The Importance of Being Honest
  In the busy city of New York, such an astonishing thing that ever happened.
  On a Friday night, a poor young artist stood at the gate of the subway station, playing his violin. Though the music was great, people were quickly going home for the weekend. In this case, many of them slowed down their paces and put some money into the hat of the young man. (wow gold)
  The next day, the young artist came to the gate of the subway station, and put his hat on the ground gracefully. Different than the day before, he took out a large piece of paper and laid it on the ground and
put some stones on it. Then he adjusted the violin and began playing. It seemed more pleasant to listen to.
  Before long, the young violinist was surrounded with people, who were all attracted by the words on that paper. It said, “Last night, a gentleman named George Sang put an important thing into my hat by mistaken. Please come to claim it soon.”
  Seeing this, it caused a great excitement and people wondered what it could be. After about half an hour, a middle-aged man ran there in a hurry and rushed through the crowd to the violinist and grabbed his shoulders and said, “Yes, it’s you.
You did come here. I knew that you’re an honest man and would certainly come here.”
  The young violinist asked calmly, “Are you Mr. George Sang?”
  The man nodded. The violinist asked, “Did you lose something?”
  “Lottery. It’s lottery,” said the man. (wow power leveling,)
  The violinist took out a lottery ticket on which George Sang’s name was seen. “Is it?” he asked.
  George nodded promptly and seized the lottery ticket and kissed it, then he danced with the violinist.
  The story turned out to be this: George Sang is an office clerk. He bought a lottery ticket issued by a
bank a few days ago. The awards opened yesterday and he won a prize of $500,000. So he felt very happy
after work and felt the music was so wonderful, that he took out 50 dollars and put in the hat. However the
lottery ticket was also thrown in. The violinist was a student at an Arts College and had planned to attend
advanced studies in Vienna. He had booked the ticket and would fly that morning. However when he was
cleaning up he found the lottery ticket. Thinking that the owner would return to look for it, he cancelled
the flight and came back to where he was given the lottery ticket.
  Later someone asked the violinist: “At that time you were in needed to pay the tuition fee and you had
to play the violin in the subway station every day to make the money. Then why didn’t you take the lottery
ticket for yourself?”
  The violinist said, “Although I don’t have much money, I live happily; but if I lose honesty I won’t
be happy forever.” ( world of warcraft power leveling,)
  Through our lives, we can gain a lot and lose so much. But being honest should always be with us. If we
bear ourselves in a deceptive and dishonest way, we may succeed temporarily. However, from the long-term
view, we will be a loser. Such kind of people are just like the water on the mountain. It stands high above
the masses at the beginning, but gradually it comes down inch by inch and loses the chance of going up.

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

This quote from Eleanor Roosevelt is particularly helpful to consider as many of us find ourselves posting our resumes yet again because—despite the pervasive impact of today’s “retracting” economy—it can be easy to think it’s somehow your fault that you’ve re-entered the job market: to beat yourself up thinking, “If only I had done X,” or “If only I hadn’t said Y.”

The trouble with this is that this sense of personal failure has the potential to influence the way you begin to think about your former situation, making it still more difficult to talk about how and why you were let go. With this in mind, then, let’s look at some language you can use to ensure you end up on offense instead of defense.

The Foul Weather Friend Response

You’ve all heard the term, “fair weather friend,” to describe the person who’s always around when the sun is shining and the seas are calm. Unfortunately, foul weather friends also exist—people who miraculously show up in your life the day your divorce papers are delivered, when you find yourself in the emergency room, or during the planning of your parent’s funeral, but are somehow never free to come to your holiday party,
your child’s graduation, or your anniversary celebration. These psychic vampires generally open with, “What happened?” not “What can I do?” as their ultimate goal is not your well being, but instead detail-collecting in an effort to make themselves feel better about what’s going on in their lives, and the boost of self-importance they get from being “there for you.” You will also find they have time to spread your story far and wide.
wow gold
For this particular category I recommend keeping your explanation short and sweet. “Well, we got divorced.” Or, “Well, I got laid off.” That’s it. Further detail is unnecessary. Should they follow up with an, “Oh, I’m so sorry. Did you see it coming?” all you need to say is, ‘Thank you. Yes. (Or no) I appreciate your concern.” They are not entitled to more.

