing HotTopics

first_img May 12, 2015 615 Views HFPC Panel Addresses Servicing Hot-Topics Mortgage service regulations have not yet fully caught up with significant industry changes over the past five years, according to an Urban Wire blog post by the Urban Institute and author Karan Kaul.In her post, Kaul summarizes the key topics discussed during a recent Housing Finance Policy Center (HFPC) seminar centered around mortgage servicing trends and moderated by CoreLogic’s Faith Schwartz. The panel Schwartz moderated including Michael Drayne, SVP at Ginnie Mae, Stephen Fleming, SVP at Phoenix Capital, and Laurie Goodman, HFPC director, among others.According to Kaul, topics discussed by the panel included the rise of non-bank mortgage servicers; the difference between non-bank servicers and large bank servicers; and the hot-button topic of industry reaction to current regulations.Under the topic of regulation, Kaul notes that one of most important takeaways was that due to “regulatory uncertainty and a broken servicer and compensations model access to credit is tight.” Kaul cites statements made by Goodman during the seminar that the high cost of servicing non-performing mortgages and regulatory uncertainty regarding the treatment of delinquent borrowers have made lenders cautious of making loans, even if the risk of default is slim. Other factors such as long foreclosure delays in judicial states, onerous, and arcane foreclosure guidelines, and at times different servicing requirements from different regulators have only made it more difficult to obtain credit.Mortgage servicing regulation is a difficult regulation to control, Kaul notes. Improper foreclosures, the robo signing scandal and servicer settlements with government authorities are all real borrower concerns. Conversely, a regulations that are inconsistent, overly prescriptive, and poorly targeted also drives lenders away and creates uncertainty. This pushes lenders away from low-income and less creditworthy borrowers.To see the full blog post and seminar takeaways, visit: Edit.Urban.org Housing Finance Policy Center Mortgage Service Regulations Urban Institute 2015-05-12 Staff Writercenter_img in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Servicing Sharelast_img read more

