I was sent this story as a PowerPoint presentation today by a friend. I thought that it was wonderful and I needed to share it with all of you. .
Two men both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the rooms only window.
The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.
The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation.
Every afternoon, when the man in the bed could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roomate all the things he could see outside of the window. The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and colour of the world outside.
The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst folwers of every colour and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.
As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene. One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man could not hear the band, he could see it in his minds eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.
Days, weeks and months passed.
One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.
As son as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.
Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside. He strained to slowly turn and look out the window beside the bed.
It faced a brick wall.
The man asked the nurse what would have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall. She said, Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.
There is tremendous happiness in making others happy despite our own situations. Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled. If you want to feel rich, just count all things you have that money cant buy. Today is a gift that is why it is called The Present
There are so many points for you to take from this story:
We are all so busy trying to make it in life that we often miss how grateful we should be for the smaller things in life, like, having someone to talk to or someone to share our day with.
What a wonderful thing it is to make someone elses day a little brighter, no matter what is going on in yours. If you take on this attitude then you will attract more of the same into your life. It really is a win-win situation.
The power of visualisation to change our lives completely. You can take yourself to a different place, where life may be as you want it. You can take yourself to a place where you are feeling different emotions. It shows that through visualisation you have the power to create a different life for yourself. If you want something different in your life and you want it immediately then visualise yourself having it.
Today is a gift that is why it is called The Present. You want to be visualising your future goals, but dont forget to live in the present, in the moment. Be grateful for all you have and enjoy the time you have right now. It is said that a year in the future is closer to you than 10 minutes ago because you can never go back to that time, only forward.
Grasp life with both hands. Be grateful for everything you have right now, big or small. Use visualisations to picture what your future will be.
I hope you enjoyed the story as much as I did.
Every business established in China, whether domestic or foreign, is required to have a legal representative. He/she is the main principal of the company and is the employee with the legal power to represent and enter into binding obligations on behalf of the company in accordance with the law or articles of association of the company. Essentially, the legal representative is someone who is appointed to act on the companys behalf and Article 38 of the General Principles of Civil Law of the Peoples Republic of China defines the role as the responsible person who performs the duties and powers on behalf of a legal person in accordance with the law or the constituent documents of the legal person.
However, foreign investors often have only a limited understanding of the legal representatives role and are startled when they learn of their power and how difficult it is to replace an un-cooperative one. Legal representatives possess broad powers and potentially unlimited liability. When concluding a contract a legal representatives acts are binding on the company even if he/she is acting beyond their authorized scope. Failure to properly understand the powers and responsibilities of a legal representative can therefore lead to a situation where foreign investors are held to ransom. In appointing a legal representative, it is vital to bear in mind that the legal representative will essentially have the full keys to the company, cash, and capital.
Amendments to the PRC Company Law require a new company established on or after January 1, 2006 to appoint a supervisor, or board of supervisors depending on the size of the company, whose role is to monitor the activities of the legal representative. Shareholders and employee representatives of a company can act as supervisors. However, members of the companys board of directors or senior management may not simultaneously serve as supervisors. If a company has a board of supervisors, it must have a proportion of employee representatives which accounts for at least one-third of supervisory membership. The supervisor, like the companys directors, is not required to reside in or visit China.
The main role of the supervisor is to safeguard and supervise the operation of a company and exercise supervision over the work of directors and senior management. The Company Law gives supervisors an array of powers, such as inspecting the companys finances, supervising the company directors and senior managers, recommending dismissal of directors or senior managers who violate laws or damage the companys interests, proposing shareholder meetings, and any other powers specified in the companys articles of association.
The role of supervisor is very relevant to the potential liabilities of the legal representative as they are permitted to supervise and constrain the legal representative in order to reduce the potential risks of a rogue legal representative acting on behalf of the company.
The movie “The Secret” made popular the ‘law of attraction’. The movie focused on the power of our thoughts and how they impact our lives. This is not a new concept. Throughout history, successful people understood the power of attracting what they wanted into their lives.
Not everyone believes in the power of the ‘law of attraction.’ Are you a believer or are you skeptical about the ‘law of attraction’ because you feel it’s not realistic? Reality is akin to perception. Perception is a choice, not a fact. How do I know that? Look around – does everyone think alike? I don’t think so. If perception was a fact, then all of us would share the same views.
