News :Trump May Make History As a 'Great' President

By Madan G Singh When the United States election campaign commenced Donald Trump was not expected to win. Everybody including the political pundits had forecast that the winner would be Hillary Clinton. However, it did not happen that way and the Dark Horse Donald Trump stormed and won the election. He did not have the popular vote when he became president but that is because of the convoluted system of votes in America. Political stalwarts made forecasts that Donald Trump would be impeached. They also said he was unfit to be the president of the United States of America. Water flows down the river and like the Amazon it doesn't flow back. Donald Trump has surprised many people by taking decisions which previous presidents had not touched with a pole.Important decisionsThe decisions that Donald Trump took are going to place Donald on a different footing than the earlier presidents. He has shown that he is a man made of a different metal as he has taken decisions that nobody else …

Business :Legal Intake: The Key to Increasing Conversion Rates

By Mike BrooksIf you are a regular reader of my blog, then you know I work in a variety of industries and with many different companies in those industries. At first, when new companies are going to engage with me, some will ask what kind of experience I have in their specific vertical. My answer is always the same: sales skills and best practice selling techniques are transferrable. Core inside sales skills and strategies work in all industries (that is why they are foundational) and can be adapted to work effectively in other industry. And this is especially true in the legal field. For over a year now, I've been training some of the largest and most successful legal firms in the country and helping their intake teams dramatically increase their conversion percentage of inbound leads. The clients I have worked with have seen as much as a 30% increase and more in conversion percentages using the proven inside sales skills and techniques I've perfected over the last 30 years.…

News :A Child Can't Be Religious

By Oliver JR Cooper As a boy I went to a Church of England school and this meant that there were occasions when I would have to go to church. Additionally, my father was a Christian and he was part of the church choir as a boy.However, I wasn't forced to read the bible and to go to church every Sunday. This was not something that appealed to me and, as the years passed, I often wondered why anyone would feel the need to belong to particular religion.Critical ThinkingI wanted to come to my own conclusions and decide how I would behave; not simply believe what other people had told me and allow these beliefs to define my behaviour. If I was going to join a religion, it would be religion that I had created.But I thought that this would be limiting and I wouldn't want anyone else to simply follow what I had come up with. Doing so would stop them from thinking for themselves, causing them to act as though they were just an extension of me.A Common ExperienceWhen I went shopping ar…

By Chris Atley Right now I am high in the sky on my way to Maui and I am just so excited! My husband and I are here for a week and I am stoked to spend some time together just us (eek) in such a beautiful place!Earlier this week I had a couple of really spectacular things happen. The first was being interviewed on Baeth Davis' podcast. Baeth is an amazing coach and business woman, with building a wildly successful business in hand analysis! I have been following her for years, and I actually met her when I first started my business 11 years ago. I am now happy to call her a friend, fellow soul sister, and it was an absolute pleasure being interviewed on her show We chatted A LOT about coaches shaming other coaches in our industry - I'll let you know when it's live so you can check it out.The second, was slightly mind-blowing and was a true dream come true! My personal development journey started by watching The Secret in Canada, and 11 years later I had a meeting with Joh…

Healthy :What Is Myotonic Dystrophy?

By Amanda J Hales When you hear the abbreviation MD you probably instantly think of muscular dystrophy, the disorder that affects millions and even has its own telethon. It is characterized by kids in leg braces with some in wheelchairs. Another MD however is myotonic dystrophy, which is an offshoot of the main version and the most common form that begins in adulthood. It too is a long term genetic disorder that is characterized by loss of muscle function with gradually worsening symptoms like muscle loss and weakness as the disease continues on its path. While currently there is no cure, doctors can treat the symptoms of the disease, things like cataracts, intellectual disabilities, and various different heart conditions that can accompany the disorder.Myotonic Dystrophy is also characterized by the fact that the muscles contract and then are unable to relax, a state of myotenia which comes from the Greek for muscle 'myo' and the Latin for tension 'tonus'.

