Social etworking- Playing It Safe By Christie Acevedo Social Networking has now become a major pastime for many people including both adults and teenagers. According to Facebook, just one social Networking website, there are currently over 500 million active facebook users, about 70% of those users being outside of the United States. About 50% of these users log in each and every day and they claim 700 billion minutes are spent on Facebook each month! Most users have about 130 contacts on Facebook, also known as Facebook friends. Why is this important to know? Social Networking could be a great tool to promote your business, keep in contact with friends or family, keep contacts all in one place, to send invites out to large groups or even to play some great online games. Many teens and even preteens are also using Social Networking as a place to keep in touch with their friend. Many of these social networking websites will import your contacts from your email, will search places of current or past employment or search for people in your graduating High School or College class. This could be great to help people with busy lives in order to keep them in contact with many friends at once.

A Guide to Safe Social Networking

Although social networking could be a fun pastime, it could also pose a danger to some that say just a little too much. For instance, it is probably not the best idea to mention that you will be leaving on vacation for the week because you just told your entire friend list that your home will be unattended. You may say, “But those are my friends, it should be safe”. If you would not hand them the keys to your home, it is probably better not to mention your vacation You can

always post all those great vacation pictures and brag about everything when you get home. Also, if there is any chance you will be searching for employment anytime in the future be very careful of the pictures you post and the things you say. A future employer may not hire you because you posted about you getting drunk at a party and making a fool of yourself or if they see photos of you in revealing clothing posted for all to see. Many employers do

search your name to get information about who they may be hiring and how they will represent their company. Always make sure to adjust your settings to what you are comfortable with. Most of these social networknig websites will show your email address, your phone number and address to your entire friend list and some even will have that information visible to anyone searching your name. It is probably not a good idea to have that information

Community College (CCC) system. There are 72 districts and 112 colleges, 69 of which are in Southern California. These colleges offer unique options for the right students. They are cheaper, accessible, and flexible. Enrolling into a CCC is comparatively simple. Basic requirements are that applicants possess a high school diploma or equivalent and be at least 18 years old. High school grades do not determine eligibility, but they are used for course placement. Low grades may mean taking remedial classes before moving into college level courses. There are no application fee, letter of recommendation, personal essay, or extracurricular activities requirements. This process is especially comfortable for those who wish to ease into college life

rather than diving in wholeheartedly. Another serious consideration for college is the cost. Again, the CCC system offers relief. Current tuition is $26.00/unit plus books, materials, health services, parking, and student government fees. Comparing these expenses with other California college systems, it is evident that starting college at this level saves a considerable amount of money. If the student is in a degree program, it is economical to take lower division classes at a CCC and then transferring to a four­year university where everything costs considerably more. Even with low tuition, there’s financial help if needed. Depending on the student and family’s financial status, it may

be possible to receive a waiver of some fees. Beyond that, there are loans, grants, and scholarships to help defray the costs. The financial aid office provides assistance in finding help. Also, the Internet provides lucrative websites where a student may search for other means of support. Books and materials are expensive, but there are ways to save there as well. As the name suggests, these colleges are local and students save on transportation and housing expenses. Because applying for financial aid is free, students should file the application even if they think they don’t qualify. Don’t miss out on an opportunity. Finally, community colleges offer goal flexibility. Students decide if they want to enter a degree or certificate program.

available if you have children because this may cause a risk to them. As far as photos, it is probably a good idea to at least hide photos and personal information for anyone not on your friends list. You do not want to make yourself impossible for friends to find but you do want to keep yourself and your family safe so adjust your settings accordingly. Children using the internet could be risky all around and social networking can build a bridge for predators to get in contact with your child. Your child could also say something that could affect their social life or other aspects of their future. If your child is online at all, make sure it is in a open area where you or another adult can keep an eye on what he/she is doing. It is also recommended that you know the child's log in information so you could check if you have any suspicions. As parents it is not an intrusion of privacy, if what we are doing is being done to keep our child safe it is the right thing to do. With social networking becoming so popular we all need to be wise about what we share and how it could effect us. So be safe, keep your children safe and have fun.