For this moment, can you be open to the belief that our thoughts create our reality? If we decide to change our thoughts directing them towards good and abundance, we will attract more of that into our lives. You can return to your original beliefs, but read below to see if any of the words attract you to creating new thoughts around yourself.
Here are ways you can bring the ‘law of attraction’ into your life:
Serendipity, coincidence, fate, the advantages of being in the right place at the right time are all expressions of what is generally known as the laws of attraction. You acquire whatever you concentrate your energy, thoughts and feelings on, positive and negative alike. Your thoughts act as a self-fulfilling prophecy, requesting to the universe what you desire most. If you focus your attention on the good that will come from your actions, you will experience an increase in your productivity. Use this positive energy in all of your work efforts.
This is a time when the ‘law of attraction’ can help you out. You have to emit positive vibrations, which will help you to help yourself. The thoughts and the feelings that you generate will move the universe and help you out.
Try to concentrate on your needs. Practice your positive affirmations. Clearly state them in your mind. Then, try to concentrate on the feelings you have and imagine how you will feel if you actually attain these great things.
All parents know how stressful parenting can be. It involves a lot of responsibilities. As a parent, you want to protect your children from harm as well as ensure that they grow up to be caring and responsible young adults.
The ‘law of attraction’ can help your children stay safe and attain a happy life. You need to focus on things you want for your children, rather than thinking about what you DON’T want for them. Instead of hoping your child is not in a car crash, fails school or is hurt by someone, concentrate on what you want for your child. Whenever your anxiety starts to surface, visualize how your child would feel with loving thoughts coming his or her way. A child would bloom under such loving light.
Negative views of our bodies decrease our well-being. Question yourself around your thoughts. Do you think it is difficult to lose weight? Does your definition of fitness include depriving yourself of good food or keeping yourself hungry? Are you bogged down by your past inability to lose weight? Does exercising seem like an awful job to you? Are you intending to lose a lot of weight as quickly as possible or are you willing to be patient and make the sort of long-term changes that will keep those extra pounds away for good?
This is the topic that you can search on the internet and not find an answer that will satisfy you. This is the topic that all those people who don’t believe in Law of Attraction use to try to prove their case. These non believers use the argument that says “if Law of Attraction is true and really worked, then are you telling me that 6,000,000 Jews manifested, chose, and attracted their own death in the holocaust?”
Then the non believers go on to mention 911, slavery, young children raped and killed, babies being murdered and any atrocity they can put forth. They assert the following as the base of their argument. “So if Law of Attraction were a real law of the universe, then I must accept the belief that all these atrocious death scenarios were chosen and attracted by the victims. Are you saying that the victims are to blame for their own deaths?
I must admit it sounds like a great argument and who could possibly explain this? I, also, admit I searched and searched all over the internet and could not find one LOA guru who could explain this argument properly from the side of the believers of Law of Attraction. All the great Law of Attraction gurus don’t really like to deal with this argument and its corresponding set of questions.
It is almost comical to watch them try to sweep this one under the rug. They know that any explanation that you offer to all these Jewish people is going to infuriate them and elicit rage and anger if you in any way try to tell them that these Jews “attracted” this fate with their vibration.
The same, of course, holds true with the loved ones of those who died in the 911 holocaust or the descendants of slaves. I call 911 a holocaust very properly but for reasons that are really the subject of a whole other article or book. Now also the parents and loved ones of murdered children and babies are not going to accept that these children and babies chose and attracted their gruesome deaths through their vibration.
So this argument is the great debate and the great divide between those who believe in Law of Attraction and those who do not. Yet there really doesn’t seem to be any great debate going on because not one person has offered an adequate argument on the side of those who believe in Law of Attraction. And, their simplified answers or even no answers that “insinuate” that these individual’s vibrations have indeed attracted these ugly circumstance scenarios, even further infuriate those non believers and loved ones.
Now of course I choose not to offer some anonymous argument on the side of Law of Attraction but I must tell you that my name is Seth Manne and I’ am the author of a new book entitled “Manifesting The Ultimate: Perfect Health, Massive Wealth, True Love and Infinite Happiness. Why on earth would I tackle a subject like this which can stir the angst of so many people? It is almost like it is the anti-thesis of my own book. “This” would appear to be manifesting the worst, atrocious, ugly, inhumane of possible circumstances and scenarios…would it not?
