[2006-09-20] Being single no longer carries stigma
Sept. 17 through 23 is Unmarried and Single Americans Week. While that may not sound like something to celebrate for people who are alone, they should at least know that, well, they’re not alone. The United States Census Bureau reports that in 2005, the number of unmarried and single Americans was 89.8 million, 41 percent of all U.S. residents who are 18 and older. Of that group, 14 percent are 65 and older and 54 percent are women. Twenty years ago, single women were stung by the Newsweek “Marriage Crunch” announcement that a woman over 40 is “more likely to be killed by a terrorist” th [...]

[2006-09-20] State Department introduces the Electronic Visa Application Form

However, until further notice, persons applying for no [...]
[2006-09-20] Russian Embassy issues warning on Thailand travel
The Russian Embassy in Thailand Wednesday warned Russian tourists to follow "a sensible approach" toward travel to this Southeast Asian country. The Thai military staged a successful coup Tuesday while Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra was in New York attending the 61st session of the UN General Assembly. "There is no imminent danger for Russian citizens, but one should use common sense when taking a decision to travel to Thailand, because the situation is unpredictable and people must decide for themselves whether to travel or not," said Irina Borisyuk, the embassy's spokesperson. Boris [...]

[2006-09-19] Ministry helps singles embrace their circumstances
Greg Blanc has been single his whole life, and though that is not his choice, the pastor of Calvary Chapel Community Church in Rapid City has learned to trust his marital status to God’s timing, not his own. Blanc will be the keynote speaker at the One Life to Live weekend retreat for Christian singles sponsored by Saturday Night Alive on Sept. 22-24 at Camp Judson near Keystone.“Single people have a tendency to chase after the ‘ring’ of being married,” said Blanc, who encourages them to see their single status as a spiritual relationship to be celebrated rather than a temporary, transitional [...]
[2006-09-19] Point-Counterpoint: Dating services: love at first email or treacherous trend?
Nina Varsava What’s love worth to you? I like to think that it’s unquantifiable, and am inclined instead to answer in romantic terms: love is priceless. But if love is invaluable, then why are so many people too busy or shy—or lazy—to find it? Many people claim that they suffer loveless lives because their other obligations get in the way. But if love is priceless, then you’d think it would be a priority. Thanks to the modern dating industry, people have the luxury of going about their own busy lives without the added stress of finding love for themselves. More and more people, for example, [...]
[2006-09-19] Living Single
Some people are living single.......contentedly. There are no thoughts of getting married and they are hot on the dating scene....void of commitment, and having a great sex life. Yet there are those who are single but might have not had much luck with love, but they desire to one day share every facet of their lives with someone via the holy sacrament of matrimony. For some, single issues are hard. Dating is hard and the fear of being hurt and deceived (again) looms, as well as other self esteem, moral and developmental concerns. To address these concerns, P.E.O.P.L.E. (Partners Energi [...]
[2006-09-19] Rap sheets and romance
My friend, let's call her Beth, just got out of a relationship with a man who had done some time — several times, actually. The charges were drug-related, not violent crime. All this happened before they met and, really, she didn't care. It was in the past, he had moved on from that and turned his life around. The relationship died, but it had nothing to do with his criminal activity or record. "We all make mistakes and are more than what we do or don't do," says Debbie Mandel, author of "Turn on Your Inner Light: Fitness for Body, Mind and Soul." "Someone who has committed a crime, paid the [...]