Affordable College Choices Community College Alternatives For Your Child

By Josephine Williams Another school year – another chance for opportunities and they are boundless! It’s time for middle schoolers to begin channeling their focus as they prepare for their futures. High school students are nearing a crossroad – graduation – and important decisions must be made to insure they are ready to follow their dreams. What to do after graduation? Undoubtedly, higher education is the definitive answer. With competition in the work force so keen, job seekers need every advantage to overcome the competition.

The certificate program allows the student to finish his course work in a short period of time and then enter the work force. Those who wish to transfer to a four­year university earn an associate degree from the community college and then a bachelor’s degree from the university. It is extremely important for transfer students to know the requirements for the university of choice early on. Don’t waste money and time on classes that aren’t transferable. This article has offered very basic information about the CCC system. If this option seems right, be sure to investigate further. Visit the college websites and the campuses themselves.

Organizational Culture and Its Importance

By Linda Devis The contemporary definition of Organizational Culture includes what is valued; the leadership style, the language and symbols, the procedures and routines, and the definitions of success that characterizes an organization. It is a specific collection of values and norms that are shared by people and groups in an organization and that control the way they interact with each other and with stakeholders outside the organization. Here, organizational values are beliefs and ideas, about, what kinds of goals members of an organization should pursue and the appropriate kinds or standards of behavior organizational members should use to achieve these goals. From organizational values develops organizational norms, guidelines or expectations that prescribe appropriate kinds of behavior by employees in particular situations and control the behavior of organizational members towards one another. In the past 25 years, the concept of organizational culture has gained

wide acceptance as a way to understand human systems. From an open system perspective, each aspect of organizational culture can be seen as an important environmental condition affecting the system and its subsystem. Increased competition, globalization, mergers, acquisitions, alliances, and various workforce departments have created a greater need for organizational culture. Thus, it has become an important pattern for the organization's development. Below are important key ingredients of Organizational Culture: It focuses attention on the human side of organizational life, and finds significance and learning in even its most ordinary aspects. It clarifies the importance of creating appropriate systems of shared meaning to help people work together toward desired outcomes. It requires members especially leaders, to acknowledge the impact of their behavior on the organization's culture. It encourages the view that the

perceived relationship between an organization and its environment is also affected by the organization's basic assumptions.

Mobile Email Without A Smartphone

By Gary Martin People are more and more reliant on email these days. Depending on who you are and what your occupation is, you may rely on email communication more than others. Usually, people who need to communicate this way have purchased some form of Smartphone or messaging device. These devices have become increasingly harder to operate and more expensive than conventional handsets. I would like to recommend the

use of a new messaging device called “PEEK”. This attractive blackberry style device is very user friendly and for the price can not be beat. If you are looking for an affordable way to communicate via email look no further. The Peek email device comes in two flavors­ Peek Classic with this model you can have up to 2 email accounts at a time, View Pictures and 2­5 minute email delivery time. The Peek Classic cost $19.99 and for service will be $19.99 monthly.

The other model is the Peek Pronto this is their top of the line model with 5 email accounts ability to View .DOC,.PDF,.JPG and GIF files, PUSH email delivery (Real­ Time Email). The Peek Pronto cost $59.99 and $19.99 per month for service. If you would like to obtain one of these devices you can check with your local Radio Shack or Blockbuster. If you still can not locate a device you can always order one at

RAISING PRACTICALLY PERFECT KIDS WITH ADD & ADHD Corona, CA Pediatrician and Davis® Facilitator Dr. Angela Gonzales of Riverside is teaming up with psychotherapist Stacy Dorsey of Corona to conduct a seminar/workshop for parents and educators of kids with ADD and ADHD. Children with ADD or ADHD tend to have one or more of the following symptoms: lose focus, bounce or have random movements, have a brilliant

mind, poor grades, seem to be on a different page, have discipline issues, have troubles communicating, people who live around them feel like they live in chaos As the mother of a dyslexic herself, Dr. Angie will give attendees an understanding of the ADD/ADHD thinking style and explain why it is a gift and an obstacle. She will also outline the components of the Davis®

Program and why it has been so successful as a non­ pharmaceutical approach to empower these gifted, out­of­ the­box thinkers. Stacy Dorsey’s humorous, workshop­style approach teaches attendees how to parent these unique thinkers without projecting and how to discipline without defeating. Attendees will also be given tools on how to turn their household or

