It can be hard enough to tackle your own spending habits and pay, much less discuss them with another person. But whether it’s planning for the future with your significant other or managing expectations with friends who like to spend more than you, there are several important conversations you need to be prepared for.Of course, money talk is also important outside your personal relationships. People are often reluctant to talk about compensation in the workplace — and it’s even tougher for women, who research shows get penalized for negotiating salaries. But you need to know how to discuss compensation, whether you’re interviewing for a new job or about to have a year-end review.It’s crucial to have a conversation about money with the following people:Your Spouse Or PartnerIf you’re sharing a life with someone, you’re likely sharing expenses, too.

Ronald Koeman expects Jordy Clasie to demonstrate his ability to replace Morgan Schneiderlin when he returns to Southampton’s first team against Leicester on Saturday. He is also optimistic that the most promising of his summer signings will add qualities to his team that they have otherwise been missing, and at a time when the club’s prospects are again looking strong. “Jordy has some qualities compared to Schneiderlin,” said Koeman, who earlier on Thursday reiterated his desire to remain Southampton’s manager regardless of if he is offered the Holland job. “In our ball possession, and also to know and to do when we need to press, because he’s very fast in short spaces. “His first pass is always forwards, it’s never back; he’s trying to pass forwards and between the lines, (encouraging) good movements of the players. We need that, and can do that better in our football. “(Clasie) knows that he has to bring his level, and that it’s a tough competition – it’s not a Dutch league – and we have to bring more (to support him) because he’s not the most physical player. “That means that other qualities you have to improve, on this level, on this intensity of the game, but he needs time for that after his injury.” Press Association Since a brief Europa League appearance in which he suffered a hamstring injury, the midfielder has remained unavailable for Southampton since arriving for £10.5million from Feyenoord during the summer transfer window, when the £25million Schneiderlin joined Manchester United. After revealing that Shane Long will be unavailable for the next two-to-four weeks having injured his ankle ligaments while on international duty with the Republic of Ireland, Koeman said that he expects Clasie to return in the Premier League on Saturday.

Fernando Torres’ 40th-minute goal gave Chelsea the lead in the Community Shield encounter at Villa Park – but they were then reduced to 10 men when Branislav Ivanovic was sent off.Torres got his season off to an encouraging start by coolly firing home after collecting Ramires’ pass.Two minutes later, defender Ivanovic was red-carded by referee Kevin Friend for a reckless challenge on Aleksandar Kolarov.Manchester City looked the more dangerous side before Torres’ opener, with Chelsea keeper Petr Cech saving Carlos Tevez’s early free-kick and denying Samir Nasri at close range.Cech was also able to gather Vincent Kompany’s header from James Milner’s right-wing corner before City striker Sergio Aguero sent an effort wide of the target.The Blues did then start to threaten, with Frank Lampard shooting straight at keeper Costel Pantilimon, who also kept out Eden Hazard’s 25-yarder but was unable to prevent Torres putting the European champions ahead.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

Editor’s note: Geocaching HQ staff are joining geocachers at Mega-Events around the world to celebrate and share the adventure of geocaching. Derek Hamilton, a.k.a. ScatterMyCaches, attended Mid-West GeoBash (GC3T8EH) in Wauseon, OH, USA in July. Derek has been with Geocaching HQ as the Copywriter since 2012. This is Derek’s account of his trip.Me (left) with Irene from team geocite.This past week I had to opportunity to attend one of the largest geocaching Mega-Events in the mid-west United States—Mid-West GeoBash. All in all, I had an amazing time, got to meet tons of great geocachers, found several geocaches and left needing a few day’s worth of sleep. Here’s a short recap of my trip:The trip began with a 4 a.m. ride to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. From there, I made the journey to Detroit, Michigan, where I picked up my rental car and drove to Wauseon, Ohio. After checking in to my hotel and grabbing some dinner, I ventured out to the Fulton County Fairgrounds where “Area 51” was already in full swing. For those of you not familiar with Area 51, this is one of the most popular parts of Mid-West GeoBash. Each night at 10 p.m., the bonfire area is closed off to people under the age of 21, coolers are wheeled out and adult beverages are enjoyed. I wasn’t quite ready for what this entailed. Let’s just say that since I was the only Geocaching HQ employee at the event, attendees were very generous.The 9/11 memorial. Photo by geocacher Rross1973Friday was my day of geocaching. I drove around the town of Wauseon, picking up geocaches and even attending a second event, Caching in Corsets. Despite the name of the event, I did not do my Dr. Frankenfurter impression and squeeze into a corset (which was probably better for everyone). One of the geocaches I found was Fulton County’s 9/11 Memorial multi-cache. This began at a memorial that featured a piece of the Twin Towers. The path to the final stage took me past a very patriotic wooden sculpture. In my log, I recounted where I was and what I was doing on that fateful day in 2001. Later that night, I again visited Area 51, where, again, the bonfires raged and everyone was very generous.Saturday was when the geocaching community, volunteer reviewers who attended, and I got down to business. We held a Geocaching HQ/Reviewer panel to answer questions and discuss topics from geocachers who attended the event. The questions and discussion was awesome and I brought back quite a few suggestions for the team at Geocaching HQ. After the Q&A session, I roamed the event taking photos and handing out Geocaching swag. Later, we took the event photo and officially wrapped up the event. Of course, I had to attend the final night of Area 51. However, I had to cut my time short in order to be able to wake up and make my 8:30 a.m. flight out of Detroit.This was my first Mega-Event and I had a blast. A huge shout-out to Pete and Sonja for putting on such an amazing event! And thanks to everyone else that I met, those that I hung out with, and everyone who attended. If you’re able to make it to the 2014 Mid-West GeoBash, I would highly recommend it.Bonus: There was even a 30-minute TV segment filmed about the bash.