The love that never dies First loves what happens next

first_imgAdele, the Walker Brothers and Jennifer Lopez have all sung about it. Austen, Shakespeare, Blume have immortalised it in literature. It’s Jack and Diane, Bella and Edward, Miranda and Ferdinand; a small-town girl and a city boy, a single man in possession of a good fortune in want of a wife, the sun and the stars. Bernard Shaw described it as “only a little foolishness and a lot of curiosity.” Daphne du Maurier’s Mrs de Winter admitted she was “glad it cannot happen twice. For it is a fever, and a burden too, whatever the poets may say.” And even Einstein has weighed in on the issue, asking how one could “ever explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon?”The subject? First love. An apt theme for the coming week, which sees Valentine’s Day celebrated around the world and billions of dollars spent on securing – if not first love – then at least a date for the night. (Durex purportedly see condom sales soar in February, while more at-home pregnancy tests are sold in March than in any other month of the year!) According to a recent study, the average women will kiss 15 men, suffer four disaster dates and enjoy four one-night stands, enjoy two long-term relationships and get stood up once before she meets ‘The One’; men will be stood up twice and have six one-night stands before meeting the girl of their dreams.But if there’s one thing we all remember, it’s our first love: fondly remembered, distantly recalled, or deeply regretted, this week we’re taking a journey into the past – four wildly varying stories from four very different people on the subject of their very first passion…DOOMED LOVE“We were 19, in Aberdeen,” says Angus, a Paphos retiree now in his late sixties. “It was all writing poetry, buying flowers, walking barefoot across ashes just to stare at her door; holding hands, gazing into her eyes for hours…“Her name was Jane. Slim, curly brown hair, dark flashing eyes, outgoing. I’d just started at university and we’d met through family friends. This was the 1960s and, no matter what you’ve heard, things were pretty chaste: you’d go to a dance or two and pen a few odes. I mean, of course you wanted your girlfriend to have passionate sex with you. But you didn’t want to think about whether she might have done the same thing with another bloke!“I look back and think what a young twit I was,” he laughs. “That first love, so passionate, so romantic and so over the top. I mean I’ve always fallen hard – back in the 1960s, a friend of mine did say ‘Save some love for the world, Angus!’, but I’ve never quite managed; complete commitment and nobody else in the whole world seems to be the story of my life, from first love till now!”Eventually, desire dimmed for Jane and Angus. “It lasted for about three years, and we lost touch. I think it ended because that amount of passion just wasn’t sustainable, we grew apart – that’s just what happens. First love,” Angus sighs, “is always doomed from the start, though I would have argued you silly about that when I was in my twenties. That youthful ideal of love lasting for ever – well, that’s just bunk. Love changes as you age. You can still fall head over heels, but you tend to be more realistic about it. Although, as a hopeless romantic, I’m far from the authority on love!” UNREQUITED LOVE“She was called Angela,” says Marc, a 27-year-old Cypriot marketing manager who lives in Nicosia. “I grew up in the States, and met her at school when we were both about 14; we played flute in the same section of the orchestra. She was petite, with green eyes and brown hair, and we had a lot of interests in common. We just kind of clicked, and we chatted and flirted quite a bit. It was my first experience of love: very bittersweet, quite innocent, and hopelessly romantic – well, from my side at least! One Valentine’s Day I girded my loins and asked my French teacher to pass on a poem I’d written and a bracelet I’d bought. So she did. And then nothing happened. Nothing happened!” he exclaims.“We never even kissed,” Marc sighs. “I didn’t know what I’d done, it was the epitome of a completely unrequited first love! Okay, subsequently there were a few awkward glances over the sheet music, but that was it…” Sparing the blushes all round, the two ended up in different schools. Though a couple of years later the star-crossed lovers met once more…“We were both taking an extra-curricular German class, and there she was, sitting at the next desk! By this time, I’d mourned and moved on, so I was able to approach her. And the truth came out – she’d been seeing someone else at the time and thought I knew. No wonder she never responded!“I think,” Marc concludes, “that people often don’t realise how painful unrequited love can be, especially that very first passion. It’s all waiting and hoping, waiting and hoping – just one word or a quick smile can light up your life! Finally, you give up on the object of your affection, and go through what is almost a break up – but you’re completely alone. You’ve invested all this time and emotion; you beat yourself up for a few months about how much time you’ve wasted. And then? Well, you move on…” REKINDLED LOVEDanish native and business-woman Birgitte was 18 and travelling Europe with a high-school friend when she first met George. “He was part of a group we knew and, one day, he offered me a lift back to Larnaca from a barbecue… It was love at first sight! But I was due to return to Denmark the following day, and as both my friend and I were ‘good girls’, we dragged ourselves to the airport…“And then the miracle happened: The plane was delayed! We left the airport in a rush, found a phone booth downtown and called our parents to tell them we’d be back in a few days!” Living on borrowed time, and travelling the island together, Birgitte soon fell for George’s “energy, masculinity, humour, intelligence and the fact that we communicated on the same vibe.” When George moved to Athens, and Birgitte went to university in Copenhagen, the two continued their flying visits. But age and plans got in the way.“We were very young and not ready for binding ourselves seriously to another person, even though we were very attracted to each other. The last time I saw him was right before I headed for Japan. I tried to call him two times from Tokyo… My God! It was so hard to find an international telephone booth! Anyway, he didn’t answer – he says he never received the calls,” Birgitte laughs – “and I gave up the contact. I kept his love letters though. I knew, even back then, that I was special to him.”Despite a subsequent marriage, Birgitte never forgot her first love. “We had no contact for 30 years. But I thought of him sometimes, and always felt I’d never again visit Cyprus because of its associations with something so passionate and emotional.” However, in 2012, single once more, Birgitte came across a photo of herself on George’s Facebook page. And she sent him a message…The connection was still there, neither had ever forgotten the other, and visits from Cyprus to Denmark and back resumed after a gap of 30-odd years. “It was second love at second sight!” Birgitte reveals. “Nothing had changed, only the way we looked. We took it slowly, we didn’t rush, but after two years we decided to move in together here in Cyprus.” Four years on, George makes Birgitte feel “very happy every single day and very safe. I’ve learnt a lot from this relationship about myself, and I’m never bored with him. As well as being lovers, we’re best friends.” The ultimate goal for this world-travelling couple, Birgitte concludes, “is to buy a boat and live aboard and sail the world. And to be together for the rest of our lives…” LASTING LOVE“I was 13, he was 12 the first time I saw him,” says Rosemary, an organic farmer in her early fifties. “William went to school with my brother, but at that age I wasn’t really into boys so I didn’t really notice him. Then, when he was 16, we met again, and I remember thinking how gorgeous he was: he’d shot up and broadened out and was just so striking! He’d phone up to chat to my brother, and if I answered he’d always take the time to ask me how I was, how school was going – such a gentleman and so mature for his age!”Over the years, a strong friendship developed: “I got to know him slowly, and the more I knew of him, the more I liked. We had a similar sense of humour and laughed about the same things… There was just something about him, he was unlike anyone I’d ever met before.”On a family holiday to France, the connection strengthened… “And when we came back, he’d visit me at college and we’d spend whole nights talking about anything and everything. There was no canoodling!” Rosemary laughs. “Just a mutual respect and a deep connection. We both ended up in Cambridge and, one day, out of the blue, he walked into my office. I went bright red!”A date followed – “Beverly Hills Cop, I’ll never forget it!” – and the feeling of “always wanting to be with him. It was so strong, I think we both knew this was something different from the norm,” Rosemary adds. Friends and family knew they were witnessing a one-in-a-million relationship: two people who were, quite simply, made for each other. And the odd enforced separation only strengthened the bond: “After we’d been together for a few weeks, he had to go to Devon. He left me a bottle of Anais Anais – it’s been my favourite perfume ever since. And then, when I went to Australia for a year, I remember him sobbing, really sobbing, at the airport.”Rosemary and William married at the age of 27, neither ever having had a serious relationship with anyone else. “I’m so lucky to have found him. I know he was my first love, but it has lasted to this day, to this very day,” Rosemary laughs. “Even when we argue, we laugh about it afterwards. We’re never bored of each other – I still feel light in the heart every time I see him.”Today, with three grown-up daughters and a shared business, Rosemary and William “truly are each other’s happily ever after. It has lasted, I think, because of him. William is a truly amazing, unique man. And I just can’t help but love him more and more each day.”   You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoKelley Blue Book10 Electric Cars That Last the LongestKelley Blue BookUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