Large Pores Treatment By Peter Hutch Large pores are simply a genetic problem. Large pores are often an indication of oily skin. Large pores (sometimes referred to as enlarged pores) are likewise more common in the T­zone and occur most often on those with oily skin. Though not always, large pores and blackheads tend to go hand in hand. Blackheads and large pores usually come together. This is because the pores are larger, so oil and dead skin sits inside of them. This becomes a blackhead and stretches the pore even larger. If enlarged pores are due to blackheads stretching the entrance of the pore, then firstly remove blackheads using one of the above methods, then to contract pores, blend (one or your preferred mixture) of camphor, sage and / or thyme in a base of jojoba oil. Use as a compress or mix in with your moisturiser and apply to affected areas. Jojoba is easily absorbed into the skin and balances oil levels (which may assist in reducing blackheads as sebum production is regulated). Oatmeal and gram flour are good toning substance. You can add a

little lemon juice, rose water and curd to them and apply on the skin. Wash this pack off when it dries. It tones the pores and enhances the complexion. Honey is equally good to tone up the pores and reduce the oiliness from the skin. It can be applied in any of the facemask or can be directly applied on the skin with a little lemon juice and sugar to it. You can massage it on face and leave it for few minutes. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Honey added to milk powder too helps if applied on the skin. A paste made of salt and butter is helpful in reducing pore size if applied on them. Add tomato juice to calamine powder or sandalwood powder, as they help in reducing the size of the pores and even tone up the skin well. These packs help skin to reduce the sebum production and thus help in reducing the size of the pores. Boire strips help with blackhead removal, so if you have blackheads, use them. They are effective. Also, scrub your face regularly to prevent your pores from getting clogged. Make sure you use a scrub that suits you, because certain scrubs can cause a rash.

This seminar/workshop will be held Saturday, October 16, 2010 from 8:00 a.m. to noon at the Eagle Glen Golf Course, 1800 Eagle Glen Parkway, Corona, CA 92883.

Egg skin is a pore­shrinker that also helps bring skin eruptions to a head. Break an egg, reserve its contents for other use, and then carefully remove the membrane from the inside of the shell. Smooth this egg skin over the enlarged pores; let dry before peeling off. Sunburn is better prevented than treated. Effective sunscreens are available in a wide variety of strengths. Most doctors recommend a sunscreen SPF level of 30 or greater. Large pores are simply a genetic problem, but you can temporarily reduce large pores by clearing away dirt and debris. Large pores are often an indication of oily skin. Use one after the other for cleansing and exfoliating the skin. Mix 2 egg whites with a few drops of lemon juice. Apply on face and leave on for 5­7 minutes, then rinse with hands. As egg whites dry, they lighten the skin and pull debris out of pores. Mix almond meal with enough water to make a paste. Apply to pores for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water, and then apply witch hazel or a solution of apple cider vinegar and water.

Glaucoma can cause great damage to eyes

By Contributor Glaucoma is one of the most serious eye problems among many people, which will cause damage to optic nerve. And the damage can be permanent if the problem is not treated properly and timely­ blindness is the ultimate result. People with glaucoma will find that there is great pressure in their eyes, but this symptom progresses slowly and can not be detected easily at early stage. And the problem becomes very serious when it is detected. Though glaucoma may attack any people, people in particular groups run much higher risk. For example, those with ocular pressure, physical problems, like diabetes, and in special race, like Africans, all are more vulnerable to this problem. Or this problem can also be inherited. In other cases, some people with high blood pressure also run very high risk to get this problem. Luckily, this problem can also be detected by regular eye check. The eye doctors will do a series of exams on eye shapes and sizes, intraocular pressure

or even the condition of optic nerve, etc. After that, the eye doctors will also consider many other aspects, like the medial history, family history, sex, etc. If there is really some symptom of glaucoma, certain special eye drops will be used to slow down its progression. On the whole, eye surgery is the only way to treat glaucoma perfectly. The surgery aims at releasing the pressure in the eyes. And patients can choose to receive a laser or non­laser procedure. During the surgery, a hole will be made and some extra tissues and liquid will be drain out. If the case is serious, some implant surgeries are feasible. Anyway, the surgery is just used to lower the pressure in the eyes. According to the development of this problem, glaucoma can be fallen into several stages. All these stages are developed from one to another as time goes on, and the symptoms become worsening on and on. All in all, this problem will attack any people without any obvious symptoms until it gets worsened.

