Another success story for a New York College student! Manos Papyrakis, a Business Management student at Bolton University, is the co-founder of the DayTrip4U network which has been awarded by the World Travel Awards, as the best website in the world for excursions.

Often in class we talk about ‘transferrable skills’ - a skill that you can use in one environment that can also be used in another – for example – doing PowerPoint presentations. During your College career, you learn how to create and give good presentations to your instructors and classmates. This is a skill that will be valuable in your professional career when presenting to colleagues and clients.
In emotional eating we eat to cover emotional needs. Our emotions are very strong and overwhelming and can easily be misinterpreted as biological hunger.
World Mental Health Day is observed on 10th October each year. This year the World Health Organisation has announced that the goal of the 2020 World Mental Health Day is increased investment in mental health. We know from past experience of health emergencies and economic crises that the need for mental health and psychosocial support will substantially increase in the coming months and years. Investment in mental health services, after years of chronic underfunding in most parts of the world, is more important today than it has ever been.

Disinfectants are useful as enhancers in washing with lukewarm water and soap to treat pathogenic microorganisms, such as the new Coronavirus Covid- 19.
This virus just like other pathogen viruses structurally has an outer shell consisting of lipids and proteins. Due to lipids the shell is easily dissolved by soap and lukewarm water and the Coronavirus is destroyed. However soap and water are not always available while soaping does not kill all pathogens. This is why in some cases a disinfection may be required .
If someone had told you last year that you would spend the spring of 2020 in lockdown, due to a pandemic, what would you have said? You probably would have found it unbelievable. You probably would have said there was no way you could stay at home for days and weeks on end, without going “crazy”.
But it did happen. And whilst a heightened level of distress and anxiety are completely normal reactions to a situation as worrying and uncontrollable as a pandemic, most of us did not “lose” our minds. You may be experiencing some stress-related reactions may including iirritability, poor concentration, insomnia and reduced productivity. But we faced some of our worst fears and we survived. You probably learnt recently that you are more resilient than you had realised.
