Tackle the list from least stress to most because you'll usually have more input and control over those causing the least stress. Solving the small problems first will give you the confidence and know-how to tackle the areas of major stress. You'll also find that reducing stress in some areas will reduce its overall level. This makes the bigger problems smaller.Once you isolate the situations and causes of your stress you can deal with them. Here are some examples: When a new assignment gets dropped in your inbox, make sure you ask your manager about its deadline and priority versus other things on which you're working. Also, don't settle for an "it's-due-yesterday" response. Also, make sure you don't get angry because your workload increased. Instead think about what you can learn by completing the project. Attitude is everything.If you find your productivity bogged down by an endless string of meetings, then take control by developing a meeting agenda. Make sure each meeting creates a list of to-do's, individual responsibilities and realistic deadlines before the meeting ends.When it comes to answering email and taking phone calls, schedule specific times to deal with them. Put the schedule on your daily calendar.A recent New York Times story on the shortage of doctors willing to serve additional low-income patients in California at the reimbursement rates they receive perfectly illustrates the short-sighted thinking that has gone into the Medicaid expansion part of Obamacare. Mississippi and Massachusetts may not appear to have all that much in common, but each possesses some of the world's leading researchers into heart health. Soon, thanks to a $30 million study funded by the American Heart Association, experts in the two states will be collaborating more closely than ever before, trying to develop more effective approaches to combating illness and promoting health. If you were up before the sun today, and it was clear enough, and you looked in just the right spot, you might have caught a glimpse of what's left of Comet ISON, whose close encounter with the Sun has, in all likelihood ended its ancient space odyssey.A month ago, we figured there might be three people who believed that the Obamacare website healthcare.gov would be fixed by the administration's self-selected Nov. 30 deadline — Mr. Obama, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and Jeffrey Zients, the consultant brought in to fix it.Former Department of Public Health chemist Annie Dookhan's guilty plea a week ago has sent her to prison for three to five years. Massachusetts enjoys some of the nation's finest craft beers. Just look to Worcester, where we enjoy local favorites such as Wormtown. Many small breweries were built upon a simple formula of a good beer, authentic brewing methods, and reliable business partnerships. The overwhelming growth and success that many of the commonwealth's brewers have experienced can be attributed to one partner in particular — the brewer's distributor. The 320,000 Massachusetts residents between the ages of "1px"6 and "1px"9 got dreadful news recently when the state Senate voted to sharply increase the commonwealth's minimum wage. For many teens, particularly the least educated, the least linguistically able, the poor and minorities, the new $"1px""1px" per hour minimum wage would mean no wage.Thanksgiving candles will glow today, and for Jewish Americans, so will menorah candles. With Hanukkah having begun last night, there are double the blessings today. Although we associate Thanksgiving with that first feast shared between the Wampanoags and the settlers of Plymouth Plantation in "1px"62"1px", the word "thanksgiving" was not used by Governor William Bradford until two years later. That day of thanksgiving was proclaimed at the end of a months-long drought, and probably took place at the end of July "1px"623.Can another year have gone by? Yes, somehow the Earth has made another orbit and holiday time has come again. Now we start a season filled with feasts and hospitality, a time of light and celebration — and too much to eat. It is also a time when philanthropy is held up for greater visibility. This is no coincidence. A time to give is also a time to think about those whose needs are great and those who lack the means to join in the rituals of generosity. Donating to a political campaign is a way of expressing personal approval. But donors should know that contributions may be spent, legally, on things they might have thought would come from personal or expense accounts.The proposed Commercial Corridors Overlay District, being advanced as part of the city of Worcester's efforts to revitalize its downtown and adjoining commercial corridors, is shining new light on an old tussle — parking.November is Youth Homelessness Awareness Month. This is an important time to remember that while most young people in Massachusetts are on the path to a successful and healthy adulthood, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education estimates that