By John Lexon If you have ever wanted to cover wrinkles with makeup then you are going to find this article very useful.Why?Because in this article I am going to share with you why covering wrinkles with make up is bad for your skin. And I am also going to reveal a much better alternative to covering wrinkles.What's this alternative?Instead of covering your wrinkles, it's a better idea to use natural treatments that can help fade your wrinkles.Here's why you should not cover your wrinkles with makeup...1. Makeup can clog your skin pores if not washed off2. Some makeup causes premature aging A better alternative is to just make them disappear all together!How?You can do it safely by using natural ant aging skin care products

that contain ingredients like Cynergy tk and Natural vitamin E.These ingredients boost the regrowth of the collagen and elastin proteins in your skin.Collagen is responsible for keeping your skin firm; and elastin will help keep your skin elastic.An increase in both proteins in your skin will help fade facial lines and any other wrinkles on your skin. This is because wrinkles are caused when skin becomes loose and with an increase in both collagen and elastin ; your skin becomes stronger and firmer and eventually wrinkles disappear.It might too good to be true but it works like a charm. The answer to younger looking skin at any age lies in both collagen and elastin.That's a proven fact!

The Beauty of Olive Oil A Natural Remedy For Softer Skin

By Staff Writer It is amazing how many people run to the drug store, department store make­up counter or local convenience store because they are out of their favorite beauty product. People are easily influenced by advertisements showing youthful, beautiful and often very air brushed photos of flawless looking women. It's no wonder why so many people are willing to spend so much of their hard earned money and put unknown chemicals on their bodies without even taking a glance to see what the contents are. Americans spend over 7 billion dollars per year on beauty products when the same or better results can often times be found in non­chemical natural ingredients.

Your Never Too Young To Go After Your Dream As one of the staff writers of Yes We Can Newspaper, I have never met this young man, but his grandmother was telling me about his musical ability and what he has accomplished by wanting to make music for the rest of his life. She has also told me about time and effort he has put into music. Below is the article he wrote about how he got started. I want other young people to look inside of themselves and see what it is they would love to do. When you find that passion or talent then

step out and work towards accomplishing it. I want our young people to know that no matter what they want in life the power to achieve it lies within them. Here is the story of a 14 year old young man who has the desire and determination to work toward his choice of career in the music industry. By Anthony Nance My name is Anthony Nance, I am 14 years old and my stage name is Crytical. I live in Pomona, California and music has been a part of my life forever.

Just about 2 years ago, I decided that music was what I wanted to do for a living. My partner, Kadeem Nance, whose stage name is Vicious, is 18 years old. We formed our group February 27, 2010. We rap, as well as doing some Hip Hop and R&B. Music has been an outlet; a way to express how I am feeling. When I was troubled I started writing poems so I would not take my anger out on people. At first it was not that great but after lots of practice it started to flow. I remember when I began

to desire making music for the rest of my life, it was around the time I was promoted from the 8th grade to the 9th grade. My cousin and I were sitting in the kitchen and my mom had ordered some pizza. We were talking and I brought up that I wanted to do music so we talked it over that night, talking about all the things we wanted to do. We started our group that night, we started by making music with my mp3 player. We would get a beat clicking and then write the words to the beat. I also have a

friend named Chris, who allows us to go to his house and record our music with his equipment. I have been recording music ever since. I would like to encourage other young people my age to think of what you would like to do then start planning and working toward it now. You’re never to young.

The Word A Love Letter From Your Father By Pastor Diann White My child, you may not know me, but I know everything about you. I know when you sit down and when you rise. I am familiar with all of your ways; even the hairs on your head are numbered. For you were made in my image. In me, you live and move and have your being. For you are my offspring, I knew you even before you were conceived. I chose you when I planted creation. You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in my book. I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. I knit you together your mothers womb and

brought your fourth on the day you were born. I am not distant and angry, but I am the complete expression of love. I have been misrepresented by those who do not know me. It is my desire to lavish on you, simple because you are my child and I am your father. I offer you more than an earthly father ever could; for I am the perfect father and every good gift you receive comes from my hands. I am your provider and meet your needs. My plan for your future has always been filled with hope because I love you with everlasting love. My thoughts towards you are countless, as the sand on the seashore, and I

