Work-life 'balance' in Australia

Work-life conflict among older workers remains largely understudied, despite its potential impact on health, productivity and retirement decisions. This article examines work-life balance among older workers, 55 years of age and over, focusing on dissatisfaction with work-life balance, the most commonly reported reasons for dissatisfaction, and key factors and personal characteristics associated with work-life conflict. While there has been a plethora of work-life balance studies, most of this research has focused on younger workers with children. In Canada, work-life balance of older workers has started to garner attention, but ...
who performs a contemporary form of striptease at strip club establishments, public exhibitions, and private engagements. Unlike in burlesque , the performer in the modern Americanized form of stripping minimizes the interaction of customer and dancer, reducing the importance of tease in the performance in favor of speed to undress. Not every stripper will end her performance completely nude , though full nudity is common where not prohibited by law . The integration of the stripper pole as a nearly ubiquitous prop has also shifted the emphasis in the performance toward a more acrobatic, explicit expression versus the ...

my staycation
Nothin is happenin. But it is exactly the way i want to spend the last few weeks of 2008. And so i'm clearing the remaining annual leave from 2007 and am taking 2 weeks off to be on a staycation. It is MY period of time in which im staying home. I DO NOT want a plan, which is very unusual because i plan what i want to achieve in a day and i would plan stuff for G and i to experience and do together, or activities with my friends (as you can see from my previous posts!). But instead, I'm waking up at any time of the day i want to, I'm sleeping late and am not worrying about the responsibilities of the next day, ... market research, surveys and trends
Work. Life. Balance.: Supermodels and the Politics of Birth
Women need to be heard.  To be heard requires understanding and knowledge.  In this, women in America are very much like their sisters in Bangladesh, Tanzania and Guatemala. All over the world, women are still dying in childbirth.  A woman dies every single minute.  In the majority of countries it is usually due to the absence of good medical support.  In the USA, a staggering number of women still deliver in the ER without having received any pre-natal care.  There is also a disturbing trend that too much technology and interference is leading to creeping maternal mortality rates in America ... market research, surveys and trends

After the Barbecue. Perspectives on work-life balance in Australia
How quickly those words have become familiar to us, how rich they are in meaning, how endless the possibilities. Synonymous with the Prime Minister’s phrase “the barbecue stopper”, work life balance is a fashionable topic. It has been fashionable for a long time. Even a poor student of history must appreciate that industrialisation, in particular the separation of work from home, is the genesis of this particular question of balance. True, historians might also point out that life before industrialisation was so hard and precarious the question did not really arise. If you didn’t work you didn’t ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

he hoisted the trophy in triumph. Woods entered the Open Championship optimistic about adding another trophy to his cabinet and to inch closer to Jack Nicklaus. Instead Woods’ stroll up the 18th green was only good enough for a tie for 23rd finishing 13 strokes behind the champion and virtual unknown Louis Oosthuizen.

ELDERLY west Auckland patients are being diverted to Takapuna and waiting up to six hours for treatment because of bed and staff shortages at Waitakere and North Shore hospitals.
