How to catch a cheating partner
How to catch a cheating partner
At some point in your life you are bound to feel a little insecure about your relationship. It’s human instinct to have a feeling of jealousy if your partner sees anyone else for coffee or a meeting. The fear of infidelity is not shocking, though you may feel worried about nothing. If you observe some serious changes in his behavior, it might be a warning that he is getting close with someone else. Here are some tips to find out if your partner is cheating on you:

1. His text history is always clean

You must know a lot of things about your partner. If suddenly he has started deleting his text history and doesn’t give much attention to what you have to say when he’s texting, it’s a sign that he is spending too much time texting another woman. It won’t be a threat as long he doesn’t feel like hiding it. But if he is deleting his texts, it means that he feels guilty, so you need to keep an eye out for an outsider who might want to steal him away.

2. Your partner attends his calls in private

When two people live together, there is nothing to hide. If recently your partner has felt the need of attending to his phone alerts privately and makes his calls only when you leave the room, it might be because of a secret relation flaring up between him and some woman he has started seeing. If he shuts his phone and ends the call whenever you catch him in the middle of it, you need to be on alert.

3. He maintains secret social media accounts

If your partner has a social media account or an email address that he has recently started using a lot and hides his internet activity from you, it might be due to the fact that he has started long chats with a new woman he met. There is no other apparent reason to keep a hidden account and use it without letting your partner know. If you find some proof of such activity, your partner might be cheating on you.

4. He is concerned more about his appearance

If your partner is spending less time with you and more time on trying to look his best, this sudden interest in his physical appearance might be an alarming sign for you. If he is going out with the new woman, he’d want to impress her by dressing well. So if he has started grooming himself without any reason, watch out for yourself.

5. He has picked up a different scent

The above signs can help you decide if your beloved is loyal to you or not. Though these are not conclusive, but these will sure help you out in deciding for yourself.

It is tough to manage your kid’s taste buds while not compromising on the nutrient value of the food. This challenge has become tougher these days due to availability of junk food choices to your kids. However, a little innovation in healthy food items cannot only make them tastier but also healthy for your kids. Here are some food items that are not only healthy but your kids will love them.

Kids love cheese

If you ask kids what do they like the most, 7 out of 10 will say they love cheese. Cheese is also good for kids as it gives them the energy required to do their daily activities. Cheese also has the much-required protein for kids. Use cheese to make innovative dishes like home baked pizza, cheese crackers and healthy sandwich with a slice of mozzarella cheese.

Be innovative with milk

Milk is a very important part of a growing kid. However, if your kids detest milk then you need to be a little innovative with that. Kids generally do not like milk because of its smell. Make the milk more consumable by adding flavor to it. Make a chocolate shake by adding dark chocolate syrup to it. Also, you can make a banana milk shake or milk based smoothie to make milk tastier for your kid. Alternatively, make a chocolate pancake using coca powder, milk and eggs as a healthy snack item.

Fruits are the way

Fruits are very important for your kid and arguably the most ignored item. Make a fruit smoothie with blueberries, bananas, kale and pineapple. Bananas are high in vitamin B6 and pineapple is rich in vitamin C. Kids love the variety in color. Some studies have suggested that kids get tempted to eat a colorful food easily as compared to a dull but may be tasty food. Fruits give a good color variety. Use different fruits not only to add nutrition but also to add color to the snack.


Homemade “junk food”

Kids love junk food outside. Therefore, you need to find an alternative for burgers, pizza and other unhealthy items. Make home made snack items like chicken kebabs with colorful sauces. Presentation is the key in food. Chicken is high in protein and kids love it. A chicken stick is your perfect answer to KFC and the likes. Make interesting sauces using peanut and ketchup. Kids would love peanut sauce with it.

Eggs are important for breakfast

Eggs contain protein and energy required for your kids. Use innovative techniques to make different variety of dishes using eggs. Chocolate pancake that uses eggs is a good way to answer to your kid’s taste buds without compromising on their health. Make an egg and cut it into heart shape or any other innovative shape using a cutter to make the breakfast interesting.

Kids love color and presentation more than we adults do. Therefore, make sure that you keep your kids interested in home based healthy foods by adding color and shape to the regular foods. This will not only make the food healthy but more appealing to the kids.

Deciding Between Debt And Equity

If you have a large investment portfolio you need to make your decisions strategically before diving it into various asset categories. Two major asset categories that you would need to play with to optimize returns on your investment portfolio are debt and equity.
Debt instrument may include fixed deposits, fixed income funds, debt funds, corporate bonds etc. Equity instruments generally include direct equity investments, equity mutual funds and private equity investments.

The question is how to decide between equity and debt in your investment portfolio?

Understanding Equities is important

Equities are high risk and high reward investment instruments. Equity markets go through several ups and downs and can be unpredictable in the short term. However, studies have shows that historically equities are known to offer an average return of ten to twelve percent in the longer term. Longer term may be a five-year term when all business cycles have played out and balanced each other. In most economies long term equity instruments do not attract tax liabilities whereas the short terms do.

Understanding Debt is important

Debt as an asset class is low risk and low reward. It offers a fixed return on your instrument that is generally compounded quarterly or bi-annually. Debt as an asset class does not have any tax advantages. Hence, it is important to calculate the net returns after tax. These returns are rarely able to beat inflation rate. Hence money lying in debt may be safe but loses its value over time. However, it is still better than idle cash in your account.

Understand your risk and investment profile

How to design your portfolio depends on your risk and investment profile. Several factors may be taken into account while understating it. For example, your basic temperament plays a key role in understating your risk profile. You may be an aggressive, balanced or a conservative investor based on your temperament.

An aggressive investor is one who wants to make most of every opportunity that he or she sees in the market. These investors are ok with their portfolios turning negative in the short term. They have a larger appetite for risk. Their market outlook is mostly positive and their return expectation is very high. They are likely to maintain about 70 percent of their investment portfolio towards equity and remaining towards debt and cash. Their cash component of portfolio is generally very minimal. They like to keep their last penny invested in the markets.

Conservative investors on the other hand are passive investors who like to play with the market averages. They like to play on low risk and are okay with lower profits. They like to maintain at least six months of their living expenses as cash and play with the rest amount in the equity and debt markets.

Take a calculated risk

Apart from temperament towards risk and rewards your age also plays an important role in deciding your allocation of funds between debt and equity. It is generally said the younger you are, the more risk you can afford to take as you have a long lifetime ahead to balance it out. Also your needs are also more when you are younger. A thumb rule to calculate the equity allocation is
100 minus your age. Therefore, if you are 25 years old, your allocation towards equity should be 75 percent.

While you may choose to make your investment decisions on your own, at times it is a good idea to fire a financial expert. If you do not wish to spend extra money on the services of a financial expert, you may also invest into balanced funds that take care of rebalancing the portfolio basis on your investment risk profile and market changes.

Sometimes not all we hear turns out the way we interpret it. If you something good, it doesn’t automatically mean that it’s truly something good. Never indulge or take a risk based on something you cannot prove it really works until you can prove it for sure.
When it comes to money or business matters, you cannot gamble or get caught immediately consenting based on others who just want to pursue what you can give them in return. The risk is too great and maybe in the end you’ll be losing more than you invested.