The Potential Employer Response

Obviously things become somewhat more complex when a potential employer asks about the reason behind your changed status. wow power leveling That said, I continue to recommend keeping the particulars of your situation to a minimum, and instead making a broader statement about the state of your industry, “Yes, a number of people in my area were also let go due to downsizing.
world of warcraft power leveling
As you know, my sector was hard-hit due to X, Y, Z” Or, “Yes, an inability to raise our third round of funding necessitated some cuts all around. As you know, venture capital is thin on the ground in this economy.” should suffice. Then use that as a springboard for talking about what you learned from the experience, and how you plan to apply that knowledge to your new position. “What I’ve discovered is that tackling challenges outside my comfort zone actually inspires me—I like a sharp learning curve. This is one of the primary reasons I came in to talk to you. I very much admire the diversified, hands-on approach you ask of your employees.” Or, “What I learned is the value of a good fundraiser, so that’s where I’ve put my energy in the intervening months—very few people look bored when you mention you know how to raise money. With regard to how I might raise money for you, I was thinking of X, Y, Z.”

BEIJING: The world’s centre of gravity has moved to Beijing, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez told his Chinese counterpart on Wednesday during a visit focused on boosting Chinese oil purchases.

‘‘No one can be ignorant that the centre of gravity of the world has moved to Beijing,’’ Mr. Chavez told China’s President Hu Jintao.

‘‘During the financial crisis, China’s actions have been highly positive for the world. Currently, China is last chaos gold, the biggest motor driving the world amidst this crisis of international capitalism,’’ said Mr. Chavez in preliminary remarks before reporters were ushered from the meeting room at Beijing’s Great Hall of the People.

Earlier, buy last chaos gold, Mr. Chavez said he planned to review with Chinese leaders a goal of boosting exports of Venezuelan oil to China from 3,80,000 barrels last year to 1 million barrels by 2013 — part of Venezuela’s strategy of diversifying oil sales away from the United States, which buys about half the South American nation’s heavy crude despite political tensions.

Included in that last chaos money, strategy are plans for China and Venezuela to build four oil tankers and three refineries in China capable of processing Venezuela’s crude.

China and Venezuela have also invested in a $12-billion fund to finance joint development projects in areas including oil production, last chaos gold, infrastructure and agriculture.

Mr. Chavez has made Beijing a frequent stop in his global travels to promote his agenda of anti-American world unity, stopping in the Chinese capital six times since taking power in 1998 elections.

His visit follows a sweep through West Asia last week, last chaos money, including a stop in Iran where he said he has little hope of better relations with Washington under President Barack Obama because the United States was still acting like an ‘‘empire’’ in his eyes.

Following his arrival in Beijing on Tuesday night, Mr. Chavez said his two-day visit to Beijing this week is part of the creation of a ‘‘new world order’’.

‘‘We are creating a new world, a balanced world. A new world order, a multipolar world,’’ said Mr. Chavez. ‘‘The unipolar world has collapsed. The power of the U.S. empire has collapsed,’’ he said.

‘‘Everyday, the new poles of world power are becoming stronger. Beijing, Tokyo, Tehran ... it’s moving toward the East and toward the South.’’

China, with its $2 trillion in foreign reserves, has responded to the global crisis with a 4 trillion yuan ($586 billion) plan to pump money into the economy through higher public works spending in hopes of boosting domestic consumption. — AP

The Selfish Giant

Every afternoon, as the children were coming back from school, they used to go and play in the giant's garden.

It was a beautiful large garden. Beautiful flowers grew in the grass. There were twelve fruit trees. In the spring the fruit trees were covered with red and white flowers, and later in the year they bore rich fruit. The birds sang in the trees so sweetly that sometimes the children stopped their games and listened to them. "How happy we are here!" they cried to each other.
world of warcraft power leveling,
One day the giant came back. He had been away for seven years. When he arrived, he saw the children playing in his garden. "What are you doing here?" he cried in a very loud voice. The children ran away.

"My own garden is my own garden," said the giant. "I will allow no one to play in it but myself. "So he built a high wall round it and put up a notice: Keep out. He was a very selfish giant.
world of warcraft gold,
So the children had nowhere to play. They tried to play on the road, but the road was dusty and full of hard stone, and they did not like it. They wandered round the high walls when their lessons were finished and talked about the beautiful garden inside. "How happy we were there!" they said to each other.

