The interesting difference between Sipi and Murchison Falls, in my opinion, is that of the two, Sipi is more accurately named. The thing about Murchison Falls is that the water there just doesn't fall. It fights, froths, and foams its way through the rocks.
At Sipi, however, the water really does fall. The flow never touches the cliff at all, but simply drops, in a lacy, diaphanous veil, to crash into the pool at bottom, creating a constant fine mist in the process. It's a beautiful, elegant ballerina, stretching top to toe a slender 100 meters; Murchison by comparison is a stocy, meaty beast, more awe-inspiring than mesmerizing.
Walking out of a popular night club in Kampala, my friends and I could not help but notice a young lady on top of a car, clearly drunk, dancing away with a beer bottle in her hand. She was having the time of her life shouting and screaming without a care in the world as a group of girls cheered her on.
As we headed to our next destination we wondered, could we Ugandan women be turning into wild party animals? But we were just out having a few drinks, nothing wild. It is all just a bit of fun, going out and having a good time but what happens when the fun gets out of hand?
Over the years we have heard numerous stories about Hollywood party girls like Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Baines, Paris Hilton and Pamela Anderson constantly checking in and out of rehab as a result of their extremely wild party lifestyles. The stars of Hollywood are a world apart from us, but are our very own Ugandan women on this destructive trail?

Ensuring employee satisfaction is one of the most important things that you can do to build a stronger and more productive company as a business owner.
Employee job satisfaction can be achieved in many ways. Managers can closely work with employees in order to develop better work processes, employees can be given a more significant say in how their job is done and managers can ensure that employees feel challenged at their job.
Understanding the positive impact of job satisfaction on employee retention will help to justify the time and expense involved with creating a satisfying workplace.
Here under are some of the elements that employees are looking for in a job.
A positive workplace
People want to wake up in the morning and head to a place with functioning teams,supportive bosses, well-defined projects, access to vital information concerning the company and synergy between various levels of the organisation.
They expect a conducive working space such as good lighting, ventilation and furniture. Employees perform at their best in an environment of trust, open communication channels and effective conflict-resolution strategies.
In short, employees stay longer and perform better at a job that offers them a positive work environment.
One of the primary reasons employees give for leaving their jobs has to do with the company’s leadership and not money. Ineffective leadership can destroy job satisfaction, lead to unnecessary turnover and, in turn, impose enormous costs in recruiting new employees.
Employers can improve employee job satisfaction through training supervisors and managers how to be leaders not just training them on management skills.
Increasing job satisfaction among your employee base is not only the right thing to do, but it positions your organisation to reap remarkable benefits
Career, personal growth
These including opportunities to develop leadership skills are indispensable in maintaining a low attrition rate and high productivity. Sponsoring academic programmes will ensure the continued education of a workforce and a prerequisite for innovation and creative problem solving.
Employees value a job that offers them avenues to improve upon their hard and soft skills. People thrive in a dynamic environment that is both challenging and nurturing.
Fair pay for work done
Employees expect to be adequately compensated for their contribution to the company. While compensation may not be a primary cause for job dissatisfaction, employers would do well to review their compensation structure to ensure they are paying competitive wages and that there exists internal equity among employees in comparable jobs.
You can increase job satisfaction through developing a compensation and benefits structure that corresponds to other businesses in your industry, and one that rewards employees for their contributions to organisational success.

Things You'll Need
3 to 5 lbs chicken, any cuts of the bird you choose
• 2 cups diced tomatoes (can be canned)
• 4 green onions
• 2 cups thinly sliced onions (about one medium onion)
• 1/4 lemon juice
• 1/2 cup ketchup
• 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
• 3 tbsp. curry powder
• 3 tbsp. cumin, ground
• 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
• 2 tbsp. onion powder
• 2 tbsp. garlic powder
• 1/2 cup olive oil
• 4 tbsp. brown sugar, honey or agave nectar
• Salt and pepper
• rice, noodles, or potatoes for serving
1.Stir together the lemon juice, green onions, tomatoes, ketchup, vinegar, herbs, and spices, except for the salt and pepper. Pour this marinade over the chicken and let it sit in the refrigerator for at least eight hours.
2.Add olive oil and brown sugar (or honey) to a heavy pot and stir until dissolved, over medium heat. Take the chicken out of the marinade and brown it in the oil for three to four minutes on all sides. Reduce heat, and place the chicken in the pot if it isn't in there already, and pour the marinade over everything. (You can also place everything into a slow cooker.) Because you're cooking the marinade thoroughly, don't worry about stewing the chicken in this mixture.
3.Cook for 90 minutes on low if on the stove or four hours on low if in a slow cooker.
4.Serve over potatoes (mashed or whole), rice, or noodles, and be sure to use the sauce liberally.

How do you practically speak the love language of someone you love ?
Buy a pack of sticky notes. Leave at least one encouraging note a day where your loved one will notice. Comment on something you appreciate about them, something they did, or in relation to who they are. The more specific the message the better. (Relationship: Marriage, Family)
Next time you notice your loved one doing a particular chore or task, simply ask them what can you do to help. Even if they say no or not right now, the offer alone will mean the world. (Relationship: Marriage, Family, Friend)
Think of the most meaningful songs shared between you and your loved one. Search for the music videos of these songs and then add them to a public playlist you create on your YouTube account. Send and email or card containing the link inviting them to watch. Let them know you were thinking about them. The thoughtfulness—not dollar amount—will make this gift super special. (Relationship: Marriage, Couple)
Is there a local art museum in your city or town? If so, plan a visit with your loved one. Ask questions about how they feel and what they notice about the various works of art. Let their answers guide your conversation. (Relationship: Marriage, Couple, Family, Parent to Child)
Let your child know that you notice they are growing up. Ask them to measure their hands against yours—palms to palms—to see if they are catching up with you yet. (Relationship: Parent to Child)
Is Separation the End ?
Thousands of people experience marital separation every year. Many of them sincerely
want to know, "What should I do?" Here are some thoughts to guide you, or those
you love, through this process:
Don't assume that separation equals divorce. Separation just means that a marriage
is in desperate straits. Separation is not permanent and has the potential to even
lead to a restored, enriched, growing marriage. What you do in the weeks following
your separation will determine the quality of your life for years to come. Separation
is not the time to capitulate. Healing will require listening, understanding, discipline,
change. But hard work can result in the joy of a restored marriage.
I realize some may respond: "It sounds good, but it won't work. We've tried before.
Besides, I don't think my spouse will even try again. I'm not even sure I want to
try." I understand your feelings, but don't assume that the hostile attitude of
your spouse will last forever, or that your own feelings are permanent.
A gift to all of us is the gift of choice. We can change.
Your spouse may be saying: "I'm through. It is finished. I don't want to talk about
it." But three weeks or three months from now your spouse may be willing to talk.
Much depends on what you do in the meantime, and much depends on your spouse's
response to the Inner Spirit. You relax. You work.
But You should leave the results to your inner person.
Are you fed up with juggling the same job every day? Do you dread going to work? Have you lost motivation for the job you previously did with passion? The fact is that there is nothing wrong with you, but with you. What you need is a career change.
George Apiro, the head of guidance and counseling at the Ministry of Education, however, says career change requires a number of strategies and decisions to take. "Career change doesn't enable you to utilize your potential to another where you can utilize it fully," he says. "This career should be able to respond to your inner most attitude, interest and social inclinations."
Moving from one career to another is not a one-night decision. You need to carry out a lot of research in the new area you want to tread, and looking at who you are to re-discover yourself and interests. It involves looking at what you generally like and do not like, experts say.