rejoice over you with more singing. I will never stop doing good for you; for you are my treasured possession. I desire to establish you with all of my heart and soul, and I want to show you great and marvelous things. If you seek me with all of your heart, you will find me. Delight in me and I will give you the desires

of your heart. For it is I, who gave you those desires. I am able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine. I am your greatest encouragement. I am also the father who comforts all of your troubles. When you are brokenhearted, I am close to you. As a shepherd carries a lamb, I have carried you close by my heart. One day I will wipe way every tear from your eyes. I will take away all of the pain you have suffered on this earth. I am your father and I love you. Even as I love my son Jesus, for in Jesus, my love for you is revealed. He is the exact representation of my being. He came to demonstrate that I am for you and not against

you; and to tell you that I am not counting your sins. Jesus died so you could be reconciled. His death was the ultimate expression of my love for you. I gave up everything that I love so that I may gain your love. If you receive the gift of my son, Jesus, you receive me, and nothing will separate you from my love again. Come home and I will throw the biggest party heaven has ever seen. I have always been father, and I will always be father. MY QUESTION IS.....will you be my child? I am waiting for you

and regret filled his heart. He began to search through his father’s important papers and saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he oped the Bible and began to turn the pages. His father had carefully underlined a verse, Matt 7:11. “And if ye, being evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Heavenly Father which is in heaven, give to those who ask Him?” As he read those words, a car key dropped from

the back of the Bible. It had a tag with the dealer’s name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words....PAID IN FULL . How many times do we miss God’s blessings because they are not packaged as we expect. I hope each of you have a blessed day and be thankful for what you have. This story was shared by Pastor Tyler.

Love, Your father, Almighty God

Be Thankful For What You Have By Pastor William E. Tyler A young man was getting ready to graduate from college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer’s showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted. As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his graduation, his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud he was to

have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box. Curious, but somewhat disappointed, the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather­bound Bible, with the young man’s name embossed in gold. Angrily, he raised his voice to his father and said, “With all your money you give me a Bible, and stormed out of the house, leaving the Bible. Many years passes and the young man was very successful in

business. He had a beautiful home and a wonderful family, but realized his father was very old and thought perhaps he should go to him. He had not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed to come home immediately and take care of things. When he arrived at his father’s house, sudden sadness

GOD's Gift To Man- "The Mind" By Pastor Edward McNair In the bible there is a book called revelation, it is the last book in the bible and in this book there is a sentence that I find quite interesting. Jesus says behold I stand at the door and knock, if any man hears my voice and open the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with me. Rev. 3:20. What is this door and where is this door and why is Jesus on the out side trying to get inside? I will answer this question and much more. First of all it is not the door of a building or a house, but rather it is the door of your mind. It says knock then it says hear my voice, which lets us know that he is knocking and calling out to the person on the inside. The matter seem rather urgent. And it is, if you are to be

all that you can be. In other words reach your divine potential in this life time. You have no idea of what you can do, be or have! So yes it is very urgent that we welcome him into our minds in ways of which we have never done before. In another place Jesus said, my sheep or my people know my voice. Which lets me know that we know who it is out side of the door of our mind knocking and calling. Now Jesus has to make a promise to the person on the other side of the door to convince him to open up to Him, He says if you will open I will come in. Look He is not only knocking and calling, He is talking to this person and this person knows who he is. What is going on here? He is not going to force his way in, or pick the lock. He enters in

by invitation only! We must let Him in! I will come in and sup or dine with him and he with me. Jesus makes know his good intention. He wants to teach us how to do the same kind of miracles that He did and even greater one! He has nourishment for your hungry soul with him. When your soul is fed your spirit will be fed and your spirit will nourish your mind. Oh how we in a time like this need for our minds to be nourished by the spirit of God! And a nourished mind will nourish your brain, which will in turn nourish and control your body and your environment. Man does not live by bread along but by every word that proceed out of the mouth of God. Your mind needs some thing that God along can provide. He

said it this way, Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. Who went about doing good, healing all manner of sickness, and disease. This wonderful mind want to be in you, this mind will do wonders for you if you let it. This mind is powerful. It will enable you to think thoughts that you have never been able to think before. You can dine with the master and He will dine with you. What a promise! In Romans chapter12 verse 2: Be not conformed to this world; but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God! Our minds must be renewed on a continued base, daily made new. The purpose of a new mind is for

