The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2021-01-28T02:07:00Z Well-Educated and Single? Join the exclusive Club where you are more than a swipe 2021-01-28T02:07:00Z well-educated-and-single-join-the-exclusive-club-where-you-are-more-than-a-swipe Physical appearance has become very important on most dating apps because we only spend a few seconds on rejecting or accepting what we see. But for the well-educated elite singles, this is not the way to go. They have much higher standards. They want a space where they can meet like-minded singles. They want to be able to develop an intellectual and professional relationship before deciding if they want to take that relationship to a romantic level. The Educated Singles Club is such a place. It is an exclusive club where education level and identity is verified for all applicants before they are offered membership. That “The Educated Singles Club” is a club and not a dating site is an important signal to send. A lot of well-educated singles are perfectly happy with being single, but they will like to meet like-minded singles online and for social- or professional events. And that is a unique feature with The Educated Singles Club. Educated Singles is the brainchild of Dr. Finn Majlergaard. While completing his postgraduate and doctoral studies at some of the world’s leading universities, Finn became aware of the impact that work, travel and study commitments were having on fellow singles. Together with his team he started to research why so many well-educated people around the world are single. That became the beginning of The Educated Singles Club. QUOTE “Most of our members don’t like the current dating culture where only your physical appearance mens something. They do however like that they have the opportunity to mingle and socialise in an stress-free, safe environment” Educated Singles is now proving to be the answer many high-flyers are looking for. The Educated Singles community is more than just an opportunity to meet a partner or soul mate. For men as well as women, the website and offline activities can also be an opportunity to find travel partners, form business relationships and foster other interest based relationships.This community provides online content and services exclusively for the members such as personal development articles on work/life balance, travel, education and career management. As well as offline events run world-wide targeting the interests and personalities of highly educated individuals. Over half of all Australian Women intend on taking pleasure into their own hands this Valentine’s Day new research reveals. 2021-01-27T22:46:56Z over-half-of-all-australian-women-intend-on-taking-pleasure-into-their-own-hands-this-valentines-day-new-research-reveals Nearly one-fifth (17%) of women aged 18-50, or 1 million individuals, intend to purchase a new product to use on Valentine's Day, either for themselves or with a partner. One in ten Australian women say that pleasure products will play an important role for Valentine’s Day this year, with married women more likely to say this than single women. Women with children under 18 at home are more likely to have received a pleasure product since COVID-19 (17%) compared to women without children at home (13%). Over half (56%) of women aged 18-50 feel comfortable discussing pleasure products with their partner. Women in any kind of relationship are more likely to have purchased a pleasure product for themselves since COVID-19 compared to single women (25% vs 18%). January 2021: The Pandemic has put pleasure front of mind for Australian women, not just for themselves but to spice things up with partners. New research[1] has revealed that nearly one-fifth of Australian women, or almost 1 million individuals, intend on purchasing a new pleasure product to use on Valentine’s Day this year, either for themselves or for a partner. The research conducted by leading pleasure products brand LELO has uncovered the changing Australian attitudes and opinions towards pleasure products during COVID-19. It reveals interesting findings in the lead up to Valentine’s Day around pleasure toys, communication and those who intend on taking pleasure into “their own hands.” Lockdown lovers While human interaction was limited during isolation, Australian women were reaching for a different kind of company. Many used lockdown as the perfect opportunity to strengthen bonds with partners or enjoy some 'self-care' time alone by purchasing pleasure products for the first time. Among women aged 18-50 who have purchased or received a pleasure product since the COVID-19 pandemic/ lockdown (March 2020), 4 in 10 (39%) said this was the first time this has ever happened, that is the equivalent of approximately 765,000 individuals! The research reveals discrepancies across the generations with those who admitted to receiving or purchasing pleasure products for the first time, with Gen Z women the most likely to say this is the first time (52%) compared to Millennial (37%) and Gen X women (33%). When it comes to women with children, women with children under 18 at home were more likely to say this has been the first time they have purchased or received a pleasure product compared to those without children at home (48% vs 33%). Surprisingly, the results revealed that partners are most likely introducing pleasure products into the relationship for the first time, than women purchasing for themselves, with the research showing that 43% of women have received a pleasure product from their partner compared to only 30% of women purchasing products for themselves. Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby! While some are intimidated to admit their most private desires, or speak about pleasure, according to the research, nearly two thirds (63%) of Australian women in any type of relationship with a partner, agree that they feel comfortable discussing pleasure products with their partners. Interestingly, women in any kind of relationship are more likely to have purchased a pleasure product for themselves (25%) compared to single women (18%). When it comes to speaking with their partners, Millennial women are most likely to feel comfortable with 62% of participants agreeing, compared to 51% of Gen Z and 49% of Gen X. However, when it comes to discussing sexual products with friends, Gen Z is most likely spilling the tea with 50% comfortable to share, followed by Millennial Women 44% and Gen Z women at 32%. Joana Layug, Head of Sales and Marketing Lelo Oceania says, “since the COVID-19 Pandemic sent Australia into lockdown, approximately 1.9 Million individuals have purchased or received a pleasure product, and a high percentage of women are comfortable to talk about it with partners or friends, the research validates just how far we have come in terms of making pleasure toys a part of our lives. “It is promising to see such a positive shift in the way Australian women are taking control of their own pleasure and communicating with their partners and friends,” says Joana. Valentine’s Day This Valentine's Day may look a little different to last year as lockdown has shown couples and singles how to take their pleasure to new heights. With one-fifth of women, the equivalent of nearly 1 million individuals, intending to purchase a new product to use on Valentine's Day, either for themselves or with a partner, it is clear that pleasure products will play an important role this Valentine’s Day! Interestingly, married women are more likely to prioritise pleasure products this year, with 15% saying these products will play an important role for Valentine's Day compared to 9% of single women. But its clear married women are not using these products in their relationships, but rather sourcing their own pleasure this year, with 12% purchasing products for themselves compared to 5% of single women.