nearly 6,000 high school students are homeless and on their own. Three civic leaders whose contributions have been enjoyed by residents young and old have been given fitting recognition from the Worcester Parks and Recreation Commission.The interim deal reached with Iran over the weekend has turned the world's head, and for good reasons. The Massachusetts Senate last week voted overwhelmingly to enact a 37.5 percent increase in the state's minimum wage, from the current $8 an hour to $"1px""1px" an hour in 20"1px"6.The Oxford Dictionaries "Word of the Year" is an amusing way to try to encapsulate a year into a telling word or phrase. "Unfriend" (2009) and the verb "GIF" (20"1px"2) have made it onto the U.S. version of the list. "Sudoku" (2005) and "credit crunch" (2008) are among British Word of the Year winners. With the children home for the long weekend, chocolate chocolate chip cookies came easily to mind and more easily to the screen. Too easily. There were vegan options and gluten-free options. With coconut or with date sugar. Dark or milk chocolate. With nuts or without and if with, which nuts? Even Martha Stewart, who turns out to have a pretty reliable online recipe presence (it's a good thing) had too many different recipes for the same cookie (that's not such a good thing). Eventually, I just threw a little cocoa in my regular chocolate chip cookie recipe and called it my own inventive twist. Where once the Moosewood Cookbook and the Barefoot Contessa reigned side by side with an old Joy of Cooking and my mother's Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, now I click through the lists of dishes on smittenkitchen.com and gardenofeating.com. The cookbooks now have websites, too, of course, but the food blogs seem, rightly or wrongly, to be more current. The writers post new recipes frequently and discuss their experiments in conversational asides that seem to bring the reader right into the kitchen with them. If I have a question about an ingredient or how to do something, the answer is often in the comments or in a later post. It's the Contessa's soup recipe that I'm using, but she doesn't do the conversion for me. Nor does she tell me, as the comment section does in a few choice words, that cups measure volume, not weight, so who am I kidding with my silly question? And, for truly creative cooking advice from the Web, there is always "The Onion." Its article, ""1px""1px" Steps for Cooking a PERFECT Thanksgiving Turkey," posted on Nov. 20. South Africa chased successfully for the first time in eight matches but they had their bowlers to thank for setting up a moderate target. They restricted Pakistan to a score under 200 on a surface where extra bounce and turn made batting tricky. Vernon Philander, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Ryan McLaren and Wayne Parnell all got the ball to kick up from back of a length and tested Pakistan's line-up with tight lines. Contrastingly, Pakistan's attack, sans Junaid Khan, only really troubled South Africa with their spinners, whose mid-innings strangehold threatened to send the hosts into freefall. AB de Villiers batted with the patience required to steer his team and save them from being whitewashed in a three-ODI series for the first time in more than 20 years. The loss would have left Pakistan wondering what could have been had they had Shahid Afridi, who was rested, as a bowling option in this game.Pakistan made four changes in total to their XI and despite the new-look outfit, Misbah-ul-Haq promised not to take a relaxed approach to the final fixture.He was the only one who stuck to that resolution, with a customary half-century amid the collapse. The memo was missed by the rest, starting with Ahmed Shehzad, who played lazily at the fourth delivery of the morning to give Hashim Amla a regulation catch at first slip. Asad Shafiq also failed to make use of his opportunity but Umar Amin showed better temperament. In his first appearance in this series, he was asked to open and did the right thing by giving himself time to get his eye in before attacking. With Sohaib Maqsood in good touch, the pair looked capable of setting Pakistan up. They scored 4"1px" runs in the 47 balls they were together before a well-judged catch by Amla at slip ended their stand and indicated the problems extra bounce would cause. Ryan McLaren pitched back of a length and Amin got a thick edge as he fended at it to force Amla into a jump. McLaren continued to trouble Pakistan's batsmen with the lift he generated. His short ball also accounted for Masood, who played the pull too early and popped the ball up for McLaren to complete the a nifty catch in his follow-through. When Umar Akmal too was the victim of a stunning catch - by his opposite number who dived one-handed to take it - Pakistan were teetering. They inched even closer to unravelling when Bilawal Bhatti and Anwar Ali were dismissed in the space of three balls to leave Pakistan at 97 for 7. It was a situation Misbah-ul-Haq has been in many a time