new truth. Old earth truth or carnal truth will not go in new minds. If we as believes want to grow and advance in the kingdom of God. Men do not put new wine in old wine skins, if they do, the new wine cause the old wine skins to brake and all of the new wine will be lost! So renewed minds are being prepared for NEW TRUTH! What got you here at the spiritual level where you are now, will not take you where you need to go! What you had yesterday is not what you need for today. You can not renew your mind on your own, You need divine help. So ask the holy spirit to help you to renew your mind for today. More on the mind in our next article.

Helpful Tips For Everyday Living :-)

How to Prevent and Help Solve Pet Overpopulation

By Christie Acevedo Over 115.4 million homes in the United States have pets and many of those homes consist of loving, caring and responsible pet owners. Unfortunately, there are many pet owners that do not understand the importance of Spaying and Neutering their pets. The Human Society of the United States estimates that animal shelters in the United States care for 6­8 million dogs and cats every year and about half of those animals are later euthanized because lack of funds and overcrowding. Many of these animals are relinquished by their owners for several different reasons, some for extreme unforeseen hardships and others just because the person was not

willing to understand or work with the pet adopted. Others are caught by animal control officers because one pet, usually cats, are left unaltered and the offspring continue to breed making large feral colonies. There are many ways to do your part to help solve this problem. One way could be donating money to one of the organizations that helps provide financial assistance for spay and neutering. Another way would be adopting a family pet from the animal shelter rather than a backyard breeder, most shelter animals are already are Spayed or Neutered, have shots and many are even micro chipped. Riverside Animal Shelter is now offering $20 adoptions for dogs

and $15 adoptions for cats. These adoption fees are for stray pets that have been at the shelter for 7 days or more and have not yet been adopted. Many other Inland Empire shelters are offering similar adoption rates. The last and most important way would be to spay or neuter your pets, there is assistance to help reduce the cost. Many people find it hard to afford to pay the high cost of spaying and neutering and some feel like it could wait or it really is not that important. As pet owners it is our responsibility to see to it that our pets are well cared for and as animal lovers it is our responsibility avoid adding to the overpopulation problem. There are many programs

available to help with the costs of pet sterilization and there are also low cost clinics. POPCO, Pet Overpopulation Coalition, Inc. (1­ 888­767­2550) provides vouchers for San Bernardino County Residents in the amount of $25 for cats and $50 for dogs for a large list of Veterinary clinics. In addition to POPCO, there are several others such as Actor's and Others for Animals (818)755­6045 , who serves most Southern California Residents and will also pay part of the cost to spay or neuter your pet. The Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center has the "Lifeline" program. If you are mid to low income, live in certain parts of Riverside or meet other criteria you may be eligible to have the

spay or neuter done for $5 for a cat and $10 for a dog. There are also many clinics offering services for as low as $25 to spay or neuter cats and $35 to spay or neuter dogs depending on weight. Make sure to call around, some are very expensive compared to others but if you look around enough you are sure to find one with a price you can afford. For more information you could also join an Inland Empire Group with many resources and recommendations for pet owners. To join go to: oup/iefurryfriends It does not take wealth to be a great pet owner, it takes a lot of love, understanding and often times a little assistance.

By Kim D. Davis I want to make this a place where you will receive hope and encouragement. I want to help to find your way through some of the darkest hours of your life. Before beginning this blog, I thought long and hard about what I wanted to accomplish. My Mission is to provide a forum for encouragement which in turn leads to empowerment. Prior to being tragically captured by multiple sclerosis (MS), I enjoyed a fantasy existence. I was a great white shark swimming in a highly competitive and vast sea. Since realizing I must salvage my extraordinary life, I have been motivated by my MS to swim in

the sea of service. My gifts, talents, and skills were sought by the famous, by those who live an opulent lifestyle. I don’t share this with you to boast about my former life, but to illustrate how deeply and quickly a person can plummet from the heights to the depths. Are you swimming in the depths? Let’s share our journeys and help me, by letting me help you. A friend once told me, predator or prey, all must adapt or die. Since being struck by multiple sclerosis, I have decided that dying would be easy and adapting to MS is beyond challenging. The important concept is I have learned how to adapt, and my blog site is meant