The spring came, and there were flowers and little birds all over the country. But in the garden of the Selfish Giant it was till winter the birds did not like to sing in it because there were no children, and the trees forgot to bear flowers. Snow covered up the grass, and ice covered all the trees with silver. The north wind came, and driving rain.

"I can't understand why the spring is so late in coming," said the Selfish Giant as he sat at the window of his house and looked out at his cold white garden. "I hope that there will be a change in the weather."

But the spring never came, nor the summer. When there was golden fruit in every other garden, there was no fruit in the the giant's garden. It was always winter there with the north wind, and snow, and ice, and driving rain.

The giant was lying in bed one morning when he heard some beautiful music. It was a little bird singing outside his window. It was so long since he had heard the song of a bird that it seemed to him the most beautiful music in the world. Then the north wind and the rain stopped.

"I believe that spring has come at last!" said the giant. He jumped out of bed and looked out.

What did he see?

He saw a most wonderful sight. The children had come in though a hole in the wall and were sitting in the branches of the trees. There was a little child in every tree that he could see. The trees were so glad to have the children back that they had covered themselves with flowers: the birds were flying about and singing with joy, and flowers were looking up through the green grass.

A little boy was standing in the farthest corner of the garden. He was so small that he could not reach up to the branches of the tree, but was wandering round it and weeping. That tree was still covered with ice and snow.replica watches,

"How selfish I have been!" said the giant. "Now I know why the spring would not come here. I'll put the little boy on the top of the tree. Then I'll pull down the wall and my garden shall be a children's playground for ever." He was really sorry for what he had done.

So he went down: he opened the door very quietly, and went out into the garden. But, when the children saw him, they were afraid and ran away. Only the little boy did not run: his eyes were so full of tears that he did not see the giant coming. The giant came quietly behind him. He took the little boy gently in his hand and put him up into the tree. Then the tree was suddenly covered with flowers, and the birds came and sang in it, and the little boy put his arms round the giant's neck and kissed him.

"You must tell him to come tomorrow, he must come tomorrow." "We don't know where he lives. We had never seen him before." The giant felt very sad.
World of Warcraft power leveling,
Every afternoon when school ended, the children came and played with the giant. But the little boy whom the giant loved was never seen again. The giant was very kind to all the children, but he did want to see his first little friend. "How much I would like to see him!" he said.

How influentital the Media on Teens Are
     It has been a hot topic discussed heatedly for the time being that how indeed the media influence our teens. Different peopie  come  up  with  different opinions. The following passages are two different comments given by several  teenagers ranging from 15 to 20.
World of Warcraft power leveling,
      One, World of Warcraft power leveling Teens are the most influenced and the easiest to be influenced by
last chaos gold,the media.last chaos gold The media influence the way they dress, talk and conduct themselves. From the latest trends to the coolest celebrities, they imirate what they see, whether it's Katie Holmes's new haircut or the pink shirt that Christina Aguilera wore. So it follows that more serious actions like carrying arms or doing drugs could be copied as well.
aoc power leveling,
      Young people are impressionable.aoc power leveling Therefore, some request that the media should take responsibility by changing some of the content of their shows  especially those for teens. They are huge consumers of media, so networks should show them respect by promoting positive images. They think some shows confuse the lines between entertainment and life.The producers know their audiences are young, so they should realize that teens watching "reality" shows might not be able
aoc power leveling,
to tell the difference between fantasy and fiction.aoc power leveling
      Opposing voices have also come from others. They think that they use the media--magazines, television and movies--to connect to one another and to the world, so naturally,they're influenced by the images the media present. For example, a boy would be lying if he said he didn't want to be like Brad Pitt. Pitt's flawless style, good looks and moneymaking talent seem to define what's "cool".
Final Fantasy XI GIL,
     Nevertheless,Final Fantasy XI GIL those teens hold that the media only provide information, what they as viewers do with that knowledge is up to themselves. They have to learn to make their own choices and accept responsibility for their actions. To blame entertainment figures for certain crimes committed by teens is
aion kinah,
It's not the fault of TV.aion kinah Media are an expression of our culture--not the cause. It's time we stop making the media a scapegoat for our nation's problems. It's not the media's job to make sure kids understand what they're watching; that responsibility belongs to parents. Parents and schools should dedicate more time to establishing clear rules of discipline.The influence of parents and teachers--the teens' true role model--carries more weight with teenagers than what they hear on the radio or see at the movies.