Most dating sites exploit your desire to find a partner 2021-01-27T08:12:31Z most-dating-sites-exploit-your-desire-to-find-a-partner We have become used to free services. Social media profiles are free but still the companies behind them are making a lot of money. How can that be? They earn their money partly from advertisers and partly from selling information about you to third part companies who can use that information for targeted marketing. Most dating sites are no different. They tempt you with free profiles. What do you have to loose? Everything.  Many dating sites who are trying to lure information out of you have a lot of fake profiles and some of the have robots pretending being users that sends you messages if you haven’t logged in for a while. It is easy getting the feeling of being betrayed and exploited. If something is free for you - you can be sure that you are the product. The Educated Singles Club was created based on very different values In the light of how many social media and dating sites have misused the user’s private information Educated Singles has been created with a very different business model. First of all - Educated Singles is not a dating site. It is a club, where people can meet for networking, socialising and of course dating. Members need to have at least a masters degree in order to join. There is a rigid identity and academic credential check before a new member is accepted. Educated Singles has no free profiles. CEO Finn Majlergaard says “It is an honest and transparent business model. Like most other clubs the members pay a fee for the membership. And the fee is used to cover the cost and develop services for the members” Having no free profiles is an effective way of eliminating fake profiles. We compare the name on the payment with the name on the profile. And fake profiles is a key concern for well-educated singles when they consider joining an online community. Finn Majlergaard: “When we launched Educated Singles we were offered thousands of fake profiles we could feed into the system. I was quite chocked by that. I didn’t know it was that organised. Even more chocking was the price they asked for the thousands of fake profiles. It was incredibly low, which means they must have a lot of customers.” Visit https://educatedsingles.com to learn more about what the club has to offer and join if you are a well-educated single with at least a masters degree.

Three distinct 7- and 14-night itineraries will each feature a unique lineup of bucket-list destinations – including three new ports of call in the islands of Tobago, Trinidad and St. Vincent. Showcasing the natural beauty and cultures of the region, weeklong sailings will island hop to a different destination every day or offer late-night stays in the famed ABC islands – Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. Grandeur’s longer escapes will tout an overnight stay in Aruba coupled with visits to Cartagena, Colombia; Colon, Panama; and Puerto Limon, Costa Rica, among others. “We are excited to grow our longstanding partnership with Barbados and introduce Bridgetown as Royal Caribbean’s newest home port. Sailing from the heart of the Windward Islands unlocks new memorable vacations to share with family and friends in breathtaking places, such as Grenada, St. Lucia, and now St. Vincent, Trinidad and Tobago,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “The pink-sand beaches and unexpected adventures across Barbados also make it an ideal destination for our guests to experience even more of the Caribbean charm and culture before or after their cruise.”     “After the year the industry and region have had, this is a shining light to look forward to this coming winter season. We have wanted to see for some time more homeporting operations from Barbados, the incorporation of pre- and post-stay vacations which expose cruisers to the best Barbados has to offer and at a regional level, the development of new itineraries that elevates the cruise experience throughout the Caribbean,” said Senator the Hon. Lisa Cummins, Minister of Tourism and International Transport for Barbados. “So, we are extremely pleased to extend the welcome mat for Grandeur of the Seas to Barbados.