to help you learn to adapt and survive. I am disabled, yet I have a sense of humor which most interpret to be witty. One joke I often use is saying hello to someone and then I add, okay, hell is low, and laugh. However, this is an ostentatious defense mechanism helping me cope with the fact that I enjoyed a fantasy existence until I was violated by MS. I remain battered, but not beaten, I live each micro­ millisecond filled with pain, but I have found again an appreciation for life. I suffer, yet I survive. I experience poverty, but I have a plan. Part of that plan is service, service to people like me. I have

managed to integrate all my education, all my transferable skills, and all my life experiences to salvage my extraordinary life. I have skillfully mastered my craft by simply paying attention to the need for a lifetime of continuing education. We must remember that, while we might not be able to perform as we once performed, the accomplishment is to discover other avenues of satisfaction and achievement. I am disabled, but I am free to be innovative, limited only by my inspirations. The same applies to you. You are rich with intelligence, understanding, and skills. You are rich with life. Lets travel together for a bit and help one

another. Acknowledgment is the first step of any process. Take that step and then the next ones with me. No matter what your situation is, let’s explore life together. I have learned that with motivation, dedication, and common sense you can accept the realities of your experiences so you can live again! God does not subject us to more than we can endure. The initials DFTD can also stand for Dignity for the Disadvantaged, or whatever you need this site to be. I hope to speak to all people who are going through rough times. Please let’s share this journey at:

How To Calculate Finance Charges

By Peter Kenny Having some knowledge of how to calculate finance charges is always a good thing. Most lenders, as you know, will do this for you, but it can helpful to be able to check the math yourself. It is important, however, to understand that what is presented here is a basic procedure for calculating finance charges and your lender may be using a more complicated method. There may also be other issues attached with your loan which may affect the charges. The first thing to understand is that there are two basic parts to a loan. The first issue is called the principal. This is the amount of money that is borrowed. The lender wants to make a profit for his services (lending you the money) and this is called interest. There are many types of interest from simple to variable. This article will examine simple interest calculations. In simple interest deals, the amount of the interest (expressed as a percentage) does not change

over the life of the loan. This is I = P R T often called flat rate or fixed interest. The simple interest Simple interest math problems can be used for borrowing or for formula is as follows: lending. The same formulas are Interest = Principal × Rate × used in both cases. Time When money is borrowed, the Interest is the total amount of total amount to be paid back equals the principal borrowed interest paid. plus the interest charge: Principal is the amount lent or Total repayments = principal + borrowed. interest Rate is the percentage of the principal charged as interest each Usually the money is paid back in regular installments, either year. monthly or weekly. To calculate To do your math, the rate must the regular payment amount, you be expressed as a decimal, so divide the total amount to be percentages must be divided by repaid by the number of months 100. For example, if the rate is (or weeks) of the loan. 18%, then use 18/100 or 0.18 in To convert the loan period, 'T', the formula. from years to months, you Time is the time in years of the multiply it by 12. To convert 'T' to weeks, you multiply by 52, since loan. there are 52 weeks in a year. The simple interest formula is Here is an example problem to often abbreviated: illustrate how this works.

How to Get IRS Help and Income Tax Relief

The IRS aggressively pursuing tax cheats, tax audits are steadily on the rise. In 2008, the IRS collected $ 56.4 billion in tax revenue – $ 7.7 billion more than in 2006. Nearly 1.4 million Americans were tested in 2008, brought little more than 1% of all income. Individuals and businesses – large and small – can be financially paralyzed in the current economic downturn if they fail to meet their tax obligations. ­ Tax Help With Obama proposes to increaseTax enforcement budget and hire hundreds of new IRS agent on, against offshore tax evaders, and reported income, it is important for taxpayers to avoid or fix such tax audits and financially for the prevention of disability taxes. Whether you are a few that report under most or all of your income, the penalties are harsh. In

addition, the IRS will consider a tax­cheating and fraud are guilty, for even the smallest amount ofunderreported income. ­ Tax Help With the growing public deficit proposed government bail­out plans and include a push to the $ 345 billion tax gap, we will see greater enforcement of tax collectors who are likely to focus on their compliance efforts on small businesses. Business owners are usually the largest group of tax evaders, particularly during an economic downturn, and there are far too many entrepreneurs over their shoulders in fear of theIRS. Are in the current economic downturn, we see many companies struggling to fell to deposit payroll taxes. Experts and entrepreneurs need to protect the fiscal agent for the future of their businesses and avoid IRS taxes on their wages, bank accounts and

