There under a shady spot, I sat down a surveyed the surroundings.           Here, far away from claustrophobic classrooms, rushing crowds, busy sidewalks and congested streets, I enjoyed the solitude of nature. As I took my seat on a flimsy woody bench, and looked around me, I can see a flurry of activities. Birds flew gracefully and noiselessly above me while bees traveled flirtatiously from tree to tree, colourful butterflies flit about here and there flapping their fragile wings and ants scurry in a single file carrying bits of food on their tiny backs.             A soft cool breeze blowed. I can hear the soft rustle of leaves. The air is heavy with the scent of shrubs and grasses coupled with the scent of ripe durians.             I lied on my back with my hand clasped behind my head and watched streaks......

Holidays and Leave 2003

...INTRODUCTION Holidays and leave entitlements fall into four main categories. They are described in section 3 of the Holidays Act 2003: Section 3: Purpose The purpose of this Act is to promote balance between work and other aspects of employees’ lives and, to that end, to provide employees with minimum entitlements to— (a) annual holidays to provide the opportunity for rest and recreation: (b) public holidays for the observance of days of national, religious, or cultural significance: (c) sick leave to assist employees who are unable to attend work because they are sick or injured, or because someone who depends on the employee for care is sick or injured: (d) bereavement leave to assist employees who are unable to attend work because they have suffered a bereavement. Holidays Act 1981 The Holidays Act 1981 consolidated the existing law but it was not a substantial redraft of the law and the legislation gave rise to difficulties in interpretation and application. Annual holidays: Until 1944, there was no legislation providing for paid holidays or leave. An employee’s entitlement depended on the terms and conditions of employment. The Annual Holidays Act 1944 introduced two weeks paid annual leave for all workers. This was increased to three weeks by the Annual Holidays Amendment Act 1974. It is now four weeks. Public holidays: Public holidays were introduced in the Public Holidays Act 1910 They were not made a statutory entitlement for......

How I Spend My Summer Holidays

...Vacations are the best time to relax and enjoy and I eagerly wait for my summer vacations every year. Every year my school closes in the middle of the month of May and reopens by the end of June. Annual exams get over and the results are declared. This time I got promoted to class nine from class eight. After the hard labor for the examinations, I wanted some rest and also some refreshment. Hence I put aside my books for a few weeks. Next day morning I went out to play with my friends. It was a very hot and sunny day so we decided to play indoor games. In the evening I asked my father and mother to take me to any of the hill stations because I wanted to beat the heat. My father told me that we cannot go to a hill station because all the hotels and resorts are booked beforehand only. It was too hot, the sun was scorching and the wind was deliberating. Fortunately my uncle had invited my family to Haridwar where he had reached two weeks earlier. Me and my parents reached Haridwar.

Holiday Shopping

...Holiday Shopping - The Economy’s Final Push from the Red Black Friday is the Grand Marshall of the holiday shopping season; it starts a race in holiday season for shopping and spending, which in return creates new job opportunities. Shoppers race around the malls looking for the best gifts at the best prices. The frenzy of the holiday season combined with the sales of Black Friday are greatly beneficial to the US economy. As supply and demand increases with the holiday season season, so does spending and the job market. Black Friday is more than just a day of sales, it is a day to help boost the economy spending and profit. One of the theories behind the name “Black Friday” really sums up the effects of the day. The story says that majority of the year, retailers are operating at a financial loss. To show this loss, the accountants note the negative totals in red ink. Starting with the Black Friday sales retailers really begin to turn a profit, and climb out of the negative holes they live in all year. Once out of the negative, accountants begin to use black ink to show the totals. Thus, “Black Friday” was born. This story may not be the most accurate or historically backed, but there is some truth behind it as far as the after affect of Black Friday. Retailers make a large portion of their yearly profit during the holiday season. It may not have started out as big as it is today, but at present time the Friday after Thanksgiving is a huge shopping day in the......

Jewish Holiday of Hannukah

...Name: Instructors name: Course: Date: Jewish Holy Day of Hanukkah With many religions worldwide, there are special and dedicated times of the year where followers celebrate the associated holidays with the religion practiced. I had the privilege of celebrating one of the historic Jewish Holy Days called Hanukkah or Chanukah with my friends from the Jewish community. Chanukah or Hanukkah celebrates Jewish rededication of their temple in Jerusalem during the second century. Chanukah or Hanukkah as I came to learn means dedication in Hebrew and it commemorates a miracle which is oil based. The festival ran for eight consecutive days and each of the days was marked with games, dances, songs, oily fried foods, candle lighting and a lot of joy and laughter. Each day of Hanukkah we thanked God by reciting a complete ‘Hallel’ during the Morning Prayer service. We also inserted a special thanks giving prayer and read from the Torah. After each Morning Prayer service we ate oily fried foods such as fried potato pancakes also known as latkes, deep fried doughnuts also known as sufganiyot, cheese and a lot of dairy foods. We also got to play dreidel games. From the brief history given I came to learn that during the ancient days, the Greek oppressors banned Torah schools and so the young children would study deep in the forest. All this while, they would post sentry to make them aware of Greek patrols. When the soldiers came, the kids would hide or bury their texts into......