Economics :The Danger of Losing Hope for Public Education

By Esther S ParkCurrently, equitable education is not provided on a worldwide scale. Furthermore, the socioeconomic achievement gap is becoming wider apart than ever, leaving many bright minds undiscovered. This inequity in education is unacceptable, as it infringes not only on individual rights but also on society's morality and progression as a whole.I find the issue of education especially personal, as public education was how I overcame my adversities, I grew up in a financially insecure, immigrant family in which I had many household responsibilities. I translated constantly for my parents, and I was expected to pay for my own financial expenses. However, as soon as I poured my energy into school work, I learned that knowledge was an equal playing field. It didn't matter who I was but only what I knew.My free twelve years of schooling has allowed me to become a leader, serve others, and find my voice. I keep this constantly in mind, understanding I am beyond lucky to hav…

Autos :What Do You Do With Your Trailer?

By Amanda J Hales A trailer is one of those things that, if you don't have one you probably don't give much thought to, but if you do can be a real asset. We've all seen them at one time or another, attached to a vehicle and sporting big toys, work supplies or animals. They can be covered in, they can be open but they all do one thing--they make transporting things from point A to point B quick and easy. A trailer is basically a box on wheels that attaches to a van, truck or car and adds instant storage capabilities for you. Moving equipment for yardwork such as tractors, edgers, tools, bags of peat moss, mulch, topsoil and rocks can all be stored and transported in a trailer. They make for easy on and off, especially if you have one with a built in ramp, and it keeps all of your equipment in one place and secure. Have a jetski but can't get it to the lake or beach? No worries, you can tow it behind your car on a trailer. It will be secure on the ride there and back a…

Autos :Animal and Toy Trailers

By Amanda J HalesYou are a farmer and you need to move some livestock from one place to another. What do you do? You are a buyer who needs to move some animals from the farm they were raised to your farm. How do you do that? You have a new big toy, a Jet ski or a motorbike, how will you get that to where you need it to be? The answer to all of these questions is with a trailer, of course. Animals and motorbikes won't fit into a normal vehicle very easily and even if they did, they'd leave a big mess, rip some seats or worse. Trailers are great additions to farms and toy owners alike. They easily and safely transport large or strangely shaped articles and they are great for animals because they allow air in, can be hosed down and have safety features that can ensure everything arrives as it was intended. Animals need air at all times and are known to make the occasional mess. With a trailer you can install rubber mats for ease of footing and have openings for air transfer to o…

This one had two stars, a librarian and a cat.Author Vicky Myron went through some tough times. She overcame a divorce, welfare, completing her college education, a hysterectomy, a mastectomy and obtaining employment as a librarian.One quote mentioned in her background story she had heard was that people have a pain tolerance of ten but won't take action toward change until it reaches nine.

News :A Dream Undone

By Kenlea R BarnesJohn D. Rockefeller, Oprah Winfrey, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Michael Oher, Chris Gardner, all success stories that represent the so-called American Dream. This dream can usually.be described in a ninety-minute movie that we have all seen 100 times and can predict the ending; the "self-made person genre" I prefer to call it. People are constantly told the classic tales of how certain individuals achieved their American Dream, but are rarely asked of how they want to achieve their own. The American Dream was originally written to create a sense of hope and to initialize a feeling of purpose in all people. In 21st century, society has turned the dream into an idol that we strive to obtain, rather than to pursue a life to each American's fullest potential.We live in a world that is full of man-made idols. We worship high paying jobs, satisfactory social status, extensive education, designer clothing, social media, and the list could continue. Society has fou…

Education :Fit for Reading - The Cause of English Dominance

By Charley Pein Little doubt, English is the single dominant global and scientific language in the world today. Mainstream opinions attribute its rise to political, economic, technological and cultural causes, through the influences of the British empire and the USA.However, from the standpoint of our previous papers, our argument is straightforward: legibility [1] is the cause. The evolutionary account was addressed in my paper "visual evolution of written language towards Latin alphabet - a hypothesis". Writing's effects on the world were discussed in "effects of written language on the non-textual world" [2]. We now explicitly discuss this topic is to correct the misconceptions and affirm our argument which can be used to explain the history and present societies, and to predict the future.1. "Being fit for reading" is the causeWe should treat writing as a tool, just like other tools, such as a pen. One pen is better than another not because the p…