and one he knows how to navigate expertly. He found an ally in Abdur Rehman, who was willing to rotate strike and spend time at the crease. The pair negotiated the short ball barrage well but also flirted with danger. Misbah was on 43 when he almost threw it away, cutting off Wayne Parnell. JP Duminy at backward point put down a simple chance. Rehman lofted McLaren to third man but the substitute fielder spilled it. The pair posted 5"1px" before Rehman holed out to deep square leg and Misbah was left to finish off.Back to back sixes off Imran Tahir, whom Misbah charged to smack straight down the ground, took him three-quarters of the way to a century, but as been the case throughout his career, he was left stranded with Pakistan on a below-par score. South Africa's openers set about their task briskly. Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock blitzed their way 34 off the first five overs against a Pakistan opening pair that offered width and strayed on the pads. Had they tempered their enthusiasm with some caution, they could have batted through but de Kock was the first to go when he top-edged a pull off Bilawal Bhatti. As soon as debutant Henry Davids arrived, so did the spin threat and it immediately slowed South Africa down. Davids battled to read Ajmal's line and after facing seven balls from him was put out of his memory when he was stumped.Amla continued fluently and it was only when he was run-out that South Africa's nerves would have tightened. JP Duminy and AB de Villiers were tied down by Pakistan's spinners, which resulted in even Maqsood being given a bowl. Duminy was eventually tempted by Rehman's flight. He went forward to try and play on the leg-side and the ball hit bat, pad and then settled into Akmal's glove. David Miller provided the aggression to get South Africa out of what was becoming a pressure situation. By the time he flashed off Tanvir, the match was all but won and with the required run-rate under control, de Villiers and McLaren could knock it around until they reached the target. McLaren did not last until the end but de Villiers was unbeaten while Wayne Parnell smoked the winning runs with more than "1px""1px" overs to spare. This Forum has Become Pak vs india instead of SA vs Pak discussion. There is no comparison between Dhoni or Misbah Simply becuase: Dhoni lead from the front where Misbah is not visible in the team... Dhoni Won so many game for India, I dont remember any game won by Misbah For Pak but i remember many Pak lost becuase of Misbah.... Dhoni is Financial strong and backed up by strong sponsors where No one is interesting sponsoring Misbah except political people who want their relative to play for Pak..... Lastly Indian is only good in India as always when there was no rohit, Kholi or dhawan and they are the toughest team to beat in Indian ground but they hardly win series outside india, (check last 2 series outside india) where has got decent record home and away due to bowlers..... each gifted by different qualities and it will good to see them playing against each other.laho"1px""1px""1px": I don't need to give you justifications. I was telling you facts. Don't bring ODIs and t20s in same set of stats. He made 38 in ODIs five innings ago. Be prepared to see your co called super star in Karachi Dolphins only. As the commentators said Pak and SA matched in nearly every department and shared the series in all format. Test are drawn, ODIs are shared "1px"-"1px" and T20s "1px"-"1px" ( One T20 was in Completely Pak favor when ended by rain, They just miscalculated it otherwise they easily won it onD/L). Last ODI was just an exercise. For Indian Fans it's very simple, If Indians win any series they are better than Pak. SA are a very talented side in all department and all format but their bowling is exceptional. Indians came here with great batting sides before but always failed. They don't have Tendulakar, Dravid, Sehwag, Laxman and CO this time so it's not easy for them. SA batting is very talented and they bat long and not easy for Indian bowlers to get "1px"0 SA wickets. mzm"1px"49. great justification... plz also justify excellent performances of nasir, umer amin and hafeez. I think nasir in 4 matches of SA tour made 2, 24, "1px"9, "1px"8, in UAE "1px"9, "1px", 0, 38, 32, 37 excellent....... In last "1px"5 matches, he didnt cross 38 score. it is justifying you greatly.Pak was lucky to win the first 2 matches. Mighty SAs showed their colours at the end. With this weak batting line up Pak will never beat a great team like Ind. Hopefully they will performe better in their next series against weak Lankans. diehardINDIANcricketfan i think ur quality of the Indian batsman is better than our pakistani bowlers. some ind team hetter says that nothing big when india win at home but when sa aust wins at home they called them great,what a double standarad.btw india win outside also plz check the records.i think india won "1px"3 matches out of "1px"5 in outside india(in eng,wi).some people says ind pitches are flat