Experimental determination of reaction rates depends upon the nature of reaction under investigation. Rates, can be conveniently studied by measuring the suitable physical property of the system as a whole or one of the constituent of the reaction. The rate of a reaction may be influenced by a number of factors like concentration of the reactants, temperature of the reactants, nature of the reacting substances, presence of a catalysts and exposure to radiations.
When a chemical reaction occurs, the reactants change over to products. It is observed that with the passage of time the concentration of reactants decrease while those of products increase. Now, if we assume that other factors are constant than the rate of a chemical reaction decreases in concentration of the reactants.
Cato Gudberg and Peter Waage proposed a qualitative relationship between the rates of reactions and the concentration of the reacting species. This generalization is known as Law of Mass Action. According to this law at a given temperature, the rate of a chemical reaction is directly proportional to the product of molar concentrations of reacting species with each concentration term raised to the power equal to numerical coefficient of that species in the chemical equation. The rate of reaction when the concentration of each reactant is taken as unity is termed as its rate constant.
The value of rate constant gives an idea about the speed of a reaction. Greater is the value of rate constant, faster is the reaction. Each reaction has a definite value of rate constant at a particular temperature. The value of rate constant also depends on the temperature i.e., changes with change in temperature, but is independent of the concentration of reacting species.
The rate expressions which have been given on the basis of law of mass action are written on the basis of the balanced chemical equations. These expressions may or may not give the actual dependence of the reaction rate on concentrations of reacting species. It is because the actual relationship between the concentrations of reacting species and the reaction rate is determined experimentally and is given by the expression called rate law expression. Theoretically a chemical reaction takes place due to collisions between the particles of the reactants. The number of reacting species (atoms, ions and molecules) which must collide simultaneously in order to bring about the chemical reaction is called molecularity of the reaction. The molecularity of a reaction can be 1, 2, or 3. the decomposition of ammonium nitrate could be termed as a unimolecular reaction. The reactions involving simultaneous collision between two species is a bimolecular reaction like the dissociation of HI. In the same way, reactions involving collision of three species may be termed as trimolecular reactions. So in simple terms, chemical reaction mlecularity is simply the sum of molecules of the different reactants as represented by the balanced chemical equation in an elementary reaction.
The universe that we live in was created in perfection. There was no random act that could have taken place to form and create the universe it was and is directed by God, the Father. Upon creating this life and the earthly world in which we now live there were a set of governing laws established to manage and maintain perfect order.
These spiritual laws have existed since before the world was and affect our lives each and every moment whether we are aware of them or not. In establishing these laws God saw to it that there was and always will be a perfect balance in all things, for in this perfect balance there is love.
One of these spiritual laws is the law or balance or equilibrium. So that the world does not self-destruct or reach utopia the Law of Equilibrium was created as a governing law that balances lopsided perceptions. Think for a moment about a child. If two children are at odds with one another and things escalate to the point of hitting and screaming the parent will intervene as a peacemaker to balance the dispute. If the parent is frustrated or angry and pulls the children apart they will join forces peacefully to balance the conflict of the parent.
And if the parent sides against one child and disciplines only one the other child will rally in support of the one being chastened. The balance of perfection is always with us and works to equilibrate the one-side or lopsided views, opinions, and perceptions that we mortals face.
Equilibrium or balance is the perfect harmony of all things. Finding the holistic harmony of life on the individual basis takes practice. As human beings we are holistic in nature, yet many people are unaware of their role in the balance of the universe, and are less aware of the synthesis of the mind, body and spirit as they relate to living a healthy and vital life.
In order to achieve balance it is essential to examine all seven areas of life and balance out the misperceptions and misaligned aspects of life to come back into perfect harmony and holistic balance as God intended each person to be. The seven areas of focus are spiritual, mental, physical, familial, social, vocational, and financial.
Bringing each area into alignment or balance requires careful self examination and personal commitment in order to become a loving, nurturing holistic being, not just of the self, but also of the world around each one of us.
The D word can be devastating to many married people. It almost seems that if you say the word divorce there will be no turning back. Often a person will contact me to discuss a legal separation when they really are intending a divorce but divorce is too fearful and final sounding. It seems to be a first step measure. I find that there is wide misunderstanding of the term.
