5 Sentiments to Share in the Visitation Line

Going through the visitation line at a funeral is overwhelming. Sometimes it’s the first time seeing the family since the death of your loved one. Seeing everyone so distraught is emotionally draining and can leave us feeling stymied when it’s our turn to meet the family in the visitation line. Prepare yourself to come face to face with the family of the departed by thinking about what you’re going to say ahead of time. Here are 5 sentiments to share with the family as you make your way through the visitation line.

1. I’m Sorry for Your Loss

If you can’t think of anything else to say in the visitation line, tell the family that you are sorry for their loss. It lets them know that you recognize their sadness instead of minimizing their grief. Saying things like, «at least he lived a long life,» or «at least you got to spend those final days with her,» is insensitive and shows that you truly don’t understand the magnitude of their loss. Tell the family that you’re sorry for their loss and if that’s all you can muster up the strength to say, give them a hug and leave it at that.

2. Share a Memory

As you make your way through the line, share a story about the departed with the family. Whether it’s a memory that you all share together or one that is unique to you and the departed. Hopefully it will lighten their spirits, even if for just a moment.

3. Share Your Favorite Thing About the Departed

Say something like, «I just loved how your mom always had a smile on her face.» Or, «your sister had a special way of lighting up a room, I sure will miss her.» Pointing out the great qualities of the departed will remind the family of what a great person they had in their lives and keep the memory alive.

4. What They Meant to You

Telling the family just how important the departed was to you will give them a sense of pride: To know that their father was a mentor to you, or their daughter taught you everything you know about cooking. Share your profound experience with the departed with the family to let them know how much you will miss having them in your life.

5. Bring a Photo or Keepsake to Share

If you have a special photo of the departed or something that reminds you of them, bring it to the visitation and share it with the family. It’s a physical reminder of the departed, and can even show the family their loved one at a stage in his or her life that they had never known.

So often people fail to give any thought to what they’re going to say during the visitation and end up unintentionally saying something hurtful or insensitive. Plan ahead and think about what you want to say so the words don’t come out wrong when you come through the visitation line.

World Cup Spread Betting – Get Your Football Clubs in Order

Tough new guidelines from UEFA will make clubs operate within their means from the start of the 2012/13 season. The move is set to bring more discipline to club finances and also take the pressure off player’s wages and transfers fees. Clubs will have to compete within their revenue. UEFA believes it will encourage investment in infrastructure, sport facilities and youth academies. It also believes it will help the clubs to sustain themselves in the long term and settle their liabilities in the good time.

The break even clause is a new departure for UEFA whereby the clubs will be monitored for 3 years. They will not be allowed to spend more than they earn from revenue give or take 5 million. They will be able to spend what they like on their stadiums, training facilities, youth academy and their communities.

The huge investments of billionaire owners will be severely cut though. Over the 3 seasons they will only be able to put in 45 million euro over the break even point to help pay wages and transfer fees. This means that if the clubs owners want to go and buy their way into the Champions League they can’t. Sounds good in principle to stop the big clubs splashing the cash but it also stops the smaller clubs like Fulham who have a mega rich owner. They won’t be able to spend anymore of Al Fayeds money above the 45 million euro, the same amount as Mr Abramovich down the road at Chelsea. So suddenly it’s not so fair anymore as Fulham wouldn’t have the same revenue stream as Chelsea or the ways of increasing it either.

At the moment most of the Premier league clubs are alright. But Aston Villa, Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool would all set alarm bells ringing at UEFA with the huge losses they are incurring. It seems the huge debts some of the big clubs are holding won’t be taken into account at the moment. The system will only be used as monitoring tool for the moment and clubs won’t be banned from UEFA competitions. They would first be warned and put under review before been banned.

Another part of the clause states that clubs will not be able to owe money to rivals, players, staff or tax authorities at the end of the season. They’re hoping to avoid what happened at Portsmouth who went into administration owing millions in transfer fees, tax and VAT to name a few. I think I read somewhere yesterday that they had offered to pay their creditors 20% of what they owed them. A recent report on European clubs said that 50% of them where making a loss and that 20% where in serious financial danger.

In other World Cup Spread Betting football news. Michael Essien has failed to recover from injury and has been omitted from Ghana’s squad. Javier Hernandez will become a Man Utd player on 1st July after receiving a work permit and World Cup hosts South Africa beat Colombia 2-1 in a friendly at the Soccer City stadium.

And finally, while South Africa were beating Colombia, the Colombians were having their hotel rooms inspected by two of the employees who relieved them of their money. They were later arrested. Hope security is ramped up just a little bit during the next few weeks. Bonjour.

