Americans Dream

The mind is like a garden, you have to fertilize it, care for it, boot the tares, i.e. casting out negative thoughts, spider webs that are the fruit of ignorance and neglect prejudices, deciding to daily enrich your most valuable asset: his mind. Years ago, inaugurated a hospital, one of the most advanced in the rehabilitation of drug addicts in the United States. I was impressed by the modernity of construction, how expensive scientific equipment. It was presented with an extraordinary curriculum staff: professional people, doctors, psychiatrists, conductologos, counselors, a group of high academic quality and vast experience in practice. Besides the clinical facilities, playgrounds, that it had They included gymnasium, music rooms, a sports field. In general, denoted a plan remarkably well conceived for recovering addicts, increasing every day.

That country represents 5% of the world’s population and consume 50% of the total production of narcotic drugs; the year 15 million Americans get sick of depression; they spend more than one billion dollars in medicines out of this so common cold currently, which attacks the human spirit and that is often the prelude to drug addiction. The Chairman of the Board of Trustees was the honor of opening the complex and struck me by its brevity, the content of his speech: ‘ gentlemen, we have gathered resources necessary, both financial and professional, to materialize the dream of a group of idealists: save our youth from drugs. We know that the good more than the bad guys are, but the latter are organized. This work demonstrates that well planned generosity makes reality that for many seems impossible. With a single young that we rescue will justify the effort. At that time he cut the symbolic Ribbon; immediately journalists addressed him with a host of questions. One of them gave me all the answers:-don’t you think exaggerated that a single rescued young justifies this investment, of more than 50 million dollars? His response was forceful and definitive: – If you were my son, would be worth it – does have some ideal in life? Why would it be able to bring his life itself? Do you have a dream to be done based on other people? What does currently by achieve it? Idealist is one who is convinced that the impossible is possible; assumes causes of which he has not been responsible: rescuing forgotten children who live in extreme poverty; struggling to save victims of alcoholism; helping those who suffer from serious diseases, often in countries very different from yours; comforting to those who suffer from chronic neurosis.


Ohoven: ‘calls for tender and awarding of the State must be SME-friendly’ Berlin/Bonn, December 18, 2008 the middle class is medium-sized economy (BVMW) for State tenders according to the Federal Association and unsettled contracts, because the Federal Government in the reform of public procurement law will include also award other criteria such as the promotion of long-term unemployed, young people, older people, disabled and women.

The development of the share of public procurement in the middle class depends on decisive by the Result of the procurement law reform down.

“Only if the public procurement law is significantly simplified and dismantled bureaucratic hurdles in the procurement, also small and micro enterprises have higher chance”, says Ohoven. The public procurement law is already very complex and will probably even more restrictive with the amendment. In plain text, this means that the cost for applicant SMEs will rise even more. Instead of bureaucratic procedure, the requirements at the issuing offices as well as applicants become more stringent. Already the smallest substantive or formal errors can mean the exclusion of”the middle-class President continues. In his view, tenders and award of contracts would have to be clearly SME-friendly. These belong for example that have gigantic bundled large-scale projects in the future in several single lots are written out, including micro enterprises and consortia come to the course.

In determining the eligibility criteria must be less than on the possibilities and medium-sized enterprises be taken into consideration”, calls Ohoven. A fair tender must be divided in major projects in partial lots. Also, even small orders should be publicly advertised and not freely given. Also care should be taken at the non-award criteria included in a tender to, that they can reasonably be expected to a medium-sized company.

Due to ongoing censorship efforts organization focused end of January 2008 the focus of anonymous for the first time on Scientology. Scientology suppresses all criticism from inside and outside, exploits its members and attempts to undermine the company. The global anonymous demonstrations to educate the public about the true background of the Scientology organization and people pointing out the risks of this seemingly innocuous organization.

Factoring Provides Collateral

Better ranking in lending through sale of assets conducted a survey the Deutsche Industrie – und Handelskammer confirmed that will be hardly any new export hopes for important sales regions. For 2009 is that with a declining economic performance of 0.5 percent to be expected. The number of the unemployed increase by about 150,000. But these numbers are still quite dare. It is even believed that the second half of the year will look better and increases economic output again. For even more analysis, hear from Jim Umpleby.

However, all companies should even reconsider their investment plans. This way of factoring is an obvious and positive point for many companies should involve. The financial crisis has deteriorated also the credit conditions and higher interest rates produced. Increased the demands on the collateral and the credit for securing the loan. Six percent of the companies have loans were rejected. Particularly small businesses, which have up to ten employees are affected, but also large companies.

But the banks remain While the credit conditions to tighten. While there are also companies who report on better prospects, but the majority should worry to the next investment. Factoring can counteract the process of bad credit conditions and rising interest rates. Company, the factoring opt for a lower need for foreign capital and a higher liquidity. These companies also a better ranking the banks get through this better liquidity situation. In the upcoming financial and weak export situation, factoring is thus an investment opportunity.

However, there is not a right to a stay abroad. The training company must agree to stay abroad and inform the Chamber about, Hartwich said. The willingness to do so for many companies but be there: By regulating businesses have a chance, good students who prefer a Bachelor of education due to the possibility to be able to go abroad for their operation to win. Speaking candidly Kevin Johnson told us the story. A gain in language and intercultural competence, however, wave the trainees.

When the alien in the context of training, is not set. We recommend abroad. the midterm exam, usually after one and a half years to complete, Hartwich said. Because foreign students not in school professional. They need to do the stuff they missed at the time in Germany, independently.

The companies and trainees are free in the choice of the host country. They must find only an operation that picks it up. Stays that take longer than a month, a plan on training objectives and content is also between the operation and the respective Chamber to vote. During your stay abroad, the trainee receives its content further by its German operation. Travel and living abroad he must pay for but themselves, the education expert said. However, there is a wide range of funding opportunities, about the Leonardo-da-Vinci programme of the European Union. Also by the Chambers, there are various programs and advice according to Haija. These are aimed primarily at small and medium-sized enterprises: large. Companies have largely self-taught the structures for an Exchange program, such as branch offices in other countries.