To add to the confusion, there is a difference between being separated and a formal decree of separation. A couple separates when one or both of the parties determine they no longer want to continue in the marriage and they part ways and set up individual residences. Sometimes this may merely be a cooling off period and the parties reconcile. Other times this is a prelude to filing for divorce. Income earned, debt incurred and property obtained is considered separate property if acquired after the date of separation.
A formal decree of separation is handled much like a divorce (technically called dissolution) The property is divided, there is a parenting plan and child support orders are made. The difference between the two decrees is that the marriage is not dissolved and the parties may not remarry. The most common reason individuals have for obtaining this decree is for religious reasons.
If a petition is filed for legal separation, it can be converted to a dissolution. Either party can request this. A dissolution requires a ninety day waiting period between filing the petition and obtaining the decree. A decree of legal separation has no waiting period. If one party wants a legal separation and the other wants a divorce, there will be a divorce.
I often remind my clients that just because they filed a petition to dissolve their marriage does not mean the divorce is automatic. The parties can withdraw the petition at any time before the final decree is granted. One judge relayed to me that a couple withdrew the petition in front of him as they were finalizing the divorce!
It is important to consult with a family law attorney to assess your options if you or your spouse is considering a marital separation. A family law attorney can explore alternatives for you and help you preserve your rights. I family law attorney will not try to talk you into a divorce and will help you consider all alternatives.
I am a strong proponent of mediation or collaborative divorce. Even when considering only a separation, this process can help you make good decisions for your children and your financial future. A cooperative divorce or separation helps you save time, money, emotional trauma and preserve your privacy

In a concerted effort against sex trafficking, the FBI recently last Monday arrested 150 people, recovered 105 minors ranging in age from 13 to 17 years old, across 76 cities involving 236 law enforcement agencies in a three day action dubbed -Operation Cross Country-. Since year 2005, 2700 minor age children have been recovered in similar law enforcement actions. In Tennessee, 7 were arrested in Knoxville and 3 in Memphis while 3 children were rescued. This came about even as most states amended laws increasing penalties against the crime of sex trafficking while at the same time modifying certain rules that would allow government to prosecute offenders more effectively.
The news story relates how inadequate the government services are to respond to the needs of victims surviving the tragic events. Rehabilitative services are at present inadequate. In response to this need, Tennessee has prepared a comprehensive plan involving all stakeholders- state departments and agencies, survivors, victim advocacy groups, NGOs, law enforcement agencies, civic groups and institutions, legal aid, to rehabilitate victims, provide medical and non-medical care, and other forms of assistance for reintegration of survivors into the community.
Given the magnitude and scope of the problem of survivor rehabilitation and the inadequacy of the services at the community level, it is no wonder that pro bono services providing legal aid to victims and survivors is urgently needed. Legal advice to survivors at the time of first contact with authorities is needed to temper the enthusiasm of first responders to catch the perpetrators and prosecute them at the expense of the victim. There is the need for legal action to initiate expungement of records of victims to facilitate reintegration of survivors into communities.
The plan formalizes the procedures to be followed by each actor in specific situations. Each situation relates to six areas of concern; criminal and labor law enforcement; victim identification and protection; giving victims access to benefits and services; coordination and delivery of services from providers; education and public awareness promotion; reunification and reintegration – where concrete steps are taken to produce desired outcomes for the victims’ well-being.
The plan, specifically -Tennessee Human Trafficking Services Coordination and Service Delivery Plan- is as comprehensive as it needs to be for it to be effective. It has made mandatory reporting the norm in sex trafficking cases and standardized procedures dealing with every eventuality in promoting the safety and well-being of victims. It has established coordination links with federal departments and agencies comprising the President’s Inter-agency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Human Trafficking.
What the plan lacks are the warm bodies in the community who need to be involved. Learning about such law-related topics and not just about bankruptcy attorneys Nashville TN are worth reading and learning from. 1: By being vigilant and identifying and later reporting child abuse. 2: By caring when victims are reintegrated into the community. 3: By acting individually as professionals giving needed services to assist victims. 4: By giving contributions to NGOs who provide care and services to survivors. Gratis et amore. Pro bono.
