Written by Alison Kramer

Raleigh, NC- The largest divorce firm inrepparttar state, Rosen Law Firm, says they're not surprised byrepparttar 149544 sharp increase among Army divorce rates and that more needs to be done to counselrepparttar 149545 spouses left at home and those deployed overseas.

“There’s a huge difference between typical divorces that we see on a daily basis andrepparttar 149546 military divorces that we’re seeing,” says Janet Fritts, a divorce attorney with Rosen Law Firm. “The majority of civilian couples we deal with have stopped communicating somewhere duringrepparttar 149547 marriage, but military couples have been communicating in more ways than ever before.”

Divorce experts say young military marriages, co-ed military units, financial decision-making, andrepparttar 149548 bureaucracy of being a military officer’s spouse are just some ofrepparttar 149549 factors contributing torepparttar 149550 already established problems of spousal absence and combat stress among military families.

“Allocation of finances is a huge problem because so many military members have no control over their finances when they’re overseas and their at-home spouses are spendingrepparttar 149551 monthly checksrepparttar 149552 way they see fit, sometimes on their new love relationships,” says Fritts. With deployments being more frequent and for longer periods, infidelity is another reason whyrepparttar 149553 Army divorce rates have sharply increased. “A lot of times it’srepparttar 149554 women who remain on base to take care ofrepparttar 149555 children and when her husband is gone for 6 months to a year, she may inevitably make new relationships withrepparttar 149556 men onrepparttar 149557 base,” says Fritts.

Military couples are usually far away from their families and they are not reminded of their marriage vows because they are so isolated on base or overseas. Fritts also explainsrepparttar 149558 growing co-ed military units are not helping either as more military members are establishing relationships withrepparttar 149559 opposite sex during wartime.

Accident At Work - Who's In Charge, You, Or The Company?

Written by Mohammad Latif

An accident at work is impossible to avoid! If it happens, it happens. It's something you didn't plan and it's an incident you have to live with. There's over 70% ofrepparttar population working on business premises, if not, it's business transports. So be warned now as accidents never sleep.

Work accidents are not common as there is a huge impact from Health and Safety. Checks are carried out periodically to ensure a workplace is free from hazards, to prevent accidents. If however, they do occur,repparttar 149543 cause ofrepparttar 149544 accident is investigated and future prevention is carried out. So there is always a big helping hand fromrepparttar 149545 Health and Safety Standards.

If an accident at work does occur, it's embarrassing. Colleagues can't believe it happened to you and become more precautious with their role. They feel sorry for you for now, not being able to competently complete your role. So they give you a hand. Initially there's remorse all around... it becomes an understanding culture.

After a while it becomes a pain, especially for your colleagues who keep putting a halt to their job to help you. Frustration arises and in their heads they'll be thinking. 'Now he's takingrepparttar 149546 ****!' But you're NOT. You arerepparttar 149547 one that hadrepparttar 149548 accident at work and your body welcomes injuries in different ways to others. After a while tension gathers inrepparttar 149549 atmosphere and by now you're reported torepparttar 149550 supervisor and disciplinary action is just roundrepparttar 149551 corner.

You feel let down. In a workplace environment, business is business, no matter who you are. You have your own targets and deadlines to achieve. If they're not met, you will jeopardise your position. This isrepparttar 149552 game for any business. Each worker has a family to feed, so they need work to fulfil that criteria.

Also an accident at work can possibly jeopardise your position. It could prevent you from carry out your 'full' responsibility. Initially everybody understands, but after a while they'll be thinking 'it was only a small fall'. But only you know it wasn't just a small fall. It's not only made an adjustment to your working life, it also messed up your social and family life. You can't sleep, shower properly, play sports or even have sex. But only you see that side ofrepparttar 149553 picture, your colleagues don't. They only see you at work.

Back to your working life... over time,repparttar 149554 supervisor now reports you torepparttar 149555 person above and you're just waiting for your name to be called to seerepparttar 149556 manager. Now it's going to hit you. You're either, get laid off, get demoted, or transferred to another department. This is where it hurtsrepparttar 149557 most. The managers can't do anything but take necessary actions to ensure your position is 'fully' meeting its targets.

But he's your best friend... so, it's not his company and even if your best friend doesn't take action against you, someone above his ranking will take action against him. So either way something will happen to your role. Remember, if a business does not fulfil its role to provide product and services to its' buyers or users, thenrepparttar 149558 definition of business is not fulfilled.