Applicants will receive a free haircut at any of the 190 salons nationwide.The initiative – just in time for the new school term – is designed to raise awareness around the importance of personalised experiences, whether that’s something as routine as a haircut, or as fundamental as how children learn. Research released today shows that 85% of parents agree their children’s clothing and accessories reflect their personalities, 93% of parents claim to buy toys and games that appeal to their child’s personal interests and 86% admit their children only participate in extra-curricular activities that are of interest to them. Despite this personalised approach to our kids’ lifestyles, it appears parents do not believe this applies to the current educational system, with 77% agreeing it’s a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. 88% felt their child could do with more individualised attention at school and 90% agreed that, now more than ever, kids need additional learning support.Cluey Learning offers school children live, face-to-face tutoring support in a 1-to-1 and small group setting. Kids can learn at their own pace, in their own way,in addition to school. Its online adaptive platform delivers a personalised experience like no other, with over 790 tutors, bespoke tutor and student matching and an array of digital technologies to aid performance and delivery of the Australian National Curriculum. Cluey Learning Chief Learning Officer, Dr. Selina Samuels says, “It’s hard to reconcile that we expect such a deep level of personalisation for our everyday experiences, yet we don’t demand the same for our children’s learning. Because, just as you wouldn’t expect your child to have the same hairstyle as every other student in their school, you wouldn’t expect them to be identical learners. Back to School is the perfect time to reflect on the current learning needs of your children, so we’ve partnered with Just Cuts - the largest hairdressing company in the Southern Hemisphere - to offer parents a helping hand during this busy and expensive time of year. At the same time, we hope this initiative draws attention to the benefits of personalisation in every aspect of our lives - whether that’s a haircut, a coffee order, or our children’s learning - because it’s important our needs are met.” Additional key findings from the research include: 65% of parents consider purchasing new stationery an essential part of Back to School planning, but less than 1 in 4 (23%) look at signing up with a tutor88% of parents wish there was more time to go back and revise any areas their child may not have understood during the school term/year to ensure they’ve grasped the concepts87% of parents agree that they would love more feedback on their child’s learning progress than just school reports and parent-teacher meetings84% of parents agree that the pace at which their child is taught a new subject or concept doesn’t necessarily suit themSchool children who take up the offer of a free Back to School haircut will also receive 20% off Cluey.

Samira Vivette's pastel pink poetry collection 2021-01-12T18:54:40Z samira-vivette-puts-a-twist-on-poetry-with-her-best-selling-debut-collection Author and poet, Samira Vivette has made it to the top, already by reaching out directly to the readers’ hearts! Her book release, 'Pastel Dreams and Glittered Hearts' is a 355-page collection of poems and prose. It is pastel pink, and because it packs in the mixed bag of themes, the author lovingly calls it ‘a mixed bag of candy.’ Each chapter in this book works on a heart-rending theme of emotion. It stirs, shakes, consoles, motivates, and comforts the readers.  The book comprises ten chapters, each delving into a theme – some light and some dark. There are topics of darkness, broken friendships, toxic love, anxiety, solitude, memories, femininity, finding your soulmate, grief, and memories. Samira Vivette puts a twist on poetry as the themes in her book are entirely different from one another, with one reader, Asia, on Goodreads referring to the book as a “carnival of emotions”. The true essence of poetry is to express and pull the heartstrings in the ways one would never know. ‘Pastel Dreams and Glittered Hearts’ wove in similar magic in the hearts of the readers in the right way. The book raced up in the Best Seller's Category just in 24 hours of its release. Top critics have claimed a distinctive style of writing to be catchy and heart-rending.

Music, Google Apps, audiobooks, calls and text are among the features that top the wish lists of young smartphone users. For parents, reducing exposure to online risks is paramount when considering a first smartphone purchase for their child. The ideal mobile for first time users, the G-mee Connect smartphone facilitates on-the-go entertainment and social connections but has no camera and integrates in-built parental controls to quickly adjust device functionality to create a safe online experience for young users. Created by Aussie father and tech expert, Charlie Brown, the G-mee Connect smartphone is designed to help kids develop their online readiness to become technologically informed and confident users into the future. In 2020, just under half (46%) of Australian children aged 6 to 13 used a mobile phone, up from 41% in 2015(1). In the 14-17 age bracket, 9 in 10 Australian teens have a mobile phone(2). Interestingly, nearly 6 in 10 young people (8-17 years) who reported a negative experience online, identified emotional and/or psychological impacts as a result(3). A majority (94%) of parents identify their child's online safety as a priority, however parents lack confidence in dealing with certain negative online experiences their child may face, such as cyberbullying and online threats(4). To support a positive online experience for young users, the G-mee Connect smartphone comes with an in-built App Lock to ensure users only access and engage with age appropriate content. The smartphone also enables download of a free Call Manager App, giving parents the ability to disallow calls from specific numbers and phone use at specific times of the day. “The G-mee Connect smartphone is all about giving everyday Australian families an affordable first phone option that prioritises online safety for young users.