An Update on Transdermal Melatonin Use, Sleep Challenges and Jet Lag

Ask a frequent flyer about melatonin and you will probably be met with mixed reviews. While the melatonin website offers a long list of contra-indications (1) users still find it useful to a point. It now looks like the less is more dictum of using melatonin will replace the excessive use of the past. Research is now suggesting that low dose melatonin delivered via the skin (2) may better serve those with sleep challenges including jet lagged frequent flyers.

The jet lag problem faced by frequent flyers was never going to be cured by melatonin alone. Flyers looking for a consummate solution should look at all aspects of their frequent flying lifestyle, however a review of the current research suggests melatonin can play a healthy role in the arsenal of tools at the disposal of frequent flyers.

Here is a round-up of what we know about melatonin at the moment. Starting with melatonin suppression (3) , a lack encourages

  • Cancer proliferation
  • Immunity compromise
  • Disordered energy metabolism
  • Compromised reproductive function and
  • Altered eating behaviors

Normal melatonin production encourages

  • Super antioxidant protection throughout the body
  • Immunological modulation
  • Sleep onset and
  • Regulates hormonal function

The buzz surrounding melatonin shifted gears with research suggesting transdermal melatonin application may be of benefit where traditional melatonin use previously failed. Failures of note are oral melatonin's short elimination half-life cycle, which meant while sleep onset could be achieved, maintaining sleep for the duration was not guaranteed. Another challenge was the possibility of overloading the liver with oral melatonin and its metabolites. As disruptive as this is a knock on effect is in how these metabolites interact with other aspects of the endocrine system.

The average person needs 0.03mg of melatonin to fall asleep. The majority of melatonin pills have multiple times that, up to 300 times. Transdermal melatonin avoids the dangers mentioned above and is easy and convenient to use. Where it really shines is in its ability to keep you asleep in a different time zone when you would normally be awake because of the daylight.

Given the mixed results and possible pitfalls of traditional melatonin use, I was skeptical but hopeful of transdermal melatonin's promise. While my first preference is to always pick natural alternatives (like tart cherries in this instance), I can now say I would use transdermal melatonin alongside other healthy tools in my jet lag beating arsenal.

Mastering Mathematics – Divisibility Rules

To master mathematics, you have to know the rules. The more tools you have in that tool shed, the more likely one will get the job done. Here, we explore divisibility properties for the numbers up to 11. Once you add these properties to your arsenal, you will be that much further along to mastering this most difficult subject.

Divisibility Tests for Numbers:

2: If the number is even, that is, if the number ends in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8, then that number is divisible by 2. Thus, 358 and 4,034,032 are divisible by 2.

3: If the sum of the digits of the number is divisible by 3, then the given number is also. Thus, 324 and 1,345,611 are both divisible by 3 since the sums of their digits, 9 and 21, respectively, are both divisible by 3.

4: If the last two digits of the number are divisible by 4, then so is the number. Thus, 312 and 1,024 are both divisible by 4.

5: If the number ends in 0 or 5, then the number is divisible by 5. Thus, 1,000 and 405 are both divisible by 5.

6: If a number is divisible by both 2 and 3, then the number is divisible by 6. You can test divisibility by 2 and 3 using the tests above. Once this is established, you are certain that the number is divisible by 6. Thus, 312 and 4,002 are both divisible by 6. Another way of saying this is if the number is even and the sum of the digits is divisible by 3, then the number is divisible by 6.

7: This rule is probably the most labor intensive of all. Yet, this rule works very well, especially when dealing with large numbers. Let us illustrate it with a specific example. Take the number 2,667. To determine whether this number is divisible by 7, we do the following: we take the last digit, namely 7, multiply it by 2 to get 14 and subtract this from the three digits, namely 266, that remain after we remove the 7. Thus 266 – 14 = 252. Repeat the procedure and we have 2×2 = 4; 25 – 4 = 21, and 21 is divisible by 7. Generally, repeat the procedure until you get to a number that is a few multiples of 7, so that you recognize the divisibility by this number.

8: If the last three digits form a number divisible by 8, then the entire number is divisible by 8. Thus, 4,096 and 1,016 are divisible by 8.

9: As with 3, if the sum of the digits forms a number divisible by 9, then the number is too. Thus, 108 and 3,240 are divisible by 9.

10: This is probably the easiest rule. Simply, if the number ends in 0, then it is divisible by 10.

11: If the alternate sum of the digits results in a number that is divisible by 11, including 0, then the entire number is divisible by 11. For example, take the number 5,082. Perform 5-0+8-2 = 11. Since 11 is divisible by 11, obviously, then the entire number is as well.

Learn these divisibility properties and I guarantee that your knowledge in and ability with mathematics will grow exponentially. For those parents who want their children to perform better in math, then see that your children master these rules. For then, the sky truly will be the limit.