customer receivables. Several states have already begun to cut more money and staff to crack down on tax cheats – large and small – in their growing budget deficits. They haveLetters to warn small businesses to them of the consequences of not collecting or adopt, state wage and sales taxes. The good news is that in anticipation of the newly aggressive tax planning enforcement is the IRS taxpayer, offering unprecedented opportunities to solve their tax problems. For example, the IRS is limited amnesty for taxpayers' money abroad hidden in a new voluntary disclosure procedure.

Eight Steps to Thrive Financially After Your Divorce By Joseph Carter A divorce can be devastating and negatively impact both spouses. Whether you are the man or wife, it is likely that you will encounter some sort of economic hardship following your divorce. If your monetary resources are not supervised properly, the situation can be exacerbated and made even worse. It is critical to remember that a divorce can cause more than just emotional trauma, in some situations it can lead to financial devastation. Here are a few tips that will help you avoid some of the most common problems and allow you to thrive after a divorce:1. Before you file for divorce assure that it is really, truly your best option and that reconciliation and constructing a happy marriage is simply not a possibility. Consider not just the emotional effects but also the economic and financial

conditions for your post­divorce life. Financial loss can be the consequence if you don't carefully consider your true situation post­divorce.2. If you have stomached ill­treatment from your partner such as verbal abuse, physical abuse, and mental abuse, you should document those specific events for future use in your court case. These issues can, in certain jurisdictions, make a fundamental difference in the result of your divorce case. If you have children and are likely to get primary custody it is your right and duty to request and get child support to help cover the expenses of raising children.3. Understand the significance of objectively considering your post­ divorce conditions, particularly your financial position. Produce a spreadsheet and realistically look at how much money you will need each month to deal with

your expenses. This may involve making some assumptions, like how much your housing and utility expenses will be in a new residence. Then equate these expenses to your typical monthly income, along with any child support you expect to get, and see how your monthly income compares to your monthly expenses.4. It is very normal for individuals to call for lifestyle alterations following a divorce in order to . One thing to do when preparing for a divorce is to start saving cash in a bank account in which you are the sole account holder (in other words, your partner cannot empty the account). This money can be of great assistance during the divorce process if you find yourself short on funds. That is not to say you should "hide" the money, you should let your lawyer of its existence and never deny that you have it.5. If


A single mother purchases a used car by obtaining a simple interest loan. The car costs $1500, and the interest rate that she is being charged on the loan is 12%. The car loan is to be paid back in weekly installments over a period of 2 years. Here is how you answer these questions:

The Lonely Loon

The distant croon from the lonely loon calls out across the lake Our resident loon, with his signature tune is one you can't mistake Our web footed friend, turns facing the wind then dives for his favorite dish In a moment or two, bobs back into view with a most delicious fish! A Poem By Mike Hubbert AKA "The Poetry Man" possible you want to cut credit card debt and other financial obligations before the divorce. It is also essential to establish your own credit, if you don't have credit available to you already. As I remarked above, you want to open your own bank accounts so you don't have to worry about your spouse and emptying out all of the accounts unexpectedly and leaving you without any available cash.6. A minute plan created prior to pursuing a divorce case is extremely helpful in addressing and avoiding any lengthy financial challenges. If your standard of living is going to go down after the divorce, you want to discover this as early in the process as possible so that you can plan and act accordingly. Consult friends that have been through a divorce and can advise you as to how to best manage the post­divorce finances.7. Find out as much as you can about the

assets that you and your spouse have. If you are the spouse who has facilitated the finances during the union, great. If you're not, this will call for some additional study on your part. In order to get a fair property division in your divorce case you will need to be very knowledgable about what assets exist. This is an area where a qualified family lawyer can be of extremely helpful.8. If you are awarded land in the property division, make sure that any necessary deed transfers are done along with your divorce. It is not enough that your divorce decree says that you're awarded the land, there must also be a deed, recorded with the correct authorities, which reflects your sole ownership of that property.
